Those Sweet Times
Chapter 58 Part 3

Xiang Nuan didn't know how to face Shen Zemu anymore; she logged off from WeChat and blankly stared into space.

Within less than one second, she received a call from Yang Yin: “Nuannuan, what are you up to? Why aren’t you on the game yet?”

“Oh, oh, I’m coming, I’m coming.”

It was impossible for her to avoid Shen Zemu today because they had to practice as a team for the match tomorrow.

Xiang Nuan was much quieter than usual during training; Shen Zemu was usually quiet to begin with, but today…...he spoke even fewer words.

Only Waiwai who acted as the leader, spoke in the chat. Zheng Dongkai would occasionally chat a bit. The other three members of the team would only give callouts when necessary.

Callouts are abbreviations and terms that players use to inform the team about their location, status, enemy locations, etc.

Yang Yin felt everyone was too quiet tonight and figured it was because they were under too much pressure from the upcoming match tomorrow. When the team finished the first match, Yang Yin said: “Lin Chuyan, sing a song for us. Lighten up the atmosphere.”

“Sure.” Lin Chuyan cleared his throat and started singing: “Chocolate~chocolate~your kiss is like chocolate~ ~ ~”

Xiang Nuan: “......”

She couldn’t stand to hear the word chocolate now.

Suddenly, Shen Zemu spoke: “Do a different song.”

Obviously, he didn’t want to hear the word either.

“Sure.” Lin Chuyan changed to another song and began singing: “You’re a piece of chocolate that I won’t get sick of. I want to slowly-- --”

“Enough!” Xiang Nuan interrupted him. She was going nuts. “Change to a song that has nothing to do with chocolate.”

Lin Chuyan sounded quite innocently: “I thought the songs matched the holiday today.”

“Even so, don’t sing that. All six of us are single, why are you singing about chocolate. Sing ‘Love Song for the Singles.’ ”

“Alright, let me get ready.”

Lin Chuyan quickly covered his phone and turned his head away to laugh.  He was afraid that others would hear him and tried his best to muffle his laughter as his shoulders violently quivered.

Of course, the others in the chat group didn’t notice that.

After a while, Lin Chuyan finally calmed down and started to sing for them.

But after he finished singing, even Waiwai was feeling down now.

Yang Yin was speechless at the result and wouldn’t let Lin Chuyan sing again. She found a playlist of classic music to play for the team. Every song was high energy. No more demoralizing music.

With classical music in the background, Xiang Nuan felt like she had refound her passion, like a warrior ready to charge into battle.

The team could finally play matches normally and Xiang Nuan was finally able to forget the awkwardness.

They finished their training that night earlier than usual. Yang Yin told them to rest well and get ready for tomorrow.

Xiang Nuan was still excited from playing. Lin Chuyan asked her whether she wanted to continue playing.

“Yes. Let’s go find Oblivion…...Hum, Oblivion isn’t on.”

“Let’s find Hu Ge then.”

Chen Yinghu was in the middle of a match, so Lin Chuyan created a chat group and waited for him to join after he’s done.

In the meantime, there were only Lin Chuyan and Xiang Nuan in the group. Lin Chuyan asked Xiang Nuan: “You really haven’t received any chocolate today?”

“No and don’t talk about it anymore.”


Then Xiang Nuan heard very quiet laughter from Lin Chuyan; it sounded like he was trying to suppress it.

Though his laughter was pleasant to hear, the moment Xiang Nuan heard it, a spark went off in her head and she suddenly realized everything. Then she exploded: “It was you? ! It was you! Bastard, bastard, bastard. Lin Chuyan, you bastard!”

“Don’t get angry. I’ll sing for you. Chocolate~chocolate~your kiss is like chocolate~ ~ ~” His deliberate teasing annoyed Xiang Nuan even more.

“Shut up, bastard!”

Lin Chuyan was laughing so hard that he had to rest his head on the desk to catch his breath.

He thought to himself: Xiang Nuan, you’re so cute. How can I let anyone else to grab you away from me.
