Those Sweet Times
Chapter 56 Part 2
Lin Chuyan spoke to Xiang Nuan as he went downstairs to the piano room. All of his attention was on Xiang Nuan and he didn’t notice that his father was looking at him as he passed by the living room.
Lin Xueyuan was watching TV in the living room. After seeing his son go into the piano room, he got up immediately to go upstairs to find his wife.
“Guess what I discovered.” Lin Xueyuan called out to his wife once he entered the bedroom.
Yue Yingying’s face was covered with a facial mask. Upon seeing Lin Xueyuan, she immediately said: “Come here, let me put one on your face.”
Lin Xueyuan felt his scalp tightening, he was in the living room earlier to avoid his wife from putting a facial mask on him. But when he noticed his son’s unusual behavior, he was too excited that he forgot what his wife was doing upstairs.
Lin Xueyuan laid in bed with a facial mask on his face and said to his wife: “Guess what I just discovered.”
“What?” Yue Yingying rubbed Lin Xueyuan’s tummy.
Lin Xueyuan: “What are you doing?”
“I’m just checking to see if you have tummy fat.”
“En.” Yue Yingying was satisfied. She couldn’t stand to see her husband with a beer belly, she would probably abandon her husband if he did.
Yue Yinging retracted her head: “Tell me, what have you discovered?”
“I saw Chuyan go into the piano room, talking with someone on the phone very mysteriously.”
“That’s strange. It’s already bedtime and he’s going to play the piano?”
“Isn’t it strange. Besides, I suspect that he set off some fireworks last night. There’s less fireworks in the basement now.”
“He did it by himself?”
“I’m not sure.”
Husband and wife gave each other a look, each could read from the other’s eyes that they were thinking about the same thing-- --
Spring was finally here.
Lin Chuyan put his cell phone on an adjustable stand. The screen of his phone directly faced his face.
Then he and Xiang Nuan turned on video chat.
Lin Chuyan’s delicate face occupied the whole screen on Xiang Nuan’s cell phone. This was the first time Xiang Nuan had seen such a close-up angle of him.
It made it feel like they were physically very close, so close that it looked as if they were about to kiss.
Xiang Nuan couldn’t help remembering the night they pulled an all nighter study session. She closed her eyes and raised her head up to wait for him to paint her face; it was such a suggestive position. She felt so silly, why did she do that……
She noticed that her mind had wandered off again……
Xiang Nuan pulled her thoughts back and looked at Lin Chuyan again.
The condition of his skin was great as always.
“Lin Chuyan, did you turn on the beauty camera?” Xiang Nuan asked.
“No.” Lin Chuyan cast his eyes down and smiled, his lips slightly curved up.
Xiang Nuan watched his smile and felt ripples in her mind, as if a small carp jumped out of the placid surface of a lake with a splash, leaving ripples in its wake.
The first song Lin Chuyan played was called <A Comme Amour>. Notes flowed out like the moonlight in a quiet night. Xiang Nuan listened with her eyes closed, but couldn’t keep them shut for long, opening them to watch Lin Chuyan’s face.
Xiang Nuan leaned on the bed, watching him.
As he played, Lin Chuyan looked down with a peaceful expression, reminding her of many tranquil and gentle late nights.
The song was peaceful, gentle, and affectionate. Xiang Nuan was captured by the song.
Lin Chuyan suddenly looked up while playing and gave the camera a glance.
His bright eyes and shallow smile were as tender as the spring, but they were like a dagger pierced into her heart, catching her completely unprepared.
Xiang Nuan felt tingly and numb, as if she had been shocked. She felt like she was floating up in a trance.
At that very moment, she could hear her own heart thumping.
It was clear and powerful, like the beating of the drums.
She was so very familiar with this feeling.
