The three and a half-year-old Lin Cheng was rubbing a cat at home when mother Lin ran in, “Cheng! Your Aunt Xiu has given birth to a baby!”
Lin Cheng opened his eyes wide, given birth to a baby?
“Mama, can I take the cat along?”
“Cannot, cannot, the hospital doesn’t allow pets.” She led Lin Cheng to go.
Lin Cheng turned his head around to look at the cat. Cat, Cheng cannot bring you, you be good at home. Dare to eat Cheng’s dried fish and beat you after returning.
After a while, Lin Cheng and them arrived right when father and mother Shen came out of the delivery room.
Father Shen was perspiring while mother Shen was reclining on the bed, resting with her eyes closed.
The nurse held the baby and the few people stepped forward to take a look.
“The little girl really resembles Xiu Xiu!”
“Yes ah yes ah,”
Listening to the adult talking, Cheng, who was laying on his stomach on top of his father’s leg, crawled forward with all his might. Younger sister, younger sister, I want to see younger sister!
Lin father held and carried him up, and so Lin Cheng had his wish to see the younger sister fulfilled.
“Waaaaa~” Lin Cheng wailed.
“What happened, Cheng?”
Lin Cheng pointed at the small round dumpling, “You shaved the cat’s hair!”
＊ * *
After a month.
Cheng blinked, staring at the saliva flowing from the tender and fair dumpling. This is, this is……. The hairless cat?
Lightly poked it with his finger, Cheng breathed and smiled foolishly.
The cat was out of favor! Cheng liked this hairless cat more!

7 years old Lin Cheng, 4 years old Shen Xing .
“Cheng, you enter the classroom first, I’ll send Xing Xing to her class.” When father Lin said this sentence, he gently led Xing Xing’s hand, taking her to the kindergarten of the same school.
Lin Cheng looked at their rear view, his lips pursed.
Half an hour later, in the kindergarten door.
“Xing Xing! Xing Xing!”
“Brother Cheng!” Shen Xing pounced over. The small Lin Cheng used his small arms and legs and expanded a great deal of effort to catch Shen Xing.
The two people then squatted in a corner behind the slide. Lin Cheng took out a lollipop and opened it up seriously then fed it into Shen Xing’s mouth. Seeing her lick the lollipop mouthful by mouthful, he was happier than eating it himself.
Shen Xing squatted beside him, feeling that Cheng brother treated her really well.
The school bell rang, Cheng was tangled for a while before standing up.
Shen Xing pulled the corner of him clothes, soon after, Cheng squatted once again.
16 years old Lin Cheng, 13 years old Shen Xing.
“What is this?” Lin Cheng squinted, taking out a letter found inside a book.
Shen Xing blinked, shaking her head.
Lin Cheng opened it up, went through it, his face becoming darker and darker.
Presumptuous! Which bastard is your beloved?! Which bastard is your girlfriend?!
Sincerely and earnestly, “Xing Xing ah, this kind of letter ought to be directly given to the teacher! Now you are in junior high school, he is jealous that you study so well and is trying to distract you! Such a bad person, you must give the letter to the teacher, let him be punished.”
Shen Xing opened her eyes wide, thinking that what Cheng brother said made sense!
The next day of school, she immediately gave the letter to the teacher…….
Lin Cheng 20, Shen Xing 17.
Shen Xing’s college entrance examination, Lin Cheng missed two days of lessons, standing outside the exam door, squatting.
Once the exam was done and she came out, she immediately saw brother Cheng smile, waving at her, and she pounced over.
Lin Cheng’s body was already firm, steady and gently he caught her.
“Hey hey hey, Xing Xing, Where are your eyes looking at?!”
Shen Xing slowly drank a mouthful of warm water Lin Cheng passed her, her finger pointing at their military training guards.
“Brother Xiao looks handsome!”
Lin Cheng’s face turned black, Shen Xing, very good!
“Brother Cheng, why didn’t you get me food from the canteen today?” During the period of military training, there were many people in the canteen, usually Lin Cheng fetched it for her, she could directly eat after arriving.
Lin Cheng’s face was still black, “Humph, don’t you have brother Xiao? Let him fetch it for you!”
Shen Xing blinked, looking at the densely packed dining hall, “forget about it, brother Cheng, I’ll return to the dormitory and eat some snacks!”
Lin Cheng’s eyes opened very wide. Seeing she really walked away, he pursed his lips and pulled her.
Leading her outside, Shen Xing smiled. Her brother Cheng had ordered food since earlier.
He let her eat before she was allowed to go to sleep. Then he went to the military training.
Lin Cheng 23, Shen Xing 20.
After the birthday celebration, Lin Cheng sat beside Shen Xing. Restraining his somewhat trembling legs and also wiping a handful of sweat.
“That, Xing Xing…….”
“Legally, you can already get a marriage certificate…….”
“Cough cough, let’s get a marriage license!”
Shen Xing blinked, “You didn’t prepare anything, and just proposed?”
Lin Cheng pondered, then spoke in deadly earnest, “I’ll make up for it tomorrow?”
Shen Xing thought, how can I agree so easily?
Standing by the gate of the Civil Affairs Bureau, Lin Cheng raised his head to the sky, emotionally holding his tears from flowing out.
Because the first time proposing marriage was too impulsive, he directly proposed marriage with an empty mouth and white teeth, causing him to lead her to the Civil Affairs Bureau’s gate for a total of 6 times, spending 2 years in the process. Diamond ring, fresh flowers, sports car, balloon……. Totally exhausting everything but Shen Xing still didn’t agree.
Instead, it was the sentence on the 6th attempt that made her nod.
Lin Cheng had led Shen Xing for 20 years, she had lovably followed him to many places.
Only this one time, Lin Cheng was led to the most difficult and yet the happiest time.
Lin Cheng said, “I’ll give you my small heart”1
From here on, you are in control of my heart, in control of my life and death…….
Who else when first seeing this started singing 🎶 Last Christmas, I gave you my heart…🎶 in their mind? Just me? Oh, uh, ok…. 👉🏻👈🏻
Since our readers have been very well-behaved this last year, the Three Magic Kings (or rather, our almighty queen Lime) have brought us these sweet snippets of Lin Cheng and Shen Xin’s love story. Albeit simple, they’re very cute and also made me laugh a few times, and just when I was going ‘damn you boy confess already!’ then he boom dropped a bomb x) but she clever, you girls don’t let them short you the required courtship!
1: he said 小心心 [xiǎo·xīn·xīn] = xiao means small, xin is heart; 心 has the same sound as 星 [xīng], which means star, and also her name.
