Sweetness Near Me chapter 4

Chapter 4

Wen Lai put down her schoolbag, seeing the front seat empty she asked Lin Hanjia: “Where did he go?”

Lin Hanjia glanced at the xiaolongbao[1] in her hands, and joked: “Bringing breakfast for your family’s[2] handsome Cheng Rou again, as soon as he set foot into the classroom he was dragged off to the cafeteria by Jiang Shu, so you should eat it yourself.”

Right when Wen Lai heard the phrase ‘your family’s handsome Cheng Rou’ her face immediately flushed red, stammering: “Don’t, don’t speak nonsense, he, he isn’t my family’s, I……I’m just thanking him for helping me pass through.”

“Yes ok alright, you are just thanking him for helping you pass.” Lin Hanjia took out the math papers from yesterday, and placed it in front of her, “Copy it quickly, it’s going to be collected in five minutes.”

“Oh.” Wen Lai stuffed a xiaolongbao into her mouth, copying the paper as she ate.

“Ah ah ah, it’s over all over!” She stopped writing and shouted out.

Lin Hanjia leaned over and asked: “What is it?”

“The oil dripped onto the paper.” Wen Lai swallowed the remaining piece of xiaolongbao down her throat, she flipped the paper back and forth several times, “Whose is this? Why didn’t they write their name?”

“That’s……Cheng Rou’s paper.”

“Pa!”

Her pen dropped.

“Is it too late for me to escape to the restroom right now?” She asked seriously.

Lin Hanjia looked at the figure not too far away, and answered solemnly: “You might still have just enough time to hide under your desk.”

“That, isn’t that too embarrassing! Do I have any other options available?”

“No.”

An icy voice came from the side.

Wen Lai gulped, as she calmly hid the paper inside her drawer, and turned her head toward the person.

Cheng Rou bent over and picked up the pen off the floor, and handed it to her.

“Thank, Thank you.” Wen Lai took the pen back while trembling.

“En[3].” Cheng Rou looked at her thoughtfully, “What are you do……”

“I’m going under now![2]” She made an action of squatting, but halfway through she realized she didn’t get stopped, she poked out her head, and asked nervously: “Why aren’t you stopping me?”

“Aren’t you the one insisting on going?”

Wen Lai sat back on her chair, and whispered, “I’ve thought it over, and realized that doing so isn’t good, so I won’t go under anymore.”

Cheng Rou was silent for a few seconds, before slowly saying: “I was about to stop you.”

Wen Lai’s eyes brightened.

Cheng Rou continued on, “After all, the table can’t handle you.”

“Pa!”

Her pen cap went flying.

Even though these days she has gained a bit of weight, that’s also because winter is here.

Which girl doesn’t get fatter during the winter rightTAT

Cheng Rou sat down, and asked Lin Hanjia for his math paper.

Lin Hanjia hesitated, “This……uh……”

“Don’t this and that anymore, quickly take his paper out, it’s about to get collected soon, brother here is in a hurry to copy it too.” Jiang Shu urged.

“The paper is here.” Wen Lai slowly took the paper out of her desk drawer.

“Aish, classmate Lai Lai, quicker!”

Jiang Shu doesn’t separate his N and L, every time he calls Wen Lai it always ends up sounding like ‘Wen Nai’, right now calling out ‘Lai Lai’ makes it even harder for people to accept.

Wen Lai slapped the paper onto the desk, gritting her teeth as she said: “I’m called Lai Lai, not your grandma[5]!”

Jiang Shu laughed out, “Yes yes ok, you’re my ancestor[6], give me the paper now.” As he was saying this he stretched out his hand to take it.

“Wait.” Cheng Ruo signaled Lin Hanjia to hand her paper over to Jiang Shu, then he went and grabbed his own paper, closely examining the oil stain at the upper right corner.

Wen Lai saw that he had been looking at it for a while already but still didn’t put it down, and couldn’t help asking: “Is it, that you still smell the fragrance of food?”

He placed the paper further away, as his eyebrows furrowed he replied: “I only smell grease and fat.”

Wen Lai quickly lowered his head: “I was wrong, really wrong, I shouldn’t have been eating xiaolongbao while I was copying your homework, next time I’ll definitely hold onto the chopsticks better so that it wouldn’t drip down.”

Her tone was super sincere.

“Did you finish copying?” Cheng Rou asked.

“Ah? En en, finished.”

“Ok.” He turned back.

“You’re forgiving me just like this?” Wen Lai asked in a daze.

Cheng Rou turned his head back and looked at her, “Do you want to lick it clean then?”

……This joke was so cold.
