I Want a Lifetime with You Chapter 149

“Shi Nuan?”

Qin Yue got even more nervous when he noticed that Shi Nuan appeared seemingly inattentive and impatient. He wanted to step forward but he was intimidated by Shi Nuan’s frosty eyes. His body stiffened and he remained there, waiting for her answer.

Shi Nuan glanced at Qin Yue coldly and then she frowned. She did not miss the look on Su Shaoqing, who was obviously waiting for a show. Shi Nuan was upset. No one would have been pleased by a love confession under this situation.

The surroundings were awfully quiet. The autumn breeze was refreshing but yet rather chilly. Qin Yue was feeling a bit cold- he was not sure if it was because of the breeze or the look on Shi Nuan’s face. She looked indecipherable.

“Mr. Qin, you saved my life earlier. I didn’t get the chance to thank you. Since we are here today, I want to thank you for saving me that day. Anything else?” Shi Nuan stared at him and replied in a flat and neutral tone.

Qin Yue was stunned momentarily as he did not expect Shi Nuan would say that. “Nuan, that was a simple effort. I would have helped anyone, needless to say the girl whom I happened to admire. Shi Nuan, what do you think? I am very fond of you. Will you be my girlfriend?”

Qin Yue continued his confession as he glanced at Su Shaoqing, who was still leaning on the side of the car door. He thought to himself that although this man was good looking, he had no manners at all.

Qin Yue obviously preferred to have the conversation with Shi Nuan in private, but Su Shaoqing would not give them any space. Instead, he just stood there and watched.

Su Shaoqing played his role as an audience and he was expecting a show. He had always been frivolous hence, needless to say, social etiquette did not concern him. Moreover, Su Shaoqing was always interested in gossips, especially when they were about Shi Nuan and Fu Chengyan. He would not miss any of it.

On the other hand, Qin Yue needed to work on his self-awareness and sensitivity to other people. Obviously, Shi Nuan had expressed herself very clear, but he still demanded an answer.

Shi Nuan took a deep breath and pinched her eyebrows, “I got it. Anything else?”

“Shi Nuan! Answer me!”

When Qin Yue saw Shi Nuan’s unconcerned look, he raised his tone, “I confessed to you, but you still owe me an answer.”

Shi Nuan could not care less and her remaining little patience had just vanished. She knitted her eyebrows, raised her head, and looked at him coldly, “Mr. Qin, you have stated that more than three times and I have answered you more than three times. What more do you want?”

“What? I… I didn’t get an answer,” Qin Yue froze in shock in reply to Shi Nuan’s sudden cold and harsh stare.

“I did. I just thanked you for saving me. And I said that I got it. But you are still dwelling. Isn’t that obvious? You saved me and I expressed my gratitude. However, being grateful doesn’t mean that I need to like you. Mr. Qin, we were classmates, I don’t want to screw up our friendship.”

Qin Yue opened his mouth but could not find his tongue. Shortly after, he argued, “But you didn’t tell me that you don’t like me.”

Shi Nuan curled her lips, “That still doesn’t mean that I like you. I tried to reject you implicitly and politely and now it is my fault? You still demand for an answer. Actually, do you need my answer?

Or do you simply need the answer that you want to hear? If my answer is not the answer that you want, are you going to dwell on this forever?” Shi Nuan’s cold voice sounded extremely impatient, harsh, and aggressive.

She had always been tame and kind, but this was too much for her. “Since you demand for an answer, then here is my answer. Mr. Qin, I do not like you, not even the slightest bit. Are you satisfied now? Are we done?” Shi Nuan responded coldly and firmly.

The surroundings were very quiet, one could hear the light wind breezing through. It fluttered the strands of hair on Shi Nuan’s cheeks. Her eyes were frosty and harsh as if they were meant to pierce one’s heart and soul, causing frostbite on Qin Yue’s heart. “I have liked you for so many years, Shi Nuan.”

“That is none of my business. I have no control over that. It doesn’t mean that I have to be responsible for your feelings.”

“Shi Nuan, how did this happen? We have known each other for so many years. You have always known that I like you. You were not repulsive of me back in the days. I thought you will grow fond of me in time,” Qin Yue felt a pain growing deep down into his heart.

“Not every fondness brings mutual feelings from the other party. Qin Yue, I hope you can understand. Whether you like me or not, I have no control over it. But that doesn’t give you right to blame this on my conscious.”

“What about him? I have heard what your mom told you. She introduced him to you on a blind date. You could spend time with him. Why are you rejecting me?”

Qin Yue found Su Shaoqing very unpleasant to look at. He saw him as an eyesore especially since he was sitting at the main table tonight. Both of Shi Nuan’s grandpas sat at that main table, and Fu Chengyan too. Fu Chengyan was both the guest of honor and Shi Yunsheng’s friend. He had every reason to sit there. However, Shi Nuan invited Su Shaoqing to sit at that table too.

Although this man looked nice-looking and wealthy, Qin Yue had never heard of him. To him, Su Shaoqing was just like him.

Su Shaoqing quirked his eyebrows as he did not expect to be the target of envy as a bystander. He slightly lifted the corners of his eyebrows and showed his interest with a smile. Su Shaoqing looked stunningly handsome, sometimes he looked even more beautiful than a lady. Especially with his almond-shaped eyes, countless girls fell for him. In addition, he was always gentle, humble and courteous, which was why people would feel a relaxing spring breeze when he was around. Most people would probably be fooled by his appearance if they had not known him well enough.

Su Shaoqing kept quiet with his almond-shaped eyes fixated at Shi Nuan. His smile cued her of his wild intentions.

Shi Nuan pursed her lips, she knew that Su Shaoqing was bold, but she could not do anything about it. She gave Su Shaoqing a side-eyed look to warn him to stay put. However, these eye contacts between them appeared as flirts to Qin Yue. “Shi Nuan!”

Shi Nuan knitted her eyebrows, “What does it got to do with you? I decide who I want to spend my time with.”

“What about me?”

“You? I told you, you are my friend. Mr. Qin, I won’t be able to give you the answer that you want,” Shi Nuan rejected him in an ice cold tone.

“Shi Nuan, you don’t have to be my girlfriend for now. But at least give me a chance, please? We have known each other for years. I know you for who you are and you know about my conduct and characteristics too. On the contrary, this Mr. Su is new to you. You have only met him once. You don’t even understand him. Since you are willing to give him a chance, why not give me a chance too? I am not asking too much, but I am just begging for your benefit of doubt. Just once, that’s all I need. I believe you will fall in love with me!”

“That’s enough! This has nothing to do with time. It’s about what I want. I don’t want to spend time with you. I don’t want to give any chance to you. It doesn’t matter how long we have known each other. I don’t like you. I didn’t like you before, I don’t like you now and I will never ever like you in the future and forever and ever,” Shi Nuan really could not take it anymore.

“You…”

Qin Yue took a step backward, he never expected Shi Nuan to be so heartless to say this. In his impression, Shi Nuan was kind and generous instead of so rejective. “Are you doing this because of this man’s status? Or is it because he is richer than me?”

Shi Nuan felt a pinch on her head; she decided that she could not talk sense into Qin Yue. “Think whatever pleases you. You and I don’t stand a chance anyway. Mr. Qin, you have wasted enough of my time. I’ve said enough. This conversation ends now. Please don’t disturb me ever again.”

Shi Nuan opened the door, jumped into the car and shut the door swiftly.

Qin Yue stared gloomily at the car door that Shi Nuan shut and his fists were tightly clenched. He raised his head and saw Su Shaoqing, who was at ease and relaxed. Qin Yue perceived Su Shaoqing current presence as a mock to him, as if he was there to embarrass him.

Qin Yue glared at him fiercely, “Don’t get cocky because you are rich. Nuan is just confused for now. She will learn the truth about you. She will like me eventually.”

Su Shaoqing curled his lips and wrapped his arms around his chest. Truth be told, if it was not for Shi Nuan, he would not even set eyes on a man like him. How could he tolerate his yelling directed at him?

“Mr. Qin doesn’t seem to understand the situation. Shi Nuan doesn’t like you, with or without my presence,” he laughed coldly. Su Shaoqing’s sharp tongue was on par with Li Heng’s. “No matter what you do, it is impossible for Shi Nuan to like you, let alone for her to fall for you- not even the slightest chance,” he paused and stood up straight.

He gave Qin Yue the side-eye.

Su Shaoqing was tall and slender. When he stood up, the differences in their appearance were obvious. Su Shaoqing was far more superior. “Since you like Shi Nuan, you should know her well. Just now, you defamed the girl you like to turn the tide for your own interest. The way I see it, your feelings for her probably weren’t real. Men long for things they could never get, this is men’s vile nature. Some men could win the hearts of the women they like, some couldn’t. Mr. Qin belongs to the latter, which also happens to be the most incompetent kind,” Su Shaoqing curled his lips slightly as he placed one hand into his pocket.

Su Shaoqing walked past the front of the car and got into his seat, not giving Qin Yue the opportunity to speak at all. He simply stepped on the accelerator and sped off.

The supercar’s recoil made the dust dance in the air around Qin Yue. His expression looked dark and his fists were clenched hard. A few moments later, he released them. He stared powerlessly at the back of the car until it disappeared from his line of sight. He felt frustrated.

He had to admit that Su Shaoqing was telling the truth. But he could not accept it. He had liked Shi Nuan for so many years. He thought if he tried hard enough, Shi Nuan would notice his efforts eventually and accept him.

When Qin Yue learned that Shi Nuan was together with Fu Xicheng, he chose to let her go. After knowing Fu Xicheng turned his back on Shi Nuan and married Shi Wei instead, Qin Yue was furious at Fu Xicheng. He felt that Fu Xicheng had failed and betrayed Shi Nuan. At the same time, he was grateful that Shi Nuan was single now. That meant he had the opportunity to be with her.

But….

Shi Nuan, I like you and I believe that you will like me eventually.
