I Want a Lifetime with You Chapter 28

Truthfully, the noodles didn’t taste particularly great; they certainly weren’t up to the standards of a young master like Fu Chengyan, who would always dine at luxurious hotels.

But Shi Nuan was never picky with food, so she was fine as long as it could fill her tummy. Besides, she frequented this place mainly because of nostalgia.

It was almost time for classes to end, so Shi Nuan was worried that the area would get crowded. She quickly finished her bowl of noodles and suggested to leave. “It’s getting late!”

Just as Fu Chengyan nodded, he received a phone call from Zhou Zheng. “Ms. Shi’s gift is ready, sir!”

“OK. We’re at Jing University,” Fu Chengyan said while glancing at Shi Nuan. “Where are you headed after this, Ms. Shi?”

“I’ll be going home!” she replied. “It’s fine – I can wait for your assistant to come over. If you’re busy, you can go on ahead first, Mr. Fu!”

“No worries!” Fu Chengyan said as he got up to pay for the meal. Shi Nuan hurriedly followed behind, saying, “I told you it’s my treat, Mr. Fu. It’s not expensive or anything, but you should let me pay!”

“There’s no need. Chivalry would never allow women to pay for the meal.” Fu Chengyan stopped Shi Nuan and took out a red note from his wallet. He then walked outside after settling the bill.

Shi Nuan had no choice but to follow him. She couldn’t help but feel that she always lacked confidence whenever she was around Fu Chengyan. No matter what she said, he would never listen to her. But his actions did not offend her nor make her uneasy.

Since they had to wait for Zhou Zheng to come over, Fu Chengyan suggested they take a stroll around campus. It has been a long while since she last visited Jing University. Shi Nuan felt that the place had undergone quite some changes. She couldn’t help but wonder which batch of her grandfather’s students Fu Chengyan had been in.

“You don’t seem old, but I’m pretty much familiar with all of my grandfather’s students, and I’ve never met you. Which batch were you from?”

Shi Nuan walked behind Fu Chengyan in the sunset, stepping on his shadow.

Fu Chengyan paused for a moment. “You were probably still a child when I was studying here!”

“How can that be!?” Shi Nuan refused to believe him. “I’m 25 this year and you don’t look that much older than me. How could I have been a child?”

Fu Chengyan smiled. Turning to see a childish-looking Shi Nuan, he felt rather amused. “You can ask your grandfather if you don’t believe me. I studied two years of college when I was… Hmm… 15. You were only 7 or 8 at the time, so were you not still a kid?”

“H-how can that be!?” Shi Nuan gasped. “Then you must be a genius!”

“Genius?” Fu Chengyan’s eyes narrowed and darkened slightly. He now looked very different from his previous appearance. Shi Nuan really couldn’t tell just what kind of person Fu Chengyan was.

But as she gave it more thought, she remembered how her maternal grandfather and his colleagues used to talk about a genius who was supposed to be Jing University’s glory, but eventually left the country. I remember grandpa being upset about it for a long time – could it actually have been Fu Chengyan?

Seeing Fu Chengyan become less expressive, Shi Nuan could tell that this wasn’t a very good topic to talk about. Luckily, Zhou Zheng called right at this moment. Fu Chengyan put his phone away and said to Shi Nuan, “Let’s go. Zhou Zheng is waiting for us at the parking lot.”

The two walked, one behind the other. They weren’t too far apart, but not too close either. Zhou Zheng was already waiting outside when the pair arrived. Seeing them walk over, he handed the wrapped gift to Shi Nuan. “Here you go, Ms. Shi.”

“Thank you!” Shi Nuan nodded. “How much is it?”

She was flabbergasted when Zhou Zheng passed her the bill. “It’s this cheap!?” she asked, glancing at Zhou Zheng several times. “Was there some kind of mistake?”
