Chapter 4 - Not Familiar

“I have a boyfriend again. Although it is still the original one, I just like him very much."


After Zhao Fanzhou came back, there were a lot of things that kept him busy: going through the formalities of re-entry and boarding, re-starting the work of the student union, making up for the lessons that had been dropped, and "Get familiar" with Zhou Xiao---- she did not expect to be a casual word to cause her so much trouble. Like now, she was waiting stupidly downstairs the administrative building, waiting for him to finish a stupid meeting. The past Zhou Xiao used to stick to him. As long as he was free, she would make use of every second and every inch, but it was also because he didn’t have much free time too. 

Now, he has even lesser time, but under the pretext of “familiarity”, she always has to accompany him everywhere, self-study, formalities, purchase of daily necessities, meetings. Others are okay, but she really can't stand the meeting, because other things are still with him, as for this, she is just loitering outside waiting for the meeting to end. She wants to go back to watch her Taiwan variety shows. Before clearly answering her phone, she repeatedly told herself not to agree to go to the meeting with him, but she didn't know why. When she hung up the phone, she had already started changing clothes and preparing to go with him.

Zhao Fanzhou came out after the meeting and watched her wait with her mouth pouted. He actually didn’t want her to wait. He doesn't know why. Because of her “unfamiliar” sentence, he was always uneasy and always wanted to know what she is doing at every moment. He wants to see her as soon as he turns around.


"Okay, let's go eat."


"Ok." She looked listless.


"What do you want to eat?"


"Anything." How serious she used to be about eating, but today she seems so casual about it.


During the meal, Zhou Xiao ate one bite at a time and poked the rice from time to time. In fact, she was quite depressed. She used to stick to him. She used to wait for him for a meeting. She often even waited for several hours, she would still endure
hardship gladly. But now she felt angry simply after waiting for more than half an hour.


Zhao Fanzhou bowed his head to eat, but the afterglow of his eyes aimed at her from time to time. Seeing her so absent-minded, he was also a bit powerless. Recently, it seems that there is no way to get the two people to get along well, or the sweetness and happiness of the past. What is the problem in the end?



The meal was silently finished. He sent her back to the dormitory. There are always a lot of couples bidding farewell downstairs, hugging, kissing each other, this seems to be the fixed pattern of couples----- each time they say goodbye it seems like life and death.


"I’m going up."


He looked at her deeply and nodded.


She fled upstairs as if she was escaping, she could not bear the atmosphere any longer. Obviously decided to forgive him, to be together. However, she just can't get through the hurdles in her heart. After half a year's indifference, how many people can bear it? And in the six months, she wasn’t there, there was a beautiful girl with him. Although she trusted him as a man, but ... how sad he must be when his grandma passed away, in such a moment of fragility, feelings are particularly easy to invade? Moreover, when he was most sad, she didn't spend time with him, or it was more of the fact that he didn't give her the opportunity to accompany him at all. This should be the thing that made her most angry, he gave the rights of his girlfriend to others.


Zhao Fanzhou stood downstairs for a while and then looked at the stairs. She went upstairs without looking back. It really doesn't look like her style. She used to ask him to go upstairs reluctantly.


"Go up," he said.


She didn't move, she has a face of grievance.


"What's wrong? Is there anything?" He used to be a wooden man before.


"No." She stood still with a face of grievance. He didn't know what was going on, so the two were there for five minutes, and she finally couldn't help it: "You won't hug someone ~~" It was the first time she used such a coquetry way of talking to him, he remembered that he still stared blankly for a while, before giving her a soft hug.


They had just only been dating for a while then. Zhao Fanzhou smiled bitterly at the thought. He remembered returning to the dormitory. He could still feel her body temperature for a long time.


     

Intense Love / Fall In Love with My Doctor 韫色过浓 – Chapter 7.1

Chapter 7.1 - Problem (1)

Su Jinbei only stayed in the hotel for one night, and the next day she asked her agent and assistant to go through the hospitalization procedure, she secretly lay back in the ward.

    "Big star, you are finally back, I miss you till death." Lin Qingwei exaggerated, "What do you keep running around like this, you might hurt your legs again."

    "There is suddenly something urgent." Su JinBei raised an eyebrow at him. "Didn't I come back? I'll definitely recover completely before I leave."

    "It's a must, eh, right. You didn't tell your family about your discharge yesterday? They came to see you for nothing."

    Su Jinbei coughed twice, "Oh, you saw, what did they say."

    "I didn't say anything, but Senior Brother talked with your family for a long time."

    "Dr Zhou?" Su Jinbei was surprised, "What did they say?"

    "Why would I know, they talk privately, your family is very enthusiastic about Dr Zhou, and then they happily left after talking to him, did you not meet with them after?"

    "Happily left?" Su Jinbei leaned on the pillow and tapped on the bedside table with one hand. "Where is Dr Zhou, I want to talk to him."

    "His surgery should have just ended."

    Su Jinbei nodded and said to the assistant who was packing her luggage, "Xiao Wai, help me push the wheelchair over."

    "Ok, Sister Beibei."

    Lin Qingwei, "You are going now?"

    "Yeah." Su Jinbei was helped by her assistant over to the wheelchair. "Xiaowei, why haven't you left, are you free?"

    "I didn't arrange anything to do today, let's go, I will push you to find him."

    Therefore, Su Jinbei pushed out the ward by Lin Qingwei.

    The Vip Ward area had relatively few people, and together with Su Jinbei's disguise, she did not attract attention.

    "Xiaowei, why do you called Dr. Zhou, "Senior Brother"?" Idle and bored, Su Jinbei talked about it.

    "Because my senior brother and I graduated from the same university, I am two years younger than him," Lin Qingwei said. "My senior brother was famous in school, so I recognized him as soon as I arrived at this hospital."

    "Famous?" Su Jinbei murmured, "Yes, is it impossible not be famous with looks like that."

    "That's not entirely because of his appearance and ability. His brother always placed first in school. Anyway, he was the apple of every teacher's eyes."

    "Ha, he looks capable, but his personality is just a bit weird."

    Lin Qingwei smiled, "This is true, Senior Brother does not like to talk, and his temperament is cold. I haven't seen him interested in anything not medical related. But it doesn't affect his popularity."

    "Yeah." Su Jinbei came in with interest. "A lot of people chase him?"

    "Of course…" Lin Qingwei suddenly gave a sudden smile on his face, "Hey, look, there one right now."

    Su Jinbei looked forward along Lin Qingwei's line of sight. Sure enough, a man and a woman stood facing the corner of the stairs.

    The women wore fashionable clothes, obviously not a hospital staff, probably patients or their families.

    At this moment, the woman looked at the male doctor who was clearly distracted and said timidly, "Dr. Zhou, can you give me your mobile phone number."

    Su Huangbei stretched her neck and wanted to hear how he would answer.

    Lin Qingwei looked at his brother indifferently, but shook his head sadly, "This isn't the first few …"

    Sure enough, Zhou Shiyun lived up to Lin Qingwei's expectations and looked at the girl alienatedly and uncertainly. "Your younger brother's injury is all right. If you still have problems, you can contact the hospital."

    "Then, can't I contact you directly."

    Zhou Shiyun paused, "It should not be necessary."

    The woman bit her lip and opened up, "Dr Zhou, actually, I actually want your phone number not because of my brother, but because of, because of myself."

    Zhou Shiyun was silent for a moment, "Are you sick?"

    "… not ill."

    "Then why do you need my number?"

   The woman stiffen.

    Not far away, Su Jinbe tried to control herself from laughing out loud. This man is so disinterested and tactless, the only reason why a woman asks you for a number is because she is sick?

    The woman spoke again, this time she said in a huff, "Dr Zhou, I like you, I really like you, so I want your number, I hope we can contact more in the future."

    Lin Qingwei wow, she is quite brave, I don't know what excuse brothers will use to shut her mouth this time.

    The next second, Lin Qingwei heard Zhou Shiyun said lightly, "Oh, unfortunately, I can't contact you more."

    "Why."

    "Because I am engaged."


Unrequited Love 暗恋橘生淮南 Chapter 1

Chapter 1 - The Demon in her Heart

Lou Zhi sat at her desk staring at the new blank diary in front of her.

She did not know how many times she picked up the pen, and then put it down again. Finally, she decided to put on the date first. It had been a long time she did not write.

Just now, her roommate, Jiang Bai Li, was on the phone, then rushed out the door and left the instant noodle bucket she had eaten on the table. The smell lingered in the dormitory for a long time.

Luo Zhi dumbly stared at the dairy, and the odor of the instant noodle became more pungent.

In this morning, Jiang Bai Li sat in her bed and drew the tarot card, as a monthly routine, to predict her love fortune. Without a reason, she pushed Lou Zhi to draw one. Luo Zhi can’t stand her annoying, so she drew the card and gave it back to her without even looking at the card; low head continued to read the Dongye Guiwu detective novel.

After a while, Luo Zhi suddenly heard screaming from somewhere near the bed. "Why won’t you listen to me?”, I said, "Be patient, be patient! Patience is the making of wise counsel!"

Luo Zhi raised her head, looked at her languidly and said, “I’ve been forced to transform into a super patient lady since I lived in a dormitory with you."

Jiang Bai Li had been studying the tarot card since high school, but her mastery of fate did not seem to change her chaotic life state. She also agreed on this.

"Because you're just waiting for God to save you and forget to change yourself." Luo Zhi thought silently in her mind.

Luo Zhi didn’t believe in fate. She was afraid that she would believe in the fate and forget about man-made misfortunes. Man-made misfortunes are hateful and confrontational. What can a man hope when he has believed in fate?

However, there was Bai Li said was not all wrong: “Wise decision needs patience ,and patience is indeed necessary."

In fact, no one knew this better than Luo Zhi.

She looked up at her watch. It had passed half an hour, and she was still fantasizing .The white paper before her eyes was more dazzling without anything on it.

Suddenly she stood up and the legs of the chair made a shrill wail on the concrete floor. Luo Zhi took Bai Li's bowl carefully, preventing the soup from spilling out, and slowly walked to the toilet to empty it.

Then she went to the room, opened the windows and doors and refreshed the room. Then took a deep breath and turned on the lamp again. She finally grabbed the pen and wrote,

"15th September, Sunny.

I met him. But very far. First sight was his back. Followed by it was a large persimmon that descended from the sky."

Two hours ago, she was walking in the school.

In early autumn, Beijing had the best weather of the year, with the hazy sunshine through the red and gold autumn leaves.

She bowed her head as she had done when she was a child, at every step, trying to tread on the cross-mark in the center of the tiles.

When she was a child, her family had a hard time. In order to make both ends meet, her mother worked as a deliverer in the wholesale furniture market. She’d always followed her mother. But unfortunately, she got to struggle in the back, and her feet ached with a strain.

Her mother looked back at her, her eyes red and aching, but her mouth said, "You try to step on the little cross that is in the middle of the tile at every step of the way."

She tried to follow the rule like a game, forgetting the burning sun above her head, the aching of her feet and the long summer journey really came to an end unconsciously.

Gradually, it became a habit in her life.

At a sudden, the wind blew and she stopped subconsciously and looked up.

Two or three meters ahead, at the fork in the road, a man came round, walking right in front of her.

Even when everything had changed, it was still the back that she could never mistake in her life: a few restless strands of hair stood on the back of his head, good posture, stand straight but not pretentious.

When she felt in a daze, a large persimmon suddenly fell for top 。Just a meter away, she was almost caught . If she hadn’t stopped right now, it would have been right in her head. But Luo Zhi still got splashed by the juice - very badly, no matter be persimmon or her.

He heard it and turned back. At the next moment, Luo Zhi also turned hastily and ran away before his gaze shifted to her.

Even as running, she was wondering whether he would laugh at her or not because of her strange acts.

She kept running, steps by steps up the stairs, pushed open the door of the dormitory, and finally remembered to gasp for breath.

As soon as she calmed down, she changed her coat and trousers. Opening the closet, all were cold-hue clothes

For her, color things were just incongruous.

In no time, she cast her mind back to the day before the college entrance examination. After submitting medical check to her teacher, she carried her schoolbag, walked along the longest shopping street in the city, and was reluctant to go home. Along the street, there were a huge number of fashion shops. At that moment, one thing caught into her eyes. It was a braces-skirt with bright yellow color.

That day she was also in a bad mood. In her schoolbag was a large copy of the old question and exercise paper. It represented a challenge invited from the National College Entrance Examination. She was not afraid of the exam, nor was she looking forward and excited about the release from the high school student life. Luo Zhi was perplexed, step by step go on, after all, was she closer to happiness or farther.

The inexplicable anxiety in her heart could not be extinguished, and she was as usual urging herself to be patient and content, but it did not work.

She lingered for a long time, then rushed into the shop, and said vaguely to the listless shopkeeper, to try on the skirt . She looked her up and down and got up impatiently.

In the small fitting room, she tried it on with a bit expectation to be looked great. As soon as she opened the door, contract to expectation, she saw a dull, pale-faced girl in the dressing-glass opposite, looking closer, she then saw a timid village girl , with a ten-year-unchanged ponytail against the beauty of this bright yellow thing.

She was overwhelmed with embarrassment, but miraculously calmed her down and said, “You should know who you are, what you should do, and what you should fit into."

She put up with the long face of the shop assistant and returned her skirt back. Then took the bus home, sat down at her desk and opened the book and went on with her revision. No one could believe that she would mock herself with a bright yellow dress; a teenage girl who had decided to practice again so hard because of this little yellow dress.

She lay against the pillows with persimmon juice stain, was too panicked, just as suddenly as she had that day.

She had been too quickly to avoid him, but now she could recall the moment clearly just a second before she ran; his eyes were moving from the persimmon to her ankles. At that time, the boy was with a half-smile and a white neck connected to the lower jaw, too beautiful shape.

Though she thought she felt panicky. How did she see all of this?

Even if she did, why can't she write it down on her diary?

In high school, Luo Zhi did write a very thick diary, the diary had only one content and the words only described a person. Somehow she lost it on the day of graduation.

She didn't write too long, long enough to forget how to write again, long enough to forget how to describe the beautiful jawline and the smiley surprise that he left in her mind.

She turned her head and fixed her eyes on the mirror, lean back a little, and she saw herself in the mirror: slightly pale skin, sharp jaws, bright eyes that can't bury the beauty of her smile.

It had been so long, so long that she didn't even realize she had not that village girl anymore. Every girl who's buried in high school goes through a change in appearance when she goes to college. Because she seldom kept in touch with her old classmates, she didn’t have to go through the usual pleasantries of the class meeting and heard, "Oh! You've become so pretty." So, she was almost imperceptible about her change.

Her heart was beating too fast; that feeling returned back to her again.

“Now I’m not a village girl anymore, am I?” She thought.

“So some stories, should be the turning point?”

After all, it’s no longer the age where she can subdue demon with a bright yellow dress.

Intense Love / Fall In Love with My Doctor 韫色过浓 – Chapter 6.2

Intense love

(Credit MGTV)

    

Chapter 6.2 - Discharged (2)

  "Mom, I told you that Jinbei is fine. You didn't have to rush over like this." Su Yundong rolled his eyes. "Now rest assured, can we go back."

    "Nurse, wasn't it serious when she was sent in? How long will it take to recover, will there be any after-effects?" Zhao Xueyan asked, not assured.

    The little nurse was a little embarrassed, how would she know. At this moment, she saw that the doctor in charge of Su Jinbei came out of a patient's ward. As if seeing a saviour, she quickly said, "Dr. Zhou, there are family members of a patient here!"

    Not far away, Zhou Shiyun heard the sound and pass the medical kit to Lin Qingwei beside, and raised his foot to walk towards them.

    Mr.Zhou? Zhao Xueyan turned to look.

The man who walked over was wearing a doctor coat, his face were cold and delicate, and his temperaments were proud and outstanding. Zhao Xueyan was a little more sure.

    Mrs. Huo's second grandson never attended the occasion held by the family, so almost no one knew what he looked like. But she has seen the photos given by Mrs. Huo. Although the photos are of a child aged twelve or thirteen, she can see that he is certainly not ordinary when he grows up.

    Now seeing this person, Zhao Xueyan feels that this face is a bit similar to the twelve-year-old face in the photo.


    She greeted him with a look of joy, "Shi Yun, it turns out that you are the doctor in charge of JinBei, very good, very good."

    Zhao Xueyan's behavior, and familiar tone, not only stunned the surrounding nurses, but frightened Lin Qingwei as well, and even Zhou Shiyun, who had always been calm, did not react.

    "You……"

    "Shi Yun, I'm relieved if you are here, that brat Bei Bei will not mess around anymore." Zhao Xueyan looked adoringly. "You tell your auntie, is JinBei is really all right?"

    Zhou Shiyun narrowed his eyes slightly, and looked at the unfamilar woman in front of him, spitting Jinbei's name every now and then, and what her attitude towards him was obviously showed that she knows his relationship with Su Jinbei.

    Zhou Shiyun calmed down. This person is either Su Huangbei's mother or relatives of Su Jinbei.

    "Madam, let's speak elsewhere."

    Zhao Xueyan looked at the lively crowd next to him and nodded, "OK, Yundong, you come too."

    …

    Lin Qing saw the three leaving, he was puzzled. He walked to the nurse's station and said, "Who's that?"

    Little nurse, "Miss Su's family."

    "Su Jinbei's family." Lin Qing's made a strange expression. "Then why do they seem so familiar with Senior Brother?"

    The little nurse tilted her head and thought for a while, "Is it possible that Miss Su mentioned that she was Dr. Zhou's doctor, so the family wanted to express gratitude."

    Lin Qingwei touched the back of his head, "Is it so?"

    After more than ten minutes, Zhao Xueyan and Su Yundong walked out of the reception room next to them.

    "Shi Yun, since you said she was okay, then I'm relieved, now that you two have met, then I will hand my JInBei to you, I won't care about her anymore." Zhao Xueyan said with a smirk.

    In her mind, she have determined that Su Jinbei and Zhou Shiyun are already together.

    Zhou Shiyun smiled politely, and did not refute her, only saying, "Have a safe trip back."

    "Ok."

    Su Yundong looked at Zhou Shiyun suspiciously, "Hey, my sister didn't want to see you before, now she likes you?"

    Zhao Xueyan glared at Su Yundong, "What do you not want to see, watch your words."

    Su Yundong snorted coldly, "Also, my sister is superficial beyond belief. It's not surprising she likes you, but just don't know how long it would last this time."

    "Su Yundong!"

    Su Yundong didn't care about the eyes of his mother's eyes, but he smile in contempt and turned away.

    Zhao Xueyan adjusted her expression and looked at Zhou Shiyun lovingly. "Don't listen to Yun Dong's nonsense, then auntie will leave first."

    Zhou Shiyun nodded.

    Zhao Xueyan followed in Su Yundong's direction. Lin Qingwei saw from afar and quickly came up to him, "Brother, what is going on?"

    "There is nothing going on." Zhou Shiyun said and closed the door.

    "Hey Senior Brother!" Lin Qingwei was miserably left outside the door. He looked at the closed office door, and his face was depressed, was there really nothing going! But the Su family was way too warm with his brother.

    When Zhou Shiyun returned to the office, he changed his original robe and put on his clothes. Actually, he didn't say anything in the office just now. He just explained the situation of Su Jinbei honestly, just like what he would say to any patient's family.

    As for why he didn’t tell Zhao Xueyan that Su Jinbei didn’t know who he was, it was only because he was lazy … He don’t think much about any kind of thing that had no relations to the medical field, much less talk about it.

    On the other side, Su Jinbei was uncomfortablely eating a fruit salad in the hotel room.

    "Eh Hedi, haven't my mom called me?"

    He Di came in from the door, "She just called, I answered …"

    "What! You answered, didn't I tell you not to answer it!"

    "Don't worry, your mother didn't say anything."

    Su Jinbei froze for a while, "She didn't say anything? Are you sure?"

    "I also feel weird. She told you not to run away and go back to the hospital to recuperate. She won't bother you."

    A piece of kiwi fruit stuck in her throat, "Cough, is this really true?"

    "Really, your mother and your brother have gone back."

    Su JinBei raised her eyebrows, "Such good luck, it seems that the company has something to do, or it's something at home. My mother can't be bothered with me anymore."

    He Di, "It doesn't matter, JinBei, then you see if you want to go back to the hospital or stay in the hotel."

    Su Jinbei supported her chin, remembering the unsmiling Dr. Zhou, "How boring it is to stay in the hotel, of course I have to go back, there have Xiao Wei to play with me."
