My Little Happiness 我的小确幸 Chapter 7.1


Chapter 7.1 - How can I survive? (1)

Wen Shaoqing didn't see Cong Rong again for several days. When he was off work, he specially bought a piece of tofu and knocked on the door from the opposite unit. He waited but there was no sound behind it.

Wen Shaoqing has been running to the stomatology department recently, and the students under him were discussing it together.

"Teacher Wen went to the stomatology again?"

“Yes."

"How come he has been running to the dentist so often lately?"

"Toothache?"

"I haven't heard of it. Yesterday I saw him eating lunch in the operating room, his teeth seem fine."

"Is he going to be swapped to the stomatology department?"

"No? I haven't graduated yet!"

"I just saw him talking to He Shuai (Shuai: handsome guy. Referring to He Wenjing)."

Zhong Zhen listened, he suddenly thought. Prof Wen said that he had a person he liked. Would it be Dr. He? ! Last time, Mr. Wen said that Dr. He was his Shi Mei (female junior). Didn’t Shi Xiong(male senior) and Shi Xiong(female junior) always have something between them? 

Wen Shaoqing stopped by He Wenjing's treatment room. She sent off the last patient, took off her mask and asked, "Shi Xiong, do you have a toothache?"

"No."

"Then why do I always see you here?"

"Have you ever met a patient called Cong Rong?"

"Yes, I just extracted her wisdom teeth yesterday afternoon and she will come back for a consultation next week."

"Your patient? And the surgery is done?"

"Yes, is there any problem?"

Wen Shaoqing shook his head, "Nothing, I'm going first."

He Ge (Ge: brother in chinese. He Wenjing liked people to address her as brother he, He Ge) looked at Wen Shaoqing and whispered strangely: "Isn’t Cong Rong the cousin of your own student that you introduced? Why don't you seem to not know that she is my patient?"

Cong Rong has finally removed the disaster and drank a few days of porridge. Every time she drank porridge, she would remember the egg custard made by Wen Shaoqing. Looking at the white porridge in front of her, she felt a mix of feelings. Fortunately, the swollen half of her face finally diminished, but she still insisted on staying at Zhong Zhen's house.

Cong Rong thought that she and Wen Shaoqing are just neighbors. Now that she lives in Zhong Zhen’s place, they are no longer neighbors aren't they? But she did not expect that she and Wen Shaoqing had more than "fate", so much more that it caught her off guard.

After renting the house, Zhong Zhen planned to invite friends to come for house warming. He was too busy upon the first few weeks of moving in. Finally, he found a day when he had less lessons and Wen Shaoqing was free as well.

At noon, Wen Shaoqing and a group of students arrived, and Zhong Zhen smiled and opened the door to let them in.

Someone looked at the high-heeled shoes at the door and laughed at Zhong Zhen.

"No, no! I don't have a girlfriend." Zhong Zhen pointed to the closed bedroom door. "My cousin, she was preparing her documents for several days. She came back from the court today and was sleeping. Quiet. If we wake her up, she will explode!"

Wen Shaoqing is not new to Zhong Zhen’s "cousin" from Zhong Zhen’s matchmaking lines, he smiled and said: "Okay."

Zhong Zhen smiled happily, "Prof Wen, please take a seat, I will get you water." After that, he turned and entered the kitchen. In his mind, he was thinking, today is the chance to finally let his cousin and the boss meet! After the boss met his cousin, he certainly would like her cousin more than Dr. He!

The group of students at Zhong Zhen’s house are all graduate students brought by Wen Shaoqing. They are Zhong Zhen’s friends as well and begged Zhong Zhen to show them around.

This house was rented to Zhong Zhen by Wen Shaoqing. Naturally, he didn't need to be shown around, so he sat down on the sofa, and only then did he hear a low voice coming from the bedroom: "Zhong Zhen, pour me a glass of water."

Wen Shaoqing glanced at the bedroom, hesitated a moment, and consciously went to the kitchen to pour water. When he pushed the door in, he saw the person on the bed struggling to sit up, pulling her hair blankly, and finally fell down and continued to sleep.

Wen Shaoqing handed over the glass, "Here."

Cong Rong struggled to get up again, and her eyes were too lazy to open. When she raised her hand to touch get the glass, she also touched Wen Shaoqing's hand, but she didn't know that it was him. After drinking a glass of water and closing her eyes to grab his hand, she sat up, rubbed the man’s head, and said lazily: "Your cousin has been too busy lately, I wasn’t able to take care of you. I will take you out to eat delicious food soon."

Although Wen Shaoqing was confused, he moved very fast. Before Wen Shaoqing responded, she put the cup back into his hand and lied down to continued to sleep.

Zhong Zhen came when he heard the sound from the bedroom, and a group of people stood in the doorway and watched in shock. Wen Shaoqing walked out calmly, Zhong Zhen walked up to him, frightened, "Prof Wen, I'm sorry, my cousin... she didn't do it on purpose..."

Wen Shaoqing looked a little strange, and he absently responded: "Well, it's okay..."
A group of people looked at Wen Shaoqing's uncertain face, and looked at Zhong Zhen sympathetically. If the boss says it’s okay, it’s actually a big deal!

Zhong Zhen stood in front of Wen Shaoqing and wanted to explain.

Wen Shaoqing suddenly looked at him and asked, "She is your cousin? Is she the cousin you want to introduce to me?"

Zhong Zhen nodded, "Yeah, do you know her?"

Wen Shaoqing didn't answer and turned to the kitchen.

The sympathy on everyone's face was immediately replaced by contempt: Zhong Zhen, you are so shameless! How can you bribe the professor in this way!

"Right," Wen Shaoqing went back and added after taking a few steps. "Remember to say the name first when you do matchmaking."

"Oh." Zhong Zhen was inexplicable. "My cousin is Cong Rong."

Wen Shaoqing gave him a deep look and turned into the kitchen.

Zhong Zhen rushed into the bedroom in a second and vigorously shook Cong Rong, anxiously, "Cousin! Why did you pat my boss' head?"

Cong Rong woke up and pushed away irritably and continued to sleep. She asked sleepily, “who is your boss?"

Standing in the kitchen, Wen Shaoqing poured out a glass of water with the cup that Cong Rong had just used. He took a few sips before recovering, and then lowered his head and laughed silently.

It turned out that she was the cousin Zhong Zhen wanted to introduce him to.

With this, Wen Shaoqing had a strange smile on his face, and no one dared to stay in the house with him anymore. As soon as Zhong Zhen said that he was going out to buy some groceries, the group of students immediately went along with him and left Wen Shaoqing cooking in the kitchen.

Cong Rong woke up to the smell of the food. When he came out of the bedroom and saw someone in the kitchen, he thought it was Zhong Zhen. Without thinking, she opened the door and asked, "what are we having for lunch?"

After taking another glimpse of the man clearly, she was blinded. Why did she go back to the day when she first saw Wen Shaoqing?

In the same house, the same kitchen, even Wen Shaoqing's arm length when he rolled up his sleeves is the same. Is she having hallucinations again?

Wen Shaoqing looked at Cong Rong’s confused and silly expression, and coughed and called out, "Cong Rong?"
