The next morning, Yang Chen boarded Lin Ruoxiâ€™s car and they both left
for Zhonghai International Airport.
Lin Ruoxiâ€™s Bentley was finally fixed. Her tyres had to be imported all
the way from England. It was unknown if the manufacturer kept no stock in
the country, or the carâ€™s design was too unique, which made Lin Ruoxi
have to impatiently wait.
She owned so many cars, which made Yang Chen wonder why she was unwilling
to drive any of them. The reason Lin Ruoxi gave, made Yang Chen feel
rather touched. She had developed a special connection to her car, and
was reluctant to make a switch.
How nice would it be if she could too, develop a liking towards me, Yang
When they arrived at the departure hall of the airport, Li Jingjing could
be seen standing there, silently waiting. She wore a pink sweater under a
white coat and held a small luggage bag in hand.
When she saw Yang Chen and Lin Ruoxi coming towards her, Li Jingjingâ€™s
eyes went slightly red and watery and revealed a smile on her face.
â€œSister Ruoxiâ€¦ Brother Yangâ€¦ youâ€¦ thank you for coming to send me
off.â€ After making the phone call yesterday, Li Jingjing wasnâ€™t very
confident that Lin Ruoxi would have come, considering what had happened
before. However, Lin Ruoxi had really kept her promise.
Yang Chen sighed as he patted Li Jingjingâ€™s head. He did not mind doing
such an act in front of Lin Ruoxi. It was merely an act affection a
brother would have done towards his sister. He knew that Lin Ruoxi would
â€œAfter you reach there, youâ€™ll be alone for quite a while. Donâ€™t
trust other people too much, especially men who seem to treat you
exceptionally well. Donâ€™t feel reluctant on spending money just because
the dollar is more expensive than the yuan. Spend on whatever you should,
or else your well-being would not be taken care off. Take care of
yourself. May you have a safe journey,â€ Lin Ruoxi said gently, as if
she was talking about something trivial.
Li Jingjing couldnâ€™t stop herself from tearing away. Other than
repeatedly nodding, she didnâ€™t seem to be able to speak.
Lin Ruoxi smiled faintly and said, â€œYou are one of my few friends here.
Iâ€™ll wait for your return and learn to cook from you again. Oh yeah,
after you come back in two years, thereâ€™ll be more adorable children at
Li Jingjing grinned while she sobbed and forcefully nodded her head.
â€œThank you guys. Brother Yang, Sister Ruoxi, goodbye.â€
Li Jingjing didnâ€™t say anything else. Turning around, she walked
towards the exit without turning her head to look back.
Lin Ruoxi was the first to turn and leave the airport.
Yang Chen quickly followed behind. Smiling, he said, â€œBabe Ruoxi, I
sense that you have a warm heart but a cold shell. Women like you are too
â€œStop spouting nonsense. Say this to other women.â€ Lin Ruoxi rolled
her eyes. Evidently, sweet talk had little to no effect towards a
rational woman like her.
Yang Chen chuckled. â€œThen weâ€™ll go to the karaoke place now. You
promised me yesterday that youâ€™d learn singing from me. Itâ€™s really a
crucial skill the rest of your life could use.â€
Lin Ruoxi stopped moving, while her face revealed bitterness. â€œCan I
â€œNo, you canâ€™t,â€ Yang Chen rejected. â€œYou canâ€™t break your
promise. Look at me, Iâ€™ve lived up to my promise to you.â€
Lin Ruoxi pouted and remained silent. She then quickly walked to the
After half an hour, they arrived at Yuanâ€™s Dream Karaoke where they
were yesterday. The manager, naturally, wouldnâ€™t have forgotten Lin
Ruoxi. Yang Chen didnâ€™t even have to take out his platinum member card,
but the manager offered a huge room to them for free.
Yang Chen realized that he was tricked by Yuan Ye! The platinum card was
a useless piece of decoration! They could enter for free based solely on
Lin Ruoxiâ€™s face!
Yang Chen felt that he had to take revenge on the kid. It was wrong to
play a trick on an elder brother like that.
However, his current priority was to teach Lin Ruoxi how to sing.
Yang Chen insisted on bringing Lin Ruoxi here, for another major
[TL note: Face: side; reputation; self-respect; prestige, honor; social
His wife could do everything well, but would instantly annihilate
everyoneâ€™s perception of her once she opened her mouth to sing.
Wouldnâ€™t this pull down his social standing as her husband?
It was the same principle when a woman hoped that her partner was
handsome and attractive, to make other women envious. A man would hope
that other men get jealous once his woman starts to singing. Although he
would be fine as long as Lin Ruoxi could avoid singing, Yang Chen felt
that he had an uneasy feeling his heart.
As a result, Yang Chen began teaching Lin Ruoxi seriously, starting from
the most basic vocalization to explain basic music theories.
Yang Chen merely had to simply flip a few books to memorize this
professional knowledge. It wasnâ€™t difficult for him at all.
Thus, various complex conversations could be heard coming from the
â€œUse your voice! Not your nose!â€
â€œHow is my nose making the sounds when it canâ€™t?â€
â€œDarkâ€¦ dark skiesâ€¦ dark skies atâ€¦â€
â€œStop, stop, stop! Stop!!! How did you manage to sing the first word
out of tune?! You could have just read it out loud and have gotten it
â€œDark skiesâ€¦ atâ€¦â€
â€œStop!!! Did you really read it aloud just because I said you could do
it nicely?! Sing it!â€
â€œThe first word is off again!!!â€
After some time, Yang Chen finally managed to get Lin Ruoxi right on the
first sentence. Although her singing was so slow that it was akin to
reading, it was at least sung at the right tone.
Yang Chen thought left and right for a solution. He finally recalled a
technique he read about in a book. He waved his hands up and down while
moving his legs from side to side, causing his entire body to start
moving rhythmically. As he nodded, he said, â€œCome, do this with me.â€
Lin Ruoxi pouted as he looked at Yang Chenâ€™s posture which was unlike a
bear. Shaking her head, she said, â€œNo, itâ€™s too ugly. What are you
doing? Didnâ€™t you say you wanted me to sing?â€
â€œThis is called a rhythm. Once your body starts following the rhythm,
youâ€™ll start to get a sense of rhythm when you sing. You have to look
for a rhythm now. Follow the music, and mimic my actions. One, two,
three, four, two, two, three, four, three, two, three, fourâ€¦ Just
follow what I do. One, two, one, twoâ€¦ Do it now!â€
Yang Chenâ€™s limbs swayed like a standing panda as he shouted at Lin
Lin Ruoxi got frightened by Yang Chenâ€™s yell. Yang Chen looked so
serious that he seemed to have started seeing her as his student.
Lin Ruoxi clenched her teeth as she gathered what remained of her
courage. Since there was no one looking at her in the room, she put down
her mic and stood up before swaying away together with Yang Chen like a
Thus, the couple kept singing as they swung their bodies, singing away in
Lin Ruoxi felt that the series of weird movements really managed to help
her get a feel of the music. Therefore, she slowly got immersed as she
After three songs had passed, when Lin Ruoxi and Yang Chen were
completely absorbed in their swaying and singing, as if they were people
diagnosed with epilepsy, the door got pushed open!
A server holding a tray, who was standing outside the door saw a guy and
a lady with swaying oddly, as if they were turtles.
They couldnâ€™t help it, since their movements switched to turtles.
Lin Ruoxi pounced onto Yang Chenâ€™s chest like a terrified rabbit. She
had the urge to bang her head against the wall to commit suicide! How am
I supposed to meet people in the future?!
The server noticed that he witnessed something he wasnâ€™t supposed to
see. Although he didnâ€™t have to be killed for knowing their secret, he
quickly put down the tray of fruits and escaped.
On the other hand, Yang Chen was elated and satisfied by the sudden
encounter. Lin Ruoxi herself jumped into his arms!
He hugged the fragrant and delicate jade. Since Lin Ruoxi moved for very
long earlier, she was sweating quite a bit, causing her to exude her
bodily scent, which made Yang Chen take a few deep breaths as he
appreciated the rich fragrance.
â€œHehe, I knew that singing like this will make you improve a lot
quicker,â€ Yang Chen said happily while he hugged Lin Ruoxiâ€™s elegant
Lin Ruoxi suddenly realized what she just did. Forcefully, she pushed
Yang Chen away as she panted. Blushing, she yelled, â€œItâ€™s all because
of you! I donâ€™t dare leave this room anymore!â€
â€œWhatâ€™s wrong about that? We even have a marriage certificate. No one
can stop us even if we get a room at a hotel,â€ Yang Chen said gloomily.
â€œIâ€™m not talking about that!â€ Lin Ruoxi almost cried. â€œThe server
will tell others about it for sure, and say that weâ€¦ we did â€¦ the
kind of weird movementsâ€¦â€
Yang Chen pouted. Is it really weird? Who cares? Itâ€™s effective!
Suddenly, Lin Ruoxiâ€™s phone which was on the table started to vibrate.
Lin Ruoxi stopped minding the awkwardness anymore. Taking her phone up,
she frowned before picking up the call.
â€œHi, Wu Yue, did anything happen?â€
Her secretary, Wu Yue, had suddenly called over during the holidays.
Lin Ruoxi listened quietly for a while. Slowly, the red on her face
started fading, while she turned strict and serious.
