It Doesn’t Matter, I Like Darkness
Instead of continuing the topic, the two talked about something else.
It was very comfortable to chat with Fu Mo. He had a wide range of knowledge and can speak freely no matter what the topic was about.
“I’ve always felt like I’ve seen you somewhere?” Nan Xun couldn’t help but take the initiative to ask.
Fu Mo looked at her with his pair of deep eyes, his eyes became bright and clear under the streetlamp. “I also have that feeling. I think I’ve known you for a long time.”
If it wasn’t for the expressionless face of the speaker, Nan Xun almost thought that the other side was flirting with her or using very old-fashioned pick-up lines.
Nan Xun looked at his side profile and thought that this man was very handsome, that is, his skin was pale, and he looked sickly.
“Ah!” Nan Xun suddenly called out and pointed at him and said, “I know who you are!”
When Fu Mo heard this, his eyes narrowed slightly, and something seemed to be brewing from the depths of his eyes.
“Oh? Then tell me who am I?” He replied.
Nan Xun said, “Do you recognize me? Last time, I sat next to you on the bus, then you took me home.”
Fu Mo looked at her, and the corner of his mouth was slightly hooked up. He smiled silently, “Yes, that was me.”
The two chatted for a while and finally arrived in front of the building that was on the last corner.
The streetlight in front of the building seemed to be broken, and the whole building was trapped in the dark night.
Nan Xun regretted that when she left, she shouldn’t have turned off the light to save electricity, it made the whole building dark and gave it a sinister feeling.
Nan Xun promptly dashed upstairs and howled. She rustled to the sixth floor and at each level she turned on the stairway induction light.
Just after she finished howling, Nan Xun didn’t mean to cough twice. She rushed to the person besides her and explained: “The light is too old, and you can’t see while you walk. At this time, you can only howl.”
The smile in Fu Mo’s eyes didn’t scattered. “It doesn’t matter. I like the darkness. I can go upstairs without the lights.”
The two went upstairs and Nan Xun hurriedly took him to see another room. “This room is bigger than mine, but the lighting isn’t as good as mine. If you like it, I can change it for you.”
Fu Mo shook his head and replied: “No, I like this room very much. I don’t like the strong sunlight.”
Nan Xun listened to him and knew that he was ready to move in, but she thought that the other party had only came to see the house tonight and would move in tomorrow. Afterall, he didn’t bring anything, but she didn’t expect that Fu Mo would sit down on the sofa of the living room.
“You’re staying here tonight?” Nan Xun was a little surprised, “But it didn’t seem that you have brought anything with you.”
Fu Mo looked at her, but there was a bit of banter in his eyes, “Is it not ready for me to live in?”
Nan Xun’s advertisement on the internet indeed said they can move-in at any time, but it’s also good to move in with a bag instead of being empty handed, right?
Nan Xun said, “Then, you can live here. By the way, have you had dinner? Do you want me to cook you a bowl of egg noodles?”
In fact, the general way of asking this was to ask casually, so when she saw Fu Mo nod, Nan Xun had the feeling that she couldn’t laugh or cry.
She didn’t expect that Fu Mo would be such an unkind person.
However, she likes straight-forward people.
In the kitchen, came the sound of cooking. Nan Xun fried an egg, then cut some carrots and chopped scallions and sprinkled it in. Finally, the delicious noodles were cooked.
Nan Xun directly brought it to the coffee table in the living room, with a special service attitude. Ok, she had prepared to give Fu Mo her chopsticks.
Suddenly she thought of something, Nan Xun quickly asked, “This bowl and chopsticks are what I use. Won’t you dislike it?”
Fu Mo replied, “If it’s you, I don’t mind.”
After receiving the egg noodles and chopsticks, he ate slowly.
Nan Xun was confused by his words. Would he have mind if it was someone else?
How did this sound like love talk?
Nan Xun stared at him for a while. He ate very well, but the carrots in the bowl were pushed aside by him. It seemed that he didn’t like it. Nan Xun also noticed that every time he ate, he would put the chopsticks in his mouth to suck on.
The thin lips at the end of the chopsticks, gently sip, as if to taste its flavor in addition to the other flavors such as the egg noodles. He seemed to have tasted it for a long time.
Somehow, Nan Xun’s face turned red.
The bowl of noodles soon revealed the bottom. Fu Mo looked up at her and smiled with satisfaction.
“Thank you for your noodles. It’s delicious. I’ll cook for you tomorrow.” Fu Mo said.
Nan Xun hurriedly replied, “Don’t be so polite, it’s just a bowl of noodles.”
Nan Xun didn’t take Fu Mo’s words seriously.
However, the next day, Nan Xun got up late and heard the sound of vegetables being chopped in the kitchen.
Nan Xun peeked her head in the kitchen and saw a tall handsome man cutting vegetables.
He was very serious while cutting vegetables, with his head slightly drooped, his white shirt rolled up and it revealed his white arm.
Nan Xun inexplicably felt that this scene was familiar as if she seen it somewhere.
When the man heard the sound, he looked back at her. He had a handsome face, a high nose, sword-like eyebrows, dark and narrow eyes. After seeing her, his eyes, which had no fluctuations at all, revealed a small smile which made him look a bit angry.
“Awake? You go to the living room to watch TV and I’ll be done soon.” Fu Mo said.
Nan Xun stared, “Fu Mo, do you really want to cook for me? In that case, I’m so sorry, ah.”
Little eight at this time immediately interject with a sentence, “Do you still have time to be embarrassed?”
Nan Xun ignored it.
Fu Mo said, “It doesn’t matter. If it’s for one person or for two. Besides, the ingredients that I used were all taken from the refrigerator. Do you mind if I make rice?”
Obviously, it was clear that Nan Xun took advantage of this, but when the other party said that, it seemed as if he took advantage of her. How can such a small amount of money be worth the hard work of cooking a meal?
Nan Xun saw that he was already half busy, so she wasn’t polite and had the cheek to eat.
“Fu Mo, can I help you?”
Nan Xun rolled up her sleeves and was about to enter.
“I don’t need your help. Go to the living room and watch TV. There should be a lot of Taiwanese dramas that are popular recently.” Fu Mo stood at the door and looked at her with a smile.
Somehow, Nan Xun felt that this kind of Fu Mo…. was magnificent!
“Then, I’ll go…?”
Fu Mo nodded slightly, and his voice was cold at this moment, which actually made people feel warm. “Go ahead, when you finish watching, the meal will be ready.”
Nan Xun drifted away precariously, she felt very strange. She knew the man in front of her for only one night. Oh, plus the last time when he sent her home, that was only two times, but she thought they seemed to know each other longer.
TL Note: She is so cheap she just said it as a courtesy, but he actually agreed (since she’s so poor). Anyways, since she recognizes him as the bus guy, he was rude before to and accepted. Haha too bad she’s kinda dumb.
