Close To You Chapter 26

When Luo Lin Yuan came home in the evening, he unexpectedly found that Luo Ting was also at home. Luo Ting was sitting on the sofa, unfolding the newspaper, and was reading it. When he heard the movement of his return, he put down the newspaper and said, “You’re back.”

Because Luo Lin Yuan told Uncle Wu that he was coming back tonight, Luo Ting waited for him for dinner.

Of course, Luo Lin Yuan was surprised and all his bad moods waved away, and he was in a bright spring mood.

At the dinner table, Luo Ting gave him some dishes and asked him about things at school. Although Luo Ting was busy, every time the father and son got together, it was always very warm. Luo Ting would care about Luo Lin Yuan’s life.

For Luo Lin Yuan, concern is always better than the money on card. It’s warm and alive, letting him know that Luo Ting was thinking of him in his heart.

The topic gradually ran farther and farther away. Luo Ting asked about Yu Han, whom he met at the school gate. Hearing Yu Han’s name from his father’s mouth, Luo Lin Yuan’s enthusiasm ran out. He poked the rice in the bowl with his chopsticks somewhat sullen.

Luo Ting saw it and joked, “Did you have a fight with your classmate?”

Luo Lin Yuan shook his head to deny it. “No, there was no fight, he even took me to see his grandmother today.”

Luo Ting put down his chopsticks with interest when he heard the words. “You guys are so close?”

Luo Lin Yuan picked out the story between him and Yu Han, including the news that Yu Han’s family only has one grandmother, who is still in the hospital.

Luo Ting had been listening seriously, too seriously; he hadn’t spoken and his brows furrowed.

Luo Lin Yuan noticed it and said with some unease, “What’s wrong, Dad?”

Only then did Luo Ting reveal a light smile, “Nothing, I just didn’t expect your classmate’s life to be so difficult, it’s not very easy.”

Luo Lin Yuan lowered his head. “Yes, it’s very hard.”

After the meal, Luo Ting went back to the study to deal with business matters. Luo Lin Yuan went into the kitchen and asked the cook to teach him how to make a cup of coffee.

Luo Lin Yuan, who lived a pampered life, even made a cup of coffee and was quite clumsy and almost burned himself.

After finally making it with great difficulty, Luo Lin Yuan carried the coffee to the door of the study; but through the half-hidden door, he heard Luo Ting’s suppressed anger. He was shouting at Lin Shu’s name on the phone with her first and last name. It was his own wife, Luo Lin Yuan’s biological mother.

The two of them were quarreling. Luo Lin Yuan, who realized this, didn’t dare to knock on the door, but stood at the back of it, and even paid careful attention so that his shadow wouldn’t appear in the light coming out through the door.

Even if Luo Ting was angry, his speech wasn’t still very rapid. He always organizes his language before he speaks, sounding very reasonable. But no matter how reasonable it is, when quarreling with Lin Shu, these reasons are useless.

Luo Ting finally said in a deep voice, “Don’t forget that you’re still a mother.”

Luo Ting was on speaker, Luo Lin Yuan clearly heard Lin Shu’s impatient and indifferent voice, “I have my own life. You think I should stay at home after giving birth. Don’t be ridiculous.”

Luo Ting: “I’m not asking you to stay at home, but can you treat Xiao Yuan better? It will be his birthday in a few days!”

Lin Shu: “Don’t be hypocritical, Luo Ting. Why don’t you accompany him on his birthday? Must you force me?! When you coaxed me to give birth, apart from pretending in front of him, have you done your fatherly duties! Do you need me to talk to you about those dirty stinks you’ve been playing outside?”

Luo Ting: “What dirty stinks!”

Lin Shu: “You know it in your heart!” After Lin Shu hung up the phone, Luo Lin Yuan heard the sound of smashing things from the study.

He slowly backed away, left the study quietly, brought the coffee to his room, and drank it all in one go.

They all said that coffee was refreshing, but Luo Lin Yuan still felt tired and panicked. After he took a shower, he climbed up the bed discontentedly and wrapped himself tightly with the quilt.

He felt as if he had fallen into an ice-cold desert bed, sinking all the way down, and the sand gradually filled up all his breathing space, leaving him breathless.

For a long time, Luo Lin Yuan didn’t even know if he fell asleep; his spirit was exhilarated, but his body was exhausted.

He touched his phone next to the bed and opened a mini-game to pass the time.

Suddenly, a WeChat message lit up on his phone, it was from Yu Han.

Yu Han: “Today, you’ve spent money. Grandma asked me to bring you some small dishes from home, as well as the sausages she hung out to dry before.”

Luo Lin Yuan stared at the WeChat and didn’t reply for a long time.

Yu Han probably saw that he didn’t reply, so he came with another one: “Is it inconvenient to receive it? I can understand.”

Luo Lin Yuan then edited the previous WeChat: “Bring it to school to give me?”

Yu Han: “Give it to you after class ba.”

Yu Han: “Don’t worry, the food tastes good and clean.

Luo Lin Yuan: “Did I say anything?”

Yu Han didn’t reply.

Luo Lin Yuan didn’t know why, probably because he was now vulnerable and aggrieved, those bad moods engrossed in his mind, he actually said to Yu Han: “My birthday will be in a few days, do you plan to give me anything?”

When this question was sent, Luo Lin Yuan couldn’t wait to swallow his phone into his stomach and destroy the body.[1]or evidence Yu Han had drawn the line before the two of them several times, and Luo Lin Yuan wasn’t so stupid that he couldn’t even see this.

The reason for letting him see his grandmother was simply because he accompanied Yu Han to the hospital that day and also Ren Yu ran into him there, Yu Han took him to see his grandmother.

If he really wants to say the relationship between them, the truth is, they are still spinning around in place without any progress.

How could he have the nerve to ask people for gifts now? His face is too thick.

Luo Lin Yuan’s cheeks were burning and he wanted to withdraw the WeChat, which he did.

Yu Han, however, had already seen it and replied: “Coming of age birthday?”

Yu Han: “What are you withdrawing for?”

Yu Han: “Wrong send?”

Yu Han: “Since it’s your 18th birthday, I’ll give you an adult drink at the bar.”

Luo Lin Yuan: “……”

Luo Lin Yuan: “By then, I’ll be celebrating my birthday with my friends. How can I go to the bar to find you for a drink!”

Yu Han: “Just kidding, you can’t drink.”

Luo Lin Yuan: “Don’t underestimate me, I can drink well, okay?”

Yu Han: “I’ve seen it, squatting on the side of the road almost being cheated away.”

Luo Lin Yuan: “……”

Yu Han: “Jokes aside, I can’t afford to give it if it’s too expensive.”

Yu Han: “Is it okay to bring you a bowl of longevity noodles?”

With tears hitting the screen, Luo Lin Yuan: “Good.”

He actually didn’t want gifts or money. He just wanted to have a meal with his parents that day.

But he can’t say these words, he can’t force his parents to do things they don’t want to do because of his existence.

In fact, when he talked to Yu Han about his name last time, he said there were no parents who didn’t love their children. That sentence was also said for himself, he believes that Lin Shu loves him.

Maybe that love was just not that obvious.
