“I’m so full.” Under the dim light of the noodle restaurant, Cheng Chu put down the big bowl and squinted contentedly.
Her white porcelain-like cheeks were flushed with heat, and her lips were moist and radiant, which was indescribably moving.
Gu Miao’s hand holding the chopsticks trembled, he pursed his lips, took out the paper from the side, and handed it to the girl.
Cheng Chu took it, wiped her mouth, and looked at the gloomy sky outside with her hands up.
Her peach blossom eyes, which were always shining, seemed to melt into the dark clouds and dimmed a little.
“You, today, are you unhappy?” Gu Miao hesitated for a moment, then put down his chopsticks and asked.
She was not as active as usual today, and her smile was less bright.
“No.” Cheng Chu lowered her eyes, her eyelashes trembled slightly like butterfly wings.
Gu Miao thoughtfully didn’t ask anymore, he stood up and went to the cashier to pay.
“Let’s go.” When he came back, he said to the girl who bowed her head: “Take you, go out, and walk around.” The two walked out of the noodle shop, it was already dark, and the bustling city revealed a bit of quiet beauty at night.
Gu Miao straddled the bicycle.
He was a little thin, but his back revealed an indescribable peace of mind.
Cheng Chu slanted onto the back seat of the bicycle and reached out and grabbed the corner of his clothes.
Today he was wearing a velvet coat, which felt dense and felt like a fluffy feather when touched.
Cheng Chu couldn’t help but rub it a few times before he said, “Where are we going?” The boy’s body was as stiff as a rock, he stepped on the pedal, and his voice trembled: “Where do you want to go?”
“I don’t I know.” Cheng Chu couldn’t help but hold the corner of his clothes, “You decide.”
The night wind was cold and astringent, but the thin back of the young man was like a wall, shielding Cheng Chu’s from most of the cold wind.
But every now and then, a few wisps of breeze came in, blowing the broken hair on her cheeks slightly.
With the wind howling, she heard the boy’s hoarse voice, “Hold tighter.”
Cheng Chu obediently grabbed his jacket even tighter.
The cold wind blew on Gu Miao’s face, his hair was brushed up, and his cheeks were frozen like ice.
But a fire seemed to rise from his waist and abdomen, and the raging heat spread throughout his body. He couldn’t help but step on the pedals faster.
Moments later, the bike stopped downstairs in the mall.
“It’s here.” He said quietly.
Cheng Chu looked at the bustling shopping mall in front of him and got off the bike in a daze.
Is this to take her to go shopping?
The boy led her into the mall and followed him to the second floor.
They finally stopped at the entrance of the game hall.
“Playing games, is it alright?” He lowered his eyes, and the clean marble tiles of the mall reflected his apprehension.
When he was working in a milk tea shop, he heard the younger brother who went to work with him saying that there is a game arcade in this mall, and he must bring her to play when he finds a girlfriend.
Thinking of this word, his ears blushed red again. “Isn’t it a little shameless for me to take her to such a holy place for couples to date? Does she feel like he has intentions?”
Gu Miao felt a little panic in his heart, his hands on both sides were clenched tightly, and he didn’t dare to look up at her.
“If, if you don’t want to, play, we can…” His tone was a little low.
“Okay, let’s go in.”
The words “go back” had reached his throat, but he swallowed it.
The girl’s voice was calm and faintly light.
There was no displeasure.
Gu Miao breathed a sigh of relief, let go of his clenched hands, and finally summoned up the courage to raise his eyes.
There was a strong fragrance in the shopping mall, but Gu Miao could only smell the light fragrance of the girl’s body, which was refreshing.
Her clear eyes were shining, and she looked straight at him like this, “What’s wrong?”
“No, no.” Gu Miao’s heart beat fast, and she couldn’t help but stutter again, “I, I’ll go change the currency.”
He panicked, not knowing that he was nervous.
Cheng Chu looked at his somewhat comical back, the annoyance in her heart was swept away, and she couldn’t help laughing out loud.
Fortunately, the sound of the game hall was noisy, and the boy did not hear her laughter.
After a while, he came back with a pile of game coins.
“What shall we play first?” Cheng Chu asked, picking two game coins.
Gu Miao shook his head.
He had never been to such a place.
When he was young, he had already experienced the pain of life.
While the boys in the school were still playing basketball, playing games, and discussing the new sneakers, he rode a worn-out bicycle by himself, rushing around in the icy wind and snow in the city, just for an hourly salary of ten yuan.
He cooked with flour, handed out flyers, washed dishes, and even moved bricks at the construction site. But never played the game.
Cheng Chu looked at the profile of the young man, who still had the old black-rimmed glasses on his tall nose, showing a strong bookish air.
He studied so hard and worked part-time. He had never been to a place like this before.
