So Pure So Flirtatious

Chapter 59

Chapter 59: Plane In the Sky...

Since Yang Ming wasn’t exposing it, Chen Mengyan didn’t have to make things awkward for herself. Understandably, she accepted the one yuan coin from him. 

Yang Ming naturally didn’t know what Chen Mengyan was thinking. When he saw that Chen Mengyan didn’t have a response, he thought that he had pretty good acting skills and felt really proud of it. “Mengyan, do you think this counts as a date right now?” 

Damn, what mouth is this? This is totally flirting! Once Yang Ming said those words, he immediately regretted it. He thought that it was because he was too proud of himself and didn’t watch his words at all. What would he do if Chen Mengyan was angry?

“Date my foot!” Chen Mengyan scolded, “I was just accompanying you to relax for a while after the exam. If you are always that naughty, don’t come find me next time!” 

That’s good. Chen Mengyan wasn’t angry. Yang Ming was able to be more courageous. “Does that mean we have a next time?” 

“Hehe, let’s wait for your exam results to come out first before we discuss again. See if there’s any improvement!” Chen Mengyan half-jokingly encouraged Yang Ming. 

Chen Mengyan was also confused. She started with only the intention to help him, then she agreed to some strange request that he made. But now, Chen Mengyan realized that she really liked being with him. A bit of chit-chat and jokes helped her to get through the tense Grade 12 with joy.

As she spoke with him, an 87 bus drove over and stopped in front of the bus station. The puffs of smoke rose to the sky. 

“The bus is here. I am going home...” Chen Mengyan actually felt that she wanted to stay longer. She could actually have so many things to talk about with a guy!

“Wait, Mengyan!” Yang Ming called. Yang Ming was also not willing to let it end so quickly. This was actually their “first date” so of course, he would want it to last longer! 

“Yeah, what’s the matter?” Chen Mengyan turned around and asked. At the moment when she was delayed, the 87 bus behind her let out vroom and left. All that was left was a cloud of unpleasant smoke. 

“Nothing much...” Once Yang Ming saw the bus drive off, he felt relieved and subconsciously said what he felt in his heart. 

“Ah!” After Chen Mengyan was dismayed for a while,  she understood what Yang Ming was actually doing and said agitatedly, “Yang Ming, how could you do this? Now the bus is gone. If I went home too late, my father would be worried and if from that point on, I can no longer hang out outside I can’t do anything about it!” Chen Mengyan purposely threatened Yang Ming.

“Ah? Really?” Yang Ming didn’t quite believe it. “This is only for a short while. Would your dad actually go to the police and report that you’ve gone missing?” 

Chen Mengyan said in her heart, Of course, there’s don’t need to report to the police. He simply doesn’t need to make a report! Then she said unhappily, “Yang Ming, I have already told you before. You should focus your attention on your studies. Once you are in a university, we have a lot of chances to meet one another. Why does such a small moment matter?“

“Hehe, actually, it wasn’t what you were thinking. I just stopped you because I didn’t want you to go on the 87 bus!” Yang Ming smiled cheekily. 

“Why?” Chen Mengyan asked, “Don’t tell me that there were some punks or something on that bus!” 

“I don’t really know whether there were any punks but who dares to board the 87 bus? Have you heard of an idiom called ‘plane in the sky, 87 on the ground’?” Yang Ming said this as if it were real. “This meant that the 87 bus driver could be really crazy. Boarding onto this kind of bus is as if you’re playing with your own life. How could I let you experience that?” [1] 

“Plane in the sky, 87 on the ground?” Chen Mengyan didn’t know whether to laugh or cry. Yang Ming was able to bring out this classic phrase! “Then what about the years that I boarded the bus and nothing ever happened?” 

Just as Chen Mengyan’s finished speaking this sentence, they heard a loud screeching sound from not far away. Then there was a loud bang!

Yang Ming turned his head to take a look. Damn! He was astonished. This 87 bus driver really did give too much respect to Yang Ming, right? The 87 bus crashed into a truck at the intersection not far from here! 

Chen Mengyan also dropped her jaw, showing an unbelievable expression.

“Look at that! Our pretty miss study commissary, I have just saved your life. Should you compensate me by marrying me?” Yang Ming pointed at the 87 bus not far ahead.

“Stop jinxing it!” Chen Mengyan gave Yang Ming a glare. “There’s a car accident in front of us and you still are in the mood to joke around?” 

“They have already applied the brakes. If you take a look at the damage at the front part of the bus, it’s obvious that no one was hurt!” As Yang Ming finished his sentence, the two drivers from the vehicles came out and started arguing on their own behalf. 

Chen Mengyan did see how it wasn’t really a big thing and she was reassured. In a short while, a 114 bus came. Chen Mengyan and Yang Ming said goodbye to one another and she boarded the bus. 

Yang Ming was only willing to leave after he had seen the bus disappear from his sight when it turned at another intersection. This was because, not long ago, there was an accident right in front of his eyes. 

Chen Mengyan stared at Yang Ming from her bus window and noticed how he was looking at her as she was leaving. She felt a sense of gratitude from her heart. The seed of love was nurtured by the little things. 

Yang Ming had just left. Not far away, a Santana Police car started and began to follow him. [2]

Once Yang Ming was back into his housing area, he saw a police car that stopped not far ahead of himself. Yang Ming was slightly more sensitive to police cars recently because he had entered the police station a few times. The moment he saw the car, he unconsciously thought that the police car was here for him. 

“Yang Ming!” The person in the police car was indeed here for Yang Ming as Chen Fei rolled down his window and shouted to him. 

“Uncle Chen, why are you here?” Yang Ming stopped his footsteps. 

“I am here to settle a few things, so conveniently I came here to visit you too!” Chen Fei said, “You made me wait for a while. Since you all were having exams today, you should have been back home quite a while ago. Why are you only back here at such a late hour?” 

“Ah? Uncle Chen, how did you know that I had an exam today?” Yang Ming was shocked. He really is the head of the criminal investigation team. I didn’t even have to say it and he already knew it? 

Chen Fei didn’t answer Yang Ming directly. “Hehe, why? Not going home after school - you went on a date, right?” 

“Hehe, Uncle Chen, how did you see through it?” Yang Ming laughed embarrassingly.

“What did you say?!” Chen Fei’s voice raised in pitch. “You really went on a date with your girlfriend?”

Chapter Notes:

[1] “Plane in the sky, 87 on the ground” is an idiom, but Yang Ming misused it in this context.

[2] If you are curious what a Santana Police car looks like...
