Midnight Cinderella - Chapter 37
The atmosphere felt a little embarrassing for a while; at first, neither of them spoke a word.
Suddenly, a door-knock came from her neighbor’s house. Jiang Ran hauled Feng Jing inside and slammed the door shut.
Er Huang barked at them twice. Jiang Ran loosened her grip around Feng Jing’s arm, glanced over his shoulder and looked away. “I’m sorry …”
Feng Jing coughed and said, “It’s fine.”
A silence fell on the room again. When Feng Jing glimpsed at Jiang Ran’s lipstick and card on the edge of the table, his face grew hot again. “That …”
Jiang Ran followed his gaze and her heart beat a little faster: “I just received it. You sent it, right?”
“So, are you really Feng Jing?” Although the netizens already concluded that it was Feng Jing in the photo, he did not acknowledge that it was him. However, the two things he sent her could only have been owned by Feng Jing.
“So … you have been wearing a mask?”
“Yes…” Feng Jing’s already low voice could not get any lower. Although he had mentally prepared himself on the way to her place, he found that his preparation had been in vain after seeing Jiang Ran.
Jiang Ran stared at him for a moment and asked, “Can you remove your mask?”
“Yes…” He found that he couldn’t say anything else.
When Jiang Ran tried to reach out and saw that Feng Jing did not resist, she slowly moved her hand towards his ear and took off the band of the mask. The man’s face was gradually unveiled in front of her; he had a tall nose, sensual thin lips and a knife-like profile, which looked a bit dour.
Jiang Ran held the mask and slowly retracted her hand. Feng Jing looked at her, carefully watching her every move.
“You are really Feng Jing …” Jiang Ran muttered to herself for a while. Her eyes refocused and she asked, “Can I have your autograph?”
“…” Feng Jing fantasized about taking off his mask in front of Jiang Ran several times, but he never expected her reaction to be like this, “Yes, would you like to take a photo together?”
“Can I? Sure,” Jiang Ran eagerly ran to pick up her phone and took a selfie with Feng Jing.
“Just sign the name on the card,” She handed the pen and Bunny’s custom card to Feng Jing. Feng Jing took them, and scrupulously signed the card.
“Thank you,” Jiang Ran took the card back, blew at the new autograph and smiled at Feng Jing.
“… You’re welcome,” If she wanted, he would have even signed 100 more for her.
“Er,” Jiang Ran put away the card, suddenly looked at Feng Jing and asked, “Mr. Feng, did you know me from before?”
“I don’t know if you remember but when you returned to city A, you touched a fan’s head who waited for you at the airport. That person is me,” said Jiang Ran. At first, she thought it was just a coincidence, but once Feng Jing moved into her neighborhood, she put two and two together. It seemed to be all too coincidental, “Later, you moved here and … uh, although it seems a bit shameless to think this way, I still thought it was too much of a coincidence.”
Feng Jing: “…”
What would come would come. He thought for a while and said to Jiang Ran: “The first time I saw you was when I just walked out of the airport. You should also know that I moved here because I have not been well since I returned to city A. During this time, I have not been working. I just wanted to get some rest and change my environment. ”
He ended up using the same excuse with her as he had on Qin Fan.
“All right,” replied Jiang Ran, who was still a little puzzled. The area that she lived in was not particularly good. Feng Jing could have easily chosen a better place to rest. However, she had never been the type of person who liked to ask questions about other people’s affairs. Since he said what he said, she accepted his explanation at face value.
“I’m sorry for concealing this from you for so long.” The thing Feng Jing was most worried about was Jiang Ran getting upset about his concealment.
“It doesn’t matter. After all, you are a public person, so you must be mindful of your confidentiality,” Jiang Ran did not mind at all. If Feng Jing showed up in the community in a conspicuous way, it would have seemed strange.
Feng Jing was relieved. Sure enough, Jiang Ran was truly a gentle and considerate girl! Just when he wanted to say a few more words to her, the phone rang. Feng Jing glanced at it, smiled and apologized to Jiang Ran. Then he answered the phone. “What’s the matter?”
“Boss Feng, haven’t you found your item yet? Do you need me to go up there to help you?” Innocent Michel really thought that Feng Jing was looking for something.
Feng Jing pursed his lips impatiently and said, “No, I’ll be down soon.”
After he hung up the phone, Feng Jing looked at Jiang Ran, “Sorry, I have to leave now.”
“Ah, it doesn’t matter, you go first,” Jiang Ran thought a big star like Feng Jing must have a full schedule.
“That …” Feng Jing felt a little bit reluctant, “I’ll call you later.”
Feng Jing smiled at her, bowed farewell to Er Huang, then turned and walked out the door.
“Wait!” Jiang Ran quickly stopped him, “Mr. Feng, your mask.”
Feng Jing turned around, took the mask and stared at Jiang Ran. “You can just call me by my name.”
“…” Jiang Ran swallowed, cleared her throat, and finally shouted his full name, “Feng Jing!”
“Yes, I’m here,” Hopefully, whenever Jiang Ran called for him, he would be by her side.
After Feng Jing left, Jiang Ran began to wonder if everything that just happened was a dream. However, when she looked at the lipstick on the table and the card with Feng Jing’s signature, she once again believed that everything that just happened was real.
That big star, who could only be seen on the screen, was really with her just now.
