She should have studied harder! An Xiaxia had never regretted not learning enough English as much as she did right now.
The singing went on.
An Xiaxia’s cheeks went scarlet red at one line in the lyrics.
“I love you baby…” Sheng Yize hummed it quietly in his deep voice, with the clean tone characteristic to teenagers.
Wasn’t that “I love you, baby”?
An Xiaxia blushed and felt extremely awkward.
She then figured out another line shortly afterwards and typed both lines into the search engine.
The search soon came back with the name and the lyrics of the song. An Xiaxia tapped it open and only blushed even more!
Sheng Yize was singing a classic love song and the lyrics basically said —
“You’re just too good to be true
I can’t take my eyes off of you
You’d be like heaven to touch
I wanna hold you so much
At long last love has arrived
I thank God I’m alive
You’re just too good to be true
I love you, baby, trust in me when I say
I love you, baby, don’t bring me down I pray
Just let me love you, baby, let me love you…”
Aww! She could see fireworks in her head!
An Xiaxia pressed her hand to her thumping heart and stole a glance at Sheng Yize, who was still singing.
His long fingers plucked the strings carelessly and his slightly messy fringe had fallen over his forehead. He had lowered his bright gaze and his long lashes made a beautiful shadow under his eyes.
He seemed to sense An Xiaxia’s gaze and he shifted his eyes at that moment, looking right into An Xiaxia’s.
The song ended exactly at that instant. He smiled a little at An Xiaxia, which sent her heart racing again.
Burying her face in her hands, she pretended to clean up the table and she hid away by the table with the food.
After Sheng Yize put down the guitar, Chi Yuanfeng took over and began to sing. For a while, the roof was filled with his light-hearted singing voice.
An Xiaxia pushed the tiger lily buds around on her plate and suddenly noticed a tall figure standing beside her.
Looking up, she saw it was Sheng Yize and flushed right away.
Sheng Yize appeared to be perfectly calm. He had expected that An Xiaxia wouldn’t understand a word of the English song.
Judging by her reaction, had she understood the lyrics?
At the thought of that, he decided to tease her a little. He moved closer and asked in a husky voice, “Do you want anything?”
Cheeks flushing, An Xiaxia stammered, “I… I’m not picky. I eat everything, apart, apart from carrots!”
“You’re quite easy to take care of, then,” chuckled Sheng Yize. There was a teasing tone in his voice.
An Xiaxia blushed. “So what? It’s not like I need you to take care of me!”
Sheng Yize raised an eyebrow. “Oh? Do you want me to take care of you or not? I come with a lot of meat~”
His cajoling tone worked perfectly for a little glutton like An Xiaxia.
Eyes twinkling, An Xiaxia even asked innocently, “Really?”
Sheng Yize fought back a laugh, blinked, and put on a serious face. “I only take care of my girlfriend and that’s not you. Why do you bother to ask? Move, I’m going to grill a chicken wing now.”
An Xiaxia made way for him, looking desolate.
Why did she have the feeling that Sheng Yize was making fun of her and she couldn’t do anything about it?
“Do you like that song?” Sheng Yize pretended to ask in passing. However, at a closer look, one could make out the skin behind his ears turning pink.
An Xiaxia stared unblinkingly at the chicken wing in his hand. Sheng Yize recognized that look right away and smiled. “Say you do if you want this.”
