Chapter 96.2 — A Warm Gift
Edited by: Larkspur
Queen, do you need to be this virtuous? You actually knitted a pair of gloves for Film Emperor! They were on the verge of tears from this gesture, ok!
For some, the more expensive a gift, the more moved they would be. A part of it probably has to do with reality and even more so vanity and materialism. However, some are moved by the rarity of the gift. Because of how hard it is to obtain the gift, it is worth being emotionally touched by. This is a very normal human psychology. Of course, this is just one aspect of it. A lot of the gifts, by themselves, probably do not hold much value; but have a lot of thoughts put into which makes people treasure and cherish them.
However, to others, no matter how thoughtful the gift, the value is very hard to measure. Because the value is very hard to measure in terms of money, no matter how expensive the gift, to those who are satisfied with just receiving it; it isn’t worth thinking about. This could instill a type of sorrow or loss in some as a result of having received too much. A gift that pleases one’s heart is indeed rare because this requires a lot of thought placed into!
To Qin Jiran, however, no matter what Yanyi gifted him, he would be incomparably happy. Speaking of gifts, she had personally made them all for him. Just based on the thoughts she placed into it, Qin Jiran was incomparably moved.
As for others, being in the entertainment circle, they were all too familiar with Su Yanyi’s personality. No one could’ve ever imagined that with Su Yanyi’s status and personality, she would gift him something like this. If the box contained an expensive and famous watch or keys that represented different possibilities, they wouldn’t be surprised. But this was just a pair of simple woolen gloves…
“You knitted this?” Qin Jiran asked, softly. Although he had an answer in mind, he didn’t really believe in these surprises.
“Yes, try it on.” She’d spent the entire afternoon with the system learning. The system’s assist function was indeed very powerful.
Qin Jiran couldn’t wait to try on the gloves. He waved his hands and noticed that it suited him and felt very comfortable. He immediately felt warm.
“Yanyi, let’s go home.” Qin Jiran grabbed Su Yanyi’s hand as he spoke in an incomparably gentle tone.
Two people, hand in hand, walked away leaving an envious and drooling crew behind.
Whoever gifts me a pair of personally knitted gloves, I will be their boyfriend!
Wow! The Queen is so virtuous. Film Emperor is very blessed!
President Su is so considerate. I’m so jealous and envious!
First, my girlfriend kept telling me how handsome Film Emperor Qin was. I endured it. After all, my girlfriend was gentler than his! Later, my girlfriend kept on telling me about Film Emperor and President Su’s PDA! I endured this too. After all, my girlfriend and I are very affectionate with each other. Now I can’t endure it anymore! Even President Su knows to gift her boyfriend personally knitted gloves. Why don’t I have one?! Is my girlfriend fake? I can’t believe how she isn’t as considerate as President Su. I am really disappointed!
She gifted him personally knitted gloves, whoa! President Su is so romantic. I also want a pair of gloves…
Film Emperor, the Queen is so gentle and considerate. What are you waiting for? You need to work hard and treat her lovingly so the Queen will know too!”
What should I do? I’m so envious of Film Emperor Qin. Single people want to date!
Clearly, a male fan’s words!
I want to chop my hands off since I don’t have gloves!
Friend, just how resentful are you?!
“Are you hungry? Did you eat dinner?” Qin Jiran asked while driving.
“I ate.” Su Yanyi responded and asked after a pause, “You?”
“I ate a bit. I’m going to cook some noodles when we get home. Do you want some? Or do you want to go out and eat?” Dinner was too rushed. He hurriedly ate a bit. After filming for such a long time, he was a bit hungry now.
“Go home and eat.” She originally wasn’t hungry but after what Qin Jiran said, Su Yanyi wanted to eat a bit. She really wasn’t full from dinner. Now, she could have some snacks.
The two happily went back home to eat some noodles. Qin Jiran ate a whole bowl and Su Yanyi finished a smaller one. Despite the fact that no one spoke during the meal, nonetheless, a harmonious air lingered.
Qin Jiran remembered everything Su Yanyi had said. Especially when Su Yanyi had repeated it. He would definitely not forget. So when he received the gifts, he didn’t really need Yanyi to especially remind him. He remembered to give gifts in return. But in reality, Yanyi had done so first. Also, it was mostly because of how busy he was with work.
It was late by the time dinner ended. However, Qin Jiran didn’t say much before he went directly to his study.
Su Yanyi looked around, and without a word directly returned to her bedroom to shower.
Once she was done, she wrapped her wet hair with a towel and walked out. Noticing that Qin Jiran wasn’t back still, her eyes flickered. She turned around and walked to the study.
When Su Yanyi pushed the door and walked in, it seemed like Qin Jiran was getting ready to leave. They were incredibly close to each other and Su Yanyi could see an album or something of the sort in his hands. Qin Jiran also saw Su Yanyi’s dripping hair despite the towel around it.
“It’s for me?” Su Yanyi asked directly.
“Want me to dry your hair?” Qin Jiran asked helplessly, in a tone filled with pampering.
In a tacit understanding, they exchanged their items. As he handed her the album, he said, “It’s reluctantly considered as a gift. Don’t dislike it please.”
Then he pulled Su Yanyi to the side and sat her down. He started to dry her hair while Su Yanyi started to flip through the album in interest.
The first picture in the album was a picture of the three of them. She wanted to laugh at the little golden turtle’s stupidity. Qin Jiran laughed dotingly, Su Yanyi flickered her eyes. Su Yanyi thought her cold and indifferent face was very beautiful still.
The photo album wasn’t like the ordinary ones. It was the type where someone could casually paste the pictures and was all handmade. It was in line with Qin Jiran’s taste. He had glued the pictures and written captions for each. He had indeed spent a lot of time. Sometimes it was just some simple words to wish her happiness but it was enough to make her feel that way.
Su Yanyi looked through each one. The pictures weren’t taken professionally. Most of it was from their everyday life, especially the second half of the album. It contained pictures of Qin Jiran filming outside and the time they built the snowmen when they went on sleds. There were also some that were taken without her knowledge. These pictures that solely captured the two of them, brought warmth to their hearts.
The last picture was a picture of just herself. The corner of her lips was curled into a smile and there was one in her eyes too. She smiled faintly but happily, very pleased.
“I don’t think I have seen this picture online.” Su Yanyi had a good memory. There were many pictures of her and Qin Jiran’s PDA online. But this picture didn’t seem to be there. It was also her first time seeing herself with such a happy smile. It felt kind of strange to her as if this wasn’t herself. Didn’t she like to have a cold face? Could it be that whenever she’s with Qin Jiran, she would smile delightfully?
“I hid it.” How could he bear to let everyone see this beautiful side of Su Yanyi? Perhaps, this belonged to his desire to possess her. Hopefully, only he could see this beautiful side of hers. Then, he could hide it forever in his heart.
He remembered the feeling of happiness surging when he saw this picture from Jiang Xiaobin’s camera. It felt like the entire world was smiling at him. He felt extremely lucky and satisfied. Yanyi’s beautiful smile surfaced when she was with him. Whenever he thought of this, he was extremely happy.
“Hide it? Why?” Su Yanyi didn’t really get his drift. This was a really good picture. Why did he want to hide it? People only hide ugly pictures. For someone as confident as her, there wasn’t a bad side!
Qin Jiran hugged Su Yanyi and spoke in a very gentle tone. “Because I want to hide you. I only want myself to see this beautiful side of you. I will be jealous if someone else sees you like this.”
This was the first time this man ever confessed his jealousy and desire. Su Yanyi raised her eyebrows and observed the man. He allowed her to look at him and he looked back openly. This was the truest thought in his heart. He wasn’t scared of revealing it to Yanyi!
