away dark night, as if this could make him see the same sky as Lu Qi,

“I heard…… It will snow in the capital tomorrow.”

Lu Qi instantaneously understood the meaning,

“Ok, tomorrow you and me.
We’ll watch it together.”

Huo Ming Chen reached out towards the window and poked at it.
His finger began to draw pictures on the window fogged up with condensation,

“What if it doesn’t snow over there?”

He couldn’t see Lu Qi’s expression over the phone, but his voice was quite pitiful,

“Then I beg of Prince Huo, you will graciously lend your presence to video call me, so I can see the first snowfall of the capital.”

The first snowfall, whether it is in a novel or on television, people will always give it the special meaning of romance, as a sign of something beautiful, something good in the relationship.


Lu Qi looked at the weather for his area and felt like there wouldn’t be a big chance for snow tomorrow.

It is not complete without sleeping in on a holiday.
The Lu family did not have a lot of relatives over here and for the rest, they don’t normally interact with each other.
So the brother and sister pair could sleep until the sun was already high up in the sky.
Because Lu Qi didn’t sleep that well yesterday, he woke up later than Lu Yuan.

“Lu Qi, time for breakfast.”


Lu Yuan had tied her hair up into a ponytail, and was dressed with a light white lamb fur jacket which made her look more youthful and pretty.
She knocked on the door, and lazily leaned against the door frame,

“Li Si Ao has come back too.
He’s even coming over to greet1 us for the new year.”

Lu Qi opened the door, eyes still not quite open,

“It’s not even the first day of the new year, what are they greeting us for? What did they say?”

Li Si Ao was the neighbor of the Lu family.
He had always liked Lu Yuan since they were small and was always following behind her like a little duckling.
They only lost contact when Lu Yuan went out to work a few years ago.

“Nothing, just gave us a bunch of gifts.
Milk, bird’s nest, and the like.
I didn’t take it though.”

“Huh, that’s rare of you, when did you become this generous?”

Lu Qi went to brush his teeth and clean his face in the washroom.
He could hear Lu Yuan’s chattering quite clearly through the closed door,

“I don’t even like him, why would I want his expensive stuff?”

Lu Qi paused after hearing this, thinking that that is quite true.

Breakfast has been pushed into lunch, boiled congee, golden egg pancakes, and a few other small dishes.
Lu Qi’s taste buds have not awoken yet, so he couldn’t really taste and ate quite numbly.

A senior alumni of C university had opened his own workshop, and the results weren’t bad.
Pretty much every year he would come back to the university to hire new emerging graduates, and obviously the focus is on those who have the highest grades.
Feng Jie, the student council president and a third year student,  was about to graduate.
He had the mind to forge his own path instead of using his family background and had very early on reached out to Lu Qi and a few other students to work in his company.

A young ambitious man will always need to fall down and experience setbacks in order to grow up, but Feng Jie was an exception.
In his previous life, his first step into society with his company had pretty good results.
Firstly, it’s because he himself had the skills to back it up.
Secondly, most of those in C university went to work for him, and thirdly, because of his family background with the Feng family, he’s had it all covered from timing, personnel and authority.

Lu Qi sat in front of the computer for the entire day.
Lu Yuan could not understand what he was doing, and only dared to disturb him for dinner.


She made sure she walked lightly towards him, as if it was during the time of the college entrance exams, and everyone in the family was afraid to disturb him, not even wanting their breaths to move a single thing out of place,

“Mom wants me to call you out for dinner.”

“Ok, I’ll be right out.”

Lu Qi snapped back to reality and saved his programming code.
He stretched his body a bit and then discovered that it was already night time.
He subconsciously turned to look at his cell phone, but found no messages or phone calls, and his face had a tiny fraction of a scowl, so tiny that you would have to be close to his face to see.


The author has something to say:
#Discuss Lu Qi’s anxiety, scaring himself for the entire day#
Author: A foundless worry2, clever people really can’t undergo being scared.


*1   New year greetings: Chinese New Year has multiple festivities and takes over multiple days, and there may be quite a few differences depending on where you go.
But most simply, down to the bare bones, each day has different custom or things you do.
For example, one day you greet/give blessings to your family, one day you greet your relatives, one day you eat certain foods, one day you don’t wash your hair, one day you clean the entire house to welcome the new year, etc. 

*2   A foundless worry, “杞人憂天” means as a metaphor to not worry about crossing a bridge until you are there to cross it/don’t cross a bridge before you come to it.
Saying that the person is uselessly worrying when they are not there or at that point to have those worries.
