Lemon Soda Candy 檸檬汽水糖 by 蘇拾五 Su Shi Wu (HE)

During high school, the second most courageous thing Zhou Anran ever did was, on a day when Chen Luobai looked upset, she secretly put two lemon soda candies on his desk.

At that time, he was the proud son of heaven that everyone sought after.

She was an ordinary classmate whose name he couldn’t even remember.

Later, they met again in university, Zhou Anran who had to fight for her life to even get into the top university, was still as inconspicuous as ever in a sea of academic prodigies, while Chen Luobai instantly became the talk of the town the moment he entered the school.

Zhou Anran thought she would never cross paths with him again, but one time in an elective course, Chen Luobai put two pieces of the very same lemon soda candies on her desk.

“Have you ever tried this candy?”He seemed to ask casually.

Zhou Anran’s heart jumped, she lowered her head, not answering the question.

Chen Luobai added, “I came to know this candy because someone in high school secretly put two pieces on my desk before. When others stuffed love letters into my desk, that person just put two candies on my desk, but—”

He paused.

Zhou Anran couldn’t help but to tilt her head to look at him, at once, her gaze was met with the boy’s smiling focused eyes that were staring at her, as if he was indicating something.

“It’s pretty sweet.”

Later, on the night he kissed her for the first time, he said the same thing.

——All that you hope for will one day come true.
