Qiao Anhao looked at Lu Jinnian without saying a word or making a single sound. The car was silent for a minute, until it turned into the car park ahead.
The cinema attendant had already given Lu Jinnian the tickets in advance. When they got out of the car, he also brought along the bag with the blanket and pillows his assistant had prepared for him.
There were ten minutes left before the movie was due to start. Before they went through the ticket inspection, Qiao Anhao ran over to the counter and bought a big box of popcorn and two cokes. When they walked into the theater itself and found their seats, the movie was just about to start. The place that was originally rowdy, instantly became quiet.
Qiao Anhao put the popcorn in-between her and Lu Jinnian's seats. As she stared firmly at the big screen, every now and then she would reach for a popcorn and shove it in her mouth.
The air conditioner in the room was on high. After about ten minutes into the movie, Lu Jinnian already felt cold. He took out the blanket from the bag, and laid it out across Qiao Anhao's legs.
Qiao Anhao turned her head towards him. His irresistibly handsome side profile was practically stuck to the tip of her nose. Her racing heart skipped a beat. She waited for him to cover her with the blanket and go back to his seat, then hurriedly grabbed a fistful of popcorn and shoved it in her mouth.
She instinctively realized at that moment that, since Lu Jinnian had sat down beside her till this moment, the popcorn hadn't been touched, and so she nudged his arm and pointed at the box.
Beside the popcorn was a bottle coke. Lu Jinnian thought that Qiao Anhao wanted him to help her take the cap off, so he grabbed for the bottle, took off the cap, and put a straw in for her, then handed it to her.
Qiao Anhao took the coke, tilted her head, and whispered into his ear, "Do you want to eat popcorn?"
Lu Jinnian nodded to show he understood, and the two of them continued to watch the movie. Every now and then, Qiao Anhao would feel Lu Jinnian beside her take some popcorn.
Half-way through the movie, there was a rather raunchy scene. Most couples’ first choice is to go to the cinemas for a date, and so raunchy scenes like those would always fill the room with an air of romance. Some couples that were a bit touchy would already start hugging and kissing.
Qiao Anhao could even hear the man and woman behind her hugging and kissing, making raunchy noises. This, mixed with the gasping from the movie, made people blush and hearts race.
It wasn't like Qiao Anhao hadn't experienced it before whilst watching TV at home. She wasn't really bothered by revealing scenes like these, but at that moment, she found it a little awkward watching such raunchy scenes on the big screen with Lu Jinnian sitting right next to her.
Her pupils wandered everywhere, but every now and then, they would land on Lu Jinnian's side profile. He sat casually beside her, watching the big screen without so much as a blink. There weren't any emotions evident on his face, as though the entangled naked bodies didn't exist.
Qiao Anhao reached for the popcorn, coincidentally at the same time as Lu Jinnian. That was how their hands touched one another.
Lu Jinnian, who originally stared directly at the big screen, turned his head and looked at Qiao Anhao. Deep within his eyes, it was like there was a bright shimmer of light that shone vigorously. 5 Best Chinese Romance Books of 2018 So Far
