If The Moon Won’t Hold You

Chapter 32.1: Favour

The next day, Cen Ning went directly to Hao Jie’s office as soon as she arrived at the company.

She first said a few words of thanks to Hao Jie, and then mentioned resigning.

When Hao Jie heard this, he looked at her in surprise. “Are you sure?”

Cen Ning: “Teacher, I have learned a lot from you. I am grateful… But I’ve decided to resign.”

Hao Jie had naturally heard many rumours about Cen Ning recently. However, he only cared about strength and nothing else. He liked Cen Ning, so he felt a little regretful when he heard she decided to resign.


“I didn’t know that Liu Xin’s affairs had such a big impact on you.” Hao Jie frowned. “I didn’t think about it thoroughly enough when I decided.”

“You are not in the wrong, but it is difficult for me to work in the company under this situation…” Cen Ning hurriedly said.

There were so many rumours. Everyone treated her peacefully on the surface, but they spoke ruthlessly about her behind her back.

“The person in charge is my friend. I’ve mentioned you before in front of him, and he will be thrilled if you join them.”


Cen Ning was surprised and happy. “Thank you, teacher!”

“It’s nothing.” Hao Jie’s expression was as usual. He didn’t ask for credit or show off. He merely waved his hand and continued, “Complete the resignation formalities.”


After knowing that Cen Ning was leaving, colleagues in the office were all surprised. Some looked sad, and some looked regretful, but Cen Ning knew that not all expressions in the workplace could be trusted.

After coming out of the office building, Cen Ning breathed a sigh of relief.

Just as she was about to take a taxi home, her cell phone rang suddenly. Cen Ning glanced at it and found that Zhang Ziyi had sent her a message. [Sister is broken-hearted! Come to my house and drink with me!]

Cen Ning: “…”

She had never even never dated. Where did the broken heart come from?

Cen Ning immediately replied to her. “What did you say?”

Zhang Ziyi: [I’ll tell you in person, come to the house near my school, you have been here before.]

Zhang Ziyi lived outside because she didn’t like living on campus. Cen Ning had been to that house twice, and she lived alone in a rather large apartment.

Cen Ning was confused, but she still took a taxi to go.



The doorbell rang, and after a while, someone came to open the door.

“Ziyi, what did you say about a broken heart…” Before she could finish, she realized it was Song Ci that came to open the door.

Song Ci looked at her from behind the door frame and almost rolled his eyes speechlessly. “You’re here too, f*ck… I suspect this girl sent a group chat message.”

“What group chat message! I only called you two!” Zhang Ziyi’s roar came from behind.

It was the first time that Cen Ning and Song Ci had met and talked since the last call from Song Ci, who was drunk. But after seeing the same usual expression on Song Ci’s face, Cen Ning felt relieved. “What the hell is going on with her?”

Song Ci: “I don’t know, I just arrived.”

Cen Ning nodded, went in and changed her shoes.

After entering, Cen Ning discovered that there was a circle of wine in the living room. Zhang Ziyi was sitting in the pile of wine bottles with a silly smile on her face.

“Cen Ning, you came! Hurry! Come and drink with me!”

Cen Ning walked over to her and squatted down. “What the hell are you doing?”

Zhang Ziyi looked at her fixedly. The smile on her face suddenly seemed to be taken off, and it disappeared without a trace. She lowered her eyes slowly, “Ningning, let me tell you, recently… I had dinner with Tang Zheng, and I confessed to him.”


Cen Ning: “…”

“But he rejected me.” Zhang Ziyi’s eyes filled with tears. “He rejected me… that b*stard.”

Cen Ning and Song Ci looked at each other, both speechless.

They all knew that Zhang Ziyi liked Tang Zheng. It was because Tang Zheng has not been here all these years, but Zhang Ziyi kept talking about him, it was really hard to not know.

“It is so obvious that I like him, and it is so obvious that he rejected me. But I just didn’t want to recognize it, I just didn’t believe it, I just wanted to take a gamble… But the result is still the same, he said that he always regarded me as a sister, F*ck him, who wants to be his sister! D*mn Tang Zheng!”

Zhang Ziyi sobbed while scolding Tang Zheng. Cen Ning looked uncomfortable and kept wiping Zhang Ziyi’s tears with a tissue. “Don’t cry…”

“I’m not convinced! I’m mad!” Zhang Ziyi whimpered. “He only knows how to make me angry all day!”

Cen Ning wasn’t very good at comforting people. Seeing Zhang Ziyi so sad, the only thing she could do was to stay with her.

Song Ci probably thought the same way. He sat down beside her and opened a can of beer. “Okay, okay, your crying is so ugly. You’re uncomfortable, right? Drink, and you won’t know anything if you’re drunk.”

“Good brother!” Zhang Ziyi looked at Song Ci with snot and tears. “It’s right to call you here! Drink!”

Song Ci toasted her, raised his head and took a few mouthfuls.

Zhang Ziyi wiped away her tears. “Song Ci, don’t worry, next time this happens to you, I will give my life to accompany the gentleman!”


Song Ci: “… Go away.”

Cen Ning: “Ziyi, don’t drink too much.”

Zhang Ziyi shook her head. “You let me drink it. It’s too uncomfortable for me not to drink it, Ningning. Can you let me drink it?”

Cen Ning has never seen Zhang Ziyi’s expression like this, wronged, lost, sad… This was something that Zhang Ziyi, who had always been lively and cheerful, had never been before.

Cen Ning sighed. “Okay… I’ll accompany you to drink.”

After an unknown amount of time, Cen Ning only knew that Zhang Ziyi was completely drunk.

Song Ci pushed Zhang Ziyi onto the bed and then walked to the living room. He looked at Cen Ning, who was still sitting in the pile of wine bottles and said in a low voice, “Just let her sleep like this. What are you going to do?”

Cen Ning didn’t drink much, but a little was enough to make her head dizzy. She supported her chin, raised her eyes and said, “I’ll stay here with her. You head back first.”

Song Ci: “Can you two manage just with you two?”

“Yes, I didn’t drink much.”

Song Ci nodded. “Then call me if you need anything.”

Cen Ning gave an “mhm,” and added, “Be careful on the way back.”

“I know.”

Song Ci took his phone and walked towards the entrance, but after a few steps, he turned around and said, “Cen Ning.”


“Don’t be like her one day.”
