School was over for the day, so there were a lot of students walking down the stairs. Since he was blocked by the crowd, he roared in annoyance, "Move to the side!"
A path was instantly formed on the crowded stairs between the fourth and first floors.
Even so, he still missed her.
When he rushed out of the block of classroomsand reached the spot where he last saw "Cola girl," she was already gone.
He stood where she'd just been a moment earlier as his mood instantly soured.

That was when he turned his head and saw Fatty and the gang, who were supposed to be cleaning the toilets, rush down in a hurrywith their mops and brooms. They asked anxiously, "Chen Ge, who do you want us to beat up?"

In that moment, an infinite number of curses crossed He Jichen's mind.
