“Mommy Wen, stop gazing.” Yan Rusheng stretched his hand to cover Xuxu’s face before pulling her around. He teased her as they walked. “If our little girl gets married to a faraway place, wouldn’t you cry your eyes out?”
Xuxu coldly snorted. “She wouldn’t.”
She clutched Yan Rusheng’s arm with both hands and leaned against him closely.
“Bai Jing, what are you looking at? Let’s go.”
Su Yue turned around and saw that Bai Jing was still dawdling behind and throwing sneak glances behind her.
Bai Jing grunted in response and threw a final look behind before hastening her footsteps.
She bent her head with furrowed eyebrows, looking troubled.
They dashed towards the field.
Someone suddenly called Su Yue, and so she stopped before turning around.
A skinny man was walking towards her from behind a tree. He was clad in a white shirt and black pants. He was wearing spectacles and he looked graceful.
He smiled as he walked towards them. Su Yue tightly furrowed her eyebrows as though she despised him.
She pressed her lips without responding. Zhao Zheng walked to her and smiled warmly. “Did you forget me? I’m your third sister-in-law’s classmate. We met yesterday.”
Su Yue muttered under her breath and bowed her head.
Zhao Zheng overlooked her aloof and cold attitude and continued to shower her with concern. “Military training must be tiring.”
Su Yue clammed up and peered at the ground.
Zhao Zheng’s expression hardened a little when Su Yue ignored him. But his tone remained warm and friendly. “Is this your classmate?”
He pointed to Bai Jing.
Su Yue nodded and was about to excuse herself when Zhao Zheng interrupted. “Is she your good friend, Bai Jing?”
“Yes.” Su Yue nodded and a crease appeared in the middle of her eyebrows. She looked extremely annoyed and impatient.
Zhao Zheng seemed awkward, but his eyes were cold. He glanced at Bai Jing before introducing himself. “I’m from the Chinese department. I’m Zhao Zheng. You may look for me in school if you need help.”
Without waiting for Bai Jing to respond, Su Yue spoke in a high-pitched voice. “My third brother said that we can look for the principal.”
*’Isn’t the principal more capable than you?’ *Su Yue thought smugly to herself.
Zhao Zheng couldn’t maintain his expression any longer. He smiled awkwardly, but his eyes were full of hatred.
He felt that Su Yue was just like Yan Rusheng—arrogant and haughty. She was a replica of Yan Rusheng.
He looked at Bai Jing and smiled. “I’m high school classmates with Yan Rusheng too, and I know many interesting stories about him.”
Bai Jing shifted her eyes guiltily. She hurriedly bowed her head to avoid looking into Zhao Zheng’s eyes.
She had a feeling that his shrewd and sly-looking eyes could see through her.
“Professor Zhao, we need to go.” Su Yue grabbed Bai Jing and pulled her away.
They walked for some distance before Zhao Zheng’s yell sounded. “Su Yue, you can look for me in the office if you need help. Same goes for your classmate!”
His eyes stared intently at Su Yue and Bai Jing’s figures, and he smirked.
“This man is really annoying. He is the love rival of my third brother, ignore him the next time.” Su Yue reminded Bai Jing.
It startled Bai Jing to hear that. “He likes your third sister-in-law?”
