Bai Jing looked at Yan Rusheng and nodded politely before leaving. She strode in the direction of the convenience store.
“Hey, Bai…” Su Yue was about to call Bai Jing as her sudden departure had puzzled her.
Yan Rusheng cut across Su Yue. “Yueyue, I have something to tell you. It’s only for your ears.”
He felt that he had to be explicit so she wouldn’t misunderstand him. Given her character, she always had these endless questions.
Su Yue nodded and looked away.
Yan Rusheng opened the car door and said to Su Yue, “Get in.”
“Okay.” Su Yue responded and entered the car. Yan Rusheng shut the door and went to the driver’s seat.
He sped up and the car left the campus in no time.
Bai Jing, who had just reached the convenience store, turned around and caught a glimpse of the champagne-colored Bentley.
She looked forlorn as she stood on the spot.
A man’s voice disrupted Bai Jing, and it jolted her awake. She adjusted herself by bowing her head before turning around.
A man wearing a white shirt and black pants slowly strolled towards her. He was wearing gold-rimmed spectacles.
Bai Jing was trying to remember his face before speaking out. “Professor Zhao.”
Zhao Zheng smiled as he went near Bai Jing. He adjusted his spectacles. “Isn’t Su Yue with you?”
Bai Jing pressed her lips and answered, “Her third brother came and fetched her.”
She paused before continuing. “Professor Zhao, I need to get some stuff. Goodbye.”
Su Yue had warned her to ignore him if they crossed paths.
She also felt that Professor Zhao gave her an uncomfortable feeling.
Bai Jing was about to turn around.
“Bai Jing.” Zhao Zheng stopped her.
Bai Jing turned and glanced at him. “Is there anything else?”
Zhao Zheng grinned and said, “Yan Rusheng, Xuxu and I were classmates in middle and high school. We were even in the same class, so our friendship goes way beyond.”
He was trying to flaunt his friendship with Xuxu and Yan Rusheng.
It was indeed something to brag about. But the way he phrased it made people feel like mocking him instead.
Bai Jing responded, but her face remained deadpan.
Zhao Zheng quietly surveyed Bai Jing. An ambiguous smile appeared on his face and he spoke once again. “The previous time when we had dinner together, Xuxu mentioned about you and asked me if there was any way of helping you get into A University.”
Bai Jing was startled and her eyes gleamed. But she remained mum.
“You and Su Yue has just started school. Please look for me if you need help. Su Yue may be able to look for the principal since Yan Rusheng knows him. But if it’s you, it’s a different story.”
He sounded as if he was trying to drive a wedge between her and Su Yue.
A shard seemed to have pierced through Bai Jing’s heart.
