Jiao Chen had the ability to fight back, but he always restrained himself.
She couldn’t understand him at all.
Jiao Chen smiled gently. “If someone will bear the consequences for you forever, you can then do whatever you want.”
‘If someone will bear the consequences for him forever, he certainly would do whatever he liked or wanted.’
But Su Yue still couldn’t understand and so she pursed her lips. “I still can’t understand your logic.”
Why does someone have to bear the consequences? What consequences?
She stuffed her hands into her jacket and bent her head. She kicked the leaves, looking frustrated as a frown appeared on her face.
Jiao Chen gazed at her as he pressed his lips. He spoke gently. “It’s fine.”
A girl like her… what kind of mistake or blunder would she make that was unforgivable?
On the other hand… merely raising his voice at her seemed wrong.
“Are you going back to your dormitory?”
They strolled silently towards Jiao Chen’s dormitory. Su Yue suddenly raised her head and asked Jiao Chen.
Jiao Chen grunted in response.
The blood on the corners of his mouth had dried up. The bruises on his face were becoming more obvious, although it didn’t affect his appearance.
“Oh,” Su Yue answered and remained silent. Her footsteps trailed after Jiao Chen as she continued walking absentmindedly.
Jiao Chen opened his mouth several times to say something, but no words came out.
Finally, they reached a crossroads where they needed to split up. Jiao Chen stopped and glanced at Su Yue. “Do you want to take a look at our dormitory?” asked Jiao Chen.
Su Yue blinked her eyes and asked, “Can I?”
“I think…” Jiao Chen paused and hesitated before nodding. “It’s alright.”
He sounded certain.
“But the girls’ dormitory is out of bounds to guys.” Su Yue raised her eyebrows in doubt.
She wanted to say that likewise, girls might be forbidden to enter the guys’ dormitory.
Jiao Chen knew what she was saying and joked, “That’s why the guys are always on the losing end.”
“Errr…” This was the first time Jiao Chen had joked with her.
It was afternoon and the weather was perfect.
They stood at the crossroad and a breeze rustled the girl’s hair. The guy stretched his hand to tuck her hair behind her ears.
This scene would have stirred the hearts of everyone who witnessed it.
Every girl would have dreamt of having a handsome and gentle prince charming as her boyfriend.
And which guy wouldn’t have dreamt of having a beautiful and lovely princess as his girlfriend?
This princess and prince combination was too perfect. It was unbelievable that it had happened in real life.
But people also forgot about the fact that someone created that fairytales.
“I think I better not go. Can you go get changed and eat dinner with my Third Brother and Third sister-in-law tonight?”
Su Yue deliberated over his suggestion and concluded that going to the guys’ dormitory wasn’t a good idea. She couldn’t pinpoint the exact reason but she didn’t feel really comfortable with the idea.
Jiao Chen smiled and asked, “Do you seriously reckon I can go for dinner looking like this?”
“Erm…” Su Yue was at a loss of words momentarily before she realized that Jiao Chen was referring to his bruises. “What’s wrong with this? My third brother and third sister-in-law wouldn’t despise you.”
Obviously, he didn’t mean that he was afraid that they would despise him.
“Perhaps next time.” Jiao Chen softly suggested, “I’ll eat with them next time, all right?”
Su Yue nodded slowly as she pressed her lips. “Alright then.”
Jiao Chen broke into a smile and said, “Go and look for them.”
“Okay.” Su Yue nodded and glanced at Jiao Chen’s wounds. “Remember to use a hot towel to put on your bruises to reduce the swelling.”
