Jiao Chen smiled. “I’m surprised that you know this.”
Su Yue pressed her lips together. “I’ll make a move.”
She waved at him and turned around, walking in the direction they came from.
Jiao Chen stared at her retreating figure, lost in thought. He didn’t retract his gaze until she was far away.
A gust of wind brought him back to reality. He sighed.
Turning around, he walked in the opposite direction.
Xuxu and Yan Rusheng watched Su Yue and Jiao Chen walk past them. Su Yue’s gaze never left Jiao Chen.
She didn’t realize they were there even when they walked past them.
Neither did they call out to her.
“Let’s go. This lass treats us like air now that she’s dating.” Xuxu sighed, hugging his elbow and preparing to head back to the basketball court.
They had to bid goodbye to the school leaders before leaving.
Yan Rusheng looked down at Xuxu and raised his eyebrow. “Jealous?”
“Yes.” Xuxu nodded. “I do feel a little sour.”
Yueyue said that she loved her third sister-in-law the most and always clung onto her. But now… sigh!
Indeed, a grown girl had to leave the family one day.
No wonder Grandfather always complained that she was unfilial.
The more she thought about it, the more it rang true. Before she started dating Yan Rusheng, though she worked from dawn to dusk, she could see her grandfather every day.
But since she got together with Yan Rusheng, she could count the number of times she met her grandfather within the past quarter of the year with her fingers.
And now that she had children, she didn’t have enough time to spare.
To be frank, her grandfather didn’t even cross her mind when work swarmed her for days.
“Third Brother, third sister-in-law.”
They heard a familiar voice.
Xuxu looked over and smiled. “Bai Jing, how have you and Yueyue been? How do you find the dormitory?”
Bai Jing was walking down the steps as she approached them.
She looked clean and fresh, with her ponytail tied up neatly.
“It’s not too bad,” Bai Jing replied, nodding. She stopped before them.
Xuxu looked at her and smiled sincerely. “Remember to come over with Yueyue when you’re free.”
Bai Jing nodded and agreed.
Then she looked around and asked in confusion, “Where’s Su Yue?”
Xuxu replied, “She left with Jiao Chen.”
Then Bai Jing suddenly smiled in a particular direction. “Su Yue is here.”
Xuxu turned to look. Su Yue tucked her pockets in her sweater, her head bowed as she walked on the pavement and kicked the floor.
She was obviously deep in thought.
When she got closer, Xuxu asked her mockingly, “Didn’t you leave with your Jiaojiao?”
Su Yue pursed her lips and replied, “He went back to the dormitory for a nap. He asked me to go, but I didn’t.”
Young Master Yan became agitated when he heard it. “What? That fellow asked you to sleep in his dormitory?”
In broad daylight?!
Xuxu was speechless.
As expected, his mind was in the gutter. His mind was filled with inappropriate things, and he perceived others to think like him.
It was enough!
“He asked me over to hang out,” Su Yue explained, frowning. She looked contemptuously at Yan Rusheng and said, “Third Brother, what did you think? Jiaojiao is nothing like you.”
Xuxu couldn’t hold in her laughter.
She wanted to like Su Yue’s comment a million times over.
But of course, she couldn’t show it. If she were to challenge Yan Rusheng now that her confinement was over, there would be ‘dreadful’ consequences.
