Wen Xuxu was shocked for a moment before she turned around joyfully. "Zhou Shuang!"
The girl was wearing an orange chiffon sweater and had a bob hairstyle. She spread her arms wide and hugged her. "Wen Xuxu, it's been so long!"
"It really has." Wen Xuxu returned the hug.
After lunch and an afternoon of shopping, they both began feeling closer to each other once again.
Thanks to the Yan family, she had attended prestigious schools ever since she was a child. Her classmates were either the children of high-ranking officials or rich entrepreneurs.
Zhou Shuang's mother was a diplomat and her father was a businessman. Both of them were stationed overseas.
She was an only child and had spent her whole life not knowing what the word 'thrifty' meant.
She dragged Xuxu to all the luxury brands in town.
Bags, shoes, and clothes.
"Xuxu, what do you think of this bag?"
They passed by Hermes and Zhou Shuang spotted a pink bag at the display window. She pulled at Wen Xuxu excitedly.
"It's quite nice." Wen Xuxu nodded at first before she saw the bag's brand. Her mouth twitched involuntarily.
Fortunately, she knew what Zhou Shuang was like. If not, she would have thought that her friend was bringing her to these expensive stores to provoke her on purpose.
She couldn't see herself buying any of the items in this mall.
It's not that she couldn't afford them; she just couldn't bear to buy them, and she wouldn't let herself buy them.
The price of the cheapest pair of shoes was equivalent to half of her monthly salary at Flourish & Prosper. She had worked for merely a year and her savings were limited. Not to mention that she was jobless now.
Even if the item's cost was only in the hundreds, she would still need to consider it before buying something.
After she got Xuxu's approval, Zhou Shuang put her hand around hers and dragged her towards Hermes. "Come on, let's take a look inside."
Xuxu could tell from her expression that she was determined to get it.
She felt that as her friend, she was obliged to stop her from squandering her money whenever it was appropriate. "Shuang, let's go, I'm famished."
She pouted and touched her belly. They had shopped for hours after lunch and it was getting dark.
"I'll just take a look." Zhou Shuang was adamant about entering the shop.
Wen Xuxu didn't retreat and ended up following her inside. She scolded her as they walked. "Why didn't you buy it when you were overseas? You came back here to splurge instead. The money saved from the tax refund, are you afraid it will attack your wallet?"
Zhou Shuang turned around and hugged her waist, behaving like a spoiled child. "But you weren't there to accompany me when I was overseas."
Wen Xuxu calmly gave a knock to her head. "So mushy."
A pretty salesgirl welcomed them the second they stepped in. She was wearing an outfit from the brand's current season.
The salesgirl swiftly surveyed Zhou Shuang and Wen Xuxu and she decided to focus her attention on Zhou Shuang.
She smiled and nodded. "Miss, please feel free to browse around. Most of our designs are from the current season."
Wen Xuxu didn't want to buy anything so naturally, she didn't feel like browsing. She was not only hungry but exhausted too.
"Let me hold it, you take your time."
She stretched her hands out to hold Zhou Shuang's shopping bags and then walked towards the white leather couch inside the store.
"This bag looks really pretty."
Xuxu had just sat down when she heard a familiar voice at the entrance.
She automatically turned her head and saw a tall and pretty lady walking in. She wore a sexy red floral slip dress which ended above her knees.
She had a pair of long and attractive legs which even girls couldn't help wanting to pinch.
She was with a man wearing a blue shirt. Looks-wise, she was like a fresh flower which was stuck on a heap of cow dung.
But if it comes to who had a fatter wallet, that was an entirely different story.
