Xuxu walked to Su Yue and bent her head. “Yueyue, what’s on your mind? Are you going to look for Bai Jing today?”
Su Yue pouted and appeared troubled. There was a frown on her face. “Tomorrow, I need to choose my university.”
So, that matter had troubled her! Xuxu sat beside her and flashed a warm smile. “What do you have in mind?”
Su Yue replied, “I want to go to the same school as Bai Jing. She is my only friend in the capital city, and I’m her only friend as well.”
She began to fiddle with her fingers as she spoke.
Xuxu gently prodded on, “Silly girl. Are you thinking of going to A University just because of this reason?”
This girl doesn’t even bother to make friends. But once she made a friend, she would do anything for her within her means.
Su Yue sighed. “I know I won’t be able to get in. If not, I wouldn’t be so worried.”
She slumped back against the couch as she stared at the ceiling.
Xuxu smiled at the worried look on Su Yue’s face. She raised her eyebrows and asked, “You really want to go to A University?”
Su Yue knew that Xuxu must have a way to help her.
Her face lit up, and she sat upright and nodded her head ferociously. “Yes, Bai Jing wants to go to A University and so do I. I’ve just called her and she has confirmed it with me.”
Xuxu replied, “Then you should apply for an Arts course in A University. It’s still within the same campus.”
Su Yue only had A University on her mind, and she doesn’t care about anything else as long as she could enter that school. She stretched her hand and eagerly tugged at Xuxu. “Really?”
“Yup,” Xuxu added on, looking more solemn. “Anyway, we’re not counting on you to learn anything useful.”
“Great! Thank you, Third sister-in-law!” Su Yue hugged Xuxu tightly. “I want to accompany you to work today.”
Xuxu frowned. “Shouldn’t you be changing your clothes?”
Su Yue sprinted to her room and came down shortly. She wore a light green dress, which Xuxu had bought for her recently, that ended at her knees.
She slung a small bag over her shoulder. As she trod on, her footsteps were light-hearted.
She radiated with positivity from top to toe.
Xuxu quietly gazed at Su Yue and subconsciously, her gaze traveled to Wang Daqin’s portrait. Her eyes glistened, and she bit her lips.
Su Yue wound her arm around hers. “Let’s go.”
“Okay.” Xuxu turned around and stole another glance at Wang Daqin’s portrait before leaving.
After their university application, they received their results on the third day.
Su Yue became despondent after receiving her results.
She lay collapsed on her bed and laid motionless.
Xuxu knocked on her door, but she didn’t respond.
“What’s wrong? Did you score a basket of eggs?” She knew that Su Yue must be unhappy with her results and she teased her. “If you did, then I’ll ask Aunt Zhang to cook eggs tonight.”
She then bent to sit beside Su Yue.
Su Yue didn’t move nor spoke a word.
Xuxu didn’t talk to her anymore. She went back to her room to grab her phone in case there were urgent work matters.
She turned on her camera and took a photo of Su Yue. She updated her WeChat.
‘Come to my place for eggs tonight. A girl brought back a basket of eggs from her examinations.’
After updating, she slapped Su Yue hard on her buttocks. “Go look at your WeChat.”
