On the other end of the phone, Su Zhinian was completely silent.
Even though she knew he couldn't see her facial expression, Song Qingchun forced the corners of her lips to curve into a smile, At least it would make it easier to her to say what she needed to say next. "It was a truth or dare game with a friend of mine; she dared me to send an 'I love you' message to my three most recent contacts. You just happened to be the third, and you know the rest"
That was the best excuse she could come up with given the short notice. It would be able to conceal her real intention and resolve any awkwardness between them caused by those three words. Truly killing two birds with one stone.
Song Qingchun praised herself internally for her brilliance and continued to explain to Su Zhinian. "Even though it was against the rules of the game to give an explanation, the friend is now in the bathroom, and with this perfect opening, I had to call you to explain lest you misunderstood the message."
Song Qingchun concluded it with a sincere, "I'm sorry."
The other end of the phone continued to be silent for a long time before Su Zhinian's light voice said, "It's okay."
As if refusing to dwell on that message, before Song Qingchun could say anything, he continued without missing a beat, "Do you want me to come fetch you for the premier tonight?"
He bought my lie? Meaning we're still friends?
Song Qingchun should have felt happy, but her heart twisted with sourness. She tried to keep her voice light as she replied, "Okay, but I don't know where I will be later. I'll message you to give you my location when it's almost the time, okay?"
Song Qingchun was afraid that her real emotion might expose itself should the conversation continue any longer, so after she heard Su Zhinian's reply, she quickly said, "My friend's coming back, goodbye, I'll call you later."
Before Su Zhinian could say his own goodbye, Song Qingchun hung up. He stood by the window with the phone still pressed to his ear, listening to the dial tone.
Even though he could not respond in any way to her "I love you", when he found out it was merely a joke, like he had expected, hues of disappointment still colored his heart.
Actually, this should have been the development he wanted; she did not love him, and they could continue to be friends. He should not have been sad.
Even though he knew he should have felt glad, as Su Zhinian glanced out the window, endless sadness still filled up his eyes.
"Ah Nian? Ah Nian?" Auntie Su, who realized her son had been standing immobile before the window for a long time, finally called out to catch his attention.
Su Zhinian slowly recovered as he turned to look at his mother. Then, in a flustered manner, he put his hand down and returned his phone into his pocket.
Even though Su Zhinian didn't say much on the phone, Auntie Su had still managed to pick out the most important detail. "Do you want me to come fetch you for the premier tonight?"
When Su Zhinian sat down on the sofa beside his mother, Auntie Su asked with some anticipation, "Was that a girl on the phone with you?"
Su Zhinian nodded slightly before raising his phone to his face and mechanically deleted the message, "Where are you now?", that he typed earlier from the message box.
