Chapter 148: There's no such thing as a free lunch
Translator: eunimon_ Editor: Caron_
The next morning:
Before heading to class, Ye Wanwan stopped by her dorm.
Even before she took out her keys, the door was pulled open, "Wanwan, you're back!"
Jiang Yan Ran stood by the door cheerfully; she probably heard Ye Wanwan's footsteps.
Ye Wanwan was used to living alone so having the door opened for her all of a sudden gave her a shock.
"Yeah! C'mon, tell me, how was the date last night?" Ye Wanwan couldn't wait to find out.
Jiang Yan Ran hesitated before replying, "I told Chu Feng the truth already."
Ye Wanwan was taken aback, "Huh? What did you tell him?"
"I told him that it was your idea to ask him out and initially, I more or less wanted to use him to provoke Song Zi Hang but in the end, I couldn't go through with it so I told him everything. With my current condition, I really can't dive into another relationship so fast and this wasn't fair to him." Jiang Yan Ran answered.
"All right..." Ye Wanwan sighed.
With Jiang Yan Ran's character, she roughly guessed that this would happen; she didn't have high hopes that they'd get together so quickly anyway.
"That's okay, the two of you can still be friends. Chu Feng's a nice guy, you don't have to worry," Ye Wanwan consoled her.
"Yeah," Jiang Yan Ran nodded and said, "Oh, right, my dad called me last night and said that they gave the excuse that their finances had some issues so they weren't able to transfer money over to the Songs. At the same time, they already secretly withdrew the funds from their collaborative projects. The Songs weren't suspicious at all."
Ye Wanwan laughed, "There's no problem if Uncle Jiang handles things--you can stop worrying! Come on, let's go eat!"
The two of them spoke while packing their books and went downstairs.
Just as they were about to enter the canteen to eat, they bumped into someone who made their stomachs turn.
Song Zi Hang held soy milk and steamed dumplings in his hands as he blocked the path of the two of them suddenly. The unrelenting smile on his handsome face was very clear. He looked at Jiang Yan Ran and said, "Yan Ran, you haven't had your breakfast, right? I bought it for you--you love the soy milk and steamed dumplings from Xiang Man restaurant, don't you?"
Ye Wanwan raised her brows when she saw this. Tsk, there's no such thing as a free lunch...
He's probably doing this because the Song family felt uneasy so they gave him a warning.
Don't they know it's too late now?
Upon seeing Song Zi Hang's surprisingly gentle expression, Jiang Yan Ran was put into a trance but very quickly, she turned cold, "No, I don't. Their soy milk has a fishy smell and their steamed dumplings aren't good. Shen Meng Qi's the one who likes them."
Song Zi Hang froze, "Oh... *cough*, is it now? I bought them for you once and I remember clearly that you said you like them!"
Jiang Yan Ran sneered in her heart. That was only because you bought breakfast for me on that rare occasion--how could I say that I didn't like it ?
Thinking back, he bought a lot of food that time and even asked her to share with the people in her dorm.
It was obvious that he bought them specifically for Shen Meng Qi!
These two hooked up much earlier than I thought and even did it right in front of me!
"But I've already bought them! It's such a waste if you don't eat them, just take them!" Song Zi Hang then shoved the breakfast into her hands.
Ye Wanwan was speechless as she watched from the side. This is so insincere--is he really trying to make things up to her? Does he think she's a garbage can? Or does he think that everybody's as stupid as he is?
