Watching Yun Bilu’s figure disappear as she ran downstairs, the dorm manager chuckled and walked towards the elevator, leaving the three roommates who were in a heated debate.
Meanwhile, Yun Bilu raced down the stairs instead of taking the elevator. When she saw Huang Yize holding an umbrella outside the door, she was thrilled yet worried.
Huang Yize waited in silence. Thinking about his family’s matters, he was rather solemn. When he noticed Yun Bilu, a gentle glint flashed across his eyes.
However, when he saw that Yun Bilu came from the corner of the lobby, he knew that she took the stairs. His face revealed a faint smile at this sudden realization.
Yun Bilu was panting as she stood in front of Huang Yize. “The dorm manager told me that you were looking for me.”
Huang Yize stared intently at Yun Bilu. His eyes shone brightly, revealing an alluring and intoxicating look. Without saying a single word, he reached out and tidied up Yun Bilu’s messy hair. He then asked, “Not sleeping yet?”
Yun Bilu shook her head. “I don’t sleep early. It’s only ten o’clock. I usually sleep at half past eleven.”
Huang Yize nodded. After giving it some thought, he said slowly, “Remember to sleep earlier in the future. Don’t sleep so late.”
Yun Bilu thought that Huang Yize seemed very strange today, but she couldn’t pinpoint exactly why he was acting like this. “Okay, I understand.”
“Don’t forget that you’re not allowed to leave the campus for a month. I know you can keep your promise.”
Yun Bilu pouted. Fine, it’s just a month . She could tolerate it.
“The weather will get colder after the rain. What you’re wearing is not enough.”
“Yes, I know. I was in a hurry that’s why I didn’t wear my jacket. Hmm? Huang Yize, why are you carrying a suitcase?” A thought suddenly struck Yun Bilu—was he leaving?
Huang Yize saw the curiosity in her eyes and said calmly, “Something happened at home, and I’m urgently needed, so I have to go back for a while. Don’t get into trouble when I’m not around.”
“I understand,” Yun Bilu answered instinctively. When she realized what she had just said, her eyes widened. “Huang Yize, I haven’t been getting into trouble at all, okay?”
Huang Yize didn’t try to argue with her. She was impulsive, and he had usually taken care and settled many things for her secretly. However, things would be beyond his control once he left.
“You have to learn to stay calm no matter what happens, alright?”
Hearing Huang Yize’s words, Yun Bilu felt uneasy. “Huang Yize, don’t say things like that. You sound so sad. It’s like you’re leaving me for good.”
Huang Yize caressed Yun Bilu’s head, fixing the stray strands of her hair. “Does someone like you know how it feels to be sad?”
Yun Bilu nodded and felt rather low-spirited “I definitely know.” Because of her family’s circumstances when she was young, she had learned to conceal her emotions and show only the sunny side of herself. She did it to avoid worrying her elder sister.
She had a lot of questions to ask him. When was he coming back? Where was his house?
As though he knew what Yun Bilu was thinking, Huang Yize said, “I’ll return right away after settling my family matters. I won’t drop out of school. In the meantime, I can’t tell you about my family’s matters. You’ll be in great danger if you know.”
Yun Bilu said boldly, “I’m not afraid even if it’s dangerous.”
“Still, I can’t let you know.”
“Hmm? Huang Yize, are you explaining yourself to me?” This was something that had never happened before even after knowing him for such a long time.
A distant glint flashed across Huang Yize’s eyes, and the corners of his lips turned up slightly. “If you think I’m explaining myself, then I might be!” Because of her, his somber mood brightened considerably. She never failed to surprise him with her unexpected antics.
