In their dorm room, Yun Bilu’s three roommates couldn’t help but feel sorry for her as they looked at her current state. She used to be very optimistic, but now, she looked as though she was troubled and depressed.
“Little Lulu, Young Master Huang would surely be heartbroken if he sees you like this.”
“That’s right, Little Lulu. Women should love themselves more so that others can love them too. Didn’t your elder sister say this too? Look at how miserable you are now.”
“You two have no idea. Little Lulu is suffering because she misses him. You need to understand how it feels to miss someone.”
“Little Lulu, how about we take you out for some fun? Let’s unwind and have a great time, okay?”
“Ahh! That’s a brilliant idea. I’m so excited! We hadn’t had such crazy fun in a long time.”
Yun Bilu raised her head and looked at her roommates. With a wave of her hand, she replied, “I’m not going. I have to meet the student union later, and I have classes after that.” During this period, she had been thinking about Huang Yize. He wouldn’t forbid her from stepping out of campus for no rhyme or reason. There must be something else that was going on.
Even though it was past a month already, she decided to remain on campus and wait patiently for his return.
He said that he would come back and he would definitely keep his word. Despite this, why was she feeling listless just because he wasn’t in school?
Xiao Huan looked at Yun Bilu. After a moment’s hesitation, she asked, “Bilu, I gave you Young Master Huang’s phone number the other day. Didn’t you call him? Why don’t you call him now?”
Yun Bilu got off her bed and stood up. Hugging her roommates, she said with a reassuring voice, “Thank you. Don’t worry about me. I’m okay. Besides, I’ve already called him, but his phone was turned off.” She had struggled with herself for a long time before making that phone call. In the end, the call didn’t go through. Only the heavens knew the feelings she felt inside during that time.
After that, she didn’t feel like calling him anymore. Calling the person she loved, only to hear that his phone was turned off was a terrible thing to experience. She felt disappointed and depressed.
“Ahh, Little Lulu, are you giving up just after one failed attempt? What kind of logic is this? It’s possible that he was doing something important, that’s why he turned his phone off.”
“Yeah, why are you giving up just like that? Where’s your pluck? It’s just a phone call. Didn’t you woo him for a very long time? Look at the both of you now. It just proves that with hard work and determination, you can achieve anything.”
“Little Lulu, this is unlike you. I miss the real you.”
Yun Bilu raised her voice. “Enough. If he had seen the notification, he’ll call me back. But he didn’t. That means he doesn’t want me to call him.”
“That’s not true. There are times that I don’t receive any missed call notifications after turning on my phone. You have to trust Young Master Huang. Think about it. Before he left, he came to see you and say goodbye, even when it was raining so heavily. He’s not that thoughtful to anyone else.”
“Yeah, he even took you out of the campus to have fun. Has he ever taken anyone out?”
“He’s already warm and gentle towards you. He even hugged you that night. Wow! Do you know how many people are dying of envy? Even my heart was racing when I saw it.”
Hearing her roommates’ encouraging words, Yun Bilu flashed a smile. She immediately bounced on her feet and pulled them towards her, kissing them on their cheeks. “Alright. I’ll call him again and see if I can get through.”
“As the saying goes, ‘absence makes the heart grow fonder.’ Both of you are so fond of each other, so it’s only natural that you miss each other very much. Hurry up. Let me listen to the call.”
Yun Bilu looked at the excited expressions on their faces. Grabbing her phone, she ran out of the room while saying, “I’ll go somewhere private to call him.”
After leaving the dormitory with her phone, Yun Bilu found an empty pavilion and sat down. She was both nervous and excited. Taking in a deep breath, she dialed his number.
