Yun Bilu looked at Ding Maimai and thought that this was just a waste of time. She said, “Ding Maimai, why do you always mention your Ding family? Your family is not as influential as it used to be, but you’re still throwing your weight around. I’m not afraid of you, and I can really beat you up if you go on like this. You won’t be the school belle anymore then.”
“Yun Bilu, you’re just pestering Young Master Huang. He doesn’t belong to you, so stop clinging to him and keep your distance. He’s mine.”
Yun Bilu shook her head. “Ding Maimai, you’re out of your mind. You must’ve hit your head pretty badly, so I suggest you visit the hospital to check that brain of yours. So what if you’re the school belle? You think all the guys have a crush you? If you like Huang Yize, you should have confessed your love to him from the start. But you didn’t dare to pursue him, and instead, you chose to sneer at me and make fun of me. No one forced you to go home during that time. Also, he’s not just some object, okay? It’s up to him to choose who he belongs to. No one can decide for him.”
Yun Bilu paused. A sly glint flashed across her eyes, and she leaned closer to Ding Maimai. She whispered in her ear, “Ding Maimai, you already know that I’m Huang Yize’s girlfriend now. I’ve actually mentioned you to him before.”
“You’ve mentioned me to him? What did he say?”
“He said that you’re pretentious and a hypocrite. You’re just a pretty face who’s boring and only knows how to be jealous of others.” Of course, these were all lies spun by Yun Bilu. However, Ding Maimai would unquestionably believe all of it.
She was well aware that there were a lot of people who had a crush on Huang Yize. Nonetheless, she couldn’t possibly go around warning everyone that they couldn’t like him. All of them should live their own lives and not interfere with someone else’s—it was the right thing to do. That’s why she truly wanted to punch Ding Maimai with that attitude of hers.
“Did he really say that?” Ding Maimai was in apparent disbelief. Her eyes were brimming with tears.
Yun Bilu waited for her tears to fall, but after a while, Ding Maimai blinked them away.
Yun Bilu was shocked. “Ding Maimai, why aren’t you crying? You did great at controlling your tears.” It would have been a sight to behold to see her crying. After all, Ding Maimai was a beautiful lady, and she would enjoy watching her tear-streaked face. Of course, she would not admit that she had pulled a prank.
Ding Maimai tilted her head up and replied, “I won’t cry. My mum said that women should only cry in front of men who care, so they’ll feel sorry. If I were to cry in front of others, I’d get laughed at.”
Hearing her explanation, Yun Bilu thought carefully about it. She clapped her hands and said, “Those are pretty wise words. Does that mean that if the guy cares about you, he’ll feel bad when you cry?”
“Yeah, I think so.”
Yun Bilu patted Ding Maimai’s shoulders. “Thanks for telling me.” She would try this tactic on Huang Yize. However, she hadn’t cried in years. This was a skill that she had to practice first.
When Ding Maimai snapped out of her shock, Yun Bilu had already reached the dormitory building. She chased after her and yelled, “Yun Bilu, don’t be too full of yourself. I’ve seen a beautiful girl who came looking for Young Master Huang. He treated her really well. In fact, he treated her much better than you.”
Hearing those words, Yun Bilu paused in her steps. She turned her head and looked at Ding Maimai—the girl looked sincere and didn’t seem like she was lying. She immediately turned around and walked back. Putting her arm around Ding Maimai’s shoulders, she said, “My dear sister, tell me what happened, or I’ll smash your pretty face.”
Ding Maimai froze as her horrified face turned to Yun Bilu. “I… I don’t know exactly what happened. When classes just resumed after the holiday, there was this girl looking for Young Master Huang. She looked like she was our age. Anyway, she was very beautiful and stunning. Young Master Huang smiled so gently at her and was very attentive towards her… I was so jealous…”
