Yun Bilu looked at Bai Yaoyao, who was squinting her eyes to scan her, and glanced down to see her pajamas, which was too big for her. From her point of view, she could see everything clearly.
She grinned. “Elder Sister Yaoyao, if you look at me that way, I’d think that you’ve fallen in love with me!”
“What if I did? Will you be able to abandon your boyfriend and go with me?” Bai Yaoyao joked.
“Ah, no, no. Elder Sister Yaoyao, I’m just kidding.”
Bai Yaoyao lightly flicked Yun Bilu’s forehead. “You’re really a person who forgets about your elder sister once you found a guy. I know that you can’t bear to leave him!”
“Elder Sister Yaoyao is very important to me too.”
“Don’t try to flatter me. Have you washed up yet? Look at your eyes. Wipe them a little.” After saying this, Bai Yaoyao used her fingers to remove the dirt from the corners of Yun Bilu’s eyes.
Yun Bilu rubbed her eyes and went to the bathroom to wash up. When she was done, she continued to chat with Bai Yaoyao.
Huang Yize’s voice came from downstairs. “Since you’re awake, come down and eat!”
Hearing Huang Yize’s voice, Yun Bilu replied right away. “Ah, yes. We’re coming.”
Tugging Bai Yaoyao by the arm as they both went downstairs, she said, “Elder Sister Yaoyao, he’s pretty good at cooking. You’ll get to try it later.”
Yun Bilu’s words reminded her of Xirong Ziye, and her heart started aching. When they were still in university, Ziye would cook for himself and wash his own clothes. There was almost nothing he couldn’t do.
But ever since he became the president, he no longer cooked.
After eating, Huang Yize discussed with the two. He would make a request for the classes to end early and make an exception for the autumn break. That way, Yun Bilu and Bai Yaoyao would be able to return to Ning An City together.
Yun Bilu said in a worried voice, “If Elder Sister Yaoyao continued to stay here in Country E, would she be discovered by Xirong Ziye?”
“Don’t worry. He won’t be able to find her here.” In other words, what Huang Yize meant was that no one would dare to barge into his villa. Although Xirong Ziye was pretty high up in position, his presidency was still not secured. That was why he wouldn’t dare to make any big moves against them right now.
Yun Bilu originally wanted to submit her absence to keep Bai Yaoyao company, but the latter insisted that she wanted to be alone. She was being considerate to Yun Bilu since she knew that her studies were more important.
The final decision was that Bai Yaoyao would temporarily stay there while Huang Yize would send Yun Bilu off to school.
Before leaving, Yun Bilu passed a new cell phone to Bai Yaoyao. “Elder Sister Yaoyao, this is a new cell phone I bought for you. The number is new as well. I’m sure that my elder sister misses you too, so feel free to call her.”
“Don’t worry. Just focus on your studies, alright? You don’t have to worry about me.”
After Yun Bilu and Huang Yize left, the smile gradually disappeared from Bai Yaoyao’s face. She abruptly sat down on the sofa and stared at the cell phone in a daze. She couldn’t help but wonder what Xirong Ziye was doing right now. She knew that she shouldn’t think about him, but she still did.
The more she thought about him, the more her heart ached. Leaning against the sofa, Bai Yaoyao curled up into a ball as she started sobbing. The more she sobbed, the more unbearable it felt. She wanted her tears to take away her sorrow and pain.
She felt miserable beyond measure. Crying was actually a way of easing her pain. After crying her heart out, Bai Yaoyao wiped her tears and washed up. Seeing her frail form in front of the mirror, she laughed self-deprecatingly.
She missed her closest friend, Yun Bixue. When a person was at their lowest, they tend to think about their closest people.
After a moment’s consideration, she took a deep breath and composed herself. With a smile, she finally called Yun Bixue.
