Walking out of the internet cafe, Sheng Yize marched forward while An Xiaxia stood still with her head lowered.
He frowned. “What are you doing there? Let’s go home.”
An Xiaxia felt a warmth well up her chest. It felt so nice to be cared for and looked after.
She pressed the tips of her index fingers together and murmured, “I have to fetch my bag… I need to go back to school first.”
Sheng Yize gave it some thought. “I’ll go with you.”
An Xiaxia was still hesitating when Su Xiaomo dashed toward her, dragging Kang Jian behind her. “Xiaxia, did you win?”
“I did.” An Xiaxia nodded.
“Haha, I knew it! That’s why Kang Jian and I bought you duck neck to celebrate!” She stuffed a box of duck neck into An Xiaxia’s hands while Kang Jian complained, “I said I was going to watch my Xiaxia Wifey’s game, why did you take me to buy duck neck?”
“Shut up, you idiot!” Su Xiaomo mercilessly kicked his ass.
Sheng Yize frowned a little, finding Kang Jian’s “Xiaxia Wifey” quite irritating.
How was An Xiaxia his wife?
Su Xiaomo finished beating up Kang Jian, then passed An Xiaxia her school bag. “There, I fetched it for you. Shall we take the bus back home together?”
“Sure,” An Xiaxia replied, then remembered she had left Sheng Yize behind.
She turned around and forced a smile. “Um, we’re leaving…”
Su Xiaomo and Kang Jian had walked a little distance away by now, leaving An Xiaxia and Sheng Yize staring at each other on the spot.
Sheng Yize asked like a tsundere, “Why aren’t you going with me?”
He had no idea where that question came from. He simply knew he was very, very unhappy about not going home together with An Xiaxia!
An Xiaxia was taken aback. Her eyes then shifted to the luxurious Porsche a distance away and the look on her face was a little hurt.
They were from different worlds. Even if their relationship had eased, there was no way they could be together, right?
“It’ll look bad for you if someone steals a picture of us together. I’m off. Bye bye.” An Xiaxia held her school bag in her arms and ran after Su Xiaomo and Kang Jian.
“An Xiaxia, you stop right there!” Sheng Yize ordered in a low voice, and An Xiaxia turned around in bewilderment.
He chose his words carefully and gave an alluring proposition. “Do you want to become a crew member or not?”
An Xiaxia bit her finger and nodded spinelessly.
She really wanted to go! Really, really wanted! She could see Rong Che oppa there, the person she had liked for many years!
Sheng Yize broke into laughter. He looked so attractive that An Xiaxia stood there dazed.
His thin lips moved. “And I helped you take Snowy away last time. Didn’t you make the promise then to do whatever I asked?”
An Xiaxia nodded, looking like a little fool.
“Good…” He sounded as if he had made a decision and gave An Xiaxia his hand. “Now, take my hand and come with me.”
“To where?” An Xiaxia asked dumbly.
“Didn’t you say you’ll do anything?” Sheng Yize retorted. “So, why ask?”
An Xiaxia rubbed her head. That sounded reasonable.
She gently put her hand on Sheng Yize’s palm and his big hand immediately wrapped around hers.
“I’ll take you into the crew and you’ll have to keep me company on my way home every day. Remember?” Our scheming fellow guided her gently.
An Xiaxia blinked and nodded firmly!
“Of course. Then you must promise me to take me there!”
Sheng Yize smiled mildly and said gently, “Sure.”
