Kang Jian: “Repeat after me six times… seven times…”
An Xiaxia: “… Eight times… nine times…”
The judges and those that were here for the rehearsal all goggled at them as if they were a pair of monkeys in the zoo.
“Gosh, I’m cracking up here! Are they here to show that they can count?”
“Hahahaha! I’ve taken their video and I’m posting it on Weibo now. By the way, anyone wants to become mutual followers with me?”
“Get down from there!”
Despite the wild jeers, the two managed to make it to “38 times.”
At that desperate moment, fortune finally decided not to abandon Kang Jian completely and he remembered his words, saving them both.
They bowed at the end of their performance and came off the stage feeling utterly defeated. They then eyed the judges eagerly.
The corners of the judges’ mouths were twitching as they exchanged knowing looks. In the end, the man in charge forced a smile and said, “Well… That was quite a unique performance! Hohoho… However, the style isn’t really suitable for our gala this time. After all, Qixia is a renowned high school with a lot of talented people…”
The implication was: Unsuitable? It was an insult to the intelligence of the audience!
Kang Jian lowered his head disappointedly and was certain that he had been eliminated.
Sob … He had given Sheng Yize so many of Xiaxia’s childhood photos!
An Xiaxia couldn’t have felt more frustrated. Listening to all the mocking laughter around them, she wished she could dig a hole in the ground and bury herself…
Someone suddenly called out in surprise a short distance away, “Wow, Starry Night is here to rehearse!”
An Xiaxia almost had a heart attack. She looked at the entrance in astonishment and saw that it was indeed Sheng Yize and the other two. From the looks of it, they had been here a while.
No, they hadn’t seen her performance with Kang Jian, had they?
No, no, no! That wasn’t possible! That couldn’t be! An Xiaxia clenched her little fists and tried to talk herself into believing that.
However, Sheng Yize went up to her and said casually, “Good math work.”
You have received a critical hit from player [Sheng Yize]!
She buried her face in her hands and played dead.
The smile on Sheng Yize’s face was almost undetectable when he thanked Kang Jian. “I got the photos. Thanks.”
“You’re welcome,” Kang Jian said dejectedly. “Are you going to perform?”
Sheng Yize rubbed An Xiaxia’s hair. “Wait here. We’ll go home together after we’re done.”
They had kept their voices quite low, but the curious onlookers were still talking among themselves.
“Wow, who is that girl and what’s her relationship with Captain Yize?”
“You don’t know? Remember that whole Christmas ball incident? She was the heroine of that gossip — the girl both Captain Yize and Devil Qi Yanxi stood up for~”
“Holy shit! Seriously?!”
Instantly, judgemental looks turned An Xiaxia’s way one after another.
An Xiaxia felt as if a thousand arrows had hit her in the back and she was drowning in the malice…
“Don’t be afraid,” said Sheng Yize, patting her little head. “I’m here for you.”
As long as he was around, he would allow no one to harm An Xiaxia!
An Xiaxia’s face lit up. She blinked and nodded affirmatively, then sat down among the audience with Kang Jian.
Those around them stared at her in surprise.
An Xiaxia clenched her little fists. She would stop playing An Xiaxia the ostrich. Be it the ten thousand people that stood between them or the lies and slanders, she would face them all herself!
She was Sheng Yize’s girlfriend!
It wasn’t a crime and there was nothing wrong with it!
She knew Sheng Yize would be at her side no matter what difficultes lay ahead!
She was no longer afraid!
