“Aaah —” The man’s scream resonated in the corridor, which reminded them of a pig being slaughtered.
Eyes bloodshot red, he bellowed, “You’re all dead! You worthless little shit! Do you know who I am? Do you know who my dad is?”
“Who cares!” Su Xiaomo ran up to him and beat him up all over again, then threatened him, “I’m your dad now!”
The man shielded his head with both hands and howled in pain. He couldn’t have looked sorrier.
Qi Yanxi watched her in astonishment. “Holy crap, Sis Mo… No, no, Bro Mo, you’re the man!”
He had never met a girl this tough in his life!
Su Xiaomo tossed back her hair and asked, “Why are you here?”
“Hanging out with my friend, what do you think?” Qi Yanxi replied. He then noticed Mu Li in her disheveled clothes and frowned.
Mu Li stood there with her head bowed, wringing her hands. Apparently, she was quite scared of him.
“What happened? Mu Li, I almost didn’t recognize you with that dress on.”
Mu Li was on the verge of breaking into tears at those words.
It wasn’t just today that he had failed to recognize her; he had never noticed her…
She had chosen to change just for him and had stopped dressing like an ugly duckling. However, he still couldn’t see her.
To him, she was nothing but a passer-by.
“I’m still on shift. I need to go back to work now…” Mu Li said in a tiny voice before fleeing the scene.
Su Xiaomo pursed her lips and was headed back to the room when she halted abruptly.
The teenager that had occupied her mind was slowly walking toward her.
Su Xiaomo was dumbfounded.
Shit. From where he was standing, He Jiayu must have seen her beating up that guy!
Not only had she been violent and spewed curses, she had also ordered the man to call her “dad”…
Damn it, why did it feel so humiliating all of a sudden?
“Are you hurt?” He Jiayu asked gently.
Su Xiaomo shook her head embarrassedly. All she wanted to do now was to dig a hole and bury herself in it.
He liked demure and caring girls, but she had just shown him how violent she was…
Lowering her head in disappointment, she was surprised when He Jiayu picked up her hand. “You’re wounded…”
Her hand was grazed and a little bit of blood was oozing out.
Su Xiaomo drew back her hand immediately, as if she had been electrocuted. She then forced a smile. “Don’t worry about it. I get nicks like this all the time. I’m going back to our room now. See you there!”
She promptly ran back and failed to notice the concerned look in He Jiayu’s eyes.
Back in the room.
An Xiaxia sat by the karaoke machine for a very long time until she finally found the song she liked.
It was Fish Leong’s “Restful Summer.”
“Sheng Yize, can you sing this one?” she asked with twinkling eyes.
Sheng Yize frowned a little. “That’s a girl’s song…”
“Teehee, so can you sing it or not?”
Of course he could, but wouldn’t it sound weird from a man?
However… An Xiaxia had that expectant look on her face and the light in her clear and bright eyes was something he couldn’t say no to.
Fine, he would sing it. As long as she was happy.
He picked up the microphone and the whole room quieted down. Everyone waited to hear his voice.
As the music rang out, Sheng Yize’s phone also began to vibrate at the same time.
He had a look at the screen and his face darkened. He then picked it up.
The person on the other end hung up after a single sentence. He looked confused for a split second before he put the phone down.
“Sorry, Xiaxia.” Those were the last words he said to her that night.
