Sheng Yize replied calmly yet firmly. An Yibei looked surprised.
He seemed to have underestimated Sheng Yize’s feelings for An Xiaxia all this time.
He smiled after giving Sheng Yize an indecipherable look, which wasn’t as mocking this time. “I hope you’re a man of your word.”
“Thank you for telling me all this.” Sheng Yize bowed to An Yibei, rose to his feet, and left.
He stopped when he walked past An Xiaxia’s bedroom. After some hesitation, he pushed the door open and walked in.
An Xiaxia had probably exhausted herself from all the crying. After a little groan, she fell asleep again.
Under the dim lamp light, he could see tears on her fair and delicate face.
Wiping her tears away, Sheng Yize murmured, “Sleep tight. Good night.”
I wish for all your dreams to be free of distress from now on.
And I wish for you to live every day in happiness.
The next day.
An Xiaxia got up with eyes still half-closed and went to school.
When she got there, she found everyone talking fervently.
“What’s new?” An Xiaxia yawned and asked Kang Jian.
Kang Jian raised his eyebrows. “Each class is going to have a training camp — in other words, a spring outing! Of course everyone is excited! We’re going to have a group activity!”
“Aaah! That’s great!”
However, Bai Ziyue poured cold water on their enthusiasm a moment later. During the class meeting session, she announced regretfully, “The school lacks funds this year, so going into the mountains is probably off the menu. It’s likely that our camp will take place in a park…”
The classroom erupted and everyone howled.
“Miss, parks are so boring!”
“Isn’t Qixia an elite school? How can we be lacking funds?”
“You know nothing. Camping trips are very costly!”
Bai Ziyue waved her hand frustratedly. “Alright, alright. Stop yelling. I’ll go talk to the principal again, alright?”
Only then did the students quiet down.
That night, Sheng Yize took An Xiaxia to a famous restaurant in Yu City. He cut up the steak for An Xiaxia and put the plate in front of her.
An Xiaxia ate her food, looking rather blue. Sheng Yize couldn’t help but tease her, “You’re not still upset about the camping trip, are you?”
“I’ve never been on a camping trip before…” An Xiaxia pouted. Just then, a waiter came over and whispered something to Sheng Yize. He frowned and took An Xiaxia’s hand. “Mr. Song is here as well. Let’s go say hello to him.”
After all, Mr. Song was an important figure in the business world and they should greet him for the sake of politeness.
The waiter led the two of them to a private room, which was the room with the best view. Mr. Song sat there alone with a table full of dairy dishes.
“Good evening, Uncle Song.” Sheng Yize nodded at him and An Xiaxia followed suit. “Hello, Uncle.”
Mr. Song’s eyes lit up for a second when he saw An Xiaxia, but the look on his face turned indecipherable in the next moment.
“Do you want to join me?” he kindly offered.
“Thank you, but I’m afraid not. She’s in a bad mood and I’m still trying to cheer her up.” Sheng Yize smiled in resignation.
Mr. Song was intrigued. “Why is that?”
“Because our school won’t take us camping…” An Xiaxia said sulkily. Sheng Yize flicked her forehead with a finger and she realized she was being inappropriate. She immediately put her hands over her mouth.
Mr. Song watched her adorable reaction with a gentle look on his face. “So, you’ll cheer up if you can go camping?”
Why was this Mr. Song… so weird…
Sheng Yize left with An Xiaxia after exchanging some pleasantries.
The next day, An Xiaxia heard the big news as soon as she got to school.
The Song Group had sponsored camping trips for the entire school!
