But he soon heard Ye Jinwen deny it. “That’s not right. Lu Mian is staying in the apartment next door, but she’s borrowing a pair of chopsticks. That means that the apartment is not often inhabited, so it should not be the Lu Family’s assets. So there’s a high chance it’s…”
Xiao Qimo listened to him continue silently.
“Maybe Lu Mian is in a relationship! This apartment is the love nest that her boyfriend has bought! Wow, what kind of man can conquer a cool girl like Lu Mian?”
“But she only borrowed a pair of chopsticks, are they feeding each other?”
As Ye Jinwen’s imagination ran wild, Xiao Qimo’s face turned darker.
“I think you’re begging to be dragged back to Capital Jin!”
Xiao Qimo said somberly in his deep voice as he set the chopsticks down on his plate. The crisp sound of the chopstick made Ye Jinwen jump.
The table of MM Stall food before them no longer seemed appetizing.
That was the one thing Ye Jinwen was most afraid of hearing. He had escaped to Wu City and was unwilling to return to Capital Jin, so he began begging for mercy.
But he thought about it and decided to keep quiet.
After a few bites of rice, in the last corner of her lunchbox was a tiny hamburger.
She picked it up contentedly.
Everyone had their likes and obsessions. For Lu Mian, it was burgers.
They seemed unhealthy, but she liked it. Besides, she was skinny, so she did not have to worry about getting fat.
As for her obsession, it was earning money.
Even during her lunch time, she took her phone out to check on the stock market and to look for other ways to earn money.
A bunch of notifications appeared on her phone.
She looked through each one before deleting them.
A call labelled as “Lu Family” appeared on the screen suddenly.
It was from her mother, Fu Man.
She set her phone on silent and continued eating, not intending to take the call.
When she was done eating and had cleaned up, she took another look at her phone. There were three missed calls and a text message.
She took a look at the message.
“Your dad is returning home tonight. Come back home earlier after school.”
She put her phone away impassively and left for school with her schoolbag.
Time passed quickly in the afternoon. Just as she was about to leave the classroom after class was dismissed, she got another phone call.
After she hung up, she grabbed her bag and headed towards the twelfth grade section.
Since it was during dismissal, there were a lot of students around.
There was a commotion everywhere she walked by, and there were many curious gazes.
“Wow, she’s so pretty! What year and class is she from?”
“Why didn’t we know that there was such a beauty in our school before! It’s like she’s a comic character. She’s like Ling Boli, the super pretty, cool and formidable girl!”
Lu Mian was the kind of person that would catch everyone’s eye in the crowd.
She was tall, fair and pretty. She also had an outstanding aura, so it was normal for her to cause such a commotion.
But Lu Mian’s cold vibes kept everyone at bay.
It was cold, unorthodox and untamed.
Everyone could only watch and discuss from afar.
“Say, the logo on her uniform is the tenth grade logo. The new students seem great this year. I think we have a new school belle!”
“Tenth grade? I’m really looking forward to the new students’ orientation ceremony now. Will the pretty junior give a speech?”
“Forget about it. Tomorrow is the twelfth-graders’ pep rally, you won’t have the chance to go look at the new students. You might as well look forward to Lu Xinnuan’s speech…”
Lu Mian passed by many twelfth grade classrooms before she arrived at the door of twelfth grade class one.
“Wow, a pretty girl!” Someone in the class exclaimed.
Lu Xinnuan followed the exclamation and looked outside.
Her hands froze and her heart skipped a beat.
Lu Mian’s not here for me, right…
