“Mrs.Xu. This title seems a bit nice, especially coming from Xu Yiyang’s mouth.”
Zheng Jiajia did not stay too long on the topic of whether to sleep or not. After all, in her opinion, sleeping with Xu Yiyang is similar to daydreaming.
Seeing Qiao Hui in a daze, Zheng Jiajia was sure that Qiao was thinking about something else, and wasn’t interested in Xu Yiyang at all. Feeling relieved and wanting to lighten up the mood, she said, “Not all men like green tea. What Lu Ting is, he is at most, some cheap young guy who has no brain.”
Hearing those words, Qiao Hui raised her delicate chin slightly. Her long black hair spread behind her like a piece of fine satin, and said, “Is there a man who can resist the attack of green tea?” She dares not let Lu Ting know that she had a flash marriage, let alone whom she had a flash marriage with.
She was afraid that Xu Yiyang would also be taken away by Lu Ting.
From a young age, Qiao Hui thought about the qualities she would want in a future spouse. She felt that her standards were not too high.
Before she turned 21, Qiao Hui had also imagined her future marriage. She would think, what kind of person would her future husband be? He doesn’t need to be handsome or tall but needs to be reliable enough to make her feel secure.
Cheating and infidelity is something she absolutely cannot tolerate. It’s a pity that her previous two relationships were cut short because the other party was cheating.
In all her ideas at that time, there was no possibility of marrying Xu Yiyang. It was too unrealistic. Even at this moment, after she has become Mrs.Xu, it still feels surreal.
Being married to her idol, Xu Yiyang, felt like an impossible dream. That’s right, she has always been Xu Yiyang’s little fan and has liked him for many years.
The media’s comment on Xu Yiyang’s “divine visuals/looks” 1[T/L Note-The media’s comment on Xu Yiyang’s “divine visuals/looks” did not just talk: meaning that XYY looks were worthy of being called “divine”] was not just talking. Xu Yiyang was very handsome on camera, but his real-life visuals were even more stunning. Not to mention, Xu Yiyang will gently smile at her.
When meeting a man like Xu Yiyang, it is hard not to feel uneasy.
So even if she had two failed relationships, Qiao Hui did not hesitate to marry Xu Yiyang.
Zheng Jiajia chewed the crispy crunchy potato chips and replied, “That is a given. Although scumbags are everywhere in this era and many fishes are like dogs, there are still good men. But I believe that somewhere out there, there’s true love in this world!”
Zheng Jiajia put down the potato chips pack, wiped her mouth, and said, “Today is my birthday. Let’s go shopping and then we can get dinner later.”
Qiao Hui nodded her head in response. She already gave Zheng Jiajia’s birthday gift to her last night at midnight, the gift was 888 yuan in a red envelope.
Qiao Hui and Zheng Jiajia came out from the female dormitory laughing. This should have been a leisurely morning, being that it was Saturday and there were no classes. Students can leisurely spend their weekends happily relaxing and being worry-free.
Until a young male voice stopped Qiao Hui.
Hearing the voice, Qiao Hui and Zheng Jiajia immediately knew who the voice belonged to. The young man was none other than Xia Ran.
He must have been deliberately waiting for Qiao Hui. As for Lu Ting, she seems to have left, probably went back to her dorm room.
Zheng Jiajia glanced at Qiao Hui and then at Xia Ran repeatedly, before quietly asking “What is that scum man doing here?
Qiao Hui shook her head, indicating that she didn’t know anything.
Xia Ran, with a sad expression, opened his mouth and asked, “Hui Hui, can I have a few words with you, alone?”
If it was before, Qiao Hui might have given Xia Ran this opportunity, but now she is married. She did not want to continue to be involved with her ex-boyfriend.
The lotus root 2[(藕断丝连) Ou duan si lian. In Chinese literature works, authors choose this idiom to describe a special relationship between two people, especially a man and a woman who still keeps in contact with each other after they break up. Lotus root is a root vegetable planted in the south of China. When this vegetable is cut, there will be some fibers connecting the cut pieces.] is not her style. If she couldn’t get along with her ex-boyfriend, what’s the difference with Lu Ting’s green tea?
So she said indifferently, “Jiajia is not an outsider, if you have anything to say, just say it. Also, we have already broken up. Please address me as Qiao Hui.”
Hearing Qiao Hui’s cold and indifferent words, Xia Ran smiled bitterly.
Xia Ran has red lips, white teeth, a well-proportioned body, is tall, and an air of youthfulness to him. This type of face is well-liked by many females.
From under his baseball cap, Xia Ran’s peach blossom eyes fixedly looked at Qiao Hui. His eyes were filled with too many complicated emotions, making them hard to be perceived clearly.
“Hui Hui, I’m sorry, and I do love you.”
But to Qiao Hui, those words were just an excuse. A cheap flimsy apology for a scumbag like Xia Ran to defend his wrongdoing. This made Qiao Hui feel more disappointed with him.
That’s because what Xia Ran said was quite misleading. He stated ‘love’ instead of ‘loved’, meaning that he still loves Qiao Hui.
Without giving any reaction to what Xia Ran said, Qiao Hui quickly dragged Zheng Jiajia away.
Xia Ran stood there until he wasn’t able to see their silhouettes anymore.
Zheng Jiajia opened her mouth several times to speak but wasn’t able to, so she finally decided to be quiet.
Zheng Jiajia felt that 9 out of 10 relationships end unhappily due to miscommunication. Feelings are hard to explain and can be often misinterpreted by the other party, very rarely can they be expressed in a way that doesn’t cause misunderstandings. She is just a bystander, so maybe she should just keep quiet.
It wasn’t until they reached Zhengxing Square that Qiao Hui stopped walking. Upon seeing the familiar face on the huge LED screen outside the mall, Qiao Hui felt calmer.
ZK’s advertisement featuring Xu Yiyang happened to be playing on the screen. Xu Yiyang is the spokesperson for ZK, a male clothing brand.
In the advertisement, Xu Yiyang wore a three-piece suit. The white shirt was completely buttoned up and the vest was form-fitting. Sitting on a stool, his two long legs were casually stretched and his right hand supported his chin. The pair of gold-rimmed eyeglasses on his face gave an inexplicable sense of forbidden desire.
People wanted to take off his suit slowly, piece by piece so they can see what his body looked like under the white shirt.
It happened that Zheng Jiajia also saw it too. Though she dare not bring up the topic of Xia Ran, bringing up the Film Emperor surely is a safe topic and it should liven up the tense atmosphere.
She looked up at the LED screen with a regretful expression, “Too bad Xu Yiyang endorses ZK. It would be nice if he endorses AK instead.”
