Chapter 35: Taken Care of (1)
Gu Siyi waved back to him as Xia Zhijun began to head down the dorm stairs. As he turned to leave, she remembered the box of chocolates she left in her bag.
“Wait!” She shouted prompting him to turn around
“This is all for you,” said Gu Siyi as she threw the bag to him.
Xia Zhijun glanced at the bag as he caught it effortlessly. “Help me eat it again. I’ll ask you when I want to have it.”
“…” Gu Siyi stared at the back of her colleague, aren’t you too lazy?
When Gu Siyi returned to her bedroom, Zheng Peipei was lying on the bed talking on the phone, while Lan Xiaoqiu was studying at the desk, perhaps because of the noise, she was wearing a headset. Xu Lin went out to study on her own, but she hadn’t come back yet.
Noticing Gu Siyi entered the room, Zheng Peipei quickly ended the call, stood up, and asked her. “Why did you go alone? You came back so late.”
“I found a quiet place to study at.” Gu Siyi stalled.
“Take me with you next time, it’s boring to stay by myself.”
Gu Siyi nodded. She had a guilty conscience and decided not to speak out.
“I can only play with you in our dormitory, others do not have the same vibe, and it’s boring.”
“…” Gu Siyi looked at Lan Xiaoqiu, who was immersed in studying.
Zheng Peipei stared maliciously at the girl in front of her. “Wait, that’s not right, you’re wearing a boys’ school jacket? It’s so big.”
Gu Siyi’s heart thumped. She forgot to take off his coat and return it to him.
“My jacket got dirty.” She said trying to escape her situation. “I borrowed it from a classmate, but I forgot to return it, so I’ll bring it to him tomorrow.”
The next day, Gu Siyi came to the classroom early and stuffed Xia Zhijun’s jacket into his desk.
During the morning reading, Gu Siyi consolidated what Xia Zhijun taught her last night, reading the book over and over again to get familiar with it.
Zheng Peipei, who was on the side, came late to class and instantly fell asleep from how little she slept last night.
At the end of the morning reading, Zheng Peipei stretched out and turned her sleepy head to Gu Siyi. “You are so good at reading, it could be used as a lullaby.”
Gu Siyi didn’t really know how to react to her statement. “…thank you for the compliment.”
“You are really a scholar. Work hard.” Zheng Peipei laughed.
“I’m not, I used to be a lot of fun,” said with a sense of sorrow. “But it was not easy for my parents to send me here to study, and they also spent a lot of money, so I don’t want to let them down. ”
“Good girl.” Zheng Peipei touched her head with relief.
Gu Siyi was about to push her away when a ball of paper flew and hit Zheng Peipei’s wrist. She immediately retracted her hand and looked over at the oppressor angrily. “Lu Jiaye, please be careful!”
Lu Jiaye was dumbfounded, he quickly waved his hand to the real oppressor. “It’s not me! It’s… him.” The end of his hand was pointing at Xia Zhijun who was walking towards the door.
“…this scourge.” Zheng Peipei said indignantly, “I should not have come to the sixth class. I said he is not pleasing to the eye, my mom said that we were childhood friends and he will take care of me.”
Gu Si Yi: “…”
It turns out, many people want Xia Zhijun to take care of them.
The same world, the same mom.
