Little Sweetheart - Chapter 8
Strange Feelings (1)
Xia Zhijun and his group sat in the cafeteria excitedly waiting for their newfound friend, Gu Siyi. Who said that only girls gossip, boys together would also gossip.
Lu Jiaye: “What gift does my sister want to give you?”
Su Han: “Maybe it’s a glass jar of a thousand paper cranes, small stars, small hearts, or something like that?”
Zhou Xiao: “Maybe it’s a pillow embroidered by her own hands? A cup made by her?”
Lu Jiaye looked at Xia Zhijun, who had never said a word: “Ah Jun, what do you think it will be? Are you not curious?”
Xia Zhijun said, “It doesn’t matter what she gives me, as long as I want it.”
“Your free attitude is a little too light, are you sure it’s worthy of being the child of a cadre and I have lost!” Lu Jiaye repeatedly cupped his hands together. Su Han and Zhou Xiao on the other hand slowly looked at each other with a demeaning smirk.
At that moment, Gu Siyi walked into the cafeteria and dropped a bag by their table, “I heard that you like this, so I had it specially prepared for you.”
“Wow, what? I don’t know what Ah Jun likes!” Su Han, who was sitting next to him, immediately went to grab the bag.
When a few bottles of spicy garlic sauce appeared in front of everyone, several people looked at each other, and Lu Jiaye took the lead in bursting out laughter.
He smiled and said, “Yes, I remember my sister doesn’t go the normal way!”
“Just use it when you feel like it.” Su Han patted Xia Zhijun’s shoulder and said with a smile.
Zhou Xiao asked seriously, “Ah Jun likes to eat sauce?!”
Xia Zhujin only used the sauce when he was at home because naturally, his breath would smell if he had garlic sauce at school and he had a reputation to keep. He did not expect Gu Siyi to bring him a few bottles of the sauce to the school.
Gu Siyi said to Xia Zhijun very seriously, “This was made by my aunt. The ingredients were all grown in the yard of my hometown. There are no pesticides, no preservatives, and the production process is very clean.”
Xia Zhijun nodded, “Thanks.” His tone was very light, and not much emotion could be seen.
Gu Siyi observed his expression, “Don’t you like it?”
Lu Jiaye rushed in before he had a chance to reply. “If he doesn’t like it, give it to me! I like it! For the sake of my sister, I am willing to be a hot sauce boy!”
Gu Siyi ignored him and looked back at Xia Zhijun. “If you don’t like it, I will take it back. I like it.”
Heh, the little girl still has a temper. Xia Zhijun wanted to look at her with a smile, “Do you want to hear me say I like it?”
“No, I just think … Don’t force yourself.” Gu Siyi muttered. If someone rejects her gift, she might as well enjoy it herself, because not all the dishes in the school suited her taste.
“I’m not reluctant, I like it.” He finally stated.
Xia Zhijun looked up at the girl’s face that had brightened dramatically, a smile ensued on her face and he felt a little relieved. “Are you happy now?”
“Well, I’m not upset.” Gu Siyi retorted, a little embarrassed.
He had the strange feeling of wanting to pinch the small pinkish-red earlobes under the tips of her hair, for a reason he could not understand. It was truly strange.
Later At breakfast time, people came in and out of the cafeteria one after another. Many people secretly eyed Xia Zhijun’s table.
A few girls who were sitting at an adjacent table murmured their thoughts. “Unbelievable, Xia Zhijun would eat with girls.”
“Isn’t he annoyed the most when girls approach?”
“Yes, when playing ball, he doesn’t drink the water girls send. Why is this girl an exception?”
“Is she his new girlfriend?”
“Impossible! Xia Zhijun refused even the school flower at the beginning, saying that he should concentrate on studying and not fall in love early.”
“Who is this girl? Is she Lu Jiaye or Su Han’s girlfriend?”
“No! They’re so handsome and gentle. Why should they be with her?”
“Take away my cool and domineering Brother Xiao, he can’t be with her!”
“Yes, yes, yes, they must not have girlfriends! It’s best to have the four male gods together and keep the most beautiful sight in Da Long Xing!”
Gu Siyi had no idea that she had become the focus of public opinion. After finishing up her breakfast, she went with them to the playground to gather around.
Because there were not many students in each class, the military training combined several classes and divided them into different teams according to men and women.
Gu Siyi was tall and stood out, so she was put at the end of the girls’ team. As The temperature got warmer over time, fewer and fewer girls were able to stand straight in their military posture. Only Gu Siyi stood still. Not only because of her exceptional physical strength but also because she was thinking about Xu Na in her head and her body perception was relatively dull.
It was not until the instructor walked to her and praised her as an example that she woke up from her daydream.
When the instructor’s attention turned towards another instructor, she heard disdainful laughter from the team.
“She comes from a foreign school.”
“She is so awesome, she fights with her seniors, and pretends to be pure in front of Xia Zhijun.”
“Right? Following behind the male gods and acting cute.”
“It’s not just about being good-looking.”
The people in the front row were whispering, she didn’t know who was talking.
But she suddenly laughed and said to the air, “Just admit that I’m good-looking, why be so obviously jealous?”
Not long after, the instructor came back and began to practice again. The logistics staff prepared two boxes of mineral water for each team. The instructor announced a break, and one by one, like dehydrated fish, they went straight to get water.
Gu Siyi stood at the end of the line and waited until the others had finished taking their water. There was supposed to be an equal amount of water bottles for each student. However, when she got to the box there was nothing left. Someone had taken more than they should have.
She looked around trying to figure out who had taken more but eventually deemed it useless. Gu Siyi took a deep breath, she felt a little irritated.
The playground for military training was far away from the cafeteria. With the little break, she would have to run back and forth to buy water, which was exhausting.
She endured her thirst and found a shade to sit down in. The girls who had been sitting there took a look at her and moved to other places.
Gu Siyi crossed her legs, lowered her head, and put her hands on her chin, silently hypnotizing herself. Not thirsty, I am not thirsty, I am not thirsty, I am not thirsty at all …!
I am not thirsty at all!!
