Qian was trembling with anger.
She was indeed flirting with Lichen, that was right, but Lichen didn’t refuse it either.
How confused a person could be about this kind of ambiguous thing? This was a matter that involved two people.
However, she couldn’t give an explanation for everyone’s suspicion and accusing eyes. Indeed, she herself violated the agreement.
But she didn’t believe that she was the only one. She didn’t believe that a few of them hadn’t sneaked up to flirt with Lichen. Each of them didn’t need to pretend to be a white lotus.
Qian’s angry and resentful gaze shot over, and Lichen only let out a contemptuous grunt, ignored this group of girls, then turned around and left.
He didn’t know which girl behind him cried out loudly.
He didn’t look back either.
He did it on purpose.
There were no secrets in their class. Qian and this small group’s ‘agreement’ had long been heard by him. But Qian, the leader, kept making a move on him in private.
Qian also looked good, she was a beautiful girl. Of course, Lichen didn’t mind another beautiful girl to get involved with him.
At this time, he threw this matter out which exposed Qian’s actions.
Lichen had never been a kind person.
He reached the platform of the escalator and stood there, remembering how Yansheng smiled at him just now, then put on his sunglasses and walked away. That look had been engraved in his mind.
They are all of the same age, but how can she be so different from other girls? he thought.
Yansheng returned home and kept staring at Heling during dinner.
Heling became nervous.
She cautiously asked, “Sister? Is there something wrong?”
Shuocheng held a bowl, then he rolled his eyes and smiled. “You’re screwed! Sister is going to beat your ass!”
Heling was taken aback and shouted angrily, “You are talking nonsense!”
But Shuocheng was very sure of it. “When she was about to beat me up, she would stare at me like that!”
Heling was stunned.
When she looked at Yansheng again, there was a little anxiety in her eyes.
Yansheng stretched out a hand and clasped it on Shuocheng’s head. “Eat your meal!”
Huan almost laughed but held back, then he also tried to scare Heling. “What have you done? Think about it! Hurry up and admit your mistake to your sister.”
Heling couldn’t tell if her father was serious or joking, so she was even more confused. “I… I didn’t do anything… let me think about it…”
She knew that she didn’t do anything wrong, but when she was frightened by her father’s words, she didn’t feel confident anymore.
This character is terrible, Yansheng thought so she said unhappily, “They are just teasing you. When did I say I’m going to beat you?”
Heling breathed a sigh of relief and gave Shuocheng a stern look.
Shuocheng pulled his eyes down. “Nye nye nye.”
Huan laughed loudly and thought that his little daughter was so funny.
Yingying watched the interaction of the ‘family’ and rolled her eyes secretly.
Since Zheng’s incident, Huan had not given her a good face. She later wanted to discipline Shuocheng, but she failed, which made Huan angry in vain.
She was very low-key now and if she talked more, she would make more mistakes. She would rather not speak because she didn’t want to make Huan upset anymore.
The others at the dining table were talking and laughing, while she wondered if she needed to change her hairstyle to create some freshness for Huan, lest he became tired of her appearance.
After dinner, Yansheng hooked her finger to call Heling. “You, follow me.”
Shuocheng saw it and teased her again, “You’re going to be beaten! You’re going to be beaten!”
Not waiting for Heling to come after him, he ran away first.
Heling stomped her feet with anger and knowing that Yansheng had no patience, she hurriedly chased after her upstairs and followed her into the room.
Once she sat down, Yansheng asked her, “Is there any bullying in your school?”
Heling breathed a sigh of relief. “No, our school is very good.”
Yansheng asked again, “Is anyone bullying you?”
Today, Qian and a group of girls tried to ‘teach’ her a lesson, reminding her of the stupid things these girls did in middle school. When she went home and saw Heling, she suddenly became worried.
This girl’s personality was too soft. If she were to meet someone like Qian, she was the kind who would be bullied to death and dared not resist.
Heling shook her head like a rattle. “No, how could anyone bully me?”
Yansheng breathed a sigh of relief and suddenly remembered Heling’s character. In case others bully her, she will not even notice that she’s being bullied, right?
Isn’t that what she is like at home? She has become accustomed to the unfair treatment of her for a long time, and she doesn’t feel any wrong about it.
Yansheng thought for a while and said, “Bullying is not necessarily beating you, it may also be something else. For example, using nasty words to talk to you, or deliberately stealing your friends so that everyone is not nice to you, or something else. Anyway, if this matter keeps making you feel uncomfortable and unhappy, it may be bullying. Think about it, have you experienced something like that?”
When she said this, Heling really showed a look of hesitation on her face, so Yansheng frowned.
“There is a boy…” Heling said hesitantly, “I hate him.”
Yansheng asked in a deep voice, “What did he do to you?”
If that sh*tty brat dares to bully my sister, I will knock his head out!
“He just… well, how do you say it?” Heling scratched her head in annoyance and looked around, then she used Yansheng’s phone on the coffee table as an example. “That’s it. For example, this is a pen or a ruler. I will put it here horizontally and he will change it to a vertical position. If I put it in the horizontal position again, then he’ll change it into vertical again, and it was endless, super annoying.”
Yansheng was speechless.
Heling continued, “He would always give me nicknames, too. If I tie my hair into a ponytail, he will call me a ponytail. And if I put it in a braid, he will call me twisted dough.”
“Oh, by the way,” Heling said angrily, “he sometimes pulls my braids, which is super annoying!”
Yansheng carefully asked for verification, “Did he hurt you?”
“Well, no, he was not forceful,” Heling explained, “he’s just very annoying, I’m super annoyed by him. I am angry at him every day.”
“Does he do those things to others too?” Yansheng continued to verify.
“No!” Heling became even more angry. “He only treats me like this, which is especially hateful!”
Heling finished speaking and asked, “Sister, is he bullying me?”
Yansheng’s expression was subtle.
Her little sister’s big questioning eyes were shiny, her small mouth was pink, and her skin was white. Although Yansheng had never been to Heling’s school, she dared to guarantee that Heling’s face value must be the same as her academic performance in the class, at least in the top three.
Moreover, in the fourth grade, her younger sister began to develop, so it was normal for those brats to start showing their admiration for a young lady.
She recalled that when she was in the fourth or fifth grade, her classmates were already talking about who liked whom.
Facing her sister’s humble inquiry, when her sister’s eyes were fluttering, her tongue was pressed against her cheeks, she finally said, “Do you want him to never bother you again?”
Heling nodded heavily. “Yes!”
“Good, then I’ll teach you,” Yansheng said. “By the way, what is the name of this boy?”
Yansheng nodded. “Next time, if he annoys you, you will stare into his eyes. Remember to stare straight at him and don’t let your breath out, and then…”
Heling concentrated and held her breath. She listened attentively to the moves her sister taught her.
“Then you have to ask him,” Yansheng stared into Heling’s eyes and said, “Hao, do you like me?”
Heling raised her tone in shock. “Huh??!”
The sister who saw through everything smiled and touched her head. “Believe me, for this kind of childish brat, you have to kill it with one blow. By the way, Dad mentioned it to me once before and I think you should also learn taekwondo…”
However, her elementary student sister was too shocked to listen.
The next day, Yansheng got out of the car behind the subway station and walked in the direction of the school. Just walking past the entrance of the subway station, she heard someone calling her. “Yansheng!”
She turned her head.
Lichen stood with his back against the wall of the subway station, his hands were in his trouser pockets, one long leg pressed diagonally against the other.
One of the girls from No.1 High School, who came out of the subway station, saw him and couldn’t help but look back at him while walking. One girl didn’t see the steps under her feet and she staggered to the ground, so she blushed and ran away quickly.
Lichen, on the other hand, maintained this handsome posture for several seconds, so that Yansheng could see clearly, before standing up straight and stepping forward, he walked towards her with a smile.
Yansheng was speechless.
Then, she looked far away. This was the reason why she now looked down on the current Lichen—this handsome and cool fifteen-year-old guy, in the eyes of an adult Yansheng, she could see the second-grader qi that was coming out of the soles of his feet.
She thought that he was acting in a youth idol drama all day long.
When the adults saw this kind of act, they would be embarrassed.
“You left before I had time to speak yesterday,” Lichen complained. Although it was a complaint, his tone was intimate and gentle. There had been a significant change from before, those superior mentality and forceful attitude were gone.
Yansheng now had a wooden face. “What’s the matter?”
Lichen fixed his hair handsomely and replied, “I want to apologize to you.”
Yansheng’s face became even more wooden. “What are you apologizing for?”
Lichen answered, “Just for what Qian and the others did.”
Yansheng raised an eyebrow. “Qian is your girlfriend so you’re apologizing for her?”
“I have nothing to do with her,” Lichen immediately refuted it, “she was chasing me despite knowing that I’m pursuing you. Since I received a punishment, she was angry and wanted to teach you a lesson. Speaking of it, it’s still because of me, so I want to apologize to you.”
Yansheng only looked at him and did not seem to have the slightest fluctuations in her emotions.
In her previous life, she rejected Lichen and proposed to be friends only, and Lichen agreed.
As you looked at it, it seemed that he was satisfied with the next best thing. But in fact, this kid might have thought in his heart that in their three-person relationship, he was hugging both left and right, with great pleasure.
Yansheng could see through an old man like Huan in this life, and when she looked at other men, even a second-grader teenager like Lichen, she could clearly see their inferior nature as men.
“Since she is not your girlfriend, what she does has nothing to do with you!” Then, she turned around and walked towards the school. “Don’t f*cking pretend to be a saint of love in front of me!”
