Chapter 95 Meeting of the Two Girls
Getting the tickets,
After waiting in the waiting hall for half an hour, Fang Qiu and his travel companions entered the waiting hall through the ticket inspection in the eyes of everyone.
Boarding the bullet train,
“Lie her down. I’ll go and get an ice pack.”
Fang Qiu quickly put the seat flat and said to Yuan Bei and Huang Manman who were supporting Jiang Miaoyu. Then he turned around to leave.
“How do you feel? Still hurt?”
Once Jiang Miaoyu lay down, Wang Yu went ahead to ask.
“Not too bad. I can bear it.”
Answered Jiang Miaoyu.
Said Wang Yu, nodding her head. “Once back in school, have a good checkup in the hospital and get some medicine. You need to get better soon before the end of the holiday. It would be awful if the beauty of our school has to go to class limping in front of everyone.”
After spinning the seat, Yuan Bei rolled her eyes and asked, “One step of 1.7 meters and then the next of 1.6?”
After her question,
The four girls couldn’t help laughing.
The scene was too vivid.
“You don’t say. Student Fang Qiu arrived just in time. Soon after Miaoyu’s injury, he showed up.”
Remarked Huang Manman suddenly.
“I thought he wouldn’t come to Mount Tai.”
Yuan Bei looked at Jiang Miaoyu with some deep meaning.
“I don’t know.”
Jiang Miaoyu gave a tiny smile.
“If you don’t know, we won’t know.”
Said Wang Yu with a grin.
“Could this be the so-called telepathy? Otherwise why would he show up as soon as Miaoyu sprained her ankle?”
Yuan Bei teased.
“Emm… Very possible.”
Wang Yu and Huang Manman nodded simultaneously earnestly in agreement.
“Don’t talk nonsense.”
Jiang Miaoyu muttered, flushed.
At this time,
Fang Qiu came with an ice bag in his hands. He went straight to Jiang Miaoyu’s bed.
“You just sprained your ankle and your ruptured vessels are still bleeding. Put this ice bag on to suppress the injury.”
As he said that,
Fang Qiu gently put the ice bag on Jiang Miaoyu’s twisted ankle.
Jiang Miaoyu said quietly.
Fang Qiu replied with a smile. “Don’t move about. Keep it on for a while until it feels too cold.”
“Rest assured. Leave this to me. After all, we are also medical students. This is not too difficult for me.”
Yuan Bei chipped in.
Fang Qiu nodded before turning to Jiang Miaoyu, “Haven’t had lunch, have you?”
“Now that you mention it, I suddenly feel very hungry.”
Said Wang Yu, covering her stomach.
“Yeah. So am I. Why didn’t anyone ask me?”
Huang Manman kept a straight face but a faint smile could be seen in her eyes.
“Okay. I’ll ask when food will be delivered.”
Fang Qiu nodded before taking his leave.
“No one has ever taken care of me. Now here is one all of a sudden. I’m not used to it at all.”
Yuan Bei looked at Jiang Miaoyu and joked.
“We are benefiting from an association with our campus belle Jiang. How fortunate!”
Huang Manman said to Jiang Miaoyu with a smirk.
“It’s our strength to benefit, isn’t it?”
Replied Yuan Bei.
Wang Yu looked at Jiang Miaoyu with a smile in her eyes and said nothing.
No explanation was needed.
Jiang Miaoyu pretended to be asleep and ignored the trio.
“Someone is speechless and playing deaf now.”
Huang Manman remarked.
Jiang Miaoyu’s face became redder.
At this time,
Fang Qiu returned with five free lunches.
“Finally you are back. Our Miaoyu has been awaiting with great anxiety.”
Seeing Fang Qiu, Yuan Bei teased at once.
Jiang Miaoyu opened her eyes and glanced at Yuan Bei with some blame.
Yuan Bei didn’t care.
Fang Qiu laughed.
After lunch, Fang Qiu took great care of Jiang Miaoyu. Yuan Bei and the other two joked and laughed louder and louder, embarrassing Fang Qiu and Jiang Miaoyu.
Finally they arrived.
Yuan Bei and Wang Yu helped Jiang Miaoyu get off the train. They then took a taxi directly back to school.
The taxi pulled in at the gate of the Jiangjing University of Chinese Medicine.
“Fang Qiu, it’s too hard for us to support Jiang Miaoyu. We touch her foot all the time. Why don’t you carry her back?”
Said Yuan Bei with a bright smile like a blooming flower.
Fang Qiu agreed immediately without much thought.
Jiang Miaoyu’s foot could hardly move right now. Walking with some support might cause problems. And it wouldn’t look good for a girl to hop around.
Jiang Miaoyu remained silent all the way.
Off the car,
Fang Qiu carried Jiang Miaoyu on his back and walked towards the school gate surrounded by Yuan Bei, Wang Yu, and Huang Manman.
As he arrived at the school gate,
Fang Qiu suddenly came to a stop.
Gazing forward, he seemed lost.
A girl was walking out of the school.
When Fang Qiu noticed the girl, she laid her eyes on Fang Qiu. She was stunned after one quick glance.
Looking at the girl,
Fang Qiu carefully put Jiang Miaoyu down.
Jiang Miaoyu lifted her eyes, much puzzled.
She saw a very pretty girl in a simple dress, intellectual and young.
At the same time.
The girl’s eyes moved from Fang Qiu’s face to Jiang Miaoyu. She sized Jiang Miaoyu up from head to toes.
At last, the two looked at each other.
In their eyes, there were confusion, doubts, and seeking for answers.
For the very first time, Fang Qiu hesitated.
As his eyes moved between the girl in front of him and Jiang Miaoyu, he didn’t know what to say.
After exchanging a glance, the girl and Jiang Miaoyu turned to Fang Qiu at the same time.
They both looked puzzled.
They were both questioning Fang Qiu, “Who is she?”
“What are you doing here?”
Fang Qiu asked the girl in front of him with a smile.
A very cordial greeting.
To his surprise,
The girl didn’t answer; instead, she approached to punch Fang Qiu gently and said, “Not bad. It didn’t take you long to get to know such a beautiful female school mate.”
“Haven’t we known each other for a long time?
Fang Qiu smiled at the girl before turning around to introduce her to Jiang Miaoyu, “This is a classmate from my highschool, Jiang Mengjie.”
Then he turned back to look at Jiang Mengjie and said, “She’s my classmate Jiang Miaoyu. And these are her roommates, Yuan Bei, Wang Yu, and Huang Manman.”
Jiang Mengjie nodded to the four with a smile.
Jiang Miaoyu replied.
“Are you injured?”
After exchanging greetings, Jiang Miaoyu looked at Jiang Miaoyu’s red, swollen ankle and then said to Fang Qiu, “She’s injured so badly. Take her back quickly.”
“We are delayed by you.”
Fang Qiu smiled again. He carried Jiang Miaoyu on his back and headed towards the girls’ dormitory.
Jiang Mengjie followed behind.
No one talked along the way.
The atmosphere was a little awkward.
The group arrived at Jiang Miaoyu’s dorm.
“You guys haven’t seen each other for a long time. Go and catch up. I’ll be okay with Yuan Bei here.”
As soon as she laid down, Jiang Miaoyu said with a smile.
“Fine. I’ll visit you tomorrow.”
After some thought, Fang Qiu said with a nod.
It was holiday but some students were staying in school. It wouldn’t be good if someone saw him in the girls’ dormitory.
Especially the middle-aged dormitory manager.
Who was more strict than their own mother.
Leaving the girls’ dormitory,
“Where do you want to go?”
Fang Qiu asked Jiang Mengjie.
“Your school sports ground. We can walk and talk.”
Answered Jiang Mengjie with a smile.
Fang Qiu nodded.
They walked towards the sports ground while chatting.
“When did you get here?”
Asked Fang Qiu, looking at Jiang Mengjie.
Jiang Mengjie said with a smile as she walked and looked at Fang Qiu with her head tilted. “I wanted to surprise you. Then I met a student at the school gate who happened to know you. He led me in search of you for a long time and then we realized you were not in school. After, I checked into a hotel nearby and waited for you to return.”
“Your long wait has paid off. I’m back now.”
Fang Qiu laughed.
“Yes, with a beautiful girl on your back.”
A trace of inexplicable bitterness flashed across Jiang Mengjie’s eyes. She then laughed and changed the subject,
“Do you know why I didn’t call or leave when I couldn’t find you?”
Fang Qiu shook his head honestly.
“Because I know I’ll see you.”
Fang Qiu smiled sweetly and continued, “See. We met.”
Fang Qiu smiled instead of answering.
“I didn’t expect.”
Jiang Mengjie didn’t pester incessantly on Jiang Miaoyu. “It’s only been less than a month since the school started and you are already famous throughout the school.”
Fang Qiu gazed at Jiang Mengjie, puzzled.
He didn’t understand how she had found out.
“After arriving at your school, I took a look at its BBS and the forum is all about someone. Your rank is pretty high.”
Explained Jiang Mengjie.
Fang Qiu chuckled.
“First, the school mid-autumn party, then the start-of-term ceremony, and at last some club stuff. Three songs plus a talent show. Your performance caused an increasing sensation. Fang, you are still the same you!”
“Even better than that you in highschool. I almost couldn’t recognize you anymore.”
Looking into the distance, Jiang Mengjie recalled some old memories. Her voice sounded far away. “Fang, I haven’t heard you singing for a long time. Sing a song for you, would you?”
“What would you like to hear?”
Fang Qiu asked softly.
“Shui Mu Nian Hua’s Middle School Days.”
Fang Qiu nodded.
He knew this song.
After taking a breath gently, he began.
“Through the sports ground, getting wet in the rain,
“My timid you,
“When did you become lonely?
“Crying quietly in the corner.
On the sports ground.
Fang Qiu’s singing sounded beautifully.
The two of them walked side by side.
Jiang Mengjie didn’t speak or laugh. She gazed at Fang Qiu’s face as he sang, with a faint smile on her lips.
One song. He sang for three minutes and Jiang Mengjie watched Fang Qiu for three minutes.
Her eyes didn’t leave him for a second.
As if she was completed immersed in Fang Qiu’s voice or simply enjoying being by Fang Qiu’s side.
She loved the feeling.
“What is love?
“I don’t know yet.
“Who could understand forever?
“Who could understand himself?
“Hide the lily diary in the bag.
“My innocent you.
“My one and only.”
Next to him,
Jiang Mengjie laughed merrily all of a sudden as she heard this last line, her eyes still locked on Fang Qiu.
Her smile was very sweet and beautiful.
