Chapter 297 Will You Be My Girlfriend
“I love you. Will you marry me?”
In the square, standing in the candles of a heart shape, the boy handed the bouquet of roses to the girl and immediately got down on one knee and called out the girl’s name, which made the crowd cheer for him.
“Say yes! Say yes!”
The boy’s friends clapped and shouted rhythmically.
At this point, the girl took the flower with her eyes filled with tears.
There was excitement and happiness in her eyes.
“Yes.” The girl bit her lips and nodded her head as she burst into tears because of happiness.
All of a sudden, people were shouting and applauding.
“Actually, the boy is happier.” Standing together with Jiang Miaoyu, Fang Qiu also looked at the scene on the square with envy, as if he replied what Jiang Miaoyu just said before.
Jiang Miaoyu turned her head and looked at Fang Qiu.
“Didn’t you just ask me why I wanted to treat you?” Fang Qiu smiled and got closer to Jiang Miaoyu and whispered to her ear, “The reason is… I like you.”
Jiang Miaoyu froze.
She bit her lips and couldn’t help but feel surprised.
“I said I liked you.” Fang Qiu repeated what he said. It was much louder this time.
Jiang Miaoyu was still in surprise and happiness. Then he grabbed Jiang Miaoyu’s hand and ran toward the fountain on the square.
Although it was snowing, there was still some water in the pool. However, the fountain didn’t spout at that time.
Jiang Miaoyu was in a daze while Fang Qiu was holding her hand. They had already rushed into the crowd before she realized what just happened.
Those who were cheering for the girl who just accepted the boy’s proposal of marriage froze when they saw Fang Qiu and Jiang Miaoyu. They were rather confused. Even that boy who had just proposed successfully also looked at them.
“Hello, everyone.” Seeing the surprised look from the crowd around him, Fang Qiu smiled and said, “Today, I want to confess my love to someone I like.”
While he was talking, he gazed at Jiang Miaoyu affectionately.
The crowd paused for a while and then they started to clap and cheer.
Standing in front of Fang Qiu, Jiang Miaoyu’s eyes were widely opened.
Fang Qiu smiled. With everyone watching, he held Jiang Miaoyu’s hand and stated loudly, “Take the fountain as my witness, everything I say, I mean it.”
They stopped clapping and cheering, waiting for Fang Qiu to complete his words.
“I like a girl,” he said. And Jiang Miaoyu’s body quivered.
“Gurgle…” In the meantime, the fountain, which was not opened at all, suddenly spout out water as he spoke.
It just spouted for a few seconds. Everyone who saw that was dumbfounded because the fountain would never spout in winter.
Did the fountain reply to what the young man had said? The crowd was amazed.
“I’ve liked her for a long time,” Fang Qiu spoke.
As a result, the water of the fountain spouted again as soon as he finished his words.
The crowd was in shock.
“What was happening? Did the fountain just reply again? That was amazing.” People were thinking.
Not only did the onlookers feel surprised, but Jiang Miaoyu also was amazed when she looked at the fountain. Although she didn’t know how this happened, it was indeed romantic and made her happy.
“She is the most beautiful girl in my eyes.” Fang Qiu continued.
The fountain spouted again.
“My affection for her is deep love, and I’ll love her all my life.” The fountain continued to spout.
Everyone was stunned. Some people began to find the reason. Maybe the fountain had fallen to disrepair. And the nozzle was blocked and happened to be suddenly opened at this moment, so it spouted.
Even the groundsman rushed here to have a look.
As it turned out, the fountain wasn’t even open.
Everyone there was shocked. Nobody opened the fountain? Then why was it spouting water?
Did it just react to the young man’s promise?
Just as everyone was wondering, Fang Qiu grabbed Jiang Miaoyu’s other hand and looked at her affectionately. “This girl is you. Will you be my girlfriend?”
When she heard that, Jiang Miaoyu was moved, covering her mouth while bursting into tears.
What she was thinking was just like what Fang Qiu was saying.
She was just a girl who was kind and gentle. She was not as strong as she expected, so she chose to wait for him to say it.
She had waited so long for this moment.
Since the day she met Fang Qiu, she had always been worried, wondering whether he liked her or not. But she never doubted her feeling for him. She really liked Fang Qiu.
Maybe she didn’t just like him, she loved him.
“Will you be my girlfriend?” Fang Qiu asked her again.
Jiang Miaoyu was so excited and emotional. She was crying with her hand covering her mouth and then she nodded.
Hearing that, Fang Qiu immediately held her into his arms tightly.
At the same time, the water spouted immediately from the pool. This time, it didn’t just last for a few seconds. Instead, it didn’t stop and kept spouting.
With the street lights beside the square and colorful lights nearby, the fountain was so stunning. The snow was falling slowly. It was so beautiful that no one would dare to ruin the scene.
In such a beautiful picture, Fang Qiu and Jiang Miaoyu were embracing each other tightly. They were smiling happily. Jiang Miaoyu still had tears in her eyes.
Once again, everyone was shocked by the sudden rise of the fountain.
It attracted more people to come here because of the fountain.
After a while, a person started to applaud.
And then, all the onlookers applauded too.
“Thank you. Thank you all,” Fang Qiu said gratefully.
As a result, everyone focused on the fountain.
After Fang Qiu successfully confessed to Jiang Miaoyu, everyone immediately rushed forward and started to check the fountain.
“What a surprise. Is there something wrong with the fountain?”
“Yeah, what the hell is going on?”
“That can’t be just a coincidence.”
“I just check. The fountain is not open.”
“Why did the fountain start to spout when he talked to the girl?”
“This is rare, or should I say something to my girl?”
People began to discuss it.
In the crowd, many young people wanted to confess too, but they didn’t have the courage.
While people were discussing, the groundsman was also confused, so he made a call to the repair staff.
“I just found out that even when you cry, you’re beautiful.”
Fang Qiu helped Jiang Miaoyu gently wipe the tears on her face, and said with a gentle smile.
Hearing that, Jiang Miaoyu couldn’t help but smile.
The repairman who received the call came quickly with his toolbox, jumped into the pool, and examined every outlet carefully. It took quite a while, but he found that there was nothing wrong with the fountain.
“What the hell is going on?”
“Is your fountain psychic?”
“This fountain has a remote control. Why does it spout intermittently?”
“Maybe the valve of the fountain was broken?”
Seeing the repairman come out of the pool, the crowd began to ask questions.
“Nothing wrong,” the repairman said, “the fountain is completely normal and not broken. I don’t understand what happened just now.”
Hearing that, all of the onlookers were amazed.
“Is the fountain really psychic?”
“Now it doesn’t spout anymore. It seems that what happened just now was destined.”
“Yeah, that young man is so lucky.”
As they talked, they turned to look at Fang Qiu and Jiang Miaoyu.
Hearing what people were saying, Fang Qiu laughed and muttered, “That’s not a coincidence. I did that.”
“What did you say?” Jiang Miaoyu seemed to hear something, but she didn’t hear it clearly.
“Nothing. Let’s go,” said Fang Qiu, beaming.
Jiang Miaoyu nodded her head.
Then Fang Qiu directly took Jiang Miaoyu’s hand and walked toward a famous restaurant in the square.
It was five o’clock in the afternoon.
After singing all day and walking, both of them were hungry.
In the restaurant, Fang Qiu specially chose a double-seat table close to the glass window so that they could dine while watching the beautiful snow outside.
After dinner, Fang Qiu continued to stroll in the square, holding Jiang Miaoyu’s hand.
Fang Qiu suddenly stopped.
At the entrance of a large shopping mall, a gray-haired old lady who was about sixty or seventy years old was holding various kinds of hydrogen balloons, looking eagerly at the endless stream of passers-by.
“Buy a balloon.”
“Buy a hydrogen balloon.”
The old woman’s voice was so low that even the sound of snow was louder than hers.
A lot of people passed, but they were in a hurry. Nobody stopped to buy a balloon from her.
Noticing Fang Qiu stopping, Jiang Miaoyu looked at him and then followed his gaze.
When she saw that old lady, she couldn’t help but frown.
There was a feeling of pity in her eyes.
At this point, Fang Qiu was about to take a step forward.
Jiang Miaoyu moved faster than him. She dragged Fang Qiu’s hand and walked over.
“Good evening, ma’am, it’s getting dark. And it has been snowing all day. Why don’t you go home?”
Walking up to the old woman, Jiang Miao said, “Ma’am, it’s so cold here. You should go home. Otherwise, you might catch a cold.”
“It’s okay.” The old lady beamed and replied, “It doesn’t matter. Thank you, young lady.”
“Please, ma’am,” Jiang Miaoyu said worriedly.
“It’s okay, don’t worry about me.” The old lady shook her head. “I can do nothing but sell some balloons to make some money to share the burden of my children. If you don’t let me sell balloons, I really don’t know what to do.”
Hearing that, Jiang Miaoyu frowned, and tears welled up in her eyes.
“Okay, I’ll buy all your balloons.”
Without a second thought, Jiang Miaoyu took out her money and bought all the balloons.
The old lady wouldn’t agree in the first place, but Jiang Miaoyu insisted and persuaded her for a while, so she finally took the money and left.
When she was leaving, she couldn’t stop thanking Jiang Miaoyu for her kindness.
