“Hey, Ye Zhi Jin, your Su……”
“There’s a large scale math exchange seminar at the Falling Star Building. Last time you said that you said you didn’t get seats, so I had someone get two tickets, do you want to go?” Ye Zhi Jin cut him off and got to the main point.
“Yes, yes, yes, can I get an extra one?” Ji Chen looked at Luo Qing Chen on the side before saying, “I want to bring my little assistant with me.”
Luo Qing Chen heard this and her breathing stopped, as her heartbeat slowly began to increase.
“No.” Ye Zhi Jin softly said, “I’m not going, I still have other things later. You can go with your assistant, I’ll be at the Other Shore Cafe waiting for you.”
Without knowing it, when he heard the words little assistant, his brows slightly knit. He couldn’t help thinking about what Ji Chen said yesterday.
——Don’t you know? She didn’t need to write down any part of the process at all, she just directly wrote the answer.”
“Woah, I knew you were the best to me.” Ji Chen said with a happy smile, “Relax, Su Lan is looking for you, so I’ll bring her over. That way you won’t be alone even if you don’t have me with you.”
Ye Zhi Jin couldn’t say anything before Ji Chen hung up.
Inside Ji Chen’s luxurious limo, the car was silent.
Only when Su Lan slowly spoke did it break the silence.
“You look quite young, did you just graduate?” Su Lan looked at Luo Qing Chen, asking with a questioning tone.
Luo Qing Chen looked out the window and casually said, “I’ve graduated…..quite a few years ago.”
She was thinking of that year’s summer when the air was filled with faint camphor scent.
She stood at the crossroads, watching time passed.
So many years all at once.
“Then…..did you study in this city before?” There was a trace of panic in Su Lan’s eyes as she kept asking.
“Un, yes.” She softly replied.
“Su Lan.” She wanted to keep asking, but Ji Chen had cut her off as he said with a smile, “Why are you asking all these questions today? It’s not like your normal young miss attitude at all!”
“Is…..Is that so?” She lowered her head and said nothing else.
She just felt the sweat in her palms, as her heart couldn’t help feeling panic and her fingers trembled slightly.
Her selfish wish was that that girl would never appear in this life.
Su Lan had liked Ye Zhi Jin for an entire seven years.
This was the most persistent thing that a spoiled girl like had done before.
But she knew that she couldn’t walk into his heart.
She wasn’t afraid of hearing rejection from him, she was just afraid of seeing him stand in front of the high rise window at night, looking so lonely.
She had deliberately gone to the Dream One High School anniversary party. When that girl called Bei Xiao Shi told him to forget, she could clearly see the panic, fear, and unwillingness in his eyes……
Half an hour later, at the entrance of the Falling Star Building.
Ji Chen looked at his watch while moving forward and saying, “Zhi Jin is waiting for us at the Other Cliff Cafe, let’s go, let’s go. I already can’t wait to show off at the conference.”
Luo Qing Chen was in a bit of daze, as she felt like her feet weighed a thousand pounds.
It was only the blink of an eye for her, but it was an entire seven years for that young man.
It was hard to imagine what he felt when his most important person had just vanished into thin air.
It should be despair……
There was a wind chime at the door of the cafe and when a breeze blew, it created a chiming sound.
