“You really won’t give up without seeing the Yellow River.” Li Sheng gave a shrug as he said to him with a look of disdain, “No wonder my Ning Qiu chose me in the end and not a piece of trash like you.”
“Li Sheng!” Ji Chen grabbed his collar with eyes filled with rage.
“Don’t fight.” Luo Qing Chen quickly pulled him back and said to Li Sheng with knit brows, “Before the competition begins, no one knows the results. If you start bragging now, wait until someone slaps your face.”
Luo Qing Chen knew that based on their simple interaction, there was something between the two of them.
Un, a woman!
“Ha, ha.” Li Sheng patted his suit and looked at Luo Qing Chen with a cold gaze before looking at Li Sheng, “Good! Now you’re starting to play with little girls.”
“Based on your appearance, you should be Ji Chen’s uncle! Thirty five…..Ah, you look like you’re forty.”
“You…..” Ji Chen had a good mind, naturally he could understand the meaning in Luo Qing Chen’s words. He bit his lip and said, “Open your eyes, big brother is only twenty five.”
“Ze, ze, ze.” Luo Qing Chen deliberately looked him over before shaking her head and saying, “You really don’t seem like it.”
“Ai.” She cut him off and said with cold eyes, “Blaming your old age on other people looking young, you really are without grace. Of course, you’re calling a twenty year old like me an underaged girl, is there something wrong with your old eyes, or is it……”
She paused before continuing, “I look too good!”
As soon as her voice fell, she didn’t look at Li Sheng’s face at all, she just dragged the stunned Ji Shen to the empty spot in front.
When she sat down, she said with a faint smile, “How about, was I handsome just now!”
“Stunningly handsome, alright?” Ji Chen looked at her with surprise and said, “Did you see how red with rage Li Sheng looked? With how passive you normally looked, I never thought that someone like you could be so powerful.”
Luo Qing Chen’s lips curled and said with a soft smile, “So Ning Qiu is……”
“Ke, ke.” Ji Chen scratched the back of his head and said with an awkward look, “Past.”
“Oh.” Luo Qing Chen looked at his annoyed and angry expression and she couldn’t help saying with a smile, “I know, I can hear it.”
“Ning Qiu was my childhood friend.” After a while, Ji Chen drank from his strawberry au lait and leaned back as his eyes glazed over with memories. He slowly said, “I didn’t understand what love was back then and Ning Qiu was always by my side, so I felt that Ning Qiu should belong to me, always.”
When he said the words childhood friends, Luo Qing Chen slightly knit his brows. It was like the memories frozen deep in her heart suddenly shattered open.
Luo Qing Chen didn’t say anything, she just took her drink from the bag and took a sip as she silently listened to him.
“Then there was a national math competition and I went with Ning Qiu, where we met Li Sheng……”
“No, I won the competition.” Ji Chen said with a helpless smile, “But I lost her.”
“And then?” Luo Qing Chen said with a look of enjoying the gossip on her face.
“And then?” Ji Chen gave a casual smile and said with narrowed eyes, “Then Ning Qiu ran away with him.”
The young man in front of her used a casual tone to explain it like it was unrelated to him, but she could tell from his eyes that his heart was filled with loneliness and pain.
