After Transmigration, The Male Lead and I had a HE - Chapter 116
He was close by, so it was unknown if it was intentional or not, but when he spoke, he leaned forward slightly, carrying a faint sense of oppression.
Su Qiuge discovered that the distance between the two of them was decreasing. She raised her eyes and bumped into his gaze. She felt her breathing hitched.
This clearly already exceeded the minimum distance she felt safe with.
She was somewhat nervous and retreated a few steps, but as a result, the back of her foot stepped on the edge of the stair and she subconsciously leaned backwards.
She didn’t even have time to scream.
Her body fell back halfway before Xie Xinglin suddenly supported her at the waist. From a distance, this posture seemed as if in the next second, he was going to lift her up by the waist.
He lowered his eyes and stared at her for a long time. Then, he revealed a casual smile and said with a relatively deep and magnetic voice, “What, you can’t stand steadily after seeing a little white face?”
His hand stayed on her waist for only a moment, but she didn’t know if it was an illusion or not.
She unexpectedly felt that the hand on her waist had faintly drew her in.
After Su Qiuge reacted and stood firmly, with her right hand supported by the handrail next to them, he withdrew his hand and conveniently tucked it into his jacket, his expression mild.
Su Qiuge took a few breaths as she held the handrail. Then, she looked at him full of doubt, “Are you a ghost? You suddenly walked behind me and didn’t even say anything? D*mn it, wait, what’s the matter with you, why is there no sound when you walk!”
Xie Xinglin smoothly responded, “Really?”
Then he said neither fast nor slow, “I thought you would be more careful around a scumbag.”
After he finished, he raised his eyes and deliberately emphasized, “Especially the scumbag with a little white face.”
There is no end!!!
There is! No end!!!
She vowed to never mention these words ever again!!
The way this Xie Xinglin bore grudges, he really knew how to bear grudges!!
Su Qiuge took a deep breath, “Okay, Brother, let’s not talk about this anymore. It’s almost class time, we’re going to be late if we don’t hurry back.”
Xie Xinglin obviously did not intend to let her go. He sneered, “You still called me father a few days ago, but now you’re messing up the seniority?”
It seems like she can’t randomly call father in the future either.
Su Qiuge felt that if she continued to chat with him like this, they were going to be late for the second half of the evening self study, so she directly admitted defeat, “Okay, Seatment, I’ll apologize to you, so don’t talk to me in such an eccentric way. Can’t I be afraid?”
As soon as she finished speaking, the bell for the start of the second half of self study rang. Xie Xinglin followed behind her, his long legs moving in large strides and closing the distance between them.
The light in the hallway flickered and a shadow brushed against his face. The sky outside the hallway was a bit dim and the thin moonlight highlighted the corridor, illustrating the silhouette of the two people’s shadows walking side by side.
“What are you afraid of?”
Xie Xinglin turned sideways and fixedly stared at her. Then, he slowly said in a soft voice, “Am I going to eat you?”
When he said this, the lights in the hallway fell on his face and the other side sank into the shadows. It appeared somewhat ambiguous and dark.
It was unknown if it was Su Qiuge’s misperception, but the moment a flash of light passed by and his voice fell, he seemed to have faintly licked his lips.
Su Qiuge’s heart jumped and she quickly moved her line of sight away. In her heart, she felt that she probably saw wrongly.
Although she thought that way, her sense of vigilance still increased as a result. She also sped up her pace, believing that the person would return to normal once they arrived in class.
She moved in a hurry, only thinking about hurrying back to class, so she didn’t think about why the class that was always filled with topic discussions and casual conversations was unexpectedly so dreadfully quiet at this moment. When she walked to the doorway and clearly saw what was going on inside, she abruptly stopped.
And then she met the gaze of the dean who seemed to have been standing on the podium for a long time, patiently awaiting something.
Su Qiuge stared at him, a pair of large eyes meeting a pair of small ones. The more she looked at him, the more familiar he seemed. Then, she suddenly remembered that this teacher was the Director Xu that was incredibly committed to catching young lovers and sweethearts. Last time, he had chased after Xie Xinglin and her throughout the teaching building with a flashlight.
Unexpectedly, they would have such a coincidental meeting. They had ran around in circles to avoid him, yet in the end, they still met.
It was simply like a predestined arrangement.
