After Transmigration, The Male Lead and I had a HE - Chapter 132
She looked at Xie Xinglin, gritted her teeth, and said, “Was this on purpose? Are you trying to scare me?”
Xie Xinglin’s hands were both in his jacket pocket, and the whole person appeared lazy and casual. Those who didn’t know better would’ve thought he simply happened to walk by while strolling around.
But it was exactly this attitude that played with her sanity for so long just now!!
Xie Xinglin quietly said, “I felt like coming upstairs, and as a result, heard some movement from over here and thought it might be a clue, but who would’ve thought……”
His gaze fell on Su Qiuge and his tone was light, “It was a certain coward that was hiding here.”
Su Qiuge felt that he was deliberately trying to scare her and when she recalled how her terrified appearance just now had been seen by someone, she became flustered and said, “Who’s a coward? Just this kind of escape room with no atmosphere at all, if I’m scared, then I’m rubbish. I was clearly looking for clues here alone and you suddenly came in, how can I not hide? I……”
While she was speaking, Xie Xinglin suddenly put his index finger on her lips and then pressed her whole body against the window behind the curtain.
The boy’s frame was originally larger than hers and when it covered her like this, it carried a strong sense of oppression. Su Qiuge’s heart tightened and she was about to push him away, but heard him whisper into her ear with his head lowered, “That man with the ax, he came up.”
“Quiet down, okay?”
As soon as his voice fell, the sound of messy footsteps appeared outside as expected. Su Qiuge immediately held her breath with full focus and didn’t dare to open her mouth to speak anymore.
Xie Xinglin noticed that although she had a tranquil expression, appearing very calm and composed, her whole body was trembling.
Su Qiuge’s condition at this moment was as if her mind had understood the situation, but her body didn’t.
Xie Xinglin faintly hooked the corner of his lips, leaned closer to her, and unhurriedly said in a slow breath, “Little Rubbish, are you shaking?”
Now that she knew the ax man was coming up, she didn’t dare to speak loudly to him, so she simply turned her head and did not look at him.
In any case, it wasn’t her, she wasn’t scared at all.
Although her mind was thinking like this, for some reason, her trembling unexpectedly became even more intense.
And as a result, she could only bite the bullet and softly explain, “It’s too cold here, I’m a little afraid of the cold.”
What she said was also true. The classroom was truly a bit cold and they also happened to be in the path of the air vents at the moment, therefore the air conditioning was directly blowing down at them.
In addition, she was already in a nervous mood, so both her hands and feet were ice cold at the moment. It was difficult for the blood to circulate in her body.
The footsteps of the ax man outside still did not stop, as if he knew that the two of them were inside.
And at this moment, she heard the sound of a zipper next to her ear, followed by the youth’s low chuckle, “Tsk, really so troublesome.”
As soon as Su Qiuge raised her head, she saw Xie Xinglin unzipping his jacket and then directly wrapping her in it, pasting her to his chest. The smell of Chinese honey locust immediately spread around her.
His long and narrow eyes faintly drooped down as he looked at her from above. He said with a somewhat teasing tone, “Is it still cold now? Mhm?”
The body temperature of a boy this age was always fiery hot and with her against his chest, it was as if a sheet of raw ice had come into contact with a raging fire, causing one to feel a strong sense of shock. Su Qiuge’s body faintly shuddered.
The youth’s jacket had a clean scent and you could even detect a cold fragrance when you paid closer attention. However, his body temperature slowly permeated over bit by bit, allowing Su Qiuge’s originally nervous heart to gradually settle down.
But with the two bodies closely fitting together, the warm temperature he carried made her heart palpitate a little, and she could even feel the ups and downs of his muscle line underneath the clothes.
Su Qiuge took a deep breath, and for some reason, felt goosebumps appearing all over her body.
He stared at her with a smile that wasn’t quite a smile, and then lowered his head and said word-by-word, “Why did the shaking get worse?”
He stared at her with his pitch-black eyes and then said in a low and hoarse voice——
The heat of his breath following the words brushed against her ice-cold ears. It was obviously said in a mocking tone, but for some reason, when it fell into her ears, it carried hints of indulgence and pampering. Su Qiuge’s breathing tensed and she couldn’t bear it anymore as she directly pushed him away and whispered, “That person seems to have left, let’s go out and take a look.”
Xie Xinglin was pushed back by her hands and had to take a step back. He glanced down at her, a dark color flashing in the depths of his eyes, and the curve at the corner of his lips appeared somewhat displeased.
But he didn’t say anything. Instead, he unhurriedly and calmly took his jacket off and directly threw it at Su Qiuge, “Wear it if you’re cold.”
Su Qiuge received the jacket and was about to say thank you when she heard him expressionlessly say, “After all, it’s quite annoying watching you constantly shake.”
When Su Qiuge walked out of the curtain while zipping up the jacket, Xie Xinglin’s gaze faintly changed. His line of sight couldn’t help but stay on her body for a moment longer than usual.
The jacket was very wide and spacious on her, so only her pale white fingertips were exposed, and the length even reached her knees. It was as if a disobedient child had stolen an adult’s clothes and put it on themselves.
It was strangely cute.
