After Transmigration, The Male Lead and I had a HE - Chapter 161
Xie Xinglin carried his bag on one shoulder, his expression cold as he walked out the door.
Su Qiuge felt a gust of cold wind coming from behind her. At the same time, Su Yuanzhou noticed Xie Xinglin and immediately pulled Su Qiuge, who was blocking the door, behind him, protecting her with his arms. With hostile eyes, he watched Xie Xinglin with great vigilance.
Xie Xinglin locked eyes with him.
He’s always been too lazy to care about Su Yuanzhou.
Even if this person often tries to provoke him, just like Su Qiuge before, it means nothing and looks ridiculous to him.
But when he walked out today, he lowered his eyes and gave Su Yuanzhou a look.
At that moment, Su Yuanzhou only caught a glimpse of Xie Xinglin’s stern jaw, and the fleeting threatening look in his eyes.
He felt a strong sense of provocation from it, like the nature of male animals to maintain their territory.
Su Yuanzhou cursed internally. Originally, he wanted to talk shit about him behind his back, but he didn’t know what to say, so he could only courteously ask about Xie Xinglin’s parents.
Su Qiuge, who witnessed all this, remained silent. She knew that the two of them never got along. She was used to seeing this scene. Seeing that Su Qiuge didn’t want to acknowledge Su Yuanzhou at all, Gao Jing changed the subject, “Let’s go, it’s getting late.”
It was after Xie Xinglin had walked far away that he realized what kind of stupid thing he had just done.
Holding his schoolbag expressionlessly, he encountered Han Ming, who was looking for him.
Han Ming obviously didn’t notice that there was something wrong with Xie Xinglin at the moment. He walked over to him, “Yang told us to go to the Internet cafe. Let’s go, we can play and get money.”
Xie Xinglin didn’t talk to him, but Han Ming couldn’t bear his curiosity anymore. He remembered the endless phone call and leaned over to ask Xie Xinglin, “Hey Xing, the heart-throbbing girl you mentioned last time…is she from our school? ?”
“Which class? Can you tell me?”
It was probably best to avoid this topic. Xie Xinglin swept Hang Ming’s hand off his shoulder, raised his eyes slightly, and said dully, “No.”
Han Ming: “Huh?”
Xie Xinglin’s expression was cold. He said lightly, “There is no such person.”
Han Ming chased after him, still confused, “What? Was the person who called me in the middle of the night a few days ago and asked me to analyze his love problems a ghost?”
Who knew that Xie Xinglin would let out a sigh, glanced at him all around, then said blankly, “How do you know he’s not?”
Han Ming remembered Xie Xinglin’s question that night, it didn’t seem like he was joking. Hang Ming was puzzled: “No, was there really not a girl who made your heart flutter?”
Xie Xinglin lowered his eyes and quickened his pace to leave him behind purposefully.
Those are all just illusions that she brought into his life.
Just stay away from her.
It was very late when she came back from the Yang family on Friday. The driver of the Yang family drove her back, which made her feel a little more favorable towards the family.
Su Qiuge originally thought that Mr. Yang was only interested in his precious grandson, Su Yuanzhou. Who knew that today, Mr. Yang was holding Su Yuanzhou’s hand while chatting with her, asking her if her study was stressful, how her life was, and if she was short of money. She was rather flattered.
She could see the old man’s concern for his grandchildren. No matter how shrewd people are, when they get old, they will want their descendants to be dependent on and trust them. Even Su Yuanzhou, who has always been reluctant to cooperate, is not mean enough to reject the old man’s kindness.
It’s just that Su Qiuge can see that apart from the old man in the Yang family, basically no one welcomes the siblings back home.
In the past few days, Jia Hesheng started practicing competition questions with Su Qiuge. Xie Xinglin came by less and less, basically once every two weeks. This week was the second week, the date they settled on meeting.
It’s just… Xie Xinglin seems to be a little abnormal recently.
No matter how slow Su Qiuge is, she can still detect the indifference and alienation of her tablemate.
Xie Xinglin didn’t even look at her when he was talking about the question. She made a tentative joke, but the person didn’t raise his head or say anything, leaving her in the lingering awkwardness.
She was quite puzzled. Has Xie Xinglin ever regarded her as a friend? When it comes down to it, they’ve been through some stuff together in the past before. Why didn’t the relationship end?
Could it be that…he was still thinking about what she had done to him before?
His facial features were born sharp and cold, and when he had no expression, he seemed even more brumal and difficult to approach. Su Qiuge was down, so she did not take anymore initiative to speak.
After the tutoring time passed, Xie Xinglin left on time.
Not long after he left, Su Qiuge went to the balcony to collect her clothes, and suddenly found that the sky outside had gotten a lot darker at some point. The blanket of dark clouds was charging toward her. It didn’t take long for the sky to start drizzling.
Then, there was an afternoon rainstorm warning on her phone.
She suddenly remembered that Xie Xinglin didn’t bring an umbrella when he came. He just left, and this community was quite far from the subway station.
Because of Xie Xinglin’s attitude today, she at first didn’t want to do anything about it. But when the muffled thunder roared outside, she was reminded of that rainy day, when he brought her back, himself drenched by the rain.
Whatever, let’s just treat it as paying back a favor.
There is only one rain umbrella in Su Qiuge’s house, and the others are sunshades umbrellas.
