Unable to Divorce After Signing the Marriage Contract - Chapter 1.1
Discussing About Marriage (1)
As the weather turned colder, Yan Garden gradually settled down from its rich greenery. When the autumn breeze rose, the ginkgo trees swayed lightly with the wind, rippling out in radiant golden waves – it painted the whole campus like a thick and dappled oil painting.
The medical school was located on the northeast side of the campus. When the bell rang between classes, the atmosphere in the quiet and serious classrooms loosened up, and students talked in twos and threes, basically about the upcoming midterm exams.
Someone raised their voice and asked the professor sitting by the podium, “Teacher, what is the focus of our midterm exam this time?”
The teacher who was holding a thermal cup and slowly taking sips of hot tea smiled kindly: “Excluding the preface, everything else is the focus.”
Suddenly the classroom was filled with sounds of wailing.
The four people in dorm 404 sat in the same row, and it was really hard to restrain the urge to make a sarcastic comment.
“As long as the major is well chosen, the finals are like the college entrance exams every year. And now it’s not even the end of the semester yet!”
The dormitory boss, Zhen Ling, sighed. Although he’s the oldest out of the four, he had a baby face that made him look otherwise. He casually flipped through his notes with his face scrunched up. He then turned his head to ask the second oldest at the neighboring table, “Bo’er, how many chapters are included in the exam for Internal Medicine IV?”
“Old Liu mentioned it during the last class, but I don’t remember.” The male in question pushed up his glasses and relayed the query to the next table for help, “He He, do you remember?”
Known as the dormitory memo, Lin Yu He did not disappoint them: “Thirteen chapters.”
“Oh right.” Once he heard the answer, Zhen Ling somehow managed to recover some scattered memories, “Surgery IV is also until the thirteenth chapter right?”
Lin Yu He shook his head: “Fifteen.”
The second brother frowned: “How come there’s so many? I thought only the pathology test was fifteen chapters.”
Lin Yu He let loose a chuckle, but it sounded as if he was enjoying the adversity: “In fact, Anatomy III is also until the fifteenth chapter.”
Zhen Ling grabbed his hair, simply on the verge of having a mental breakdown: “Why so many!?! I can’t even remember the scope of the test, how will I even take this test!?!”
The second brother also slumped on the table: “As the saying goes – physiology and biochemical, there must be one that will be dropped. Pathology and pathogenesis, crisis everywhere …… Calm down, calm down, I choose to give up.”
Lin Yu He looked at them both in amusement, and shook his head: “Later I’ll put together all the scope from the eleven subjects then send it to the dormitory group chat.”
The two people immediately changed their mouths and shed tears of gratitude: “He He, Brother He! You are my life-saver!”
The three were chatting when two girls walked over, one of them was even the department flower with goddess-like visuals. Standing next to the table of the three, the department flower smoothed her long, slightly curly, fluffy hair, and between the movements, the sweet smell of eau de toilette wafted in leisurely.
She placed the two notebooks in her hands on the table and pushed them in front of Lin Yu He. She pursed her lips, and a shallow dimple appeared at the corner of her lips: “Yu He, thank you for the notes.”
Lin Yu He accepted the notes and smiled, “You’re welcome.”
He actually had the kind of very eye-catching charming looks, and the gorgeousness even held some sharpness to it. Coupled with his cold white complexion, he stood out in the crowd, and looked all the more difficult to approach.
However, he had a gentle personality, and equally gentle temperament. Only then did he manage to conceal much of the ‘offensive power’ or ‘danger’ from his looks, and thus people dared to approach him.
Even now, his smile made everyone face increasing difficulty in suppressing their hearts.
The department flower blushed a little, muttered a short sentence, “Your writing is very beautiful”, and hurriedly left while dragging her friend along.
When the two girls walked further away while exchanging whispers and giggles among themselves, Zhen Ling, who had been watching the whole exchange, quietly reached out and poked Lin Yu He, and couldn’t help but gossip: “Hey He He, is the department flower interested in you?”
Lin Yu He, who was looking for a paper to list down the exam scope, was confused when he heard the question: “What? Probably not, she only borrowed the notes for pediatrics from me.”
“The grades of the department flower at top ten still needed to borrow notes?”
Zhen Ling did not believe this, he felt that Lin Yu He lacked enlightenment.
“Borrowing notes is the most commonly used pick-up technique!”
Lin Yu He lowered his head to begin writing, his handwriting was clear and elegant. To Zhen Ling’s teasing, he didn’t even bother to lift his head: “Then how many times have you flirted with me?”
“I’m different, I’m a straight man.” The corner of Zhen Ling’s lips twitched, and he even emphasized on the pronunciation of “straight man”.
Due to the harmonic sound of the name and that baby face appearance, Zhen Ling had constantly been misunderstood by many people about his sexuality. The numerous times he tried to date all ended up with the girls treating him as a girlfriend, which left him with some traumatic experience, so he was quite concerned about this kind of thing and would deliberately emphasize it every time.
Lin Yu He smiled, but he ignored the others to continue writing.
Right when he finished writing the examination scope, a commotion occurred at the classroom’s backdoor. Lin Yu He casually threw a glance to the back and met eyes with an excited face.
“Senior! Senior Lin!”
It was a girl with a slightly unfamiliar face, excitedly waving at him. Although her voice was deliberately lowered, it still could not hide her happiness.
Lin Yu He was a little surprised, but still got up and went to the back door. When he came back, he had a carefully packed umbrella in his hand and a Starbucks’ paper bag with the aroma of coffee.
Bo’er casually asked, “Who was that?”
Lin Yu He put the paper bag on the table: “A junior who came to return the umbrella.”
As a token of appreciation, a cup of coffee was also presented.
Zhen Ling held his chin while looking at him and gave a meaningful “oh”: “I almost forgot, borrowing an umbrella seems to be a good way to strike up a conversation too.”
“No, it’s just a junior I met in the library.” Lin Yu He felt somewhat helpless, and explained, “Last time it rained when the library was closed. Coincidentally Hui Xi had an umbrella when they came to find me, so I lent her the extra umbrella.”
Zhen Ling grinned cheekily and said, “Sure, taking pleasure in helping others.”
“But actually there’s not much use in hitting on someone,” he put on a solemn and pious expression, “Our He He’s lover is studying.”
Bo’er also nodded along: “He He is not interested in love, only in studying. The last time our senior sister used the school auditorium for her wedding, the bouquet was caught by He He. What was it that people said at that time? This bouquet won’t be able to be passed on anytime soon, because He He is bust with school so marriage is certainly out of the equation in the nearest time.”
Originally just a lame joke made by chatterboxes, but when Lin Yu He heard the word “marriage”, his expression stiffened up and the smile on his face faded away too.
While they were talking, the last member of the dorm, Shen Hui Xi, came back. He swept a glance across the paper bag on the table and asked curiously, “Didn’t you three say you weren’t going out after class, who bought this Starbucks?”
Lin Yu He said: “It was given by the junior that borrowed the umbrella last time at the library.”
Both Zhen Ling and Bo’er did not have the habit of drinking coffee, so Lin Yu He pushed the paper bag towards Shen Hui Xi and asked, “You wanna drink?”
Shen Hui Xi knew he didn’t like things with a bitter taste, so he accepted the drink smoothly.
