The Lady’s Facade was Ruined - Chapter 30
Chapter 30: Brave Hero (1)
In front of the vending machine, Huo Cheng was still holding the cup of pickled pepper beef-flavored instant noodles, “Why did you come down and buy water by yourself?”
Shen Wanying controlled her facial muscles well and smiled at Huo Cheng, “I sprained my foot, but it’s not good to trouble other students to help me with everything. The hotel has an elevator so I don’t need to walk that much.”
Huo Cheng nodded his head slightly. He looked at her and said, “We will have dinner in a while. Don’t go back to your room. Just sit here for a while.”
“Sure.” Shen Wanying was too lazy to return to her room so she easily agreed.
Huo Cheng helped her to go to the pavilion outside to sit down and rest. The pavilion was very clean. As they sat leisurely at the edge of the pavilion, they could see all kinds of kites flying high up in the air.
Despite the beautiful kites dancing about in the sky, Shen Wanying couldn’t spare much thought towards watching them now. She was only eyeing the instant noodles that Huo Cheng had put aside.
Her heart was disturbed.
She didn’t know why Huo Cheng had said that earlier. Does he really have a friend who likes to eat instant noodles while shaking his leg, moreover he also eats beef flavored with pickled peppers? How can there be such a coincidence in the world?
But if not, from where did he know this?
It was the biggest secret in Shen Wanying’s life: she liked to eat instant noodles while shaking her leg.
Thinking of this, she remembered the BL novel that Huo Cheng saw last time.
He somehow accepted it so calmly. Isn’t it strange in itself?
However, these things weren’t what she worried about the most. Her biggest dilemma now was that she felt that her image in front of Huo Cheng had been completely ruined. As if she stood in front of him like a person without any clothes.
…Wait, what yellow1Pornographic garbage is she thinking about?
“What’s the matter?” Noticing Shen Wanying’s silence, Huo Cheng called her.
“Nothing.” Shen Wanying subconsciously denied, taking up the water bottle in her hand with the intention of taking a sip.
The bottle cap was unscrewed easily.
Shen Wanying was taken aback for a moment. She realized that when Huo Cheng handed her the bottle of water, he had also helped her to unscrew the bottle cap.
Something subtle was growing in Shen Wanying’s heart. Speaking of which, the bottle of water he’d given her was also the bottle she originally wanted to buy.
Huo Cheng knew her tastes well.
But those seemed to be of little importance. He knew some of her secrets which nobody knew, but he didn’t ridicule her or mention it to others. She could feel that Huo Cheng cared about her very much.
Although this might be due to their childhood.
“When my foot is better, I also want to find some time to fly a kite.” Shen Wanying raised her head, looking at the kites in the sky, a smile forming on her lips.
Huo Cheng also followed her gaze and looked at the kites, “En, I’ll accompany you.”
“Okay.” Shen Wanying said. Then, she pointed her finger to a kite in the distance, “Look, that dragon kite seems to be Ji Yao’s kite. This kind of kite is not easy to fly. I didn’t expect Ji Yao to fly such a kite so well.”
Huo Cheng knitted his brows and asked Shen Wanying, “You seem to really care about Ji Yao?”
Shen Wanying chuckled twice, “Yes, a little bit.”
The arc on the corner of Huo Cheng’s mouth straightened a little. He wanted to ask her if she liked Ji Yao, but in the end, he held it back.
Not long after, it was time for dinner. The students eventually gathered in the dining room one after another. The performance of the evening show was arranged in the dining room. The students who were performing would take turns in going up. After they finished their performance, they would step down for dinner.
In this type of performance, as usual, most of the students chose to sing a song as their performance. Although the students had different levels of singing ability, everyone cheered them on. When it came to pushing the whole audiences’ mood to the highest amount of excitement, it was thanks to the joint skit presented by Zhao Yimeng and other grade two class members.
The story of the skit was very clichéd, but the students who performed it were so funny. In addition, the identity of their class members made such a contrast that even the teacher smiled from ear to ear.
After Zhao Yimeng finished her performance and came back down. She appeared gloomy, “I’m done. From today on, my legendary reputation has been ruined!”
After all, why did she agree to participate in this skit in the first place!
Shen Wanying smiled and looked at her, “Why, I think you performed well just now. I saw Ji Yao laugh when you performed.”
“Really?” After all, Ji Yao is Zhao Yimeng’s first male god. When the male god laughed, she was happy for two seconds, and then became even more depressed than before. “It doesn’t seem to be a good thing, right?”
In the end, the skit she disliked so much was voted as the first-place winner in tonight’s performance by everyone.
Zhao Yimeng liked bringing up the set of test papers that were personally selected by the teachers from each subject. Zhao Yimeng smiled as she went on about them.
After returning to the room, Shen Wanying recalled it and thought that it was funny. Zhao Yimeng had turned her grief and anger into appetite. She took apart all the snacks she had brought and called out Shen Wanying to eat and catch up on some drama together.
The two of them stayed in the room, but there were other students who were still wandering outside.
Fang Yichang called over Wang Tingting and Qiu Ziqing who were about to return to the hotel. He looked at them and commented, “There are too many people during the day, and I couldn’t find a chance to ask you. Today, Shen Wanying was injured. Did you do it on purpose?”
Qiu Ziqing didn’t say a word. Wang Tingting took the lead in lashing out with indignance, “Fang Yichang, why do you say that? We have heaven watching. Is it even possible to plan out whether she will be injured or not?”
Fang Yichang was smiling and said to her, “Is it or not on purpose? You know it in your own heart. I don’t want to say anything. I hope you will stay away from Shen Wanying in the future, otherwise don’t blame me for being impolite.”
After he finished speaking, he turned and left. Wang Tingting choked back her words for a while before ordering him to stop, “Fang Yichang, are you stupid? Can’t you see that Shen Wanying and Huo Cheng have a good relationship?”
Fang Yichang stopped and looked back at her, “What do you mean?”
Wang Tingting said, “I don’t mean anything. I just want to tell you. You like Shen Wanying and Ziqing likes Huo Cheng. Shouldn’t we work together?”
“Cooperate?” Fang Yichang took a step back, “Cooperate?”
He laughed, “Sorry, I won’t go as low as you.”
“I, Fang Yichang when he likes someone, will chase her openly and will not play tricks in secret.” He said here, with a warning, “You’d better put away those dirty little tricks of yours.”
Wang Tingting’s heart really couldn’t accept it. What happened, I suddenly took the vicious female supporting role in a drama, right?
Right now, the vicious female subordinate had been counterattacked. Even though she had suffered so much anger in one day, she wasn’t even the vicious female subordinate at all!
Just when they were thinking of this, suddenly an ear-piercing shriek was heard in the dark night.
Both Wang Tingting and Qiu Ziqing were startled, and they subconsciously shrank against the wall.
