Chapter 10: Playing Hard to Get?
Oh his way back to his dormitory, Mao Shiyuan felt more and more indignant. Upon entering his room, he suddenly found Chen Sinan, that culprit, who rarely stayed in the dorms. Finally, he opened his mouth and said, “You were right to turn down Xin Siyue.”
Chen Sinan, who was in search of something, suddenly stopped, half bent over, then looked up at him faintly.
Mao Shiyuan didn’t have to wait for him to reply; he was already satisfied with Chen Sinan’s expression. ‘That’s right, why should he be interested about that girl?’ In fact, this was simply Mao Shiyuan’s self righteous thoughts. Chen Sinan’s first reaction when hearing the surname ‘Xin’ was trying to recall which person this roommate was talking about, up until he heard the full name, Xin Siyue.
“That Xin Siyue’s schemes are very clever. First of all, she tried to chase me and block my path every day just so she can ask for your specific cell number and address. She would talk to me and smile, then try to flatter me as if I’m her savior, but after you showed that you weren’t interested in her, she simply walked past me like I was air…”
Chen Sinan retracted his gaze and continued to search for a document. “What about her? I’m not interested at all.”
But Mao Shiyuan was curious. He leaned over the corner of the table and asked: “Do you think Xin Siyue wants to go after me this time?”
After hearing this assumption, another roommate poured a glass of water on his shorts while scolding: “Da Mao**, aren’t you jumping to conclusions? If Xin Siyue were to chase again after someone, that someone would still be Chen Sinan. So even if she was rejected by him, in conclusion, there’s still no place for you at all!”
“Go! Get out of here!” Mao Shiyuan snapped back. What upsets him most is when someone calls him ‘Da Mao.’ What was so wrong with having ‘Mao’ as his surname?
The more Mao Shiyuan thought of it, the more he couldn’t understand. “When she left, I looked at the billboard she was staring out and discovered she was staring at the contestant list for the college’s Song and Dance competition. Did she join because she found out that you would be one of the judges that day?”
Upon hearing this, Chen Sinan straightened up and considered it. If Mao Shiyuan hadn’t mentioned this matter, he would’ve completely forgotten his promise to Ji Yin that he would be one of the judges.
However, when he thought of Xin Siyue, Chen Sinan suddenly recalled a memory two weeks ago in front of the Dean’s office, when the girl said that she didn’t recognize him at all. Was that true or was she simply acting? Or was this simply her scheme of playing hard to get?
Just as he was about to think further in this direction, Chen Sinan decisively cut off this train of thought.
Why go through the trouble of thinking of this unimportant person?
On one corner, Mao Shiyuan continued to gossip: “I heard that Xin Siyue changed her major to broadcast and hosting, which is really far from our department. And since the beginning of this month, she no longer squats in front of our dormitory to bring you breakfast and midnight snacks. If these are signs that she has abandoned you, then you can also assume that…”
Chen Sinan looked at him and slowly said: “Is your Chinese at an elementary school level?”
Chen Sinan gave him that look that seems to say ‘It’s a waste of my energy to explain it to you, idiot.’
Mao Shiyuan asked in confusion, “Do you have something you wanted to say?”
The other roommate could no longer stand seeing this so he explained, “You fool, he says your language skills are poor because you’re misusing the word ‘abandoned.’ Who is Ah Nan to be abandoned, or is it your turned to be abandoned?”
(reminder: Ah Nan is Chen Sinan’s nickname)
Based on this roommate’s perspective, even if Shen Wenyang left him in the past, the two of them never had a definite relationship. One can only say that Shen Wenyang was loved too deeply by Chen Sinan that she had to leave to a faraway country.
But how can a man like Chen Sinan be someone abandoned by a woman? As long as he used his inherited handsome looks to stand out, just a finger’s movement was needed to attract bees and butterflies. Naturally, someone would end up sticking to him like glue, chasing him everywhere.
