Chapter 16: Ji Yi
Xin Siyue didn’t bother mind her encounter with Chen Sinan that day since right after returning, her first priority was to quickly find the person in charge of the dancing and singing competition. She needed to forfeit as soon as possible.
Apparently, the Student Council was in charge of holding this contest. President Ji Yi was a third-year university student who coincidentally studied in the same field as Chen Sinan.
Upon hearing her desire to forfeit, President Ji Yi’s face wrinkled in confusion. “Sister Xin, everything’s been going well up to now. Why do you want to forfeit?”
Xin Siyue looked back at his perplexed eyes and gave a vague answer: “I’ve been busy these days so there’s no time for me to participate.”
Ji Yi didn’t plan to let her off just yet. “I still remember when you boldly stated that you were going to claim first prize.”
“Haha,” Xin Siyue smiled, not wanting to explain any further. “Anyways, I don’t want to join this contest anymore. I’m here to talk to the one in charge of this competition. Even if you don’t agree, I have no choice.”
Then, just as she was about to walk away, she heard Ji Yi comment: “Turns out Sister Xin’s isn’t the kind of person who keeps her promises.”
Xin Siyue kept silent as she thought to herself privately: ‘No matter, it’s not like I was the one who promised.’
When Ji Yi saw no reaction from her, he had to use Chen Sinan’s name. “Are you afraid that you would embarrass yourself in front of Senior Chen if you encounter him during the competition?”
“It’s none of your business.”
Ji Yi was even more interested in the topic. “Isn’t it true that you love Senior Chen so much that you would hover between life and death for him? Why would you give up after just one year of chasing him?”
XIn Siyue couldn’t help but roll her eyes as she thought to herself: ‘In more than a year, even a cold stone should’ve warmed up under the sun.’
She replied lazily, “It’s because I’ve already stopped by the edge of the abyss, and now I’ve turned around and made my way back to the shore. Didn’t you say that I loved him so much that I even hovered between life and death? I’ve already died once. If I still don’t change my mind, wouldn’t it be no different from seeking death one more time?”
Ji Yi was choked by her words. He didn’t know how to retort. Although he had many chances to speak to Xin Siyue, he had never heard that she was a person with a sharp tongue!
Ji Yi squinted and observed her for a while before continuing, “Even if you change yourself for Senior Chen’s sake, he still won’t pay attention to you. Senior Sister Shen was such a perfect school girl, but she only received bits of Senior Chen’s appreciation. She never even got to earn the official title as his girlfriend. But looking at your sincere face that shows no desire, it shows that you know when to withdraw when facing difficulty. If you happen to win Senior Chen’s heart, I’ll admire you sincerely.”
Xin Siyue’s lips twitched in annoyance as she replied, “Thanks for the reminder.
‘The heck! It’s the first time that we’ve met and yet you’re acting as if you know my mind! We obviously had no interaction before!’
Ji Yi appeared several times in the novel, but after the supporting female character left the campus, this man won’t have any roles left, right?
Xin Siyue looked down on shameless people like him.
She clearly said she wanted to forfeit, and yet this man was so bored that he went after her at the library and at her dorm, just so he could convince her again and again to join the competition.
After Xin Siyue left the library, she headed straight for the cafeteria, while Ji Yi chased after her. Just when she got in line to get her meal, Ji Yi stuck beside her like a minion, trying to brainwash her to join. “Just take part in the contest. You’ll have a chance to see Senior Chen! You know, I even spent a lot of time to persuade him to be a judge at the competition.”
“That has nothing to do with me.”
“It won’t be any fun if you don’t join.”
Upon hearing this, Xin Siyue gave him a sarcastic smile. “You’re wasting time persuading me to join just so you can add oil to the flames and catch more attention?”
In this university, she was infamous for persistently chasing after Chen Sinan. Moreover, Senior Chen will be at the competition, so more people will be coming to watch the fun. And those girls who had crushes on this male god, but were too shy to voice out their feelings, will be using Xin Siyue to probe Chen Sinan’s mind.
No matter what, watching the contest will only bring them more benefits than harm.
