Chapter 215: What About Chen Sinan? What About the Baby? (3)
After seeing that she was receiving no news even after a week had passed, Xin Siyue was forced to send in her resume to a company as a clerk. After the interview, her admission notice quickly arrived.
When she first began working there, Xin Siyue found a small children’s training center not toofar from her workplace that happened to be recruiting dance teachers. Xin Siyue spent more than two weeks working hard to strengthen her body and working up her basic dance skills. Unexpectedly, she received great praise when she went in for the interview. After discussing with the person in charge and signing the contract, she walked through the bustling streets with a black umbrella in her hand and her heart feeling heavy.
Everything that happened today was nothing more than confirmation that what she went through in that book was all true.
She had learned how to dance, she learned how to host, and she even had people she once loved.
Even if she wanted all of that back, she had nowhere to begin.
Xin Siyue felt like a lonely wandering soul in this world without any sense of direction.
In front of the crossroads, the red numbers lit up. Just like the countless others waiting with her, she stared before her in a daze.
Who knows how many times those blurry numbers changed as Xin Siyue suddenly looked up, she noticed a bookstore at the right-hand side of the intersection in front. The glass doors of the store were closed and opened again. After opening again, the door was shut again by the person who just left.
The green numbers had already appeared for some time and someone suddenly bumped into her from behind. She quickly stabilized herself and came back to her senses. When she looked up again, her eyes were right on that bookstore. Then, moving her legs, she quickly strolled towards the store.
Even after searching for a long time, Xin Siyue couldn’t find the book. After asking the clerk and finding out that “Confident Wife of the President” wasn’t sold there, her eyes dimmed for a few seconds. Then, she turned sharply and headed for the next bookstore.
All the way until night time, she visited bookstore after bookstore. But unfortunately, all the shops told her, “Sorry, our store doesn’t carry that book.”
Xin Siyue headed back dazedly to the small apartment where they were staying. Mother Xin was weaving something underneath the dim light.
“Mom, why don’t you turn on a brighter light?”
“I can see fine, don’t worry. This is more energy-efficient.”
Xin Siyue suddenly felt a sour taste in her mouth. Slowly, after that choking feeling disappeared, she spoke, “Mom, your eyes aren’t good, you should stop.”
“I’m fine.” Mother Xin stood up and was just about to ask whether she had eaten and suggested heating up some food, but she noticed that her clothes were half-drenched. She quickly asked, “Why are you wet? Didn’t you bring your umbrella?”
Xin Siyue lied. “The rain was a bit heavy.”
Mother Xin quickly handed her a towel. “If the rain is too big next time then you can just come home a bit later. You just recovered, what are you going to do if you get sick again?”
Xin Siyue forced herself to put on a smile. “Alright, I’ll remember that next time. I’ll go take a shower first, mom.”
Xin Siyue went back into her room, and after shutting the door, she let her body slide down to the ground like a sunken pit and her eyes were empty.
They didn’t have the book…
None of them did…
Could that really have been all just a dream?
Xin Siyue suddenly thought of something and quickly went on Baidu to search up the title…
Then, when she saw the familiar names of the male and female lead, as well as the supporting characters in the summary, she couldn’t stop her tears from flowing down.
