Chapter 70: Nothing to Me
When the car once again stopped at the entrance of A College, Xin Siyue started to become confused.
After making herself clear and saying what she wanted, Chen Sinan’s demeanor had a hint of gloom. But what really surprised Xin Siyue was that he immediately told his assistant to turn the car around and send her back.
Xin Siyue was puzzled. After causing all this trouble, what was he planning? She couldn’t imagine what he was thinking at all.
As the car came to a stop by the entrance, Chen Sinan simply observed Xin Siyue for a while. She was sitting near the window and staring into space as if nothing had happened. He didn’t even know what she was thinking. As he watched her out of the corner of his eye, he couldn’t help but feel restless. “What’s going on? Now you don’t want to get out?” he chided.
“Hmm?” Xin Siyue replied passively.
Chen Sinan did his best to control his temper, allowing only a spark in his eyes as he said sarcastically, “You asked for all of this, so I hope you won’t regret it later.”
“What is there for me to regret?” Xin Siyue couldn’t resist the urge to smile.
“You’d better not.“ Chen Sinan spoke coldly. “Whether or not I stay in A City, and how long I do stay is my choice. You have no right to interfere. You’re nothing to me, Xin Siyue.”
Xin Siyue looked at him without even blinking; then flashed another faint smile. Opening the door, she replied calmly, “I never wanted to be anything to you.”
She said it softly, but Chen Sinan still heard everything.
Xin Siyue didn’t turn back to see his expression. ‘This man has issues!’ she complained to herself as the car drove away.
When she read the novel, her first impressions of each character was that they were all… unique, in their own way. But now that she was randomly involved in their world, she had come to realize that they were all much more eccentric than she ever would have expected!
At first, she simply thought that the male lead was an imposing person. If she were to name her biggest problem with his character, it was probably that he was too heartless and too cruel in his approach to everything…
But at that moment, Xin Siyue thought he was extraordinary in a different sense. If she kept her distance, he’d be unhappy, so he occasionally felt the need to appear in front of her simply to annoy her.
What a pain!
As she walked into her college, Xin Siyue prayed silently. “Please let him behave in a way that keeps everyone happy.”
He was smart, and she had made herself very clear, so he would understand. Since he was young, a seemingly infinite stream of girls had fawned over him at every step. Though he sought her out nearly a dozen times, it was likely because he was only boredーhe wanted to find someone to entertain him. But Xin Siyue never thought she was special in any way, especially not in a way that would make him attracted to her.
She earnestly prayed that they would never interact again.
And on the way back, she prayed for Assistant Wang too.
After she left, he was the one that would have to live with the storm brewing in his boss’s expression
Meanwhile, Assistant Wang sarcastically thanked Ms. Xin in secret. His boss was a glacier, but she somehow managed to make him even colder. How could he survive until they arrived at Chen Sinan’s abode?
After some consideration, he asked, “Mr. Chen, shall we return to the hotel orー”
Chen Sinan held his temper in, and coldly said, “Go back to Shengjin City.”
Assistant Wang was so shocked that he talked aloud without a second thought. “Weren’t you planning to stay in City A for a few more days? And…”
Just as Assistant Wang was about to begin his next sentence, his mouth sealed itself at the sight of Chen Sinan’s eyes. He was being given a very clear warning.
“My apologies, Mr. Chen. I spoke out of line,” Assistant Wang hastily apologized.
Chen Sinan didn’t say anything, only pressing his lips together in response.
Assistant Wang didn’t dare speak anymore, but he was still curious. How could Mr. Chen simply leave? Was he going to forget Ms. Xin? Did he come all the way to A City just to briefly talk with her?
Assistant Want had gone through the trouble of fixing his travel schedule, but it was all for naught. Assistant Wang held a moment of silence for himself, grieving at the thought of having to revise the schedule again.
In her happiness, she decided to accompany Gu Tong back, and the two unexpectedly ran into Xia Qiao on the road.
