Chapter 67: Return (1)
Although Ye Xi had roasted Wei Shenglan for a while and he was immune to it, he couldn’t help but feel a bit awkward from such an awkward boasting scene.
There were one or two days per year where his ability would be out of his control. He would be able to control himself during the other times. Ever since he heard the strange voices in Ye Xi’s brain, he continued to listen to her thoughts, perhaps because he thought it was unusual or suspicious.
Now, he couldn’t help but wonder whether he had made a dumb decision.
Even more strange voices appeared in Ye Xi’s brain.
Wei Shenglan couldn’t take this anymore. He looked at Ye Xi and said, “Let’s go.”
“Oh, right.” Ye Xi remembered that she had to go.
“Where are you going?” Wei Shenglan asked and left the training room with her.
“I’m going to find the teacher.”
“To tell him that I won’t be attending the sports competition.”
“Uncle Wang.” Wei Shenglan turned around to look at the old man in a suit.
Uncle Wang nodded and said, “I will arrange this.”
Wei Shenglan said to Ye Xi, “You don’t need to find the teacher.”
Whoa. Is this the Uncle housekeeper who could handle anything given to him within two days?
Ye Xi hummed then secretly glanced at the old man called Uncle Wang. He was indeed the famous Uncle housekeeper. Even his surname was meaningful.
‘I’m not yours,’ Wei Shenglan denied in annoyance, although it was sweet. Wei Shenglan’s ears secretly turned red. At this time, the so-called ‘dumb decision’ was no longer dumb; he now considered it a wise decision.
“Um…” Wei Shenglan felt like he should say something but didn’t know what.
Ye Xi looked at him and said, “What?”
Wei Shenglan’s ears turned redder. He stuttered and eventually said, “Come to my place to play computer games.”
“Ok.” Ye Xi agreed.
Although Wei Shenglan didn’t like to play games, he was happy when he saw her cute and well-behaved look.
The two left together while Uncle Wang walked behind them.
Out of habit, Ye Xi would subconsciously slow down and wait for Uncle Wang to catch up. What angered her was that once she slowed down, Wei Shenglan would too and then Uncle Wang as well.
Therefore, they walked slower and slower. They finally walked out of the gym after a while.
Upon walking out of the gym, Ye Xi deeply sighed. She told herself to get used to this.
She sped up and walked in her usual pace.
But after a few minutes, she subconsciously slowed down again.
Wei Shenglan suddenly stopped and turned to Uncle Wang, saying, “Go back. There’s nothing going on here.”
“Ok.” Uncle Wang yawned and looked at Ye Xi before leaving. She looked back at him too.
Ye Xi felt as if he laughed but it was too soft and quick. She couldn’t tell.
Uncle Wang went straight out of the school door. He got in the car, dialed a number, and after the phone rang three times, it was answered. Uncle Wang said respectfully, “Hello, Lady. Good afternoon.”
“Why did you call at this time? Is there something wrong with Xiao Lan?”
Uncle Wang said seriously, “Yes, Lady.”
Her voice became colder all of a sudden. “What’s the matter?”
Uncle Wang said expressionlessly, “Mr. Lan is in love.”
After a long period of silence, she asked, “Are you sure?”
“Yes, and it’s one-sided love. It’s quite tiring to be young.” Uncle Wang said and revealed a look of reminisce.
“Prepare the girl’s information.”
Uncle Wang hung up and called someone else. “Hey, Xiao Hai. Good afternoon.”
“Uncle Wang, you must’ve seen Ye Xi already since you’re calling now. Right?”
“Yes, I’ll leave her information up to you. You would probably give complete information about her to me right.”
“Of course. After all, we’ve known each other for so many years.”
“Ok.” Uncle Wang hung up and called someone else. He wasn’t polite this time, and was even a bit indifferent. “Give me information on Z High School Class A’s Ye Xi tonight.”
After he hung up, he looked at the school door one last time before driving off.
When there was only Ye Xi and Wei Shenglan, they clearly walked much quicker. The two arrived at a F4 style luxurious dorm.
Coincidentally, Nang Gonghai and the rest were there, so everyone played together.
The five played the entire afternoon. Ye Xi felt the need to see how An Mudie was doing with training, so she closed the laptop and left early.
On the way to the gym, Ye Xi suddenly had an idea. She realized something really important!
She hadn’t eaten fried chicken or something like that in a very long time!
Therefore, Ye Xi went down a corner and walked to the school door.
Normally, there were all sorts of fried food stores like KFC outside the school.
Ye Xi got out of school and as expected, saw a KFC across the school. The name was unconventional. It was called “XX KFC!” The exclamation point was part of the store name.
“Hello. I want two grilled wings and two coke and four custard tarts.” Considering how An Mudie couldn’t eat too much junk food, she didn’t order much.
