Chapter 96: Cliff (4)
Even though Ye Xi was sure that Wei Shenglan didn’t understand this, however, since she had seen it often on the net, she couldn’t help but feel a little strange. And so, she went silent again.
Wei Shenglan had yet to let go of Ye Xi’s hand. At this moment, when he heard Ye Xi’s thoughts, he abruptly paused. He was so shocked that he subconsciously tightened his grip considerably.
But Ye Xi didn’t realize this. She was still thinking about how weird it was.
Even she herself didn’t understand the reason why her mind had gone blank at this very moment, nor as to why she couldn’t find any words to say. She couldn’t understand why the moon looked so beautiful, or why the voices of the old men gradually disappeared right now.
It was as if she had taken a shot of alcohol.
Her mind felt really dizzy.
This had to be because of the protagonist’s aura.
Ye Xi quickly regained her senses.
But even so, she still looked at the group of oldies in silence.
At this moment, one of the old people turned around and met Ye Xi’s gaze.
The two of them locked eyes for a short while. The old man then turned around to his fellow seniors at his side and said, “Tsk! Tsk! Kids these days sure are open with dating one another. We were so conservative back in those olden days. We’d be bashful for the entire day if we so much as looked at each other!”
The other old men also looked at Ye Xi and Wei Shenglan when they heard this, shortly after, they began chattering to each other.
Wei Shenglan had always been a shy person, but he was used to having a dense facial expression. At this time, even though he was confused by this sudden flurry of panic, joy, and bashful emotions, he still kept a straight face on as he pulled Ye Xi away.
Since Ye Xi had also wanted to leave this area, she simply followed him.
While holding their hands together, Wei Shenglan and Ye Xi both left. They walked like this all the way until they reached her room.
“I want to go to bed.” Ye Xi slightly shook her hand, hinting for him to let go.
“Okay.” Wei Shenglan did as she insinuated and released his grasp.
“See you.” After saying this, Ye Xi quickly turned around and left.
In contrast to their intimate atmosphere, Bing Yiyi nearly felt angered to death. But at the same time, she was also very sad.
She was clearly extremely loyal to Wei Shenglan, despite this, he betrayed her and fell in love with someone else.
Bing Yiyi was extremely angry due to this.
She swore to never forgive them.
Bing Yiyi almost made up her mind.
But immediately after, she also wondered if she should give them a chance.
Hence, Bing Yiyi decided to observe them again, and gave Ye Xi the chance to turn back.
In the next few days, Ye Xi would constantly be bothered by various annoying things. For example, the cab she called had said that they forgot to refuel and got stuck on the road. The others also had various reasons such as having gone the wrong way somehow, or just that they suddenly remembered they had to go home for their daughter’s birthday…
Every day, a sense of crisis in Ye Xi’s heart was gradually increasing. What was terrifying wasn’t the chance of her encountering any villain, nor even the possibility of meeting a lot of them, this was even more so on the likelihood of intersecting their paths in places where there were lakes and mountains all over the place. Instead, it was the fact that she was trapped in one area.
In all the horror stories, love stories, or thrillers she has read… In short, in all the stories when they prolong their stay in one place, it definitely meant that something was going to happen, this wasn’t a good thing at all.
She might even die here.
Moreover, the most important thing right now was the fact that Wei Shenglan had been seemingly very weird these days. He would often bring her food and wait for her to finish eating before telling her that he was the one who made it.
No wonder it tasted so bad.
But whether it tasted good or not wasn’t the point. The important point was the fact that this person actually cooked and brought the food for her. He would even embarrassingly ask her if it was delicious.
This was getting dangerous.
Right now, all Ye Xi wanted to do was to leave this place filled with bad luck.
In Wei Shenglan’s room, Nan Gonghai invited himself inside.
While Wei Shenglan was searching for dating strategies online, Nan Gonghai suddenly appeared out of nowhere, it made him almost drop his laptop on the ground.
He shut his laptop and looked at Nan Gonghai, asking him, “Do you need something?”
Nan Gonghai nodded in response. He then sat on the sofa chair by the bed and said, “There’s a meteor shower happening tonight. I’m planning to go and watch it with Shangguan Xi and the boys. What about you? Do you want to invite Ye Xi as well?”
A meteor shower… The rumors said that if you make a wish during a meteor shower, then your wish will come true.
If this was before, then Wei Shenglan would definitely not believe in something like this. But right now, he felt a little moved at Nan Gonghai’s consideration.
And so, Wei Shenglan nodded and responded back, “Got it.”
Then, he turned on his laptop and began reading up on things again.
After about a minute later, Wei Shenglan looked over to Nan Gonghai and wondered about something, he asked the latter, “What’re you still standing there for?”
Nan Gonghai felt wronged right now. “Aren’t you even going to offer me a drink?”
“No thanks,” Wei Shenglan’s response was curt and short, “You can go now.”
At night, after charging her power bank, she began wondering to herself. How could she get out of here?
Before she could figure it out, someone knocked on her door. For now, she put this matter aside and walked to the entrance, opening it. Wei Shenglan was waiting outside.
Ye Xi had a sudden realization!
She was someone with the protagonist’s aura while Wei Shenglan had the male lead’s aura, plus a car. What’s better was that he also knew how to drive.
