Wei Qi felt very tormented.
At his age, both falling in love and being dumped would cause a huge impact in his life. It occupied most parts of a young man’s emotional world.
He held her hands tightly and took a few deep breaths and tried to suppress the roaring waves of pain inside him.
“Don’t make that decision so carelessly by yourself,” he said, releasing her hand and combing her bangs slightly.
She must have felt so lost, he thought. Translated by The Novelst
In these days of dating her, he had already understood her as a person very well. Because she was pursued by a lot of boys, her classmates thought she was very experienced in love, and very good at getting along with the opposite sex.
But he knew that she was a girl that had been very well-protected by her family. Her thoughts and feelings were very pure.
Wei Qi kissed her forehead softly and said, “Don’t rush to decisions. Rou Rou, you should think carefully before you speak.”
He inserted his hands into his pocket and looked at her, smiling, “There’s no rush. Just think about it slowly… No matter how long it takes…”
“I’ll wait for you.”
After that when Xia Rou would think back to the smile he had that night, she recognized a hint of the confidence that belonged to the Wei Qi in the future.
Xia Rou realized she had personally witnessed Wei Qi’s maturation and growth.
This handsome, confident young man and the smile on his face became one of the most beautiful memories in her later life.
She laid quietly on the beach of memories, and sometimes there was a sparkle.
On Friday, she tidied up her bag and waited quietly in her dorm room.
Her phone didn’t ring but the walkie-talkie above the door sounded. “Xia Rou from room 427! Xia Rou from room 427! Your brother is here to pick you up!”
Cao Yang would usually call her to come out when he arrived at the school entrance, but this time he had come straight to her dorm.
Xia Rou closed her book, lifted her bag, and headed out.
A tall man with both his hands in his pockets stood outside the window of the dorm auntie. He exuded a mature and manly aura, attracting several young girls who passed by to take a peek at him.
He was wearing casual clothing and smiling as he struck up a conversation with the hostel aunt, his smile so charming that she was nearly unable to think straight.
When he turned his head, he saw Xia Rou.
He went over to take her bag, saying, “Let’s go.” He held her hand.
Before leaving, he even smilingly said goodbye to the hostel aunt.
Tsk tsk. The aunt turned enviously to tell her colleague, “These two siblings are really close. The younger sister is so big yet they still hold hands…”
Xia Rou, held by Cao Yang, looked at his shirt. “Where did you come from?”
Usually on Friday, when he came to pick her up, he would still be in his uniform.
“Why did you change your clothes?”
“Something came up.”
Xia Rou didn’t continue to ask.
Cao Yang was smiling as he took a glance at her.
On the way there they bumped into her roommates that came back from lunch and they greeted one another.
“Hello, big brother!”
“Big brother, you’ve come to pick Xia Rou up?”
“Goodbye, big brother!”
Once Cao Yang and Xia Rou had walked far from them, they grouped up and chatted.
“Oh my gosh, he’s so handsome! Every time I see him, he gets more handsome!”
“They’re even holding hands! I’m so jealous, so jealous! I also want a handsome brother to hold my hand!”
“They look like a couple!”
“Eh, how old is her big brother?”
“Xia Rou said he’s fourteen years older than us.”
“So much older than us? It didn’t seem like it…”
Xia Rou pulled the car door open herself and sat in the passenger seat. As she went to buckle the seatbelt, she felt a breath on her.
At first, he was careful and pecked her softly, rubbing her lips. Slowly, realizing that Xia Rou wasn’t so resistant, he began to let go.
Xia Rou’s fist was against his shoulder. She couldn’t reject him but closed her eyes and let him act on his own.
It wasn’t easy as he finally released her. She opened her eyes and saw him smiling as he looked at her. Seeing her open her eyes, he lowered his head to kiss her again.
Cao Yang would of course not tell Xia Rou that the reason he brought casual clothing to his office and changed because he wanted to hold her hand and kiss her.
Wearing the uniform was too eye-catching. The military headquarters were stationed in the capital. On the road, they could regularly see the duty team on bikes driving by. Although nothing would happen to him, it was troublesome no matter what.
Though Xia Rou was not taking initiative, yet compared to her resistance to him just a week ago, it was much better.
Very well, it was a good sign.
Cao Yang didn’t ask what happened between Wei Qi and Xia Rou. This girl was the girl he had brought up, he knew very well. If she accepted him, that meant she would not accept Wei Qi any longer.
On the road, Cao Yang was in a very good mood.
Xia Rou used one elbow to support herself on the window frame, her hand supporting her cheek as she looked at the scenery outside.
The scenery was quite familiar to her.
Xia Rou recalled the kiss with Cao Yang just now…
She couldn’t help but turn around and take a glance at him.
“What’s wrong?” Cao Yang stopped the car at the intersection and held her hand.
She shook her head and continued to look out the window.
They drove into the courtyard and parked inside the garage.
After getting down from the car, she said, “Cao Yang…”
After fourteen years of knowing him, this was the first time that Xia Rou had called his name directly. It was a familiar name to her, but it was so strange to call it out.
Cao Yang raised his brows and looked at her.
Xia Rou walked closer to him, tiptoed, and kissed him.
A hint of a smile immediately blossomed on Cao Yang’s face and he held her waist tightly. This time he didn’t go wild, but was very gentle.
Xia Rou closed her eyes. Translated by The Novelst
She actually didn’t know what she was looking for at all. She was very lost, so she followed her own instincts.
At the corner of the main building, Cao An was just coming from the courtyard, gaping and lost for words…
Big brother… was kissing Xia Rou.
