Heartthrob - Chapter 8
The girl next to me panicked and apologized, “I’m sorry, I’m sorry, I didn’t mean to ……”
How can a man be furious at a young woman?
I swallowed my heartache and shook my head, “It’s okay.”
Actually, I’m not nearsighted. My dad was a researcher, and he was so nearsighted that he couldn’t tell the difference between humans and animals. When I was a kid, I thought my dad’s glasses looked very elegant, so I asked my mom to get me a pair of glasses to wear in junior high.
Lao Er always thought I was nearsighted, and he thought I couldn’t see when he stole my potato chips.
This retard, even if I’m blind, I’m not deaf!
The girl whispered, “Thank you….. You look different when you take off your glasses…..” I flicked my hair resting at my forehead and lowered my face, “To tell you the truth. I actually put on those glasses on purpose to seal my beauty.”
The girl puffed out a laugh, “You look okay. It’s just a little less handsome than our heartthrob.”
Damn it. Why him again? Why a little less again?
I was so frustrated that I didn’t want to talk to her anymore. The girl in front of me finally realized that she broke my glasses and turned around to apologize. I even said that it’s fine several times, but it seemed like she didn’t hear it clearly. The situation became more and more chaotic. I was suddenly squeezed to the front row unknowingly.
It’s time for the final sprint of the 10-kilometer race.
The one who was currently in the first place turned out to be another hidden hero. The heartthrob was thrown off a bit by him. I was quite nervous for my class’s honor, and I forgot it was time for me to go back to work.
When the heartthrob saw me, his black eyes were so incredibly bright that I couldn’t resist making a silly face at him.
The heartthrob probably wanted to come and beat me as he suddenly increased his speed and instantly overtook the unsung hero in front of him, finally crossing the finish line.
I felt like I just contributed to our class.
The screams around me were deafening. The heartthrob, who looked like he had just crawled out of the water and was covered in sweat, walked up to me with a steady pace. I looked at him blankly. The only thing left other than the screams that were making my head hurt was this familiar person. His emotionless face suddenly changed to a shallow smile, and he hugged me.
In the few seconds he hugged me, all the screaming and cheering around me were gone, and all I could hear was the sound of his heart beating violently.
It made me wonder if he might have died on the spot from arrhythmia.
It seemed like a long time had passed, but at the same time, it seemed like it was just a second.
The heartthrob let go of me, and the noisy sound flooded into my ears again. He took the water bottle from my hand and drank it. As sweat and water flowed down his Adam’s apple, it somehow made me gulp. Only then did I realize I drank from that bottle too.
Sheesh. An indirect kiss between men is not really considered an indirect kiss anyway.
I relaxed and patted him on the shoulder while looking into his smiling eyes, “Good job, young man! Keep up the good work, and the honor of the class will be yours!”
I looked around, “I have to head back. Don’t litter the floor. We are the ones that clean up in the end. Tsk, a group of ill-mannered kids, littering everywhere.”
The heartthrob was still staring at me silently. After I turned to leave, he seemed eager to drag me back for a moment.
