No one in Class F was a star chaser. Not many people chased after Dong Sixuan, much less a rookie like Bai Suqing. She had only come to give Duan Yao her greetings and increase her presence.
The ringing of the bell signaled the beginning of the exam, and all of Silan Academy fell silent. The sound of pens scratching on parchment could be heard as a tense atmosphere settled over the academy.
The third years’ vacation came ten days after the first and second years’. Compared to other schools that had their vacation a month earlier before setting off on school trips, Silan Academy’s vacation came ten days later, followed by a ten days school trip. Since there was plenty of time for the third years to have fun during their winter vacation, not many complained.
In the examination room, Mu Rulan had completed her test first before double-checking her answers and putting her paper aside. She then took out a brand new sheet of paper to jot down the questions she had failed to solve the previous day when she was studying. When it came to her studies, she wasn’t going to let a second go to waste. Wisdom and knowledge were the strongest weapons a person could have. Having a brain but no knowledge was just like standing in the face of danger without using the gun in your hand. It’s plain stupidity.
The apartment door opened with a turn of the key. Liu Mian, who was carrying several bags of clothes and shoes, walked in with Huo Yalin following behind his many bags as well.
Liu Mian tossed the bags onto the couch and addressed the Huo Yalin behind her, “Jie1, have a seat and rest for a while. I’ll go make you a glass of juice.” Then, she walked into the kitchen.
Huo Yalin was wearing a dark blue coat with her curly hair loose. Her face, which showed traces of a smile, was well maintained, attractive and charming. She also seemed to be in a good mood.
She looked around Liu Mian’s small apartment, it was unusual for her not to feel abashed by its shabbiness. Huo Yalin felt something special for her righteous sister. When she was most vulnerable, Liu Mian had rescued her and stayed by her side. Because of this, she had left a special mark in Huo Yalin’s heart. That mark was now long gone. It had been replaced by a new mark that was born from frequent interactions. On one hand, she felt that Liu Mian wasn’t good enough for her; but on the other hand, she couldn’t bear to give up that feeling, that mark, which felt.similar to an imprint.
This feeling was quite confusing.
Huo Yalin frowned and sat on the couch. After walking around the mall for several hours, she was exhausted. Thanks to Liu Mian, she wasn’t like those bored ladies who sat around playing mahjong and gossiping. Only the nouveau riche would seek that kind of entertainment.
Liu Mian came out of the kitchen holding two glasses of freshly squeezed orange juice and asked, “Jie, you’ve been in a good mood lately, what’s up? Has Mrs. Mu been making a fool of herself again?” As she said this, she handed a glass of orange juice over to Huo Yalin with a beautiful smile.
Huo Yalin took the cup and snorted disdainfully, the corner of her lip curling to form a mocking smile. “That fool became a joke after leaving the Ke Family. Watching her struggle to guard a company on the verge of collapsing makes me quite happy.”
Huo Yalin had been waiting to see Ke Wanqing like that for a long time; nearly a decade had gone by. Ke Wanqing had made her feel ashamed. They were both daughters of the two most prominent families in China. They’d been competing with each other since childhood; their prideful and arrogant natures resembled one another. There was only a little ambiguity in the way they perceived certain subjects.
Thus, within the conflict, some sympathy could be found. It seemed as if only Huo Yalin was worthy of becoming Ke Wanqing’s rival, and only Ke Wanqing was worthy of competing against Huo Yalin. But ultimately, Ke Wanqing had eloped with a nouveau riche. From that moment on, whatever sympathy Huo Yalin had for her was reduced to dog shit. Huo Yalin regarded Ke Wanqing as a disgrace. When they were younger, Huo Yalin once told her that there would come a day where would regret it. She hadn’t believed it back then and remained arrogant for more than ten years. It was so frustrating, but now what? She deserved it! Huo Yalin felt invigorated seeing Ke Wanqing suffer.
After taking two sips of her orange juice, Liu Mian curiously asked, “Is there anything else to be happy about?” She was quite fascinated with upper-class society. It wasn’t because of Huo Yalin’s involvement in it, but a real curiosity. If Huo Yalin hadn’t disapproved of her desiring the Huo family’s men, she’d have hooked up with one of the Huo family’s sons. That would be true nobility.
“There is indeed something else.” As Huo Yalin spoke, she turned on the TV and switched to the movie channel just in time to see the new film documentary being broadcasted. It just so happened to be talking about the filming process, along with the directors, crew, and actors’ dedication in creating Bai Suqing’s pure love campus film.
“Huh?” Liu Mian gazed at Bai Suqing’s shy smile, her eyes widening in surprise.
She had been busy ever since she dug out that corpse during her vacation. Initially, she had thought that she could’ve gotten a breather as there were no leads on the evaporation case, but how could she have known that Jin Biaohu went missing again? The bureau became busy once again, and even if she was free, she had to give daily reports as well as conduct research with the professor. She finally had a vacation. She was busy resting and shopping for beauty products, so where would she find time to go watch a movie? A true love campus love film no less! She’d long outgrown these films and felt that talking to a woman like her, who lingered around flowers, about true love was just pure bullshit.
However, upon seeing Bai Suqing, she suddenly remembered about the little snake at home that she kept forgetting to unpack.
“This girl is interested in my Kaichen.” Huo Yalin said in disdain. After all, she was from a prominent family. Bai Suqing looked at her son differently. While it was well hidden, Huo Yalin had other ways of analyzing what she wanted to do. “As expected of Mu Zhengyang’s adopted daughter, wanting to climb her way into the Ou Family. Tch! But she’s an artist from TMT Company, if she’s going to be known as the second Dong Sixuan in the future, she’ll be quite useful! But ever since Mu Zhengyang was driven out by Ke Wanqing, I haven’t known if he’s dead or alive.”
Bai Suqing wanted to manipulate people, but just like a mantis stalking the cicada, unaware of the oriole behind 2, she didn’t know that someone else was lurking in the shadows, taking advantage of her.
“An artist from TMT?” Liu Mian was startled. Bai Suqing was an artist from TMT? And on top of that, according to Huo Yalin, Bai Suqing sent her that gift as a bribe, hoping that she would speak highly of her to Huo Yalin? Thinking along that line, Liu Mian felt a little excited. If that was the case, then the gift hidden inside must not be cheap. When she shook it, she thought it had felt like two objects were inside. Could it be two rare and precious gems?
The little green snake had red cheeks, a cute and honest smile as well as a plush body. Something was clicking inside, so what could it be hiding…
The bell signaling the end of class rang. The two morning exams had come to an end. Nerves that were strained all morning were finally able to relax, and the sound of stomachs gurgling in hunger could be heard.
Mu Rulan didn’t rush out with the other students. She still had a few steps that she hadn’t been able to solve yet.
By the time Mu Rulan finished the problem, there weren’t many people left in the classroom. Mina was playing a game on her phone while sprawled next to Mu Rulan, waiting for her. Seeing that Mu Rulan was finished, she immediately stood up and gazed at her cheerily, “Let’s go eat.”
“Mm.” Mu Rulan replied with a warm smile. It made Mina feel as though her physical and mental fatigue had disappeared in an instant and that everything she did was worth it. Since the day she decided to follow Mu Rulan, Mina had been working hard. She was afraid of being unable to keep up with Mu Rulan during the final college examinations and failing. If it was going to be like that, she would rather repeat a grade and stay at Duan Yao with them.
On their way to the self-serve cafeteria, they heard shouting in the distance. Every once in a while, people holding pieces of papers and pens rushed by, nearly crashing into their fellow students. It was as if they had seen a celebrity and were eagerly trying to get an autograph.
As a matter of fact, there really was a celebrity.
Mu Rulan and Mina stood on the outskirts of the crowd. They could see Bai Suqing sitting on a stone bench smiling and giving autographs to her fans in the distance. Most of her fans were young first year girls who still believed in and yearned for a beautiful love. They didn’t know about what Bai Suqing had recently done. Bai Suqing’s artist name was not Bai Suqing, but Bai Qing. With the addition with some cosmetics and hairstyle changes, there probably weren’t many who could tell that Bai Qing was, in fact, Bai Suqing.
It was quite an impressive sight.
Mu Rulan smiled as she observed the scene in front of them. Mina’s eyes widened for an instance, “Why did this bitch come back? And… What is this situation? She became a celebrity?”
Mu Rulan shook her head with a small smile. She pulled Mina by the hand and walked around the crowd towards the cafeteria. “Let’s go eat.”
“Okay!” As Mu Rulan’s diehard fan, Mina would have been willing to go and slap Bai Suqing across the face had Mu Rulan asked her to.
Bai Suqing had purposely stood on a high surface. She enjoyed the feeling of standing above others and being worshipped, but at the same time, she stood there to look for Mu Rulan. Otherwise, she would not have picked the entrance of the self-serve cafeteria.
It was all too easy to find Mu Rulan. She found Mu Rulan and Mina within seconds. While she felt a bit smug, her expression was eager and happy. Returning the pens and papers with her autograph back to her fans, she looked towards Mu Rulan, who was about to enter the cafeteria, and loudly shouted, “Sister Mu! Senior Sister Mu!”
A few of the fans followed Bai Suqing’s line of sight, and without giving it much thought, hurriedly grabbed onto Mu Rulan’s hand. “Bai Qing is calling you!”
Mina’s eyes flashed fiercely, and she slapped away the hand gripping Mu Rulan’s sleeve, “Who does Bai Qing think she is? My Lan Lan has to stop just because she wants to look for someone?! Remove your filthy hands! Diehard fans of Bai Suqing!”
That fan was a little chubby and just so happened to be an extreme fan. Her dream was to become just like Bai Suqing, so Bai Suqing was both her goddess and idol. How dare Mina say these things?! Fuck! She’s looking for a beating!
We know you’ve been waiting for this! Have fun reading!
