Names mentioned in this chapter (which can also be found in the glossary):

-苏小芮(sù xiǎo ruì)- Su Xiao Rui, which translates to Su little Rui.
-顾煜城 (gù yù chéng)- Gu Yu Cheng, the male lead
-顾董(gù dǒng)- Chairman Gu, Gu Yu Cheng
-刘玲(Liú líng)- Liu Ling, Su Rui’s university roommate
-唐笑(táng xiào) – Tang Xiao, Su Rui’s friend and daughter of the chairman of Tang Jing Group
-唐小姐(táng xiǎo jie)- Miss Tang, Tang Xiao
-白欣雨(bái xīn yù)- Bai Xin Yu, aka Siria
Fortunately, after hanging up the phone call with Gu Yu Cheng, Su Rui was chatting with Tang Xiao on WeChat again.
Of course, the content of the topic was still about the gossip about Gu Yu Cheng and Bai Xin Yu that could no longer be found on the internet.
Then, Su Rui read through the various kinds of comfort Tang Xiao had sent, and multiple versions of the rumours about Gu Yu Cheng and Bai Xin Yu and the origin of it. Both of them chatted for more than two hours.
When Su Rui finally couldn’t stay awake and said goodnight to Miss Tang, the enthusiastic melon eater, she looked at the time and realised that Gu Yu Cheng should have arrived by now.
Anyway, since Su Rui wasn’t asleep, she simply searched for the chat log with Gu Yu Cheng on WeChat again.
Without waiting for Su Rui to ask, Gu Yu Cheng’s message was sent to her first.
[Gu Big Pig’s Trotters]: Are you asleep?
“Gu Big Pig’s Trotters” was the new WeChat display name that Su Rui gave to Gu Yu Cheng when she felt really frustrated.
Although this kind of behaviour could be considered childish, it made Su Rui feel much more at ease.
[Su Xiao Rui]: Not yet.
[Su Xiao Rui]: Have you reached home?
Calculating the time, Gu Yu Cheng should probably have already returned from the airport to the Gu House.
Su Rui mulled over in her mind and the next second Su Rui saw the latest message from Gu Yu Cheng.
[Gu Big Pig’s Trotter]: I’m downstairs in your dorm.
Su Rui: ?!
What is he trying to do?
[Gu Big Pig’s Trotter]: Is it convenient for you to come out?
[Su Xiao Rui]: Wait there. I’m coming down now.
Su Rui and Gu Yu Cheng’s message popped up almost at the same time.
After taking a glance at their conversation, Su Rui put away her phone and quickly climbed out of her bed. She wore a long coat over her pyjamas that would protect her from the wind and rain.
Even though Su Rui’s movements were already very gentle, it still woke Liu Ling up.
“Su Rui? What are you doing?” Liu Ling rolled over a little, obviously still sleepy as she asked the question.
“Sorry, I woke you up. Go back to sleep.” Su Rui whispered.
“En.” Liu Ling seemed to respond in agreement. At first, she thought that this person was going to the bathroom. However, when she half-opened her eyes, she froze and looked at Su Rui, who clearly looked like she was going out as she wore an overcoat and was holding onto her keys.
“You are going out in the middle of the night?” Liu Ling asked in surprise.
“En. Gu Yu Cheng is downstairs.” Because she was in a hurry to go out, Su Rui briefly explained.
The explanation from Su Rui was meant to tell her roommate that she wasn’t sleepwalking and wasn’t going down there to do any shady business in a dark and windy night.
Who knew that when Su Rui said that, Liu Ling sprang up from the bed and was instantly surprised that she wasn’t sleepy anymore.
“You said Gu Yu Cheng?”
“Now? In the middle of the night, he came to our school and is downstairs of the dorm?”
“En. “ Su Rui nodded her head.
As she said that, she took out a wet paper towel from one of her bags and quickly wiped her face. Looking at the somewhat messy hair in the mirror, Su Rui just tied a bun.
“Is he here to explain that to you? Because of that online matter earlier?” Thinking of the only possibility, Liu Ling took the opportunity to ask while Su Rui hadn’t left the room.
After a pause and before Su Rui could respond, Liu Ling sighed and commented with an amazed expression on her face, “That’s too exaggerated…”
Oh, forgive her for being a single dog and not experiencing this ‘Romance in the Rain’ fervour.
Hearing Liu Ling’s mutters, Su Rui pursed her lips and remained silent.
“I’m going downstairs, I locked the door, you can sleep at ease. I should be coming up soon. I’ll try to be a little quieter so that I don’t disturb you.” Su Rui said to Liu Ling before she went out.
“Eh, hold on, Su Rui, wait here.” Su Rui was about to leave, but she was stopped by Liu Ling again.
“Gu Yu Cheng is outside and the dormitory gates have been locked. How are you going to get out?” Liu Ling asked.
“By climbing over the wall?” Su Rui asked in response. But of course, she was just saying that.
Actually, what she was thinking was that if Gu Yu Cheng was here to explain, then she would just listen to what he had to say through the dormitory railing.
When Liu Ling heard what Su Rui had said, she became nervous.
“Don’t. It’s cold and late at night. Don’t fall.” Liu Ling said. She paused and continued, “When I went down to do laundry today, I think I saw a hole at the bottom of the dormitory fence, which seemed to be made by those fast food delivery aunties.”
“It is between the second and fourth building. You can see if it is true later.”
“Mhm. Got it.” Su Rui nodded and smiled. She looked at Liu Ling and added, “You’d better get some sleep, ah.”
Sleep? How can she sleep with such a stunning half melon?
As she watched Su Rui go out of the door, Liu Ling’s lips couldn’t help but twitch as she softly ridiculed.
Although she thinks that a boyfriend coming to her school in the middle of the night is a little extreme, somehow Liu Ling actually felt a little envious?
Especially since that person is Gu Yu Cheng!
Her male god!
From her previous understanding, Gu Yu Cheng was the kind of chairman that is aloof and remote, always busy with his business and Gu Company’s affairs, and serious in speech and manner, okay?
She would never have thought that one day, Gu Yu Cheng would do something so out of the ordinary and fanatical just to explain a misunderstanding to his girlfriend.
It’s over. Chairman Gu’s glorious image is slightly crumbling in her heart.
But this seems more realistic?
While Liu Ling was muttering on her dormitory bed, Su Rui was already downstairs wrapped in a long coat.
When she passed by the fence between the second and fourth building that Liu Ling had mentioned, Su Rui originally wanted to just ignore it.
However, after taking two steps forward, Su Rui was slightly hesitant.
In the end, after hesitating for a while, she sighed inwardly, turned back and went to find the hole in the fence that was big enough for one person to go through.
Su Rui came out of the side of the dorm building and walked towards the front of the dorm.
 吃瓜群众(chīguāqúnzhòng)- melon eaters/peanut gallery/onlookers who are interested in the spectacle but don’t comment on them.
 大猪蹄子(dà zhūtí zi)- Pig’s trotters is an internet slang which express that “There’s no such thing as a good man.” Women used this phrase to complain about men who fail to keep their promises, fall in love with someone new or are not considerate towards women. It can also be used to ridicule men for being unromantic or for being a ‘steel straight man’ (钢铁直男[gāngtiě zhínán)- an internet slang that means a heterosexual man whose personality and temper is straightforward and he is not skilled at accommodating to someone’s needs. Even though they are a little inflexible and inarticulate, many people still find them endearing.)
 注名(zhù míng)- Display name/alias. It is one of the functions in WeChat where one can set an alias for another person on his/her contacts.
 瓜(guā)- It is an internet slang where melon refers to gossip.
 男神 [nán shén]: Male god. This Internet slang term is often used to describe one’s idol or love interest, usually of stunning looks and/or talents.
