At the moment when Xu Qingqing was distracted, Jiang Zhao immediately took a step back and quickly distanced himself from her.
Xu Qingqing’s smile was a little stiff, she barely maintained the curvature of the corners of her lips, and looked at Xiao Siye: “Brother Xiao, Brother Jiang, and I have something to talk about, can you leave?”
Xiao Siye heard this, but he didn’t even want to leave. He leaned lazily against the magnolia tree next to him, looking at her with interest: “What’s the matter, tell me too?”
Xu Qingqing’s face changed slightly.
Why is it that every time she wants to approach Jiang Zhao, this Xiao Siye jumps out and ruins her good deeds abruptly?
If it wasn’t for Xiao Siye’s sudden interruption just now, maybe Jiang Zhao would have agreed to her!
She simply ignored Xiao Siye and tried to pull Jiang Zhao’s hand again, but it was empty.
Turning her head, she found that Jiang Zhao had flashed to a distance of eight feet from her.
Xu Qingqing: “…”
Jiang Zhao’s face was ugly; “I’m not interested in you. Miss Xu, respect yourself.”
Xu Qingqing’s throat choked, she wanted to pull Jiang Zhao’s shirt again: “Brother Jiang, but I really like…”
Jiang Zhao couldn’t help frowning.
Under the incandescent light at the entrance of the small courtyard, Xu Qingqing could see the change in his expression clearly, and even the arc between the eyebrows was clearly visible, and her arm suddenly froze in mid-air.
She couldn’t understand that there were actually men in the world who could be indifferent to a beauty like her who took the initiative to dedicate herself and rejected her in front of other people.
Where is she not good enough? Is she not good-looking enough? Still not sexy enough?
How could Jiang Zhao refuse her?
In an instant, the feelings of admiration for Jiang Zhao in her heart all turned into deep resentment.
She clearly likes Jiang Zhao very much. Even if Jiang Zhao won’t give her money and resources, this man is full of countless yearnings from her childhood as a little girl – handsome, arrogant, and has a reputation that is as unreachable as the flower of the high mountains.
But when she mustered up her courage and reached out to the figure she yearned for, Jiang Zhao disdained her.
He even despised her.
A frown made her invincible charm suddenly collapse. It was like a flashy piece of porcelain that was smashed, smashed, and thrown on the ground, and by the way, passers-by next to it stepped on both feet.
Even her last shred of dignity was turned into powder in Jiang Zhao’s rejection.
Xu Qingqing’s body trembled uncontrollably, her eyes were flushed – how could Jiang Zhao treat her like this!
She turned around and ran to her bedroom
Looking at the back of her leaving in a hurry, Jiang Zhao suddenly breathed a sigh of relief, frowning slightly.
Mrs. Xu taught him to respect and care for women since he was a child, so he endured Xu Qingqing for so long. As long as the other party is a man and dares to entangle him like this, he will definitely not escape the fate of being beaten by him tonight.
Before he could relax for a few seconds, a teasing voice suddenly came from behind him, his tone was very unpleasant: “The beauty threw her arms in your arms but refused, it’s really merciless, junior.”
Jiang Zhao turned around and looked at Xiao Siye through a short wooden fence, with a standard smirk on his lips: “This blessing is for you, do you want it?”
Xiao Siye thought about it seriously: “Then it depends on who is throwing his arms in my arms.”
Before Jiang Zhao had time to scold him for being shameless and skinless, he suddenly remembered that Xiao Siye mentioned at the dinner party at Master’s house that he had someone he could not ask for.
Jiang Zhao suddenly felt a strong sense of schadenfreude in his heart, and secretly mocked: “In short, it won’t be the person you expect.”
Xiao Siye lifted his eyelids to look at him, and the smell of gunpowder floated off: “But if it’s a junior, I’ll definitely not refuse.”
Jiang Zhao cursed in his heart.
It’s completely impossible to get over the matter of sleeping for one night, right?
He pushed open the door and walked into the small courtyard. As he passed in front of Xiao Siye, he stared at those frivolous amber eyes and warned, “You better not let me know who that person is.”
If he were to know who Xiao Siye likes, he would have to cut the red thread for him.
Xiao Si also gently hooked his lips: “Don’t worry, you absolutely would not.”
Jiang Zhao snorted coldly, turned around, and went back to the room.
A bunch of bad things happened all day today, which directly disrupted his good mood when he came to this show.
He took his quilt from the closet and walked to the edge of the bed in the bedroom. Wang Zuosi and He Jinuo were already unconscious in bed. Wang Zuosi looked active during the day, but his sleeping position was neat, with his hands folded in front of his chest very peacefully.
Jiang Zhao frowned. He was too lazy to care, but in the end it was his senior’s sense of responsibility, and he picked up the quilt for He Chino.
Then he hugged his quilt and came to the corner against the other wall.
There was a gap of two meters between him and He Jinuo, and Xiao Siye would not dare to come beside him if he was not 1.5 meters wide.
He simply lay down to sleep neatly, and just as he closed his eyes, he heard light footsteps coming from the door.
Xiao Siye also entered the house.
Jiang Zhao lay down for two seconds, then turned to the left, facing the wall.
The room was so quiet that he could hear Xiao Siye’s movement when he also picked up the quilt, the bed vibrated slightly when he lay down, and the rustling sound when the clothes rubbed against the quilt.
Jiang Zhao automatically blocked the movement behind him and tried to put himself to sleep.
One cat, two cats, three cats…
When the one hundred and twenty-ninth cats were counted, the night outside the window suddenly flashed.
With his eyes closed, Jiang Zhao could vaguely feel the flickering of this light. Before he could return to his senses, a heavy muffled thunder suddenly sounded in his ears, as if the earth was and the mountains were shaking.
He shuddered and opened his eyes uncontrollably.
Few people know that Jiang Zhao, the arrogant and cool guy recognized by the entertainment industry, is actually afraid of thunder.
This kind of thing is hard to explain, just like some people are naturally afraid of bugs, and some people tremble when they see snakes. Jiang Zhao is the kind of person who is naturally afraid of thunder. When he was a child, he even had a fever because of thunder, but whenever there was a flash of thunder outside, he would feel the instinctual fear from his body.
…But if he went to get earplugs now, he would inevitably be found by Xiao Siye behind him that he was afraid of thunder.
Jiang Zhao clenched his fists, not knowing whether he should get out of bed or not.
There was another flash of lightning outside, Jiang Zhao lowered his head abruptly, and buried his face in the quilt.
The sound of thunder caused even a brief tinnitus in his ears. After a while, his lips turned white from the shock, and his fingertips tightly grasped the corner of the quilt.
He needs earplugs, otherwise he will definitely not sleep until dawn with his eyes open.
But Xiao Siye…
There was a sudden movement from the bed behind him, Jiang Zhao reflexively curled up into a defensive posture, and turned to stare at Xiao Siye.
In the darkness, Xiao Siye seemed to be looking in his direction.
“It’s a bit noisy,” Xiao Siye said softly, “Do you want earplugs?”
After a while, Jiang Zhao nodded.
After thinking, he regretted it. Maybe the darkness would magnify people’s vulnerability, or maybe the shadow caused by the thunder was too strong. He didn’t expect that he would accept Xiao Siye’s proposal.
He began to worry that Xiao Siye would also see the cowardice he tried to hide, and even hoped that Xiao Siye didn’t even notice his nodding gesture.
Under his nervous gaze, Xiao Siye got out of bed and stood beside the cupboard rummaging for a while. When he turned back, the night sky outside suddenly flashed again.
Jiang Zhao’s mind trembled, and he subconsciously retracted into the quilt.
Just before the thunder sounded, his hand that was holding the edge of the quilt was suddenly held by a warm and dry hand. Immediately afterwards, a pair of earplugs slid into his palm.
In the next second, thunder broke out.
Jiang Zhao’s attention was drawn for a moment by the earplugs in his hand. When he regained his senses again, he found that he didn’t seem to have tinnitus just now.
Jiang Zhao hesitated for a moment and put the earplugs in his ears.
He can have a good night’s sleep.
The title tricked me, actually thought they’re going to sleep in the same bed because of the crew’s arrangement.
