After Xie Zhongxing thanked her, he went back to his dormitory.
In the dormitory, Fu Donglin was announcing to everyone that he was going to have a birthday party at the Golden Jade Hotel. That made the boys from other rooms crowd over to him very lively.
Fu Donglin saw Xie Zhongxing coming over. With that, the smile on his lips became a mischievous smirk. His eyes even flashed with malicious light. And then, he asked loudly, “Xie Zhongxing, will you come for my birthday? If you come, I’ll have an extra chair for you. “
Xie Zhongxing glanced at him and asked, “Do you want me to come?”
Fu Donglin sneered, his face was not good-looking. “What are you talking about? Of course I’d want you to come.”
Xie Zhongxing said, “Then I’ll go attend your party.”
Fu Donglin said deliberately, “Do you have the money to give birthday presents? Don’t give me any cheap ones, okay? I don’t want to lose face. “
Xie Zhongxing finally raised his face and looked directly at Fu Donglin.
Fu Donglin wanted to see his embarrassed expression, but on Xie Zhongxing’s face, there was only calmness. He seemed to think for a few seconds and said, “No, I have money.”
Everyone was here. Fu Donglin didn’t want to let Xie Zhongxing go so easily. He deliberately raised the volume and said, “No way. You really have money? Where did you get the money? Why didn’t you buy a pair of shoes if you have the money? I see you have been wearing these shoes for a long time. I feel sorry for you! “
As soon as the words came out of his mouth, everyone laughed.
At this time, Zhong Yiming came out of the toilet and said to Fu Donglin with a straight face, “Fu Donglin, you’ve had enough for a birthday with great fanfare for fear that others won’t know you have money.”
Fu Donglin said: “But it is a fact that I am rich, unlike some people, that even if they are poor, they still try to pretend and are even arrogant about it!”
With that, Fu Donglin turned to Xie Zhongxing and said, “I’m not talking about you, Xie Zhongxing. I am not a bully.”
Xie Zhongxing said, “Well, I know.”
Fu Donglin grinned and said, “Then remember to come and bring gifts.”
Xie Zhongxing took one more look at him. Although he didn’t like to pay a visit to the east, it is a principle in the dormitory that once you are invited then you should go. Thus he doesn’t really have much of a choice. “Yes, happy birthday to you in advance.” Xie Zhongxing said calmly.
When the people dispersed, only Xie Zhongxing and Zhong Yiming were left in the dormitory, Zhong Yiming said, “Fu Donglin is too vengeful. He is too full of himself too.”
Xie Zhongxing put his exercise books and pens on the table one by one. He heard Zhong Yiming’s words but he did not speak.
There has been a grudge between him and Fu Donglin for a long time. Once in the monthly exam, he asked him to copy the test paper for him at the front and back table. Xie Zhongxing did not agree. After taking the exam, he still did not let go, and the feud was settled. After that, Fu Donglin also backstabbed him from time to time. But of course, when Zhong Yiming was there, Fu Donglin would not go too far.
Zhong Yiming looked at Xie Zhongxing and asked, “Do you still have any money? If not, I still have some. I can lend it to you. You can pay it back when you have the money for it. “
Xie Zhongxing said, “No, thank you. I have the money for it.”
Zhong Yiming said, “Really? Don’t force yourself. I can lend it for you.”
Xie Zhongxing raised his brow before speaking softly, “Really. Thank you, but I can manage.”
Zhong Yiming didn’t ask any more questions. He also took out the exercise book and said to Xie Chongxing, “Let’s do the exercises together. It’s rare that you don’t go home at the weekend. You can ask questions about the topics you still don’t understand.”
Xie Zhongxing nodded quietly.
On the other side, Qin Zhongyue played cards with Li Jun in the bar.
Li Jun is a year older than Qin Zhongyue. But nevertheless, eighteen year old Li Jun looks like a handsome teenager as much as Qin Zhongyue. He is also wearing a trendy look and a youthful glow.
Unlike when Qin Zhongyue last saw him, he is still wearing his fine bangs, revealing a pair of beautiful pair of fox eyes, but without the slippery ten years later, there is still some childishness within it.
When Qin Zhongyue looked at such Li Jun, he had an inexplicable sense of superiority, “Ah, I won again.”
He played the last few cards in his hand and won.
Li Jun said, “You’ve won a few games here. Save me some money, or you won’t be able to pay for drinks later.”
No sooner had he finished his words when another mutual friend, Mo Yu, found them and saw them playing cards. “Come here and play cards here instead.” He urged as fast as he could.
Li Jun spread his hand, “I am coaxing my ancestors.”
Qin Zhongyue said proudly, “You can’t beat me.”
Li Jun said, “Yea, I can’t beat you.”
Mo Yu said, “Shush. Don’t play cards. Look at those two beautiful ladies ahead of us. Don’t you want to know them?”
Li Jun’s eyes lit up. “I’m excited to say that.”
He lost his card and looked at Qin Zhongyue. “So, are we going there to meet them now?”
Qin Zhongyue: “……”
Qin Zhongyue: “No!”
Although Li Jun is about his age, he has gone through thousands of sails already. His private life is very chaotic, and he frequently tries to pull him together in that mess.
In the face of this group of friends who can’t control themselves, Qin Zhongyue often has the feeling that he is not that bad enough to fit in with them.
In fact, it is not without reason for Xie Zhongxing doesn’t let him play with them anymore.
Qin Zhongyue grew up with them but still insists that he is a normal person, so he is the only one who refuses to collude with them and feels subtly complacent about remaining a virgin at the age of 22.
The person who cherishes his body so much is a good boy who is responsible for himself and his future partner.
Because of this sense of pride in cleanliness, he was not moved by Li Jun’s words. He only wondered what could’ve been if he said yes and do her. But only a little bit. Yes, really. Only for a little while.
