Jiang Juan did not choose a high-end restaurant to treat Xie Jingxian. First, he was afraid of being restrained and feeling uncomfortable. Second, he wanted to find out who Xie Jingxian met today, so he chose a good rice noodle shop in the shopping mall.
Such a small shop is full of flowery patterns, which will unconsciously make people feel relaxed. It is very suitable for communication and chatting while enjoying the delicious food.
While adding chili oil and vinegar to the rice noodles, Jiang Juan asked Xie Jingxian, “Why are you here?”
Xie Jingxian didn’t say anything, just pointed at the paper bag placed against the wall.
Jiang Juan turned his head and glanced at it. When he was in the bookstore, Xie Jingxian helped him choose a few books, and then he also bought a book.
Jiang Juan stared at the paper bag for a while, and then slowly sighed, he knew that the reason Xie Jingxian appeared here today, was definitely not as simple as buying books. Even if Xie Jingxian really bought books, he was definitely here for something else.
It’s just that the relationship between the two at this time is far from the point where they can freely communicate with each other. If he keeps asking questions, it will make Xie Jingxian wary of him. It will be bad if he starts distancing himself from him.
Jiang Juan wisely ended the topic and turned to other conversations. Xie Jingxian didn’t say much, he listened quietly most of the time, and occasionally answered with a few words.
From the time he came here, Jiang Juan never thought about provoking Xie Jingxian, but as the relationship with Xie Jingxian eased during this period, he unexpectedly discovered that he and Xie Jingxian were very close. He likes to chat with Xie Jingxian, although Xie Jingxian doesn’t talk much, he can get along with him easily.
This discovery made Jiang Juan feel that the pitiful symbiosis system was not so unbearable anymore.
After eating, the sun outside was even more bright. Jiang Juan was afraid of the sweating, so he didn’t go out. He dragged Xie Jingxian around in the mall.
They were two boys, and there were no necessities to buy, so it was quite boring to just walk around. Soon Jiang Juan was tired of walking. He looked around and saw a milk tea shop around the corner. His eyes lit up, and he turned to Xie Jingxian and said, “Wait for me.”
After walking a few steps, Jiang Juan turned back again and put the book in his hand in the bag. The bag was then handed to Xie Jingxian, “Hold it for me, I’ll be back soon.”
After Jiang Juan left, Xie Jingxian stood there and walked out to the bench not far away which was placed for pedestrians to rest.
Putting the book bag aside, Xie Jingxian sat down. His eyelids drooped naturally, his eyes fell on his toes, and his slender eyebrows were slightly raised, as if he didn’t understand what happened to him. Why was he wasting his precious time with Jiang Jaun.
With that in mind, he sat still, motionless.
Xie Jingxian sat quietly, and after a while, he heard footsteps coming towards him, and soon, a figure stood still in front of him. He raised his head and saw Jiang Juan appear in front of him.
“You’re here. I had to search around for you.” Jiang Juan shook the cone in his hand and asked with a smile, “Which one do you prefer, the vanilla flavor or the strawberry flavor?”
Without waiting for an answer, he said, “I’ll give you the vanilla, they sell the most. Try it.”
Xie Jingxian rarely touched sweets, he looked at the cone in front of him, hesitated for a moment, but still took it.
“Thank you,” he whispered.
Jiang Juan smiled and said, “You’re welcome.”
Jiang Juan sat down beside Xie Jingxian, his long legs stretched comfortably, his facial expressions and body movements all carried a sense of laziness and leisure that belonged to a young man.
In Jiang Juan’s original world, he was already an adult and had a distinguished status. Many people watched his every move. He was sitting in the mall without any scruples and eating ice cream. He didn’t know how long ago he had sat like this…
Jiang Juan’s mood at this moment was unprecedentedly relaxed.
Jiang Juan and Xie Jingxian were two people, wearing two different colored T-shirts, one black and one white, on top of that they were very handsome. Although their temperament was opposite to each other, one warm and one cold, sitting together, their auras were unexpectedly harmonious.
When a girl passed by, she took a peek at them, then covered her mouth, turned towards her companion and snickered, not knowing what they were talking about.
Jiang Juan took a bite of the ice cream, swallowed it, and said to Xie Jingxian with a smile, “Hey, they’re peeking at you.”
Xie Jingxian’s voice was indifferent, “They are also looking at you.”
Jiang Juan thought about it, nodded and said, “It makes sense, after all, I’m so handsome, I’m not inferior to you at all, so it’s normal for them to look at me.”
Jiang Juan’s narcissistic appearance doesn’t make people feel annoying, on the contrary, he keeps on praising himself, looking cute especially when he is holding a pink strawberry-flavored cone in his hand.
Xie Jingxian couldn’t help shaking his head, and the corners of his mouth raised in a slight arc.
Jiang Juan finished his narcissism and turned to look at Xie Jingxian, just to catch the faint smile that flashed across Xie Jingxian’s face. This made him snort in his heart.
I have to say that Xie Jingxian deserves to be the male lead, his appearance and figure are first-class. Even if he has not grown up yet, but this does not affect his handsomeness.
At this time, Xie Jingxian had a handsome and straight face that was unique to young people. If a little girl was here now, in his place and took a look at him, she would probably blush and her heart will beat rapidly for a long time.
Seeing Jiang Juan kept looking at him, Xie Jingxian raised his eyebrows to express his doubts. This small action made him look less cold and more human.
Realising his gaze, Jiang Juan couldn’t help but touch his nose to hide his embarrassment. He looked away and whispered, “Are you in a good mood today?”
Jiang Juan had already asked this question in the morning, but Xie Jingxian did not answer him. Feeling bored, he looked at Jiang Juan’s profile and said in a low voice, “Yeah, it’s good.”
Jiang Juan had already had a psychological shadow over the series of “blackening value +1” that appeared in the morning, so after listening to Xie Jingxian’s answer, that he was in a good mood, he couldn’t help staring at the system interface nervously. After a minute, he found that the blackening value had not increased, so he was relieved.
Xie Jingxian had already finished eating the ice-cream cone, threw the cone into the trash can next to him, got up and said, “Go back.”
When Jiang Juan followed Xie Jingxian out of the mall, he heard 088 say, “Congratulations to the host, the male protagonist’s favorability +2, and trust +5.”
Jiang Juan was no longer in the mood to even be surprised. He looked at Xie Jingxian’s expressionless face, thinking that it was really hard to guess what the male protagonist was thinking.
After parting with Xie Jingxian, Jiang Juan returned home with the review materials that he had bought. After entering the room, he put the book on the table, and went to the bathroom to take a shower. After coming out, he didn’t rush to do the questions, but laid on the bed.
After dilly-dallying for a long time, he was still feeling a little tired.
At this time, 088, who had been silent all the way, jumped out and said, “A small friendship reminder, you can use your favorability and trust to exchange for small props.”
Jiang Juan rolled his eyes, using this mysterious tone, if he didn’t know the truth, he would have really thought that he had a lot of points to get a big reward. However, being reminded by 088, he was also looking forward to it.
Jiang Juan clicked on the item column, and saw that one of the columns was really unlocked. It’s just that the reward looks like a bunch of fireworks.
Jiang Juan put his hand on it, and saw the explanation that written below, the name of the item: Fire Tree Silver Flower. The primary reward, with the male protagonist’s favorability, and a trust level of 5, can be unlocked.
Jiang Juan:“…” He closed the inventory with a blank expression. He was still looking forward to it, but he didn’t expect the reward to be such a waste.
Jiang Juan said, “This is the primary reward? A bunch of fireworks?” What’s the use of this thing? He can buy it himself!
088 said: “No, there are many primary rewards to choose from, such as sweet dream water, bad luck candy, and fireworks, there are quite a few…”
Although he didn’t know what 088 was talking about, it sounds quite powerful. Jiang Juan said, “Then why was this thing assigned to me? Randomly?”
088 snorted, “Host, it took so long for the male lead’s favorability and trust to break through zero, I thought you would want to set off fireworks to celebrate.”
So this was 088’s own choice.
Jiang Juan smiled, “Wang Cai, next time if you decide to exchange waste items on your own, when I go back, I will definitely give you a bad review.”
