14. Summer And Ice-cream
Because of the inexplicable rise in Xie Jingxian’s blackening value, Jiang Juan did not dare to relax in the slightest.
After returning from the shopping mall, Jiang Juan worked on his homework for an entire afternoon, and after dinner, he recited English words again. When he put down the English dictionary to rest, the hour hand was barely pointing at the eight o’clock.
Jiang Juan couldn’t sit still anymore, and went to shop where Xie Jingxian’s worked part-time.
It was a Saturday, so Xie Jingxian would go earlier as there would be no night self-study session.
When Jiang Juan arrived, he saw Xie Jingxian at a glance. The teenager was tall and had long legs, wearing a black T-shirt and jeans, and his expression was light. Wherever he goes, he is the focus of the crowd.
At this moment, Xie Jingxian was serving food to the guests sitting outside, when Jiang Juan noticed that he was holding a serving of crayfish. The bright red crayfish was packed in a large white bowl, which makes people involuntarily move their chopsticks.
In his original world, Jiang Juan had always been very self-disciplined person. He only visited this kind of street stall with friends when he was studying, and he never went there again after work he started working. Seeing this shop, he really missed that feeling.
Jiang Juan picked an empty seat and sat down, and Xie Jingxian quickly came over.
When Xie Jingxian saw Jiang Juan, he was obviously startled, but Jiang Juan’s expression was natural, and he curved his lips while looking at Xie Jingxian.
When Xie Jingxian approached him, Jiang Juan said to him, “Boss, a bowl of crayfish and a bottle of cold beer.”
Xie Jingxian looked at Jiang Juan for a long time, but didn’t say anything, turned around and entered the store. Soon he brought out a serving of crayfish, but Jiang Juan didn’t get the beer he wanted and but it was replaced with a bottle soft drink.
Jiang Juan glanced at the bottle of soft drink and said, “You got it wrong, I want cold beer.”
Xie Jingxian lifted his eyelids, glanced at him, and said in a soft but firm voice, “The cold beer is sold out.”
Jiang Juan stared at him, thinking how could this man talk nonsense without even batting an eyelid, but soon as if he realized something, a quite laugh escaped his mouth. Xie Jingxian obviously thought that he had a bad stomach, so he didn’t give him a cold beer.
This person leads a busy life, and his stomach is not good, but he is good at taking care of others.
Jiang Juan’s heart suddenly softened, he pulled the stool next to him and said to Xie Jingxian, “ Are you busy now? If not, sit down and eat with me?”
Aung Rong had hired two new waiters in the past two days. Xie Jingxian really wasn’t as busy as he used to be. But Aunt Rong soon saw Jiang Juan, she came over and smiled, “Xiaojuan is here.”
Seeing him now, Aunt Rong still remembers his name, making Jiang Juan’s eyes become bright, he got up and said, “Aunt Rong.”
Aunt Rong smiled and asked him to sit down quickly. Jiang Juan had a sweet mouth and coaxed Auntie Rong to smile soon after she started talking with him. She personally cooked two side dishes for him, which made Jiang Juan feel embarrassed.
Xie Jingxian said by the side, “It’s okay, I’ll invite you.”
Jiang Juan smiled and said, “Then I won’t be polite.” That’s what he wanted.
Aunt Rong smiled and said, “Oh, why are you inviting him? This meal is on me. Xiao Xie, you can also sit down and eat together, we are not so busy.”
Xie Jingxian knew that Jiang Juan was here because of him, so he did not refuse, and sat down on the stool next to him.
Aunt Rong said, “Then you sit down and call me if you want something.”
Jiang Juan knew that Aunt Rong treated him so warmly because of Xie Jingxian.
Xie Jingxian has helped Aunt Rong for a long time, and Aunt Rong had always treated him as her own child.
After so long, it was the first time Aunt Rong saw Xie Jingxian making friends. She was naturally feeling happy in her heart, and only hoped that Xie Jingxian’s life would be easier.
Xie Jingxian was lucky to meet such a good-hearted person.
Jiang Juan sincerely said, “Thank you Aunt Rong.”
After Aunt Rong left, Jiang Juan poured two cups of the soft drink, pushed a cup towards Xie Jingxian, and then took the disposable gloves next to him and put them on.
Auntie Rong’s stall is a long-standing brand, and business has always been very good. Some people even drive dozens of kilometers to taste the crayfish here.
The red colored crayfish is mixed with soft and glutinous rice cakes, which are fragrant and delicious.
Jiang Juan tasted a few, and seeing Xie Jingxian sitting still, he took the initiative to peel off two crayfishes and put them in Xie Jingxian’s bowl. Xie Jingxian’s eyes fell on Jiang Juan’s hand but he quickly moved them away.
Jiang Juan said, “Don’t just sit there, it’s embarrassing for me to eat alone.” He tried to looked as natural as possible, as if he really just came here to eat.
Xie Jingxian knew in his heart that Jiang Juan came here on Saturday night because of him.
In the end, he only ate a few pieces, most of them entered Jiang Juan’s stomach. Fortunately, the crayfish is not very heavy on stomach.
Jiang Juan was satisfied. As the crayfish was too spicy, his lips became red. Jiang Juan picked up the drink and took a sip, and only then did the spicy taste in his mouth dissipated a bit.
At this moment, the sky was dark while the moon was shining brightly, even the night wind was colder than usual. After transmigrating here, Jiang Juan had not felt so relaxed for a long time. He turned his head towards Xie Jingxian and said, “I thought you would ask me why I came here.”
Unexpectedly, Xie Jingxian never mentioned it.
Xie Jingxian shook his head, “If I asked, you would still say the same thing.”
Jiang Juan said, “Wanting to be friends with you? This is the truth. I do have another purpose. You see, we are all in the second year of high school, and we will take the college entrance examination in another year. I thought that if I can have a good relationship with you, you can mentor me, and then I can get good grades in the test.”
When Jiang Juan he said this, there was a smile in his voice, and he didn’t sound serious at all. Xie Jingxian just shook his head, feeling a little helpless, or probably he just didn’t know how to answer.
Because of Jiang Juan’s presence, Aunt Rong asked Xie Jingxian to leave early. The two of them didn’t stay outside for long, they just walked side by side for a while and then went home separately.
This weekend, although Jiang Juan was taken aback by Xie Jingxian’s sudden increase in the blackening value in the morning, Xie Jingxian’s favorability and trust in him had also increased in the past two days. In general, it was still very rewarding.
Jiang Juan was in a good mood. These days, all of his thoughts were either spent on studying or on Xie Jingxian. He had no idea that the school forums had gone crazy in the past two days.
One of the posts was upvoted An indication of approval on the social media. to the sky.
The title of the post was – [Devil/Angel: Summer and ice cream go hand-in-hand]
First floor: Old rules. Putting the pictures for proof.
In the photo, Jiang Juan and Xie Jingxian were together, one standing and another sitting. Jiang Juan was holding an ice cream in each hand and while handing one of them to Xie Jingxian.
This photo was very well captured regardless of the angle or the timing.
Jiang Juan was smiling, his arms stretching forward slightly, and Xie Jingxian’s fingers were just touching the cone, it looked like two people holding the cone together. The fingertips of the two seem to have been touched or not, giving people an ambiguous and sweet feeling.
It’s just a picture, and it’s even a candid shot again. Even if the picture was quite misleading, the uproar should have stopped after a while.
Who would have thought that at night, someone would post another picture.
Compared with the sweet atmosphere in the shopping mall at noon, this photo taken under the dim yellow street light was looking a little… sensual.
In the photo, Jiang Juan and Xie Jingxian were standing face to face, with a black car parked not far away.
Jiang Juan was shorter than Xie Jingxian, and at this moment he was raising his head slightly and saying something to Xie Jingxian. Even in such a dim light, everyone could see that Jiang Juan’s lips were abnormally red.
Xie Jingxian’s eyes fell on Jiang Juan, and he was listening quietly to Jiang Juan’s words. Perhaps because of the light, Xie Jingxian, who had always been cold, seemef to have a gentle expression on his face.
Thinking of the sweet date in the morning and the gentle look on Xie Jingxian’s face at that moment, everyone felt that they might have discovered some kind of hidden truth.
Jiang Juan didn’t know anything about this. He only felt that the atmosphere in the class was weird when he was studying during the self-study period. It seemed that everyone was peeking at him.
Not only the students in the class, but even Xu Rang, who was sitting beside him, was hesitating to speak.
Jiang Juan was used to the glances coming from his classmates from time to time, and he didn’t bother to care about Xu Rang, so he took out the newly bought papers to practice.
After writing half of the test paper, Jiang Juan could still feel Xu Rang’s eyes occasionally drifting towards him, and he kept on shaking the chair, looking quite uneasy.
Jiang Juan could no longer stand it, and had to put down his pen. He took the mineral water placed on the table and unscrewed it. He said to Xu Rang, “Just tell me what you want to say. What are you hesitating with me for?
Finally, Xu Rang could no longer stand it and he leaned towards Jiang Juan’s ear and whispered, “Brother Juan, are you and Xie Jingxian real?”
Jiang Juan was puzzled, “What real?”
Xu Rang said, “That…you kissed?”
Not expecting Xu Rang so say such shocking words, he almost chocked on the sip of water that he didn’t get the chance to swallow before and coughed.
Finally after drinking a bit of water and soothing his throat, Jiang Juan looked at Xu Rang as if he was looked at a lunatic, “Are you still sleeping?”
What kind of crazy words was he talking about!
Seeing Jiang Juan’s reaction, Xu Rang breathed a sigh of relief. He handed his phone to Jiang Juan and said, “You can see for yourself.”
Jiang Juan took the phone and saw a familiar interface.
He scrolled down and saw two pictures. One is of him delivering ice cream to Xie Jingxian in the mall, and the other was taken when he was saying goodbye to Xie Jingxian and going home after eating at the food stall.
Obviously it was a perfectly normal thing, but the people in the comments section had already came up with the idea of the two people going on a weekend date, and as they were feeling reluctant to part at night, they kissed each other because of which his lips were red.
Jiang Juan: …
If your imagination is so good, why don’t you go write novels?
He looked down again and found that someone had actually written a short story. Unexpectedly, the writing was not quite good. Jiang Juan did not get angry, but looked at it with interest. He returned the phone to Xu Rang, took out his own, opened up the post, scrolled down to that comment and replied, “Well written.”
Jiang Juan, as a second-year student, naturally had a sense of presence in the forum. Many people in the school knew Jiang Juan’s number. Although he had changed his nickname now, he was recognized as soon as he appeared.
Floor 1958: Heavens, is it the god?
Floor 1959: The one I was paying attention to is the god. Sisters, if you don’t want to be killed, run!
Floor 1960: Sisters, wait for me! I am rolling up my blanket!
Floor 1961: Add me.
Even though the original owner Jiang Juan had a very bad reputation in Jincheng High School, but everyone knew that he was very patient with girls, especially when he was on the forum, he often chatted with girls, looking quite good-tempered.
Therefore these people had the courage to ask Jiang Juan if it was true.
It’s a pity that Jiang Juan didn’t show up again after saying that sentence of unknown meaning.
Seeing Jiang Juan throwing his phone aside, Xu Rang hurriedly asked, “Brother Juan, what’s going on between you and Xie Jingxian?”
“Nothing.” He was not at all angry at those speculations. In his opinion, high school students are under a lot of pressure, and it is good to have something to divert their attention.
Jiang Juan said, “I asked Xie Jingxian to help me choose some review materials, and we ate together in the evening, spicy Crayfish, but it was too spicy.”
He thought for a while, and said in a low voice, “Next time, I’ll try the garlic flavored instead…”
Xu Rang, “…”
Brother, isn’t your focus wrong?
Is this a matter of crayfish’s taste! Xu Rang wanted to say something else, but then he saw Jiang Juan pulling the question paper and saying to Xie Jingxian who had just sat down on his seat, “Xie Jingxian, I have some questions that I can’t understand, so help me with it.”
With a sound, the class fell silent, and everyone’s attention was on Xie Jingxian and Jiang Juan.
After a while, Xie Jingxian’s slightly cold voice was heard, he didn’t refuse but said, “Come here.”
