19. Trouble comes knocking
In the afternoon, the head teacher Ren Tao walked into the classroom, firstly, he praised the students for their outstanding performance in the sports meet, and then asked the class representatives to distribute the exam papers for each subject that they had to solve during the holiday.
He also told the students to pay attention to safety during the holiday, not to go to dangerous places, and to study at home.
The first month of the second year of high school is very important, and that he hopes they can take it seriously.
With the holiday approaching, the classroom was full of everyone’s clamour. The students were discussing how to spend the holiday, but they were also going to listen to Ren Tao’s advice.
Some students wished Ren Tao a happy National Day. Ren Tao smiled and nodded. After wishing them a happy National Day, he asked them to pack up and go home.
These students were feeling suffocated by being locked up in the school. They were looking forward to the holidays with great excitement.
They packed up their bags and left the school. As for whether to go home or not, it was beyond the control of the teacher.
Take Dong Gao, for example, it has been more than a month since the start of school, and he has been busy studying and did not dare to slack off. Now that he was on a vacation and has won many awards in the sports meet, how can he obediently stay at home?
They will go out and give wishes and then talk about other things.
When Dong Gao returned home, he threw away his schoolbag, changed into clean clothes after taking a shower, and contacted everyone one by one on the WeChat, calling them to go out for dinner.
He called all the classmates who participated in the sports meet from the class, and with whom he was closer during the weekdays. The reason of the party was to celebrate their win at the sports meet.
As a small social expert, Jiang Juan successfully got along with Dong Gao, Wang Tuo and the others in a short period of time.
Dong Gao was worried that Xie Jingxian will refuse to come, so he entrusted Jiang Juan with the task of bringing him.
Jiang Juan readily agreed.
If it was said that he first approached Xie Jingxian in order to find out his blackening value, then after getting along during this period of time, Jiang Juan really hoped that this cold-tempered friend of his would stay happy.
Although the appearance of the female protagonist in the future can make Xie Jingxian feel the warmth that he had never felt before, the brotherhood between the men is completely different from what the female protagonist can give him.
Jiang Juan hopes that Xie Jingxian’s life will be not be dull, and instead be more bright and rich.
He got out of the chat interface with Dong Gao, and went to poke at Xie Jingxian.
Xie Jingxian was at home when he got Jiang Juan’s text.
Right after the sports meet, Auntie Rong gave Xie Jingxian a holiday, to let him rest for a night, and he would go there early tomorrow morning to help.
Xie Jingxian was staying in the old house left by his adoptive father and mother at this time. After the curtains were drawn, all prying eyes were blocked outside.
The room was dimly lit, and it was not soundproofed. You could hear the cries of children and the sounds of residents making dinner. It was very noisy and full of a breath of life.
But all this seemed to have nothing to do with Xie Jingxian, his home was very quiet, those sounds full of life will no longer sound in this room.
Xie Jingxian was lying on the bed sideways, feeling a little drowsy. At this moment, the mobile phone on the bedside table rang, it was a WeChat prompt.
Xie Jingxian ignored it, and after a while, the phone rang again twice.
He opened his eyes, gropingly grabbed the phone in his hand, and saw that the top message was sent by Dong Gao.
During the training, Dong Gao had established a group and brought together all the students who had signed up, including Xie Jingxian.
It didn’t take long for Dong Gao to send a friend request. The atmosphere was just right, and Xie Jingxian couldn’t refuse, so he had agreed.
Below Dong Gao’s WeChat is the text from Jiang Juan. The two had the same meaning, calling him out to have dinner together.
Xie Jingxian’s eyes swept across Jiang Juan’s name, and then turned his head to look at the closed door. After a long time, his slender fingers moved and replied with a message.
After replying to Jiang Juan’s text, Xie Jingxian paused, and sent Dong Gao the same reply.
After Jiang Juan sent a message to Xie Jingxian, it took a while to receive a reply, which was simply the word ‘good’, only one word, perfectly befitting Xie Jingxian’s personality.
Jiang Juan sighed lightly, got up and set off for the agreed place.
Xu Rang, this seemingly fierce, but actually silly and sweet idiot, was also invited. Unfortunately, he was going to visit his grandparents in Linshi during the holiday. As soon as he left the school gate, he was picked up by a car waiting outside the school gate.
He could only frantically bomb Jiang Juan on the WeChat, saying that he was too miserable, that he also wanted to come and have a skewer, wanted to party, and wanted to go to KTV.
Xu Rang was feeling very aggrieved, but unfortunately, no matter how much he wailed, things couldn’t be change.
Jiang Juan originally comforted Xu Rang with a few words, saying that it would not be too late to meet again when he came back. Who knew that Xu Rang would send endless messages, causing him to feel annoyed and in the end, he just blocked him.
Dong Gao’s chosen location was in the food street in the city center. It was an old-fashioned food stall with booming business. It was quite hard to reserve a seat here. Fortunately, Dong Gao had an acquaintance here, who reserved a seat for him.
At this time, when the night was cold, with a slight wind blowing, sitting outside and drinking bear while making skewers, was the best.
The dishes came one after another. Dong Gao took the lead to raise his glass and said with a smile, “Come on, let’s celebrate the excellent performance of our class in the sports meet. Everyone has worked hard these days.”
The beer was cold causing the inside of the mouth to feel cool, Jiang Juan couldn’t help but narrow his eyes in satisfaction. He raised his lips and smiled.
Some of the guests sitting around them were about their age, apparently students, who came out to relax during the holiday.
Jiang Juan, Dong Gao and the others chatted while eating, and the atmosphere was very harmonious.
They were all youngsters still in the period of growing up. You toast me at the wine table, and I’ll toast you. There was no distinction of status in mind, nor was it asking for help, or for flattering anyone, they were enjoying this time entirely from the bottom of their hearts. They were comfortable, they were happy.
The atmosphere was also very relaxing.
Xie Jingxian sat there with a light expression on his face. As courageous as Dong Gao was, he didn’t dare to tell him to drink, but Wang Tuo had a drink with him.
Xie Jingxian was somewhat of a stranger to most of the people sitting here, but Jiang Juan was different.
With his good performance during this period, Jiang Juan was very famous in the Class 2. One by one, after toasting almost everyone, Jiang Juan had already finished drinking three glasses of beer, and Dong Gao smiled and said, “One more.”
He opened a new bottle and was about to fill it up for Jiang Juan. At this moment, a slender white hand stretched out to cover the mouth of Jiang Juan’s cup.
Dong Gao looked at Xie Jingxian who was sitting beside Jiang Juan in confusion.
Xie Jingxian’s expression remained unchanged, and he said lightly, “He has a bad stomach, so he can’t drink anymore.”
Everyone present was stunned. Their faces filled with doubts.
It was Dong Gao who was the first to break the silence and said with a smile, “Ah, that’s it, then don’t drink it.” Then he said, “Jiang Juan, you should have told me if you have a bad stomach. I would have just got them to get a glass of watermelon juice.”
Jiang Juan was startled, and then thought that Xie Jingxian was also thinking for his body, if he refused, it would be too much.
Jiang Juan was in a good mood, but was suddenly interrupted by Xie Jingxian, so he could only smile bitterly.
Seeing Dong Gao getting up, Jiang Juan stopped him and said, “Wait, please ask for one more cup.” He pointed at Xie Jingxian beside him, “For him. Get one at a room temperature.”
The one beside him was the one who really had a bad stomach.
The silent atmosphere broken by Dong Gao came out again, and everyone’s eyes fell on Jiang Juan and Xie Jingxian, as if they wanted to ask something, but were holding themselves back.
Wang Tuo coughed lightly, “Well, Dong Gao, everyone should have a light drink. I also want to drink it.”
As soon as they heard this, the others also came back to their senses, “Yes, yes.”
Look at that, if anyone saw them right now, they would think that these boys of their class seemed to be eating melons on the frontline Thirsting for gossip.However, looking at Xie Jingxian’s appearance, he should be unaware of the things going on in the forum, so he also acted as if he didn’t care. Anyway, when the female lead comes, these rumors will anyways be crushed.
After a while, Jiang Juan got up and went to the bathroom. When he came out, he saw a few people surrounding their table. One of the tall men stood in front of Xie Jingxian with his head down, seemingly talking about something.
Xie Jingxian just sat quietly, he did not even lift his eyes to look at the person talking to him.
While looking at Wang Tuo, Dong Gao’s raised his eyebrows, and the expressions on the faces of the people sitting around them were filled with excitement, obviously knowing that those people were looking for trouble.
To be precise, they came for Xie Jingxian.
Jiang Juan walked over and hooked his fingers at Zhu Xu and Bai Guang who were looking worried. The two of them saw it and walked over quietly.
Jiang Juan raised his chin and asked, “Who are those people and what are they doing?”
Zhu Xu also looked puzzled, as he shook his head, “I don’t know, these people just came out of the store and saw Xie Jingxian. Then they came here and said that they wanted to toast with him.”
Jiang Juan glanced at them and saw that those people were holding wine bottles—white wine, that too with a high degree of concentration and a very strong taste.
Didn’t they know that they were students, just drinking some beer and relaxing, what’s the matter with drinking liquor? Furthermore, Xie Jingxian had a bad stomach. After drinking such a strong wine, won’t he end up vomiting blood.
Bai Guang held Jiang Juan’s arm and whispered in his ear, “I know this person.”
Jiang Juan said “Huh?” Bai Guang said, “It’s the boy on the ground that day, he seems to be called Wang… Wang Ping. “
As soon as Bai Guang finished speaking, Jiang Juan saw the man tilt his head. Looking at his side profile, it was indeed the boy he had seen on the ground that day.
Jiang Juan thought for a while, and realized that there was no such character in the original book, so he asked, “What’s wrong with this person?”
Bai Guang had already noticed Wang Ping when he was looking at the photos in the afternoon. He was from the same class as Su Ruo. When he saw her for the first time at the school gate, he feel for her. Immediately after that he began to pursue Su Rou, but unfortunately he was rejected.
After Jiang Juan heard this, he sighed and said that he understood.
That day, Su Rou brought water to Xie Jingxian, which just happened to be seen by Wang Ping. The goddess that he couldn’t get, turned around and sent water to others and was seeking his attention. He was jealous, but he couldn’t do anything to Su Rou, so he naturally hated Xie Jingxian.
He coincidentally met Xie Jingxian here today, and came to look for trouble.
