Ch. 56 Boyfriend
After Jiang Juan finished feeding the cat, he got up and picked up the remote control to change the channel. He was about to ask Xie Jingxian if he wanted to see Ultraman when he heard Xie Jingxian’s phone ring.
Jiang Juan’s eyesight is good, and he was very close to Xie Jingxian, so when he turned his head, he could see the number displayed on Xie Jingxian’s mobile screen.
Xie Jingxian was solving the papers, hearing the ring, he looked up at the phone and then ignored it. After hanging up automatically, the number called again, Xie Jingxian frowned slightly, and clicked to refuse.
Jiang Juan sat back on the sofa and asked, “Is that him?”
It is not necessary to say who he is, both of them know it clearly. Xie Jingxian turned off the phone, put it aside, and nodded.
Jiang Juan snorted and leaned on the sofa, pressing the button to change the channel, but his thoughts had already run far away. Judging from Xie Jingxian’s attitude, Han Shuo was probably bothering him a lot during this time.
Jiang Juan looked at the TV, the news on TV was no longer Gu Jingzhu’s news, but Ultraman. While staring at the Ultraman on the TV beating the little monster, he thought to himself, there would probably be no peace of mind after this.
Jiang Juan’s hunch came true, and that night after the self-study, he saw Han Shuo waiting at the school gate from a distance.
Han Shuo couldn’t get through Xie Jingxian’s phone, so he simply drove over. As soon as he saw Xie Jingxian, he put on a concerned smile on his face, walked over and said, “Xiaoxian, you haven’t answered the phone, I thought something happened to you, so I came to see if you are okay.”
When Xie Jingxian saw Han Shuo, his brows furrowed. He dragged Jiang Juan to leave, but Han Shuo blocked his way and prevented him from leaving.
At this time, it was the end of the last period, so there were a lot of students at the school gate. In addition, most of the students at Jincheng High School were children of wealthy families, they still had some impression of Han Shuo, who often appeared on TV.
Not to mention that Jiang Juan and Xie Jingxian are very much famous in the school. The three of them stood there motionless, and the students passing by couldn’t help but cast curious glances.
Xie Jingxian’s brows furrowed even tighter. Han Shuo also noticed it and said, “If it’s inconvenient to talk here, why don’t we talk in another place?”
Xie Jingxian didn’t want to see Han Shuo at all, let alone talk to him, but standing here and being watched by others was not what he wanted. After thinking for a moment, Xie Jingxian said, “Okay.”
Xie Jingxian looked at Jiang Juan who was beside him. Jiang Juan was very considerate. He smiled and said, “I’ll wait for you here.”
Watching Xie Jingxian and Han Shuo walk away, the phone in Jiang Juan’s pocket suddenly vibrated twice. He took it out and saw that there was a new email with the name “Data.”
Jiang Juan raised his eyebrows lightly, found a place to sit down, and waited for Xie Jingxian while reading the information.
After a while, Xie Jingxian came back. Jiang Juan put away the phone, got up and asked, “Finished talking?”
Xie Jingxian nodded and said, “Let’s go back.” Jiang Juan was about to say something else when he suddenly tilted his head and sneezed.
Xie Jingxian frowned slightly, and took Jiang Juan’s hand, only to feel that his fingers were very cold. The temperature has cooled down in the past few days, especially at night when the wind is strong. Ad Jiang Juan stayed in the cold atmosphere, not only his hands were cold, but even his nose was red.
Xie Jingxian took off the scarf around his neck and tied it around Jiang Juan’s neck.
Jiang Juan subconsciously wanted to take off the scarf, but Xie Jingxian pressed down his hand and said, “Put it on, don’t freeze.”
Jiang Juan asked, “What about you?”
“I’m not cold.”
Thinking of the temperature of Xie Jingxian’s palm just now, Jiang Juan stopped insisting. He straightened his scarf, and don’t know what he thought of as he burst out laughing.
Xie Jingxian was puzzled, “What are you laughing at?”
Jiang Juan shook his head, glanced at Xie Jingxian, and finally couldn’t hold back saying what was in his heart, “I just suddenly thought that you looked like a boy in love caring for his girlfriend just now”.
At this time, majority of students were almost gone, there were only a few sparse people at the gate of the school. The warm yellow street lights fell down, reflecting Jiang Juan’s smiling eyes.
Xie Jingxian’s expression became gentle, he shook his head lightly, and said, “Not a girlfriend.”
Jiang Juan said, “Huh?” Xie Jingxian looked into Jiang Juan’s eyes and continued, “It’s a boyfriend.”
Jiang Juan’s heart beat wildly, and his eyes fluttered, not daring to look into Xie Jingxian’s eyes anymore, he stuttered, “What… what boyfriend.”
Xie Jingxian said, “You are not a girl, so you are naturally a boyfriend.”
Jiang Juan blinked, then looked at Xie Jingxian, and when he saw Xie Jingxian’s smiling eyes, he realized that he thought too much.
What Xie Jingxian means is a male friend and female friend. At the same time he breathed a sigh of relief, there was also an unspeakable loss in his heart, but he ignored it.
Jiang Jun bumped Xie Jingxian with his arm and said, “You really frightened me.”
Xie Jingxian looked serious, “Scared? Why?”
Jiang Juan said, “I thought you…” He suddenly shook his head when he said this, “Forget it, it’s nothing.”
What Jiang Juan was thinking was that Xie Jingxian had been studying or working part-time over the years. He didn’t know about the relationship between men and women, and must not be knowing about homosexuality. He said that, probably just to amuse himself.
During this time, Jiang Juan had been busy paying attention to Han Xingye, but he forgot that Xie Jingxian had a mischievous side in his nature.
It seems that Han Shuo’s sudden appearance tonight did not affect Xie Jingxian’s mood?
Jiang Juan coughed and said, “Next time you talk to someone, you’d better finish it in one breath, otherwise people will misunderstand.”
But Xie Jingxian seemed to have a lot of questions suddenly, as he continued to ask, “What misunderstanding?”
Jiang Juan tried to explain him, “I misunderstood that you like me, no, it will be someone else who may misunderstand you…”
Xie Jingxian suddenly interrupted him, “I really like you.”
Jiang Juan was dumbfounded. He looked at Xie Jingxian, his mouth opened and closed several times, but he couldn’t say a word. Xie Jingxian seemed to be amused by his reaction, and finally added, “You are my friend, what’s wrong with liking you?”
Jiang Juan raised both of his hands and said, “Okay, okay, I admit defeat, I surrender, hero, please forgive me, can you speak well, stop teasing me.”
Xie Jingxian shook his head with a smile and said, “Go back.”
Jiang Juan felt as if he had been granted amnesty. The car was parked not far away, and he quickly rushed into the car. Xie Jingxian opened the door from the other side and got in.
Jiang Juan thought that he would calm down after getting in the car, but when he thought of the look in Xie Jingxian’s eyes when he spoke, he couldn’t help but feel a wave of excitement in his heart. In the end he had no choice but to open the car window and let cold wind cool himself down.
While looking out the window, Xie Jingxian suddenly touched him and said, “Be careful of catching a cold.”
Jiang Juan’s heart shuddered, and he closed the car window with a sigh. Jiang Juan could feel his heart beating like a drum, so he sat farther away from Xie Jingxian, and took out his mobile phone to divert his attention and calm down his heart.
At this moment, the voice of 088 suddenly sounded in his head, “Add 5 to the favorability and 5 to the trust.”
Jiang Juan was startled and almost threw his phone out. He quietly glanced at his side from the corner of his eyes, and was relieved to see that Xie Jingxian was looking out the window without noticing him.
Jiang Juan said to 088, “Can you please stop talking.”
088 has not shown up for a long time, and now seeing Jiang Juan dislike him so much, he felt quite uncomfortable, “Why are you complaining when I haven’t even said anything. Your heartbeat is disturbing me.” After a while, he asked, “Are you nervous? Why? What about your desire to win back then, why have you become so cowardly, do you still…”
Jiang Juan said, “…Shut up!”
Bickering with 088, his attention was diverted, and his mood calmed down a lot after reaching home. While Xie Jingxian was going to take a bath, Jiang Juan opened his laptop and logged in to his mailbox to find the information he received tonight.
This information is the evidence that Han Xingye threatened Aunt Rong’s family and asked someone to come to the house to put those pictures and paints.
Although the old community where Xie Jingxian lives is not monitored, if you really want to find it, it is not impossible to find it. Jiang Juan had asked a professional to do this, and the other party did it perfectly
Jiang Juan sent this information together with the video of Gu Jingzhu that he saw during the day to someone.
Soon there was a reply from the opposite side, Jiang Juan clicked on it, and the reply was, Who are you? What do you know?
Jiang Juan’s hand was on the keyboard, and before he could move, another message came, this time asking him what he wanted to do, what conditions he had, and if he could meet and chat.
Jiang Juan could feel the other party’s nervousness and urgency from the words. He pressed his finger, but instead of answering the other party, he chuckled and closed the computer.
After witnessing the whole process, 088 commented, “Tsk tsk tsk, you are very bad.”
