Xia Rou felt she was going blind.
What are you doing here? What are you doing here? What are you doing here? Xia Rou used a cold gaze while staring at him, thinking those thoughts hard at him.
I came to see you! I came to see you! I came to see you! Cao Xing looked back, gaze sharp.
Hurry and go! Hurry and go! Hurry and go! Xia Rou’s gaze turned wooden.
I don’t want to go! I don’t want to go! I don’t want to go!
You’re using public office for private gain! You’re using public office for private gain! You’re using public office for private gain! Xia Rou’s eyes turned lifeless.
So what? So what? So what? Cao Xing’s aura became more and more magnificent.
Their wordless exchange happened in only a second as their gazes met. After that, they broke eye contact quickly.
Everyone watched the muscular young officer walk to the instructor’s side and lower his head to murmur into the instructor’s ear.
The expression on the instructor’s face was as though he wanted to laugh but didn’t dare. He stood at attention and replied, “Yes.” Then the muscular man walked away with satisfaction.
Before he left, he glanced at Xia Rou. Translated by The Novelst
And the expression on Xia Rou’s face was elusive…
After that, the girls soon noticed that… the instructor for their class was so easy-going!
While the other classes were sweating heavily under the sun, they trained in the shade instead!
And while the other classes were being schooled on their standing postures, their class had already rested so many times…
“We’re so lucky! Our instructor is so kind; an enormously kind man!” They all sat in the shade of a tree to rest and chatted away.
“Who was that person just now? So handsome!”
“He looked so cool!”
“Did you see the way he walked? It was so heavy.”
“You’re right! I was thinking even if there were three to five men rushing him, it would be difficult to keep him down!”
“He must have trained heavily, or else his gait wouldn’t be so stable!”
“Ahh, he’s truly a man! Xia Rou, don’t you think so?”
“Mm mm.” Xia Rou was swept up in the chatter. “Man!”
How she wanted to tell them how silly he looked when hugging a teddy bear looking embarrassingly happy.
Since she had Cao Xing looking after her, the two weeks of military training weren’t too difficult to endure. It ended quickly enough.
The real university life had finally picked up its pace. When she returned to campus, it was time for clubs to recruit from the pool of new students.
“Xia Rou, which clubs are you interested in?” Zhuang Xiao asked.
Although her roommates were all quite good, their characters were all very different. After getting to know one another, Xia Rou found that she got along best with Zhuang Xiao.
“I haven’t really thought about it yet…” Xia Rou said, flipping through the flyers she had received just this afternoon.
In the past, since she had been a day student, she hadn’t participated in any of the clubs. Every day after class she would go straight home. Thinking back, she couldn’t see how that was any different from high school. So boring.
But at that time, although she appeared to be kind and easy-going, she was eccentric on the inside and not good at socializing with people. So she subconsciously avoided that kind of club activity.
In this life, she was much brighter when compared to the past. She was more willing to open up her heart and accept other people, and more willing to make new friends.
Zhuang Xiao and Xia Rou were both the same, taking the Chinese course together. She flipped through the flyers before her eyes began to shine: “Eh, Xia Rou, look. There’s a drama club!”
The pair discussed and compared clubs for half a day. In the afternoon after their last class ended, they went to the drama club room and the theater to take a look, and in the end both registered for the drama club.
When Xia Rou returned home, she reported to Cao Yang. “They seemed very professional and had a mentor to give advice. The president is a senior, so I heard she’s not really managing the affairs this semester. She’s passed it to the third years. The person in charge of matters now is Zou Yue. She’s very bright and gives me a good impression, so Zhuang Xiao and I registered together for the drama club.”
She thought for a second and added, “But we have rehearsals on the weekends, so in the future I might only be able to come back home on Saturdays.”
Cao Yang was a little unhappy that she would be coming home for less time, but at the same time felt that it was a good thing for Xia Rou to get involved in club activities, so she could connect with more people of her age.
It was also because during high school, Xia Rou had studied too hard for the national exams, locking herself up in the house nearly every day. Now that she was in university, she had become much happier and brighter.
Cao Yang liked this Xia Rou. Translated by The Novelst
This way, when Xia Rou smiled, it was like the sun penetrating through the windows, filling up the room with a bright light.
“Alright,” he said, sipping his tea. He encouraged with a smile, “Go and get along with everyone.”
