After the dinner, Ji Shasha took the lead in asking Ling Yichen to bring Yun Jian, Zhang Shaofeng, and Zhang Jian to go out together.
Chen Xinyi had just recovered from the severe injury. Having just returned from the brink of death not too long ago, there was no way she could roam around outside like she was completely fine for now. To be honest, she was still under an observatory period. Although she was discharged from the hospital, she was still at risk. Hence, it was not wise for her to be going out.
Needless to say, Chen Xinyi would not be joining them.
“Jianjian, I’m so bored at home. Why don’t you stay and keep me company?” Chen Xinyi asked, looking at Yun Jian with a pitiful gaze, pulling her back when she saw that the latter was going out.
Ling Yichen was quick to fight for Yun Jian when he heard that Chen Xinyi wanted to keep her.
Truthfully, Ling Yichen was impressed by Yun Jian and he wanted her to avenge him when he asked her to hang out.
Once he recalled how Ji Shasha cheated on him with another guy back then—with the reason that he was lacking compared to that guy, Ling Yichen felt rage boiling within him.
Since Yun Jian was so capable, he thought of asking her to go with him as a way of support.
“Xinyi, let Yun Jian hang out with us! Heh, I’ll buy you candied fruits when I come back!” Ling Yichen tried bargaining with food.
“Pft, I don’t want it!” Chen Xinyi snapped her head away but her hands were still clutching Yun Jian’s wrist.
“I just want Jianjian to stay and keep me company!” she declared indignantly.
“What about... ten sticks of those candied fruits?” Ling Yichen continued tempting her.
Just when everyone thought that Chen Xinyi would stay resolved to her wish, they heard her agreeing to Ling Yichen breezily, “Deal!”
The corners of Yun Jian’s lips twitched but she kept it with a charismatic smile. Was she less important than food to Chen Xinyi?
“Alright, let’s go, let’s go! Heh!” Ling Yichen cheered and urged the group to leave.
Ji Shasha wore an impenetrable smile as well.
The group of teenagers walked out through the gate toward a busier area nearby Chen Xinyi’s house.
There were several lively spots around Chen Xinyi’s house and the streets there were filled with vendors and street snacks. A square around the busy area, specifically, had many middle-aged women shaking their hips following a fitness dance; the mood there was both energetic and cozy.
It was quite the bustling spot. With the fitness dance blasting its music loudly, it heightened the vibrant atmosphere of the area to its peak.
“They have a lot of fun games there and really tasty food. Come on, let’s check them out!” Ji Shasha walked at the front, speaking and directing the group toward the busiest area.
Taking two steps forward, it seemed like Ji Shasha remembered something as she turned around promptly to run to Yun Jian, hand stretched to hold her wrist to act like both of them were very good friends.
“There are interesting games there. They even have shooting games like shooting guns, arrows, and flying darts. Let’s take a look together!” Ji Shasha said with her hand out to hold Yun Jian.
Before her hand could touch Yun Jian’s wrist, however, the latter had avoided her discreetly.
“I don’t like others touching me,” Yun Jian spoke coldly as she stayed away from Ji Shasha’s attempt at holding her hand. Yun Jian did not like outsiders touching her. Moreover, Ji Shasha was reeking with a scent she did not like.
