Xiao Zhiming came to ask when he noted Ning Lanlan’s odd expression.
“S-Senior Zhiming, I’m fine.” This time, Ning Lanlan did not even spare a glance at Xiao Zhiming as she pulled Yun Jian to go away together distractedly.
It was not that she cared about what happened just now. While she was usually a happy-go-lucky kind of person, the scene earlier proved too much for her to take.
Shan Zihao was always acting like he wanted no one else but Yun Jian. Even though Ning Lanlan did not like the guy, she did not actually hate him to the core or anything. However, what Shan Zihao and Wan Siyao did just now had just flipped her view upside down. She found it hard to accept for the time being.
How could there be someone like this? Shan Zihao said he liked Yun Jian but he and Wan Siyao... More importantly, Shan Zihao was her Senior Zhiming’s best friend. Ning Lanlan did not know how she should bring up the matter to him.
Xiao Zhiming’s gaze dimmed when Ning Lanlan went away tugging Yun Jian with her. He seemed docile and gentle but he was very observant. As the cogs in his mind turned, he promptly thought of how Shan Zihao and Wan Siyao were not back yet.
Since those who were present were relatively decent teenagers, Xiao Zhiming did not relate the matter to a more complicated reason.
As Ning Lanlan pulled Yun Jian to the side, she told her softly once they were out of earshot, “Jianjian, I’ll make sure to kill Shan Zihao if he dares pester you again!”
Ning Lanlan even clenched her fists when she spoke, looking like she really wanted to send Shan Zihao to his demise. She had calmed down significantly from the shock now but she was furious about how Shan Zihao was hitting on Yun Jian.
“Mn.” Yun Jian smiled at Ning Lanlan who looked adorable because of how angry she seemed.
“The zoo’s closing soon. Let’s get going.”
It was some time past four right now while the zoo was closing at 4:30pm.
“But Wan Siyao and Shan Zihao aren’t back yet?” An Mo asked in doubt. She puffed her cheeks and commented feeling strange. “This is odd. It’s nearly 40 minutes now. Why are they taking so long?”
“I say we ignore them and go our way! Hmph!” Ning Lanlan came up to say abruptly and held Yun Jian’s hand to march toward the exit of the zoo.
“I think so too. That Wan Siyao and that guy don’t look like they’re up to any good. Let’s just go first!” An Mo grumbled as well and ushered the others to leave first.
Xiao Zhiming had wanted to stay and wait but he was persuaded into leaving by Ning Lanlan ultimately.
Just as the group strolled to the zoo’s exit, a guy’s huffing and panting were heard from behind them. “Why did you guys just leave like this? It took me a long time looking for all of you in there just now!”
It was Shan Zihao who ran up to them. Wan Siyao was right beside him.
The flush on their faces had yet to subside but their expression did not give anything away, just like nothing happened.
Shan Zihao went up to Yun Jian as he spoke, keeping his eyes on Yun Jian’s delicate face that lingered in his mind and invaded his dreams. His heart itched. His mind was still savoring the feel of Wan Siyao’s body earlier when he invited Yun Jian. “Yun Jian, do you want to go karaoke together tonight?”
It was an invitation but just as he finished his question, the phone in Yun Jian’s pocket rang. She answered it only for the group to hear a husky baritone voice of a guy drifting from the speaker.
“Xiao Jian, where are you?”
