“What a coincidence,” Yun Jian chorused with crescent eyes.
She was not averse to Chu Ning. In fact, she quite liked her character.
Chu Ning was lively and carefree, so much so that she sometimes acted a little silly. Nonetheless, she would reel in her insouciant side when there was something serious.
After the time they spent together, Chu Ning had already gone from calling Yun Jian by her name to cutely calling her “Yun Jian Jianer” or “Yun Jianer”. Undeniably, the addition of the suffix “-er” made them feel closer to each other.
“Wow! Chu Ning, is this handsome young man your friend too?” While Yun Jian and Chu Ning exchanged greetings, a girl who was with Chu Ning came over with a group of people.
The girl glanced at Si Yi with heart eyes, looking infatuated.
“Nope, he’s all Yun Jian Jianer’s!” Chu Ning glared at the girl, seemingly not the friendliest with her.
The girl, Xiao Guizi, was the girlfriend of one of Chu Ning’s good guy friends.
Chu Ning herself was rather boyish, although she was a girl and looked sweet and darling. She grew up playing with a bunch of boys and they called each other brothers. The boys had never taken her as a girl, going rough and boisterous when they played together.
Despite being a girl and being laid back in nature, Chu Ning was actually the most skilled among her friends. This was how she was chosen by Ge Junjian and recruited as one of the candidates for the Advanced Special Forces.
Today, Chu Ning was here with her good guy friends to hang out on the main streets. The other girls were girlfriends of her friends. Like Xiao Guizi, she was the girlfriend of Chu Ning’s best friend.
It explained her annoyance when Xiao Guizi asked about handsome Si Yi right in front of her best friend. Chu Ning showed anger for him! Of all the girls out there, he got someone so flirty as his girlfriend!
That was why she snapped at Xiao Guizi. When Chu Ning stated that Si Yi was all Yun Jian’s, she was warning Xiao Guizi that Si Yi belonged to her friend – he was taken!
“Oh...” Xiao Guizi stood aside after making a response but her eyes lingered on Si Yi.
She had thought that her current boyfriend was handsome, but she was struck with a realization the moment she saw Si Yi. A true charming man was not someone like her current boyfriend.
Xiao Guizi’s boyfriend and Chu Ning’s best friend, Meng Xiyao, was completely unaware that his girlfriend was acting any different.
He was someone friendly, so he happily invited both Yun Jian and Si Yi, “Since we know each other, why don’t we walk around together? We’re no strangers anyway!”
Chu Ning nodded fervently with Meng Xiyao’s words and told Yun Jiang, “Yes, Yun Jian Jianer, let’s go! Okay?”
She stuck her tongue out and winked at Yun Jian.
Yun Jian responded to Chu Ning’s anticipation with a nod and smiled before turning to Si Yi. “You can go back first. I’ll hang out with them.”
All she could think of during their stroll was Old Madam Xu’s words, thus making her blush like a peach that looked absolutely dear.
Now that she saw Si Yi, she would blush as well, that was why she wanted him to go back first. Despite that, Si Yi looked at her unwaveringly. “I’ll go with you.”
