Chapter 31 – He likes me? (1)
Sitting in Xu Chang’s car, Qin Xiangnan remembered Shen Zhiyang. If it weren’t for him mentioning this name, she would probably never remember him in this life.
She and Zhen Zhiyang did stay together during high school, and later Shen Zhiyang went to the same university as her. She studied journalism while Shen Zhiyang took up Finance. However, after her freshman year, she and Shen Zhiyang broke up due to various reasons. Shen Zhiyang later went abroad. Since then, she has never seen or contacted him again.
Although she and Xu Chang have not seen each other for over ten years, her brother Qin Xiangbei was admitted to Xu Chang’s university and went to city B for medical studies. She occasionally heard news about Xu Chang from Qin Xiangbei’s mouth.
She has heard that Xu Chang was still popular as he was in high school. She didn’t ask Qin Xiangbei more about the specific situation.
This time, Xu Chang asked her if she still could not forget Shen Zhiyang. The answer was no.
She looked at Xu Chang who was driving with one hand, as if he had misunderstood something.
“Xu Chang, I broke up with Shen Zhiyang when I was a freshman. For so many years, I have already forgotten him.”
Xu Chang seemed relieved. Since Xu Chang asked her such an awkward question, it wouldn’t be fair if she didn’t ask one herself.
“So, how about you? How many girlfriends did you have over the years? When did you and Zhao Cancan broke up?”
Xu Chang paused after listening to her question.
Seeing him not answering, Qin Xiangnan felt that her question was too straightforward. Perhaps he and too many girlfriends and was embarrassed to tell her. She wanted to add a sentence but didn’t expect him to speak.
“No one. Zhao Cancan was not my girlfriend.”
Qin Xiangnan froze. Both his first and second sentences surprised her.
Never had a girlfriend? Xu Chang? How can that be possible? Who is Xu Chang? Good body, popular, and have good financial status, many girls like him.
In the second half, Zhao Cancan was not his girlfriend. Has she misunderstood all these years?
Qin Xiangnan doesn’t know how to continue the conversation. She felt embarrassed about her questions.
After a moment of silence, the car slowly drove into Qin Xiangnan’s neighborhood.
Stopping in front of her house, Qin Xiangnan took her things, opened the door, and got out of the car.
Before entering the building, she stood, looked at Xu Chang and said to him: “Thank you for today, I’m going up.”
“Okay, rest early. I’ll watch you go then leave.” Xu Chang said.
“Be careful on the road.” After speaking, she turned and walked in.
“Qin Xiangnan! Do you know why?” Xu Chang suddenly stopped her.
Qin Xiangnan didn’t seem to understand what he was talking about and turned back and said, “Ah?”
“Because for so many years, I have been unable to remove a person from my heart.” He looked at her and said this.
Qin Xiangnan froze.
“Go up. The wind is strong outside.” He suddenly laughed.
“Oh.” She turned and hurried in.
After a while, the light in a room on the third floor was lit, and a figure was indistinctly cast on the curtain.
Xu Chang looked up at this figure and smiled slightly. Then, he started the car and left.
Qin Xiangnan heard the sound of the leaving car, she secretly drew a corner of the curtain and looked out. It was dark, only a few street lights illuminate the road. The wind was strong outside, and the branches of the tree were shaking and swaying.
Qin Xiangnan was exhausted. She had a headache during the day because of the typhoon, so she went to bed early in the morning.
The morning of the next day, she woke up very early. She got out of bed and opened the curtains, the sun shone brightly. It was sunny and it seems that the typhoon has passed.
Qin Xiangnan first called her brother. He didn’t tell her about Dr. Lin, which was an important matter. Because she was curious, she asked Xu Chang directly last night.
She called Qin Xiangbei.
The call was connected, and Qin Xiangbei’s groggy voice came across.
“Qin Xiangbei! What time is it already and you’re still sleeping?”
“I was on a night duty yesterday. Can’t I make up for the lack of sleep?” His lazy voice came from the phone.
“I’m going to ask you something. Dr. Lin from the orthopedic department was your college classmate?”
“Who?” He didn’t seem to be fully awake yet.
Qin Xiangbei sat up suddenly from the bed.
“You said Lin Rui’er?” He was finally awake.
“Is her name Lin Rui’er? Your college classmate and the beautiful doctor and Xu Chang’s colleague.” She tried to confirm.
“Yeah. Why are you asking about her?” Qin Xiangbei was puzzled. “It wouldn’t be because of the misunderstanding about Xu Chang?”
“Don’t talk nonsense. Qin Xiangbie, tell me everything you know!”
