Get To Know Your Ex-Girlfriend - Chapter 18
Hunting Legally (Arc 1)
The Escape 18
Shen Shuiyan is serious, the little tiger she could not get out of her mind.
If she just beats Zou Yun Fei up, she still feels that it is too cheap for Zou Yun Fei.
The things that she didn’t care much about before now became extraordinarily important.
Although Little Tiger might not be the original Xin Lan, there was no doubt that she wanted to avenge that ‘Xin Lan’, otherwise she wouldn’t have beaten up Zou Yun Fei.
Since Little Tiger wanted to, of course she had to help.
However, the fact that she is used to this kind of thing anyway is not at all a problem for her.
Once Xin Lan was baffled, her first reaction was actually that Shen Shuiyan’s hands were so cold.
“Your hands are so cold.”
“It’s like this in winter, after all, the hands have just been outside.”
“Hey you don’t change the subject.”
“There’s no changing the subject.”
“It’s just discussion time anyway to go for a bit, I’ll do the spying.”
The unspoken spy of spies.
Of course Shen Shuiyan couldn’t possibly go and ‘defect’ now, she sat in her seat and listened to the lecture with a dual purpose, her mind deducing her plan.
Xu Deng listened to the clouds beside her, not knowing what Xin Lan and Shen Shuiyan were playing at, but she also knew better than to ask.
At lunchtime, the canteen was considerably less crowded.
Everyone was in a hurry, and even though it wasn’t the hunting period, the air seemed to be filled with a tense atmosphere.
Xu Deng saw that Xin Lan and Shen Shuiyan had little expression on their faces, so she didn’t ask much.
In a little circle of trees not far from the canteen, Zou Yun Fei leaned against a tree trunk.
“Yun Fei, what are we waiting for here?” Chu Lu asked in confusion, and Zhou Zhou also looked confused.
“Shen Shuiyan asked me to wait for her here.” Zou Yun Fei had a complicated expression, unable to say what he was feeling.
As he prepared to go out from the classroom, he locked eyes with Shen Shuiyan, who made a gesture to him.
“Didn’t that bitch go to that person’s team, and she asked you to meet her?” Chu Lu glared, with an expression that wanted to curse.
“Can’t you talk?” Zou Yun Fei glared at him, Chu Lu moved his lips and closed his mouth.
Zou Yun Fei still had complicated feelings towards Shen Shuiyan, Shen Shuiyan was the goddess he had not reached, he had treated her as one of his own when he was in a team and was willing to hold up and protect her, he did not expect Shen Shuiyan to leave without saying a word, and let him be taught a lesson by Xin Lan.
He was betrayed and disgraced again, and the wounds on his body still indicated the tragedy of that day.
But when Shen Shuiyan said she wanted to see him, he still came.
One wanted to know why Shen Shuiyan had made an appointment to see him, and the other wanted to know why Shen Shuiyan had changed teams without saying a word.
Shen Shuiyan walked over, quickening her pace as she was about to approach.
She spoke up before Zou Yun Fei could say anything.
“I have remembered a few clues of Xin Lan’s, this is the one I drew down when she wasn’t looking, there are others, but I only drew one for fear of being discovered, you guys keep it.”
Shen Shuiyan took out a piece of paper in her pocket and stuffed it into Zou Yun Fei’s hand.
Zou Yunfei’s words were blocked and he was a bit stunned.
“Shuiyan, are you ——?”
“It’s a very long story so I’ll make it short, I was talking to Xin Lan about how I went back to the school building to get my stuff. That evening Xin Lan originally wanted to rob my things, I simply could not beat her, who knew she would be so strong, then she asked me if I wanted to be her teammate, but I said I have teammates, you guys are my teammates, but Zou Yun Fei you and her —— she left a phrase that she went to find you, and left, yesterday I never had the opportunity to contact you guys, today when discussing I deliberately remembered two, drew one to you guys.”
Shen Shuiyan spoke quickly, and looked in the direction outside the grove from time to time as she spoke, her expression a little panicked.
She tried her best to avoid saying the word ‘fragment’ to avoid being grounded.
Zou Yun Fei’s three people gave her a dumbfounded look, and after a few seconds, Zou Yun Fei figured it out and broke into a smile.
The movement of the smile was so big that it pulled the wound on the side of his mouth, causing him to bare his teeth in pain.
“I just thought how could you have somehow run to another team, it turned out that she threatened you, but why did she ask you if you wanted to be her teammate?” The stone in Zou Yun Fei’s heart fell to the ground, because he felt embarrassed for wronging Shen Shuiyan before, he then said that Shen Shuiyan couldn’t be the kind of person who suddenly would betray.
“I had a bit of a friendship with her, the relationship wasn’t bad.”
“So that’s how it is.”
“By the way, how did you get that bruise on your face? Is it so bad that you guys are fighting internally? Yesterday we were all robbing each other on the girls’ side too, it was horrible, Xin Lan and I said that she beat you up, but how is it possible, a girl like her couldn’t have beaten someone up like that even if she was stronger.” Shen Shuiyan forced a little tear out of her eyes, setting off her slightly pale face to become even more charming.
Zou Yun Fei’s expression twisted for a moment and he responded with a grim face.
He couldn’t admit in front of the girl he liked that he had been beaten up by a girl, or an ex-girlfriend, without losing face.
“Can’t talk about it, I’ll go first so she doesn’t suspect me anymore, we’ll meet tonight for hunting time if we get a chance.”
“Wait, you’re here why don’t you just stay with us?”
“I’m a girl, you cannot let me live in the boys’ dormitory, and I’m on her side now, so I can still help you guys out a bit and find a chance to get that thing.” Shen Shuiyan said helplessly, and Zou Yun Fei’s heart warmed.
“It’s still you who has thought of everything.”
“Only one team can survive, it must be us!” Shen Shuiyan said as if in encouragement and hurriedly turned around to leave.
As she turned around, the corners of her lips brought a sly smile.
It was true that only one team would survive, but it had to be her and Little Tiger’s team.
“Yun Fei, could it be that something is odd?” Zhou Zhou was a bit worried, was it really such a good thing to go to another team and still think about their team?
“Just you’re suspicious, forget it if you don’t believe in it.” The smile on Zou Yun Fei’s face diminished slightly, he still said he was a brother, he didn’t help at all when Xin Lan did it that day, and now that Shen Shuiyan came to his aid, he actually doubted Shen Shuiyan.
Xin Lan is a psychopath, how could a girl as soft and weak as Shen Shuiyan be her opponent, it’s a good thing that she has a bit of friendship, otherwise Shen Shuiyan might not be able to tell what happened to her now.
When she thought of the way Shen Shuiyan looked at him before she left, it was clear to her that she didn’t feel nothing for him, so she was reluctant even when she was in another team.
Girls, in this kind of environment, always have to rely on boys.
See how long she can be complacent, Xin Lan!
“Oops, I just forgot to ask Shen Shuiyan how many things are on Xin Lan’s side.” Chu Lu was a little crestfallen, and Zou Yun Fei was that way, and he believed it.
He had known that Zou Yun Fei liked Shen Shuiyan, besides what good did it do for people to lie to them?
“This situation now is only a fight, Xin Lan is so powerful, if Shen Shuiyan willingly followed, it would be a good way to snatch them out, there is no need to come here to act, that is, for Zou Yun Fei can not forget it well.” Zhou Zhou was dragged by out Chu Lu and said a series of reasons, the suspicion in his heart was also dispelled.
Zou Yun Fei listened soothingly from the side, thinking that this was what was going on.
When Shen Shuiyan went back, she put things into a short sentence.
“They believed it?”
Xin Lan wasn’t too surprised, no matter how intelligent one is, one is always easily confused by preconceived notions like that, and one always adds a filter to those they like, if Shen Shuiyan was selling herself as weak in front of Zou Yun Fei, he would probably immediately burst with chauvinism and want to protect her properly.
“I told you it wouldn’t be a hassle, look how long I’ve only been away and it’s a fake for them, let them be happy first.” Shen Shuiyan nodded her head, completely lacking the vainness of a calculating person.
Xu Deng was silent beside her, feeling as if she had heard some kind of conspiracy.
Hmm, let’s pretend like we didn’t hear it then.
There are only three people in the dormitory for the time being; Xiaochun hasn’t returned and is nowhere to be found.
The three people in the dormitory didn’t care, they weren’t on the same team anyway.
“That thing should have been taken care of, right?”
Shen Shuiyan thought of the corpse in the wardrobe, she always felt that the unpleasant smell was still there, and it was very strong, not sure if it was the lingering smell she hadn’t cleared plus her mental effect, or if the corpse was really still there.
“Just take a look and you’ll see.”
Xin Lan pulled open the wardrobe, which contained only a pile of blood-stained clothes.
“Was it disposed of, yet where could it be thrown away?” Shen Shuiyan thought about what Xin Lan and Xiaochun had said in the morning, but the whereabouts of the body was also confusing.
With so many people missing from the class, where was the body?
“Maybe it’s missing.”
“For as long as it’s a corpse it will be recycled just like the rules address?” Shen Shuiyan thought again of the two strange ghosts that were singing a children’s song earlier, maybe the dead body would be recycled a bit more?
Xu Deng listened beside them, and according to their meaning, there was a corpse inside this room last night, and she had originally walked towards the bed above this wardrobe, no wonder Xin Lan had stopped her.
She didn’t observe that carefully, but she thought that someone had jumped off the building last night, and the body seemed to have disappeared this morning.
“What we saw the other day, was what that man said true or not?”
They were talking about things that had nothing to do with clue fragments and the way out, they wouldn’t be banned, they were all on the same team now, and Shen Shuiyan didn’t care about Xu Deng, she believed that Xu Deng was a person with insight and was unlikely to turn against them in this situation.
“Who knows, maybe it’s real, maybe it’s not.”
That punishment game, the human skinned ghost had said at the beginning, there were many more people than just them involved in the four hundred person game.
Whether it was true or not meant nothing, Xin Lan was certain that it was possible to get out of here, after all, in the subsequent episode, Zou Yun Fei had taken Shen Shuiyan out.
The atmosphere was quiet, no one spoke.
Shen Shuiyan suddenly felt a warm feeling on her hand and looked at the white and slender hand she had resting on her own.
“Look at you, your hand is so cold, don’t you know to put it in your pocket?”
Xin Lan was counting, and her hand was suddenly held tight.
What the author has to say:
Schoolboy: My fingers are cold
Sister Lan: Here, I’ll cover you up
Schoolboy: Then can I put in two fingers today?
Sister Lan: ???
Today’s student is also a flirt, Sister Lan can not keep up with the speed of the car every day hahahaha
