Getting Outsmarted By The CEO - Chapter 48
Check out my new novel: The Villainess Is Changing Her Role To A BroCon.
E/D: Spirit Song
“Not serious, it’s just the outer screen.” Gu Jue feigned poverty habitually. “I just changed to a new phone, and now the screen broke…”
He faked a sigh. “I can’t afford it.”
The screen just broke today, and its function was not affected, so he was not in a hurry to change it.
He did not think too much when he said it, and Gu Jue was about to add “Just kidding, I’ll get it repaired this afternoon” when he accidentally caught sight of Ruan An’an eyes.
—It was filled with “can’t even afford to repair a broken phone screen”, “what kind of world is this”, “how pitiful”…
Although his assumptions deviated a little from her real thoughts, he was particularly clear of what he saw… an expression of loving pity in her gaze.
… Is it really that terrible?
This is just a phone screen.
Although unaware of her thoughts, after seeing the look in the girl’s eyes, he suddenly did not want to fix it anymore, it did not matter anyway.
Gu Jue pondered, then put out a nonchalant expression, “It doesn’t matter. It’s just a little bit of the outer screen that is broken, and I can still use it.”
It was unbearable for Ruan An’an. She summoned her girlfriends, Yin Yuan and Jiang Yi for a drink. After blurting out every detail of the recent sweet moments she had together with Gu Jue, she recounted the incident about Gu Jue’s cracked cell phone screen in the afternoon.
When she finished, she looked at her cell phone screen as she recalled, “This really bothers me, really.”
Coincidentally, Ruan An’an’s cell phone accidentally slipped from her grip as she got down from the car an hour ago; it landed head first on the ground, leaving its mark on the upper right corner.
For others, a small defect on the screen was not a big deal, but it was quite the opposite for Ruan An’an.
“I remember that you accidentally broke your screen in junior year PE class. The good, obedient, rule-abiding girl actually cut school just to change her phone screen and even said she won’t be able to sleep well if she doesn’t-” Jiang Yi questioned, “An’an, don’t tell me you’re possessed?”
“Yes, you had this obsession since you were a child, and Perky Butt’s one broken phone screen cured it just like that?”
Ruan An’an indeed had an obsessive-compulsive disorder about broken screens. In fact, this OCD was not only limited to screens; vases or any ceramic products with cracks placed in front of her would trigger her OCD, making her so uncomfortable that she would rather pay others to get it repaired.
She could not get the incident from the afternoon out of her head.
The expression Gu Jue had when he looked at his cell phone was perfect. There was a slight pity, but he was also nonchalant about it. His long eyelashes drooped slightly when he commented “It could still be used anyway”, and even comforted her.
So what if he doesn’t have money to change the screen? This is what you call not being affected by trivial matters! Why change when it’s still perfectly functionable?
It may just be her imagination, but Ruan An’an did not want to stop such imagination.
She looked at her cell phone and muttered, “Anyway, I don’t want to change it…”
“You know? The location of this crack is symmetrical to his.” Ruan An’an turned her cell phone around and over again, liking the crack more and more. “I actually made a matching couple cracked screen!”
Yin Yuan: She’s absolutely possessed.
Jiang Yi: What kind of magical power does this Perky Butt have?
