Getting Outsmarted By The CEO - Chapter 6
E/D: Spirit Song
The next day after the drinking session with Jiang Yi and Yin Yuan, Ruan An’an was sober and contemplated the invitation by Chancellor Li yesterday.
She was suddenly enlightened and immediately made a call.
Oh God and my conscience —
It was true that Ruan An’an had fallen in love with the handsome Perky Butt at first sight, but she had never thought of purchasing him.
She had an idea.
Since ancient times, love alone could not capture one’s heart, only tactics would.
September 1st, the first day of college.
Ruan An’an visited the Department of Economics and Management to participate in a symposium when she was once a Computer Science undergraduate three years ago. Although she had forgotten the contents of the symposium, she could still remember the approximate location of the teaching building.
She could not help but sigh inwardly as she once again stood in front of the amphitheater as an undergraduate.
She was early and the classroom was completely empty. When she checked her phone after finding a seat on the last row, there were several unread messages in the WeChat group chat.
That group chat was the only WeChat group that Ruan An’an had not muted. It was years since she, Jiang Yi and Yin Yuan had formed it. It was said that the friendship between women would not end well, but it wasn’t the case for the three of them.
The group title, however, unlike their friendship, had undergone many changes – it began with adorable names like “Home for the Cuties and “Baby girls’ Gathering”, but as time went by, the genre changed completely. The current name of the group chat now was called “B*tch Squad”
Ruan An’an placed her almost empty backpack aside and entered the group chat.
She had sent her location in the group earlier and also stated her reason.
Yin-Has-No-Yuan : [@Ruan-An-Ruan? You little idiot, what did you say in the group before you returned to China? ‘Ah, three years of studying day and night is to make time for myself to have a happy life!’ How the hell are you going to get your happy life by going back to school? LMAO!]
No-Jiang-Yi : [Here’s a song for you…-[Because of Love]. Spotify link]
It was true, it was really because of love.
Ruan An’an could not help being a little excited when she thought of the person she was about to see. Completely unaffected by the teasing, she replied calmly: [Single b̲i̲t̲c̲h̲e̲s̲ are just jealous that I found true love. This is all jealous talk.]
The other two did not respond tactfully either and they directly bombarded her WeChat with vulgar emoticons.
Ruan Anan glanced at the classroom door almost every two seconds while chatting in the “B*tch Squad” group chat.
Although she had not seen the person she wanted to see, the anticipation was starting to overflow in her heart.
Suddenly, there was a familiar voice behind him——
“Classmate, is this seat empty?”
It was the sleepy, a little lazy, slight nasally voice.
It was like a pure stream flowing in an empty valley across her ears –a particularly pleasing and extremely familiar voice.
Ruan An’an froze for a second and quickly turned around.
He looked almost the same as the first time she met him — simple attire, white shirt and black pants without any extra patterns or embellishments.
Ruan An’an’s seat was the row against the wall. Behind him were the large opened windows of the lecture hall. The morning sun shrouded him from behind, as if he was ornamented with gold rims on his thin and tall silhouette.
Only two days have passed, but he seemed to look even more handsome today.
Ruan An An was caught off guard by his sudden appearance, not to mention that he was smiling at her too.
She widened her eyes, looked up at him, and saw his slightly curled lips. He raised his tone and asked casually, “Can I take this seat?”
Thanks for reading and have a good day.
