Chapter 115: Can We Hold Hands for a Bit?
Translator: GodBrandy Editor: Kurisu
Song Shuhang first ordered the restaurant’s specialty fish head and the beef soup, and then he ordered an assortment of ten dishes.
The fish head restaurant’s pricing was quite economical… besides, not long ago he raided a small boss and earned some gold coins, he could still afford to treat them to this much.
It was just that the room was a bit airtight, and the air conditioner was on for too long, making it somewhat dry.
With a thought, Song Shuhang activated mental energy and slightly let out the chilliness from the ‘spirit-binding ice bead,’ and the temperature in the room became cozy.
Fifteen minutes later, the three roommates, Gao Moumou’s loli girlfriend, and the stalker Zhuge Zhongyang came to the private room.
“Shuhang, hope you don’t mind that I brought a few more people.” Gao Moumou pushed his glasses and said, “Though even if you did mind, it’s not like it means crap.”
“You already completed the conversation, how do you expect me to pick up after?” Song Shuhang said with a smile.
“No… actually, I want you to mind. That way I can find an excuse to drive away this big trouble next to me.” Gao Moumou showed no mercy and pointed at Zhuge Zhongyang.
He had enough of this super big trouble. It was rare for him and his girlfriend to spend time together, yet this guy came to be a third wheel.
Zhuge Zhongyang shook his head, “Gao Moumou, you’re being a tsundere again. How can such a handsome man like me be a big trouble?”
Gao Moumou’s face twitched, and he ignored the narcissist, changing the topic, “By the way, Shuhang, we brothers already asked out that chick Lu Fei.”
“What?” Song Shuhang was dumbfounded.
Tubo patted Song Shuhang, “Don’t thank us, we can only help you to this point. Do your best!”
“…” Song Shuhang laughed dryly, “I have to thank you guys?”
Li Yangde patted Song Shuhang as well, “Don’t be modest, after you succeed, just treat us to Ten Fragrances Fish Head.”
As they spoke, someone outside the private room knocked on the door.
“Come in.” Gao Moumou immediately shouted, squinting his eyes and making faces at Shuhang.
The door to the private room opened, and a girl with a small red face and voluptuous body stood at the door as she smiled shyly at everyone. It was none other than the maiden Lu Fei.
She wore a black-and-white striped t-shirt and short jeans that revealed her slender legs. Her long hair was bundled into a ponytail hanging on her left shoulder; she looked young and beautiful.
“Hi everyone, looks like I’m the last one.” She waved at everyone.
Tubo took a glance outside and discovered that this maiden came here alone.She’s got… plenty of guts. Or did she just really trust Song Shuhang?
“Just got here, we all just got here. Come, come, sit down and wait for the dishes to be served.” Gao Moumou passionately signaled Lu Fei to come in and seated her next to Song Shuhang.
“Student Shuhang, good evening.” Lu Fei tried to maintain a smile as she approached Song Shuhang. As expected, she immediately felt that breezy feeling.
“Good evening.” Song Shuhang smiled warmly as he said.
However, he sighed inside. He appreciated his roommates’ good intentions; unfortunately, he had no time for a girlfriend recently. Cultivation came first, and a girlfriend was temporarily just a pile of bones.
“Come, let’s toast to Shuhang’s first place in the five thousand meters.” Tubo raised his wineglass and winked at Gao Moumou and Yangde.
Last time it was three against one, and Song Shuhang alone got them all drunk. Today, they planned to take turns and take revenge for their previous humiliation.
Cheers continued and laughter never ceased.
With the three roommates deliberate guidance, Lu Fei quickly blended into Song Shuhang’s small circle of friends.
After three rounds of drinks, Lu Fei secretly clenched her small hands, having a plan in mind.
After they wined and dined to their hearts’ content, Song Shuhang called the server for the check.
“Ah Hang, I still have some business tonight, so I’m heading to my apartment first. I won’t return to the dorm.” Li Yangde stood up and signaled to his mates on the side.
Tubo immediately stood up and followed, “Same, same, I still have some business tonight as well, so I’ll be staying at Yangde’s place!”
“I’m leaving with my girlfriend, and I’ll take Zhuge Zhongyang with me.” Gao Moumou pushed his glasses, “Ah Hang, you’ll be the only one returning to the dorm, so escort student Lu Fei on your way. It’s dangerous for a girl to walk alone on the streets at night.”
Without waiting for Shuhang to reply, they all left with arms around each other’s shoulders.
Song Shuhang laughed as he shook his head and said to Lu Fei, “Student Lu Fei, let’s go.”
“Yup.” Maybe because she drank some wine, Lu Fei’s small face was a bit red.
Leaving the prosperous Ten Fragrances Fish Head, the two walked sided by side on the sidewalk.
“Student Shuhang, do you have a girlfriend?” Lu Fei suddenly asked with a voice as quiet as a mosquito. If Song Shuhang’s hearing didn’t improve, he wouldn’t have heard her.
“No for the time being.” Song Shuhang answered honestly.
Lu Fei chuckled, revealing her dimples, and she sighed inside in relief.
After the two walked another stretch of road, Lu Fei mustered up courage, “Student Shuhang, how about… we try to date?”
Song Shuhang hesitated, and looked somewhat surprised at Lu Fei.
This was the first time in his life that he wasn’t friendzoned by a girl, and was instead confessed to? If Mama Song knew, she’d definitely gather the whole family to celebrate, right?
After he stared blankly for a short while, Song Shuhang asked a foolish question, “You like me?”
“Yes, yes!” Lu Fei nodded vigorously; she liked him a lot, especially in the summer days! Song Shuhang brand human type cooler, those who use it, know it!
Song Shuhang was stunned for a good while.
Then he scratched his head, “Thanks… lately, for various reasons, I don’t have plans to date. It’s not you, it really only is because of my personal reasons!”
After all, he would be spending all his free time on cultivating. He had to cultivate for six hours or more every day… too much time was wasted on having a girlfriend, which he really couldn’t make time for.
As for emotions, he was a rookie, but he knew these things shouldn’t be done sloppily; a clear-cut decision needed to be made.
“What?” Lu Fei had a blank expression, not knowing how to continue their conversation.
It was completely different from the scenario her roommates bragged about, saying that girls chasing after guys was a piece of cake. It was too unreliable!
Then, she had a brain fade, and asked, “It’s okay even if we don’t fall in love, but can we hold hands ordinarily for a bit?”
“What?” this time Song Shuhang had a blank expression, not knowing how to respond.
After a while, he carefully answered, “Holding hands shouldn’t be a problem.”
“Alright then!” Lu Fei had a delighted expression without a shred of being broken-hearted; she accomplished her goal, which actually was just holding hands with Song Shuhang everyday.
The two of them could walk to class together, leave class together, go back to the dorms together, and that was enough. When she didn’t have Song Shuhang, she still had an air conditioner, even though it wasn’t as comfortable as Song Shuhang, still she could get by. Besides, she stayed in her room most of the time.
“Then let’s go back!” Lu Fei happily held onto Song Shuhang’s large hand like a content girl who had just got her toy, even her gait became more lively.
After sending Lu Fei back to her dorm, Song Shuhang returned to his own dorm.
Habitually turning on his computer, he refreshed Nine Provinces Number One Group’s messages.
Most of the earlier content was data and analysis on Medicine Master’s checkup on fellow daoists and their child daoists who entered the mysterious island. However, the specific reason as to what caused the memory loss still could not be conjectured.
At this time, a member who hadn’t shown up for a while popped up.
It was Su Clan’s Seven, the famous battle maniac of the group.
“Seven, why haven’t you been on the past two days? How are Sixteen’s injuries?” Northern River’s Loose Cultivator immediately inquired.
Northern River’s Loose Cultivator had been silenced for one day, but he was unexpectedly released today?
Su Clan’s Seven sighed deeply, “Sixteen… has run away from home.”
