Lu Yanchen’s cold face looked like a layer of frost that could not melt no matter what as he stood there looking at Cheng Qi expressionlessly. Shi Guang stood beside him, introducing the latter. When she was about to get to him, he interrupted, “Her husband!”
Shi Guang: “…”
This man, really now…!
Cheng Qi froze momentarily, feeling a little uncomfortable.
The deep eyes of this man were just like an x-ray that seemed to penetrate through his mind, illuminating his thoughts out in the air.
Lu Yanchen moved his fingers to curl Shi Guang’s loose threads of hair while holding her by the shoulders domineeringly as he let out a smug yet casual expression. “How are the preparations going?”
Displaying such affection in front of others had Shi Guang feeling cringy from head to toe. She could only look at Cheng Qi and chuckle out awkwardly.
Cheng Qi was tactful toward the situation. “You guys continue chatting… I’ll be heading off to prepare first.”
Someone who wanted to be a third party would always have a guilty conscience. Even though Cheng Qi knew that he was rather outstanding as a person, he had not expected that her boyfriend would seem to be even more outstanding than himself.
After he left, Lu Yanchen retracted his arms and took a couple of steps back, looking cold as a stranger. He gazed at Shi Guang’s face deeply while questioning in an icy tone, “Go on, tell me what’s going on!”
Shi Guang smiled out indifferently, “What’s going on? We were just chatting? Didn’t you see that for yourself? Right, didn’t you say that you would wait for me at the Ministry of Civil Affairs? Why did you come over?”
“Why not? You didn’t want me to come and spoil your happy ending?” Even though the man looked cold and aloof, his tone reeked of a sour, jealous taste.
Shi Guang sweated. “Since I had already promised you, I definitely wouldn’t let you lose your dignity. So, please be at ease. If I really wanted to find myself a boyfriend, it would also be after I get divorced with you!”
Lu Yanchen’s eyes darkened once more. “You had better keep your distance from those complicated men!”
He turned around, wanting to leave. Shi Guang was speechless and said nothing more, preparing to leave as well.
But at that, the voice of Young Master Lu drifted out once more. “Hold on!”
Shi Guang turned around and looked at him with a resigned expression. “What again?”
Averting his gaze slightly, Lu Yanchen uttered out softly, “Jiayou.”
“Got it, thanks!” Shi Guang was rooted for a moment before smiling out.
“I only don’t wish for you to throw my face away,” Lu Yanchen nearly lost his nerves from her smile as he turned around and walked away hastily.
Looking at his back view, Shi Guang gave off a stifled chuckle, “So coy…”
Walking back slowly, Shi Guang was playing with the bottled water in her hands the entire time, giving off an indescribably contemplative expression.
From far beyond, Xu Zixian’s voice called out, “Shi Guang, you’re back! Thankfully! We’re about to start soon!”
“You’re already prepared yourself,” Looking at Xu Zixian who already had her swimming cap and goggles on, Shi Guang placed the water down and opened her own sports bag, taking out her swimming cap and goggles as well.
After Shi Guang wore her swimming cap and goggles, the judges entered the venue as everything was preparing for the swim. Most of the swimmers had already reached the preparatory area.
Shi Guang looked around left and right. Strange, she hadn’t caught sight of her coach at all!
Just as she was thinking about that, Zhang Shulin rushed over.
“Are you ready?”
“Do it then. Go face it with an ordinary attitude and stay calm!”
Compared to the cold and quiet preliminary heats, the sports hall of today could only be described as a turbulent wave. The viewing area was packed full of spectators, and there were even quite a number of reporters! To Shi Guang’s greater surprise, she even caught sight of a fan group for her that burst out in cheers the moment she stepped out.
