Translator: Nyoi-Bo Studio Editor: Nyoi-Bo Studio
Xu Shuai was dying to get a detailed explanation from Xu Weilai before she left to meet Xiao Chun, but because Gu Yu was fiercely protective of her, he never had the guts to stop her.
Thus, he could only settle for the next best alternative and proposed, “In that case, I want to go to the police station with you as well.”
“That way, I’ll be able to get a grasp of the full picture from Xu Weilai right after she meets Xiao Chun,” he thought.
This time, Xu Weilai had no further objections and merely shrugged and agreed, “You could come along if you wish. I have no objections.”
When the trio arrived at the police station, Xu Weilai put in a request to meet Xiao Chun. However, Xiao Chun refused and simply informed the police to pass on the message that there was nothing much for her to say to Xu Weilai after doing such a thing to her.
Xu Weilai wasn’t surprised by the fact that Xiao Chun would decline the meeting. The more she refused, the more it goes to show that her conjectures could be right.
She then asked the police officer to pass a message back to Xiao Chun, “Please help me to convey to her that I’ll wait by the entrance until she’s willing to meet me. Note that my injuries are quite severe and I’m actually advised to stay in bed to recuperate.”
After a pause, she added, “Remember to emphasize to her about the severity of my injuries.”
The police officer nodded and left.
Xu Shuai couldn’t help but interrupt, “Xu Weilai, will this work? Will Chunchun even care about the severity of your injuries?”
However, Xu Weilai couldn’t be bothered to explain to him and merely maintained her composure while she waited in silence.
Gu Yu, too, sat down beside Xu Weilai calmly without even sneaking a glance at Xu Shuai.
Xu Shuai was so frustrated that he nearly broke down. “Fine. Are they looking down on me and flaunting about their mutual affection?” Xu Shuai thought.
“Hah! I could pretend to keep my cool as well,” he decided.
He then strode over, sat down beside Gu Yu and stared at the ground.
An hour later, the police officer returned and notified, “Xiao Chun has agreed to meet you. Please follow me.”
Xu Weilai quickly stood up and thanked him.
Xu Shuai stared at her silhouette as she followed after the officer and he couldn’t help but admire her. “Although I’m close with Chunchun, I don’t even know her as well as Xu Weilai does…” he mused.
“Perhaps women tend to understand each other better,” he concluded.
Xiao Chun was already seated on a chair when Xu Weilai entered the room. She had shaved off some pounds within just a few days. Her jawline had become sharper and her face had become leaner, which made her eyes seem especially large.
Her eyes used to be animated and always appeared as if they were smiling. But now, it was dull and lifeless as though they were coated with a layer of dust, making it impossible to read her emotions.
Xu Weilai strode over and pulled out the chair across from Xiao Chun before she sat down.
For a moment, it was completely silent in the room and only the sound of their breathing could be heard.
Xiao Chun swept one fleeting glance at Xu Weilai’s face and her eyes lingered on her pale lips for a second before she quickly turned away. “Say whatever that you want to say. If you have nothing better to say, then leave,” she spat out icily.
Xu Weilai wasn’t bothered by her cold attitude and merely placed her hands on the table between them before clasping them together gently. A few seconds later, she asked, “Chunchun, have you never thought of me as a friend?”
Xiao Chun replied quickly without any hesitation. In fact, she did not even bat an eyelid and added on mockingly, “If you’re here to ask ridiculous questions like this, then spare yourself the effort. I’m a bad person. I’m just like those evil antagonists whom you see in novels and TV shows and I’ll do all kinds of terrible things. I befriended you for the sake of helping Yun Rou, so don’t think too highly of yourself.”
Xu Weilai smiled when she heard what Xiao Chun said. “Since you’re Yun Rou’s ally, then she’s probably the one who instructed you to give me the bird’s nest donkey-hide gelatin cake. The one that she tasked you to give to me it probably laced with poison but why aren’t the ones that I received from you poisoned?” she questioned.
