Translator: Nyoi-Bo Studio Editor: Nyoi-Bo Studio
It took a few days before subsiding those from laughing at the emoji created out of Mu Qingxue’s hilarious photo. Then, there was a drastic change in her reputation.
Everyone was praising her courage to admit her mistake. After realizing that she had blamed the wrong person, she shaved her head to express her sincerity in apologizing.
It would have been impossible for any other girl to do that.
They realized that instead of mocking her, her capabilities in bearing the consequences were worth learning.
There were even some who praised her became even more charming after shaving her head.
The unexpected twist in the event left Ye Qingran shocked and stunned.
She could not help but sigh again. The aura of the female protagonist was potent.
Even if the female protagonist was ordinary, there are still men who would be attracted by her.
Various gods would assist the female protagonist no matter what obstacles she encountered.
In summary, the female protagonist was a hundred times more vital than cockroaches. Regardless of the situation, the survival of the protagonist was guaranteed. Her life would still be restored even if she was killed.
Golden sunlight pierced through the thick curtains.
Ye Qingran woke up with tired eyes. She drew open the curtains of the floor-to-ceiling glass and opened the windows. Standing in front of the window, she stretched her body comfortably under the afternoon sun.
A car was heard below.
The young woman leaned on the windowsill with her chin on her hands. Her attention was drawn to a black car parked in front of the villa.
The vehicle happened to stop under her window.
Chu Yan, wearing a white shirt and black trousers, stepped out from his car dashingly.
Ye Qingran was about to greet him when the door of the villa opposite her swung open, with Mu Qingxue walking out from inside.
Pursing her lips, she observed the two with a playful expression since they had bumped into each other.
After Mu Qingxue walked out and noticed Chu Yan, she was slightly stunned.
Was this the man that Ye Qingran kept?
Regardless of the truth, he was certainly not an excellent person to collude with Ye Qingran.
He had such an attractive face.
Dongfang Yu and Long Junyao were both very handsome, but when compared with the man in front of her, both their looks and temperament were slightly inferior.
If Ye Qingran did not keep this man, he should then have a unique identity.
However, how did this man ended up together with Ye Qingran?
Was he not aware of Ye Qingran’s character or that she had deceived him?
If that was the case, she needs to reveal Ye Qingran’s true colours to him.
The idea made Mu Qingxue’s heart pound furiously.
She felt nervous and uneasy.
Despite this, she still decided to approach him. She gave the man a hesitating look without saying anything.
Chu Yan, meanwhile, did not glance at her as he walked by.
The man’s reaction left her speechless. This was the first time a man had ignored her like this.
She suddenly cried out as her body tilted and fell towards Chu Yan.
He managed to dodge quickly, resulting in Mu Qingxue falling and collapsing to the ground.
In astonishment, Mu Qingxue tearfully stared at Chu Yan with a grievance. But she acted apologetically and pitifully said, “I injured my leg. Would you mind supporting me?”
“I’m not free,” responded Chu Yan indifferently. The man glanced briefly towards the woman on the ground as he continued walking home without stopping.
It was almost impossible for Mu Qingxue to believe. Was this man blind?
A young and beautiful woman had fallen in front of him pitifully and weakly, and yet he did not show gentlemanly demeanour at all.
When she fell, he did not even offer a hand to support her.
She shamelessly took the initiative to ask for help, but the young man had declined to fulfil a simple gesture.
He appeared cold and distant.
How was he able to respond with apathy to her when they did not know each other?
Ye Qingran must have said something in front of him.
Gritting her teeth, Mu Qingxue unwillingly declared, “Ye Qingran and I are classmates.”
This sentence had successfully made Chu Yan stopped walking and turned around to look at her.
In her excitement, Mu Qingxue mumbled weakly, “Unfortunately, it seems that we have some misunderstanding between us. He said that he wanted to chase me before, but now he only bullies me. (Mu Qingxue was not aware that Ye Qingran was a girl. In some parts, Ye Qingran would be described as ‘he’ instead or ‘she’) I’d no idea what had happened, but he seems to have lost interest in me.”
“I think you’ve mistaken.”
“Are you sure? Is he still interested in me?”
“What I meant was, it’s not that he had lost interest in you, but he had never liked you to begin with!”
Chu Yan was getting impatient, and he went straight into the house after saying that.
Her jaw dropped in surprise when she heard the news. It took her some time to digest the information received.
Mu Qingxue stood up with her feet completely uninjured. She could even stomp a few times on the ground.
She was furious! It was not surprising that those associated with Ye Qingran were not good people. What a bunch of b*stards!
On the other hand, the woman leaning on the windowsill had witnessed the whole incident and almost died laughing.
Chu Yan was indeed the man that she had taken a fancy to. He was not affected by the aura of the female lead.
He was too insensitive and too firm. Even the powerful top-notch green tea (a term that describes a girl who seems innocent and charming but is calculative and manipulative) female lead could not seduce him with her aura. As a result, he was not plotted in the original novel.
She rushed down the stairs lightly and found Chu Yan drinking water in the kitchen.
Ye Qingran walked over and sat down on the kitchen island. She cheekily stared at Chu Yan, teasing, “Someone’s luck in love is flourishing.”
Chu Yan did not bother to lift his eyelids as he continued to drink the water.
“Did you know that the beautiful girl just now attended the same school as I did? Her name is Mu Qingxue, and she is our school belle. Many boys are interested in her and desired to be her vassals. There are even people who are willing to give up the Dragon Palace to be close to her.”
It was not long before Long Junyao provoked Ye Qingran to protect Mu Qingxue.
It is resulting in her teaming up with Chu Yan to take down the Dragon Palace.
Chu Yan covered his bottle and placed it aside. He looked at Ye Qingran and said, “Do you think I’m unaware that the person who lived opposite is Long Junyao?”
“How is that possible? On the night that Long Junyao came to mess with me, didn’t you see him when you returned? What are the chances that you are unaware that he lives across the street?” Ye Qingran gave a sly smile, “I was just curious as such beautiful girl had offered herself into your arms voluntarily. A girl with such an attractive appearance looking at you pitifully, weren’t you moved at all?”
The young man remained silent, but he looked deeply at Ye Qingran.
Ye Qingran felt a little uncomfortable under his stare because his gaze seemed to penetrate the deepest part of a person’s heart.
A smile spread across her face, “Don’t take it so seriously. It’s just a simple question. You don’t need to answer.”
While she spoke, she was getting ready to jump off the kitchen island.
But before she could do so, Chu Yan had stepped forward and stood directly in front of her. He propped his hands on both sides of the table, looking at her at eye level.
It was an extremely close call, with the position a little ambiguous.
Ye Qingran instantly stopped moving.
Neither did Chu Yan. The two maintained this position for quite some time.
He kept silent but continued to stare at Ye Qingran. His gaze seemed as calming as water; however, those affected felt as though a bolt of lightning had been struck when it was transmitted to others.
It causes one’s heart to increase, pounding like a drum beating.
Could it be that Chu Yan was angered that he intended to toss her out of the window?
Ye Qingran leaned back, “So be it then. Well… There’s no need to be angry, right?”
