The woman's brows furrowed slightly as she turned around, and she was greeted by the sight of a tall and broad young man with a pair of bright and piercing eyes. There were dense soul power fluctuations emanating from his body, and as he caught sight of the woman's stunning features, his heart rate began to climb.
He tried to adopt a nonchalant demeanor as he said, "You've been standing beside this pond for quite a while now, and I was getting rather worried. Let me introduce myself; I'm a freshman, but I was in seclusion prior to enrollment, so I was a little late and could only enroll directly into the fourth year."
The education here was split up into six year levels, and the fact that he had managed to enroll directly into the fourth year was an indirect brag in itself. Of course, he had earned himself the right to brag.
The woman's expression eased slightly, and she said, "Sorry, I'm waiting for someone."
"Oh? I don't think I've seen you here before." The young man didn't seem to have heard the rejection in her voice, and his smile grew even brighter.
"I'm sorry, I have a lot on my mind." The woman turned back to face the pond in a graceful manner as she spoke.
"Maybe you just need someone to listen to what's on your mind. How about I take you out for a drink?" the young man proposed as he strode over to her side.
The woman's expression finally darkened in response to his insistence. "Can you please just give me some peace and quiet?"
She was suddenly struck by the urge to laugh as she said this. Five years ago, she would've most likely thrown this annoying man into the pond.
However, she was no longer the impish and impulsive little girl she once was. Whatever she did, she had to consider the reputation of her family and couldn't just act as she pleased. Thinking back, those days were far more enjoyable than the present!
The young man shrugged in response. "Alright, then."
He wasn't some brazen criminal; no matter how attracted he was to the woman before him, he wasn't going to do anything out of line.
Just as he was preparing to leave, he suddenly noticed that a hint of a smile had appeared in the woman's eyes. He then immediately thought back to the instructions of his sly uncle, who had told him that a woman would gradually warm to a pursuer over time, and that there was always a chance as long as he didn't give up.
"Why are you smiling? Do you find me funny?" he asked in a curious manner.
The woman turned to him, and replied, "I was just thinking that if you were buzzing around like an annoying fly beside me five years ago, you'd already be in this pond, but I have no choice but to act like a refined gentlewoman now."
The young man stared at her in a gobsmacked manner. The words that were coming out of her mouth and her outward appearance were completely incongruent
