"I’ve already said that it is too expensive."
"Are you afraid that I’d want something in return for gifting you something? Don’t worry, I don’t have such intentions. I'm telling the truth. Tao Yueyue was sick and hospitalized before. Now that she’s not sick, I don’t need as much money anymore. When I saw this, I thought it looked pretty decent and bought it.”
"Is it not as you’ve said? Friendship has mutual benefits."
"Then you can give me a gift next time. My birthday is in October… No, March the 18th.”
"What kind of person can’t even remember their own birthday?” Lin Dongxue smiled and accepted the box. "Thanks then."
"You must look good when you wear it."
Lin Dongxue wondered if he was starting to chase after her. Ever since she kissed him last time, she had thought about it a lot. She was very relaxed and happy with Chen Shi. He had a mature charm and he was very considerate. If he really intended to chase after her, she wouldn’t mind giving him that opportunity.
However, when she looked at Chen Shi, she really thought that this bastard’s arrogant attitude was clear as day!
Xu Xiaodong came back in. "That scared me; he went to the bathroom... Dongxue, why is your face so red?"
"Oh, the air conditioner has been set to a very high temperature here."
"Brother Chen, I’m still playing the game from last time..." Xu Xiaodong sat down and continued to talk endlessly without awareness.
Time passed by minute after minute, and many couples passed by the window. Wang Shilun kept pacing in the cold wind. He noticed that it was already 9 o’clock. Chen Shi said, "It's getting too late; I should go back."
"Surely he didn’t get stood up, right?" Xu Xiaodong asked.
"Go out and see."
When they got outside, Wang Shilun reported, "Officers, I called her at seven o'clock and she said that she was on her way, but she hasn’t appeared yet."
"Did you get stood up?" Xu Xiaodong chimed.
"Impossible; it’s not like we haven’t seen each other before. She seemed to take to me when we had food together last time.”
"Don't make it sound so nice. If she didn’t have any ulterior motives, would she have come out to meet you in the first place?" Lin Dongxue said.
"Did you give her a call after?" Chen Shi asked.
"I did, but it didn't go through... Oh, yes. At seven o'clock, I seemed to hear a knock over the phone. It seemed very urgent. I was thinking at the time that she probably hadn’t left yet even though she said she was on her way.”
"Try calling her again!" Chen Shi's tone suddenly became very serious.
Wang Shilun dialled the number of Kong Tingting, but the phone just kept ringing. He said, "You see? She’s not answering again."
"You think something happened to her?" Xu Xiaodong pondered.
"No, maybe she’s in the car or maybe she can’t hear her phone ringing.” Lin Dongxue counter
