The next day, Chen Qi left the house on time.
She had never looked forward to going to school so much before and was even happier than going on a vacation.
Walking to Cornfield Road, the silhouette of the male student came into view.
Today he came earlier than yesterday, Chen Qi thought.
The guy’s figure went from far to near. Chen Qi could not wait to take a magnifying glass to look at him.
Chen Qi fixed her eyes on him without hesitation. Her eyes were bright and fiery as she stared at him.
The next second.
The male student seemed to notice this gaze and quickly raised his eyes.
The two were still about 5 meters apart, and their eyes met.
Chen Qi’s heart tightened.
She looked away in embarrassment, glancing around with her eyes floating.
She looked so bad today. She would have put on lipstick if she knew this would happen!
Don’t look at me, don’t look at me, don’t look at me, Chen Qi thought.
But come to think of it, she looked so ordinary, so maybe he did not pay attention to her at all.
Chen Qi thought to herself like this, not aware of the corners of her lips that gradually rose.
Not knowing whether this was a coincidence, over the next two weeks, Chen Qi kept seeing that male student on her way to school every day.
Although it was just a quick glance, she felt extremely happy.
The first year of high school was very tough. There was no school on the weekend, Chen Qi should have been happy, but she habitually got up early to go to school, wanting to meet that person.
Nan Li High School, when Chen Qi went downstairs to buy things for her mother yesterday, she discovered that his school was on the street opposite her neighbourhood.
Their paths to school were in opposite directions.
Fortunately, they went on the same road.
The weekend went by very slowly, and it was finally Monday again.
However, Chen Qi forgot to set the alarm clock last night, so she could only eat something casually and go out in a hurry.
At this time, there were more people on Cornfield Road than usual. Every time Chen Qi took a step, she checked the time.
She crossed Cornfield Road and the main road, then finally arrived at the school gate…
The miracle did not happen. Chen Qi did not see that person.
This time, Chen Qi set the alarm clock, but the domestic helper in her house thought she did not have to go to school today, so she turned off the alarm for her, causing her to be late today.
In fact, this was her usual school time. It was just that she intentionally went out early recently to meet that guy.
Chen Qi walked on the road without any hope.
As she expected, she still did not see him today. Chen Qi had not seen him for two days already.
The whole day, she felt like her soul had left her body.
Yu Xiao Tong, her close friend who also got accepted to Su Cheng High School, had known Chen Qi for many years, so she could always accurately detect her emotional changes.
Before the teacher came, Yu Xiao Tong sat next to Chen Qi and called, “Hey, what’s wrong with you today? You were in a good mood a few days ago. Why did you become so melancholy today?”
Chen Qi lay on the table like a salted fish and listlessly replied, “Nothing.”
“Am I still your close friend, huh? Just tell me if you have any troubles.” Yu Xiao Tong said.
Chen Qi sighed, sat up, and told her everything that had happened recently.
Yu Xiao Tong’s reaction was overly exaggerated, “Oh gosh, is this some kind of K-Drama plot? But it’s understandable for you to fall in love with him. If it were me, I would definitely never forget that male student either.”
Chen Qi nodded in response.
“But you don’t have to be so depressed. Maybe you’ll see him again tomorrow?” Yu Xiao Tong was always optimistic.
Chen Qi opened her mouth and was about to speak when a shout suddenly came from the classroom door, “Teacher is coming! Put your phones away!”
The class president nervously looked at the corridor, then turned around and said, “Yu Xiao Tong! Didn’t you hear what I said? The teacher is coming, and you still haven’t returned to your seat?!”
“Alright, I know,” Yu Xiao Tong impatiently responded, and before leaving, she laughed at Chen Qi, “Don’t be so unhappy, baby Chen Qi. Daddy will treat you to some fried chickens tonight.”
Chen Qi angrily replied, “Get out.”
“Daddy loves you hehe.” Yu Xiao Tong quickly pinched Chen Qi’s face before running away.
Chen Qi quietly took out a notebook and wrote on it:
—Tuesday, September 24th. Sunny day.
Still haven’t seen you today.—
Heaven really did not want her peacefully chasing her love. Chen Qi did not expect to encounter obstacles on her way to school again.
When her mother was making breakfast, she accidentally cut her hand with a knife, leaving a very long blood stain on her palm. Her father was on a business trip, and the domestic helper in her house also happened to ask for leave today.
Fortunately, the wound was not deep. Chen Qi stayed behind without hesitation, helped her mother bandage the wounds and cleaned the pieces of glass on the ground.
Then, she hurriedly left the house.
“Hey, little girl, why are you in such a hurry today?” The owner of the breakfast shop asked with a smile.
Out of politeness, Chen Qi stopped running and turned around, “Good morning Auntie, and it’s nothing. I just have something to do.”
Over the past few weeks, Chen Qi often came to this shop to buy food, so she was quite familiar with the shop owner.
“Have you had breakfast yet?”
“I just drank a glass of milk.”
The shop owner handed her the egg tart in her hand, “Haiya, you need to eat something even when in a hurry. You also have to pay attention to nutrition at your age.”
Chen Qi hesitated for a moment, then received it, “Madame, how much is it? I’ll pay.”
The shop owner waved her hand, “No need, you’ve come to my shop many times these days, so I give you this egg tart in return.”
“Thank you.” Chen Qi did not continue to refuse.
After saying goodbye, Chen Qi continued to run to school.
She glanced at the time.
It’s over, still haven’t made it today.
Chen Qi knew it was hopeless, so she stopped running and walked slowly.
“Wow, this egg tart also has beef, so worth it. I’ll come and buy more in the future.” Chen Qi looked at the egg tart in her hand as she muttered to herself.
The early morning sunlight was always dazzling. Fortunately, the densely staggered branches of geranium trees blocked the sunlight. The breeze blew, and the air blended with the unique fragrance of geraniums, refreshing and soothing.
Chen Qi thought so, and her eyes suddenly stopped.
In the distance, a familiar and eye-catching figure was walking toward her.
Like a god, with light all over his body, he gently descended from the sky.
The young guy’s eyes were clear and bright, the hem of his clothes swayed gentle with the wind, and his eyebrows raised slightly, which was his unique aura.
Fate? Or was this a coincidence?
Chen Qi desperately suppressed the corners of her lips that were about to rise. What should she do now?
The smile in her eyes immediately sold her out.
The two of them were gradually getting closer to each other.
Chen Qi tilted her eyes to look at the male student, her heart jumping with joy.
She could not help but laugh out loud.
The male student seemed to glance at her in confusion.
But Chen Qi did not notice.
