When Jiang Baiwan was returning back, her whole body was leaping for joy. She solved a big problem and everything was ready, all that was needed was to open the shop. She felt so high that she was floating on her bike on the way home.
However, just when she arrived at the door of her house, Jiang Baiwan’s joyful mood went down as she saw an unexpected visitor.
“Xiao Wan.” Shui Lan’er stood in front of Jiang Baiwan’s house, looking at her with big misty eyes vaguely filled with tears. “I—I’ve been waiting for you for a long time.”
“……Why didn’t you give me a call?” Jiang Baiwan was impatient to deal with Shui Lan’er, wishing she could quickly get out of her sight. “What is it? You even came to my door to look for me.”
Shui Lan’er clutched her chest, as if she was about to faint at any moment. She looked at Jiang Baiwan’s expression, bit her lips, and suddenly knelt down with a “Thump”.
Jiang Baiwan was startled by Shui Lan’ers actions and took two steps backward. The back of her head bumped against the security door of her house. She sucked in a breath but she didn’t have time to rub the injury as she quickly reached out to help Shui Lan’er up. “What are you doing? What do you mean by this? Touch porcelainscam to blackmail pedestrians by pretending to be injured? Can you get up quickly?”
“No, I won’t get up.” Shui Lan’er was firm. “I’m here to ask for your forgiveness. If you don’t forgive me, I won’t get up!”
Jiang Baiwan listened to Shui Lan’ers words and her forehead wrinkled terribly. She held Shui Lan’ers wrist and stared at her for a moment, then let go.
“Apologize?” Jiang Baiwan pursed her lips. “What are you apologizing at me for?”
Shui Lan’er didn’t notice Jiang Baiwan’s emotion. She said in a mournful voice, “A while ago, you were smeared all over the Internet. It was done by Yunhan.”
Sure enough. Jiang Baiwan thought expressionlessly.
“But Yunhan didn’t mean it!” Immediately afterwards, Shui Lan’er said this sentence with great strenght.
Jiang Baiwan couldn’t help looking at Shui Lan’er, wondering what other reasons she could come up with.
She heard Shui Lan’er say, “Yunhan did all this for me. If I hadn’t performed badly in the variety show, Yunhan wouldn’t have made such a mistake for me, but Xiao Wan, Yunhan did all this because of love. He was only blinded by his emotions so he made such a mistake for a moment.”
Jiang Baiwan: “……” Oh sh*t, mother*cker??? Because of what? Can you say that again?
Shui Lan’er of course was still talking, “This thing called love is just too torturous; it caused Yunhan to make an unforgivable mistake. My conscience is troubled. I can’t watch you being bullied by people online like this, so Xiao Wan, I came to you to apologize.”
“All of this started because of me.” Shui Lan’er sobbed. “Let them end because of me too.”
Jiang Baiwan was held in place by Shui Lan’ers eloquent speech and couldn’t recover for a long time—— She felt like her three viewsthe three fundamental views or values of a person: one’s world view, values of worth and philosophy in life had shattered and was in the process of restructuring.
Shui Lan’er was still kneeling there, looking up at Jiang Baiwan with her small face, begging for forgiveness. “Xiao Wan, we used to be good friends, but later we had some misunderstandings which led to hatred. Now that you’re already…… Can we get back to before?”
“Only love can dissolve all hatred. Xiao Wan, join me in loving the world.” Shui Lan’er extended her hand to Jiang Baiwan. “I believe you can do it.”
Jiang Baiwan faced Shui Lan’er, took a deep breath, and finally shook her head decisively. “No, I don’t have that in mind at all.”
Shui Lan’er was startled and wondered why Jiang Baiwan rejected her.
Jiang Baiwan’s brows tightly furrowed as she looked at Shui Lan’er in front of her and said, “I won’t forgive Chu Yunhan for what he did to me. He poured dirty water on me because of love? That’s because that love is for you, he has nothing but malice towards me.”
“Shui Lan’er, I don’t exactly know what you’re thinking. Are you really that innocent?” Jiang Baiwan clenched her fists, her body slightly trembling. “You showed up at my door and knelt down suddenly, then said that…… whole speech. Are you apologizing or forcing me to bow down?”
Jiang Baiwan was really angry. She hadn’t been this angry for a long time. Chu Yunhan doing such a thing was nothing compared to the anger Shui Lan’er made her feel right now.
She bent down again and grabbed Shui Lan’ers wrist. Shui Lan’er still wanted to stay on the ground, but was ‘pulled’ up by Jiang Baiwan.
Jiang Baiwan didn’t let go immediately and gazed into Shui Lan’ers eyes. Her pair of beautiful almond eyes full of anger. “You’re just selfish. Shui Lan’er, you’re the most selfish person I have ever met.”
Shui Lan’er met Jiang Baiwan’s eyes, and for a moment, she actually felt panicked and at a loss. In the deepest part of her heart, Shui Lan’er faintly felt that what she did was indeed very similar to what Jiang Baiwan said.
No, impossible, how could she be that kind of vicious woman?!
“What are you doing?!”
Just as the two of them were facing each other, a man’s roar suddenly rang out. Before Jiang Baiwan had time to let go of Shui Lan’er, she felt her hand loosened, and the next second, Shui Lan’er was taken away by someone.
Chu Yunhan hugged Shui Lan’er with a distressed face, whispering to comfort her, “Lan’er, are you okay? Is this bad woman bullying you again? Don’t worry, with me here, she can’t do anything to you.”
Jiang Baiwan was simply annoyed. Did this foolish couple install a GPS on her? How come they just won’t let her go?
Immediately afterwards, Jiang Baiwan heard Shui Lan’er ask Chu Yunhan, “Yunhan, how did you find me? I obviously came out behind your back.”
Chu Yunhan showed a doting smile at Shui Lan’er and stroked her hair. “Silly, I installed a GPS on your mobile phone so that no matter where you go, I will be able to find you.”
Jiang Baiwan: “……” What the hell?
Shui Lan’er was moved and her face was full of shyness. “Yunhan, you’re so kind to me.”
Watching the two people grandly performing in front of her, Jiang Baiwan’s face was expressionless, only feeling that her anger just now wasn’t really worth it.
Chu Yunhan was still holding Shui Lan’er in his arms, while Jiang Baiwan had already taken out the key from her pocket and opened the door. It was only when she closed the door with a “Bang” that Chu Yunhan responded—— Didn’t he wanted to give Jiang Baiwan trouble?
How dare she make his beloved Lan’er kneel down for her?! This woman, Jiang Baiwan, was absolutely unforgivable!
“Yunhan.” Shui Lan’er pulled Chu Yunhan who was about to knock on the door. “I came here today to resolve the misunderstanding between us with Xiao Wan. Don’t think she’s bullying me, I took the initiative to kneel down and apologize to her.”
Chu Yunhan’s face was full of heartache. “Lan’er, why will you kneel down to such a woman? She doesn’t deserve it. Have you forgotten how she used to bully you?”
Shui Lan’er smiled and shook her head. Just as she was about to speak, the door that was closed just now opened again. Jiang Baiwan stood at the door with a large basin of water in her hand and splashed the two people with a swift movement!
The water immediately chilled Shui Lan’er and Chu Yunhan, but Jiang Baiwan had already closed the door once again with her quick hands and feet. Chu Yunhan wanted to smash the door, but he heard Jiang Baiwan inside the house shouting, “If you dare to smash the door, I will call the police! Chu Yunhan, you won’t want to be dragged out by the security guards and the police.”
Chu Yunhan’s movements froze. He glanced at his side looking like a drowned rat at Shui Lan’er, whose head and face was covered with water, and chose to retreat temporarily.
Jiang Baiwan inside the house was relieved to hear that there was no movement outside. She threw the basin in her hand aside, then took out the phone from her pocket and pressed the play button. Immediately, the conversation between Shui Lan’er and her played directly.
Sure enough, it’s important for people to have tricks up their sleeves and be prepared.
Jiang Baiwan cheerfully uploaded the recording to her computer, feeling that she’s really a genius in palace fighting. In that kind of Qing Dynasty palace drama, she must definitely be the person who can have the last laugh.
While Jiang Baiwan was uploading the recording, she suddenly received a call. She didn’t look at the screen and just pressed the answer button. “Hello? Who’s this?”
“Jiang Baiwan.” The man’s voice on the other end of the phone was low and pleasant. “It’s me.”
Jiang Baiwan immediately dropped the matter at hand. She subconsciously sat upright and showed the attitude she used to have when facing the class teacher when she was in school. “Hello, President Ji! What can you do for you, President Ji?”
President Ji: “……”
“You don’t have to be so nervous.” Ji Chen’s voice had a hint of helplessness. “I just want to ask when your shop will open.”
When it came to her Malatang shop, Jiang Baiwan became happy. “In two days! I just need to recruit two more helpers and I can start!”
Ji Chen hummed. “When you open the shop, remember to call me.”
“A big shot like you will come and give support?” Jiang Baiwan smiled like a two-hundred-pound child. “Don’t worry, I found a very good cook this time and his skills are much better than mine! Our Malatang is definitely delicious! “
Ji Chen smiled and exchanged a few more words with Jiang Baiwan before hanging up the call.
Sitting opposite Ji Chen, Wei Dao saw him hang up. The master couldn’t help but rolled his eyes. “You’re smiling so much. I’ve never seen you so happy before.”
Ji Chen reached out and touched his cheek, showing no sign of shyness at all. “Xiao Wan was once my fiancée after all.”
Wei Dao: “……” I’m afraid that this past will disappear soon.
