Song Qianqian rubbed her hands and said excitedly, “Fight! Fight!”
Everyone looked over in an instant.
Song Qianqian coughed, “Ah, I’m sorry. I actually said what’s on my mind.”
“The New Year is less than three hours away, if you miss this time, you won’t have another chance!”
Xiao Li was encouraged to speak. She strode towards Chen Nianqing and said, “President, I like you very much. I have liked you for three years!”
She knew that even if she said it, the probability of success was very low.
But still, she wanted to tell the other person her feelings.
It was an honor to like such a wonderful person in high school.
He was like a ray of light that inspires her to keep improving.
Chen Nianqing turned to look at Lu Wan with a blank expression on his face.
His meaning was very clear, ‘You have made the whole atmosphere distorted’.
Lu Wan: “……”
Well, on this kind of special occasion, people were more easily excitable and chaotic. If she had known, she wouldn’t have come today.
“Why don’t we go in and pray?”
Chen Nianqing walked up and held Lu Wan’s wrist. “I need a word. Come with me.”
Although Lu Wan was surprised, she did not resist, because she in fact trusted this person.
Chen Nianqing took Lu Luwan for a few steps, stopped, and looked at the two people following them.
He fixed his eyes on Su Rao and said in a somewhat cold voice, “Haven’t you done enough? Don’t follow us.”
Su Rao was stunned. She pursed her lips and did not speak.
Chen Nianqing was a year older than her. He was someone she had admired since she was a child and had not been able to surpass.
Although the age difference was not much, an elder brother was an elder brother.
Chen Nianqing looked at Lu Wan again and said, “Tell him not to follow either.”
This ‘him’ refers to Xu Yao.
Xu Yao’s eyes widened. He wanted to say ‘it’s none of your business, go die’, but Lu Wan spoke first.
“Go and play by yourself. Don’t just think about fooling around when you have nothing to do. You even prepared a note? If you have so much time, isn’t it better to use it to memorize at least two words?”
Xu Yao was very dissatisfied. “Why are you just talking about me and not that kid?”
Lu Wan: “What will I say to him? I do not require you to come first, but can you get in the bottom 30 in the next exam?”
Xu Yao: “……”
Damn it, there was no way for him to refute.
He mulled over it carefully and found that it was quite difficult to get to the bottom thirty, so he muttered, “You’re making it too difficult for me. Can’t it be the bottom ten?”
Lu Wan: “Get lost. Don’t follow me!”
This landlord’s son, does this still need to be bargained?
Song Qianqian suddenly felt that this muscular boy was silly but quite cute.
Chen Nianqing took Lu Wan into the temple and stopped when they walked to a sidehall with few tourists.
He looked at Lu Wan with burning eyes, his pupils as dark as ink.
Lu Wan felt guilty somehow.
“Hey, don’t look at me like that. I didn’t expect what happened today. I’m sorry if it makes you feel uncomfortable.”
Although Chen Nianqing was liked by many girls, he was out of everyone’s reach.
Everyone wanted to be near him, but there were not many who dared to confess and chase after him in their entire school.
He wasn’t an easy person to get at first glance; the kind of male celestial who was out of touch.
Chen Nianqing: “Do you know where you’re wrong?”
Chen Nianqing took a step closer. “Then why are you apologizing so quickly?”
Lu Wan: “……”
Chen Nianqing looked at the silent person and then switched to another subject. “I agree.”
The sentence could mean a lot of things, and this time, Lu Wan completely doesn’t understand.
Chen Nianqing: “I agree to your proposal. Let’s pretend to be together.”
“You’re not confused, are you?” Lu Wan’s first reaction was that the other party must be joking.
At that time, she was grasping at straws and was only thinking of a quick fix solution.
However, Chen Nianqing refused. She thought about it afterwards and realized that this method was really unadvisable.
Why was it suddenly brought up? It’s been so long……
Chen Nianqing: “I’ve given it a lot of thought. This will actually help the both of us.”
He really couldn’t stand it anymore. He was afraid that Lu Wan would be snatched away if he didn’t have a title.
Lu Wan looked at Chen Nianqing suspiciously. Could it be that Chen Nianqing wanted to use her as a shield because he had also been confessed to today?
That’s right, the girl who confessed to Chen Nianqing just now was a core member of the Music Club. It would be awkward if the two met frequently.
Not to mention that the girl was pretty……
Chen Nianqing: “Su Rao and Xu Yao will give up, and it will save you a lot of trouble.”
Lu Wan: “……”
There’s some truth in that.
Chen Nianqing: “We will only discuss questions together and be friends in private. I will not interfere with you.”
Lu Wan: “……”
Was there such a good thing?!
Chen Nianqing: “We’ll be helping each other.”
Holy sh*t, her heart was pounding!
Lu Wan raised her head and asked hesitantly, “Why did you suddenly…… Are you serious? You won’t regret it?”
Chen Nianqing: “Certainly not. So you dare not? Or can’t you?”
Lu Wan: “Who says I can’t! Of course I dare!”
As a promising youth, she doesn’t like hearing people saying she couldn’t do anything!
The corners of Chen Nianqing’s lips turned upward and he nodded. “That’s good.”
Lu Wan: “You won’t regret it?”
She always felt that she was taking advantage of the other party.
Chen Nianqing: “Why did you become so hesitant today? It’s unlike you. I won’t force you. If you can’t, it’s no problem.”
Lu Wan’s competitiveness was aroused, “Of course I can!”
The two looked at each other.
Chen Nianqing: “It’s still that old phrase, ‘since we decided to pretend, at least don’t let others see any clue’.”
“You’re telling me? Of course I know.”
Lu Wan thought about it. Her own momentum couldn’t lose. She took the initiative to say, “Then let’s pretend until after the college entrance exam, whoever regrets halfway is a dog!”
Chen Nianqing: “Okay.”
Lu Wan: “It’s a deal.”
“It’s a deal.”
After the matter was finalized, Lu Wan felt it was quite good as this saves her a lot of trouble.
Just…… Was this a bit hard for the other party?
She was so focused on her thoughts when someone suddenly held her hand from the side.
As if being scalded, Lu Wan threw off the other party’s hand and jumped a meter away.
She asked incredulously, “What are you doing?”
Chen Nianqing seemed completely unfazed. “Don’t you know? Holding hands is the most common way of intimacy for lovers. Even if it’s acting, there must at least be some kind of resemblance to a real one. Otherwise people will not believe it.”
Lu Wan: “……”
Was it like that?
Chen Nianqing: “You can’t?”
Lu Wan: “Who says I can’t?! Isn’t it just holding hands? Sure.”
Once again, as a promising youth, she doesn’t like hearing people saying she couldn’t do anything.
It’s just holding hands, not like she’d lose a piece of flesh.
And she was the one who came up with the idea in the first place! Making a fuss would make the other party laugh at her instead!
Lu Wan decided to take the initiative and said, “Hold out your hand.”
Chen Nianqing smiled and stretched out his right hand.
Lu Wan lowered her eyes and saw that the boy’s hands were quite good-looking, with great and white skin, and long fingers.
In order to prove that she’s good with it, she took the other party’s hands in hers.
Chen Nianqing clasped it and placed his fingers in between Lu Wan’s.
It became interlocking fingers.
Lu Wan’s eyes widened, but she must not be timid at this time, so she tried to remain calm and did not speak.
It was the first time she held hands with someone like this.
Surrounded by sandalwood in the temple, Lu Wan forced herself not to focus on their clasped hands.
It’s a small matter! Ultimately, it was her taking advantage of Chen Nianqing!
The other person was so generous, she couldn’t lose!
She would never let go first!
Xu Yao was a little anxious while waiting. He impatiently said, “I’m going to look for them. I always feel that something isn’t right.”
Lu Wan and Chen Nianqing had been gone for more than ten minutes. Even if they have something to talk about, it should already been finished by now.
Su Rao: “Heh, other people have a common topic.”
Su Rao had always known that Chen Nianqing’s attitude towards Lu Wan was different.
She felt it was nothing. Those two was participating in the same variety show, so getting close was very normal.
There were many beautiful girls around Chen Nianqing, but she had never seen any signs of him falling in love before.
At least, her cousin was more trustworthy than Xu Yao.
Xu Yao sneered. “What do you know? I can assure you that that guy must have ulterior motive.”
This was a man’s intuition.
Su Rao smiled in utter scorn, “Unreasonable.”
Seeing that the two were about to fight, Song Qianqian quickly said, “Why don’t we go into the temple and have a look? There are many worship halls inside and we can pay our respect.”
The others agreed, after all, nothing would happen with them just waiting here.
There were too many people in the front hall and they didn’t want to add to the chaos.
Seeing Lu Wan and Chen Nianqing holding hands, the group of people were a little unresponsive.
Why…… were they holding hands?
The two were being so intimate.
Were they dating?
When did this start, and why didn’t any news leak out?
Everyone was shocked by their own thoughts, not to mention that once they accepted this assumption…… President Lu and Chen Nianqing actually looked like a good match?
Su Rao had a look of disbelief.
Xu Yao muttered a curse, and immediately wanted to rush up and beat someone up, but was grabbed by Song Qianqian.
Chen Nianqing said lightly, “They’re coming. Shall we go hand in hand or not?”
Lu Wan: “Leave them alone…… Let’s go and pay our respects first since we’re already here.”
Under the watchful eyes of everyone, the two people entered the nearby Buddha hall hand in hand.
Lu Wan was still thinking about something, and let Chen Nianqing pull her to worship.
Chen Nianqing’s grandmother was a Buddhist worshiper, so he had been influenced and knew a little about it.
“There’s a Buddha statue over there, don’t you want to worship?” Lu Wan asked.
Chen Nianqing: “If you want, we can also do it.”
But actually, it’s a bit early for them to worship now.
Lu Wan: “They’re already here!”
Anyway, it wouldn’t cost her any money!
The two of them were wearing regular clothes today, so they didn’t look awkward mixing in with pilgrims.
“Aiya, those two are still very young. Why are they so anxious to get married?”
“I’m afraid you don’t know. Infertility is very frequent nowadays, sigh.”
“This young couple is doing just fine. The Songzi Guanyinchild-giving Guanyin. Guanyin Bodhisattva is a Buddhist deity called Bodhisattva Avalokitesvara, the Bodhisattva of Compassion or Goddess of Great Mercy will surely bless them with a beautiful baby.”
It didn’t sound right to Lu Wan. They seemed to be talking about her……
She looked up to see the Bodhisattva in front of her with a kind smile, holding a baby in her arms……
When she turned her head, she saw that Chen Nianqing was holding back a smile with a somewhat playful expression.
Obviously, he already knew.
Lu Wan: “……”
The students who just walked to the entrance of the Buddhist hall were completely shocked.
This…… Wasn’t it too fast?! Have the two big shots gotten to the point of worshiping Songzi Guanyin??
Xu Yao tugged at his hair and was just about to wail emotionally. Song Qianqian acted quickly and covered the other person’s mouth.
This was a temple! Loud noises were prohibited.
Xu Yao: “Wuu wuu—mmm-mmm……”
A passing monk noticed their side and asked, “Is this little brother all right?”
Song Qianqian opened her mouth and said, “It’s an old problem, intermittent seizure. It will be fine in a while.”
“Buddha is merciful.” The monk was stunned, bowed with compassion, and turned to leave.
