Two days pass peacefully.
This night close to to lights out, Tai Shi Shi comes over to find Ye Qing Xin.
Because it’s too late. There’s no many people inside the lobby.
“What is it?” She asks Tai Shi Shi. Ye Qing Xin doesn’t feel good about this, but she also doesn’t feel bad.
“Xin Xin, Chen Shu An acts so coldly to my older sister these two days. He even becomes hostile with her in public. He says that they need to be totally isolated from each other. Xin Xin, you know how much my sister likes him. Since the day she enrolled to B university, she likes him. Now she is in pain as to not want to live.”
“I know those things are irrational for you but I cannot think of other ways. Chen Shu An likes you, he will listen to you. Can you just talk with him and let him not treat my sister like that?”
“I know how sister mistreated you, you should be very angry with her. But please for my Papa, you help her.”
Ye Qing Xin just looks at Tai Shi Shi.
She is silent for a while then asks: “Do you think that I said something to Chen Shu An and let him to act that way to Tai Shi Yun?”
If not, why did she come out to plead her?
Tai Shi Shi feels awkward and tries to explain: “I am not….”
“It’s also okay.” Ye Qing Xin is calm and doesn’t really care: “Last night I said something to him, but I just said the truth. I told him that Tai Shi Yun called me and asked me to stay far away from him and I asked him to not find me again.”
She laughs and says: “Isn’t it what Tai Shi Yun wants?”
Tai Shi Shi is startled and shows her disappointment: “Xin Xin, I believe you will not do it.” That words could easily let Chen Shu An misunderstands.
Chen Shu An likes Ye Qing Xin, of course he will be angry with Tai Shi Yun.
Ye Qing Xin laughs: “Why I will not do it?”
“You are not that kind of person…”
“What kind of person you mean?” Ye Qing Xin’s gaze turns cold. “I just said the truth, am I that kind of person?”
“Xin Xin, my sister has a bad temper. Sometimes she says something harshly, but she never does something wrong to you. You shouldn’t be like this……”
Ye Qing Xin just looks at her.
In a short while, she laughs and says: “You already mentioned it. It’s unfair to let me talk to Chen Shu An, since it’s not fair then you don’t need to ask for my help. If there’s nothing else, just go back. The light will turn off soon.”
Tai Shi Shi calls after her but Ye Qing Xin doesn’t turn back.
After two days, during the class Ye Qing Xin listens to other students’ chat. They discuss about Tai Shi Yun, the campus beauty, keeps on pestering Chen Shu An. Chen Shu An loathes her but she is shameless enough to bare it.
She never joins the discussion. Even at the time Dou Weir talks about it, she just listens.
In the weekend.
Ye Qing Xin has a part-time job at an electronic store.
The sun shines so brightly and the wind blows heavily. It’s so cold.
Ye Qing Xin is a good worker.
During the lunch, the supervisor, a twenty five years old man, Wu Hua Rong, comes over to treat Ye Qing Xin to eat at the small restaurant.
Ye Qing Xin sold out a lot of things, she gets an impressive reward.
At the restaurant, she orders stir-fry chinese chive tripe, a bowl of rice and a bottle of water.
Wu Hua Rong doesn’t approve it: “You’ve worked hard for the whole morning, boss, give us fish with chinese cabbage, sweet and sour pork ribs, hotpot cabbage, stir-fry mushroom, and pork ribs soup!”
Wu Hua Rong is not a rich one, he is a worker. He doesn’t have a high salarly but for a woman, he thinks he should spend.
Ye Qing Xin doesn’t say anything.
The dishes come, but Ye Qing Xin just eats what she ordered.
Wu Hua Rong notices her intention and urges her to eat meat. She is be still and he feels he is failing.
Beautiful woman is indeed hard to pursue.
When they wants to settle the bill, Wu Hua Rong also wants to pay for her. Ye Qing Xin just places her money on the table and leaves.
Her refusal is clear.
The time she comes out from the restaurant, she is about to cross but suddenly she looks at an old woman falls down on the road side. She is carrying a plastic bag. There’re many people walking around but no one helps her up.
Ye Qing Xin comes over.
It’s not because she is too oversensitive. But looking at that old grandma, she remembers her own grandma. If there’s someone that helps her grandma, her grandma will not die.
“Are you okay?” Ye Qing Xin helps the grandma and asks.
The old grandma wears a good clothes, her hair is styled nicely. She also wears a jadeite necklace. She seems to be a rich woman.
The old grandma stands up unsteadily. She should be hurt. She leans on Ye Qing Xin’s body and says: “Thank you….” The time she raises her head. Her words stopped.
“Tong Tong?” She is surprised, her eyes turns red.
Ye Qing Xin responds and thinks that maybe this old grandma remembers wrongly.
“Grandma, you are wrong, I am not Tong Tong.”
Hearing this Old Grandma is startled. She chokes: “Yes, you are not Tong Tong, how can you be Tong Tong……”
A forty five years old auntie runs over and looks worried: “Old Madame! You scared me Old Madame! How can you run alone here, what do you want to buy, you can just ask me. If you are in accident, my life even cannot compensate it!”
Old Grandma smiles: “I just bought a bit of chinese chestnut, what accident I can encounter?”
Old Auntie picks the plastic and says: “You can just order me to buy, why should you run over here alone?”
Old Grandma laughs and doesn’t say anything else. She looks at Ye Qing Xin: “Thank you little lady. I’m okay. You can do your own thing now.”
Old Auntie just recognizes her and thanks her: “Thank you so much, thank you.”
Ye Qing Xin smiles: “No worries. Goodbye.”
Old Grandma is teary when she looks at Ye Qing Xin’s back figure. She asks the old auntie: “Yu Ting, did you see that girl, she is like Tong Tong right?”
Song Yu Ting comforts her: “Old Madame don’t be sad. It’s been seventeen years, how can you still think about it.”
“Old Madame, are your foot okay? Let’s go to the hospital first.”
Old Grandma said: “It’s okay. It’s not hurt now. Don’t let all of them wait too long for me.”
“Ai, give me my chestnut. Tong Tong always loves this. Tonight I will peel it for her.”
Song Yu Ting sighs.
Old Madame only has one daughter. Seventeen years ago, she and her family drowned. All of them are dead.”
