Translator: Henyee Translations    Editor: Henyee Translations

After Li You finished speaking, she was pushed by Xu Ying. “Do you want to go over and watch?”

Li You stood still as Xu Ying pushed her. “Why do I have to go up and watch my backyard burn?”

“Aren’t you going to see how she confesses to Pei Jingzhou? To be honest, she’s quite beautiful. What if Pei Jingzhou agrees?” Xu Ying was very worried.

Li You pursed her lips. “l don’t think so.”

Xu Ying could not help but instill a sense of crisis in Li You. “Not only is she quite beautiful, but her results are also in the top ten of the cohort. I heard that she filled in the same choice as Pei Jingzhou.”

When Li You heard that, she felt a lump in her throat. “If you say so, I think the probability of Pei Jingzhou taking a fancy to her is a little high.”

“It’s not a little high, it’s a lot higher!” Xu Ying said as she pushed Li You again. “Hurry up and take a look. If you don’t go over, there’ll only be dust in the backyard.”

Li You was a little afraid, mainly because she was afraid.

As she firmly believed that Pei Jingzhou had promised her that he would wait for her that night, she thought about what Xu Ying had just reminded her. The girl who was preparing to confess to Pei Jingzhou was in the top ten of the cohort. She had good results and was beautiful. Most importantly, she was in the same cohort as Pei Jingzhou.

Damn compatible!

Xu Ying tried her best, but she could not push Li You forward. She felt like vomiting. She said angrily, “Is there sticky superglue under your feet? Go over quickly. She’s talking to Pei Jingzhou!’!

“No hurry, no hurry. Let’s wait and see.” Li You still did not dare to go forward. “What are you looking at!” Xu Ying was convinced. “Alright, be a coward.”

Li You:

It turned out that she was so obviously afraid.

However, when she saw the girl hand the mineral water to Pei Jingzhou, Li Wei’s premonition became worse and worse. When Pei Jingzhou took the mineral water from the girl, the timid Li You immediately ignored everything and rushed over angrily.

However, halfway through, Pei Jingzhou took the bottle of mineral water and tilted his body slightly. His eyes were as cold as ever. He opened his mouth and called someone’s name before throwing the mineral water at the person he called.

Seeing this, Li You paused.

Pei Jingzhou was very casual when he threw the mineral water. His expression was even a little cold. The girl who handed the mineral water to Pei Jingzhou looked even more embarrassed. Probably because her pride had been badly bruised, she looked like she was going to cry.

The two friends who were close to the girl walked forward to support the girl. One of the girls said, “Pei Jingzhou, you can choose not to drink it. Why are you giving it to someone else?”

Pei Jingzhou’s expression was calm, and his tone was as cold as ever. “l never drink such cheap water.”

As soon as he said this, not only the girl, but the other two girls looked terrible. The girl was aggrieved. She couldn’t help but say in a choked voice, “What brand of water do you often drink? You can tell me. I’ll definitely buy your usual water next time.”

Pei Jingzhou said impatiently, “There’s no need to tell you.” With that, Pei Jingzhou walked around the person in front of him and prepared to leave the stadium.

The girl stubbornly stepped forward and blocked Pei Jingzhou’s path. “My first choice is to enroll in Capital University.”

Pei Jingzhou said, “So?”

The girl said, “I know your first choice was also the Capital University.”

Pei Jingzhou did not deny it. “Yes.”

Seeing that Pei Jingzhou’s expression was not as cold as before, the girl immediately gathered her courage again. “Actually, my parents arranged for me to go overseas, but I still chose to stay at Capital University because I wanted to be closer to you. I wanted…”

Pei Jingzhou did not give the other party a chance to finish speaking. “Do you want to know why I chose Capital University?”

The girl was puzzled. “Wh-why?”

Pei Jingzhou said, “Because Capital University is the closest to No. 4 High School.’

The girl was stunned. Even this sentence was enough for the girl to understand what it meant.

Ever since last year, she had realized that a girl often appeared beside Pei Jingzhou. She had heard that the girl e s family seemed to be relatives with Pei Jingzhou’s family. She often saw that girl appear beside Pei Jingzhou. They seemed to be on good terms.

She did not think that Pei Jingzhou would like that girl. After all, they were two years apart. Perhaps in Pei Jingzhou’s eyes, that girl was like a sister.

Until she heard Pei Jingzhou say that Capital University was the closest to No. 4 High School…

The girl smiled bitterly. “You’re really childhood sweethearts.”

Pei Jingzhou was not in the mood to chat too much with unrelated people. He bypassed them and went straight out of the basketball court. Today was Friday, so he planned to go back to the dormitory to take a shower first. After school in the afternoon, he would bring Li You to eat the hotpot she had been craving for half a month.

After Pei Jingzhou left, the girl’s eyes turned red.

The friends around her comforted her one after another. “Actually, you still have a chance. Childhood sweethearts are all pleasant to hear. In this day and age, childhood sweethearts can’t withstand a fall from the sky.”

“That’s right, that’s right.” Another girl comforted her. “Pei Jingzhou still has to go to university. His university life is colorful, and he’s more mature. How can he still think of the childhood sweetheart who’s in her second year of high school? You still have a chance.’

The girl shook her head. “l don’t have a chance. Pei Jingzhou is the most rational and calm boy I’ve ever met. With his illustrious family background, he should go overseas after graduating from high school. There are top universities waiting for him, but he chose to stay in the capital. 1 didn’t quite understand why before, but now I finally understand why he chose Capital


Because he wants to be closer to the person he liked.

On the other side, Pei Jingzhou had just come out of the basketball court when he saw someone sneaking away from the corner of his eye. He called out to her in a low voice— “Li You.”

Li You, who had not slipped far, suddenly stopped.

Pei Jingzhou walked towards Li You. “When did you come?”

Li You turned around and chuckled. “l just came over. I wanted to watch you play, but I suddenly remembered that I still have four papers to do. I have to go back and do them now.”

She was about to slip away when Pei Jingzhou grabbed her wrist and easily pulled her back. “I’m about to take the college entrance examination. Shouldn’t I be more enthusiastic than you? I’m not even in a hurry. Why are you in a hurry?”

Li You said, “There’s no hurry.”

Pei Jingzhou looked at her empty hands. “Where’s the water?”

Li You was stunned. “What water?”

Pei Jingzhou chuckled. “You came to watch me play basketball and not buy me water?”

When he was young, Pei Jingzhou had red lips and white teeth. When he smiled, he could mesmerize people. Li You could not stand Pei Jingzhou’s smile. He was extremely handsome. He had just finished playing basketball. The lines of his sweaty muscles were very clear. Li You really wanted to poke them.

“l didn’t watch you play. I clearly came here to watch…” She almost said it, but fortunately even stopped herself. Pei Jingzhou asked, “To watch what?” Li You shook her head.

Pei Jingzhou asked, “Did you see that?”

Li You immediately denied it. “No, I didn’t see anything.”

Pei Jingzhou said, “Ha!”

Li You:

The two of them walked in the same direction. Xu Ying, who had been waiting for Li You, was long gone. As they walked, Pei Jingzhou said, “Let’s go eat hotpot tonight.”

Li You’s eyes lit up. “Okay!’

Pei Jingzhou looked at her sideways. “Before I say this, I was waiting for you to ask me.’

Li You pursed her lips. “Ask what’”

Pei Jingzhou sighed and smiled. He stopped in his tracks. “You can confirm with me what I promised you that night at the Qin residence.”

Li You bit her lip. “…Will you wait for me?”

Pei Jingzhou: ‘
