Gu Xiuxun’s face instantly turned red. The redness extended down her neck, making her resemble a large cooked shrimp.
(I really feel like dying!)
Gu Xiuxun wailed silently in her heart.
Right now, she felt shame, nervousness, and embarrassment. All sorts of emotions were mixed together, causing her heart to thump rapidly. She felt like she was about to die. Her body was hot, and her mouth and tongue felt dry.
“I didn’t see anything!”
Sun Mo closed his eyes and turned to leave.
“Stop right there!”
Gu Xiuxun called out. She was like a rabid dog as she shot forward with lightning speed to the stairs.
Just before Sun Mo closed the door, Gu Xiuxun squeezed into the room. She grabbed his shirt and lifted her right leg, executing a back kick to close the door behind her.
Sun Mo was forcefully pushed back by Gu Xiuxun. He didn’t have a stable footing and fell onto the ground. The back of his head hit the floor due to the fall.
“You are not allowed to cry out!”
Gu Xiuxun mounted Sun Mo’s body and clutched his neck. “If not, I will kill you!”
“T...the wind today is so noisy!”
Sun Mo laughed.
Honestly speaking, when he saw the scene earlier, he also felt quite awkward. But although Gu Xiuxun had a murderous look in her eyes, she still maintained some control because she didn’t exert any force as she was clutching his neck.
“Do you believe that I’ll beat you to death?”
Gu Xiuxun waved her fist, making a motion like she wanted to hammer Sun Mo’s head.
Sun Mo hurriedly nodded.
“You are not allowed to reveal this!”
Gu Xiuxun threatened.
“I didn’t see anything, what do you want me to say?”
Sun Mo revealed a very helpless expression. At this time, although he knew that he was lying, he still had to lie.
Gu Xiuxun really wanted to say that this matter must absolutely not be made known to her sister Xinhui. Upon thinking of this, Gu Xiuxun’s body shifted with unease.
Sun Mo called out.
“I...I only wanted to check and see if your shirt was dirty. Yeah, I’m staying here now and I can’t live here for nothing. But you don’t lack money. That’s why I wanted to see if your shirt was dirty so I can wash it for you and repay you for this favor!”
When she ended her speech, Gu Xiuxun felt like praising her wits. (This reason is very logical, even I would believe it.)
“I know, but can you get down from me first?”
Sun Mo really couldn’t take it anymore.
“No, you have to vow and guarantee that you won’t reveal this matter. Eh...”
As she spoke, Gu Xiuxun started and blushed. It was as though she got branded by a flat iron. She hurriedly rolled away from Sun Mo’s body.
(Men are truly.)
Sun Mo hurriedly sat up and tidied his clothes.
(As expected, men are indeed insatiable creatures!)
The atmosphere was somewhat awkward. Sun Mo wanted to alleviate the tension, he smiled. “Why do you seem so proficient in this? Could it be that you do this often in the past?”
After hearing this, Gu Xiuxun lunged over like a hunting leopard.
“I’m going to kill you!”
Gu Xiuxun was extremely aggressive. (It’s so shameful that I don’t want to live anymore!)
“What are you so mad about?”
This time around, Sun Mo was angry as well because his face was scratched. There would surely be bloody scars on it now.
“You insulted me!”
Gu Xiuxun shouted.
Sun Mo felt very wronged.
“I...I only sniffed...that..your shirt...but I didn’t do so intentionally. M...maybe you won’t...believe it if I say this, but your shirt made the first move.”
Gu Xiuxun stuttered, she was so embarrassed that she wanted to die.
“I believe it!”
Sun Mo hurriedly nodded.
Gu Xiuxun sobbed and tears already appeared in her eyes. After all, as a girl that aspired to be a great teacher, Gu Xiuxun’s behavior today was destined to become her black history.
It was fine if other men saw it, but it was different for Sun Mo. Sun Mo was An Xinhui’s fiance!
(How can I do this to him?)
The most important point was that Gu Xiuxun worshipped An Xinhui too much. She was really worried that Sun Mo would tell this incident to An Xinhui, and An Xinhui would start to loathe her.
Actually, there was still one more point, but Gu Xiuxun didn’t realize it.
From interacting with Sun Mo, Gu Xiuxun gradually discovered how outstanding he was. His standard was a tier higher compared to the other newbie teachers.
Unknowingly, she felt good will toward Sun Mo.
This situation was like a girl who accidentally showed her worst appearance to a guy whom she had a relatively good relationship with. Speaking of anger, Gu Xiuxun was a little angry, but she felt more shame instead. She was afraid that Sun Mo would loathe her, and she would lose him as a friend.
“Eh? But I didn’t insult you?”
Sun Mo started. He then realized what just happened and he helplessly kneaded his forehead. “I’m talking about how proficient you are in closing the door with a back kick. I’m usually very lazy and would often do this too!”
Gu Xiuxun surveyed Sun Mo with suspicion in her eyes.
“If you don’t believe it, just strangle me to death.”
Sun Mo spread his hands wide and lay on the floor.
(Ze, the floor is so cold. I have to buy a persian carpet someday!)
Gu Xiuxun stood up and sat on the bed. After that, she covered herself with the blanket, but a while later, Sun Mo began to hear sobbing sounds.
(Damn, please don’t cry. It’s the middle of the night right now. If others heard this, they might assume I did something to you!)
Sun Mo turned his head and glanced at the door.
Luckily, it was still tightly closed. There was no need to worry about someone suddenly entering.
However, this situation had to be properly handled. He mustn’t allow Gu Xiuxun to continue crying here.
Sun Mo did his best to speak in an amicable tone. “Do you know what friends are?”
There were no movements from the figure under the blanket, but the volume of sobbing lowered.
“Friends are not only people who have the same inclinations and topics to chat or to admire the merits of each other. What’s more important is to show tolerance to another’s flaws.
“In this world, there are billions of people, but in one’s life, even if one count those who spoke with them before, there are at most several thousand of them. For those that have deeper interactions with you, they are even lesser.
“So, seeing that we are able to become friends, this can be considered fate, and I treasure this friendship a lot!”
Sun Mo laughed. “Or, maybe you have never treated me as a friend before?”
“We are friends!”
Gu Xiuxun’s voice drifted from underneath the blanket.
“Our gazes met for 500 times in our past lives, in exchange for a brief encounter this life.”
Sun Mo’s voice turned gentle. “Gu Xiuxun, thank you for allowing me to know you, letting me get acquainted with the beauty of this world!”
Priceless Advice was activated.
Inside the blanket, Gu Xiuxun who was about to calm down suddenly blushed when she heard this.
Also, the halo was activated and this caused Gu Xiuxun to be even more nervous as her heart thumped rapidly.
(Y...you, what are you doing!)
(If I don’t know you, I might even assume you are confessing to me!)
(Speaking of which, am I really that good?)
(But that sentence ‘Our gazes met for 500 times in our past lives, in exchange for a brief encounter this life.’ is truly so well-spoken!)
Gu Xiuxun mused. She was wholly impressed by Sun Mo’s talent. He could actually say such beautiful words so casually.
Without realizing it, Gu Xiuxun’s lips curled into a smile as a sense of sweetness, like she just ate honey, appeared in her heart.
(From today onward, you are my best friend.)
Gu Xiuxun decided.
The eruption of Priceless Advice meant that Sun Mo was sincere when he said those words.
Favorable impression points from Gu Xiuxun +5,000. Reverence (12,500/100,000).
Upon hearing the system notification, Sun Mo jumped in fright. The number of favorable impression points contributed by the masochist was actually so much? (Most probably if I want to sleep with her right now, she wouldn’t struggle, right?)
However, given Sun Mo’s standard, he wasn’t able to find any more words to persuade her and Gu Xiuxun also no longer spoke. This caused the room’s atmosphere to quieten down.
Lu Zhiruo and Dong He plastered their ears to the door, wanting to hear the commotion within.
After all, so much noise was created earlier. It was impossible that the papaya girl and maid didn’t hear it.
“There’s no more commotion!”
The papaya girl blinked.
“Could Teacher Gu already be killed?”
Dong He glanced at Lu Zhiruo.
“No, she won’t. Teacher is very kind. He wouldn’t kill Teacher Gu.”
Lu Zhiruo explained in a small voice.
Dong He was speechless. (How high is your EQ? I casually spoke and you actually believed it?)
Dong He naturally knew Sun Mo wouldn’t kill Gu Xiuxun. She only wanted Lu Zhiruo to open the door. If not, if some indescribable sounds rang out from within, things would really be awkward.
The papaya girl was Sun Mo’s personal student and was very doted upon. So even if she opened the door and spoiled the atmosphere between Sun Mo and Gu Xiuxun, nothing would happen to her. However, she was a maid. If she did something wrong, she would surely be chased away by her master!
“Alright, there’s nothing happening now. We can leave now!”
Lu Zhiruo prepared to go back to sleep.
“Ah? You are not going to listen any more?”
Dong He felt a little reluctant. Because once the papaya girl left, there would be no one to share the blame, and she wouldn’t dare to stay behind. However, she still wanted to eavesdrop.
“What’s there to listen to? I won’t be able to understand the academic problems the two teachers are discussing anyway!”
As she spoke until here, the papaya girl had a bitter look on her face. (Why am I so stupid?)
“Ah? Academic problems?”
Dong He was stunned. (What’s your thought process? Have you seen a girl and a guy being alone in a bedroom and discussing academic problems?)
Dong He’s gaze involuntarily turned to Lu Zhiruo’s chest. (Did all the nutrients in your body get channeled there? As expected of the ancient idiom – large-chest, no brain. It seems that there is a reason for the idiom’s existence.)
A voice rang out in the bedroom!
Dong He scuttled away like a rabbit, leaving behind Lu Zhiruo standing alone at the door.
