Her Little Dimples - Chapter 11: The Heart of a Handsome Man Will Never Last
The silence lasted for a few seconds.
It seemed that even the sound of a needle falling on the ground could be heard.
After a while, the whole testing room could hear the roar from the test proctor.
“——Xie Ci! Stop!”
Xie Ci’s sudden action instantly shocked most of the people present. But in the eyes of some girls, his moves looked very handsome.
Soon, more teachers rushed over and pulled the two trouble makers out of the testing room.
The test proctor closed the door and looked back at the room, ordering, “Stop watching now, everyone back to your exams.”
But after such an event, no one was in the mood of testing. In addition, there were loud scolds from the teacher outside the door that could faintly be heard.
“No, what I’m saying is, why are you fighting in the test room?!”
“And you, Xie Ci! Almost every teacher knows about your obnoxious behavior already! Shouldn’t you reflect on yourself?!”
After the sound outside disappeared, the multimedia classroom gradually turned quiet again.
Xu You’s hand holding the pen was trembling slightly. She forced herself to calm down and stared at her scratch paper without blinking. She tried to empty her head and use all her thoughts to calculate the second to last free-response question.
Ball A, electric potential difference, electric potential energy, charged particles…
Professional terms and data were deduced step-by-step in her mind.
The scratch paper was filled with calculation processes as her hand flew across the paper.
Song Yifan and Li Jieyi had already handed in their papers and left the testing room early.
The seat in front of her also remained empty, as Xie Ci never came back.
The bell signaling the end of the second exam rang.
Xu You packed up her items and got up to leave.
When she reached the door, she hesitated for a while. Then, she turned back and grabbed that person’s jacket that he left on the desk.
After dinner in the cafeteria, Xu You returned to the dormitory with her things.
In the bedroom, only Li Lingfang and Liao Yuemin were discussing questions, Chen Xiao wasn’t there.
“Oh welcome back Youyou, how did you do on the exam this afternoon?”
After the STEM test, everyone felt relieved. Li Lingfng put down her pen and asked Xu You, “Did you finished every question? I felt like I barely had enough time. I didn’t even get to go back and check my work.”
Liao Yuemin on the side also agreed, and comforted, “When the test finished, many people were also complaining that they ran out of time, don’t worry.”
Xu You took off her backpack and nodded to them, “I also barely got to finish, it’s okay.”
But in fact, she finished the whole test twenty minutes early.
The rest of the time she just sat there in a daze.
As Xu You tried to review, thoughts of what had happened in the afternoon kept appearing in her head.
She didn’t know why she was feeling so anxious, but she just couldn’t focus. At one point, she couldn’t stand it anymore and finally took out her pajamas from the closet to go take a shower.
After showering, she took a book from the table and climbed onto her bed to read.
Chen Xiao slept on the bed opposite Xu You’s. She was chatting with friends on her phone. As she caught a glimpse of Xu You, she asked surprisedly, “Wow A Chai, you’re sleeping so early today?”
Xu You knelt on the bed and patted the pillow as she replied, “Yeah, a little tired today.”
“What happened? You seemed to be worried about something.”
Chen Xiao thought that she was in a bad mood because she was afraid to do badly on the exam. She turned around, rested her chin on her palm, and moved her legs up and down as she replied, “It’s just a test, don’t worry about it too much.”
Xu You was still thinking about how to give the jacket back to Xie Ci when she heard Chen Xiao ask:
“I heard that there was a fight in your testing room today? What happened?”
Liao Yuemin, who was sitting below her, also raised her head as she said, “Oh it’s true? I think I also heard about it from someone.”
Chen Xiao’s gossip has always been the fastest. She nodded and continued enthusiastically, “I think Xie Ci beat the Fu Yishun from our class up.”
“I don’t know, probably something happened before that made them go against each other.”
Chen Xiao turned over again and yawned.
At this time, Li Lingfang, who had not spoken much, suddenly said, “Could it be because of Qiu Qingqing…?”
“What does Qiu Qingqing have to do with this?” Liao Yuemin was a little confused.
“Didn’t Fu Yishun like her for a long time…”
“Didn’t Xie CI break up with Qiu Qingqing already?”
“What if they got back together?”
“The heart of a handsome man will never last,” Li Lingfang couldn’t help but say.
As an expert on emotions, Chen Xiao started to analyze endlessly, “I think, girls like Qiu Qingqing who are so pretty and have such good grades, he might actually get the true love from boys like Xie Ci. Then just like the way it develops in a sadomasochistic way like what happens in romance novels, and in the end, a happy ending.”
“The problem is,” said Laio Yuemin, “There are so many people pursuing Qiu Qingqing, she might not necessarily like Xie Ci. In fact, there are quite a lot of handsome boys in our grade.”
Chen Xiao sneered slightly and looked toward Liao Yuemin, “Are you serious?”
No one spoke.
There was only Chen Xiao’s voice in the bedroom, “I heard from my best friend that Xie Ci and his family deal with real estate. His father even donated a building to our school…”
The chatting of the roommates continued.
Xu You leaned back on the pillow, silently turning over the pages of the book in her hand.
The topic of discussion in her ears had already gone from Xie Ci’s incident this afternoon, to who his previous girlfriends were, to how rich his family was, and all kinds of other stuff.
Her thoughts drifted a little.
The face of that always lazy person and the up-to-no-good smirk appeared in her head.
The two days of the monthly exam soon ended.
After the STEM test, Fu Yishun and Xie Ci never appeared again.
The last test in the afternoon was English.
Before the test, Xu You took out her eraser and the 2b pencil.
Li Jieyi sat beside her and tried to start a conversation again, “Sister, I’ll have to rely on you for the last exam too.”
Xu You looked at him and nodded.
Seeing Xu You nodding, he turned a little impatient. He leaned closer, “Hey, after the exam, please come to dinner with me. It’s all thanks to you this time!”
Xu You calmly turned her head around and waved her hand, “No need.”
She thought for a while, and then asked, “Do you know where Xie Ci is? Why isn’t he taking the tests?”
Li Jieyi pulled out his phone and replied indifferently, “Perhaps he just doesn’t want to take them.”
“Then he… is he okay?” Xu You asked quietly.
Li Jieyi raised his eyebrows and looked at her, “What can happen to him?”
Xu You sat upright and then shook her head.
Li Jieyi asked the same question again.
And then answered it himself, “Nothing ever happens to A Ci.”
This time, the English test was surprisingly easy.
It took Xu You less than an hour to finish the whole test. When she turned the test in and left the testing room, there were very few people on campus.
She walked around for a while and then returned to the classroom.
There were only a few people in the room.
Only four including her.
Xu You sat down in her seat and started to organize out some of the hard questions she encountered in the past few days.
After organizing, she felt thirsty and picked up the water bottle on the desk.
But for some reason, she tried very hard, yet still couldn’t open the lid of the bottle.
Xu You bit her lip and placed it in front of her chest to try again.
Suddenly, she felt someone standing beside her.
Before she could even turn her head, the water bottle in her hand was already taken away from her.
Xu You turned her head and saw Xie Ci leaning on the desk behind her.
He smiled lazily and turned open the lid.
She was completely stunned and quietly whispered thank you.
Xie Ci smiled and placed the water aside. Then he bent over with his head tilted, studying her. “I heard from Li Jieyi, that you were worrying about me?”
