Her Little Dimples - Chapter 13: What Do You Want to Do?
“You’re so easily bullied.”
After school was over on Wednesday afternoon, Fu Xueli said to Xu You as they cleaned the classroom.
Everyone else has already left and the dim sunlight enveloped the entire campus.
“Xu You,” said Fu Xuelie as she covered her mouth and nose as she wiped the blackboard.
Xu You was putting the chairs on the desks one by one and sweeping the floor as she replied, “Yes?”
“Let me tell you, toward Xie Ci and those people, you need to be more aggressive.”
Fu Xueli threw the blackboard eraser on the podium and clapped her hands, “If they do it again in the future, just go up and slap them, and teach them a lesson.”
Xu You continued to sweep the floor, carefully getting out all kinds of trash from the corner while listening to Fu Xueli.
“But as far as I know, there should be quite a few girls in the grade,”
She opened a bottle of yogurt and continued, “I think most of them have a crush on Xie Ci too. There are always people asking for his number.”
“Okay…” Xu You saw someone outside the window.
Fu Xueli was still continuing non-stop, “So his girlfriend changes a lot and quickly too. But he probably just hangs around with every one of them for fun.”
Xu You finished sweeping the floor and shoved the trash in the trash can. She wiped the sweat on her forehead with the back of her hand and asked, “Xueli, why are you telling me these?”
After hesitating for a long time, Fu Xueli walked over, placed her hands on her knees, and looked at Xu You sideways, “I think Xie Ci might like you.”
“No I’m serious, I’ve been with him for so long, and this is the first time I saw him teasing girls so patiently. And now the more I think about it, the more I feel like something is wrong. Then Song Yifan told me that someone was bothering you in the testing room, and Xie CI immediately got pissed off.”
Xu You quickly interrupted her as she blushed, “Please stop, it’s a misunderstanding, really.”
She took two steps back, lifted the trash can, and fled.
“I’ll go downstairs to take out the trash.”
Fu Xueli sat on a desk while shaking her two thin white legs and drinking yogurt. She played on her phone as she waited for Xu You to come back.
After a few minutes, she was a little impatient and jumped off the desk to go take a look.
But before she even stepped out of the classroom, Fu Xueli was leaning on the door frame and suddenly stopped.
Xu Xingchun was leaning against the wall with his backpack in his hand. He was faintly looking at her.
“You… why are you here?”
He didn’t reply.
Fu Xueli bit her lip and muttered a few words in a low voice.
Xu Xingchun watched her small movements silently, and then spoke after a long time, “You want to break up with me?”
“Ye…yeah.” Every time Fu Xueli looked at him like this, she would for some reason lose her confidence. After stammering for a while, she boldly said, “Is there a problem?!”
She has begun to tire of these kinds of controlled days, from the beginning of middle school until now.
Xu Xingchun was her desk mate during her first year of middle school. At first, she would always make him go get water for him and also ask him to keep watch while she was playing games in class. Then after knowing that he had good grades, she would straight up copy answers from him. Normally, she would also give her homework for him to do.
Then during the second year of middle school, they were still in the same class and she continued to bully him as always. And Xu Xingchun just endured it silently.
But for some reason, he confessed inexplicably in the third year of middle school, and then after that, the two just started being together.
After their relationship started, Fu Xueli realized that Xu Xingchun was definitely not easy to bully at all. In the eyes of others, he was the class representative with top grades. He also had a sullen character and a particularly possessive desire.
He controlled her as if she was his daughter.
After high school, they became very busy. But what didn’t change was that Xu Xingchun still liked to control her life, even to the extent of who she should be friends with.
A beautiful girl like Fu Xueli, who was stubborn and careless, loved freedom. Although she also liked handsome guys, she really wanted to end up having some more friends other than him.
While she was still thinking about the past, Xu Xingchun had already walked in front of her.
“Fu Xueli.” He always liked to call her by her full name.
Making her feel somewhat uncomfortable.
There were heavy shadows under his eyes, and it seemed that he hasn’t slept well for many days.
Xu Xingchun paused for a while, and then lowered his voice, “We won’t break up, I won’t allow it.”
The usually quiet eyes are filled with suppressed and complex feelings.
His words seemed to be too aggressive and angered the rebellious girl’s, unwilling heart.
“What? Why are you so selfish?” Fu Xueli argued back.
After shouting, she found that she was too close to him and wanted to step back, but he had already caught her hand.
“Yes, I am selfish.”
Xu Xingchun was impatient and didn’t want to continue talking with her. He leaned his head down, closed his eyes, and pressed against the red lips.
Yes, he was selfish.
He couldn’t stand her being happy with others. All the effort she spent made him jealous. Ever since he was young, he couldn’t stand her smiling at others.
Seeing her heartless behavior.
Xu Xingchun really wanted to pull his heart out to show her.
In the evening, the ground started to release the heat after being burned by the sun for the whole day.
First High School’s campus was sprinkled with the golden light from the sunlight. In the distance, some boys who just finished playing basketball walked out of the school gate.
Xu You sat on the stairs with her chin resting on her knees. Her hair was hanging down beside her legs, and she was staring straight ahead.
The scene that she accidentally saw kept reappearing in her head…
All it took was one glance for her to flee as if she accidentally saw the biggest secret of the world.
The class rep…
Was kissing Xueli…
The hot wind in the evening smelled of gardenia, and the leaves rustled as they were blown on.
Xu You was still sitting on the steps in a daze when her view was suddenly blocked by a black figure.
Above her head, a familiar voice came:
“Are you sitting here and enjoying the view?”
Xie Ci, wearing a sleeveless white jersey and holding a basketball in his right arm, was looking at her.
He had just finished playing basketball and his short black hair was soaked. His pitch-black pupils were bright and even, a little scary.
Xu You ignored him. She looked down and stared at the ground.
Xie Ci smiled.
He threw the basketball to the people waiting in the distance and tilted his head, signaling them to go first.
His friends saw Xie Ci’s motions and made a gesture signaling they understood.
The basketball hit the ground and bounced towards them.
The sound of footsteps in the distance and the laughter of the crowd faded away.
Xie Ci cracked his neck and squatted down.
Xu You sat on the steps, so she was taller than him.
“Tsk, are you still angry with me? Didn’t I just tell you to call me brother?”
After speaking, he couldn’t help but let out a giggle.
Xu You raised her eyes and thought that she glared at him with fierce eyes.
After the glare, she rolled her eyes and looked to the side.
Xie Ci smiled as she reached out a finger and lifted her chin, “Are you a little mute?”
A piece of white and thin skin ran across his fingertips, creating a tingling feeling.
Xu You subconsciously tried to avoid his hand and pushed him.
She didn’t even use that much force, but for some reason, he fell backward and pulled her along too.
Everything suddenly changed.
Both of them fell to the ground, and Xu You was taken into his arms. She was lying on him.
Just after playing sports, Xie Ci had a sweaty smell on him, and it seemed as if the heat was coming off his body. The tip of Xu You’s nose hit his shoulder.
He laid on the ground and looked at her.
Xu You struggled to get up but was fixed in place by Xie Ci’s hands.
“What do you want to do! You pervert!” Xu You bit her lip and her eyes shimmered from shyness.
The touch in his arms felt warm and soft, and also along with a fragrance of jasmine.
He blew the hair beside Xu You’s cheeks and whispered after leaning to her ears, “You~”
