Noting that Shi Yao had abruptly stopped talking, Lin Jiage shot her a perplexed glance and saw that her attention had been captured by something beyond the car windows. Thus, he traced her line of sight.
She was looking at two girls.
One of them was holding onto a box of fried chicken while the other was holding onto a cup of ice cream.
Did she forget what she about to say after seeing other people holding food? She can’t even look away from it?
Did she have to be so gluttonous? How embarrassing…
Lin Jiage slapped his forehead helplessly, and he made up his mind to buy her some fried chicken and ice cream later so that she wouldn’t have to look at other people with envy…
A second after this thought formulated in his mind, Lin Jiage suddenly saw the girl holding the fried chicken placing a drumstick into the mouth of the girl holding the ice cream. Shortly after, the girl holding the ice cream scooped a spoonful of ice cream and fed it into the mouth of the girl holding the fried chicken. As the two girls fed one another, satisfied smiles surfaced on their lips.
In that instant, Lin Jiage seemed to have noticed something, and he quickly turned to look at Shi Yao.
As the young lady stared at the joyous pair of friends, she seemed to have raked up some past memory in her mind, and her eyes looked a little distant.
Even though her face didn’t express a lot of emotion, her slightly pursed lips still revealed hints of her dejection.
Did I misunderstand? She got distracted not because of the food in their hands but because their actions had reminded her of… Liang Mumu?
So, even though she looks fine on the surface, she’s unhappy on the inside?
With this thought in mind, Lin Jiage slowed down his car before gradually coming to a stop by the roadside.
Shi Yao had been staring fixedly at the two girls beyond the car window, but after noticing that the car had stopped, she turned her head towards Lin Jiage with a puzzled look.
Meeting her gaze, Lin Jiage pointed to the nearby KFC and said, “I need to go to the bathroom.”
Shi Yao nodded slightly. After Lin Jiage got off the car, her gaze slowly drifted back to the two girls.
At this point, they had already walked far away, so she could only see their silhouettes. But through their slight movements, she could still feel the intimacy and joy between the two of them… She couldn’t help but remember how simple and happy her days with Liang Mumu had been back then…
Barely after taking a few steps into the KFC, Lin Jiage turned to look at Shi Yao in the car.
The young lady had turned her sights back to the two girls, and perhaps it was because he wasn’t around, but the dejection and regret on her face were much more visible than before…
He couldn’t help but feel a slight ache in his heart.
A second later, he turned around and walked further into the KFC. He took out his phone, switched it on, and first logged onto the game. Seeing that Lu Benlai and Xia Shangzhou were both online, he proceeded to head to Lu Benlai’s WeChat and typed: [Half an hour later, let’s meet in the KTV 1 near our school.]
Lu Benlai quickly replied: [Boss, I have a cold and a mild fever. Can we meet up another day?]
Heh… A cold and a fever, and you’re still playing games?
Ignoring Lu Benlai’s question, Lin Jiage typed: [I heard that two days ago, in order to quickly get to the Mai Dong, you stepped on my bed with your dirty feet?]
Before Lu Benlai could respond, Lin Jiage had already begun crafting his next message.
But halfway through, Lu Benlai sent a ‘pitiful’ emoji over before adding: [Boss.]
Disregarding Lu Benlai’s attempts to act coy, Lin Jiage continued typing: [The 3 Mai Dong a day quota, I heard that you fed your Mai Dong to the toilet bowl instead?]
