With those words of Shi Guang, Wu Xing walked away in a huff. But, after he was gone, He Xinnuo came looking for Shi Guang once more. Her face was totally grim and ghastly pale as she glared at Shi Guang with an icy and sharp gaze, “You must be really happy now, right?!”
Shi Guang shrugged her shoulders with a look of ease. “There’s nothing to be happy about winning against someone like you.”
“YOU!!!” He Xinnuo was so incensed that her teeth were chattering as her eyes seemed to shoot daggers in Shi Guang’s direction. Pointing at the latter, she continued, “One fine day, you are going to lose to me! The Heavens are fair, and will not let you dominate everything singlehandedly forever!”
The smile on Shi Guang’s lips gradually disappeared, and her expression turned frosty cold. “You are right. The Heavens are fair. You get how much you put in. Every single thing I have right now was all exchanged for with my very own hard work! Therefore, don’t think of yourself as someone so pitiful, He Xinnuo! Without capabilities and hard work, no matter how many leaders you pander to, you will never get the champion’s title!!”
After she was done with those words, Shi Guang turned around to leave.
Looking at the back view of Shi Guang, He Xinnuo’s face was darker than anything else. Jealousy and hatred gnawed down on her heart like a venomous snake.
Unable to bear it in, she screamed at the top of her lungs, “SHI GUANG! DON’T YOU GET COMPLACENT NOW! NO WAY! ONE FINE DAY, I’M GOING TO WIN AGAINST YOU! I WILL LET EVERYONE KNOW THAT YOU, SHI GUANG, WILL NEVER EVER BE ABLE TO COMPARE WITH ME, HE XINNUO!”
With the endorsement and the private coach gig, Lin Fan’s financial predicaments were settled now.
Even though the one who signed the contact with Shi Guang was Ma Lesheng, the employer was a Mrs. Shen. In her heart, Shi Guang especially wanted to thank this Mrs. Shen. Therefore, she had arrived half an hour before the prearranged time of the first lesson.
When she was waiting for someone to receive her, she gave Li Fangfei a call and asked somewhat uneasily, “Say, this Mrs, Shen that I’m going to teach… Do you think she’ll be someone easy to get along with?”
Li Fangfei assured her immediately, “She has already specifically mentioned that she wanted you. Therefore, she must definitely like and admire you. You don’t have to worry about anything. Just teach properly, and it’ll be fine.”
Shi Guang chuckled out, “Yes, I’ll definitely teach her properly. Not only that, I’m going to thank this Mrs. Shen properly as well!”
“Then hurry up and head in. Don’t wait outside any longer.” In actual fact, Li Fangfei was even more worried and anxious than Shi Guang.
Shi Guang was standing beside a car window and playing with her hair while continuing the idle chat with Li Fangfei, “I’m waiting for someone to come receive me. There’s a black jeep that’s parked in front of me. Well, it looks pretty decent so… I decided to look at my pretty self through the car’s window as well! A good car naturally brings with it a beautifying function! Even looking at myself through the window makes me look even prettier…!”
“Well, don’t go looking left and right till the car owner decides to step out of it.”
“How could that be…!”
Before she was finished with her words, the car window was rolled down. She looked at the person in the driver’s seat with a single hand on the steering wheel and the other leaning on the car window. His eyes were opened slightly, looking ahead as though there was no one else present.
Shi Guang was frozen.
Instantly, it was as though she was struck by a thunderbolt.
While he was wearing the same white shirt, it wasn’t as formal as before. His shirt was only buttoned till the second button, causing him to look relaxed and casual.
Their line of sights turned slightly.
With that, both of them locked eyes for a split second. Shi Guang was the first to jerk her head away as her heart thumped furiously. Right now, her mind was buzzing as though a thousand bees were flying wildly within.
Lu Yanchen tore his eyes away as well and continued looking up ahead.
Neither of them spoke.
After a moment, the car window was rolled up once more as he started the car. Under the brilliant sun, he drove off while leaving nothing but a cloud of dust.
Subconsciously, Shi Guang’s gaze along with the car.
Actually, hadn’t it just been two years? Why did it feel as though falling in love with him was something that had happened an era ago?
Maybe, everything had in fact ended since long ago. Perhaps she was the only one who couldn’t let go still.
That was why, she was the only one feeling hurt over it…
“Hi, there! I’m sorry to have kept you waiting!” A clean, crisp voice traveled over. The attendant staff who was supposed to receive her had arrived.
