Chapter 213: Did I just get hit on?
Translator: eunimon_ Editor: Caron_
As Shen Meng Qi was exposed by Ye Wanwan, guilt flashed over her face but it was very quickly replaced with a hurt and disappointed look, "How could that be? Wanwan, you're my best friend. Why would I snatch your boyfriend?!"
Shen Meng Qi's eyes reddened. Her body started trembling visibly as she looked at Si Ye Han helplessly, seeking his forgiveness, " Mr Si, I have only... only high esteem and respect for you... I don't have any other intentions... I..."
In the end, Shen Meng Qi was only able to take half a step before being blocked by Xu Yi's icy gaze, " Ms Shen, please have some dignity!"
Seeing that Shen Meng Qi had been blocked by someone's underling, the onlookers couldn't help but laugh.
"High esteem, respect? What do those mean when you're saying you have high esteem and respect for another man? You're obviously confessing your feelings for him, but still, you insist that you don't have any other intentions?"
"A leopard can't change its spots! She kept chasing after Jiang Yan Ran's boyfriend and now she's upped her standards by latching onto this guy! Ye Wanwan's boyfriend looks so much more successful than Song Zi Hang!"
"Ye Mu Fan already delivered a coat to her yet she still wants to shiver in the cold, act pitiful and wail accusingly--she thinks people are blind!"
"I remember that the rumour about Ye Wanwan being fed by old men outside school was also spread by her, right?"
Shen Meng Qi's face changed, "I... I didn't... it's not like that... how could I spread such a rumour..."
Damn it, Jiang Yan Ran has been so close to Ye Wanwan lately; did she say anything to her? No wonder Wanwan's attitude towards me has been so different...
Ye Wanwan stood by the side and looked coldly as Shen Meng Qi struggled to give a convincing explanation to the crowd.
She'd once been mocked and excluded by everyone thanks to Shen Meng Qi tarnishing her name. Today, she finally got back at her.
Of course, this wasn't enough...
Just as the bell rang, Shen Meng Qi took the chance to escape from the unforgiving crowd.
"Wanwan, no matter what misunderstandings you have about me, I really didn't mean it... I... I'll explain better next time..." Shen Meng Qi concealed the darkness in her eyes, bit her lips, shot a resentful glance at Si Ye Han, then left in a hurry.
Ye Wanwan wasn't bothered by Shen Meng Qi and got up from her seat to send Si Ye Han off.
Looking at the man in front of her, Ye Wanwan was silent.
"Go to class," Si Ye Han said, when he noticed she wasn't making a sound. He thought she was just afraid to speak to him so he didn't say much either.
However, just as Si Ye Han was about to leave, someone grabbed his wrist.
A little hand was held onto his sleeve lightly.
Si Ye Han paused and looked at his sleeve.
Ye Wanwan didn't know why she stopped him. After she caught on, she quickly retracted her arm and fiddled with the white fur on her collar nonchalantly.
Si Ye Han didn't rush her and stood there, watching her quietly.
Ye Wanwan didn't know what to say so she asked out-of-the-blue, "Will you ever fall for Shen Meng Qi?"
Si Ye Han looked deeply into her eyes and replied without any expression, "No, I have high standards."
"...!" Ye Wanwan was speechless. After a long time, she lifted her head and blinked, then blinked again.
Uh, did I just... get hit on?
Wasn't that just a veiled compliment?
He actually managed to say that with a serious face when he has me as his girlfriend...
