Who's Bothering Who?
Could it possibly be because she’d scolded him that time, resulting in his change of attitude? Had he given up on her after that?
But that shouldn’t have been this effective on the guy! The main question she should be asking here, however, was why Lin Yi was even taking a bus in the first place! Didn’t he have a private driver to drive him around?
“Did… Did you get on the same bus as me on purpose?” Tang Yin asked, voicing her suspicions.
“On purpose?” Lin Yi scratched at his nose a bit, smiling bitterly. “I got on the bus first, you know. How am I supposed to know you’d get on at that stop? I’ve no future-telling abilities, alright?’
Lin Yi touched the jade at his chest subconsciously- well, he did have that ability, albeit a more unpredictable and vague one. There was no helping it, however, since he hadn’t a very good idea about what the hell the signals meant.
Tang Yin blinked at the answer, realizing that she did get on the bus after him… After all, he had no guarantee that Tang Yin would be getting on the same bus, even if he did know about the route 87 bus she took. It’d be too coincidental, and she’d was even a little late because of that gangster chasing after her……
Or, could it be that Lin Yi was the one who’d hired the gangster, so as to make sure she got on the same bus? Did he orchestrate a scenario where he’d have the chance to save the damsel in distress? Tang Yin couldn’t help but find the idea ridiculous- Lin Yi wasn’t so bored that he’d do something insane like that… The guy was prideful, too, and it did seem a little out of character for him to set that plan into motion. The gangster had been bothering her for quite a while, too- Lin Yi hadn’t even transferred to her school back then! The probability was a near zero.
“Oh…..” Tang Yin nodded, accepting the coincidence.
“Is there anything else?” Lin Yi asked, seeing that the girl was still standing in front of him. What did she want?
Tang Yin blinked as she looked at Lin Yi, her eyes full of disbelief. “You weren’t looking for me?”
Tang Yin was still afraid of the guy, even if he did help her off the bus; she was worried that Lin Yi might continue bothering her after getting off, but never did she imagine that he’d ask her if there was anything else she needed!
“Why would I be looking for you?” Lin Yi blinked as well, followed by a bitter smile. “You should get going, you’re gonna be late……”
“Ah!” Tang Yin stomped her foot after seeing looking at her watch. She glared at Lin Yi a little angrily before rushing off to school, her face red with confusion. It was like she was the one bothering him!! The only reason she didn’t leave right away was because of her fear towards him; did the guy think she liked being in his company or something?
The small warmth towards Lin Yi that had developed earlier in the bus, as a result, dissipated into frustration.
Lin Yi smiled ever so slightly at Tang Yin’s ponytail swinging in the wind. Man, youth sure is nice.
Tang Yin was huffing by the time she reached the school entrance. She’d barely managed to step to the side last minute before bumping into someone- it was Zou Ruoming!
“God fucking damn it, you fucking blind?” Zou Ruoming cursed. He looked at the person who’d bumped into him, and realized it was Tang Yin, a somewhat terrified expression on her face. Ruoming wasted no time in showing his teeth with a nice, big smile. “Yin Yin! I’m sorry, I thought it was someone else- I’d have let you bump into me all you want if I’d known it was you! Maybe we can do that now?”
Tang Yin’s face darkened at Ruoming’s teasing. “Zou Ruoming, what do you think you’re saying?”
“Hm? What do I think, huh?” Zou Ruoming’s smile grew wider as he spoke. He’d refrained from doing anything too serious during school time, but there shouldn’t be anyone getting to school this late- it meant that he was practically alone with Tang Yin, and he couldn’t control himself anymore. “Yin Yin, you decided if you’re gonna be friends with me yet?”
“M-move it……” Tang Yin had no other choice- the guy was blocking the entrance.
“I’ll move it if you promise to be friends.” Ruoming grinned lustfully.
“You……” Tang Yin bit her lip softly at how much of a jerk Ruoming was being…… this guy was an even bigger asshole than Lin Yi was! Lin Yi would never force her like this, she’d only need to cry or make it look like he was bullying her, and the guy would leave her alone…… She could even stomp her foot on his shoe if he refused to move! Heh heh……
“Yes? What about me?” Ruoming felt like the biggest tyrant in the universe! His evil started seeping out from inside him. “Ruoming Bro here’s pretty strong you know!”
“Move it…… O-or I’ll call Lin Yi over here!” Tang Yin couldn’t take that lecherous gaze and smile Ruoming was putting on display anymore, and Lin Yi’s name came shooting out her mouth for some reason.
Ruoming’s gleeful face froze upon hearing the name- he darted his eyes around subconsciously, making sure Lin Yi wasn’t actually nearby before getting cocky again.
He’d been planning to have his brother Zou Ruoguang take care of Lin Yi the last couple of days, but there was no doubting the fear he’d still have for the man before that took place. Both the basketball incident and the slap at the stand traumatized him deeply.
“Fucking… Don’t throw that name at me, who do you think he is? Your guardian angel?” Ruoming said after failing to see Lin Yi anywhere near them. “Where’s your Lin Yi? Why don’t you call him out? You think he’s your bodyguard, do you? Ask him to come, why don’t you- I’ll fuck him in the ass!!”
“Whose ass are you fucking?” Wang Zhifeng had just finished a nice little session with his mate, and was patrolling school grounds when he heard something about fucking- what did the guy think he was doing, saying stuff like that right in front of the dean?
Ruoming jumped with a startle- he turned around to see a solemn-looking Wang Zhifeng walking his way, and his cockiness faded…… The dean was not someone he’d dare make light of.
After all, Songshan’s First School wasn’t just your typical high school- it was an establishment with a ton of background. The dean here had the power to expel students if he wished so, and Ruoming did not want to be expelled.
Tang Yin let out a sigh of relief at the sight of the dean- she had no idea Ruoming planned on messing with her.
“Mr. Wang……” Ruoming smiled politely. “I’m just cursing a little out here, I… It’s too stressful, studying for the exams… I’m just blowing some steam off……”
“Blowing some steam off? Why don’t you go back to your old man and blow your steam off there?” Zhifeng frowned. He knew that Ruoming’s dad was quite the big shot himself, but Zhifeng didn’t care- a dean of Songshan’s First School simply had too many connections. All families had children, and it mattered not how powerful the family was- they’d still have to make peace with the dean and principal of the school……
“Haha……” Ruoming chuckled awkwardly. Go back to his old man? He’d didn’t want to get beat up! His dad still wished for him to bring glory to the house by getting into a good college, especially after his brother had went and turned himself into a gangster…...
