After discussing with Liu Manhong regarding the upcoming development of her business, Xia Xibei contacted Huo Zijun.
Due to the serious nature of the matter, the two of them agreed to meet up after her classes the following day because the decision couldn’t be made over the phone.
When Xia Xibei finally tucked herself into bed after completing all her tasks, it was midnight.
As she recalled what had happened earlier that day, she didn’t know what facial expression to react with.
Those awkward moments barged into her mental space every time she closed her eyes, and she ended up opening them again in horror.
Damn it! The amount of awkwardness was totally overwhelming! How could she ever face Qiao Yanjue again?
As she thought of that, she had to fight the urge to put King Chu in another time-out!
One shouldn’t be so gentle with a dumb husky, indeed!
She only managed to fall asleep after rolling around in bed for a while.
However, she was soon jolted awake in fright again the next morning.
In her sleep, she dreamt of being chased by Qiao Yanjue!
Him chasing her wasn’t the horrible part, the horrible part was- Qiao Yanjue was naked in her dream, and some unspeakable part of him was even swaying in front of her!
Xia Xibei’s forehead was covered in fat droplets of cold sweat when she woke up.
What a horribly shameful nightmare!
Xia Xibei stared into space in an attempt to get rid of the image in her head, the one that shouldn’t be there.
However, that body in her mind just kept got clearer and clearer.
She had seen Qiao Yanjue’s body before when she treated his wound, and after what happened last night, Qiao Yanjue’s figure only became more explicit in her mind.
Those well-toned, solid but unobtrusive muscles, meandering down to the sexy mermaid’s line on his waist, and further down…
Right before that unspeakable part became magnified in her mind, Xia Xibei’s phone rang out of nowhere, jolting her back to reality.
She jumped in fright and the image in her mind vanished instantly.
She clumsily turned off the alarm, listlessly collapsing onto the bed once again. She couldn’t help but give herself a slap on the face.
Damn you! Perverted girl!
It was worth mentioning, however, that Qiao Yanjue was in tip-top body shape indeed. He looked slim in his clothes and masculine when undressed, which was the kind of body shape that she liked.
It was a pity that they could never be together.
Xia Xibei finally managed to hold down her agitation after rolling from one side of the bed to the other for a few minutes.
She walked to the balcony, took out a cushion, and sat on it in a cross-legged manner.
Basking in the first rays of the morning sun, she began her spiritual training.
After a cycle of training, she opened her eyes, having regained her equanimity.
In the depths of her mind, she told herself that it didn’t really mean anything.
The more she was bothered by it, the more awkward she would feel.
Moreover, it wasn’t like she took advantage of him on purpose. It was all thanks to that stupid King Chu, so she didn’t have to take it to heart.
After mentally reasoning with herself, Xia Xibei could finally smile naturally once again.
She opened the door and stepped out after changing into a fresh set of clothing.
However, she became startled right as she walked out of the door because there was someone standing in front of the elevator.
“Miss Xia, good morning.”
“Uncle Chen?” Xia Xibei blinked in surprise, “Are you here to pick up Brother Qiao? This early?”
It was seven o’clock in the morning, the time for students to head for school, but why was Qiao Yanjue so early for work?
“No, I’m here to send you to school.”
“Send me to school?” Xia Xibei pointed at herself in shock. “Are you kidding me?”
“Of course not!” Uncle Chen replied with a smile. “My boss told me to send you to school. I’ve been waiting here for ten minutes already.”
Xia Xibei froze, “He asked you to send me to school?”
What was Qiao Yanjue up to?
“Yes. My boss said that it’s not convenient for you to go to school alone, so he asked me to come over and give you a ride.”
Uncle Chen took a look at the time, then spoke in a serious manner, “It’s almost time. We’ll get there just in time if we get going now.”
