Qiao Yanjue picked up the clothes on the ground, a little puzzled. The uniform didn’t look like that of a woman’s.
Xia Xibei replied, “This was my basketball uniform for today’s game.”
“Isn’t this… For men?”
Xia Xibei nodded, “Yeah, Tang Luo gave it to me. It was so last-minute today, so I didn’t have a uniform.”
“Tang Luo gave it to you?” Qiao Yanjue’s face turned grim as he asked, “You wore another guy’s clothes?”
Xia Xibei shrugged, “It’s okay, he didn’t wear it.”
It wasn’t okay even if he didn’t wear it!
Qiao Yanjue gritted his teeth and held back those words.
“You could have asked Uncle Chen to bring you clothes.” The corners of his mouth tugged stiffly.
“No need, Tang Luo had one, and he was not on the court, so I wore his for the game.”
“But wouldn’t you feel out of place in guys’ clothes?” As he spoke, he felt that his tone was not quite right and hastened to add, “If the sports uniform doesn’t fit, it affects your playing ability.”
“Nah,” Xia Xibei shook her head, “It’s fine, it doesn’t affect anything.”
Qiao Yanjue’s face truly dimmed.
Who wouldn’t be depressed if the person they liked was wearing other guy’s clothes?
Of course, what really depressed him was that Xia Xibei was still young and not yet enlightened about these things, so she did not care about such matters.
If he were to talk about this matter in the open, the consequences would be unthinkable.
Therefore, he could only take a few deep breaths to suppress the frustration in his chest.
He couldn’t play hard ball, he had to play smart.
With that thought, he finally showed a trace of a smile.
Xia Xibei had no idea what was going through Qiao Yanjue’s head, her mind focused on what was to come.
Soon, the car arrived at the place they had arranged.
The two of them got out of the car and headed inside.
Xia Xibei didn’t know that Qiao Yanjue had sent some instructions to Uncle Chen with his cell phone.
Uncle Chen was startled when he saw Qiao Yanjue’s message.
When he read the contents, the corners of his mouth twitched.
He… He really wanted to do this? Their boss was too strange!
Looking at the clothes placed in the back seat, Uncle Chen took a deep breath and finally walked out as if he were facing a firing squad.
Blissfully ignorant, Xia Xibei walked inside with Qiao Yanjue and soon arrived at the private room they had reserved.
“Little Xia… Big Qiao?”
Huo Zijun was surprised to see that this guy really came!
This morning, he had received a call from Qiao Yanjue.
Qiao Yanjue asked him when he was going to talk to Xia Xibei about their collaboration.
He was unsure, and groggily blurted out that they had arranged to meet tonight.
Then the guy had hung up!
Huo Zijun was dumbfounded.
Qiao Yanjue called him to ask this? What was he doing?! He actually followed Xia Xibei here!
“What are you doing here?”
Thinking about being woken up at five in the morning, Huo Zijun didn’t have a good attitude towards Qiao Yanjue. He was very close to throwing him out, in fact.
Huo Zijun and Qiao Yanjue’s relationship was very solid. The two of them had grown up together, so they could give each other looks with impunity.
“I needed to talk to you about something.”
Facing Huo Zijun’s long face, Qiao Yanjue put on an innocent expression, “It just so happened that Xibei was coming over, so I came with her.”
In his head, Huo Zijun thought, “Who is he fooling?!”
How come he never knew that Qiao Yanjue was so thick-skinned?
“Well, let’s sit down. Xibei is hungry, so we should order food first.”
Qiao Yanjue ignored Huo Zijun’s grim face, sat down, picked up the menu, and began to order.
The more he listened, the uglier Huo Zijun’s face became. Finally, he couldn’t help it, demanding, “Do you dare to order a dish I like?!”
