Chapter 30: So you’ve learnt to play hard to get? (10)
In the past when Qin Zhi Ai first met Gu Yu Sheng, she was not able to come up with a single adjective to describe him. After so many years, she still cannot find an apt word that fully represents him.
However, if a decision must be made, Qin Zhi Ai can only offer one word: Tempting.
Handsome brows, high nose bridge, thin lips, mesmerising contours.
Gu Yu Sheng possesses a face that makes people want to commit crimes.
As a result, Qin Zhi Ai can feel herself getting drunk merely from staring at Gu Yu Sheng’s face.
Due the unbearable alcohol stench in the room, she had opened the windows, revealing the strong winds outside.
The sound of the leaves rustling in yard danced in the background.
As a gust of wind enters the room, her long hair and his short hair swayed.
Right at this moment, a deja vu feeling hits Qin Zhi Ai.
The first time Qin Zhi Ai met Gu Yu Sheng is in the first year of high school, her freshman year.
Earlier in middle school, Qin Zhi Ai had heard rumours of a handsome guy with celebrity-level looks in the high school division. However, because they are situated in different school zones, Qin Zhi Ai did not get the opportunity to meet him in person.
On her first day of high school, after Qin Zhi Ai reported in the field, she proceeded with her luggage to find the dormitory she was assigned to. However, on the way, she encountered a long flight of stairs. Owing to her excessively heavy luggage, she was stuck at the bottom of the stairs, lacking the strength to lift it. Although many boys dressed in school uniform passed by her, he was the only one who, in an offhanded manner, carried her bag and left it at the top of the steps.
After which, without even giving her the chance to express her thanks, he turned into the nearby male washroom with a group of boys.
Although at that time Qin Zhi Ai was completely unaware of the name of the guy who helped her, she was captivated by his looks that were superior to even drawings.
The second time she met Gu Yu Sheng is on the last day of military training.
Qin Zhi Ai was wearing the unattractive military uniform and was assuming the horse stance while heavily perspiring under the hot sun.
He was riding a bicycle, passing by her with the blinding sun behind him and disappearing after turning a corner.
The third time she met Gu Yu Sheng is the Wednesday of the second week when classes officially started. He was standing at the entrance of the canteen, distracted by a phone call.
He had just finished his drink and was twirling the packaging in his palm. Subsequently, he did a seemingly casual backhanded toss into the faraway rubbish bin behind him.
His little performance then had sparked off screams of awe from many teenage girls nearby.
It was from their whispers did Qin Zhi Ai find out that he is Gu Yu Sheng.
So his name is Gu Yu Sheng… That handsome-beyond-words senior from the high school division.
The fourth time she met Gu Yu Sheng is at the ‘Happy’ Internet Cafe opposite the school. She was coincidentally situated beside his group of friends. At that moment, he was caught up in a CS match while his friends excitedly tapped the table, slammed the keyboard and hollered. He was the only one quietly letting his fingers fly across the keyboard, killing one opponent after another.
After that, there is a fifth time, sixth time, seventh time… It was until her desk-mate, Xu Wen Nuan, and his roommate, Wu Hao, got together before they their lives officially intersected.
