No other choice but to let her stay

When Gu Hai came out of the toilet, he saw Bai Luo Yin smoking in the corridor. You Qi said something that caused the two to look at each other and laugh out loud— that scene was quite visually attractive.

Gu Hai’s expression became increasingly gloomy.

Seeing Gu Hai standing not too far off from where they were, You Qi waved his hand in a rather dashing manner at him.

“Was that person just now your little brother?”

“Your little brother!”

Gu Hai’s face darkened. Even if he had fought with Jin Lu Lu earlier, but he could not listen to other people talking about his girlfriend like that!

You Qi tossed a stick of cigarette over to Gu Hai.

“Then, who was it?”

Gu Hai replied with a cold tone, “My girlfriend.”

Hearing that word, Bai Luo Yin’s wandering gaze finally settled on Gu Hai.


A loud shriek broke the calmness in that corner.

The whole corridor suddenly seethed with excitement.

“It seems like someone is fighting.” You Qi popped his head out of the corner for a look.

Bai Luo Yin said faintly, “How come that loud voice just now sounded like Dan Xiao Xuan?”

Just as his voice faded, the sound of a girl shouting, and another crying could be heard again. Gu Hai’s expression changed before he suddenly strode out. But before he even reached the classroom door, the scene before his eyes forced him to stop in track.

Jin Lu Lu gripped Dan Xiao Xuan’s hair and dragged her toward the window before slapping her face repeatedly. The whole corridor was filled with Dan Xiao Xuan’s painful cries.

Jin Lu Lu seemed as if she hadn’t vented her anger enough yet as she kicked Dan Xiao Xuan’s stomach twice. Dan Xiao Xuan fell to the floor and cried some more while holding her stomach, but then Jin Lu Lu stepped on her.

“Fuck you! You bitch!”

You Qi and Bai Luo Yin also hastily rushed out of that corner.

With just one glance, You Qi immediately recognized Jin Lu Lu and elbowed Bai Luo Yin.

“Say, how can Gu Hai be attracted to her?”

Without any expression, Bai Luo Yin glanced over at Jin Lu Lu indifferently.

“You ask me, how would I know?”

“Don’t you always stick together with Gu Hai all day long? He never told you anything about his girlfriend?”

Apparently, Bai Luo Yin only responded to You Qi’s first question.

“When did I always stick together with him?”

“You’re always with him!” You Qi was extremely angry, to the point that even his perpetually cool appearance was shattered. “The two of you were archenemy before, but now you two are always together all the time. Come on, everyone in the entire class is bewildered!”

Bai Luo Yin didn’t say a word, he simply turned around and entered the classroom.

You Qi only murmured behind him, “If you’re together then you’re together, it’s not like you guys are dating. Why are you being so sensitive?”

Gu Hai brought the nearly mad Jin Lu Lu to the sports field.

“What exactly are you trying to do?”

Although the corner of Jin Lu Lu’s mouth was bleeding from Dan Xiao Xuan’s fingers scratching at her, she still showed a broken smile upon Gu Hai’s interrogation.

“I just want her to know, what would happen if she tries to my boyfriend.”

Gu Hai narrowed his eyes and stared at her with a cold and sharp gaze.

“I’m warning you for the last time, don’t make groundless accusations against me.”

“If you don’t have a new girlfriend, then why haven’t you contact me?” Jin Lu Lu’s voice was somewhat hoarse, “If you don’t have a new girlfriend, then why are you avoiding me and not letting me show up at your classroom’s door? Do you think I’m going to embarrass you? Do you think I’m not good enough for you?”

“I really hate neurotic girls.”

Jin Lu Lu snorted loudly, “Since you have already started to hate me, then I will make you hate me even more. You hate it when I show up at your classroom door, right? Good, then I’ll come here every week until you leave.”

A plume of pitch-black clouds floated above Gu Hai’s head.

“Why are you always so insistence about staying here? What is so good here?”

“There is nothing good here. But you are here.”

Jin Lu Lu’s dedicated eyes finally touched Gu Hai’s nerves sharply. He went silent for a long time before extending his hand out to wipe the bloodstains on her mouth.

“I’ll bring you to the infirmary to get some medicine.”

“I’m not going!” Jin Lu Lu pulled Gu Hai back as her eyes reddened slightly. “Actually, what I want is really simple. I only want to see what kind of life you’re living here, is that so wrong? I would like to ask, if you like someone, would you not care about their living condition? I just want to be a part of your life, that is what being a couple is about. What are we? I don’t even know where you live!”

Gu Hai looked at Jin Lu Lu for a moment before he said, “I promise you to let you stay here for a few days.”

Jin Lu Lu’s expression immediately glowed with youthfulness.

“But, I have one condition!”

This time, Jin Lu Lu revealed a very understanding look.

“Tell me.”

“Do not mention anything about my family in front of my classmates, as well as my lifestyle before. Now, you have to treat me like I’m a poor man. I’m poor, you have to remember these two words. No matter what you say or what you do, you cannot separate me from those words. And, it’s best if you don’t show off your wealth in front of my classmates, keep a low profile.”

“Poor?” Jin Lu Lu was puzzled, “How poor?”

“As poor as possible.”

Jin Lu Lu was shocked for a while, but then she nodded. After all, Gu Hai’s special status was never known to anyone. Even in his previous school, the details of his family’s situation had always been kept silent. As Gu Hai’s girlfriend, she had enough experience to keep her boyfriend out of trouble.
