Chapter 108: You Are Not Suitable
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
When Lu Chao, who was drinking milk, heard this, he almost spat it out.
She sounded as though she had given him a lot of money!
From the moment they met until now, she had given him 300 yuan, right? But Boss had already given her three million!
Xiang Huai did not expect her to ask such a question. He raised an eyebrow. “Why do you ask that?”
Xue Xi said truthfully, “My cla.s.smate asked me to introduce you to her yesterday.”
She paused and silently swallowed the words, “she’s richer than I am.” What if this man was really tempted?
Xiang Huai burst out laughing. He lifted his eyes slightly and stared at her with his dark brown gaze. His deep voice was especially seductive as he said, “Little kid, do you think I’m with you right now for your money?”
For some reason, Xue Xi felt her heart burn. She quickly retracted her gaze.
After having breakfast and then holding hands with Xiang Huai for a while, Xue Xi stood up and prepared to go to cla.s.s. She picked up her bag with one hand and put on her baseball cap. Just as she was about to leave, she suddenly thought of something and turned around to take out her wallet.
Xue Xi did not have much money to spend, so the pocket money in her wallet was not much. She counted what’s inside and found there were about a thousand. Her heart ached for her wallet for a while, but she steeled her heart and took out the entire thousand yuan. She placed it on the table and said, “Buy something delicious.”
Xiang Huai stared at the yuan on the table with a complicated expression.
He then reached out with a smile and put the money back into his wallet. Seeing that Xue Xi was still staring at him, he hesitated for a while before saying uncertainly, “Thank you, boss?”
She felt that these words sounded weird.
Xue Xi retracted her gaze and was about to leave when she heard the chair behind her creak. Xiang Huai stood up and walked to her side.
Xue Xi looked at him in confusion. “What are you doing?”
Xiang Huai placed both hands in his pockets and lowered his head slightly. The contrast between his fair skin and the black hoodie made his face even paler.
His Adam’s apple bobbed and he chuckled. “Let me have the right to be your boyfriend.”
Xue Xi paused and saw the man slowly lowering his head. The man’s face was getting closer and closer to hers, and her heart suddenly accelerated.
She gulped and looked at him warily.
The man’s lips brushed past her cheeks and he whispered into her ear, “Gonna send a little kid to school.”
Xue Xi heaved a huge sigh of relief and her misty eyes were filled with realization. “So that’s what it is.”
The man chuckled. “What did you think it was?”
Xue Xi turned around and walked forward, replying slowly, “I thought you wanted to kiss me.”
Xiang Huai paused. “Hm?”
“Luckily, you didn’t,” Xue Xi replied without turning back. “Otherwise, I’d have beaten you up.”
Xiang Huai broke into laughter again and realized that he was already two steps behind the girl. He did not speed up, yet he caught up to Xue Xi and walked beside her.
The journey from the provision store to the school was not long. Usually, they would only walk for five minutes. If they walked faster, they would arrive in two to three minutes.
Xue Xi would habitually memorize a few words when she walked, but today, her attention was attracted by the shadow on the ground.
The sun rose from the east and cast their shadows on the ground. Due to the angle, the shadows were entangled together.
By the side of the road, the trees’ leaves had already turned yellow. However, the willow branches were still swaying in the wind, emitting a “swoosh” sound. This made the road even more warm.

It felt to Xue Xi that in the blink of an eye, the two of them had already arrived at the school gate. She looked at the time in confusion and realized that this short path had taken them seven minutes to traverse.
One had a gloomy expression while the other had a haughty expression.
However, both youths were staring fiercely at his hand.
Xiang Huai was extremely satisfied. A sharp glint flashed across his deep eyes.
He reached out and touched his lips.
Both of their expressions changed.
The former’s face was tense and he was shocked.
The latter widened his eyes in anger.
Xiang Huai became even more satisfied.
He slowly placed his fingers in his pocket and turned to leave.
At this moment, Fan Han walked over. “h.e.l.lo.”
Xiang Huai paused in his steps and looked at the man who broke off his engagement with the little kid. Speaking of which, Xiang Huai should at least be grateful to him. Given the little kid’s personality, if Fan Han had not suggested canceling the engagement, she might have given in.
But he broke off the engagement and gave Xiang Huai a chance.
Fan Han stared at him. “You guys are not compatible.”
Xiang Huai raised an eyebrow and did not speak, but his aura was intimidating.
Fan Han was instantly suppressed, but he quickly recalled that this person was a provision store owner. What was there to be afraid of?
He gathered his courage and raised his head. “You are just a pretty boy she’s keeping. The difference between you and me is too great!”
Seeing that Xiang Huai was still unmoved, Fan Han suddenly said, “For example, the day after tomorrow is Elder Gao’s birthday. Those who can attend the banquet are all reputable people, and people like you don’t even have the right to get an invitation!”
