Chapter 19: You Can Miss Me
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
Xue Xi did the questions until late at night, and, as a result, she woke up slightly late the next day.
Ye Li packed her breakfast for her to eat on her way. Seeing her yawn, she said heart-achingly, “Xixi, even if you’re partic.i.p.ating in the Olympiad, you shouldn’t give yourself too much pressure. Health is the most important thing.”
Xue Xi nodded.
Xue Yao, who had just eaten, heard this and mocked, “If you don’t have a diamond cutter, don’t try to mend porcelain wares. Some people merely got first in one exam and think that they can conquer Olympiads as well. I heard that someone was last during yesterday’s mock exam.”
Xue Xi ignored her and left with her breakfast.
Old Liu said that she made great improvements yesterday, and as long as she avoided using certain knowledge, there wouldn’t be much problem. Of course, this meant that she needed to complete more questions.
Xue Yao followed behind her and tried to make references obliquely. “Could it be that your motive doesn’t lie in the Math Olympiad but in something else?”
Xue Xi turned a deaf ear to it and got in the car.
Xue Yao still wanted to speak, but she saw the girl leaning on the car window with her eyes closed, seemingly asleep. Her long lashes were curled upwards; her skin was fair, and her red lips were moist.
Xue Yao had a strong urge to destroy such beauty.
The car stopped in front of the provision store as usual and Xue Xi seemed to have slept enough. Just as she took her bag and was getting off, her cousin, who had resisted throughout the journey, mocked her again. “The Math Star Compet.i.tion will be held in a few days’ time, and if you can’t get a good ranking, Old Liu will kick you out of the Olympiad cla.s.s. Let me warn you, don’t dream about things that don’t belong to you!”
Xue Xi paused as she alighted and sighed helplessly.
This housefly is so annoying.
She slowly turned her head to look at Xue Yao and paused. “I remember that you’re joining the physics compet.i.tion?”
There was a grip on Xue Yao’s heart as she became defensive. “What are you trying to say?”
Xue Xi retracted her gaze and became apathetic again. “Nothing much.”
She adjusted her fallen shoulder strap and walked toward the provision store, leaving Xue Yao confused and shocked in the car.
As she entered the store, Xiang Huai was already sitting beside the dining table.
The dining table was somewhat small and the stools were like the chair of the international school’s students. Sitting on it, Xiang Huai had nowhere to stretch his long legs. He could only rest them on the table legs, and his sharp brows appeared lazy.
When Xue Xi sat down, he picked up a bun, and that was when Canine Teeth dared to eat.
The three remained silent, and very soon, they finished their breakfast. As Lu Chao cleaned the table, he asked Xue Xi, “Hey, how did the fighting yesterday feel?”
Xue Xi looked at him for two seconds and answered, “Quite interesting.”
Lu Chao: “?”
She then said slowly, “I can fight more often next time.”
Lu Chao: “…”
Seeing Xue Xi looking at him, Lu Chao swung his slightly numb hands and swallowed his saliva. Quickly, he answered, “I still have things on and have no time to train with you!”
She felt somewhat disappointed. “…Oh.”
She then shot a glance at Xiang Huai.
The man leaned backward and raised his brow. He thought the little kid would invite him to train with her, but her eyes lingered on him for merely four or five seconds before she looked away.
Xiang Huai was taken aback. What does she mean?
Xue Xi had already made her comment internally about him. Too skinny and merely has a nice appearance. It’s better to fight it out with Canine Teeth.
She stood up and was preparing to go to school, but all of a sudden, she paused and said to Xiang Huai, “It’s the weekend tomorrow and I need to go to my grandpa’s house. What should I do?”
She could not possibly come to the provision store and meet him after coming back from her grandfather’s house.
If I do not meet him, will my heart hurt?
While she was deep in thought, the man chuckled in his charismatic voice. He slowly sat upright. “Little kid, do you have some kind of misunderstanding about being in love?”
Baffled, she looked at him. “…Mhm?”

Xiang Huai placed his hands on the dining table and his fingers crossed as he leaned forward. “If it’s inconvenient, we don’t have to meet every day. If you’re feeling unwell, you can think of me, and if it still doesn’t work, you can call me.”
Xue Xi looked up at her. Qin Shuang was unlike her dispirited and terrified self yesterday. Leaning on her table, she gave it a thought and said, “Sister Xi, actually, Brother Chen is not bad. He isn’t as unreasonable as what outsiders make of him.”
Qin Shuang knew Xue Xi’s personality well and did not mind her aloofness. She continued, “Sister Xi, when I saw your army boxing yesterday, I began questioning whether what the instructor taught us is fake during military training! How did you fight that way?”
Xue Xi thought about what Canine Teeth had said and replied seriously, “…By being swift, resolute, and accurate.”
Qin Shuang laughed instantly and acted out. “I got it. Only the fastest martial arts in the world can’t be beaten up!”
Xue Xi silently added on. Afterward, she stopped listening to her and focused on doing her Olympiad questions.
Time always pa.s.ses quickly while studying, and before she knew it, two afternoon cla.s.ses had pa.s.sed.
Just as Xue Xi was about to go for Olympiad cla.s.s, the students in the cla.s.sroom drew back their breaths.
She lifted her head while feeling lost and saw a group of flashing, rampant redness.
That Brother Chen from last night was standing there and there was a look of impatience on his face. He was looking inside as though he was looking for someone.
Flame Number One was the first to spot Xue Xi, and he pointed at her and shouted, “Brother Chen, there!”
Instantly, Brother Chen, along with Flame Number One, Two, Three, and Four dashed into the room while Five, Six, and Seven stayed at the entrance.
They walked on the path and exuded a strong aura.
Brother Chen’s fierce look caused the students on both sides of the path to turn as pale as a sheet. They subconsciously moved aside and gave way.
As she sat in the first row, Xue Yao’s eyes lit up when she saw this!
He’s here! He’s here!
She knew that Gao Yanchen would definitely not let her off easily, and there he came.
However, to her surprise—
