Chapter 319: Do You Want to Shower First, or Should I Shower First?
Xiang Huai had led her to say this.
Hence, after the mother asked, Xiang Huai sighed. “She’s not as lucky as your daughter.”
The mother instantly smiled. “F*ck, there are so many universities every year, but they only accept a fixed number of students. It’s fine. But what university did she apply to?”
Xiang Huai paused and said in a strange tone, “Huaxia University.”
The mother continued, “Although Huaxia University is not as good as the Capital University of Technology and Information Technology… no, which university did she get into again?”
Xiang Huai: “She was guaranteed admission to Huaxia University. However, her life is not as good as your daughter’s. She insisted on taking the college entrance examination and scored full marks. I originally thought that she would be able to relax and play like your daughter, but in the end, she still has to represent the country to partic.i.p.ate in the IMO compet.i.tion.
“Oh, right, do you know what the IMO is? It’s the International Mathematical Olympiad. Six people will be chosen from all over the country to represent the country, and they will receive the award.
“I’m so envious of your daughter. She can play around.”
After saying this, Xiang Huai said calmly, “It’s fine that she’s beautiful, but why must she be so good at her studies? I can’t help it. I can only be tired. I remember that there’s a saying in China. Oh, right, the capable do more work.”
He said in an indirect manner, “Your daughter is useless, so she doesn’t have to work hard!”
The mother and daughter’s faces turned red when they heard this. They stuttered and could no longer speak.
Xue Xi was reading seriously, but she could also mult.i.task and listen to him.
This man had always been a man of few words to others, but he actually said so much today… Wasn’t it because this mother did not know what was going on and thought that Xue Xi was a bad child, so she made an example of her to her daughter?
He really… did not accept any loss.
As she thought this silently in her heart, her cold lips curled up slightly.
An hour and a half later, the plane landed.
Xiang Huai shot a glance to the side. The mother-and-daughter pair hurriedly picked up their luggage in embarra.s.sment and walked toward the cabin entrance, seemingly feeling ashamed.
Only then was Xiang Huai satisfied. He looked at Xue Xi smugly as though he was praising her. Unfortunately, Xue Xi ignored him and merely put her books into her bag.
On a scorching summer day, Xue Xi was wearing a black short-sleeved shirt and shorts, revealing a pair of long, straight, and fair legs. On her feet were white flats. She looked exceptionally dashing.
She pressed down on her black baseball cap and pushed her red hair behind her. After a series of actions, the plane finally stopped and everyone alighted.
After taking their luggage and leaving the airport, Xiang Huai led them to a car that he had arranged to fetch them beforehand.
Qin Shuang lowered her head and did not speak until she got into the car. When Xiang Huai asked her where she was staying, Qin Shuang said, “Let’s go to that apartment. My husband is filming outside and he lent it to me this month. Sister Xi, why don’t you stay with me?”
Xiang Huai shot her a glance.
Qin Shuang instantly understood and said, “Pretend I didn’t say anything.”
Xiang Huai retracted his gaze.
Xue Xi ignored the two of them the entire time. When she got into the car, she was still reading the book in her hand. She even took out a small laptop from her huge backpack and knocked on it a few times.
Qin Shuang hesitated.
Seeing that they were about to reach Cen Bai’s neighborhood, Xue Xi put away her computer and looked at her. “Speak.”
Qin Shuang fell silent for a moment before saying, “Flame Number One sent me a message just now. He said that it’s no wonder that Feng Yan did not appear at Brother Chen’s funeral. It turns out that he has been at the foot of Bin Mountain all this while. He wants to tour the entire mountain and search for everything Brother Chen had left behind. He has been staying in Bin City for half a month now.”
The car instantly fell silent.

It had been half a month since Gao Yanchen’s death, but when he was mentioned, Xue Xi’s eyes narrowed. She hesitated for a moment before replying lightly, “Oh.”
She frowned and looked at him. “What kind of room?”
The service staff carefully shot Xiang Huai a glance and said, “There are two beds in the two-person room.”
Xue Xi heaved a sigh of relief. “Alright, then.”
If there was only one bed, then Xiang Huai would have had to sleep in the corridor, because it would be impossible for him to sleep with her. One had to know that before coming to the capital, Xue Xi’s mother had specially instructed her that girls should respect themselves!
After settling the check-in procedures, Xue Xi walked in front with her backpack while Xiang Huai followed behind her lazily.
After the two of them left, a service staff asked the person who had just checked them in, “Manager, there are clearly many rooms in the hotel. Why did you say that there’s only one left?”
The manager sighed. “Because the boss said that there’s only one room left!”
The service staff beside him: “?”
The manager looked at the sky silently. Who asked the hotel to be a property under the G.o.d of Fortune Group? The moment Mr. Xiang appeared at the door, he appeared.
There was also Mr. Xiang’s special suite upstairs. He did not even stay there… It’s best not to guess what the boss was thinking!
After entering the room, Xue Xi saw that there were indeed two beds, but weren’t the two beds too close to each other? What was the difference between this and a single bed?
The corners of her lips twitched as she heard Xiang Huai ask, “Little kid, do you want to shower first or should I shower first?”
Xue Xi: “?”
For some unknown reason, even though the room was originally quite big, when he said this, it made one feel that the s.p.a.ce had become narrow and cramped…
