Chapter 46: Mentor-Apprentice Romance?
She was taken aback when she saw the message.
Did she see it wrongly?
Just as she was feeling confused, a teacher shouted, “Xue Xi, are you leaving? The lecture theater is closing soon.”
Xue Xi stood up. “…Yes.”
When she carried her books and left, she placed her phone in her pocket before heading to her cla.s.sroom.
At the provision store.
Xiang Huai stared at his phone as his gaze landed on the last message that he sent: “Call me ‘brother’ and I’ll lend it to you.”
He remembered that Xue Xi was introduced by Zhou Zhou as Ji Silin’s sister when she was first added to the group.
Tsk! Even though he had lowered his pride by coaxing and lying to her, the little kid still did not add him on WeChat while Ji Silin became her brother without making a sound.
How can a girl carelessly address others as ‘brother’?
He tapped his fingers on the table and imagined that she was calling him “brother” sweetly…
But why hasn’t she replied yet?
Meanwhile, the “Who is the young lady?” group was a pandemonium.
Cen Bai: “D*mn! What’s happening in the group? Why do I feel that General Xiang is flirting?”
Zhou Zhou: “Sister Xi is truly formidable. She still hasn’t replied until now. Does it mean she is rejecting it? Why do I feel that we, who witnessed that person’s failure in flirting, will probably be doomed?!”
The rest shuddered.
Feng Xingshen: “That person has spoken way too much during this period of time. This is unusual. Do you want to remind the young lady to not offend him? I’m afraid that she’ll vanish from the group tomorrow!”
Zhou Zhou: “…I don’t dare.”
Cen Bai: “…Me too.”
The rest: “We’re all even more afraid.”
Just as the moguls were peering at the group chat and worrying about Xue Xi, there came a new message.
Ji Silin: “She is a junior and dares not address you as ‘brother.’ If you’re willing to guide her, why not let my sister address you as ‘mentor’?”
When the moguls saw this message, they dared not to even breathe. Everyone wished they could disappear from the group. They did not want to be implicated when the deities were fighting.
Xiang Huai, who had been waiting for Xue Xi’s reply, was overflowing with patience because his little kid tended to respond slower.
After he’d been waiting for five minutes, there was a new message in the group. Upon reading the content clearly, he c.o.c.ked his brow and scorned the sender.
Is he raising his seniority straight away?
If he did not recall wrongly, Ji Silin was older than he was by a year. Moreover, who was he to make the decision on behalf of the little kid?
When he was about to reply, his fingers halted.
Mentor… He imagined the little kid addressing him respectfully. It seems like a mentor-apprentice romance is also not bad…
A moment of hesitation later, there was another message in the group.
Learning: “May I? I really love studying. Will you be my mentor?”
Xiang Huai’s ire was extinguished right away. His cold facial features slowly softened. He chuckled as his fingers moved: “Sure.”
Immediately, Xue Xi received Omnipotent Boss’s private message as he sent him the resources that she needed.
Xue Xi looked until the end, her eyes sparkling. “Thanks, Mentor!”
She was already back in the cla.s.sroom. After sending the message, she carried her school bag and wanted to head home.
However, when she arrived at the entrance, she received Uncle Li’s message: “Eldest Young Mistress, Ms. Xue Yao insisted on me sending her back first. Wait a while and I’ll fetch you after sending her home.”
Xue Xi frowned upon seeing the message.

She woke up early this morning, and by the time she left the house, Xue Yao still had not woken up. Hence, she left early and took public transport to school.
He sped the whole way and did not slow down even though he was reaching the Xue family’s home.
Although he lost to Xue Xi in fighting, it did not mean that he was bad in other areas.
A girl would definitely be terrified and dizzy during their first convertible car ride. I want to make her cry!
At the thought of it, he stepped on the accelerator and raced to the entrance of the Xue family’s home before coming to a halt abruptly. He turned the steering wheel intensely and did a drift before changing the car’s direction and stopping at the gate as the car raised a cloud of dust.
After acting suave, he turned to look at Xue Xi. “Are you afraid…”
Before he could finish the sentence, his eyes met the girl’s bright and excited ones.
Xue Xi was exhilarated. “So fast!”
She sighed and touched the car. “If only I could get a driver’s license and have a convertible too.”
This way, she could save 30 minutes before and after school to do her questions!
With this thought in mind, she carried her school bag and walked through the gate relaxedly.
Gao Yanchen: “…”
Just as she entered the house, her phone rang. It was a message from Canine Teeth. “Did you ride your friend’s convertible back home?”
Xue Xi replied unhurriedly. “Yes.”
Canine Teeth: “Is that boy going after you?”
The corners of her lips twitched as she replied: “It’s none of your business.”
Xiang Huai: “??”
Approximately two minutes later, his phone showed that the resources sent via WeChat had been accepted. This meant that she had gotten home.
She even took the initiative to send him a message.
Learning: “Mentor, do you think it’ll be easy to learn how to drive a convertible?”
