“Qian Wei!” Lu Xun looked at the yellowish-brown stain on his shoes and finally stopped being aloof, and his voice was full of barely restrained anger.
“Didn’t I warn you?” Qian Wei looked very innocent. “I told you there was dog shit on the road…”
“Whatever, when will you stop following me?” Lu Xun finally lost his cool.
“I’m not following you. I’m going to the library, too.”
It was a pity that there was only one way to the library from here, otherwise, Qian Wei had no doubt that Lu Xun would rather make a long detour than walk with her.
“I’m really not following you. I just want to make friends.” Qian Wei put on a sincere expression.
“Are you so short of friends? You want to find them on the road? You won’t even let a fellow student go to the library in peace?”
Qian Wei said shyly: “I just want to make friends with you. I told you that you are a role model for me to learn from. If I make friends with you, I think I can advance in life.”
“Really?” Lu Xun’s voice was chilly, “Since you want to make friends with me so badly, why was I the only one not given snacks earlier during the financial management elective? There were so many people around, but I was the one you didn’t give any to?”
“That…” Qian Wei started to sweat a little on her forehead. She spoke in a hurry, “Because other people are just ordinary classmates to me, it is enough for me to give them all the same snacks, but you are my idol and you are different. So, of course, I have to be more serious about you. How could you be treated the same as other ordinary classmates? What I gave them today are just ordinary domestic snacks. How can those ordinary domestic snacks match you?! Of course, only imported snacks are good enough for you!”
Lu Xun smiled faintly: “Thank you.”
Qian Wei was happy in her heart. It seemed that Lu Xun was no different from other people. He liked to listen to flattery. Just saying only imported food was worthy of him was enough to make him happy.
“Then bring me the imported snacks that I deserve when you bring me breakfast tomorrow.” Lu Xun was still smiling. “Don’t worry, since you have made me your idol. I will certainly accept your gift.”
Qian Wei: ???
Didn’t he know that this kind of praise was just lip service like ‘I’ll invite you to dinner next time’, which was simply empty politeness???
But it was okay! Qian Wei comforted herself that this was at least a breakthrough. Wasn’t her original intention to cling to Lu Xun’s thigh? Since childhood, Qian Wei had been taught to do everything to her fullest capacity! Therefore, to cling to his thigh, she had to go all out and dare to do what others did not dare to do!
“Lu Xun! Let me wash your sneakers!” Qian Wei spoke in an awe-inspiring tone, “Anyway, it was I that I was not careful and allowed you to step on dog shit, so I should be responsible!”
To offer to wash his shoes that stepped in shit, Qian Wei felt that she had made a great sacrifice to curry favor with the future boss, but Lu Xun didn’t seem grateful at all.
“You’re not the kind of person who likes to collect other people’s personal belongings, are you?” Lu Xun eyed Qian Wei suspiciously. “I’m starting to suspect that you put that shit in the middle of the road on purpose. Which normal person would run up and volunteer to wash my shoes? Do we know each other that well?”
If it were the usual Qian Wei, she would have exploded at him for daring to slander his big aunt here as a pervert. But since it was Lu Xun, Qian Wei thought about her future and unconsciously conceded.
“I really just want to be friends with you and I have no special thoughts about you. I have a heart only filled with admiration. I could be your follower!” Qian Wei said earnestly, “If you doubt me, you doubt yourself. Are you so unconfident in your own personal charm?”
Lu Xun’s features congealed for a moment. He looked at Qian Wei: “You want something, don’t you? What is it, you want me to let you peek when we are taking the final exams or something?”
“How could I be such a person!” Qian Wei said righteously, “But, of course, you could let me peek at your exams if you want to! What do you think of Criminal Law? If that one is too hard, I could also use Jurisprudence!”
“No, I don’t want to.”
“…” He didn’t have to say no so quickly. Could have given her a little face.
“As for whether or not we can be friends, it depends on your future performance.” Lu Xun looked into Qian Wei’s eyes with a smile, then turned around and walked away.
Was it here? Was this finally the chance in her life to create a relationship with Lu Xun?! Qian Wei looked at Lu Xun’s retreating back and almost burst into tears. She could almost see the glorious future scene where she relied on Lu Xun’s resources and connections to make money hand over fist many years later. It was beautiful, this scene was so beautiful!
Lu Xun! Don’t worry! She would do a good job!
After Lu Xun left, Qian Wei continued on to the library to apply for a job. There were many work-study jobs in the library this year, and Qian Wei successfully found one easily. When she finished applying for the job, she met Li Chongwen, who had come to study in the library. Qian Wei took the opportunity to talk to him and asked him to borrow his class notes. Of course, she had not changed her plan. Borrowing notes was just an excuse to be able to return them later. This way she will have a legitimate excuse to invite Li Chongwen to dinner next time to express her gratitude. It could be called a perfect plan.
She was getting closer to Lu Xun, the future boss. She was becoming friends with Lu Xun and Mo Zixin and would soon help Lu Xun and Mo Zixin by playing matchmaker between them. She was changing Li Chongwen’s life to prevent him from repeating the same mistakes of the past and getting sick. And she had embarked on the road of getting rich by working and saving up money to buy a house. Up to now, Qian Wei could be said to be advancing slowly and methodically on all fronts after her rebirth. On her way back to the dormitory, Qian Wei pondered about it while walking. The only thing was that she hadn’t started to act yet, but it was not too late to start now!
Liu Shiyun looked curiously at the bunch of things that Qian Wei suddenly brought back, and she began to read out the words on the boxes.
“Zhang Guang 101. Bawang shampoo.* Qian Wei? Why did you buy so much?”
Qian Wei took out a set of Zhang Guang 101 and Bawang shampoo from the box and handed it to Liu Shiyun: “Good things, you deserve to have them. These are the best ones on the market at present. In view of our profound and revolutionary friendship, I will give you a set.”
Liu Shiyun was stunned: “These products are all for hair loss. You have a lot of hair, and I have a lot of hair. Why did you buy these things? You haven’t been brainwashed by some pyramid scheme to act as their dealer, have you? “
Qian Wei patted Liu Shiyun on the shoulder and said earnestly: “You will find later that as we study law, it is easy for us to lose hair and develop cold heads, so we should take precautions. Young person, you will be grateful to me in the future.”
“What about this?” Liu Shiyun found a colorful card from the pile of hair products, “‘Sunshine Fitness’? You? A person who is not diligent in any aspect has bought a membership card for the school gym? ” Liu Shiyun meditated for a moment before she suddenly realized, “I know! Do you have a crush on some guy in the gym?”
“You don’t understand anything!” Qian Wei looked at Liu Shiyun and said, “To study law, you need to have a strong physique! If you are physically strong, you will not die suddenly after staying up late. In addition, you especially need to practice sprinting and long-distance running, so that it is convenient to run away when you are being besieged by the other party.”
“Ah, come on, Qian Wei, you must have a crush on someone.” Liu Shiyun laughed and was a little sad. “But I’ll keep these hair products first. Recently, I have been feeling worried about something, maybe I really am losing hair.”
“What’s worrying you?”
“The professional skills contest that is coming up? The dean asked me to organize it, but to tell you the truth, who is interested in this kind of activity? Although there is a bonus for competing, it is so small, who cares about it? If only there was some kind of gimmick. There are so many women in our law school. So, for example, if we can call Lu Xun to participate, we will be able to attract many girls to attend.”
“Then go and ask Lu Xun!”
Liu Shiyun rolled her eyes and said, “Don’t even think about it. Lu Xun can’t take part in this level of activity. It’s too simple and unclassy. People won’t like it at all. He participates in international competitions. Do you know that, Jessup International Law Moot Court Competition or the All English Professional Legal Debate? That’s where he belongs. Forget it. I won’t talk to you about it. I need to think about how to hold the professional skills contest next month.”
Liu Shiyun left to work on her business. Qian Wei did not sit idle, she was proactive and went to the gym that night.
Qian Wei in her last life, as Liu Shiyun said, had never thought of exercising and never even stepped into the gym once. This time, when she went it was a real eye-opener. The gym was located on the first floor of the large campus gymnasium. The facilities were luxurious. There were rows of treadmills in the equipment room and many people were exercising. On one side of the equipment room was the swimming pool. This swimming pool had been requisitioned for many sports events held in City A, and the facilities were very complete. On the other side of the equipment room was a practice room, which usually had dance classes such as yoga and ballet. When she arrived she could hear waves of girls’ twittering voices and music from the practice room. Qian Wei asked and found out that the Culture and Entertainment Department of the Student Union was rehearsing for this year’s Mid-Autumn Festival dance program. There were billiard tables in the hall of the gym that was connected to the equipment room. But right now there were not many people who really came to exercise. On the contrary, the billiard tables were very popular. Qian Wei took a curious look around at the group of people. Playing billiards was a popular pastime among the boys. They smelled of gaudy fragrances, their hairstyles were all unique, and many of them had colorfully dyed hair with earrings in their ears. The leading one had a lighted cigarette between his fingers, completely ignoring the no-smoking sign in the gym. In recent years, because of the expansion of enrollment, A University had also set up a second-level college. Although it also bore the name of A University and the dormitories and teaching building were also in A University campus, but the actual admission score was much lower than that of the orthodox Undergraduate Department of A University. So their students were naturally not as good. Many young delinquents from good families with money were stuffed in by their families. Now, as a result, they did not study hard in school but instead liked to hang around all day. The people at the billiard tables were mostly from that same second-tier college.
Those people were murmuring to each other and having hushed conversations, but Qian Wei didn’t care. She went straight to the equipment room, got on a treadmill, and began to run.
After twenty minutes she was sweating. While Qian Wei was slowly getting into her stride, she suddenly heard the sound of a commotion in the hall.
“Why don’t you stay and play billiards with our Brother Tian. You don’t like him?”
“Give me face and play with me. I’ll treat you to dinner later.”
“No need for dinner, please get out of the way, we’re going back to the dormitory.”
Among the miscellaneous male voices, the crisp female voice replying was very clear.
Qian Wei stopped running and looked over at the billiard table and saw a familiar face.
Mo Zixin and several girls were being stopped at the billiard table by the group of punks. They were still wearing dance costumes, it seemed they were the ones who were rehearsing for the show in the practice room just now.
The leader of the punks, known as Brother Tian, smiled and lifted his long bangs in a gesture that he thought was very handsome: “What’s your name? Why not leave your number and make a new friend.”
Of course, he was looking at the most beautiful girl in the group, Mo Zixin. Her close-fitting dance costume wrapped her body tightly and outlined her beautiful curves. Her face was still red because of the dance rehearsal, it was covered with small beads of sweat but her beauty was not diminished at all. But her beautiful face was covered with an icy mask of rejection.
“I have a boyfriend. I’m sorry.”
“Even if you have a boyfriend, you can still break up. What’s the use of a boyfriend who doesn’t accompany you or pick you up at a time like this? Why don’t you change for a better one now and I’ll take you back?”
Mo Zixin was used to male attention. But now meeting a man with such a lewd face, she soon became impatient: “Get out of the way. If you do not get out of the way, I will call the police.”
What this punk whose brain was muddled with hormones cared about most was his face. When Mo Zixin replied with this attitude in front of several other girls and his own followers. The leader, Brother Tian, felt like his face was ripped down by this girl. He pressed his cigarette out and winked at several of his brothers.
“Not only will you stay and play billiards tonight, but you will also accompany us to play outside.”
Qian Wei was worried, Mo Zixin, ah Mo Zixin, could she not take a softer approach? Must you take such a hard stance in this situation? The several girls traveling with Mo Zixin were probably not used to this sort of situation and they were not the types with many schemes. So they began to quarrel with the thugs directly, and the thugs began to yank and tug at Mo Zixin and her party. The situation was becoming more and more uncontrollable.
Qian Wei really couldn’t just watch, but all the boys who were exercising earlier in the equipment room were gone, so she could only call Qian Chuan quickly: “Something big is happening in the gym, so hurry up and bring some brothers from your Institute of Physical Education to come to the rescue.”
After Qian Wei hurriedly called Qian Chuan she rushed out of the equipment room, ready to go to the hall to help Mo Zixin out.
“What are you doing? Stay there.”
Just as she was about to rush out, a hand grabbed her collar from behind her, and a lazy male voice sounded.
Only when Qian Wei looked back did she see clearly who the newcomer was.
On the cool September night, the teenager in front of her was wearing a baggy sports T-shirt. He had just come out of the shower room and water was dripping from his hair and down his forehead. His snow-white face was still a touch red because of the temperature of the shower and his lips were full. He had deep black eyes, slender eyelashes, and the long legs exposed from under the sweatpants were straight and sexy. Seeing him Qian Wei could not help swallowing her drool. Lu Xun, his legs were amazing and the lines of his body were really beautiful. His toned muscles could be seen under the skin, not overly masculine or rugged, but just right.
Even though Qian Wei was surprised by her sudden luck, she didn’t forget the important business. She was excited to see her savior: “Lu Xun!”
Lu Xun glanced at Qian Wei and lifted the hem of his sports T-shirt and to wipe his hair that had not yet been blown dry. In an instant, tiny flecks of water flew out and fell on Qian Wei’s face. Only then did Qian Wei realize how hot her face was. She looked at the tight abdomen exposed by Lu Xun’s action and only felt that her face was so hot that as soon as the drop of water touched her skin, it would be evaporated by the temperature of her face. Because it was inadvertent, it seemed that much more voluptuous. The 19-year-old Lu Xun was still between his youthful exuberance and the sharpness of maturity. He emitted male hormones wildly. Qian Wei desperately whispered in her own heart ‘Don’t think about it, don’t think about it,’ but those abs and his mermaid line were still sloshing in her mind. Her thoughts were muddled and she almost thought it was a pity for Lu Xun to be a lawyer. Being a male model might make him rich a little faster.
