“It’s so noisy, what’s going on out there?” Lu Xun’s words startled Qian Wei out of her daze.
Qian Wei moved her eyes and cleared her throat: “Mo Zixin has gotten entangled with some punks! I was going to help! But luckily you showed up.”
“Okay, it’s none of your business.” As Lu Xun spoke, he walked down the hall, and Qian Wei followed behind him.
Mo Zixin soon saw Lu Xun coming, and her originally cold face broke into a smile of relief: “Lu Xun, that’s great, you’re here.” She turned to look at the head of the punks who called himself Brother Tian. “This is my boyfriend. He’s here to take me back to my dorm now that I’m done exercising.” As she spoke, Mo Zixin grabbed Lu Xun’s arm and her bright black eyes batted charmingly.
Lu Xun’s steps paused. Instead of responding to Mo Zixin’s words, he just glanced at the group of girls: “You all leave first. I’ll handle the rest.” He glanced at the group of punks in front of him. “If there is a problem, it should be solved between men. A group of men like you should not gang up to pick on some girls.”
“Well, since you said that, let’s talk about this man to man.” The leader of the punk smiled creepily but did not stop the girls from leaving.
After the girls were released, they were all ready to leave after briefly saying thank you. But Mo Zixin bit her lip and stood beside Lu Xun. She whispered, “I’ll accompany you.”
Lu Xun frowned. Then he slipped out of Mo Zixin’s grip easily and nudged her toward the door: “You leave first.”
Mo Zixin finally left reluctantly. But Qian Wei thought the heat from the lingering affection in her eyes might cause Lu Xun to melt.
Wasn’t this the classic scene from a TV drama where the hero saved the beauty? Mo Zixin was entangled with those punks but Lu Xun heroically came forward. For now he was pretending to be her boyfriend but soon the fake would become real. Mo Zixin was like a warm breeze that would blow through his heart, the scenario could be said to be perfect. Qian Wei felt a little surging excitement in her heart. Will she finally be able to witness the union of the future boss and the boss’s wife in this life? So soon? Qian Wei was immersed in her beautiful fantasies until Lu Xun’s impolite voice interrupted her thoughts.
“What are you doing still standing there?” Lu Xun glared at her. “You want to hang around and make a mess?”
Just look, he sent away Mo Zixin so politely, but he treated her like this… people really shouldn’t compare themselves to other people.
Qian Wei thought about it but it seemed like it was really useless to stay. She estimated that Qian Chuan would be here soon, so she might as well go outside the gym to find Qian Chuan and his brothers.
“I’ve called some more people to help you, I’ll go pick them up outside.” Qian Wei lowered her voice and winked at Lu Xun to show off her loyalty. “Don’t worry, I’m not the type to just run away. I, Qian Wei, will come back! Lu Xun, you can do it! Hold out until I get back!”
Lu Xun just indifferently glanced at Qian Wei: “Why are you saying so many lines? You are not a protagonist. Don’t try to add scenes for yourself. Just go.”
Mo Zixin and her group had left. Qian Wei anxiously waited at the door of the gymnasium to wait for Qian Chuan and his friends.
But Qian Chuan, that dead boy, didn’t show up. Instead, Lu Xun walked out leisurely with his hands in his pockets and shouted for Qian Wei.
Qian Wei: “??? You already came out?”
“Or what? Should I be being beaten up by those punks in there now?”
“That’s not what I meant!” Qian Wei anxiously looked at Lu Xun. “Did you receive any injuries?”
Lu Xun snorted with disdain: “Do you think all problems have to be solved by force? You think I’m your brother?”
“So you managed to convince all those punks? So quickly?”
“If people were so easy to influence, why would society need laws?”
“Then how did you solve it?” Qian is really curious.
“I just told them that Mo Zixin was very ugly when she took off her makeup.”
“I said we were about to break up and if he wanted to chase her, that was fine. I told him I would immediately give him her contact information and even help him chase her. That way he might be able to convince Mo Zixin to stop being so hung up on me.” Lu Xun shrugged. “But in the end, he didn’t want her contact information, he just told me to leave quickly.”
On the campus that evening, there was a gentle breeze, and there were not many people on the paths from the gym to the dormitory building. Qian Wei and Lu Xun walked quietly side by side.
“Fortunately, the matter calmed down. I asked Qian Chuan to bring some of his classmates from the Academy of Physical Education but he didn’t come because he was singing at a KTV outside just now. And since you already solved it so well, I told him not to come.” Although Qian Wei could not help in the end, how could she miss this opportunity to show her loyalty? “I was exercising, but as soon as I saw that Mo Zixin was in trouble, I immediately wanted to help. If you didn’t show up, I would have certainly stood up for Mo Zixin!”
Since she was showing her loyalty, she should show it not only to the future boss, but also to the future boss’s wife. After all, it was a great merit to say that you want to protect the future boss’s wife in front of the future boss.
However, Lu Xun, this man, did not seem to think in the usual way. Even though Qian Wei said so much he did not show any gratitude, instead he just raised an eyebrow: “What does Mo Zixin have to do with you? What can you even do if you stand up with your tiny strength?”
In that situation, it really would have been useless for her to stand up on her own.
But how could Qian Wei show any timidity in front of the boss? Qian Wei cleared her throat: “Although I cannot fight, I can frighten them with the law. I could tell them that their actions have violated Article 28 of the regulations for Administrative Penalties for Public Security. Arbitrarily chasing and intercepting others is a crime, and they would be detained for not less than ten days and not more than fifteen days, and they will be fined!” Qian Wei patted her chest and said, “Don’t worry, I am also very smart. Unlike Qian Chuan, I can use my brain to solve problems and conquer strong enemies with my excellent legal knowledge!”
“It’s Article 26.” Lu Xun glanced at Qian Wei. “Your idea was clever, but you don’t seem to actually have very good legal knowledge. Moreover, in order to be detained for not less than ten days and not more than fifteen days they would need to commit a more serious crime. With what they were doing, detention of not less than five days and not more than ten days would be more accurate.”
“…” Would he die if you didn’t pick at these little details? Lu Xun!
“It’s a good thing I went swimming tonight.” Lu Xun smiled after a moment of silence.
Qian Wei also relaxed. Yes, if Lu Xun hadn’t gone swimming in the gym tonight, Mo Zixin would have been in danger. But this was a really good ending. After tonight Lu Xun’s image in Mo Zixin’s heart should be very tall and strong. And Lu Xun would gradually realize her importance in his heart now that he saw Mo Zixin in danger.
The two walked side by side, and for a moment there was silence. Qian Wei felt a little embarrassed and was ready to try to find a topic when suddenly there were loud screams from the girls in the dormitory building in front of them.
“Pervert! Catch the pervert! “
Qian Wei was stupefied before she realized that the pervert who had snuck into the girls’ dormitory in the middle of the night must have done it again. While she was in a daze, she saw a man in a hat that was hurriedly escaping from the dormitory building.
“Catch the pervert! Don’t let him get away!” A girl upstairs was leaning over her balcony, pointing at the man and shouting. Before Qian Wei could fully react, Lu Xun had already run forward. He chased the man while being directed by the several girls upstairs. Qian Wei and Lu Xun were not far from the dormitory so he had an advantage in his pursuit.
Lu Xun was tall and long-legged, and even though he had just been swimming, his physical strength was still first-class. By the time Qian Wei caught up to him, sweaty and out of breath, he had already caught up with the peeping pervert, pushed him to the ground, and was ready to twist his arm behind his back.
The pervert began to struggle desperately, probably because he was afraid of being turned over to campus security. Qian Wei had a sharp eye and saw him take out a folding knife from his trouser pocket. It seemed he wanted to stab Lu Xun!
“Lu Xun, be careful!”
Qian Wei subconsciously rushed forward and tried to pry the knife out of his hand. Her sudden hindrance interfered with Lu Xun’s offensive. Lu Xun quickly moved over the other side and straddled the man’s back. He gave him a hard punch to completely suppress him. Also at this time, the rest of the boys who were passing by at the time had also bravely chased after them and now they all held down the pervert together.
In the moment, Qian Wei didn’t think much about it. She had used her hand to block the knife that was stabbing towards Lu Xun’s abdomen, and now she had a cut on her hand. When she returned to her senses she suddenly felt a throbbing pain. She was pale as she stared at the bleeding wound on her hand, she felt dizzy and in shock.
Lu Xun saw that someone else was pinning down the pervert and so he did not bother with him further. Instead he frowned and hurriedly walked to Qian Wei. He examined Qian Wei’s injured hand and said, “Come on, I’ll take you to the infirmary.”
“I… my legs are weak.” She was not exaggerating. Qian Wei was particularly afraid of death. Thinking about her bleeding wound at the moment she could only feel that her time had come. She was afraid she was going to bleed to death…
Lu Xun glanced at Qian Wei, who looked miserable, but said nothing. He simply scooped Qian Wei up in an instant.
Because of the pervert*, almost all the girls who had been about to go to bed were awake, so now there were many onlookers. Lu Xun seemed to be very conspicuous and he seemed to be practically exuding male hormones and a heroic aura after he had caught the pervert. Now he suddenly picked up a girl in front of so many people, the onlookers were all shocked.
Qian Wei was only thinking about her wound. She couldn’t care less about all the inquisitive, jealous, and unreadable eyes at all. She didn’t even fully comprehend that she was in Lu Xun’s arms, she just clung absently to Lu Xun’s coat.
“Lu Xun, I have something to say to you. I’m afraid I won’t have a chance if I don’t say it now.”
Lu Xun’s voice sounded a little nervous and at a loss when he responded: “Stop talking, you’ll be alright. I’ll take you to the infirmary.” As he spoke, he quickened his pace, but since he was holding Qian Wei in his arms, he was careful to be steady.
“Lu Xun, just give me this chance. That’s all I ask.” Qian Wei said in a weak voice, “You must remember that I got my injury today to save you, if I survive…”
“Are you going to ask me to marry you?”
“No!” Qian Wei excitedly grasped at the clothes on Lu Xun’s chest. “Am I the kind of person who takes advantage of others in matters of life and death? I’m not so crazy! I just want to say to you…”
“Lu Xun, if you get rich one day, don’t forget about me!” Qian Wei said with deep feelings, “If you prosper in the future, you must remember to take me with you to get rich and fly together. If you become a lawyer or a partner in the future, you must give me the best cases. If I become your subordinate, you must be a good boss and take care of me. Do not make me work a lot of overtime, give me bigger year-end bonuses, and if you find a promising young man remember to introduce him to me – it would be best if he was from a family with wealth but his parents died. That way, there will be no typical mother-in-law and daughter-in-law problems…”
*one of the MTLs actually called him a ‘sex wolf’ here and I was so amused I almost wanted to leave it like that
