The next day.
It was finally the day of the college entrance examinations.
Ruan Tian opened her front door and found there was man standing there, as if he had been up early waiting for her.
Qin Yu spun his car keys on his thumb and said, “I’ll take you there.”
Before Ruan Tian could open her mouth to disagree, Qin Yu looked at her sternly and said, “As a gigolo, it’s my duty to take good care of my financier. You don’t need to be polite with me.”
He hooked his lips into a smile and said, “After all, I have to live off this face.”
Ruan Tian rolled her eyes. She wasn’t in the mood to joke around right now.
But she still followed him downstairs and climbed into his car. Once she was inside, Qin Yu quickly reached over and fastened her seat belt for her, babbling the whole time, “Do you have your admission card and your ID card?”
Ruan Tian obviously won’t make such a low-level mistake. She had already triple-checked before going out the door okay!
She snorted and said, “I do.”
“Do you have your brain?”
“Go to hell.”
“Why are you so grumpy today?” Qin Yu tsked and continued, “Fine, fine, I didn’t realize that my financier had such a big temper.”
Ruan Tian finally couldn’t stand it and blurted out, “How on earth did you become a CEO?”
Qin Yu put on an expression like he was thinking carefully, then replied, “I relied on my body. After all, it’s worth five thousand each time.”
Ruan Tian was speechless. She suddenly didn’t even want to talk to this guy.
The drive wasn’t very far and, with the city’s traffic measures, there were no traffic jams on the way.
Thus, it only took them around twenty minutes to drive to the school.
Qin Yu found a spot to park the car, then walked together with Ruan Tian towards the gate. As they approached, an auntie who was volunteering and distributing water spotted them and came over.
She took one look at Ruan Tian, then handed her the cup of water in her hand and said, “Good child, do your best on the test.”
Ruan Tian, who was a grown woman re-taking the exam as an adult, couldn’t help but blush at being called ‘good child’.
The auntie seemed to be a warm-hearted person. She continued, “You two siblings have a good relationship. It’s such a hot day, but your big brother still came to accompany you for your college entrance examination.”
Qin Yu happily took advantage of the misunderstanding: “En, we’ve had a good relationship since we were young.”
Ruan Tian ignored his antics, her ponytail swaying as she walked away. However, a second before she entered the school, Qin Yu patted her shoulder and said with a smile, “Did you hear that, ‘good child’? Take the exam well, don’t embarrass your big brother. “
After passing the security check, Ruan Tian quietly entered the examination room.
Ruan Tian found her seat and sat down. She rested her chin on her hand and looked out the nearby window with faint eyes.
Soon, the bell marking 9:00 a.m. rang, and the exam began as scheduled.
Ruan Tian received the test paper for her first subject of the day: Chinese. She silently flipped through the test paper to look at the questions and felt vaguely that she could answer them. This confidence allowed her nerves to settle down, and she picked up her pen to begin working.
The test period was two and a half hours, which was just enough time for Ruan Tian to finish all of the questions.
And, true to that, she only stopped writing when there were less than ten minutes left of the initial two and a half hours.
After the invigilators came and collected the exam papers, Ruan Tian let out a long sigh of relief. She continued to sit in her seat to rest for a while before slowly getting up, packing her things, and following the rest of the examinees to leave.
It was already June, and the sun outside was scorching. As the examinees pushed the doors open to leave, the warm air from outside rushed in and filled the classroom. The air felt so humid a person could almost swim in it.
Moreover, Ruan Tian had conscientiously worn a mask because she didn’t want to be recognized by anyone and end up disturbing the other examinees, so she felt the heat even more clearly.
Outside the school gate, many anxious parents were craning their necks and trying to look inside to find their children as they came out.
These parents weren’t immune to the heat either, and many of them were trying to hide in the sparse patches of shade or using their hands to fan themselves while looking for their children.
When Ruan Tian came out, she was surprised to see a familiar figure waiting there. She really never would have guessed that Qin Yu would actually loiter around at the school gate with the anxious parents to wait for her to finish the exam.
He was standing there in the shade of a large tree, looking very conspicuous. When he spotted Ruan Tian in the crowd, he quickly took a few steps forward and said to her, “Are you hungry?”
He didn’t mention anything about how she did on the exam.
Ruan Tian nodded and replied, “En, hungry.”
Her hair was drooping and her whole person seemed a little dispirited, clearly exhausted from the long exam in the hot classroom.
“Get in the car. I’ll use the money I’ve earned recently as a gigolo and buy you a good meal.”
