At that ungodly hour, her phone rang. Song Yu let out a sigh and answered the call as she saw that it was from Guan Xiaolin. “Xiaolin.”
“Song Yu, are you home already?” Guan Xiaolin’s voice could be heard from the other end of the call.
“Yea, I just arrived.” Song Yu smiled.
“I didn’t expect Li Qianyi and Wu Lijun to behave like that at the restaurant just now. If I knew, I wouldn’t have called out to you. That’s just how they’re like. I hope you don’t take it to heart. I won’t hang out with them again in the future,” said Guan Xiaolin angrily.
“You’re telling me to let it go but you seem angrier than me.” Song Yu smiled and said, “I’m fine, really. I was never close to them. It took me some time to recall who they are by their names. Furthermore, we hold different values. I don’t think being self-sufficient is anything to be ashamed of. Don’t stop hanging out with them because of this small matter. After all, connections matter to you.”
“You’re still like the Song Yu I used to know. It’s hard for you to care about anything as if nothing can make you angry. It seems like I have more of a role in your life than yourself.” Guan Xiaolin shook her head as she did not know whether to laugh or cry.
“I know you’re doing this for my goodness’ sake. I appreciate it. I don’t think I should even get angry at such trivial matters, it’ll be at the expense of my health,” Song Yu spoke softly.
“Fine, I can’t beat you in that. By the way, Song Yu, be honest with me. What’s between you and Qi Chengzhi? Are you dating? I can’t believe that you’re hiding such big news from me. Do you really treat me as your friend?” Guan Xiaolin’s did not sound angry saying that.
“Don’t dramatize things. Since I transferred in the second year of high school after the bankruptcy, the engagement with the Qi family was also broken. I didn’t keep in touch with anyone from that circle except for you and you know this. I’ve never seen Qi Chengzhi for as long as my family has been bankrupt. I was scared of him even during my engagement with Qi Chengji. Furthermore, why would someone as unfathomable as him be interested in me?” Song Yu explained. She began to feel a slight headache at the mention of Qi Chengzhi.
“Really?” Guan Xiaolin sounded suspicious because of how dazzling and shocking the kiss was. She could not wipe the image off her head.
Song Yu could not be bothered to explain further. “Well, it’s okay if you don’t believe me.”
“I believe you. What’s with the rush?” Guan Xiaolin continued, “I wanted to call out to you when you were getting on Jian Yi’s car at the entrance of the restaurant. However, it was just too late. You guys had left.”
The conversation went on with Guan Xiaolin until Song Yu let out a yawn accidentally. She could hide her fatigue no more and this was caught by Guan Xiaolin. Xiaolin urged Song Yu to get some rest and hung up after.
Song Yu dragged her tired body to the bathroom, removed her makeup, and took a shower before she went to bed. She fell asleep the moment she closed her eyes.
