Also, Rong Si would definitely get angry at her. He might even break up with her.
Alright. That’s the plan then.
However, the paparazzo that Rong Xi had hired tailed Su Jiu for a week to no avail. Although the paparazzo was supposed to take suspicious and unflattering photos of Su Jiu, he quickly realized that the nation’s first love was beautiful and cute no matter how he tried to frame it.?How strange!
Every day, he would stare at the photo of the girl. The paparazzo felt that he was close to being tempted into becoming Su Jiu’s fan too. If not for Rong Xi’s frequent calls, he might have become one.
The nation’s first love, the nation’s younger sister… this girl was awesome. She had brought back the teenage heart that had long disappeared inside him!
However, he needed the money. So, he could only continue to keep an eye on Su Jiu.
If I can’t get an unflattering picture, I’m sure I can get one of other boys flirting with her, right?
He refused to believe that a pretty and lovely young lady like Su Jiu wouldn’t have boys pestering her. When the time came, all he needed to do was take a few pictures.
However, he still didn’t get a shot of anything in the next few days. He was about to quit when he spotted the silhouette of a boy waiting outside her front door. The boy looked familiar.
The paparazzo took a closer look.?Isn’t this… Han Siye, the son of Best Actor Han Xiao?
Why is he at Su Jiu’s house? Are they close?
Seeing Han Siye stop at the courtyard of the villa and Su Jiu walk out, the paparazzo quickly picked up his camera and took several photos.
Su Jiu had been chatting with Rong Si on WeChat when Auntie Zhang had knocked on the door and said that Han Siye was here. He seemed to have something important to tell her, so she came out to ask.
Su Jiu was wearing a white cotton dress with a lotus-leaf skirt, and she looked especially fresh. Her skin was very fair and appeared translucent under the bright light. Even without makeup, her facial features looked exquisite. Han Siye could not help but be entranced.
Su Jiu stopped a meter in front of him and confusedly asked, “Were you looking for me?”
Han Siye sensed that she was deliberately keeping a distance from him, and his mouth turned dry, but he smiled and said, “Little Jiu, long time no see.”
“Not at all. It has been less than a month since the summer holidays. What do you mean ‘long’?”
Su Jiu’s answer was quite straightforward. Han Siye clutched his chest and looked hurt. “Little Jiu, don’t you know that the days of not seeing you feel like years to me? I feel like a long time has passed.”
Su Jiu’s lips twitched. “What are you doing here?”
At this point, Han Siye’s expression suddenly turned awkward, as if he was embarrassed. He took out a box of candy with a pink ribbon tied around it from his casual bag and handed it to her. “Here.”
“What is this?” Su Jiu did not take it immediately.
“Candy, of course. What else could it be?”
Su Jiu suspiciously looked at him, wondering why he had suddenly given her this.?Does he still think he has a chance with me?
Inwardly, she wanted to say no.
However, Han Siye shook his head and said, “No, I just have a lot of sweets at home.
“I’m giving it to you. Just take it! Even if we can’t be boyfriend and girlfriend, can’t we just be ordinary friends? Can’t I just give you a box of candy?” Han Siye snorted.
“But…” The box of candy felt like a bomb in her hands.
“But what? Don’t get me wrong, Little Jiu. I’m not asking you to be my girlfriend again. This was actually from a wedding reception of one of my relatives. He gave me the candies. I heard that if you eat them, you’ll experience a happy event. So, they are for you.”
The more Han Siye spoke, the more embarrassed he became. Seeing that Su Jiu was still looking at him suspiciously, he quickly added, “I really didn’t mean anything else! I gave you this because you love candy. Also, I wanted to bring you good luck. Anyway, I’ve already given it to you. If you don’t want it, just throw it away.”
Su Jiu was speechless.
You call that a gift? You basically forced it into my hands.
“No need. You need your luck, too. Better keep it for yourself.” She handed the candy box back to him.
Han Siye immediately glared at her. “I said I’ve given it to you. Take it. If you don’t want it, throw it away!”
Then, he turned and walked away, quickly, as if he was afraid she’d give him back the box of candy.
Su Jiu stood where he was and watched his tall and handsome figure leave. She sighed helplessly and turned to walk back. After walking into the house, she saw Auntie Zhang watering the flowers in the living room. Su Jiu thought for a moment and said, “Auntie Zhang, do you want to give this box of candy to your grandson?”
Auntie Zhang looked at the box. “Huh? Little Jiu, who gave this to you? The boy from earlier?”
Su Jiu nodded. Auntie Zhang’s eyes lit up as if she had discovered a new continent. She quickly said, “Little Jiu, he likes you too, right? He came to give you candy personally. He definitely likes you.”
Su Jiu mumbled softly. “But I don’t feel that way about him…”
Even if Han Siye’s looks were no worse than the little villain’s, she still did not like him.
Su Jiu silently apologized to Han Siye in her heart before passing the candy box to Auntie Zhang and returning to her room.
In the afternoon, she woke up from her nap. Then, she took her cell phone from the bedside table and was about to video call Rong Si. He had returned to school two days ago and had started working on an investment project. If he succeeded, it would be another big step for him toward becoming a big shot!
She was deep in thought when she heard a knock on the door. “Little Jiu? Are you awake?”
Su Jiu hurriedly got up and opened the door. She looked at Auntie Zhang, who was making a fuss. “What’s wrong?”
Auntie Zhang showed her the phone. “Little Jiu, look, there’s suddenly a lot of news about you online!”
Su Jiu was stunned. She unlocked her cell phone and saw the bold headline. “Countless young men’s hearts are broken! Has the national sister asked the mysterious boy home for a sweet date?”
A few photos were attached to the bottom of the article. These were photos of Han Siye coming to look for her. He was pushing the candy can into her hand. Su Jiu had wanted to reject the box of candy at that time, but in the photos, her head was lowered and her expression could not be seen clearly. It looked as though she had accepted it.
Although Han Siye’s face was blurred out, it was still obvious that he was a very handsome young man. The netizens were surprised.
“No way, no way! Little Jiu has a boyfriend?”
“F*ck! Who stole my Little Jiu? Draw your sword! We’ll fight to the death!”
“How could she be in a relationship? I’ve always treated her as my wife, but now, she has broken my heart like this. Forget it. I’ll bear the pain, and give her up. I don’t want anything to do with her. Brothers, she’s all yours!”
“Who is this boy? I can tell from his figure and clothes that he is a very handsome young man!”
The discussions were in full swing online. Soon, #Su_Jiu’s_Boyfriend quickly became a trending topic.
