Chapter 46: Hurtful snow

Gu Xia took Li Jingjing into the university and walked around the scenic places.

The campus at the moment was quite the sight to behold.. The roads were full of fallen leaves, and the wind blew all around.

There were couples sitting on the bench, snuggling together, talking sweet words of love.

Gu Xia was walking in front of Li Jingjing, and when the wind blew, he tightened his woolen jacket, it was so cold!

Maybe it was because they had just come out of the hot hot pot restaurant, and their body suddenly couldn’t accept the cold.

Li Jingjing followed behind Gu Xia, her eyes constantly scanning the couple who were either snuggling or kissing and hugging, and then looked at Gu Xia’s figure. And, no one knew what came to her mind, her face suddenly flushed red.

Gu Xia didn’t know what Li Jingjing was thinking behind his back. He felt a little cold all over, and he felt that it would be extremely cold at night.

Gu Xia felt something fall on his face, looked up, and realized that it had started to snow.

Snowflakes fluttered down one after another, one by one.

“Wow~ it’s snowing”

“Yeah~ so beautiful”

“…”

Everyone on the road cheered happily.

“Brother Xiao Xia, it’s snowing, it’s so beautiful!” Li Jingjing shouted excitedly.

“Well… the weather forecast said that there would be snow in the coming two days. I didn’t expect it to fall tonight.” Gu Xia laughed.

“Let’s go, the snowfall is getting a little heavy, I’ll take you back! Otherwise, you won’t be able to catch the bus when it’s time for you to go back.” Gu Xia said.

“Brother Xiao Xia, why do you keep urging me to go back, I don’t want to go back, why don’t you stay with me.” Li Jingjing said softly with her small mouth deflated.

“It’s so late, it’s still snowing, auntie should be worried about you.” Gu Xia said helplessly.

“It’s okay, can’t you see everyone is outside.”

Li Jingjing pointed to the couple and said.

Gu Xia became speechless… ‘Are they the same as us? When people are in love and hor*ny, let alone snow, even if it is hail, they can point to the hail outside and say, “Ah, what a beautiful hail!” 

Plus I’m almost freezing to death here, why would I want to accompany you outside?’

“Alright first, let’s just walk for a while, and then I’ll take you home.” Gu Xia said helplessly.

“Yes. That’s more like it~”

*****

“Let’s go, Jingjing”

“But I’m not done looking around yet!”

Gu Xia: “……..”

“Jingjing, it’s already 11 o’clock, let’s go, I’ll take you back.” Gu Xia said irritably.

“I’m not going back, I’ll go back tomorrow.” Li Jingjing stared at Gu Xia and said.

“How can that be? Why are you acting like this? I’ll call your mother.” Gu Xia said angrily. (G: Get the hint dude.)

“Why are you getting angry? It’s rare for me to see you once, and I can’t even ask you to accompany me, woohoo…” Li Jingjing started crying.

“But, it’s already so late, it’s so cold outside, and we’ve been walking for so long, you should go back, Jingjing.” Gu Xia frowned without looking at her tearful face.

“Brother Xiao Xia, don’t you really know what I mean?”

Gu Xia was stunned when he heard Li Jingjing’s words. He also vaguely knew what Li Jingjing meant, but he didn’t expect her to say it directly. He thought that she was just acting spoiled, and she would go back after a while.

‘Haah!’

I wasn’t like he really didn’t feel attracted to Li Jingjing. It would be wrong to say that he didn’t feel anything, but some things could only be kept in mind.

‘I already have my Sisi, so I can’t do anything to feel guilty towards her!’

If he accepted Jingjing, it would not only hurt Sisi, but also Jingjing herself!

“Jingjing, I understand your intentions, but your brother Xiao Xia already has a girlfriend, and you are still young. When you get older, you will find someone who really likes you.” Gu Xia sighed.

“Woooo…”

Li Jingjing heard his words and threw herself into Gu Xia’s arms.

She kept beating his chest, crying in disbelief, “I don’t believe it, I don’t believe it…”

Gu Xia looked at Li Jingjing in his arms, feeling helpless at the situation.

She might be feeling pain now, but it would slowly go away. Although it was cruel of him to say it now, it was better than saying it later. After some time passed, she would understand.

“It’s true, I didn’t lie to you.”

“Woooo…Why? Why? What’s wrong with me?” Li Jingjing raised her face, and looked at Gu Xia with tears streaming down her eyes.

“No, you are good, but I already have someone I like.” Gu Xia sighed.

“Why? Didn’t you read the note I wrote to you?”

“What note?” Gu Xia asked suspiciously.

“Ha ha…I gave it to you, but you didn’t even take it apart at all.” Li Jingjing smiled miserably.

‘Wait…was that?’

‘Those paper cranes? Did she write something on the paper?’ (G: Romance defeated before the denseness of the protagonist!)

‘Forget it, whether I saw it or not, the outcome was already set in stone.’

“Hey… Jingjing, you are still young, you don’t know what love is, and you will come to know later.”

“Let’s go! I’ll take you back.”

Li Jingjing stepped back, shaking her head constantly and said while crying, “No need, I know how to go back.”

Li Jingjing had never imagined that it had always been her wishful thinking, and that her long-awaited dreams would just end up being dreams. She felt her heart getting cold, colder than all the snowflakes.

“Come on, I’ll take you home.”

Gu Xia grabbed Li Jingjing’s arm with a sullen face, and went to the side of the road, preparing to call a taxi to take her home. Otherwise, in her current state, if something happened, what would he do?

“Let me go! Why do you care if I don’t go home? Who are you to me?” Li Jingjing shouted, she wanted to get rid of Gu Xia’s hand, but she couldn’t.

Gu Xia pulled her into a taxi without saying a word. After getting into the car, Gu Xia told the taxi driver the location, and then leaned back on the seat. He looked at Li Jingjing, who was bowing her head, her expression covered by her hair.

‘Haah!’

Gu Xia sighed in his heart, ‘This is really bad!’

Old Xue’s song came from the barber shop outside the university:

“The snow is so cold and so hurtful

It reflects my scars deep within

That love in the dead of night

It secretly compels my heart

Reminds me my love for you

Like a quiet melody

It slowly eats my heart

In love with you I lost myself

A love so earnest, love so deep

But I still heard you say it’s impossible…” 

(G: “Hurtful Snow” is a song written, composed and sung by Xue Zhiqian.)

Gu Xia started to hate this barbershop. ‘Don’t you have nothing else to do than playing some songs on the stereo at the entrance? And why don’t you play some happy songs, why are you playing such a sad song?’

Gu Xia sighed again in his heart.

Unexpectedly, the person Li Jingjing liked was actually him, so did she also like him in her previous life? It’s just that he didn’t go to the university in his previous life, and married Sisi quite early, so she didn’t get to confess.

‘After this girl goes to the university, will she jump off the building to commit suicide after being hurt by a scumbag, like her previous life?’

Thinking of this, Gu Xia’s mood became more and more irritated, and he didn’t know how to make Li Jingjing see the light.

When he was first reborn, when he didn’t know that Tu Sisi was also reborn, he really thought about chasing girls everywhere like the protagonists in those novels, but…

These were things that were better left in thoughts!

No one spoke along the way.

At the door of Gu Xia’s house.

After watching the silent Li Jingjing open the door and go home, Gu Xia breathed a sigh of relief, and then opened the door of his own house. Everyone in the family had fallen asleep. Gu Xia silently entered, and fortunately he didn’t wake up his parents.

Back in his room, Gu Xia’s heart was still a little irritable. He called Tu Sisi and wanted to talk to her, but her phone was turned off.

Gu Xia threw the phone on the bed, then undressed and dug into the quilt.

Gu Xia looked at the dark bed and sighed, “What a bad day!”


Goblin: Whoooh…that was quite the feel. But I must say that the protagonist did the right thing.
