To avoid that from happening again, Qiao Anhao bought a one-hundred-and-eighty-centimeter teddy the next day to put between them in bed.
That way, she wouldn't have to be so nervous around him every night that she couldn't fall asleep.
The only source of light in the room was a pale-yellow light from the night light. It was hard to see anything, so their listening skills were unusually sensitive.
Qiao Anhao could clearly hear Lu Jinnian as he occasionally tapped his phone, producing a soft sound.
After some time, he locked his phone, slipping the room into complete silence. It was so quiet that she could hear his every breath.
Qiao Anhao laid on one side of the bear with both eyes shut but she wasn't able to fall asleep. She could clearly smell the fresh scent coming from Lu Jinnian, which made her heart tremble.
Last night, at 'To the End of Time' dinner party, Zhao Meng was right. They were never like this in the past. Back in school, Lu Jinnian was generally quite close to the guys, but he would avoid girls at all costs. And at that time, she was one of the few girls that were on speaking terms with him.
Naturally, the only reason why she was able to even talk to him was because of Xu Jiamu; not because she was special or anything.
The Xu family and Qiao family were very close, and she had grown up with Xu Jiamu. Lu Jinnian was Xu Jiamu's half brother of the same father, which meant that Lu Jinnian was the legitimate son of the Xu family.
Not affected by the problems from the previous generation, Lu Jinnian and Xu Jiamu had a close relationship and got along well together.
Qiao Anhao was one of few girls that spoke with Lu Jinnian because of Xu Jiamu.
However, they were only on talking terms which primarily consisted of greetings out of courtesy such as "Hello" and "Good bye" .
Back when she was younger, without so much worries, she would always actively pursue her love. Even though she wasn't the kind of girl who could daringly confess to a guy, write love letters, or deliver chocolates at Valentine's, she would secretly look for him. Occasionally, in the school field or on the way home, she would catch up to him, greeting him casually while suppressing her feelings. He would either reply with a greeting or just nod his head, but that was enough to leave her basking in happiness.
More than once she had dreamed of a future with him, but she could never muster enough courage to confess. As such, their lukewarm relationship persisted, while her feelings hidden deep within her heart grew each day.
After she entered university, for a reason she did not know, Lu Jinnian started to treat her with hatred and disdain.
Initially, she had thought she was too sensitive because of the love she harbored.
Qiao Anhao was in too much of a hurry to lie down, so she was a little uncomfortable with her sleeping positon. However, she didn't dare make any sudden movements. All she could was carefully change positions. But even so, it would still disturb Lu Jinnian who was on the other side of the bear. He suddenly flipped over brazenly, leaving Qiao Anhao completely terrified to move.
It seemed like Lu Jinnian was in a terrible mood, like something was troubling him. Every so often, he would turn around.
Qiao Anhao's full attention was drawn to Lu Jinnian and simply couldn't fall asleep.
All of a sudden, he removed the covers and abruptly sat up. This frightened Qiao Anhao so much so that her heart shuddered nervously.
