Fu Yixiao was surprised that the Royal Elites was intimidated to the point of issuing her a challenge during the first day of school. Is it because of the fight she had in the assembly hall? or is there a reason that she isn't aware of? She had thrown the dice but couldn't make a solid conclusion.
In the end, she decided that they should retire for the day, bringing a momentary paused to everything. No one refused for they were really exhausted both mentally and pysically.
They bid goodnight to each other before walking to their rooms which were spread north, south, east, and west; a design that granted them privacy. Fu Yixiao's room was located in the south with a mountain view. She was satisfied with the arrangement for compared to others, her room had the most privacy.
Fu Yixiao was preparing the bed when her phone which was charging rang. She peeked on the screen and noticed that it was an unknown number. Feeling suspicious, she ignored the call and proceeded with the task at hand. Still, the ringing persisted which made her curse at the caller the moment the call was connected.
"Miss Fu Yixiao, you sure are lively," A deep frown appeared on Fu Yixiao's face after listening to the caller's voice. She recognized that voice which belonged to Gui Jin.
"Why are you calling me in the middle of the night? I'm sleepy," She said and pretended to yawn. Well, she was indeed sleepy so there was nothing wrong by faking a yawn.
"I call you because I miss you. Do you miss me?" Fu Yixiao almost fell from the bed after listening to his shameful answer. This man always managed to make her caught off guard. What with the sudden affection? And he actually asked whether she missed him or not?
"I don't. If there's nothing else..."
"There's something else," The sudden interjection startled her. His voice was so serious she thought that there was a major thing he wanted to tell.
"Do you like the dormitory?"
His question had cleared one of the things that had clouded her thoughts. "It was you? You're behind the arrangement of our dormitory," She stated. However, there should be a reason why he did it and she wanted to know about it.
"Do you know that this arrangement will bring upon the disaster to my class? Why?" She asked; pressing him on purpose.
"Hmm, you don't like it?" and he somehow deterred the course of their conversation. Fu Yixiao knew from the way he talked that he wanted to avoid the subject.
"Thanks for the arrangement but Master Gui Jin, I don't need your interference. I don't want anything like this to happen again," She was a little bit annoyed because the way she saw it, Gui Jin seemed to treat her like some damsel in distress.
"Hmm, you need to understand one thing Miss Fu, I help you because I'm your future fiancee. I don't like it when you are in a bad situation," Gui Jin said it so effortlessly. Hearing him spouting that she was his future fiancee made Fu Yixiao almost puke in anger. She had no idea where his confidence came from. Did her grandfather make some sort of promise with him? Fu Yixiao hated that idea. Being tied to someone was the last thing in her mind right now.
"You're delusional. If you want to help me then help me by doing nothing. Keep your concern to yourself. You better go and look after my grandfather than worrying about me!" After saying her piece, she ended the phone call. She sat meditatively to calm her turbulent mind before laying on the bed.
The moment she found her comfort zone, her phone rang again. She didn't bother to check the caller ID thinking that it was Gui Jin who was calling her. Grumpy, she reached for her phone which she placed on the bedside table.
"Stop calling me, I need my sleep!" She scolded him the moment the call was connected. Silence. Hmm, did she scare the man? Fu Yixiao thought.
"Who's been calling you?" It wasn't Gui Jin. Fu Yixiao instantly checked the caller ID and her eyes widened to see Wu Zhaoyi's name. She was sobered from the sleepiness she felt earlier.
"It's you," She confirmed and the man just replied with some inaudible voice.
"Who made you angry?" Fu Yixiao fiddled with the blanket covering her lower body. She was surprised to receive a call from him but was lazy to answer his question. She asked the reason for his call only to feel her body stiffened from the silence on the other side of the phone. Why does she feel that Wu Zhaoyi is angry?
"Wu..." She tried to break the silence but he had spoken earlier than her.
"How was your first day?" He asked. His voice was restrained like he was hiding a bigger emotion beyond the multitude of concern.
"It was quite interesting," Fu Yixiao replied. She felt like she needed to tell her story to appease his anger.
"Hmm, it was indeed interesting. For you to be challenged in the first day is really unprecedented," Fu Yixiao frowned upon listening to his response. How did he know? She was planning to tell him but he seemed to already know?
"How did you know? Did you spy on me?" Fu Yixiao jumped to interrogate him and this caused Wu Zhaoyi to laugh at her query.
"If I don't know this much of information how will I be able to protect you? Now that we knew each other's identity, your safety is my priority," A determination came from the manly voice of his. It made Fu Yixiao smile at his thoughtfulness.
"That's good. So, you should know that I'm really sleepy right? So, can we talk later?" She said. The truth was she had a lot to ask him but he seemed to be a bit moody tonight. And she needed to replenish his energy for an upcoming battle.
"Alright, you should sleep. Goodnight," He sounded disappointed. Fu Yixiao who was oblivious to his frustration was about to end the call when Wu Zhaoyi's nervous voice once again invaded her ears.
"Tch," She couldn't help but groan. Why was he so unpredictable tonight? She inwardly complained.
"Sorry, but is it okay for me to chat or call you? Like on a daily basis," Fu Yixiao was dumbfounded. She thought that he had something more important to say but this? Why must he asked for permission?
"Can't I?" Persistent. Fu Yixiao bitted her bottom lip not sure how to feel about Wu Zhaoyi earnest questions.
"Suit yourself," She replied shortly after. "Thanks. Goodnight!" Wu Zhaoyi immediately ended the call. However, one could tell that he was really happy to receive such an answer.
Speechless, Fu Yixiao slumped her petite body on the mattress. Tossing left and right before she fell asleep.
Thanks for the support.
I'm working hard to give you a mass release.
Hopefully, life is kind to me. hehe...
