Her Little Dimples

4.2

A Chance Encounter

1



Traffic flowed around her as the sky darkened. The city's lights gradually came on, and the air was filled with the scent of roses and gardenias.


It was Friday night, and the streets were bustling.


Xu You was carrying bags in both hands, filled with toiletries and snacks she had just bought from the supermarket.


Shortly after school let out in the afternoon, she was dragged out by Chen Xiaozha to go shopping at Walmart. The two of them also had dinner outside.


Now, feeling a bit bloated, she decided to walk back to school to help digest the food.


"There are so many people today," Chen Xiaozha said, linking arms with Xu You as they walked along the road. "Finally, it's the weekend. When I get back to the dorm, I'm going to catch up on all the shows I haven't finished."


Xu You glanced at her face. "The midterms are coming up soon. Aren't you going to study?"


"Who cares about reviewing? My parents don't care about my grades anyway,"


Chen Xiaozha muttered, texting on her phone, unaware of the black SUV slowly pulling up beside them.


A quick honk sounded.


Xu You paused, subconsciously turning to look at the source of the sound.


The black-tinted windows of the SUV rolled down, both front and back.


Fu Xueli leaned against the edge of the car, half of her body out, waving at them with a smile, "What a coincidence, kids! Where are you and your friend heading? Let us give you a ride."


Chen Xiaozha's mouth formed a small 'o.'


This couldn't be... it couldn't be…


Those people from Class 9…


Xie Ci rested one hand on the steering wheel, elbow on the windowsill, staring straight at them.


The evening breeze blew gently, carrying the warmth of the summer night.


Xu You snapped out of her thoughts.


She replied, "No need to trouble yourselves, thank you."


"Don't be like that." Fu Xueli pretended to push open the car door to get out.


Xu You took two steps back, raising what she had in her hand, and said seriously, "It's not heavy. My friend and I just finished dinner and are taking a walk."


She was actually afraid that Xie Ci would drive.


He's underage, right? Driving without a license is really dangerous.


Her long hair was loosely tied behind her head. Wearing a white short-sleeved school uniform, she stood not far from the streetlight, exuding a gentle and soft temperament.


Inside the car,


Li Jieyi sat in the front passenger seat, leaning back to look at Kate, and casually asked, "Who's that person? I don't think I've seen them at school. Do you know them?"


Xie Ci glanced in the rearview mirror and then looked ahead, tapping the steering wheel with his fingers intermittently. "Ah, she's Fu Xueli's desk mate from our class."


"Does she have a boyfriend?" Li Jieyi asked curiously.


Fu Xueli exploded at the question and glared at him. "She's a good student, mind your own business."


The message was clear: he should stay away from Xu You.


"What's wrong with being a good student? Ask A Ci, how many good students has he dated?" Li Jieyi smirked.


Rolling her eyes, Fu Xueli retorted, "She's different from those fake innocent girls. She's genuinely naive. If you dare touch my desk mate, I'll have someone deal with you, believe it or not."


Seeing her protective stance, Song Yifan, sitting beside them, was puzzled.


"Is Xu You your long-lost sister? You've only been together for a few days, and suddenly she's 'naive.' How long have you and Big Pear (referring to Fu Xueli) known each other? Your relationship is already so good?"


"No," Fu Xueli said solemnly, "I just really like people who are good at studying and are also really nice."


"And," she turned to look at Song Yifan, "don't you think she's especially cute? Her temper is also super good. I think neither of you are worthy of such a good girl."


Indeed.


Xu You carries a kind of soft and tranquil temperament that she feels she may never possess in this lifetime.


It's very likable.


A brief silence followed.


Xie Ci snorted, tilted his head, and glanced out the window.


After bidding farewell to Xu You and Fu Xueli, he had already driven off.


With a frustrated grunt, he stepped hard on the gas pedal, and the car shot out a long way.
