After finishing his meal, Lu Jiaye decided to suggest a new place to go to. “It’s still early, how about going for some karaoke? Lord Lu will treat you.”
Before Gu Siyi could respond, Xia Zhijun took initiative. “I want to take Gu Siyi to buy a book, so you guys can go without us.”
Lu Jiaye didn’t seem happy about that. “What kind of book do you want? I’ll talk about it next time. Don’t give me a treat and don’t save face.”
“Don’t be disappointed” Zheng Peipei jumped in. “Let’s go together.”
“I need it to learn,” said Gu Siyi. “I need it urgently.”
After saying their goodbyes, the two parted ways with the main force.
Gu Siyi followed Xia Zhijun. After eating and drinking, she was in a good mood. “What book are you taking me to buy? Is it a super easy-to-use tutorial book?”
Xia Zhijun didn’t answer, he walked outside a self-service bank, and said, “Just wait for me for a little.”
“Oh.” Gu Siyi stood still obediently.
After a while, Xia Zhijun walked out with four thousand yuan in hand and gave it to her, “This is the four thousand for Lu Ming to return to you.”
Gu Siyi instantly raised her hands to refuse, “I have money! Don’t worry!”
“Where did you get the money? Did you make it clear to your parents or deduct your own living expenses?”
“I didn’t tell them.,” Gu Siyi murmured. “I thought it would be better not to tell my parents about this and make them worry even more.”
“Then you’re deducting from your living expenses?”
“Yes… Next month’s living expenses, in addition to borrowing some from Zheng Peipei and the others….” Gu Siyi felt like she had to explain under the pressure of his gaze.
“You might as well borrow them from me. I have enough spare money.” Xia Zhijun took Gu Siyi’s hand and put the money in her hand.
She was lost for words when he started her dead in the eye.
“Didn’t you say that I’m your best friend? Would you rather borrow from the others or your best friend?”
“Nah….” she said quietly.
“Nah what?” Xia Zhijun asked, staring at her. One hand grasped her hand and pressed the money, the other hand lifted up and pinched her earlobe. Gu Siyi was surprised.
While kneading, he slowly said, “I’m not the person you have the best relationship with anymore? Huh?”
“…” Gu Siyi was flustered, her ears were hot, and her palms were hot. She felt as if she was firmly controlled by Xia Zhijun, nailed to the spot, unable to move.

She buried her head like a quail, and under the streetlamp, he saw her pink earlobes and a white neck.
Xia Zhijun’s Adam’s apple twitched, he looked away and restrained the inexplicable desire for action.
He suddenly let go of her hand, and Gu Siyi subconsciously held the stack of money so as to not let it fall.
Xia Zhijun took a step back, turned around, and put his hands in his pockets. “If I’m still the person you have the best relationship with, you will take the money.” The tone was faint, without intimidation, or force. But the calm tone made Gu Siyi feel uncomfortable.
She ran forward to follow his pace. “You are.”
Xia Zhijun did not stop and continued to move forward. Gu Siyi walked quickly to follow him, feeling a little confused and afraid that he would be unhappy, afraid that he would alienate her in the future, afraid that she would become a passerby like everyone else….
In just a few seconds, Gu Siyi couldn’t bear it anymore, and she blurted out, “Okay, okay, I’ll take it, thank you! I will try to pay you back as soon as possible!”
Xia Zhijun stopped, looked at her, and said, “I’m not short of money. You can take your time, as long as you have enough money to graduate from high school.”
“…” Gu Siyi was finally relieved. She put the stack of money into the small pocket of her shoulder bag and zipped it up. When she looked up at Xia Zhijun again, she found that his eyes were gentle.
“What kind of tutoring book are you taking me to buy?” she asked.
Gu Siyi was really looking forward to Xia Zhijun taking her to buy a few high-quality tutorial books before the mid-term exams..
“Those tutorial books are all cheating money, so I’ll write down whatever you need.”
“…” But didn’t you just say you’re taking me to buy a book?
Xia Zhijun saw the doubt in her eyes and said indifferently, “I just brought you here to give you the money, let’s go back to school.”
“Oh… I was happy for nothing.”
“Wait, I’ll compile a workbook for you.” Xia Zhijun raised his hand and pressed the back of her head. He couldn’t see her head down.
Gu Siyi certainly didn’t doubt Xia Zhijun’s ability to write questions, but how troublesome was this?
