Chapter 57: Cannon fodder counterattacking the indifferent campus king (Part 29)
It was already six at night when they reached Aurora City and the sky was gradually becoming dark, but Aurora City was a completely different scene.
Each house was hanging a coloured lantern that clashed with the dark red sky, forming a colourful landscape.
“So beautiful, it’s just like the Milky Way.” This was the first impression Luo Qing Chen had when she saw Aurora City.
“Wait for me, I’ll buy something to eat.” Su Liang Chen slowly got up and headed to the food stall across the street.
When there was more food around you, you would feel more hungry.
Luo Qing Chen watched his back as her lips curled into a bright smile. She looked up slightly at the ever changing beautiful stars decorating the night.
Mysterious and illusory. It was the mysterious night of Aurora City, attracting countless longing eyes.
Suddenly she heard a song: I’ll take you to see the night sky on Sunday, alright?
It was Sunday night, at six thirty.
Su Liang Chen ordered some of the more famous dishes of Aurora City: Malatang, roasted skewers, coconut jelly, chicken wings with rice, bean sprout pancake, as well as two special bowls of iced fruit rice.
When he came back, he moved a bit faster.
It was almost seven, she must be hungry!
But he never thought when he came back to the beach, Luo Qing Chen would be gone.
He unconsciously dialed her phone and after a few seconds, he heard: The number you have dialed cannot be reached at this time, please try again later……
He was a bit worried, so he kept calling!
Based on how she looked, she shouldn’t have come to Aurora City before. It was all his fault, he should not have left her alone when he went to buy things.
After failing to call three times, his heart felt like it was being burned. Looking at his watch, it was already past seven.
Because of the fireworks show at the beach, the area around him was a bit noisy.
He knitted his brows and looked around, while listening carefully.
There were kids playing, students chatting, and a couple fighting, but there wasn’t a single sound from her…..
Not hearing her voice suddenly, he felt his heart become flustered and filled with fear. So feeling fear after losing a person was this kind of feeling.
Su Liang Chen took a deep breath and clenched his fist.
He made his decision, he would go to the police.
When he was about to dial his phone, Luo Qing Chen patted his shoulder and said, “What food did you buy?”
His shoulders trembled and he quickly hung up. He turned around to pull her into his embrace and tightly hugged her.
Luo Qing Chen was stunned as her eyes popped out and her heart almost jumped out.
Being this close, she could smell the faint lemongrass soap coming from him. Her breathing became fast and she became warm from the hug.
After a while, he finally let her go. He looked over her before saying, “Where did you go?”
Luo Qing Chen touched her red ear awkwardly and said, “Just now…..there was an old lady who asked me for directions. I saw that she was holding quite a few things, so I went to help her……”
“You’re sure you didn’t just wander off further away?” Su Liang Chen said with knitted brows.
This girl clearly came to Aurora City for the first time and she was showing someone the way. It wasn’t wrong to have good intentions, but we had to know our limits.
“How did you know!?” Luo Qing Chen’s eyes lit up, but then she said without any energy, “I thought that I could find it with my cell phone, but who knew there were so many small roads here? The more I wandered, the further I got!”
Seeing her looking aggrieved with her head down, he couldn’t bear to blame her.
Doing something good and still being blamed, she must be feeling bad.
Su Liang Chen raised his hand and patted her head as he said, “Wait for me to come back next time, alright?”
“Peng!” The firework cut through the starry night, looking incredibly beautiful.
“Alright.” She obediently nodded with a faint smile on her lips.
