Pang at the front desk was surprised.

Xu Xu: “Have the classes for the next few days been taken care of?”


Xiao Pang hurriedly nodded.
“Yes yes, they’ve all been informed and rescheduled to next month.
Aside from a Ms.
Zhang who returned her year pass in dissatisfaction, the other parents all expressed understanding.”

Xu Xu studied dance in university and opened a teaching institute with some classmates after graduation.
Five years later, they had gained some fame and reputation in their city.

After confirming some details with the construction crew, Xu Xu made a trip to the antiques market.

When the ex-girlfriend came and made a fuss, a vase that she really liked was broken.
If not for this, Xu Xu might not have the desire to deal with a girl like that.

The antiques market on Saturday was packed.

Xu Xu wore a light green windbreaker, walking down the side of the street in high heels.
She looked into every shop.

It was soon noon and except for the woven red string bracelet on her wrist, her hands were empty.

As a person involved in the arts, Xu Xu had always had a relaxed mindset when it came to buying things.

It was good, of course, if she encountered something she liked, but if she did not, their fate had simply not come yet.

She raised her head to look at the sun and decided to look at one more shop.

Coincidentally, as soon as she stopped over the threshold, her eyes landed, in front of the counter, on the white jade porcelain in the man’s hands.

At two fingers long and its mouth small, round, and exquisite, it was perfect for exhibiting her flower arrangements.


Xu Xu unconsciously took two steps closer.

The man paid and turned around.
His elbow unexpectedly bumped her shoulder with significant force.
Xu Xu stumbled.
Her heel caught on the wooden threshold and she fell backwards.

Her arm was gripped by a swath of warmth.
It firmly held her arm through a layer of fabric and helped her upright.

“Are you okay?”

The voice that came from over her head was deep and pleasant to the ear.

Xu Xu, having experienced a case of false panic, raised her head amidst heart palpitations and unexpectedly ran into a pair of deep eyes.

This man was kind of handsome.

Xu Xu exclaimed in her heart.
She expressionlessly straightened herself and took half a step back.
“I’m okay.”

The man stared at her ankle for a moment, his eyebrows slightly furrowed.
“Did you twist your ankle?”

Xu Xu was about to shake her head, but suddenly thought of something and hesitantly nodded.
“A little.”

The man said, “I’ll send you to the hospital?”

“No need…” Xu Xu’s eyes looked away for a moment and she pointed at his left hand.
“That, can you let me have that? Just take it as… compensation.”


The man was silent.

Xu Xu spoke again, “I’ll ask the price you bought it for, the number is up to you.”

The young man in a black magua2 behind the counter looked at the two of them.
Just as he was about to speak, the man nodded, “Since Miss likes it, then I’ll let you have it for the original price.”

Xu Xu perked up.
“How much?”


Xu Xu was afraid he would take back the offer and quickly took out her phone to pay.

When adding his WeChat, Xu Xu glanced at his profile.
His profile picture was the letter L against a black background, the same as his nickname.

Watching the man’s tall and straight back disappear into the crowd, she thought, this man has a pretty good temper.
