Chapter 7: Girlfriend [Lu Teng]

Lu Teng sent Xu Xu home.
When they arrived downstairs, he stared at the corridor for a while.

“What is it?”

Lu Teng lifted a finger and pointed at the space next to the flowers.
“Three days ago, over there, I was still a rejected blind date candidate.
Coming back today, I suddenly think of it and feel a little regret.

“What do you regret?”

“I regret that I wasted two days’ time…” Lu Teng unbuckled his seatbelt, leaned over, and kissed her lightly on the forehead.
His eyes deepened.
“… in doing this.”


Xu Xu’s eyelashes faintly trembled, she silently met his gaze.

Lu Teng reached out and touched her ear lobe, his voice hoarse, “My lawful right, you’re not opposed to it, right?”

Xu Xu lowered her eyes and shook her head.

Outside the car, it was early evening.
Fuzzy yellow lights on both sides lined up to form a ribbon of light.

Lu Teng massaged the area between his brows, pressing down the impulse at the bottom of his heart.
He turned the steering wheel and merged onto the highway, driving directly toward Chengxi.

Not two minutes later, a phone call suddenly came.

Seeing the caller ID, his brows rose.


“Lu Teng, have you gotten off the plane?” Her voice carried a softness like down from far away.

“I just got on the highway.
What’s wrong?”

“Are you tired?”


The other side was silent for a bit, then said, “The Avengers premiere is today, I happen to have two tickets.
Do… you want to go together?”


Lu Teng very much suspected whether she could fully repeat the full movie title.

He smiled: “Okay, I’ll be at your place in half an hour.”

When Xu Xu got in the car, Lu Teng noticed she wore a knee-length white sailor style dress with her fine soft hair draped across her shoulders.
She looked like a college student.

He calmly took off his suit jacket, then unbuttoned his cuffs and casually rolled them up twice.

If his sweatshirt wasn’t left at home, he would change outfits on the spot.

Xu Xu thought it weird.
“Are you feeling hot?”

Lu Teng nodded.
“A little.”

Xu Xu answered with an oh and stopped talking.

Light coming in from the window flitted by, shining on the momentary silence in the car.

Lu Teng spoke.
“What have you been doing these days?”

“Nothing special.”

Then, it became quiet again.

Lu Teng couldn’t help laughing.

Xu Xu: “…What are you laughing at?”

“I’ve found that you don’t seem to have a save function, it’s like the monster that I painstakingly beat halfway suddenly regenerated its health.”

Xu Xu took a while before she understood what he meant.
She was silent for a bit, then turned to look at him.
“So the monster has sent itself to you, allowing you to hit it as you please.”


Xu Xu bought lovers seats near the back.
When the two went in holding popcorn, the seats around them were already filled with people and the theater filled with noisy excitement.

The two of them, one behind the other, squeezed through until they reached their seats and both exhaled in relief.

There was still half an hour before the movie started.
Xu Xu went on her phone the moment she sat down.
Lu Teng glanced over and discovered that it was an article pushed by an official account: <<Watching Avengers 3 with your boyfriend? Cram this knowledge first!>>

Lu Teng did his best not to laugh.
“Have you not seen a single one of the movies?”

Xu Xu looked around, she leaned over.
“Lower your voice, I heard fake Marvel fans will be beaten.”

“Then why are you taking part in the excitement?”

“Your cousin said you really wanted to watch the premiere.”

Lu Teng: “…”

How did the two of them get to talking?

“It’s okay, I can tell you about it later.”

Xu Xu waved her hand with a stern face.
“No, we’ll be beaten.
I’ll just watch Benedict Cumberbatch and Tom Hiddleston.”

Lu Teng: “…”

She sure knows the handsome guys well.


Two and a half hours later, a group of Marvel fans drifted out of the cinema with weak yet satisfied smiles on their faces.

Xu Xu watched the Easter egg, wishing for more.
“Even though I’m a little lost, it was still pretty good.
I’m a little regretful that I didn’t get into this earlier.”

Lu Teng laughed.
“I’ll make a list of movies for you when I get back.”

Xu Xu nodded.
She moved her legs and discovered they were a bit numb.
“Let’s leave.”

Lu Teng stopped her.
“Wait a moment.”

“Is there another Easter egg? But they’ve all left.”

Lu Teng didn’t speak, looking very profound.

Xu Xu sat down in the seat, a little curious.

Five minutes later, the lights overhead all went out with a snap.

She was frightened and subconsciously clutched Lu Teng’s arm.

A hand held her chin in the dark, and a black figure carrying warmth came over, slowly meeting her faintly trembling lips.
