Chapter 1 – She was too famous

She was probably awakened by thirst.

Upon waking up, Xi Ning immediately felt an unbearable dryness in her throat.
This feeling was not good, especially when she opened her eyes and found that the bedroom was still pitch black.

Xi Ning reached for her phone on the pillow, and the fingerprint sensor on the side button made a slight mechanical sound.
The screen suddenly lit up, which was particularly dazzling in the thick darkness, causing her to squint.

The time was 00:30.
For someone who was used to going to bed at ten and waking up at six even on weekends, waking up at this time was simply “going against the norm”.

After struggling on the soft bed for two seconds, Xi Ning opened the bedside lamp with a bit of resentment, lifted the quilt, put on her slippers, and opened the door to the room.

Half-squinting, maintaining a half-asleep and half-awake feeling, she walked forward in a daze.
However, when she passed through the corridor, the light in the living room instantly dispelled most of her sleepiness.

When she saw the busy figure at the kitchen counter, she was completely awake.

Something was baking in the oven, there were several lumps of dough-like things on the table, as well as some molds, and a plate of oddly shaped cookies that looked like they were already burnt.

“What are you doing?” Xi Ning crossed her arms and raised her eyebrows incredulously.

Was she dreaming? Her lazy brother, who would wait until he had enough socks to wash for four days, was making cookies in the kitchen in the middle of the night.

As siblings, she didn’t remember him liking sweets, let alone getting up in the middle of the night to make them himself.

“Ding!” There was a crisp sound, and the figure was startled, the mold in his hand fell into the plate, and he turned around suddenly.
After seeing Xi Ning’s face, he visibly breathed a sigh of relief.

“Sis, why aren’t you sleeping in the middle of the night? You scared me!”

He lowered his voice, sneaked a peek at their parents’ room, saw that there was no movement, and then relaxed.
“Keep your voice down, I waited until the middle of the night specifically so as not to disturb our parents.”

Xi Ning looked at her younger brother’s small white face, walked to the cabinet, took out a mug, and poured herself a glass of water from the water dispenser.

“So what are you doing in the middle of the night making snacks?”

She cleared her throat after taking a few sips of water.

Xi Mu stood behind the dining table, suddenly his eyes lit up, and he hurriedly picked up a piece of baked cookie, and smiled as he approached her, “You came just in time, help me taste this, will girls like it?”


Xi Ning had a vague guess, and looked at the round “unidentifiable object” that was burnt or originally black, and turned her face away in disgust.
“Make sure it’s edible first.”

“Ah? It seems like it’s a failure.” Xi Mu put down the cookie disappointedly, paused for a moment, and then took a few bites of the cookie himself.
He pursed his lips and suddenly blushed, and even a visible blush appeared on his face.

In the middle of the night, it was enough to give someone goosebumps.

Putting down the mug in her hand, Xi Ning couldn’t help but look him up and down.

Xi Mu, her twin brother who was born just a few minutes later than her, was a sophomore in high school, 188 cm tall, inheriting the family’s tall and cold white skin.
He had a narrow waist, long legs, and a small white face with red lips and white teeth.
Coupled with those peach blossom eyes that were very charming when he smiled, he had received countless love letters since childhood.

It was the first time she had seen him go to such lengths, getting up in the middle of the night just to make cookies for a girl.


Xi Ning finished her last sip of water, put down her cup, and got up to go back to her room to sleep.

She wasn’t interested in Xi Mu’s love life at all.

But Xi Mu stopped her: “Hey, sis, aren’t you curious about who these cookies are for?”

It didn’t matter who they were for, as long as she wasn’t the one being poisoned.

But seeing his persistent attitude, Xi Ning lazily sat back down in her chair and asked, “Oh, who?”

Xi Mu scratched his messy hair, looking embarrassed.
“Actually, there’s nothing I can’t say.
She’s in the same class as you, and I was hoping you could help me out.”

So that was his plan.

Xi Ning propped up her chin, her loose pajama sleeve sliding down to reveal her fair and slender wrist.
She half-closed her eyes and said casually, “Do you still need help?”

Although Xi Mu wasn’t very good at academics and had little talent, his handsome face was very attractive during his hormone-fueled teenage years.
In theory, it should be easier for him to pursue someone.

But seeing him like this, the other person was difficult to deal with.
There were two possibilities: either the other person was much better than him, or the other person saw through his “handsome fool” facade and wasn’t interested in his type.

Xi Mu blushed even more.
“She… she’s very outstanding.
According to Chen Gou, she’s the most beautiful girl in your class.”

Xi Ning finally couldn’t help but roll her eyes.

“Do you know Kong Nianxi? Are you familiar with her?” Xi Mu tugged at his clothes, looking like a little wife.
The name was so sacred that it seemed to take a lot of effort just to say it out loud.

But when Xi Ning heard those three words, she frowned uncomfortably.

How could they be familiar? Not only were they not familiar, but she was also the only classmate she had never communicated with.

Not that Xi Ning had any hostility or bias towards Kong Nianxi, but perhaps their auras didn’t match.
Xi Ning always felt that she and Kong Nianxi were not from the same world, and in fact, they weren’t.

Kong Nianxi…

She was too famous.
Even though Xi Ning didn’t like paying attention to these exaggerated rumors, she always heard gossip from Tu Xiaoyuan.

For example…

It was rumored that she changed boyfriends every week as if she was changing clothes;

It was said that some bad boys from other schools had approached her and waited for her at the school gate for a week, but she didn’t respond;

Some people said that two boys fought over her outside of school.

And so on.

She may be the girl who is very popular among boys, beautiful to the point of being dangerous, or she may be the green tea social butterfly who is complex and good at fishing people in the eyes of some people.

However, rumors are true and false, and when there are too many people spreading
