Chapter 823: You will be Very Bored, Uncle
The next day, at half past six in the evening, Ku Jie parked his car in the underground parking lot and followed the address on the coupon as he headed to the third floor of the mall.
It was a parent-child area, and there were some stationery stores around. There were also some children&x2019;s clothing stores.
Ku Jie was wearing a gray coat as he stood at the elevator entrance on the third floor, and looked at the red figure who was distributing flyers.
The both of them met eyes and it seemed that there was electricity.
Ren Xinghe quickly moved away, and then continued to distribute the flyers to promote the game city.
Such a beautiful sight suddenly appeared on the third floor, and the women around them quickly cast their eyes on Ku Jie.
Ren Xinghe seemed to have noticed it too. Before she even finished her work, she walked over to him and asked him: &x201C;Aren&x2019;t you&x2026;here to give me something?&x201D;
&x201C;I will send you to the boxing gym at 7 o&x2019;clock. I will just walk around first.&x201D;
&x201C;If you are not busy, there is also a rest area on the first floor.&x201D; Ren Xinghe reminded.
Ku Jie nodded before he waved his hand and turned around. After that, he went down the elevator again.
Ren Xinghe returned to work, as she felt the envy of her colleagues. Ren Xinghe did not explain anything to them because she was not familiar with the others.
Finally, after seven o&x2019;clock, Ren Xinghe carried her schoolbag and went downstairs.
Ku Jie was sitting in the massage chair, met her gaze, and stood up naturally.
Ren Xinghe followed Ku Jie and got on the familiar off-road vehicle. This time Ren Xinghe did not sit in the back row, but she went directly to the co-driver seat.
&x201C;You are really studying the German language? Why?&x201D; Ren Xinghe looked at Ku Jie who was throwing the books on the co-driver&x2019;s seat to the back row.
&x201C;Because I am bored.&x201D;
&x201C;Is it because you cannot tell me?&x201D;
&x201C;It&x2019;s really because I am bored.&x201D; Ku Jie said while holding the steering wheel with both hands, before looking at Ren Xinghe.
The both of them were silent for a while, and Ren Xinghe nodded as she asked, &x201C;Is a paparazzo so free?&x201D;
&x201C;I am not just a paparazzo. I have another identity too, but I don&x2019;t want to talk about it now.&x201D;
Ren Xinghe put on her seat belt, but she was not sad because of Ku Jie&x2019;s refusal. As Grandma Ren said, he was indeed frank, and even a little unlovable.
&x201C;After sending me to the boxing gym, you can just go back and work. I can go home by myself.&x201D; Ren Xinghe said. After speaking, she realized what she had just said and she looked at Ku Jie who was driving and asked, &x201C;I&x2026;is it justified for me to make this kind of requests?&x201D;
Ku Jie&x2019;s sight was always in front of her. What he was best at was to ask questions without answering her questions: &x201C;So, what about you? Do you know what you are doing? The man you are trying to get close to is eleven years older than you.&x201D;
&x201C;Actually, I am also feeling very confused. I have only known you for a short time now. Moreover, I don&x2019;t even know your name. All that I can remember is your car license plate number but I always feel that you understand me and you understand my situation. I don&x2019;t know what I want, and I don&x2019;t know what I want you to do, but I only know that I don&x2019;t want to break contact with you.
&x201C;If you didn&x2019;t send me the WeChat message last night, I don&x2019;t think that I would have said what I said today. I feel very strange and adventurous at the same time.&x201D;
&x201C;You have seen me being cautious when you were waiting outside my house, but now I feel as though I have the urge to hand you a knife, even if I know that you are a murderer.
&x201C;I think I should retract into my own shell and spend my time studying for my college entrance examination calmly and effortlessly. It is the best and only way for me to go to my favorite school, and get away from everything in Luo City.&x201D;
&x201C;I don&x2019;t know why I am even sitting here in this place and talking to you calmly. I think you are amazing. You understand me and you can touch my nerves from the very beginning. You don&x2019;t need to care what I say, and I am not even sure what kind of response I was expecting from you. So, just forget it&x2026;&x201D;
She was in a mess, and Ren Xinghe didn&x2019;t know what she wanted to express in the end.
As for Ku Jie, it was not because of magic, but because of the unique circumstances of their acquaintance.
&x201C;Wouldn&x2019;t it cause you to lose focus in your studies?&x201D;
Ren Xinghe was taken aback, because she suddenly felt that Ku Jie&x2019;s words seemed to be softer, so she replied, &x201C;As long as I don&x2019;t need to deal with that couple anymore, then I have enough energy to study.&x201D;
Very soon, the both of them arrived at the gate of the boxing gym.
Ren Xinghe was about to get out of the car with her schoolbag on her back, but Ku Jie stopped her and said, &x201C;I&x2019;m waiting for you here.&x201D;
Ren Xinghe&x2019;s eyes flickered, and she smiled suddenly as she said, &x201C;You will be very bored, uncle.&x201D;
Ku Jie looked at his German textbook in the back row: &x201C;I also have something that I need to study.&x201D;
Ren Xinghe left her school bag in the passenger seat, and she pulled out the math revision book from it and handed it to Ku Jie: &x201C;Help me to take a look at it?&x201D;
Ku Jie took it in his hand and motioned for her to close the door.
When he opened her revision book, he found that on the first page, there was a sentence written in it: &x201C;Our debts are clear, and our fate is gone.&x201D;
That should have been written by her during the ten-day period when the both of them had not been in contact with each other. It should also be said that she really decided to cut off the relationship between the two of them.
But his sudden intrusion seemed to disrupt her overall plan.
But Ku Jie also knew very well that Ren Xinghe&x2019;s feelings for him stemmed from the fact that she had hardly ever received her father&x2019;s love.
The lack of paternal love made her show goodwill to the opposite sex, and she had no such strong resistance to it.
She was like a hedgehog, as if she was out of place and close to everything around her, but in fact, anyone could touch her deep softness only by identifying her inner pain.
At eight o&x2019;clock, Ren Xinghe walked out of the boxing gym filled with sweat.
Ku Jie was reading a German book when she got in the car.
&x201C;You are actually studying.&x201D;
&x201C;I will send you home.&x201D; Ku Jie put down his book, turned off the lights, and drove Ren Xinghe through the night.
At this time, Ren Xinghe suddenly said: &x201C;Actually, you are more cold-hearted than I am. It may be because you are twelve years older than me. You are much more mature and have experienced a lot. Although sometimes my words will make you feel very touched, but you can quickly calm yourself down and returned to your original state.&x201D;
Ku Jie finished listening and took a deep breath.
This was the second time that the child was trying to test what he was feeling.
But this time, Ku Jie did not dodge, but replied: &x201C;I am an adult.&x201D;
&x201C;Then this adult, what do you plan to do with me?&x201D;
&x201C;This adult, will wait for you to finish your college entrance examination first.&x201D; Ku Jie threw the wrong revision textbook back into Ren Xinghe&x2019;s arms.
Ren Xinghe looked at the notebook in her arms, as she pouted and said, &x201C;All right.&x201D;
Along the way, the both of them did not speak any more, and the atmosphere was occasionally awkward but fortunately, Ku Jie&x2019;s sight was never on Ren Xinghe&x2019;s body. So, he couldn&x2019;t see her no matter what her expression was.
At 8:20pm, Ku Jie sent Ren Xinghe back to the courtyard, and of course stayed for dinner.
However, when Ren Xinghe brought out the bag of clothes, she found that it was all new, and some of the tags had not even been removed.
&x201C;You bought it?&x201D;
Ku Jie shook his head: &x201C;I haven&x2019;t worn it before in the past.&x201D;
Ren Xinghe didn&x2019;t know what to say. She only knew that Ku Jie&x2019;s taste in clothes were very good, but he really didn&x2019;t care much. Therefore, Ren Xinghe also kept it, especially one of the sweaters. She suddenly realized that men&x2019;s clothing was really big.
In order not to bother people, Ku Jie left the courtyard at nine o&x2019;clock.
After getting in the car, he was unsure about his relationship with Ren Xinghe and he did not know about their boundaries, but he wouldn&x2019;t need to worry about it as long as he could see her.
