’s a girl.” Xu Chuan ran over to his side. 

“Mhm, I think so too.” Kou Chen nodded.

Their footsteps were light, and they looked small and dainty, at least two sizes smaller than the coat they wore.
Although he couldn’t see clearly, he felt like they had long hair.

“A girl?” Wei Chaoren was shocked, “A girl is this brave?”

I’m staying right here.
Don’t go back to the dorms if you dare.” Kou Chen stared at the other side of the field unflinchingly. 

Xu Chuan felt a bit bored.
As he was about to go pat him, he suddenly ducked to the ground, scooching over to the side: “Fuck, security, get down! Are you two blind?”

Xu Chuan and Wei Chaoren ducked as well, scooching over with him.


They looked extremely stupid as they hopped along on the floor with their arms around their knees.
Xu Chuan would normally rather die than move in such a position, but Kou Chen started it, and Wei Chaoren moved surprisingly fast like that, so he somehow ended up following their lead.

Almost at the wall, Kou Chen started laughing. 

Xu Chuan suddenly realized, glancing at the field.
There wasn’t even any security guard.
He leaped up and aimed a kick at Kou Chen’s ass.
“How fucking bored are you?!”

Kou Chen was still laughing as he wiped away the tears: “Come on, life is so hard, can’t even catch the person I’ve been trying to catch.
I gotta find fun somewhere.”

“At least we gained something.” Wei Chaoren remained squatting on the floor hugging his knees.
“At least we know it’s a girl, a dainty one.”


“A girl?” Huo Ran was shocked.

That piece of information completely made him forget about the gloominess of having to go to the teacher’s office twice right when school started.

“A girl is alone roasting sausages in the haunted building?” Xu Zhifan repeated.
“Why do I feel like it’s a joke?”

“I’m serious.” Xu Chuan said.
“Behind the skylight, there were burn marks on the floor.
When we went back, there was half a sausage in the ashes.” 

“You guys ate it?” Huo Ran asked.

“Nope.” Kou Chen looked at him.
“Saved it for you.”

“How do you know it was from that girl? I thought you guys didn’t see the fire?” Huo Ran obviously had his doubts.

“The fire was out when we went,” Xu Chuan said.
“But the ash hadn’t been blown away yet.
It’s pretty windy these days, if you go now, I bet it’s all gone.” 

“How strange.” Hu Ran didn’t really believe Kou Chen, but he could believe Xu Chuan’s words.
“How hungry does she have to be to cook in the haunted building…”

“It was a proper sausage too,” Wei Chaoren said.
“Not a hot dog sausage, a proper sausage.
The ones you have to cook first.
Much more tasty than hot dog sausages.
The ones my family makes are even better, though Kou Chen’s doesn’t count.
He makes them himself, and he had me try one, it was like chewing a sock…”

Huo Ran and the others were all shocked at that, not because of the sock flavoured sausages, and not because Wei Chaoren made it sound like he knew what socks tasted like…

“Someone like you who had so many people out for you that you had to transfer, knows how to make sausages?” Huo Ran said. 

“Who’s out for him, his sister?” Wei Chaoren asked.

Kou Chen wasn’t bothered by his sock-like sausages, he even laughed along with them, but that sentence irked him.
He pointed at Wei Chaoren: “With your IQ, forget about surviving past the first episode, you can’t even make it into the cast.”


They couldn’t stop laughing as they made their way to the classroom.
Jiang Lei only stopped laughing when the English teacher arrived and smacked the back of his head.


At lunch, Xu Zhifan specifically asked for a steamed sausage.

“They made me crave sausages for the whole morning.” He sat down in front of Huo Ran, taking a bite.
“Fuck, it’s so salty.”

“Like a sock?” Huo Ran asked.

“I don’t know what socks taste like…” Xu Zhifan put the bitten sausage on Jiang Lei’s plate, “Lei-ge, here.” 

“Nice!” Jiang Lei took a bite as he scrolled through his phone, “It’s pretty good.”

“What kind of taste buds…” Before he could finish, a plateful of vegetables was set down beside him.

Then Kou Chen sat down.

“Why are you sitting here?” Huo Ran turned around, Xu Chuan and Wei Chaoren were still in line. 

Kou Chen didn’t answer.
He dug out a bus pass from his pocket, pressing it to his nose: “Beep! A student card.”

“…Alright.” Huo Ran ignored him, turning back to his food.

Hu Yi asked: “You’re only eating veggies?”

“Yesterday’s food was too oily, gotta cleanse my system.” Kou Chen said. 

Then, with a ‘I love vegetables’ expression he mixed them around in his plate before picking up a big lump of veggies and putting it in his mouth.

“The veggies in our cafeteria,” He frowned, “They don’t put any oil, even if you’re blanching you have to put at least some oil, right?”

“Didn’t you say you’re cleansing out your system today?” Huo Ran said.

Kou Chen didn’t say anything, staring at him for a few seconds before scarfing down his food.
When Xu Chuan and Wei Chaoren sat down with their lunch, he had already cleaned his plate. 

“Damn, Kou Chen.” Wei Chaoren looked at his plate in shock, “Why are you sitting here with a plate if you’re not gonna eat?”

“None of your business.” Kou Chen pushed his plate to the side, and looked around.
“I’m wondering if I’ll run into the girl from yesterday.”


“Hm?” Jiang Lei looked up, “Right, pretty much everyone eats in the cafeteria at lunch.”

“Do you see?” Xu Chuan asked. 

“Yeah,” Kou Chen sighed, “I see that all the girls are pretty skinny.”

Huo Ran also looked around as he ate, taking a couple more glances at the girls that passed by him.

Girls these days are all pretty conscious of their appearance, most of them being pretty skinny, like they’d blow away at a strong gust of wind.
None of the ones he saw were that tall.

It’s like looking for a needle in a haystack. 

As they prepared to leave, Huo Ran saw that popular girl.

She wasn’t with those dudes, instead sitting with the girl that kept her head down the other day, along with two other girls, chatting as they ate.

Kou Chen said that she and the others were accepting protection fees from the back of the haunted building.
Only the girl with her head down looked like the one actually paying… So they really are protecting her? Even eating lunch together?

Walking out the cafeteria, he couldn’t help but glance back.
In terms of dainty, the girl with her head down would be considered dainty. 

She probably didn’t have an appetite.
She only sat and looked at her plate, not touching a thing on it.

Like she felt his gaze on her, that girl suddenly looked up at him.

He immediately felt a bit embarrassed.

“Huo Ran,” Kou Chen called.
Before he could reply, Kou Chen already slung an arm around his shoulders, moving closer to him, “I…” 

“Go away!” Huo Ran startled, slapping his arm off.

“I’m trying to talk to you.” Huo Ran raised his arm.

“Speak.” Huo Ran looked at his arm.

“So, take us with you for National Day,” Kou Chen put down his arm, scooting over to his side and whispering, “Me, my sister, and her boyfriend…” 

Huo Ran turned to glare at him: “That many?”

“Mainly because my sister and her boyfriend are about to break up, this is the only way to save their relationship,” Kou Chen looked a little sad, “My sister and Old Yang got together in middle school, ten years, it couldn’t have been easy…”


“…Ah.” Huo Ran started.

“They won’t be there for long, just for a night or two.
They won’t cause any trouble.” Kou Chen sighed, “It’s still mainly because they want to try their best to fix their relationship.
Ten years…  My sister went from a girl to a woman.
If they break up, it’ll be hard to find someone else…” 

Huo Ran stared at him for at least ten seconds: “Kou Chen.”

“Hm?” Kou Chen turned, sorrow still written on his face.

“Fuck you.” Huo Ran said.

“Damn,” Kou Chen started, before laughing, “Why are you so uncivilized?”
