On the other side, Lin Yi couldn’t help but look at Jian Ai while eating.
Three people were sitting at the same table. One of them was a tall and thin boy who wore glasses and looked very refined. His name was Gao Yang.
One of them had bronze skin and short and neat hair. He had a strong build and was called Yan Tian.
There was another girl who had short hair and was exceptionally pretty. Her name was Xia Qinghuan, and she was Yan Tian’s girlfriend.
The three of them were Lin Yi’s classmates and were practically inseparable in school. They were all relatively famous people in school.
Lin Yi focused his attention on Jian Ai in the distance, and the three of them couldn’t help but look at one another.
Yan Tian knocked on Lin Yi’s plate with his chopsticks. “Hey, hey… what’s with you? Don’t tell me you’ve really taken a liking to that silly girl!”
Lin Yi came back to his senses. He looked at the three of them and shook his head. “No, I just think she’s different from before.”
“Hah, I think she must have lost her mind when she fell into the pond,” Yan Tian said with a look of disdain. “How dare she ask you to treat her to lunch for a month just like that!”
“This whole thing started because of me. I have to apologize to her, right?” Lin Yi frowned and whispered.
Gao Yang pushed his glasses up the bridge of his nose and said, “Although you’re right, Li Yunmei was the one who had pushed her into the pond. Even if it’s compensation, Li Yunmei should be the one to compensate. Although you don’t lack three to five hundred yuan, I have a feeling that she is extorting you.”
“I say, are you guys more or less done?!” Xia Qinghuan couldn’t bear to listen anymore. She put down her chopsticks and said unhappily, “If you guys didn’t make that bet, would she have been pushed into the pond? Look at what happened now. You want to completely remove yourself? Let me tell you, Jian Ai is fine now. If she really drowned to death, you’ll all be held responsible! And I’ve always thought that Jian Ai was the type to submit to adversity. Yet today, she asked Lin Yi to compensate her. I, Xia Qinghuan, really think highly of her.”
Xia Qinghuan looked at Lin Yi and said, “Lin Yi, don’t think you’re at a disadvantage. This is your fault. You should treat her.”
“Tsk, who are you siding with? Why are you still speaking up for others!” Yan Tian glared at Xia Qinghuan.
Xia Qinghuan picked up her chopsticks and continued eating. Her tone was casual as she replied, “I’ll help reason, not kin. Jian Ai doesn’t have a temper, but you guys can’t just pick on the weak and bully her.”
Yan Tian wanted to say something, but Lin Yi interrupted him. “Qinghuan is right. I already feel sorry for her in my heart. I would feel better if I made some material compensation to her. That joke of ours went overboard. It was our fault in the first place.”
“Alright, alright. Between the two of you, one is willing to fight while the other is willing to suffer. We won’t bother about that anymore. It’s not like you’re lacking that bit of money, anyway.” Yan Tian shrugged and leaned back in his seat, looking like he did not care at all.
After lunch, Jian Ai went straight back to class. However, as soon as she sat down, the girl in front of her quickly turned around and whispered to Jian Ai, “Jian Ai, are you really with Lin Yi?”
The girl’s name was Xu Jiaojiao, and she usually didn’t have much interaction with Jian Ai. At this moment, she was afraid that she couldn’t control the burning fire of gossip in her heart, so she couldn’t help but ask Jian Ai.
As Jian Ai tidied up the textbooks for the afternoon, she replied calmly, “No.”
