Chapter 156: My School Hunk Boyfriend Is a Ghost (28)
Xiao Hao never looked for Yu Chu again after that. Even when they occasionally bumped into each other, he would instantly flee the scene with a pale complexion. When other students saw this odd behavior, they would sometimes ask him what was wrong, but he would simply shake his head and remain silent.
He didn’t dare to say anything…
Besides, even if he were to tell the truth, no one would actually believe him.
Campus life with a ghost around could be described as chaotic. When Yu Chu was on her way home after the school week ended, she simply felt as if years flew by…
Her home was only a few subway stations away from school. When Yu Chu boarded the subway with a schoolbag on her back, it was already past the peak hours, so it wasn’t as crowded inside. Even so, all the seats were already occupied by other passengers.
After grasping one of the free handles, she slightly relaxed her body and closed her eyes as she leaned against Ji Chen behind her.
Ji Chen wrapped his arms around her waist and lowered his head, leaning his face against her cheek.
Though her school bag made him a little uncomfortable, he still didn’t want to let go.
As the subway was speeding along, it swept past lighted billboards, but it was very quiet inside the subway.
Ji Chen also remained silent.
At the first stop, a short man holding a briefcase boarded the subway. He looked up at Yu Chu, then walked in and stood behind her.
The man’s appearance was uncouth, and his eyes uncontrollably swept over her. Seeing this, Yu Chu frowned. She stood up straight and walked to the handrail at the other side, and stood there.
Ji Chen looked up and fixed his gaze at the man for a few seconds before lowering his head again, lazily leaning it against Yu Chu’s face.
When they were nearing the second stop, the man carried his briefcase and walked towards the door. As he walked past Yu Chu, he sneakily extended a hand towards her.
Seeing that she was an innocent-looking female student, he originally wanted to take advantage of her and touch her a bit here and there. After all, naive-looking female students like her were generally easier to bully and didn’t dare disclose him in public.
It was a well-thought-out plan, but when his hand reached halfway, he suddenly lost his footing and lunged forward.
The subway was announcing that they had arrived at the next station. Still, the door was not completely opened yet, so the man slammed hard against the door head-on. His head instantly bled, and he fainted on the spot.
The subway was in an uproar as passengers gathered around the man. Yu Chu merely glanced at the unconscious man, shrugged, and got off at the station.
Serves him right!
Ji Chen, however, didn’t look very happy, so Yu Chu rocked his hand and turned sideways. Standing on her tiptoes, she planted a kiss in the empty space, her lips landing on Ji Chen’s cheek as she whispered, “You did amazing earlier!”
Ji Chen glanced at her in silence. He then turned sideways and embraced her, gloomily replying, “Luckily, I was there.”
Yu Chu was confused. “Mhmm?”
Ji Chen fondly rubbed her cheek and earnestly whispered, “Without me, how could you possibly cope with so many things happening every day?”
His pitch-black eyes were brilliant as if one was gazing upon the radiant splendor of the twinkling night sky.
Yu Chu stopped in her tracks.
Among the busy passers-by, Yu Chu simply stood there in silence. She was looking sideways into the void, as if she was staring at the distant building in a trance.
Ji Chen smiled at her. “It’s a good thing that I’m always by your side, right?”
Yu Chu blinked in silence. After a while, she softly replied, “That’s right.”
From Ji Chen’s point of view, she was just an ordinary high school student and not someone who could cross different realms or possessed the ability to protect herself.
So, he’s right.
She smiled. “I’m glad you’re here.”
Dear all, as last week I only managed to publish 1 chapter due to my busy schedule, this week I will be publishing 5 chapters to make up for the 2 missing chaps. Cheers~
