Chapter 167: The Letter Left Behind By Shen Yao (Part one)
It was Lin Chuxue’s first time getting lectured by her little brother like today, and when their call ended, she was still a bit dumbfounded. She looked at herself in the mirror. She also knew that the gorgeous life on stage wasn’t what she wanted, and she sighed, thinking about how the misunderstanding between her and Xu Cheng caused the two to drift further and further away. After putting down the phone, her agent asked, “What happened? Why are you suddenly in such a bad mood?”
Lin Chuxue shook her head. “Nothing.”
At that moment, her phone rang again. Lin Chuxue looked at it and was quite surprised. It was from Shen Yao. She picked it up and heard that Shen Yao wanted to meet up with her. She was leaving, so she wanted to say farewell to Lin Chuxue.
“Okay, where are you? I will come and find you,” Lin Chuxue said.
“Just forget it, I don’t want to be dragged into another storm and get chased around by your fans on my last day here. I will go to the cafe by your company,” Shen Yao smiled and said, and then she hung up.
Lin Chuxue packed things up right away and left the company.
Two beautiful women sitting at the corner of a cafe suddenly became the scene of the entire store, but at this moment, the two beautiful women were talking about a guy.
Shen Yao mumbled, as if to herself, “When I was on break, you came to look for me without giving me a call. You actually went to see Xu Cheng, right?”
Lin Chuxue looked at her, not knowing what to say. After all, they were best friends, and she was scared that saying more might cause more misunderstandings.
Shen Yao continued, “And then the second time you came to look for me, it was actually because you heard Xu Cheng was fighting that gang leader and you were worried about him. And then when you pushed everything aside to rush past the gate to help Xu Cheng when he fainted, I could already tell that there was definitely something between you and him.”
Upon saying that, Shen Yao bitterly laughed. “And then, I was still dumb and believed it when you explained that you two were just friends from childhood. Then, I began going all out to pursue Xu Cheng, but after these few months we spent together, I noticed that I was more and more trapped by my growing feelings for him. But, he still felt the same towards me, and he always saw me as just a good friend or a tenant. Last night, I confessed to him, and to be honest, I was quite disappointed by his reaction, which led to me not being able to stay here anymore and fooling myself. But after thinking about it for the whole night, I’m a lot better now.”
Shen Yao laughed, yet that sweet smile was also mixed with a bit of helplessness. She said, “I’m not angry at all for losing to my best friend.”
Lin Chuxue’s big beautiful eyes slightly opened even wider as she looked at Shen Yao full of shock. How did she find out?
“You want to ask how I knew it was you, right?” Shen Yao smiled and said, “On that night when Xu Cheng was hospitalized, I indirectly probed him, and he said he already likes someone else. Personally, I don’t think I can lose to any girl with what I have, and plus, if I just take a little more initiative, not a single man would ignore me. But, Xu Cheng had no reaction towards me, so I guessed that a possible reason his determination could be this unshakable was because the woman he likes must be more outstanding than me. And then, I thought of you, and then connecting with how you guys were close since childhood, I realized that the girl he likes is you!”
Lin Chuxue looked down, her long eyelashes covering her eyes. At a moment, she didn’t know how to face Shen Yao.
Shen Yao wasn’t angry, and she reached out to hold Lin Chuxue’s hands as she softly asked, “In fact, you like Xu Cheng too, right?”
“I…” Lin Chuxue didn’t know how to respond. She was afraid that Shen Yao would get angry at her for not telling her all this beforehand.
“Are you still going to keep it in and not even tell your best friend?” Shen Yao said, almost pleading.
