Little Sweetheart - Chapter 53
At night, when Gu Siyi was about to go to bed, she received a call from her mother.
“I saw the bracelet you got,” she said. “You won’t ask for advance living expenses for the next month since you bought that right?”
“No, I haven’t used any of my money. If you don’t believe me, I can transfer it to you.”
Her mother sighed on the other side. “If you want to buy these things, just tell me, your mom will give you extra money, don’t buy in secret….”
Gu Siyi rolled her eyes, she was being misunderstood again. “That’s not the case mom.”
“Then how did you get that bracelet?”
Gu Siyi took the phone, walked to the balcony, and continued, “Xia Zhijun bought it for me, our classmates had dinner together, and he bought it for me when we passed the shopping mall on the way back to school. He said his mother kept asking him to prepare gifts for me as a reward for the hot sauce.”
Xu Jiahui (Gu Siyi’s mother) sounded suddenly interested. “Oh, this kid is really particular. How are you getting along now?”
“Very good….” Gu Siyi couldn’t help but smile under the calm moonlight. “And thanks to his English tutoring, I also became an English class representative.”
“He’s the person I have the best relationship with from school. Whenever I have a question to ask, he’s the first person I go to.” As for the questions, she couldn’t ask him directly he would pass to her the answers. For example when she was on the podium, last class.
Obviously, I can’t tell her that but I’m still grateful.
“Who used to complain all summer vacation? You said that he made you want to transfer to another school, that his excellence made you feel like a scumbag, and that you didn’t want him to take care of you….”
“Is it annoying now?” Xu Jiahui teased. “Do you still blame us for bringing you to this school?”
Although Xu Jiahui was poking fun at her daughter, she was pleased to hear that she had a good relationship with Xia Zhijun. “Next time he has a birthday or something, remember to bring him a gift. I’ll fund whatever you choose.”
The next day, after eating breakfast, Gu Siyi returned to the classroom with a cup of soy milk.
She sat in her usual position sipping her milk and reading a book. Eventually, she arranged her things and pulled out her phone to take a nice picture.

“So, did you borrow 1,000 from anyone?” asked Zheng Peipei after hearing the click of the image.
“No need. I asked my mother, and she gave me the money.” Gu Siyi was too embarrassed to say that she borrowed from Xia Zhijun, for fear of being booed by them again. “I plan to take advantage of today’s physical education class and return the 4,000 yuan to Lu. Ming.”
“Ah? You pooled enough money to pay him back?” Zheng Peipei tapped on the desk, wondering, “I don’t get it honestly. It was his choice to buy you gifts, so why do you have to pay him back?”
“I think this will prevent future troubles forever.” If she just returned the gift he may continue to send more hoping she would like one of them. But if she paid for them he would be too embarrassed to continue and let a girl pay for his gifts.
“Then I’ll accompany you when that happens.” Zheng Peipei volunteered.
“Okay.” This was a little relieving for Gu Siyi. It was always annoying to talk to a group of boys when they were whispering and laughing with each other.
Zheng Peipie leaned back to her table and picked up her phone to send a text to Lu Jiaye. ‘During the physical education class today, Si Yi is going to pay Lu Ming back, do you want to go together? With the four of you, those stinky boys wouldn’t dare to be presumptuous.’
Lu Jiaye: ‘Such a lively thing, we must go!’
Lu Jiaye: ‘We are the heavenly group of male gods!’
Zheng Peipei: ‘Ha ha ha [wave emoji]’
When Lu Jiaye received the news, he immediately turned to his deskmate Xia Zhijun, “Little dimple’s group is going to pay Lu Ming back. Let’s go together.”
Xia Zhijun nodded slightly without looking at him.
“My sister is really interesting.” Lu Jiaye added. “She’s especially interesting because she refuses people by throwing money at them.”
Xia Zhijun bent his lips and said, “She can do whatever she wants, it’s okay.”
