Chapter 137: Tit-for-tat

Ye Jian1Ye JianProtagonist and the Child of a Late Heroine felt helpless once she heard Gao Yiyang’s voice echoing from behind her.

The only thing I’ve yet to do is to stick “Rejection” on my forehead. Why is he still taking the initiative to greet me? I thought that I’ve already explained it clearly enough previously. Ultimately… things still roll out this way.

She turned around and rubbed her temple, a pained expression on her face. Looking at the charming young man before her, she sighed. “Classmate Gao, it looks like I have to repeat myself. I really dislike you…”

“Why do you dislike me so much? Is it because I’m courting Ye Ying?” Gao Yiyang did not want to hear similar words again. Besides, he never understood what he had done to make Ye Jian loathe him. He really couldn’t recall… having done anything that could have disgusted her!

He did not want her to treat him like her best friend. However, he still very much wanted to befriend her like a normal classmate would and be able to communicate peacefully with her unlike how it was now because whenever he wanted to say something, she would instantly shoot him down. .

Ye Jian, who was listening after having been interrupted by him, smiled widely and commended him, “Not bad, at least you still have some self-awareness.”

After listening up to this point, Ye Ying could not hold herself back anymore.She walked towards them with a cold look on her face as if she had realized something important, “Classmate Gao’s reputation in school has always been pretty good. It just so happens that you, Ye Jian, have beef with him.”

“Ha! There were a few things I couldn’t understand before, but after hearing what you just said, I have finally understood everything. You dislike him simply because he is courting me? I wonder if I can say that this is the so-called hate that has sprouted from your own love?”

After listening to Ye Ying, her argument did seem very valid.

Gao Yiyang’s indifferent face looked embarrassed after hearing her words. He tilted his head to look at Ye Ying, and scolded her, “What nonsense are you talking about!”

Ye Jian liked him? He wasn’t that dumb to be unable to distinguish the difference between liking and loathing! Ye Jian clearly disliked him, and her feelings absolutely had nothing to do with ‘like’!

“I didn’t say anything. Didn’t she just admit it herself not long ago?” Ye Ying smiled at him and giggled, “Gao Yiyang, what will you do now? How about you stop courting me and start chasing after the famous Ye Jian for the sake of it?”

“I don’t want to lose the last bit of sisterly affection between us just because of a guy.”

Acting had always been Ye Ying’s greatest ability. Although her gaze was obviously chilly now, she still managed to pull off a beautiful smile.

Ye Jian chuckled and said dryly, “You shouldn’t do that. Classmate Ye Ying’s standards have always been very high. It took you so long to find someone who could meet your standards, so you should not give in to me. I’m afraid of what could happen by chance…”

After finishing her sentence, she intentionally paused for a moment and saw Ye Ying’s face change so drastically that even her gaze became exceptionally sharp.

“Tsk, tsk, tsk. You don’t even have such magnanimity; stop acting like a saint. Look at how scared your small face has become.” Ye Jian acted as if she was teasing a dog. With just a few sentences, she could easily create ripples in Ye Ying’s emotions. Ye Jian tilted her chin upwards slightly and said to Gao Yiyang, “You should have a proper talk with your girlfriend. Don’t let her spout nonsense such as giving you up to another person.”

“What if she really did give you up, and,by chance, I accepted because I felt bored… Ha! I’m afraid she’ll cry till she passes out in the toilet. Besides, don’t ever talk to me about that nonsense called sisterly affection. Listening to it just makes my skin crawl.”

Every word she uttered did not take her feelings into any consideration, and every sentence made Ye Ying feel like she had lost all her face.

Ye Ying was so angry to the point that her lungs were about to burst. However, as Gao Yiyang was still present, she was wary of her own behaviour. She had the desire to keep her ladylike attitude, yet she couldn’t tolerate being berated, so she immediately rebuked, “Ye Jian, you are really capable! Gao Yiyang isn’t an object, and yet you want to snatch him? You have to see if he agrees to it or not! Save some face for yourself; don’t let others look down on you!”
