“What class are you in, Classmate Si Zheng Ting? My name is Zhuang Nai Nai; Zhuang as in ‘village’ and Nai as in ‘helpless’. People call me ‘Make-shift Grandma! Hahaha—”
(TN: Her name is Zhuang Nai Nai (庄奈奈), which is a homonym to Zhuang (装/Posing as) Nai Nai (奶奶/Grandmother))
“Wei, why aren’t you speaking? You have a really nice voice, I like it a lot!” Zhuang Nai Nai had continued following him all the way to the classroom.
When she realized that they were in the same class, her eyes light up. “Classmate Si Zheng Ting, we are in the same class! Seems like we have predestined affinity together!”
The rest of their classmates: …………….
Si Zheng Ting ignored her and sat on his seat. Zhuang Nai Nai ran to him and pointed at her desk which was not far away from his, “My seat is over there! My name is Zhuang Nai Nai, don’t forget oh~!”
The moment the class started, the students had to introduce themselves to their classmates.
Zhuang Nai Nai propped her chin on her two palms and stared at Si Zheng Ting like a love-sick idiot.
During lunch time, they went to the school canteen to eat.
Zhuang Nai Nai carried her lunch box and spotted Si Zheng Ting from afar. She rushed to him, “Hi, Si Zheng Ting, is there anyone sitting next to you? Can I sit there?”
Just as she was about to sit there, he calmly said, “Someone’s sitting there.”
Zhuang Nai Nai: …………
She smiled at him, “There are empty seats around. That person can sit there, or there, or even there!”
Si Zheng Ting raised his eyebrows at her before looking at her from top to bottom. He frowned, “Do we know each other?”
Zhuang Nai Nai: ………..
She really wanted to throw a temper tantrum. So, everything she said to him on the way to class was for vain?
Did he think that she would simply give up and walk away? Well, he was wrong.
She raised her face as she smiled, “You don’t remember me? I am your classmate, Zhuang Nai Nai!”
Si Zheng Ting simply said, “Oh,” before lowering his head to go back to eating.
In Zhuang Nai Nai’s opinion, they could still be considered friends. What was wrong with eating on the same table?
Unfortunately, reality was often different than expectation.
The next day, she bumped into him on the way to class. Zhuang Nai Nai had been so excited and had rushed towards him, grabbing his sleeve, “We meet again, Si Zheng Ting! What a coincidence!”
He looked at her indifferently before hesitantly saying, “You are?”
Back then, Zhuang Nai Nai thought that Si Zheng Ting had progsopagnosia. Perhaps, that was why he was so cold and did not like to speak to anyone. Even Su Yan Bin, who was frequently spotted by his side was not excluded. When they were together, Su Yan Bin would speak non-stop while Si Zheng Ting would only listen.
Zhuang Nai Nai had been very determined back then. In order to make him remember her face, she would pop up in front of him whenever she saw him just to say, “Hi, Si Zheng Ting, I am Zhuang Nai Nai! Zhuang as in ‘village’ and Nai as in ‘helpless!’”
She originally thought that as long as she tried her best, he would definitely remember who she was!
One day, she saw him walking to class while carrying his bag.
Just as she was about to rush to him, someone near the door stopped him, “Classmate, please help me call Han Lin Lin.”
