Chapter 39 – Truly A Troublemaker
Waited an entire night?
Seeing how serious Yang Rong looked, Bai Xiaochun couldn’t help but laugh, “Stop messing around and ask what you want to ask. We’ve practically asked each other all possible questions. What else could you possibly ask us now?”
“Who said that?” laughed Yang Rong, “The question I’ll be asking is extremely destructive. I’ve waited all night for this opportunity. The two of you best prepare yourselves for what’s about to happen.”
“Go ahead and ask away,” laughed Chu Tian, “I refuse to believe that you’ll be able to ask something totally unexpected.”
“That’s right,” said Bai Xiaochun, “We’re not scared, go and ask away.”
“I’ll ask Xiaochun first,” with a mischievous smile on her face, Yang Rong looked at Bai Xiaochun, “Xiaochun, while you’ve never been in a relationship, you yourself mentioned earlier that you wanted to be in a relationship, that the reason why you’ve been single all this time was because you haven’t found anyone suitable, isn’t that right?”
Bai Xiaochun nodded, “That’s right. Is that your question?”
“Of course not,” said Yang Rong, “I’ve yet to ask you my question.”
“Listen carefully,” said Yang Rong with an evil smile, “If my deskmate decides to go after you, do you want to be in a relationship with him?”
Hearing Yang Rong’s question, Bai Xiaochun’s face turned red instantly.
She wasn’t the only one. Chu Tian was also shocked.
What the hell!
Blushing, Bai Xiaochun said, “What sort of question is this?! Besides, Chu Tian isn’t going after me. That’s merely a supposed case. How exactly am I supposed to answer that?”
“What’s wrong with that question? Why can’t you answer it?” said Yang Rong, “The implication behind that question is very simple. I’m asking you if you want to go out with my deskmate or not. If you do, just say it. If you don’t then say you don’t. You don’t have to worry about anything, my deskmate is thick-skinned. He wouldn’t do anything even if you are to tell him you don’t want to date him. Remember, you must speak the truth. You’ve sworn that you’ll only speak the truth. Heh, hurry up.”
Seeing Yang Rong’s crafty expression, it was no longer only Bai Xiaochun’s face that was deep red. Even her nose had turned red.
“I…” Bai Xiaochun tried to evade the question, “This… this question doesn’t count. Ask another question. I’ll let you ask two questions. Ask me two other questions instead.”
“Hey, hey, hey!” laughed Yang Rong, “Are you planning to act like a sore loser now? I’m not changing my question. That’s the question I wanted to ask.”
“I…” Bai Xiaochun stole a glance at Chu Tian before glaring at Yang Rong, “Three questions! I’ll let you ask me three questions instead!”
“No can do. Even if you are to give me three hundred questions, I’m still not changing it,” laughed Yang Rong, “That’s the one and only question I want to ask. Besides, is that question that difficult to answer? If you want to go out with my deskmate, just go ahead and say so. If you don’t, then say you don’t. Just say what you’re thinking in your heart. Heck, I can tell you this that if I’m not already taken, I will most definitely pursue my deskmate. Look how simple that is. It’s just a sentence. Hurry up!”
Bai Xiaochun’s face had turned so red that it seemed like she’s about to bleed from her face. Biting her lip, she clenched onto the corner of her clothes. In the end, seemingly unable to take it anymore, Bai Xiaochun spoke with a mosquito-quiet voice, “I… I do.”
“Ah?” Yang Rong laughed before saying, “What’d you say? I can’t hear you. Speak louder.”
“I do! Argghhh! Damn Rongrong! You’re so annoying!”
Seemingly unable to contain herself, Yang Rong grabbed her stomach, leaned forward on the couch and started laughing heartily.
Seeing her laugh, Chu Tian was also unable to contain himself from laughing.
She’s quite something!
She’s truly deserving of being his deskmate!
By this point, Chu Tian had realized what was going on. Fight the Landlord: Truth Edition? It was most definitely not something Yang Rong thought up on the spot. She had planned this from the very start.
After laughing for a good while, Yang Rong sat up properly on the sofa. As if nothing had happened at all, she said, “Look how simple it is. What’s so difficult about that? If you want to, then just say so. My deskmate is tall, handsome, a skilled basketball player and possessed exceptional build. It’s only natural that women will be fond of him.”
“You should stop talking!” With her face still red, Bai Xiaochun glared at Yang Rong.
“Okay, okay, okay. I’m not asking you anything anymore, okay?”
After saying those words, Yang Rong looked to Chu Tian with a smiling face, “Deskmate, what about you? Are you prepared for my question?”
Chu Tian smiled and licked his lower lip, “Deskmate, make sure to consider your question properly. It’s best to keep some grounds so that things can be discussed peacefully in the future.”
“Hooh? You remember those words now?” Yang Rong smiled, “How come you didn’t take those words to consideration when you asked me when my first time was earlier?”
“I was young and ignorant. Since we’re deskmates, shouldn’t you give me a chance to make up for my mistake?”
“That’s a no from me,” Yang Rong smiled as she waved her hand, “Listen carefully here. We’ve been attending the university for some time now. You’ve seen a lot of female students so far. If you are to choose one as your girlfriend, who would you want to be your girlfriend the most?”
Hearing Yang Rong’s question, Chu Tian smiled. He was left helpless.
She was truly a troublemaker!
She knew the answer to that question!
Last time when Chu Tian brought Yang Rong a cup of milk tea, she asked him who he wanted to pursue. They ended up talking about Bai Xiaochun. It was also only after that conversation Chu Tian learned Yang Rong and Bai Xiaochun were actually roommates in the same dorm.
Seeing Chu Tian smiling as he scratched his head, Yang Rong smiled and said, “Deskmate, answer quickly.”
“What’s there to answer?” said Chu Tian, “Deskmate, you already knew the answer to that question.”
Bai Xiaochun took a glance at Chu Tian.
He already had someone he likes?
“I’ve forgotten,” Yang Rong laughed, “My memory’s not good. Tell me again, who is it?”
“I…” Chu Tian revealed a wry smile. Helpless, he said, “Student Lil Bai.”
“What student Lil Bai? Say the full name. What’s her full name?”
