“If that’s the case, let’s go and take a look.”
After looking at the class list, Gu Jinmi looked at Ouyang Wen and asked, “Senior, where are we going next?”
Ouyang Wen gave it a thought before saying, “Do you want to follow me to my secret garden?”
“Secret garden? What is that place?” Gu Jinmi pretended not to understand and looked at Ouyang Wen.
“What place? Follow me and you will know. Hehe, let’s go!”
Ouyang Wen brought Gu Jinmi to his secret garden. Even though Gu Jinmi had already known long ago that this secret garden is very beautiful, there’s a difference between reading a book and seeing it in real life! Moreover, she has never been out to play before.
Gu Jinmi immediately ran over, whirled a few rounds, turned her body and said with a smile, “Wow! This place is very beautiful! Hahahaha.”
Ouyang Wen looked at Gu Jinmi who was basked in the sunlight and couldn’t resist gaping at her. This girl is very beautiful!
Gu Jinmi saw Ouyang Wen in a daze so she ran over and waved her hands, saying “Senior, Senior, what happened to you?”
“Ah! No, nothing. How is it? Are you happy?”
Gu Jinmi nodded her head ferociously and said, “Happy, very happy. I have never been to such a beautiful place before! I feel like I have become a fairy, like I’m walking on clouds, hehe.”
“Never been here before?”
“That’s right. My body used to be very weak so I was often bedridden and had very little chances to go out.” Gu Jimin suddenly realised that she seemed to have made a slip of the tongue. Luckily, the original host seemed to have been recuperating for the past few years. She hastily added, “Luckily, my health has improved a lot these few years so my Father and Mother approved of me going out.”
“Ah! So that’s how it is. Then, right now you…” Ouyang Wen looked at Gu Jinmi worriedly.
“Hehe, I’m fine now. Look at me, don’t I look healthy? The doctor said that as long as I pay attention to maintaining my health, there won’t be any problem.” Gu Jinmi explained.
“Maintain your health? Looks like your family will have to hire a nutritionist in the future.” Ouyang Wen said softly.
“Ah! Senior, what did you say just now?”
“No, nothing. If that’s the case, why don’t I bring you out for strolls more often in the future?”
“Okay! Okay! It’s just that, will it be too much of a bother to you, Senior? After all, you must have your own work to do too.”
“It won’t, it won’t, I’m happy to do so.”
“That’s great.” Hehe, that’s one more chance to get closer to the second male lead. She felt that the day to success is not far now.
After Ouyang Wen and Gu Jinmi had stayed at the garden for some time, Gu Jinmi checked the time and said, “Senior, it’s getting late and since there wasn’t many classes today, I told my Mother that I would be home earlier, so…”
“If that’s the case, let me send you home!”
“Ah? Oh! Sure!” Gu Jinmi agreed happily after regaining her senses.
When Ouyang Wen saw Gu Jinmi’s expression, he smiled for a moment before saying, “Ok, let’s go now.”

Upon reaching the school’s main entrance, Gu Jinmi saw that Yuchi Feng and Wang Quanquan were still at the entrance. No way! They still haven’t resolved their argument?!
Gu Jinmi turned to look at Ouyang Wen who coincidentally, was also looking at her. Gu Jinmi asked, “Aren’t you going to help him? Isn’t he your best friend?”
“Hehe, it’s fine, there’s no need. This is a small matter, Feng can solve it by himself. Let me send you home first!”
“Ok!” After all, this matter does not involve her. “My house is at Xiang Yuan estate.”
“Xiang Yuan estate?!”
“Yeah, that’s right. Why?”
“Hehe, it really looks like we’ve been brought together by fate! I’m also staying at Xiang Yuan estate. What is your unit number?”
“Yeah, number 51.”
“Looks like you don’t live far. My house is at number 59. Why have I never met you before then?”
“Hehe, I only came back August this year. Before that, I’d always lived overseas so it hasn’t been that long.”
“Oh, so that’s how it is.” Ouyang Wen nodded his head thoughtfully and said, “Number 51, could it be that you are Uncle Gu’s……”
“Yep! My Father’s surname is Gu!”
“Hehe, it seems like we really did meet before.”
“Meet before? How did I not know?!”
“I’ve carried you before, when you were younger!”
“Carried me before?” Gu Jinmi replied, surprised.
“Yep! I remember that you used to be chubby and you’d start to giggle whenever you saw me. I also remember that you did something especially foolish.” Ouyang Wen reminisced.
“You, you, you are not allowed to say it. The past is in the past, I am now a lady. You are not to talk about my embarrassing past otherwise I will ignore you.” Don’t think she doesn’t know that he’s talking about how she foolishly jumped into a waterhole when she was four years old.
“Hehe, ok ok ok, I won’t mention it. This is a good opportunity to meet Uncle and Aunty Gu.” Ouyang Wen couldn’t hold his laughter when he saw her appearance – as if wanting to burrow into a hole.
Upon arriving home, Gu Jinmi rushed in and said, “Mummy, I’m home.”
Mother Gu immediately caught Gu Jinmi and hit her rear, saying “This child. You are already so old, yet you’re still so disorderly.”
Mother Gu’s actions made Gu Jinmi wish that she could disappear. She said, “Mummy, there’s someone here!”
“There’s someone here?!” Mother Gu turned to look behind her. Once she saw Ouyang Wen, she said “Oh! Ouyang is here! Quickly sit down, sit down.”
“Aunty Gu! Excuse me for coming to visit without notice. I ask for Aunty Gu to forgive me.”
“Aiyo! This child, what are you saying? I’m very happy that you came! Oh yes, why did you two come back together?”
Looking at a certain individual who was still hiding in a corner bashfully, Ouyang Wen replied, “Oh! You see, this morning, when I went to register, I coincidentally met Jin Er and we got to know each other. Since it was on the way, I sent Jin Er back.”
“Aiyo, doesn’t that mean that the both of you have a senior and junior relationship now?”
“That’s right, Aunty Gu.”
“That’s good then, that’s good. I was worried that this girl will be bullied in school. Luckily, Ouyang, you’re in the same school too. I will trouble you to help look after Jin Er.”
“Hehe, Aunty don’t worry. I will take good care of Jin Er in school.”
“That’s good then, that’s good. It’s getting late, why don’t you stay for lunch? I will tell housekeeper Feng to start preparing. Ouyang, don’t decline.”
“If that’s the case then I’ll have to trouble you, Aunty.”
“It’s not troublesome, not at all, how could it be troublesome? In the future, this girl Jin Er will have to depend on you! Do come and visit more often next time.”
“Ok, as long as Aunty doesn’t find me annoying.”
“How can that be? Ok, that’s enough. You two youngsters should chat.” Mother Gu said before turning to leave.
