Chapter 11: I Love You More
She just remembered something. She raised her hand and placed it on his forehead, then she touched her own too before mumbling to herself, “Yup, your fever is gone.”
“Im going to the cafeteria to get breakfast. Can you wait for me here”
It was a little worrying to see Song Ran like this.
Song Ran was relieved.
Gu Jinghang was going out of his way to make sure Song Rans needs were met.
When he arrived back at the dorm room, he unboxed the stainless steel lunchbox and said, “This bun is stuffed with vegetables and mushrooms. That is the red bean one. All these are your favorites. There are also steamed eggs, green bean porridge, and preserved vegetables with beans. Eat more.”
Song Ran sat on the stool and reached for the vegetable bun that Gu Jinghang had handed to her. She ate a spoonful of the porridge then took a bite of the bun. Preserved vegetables are the best side dish for eating porridge.
Song Ran took another bite as she glanced at Gu Jinghang. Gu Jinghang had nice eyebrows and a tall nose with a profound expression in his eyes. He was extremely good looking and he had a healthy wheat skin color, so he was naturally overflowing with manliness. She was stealing glances at him so often it was as if she was afraid he was going to evaporate into thin air.
Gu Jinghang felt a little strange that she kept looking at him. He was worried that Song Ran had fallen out with her family which was why she had such a sudden huge change in attitude.
He tried probing her so he asked, “Did you quarrel with Aunty Shen at home Did your dad scold you”
Song Guoqing is Song Rans dad, and Shen Mengfang is his second wife. Song Ran did not like her and she had told Gu Jinghang many nasty things about her.
Song Ran shook her head and said nothing. She could not explain it, otherwise Gu Jinghang would probably see her as a crazy person.
Gu Jinghang did not ask further. He would know exactly what happened if he asked her elder sister later on.
The weather was scorching hot and Song Ran was feeling troubled. She stopped eating after finishing half a bun and half a bowl of porridge.

She glanced at Gu Jinghang and said, “I dont want to eat anymore.”
“Eat a little more, okay Look at how skinny you are.”
Song Ran shook her head and said, “I really cant eat anymore.”
Gu Jinghang took the bowl she was holding on to and poured her leftover porridge into his bowl. He also took the half-eaten bun from her and ate her leftovers without any complaints.
Song Ran was moved. Just as she was about to touch his face, someone knocked on the door.
Gu Jinghang slurped the porridge and went to open the door hurriedly. Once he opened the door, he saw Wen Huihui standing outside.
Wen Huihui was wearing a blue and white checkered dress. She had plaited her hair into two braids and had even put on some makeup. She wore a worried expression on her face as she stood before Gu Jinghang.
Gu Jinghang did not like her. Yesterday, this woman had said many things to him. The gist of it was that Song Ran despised him from the bottom of her heart and that it was not worth it to be so nice and truthful to Song Ran.
He was devastated. After hearing what Wen Huihui had to say, he was overwhelmed with sadness and he had drunk quite a bit of wine.
Looking at it now, it appeared that she did not have a pure motive.
Gu Jinghang had a tall physique so that when he stood at the door, Wen Huihui could not see that there were other people in the room. When she saw that it was Gu Jinghang who opened the door, she felt a bit more relieved.
Song Ran should have gone back home already. After all, the Song family was quite particular about reputation. Her dad Song Guoqing had a traditional mindset too. If he knew that his daughter had spent a night with a single man, he would definitely punish her severely.
“What are you doing here” Saving his smiles for Song Ran only, Gu Jinghangs face was serious as he addressed Wen Huihui.
Wen Huihui ruffled through her hair awkwardly and said, “I... I saw that you were quite unwell yesterday, so I wanted to check on you to see if you are feeling better.”
