Suddenly, she added, "Can we have a private talk? Just the two of us? There's some stuff I want to tell you!"
She then turned to the man and said, "I hope you won't mind!"
"Why should I?!" He smiled pretentiously.
After giving her a pensive look, he dipped his head and kissed his girlfriend's cheek. "Give me a call when you reach home!"
He then walked away.
Yun Shishi called Mu Xi, who happened to be free, and told her to pick them up in fifteen minutes' time.
After that, it was just the two of them.
She asked out of the blue, "Xiao Xue, how long have you been in a relationship with Gao Nan?"
"About half a month!" Her lips curled into a smile unknowingly as she spoke. "Time flies! Do you know that it feels like a dream still? I didn't expect him to agree when I expressed my liking for him, yet in fact, we've been together for half a month now. It's so incredible!"
"Do you really like him this much?"
"Of course! You know very well that I'm picky when it comes to choosing my partner! He fulfills all my fantasies for an ideal boyfriend."
She then told her, again, how she much she loved the man. It was love at first sight for her.
"He's tall, handsome, and talented; more importantly, he's very capable. I didn't believe in love at first sight in the past, but it happened to me. There's really such a thing, huh!"
"Well…" she probed tentatively, "how much of him do you know?"
Her friend was baffled and then seemed to be crushed by her question.
"If I understand him deeply, will I still feel so insecure?"
"Do you know that many girls in the office fancy him because he's so outstanding? That is so irritating! I have to face so much competition in the office every day. This is also why I can hang on in my workplace for so long."
She looked forlorn as she continued. "I like his capability at times, but most of the time, I hope that he isn't so exceptional! Do you know? I accidentally saw a message from a girl confessing her like for him despite knowing that he has a partner!"
"Shishi, I'm really feeling insecure. I'm afraid that I'll lose him one day."
She did not know whether to laugh or cry at her friend's words. "If your relationship isn't stable, then isn't it too soon for him to meet your parents?"
"That's because I really like him!" her friend sheepishly admitted. "By the way, I have something to ask you."
"Do you think that one should unreservedly give all to her partner when she's in love? Er… I mean… that kinda stuff."
Xiao Xue's face turned beet red as she hinted, "He asked me several times to do it with him…"
Her friend's question took her by surprise, but she quickly got what she was driving at.
"Xiao Xue, I remember you telling me before that you don't believe in premarital sex."
Back in university, her friend resolutely declared that she would preserve her chastity for the wedding night.
"Eh! Still, Gao Nan said that… there's no need to be dogmatic in this era," she explained, looking troubled.
"Actually, times are different now, and there's no need to uphold past ideals, but there's a prerequisite to that: The man must worth it! Besides, if he really loves you, he won't force you to do anything you don't want; he shouldn't question your feelings for him because of this, too. Do you understand?"
