Rebirth to a Military Marriage: Good Morning Chief
413 Boyfriend from Nowhere
It seemed like the saying 'The good never comes true, but the bad comes true' was very right.
Or rather, Qiao Nan had sensed something, thus she mentioned her mother and sister to Qiao Dongliang.
After making a brief phone call to Zhai Sheng, Qiao Nan rushed back to school on the weekend afternoon.
Qiao Nan had yet to arrive at school, but there was already a boy pushing around with the guards at about ten meters away from the school gate. The boy seemed to want to enter Ping Cheng High School but was stopped by the guards.
"I have already said no. You are not a student from our school, so you can't enter our school. Today is the weekend. Why aren't you going back to your school? Why did you come here? Go back." The guards were helpless. Fortunately, there were not many people like him. Otherwise, they would be very busy.
"I have said that my… my girlfriend is studying at this school. I am here to see her. Please let me in." The boy's face was flushed. It seemed that he had to muster his courage to say that his girlfriend was in that school.
Qiao Nan noted that he was here to look for his girlfriend.
But on second thought, she found it odd. The students in their school would use going to the library as an excuse when they were in a relationship. They would never dare to address each other as boyfriend or girlfriend.
"Impossible. Students in our school do not go into a relationship. We are very strict with our students. What school are you from?" The guards were mad. Ping Cheng High School was a good school and was very strict. It was impossible for the students to go into a relationship and for the party concerned to come looking for them at school.
"I…" The boy stuttered and did not say which school he was from.
"Hey, look at his pants. Isn't that the school uniform of The High School Affiliated to Renmin University of China?" One of the students who walked into the school noticed the pants that the boy wore and pointed out that the uniform was that of The High School Affiliated to Renmin University of China.
"The High School Affiliated to Renmin University of China?" The guard looked at the boy in surprise. "Do your teachers allow you to get into a relationship? If so, do so at your school." One should not mess around with the female students in their school.
"I-I'm not…" The boy looked very awkward and embarrassed. He wanted to deny but his pants gave himself away.
The boy had no other way but to come up with another idea. "Why don't we do this? I won't go into the school. Can you let my girlfriend come out to see me? She is very shy. You can tell her that someone is looking for her. In fact, I don't really want to affect her reputation at school."
"Oh." The guards glared at the boy. He had already created such a fuss, yet he said he did not want to affect his girlfriend's reputation at school. He must be bluffing.
It would only take a day for the teachers and students in their school to know that a female student from their school was in a relationship with a male student from The High School Affiliated to Renmin University of China and that he came to the school to look for her.
The guard was upset. Since they did not concentrate on their studies but went into a relationship, they must not be good students. He must report to the principal so that he would do something about it. "Who is your girlfriend? I will let her know."
"Qiao Nan." The boy's eyes lit up. He was especially excited at saying her name.
Several students at the school entrance were stunned upon hearing Qiao Nan's name. They stared dazedly at the boy.
The guards dug their ears to make sure that they did not hear wrongly. "Can you repeat it? What is your girlfriend's name? Which grade and which class is she in?"
"Qiao Nan from the first year's class one!" The boy said loudly and confidently. How could he not know his girlfriend's class and level? They must have wanted to test him.
Ping Cheng High School's first year's class one was an important class. He was a student of The High School Affiliated to Renmin University of China and was very compatible with Qiao Nan.
With that, the atmosphere grew to be very awkward.
Qiao Nan was the star student at Ping Cheng High School. Everyone from every level knew her name.
Everyone, including Qiao Nan herself, was shocked. She felt as if she was struck by lightning and there was a current going through her body, feeling burnt inside out.
She had a boyfriend, but her boyfriend was Brother Zhai. When did she have another boyfriend from The High School Affiliated to Renmin University of China? It was absurd.
Qiao Nan stared at the back of the boy. Gao Yan was the only boy from The High School Affiliated to Renmin University of China that she had seen before. But this boy was shorter than Gao Yan. His voice was unpleasant and he was short in stature.
In order to figure out where on earth this 'boyfriend' came from, Qiao Nan walked a few steps forward. "This classmate over here, hello, do we know each other?"
The people nearby widened their eyes when they saw Qiao Nan. They were ready to see a scandal unfolded right in front of them.
"Who are you?" Although the boy did not wear glasses, it seemed that he had myopia. He squinted his eyes and looked at Qiao Nan. After staring at her for more than a minute, he finally came to his senses and said in surprise, "You are Qiao Nan?!"
"Oh my god! Where did this lunatic come from?" Students from Ping Cheng High School were ready for a good show.
Everyone could tell from his tone that he did not know Qiao Nan at all. Otherwise, he would not take so long to recognize Qiao Nan. The two of them did not know each other, yet he claimed that Qiao Nan was his girlfriend. He must be crazy.
Qiao Nan sighed in frustration. She did not know the boy at all. "Since you don't know me, why did you tell others that I am your girlfriend?"
"You are my girlfriend!" The boy said with certainty. "I-I have long wanted to come to see you, but the workload in The High School Affiliated to Renmin University of China is very heavy. Now that the midterm exam is over, I have more time, so I came right away to see you. Qiao Nan, are… are you angry at me?"
Qiao Nan pursed her lips. Was he really a madman that escaped from the hospital?
Seeing that the boy had clear and rational eyes, Qiao Nan took a deep breath. "I have never seen you, and neither do I know you. Can you tell me why do you claim that I am your girlfriend?"
"How can you not know me? We have been conversing through letters for three months. I am Sun Lei. Did you not promise to be my girlfriend in the letter?"
As soon as the boy said that, the guards were the first to misunderstand.
The guards remembered that some time back, there were indeed letters addressed to Qiao Nan about once a week. However, the timing did not seem to match. That happened during the first half semester of last year.
"Letter? What letter? I have not written any letter." Qiao Nan was even more perplexed. She did not even write many letters to Brother Zhai. How could she possibly write to other boys? This was getting even stranger. Where did this boy come from?
