Mu Huanhuan looked at him in disbelief. She couldn't believe Xin Zhao would say such a thing to her, "What are you talking about? How could you say such a thing to me?"

Xin Zhao looked at Mu Huanhuan indifferently, his thin lips pursed coldly. Mu Huanhuan said: "Do you know that for you I had..."

"Needless to say, there's nothing to talk about between us." Xin Zhao stood up, gave Mu Huanhuan one last look, and said: "The thing I regret most is that I agreed to date you when I was soft-hearted."

Xin Zhao strode out of the restaurant, and Mu Huanhuan sat there in a daze. She didn't understand why this happened, she just called Mom Zhao and cried, but it turned out to be like this. She ran away from home for Xin Zhao and suffered so much. He knew she did that, but he never cared about her at all.

Many people were in the restaurant now, and Mu Huanhuan just sat there. She wanted to cry, but her strong personality made her unable to cry in public. But she couldn't help it, so she turned her face away and faced the window. Then she saw Tao Ran standing outside, watching her silently.

Mu Huanhuan didn't know how long he had watched or how much he had seen. When she saw Tao Ran, she suddenly rushed out, rushed in front of Tao Ran and asked: "Why are you following me?"

Tao Ran said: "I'm worried about you."

"Who wants you to worry? Do you know that you're really annoying..." Mu Huanhuan stretched out her hand to push Tao Ran, but she didn't. Instead, she beat Tao Ran's chest but saw the pink scar on Tao Ran's forehead. That was the last time she hit him. What right does she have to vent her sadness and anger on others?

"Ugh..." Mu Huanhuan's eyes were red. She turned and squatted down with her back to Tao Ran, covering her mouth and crying hard.

Tao Ran stood beside her, watching her cry silently.

People who passed by them couldn't help looking at them. They were wondering if the couple had a fight? What did that young boy do to make a girl so sad?

Mu Huanhuan cried for a while, then Tao Ran walked over and said: "Get up and let’s go home for dinner."

Mu Huanhuan stared blankly at the ground as if she hadn't heard Tao Ran speak. Tao Ran bent down and grabbed her arm, then pulled her up.

"Woo woo..." Mu Huanhuan cried again, "My legs are numb, woo woo..."

"Tsk." Tao Ran put one arm around her back, grabbed her leg with the other, and then carried Mu Huanhuan princess style.

Mu Huanhuan, nestled in Tao Ran's arms, stretched out her hand to cover her face and said: "There are so many people here. Let me down."

Tao Ran ignored her and walked away with her in his arms. Gradually, Mu Huanhuan stopped talking. A woman being strong didn't mean she refused to be cared for. She just disdains it. She once thought that as long as she was good enough to love Xin Zhao, Xin Zhao would return her love equally. Only now that she realizes that she had never known Xin Zhao.

A couple on the street saw the two of them, and the woman beat her boyfriend and complained, "You've never hugged me like this."

The man felt very wronged, "Then I have to hold him."

"What do you mean?"

Tao Ran brought Mu Huanhuan back, and Mu Huanhuan sat on the stool, neither crying nor laughing, showing a feeling of despair.

Tao Ran felt that she must have been thirsty after crying for so long. After all, she had lost so much water.

He poured a glass of water and put it in front of Mu Huanhuan, "Drink it. Tears will come out after drinking it."

Mu Huanhuan's mind kept replaying what Xin Zhao said, and she asked: "Are you saying I'm bad? Am I really that annoying?"

"Do you care so much about what other people say?" Tao Ran looked into her eyes and said: "A man should never say such hurtful things to a woman who likes him. Since he says that to you, he has never taken you to heart, and he's still a scumbag. Are you going to deny yourself for being with a scumbag?"

Mu Huanhuan looked at Tao Ran, stretched out his hand and wiped her tears, "You know, my family is actually wealthy. But he angered my parents, and I ran out to be with him without taking anything with me. As long as I could be with him, I thought I wouldn't care, but he actually said that to me."

Tao Ran reached out and patted her on the back.

Mu Huanhuan had a cold, and after crying for a long time, her nose was blocked, and her nose was constantly running.

Tao Ran brought her a pack of tissue paper and sat next to Mu Huanhuan, watching her keep talking and blowing her nose. Finally, after crying for a long time, Mu Huanhuan was tired. She lowered her head and said: "Thank you for listening to my complaint."

Tao Ran smiled and said: "If you really want to thank me, forget about that person. He doesn't deserve your sadness."

Mu Huanhuan thought for a while with dull eyes and then said: "If there was no Su Mo, would he have always been mine?"

System Xiaomei suddenly popped out and said: "Alarm! The female supporting role is about to be blackened! The female supporting role is about to be blackened!"

Tao Ran reached out, grabbed Mu Huanhuan's shoulder and said: "Be sober. He and Su Mo met before you."

"But why did Su Mo come back?" Mu Huanhuan said: "If she comes back later, Xin Zhao and I will be married."

"I think you should thank her for coming back now."

Mu Huanhuan raised her head, "Huh?"

"Have you ever thought that Xin Zhao still likes her even after many years? What would you do if Su Mo came after you married and Xin Zhao wanted to divorce you? What would you do if you were pregnant and Su Mo came back?"

Mu Huanhuan said: "Then the situation is different, that is his child..."

"Will he be short of children at such a young age? Would he prefer Su Mo's children to your children?" Tao Ran said in a low voice, "If he can say something like that to you today, he never cared about you. So you have nothing to lose with Su Mo coming back now. You should thank her for not coming back late..."

Mu Huanhuan went back to her room blankly. She lay on the bed thinking about Tao Ran's words and her and Xin Zhao together. She fell in love with Xin Zhao at first sight in college, then started stalking Xin Zhao, and finally, Xin Zhao agreed to be with her.

She was so happy, but she never thought about Xin Zhao's attitude toward her. Xin Zhao seems to have always been like that, cold to himself. If she didn't remind him, he wouldn't even give her a birthday present.

Unconsciously, Mu Huanhuan fell asleep. It seemed that she hadn't slept so peacefully for a long time. When she woke up, it was almost dark, and a tempting aroma floated in from the door's crack.

Mu Huanhuan pushed the door and went out, but there was no one in the living room. So she walked to the kitchen door. Tao Ran was waving a spatula to cook.

A faint light of fire shone on the boy's face, and the boy stood there as if the years were quiet.

Mu Huanhuan asked: "Why don't you have a girlfriend yet?"

Tao Ran said while serving the dishes, "I just got out of jail. So who wants to be my girlfriend?"

"You..." Mu Huanhuan said: "I'm sorry, I don't know."

"It's okay. I will never avoid my former self." Tao Ran handed her the dish.

Mu Huanhuan took the plate, but instead of sending it to the living room, she asked: "Do you hate it?"

Tao Ran looked puzzled, "What do I hate?"

"I see that you have had no parents since you were a child, and your grandma left you soon. You couldn't go to school and have a normal job like other young men. Do you hate fate?"

He didn't know how she came up with such a middle school remark. Tao Ran said speechlessly, "I don't hate it. I think I'm fine now, having enough food, drink, playing around, and friends. You said those who go to school and live normally. Those young people, are they any better than me?"

Mu Huanhuan turned around and put the dishes on the table in the living room. Tao Ran prepared four dishes and served them. Mu Huanhuan habitually filled two bowls of rice and ate in silence. The system did not prompt Mu Huanhuan to be blackened, indicating that she should have listened to what he had said.

Tao Ran asked: "How is your body?"

Mu Huanhuan: "Except for being hungry, everything else is fine."

"Knowing you're hungry means it's not a big problem." Tao Ran asked: "When are you going home?"

Mu Huanhuan remembered the cruel words she said when she left home, and she sighed with a headache, "I won't go back for the time being."

Tao Ran frowned and asked: "What are you thinking about with Xin Zhao?"

"I can't go back to him." Mu Huanhuan frowned and said: "Before I left, I offended my family."

Well, that's a typical example of a life-and-death experience. Tao Ran asked "Do you still have to go to school tomorrow?"

"I still need to go. If I don't go, I will have no money to eat."

"Can't you take a day off?"

"No." Mu Huanhuan said: "I have to pay for other teachers' substitute lessons. It seems that I will be exhausted tomorrow."

Seeing that she seemed to be in a better mood, Tao Ran also felt happy, "Well, it's okay to be tired. You won't have time to think about some messy things."

Mu Huanhuan pursed her lips in anguish and looked up at Tao Ran, eating peacefully. Then, suddenly, she reached out and pinched Tao Ran's face.

Tao Ran was startled, "What are you doing?"

"Why are you so old-fashioned for such a young man?" Mu Huanhuan said: "Look at the group of students in our class who are similar to you. They are so naughty that I want to roll up my sleeves and beat them to death."

Tao Ran said indifferently, "You know what? Sometimes I want to roll up my sleeves and beat you to death."

Mu Huanhuan, "..." Could this feeling be murderous?

After eating, Mu Huanhuan washed the dishes, wiped the table, and swept the whole house. Then she took a bath and lay in bed. She slept for too long during the day, and now she was not sleepy at all.

She was lying on the bed, and the lights in the house were yellow. It seemed to be raining outside, and the raindrops hit the glass, making a rustling sound. She used to be most afraid of this kind of thunderstorm weather. She heard the sound of Tao Ran walking around in the living room outside the door and had a bizarre feeling of peace of mind.

Clicking on the phone, the screen saver used Xin Zhao's photo.

"...Please stay away from us."

As if Xin Zhao's words were still in her ears, Mu Huanhuan's fingers circled the screen and clicked into the album. As she flipped through the photos, she found many pictures of Xin Zhao and herself on the phone, but there were almost no photos of them together.

Even the memories are pitiful, so what is there to regret?

Mu Huanhuan disliked the trouble of deleting one by one and was afraid that she would not be able to make up her mind. So, she deleted all the photos in the album.

When Tao Ran woke up the following day, he found Mu Huanhuan standing in the yard, taking a selfie.

She has completely recovered, and she has learned to be smug. Tao Ran was about to wash up when Mu Huan happily ran over and said: "Come here, I'll take a picture."

Tao Ran stretched out his hand to cover his face, "I haven't washed my face yet."

"It doesn't matter." Mu Huanhuan put her left arm around Tao Ran's neck on tiptoe. She forced Tao Ran to look at the camera and instructed, "Take your hand away and take a picture."

Tao Ran, "I really hate this woman."

"I hate to take a photo." Mu Huanhuan pointed to the camera and took a selca at 3,2,1.

In the photo, Tao Ran frowned in disgust. Still, the hair on his head ruined the overall image, and Mu Huanhuan's face was squeezed beside him, smiling like an idiot. Mu Huanhuan admired for a moment and praised, "Do you know that you are very photogenic."

Tao Ran sneered and turned to wash his face.
