The Love Equations 舟而复始 (致我们甜甜的小美满) Chapter 12


Chapter 12 - Fuse

"Teacher, can we not have class today?" Li Duyou asked Zhou Xiao. Pfft! If he didn't want class he should have said earlier, why did he deceive her here, cause her to not be able to go on a date with Zhao Fanzhou.

"Why? If we are not having class then I am going back." Just nice, she can go surprise Zhao Fanzhou.
.
"No, no, it's chatting, um—yes, practice speaking."

"Okay." Anyway, he is the boss since he is paying anyway.

"What do you want to talk about?" Zhou Xiao was most afraid of looking for topics to chat with others.

"Anything." Such a brilliant smile! Showing off his white teeth?

"Why do you want to learn Chinese?"

"In Korea, a lot of people learn Chinese." Strangely, aren't Chinese obsessed with Korean dramas, how come Koreans love learning Chinese? It must be that they finally understand the profoundness of the Chinese culture, pfft! Give us back our Dragon Boat Festival, otherwise, we will choke you! Zhou Xiao began to imagine the situation of taking dumplings choking Li Duyou, and couldn't help laughing.

"Teacher, what are you laughing at? You smile so kawaii." Strange, isn't he Korean, why speak Japanese! When he praised her, she was still shy at the start, but later she became immune to it. This person's praise is too worthless. He can praise almost everything. I remember once he said to her: "Teacher, outside, very beautiful little bird." When she saw it, she saw a blackbird which stopped on the wire. According to her little poor biological knowledge, it should be a sparrow that wants to become a phoenix.

"Teacher, what do you do during the Spring Festival?" What?? If it weren't for his innocent kindness, she really doubted whether he was teasing her.

"What festival did you say?"

"Spring festival." Well, forgive the Chinese level of foreign friends, Zhou Xiao took a deep breath, "What do you mean by Spring festival?"

His face was puzzled: "Don't you know the Spring festival? Don't you teach Chinese?"

Zhou Xiao is very helpless: "Of course I know the Spring festival, but I guess the meaning I know is different from what you know." "Why not the same? Teacher, your Chinese is not good..." God! Don't force her to strangle him! "You take out the dictionary and check it for me." 

After a long time, the Korean dictionary turn spring festival into 青春期 (adolescence) or 思春期 (puberty). Is it right for Korea children to love puberty? Is the person who compiled the dictionary responsible? Caused her to be called not good at Chinese. After explaining to him for a long time, he finally understood the difference between the two, she really admired herself!

The chicken and duck talked for a long time and finally came to an end. Zhou Xiao glanced at her watch. It was half-past four. She and Zhao Fanzhou agreed to meet at four o'clock below the International Student Department. Died, she hurried down. "Teacher!" Li Duyou suddenly stopped her again, "I am going down too, let’s go together." 

She had no choice but to walk down with him, and she saw Zhao Fanzhou standing at the corner of the stairs, talking on the phone. Zhou Xiao pointed to Zhao Fanzhou and said to Li Duyou: "That person who is on the phone is my boyfriend." The implication is that I will go on a date with my boyfriend. So shoo as far away as possible? Sure enough, she cannot be too gentle with foreigners. Li Duyou just nodded and followed her to Zhao Fanzhou.

Zhao Fanzhou noticed them when they walked downstairs together, this is the first time he saw the student she was teaching, he did not know she was teaching a boy who looked like  ...... ah ......a male lead from a Korean drama. "I will attend. She's here, bye." He hung up the phone, looked at them, and waited for her to introduce him. The two babyfaces standing together, look quite matching! When he asked her how her student looked before, she simply gave a vague answer: Ordinary. Being late and hiding the truth, increasing the crime, see how he cleans her up!

She could feel the smell of gunpowder in the air. She was only half an hour late. Is it necessary? 

Xiaolu always slowly puts on makeup in the dormitory, letting her boyfriend wait until the spider silk is out. Is it right to bully her when she is a good wife and a loving mother?

"Well, he is Li Duyou, he is Zhao Fanzhou." Zhou Xiao did not want to introduce. Li Duyou, have you heard of this phrase 一日为师,终身为父 (illa: Even if someone is your teacher for only a day, you should regard him as your father for the rest of your life.), your teacher is now in danger, may I trouble you to hurry up, go away and stop making trouble for the teacher.

"Hello." "Hello." The two shook hands politely.

Then the atmosphere suddenly froze. Li Duyou didn't intend to leave, nor did Zhao Fanzhou. Both seemed to be waiting for her statement. She had to embarrassedly say to Li Duyou: "We're leaving, goodbye."

"See you tomorrow." Li Duyou suddenly gave her a terribly bright smile, which surprised her, he didn't have to smile so brightly as if he met the people he depends upon for his livelihood.

Along the way, Zhou Xiao carefully looked at Zhao Fanzhou's expression. Although he said that he had always been expressionless, she still felt that his current expressionlessness was very scary. 

"Well, I'm sorry, I'm late, don't be angry ." Zhao Fanzhou glanced at her and said, "I'm not angry." 

He was so angry until he wanted to burst, see you tomorrow? If he let her see the little Korean devil tomorrow, then he is the devil! Zhou Xiao rolled her eyes, pfft, not angry? Who doesn't know that the angrier he is, the more expressionless his face is?

"Okay, you're not angry. Let's eat." She said a little coquettishly by shaking his hand. He didn't answer her, he was thinking in his head to find a way to prevent them from meeting tomorrow. The best way was to let her quit being a tutor.

She saw that he had no reaction, and felt a bit bored, he only waited for half an hour, why put on a sour face, what about those time that he made her wait forever when he had his stupid meeting.
He still had a sour face while eating. Zhou Xiao tried to ease the atmosphere several times and did not get his response. He only ate in silence.

"You are a song in my heart, a flower blooms in my heart..." His cell phone rang, hehe, she set it last time, he always rolled his eyes after listening to it, he wanted to change it, but she used her force to suppress him.

She glanced at it, and Jia Yichun's name flashed on it. She suddenly regretted the ringtone she set.

Zhao Fanzhou picked up the phone and started to stand up and walked outside. Shit! Isn't it just a phone call? Does he need to be so mysterious! !

She looked at him as he stood at the door and answered the phone, and suddenly felt very angry. Packed her bag and went out. When passing by him, she heard him say, "Don't cry, calm down” The tone was the tenderness she rarely heard. She thought he didn’t notice her, but he suddenly grabbed her hands, glared at her, covered the microphone and said, “Where are you going?” 

“Aren’t you answering the phone? I’ll go back first so I don’t hear I shouldn’t listen to." 

"Why are you unreasonably making trouble?" His voice brewed with anger and impatience. 

Okay, so tender to others, so impatient to her. Unreasonably making trouble, right? He hasn't seen what is real unreasonably making trouble yet. Time to show him today what is unreasonably making trouble. 

She suddenly grabbed his phone, and the phone was closed with a click. "This is unreasonably making trouble, now do you know?" 

“Are you crazy ?" He grabbed the phone and started dialling with one hand and grasping her with the other hand. Looking at him, she suddenly lowered her head to take a bite of his hand, he didn't expect this trick of hers and let go when she bit him. She dashed off with a loud jeer. If she was this fast when she took the 800 meters running test in high school she wouldn't have to retake the test so many times.

Zhao Fanzhou froze for two seconds and off his phone and chased after her.
