Chapter 1779: Retired After Winning Merit, Honourable Although Defeated (50)
"Answer me, don't avoid me!" Xixi called out at Rick's back.
Rick slowly turned around, looking at her with an extremely complicated expression on his face. In the end, he only said, "Xixi, I'm sorry."
"I don't want you to apologize, you didn't do anything wrong. Rick, I don't want to lose you, I really don't. Ever since Mian told me that you're going back to the United States, I haven't slept and kept having nightmares of you leaving me＃ I hate this feeling, I feel like if I don't say this to you, I'll never have a chance to. I don't want our relationship to be something we used to kill time. I'm serious about what we have＃ I want to spend the rest of my life with you. I don't care who you are and where you come from. Rick, as long as you want to be with me, I will never leave you, not even if we end up living on the streets. Please believe me＃ I'm young and don't have a lot of experience in this world, but I'm not someone that can easily forget someone, nor am I a child. I know love is for life, and I envy Qin Chu and Huo Mian's relationship. They met when they were kids, but after all these years, they're still together. Do you know what I really want? I want a time machine that can help me travel back into time, I want to be by your side as you grow up＃"
After saying all that, Xixi peeked at Rick's face but noticed that it was still cold and indifferent.
The truth was, no matter what was going on in Rick's mind, he still maintained a calm demeanor. Therefore, at this moment, no one could tell what he was thinking, not even Xixi.
"Xixi＃ I＃" Rick opened his mouth to say something, but only two words came out.
Xixi was a prideful girl; she thought Rick was trying to reject her but was embarrassed to, in fear that it would hurt her feelings.
In an instant, her heart fell down to the bottomless pit.
"So you really don't care anymore, even if I confessed my feelings to you like a f*cking idiot. I bared my all to you, but you're so indifferent＃"
"Xixi, the truth is＃" Rick began but was immediately interrupted by Xixi.
"I get it, you don't have to say anything else＃ Either way, Rick, thank you for everything＃" Then, Xixi walked up to Rick, stood on the tips of her toes and gently pecked the latter on the cheek. "Best of luck to everything, Rick, bye."
Then, before Rick could respond, Xixi turned around and ran out of Huo Mian's room, tears streaming down like a waterfall.
She stumbled her way downstairs, and she almost fell on her face at the bottom of the stairs.
Huo Mian immediately went over and held her by the arm. She looked at Xixi. "Are you okay?"
When the latter looked up, her face was covered with tears. "Mian, thank you for getting me one last shot with him. I have no regrets."
Then, Xixi ran away in embarrassment, completely disregarding the injury on her arm.
"I guess they ended it, eh?" Tang Chuan asked rhetorically, while the others looked at each other without responding.
Just then, Huo Mian looked up to see Rick slowly walking down the stairs. She could tell that he was in a state of depression. "She's gone＃"Find authorized novels in Webnovelㄛfaster updates, better experienceㄛPlease click for visiting.
Upon hearing this, Rick nodded, feeling an internal struggle within. This was the result that he wanted, but why did it hurt so much? Just then, when he saw Xixi's tears, he almost gave in.
"Are you leaving now?" Huo Mian asked him calmly, and the latter nodded.
"I'll walk you out, I also need to talk to you," Huo Mian said as she walked towards the front door and walked through it. Rick followed quietly behind.
"Tsk tsk, this is a tricky matter. Do you think Dr. Huo will be able to change his mind? I bet a thousand yuan that she can＃ Anyone want in on this?" Tang Chuan interjected suddenly.
