Chapter 247: The Male Lead Raises a Cat (64)

Just as she was extremely excited, the host’s sweet voice rang out, “Sorry, due to a small mishap, the program of Jiang Yiran, a student from Class 7 of the sophomore year, will be postponed. Next, let’s welcome…”

She couldn’t help but show a stunned expression, involuntarily considering a possibility and hastily becoming flustered. But thinking that the other party couldn’t possibly know it was her doing, she calmed down slightly.

The sudden uproar echoed in her ears, accompanied by the murmurs of surrounding classmates. “It’s Jiang Yiran; what is he doing here? Isn’t he supposed to be backstage?”

“I don’t know; he seems a bit off.”

Xu Qinglu’s body couldn’t help but stiffen. She told herself to stay calm, but she couldn’t help but have some wild thoughts. What if the other party knew it was her doing? The more she thought about it, the more uneasy she felt, and beads of cold sweat formed on her forehead.

The girl sitting next to her asked in a lowered voice, “Xu Qinglu, what’s wrong with you?”

Xu Qinglu forced a smile and said, “It’s nothing; I’m just feeling a bit unwell.”

She could already hear the noise getting louder over there, gradually quieting down only because of the teacher’s speech.

The girl beside her lowered her voice, infatuated, and said, “Jiang Yiran is coming this way; he looks so handsome in his suit.”

Xu Qinglu heard her own heartbeat getting louder and began to feel restless.

The girl’s attention was all focused over there, not noticing Xu Qinglu’s situation, and she continued, “Xu Qinglu, Jiang Yiran is coming this way; is he looking for someone? Maybe he’s looking for you; I’ve seen you guys talking several times.”

In normal circumstances, hearing this would have made Xu Qinglu ecstatic and vainly looking over. But at this moment, she had no such thoughts; her mind was filled with the worry of whether Jiang Yiran had already found out it was her.

Sitting stiffly in her place, Xu Qinglu felt the temperature of her whole body drop, the girl’s words ringing in her ears like a death knell, making her face extremely pale and her lips trembling slightly.

Until the girl beside her stopped talking, accompanied by that person’s uniquely cold voice, “Xu Qinglu.”

This was the first time Jiang Yiran had called her by her full name, but Xu Qinglu couldn’t feel happy. There was a flicker of fear in her eyes, but she had to force herself to remain calm, then lifted her face, showing a forced smile. “Classmate Jiang, do you need something from me?”

Jiang Yiran’s cold gaze fell on her, his tone chilly. “Come with me.”

There was a momentary stiffness in Xu Qinglu’s smile, but it quickly returned to normal as she looked directly at him and said with a smile, “I’m sorry, classmate Jiang, I’m not available right now. Can it wait until after the school celebration?”

She thought her performance was seamless, unaware that when she said those words, her eyes were flickering abnormally and her voice was trembling slightly.

Jiang Yiran coldly said, “You know what you’ve done. My patience is running out.”

Xu Qinglu forced a smile. “Classmate Jiang, I don’t understand what you’re saying.”

Jiang Yiran grabbed her wrist, exposing the claw marks on the back of her hand, then said coldly, “I don’t need an explanation. Where did you hide her?”

His usually captivating eyes were now completely cold, like a lump of freezing ice, enough to freeze someone’s nerves.
