Chapter 71: Keeping A Low Profile
Even the undergarments were pink in color? Damn, there's even a kitty picture on the butt! It was actually a set!
As Yang Ming was enjoying his view, he heard footsteps coming up from the stairs that weren’t too far from him. He was peeking here so he shouldn't be discovered! Yang Ming quickly rushed into the washroom opposite him.
Not long after, he saw a man walk over. It was actually Jin Gang!
Why would this fellow come here? Ever since the robbery acting incident, Yang Ming had not encountered Jin Gang. He thought this fellow had gotten over Zhao Ying. It was unexpected that he was still persistent even after a month had passed since the incident.
Yang Ming had some hateful thoughts. Alright, you came for me before I even looked for you. Damn it! I will make you suffer to death or else how can I answer to my bike which you destroyed?
Jin Gang knocked on the door. After a while, Zhao Ying opened the door. By this time, Zhao Ying had already changed into casual wear.
“Why is it you?” Zhao Ying frowned as she saw Jin Gang.
“It’s like this, Teacher Zhao Ying. Next week is the Sports Carnival for teachers. My sports team is trying to compile the participation of teachers in the sports categories. What are you interested in?” Jin Gang took out a piece of paper from his bag and passed it to Zhao Ying.
“Nope, I’m not participating!” Zhao Ying waved her hand as she rejected Jin Gang. “I need to teach Grade 12. I don't have the time.”
“Since this is the case, forget about it. Work is more important!” Jin Gang didn't pursue further in this matter. He simply put the paper back into his bag. Since this wasn’t his real purpose coming here, it wasn’t important whether Zhao Ying decided to participate or not. “Oh yeah, since it is already late and way past dinner time, you haven’t eaten yet, right? Let’s have dinner together.”
“No… I...” As soon as Zhao Ying thought to reject the offer, the office door was pushed open. Yang Ming strutted into the office.
Just now, Yang Ming was carefully observing the situation. When he saw that Jin Gang wanted to act friendly, he promptly pushed the door open and walked in. “Teacher Zhao, aren’t we scheduled to have me treat you to dinner?”
“Yang Ming? You came!” Zhao Ying looked at Yang Ming with glittering eyes as if she saw her savior. In the morning, she saw Yang Ming moved his lips before he left. Zhao Ying vaguely guessed that it meant “I will look for you tonight”, but she wasn’t sure. As a result, she stayed in the office after work to wait for Yang Ming. She never expected that her stay would bring Jin Gang’s visit.
“Yup! Uhm? Teacher Jin is also here?” Yang Ming pretended as though he was astounded. “Teacher Jin, we were chatting with each other in the field just now. What a coincidence!”
“What?” Chatting in the field? Who wants to talk to you? Jin Gang was dumbfounded. “What?”
“Ah? I understand... I understand...” Yang Ming intentionally acted mysteriously as he nodded his head. “It’s nothing. It’s nothing!”
Zhao Ying looked at the two people in front of her with doubt. What did they chat about?
Jin Gang was surprised as well. Is it possible that this brat is afraid of me because his bicycle was broken last time? So, is he intentionally acting friendly with me?
“Teacher Zhao, my grade has gotten better thanks to your tutoring. In order to show my gratitude for your help, I will treat you to dinner as a token of appreciation!” Yang Ming spoke in a serious manner just like an obedient student.
“This...” Zhao Ying hesitated. She didn’t know why Yang Ming wanted to treat her for dinner. However, she wanted to escape from Jin Gang. Thus, she nodded, “Alright, your teacher will give you a chance to show your appreciation!”
“Teacher Jin, would you like to join us?” Yang Ming looked at Jin Gang at the side.
“Ah?” Jin Gang looked at Yang Ming with unbelievable eyes. He never expected to be invited. “Are you talking to me?”
“Yes, Teacher Jin. I will be treating both of you for dinner. Why don’t you take the favor?” Yang Ming spoke with a smile.
“Alright!” Jin Gang agreed without much thought. Only a fool would miss the opportunity to dine with Zhao Ying when someone else was paying the bill!
Zhao Ying was puzzled that Yang Ming would actually invite Jin Gang. She looked at Yang Ming with a doubtful expression.
Yang Ming pretended he didn’t notice it intentionally as he simply walked out the office.
Zhao Ying couldn’t help but follow. She could only ask Yang Ming in the future. She became irritated when she noticed Jin Gang’s smug expression.
At the school gate, Yang Ming raised his hand to hail a taxi. He opened the door and went into the backseat before anyone could react in time.
Jin Gang was taken aback. Originally, he wanted to sit next to Zhao Ying in the back seat. He could never imagine that Yang Ming was one step ahead of him as he took a seat in the taxi. There was nothing else he could do. Jin Gang could only sit next to Yang Ming while Zhao Ying sat in the front seat next to the driver.
“Where are you going, folks?” The taxi driver asked.
“Tavern Heaven On Earth!” Yang Ming spoke the name of the tavern where Wang Zhitao invited him last time.
“Alright!” The taxi driver replied with a nod as he began the journey.
Zhao Ying frowned as she heard, Tavern Heaven On Earth? Isn’t it a very high-class tavern? Why would Yang Ming head to such a luxurious place? Even with Jin Gang? After a series of thoughts, she uncontrollably turned her head around and looked at Yang Ming.
Yang Ming replied with a smile and a gaze to let her rest assured.
“How do I call you?” Jin Gang turned his head and asked Yang Ming during the journey.
“Yang Ming.” Yang Ming replied.
“Your performance isn’t bad!” Jin Gang patted on Yang Ming’s shoulder.
“Uhm, a bicycle must keep a low profile; a man even more so must keep a low profile or else, bad luck will happen.” Yang Ming suddenly said.
“Uhm?” Jin Gang was dumbfounded. With that, he slightly contemplated it. He thought that Yang Ming was acting submissive. Thus, he replied with a joyful manner, “That’s right. Lay low, hehe!” Nevertheless, Jin Gang wondered why this little brat would know that he smashed his bicycle. At the same time, he thought that he successfully intimidated Yang Ming.
“Hehe, hehe.” Yang Ming also laughed a little in order to go with the flow. He thought to himself, Sucker, I am talking about you. Keep a low profile! Since you can’t lay low but shamelessly follow us, don’t blame me for what is going to happen. Death awaits you.
Zhao Ying noticed Yang Ming and Jin Gang chatting with each other. The doubt she held within her heart became more clouded. How did the both of them get along with each other? Weren’t they being tit-for-tat with each other?
Jin Gang was overwhelmed with happiness. It was Tavern Heaven On Earth! I have never been to such a high-class place. I can have a date with Zhao Ying while Yang Ming pays the bill! Lady luck is smiling on me!
