Chapter 142 Difficult
"Well, I'll have the original flavor. One scoop, please," Zhu Fei said, before pouting and turning to her colleagues. “You’ll both get involved in anything…”

"Well, he’s buying! It feels good to have such a handsome man serve us." The two girls were rather flirtatious, their eyes constantly wandering down Qin Feng’s body, which made him a little embarrassed.

He laughed a little awkwardly and said, "Well, I’ll go and buy the ice cream. Be right back."

Qin Feng not only left to buy ice cream but also to look for Green Snake. He knew she was stubborn and that, in her agitated state, she might do something unexpected. She was at the age when women often fell in love, but she was not able to love. No matter how cheerful she might seem at times, she would also be sad in her heart.

In a store nearby, Qin Feng found Green Snake. She was looking at Columbia windbreakers made for couples. When Qin Feng approached, Green Snake had paid, and the shopkeeper was wrapping up the first of two.

"Blue for a guy, huh? If Green Dragon wears it, it might be a little big on him. I think it suits me better," Qin Feng said with a smile.

He took the jacket from the clerk's hand, held it up and look at the mirror, smiling with satisfaction. "Well, I said it. This fits my body nicely. Truthfully, I could wear anything and it would look great."

"You are shameless!" Green Snake cried as she started to leave.

Qin Feng pulled on her shoulder and said, "Hey, where are you going? Put yours on, too. Let's look in the mirror and see if it fits. Let’s see if we look like husband and wife."

As he said this, he pulled Green Snake’s jacket out of the shop bag and helped her slip it over her body. A few shop assistants had come up to praise the pair.

"Oh, you are a really good match! Ah, so beautiful. This one looks like it was made for you."

"You’re definitely the most beautiful couple we've ever sold to."

"Yes, yes. Can you stand a little closer? Shall we take a picture?"

Listen to the praise, Qin Feng could not help but laugh. "Haha, okay. Let’s take a photo!" As he said this, he put his arms around Green Snake’s waist. She was stunned and did not open her eyes. Qin Feng nestled his head next to her ear and let the clerks photograph them like that.

Through the transparent glass window of the Columbia specialty store, Zhu Fei watched Qin Feng and Green Snake get close for the photo. The intimate, sweet scene. The matching clothing. They looked like a perfect pair, able to make anyone envious. Especially her.

After taking the picture, Qin Feng confidently pulled out his card to pay.

Green Snake gave him a surprised look. "Who asked you to pay?"

"Come on, don't put on that serious face. Let's go. I'll take you to get ice cream," Qin Feng said, pointing to the elevator. "The ice cream is on the second floor."


"What? I don't like sweet food," Green Snake said.

"Get a hot drink, whatever. Just come with me," Qin Feng said.

On the way to the second floor, Green Snake said, "Are you having an affair with that girl? Why do you care about her so much?"

"She’s a friend. She came from Su City and grew up with her stepfather. Her own father was a sanitation worker in Tianhe. A few days ago, because of me, he was beaten, and he was hospitalized until now. Her stepfather wanted her to go back to Su City and break off her relationship with her father, but she refused, so her stepfather cut her off financially.
She used to be a rich girl, with fancy clothes and jade and nice food, but now she is willing to sell clothes to support herself and help her father. Isn’t that admirable?"

After hearing this, Green Snake lit up and said, "Oh, why didn’t you say that earlier? I thought you dragged me along to visit a lover. If you had told me the truth about her, I wouldn’t have been so rude."

"Oh my god. I thought you didn't care whether or not she was my lover! How could you, a ruthless special forces soldier, care about this common man?" Qin Feng laughed.

"Well, I’m a person, too, all right? I also have desires, feelings, the desire to care for and be cared for by others. Why do you keep asking her how she’s doing, but you never ask me? Thanks to the years of our comrade relationship, you have no conscience when it comes to me!" Green Snake pouted as she gently hit Qin Feng’s shoulder with her fist.

He crouched down, raised his hands and pretended to beg for mercy. "Oh, please. Spare my life! I’ll no longer dare to offend you."

Acting crazy in this way, the two people carrying ice cream and hot drinks arrived at Zhu Fei's store.

The two saleswomen saw Qin Feng and said, "You finally came back."

"Where is Zhu Fei?"

"What? You're not together? She went out. I thought she was looking for you." The two shop assistants were very confused. They held their ice cream but did not care to eat and said, "Did she go to the bathroom?"

"You go ahead and work. I'll give her a call." Qin Feng went to the door and called Zhu Fei but no one answered.

“I think I know what happened,” Green Snake said.

"What's the matter?" Qin Feng asked.

"Look." Green Snake stood by the shop door and she could see directly through the window of the Columbia store where she and Qin Feng had been taking pictures together. "She must have seen us take an intimate picture just now in our couple’s clothing even though you told her you went to buy ice cream. You…I don’t know what to tell you."

After Qin Feng listened, he looked guilty. "We…We're fine. We were just wearing a couple’s outfit and taking a picture. Really, there’s no need to be jealous."

"Oh, it’s woman's mind. How much can you understand? You are a careless, self-centered man who thinks that what you think is what is happening. You never consider the feelings of others," Green Snake rebuked.

Qin Feng looked around, but he could not see Zhu Fei anywhere. Where had she gone?

Meanwhile, Zhu Fei had gone outside of the mall and squatted down in an alley. She did not know why, but suddenly she was very sad and wanted to cry. She also felt homesick and nostalgic, suddenly thinking of her whole family and her father who never let her be upset.

Seeing that scene just now, Zhu Fei felt ashamed. She had nothing, and what qualifications did she have to expect those things anyway?

At that moment, Zhu Fei's phone rang again.

She thought it was Qin Feng, and planned to decline the call, but then she saw that Zhou Liang was calling. She answered. She thought she might be able to find a little comfort in talking to a man who truly loved her while she was sad.

"Hello." Her voice was low, but someone who knew her could hear her mood in that single word.

"What's wrong with you, Zhu Fei? It sounds like…"

Zhou Liang began to speak nervously, but he was interrupted by Zhu Fei before he finished talking.

"It’s nothing. I have a cold. What happened? Why did you call me?"

"Oh. Nothing. I just wanted to let you know, I'm out of the hospital. I’m recovering in Suzhou." Zhou Liang added, "I heard Li Jianbin say he froze all your bank cards? You’re cut off?"

"Well, yes. How could I agree to his terms when he wanted me to leave my father? If he wants to cut me off, it’s okay. It's his money. I don't care. Even if my quality of life is a little lower now, I live happily," Zhu Fei said.

This was the first time she had been so patient with Zhou Liang. In the past, she always felt that he had a purpose for contacting her. However, considering him, she thought Zhou Liang's nature was good. He was at least down-to-earth and unpretentious. He didn’t have the temperament of a rich son.

"Well, you'd better think so," Zhou Liang said. "I've been worried about you taking things too hard."

"No. I don’t miss that family at all. Even though I left my own mother, she had already focused all her attention on my little brother. I was like a lost child. I was afraid that no one in the world really cared for me anymore."

Hearing Zhu Fei say this, Zhou Liang was sure that she had encountered something bad in the Tianhe. Although his injury had not yet recovered, he immediately said, "What’s the matter with you? Are you having any trouble? Tell me. I'll book my flight now. I'll be right there with you, okay? I'll take care of everything. Don't worry. Anything can be overcome."

Zhou Liang had never been so serious when speaking to a woman. He hoped he could convince her of his sincerity through his earnestness.

"No! No! I'm fine. I'm fine," said Zhu Fei.

"But you're in such a bad mood right now."

"You don't need to care. Anyway, I have to go back to work."

"Well, wait. Sent me your card number. I'll give you some money. You are alone in the Tianhe and you have to take care of your father. I know you won’t want my money, but for your old father's sake, will you accept it? If I just lend you the money, will you accept? Give it back to me when you have more money, okay?" Zhou Liang knew a lot about Zhu Fei, including how proud she could be.

Zhu Fei instinctively wanted to refuse, but when she thought about how it was still 20 days until she would get paid and that her family had only a few eggs left, she reconsidered. Her father's body was so weak that she needed to buy more healthy food for him. She had originally wanted to ask Qin Feng to lend her a bit, but now she thought that may have been because of her own passion. Since he had a girlfriend, he wouldn’t have time or money to spend on her.

"Well, I'll borrow your money, and if I don't pay you back in three months, give me an interest rate," said Zhu Fei.

"What are you talking about?" Zhou Liang said. "You know me. I really care about you. I--”

Zhou Liang had not finished speaking, but Zhu Fei had no patience to listen to his words. “Okay, they’re calling me. I have to go!” she said before hanging up the phone.

Even though Zhu Fei was rude, Zhou Liang was very happy, because this was the first time that Zhu Fei had said so much to him and accepted his "loan." Truthfully, he did not even consider the question of whether she would pay him back. He was simply excited to be in touch with her.

Qin Feng dragged Green Snake to Wanda Cinema next to Guihe. At that time, the newly released Super IP movie "Fight Broke the Dome of Heaven", adapted from a series on the Internet, was popular. While they were on a mission abroad, Qin Feng and Green Snake had followed it, and when they had nothing to do, they would discuss the plot. Unexpectedly, after many years, "Fight Broke the Dome of Heaven" was made into a film.

After sitting down, the theater went dark. Qin Feng ate popcorn and said, "Don't get angry."

Green Snake put on her 3D glasses and said, "What could I get angry about?"

"After the movie, let's go home and I'll make you a big meal,” Qin Feng said.

"I'm not interested," Green Snake said before focusing on the movie.

Qin Feng watched for a while, and then his mobile phone vibrated.

It was an alert from Jiang Xiaowen, a Tianhe Art Institute student. "Qin Feng brother, are you watching a movie?"

"Yes. How did you know?"

"I thought I saw you so I wanted to say hi. I saw a woman with you. I was afraid she would misunderstand me, so I didn't dare." This text was followed by several crying emojis.

Qin Feng asked, "Are you in the same theater?”

“I'm in the fifth row."

"I'm in the eleventh row, haha."

Jiang Xiaowen looked back to see Qin Feng swinging his mobile phone. She gave him a slight wave and then went back to texting so as not to disturb the other guests.

"Why don't you go to the Free Man Bar anymore? I haven't seen you for a long time," asked Jiang Xiaowen.

"I don’t go there anymore. Do you still go?"

"I've been there twice."

"Oh. I'm going to open a new bar. Then you can bring your classmates and give me some business!" Qin Feng said.

At this time, Green Snake hit Qin Feng's mobile phone and coldly said, "If you’re going to go on chatting, please get out! Are you going to watch the movie with me? What the hell are you doing? Is it so hard to be quiet with me for a while?"
