“Wait a minute, Qiu Li.”

Qiu Li walked out of the gate of the community and turned around to see Jiang Yu chasing after him.

She was wearing a white down jacket, which hung loosely on her body, it made her oval face look extraordinarily well-behaved, and her skin seem even whiter in winter.

The tip of the nose was a little reddish from the cold, and it looked a little dull. Jiang Yu ran to Qiu Li, took off her white scarf, put it on Qiu Li’s neck, and carefully tied a knot: “It’s so cold outside, you should wear more.”

A little bit of warmth.

Qiu Li originally thought that this girl’s scarf was completely unsuitable for him, and instinctively wanted to tear it off, but the warmth on his neck and the light fragrance on the scarf made his nerves suddenly sensitive.

He acquiesced to her movement, put on the scarf, and said, “I’ll pay you back next time.”

“Okay.”

Jiang Yu walked a few steps with him, and then said, “I passed Esmera test successfully. The assessment of the Art Center is over, and I really want to thank you today.”

“You thank me every time, and every time I ask will you thank me like this?”

“Then what… should I still invite you to dinner?”

“I don’t want to eat.” Qiu Li said and raised his hand.

As soon as he moved, Jiang Yu immediately took two steps back vigilantly, her dark eyes looked at him with some precautions.

However, Qiu Li only lightly touched her white flushed cheeks with his fingertips.

“You’re so afraid of me, you still say you want to be with me.”

“It’s not that I’m afraid.” Jiang Yu nodded slightly: “What’s there to be afraid of.”

Qiu Li’s eyes opened with a wanton smile: “That’s right, what’s there? I’m just scary.”

“Of course, you’re my… boyfriend.”

“Then come here.”

Jiang Yu hesitated for a few seconds and walked in front of him.

Qiu Li’s deep eyes drooped down, he leaned over to approach her, and touched her fair face.

Jiang Yu thought he was going to “attack” suddenly, and turned her face away subconsciously.

However, Qiu Li just closed his eyes, breathed between her temples, and sniffed the smell on her body.

After a long time and after being satisfied, he stretched out his hand and pushed the hair on her temple behind her ears, and said in a low and sexy voice: “I hope one day, you can really let me be your…boyfriend.”

Then he smiled and turned to leave.

There was another goose feather snow fall from the sky.

Jiang Yu looked at the back of the young man leaving, and unconsciously touched her earlobes, feeling itchy in her heart, she walked back home slowly.

Jiang Manyi had been waiting for her by the door, and she hugged her and said with a smile: “Your boyfriend is quite handsome.”

Jiang Yu was a little embarrassed, and pushed Jiang Manyi into the room: “Don’t get me wrong.”

“Did I misunderstand, isn’t he your boyfriend?”

“Not the kind you think…”

“What are you afraid of, your mother is not that kind of conservative parent.”

Jiang Manyi thought that Jiang Yu was afraid of her opposition, so she simply laid it down in front of her with clear attitude: “As long as it doesn’t affect your academic performance, I don’t care whether you’re in a relationship or not.”

“My grades… how bad can it be if it affects me. Besides, didn’t you ask him to urge me to study?”

Jiang Yu felt a little guilty, she didn’t want to continue this topic, so she turned around and went back to her room.

Jiang Manyi walked to the door of the room. After a long time, she said softly, “My dear, if you really go down that road, you will give up a lot of things, including the person you love the most.”

Just like Bu Tanyan back then.

Jiang Yu was silent for a moment, turned her head, and said to her firmly, “I will live up to my heart and my dreams.”

“I hope so.”

At the end of the year, Jiang Yu went to the Lingque Art Class to go through the formalities for withdrawing. Lin Quwen personally wrote a letter of recommendation for Jiang Yu and asked her to take it to the Esmera Art Center.

Jiang Yu sincerely thanked Lin Quwen for taking care of her during this time.

When packing her belongings, several girls took the initiative to chat with Jiang Yu, they congratulated her, expressed their remorse to her, and even added her WeChat.

These girls used to follow Fan Danxi and Wu Silin, and they ridiculed her a lot. Now that she had been admitted to the Esmera Art Center, and she had become Bai Shuyi’s disciple, she had a bright future ahead.

So, they rushed over to make friends with her.

Jiang Yu walked out of the locker room with a shoulder bag on her back, and deleted the WeChat messages of the girls she had just added.

Walking out of the door of the Lingque Art Class, she couldn’t help but look back.

In her last life, her ballet dream ended here.

And now, her new life… had begun.

With a sound of “ding”, the 【Knowing】 app sent her a message, “Received a new commission, a commission fee is 30,000 yuan, do you accept it?”

During this time, in order to prepare for Esmera’s promotion competition, Jiang Yu rejected many tasks.

Although Esmera’s tuition could be reduced with scholarships, but after embarking on this road, there would definitely be a place to spend money in the future.

Jiang Yu must consider the reality, and she didn’t want to increase Jiang Manyi’s burden because of her dreams.

So she clicked 【Accept】 happily.

Soon, a girl named 【Lin】 added Jiang Yu as a friend.

“How can I help you?”

[Lin】: “Hello, I would like to ask you for help. In the winter of 2014, I want you to go to the Lingque Art Class to help me clear my trumped-up charges.”

Jiang Yu was slightly surprised and looked back at the large characters which read Lingque Art Class.

Why was this client… someone she knew?

“Clarify the situation clearly.”

[Lin]: “My name is Wu Silin. In 2014, because I was jealous of a girl, I wanted to cut up her newly bought brand-name ballet shoes. I went to the locker room where she kept the shoes, but I…I didn’t find her shoes, and because I was nervous and afraid of being discovered, I ran away in a hurry.”

[Lin]: “Later her old dancing shoes were damaged by someone, who I don’t know. But I didn’t do it at all, I wanted to do it, but I didn’t!”

[Lin]: “Because of that incident, I was forced to drop out of school, and later had to give up dancing ballet, which affected my whole life, in fact I had a very bad life. I regret it now, and I know my fault. If you really come from the past, I hope you can help me clear my grievance!”

Jiang Yu looked at the text she had received, and was shocked.

“You say… what’s your name?”

[Lin]: “My name is Wu Silin.”

Thinking of what happened that afternoon, Jiang Yu was a little confused.

How could such a coincidence happen?

This client named 【Lin】 was obviously her classmate Wu Silin.

Because she slipped into the storage room and cut up Jiang Yu’s ballet shoes, Lin Quwen ordered her to drop out of school.

It seemed that this incident had a very bad influence on her, and her destiny had changed accordingly.

Presumably, her future life would be very bad, otherwise she would have not come to the 【Knowing】 app for help in order to resolve her regrets.

However, if the shoes were really not damaged by Wu Silin, who did it?

Jiang Yu exited the chat, and then opened the service account of 【Knowing】: “Does the client know my information?”

[Knowing] service number: “The company strictly hides the information of the reborn.”

Jiang Yu fell into deep thought.

If Wu Silin didn’t know her identity and just asked her for help as an ordinary client, then the authenticity of what she said… should be high.

Jiang Yu decided to have a good chat with the future 【Lin】, “Here, if you lied, I won’t be able to help you.”

[Lin]: “I didn’t lie, it’s all to this point. If had done it, I would have admitted it, but I didn’t do it, I am not reconciled! Back then I just wanted to cut off her VCI shoes, but I didn’t find any VCI shoes, please believe me! I used to target her often, but I really regret it. If I can go back to the past, I am willing to apologize to her.”

“I will find out, if it is really not you, and I will not let you be innocently wronged.”

[Lin]: “Thank you!”

Putting down the phone, Jiang Yu sat by the long stairs near the art class, carefully recalling what happened that day.

In the surveillance video, after Wu Silin came out, no other classmates entered the storage room, only a cleaning aunt from the art class.

Aunt Baojie was not too bad, and there was no grievance or hatred between them…

But as Wu Silin said, if this matter was really done by her, she would not spend so much money to find a reborn person from 【Knowing】 to help resolve her regrets.

She must have suffered an injustice. After so many years, she was still brooding over it.

Jiang Yu returned to the art center and found the cleaning aunt who entered the locker room that day in the utility room on the first floor.

The cleaning aunt was wearing white overalls, while chatting and laughing with her colleagues against the wall.

Seeing Jiang Yu coming over, she suddenly looked a little flustered, stood up subconsciously, and restrained her smile.

Her nervous expression was caught in Jiang Yu’s eyes.

She became more and more certain, this cleaning aunt must know something.

“Aunt Zhou, can you come out and talk to me alone?”

“Talk…what?”

“Talk about what happened in the locker room that day.”

When she heard Jiang Yu had come to her to ask about that matter, Aunt Zhou’s expression became even more intense. She became nervous, and she couldn’t speak clearly: “I…I didn’t do anything! What’s there to talk about!”

“I didn’t say that you did.”

“Then why did you come to me!”

Jiang Yu looked at the other cleaning aunties behind her, and smiled: “Are you sure you want to talk to me about this in public?”

Aunt Zhou immediately felt guilty: “Then… let’s talk about it in another place.”

In the corridor.

By this time, Jiang Yu was even more convinced that Aunt Zhou must have something to do with this matter, and the nervous expression on her face had already betrayed her.

“Aunt Zhou, you cut up my shoes.”

Jiang Yu decided to ask her directly.

“No… It’s not me! I didn’t do it.”

“Aunt Zhou, if you admit it now and tell me why you did it, I can promise you not to tell Teacher Lin Quwen, but if you insist on denying it, I will call the police directly.”

Aunt Zhou had a guilty conscience. As soon as she heard Jiang Yu say that she was going to call the police, she was overwhelmed with fright. She cried and said, “No, isn’t it just a pair of shoes? You call the police… What’s the point of calling the police?”

Jiang Yu said solemnly: “The impact of this incident is very big. Wu Silin also dropped out of school because of this, which may affect her future development. Aunt Zhou, do you think you can bear the consequences of destroying a student’s life?”

Auntie Zhou’s psychological defence completely collapsed and she said regretfully: “Oh, I have no grievances with you, I didn’t cut your shoes on purpose, it was someone… Someone gave me two hundred yuan to let me look for a chance, I saw that your shoes are also very old, so I just…”

“Who asked you to do this?”

“Yes… It was a very young…”

Aunt Zhou didn’t say anything, she just listened to the corridor, where a low male voice rang out: “Xiao Yu, aren’t you leaving yet?”

Jiang Yu turned around and saw Qiu Li wearing a black jacket, standing at the end of the corridor, with a white scarf in his hand, and his dark eyes were filled with a hint of confusion.

As soon as she saw him, Aunt Zhou was so frightened that her legs went weak, she took a few steps back tremblingly, avoiding his cold gaze.

Qiu Li came over and put the white scarf in his hand around her neck and looped it several times.

“Why are you here?”

“To pick you up.”

After saying that, he took her backpack and put it on his shoulders: “What are you still dawdling here?”

“I was asking auntie about something.”

Jiang Yu looked at Aunt Zhou again.

She stood tremblingly in the corner, not daring to look directly at Qiu Li, her eyes seemed to be dodging something.

“I… I don’t know anything, I didn’t do anything, don’t ask.”

Seeing her retort, Jiang Yu was a little anxious: “But you just admitted it.”

“I admitted nothing, I have done nothing. No one instructed me, and I didn’t receive any money, I…it’s not me, you go away!”

After Aunt Zhou was about to leave, Jiang Yu quickly blocked her way and said eagerly, “Aunt Zhou, this is related to the fate of another girl. If it is really you, tell me, I will not pursue it!”

“Don’t ask! I can’t say, that person is bad… I really can’t say it!”

Jiang Yu stared at her eyes as she blurted out, “What are you afraid of? He’s not here!”

At that time, Jiang Yu fell in a trance, as if she understood something…

She slowly turned her head back to see Qiu Li smiling, but those bottomless eyes were like a cold abyss.
