Chapter 1318: Give You a Car
However, Jing Xiaolu hesitated, and she hung up the call. Jing Xiaolu had changed a lot now, and her character was not like the previous delinquent. She felt that it was not polite to answer the phone in class, so she hung up the phone and sent a text message.
Yang Ming rarely voluntarily called her. It was the first time he looked for her. After Jing Xiaolu hung up the phone, she regretted it. She was holding her mobile phone and waiting for Yang Ming to reply.
After waiting for a long time, she didn’t see Yang Ming’s reply coming in. Jing Xiaolu was so anxious that she wanted to call back. When Yang Ming’s response finally came, Jing Xiaolu quickly opened the message and read it.
Seeing that Yang Ming said that he was waiting for her downstairs, and he asked if she could go down, Jing Xiaolu’s heart trembled, and her face blushed like a girl who was about to meet her first love. She was restless in her heart, and she didn’t know what to do…
How can he find me at this time? Jing Xiaolu looked at her mobile phone in a silly manner; she carefully checked the phone number. There was no mistake! It is really Yang Ming’s mobile phone number!
However, Yang Ming didn’t have any substantive relationship with me. We are just good friends, and Yang Ming has never taken the initiative to find me. What is going on this time?
*Could it be that… because Yang Ming saw my dispirited look when I came out from the dormitory building, so Yang Ming is concerned about me? *Jing Xiaolu felt sweet in her heart as if she had eaten honey…
However, Jing Xiaolu soon restored her calmness. Jing Xiaolu wasn’t stupid. This kind of thinking was too whimsical. If she were Lin Zhiyun, Yang Ming would definitely care about her, but she wasn’t. She was just Yang Ming’s friend, just an ordinary friend. Yang Ming was unlikely to care about her to such an extent.
Thinking of this, Jing Xiaolu was a bit frustrated. Maybe I’m overthinking it… But no matter what, seeing Yang Ming is also good. Jing Xiaolu didn’t say too much with Yang Ming at the dormitory gate. One of the reasons was that her mood wasn’t great, but the main reason was that Jing Xiaolu knew Yang Ming was waiting for Lin Zhiyun, and Lin Zhiyun was about to go downstairs. If Lin Zhiyun saw her pestering Yang Ming, then it wouldn’t be good.
Therefore, Jing Xiaolu hurriedly left Yang Ming after speaking two sentences, but it didn’t mean that Jing Xiaolu didn’t want to spend more time with Yang Ming. Now, Yang Ming took the initiative to contact her. It was still good, no matter what. Even if it were just asking her to come out of the classroom to make her busy, Jing Xiaolu still felt that there was more progress than before.
Thinking of this, Jing Xiaolu couldn’t help but be happy again. However, why do I feel a little self-abusive?
Jing Xiaolu raised her hand to take leave from the teacher. “Teacher, I am a little uncomfortable; I want to go back earlier…”
It was always easier for a female student to take leave than a male student. Before Jing Xiaolu finished talking, the male teacher who was teaching the theoretical lesson waved his hand and signaled to Jing Xiaolu that she could leave.
There were many reasons why the male teacher was uncomfortable in asking because there was a serious male teacher who just graduated. A female student asked to take leave, saying that she felt uncomfortable, but the male teacher couldn’t see why the female student was uncomfortable, no matter how. Therefore, the male teacher rejected it as he needed to know the reason. He asked if she was feeling uncomfortable, then where did she feel uncomfortable?
As a result, the female student also became very angry. She used to take leave in front of other teachers, and it was usually very smooth, but why was she rejected today? And this female student was really in a rush, but this male teacher still did not let her go. In a hurry, the female student shouted, “Teacher, I am bleeding underneath. The sanitary napkin can’t hold it, and I really need to change it now! Do you want to see?”
As a result, the male teacher’s face flushed, and he never dared to ask about a girl’s reason to take leave again.
With that male teacher’s previous lesson, the other teachers also learned to be smart. They always turned a blind eye to the female students who took leave, so Jing Xiaolu came out smoothly from the class.
When she went downstairs, she saw Yang Ming standing at the art academy door. The handsome face in the cold wind moved Jing Xiaolu.
“Yang Ming? Are you looking for me?” Jing Xiaolu was blushing like a ripe tomato. Her eyes blinked as she looked at Yang Ming; there was even a slight smile on her mouth.
Yang Ming was stunned by Jing Xiaolu’s appearance. She still looked dispirited just before. How did she become like she had gotten a big prize in the blink of an eye?
“Xiaolu, why do you look so happy?” Yang Ming couldn’t help but ask.
“Happy? Yes, am I not happy all the time? I am more happy today when you asked me out,” Jing Xiaolu said bluntly.
“Ugh…” Yang Ming was stunned. If he didn’t see the post on the Internet, he would even think that Jing Xiaolu was fine! “Weren’t you dispirited when I met you just now?”
“Oh, that’s the company’s business. It’s not related to you… It’s nothing…” Jing Xiaolu’s brow frowned slightly when she mentioned that matter; she seemed to be a little unhappy.
“Xiaolu, Zhiyun told everything to me.” Lin Zhiyun noticed the forthright Jing Xiaolu was in a difficult situation, so he knew that this matter gave her a lot of trouble. She was happy just now because Yang Ming asked her out. Yang Ming felt sorry as he thought of this. He could make such a girl happy by simply asking her out.
“Ah… so you know about it…” Hearing that Yang Ming already knew, Jing Xiaolu no longer concealed it and sighed. “I don’t know who I have offended. Why am I so unlucky? It was posted on the Internet.”
“I was looking for you because of this matter. I have already called Jiajia. After a while, we will go to the company. I will let Jiajia find out which computer sent the post,” said Yang Ming.
Jing Xiaolu was a little surprised and a little happy. She didn’t expect Yang Ming to come for her due to this matter. It was so late already, but Yang Ming rushed here as soon as he learned of this from Lin Zhiyun’s mouth, and he planned to solve this matter tonight. This made Jing Xiaolu somewhat flattered! She was indeed flattered.
Jing Xiaolu was always the one who pursued Yang Ming, and Yang Ming just took her as a friend. He never hinted anything else.
But this time, Jing Xiaolu was satisfied even if it was out of concern for an ordinary friend.
“Do you want to stick up for me?” Jing Xiaolu looked at Yang Ming excitedly. “Then, I’ll know that you certainly won’t ignore me.”
“What stick up for you?” Yang Ming was amused. “This time, my main purpose is to eliminate some of the villains in the company. They actually used such petty means against their colleagues. Such people are not qualified to continue staying in the company.”
“Although you say this, I also know that you care about me.” Jing Xiaolu smiled proudly. “If it were someone else, how can you solve this in one night? You would have gone home to have your intimate moments with Lin Zhiyun, right?”
Yang Ming was dumbfounded listening to Jing Xiaolu’s words. What go home to have an intimate moment? But he couldn’t refute it; he could only snort to express his displeasure with her sentence.
It’s just that Jing Xiaolu didn’t care at all. “Forget it. If you don’t want to say it, then don’t say it; I just know it.”
“Well, you are my friend. Can’t I stick up for you due to the normal concern for a good friend?” Yang Ming shrugged. “I know what you think, but I am good to you, not because of that relationship.”
Jing Xiaolu stuck out her tongue. “I didn’t even mention that. Why are you feeling guilty about it?”
Yang Ming often lost in front of Jing Xiaolu, so he did not care at all. This little girl was very smart and courageous. Yang Ming couldn’t argue with her. “Get in the car. We are going to pick up Zhou Jiajia.”
“I drive?” Jing Xiaolu didn’t really want to drive. However, she felt a bit tickled when she thought of Wang Xiaoran’s words that ridiculed her. It was best to borrow Yang Ming’s car for a few days to let the people in the company see that she already had a BMW. She didn’t have to rely on the method mentioned in the online post to exchange for a car.
“You drive then.” Yang Ming was happy to save himself the trouble; he handed the key to Jing Xiaolu. “But you will be driving this car for the last time.”
“What do you mean…” As Jing Xiaolu took the car key delightedly, she was astounded after hearing Yang Ming’s words. She initially wanted to ask Yang Ming to borrow his car for a few days. Now, it seemed that Yang Ming wouldn’t lend his car to her in the future…
“What’s wrong?” Yang Ming didn’t know Jing Xiaolu’s thoughts. When he saw her sad expression, he felt very puzzled. “What is that expression of yours? I am about to tell you a good thing, but why do you seem not to be very happy?”
“What good thing?” Jing Xiaolu asked subconsciously, but her expression was not so happy. She thought, You won’t even lend your car to me anymore. What good thing can it be?
“I had Bao Sanli order a car. Maybe it will arrive in two days, and then you can get the key.” Yang Ming looked at Jing Xiaolu’s expression, but he still felt something was wrong in his heart. How did I provoke her? Why is she depressed suddenly?
“Car key?” Jing Xiaolu was stunned, then she immediately responded. She exclaimed with excitement, “You bought me a car?”
Looking at the huge difference between Jing Xiaolu’s expressions before and after, Yang Ming shook his head helplessly. “Didn’t I promise you previously? I would buy you a car. I have to make my words count, right?”
“Yang Ming, you are so good; I really love you!” Jing Xiaolu grabbed Yang Ming’s neck without any warning and kissed Yang Ming’s face. “Uh-hmm–”
According to Yang Ming’s reaction speed, he could naturally push her away before Jing Xiaolu did that, but Yang Ming didn’t do it because Jing Xiaolu’s action was instinctive and unintentional. Moreover, Yang Ming now had a good impression of Jing Xiaolu, so he didn’t resist developing a relationship with her. However, things must always go with the flow.
Therefore, after Yang Ming let Jing Xiaolu kiss him, he said, “Stop the nonsense.”
“Hihi…” Jing Xiaolu let go of Yang Ming, dancing excitedly. “Ha, I finally have a car, my own car. Let’s see what gossip the people in the company can say!”
“The car is not yours.,” Yang Ming threw a damper over Jing Xiaolu promptly. He didn’t want Jing Xiaolu to think that giving her a car represented some meaning or hint. This was just a promise. “The car’s title is registered under the company’s name.”
“That’s better. I don’t even have to explain it. If the name is someone else’s, others might think that I exchange it in another way!” Jing Xiaolu did not care at all. “Besides, the fines will be paid by the company in the future. I don’t even have to pay for it.”
Yang Ming was dumbfounded listening to Jing Xiaolu’s words… “Can’t you say something serious? Even paying a fine?”
“Just kidding. My driving skills are really good now; I won’t violate the traffic rules.” Jing Xiaolu shook her head and said, “Right, then let’s talk about a serious matter. What did you buy for me? Will I lose my face?”
“Isn’t it the X5? Isn’t this the car you mentioned the last time?” Yang Ming was stunned; he was sure that this little girl was already so excited without knowing what car he was giving her.
“Ah, it’s a BMW. Yang Ming, I really love you…” As Jing Xiaolu exclaimed, she wanted to hug Yang Ming again to kiss him, but she was pushed away by Yang Ming this time.
“Alright, don’t go too far. If Zhou Jiajia sees it later, let’s see if she will help you.” Yang Ming glared at Jing Xiaolu.
Jing Xiaolu snorted; she apparently didn’t care about Yang Ming’s words. She swayed as she got in the car, and she drove toward the computer science school with Yang Ming.
On the way, Yang Ming called Zhou Jiajia and told her that he had picked Jing Xiaolu up; he wanted her to go downstairs as soon as possible. Zhou Jiajia responded, then she went to take leave from Xiao Qing and went downstairs.
When Zhou Jiajia went downstairs, Yang Ming couldn’t sit in the front passenger seat anymore. He opened the door and sat in the back row with Zhou Jiajia, and Jing Xiaolu became a veritable driver.
“Xiaolu, you can drive?” Zhou Jiajia was a little surprised; she didn’t expect the driver to be Jing Xiaolu.
“I sometimes drive in the company.” Jing Xiaolu turned her head and smiled at Zhou Jiajia amiably. “Jiajia, sorry for the trouble. I still have to cause you to be busy with my matter so late at night.”
“It’s okay. Since I’m useful in this case, of course, I’m obliged to do so.” Zhou Jiajia said, “Can you tell me what is going on? Yang Ming didn’t clarify it on the phone just now; he just said a few words.”
“En, then I will explain to you on the way to the company.” Jing Xiaolu started the car and told Zhou Jiajia about the whole story while driving.
The matter was not complicated, so Zhou Jiajia quickly understood that Jing Xiaolu’s colleagues had created a post on the MP community to frame Jing Xiaolu.
“It turns out to be the case. If the person who posted it doesn’t know computer technology, it should be very good. We’ll just make sure that the post was sent from inside the company, then there is no problem.” Zhou Jiajia said after listening.
“The machines in the company are regularly maintained by people. The staff wouldn’t know much about that stuff, right?” Jing Xiaolu thought about it.
“En, just make sure that the IP address of the post is the IP address of the company’s external network.” Zhou Jiajia said, “Let’s talk again when we reach the place.”
“Right. Jiajia, can you use hacking technology to delete that post? If it’s always on the Internet, the impact on Jing Xiaolu won’t be good. Now, it’s just known by the company staff. If Xiaolu’s friends see it, then things will get out of control,” Yang Ming asked with some concern.
This was also a problem that Jing Xiaolu was worried about, but it was inappropriate to say it now to Zhou Jiajia. She initially planned to go to the company and find out who did it, and then she would ask Zhou Jiajia to do this, but Yang Ming said it for her first.
Jing Xiaolu thought, Yang Ming is now treating me somewhat differently. Regardless of whether he admits it or not, he must have a good impression of me. Otherwise, he wouldn’t care about me so much.
“Yeah, Jiajia, I am also worried that others will see it…” Jing Xiaolu said, “It’s fine that the people in the company saw it, but if my teachers and classmates see it, what can I do?”
Yang Ming secretly laughed.* You previously dressed like a delinquent girl, and you always cheated money from guys. Why aren’t you afraid of being judged by others? Instead, you are worried about it now?* However, Yang Ming didn’t say it. After all, Jing Xiaolu had changed in a good direction, so he should just let the past be in the past.
“Hehe, why need hacking technology?” Zhou Jiajia smiled and shook her head. “We don’t need to make such a big commotion. A netizen friend of mine is the administrator of the MP community. If I asked him, he could delete the post. We don’t have to waste so much effort; we can also ask him about the sender’s IP.”
“Wow? Jiajia, you are so powerful? You actually know so many powerful people?” Jing Xiaolu was surprised, and she spoke out of envy.
“It’s just some netizens who are engaged in computers. It’s nothing…” Zhou Jiajia blushed from Jing Xiaolu’s praise. She thought, The reality and network are vastly different. Thousands of admirers praised me in the network, but I never had such a feeling as I do now.
“Right, do you have the company keycard?” Yang Ming suddenly thought of a problem. It’s so late already. There should be no one in the company. How would they go in?
“I do have to keycard, but I don’t have the keys downstairs.” Jing Xiaolu threw up her hands. “The company will lock the door every night. I don’t know if someone is working overtime today.”
Yang Ming couldn’t rely on luck. He took out his mobile phone and called Bao Sanli, having him immediately rush to the company to wait for Yang Ming. Bao Sanli had become accustomed to Yang Ming’s call in the middle of the night, so he immediately put on his clothes and rushed to the company.
Bao Sanli bought a house near the company. He wasn’t living in the Nightless Club now. After the Nightless Club belonged to Ming Yang Entertainment, he began to implement formal management and gave up the previous “guarding territory style.” The Security Company’s security maintained the order of the nightclub.
So, Bao Sanli rushed to the company in five minutes. When Yang Ming’s car stopped at the company’s door, Bao Sanli was already waiting there.
