Chapter 1069: His Change

The SUV looked to be of excellent performance and was going at a fast speed. Perhaps seeing her waving at the roadside, the car slowed down gradually.

It stopped when it was more than ten meters away from Xia Yanran.

The afternoon sun was a bit dazzling and Xia Yanran could not see who was sitting in the car. But she jogged over seeing the car stopping.

The car windows were tinted and after taking a deep breath, Xia Yanran raised her hand and knocked.

But the car window did not look like it was lowering down.

Xia Yanran was slightly stunned. This person seemed a little unfriendly! Biting her lip, she knocked on the window again.

A few seconds later, the car window was lowered and Xia Yanran smiled, saying, “I’m sorry to disturb you. Our car can’t start and we can’t repair it, do you…”

The car window was completely lowered and Xia Yanran raised her eyes to look inside. The man was wearing black sunglasses and the side of his face was handsome, strong and there was an inexplicable sense of familiarity.

Her eyes widened when she looked at him carefully.

Oh god.

It was like she had seen a ghost. She had not expected to meet him at this kind of place.

Xia Yanran’s mouth was slightly opened and there was a look of disbelief on her face, her unfinished words stuck in her throat.

How could there be such a coincidence?

The person driving the SUV was Xiao Yi.

He was wearing a black windbreaker, the zipper pulled up to his neck, sunglasses on his nose and he looked handsome and stylish. His lips were pursed and he was exuding a cold air that seemed to repel people away. He had one hand on the steering wheel and after hearing her voice, he turned and looked at her with no expression on his face.

Because he was wearing sunglasses, Xia Yanran could not see his eyes, but she could feel his coldness.

It was as if they had never known each other before. Xia Yanran suddenly thought of what he had said that day she told him not to pester her.

He did a good job. After that, he did not appear in front of her, nor did he call her again.

Some time ago, she had met her former colleague from the newspaper and her colleague mentioned that the big boss had sold his shares and they had changed bosses again.

Xia Yanran had never thought that they would meet in such a situation.

Thinking of how she forced him by putting the knife on her neck, Xia Yanran felt a little embarrassed. She pursed her lips and said ‘excuse me’ instead of asking him to look at the car for them.

Xia Yanran was about to turn and leave when the back door of the SUV was suddenly opened.

Xia Mo ran out with a smile.

“Chief Editor Xia, it’s really you.” Xia Mo had been sleeping in the back. After meeting Xiao Yi at the airport, they happened to be on the same plane again. Xia Mo heard that he was also going to the mountains, so they decided to go together.

After getting off the plane, Xiao Yi rented an SUV. He drove fast and she slept in the back. She thought she was dreaming when she heard the voice of someone talking.

Xia Yanran smiled when she saw Xia Mo, who had just woken up and rubbing her eyes. “What a coincidence.”

“Yes, yes.” Xia Mo stepped forward and glanced at Xiao Yi through the car window. Xiao Yi had already turned his head away, a cigarette dangling between his lips. He leaned against the seat and lowered his head to light the cigarette without looking at them.

After meeting Xiao Yi this time, Xia Yanran felt that he was even more difficult to get along with and more indifferent than before.

“Chief Editor Xia, are you going to the mountains too?”

Xia Yanran nodded.

“Your car broke down?”

Xia Yanran hummed in agreement.

“When your car breaks down, you can look for Uncle Xiao. He’s super impressive. He can even modify cars by himself, let alone fix them.” Xia Mo looked at the man who was smoking inside the car. “Right, Uncle Xiao?”

The man remained silent.

Xia Yanran did not know what to say to Xiao Yi and she said to Xia Mo. “It’s fine. We’ll call someone to fix it later.”

Xia Yanran turned and left.

Xia Mo leaned over the car window and frowned. “Uncle Xiao, I don’t know what happened between you and Chief Editor Xiao, but there are so few cars here and it’s not realistic to call someone to repair it. If they don’t get it fixed soon, it’ll be even harder for them to get into the mountains before it starts to get dark.”

Xiao Yi pinched out his cigarette and pushed open the door to get down. He took out the toolbox from the boot and headed for Xia Yanran’s car which had broken down by the roadside.

Wen Qian was still checking the the hood and seeing Xiao Yi coming over, he greeted him as he did not know the past between Xiao Yi and Xia Yanran.

Junyuan said nothing when he saw that it was Xiao Yi who got out of the car, quietly standing to one side to smoke.

Xiao Yi took out his jacket and he wore a thin shirt underneath. He rolled up his sleeves, showing his firm and strong arms and because he bent over to check the car, his body a perfect silhouette. His broad shoulders, long back, slim waist and long legs… Compared with the gentle Wen Qian, he was full of wildness and masculinity.

At one glance, he was not someone who was not so approachable.

Wen Qian asked Xiao Yi if he needed help and received a negative answer. Wen Qian then went to talk to Xia Yanran by the side.

“Did you not rest well recently? Your dark circles looked slightly deep,” Wen Qian asked with concern.

Xia Yanran hummed softly. “I was busy looking for a job.”

“Don’t work too hard. If there aren’t any suitable jobs, I’ll take care of you in the future.”

Xia Yanran smiled. “No matter when, women should be independent and self-reliant.”

“Don’t put too much pressure on yourself. Apply for it when you think it’s suitable for you. Treat this period as a vacation.”


Wen Qian looked at Xia Yanran’s smile and he smiled too.

The sound of the hood being closed could be heard and Xia Yanran tilted her head, seeing Xiao Yi putting his tools back into the toolbox.

Her eyes swept to his hands that were stained with black oil and she hesitated for a few seconds before taking out a packet of tissues.

“Is it okay now?” She went up to Xiao Yi and handed him the tissue.

Xiao Yi looked at Xia Yanran with his dark eyes and he hummed in response. He did not take the tissue from her and nodded at Wen Qian before going back to the SUV.

In the car, he took out a few tissues to wipe his hands.

Looking out of the window, his gaze landed on Xia Mo. “Get in the car.”

Xia Mo said to Xia Yanran, “Chief Editor Xia, then I’ll be leaving first.”

Xia Yanran waved at her and smiled. “Goodbye.”

After Xia Mo got into the car, the SUV sped away. Just like Xiao Yi said, the car had been repaired and could be started again.

When the car went back to the road, Xia Yanran looked out of the window, her expression slightly dazed.

On second thought, he had not looked at her in the eye from the moment she stopped his car and found that it was him inside.

In the past, he had always liked to go back on his words. When they had a fight, he would soon be shameless, but this time, he had changed.

Xia Yanran sighed slightly. Wasn’t this what she wanted?

Even if they met, they would be like strangers.

More than strangers.

Xia Yanran closed her eyes. She felt that it was good like this.

Each of them would have their own lives.
