After Chen Yuzhou left, the office was once again restored to its usual calm and tranquility. Chu Xiaoxiao and I didn’t leave straight away. We stayed behind to open up all the windows and vents, airing out the gas fumes, otherwise it’d be a dangerous hazard for the people that would be coming back to work in the morning.
The night has fallen, and settled. It was quiet outside. When I opened the window, a cool breeze blew in, clearing and refreshing my mind clean of what just took place minutes ago.
Chu Xiaoxiao came to my side, still in a state of excitement, blood rushing and adrenaline and all.
“You, do you need to talk?” She looked at me and asked.
“In all of my life, I’ve only heard that when we go see shrinks for our compulsory mental evaluations. Between my buddies, we call that brain assessment and manipulation. Instructor Chu, did you perhaps think that my brain is in need of a thorough checkup?”
“You don’t have to be so defensive about it. Even I could tell. It was all fine until he mentioned that name, Jiang Ming. After that, your mood went south almost immediately. I’ve never seen you like this before. Did you planned all of this tonight just for that Jiang Ming character?”
