There was no need for them to tell an acquaintance that they were a couple. Peter nodded as he relaxed, then glanced at Ian. “Do you want to play with us?”
Ian hadn’t intended to participate in their games, but he felt the sudden urge to do so after hearing Peter’s question. “Can I borrow your racket?” he asked as he turned to look at Cindy.
Cindy had no reason to reject Ian, so she handed the racket to him. He took it and waved it around a few times. This grip feels really good. I’m sure this racket isn’t cheap, Ian thought. Without any proper warm-up, Ian served the shuttlecock and played with Peter for a few minutes just to get used to this racket.
Cindy stood by the side and watched both the men play. However, she sensed a figure approaching her after a short while. The person spoke up before Cindy had a chance to turn around. “I’m surprised. You’ve got some skills.”
When Cindy turned around, she wasn’t surprised to find the girl who had thrown her bottle away earlier. Although Cindy was a good-tempered person, it didn’t mean that she didn’t have a temper. When she heard what the girl said, she immediately let out an icy scoff. “Well, should I pick one for myself now? I think Peter’s pretty good-looking. What do you think?”
The girl’s expression stiffened. “You made things really clear with your actions—even I could tell that you’re interested in him. Do you think he isn’t aware of your feelings?” Cindy asked.
