I looked at him, startled and clueless. It had been an act on my part, but Sang Shixi’s sudden burst of emotion was out of my expectations.
To be honest, I never could quite understand his feelings towards me. Seeing how he still believed that my little act had been genuine, I may as well take this chance to ask him about it and clarify a few things.
“Sang Shixi, you really do like me?”
He lowered his head and looked at me, “Who is to say that I can’t?”
“I don’t get it, why would you like me?”
“You’re a woman and I’m a man. There can be love even between the same sex, so what’s so strange about me taking a liking to you?”
