s steps with an umbrella, and sporadic raindrops floated under the streetlights.
From time to time, female students returning to their dormitories passed by her with umbrellas.

“Xi, do you have any spare umbrellas?” The voice brought Xi Ning back to reality.
The girl in front of her held a light-colored umbrella, and her features were hidden in the shadow of the umbrella.
She could only see blurry outlines.
Even if she only heard her voice, Xi Ning could recognize her.

Although she could not see her expression clearly, she subconsciously felt that the other’s gaze fell on her school uniform jacket that had been hanging outside for the afternoon and was finally half dry.

“You…” Kong Nianxi said “you” for a long time without any follow-up.
Hearing someone calling her, she waved her hand and left.

Xi Ning suddenly remembered the clothes she had in her bag and was about to speak, but the other person had already disappeared into the crowd of umbrellas.

A few minutes later, Tu Xiaoyuan rushed out of the convenience store with her “victory prize” and happily pulled Xi Ning upstairs to their respective dormitories.

Upon opening the door to their dorm room, Xi Ning discovered that her two roommates had not yet returned.
She took out Kong Nianxi’s clothes from her bag and decided to return them to her.

The girls’ dormitory rooms were connected, and Xi Ning walked through two adjacent rooms before stopping at the door of room 612.
Although the room appeared to be lit, there was no one inside.

Just as she was turning around, a girl with twin ponytails suddenly rushed in.

“Ah, Big Mao! Something’s wrong! Quick… where is she?”

The girl was holding a pair of freshly washed socks and looked dumbfoundedly at the empty room.
She ran to the balcony to see if anyone was there, but upon confirming that there was no one, she noticed Xi Ning standing at the door and looked surprised.
“Xi Ning? What are you doing here? Is there something wrong?”

Xi Ning was about to answer, but the girl with twin ponytails grabbed her sleeve and pulled her along.
“Hey, forget about it.
Xixi is being surrounded by some second-rate psychos.
Come with me and take a look!”

As they walked, the girl with twin ponytails kept muttering under her breath.
Xi Ning was dragged along until they reached the end of the hallway on the other side.
This place was a dead end, a little ways away from the last dormitory.
Normally, no one would pass through here.
However, the usually desolate corner was now “busy.”

On the wall at the end of the hallway was an open window.
The cool breeze from the rainy night occasionally blew in, and the voice-activated lights overhead cast a dim yellow light.

Through the crowd, Xi Ning noticed a figure leaning against the wall, surrounded by some girls.
It was Kong Nianxi.

She was pinned against the wall by a group of people, carrying a bag on her shoulder and holding an umbrella that dripped with water.
Her delicate figure looked even more fragile under the watchful eyes of the crowd, as if she were the protagonist of a scene from a school violence movie where a weak and helpless beauty is harassed by delinquents.

Ignoring her lazy posture against the wall, her long legs crossed elegantly beneath her short skirt, and…

“Kong, you’ve gone too far.
You’re beautiful, but there’s no need to keep trying to take Nini away from us, is there?” That was the girl with the dyed blue hair, who stood opposite Kong Nianxi with her arms crossed, speaking unkindly.

Kong Nianxi chuckled and casually ran her hand through her hair, her red nails particularly striking.
She glanced over the crowd and said, “Who’s Nini?”

“…,” the group went silent for two seconds.

After a while, a petite girl with a round face, who was standing in the middle of the crowd, timidly looked over at Kong Nianxi before shifting her gaze towards the girl with the blue hair and saying, “I know you might not like him, but X-ge has been unable to eat, sleep, or even practice for the upcoming sprint because of you.
He went drinking and came back crying like a dog.
You… um!”

Kong Nianxi didn’t have the patience to let her finish.
She suddenly lowered her head, took two steps forward, pinched the girl’s chin, and leaned in close, her smile enchanting.
“You’re right.
I not only have no interest in him, but I’m also not interested in what he looks like.
However, my dear sister, you should have a little more confidence in yourself.
Compared to your X-ge, I might be more interested in you.”

“…,” the once restless crowd suddenly fell silent.

After a long pause, a piercing scream shattered the silence.
The round-faced girl jumped up like a thunderbolt, covering her face and running out of the crowd.

“…,” the group fell silent again.

“What the hell, Wang Li, you dare to block people in the dorm?”

At this moment, a group of tall girls walked over from the other end of the hallway, their momentum fierce.

The girl with the blue hair looked into the distance and then turned to look at Kong Nianxi.
She cursed under her breath, pushed through the crowd, and ran away.

The group of people who had been blocking the way looked at each other and then dispersed.

As the crowd dissipated, Xi Ning found herself standing face to face with Kong Nianxi.

“Kong Nianxi, you…” The girl with twin ponytails hurried over to comfort her, but Kong Nianxi walked straight past her and threw herself into Xi Ning’s arms, looking pitiful.
“Sniff, I think I was just bullied.”

Xi Ning was at a loss for words.
