Don’t be So Proud (别那么骄傲) – Chapter 9.4

Don’t be So Proud (别那么骄傲) – Chapter 9.2

Surprise! Yup, I think this is the only time in the last 3.5 years that I have ever posted off schedule. LOL. Wishing a regular reader good luck on her exam, and hoping this will help her relax.

The switch back has happened, and now He Zhi Zhou and Shen Xi have to go back to a normal life. Wonder how the people closest to them will find this change.
