About This Chapter
As the chapter opens, the narrator tells us that he has always been wary of Lijia. He says that he doesn't know what she can do to stir his heart, but that he won't worry if she does. He wants to get to know her. He tells her to accept the delivery of a sample of her perfume. He asks her where she can pick it up. She tells him to go to the gym and pick up the perfume. She also tells him that the express pick up point is under a big billboard. She thanks her sister for coming back for coffee, and then asks if she can give her the sample of the perfume to give to her sister. She says that she can't give it to her because she's busy, but she tells her sister that she'll have time to look through the drawings. She asks if he needs her for something, and she says she can. He thanks her, and tells her not to worry about it, because he'll get back to her soon. He also tells her that he'd like her to continue drawing, and that she should pay attention to him next time. He wonders if he's just normal, and wonders why he is in the third floor printing room. He's been confused for a long time, and he actually believed that she was calm in her reactions to others, but now he believes that he was just working hard. He thinks that he finally got the evidence that he had been waiting for. Lijia really cares for him, he says, and will treat him with milk tea when he gets back. She'll treat him well.
