"Is he coming?"
"He's coming, he's coming. Ruan, I see him. He's sitting in the back row on the right, with his friends!" Qiao Chuchu answered delightfully.
Jiang Ruanruan looked up and saw the familiar handsome figure. She let out a long sigh of relief and silently cheered herself up.
"You can do it, Jiang Ruanruan. Today, you will let all the teachers and students in the school witness the happiest ending of your love story!"
Seeing that there were fewer and fewer people waiting in front of her to receive the diploma on the stage, she was so nervous that her heart was racing.
After five years of a relationship with Sun Zhiming, from school uniform to wedding dress, the big day finally came.
Today was their graduation ceremony, and it would also be their proposal ceremony.
As soon as they were together, Sun Zhiming had made a promise to her. She carried that sentence with her, always. He said, "Everyone said that the graduation season was the break-up season, but we will never be like that. On the day of graduation, I would propose to you, in front of all the teachers and students, to let everyone share our love story!"
To think of it, she couldn't hold back her laughter.
What's more, she found several times that Sun Zhiming was searching for diamond rings on his mobile phone.
Sure enough, he was going to fulfill his romantic promise at the graduation ceremony!
Jiang Ruanruan was so nervous that her palms were almost sweating. She forced herself to calm down and walked to the stage. She shook hands with the principal and took the diploma. Then, different from the other students who got off the stage immediately, she stood still, turned around, and faced the audience.
"Hello, everyone! I'm sorry. I'd like just a minute of your time!" Jiang Ruanruan said in a slightly higher voice with a bright smile on her face. The students under the stage suddenly felt a little confused.
She handed the cap and diploma to Qiao Chuchu, who was next to her, and then untied her gown.
Inside was a white wedding dress!
It was a white silk off-the-shoulder wedding dress, without any extra decorations. It looked so simple. With her low ponytail, it was not very gorgeous, to be honest.
But seeing the cheerful smile on her face, who could say that she was not a beautiful bride?
Jiang Ruanruan took a deep breath. Although that process had been practiced in her mind countless times, her brain had been blank because of happiness when things were about to come to an end.
She thought that Sun Zhiming secretly bought diamond rings and wanted to give her a surprise. She also wanted to give her lover a surprise—to wear a wedding dress to attend the graduation ceremony, and she would take the initiative to propose!
Jiang Ruanruan was not an outgoing person. Most of the time, she did not know how to express her love for Sun Zhiming.
But this time, she went all out! Because the person she loved was so good that he was worth it.
"Sun Zhiming!" She cupped her hands around her mouth, "Are you willing to fulfill your promise and let us walk from the scholar uniform to the wedding dress?"
The crowd burst into an uproar!
When everyone understood what had happened, they immediately began to make a fuss.
"Sun Zhiming! Say yes to her!"
The professors on the stage also smiled at each other and left the floor for this brave girl.
On the right side of the auditorium, a man stood up.
Everyone turned to look at him. The buzzing gradually stopped, and the auditorium became quiet.
"Thank you for your applause. I do intend to propose to my beloved girl today." Sun Zhiming's voice was so calm that it made Jiang Ruanruan feel a little strange.
"But it's not the girl on the stage."
As soon as he finished speaking, the girl who had been sitting beside him stood up.
She was also exquisite, but her delicate hairstyle with a gorgeous diamond tiara on it was a little out of tune with the dark gown.
With a smug smile on her face, the woman also untied her gown, inside which was also a wedding dress!
This was an extremely dazzling wedding dress. It was also off-the-shoulder. However, this one was completely different from the one on Jiang Ruanruan. This one, which had been decorated with countless handmade crystals from the upper part, spread from the dense to sparse, to the gauze skirt below, forming the effect of the falling stars. All the girls who saw this wedding dress took a deep breath.
Only Jiang Ruanruan didn't. Her mind was blank, and her whole body began to sweat. She was probably the only person in the room who was not attracted by this wedding dress.
She didn't know what was going on. She just felt short of breath, and her hand, which was holding the hem of her skirt, trembled slightly.
"No, he must have made a mistake. Haha, it's true that he has a poor eyesight recently. He can't recognize his girlfriend?" thought Jiang Ruanruan.
The graduates around them were confused. They only thought that they had really met a good show today. Who is the true bride?!
Jiang Ruanruan's rosy cheeks had completely lost its color, and her body trembled as if she would faint at any time.
Her heart was bleeding, but her tone was pretending to be relaxed. "You know, I'm here! How stupid are you, Zhiming? How can you mistake her for your bride?"
She had known him for eight years and been in love with him for five years. They had gone through the best years of youth and supported each other all the way to this day. She did not believe that he would betray her! Also, she did not believe that he would embarrass and humiliate her in front of all the teachers and students at the school!
Sun Zhiming's face was gloomy, and his eyes avoided her. He didn't dare to look at her. After a long while, he said with difficulty, "Excuse me, I'm sorry that—"
"Why? What are you sorry for? I don't know what you're talking about."
Jiang Ruanruan trembled all over, and even her lips were trembling. She said in a hoarse voice, "You are joking with me, aren't you? This is your prank, isn't it?"
She suddenly smiled with tears in her eyes. "You want me to never forget this moment and cherish you more, don't you? Although you scared me, I forgive you."
She looked at the woman in the wedding dress. "Hello, miss. My boyfriend invited you to play a prank, didn't he?"
The woman did not answer. She directly took Sun Zhiming's arm intimately and looked directly at Jiang Ruanruan.
"Sorry, this is my fiance. Can you stop pestering us like a crazy woman? Honey, do you know her?"
Seeing the woman's appearance, Jiang Ruanruan was so surprised that she couldn't say anything. She turned out to be the eldest daughter of the Mu family, Mu Yourui!
"I need an explanation for this." Jiang Ruanruan forced herself to calm down.
Sun Zhiming avoided her eye contacts and finally asked, "Who are you?"
