There were others staring at the two of us. We just met, and Xiuying just had to make a scene about all of this. I wasn’t insulting her. I just stated a fact about where she was from.
I guess she thought I was some spoiled brat.
“Are you deaf, Lisandro?”
“No, I heard you loud and clear.” I responded to her raised voice. “I’m not going to fight you, so there’s no need to make such a big deal out of this misunderstanding.”
“Really? Are you too chicken to get your head kicked in by a girl?” She kept on egging me on the more this lasted.
If only I could just diffuse this situation with something.
Xiuying started to yell at me in Mandarin and even Portuguese of all things. I had no clue what she said, but I was sure that she cussed me out in those languages.
Then an explosion erupted in the gym and people screamed their lungs out.
What just happened?
