Novie is standing outside the school gate waiting for Ken to pick her up. Her class ended early so she texted Ken about the time adjustment.

She sat on the wooden bench under the tree, she put her bag beside her and the test paper on her lap while she tied up her shoulder-length black hair.

Suddenly a strong wind blows and all the test papers flew away, her face went pale and starts picking up the papers.

(Tsk!) she clicked her tongue, exasperated.

She had it arranged alphabetically and now she needs to starts again. She was about to pick the last page when a hand picked it up and handed it to her.

Novie lifted her face and saw the principal, earlier he came to her classroom to inform her about the PTA meeting for the student's parents.

She held his hand and caress it slowly.

"Are you jealous?" she asked teasingly, Ken turned to her with his brows creased.

"Yes, of course" he exclaimed. Novie flattened her expression, she thought Ken would deny it but the man said yes without blinking.

(Hmp) she was planning on teasing him but there was no reason too. The man had admitted it.
