Chapter 1: Transmigrated into the Book
Fengshu Internet Café is located in the back alley of Jincheng High School. The location where it is built is superior, along with the elegant and quite environment. As soon as you step in, you will be surrounded by green leaves and flowers, which makes one feel better.
It’s a pity that most of the students who come here are students, who are addicted to skipping classes or don’t like studying. No one has the patience to appreciate the beauty of this place. They were all immersed in the thrill of fighting in-game battles, because of which one can always hear, unrestrained and excited noises coming from the café.
In this boisterous environment, a youngster in a white t-shirt sitting in the corner of the Internet café has a completely different atmosphere around himself. The computer in front of him was playing an online mathematics class instead of a game.
The boy had donned a pair of black earphones, only showing half of his handsome face. He was watching it very seriously. He didn’t take off the earphones until the video ended, and stood up while massaging shoulders and moving his neck sideways.
A boy about the same age as him, sitting next to him while killing a group of players in the game, noticed the movement of the person beside him. He turned his head to look at him, and asked doubtfully, “Brother Juan, where are you going?”
Jiang Juan took a few steps before answering him, “The bathroom.”
After Jiang Juan left, the boy looked at the paused screen on the computer beside his with a look of pity and admiration in his eyes, and then he turned his attention back to the game and continued scolding his teammates through the headset.
Jiang Juan stood in front of the sink and washed his face with water. He straightened up and shook off the water droplets from his hands. As soon as he looked towards the mirror, he saw the image of a young man facing the sink.
The boy looked around sixteen or seventeen years old, a fair and delicate complexion with warm glowing eyes under his slender eyebrows, high nose bridge and rosy lips. Although he has not yet become a fully grown man, one can already see the shadow of his astounding beauty of the future.
Jiang Juan is very familiar with the person the mirror. It was him, but he was much more immature than he remembered. This was him in his youth.
But, this is not Jiang Juan’s dream, nor did he travel back to the past, this is a world within a book. The boy in the mirror is him, but also not him.
This book is a called “Occupy You”, as you can tell from the name, this is a romance novel, which is very suitable for relaxing or passing the time.
When Jiang Juan was bored in his spare time on the weekends, he randomly opened the recommendation tab of a novel reading application.
The genre of this novel is youth and love. It tells the story of a lonely, cold-tempered male protagonist who, accompanied by the female protagonist, warms up his cold heart, discovers and embraces love.
Although he has a poor background, but as a male protagonist, he is not weak and has a indifferent temperament. Like most novels, the male protagonist is an expert in fighting. If he really decides to be ruthless, even the school bully has to recognise him as his big brother.
The male protagonist not only good at sports, but also has excellent grades, ranking first in the grade all the year round, which is very compelling.
But this can also be understood as the protagonist’s halo. Everything is for the sake of plot.
The story begins when the female protagonist transfers to the high school after one month of the start of the second year of high school, where the male protagonist was studying, due to her parents’ transfer.
The female protagonist surrounds the male protagonist with her gentle and kind nature. Naturally, the male protagonist cannot resist such tenderness. He quickly falls in love with the female protagonist.
Although there are a bit of twists and turns in the story, it was still very enjoyable. The love between the male and female protagonists makes everyone feel envious, the campus life of the students is good, the friendship between the classmates and the relationship between the teachers and the students is very admirable .
“Occupy You” is a sweet love story.
The male protagonist has a cold and indifferent temperament, is unpredictable and always wears a long face. Of course, this is in the eyes of others. In the female protagonist’s view, the male protagonist has always been the embodiment of beauty. He is gentle and kind.
The male protagonist also perfectly maintains a gentle and harmless mask in front of the female protagonist. The attitude of the male protagonist of this book can be explained in one line. My tenderness is only reserved for you.
In the end, the male protagonist completely changed his personality for the female protagonist and became a gentle person.
I have to say that the storyline of this book is a very common troupe, but it is also very popular with the readers. One will always find the readers, who follow the book, screaming in the comment area.
Jiang Juan, on the other hand, transmigrated into the body of the vicious villain in the book. He shares the same name and surname as the villain, but his temperament is completely different.
Jiang Juan is gentle and polite while speaking with others. His temperament is gentle and without any arrogance, which is highly appreciated by people around him. But this is not the case with the Jiang Juan in the book. He was doted on and grew up sheltered since he was a child. He is arrogant and bossy, but has no brains.
In the book, Jiang Juan and the male protagonist are classmates. Because of his jealousy, he always ordered his lackeys to find trouble with the male protagonist at the school. They used to either throw away the male protagonist’s book, put nails in his water glass, or lock him up in an empty room. They used to trap him in the utility room, shame him in front of the crowd, or block his road on the way to school, just to teach him a lesson.
In the book the villain did many vicious things to the male protagonist. In the end, he failed to harm the male protagonist before the college entrance examination, but gained a lifelong disability himself. He met a very miserable end.
Of course, it was something he deserved.
Transmigrated as a vicious villain, Jiang Juan didn’t feel much depressed. On the contrary, he had died in a car accident in his original world, and being here was a second chance at life. Although the original owner was a bit stupid, but when he got here, as long as he didn’t provoke the male lead, he would be safe.
He thought it through.
It’s been two days since I came here. After the initial surprise, Jiang Juan had adapted very well. He continued to eat and sleep well, but his body always felt inexplicable pain.
Especially this morning, the joints of his right fingers were hurting even more, as if they had been punched against a hard wall. He even wondered if his fingers were broken.
But there were no scars on or around his fingers. Under the bright light, his fingers were slender and white, and there were no calluses on his palms. At first glance, they looked like a pair of carefully cultivated hands that had never done any rough work.
Jiang Juan’s family background is similar to that of the villain Jiang Juan in the book, rather even better than the villain Jiang’s family. His mother came from a scholarly family, and his father was from an aristocratic family. Although his parents doted on him, they were still strict with him, where it was necessary.
Moreover, Jiang Juan has been learning martial arts since he was a child. When he was sixteen or seventeen years old, although he looked thin and weak, he was still quite strong, unlike the person in the mirror, who looked very weak, as if he would immediately fall down is a gust of wind flew by.
Jiang Juan quickly found a reason for the inexplicable pain in his body – this young master’s body was way too fragile.
Jiang Juan glanced at the time, the afternoon class was about to start. He went out of the bathroom, picked up his jacket, and said to the youngster sitting next to his spot, “Let’s go.”
Young people of this age are energetic and do not need a afternoon break. But they didn’t want to go home either. After having lunch outside, they went to the Internet café to kill time.
Xu Rang took off his earphones, and when he turned his head, he saw Jiang Juan walking out, and couldn’t help shouting towards him, “Hey, brother Juan, wait for me, this game will be over soon.”
Xu Rang hurriedly came out of the Internet café and saw Jiang Juan standing outside, looking impatient. He glanced at the bright sun outside and said, “Brother Juan, it’s still early. Why are you in such a hurry?”
Jiang Juan said, “Go back and read.”
Xu Rang: “…Okay.”
Although Mother Jiang spoiled her son, Dad Jiang was very strict. Xu Rang expressed his understanding in his heart when he thought of Jiang Juan’s appalling report card in the first semester of high school.
Every time the school starts, under Father Jiang’s coercion, Jiang Juan will buy a lot of tutoring books and pretend to study hard for a few days. This can also be regarded as a customary routine carried out at the start of every semester. As Jiang Juan’s childhood friend, Xu Rang was used to it.
Jiang Juan and Xu Rang walked along the street towards the school, as cicadas continued making noises in the surroundings. Immediately after leaving the Internet Café they started sweating. Instead of going through the gate, they walked along a the tree-lined path.A tree lined road/street has trees on either side.
The sunrays were peeping through the dense tree branches and leaves, casting patches of shadow on the ground. A breeze blew, bringing along with it biting cold air.
Jiang Juan, who was walking in front, suddenly paused his footsteps. There was a young man squatting four to five meters away from him feeding a cat.
There is never a shortage of stray cats and dogs around the school, as the students here like to feed them a lot. They look very chubby and cute as they get to eat to their heart’s content.
The boy squatting on the ground was tall and long-legged, wearing a blue and white school uniform. Under his slender eyebrows were a pair of sharp eyes. His eyes were as black as ink, which made people feel very cold and made people difficult to approach him, but right now, he was lowering his head to feed the cat. When the little cat ate the bread in his hand, there was a faint feeling of tenderness radiating from him.
Hearing the footsteps, the young man turned his head and looked over. Jiang Juan was caught off guard by that pair of dark eyes, and he was slightly startled.
Xie Jingxian is the male protagonist of “Occupy You”. It had been a few days since the start of school, and Jiang Juan had been desperately trying to avoiding being alone with Xie Jingxian. He didn’t expect to meet him here.
Seeing Jiang Juan staring at him, Xie Jingxian frowned slightly. He fed the last piece of bread in his hand to the kitten, and then stood up.
Xie Jingxian’s body is a little thin, but it doesn’t make people feel that he is weak. The exposed arms look thin but full of explosive power.
Compared to Jiang Juan’s silence, Xu Rang, who was behind him, became energetic as soon as he saw Xie Jingxian and his eyes were full of excitement: “Xie Jingxian, it’s really the case of enemies meeting on a narrow road.”
Without even looking at him, Jiang Juan knew what Xu Rang was thinking about- this is a dark, shady and shrouded place, students don’t usually come here around this time, and no danger of being seen by a teacher. It’s just a right place and right time.
Xu Rang rolled up his sleeves and was about to pounce on Xie Jingxian, but Jiang Yan grabbed his school uniform and pulled him back.
Xu Rang was caught off guard, stunned, he turned his head and said, “Brother Juan, what are you holding me for, let go…”
Xie Jingxian glanced at them coldly, turned around and left the grove.
Jiang Juan noticed that Xie Jingxian’s right hand was wrapped with gauze, and there was a trace of blood on it.
Good looks, good grades, liked by girls, but with a very poor family background, such a person will naturally become the object of resentment and bullying by the envious and resentful boys in the school, not to mention that the school is mostly filled with rich second or third generations. On top of that, Xie Jingxian was admitted by his own capabilities, which further aroused their ire.
Without a background or people that he cares about, there is no need to be afraid of those who bully him.
Jiang Yan sighed in his heart. The second year of high school had just started, but he has already started gathering hate. How is he going to endure the next few years?
Xu Rang watched helplessly as Xie Jingxian left in front of him, feeling annoyed, he cried out, “Brother Juan, why did you let him go.”
What a great opportunity.
Jiang Ran let him go: “Then what do you want to do?”
Xu Rang took a step back because of inertia, leaning his back against the tree. He said, “Didn’t you tell us to beat that kid once we see him?”
Jiang Juan thought in his heart, that he was not the idiot who said that.
Jiang Juan immediately denied it, “I didn’t say it.”
Xu Rang said: “That’s what you said, Ye Zi and the others can testify, I…”
Jiang Juan moved his left hand to hold his right wrist, as he slowly started twisting it. At the same time he raised his eyes and stared Xu Rang, while saying word by word, “I. Didn’t. Say. It.”
Seeing the dangerous look in Jiang Juan’s eyes, Xu Rang got goose bumps all over his body, and he immediately gave a dry laugh, “Yes, yes, you didn’t say it. It was I who remembered it wrong.”
Jiang Juan was satisfied, patted Xu Rang on the shoulder, and said earnestly: “Don’t think about fighting all the time, our priority now is to study hard and get into our dream university. We still have a long road ahead.”
Xu Rang gave a bitter smile and furiously nodded his head like a chicken pecking at rice,“…Okay, Brother Juan, I will remember it.”
Jiang Juan nodded his head with satisfaction and glanced at the place where Xie Jingxian was squatting down. After the little kitten had eaten and drank it’s fill, it left. He also didn’t stay there for long, walked along the tree-lined path towards the teaching building.
As Xu Rang followed behind Jiang Juan, his depressed mood was swept aside as he thought in his heart that the school had just begun, he had to let Brother Juan pretend to be a good student for at least two days. When he gets tired of it, he will naturally come back to his old days.
It’s the same every year. When Jiang Juan can’t pretend anymore, he’ll be even more crazier.
Thinking of this, Xu Rang couldn’t help but laugh.
