Ch. 10 Text messages
Jiang Juan’s invitation plan was unsuccessful, but this did not affect his good mood as Xie Jingxian did not reject his friend request.
Jiang Juan opened Xie Jingxian’s circle of friends and found that it was empty, which was also expected.
After flipping through the WeChat for a while, there was nothing else to see. Jiang Juan was about to quit, but suddenly thought of something and paused. He swiped his fingers and opened his account.
Young people are naturally inseparable from the Internet. After Jiang Juan transmigrated, he changed the so-called avatar of the original owner, but he didn’t care about the original owner’s circle of friends.
As soon as he entered, he saw a selfie in front of him. Jiang Juan saw himself smoking a cigarette, with long hair over his ears, and a string of stud earrings hanging from his ears. It looked sparkling.
As narcissistic as he was, he never knew that his face could be so ugly.
Jiang Juan looked down and saw that the original owner’s circle of friends was full of all kinds of middle school tyrants and gangsters. His scalp became numb, he endured goose bumps, and immediately deleted those friends.
It’s a pity that the frequency of the original owner posting on Moments was too high. Jiang Juan didn’t understand why he had so many things to post. It’s quite annoying to delete it, so he directly changed the setting, so that the posts will be invisible to the circle of friends for three days.
After dealing with the bad circle of friends, Jiang Juan thought about it, and then opened Xu Rang’s circle of friends.
Xu Rang’s WeChat name was Invincible God of War. Jiang Juan scrolled through his account for a while, and finally came to the conclusion that Xu Rang and the original owner were indeed good brothers, a perfect match.
Compared with the original owner and Xu Rang posts, Ye Pei was much more normal.
Ye Pei’s avatar is a green leaf with water droplets. His circle of friends is not as bis as the original owner and Xu Rang’s. He posts once in a while, mostly about his own daily life.
After seeing enough, Jiang Juan threw the phone back onto the table. He turned his head and glanced at the other side, and saw Xie Jingxian doing the test paper. He also picked up a pen and started solving a paper.
After the relationship with Xie Jingxian eased a little, Jiang Juan’s pursuit in this life became very simple – to study, to ensure that Xie Jingxian (that is, himself) would not be injured and not go hungry, and then wait for the arrival of the female protagonist. Live a safe and stable life, and then leave this world to go home.
Xie Jingxian rejected Jiang Juan’s invitation to have lunch together, and Jiang Juan also didn’t insist any more, but he brought two breakfasts for the self-study, the next morning.
Jiang Juan had observed that Xie Jingxian went to school early every day and had time to eat the breakfast that he brought. In order to prevent Xie Jingxian from returning his breakfast, he brought two people’s portion, and he didn’t eat it at home.
The classroom is a place to study, but Jiang Juan didn’t care about it, and placed the food on Xie Jingxian’s table. He asked his aunt to prepare shrimp dumplings, egg custard, and vermicelli tofu buns. In addition, there was millet porridge – nourishing the stomach.
These taste good and it doesn’t have a heavy flavor.
Looking at the sumptuous breakfast on the table, Xie Jingxian did not refuse, but after eating it with Jiang Juan, he told him that there is no need to do it again.
Although Jiang Juan had not been here for a long time, he was still suffering from the hunger. Now after seeing Xie Jingxian eating breakfast, he believes that he will have a comfortable morning, and hence is in a good mood.
Jiang Juan pursed his lips and said, “Okay. I won’t bring it. Let’s go out to eat together, how about it?”
Xie Jingxian tidied up the lunch box and looked at Jiang Juan without speaking.
The corners of Jiang Juan mouth flattened. He looked at Xie Jingxian with a hint of helplessness and compromise in his eyes, “Okay, then you remember to eat well, and I will supervise you.”
The two of were them were sitting alone in the back. Students of Class 2, especially the students in the back row who listened to the conversation between the two of them couldn’t help but think of the red thread on the school forum.
As if realizing something, they shuddered, wondering if they was crazy, but thought that the guess of the original poster might be true.
What the hell!
How is this possible!
Jiang Juan did what he said, and did not bring breakfast for Xie Jingxian , but he would send Xie Jingxian a message every morning to remind him not to forget to eat breakfast.
Perhaps it was the effect of Xie Jingxian’s threat that day, those students from No. 3 Middle School didn’t bother them anymore, they seemed to disappear all of a sudden. In the blink of an eye, it’s Friday, and the week has passed without any accident.
Jiang Juan was in a good mood this week, but Xu Rang was a little annoyed and kept wondering if Jiang Juan had fallen in love with Xie Jingxian.
Jiang Juan was so annoyed by his continuous rambling, that he dug out a book of past year questions papers of college entrance examination and pressed Xu Rang to do it.
Xu Rang was really through and through ruffian, as soon as the school started he went to start a fight. But he was held back by Jiang Juan and after being scolded for the entire night self-study lesson, he finally became honest.
Except for the evening self-study, Jiang Juan didn’t even see Xu Rang’s shadow, not even during recess and breaks.
Xu Rang didn’t want stay in the class, in fear that Jiang Juan would force him to study again. He went to Ye Pei to complain about Jiang Juan’s recent stunts. Not only was his enthusiasm for learning still high, but he also made friends with Xie Jingxian.
Ye Pei cheerfully heard the words, and said it was good. He was a sophomore in high school, so it was time to be serious, and invited Xu Rang to study hard together.
Xu Rang felt that the good days are over. How could all of his good buddies behave as if possessed by demons.
On the weekend, Jiang Juan woke up late, and when he opened his eyes, it was nine o’clock in the morning. He touched the phone placed on the bedside table, and habitually harassed Xie Jingxian.
Jiang Juan: Morning, remember to have breakfast.
Except for the day he added him as friend, Xie Jingxian never replied to any of his texts, and seemed to ignore Jiang Juan’s reminder to eat breakfast.
After Jiang Juan sent the message, he threw his phone aside, he knew that he won’t be receiving Xie Jingxian’s reply anyway. He just thought that if he continuously read the same message, Xie Jingxian might remember to eat.
When Jiang Juan washed up and finished the breakfast, and took out his mobile phone, he found that Xie Jingxian had replied to him.
Xie Jingxian: It’s getting late
These three simple words made Jiang Juan feel good. At this moment, Jiang Juan was sitting cross-legged on the chair, while watching math lecture online on the tablet in front of him.
Although Jiang Juan has always been a self-proclaimed scholar, but after working for a few years, all the knowledge he has learned has long been returned to the teacher. If he wants to get good grades in the first monthly test, he can only hurry up and make up for the forgotten knowledge.
Jiang Juan turned his pen, and suddenly felt a hunger pang. He had just eaten breakfast, so naturally he couldn’t be hungry.
This kid didn’t eat breakfast again.
At this moment, Jiang Juan was not as angry as he was at first, but felt a little helpless. He put down his pen and tapped on the keyboard of his mobile phone.
Jiang Juan: Haven’t you eaten breakfast again? Hurry up…
While Jiang Juan was sending the text, he glanced up and saw that several WeChat records on the chat interface were all him telling Xie Jingxian to eat well, and his brows were wrinkled. He said in his heart that he(JJ) is not his(XJ) mother, he doesn’t need to worry about him. But if he doesn’t worry, Xie Jingxian will continue to ignore his hunger and he will suffer along with him.
Jiang Juan deleted the words in the chat box one by one, then exited the chat interface with Xie Jingxian, searched for a few articles, and forwarded it to Xie Jingxian with a serious face.
Yun Shui Jian is a coffee shop located in the city center, but contrary to ones expectations the environment here is quiet and elegant. Soothing music is being played in the background, which helps calm people’s hearts.
In the box, Xie Jingxian was wearing a white T-shirt and jeans. No matter whether his age or his clothes, he looked out of place here, but his cold eyes and elegant temperament was very suitable for this place.
Opposite Xie Jingxian sat a man in a suit and leather shoes. The man was about thirty years old, with a pair of rimless glasses on the bridge of his nose, showing a bit of shrewdness.
The man said something in a low voice. There was no expression on Xie Jingxian’s face, but if you look closely, you will find a trace of impatience in his eyes, and just at this moment, the phone in his pocket vibrated.
There are not many people who know Xie Jingxian’s contact information and will send him a message. There was no one before, but now there is one.
When he opened it, it turned out to be Jiang Juan, and the content was still the same, reminding him not to forget to eat breakfast.
Xie Jingxian heard the annoying voice of the man in the suit, his cool eyes swept over the message Jiang Juan sent, then moved his fingertips and typed a few words.
Xie Jingxian: It’s getting late.
After about ten minutes, there was a reply. Jiang Juan didn’t say anything, only sent a series of links.
Jiang Juan: Share [Shocked! It’s so scary to skip breakfast! ]
Jiang Juan: Share [He often skips breakfast, and later he…]
Jiang Juan: Share [There are many disadvantages of skipping breakfast, this is the most painful one! ]
Xie Jingxian looked at the shared links. Jiang Juan’s always casually smiling face and those black eyes appeared in his mind, and he couldn’t help but chuckle.
The man in the suit on the opposite side paused, Xie Jingxian put the phone upside down on the table, and finally looked at the man on the opposite side.
The man in the suit pushed his glasses up and looked at Xie Jingxian with some doubts, “Mr. Xie?”
Xie Jingxian said, “Sorry, I’m a little hungry, do you mind if I eat something?”
The man in the suit said hurriedly, “ Of course I don’t mind.” He rang the bell, called the waiter over, and said at the same time, “I was careless, I forgot that you haven’t eaten yet.”
Xie Jingxian shook his head, typed a few words on the phone, and sent it.
Xie Jingxian: Got it.
