Chapter 3:- System
As Xie Jingxian returned to his seat, the classroom fell into a dead silence.
Everyone in the class knew about Jiang Juan’s temper, and being ignored like this- especially being ignored by Xie Jingxian, one could imagine the consequences. They were ready for Jiang Juan to go crazy.
Bai Guang, who was sitting in front of Xu Rang looked horrified. As his eyes behind the lens flashes, he leaned forward, with his arms resting on the table, and butt hovering above the chair.
Jiang Juan had no doubt that the child would rush to the office to find the teacher the moment he got up.
Jiang Juan didn’t move, but Xu Rang, who was sitting besides him, was very dissatisfied and said, “Hey, this kid, what are you pulling a long face for, I…”
As soon as Xu Rang moved, Bai Guang looked like he was ready for a for a 100 meters sprint, with one foot already outside his desk ready for action. Behind him, Jiang Juan lazily said, “Don’t move.”
Bai Guang’s thoughts of running were pinned to the spot by those light and fluttering words. Jiang Juan grabbed Xu Rang’s back collar and pressed him to the seat.
Jiang Juan patted Xu Rang’s shoulder, “Don’t look for trouble.”
Bai Guang breathed a sigh of relief, it turned out that he was not talking to him.
Xu Rang was held down by Jiang Juan and couldn’t move, so he turned his head and reasoned with Jiang Juan, aggrievedly saying, “When was I looking for trouble? Brother Juan, since he ignored you, I will help you vent your anger.”
Xu Rang was in poor health when he was a child. No one wanted to play with him because of his poor health, afraid that they would end up causing trouble for themselves, only Jiang Juan was bold enough. He didn’t dislike him, and was willing to play with him.
Although Jiang Juan always bullied Xu Rang when he was a child, Xu Rang was a fool. He was grateful that Jiang Juan was willing to be his friend and did not remember his bullying.
Later, as he got older, Xu Rang’s health got better. Looking at his present healthy appearance, it’s hard to imagine that he used to be very sick as a child.
In Xu Rang’s heart, he had long regarded Jiang Juan as a family member, so he could not bear to see Jiang Juan suffer even a little grievance. When later in the book, Jiang Juan’s actions became crazier, Xu Rang would still help him even if he knew that he was committing a crime.
Jiang Juan, who knew everything, knew what Xu Rang was like, but the others didn’t. They all thought that Xu Rang was trying to curry favor with him and being his lackey.
But in fact, they all misunderstood. Xu Rang only knew brotherhood, and nothing else.
Jiang Juan looked into Xu Rang’s eyes and said, “I’m not angry.”
What’s wrong with being angry? The original owner, Gao Yi, and Xie Jingxian already have a deep hatred. Good thing that Xie Jingxian didn’t take it to heart what he said just now. Schadenfreude joy over some harm is not quite bad.
It’s his mouth that is to blame. Next time, he must control himself and try not to have any intersection with Xie Jingxian.
Xu Rang’s eyes widened, as if he didn’t know who the person beside him was. Jiang Juan felt tired, was it that his tone was not sincere enough, or were his eyes not gentle enough?
In order to sound more convincing, Jiang Juan raised the corner of his mouth and repeated himself, “I’m really not angry.”
Xu Rang obviously didn’t believe it. The class was still quiet, giving birth to a mystifying silence.
Jiang Juan snorted, what kind of weird class atmosphere is this? After staying in this kind of environment for two years, can I really be in the mood to study hard? And not just be depressed.
Just when Jiang Juan was about to speak again, a tall, thin and handsome boy sitting in the front row stood up.
The boy’s gentle eyes swept across the class, and finally fell on Jiang Juan. He smiled and said, “It’s fine if you are not angry, everyone here is a classmate. Let’s help, unite and love each other.
This person’s name is Wang Tuo, and is the monitor of Class 2. Wang Tuo has a good family background, academic performance as well as good manners. He looks like a bookish person but is a very responsible.
Since entering the first year of high school, Wang Tuo has tried his best to resolve the conflict between Jiang Juan and Xie Jingxian, always wanting his classmates to be tied together, but unfortunately he never succeeded.
However, Wang Tuo has a good temperament. He is not arrogant in victory, and discouraged in defeat.
Wang Tuo’s voice fell, and the classroom became even more quiet , no echoes, no cheers. Everyone was silent, while their eyes couldn’t help glancing at Jiang Juan and Xie Jingxian.
No matter how big of a heart Wang Tuo has, standing there and getting ignored by so many people, he was obviously very embarrassed as if wanting to find a crack in the ground to jump in.
Pop, pop, pop.
It was Jiang Juan who broke the weird atmosphere. He smiled and said, “The class leader said it well, us classmates should really help each other. Well said.”
The silence still continued, but compared to before, it is already very good.
Wang Tuo stood there, staring at Jiang Juan’s bright eyes.
This is not the first time Jiang Juan has responded to Wang Tuo, but it is the gentlest one. Wang Tuo seemed to see the hope of Unity in Class 2, as his eyes suddenly lit up.
Jiang Juan murmured, “His thoughts are quite bold.” Immediately after that, he raised his lips. The people in this class are quite interesting.
Jiang Juan has a handsome appearance. After he took off his fancy clothes and wore on his school uniform, he gave clean and cheerful feeling. In addition, he now has a smile on his face which makes him look very gentle. He looks like the little brother next door.
Everyone temporarily forgot his bad behavior of the past, and now that the atmosphere in the class is slowly becoming good, some of the more lively students in the class began to talk and joke with Jiang Juan.
Jiang Juan was determined to change the impression of the original owner in the minds of the classmates, and was hence very cooperative. For a time, the atmosphere of the Class 2 was very harmonious.
Xie Jingxian sat in the corner, watching Jiang Juan’s performance coldly, without any intention of joining in.
At ten o’clock in the evening, the evening self-study was over.
Jiang Juan closed his exercise book, picked up the school uniform, put it on, and kicked his deskmate: “Get up. Let’s go back.”
Xu Rang, who was sprawled on the table half-dead, immediately jumped up when he heard that he could go back. He stretched his limbs and saw that Jiang Juan had a set of math papers in his pocket, which he seemed to be bringing back to complete.
Xu Rang was very curious in his heart, “Brother Juan, it’s been several days now, how come your learning momentum is getting stronger and stronger?”
This is unscientific!
Jiang Juan snorted after hearing him. While scratching his hair Xu Rang asked, “Didn’t you say that you feel dizzy when you read a book? How are you still fine?”
Jiang Juan glanced at Xu Rang, he had graduated from a prestigious university, and his work was even better. It can be said that since childhood, he has always been someone else’s childJust like when our parents say, look at our neighbor’s/friend’s son/daughter, and then look at you.. Now that he is here, he will not let himself be a scumbag.
His pride would not allow him to do so.
It’s just that it’s been a long time since his graduation, and almost all the knowledge that he has learned before, has long been returned to the teacher. Now it’s quite tiring to make up for it bit by bit.
Jiang Juan glanced around, everyone was almost gone, and even Xie Jingxian’s seat was empty. He stopped dawdling and left the classroom with Xu Rang.
Halfway through, Jiang Juan suddenly felt a sharp pain in his right hand, and the pain made him cry out in a low voice.
If he felt the burning pain in the back of his hand throughout the evening self-study, now his right hand feels as if it is smashing heavily on something. The key is that the burning pain is still there, not to mention the sharp pain he is feeling right now.
Xu Rang was taken aback. Seeing Jiang Juan’s face turning pale, he couldn’t help asking, “Brother Juan, what’s wrong with you? Your face looks so pale.”
The thoughts that Jiang Juan had forcibly suppressed in the cafeteria came up again. As if a sudden thought struck him, he turned his head and asked Xu Rang: “Where is Xie Jingxian?”
“Ah?” Xu Rang didn’t expect Jiang Juan to ask about Xie Jingxian at this time, but he still gave the answer immediately, “I heard someone say before that Xie Jingxian seems to be helping at the stall on Qingping Street, and he will go there after the evening self-study, from 10:30 p.m. to 2:30 in the morning.”
Jiang Juan nodded, he forgot that. During the three years of high school Xie Jingxian had been working part-time to earn his living expenses. He thought for a moment and ran out.
Xu Rang was stunned for a while, and quickly took out his mobile phone. While calling Ye Pei, he chased after him.
Qingping Street was not far from Jincheng High School. It was just across two streets. Jiang Juan found Xie Jingxian in an alley not long after walking.
This kid is really fighting with people.
Through the dim light of the street lamp, Jiang Juan could see that Xie Jingxian was surrounded by a group of students. Judging from their school uniforms, they belonged to No. 3 Middle School.
In the distance, Jiang Jian saw one of person in lead pointed at Xie Jingxian and sneered, “You ran away in the morning, this time I will see where you can escape to…”
Jiang Juan looked at Xie Jingxian’s right hand hanging by his side. He fought with these gangsters in the morning? Thinking of the pain on the back of his hand in the morning, an unbelievable thought flooded Jiang Juan’s mind.
Xu Rang, who arrived later, stopped beside Jiang Juan. He also saw Xie Jingxian surrounded at a glance. He looked at Jiang Juan, who had a serious face, he immediately rolled his eyes, and was instantly refreshed.
Xu Rang tied his school uniform jacket around his waist and said with a smile, “Hey, as I said during the evening self-study, Brother Juan, something was wrong with you, which really surprised me. It turns out that you had other plans, but this kid has so many enemies. Let’s go. Let’s go up and help.”
Jiang Juan ignored Xu Rang, as he endured the pain from his right hand, took a step forward, and walked towards Xie Jingxian.
“Hello.” Jiang Juan said to the boys who surrounded Xie Jingxian.
The students of No. 3 Middle School all turned their heads and saw a dense scroll of some papers that looked like practice sheets flying towards them, and smashed straight into the face of the person in lead.
That man staggered back a few steps, covered his nose and snorted, “Damn it, you are courting death.”
Xie Jingxian had already seen Jiang Juan, but he didn’t expect him to do this, so he couldn’t help but feel a little astonished. Not only Xie Jingxian, but even Xu Rang was shocked. He pulled Jiang Juan’s sleeve and said, “Brother Juan, you hacked the wrong person.”
Jiang Juan moved his wrist and smiled, “That’s right, this is outside our school. You are bulling the students of our school, why can’t you look where you are standing?”
Jiang Juan just quickly wanted to deal with these students of the third middle school, so that he would have time to confirm his guess.
Hearing Jiang Juan’s words, Xu Rang was stunned for a moment, and then showed a sudden look of realization.
That’s right, whatever kind of conflict there is between the students of their school, and how to fight it, is the matter of their school and should be done behind the closed doors.Just like how fights in the families should be taken care of behind the doors of their house and not in front of the world. How can the people of Jincheng High School allow people from other schools to bully their students? Wasn’t that a slap on the face of Jincheng High School? How could this be tolerated?
Relying on the number of people on the opposite side, they had already rushed towards Jiang Juan.
As soon as Xu Rang called out ‘Brother Juan, let me come’, he saw Jiang Juan beside him moving. Jiang Juan lifted his leg and hit the person’s calf with a steady and precise kick.
As soon as the kick landed, he felt pain in his leg. As for the boy who was kicked, he screamed and fell on the ground.
During the fight, Jiang Juan tired not to show his skills, as Xu Rang was seeing him fight for the first time, and since he is not the original owner, there are evidently differences between their skills.
Before Xu Rang could even adjust his mood, Jiang Juan grabbed the arm of another guy who rushed over, twisted his hand behind his back, and pressed him to the ground.
He didn’t expect Jiang Juan to be so fierce, as Xu Rang excitedly clapped his hands while shouting, “Wohh! Brother Juan is amazing!”
Jiang Juan chuckled softly as he said, “Even ten of these weak chickens are not enough for me to warm up.”
Xu Rang rushed up to him with enthusiasm and said, “I also want to help.”
Xie Jingxian was also a tough one, not to mention Jiang Juan and Xu Rang, the boys from the No.3 Middle School only said one sentence and ran away, “You wait for me.”
Jiang Juan, Xie Jingxian and Xu Rang were the only ones left on the scene.
Xie Jingxian picked up his jacket which was fallen on the ground, paused, and said to Jiang Juan, “Thank you.”
The trouble with the students from No. 3 Middle School started when Xie Jingxian was working partime during the summer vacation.He knew in his heart that this matter had nothing to do with Jiang Juan. Although he didn’t know why Jiang Juan appeared here, but, he still helped him.
Xie Jingxian wanted to leave after saying thank you, but he couldn’t as Jiang Juan foot suddenly blocked his way.
Xie Jingxian raised his eyebrows and looked at Jiang Juan quietly.
Xu Rang hummed beside him, “Don’t think that my brother Juan is helping you, now that those people are gone, then the matter between us should be addressed…”
Before Xu Rang’s provocative words were even finished, he saw something that made his eyes go wide. The majestic Jiang Juan, at this time, carefully stretched out two fingers and pinched Xie Jingxian’s right cheek.
Xu Rang, “…” The unspoken words got choked in his throat, as his eyes widened. What is this situation, Brother Juan is teasing Xie Jingxian?
Jiang Juan’s behaviour was really unexpected, but Xie Jingxian didn’t dodge it. He just narrowed his eyes, as his eyes were filled with a look of imminent danger.
Jiang Juan didn’t notice the change in Xie Jingxian’s expression. As he felt the faint pain in the same position as Xie Jingxian’s cheek on his own, his eyes widened slightly.
His guess turned out to be true!
But why, can he feel the pain on Xie Jingxian’s body?
Immediately afterwards, he realized that this was a world within a book, and that he could not explain it scientifically why he traveled here.
Jiang Juan’s expression changed, and at this moment, an electronic voice sounded in his mind, [Congratulations to the host, the symbiosismutually beneficial relationship between two people/groups. system is officially activated. The system is activated——]
Jiang Juan frowned, what is this sound?
|↑1||joy over some harm|
|↑2||Just like when our parents say, look at our neighbor’s/friend’s son/daughter, and then look at you.|
|↑3||Just like how fights in the families should be taken care of behind the doors of their house and not in front of the world.|
|↑4||mutually beneficial relationship between two people/groups.|
