Ch. 33 Xie Jingxian Is Angry
Xia Qing’s state has not been very good these days. She frequently goes to the bathroom, and it is said that the same is true when she is in the exam room during the quiz.
The head teacher Ren Tao was very worried, and asked her what was wrong.
Xia Qing shook her head and said it was fine, she could persevere.
A few days later, when the exam results came out, Jincheng’s teachers wanted to see a fierce battle for the first grade between the newly transferred topper and the school’s topper. What they didn’t expect was that Xia Qing’s performance to be so abnormal. Her grades were only ranked in the lower middle of the grade.
When the test papers were handed out, Xia Qing stared at her score for a long time without moving. She seemed to be unable to accept it and was stunned.
Ren Tao valued Xia Qing, a good seedling very much, and comforted her, “It doesn’t matter, your school and Jincheng’s curriculum is not the same, besides your leg injury has delayed you for a while, and you were not feeling well during the exam. Wait for the next exam, okay.”
Xia Qing raised her head to look at Ren Tao, and then looked at her score, and couldn’t help crying. As soon as she cried, everyone panicked, especially Xu Rang, who hurriedly borrowed tissues from everywhere, and didn’t know how to comfort her. After holding it for a long time, he only asked what happened to her.
Xia Qing held the test paper and cried, her tears falling like a torrential rain, “I have never done so well in a test.”
Ren Tao: ?
Students in the class: ?
Looking at the puzzled eyes of everyone, Xia Qing realized that what she said was wrong and quickly changed her words, “No, I have never done so badly in the exam. Why are the scores so bad, woo woo woo.”
The students in class just thought that she was hit too hard and said the wrong thing.
Regardless of whether they did well or not, the students in Class 2 learned to have fun in the midst of high-pressure studies. On weekdays, they always devote themselves to studying hard. After the exam, they will find a time to relax, or watch a movie, have dinner, or go shopping.
A girl invited Xia Qing to go out for a walk together on the weekend. Xia Qing’s eyes lit up at first, but then don’t know what she thought of, the light in her eyes dimmed, as she bit her lips and said, “Go on, I still have to study.”
The girl smiled and said, “Life should be a combination of work and rest. You can’t study all the time, but also have to relax occasionally. You’re always cooped up in the classroom, won’t you be bored?”
Someone next to her also tried to pursue her.
Xia Qing seemed to be a little shaken, but after struggling for a while, she still shook her head, “I love learning, and learning makes me happy.” Then she took a breath and added aggrievedly, “If I don’t study for a day, I will feel uncomfortable. “
The girl who invited Xia Qing: “…”
The classmate next to her: “…”
Since Xia Qing refused so much, it was not good for the girl to push her too hard. So she only asked her to pay attention to her body and not be too tired. If she wanted to go out, she could call her at any time.
Xia Qing nodded, looking at the back of the girl leaving, a flash of heartache went pass her eyes, but no one noticed. Xia Qing quickly calmed down and immersed herself in the book.
Time passed quickly, and in a blink of an eye, it was December. The weather was getting colder and colder, and Jiang Juan was still thinking about the little stray cat in the school grove, so he often took Xie Jingxian to feed it…
That afternoon, Xie Jingxian was called by Aunt Rong to help her children with their homework. Jiang Juan had nothing to do, so he took a can of lunch meat to the school’s grove.
When he arrived, he found that someone was already there.
Standing in the grove was a girl, wearing a beige turtleneck sweater and jeans, with smooth black hair tied behind her head, looking very gentle.
This girl was none other than the female protagonist Xia Qing.
A few months later, Xia Qing’s leg injury has healed. Apart from not being able to exercise vigorously, there is no problem in walking to and from school by herself.
He saw Xia Qing squatting on the ground at this time, and there was a chubby little civet cat in front of her. This civet cat is the one that Xie Jingxian often feeds. As the time passed, it grew a little more.
It was winter now, and the leaves on the tree faded from green and turned yellow, and then finally fell to the ground. As far as the eye can see, there is a desolate scene, but because of the appearance of the girl, it glows up with warmth and beauty.
Jiang Juan looked left and right, and found that Xia Qing was the only one in the forest. It’s is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, it’s a pity that Xie Jingxian was not here.
Xia Qing has been transferred to Jincheng for almost two months, and nothing has happened between Xie Jingxian and her but another person unexpectedly got involved.
A man said as he ran towards her, “Xia Qing, I’m back.”
Hearing the familiar voice, Jiang Juan was stunned, looked over, and found that it was Xu Rang. He was carrying a bag of snacks in his hand, apparently buying food for the kitten.
As Xu Rang appeared suddenly, the little civet cat screamed in fright, and scratched its paw on the back of Xia Qing’s hand.
Xia Qing said “Oops”, and in that time the little civet cat had disappeared.
Seeing that Xia Qing was hurt, Xu Rang hurriedly quickened his pace. He stepped forward quickly, and as soon as he looked up, he saw Jiang Juan standing not far away. Xu Rang was stunned for a while, and called out Brother Juan.
As he was discovered, Jiang Juan couldn’t pretend to be a transparent person anymore. He stepped forward and saw Xia Qing standing up, holding her wrist in one hand. There were clear scratches on the back of her hand, and blood was oozing out of it.
Xu Rang said distressedly, “It’s bleeding.” He fumbled around in his pocket, and finally found a tissue.
Xia Qing took it and thanked him softly.
Jiang Juan looked at Xia Qing’s wound and frowned, “Go to the epidemic prevention station to get vaccinated.”
“Ah?” Xia Qing’s face turned pale, “Take an injection?” As soon she heard that, Xia Qing had rejection written all over her face.
“Can I not go?” Xia Qing said, “It’s just a small injury.”
Jiang Juan said, “You have to go.”
Hearing Jiang Juan’s firm tone, Xia Qing frowned and finally sighed, “Okay.”
Xu Rang was both guilty and distressed, “If I had known, I wouldn’t have pulled you out, and you would not have got bitten by a cat, and suffer this pain.”
Jiang Juan glanced at Xu Rang in surprise. It turned out that Xu Rang had brought Xia Qing here today. It was Xu Rang who saw that she had been studying in the classroom everyday, and was worried that she would be bored so he persuaded her to come out for a walk.
There were not many people on the campus at noon. The two of them were wandering around, and unknowingly came to the grove where they met the stray cat that Xie Jingxian often fed.
Xia Qing stayed here and didn’t move. Xu Rang went to buy some snacks to feed the cat. No one expected that Xia Qing would be scratched by the kitten.
Jiang Juan originally thought that Xu Rang will be sending Xia Qing to the epidemic prevention station for vaccination, and he would go back to the classroom to read some books. He didn’t expect Xu Rang to answer the phone, and then pull him aside in embarrassment, “Brother Juan, my mother asked me to send some things to my aunt, and she will kill me if I don’t go there. You, can you help me send Xia Qing to the epidemic prevention station?”
He folded his hands together and made a please gesture.
Jiang Juan looked at Xu Rang, and then looked at Xia Qing who was staring at the wound next to him, lowered his voice and asked, “Are you serious?”
Xu Rang blushed, and then nodded very solemnly.
Jiang Juan let out a long sigh and then patted Xu Rang’s shoulder, “Okay, I understand, you can go.”
Xu Rang smiled and told Xia Qing that there was an urgent matter at home, so he had to go first.
Looking at Xu Rang’s back, Jiang Juan thought, what a silly boy, her final destination is not you, you must not fall too deep.
Jiang Juan accompanied Xia Qing to the epidemic prevention station to get vaccinated. It could be seen that Xia Qing was very afraid of injections. When she returned to school, her eyes were still red, but she didn’t cry.
Jiang Juan looked amused. The two walked towards the classroom, but Xia Qing suddenly stopped and said to Jiang Juan, “Wait a second.”
Jiang Juan stood there, watching Xia Qing go to the school’s canteen, and soon saw her come back with two cups of milk tea.
Xia Qing handed a cup to Jiang Juan and said, “Thank you for accompany me to vaccinate today. I’ll invite you to drink milk tea. I just don’t know what flavor you like, but this the one that sells the best.”
Christmas is coming, and the commissary is also ingenious. The cups for milk tea are all red, with Santa Claus and elk printed on it, which looks very festive.
Jiang Juan didn’t reject the milk tea like many boys do, and took it with a smile, “Thank you.”
Xia Qing shook her head with a smile, and there was warmth in her smile.
The two continued to walk forward and came to the front of the teaching building. They happened to meet Xie Jingxian who was coming back, and the three of them stopped at the same time.
Jiang Juan was the first to greet him, “Xie Jingxian, are you done?”
Xie Jingxian’s eyes swept across Xia Qing who was behind Jiang Juan, then looked at Jiang Juan, and finally nodded calmly and turned to go up the stairs.
Jiang Juan sighed and shouted, “Xie Jingxian, wait for me.”
Xie Jingxian’s figure had disappeared before his eyes.
Xia Qing held the milk tea, and said to Jiang Juan with some worry, “He, is he angry?”
Jiang Juan also felt inexplicable. Obviously, Xie Jingxian was not in a good mood today, but he was fine when they ate together at noon.
Jiang Juan thought, could it be that the little doll from Aunt Rong’s house was too stupid, making Xie Jingxian angry? But he had seen the child, chatted together, and even did homework together. Nuonuo is clearly very smart.
Jiang Juan said to Xia Qing, “It’s okay, I’ll go take a look.”
Xia Qing watched Jiang Juan’s back disappear into the corridor, and took a sip of the milk tea. She chewed on the boba, as a light flashed in her eyes. She whispered excitedly, “It seems that I have discovered a great secret.”
When Jiang Juan returned to the classroom, he saw Xie Jingxian reading a book. He walked over and put the untouched milk tea on his seat, “Please drink milk tea.”
Xie Jingxian glanced at the milk tea on the table and said, “I’m not used to drinking it.”
Jiang Juan pushed the milk tea aside and moved closer to Xie Jingxian. He never detoured when talking to Xie Jingxian, and said directly, “Are you in a bad mood? Who makes you angry, tell me, I’ll help beat that person up.”
Xie Jingxian glanced at Jiang Juan and said, “No.”
Jiang Juan thought that he was lying, as he was obviously angry but didn’t want to admit it. No matter how he asked, Xie Jingxian answer was the same.
Jiang Juan saw Xie Jingxian’s perfunctory behavior, and his temper also came up. He stopped pestering Xie Jingxian, sat up straight and took out his phone to play. At a glance, I found that there were two missed calls on it, all from Xie Jingxian.
In addition, there are two WeChat messages, also sent by Xie Jingxian, one saying that he was done with his work, and the other asking where he was.
Jiang Juan was a little stunned, but he didn’t hear the ringtone. When he saw it again, he realized that his phone was on silent.
Jiang Juan held the phone and glanced at Xie Jingxian quietly. He thought that Xie Jingxian was angry with him. He scratched his head a little embarrassedly. In Xie Jingxian’s opinion, he must have felt that he was forgetful and deliberately did not answer his phone.
Tsk, it’s all Xu Rang’s fault. He must get him to treat him to a big meal when he finds time.
Jiang Juan tentatively poked Xie Jingxian with his finger. Xie Jingxian didn’t move, but his eyes floated over.
Jiang Juan’s voice was very soft as he said, “You won’t be angry because I didn’t answer your call, right? Jingxian, you are so stingy.”
T/N: I have setup a Goal on Ko-fi. I’ll do mass releases for both of my novels (TVVSH and DFSRA) once we reach the Goal. I’ll release minimum of 5 chapters for both the Novels (i.e. In total atleast 10 chapters). As for maximum, even I don’t know. It will depend on my stockpile.
If you like my work, please buy me a cup of ☕. It really works as a dose of motivation for me to keep going on.
