Jiang’s villa, bedroom on the second floor.
Jiang Juan couldn’t remember how he felt when he got home. At this moment, he was sitting on a chair, looking at the blue ball of light floating in front of him, and said with an ugly expression on his face, “Symbiosis system… You mean, I can feel the pain and hunger in Xie Jingxian’s body…”
The blue ball of light spurned around, and Jiang Juan heard a cold electronic voice in his mind “To be exact, host, you can feel Xie Jingxian’s body. All the pain.”
Jiang Juan was dissatisfied, “I can’t feel the pleasure of his body, but I have to accompany him to feel the pain together. Then what if he has an accident…” Jiang Juan frowned, no, this is not the main point.
Jiang Juan was silent for a while, and said, “You brought me into this world? Let me guess, you should have something for me to do.”
Even before the system answered him, he already said, “I am telling you this clearly. I refuse.”
The system asked, “Host, don’t you want to go home?”
Jiang Juan was startled, then suddenly raised his head and asked, “What did you say? I can go back?”
Even after he gained another life, his family, this was something he never dared to think about. He couldn’t imagine how his parents would react and how sad they would be when they learned of his death. The only thing that he can use to comfort himself is to tell his mind to live well in this world.
If he can go back…
The system said: “Since you appeared here, the time of your original world has stopped. When you complete the task, we can trace the time back to the time before your accident, which is a reward for you.”
Jiang Juan’s heart started thumping, going back in time, that to before his accident, that means he can avoid the car accident. He will not die.
Jiang Juan suppressed his thunderously beating heart. He understood that there is no free lunch in the world. He calmed himself down and asked again, “If I still don’t agree, what will happen to me?”
The System replied, “That’s a pity. The contract signing failed, so I can only send you back to your original world.”
Returning to the original world means that he will die.
Jiang Juan thought that it was really simple and crude. He asked the system, why it didn’t show up before, so they could have avoided wasting each other’s time.
The system said that this was a test that it set up. It likes smart people and doesn’t like to be in the company of stupid ones. If you failed the test it sets, then you are not qualified to be his partner. It will kick him back to his original world.
Jiang Juan: It’s quite particular.
It’s not that Jiang Juan hasn’t read the system transmigration novels before, but he didn’t expect those authors to have such imaginative powers, that the things they imagined turned out to be true. In other words, the person who wrote the first system transmigration novel had experienced it himself.
There are two paths in front of you, as long as you are not a fool, you will know what to choose.
Let him protect Xie Jingxian? Let Xie Jingxian feel love and warmth? Jiang Juan thought that it was funny, isn’t this the female protagonist’s job?
When it came to the female protagonist, the system was a little embarrassed, “There is an accident on the heroine’s side, and it will take some time to come to Jincheng High School for the time being.”
Jiang Juan understood that the system monitors the development of these worlds, but it cannot completely control the plot. All he can do is try to put the plot back on track when there is a deviation.
Now that the male protagonist’s data is becoming abnormal, the female protagonist can’t arrive at time.
If this goes on, when the female protagonist comes, he is afraid that the male protagonist would have already lost control, so at this time, someone needs to replace the heroine to give warmth to the male protagonist. Let him not fall into the abyss of despair.
Jiang Juan thought in his heart that even if the female protagonist was delayed by something, it would at most be two or three months, or maybe three or four months. When the female protagonist comes, the male protagonist’s life will be much easier. At that time, he only needs to sit back and eat popcorn while waiting for the male and female protagonist to finish the whole plot, and then he can go home.
In other words, he only needs to “take care” of the male protagonist for a few months. Or maybe he could just take it easy and do nothing.
The original owner acted viciously, which brought very bad campus memories to the male protagonist. Without what the original owner did, Xie Jingxian would not have turned black so quickly, and he would have more trust in human nature.
If this is the case, Jiang Juan’s eyes light up little by little. It’s just that he still has a few concerns.
Jiang Juan looked at the blue ball of light in front of him and said, “You pull in the dead and let us do things for you. If the mission is accomplished, we can go back and get a second life. What about you, why are you doing this?”
He didn’t believe that this creature beyond the human understanding was just doing it for the sake of charity.
The system also didn’t mean to hide it, and said softly, “Let’s put it this way, you humans need food and water to survive, what we need is the happiness of the protagonists in these small worlds, which is the source of our strength and the foundation of our existence. We just take what we need, don’t worry, we have no malicious intentions and will not hurt you.”
Jiang Juan thought about it in his heart, according to the system, they were generated by the huge amount of novels or other things. The happiness of the protagonist in the world generates power, so…
Jiang Juan asked, “Then the people in this world, are they real, or are they just a tool you made for the purpose of gaining power? What am I here? A string of data?”
The System said, “It all depends on how the host feels about it in your own mind.”
Jiang Juan chuckled lightly.
The system kept an eye on Jiang Juan’s change of expression. Seeing his squinted eyes showing an expression of interest, he asked, “Host, if you agree to sign a contract with me, please sign this.”
Jiang Juan saw a copy of the contract appearing in front of him . As he briefly browsed through the contract book, he realized that his task is to guide the male protagonist, so as to prevent him from going down the evil path. After the protagonist finishes the plot and obtains happiness, his mission is completed, and the system will help him return to his original world.
Jiang Juan looked at it carefully, and found no language traps, or in other words, even if there were traps, he had no choice. Jiang Juan raised his hand to sign his name and pressed his handprint.
As if he was afraid that he would regret it, after the fingerprint was pressed, only a “swoosh” was heard, and the contract disappeared.
[Congratulations to the host, the contract was signed successfully.] It is still the same cold electronic voice, but with a tinge of unnatural liveliness, giving people a very strange feeling.
After the contract was signed, the blue ball of light floating in front of Jiang Juan, the system, circled around Jiang Juan’s left wrist, and a men’s watch appeared on his wrist.
It is a well-known luxury brand. This design was recently launched. It is low-key luxurious, which is very suitable for Jiang Juan’s current status as a student.
Jiang Juan raised his eyebrows, it’s aesthetic sense is quite good.
As if it could sense what Jiang Juan was thinking, the System proudly said, “Considering your status as a student, I didn’t choose anything too flamboyant or flashy for you. I am a very humane system, remember to give me five stars when the host’s mission is completed. Please leave a good review.”
Jiang Juan smiled and said, “You want to buy me with just one watch? I’ll see your performance later.”
He tapped the dial on the watch with his finger, and a page appeared in front of him. This page is similar to the online game interface that Jiang Juan has played before.
The column on the left reads
Although it was not written clearly, Jiang Juan knew that this indicates the male protagonist Xie Jingxian’s favor and trust in him. Obviously, the protagonist still has a bad impression of him.
He looked to the right, and it showed the blackening value: 30/100
The story hasn’t even started yet, and the male protagonist’s blackening value is already so high, no wonder the system pulled him in.
At the bottom of the page is the column for items, which contains various items, but unfortunately they are all gray and cannot be taken out temporarily.
The system explained, “When the favorability and trust reaches a certain value, some items in the inventory will be unlocked.”
Jiang Juan snorted and continued reading it further, but, there was nothing special. Just as he was about to close the page, he noticed that at the top of the page was written: Jiang Juan / 088.
The System said, “This is my number, which is equivalent to your name.” Jiang Juan nodded, and then heard 088 continue, “You can also call me by my nickname, 88.”
Jiang Juan rolled his eyes, the System clearly wants him call him Dad. Looks like this system is quite humourous, then he said solemnly, “No, I have decided to give you a nickname, let’s call you, Wang Cai.”
After making the system go speechless, Jiang Juan went to the bathroom to take a shower, dried his hair and climbed into the bed. It was already past midnight.
The pain in his right hand was slowly becoming bearable, but it also meant that Xie Jingxian was still working. He thought that Xie Jingxian should be helping at the food stall at this time, and he couldn’t help but snort, he was really desperate.
Jiang Juan turned off the light, pulled over the quilt, and fell asleep with the pain in his right hand.
The next day, Jiang Juan ate breakfast to go to school, but he felt unbearably hungry even before the first class in the morning was over. Then he remembered that this situation was not the case of the original owner’s body being a rice bucket, but Xie Jingxian, that kid didn’t eat breakfast. .
As he had said before that he would not provoke the male protagonist, Jiang Juan gritted his teeth and endured it, until he couldn’t bear it anymore. Xie Jingxian will probably go to find something to eat after class. But alas, he didn’t, Xie Jingxian stayed in his seat to catch up on sleep between classes.
Jiang Juan has low blood sugar and hence never dared to skip his meals. He had experienced the feeling of starvation before, but now not only was he hungry, but his right hand has also been in pain for a while now, and he is not able to concentrate on his questions.
Finally, Jiang Juan irritably dropped his pen and cursed.
He glanced at Xie Jingxian’s position, and saw the boy lying on the table, as if he had fallen asleep. Jiang Juan endured the hunger until the break time. While chewing on a white rabbit toffee, he got up and went to the canteen to buy a whole bunch of snacks.
As he came upstairs from the canteen with the snacks, Xu Rang leaned on the door frame and probed, “Brother Juan, did you empty the canteen?”
Jiang Juan randomly found a few packets of potato chips from the bag and threw them over. Xu Rang took it in his hands and smiled, “Thank you Brother Juan for feeding my stomach.”
Jiang Juan waved his hand and returned to the classroom with a large bag of snacks. He didn’t go back to his seat, but walked directly to Xie Jingxian.
When Jiang Juan walked in the direction of Xie Jingxian, the classroom suddenly became quiet. Xie Jingxian heard the sound of footsteps stopping in front of his desk, and sat up without a trace of sleepiness in his eyes.
Xie Jingxian’s eyes swept across the snack bag in Jiang Juan’s hand, and then he looked at Jiang Juan, his eyes seemed to be asking, what’s the matter.
Jiang Juan shook the large bag of snacks in his left hand and said, “I accidentally bought too much, so want to share it with my classmates.”
Xie Jingxian swept his eyes across Jiang Juan’s face coolly, without speaking or moving.
Yesterday, during the self-study session Jiang Juan chatted with everyone from Class 2 for a long time. Hence, many people are no longer as afraid of him as they used to be. Seeing him in a good mood today, someone said with a smile, “Brother Juan, everyone here is a classmate, why are you only giving it to Xie Jingxian. I didn’t eat anything the whole morning and was almost starved to death.”
Someone echoed after him, “Yes, yes, we are all classmates, you can’t be partial.”
Jiang Juan took out a bottle of milk tea from the bag as well as a piece of bread and placed it on Xie Jingxian’s table. He handed the rest of the snack bag to the classmate next to him saying, “I bought a lot, take it to share with everyone.”
There was a burst of cheers in the class, and the atmosphere immediately became lively.
Jiang Juan turned his gaze towards Xie Jingxian again, and seeing that he was still sitting motionless, stared at him for a moment, and then raised his lips while leaning over, “What? Are you worried about me poisoning it?”
Due to the close distance, Xie Jingxian could smell the sweet milk fragrance coming from Jiang Juan’s mouth. It was the smell of white rabbit toffee. Normally, no one would associate Jiang Juan with a white rabbit toffee, but the taste unexpectedly matched with him.
Xie Jingxian narrowed his eyes, and his eyes continued to linger on Jiang Juan’s face. Without those messy accessories and costumes, Jiang Juan in school uniform gave people a feeling of a well-behaved and docile student, but when he fought, his eyes would become very sharp.
The classmate next to him who had taken a bite, almost choked to death when he heard Jiang Juan’s words, as the people next to him hurriedly poured water for him.
Regardless of the mess behind him, Jiang Juan picked up the bread on the table, tore the package, and ate half of it in front of Xie Jingxian.
Such a childish provocation…
Xie Jingxian’s original gloomy mood became a little better because of Jiang Juan’s actions. For the first time, he showed a smile in front of Jiang Juan, chuckled lightly and picked up the remaining half of the bread while looking at him. Taking a bite as he looked into Jiang Juan’s eyes, he slowly chewed and swallowed the bread.
