Ch. 48 Feelings
After playing two rounds, Jiang Juan neatly kicked Xu Rang and Xia Qing off the line, and didn’t forget to send a message to Xu Rang, reminding him not to think about going online secretly, and that he knew all of his trumpets.
Xu Rang replied, ‘Brother Juan, don’t worry.’ Jiang Juan said in his heart, ‘How can I not worry? Xia Qing, a good school topper seedling, was dragged by you to play games, it’s really outrageous.’
Jiang Juan opened his phone and sent a message to Xu Rang, saying that he was a sophomore in high school and could no longer be the same as before. If he really likes Xia Qing, he should work hard with her and make progress together, instead of pulling her back and taking her down with him.
Xu Rang was silent for a long time. Jiang Juan stared at the phone and frowned slightly. He took another look at the content he had sent, wondering if he was talking too much?
Could that kid’s heart be so fragile?
Jiang Juan shook his head and was about to appease him when Xu Rang sent a photo of a set of math exam papers. There was another sentence after it.
“Brother Juan, I understand. Just reading a book for a day makes my head dizzy. I was just relaxing. I will work hard and take the A university exam with Xia Qing.”
In this world, University A is a well-known university, just like Peking University and Tsinghua University in Jiang Juan’s original world. It was not so easy to get admitted into them.
Jiang Juan couldn’t help sighing when he thought of Xu Rang’s scores at the end of the grade, and Xia Qing’s poor scores wandering around in the middle of the grade.
Okay, at least he had a dream, he decided to stop pouring cold water on him, and replied, “Come on!”
Putting down the phone, Jiang Juan called 088 in his heart. Xia Qing looked really wrong, so he asked 088 if he knew what was going on.
088 said that he was only in charge of Xie Jingxian, and was not clear about Xia Qing. But it gave its reasoning enthusiastically. Maybe it was because of his intervention that the plot changed, or because Xia Qing injured her leg, which caused her grades to drop, or maybe she fell on her head?
Seeing that 088 was becoming more and more unreliable, Jiang Jian hurriedly called it off. It was not easy for him to judge Xia Qing’s situation, so he decided to put this matter aside for the time being.
When Xie Jingxian saw that Jiang Juan was in a trance, he asked, “What are you thinking about?”
Jiang Juan blurted out, “Xia Qing.”
Xie Jingxian paused, and the look in his eyes darkened. Before he could think of what to say next, he heard Jiang Juan continue, “You saw how she played the game so well, but it shouldn’t be like that.”
Xia Qing’s character is obviously a good girl. She is devoted to studying and seldom follows dramas. How can she play games, and even play so well.
Xie Jingxian looked at Jiang Juan and asked, “Because she’s a girl?”
Jiang Juan slowly shook his head, “No.”
Because she is the female protagonist.
Jiang Juan looked into Xie Jingxian’s eyes and said, “I just think, we are too useless to be relying on Xia Qing for protection, which is so shameful.” He looked at Xie Jingxian and said, “Oh, yes, how can you be ashamed, after all, it was your first time to play, and your performance was already very good.”
Xie Jingxian said, “It doesn’t matter, I will accompany you to feel ashamed together .”
Jiang Juan couldn’t help laughing, and then heard Xie Jingxian asked, “You seem to care about Xia Qing, do you like her?”
Jiang Juan was stunned for a moment, and then said, “What are you talking about? I’m only focused on studying now, how can I think about those feelings and love?”
Seeing Jiang Juan’s seriousness, Xie Jingxian raised his slender eyebrows, which meant to let him continue.
From noon, Xie Jingxian seemed to be in a good mood, not as cold and alienated as usual, but rather gentle and more human.
“School grass The most handsome guy in the school. I can’t see it, but you are very gossipy.” Jiang Juan couldn’t help laughing, “For the sake of your curiosity, I’ll tell you a secret.” He leaned in front of Xie Jingxian and said in a low voice, “Xu Rang likes Xia Qing.”
Xie Jingxian was obviously taken aback for a moment. All his attention is on Jiang Juan during school hours, so he had never paid any attention to Xu Rang.
Jiang Juan didn’t miss the astonishment in Xie Jingxian’s eyes, and smiled happily, “How is it? You didn’t expect it, right?.”
That kid Xu Rang usually looks very sloppy, but is actually very cowardly. He doesn’t dare to show his love for Xia Qing at all.
Maybe Xu Rang knew in his heart that, with his current reputation in Jincheng, pursuing Xia Qing would make people think that he was a toad who wanted to eat swan meat.
After all, not only the students of Jincheng, but also outstanding boys from other schools confessed to Xia Qing.
When Jiang Juan mentioned that Xu Rang liked Xia Qing, his tone was light, with a smile, without any ridicule or contempt, because he knew that Xu Rang had been working hard in silence. He is trying to make himself better. One day in the future, he will be able to grow up brightly and stand beside Xia Qing, and others will not regretfully say that it was a pity for a girl like Xia Qing to be with such a person.
After sharing this secret, Jiang Juan felt a lot more relaxed. He smiled and said, “As the saying goes, a friend’s wife should not be coveted. Xu Rang and I are brothers. Of course, I won’t have any wrong thoughts about the girl he likes.”
After a pause, he said to Xie Jingxian, “Don’t tell other people about this.” But after thinking about it, he said, “Forget it.”
Xie Jingxian was a taciturn man. If no one took the initiative to speak to him, it is estimated that he would not speak for a whole day. He really didn’t have to worry that Xie Jingxian couldn’t keep this secret.
After talking about Xu Rang, Jiang Juan glanced at the time and said to Xie Jingxian, “Go wash up, I’ll get you a toothbrush and a towel.”
Jiang Juan went out to get the toiletries and left Xie Jingxian alone in the room. Thinking of what Jiang Juan had just said, Xie Jingxian raised his lips in a slight arc, and for some reason, he felt much more relaxed.
By the time the two of them washed and cleaned up, it was past ten o’clock. On this day, they went shopping and hanging around without even a single rest.
The two were lying down and chatting, but Jiang Juan suddenly turned silent. Xie Jingxian turned his head and saw that Jiang Juan had closed his eyes and fell asleep.
Xie Jingxian’s expression was soft, he turned off the bedside lamp, and leaned over to tuck in the quilt for Jiang Juan.
The curtains in the room were not drawn fully, allowing the faint moonlight to sweep in. Only then did Xie Jingxian realize that the moonlight was very bright tonight.
Xie Jingxian turned his attention to Jiang Juan again. It was not the first time he saw Jiang Juan’s sleeping face, but this time was different from the previous ones. Tonight, his heart was filled with an indescribable emotion, very light and soft, making him feel as if he was floating in the clouds.
Even if he closed his eyes, Xie Jingxian could clearly remember Jiang Juan’s appearance while being happy, naughty, angry, or when he was expressionless. He seemed to like every aspect of Jiang Juan.
Xie Jingxian couldn’t help raising his hand and trace Jang Juan’s eyebrows with his fingertips, and when his fingertips slid to Jiang Juan’s lips, he clearly felt his heartbeat speeding up.
Thump, thump, thump.
One after another, the shock made his chest hurt.
This feeling came so unexpectedly, that it brought a shuddering feeling, and Xie Jingxian’s fingertips trembled slightly, but he still didn’t take his eyes away from Jiang Juan.
In this quiet night, accompanied by Jiang Juan’s steady breathing, Xie Jingxian finally saw his heart clearly.
It turned out that his attention and concern for Jiang Juan, as well as his inexplicable trust and tolerance, were not because he had been alone for too long, but because he was moved by Jiang Juan.
The reason was so simple.
T/N: If you like my work, please consider buying me a cup of coffee.
And if you are buying me a coffee, don’t forget to mention the name of the novel (TVVSH or DFSRA) whose extra chapters you would like to read, as No. of cups of coffee = No. of extra chapters.
