Ch. 66 Xu Rang’s anger
Jiang Juan read most of the replies, and since he did not slept almost all night, his temper was naturally not very good.
He typed a lot of words, and was about to attack the landlord, but then thought of Xie Jingxian again.
Xie Jingxian was so focused on his studies that he probably didn’t know what was going on in the forum. If he replied, would someone tell Xie Jingxian?
Jiang Juan didn’t want Xie Jingxian’s eyes to be stained by these nasty things. After weighing the pros and cons, he deleted the text, exited and clicked ‘report’.
On the way to school, Jiang Juan took the time to catch up on sleep in the car. In fact, he was very clear-headed. Regarding the matter on the forum, apart from Han Xingye, he couldn’t think of anyone else who would do such a thing.
What a pity, Han Xingye still doesn’t understand, no matter what method he uses, it is impossible to defeat Xie Jingxian.
The third session in the morning was a physical education class. The P.E. teacher led them to do a simple warm-up and then let them free.
Girls either found a place to skip rope, play shuttlecock, or to sit and chat, while boys were playing basketball together.
During this time, the weather has been fine and sunny. Being directly under the sun and doing all kinds of exercises, naturally everyone soon got thirsty.
Today, for some unknown reason, Xu Rang was not as enthusiastic in playing sports as usual, but quietly stayed aside. Seeing that his classmates were thirsty, he got up and said, “I’m going to buy water.”
After getting along for a few months, the attitude of the students in the class against Xu Rang has greatly improved. Two of the boys rushed to Xu Rang and said, “Thank you, Brother Rang.”
Xu Rang quickly came back with a bag of drinks and distributed them to the boys one by one, but Xie Jingxian was the only one who didn’t get any.
Someone reminded, “Xu Rang, Brother Xian hasn’t gotten it yet.”
Xu Rang was very irritable, as he took out a bottle of water from the bag with a sullen face, and threw it at Xie Jingxian—perhaps the word smashing would be more accurate.
Xie Jingxian subconsciously reacted and turned to avoid it.
The scene suddenly quieted down, as everyone turned to look at Xu Rang. Xu Rang said with a sullen face, “My hand slipped.”
Xie Jingxian glanced at Xu Rang and indifferently said that it was all right. He didn’t pick up the water and walked aside.
Jiang Juan handed Xie Jingxian his bottle, and then frowned and walked in front of Xu Rang, “What are you doing, with so much strength you could have smashed a hole into the ground, what are hitting people with it for?”
Xu Rang said, “You are blaming me? Do you feel bad for him?”
Jiang Juan didn’t expect Xu Rang to speak so loudly, and his brows furrowed even tighter, “What will I feel bad for? It’s your fault? I just said it.”
Xu Rang snorted coldly and left the playground to go to the classroom. Jiang Juan also snorted, wondering what happened to this kid.
Xu Rang was in a bad mood, so Jiang Juan asked Xia Qing if they had a quarrel. Xia Qing shook her head and said no, “Maybe it’s because of the stress of studying recently.”
Jiang Juan thought that this might be the case, so he asked Xia Qing to take good care of Xu Rang. Xia Qing said, “Brother Juan, don’t worry. I’ll cover him.”
Jiang Juan smiled and nodded.
After school in the afternoon, Jiang Juan and Xie Jingxian went to the school cafeteria to have dinner and went back to the classroom to memorize English words. Halfway through, he received a message from Ye Pei saying he was looking for him for something.
Since he started playing together with Xie Jingxian, Jiang Juan hasn’t played with his former friends for a long time. Xu Rang is fine. Now that even Ye Pei, who rarely texts him, also called him, he naturally wants to go.
Jiang Juan told Xie Jingxian and left the classroom.
Ye Pei set the meeting place at the playground. When Jiang Juan arrived, he saw Ye Pei standing in front of the basketball hoop, raising his hand and throwing a beautiful three-pointer.
Jiang Juan applauded for him, and Ye Pei laughed when he saw him, “A round?”
“Just finished eating.” Jiang Juan refused and said, “Why are you looking for me?”
Ye Pei put down the basketball, unscrewed the bottle, took a sip, and said, “I miss you, want to look at you.”
Jiang Juan immediately got goosebumps, “Speak human.”
Ye Pei looked at him and smiled, “This is human language.”
The two sat down on the playground, and Ye Pei asked, “What’s the matter with you and Xie Jingxian?”
“Have you read the post in the forum?” Jiang Juan said, “It’s pure nonsense, you won’t believe it, right?”
Ye Pei said, “That you are keeping him? Of course I don’t believe it. What I’m asking is how are you and Xie Jingxian. Are you serious?”
Jiang Juan said, “Ah?” Ye Pei looked at him blankly and asked directly, “Don’t you like him?”
Jiang Juan was so startled that he almost jumped up, “Who, who likes him, I am straight.”
Ye Pei stopped talking, stared at Jiang Juan for a while, and then suddenly smiled. He patted Jiang Juan’s shoulder, as his words carried an unknown meaning “I understand.”
Jiang Juan shook Ye Pei’s hand away as if he was infected by some virus, “You know what, you wouldn’t be an enchanting demon, right? I am getting goosebumps whenever you laugh.”
Ye Pei didn’t say anything, just said bye to Jiang Juan and left, leaving Jiang Juan alone in a daze.
Jiang Juan returned to the classroom and found that Xie Jingxian was not in his seat. He thought that Xie Jingxian had gone to the bathroom, so he picked up the English dictionary and continued to read. It’s a pity that Ye Pei’s words were continuously popping up in his head, and he couldn’t read a single word in the book.
Does he like Xie Jingxian…?
The words couldn’t be memorized anymore as Jiang Juan was too distracted, so he took out the phone from his pocket, and saw that there were several missed calls, all from Bai Guang.
He glanced at the Bai Guang’s seat and found out that no one was there, and was about to call back when he saw Bai Guang running over, panting, and because he was in a hurry, he directly threw himself on his table.
Jiang Juan said, “Why are you running in such a hurry, did you call me?”
Bai Guang said, “Xu Rang, Xu Rang called Xie Jingxian out. I don’t think he has any good intentions, go take a look.”
Jiang Juan said, “Lead the way.”
Bai Guang was overjoyed and immediately started leading the way. Jiang Juan called Xu Rang while walking, but no one answered. He put the phone back in and followed Bai Guang all the way out of the school.
There is an alley outside the south gate of the school, where many delinquents meet to fight. When Jiang Juan arrived, he saw Xie Jingxian in the center of the crowd at a glance.
Xu Rang stood opposite Xie Jingxian, behind him was a large group of people, and some people even had tools. At first glance, they were experienced in fighting.
Jiang Juan didn’t expect that Xu Rang had been ‘Cong Liang’ Someone who is planning to get married and lead a decent life. for so long, but he started to become an overlord again, and it was Xie Jingxian who was regarded by him as his opponent.
Jiang Juan waved his hand and motioned Bai Guang not to make a sound, when he heard Xu Rang say, “Move out from Jiang’s house.”
Xie Jingxian’s voice was light, “What if I say no?”
Judging from his voice, Xu Rang was very angry. He said, “You are so shameless. If you hadn’t seduced him, would he have been with you? You want to destroy him, don’t you?” Xu Rang continued, “Are you short of money? I’ll give you however much you want, so just disappear from his life.”
Hearing this, Jiang Juan understood that Xu Rang had believed the contents of the post on the forum.
While it was funny, Jiang Juan felt a little speechless. He really didn’t expect words like ‘Take money and get lost’ to come out of Xu Rang’s mouth.
Jiang Juan immediately called out Xu Rang’s name.
People in the alley turned their heads when they heard the sound. Jiang Juan walked over, and those people spontaneously made way.
The people who gathered here today were all a group together with Jiang Juan. Later, when Jiang Juan devoted himself to his studies, they were also forced to disband. Now Xu Rang, who was the second-in-command called everyone again, they followed him regardless.
Xu Rang didn’t expect Jiang Juan to appear suddenly, and when he saw Bai Guang, he angrily glared at him, causing Bai Guang to hid behind Jiang Juan.
“It’s none of his business, don’t stare at him.” Jiang Juan grabbed Xu Rang’s neck, causing him to stagger. Jiang Juan lowered his voice and said, “Not going to explain?”
In front of Jiang Juan, Xu Rang’s arrogance when facing Xie Jingxian was gone, as he frowned and said, “I just wanted to help you.”
Jiang Juan naturally knew what Xu Rang was thinking, but it was too funny, “Have you read the forum posts?
Xu Rang pursed his lower lip and asked, “You really don’t have that kind of relationship?”
Jiang Juan said, “Who do you think I am? Don’t you know it in your heart?”
Xu Rang had a kind of admiration and trust in Jiang Juan from the bottom of his heart. Hearing what he said, he finally felt relieved.
Jiang Juan looked at Xu Rang’s expression, “You have been in a bad mood these days, is it because of this?”
Xu Rang scratched his hair a little embarrassedly, “You and Xie Jingxian are too close, I’m just… I’m stupid, I believed what others said.”
Xu Rang changed his mind when he knew his mistake. After the misunderstanding was resolved, he walked up to Xie Jingxian and said, “I’m sorry, it’s my brain that was full of water, don’t take those words to your heart, if you’re angry, beat me up, I won’t fight back.”
Xie Jingxian still looked indifferent, “It’s okay.”
Xu Rang said, “I owe you this time, if you need anything, come to me anytime in the future.”
The crowd soon dispersed, leaving Jiang Juan and Xie Jingxian in the alley. It was getting dark, Xie Jingxian said, “Are you going back?”
Jiang Juan glanced at the moon in the sky and said to Xie Jingxian, “Let’s skip today’s evening self-study.”
