07. Aunt Rong
Xie Jingxian and the group of delinquent teenagers looked over at the same time, and saw Jiang Juan walking towards them with a smile on his lips.
Jiang Juan’s appearance gave people a gentle and harmless feeling, especially when he was smiling, but at that moment because of the stomach pain, his face was pale, his eyes were getting darker and he looked at people sharply. It makes people feel apprehensive about approaching him.
When Jiang Juan stood beside Xie Jingxian, the students of No. 3 Middle School recognized him even in the dim light of the street lamp.
One of them pointed at Jiang Juan and said, “It’s you kid, you came just in time, let’s calculate the last time’s account together today.”
Jiang Juan was greeted Xie Jingxian’s cold gaze, and said casually while moving his wrists, “I just happened to be having dinner nearby. Seeing these ugly monsters passing by the door, my hand became itchy so I followed them. What happened?”
Xie Jingxian was a little taller than Jiang Juan, and at this moment he looked down at Jiang Juan with a probing gaze.
Jiang Juan calmly let Xie Jingxian look at him, and at the same time, saw Xie Jingxian’s straight posture. If it wasn’t for the pain in his stomach, he would almost believed that Xie Jingxian was fine, and it was he who suffered from the stomach problem.
Jiang Juan forcibly ignored the stomach discomfort, stood shoulder to shoulder with Xie Jingxian, and said to the group of delinquent bastards, “Let’s go together.”
The stomach problem could not be delayed, so these guys had to be resolved as early as possible and take Xie Jingxian to a hospital.
A man in the group of people who was wearing a yellow T-shirt and looked like the boss, said while biting the cigarette in his mouth, “You are quite confident. Today I am going to beat you so much that the next time you see me, you will directly take a U-turn, afraid of seeing me.”
“Take them down!” as soon as he said that, the students of No. 3 Middle School and the rest of the delinquent youths rushed up at the same time.
Jiang Juan sneered, raised his hand and punched one of them on the bridge of his nose. The man let out a yelp, accidentally tripped over his own buddy when he stepped back, and fell to the ground.
Feeling uncomfortable in the stomach, made Jiang Juan’s attacks even more ruthless. In addition, Xie Jingxian, a fighting expert, was also there. In just ten minutes, those people were beaten to the ground.
These people didn’t expect that the ending of the two-vs-many fight would be like this. They covered their swollen faces and got up from the ground, still not forgetting to threaten them, “This fight is not over, you wait for me. Let’s go!”
The student named Brother Qiang who studied in No. 3 Middle School was pressed to the ground by Jiang Juan. He remembered that a student with yellow hair had just shouted that Xie Jingxian had robbed this Brother Qiang’s woman, which was the source of the conflict, and had to be resolved.
Jiang Juan smiled and said, “Let go? You’ve been provoking us again and again. Do you think Jincheng’s students are easy to bully?” If this fight is allowed to continue, there will never be peace.
Jiang Juan was thinking about how to scare this group of people when he saw Xie Jingxian walk to his side, bend down and pick up a stick from the ground – it was brought by the students of No. 3 Middle School.
Xie Jingxian weighed the stick in his hand, then squatted down, lowered his eyes, and stared at the boy who was being held down by Jiang Juan, “Which hand are you going to choose.”
Brother Qiang was stunned for a while before he understood. Xie Jingxian wanted to break his arm. He opened his mouth wide, his eyes filled with disbelief.
Jiang Juan was also startled. He turned his head and saw that half of Xie Jingxian’s face was hidden in the darkness under the dim yellow street lamp.
But Jiang Juan wasn’t worried, Xie Jingxian was a smart person and wouldn’t get himself into trouble. He said this just to scare these people.
The faces of those gangsters and the students from No. 3 Middle School all changed, “I-I am warning you not to mess around.”
Xie Jingxian gave them a cold look, while rotating the stick in his hand.
Those few young people who were used to mixing in the bad side of the society did not expect that a high school student would be so tough to handle. If they had known that this was the case earlier, they would not have accepted this job.
Brother Qiang, who was being held down, was crying and begging for mercy, even shouting out for his father and grandfather. He had never imagined that he would be so unlucky and provoke such a ruthless person. He thought that as he was always working in different places, he was a poor lad with no background, and should be easy to bully.
Jiang Juan felt that the body of the person below him was shaking vigorously. He was a little speechless. With this little bit of courage he was trying to find trouble with students from a different school.
Xie Jingxian probably also felt that it was about time to end everything, as he dropped the stick and coldly spit out a word, “Get lost!”
Those people ran away in a hurry.
Jiang Juan moved his body a bit, and when he looked up, he met Xie Jingxian’s cold eyes. He didn’t change his expression and said with a smile, “That’s good, we have a tacit understanding between us. Next time they won’t dare to look for you again… Let alone mess with you. “
Xie Jingxian’s lips moved, and at this moment, a gentle female voice came from not far away, “Xiao Xie?”
Jiang Juan turned his head and saw a middle-aged woman walking towards them. The woman had her hair tied in a ponytail and an apron around her waist, giving people a very gentle feeling.
Xie Jingxian paused, and after a moment he restrained his coldness. He whispered, “Aunt Rong.”
Jiang Juan understood that this person was the proprietress of the shop where Xie Jingxian was working part-time.
Auntie Rong walked up to Xie Jingxian and said, “I saw that you went to take out the trash and didn’t come back for so long, so I thought that something happened to you.” Then she turned to face Jiang Juan, “Who is this?”
Jiang Juan obediently called out to this aunt and said smilingly, “I’m Xie Jingxian’s classmate.”
Aunt Rong nodded and warmly invited him to sit in the store.
When the three of them walked back, Xie Jingxian couldn’t help but raise his hand and press on his stomach, bending down half of his body.
Aunt Rong noticed it immediately, and asked with concern, “What’s the matter, is it a stomach problem?”
Xie Jingxian has been helping Aunt Rong since the first year of highschool. Auntie Rong is a good person. She loves Xie Jingxian very much, and knows that he does not get to have three meals a day and has a bad stomach.
Xie Jingxian almost couldn’t bear the pain, and Jiang Juan couldn’t bear it even more. He was not able to hide it, and pressed his stomach tightly with both his hands.
Xie Jingxian noticed it and pulled Jiang Juan towards him.
Jiang Juan felt Xie Jingxian approaching him, as a warm breath brushed over his ears. Xie Jingxian’s voice was very light and aloof at the same time, “Stomachache?”
Jiang Juan tilted his head subconsciously, rubbed his ears, and said, “No.”
Aunt Rong was walking in front and couldn’t hear what they were saying, but seeing that Jiang Juan was also pressing his stomach, she couldn’t help but say, “Little classmate, do you have also have an upset stomach?”
As soon as he heard that Jiang Juan knew that he could no longer pretend. He looked into Xie Jingxian and Aunt Rong’s eyes and could only admit that it was a stomachache.
Jiang Juan said, “I just had some drinks with my classmates. Maybe it was too cold, and my stomach couldn’t stand it.”
Aunt Rong sighed, “You children, you don’t know how to take care of your own body. Aren’t you suffering now?”
With a wry smile, he said in his heart that it is the one next to you who does not cherish his own body.
Aunt Rong runs a food stall, probably because of the weekend, business is booming today.
Aunt Rong told her husband to take Xie Jingxian and Jiang Juan to a nearby clinic. The doctor asked about the situation and prescribed the medicine.
Returning to the food stall again, the proprietress made a cup of Sanjiu weitai Dietary supplement which helps relief from Abdominal ache, nausea and vomiting. with hot water and handed it to Xie Jingxian, who in turn handed it over to Jiang Juan.
“Drink.” Jiang Juan pushed the cup back towards him and said harshly, “Hurry up.” He was afraid that if Xie Jingxian delayed any longer, he would cry out in pain.
The proprietress smiled and said, “You don’t need to be humble, little classmate, I’ll make another cup for Xiao Xie.”
Jiang Juan looked at the cup that was placed in front of him again, “…”
Jiang Juan sat up straight and said, “Auntie, my name is Jiang Juan, You can call me Xiao Juan. I’m fine, you don’t need to…”
Before he could even finish his sentence, Aunt Rong quickly prepared another cup and handed it to Xie Jingxian, who thanked her in a low voice, took the disposable paper cup and drank it.
Against Aunt Rong’s concerned gaze, Jiang Juan could only lower his head and drink, but fortunately, it was just Sanjiu weitai, he will take it as if it’s just drinking hot water.
After drinking the medicine, Xie Jingxian and Jiang Juan sat in the shop to rest. Although the two were quite close to each other, neither of them spoke.
From the looks of it, one can’t say that they have a good relationship, but they can’t even say that they have a bad relationship. In short, although the two did not talk to each other, there was no awkwardness between them.
Jiang Juan’s phone rang, and when he took it out, he saw that there were several missed calls, all from Xu Rang. He might not have heard it just now because of the fight.
Jiang Juan answered the phone, and realised that even at this time, Xu Rang still wasn’t done having fun, which just shows how uncomfortable he had been staying at home for the past two days.
Xu Rang shouted loudly, “Brother Juan, you are in the toilet for so long. Did you fell into the toilet?”
As he was going to answer Xu Rang, he heard a sound of coming from his side. Jiang Juan tilted his head and saw Xie Jingxian going outside. He followed Xie Jingxian while saying to Xu Rang, “I have something to do right now, you continue to play. Let’s talk about it later. Bye!”
Jiang Juan put down his phone and saw Xie Jingxian helping Aunt Rong clean up the dishes.
Only then did Jiang Juan realized that the guests had already left. He glanced at the time, and it was already 2:30 in the morning. Usually at this time, Xie Jingxian had already gotten off work, but now he has just started to clean up the tables, chairs, tableware and chopsticks.
Jiang Juan walked out, and heard Auntie Rong say to Xie Jingxian, “Go back and rest, I’ll do it with your uncle. You have class tomorrow.”
Xie Jingxian said, “It will take a long time. I’ll help you.”
Aunt Rong said, “Recently two people resigned, and the store has been too busy. You’ve been working hard these days. I’ll recruit a few more people in two days, so you can have time to study.”
Jiang Juan listened to their conversation. In the middle of their conversation, he said in his heart that it was no wonder, it turned out that some people left and there were not enough staff. He put his school uniform aside, walked over and said, “I’ll help too.”
Xie Jingxian glanced at him, swept the rubbish on the table into the trash can, and said, “No, you can go home.”
Jiang Juan said, “My home is far away, and I’ll anyway have to come back within a few hours. Why don’t I stay and help you.”
Xie Jingxian thought that Jiang Juan was a spoiled young master who couldn’t stand the boring and dirty job of washing the tables, but he didn’t expect Jiang Juan to be very skilled at doing this.
When everything was sorted out, the sky was already starting to bright up. There is really no need to go home now.
After saying goodbye to Aunt Rong, Jiang Juan said, “Let’s go, go to the morning self-study after having breakfast.” He stared at Xie Jingxian while he was talking. He had decided that he was going to forcibly tie Xie Jingxian up if he dared to refuse.
Fortunately, Xie Jingxian had just suffered a round of stomachache, and had no plans to continue to suffering it. The two found a breakfast shop nearby.
Jiang Juan went in to occupy the seat, and Xie Jingxian quickly brought out the food.
Fried dough sticks, steamed buns, eggs, millet porridge.
Jiang Juan took it and thanked him. He frowned while stirring the millet porridge, but didn’t drink it.
Xie Jingxian rarely took the initiative to ask “Are you still feeling unwell?”
“No.” Jiang Juan sighed, “I just don’t like millet porridge.” The rice grains were too small, and they felt strange in his mouth.
Xie Jingxian didn’t expect this, he said, “I saw you always bought it, so I thought that you liked it.”
Jiang Juan felt inexplicable, he had always been eating at home, when did he buy breakfast outside.
Realizing something, Jiang Juan suddenly raised his head. Xie Jingxian had already lowered his head to drink porridge, his movements were neither hasty nor slow, looking graceful.
Jiang Juan gritted his teeth and said, “Bai. Guang. Okay, this kid actually betrayed me, he’s finished.”
The boy was wearing a school uniform, his breath was clean and soft, although he gritted his teeth and swore the name of his classmate, there was no animosity and resentment between his brows. On the contrary, he showed a hint of good-naturedness.
Xie Jingxian couldn’t help but glance at him.
