Chapter 1: Instructions Before Beginning School


My mom said, Linlin, look at how lucky you are! You can even get into Peking University! After
you get to college, your first mission is to make sure you arent kicked out, your second mission
is to lose weight, and your third mission is to find a great college boyfriend, so that even if you
dont have this kind of luck in the next generation, you can lean on our genetic inheritance and
go to a prestigious college.

This was what my mom said to me when she sent me off at the train station.

Why did my mom only send me to the train station, and not go with me to the school? That was
because my mom saw our whole towns top student on television. The person who had tested
into the exact same college as I had was a guy, and he was even a pretty guy. My mom loved
pretty boys, her old idol had been Won Bin. She went through numerous people to get that
persons number and then she called him herself.

Hello? Is this classmate Fang Yuke? Hi. I am Zhou Linlins mom. Its like this, didnt my Linlin
test into the same college you didOh, youre not familiar with the place. No problem, no
problem. After you go around a bit youll be familiar with it. Concerning my Linlin, this is her first
time going to a far away place, but her dad and I joined a tour group. Thus, could you do me a
favor and keep an eye on/take care of my Linlin for a while? Please. If theres time you can
come to aunties house.

I sat next to her, shy. I had no impressions of a tourl group. If she was willing to pay money to
go travelling, the sun might as well come up from the western side. And then there was Fang
Yuke, even though we were classmates, our rotten school with weighty studies and a simple
culture, had made it into something that resembled a palace, while us art students were put in
a lonely corner, with about the same amount of land as the palace girls. Even though we were
classmates for three years, I had never greeted him, and could only look at him from far away
when the school awards were given out. I only knew that he had been named School Grass
[1] by our school girls, and I heard he was our principals grandson. He, of course, never loses
the principals face and always would receive a first place award. The notice board/glass
window in our school always posted his photo and next to that was written his birthday,
7/18/1984; year he had been named the Good Student, year month in which he had
received an award.

I used to say some fun things with my friend, That picture looks so much like the first
generation ID card. Compared to those remarks, the whole of it is similar to an obituary. Its
fortunate that our town doesnt have a recommended-for-admission quota, or else this kind of
person wouldnt even need to take the Gao Kao [2], and would immediately go to Tsinghua
University or Peking University. I heard that once the Gao Kaos grades are out, Peking
University is going to call him and let him choose his major/department. Being with someone
like this is too stressful, plus he will definitely not look upon someone like me kindly. Alas, after
I go to Peking University people everyone will be like him. Just thinking about it, I feel my head
bloat. As the saying goes, I would rather be a chickens head than a phoenixs tail [3], so
whats the point of registering for Peking University for the familial line only to regret it?

Speaking of this, before the Gao Kao, my grades went along a wavy line. Sometimes it would
be twice the amount of my valleys. I had even drawn a line chart for every time I tested.
According to the direction of the line chart, my Gao Kao grade should have dipped into a

https://tranzgeek.wordpress.com/fleeting-midsummer-beijing-universitys-weakest-

Fleeting Midsummer (Peking Universitys Weakest Student)
valley. I didnt think that my Gao Kao grade would exceed my daily trend, and rush to the top of
Mount Everest, so when I received my Gao Kao grade via a short text, and saw the number of
zeros and the two digit number, I kept feeling that the text could have made a mistake.

At our household meeting, I repeatedly asked my mom, I was 28th in the province? Really?
Really?

My mom stared at me, Youve thought about examination places to the point of being crazy
right? How could it be possible, it must be that your school is in 28th place.

That was when my prudent father spoke up, Shes in front of so many 0s, it looks like it should
be out of 100 of 100,000s of students, so following this line of thinking, it should be the
provincial rankings.

After the whole scene quieted for about a minute, my mom quickly took the phone and called
my big aunt, Big sister, a big meat pie [4] has hit my homes Linlin!

First it was the Gao Kao and then it was ambitions at an institution which had somehow been
hacked by me through the loopholes.

The moment I entered the train car, I found that there was already a guy sitting across from
me. His white, clean face, framed by a pair of black rimmed glasses, he looked a little like the
famous Fang Da Si. One hand flipped through a copy of National Geographic, and his other
hand was twirling a ballpoint pen. Really, while he looked at National Geographic, he
just had to hold a pen.

I tentatively asked, Are you Fang Yuke?

He raised his head, but the pen in his hand never stopped, Mm, thats me.

I immediately threw out my biggest smile, Hello, hello. I am Zhou Linlin. Please take care of
me. When I finished I immediately took out my stack of snacks and put them on Xiao Fangs
table to let him eat. Fang Yuke coldly said Nice to meet you and continued flipping through
his magazine.

Not too long afterwards, I heard a sound of knocking glass, I turned, it was my mom. She
blinked to me and protruded her lip towards Fang Yuke, and made a You can do it! gesture. I
gave a hopeless breath, rolled my eyes, and angrily said, Can you stop?

This time, I scared the person wrapped up in his magazine, Fang Yuke. He stared at my angry
face and said, If a girl has a bad temper she wont be able to marry. He didnt wait for me to
reply before he went back to his reading again.

The train finally thundered forward. I couldnt come up with anything to say so I grabbed a copy
of Salon [1]. I flipped through a few pages and felt extremely bored, I didnt have anything to
say but I tried to say something anyways, Fang Yuke, how did you get into Peking University?

Fang Yuke didnt lift his head, and continued to twirl the pen, I was always first in school so
this is normal.

Oh. Its so fortunate that I somehow also tested in, otherwise you would be the only person
who made it in from the whole town. Then, you would be so lonely! Hehe. I laughed, but in
actuality, my wound had been ripped open again and sprinkled with salt.

Throughout the whole train ride, I lonesomely sent short texts, looked through Salon, and ate
chicken feet. I had nothing else to do. But Fang Yuke was like a statue who sat opposite me,
reading his magazine, if it wasnt for his twirling pen, I would have suspected he wasnt a living
creature. In the end, I became drowsy, lay on the small table, and fell asleep. Within my haze, I
was woken up by Fang Yuke, Hey, you can go to the berth to sleep. I wiped away the saliva
on my mouth, and trudged to the back, I didnt even take off my shoes, I just lay on the berth
not conscious of anything else. When I woke up, Fang Yuke who was opposite me was reading
again. What a nerd.

After more than ten hours had passed, the train finally reached its stop.

However, when we arrived at the train station early on a Sunday, the school didnt arrange for
anyone to pick us up. Fang Yuke and I looked for a taxi to take us directly to Peking
University. The taxi driver and I chatted very amiably, Fang Yuke was like ice beside me,
cooling the atmosphere. When I had someone to talk to, the time passed quickly and I felt it
hadnt passed too long before the driver said that we had arrived. I got off the car. When I
looked up I could see the four classic words Peking University that I had often seen on TV.

I threw my suitcase aside, and stood under the big plaque as I told Fang Yuke, Classmate
Fang Yuke, help me take some pictures. If the developed picture doesnt have me in it, it will
mean that I am really dreaming.

Fang Yuke saw my idiotic expression and he shook his head saying to me, Can you not be so
childish?

I laughed, We arent the same. You guys look at Peking University like youve seen your
family. When you were born it was already determined that you will be a Peking University
student, and you dont have any feelings for it. I am not the same. I am a stalk of grass that
was married into this wealthy family. I dont know if other wealthy people are regretful. If Im
kicked out, this picture will be evidence of my marriage, it can prove that I used to live a
wealthy life.

Chapter 3- Preparing for the Beginning of School
Inside the school everything was new and fresh. I was like Granny Liu when she entered the Grand
View Garden [1], as I looked at this , and touched that everything. I hated that I couldnt take a
picture of the whole landscape. Fang Yuke probably felt like Ive disgraced him, so he said, Sit

here. Ill give a classmate a phone call, and let him pick us up. Its not like youre afraid of
getting a tan on this hot summer day though.
I made a face of surprise, Wow, Fang Yuke, you can continuously speak to me in four
sentences. Thats not easy, not easy.

Fang Yuke glared at me, as he lowered his head and did not speak.

We didnt have to sit under the shade for a long time when someone patted Fang Yuke and
asked, Why did you arrive here early?

I lifted my head. I couldnt see his face from under the suns glare. After a while I shook my
head and stood up, Hello senior brother! [2]

Senior brother laughed and asked Fang Yuke, You even brought your family over?

Fang Yuke pushed his shoulder and softly said, What nonsense. After this push, senior
brother finally stood under the trees shade and I could see his face clearly. He had small eyes,
a pointed nose, a small dimple, a pointed chin. Sunlight fell through the tree leaves and shone
on the senior brothers face.

My heart jumped around a little seriously. I sucked in my saliva and blurted, Whats your
surname, senior bro?

Fang Yuke rolled his eyes, and said, Just call them your senior brother. He isnt from your
department anyways. Hes only someone from our town. You dont know him.

I immediately followed with, My eyes brim with tears. We are fellow neighbors who have only
met each other now. Its not a senior brother that has a relationship to me directly, but rather, a
relative to my direct descendant!

Senior brother laughed warmly, and turned his head to say to me, To tell you the truth, just call
me Xiao Xi.

Fang Yuke pursed his lip, You only came out for a little while and your eyes are already
brimming with tears for meeting an old neighbor.

I pretended I didnt hear him, and laughed with senior brother, Xiao Xi, Im called Zhou Linlin.
I be studying German, what are you studying?

Senior brother hadnt said anything yet before Fang Yuke said, I even told you he was my
senior classmate. Im studying economics, so hes also studying economics. Idiot.

Senior brother laughed, and his dimples got deeper, I am more senior/bigger than both of
you.

I immediately followed with, Well economics is good, economics is good. Our countrys great
economic development completely relies on you. How is it like the capitalist stuff we read? I
initially wanted to study economics, but I didnt test well this time, only missing by that many
points, so I switched to this major.

Fang Yuke turned his head to me and glanced at me, his expression obviously saying Are you
alright?.

I automatically filtered out his surprised face, and continued to exchange feelings with Xiao Xi,
Xiao Xi, in the future, you must help me more with my math problems, math is my weakness.

Xiao Xi laughed again, Your German Department exempted mathematics, relax.

Fang Yuke who was by the side couldnt help it, and laughed as he put me to one side and
watched me as if I was a joke.

Since the strict rules didnt allow us to get the keys for the dormitory because registration day
hadnt arrived yet, we could only find nearby hotels to stay. Xiao Xi brought our suitcases to his
dormitory building and began to contact nearby hotels for vacancies. I didnt think that so many
people would come to school early, but all the big and small hotels nearby were full. Only one
large bedroom in a guesthouse located inside the school was available. I looked plaintively at
Xiao Xi.

Xiao Xi said, conflicted, If only Yuke had called me earlier, I could have booked the rooms in
advance. Now its a little too late. You guys live there for two days, or improvise, improvise. I
can vouch for Fang Yukes character. You

I immediately cut Xiao Xi off, What about Fang Yuke stays with you, and Ill stay in the
guesthouse.

Xiao Xi thought about it. We normally dont return home for summer break, there are a lot of
guys and girls living in the dormitory together. The Dorm Manager doesnt care. The beds are a
little tighter/smaller than the ones in the guesthouse. But, it is indeed inconvenient for a girl like
you. Then how about this, Yuke, you come with me and share a bed with me.

Fang Yuke said, I have no complaints.

I looked at the meter wide bed in Xiao Xis dorm room and immediately felt embarrassed. In the
great summer heat, the dormitory didnt have space, and I was making two big guys squeeze
together in here. This was indeed not okay. Plus, they had knew each other earlier, and I had
been someone dragged/tagging along from the beginning. I fussily let the others make do,
while I chose. Otherwise, being alone lying on three beds in the guestroom was a little bit of a
waste

I plucked up my courage, Then what about this, Xiao Xi, all three of us can live in the
guesthouse. Anyways, theres the air conditioning part.

Fang Yuke gave a crooked expression and lightly said, You use your abacus [3] so well, how
can you not be good at math?

I turned back to lightly curse back at him, None of your business.

Xiao Xi laughed, If you are worried about our Fang Yuke, I can go. Really, our Fang Yuke is
really upright.

Fang Yuke cupped one fist inside of the other (as a sign of respect, especially in ancient
times), and passionately hit Xiao Xis shoulder.

Xiao Xi gave the final word, All right, then well arrange it like this.

Just before arriving, Xiao Xi received a phone call, and went to help a classmate fiddle with his
computer. Fang Yuke and I just entered the guestroom and hadnt sat down before my mom
called me. I walked towards the bathroom while answering her call.

Lin Lin, are you used to where youre staying?

I said, Its all right. They cant give the dormitory keys to us before registration, so we can only
stay at a guesthouse.

My mom said, Oh, Fang Yuke is still taking care of you. Are you staying in the next room by
him?

I paused for a breath, Mom, he is sleeping in my guesthouse, and we are even in the same
room. After the Ah! sound from the other side of the phone, I quietly hung up the phone.

A short while later, my mom sent me a text: Linlin, even though I really like that rascal, in fact,
we really havent thoroughly investigated him. You must think through many things. Impulse is
the devil.

I reluctantly replied, Mom, I promise that in the future I will stay intact.

A long time passed before the old woman replied, Actually, young people having passion isnt
a bad thing. Go for it!

I ran into the bedroom, loudly shouting Ah!. After the time span between me and my moms
consistent Ah, I let it go.

Fang Yuke lightly scolded me with one sentence, Idiot.

I grabbed a pillow and hit him on the head, What are you cursing about?

Fang Yuke whistled as he stood up, I wont theorize with idiots. After he said this, he walked
out.

In my anger, I used strength to kick the bed legs in return for longer cries of agony.

I lay on the bed, extremely annoyed. I thought of my moms crazy words, and then thought
about Xiao Xi. I didnt know if it was because I had been tired during the daytime, but I fell
asleep.

When I woke up, it had already become dark outside. I rubbed my face and got out of bed,
dazed, leaning on the door as I squinted my eyes. I didnt expect people wouldnt lean on
leisure, when the door was suddenly pushed open strongly. The door just happened to hit my
nose, and I instantly felt two streams of heat flow out.
https://tranzgeek.wordpress.com/fleeting-midsummer-beijing-universitys-weakest-

DFGA 11
Fleeting Midsummer (Peking Universitys Weakest Student)
Outside the door was Fang Yukes surprised face. Xiao Xi and him came inside together, and
saw my battle. They immediately said, Go lie down, go lie down.

So it was like this that I who had just gotten off from the bed, was put back onto the bed.

At first, I had a belly full of fire/anger that was going to explode towards Fang Yuke, but given
that Xiao Xi was there, I pressed down my bellys anger, and pretended to say like a generous
lady, In the future, I am afraid to go stand near the door. Its too dangerous.

Fang Yuke said one sentence, Idiot, Ive never seen anyone who was so dumb that they lay
on the door frame.

The moment I heard this, my fire exploded. I deeply sighed, and bit my teeth saying, So sorry,
I blocked your majestys path.

Fang Yuke stuck out his lips and didnt speak. He turned and went to the bathroom to wash his
towel.

Xiao Xi brought some tampons over from the dormitory Aunties(housekeeper) stash, and said
to me, Its not too convenient for me, you shove it in yourself.

I felt that I was already not very good looking, and that I would have even less of a figure with
the tampons in my nose. I covered my nose with one hand, my other hand busily putting the
tampons in, saying, No need, no need, my blood is good. It will immediately stop bleeding by
itself. It doesnt need to be so complicated.

I hadnt even finished speaking before Fang Yuke grabbed a wet towel and came over, and
immediately said, You want your reputation when youre dead, and suffer a crime while alive
[4]. Then he threw the towel towards my face, Go ahead, after a while itll stop.

Originally, during this time, Xiao Xi and Fang Yuke came over to ask me to go eat with them. I
didnt think that after this thing happened, they could only take care of my injuries. The room
was extremely quiet, there was only the sound of Xiao Xi and Fang Yuke flipping through
magazines. I looked at the ceiling, bored, and prepared to switch on the TV so as to pass the
time, when my stomach suddenly sang Empty City Stratagem [5]. After that sound, I was
regretful. If I had only switched on the TV ten minutes earlier, then I wouldnt have been so
embarrassed. My image, *sigh*, my image in Xiao Xis heart.

Xiao Xi laughed, What about I go to the cafeteria to bring the meal over. Lets eat in here. I
originally wanted to treat you guys out to eat but I didnt know Linlin had such a great fortune.

This call of Linlin made me feel very flattered. I quickly followed with, No problem, no
problem. You can go with Fang Yuke, dont worry about me at all. I can put up with whatever. I
had just finished when my stomach contradicted me strongly and called out again. I was a little
embarrassed.

Fang Yuke couldnt continue to watch this, Xiao Xi, lets go, Ill go with you to order some
food.

I turned my face away and stuck out my tongue. Today I had thrown away my face all the way
to the Pacific Ocean.

After the food came back, my nose was all better. Fang Yuke grabbed a napkin and began
wiping the table. I lightly said, Mysophobe (a person with an abnormal fear of dirt and
contamination). He casually/normally just ignored me, and put the meal directly on the table.
He didnt even wash his hands, grabbing the chopsticks and began to eat. How could it be so
troublesome? Fang Yuke looked at me, didnt speak, and continued to steadily bring out more
and more food.

Two vegetable dishes, two meat dishes, one bowl of soup, and three bowls of rice. I glared at
the pork for a long time, swallowing my saliva, directing my chopsticks towards the cauliflower.
There were really too many rules to a ladys etiquette. One couldnt even eat a piece of meat.
My heart burst with resentment, resentment to chewing cauliflower, while also staring at the
pork.

After a while, Xiao Xi said, Linlin, how can you just eat vegetables? Eat some meat. You bled
so much today, you should still make up for some of your blood.

I immediately waved my hands, No no no, I will just eat vegetables. I am a vegetarian.

Fang Yuke who had been drinking soup choked, coughing desperately. His whole face went
red. He gasped and said, Ah. Shes a vegetarian. When she was on the train she bought a
bag of chicken feet and gave them away to others.

I glared at him, lest he say the wrong thing. That was right, on the train, I did read Salon for the
whole night, and I also ate chicken feet for the whole night, but what did it matter to him? He
just had an extra mouth. Didnt he not talk for the whole train ride? Why did he suddenly start
gabbling? I rolled my eyes, The chicken feet were bought by my mother. She suspected that I
dont usually like to eat meat, and wouldnt grow, so she shoved a big bag in. My mom is just a
little bad at that part, always thinking that Im too skinny. I hate that I cant gain 8-10 kilograms
in just an instant. Theres no way to do so, so I can only bring her well wishes along. I kept
apologizing to my mom silently while looking threateningly at Fang Yuke.

Fang Yuke looked at me, forthrightly, and said to Xiao Xi, Her mom is probably more
optimistic. Shes (Linlin) already like this, and she (Linlins Mom) still thinks shes too skinny.

When it was nighttime and time to sleep, I was placed on the innermost bed. As for the middle
bed, no one said who was going to sleep there, and I was embarrassed to ask. I waited for
Xiao Xi to go bath, and then I pulled Fang Yukes sleeve, throwing in the classic movie line of,
Fang Yuke, from the moment Ive known you to now, have I ever asked you for any favors
before?

Fang Yuke looked at me, Youve only known me for two days. Usually how many things do
you ask for?

I was speechless, and could only bring out as the final resort, I dont care, but youre like an
old lady thats all.

What do you want?

Its very simple, you just need to sleep at the other end of all the three beds.

Fang Yuke looked at the bed, then he looked at me, Do you have anything against me?

I immediately shook my head, What can I have against you? Its just that I was thinking that
weve already been face to face for so long on the train, so Im worried that familiarity will breed
fondness. I have very specialized feelings so I wont be good with just anyone.

Fang Yuke laughed, Idiot.

Since I had slept for so long in the afternoon, at night when the nights went out, I didnt feel like
sleeping at all. Xiao Xi slept in the bed beside me. When the moonlight shone, his face was
even more softened. Night time was really good, I could observe a person without any
hindrances. Fang Yuke that rascal was still considered gullible. He could fulfill my wish and lie
on the other end. When I thinkt of the present situation, I laughed.

It just happened that Yao Zi sent me a short text, asking me how my new surroundings were. I
was excited, secretly put on my slippers and went out to the balcony to call her: Yao Zi, do you
believe love at first sight? What is it like to like someone?

Yao Zi had already become excited on the other end, It cant be! How did you fall in love even
before school began? Who is it that had you falling in love at first sight?

I coyly said, I also think its too fast. I havent even prepared for it yet, but I didnt think that the
meat pie would hit my head again [6]. Say, how much kindness and generosity do you think my
ancestors accumulated over the years?

Yao Zi heartily laughed, Linlin, what kind of a man moved your heart. Usually, youre casual
aboutguys. How did you fall in the river of love so quickly? It really is a day for raining brides
and marriage. The marriage is coming, and it cant be stopped no matter what.

I laughed heehee, He isnt very handsome, but hes the very gentle type. You know? Like
when he laughs, its very warm, that type. Hahahaha. When he laughs he also has dimples.
When he talks, his voice is a little husky, but its the magnetic husky type. Ill show you. Then, I
started imitating his voice.

On the other end, Yao Zi already couldnt help herself. OMG just start being horny all right?
Pursue him well and bring him back for the New Year.

I immediately accepted the command., Yes madam, I will definitely not let down the opposite
partys trust. I am determined to win. After I finished talking, full of silly happiness, I hung up
the phone. I secretly slipped back into the room. When I closed the door, Fang Yuke turned
around. In the darkness his eyes were particularly bright from the moonlight. I was startled and
lowly scolded, People scare people, this can kill someone from fright all right?

Fang Yuke scoffed, and didnt speak. After some time,the word Idiot popped out from Fang
Yukes side. F**k! Talking in your sleep also includes cursing?!

[1] Granny Liu when she entered the Grand View Garden: Granny Liu is a character from ???
or Dream of the Red Chamber; the scene Lin Lin is referring to, is the scene where Granny
Liu goes to visit the rich mansion, each time (most likely) gasping in wonder at all the splendor
around her.
[2] Senior brother: Term for classmates

[3] abacus: (suen pan); also means scheme or strategy. Thus, Fang Yukes sentence
could have had two meanings at the same time. He could have also been saying: You scheme
so well while saying You use your abacus so well
[4] You want your reputation when youre dead, and suffer a crime while alive: Basically saying
that she should set aside her reputation and do what she must.
[5] Empty City Stratagem: (in which Zhuge Liang presents himself as unperturbed while making
it evident that his city is undefended, hoping his adversary will suspect an ambush) in this case
it refers to Lin Lin trying to hide her obvious hunger.
[6] Meat pie- refers to a great stroke of fortune (as mentioned in the first chapter when Lin Lins
mom calls up her family to tell them how lucky Lin Lin is)
Chapter 4- The Revolution is Inviting Guests to Dinner
After two more days, school was about to begin choosing classes. Even though this break was
so long, from June to August, when I saw it was about to end, I felt very reluctant. After I
finished purchasing some household items with my dormmates, I decided to eat and drink well
to celebrate marrying into a wealthy family [1]. But when the time came, my dormmates
parents still hadnt left. I was embarrassed to drag people around to eat with me. The more
important part was that I hadnt seen Xiao Xi for two days. How could I create an opportunity
for me and Xiao Xi to eat together? Inviting him alone would definitely show that I was
immodest. I calculated with the abacus in my heart, grabbed the opportunity, and I found the
name of the person I dubbed the Cruel Killer. On the other end, some very beautiful music
drifted over. That really made one forget oneself due to its extravagance. Paying money for
such a beautiful ringtone for someone to enjoy. That song played to halfway, and Fang Yuke
still hadnt answered the phone. I hung up and could only lie on the bed for an afternoon nap,
with nothing else to do.

I didnt know how long I had slept when I was suddenly woken up by hunger. I grabbed my cell
phone to see the time, and saw that four calls from the Cold Killer had been unanswered. I
just thought of calling him back, when my phone rang. I glanced at the name, and it was still
Cold Killer. I answered it: Hello? What is the matter that you are so anxious to get ahold of
me? The other side was silent for a while: Are you a pig? I called you so many times, you
didnt even hear it! I felt a little confused: What? I was just sleeping? If you have things to say,
quickly say them. If you need to fart, quickly fart. I still need to go to the bathroom.

Whats the matter? Isnt it you who called me? Idiot.

I paused, recalling what I had done before going to sleep that I had actually called this person.
The person at the other end was impatient: I cant stand you anymore. Im hanging up.

Wait, I thought of it, I thought of it. I want to bring you out for a meal.

There was a moment of silence. I thought the signal wasnt good. Hello, can you hear me? I
said I want to treat you for a meal. Give me some face big senior brother~

Where are we going to eat?

F**k, I had invited him out for dinner, but his attitude was still just as cold. The place is hard to
find. We havent been here for a few days, and Im not familiar with the area. What about this,
you can ask Xiao Xi to come along too. I also have to thank him for his help these past few
days. Incidentally, we can also let him be a guide for us and introduce a place to eat. I held the
cell phone with one hand, regretfully unable to make some applause for myself with the other
hand. My IQ was definitely over 150. How could I be so smart? These words were much more
reasonable and full of restraint! The other end paused for again, and said, I will do my best.
He didnt wait for me to speak when he hung up the phone. You brat. If you have to save
energy for the power bill, then dont keep pausing when you speak. Really! But when I thought
of eating dinner with Xiao Xi I made a triumphant gesture: Oh yeah! After I finished speaking, I
looked even more silly as I had a lions head, going to the bathroom to wash my face.

Very early in the morning of the next day, I received a short text from Fang Yuke, it was so
thick (to the point), that it couldnt have been thicker: Guolin Restaurant, 7:00 pm, meet at the
entrance. F**k, sending a telegram, and he was even personal messaging me! I replied: Ok, is
he going? I waited for n minutes. The brat didnt even reply to me again. I estimated he had
begun his love affair with his girlfriend.

I hadnt seen Xiao Xi in the previous days. My heart was about to pop out of its chest. Now we
were finally about to meet, and I was a little flustered. Oh, unless liking a person was always
like this? Worried, uneasy? I turned my head towards the window, and thought about what
Xiao Xi was doing now? Maybe he was sleeping? No, he probably wasnt able to sleep as well
as I could; reading? Probably. What book? Comic books? No, that was what I read. Textbook?
No, too boring. He was definitely reading a very deep book, completely English- the mysteries
of the universe or the analysis of global financial trends. Where he was not satisfied with the
authors explanation, he would definitely use a pencil to write his own point of view. As for
where the authors point of view was especially brilliant, he would would definitely draw a large
wavy line. Mm, right, he would use a clean slender finger, to flip the page, one by one. Then,
he would immerse himself completely in the book.

What are you thinking about? That beautiful? Wang Jies beautiful legs stepped over and
broke my line of thinking. Everyone was a young person. Not after too long, did we mix
together like a family. I laughed: Im thinking of my husband.

Oh, what familys Gong Zi is it? Introduce him, introduce him. Wang Jies gossip ears had
already perked up.

The secret cannot be revealed. I laughed. I should still wait until we get to the husband
stage, if there is an opportunity, Ill introduce him to you.

Are you guys being warm or is it your one-sided thoughts. Seeing you laughing like ??, Im
guessing its your own thoughts.

Hey, what are you saying? Why is it that its one sided thinkings just because I laugh like ???
How do you smile mysteriously?

You wont understand this. This mysterious smile is absolutely shy, you have to look soft yet
deep and far. Ill perform it for you. When she finished, Wang Jie pretended to be a wise and
virtuous woman.

I laughed, You are acting Lin Dai Yu.

Its just like your female beauty exceeds that of the whole world. Just now, I saw you looking
like your saliva was about to fall onto the ground. Wang Jie laughed.

Oh, you really have portrayed it accurately. I really am having a crush. The other person
doesnt know my thoughts. Look at you and your boyfriend, calling each other until a cocoon
could form in your ear. Arent I helping you spread the phone call weight around? Maybe not
after too long, this dormitorys calls will come to me.

Can you laugh a little more unrestrained? Wang Jie pushed me, Look at yourself, youve
fallen in love for the first time right?

Expert, a definite expert. How did you know?

When I was dating, you were still behind me. Alas, love is a little complicated. If it doesnt play
out correctly, it can range from a sad heart to heavy self-mutilation.

Pooey, pooey. How can it not work out?! Even if it doesnt work out it has to! My mom said, my
first mission is to find a boyfriend in this place. How can I live up to my mothers beautiful
expectations?

Ok ok ok, Lin Lin, I will just wish you success. Wang Jie turned and sat at her own seat. She
carried a mirror and began to do her makeup.

I turned and stared at Wang Jie putting eyeliner onto her eyes. Wang Jie turned and looked at
me: When you stare at me like this, how can I do my makeup, I feel so uncomfortable.

Hahahaha, Jieer, why dont you also help me do my makeup. I have a date tonight.

Wang Jie laughed: All right, no problem. After she finished she began to put something onto
my face. She wiped it on as she said, Your skin is a little dry. The T-area [1] is a little oily. Mm,
here is a small pimple.

[1] The area including the forehead and the nose. This is often referred to as the T-area
because it forms a T shape. A lot of people exude oil from this area.
Big sister, can you stop being so against me. If you continue saying things like this I will
become a yellow faced grandmother. Im only like this because I was too agitated these past
few days. Isnt this testing your makeup skills? I also have a date tonight, so give me
confidence okay?

Oh, what yellow faced grandmother? Why would a yellow faced grandmother have a pimple
on her face? You are definitely not a yellow faced grandmother. Haha. Say something serious.
Put some light makeup on for your first date then, so that youll be a little soft and comfortable.

After half an hour, Wang Jie shoved the mirror into my hand: Look at my handiwork. Ive made
you into someone who people will love at first sight, a little fairy at whom flowers will upon
seeing you.

Its uncanny ah, uncanny ah! I tutted praise in front of the mirror. When I looked it over, my
pimples, and dark whatever had all disappeared. Another circle had been added around my
eyes.

*Probably eyeliner or whatnot.

I fiercely hugged Wang Jie: Wait for lao niang to complete my mission, and when I return, Ill
treat you to meat.

I looked at the map. Guolin wasnt that far from Peking Uni. I estimated that it would take about
10 minutes for me to get there. In the face of modesty, I decided to arrive there punctually. I
never stopped checking my watch. When it hardly reached 6:50, I was so anxious to set off.

Fang Yuke and Xiao Xi were already talking at the entrance of Guolin. From faraway, the two
hot guys posing as door gods in front of Guolin was really a little romantic. I readjusted my
breathing, walked over, and waved my hand: Hi*, sorry, I came late.

*she says this in English

Fang Yuke turned to look at me. He was started for a moment before he turned his cold face
back and said, Lets go. I automatically followed him and walked to Xiao Xis side, saying, Xiao
Xi, did you wait long?

Xiao Xi shook his head: No, no. I just went to the economic center and almost missed the
time. I just ran over. The person who waited should probably be Fang Yuke who waited for a
long time.

When we were ordering food, I asked Xiao Xi what he wanted to drink. Xiao Xi asked: Do you
guys drink beer?

Fang Yuke said, Anything is fine with me. I wrung my hands: You guys drink. I wont drink any.
I cant drink alcohol. Haha.

Actually my alcoholic capacity was still pretty good. From a young age, my dad would use
chopsticks dipped in rice wine to feed me. Now, drinking beer was just like playing around.
Such a great summer day, drinking beer was obviously the solution. Thus it was only
unfortunate that I hard to wear this princess dress, and put on some light makeup. It wouldnt
be according if I staked wine. It would be bad if I scared Xiao Xi. I should still endure it first.

On the table, it made my arm stretch so much before I could pick some of my dish, so I gave
up. No matter how attractive it was, I automatically filtered it out. I drank a cup of cold water,
ate a bite of the dish, and slowly chewed, slowly swallowing. All the women on television ate
like this. Even if my stomach was very hungry, I was more afraid that I would scare my future
husband. I grabbed a napkin and wiped my mouth, when I recited the line I had memorized
before I ate: Xiao Xi, what should I do in University to make it meaningful?

I didnt know what Fang Yuke had choked on but he continued to cough. I looked up at the sky:
God, at the same time you dropped me meat pies, please also crush this person to death.
Fang Yuke is basically my nemesis. Every time when things are so great, the atmosphere will
be ruined by him.

Xiao Xi laughed, his eyes narrowed to become cute crescents. His dimples deepened: It
depends on what you want to pursue. If you want peaceful days, you can learn just like how
you did in high school; if you have ever thought of enriching your life, you can think of
participating in many clubs. Peking Uni has a lot of clubs. There is the Contestation between
the 100 Clubs; in the beginning of school, each club will begin to recruit new people. You can
participate in one or two clubs according to your interest or you can go find an internship.
Some people have already decided if they want to go out of the country or test into graduate
school before they go to the school. Different goals may make life different.

The moment I heard this, my heart cooled. If I said, My goals are to not get kicked out of
school, and find a guy to marry? I hesitated and said, Oh oh, entering school, I dont think that
my days will be easy. What are your plans for the future?

Xiao Xi didnt say anything. After a while he sighed and said, I plan to go out of the country to
study Finance, and try to get a scholarship. But my dad is not in good health right now. I do not
feel at ease.

Seeing Xiao Xis sudden depression, I didnt know how to comfort him, so I could only say: If
ones health isnt good then go see the doctor more often, eat more medicine. It will get better.

Fang Yuke drank a sip of beer: You idiot. Eat some more medicine. Does anyone say things
the way you do? If you continue on like this, his father will become a doctor.

I also felt I said something wrong. I immediately said, Oh oh, I really dont know how to say
things. I meant, heaven helps the worthy. You dont need to be too worried.

Really, my heart was very uncomfortable. Xiao Xis grades were so good. He could get a
scholarship if he went out of the country. I was learning German, so if I went out of the country,
I could go to Germany. Besides getting the interest of the American imperialists, I wouldnt
have anything else to do. Plus, I didnt even know if I could graduate, so getting a scholarship
was only but a faraway dream.

The air pressure at the table became lower instantaneously. To liven up the atmosphere, I
immediately said, For a beautiful tomorrow, cheers!

Fang Yuke laughed, saying: Cheers!

I added: To the smile of the millennial iceberg (referring to FYK), cheers!

When it was o clock, I pretended to go to the bathroom to prepare to check out. The waiter
said, the gentleman from before had already paid. I turned and saw them and lowly said, which
one? The one with dimples or the one wearing glasses? The waiter pointed to Fang Yuke: The
one that looks like Won Bin.

Later I recalled, I thought this persons aesthetic appearance was really strange. I had
obviously thought that Fang Yukes face was big and square, but why did the older lady and
the waiter all say it was like Won Bin? Won Bin had some dimples, okay.

Won Bin: Won Bin is a South Korean actor. He first gained wide popularity in 2000 after
starring in the television drama Autumn in My Heart and has since gained critical acclaim for
his performances in the films Taegukgi, Mother and The Man from Nowhere.

I ran back and secretly asked Fang Yuke: Why are you helping me find some money?

Fang Yuke glanced at me: I am not used to letting girls treat me to dinner, even if you arent
like a girl in the first place.

I gritted my teeth and asked: Where do I not seem like a girl?

Fang Yuke purposely looked at my head, word by word he said, What-do-you-think?

I felt like all the blood in my body went up to my face. But since Xiao Xi was by the side, I
couldnt attack, so I could only swallow my temper and say: Just wait, Fang Yuke!

I snorted. The peaceful Xiao Xi said, Are you full? If youre full we can go.

I stood up, preparing to leave. Fang Yuke suddenly said to Xiao Xi: Xiao Xi you go first, me
and her still have some matters.

I glared at him, and tried not to move my mouth: When did we have something private to say
between us?

Fang Yuke pulled me to sit, and said to Xiao Xi: We really have something coming up. Her
mom just called me, and said that when she called her (LL) it didnt go through.

I suspiciously took out my phone. That was wrong. My phone had no problem.

Xiao Xi looked at me, then looked at Fang Yuke. He laughed and said all right.

I watched Xiao Xi leave just like that. Frustrated, I asked Fang Yuke: What matter?

Fang Yuke was a little embarrassed and said to me, The matter that has to do with you
women.

When I saw his hesitant appearance, I got angry and stood up,loudly asking: What women
matter? Say it clearly. What is the blind trouble?

Fang Yuke pointed to my dress: Behind there.its red.

When I heard this, I immediately used my hand to block behind me: Why didnt you.didnt
you say it earlier?

https://tranzgeek.wordpress.com/fleeting-midsummer-beijing-universitys-weakest-
student/?wref=tp
DFGA 20
Fleeting Midsummer (Peking Universitys Weakest Student)
Fang Yuke lightly whispered a sentence; I said you arent like a girl, but you dont use this to
prove it.

I felt my face was hot, I aggressively roared to him: Only the heavens, the earth, you and me
can know of this matter, got it?

Fang Yuke didnt say anything. My heart was actually very messy. If I knew this earlier, I
wouldnt have drank ice water. Unlucky aunt [1], why did it come so much earlier. I bet it was
that as an old person, she had not acclimatized yet. But continuing to sit was not the solution.

I said to Fang Yuke: Didnt you promise my mom that you would take care of me well?

Fang Yuke nodded.

I followed with: Before I came upstairs, I saw that there is a Jeansweat store nearby and a
convenience shop. Buy me some pants or a dress, either is fine. By the way, by the way you
need to buy me more sanitary napkins. I will give you the money in a moment.

Fang Yuke was silent a moment. He watched me, and lowered his head as he went down the
stairs.

After a long time, Fang Yuke lugged a bag of stuff back. I immediately grabbed it and rushed to
the bathroom.

I opened the plastic bag. Inside was a pair of black pants, a black dress, and many different
brands of sanitary napkins. I gloated happily. The rascal had probably dawdled for a long time
before grabbing a pile of napkins. Oh God, oh God, even though I told you I want to crush him,
remember not to hurt me. Why are you using me as the opening target?

I changed into a pair of different pants and went out the door. Fang Yuke was already waiting
outside the bathroom. I patted his shoulder, and said, Lets go, its been hard on you.

Fang Yuke coldly said, The heavens know, the earth knows, you know, I know of this matter.

I laughed: Got it got it. In the future, if your Ru Ting is met with this, youll have experience.
Right?

Fang Yukes face immediately became long: Your stupid head should stop thinking about that.
In total, you only have such a tiny bit of brain cells. Otherwise you dont even need to be on the
right path.

I was happy: How did you know my brain cells werent of enough use? Usually I rarely use my
brain cells. I have to transfer them to use them, like I am Einstein, do you understand? I got
140 points on my Gao Kao. 140! What did you get?

Fang Yuke said, 150.

I didnt talk anymore. When I talked to him, I felt no particular sense of accomplishment. When
I was taking the Gao Kao, I didnt know how my brain resuscitated. Before, getting 125 in math
https://tranzgeek.wordpress.com/fleeting-midsummer-beijing-universitys-weakest-

was already very good for me. But I somehow got 140 on the Gao Kao. If I had to retake the
test again, I estimated I could only get 110. How did this rascal get full points? After second
grade I didnt know the concept of full points!

[1] celebrating marrying into a wealthy family: To Lin Lin this refers to getting into the highly
prestigious university, Peking University. Thus, she is celebrating her union with Peking
University as she officially becomes a student at one of the richest academic atmospheres of
all time.
Chapter 5- Choosing Electives is a Technical Activity
I entered the school that year. Peking University allowed you four weeks to pick your courses.
Besides professional courses, everyone could also freely pick elective courses. You could pick
any class as long as you got the required credit hours. I grabbed the thick selection book, and
began to ponder which classes I would not fail at. I opened the new students manual casually
and found the failing penalties after a time. Peking Uni was still considered extremely selective
when entering, but extremely lenient when exiting it. To take care of the weak students that
were unable to adapt, if new students failed, as long as they made up the class their second
year it would not be included on the transcript. The new students manual also cautioned us not
to overselect the first year, as to prevent failing from not enough energy. Of course, I would
solemnly obey this instruction, as my brain had enough to worry about with the professional
courses. As long as I could get all my credits in four years, everything would end.
I turned to ask the others: Have you learned German before?
They were really very honest: No, but after I applied for this department, I applied for a
summer class for a while.
I could not believe it and sighed: You guys just finished the Gao Kao and you still participated
in a summer class? Why is it that after I took the Gao Kao, I felt like this servant* was liberated,
and became as wild as a crazy horse? You guys are too shameful!
She is referring to herself in third person (more specifically, she is referring to herself as
this servant)
Julie laughed: Wasnt everyone afraid of the huge competition? We all said we cant lose at
the starting line. I heard that there were also people who grew up speaking German around
also. Our days wont be easy!
I sighed, This kind of crime is simply outrageous! My God~~ why dont we just hit a wall and
forget about it?!
Wen Tao comforted me: Dont think more about it. Learning German for these four years, you
dont need to learn math, and you probably dont need to read English. The objective is just to
let us concentrate on reading the German language. And the language relies on diligence to
learn it. Everyday we have to wake up early to read it for an hour. Then it will definitely be
fluent.
I looked down: Everyday in the early morningthen wont you have returned to high school? I
cant
But as a single person, I could not reverse this trend.
Our floor was all from the foreign language department. Every morning, a group of girls would
have a cup full of water in the bathroom to practice their sounds and pronunciations. The first
time I heard it, I thought I was in the suburbs, and what I heard was the sound of frogs. So I
could only practice with water every day, but I didnt know why, every time while I practiced, I
would swallow the water. This made me full of nausea. Even if I moved or didnt, I would be
stimulated: there would often be a lot of girls screams beside me: I pronounced it, I
pronounced it, listen

Oh, they really had too much against people. My intelligence couldnt compare with the others,
unless it was that my organs were a little lacking than otherss organs? Why could everyone
sound it, while I hadnt made any improvement at all this past month. I forcibly opened my
mouth as I looked into the bathroom mirror, and began to analyze my oral structure. Right
when my mouth was about to get sore, someone patted my back, Hey Lin Lin!
I closed my mouth with difficulty. From the mirror, I saw Ru Ting standing by my side. I turned
and greeted her: Hi, so coincidental.
Ru Ting laughed, We live in the same building. I can never find you at all. What were you
doing just now? Do you have a cavity?
Youre the one whos grown a cavity! I took a step back and said, how can the one who has a
cavity be her! I laughed: No, no, its just that theres a little inflammation on the tonsils.
Ru Ting anxiously asked: Did you eat medicine?
I waved my hands: Theres no need to eat medicine. Drinking water is fine. The Beijing
weather is a little more dry, one should drink more water.
Thats right. You and Yuke are all Southerners. Coming to the North, you must not be used to
the climate. She kept washing the grapes as she told me, You should eat more fruits. I just
bought these from the downstairs market. After I finish washing them I will send them to Yuke.
He doesnt know that he should buy some fruits either. Every time he will wait for me to buy
them before he eats them.
A lover was really scary. Even after three sentences she would not leave her man. I said,
Yuke also bought some fruit. Last time I saw him buy some grapes.
Really? In the past he didnt like eating fruits. Washing was too much trouble, so he just didnt
buy them to eat. Ru Ting pouted.
The cold-faced killer required too much high maintenance. I was never too much trouble. It
wasnt a big deal to not wash them and eat it directly. I laugh, embarrassed: That is because
he has you to wash them, so he purposely doesnt wash them to wait for you to send them
over after you wash them.
Wear it 1000s upon 10000s of times, but dont wear boot-licking*. I was very familiar with this
saying. Ru Ting laughed very sweetly, the dimples by her mouth becoming deeper. I thought of
Xiao Xis dimples. They were very deep and sweet.
*No matter how many lies you tell it is easy to expose a secret, but just be flattering. Even if
you add many extravagant embellishments, when people hear it their hearts are soothed,
and they no longer take it seriously, so as long as you have thick skin (stubborn), you can
say whatever you want. (TL: I really did my best to translate that saying literally in the story,
but still ended up with something akin to crap.)
Ru Ting asked me: How did you meet Yuke?
See, see, she had begun to calculate our history. I laughed, and said, Really, I dont really
know him. Our town was small, and only the two of us got into Peking University. My parents
couldnt accompany over, so they asked him to come over with me. Weve known each other
for a few days.
It doesnt seem like it, haha. I feel like he has known for ages. When I went over to his house
for summer break, he said he would come with his parents, and didnt allow me to accompany
him. I didnt think that in the end, he didnt allow his parents to to stay with him, saying that this
would embarrass him, a big man, too much.
What show was this now? Was she trying to suggest to me that their relationship was already
to the stage of meeting each others parents, or to tell me that I took advantage of Fang Yuke,
staying with him in the train for the whole night. Puhlease, that whole night his eyes were glued
to National Geographic, and ignored me. I didnt even speak as much that night as I am now to
you. I was a little unhappy, but I pretended I didnt have a temper and said, Haha.
Suddenly I thought of the classic phrase: Most of the time, when I say haha, I dont really
laugh, and my heart thinks go f**k your mom [1].
I still wasnt sure what electives to pick. Really, I had very simple requirements for my
electives: attendance counted for more than 30% of the final grade, the essay counted for 40%
https://tranzgeek.wordpress.com/fleeting-midsummer-beijing-universitys-weakest-
student/?wref=tp
DFGA 23
Fleeting Midsummer (Peking Universitys Weakest Student)
of the total grade, but the test must account for less than 30% of the final grade or there is no
test. From my Gao Kao grades and my previous exams, my test scores jump around too much.
I couldnt guarantee that God wouldnt be too busy to attend to me half a year later. If I didnt
test in, I would still have my attendance and my essay to help out. Even though I didnt have
my confidence in my papers, but at least, I could do this thing slowly, repeatedly. Unlike tests
where it was an instantaneous outbreak. The only thing I was sure of was attendance. In order
to not fail, I would definitely go all out, even in rain or shine.

I hugged my classes manual, and went with Julie to the various teaching buildings, listening to
every elective class. As soon as the teacher announced the course assessment, I would begin
my job as a recorder. In fact this time, the teachers classes were more like the US presidential
campaign. The teacher had already packed his first class, and could not wait to say the
previous two sentences, followed by applause. Of course the famous brand teachers were
eligible to laugh and talk. They didnt have to worry any students would choose their classes,
but they had to worry that too many students would choose their class: a 300 seat classroom
would be crowded the first two weeks of school. The hallways and even outside the classroom
would be packed, and all of it was to see the famous teachers style. This kind of teacher would
casually say when the bell rang: Our class never takes attendance, and disregards all test
scores. If you want to listen then listen, if you arent then go learn by yourself. You guys are
young ah, you have more things to do: love, learning, getting together, and the like, not like us,
so busy. But I believe that after you have listened to two classes, you will come to this class
consciously because my course is not just about learning. I assess very simply. Theres one
final exam and it is over a discussion topic. After he finished speaking, many students rushed
up to him and cordially shook hands with the teacher. They asked the teacher to add their
name to his class in order to prepare themselves for an utter defeat with the competition from
the other classes. Of course, as for me: Hmph, what a joke, what does it mean to not only
discuss knowledge? I have not even begun to understand knowledge, how can I learn
something beyond knowledge? The risk of failing was too great. X! (TL: She is crossing out the
course from her list with an X)

I held the thick elective textbook thinking about the remaining classes after all the classes I had
eliminated. I asked the person who had come with me, Julie: Julie, what do you plan to
choose? If I keep eliminating on like this, there will be no more classes for me to choose. I cant
choose classes that are too hard, and I cannot choose classes with highly difficult
examinations, I cant choose classes where the teacher looks shameful say, if I continue on
like this, will I end up only taking professional courses this semester?

Julie rolled her brown eyeball: No, really I feel as long as you are passionate and enthusiastic
about the course you want to choose, then choose any class, and youll be able to be
excellent. Choosing a husband also goes up to this level. Do you want to choose the same
psychology class as me? From a small age, I have always had an interest in psychology,
Teacher Sun Dong Dong also has a specialty style.

I sighed: Its another specialty teachers class. Right now I am very sensitive to the word
specialty style. In the future, please do not mention any word concerning specialty style in my
presence.

I disappointingly went with Julie to go buy a bottle of water, but I didnt think that I would see
Xiao Xi at the canteen! Xiao Xi wore a white t-shirt. Underneath, he wore grid-like beach pants.
On his feet were flip flops. It was like he was dressed for a seaside resort.

I excitedly ran in front of Xiao Xi: Hi, Xiao Xi.

Xiao Xi was first surprised for a moment. Then he revealed his lovely dimples as he smiled:
Hi, why are you here? Wheres Yuke?

Fang Yuke? I dont know, he isnt my Siamese twin. I am here to pick classes, what about
you?

Xiao Xi said, Oh, I am accompanying my friend to go to the lecture. Tomorrow is the weekend.
In the afternoon I am preparing to go to Beidaihe to play. Over summer break I was interning,
and didnt have time to go around.

Oh that is really good. If he invited me in five seconds, I would immediately agree to go with
him. I silently counted in my heart, 5-4-3-3-2-1-.9-.8-

Julie patted me: What are you thinking about?

I looked at Xiao Xi, disappointed: Then play well and remember to buy me a souvenir.

Xiao Xi laughed: Of course.

On the way back, Julie asked me: Who was that hot guy?

I pretended I couldnt understand her: What hot guy?

Pretending even with me? All the moments I stared at him were worth it. Just now, if I hadnt
broken you off, he would have began to let out water from all your staring. You like him?

So obvious? I thought I hid it very well! Haha. His name is Xie Duan Xi. We all call him Xiao
Xi. He is a grade level higher than us. Before he was our small towns student at another
school. That year he got third place in the whole province for Gao Kao. Its only a pity that I
didnt know him then. If I knew him earlier, maybe I would have worked my butt off to be third
place in the province, and then we would have matched, a perfect match.

What rubbish. Dont be so anxious to be a mistress. But your guy is a little hot. Your goal is a
little high. The road is long ah! Julie shook her head as she lamented.

I feel hes pretty good looking, it isnt that hardI had less and less confidence. Then tell
me what part of him is bad and give me some confidence.

I only met him once, how would I know what parts of him are good? But if I have to say
something then I would say that his leg hairs are a little too long.

How does this count as something bad, plus, from just one glance you saw the other persons
leg hairs?

I must take advantage of the time to do the most comprehensive analysis of the development
as a whole. I heard that people with thick leg hairs will have very strong demands. This may
help you defeat some of your opponents. But I just dont know if you can resist it? When she
https://tranzgeek.wordpress.com/fleeting-midsummer-beijing-universitys-weakest-
student/?wref=tp
DFGA 25
Fleeting Midsummer (Peking Universitys Weakest Student)
finished, she began to look at me , squinting her eyes like this: (TL: Insert smiley emoji
here).

When I finished digesting her words, I put up a vertical thumb, Valiant! I know you are
worthwhile. Lets become sworn sisters.

Julie laughed: You are pretty interesting. After hearing this, many girls will definitely hit me, in
hypocrisy. Really, they are very happy to listen to this. You are real enough, real enough!

Thats right! I have no other faults, if I have to say a fault, then that is that my person is too
real. For example, right now I am thinking, I must choose classes that occur at the same time
as Xiao Xis classes. But, I definitely cant choose classes that are the same as his, even
though that would allow us to have more opportunities to communicate with each other. I
estimate that the difficulty of the classes he is choosing will be at the A-level. Then I am
doomed to fail. As for me, I must put out a long line to catch a big fish and pick a class that is in
the same teaching building, and ends at the same time. The best would be if the class is next
to his classroom. Then I would have numerous opportunities to see him. I laughed, satisfied,
but then I thought: Oh no, I forgot to ask what classes he chose. I better call him and ask.

Julie hurriedly said, If you chase after him in broad daylight, I will support you as a sister. But
dont forget to not scare the other person. Otherwise you might not even become friends. Even
though girls chasing guys is separated by a layer of muslin [2], you also need to see how much
experience the girl has and how much experience the guy has. Comparing your guyss natural
conditions and the conditions that you must acquire, I am still giving you good advice. Just
now, you said you wanted to use a long term plan to gain major returns. Your head must not
get heated up [3]. Then all you need is a bright announcement to the world that says, Zhou Lin
Lin likes Xie Duan Xi.

All right, I will now officially employ you for my military matters. Your mission is to assist me in
the next half year, no, get Xiao Xi within three months. This is the longest long-term I can
stand. I have never had a plan that exceeded three months before.

Do I get any benefits? Wheres the dowry?

Ill introduce a hot senior brother for you. I swore the oath so, of course, I am blessed to
share.

How hot?

I recalled this: Because each persons opinions vary; the aesthetics are different, and
conclusions are different. I dont dare say that this handsome person is awe-inspiring, but
many people say this senior brother looks like Won Bin. Just believe that his eyes are radiant
and shining.

Then can you bring me, this unknown person, around to look at him a bit?

Ok, no problem! I patted my chest to guarantee it.

https://tranzgeek.wordpress.com/fleeting-midsummer-beijing-universitys-weakest-

I ran to the computer center, secretly downloading a list of professional courses of everyone in
the department, finding Xiao Xis course locations. Haha, I have no way to know your electives,
but the professional course listing is available for everyone to look at!

I adjusted my standard of choosing electives to: A. The time of the course was simultaneous
with Xiao Xis course and in the same teaching building; B. The geographical location was in
sync with Xiao Xi, so that after I finished class, I could see Xiao Xi in the classroom, or when
he finished class, I could go into his classroom and talk with him, then prepare for my next
class; C. The teacher examination methods met the requirements of my IQ; D. The teachers
looks could not be aesthetically unpleasing*, even if he was sanctimonious or dignified, it was
fine.

*This is not word for word with what the Chinese said. The Chinese literally said The
teacher could not look like he was sorry to his students; in other words, the teacher looks
so ugly that the students feel sorry for him.
Of the above, at least one of A/B had to be satisfied, C must be satisfied, and D was a bonus.

Choosing classes like this, I painfully found out that as a German student, and a student with
no interest in the arts, there was only a class called Russian Art that I could choose. It was
consistent with my A, C, requirements, which was not easy.

If you are too fond of your child, you will be unable to hide him from the wolves [4]. F**king,
lets go!

[1] The phrase comes from ?????????????? aka Sturdy Life Does Not Need an
Umbrella by Cattle Quotations. This is an actual bookLin Lin is really badly influenced!

[3] Your head must not get heated up- This means you must not become impulsive.

Chapter 6- Computer Class


I entered the school that year. Peking University allowed you four weeks to pick your courses.
Besides professional courses, everyone could also freely pick elective courses. You could pick
any class as long as you got the required credit hours. I grabbed the thick selection book, and
began to ponder which classes I would not fail at. I opened the new students manual casually
and found the failing penalties after a time. Peking Uni was still considered extremely selective
when entering, but extremely lenient when exiting it. To take care of the weak students that
were unable to adapt, if new students failed, as long as they made up the class their second
year it would not be included on the transcript. The new students manual also cautioned us not
to overselect the first year, as to prevent failing from not enough energy. Of course, I would
solemnly obey this instruction, as my brain had enough to worry about with the professional
courses. As long as I could get all my credits in four years, everything would end.
I turned to ask the others: Have you learned German before?
They were really very honest: No, but after I applied for this department, I applied for a
summer class for a while.

I could not believe it and sighed: You guys just finished the Gao Kao and you still participated
in a summer class? Why is it that after I took the Gao Kao, I felt like this servant* was liberated,
and became as wild as a crazy horse? You guys are too shameful!
She is referring to herself in third person (more specifically, she is referring to herself as
this servant)
Julie laughed: Wasnt everyone afraid of the huge competition? We all said we cant lose at
the starting line. I heard that there were also people who grew up speaking German around
also. Our days wont be easy!
I sighed, This kind of crime is simply outrageous! My God~~ why dont we just hit a wall and
forget about it?!
Wen Tao comforted me: Dont think more about it. Learning German for these four years, you
dont need to learn math, and you probably dont need to read English. The objective is just to
let us concentrate on reading the German language. And the language relies on diligence to
learn it. Everyday we have to wake up early to read it for an hour. Then it will definitely be
fluent.
I looked down: Everyday in the early morningthen wont you have returned to high school? I
cant
But as a single person, I could not reverse this trend.
Our floor was all from the foreign language department. Every morning, a group of girls would
have a cup full of water in the bathroom to practice their sounds and pronunciations. The first
time I heard it, I thought I was in the suburbs, and what I heard was the sound of frogs. So I
could only practice with water every day, but I didnt know why, every time while I practiced, I
would swallow the water. This made me full of nausea. Even if I moved or didnt, I would be
stimulated: there would often be a lot of girls screams beside me: I pronounced it, I
pronounced it, listen
Oh, they really had too much against people. My intelligence couldnt compare with the others,
unless it was that my organs were a little lacking than otherss organs? Why could everyone
sound it, while I hadnt made any improvement at all this past month. I forcibly opened my
mouth as I looked into the bathroom mirror, and began to analyze my oral structure. Right
when my mouth was about to get sore, someone patted my back, Hey Lin Lin!
I closed my mouth with difficulty. From the mirror, I saw Ru Ting standing by my side. I turned
and greeted her: Hi, so coincidental.
Ru Ting laughed, We live in the same building. I can never find you at all. What were you
doing just now? Do you have a cavity?
Youre the one whos grown a cavity! I took a step back and said, how can the one who has a
cavity be her! I laughed: No, no, its just that theres a little inflammation on the tonsils.
Ru Ting anxiously asked: Did you eat medicine?
I waved my hands: Theres no need to eat medicine. Drinking water is fine. The Beijing
weather is a little more dry, one should drink more water.
Thats right. You and Yuke are all Southerners. Coming to the North, you must not be used to

the department, finding Xiao Xis course locations. Haha, I have no way to know your electives,
but the professional course listing is available for everyone to look at!

I adjusted my standard of choosing electives to: A. The time of the course was simultaneous
with Xiao Xis course and in the same teaching building; B. The geographical location was in
sync with Xiao Xi, so that after I finished class, I could see Xiao Xi in the classroom, or when
he finished class, I could go into his classroom and talk with him, then prepare for my next
class; C. The teacher examination methods met the requirements of my IQ; D. The teachers
looks could not be aesthetically unpleasing*, even if he was sanctimonious or dignified, it was
fine.

*This is not word for word with what the Chinese said. The Chinese literally said The
teacher could not look like he was sorry to his students; in other words, the teacher looks
so ugly that the students feel sorry for him.
Of the above, at least one of A/B had to be satisfied, C must be satisfied, and D was a bonus.

Choosing classes like this, I painfully found out that as a German student, and a student with
no interest in the arts, there was only a class called Russian Art that I could choose. It was
consistent with my A, C, requirements, which was not easy.

If you are too fond of your child, you will be unable to hide him from the wolves [4]. F**king,
lets go!

Chapter 7- Buying a Computer (1)


It wasnt too convenient if one didnt have a computer at school. Right now, turning in
homework also required a digital version, and I had to run to the Calculation Center to do a
problem. Even though the charges were inexpensive, comparing it to the five dollar allowance
the dorm gave to each individual person, the Calculation Center was not too convenient, not to
mention, doing homework while eating snacks. The foot stench of the guys beside me made
me unable to continue staying there. I decided to go buy a computer.

But I knew nothing of computer problems. Even though there had always been a good Silicon
Valley computer square nearby, as a computer idiot, I completely didnt understand the CPU
the ads spoke of, inner core, outer core. I asked Julie: Julie, have you bought a computer?

My dad rewarded me when I got into Peking Uni, and already sent me a laptop. But I was
afraid that bringing a laptop to school at the start would make for too much publicity.

F**k, is saying this to me directly, not called publicity? Then what will I do? Unless I should go
to the Southern gate and enter Silicon Valley directly; slap my money on the table and say:
Boss give me a computer!

This is not bad. There is boldness, a sense of a local money lord, and a upstart personality.
Haha why dont you call your Brother Xiao Xi to help you, and you can even create an
opportunity to meet. First, he comes, then you treat him to a meal as thanks. You two will be
unfamiliar with each other at first, but later you two will warm up to each other.

This idea is not bad. But. If he asks me about what configuration requirements I have, and I
dont know, then wont It seem like an idiot?

Hey, this is nothing to worry about. The typical girl buying a computer will be a little weaker in
knowledge, which will better reflect the guys sense of accomplishment. Otherwise, will he also
further explore with you what kind of CPU you want, what kind of memory plays games
smoothly, and how to get to pornography movies quickly?

I felt she had a point. Just because someone had a high IQ didnt mean that he knew
everything. He could be the occasional computer idiot, and he wouldnt see through my IQ. He
might also feel my stupidity made me cute. As my thoughts led me here, I got out my phone
and began to write a text: Xiao Xi, do you have time this weekend? After I finished writing it, I
felt this text was too common and changed it to: Xiao Xi, can you help me with something this
weekend? No, this was too light. Xiao Xi, I must request your help this weekend. Nope, this
was too formal.

After thinking for half the day, I finally sent this text: Xiao Xi, do you have time this weekend?

After I finished, I looked at my phone so hard that my eyes got sore. My cell phone didnt move
at all. With great difficulty, I troubled myself to open my phone, and it only said 10086: Your
credit balance is less than 10 yuan. I immediately collapsed, and decided to go out, run
around,and then come back and check.

When I got downstairs, I felt that running was too pointless, as if I had nothing better to do and
it even wasted my energy without increasing my IQ at all. I could only head left towards the
supermarket to buy some ice cream.

After I walked a few steps, I discovered Xiao Xi kicking a soccer ball, walking over from the
opposite side. I wondered if I should pretend I didnt see anything, return to go check my texts,
or say hi, but thenhow should I say hi. Before I could finish my internal conflict, Xiao Xi
waved at me and said, What are you thinking about, Lin Lin? Be careful that you dont bump
into a wall when you look down while you walk.

I laughed dumbly: I was just thinking of a problem I was just doing. I havent answered it yet.
Haha.

Xiao Xi kicked the soccerball over and asked me: Dont you guys not do math? What question
has stumped you?

I was speechless for a moment. I thought about it and said, Logic problem, in the magazine, I
saw a logic problem, and I didnt have anything to do, so I decided to try it. If we have time Ill
let you do it. When I finished, my own face reddened. I only had one magazine by the name of
Salon, unless my logic problem was researching how to destroy the womens faces with
some kind of sulfate?

Xiao Xi quickly replied: All right. The sweat on his forehead shone in the sunlight.

I laughed and said, I just sent you a text, and wanted to ask you if you had any plans this
weekend. I want to go buy a computer, but I dont understand any of it, and Im afraid I will be
scammed.

Xiao Xi pointed to his soccer ball and told me: Just now I went to go play soccer, so I didnt
bring my cell phone. This weekend, I probably shouldnt have anything to do, but computers
are Yukes strongsuit. Initially, he wanted to register for the Department of Computer Science,
but he didnt want to make his interest into a professional job study so he registered for
economics.

Ah? There are even people who dont want to be a professional in their interest?

Everyone thinks differently. He felt if he had to see different books daily, and force himself to
take many tests, it would make him less and less interested in his favourite topic.

Thats really a pity. But he probably has to accompany Ru Ting over the weekend. So it should
still be you who helps me buy it, Xiao Xi. I begged.

You know Ru Ting? Xiao Xi was a little thrown off, and continued to say: No problem, see
you on the weekend.

I ran back to my dorm like a baby, completely forgetting the matter of buying ice cream.

On the weekend, I woke up early, and even woke Julie up: Julie, Julie, wake up soon. I am
going to see my hubby soon and leave. Will you help me look at my outfit and see if it makes
me look pure?

Julie turned around: Sister, its finally the weekend. Just let me sleep peacefully.

I squeezed Julies face: Just help me take a look, just a glance. Does it look pure?

Julie hazily sat up: Does anyone ask someone else if they look pure? Does your hubby like
people who look pure?

He looks very pure, and he must like pretty ladies.

Sex-crazed women or pretty women? Change into a different skirt. Right now you look too
childish. If I put your hair into two pigtails, youll look like someone just going into middle
school. And change into some sneakers before you leave. Youre going shopping and not
mountain climbing, right?

Then what should I do? I anxiously asked Julie.

Julie got up and went into her cabinet to take out a green dress. In front of me, she gestured:
Wear this one. I wore it once before I lost weight, and now it doesnt look good on me. I dont
have any skirts. Theyre all at home.

Then what about shoes? I looked at her.

Julie said, You can only go to the supermarket and buy some. Nearby, theres a mall but it
hasnt opened yet. Youll definitely think my shoes are too big for you.

So it was like this that I ran to the supermarket in the morning, and bought the first high heels
of my life.

When everything was ready, I looked at my watch. It was already the appointed time. I
breathed deeply and asked Julie: Does this look okay?

Looks good, looks good, you look as noble as the Royal Mrs Chiang** (TLN: its a chinese
saying. Basically, a Mrs Chiang was the epitome of nobility ).

I walked down the stairs. To tell the truth, wearing high heels for my first time and running into
the hands of my crush was risky. But, I had to crush the bold, and stave the weak. I decided to
go out like this. Ru Ting wore high heels all the time, how was I unable to do so too? Hmph.

Downstairs, I saw Xiao Xi. I was just about to wave, but I saw Fang Yuke was there too. I
asked him softly: How come youre also here?

He cocked his eyebrow: Xiao Xi said youre going to buy a computer and wanted me to come
consult too.

Xiao Xi followed with: Yup, the more people there are, the more references we can get.

F**k, an unwanted third party was uncalled for. Wheres Ru Ting? I pretended to ask.

I dont know. Fang Yuke turned and said, Lets go.

Thus, the two person date I had envisioned, turned into a three person group.

I complained incessantly along the way. They were both guys, and when they walked they
would walk quickly. This was my first time wearing high heels, so as I walked, I would limp, and
the new shoes rubbed me intensely. Originally, the journey from Peking University to Silicon
Valley would only take a few minutes, but now I had to take a step and stop for a moment. The
only thing missing was me taking off my shoes and walking with bare feet.

Xiao Xi turned back to look at me and asked: Lin Lin, your countenance doesnt look too great.
Are you uncomfortable?

I immediately pasted on a smiling face: How could I? When I usually walk, it is always slower.

Fang Yuke looked at me, then he looked at my feet and said, Poor squandering (time or
money).

I hated that I couldnt take off my shoes and throw them onto his face. After enduring it for a
moment, and weighing my options, I said to Xiao Xi: Xiao Xi, what about this, I feel there isnt
a point to having so many people going to go buy a computer. Fang Yuke and I will be enough.
If we three people go buy a computer, the store people will think were robbing the store.

Xiao Xi laughed: No, weve already gotten here. Ill accompany you to go buy it.

I persistently said, No need, really no need. I can just go with Fang Yuke.

Xiao Xi was a little awkward. He shook his head: Then all right. Ill go back and watch the
game. After youve bought it, send me a short text.

I nodded: En, of course. Im sorry for bothering you, Xiao Xi.

When I saw Xiao Xi leave by himself, I felt very comfortable. What did letting the cooked duck
fly away mean? What did shortfall mean? Forget it, I couldnt let him see my limping
appearance. Today I had been too unwise. Wearing a pair of sandals was so much stronger
than wearing a pair of heels.

I sighed, took off my high heels, and said to Fang Yuke: Lets go.

Fang Yuke pointed to my feet: Were going like this?

I was angry. My aggrieved feelings from just now burst out in one go: What do mean going like
this? Do you disapprove? Am I not allowed a cool reprieve? Will I lose your face? If Im going
to lose your face then you can return. I originally thought today would be great, but why does
God love to play with me? As I said this, my eyes began to ache.

Fang Yuke had no idea what he did wrong. He didnt think that I would have such an outburst:
I didnt mean this. I meant that walking with bare feet would be uncomfortable. What if you get
an open wound on your foot and get tetanus or something.

Why are you cursing me? Then what about it? Will you piggyback me? Do you think were
filming a drama here? Do you think youre a noble wealthy man from whatever house? Plus, I
am not any Cinderella. I am the unequalled King Kong beautiful maiden! As I kept talking
farther and farther away from my original topic, I had probably been infuriated to no end. I
could not think about whether the things I spoke of had any logical relationship to my original
argument anymore.

Fang Yuke was happy: What hogwash are you talking about? If you want me to piggyback
you, then you can just say something. If you dont say anything how would I know that you
want me to piggyback you? I might have actually piggybacked you if you had just asked.

He spoke in circles just like the monk, Tang Sen in Journey to the West. This was my first
time knowing Fang Yuke could be so talkative.

I glared at Fang Yuke and didnt speak.

Fang Yuke got a little scared and upset by my staring, and timidly asked me: Why arent you
saying anything?

I humphed: Fang Yuke, do you have paraphrenia or are you bipolar? Why do you suddenly
change from the cold faced killer to such an immature monk? In the future, when you change
characters, let me know, and I can prepare in my heart. Im afraid my weak spirit will be unable
to stand such a blow. If I pass away one day, will you be able to face my mother?

Fang Yuke laughed and retorted: How is my changing characters more powerful than you?
When Xiao Xi is in front of you, you pretend youre a fairy who doesnt need to eat or drink, but
when youre in front of me, youre almost like a vixen.

What vixen? Whore you saying is the vixen? I put a hand on my hip and asked him.

Look at your posture. Barefoot and hands on your hips. If you arent like a vixen then what
else are you like?

At the most, I am a barefooted fairy, understand?

More like a fairys stepmother.

I was enraged and yelled at him: Go buy me some shoes!

Really, we were quarrelling near the Wu Mei supermarket. Fang Yuke took my high heels to
compare the sizes and left. After a while, he returned with a pair of sneakers.

Fang Yuke shook the shoes around: Fairy, do you need me to crouch down to help you
change into these?

Fleeting Midsummer (Peking Universitys Weakest Student)
Nope. This work should be left to my hubby. I cant give you an advantage. I snatched the
shoes and changed into them.

Yeah right! I helped you buy a skirt and pants, and now some shoes? Fang Yukes face
looked terrible.

I quickly took out a few yuan from my bag from the money I was going to use to buy the
computer: For you, for you. Im afraid I forgot to give you your money. Jeanswest isnt any
luxury brand, so you dont have to be like this. When you buy me some Chanel clothing then
well talk.

Fang Yukes face looked even worse. He shoved my money back into my bag and walked
ahead angrily.

Wearing sneakers was great. I immediately felt like I could fly. I caught up to him: Brother, I
was kidding. I dont have a status, how could I let you buy expensive clothes for me. Last time,
wasnt it lucky?

Fang Yukes face didnt warm up: So if you have a status, you can buy clothes. Then after you
buy clothes, does that represent that you have a status? Really.

When you speak, can you hear the focal point or not? I also got mad. You arent my hubby,
why do I still have to coax you, ah. The important part is, important part is- What was my
important part again? After he diverged topics, I got confused.

Fang Yukes tight face suddenly laughed: Say, why is your temper still so fiery?

Dont pretend that youre very familiar with me. What are you talking about: still so fiery? My
temper has always been great, usually I am always gentle. Before I knew you, I was a lady.
Usually, people would resent the fact that my voice was too light and too gentle. Its only that
you incite matters too much, so this cannot be blamed on me.

The corner of Fang Yukes mouth were about to be drawn back to his ears: En, before you
were really a lady, absolutely a lady!

When he laughed at me, I was a little flustered. When I was in high school, I also had my
valiant moments, but at that time, we still had not recognized each other. Why did it seem that
when he laughed, he knew something? I shot him a look: Hey, what are you laughing at?
Where do I seem unladylike?

Fang Yuke laughed: First, I want to prove that you are a girl, and then prove you are a lady.

I was so furious that I just couldnt hold it in: Prove it, prove it, prove I am a girl! This sentence
was a little too loud, and made the passerbys continuously cast sidelong glances at us.

Fang Yuke was a little embarrassed: Youre a little too unconventional, right? Theres no
opportunity for me prove you that are a woman with this large crowd.

I finally passed him, annoyed.

When we got in front of Silicon Valley, Fang Yuke asked me: What are you mainly going to
use the computer for? If your usage is not the same, then the configuration focus will not be the
same.

I laughed: Ill use it for typing.

Fang Yuke lifted his head towards the sky. It seemed that a long time had passed before he
asked me a question: I dare ask this idiot, besides typing, what other work will you use it for?

Going online.

Please be more specific.

For example, Ill get on BBS, visit forums, read web novels, write love letters to my hubby.

For a more specific question, which hubby?

Of course its Xiao Xi. After I said this, I discovered my slip of the tongue, but I immediately
made a zipper action on my mouth: The heavens know of this, the earth knows of this, and
you and I know of this, all right?

All of a sudden, Fang Yuke didnt speak and only stared at me. I was stared at so much that
my heart seemed to become upset, and added: At the most, you may allow Ru Ting to know
of this too.

Fang Yuke laughed helplessly: Zhou Lin Lin, dont you feel that the secrets between us have
become a little too much? He didnt wait for me to speak and entered the computer store.

Chapter 8- Buying a Computer (2)


The way Fang Yuke asked about computers was extremely different from the way he spoke to
me. Too many times, he would speak sarcastically whenever he spoke to me. Otherwise, he
would speak to me crazily. Right now, it was the first time I had seen his professional image. I
could even envision what he would be like after working. He cross-examined everything from
hardware to software. The boss knew he was an insider and did not give him too high of a
price. An hour later, the computer was sent to the ground level of my dorm.

I greeted the dorm manager while Fang Yuke heaved my computer upstairs.

It was almost as if he had been to my dorm before since he found my spot the moment he went
in, and began to unpack the installation.

All the others in the dorm were there. The moment they saw a strange guy come in, their
gossiping nerves were mobilized.

Julie first pulled me aside: Didnt you go with Xiao Xi? Why did you come back with someone
else? Who is this handsome bro? Why is your face so red? Do you have some relationship
with him that you cant tell other people? If you confess Ill be lenient. If you dont, Ill be strict.

Wang Jie and Wen Tao also came over to hear my explanation. I knew this type of feeling,
being hung up by the gossip that was a type of condemnation. Their curiosity had been
teased. Seeing their desires grow, I laughed uncontrollably: Why is my face so red? You can
try heaving a computer underneath the bright sunlight. As for who he is? Haha, I will be
responsible for telling you guys: He is a legend-

Wen Tao couldnt stand it: You can continue on with your nonsense. But, what kind of
unexpected luck do you have that you can know this handsome bro?

I pretended to angrily say to Wen Tao: Dont you love the literary arts? Why is your way of
speaking just as rough as my mothers? Plus, on what basis am I not allowed to know hot
bros? Backing up another step, the grass over there already has a master so dont even try to
make a move.

Everyone was disappointed. I had completely distinguished the gossip. But Julie still didnt stop
and continued to ask: Who is his real master?

I looked towards the right dorm and pursed my lips: Its the dorm next to the dorm next to us.
Shes called Ru Ting. Shes the pretty one.

Is she the one with two dimples?

I nodded and prepared to completely destroy the flame of gossip that had formed.

Julie said, If its really her then forget about it. I even thought that master of this famous piece
of grass was you. Then I would still feel as if there was a sliver of hope. If you, like this,
managed to hook in that handsome bro, it would really boost the morale of all the single ladies
in town too much.

Inner quality, notice my inner quality! So what if Im like this? Just wait until I get Xiao Xi into
my hand. Ill be the first one to show my photo in Peking Unis BBS.

Haha, then you can win instant success. Right now, a lot of netizens are scolding university
students pretty fiercely. Theyll scold Peking Uni students even more harshly. Your pic will
definitely be able to be reposted numerous times. The heading will be 10 years of a female
student from Peking Uni are just like a day of craziness. The males even cannot help but be
forced to give themselves wholly to the gals for more happiness and good fortune.

I was so amused that I laughed. I looked back and saw Fang Yuke had already finished
downloading the various softwares. He asked me: Do you usually use xx or MSN?

xx, support domestic products!

Do you use outlook for emails or do you go directly to your 163 inbox?

Ill use whichever is more convenient. Ive never used outlook.

What browsers are you accustomed to using?

https://tranzgeek.wordpress.com/fleeting-midsummer-beijing-universitys-weakest-

Fleeting Midsummer (Peking Universitys Weakest Student)
Any.

What kind of video player do you use?

Any.

I felt he was doing this on purpose. Fine, just keep on showing off.

When Wang Jie heard this, she immediately walked in front of Fang Yuke: Hello, can you help
me look at my computer? My computer has been a little slow recently. I think its been infected
by a virus.

Fang Yuke nodded and said, After a while, I can help you kill the virus. Wait just a moment. I
have to help her download some things. After he finished, he said to me, Dont you usually
read online novels? You can use XunLei to download it or use BT to download it. But it is a
little bad for the computer, it is a mutual way, so-

I interrupted him: Even if you say this, it is of no use. I dont understand it. As long as I know
how to download it and how to use it, Ill be fine.

Fang Yuke ignored me, and walked to Wang Jies computer to begin his work.

After he came back to examine my computer, my BT had already finished downloading. Peking
Unis wifi was really quick. I double clicked on the downloaded file and turned around to say to
Fang Yuke: Isnt it easy? After its downloaded, it can begin to play.

Fang Yuke ignored me and only stared at the screen, as he looked at me.

On the screen, a guy and a girl were naked, as they moved around on the bed, the most
important parts of the body revealed. I was startled, and immediately stood up. The mouse was
also knocked onto the floor.

A Come on!! sound came from the computer as well as other similar sounds.

My face was all distorted. At the side, a few dormmates came over, hearing the sounds. At this,
I reacted and immediately took the mouse and tried to exit the screen but my hand shook too
much and no matter how hard I tried to click on the red x it was not successful.

The guy on the screen had already ejaculated, and the video ended. The total time was 1 min
10 sec.

My mouth was a little dry. I cleared my throat and said, No wonder it was so quick. It turned
out the file was so small, just a few megas. Haha.

Fang Yuke didnt speak.

At this, I realized that my words were a little prone to interpretation: My meaning was, I
originally didnt know it was such a small file. No, I meant that I do not regret it, I wouldnt have
wanted a file that was longer. En, no this isnt it. I meant that in the future, I dont want to
download these types of little files.

Fang Yuke couldnt help but laugh.

Idiot. Fang Yuke laughed, and came in front of my computer and deleted the video. Then he
lowered his head and said to me: This matter, is it, the heavens know of it, the earth knows of
it, and you and I know of it?

I nodded.

Fang Yuke suddenly became warm and said, I just knew you would have a lot of problems. In
the future, dont download random things. If you want to look at anything, just tell me. I can
download it and give it to you. I used to use MSN. Ill register for a xx then. Oh.

My ear was a little hot. Before, he had such a poisonous tongue that I knew how to react. But
in a moment, he became so warm that I wasnt used to it. Plus, the topic had arisen because of
that video.

I touched my face and felt it was too hot. I immediately found an excuse and went to the
bathroom to wash my face.

When I returned, Fang Yuke had already finished registering for xx. He looked at me, and had
the cold-killer face again: Your xx number?

I gave him my password. He entered my password in. Invincible King Kong Beautiful Maiden
became the only name in his Friends circle. I saw that his name was Heart Jumps.

Oh, please dont make such a sentimental name, okay? Did watching that porn video make
your heart jump so much that you had to call yourself this? I think in the future, you are going to
think of the joke that happened just now, you little rascal. My shame, ah, my shame!

Thus, I said to him: Ive seen a lot of these videos. As a great boy, what is your heart jumping
at? Quick, change your name.

None of your business. This is my freedom. Fang Yuke disdainfully said. Who knows who
watched those type of videos.

I felt that he had exposed my big talk. It was a little awkward. So I could only say: I meant that
I have already understood these matters. The passionate intercourse of a male and female is
something that will happen sooner or later.

I didnt know when Julie came along, but the moment she heard what I said, she immediately
glanced at me and then at Fang Yuke. At last, she couldnt help but say: Lin Lin, where did
you go last night? Did it already happen? With who? Who? Who? She hugged my two hands
and began to shake it up and down.

I was a little dazed by all her shaking: What what? Nothing happened. Just now, a very normal
thing happened that should not have happened so I was just commenting on it with a few
words.

Oh. Julie was a little disappointed. She suddenly thought of something and said to Fang
Yuke, Lin Lin is a very traditional person. Dont mind too much on the words she just said.
Right Lin Lin? Then, she confidently helped Fang Yuke reply: But then again, no one will
really notice your ideas.

I was wholly defeated, so I raised my hand in surrender and said, Heavens ah, please grant
me my intact corpse.

Fang Yuke laughed for a while and didnt speak. He prepared to take his things and leave. I
was conflicted for a long time on how to show my gratitude, so I decided to specially bring him
to the cafeteria to eat dinner. Right as he left the dorm, I heard a very familiar voice say: Yuke,
why would you be here? I turned and saw it was Ru Ting.

Heavens, why didnt you even leave me with an intact corpse? You know that this encounter
will cause this woman much resentment right?

I immediately smiled to Ru Ting and said, What? Today I borrowed your Fang Yuke. I dont
really understand computers, so I had to trouble him to help me buy a computer. I didnt have
time to invite him for a meal. Theres nothing like the present, so why dont we all go eat dinner
today together.

Ru Ting made a show of sudden realization: Oh, Yuke is pretty great at computers. All right,
where will we eat? Then Ill hitchhike on Yukes portion and eat a meal from you.

Hitchhike then, feel free to hitchhike. Ill let you take advantage of my willingness I laughed.
My heart was bleeding. I had just bought a computer when I was __ by someone. What kind of
fate was this? As for the place, you can arrange it.

All right. You guys are both Southerners. Then lets go to Su Zhe Hui. It isnt far from here. If
we get a taxi, we can get there in 10 minutes.

F**k! Really cheating me of my money. Your guys in your household are really worth too much
money, right? After a lot of time were just going to go to Su Zhe Hui and pay? I courageously
laughed: All right, lets go to Su Zhe Hui.

Fang Yuke suddenly said, Im hungry, we can eat whatever. Why must we get in a car to go to
eat? Lets just eat at school. I want to taste the broiled fish.

The dish he is referring to is actually a famous dish made in Sichuan, broiled in hot chili oil
He was really worthy of being someone in the same hometown. When he had a goal, he
chased after it. I pretended to be very conflicted: Then what will I do? Then itll be too casual.

Ru Ting looked at Fang Yuke. She looked a little unhappy but still said, Then lets eat at
school.

Thus, the three of us went to the school cafeteria.

It was exactly 12:00. The cafeteria was very noisy. In the high density environment, I quickly
found a few classmates who were about to finish eating. I kept glaring at them until they
couldnt stand it and left quickly. The girl who was about to leave even said, Do you let people
even eat? Glaring at us like youve never seen food. I pretended I didnt hear it and quickly
took my key out and threw it towards the table, proclaiming my sovereignty over the table to
everyone. From far away, I waved my hand to Fang Yuke and Ru Ting, indicating that they
should follow. Ru Ting leisurely walked over, like she was walking on a red carpet.

I kissed up to Ru Ting and waited her to sit. Then, I flatteringly asked: What do you want to
eat? In fact, I really wanted to whip myself. The other party was so much more noble and
grand. Why should I try to get the desired outcome in such a lowly way? Did I really look like a
servants honor and glory? I didnt do anything against her. At the most, I only borrowed Fang
Yuke for half the day. Was it worth it?

Ru Ting lightly said, Anything is fine. As long as it doesnt have green onions, scallions, or
garlic.

F**k! All of these dishes have green onions, scallions, or garlic, okay? You really are picky.

I immediately said all right, Then you wait here. Ill wait in line and buy it.

Fang Yuke also stood up and said to me: Ill go with you. Can you carry three peoples meals
all by yourself?

You guys sit down. I can go. I can definitely carry it back. I can even use my foot to carry it
back. If you help me carry it, and give this noble lady the cold shoulder, can it be even clearer
than that?

Fang Yuke ignored my words and walked towards the window without turning around.

As I watched Ru Tings face I began to panic. I didnt dare say more words and quickly went in
line to buy food. Fang Yuke asked me: What do you want to eat?

Whatever. I said absent-mindedly.

There is no dish by the name of whatever. Fang Yuke rebutted ruthlessly.

I could only choose a few dishes that didnt have green onions, scallions or garlic: Chinese
brocolli edible tree fungus, celery with lilies, vinegar on julienned potatoes, and eggs with
tomatoes.

Fang Yuke glanced at me: Did you really change into a vegetarian?

Nonsense, wasnt it what your friend wanted to eat?

Fang Yuke was a little unhappy: How would you know what my friend wants to eat? When he
waited in line, he said to the chef: Chef, I want two chicken legs, one meal of red braised pork,
a meal of quick fried diced chicken, and another portion of tomatoes with eggs, and a meal of
Chinese brocoli edible tree fungus. Then, he put his food card into the machine.

I gave him my card: Didnt we agree that I would treat today?

Ive said it before, Im not used to letting girls treat.

I didnt treat you to a meal, I want to treat Ru Ting and treat you to a meal while Im at it,
okay?

Fang Yuke didnt have any way to stop me so in the end, he compromised.

After we got our meals to the table, Ru Ting was finally a little impatient, but she couldnt show
it. She could only say: Yuke, Im a little thirsty. Go help me buy something to drink.

Fang Yuke asked: Do you want some? Lets go buy it together.

I shook my head.

Fang Yuke got up and went to go buy the drinks.

Ru Ting began to take out her napkin and wipe the table: Yuke loves cleanliness. This table is
definitely dirty to him.

I thought of Fang Yuke wiping the table with a napkin before. This person was clean. These
traits showed that these two people were predestined to be married to each other. People who
dont belong together dont get to live together

Ru Ting saw I didnt have anything of a reaction and could only follow with: Have you noticed
that Fang Yuke treats you in a special way?

I didnt know if I should ask this question back to her or ask a different question or answer it. If I
answered it wrongly, I would create a huge trouble, so I could only throw the question back at
her: What do you think?

I think he is a pretty good person, always warm-hearted towards everyone. Ru Ting continued
to wipe the table.

Haha, if Fang Yuke was called a slightly mean guy, then no one would dare say they were a
bastard. But so as not to attack her, I continued to say: Really? Maybe its because he has
been told to do so. My mom asked him, but maybe he still had some pressure. Haha. I dont
know if hes good to other people. But he has a very good temperament. When I got to here, I
wanted to vomit. What was a good temperament? Bright eyes? High nose? White teeth? I
began to laugh, minding my own business.

Fang Yuke grabbed a drink and came over. He bought a bottle of green tea for Ru Ting and
bought a bottle of mineral water for me. This was the difference between a girlfriend and a
friend. Fang Yuke asked: What are you guys laughing about?

Ru Ting drank a sip of tea: Lin Lin said you have a good temperament. Oh, it looked like this
wise and virtuous nature was innate. If I was thirsty, I would definitely gulp it down. How was it
possible to only drink a little sip?

Fang Yuke laughed as she asked me: Where did you see this temperament from?

I didnt pretend: From your black glasses, I can see that you have a lot of potential and a good
temperament. Definitely.

Ru Ting laughed: Yuke, then if you break your glasses youll be a bad guy.

I wont break my glasses randomly. Im afraid my hotness would scare people away.

Narcissism, narcissism, if you werent narcissistic, you wouldnt be the devil.

Aside from Ru Tings guarding eyes, I ate the meal quite happily. The degree of grease on the
chicken legs was appropriate, the red braised meat was very appropriate. I suddenly realized
something and turned to Fang Yukes back: Didnt you want to eat braised Sichuan fish?

Fang Yuke was thrown aback, and after a while he said, I finished buying everything already.
Next time.

Ru Ting immediately asked: Yuke, when did you begin to like eating fish?

Fang Yuke ignored her.

I felt there was a burst of chilly wind between these two, and felt it was still best to slip away.

When I returned to the dormitory, the people in the dormitory were all ready to pounce. Julie
commanded: Close the door and hit the dog.

The three people pounced.

I lifted my white flag at once: Sisters, I was wrong. I definitely will reveal everything I know. I
beg my great superiors to distinguish right from wrong and let this little woman off.

The three people sat still and upright and began the interrogation.

Name? Wen Tao began the questioning.

Zhou Lin Lin.

I didnt ask for your name.

Oh, Fang Yuke.

How long have you known him?

Not yet for a full month.

Why did you let that Ru Ting get him?

It seems the two families are very close. Theyve both met the others parents.

I think you should let go of Xiao Xi and officially seek shelter from him.

Why?

Hogwash. If you seek shelter from him now, with a challenge, then you will have a feeling of
success. From what I see of Ru Tings brand clothing and branded purses, shes basically like
a fake person. Theres no difference when you compare her to a model. I heard she rarely lives
in the dorm, and has never even gone into the cafeteria. We even suspect shes being kept as
a mistress. Its fine if shes being kept as a mistress but why must she be provided for by a hot
guy? It will be better if youre the one whos provided for by him. Then we can all benefit from
associating with you. Julie resentfully curled her lip.

You have to think your worlds over. Maybe shes being provided for by a rich merchant, and
she also seduced Fang Yuke? Wang Jie broke out the news, astonishingly. All the rumors in
the world probably started like this.

I waved a hand at her: Why do my sisters have so much interest towards this hot guy? Is it the
pure appreciation of aesthetics or is it enmity towards Ru Ting?

Both. This time, their hearts were pretty aligned.

Really, I wanted to introduce her to Julie in the beginning. Wen Tao you can continue to
seduce your teachers. Theyve all married, and youre still so strongly attached so even if I
introduced him to you, you wouldnt cherish it; Jieer you can go to the side too. **You dont
have to eat from this bowl, look at whats inside the pot nor whats cooking on the stove
**basically, dont pay any attention to him

Julie hugged me fiercely: Its still Lin Lin who understands how to cherish people.

But let me first make it clear. I dont have any complaints of being the third party but in the
future dont tell anyone that Ive helped you with this before, otherwise there will definitely be
retribution.

Dont worry. If lightning strikes, I will block it for you. Plus, is Ru Ting really Fang Yukes
girlfriend? When you went to eat, Fang Yuke and your distance was closer than his and Ru
Tings distance. Maybe Ru Tings feelings are just her wishful thinking. A spoiled young woman
like her is hard to wait upon. Julies analysis was absolutely great.

What about this? First you call him and ask if Ru Ting is his girlfriend. This way, I will not have
a burden on my soul.

Am I crazy? If the other person says he is, then what should I say? Should I say, I hope you
both have 100 years of happiness? I retorted, annoyed.

First try it. Counter the problems as you meet them. I believe in you!

I was forced until I had no choice, so I could only call the cold killer on my cell phone.

The music played for a long time, when the phone finally picked up: Hello, who is it?

En, it was a girl? Ru Tings voice! I hadnt thought that my first move would be so evil. How
should I respond? I could only pinch my nose and ask: Excuse me, is this Mr. Fang? I am from
Daxing Insurance Company.

The other end of the phone became fainter and fainter: No wonder Yuke called this contact
Idiot. Why doesnt it sound like a guy or a girl.. She put the phone down before she even
finished the conversation.

My face immediately turned green, as I complained to the phone: What do you mean neither
a girl nor a guy? Birds of a feather flock together. Two people now have questioned my
femininity. Where do I not seem like a girl??

Julie, who was next to me, patted my shoulder: When youre listening, listen to the focal point,
Lin Lin. The important point is that the other person has named you Idiot on his contacts list.
This is the point at which you should be angry. When she said you werent a girl or a guy when
you pinched your nose, you dont have to be so mad. Plus, I did go to the bathroom with you
before, you are the authentic thing. Otherwise, why wouldnt the great uncle in front of the
bathroom not let you onto the 2nd floor? (Peking University has a public bathroom. The first
floor is for the mens bathroom. The second floor is for the womans bathroom)

At first I hadnt even reacted quickly enough. I even wanted to say Only you uphold justice,
but later I realized something was amiss. When I thought it through, Julie had already crazily
ran out of the dormitory.

Wang Jie patted the dust on her pillow. She began her meaningful and heartfelt words: Lin
Lin, lets be serious. Why do you keep thinking of these matters when youve come to
university?

The moment I heard these words, I lowered my head like a conditional reflex. At the time, when
Junior year had begun in university, the head of the school told me: Zhou Lin Lin, I dont know
what is in your head. There is no abnormality, but if you dont get into a university, that is the
most important part, so you must pass the university entrance exam to get into an
undergraduate school right? You know that our school is currently paying attention to
questionable students like you, so are you willing to be content with this forever? These words
really caused me to think about things seriously. Thus, I made great efforts to prove to the
teacher that I wasnt a fluctuating student. I was a student who got good grades regardless of
many twists and turns!

I eagerly promised and said, Yes ah, we should focus on the midterms. In an instant, it turns
out there are only a few days left and half the semester has already passed..

Wang Jie was speechless when she looked at me. Immediately she interrupted me and said,
Right, half of the semester has already passed but why are you not finished with Xiao Xi? If
you are with Fang Yuke all the time, what official matters can you complete? Didnt you tell
Julie that you would get him within three months? Two months have already passed. I
originally hoped that you could bring your act together over October 1 [1], but you were great,

https://tranzgeek.wordpress.com/fleeting-midsummer-beijing-universitys-weakest-
student/?wref=tp

Fleeting Midsummer (Peking Universitys Weakest Student)
sleeping for 7 days! I really feel resentful towards you for failing to meet expectations and I am
impatient to see improvement.

I looked at her, wringing her hands, and comforted her: You rascal just wanted me to let go of
Xiao Xi and pry open Ru Ting. Why is it that Xiao Xi and I have become a couple again now?

Wang Jie pretended to be angry: Then what would I do? Fang Yuke is already under Julies
attack, do you have a portion? Ill see exactly when you, this girl who is like lukewarm water,
are finally ready to reach boiling temperature?

I laughed: Then what would I do?: I heard he went to Dalian over October 1. He just went to
Beidahe and then to Dalian again. It seems he loves the ocean better. I also love the ocean.

Wang Jie had no way to grab at me anymore: Is there any use for liking the ocean? Then
maybe you two people should watch the ocean together? What if Xiao Xi goes to watch the
ocean with another person? Plus, have you ever met a guy who will go to the seaside when he
has nothing to do? It must be that he was dragged there by a girl, and maybe they are
watching the sun set and rise together, just like in Return of the Condor Heroes [2]. You should
go cry.

I choked for a moment. The Return of the Condor Heroes on TV whirled around through my
head many times. I thought of seeing another person in his room, comforting someone elses
hair, holding hands with someone as they ran across the beach, and my heart felt like it had
been emptied.

Wang Jie saw me not speaking and was afraid she had injured me. Lightly, she asked me: Are
you okay? I was just saying it randomly. Didnt you already check if he had a girlfriend already?
What about you call Fang Yuke again? Does Xiao Xi have a girlfriend?

I dejectedly persuaded: Is there something wrong with me? I asked whether this guy had a
girlfriend or not from morning to dusk. Am I this unmarketable? If Xiao Xi really went to the
beach with his girlfriend, I will, I will.

Wang Jie didnt move, waiting for me to say to die in such a way that someone else also
perishes First rape, then kill First kill then rape and so on- bold visionary words. But I was
afraid i let her down. I hatefully continued: If they really went, I will sing Listen to the Sea [3]
every night to you guys, and annoy you guys to death.

But the moment I was provoked by Wang Jie, I felt I had to carry out this operation no matter
what.

[1] October 1 is PRC day. Schools typically get 1-2 weeks of break for this occasion.
[2] Return of the Condor Heroes is an wuxia TV show. Find more details about it here.

Chapter 10- Two Bags of Snacks (2)
On Tuesday afternoon, we had a class discussion on Russian Art History. The method of
discussion was just for us to separate into different groups, make a PPT and then choose a
https://tranzgeek.wordpress.com/fleeting-midsummer-beijing-universitys-weakest-
student/?wref=tp
DFGA 49
Fleeting Midsummer (Peking Universitys Weakest Student)
team leader to do a presentation. As we had all struggled together for several months,
everyone decided not to allow the teacher to drag the class out, and all the team leaders spoke
very concisely. In the last ten minutes of class, the teacher summed up everything, and even
felt compelled to ask all his students: Was there anything you didnt understand? Do you have
anything to add? We were all unanimously silent and so the teacher announced the dismissal
of class. The teacher really had nothing to say, so the layout of the next paper was scheduled
for the week after the next week and we all scattered like beasts and birds.

I got what I wished for. I could finally wait in front of Xiao Xis classroom entrance for him.

When the bell rang, waves of students walked out of the classroom. I stared closely at
everyones faces, afraid that I would miss my opportunity. My heart almost jumped out of my
chest. I couldnt hear anyone elses voice. Please be more obedient, I know you have a very
strong vitality in your life but you dont need to prove it to me now. If this continues I will
suffocate.

Maybe Xiao Xis aura was different from other people. The moment he pushed out from the
crowd of people, I had already located him with my peripheral vision that swept over everyone.
Maybe it was because he had gym class today because he wore some light colored
sportswear that made him seem like he was very lively. His dimples at the sides of his mouth
overflowed when they appeared.

I pretended I didnt see him and slowly went down the stairs in front of his eyes.

Lin Lin

I was very satisfied when I heard his hoarse voice.

I turned around and surprisedly said, Xiao Xi? So coincidental Hmph, how could it not be
coincidental? Ive been waiting for half a semester. Buddha said, only when you glance back
five hundred times in ones previous life will you be able to exchange it for this lifes brief
encounter. For Xiao Xi, I think I must not have done anything else. My neck turned until it was
almost twisted, and I still hadnt counted all the times I had looked back. Do you not see that I
still have to look back even now?

Xiao Xi laughed: Thats right. Its so coincidental. I havent seen you for such a long time. How
is it? Are you used to everything?

I bashfully lowered my head: En, Im used to it. I originally wanted to return home on October
1, but for the sake of training myself, I didnt go back.

You didnt return October 1? Yuke always returns home on October 1. If I had known this
earlier, I would have called you along over to Dalian. Some people from our hometown
organized a trip to Dalian on October 1. Come with me, Ill treat you to some special local
food.

My heart began to race. Xiao Xi had no girlfriend to go to the beach with nor anyone to watch
the waves fall and rise with. I didnt have to sing Listen to the Sea anymore. Wakaka. My
hand couldnt help but make a victory sign behind his back, as I pretended to say normally:
Really? You went to Dalian? Was Dalian pretty?

Xiao Xi nodded: I told Yuke that I went to Dalian. Did he not tell you of about the gathering of
the people from your hometown? He didnt let you know? This rascal. He himself didnt go, and
even dragged you with him

This stinky brat, he ruined such a big matter for this old woman! Just wait until I get back and
give you what you deserve. I remained calm and collected and said, Maybe he was busy and
forgot. Why didnt you return home?

Xiao Xi laughed helplessly: On October 1, the hospital was busier than usual. Plus, with my
dads bad temper, when the hospital gets busy, hell have to live in the hospital. My mom is a
nurse. In the hospital, she takes care of my dad. If I return home, itll be cold and clean, and not
chaotic enough. Alas, as old people age, their bodies get weaker, and their tempers get worse
with each passing day. Ill go back and visit when hes not busy.

When he said this, I suddenly thought of my parents.

Xiao Xi noticed my wounded appearance and laughed as he patted my shoulder: Lets go, I
still have to treat you to some local food. You look sullen.

I arrogantly entered Xiao Xis dormitory. According to many meanings, being able to enter a
guys dormitory means that you are at least someone who is fated with the opposite sex. If you
let your eyes wander all around the moment you enter, then you can be sure that this does not
prove how pure you are, but shows that you are not popular at all. Julie has burst into the boys
dormitory many times to borrow some CDs with color in them. I think that when she enters her
own house to get those CDs, she probably cant be so liberal.

This was my second time going into the guys dormitory. The first time, I was still confused and
ignorant, but this time I was more firm towards my feelings towards Xiao Xi. On average, at this
moment I was like a small lecher, as I saw everything through lustful eyes.

For example, when I looked at Xiao Xis chair, I wanted to sit on it and feel it move; when I saw
Xiao Xis books, even though I didnt have any motivation to read them, I wanted to touch the
book covers. When I looked at Xiao Xis bed, I also had a notion to ah how sinful. Being with
Julie and Wen Jie, my spirit would probably never be pure again.

Xiao Xi got out a piece of food from his plastic bag, getting out squid pieces, clam meat and
nori. These were basically all dried seafood goods. I laughed and took it, planning in my heart
what I would talk about next. Wouldnt taking the goodies be considering as dodging this blow?
I carefully said, Thank you. Next time, I will treat you to eat. If I only let you treat me, I will feel
a little embarrassed.

Xiao Xi shook his head: Its nothing much, nothing much. Arent you Yukes friend? Plus we
come from the same hometown. Next time Ill let him take you to the hometown reunion, and
get to know some other people. In our small town only you two have no siblings, and the last
few meetings had a lot of prosperous people. Wait until the finals are over and all our fellow
townsmen from Tsinghua University will congregate together.

My heart was very unsatisfied towards the identity that he cast on me. But, due to his
passionate invitation for me to participate in the hometown reunion, I was still happy. I

immediately replied: All right, next time, you must call me. This time, I let Fang Yuke delay us.
Right, why did Fang Yuke return home straightaway without telling anyone?

Eh, his family had gotten a matter of extreme urgency. His grandmother fell down the stairs,
and at the time, his familys housekeeper was standing at the bottom of the stairs, so they were
immediately sent to the hospital. My dad even did the surgery. It isnt that bad, but it put his
whole family into extreme shock. I think if it wasnt for the break over October 1, Fang Yuke
wouldnt have returned.

I didnt expect him to be so filial.

Xiao Xi said without hesitation: Of course. His grandmother was the one who brought him up.
Yuke and I lived in the same courtyard when we were younger. When we were xx years old,
Ru Ting moved over to our place. That little lass stayed by Yukes side every day.
Grandmother even said that they might as well arrange a betrothal between minors. Every time
that moment came, Yuke would fiercely glare at Ru Ting and secretly go to threaten her. He
would even put bugs in her noodles, scaring her and making her scream until her throat was
hoarse. At that time grandmother got scared and forced Yuke to apologize to her. Yuke, this
child, was extremely stubborn and wouldnt apologize under any circumstances.

I didnt think Fang Yuke would have already reached the stage of a betrothal between minors.
It seemed that Julie would have a difficult time. I laughed as I encouraged Xiao Xi to say a little
more. I liked listening to his voice, I liked hearing his memories from his childhood. His eyes
were forever shining with all his light. When his long eyelashes fluttered, I could see a warmth
that overflowed.

Xiao Xi saw that I didnt eat my snacks and prepared to shave an apple for me. The apples
skin turned in circles as it fell. The atmosphere suddenly became very quiet. I could even hear
the sound of the apple peel dropping.

I didnt have anything to say but I said something anyways: It is true that girls cry easily, and
maybe it would even leave a scar for a lifetime. No wonder grandmother was anxious. Really,
I often did this thing too, putting bugs into another persons bowl. At that time, how could I not
see how those pitiful people would keep emotional scars? Alas, I have sinned.

Xiao Xi continued to peel the apple: Actually, grandfather Fang, when he was Principal Fang,
received grace and favor from Ru Tings family, otherwise he might have even have separated
from grandmother. Grandmother felt she owed the other family a lifetime of feelings so she was
even closer to Ru Ting than a related granddaughter. She would rather have let Yuke be
wronged than let Ru Ting suffer. Otherwise, this childs mischievous matters would probably be
ignored. Why would it escalate?

Omg, the other party was not only a childhood sweetheart, but she was even someone who he
owed many lifetimes of grudges to. Putting this on CCTV and airing it would definitely make my
mother and all her female colleagues swoon until they cried one moment and sobbed the next.
This time, Julie really had no chance at all. She had to pass through Fang Yukes obstacle, but
she couldnt pass his

I sighed and said, I didnt think that Fang Yuke was a person of many stories!

Xiao Xi laughed: Your conclusion is so interesting. But every person has stories. It just
depends on whether its a big, small or trivial one.

I also laughed: But, you are so cool. In a courtyard of three people, you all got into Peking
University.

Xiao Xi said, Really, my dad wanted me to test into a Beijing medical college from a young
age. In 2000, Peking University and a medical university merged and my goal became to get
into Peking Universitys medical college. Yuke didnt care where he got in. When he saw that I
got into Peking, he also rushed over quickly. Ru Ting was the same. This child is the same as
when she was little. Seeing that Yuke had this goal, she also tested in.

My heart burst with anger. Testing into Peking University was like a game. If you wanted to get
in, you got in. Plus, how fiercely had Ru Ting studied for this. If she didnt get in, wouldnt she
have decided to retake courses so that she could get into Peking University with Fang Yuke
and listen along?

Xiao Xi didnt notice my expression. He gave me the apple he finished shaving: Yuke wasnt
often with his parents at a young age so he doesnt like to talk to other people and his
personality is more lonesome. When I was ten years old, I moved away. Later, Yuke moved.
Ru Tings family moved to Beijing. Now that were all together, sometimes we talk about
childhood matters. If theres time, we want to go back to the courtyard to take a look.

Really, I was very awkward. I couldnt say: Right, lets go together. That was their beautiful
time, and it only counted as their beautiful memories. I did not have these memories. I was a
little hurt because the warmth Xiao Xi leaked out didnt have my presence in them. At that time,
I was living my own childhood in a different set of parallel lines. I would also catch bugs. I
would also play with my neighbors. Sometimes, I would learn a hot broadcast of Wan Jun as
we played house. But my memories did not have him in them.

I lightly said, Days with memories are great.

Xiao Xi laughed: Yes, having memories is great.

Thats right, compared to when I was little, learning things was very difficult now as a university
student!

Ah! I suddenly thought of: Xiao Xis childhood memories, did he like Ru Ting? Didnt the TV
often play things where A liked B, B liked C, but A, B, and C were all good friends. In I have
not been a big brother for many years [1] MTV played it out like this. Unless Xiao Xi.

Xiao Xi obviously saw that I was scared, and asked me in amazement: What happened?

I stammered: Ru Ting is pretty, it is normal for many people to like her. Its too bad that she
already has someone she likes. Her heart already has someone else, so it is a little more
painful, so you can only rely on your memories to comfort yourself.

Xiao Xi was thrown aback, and he continued to suppress his red face as he laughed: Lin Lin,
your imaginative abilities are too plentiful. I think of Ru Ting as a sister. Youve watched too
many dramas.

I didnt want to sit or stand, so I could only bite the apple, in big bites. But my heart still had
many complicated matters that hadnt happened. After I finished my last bite of the apple, in
spite of my virtuous woman image, I asked Xiao Xi, my mouthful still full of apple: Xiao Xi, in
the future lets go eat lunch and then go to class. We are always at the same place at the same
time, taking class.

Xiao Xi felt it was a little unexpected. After all, eating and going to class resembled the
rudimentary developments of a lover.

I was worried Xiao Xi would refuse, so I continued to patch it up: I am someone who thinks
that eating alone is too boring. Plus, in the afternoon, its easy for me to laze around in my
classes. So I might as well find a superintendent to eat with every week, and treat you to a
meal every week. Itll count as giving your payment for acting as a guardian. Do you want me
to fail my first semester? What a joke, I didnt even tick my attendance at computer science
class and skipped it, so how could I get marks for attendance, which makes up 30% of my
grade . But, forcing me to this point, why dont I just pretend to be an obedient child. By being a
good student I can cheat Xiao Xi into eating lunch together every day and make a decision
based on this. Without a doubt, I would choose the latter. In the end, Im just pretending to be a
good and obedient child anyway. In time, Xiao Xi would see my big tail. I would let Xiao Xi
adapt to the circumstances. Wang Jie said one thing correctly. I was the lukewarm water.
Lukewarm water could slowly boil. Haha. You wont even know how you die.

When I saw Xiao Xi nod his head, I imagined I saw a frog slowly dying I turned my head
and smirked at my successful plan.

Xiao Xi received a phone call and said the teacher wanted him to organize some files, so their
discussion could take place tomorrow. I saw that it was not convenient to interrupt his studies
and prepared to go downstairs while holding Xiao Xis plastic bag of local wares.

I thought of how I would be able to have some alone time with Xiao Xi every week from now
on, and I began to yell loudly.I laughed while jumping down the stairs. The sounds of my
laughter echoed throughout the staircase, which was especially strange.

But my laughter stopped as I was going around the corner of the second floor. Because I saw a
familiar cold face, and I knew this cold face meant that he was going to curse Idiot. But today,
this old lady was very happy, so if I was going to be scolded then that was that. The other
person hadnt been with his parents at a young age and hadnt felt the love of a mother; great
people were very magnanimous, so I wouldnt bother about it.

I warmly waved to him: Fang Yuke, hello!

Fang Yuke glanced at the plastic bag I held: What are you doing here? How indecent, youre
running towards the male dormitory.

I already said that I wouldnt bother with him, so I raised the bag: Ah ah, do you see this? Xiao
Xi gave it to me to eat. Do you want to eat some? Im not giving you any, haha. I must eat until
he has reason to give me snacks every single day.

Fang Yuke humphed: Then I will definitely not take it from you. Youll have to eat this little bag
of food for a lifetime.

This poisonous tongue was worthy of being called a poisonous tongue as it easily aroused my
anger: Why didnt you tell me about the hometown reunion at Dalian? You told me he went to
Dalian, but I dont believe that you forgot to tell me about the hometown reunion.

Fang Yuke angrily said, You asked me what he planned to do, so I said he went to Dalian. Its
not like you asked me who organized it? Why do I have to report to you?

He spoke very logically. Indeed, I had not asked. But, I was still someone who had managed to
get into Peking University, so had he really swung around me? I mimicked Julies attitude and
said, If you listen, you must listen to the crucial points. The crucial point is that this hometown
reunion also invited us. Its okay if you dont go, but why must you also deprive me of the right
to know? This is called deliberate concealment, do you have any ulterior motives? If you
confess Ill be lenient. If not, Ill be strict!

Fang Yuke got more furious: How did I deliberately conceal this? What do you want me to
confess? On October 1, I went home alone!

I remembered that he had returned to see his grandmother on October 1, and I felt that I had
crossed the line. The other party was settling his emotional matters, how could he have cared
about playing around.

I pushed him, and planned to just forget about it: I was joking with you. Why are you so
serious? My goodness, you really know how to mad at me. How come I didnt see you getting
mad at Ru Ting? You better just be a henpecked male..

Fang Yuke calmed his temper: Dont drag random things into this mess. Ru Ting isnt my
girlfriend, why do you mention her so often?

She isnt your girlfriend? I became happy. Our Julie had some hope now. I dragged his hand
and locked his eyes on mine and asked: Look into my eyes and say that Ru Ting is not your
girlfriend.

Fang Yukes heart was grossed out by me, but he still looked into my eyes and planned to say
it. The moment he opened his mouth, he suddenly avoided my eyes and lowered his head to
say: Why are you so full of random and meaningless questions?

Oh, I knew it, I knew it. They grew up together. Even if they didnt have the title of being
boyfriend and girlfriend, they had done all the things boyfriends and girlfriends did together.

I sighed and said, Oh, no matter how early someone met you, it wouldnt be earlier than her.

Fang Yukes eyes began to have a bit of brightness and warmth: How would you know
whether I met you later than her?

I sighed again, and continued: Ive only known Julie for two months. I dont need to mention
how many years its been since Ive known her, but do you not even recognize her?

Fang Yuke felt confused, and asked: Julie?

I was particularly generous and said, Someone from our dormitory. She looks like Angelina
Jolie, which is where the meaning comes from. She has nice curves, you guys would definitely
like her. I have no complaints towards Ru Ting, but I just think that you are neither cold nor
warm towards her, and I want to introduce someone more cheerful to you. You are too gloomy.
Thus, I can only sacrifice my friend to save you. Sometime, Ill find an opportunity for you two
to meet. I dont know if Julie, this rascal, would pay more attention to a lover than friends [1],
what if she spreads bad stories about you throughout our dorm? That wouldnt be easy to deal
with

I muttered to myself and was going to speak whatever was written on my heart when Fang
Yukes face changed from red to green. But just as I had gotten used to his poisonous tongue,
he had also gotten used to mine. He threatened me hatefully: Your head doesnt think hard
enough for yourself, so dont even think of worrying about other people.

I ignored him. I planned to go downstairs when Fang Yuke called after me again. I impatiently
turned and said, What is it now?

Fang Yuke was a little discouraged as he said, Come with me for a bit. I brought you some
things when I went back home.

This was only my first time going into Fang Yukes dormitory. But the moment I stepped inside,
I could guess which bed and table belonged to him. As someone who was so OCD, he
wouldnt allow his own things to be like his dorm mates things, which were messy and thrown
around. I was lucky he wasnt such a strong OCD that we would forcing other people to be the
same. Otherwise, the other people would have suffered. I also understood why he could see
which place was mine when he entered my dormitory. He only had to see which place was the
dirtiest and messiest to know which place was my nest.

Fang Yuke walked straight to the table underneath the window and grabbed a bag of snacks
for me. The moment I saw it, I knew it was little snacks from our hometown, and there was
even a vacuumed bag of dried stinky tofu. I hooked up a bag labelled Chang Chong, and I
immediately ripped it open and began to eat it. As the saying goes, after receiving benefits, you
should give face. While I chewed, I thanked him: The taste is really not bad. Hehe, Fang Yuke,
I really am fated with you. See, both of us have the place by the window. If it wasnt for the
shed that stood between the two buildings, we would be right next to each other. In the future,
if we had something up, we could just yell, we wouldnt even need to text or call.

The sunlight came in from the outside, and was about to melt his usually cold face. I lifted my
head and looked at him: Fang Yuke, dont you look great when you laugh? Why must you
always put on such an aged face? Its as if everyone owes you money.

Fang Yuke dragged his chair out and sat down: I was just born like this. Plus, most of the time
when I want to laugh, I get angered again by you.

It was really hard for me to speak calmly to Fang Yuke. I began to look at his bookshelf. It was
different from Xiao Xis professional reading reference books. The books on his bookshelves
were mostly computer books followed by his professional course textbooks. Of course, my
bookshelf was full of professional books. Keke.. The bottom of the bookshelf still held a
bunch of classical music CDs. On the table was a black IBM computer, with the three images
on the computer that were constantly changing. Suddenly, I was curious. I wanted to see what
the cold faced killers laptop had on it. I shook the mouse. It really was very clean. The
screensaver faded after the display of the desktop. There were only four elements: Browser
shortcuts, my computer, Recycle Bin, and there was a folder called My Angel.

Right when I prepared to open the documents, Fang Yuke already closed the notebook. You
rascal. Looking at his nervous appearance, what was he hiding? If you wanted to fight with this
old lady, this old lady is the Iron Kings Invincible Iron girl, and a beautiful maiden with no foes.
I planned to steal his laptop but I didnt think his poisonous tongue reacted faster than I did. He
said nothing about locking the machine and then stuffed his laptop back into my arms and
proudly said, If you know the password then enter it in.

I was speechless. I looked at this rascal who was one meter and eight cm, but was still playing
such a childish game. Of course, if you want to be childish, I can be more childish than you. I
took the laptop, and planned to enter the password. What was this rascals birthday? I thought
for a moment, and thought of that obituary. Usually, I had a bad memory while studying, but
whenever it was gossip, I never forgot it. I began to enter 19840718, error, then I entered
0718 error 18071984, I took all the different groups and I almost finished trying all of them,
but it was still incorrect. I was a little discouraged and bitterly threw the laptop back at him.

Fang Yuke laughed contentedly: You bothered to remember my birthday. Who do you usually
gossip with? Its just that youve remembered the wrong persons birthday. The computers
password is not my birthday. I had a moment of impulse when I thought about calling Ru Ting
to ask when her birthday was. Of course, I knew if I called her now, the cost of this impulse
would be that I would spend an entire year in regret. Ten years is not too late for a nobleman to
take his revenge [2]. I laughed coldly: Hmph, then you better change your password early,
otherwise Ill definitely go inquire when Ru Tings birthday is.

Fang Yuke closed the laptop and began to change into the cold faced killer: Go and ask. If you
have the guts, then ask right now.

Was he goading me? This old lady wasnt that easy to provoke. I laughed and said, Oh its
nothing, its nothing. In the Angel folder, if it isnt a beautiful maidens picture, then it must be a
beautiful maidens video. Its really difficult for Cancers [4] to do things in a Sagittarius [5] style.
If we lay everything down on the table, doesnt this mean that Cancers manage these kinds of
folders using an extremely long path [3]? For example:
C:\WINDOWS\system32\Microsoft\Protect\see\User\TheYearsofOurPassionIgnited

Fang Yuke said, Dirty people have their own dirty methods. Theres nothing I can do if you
want to slander my angel. One day you will regret what youve said.

I laughed and said, I am so scared. But, Fang Yuke, the only time I watched porn was still
when I watched it with someone else. If I was a male, I would be your sworn brother.
Unfortunately, I am a woman and if I treated you like my brother, I would make someone
jealous.

Fang Yuke played with his phone: Continue your wishful thinking. Who is willing to become
brothers with you?

I looked at his phone, and suddenly thought of something: Fang Yuke, I dont care if you dont
want to treat me like your brother. But can I ask you to change my name in your phone. Ill put
up with it if you call me an Idiot, anyway, you are just this virtuous that I can no longer resist.
However, I do not need to be called idiot behind my back right? Am I that idiotic?

Fang Yuke was a little surprised and asked me: How did you know your name was idiot in my
phone?

I laughed: The secret cannot be divulged. In the future, will I still be able to find who the
person Angel is?

Fang Yuke wore an indescribable smile: Until you crack the case, Ill put your name in my
phone as Angel, while the name on my computer will be changed to My Idiot, okay?

I nodded: Agreed!

Chapter 12- A Love That Fizzled Out (1)


The days passed like this, one by one.

Every Tuesday, I could eat lunch with my destined husband. Even though I received satirical
remarks from my dormmates on smearing on lipstick before going to lunch, I still tirelessly
insisted on it. To purposely display my nautiness and my wise and virtuous lady side, I would
leave a grain of rice on my mouth, waiting for Xiao Xi to personally cup my face, and lightly
wipe it of, as he persuaded me and pampered me: Even when you eat youre so restless, but
Xiao Xi even more pretended that it was invisible. Without any better option, I could only wipe
my own mouth clean, otherwise, he would directly say a line of Your mouth has a grain of rice
at the 2:00 position, and force me to manifest my IQ.

Every Wednesday morning, at computer class, I could also see Ru Ting and Fang Yuke
become two back figures together, as they sat next to me, adhering rigidly to the
arrangements. I really admired Fang Yuke that rascal, a computer expert, who could actually
sleep at 8:00 pm which was the prime opportunity to listen to computer introductions and so on
of basic courses. So boring! They wanted me to go to a first grade elementary course. Even if

you kill me I wont do it. Of course, besides the International mathematical Olympiad, loves
magic was indeed boundless! But, too many times, I would lean forward as soon as the
teacher started talking. The moment he announced that class was dismissed, I would wake up.
My biological clock was adjusted so much more punctual than the electronic ringtones. I also
did not need to worry that I would hear any corny words between them.

In two weeks, it would be time for finals. I resumed my state of mind like before the college
entrance exam: Maybe I could get full marks, maybe I didnt need to pass an exam or test. But,
to let the former first year probability university student, I prepared to decrease the time I went
online. Furthermore, for the first time, I displayed my library certificates usethese twp weels.
O would go to the library to pass the time. After all, my number one mission was to not get
kicked out. Right now, another layer had been added to the significance of quitting school. It
signified that Xiao Xi and I would not be able to meet again.

When I walked into the library for my self study time, I was suddenly frightened. What situation
was this? The individual study room was packed with people. Everyone had a pile of materials
by their hands, by their materials were usually two adornments of outer space cups. Even if
some people left, it would be hard to defeat using a pile of review materials to occupy the seat
by force, as to prevent being driven away in the middle of the library room. It seemed that
everyone had all began their prolonged war. The tests hadnt even arrived yet when people
planned to never move out of the library room.Unless everyone was all clasping the Buddhas
feet when danger arose**? I couldnt help but feel a little elated. If everyone was all this
confused, then my odds had increased greatly. Hehe. I wont seize the high strategic ground
with these people. Everyone doesnt have it easy, so I wont enter anyones hell.

: Clasping the Buddhas feet when danger arises (idiom; fig. To profess devotion
only when in trouble. Basically means cramming, in this instance.
I turned,k preparing to leave. But when I took my first step, I felt a certain persons exclusive
scent. Xiao Xi was at the 2:00 position above me, but besides him at the 2:00 position, there
was also a girl.

The girls sixth sense was very alert. Even though I didnt really have a weak six sense, based
off of the keeness of my intution and guessing on multiple choice questions, this girls
relationship with Xiao Xi was not ordinary.

Really, I didnt need to use my intuition. I could see it with my naked eye. I saw Xiao Xi knead
her temples for her. At her ear, he whispered something quietly.I finally saw all the hope and
expecation of a semester of Xiao Xis pampering and indulging expression.That was the
sunshine on the snow mountain. It was very tranquil, very pure, very auspicious, very perfect.
What a pity, what a pity, the partner was not me

I continued to turn my body, almost like someone who didnt have anything to do. While I was
en route, I also met a few classmates who laughed and greeted them, while cursing the
perverted exam methods. I happily said goodbye to them, and left the library.

At the public square on December, there was no wind, but the sun shone brightly. I still felt that
the warm air did not have the outdoors bone-chilling/penetrating objects that made me feel
uncomfortable.I lifted my head and looked at the sky. The sun harmlessly hung from the 2:00
position. I was a litle angry and extended a finger to scold it: Dont look innocent. Why do you
want to be at that position? You come down for me. This old lady hates the 2:00 position the
most. After I finished, I even had a confused air. I began to run towards the 2:00 position,
https://tranzgeek.wordpress.com/fleeting-midsummer-beijing-universitys-weakest-
student/?wref=tp
DFGA 59
Fleeting Midsummer (Peking Universitys Weakest Student)
madly. Before, I had always hated running, but this time, I felt that running was really a great
matter. I could feel the wind blowing by my ears, as the damp things in my eyes left, wind-
borne. I only wanted to breathe, big mouthful by mouthful. I didnt need to go care about the
past or now, or who was breathing in whose ear at this moment. I only wanted to care about
my throbbing heart. I didnt need to care about who it was throbbing for, and I didnt need to
care about what it was suffering over.

I ran slower and slower as my physical strength gradually could not endure it any longer and I
collapsed on a desk chair. The school end of terms unnamed lakes had not yet formed into
pairs of sweethearts. The quiet was like it was very late at night. The wintery landscapes were
a little dreary and attacking. Occasionally, there would be some sparrows that flew by my side.
This bird was probably used to people coming and going, as it unexpectedly, recklessly
stopped on my shoulder. I laughed, someone was beside me, pretty great. At least, I wasnt
that lonely. By and by, there was a time when I raised a cat in Yannan. I raised a cat with eyes
like Xiao Xis eyes.Xiao Xis eyes were like Wan Wan**s crescent moon eyes whenever he
squinted. Sometimes, it would be joined with a languid facial feature that followed closely with
a cat. I wiped my face and curled my body up.
Wan Wan- Taiwanese cartoonist. Picture here:
https://zh.wikipedia.org/wiki/%E5%BD%8E%E5%BD%8E

I suddenly wished I could hug someone, and tell me: Dont be afraid Lin Lin. Dont be afraid.
Then I could put my head into the other persons shoulder, and cry and shout, despite the fact
that I had been denounced by Xiao Xi and abandoned. I would even loudly declare that I, Zhou
Lin lin still had not fell in love, when I lost my love!

I felt very mournful. I really wouldnt stir up the time. If it was not the end of the term that I had
lost my love, I could even go up into my dorm and drink some wine with them, drinking until I
became confused. Maybe my heart would no longer be as suffocated or panicky. Right now,
the few people in my dormitory were all reviewing. This girls love story had developed, so I
wouldnt go bother them. I sighed, and even reflected over my intellect in this way. Sure
enough, I was the unequalled King Kong beautiful young lady!

I rose and tidied up, and began to drag my heavy legs south. Just now, I had run like an
experienced sturdy person. My calvs were a little sore, my mouth had been irrigated by the
wind until acid surged up into my whole row of teeth. Really, this was my self-sin. Before, when
I watched TV, and a female lead lost her love, she would be self oppressive. She would either
not eat, not drink water, or change into a successful able woman, who worked energetically for
the prosperity of the country and go. But when I really came across this situation, I just realized
that being self-approsive was not that great. Injuring was not that conservative. My spirit was a
little injured but it would not be because of my body that the pain lessened. Right now, my
heart felt stifleduntil it became paniced. My head hurt a lot. I began to regret what I did a
moment ago. I should have found a corner to cry and that would be enough. Why did I go learn
stick theatrical work? Unless, I even wanted to stare into the eyes of a goldfish and say to Xiao
Xi: Oppa, please return.

But today, so much things had happened today that had a remembering significance. I still
planned to go to Wu Mei to buy some cans of beer. I wanted to finish some good bottles of
beer. I would even take it as my own heart had died at this prospect, and steadily study my
books as I strove hard to forge my own successful career. Even though able women were
greater than just a woman, and less than a male, on the whole this was equivalent to a

transsexual species. But ot was better than having nothing to do and having my soul swimming
around and drifting in the wind.

By the sales counter, when a line formed to pay the bill, Ru Ting and fang Yuke appeared.

The me right now hated lovers before my eyes, arriving and going. To me, this was even more
showing off than saying anything of provocation.

Ru Ting had obviously not seen my hostility and still laughed and waved to me: Lin Lin, this is
so coincidental~~

I hated this way of greeting, which made me think of my silly appearance when I swirled
around Xiao Xi and said So coincidental, if there wasnt that type of coincidence, I would not
have eaten with Xiao Xi every week, and I would not have so many vain attempts, and I would
not feel as if my heart was cut out at this present moment**.

: To feel as if ones heart is being cut out (idiom). Fig. to be torn with grief.
So I bitingly said, Right, God doesnt care. The school is so big, but everyone I bump into just
happens to be the same few people.

Ru Ting was a little awkward. It was probably that the arrogant her had never felt this uncordial
greeting. She innocently blinked with her big eyes at Fang Yuke.

I didnt feel like paying attention to them. Right now, I didnt even want to pay attention to me,
so why would I even care about other people? Things of restoring relationships, could be said
tomorrow. Today, I only wanted to live in the moment**.

To live in the moment (idiom). To live every day as if it were ones last. To live while one
can.
Fang Yuke was sure enough a family with Ru Ting. He grabbed my elbow: You perfectly ate
explosive material all right?

I coldly laughed, and lowered my head as I said to the troops in front of me, lightly cursing: A
nutjob couple.

In fact my voice was not that light, and Fang Yuke distinctly looked stumped for words. I had
always had buried my head in the sand** about affairs, thinking that I was the only person who
could hear when in fact, everyone had already heard.Before, I oviously knew that Xiao Xi didnt
have any male-female thinkings towards me, I obviously knew that he would sometimes pick
up his phone and would have a lover when his expressions, gentle and soft expressions would
appear. I could not pretend that they could not hear me, or see me. Right now I had flipped
over my majong tile, spilling the beans. In fact, this was put in front of me, so bare, but only
now could I force myself to confront it, and give up.

Fang Yukes oppressive voice came through my ear: You apologize. His voice was not like
Xiao Xis voice. Xiao Xis voice had probably gotten damaged when his voice was changing
because his voice had experienced harm. His voice was more like cawing. But, it did not affect
his magnetic charm the least bit; as for Fang Yukes voice, it was more masculine and wide,
suiting the average midnight broadcaster who specialized in being used for soothing emotional
wounds like a suffering husbands extramarital affair and a wound from menopause in women.

When i thought of this, I could not help but laugh.

Fang Yuke flushed with anger, but he still said to me: You apologize.

Isnt it just that your wife is mad? You rascal that pays more attention to a lover than friends**!
But, today, I have already been enough pitiful. I dont care about being more pitiful. I turned my
body and faced them and bowed: Ive let you down!

I didnt have time to see their expressions, when I quickly turned around and saw that the sales
counter was right in front of me. I put down the items in the shopping frames and collapsed on
top, as I began to fish out my wallet from my backpack. My backpack was very heavy and
messy. A pile of snacks that were in a hideous mess and reference books. Where was my
wallet? I saw my tears, right then, dripping, drop by drop into the bag. Today was extremely
discouraged. I went to the library, but I was met with a declaration that the person I liked had a
lover. The person who usually treated me as an idiot and called me by that name forced me to
apologize because I called him a Nutjob. I had been in line for so long, just wanting to buy
some alcoholic products and get drunk, when there was actually no wallet.

I used my hand to wipe my face and laughed as I said to the cashier: Sorry, I didnt bring my
money, can I return these items? I thought that it was definitley unsightly, otherwise why would
the waiter be so alarmed and shake his head.

I mischievously laughed: Thank you.

The whole journey, I ran out madly, running back to my dormitory, to find my wallet, and then
running back to the school gates to get on a taxi. I told the driver to go to Sanlitun Bar Street.

At that time, I didnt know that Haidian, this place, also had a bar. The Beijing in my mind,
besides Houhai, there was only Sanlitun left. I could only hope to find a place with wine, and go
implement my dream of enjoying life while I could.

Chapter 13- A Love That Fizzled Out (2)


Ill drink with you. This way, it wont be wasted.

That was the first time I ever entered a bar. After I entered the bar, I found that a bottle of beer
cost 20 bucks? This was equivalent to the money I needed for a days worth of food. I firmly
gave up on that place called Corona, and went to go find my Tsingdao beer.

Thus, after I walked around Sanlitun trying to find a convenience store, I finally went towards a
certain street side and found a 7-11. Hugging all my money together, 5 cans of Tsinghua didnt
even amount up to 15 dollars. I began to be happy and satisfied.

This place in Sanlitun was great, where their noisy places were really very loud and their quiet
places were like an uninhabited region. I sat on a recliner in the Luhua district and opened my
beer and began to drink it.

I knew very well what my alcohol limit was. Drinking a few bottles of beer wouldnt be a
problem. For mulled rice wine, I could only drink one or two, while for white wine, one sip and I
https://tranzgeek.wordpress.com/fleeting-midsummer-beijing-universitys-weakest-
student/?wref=tp

would fall. From the way I went to buy my beer, I realised that my desire to get drunk was not
that firm. I was very realistic as I thought that if I got drunk, I would have to spend the entire
night on the recliner. Right now, it was winter. Even though the wine could warm me, I still
wouldnt be able to persevere for an entire night night. Plus, I was very skeptical about the
quality of Beijings public security.

I planned to be be a typical middle class for a moment, commemorate what I should


commemorate and then go home.

But as I was drinking around my third can, my head suddenly began to become dizzy. Perhaps
it was because I hadnt drunk like this in a while, so my capacity for liquor began to deviate
from my usual standards. Sure enough, this capacity for liquor was like my exam results,
unpredictable. This time, it was very below par.

As I was hesitating and wondering whether or not I should open the fourth can, I heard a cell
phone ring. I saw that it was the Cold Faced Killers name. WIthout saying anything further, I
declined the call. This night, I wanted to set aside my time for Xiao Xi. From tomorrow
onwards, I planned not to think of him anymore. A manly man makes a decision when its time
to decide**.
Lin Lin means that she considers herself to be someone strong who wont think of this
anymore.

However, Fang Yuke called me unrelentlessly, as if he was asking for my life. I decided I might
as well shut my phone off, but I still had a little bit of an uneasy conscience. Today, I had
cursed their mental states, so I was afraid that I had provoked this rascal and made him
worried. At the worst, I would just have to apologize again. I picked up the phone.

An anxious sound came: Where are you?

I laughed mischievously. The midnight broadcaster had transmitted his voice. It was a pity that
I had not met with an extramarital affair, otherwise I would say everything on my mind. I faintly
said, Fang Yuke, I have already apologized to you. Do not be like this. I have literally bended
down to you. It is sincere and enough in giving you face. You havent finished?

Fang Yuke asked anxiously: Where are you?

I laughed: Are you a recorder? In the evening, you can only say You apologize, at night, you
can only say Where are you

Fang Yuke finally wasnt a recorder: Ill go find you. Where are you?

I shook my head, not caring if he couldnt see it: In fact, I dont know where I am. I am only
thinking of a person for a moment. After a moment, Ill return.

Fang Yuke cautiously and solemnly asked: Today at the supermarket, when it was your turn to
pay the bill, I only saw that you were buying beer. Did anything happen?

I drank a sip of beer: Nothing much happened. Im just a little thirsty, so I bought a little beer to
drink I didnt think that the more I drank, the more bitter it would become. If Id known, I
would have bought Minute Maid Orange Juice instead.

Youre still drinking now? I could hear some concern in Fang Yukes voice.

I suddenly wanted to cry, and I began to hope that someone would hug me and say Dont be
afraid just like this afternoon. Yep, there are still a few cans if I dont drink them theyll go
to waste. After I finish drinking, Ill go home

Fang Yukes warm audio channel said, Ill come and accompany you and drink some. This
way, it wont be wasted. The faster we finish drinking, the sooner we can get back to school.
Tell me where you are right now, what marks or buildings are beside you?

I looked all around me, and told him: Im at the portion of Sanlitun. A symbol or building is 7-
11

When I got to my last can, I thought of calling him, telling him not to come anymore. But his
phone was continuously busy. I could only go to 7-11 to buy more cans to prevent him from
scolding me, Idiot when he came.

When there were beer cans underneath my feet, I saw that Fang Yukes figure had appeared.
He wore a dark grey lassy overcoat. The button had already been opened, exposing a flimsy
shirt underneath. His hair was a little messy. There were even big beads of sweat on his face.
He didnt look like his usual clean self.

I was a little anxious and frightened. I didnt know if he would get angry if he saw me.

He sat down on a recliner next to me. He opened a can of beer himself, and cursed: F**k, Im
so thirsty. I also need to quench my thirst.

I heard this F**k and felt he was exceptionally familiar in this moment. I patted his shoulder:
Why did you come so late? Ive already drank up to my second round.

Fang Yuke took out a napkin from his overcoat, and took off his glasses and began to wipe his
face: There are so many 7-11s, how do I know which one youre at? I called all my friends to
ask about their nearby 7-11s.

I laughed mischievously: You didnt need to be that anxious. Didnt I leave a few cans for you?
But, Fang Yuke, dont wear glasses anymore. When you dont wear glasses, I feel like you look
a lot like Won Bin.

Fang Yuke was thrown off for a moment. He drank a mouthful of beer and said, Ok, Ill listen
to you. I can wear contacts in the future.

I laughed, satisfied: Why are you so cooperative? Do you feel that the matter in the evening
was excessive? Is there anyone like you who pays more attention to a lover than friends? I
know you have to save face in front of your girlfriend, but it isnt necessary to be so
overbearing, right? You scolded me Idiot many times, and Im not someone great who can just
let people step all over me without grudges. Im neither open minded nor generous.

Fang Yuke lowered his head and drank alcohol to drown his sorrows: My temper hasnt been
great recently. It has nothing to do with her.

I laughed: Youre still protecting her?

Fang Yuke ignored me. After thinking for awhile, he said, Recently, havent you been
developing with Xiao Xi very well? The past two days, I saw that you two were still eating lunch
with him at the plantation together so sweetly. When you see me, you always curse me as a
nutjob.

When I heard Xiao Xis name, my head was about to stop spinning. I thought, confusedly:
Xiao Xi has a girlfriend right? You obviously knew, but you never told me.

Fang Yuke scolded me: How was I supposed to tell you if youd never asked? You never learn
the proper things, but you learn the bad ways immediately. Even things like buying alcohol?
This really shows your future prospects!

I was a little angry; I dont have any prospects. Its very well to talk, but getting things done is
another matter. You got into Peking Uni so easily, and the person you like looks only at you,
you have prospects. The unfortunate one is me. I originally came to Peking University because
of a mistake. With great difficulty, I found the person I liked, but he doesnt like me. Everyday I
wondered why he knitted his brows, and why he smiled. Today when I saw Xiao Xis gaze
when he looked at someone else, pampering her and indulging her, my heart got pierced by a
knife. Do you know? My first love hadnt even begun but it already ended like this.. So cant I
drink some alcohol after my love fizzled out and emotions left?

Fang Yuke didnt speak, except that his eyes were slightly blurry.

I began to cry loudly, as if my heart had finally found a place to vent my feelings. I inverted my
wrongs in my old mind: I also understand that feelings cannot be forced. Therefore, I had
cautiously maintained the relationship between me and him. I was afraid that my confession
would scare him. In this way, I didnt even get a chance to speak to him. I saw that he was with
his girlfriend, and I pretended I didnt see anything. I even pretended I was not hurt. I even
despicably thought that Xiao Xi was with another girl for other reasons, and not because of
love. That way, I would still have a chance to slowly approach himdo you understand

Fang Yuke said, I understand everything, I understand the way you look at him, I understand
your excitement, I understand your disappointment. I understand what it feels like when the
person you like doesnt like you back. I also understand what your final struggle was like. But
Zhou Lin Lin, if you feel he is important enough, important enough that he can become the
pursuit of your life, then you must persevere; if you feel you can accept losing him, then from
tomorrow, forget him.

The things in my stomach surged very powerfully. I could hear Fang Yukes every word but my
head was like paste. It was already too difficult to think of every word and link them together to
understand what they meant. Fang Yukes figure had already turned into two or three figures,
only his pair of inky pupils remained clear and distinct. I wanted to lift my hand and comfort his
eyes. Thus, I staggered and swayed and stood up, throwing myself on him. My head landed on
his shoulder. I trembled as I spoke what I had wanted to say from long ago: I need to puke.

Chapter 14- A Love Confession after a Secret Love Affair Completes (1)
The moment I woke up, I sized up my strange surroundings. I wasnt like the girls in romantic
fiction who would first size up her own outfit after a hangover because I knew myself well. My
figure and appearance was really insufficient to unleash the beast within any male. Plus, when
I had half woken up, I had already remembered what had happened yesterday. My head was
not as painful as Id thought it would be, but the long distance running from yesterday made my
legs shiver as they stood up.

This was a very simple room. A wall clock hung on the wall while one corner of the room had a
desk. Just a bookshelf and a single bed, nothing else. I guessed this was Fang Yukes room. I
didnt think that this rascal would have a room even in Beijing.

I opened the room door, and prepared to find some water to drink. The moment I went out the
door, I saw that there was a person lying on the sofa in the living room. Fang Yuke was
wearing the flimsy shirt from last night but it had more wrinkles than it did yesterday. I softly
and quietly found the kitchen and poured a cup of water; bored to death as I sat in the kitchen,
thinking: What if I left like this. Did I need to greet him? Did I not need to? Did I need to?

While I was thinking, I subconsciously turned the TV on. This was one of my biggest bad
habits. At home, besides sleeping, I would turn on the TV. I did not care about the TV content
but it was just to make the place seem more lively.

A fighting sound from an wuxia film suddenly came through, finally waking him up. I didnt need
to be worried. I could just greet him and avoid the problem by walking away from it.

Fang Yuke hadnt gotten ahold of himself and known where he was. He stared blankly at the
TV which flashed on the screen. When he stood up, he turned the TV off and lay back down on
the sofa.

I didnt expect that this pig would not even notice that there was an additional girl sitting with
him. In any standard drama, shouldnt I begin to shout: Ah- loudly? After which, the boy would
begin to panic, while covering my mouth to protest his innocence. Even though his thoughts
would not be innocent, in reality, it was something that was completely inconceivable. The girl
would then doubt him while thinking about whether or not she should force him to swear on the
heavens. Lastly, the boy would be extremely wronged even as he did what he was told without
questioning. Finally, wouldnt both of the parties involved develop a love hate relationship?

I suddenly realized that the guy would have to be from a Korean drama. Korean dramas were
full of romance. At most, Fang Yuke and I would be friends. If we really became like that, it
would be a joke~~ I would have to transform into Ru Ting; maybe then I would scream loudly.
However, if it really was Ru Ting, its hard to say whether or not they would do that completely
inconceivable thing. Maybe they had already done the inconceivable, it was just that my pure
brain merely assumed that they were not like that? The more I thought about it, the more my
thoughts strayed and I began to laugh loudly.

Perhaps the sounds of my laughter woke others up easily. Fang Yuke was suddenly aware of
something and sat upright with a whoosh. He stared at me blankly and asked me Am I
dreaming?

https://tranzgeek.wordpress.com/fleeting-midsummer-beijing-universitys-weakest-

Fleeting Midsummer (Peking Universitys Weakest Student)
I ran over, barefoot, and pinched the back of his hand and said Youre not dreaming. This
servants chastity has been destroyed by you, dont even try to deny it. My dear friend Fang
Yuke finally woke up, smiling while he rubbed the area that I had pinched and said Dont talk
nonsense. Are you drunk? You kept tossing till I only managed to sleep at 3 oclock in the
morning.

I felt slightly apologetic. All the unhappiness that I felt towards Fang Yuke in the past was
thrown into the wind. I was very grateful towards everything that he had done for me yesterday.
If I had not been able to rant, I would not be as relaxed today.

I smiled bashfully I remember that in the past, I would just fall asleep whenever I was drunk. It
is easy to take care of me, eh.

You really do fall asleep well when drunk. While sleeping, you cry out that youre thirsty,
hungry, want some more beer and even fall down from the bed. You even puked all over my
jacket and I had to shamefully bring it to the dry cleaners.

Really? Hehe. I started to feel very embarrassed.

Fang Yuke no longer continued to expose what I did. Yesterday, I slept on the sofa to act as
your doorkeeper and I havent even bathed. What do you want to do? Have you taken a bath?

Actually, I had already smelled how stinky my body was. Fang Yuke was such a neat freak that
being able to tolerate the state that I was in was probably not an easy task. I laughed and said
You can go ahead and bathe. Im going to buy some clean clothes. If I meet the people from
our dorm like this, I wouldnt be able to explain myself.

Fang Yuke nodded his head and passed me the key. Bring your phone with you as you go
out. If you get lost, youll be easy to contact.

I went out and found the supermarket easily. I also bought some meat and vegetables on the
way.
As I entered the door, I noticed that he had already finished bathing. I brought the meat and
vegetables to the kitchen and said to him You should cook some food while I bathe. Im
starving.

Fang Yuke stared at me in disbelief. Please. Is this how you treat your savior? Why should I
have to cook?

I glowered at him: Because you are the host while I am a guest. Does it make sense to let the
guest cook? Not to mention that I dont know how to. Why dont you go downstairs to buy some
cup noodles, Ill cook one for you then.

After speaking, I self righteously closed the toilet door.

After bathing, I came out and smelled a delicious aroma coming from the kitchen. Hehe, I knew
he was someone who knew how to cook. If not, wouldnt his fingers, which were as long as that
of a pianists fingers, go to waste?

Fang Yuke was definitely an amazing guy. He was even able to produce such delicious looking
dishes with such limited resources. I picked up some braised pork with my bare hands and
stuffed it into my mouth. Not bad, not bad. It was oily but it wasnt greasy at all. He could even
replace the chefs at Peking University canteen.

He took out a bottle of Minute Maid Orange Juice from the refrigerator and said Here, from
today onwards, drink orange juice instead of beer.

I took it happily and took a sip. Fang Yuke, apart from your poisonous tongue, you are close to
perfection. Anyone who marries you is definitely lucky. Thinking about it, its better to introduce
Julie to you. I cannot watch helplessly as such a prime specimen is lost.

Fang Yuke took a bite of the food. You finally recognize my abilities. But I still have only one
thing to say- you should not be thinking of such warped things.

As he said this, I began to feel troubled. What should I do about the final exam? I shouldnt
have any troubles with any of my classes, and I should have been able to scrape by with a
pass. However, I slept throughout Computer class. In Russian Art History, I might as well have
been in another classroom. Ugh.

It was as if Fang Yuke could understand what I was thinking. He said There shouldnt be any
problem with the exam for the Computer class. If I help you note down the important points and
give you remedial classes, you should be able to pass.

The stress towards the end of this period did not allow me to settle the emotions from my
heartbreak and forced me to use all my energy to conquer the exams. It was as if an alarm had
sounded off within every student and it became popular for the emergency lights to be turned
on within all the dormitories. The restaurants outside the south gate had long since been
occupied by the students. Actually, with my optimistic, self-comforting nature, looking at
everyone prepare for the exams at the last minute, my eyes filled with tears as I thought that I
had found some comrades. However, when I saw that the top student Ah Ling was holding his
textbook even while he was at the toilet, I finally understood that staying up all night to study
was not a privilege exclusive to the bad students. The last few weeks were merely the long
stretch towards the end of the 100 metre sprint. There was no student who did not run, it was
just that marks were awarded depending on the speed of which you ran.

The first week was the elective course exam, the second week was the computer exam, and
the last two weeks were specialized course exams. Luckily, I planned ahead. In the first school
year, I only chose an elective course. As long as I worked hard at Russion Art History, it
would be okay. The marks for attendance were worth 30 points, I usually scored 30, while the
final exam test would be worth 40 points. I had already estimated that I had already scored for
attendance, which was worth 30 points. Normally, points would be scored by participating in
class discussion. I pretended that I knew what I was doing until I got into the best team so no
matter what, I would still get a minimum of 20 points. This way, as long as I managed to get
just 10 more points, I would pass. In other words, as long as I got of the questions correct, I
would pass. My Russian Art History test went smoothly on Friday. I invited Julie to eat a meal
of Ximen chicken wings with me. Even though I didnt dare say that I would pass my exams
with flying colors, it wouldnt be a problem for me to get a pass. I patted Julies shoulders
happily, explaining like a veteran: You must have a plan for everything you do. The moment I
got into school, the first thing I did was find out the repercussions of failure. Then, when I
selected courses, the first thing I did was to investigate how to score for the class. See, in the
https://tranzgeek.wordpress.com/fleeting-midsummer-beijing-universitys-weakest-
student/?wref=tp
DFGA 68
Fleeting Midsummer (Peking Universitys Weakest Student)
end, I have settled things effortlessly. Julie didnt react the same she last time, and she didnt
retort. Its just that, the words she said made the chicken wing, which was in my mouth fall out.
Its not wrong to plan, but you also have to have an overall plan. I would like to remind you that
the mandatory computer test is happening next Thursday. You can rely on mechanically
memorizing everything for Art history, and things like that, but you spent 5-6 days just
preparing for it before in order to reach a stage where you just passed. What are you going to
do about the liberal arts computer class then? There is a lot of scientific knowledge . Plus, this
class isnt scored in the ordinary way. Your final exam is the single hammer that determines
the heavens and the earth. I spent the entire week looking at computer lecture courses, and I
only looked at my elective course material the day before its exam.

I indignantly said to Julie: Cant you just wait until I finish today before saying this? Since
youve said this, I have to stay up all night!

Julie snickered: Who asked you to preach in such a high and lofty manner? I am reminding
you not to be happy too early. Right, the school will be closed after next next weeks
specialized course tests are finished, so you can look as much as you want. But next week, if
youre still hugging that emergency light to spend the night, you will probably go blind. Why
dont you come over to my house to study?

I shook my head: Forget about it. Even though I dont study well, I still have many peculiarities
when I study. I am not accustomed to strangers pampering me at the side, and I cant let your
parents clear the area on my behalf right? But thanks, Julie.

Julie laughed: You are really hard to serve. You dont need to thank me. You have no way to
reciprocate anyways. But do you think you can understand it by yourself? Even I am having a
bit of trouble.

When I heard no way to reciprocate my mind began to spin again: Dont you have something
towards Fang Yuke? Why dont I create an exceptionally good opportunity for you. Not only will
you have a very able person to answer questions, you can even fish a wealthy hot guy with
your hook and bait?

Julie shot a glance at me: Why wouldnt you give such a good opportunity to yourself?

I saw Julies disbelieving appearance, and got anxious. I fished out my cell phone and called
Fang Yuke. Fang Yuke seemed to be in a bustling place, as there were numerous laughs that
came from that speaker.

After Fang Yuke picked up the phone, he didnt say anything for a long time. He probably found
a quiet place before saying in a low voice: Whats up?

The power that I had saved up from a moment ago was actually enough to arrogantly order
Fang Yuke around, but Fang Yuke cut off my momentum when he picked up the phone. I
suddenly forgot why I had called him. In my evasive responses, quite a while passed before I
said, Nothing and then hung up. I didnt even know why my heart was flustered.

Julie cupped one fist in the other hand at the side, enjoying the scene: What? You picked up
the phone just to hear the other persons breathing? How romantic, eh

https://tranzgeek.wordpress.com/fleeting-midsummer-beijing-universitys-weakest-

Fleeting Midsummer (Peking Universitys Weakest Student)
Julie hadnt finished when Fang Yuke called me back. This time, I began to draw from my
experience and lessons, and I breathed deeply: Fang Yuke, I have been kidnapped. You have
to get to Ximen Chicken Wings within five minutes, otherwise the other person is going to kill
me for ransom, and I will never let it go.

I hung up on the phone satisfactorily. Julie crossed her legs. All I needed was to give her some
melon seeds, and then I believe that my neighbor, Xiao SHans mom and my mom would
congregate together and gossip. She winked at me and said, Are the both of you teaching the
art of flirtation. After hearing such childish words, my teeth almost dropped. Plus, youve been
taken hostage, but how can you say that you will never let him go? You should have said that
even if I become a ghost I wont let you off. I really saved Xiao Xi bro from this burden. When
the skeleton of the dead has not yet trembled, he or she will immediately tie a new knot with a
new lover.

When I heard Xiao Xis name, my heart thumped for a moment. The past few days, I had
always wanted to pass my tests and I had never thought of him.Even if my mind was
wandering, and I thought of it, I would tell myself that I could not indulge in flights of fancy.
Right now, his name was like a thin needle, which entered my heart.

Julie had probably seen my painful expression and realised she had said the wrong thing. She
immediately said, Ah, dont feel sad anymore. Isnt he just one guy? If you really cant let him
go, you can become the third party. He hasnt married yet, so you still have a chance.

I pretended like I didnt care and said casually: Yup, I will start planning again in winter break.

Julie laughed at me: How can you still plan? These types of things cant keep up with the
changes.

I laughed and retorted: I just love to plan. Later, I will even plan a scene of a blind date, and
become a matchmaker for once!

After I finished, I saw Fang Yuke running towards us. I made a face at Julie as Julie, that fiend
had already understood at last.

Fang Yuke pulled a chair over and sat down: What are you doing? Even limiting the time I
take to show up here?

I didnt pay heed to his words and pushed Julie towards my chest: Lemme introduce you two.
This is my dorm mate, Julie. Julie, this is the computer genius, Fang Yuke. Last time when you
were installing the computer software, you met. In short, everything pertaining to computer
courses, you can ask him.

Just now, that gossipy person who had flip flops on as she crossed her legs had completely
changed into a new person. She smiled demurely: Hello, I hope youll be able to treat me
kindly.

Fang Yuke nodded his head. It counted as the exchanging of greetings, and used a peculiar
expression to glance at me. I glanced at him, and hinted at him to recall the sister I had brought
up many times in the past.

I called for a few more chicken wings, and conveniently poured a few bottles of beer. Fang
Yuke also changed into an adorning and virtuous male: Dont drink beer anymore, you should
drink orange juice. I couldnt stand it anymore. If a woman said this, I would just think that she
was being a lady. As a big grown man saying this, he not afraid of losing face. If you think
about it, wouldnt a hot guy drinking fruit juice while eating chicken seem very effeminate?

I was very demanding as I said, Drink beer.

Julie, this filial child, immediately said, Fang Yuke, you can drink beer. Lin Lin and I can drink
juice.

This time, Fang Yuke didnt say anything, so I took it that he had accepted tacitly.

Since Fang Yukes poisonous tongue had not yet exposed itself, I wanted to explain the
significance of the gathering this time to prevent this rascal from sneering and speaking
sarcastically while bombarding me after this event. I laughed as I asked Fang Yuke: Do you
need to study for the the exams?

Need.

Fxxk, even you need to study? Dont tell me you also study in the washroom while almost
losing consciousness in the yellow light? Then where do you usually study? How long do you
usually study? I continued to interview him.

The dormitory or outside of school. It depends on my feelings and how much time I need to
study.

Then may I ask whether your excellencys mood is currently more happy or sad?

Within my happiness is sadness, and within my sadness there is happiness.

Then may I ask what is your ratio of happiness to sadness?

What are you asking about this for?

I had finally gotten to my first official question. I laughed and said, When you are happy, you
can do a little favor and help out Julie . Julie said that she cant really understand the content in
the computer class, but she doesnt have time to ask. Julie has some guests staying hat her
house, so there is simply no way to study. Didnt you rent a house off campus? Right now, for
late night studying, there is no place to go and simmer. Why dont you offer it. If Julie tests well,
and gets this years scholarship I will definitely be the first one to treat you to a meal.

I secretly looked at Julie. This lady was currently looking at me with such respect. I had never
thought that I would have the potential of drafting up making up lies. I probably have the
makings of a match-maker.

Fang Yuke didnt even think about it, and immediately answered: All right, no problem.

https://tranzgeek.wordpress.com/fleeting-midsummer-beijing-universitys-weakest-

Fleeting Midsummer (Peking Universitys Weakest Student)
I maintained an O shape with my mouth in wonder for a long time before closing my mouth. I
had even prepared myself with bucketloads of persuasive words. I didnt think that he would
answer so quickly. I was secretly disappointed that I was unable to ride on my earlier
momentum and that it was now useless.

But I have a condition. Fang Yuke slowly said.

I just knew that this rascal wouldnt be that easy to convince. I excitedly prepared a retort.
Without waiting for me to open my mouth, Fang Yuke said, The condition is you.

This time, my mouth became an O shape again. I looked at Julie again. Julie resentfully looked
back at me, almost as if I had done something that let her down.

I paused and thought about it for a moment. Then, I made a heavy decision: Fang Yuke, I
know that when some people are playing matchmaker, other people will often include oneself.
Just like how those celebrities that enter the entertainment circle frequently accompany others
to be interviewed, while being the one to get hired instead in the end. But you also understand,
I have a heavy spirit of loyalty and self sacrifice. You should not covet your friends wife
(idiom), mens rules within women is applicable as well. Since my friend is interested in you, it
is impossible for me to have even a fraction of a thought towards you. You also have Ru Ting ,
but even if Ru Ting is gone, you still have countless young ladies waiting to be trampled by
you.. I secretly glanced at Julies face again. Julies face had already become full of black
lines.

Fang Yuke didnt talk for a long time. It seemed, that after a good while, he definitely was not at
a rush to speak: What I mean is that while I am helping Julie with school, I hope you can also
be present. Julie is a girl all alone at my house , coming in and out. If it spreads, people wont
think highly of her; in addition, I feel that since Im helping out, I might as well help both of you
at the same time. I also dont wish to see you fail your computer, otherwise I will have let down
your mother who asked me to take care of you and entrusted you with me. As for the countless
young girls that you say are waiting for me to trample on them, while I am grateful to you
thinking so highly of me, but I have still fallen in love with my angel. Im afraid that I will have to
disappoint both you and those young ladies.

My face heated until it could boil an egg. Julie even passionately and quietly asked: Whos the
angel hes talking about? Ru Ting?

I secretly fiercely bit out two words xx

Chapter 15- A Love Confession after a Secret Love Affair Completes (2)
It was in this way that Julie and I established our presence in Fang Yukes off campus
residence. Because my foundation was very weak, according to Fang Yukes words, I didnt
even have any foundation at all, I had no choice but to stay up all night to read my heavenly
books. When Fang Yuke just began, he even scolded me with a few sentences of Idiot. Later,
he felt that the simple repetition of scolding me with Idiot did not change my idiotic conduct at
all. A majority of the time, as he would answer me with increasing depression, he would look

student/?wref=tp

Fleeting Midsummer (Peking Universitys Weakest Student)
up towards heaven and adjust his mood before he proceeded to find additional fault in my
methods and straighten me out.

Julie, this girl, even while studying could still find time to scheme. How could she pretend not to
understand the things that she actually did? After that, she would pretend to ask Fang Yuke
while hanging her chin down every once in awhile and biting the head of her pen as she threw
herself at him with big eyes, making a cute face. As for me, I had pretended that I understood
parts that I didnt understand to avoid inconveniencing Fang Yuke. But even if I scratched my
hair into a birds nest, I still had big pieces that I was unable to make sense of.

Fang Yuke was obviously the kind to pay more attention to a lover than friends. When Julie
asked him, he would use kind words and give her the first step to the last step. When he got to
me, he would speak maliciously and arrange a few pivotal procedures to let me ponder over.
His reason was very simple: Your brain will get rusty if it doesnt think. Thus, doing less of
reaping where one has not sown is still the best. I pathetically whimpered for half a day, but
when I finished answering the question, He said to me again: Your head is still like a ditch.
After doing more, wont it be forced out?

In this way, I passed a few days, bored. Julie finally couldnt endure it, and went home to bathe
and sleep as she prepared for her second days examination papers to come again. As for me,
I rushed up to Fang Yukes bed to sleep. These two days, the time I had for sleeping had been
greatly cut by half as compared to my former sleeping times. Every time I was unbearably
sleepy, I would rush up to Fang Yukes bedroom and sleep without waking. After waking up, I
wouldnt wash my face nor brush my teeth and immediately started studying. Fang Yuke had
gotten a little mental illness because of me, and he didnt dare continue sleeping on the bed,
afraid that I would lie down on his body without even knowing. Whenever he got sleepy, he
would huddle up on the sofa in the living room to sleep.

The me who was sleeping did not know that a catastrophe was approaching.

I was awoken by an ear-piercing screech. I hazily opened my eyes, and saw Ru Ting covering
her mouth with her hand, motionless as she stared at me. I stubbornly closed my eyes, hoping
this was a nightmare. But I heard a familiar masculine sound: Ru Ting, there are definitely
some misunderstandings in here

This time, it was almost my turn to scream. I suddenly got up, thats right, it was Xiao Xi who
stood at the side, staring blankly.

I was in a frenetic state, but I still wiped the saliva at the corners of my mouth out of habit. Now,
I must be calm. Originally, the affair didnt matter, why on earth would you panic?

I laughed towards Ru Ting: Ru Ting I am here to be a student. Your guy is really great. No
computer problems are too hard for him

Ru Ting didnt speak and looked at me with red eyes. She even looked at the bed under my
butt.

I could only continue: You also know, I am always sleeping during computer class. Now Ive
crammed too hard in one go, but this class is too boring. I havent looked at a lot of content
before I get sleepy, thus I borrowed the bed to use. You dont need to misunderstand. Even if I

want anything to happen, your Fang Yuke wont allow it. His eyes only have you. Hehe
Right now, I didnt even want any face. In front of Xiao Xi, damaging myself wasnt that big of a
problem anyways. It was only that in my heart I began to hate myself. I had objections towards
Ru Ting while I secretly helped Julie occupy the top seat. But every time, the moment I saw Ru
Ting, I would involuntarily become like a slave, almost as if I had done something that let her
down. In the end, I was still not a person, inside and out.

I got up to go to the bathroom to wash my face. My head had many numbers that wouldnt stop
jumping out at me from the binary system and the decimal conversions, infiltrating the
melodramatic plot that had just occurred. I had a headache because of Ru Tings screech, Xiao
Xis face and me being at a complete loss. God probably regretted giving me the meat pie that
he had smashed onto my body a while ago as he turned around to take back everything he
had given me.

I returned to the living room and saw that Ru Ting was still foolishly staring at that single bed. I
didnt know what was so worthy about this bed that made her stare at it with such rapt attention
for so long. I even began to imagine that maybe it was something that possessed Fang Yuke
and Ru Tings unique secret, but this pure and holy bed had been damaged by my lying down,
as all of its beauty was damaged. Fang Yuke had mysophobia, while Ru Tings heart was full
of mysophobia.

Thus, I began to ramble on and explain. In the end, I helplessly and despairingly said, If there
is a need, after I finish testing, Ill go buy another single bed for you guys. But before testing, I
indeed do not have time.

Only then did Ru Ting react: Theres no need. After a while I will go IKEA. I feel like its dirty.

I became indignant, feeling as if I had been resolutely slapped on the face with the palm of her
hand, but I still controlled myself as I said, Ru Ting, you dont need to be so unkind. I pledge
that if anything happens, the sky will rumble with thunder and split me in two, and I will not die
peacefully. I am only tired from studying, and I lay on the bed for a while. I cried for help, while
watching Xiao Xi. Xiao Xi looked at me. He patted Ru Tings shoulder and said, Ru Ting,
youre thinking too much. Lin Lin isnt someone like that. Didnt you go too far?

After hearing this, my tears began to fall, almost as if even it didnt matter that I had received
an unjust treatment.After all, how Xiao Xi saw the case was more important was more
important to me.

Ru Ting squatted down, hiding her head in her bosom, muttering softly as she weeped: He
has never let me sleep on his bed. He said he had mysophobia and I believed him. I waited for
so many years but I cant compare with another person whom hes only known for a month.
When I first saw them, I just knew that there were some things that I had no power to stop..

I fainted. Damn it! After all, she had vented for so long because of Fang Yukes mysophoia. I
thought she had misunderstood some physical body relationships that occurred between us
but I didnt think that she would suddenly go all philosophical, going so far that she was stuck in
her own delusions .

I wiped at my tears, pulling at Ru Ting with one hand, pointing at Xiao Xi with the other: Ru
Ting, dont make everything into a hideous mess. I am not sure if Fang Yuke likes you, but this
is a matter between you guys. But what I can ascertain is: I like him.

After I said these words, aside from me, every who was on scene froze up, including the
person holding orange juice and snacks at the door, Fang Yuke.

When they all began to awake, I had frozen. I had only then become aware that no matter how
I tried to wrap my head about it, I had still sold myself out.

The scene became impossibly awkward. We sat down at the living room table. The living room
table was covered with exam papers marked with red xs that were too miserable to look it..

I cleared my throat and said to Ru Ting: See, I came to study right? The blue marks on these
books were all written by me. The red colors of replying officially to a subordinate are all from
your Fang Yuke. My words are a bit ugly, so dont ridicule me.

Fang Yukes face sank and became very unsightly. I understood this rascals feelings. In any
case, he was a man and could not stand this girl who was overly suspicious. I also realised that
Ru Ting possessive nature was a bit too strong. It was as if a simple broken bed determined
her life and death. I sympathetically looked at Fang Yuke and then looked at Xiao Xi, whom
was hanging his head down.

Xiao Xi was the true victim of this entire event. He unexpectedly had to watch this slapstick
scene and even more unexpectedly got confessed to by someone. I also guessed that Xiao Xi
indeed had some thoughts, but he was a peacemaker at heart. His fake acting was indeed a
gift from heaven that could indeed make people confess any truth to him.

Fang Yuke coldly asked Ru Ting: when did you duplicate the key?

Ru Ting stiffed her neck and didnt say a thing, her eyes were quickly filling up with tears.

The atmosphere became icy.

I thought that since things had gotten this awkward, I had better say something to lighten up
the atmosphere. So I looked at Xiao Xi and said affectionately: Xiao Xi, the things I said just
now were real. It was not just to fool Ru Ting. I really do like you.
Xiao Xi looked at me, looked at Fang Yuke and looked at me again, then even more
unbelievably looked at Fang Yuke.
I could only more forcefully say: Ive liked you for a very long time. Ive fallen in love with you.
Its a pity that in this drama, the conclusion is probably that our feelings are not mutual.

Upon saying this, Ru Ting looked at me and then looked at Xiao Xi.

Xiao Xi looked slightly melancholic: is this really necessary? I treat you only as a sister.
This time, Ru Ting cut in: I think Lin Lin has a point. If you love someone, you have to chase
them. So what if youve already got a girlfriend? Anyway, hasnt your girlfriend already been
asking for a break up?

I really respected how Ru Ting was so strong headed, expecting even the grass to move for
her, and I was especially moved by her last sentence. I excitedly grabbed on Ru Tings arm:
she wants to break up? Why? I completely ignored the Xiao Xis hurt expression. In my point
of view, this was like a floating piece of wood that would save my life. I had to grab onto it
tightly.

Ru Ting timidly said, actually, I dont know whether or not sister Yi Lian can even be counted
as Xiao Xis girlfriend. Everyone knows she only has eyes for the vice president. It was only
because of some incident that caused her to go looking for Xiao Xi.

So this shameless behaviour that enjoyed Xiao Xis help could be traced back to this woman
called Yi Lian!
Xiao Xi smiled bitterly: Ru Ting, you rascal, how could you say such hurtful words? You
wouldnt die by speaking one less sentence. I understand how much pretending to be with
someone that you dont love will hurt the other person. In the end, arent I the one whos
hurting? Lin Lin, I do not wish for you to face this kind of hurt while you are with me. You
should give up.

I was a little bit angry. You had an open opportunity to try being together with Yi Lian, but are
too stingy to even grant this kind of opportunity to me? I shouted: No way. If you need to have
a shadow then I will be the sun. One day, when the shadow is gone, we will be mutually in
love.

Fang Yuke, who hadnt spoken a word, walked into the kitchen and brought out a few cans of
beer. He smiled and said, Okay, thats enough, do people normally act like you do?
Confessing, rejecting, and declaring your stalker-like intentions even while were around? Do
you think were air? Lets drink some beer, after youre done you should go home. And, Lin Lin,
pack up your books then go home and take a look at them. It should be no problem for you to
pass now. Even if you ponder about them by yourself, you should be able to score well. If you
really cant, then just ask Xiao Xi directly.

Fang Yukes face was a bit pale. His smile was also slightly bitter. I do not know whether or not
the reason for his bitter smile was because he had to give up his tutoring rights. Did this cause
sadness in his happiness or happiness in his sadness?

Chapter 16- Returning Home (1)


Xiao Xi and I were walking on the path back to the dorm. This was the situation that I had
envisioned countless number of times. A warm sun glow blooming ahead, clouds shading the
shining sun and the man that I loved walking beside me. If he would only hold my hand, then I
would be the most blessed person in the world. However, what was funny was that we were
walking in front of each other and we didnt say a word. However, at the entrance of the dorm, I
hesitantly stuttered and struggled to say to Xiao Xi: Xiao Xi, lets work hard together! After I
finished, I made a victory gesture with my hands. Xiao Xi shook his head helplessly: you
should study hard. Lets talk about other things when exams are over.

When I returned to the dorm, I called Julie to cancel future tutoring sessions, while telling her
about the situation that today from start to end. On her end, Julie hatefully ground her teeth
and shouted: How could you miss such a prime opportunity? The shows on TV are not as
exciting as this! You sure deserve to be on TV!

I sighed. Right now, I could only do as Xiao Xi said and study hard. I would handle this after
exams.

After completing my Liberal Arts Computer final, I estimated my grade and felt that chances for
failure were low. I sent a text message to Fang Yuke, thanking him for all his help the past few
days. In my heart, I thought that if this rascal seized the opportunity to blackmail me and force
me to treat him to a meal, I was willing to sacrifice and pay up to $50 for each of us at a
restaurant. I didnt expect that Fang Yuke would subtly express his disdain. His reply was short
and only had three words: Dont mention it.

On the day that exams ended, snowflakes began to float in the air all of a sudden. As far as I
could remember, after junior high, it seldom snowed in our hometown. Even if it did snow, it
would disappear into the moist ground, unable to form due to the climate and thus finish. I did
not expect that it would snow so heavily in Beijing. Big blankets of snow piled up on the road,
producing cracking sounds when you stepped on them. After exams, I was completely relaxed
and had a burning desire to destroy the pure white snow. There was snow everywhere so I ran
up to step on it, as I fulfilled this ladys desire.

Just as I was having fun stepping on the snow, I received a phone call from Fang Yuke. His
voice was very nasal, I suspected that he had caught a cold.

When are you going home? Have you bought a ticket? Suddenly, I felt very blessed as I
thought that I could go home with Xiao Xi, and suddenly felt excited and asked happily: I
havent thought about it. Are you going back home with Xiao Xi? Hehe, the three of us can go
back together.

A nasal voice came from the other end: If Xiao Xi and I are not going back together, who will
you follow? Obviously I would go back home with Xiao Xi, but I was worried about how Xiao Xi
was currently filled with fear and trepidation and I was afraid that we would spend the entire
journey home in silence. If this happened, both of us would feel embarrassed. Forget it, an
impatient person could not eat hot tofu**, I should take it slower.

I smiled evilly: I hope that the three of us can go back together. It will be more lively this way.
Its not like we have anything else to do after exams, why do I have to choose who to go back
with?

**Hasty men dont get to eat hot tofu (idiom)- One just has to be patient, haste will ruin everything.
It seemed that on the other end, Fang Yuke was satisfied with my answer: Alright then, the
three of us can go back together.

Remember to book a ticket for the hard seats, we can get a 50% discount using our student
passes. Dont waste money and buy those bedded seats. I still want to save money.

Fang Yuke said unhappily: Can I pay for you or not? Its tiring to sit for more than ten hours on
the train.

Ughh, how can you seem so much like an old person? It only takes ten-ish hours. Time will fly
by as the three of us play cards. Listen to me, or else, even if you buy those bedded seats, Ill
get a refund! Fang Yuke compromised and agreed.

Before I hung up the phone, I comforted him: Have you caught a cold? You should eat more
medication,

Fang Yuke said in a huff: How can you still be this bad at saying things? You seriously want
me to eat more medication? You should be advising me to drink more water

On the day that we were to go home, after considering for a long time, I decided to wear a thin,
light colored winter skirt. In the past, before I dressed up, I would definitely wrap myself up like
an Arab woman before leaving the house. However, I decided to abandon the image of looking
like a bloated penguin. My heart cried out I am a beautiful King Kong maiden! I am going into
battle! After this, I resolutely stepped out of the house.

The period when I waited for the taxi was the hardest to pull through. In fact, it proved I was not
an unequalled King Kong maiden. When the small wind blew, I trembled incessantly, freezing
until my teeth chattered together. I wished I could jump up and down on this street to get a little
warmer. Fang Yuke was very gentleman-like, as he asked me, if I really didnt have any
money to buy winter clothing. I lightly cursed: You self-centered show-off! almost as if he was
giving his respects to his seniors, as he expressed concern, while not attending to Xiao Xi at
his other side. He directly said, Buying a down-filled garment in Beijing is too expensive. Lets
just buy one in the South and forget about it.

The taxi finally unhurriedly stopped in front of us. I used my eyes to indicate to Fang Yuke to sit
at the front. However, even when I blinked until my eyes had cramped, Fang Yuke pretended
that he didnt notice. He even more eagerly forced his way to sit at the back. I glared at him,
ruthlessly kicking him off the taxi. As I opened the front door of the taxi, the taxi driver said
unhappily: Princess, please walk a bit more carefully, dont spoil my car.

Damn! This was not over!

I had no idea why, but ever since I had nonsensically confessed, it felt as if Xiao Xis attitude
towards me had taken a 180 degree turn. He used to be extremely warm towards me, and we
were at least fellow friends. However, now whenever he looked at me, he would lower his head
and look at the ground with so much intensity like there were a few hundred dollars there and
he was afraid someone would steal it. Was he shy or intentionally distancing himself? If he was
shy, that meant that I had a big chance and could chase him without holding back. In less than
three days, after I had let his shyness fade and thickened his skin until it was like a concrete
wall, he would calmly accept my sincerity. However, if he wanted to distance himself, I would
have even more reason to chase him without holding back. I would have to let his skin become
as thin as a Beijing Pancake, which would tear after just one poke. He would immediately
surrender and submit himself willingly and bow down before me.

Of course my brain had not yet comprehended how to actually answer such a difficult question
of the heart, whichever of the two it was. No matter what the answer was, I still would have to
act in the same way in order to achieve the same result. So there was no point in worrying
about it anymore.

When we first got on the train, I picked up a call from Ru Ting. I wondered whether or not this
girl had actually dialed the wrong number. On that side, Ru Ting interrogated me on my plans
for the next school semester.

I unhappily asked: Ru Ting, we already quarrelled so badly the last time, Im really impressed
at how you are still filled with so much greetings. Anyway, the new school semester has pretty
much already been set by the school? And were not even that close, why dont you just say
what you want.

Ru Ting forced a smile: I just want to wish you a smooth sailing with brother Xiao Xi and to
ask you to take care of Fang Yuke for me along the way.

What do you mean along the way? Looking after your familys Fang Yuke carefully is
definitely my priority and Ill develop my relationship with Xiao Xi along the way. I said this
while laughing loudly. I thought in my heart that Ru Ting was considered a friend of Xiao Xi and
I had to give Xiao Xi some face. I wouldnt hold any grudges towards this woman anymore.
Anyway, in view of the fact that she inexplicably cared about Xiao Xi and me to a degree, I
decided to mend our relationship so we could go back to normal. This was also taking into
account the fact that she knew about the situation between Xiao Xi and Xiao Xis ex-girlfriend. I
decided to go against my conscience and preferences, to become like sworn sisters with her.

Ru Ting was a smart person. After hearing my guarantee, she immediately said : The quota
for number of exchange students has already been set. Sister Yi Lian and the vice president
will be going to America next semester, there will be there for around a year more or less. You
dont have to worry about brother Xiao Xi.

On the train, I changed my usual on-train gluttonous image. I restrained myself and kept
drinking plain water. Even if the sellers on the train pushed their little carts over, calling out
beside me a countless number of times: pickled chicken legs, spicy chicken wings- I just
persistently held on to the cup of water in my hands. My dear friend Fang Yuke suddenly threw
off his usual bored-pen-spinning demeanor and bought a few bags of chicken legs and chicken
wings, contentedly and shamelessly chewing on them with Xiao Xi.

I couldnt take it anymore, aggressively slapping the table and standing up forcefully. Xiao Xi
looked at my hesitantly: Whats wrong? With strength that could push down a wall and topple
a country, I pointed at my cup and swallowed a gulp of water: Im going to pour some water.
Fang Yu ku looked at me provocatively, without saying a word.

I asked the attendant for a cup and poured it full of hot water, carefully carrying the cup as I
walked to back to the seats. I originally intended to exaggerate and look very impressed while
saying to Xiao Xi: After eating so much, you should drink some water~~ in order to live up to
my definition of chasing him. However, in reality, when I carried the water to the table, my
courage was completely gone. I stiffly said to Xiao Xi: Drink!

I didnt expect that Xiao Xi would not stare at the ground and scrutinise the carpet patterns like
he used to. Instead, he smiled at me, nodded his head and said softly: Thank you.

This was the kind of warmth one experienced when snuggling under a blanket. There was a
soft kind of emotion growing in my heart, which made me feel as if I was in heaven. After
confessing, I treated the love between Xiao Xi I like a battlefield. Every time, I would put on a
mask, wear my armor, get up after falling, ignore any spilt blood and overestimate the strength
of my heart. Xiao Xis smile was like the sun, illuminating every crack, causing my chest to
tighten in my excitement. In the past, I had boastfully and carelessly said that I was the sun to
chase away his shadow. Actually, it would always be that the one who was loved would be the
other partys sun. Just like how Yi Lian was his sun and Xiao Xi was mine.

As I thought of this, some depression was produced at the same time. As for me, who I was I
shining my sunlight for?

Chapter 17- Returning Home (2)


Just as I was immersed in a slightly sorrowful and complicated mood, Fang Yuke said in a
timely manner: Lets play cards .

My recovery speed was akin to a dog, and I immediately recovered with vitality and agreed.

When it reached 6 to 7 oclock, I was so sleepy that I could not open my eyes. The me who
yawned towards the sky, repeatedly played wrong cards. I was not some gentleman who
played the cards without looking back. Every time we finished playing a round, I would demand
for a rematch.

Fang Yuke stuck out his lip and said unhappily: Its only 7pm and you already feel sleepy. Are
you sure you remembered your zodiac correctly, youre obviously a pig.

I refuted: Confucius said, if you dont sleep in the early afternoon, you will collapse in the late
afternoon. Mencius also agreed with Confucius. The saints have already agreed on the
importance of naps. Today, I was rushing for the train in the afternoon. Staying up until now
has already been difficult for me.

Xiao Xi brightened up: your saint is really too in touch with the spiritual world.

Fang Yuke laughed and asked: What other words of wisdom did your familys saint give you?

I laughed: My saint also said that no matter how ugly you are, you should talk about love. Talk
about it until the whole world is filled with love.

I was extremely happy. Since confessing at Oolong, I could finally show off my real self in front
of Xiao Xi. Even though I dont know when I began to give up that hypocritical pretentiousness,
but I hoped that even if he did like me, it would be the real me. Not the me who was putting on
a mask.

However, if Julie knew, she would definitely beat me up because she treated these kinds of
situations as a strategy and I was going to abandon this strategy to become a boorish person,
heading into battle like this.

When we got off the train, I saw that my mother kept looking at her watch. The train had a little
problem. While sighing that it would be wishful thinking to expect the train to speed up, I waved
my hand to get my mothers attention.

My mother walked leisurely towards me, (I had really never seen my mother walk in such a
demure way before) and elegantly smiled at me, then turning her head towards Fang Yuke as
she said, Yuke, Ive troubled you to take care of my familys Lin Lin.

Damn! Im your daughter. Shouldnt you say hello to me first? No matter what, its been half a
year since weve met, but your arm has certainly reached very far to hook somebody else in.

Fang Yuke smiled warmly: Its still okay, auntie. Lin Lin is well behaved most of the time, she
doesnt really stir up any trouble. If theres any trouble, other people will tidy it up for her.

I exaggeratedly fainted. Fang Yuke, you are definitely cruel alright! I pulled my mothers arm
and pointed towards Xiao Xi to introduce him: This is Xie Duan Xi. The target of your
daughters interest.

I dont think my mother understood what I meant by interest, but looking at how handsome he
was, she elegantly nodded her head: Nice to meet you. However, she put him in the friend
zone and added: but my interest is Fang Yuke.

Xiao Xis face was a bit red and he didnt know how to continue the conversation.

On the road, my mother started interrogating people.

There were no problems with your exams right?

The results have not yet been released. I have some modules that I could excel in. I said
frankly. I wasnt someone who reported good news without the bad. In reality, there were some
classes where I had put in more effort and succeeded quite extraordinarily. My experience with
school this half a year taught me that Peking University was hard to enter but easy to leave. If
you only put in effort to study consistently and worked super hard at the end, it was not that
easy to pass the exams.

As usual, my mother nodded her head unconfidentally. After that, as if she didnt really care,
she turned her head and said to the taxi driver: The one sitting at the back is my girl. She
entered Peking University last year.

I couldnt do anything about my mother. Even if her daughter had some glory, you couldnt
show off like this. Putting the taxi driver in such a difficult situation, wasnt she forcing him to
boast about himself as well?

The taxi driver really did especially play along with her, and said, I really envy you, ah. My son
is taking the college entrance examination this year. If he is able to be an undergraduate, I will
really kowtow and give thanks to the heavens.

My mother arrogantly and satisfactorily smiled, as if she were a queen that had been waited
upon and carried by a bunch of eunuch manservants.

When we reached home, my mother solemnly said, Yep, though that Xie Duan Xi is quite
handsome, I still recommend Fang Yuke for your boyfriend. However, I never thought you
would be so popular.

I couldnt take it anymore : Do you think your daughter is Maggie Cheung or something? Not a
single one of them likes me, its my unrequited love, alright?
My mother said without hesitation: If its unrequited love, its better to start from Fang Yuke.
From the way I see it, you and Fang Yuke really have the aura of a couple.

I decided not to care about her. I suddenly thought of Fang Yuke and the me who would be
called an idiot whenever Fang couldnt stand it anymore. Wasnt he the split image of my
mother?

I was just like a pig throughout the entire winter vacation. Besides eating and sleeping, at most,
I would participate in a few different gatherings for the sake of bonding. During these meetings,
I would be like a pig on the chopping board. Because I had tested into Peking University,
everyone felt the need to punish me. I would happily get slaughtered by my friends and sworn
followers. My friends were those who would copy their work together, those who cheated
during exams, and hanging out with them was particularly relaxing. And the so called gathering
of elite students that was organized by the great people in the highest grade who were 29, was
actually just a gathering of the students who did well in the examinations. Although Principle
Fang had specially called me on the phone, hoping that during this period, I would think of
reuniting with some 20 over people from my liberal arts class, I still thought of other methods to
find an excuse not to participate. In my mind, this was just a meeting with people who used to
say that I was in the background who would now say I was taking basking in the glory of
others. Everything they said was just covertly criticizing how I got into Peking University, it was
too much like a drama about the struggle of the giants on TVB. Also, all the words said during
the toasts were toasting to his damn school, toasting to his lessons, toasting to his future. It
was totally not like a normal school gathering at all.

This gathering of demons buddies still had some benefits to be reaped because I had bumped
into my childhood neighbor Shan Shan.

Shan Shan was a super skinny guy from Lu Chai who used to be bullied by me when we were
younger. He would always suffer hardships while I enjoyed the fortune and blessings. Later on,
in elementary school, Shan Shans father was building properties when he suddenly struck it
rich and they moved to a wealth suburb in the city centre. Our mothers would regularly meet up
and gossip while playing mahjong. But Shan Shan started to develop characteristics of a rich
kid. Without finishing Junior High school, he moved to Australia to study. That also happened
to be my rebellious period, so everyday I would think about running away from home. So I
really admired and envied Shan Shan. I always talked about how hardships had finally come
my way and blessings had gone to him.
However, could it be that the Shan Shan before my eyes had to request for two plane tickets?
He had made me worry about him when he flew back on the plane, but I could not recognize
him upon first glance and even wondered who this damn fatty was. I didnt expect that once
Shan Shan saw me, he struggled to his feet and waved hello to me. When he shook his hand,
the meat on his body shook along with him.

I laughed and ask : Did you eat all of Australias sheep? No wonder theres a wool shortage.

Shan Shan laughed: Hehe, yeah, thats why Ive returned here to drink the milk from the
motherland.

Fortunately, Shan Shan was not someone who cared a lot about his appearance. He did not
even bat an eyelid nor react coldly to this tasteless joke.

I would typically irritate people in order to expose them. I tugged at Shan Shan and said
fiercely: When you come back to your home country, you need to have some form of
contribution. How can you just come back to drink the milk from our motherland? You should
cut a little bit of fatty meat from Australia, only then can you contribute to our society.

Shan Shan gave a smile that resembled Buddha: So tell me, how do you want to cut me?

And so, a party of us went to rent a play to sing karaoke very spectacularly.

The small town of ours truly was very small and everything was perfect. The speakers in the
karaoke room were definitely enough to turn everyone into a super loud singer superstar. I
covered my throat and began to rap the Jay Chou song called In The Name of My Father: All
of us are sinners, were just guilty of different crimes. I can decide whos right and who should
be put to sleep. This argument has no solution, its a night that never ends. Turn your mouth
off, its your only saving grace, the ones who block you at the front are all sinners-. The ones
who block you at the front really are sinners. Because once the one who blocked the front
moved away, I saw Fang Yuke cooly walk in.
I couldnt help but ask: You followed me? I said this sentence into the microphone, and it was
endlessly amplified. It was uncomfortably inserted into Jay Chous rap, and there were feelings
of longing

Everyone looked at me, and after a few seconds passed, the death glares had reduced
because the eyes of the ladies had all turned towards Fang Yuke.

I forgot to mention that my friends, especially the female ones were all students who achieved
super high grades at the school of appearances. Choosing their lover over their friends was
part of their nature. All their friends were only good for stabbing in the back. For the sake of
Fang Yuke, I expected that everyone would stab me twice. It added up to a grand total of
fifteen knives thrust into me. Why was it an odd number? Because Yao Zi was bloodthirsty.
She would definitely have to stab one time more than others before she would be satisfied.

Fang Yuke didnt look at me, he walked straight towards Shan Shan and gave him a big loving
hug. In light of Shan Shans bloated physique, everyone believed that this hug was the limit of
Fang Yukes capacity.

Shan Shan picked up a microphone and said : I want to introduce a friend to everyone. Have
you ever heard of Fang Yuke? Hes one of the top students, scoring well into Peking
University. Whether or not hes single is a private matter and has nothing to do with school, this
reporter will refuse to answer any question. Will everyone please respect this and remain
professional- before he could finish speaking, an empty can of beer flew across with a jeer,
smashing on Shan Shans chubby belly and magically stuck into the folds of his flesh.

After laughing heartily, these playgirls started to flirt, they began to ask him about everything
under the sun.

I was bored so I began to sing My Fathers Name again. With some difficulty, I began to
appreciate my own singing. However, these playgirls all began to bombard me: If you want to
sing then go outside and sing. Your singing is too loud, we cant hear properly.

Fang Yuke laughed and walked past them to come to my side, saying loudly: Nice to meet
you

I stared blankly at him, what do you mean lucky. Of course I could not say this out loud, or else
there would be more than just 15 knives in my back. I nodded my head; this should be
considered a greeting.

However, Fang Yuke purposely wanted to make life difficult for me and said loudly once again;
The first thing I said to you in university was also nice to meet you.

Ugh, forget it. This time, these ladies had already stabbed me so many times that I resembled
a hedgehog.

I lowered the music volume and explained to these ladies; However you girls decide to
slaughter me, remember that Im just a student in Peking university. Now that this handsome
brother has come, youve forgotten that Im also a student there too? We are just school
friends.

After Yao Zi received a satisfactory reply, she enchantingly smiled at Fang Yuke.

However, this Fang Yuke of a thousand knives said, Right, were school friends. We were
classmates for 3 years in High school.

I was super angry. Big bro, you can eat whaatever you want, but you cannot say whatever you
want. Who was your classmate? People like you lived in the crystal palace while people like
me lived in a broken temple. You could build an entire playground in the area between the two
school buildings.

I said irritably: We were in the same class but he was a science student, I was an arts student.
There was not much opportunity for us to interact during high school, we only knew each other
during university. Also, he has a regular girlfriend. She even asked me to take good care of him
and make sure he wouldnt be tempted by you wolves.

At this point, Shan Shan laughed: What are you saying, how could you have known each
other only recently. The photo of me and you that was in my house has already been taken
away by him. The one where I had mud on my face, that photo.

I opened my mouth impossibly wide.

Shan Shan hurried to add: Dont you remember that photo? The photo where you dropped
your front tooth, and grinned stupidly when you saw the photo on my face

Damn, I had really been brutally struck by lightning. I couldnt help but dig out that picture from
some nook and cranny of my brain, as well as ask myself why this dear friend of mind would
want to take away such an interesting picture.

Yao Zi immediately gave a satisfactory answer: This hot bros hobby is really unique. He likes
to collect these kinds of photos with so much personality. Anyways, when Lin Lin was young
she took a countless number of photos. The photo just now can be counted as totally
representative of her character. If you want some more, I can show you a few more of her
wearing those open-butt pants looking like a worm, with snot dripping from her nose holding on
to a machine-gun-like-

I hurriedly cut off Yao Zis sentence: Alright, alright, Yao Zi, is there anyone who hurts me like
you do? Have I offended you or played any tricks on you?

Yao Zi smacked me, laughed and said, Friends are for selling. You should just let me sell you
and I will have no worries.

I replied sarcastically: cant you find another topic? You can let your talkative mouth run you
into a wall and die.

Yao Zi didnt say a word, increased the music volume, and affectionately asked Yuke: Mister
Fang, can you give me face and sing Hiroshima, My Love with me? I almost spit out the drink
in my mouth. I have to say, Yao Zi was as brave as Detective Conan, it was the kind of
arrogance where no matter where she went, people would die.
Fang Yuke looked at me, shook his head and said, I dont know how to sing. Listening is
enough for me.
Yao Zi definitely wasnt someone who would die by running into the south wall and immediately
say: do you not know how to sing, or do you not want to sing or do you not want to sing with
me? **Come on baby!

**she says this in english


I felt that this was the limit of Yao Zis english abilities. But I also understood Fang Yuke. Once
he had made up his mind, he would stay firm to the end.
I didnt want the atmosphere to become stiff, so I hurriedly said, How about this, I will rap for
you all. After that, dear friend Fang can give me face and sing one too. Dont be afraid of not
knowing how to sing, you should only be afraid of not daring to sing.

Even though I didnt know whether or not my face would be determined by the quality of Fang
Yukes singing voice, but I could feel that everyones mouth had dropped open such that it
could fit a chicken egg inside.
It was only then that I realized I had rapped before Love in Hiroshima had began to play.

As if he had found something fun to do, Fang Yuke complied: In that case, I will be a
gentleman.

When the music started, the playgirl stuffed the microphone into my hand. If I remember
correctly Hiroshima, My Love had 20 seconds of music that played before the song began so
I decided to go all out.

You have a husband, I have a wife. Loving for a day and a night, should we enjoy such an
affair. Getting lost in our love, remembering how we abandoned it, let us be together, crying for
the good times we had in those days. Did I ever love you? Do I still love you?

When the subtitles for the guys part appeared on screen, I gently put the microphone down.
Fang Yuke didnt sing in the end, he just started at me blankly. I thought that he was playing
around and said angrily: I already gave it my all, you should sing! Ugh!

This was good, for the time being, no one listened to Fang Yukes singing. Shan Shan began:
Thats good ah, Lin Lin, no wonder you entered Peking University, youre really talented. Yao
Zi took the microphone and shouted : Lin Lin, you are my idol!!! Do you practice this
everyday? My female friends all began to clap for me.

If this continued, I would begin to admire myself. Why did my mind suddenly go blank? So
original, I was so original.

Fang Yuke, who was uncharacteristically in a trance, said, Could it be that youve once been a
married woman?

Pei!** Nothing good could ever come out from his mouth. However, this lady was extremely
happy today, I wouldnt quarrel with you. I raised my drink and said loudly: This lady has
opened the Ren and Du meridians***. I have obtained enlightenment!

Pei- Spitting sound made in condescension.

Chapter 18- Returning Home (3)


The next time I met Fang Yuke was at the meeting of the elite association of students.

Even though I had racked my brain- even considering breaking my arms and legs in order to
formulate an excuse to skip the gathering, I had no idea where my mother had gotten ahold of
the fact that this gathering was happening. She escorted me to the school entrance without
explanation before releasing me.

As I walked into school, I used the shortcuts I was familiar with, passing all the popular people.
The popular people from my school were like a few big pieces of stone- each and every one of
their names had tested into the big schools like Peking University and Tsinghua University.
Their head busts could even be carved in stone. This time, Fang Yuke and my head could be
added to the stone. Actually, I never understood why they wanted to use this kind of a method
to encourage their younger classmates. If you looked at it in a particular way, it was like these
were columns of shame. We had been stiffly nailed upon these columns of shame; and if you
looked at it for what it was, they really resembled tombstones. See, they distorted my face until
I looked like the mother of stinky fried tofu everywhere. When I first tested into Peking
University, I decided that I would never come back to my old school. This was because I
wanted to avoid having to witness this kind of scene. Ugh. These celebrities who threw you
away after using you really encouraged one to forget ones roots.

A total of 40 students had all arrived, including the top 20 students of the liberal arts class.
Everyone was in the living room. Besides Class Chairman Fang Ying Yi and Fang Yuke, I
didnt know any of the 37 people even though I did have some impressions of some of their
faces. I felt extremely embarrassed because I heard that the top twenty students would often
meet up and were extremely close. This was probably also the reason why Fang Yuke was
suspicious about my intelligence on the first day that he met me.

Fang Yuke and I were different as he was the champion of Science while I was the champion
of Liberal Arts. While we were eating, we were asked to say a few words. Principle Fang, who
was also Fang Yukes grandfather spoke in an extremely loving tone to Fang Yuke: You both
belong to the same school, and usually you always take care of Zhou Lin Lin. But this time let
the ladies take priority. Let Zhou Lin Lin speak first.

I hated these kind of situation. I hadnt even eaten but I had gotten hit with such a stroke of bad
luck that took away my appetite. I bit the bullet** and stood up, facing the 4 tables of elites.
Then, I cleared my throat and said, Since Principle Fang has let me say a few things, Ill say a
few things. First: everyone should eat well. Second: everyone should play well. Third: Im
done.

(**bit the bullet- Endured


I sat down, drank a mouthful of water and waited for Fang Yuke to make a long speech. A few
people already began to laugh at the side, especially a comrade whose face was full of
pimples.

He laughed until his shoulders trembled.

Laugh? What are you laughing at? This is a gathering. Shouldnt you eat and play well?!

Fang Yuke stood up and there was a thunderous applause from the 4 tables of elites. A few
ladies even shamelessly kept glancing at him, secretly tidying themselves up, pretentiously
showing off. Life is cruel!

What I want to say is, after you have all eaten, there are activities going on in the Chess
Room. Everyone come buy my thin noodles, you definitely have to participate. Ill treat.

Everyone applauded even more excitedly.

Only I became increasingly bored. I thought it was only going to be an hour long meeting but I
didnt expect that the time would be extended.

After drinking 3 rounds of wine, every shy and bold elite quite gratefully toasted Principle Fang.
Principle Fang could no longer handle his alcohol and retired first, leaving the naughty group of
elites behind.

The comrade whose face was full of pimples walked over and said to me: Zhou Lin lin, I am
Yan Shou. I messed up during the university entrance exams and didnt manage to enter the
same school as you. Its really a pity.

I hurriedly stood up and said, Thats way too bad. However my sudden achievement was quite
abnormal, otherwise we really might really have went to the same school.

This time, Yan Shou could not control himself and his shoulders began to shake. He
immediately laughed heartily: Zhou Lin Lin, you are too humorous.

As he laughed, the pimples on his face began to pop.

From the table, Yan Shou was the only one who bothered himself with me. Even if the class
president was around, we were only mere acquaintances who would nod at each other if we
met and nothing else. None of the 37 classmates were interested in getting to know me, and
neither did I have any plans to get to know them. I only hoped that the time would pass by
peacefully. After that, I would find a reason to flee for my life.

I didnt expect that my plans would be so subject to change. Fang Yuke pulled me to every
table to toast our wine, meaning that I should finish it all. Strangely, while raising the cup of
wine, I felt that I was too submissive. The moment Fang Yuke gave an order, I would follow
without error. No matter what I should rebel, ah. If not, I couldnt live up to my title of the
Peerless King Kong Beautiful Maiden.

At the second table, the male elites began to jeer: Are you guys having a wine tasting
demonstration? But at least we get to see what a newly wed bride and groom look like when
theyre toasting the guests.

I snapped: How can it be that elites also like to crack such nonsensical jokes? The female
elites are all watching, if you continue saying these things, a massacre will occur.

Fang Yuke was like a fish in water, who was full of energy while I was weak. As the enemy
advanced, I retreated and argued with others, until a beautiful girl with eyebrows shaped like
willow leaves stood up and came over to toast to me.

This beautiful girl (who, because of her eyebrows, made me want to refer to her as Amy Yip**)
raised her wine glass and said, in the past, my dream was to test into Peking University. Who
would have expected that I fell short by a few points and could only go to Fudan. Heaven did
not help me! After saying this, she smiled bitterly.

Look her up, but shes known as a sex symbol in HK apparently


I didnt really understand. Fudan and Peking University were not that different. Why would she
still feel so upset even though half a year had already gone by? I suppose that people who had
dreams are really different from people like me who dont really have goals or structure in their
life.

Just as I was about to drink, she advised me: Zhou Lin Lin, in any case you have managed to
ride your way into Peking University. How could you just drink [something light like that] and
finish it like that? After that, she said to everyone else: You guys are too protective of the
fairer sex, right?

I immediately said, All right, I will drink whatever you drink with you. I could feel her hostility.
Peking University was a dream she had for many yeras, but this nobody, namely me, had
taken it away from her. Did it make her feel like Peking University had been trampled or that
she had been trampled on? Even though it wasnt my fault, I understood her for a moment. In
my eyes this was just like the time when I had always wanted to buy something from the
display windows in the stores when I was little. When I saw it become someone elses toy on a
given day, a hatred towards that child would arise.

I refilled my beer, smiled and said, Fudan is in a town near us, whenever you want to go
home, you can go home in just 2 hours. Its not like Peking University. You need to sit on a
train for ten-ish of hours. I kind of regret it a bit.

My original intention was to comfort her, but I didnt know if it would look like I was showing off,
by speaking in this manner. I had gotten an advantage cheaply but was pretending to be a
good guy. Leafy eyebrows said emotionlessly: Do you think we dont know that youre being
sarcastic?

Fleeting Midsummer (Peking Universitys Weakest Student)
Fine, I admit that my words required more effort in their composition, but I could not be like
Holy Mother Mary. If you hit me on the left cheek, was I supposed to stick our my right cheek
for you to hit it some more?

I smiled: I had no ill intentions, and Im sorry if you misunderstood. However, feel that [nothing
as drastic] as marrying the wrong guy has occurred so theres no need for a lifetime of regrets.
How about this, Ill toast to you and just treat it as Ive sinned and said the wrong thing, if you
will.

After saying this, I poured another glass of beer.

Leafy eyebrows was so irritated. She was probably feeling wronged from being bullied by this
layman and she threw herself on the table and cried.

I was struck dumb. Unless, I had really spoken too harshly and made the other person so
angry that she cried? Did I really have that much skill?

The female elites surrounded us, ignoring the entire context of the situation, generously
standing beside Leafy eyebrows. One of them said, Ah Rui, dont cry anymore. After testing
into Peking University her tail would definitely stick up. Another one said, So what if you test
in? I heard that even graduates from Peking University still have to sell pig meat when they
come out. Even if you were lucky enough to test in, whether or not you are able to graduate is
uncertain- These words really hit me where it hurt.

However, the circumstances of this elite group of friends were the same as mine. If a friend
was in trouble, we would go through water and fire to group up and beat the enemy. Also, the
degree of their poisonous and vicious words did not lose to ours. If Yao Zi was to cry, I reckon
that I would not bother to find out what really happened and immediately take the enemy
captive. Of course, the one who made Yao Zi cry would have to be beaten into nonexistence.

Fang Yuke who had been silent the entire time finally opened his mouth: Ah Rui, from an
objective point of view, I dont think she said anything wrong. From the beginning, she hasnt
always been a very considerate person. The quality of the school is not a measure of a
persons success. Not to mention, your grades were also not bad. Before the college entrance
examinations, I made preparations to go to second and third rate schools, and theres no point
staking everything on things like your school. Dont be too sensitive. This should be a happy
occasion. Whats the point of turning this into a battlefield and ruin everyones excitement?

After Fang Yuke finished speaking, Ah Rui wiped away her tears and didnt say a word.
Although I appreciated Fang Yuke coming up to rescue me, I scoffed at the part about him
preparing to go to second and third rate schools. If he went to these second and third rate
schools, wouldnt Principle Fang get a brain hemorrhage?

Fang Yuke said to everyone: Lets go to the royal chess room. Ive already booked a private
room. Lets change the atmosphere and have some fun. After he gave his order, all the male
elites were released from the heavy atmosphere and started clamoring about playing cards.
The female elites couldnt avoid giving Fang Yuke some face, as they settled their emotions
and prepared to go off. I looked at the situation clearly and prepared to take my bag and leave.

I didnt expect that Fang Yuke would say in front of everyone: You definitely have to come.
You were the one who destroyed the atmosphere just now, so you have an obligation to repair
it.

You arrogant showoff! Was I the one who destroyed the atmosphere just now? However, I
couldnt be bothered to argue with him. Anyways, I didnt have the ability to reason with him. At
most, I would have to hold on for just a few more hours.

Chapter 19- Returning Home (4)


Full of grandeur, I put my hand on my knee and asked: Excuse me, may I ask if you are a virgin?
When we reached the chess room, everyone began to group into threes as they began to play
cards and play mahjong. At that time, my phone didnt yet have the ability to take pictures, but
if I had been able to, I would have taken a picture as a keepsake. Watching group of elites
playing poker and mahjong was like watching my dad and mom. However this was better than
my ideal Hong Kong TVB drama about the conflict between the rich and powerful.

As I watched everyone gambling enthusiastically, I definitely could not remain a spectator.


Otherwise how would I endure the next few hours to come? I carried a chair and placed it near
Yan Shou. I prepared to instruct Yan Shou using an amazing strategy. From Yao Zis influence,
as well as the influence from a few other friends, my mahjong ability was higher than average
even though I had depended mostly on luck these past 2 rounds.

However, I didnt get any good tiles. There werent that many mahjong tiles yet, so I put on a
very arrogant aura and started to advise about his cards. Every time it was Yan Shous turn, I
would shout: Wait and only after pondering for a loong time, would I then allow Yan Shou to
play his hand. In this way, Yan Shou became a mere puppet. The other 3 were not happy:
Zhou Lin Lin, dont be like this. A true gentleman watches others play chess without
intervening. Yan Shou, you must have courage, how can you be so fickle?

I mischievously laughed: Hehe, youre not even playing chess, and Im also not a person of
noble character. Theres no reason for me to be bound by these rules. As I fished in these
dangerous waters, the host, Fang Yuke, came over. He asked in a very host-like manner:
Whos winning?

Yan Shou said to the boy wearing a turtleneck sweater: Alas. You should control them quickly.
Ten minutes have already passed, but were only on the second round.

Fang Yuke turned his head and said to me: Why are you hanging around with these guys?
The girls are all over there playing truth or dare.

I frankly replied: I better not. If I saw something wrong, then itll be hard to deal with. I better
watch for a few more minutes. Besides, playing truth or dare in the Chess Room sounds really
boring.

The man wearing the turtleneck sweaters eyes lit up: Playing truth or dare does not
necessarily have to be played in a place with red wine. Why dont we play it as well? Theres
no point in gambling since our intelligence only emerges when real money is involved.

Fleeting Midsummer (Peking Universitys Weakest Student)
I felt that this bro had a relatively unique point of view since there were only 4 or 5 people
playing truth or dare. Only he would think of something like this.
We might as well just go in a circle and say: Today my underwear is xx (color) instead, and
just end it like that since it would eventually come to this anyways.

However, Yan Shou, the preceding player contributed more than the elite in the turtleneck
sweater. He stood up and shouted to the group of girls: Lets play together. With boys and
girls together, this activity will have more meaning and usefulness!

Hey, everyone was actually playing pretty happily. I wondered whether these College Entrance
Exams had pressed everyone too hard into becoming abnormal. I didnt expect that they would
be ordinary folk like me, curious about other peoples secrets. I already had nothing to lose by
playing this game since I was not even close to them.

Thus, our group of ten or so quickly crowded around the few mahjong tables rapidly.

However, I immediately lost hope in the female elites and regretted how I had changed my
opinion of them prematurely. I dont know if it was because Fang Yuke was within our group or
whether their naivety was really cute. The questions that the female students asked among
themselves were just: May I ask if you have ever gone to bed without brushing your teeth? I
fainted. I often rushed to class without brushing my teeth. Who knew that this question would
immediately be thrown out. I really had nothing to say. When it came to a few boys who had to
answer the truth, I felt, once again, that I didnt really know them. Even if it they were secrets, it
just became like the forum Secret Garden [1]. There wasnt anything exciting in it for me, so I
almost fell asleep.

However, once it was Fang Yukes turn to answer a Truth from a drunk person, my energy
recovered. Although there was a very harmonious air within the female elite community as they
asked each other questions, it was possible that they would ask Fang Yuke more open
questions. Just now, the nose of the spinning bottle pointed towards a girl with slight freckles
and she asked: When was your first love? At the time, I really felt like beating her up because
I felt that asking direct questions about his first sexual encounter and such, were more
meaningful. Not to mention, I estimated that this comrade didnt even remember when her first
love was.

As expected, Fang Yuke said, I was still small at the time. I dont remember specifically when
it happened. Tsk tsk, I admired him to death, this handsome guy really had confidence
answering in this way.

What did your first love look like? The others were infected by the gossiping energy of the girl
with freckles. Everyone shamelessly ignored the fact that this was the second question. She
violated the rules.

Fang Yuke smiled and kept silent. Everyone was a little disheartened. I was also a little
disappointed. My gossip senses were already stupidly restless so I even more shamelessly
asked the third question: Was your first love a guy or a girl? When I asked this question, it was
purely just to force him to answer more than one question.

Put in an awkward position, Fang Yuke drank a mouthful of water and said : I cant really say.
Her personality was a bit wild.

https://tranzgeek.wordpress.com/fleeting-midsummer-beijing-universitys-weakest-
student/?wref=tp
DFGA 91
Fleeting Midsummer (Peking Universitys Weakest Student)
I fainted. Could it be that he had a crush on someone who was not yet clear on whether they
were male or female? How could he answer in such a cool manner towards this type of an
indiscriminate love. A handsome guy was definitely a target for both males and females.

I gave him a thumbs up, but actually, I wanted to point my middle finger at him instead.

Because Fang Yuke had given me such an effective response to my question, the truth or dare
session turned into an entertaining press conference. Entertainment Reporter A asked: Did
you get together in the end? Why would you say that you cant say? You two didnt contact
each other after that?

Fang Yuke smiled and answered in a way that was rather similar to an idol who was getting
interviewed: You should all not misunderstand. I just said that she was a girl who had a
personality that was much like a boy. Look at that, the truth was out. Most would strike the
Absolute Ultimate truth with three questions, but he avoided the question content and said but
one sentence.

Entertainment Reporter B immediately grabbed the mirror: Have you confessed to her? Was
your confession successful?

Fang Yuke said, In the beginning, I had not yet known that these kind of feelings were love. I
worried that a confession would scare her away, so I could only watch her from the side. When
I finally had an opportunity to get close to her and slowly nurture these feelings, she already
liked someone else. He was really a man with deep feelings. Wasnt this the role of Won Bin
from Autumn in My Heart? No wonder I thought he resembled Won Bin ever since he stopped
wearing glasses. I never expected that his temperament would be so similar to Won Bin, from
the inside out. It was over, this Entertainment Reporter was definitely going to become his fan.

The entertainers were not done with their questioning. I reached out my hand, stopping their
indiscriminate bombardment. Up to now, the questions were mild. They hadnt hit any main
points at all. Full of grandeur, I put my hand flat on my knee and asked: Excuse me, may I ask
if you are a virgin?

After I had asked, the three guys who were at the side began to become very active. The other
questions had bored them to death, and they were almost ready to go back to playing
mahjong. This question was dirty enough. They looked at me thankfully and began to applaud
excitedly and even threatened Fang Yuke: You have to answer this, youre not allowed to
drink alcohol in the place of answering the question!

The female elites began to fidget, wanting to know the answer yet afraid of hearing an
unfavorable answer. Some faces were also red. Damn, it wasnt like they were the subjects of
that wedding night .

Fang Yuke calmly said, I hope that, when I am able to find her again, and I answer this
question again, I wont lose face. The girls were still contemplating this answer while the boys
had already turned on the fire: Haha, Yuke ah, its still early. If this is still your answer one year
later, we will begin to suspect you

These dirty boys caused the female elites to cover their faces. I really didnt understand. How
did they organize this truth or dare game if they couldnt even handle these kinds of questions?

Fang Yuke picked up the wine bottle that was lying on the table, indicating that he was ready to
start the bombardment of questions again.

Heavens revenge was really timely, the nose of the bottle stopped in front of me. The
movie Internal Affairs was right. If you became a jerk, one day you would be on the receiving
end.
Fang Yuke smirked at me.

I thought that he would ask me whether or not I was a virgin. I didnt expect that Fang Yuke
would ask: Please tell me what you think about love.
The atmosphere instantly froze. This cold faced killer truly deserved to remain in the freezer
forever. The question he asked was of the same standard as the female elites. The three boys
who initially thought of watching a good show had disappointment written all over their faces.

This kind of question that could be found in an essay writing report could be answered in a
moment. I already knew what I was going to say. After thinking, I said, Love is like a religion.
Some have a religion and some dont. I thought of Xiao Xi, Yi Lian, Ru Ting and Fang Yukes
first love. In order to love, we must be devout believers.

I seemed to hear Fang Yuke say in deep thought: Whether or not you believe in it, it will
always be present.

Chapter 20- Returning Home (5)


I woke up really early on New Years Eve. This town did not ban fireworks like Beijing did. The
sounds of the childrens laughter as they played with the fireworks came in from outside the
window. When I was young, I loved the coming of the new year. There were new clothes to
wear, big red packets to take, and I was carefree with no fear- even now I still loved the new
year- because I didnt need to go to school Actually even up to now I hadnt run into many
problems. I was just worried about my work and exams. Thinking about this, it really didnt
count as a major setback or frustration. I was a little envious of the females on TV who acted in
those shows where they would brave through the winds and storms to reach clear skies. At
least as it neared a new year, one could take a look at life as it kept changing, peering into the
past.

After eating lunch, I planned to self discipline myself. At that time, my mother had not yet
become an stock investor and my home had no computer. I braved the cold wind to go to an
internet cafe, as I prepared to send an email to Xiao Xi.

When I opened my mailbox, the computer cursor flashed and the computer screen was
completely white. Because I did not know whether I wanted it to be a love letter or a simple
narrative. I wrote some and deleted some, deleted some more and continued writing. I finally
wrote: Xiao Xi, my family has begun to wrap some dumplings. Although this kind of a tradition
isnt upheld in this region, my mum says eating dumplings represents reunion. I hope that, next
New Years Eve, you and I will be sitting around the reunion table eating dumplings. Oh and I
never understood, although your dream was to enter Peking Universitys medical school, why
did you end up going to the Economics Department?

I silently read this email two times. I felt this message seemed like a love letter and also like a
narrative. I had even brought up some nutritional issues within the email. It seemed that I really
https://tranzgeek.wordpress.com/fleeting-midsummer-beijing-universitys-weakest-
student/?wref=tp
DFGA 93
Fleeting Midsummer (Peking Universitys Weakest Student)
couldnt stop myself from modelling the email after the standard love letter. Only then did I
carefully and solemnly hit Send.

In the ancient times, did the girl who sent the swan goose out to send a letter look up at the sky
everyday, waiting for her carrier pigeon to return? But why would she even allow the bird to
poop on her face so easily like that, especially with the quality of the air, in the era of rampant
birds and beasts. The pretty daughter in a humble family that I imagined wiped her face while
thinking foolishly: Science and technology have developed tons. I dont need to really raise my
hand and look around, expecting a reply. As long as I quietly wait, it will be okay.

On the way back home from the internet cafe, I received a call from Yao Zi.

Yao Zi shouted into the phone: Lin Lin, lets go release some fireworks tonight.

I calmly asked: Say it, who else do you want to invite.

Yao Zi was cheerful at the other end: How did you know I wanted to invite some other
people?

Rubbish. Being with you for twenty years, I havent even seen you invite me out to play with a
kite. This time, youve made it sound so romantic. What kind of a crafty idea do you have in
mind?

Hehe, youre still the one who understands me. Gimme a kiss~~ I have also invited Shan
Shan, and I will let Shan Shan invite Fang Yuke. The four of us can go release some fireworks.
Tonight at 10:00, lets meet by the road of Jiang Huai. Shan Shan will drive over.

When will that rascal Shan Shan get a drivers license? The drivers license he got abroad
doesnt count domestically.

Ugh, when did you become such a grandmother (TLN: alludes to women who love to be nosy
and scold other ppl). Shan Shan has driven his car so many years abroad, so he cant be
stopped by a mere drivers license after he returns. See you later!

In fact, I really didnt want Fang Yuke and Yao Zi to go out together. Fang Yukes heart already
had someone he liked. Yesterday afternoon, the expression that appeared when he mentioned
her, I also saw on Xiao Xis face when he looked at Yi Lian. Liking someone whose heart had
someone else was very painful. I feared that Yao Zi would become fatally attracted to him with
unrequited longing just like me, even though the longest Yao Zi stayed with her boyfriends was
3 months at the max

At night, we ate dumplings and watched CCTV New Years Gala with our grandparents. Our
parents began to attend to the guests and play mahjong. As I watched the clock turn to 9:00, I
decided that I would go for a stroll while heading to Jianghuan Road.

It was really sad that all the businesses had closed on the last day of the lunar year. As I
looked at the fireworks by myself, I seemed very lonely, especially when as I walked on the
Jiangdong Big Bridge. Many lovers turned back to look at me. I think they must have been
afraid I would commit suicide and jump.

If I had known this earlier, I would have set out at 10:00 pm instead. But now, I didnt know how
long it would take me to return. Continuing on and returning were just about the same, just like
my love. I had persevered with my pain and had unfortunately let go of it. Those indiscernible
thoughts and longings nagged at me. I shouted, as I continued to fight for my love. But these
longings arose from pain, incessantly reminding me, just as they made me halt and turn my
head.

On this lively, auspicious and peaceful evening, it was the first time I began to solemnly
consider these issues concerning feelings, so much so that I began to examine yesterdays
question: What was the definition of love? In front of the Love God, was I really a pious
believer? Why would I be indecisive? I shrunk my neck and pulled the down-filled clothing
around me a little tighter, as I lay over the railing, watching the river warmly flow under the
bridge and flow under my body. I felt a little emotional, almost like I wanted to cry. The
fireworks from a distance became more and more beautiful, and I felt more and more
distressed. This was not really like me. I remembered when I accompanied my mother and
watched Autumn in my Heart (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Autumn_in_My_Heart). When
Song Hye Kyo lay on her oppas body and died, my mom cried like her own son had died. I
hadnt shed a single tear. But now, my heart had been indescribably drawn out upon seeing
fireworks.

Behind me, someone tapped me on the shoulder. I didnt turn around. If a nosy auntie arrived
behind me, advised me not to jump into the river, it would wreck my mournful mood and cut
short my beautiful atmosphere.

The person behind me patted my shoulder again. I angrily turned around, just about to yell:
Dont meddle in other peoples business, when I found that Fang Yuke stood in front of me,
suspiciously watching me. He asked: Enjoying the breezy wind on a hot day?

I nodded: standing on the bridge looking at the scenery, looking at the people in the scenery
watching me from upstairs. Im pursuing an artistic mood.

Fang Yuke walked forwards a few steps and put his fingers onto the railing, laughing as he
said, Youve mastered reciting poems. Youve improved.

I disdainfully said, Ive already composed some poems back at KTV. Reciting poems is childs
play as far as Im concerned.

Fang Yuke didnt jeer at me like he used to. Instead, he merely laughed, looking at the running
water underneath the bridge. I faced the horizon. As it approached midnight, the fireworks
began to intensify, as they became more and more gorgeous. The river water was reflected
with so many [fireworks] that it became every color under the sun. It was extremely pleasant. I
asked Fang Yuke: Fang Yuke, why do you like your first love?

Fang Yuke warmly looked at the surface of the river: I like everything about her, including her
bad temper, and foolish brains. If she were any dumber, I would really go with her to a second
or third rate university. I dont know if she would be happier there, than now.

It turned out that that person was at Peking University. It was only that I really couldnt tell if he
wanted a beautiful woman master without a country/power. I continued to ask the question that
perplexed me the most: If your first love doesnt like you, will you give up?

https://tranzgeek.wordpress.com/fleeting-midsummer-beijing-universitys-weakest-
student/?wref=tp

Fleeting Midsummer (Peking Universitys Weakest Student)
Fang Yuke silently looked at the river water under his feat.

I anxiously said, Im only saying if, so its only a hypothesis.

Fang Yuke lifted his head to look at me. The fireworks sprinkled brightly colored shadows upon
his face. He steadily looked into my eyes, almost as if he was making a serious and solemn
commitment: No. I will always be close to her. I will always be by her side, until she is
inseparable from me.

I surprisedly spoke: Could it be that your first love is Ru Ting? No wonder youre inseparable
from her. Her temper is indeed not good. Last time when we were at your house, it was almost
as if she was having convulsions. I have no idea why you would compare her to a boy so thus,
I have no choice to but to conclude that a lovers point of view often takes on a whole attitude
of its own. But, her head is definitely not dumb, even though in your eyes, everyone is dumb.
Plus, the whole world knows that she likes you. You can pretend to be worried over yonder,
aloof, while not confessing your feelings. Are you guys just missing something to pierce
through that one layer of thin paper? Do you need me to help? I hadnt waited for him to
answer before I exclaimed: Yesterday I even thought that you were like me, with unrequited
longing. Alas, in one night I have lost another friend to go through difficulties with.

Fang Yuke did not pacify my wounded spirit. Instead, he looked at the faraway fireworks and
said, I am thinking of how powerful the inertia of a persons line of thought can be. Others
must explain something for them clearly from beginning to end before they can admit to their
mistake, and before they can ponder over other new possibilities. For living things, they make
an indirect approach towards making inquiries, especially towards some sluggish lines of
thought. Hinting is just like fireworks. After she finishes looking at it, the matter is over. After
she finishes listening to it, the matter closes, but she doesnt think about why the fireworks
blossom into different shapes. Sometimes I cant help myself and I want to tell her, that the
blossoming-star shapes in the sky signify how I love her so much I go dizzy, .When they
blossom into umbrella shapes, it signifies how much I want to protect her. When it blossoms
into rocket cannons, it signifies how I get so mad but I cant change her at all. But, I am afraid I
still dont have time to tell her about the implied meaning in my words because she will be
scared away by me before I finish. Because she just pretends to be a very valiant paper tiger,
but escapes when she meets problems- or she is an ostrich who takes her head and buries it
into the ground , believing that since she cant see anything she doesnt need to worry about it.

I more I listened, the more confused I became. Although these foreign words had a context as
we conversed about it, I still thought that his method of thinking was strange, I couldnt
understand his thought process, I didnt know what kind of irregularity had come upon this guy
who had begun to contemplate the existence of fireworks. It is possible that the saying that as
love stands in front of a person, he will turn into a fool or an idiot, is true. Ru Ting even made
me take care of Fang Yuke without letting him out of my sight without knowing that the other
people had already gone crazy from love to an unknown degree. Others wanted to deliberately
dig into a corner of the wall while Fang Yukes heart was obviously an iron wall, wrapping
around her like a prison. Poor Yao Zi.

When I arrived at Jianghu Road, I saw a lump in the distance that was Shan Shan. It made
Yao Zi who was beside him seem especially delicate. This small town was truly tiny. We hadnt
even driven the car for 20 minutes before we reached the outskirts of the town. I asked Yao Zi
at the side: Why on earth are we going to the outskirts to release fireworks? What if we meet
misfortune and are robbed in the pitch darkness?

https://tranzgeek.wordpress.com/fleeting-midsummer-beijing-universitys-weakest-

Fleeting Midsummer (Peking Universitys Weakest Student)
Yao Zi impatiently said, Releasing fireworks is only meaningful when you release them here.
All the fireworks above your head are from yourself. How is it like the city center, where you
dont know which fireworks are yours when you raise your head? Plus, if they want to rob
anyone, theyll rob Shan Shan. If they want to rape anyone, then theyll only rape me. You
dont need to worry.

Fang Yuke and Shan Shan laughed beside me.

After a while, Shan Shan took out a pile of barbecue racks over, and enthusiastically said, The
moonless wind in the night, kills and burns the sky. Since weve come, lets release some
fireworks.

I felt that Chinese New Years Eve was really tormenting enough. In the middle of the night, a
few people were barbecuing under the car lights. People who didnt know anything would think
that they were refugees.

Yao Zi put four firework tubes in all four corners of the small plaza and arranged them. In ten
minutes, it would be Chinese New Year. Fang Yuke and I helped Shan light the fire and dress
the chicken wings. We were really busy.

In the last minute, Yao Zi gave all of us lighters, letting us ignite the fireworks together. My
hand shook as I ignited the fuse, immediately after which the fuse issued a ci la sound. I
immediately ran very far away, watching the other three people unhurriedly still igniting the fire.
In this way, the sky was first brightened with my firework. First, there was purple rays of small
circles, which then changed into a huge parachute, immediately following which seemed like
yellow chrysanthemum. At this time, gorgeous firework patterns began to appear in the other
corners of the sky. When a few patterns intersected and folded over together, it seemed as if
we were at the plaza during the daytime.

Yao Zi loudly said in the midst of the fireworks sound: Lin Lin, if you have any wishes say
them now. God has been woken up by us, so he has no choice but to listen to us speak~~
I mischievously laughed, and used my hand to draw up my mouth, as I yelled to the sky: I
want my husband!

Yao Zi became happy, and said to me: You really are gullible. You would even do such a
humiliating thing.

I had been played again by her. I angrily patted her. Shan Shan clapped his hands at the side:
Oh, finally she has opened her eyes. When I was little, I was bullied so miserably by you, but
at long last, someone can bully you now. Revenge is a dish best served cold.

Fang Yuke was about to open his mouth, when I glared at him: Say something more pleasant
to the ears. Otherwise, dont talk. Otherwise, I will record any of their mean words on your
body.

He warmly laughed, and put his hand around his mouth just like I did and yelled to the almost
extinguished fireworks: I want my wife!

Everyones mind became blank. I was the first to react, as I rushed towards him and blurted: I
just knew you were the most sinister. How could you still mock me at a moment like this? Are

you trying to fight me for my position with God? People who are blessed truly dont know what
it means to suffer. Isnt your wife already by your side?

Fang Yuke laughed happily, and nodded his head to express his consent.

I didnt get mad. Fang Yuke laughed really attractively. Before, he said he didnt take off his
glasses because he was afraid he was too handsome, and that was really true. If he usually
laughed like how he was now, I was afraid that Ru Tings competitors would increase by many
times.

I said, Fang Yuke, you must be devoted, just like in the past, wholeheartedly loving your wife.
Make me believe in love, and make me deathly jealous.
Fang Yuke nodded his head solemnly.

Chapter 21- Pondering About a Painful Experience


Not dead, happy yet?
The next few days, I would often go to the internet cafe to check if I had received any emails. I
actually did receive a new mail in my mailbox. I excitedly paid my respects to God, Allah and
the Goddess of Mercy. I shivered and almost clicked on the button that would read out the
mail. The mail was indeed sent by Xiao Xi and there were a few sentences:

I have received your email. Due to some circumstances at home, I will not be able to reach
school on time. You should head down with Fang Yuke first.

Also, call me if anything happens. I dont check my email often. Please excuse me.

I read that message and pondered over it many times. I only turned off the computer off and
left when I could recite all 45 words by heart. I pondered about it very painstakingly for a long
time. How could I talk to him for a long time without being a disturbance? Sending email was
the easiest way that I could think of. If it didnt work out, I could refuse to acknowledge it,
misread it and even lie to myself about what his emotions and feelings were upon receiving the
mail. However, I didnt expect that I would get rejected on my first try. The question that I had
so confidently asked myself had went ignored and my attempts at trying to win his favor had
also not been acknowledged at all. I still had yet to experience the first exchange between two
lovers eyes, in which the beginning of school would be meaningless without the lead
character. Officially alienated, I didnt even get a single chance before I was cast out, causing
me to break off any strand of hope. The 7th day of Chinese New Year had yet to arrive but I
gave my mother a random excuse and set off to Beijing alone.

I didnt want to come back with Fang Yuke. First, there was my relationship with Ru Ting. I
didnt want to experience her wrath just because I spent too much time with him. The second
reason was because I wanted to use this as a way to rebel against what Xiao Xi had written in
his letter. Just because he said it didnt mean that I had to do so. Even though I knew that my
act of rebellion meant nothing in the eyes of others and Xiao Xi.

It was very cold in school. Even the teaching building of the first year uni students, had few
people. Even the canteen had only one stall open and it just had to be the one that was
furthest from my dorm. In order to avoid having to avoid such troublesome things like changing

my clothes to leave the house, I bought a big haversack, turned off my handphone, unplugged
the phone wire and prepared to hibernate.

In this way, I slept muddle-headedly for a few days until I could no longer sleep anymore. Only
now, did I turn on the computer and get on the Internet with my swollen face. TLN: This is the
true horror of schoolmaking it so students sleep for 36ish hours straight until they recover
Mwahahaha The login page automatically started blinking, notifying me of a new message. I
clicked on it to check my email. The sender was called Heart Jumps. The content was
extremely tyrannical: 22:05 Have you died? 22:50: If youre alive please let out a small sound.
23:00 Why did you run back to school? Remember to charge your phone 23:20: You
intentionally turned off your phone? 23:25: Why did you also disconnect your dorm phone?

My brain was still foggy, but I remembered that Heart Jumps was Fang Yuke. On the
message construction page, I wrote: Not dead, disappointed yet?

Fang Yukes icon immediately lit up: You scoundrel, I just found out today that you went home
first. No loyalty.

The impression that Fang Yuke gave me was more and more like a demon. Although his words
were venomous through and through, he was a good brother.

I put on a very sorry expression and wrote: Thinking of me so much! You better clear
this chat away. If someone sees this, that someone will go crazy with jealousy. I will be the one
who suffers. I then sent him an emoticon of someone hammering his head.

Whats on your mind? Why else would you go home alone?

I sighed. I didnt know why, I hesitated for a long while. I pondered over the issues of my heart
indefinitely over a few days sleep, and I finally came to a conclusion that allowed me to write a
very intentional message on the computer: I had put in a last burst of efforts towards my love,
but I did not succeed. I suddenly realized that I was not that kind of thick skinned, infallible
person who could fight for succeed in the face of adversity or death. I am, in the end, someone
who retreats when it gets hard. So I have decided to give up.

Fang Yuke didnt start typing on his end.

I continued to write: I thought that, because I had met him out of the thousands of people, it
had to be him. How many things in this world will go according to how you want it? You better
not laugh at me. This peerless King Kong beautiful maiden also has her weak side. Its the
same as the characters in the games you play; after getting sliced by countless blades, theyll
die sooner or later, unable to stem their blood flow. I wanted to take advantage of the time that
I still had to retreat to give myself a chance at survival. I wanted to be like you; a grand person
of endless passions and emotions so that I could become so close to him that he could never
leave me. Its a pity that I cant be as dedicated as you, nor as brave. Ive found someone that I
liked but I cant charge forth selflessly. I even had to contemplate for such a long time, finding
so many excuses to protect myself. Isnt it such a joke? I thought that I could treat love in the
same way as you did. In the end, I found out that Im a coward who is unable to withstand even
a single blow. I cant attack well. I dont even know whether Im good at defending. Maybe in
the future, if theres an opportunity, Ill find out.

I received Fang Yukes reply: Its better to suffer now than later on. Take care of your health;
if you have time, then go out for a walk.

I put on a smile and wrote: Thanks. In front of the Love God, Im definitely not a good disciple.
Retreating whenever I want.

He replied: Youve joined an evil cult. But its okay now that youve stopped going down the
wrong path.

I laughed : How do you know whether or not your teachings are not of an evil cults?

He replied: Because I can guarantee that you will find fortune at the end. Both of us will be
blessed.

I said : You had better not lay it on too thick. My emotions are currently unoccupied, be careful
that I dont end up as your third party. Ill see whether or not you can still remain so confident.

He replied with an emoticon that was cheering and said, I welcome the challenge!

After talking to Fang Yuke, the pain in my heart lessened by a lot. It could have been because
of the conversation on the internet, which served as medium of distraction that allowed me to
express my thoughts without holding back at all. From this moment on, I wrote Fang Yuke onto
my list of good friends.

When school opened, I didnt sink into a deep and dark contemplative mood. Julie and I joked
the whole way to class. Many times, I would tease Julie until she had to stand at the public
square of the Hundredth Anniversary Commemorative class and double up with laughter,
coming just short of lying on the floor and rolling around. I even signed up for a Charity-based
club, giving tuition to the small children living in impoverished areas. But, I still felt slightly
unconfident, afraid that I was a bad teacher who would lead people astray or even ruin other
people.

During this period of pondering about my painful experiences, my key takeaway was: I had
successfully dieted. I forced myself to eat during the proper times. However, every time I ate a
few bites of bread, I would see my favorite Braised Pork and rapidly lose interest. Looking at
myself in the mirror, I thought that I would look good in swimming class now. I could guarantee
that if I put on a swimming suit now, I would not have any excess flab, even if I wouldnt look
too sexy.

I checked whether I would be able to become an endorser for some random company on the
overhead bridge, before offering to lose weight for a specialist agency, comparing a photo from
before the diet and considering it as a part time job so I could earn a bit of additional revenue.

Speaking of swimming, I had no idea Peking University made the class mandatory for the
entire school. It was almost as if everyone lived on some island and could encounter a tsunami
anytime. Especially for people like me who lived in a patchwork of waterways, especially in
Jiangsu, ignorant of even the fundamental skills of anything related to water, this kind of of a
mandatory class was basically torture. Because there were a lot of students from Peking
University, teachers treated the students from the southern part of the country as if they were

water-borne animals. It was almost as if they assumed that we had gills and did not need to
use our lungs to breathe the moment we entered the water.

Chapter 22- Trusting Each Other Fully


Fang Yuke, the CK representative, and I (with a flat chested stature) mutually appraise each other.
Julie forced me to go buy a bikini. The reason that she used to persuade me was extremely
convincing: A person who is single should wear clothes that attract the opposite sex. Later, I
decided that Julie was definitely a very high-level schemer. Because when I wore my bikini, I
immediately changed into cannon fodder. That is, I was being used for setting off Julies
scorching figure. I would forever just remain the friend beside the hot girl.

I accepted Julies bikini recommendation, but my other reason for accepting it was that
swimming classes were separated into a male class and a female class. In this way, wearing a
bikini was still okay, so much so that it didnt matter if we were naked during class. But, I didnt
expect that even though the class would be divided into male and female classes, we still had
to share the class location. Because Peking University had only one swimming pool, and this
was a required course, males and females occupied each of the four lanes in the swimming
pool. At this end of the pool, it was the females class. On the other side, it was the mens
class. Two classes of people were separated into broad lanes and we surreptitiously, or
brazenly surveyed each other, and sized up each others circumstances.

In the first class, the physical education teacher wore a T-shirt and came over. She introduced
herself quite frankly and said, Hello all classmates. I was originally the teacher for the
basketball class, and I am surnamed Zhang. This year, of the teachers majoring in swimming,
one got pregnant, and the other one went to our national swimming team to support them.
Thus, this teacher is a bit nervous, I was only used to make up for the lack of teachers. I hope
you classmates can take care of me more during class.

I was dumbstruck. What kind of circumstance was this? A student who was afraid of water had
come across a teacher who specialized in doing exercises on dry land. I couldnt say whether I
could master swimming this semester.

The teacher once again said, Those of you who already know how to swim, please raise your
hand.

About ten hands raised into the air. Among them was Julie. I calculated that our class had 20
students, which meant that the remaining individuals were what I counted

The teacher satisfactorily indicated that everyone should put their hands down: After a while,
these students will swim for me. Remember, breaststroke and doggy paddle do not count. If
your posture is to the norm, then you dont need to come to class. Next week you can go
immediately to take part in the 200m exams. The other people can only learn how to swim
breaststroke with the correct posture, and cannot stop in the middle of swimming 200m. For
the rest of class, you can also apply for the test early and take it early. Everyone who has
passed the exam only has to sit for a makeup exam of the theoretical content on the last class.
I will help you guys take this class.

My heart thought that I was finished. Would a teacher who didnt know how to swim and the
rest of the 19 students look at me taking the 200m test on the last class? Such a humiliating
prospect, please do not let it happen to me!

To let me despair thoroughly, the teacher added: Of the remaining students, those of you who
have never touched water, please raise your hands.

I shivered as I heaved my hand up. When I looked back, I was the only one to raise my hand
out of the twenty people.

Can you not be so dramatic?

I am a weak student, but you are not allowed to bully me.

The teacher let us line up along the pool, and do some warmup exercises before entering the
pool. I dispiritedly followed the teachers tempo, extending my hands and turning my neck.
Right when I was about to turn my neck to the center position, I saw that within the ranks of the
schoolboys across from us, there was a familiar yet strange figureFang Yuke
I surprisedly felt my neck almost snap. At once, I gave a meaningful look at Julie. Julie had
also seen Fang Yuke. But she was very valiant, and didnt express the slightest amount of
wonder. She only exclaimed in admiration: His figure is so great!

I fell backwardsThis was the first time I had seen Fang Yuke this semester. Last time, on the
bridge, when I had expressed my heartfelt feelings, I could only pretend he existed as an
imaginary character. Right now, seeing him, I always felt a little uneasy, and a faint bit of regret
that we had talked so frankly. When one takes off his or her camouflage and revealed his or
her true opinions, then one wont have a thread of a sense of security. It just felt as
uncomfortable as me wearing this swimsuit, standing in a crowd of boys who werent that far
away from me. But I never thought that Fang Yuke would be frank with me to the end ..Even
though I said that from now on, I would take him as a good friend, God did not need to overlook
other arrangements, right?

But, as for the charm of the present, if I didnt take a look it would be wasted. I also managed to
look quite a bit

Yup. It was indeed a masculine figure

I had to feel those pectoral muscles if I had an opportunity, to see if it really was as strong as it
looked.

I was embarrassed to comment on the part in the middle of his body, but he had everything he
should have had
His legs were very straight and slender

He could completely be an endorser for CK

I drew back the corners of my mouth into a smile. Because there was a distance between us, I
did not have to worry about being too engrossed. Haha

I quietly said to Julie: Julie, now, do you still have the mood to test early?

Julie immediately said, How can I take the exam early? I must come here every week to
toughen up and cultivate my mind.

I hoped that Fang Yuke could attract some female classmates until I learned how to swim. But I
also hoped, contradictorily, that hed better take the exam early so that I would not have to be
exposed in a crowd that gradually lessened.

After class, Julie and I finished bathing at the public baths. We planned to go to the nearby
dining hall to have a meal. We hadnt walked a few steps before I saw Fang Yuke had also
come out from the public baths. A towel even dangled from his neck. I hurriedly pulled Julie
over. Julie didnt understand the situation and looked around everywhere for any strange
circumstances. The moment she saw Fang Yuke, she pulled away from my hand and loudly
yelled at Fang Yuke: Fang Yuke

Oh, dont tell me that I didnt have a single reserved woman by my side?

Fang Yuke nodded his head to express his greeting in return. He was very aloof. Full of joy and
expectations, Julie said, Have you eaten? Do you want to eat with us? We havent had time to
thank you person about the computer class affair. What about we fix a date for today, and
today well invite you out to eat.

I promptly persuaded: He isnt used to letting girls treat, so dont court him like that. We should
still go back to the dorm quickly.

I turned my head and laughed: See you later~~

I didnt think that Fang Yuke would say: I am a little hungry now, but its a pity that I didnt bring
my food card or wallet when I went out to swim.

Julie laughed mischievously: Lets go.

It was like this that the three of us, wet and in despair, lifted a bath basket in each hand in the
winter, as we walked to the Southern entrance of Shinwong temple.
Julie hadnt even started eating before she began to become overcome with excitement. She
chattered incessantly: Fang Yuke, we have PE at the same time as you, its so coincidental.
Do you know how to swim?

Oh, who was the one who looked at him until their eyes began to become vertical lines?

Fang Yuke laughed: Im all right.

Julie asked again: If you guys know how to swim, can you take the exam early?

Fang Yuke shook his head.

Julie smiled, pleased. She turned towards me and winked. I became depressed. How could
this young lady become so excited, just like someone who had injected chicken blood [1]?

I silently drank my hot tea, not knowing what to say. The whole meal was very strange.
Throughout the time, only Julie brought up special topics and talked. Fang Yuke and I
cooperated with her and became the audience. Occasionally we would say a Right Is that
so? Of course and other things like that to deal with her.

When Julie went to the bathroom, Fang Yuke suddenly opened his mouth: So you actually
cant swim.

How did you know? I immediately asked.

Fang Yuke laughed.

It turned out that when I raised my hand to express that I had not went into the water before, he
had seen me. Then hadnt he caught sight of that bikini? I couldnt help but put both hands in
front of my chest and strike a pose: In the future, you are not allowed to look at me foolishly.
You swim what you have to.

Fang Yuke lazily said, You looked at me for so long and I didnt say anything. Arent you only
stopping other people from glancing at you because your swimsuit was so open? Plus, theres
nothing to even see.

Hey, how could this person have such a sharp mouth and teeth? I was extremely annoyed but I
indeed had nothing much for people to look at

Fang Yuke: I initially thought that that you were skinny only because you took off your clothes.
Right now, looking at you, you are really very skinny.

I refused his assessment. With regards to my emotions, he was clearer than Julie was. I hadnt
much to explain. It was only that this sentence of you were skinny only because you took off
your clothes made me feel a little out of sorts. Julie came back from the bathroom and saw us
talking and said, I just felt you two had quarreled. How come you didnt speak at all? It turns
out you can only talk when Im not around. What were you talking about?

Fang Yuke said, Nothing much. I was just asking her to take care of her body. If she gets any
skinnier, then no one will want her anymore.

I angrily grabbed my chopsticks and poked him: Who wont want me? This old lady is loved
upon everyones first glance. Tomorrow, Ill go to the magpie bridge [2] and put my photo there.
I swear that my phone will blow up and my mailbox will be paralyzed.

Fang Yuke laughed: Yup, thats definite. Then theyll all complain about you. It doesnt matter
if you look ugly, but if you look ugly and refuse to dive underwater, when you come out and
scare people, it will be your fault.

I regretted forgetting that he had a poisonous tongue. How could I quarrel with him?!

honor of the myth of Niulang and Zhinu), and they hope to find their one true love just like in

Chapter 23- Ru Tings Birthday Party (1)
Fang Yuke, the CK representative, and I (with a flat chested stature) mutually appraise each other.
Julie forced me to go buy a bikini. The reason that she used to persuade me was extremely
convincing: A person who is single should wear clothes that attract the opposite sex. Later, I
decided that Julie was definitely a very high-level schemer. Because when I wore my bikini, I
immediately changed into cannon fodder. That is, I was being used for setting off Julies
scorching figure. I would forever just remain the friend beside the hot girl.

I accepted Julies bikini recommendation, but my other reason for accepting it was that
swimming classes were separated into a male class and a female class. In this way, wearing a
bikini was still okay, so much so that it didnt matter if we were naked during class. But, I didnt
expect that even though the class would be divided into male and female classes, we still had
to share the class location. Because Peking University had only one swimming pool, and this
was a required course, males and females occupied each of the four lanes in the swimming
pool. At this end of the pool, it was the females class. On the other side, it was the mens
class. Two classes of people were separated into broad lanes and we surreptitiously, or
brazenly surveyed each other, and sized up each others circumstances.

In the first class, the physical education teacher wore a T-shirt and came over. She introduced
herself quite frankly and said, Hello all classmates. I was originally the teacher for the
basketball class, and I am surnamed Zhang. This year, of the teachers majoring in swimming,
one got pregnant, and the other one went to our national swimming team to support them.
Thus, this teacher is a bit nervous, I was only used to make up for the lack of teachers. I hope
you classmates can take care of me more during class.

I was dumbstruck. What kind of circumstance was this? A student who was afraid of water had
come across a teacher who specialized in doing exercises on dry land. I couldnt say whether I
could master swimming this semester.

The teacher once again said, Those of you who already know how to swim, please raise your
hand.

About ten hands raised into the air. Among them was Julie. I calculated that our class had 20
students, which meant that the remaining individuals were what I counted

The teacher satisfactorily indicated that everyone should put their hands down: After a while,
these students will swim for me. Remember, breaststroke and doggy paddle do not count. If
your posture is to the norm, then you dont need to come to class. Next week you can go
immediately to take part in the 200m exams. The other people can only learn how to swim
breaststroke with the correct posture, and cannot stop in the middle of swimming 200m. For
the rest of class, you can also apply for the test early and take it early. Everyone who has

passed the exam only has to sit for a makeup exam of the theoretical content on the last class.
I will help you guys take this class.

My heart thought that I was finished. Would a teacher who didnt know how to swim and the
rest of the 19 students look at me taking the 200m test on the last class? Such a humiliating
prospect, please do not let it happen to me!

To let me despair thoroughly, the teacher added: Of the remaining students, those of you who
have never touched water, please raise your hands.

I shivered as I heaved my hand up. When I looked back, I was the only one to raise my hand
out of the twenty people.

Can you not be so dramatic?

I am a weak student, but you are not allowed to bully me.

The teacher let us line up along the pool, and do some warmup exercises before entering the
pool. I dispiritedly followed the teachers tempo, extending my hands and turning my neck.
Right when I was about to turn my neck to the center position, I saw that within the ranks of the
schoolboys across from us, there was a familiar yet strange figureFang Yuke
I surprisedly felt my neck almost snap. At once, I gave a meaningful look at Julie. Julie had
also seen Fang Yuke. But she was very valiant, and didnt express the slightest amount of
wonder. She only exclaimed in admiration: His figure is so great!

I fell backwardsThis was the first time I had seen Fang Yuke this semester. Last time, on the
bridge, when I had expressed my heartfelt feelings, I could only pretend he existed as an
imaginary character. Right now, seeing him, I always felt a little uneasy, and a faint bit of regret
that we had talked so frankly. When one takes off his or her camouflage and revealed his or
her true opinions, then one wont have a thread of a sense of security. It just felt as
uncomfortable as me wearing this swimsuit, standing in a crowd of boys who werent that far
away from me. But I never thought that Fang Yuke would be frank with me to the end ..Even
though I said that from now on, I would take him as a good friend, God did not need to overlook
other arrangements, right?

But, as for the charm of the present, if I didnt take a look it would be wasted. I also managed to
look quite a bit

Yup. It was indeed a masculine figure

I had to feel those pectoral muscles if I had an opportunity, to see if it really was as strong as it
looked.

I was embarrassed to comment on the part in the middle of his body, but he had everything he
should have had
His legs were very straight and slender

He could completely be an endorser for CK

I drew back the corners of my mouth into a smile. Because there was a distance between us, I
did not have to worry about being too engrossed. Haha

I quietly said to Julie: Julie, now, do you still have the mood to test early?

Julie immediately said, How can I take the exam early? I must come here every week to
toughen up and cultivate my mind.

I hoped that Fang Yuke could attract some female classmates until I learned how to swim. But I
also hoped, contradictorily, that hed better take the exam early so that I would not have to be
exposed in a crowd that gradually lessened.

After class, Julie and I finished bathing at the public baths. We planned to go to the nearby
dining hall to have a meal. We hadnt walked a few steps before I saw Fang Yuke had also
come out from the public baths. A towel even dangled from his neck. I hurriedly pulled Julie
over. Julie didnt understand the situation and looked around everywhere for any strange
circumstances. The moment she saw Fang Yuke, she pulled away from my hand and loudly
yelled at Fang Yuke: Fang Yuke

Oh, dont tell me that I didnt have a single reserved woman by my side?

Fang Yuke nodded his head to express his greeting in return. He was very aloof. Full of joy and
expectations, Julie said, Have you eaten? Do you want to eat with us? We havent had time to
thank you person about the computer class affair. What about we fix a date for today, and
today well invite you out to eat.

I promptly persuaded: He isnt used to letting girls treat, so dont court him like that. We should
still go back to the dorm quickly.

I turned my head and laughed: See you later~~

I didnt think that Fang Yuke would say: I am a little hungry now, but its a pity that I didnt bring
my food card or wallet when I went out to swim.

Julie laughed mischievously: Lets go.

It was like this that the three of us, wet and in despair, lifted a bath basket in each hand in the
winter, as we walked to the Southern entrance of Shinwong temple.
Julie hadnt even started eating before she began to become overcome with excitement. She
chattered incessantly: Fang Yuke, we have PE at the same time as you, its so coincidental.
Do you know how to swim?

Oh, who was the one who looked at him until their eyes began to become vertical lines?

Fang Yuke laughed: Im all right.

Julie asked again: If you guys know how to swim, can you take the exam early?

Fang Yuke shook his head.

Julie smiled, pleased. She turned towards me and winked. I became depressed. How could
this young lady become so excited, just like someone who had injected chicken blood [1]?

I silently drank my hot tea, not knowing what to say. The whole meal was very strange.
Throughout the time, only Julie brought up special topics and talked. Fang Yuke and I
cooperated with her and became the audience. Occasionally we would say a Right Is that
so? Of course and other things like that to deal with her.

When Julie went to the bathroom, Fang Yuke suddenly opened his mouth: So you actually
cant swim.

How did you know? I immediately asked.

Fang Yuke laughed.

It turned out that when I raised my hand to express that I had not went into the water before, he

Chapter 25- Ru Tings Birthday Party (3)
I decided that I would send Ru Ting a 79 style toy model gun, while reminding her that this was
the style her hubby liked. If she loved me, she would love my dog. She would definitely also
like it. I had settled the matter of the birthday present, so next, I would settle my formal attire. I
decided to put this matter totally in the hands of Wang Jie. She had a very unique opinion on
makeup and dressing up. Occasionally, she would even help out with fashion magazine
articles. I was absolutely not worried about her taste. It was just that a budget of 500 dollars
made it a bit difficult for her. But by means of The genuine clever wife does not have rice but
can still make a meal, I managed to beat around the bush.

The hardest thing to settle was the issue of a male companion. I pondered for a long time, and
thought through all the male classmates in my classes, so much so that I even calculated the
amount of pimples on their oily faces and their body odor, but I still was unable to find a face
that would make for great results.

I appealed to Julie for help, and she was readily delighted: I wont oppose you from
participating in Ru Tings refined scene, but do not indicate that I supported you to do so. I just
cant bear to see her act, you should all accompany her to sing.

I had to encounter someone who was ready to die to preserve his chastity

In the end, I made a decision that shocked the whole dorm, and that was my decision to
publically hang up a plate to recruit people!

First, I opened my unidentified BBS magpie bridge edition, and I began to compose a
message:

I, a dainty and delicate girl , have many hobbies. I like to read books most.

I recruited on GG: Image and temperament must be good. He must be willing to go for a
special industry and do well.

If you have sincerity, please send a picture to zhenggg@126.com

Underneath the inbox address, I sent out some information that practically only had the hazy
special mark of the back of my head, as I sent a special and hazy distant picture of myself.
When I finished writing, I let my dormmates take a look at it.

Julie glanced over it: If you dont work in marketing itll really be waste of your talent. You even
have so many hobbies but you like to read the most?

Words of surprise and shock poured from Wang Jies mouth at the other side: Are you a
scholar recruiting a poet? It just so happens that you two will be the perfect couple.

My mesage was already on the top ten topics in the forum. A pile of boring people were
enciting more boring people to apply for the special business, and the initiator of this boring
scene was me

My inbox began to explode. I immediately began to filter out messages without a photograph.
Then, I filtered out all the mesages with a photograph accompanied by a poor ten-ish line
poem that soured my teeth. Of the remaining photographs, I examined each carefully one by
one. The heavens did not turn their backs on me. I finally found a photograph that looked very
lively. His name was just like the renowned name of my dormmate. It was also Wen Tao. And
the main reason why I picked him was because of his message: In fact, Im just passing by to
buy soy sauce [1]

I immediately replied his message: Wen Tao, hello. Meeting the photograph of this
dignified gentleman, I regret not having met earlier. As the night continues endlessly, I have no
desire to sleep. What about tonight at 10, we meet at Kang Bo Si (One of the three canteens in
Peking Uni) and chat. On the other hand, please leave your cell phone number so it will be
more convenient to contact you.
When it was almost 10, I received his email: Ill permit it. The secret sign will be: I love Zhou
Xing Xing.

I fainted. Did this rascal see a cell phone as a decoration? Afterwards, wouldnt calling be
better? And he even created a secret sign.

I immediately wore a jacket and rushed to Kang Bo Si. Since I had set the time at 10, I
obviously had my own advantages. First, when it was 10, the canteen would be absolutely
empty, and it would be easy to speak and make our translation. Secondly, at 10:30, Kang Bo
Si closed, so if the transaction failed, and he was nagging me, I could borrow the canteen
closing as an excuse. I anxiously looked at my watch, 10:05. No one had appeared. Could it be
possible that I had been tricked? After I had waited for about 10 minutes, and saw that Kang
Bo Si was about to close, I lost my cool and prepared to withdraw, while inwardly cursing
myself: shit! He dared take advantage of this old lady?!

An unfamiliar sound arrived at my ear: It seems that the secret sign isnt this sentence

I lifted my head to look at him: I love Zhou Xing Xing.

He nodded: Right, you love him.

I was like a mother-in-law examining her son-in-law who had not married in yet.

I had no choice but to say that God was always stepping forward bravely in the crucial
moments, assisting me. This rascal looked very handsome (His accent almost imitated Zhao Li
Rongs accent)~~ Was that picture taken before plastic surgery? His eyelashes were long, his
nose was high. Wow, there was even a dimple on one sideI was the dimple enthusiast

But right now was not the moment to kill in the heat of the moment. I indicated that he should
sit down and reached my hand to grab his claw, exerting all my strength to shake it back and
forth: Nice to meet you, nice to meet you!

Wen Tao actually pointlessly replied: You recruited so many people, so I should be saying
nice to meet you. Thank you for picking my sole flower out of ten thousand flowers. I thought
that there would even be a small scale crowd tonight.

I stuck out my tongue. His talk was too harsh, even surpassing Fang Yuke. I laughed: Your
words are too excessive. Why would you send me a message then?

See, the interview has begun. I said, it was none of my business. I felt it would be fun, so Im
only interested in the special business.

I coughed as I laughed fakely.

Wen Tao knit his brow, and asked me: You wont really be seeking new friends through
personal ads, right?

I laughed as I replied: Of course not. But, Im afraid Ill have disappointed you, this type of
people who have come to buy soy sauce. Frankly, tomorrow I have to take part in a party. The
party requires that everyone bring a male companion.

Alas, it is very mushy and coarse. What if I dont participate?

Do you know whose party it is? Have you heard of Ru Ting? Shes the campus belle of the
foreign languages department! Even if you want to glimpse the splendor of her party, youll
have to line up to the east door of the school. The birthday party will provide an exceptionally
good opportunity for you to get to know her. Opportunity knocks only once, so how can you
give up so easily? You can just use me as a springboard as much as you like and step on me. I
dont mind.

The dimple on Wen Taos cheek moved: Then I will thank you, spring board?

Youre welcome.

Do I need to sacrifice my sex appeal to be your boyfriend?

Nope. As long as you wear something extremely eye-catching and stand with me, dont even
mention whether other people wont believe it, I wouldnt believe that yhoure my boyfriend
either. We dont have to stupid things. I watched Wen Tao wearing flat framed glasses. On the
day of March, I would wear a blouse and go out. From one glance, it would seem that I had
fooled around with the tide. It was indeed hard to match someone so plain like me.

Wen Tao turned around: I said us to you, so I guess Ill have to go. All right, Ive joined now.
Whats your name?
Im a member of the same clan as Zhou Xing Xing. Im called Zhou Lin Lin.

The name sounds too ugly. Ill call you springboard then.

F**k! Dont you know that its not okay to change someones name or alter their family name?!
You dont have any upbringing, inner quality, or courtesy.
Alas, this old woman with a big heart will let you call me that for the next few days then.

After going through a simple understanding process, Wen Tao was bigger than me by two
years, in the News College.

Because Kang Bo Si closed, and he wore a shirt as he stood on the street, chatting in the
beginning of spring, I really couldnt bear it. I exhorted him again and again with See you
tomorrow and the time and place, and I returned to my dorm.

The next day, I put on the formal attire that Wang Jie had purchased for me. Rather than call it
a small formal attire, we might as well call it mens attire. The satin of the big flowery bowtie
and the blouse was simple and black, topped with a skintight suit, and black underpants,
matched with a great red diamond belt. I stood in front of the mirror and asked Wang Jie: How
did you know I even wanted to carry a gun over my shoulder and go? This way, when I pick it
up, itll be completely neutral. I already felt that I stood on the front end of fashion.. (Flower
arranging: In the end, the second year, Li Yu Chun covered the sky and came into being)

Wang Jie looked at the effect that the clothes made on my whole body, and said dissatisfied:
Alas, your figure can only match with mens attire, but it seems as if youre still lacking
something. She smoothed the bangs on my forehead and explored my tone of voice: Lin Lin,
your character is not very great. It is not easy for long hair to ingest adequat nutrients. Why
dont you cut your hair into a short hair style?

I even thought she was talking about plastic surgery. Wasnt it just cutting some hair? When I
was little and got bubble gum stuck in my hair, my mother cut it up and finished the matter.
Thus, I energetically went to Shenmei off campus, and cut my hair into a fresh and cool hair
style. After I finished cutting, besides the fact that my head was a bit cold, it did feel more
relaxed. At least, usually I could still save on shampoo.

Before I left, Wang Jie helped me with my makeup and sighed as she asked: Lin Lin, how
could you be so squandersome? Did you do this to meet Xiao Xi?
I lowered my head and thought. I hesitatingly said, In fact, I just really wanted to learn how to
-. Maybe Ill really change from a sparrow to a phoenix.
That afternoon at 4:00, I raised my gun and went to go pick up my male companion first in
accordance with our plans. I didnt have a princesss fate, so at the most he was a stable lad.
Wen Tao arrived slowly. Because I even had to invite him to put on a play at night, he was
annoyed and sullen.

Like a scanner, Wen Tao sized me up from head to toe. In the end he said, Whats the
ornamental gun in your hand? Its pretty modern.

I unhappily rolled my eyes: This is called a 78 simulation gun. You dont know whats what!
As I said this, I sized him up back. Wen Tao looked like the Ying Lun Feng from Wang Jies
magazine: Wearing a windy hat along with an overcoat, a checked shirt, and pants that
stopped on his legs, along with ankle high leather shoes.The most eyecatching thin gwas the
navy blue scarf around his neck.

Wen Tao arrogantly looked down at me and asked: How is it? I wont lose face for you right,
springboard?

I glared at the stud earring in his right ear that was shaped like an anus and laughed: You
wont lose face, you wont lose face. You definitely have the temperament of a queen. It
matches well with my clothes today.

Queen?

Im saying that I praise of your soft and noble character. Thats the only thing I mean. I
explained. Intensely proposing that Teng Tang Jing, the queen had included many vocab
words on her dictionary Gaokao outline.

The Zhongguancun neighborhoods communications really made one dumbfounded. The taxi
hadnt went before I spotted a complicated and tricky issue like fastening a shoelace in the
other car. Half an hour had passed and we hadnt even gotten out of the Yellow district. I
anxiously told asked the driver. However, the driver was apathetic and joked: Young lady, put
the gun down. Even if I cant drive, I still have to be able to drive steadily.

On the car, I received a call from fang Yuke:

Where are you? Im waiting for you under your dorm, lets go together.

Why didnt this rascal go to help Ru Ting with her party, but was instead roaming about
underneath my dorm? I hurriedly said, I have already left, hurry up and help Ru Ting,
otherwise today, the birthday girl will be in a bad mood. Also, when youre calling for a taxi,
make sure you turn around the north side. Zhongguancun is already plugged up. While
speaking, I didnt forget to announce the traffic.

Fang Yuke sounded a bit unhappy: You went alone?

I laughed: After all, youre just pitying that I cant find a male companion, so you ran over
right? Even if you let me borrow 10 guts, I cant participate in the party with you today. Thanks
though~~I happily hung up on the phone.

Wen Tao changed into a curious baby: Who was that? Is it also someone who applied for a
job?

I waved my hand, indicating that he shouldnt think blindly. Guys were still more gossipy than
girls. I had no choice but to emphasize this point for the nth time.

When we arrived at th eparty scene, we had already been late by an hour. People went to and
fro in the hall, drinking and gambling together in a large group. It was very lively. I anxiously
seeked Ru Tings silhouette I should hurry and send the gun out, otherwise people would
think that I was a robber and report me to the police.

Finally, I saw the female lead of tonights show. Her whole body was red from her formal attire
and garments, showing off Ru Tings fair, slipper, tender skin. The unsymmetrical shape
arranged her figure so she seemed like a vivacious youth, reaching up to her black hair. On her
shoulders was a small diamond necklace that glistened and shone. Her whole body made her

seem like a maiden. I tugged at the corner of Wen taos clothes, hinting that he had some
eyecandy tonight! Ru Ting had already discovered me, and walked forward, step by step, as if
she was on the red carpet: Lin Lin, I didnt recognize you. Why did you cut your hair short!

She didnt wait for my response before, almost as if she had discovered the New World, she
said, Wen Tao, I even thought you wouldnt come! Its the blessing of three lifetimes. Your
presence brings light to my humble dwelling!

I was very out of sorts. It turned out that Wen Tao knew Ru Ting, which meant that after this,
he and I would not have any clean relationship. I even wanted to make Ru Ting the bait to lure
him over, but after all, he had thought of me as a monkey and trifled with me and I had not
known. Also, based on what reason was seeing him akin to your presence brings light to my
humble dwelling while she didnt say any nice to meet you to me! I usually didnt really
participate in birthday parties, okay

Wen Tao pointed at me and laughed: I was tricked into becoming someones male
companion.

Heavens! If I knew he would be this honest in the beginning, I might as well come single-
handedly.

Ru Ting pulled me to the side: I just saw Xiao Xi come alone. Why didnt you come with him?

I lowered my head and laughed bitterly.

Ru Ting evidently understood when she looked at my hair and said, Thats good too.
Changing a hair style, changing your mood

I became speechless as I looked up at the heavens.

Ru Ting thought she had provoked me and continued to comfort me: Dont be so despairing.
Good men are all around us. Wen tao is the sweetheart of the people. Dont take things too
hard, wearing something like this and coming. I would have thought that you gave up all hope
on romance between boys and girls..

I pondered for quite a while, before I realized that Ru Ting thought I wanted to develop as a
lesbian.

Continue with being speechless as I look up at the heavens

Chapter 26- Ru Tings Birthday Party (4)


Let us be in love!
Only when Fang Yuke arrived did I remember that I hadnt sent my gun yet.

I cleared my throat and shoved the gun into Ru Tings hands: You arent lacking anything so I
can only send you some valuable information.Fang Yuke likes guns the most, so Im going to
send you one. You can find your own matching lovers gun and send it to him, and play with it
like its a sex toy.

Ru Ting didnt have time to say thanks before she became alarmed at where she would have
to put the birthday present.

At the other side, Wen Tao became overjoyed. I didnt know if it was the phrase sex toy or the
shocking image of graceful Ru Ting holding the gun, which had provoked his laughter. By
comparison, Fang Yukes expression was solemn as he looked at my new hairstyle as if he
could not endure it.

Alas, why did he become the cold faced killer when looking at a stranger? I pulled Wen Tao
over for an introduction: Fang Yuke, this is senior classmate Wen Tao. Hes pretty eye
catching right?

Fang Yuke coldly said, Not as eye-catching as you.

Wen Tao did not regard himself as an outsider Fang Yuke, Ru Ting has talked about you so
many times, its an honor to finally meet you. He was indeed like a newscaster; he really knew
how to put on airs.

Fang Yuke politely nodded his head at him and turned his body, with a calm and collected
face, he lightly asked me how did you get to know him?

Two days ago, ever since I had contracted him as my concubine, we no longer had to speak
politely to each other. With a hehe, I brightly explained Didnt you say I would be ignored by
everyone even if I went on the Magpie bridge[1]? Look, I randomly fished up a handsome guy,
its clear that I have an excellent aura.

Fang Yuke continued to maintain his calm and collected face and he was stiffly silent. A bull-
like person was not easy to beat up, and seeing how he had been proved wrong, he could only
hang his head dejectedly.

Wen Tao came to join in the fun Whats up with this tension? Little Springboards
straightforward character is cute. Even if shes a little cunning, she can still be controlled. She
looks more valiant and formidable, especially after she cut her hair short. She has a mature
and capable flavor; shes a woman yet still a girl. After being around her for awhile, youll be
drawn in by her.

I was shocked at what he said. In my heart, I wondered how he could even spout these lies
without his face reddening and without his heart beating any faster. He was really suitable as a
newscaster. As a person implicated in this affair, I still had a bit of a guilty conscience. Even if
he wanted to console me, he had no need to exaggerate so much, it was too fake, too fake!

At the (n+1)th time of emphasis, the males gossip craziness level was much more acute than
women. Fang Yuke listened to a person talk but he didnt listen to the important parts, choosing
to nitpick on a particular gossipy point, Little Springboard?

Wen Tao intimately played with my short hair The pet name I gave her [2].

This was too big of a joke. I took a big step backwards Big brother Wen Tao, are you feeling
okay? Its clear that you just want to ignore my real name. Who knows, maybe you dont even
remember my whole name.

Look, Little Springboard wants to test me now right? Pretending to be clever?

I could take it no longer, savagely stepping on his real leather high cut boots. After listening to
his blood curdling scream, I pointed at Fang Yuke, who was on my right, turned my head
towards him and said he is Fang Yuke, a good brother of mine. Stop acting. Acting in such an
overt manner, it makes me want to puke. Havent you seen that my brothers face is turning so
pale? Luckily you are only studying in the news department. Forget it since you only read a
little bit of the fake news, but if you continue this act, wouldnt you be lying to these common
and innocent people?

Who is a common and innocent person? Fang Yuke interrupted me unsatisfactorily.

Hey, why did he always ignore the important points when speaking.

I didnt want to care about them anymore. If I continued to deal with this, I would end up with a
nervous breakdown.

The me, whose stomach rumbled with hunger, searched for food at the buffet table in the hall.
The feast at this birthday really set up very late, if it was the previous year, I would have swept
the food clean off the plates without thinking twice. It was just that my stomach shrunk a lot this
year and I was full after eating only a bit of snacks.

I stuffed a piece of cookie into my mouth, turned my body and bumped into Xiao Xi.

My brain went completely blank. It was as if someone had suddenly prodded a sensitive place
in my heart, I kind of was at a complete loss, and could only stupidly bite my biscuit and reply
unclearly hey, long time no see~~

Xiao Xi smiled warmly Long time no see.

I did not know what to say next, and could only exchange a few sentences to exchange
greetings in a bashful manner, invariably taciturn. The me who was always expressive and
cheerful also had to pray for heaven to bring all the people who were talking to gather in the
places around me.

Wen Tao saw my weird appearance, he immediately sniffed out some newsworthy material,
carrying his wine glass over, he asked whats up?

As if grasping on to a life saver, I quickly told Xiao Xi his name is Wen Tao, my male partner.

Wen Tao specially acted accordingly, raising his head and saying unexpectedly Springboard
and I met only yesterday

Xiao Xis face went completely blank.

Wen Tao added on you also feel as if the name Springboard is very weird? Springboard isnt
the pet name that I gave her, its because I didnt properly remember her full name.
Furthermore, she used a pretty picture as bait to con me into coming here. This is why I call
her a springboard that is played around by a pretty woman, shortened to become Springboard.

I was enraged, desiring strongly to step on his foot. How could this person be completely able
to discern situations?

Xiao Xi pretty much understood the situation ( how much I wished that he didnt fully
understand the situation), and said to me while smiling still as bizarre as ever?

My face was a little bit red. I didnt know whether this sentence was sarcastic, rebuking me or
praising me.

Xiao Xi took some deserts and said to me you look nice with short hair. After saying this, he
took his plate and went somewhere else.

My heart started to beat very fast and I could not move for a long time. I felt like I had to keep
this hairstyle forever.

Wen Tao poked my head lightly you like him?

I was still not in the right state of mind so I ignored him.

Wen Tao continued to gossip but, he doesnt like you

I continued to ignore him; I still bore a grudge towards his attitude just now.

Wen Tao clung to his analysis but you still like him

I stared at him coldly why were you so honest just now? When you speak you are able to
pretend so well, didnt I ask you to come to act? Why are you no longer acting?

Wen Tao refused to concede I thought you said I wasnt suitable for acting? I only went back
to my original self.

I was unable to retort, huffily biting down on my biscuit. This asshole purposely wanted to take
revenge, I had seen through it.

Wen Tao saw that I wasnt speaking, and talked about the subject of Xiao Xi. hey, to get stuck
in love requires much dedication. According to Buddha, having a passion for love is similar to
grasping a torch, youre going against the wind and you need a heated hand to suffer. Its
better for you to withdraw early on.

I was still angry sorry, please speak plainly. I only understand one saying from Buddha.

Wen Tao curiously asked which one?

I testily replied Amitabha, excellent excellent

Wen Tao laughed with a Haha, Little Springboard, youre really cute. No wonder he likes you.
Hehe, what a competitive character!

The sound of Went Taos laughter drew Ru Ting and Fang Yuke over.

Ru Ting cutely and helplessly stood by Fang Yukes side; she blinked her big eyes and asked,
Wen Tao, what happened that has made you so happy?

Wen Tao waved his hand and asked me Springboard, how did you test into Beijing University?
Too amusing

Actually, I also wanted to know the reason. I dejectedly said its fine for you to just look at me
as a joke. Hey, after studying for more than 10 years, I still feel that kindergarten is the best to
be in.

Ru Ting smiled charmingly Linlin, you really are our happy fruit [3]

I sighed and said Ru Ting, the phrase happy fruit is for the raging Iron Ling Huang Ma to use,
its not suitable for you to say. However, today the birthday girl is king, so Ill just let you use it
today

Ru Ting agreeably said Wen Tao, see how cute Linlin is? How did you get to know each
other? I advise you to move quickly or else you will regret it~~ After saying this, she winked
charmingly.

I was extremely grateful to Ru Ting, she would eternally be more eager to marry me off than
my mother. Speaking about it, pretty women normally felt it beneath them to play matchmaker,
I had no idea why Ru Ting had this hobby, marketing me in such a blatant way, making me
incomparably embarrassed. I couldnt even hypocritically say how am I cute, youre
exaggerating (while secretly thinking that I am indeed very cute, keke). Otherwise, I could
honestly and firmly say you better not make a move, or else Ill take issue with you as if I was
some chaste woman.

Wen Tao laughed as he asked me Springboard, why did you choose me? Did you fall in love
at first sight when you saw my profile, failing to control yourself and ended up acting on
impulse? What did you say in your email? I regret not meeting you earlier, I cant sleep at
night

I think that Wen Tao would have to give his shoes a thorough waxing when he got home that
night. I said through clenched teeth yes, if I dont break it off with you, I wont be able to sleep
tonight.

Wen Tao did not take offense and said writing a love letter was the beginning of our
exchange. I like it.

Who wrote you a love letter? Who had exchanges with you?

Big brother, I recently dieted and my diet was quite extreme, dont make me puke okay?

Wen Tao continued to shamelessly say, then you should eat more tonight in order to have
energy to lose weight.

I suddenly exploded, dont think Im easy to bully just because I dont study Buddhas
scriptures. Confucius says, use a brick to beat a person, apparently hitting his face, apparently
throwing him into disarray; if its not enough then hit until its enough, hit until hes close to
death, if you hit him until hes dead you dont have to hit him anymore. Not dying makes you a
hero. Do you want to see how Ill use a brick, in accordance with Confucius technique to test it
out?

Comrade Wen Tao didnt say anything anymore. He was probably intimidated by my
expression of anger. It was better to reflect over the deep meaning in Confucius saying
instead.

It was Fang Yukes turn to joke leisurely, So how now? Love at first sight, secondly,
experience it waning and, third, let it finally be exhausted. Take care of yourself, brother.

I suspected that Wen Tao had too much to drink, because after his moment of silence, he said
a sentence that make me want to vomit blood: lets date.

[1] It is the bridge where the 2 lovers, Niulang Zhinu (From a previous footnote) are allowed
an annual meeting
[2] More a term of endearment than a derogatory name
[3] The raws here is , which is a pistachio nut but directly translates to happy fruit

Chapter 27- Ru Tings Birthday Party (5)


Out of all my 20 years, this was the first time that someone confessed his love to me. It was
okay for the other party to be willful or to be insincere, but I was still a dainty and delicate girl
whose face blushed for a moment. Out of the corner of my eye, I saw a passerby with a
curious and envious expression. It was almost as if my whole life had been satisfied. I
contentedly said to him: If you can call me by my full name, we dont need to talk about love.
We can even go straight to marriage.

At this time, Wen Tao resumed his pestering state of a hoodlum: A name is nothing more than
a representation. If worst comes to worst, Ill begin to get acquainted with you right now. You
may accept my special interview. First question: What is your hobby? I think you said you like
to read in your forum post.

I could not allow this dear friend to continue on the path of mistakes for too long. Just because
I was a manipulator, didnt mean that I would welcome their attitude. At the moment, Wen Tao
seemed like he had come across some interesting prey in the bar, and prepared to pursue a
one night stand. Despite the fact that I could not understand what my body, appearance, and
tomboy disposition could have possibly enticed his passion, this could only mean that he really
did have some potential of being gay. I avoided his question: I am not learned at any of the
four arts [1]. I even tire of laundry and cooking. Basically, I am a useless person.

Fleeting Midsummer (Peking Universitys Weakest Student)
Wen Tao laughed: Whoever I fancy doesnt have to be accomplished at the four arts. I will
take care of these.

Sure enough, he had drank too much wine. I decided to ferociously feed him a dose of some
medicine: I have Cs in all my classes, and on my chest, there is a pair of As [2]. You better
think over it carefully. Speaking honestly, ever since I had slimmed down this year, they had
grown from little clay buns to almost razing the ground, so much so that I even worried if they
would begin to grow downwards.

Wen Tao produced a clear and bright laugh, as his chrysanthemum stud earring glistened in
the light: I still do mind a bit about this. Thus, you better think of a way to resolve the issue,
otherwise I can only try to put up with it myself.

You assh*le, youre really cruel! I was racking my brains to think of a retort when Fang Yuke
suddenly fiercely grabbed my hand and headed outside the living room, leaving behind a Ru
Ting who appeared completely at a loss and Wen Tao, whose eyes flashed a trace of meaning.

There was a courtyard with a garden outside the living room. It was really cold as the Southern
part of China was experiencing endless spring raina at this moment, while the Western part
was extremely bleak, as if it had been completely encapsulated in ice. Julie said that the Spring
season in the Western part of China was short and irregular and that it would always quickly
disappear to be replaced with Summer.

It was on this freezing night that my hand was firmly held in the palm of Fang Yukes warm
hand.

I felt a little bit strange, Fang Yuke, dont you think that the position were in right now is a little
ambiguous?

Fang Yuke reprimanded me loudly, Has your mind only just became excessively sensitive
now? You didnt think that you were in an ambiguous situation just now?

Fang Yuke was really raising a fuss over nothing. How could he not have seen that I was
staunchly fighting for justice by refusing to answer all his questions? I had put in so much
thought to refuse his enticements, yet he said that I was in an ambiguous situation. I threw off
his hand, Dont think that just because my mother told you to take care of me that you can
control me. If my mother knew that a hot guy confessed to me today, she might even forget
herself in happiness. Since we have such a good relationship, I still thought you wanted to
congratulate me for finally casting off the status of being single.

Fang Yuke sat on the swing in the garden. Under the moonlight, his eyes revealed a kind of
indistinct moodiness.

He looked at me with his thick eyelashes that, under the moonlight, appeared to be coated with
a layer of honey, How good is our relationship?

This sentence was clearly said to make himself an outsider. How could this jerk get caught up
in this kind of an endless and unquantifiable situation? I could only say, You gifted me a pair of
pants, shoes and whatnot. Of course our relationship is good.

Fleeting Midsummer (Peking Universitys Weakest Student)
Fang Yuke laughed bitterly, Just this is enough to prove that we have a good relationship?

Of course, until now, nobody has ever gifted me anything. Furthermore, you have already
seen me in a bikini, which I dont care about. Ive also almost seen through you completely. So
our relationship is of the highest level. In order to prove our close relationship, I used the most
mushy forms of evidence.

Fang Yuke finally laughed from the bottom of his heart. After laughing, he said softly, Linlin, if
there was a day that someone told you that we should date or something like that, would you
act the same as just now?

I shook my head, I dont know. I feel like I should have my encounter with love but I dont want
to love just for the sake of it. I havent reached such a tragic state yet. Looking at Wen Tao
doesnt even make my heart jump one beat while looking at Xiao Xi is completely different. Ah,
finding someone who loves you back is a very difficult thing. Especially towards someone like
me who has neither unique points nor strengths

Fang Yuke interrupted me, Youre really good, dont always compare yourself to others. From
the beginning, liking someone has been an illogical thing. It has nothing to do with unique
points or strengths. Besides, your uniqueness cannot be concealed even if you wanted to.
This was the first time that Fang Yuke had ever praised me. He must have definitely forgotten
the way in which he berated me the first time we ever met. It was a pity that I still remembered.

However, I believe that my eyes at this moment reflected some greed, what unique points,
what unique points, tell me quickly. My biggest unique point is that I have no unique points.
When my primary school teachers have to write the end of year evaluations for me, they really
have to rack their brains but are lazy in the end and always copy whatever the previous
teacher has written for me. Finally, at the end of 6 years my evaluations are all astonishingly
similar

Fang Yuke laughed, You see, you are always able to come up with things that are not good,
thats your unique point. Didnt you always use to say such bold and visionary words that
people would be enchanted by you upon meeting you, and that flowers would bloom as they
encountered you? It is better for you to delude yourself into thinking you are a fresh flower.

I pouted, Saying it myself and being praised by others are two different things. Im someone
who is very aware that if I was a fresh flower, all the bulls in this world would no longer dare to
shit. Ah, the degree of which I was putting myself down would waver between the degree of
which I acted extremely arrogant.

Fang Yuke raised his head and looked at the full moon in the sky and said something quite
incomprehensible, It would have been good if we had a Full moon last year when we were
playing with fireworks. Dont they say that the Full moon is able to understand my heart? It
would definitely be able to understand how earnest I was when I spoke those few sentences
towards the sky. (flower arranging: those who have forgotten this, like Lin Lin, read chapter
20)

I suddenly could not recall what he said when he yelled at me just now I could only say
impromptu, Ill give it to you for being a really outstanding student, youve never even heard of

the famous part that comes after this. Seeing a full moon on the last day of Chinese New year
is really wishful thinking.

Fang Yukes black pupils were so dense and deep. He sighed softly and said, Really? It was
getting even more melancholic when Ru Ting, wearing flimsy and thin clothing appeared at the
garden. Close on her heels was the one who had more money than sense, my Wen Tao.

Ru Ting anxiously asked Fang Yuke, whats up with you two?

I pretended to shake my head lightly, Nothing, nothing. Actually, I wanted to say that he was
on his period. The male lead of today dragged me out here; I washed myself in the Yellow
River and I would never be able to wash myself clean. Luckily, Wen Tao had already made me
jump into the Yellow River so this small thing wasnt too big a deal.

Wen Tao looked as if he was enjoying the bathe in the yellow river, Springboard, how about a
glass of good grape wine in a cup of phosphorescent jade amidst flowers in the moonlight, lets
relax. Why dont we enjoy a cup? I felt that all the goosebumps on my body were standing up.
Was it that those who came into contact with Wen Tao did not care about how fashionable his
clothes were. Others could smell a sour smell. A good scenario had been destroyed because
he had spit out such a sour sentence. If he had said, the color of the sky is not bad today, let
us roast some chicken wings. I would have been deeply touched.

I replied him with one sentence Big sister is not someone who draws tattoos on the TianQiao
bridge [3], I cant believe you would say this kind of disgusting things.
Wen Tao smiled, I promise you, in the future when Im in front of Springboard, I will definitely
speak carefully and tread cautiously so that she will slowly fall in love with me. I swear in front
of the moon.

People would normally start brimming with tears, when they heard this kind of an oath. I wasnt
a commoner so of course I would definitely be moved somewhat. Especially since it was such
a hazy night, the trees softly dancing. The situation now was such that all impurities were being
filtered out, leaving behind only the bright contemplates of the heart.

It was just a pity that Wen Taos earring was reflecting too much of the moonlight, causing me
to face him to make things clear, Big brother Wen Tao, we have only known each other for a
day. I dont have an ounce of deep feelings for you. Yesterday you couldnt wait to ride all over
my head and were incomparably haughty. Now youve suddenly changed 180 degrees, who
wouldnt know that theres a problem. Even if Ive never eat pork, Ive seen a pig run. You
shouldnt bully an inexperienced small girl [4] like me, ah. Whatever ambitions you have, just
say it candidly.

Wen Tao smiled, Little Springboard, how could you be so self-unaware? Whats the point of
using such weird logic when youre chasing someone that you like? Liking means liking. Just
now when you were behaving all silly in front of someone that you liked, why didnt you work
your brain to think of the reason why you like him? If I really wanted to say what I was
pursuing, then Im pursuing you.

I wasnt sure if it was because he specialised in studying how to reason that he had such a glib
tongue. Wasnt it because he already knew how to speak so eloquently that he was able to be
such a strong willed person.

When Wen Tao saw that I wasnt saying anything, he continued on, The night is ending soon.
Ru Ting, you should deal with the remaining guests together with Fang Yuke and rest early.
Springboard and I will go head back first.

I squinted at him. With what eyes did you use to see that I wanted to go back? This night, I had
only eaten some biscuits and hadnt gone back.
Fang Yuke said to me, Ill send you home.

Ru Ting pulled on Fang Yukes shirt sleeve, intentionally indicating to him about our presence
with her eyes, meaning that she didnt want him to be a lightbulb and ruin the lovers
rendezvous between me and Wen Tao. However, I knew Ru Tings real underlying meaning
was that she didnt want me to steal her lover where Fang Yuke would throw her aside to send
me home.

I said immediately, I dont need you to send me. Its okay for just me and Wen Tao to go. Look
at how hes all dressed up in an American style, no matter what hes still a gentleman. I should
sacrifice myself to let him show off a bit.

Wen Tao arrogantly smiled sinisterly, in contrast with Fang Yukes exceptionally gloomy
expression.

When we were on the rented car, Wen Tao unrestrainedly asked, Springboard, have you ever
felt like Fang Yuke likes you?

I felt like the job of a newscaster was very burdensome, especially for people who were close
to paparazzis like Wen Tao. I raised the car window and asked him, Can you say some more
high quality words? Are you always like this? You really have so much time to waste
everyday.

Wen Tao smiled, I just like to waste time in front of someone who has really piqued my
interested. Before this, I rarely participate in this kind of parties, Im afraid of social
interactions.

Youre afraid of social interactions? Today, you interacted until I wanted to cry. You were
really not virtuous upon meeting people. I lamented.

Wen Tao said, You really dont feel that anything is off about Fang Yuke?

I couldnt be bothered with him.

Wen Tao started to talk to himself, People really only see what they want to see. Its fine if Ru
Ting pretends not to see it, but you also cannot see it. In the past, when I heard Ru Ting talk
about how outstanding and great Fang Yuke was, I was filled with expectations. I never
thought that this kind of guy didnt have a single ounce of courage.

I suspiciously turned my head towards Wen Tao who was a Cassiopeian. Could it be. You
like Fang Yuke? And right now Im the female lead who is stuck in the middle of your BL (Boys
Love), and I cant even escape the wool that youre trying to pull over my eyes? This time I
would forever be stuck in the position of the second female lead.

Wen Tao let out a sigh, Little Springboard, it is with much difficulty that you are finally using
your brain, can you please use it for things that are actually realistic?

I pouted, Its because you are abnormal, ah. Fang Yu Ku suddenly wants me to explain how
deep our relationship is with each other and you suddenly bombarded my brain with this
information. From the beginning, my brain is not good to use.

Wen Tao exploited the opportunity to say, Feelings dont bombard the brain, they bombard the
heart. If your heart is in disarray, no matter how hard your brain tries, it cant fight it.

Chapter 28- Disfigured (1)


The weather became warm day by day, just as the shivering at the swimming pool classes
decreased gradually. Many classmates that could not swim before could already swim two laps
in the swimming lane. As for me, who was naturally afraid of water, I flopped around in the
water for quite a while. When I stood up, I realized that I still remained stubbornly in place. I
hadnt even swam for a meter! The sterilized water that I had swallowed into my stomach had
been drunk in vain yet again. Every time Julie watched me swim, she would get incomparably
depressed: Even if youre really a lump in water, you should still be able to move . Then, she
would conveniently submerge herself in the water to watch Fang Yuke swim by. This scum!

I was worrying about my swimming technique, which wasnt allowing me to move anywhere,
when unexpectedly, something more worrying occurred.

After four months of swimming lessons, my whole body became so itchy that it became difficult
to tolerate it. At the start, I hadnt minded it much. I thought that it was just some pollen allergy.
At this time and season, the pollen fell down like snow. Originally, I felt it was romantic,
probably because Winter Love Song had become super popular lately. The typical scenario
of the male and female leads who would cuddle together in the midst of the great snow that
swirled in the air hadnt even ended yet. I walked two times underneath a willow, trying
especially hard to pursue a goal stubbornly. After I had finished, I would become The White
Haired Girl because cotton had fallen all over my head.

But after I woke up the next day, there were countless dots of different sizes and shapes all
across my face and body. They looked like the dots on Buddhas forehead and they had been
spread everywhere below my hairline. When I looked into the mirror, in my heart, I thought I
was finished. I was disfigured even before I had done any plastic surgery.

Julie awoke early in the morning and looked at me hazily and she was so shocked that she
screamed. After that, the other two were woken up and simultaneously came over and stood in
a circle to look at my new appearance.

These people whose hearts was full of uselessness, only said one sentence after having their
fill of watching me: It looks like you have to depend on something like the Safflower Oil
medication in order to cure this, or you could also go to the hospital to take a look.

Hence, the group of us rushed towards Haidian Hospital, which was the nearest to the school,
so fast as if we were robbing a bank. The schools clinic was often called Entering Heaven.
Even if I died, I would never risk my honor and glory.

The skin doctor put on his gloves and pinched the bumps on my leg and asked, Is the place
you live in clean?

Out of the four of us, none of us dared to speak because we were all too awkward to answer.

I could only stiffen my neck and say, Anyway its no problem for people to live in.

The doctor continued to ask, Do you have any feelings of nausea?

When Julie heard this, she quickly pricked up her ears. I knew that it was just because she was
interested in things that appeared to hint at pregnancy.

I shook my head.

The doctor asked a few more simple questions before deciding that that I had an acute case of
hives. He prescribed me some medication before allowing me to go home. Luckily, this illness
was not contagious. If it was quick, I would recover in 2 weeks. It was just that within these 2
weeks, I would have to suffer from itchiness that I could not scratch. This was a torment for me.

In the dormitory, I would rub the back of my body, like Sun Wu Kong [1], grope my butt or
douse myself in cold water. Peking University just stopped providing heat and the dormitories
were still a bit cold. When dousing myself in cold water, on one hand I was able to stop the
itch, but on the other hand I was unbearably frozen by the cold water. The dormitory would,
thus, be constantly filled with cries of, Wa, how comfortable AH, I cant do it anymore.
The other 3 couldnt bear this anymore, and they left the scene one by one. Julie complained,
The biggest grievance of a persons life is never watching a pornographic movie before being
forced by others to watch. If you have been forced, then fine but you even have to be subjected
to your friends complaints that you did not invite them to watch it with you! The Injustice to Dou
E [2] will even come back from the grave!

Normally, we would leave it to those 3 to do those basic chores like buying food or cleaning up.
But you still had to go for classes, and you still had to go out. The days in April were neither
cold nor hot. It was a good time to wear whatever you wanted. If I wrapped myself into a
bundle with a headscarf and veil, I would definitely attract some peoples attention. Especially
if you were not those tall and beautiful women with their bright sparkly eyes, who grew up in
the Middle East. To say nothing of the fact that Beijings sandstorms had pretty much died
down

As such,with the hippy cap on my head, wearing black sunglasses and a surgical mask, as if I
was a superstar trying to avoid everybody, I left the house.

As I had just left the house, I saw Fang Yuke come out from the dormitory lobby opposite mine.
However, he did not notice me at all and simply brushed past me along with the other people. I
had a sinister smile as I unexplicably stalked him from behind.

After walking a few steps, Fan Yuke stopped to tie his shoelace; I also unknowingly stopped.
After tying his shoelaces, he stood up and turned around, walking in front of me, Why are you
sneaking around?

I laughed mischievously but it was a pity that my mask covered my smile, What do you mean
Im sneaking around? You dont own this stretch of road, cant other people walk down it?

Fang Yuke looked me up and down, You certainly look well, why are you dressed up as if
youre a terrorist?
Hey, this is my superstar disguise, how does this look like a terrorist outfit.

I was just going to retort when the bumps on my leg started to get unbearably itchy. I couldnt
help but stoop down and start to rub against my skirt. Luckily, I was wearing a mask, if not my
ugly face would definitely scare a few people.

I couldnt stand it anymore, I could only form a plan to escape for the time behind, I have
something that I have to do back at the dormitory, lets talk when we get back.

Fang Yuke stubbornly held on to me without letting go, Whats wrong with you? Are you not
feeling well?

Actually I really wanted to pull down my mask to give him a fright, just like the Stephen Chow
movie where Ru Hua [3] turned around. It would definitely be super funny. However, I didnt
want to make myself ugly just for the sake of comedic effect and could only repress these
weird ideas.

Just as I prepared to excuse myself by saying that I had a stomach ache and needed to go
back to the dormitory to pee, a suited-up Wen Tao appeared in front of my eyes.

Ever since the birthday party, Wen Tao would chat with me on the internet about pointless
things. Sometimes he would invite me out to eat but I would always reject him. However, after
talking for these 2 months, I realized that he wasnt as frivolous as I had thought. He just had a
glib tongue on some special occasions. These special occasions also depended on his mood.

These few days he was also busy with some large debate situation. I was also happy to be
free.

If it wasnt Fang Yuke who was standing beside me, I believe that Wen Tao would definitely
never recognize the me who was armed to the teeth.

Wen Tao turned my cap, Springboard, are you participating in some cosplay event?

My whole body was itchy now. I rubbed my arm, You are also participating? You look like a
human-dog [4].

Wen Tao smiled and revealed his two dimples, which fit his formal style today, he was very
calm and really looked like a young worker at the office.

I began to put my hand behind to scratch my back, You two should go do your own thing, Im
going off.

Fang Yuke pulled me over, Do you have lice? Ive watched you scratch nonstop.

This sentence was too offensive, as if a medical problem had suddenly become a problem of
personal hygiene. I knew that Fang Yuke was obsessed with cleanliness and purposely said, I
have countless lice on my body, you better stay further away from me, if not all the pretty girls
will stay far away from you next time.

The two of them gave me a disdaining look. Wen Tao took advantage of the opening when I
wasnt paying attention and removed my mask. This completely exposed all the red bumps on
my face under the full light of day.

Like those women on television who had their faces splashed with acid, I screamed AHHHH

The two of them were dumbfounded. I knew that whoever looked at a face that was covered in
Buddhas dots would be dumbfounded. Especially for someone like me who, from the
beginning, never had a single redeeming quality; it would really be a waste for me to not
appear in one of those ghost movies.

Fang Yuke used his finger to poke at the bumps on my face in order to ascertain that those
bumps were really growing on my skin and not that I had mischievously glued them on. He
then immediately insisted that I had to go to the doctor.

At one end, Wen Tao joked, What happened Springboard? Youve been disfigured to this
extent so you have no choice but to stick with me now. Others wont want you anymore.

I fantasized about whether or not the disgusting bumps on my body would fall off of my body
due to mortification from Wen Taos mocking.

Fang Yuke said to Wen Tao angrily, How do you have so much time to mock and ridicule right
now? Go about your own business.

Although I felt that each of Fang Yukes words were really priceless pearls, I was an advocator
of peace and did not wish for them to become enemies on my account. I could only smooth
things over, Wen Tao, you should go on ahead or else Ill rub all these bumps on your clothes.
Whatever brand it is, the material is definitely one fit for work, its definitely not cheap.

Wen Tao didnt mind as he said, Go ahead and rub, its hard to use money to bring a smile to
a lady, as long as youre happy its fine.

At this point, I had no ability to make peaceful talks anymore, and could only exercise a bit of
strength to fiercely leave a footprint on his trouser leg. After that, I pulled Fang Yuke and madly
dashed away.

When we stopped, my whole body was not itchy anymore. Fang Yuke still stared at my
completely exposed face and asked, Have you put your medication yet?

I laughed, Fang Yuke, you really are like a young married woman. I remember Wen Tao still
said before that you liked me. If it wasnt for the fact that we knew each other well, I would
really believe it. You shouldnt treat everyone this nicely, be careful or youll unknowingly
captivate the hearts of young women. At that point, you wont be able to reap a single peach
blossom tree.

Even if there were ten thousand peach blossoms, I would only pick one.

Under the bright mood when people became a couple, when the warm heat from the dense
coffee or under the candlelight where you would do palm reading and talk about about life,
contemplating the nonsense that is inseparable from life, one could still be moved. Especially
for women like us who had not yet gone through our life opening ceremonies, we would
definitely pursue justice, plunging headfirst, without looking back. However, if one was at a
place beside a stinking toilet or standing beside trash with mosquitoes and flies all around
while saying these words, then we would remain much more rational and cool headed.

As such, listening to Fang Yukes emotional words coupled with the fact that I knew the face in
his mind was Ru Tings, even though he was able to convince me who had this oily face, he
was still able to say these kind of words that shocked me till I was burnt on the inside but soft
on the outside. To say nothing of the fact that his eyes reflected his tender feelings.

I put on my mask once again, Fang Yuke, you are really a lovesick person. Its just that you
have to pick an appropriate situation and person to say it to. You doing this really hurts me. Ive
been disfigured to this point, how would I even bloom a peach blossom to confuse you. Its
unknown whether Ill even be able to produce a single bud.

In the night time I was thinking through whether I should put on a facial mask and try it, when
Wen Tao called.

I hadnt replied yes or no, before he hung up.

F**k, I was still a patient in any case. Dont you know how to take care of a patients state of
mind?!

I wore my mask and immediately went downstairs. I was afraid that he would wait too long in
front of our dorm , and meet some roommate.

Wen Tao had already changed into a loose T-shirt, as well as loose fitting pants. He appeared
very indolent, and laid-back.

I complained to him: Why did you hang up on my phone? What if I didnt come downstairs?

Wen Tao pretended he had been treated unjustly and yelled: When did I hang up on you? It
was you who became so happy that I called you that you couldnt stop smiling and repeatedly
pressed on the hang up button.
My head wasnt dumb. This kind of a person who immediately turned to scold other people
boldly made me most mad! My head was only a little bloated at the most, okay?

Wen Tao smiled mischievously: Springboard, lets go on a date.

In my impressions, besides this afternoons chance encounter,the last time I had met him was
at the birthday party. After a whole month, how could I still have these types of thoughts?

I took off my mask: Has anyone told you that you have a masochistic tendency? Look at this
face full of chafing. Do you have an urge to kiss it?

Wen Tao said, Why did your thoughts get so far away? I only mentioned a date. Who wants to
kiss you now?

Then why would you say such a sensitive word like date? Dates are only limited to boyfriends
and girlfriends. I fumed, feeling that I had been trolled again.

Wen Tao took a mask and put it on and said, Leave.

I hastily asked: Why are you wearing a mask? Do you have aphthous fever? Where should I
go at this time of night? Im not going anywhere.

One person wearing a mask is so lonely. I am gathering more people for you and
accompanying you. Wen Tao lazily replied, Ill bring you somewhere to dispel your cares.
Arent you afraid youll mold from staying in the house all day? Right now, even if you stripped
naked and stood in front of me, I wouldnt be interested. What are you afraid of? If theres
someone that should be afraid, it should be me.
Unable to restrain my anger, I said, Who is about to strip naked in front of you? Dont think
that your love is reciprocated.

Wen Tao laughed and gestured with his hand: Dont give me any jaw (translation: Dont
chatter away anymore) I was dragged away by Wen Tao when we stopped at a place not far
from the dorm. I was still resentful that he had given me English. The main point was that I had
not yet understood it: Why are you so unpatriotic? If you dont have anything to do, why would
you speak in English?

Wen Tao said, If you speak German, are you loving your country? Plus, when have you been
patriotic?

I looked down: When domestic goods are discounted..

The outside air was definitely fresher than the dorm. I spread my arms, and breathed in
deeply..

Wen Tao said at the other side: Springboard, why dont you like me?

Here we go again. Wen Tao was best at saying vague words related to love and feelings over
and over again at any time. If he didnt say it, it would be as like the atmosphere was suffering.

I answered his question with a question: What is most important to you?

Wen Tao replied: Affection, love, schoolwork, and my future job.

Why do you not think the air is the most important? Every moment you live on this planet, you
have never left it.

Wen Tao seemed a little unclear on the circumstances.

I continued: Wen Tao, many people have many affairs. To us, they are all very important. But
not everyone will be engraved in our memories. If you think that I am a very important figure in
your life, I hope that I can be like air, and that I may be occasionally mentioned, but it is
unnecessary to be constantly remembering me or hanging me [from a thread].

Wen Tao sadly looked at my eyes: Which novel is this from? Youre not suited to say such
profound words.

I forced a laugh: Why is it that every time I want to laugh heartily, the grandfathers sister role
in a comedy will appear? Plays that are staged always make these characters supporting
characters. The moment I was born, I suffered from all the motherlands flowers education
system. After I grew up, I want to learn how to be an actor who plays supporting roles, on the
contrary. Only when I am depressed for a moment, can I break away from the female who
always has to try to fit in.

Wen Tao laughed and said, The example you just used shows that youre very greedy. You
compared yourself to air, to make it so that without you, I cant live on. If you think like this,
then just say it. I wont refuse anyone.

I wanted to protest coquettishly, but I really wasnt that type of person. I could only coarsely
and angrily say: Love yourself, all right~~

Wen Tao earnestly said, Zhou Lin Lin, I hope that one day you can still see your thoughts so
clearly. Otherwise, I will take advantage of this void and enter.

I laughed: Because I have never had any notions. Of course, it is easy to see through it all.
Whoever is the same as you, a belly full of evil tricks, and who always spoils me (TL: In a bad
way) until I dont even know what I want.

Wen Tao wanted to argue when Fang Yuke brought out a bag of medicine in front of us.
Enemies inevitably clash on a narrow road. The gunpowder scent from the two of them hadnt
been scattered yet.
Right now, they were once about to meet again. This time, Yuke was extremely quiet. After he
gave the medicine to me, he quietly persuaded me: Remember to apply medicine when he
walked back to his dorm.

Wen Tao wasnt afraid of inconveniences when he sought him, but he was only afraid of
annoying insufficient great people. He sneered: Complaining woman.

Fang Yuke turned, and blue veins that popped out on his forehead could clearly be seen due to
his resentfulness from under the street light.

Wen Tao poured oil onto the fire: To what woman is this man flinging an expression of a
blamed woman? If you have the skill, then come fight for it yourself. Dont pretend that
everyone owes you something. If youre weak, then just admit it. Why do you even have to
pretend that youve been wronged?

I thought that Wen Tao was a bit excessive. Originally, we were perfectly all right and nothing
had happened but he just had to pull some things over to quarrel about. Fang Yuke looked a
little delicate and pretty but how could he sink down into the state of a blamed woman? Plus,
when the two of them had just gotten acquainted, didnt Wen Tao have a lot of poise?

Fang Yukes voice was very soft, but they were powerful and resonating: Many things cannot
rely on recklessness and thus be completed. The passion in a moment can only descend into
ashes earlier. Also, please do not assess other people carelessly, especially people youve
only known for two months. Based on what are you allowed to judge the feelings Ive had for
15 years? Do you think that if you have a little specialized knowledge, you can observe other
peoples capabilities, and thus understand her completely? You are absolutely only divulging
your feelings, hardly not taking into consideration the feeling of the audience. Will you bring
about more complications for her? In the end, you are only a selfish person.

Wen Tao applauded: You finally said it.Havent you been stifled to the utmost? You say that
Im selfish, and I wont deny it. However, for the feelings route, how are you selfless? You said
your feelings for fifteen years are deep and warm, but the way youve sucked them back into
your stomach just makes them equivalent to nothing.
Fang Yuke coldly laughed: I have made you worry about my matters.
I took advantage of this silent moment to ask: These two debaters, may I take the liberty of
interrupting for a moment. Does what youre talking about have anything to do with me?
At this, Fang Yuke and Wen Tao spoke in unison: It doesnt concern you!

When I returned to the dorm, I began to remember their conversation. The two of them had
quarrelled, as it continued intensifying, and as a veteran and staff member of gossip, I had
actually not understood it. I could only wring my hands and sigh at my high skill that was not as
good as the past. The so called curious heart had killed cats. I slowly sat down on top of a bed,
meditating and analyzing: When a dispute had arisen between the two men, if it wasnt
economic benefits, it was probably interpersonal relationships. The former was impossible

which meant that it was the latter. From my intuition, this matter seemed to have something to
do with me. Fang Yuke couldnt have been talking about knowing Wen Tao when he said that
he hadnt known her for two months, right? I had known Wen Tao for exactly a month. But,
then what did this 15 years mean? I analyzed it, and deduced two possibilities.

First possibility: Fighting and scheming, two faced version of Wen Tao: Fang Yuke has known
a first love that has spanned for fifteen years, and it was also the Ru Ting that Wen Tao set his
eyes on. Maybe, before the birthday party, he had just known Ru Ting, and drooled at her good
looks. When he saw my invitation, evilness was born, and he made use of my male companion
identity to sneak into the party, and merge as he created a diversion and said he liked me, to
make Ru Ting relax her vigilance, and to approach her more easily. Fang Yuke could not
convey his pleasure, and had never confessed up to now. He had only used his proximity to
obtain favor, and up to now, he had not made her and him an item, which made Wen Tao look
down on him on the spot. Ultimately, the two people drew their daggers, as the male wanderer
lifted his head towards a reign of terror.

Second possibility: BL dominant strong sufferer version. Ru Ting and I were reduced to their
provoking tools. They only sounded out the other persons bottom line, while betraying and
hating each other, when emotions were really the things that were fighting. The male
wanderers of the Jianghu [1] still lifted their heads to a battle that would incur a reign of terror.
Ultimately, the conclusion was whoever OOXX [2] the other person by force. As for who was
really whos XX, and who was whos OO, that would be worthy of research.

After considering the probability of both sides, I decided to send a text to both Fang Yuke and
Wen Tao.

To Fang Yuke: S.H.E. has a song called Not Yet Lovers. Inside, there are some lyrics that
say Be braver, and I will walk with you, even though Wen Tao spoke anxiously, he is still very
reasonable: Feelings cannot be suppressed in the heart. After you say them, maybe the ending
will be extremely different. Fighting! I support you, brother! No, concubine!

To Wen Tao: That..Ive seen Unidentified Punishment by the Lakeside, and I know that
in this society, homosexuality assumes many unbearable responsibilities. They dont bird you
but I will. You have to love each other~~~

When I finished sending these two short texts, I felt that my virtuous achievements came to
their successful conclusions. After moral standing was saved up, you could exchange it for
conversation and world shaking love from me! Hehe.

Julie returned to the dorm to see me hugging my phone, foolishly laughing. She disdainfully
said, By all means, you must not laugh like this on the street. Your laugh right now looks like
deep-fried doughcake in the pot, refried many times. If you see me on the street, pretend you
dont know me. I cant afford to lose my face.

I pouted: Whats wrong with my face? Doesnt it just have a few more pimples on it than
before?

Julie said, In a biochemistry crisis, faces that have been dosed with pimples have all grown to

I covered myself with the blanket, humiliated. Julie was still clamoring: Can your sickness be
touched by water again? Then, dont hide in the blankets. Youll sweat. When the time comes,
you wont be able to bathe, and it wont be a question of whether you resemble a deep fried
doughcake because you will be a deep fried doughcake.

I dug through my head: Are you done yet?

Julie laughed: If you reveal your hair, it also looks great too. At least you wont get as filthy as
the hair of a pig.

I got off the bed with a whoosh, as I clutched Julies neck and prepared to murder her to
prevent her from divulging a secret: Tell me what 1+1 equals?
Julie rolled her eyes and stuck out her tongue: 2

I sinsterly laughed: You know too many things After I followed this with a kacha sound, I
rolled back into bed happily.

[1] Wanderer of the Jianghu: Someone who wanders the Jianghu (duh). LOL. Anyways, its
typically a warrior in the ancient times who would wander around, in search of people to fight or

just things to witness. Not much to do, back in the day

[2] OOXX refers to sex. Either OO or XX is the dominant, and the other is the submissive in
terms of a BL relationship. I forget what those are called T_T

Do you think I will let you eat my tofu [2]? I think I should be the one eating your tofu.
My fate was sure painful. I was surrounded by people with big mouths and many teeth. I looked
into the mirror. Alas, I had indeed grown a sizable punching bag on my face. It was probably
because I got angry too much, so at last, it had objectified onto my face. I didnt know who had
said, No matter how tired you become or how much suffering you go through, just pretend
youre an idiot. If it becomes harder and more dangerous, then pretend youre stupid and
shameless **. In Peking Uni, I had already acted as an idiot, but I didnt think that I would really
have to grow two cheeks too.

**Stupid and shameless literally translates to two cheeks, so thats what she means by growing two
cheeks. And by growing two cheeks, shes referring to her bloated hives.
So it was like this that in the dorm, I repented of my sins, muddle headedly, when at last, a
week late, I welcomed the day of my recovery.
For this reason, I rubbed myself all over in the public baths for a whole hour to get rid of all my
bad luck. After I finished bathing, I felt that I had become quite a few pounds lighter.

I prepared to go to the school dining hall sauteing area to buy some dishes to celebrate. As for
Julie, I wouldnt be inviting her to eat with me. Who let her comfort me uneasily when she was
really mocking me in the midst of many trials and tribulations? HMPH!

I put the dishes onto the table and began to gorge myself. I was feeling great, and my appetite
was awesome!

Right when I was enjoying myself to the fullest, Fang Yuke came over, carrying his tray.

He carefully observed my face. Not sure, he asked: Youre all right now?

My mouth was bulging with food, and I could not speak, so I could only exert all my strength to
nod.

Fang Yuke was still skeptical as he asked: Where did the things on your body go?

There were really too many things shoved into my mouth. I couldnt swallow it even after a little
while, so I could only raise my sleeve and pants to show him my skin.

Fang Yukes eyes brightened: Zhou Lin Lin, youre pretty dark.

I finally swallowed the food: Where am I dark? This is called being healthy. Ive never seen
any celebrities running out into the sunshine. Plus, I have to soak in the swimming pool for two
more months. Obviously, its whitened [from the bleach].

Fang Yuke laughed: Even after turtles have soaked for 1000 years, theyre still dark.

Who are you calling a turtle? You wanna deride this old woman after seeing that shes gotten
better? Say something that makes this old woman happy. I grabbed the chopsticks and
banged them on the plates to urge him on.

Your face is an oval face.

I nodded my head, satisfied. This rascal was great at cooperating with people.

But its only an inverted melon seed [1]. Fang Yuke said indifferently.

You look like a celebrity.

This time, I wasnt excited anymore. I knew that he was going to pull in his deriding spirit. Even
if I tried to stop him, I wouldnt be able to.

You look like Han Hong, thats all.


Everyone said that my life was not easy. I estimated that my inner mentality was more on
guard than even 911 survivors. I covered my head and ate. I had experience with coming into
contact with these kinds of people. At these times, I had to express how much I didnt care, to
make the other person think that I was dull. Otherwise, you would be like the small demon
Tang Seng forced into suicide from Journey to the West, mutilating yourself, and becoming a
waste.

Sure enough, Fang Yuke stopped. After a while, he stole a bite of food: Do you still not know
how to swim?

F**K, he had changed into his mocking front. I shook my head: I dont know how to. Who can
stay in the water without stretching out their necks like you, staying in the water like a turtle for
a millennium?
Idiot, turtles dont have to take a breath underwater. They can only hold their breath for a long
time. Fang Yuke lectured me on Entering Scientific Knowledge as well as Animal Kingdom.

Ignorance was frequently the most humiliating. I didnt speak and could only silently curse this
f**cking tortoise of a millennium, who was really f*cking good at conning people.

Fang Yuke didnt mind, and continued to ask: Then what do you plan to do?

It was very difficult for me to have the mood to eat, so after we spoke about these types of
depressing emotions, my appetite immediately dried up. I angrily said, Whats to be done,
what about coleslaw?**

**Shes almost saying, Shut up, just eat.


Fang Yuke chewed a bite of more food and asked me carelessly: Why dont I teach you?
Maybe your way isnt right. After you find the right technique, you will know how to do it. This is
just like learning how to ride a bike when one is little.

I sighed: The crucial point is that I never learned how to ride a bike

TLN: I knew she would say that xD


Fang Yuke was a failure at being an advisor, and he was also someone with an honest
malicious tongue: How can you be so stupid?

I lifted my head towards the sky: Thank you for your reminder. Otherwise, how would I be
aware of my stupidity?

But Fang Yuke was almost like he had hit the evil mark: But I still want to experiment with how
dumb you can really be. Tomorrow afternoon, Ill teach you swimming.

I shook my head and did not agree.

Fang Yuke got anxious: Im doing this out of good intentions, so dont overthink it. I dont have
any other thoughts. If I really have other thoughts..

I looked at Fang Yukes intense reaction with some unexpectedness: I know you dont have
any other meanings. Do you think I will let you eat my tofu [2]? I think I should be the one
eating your tofu.

Fang Yuke became greatly embarrassed: I wasnt pointing to this either..then why wont you
let me teach you?

I didnt say that I wouldnt let you teach you. I didnt even have time to thank you. I only said I
couldnt go tomorrow. My physiology semester hasnt finished yet. After a few days, Ill be
available.
Fang Yuke drew back the corners of his lips into a smile. His pitch black pupils emitted bright
rays of light.

Over the weekend, I rushed to the swimming pool as if I were going on a date. Because of
hives, last week, I had taken a break from the swimming classes. I had quite a bit of regret: My
attire gradually widens to the point of no return, and I am so helpless that nothing can be
learned.

TLN: The last line is a poemso like the sorta rhyming-ness? XD If you guys have something better for

the poem part, pls do comment The attire widens part refers to how she cant fit into her clothes
anymore probably because shes getting skinnier, and the 2nd part is obvious.
I asked Fang Yuke: Why do you think that people have to learn breaststroke?

Fang Yuke replied: Because breaststroke can help you exercise and lose weight.

I felt this answer could force me into soaking in the swimming pool for a while.

You motherf*cker! The water in the swimming pool was always so cold. I freezed until I shook
uncontrollably, and we still hadnt begun to swim before I started beating the return drum [3].

Fang Yuke asked: Do you know how to float?

I felt it was beneath my dignity to do so. Even though I didnt know how to swim, hadnt I got
along well nicely? Could it be that even my floating had issues? I immediately said, I will show
you some floating now.

I closed my air and entered the water, sticking out my butt, as I slowly let my two legs leave the
ground. After floating for a few seconds I got up and watched him.

Fang Yuke crossed his hands and watched me: Did you float?

I could only reenact it all again.Fang Yuke expressionlessly said, Basically, it would appear
that theres no difference between you and a floating corpse that has just been thrown into a
river.

Bah humbug..

Fang Yuke grabbed my hand and directed me: After a while I will take your hand and walk
forwards. Make your body taut, and try to make your body feel parallel to the swimming pool
surface. Remember, its parallel, not like Jacksons moonwalking dance [4] that leans forwards
45 degrees.

I held my breath again and entered the water, both of my hands fiercely clutching Fang Yukes
hands to make my two legs leave the surface. After I felt a period of time had passed, I got up
and asked him: Is it okay now?

Fang Yuke lifted his hands that had been pinched red by me out of the water, and laughed: Do
you plan to have give birth in the water? Even though youre a little heavy, you have to imagine
that your body is very light and graceful, almost weightless

I cut him off: In what way was I heavy? Why do I have to imagine? Im already weightless.

Right right right. Dont they say women are made out of water? Just pretend like youre
returning to your home. Dont be so afraid of water. Maybe youre naturally a mermaid
princess.

This was about right. I submerged myself into the water and slowly relaxed, allowing Fang
Yuke to lead me forwards slowly. Through my goggles, I saw Fang Yukes slender and
perfectly straight legs walking backwards step by step. Julie had said that people with hair on
their legs would have more requirements or needs. Hehe. Fang Yuke indeed-

When I thought of this, I laughed loudly, but to my surprise, I drank some water instead, which
choked me, not allowing me to come around for a while.

Fang Yuke lightly patted my back: How did you choke after being so great before?

I was too embararssed to tell him why.

After we had practiced for an hour, I could about pass the floating part of the test. But it was
unfortunate that the test was on swimming, not floating. I sat by the pool and sighed: Master is
leading me to enter the Sect, so I can repair myself.

Fang Yuke accompanied me and sat next to me: Why dont you have confidence in yourself?
If you have no confidence in yourself then you have to have confidence towards your Master.
Dont worry. In the future, I will bring you here to practice every other day, to make sure you will
pass the exam early.

I cast a sidelong glance at him: Practice every other day? Forget about it. Im going to request
menstrual period leave. I couldnt stand the training that would require high criterion and high
amounts of time.

Fang Yuke laughed: Are you peeing blood? No way.

I felt Fang Yuke began to become vulgar when we were together. These shady and deriding
words of peeing blood was really not fit to be spit out from between his lips. I boredly began
to gossip: Fang Yuke, why wont you confess your love? He hadnt replied to the text I sent
him last time. This person would definitely ruin efficiency at work in the future.

Fang Yuke obviously didnt want to participate in this conversation.


He said to me: Lets go practice in the water some more.

I naturally determinedly said no. Training and gossip had no comparable qualities.

I smashed his pot and asked him to the end: Wen Tao was very reasonable. Many things will
create internal injuries if you stifle them. Morewover, I really cant think of any reasons why you

wouldnt. The whole world knows that Ru Ting likes you. Its only that youre not brave enough.
How can you be so bad?

Fang Yuke said, Because Im afraid of failure. Maybe if I fail, she wont want to see me again.

Ahh this was the operation of a dwarf. I sighed: If you dont say it, then find a tree hole to
practice to, and at least your heart can be happier.

Fang Yuke shook his head and bitterly smiled: Some words cant even be said to a tree. Im
afraid if I say it, Ill make myself into a scoundrel.

Love is really like a wall brick, it swats some and makes others stupid. Arent you pretty smart
with that head? Why are you retarded when it comes to feelings?! If I like someone else, I will
let him know. Its a pity that I thought I met my Prince Charming, when the Prince said I went
the wrong way because of the White Horse [5]. Really, he wasnt there to find me. F**k, why is
finding a prince so hard. In the future, if I like anyone else, Ill oppress them early on. Who let
them come so late?

Fang Yuke lowered his head: Whoever likes someone first will already have been oppressed.
Why do you still have to blame the other person?
I looked at him strangely: Are you helping Wen Tao talk? You two are really interesting. When
you meet you start fighting, but behind the other persons back, you two help the other person
speak. Are you two..

Fang Yuke pushed me into the water: Continue practicing. Since you have time to think about
these things, you obviously havent practiced enough.

[1] Oval face: . Literally means melon seed face. This is what a melon seed face looks
like here, so when he calls her face an inverted melon seed, its basically the other way
around. Likean inverted triangle sorta if you think of the models face as a triangle.
[2] Eat tofu: . It literally means eat tofu, but figuratively it means, to take advantage of
another person by like touching them too much or something.

[3] Beat the return drum . It means to give up on something or to surrender (in other
terms) xD
[4] Refers to Michael Jackson.

[5] Prince Charming . Literally means white horse prince (or prince on a white horse),
so thats where the White Horse comes from.

As I held unreal unexpectations, the long vacation of May 1st came at long last. This type of
expectation made one feel as if I had a magnificent plan that was to be unveiled, but in fact, I
only wanted to sleep through the twilight and the day. In the light of Julies words, I especially
wanted to rely and look like the pig species.

But my plan couldnt keep up with the changes. The day before May 1st, Shan Shan called, to
let it be known that he would be gracing me with his presence and coming to Beijing. He made
us properly inquire after him. I especially lovably reminded him that he would have to buy two
tickets, as to not cram the passenger in beside him.

On the day of May 1st, the sun that had hidden itself away suddenly revealed itself to the top of
the sky, dazzling the eyes.

On the way to the airport, I mumbled to myself about coming out without sunscreen on. Fang
Yuke glanced over at me and said, Definitely dont bring sunscreen. If other people see you
using their brand, Im only afraid that youll never be able to buy that product ever again.

I couldnt care less that we were in a public setting, and loudly said, Dont think that just
because youve coached me for a few days, you can deride me as you please. Seniority in the
family is arranged. Youre still my little concubine.

A few people from the 90s used peculiar expressions to look at us. Among them was a rascal
who had a nose loop, who was debatably a male or a female who sized me up: What a
daughter-in-law, but still so childish.

All right, I concede. Bestowing a title to my little concubine was indeed not giving him face, but
this old woman couldnt stand silence. Even though today, I wore a crude yellow polo shirt, with
crude yellow pants, with a red peaked cap, at least I had even that little bit of a sanitary
aunties charm and grace. You should also go look around and find which auntie has such a
youthful and radiant face, and which auntie has skin that can break with just a snap of the
fingers, right?

I looked out the bus window, seeing my face looking back at me vaguely. Fang Yuke spoke:
Dont look at it anymore. Your face has more beauty birthmarks,and more dimples than
others, but everything else is all pretty good.

Who would help me record his words and shut this malicious mouth up? In the future when I
left the house, I would be like other beautiful women and stuff a biggg makeup bag into my
bag, and fill it onto my face even when I had nothing to do.

I turned around to provoke him: This is all natural and pure. If you dont understand, then dont
blindly comment on it. Right now, the market has a lot of fake products. Even though they look
pretty, you shouldnt use them. How will you know that Ru Tings outstandingness isnt forged
and acquired? Ill admit it, I had gotten so anxious that I was willing to frame someone else.
SorryRu Ting

Fang Yuke lowered his head to look at my chest: Not using it is better than using it.

When we got to the airport, I had already fallen onto the seat, my vital energy suffering a huge
injury. I swear to God that I will never bicker with him again. This persons teeth have been
used to grind knives! The moment it bites, it will hit the point.

Waves of passengers came out from the airport entrance. Within the sea of people, I finally
saw a fat and stout figure. I walked up and extended my finger like ET [1], solemnly jabbing his
stomach. My expressed greeting could be considered to have been given. Shan Shan laughed
like Maitreya. I decided to double the grievances Fang Yuke had given to me, to Shan Shan:
Shan Shan in the future you can take the table away and place some bowls directly on your
stomach. This will be so convenient in so many ways, and youll be caring for your stomach!

Shan SHan didnt get angry, and he even mocked himself: Sometimes I wont even have to
find snacks on the floor. I can pick it up from my stomach and eat it.

I laughed: Shan Shan is doing the right thing. Wasting is shameful, and the more frugal you
are, the richer youll become. In the future youll definitely be a Monopoly master. This little sis
will cool off in the shade by leaning on this tree (aka Shan Shan).

Fang Yuke patted Shan Shans shoulder in the meantime: Lets play Monopoly by ourselves.

I felt that fate was really a wonderful thing. Shan Shan was our former neighbor, and Fang
Yuke was Shan Shans current neighbor. But Fang Yuke and I had not known each other
through Shan Shan. Xiao Xi and Ru Ting were Fang Yukes past neighbors, but Xiao Xi had
become my pain while Ru Ting had become Fang Yukes shougongsha [2]. Who said the world
was bit? Even after turning every which way, it was forever those same people.

At night we held a welcoming dinner for Shan Shan.

Original and most updated translations are from volaretranslations. Please dont be reading this off of

30 minutes earlier, Shan Shan hadnt spoken to us at all, but only dug in and ate like if he didnt
eat in time, the waitress would take away his plates. I had no choice but to remind Shan Shan
that we were not here to eat a buffet, which did not seem to be the issue.

Fang Yuke laughed: Shan Shan, during middle school, you never ate so intensely. How come
after going out of the country, you brought so many stomachs along with you?

Shan Shan clasped his potbelly and leaned on the back of his chair, squinting his eyes to look
at me: Lin Lin, after not seeing you for so many months, how come youve gotten skinnier? If
you have any secret know-hows, you should do the right thing and share them with me.

I cupped my face as I laughed. This flattery really made this old woman burst with joy.

Fang Yuke immediately followed with: A camel that has died from losing weight is bigger than
a horse. So what if the skeleton is big? If she gets skinnier, then she cant get much more
skinnier.
I got furious: How do you know my skeleton is big? The sentence from the song from a play

Delicate and pretty bones must not degenerate according to convention, which is speaking
about me, in other words.

Fang Yuke slowly put vegetables into the hotpot: Did you forget that Im your weight loss
instructor? Im even more clear than you on where youre fat and skinny.
I responded evasively, unable to come up with a comeback.

Shan Shan shoved more meat into his mouth: Dont look at my fat. Actually, my heart is pretty
delicate. Ive already smelled some intense emotions in the air. Hiding something from me,
your bro isnt conscientious.

I used my chopsticks to knock on Fang Yukes plate: Introduce your one true love to him,
otherwise Ill get mad.

Fang Yuke only foolishly laguehd: You are very familiar with her. I dont need to introduce
her.

Shan Shan continued: Yuke is a good guy who is commonly resented in the male sex, no
matter how many women prostrate themselves underneath his jeans. Lin Lin, can you obtain
him?

I laughed: I can snatch him. Other people prostrate themselves under his jeans, but Ive
prostrated myself under his little swim trunks. Who is braver than me?

Shan Shan drank a sip of beer: Why do your words sound a little perverted..

Stop insulting me, whos like a pervert? Ill get on top of whoever calls me perverted. Even my
mom and his mom are perverts.

Haha, Lin Lin, speaking to you is great. I dont have to consider the other persons sex,
identity, or religion at all.

Of course. I am advocating for guys and girls, and the Great world.

We chatted like this, line after line. Shan Shan and I conversed extremely happily. In the end,
we had both gotten a little high from drinking.

Shan SHan supported his fat head and asked me: Lin Lin, our childhood was great. Everyone
played with me sincerely. After my family got money I couldnt tell who was a friend and who
was a pretending a**hole

Fang Yuke looked at us, as if he was looking at two perverts. In the end, he stopped moving
his chopsticks to eat. I thought that if it wasnt for our drunkedness, he probably would have run
far away and pretended he didnt know us.

I pointed at Fang Yuke and said to Shan Shan: Fang Yuke isnt our friend. Look at how he
turns his back on us. Would friends turn their backs on someone?
Shan Shan began a tongue twister: He isnt my friend, and he isnt your boyfriend, so- so, I
guess he should be my friend if we go down the line.

I seized Fang Yukes face: Today, Shan SHan is the king. Whatever he says, goes. Shan
Shan said you are my boyfriend, so I guess you are my boyfriend. Come, let this old lady take
liberties with you.
In the midst of my haziness, I saw that I had pulled Fang Yukes face into an irregular shape. I
started having fun: Wow, your skin feels great. What cosmetic products to you use? Oh! Why
is your face red? Rosiness emerges from the shite, standing out from within. Its so cute! Let
this old woman kiss you!

I exploited the opportunity and ferociously kissed Fang Yukes cheek. Then, I turned around
and said to Shan Shan: This rascal even used skincare products

Shan Shan, we already came to an agreement. You will lend me your submachine gun for me
to use! Later, Ill provide you with some gold, okay? Before he could reply, my head banged
onto the table immediately. In the midst of my confusion, I saw Fang Yuke was still clasping his
red tomato cheek, foolishly standing there. That fool!

The next day, within my haziness, I was woken up by three pairs of eyes brimming with
resentment.

My throat nearly discharged smoke as I waved to them: Hey, dont stand in front of me and
block the way. If you dont have anything to do then pour me a cup of water.

Julie obediently went to go pour some water. The water sounds flowed in the midst of the quiet
dorm. I smelled something fishy: This was the quiet that comes before a rainstorm..

I got off the bed and quickly took the cup: Ill do it myself, Ill do it myself while looking at
the three of them.

I drank the water, feeling as if I was drinking cardboard [1]. I was really being stared at so
much that I got goosebumps. So I could only gain the initiative by striking first: I cant do with
people like you. If you have things to say then say it. Why are you ravaging my mental vigor?

Wang Jie held the manner of the leader of the dorm. She dragged a chair and sat in front of
me: Lin Lin, do you remember what you did last night and how you returned?

After she reminded me, I began to recall what had happened. Sitting upright and still, I tried to
recall anything, at all costs.

Julie was someone who would suddenly erupt with anger, and almost as if she was shooting
me with machine gunfire: Wang Jie, dont look at her trying her best to remember. Youll know
as soon as you see her empty expression. She forgot everything. If you dont believe it, look
her face to face for a whole day. I bet that before she remembers everything youll fall apart
first.

Sure enough, the scariest people are the people that know one better than oneself.

Wang Jie persevered: Then do you remember what you did last night?

I had some impressions: I went out to hold a welcoming dinner for my friend. Before, he was
out of the country, rarely does he ever come back for a whole half year. This time, he even
came to Beijing. Its too rare..
Ah Tao made a rest motion [2] with her hands, and cut me off: Stop stop stop, Im not
interested in your person who travels far from home. Tell us who you went with and what you
did.

I went with Fang Yuke. We didnt do anything. We talked and drank..

Julie patted her thigh: Finally, weve gotten to the main point. What happened after you drank
the wine?

I continued to remember: After we drank, we still talked. Then, we drank some more.. omg,
stopstop, I seemed to have done a very brave thing. Was it real or an illusion? Did I do it? Did I
not do it? Did I do it? Did I not do it? As I thought, I casually repeated: Did I do it?

Julie directly swatted my head, rather than patting her thigh: Youve thought of guys to the
point of becoming crazy. In all your confusion youve already thought of getting onto the bed
and settling the matter in one go after drinking? You dont even know if you did it. Yesterday
from your foolish laugh, if anyone did do anything to you, then they would have to be doubly
blind and deaf.

Actually, I wasnt referring to this much later step. I only wanted to know if I had kissed him or
not, along with some of the foreplay and so on

You came back covered completely. But, Wang Jie calmly said, when Fang Yuke sent you
back home, your clothing was not in good order.

Julie also wailed: Look at you. You wont change your character. From a little age, youve
learned how to take advantage of a male. After this gets out, will you be able to marry? Last

night when you returned, you were even hauling Fang Yuke out to tear off his clothes. And you
even blamed the other person for having too many buttons. I even blushed for you. Fang Yuke
didnt dare bring you back to his house, but when he carried you on his back, your shouts that
involved your tearing heart and splitting lungsohhhhhh

Julie had sure been immersed into last nights memories. It wasnt clear if she could be Dao
Ming Sis mom, but she could definitely be Shan Cais moms substitute [3].

Ah Tao continued to supplement: Dont worry, this time you started off successfully. All the
girls in the girls dorm and even the Dorm Manager Auntie has remembered you. Of course, I
believe this kind of gossip has already reached Ru Ting who is vacationing in Europe. Im
afraid shell immediately return. Alas, the fire has started in our backyard, and disaster will
escalate into a miserable wall. Ah Tao looked like she was mourning for her country and for
the citizens, but how long would she pretend for? Immediately, she patted my hand and said,
Then we will have a great show to watch. Lin Lin, you must fight on, so that making the gossip
post sticky on bbs wont be in vain.

Cold sweat started forming as I listened: Then what did Fang Yuke say?

Julie stuck one leg over the other and said, So we must say that Fang Yuke is a good person.
He personally helped you wipe your face and even told us to explain everything, and made us
take very good care of you. He even said that when you sleep, you might kick the blankets off
and told us to be more careful. Say, what have you been hiding from us? How many times
have you gone over to Fang Yukes house? How come he knows that you can even kick off
two blankets off the bed?

Alas, before when I had been cramming for computer class, I had fell asleep on his bed many
times

Julie saw that I looked extremely depressed. So she added oil onto the fire and asked: Did
you know how many enlightening remarks you issued last night? That was practically an
undisguised attack, an attack that occurred in front of the whole girls dorm.. But this type of
suicidal method challenge really let us feel very sad. The listeners all cried. If you have these
types of thinkings, then you must wait until the time is right. In addition, asking for numerous
autographs, when you have a 1% chance of success isnt great to publically declare. Right
now, youre so bombastic..oh dear..

I couldnt stand Julies talkative and flippant manner: What exactly did I say?

Hehe, you said,this famous blossom has a master. Lin Lin has come to plow through and
loosen the soil. I have taken advantage of my concubine, Fang Yuke tonight! Ive even kissed
him..
O. M. G. She wouldnt be kidding me, right

At that time, phones that could take pictures were all high end phones, but I also forgot that in
this school, many people who could read were **. Last night, my shameful performance was
uploaded to the Web by some busybodies. This was the first time I thanked our old dorms
dusky lighting which made the expression on the person not that distinct. But on the whole, I
looked like I had practically run out of a mental hospital.

It wasnt too long before I received Fang Yukes text: Have you woken up? Shan Shan wants
us to go to his hotel and meet up. In the afternoon, well go to the Summer Palace.

I didnt want to go. As a child, to even now, I had done stupid things, but I had never done such
a stupid thing ever. If I really were to go, I would have to have skin as thick as a city wall.

But if I didnt go, it would look like I had a guilty conscience..

Right when I was considering, Shan Shan texted me: If you dont go because of yesterdays
matter, all the flesh on my body will despise you. Alas, when did this rascal get such a high
IQ?

My IQ wasnt that high either. As I was forced by Shan Shan, I obediently went.

After I got downstairs, I first met up with Fang Yuke.

I had never been so quiet in my entire life. Seeing him come out from his dorm, I lowered my
head even more and waited for judgement like a sinner who was about to be executed.

Fang Yuke was also very quiet, as if he had offended me somehow as he stood next to me.
The two of us blockheads stood in our original place for a while. By and by, absolutely all the
females with bigger mouths had already begun to discuss it: This is the pair that caused all the
torment last night right?

After I heard this, even if I was very brazen like the atmosphere, I also had to shift my steps
and begin moving.

The whole way, we remained silent. It sure was weird.

Yesterday on the bus, we had even fought and quarrelled. Sure enough, making oaths and
promises with a poisonous tongued person was too malicious. I couldnt bicker with him
anymore.

I rigidly laughed: Fang Yuke, Ill make your brain make a sudden turn.

Fang Yuke was as cold as ice and frost, as he preserved a fixed attitude.

I continued: A tortoise walks over a pile of poop, but he only leaves three footprints on top.
Why?

Fang Yuke did not speak.

I drily laughed: Because one foot was used to pinch his nose.

Fang Yuke continued to maintain his silence. His eyebrows didnt raise at all.

There was a pig who walked along, until he reached another country. What did he change
into?

Fang Yukes acupuncture points had been pressed. He didnt react at all.

I could only reveal the answer to the riddle: He became a pig. But, this time, even I had been
injured harshly by this corny joke. Alas, I wanted to explain many things, but I only wanted to
speak about pretentiousness and not about sullenness.

Thatlast nightI didnt mean anythingthe matter when my lips touched your face, you
dont have to worry about it. Just take it as youve been bitten by a dog, a pig has nipped you,
or even that a cuckold has pressed down on you.

Fang Yuke suddenly said, Zhou Lin Lin, just try drinking like this in front of anyone else in the
future.

I saw that things had made a change for the better and immediately put my left hand on my
heart, as my right hand made a fist: Yes master. This little one wont get drunk anymore.

Fang Yuke supplemented: Do not falsify my ideas. I meant that you would no longer drink
wine, not that you should no longer get drunk. You cant control yourself at all, so you cant
stop yourself from getting drunk even if you tell yourself to not do so.

I explained: My capacity for liquor is actually pretty good.

But your liquor taste is bad.

I lowered my head. I really had no way to retort. Actually, isnt it me who has come to a
disadvantage? I used my mouth, but all you did was offer your face respectfully. Even
mosquitors, houseflies and small flying insects have kissed your face before. Why must you
mind it so much and get angry? Ill just take it as I ate some snacks, and Ill let it go. You
compensated for your loss with your first kiss, and I also compensated for that. Can we call it
even?

Fang Yukes complexion had changed.

But as for now, my brain was recalling my conversation with Julie last night: Julie, if I said,
when I kissed Fang Yuke , I wasnt completely intoxicated, so my consciousness was aware,
but I still kissed him, what does that mean?

That means you have a porn heart at all times.

Say something decent.

All right. According to the Duke of Zhous Thoughts by Day, Dreams by Night, or according to
Dr. Sigmund Freuds analytical reasoning of the spirit, this means youve been wanting to kiss
him for a long time. After the alcohol numbed you, you threw off all restraints and directly
controlled your brain to do it.

And you even said I had a porn heart.

That isnt the same. Why would you kiss that turtle, and even hug him to the point of no return
afterwards?

Then that means, I retained my normal esthetics while in between being intoxicated and
aware.

But the words you said after you got drunk cant be explained with esthetics. In reality, youve
been wanting to pry open the corner for a long time, right? Alas, it turns out even you are a
outward cold but passionate inside type of woman

Are you saying that Fang Yuke, my counterpart has wants a male-female relationship? Im
possible. I liked Xiao Xi to the point that he enjoined with my bones. How could I be having an
affair?

Did you fall in love with Xiao Xi or did you fall in love with the feeling of being fond of someone
else? San mao said, Some peoples love only has one type The moodiness of that time. If
your counterpart misses this, and regards their moodiness as a romance from long ago, it is
childish in itself. You and Fang Yuke have been together for so long. So long, that it surpasses
the time you and Xiao Xi have been together, and it even surpasses the time Ru Ting and
Fang Yuke were together. It is quite normal for familiarity to breed fondness.

Extreme hogwash

Dont worry. What does life care more about? Eggs.

I pretended I carelessly asked Fang Yuke: Do you think it is possible to like someone for so
long, and then realize you like someone else after just one night?

Fang Yuke firmly shook his head.

Why?

If you wanted to discover it, then you should have discovered it earlier. Why would you realize
it after so long?

What if your head is stupid?

Fang Yuke glared at me. I reacted and immediately said, Im saying if. Maybe you only like
your memories of that person, but isnt it also a type of liking? So if you get her, and
immediately find out that before, you were only living in a fake facade of a world, but the reality
makes you wake up, and it turns out that the person you like only exists in that time.

Fang Yuke glared at me: When did you become so perceptive? Love has originally been
something that cannot be planned out. If it is not planned, then it can only begin from being laid
back, and end casually. But thats because your feelings arent deep enough for the other
person, and youre looking for an excuse for your feelings.

When he finished, I was more depressed. On one hand, I had suddenly felt that my feelings
towards Xiao Xi had become vast and indistinct. On the other hand, if I wanted to really like

Fang Yuke, then I would really be consigned to eternal damnation as I repeated a disaster,
and liked someone who had someone else in their hearts. For me, I really lay down wherever I
fell.

Chapter 33- Chaotic Feelings


Shan Shan saw me, and his evil smile became more pronounced: Lin Lin, I havent seen you
for many days, and I have a whole new level of respect for you. You are worthy of being called
the the little hegemon of the military.

The little hegemon of the military was my honorary title when I was little. I laughed: A real man
doesnt boast about his past achievements. No noblemen bring up the embarrassments of the
past.

Shan Shan ignored me, and only pressed on Fang Yukes body, pretending to tear apart his
shirt incessantly. While he pulled, he yelled with a girly voice: Why are there so many buttons!
Tear it all off for me!

People want to save face, and trees also want their bark. This was more than I could bear, and
I could not endure it anymore. The tiger in me came out and I screamed: Fang Yuke, in the
future wear T-shirts for me. You arent allowed to have buttons on, okay?

Fang Yuke laughed without getting mad.

This kind of a laugh made me feel embarrassed. I reaffirmed my dimple fetish, but why did a
face without any dimples shown still dazzle my eyes? Was this a soul-sucking person?

This was a dangerous omen.

When Northern people looked at the Summer Palace, they viewed the mountains, the water,
and the little lakes in between. As for us three who had seeped in the influence of the pure
wives and immortal mythologies, to Southerners who had grown up with mountains on either
side of us, the Summer palace already had no appeal. In the end, we played around until our
interest grew dull. Fang Yuke and I rested in the Long Corridor of the Summer Palace while
Shan Shan could only sit across from us, all alone, due to his huge girth, as he ate Taiwanese
sausages happily.

According to common sense, when I couldnt think through something, I would choose to put it
to one side, and no longer think about it. But last night, the discussions that I had with Julie still
lingered on within my head, as they spiraled around in high altitudes, incapable of landing

anytime soon. Going to the bottom of all this, had I really changed my feelings for another, or
was this only a pure accident? Even if I was dumb, I couldnt have gotten to the point of not
knowing who I liked. Xiao Xi was like a preserved plum candy. After steeping in yellow wine, it
was clear and pungent. After finishing it, my heart and stomach became warm. Later, my
energy became sufficient. As for Fang Yuke..

Hello? Why are you staring blankly? Fang Yuke pushed me.

I am thinking about one of the most important questions of my life. I ignored him and
continued to analyze.

Alas, your expression when you ponder can even empty to this point! Your expression is the
same when you use your brain and when you dont. You have some potential of being a pig.
Fang Yuke purposefully dragged out the word pig.

I rolled my eyes and disdained talking to him.

Oh, sorry. Fang Yuke paused, Speaking of potential, I have underestimated you. What you
have there is a pig temperament that emits from your inner core.
I regretted putting him and Xiao Xi in the same standards. I had really blindly worried about
everything. How was it possible to like someone with a malicious tongue? I completely stopped
speaking and watched to see how badly he could take me down.

Youre mad? Look at how cute McDull [4] is. Whats so bad about being a pig? You dont have
to think about things. When youre unhappy you can sleep. When you sleep, you can snore.
Isnt it the life youre pursuing?

How would you know what life Im pursuing? My dream is I looked up at the sky at a 45
degree angle with a grand feeling that came to an end spontaneously. I really had no dreams.
Right now, the furthest dream I had was graduating. As for other things, I had not ha time to
consideror I hadnt known what to do yet.
I lowered my head, dismayed. Maybe I really was the realistic version of McDull. McDull had
once said, Its pretty easy for me to behave with integrity. If there are no fish balls, coarse
noodles are good. If there are no coarse noodles, fish balls are good.

But the reality was that I couldnt get fish balls or coarse noodles. The heavens said, fish balls
and coarse noodles had already all been preordered by someone else.

I bitterly laughed: You have really hit the target. Sure enough, I am just a pig. Fortunately you
still found a cute representative so that my heart can somewhat stabilize.

Fang Yuke looked at the distant lake and smiled: McDull has a voracious desire, so he is
stupid. What about you?

I finally knew what Fang Yuke was like. He was like the quote from Tang Bohu [1] Having a
smile on ones face as one falls forward within half a step [2]. Using honey, Sichuan fritillary
bulb, Chinese bulb flower, and Tianshan snow lotus herb to compound the medicine, without
refridgeration and no preservation, besides the fierce toxicity, it still tasted very good. Fang
Yuke said things very maliciously, to make you unable to bear it, but in the end, he would
always give you a bit of a sigh, along with a strand of warmth.

I was perplexed again.

Sure enough, McDull had a voracious desire so he was so clumsy. I couldnt help but agree
with him.

I had a new outlook towards Fang u Ke who had brought a good deal of inconvenience to my
life. For example, no longer talking wantonly. After we met each other it had painstakingly
lessened. In the past, I had not had any misgivings about my body, but now my opinions
towards my body had become a solid zero.

At first, Fang Yuke didnt care until I didnt take part in the swimming training for two times in a
row. Only then, did he sense something peculiar.

He harshly ordered me downstairs and the moment he opened his mouth, his words were
mean: Did you eat the wrong medicine recently? Last time I called you a pig, and you kept a
grudge for so long. In the past, you werent so petty.

I grabbed my shoes and kicked a rock fiercely to the other side of the path, not speaking.

Fang Yuke was a little anxious: Youre really still angry? In the past, you said more excessive
things and now youre so frail? Do you want me to give you a riddle? If I say some more corny
jokes then I can pass?

I didnt know what to say. Every time he opened his mouth, it was always about the past. Right
now I was a little confused. I didnt understand if I liked him or not? I could confess my love one
time for life, or I could be rejected one time for life. Why not be like me and Xiao Xi, willing to
be common friends. I didnt think that speaking to him would become the opposite persons
burden.

Fang Yuke mimicked my appearance on the bus and swayed his head as he said, A tortoise
walks on top of some poop, but only leaves 3 footprints. Why?

Because one of his feet is pinching his nose. I said softly.

Fang Yuke let out all his air as he laughed: Sure enough, making someone else answer a
riddle like this feels out of sorts. But, this time is an exception, because youve finally spoken to
me normally.

Alas, forget about it. Dont let feelings be too serious. I hadnt produced the main threads of my
logic which made me distressed. If I were really to say something about it, I might as well be
driven mad.

Fang Yuke looked at my somewhat relaxed face: Next afternoon well swim. If you dont
practice anymore youll really be unable to pass the exam.

I determined that my strategy would be to despise it, and for my tactics, I would value it.
Specifically, I was talking about my thoughts. After I summarized the perplexing conversation I
had with Julie, about how moodiness and pureness was a type of psychological hint, and had
nothing to do with feelings, I wanted to despise someone like me, who could lightly dither
between two people and talk about unclear feelings when in reality, I couldnt even lower my

own guard. By no means was I going to hop up and down before his eyes, or be cocky.
So at the swimming class, I spoke to Fang Yuke with dignity:

Is not knowing how to swim extraordinary? If you have the ability, then grow two wings and fly
up to the sky! Try swimming 200m without taking a breath!?! I picked faults in this style.
You swim your own thing! Dont hold my hand! Men and women should not touch hands when
they give or receive things. My slim and lily-white hands have been grabbed around by you,
this country bumpkin rascal. - Plan B

Hey, I didnt let you touch it, but you just had to touch! Whose face is red now? When did you
see my face get red? Are you color blind?! Sarcastic Plan

Thank you for teaching me swimming. I cannot express enough words as my thanks. If theres
another day, Ill treat you and Ru Ting to a meal. Refined and courteous plan

Fang Yuke looked at me like he was seeing a freak. Suddenly he came over to tossle my hair
and said, Take off that hat! You arent Zhou Lin Lin. Speak, who are you? Who sent you?

The devil got higher and higher as he spoke, while the other person had pushed him
aside, incomparably childish, but still my plan remained unachieved.

Because I immediately even more childishly cohorted with him and said, Pu Ni[3]was a little
girl from a Buddhist nunnery, but met this benefactor in passing in the peach blossom woods.
Within the hundreds of flowers, none of the leaves stuck to this benefactors body. Xiao Ni
yearned for you daily, and was so anxious. If I could be as bold to reincarnate into a common
person, and meet benefactor again, all my yearnings would be fulfilled.

Fang Yuke recovered his normal language: This is normal. Just now, the Sarcastic Freak
mood you had was so ugly. In the future, dont be like this, otherwise Ill ignore you. Well see
who can stand your appearance like this.

When he said this, my heart immediately softened. Then, I took my strategies and tactics and
threw them to the back of my head.

Chapter 34- Living Up to Summer Vacation (1)
Maybe the pursuit of studies in a university was limited to only the last few weeks of school.
Only in the last few weeks of school would you be able to see all the university students with a
rigorous and scholarly attitude as they delved into their vigor and spirit.

On the day we finished testing, I laid as stiff as a corpse until I finished bathing at the public
baths. Then, I returned to my dorm, unable to endure my physical strength, as I slept for a day
and a night.

As I slept soundly, I received a phone call from Senior Brother Yu, the president of our
Hometown Association, who made us quickly sign up to participate in this years travel
activities during summer vacation. To me, Senior Brother Yus existence was like that of a god.
He showed us how to have poor family circumstances, how to work energetically for the
prosperity of the country, how to keep persevering In brief, before he went to Peking
University, he had experienced all the most tragic things. For a short time, he had to stop going
to school, but in the end, he still tenaciously crammed and self-studied, getting into Peking
University in the end. At that time, he was the idol and model of our whole little town, and the
president of our school gave even more sincere advice and magnified his portrait and
engraved it onto the pillar of humiliation that was located on a summit that everyone had to
raise their heads at a 45 degree to admire.

Pillar of humiliationumm Lin Lin is using this reference because its very high. I dont think she
thought about the humiliation part XD
Right now, this rich Senior Brother Yu had actually personally called me, one of the nameless
younger generation, who was completely inferior to him. No matter what kinds of activities I
had to participate in, I would agree. After I finished the call, I even lamented that I unexpectedly
had such a life to go and participate in activities along with other people from the same village.
Indeedwait a second, Hometown Association? Wouldnt Fang Yuke be at my left while Xie
Duan Xi was at my right? My energy suddenly dropped~ could I withdraw from this association
again?

(If you forgot, Xie Duan Xi is Xiao Xis real name)


Let alone, I had equal feelings towards activities and theorizing. In other words, I believed that
reading a book was boring, so exercising was also hogwash. If you felt the paper was
extremely shallow, then this was definitely something you had to personally undertake [1]. As
far as I was concerned, this phrase didnt apply. Because I didnt pursue deep things. I pursued
doing things half-heatedly which included feelingsin brief, I was a skin-deep person.

The summer vacation hiking people list had already been dispatched to the post office box. I
saw Fang Yuke, Xiao Xi, and even Ru Tings name who had participated- not really being a
fellow villager. In the male, Senior Brother Yu sent out, the letter was as follows:

Fellow junior sisters and brothers:

For lodging birds and to remembering trees, and the stories of the fish in the ponds and these
other profound happenings in the midst of nature and our country. This time, in our travels, we
will be visiting our village to explore the growth in each of the economic industries of our
village, and we will also give some related advice for these departments, and settle some
practical matters. As someone who cherishes the whole of China, from Peking University, the
first place we have to thank, and the first place we want to give back to is our hometown. I
hope everyone is energetically preparing to actively participate. This time, for our travels, I

have invited my junior schoolmate, the editor of the school magazine, the famous Wen Tao
from the news department to also participate and to also grasp knives and support us, and to
extend the tourism industry growth of our hometown. Hehe.

This was really a new and fresh practice, putting me in an awkward position, and putting
mutual people in an assembly together. It was really the daringness of the president of our
hometown assembly. But as for big phrases like, For lodging birds and to remembering trees
trees, and the stories of the fish in the ponds and these other profound happenings. cherish
the whole of China give back they were wasted on someone small like me.

No matter how much I didnt want to participate objectively or subjectively, I was someone who
could adjust and recover faster than a dog. On the day of our travels, I went with bags beneath
my eyes, without any makeup to conceal it.

In the past, I had pretended to be a wise and virtuous woman made of jasper, but now I didnt
have any point of pretending. I thanked Wen Tao for being my male companion at Ru Tings
birthday party, helping me shed all my burdens. The so-called a dead pig doesnt fear scalding
water, was this precise concept. As for going in front of Fang Yuke, I had never had any image
in front of him anyways. So, this time, I would go into battle with nothing on me, as I resumed
my position as the little hegemon of the whole army, and the unequaled King Kong beautiful
maiden, as I aggressively stood in front of everyone.

Dead pig doesnt fear scalding water means that youre super super undaunted
This was the first time that I would attend a hometown assembly activity, and seeing the 20ish
grandiose people, I only recognized a few. Senior Brother Yu introduced everyone on the car.
When he was about to introduce me, he suddenly stopped, and didnt remember my name. So
he could only awkwardly say to me: Junior sis, this is the first time youve reported, so you
better introduce yourself.

Under these kinds of circumstances, I was even more embarrassed than he was. When
someone gets to a community, and sees everyone merging, joyous and harmonious, while I
was cut off from others and dried in the air at the other side, so much so that the organizer
didnt remember my name, it would create a negative mood. In a more serious case, it would
make someone abandon themselves to despair.

Whats more, I originally felt very impulsive towards this activity. Immediately I wished I would
drag my luggage and go buy a train ticket to go home. Wen Tao laughed as he came over, and
put a hand on my shoulder: Ill grandly introduce everyone. This is my girlfriend. This time
coming, a small half was for Senior Bro Yus reputation, but the greater half was because she
wanted to. Everyone please support me. The most important part is to support us. After things
end, I will freely give up all the QQ numbers of all the beautiful girls in my department as well
as their phone numbers.

Everyone clapped their hands. I pushed aside Wen Taos hand: Why cant you get over it?
Last time, didnt we speak through everything?

You have your rights, and I have mine. Lets not interfere with each other. Plus, do you really
want to lose face in front of the person you like? Wen Tao gently spoke.

I was somewhat grateful to Wen Tao, knowing that he had saved me out of the goodness of his
heart, but I indeed also didnt care about displaying myself well in front of Xiao Xi. Julie said,
that the person who was refused was always the one with the wishful thinking and delusions.
But why couldnt they change and let the other person have a whole new level of respect for
them? I once was like that, but now, I suddenly didnt have this interest. I didnt know if I had
matured, or if it was because of something else.

On the long train ride, everyone expressed team spirit, as they played poker one after another,
and cheated other people of tokens. In the middle of the night, they still hadnt stopped as they
got so noisy that none of the other passengers could sleep. On the other hand, I was a little
excited to see how these people would cherish the whole of China and give back to their
hometown. I hadnt seen my dear friend stamp his feet due to making a mistake when putting
out his cards. If the window of the train could open, and if it allowed people to leap out, I would
have jumped and committed suicide.

Ever since Ru Ting had known about the drunken matter, her attitude towards me had taken a
devastating decline. When she saw me, it was like she had seen a demon personifying pest. I
really wanted to tell her that if she wanted to take revenge, I wouldnt mind if she came to kiss
me. At the moment, she was peeling an apple for Fang Yuke. Fang Yuke looked out the
window without saying a word. Xiao Xi sat across from them, resting his eyes. Wen Tao sat
next to me as he directed the people playing cards across from us. As for me, I pretended to
be a holy female, as I clasped the book National Geography and read it. Just like Yuke from
the past who had read National Geography while twirling his pen. At the time I had even
made fun of him by saying that he was pretending to be an elephant while sticking a piece of
Chinese onion [in his nose]. But now, I didnt read Salon and I had begun to read intellectual
magazines. When people know each other longer, they will slowly influence each other, and
then understand each other more and more, and resemble each other more and more. For
example, I knew Fang Yuke was looking outside the window, not because he was
downhearted, but because Wen Tao was sitting next to me. If he didnt look outside the
window, he would see Wen Tao being brash and noisy, and he did not want to see him like
that.

Later I woke up after sleeping again, feeling someone covering me with some clothes. I felt two
people fighting quietly. Someone said, I like Lin Lin, no I love her. I will tell her. Before then,
you better conduct yourself with dignity. I wanted to open my eyes but the sleeping god was
more magical than the gossip god. I fell deeply asleep again.

In the morning when I woke up, I thought of the words from last night. I didnt know if they were
real or fake. I suddenly hoped that they were true, because I vaguely remembered that this
voice was Fang Yukes voice. It was different from the tone that Wen Tao had used when he
confessed his love. I unexpectedly felt happy, as if a gap in myself was about to be filled, and a
few dreams were going to be made perfect.

It was a pity that this was only hope. I was unlikely to be so foolish as to ask about the result.
One time of foolishly declaring my love was enough.

So I could only lament. I knew I liked Fang Yuke but even I didnt know when my feelings had
begun to rise. Was it when he taught me swimming? Was it when he sent me medicine? Was it
when he helped me study for the tests? Was it when he accompanied me to watch the
fireworks? It seemed, we had been together for too long, so long that I had forgotten to ask
myself we would spend so much time together.

personally undertake. Consider this from an authors standpoint. It means that if you feel

Chapter 35- Living Up to Summer Vacation (2)


When we reached our hometown, Mr. Tan, the Bureau Chief of Education of our small town,
personally received us, even brimming with passion as he gave some speeches: Yesterday,
you were proud of your hometown, but now, your hometown is proud of you and stuff like that.
The news video camera of the small town kept flashing past our eyes. Every time it flashed
before me, I would stand upright and still as I made my body rigid. When it flashed to my side, I
would return to being bored, with a lifeless look in my eyes. Thus, on TV, whenever my front
view was shown, you would see me rouse to vigorous action, but when you saw my side view,
my energy would immediately deplete and become depressed.

The mission for our first day was to return to our old school and give speeches to the students
about to go into junior year and prepare them for the Gaokao (Chinese SAT). The academic
atmosphere of our little town was extremely prosperous. Summer vacation right before the
Gaokao was practically the third term of school.
As I passed by their classroom, I saw their tables had a pile of textbooks and review materials.
I laughed like a pervert. That type of even a submissive daughter-in-law will one day become
a domineering mother-in-law [1] feeling as I saw raised eyebrows and exhaling moods, made
me feel very satisfied.

When we set foot in the auditorium, I saw a ring shaped lectern on the stage. Offstage were
the dense mass of juniors. Senior brother Yu personally made a speech at this meeting, saying
some things that sounded like recruiting lines: Peking University is not a dream. When he
finished, the applause offstage sounded like thunder, as they changed beyond recognition.
Thus I took it that I had hidden myself well. The encouragement class finished, and then Senior
Bro Yu warmly invited students to question him at will. Seeing the full house of heads, I
comfortably leaned on the back of a chair, watching everyone interact.

I thought about how obscure and unknown I had been back in high school. Many people didnt
know my name, and luckily the school didnt know as well otherwise they would have carved
my name onto the humiliation pillar

A girl wearing glasses stood up and asked: Right now, the most difficult thing for me is
English. I always feel theres not enough time, and that I cant remember so many terms. Do
you guys have any secret know-hows?

A senior sis sitting in the middle, passionately stood up to reply: To remember terms, you must
make use of every second and every inch. Before, when I was drying my hair or waiting for the
bus, I would always bring a English handbook with me. With time, I became like a sponge, able
to cram everything in.

I suddenly remembered that this senior sis was also the one who had started all the rumors, hit
the shuttlecock, fished out a English handbook, and then rallied it back. She had never
neglected exercising or learning, and she was also the leading scholar at the time who we
could not touch. Towards her extorting, I thought that this whole lifetime, I was afraid of unable
to reach that boundary. We were two separate people, and two different types of people.
Beside me sat hidden dragons and crouching tigers. I should bring my wooden stool and go
downstage to sit downstage.

Wen Tao who sat next to me, quietly asked: Are you very appreciative?

I sneered: I am currently depressed. I will forever maintain a gap with you people who are full
of knowledge and experience. For example, you guys know how to say things like: With time, I
became like a sponge, able to cram everything in, but if it were me, I wouldnt know how to
say things like that.

Wen Tao asked: Then what would you say?

I would say: Time is like cleavage. Even if you squeeze, you will still have a lot.

Wen Tao howled with laughter despite his image. The senior sis thought that she had said
something wrong and panicked, as she turned her head around to look at him. As for Wen Tao,
he still twitched as he lay on the table, unable to control himself. Ru Ting and Fang Yuke at
the other side, had probably heard my words. Ru Tings whole face thoroughly went red. Only
Fang Yuke was completely calm and collected as he twirled a pen in his hands, with a shallow
smile on his lips. Fang Yuke had gotten used to my way of saying things early on, so he was
able to keep his calm in the face of the unexpected. This was the benefit of getting used to
something.

In the midst of the orderly questioning, I couldnt help but sigh with feeling at the speedy lives
of all these high schoolers. Most of the questions were XX do you have any know-alls for
XX?. This really made it hard for the few science masters degrees students and the students
who had to stake everything to think of themselves at that time, and the shortcuts they used for
literature and language. Suddenly, someone asked: Is Zhou Lin Lin here?

My heart immediately sank. Could it be possible that I had owed someone money in the past
and forgot to return it? How come someone remembered my name at this time? I stood up and
nodded, to show that the untalented me was humbly here.

He seemed like a naughty little demon, as he cheerfully said, when he saw me stand up: I
heard that your grades in junior year were very unstable, so how did manage to exhibit your
best moments in the most crucial moment? And are you used to Peking University? Have you
found a boyfriend?

Heaven always gave me the hardest questions. For example, in this public place with
numerous people, in broad daylight, there was actually someone who had asked about my
lovelife. And did something about unstable grades have to emphasized like this?!

I maintained my elegance: Thank you for this Junior Bros concern. I will answer these
questions one by one. First, about expressing yourself. Does everyone want to hear the truth
or the lies?

The people downstage said, Truth!

I laughed, satisfied. The feeling of controlling people like this was really not bad. No wonder so
many people wanted to run for the President of the Student Union: The truth is, at the time, my
brain only had one thought: After I finish testing, I will be free! Then, I can play mahjong all
night and no one will care about me. It was this thought that kept me going until the end. When
everyone tests, do not excessively ponder things like what-if. If you really test badly you cant
worry about it. The first principle for lazy people is: Do not let things that have not happened
disturb you.

Everyone downstage laughed. The atmosphere was full of amiableness.

I continued: The second principle of a lazy person is: Do not worry about questions that you
can answer with instinct. For example, the answer to whether I have adapted to Peking Uni is~
Adaptation is a persons instinct. There are hard parts, but the basis of adapting is whether you
can innovate, and whether you can surpass everyone else. Some people in Peking Uni who
have been there for at least a month and less than a year will adapt to their surroundings. But
many other people will stop and be in an identical state during all four years. That is stopping to
adapt. But after some people adapt, they even have to exploit themselves of the schools
resources and change their environment, and change themselves. This type is the second
state. Unfortunately, I am a slow and patient life form, and I am the type that needs a year to
adapt, so we cannot discuss what type I really am.

The audience was very quiet. I satisfiedly reached the subject I did not want to talk about most:
The third question is on my personal sex life. Just now, this curious younger schoolmate
asked in a confused state of mind, so this older sister will just have to think with a confused
state of mind. The third principle of a lazy person: If I dont go over, the mountain must come
over. Once the celestial peach blossoms [2] to fall down like rain, then everything will be all
right..

Everyone enthusiastically applauded. I had completed my mission so I sat down.

Wen Tao looked at me like he was seeing me for the first time: Springboard, you really know
your stuff!

You would believe even such a con?! Besides the sentence: Just now, this curious younger
schoolmate asked in a confused state of mind, so this older sister will just have to think with a
confused state of mind which came from the bottom of my heart, the rest were all fabricated.
And you still believed it

At night, we all made plans to go get a meal. Because this afternoon at the conference, I was
going to make a special appearance, I was arranged to be at the same table as Bureau Chief
Tan. Fang Yuke was the university presidents grandson, and the Bureau Chief seemed pretty

familiar with him, and Wen Tao was an esteemed guest so the three of us were arranged to sit
in the VIP region.

The Bureau Chief was a modest and unassuming old fellow. He personally poured wine and
drinks for everyone. When he got ot me, he even especially asked me: Do you want to drink
some wine or some other beverages? Today, I was in good spirit, but just when I wanted to
say wine, I saw Fang Yukes biting cold expression, and I obediently and timidly said, Ill just
drink a beverage. I am giving up wine.

Even though the Bureau Chief was an old fellow, he was a Zhou Botong [3] full of gossiping
energy.

What a cute old fellow. I tried to touch around the subject: In the past, I drank wine, and I
nearly destroyed someones life. I dont dare drink anymore.

Haha The old fellow laughed openly, his head working especially bright. I have a
grandson. Next year hell be a junior, and his nature seems a lot like you. His head doesnt
work that well, and he just doesnt like to study. Next time, Ill introduce him to you guys, and
you can help me keep an eye on him for his studies. Even if I ask you to be his private tutor, I
dont know whether you would do me the honor..

Rubbish, how can I not do you the honor? In this circle of people, you singled me out and
invited me, so Ive already been overwheeeelmed by favor from this superior. But, how is my
nature so poor quality? I think the only place it seems the same as your grandson is that we
dont love to study.

I laughed flatteringly: I really dont deserve so much praise. How does my head not work that
well..at the most, I like to jest. Frankly, I have never been a private tutor, and my grades in
high school were more dismal. It falls short of the senior sisters and brothers present today.
The most important part was that not even a previous drop of my summer vacation will be used
for your grandson. Instead, it will be used to squander money and waste time.

It doesnt matter, it doesnt matter. The old fellow promptly waved his hands, A person like
him just cant seem to settle down his temper. You dont need to give him any specialized help.
If there is time, just straighten him out. On the aspect of learning, as long as Xiao Ke [4] helps,
Ill feel at ease. While he spoke, he pointed at the nearby Fang Yuke.

Fang Yuke laughed: Tan Yi cant settle down so you give him to me to coach

Alas, I originally thought their family only had a literary reputation, but it turned out they were
also linked in countless ways with the government families..

I lowered my voice and said, Right now it is very common for love to emerge between an older
woman and younger man. Arent you afraid that Ill take a fancy for your little grandson?

The old fellows ears were sharp: Haha, dont worry. So long as he hardens his heart, I have
no objections.

Hey, I just said you were cute, but why did you begin to slander me? Am I such a low person?
What is called hardening your heart? This old woman is in great demand, okay?

Wen Tao laughed at the other end: Chief Tan, dont worry. Basically, your grandson wont go
onto that path. Theres me to go through first. As for hardening his heart, you can make me do
it.

I didnt expect that on the same day after we finished dinner, we would see the legendary Tan
Yi who had the same disposition as me. Tan Yi just happened to be finding the old fellow for
some matters. That was when he hurriedly let us talk alone to cultivate some emotions.

He was younger than me, and if I were sweet, I would call him a shota [5]. If I was in a crappy
mood, I would call him a bad child. But even if Tan Yi was hot, he definitely wouldnt reach the
rank of the most handsome boy in the school. And speaking of his badness, there would
definitely be a pure girl who would send him a love letter. In those days, people like Li Jun [6]
who were somewhat beautiful had not become popular yet. However, this child already had the
trend of drawing close to other people.

Are you the one who tested in with luck? Tan Yi picked at his eyebrows as he asked me.

Ahh, child, you have no manners. This older sis is not to be trifled with: Yep, I am the person
who got in with ease, and I am also the person who relied on God to get into Peking Uni.

You still dont have a boyfriend? Tan Yi looked at me with disdain.

The rumors from this afternoon sure traveled quickly. This was the concept of: Good things
dont travel out the door, while bad things travel for thousands of miles.

Dont worry, Im just going to be your private tutor, right? I wont disturb you. Even if I am going
to find a boyfriend, he has to be a male. I dont have any perverted notions.

Younger people were easier to get angry suddenly. Tan Yi immediately got furious: Speak
nicer for me.

I hated high official kids like this the most. Let alone, your grandpa isnt some super big
government official. This old woman has already gone to Beijing, while your grandfathers
education system cant even control this old woman.Why should I be afraid of you?

I laughed mischievously: Have you never noticed Fang Yukes formidable power? You cant
stand it just from my little petty words?

Tan Yi cautiously asked: You are very close with Xiao Ke bro?

Of course were close, were sooo close. Are you close with him? But, calling him Xiao Ke bro
makes it a lot too easy for other people to think of some impure images. You cant
be strange right?
What do you mean?

Alas, either the other person was too pure or I was just too mature. I could only say: My
meaning is, is your sexual orientation normal?

Sure enough, Tan Yi was infuriated, and he could only ferociously say: Say some cleaner
things for me. His merit was too inferior. How did his grandfather see anything similar between
him and me? How could someone like me, a bright lotus flower in the virtual human world,
compare with someone so clumsy in speech?

I didnt think that I would have to use these types of methods to make friends with this guy in
our first meeting. But an exchange of blows might lead to friendship. The later Tan Yi became
much easier to face. Basically, as long as I derided him, he would listen to me. In other words,
he was full of masochistic qualities.

Because of his grandfathers relationship, they made an exception and Tan Yi joined our travel
group.

The most important thing that they had to do within the next few days was to tour around the
textile production line and exhibition area. During the entire tour, whenever Ru Ting said
anything to Fang Yuke, Tan Yi would resemble a ghost. Then, he would unceasingly ask Fang
Yuke questions like, What should we look out for during the process of rinsing clothes? These
kinds of specific questions irritated Ru Ting to no end as she could not follow up with anything
else.

The gossiper in me was very restless and, finally, could no longer be restrained. Finding a
suitable timing, I called Tan Yi to one side, Do you have any animosity with Ru Ting? Did she
kill your father or steal your lover?

Tan Yi maintained a relaxed expression, There is neither animosity nor hated between us.

I hit his head, Finish saying whatever you want to say. Youve wet this aunts appetite. Are you
tired of living?

Tan Yi could only truthfully account, My family and brother Xiao Kes family are long time
family friends. Ever since I was young, I knew that Brother Xiao Ke does not like Ru Ting, but
he needs to take care of Ru Ting because of family issues. Alas, Brother Xiao Ke is so
pitiful

I shot him a glance, How do you know that he doesnt like Ru Ting? They are childhood
sweethearts and they spoil each other to death. Theyre so loving, always whispering sweet
nothings to each other. By separating this couple youre tearing them apart like Cowherd and
the Weaver, yknow?

Tan Yi arrogantly said, If Brother Xiao Ke really liked Ru Ting, they would have gotten
together long ago. Why would they still not be together even now?

Listening to Tan Yis answer, even though I didnt know whether it was true or not, I was
secretly delighted in my heart. If they were not together, did that mean that I had a little bit of
hope? Sigh, when did I fall into such a despairing situation?

Tan Yi leaned over to say, Do you like Brother Xiao Ke?

I anxiously waved my hand, What nonsense are you saying? Ive told you before, your familys
Brother Xiao Ke and I are very close thats all. We have nothing else going on

Then what did you have such a heated expression for? If you like him, I can help you. Overall,
youre not bad either.

I smiled wantonly, Really? I also feel that Im not that bad.

Tan Yi immediately pretended to faint, Actually, I was just speaking randomly.

Over the next few days, Tan Yi started to tease my by called me Xiao Kes Sister-in-law.
Even though listening to this title of address made me feel satisfied, I still acted aloof. I told him
to that calling me this was too low a standard. Furthermore, Ru Ting was still living, didnt he
see that she had been angered till her nose had already been crooked? Luckily, at the last
moment, Wen Tao received a phone call from Beijing. He had to conduct an interview with a
celebrity and had to fly back to Beijing. If not, Wen Tao would also beat this joker up.

The following night, the group of us suddenly had a keen interest and wanted to go to the food
stall at the Li guesthouse not far from here. Unfortunately, upon walking out of the guesthouse,
we realised that in the middle of summer, it started to rain outside. There were not many
umbrellas at the guesthouse so we paired up to share an umbrella. When it reached my turn,
Senior Brother Yu said, There arent enough umbrellas. Xie Duan Xi, you and Zhou Lin Lin
should take the umbrella and go first. The rest of them will follow me in a while and well take a
taxi over.

Since it was a seniors instruction I could find no reason to reject it and could only go off. In my
heart, I just prepared for the road ahead to be awkward.

The rain drip-dropped lightly unto the top of the umbrella as Xiao Xi and I walked shoulder to
shoulder. This was something that I had wished for in the past but now, aside from wanting to
sigh, there was no longer that kind of imagined joy.

It was Xiao Xi who first opened his mouth, Lin Lin likes Yuke?

I sighed, No, dont I like you?

Xiao Xi smiled knowingly, Being able to say this now shows that you no longer like me.

The two of us jumped over a puddle together. It appeared that I had nothing to retort because
when I said dont I like you?, it was the equivalent of didnt you eat rice with meat and
vegetables today?. Lighthearted and casual, neither warm not hot, without mixing in any
moodiness.

Xiao Xi continued to say, Now Tan Yi calls you sister-in-law, the feelings you currently have
are clear for everyone to see, youve fallen for him. That time, when you said you liked me, do
you know why I looked at Fang Yuke and then looked back at you? Because I felt that you
were feuding children; you liked each other but you didnt know and even wanted to pull me
down to drown with you
At that point, I really didnt like him The more I spoke, the lighter I felt.

Xiao Xi smiled, Just because you didnt like him at that point, doesnt mean that you wont
admit it now. Hehe. Many times, when we fall in love, we dont even know it ourselves. We will
be disturbed by many things, thinking that a heart flutter from one moment when one is
emotionally moved means that they are in love. We forget the person at our side who is
indulging us as our heart moves for another person. You say that at that point you had not
fallen for Yuke, then why did you dislike Ru Ting from the very beginning until now?

Many people do not like Ru Ting because she is too arrogant. Also, her lifestyle is too
luxurious. We just hate rich people.

Are you certain that its because you hate rich people and not because shes with Yuke?

Hold up, the sentence before the sentence before, did you just say liked each other? It
looked like my reaction speed would always be slower by others by two steps.

Dimples appeared on Xiao Xi, Yes, thats what I said. Yuke likes you.

When Tan Yi said Fang Yuke did not like Ru Ting, I thought he was just voicing a childish
personal opinion and treated it as a joke. However, if Xiao Xi said it then it was not the same.
Impossible the one he likes is Ru Ting.

For the many things that you dont understand, you will get the answers if you ask. Why put
yourself through suffering by contemplating all on your own?

I lowered my head and didnt say a word. The answer that Xiao Xi had given me was too
shocking. It shocked me until my heart was about to leap out of my chest.

Xiao Xi added on, Tomorrow is the 18th, Yukes birthday. Ill remind you out of friendship.

I was like a fish in the sea, my mouth kept opening and closing but not a sound came out.

The best birthday gift on his 20th birthday~~ you should think about it. Xiao Xi was full of
interest as he looked at my expression that was shocked dumb.

At the food stall, I urgently pulled Xiao Xi to sit down, my eyes had already looked over to
where Fang Yuke was. If he liked me then he should have said so earlier. Being such a
tsundere (cold outside, hot inside) as he sat so far away, how was I supposed to ask? Could it
be that he didnt like me? Was Xiao Xi actually blind?

I was at a lost as I scratched my head, my face full of grievance as I stared at the food on the
table wordlessly.

Tan Yi looked at my appearance and moved closer to ask, Sister-in-law, your face is so black.
Could it be that Brother Xiao Ke bullied you?

I boldly nodded my head.

Tan Yi ran over to Fang Yukes table, saying to Fang Yuke, sister-in-law says you bullied her
so shes very troubled now.

Fan Yuke lifted his head to look at me, then looked back at Tan Yi, You should tell her to tidy
up her hair that is standing up. Otherwise, it really looks like Ive whipped her and bullied her.

I glared at him. Sigh, how could he like me? Were there people who were so cruel to the ones
they loved?

I turned my head to ask Xiao Xi, Could your eyesight be blurry. We have an antagonistic
relationship where we always quarrel and abuse each other. Is this what you call liking?

Xiao Xi smiled, Actually, if you want to achieve you goals its very simple. You just need to
follow my lead.

I asked, How can I do so?

Xiao Xi lifted his hand to tidy up the hair that was standing, Just smile at me.

Wont I look like an idiot then?

Do you wish to know what hes feeling in his heart or not?

I quickly nodded my head.

Lets put on a play of an illicit relationship. Ever since you said those ambiguous words to me
at my house that time, this guy has ignored me. Since the jar is already broken, I shall sacrifice
myself to get your two together and treat it as an achievement.

You dont have to test this. If you want to talk about an illicit relationship, Wen Tao is the
specialist. But he didnt even say anything to me. Although they fought for a bit, I cant confirm
that its because of me that they fought.

How can you put me and Wen Tao on the same level? Im someone that you openly
confessed to; Wen Tao is someone that you openly rejected.

I felt that he made a lot of sense, so I smiled deceitfully, How can we make it illicit? Hey, hey
do I have to hug you?

Xiao Xi looked at me as if I was a pervert, Are you trying to use this opportunity to eat my
tofu?

Oh my, who wants to eat your tofu? Although half a year ago I did think of it

Xiao Xi smiled warmly, opening the peanuts shells one by one and putting the peanuts on my
plate, Begin: Illicit relationship

I looked at him and said in a matter of fact way, Xiao Xi, I really cant see it. You really have an
innate gift! But of course, I wont lose to you. I picked up the rough napkin on the table and
started to clean Xiao Xis clean lips.

Xiao Xi harshly smiled, We havent even crossed the river yet and you want to destroy the
bridge?

I laughed with a haha, Chinas Social Science culture was always built upon the word
destroy, Im merely conforming to the trend.

Xiao Xi maintained his smiled, Want to drink some alcohol?

I shook my head, I swore to Fang Yuke that I wouldnt drink alcohol anymore.

Xiao Xi sighed, How can you not act in a play? If you dont drink now, then what are you
waiting for? After saying this, Xiao Xi said to the water, Get us two bottles of beer!

I guiltily looked over at Fang Yuke and realised his face was was pulled into a frown that was
as long as the news anchor on the entertainment show Extremely 6+1.

I immediately surrendered, No I cant, I cant I have to mean what I say.

Xiao Xi continued to maintain his peaceful face as he used the napkin to wipe the bottle of
beer, Without destruction you cannot construct. Hell still be able to do something later if your
heart hurts.

After he finished speaking he helped me wipe the bottle of beer, saying lightly into my ear, No
matter what, on his birthday, I must gift you away. After listening, I couldnt help but to
continue being wanton with him? I dashed in as I laughed.

The one who ran over first was Tan Yi, Sister-in-law, you dont abide by the rules of a lady.

Xiao Xi laughed as he said to Tan Yi, I never married, she hasnt married off, how has she not
abided by the rules of a lady?

Tan Yi pouted, he didnt know how to retort, aggrievedly walked back to Fang Yuke as he
watched him. Fang Yuke lowered his head, as if he didnt hear anything.

I was a little bit discouraged, Could it be that our acting is too fake?

Xiao Xi draped his arm over my shoulder, Thats because we havent increased our efforts in
hurting the heart. Smile for this older brother.

I looked at the hand on my shoulder, dont you feel like we look like an a-dul-ter-ous-cou-ple?

Just as I finished saying this, I saw Fang Yuke walk over, fiercely pulling open and chair and
sitting at our table.

Xiao Xi blinked his eyes at me, Lin Lin, after you cut your hair short, youve become
increasingly pretty

Really? I laughed from the bottom of my heart. It must be because Xiao Xi was afraid that I
would leak out the plan that he began to continue to battle all by himself.

Towards a girl like you with a good personality who doesnt bother about the trifling stuff, its
best to marry home.

Flattery, flattery. I smiled until I was grinning from ear to ear.

Its better for you not to be close with Wen Tao. How would he ever be suitable for a fairy like
you.

My mouth was going to curve up beyond my ears, I wont be close, I wont be close. You dont
even know who I like

Fang Yuke suddenly stood up. He was spitting anger as he said to me, Get over here.

I obediently stood up, secretly giving Xiao Xi a wry smile, lowering my head to follow Fang
Yuke out.

It was pouring non stop outside, Fang Yuke put out his hand to wave for a taxi. A taxi came
over and he stuffed me into the taxi.

Fang Yuke told the Taxi Driver, Ill trouble you to go to the Cheng Cai Kindergarten on the
outskirts.

I asked, What are we going all the way there for in the middle of the night? You want to
commit murder?

Fang Yuke nodded his head, You guessed it. I feel that youre too noisy. After killing you, the
scenery will be clean and quiet.

I didnt say a word, I saw that Fang Yuke was really angry. Although that I was happy that he
was jealous, I was worried and honestly a little apprehensive. To me, would he say those
words that all women dreamed of hearing? Was everything real? Argh, in case of a moment of
passion what would we do if we immediately rolled on the bed? I promised my mother I would
bring my purity back home. However, if it was really given away, I was too embarrassed to say
it. Oh no, I the underwear I wore today was not sexy enough.

I continued to twist and turn as I meditated in my own world, unknowingly reaching the
destination.

Cheng Cai kindergarten was my kindergarten when I was young. I havent been here in so
long, the kindergarten had rebuilt and extended, and it was no longer the same as the one in
my memory. However, I couldnt tell which parts of it were different specifically. After all, it had
already been fifteen or sixteen years. My memory was already hazy.

I did not understand why he wanted to drag me to this place, I was also too afraid to ask.

The metal gate was locked and we could not enter. We could only stand under the roof to hide
from the rain. Actually, I wanted to tell him that if he wanted to enter, I wouldnt mind jumping
over the gate with him.

He glanced at me, Dont think about jumping over the gate. Its too dangerous, and a girl
should not be doing this kind of things.

I lowered my head, Dont you always say that I dont seem like a girl? Why would you
suddenly say that I am a lady?

Fang Yuke looked towards the heavy rain, as if he could dig out some unknown items from the
end of its blackness, Because a long long time ago, you also did not treat me as a boy.

Huh?

The rhythm of the rain slowed down, gently pulling at our heartstrings.

Fang Yuke turned his body towards me, We were once classmates for a month at this
kindergarten. Inside this kindergarten you hugged me and on that day you also let me marry
you home.

Huh?

Do you think I am going to marry you now?

Huh?

Tan Yi called you sister-in-law, but you also did not get angry. Just now what Xiao Xi did was
intentional, you guys were testing me. Actually, you also like me, right or wrong?

Its so weird that it would rain in the summer, I dont think there would be thunderstorms
right

You also like me, right?

The peanuts back at the food stalls were really salty, I feel so thirsty.

I like you.

Ever since the times of Buddha, I had to climb over countless numbers of mountain ranges,
pass through countless tunnels, and wade through countless rivers. After that I had to go
through smoking rain, put on lotus perfume before I could finally reach this destination.

It was at this point that time stood still. I could almost hear the faraway sound of rain dropping
on the leaves in the lotus pond in kindergarten, as I looked at the meridians of the slender and
lucid lotus leaves, and smelled the fragrance of a lotus that was about to bloom

Fang Yuke looked into my eyes, Today is the night of the 17th, and it is 23:59 (TLN: So its
11:59 PM). I told you that I like you. Can you tell me your answer at midnight on the 18th? Ive
already given you an entire day to think about it.
I completely blushed, squeezing out the words, I really am thirsty

Fang Yuke smiled, gently drawing me into his embrace, Is it really that hard to say that
sentence for the both of us?

As I smelled the faint smell of shampoo that was coming from Fang Yukes body, I closed my
eyes and felt the warmth of his arms. In my heart, I could hear the sound of a clock ticking
away for every year, every day, every minute, and every second. I secretly opened my eyes,
as I looked towards the black night and the lightly dancing raindrops. I gently said beside his
ear, Fang Yuke, Happy birthday.

Also, I like you too.

My very pesky dividing line

The first time I met her, she was catching little green bugs and secretly putting them in the hats
of her little child classmates. When she was discovered by me, she opened her eyes wide like
she was about to threaten to me. I didnt pay attention to her, and I didnt warn those poor
unfortunate people.

At that time, my parents were arguing over a divorce. To let me be less influenced by all this,
granny especially sent me to a different kindergarten in a little town. I was very precocious.
Perhaps it had come out from an environment where the adults were always fighting. I am
someone who likes peace and quiet, and who will stay in a place where no one else is, like
playing with rocks or looking at the sky. Mother always said I had mild signs of autism, and
tried to make me happier. But wasnt she the person who- no matter how much she looked into
the mirror and coaxed herself to be happy, no genuine happiness had bloomed?

I was a transfer student, so I could safely enjoy other people being strange and cold to me.
Because I was unfamiliar, no one said I was a freak. They only left me more alone, thats all. I
unexpectedly assimilated into this noisy big environment, and enjoyed my peace.

The second day, she came to seize my clothes. She wanted me to be one of her soldiers. The
reward was that I could borrow her most precious submachine gun and touch it for a moment. I
still ignored her. I was not fond of noisy people.

The third day, she put bugs into my rice bowl and proudly looked at me and laughed. I grabbed
the bugs and put them into her bowl, trying to agitate her, but I still didnt speak to her. Ill admit
that at the time, I was provoking her. After I finished, I also felt that I was a pretty boring
person. She didnt speak and only glared her food and stared blankly. Then, she lifted her fat
hand: Reporting to the teacher! I thought she would tell on me, so I coldly looked at her. Girls
loved to tattletale the most, so she might as well be a little more idiotic and accuse me in the
moment. The teacher who wore sharp pointy high heels slowly walked over and sweetly said,
Zhou Lin Lin classmate, is anything wrong?

Reporting to the teacher, today, the uncle that made the food didnt clean the rice properly.
There are bugs in it. As she said this, she clasped the bugs in her chopsticks and waved them
around in the air for the teacher to see. The teacher was a young woman who had just
graduated from school. When she saw the live bugs, she got so scared that she became pale.
The classmates around us still hadnt understood the circumstances, so when they heard the
screams, they all began to cry.

Unintentionally, we became a team, messing with the teacher and our classmates~~

Before school got out, I waited for my granny to come pick me up. I remember the weather on
that day exceptionally clearly. It was the rainy weather that typically came before a typhoon.
The communication around the whole little town was paralyzed.The kindergarten teachers
notified all the parents they could notify. This meant that the school vacated the studentss
beds and lodging, and crammed them together, so that the parents would not have to come
and take the risk to pick us up.

But I still stubbornly stood in the eaves of the school entrance and waited for my granny. When
I was little the person I was most dependant on was my granny because I thought my parents
had abandoned me, and did not want me anymore. If my granny, who loved me the most also
did not want me anymore then I had nothing else to recall fondly.

The rain fell extremely hard. It penetrated the thick hanging screens, as I anxiously waited. The
teacher urged me to return, and said that she had already informed my granny, and that it
would be too inconvenient to come over. So she wanted to make me feel at ease and live here

for a night. I suddenly became unruly and cried while calling out for my grandma. Because I
was afraid.

She walked over, and hugged me: All right, all right. Tonight, Ill sleep with you. Dont be
afraid, dont be afraid. When she finished, she suddenly hummed a nursery rhyme: Rockabye,
rock into the grandma bridge, grandma calls me a good darlingI gradually stopped crying,
and wiped my face as I crouched under the eaves and watched the rain. Her soft and immature
clear voice was like that rain. In my heart, holes one after another were chiselled.

At night, sure enough, she lay with me on the same bed. She definitely didnt think that after a
certain numbers of years when I entered her life again, we would begin again from the same
room. But at that moment, she ran to the outskirts of the dorm and told her friends that she had
fallen in love with a boy. It was a pity it was not me.

On the bed, she hugged me like she was hugging a doll. I smelled a hint of perfumed soap,
that was just as fresh and clean as she was. She pouted and told me that in fact, she was not
here to accompany me. She was also afraid, especially of typhoons that could cause power
outages and water shortages. With someone that would let her hug her, she was no longer
afraid too.

She even secretly thanked me, and said that in the future, if she could change into a man, she
would marry me. I did not know if the change into meant in her next lifetime, or if she had
mistaken my gender. Could my eyelashes that were a little long and my eyes that seemed big
really confuse people into being unable to distinguish myself between a girl and boy? It was
only that I had never thought that ten years later, she still had her own unique methods to
propose to me. I still didnt know how to face this. Everytime, when she would carelessly say
those kinds of things,I would really envy her. I wasnt someone who was very sensitive, but
every time I heard her say these things, I would always get extremely nervous. As for her, she
lived in her own happy world, free and unfettered. She easily controlled my thoughts and made
me feel very out of control. Thus, I envied her. Wen Tao wasnt wrong. I was a coward. I had
too many misgivings, and I worried too much about personal gains and losses which made
many opportunities slip by, one by one. If only I could learn from her bizarreness. When she
proposed to me, I should have immediately agreed and then pulled her to the civil
administration office to register our marriage. This way, she would never joke in front of me
randomly, and provoke me, right?

At night when we slept, she was very peaceful, but it was just that she drew me towards me.
Being with her after she had tugged at the quilt so much was not quite the same. I didnt know
if she had been more obedient because she had someone to hug. But, in the morning when we
got up from bed, her hair still stood up like a birds nest. She confusedly looked at me like she
was looking at an alien.

In the next few days, I didnt enjoy the delight of being a loner anymore. I followed behind her,
watching her fume towards the toy gun that she stole from the neighbor that she had broke. At
that time, I wanted to grow some more abilities to eliminate many malfunctions. Later, I fell in
love with computers, and when I helped others fix bugs one after another, I would think of her
at that time, when she was thwarted. I had prepared for so many years but only now did she
want me to help her buy a computer. At that time, she held a lofty A disk in front of the
computer, so dumb she didnt know what to do. Later, she would toot her horn and pretend she
was an experienced person now. In fact, I was worried whether the thick-skinned her would
investigate when I had begun this, and so on. Fortunately she didnt, and we could probably

wait to discuss this until after marriage. Hehe. In hindsight, the trembling appearance she had
towards Ru Ting when she treated me to a meal at the canteen, made me really mad.
Everytime she would yell that she was a fearless and unequalled King Kong beautiful maiden,
but in front of other beauties, she would display an inferior attitude. This type of self-abasement
made her meticulously curry favor with other people, as she catered to the other person. I
didnt like her like that. No matter what she became, I did not care. Even if a big bump grew on
her head, she was still the girl in my heart. I didnt even mind whether she grew up to become
an immortal deity or a country bumpkin. When we were on the bus, she stubbornly said to
emphasize the beautifulness in ones heart and to furthermore, detest bogus people and
things. I really wanted to assist her, but every time I was on the verge of speaking my mind, it
changed into jeering. Maybe I had also become stupid. When I was with her, my IQ was also
reduced to the very lowest. With that said, ever since I bought her that computer, she did not
find me to fix her computer or whatnot. This made me feel very rejected. If I had known it would
be like this earlier, I would create some bugs in her computer. As I thought like this, I wondered
if I was becoming an idiot just like her

I stayed at this kindergarten for only a month. My mother felt that there were not enough
qualified teachers at the kindergarten, so she transferred me back to the original kindergarten.
Adults will never understand what little kids want. There were no differences between the 80s
kindergarten. She only wanted to create some affairs. At that time, my mother was too lonely.
She always thought of weird things to do.

In the beginning, I wouldnt agree no matter what. I had already adapted to this area. Suddenly,
the idea of a sociable life was a novelty to me. Capturing the bugs with her and making
mischief, and charging into battle with her, I was very content. This was to the extent that I no
longer relied on my granny so much. Every time my granny came to pick me up, I would
always feel a thread of reluctance. Contrarily, when her parents came to pick her up, she would
always drop everything and throw herself into their embrace. Being with her in this place was
just as trying as getting imprisoned. She was indeed not fit to stay within a fenced area. Thus,
when I was in high school, and saw that her performance result would unexpectedly go up to
the top 20th place, I felt like a mishap had occurred. Had I underestimated her, or
underestimated Gods power?

The strength of adults will always be stronger than that of children. Not a lot of time had passed
after I transferred schools before I moved again. Now we were even farther away from that
kindergarten district. I was in a new kindergarten and I also slowly began to learn how to fit in. I
learned how to talk to other children, but I couldnt seem to be as delighted as I had been in the
past. But no matter what, I gradually grew up, and I also gradually became more open and
optimistic, as I became willing to make friends with others. For example, my neighbor Xiao Xi,
and Ru Ting who moved in later. Xiao Xi was a sensible big brother. As a child, he knew what
he wanted to study and what he wanted to become. Our ideals as children were tricking the
adults into thinking that we all wanted to become scientists, mathematicians and so on when
we grew up. Actually, not even we could distinguish definitively between a scientist and a
mathematician. Xiao Xi had already decided he wanted to become a doctor, a surgeon
especially, an angel clothed in white who helped the dead and healed the injured. However,
the day before the Gaokao, because of his beloved girl, he gave up on his dream of going to a
medical school,and chose to go into economy. He only wanted to fight alongside her. In the
end, this woman flew with another boy towards America, leaving behind a lonely soul, who
recalled the past fondly, laden with grief. Would I be like Xiao Xi?

Ru Ting had always loved to follow me around ever since she was little, just like how I had
been willing to follow her backside [Lin Lin] around in the past. Even though children should

begin to mature in elementary school, I still mischievously put bugs into her [Ru Ting] bowl.
She was so scared that she began to cry incessantly, her throat almost going hoarse. I didnt
want to apologize either. This was the first time granny hit me because of her. She said that
our family owed their family a great deal. If it hadnt been for their help, maybe I wouldnt have
a father. I hated the way adults handled these kinds of things. We engrave another persons
goodness in our memory, but we cannot allow this to make us petty and low. Every time we
had dealings with them, and treated them as an honored guest, it all made me exhausted.
Putting bugs into her bowl was the only way I had to challenge her. If she was like her, who
met the enemy head-on, perhaps we would really have hope of becoming relatives by marriage
just like how granny had always thought. Thus, my girl was unique and unmatched. In the first
year of university, she and Ru Ting fought in my dorm. Ru Ting hysterically cried, while I only
sympathized with her. However, when I saw Lin Lin stubbornly wiping her tears, I felt that my
heart had sank. I really wanted to imagine her hugging me when we were little and telling me:
All right all right. Unfortunately, in front of everyone, she said she liked Xiao Xi. When her
candid expression looked at Xiao Xi, with such purity, it made me fall into an abyss. She was
always more courageous than me at expressing her feelings, so I still envied her. Actually,
when I was helping her cram for computer class, I really wanted to tell her that the few days I
had with her were the happiest days of my twenty years. I saw her glare at me, offended and
half confused, as she asked me another question very carefully. After that, beaten and
exhausted, she fell onto my bed. When she fell onto my bed, her right hand would still grasp
her pen tightly. When I forgot to take it out for her, her pen would fall onto my bed and draw an
ink and wash painting. Unfortunately, she could not see her masterpiece, because I had never
dared to let her see it. If I let her see it, perhaps I would be unable to stop myself from
confessing to her: The ink on the blankets can no longer be washed out, just like how the deep
marks she had left on my heart could no longer be wiped away. When she pretended she had
an extremely lofty manner and told Xiao Xi, she wanted to be his sunshine, and she wanted to
dispel the shadow in his life, I could only shudder and ask them to leave sooner, including Ru
Ting who had just cried, completely smashed. Because if this were to continue on, I was
unable to ascertain if I would cry, emotionally unrestrained.

When I was in elementary school, I didnt see her at all. I thought that I would never be able to
see her again in this whole lifetime. When I thought of her facial features, it became more and
more blurred. I was no longer sure if she had a small birthmark on her forehead or if she liked
to pout her mouth. I only kept remembering that scene when she hugged me and said, Its
okay, its okay. Basically, I had even thought that I would forget this history. I thought this was
only a long theatrical interlude in my long life. But how come every time I heard someone sing
Rockabye, rockabye onto the treetop, I would still be laden with grief and expectations for no
reason?

In middle school, my parents became reconciled with one another. Our whole family moved
into a new neighborhood. Even though my next door neighbor, Shan Shan was older than me
by quite a few years, he still became one of my good friends. He liked to collect every kind of
submachine gun. He even said that when he was little, his guns were always getting stolen.
Whenever he saw a gun now, he would strangely want to grab it back. He always blamed his
neighbor from his childhood for being too powerful which made him grow this eccentricity. At
the time, the first person I thought of was her. She had a unique state of mind towards guns. I
blurted and asked what that person was called. My heart began to move emotionally, like I had
buried something inside extremely deep that suddenly wanted to break out and see the light
again. Whan Shan Shan spoke her name, my heart beat like a drum. I insisted on making him
let me see that persons picture. Shan Shan looked at me like he was seeing a weirdo. I knew I

was abnormal, but there was no other way. She was right. Maybe emotions were a type of
obsession. For the sake of this obsession, I was trapped in a quagmire. Until now, it had not
been pulled out. I looked at the simple smile in the picture, still dressed in the uniform of
elementary school. Her incisors had just fallen out, and her new teeth hadnt grown in yet. She
laughed wantonly towards Shan Shan whose face was covered in mud. Great, great, I took the
photo away like I had discovered a baby. Then, I put it in the innermost pocket of my wallet.
When I was feeling very bad, I would always pull it out, just like a sedative, just like chicken
soup. After I looked at it, my heart would be at ease.

From Shan Shan, I found out about all the schools she had on her list for high school. I
stopped myself from secretly going to find her. I thought of this for so many years. I definitely
could no longer recognize her, but I still took a leave of absence from my school, and
stubbornly went to her school. I worriedly searched in her classroom. At that moment, class
dismissed so the classroom was full of heads that were clumped together. I nervously scanned
everyones figure in my line of sight, but I still did not find her. I sadly thought, could it be
possible that I was pursuing a phantom? Maybe she was no longer the person she was from a
long time ago and I was only living in my own created dream. When the class bell rang, I
prepared to disappear from this place. Outside the classroom window, I saw a sleeping face
that faced me. The breeze blew past as her bangs lightly swayed. The lines on her face were
not as resolute as before, with a few additional gentle curves. The class bell didnt influence
her at all. Her eyelids only slightly trembled. I worried that she would wake up soon, but she
was still just as quiet as she slept like an angel. I emotionally stood to the other side. That
distant dreamland was so real in a flash, almost as if I could reach it if I reached out my hand.
Her desk-mate suddenly woke her up and she woke up, frightened. When she saw that
everyone else was standing, and greeting the teacher, she also stood up, panicking. After she
sat down, she began to overturn trunks and boxes to seek her textbook. I really wanted to
laugh, and come closer to her to touch her hair. I wanted to hug her in my embrace. This was
the first time I soberly understood that this was called a stirring heart. This was love.

As I wandered aimlessly in her school, I suddenly felt that the whole sky had become sunny
and cloudless. The whole school had become close and dear as if the places where she had
been had become like paradise, emitting golden rays of light. Later, every week I would ride my
bike to her school. Sometimes I could watch her from afar. Sometimes I could only stroll
around in the school. My emotions towards this school far surpassed my emotions towards my
alma mater. I clearly knew when the first magnolia bloomed in this school and which tree had a
newly constructed swallow nest on it, as well as when she would laugh heartily to her hearts
content, as well as when she would be alone and distressed. Occasionally, I would go to their
canteen to eat and meet her mumbling to herself as she gorged herself like hungry African
people** who cut a sorry figure. Everyday, she would eat a chicken leg and a small platter of
red braised pork. Thus that time when she invited me to eat at the canteen, I ordered these few
dishes. She cleared it all off, like always.


**Okay guys, this is not meant to be racist at all. China is just more of a more frank culture and since there are very few foreigners compared to
the actual Chinese people, they typically believe in stereotypes (and lets face it, stereotypes are stereotypes because they are true most of the time.
NOT all the time.
The sad thing was that she had not recognized me, despite the fact that I stood in front of her,
watching her. She only silently walked past and then secretly said, Wow, did you see that hot
guy? to the person beside her. After the person beside her nodded, she said, How can you
be so calm when you see hot guys? I was practically on fire. I laughed. She always had ways
to make me laugh. Later, when her brains made a sudden turn, and she spoke corny jokes to
me, I always wanted to laugh a lot. But I still pretended I was very angry . She restlessly

admitted to committing a mistake. Even though I would admit that her ways were a little
strange, she indeed had her own exclusive means. She forever had no ways to make me
angry, even if she had explained the kissing matter in a hideous mess. I threatened her and
told her she could not drink in front of anyone else. I was afraid after she lost her self-control,
she would kiss someone else. I could not indulge her in this. I stared blankly watching her get
drunk two times. Every time she got drunk, she would torment me. The first time after she got
drunk, Ru Ting made me help her go to the supermarket to get something to drink, but I didnt
think that we would meet her. At that time, she and Xiao Xi would eat together every week. I
knew that it was impossible for them to be together. Sooner or later, she would have to face
this reality, but I had no way to let her know. I obviously knew the feeling of heartache. But I
still envied Xiao Xi. Jealousy is a terrible thing. When I saw her rush towards Ru Ting and get
angry, I also ignited. Perhaps, anger in the midst of bad things is contagious. I persevered in
telling her to apologizing without backing down, as if her retreat could make me feel better.
However, when she really retreated and bended down literally to apologize and pay the bills, I
stayed where I was. I saw the beeront he counter and I watched as she hurriedly sought her
wallet. I saw her dim-wittedly crying. I saw her weirdly dashing out. Then I knew that I could
never think of harming her. Because at the same time that I hurt her, I also hurt myself. Maybe
I was not yet conjoined with her, but she was my heart.

I tried to call her again and again. The ringtone rang over and over. But she didnt pick up. I
bumped into the wall out of my anxiety. When I thought of her sorry manner, the uneasiness I
felt was stirred yet again. So much so that I even called Xiao Xi and asked him if he knew
where she was. Xiao Xi was at a loss and said he did not know. My heart became more
panicky. At that moment, I had begun to expect that she would find Xiao Xi and cry to him. And
this was better than being alone. When the phone connected, my voice trembled as I asked
her where she was. I could only repeat my question. She was right. I had changed into a
recording machine. Ever since I met her, I had lost my logic, and I could not clearly ponder
over everything. This was really a bad habit. I accompanied her in drinking cans of beer. I
heard her speak of her romance, and her love at first sight as well as her disappointment and
frustration at her failure. As for me, I could only be the audience, as my heart trickled blood,
and yet was incapable of emitting a sound. When I took her home, she laid on the bed and
would not stop crying. One moment she would call her mommy, and the next, she would ask to
return home like a little child having tantrums. I could only hug her: Its okay, its okay. At the
most, Ill accompany you and go to sleep with you. Then, I sung Rockabye, Rockabye onto
the treetop to her. I was really like a fool, only knowing how to use what she had given to me
before to comfort her. I already had no other methods.

The second time she got drunk, the scene was already controlled. I did not think that she would
wantonly kiss me. After the kiss, she laid on the table, like she had done nothing. Only me, the
idiot was left, standing for a long time where I was. I could smell that soapy scent from our
childhood. I could smell that fragrance, despite the initial alcohol scent that almost concealed it.
She was like a monkey that hung on my body, lightly speaking words of endearment that only I
could hear. The instincts of a man made me feel a bit impetuous, but she wanted to take off my
clothes, completely lost. Shan Shan stood at the side, shocked. I let Shan Shan go home by
himself and then cajoled her, as I took her out of the seafood restaurant. Besides the seafood
restaurant was a guest house. The secretary enthusiastically walked towards me, causing me
to be in a difficult situation as I carried her and ran. If there werent any cab drivers that would
pick us up, I wanted to call a friend to ask them to pick us up, but I was afraid that she would
get hyped up in front of an audience. We walked like this, the summer breeze billowing. She
laid on my back. I was very blessed. Occasionally, she would nibble my ear, and seize my hair.

I was suffering from her ill treatment, so I could only yell at her: Youll regret it if you continue
on like this. She foolishly laughed and patted my face and said, I feel like I know you. Maybe
from a long long time ago. Before we had memories, we knew each other. My heart became
gentle and warm. No matter what she did, I no longer cared. Originally I wanted to pamper her.
If she didnt make a fuss how could I pamper her?

When we reached the dorm, she was singing and hopping loudly, as she told the whole world
that she had found a hot guy and they were about to sleep on the same bed. I didnt mind her
saying such things. I even wished I could make that into a reality. However, I only wanted her
to be sober so that this could really occur. When we were going into high school, I was
determined on going to visit my grandfathers school because I was sure that she would go
there. Finally, we were underneath the same blue sky. She chose liberal arts. I chose the
sciences. I knew that high school was not the time to get into a relationship and I did not wish
to influence her, and I did not hope for myself to get too influenced either, despite the
preparations I had done to go to the same university with her. One day, I saw her rant about
my honor rolls and notices in front of my achievement reports as if she was reading from an
obituary. I really wanted to laugh. She was always someone who played down everything and
was extremely witty. At the canteen, I saw her eating meat in big bites. Then, the next day,
pimples grew all over her face. She didnt care about fat in the least, so it seemed like it had
grown on someone elses body. I thought that she had prepared to walk towards a spoiled
direction. If this were to continued to be spoiled, no one would want her. Then, I could only
collect her and return home.

In high school, she helped someone else write a love letter, and the target just happened to
me. She planned to keep this matter secret forever. Because her love letter had been full of
vague erotic references. When she entrusted the letter to my friend, I laughed. At the time, I
thought she really wrote me a love letter, but when I opened it, I didnt only find that someone
elses name was on it, but the handwriting was also not hers. If I got an opportunity, I wanted
to read this love letter and tell her not to be so proud of herself, thinking that only she knew
about this matter.

In junior year, her grades were extremely unstable. Every time before the test, she would grab
little decks of cards and try to guess what her grade would be. The best time, she got 20th
place. The worst time when she got a high fever, she got 120th place. That day, her dad told
her not to test anymore, but she still wanted to. Her impulsiveness had probably been
stimulated by the teacher. Everyday when she studied, and crammed for computer class, her
expression was the same. After the Gaokao finished, I didnt think that she would test so well
and actually get into Peking Uni. I thought God was definitely helping us.

After the Gaokao, her mother called me, and I didnt even know what to say. I only knew how
to say yes. I was very grateful to Auntie for letting me take care of my daughter, secretly hoping
that she could give her daughter to me for a lifetime.

On the train, I was so nervous I didnt dare speak. I dumbly twirled my pen and dumbly looked
at a National Geographic magazine, and dumbly acted like a cold refrigerator. I didnt know
what kinds of words I should use, or what kind of an attitude I should use to talk to her. Thus I
pretended that I was so high and cold, just like the way she was when I first met her. In uni I
was still waiting for her, waiting for her to put down the armor that she wore with her exclusive
means.

I have been waiting for that day for 14 years. I have been waiting for her to call my name for 14
years. From the old ignorant me to the unyielding me, it has always been me alone on the
stage. But now, I formally invited her to walk alongside me onto my stage. I invited her to
dance with me. The song would be neverending, the curtains would never close.

Even after my life ends, my dancing partner will still be her.

Chapter 38- Cliche Misunderstandings Always Happen Coincidentally (1)


Cliche Misunderstandings Will Always Occur Coincidentally (1)

Ever since I was little, my dream was to be Sleeping Beauty. She didnt need to get up from
bed or go to school. Only her bed accompanied her for ten years. After she woke up, she could
even kiss my Prince and have more tens of years ahead of her. Even though Fang Yuke was a
poisonous tongued prince, he was still a prince, possessing all of the qualities of a Prince: First
of all, this pretty boy overlooked the wind like a jaden tree, distinguished and elegant. He fit the
appearance of little Won Bin. Secondly, this pretty boy was top notch at his studies, completely
invincible. Last, he came from a family with a literary reputation, with hereditary benefits such
as rank and wealth. In short, I had hooked onto a wealthy husband. I laughed, proud of myself.

I laid supine, on the bed in the guestbed, wiping at the saliva that fell from the corner of my
mouth as I foolishly laughed towards the ceiling. During summer vacation, it was a pity that all
my friends went swimming, and exploring, so I had no one to talk to. My rapidly expanding
state of mind was incapable of enjoying this with my dormmates, as I was unable to stop
myself from saying everything on my mind. I could only call my mother to announce the good
news. Ahh life was hard for this old woman. At long last, one affair had been done right. My
mother answered the phone and impatiently said, Arent you interning here? If you have
something to say then come over to say it. Im playing mahjong.

I laughed calculatingly like an evil person.

My mother was about to erupt: Do you think that calling doesnt cost money?!?! Do I have to
use my brains to protect myself from other people leaving bombs everywhere? Dont create
chaos. If I cant get good mahjong tiles, then Ill find you to calculate the bill!

Aww just like at my status at home. For a mahjong game, a daughter was about to be
assassinated.

However, I was feeling good so I wouldnt bother about this problem: Congratulations, in the
future youll have a handsome son-in-law.

The phone resounded with a BANG from the other end with ample strength. Then, quietness
emerged.

After a long time, she slowly said, Bring him home tomorrow.

Mother was indeed an impetuous person: Youre not afraid I wont lose face by bringing him
home immediately afterwards?

My ma exhausted her voice: Someone like you finally picked someone up back home, and Im
sooo happy. Who cares if it loses face?

Even though her words were very logical, seeing that it was from my mother, my heart still felt
a bit of shock: I dont have to bring him home. You know him. Its Fang Yuke. When I spoke
of this name, I had already flung my old mothers ear piercing words behind me. What I got
back instead, was pure happiness. In the past, I had not discovered, how liking someone could
be such a pleasant feeling.

At the other end, my old mother laughed even more wretchedly. Sure enough, old ginger was
hotter than young ginger [1]: How will my son-in-law escape my fingers? Haha
I couldnt help but sweat. After all she was still a highly conservative old woman.

My old mother suddenly used a solemn and grave tone of voice to tell me: If you let him go,
then dont come home anymore. Since youve dug up gold, then you must protect it well. You
havent lived for nothing all these years. When she finished, she put down the phone.

Finally, I had made Wen Taos description of one cannot sleep soundly in the endless night a
reality. The clock was already pointing to 3:00 but I still could not sleep. My passion sure
surged up violently. In the middle of the night, the aftermath of expressing my affections was
arriving late. The second day, when we gathered together, I was still sleeping in the hotel, until
I was pulled off of the bed. I opened my eyes and saw Fang Yuke. I thought I was still
dreaming beautifully, so I prepared to close my eyes and sleep more. Fang Yuke hastily seized
my face like he was holding onto a tiger skinned cat as he said, Dont sleep anymore, dont
sleep anymore. The sun is high in the sky. Everyones waiting for you.

I looked at him sluggishly, wondering if I had really become his girlfriend or not.

Fang Yuke saw I was not awake, and patted my head: Just now, I called you so many times,
but you wouldnt wake up. If I hadnt grabbed your hotel card, we would have all thought you
died by suicide. Hurry and wash your face.

I yawned as I got off the bed and wore my shoes, slowly making my way to the bathroom. I
was shocked at my friends hair in the mirror. I squeezed toothpaste out, and walked out with
bubbles all over my mouth: I finally know whats wrong. How can you come into my room
randomly? If this gets out, my lifetimes innocence will be ruined by you.

Fang Yuke wiped off the bubbles on my face. His face still wore a hint of an evil smile: Itll be
great if this gets out. The farther it gets, the better. Itll be best if this gets out to Wen Taos
ears. I want to see Wen Tao super sullen. In the future, lets hold hands in front of him and
show off.

Men were always childish. But as I kept listening, I automatically remembered the last
sentence. Thus, I began to laugh.

Fang Yuke warmly brushed off my hair that stuck up in the air trying to fly: Be obedient. First
go comb your hair.

I walked even more eagerly towards the restroom. With some water, I managed to press my
hair down again.

Todays assignment was to go to visit the wickerwork craftsmen among the people. Actually, I
didnt care about the theme. Love was sufficient for me to lose all my wisdom. Whats more, I
didnt have much IQ in the beginning. Originally, I would pretend to be aloof. Even if I was in
love, I would reflect a Currently still inspecting and studying powerful attitude. But grudgingly,
my external appearance and inner thoughts coincided which caused my whole face to laugh,
with some distortion

Tan Yi walked over uneasily: Sis-in-law [2], nothings wrong with you right? Youve already
laughed to a bamboo basket for a whole morning.
I had never felt that sis-in-law could sound so pleasing to the ear before. I patted Tan Yis
shoulders: As a person, you must be happy. Our hometown has so many cool wickerbasket
arts, which can become one of the pillars of our economic development. Art and economics
complement each other in this way, jointly improving. I cant help but feel my heart move with
happiness, full of comfort.

Tan Yi scanned our surroundings: You didnt come here to accept an interview, so who are
you acting for?

I sighed: As an alumni from Peking Uni, I often have to ponder many deep things. If children
dont understand this, I can totally understand why.

Tan Yi looked at me like he was looking at a freak: Youve been possessed? Do you know
where you came from?

Whence life comes, and where death goes, has always been a perplexing thought ever since
the ancient times. If you are curious, sis-in-law can sit down to talk with you about this.

Tan Yi finally could not stand my Tang Sen form, so he made a fist, hinting he wanted to beat
me up.

I immediately acknowledged my mistakes: In fact, this poor Buddhist nun came from the East
Tang Dynasty. She specializes in going to the Western Paradise to worship Buddha to seek
her offspring

Fang Yuke laughed when he heard us being flippant, with a quiet and content appearance.

In the afternoon, I prepared to nap in the hotel for a moment. As to prevent from being as sleep
dead as I was this morning, I especially made my phone ring every five minutes for my alarm
clock.

Right after I had made my heart at ease, I splayed out on the bed, heaving a light knock on the
door. I lay on the bed and pretended I hadnt heard it. The person at the door dedicated himself
to knocking at the same frequency, almost as if he knew I was trying to sleep.

I angrily got up from the bed I had just been about to fuse into. When I opened the door, I saw
the exquisite [3] Ru Ting standing in front of me full of grievances. I felt sympathy [4] and
immediately apologized for opening the door late.
My heart faintly felt uneasy. I hadnt been with Fang Yuke for a day, so there was no time to
investigate his past. I always liked to convince myself first. Dating should be viewed broadly
and paied attention to. The past was something meant to be forgotten. How many romantic
fiction novels had been written internationally. Even movies and dramas told us one thing:
Confused lovers often could not obtain Gods blessing, and would create unceasing doubt and
jealousy. It would only lead to forcing the couple to part ways [5].
But I knew even more clearly that I would not go investigate because I was afraid. If the same
third party had successfully seized the throne, I had no position to ask of his previous
relationship with his old primary wife. Even if Fang Yuke didnt have any relationship with her,
Ru Ting had a deep love towards him that everyone knew about. As for me, she robbed me of
what I cherished [6], and I lacked the confidence. My rival was too strong. In each dangerous
moment, I did not know if I could win to the ultimate end.

[1] Old ginger was hotter than young ginger: Older people have more experience (LOL)

[2] Actually, Tan Yi calls Lin Lin which refers to: Xiao Kes wife/sister-in-law. But I
shortened it to sis-in-law because its shorter and the mood is more evident LOL
[3] : Literally means like a flower and jade. In this case, it means exquisite.
[4] (idiom) To have tender, protective feelings for the fairer sex.
[5] (lit.) to take different roads and urge the horses on (idiom)/ Fig. To part ways

Cliche Misunderstandings Always Happen Coincidentally (2)

Ru Ting sat down and asked about my grades and my plans for the next semester. Before she stepped
into the official questioning, she did ample warming up.
I didnt have any other ability, besides the ability to do things half-heartedly that I was very confident at.
Thus, I cheerfully chatted about my circumstances at school that were still just as grim. Next semester,
my circumstances remained unknown, until in the end I got farther and farther away to domestic
suffering and foreign chaos of war which I recited all the way through, until finally, I made Ru Ting
super impatient. Thus, she could only toss out her main topic: Lin Lin, Yuke and you seem a little
strange today.
I sat upright and still: Where was it weird? Im still the me from yesterday. Hes still the him from
yesterday.
Ru Ting observed my face: You guys have laughed for a whole morning. You love laughing so thats
only natural, but knowing Yuke for these ten years, all the total amount of times he laughed in his whole
life cant compare to the count from today.
Really? Being described like this by my love rival, my mood was a little complicated. I wanted to tell
Ru Ting the truth, but perhaps it wouldnt be too vicious if I said it. At the same time, if I kept it from

her, in the future when she learned of it, I was afraid she would commit suicide by biting off her tongue
due to our conversation today.
I carefully asked Ru Ting: You have such deep feelings towards Yuke. What if he falls in love with
someone else? It isnt good to throw your whole self into liking someone. Its great to leave a path of
retreat for yourself.
Ru Ting shook her head helplessly: I never thought of what I would do in a future life without him.
Because I wont let these kinds of things happen. Ive gotten to used to laughing for him, crying for him,
and wasting time for him, and squandering my youth for him. As long as no girl has appeared beside
him, I have hope. Right now, besides him being more familiar with you, I havent seen him getting close
to other girls.
An expert was worthy of being called an expert. With a few sentences, she had probed out my
relationship with Fang Yuke. She also told me that if I were to be with Fang Yuke, she would seize him
back regardless of anything else.
Speaking of, I also did not know how to grasp the weight of my words: Many people compare feelings
to sand. The more you pinch it tightly, the more washes away faster. When your first foot leads, your
trailing foot must place itself down. Like fate, you should cherish this. If fate leaves, you should forget
him.
Ru Ting laughed: Did you use this method to forget Xiao Xi bro? If so, then I must congratulate you.
Unfortunately, I cannot do so. This lifetime, I only want to love once.
I was a little worried. When she knew about the truth, it wasnt a question of suicide, but rather a
question of pushing against my neck with a cleaver.
Love was meant to be sincerely treasured. The price of a life was even higher. I immediately advised Ru
Ting: Ru Ting, if your eyes are obscured by a single leaf, then you will be unable to see the great
patches of flowers on Mount Tai. When you get to the next Fang Yuke, there will be a pile of Zhang
Yuke-s and Li Yuke-s as you advance dauntlessly wave after wave. The red earth continues for ten
thousand fathoms. In case it falls to the ground, it will be precisely three feet of loess. Why must you
hang yourself on a tree? Nevertheless, you should take advantage of your youth and experience more
things. Maybe after you meet other people, you will find that Fang Yuke only a grain of sand in your
life.
Ru Ting turned around to face me. Suddenly, her eyes brightened: Are you with Yuke just so you can
forget Xiao Xi bro?
Her question was such a huge leap, that I almost couldnt bear it. This sentence included two pieces of
information. First, she knew Fang Yuke and I were together. Second, she used my words to rebut
myself, making me unable to rebut her.
Sure enough, someone who had been by Yukes side for so many years was a person full of a poisonous
mouth. Zhang Wu Jis mother spoke well. One must not believe pretty girls. After acting so long, they
suddenly know everything. After all, I had not met great gales and waves, so I was a little panicky. It
could be compared to stealing someone elses things and getting frisked at the scene: Who told you Im
with him now?
Ru Ting clung to her question: Are you with him to forget Xiao Xi bro? If you think these methods will
work, I really want to try the feeling of finding a body double.
This phrase body double was extremely offensive. I opened my mouth but I did not speak. Originally,
I wanted to shake my head out of instinct, but my mouth said, Then just take it as I think that way. In
any case, you can try letting go.
Ru Tings eyes rose above mine, as she rushed at my back and said, I even thought it was a grand
romance. Isnt it just striking all your wishes in order?
I followed her eyes and turned. I saw Fang Yuke holding a snack bag in front of me. Below his thick and
black eyebrows were a pair of flaming, murderous-looking eyes.
Ru Ting leisurely walked towards him like a victorious queen: I found her, only because I want to hear
her views on love. Dont overthink it. Im not the type to stab you behind your back, and I wouldnt find
her to stake everything for you. Its just that at noon you told me that a couple is each others
sunshine##. It seems that the story behind this is even more marvelous.
## This is from a previous chapter

I stayed where I was. This was too theatrical. Before, I had thought that the misunderstandings created
were all a scenario that a bunch of spinsters had fantasized about, but I didnt think that something with
such a low probability would occur in reality. Moreover, the person implicated was me. I thought: What
is called no back-stabbing? Ive already become a hedgehog from all your knives.
The drama I imagined had one person dragging the other persons hand crying out to the heavens as one
person said, Listen to my explanation. Then, the other person would wait for the other person to put
her hands over his ears and say I wont hear it, I wont hear it. Then, I would close his lips with mine,
and kiss him silently, even while the sky spun, and the earth went around. In teh end, a shattered mirror
would be put back together.
Unfortunately, in this scene, I was the male lead, and the other person was the female lead. Right now,
there were still some discrepancies in these matters that had developed.
Oh God, my love has only sprouted for a day. Please dont submerge it with a flood.
Fang Yuke walked over, fixing his attention on my eyes. Calmly and directly, he asked: Why are you
together with me?
I watched the long lashes on his eyes, seeing his black and clear eyes as well as foolish me, in those dark
eyes: Because I like you.
Fang Yuke bent the corner of his mouth, pleased. He lightly touched my head as if I was a little
Pekingese dog who was very obedient: This is obedient. Next time, dont speak rubbish.
My rock in midair finally hit the ground.
Ru Ting collapsed, especially seeing that her beloved person had gotten together with someone else.
With some hysteria she said, Yuke, what good is she? She obviously loves someone else. Do you still
want to struggle so much?
Fang Yuke lightly drew Ru Ting towards him as he calmly said, You understand logic. Why must you
be the one to struggle persistently for me? If I met you earlier, I would definitely have liked you. She
does have many weak points, and she cannot compare to you in any way, but I could tolerate all these
weak points just now. Ill struggle with her then.
Ru Tings head leaned on Fang Yukes shoulder, as she sobbed: I am not resigned to this. I have
obviously defended you for 12 years. How come I still didnt protect you in the end?
Fang Yuke patted Ru Ting: I understand. Simple thoughts of keeping watch can lead to despair.
However, you must see if fate wants to help you. I can be anyone for you, but we will forever not be
lovers.
Ru Ting didnt stop shaking her head, with a tear-stained face of a beauty. A beautiful woman was a
beautiful woman. Even when she cried, she had charm and grace. If she hadnt been lying on Fang
Yukes shoulder, I would have went over to comfort her.
Ru Ting turned to look at me: As long as any cracks form, I will return. Lin Lin, dont be too proud.
I mumbled to myself: You arent a housefly who can watch for the narrow slits.
Ru Tings eyes opened wide with fury. I pretended I didnt see it. I looked everywhere but her. My heart
was still feeling secretly delighted at having rooted out my rival in love so speedy and efficiently.
At night, Ru Ting departed the travel group ahead of schedule and returned to Beijing. I impatiently
looked at Fang Yuke who came back from the airport, but then I impatiently watched him indifferently
pass by my eyes. Finally, I impatiently watched him calmly eat while talking to other people. This rascal
had obviously acted magnanimously in front of Ru Ting, in a loving manner, but how come the next
moment, he changed his attitude? Furthermore, not even half a day had passed ever since I had
confessed but how come I lost my initiative and power!!
The second night, I couldnt sleep again.
In the last few days of travelling, I didnt even see Fang Yukes eyes get moist once. Fang Yuke acted
like the next day he was going to go on an entreprenuership, as a strong interest towards economics in
our hometown developed. He didnt stop asking questions, taking notes and cleaning up. I wanted to
suddenly tell him what happened on that night, even if my own life degraded. Influencing someone
elses youth was still beautiful for the future.
In my heart I also felt pretty wronged. You said I was treated so unjustly, but you never honorably
handed me my status, before throwing me into the Cold Palace. You didnt even give me a second
chance. Fang Yuke, you pretty face! You look like a leather bag that attracts the opposite sex. I didnt

even say anything. Ten years is not too late for a nobleman to take revenge. Just wait until this old
woman grasps some definite evidence. If I dont exterminate you, my last name isnt Zhou!
When I thought about this, my heart became a bit more comfortable. My footsteps also became more
lofty. Home, my hearts natural harbor. I have come

When I returned home, my mom and dad were about to eat. The moment they saw me, they
immediately stretched out their necks to peer behind me. I waved my hands: I didnt bring him
home. Who brings him home the moment they start dating?

My mom despaired as she handed me a bowl and some chopsticks, Weve seen your face for
twenty-ish years. It was with much difficulty that we could see a new face. How can I not be
excited?

My father echoed, As for this Fang Yuke, two days ago I saw him on the news. Sure enough,
hes exactly like your dad back in the day

I imitated Zhao Benshans tone of voice and said, As if. Black dirt and white clouds are all
incomparable things. If you were pretty when you were young, how could you give birth to such
an unmemorable person? If I were to undergo plastic surgery, besides the fact that I wouldnt
have to do my ears, I would have to do overhaul on all my other areas. How awkward would
that be for the plastic surgeon?

TLN: You probably wont get the Zhao Benshan reference if you havent heard him speak before or you
dont know anything about him. Im both HAHA
My mom looked at me in wonder, How did you suddenly see the whole situation clearly? Alas,
Fang Yuke has a little fault. Hes too hot which makes it easy for my Linlin to feel inferior. Just
look at how hes attacked my daughter.

I pouted and didnt speak.

My father was still the one who knew how to love people, Whats wrong with Linlins
appearance. Doesnt she have a nose and eyes?

I nodded my head fiercely.

Besides her smaller eyes, her droopy nose, some pits on her face, and a bit more flesh on her
chin, shes pretty great, said myy father as he looked over me carefully.

How was this a quick-witted natural harbor? This was obviously the end of a loli!

Ever since my mother began to speculate in stocks, we bought a computer. And as for my
forgotten idle room, it had been reduced to a study room. I entered the room to rest as I idled
my time away on the internet. I listened to some music, went on some gossip sites, and
opened QQ, reaching my intended location in a flash.

Wow! Fang Yukes light was on by his profile picture.

As far as I could remember, his QQ was made up so that he could help me register my QQ.
Even his ID name Heart Jumps had been thought of at the last minute in my dormitory. I
didnt know how many close females had joined his QQ. Didnt women usually change
numerous QQ numbers to meet numerous guys? Plus, guys could all have numerous girls
under one QQ number When I had stolen his QQ password to take a look, I had seen a few.
But where was I?

TLN: According to socksrocker, QQ is like whatsapp maybe, but with different usernames
As I was thinking, my mother brought some fruits in. She carried a chair and sat next to me,
examining me for a long time. She sighed and said, You have went through many grievances
in university right? You cut your hair and you got skinnier. The moment you entered, your dad
and I both couldnt recognize you. Did you change to this morality and conduct because of that
Xie Duan Xi?

A mother knows her daughter best. Usually when my mother entered my room, she would act
out the role of a caring older sister, extremely different from her usual self where she blustered
loudly. I rubbed my bare toes, I guess so. On the contrary, I was very broken-hearted back
then. The sky collapsed. Alas, the most popular guy on campus has an owner, whilst I cant
keep up. How could I not get skinnier from worrying about this?

Ma passed me a piece of watermelon, indicating that I should try it. I admired my mother. She
could give me fruit to eat after I had finished rubbing my fingers through my toes. My
unfortunate bad habits that people resented probably stemmed from this.

Ma continued to say, Its okay for youngsters to be crazy once in a while. Before I married
your dad, I still went out with other people. However, just because you go out, doesnt mean
that you will really spend your days together. Last time when I saw Fang Yuke at the train
station, I could see that the way he looked at you was different. Fang Yuke, this person is
handsome and educated. He looks like he really understands your thoughts and really loves
you. In the future you must have children to neutralize each other out. At least, he is better than
you. In the future you wont suffer as much as I did raising you. I will also feel at ease. Back
when you were born, you were black and ugly, with all five of your senses organs crammed
together on your face. At the time, if it hadnt been for that nurse that held you, I would have
been suspicious of whether you were my own child or not.

Old people all love to play around with recalling the past and looking forward to returning.
As they speak, they would get further and further away from the topic at hand.

Mom, are you comforting me or mocking me? I couldnt help but cut her off. No matter how
much we spoke, it would always turn into how much light I had taken from Fang Yuke. Even I
thought that I had taken too much of an unfair advantage..

Suddenly, in QQ, Fang Yukes profile picture flashed. Ugh, this was the first time I was happier
seeing someone elses head than Grandpa Mao on the Chinese Yuan.

I shoved the watermelon into my mothers hand, not caring that my hand was sticky and
immediately opened it.

Are you done reflecting on yourself? [Fang Yuke]

My mom leaned towards the screen, exploiting the opportunity.

I pushed the old womans face to the side. As I looked at this sentence, I immediately became
happy. This rascal was finally willing to talk to me again.

My mother suspiciously hissed, Reflect on what? Did you get into more trouble? I just knew
you would cause trouble. Didnt I tell you to protect the Gold Mountain? How come you still
cause so much trouble for me even after youve grown? Is it easy for your parents to make
money? Can you be worthy of us if you still cause trouble after growing so much?

Why does this sound so familiar? Wasnt this the way my mother admonished me back when I
didnt pass my math exam? I shot a glance at her and resolutely said, I absolutely did not
create any trouble. I was rooting out the dissident to pave out our future path. Unfortunately in
the midst of misfortune, I was attacked by a hidden enemy.

Usually, when you have nothing to do, you stick out your chest and knock yourself against a
gun. Do other people really have to plot against you? Alas, I will have to practice my typing in
the future so I can just help you chat myself. Right now, Ill speak, and you type. My mother
impatiently pointed at the keyboard.

My mother governed from behind the curtain, as I became a puppet who only knew how to
type. The following is the chat record from my mother and Fang Yuke:

My mom: I have finished reflecting. I was so wrong that I became a total mess.

Fang Yuke: As long as you know youve been wrong, its okay.

My mom: I was wrong about everything, but I have never been wrong about one thing.

Fang Yuke: ?

My mom: That is loving you. All of these mistakes have arose because of this reason. (Sure
enough, my ma didnt watch all those Chiung Yao dramas for nothing.)

Fang Yuke: Who are you?

My mom: I am your Zhou Linlin who always loves you. (My goose pimples fell all over the floor.
Did she really just say such a thing that made me drop all my dignity now and in the future? I
tried to refuse, but was pitilessly suppressed by my mother)

Fang Yuke: What do I usually call you?

I laughed. This rascal was super smart. He began to use secret signals. But my mothers
hands flew over like fried dumplings, as she took the initiative and helped me type: Idiot.

My mom: What is that scent of burning? Oh, it turns out that it is my heart that is burning for
you. (I was speechless! My mom was totally terrifying and intimidating.)

Fang Yuke: In 30 minutes, Ill meet you by the KFC by your house.

I looked at Fang Yukes profile picture that had speedily changed to black and white. Then, I
looked at my mother who was very proud of herself. I couldnt help but admire the vicious and
hot methods of this old woman. Selling her own daughter, she was really not aloof in the least.
My ma touched my head, The future is long, right now retreating a step is so that you can
jump farther. Wait until your position is steady and then Ill help you avenge this. You shouldnt
be too tender right now. This old woman has drank more water than the water youve bathed
in. In the future, if anything comes up, then you must consult with some adults. Thinking of the
past, didnt I yell at your dad? Right now, look. If my finger points south, does your dad dare go
west?

I thought that maybe I was not my mothers biological daughter. Otherwise, how come I had
none of the two-faced characteristics that she was associated with? In the future, when Im
married, as long as I could become the queen bee at home, I would die contentedly in the face
of death.

My mom opened my closet, and placed each garment in front of my body. Then, she threw
them onto the bed, one by one. In the end, she sighed in despair and pulled me over to the
neighbors house. The moment she entered, she spoke as if she were robbing, Take me to
your daughters closet.

Auntie Li was my moms mahjong pal for these past few years, who could not be shaken by
thunder[1]. The strong and unyielding sentiments on the Great Wall seemed like boulders.
Moreover, my mom often used Auntie Lis daughter to teach me a lesson. Actually, Wang Jian
[2] was my idol, even she was only named Simple, following Auntie Li and spending money
like she did was called doing as one pleased. How was it anything like me who had to beg my
mom for money? Also, Wang Jians stature was completely of the highest degree that I could
never attain. Her fashion model build,plus her skinny arms and legs and big boobs were
amazing. Usually, she bought clothes that were cool and elegant. At night, she would put on
heavy make up and go out. This was practically a contagious disease that spread everywhere.
On the whole, whenever girls met her, they would feel inferior and sorrowfully walk away.
When men saw her, they would throw aside their soul, and at the very least, they would start
having nose bleeds.

Auntie Li and my mother threw all the clothes onto me. F**K, when culottes were thrown onto
my body, they became leggings. Casual Western style clothes became a great gown. Did my
mother think she didnt attack me enough?

My mother finally found a black knee-length dress, with simple and slender shoulder straps. It
was arranged tight against the skin, showing off a vast sky of stars in the form of abundant
specks that moved to and fro. It was made out of cool and refreshing chiffon. If Wang Jian
wore it, she would look like a Barbie doll, like an Indian princess. When I wore it, because of
the height difference, and the seemingly longer slender shoulder straps, it seemed that my
whole center of gravity was way under Wang Jians center of gravity by 6 or 7 centimeters.
(Everyone voluntarily imagine clothes that suit Lin Chi-Lings height on Zhou Xuns body. P.S.
This is just to make a few analogies, please dont attack any celebrities.) My poor bra that
looked like steamed dumplings from Hangzhou, could actually be vaguely seen.
Correspondingly, the back exposed a little more than normal. I awkwardly looked in the mirror.
Besides the blackness that made me look skinnier, this skirt really didnt suit me.
TLN: The point with the Lin Chi-ling vs Zhou Xun thing is that Zhou Xun is shorter than Lin Chi-ling so
obviously clothes that fit one person wont fit another person.

However, my mom expressed her contentment, Since nothing is exposed anywhere, we must
create opportunities for it to become exposed.

I looked at Auntie Li, feeling very hard-pressed. Auntie Li was loyal and devoted to my old
mother, so she said yes with all her might.

Chapter 41- When a Virtuous Lady Advances (1)


When a Virtuous Lady Advances (1)

Fang Yuke was drinking coke and sat victoriously at the side of KFC. Sunlight filtered through
the glass and shone fully on his body, as if he was Buddha or Jesus and he was just waiting for
me to go and confess my sins to him.

I dont know which part of my crazy brain thought this up. It was possible that it was due to
Fang Yukes gaze or the confident aura that he exuded, which exasperated me. I felt that, from
beginning to the end, I didnt do anything wrong. On what basis did I have to endure his
resentment? Thus with large strides, I walked to the space opposite Fang Yuke and planted my
buttocks down. If not for the fact that it was inconvenient to do it in a skirt, I would have placed
one foot on the chair, forgetting all the tender words that my mum had said on QQ. If it was in
the ancient days, I would be like a governing official, with a long double-edged sword on my
side, with an extremely lucky dantian with good qi, patting the empty desk, Waiter, bring the
wine! It was a pity that this was the twenty-first century KFC. In front of the restaurant, Dian
Xiao Er, were troops that were paired in a similar fashion as a pair of shoelaces. Without
having even a cup of tea, I sat down empty-handed and lost the battle of grandeur by more
than half.

Fang Yukes slender fingers were playing with his straw. He raised his head, looked at me and
asked, Who spoke on your behalf on QQ just now?

Because I was too surprised, I momentarily forgot about my pretentious arrogant attitude and
spat out, How did you know it wasnt me?

He laughed lightly, his pitch black eyebrows danced lightly, It is more difficult for those words
to come out from your mouth than for you to score full marks in an exam.

I pouted unsatisfactorily.

Fang Yuke pretended to oblige me, I didnt mean to mock you. I just meant that its impossible
for a bad person to say good words [1].

I glared at him resentfully. If I had a double-edged sword in my hands, I would have raised the
scabbard to release a murderous aura.

Round 1: 0-1, Fang Yuke takes the lead.

I laughed coldly, The one who spoke with you is my familys esteemed mother. Youve met her
before. I never expected that you loved speaking with mothers. So you have this hobby, you
should have said so earlier.

Fang Yukes face twitched a bit. Haha, you must have calculated hundred and thousands of
times, but you never would have expected that my mother would be the one to interfere.

However, Fang Yuke quickly regained his composure, I never expected that Aunties inner-self
would be so youthful. Did she really give birth to you? Auntie speaks in a way that is much
more youthful than you.

Round 2: 0-2, Fang Yuke takes the lead.

I had very little face left, Are there people like you who attack me so ruthlessly? So petty, are
you sure you didnt say the wrong thing that day? As long as one works hard, a couple for a
day means a hundred days of love, dont you know this? How can you not remember my good
qualities and only remember all the things to begrudge me?

Fang Yuke let out a loud laugh, Whos a couple with you for a day? How could I not know how
how much effort you put in? Actually youve lusted after me for a very long time already right?

Round 3: 0-3, Fang Yuke takes the lead.

I turned my back, lifted my hand and swore secretly, Father in heaven, if I ever manage to win
in a battle of wits and intellect, I can sacrifice an entire month of laziness.

Fang Yuke suddenly said firmly, When youre speaking with others, you have to first use your
brain, do you know or not? Others dig a pit and you jump inside it. Is there anyone as stupid as
you? How did you test into Beijing University?

I bit my lower lip, and looked at him with grievance, Its not like they tested on how to dig pits
during the test. I chose to study German; its not like Im studying Civil Engineering, how would
I know when someone dug a pit?

Fang Yuke laughed, Do you have any reasoning at all? Forget it, forget it. Its okay to be a
little stupid. Between the two of us, as long as one of us has a brain thats enough. Oh right, in
the future when youre interacting with Xiao Xi, Im afraid that the red apricot tree will grow too
fast and I wont be able to build a wall in time [2].

I shook the cup of Coke in his hand, and purposely said in a loud voice, What is this pitch
black liquid? Why does it smell so sour? It turns out that Fang Yuke likes to eat vinegar [3]! I
laughed proudly until my whole body shook.

Fang Yukes face turned completely black and he slapped my head, Stop twisting around, if
you keep twisting, Ill end up seeing everything that Im not supposed to see.

I quickly nodded my head, and I saw that my chest was totally revealing a hint of spring. My
small bra was mischievously exposing its intelligence. I quickly covered it, What are you
looking at? Careful or youll get a eye-sty.

TLN: Spring can refer to sex


Fang Yuke shook his head and sighed, Idiot, I accompanied you for swimming classes.
Unless you strip completely naked, Ive already grown tired of seeing it.

This time I was the one whose face turned completely black.

Fang Yuke was too lazy to care about my sullen expression and said, Sit here and dont
move. What do you want to drink, Ill go and buy it. Next time in this public area, dont wear this
kind of revealing clothes or youll catch a cold. After saying this, he walked to the food stand
with large strides, leaving me, this young married woman, all alone, covering my chest and
looking at the setting sun.

As such, Fang Yuke used his poisonous tongue to safely control me. On the other hand, I ,
who was talented at committing crimes and the such, if one day I was unable to receive his
phone call, I would be flustered. It turns out that masochism is something that can be
developed later on in life.

I really had to thank Tan Yi, a year had gone by but he had not forgotten to contribute without
holding anything back. When Fang Yuke and I had become Tan Yis teacher and guardian, it
set up an opportunity for Fang Yuke and my feelings to become increasingly resolute.

I leisurely lay down on the redwood bench in Tan Yis living room, grumbling that the couch
was hurting my butt, while cracking melon seeds while watching Fang Yuke tutor Tan Yi in
chemistry.

To me, Chemistry was already a secret that had been lost in some distant and remote place.
As I heard some alien language flow unceasingly from Fang Yukes mouth, my eyes started to
blur. My oral cavity started to involuntarily secrete this substance known as saliva. Its true, a
man who was serious had a special kind of charm. The way I looked up to him was like I was
looking at a God. Even though, right now my posture was like Stephen Hawkings paralysed
body and could not fully portray my sincerity.

Tan Yi could no longer stand my high electrical charges. He said discontentedly, Xiao Ke
sister-in-law, I beg you, can you please stop the way you always look so love-struck? The way
you look, its as if you can even see what color our underwear currently is right now, okay? I
dont want to be the light bulb that has such a high voltage.

Fang Yukes lips curved into an extremely attractive arc, Currently, your sister-in-law is
secreting some excess hormones, please do not mind her.

I continued to lie paralysed on the sofa, broken in health but not in spirit. I smiled sweetly and
replied, In what way are you a lightbulb? You are manganese (iv) oxide, youre our catalyst.
You catalyze oxygen and bubbles.

Ill admit that I was really cocky right now. So cocky that all my hair was blooming like a
sunflower that opens proudly in the height of midsummer. Even all my blood vessels were wild
and unrestrained. In comparison, Fang Yuke was really calm. The majority of the time, under
my laser, he would continue to bear it with composure. This really angered me endlessly.

I had some regrets. At that time, why did I not pressure him for more answers but I had even
stopped. One sentence I like you was able to move my stupid heart. After that my head was
spinning and then what happened? He had not yet given me any love letter, nor sent me any
roses. Not even a decent candlelight dinner. I really wasnt this kind of tacky person, butI
could feel wronged and let myself be tacky for a while.

I decided that when I went back to school, I would discuss a countermeasure with my
girlfriends. The goal was to subdue Fang Yuke under my evil clutches for me to step over and
trample. With one hook of my finger he would have to jump over. With one twitch of my mouth,
he would have to carry water to me. Without one raise of my hand, he would offer up a warm
towel. In a nutshell, I wanted to be a dowager!!! However, without the official system of being
able to discuss these wanton ideas with my girlfriends, I allowed myself to break out in a love-
struck expression and greatly appreciated my thick skinned and cheesy words. Whilst Fang
Yuke calmly faced my sweet words that were dripped with honey, releasing pink bubbly
electricity waves, I continued to savagely increase my efforts in saying cheesy expressions to
curry favor with him. I, who was afflicted with Stockholm Syndrome, continued to fantasize. It
was a game in which in order to capture, one first had to let loose.

For example, currently, I was using my limitless IQ to think about what kind of pet name would
be able to properly represent my identity. Ever since Ru Ting left, I raised my eyebrows and let
out a sigh and straightened my waist by more than a little. Considering that Fang Yuke was
really a feast for the eyes, at all times he was in danger of being eaten up by others. I had to let
all those who lived under the sky, for all those who were under the age of 60 and above the
age of 6, know that he was a piece of grass that had an owner. People from the ancient times
had told us to be vigilant even in times of peace and to show gratitude for all blessings.
Thinking back on how Fang Yuke and I were together, all the moments of passion possessed
an extremely strong possibly of being reproduced. As such, I decided that I had to stick a label
on Fang Yukes body, that screamed Zhou Linlin. The label had to contain the words Not For
Sale, in order to prevent other people from thinking about him.

[1] Its impossible for a dogs mouth to spit out an elephants tooth.
[2] symbolic of a wife having an illicit affair.

Maybe I was too entranced as I thought or my expression that looked like I had Parkinsons
Disease was too scary. Right now, Tan Yi could no longer stand studying anymore and
viciously pushed me in retaliation. It was only at this point that I realized Fang Yuke was no
longer in the house.

I immediately asked, Wheres your Xiao Ke Bro?

Tan Yi rolled his eyes, Your man has gone out to buy ingredients to make food. If we waited
for you to cook for us, we would have starved to death.

Sigh, too traditional. Fang Yuke is terrible in this aspect. He cares for people too well so
nobody else has any opportunity to shine. I purposely shook my head tragically.

Tan Yi grimaced as if he had eaten a housefly, placed his hands on the pit of his stomach and
exclaimed, If my grandfather knew that you were this type of person, he would have never let
you enter these doors even if he was beaten to death. You were already stupid enough to
begin with, but after falling in love makes you seem like you have brain damage.

I stood up and gave him a Fo Shan Shadowless Kick. Now that this brat was under Fang Yukes
tutelage, he became increasingly malicious. In no time, he would be able to destroy flowers
with a single touch and he would wreak havoc on the whole country.
Just as I was getting rid of this evildoer for the good of the nation, Fang Yuke had returned
from buying the ingredients. Seeing the two of us quarrelling, he came over and held Tan Yi,
How could you be so ignorant?

I looked cheerily upon the dejected Tan Yi, thinking that it was good to have someone to
depend on. I was like the head of the family who owned a giant piece of fertile land, as I
watched the good show of a gang of scoundrels robbing a young lady.

Fang Yuke continued to say, You are under my tutelage, which means that your IQ is
exceptionally high. Messing around with her is a waste of all your efforts and your IQ will
plummet. A young person should think these things carefully, dont just seek momentary
pleasure. After saying this, he wrapped it up by very earnestly patting Tan Yis back.

Tan Yi snickered. With his handsome appearance flushed with success he looked extremely
elated in being able to cast off a burden. Under Fang Yukes training, he would definitely be
able to cause flowers to bloom and bless countless young women and rich wives in just half a
year.

Ding dong. I heard a sonata from the kitchen. I heard the sounds and went in and saw Fang
Yukes slender back. I suddenly had the urge to hug him from the back and rest my head on
his shoulder while saying softly, What delicious things have you cooked up?

However, I kept feeling that something was strange. If we were following a kdrama script,
things would turn out like this right? After thinking for a long time, I could not think of a reason
why it felt strange. From the kitchen sounded Tan Yis loud voice, The way to a mans heart is
through his stomach. Sister-in-law you need to study more about this. Hearing this reminder, I
finally recognized the problem that lay with my initial script.

Usually, it was the petite wife whose silhouette would be busy working in the kitchen. After
which, the buff husband would be the one who would blissfully give her a hug. Just now, under
the situation that I had thought of, if I had hugged him from the back, I would have to whisper
those words into his armpit, as if I was capturing him. How was that romantic at all?

Therefore, I had to learn how to cook! Just for the sake of that fleeting moment of bliss.

I walked over to where Fang Yuke was and saw him skillfully cut open the fish, pulling out its
organs and scraping away its scales.

For the sake of starting a conversation and gradually numbing Fang Yuke in order to achieve
my mission of stealing information, I casually irritated Fang Yuke in order for him to develop
some protective feelings towards the fairer sex, I fearfully opened my eyes wide, Oh my, how
cruel. This fish died with such helpless eyes.

Fang Yuke remained unmoved, cutting 3 more lines into the body of the fish, dousing it in
cooking oil.

If one stops rowing their boat, they will end up falling back. I persevered on and continued to
act, Its possible that this fish came to practice some martial arts. In its previous life it must
have committed some evil sin, in this life its already over so we can let it go since its already
been murdered. But its still been flogged publicly, receiving the top ten tortures during the Qing
Dynasty. The saying A man sacrificed on the chopping board and Im the piece of fish meat
[1] must have come from here.

I admit that after I had finished speaking, I realized that I was too impulsive and harmed my
own life. I couldnt help but to run to the basin and throw up before continuing.

Fang Yukes face twitched before he turned around and said to me, Just now when you talked
about sacrifice, you spoke incorrectly. Its not sacrificed, its sacrifices.

I was embarrassed, What? Ah ah, how embarrassing, itll be great if I can have a sudden
death right now.

It was probably because he was used to being a tutor recently. Fang Yuke actually continued
on to explain where I had gone wrong, The meaning behind sudden death already carries the
meaning of right now, so you dont have to say sudden death right now, since sudden death
is enough.

I really knew, at this moment, what it meant for a man to sacrifice on the chopping board while I
was the piece of fish meat. Fang Yuke didnt even leave me with a bit of face, but ruthlessly
killed me.

CAO! You self-centered showoff! I could no longer hold back and cursed quietly.

Fang Yuke said indifferently, I dont need someone like you, who has no guts to ask about my
family.

In my eyes, the Fang Yuke at this moment had turned into a cruel and mean jerk. In my entire
life, the thing I hated the most were those who intentionally tried to lecture me. They were the
ones who assumed that, since they were helping me, I had to prostrate myself and worship
them in gratitude. I never imagined that someone like me, even though I liked hearing the truth,
was actually someone who loved freedom even more. Why should you bother about how I
said this word, even though it did not improve my interactions with others, the pronunciation of
the word had pretty much achieved its purpose. Furthermore, my pursuit of eloquence was
merely at the most basic level.

Fang Yuke continued on, Anyway, my family will soon become your family. If you say it like
this, frankly speaking, its considered incest.

I had mentioned it previously many times ,that I was someone who could adapt really quickly.
After listening to the first sentence, the Fang Yuke, who was being trampled under my foot, had
suddenly became an outstanding god.

My heart burst with joy as I said to the god, There is no need to speak frankly, speaking
broadly, it is still incest.

In order to prove that I was not a good for nothing, I took the initiative to crouch down beside
the dustbin and pluck off the celery leaves. Life in the kitchen, except for the occasional check
for saltiness, had other activities, which pretty much encompassed choosing the edible parts of
the vegetables. This was the compromise that my weak father had made towards my valiant
mother. While my father had wanted to turn me into a perfect housewife, where even without
equipment, the most delicious dish could be brought out for the sake of being able to tame a
man through his stomach during married life, satisfy the tastebuds of parents-in-law and be
looked up to by his family members, on the other hand, my mother had always insisted that the
trend was now for the men to be in the kitchen. Women only needed to learn how to adapt and
compliment them, or else they would turn into a husk of a wife, a faded old woman who would
recount, with tears, unable to shake off her past, thinking about her previous 20 years and
proving in the end that this calamity had already been occurring everywhere, so one should not
continue the cycle.

And so, caught in between the two of them, I finally took initiative to pick out the edible parts of
the vegetables. Also, the degree to which I studied this made it obvious that it had resulted in
an increased amount of expenditure on housework. My father could not help but to buy things
that could increase his efficiency, in order to satisfy my prowess in eliminating inedible
vegetables.

I plucked out the celery leaves and looked at Fang Yukes busy silhouette. Listening to Tan Yis
voice that came from the living room as he was watching tv, I could not help but to let out a
sigh, We are really the auspicious precious three treasures of Buddha, a really lucky family!

After Fang Yuke heard this, he mocked, I definitely dont want a son who is as old as Tan Yi.
Fang Lei is only 5 years old right now.

Fang Lei?

Fang Yuke said as a matter of fact, My son.

I was someone who had very high demands with regards to peoples names. I really despised
my own name. I was confident that one call of my name would cause 10 people to turn their
heads in response. I had once violently protested to change this tacky name, but my mother
had secretly rejected the idea by saying that a common name was infinitely easier. I had
protested, asking her why she had not just called me Goudan, or Huniu or something like that.
My protests had been lowly accepted. As such, my mums temperament changed greatly. She
let me choose between Goudan, Huniu, Linlin and Linlin. I spit out blood 3 times In the
end, My Name is called Jin San Shun was broadcast. I held back my tears and finished
watching it and knew myself. Jin San shun! In the end, I concluded that my name was too

common, but it definitely had to have the word Lin. This would definitely have some indistinct
story and profound correlation with my mum and some young and inexperienced romantic love.
So, my entire life had turned into a constant chase for the monument related to the word Lin.

Even if I was unable to change my own fate, it did not mean that I was unable to stop this kind
of situation from happening to another person, The name Fang Lei wont do. Its too tacky. We
are so cultured, we have to choose a picturesque and beautiful name.

Then you should suggest one.

I pondered deeply but my brain was like a piece of stone and refused to move. I started at the
celery for a good few minutes, and the name that I could come up with was actually Zhao Qin
(literally translated to Confession Celery), a name that was commonly used by our ancestors.

Fang Yuke smiled satisfactorily, Look, even though youre a person with such culture, you
cant think of one either?

I could hear the taunt hidden behind his words, You still cant call him Fang Lei, you might as
well call him Fang Dong. When other people hear it, its similar to Zhou Dong. Those who dont
know him will really think hes the chairman of a Board, itll be a life full of people who cling on
to his leg.

TLN: (Fang Dong is a pun and means landlord)


By your reasoning, you can still call him Fang Zheng Wei (Political Officer Fang), Fang Zhu
Ren (Director Fang), Fang Da Ye ( Mister Fang), Fang Da Ge (Big Brother Fang) and so on.
This will give people more opportunity to take advantage of him.

At this point, I really wanted to crouch down and draw circles on the ground. I still insisted on
saying, Anyway you cant call him Fang Lei.

A common name is easy to raise.

Then why not the name Goudan or Hunu.

TLN: Goudan means Dog egg, Hunu means Tigress


Then you can choose between Fang Lei, Goudan and Huniu.

When I heard this sentence, a hot feeling started to arise from my Dan Tian, Say it, are you
the trueborn child of my mother?? Because this sentence had been spoken with too much
accuracy. It echoed throughout the kitchen like a heartfelt poem.

TLN: Dantian, dan tian, dan tien or tan tien is loosely translated as elixir field, sea of qi, or
simply energy center. Dantian are the Qi Focus Flow Centers, important focal points for meditative
and exercise techniques such as qigong, martial arts such as taichi, and in traditional Chinese
medicine (Wikipedia)
Tan Yi could stand it no longer and came in and grabbed onto a leg, Aunty Xiao Ke, if you
continue talking, all of us on this floor will topple over. Right now, the foundation of this building
is built on soybeans, it cant handle your lioness roar.

I huffed indignantly, Tell me, would you agree if your son was called Fang Lei?

I immediately treated Tan Yi as if he were my own younger brother, and hung on his back,
Right, right? How could one choose this kind of common name?

Tan Yi strongly pushed my hand away, What Im saying is, I can actually still hold on if youre
so childish. However, I never expected that Brother Xiao Ke could actually be pulled down to
your level. Its impossible for me not to say it, youre really awesome. Also, dont just casually
touch me. If not, some unknown person, whose IQ has also plummeted, will take this kitchen
knife and stab me.

Right now, I had pretty much figured it out. For someone like Tan Yi, who said that we were
similar, we would always incessantly mock each other. Since there was actually an opportunity
to mock someone, we would definitely hold onto it regardless of anything and would never let it
go in spite of all consequences.

I put the kitchen knife across Tan Yis neck, Quickly apologize, or else you will die drop by
drop.

Tan Yi played along and raised his hands in surrender, I can help you name your child, it will
definitely be incomparably great!

I toyed with the celery and indicated for him to continue.

Tan Yi looked extremely mischievous, Your son will be called Fang Zheng[2] made in
Beijing University.

[1] Power over life and death lies in the hands of others, thats where ones own life is taken.
[2] a country in Harbin, Fang Fang Zheng Zheng also means square-shaped.

This issue regarding the name could be discussed in time to come. I decided that I definitely
would not fight with him over this issue now and prioritized first to getting along with him for
now. At least it showed that Fang Yuke was planning ahead for the future. As such, I
straightforwardly replied, We dont need to think about things that are too far ahead in the
future. We wont know what the future holds for us, why go looking for trouble?

With one shake of his hand, Fang Yuke sprinkled more salt.

Tan Yi was extremely resentful towards the plate of crab meat tofu on the table that would
thirst a person to death.

In the future, when I was together with Fang Yuke, I would be able to gorge happily on food
and indulge myself in fine dining without caring about my image at all. However, my status was
increasing right now in order to show the strength of my adaptability. I could be crazy and I

could also be demure; I started to eat gracefully. It was written on those healthcare books that
you had to chew your food 36 times before swallowing. Generally speaking, I wouldnt allow
the food to spend too much time inside my mouth. The mouth was merely a fleeting corridor.
After the food had passed this corridor, it would quickly enter my tummy. The sudden desire to
eat slowly was definitely not comfortable for my mouth and the food accidentally entered my
tummy, causing my mouth to chew emptily and thus it was extremely uncomfortable.

Fang Yuke gave me another piece of pork rib, Does it not taste good?

I shook my head, No, its really very good. You shouldnt talk while youre eating, dont you
even know that?

Fang Yuke ladled out another bowl of egg soup, If its salty, you should drink more soup. The
soup I made today is relatively lighter.

I smiled, and slowly lifted the bowl to drink a mouthful.

Tan Yi turned his head to look at me, Xiao Kes sister-in-law, youre not eating with the style
as you usually do.

I glared at him and hinted at him not to look for trouble.

In the past, when we ate together, wouldnt you eat every single thing? Right now, the way
youre eating makes you look as if youve committed some crime. Dont tell me that the food
isnt delicious. If you have any ability, you should cook the next meal.

I decided to cut it all down in one strike. This Lady Boss has only managed to act as a demure
lady with much difficulty, why would you tear away my mask to reveal my true colors?

Dont tell me youre trying to pretend to be demure? Theres no need, no need. Even if you
farted right now, Brother Xiao Ke would say that it smells good. Tan Yi ignored my glances
and continued to say.

Youre the one whos going to fart! I could stand it no longer and finally exploded. When the
word fart came out, the rice grains exploded out of my mouth with great precision, landing
nicely on Tan Yis nose.

Tan Yi yelled, Ah- Brother Xiao Ke, how could you find someone like this! Even someone
whos acting demure would act until this state.

After this happened, I felt a little bit embarrassed. At first, I still could be called a female but it
was because I could not stand that this second character had actually said that I would fart at
this moment, even holding on to my nose, I still could not help but laugh. As such, I was
incomparably embarrassed, and like a shrewd wife, I pretended to be anxious, Who did you
say is acting demure? I, your older sister, was born a demure and beautiful Jeanne dArc!

Tan Yi used the napkin to wipe his nose and mumbled, Yeah, everyone yelling in the hawker
centre is a demure and beautiful Jeanne dArc. All the males in China are really lucky.

I was completely exasperated and placed my hands on my hips and roared, Tan Yi, I curse
you so that your future son will be born without an asshole. After saying this, I was
immediately flooded with remorse. I had initially wanted to pose as a demure lady, but now I
had turned into a vixen. Was that necessary?

Despite how I was surrounded by women who had poisonous tongues, my standard was
actually not at their level. It was because I was feeling especially moody and I was at the point
where it was impossible for me to hold back that I had let the chips fall and could only let out a
single word Damn without a single ounce of vigor. I was completely out of options and looked
extremely desolate. When I was young, I had been punished to copy out 30 pages of the
textbook because the class monitor had ratted on me. The only thing I could do in retaliation
was to go to the corner of the classroom wall to write on it with chalk: The class monitor is a
bastard turtle. And beside it, I drew a picture of a turtle. As such, I could resonate with one of
the iron-willed characters from the Stephen Chow movie Hail the Judge, who would fiercely
curse and swear at the people while still being highly esteemed. I fantasized all day long about
how I would also one day rule over the mountains and the seas, spectacularly cursing at
people until the heavens and earth turned. It was a pity that my dream was quite beautiful while
reality was bitter. And so my curses had no power.

Tan Yi threw away his napkin, and in the face of the threat of having a child born without an
asshole, roared in anger, Your son is the one who will be born without an asshole!

Fang Yuke stood up angrily and slapped his head, Who are you talking about?!

Tan Yi pouted in grievance, The two of you only know how to bully me. Its so clear that she
was the one who started it.

Fang Yuke sat down replied steadily, If your sister-in-law wants to act like a demure lady, you
should just let her. Would you rather her be like now, cursing and swearing at you? Was it easy
for her to just eat quietly for half an hour? For what reasons did you decide to provoke her?

I used my chopsticks to rap on the side of my bowl in irritation: When was I acting? I am
clearly the perfect and beautiful lady from those traditional families.

Tan Yi groaned, You have already discarded more than half of our celery yet you still claim to
be the perfect wife from a traditional family. If you have the ability, you should cook my next
meal.

No problem. Ill make you an entire full course meal. After youve eaten the food that Ive
made, you are no longer allowed to mock me.

Tan Yi and I sealed the deal with a high-five, As long as the both of us can eat an entire bowl
of the food you made, I wont say a single word in the future and I will look upon you as a
goddess. However, if you cant do it, Ill tell the whole world about how you spit out rice just
now.

My mother had taught me from young, although one could afford to offend a prince, one could
not afford to offend a scoundrel. Especially those who were petty. When Tan Yi had been on
the the receiving end of me spitting out my rice, and had also had his son cursed to be born
without some necessary organs, he had already set himself up as an enemy.

In the afternoon, I took advantage of the time they spent revising to secretly go on the web to
steal some simple recipes and give myself a crash course in cooking. I took the initiative to
filter all all those sophisticated dishes that required 3 or more ingredients. Eventually, I decided
to cook the following dishes: Tofu with Spring Onions, boiled Green Soybeans, Scrambled
Eggs with fresh Tomatoes and clear Persimmon soup. All only required 3 ingredients. If he
complained that the dishes were enough, I would buy him 500g of peanuts.

After calculations, I continued to lie on the sofa with a clear conscience while pondering about
the pet names that Fang Yuke and I would give each other. I didnt think that after lunch had
passed, my brain would lack oxygen. Before 3 minutes had even passed, I had fallen into a
deep sleep. My dream contained lush forests and flowers, while I was dressed comfortably in a
light and gentle cotton long-sleeved shirt, accompanied by the Chinese Moon Rabbit. I sat
comfortably beside a guzheng, as my slender jade fingers glided along the guzheng. It
completed the image of bliss. Suddenly, Fang Yuke ran over and said, Are you tired from
carrying this? Actually, all you need to do is to be alive, its not necessary for you to turn
yourself into a demure lady. I immediately replied, You should have said so earlier, so that I
wouldnt have had to suffer so much. After saying this, I released a set of flames and burnt
away the guzheng. I also slaughtered the Moon Rabbit. I roasted it and doused it with alcohol
before eating it. Fang Yuke said in terror, You were actually this kind of merciless person. You
really cannot judge a book by its cover. If I marry you, I wouldnt know whether or not you
would one day assassinate me. I think we should break up.
I awoke with a start and appeared completely depressed.

When I arrived home, I immediately headed towards the kitchen to cultivate a relationship
between the oil, salt, soy sauce and vinegar in order to avoid the situation of being unable to
differentiate them all tomorrow. Of course I had some semblance of general knowledge and
knew that tomorrow would not turn out like some kind of drama where the unknown and
obscure Ccinderella would be able to present a full course meal with but a wave of her hand.
Where every person who had partook of her dishes would prostrate themselves under her
feetshirt in worship, clapping in disbelief and admiration. This was my ultimate goal: I could
embarrass myself, but not too much.

When my mother saw me in the kitchen, it was like she had seen an alien: What food are you
thinking of stealing?

My mother was a person of experience, in her words, she had drunk more water than I had
ever used to bathe. I asked my mother, Mum, when you were young, if you happened to
encounter a situation where you really didnt feel like cooking but you had no choice but to
cook something, what food would you generally cook for us?

My mother immediately started to reflect upon a time, 20 over years ago, where she did not
have enough income to spend. At the end of the month, she had to relyreply on her own
parents to tide her through the season., At that time, (500 words omitted) in order to save
money for food, I had made Soy Sauce Bibimbap for you before.

How do you make said Bibimbap?

Thats super simple, you just have to pour some soy sauce into the rice.

You dont need any other flavoring?

If you really have to add more flavouring, you could add in some chicken salt or the like.

Woah, I decided that the meal for tomorrow would definitely be this. I canould guarantee 100%
that tomorrows food would definitely end up burnt or mashedmushed into a paste. If I just had
to add some seasoning, I could, at the very least, pass.

On the next day, I brought along a bag of green soybeans, 3 tomatoes, an egg, a block of tofu
and 2 small shallots and entered Tan Yis door.

Tan Yi took a look at my ingredients and let out a loud sigh, I think that you might as well just
crush me to death with that tofu and forget about it.

Fang Yuke smoothed out my hair, I specially brought along 3 bags of microwavable food. You
can cook your food without fear or restraint.

WHY?! Why did no one have faith in me? When I heard about the microwavable food, even I
felt a wave of happiness.

Fang Yuke and Tan Yi studied chemistry on the table in the living room while I continued to
study the recipes that I had printed out yesterday.

In the recipes, I used a red highlighter to highlight the key steps of removing the tomato skin,
green soybeans with star anise and cut slices of tofu.

I washed the tomato before I started to peel it. I actually had a lot of patience when I first
started but as the time continued to tick past and the tomato slowly release a sweet smell, I
could not help but to salivate. After peeling only half of the tomato, furthermore the side of the
tomato that had been peeled was quite bumpy, it started to look like the spitting image of
something like a skin disease or a face infested with acne.

Fang Yuke shook his head and said, You should first soak the tomato in some hot water then
itll be easiery to peel.

It was as if I had gleaned some super precious information and eagerly ran into the kitchen to
grab some hot water. Looking at how easily the tomatos outer clothes were removed, I broke
out into a lecherous smile.

After entering the kitchen, I began to cook the dishes one by one.

I started with the green soybeans: 3 litres of water, add in the star anise, add in the salt, add in
the green soybeans and boil until its done.

Shallot Tofu: Slice the tofu, add shallots, add salt, add sesame oil then fry it together.

After that, the Scrambled Eggs with fresh Tomato: Add oil, add the egg, add tomatoes, add salt
and fry it together.

Finally, the clear persimmon soup: you just had to add a litre of water to the persimmons and
eggs and finally add in another egg.

The rice depended on the accuracy of the measurements of the rice cooker and it was actually
neither mushy nor burnt. I hesitantly picked up the soy sauce bottle, and was unsure of
whether or not I should stick to the original plan. I eventually thought about how I had studied
German and the focus of Germans research had always been that a plan would result in
success. So I decided to add in a bit of soy sauce into the rice bowl and mixed it around with
the rice paddle.

I would rather die than to be the first one to try this, this kind of thing required one to sacrifice
their taste buds. This kind of thing which required one to sacrifice their taste buds in the name
of food should be left to Tan Yi.

The three of us sat around the table and neither of us moved to pick up the chopsticks. I
believed that everyone was thinking over the same question as me: who would be the first
unlucky person?

I realised that it would not do to continue this deadlock and said to Tan Yi, Didnt you say that
you wanted to try eating my food? Why have you not started yet?

Tan Yi sucked in a breath, Actually, I really feel like eating meat. Its a pity that you didnt
make any. Why dont we leave these dishes for later

I felt that this suggested was raised very well. How could I not have thought of this. If I had
known earlier, I would have made some items like braised pork, sweet and sour pork, Xi Hu
vinegar fish. If we go outside to eat, you cant say that Ive lost. You havent even eaten a bite
before you say that you want to abstain from voting. I will also take it as if I have not won. In
the future, you just have to treat me better towards an suitable level and it will be fine.

Tan Yi said passionately, Sister-in-law, its lucky that I met you, in the future, my standards for
finding a lover have been drastically reduced. Basically, as long as she is a female, I will
accept her.

Fang Yuke saw the two us singing to the tune of the other and rapped his knuckles on the
table, Ill heat up the microwavable food in the oven. Theres Kung Pao Chicken, Steamed
Pork with Plum and things like that. It can be counted as meat. Linlin has made these dishes
with much difficulty, we should eat a few bites. We have to give a novice a bit of
encouragement.

In the end, I looked at Fang Yuke, this warrior, who placed a bite of the Scrambled eggs with
fresh Tomato into his mouth with much composure, and watched as he chewed it over
mechanically. He swallowed it calmly and I also hesitantly placed a piece into my mouth and
calmly swallowed it after chewing. Tan Yi looked at us skeptically and decided to try a piece.
When he placed it into his mouth, Fang Yuke and I simultaneously rushed desperately to the
side of the drink dispenser to pour out two cups of water. As if he was in a martial arts film, Tan
Yi clutched his stomach as if he had eaten poison and extended a single finger. With his last
breath, he gasped, I never thought that the two of you would be so childish - After which, he
twisted his neck and collapsed on the table.

This issue regarding the name could be discussed in time to come. I decided that I definitely
would not fight with him over this issue now and prioritized first to getting along with him for
now. At least it showed that Fang Yuke was planning ahead for the future. As such, I
straightforwardly replied, We dont need to think about things that are too far ahead in the
future. We wont know what the future holds for us, why go looking for trouble?

With one shake of his hand, Fang Yuke sprinkled more salt.

Tan Yi was extremely resentful towards the plate of crab meat tofu on the table that would
thirst a person to death.

In the future, when I was together with Fang Yuke, I would be able to gorge happily on food
and indulge myself in fine dining without caring about my image at all. However, my status was
increasing right now in order to show the strength of my adaptability. I could be crazy and I
could also be demure; I started to eat gracefully. It was written on those healthcare books that
you had to chew your food 36 times before swallowing. Generally speaking, I wouldnt allow
the food to spend too much time inside my mouth. The mouth was merely a fleeting corridor.

breath, he gasped, I never thought that the two of you would be so childish - After which, he
twisted his neck and collapsed on the table.

When a Virtuous Lady Advances (2)

This issue regarding the name could be discussed in time to come. I decided that I definitely
would not fight with him over this issue now and prioritized first to getting along with him for
now. At least it showed that Fang Yuke was planning ahead for the future. As such, I
straightforwardly replied, We dont need to think about things that are too far ahead in the
future. We wont know what the future holds for us, why go looking for trouble?

With one shake of his hand, Fang Yuke sprinkled more salt.

Tan Yi was extremely resentful towards the plate of crab meat tofu on the table that would
thirst a person to death.

In the future, when I was together with Fang Yuke, I would be able to gorge happily on food
and indulge myself in fine dining without caring about my image at all. However, my status was
increasing right now in order to show the strength of my adaptability. I could be crazy and I
could also be demure; I started to eat gracefully. It was written on those healthcare books that
you had to chew your food 36 times before swallowing. Generally speaking, I wouldnt allow
the food to spend too much time inside my mouth. The mouth was merely a fleeting corridor.
After the food had passed this corridor, it would quickly enter my tummy. The sudden desire to
eat slowly was definitely not comfortable for my mouth and the food accidentally entered my
tummy, causing my mouth to chew emptily and thus it was extremely uncomfortable.

Fang Yuke gave me another piece of pork rib, Does it not taste good?

I shook my head, No, its really very good. You shouldnt talk while youre eating, dont you
even know that?

Fang Yuke ladled out another bowl of egg soup, If its salty, you should drink more soup. The
soup I made today is relatively lighter.

I smiled, and slowly lifted the bowl to drink a mouthful.

Tan Yi turned his head to look at me, Xiao Kes sister-in-law, youre not eating with the style
as you usually do.

I glared at him and hinted at him not to look for trouble.

In the past, when we ate together, wouldnt you eat every single thing? Right now, the way
youre eating makes you look as if youve committed some crime. Dont tell me that the food
isnt delicious. If you have any ability, you should cook the next meal.

I decided to cut it all down in one strike. This Lady Boss has only managed to act as a demure
lady with much difficulty, why would you tear away my mask to reveal my true colors?

Dont tell me youre trying to pretend to be demure? Theres no need, no need. Even if you
farted right now, Brother Xiao Ke would say that it smells good. Tan Yi ignored my glances
and continued to say.

Youre the one whos going to fart! I could stand it no longer and finally exploded. When the
word fart came out, the rice grains exploded out of my mouth with great precision, landing
nicely on Tan Yis nose.

Tan Yi yelled, Ah- Brother Xiao Ke, how could you find someone like this! Even someone
whos acting demure would act until this state.

After this happened, I felt a little bit embarrassed. At first, I still could be called a female but it
was because I could not stand that this second character had actually said that I would fart at
this moment, even holding on to my nose, I still could not help but laugh. As such, I was
incomparably embarrassed, and like a shrewd wife, I pretended to be anxious, Who did you
say is acting demure? I, your older sister, was born a demure and beautiful Jeanne dArc!

Tan Yi used the napkin to wipe his nose and mumbled, Yeah, everyone yelling in the hawker
centre is a demure and beautiful Jeanne dArc. All the males in China are really lucky.

I was completely exasperated and placed my hands on my hips and roared, Tan Yi, I curse
you so that your future son will be born without an asshole. After saying this, I was
immediately flooded with remorse. I had initially wanted to pose as a demure lady, but now I
had turned into a vixen. Was that necessary?

Despite how I was surrounded by women who had poisonous tongues, my standard was
actually not at their level. It was because I was feeling especially moody and I was at the point
where it was impossible for me to hold back that I had let the chips fall and could only let out a
single word Damn without a single ounce of vigor. I was completely out of options and looked
extremely desolate. When I was young, I had been punished to copy out 30 pages of the
textbook because the class monitor had ratted on me. The only thing I could do in retaliation
was to go to the corner of the classroom wall to write on it with chalk: The class monitor is a
bastard turtle. And beside it, I drew a picture of a turtle. As such, I could resonate with one of
the iron-willed characters from the Stephen Chow movie Hail the Judge, who would fiercely
curse and swear at the people while still being highly esteemed. I fantasized all day long about
how I would also one day rule over the mountains and the seas, spectacularly cursing at
people until the heavens and earth turned. It was a pity that my dream was quite beautiful while
reality was bitter. And so my curses had no power.

Tan Yi threw away his napkin, and in the face of the threat of having a child born without an
asshole, roared in anger, Your son is the one who will be born without an asshole!

Fang Yuke stood up angrily and slapped his head, Who are you talking about?!

Tan Yi pouted in grievance, The two of you only know how to bully me. Its so clear that she
was the one who started it.

Fang Yuke sat down replied steadily, If your sister-in-law wants to act like a demure lady, you
should just let her. Would you rather her be like now, cursing and swearing at you? Was it easy
for her to just eat quietly for half an hour? For what reasons did you decide to provoke her?

I used my chopsticks to rap on the side of my bowl in irritation: When was I acting? I am
clearly the perfect and beautiful lady from those traditional families.

Tan Yi groaned, You have already discarded more than half of our celery yet you still claim to
be the perfect wife from a traditional family. If you have the ability, you should cook my next
meal.

No problem. Ill make you an entire full course meal. After youve eaten the food that Ive
made, you are no longer allowed to mock me.

Tan Yi and I sealed the deal with a high-five, As long as the both of us can eat an entire bowl
of the food you made, I wont say a single word in the future and I will look upon you as a
goddess. However, if you cant do it, Ill tell the whole world about how you spit out rice just
now.

My mother had taught me from young, although one could afford to offend a prince, one could
not afford to offend a scoundrel. Especially those who were petty. When Tan Yi had been on
the the receiving end of me spitting out my rice, and had also had his son cursed to be born
without some necessary organs, he had already set himself up as an enemy.

In the afternoon, I took advantage of the time they spent revising to secretly go on the web to
steal some simple recipes and give myself a crash course in cooking. I took the initiative to
filter all all those sophisticated dishes that required 3 or more ingredients. Eventually, I decided
to cook the following dishes: Tofu with Spring Onions, boiled Green Soybeans, Scrambled
Eggs with fresh Tomatoes and clear Persimmon soup. All only required 3 ingredients. If he
complained that the dishes were enough, I would buy him 500g of peanuts.

After calculations, I continued to lie on the sofa with a clear conscience while pondering about
the pet names that Fang Yuke and I would give each other. I didnt think that after lunch had
passed, my brain would lack oxygen. Before 3 minutes had even passed, I had fallen into a
deep sleep. My dream contained lush forests and flowers, while I was dressed comfortably in a
light and gentle cotton long-sleeved shirt, accompanied by the Chinese Moon Rabbit. I sat
comfortably beside a guzheng, as my slender jade fingers glided along the guzheng. It
completed the image of bliss. Suddenly, Fang Yuke ran over and said, Are you tired from
carrying this? Actually, all you need to do is to be alive, its not necessary for you to turn
yourself into a demure lady. I immediately replied, You should have said so earlier, so that I
wouldnt have had to suffer so much. After saying this, I released a set of flames and burnt
away the guzheng. I also slaughtered the Moon Rabbit. I roasted it and doused it with alcohol

before eating it. Fang Yuke said in terror, You were actually this kind of merciless person. You
really cannot judge a book by its cover. If I marry you, I wouldnt know whether or not you
would one day assassinate me. I think we should break up.
I awoke with a start and appeared completely depressed.

When I arrived home, I immediately headed towards the kitchen to cultivate a relationship
between the oil, salt, soy sauce and vinegar in order to avoid the situation of being unable to
differentiate them all tomorrow. Of course I had some semblance of general knowledge and
knew that tomorrow would not turn out like some kind of drama where the unknown and
obscure Ccinderella would be able to present a full course meal with but a wave of her hand.
Where every person who had partook of her dishes would prostrate themselves under her
feetshirt in worship, clapping in disbelief and admiration. This was my ultimate goal: I could
embarrass myself, but not too much.

When my mother saw me in the kitchen, it was like she had seen an alien: What food are you
thinking of stealing?

My mother was a person of experience, in her words, she had drunk more water than I had
ever used to bathe. I asked my mother, Mum, when you were young, if you happened to
encounter a situation where you really didnt feel like cooking but you had no choice but to
cook something, what food would you generally cook for us?

My mother immediately started to reflect upon a time, 20 over years ago, where she did not
have enough income to spend. At the end of the month, she had to relyreply on her own
parents to tide her through the season., At that time, (500 words omitted) in order to save
money for food, I had made Soy Sauce Bibimbap for you before.

How do you make said Bibimbap?

Thats super simple, you just have to pour some soy sauce into the rice.

You dont need any other flavoring?

If you really have to add more flavouring, you could add in some chicken salt or the like.

Woah, I decided that the meal for tomorrow would definitely be this. I canould guarantee 100%
that tomorrows food would definitely end up burnt or mashedmushed into a paste. If I just had
to add some seasoning, I could, at the very least, pass.

On the next day, I brought along a bag of green soybeans, 3 tomatoes, an egg, a block of tofu
and 2 small shallots and entered Tan Yis door.

Tan Yi took a look at my ingredients and let out a loud sigh, I think that you might as well just
crush me to death with that tofu and forget about it.

Fang Yuke smoothed out my hair, I specially brought along 3 bags of microwavable food. You
can cook your food without fear or restraint.

WHY?! Why did no one have faith in me? When I heard about the microwavable food, even I
felt a wave of happiness.

Fleeting Midsummer (Peking Universitys Weakest Student)
Fang Yuke and Tan Yi studied chemistry on the table in the living room while I continued to
study the recipes that I had printed out yesterday.

In the recipes, I used a red highlighter to highlight the key steps of removing the tomato skin,
green soybeans with star anise and cut slices of tofu.

I washed the tomato before I started to peel it. I actually had a lot of patience when I first
started but as the time continued to tick past and the tomato slowly release a sweet smell, I
could not help but to salivate. After peeling only half of the tomato, furthermore the side of the
tomato that had been peeled was quite bumpy, it started to look like the spitting image of
something like a skin disease or a face infested with acne.

Fang Yuke shook his head and said, You should first soak the tomato in some hot water then
itll be easiery to peel.

It was as if I had gleaned some super precious information and eagerly ran into the kitchen to
grab some hot water. Looking at how easily the tomatos outer clothes were removed, I broke
out into a lecherous smile.

After entering the kitchen, I began to cook the dishes one by one.

I started with the green soybeans: 3 litres of water, add in the star anise, add in the salt, add in
the green soybeans and boil until its done.

Shallot Tofu: Slice the tofu, add shallots, add salt, add sesame oil then fry it together.

After that, the Scrambled Eggs with fresh Tomato: Add oil, add the egg, add tomatoes, add salt
and fry it together.

Finally, the clear persimmon soup: you just had to add a litre of water to the persimmons and
eggs and finally add in another egg.

The rice depended on the accuracy of the measurements of the rice cooker and it was actually
neither mushy nor burnt. I hesitantly picked up the soy sauce bottle, and was unsure of
whether or not I should stick to the original plan. I eventually thought about how I had studied
German and the focus of Germans research had always been that a plan would result in
success. So I decided to add in a bit of soy sauce into the rice bowl and mixed it around with
the rice paddle.

I would rather die than to be the first one to try this, this kind of thing required one to sacrifice
their taste buds. This kind of thing which required one to sacrifice their taste buds in the name
of food should be left to Tan Yi.

The three of us sat around the table and neither of us moved to pick up the chopsticks. I
believed that everyone was thinking over the same question as me: who would be the first
unlucky person?

I realised that it would not do to continue this deadlock and said to Tan Yi, Didnt you say that
you wanted to try eating my food? Why have you not started yet?

Tan Yi sucked in a breath, Actually, I really feel like eating meat. Its a pity that you didnt
make any. Why dont we leave these dishes for later

I felt that this suggested was raised very well. How could I not have thought of this. If I had
known earlier, I would have made some items like braised pork, sweet and sour pork, Xi Hu
vinegar fish. If we go outside to eat, you cant say that Ive lost. You havent even eaten a bite
before you say that you want to abstain from voting. I will also take it as if I have not won. In
the future, you just have to treat me better towards an suitable level and it will be fine.

Tan Yi said passionately, Sister-in-law, its lucky that I met you, in the future, my standards for
finding a lover have been drastically reduced. Basically, as long as she is a female, I will
accept her.

Fang Yuke saw the two us singing to the tune of the other and rapped his knuckles on the
table, Ill heat up the microwavable food in the oven. Theres Kung Pao Chicken, Steamed
Pork with Plum and things like that. It can be counted as meat. Linlin has made these dishes
with much difficulty, we should eat a few bites. We have to give a novice a bit of
encouragement.

In the end, I looked at Fang Yuke, this warrior, who placed a bite of the Scrambled eggs with
fresh Tomato into his mouth with much composure, and watched as he chewed it over
mechanically. He swallowed it calmly and I also hesitantly placed a piece into my mouth and
calmly swallowed it after chewing. Tan Yi looked at us skeptically and decided to try a piece.
When he placed it into his mouth, Fang Yuke and I simultaneously rushed desperately to the
side of the drink dispenser to pour out two cups of water. As if he was in a martial arts film, Tan
Yi clutched his stomach as if he had eaten poison and extended a single finger. With his last

Tan Yi said passionately, Sister-in-law, its lucky that I met you, in the future, my standards for
finding a lover have been drastically reduced. Basically, as long as she is a female, I will
accept her.

Fang Yuke saw the two us singing to the tune of the other and rapped his knuckles on the
table, Ill heat up the microwavable food in the oven. Theres Kung Pao Chicken, Steamed
Pork with Plum and things like that. It can be counted as meat. Linlin has made these dishes
with much difficulty, we should eat a few bites. We have to give a novice a bit of
encouragement.

In the end, I looked at Fang Yuke, this warrior, who placed a bite of the Scrambled eggs with
fresh Tomato into his mouth with much composure, and watched as he chewed it over
mechanically. He swallowed it calmly and I also hesitantly placed a piece into my mouth and
calmly swallowed it after chewing. Tan Yi looked at us skeptically and decided to try a piece.
When he placed it into his mouth, Fang Yuke and I simultaneously rushed desperately to the
side of the drink dispenser to pour out two cups of water. As if he was in a martial arts film, Tan
Yi clutched his stomach as if he had eaten poison and extended a single finger. With his last
breath, he gasped, I never thought that the two of you would be so childish - After which, he
twisted his neck and collapsed on the table.

After I came out of the restroom, Fang Yuke turned towards me like a door god, taking the IV
bag in passing and then holding my arm to assist me back.

Linlin, in the future if you talk like that with Wen Tao again, I will ignore you, all right? I will
really slam the door and leave, and never come back. I wont come back for any reason. Fang
Yuke suddenly stopped and looked into my eyes as he spoke earnestly.

You think youre amazing because you can slam the door? If you have the ability, then tear
down the door. Plus, on what basis am I not allowed to interact with Wen Tao? Didnt you and
Ru Ting interact very intimately?

Thats not the same.

How is it not the same? Only the official is allowed to light the fire [1]. Dont be such a male
chauvinist. Right now, womens rights are moving up, so dont grab Confucian moral
injunctions to demand something from me. All my women comrades in the world will not
agree.

My meaning is that you are not Wen Taos opponent. Just use your IQ to deal with me, thats
enough.

Hey, what does that mean? How come you came back to the matter of my IQ? Do you mean
that your IQ is high so you can date two people at the same time?

Previously when we were carrying out the project in the summer, didnt we agree to do
something? Ru Ting is my little sister. My relationship with you is a pure intimate relationship.

Pah! Then Wen Tao is my big brother, and our relationship is even more pure than mineral
spring water.

Wen Tao held your hand and you call that pure?

Well, you took the initiative to hug Ru Ting at the time, so how come you guys are pure?

That hug was like a big brother to a little sister. Its totally different from Wen Tao pervertedly
holding your hand.

Dont make the scene so erotic. When we were on the Tian bridge telling your future, your
imagination was so rich

My eloquence today erupted. I just wanted to display my upright and honest soul with a few
sentences, but I saw Fang Yuke suddenly lowering his body and approaching my face. His
face magnified, as his five sense organs became more and more distinct. When he was only
one centimeter away from my face, he suddenly stopped again and looked at my lips as he
mumbled, Recently it has been so noisy.

My heart stopped.

The whole world stilled.

Fleeting Midsummer (Peking Universitys Weakest Student)
The afterglow that sprinkled into the corridor endlessly through each little lattice of glass,
sprayed all over the floor, leaving some mottled light and shadow. The sunshine sprayed over
my IV bag and refracted into dazzling light, so much so that I almost could not open my eyes.

But I still stubbornly opened my eyes wide. Underneath Fang Yukes thick eyelashes that were
like tiny fences, were black inky pupils. I saw that on his high nose, there was a faint little
charming birthmark. I saw his plump lips in what seemed like a smile, yet not exactly like a
smile as he seduced me. I stood on tiptoe as both of my hands clasped this work of art that
God was proud of. The red blood in the transparent IV flowed back, contrasting with Fang
Yukes face that had a thread of beauty that was pretty and flirtatious. It was like I had been
bewitched as I moved my lips closer to his.

I lightly pecked him, narrowing my eyes. The happiest moment of a human life is holding and
kissing ones one true love. When I touched Fang Yukes lips I was like an infant in my
mothers womb feeling secure and cozy. I clearly remembered how Fang Yuke seized my
waist, and how he carefully lifted the IV bag so as to prevent me from getting injured. I also
remembered how he softly said to me, In the future, dont get so noisy, all right? Be obedient,
all right?

And, there was also that sentence that was about to be swallowed up by his lips, I love you,
Linlin.

I felt Fang Yukes soft, flexible lips as they lightly covered my lips. It was almost as if the
dragonfly touched the water lightly [4], making everyone recall their grandmothers house when
they were little. Under the setting sun and within the creeks and rivers, I rolled up my pants and
built a little dam made up mud, grabbing a broken wicker basket as I obstructed many tiny
young fish. The splashes rose revealing a cool and refreshing heart. Unconsciously, I hooked
onto Fang Yukes neck. Fang Yukes mouth had a whiff of a nice scent of peppermint that was
just as natural and fragrant as the medicinal herbs in the field. I became engrossed as I lived it
up when Fang Yuke lifted my jaw. I heard us breathe together, scorching hot. I really wanted to
laugh. Who said that kissing needed technique? This was obviously the instinct of love

When we returned to the infirmary, my bashful girly heart slowly came to. In a flash I felt
embarrassed. All the romantic fiction novels, movies, and television talked about kissing as
something that could muddle the sky and darken the earth. After much confusion, they
switched scenes as they continued to be romantic and love each other with affection.
Otherwise, they would immediately go have sex. When they awoke, they would cover
themselves up with blankets, and then she would be assailed again before it was over. Who
can tell me what I should say after a kiss? Your lips really feel soft and real? Too erotic; You
must take responsibility for me, this is my first time? Too naive.

I cleared my throat, That.todays sun is not bad.. After I finished I wanted to commit
suicide by biting my tongue off.

Fang Yuke laughed weirdly and cupped one fist in the other hand [5], watching me as I
continued speaking.

Right, my meaning is that the sun caused misfortune, so I would dothat. My face felt as
if it were burning.

Yep, thats right. For other people, the moon stirs up trouble, but you are more special. What
comes out has to be top class. Fang Yuke continued to watch me, calm and unruffled in the
midst of chaos.

My head lowered even more. I wished I could shove this head into a thoracic cavity.

Zhou Linlin, I didnt know that you were the type that likes to take the initiative. Even though I
wont reject it, in the future I should probably be the one to do it. Fang Yuke laughed as he
finished.

I lifted my head, I had a reason. Who let you get so close to me? This is called seducing! I
have a love of beauty, so if Wu Yanzu and Brad Pitt both stood in front of me, I wouldnt need
to get closer. I would just go up and fiercely kiss them both. Each of these great handsome
guys rotated around and replayed in my mind like a rotating carousel. I believed that my eyes
were already filled with lust, and a debauched light.

Idiot. Your saliva is flowing so much that itll almost submerge the field. Everyone will then be
grateful to you for causing the cancellation of military training. Fang Yuke suddenly thought of
something, Dont let Wen Tao get too close, all right?

At that time, Wen Tao grabbed a drink and entered with the doctor. The two of them were
talking and laughing. It seemed like Wen Tao had already gotten to work. Wen Tao sat down
next to me, and grabbed a leather book, very professional as he prepared to start the interview.
The doctor came over and said to Fang Yuke, Just now, I ran into your squad leader who
wants you to go back to military training. Shes all right now. Lets not influence someone elses
news work. Ill also be avoiding them and leaving.

Fang Yuke got up unwillingly and shot me a threatening gaze before he walked out.

Wen Taos laugh was very unsightly, It seems you guys have gotten back together again.

I embarrassedly nodded my head.

Springboard, dont you think I am being very sacrificial? You guys quarreled and I gave you
time and space to make up. Other people always say that I am smart, but I think I am the most
stupid. In the past I always thought, I would wait for you to get hurt and then I would come help
you heal. You would be a little moved. But when you really got hurt, and I saw you angrily
quarrelling with Fang Yuke, I saw that you spontaneously accepted a compromise and
conceded until you reached terms with him. Then, I became softhearted. So even if you are not
laughing for me, I cannot give you any reason to cry. When I fell in love with you, didnt it stem
from the smile that came from the bottom of your heart?

I didnt know how to reply, so silence was golden.

I used to like a girl

Ru Ting? The moment I heard gossip, my energy came back.

Wen Tao shook his head, The world isnt that small. The girl I used to like is now settled down
in America. At that time she also really liked to laugh. She laughed as simple-mindedly as you
do. But she was prettier than you by a lot

My face turned black and I pouted in protest.

But she was different from you in one way. When problems occurred, she always wanted to
get closer and she absolutely wanted to come to a you die, I live, or an either the fish dies or
the net splits, kind of solution. As for me, I also did not explain things to her when I should
have. When I should have urged her to stay, I did not. In the end, we were both beaten down
and we could not bear it, so we could only go our separate ways.

Then do you still like her? Are you going to America to find her? Now I was the one to
interview him.

Do you still like Xiao Xi? Im only going to America to study, with a pure objective. That love
taught me that just with love, a relationship cannot prosper. Fang Yuke and you may commit
the same mistakes that we did. At that time you can find me when youre tired and hurt.

I lowered my head, I know that emotions have to be carefully broken in but as long as there is
love, I believe that we can all learn to slowly forgive. In the past I would imitate an ostrich, and
refuse to face my problems, but only now that true love has come do I realize that I can rack
my brains to solve problems.

Wen Tao laughed, Springboard, Ive found that every time I talk to you, you can dig deeper
into me. Have I been born with such a pure and relaxed face that even if I move, I become the
focal point of the interview. Do you think my heart is made of iron? Speaking love to me from
left and right.

Obviously you were the one who brought it up first. I dont want to share my feelings with you
anyways.

Springboard, I am not okay with letting you go, but I am not the type of person who can watch
from the sidelines and be satisfied either. Do you think I am someone without elegance, who
cannot make trouble between you and Fang Yuke? I think that at that time you will hate me.
Each time you will not leave a bit of face for me. When you say no, it is no. Alas, arent you a
Sagittarius? Cant you be just a little unfaithful and give me some opportunity?

I lifted my head to the heavens, I had thought about it before, but Im afraid that you guys
wont be happy. What about you two talk it through. One will be responsible for getting water to
me and the other will be responsible for massaging my shoulders. One will be responsible for
making food and the other will be responsible for washing the dishes. One will be responsible
for earning money while the other will be in charge of accompanying this highness to take a
walk. Sound good?

Wen Tao scratched his head in puzzlement, Originally you had a special quality of a
Sagittarius, and I thought your mother recorded the wrong birthday for you, changing you from
a Scorpio to a Sagittarius.

I laughed, Wen Tao, in the future, we should still stay the same. When you are busy, continue
to work. When you are bored and you think of me, you can send me a text or something. But
dont use official authority for private interest [6]. You arent suited for the kind of romance
between childhood lovers. Right now, you are holding a book and interviewing me, so terrified
that you are losing your head.

Then what am I suited for?

You are suited to be a workaholic, orfit to undergo fierce suffering..

Wen Tao stared blankly and helplessly shook his head, Next lets just get to the main topic of
the interview. Dear classmate, may I ask when you entered the path of Fujoshi, where a single
slip may cause everlasting sorrow with no return?

I smiled from ear to ear, From the way you male comrades wear V collars, with stud earrings,
with lipstick..also, Wen Tao there is one thing I have to tell you even if I have to die. Even if
you say there is a possibility of a cruel outcome and merciless revenge, as a fujoshi and a god,
it is my divine duty and I have no choice but to say: in the future, definitely do not wear
chrysanthemum [7] shaped earrings. Right now it is very easy to let ones imagination roam, so
even if you dont want to be askew, I would feel sorry for you.

We did drills everyday and were exposed to a lot of sunshine. Every night we prayed for
torrential rain. Every morning, the sun rose up as per usual. My face was originally dark, so it
was way more capable of heat absorption. It darkened at the rate of the speed of light. When
the last few days of military training finally came, I didnt even dare look at myself in the mirror.
I was exactly like the people who came out from a coal mine or a construction site. At night,
when I walked on the trails, I seemed invisible, blending in with the dimness of the night. At this
time, I didnt dare laugh as I pleased. I was afraid that if I suddenly opened my mouth to reveal
white teeth amidst the blackness of the scene, I would scare some timid girls, who would think
the place was haunted.

On the last day, I ate lunch in the canteen. Right when I intended to go back to the dorm to lie
down for awhile, I saw Fang Yuke standing in front of me from far away. I wasnt sure he was
coming towards me. Fang Yuke, that rascal, resembled Michael Jackson after plastic surgery.
No matter how much you tried to expose him to the sun, he stayed pure white. If he was so
fair, how could I possibly worm my way into becoming friends with you? People must think that
they have encountered the modern version of Heibai Wuchang [1].

Fang Yuke finally walked towards me, with a face of condescension, You sure do absorb the
essence of the sun and the moon. Aside from your eyeballs that havent become tanned, how
is it that youve started to resemble Oreo cookies so much? When I look at other people who
have become tan, I can at least stand it. But how is it that you appear so much like coffin
lacquer?[1]

Bah! So wretched.

I wiped the sweat from my face, This is called being healthy, all right? Right now, bronzed
beauties are very popular. Look at the little white face Gu Tian Le had on before he got tanned.
After he tanned, he became the idol of the whole country. You are being jealous right now
because I look like Chi Luo Luo. You look just like a refractive lens, as your color hasnt
changed one bit, you even look more attractive. Youll see that when the weather changes, my
ability to change again is unparalleled.

Yep, youll change into Li Kui or Judge Bao[2]. When you get home from school at night,
definitely dont ride any bikes. Other people will think that they have seen a bike riding by itself.
Also, before military training ends, dont take pictures with other people randomly. If the flash is
too bright, perhaps you will even disappear.

Hey, are you like a rodent where you have a period during which you grind your teeth[3]? How
come youre always so sharp-tongued. Ill buy you a rubber tube to chew on, to stop your teeth
from rubbing against your mouth and to stop you from biting other people.

Arent I biting you especially? I dont even care about biting other people.

How come these words sounded so erotic? I leaned my head to one side and thought, Was it
me that was being vulgar or was he just too pure and kind?

Fang Yuke patted my brain, and turned around heading towards the snack counter. As he
walked by he said, Dont think about it anymore. If you really want to dig deeper into the words
I just said, or replace it with another meaning, I have no objections. Alas, why did I find a
perverted **African woman to be my wife

**NOT MEANT TO BE RACIST AT ALL. Chinese value white/fair skin. Linlin is black now, so
its just a metaphor which is meant to be taken lightly.

Hehe, after I finished fighting with Fang Yuke, I excitedly ran up behind him.

On the day that military training ended, a lot of classmates held the military instructors hands,
reluctant to part. However, I wanted to sing loudly as a slave who has regained her freedom.
On such a hot day, I hadnt showered in days. If I were to continue on like this, I would become
a hermit. I symbolically held my military instructors hand, saying happily, The greatest regret
in my lifetime is that I have never grasped a submachine gun in the course of my military
training. Soldiers who dont want to hold guns arent good soldiers. Instructor, in the future you
have to strive hard to get out of this place and return to the normal armed forces. Soon, you will
be able to hold a gun! Ha!. After I finished, I even earnestly saluted him and loudly said, I
declare, that I am very happy today.

Fleeting Midsummer (Peking Universitys Weakest Student)
Sitting on the bus going back to school, I felt like a convict that had just been released from his
prison sentence. I grew a close and dear connection with all the birds that could fly and all the
fish that could swim. Julie couldnt stand me looking up at the sky as I whistled and said, Look
at you now. Everyone else probably thinks the instructor mistreated you. Why are you just as
excited as if you had injected some kind of energy into your bloodstream~~Even if the Chinese
soccer team were to score a goal at the World Cup, none of the fans would be as excited as
you are.

I leaned closer to her ear: During this half a month of military training, I met Fang Yuke twice,
but I met Ru Ting daily. If you were me, how would you endure it?

Oooh so are you just yearning after love?

Its fine, its okay. I just want to see if the apartment that Fang Yuke rented outside of school
got dirty or not, or if it needs cleaning. Isnt it lonely for one person to live there all by himself?
Isnt it just right if two people live there.

Control yourself. You might as well think of his apartment as the Crown Princes chambers.

Pshhh, you have no taste. Thats too vulgar. I obviously called it a home. A home, got it? It
was as if pink bubbles were popping in front of my eyes.

Oh, dont get excited now. Youve been baked into a refugee by the sun. Seeing a refugee in
heat is really testing my bottom line. If you say more, Im going to jump off of this bus. Also, will
your Fang Yuke allow you to move in?

Why not?! I asked.

Hell be safeguarding a minor. Who else can be as hungry and thirsty as you? Seeing Fang
Yuke so outwardly cold, but deep and passionate inside, he wont touch you until after
graduation. For other people, it might be different, but seeing you now, even after you take off
your clothes, youll be like burnt wood. Eating you will be the same as eating the black
Beggars Chicken [4] that hasnt been opened. Which guy will feel interested?

After I got back to school, with the speed of a 100m dash, I rushed into the public bath. Last
time, when I bathed, I would especially look down on the people who would scrub dirt off for a
really long time and hog the shower. But now, it was almost as if I was preparing to live in the
public bath. I rubbed my body until it got red. I wished I could take the blackness on my body
off like a black leathery skin and leave the matter at that.

When I got to the dorm, I received a call from Fang Yuke. He wanted to eat together with me
that evening, and he even mysteriously urged me to wear formal clothes. I barely asked what
the matter was when he hung up.

Considering that all my life, I had never had any formal clothing; my only formal clothing was
my military uniform. As I had not changed or washed it in a long time it was full of dirt and
sweat. Indeed, I was too embarrassed to send it to a dry cleaning center, as it had already
been abandoned pitilessly at the military base. I flipped around in the cabinets for a long time
before finding a very formal T-shirt. On the front, in regular calligraphy it said Learned. On the
back, with clerical calligraphy script it said Peking University. This was a shirt that I had

bought on my first day into Peking University. Because it was too orthodox, I was usually afraid
to wear it, so it was brand new. As for my pants, that was even harder. Apart from jeans, I only
had more jeans. The only difference was whether or not there was a hole in them or a loose
thread of cotton wadding. I felt that recently, the nights had become incomparably hot, so with
utmost care, I selected one. Finally, I decided on bermudas. I probably dont have to go over
shoes- itll be the sneakers that I always wear.

After I got downstairs, I didnt recognize Fang Yuke immediately. Because the Fang Yuke in
front of me was wearing a light colored striped shirt with black, well-ironed Western pants. If he
had a bowtie on, today he could directly go to the church to prepare to get married. I
suspiciously walked closer, curiously sizing him up, You really are immaculately dressed, like
an animal![5]

Fang Yuke patted my head, Youre speaking nonsense again.

I mischievously laughed, What day is today?

Fang Yuke did not reply, but merely looked over at my attire, Didnt I ask you to wear some
more formal clothes?

I patted the t-shirt I wore, This is the formal dress I wore when I participated in the opening
ceremony . After you see it, may it allow Headmaster Hong to be wise, and be enlightened. It
isnt formal enough?

Fang Yuke didnt fuss over it. He held me by my hand and led me outside the school.

Fang Yukes hand was very skinny. His fingernails were like little circular bundles, plump, rosy
and clean. Being held with this kind of a hand made my heart go thump, until I got to the
house he was renting outside of school My heart felt as if it was surging forward and filled with
six Audis. Whoa, omg, this was too sudden. I hadnt even had time to buy leopard print
undergarments ..

I bashfully lowered my head and entered Fang Yukes off campus home. The kitchen had an
orangish yellow floor lamp that gently illuminated its surroundings. I could hear the lazy tones
of Joness song Dontknowwhy. On the table, bloomed a rose that appeared both
ambiguous and passionate.

Everything appeared as if they were complementary to each other .

I couldnt help but wring my hands for Julie. I had struggled in the affairs of the heart for so
many years, but I still underestimated Fang Yukes heart towards Zhou Linlins charm. Even if I
had to climb around in the chimney and became as black as a crow or mountain pig, the
brilliant rays of light would still radiate all around, and no one could block it!

I coyly pulled a chair out and sat down, lightly opening my red lips, Thisthe arrangements
of the foreplay is still okay.

Fang Yuke was dazed for a second. After a few seconds he suddenly laughed forcibly, Of
course, I was expecting a day like this to come ever since I became a sensible teenager .

I became even more embarrassed. I didnt think that even though Fang Yuke came from a
literary family, he was so open. He didnt mince his words at all, even if he could not endure it,
he still shouldnt speak so straight-forwardly. For example, saying something like Yearning for
the spring, yet spring never comes // when bearing ones left hand, it is almost as if one is
holding ones essence and so on that contained many hidden meanings. (Authors note:
Ahh.I actually wrote such a vulgar humorous poem*covers up*)

TLN: Spring can refer to sex and essence can refer to that crucial organ XDD

I laughed lewdly and mischievously, Wheres the red wine?

Red wine? Fang Yu Ke blanked.

Put some red wine in those kinds of goblets and shake it. The first sip will make one faint and
the second sip will make you do that. When I saw Fang Yuke so shocked, I explained, unable
to wait.

Oh, I dont want you to get drunk again. Last time you got drunk, you didnt torture me to death
yet. Fang Yuke shook his head like a rattle-drum.

Ugh, if Im going to torture you then get used to it. Its so boring to drink juice. Drinking a few
tons of fruit juice cant get you to that state anyways. Life has to be happy. We must enjoy the
present, obviously. I justified myself and attempted to persuade him.

Let me warn you, in the future, dont drink. How can a lady drink wine like it is water? Last time
you got drunk and almost ruined my reputation and integrity. Fang Yukes eyes were full of
cold light.

Didnt you say your reputation and integrity was already more or less ruined by me? Plus, do
you think that tonight when a single man and a single woman are together, we wont The
more I spoke, the more my eyes seemed to cloud over. I looked at the darkness outside the
window and exposed an evil smile.

Zhou Linlin! Fang Yuke ruthlessly swatted my little dumb head.

Ouch! I couldnt help but hug my head and shout about the pain. F**k, even if was foreplay,
he didnt need to hit so visciously.

Say, how come your brain always goes against the correct lines of reasoning? You wont take
responsibility for yourself, but I still will. How come youre like a hungry wolf thats come across
a smell of fresh meat.

Hey hey hey. Appetite and lust are only natural. Look, people from the ancient times also
grouped lust and appetite in two thirds of the important points of life. It can be clearly seen that
they are so important. He told us that we must love sex and love our character so that we can
liberate our consciousness and liberate our **. You wont go wrong listening to the advice of
our ancestors.

Zhou Linlin the meaning of lust and character is that food and charm are the natural pursuits
of humanity. There is no such thing as your . Well wait until you get an average score that is
85 or higher and then you can talk about liberating your lust with me.

Your meaning is that before I get on top of you I even have to get on top of Peking
University?, I blurted. After I finished, I had began to sweat. I had always joked around with
Julie. I frequently joked that I had brought out the best of Peking University and Peking
University often brought the best out of me. Thus, confronting this impossible mission, like an
average score of 85 or higher, I could only meet this abnormal circumstance if Peking
University continued to bring out the best in me. So it could be discovered but not sought. As I
thought about this, I also justified my catchphrase with Fang Yuke.

I really want to know what your brain is made of that makes it different from other people. In
the past, at least you could lamely pretend, but how come now you have bloomed and are
unrestrained? Fang Yuke helplessly glanced at me, his clear eyes glistening under the light.

I pouted my lip, Then you say, what day is today?

Fang Yuke laughed softly, 15 years ago on this very day, you met the frank and little young
cute boy, me. We shared the bed for a night and then with great kindness, you invited me to be
your husband.

I opened my mouth so wide. I didnt close it for a long time. Could it be that I had already been
so blatantly open when I was little too? GOODJOB!

Fang Yuke continued, I am someone who thinks that promises are worth one thousand in
gold. At the time I promised you, so I will not go back on my promise. But its not good that you
forgot what you previously said so quickly. People have to pay attention to honesty, all right?

I looked at him with wide eyes. Fang Yukes black hair obediently stuck in front of his forehead.
The night wind blew past, and his black hair lightly swayed. I stood up and approached him,
softly touching his hair, and pulling on his cheek, This lady has never said anything that she
actually means, but as youre so idiotic, I will reluctantly persevere. Dont you think you paid
attention to me very early on? Haha.. When I finished I put my hands on my hips and
howled with laughter.

Fang Yuke cupped a fist in his hand and looked at me, Yes. I have taken advantage of you.
When time and the scene changes, maybe I would not have noticed you. Someone like you
has leaned on luck to survive until now, and the greatest prize youve gotten is me. In brief,
today, the significance of this times dinner is to tell you to cherish life and not to go pay
attention to messy handsome guys. Also, study hard. When you get an average that is over 85,
then I will agree to you living here. Until then, Ill go pay a visit to your mother and father and
you can visit my mother and father.

Impossible, 75 is already hard enough. I blinked my eyes at him, miserably making a


counteroffer.

85 is the very least. You cant get a single mark less.

What happens if I get an 85 and your parents dont like me? Wouldnt I still get rejected.

Its already a given that my parents wouldnt like you. Who let me make such a huge loss in
my business transactions Fang Yuke craftily laughed.

Who said so. If you want Zhou Linlin to be clever, then we must respect the old and cherish
the young, follow the Confucius moral injunctions and gather all of the women from good
families to succeed for the numerous mother-in-laws first choice daughter-in-law, and the
husbands fathers dream maiden!

Fang Yuke was overjoyed as he watched me, You can use your big talk to study. I guarantee
you can pass me.

[5] Its an idiom- A dressed up animal;it also means an immoral and despicable person
Chapter 50- This is a Serious Scene of Awkwardness (1)
For this reason, I formulated a strong plan.

1. Every morning I would let Fang Yuke buy me breakfast and then call me to wake me up. Then, I
would begin to study German. Considering the fact he did not even understand German, I would
persuade him to choose German as his second foreign language. This way, we could speak German
words of love in public settings.
2. For my elective course, I would request that Fang Yuke select it for me so that he could help me
study and take notes and record the essential points for exams.
3. Before I slept I would make him read a line of English love letters for me, in order to raise my
English capability.
With this complete, I believed that my grades would take a qualitative leap. Conveniently, I
could also reach another hidden purpose: If Fang Yuke could not continue to persevere, I had
a reason to plead for my 85 points. When the moment came, if it got to a 75, it wouldnt be a
problem.

I definitely didnt expect that Fang Yuke would be able to persevere as greatly as one of the
sons of the Twenty-four Filial Exemplars [1], Like a morning bell and an evening drum [2],
every morning at 7:30, he would definitely call me and wake me up. At night at 10:30, he would
read me a section of a love letter in English. Besides my own classes, he chose the same
elective classes as I did. He even minored in German, acting as a role model with a great
appearance. In a glance, more than half of the semester had already passed. Fang Yuke did
everything easy as pie, while after I woke up, the moment I grabbed a German book, I would
faint and fall asleep again. I didnt understand half of the love letter that Fang Yuke read to me
at night. I estimated that his speech had improved a lot. All my thoughts at the elective classes
went to the person beside me. How did I have the heart to study well? Alas, if I continued on
like this, when I graduated, wouldnt I stay where I was now?

Sometimes when Fang Yuke was tutoring me, I would watch him and be lost in thought. Id
gaze at the look of concentration he used whenever he read books, hair splayed across his
forehead, while his large shoulders would scatter sunlight all over his body creating a golden
halo. Every time when one of these moments came up, I would feel this wasnt real. Because

the pimples on my face continued to spread unchecked, my fat continued to accumulate, so no
matter how I looked at it, I fell from the standard of pleasing to the eyes to a spectacle too
horrible to endure. This was so much so that I wrung my hands for Fang Yuke, and no matter
what, I had to think for the genes of the next generation.

Many worries arose as I was together with Fang Yuke. Besides my inferiority and feelings of
shame, there was also Fang Yukes fan club. In the past, I didnt realize how strong his charm
was when I was just common friends with him. Only now did I find that this rascals karma was
so strong that it exploded. Sometimes when a question came up with my moral standing, the
mailbox was incapable of making landfall normally. When I went to borrow Yukes mailbox, I
found that inside was a pile of love letters that had not yet been opened. Especially after the
summer project, all the junior female students at my alma mater all pretended to use the name
of studying to send mail with straightforward love confessions. That level of achievement was
so much greater than what I had given Xiao Xi. Plus, the content was very rich, new and
original. From dumb language to classical Chinese, there were numerous. I watched Fang
Yuke expressionlessly delete all his mail. I could even hear overly sensitive hearts smashing to
pieces on the floor. But Fang Yuke said, I dont like people younger than me. Theres a
generation gap. At the time, I was so amazed that I couldnt stop. It turned out that Fang Yuke
had intense tastes. Thus, I lewdly requested to look at his A card to see if he was the whole
family set. Instead, Fang Yuke fiercely struck my head. However, in the numerous days that
followed the moment I saw Fang Yuke, I thought of an upper class lady being kept by an
attractive young man. As for Fang Yuke he was intolerable of my strange expressions. In the
end, he upgraded the grade to 85 points to 90 points as punishment to prevent me from
indulging in flights of fancy and to make me quiet my heart and study.

I was really incapable of understanding the degree to which Fang Yuke cared about my
grades, especially the concern towards my English speaking skill. Often, when I couldnt help
but ask him he would say, I like to speak English well, and study well, which made me tie
myself into a knot and die. My English only amounted to How are you? Fine, thank you. And
you? At this stage, wanting me to fluently speak Today, the chef at the canteen is really not
bad. The balance between the fat and meat on the red braised pork is exactly right, the oil isnt
greasy, and the quantity is sufficient and things like that was quite a stretch. Indeed, it made
things difficult for me. This was the first time I hoped that the motherland would be sufficiently
powerful to open the whole world to The New West, making all the citizens in the whole world
study Chinese. Then, they would have to take the Chinese TOEFL test and IELTS and things
like that. If they had the skill, just use Chinese to lament about red braised pork. Let them taste
my pain! Hmph!

When I heard 500 Sentences of English Colloquial Speech I was at a loss as I sat on the bed
and asked, Julie, if I continue on with my grades, how much do you think I can get for the
midterm?

Julie spread out her facial mask on her face like a white faced blood-sucking vermin as she lay
down on the bed. Her eyelids did not lift as she spoke, Whats up? Since when did you care
about your grades? In any case, just try hard not to fail the course. Last year,didnt you pass
every course? Look at how generous our teachers are.

Then do you think the teacher will so generous and let me get a 90? I hugged my pillow as I
looked at her.

Julie curiously looked at me, Since when did you want to improve yourself like this? Isnt your
life just pursuing meeting the minimum standard? After being with Fang Yuke, your level has to
increase as well?

I pursed my lip, My life is made up of awful numbers. Right now, Fang Yuke told me that my
requirement for moving out is 90 points, and hes using this condition to force me

Say, why dont you have any future prospects? Are the three of us so infectious that you want
to move out? I think youre definitely being eaten. A rascal who neglects ones friends when
smitten with a new love, when the time comes dont find us and cry. Julie bared her fangs and
brandished her claws as she spoke.

I laughed foolishly, Oh, arent I giving you guys an empty bed to put junk on? Give me an idea.
How can I make Fang Yuke give up on such a ridiculous condition? My mom doesnt even
have such high standards. The moment I look at those warped abcds, I feel like my brain is
either accumulating water or it is cerebral hemorrhage. The moment I look at Chinese
characters, I want to give my greetings to Confucius and tell him off for being a self-centered
show off. Say, why is my mood so passive? If I test 90 points, doesnt that mean that studying
is a very lowly thing? The more you disgust it, the more you will win the desired outcome?
Alas, how can I find such a great boyfriend whos so eager to study. In the past, didnt he also
come up with the idea to go to three classes and skip the other two? How come now, every
time it gets to our elective class, we must go. And he even supervises me so that Im not
allowed to go to bed or eat snacks. Did I find a boyfriend or a dad? I painfully grumbled.

The phone rang. Julie and I mutually hoped for a long time, waiting for the other person to pick
up the phone. Unfortunately, the other end was not patient and didnt wait for us to finish
competing who was lazier, and who would answer it. The phone cut off.

Julie kept her face rigid as she said, Zhou Linlin, I think that only Fang Yuke can stand you
being so lazy. After you pass this village, you wont have this shop. Hurry up and marry.
Otherwise, when someone suddenly begins to regret and wants to withdraw a product, whats
to be done?

I had just thought of saying something when my cell phone rang. I picked it up. It was Fang
Yuke.

I dont want to listen to English love letters anymore. I dont understand it. You can read some
Chinese originals to me. The moment I picked it up I unhappily said this. Maybe I couldnt
persevere.

Last year you were exempt from having to take English. This year, you better recover and
quickly start studying. If you cant pass the grade 4 Peking University exam, then you cant get
your diploma. Be obedient, dont act willfully and make a scene. Fang Yukes voice
unhurriedly came through the phone.

Ugh youre so annoying! Just like my dad. I angrily spoke. Not waiting for Fang Yuke to
speak, I hung up. After I hung up, I was also shocked by myself.

Julie glanced at me, Did you eat gunpowder? Its so difficult for him to read English to you
every night, and its even free English audio, but why dont you cherish it? Listening to Fang
Yuke speak English like an English gentleman, is his family about to migrate to Great Britain?

I pouted, Brilliant students will forever not understand the pain of weak students. When
teachers explain things one time, its carved into his brain and he remembers it so clearly. I
wish I could replay the scene. As for me, sleepiness is like a conditioned reflex for me. It
sounds like Tangseng is reciting Buddhist scriptures. So how come he can use those kinds of
requests and put them on me? Also, I already honestly told him I wanted to live in his house,
so if he doesnt want me to, he can just refuse, right? WHy would he heap so many
requirements on me? These past few days, every time I dream, I dream of test grades. Ive
almost returned to that time before the Gaokao. Everytime I took the Gaokao, at least I still had
a psychological teacher to coach me. Now I am completely relying on myself to adjust to this.

Fang Yuke is not wrong in making you study well. Look at you, forgetting yourself with love. If
he didnt require that you test 90 points, you wouldnt even be able to test into the minimum
standard. Thus, he still has a lot of foresight. He understands you so thoroughly and he even
used something that enticed you the most to restrict you. So able! Julie said.

I dont care! I have to show my anger in case I am threatened by him. Perhaps I dont have to
go through all this pain to reach my final goal. I diffidently played with my phone, waiting for
Fang Yuke to call and comfort me. After I waited for such a long time, Fang Yuke didnt call me
at all so I didnt know if he was angry at me.

The second day, the moment I woke up it was already past 10. These few months, Fang Yuke
was the first to call me. It seemed it was impossible for me to intimidate him. It was more or
less if he was the one to intimidate me. Yesterday, my nameless fire had offended him. By and
by I would have to go beg for forgiveness. Oh dear.

I sat on the edge of the bed and watched as Julie answered a mysterious call that made her
panic and pace around the room. It was rare to see Julie act like this. She was usually such a
precocious person, she was just like a diamond with 256 surfaces. Every surface could cater to
different circumstances. She was my idol and final target. What kind circumstances could
actually baffle her

I looked at her with confusion, Julie, whats wrong? Its so early in the morning and youre
acting a pendulum clock. Walking left and right, clapping your hands as you walk; it makes my
head hurt just looking at you.

Youre the one who slept as if you had fainted. Youve already slept for 12 hours, so dont
push the blame on me. Julie continued to pace.

Then are you exercising your body? Is this a new yoga style? You also need to pat your arms.
The elderly women at the park all exercise like that by the street.They walk in the reverse, and
while and they clap their palms while they walk. Reportedly, it can slow down the aging
process.

Julie stopped walking and glared at me with an extremely deep look in her eyes.

I developed a sense of fear in my heart, What are you looking at? Dont tell me youve fallen in
love with me..I have a boyfriend and our body organs are nearly the same. I like people with
male hormones. Both my hands protected my chest, as I deliberately lowered my voice
longer as I spoke.

Thats enough, thats enough, dont show off your good looks shamelessly. Whose body is the
same as yours? Are the things we both have in front of our bodies the same? She pointed at
my exposed bra strap and continued, This toy that you have is only a decoration. Theres no
difference if you wear it or not. Youre full of male hormones and still act afraid of me? I was
infuriated, but I couldnt find anyway to retort so I became very sad . Julie suddenly sat up
straight and looked at me, Linlin, how do you feel that I treat you?

I wiped away my eye gum, Not bad.

Speak earnestly.

Very menacingly. I could only tell the truth.

Julie ignored my words and continued, I usually help you with so many things so at least help
me with one thing.

Im pretty busy, and I even have to prepare for the myth of 85 points..I purposely spoke
without hurrying.

If you do this, Ill help you settle with your problem of living together.

Really? I opened my eyes wide as I looked at her, Tell me what the problem is quickly! As
friends, knives pierce both sides [1] no matter where we are so I will definitely help you. I
patted my chest as a guarantee.

Its simple, you just have to help me go meet a guy.

What does he look like?

I dont know thats why Im making you go. Hasnt there been a New Zealander-Chinese who
has been pursuing me recently? He came to see me this time when he came back to the
country. I saw his picture, but I havent met the real person yet so I want you to go see him for
me.

He said we have a lot of fate together, so he definitely wanted to meet me. I feel that guys are
all wild animals. How can they say stuff like fate? I just want to know if he will still say that we
have fate if he sees someone who looks like you. If he still perseveres, Ill go take a look. I also
havent had an interesting experience recently.

What are you saying? Oh so youre saying that my face will cause people to lose their appetite
right? Then how would Fang Yuke like me?

So your Fang Yuke is a good man who cares about fate, so much so that he wont care about
aesthetics or intelligence.

Hey I was speechless, I have a very energetic personality.

Yep, definitely very energetic. When people cant brag about their beauty they brag about their
cuteness. If they cant compliment on cuteness, they can only compliment their essence. You
can even take your energy and turn it into some kind of positive word

If you speak another word I wont help you go to this mysterious meeting. Also, if that man and
I fall in love at first sight, you better not cry.

Oh let it go. Do you think every man is like Fang Yuke, unique in their taste? Weve agreed.
Tomorrow at 4:00 pm, at the Shisheng Yuan Restaurant. He is called Wang Yimo, commonly
referred to as Xiao Mo. 23 years old, studying in a university at New Zealand. His mom is a
painter and his dad is a business man. He also opened his own business. He mainly does
trade in cars. Theres so much to his background. Dont reveal the cloven foot [2]. I will also
show up but I will sit farther away. I will not let him see me.

I absentmindedly agreed and got off the bed to wash my face and rinse my mouth. I hadnt
received a call from Fang Yuke the whole day. When I called him, his phone was turned off. I
called his dorm, and his dorm mates said that he left early and he even said he would live in
his off campus home. I always felt that my heart was not too strong. I faintly felt something bad
would happen.

It was said that things like meeting online friends was unfamiliar at first but well accustomed
soon after . Last time when I met Wen Tao I was very nervous, afraid that I would meet an ugly
hacker and hang myself. This time, I was merely going through the motions, in a play about
pure friendship. I had no thoughts of bearing burdens. The most important thing was that I
didnt need to put on makeup. My original face without makeup was great. The uglier, the
better.

Thus, I lead on a table in Shisheng Yuan Restaurant . Through the glass I could see sparrows
bouncing around in the wutong trees back and forth. Julie wore a peaked cap on her head and
a big mask, hiding in the corner. I was afraid that other people wouldnt know what was going
on and would think she was a spy.

I had almost fallen asleep but the legendary online user hadnt gotten to the scene yet. I
organized the table and prepared to beat it. It was even better if I could stand him up. It would
even simplify matters.

When I lifted my head, I saw a lofty, tall and sturdy man standing in front of me. He
suspiciously sized me up: Are you Julie?

No. I talked without thinking. After I replied I realized my mission and replied, Sorry, I am.

The man scanned me from head to toe, Ridiculous.

Thanks to Fang Yukes recent English coaching, I actually understood what this word meant. I
glared at him, thinking, Your mom is the one whos amusing.

I resentfully said, Arent you Chinese? Why are you speaking English? I havent passed my
fourth year yet. Speak Chinese.

That person laughed, quietly sitting down to look at the menu. After awhile he said, Just now, I
didnt say you were ridiculous, I was sayingis she the one who asked you to come?

I instantly began to worry. Could I really have been exposed so quickly?

What are you talking about, I dont understand. I timidly said.

You definitely arent Julie. She speaks differently from you, shes much more gently.

Then you are really lowly. You just had to find a vicious one. When I finished, I regretted it. I
had sold Julie out so quickly. It seemed I had no hope for my life of living together with Fang
Yuke.

Haha, it doesnt matter. This time I came back to see what changes there were in Peking
University people. When I was little, my mom came here to sketch and I would play. So many
years have passed in a blink of an eye. The man sighed.

I glanced at his thick eyebrows and big eyes and his Northern Chinese appearance. What was
he called again? Wang Yimo?

You arent that old anyways. How come youre pretending to be old? Didnt you come back to
see Julie?

I saw her. Its the one that keeps looking at us, the one hiding in the corner

I silently thought, Virtue is one foot tall while the devil is ten feet tall [3]. Julie has been smart
for her whole life, but Im afraid shell be wrapped around this persons finger.

Wang Yimo laughed and said, Actually, I wasnt sure, but seeing your expression can be
counted as a kind of tacit approval. Dont worry. I believe she has her reasons to choose to use
this kind of method to meet me.

I forced myself to laugh. I didnt know what to say. This kind of feeling was was like when you
perform in an opera by yourself, the audience members run to the stage and say, Everything
youve been acting is a lie. I awkwardly stood there and didnt know if I should storm off in a
huff or argue strongly.

Looking askance, I saw Yuke wearing a thin black Western suit as he came in. I immediately
lowered my head. Right now, if I was to be discovered by him on this date in my disguised
form, I would have to explain for a super long time again. I still hadnt apologized for my anger
yesterday. So I shouldnt look for trouble.

With one hand, I covered my cheeks, as I leaned my head 45 degrees, hoping to bury myself
in the corner. From the corner of my eye, I saw Fang Yuke was followed by a girl in the prime
of her youth who was seating herself next to him. I became agitated immediately and turned
around at once.

She looked like a girl in the prime of her youth but with a careful look it seemed like she was
also 25 or 26. She wore a red wine colored overcoat that exposed two legs that were tightly
wrapped in black leggings, with slender big legs. With her eight centimeter high Versace
leather shoes, and her pretty and flirtatious red ribbons that were twisted around her ankles.
This mature and sophisticated womanit was the style that Fang Yuke liked.

My heart had 10,000 whys, and I wished I could immediately rush up and go examine him. My
mom was right. Fang Yuke was great everything, but he was just too hot. My potential rivals in
love included women from age 99 to those who were had barely learnt how to walk; it was at
least 50% of the earths population; really too much. Look, the virtuous women are finally
coming to join in the fun.

Wang Yimo followed my line of sight and looked at them and spoke, You know them?

I shook my head, I only know half.

Understood. Caught two-timing, eh?

I glared at him, What eyes did you use to see him two-timing? This is called
normal social activities. We have to give him enough space. Freedom, got it?

Your expression just now was like the primary wife sizing up the second wife. Wang Yimo
laughed.

Hey, please speak nicely. Dont think that just because youre Julies boyfriend Ill let you off.
Just now, I was only curious and observing. When I finished, my eyes followed Fang Yuke.

The hateful red clothed woman actually extended her claws towards Fang Yukes hair. She
pushed Fang Yukes bangs aside and even softly said something to Fang Yuke. This was
obviously two-timing. In any case, Fang Yuke enjoyed it and continued to drink his coffee. Hey,
that rascal, when I touched his hair, he even set himself against me. I was done for. I saw that
she might as well be the primary wife.

My mood had fallen to an all-time low immediately. I foolishly thought that I had gotten first
prize, and picked up a hot guy by the road. Since then, my life revolved around one thing. It
was just like marrying and having a child. You didnt need to worry about anything. The
omnipotent Tian Ya was right- if one could rely on guys, female pigs would climb trees.

I looked at Wang Yimo and inquired, Say, if I was to go over and splash her with coffee, would
it seem like it came out of a novel?

Wang Yimo shook his head and laughed, Just now, werent you very optimistic? How come
you changed so quickly?

I hmphed, Arent I just adapting to the situation right now?

Wang Yimo continued, Say dont you think its strange? The two of us are sitting here. Youre
secretly looking at your boyfriend and Im secretly looking at my girlfriend.

The moment I heard this, I cheered, Thats right. Other people would even think that we were
fighting lovers. Were all turning our heads to drink water, absent-mindedly.

Maybe I spoke too loudly as Fang Yuke suddenly turned around, seeing me laugh foolishly by
myself. He smiled resentfully.

I curbed my smile and said to Wang Yimo, I seem to have blown my cover. Do you think hell
misunderstand that we have no dishonest relations between us? Do I have to say it?

Wang Yimo laughed, What does it have to do with me? You have to first ask Julie if she
agrees. Does she want to meet me? When he finished, he pointed in the direction that Julie
was sitting.

I sighed, What play are we acting out? So disorganized.

[1] : lit. knifes piercing both sides (idiom) / fig. to attach a great importance to
friendship, up to the point of being able to sacrifice oneself for it

Chapter 52- This is a Serious Scene of Awkwardness (3)


This is a Seriously Awkward Scene (3)

While I was sighing, Fang Yuke had already walked in front of me. He gentlemanly extended a
hand to Wang Yimo, Im Linlins friend, Fang Yuke. At this, I was suddenly offended that he
didnt say boyfriend, but he said friend.

Wang Yimo blinked at me, Hello, Im the online friend, Wang Yimo.

The red clothed girl also followed Fang Yuke over. From a closeup, the red clothed girl was
very noble and stylish. She was just as benevolent as Mary, sufficiently rousing a mans
Oedipus complex. She used Western style and English to discuss with Fang Yuke.
Occasionally, she would even laugh at me. Her smile was full of the hint of observation.

My heart thumped. The scene of Fang Yuke using English to read love letters to me suddenly
hit me. I felt unwell from head to toe, so much so that I wanted to puke. This was like turning
around and dancing on a foggy night. The crystal shoes underneath ones feet swelled and
pounded the floor. I opened both my arms trying to smell the balmy earth as much as I could,
thinking that it was romantic. When the lights brightened, I realized that I was only in front of a
mosquito infested bathroom, wearing straw sandals and smelling the marsh gas while I hopped
around. All the beautiful things originated in fancy, and all of the things that touched me
originated from showering affection on an uninterested party.

My whole body went cold but I still forced myself to smile, This sisters English is so good.

Fang Yuke told me, She grew up in London. She doesnt really know Chinese so she can only
speak English. He didnt explain her identity or her name. Was it because it was not sufficient
or because it was inconvenient?

The red clothed girl laughed at me, one hand still unconsciously going up Fang Yukes elbow.
She was naturally intimate with him.

I suddenly understood. He wanted me to learn and study English to make me into a noble kind
of girl. Did he want to make me like her? F**k, I still had the f**king fate of being a reflection of
other people. In the past when I was secretly in love with Xiao Xi, I always thought I could be
his sunshine. But now, I thought that I could always be Fang Yukes sunshine. I didnt expect
that I was still surviving under someone elses shadow. I thought I had become a princess but I
didnt expect that another princess had appeared. Thus I immediately turned pale and
automatically turned into an impromptu humorous clown.

When a boyfriend is together with a female, he will not even feel like giving an explanation.
What else can I say?

I stiffly asked, This sister is

My heart had a thousand prayers that this sister who couldnt speak English had a blood
relationship with Fang Yuke or 1/16 or 1/32, it was all fine.

But Fang Yuke touched his nose and said, I will tell you in the future. Its a long story.

When we were picking our psychology course, it said that if someone is not willing to look into
your eyes when they speak to you, and touches their nose, then they are lying.

I sneered. My brain blanked all of a sudden. I dont know what to say. Everything has come too
suddenly. Even if I havent received his phone call for a day and a night, this type of indefinite
mood is not that unexpected.

I opened my mouth, but nothing would come out. My throat seemed to have a group of thick
cotton wad stuck in it. I concentrated and spoke, Fang Yuke, Ill bring Xiao Mo around. He said
he hasnt come to Peking University in a long time. Ill bring him around, bring him around.

Fang Yuke looked at me and pulled me aside, glaring, Who is he? How come you always
make people worry about you?

I swallowed my saliva, Yes, I always make people worry about me. I dont know how to speak
fluent English and I cant score 90 points. Right now, I dont even care about looking at myself
in the mirror because I know that Im already super ugly. The online friend matter is hard to
explain in a few words. Its a long story.

Fang Yuke looked at me, Meeting an online friend is a long story? Are you hiding anything
from me?

I lowered my head, staring hard at the floor. Fang Yuke looked back at that woman and turned
to me, Today, I still have some things to take care of. Wait for me to finish and then we can
talk.

I looked at his back as he bitterly laughed and softly explained something to the woman.
Inserting a few words, I heard misunderstanding, coincidence.

See how important English is?

If you understood those important terms, you wouldnt be tricked like a sillyhead like me.
From what I knew, he anxiously wanted to explain something to someone, taking my
coincidence with him into a misunderstanding. And the most worrying thing was that the person
that needed an explanation only got a Lets put this discussion off until later opportunity.

I pulled Wang Yimo and smiled to them, and then slammed the door and left.

Before the restaurant was a wutong tree whose leaves were turning yellow. The wind of the
beginnings of winter blew past, the leaves fell off gradually. Sunlight pierced through branches
and threads, until it shone on me. I felt the light was somewhat shaky, so shaky that it was hard
for me to see things from far away. Also, the moist liquid that was about to fall from my eyes
fell. I lifted my head and looked at the sky, trying to walk forward like my life depended on it.

Wang Yimo awkwardly stood behind me, Thisshould I go find Julie? Maybe Julie doesnt
know what happened.

I touched my face, Wait for awhile. If you go back to find Julie and Fang Yuke sees you, hell
laugh at me again. Hell say: Zhou Linlin, youre stepping on two boats at the same time, even
with online friends. Whats the use of trying?

I walked around Weiming lake for a long time, passing by the deck chair I had cried on before. I
could not hold back the tears anymore.

Wang Yimo went panicky in an instant, Ill still grab Julie. Otherwise, Julie will think I bullied
you. When he finished, he grabbed his phone and called.

Julie really acted out the entire set. Her sim card was in my cell phone.

I touched my tears wanting to grab my sim card, but I couldnt find it.

I went through all my pockets, putting my canvas bag to one side, but I couldnt find the card. I
bitterly smiled at Wang Yimo and said, I lost it. People are like this. When its there, they take

it for granted, its only when they lose it that they think to look for it. Since its lost, its lost. If its
not determined to be mine, then its not mine. I might as well go change a phone number and
start over.

Wang Yimo carefully worded, That..arent you make this issue more serious than it needs to
be? Maybe this was only a normal meeting. Didnt you just say that you would both leave
space for each other?

I looked at him and shook my head, Its not the same. In the past, Fang Yuke didnt care and
could even show me some love letters that were sent to him. He didnt hide anything. After all,
he didnt care about those love letters. But now he is lying for someone else, and not
explaining something to me . There is definitely a problem.

Wang Yimo didnt know what to say. He twisted his hands and said, But I feel that just now, he
was speaking to that woman very naturally.

I suddenly thought of something. Wang Yimo was an American Born Chinese, he should
understand what Fang Yuke said to her.

I immediately asked him nervously, Do you remember what he said?

Wang Yimo thought about it, That woman said, Someones jealous, and then Fang Yuke
said, It was only a coincidence. Dont misunderstand randomly. Then that woman said, I dont
believe youI couldnt hear the rest because I was farther away. Plus, I dont have the habit
of eavesdropping.

TLN: Youve already eavesdroppedthat much and you stop in the middle?! What a
coincidence T_T

My tiny bit of hope was suddenly crushed. Life really made one depressed.

When I returned to the dorm, Julie was already sitting down uneasily.

I angrily and powerlessly said, That Wang Yimo knew that I was a fake. He also spotted you.
So you better just walk off with him.

Julies face was completely flabbergasted, What happened just now with you and Fang Yuke
and that woman? Did Fang Yuke misunderstand what was happening between you and Wang
Yimo?

I waved my hand, How come you didnt ask whether I misunderstood them?

Julie honestly replied, Fang Yuke has plenty of ability to settle you down. Even if you
misunderstand you have nowhere to go. If he ignores you and leaves with that person, what
will you do?

I angrily kicked her, This old woman went to go buy meat for you and youre still double-
crossing your employer? This time, Ive played around enough with him! Youre free now!

Julie was stunned as she looked at me, No way. Things have yet to take shape and theres
already a misunderstanding? You didnt even catch a couple in the act on the bed

I lay on the bed, disinclined to continue speaking. If I caught a couple in the act on the bed then
that would be great because I would admit failure. But now I was hung in the air. What did this
count as? In the past, Fang Yuke would force me to study English almost as if something big
would happen if I didnt pass the class. He spoke some fluent English readily. Did this have
something to do with that woman? Why was someones relationship a long story? What kind of
relationship would make it into a long story? An ex-girlfriend? Someone you admired?

I was spread out on my bed like a pancake. I rolled the blankets up but I still couldnt sleep. I
got up to see if the phone had rang or not. Cautiously and solemnly, I placed the receiver in a
good position, staring at it for a long time. I could only get back onto my bed and be a pancake
again.

The other three people finally couldnt stand it anymore. Ah Tao in the lower bunk yelled, You
arent allowing anyone to sleep just because youre yearning for love

I pouted my lip, feeling wronged, as I hugged my blankets and sat in meditation like a lotus
flower. Wang Jie who was across from me lifted her head to look at me, Linlin, sitting on top
like that in the dead of night is very frightening. In the past, it was okay since your skin was
black but now its gotten a bit whiter with great difficulty. Why do you come out and scare
people?

I pouted my lip again and lay down as stiff as a corpse.

Julie was sitting further away as she looked at me. Then, she looked down at the bunk below
her, Jieer, Linlin doesnt try to rebut anything we say. It seems that what happened in the
morning is still bothering her.

Wang Jie sat up, Julie, in the future can you not talk to me like youre chaste? My heart can
only take so much burden.

Ah Tao also sat up and began talking, Linlin whats upsetting you?

My heart silently thought: Rubbish! If I didnt get upset, would I be able to silently rouse your
attentions?

Wang Jie got up to pour a cup of water, as she said, Linlin, you better tell us from the
beginning. You can hold it in if you want, but you cant not let us sleep peacefully.

I saw everyone being so enthusiastic, so I sat up again and cleared my throat. Then, I
recounted the events of the morning.

The first half hour, I talked about the history of feelings between Julie and Wang Yimo. Wang
Jie wanted to see Wang Yimos picture even if she had to die to do so. Ah Tao wanted to see
their chat history. Thus, the three of us seemed like we were watching horror movies in the
dead of night, gathering in front of the laptop in the pitch darkness, as we dug up all of the
gossip behind this situation. Only when we finished did we return to the main point I was about
to get to.

Ah Tao laughed crazily in her lower bunk, Linlin, Im not speaking badly about you but that
woman is older than us by 5 or 6 years. Even if she wanted to, she couldnt compete with you.

Wang Jie cut Ah Tao off, What are you talking about? 25,26 year old people are the most
mature. Right now, how come love between older women and younger men are trending?
Thats because younger bros havent had a chance to strive into society so they will want to
seek novelty in all women at the workplace. Plus it is very strange that Fang Yuke can speak
fluent English. Even for those of us practicing speech, when we speak English there will still be
a Chinese accent. So, its very possible.

Julie lay in her bed, sticking up a leg as she said, Unless this is the legendary story of Han
Meimei and Li Lei?

My eyebrows went up as I asked, What Han Meimei and Li Lei? I must be Polly.

Julie continued, Dont tell me you dont know the classic story of Han Meimei and Li Lei? Han
Meimei and Li Lei are best friends, that sentence, made a lot of people sob. Obviously they
love each other, but they have not made their feelings known to each other. In the end, Han
Meimei flew abroad by herself, leaving Li Lei in the country, a lonely soul. Thus, Li Lei studied
English with all his might so that one day,he could accompany Han Meimei.

I stuck out my tongue, Julie, in middle school when you were studying English did you lean on
such sexual fantasies to pass? That way you wouldnt get sleepy when you learned it. In the
future, I will also need to have your imagination so that maybe I can pass the 8th level of
English with half of the ability you used to weave that story together.

Julie disdainfully said, Studying is boring so you have to find some pleasure. I feel Fang Yuke
speaks so fluently maybe to chase after that mysterious woman. Perhaps he has always been
following her footsteps so that everything he does has been influenced by her. And thats why
he makes you study like your life depends on it. Its a pity that your rock brain cant understand.
Even if you die, you wont work hard. He met his Venus, and feels youre even more
vulgar

Ah Tao cut in, Julie dont scare Linlin. Tonight shes been suffering from insomnia. Are we
going to stay awake with her?

I sat there blankly. I still hadnt jumped out from Julies story.

After a long time, I finally reacted, Then Julie, since he likes to follow her so much, how come
he would find someone with a rock brain like me? Shouldnt he find someone like her?

Julie lowered her head as she thought, Maybe he wants to get rid of her reflection so hes
giving himself a ferocious dose of medicine.

Saying this, my heart was chilled.

Ah Tao immediately said, Julie reads too many romantic novels. Shes someone who says
that she has leukemia if she nosebleeds when she sees someone. She cant even work
through her own matters. Linlin dont listen to her. If she was really awesome, then she
wouldnt try to meet up with such a black dragon of an online friend.

Chapter 53- Awkwardness Upgrade (1)


The Awkwardness Escalates

The night passed without sleep. After thinking deeply and making a few speeches about the
current situation, I had still yet to reach a beautiful conclusion. On the second day, I had
turned into a kind of national treasure, the dark circles around my eyes looked like the effect of
smoky makeup.

People were just like this. In the past when Fang Yuke called me to wake me up to study hard,
I had raged in my heart. After that, I put all my rage and despair into tackling these textbooks.
Now I scarcely realised that these textbooks had, because of my excessive actions, been
soaked with unlimited drops of milk, soy milk and meat stock. The phone now was really quiet,
as if the past few days were mere hallucinations.

After staring at my handphone for quite a while, I considered the fact that it was quite possible
that it was unknown whether Fang Yuke had called me. It was better for me to head to the
business centre to order my original phone card. My heart harboured these wishes and
dreams, but when I had placed the phone sim card into its slot, there was not a single SMS. If it
werent for the fact that there was an advertisement from the Police selling pepper spray, I
would have thought that the phone was broken.

My heart had hit rock bottom, as did my stomach. Although this was a crisis, gorging myself in
the canteen didnt feel like it suited my despairing heart. However, I would only have the
strength to think if I had food in my stomach so I should go get a tray and eat some food in the
canteen.

I didnt expect that while queuing in the canteen, the person standing in front of me would be
Xiao Xi. I remembered how meeting him at that distant time, at that distant place, would get
my heart thumping, rendering me incapable of speaking or making any eloquent speeches,
only to sigh with incomparable regret when Id left.

However, meeting him today, my heart was calm and stable, as if my my past love was
something that had happened in a previous life. I was truly the model of a simple-minded
woman who was fickle in love. If one were to count from then to now, it was about three
months ago that I could just wrap Fang Yuke up in a bundle to throw him to the back of my
mind. Yet it was only somewhere in between that time that I had come to the me now with
such conflicted emotions. Only recently did I manage to crush him into tiny pieces in my mind.
If I said it this way, breaking up was not such a heart wrenching thing.

Meeting Xiao Xi, after counting for a bit, I realised that ever since that situation had concluded,
Id yet to meet up with him. According to reason, I should have thanked him in person. If it
werent for him provoking Fang Yuke, I reckon that until now, Fang Yuke and I would not have
progressed a single step. However, every time I mentioned to Fang Yuke about meeting Xiao

Xi for a meal, Fang Yuke always said that Xiao Xi was too busy and was unable to find time to
entertain us, as if Xiao Xi was some kind of prime minister.

Xiao Xi was also very surprised when he saw me, Are you still busy recently?

I waved my hands, Ive never been busy before. You also know that Im someone who likes to
waste my days away.

Xiao Xi revealed his dimples that I hadnt seen for a long time, I knew that Fang Yuke has
been lying to me. Id previously wanted to invite you both out to a meal but he said you were
extremely busy.

Fang Yuke was really two-faced. Xiao Xi and I had a pure relationship The next time I saw
him I would properly teach him a lesson.

Xiao Xi continued, How have your discussions on migrating been? The last time, Fang Yuke
was really troubled over this. Have you come to any conclusion?

Migration? I opened my eyes wide. It was unknown whether or not I would scare someone if I
opened my smoky eyes any larger.

Isnt Yukes family going to migrate to England? He said that he wanted to discuss it with you
right? Xiao Xi looked at me questioningly.

The workers at the front of the canteen were impatiently urging us to order, so Xiao Xi wanted
to turn around, but I viciously pulled him to stop.

When did he tell you this information?

Its been quite a few months. Didnt he tell you? No way. Xiao Xi looked at me with worry.

I was frozen to the spot, stumped for words. Millions and millions of things went through my
mind: a few months ago, when Fang Yuke knew that his whole family was going to migrate,
could it be that he was looking forward to going down the London river with that beauty, reciting
those love notes that I could not understand; those that he had previously read to me? Could it
be that in his heart he was a little bit guilty, so he used that high score of 95 to mock me? Even
if he was willing to bring me to England, I would not necessarily be able to settle down well
there. I would not annoy him by tagging along with him to England. I had self awareness. I was
aware that with my standard of English, I would be hard pressed to enter even an ordinary
university. Wouldnt I continue to hug on Peking Universitys thigh without letting go? Fang
Yuke could have avoided going through so much effort. Concealing the fact that he was going
to migrate for so many months was really not worth the trouble.

At the same time that I was lamenting, the projector in my head was coming up with so many
different scenarios. One of them included that mysterious woman dress in the crimson flowy
shirt with that skirt, with her glittering headdress, holding on to my husband while leisurely
walking in the misty rain. In another moment, a Great Britain airplane flashed across my mind,
leaving me, this solitary person alone in disarray. I clenched my fists and wanted to to point my
middle finger into the sky, towards that airplane. However, I could only powerlessly bend over,
turning into the shape of a giant question mark.

I smiled at Xiao Xi and said, I suddenly remember that Id already eaten lunch. Good bye!
After saying this, I made a mad dash towards the dorm to fall into a deep sleep.

My brain was only used to thinking about simple issues. When I had encountered this kind of
complicated situation in the past, it had eventually collapsed with a loud crash. When thinking
about all these logical problems, it had allowed me some margin to feel sorry for myself.

I felt cold, strangely cold. It was as if Xiao Xis words were like life-and death, stabbing straight
into my heart. I was unable to move a single step. I was completely enlightened. I had found
out the truth of the matter but I had never expected that this would be the eventual outcome.
Being two-timed was okay, being someone elses shadow was okay, and at the very least one
day I would be able to wear a hurt expression, accusing him in a righteous manner in order to
make him confess his sins. However, Fang Yuke knew what kind of method would be able to
pull out the grass from the roots. While helping me develop a fluency for English, the moment I
was hopeless, he would be able to run back to his homeland one random day, without even
leaving a single thread of suspicion.

He would, finally, meet me before he leaves to tell me, Sorry, the one I love isnt you. I was
only fighting within myself to find someone who was completely different from her. However, I
could not help myself but to turn you into someone like her. In the end, I realised that my heart
only has room for her.

After that, on the second day, by the time I had come up with a response and finally seen the
light, he would have long since taken his luggage and stepped onto the plane.

And my feelings would be cast to the side in this way, like a palace eunuch.

I suddenly felt like I wanted to be like Wei Xiaobao. When he had been tied to the stool,
Grandfather Hai could strain his throat to call out, leave the chicken behind!

It was that kind of friendship that would last forever- it was just a moment of misunderstanding.

I had guessed that this relationship would eventually end, however I could never have
anticipated the degree to which ending the relationship would hurt.

I took out my phone and punched in the familiar phone numbers. The song I Dont Know Why
by Norah Jones played through the phone, as if mocking the me who was pestering him for sex
that day. My tears were going to fall so I wanted to hang up.

However, at that moment, I heard Fang Yukes magnetic voice, Im busy at the moment, Ill
call you back in a little while. After saying this, he hung up.

The teardrops finally clustered together, even for this, he was one step ahead of me. Even at
this time, he was the one who could hang up faster than I did. I wanted to take advantage of
the fact that he had not yet asked for the breakup, to be the one to turn around first so that I
wouldnt be that pitiful person.

I was unreconciled with this. I sent out a text message, Fang Yuke, lets break up. Im tired.
After sending this message, I felt completely numb. However, a wise man submits to his
circumstances. Right now, I had lost and had nothing left. I had to leave myself a bit of pride. If

Fang Yuke was a man, he would take advantage of this situation. He wouldnt be petty,
wanting to be the one who brought up the matter of breaking up. In this kind of situation, the
one who was allowed to take action should be the one who would get hurt, therefore it should
be the grace of a gentleman to not blame me.

In the afternoon, I picked up a classic piece of romantic fiction and read through it extremely
quickly. Within that piece of fiction, I believed that there was some semblance of truth. I had to
take some preventative measures, because if I didnt and was attacked in the night, I would
give up all hope in the world, choosing to jump into the Wu Ming river- not drowning but just
having my head stuck in the silt, suffocating to death. Feelings were of the utmost importance
but ones body was given by ones parents. When my mind was clear, I would definitely not do
anything that would let my parents down. Normally, you would see that I was quarreling with
them all day, however, if they were ever to go crazy one day, choosing to marry me to a bald,
crippled hoodlum, I would still be able to remain filial and follow that bald guy. However, if they
were provoked by Fang Yuke to the point of fainting, that would not be good. People who
committed suicide for the sake of love did not originally plan to do so , it was only that they had
made that decision within 0.01 seconds. It was possible that 0.01seconds after jumping off,
being blown by the wind, after regaining their senses, they began to regret their actions while in
the air.

As a result, I had to mentally prepare myself, I definitely could not allow myself to crumble. If
Fang Yuke did not want such an outstanding and wonderful woman like me, it was his loss.
When he had grown old and could not pee properly, he would think about today and stamp his
feet with a lifetimes worth of regret.

Chapter 54- Awkwardness Upgrade (2)


The Awkwardness Escalates (2)

In the dorm, I calmly sat down and thought, if I thought about this positively, while examining
the situation, Fang Yuke had made me study English well. Maybe he had done that so we
could travel across the ocean , and rest and fly together[1]. But I kept failing to understand.
Immigration was something that concerned my whole family. According to logic, he should give
me freedom and let me and my immediate family talk it over. I wasnt an item that could
randomly be passed from person to person. Without even coming over to greet them, he
actually expected me to migrate with his whole family.

Before that, wouldnt we would both meet each others parents first? Unless right now there
was still the red clothed women, who acted like a tiny moth, still hanging around?! Thus, the
possibility to migrate approached zero.

Just before I ate, I even especially put on some light makeup and a chiffon blouse I had stolen
from Julie. I put on some white shorts, and then put on the high boots that I borrowed from Ah
Tao. Looking in the mirror, I actually seemed a little feminine. Before one carried out a death
sentence, he or she had to eat their fill and wear good clothes. Then, they would walk their last
steps with dignity. Since today was our last dinner together, I would brightly and neatly walk to
the end.

I still decided to eat at our usual place. I found a different place and chose a table far away
from our usual table . In the past, I always shouted that I wanted to sit next to the window,
selfishly hoping that everyone who saw me, would see Fang Yuke and I together. I would
proclaim this in a high pitched voice, waiting for the people who were completely ignorant to
take a good look. But Fang Yuke never liked sitting there. He would say it was too much like a
zoo. It seemed as if people could climb in from the window to deliver food at any time. At that
time, I liked to laugh at his unique thoughts. Thinking about it now, maybe he didnt want news
of our relationship to spread too far. So it would have ended like this sooner or later.

I was just too stupid and never understood its underlying meaning. Thinking about it, this meal
was just a meeting to let him know we we were breaking up officially and how we would go our
separate ways, I definitely could not cry or make an unreasonable scene. I had to leave myself
a little self respect and take it out on my next life for being trampled on by misfortune. Being
abandoned was very pitiful. Imploring the other person to offer comfort was even more
wretched. With one sentence, I could persuade myself and manipulate my thoughts. I began to
resolutely force it out of my mind. My ability to adapt and recover was really just as good as a
dogs. The moment Fang Yuke came in, he looked at the seat by the window. He looked at his
watch and back at the window but he didnt see me in the corner. I carefully sized him up. His
expression was a little dispirited, almost as if he had experienced many things the past few
days. His white shirt had many creases in it, not like his usual style. Maybe I looked at
him with too much energy, as Fang Yuke turned and managed to find me. He walked over, a
little surprised and sat in front of me, appearing a little depressed.

I didnt know what was wrong with my eyes. They suddenly felt a little moist. Seeing this clean
person with clear facial features, whose face had once been messed around by me, only then
did I realise that all the mental defenses I had constructed were completely useless. I had not
even spoken when my heart had already been thrust into despair. It turned out that breaking up
wasnt something that was easy to say. It wasnt something that could be packed up and
thrown away according to a plan. Thus, it was good that he was leaving the country. It was only
by avoiding his gaze that I could sit there unperturbed, pretending to stay strong. The two of us
didnt order a meal like we did in the past. It was probably because we understood that we did
not come together to eat in the first place.

It was Fang Yuke who spoke first, How come your phone was off two days ago?

I replied, I lost my phone card. I just replaced it.

Fang Yuke looked at me suspiciously, You didnt lose your phone so how did you lose your
phone card?

This was indeed something very hard to explain. Common sense said that a phone and a
phone card were as close to each other as a brother and a sister. If I were to explain this
clearly, I would have to tell him everything that happened between Wang Yimo and Julie. This
was already deviating from my main subject quite a bit. Thus, I decided to cover this with one
sentence.

I bit my lip, This..in any case it got lost.

Fang Yuke stared at me, almost like he wanted to stab me, Youre hiding something from me.

I thought to myself, Actually you were still the one who hid more from me. Today, didnt we get
together to find out who hid more from the other person?

Fang Yuke sighed, I know youve been annoyed with me recently. Forget it, in the future I
wont force you to read English. You can do whatever you want. You always never listen, so
when I force you, I might as well force myself. Today I have something to speak to you about.

I forcefully nodded my head. I didnt know if he saw that I had nodded my head. When he said
something to speak to you about I felt that my neck had gotten cervical spondylosis and
would not move. It was extremely stiff.

Fang Yukes subject suddenly shifted, Before I talk about this, I want to first ask you
something. Yesterday, what was the situation with you and that online friend? Also, why are
you wearing a skirt? Are you going to meet your online friend again? How come you cant fix
your bad habit of being a love-struck fool?

When he talked to me like that in the past, I would say, I pledge my life to maintain my right to
be a love-struck fool. I pledge my life to ensure the right to attract the gazes of all hot guys.

But now, when he said those things, it seemed to pierce me like a needle. Afterall, I didnt know
that I would be the one to initiate the break up and that he could still criticize me. I thought that
I had come here to accept his apology and then I would generously bless him and agree to
break up, and we would be done.

I tightly clenched my hands into fists and tried to breathe. I lifted my head to look at him, Isnt it
the trend in this world to change when we see something different? So, lets break up. Didnt I
send you a text? I said that we should break up.

Fang Yukes eyes suddenly became cold, enough to lower the temperatures in the fringes of
winter to the freezing point. I couldnt help but mumble, No matter what I do, its always my
fault. Fang Yuke pursed his lips, Repeat what you said. I didnt dare to say it again. Fang
Yukes current expression was like he was about to kill me.The instant I spoke about breaking
up, it felt as if I was going to commit suicide but I had actually wanted to get murdered as a
crime of passion. Unless he had to be the one to bring up breaking up? I really didnt know that
Fang Yuke was someone who could change so much.

I tried to pacify him, Why dont you be the one to bring it up? You can be the one to ask for a
break up, okay? Is there any need to take offence? Fang Yukes eyes went bloodshot.
Glistening things in his eyes sparkled. His expression had gotten three times more scary than it
previously was.

I was at a loss. What kind of play was this? I shone light over every single thing and all of its
causes and effects [2], but I still couldnt find out where I had gone wrong. I originally thought
today, I would have to take on the supporting female lead role and do some melodramatic
things, but how come I had become a female detective? Originally, this was a sad play, but
how did it become a movie of suspense? I wasnt familiar with the routine of a suspenseful
movie. The tears that were initially in my eyes also evaporated in a flash from the shock. I
blankly looked at him. Only now did I realize that even though Fang Yuke and I had been
lovers for three months, I only knew of him as a handsome man with a poisonous tongue, but I
didnt know the true extent of his temper.

Fang Yuke finally spit out his words, I only took it as you being crazy for a moment, but you
are actually serious? Is it because of that guy, Wang Yimo, that you met that one time?

I thought about it again and again. Werent we both aware of the root cause of the problem?
Wasnt breaking up something that you, Fang Yuke, wanted to accomplish? How did I end up
being the one with the extramarital affair?

I innocently said, Its not because of him. I know that some things have to be explained with
fate. From the beginning, you have used me as a substitute for someone else that you admire.
It was bound to happen sooner or later; many problems were bound to occur. Its better just to
get the pain over with rather than prolong the agony. According to books, love is like someone
pulling a rubber band. The person who gets hurt will always be the one who is unwilling to let
go. Just let go as to avoid you becoming more unwell later.

Fang Yukes expression became malevolent. It seemed as if this conversation was not going
the way he had planned. I thought that after I finished these words that put myself down,
scattering salt all over my wound, he would also feel guilty and apologetically lower his head.
This was really too strange. I planned to first return to my dorm and discuss a countermeasure
with my dorm mates. Obviously, I was the loser in this relationship. A loser who broke up to this
extent. I would never have anticipated this even if I died. It is said that three ignorant cobblers
add up to a genius [3]. I had to launch my collective wisdom and think of some new ideas.
Therefore, I pondered for awhile, then I firmly said, I am suddenly not hungry. Ill go back first.
Only the heavens knew I hadnt eaten anything for lunch or dinner. I was going to shrivel away
and become as thin as a picture.

Right when I wanted to flee, Fang Yuke suddenly grabbed my hand and fiercely hugged me
tight. I was a bit confused. Was this a break up hug? All the grievances in my heart slowly
began to well up, turning into a few trails of hot tears. However, the extras beside us couldnt
stand our deep emotional embrace any longer, and they asked, Classmate, is there anyone
sitting here? Just at that time, it was the peak hour for dinner. The two of us occupied a latrine
but didnt shit [4]. We took up a seat during the golden hour, standing here just hugging each
other. It was indeed not very thoughtful. I pushed Fang Yuke aside, a little embarrassed as I
faced them and said, Were leaving, leaving.

The passerby angrily harped, If you want to get intimate then go to Weiming Hu. Why did you
come to the canteen to hug. You guys are crazy.

Fang Yuke stood up from my embrace and tightly clinched the collar of this passerby, Who did
you say is crazy?

I never expected that Fang Yuke actually had these violent tendencies. In the past when Wen
Tao tried to provoke him, the two never fought. Now that he was going to England, so he didnt
love the citizens anymore, casually grabbing people to attack them. I immediately went over,
prying apart his fingers, one by one. The pretty and slender fingers were extremely forceful.
Even his fingernails had turned white. The passerby seemed like a civilized person, so he
wasnt used to a situation leading to blows. It was obvious that he hadnt foreseen what a huge
reaction his sentence would cause . He looked anxiously at me.

I pulled Fang Yuke out of the canteen and sighed, When did you learn to beat people up?

Fang Yuke looked at me with hidden bitterness, his eyes full of simmering violence, as well as
a hint of mysteriousness. His good looking eyebrows had twisted together, and his eyelashes
trembled as they looked at me. As if he had been wronged by me, as if I was the one who had
found somebody else and had kicked him aside. I was a bit emotionally affected, wanting to
touch his face. I lifted my hand halfway before realizing I had come to break up today. I could
only seize the opportunity to put it on his hand and say, Take care of yourself. I will bless you.

When I finished, I turned my head and left, afraid to turn back. I was afraid that the moment I
turned around, I would crazily run back and hug his thighs, never to let go. To tell you the truth,
this old woman has actually taken a fancy to you. Could you not fling that vixen aside and not
go leave the country?

Chapter 55- I Dont Want to Have Sex with You


I Dont Want to Have Sex with You
At night, all of the girls in my dorm had classes. I hid in the room by myself indulging in flights of fancy
[1]. I thought about the conversation we had when we broke up. I felt something was wrong. It was said
that Fang Yuke and I were together and originally this was a challenge to my IQ. At the time, when we
were together we would engage in a battle of words. I was inevitably wounded greatly by his cleverness
and my ignorance. Often in his song, tracks that went through it were hidden away. After his cryptic and
hazy words baffled me for an hour, I suddenly realized that I had already been beaten black and blue,
consigned to eternal damnation. And even now, this poison tongued talent used such a strange and
confusing break up strategy, like that of the demon Mara. Around 9 or 10 oclock, before people were
about to return to the dorm, my cell phone suddenly rang. The moment I heard it, I knew it was Fang
Yuke.
TLN: Mara is the demon of temptation
My heart suddenly jumped. I woodenly answered it. At the other end, there was no sound. I only heard
the lazy music that Norah Jones sang and intermittent sobs. I said Hello? so many times, but there was
no answer. When I called again, there was a busy signal and no one picked up. This plot was turning
stranger and stranger, going more into a suspenseful direction. The vision of a murder and kidnapping,
etc. scenes quickly went through my mind. My heart jumped and I was extremely flustered. I cleaned up
and put on a thick coat, and walked towards Fang Yukes off campus place.
When I got there, I was refused entry. The white entrance door seemed ice-cold under the cold light. I
took a deep breath and pressed on the doorbell. No one responded. After I had pressed it so many times,
a sense of calmness still remained. I disappointedly turned back when I heard murmuring. The door
creaked open. I happily turned around. In front of the door was that mysterious woman who looked at
me with an expression like water. Behind her was Fang Yuke speaking in noisy English. My heart hurt
so much that it seemed crushed. I awkwardly waved my hand, I was just stopping by. I will go back
now.
She curiously sized me up and pulled me into the house. I had never thought that for friends, who had
grown up in foreign countries, the notion of Two women attending upon a husband could be so deep.

I followed her in. When we entered, instead of attending to a husband, I saw a disorderly pile of wine
bottles on the table. By the wine bottles, a flushed-faced Fang Yuke lay on the table.
That mysterious woman became even more mysterious. She took me to Fang Yukes side and cleaned up
her own things so that she could go out.
I immediately called after her. I didnt want these circumstances to become more complicated. That girl
exposed a sweet smile, He needs you. Helloo this older sister? Untalented me can actually understand
that sentence.
I know how limited my English is, but in this crucial moment I used it, Who are you? Lover? Sister?
That older sister played a word game with me, Sister, but feeling like a lover. Please take care of him.
When he wakes up, you can ask him yourself.
The drunk Fang Yuke had a blurred expression on his face, his movements sluggish. He only knew how
to hold that bottle and never let go. His mouth would indistinctly say some Chinese words and then
speak English. My heart stopped. Even when he was drunk he would speak English. How treasonous
was this person?! Was it easy for your motherland to raise you? People say that kindness given to you
like dripping water should be paid back with gushing springs. If not, then when you cross a river you
must cast yourself in. Youre so great, you rascal. This is the best age/time of your life, but you escape to
the most evil capitalist country, free and unfettered. I took advantage of his muddled state and used all
my strength to pinch his cheek. Alas, in the past if I were to mock you like this you would definitely
harm me right?
Ill reckon that in the future there wont be anymore opportunities for you to knock me off my horse. As
I thought this, my heart sank into new levels of sadness again. The sadness ebbed from my heart. Thus, I
also drank a few sips of wine.
From a young age, I had never advised anyone not to drink anymore. When I was with Yao Zi, I drank
slowly while she drank quickly. Not too long after we get together, each time she would get dead drunk.
I would only ask after her or adopt an attitude to advise her a little. Thus her liquor tolerance advanced
by leaps and bounds through my reckless/careless attitude. If Fang Yuke had drank with me when he
was little, he definitely wouldnt be stumped by these few bottles of wine. I somewhat knew that my
own alcohol capacity wasnt great. Besides not using the toilet or having urinary incontinence, I had
done everything that could possibly lose someones face. I had snivelled and cried as I sang loudly and
touched people and kissed them. I could do anything. Fang Yukes upbringing had been strict so even
when he was drunk, he wouldnt get too wanton. Besides saying some nonsense, he gradually got much
quieter. However, this also changed into silence and he seemed to almost be asleep. Early winter had just
begun in Beijing and we had not gotten to the warmer times. I was afraid that if he slept in this ice cold
kitchen, he would get a cold/fever tomorrow.
I could only push his body. He fell over extremely easily, sinking his head onto my shoulder. I asked
him, Fang Yuke, are you drunk? My heart thought, I am really asking rubbish, just like seeing if
someone who is sleeping is really asleep. What shocked me was that Fang Yuke weakly replied, Not
drunk, because this sentence seemed a lot like something the annoying drunkards who stirred up trouble
would say. This was so much so that he even felt a little sober and rational. Thus I asked him again,
Fang Yuke, do you remember who seized your face just now? His eyes seemed to blink in slow
motion as his words came out like sticky rice, I know it was the idiot named Linlin.
In the past when he called me idiot, his eyes would be full of disdain, and suddenly become gentle. It
seemed that this idiot title was very intimate and pampering. However, he had indeed drank some
wine. So his next words were wide off the mark, I have regretted it.
Even though this sentence wasnt linked to the past context, I felt the sensitivity build up in my heart and
add to my scars. If a man called his current girlfriends name while he was in between drunkenness and
soberness, and then he sighed regretfully, I was only afraid that his mind had received a shock. Unless I
wasnt the only one who had been grounded into a sharp mental state [1] these past few days? I didnt
check to see if he could still understand my words. I only faintly said, I know you regret it, but the
customs in our little town have relaxed, so its not like we cant ever marry just because weve had a
relationship at one time. My old mother is usually a little bold. Even in the major things, she still
understands the importance of the situation. She definitely wont push against you with a vegetable
knife, and tell you to take responsibility. Its not like anything major happened between us anyways.

But, even if something did happen, like now, we shall pay particular attention to parting without any
hard feelings. You definitely dont have to drink to harm your body or do something that makes you
seem so infatuated and sad. Even though I, Zhou Linlin do not have the appearance of Diao Chan or
Xishi, these peach blossoms that bloomed more than halfway, making the most of it, there are only a few
people who can fall in love with me wholeheartedly. This does not count as a failure for me. You need
not blame yourself

My heart thought, Saying things like this is certainly very sensible. If Fang Yuke were to be sober now,
Im only afraid he would be so moved that a few tears would flow from his eyes, so grateful that I am
being so open-minded.
I lifted my head and saw that Fang Yukes eyes were indeed a bit moist. When he blinked, all of the
sudden the corners of his eyes finally spilled over with hot tears. Falling tears could really stir up
emotions within the depths of other people. Especially the silent tears, which could victoriously sound
even in silent places. It made all who saw it, emotionally moved. Thus, I also began to sob. By
comparison, my tears were very unsightly. My tears hadnt fallen all the way when my mucus began to
embark on a journey. Contrary to what one might expect, this situation really looked like a drunken
orgy.
He approached me, then he held me tight. His lips trembled as he sought mine. I thought, Im afraid that
this will be the last kiss between us. Thus, within my sniffling and tears and the lips that embraced me, I
accepted my last mission with great difficulty. I thought it would follow superficial contact etiquette, but
I didnt think that a kiss would emerge from such a difficult, dangerous situation. Fang Yuke seemed
like his heart was filled with grievances as he vented them on me. Perhaps he bit or sucked, but he really
would only be satisfied if he swallowed me whole. Sure enough, I hadnt guessed wrong. Fang Yuke
indeed had a violent tendency. My lips and tongue were both a little numb so much so that my mouth
had a bit of blood. I felt my own soul separating. One half was me soaking in this crazy intimacy, and
the other half pitifully and sorrowfully looked down upon these happenings. However, Fang Yuke had
drank a little too much so he almost stifled me as he kissed me. His hand had began to dishonestly grope
up and down. He was beginning to unbutton my buttons.
After I was spellbound for such a long time, I finally became cool-headed in a flash. Even though I had
tried to achieve my goal as soon as possible, the feelings in the atmosphere had to be concentrated with
honey. These feelings could not be forced, and both had to be willing. When conditions are right,
success will follow naturally. When the time came, even if Fang Yuke was just a little forceful, I could
unreservedly wish for this and just take it as some fun. But now, under these circumstances I was still
clear. Fang Yuke was probably afraid that I would forget who I was and only receive a hint of sensual
desire, so he wanted to invade and occupy my territory. To the end, this was also a distinguished and
accomplished scene of someone getting drunk. After sobering, he would just say Im Sorry and still
leave for England. Left alone, I had just said it. Even if something substantial occurred, we could still
part without hard feelings. But honestly, I was only able to have these types of feelings now. I didnt
feel, If I cant have your heart then I must get your body, etc. and I was unwilling to fulfill these kinds of
free and easy actions. Thus, in the midst of the earth-shattering, lightning-striking, fire-breathing kiss, I
seized the opportunity to get a breath of fresh air. I anxiously said, Fang Yuke, you are drunk.

Fang Yuke said, with unstable breathing, I am not drunk.
His tone at this time seemed to imply some insobriety so I could only ask, Then tell me, where is your
passbook and how much money is in it?
Fang Yuke coped with things smoothly, In the future, Ill give it all to you.
I thought, Even when youre drunk you can still say something thats so gratifying? Indeed, you are
talented.
I usually pondered quite badly, but at this moment, I wanted to think about it. How many things had
happened between us that were sincere and how many things were brutal. And here, there was 1% brutal
and 99% sincere actions that I didnt mind. Sincere actions can never be discounted, just as the
mysophobia I have with my feelings. Thus, I fiercely threw him off and did hand-to-hand combat with
him. But my body that was only 160 cm tall got pinned under an 180 cm tall person, making me seem
weak. No matter how I tried to throw him off, it only increased his interest. Fang Yuke suppressed both
of my hands up high, while his other hand took off my coat. His whole body was pinned against mine. I
had really become a tortoise who couldnt flip over no matter how it tried. I regretted. Why hadnt I
worn the shirt that would have to go over my head? At least I could resist a little. When the great winter
night was upon us, I only wore a blouse and a thick jacket with buttons. Fang Yukes lips had already
spread down to the pit in my shoulders. The fragrance of wine spread faintly from his neck. There was
also a burst of gnawing pain. In a flash, I found that I was helpless, powerless, and despairing. I watched
all of this about to happen so I was forced to say, Fang Yuke, weve already broken up, got it? What are
you doing all of this for?
The motions at my neck suddenly stopped. Fang Yukes head was deeply buried in my shoulder. After a
very long time, I only felt that his shoulders incessantly trembled. In the soft cotton clothing, I heard a
stifled word, Sorry.
This late apology reminded me of my continued feelings of being treated unjustly and all of my
grievances from the past few days. It gave life to my bawling.

Chapter 56- Sorrow is Greater than the Heart and Does Not Die
Chapter 56: Sorrow is Greater than the Heart and Does Not Die
After that day, I became very obedient. Every morning I would wake up exactly at 7:00 and would go to
buy some preserved dried cabbage buns and soy milk. After I finished eating, I would read an hour of
German. Next, I would go to class, following the regulations. At class, I would not open my phone, eat
snacks, or sleep. Even if it was the driest and dullest politics class, I would concentrate my full attention
on it as well. After class, I would go to the computer room to listen spoken English and do my English
listening comprehension questions. In the evening, I would also go to Weiming Lake to stroll around. I
felt that the days passed by happily. I no longer saw Fang Yuke nor heard his voice. I had disappeared in
Fang Yukes whole world and I felt that it was great.
Wang Yimo and Julie had been in contact with each other all the time these past few days. It was almost
as if they were about to become one. As half of the matchmaker, I received an enormous polite
reception. As long as there was a meal, they would definitely invite me over to be their unwanted third
party. After I went one or two times, I refused to go again. First, Wang Yimo rarely went to the canteen
to eat. Every time he would flashily go with Julie to a restaurant that is 10 miles away to wait for me.
While on the bus, it was easy for me to become absent-minded and miss the stop. I was used to
subconsciously searching for the pair of hands that pulled me. Under the scattered sunlight, I could
vaguely see a warm side profile. Secondly, their sympathizing expressions were too obvious. It seemed
as if every single little sentence was intended to try and clear the way for me. Especially Julie, as she
spoke to the end, her subject would always change to men are farts, and other vulgar conclusions. I
scarcely realized that she herself was dying under this fart and was and doing so extremely happily. The
IQ of women in love is 0. I used to be like that.

Over the weekends, Wang Jie and Ah Tao would always drag me to the supermarket to shop. We went
to the morning market to buy supplies, making me do the bargaining. I thought that their hearts were too
dark. Other people were industrious, as they operate small businesses and if we stopped buying so much
clothes, we could also have more money for supplies. Thus, I didnt bargain and just bought them. As I
lugged them back, I waited for them to rot. This made them even more flustered. They would bring me
to go on scenic tours. After seeing waterfalls from ten different ferries, we would go to pick a few fruit
from the farms and handed them to me as they whisperingly took a lot of pictures. The me in the picture
laughed extremely forcibly. The sunlight hit my face, making me seem unnecessarily pale. I thought that
they didnt need to be so concerned about me. My life was very substantial. It was a richness that I had
never felt in all my 20 years of life. I didnt have any time to consider that and the romantic history and
people that were irrelevant with me. I didnt care about whether those people were happy, whether they
were reluctant to leave each other, whether their fingernails were clean, whether their expressions were
penetrating, or whether their mouths were overcast. Really, I didnt care one bit.
But why was our dorms so close and I had still never encountered him? Why hadnt there been even one
brief encounter?
Later, after the evening when he went crazy, I heard that he was going to leave the country in a month.
Julie stood nervously in the wind as she told this to me, a little regretfully. I really hated Beijings
sandstorms. They pricked my eyes and it really hurt. I didnt dare rub them either. I was afraid that the
things that came out of my eyes would be too tart and too bitter. I could only look at the sunlight peeking
through the thick, round, ash-colored clouds in the sky. The sun in my heart was also in a similar
situation. On that night, I finally squatted in the toilet and viciously flung my phone sim card. Looking at
its final struggle in the water before falling into the toilet drain, I felt a perverse sense of happiness.
It just happened that on the second day, Wan YiMo needed to return back to New Zealand. He pulled all
of us dorm mates out to sing Karaoke. I agreed super excitedly. I told them all, this lady boss here
wanted to be the microphone boss. Theyd better call some handsome men for me because I want to
reveal my ultimate ability. They were all exceptionally pampering these past few weeks; they agreed to
anything no matter what I asked for. As expected, when I looked into the private room at the Karaoke
centre, there were quite a few strangers, all of them quite handsome. Its just that I suddenly lost my
interest in handsome men and treated them just another part of the karaoke room, I was really not
interested. I thought about Yao Zi, if she knew about how I was turning down this fortuitous encounter, I
was afraid that she would definitely disown me as her disciple, never to return. One of the handsome
guys proposed a game of dice. The punishment was a bit crude, the winner would pick a number and the
loser would have to kiss the person who corresponded to that number. I clapped my hands and called out
in agreement. If one wanted to play, they should play an exciting game. Anyway, I was single right now
and could afford to play it. Beijings music was the the Xinle Bands One Night In Beijing. It was a
high pitched song that was extremely noisy. I drank the beer and stepped on the sofa with the dice can
clasped in my hand, shaking it in the air. The dice rattled in the can.
With a peng, I slammed the dice can on the table, straining my voice to shout, No! This lady boss
wants to kiss every single person. You all need to clean your mouths for me! I think that all I needed
was to hold a cigarette in between my fingers and I would be the perfect gangsters apprentice.
Furthermore, my luck was exceptionally good that day, winning nine games out of ten. The one time I
lost, the one I kissed was just Julie. My heart was unsatisfied, I hooted, Julie, kissing you is just like
licking myself. No way no way, I can be considered as the savior of you and Xiao Mo, you should
sacrifice your familys Xiao Mo for a while. After saying this, I extended my left hand like a
gentleman, inviting Wang YiMo to step forward. My dorm mates knew that I wanted to be crazy this
night and they all let me do what I want. I suspected that my attitude previously where I had studied well
was scarier than anything else. They would rather see me go crazy than be that obedient child who was
no better than a walking corpse. As a result, I had them as my supporters and was extremely gutsy. Wan
YiMo shook his head resignedly and shrugged towards Julie.

Julie picked up a pair of maracas, Xiao Mo, you shouldnt shrug your shoulders. Its such a foreigners
thing to do and feels so different from our culture. Living outside for ten years, your living habits have
all changed. You should change it back for me. Go, go. Let my familys young lady give you a kiss. Just
pretend youre buying a piece of meat. I happily bounced over, but my tears started to flow
uncontrollably. Because I was thinking that if Fang YuKe stayed overseas for ten years, would his living
habits also change? Like, he wouldnt like eating the things I liked to eat anymore, he wouldnt like
drinking the drinks that I did, wouldnt remember how a brat like me would curse him for being an
idiot? Everyone was waiting for my kiss, but I suddenly could not stop thinking anymore. The fact was
that the man of my dreams could only be him was plain as day.
Thats right, I was thinking of him. No matter whether I was studying or eating a steamed bun, whether I
was studying German or looking at the blackboard, whether I was at some random lakeside, his
silhouette would find a crack to squeeze its way back into my brain. Extremely dense, extremely full of
him. Id thrown away his number, but I could still remember what it was. Wed broken up, but I could
still remember the warmth of his hug. He was leaving the country, but I could still remember his smell.
Theres nothing sadder than a withered heart, but it was not dead yet. As it turns out, I still had no way to
get rid of these feelings. I love him. I really love him. But he had thrown me away to go to England. I
was still studying English in hopes that one day I would be able to live within his space, secretly taking
peeks at him. These petty ways of thought were so deep, so much so that I didnt even feel like giving
away a kiss, even for fun. I wanted to, with him I faced Wang Yi Mos face with a bit of
embarrassment, hesitatingly moving my head closer, slowly closing my eyes, with tiny voices in my
heart going, dont do it, dont do it. It was at this moment that I felt a pair of strong hands hold onto
my shoulders. I turned around and saw a pair of jet-black eyes filled with anger. The owner of those pair
of eyes rudely and unreasonably pulled my hand and led me out of the karaoke room.
The music in the karaoke room didnt stop. Ive waited for 2,000 years, but my lover never
returned Sounds of the mushy popular hit song echoed down the corridor. One could faintly hear
the sounds of someone vomiting in the toilet.
Fang YuKe was standing in front of me. His black checkered shirt looked extremely attractive when
paired with his fair face. It was just that his fair face was currently wracked with exhaustion and pain.
We were both silent. The love song from the booth was still playing, the man who was vomiting
sounded like he even wanted to puke out his intestines. Amidst the sounds of the love song and the
vomit, my heart kept beating and was unable to calm itself down. As such, I courageously turned my
body only to be pulled back. Behind me, I heard Fang YuKe sigh softly. Hearing this, my eyes burned
again. In the past, when he used various profound or straightforward words to hurt me, I was so angry to
the point where I wanted to commit suicide by biting off my own tongue. However, he wasnt mocking
me right now. Hed only sighed but Id felt discomfort to the point of choking. He sighed, Im sorry.
His tears pitter-pattered to the floor, the light that reflected off was multicoloured, dazzling the eyes.
He continued to say behind me, Im sorry about the things that occurred that day. I drank too much.
He held my hand behind my body but his grasp held none of the warmth from the past and was even
slightly cold. He continued, Im going to leave this country. In the future, you must take care of
yourself. Remember no matter how lazy you are, you have to boil water for yourself, dont casually
drink unboiled water. You should drink less beer, dont play so crazily, dont always run from your
problems, if you have any problems you should voice them out, if you feel upset, come look for me.
too naggy, too naggy. Fang YuKe, didnt you know that I really want to avoid you I turned my body
angrily, I feel grieved. I feel very grieved right now. But is there a point of telling you? In the future
when I feel grieved, where do I go to look for you? Tell me how Im supposed to convey it long-
distance? How much does it cost to call long distance? When the morning comes and I want to cry, do I
have to count what time it is over there, whether its morning or night, whether youre sleeping or not,
whether Im waking you up? I still have to think about whether its okay for me to be bother you,
whether or not you will hate me. I, Zhou Linlin, always speak with imposition. What I can pick up, I can
bear to put down. Why do I have to turn myself into such a pitiful person? Its obvious that you are the
one who has thrown me away, but I forced myself to be the one to break up with you. In the end, I still
have to pitifully call you to tell you that Im grieved beyond what I can bear, Im suffering until I cant

hold on any longer. Am I supposed to live like this? If I live like this, wouldnt I turn back into the me
from the past?

Fang YuKe looked at me in shock and his mouth formed an O-shape, Why are you saying this? Youre
suffering? Why are you suffering? What has that Wang YiMo done to you? I really wanted to bang my
head on the wall and faint. It was like I was punching cotton. I was clearly talking about the situation
between us, why did he flip it around to somebody else? I twisted my mouth, Wang YiMo has done
nothing to me. It was only me who was going to do something to him. Hes going overseas tomorrow.
A look of desolation flashed across Fang YuKes eyes, Youre so upset about him going back to his
country? Then what about me leaving the country? I glared at him, feeling like this conversation was
outrageous and mystifying. That random brother was still vomiting in the distance, I really felt like
going over to give him a kick and tell him that he would soon get used to his vomiting, but this lady boss
was unable to get used to tolerating his vomiting. Especially since my mood was extremely bad right
now. I could only pull on Fang YuKes hand, walk into the karaoke room, take the microphone to tell
my dorm mates and those handsome guys, My brain is currently confused and I dont understand a lot
of things that have been said. So I want to borrow your ears and intellect. After saying this, I turned off
the music.

There was one handsome guy who was protesting with dissatisfaction. I felt that this guy was as stupid
as the weather forecaster on CCTV. The weather had changed but he was still unable to notice it. Right
now, everyone present was extremely silent, especially the rock and roll music that was terminated. I
faced Fang YuKe and said, Fang YuKe, this Wang YiMo is Julies boyfriend. It was tough but I
decided not to have any relation with him so please, do not in the midst of our breakup, slap the sin of
being so fickle in love on me. Im afraid that you will say its because our feelings have died, or
regretted or something along those lines that would slap me with an unfair label. Fang YuKe remained
unmoving over there, as if he had yet to adapt to this quiet atmosphere. Within the group of watchers,
some of them had mouths that looked like they could fit a chicken egg. I really let these people off easy,
how could I let them watch this drama for free, I should turn around and collect some money from them.
Half a day had passed before he slowly released a breath, Then why did you want to break up with
me? Damn, really f*cking depressing. Wed been talking in circles. I took a break and drank a cup of
cool water. Fang YuKe impatiently watched me drink that cup of cool water but he didnt dare to say a
word.
I realised that I was actually capable of possessing a queenly aura. I looked at Fang YuKe,
Fang YuKe, touch your heart and tell me. Was the decision of you leaving the country
something that was decided within these few weeks? Your family wants to migrate but youve
never even told me about this. You speak such fluent English while flirting and exchanging
glances with other people, do you think im blind? Do you think my heart is made of stone? I
still have to wait for you to bring it up? I appreciate you coming to find me today but our
conversations always go around in circles and we never find a conclusion anyway. It may not
be tiring for you but my brain cells are about to die. You should know that my brain cells are
already very few in number, theyre an endangered species. You shouldnt randomly trample
and waste them. If you, for the sake of every person here, say things in such a way that I can
understand, I will be able to give up completely. This will save me from thinking about whether
or not I even have a 1% chance of possibility of reconciliation. This love we have between us
makes me feel too insecure. When Im leaning back, Im afraid of falling backwards. When Im
leaning to the side, Im afraid of falling off the
