Chapter 7 – Still on

It was because they hadn’t been in contact for a long time, so he was so surprised to see Ruan Nianxi appear before he died in his previous life.

At that time, he really thought that Ruan Nianxi had forgotten about him a long time ago.

It turns out that she had just been silently paying attention to him.

After being reborn, although he knew that Ruan Nianxi was in the same school as him, he never thought of appearing in front of her directly.

He felt that he still needed a chance.

He had intended to adapt to campus life after being reborn before finding her, but he unexpectedly met her early.

By the way, if he hadn’t gone out just now, Ruan Nianxi might have really hit someone again. Does that mean that she’s doing it earlier in this life?

Is it because he changed something after being reborn?

In his previous life at this time, he seemed to be teaming up with Su Qianyi to measure the landscape sketches for their assignment. Nothing happened at that time, and he didn’t see Ruan Nianxi appear.

But what did he change?

He just didn’t like Su Qianyi anymore, that’s all.

Xie Shu’s thoughts only lasted for a moment, but in reality, it was only a second or two.

He still looked at Ruan Nianxi, and he had countless things to say to her, but when it came to his mouth, it only turned into one sentence: “Ruan Nianxi, in the future, don’t be so impulsive.”

If he hadn’t appeared just now, if she had really hit someone, the outcome might have been the same as before.

She probably would have been reported to her parents again.

He didn’t want such things to happen again.

Originally, Xie Shu thought that he would blame Ruan Nianxi again because of Su Qianyi, but Ruan Nianxi was stunned when she heard his words, somewhat incredulous.

He… didn’t blame her?

In high school, he didn’t even ask her why she hit someone and directly criticized her for Su Qianyi. She was really sad at that time.

She knew he really liked Su Qianyi, and she was especially afraid that he would criticize her in front of Su Qianyi again, so she just wanted to leave there, but it was different from what she imagined. He took her to a place with fewer people.

She thought he wanted to save face for her in front of fewer people, but she didn’t expect… he didn’t help Su Qianyi to criticize her.

The first time she hit Su Qianyi in high school, he was really harsh on her, and she thought he would never like her again.


Ruan Nianxi carefully observed Xie Shu for a while, and when she saw that he didn’t look angry, she finally relaxed completely.

So, he doesn’t really dislike her, does he?

Is she allowed to appear in front of him?

Ruan Nianxi was very nervous, thinking about what to say.

After waiting for Ruan Nianxi’s response for a long time and not knowing what she was thinking, Xie Shu finally “shocked” her with a process-like tone: “By the way, why are you also at this school?”

“I… have always been here.”

She specifically chose the same school as him at the time.

Unfortunately, she couldn’t major in their field, otherwise, she would be in the same college as him now.

“Then why didn’t I see you before? Even if the school is big and the majors are different, the cafeteria is in the same place, right? How come we didn’t meet once in three years?”

Ruan Nianxi pursed her lips and didn’t answer.

After entering college, although she didn’t deliberately look for Xie Shu, she saw him several times in the school cafeteria.

However, nine out of ten times, he was with Su Qianyi.

Every time, he only had eyes for Su Qianyi, so how could he see her?

Perhaps Xie Shu also understood this principle.

The two fell silent for a while, and he took the initiative to speak again: “It’s been a long time since we’ve been in contact. Am I still on your friends list?”

“Yeah, you are.”

“Okay, I’ll contact you later. I’m still in class now. I’m afraid the teacher will check our group in a while, so I have to go back quickly.”

Xie Shu was telling the truth. Their teacher wouldn’t just leave them alone. He would start checking randomly after a while, and his progress was still at the beginning, so it would be obvious that he was “slacking off.” He had to go back quickly to make up a few strokes.

“Then I’ll go back first. Remember not to do what you did just now again. If things get out of hand, it’s not a joke.”


So, Xie Shu left like this.

He went to another group to borrow an eraser first, and then returned to their group.

Ruan Nianxi was still standing in place, staring blankly as Xie Shu ran from one side of the lawn to the other, and finally disappeared from her sight.

He just said… he would contact her later?


After Xie Shu went back, he found that all three of his sons were waiting for the eraser he borrowed.

They were not geniuses, and it was impossible for them to draw every line correctly. An eraser was essential for them.

As the one who went to borrow the eraser, Xie Shu naturally had priority.

After erasing the extra lines, Xie Shu started drawing on the paper with a ruler. Their teacher soon came to check their work.

After looking at their drawing and giving them some pointers, the teacher went to find the next group.Xie Shu finished sketching the overall framework of the corridor and set down his pen. He then switched his phone screen and quickly located Ruan Nianxi’s name in his friends list.

He tapped into Ruan Nianxi’s chat window, hesitated for a long time, and finally sent a few words: “Where are you now?”

The reply came instantly: “Dorm.”

Xie Shu breathed a sigh of relief; it was good that he didn’t have to look for Su Qianyi.

He began to type on the keyboard again, but after typing and deleting several sentences, he was at a loss.

He didn’t know where to start the conversation.

Should he ask about her high school days?

Or why she hit Su Qianyi?

Or talk about something else?

“Xie Shu, what are you doing instead of your homework?”

Zhao Lin lifted his head from his sketchpad and saw Xie Shu holding his phone, constantly tapping and then frowning in thought.

Leaning over a bit closer to Xie Shu, Zhao Lin tried to see what he was up to.

But Xie Shu subconsciously flipped his phone screen away, not letting him see.

“Mind your own drawings, why are you looking at my phone?”

“You’re not chatting with Su Qianyi again, are you?”

Although Zhao Lin didn’t get a clear view of what Xie Shu was doing, he caught a glimpse of what seemed to be the WeChat chat interface when Xie Shu flipped his screen, which led him to make such a guess.

Zhao Lin’s comment caused Li Da and Liu Ping to also lose focus on their painting.

They put down their pens and started looking at him with disdain.

Xie Shu: “???”

“What do you mean? I said I wouldn’t look for her again, and I meant it! Even a good horse doesn’t go back to the same grass!”

“Then who are you chatting with?”

“With someone else, it doesn’t have to be Su Qianyi!”

“Don’t believe it, show us.”

It was mainly Xie Shu’s evasive action that aroused suspicion.

“Isn’t it clear? You still don’t believe me?”

“We don’t, who was the one who got all down after being rejected by Su Qianyi, but then instantly cheered up when she sent him a message?”

Xie Shu choked on his words, then retorted, “I said it’s not her, it’s another girl. If you don’t believe me, I’ll invite her out at noon for you all to see!”
