Chapter 4

 Jiang Shuang suddenly opened her eyes and her forehead was full of cold sweat. She sat up, wiped her face, took a deep breath, and fell back.

  That nightmare she didn’t have in a long time will start again.

  Tonight, she slept in a daze and woke up from fright a few times in the night. All around her, there were vicious curses and abuse from those people that rang in her ears.

  When she woke up the next day, she felt her whole person fell apart from tiredness. She stood up against the wall, changed her clothes slowly and went out to wash her face and brush her teeth.  

  Ling Xiao Xiao woke up early and finished breakfast. As a full-time writer, she still attaches great importance to her health. When she wakes up in the morning, she first exercises, then slowly eats breakfast.  

  Thinking of the little girl next door and recalling her appearance yesterday. After she finished eating, she conveniently bought her a gift.

  Since the girl moved in, it looked like she ate milk and bread every day. She looked malnourished. Ling Xiao Xiao felt she was a saint when she came back with something in her arms. When she opened the door, a loud noise came from the bathroom.

  She didn’t care about taking off her shoes. She directly ran to the bathroom and saw Jiang Shuang on the ground.

  Jiang Shuang crawled up with embarrassment, pointed to a pool of water stains on the ground, and awkwardly said: “That, I accidentally fell …”

  Ling Xiao Xiao asked with concern: “Are you all right?”

  Jiang Shuang shook her head in terror “No …it’s nothing …”

  She looked at her nervous appearance, Ling Xiao Xiao felt it was funny and wanted to tease her. But when she saw her red wrist, she gave up the idea and raised her hand with the gift, “Come eat breakfast.”

  ”For me?”

  Jiang Shuang’s face had a strange expression of shock, which made people feel distress, as if no one has ever treated her well.

  This was indeed the case.

  She was cute and had a curious pseudo-cold character. Many people wanted to be friends with her, but she always shrank and became the quiet and beautiful girl … Oh no, the key point is wrong!

  After all, it seemed that she had snake essence disease and didn’t take medicine, ah.1She’s always mistaken as the beautiful and quiet girl, but no the key point is wrong, she really looked she’s diseased and frightened and never took medicine to cure it. AKA she’s still traumatized from her past and hasn’t gotten over it

  At this moment, the two-dimensional happy maiden deliberately adopted a serious expression on her face, there were still water droplets on her face. Ling Xiao Xiao nodded and was about to go out to take off her shoes, but saw the girl’s eyes were red.

  Ai ya ya, she couldn’t bear to see the little girl cry, ah!

  Ling Xiao Xiao reached out and patted Jiang Shuang’s face, “Don’t make such a moved expression, I’m embarrassed.”

  After that, she went straight out to take off her shoes, then setup breakfast.

  Breakfast was a bowl of delicious seafood porridge and two beef xiao long bao.2Usually called Chinese soup dumplings in English, it’s a dumpling filled with soup, very delicious After Jiang Shuang finished eating with a bowed head, she lowered her head and said to the woman on the sofa: “Thank you.”

  Ling Xiao Xiao raised an eyebrow slightly, “No need to thank me. They are all from Jinhu! It’s all family.”

  After hearing this, Jiang Shuang looked up at her sharply. “Are you from Jinhu too?”

  “En.” Ling Xiao Xiao raised her voice very highly and coldly. “You have definitely seen me on the gold list.”

  She was a full-time writer, Jiang Shuang was clear about this. It also shows that this woman wasn’t a small transparent vacuum nor white powder in any way.3Basically saying she’s not a small fry, but a big fish.

  But it was impolite to ask people. She didn’t know what to say. After hesitating for a long time, she responded, “En, you’re very good.”

  Ling Xiao Xiao was blown away into a funny smile. This was the first time she ever talked to such a person. It seems the conversation wasn’t in 1D. However, she was strangely fond of this little girl when she talks.

  Heihei, what the hell, take liberties with a younger sister, really meng meng da!4cute way of saying moe in JP terms, basically means super cute/too cute

  The two had a tacit agreement to clean up the table after the meal and the process was naturally silent. Ling Xiao Xiao stood at the door and watched Jiang Shuang scrub the bowl skillfully and suddenly said: “How about having the meal together in the future, it will be boring to eat alone.”

  Jiang Shuang’s expression was hard-pressed. “I … don’t have much money.”

  Ling Xiao Xiao was shocked to hear this. She always thought this girl was too lazy to cook. She didn’t expect the reason why she didn’t eat properly was because she had no money.

  Her saintly heart burst out, Ling Xiao Xiao asked, “Then, can you cook?”

  She thought about when she was forced to cook before and finally went to help people cook to make money… Jiang Shuang suddenly shook her head, “I can’t.”

  ”Tsk Tsk, that’s a pity. I want to taste your cooking.” Ling Xiao Xiao pouted, “But it doesn’t matter. If you like, I’ll do it. How about you do the dishes?”

  She really looked forward to a roommate who she could live in harmony with!

  Ling Xiao Xiao, who has been lonely for a long time, thought more and more about this proposal, “Ai hey, if you don’t have enough money, I’ll buy vegetables and cook. You can pay for water and electricity…well, plus washing dishes. How about it?”

  Unexpectedly when Jiang Shuang heard this, she was putting the bowl back into the cupboard and suddenly paused, her face was dyed flush.

  However, Ling Xiao Xiao promised she absolutely wouldn’t be shy.5She will definitely do her end of the deal.

  Sure enough, the next second, Jiang Shuang blushed and ran back to her room without a word.6She took her words the wrong way of, implying she will do her end of the deal. She probably misunderstood LXX as then you shouldn’t be embarrassed and should be able do your part for this agreement, plus implying she’s a poor student.

  Ling Xiao Xiao looked at her inexplicably, was her wording incorrect? It seems the little girl misunderstood her. It seems that she misunderstood and thought she wanted to give her alms.

  Ahhh, she really didn’t mean that! She just didn’t want to eat alone, ah! It’s her wish to have a friend to live with, ah!

  As for the topic just now, she thought Jiang Shuang would ask for her pen name, but contrary to her expectation, she didn’t. Not only did she not ask, but she didn’t care!

  Ling Xiao Xiao didn’t feel very happy today.

  She went back to her room a little dejected. The post had been sent to the deposit box. After some clicks, there were more than 30 comments. She flipped around and closed the page.7I guess deposit box on JJWXC is the same as “uploading” content. I guess it makes sense since they are “depositing” their work into this virtual box so it uploads their content to the online platform

  After all, it has been launched for less than half an hour. It was normal that a local tyrant reader didn’t read it.8The local tyrant reader she’s referring to is JS…she wanted to see her usual mine comment on her post…so now LXX is sad about that.

  Ling Xiao Xiao who initially felt unhappy, was now hit by a double blow…

  She ran to the group to complain, then Shang scarf replied back, “Hahahahahahahahahahaha I like it” then went out to work.

  Weibuyun was now considering whether to find a job to pass time.

  Otherwise … she could ask a group of readers to try to find the local younger sister tyrant?  

  No, no, no, it won’t do. Just in case other people likes her high and cold attitude, if she shows her true face, it will drive away the younger sister, ah.9So, it looks like she has a crush on JS who always donates to her and wants to find her…but she’s afraid that the real her will drive her away

  She was conflicted, and Jiang Shuang wasn’t in a good mood. She sat there and calmed down after a while, then talked with para for a while. She felt that she was being sensitive. There should be no other meaning from her neighbor. She estimated that she was trying to kindly help her, but instead she lost face from her reaction which may have caused others to be angry.

  She didn’t know what to do.

  para: Don’t think so much about it. It’s not a day or two. In case she doesn’t like to pay money two days from now, you’ll be even more embarrassed then. But if people are really sincere, you should follow her. [Yi, what’s wrong?10That’s not a typo…actually has a [ there…probably to make it more realistic as a chat box since people do typos…yi just means surprise… pay money meaning pay for the vegetables

  Don’t explain the third time: QAQ I probably felt insulted at the time, but now I think of it, it seems it was just kindness ah

  para: It’s okay. I understand you, touch your head.11It’s slang, touch your head, means like para is teasing her, also means pat that you see people write in messages to each other… She’s also a writer of Jinhu. You can chat with her and ask her pen name…wait a minute, I remember Weibuyun said there will be an update this morning, ah.

  Jiang Shuang then remembered the update. She didn’t have time to reply to para. She went directly to the update.

  She looked at those slippery comments and her cheeks streamed with tears. Even if she rushed over, she didn’t arrive in time to be the first reply, it was already dumped with dozens of messages, ah!12She’s said she’s not the first comment of Weibuyun’s update…they should just get together already!! 🙁

  So sad!

  After finishing the update, Jiang Shuang habitually threw mines. She struggled for a long time, then added a smiling face after the mine in the message

  She hopes the goddess won’t be affected by the negative scores, but she didn’t know what to say. If the goddess could understand the meaning of the smiling face, it would be better.

  The goddess’s last book was stuck. Jiang Shuang went to glance at the book and found the extras still didn’t come out. The collection in Weibuyun’s column has increased a lot.13So on online platform, collection refers to the collection of novels that author wrote, the column also refers to that author’s page…

  The goddess is about to turn pink!14Pretty sure this refers to good comments and points are getting higher than all the negative reviews and comments she’s been getting

  Jiang Shuang was in a good mood. She began to chat with para. The network group over there called people to go to YY.15So the network group called her to request she needs to go to YY. Please note this is before noon since she just had breakfast with her neighbor and read the update real quick.

  Oh right, she was forgetful this morning. She was voice acting today, ah.

    Firstly, I really like your translations~
    Anyways, red (红) means famous (I think; I’m Cantonese and can’t really read/write), so the pink might have something to do with that?
