Seeking Good Temptation – Chapter 17

Translated by Novice Translations

School Grass’ Special Pet – 17

After Bai Xun and Su Shi returned, the atmosphere between them was somewhat different. Su Shi paid more attention to Bai Xun and she no longer blindly avoids it.

Gao Yuan’s face was ugly, but Huang Yanran stayed besides him the entire time.

Until evening, everyone took their tents and prepared camp.

The boys set up the tents, and the girls spontaneously organized groups to pick wild fruits and gather firewood.

Bai Xun was originally unpopular because of Su Shi and Gao Yuan. Thus, she went with Xiaoya and Huang Yanran to collect firewood.

Su Shi looked at Bai Xun and said. “Xiao Xun, the sky will be dark soon. Don’t go too far. Come back as soon as possible.”

“Don’t worry, it will be all right since the three of us are going together.”

Gao Yuan has been paying attention to her and wanted to say something, but Bai Xun has been avoiding him like the plague since the afternoon. She hasn’t even given him a glance, and he can’t help but sulk.

Bai Xun said this, but Huang Yanran clearly mentioned that many girls invited her but she declined them all. She said that she wanted to go together with Bai Xun. Bai Xun doesn’t believe that she wasn’t calculating in her heart.

Bai Xun is eager for Sister Huang’s tricks, giving her an excuse to play along, so that the affections will rise quickly!

It’s just……

Whether to embark on this optional capture target’s route. Bai Xun thought with a dark face.

She suspects that this game master’s intelligence is mentally handicapped – when two people are alone, it will start this capture target’s route? This is a normal BG game, okay?1BG – Boy girl; she’s implying this game should be heterosexual pairings; no girl on girl but the game master is mentally retarded and left that as an open option.

“Xiao Xun, I really didn’t think that you were the one that A Yuan cares about so much.” The soft female voice whispered.

Here we go!

Xiaoya has gone to a distant area to pick firewood, Bai Xun’s spirits rose and she looked at Huang Yanran who was close to her. Her expression was bewildered and anxious, “Yanran, you misunderstood, I and A Yuan…Gao Yuan is just good friends.”

Huang Yanran’s beautiful eyebrows wrinkled slightly, like she was sad. “Really? But I heard from the students at school that you always go to and from school together, eat together, and go to class together…”

Bai Xun seems to have also remembered the other party’s bicycle rides. For a moment, her eyes were in a trance but soon recovered, and reluctantly smiled. “That’s their misunderstanding, I happen to be neighbors with Gao Yuan, so sometimes we go together.”  

“Well, that’s really embarrassing. I always listen to them, so I was worried…” Huang Yanran looked at her apologetically. “Xiao Xun, you’re the first girl I’ve met at school, and I like you very much, so I asked you about these things…”

The beautiful and gentle girl speaks of her worries because she was a friend and wasn’t going to steal her fiancé.

Sister Huang, has a brilliant killing method with her skillful words! Unlike how the general campus women battles!

This kind of soft-spoken attack is more effective than a real knife at least for the good and innocent Bai Xun.

Bai Xun made up her mind and her expression relaxed. She smiled at Huang Yanran, reaching out to hold the other person. “Yanran, I like you very much. Thank you for helping me when I was bullied, I found that there were still people who were good to me. Don’t worry you are Gao Yuan’s fiancée.”

[The two sides express “like” towards each other and the route branch automatically opens.]

Bai Xun looked at the sudden appearance of the game’s subtitles, and the original gray “capture target” above Huang Yanran’s head turned red. Additionally, there was a red and black heart, all she wanted to do was Gan Lin Niang.”2Gan Lin Niang – Internet buzzword created from a viral video/comic; its basically an inside joke that most people in China knows if they have access to the media. It means to curse/fuck your mother/etc. Basically, a new way of cursing.

She just wanted to express her gratitude. How can this “like” to a normal person be misunderstood as favorites between good sisters?  

[You humans are really complicated, there’s no such thing as pure sister love it’s called socialist sisterhood.]3Socialist sisterhood – girl x girl love; its similar to American slang for bromance but unlike that slang joke, this has a more real possibility of girl love…

Bai Xun looked at Huang Yanran’s red heart with the negative number above her head and only wanted to say TM4TM – Chinese internet slang to curse; equivalent to motherfucking. socialist sisterhood.

But in any case, the route is now open.

“Xiao Xun? What’s wrong with you?” Huang Yanran noticed that Bai Xun was in a trance and she looked concerned.  

Bai Xun shook her head and strongly smile. “Nothing, it’s just that the sky seems dark. Let’s go back soon.”

Fortunately, she’s in the right situation right now and Huang Yanran won’t suspect anything. She took the initiative to hold her hand and walked towards the camp.

This road is exactly the one that Bai Xun and Su Shi walked during the day. She remembered that there was a deep pit.

Looking through her memories, Bai Xun paid attention to Huang Yanran.

“Be careful!”

At the edge of the pit, when she stepped on air, her back was immediately pushed and the other fell in by herself.

“Hey…” Huang Yanran was pushed to the ground and when she returned from her shock, she noticed the deep pit. She rushed to the pit’s edge and said, “Xiao Xun! How are you?”

No matter how deep her heart is,5Author trying to word it saying she’s typically scheming/black bellied character/two-faced. she was just a girl in her early twenties. At this moment, her panic and guilt weren’t fake and there was a tremble in her voice.  

After a while, she didn’t hear Bai Xun’s voice. Huang Yanran panicked and closed her eyes to adjust her sight to the darkness and saw the pit roughly. The pit was not too big, but it was almost two meters deep. It was no use climbing the soil wall, as the rain caused the soil to become wet and soft.

Bai Xun was lying at the bottom of the pit and there was no movement. Her voice trembled. “Xiao Xun, you hold on, I will call someone to rescue you.”

Huang Yanran got up and ran towards the camp in a panic.

When she ran, she felt pain in her foot. She stumbled and sprained her foot, but she didn’t care about it at all. 

Huang Yanran endured the pain and rushed to the camp as quickly as possible.

“What’s wrong with you?” Su Shi found that Huang Yanran was disorderly and was out of breath. Suddenly he thought of something, “How come you’re alone? What about Xiao Xun?”

“Hurry up! Go and save her!” Huang Yanran grabbed Su Shi’s sleeve and pointed to the road she came from, her eyes were red. “She fell into the pit over there.”

Su Shi didn’t tend to her and grabbed the rope tied to the tent on the ground and ran.

At the same time, Gao Yuan was shocked by her words. He was trying to follow, but Huang Yanran took him by the hand.

Now that she was more relaxed, she found that her ankle pain was unbearable, her eyes reddened: “A Yuan, my ankle…”

Gao Yuan looked at Su Shi’s figure that disappeared in the distance and looked back at Huang Yanran.

He looked anxious and was really worried about Bai Xun. Finally, he took a man aside and said, “You, help her with her feet.”

When he finished speaking hurriedly, he ran to Bai Xun.

Huang Yanran froze, her previous panic had calmed down and her eyes slowly cooled.

……

On the other hand, when Huang Yanran left. Bai Xun turned over at the bottom of the pit and rubbed her painful ass.

She fell and paid attention to protecting her head. Fortunately, the bottom of the pit was soft and muddy and there was no serious harm to her body.

Now she waits for someone to save her.

Just looking at Huang Yanran’s affection, it was clearly at 20%, how come it’s now at 0?  

Bai Xun: Women nowadays, their minds are hard to guess.


  1. BG – Boy girl; she’s implying this game should be heterosexual pairings; no girl on girl but the game master is mentally retarded and left that as an open option.
  2. Gan Lin Niang – Internet buzzword created from a viral video/comic; its basically an inside joke that most people in China knows if they have access to the media. It means to curse/fuck your mother/etc. Basically, a new way of cursing.
  3. Socialist sisterhood – girl x girl love; its similar to American slang for bromance but unlike that slang joke, this has a more real possibility of girl love…
  4. TM – Chinese internet slang to curse; equivalent to motherfucking.
  5. Author trying to word it saying she’s typically scheming/black bellied character/two-faced.

This sure is a Shura field – right when she increased Huang Yanran’s affections, Gao Yuan dumped cold water on it. Hopefully she’s not near death in the future playing with 3 yanderes’ affections simultaneously.
