Chapter 2: Crossing (2)
“Don’t you know how to resist?” A young girl looked down on him in annoyance. “The best way to deal with school violence is to fight back!”
She raised up a small fist while her tender face showed a fierce scowl. It was like a girl trying on her mother’s clothing–the expression she wore was incompatible with her childish image.
Lin Xinyu stood up and bowed his head shyly. “Thank you.”
As she looked at the boy who was a half a head shorter than her bow his head, Lin Xin had the urge to smack him.
She wanted to file a complaint–instead of going to heaven, she transmigrated into a book written by that annoying author. And Lin Xinyu was the supporting male lead who perished by the author’s pen.
The girl’s current body’s name was also called “Lin Xin.” Based on her appearance and name, she merely had the role of a standard “passerby A.” Her character was never even mentioned in the novel.
In the original book, the loyal dog who could overshadow the sky hehe…he was currently a weak little chick suffering a congenital heart disease. Who could tell her? How could this weak little pretty boy grow up to be a tall and handsome man? How can a man suffering from heart disease possibly beat up four to five large men single-handedly? How can a youth from the orphanage with no background possibly become an untouchable CEO?
This is incredible…
But no matter how powerful he will become in the future, he was now merely a weak child, or child who chose to be submissive. Lin Xin didn’t look down on those who were physically weak, as long as they stood up for themselves. Even if the boy had heart disease, he should at least put up a small resistance. If only he swore a few words, Zhao Qiang would not dare to repeatedly approach him.
Only this once. She will never come to save him again. Lin Xin turned away and said, “No thanks.” She left Lin Xinyu in the dust, her ponytail swaying as she strode off.
Lin Xinyu looked back at the girl who was half a head taller than him. He couldn’t help but remember when she had suffered a heavy illness half a month ago. It was a stormy evening. Just when everyone thought the girl couldn’t live on, Lin Xin suddenly woke up. She dragged her heavy body towards the canteen to find food, her face as pale as a dead man’s. As she approached the dishes, the girl reached out for a handful of rice, then stuffed it greedily in her mouth. She then went to ask the Aunt at the cafeteria for a bowl of soup.
Lin Xinyu, who usually ate with the dean, wasn’t used to dining at the cafeteria. But since the dean wasn’t present, the boy ended up joining the other children. At that time, he happened to be standing right behind Lin Xin while holding a bowl of soup, so he offered her his share just like that. After she finished wolfing down her food, she looked up at him and said, “Thank you little brother.” Her bright smile that time had no semblance to her indifference today.
Lin Xinyu didn’t associate himself with others in the orphanage; he and the girl had never conversed before. When the boy heard her thanks that day, he shyly replied, “I am older than you. My name in Lin Xinyu.” Although the children in the orphanage never played with him, he remembered all of their names, including their birthdays and ages. He was a month older than Lin Xin.
After hearing his introduction, she stared at him incredulously as if she had seen a ghost. Lin Xinyu felt as if he was a cursed child that was abandoned by god; just the mention of his name had caused the girl fright.
When he was about to leave, the girl suddenly grabbed his hand and asked persistently, “You are Lin Xinyu? As in THE Lin Xinyu? Then do you know Wu Anan? Does the name Wu Anan sound familiar?”
Everyone in the orphanage knew Wu Anan. He pointed to the said person, who was surrounded by a crowd of children in the distance.
Lin Xinyu, Wu Anan, Lin Xinyu, Wu Anan. The names kept resounding in her head. This can’t be a coincidence. Lin Xin, who was currently in a state of turmoil, had actually crossed into a novel.
Even the important second female lead had appeared. She was Lin Xinyu’s young friend, Wu Anan.
Wu Anan was the typical vicious female lead in this President’s romance novel. There was not much description used for her, except that she was a very rich and glamorous woman with a big chest and long white legs. Because of Lin Xinyu’s fascination with the female protagonist, Wu Anan felt jealousy and hatred towards the female lead. Thus, she opposed the protagonist even to the point of murder. Her rash actions would help to crystallize the feelings between the male and female protagonists.
