Chapter 46: The Past (1)
Is this the original host’s diary?’ Qiao Moyu was a little surprised. It turns out there were still people who kept diaries in this era. And there were five books of these so obviously the time span when these were written wasn’t short.
Qiao Moyu opened the first book and checked the date.
July 5, 2006. Today is my 11th birthday. I took the first test in my class and my teacher gifted me this diary. My brother Xing Yichen will celebrate my birthday with me today.
As Qiao Moyu read each page one by one, she noticed that Xing Yichen was mentioned in almost every entry. She couldn’t understand why the original host would be so persistent towards Xing Yichen, but from these lines, she could see a young girl’s pure first love.
Qiao Moyu quickly finished reading most of the diaries, except for the last one.
Nov 22, 2008. Today, I can finally write on a diary again. I’m in Switzerland getting treatment for my burnt scars.
The injuries on my hands are alright, but unfortunately, the beautiful bracelet that my parents had left me was lost that day when I fell into the fire.
The treatment was painful but I don’t regret it. That day in the sea of fire, I held my brother Yichen’s hand. That was the first time we held hands.
However, Mom and Dad wouldn’t let me go back there. I dared not tell anyone I was injured because I saved him. Will he know that I saved him?
He must know. When I called his name that day, he heard my voice.
When Qiao Moyu saw this, she couldn’t help but sigh. Xing Yichen was truly someone with a wolf’s heart and dog’s lungs. The 13-year-old original host saved Xing Yichen when he was 17. After her burn wounds healed, she returned home to look for him, but he abandoned her as if she was a wretch.
When she recalled how the original host died in the novel as well as Xing Yichen’s indifference when he threw her dead body to be fed to the dogs, the current Qiao Moyu felt a burst of anger in her heart!
She didn’t know if she was affected by the original host’s body, but she tried to control her emotions and kept on reading.
Mar 12, 2009, I finally returned to my country today. I haven’t seen my brother Yicheng in half a year. I wonder if he’s grown taller and more handsome. I want to grow up quickly and be with him.
Mar 17, 2009. I met my brother Yicheng today, but he was so cold to me. Was that simply my illusion?
July 3, 2010. I felt that my brother Yicheng was getting further and further out of reach from me. I invited him to my birthday party but he only said he was busy and wasn’t available that day.
The former host wrote other memories of course, and that day stained with blood and dreams.
Qiao Moyu discovered that when she read the novel in her previous life, she only had a shallow impression of this person. In the story, the original host was labeled as a ‘green tea b*tch’ and a ‘vicious villainess,’ a thorough antagonist.
However, based on these diaries, Qiao Moyu saw a girl who loved learning. She would take the initiative to help her friends, save the person she liked regardless of danger, and study many domestic and foreign films to achieve her dream of becoming a Film Empress. She would hone her acting skills over and over again.
And she finally had a turning point when the true Princess appeared.
June 13, 2014. Today is an ordinary day, but this is the end for me. In the past, even though brother Yichen was very cold to me, there were no girls around him. But today, there is a girl named Yu Ruohuan beside him. Although they haven’t held hands yet, I know that he treats her differently.
Afterwards, the content was sad and depressing. She saw the Qiao family take Yu Ruohuan in as their own while Xing Yichen pursued that girl openly. She read how the original host was rejected by the Qiao family because she had spoken out against Yu Ruohuan.
