Chapter 60: First Task Complete
Leng Ao found himself reflexively walking to Ning Shu’s classroom again. He came to this classroom practically every day. In the past, it was to find Ling Xue. Later, it had been to pick fights with Lin Jiajia. His legs had already gotten used to bringing him here.
He stood at the door and looked through the window at Lin Jiajia. She was currently focused on reading a book, her expression serious. As the sunlight spilled over her, it created a tranquil scene like a painting of an orchid.
Ning Shu sensed that someone was looking at her. When she turned around and saw Leng Ao outside the window, she knitted her brows. This guy was probably here to ask her where Ling Xue went again.
She just couldn’t understand it. Why did Leng Ao insist on coming here every day to ask her about Ling Xue? She didn’t know at all. From how Leng Ao was acting, it was like he suspected her of being involved in Ling Xue’s disappearance, though it was true.
Leng Ao’s heart leaped when he found he had been discovered. He felt a little ill at ease and embarrassed as if he had been caught peeking at something he wasn’t supposed to. However, when he saw the annoyed expression on Ning Shu’s face, those feelings were immediately replaced by anger. He strode into the classroom and walked to Ning Shu. Lifting his chin, he questioned Ning Shu with an arrogant and demanding tone, “Where did Ling Xue go?”
“I already told you that I didn’t know. Why do you insist on asking me? You’d have better luck asking those two good brothers of yours.”
“I… I-” Leng Ao couldn’t really refute, but he still pressed on. “My intuition tells me that you’re definitely related to Ling Xue’s disappearance.”
Fuck off! You think you’re a woman? To even have a sixth sense ah.
Although Ling Xue’s disappearance had been forgotten after being the topic for a time, those who cared like Mo Lengxuan hadn’t given up. That guy even wanted to capture her and interrogate her to get Ling Xue’s whereabouts.
Ning Shu didn’t dare to leave the school even more when she found out that people from underground syndicates were lurking everywhere outside the school.
When Leng Ao found out that some people were looking to cause Ning Shu trouble, he walked up to her and said arrogantly, that if she agreed to be his girlfriend, he’d resolve the situation outside for her.
Ning Shu: …
Ning Shu had never planned to have any sort of relationship with the people in this world. As for this guy, Leng Ao, she’ll just leave it to the original host to deal with him.
She was a person that had to leave this world.
Something that made Ning Shu happy was the fact that the school doctor uncle had brought back news about the original host’s birth parents. Speaking of which, that was also a tragedy. The original host was nothing but a daughter that had been sold by her parents. That family had been too poor. When they heard that some wealthy person wanted to buy their maiden daughter, they sold her without hesitation.
These had nothing to do with her though. She had already helped the original host find her birth parents. She wasn’t the original host, so she wouldn’t make the decision for the original host.
Ning Shu felt that the tasks were already pretty much finished. She was just wondering when she would leave this world when the system’s mechanical voice rang out inside her head. “Task complete. Leave the world? Yes/No.”
“Yes.” Ning Shu chose yes without hesitation.
She was truly tired of staying in this world. The tasks had seriously been too hard. If it weren’t for the school doctor uncle, there was no chance that she would have been able to complete the tasks.
It had all been due to luck. Ning Shu could only send the school doctor uncle sincere well-wishes that his experiments would proceed smoothly.
