Retired Villainess Transmigrates into a Cannon Fodder - Chapter 505
The Lucky Star Control Corporation in the 70s (3)
While Chu Xiang was resting, Chu Lan dressed up meticulously, pocketed two hard-boiled eggs and went out.
She didn’t dare to dress up too much. After all, the neighborhood was a military unit, and the people’s acceptance of new things wasn’t as high as that of the capital. Plenty of things were not fashionable, and if you dressed up, you would be labeled a vixen. She just tightened her clothes a little, made her trousers fit a little more tightly, and adjusted the shape of her bangs for her to look better. On top of that, her eyebrows were not noticeably trimmed.
Although these changes were inconspicuous and weren’t easy to identify, when all aspects were pieced together, they gave her a more attractive appearance. She was the image of a beautiful and attractive young woman.
Chu Lan knew that Song Yang liked Chu Xiang, so when he heard that Chu Xiang was injured, he would definitely come over and check on her. The two were not yet a couple, so Song Yang couldn’t openly inquire about Chu Xiang’s affairs in this era. When he dropped by to visit Chu Xiang’s house, he could only glance at the Chu residence from a distance on a nearby path.
So Chu Lan carried a basket and pretended to be on her way to pick wild vegetables. She walked down the forest path with her head down. She bet that Song Yang would definitely call her.
“Chu Lan ~ Chu Lan~”
When Chu Lan heard someone whispering to her, the corners of her mouth curled up imperceptibly. She immediately looked at him as if nothing was lingering on her mind, and then said in surprise, “Mr. Song1? Why are you here? Are you here to dig wild vegetables?”
Song Yang was a little embarrassed. He coughed a few times and said falteringly, “No, I-I want to ask…I heard that Classmate Chu Xiang rolled down the hillside and was seriously injured. H-How is she now?”
Chu Lan was jealous deep inside. She sighed with a look of loss on her face and said, “My cousin? Alas, she fell so badly, it’s very distressing. Why do you think she walked so carelessly? She walks daily on the road, but she actually fell down.”
Song Yangwei frowned and said in distress, “She must have been brooding over her grades. In fact, it doesn’t mean anything if she fails the exam once. Comrade Chu Lan, please persuade her to review more when you go back.”
Chu Lan sighed again. “She has already ended up like this… How is she going to study? By the way, Mr. Song, can you help my cousin?”
Song Yang looked at her in surprise. “Me? How can I help?”
Chu Lan replied happily, “You’re such a performing student. You can help her with her review. You see, my cousin is at home recovering from her injuries, and she can’t go to school, so she’ll be left behind in a lot of lessons, which will definitely affect her review. But if you can help her, she will definitely be able to catch up.”
“I’m more than willing to help.” Song Yang was delighted, and then he frowned. “Isn’t this inconvenient? No, Classmate Chu Xiang is still recovering in the house. I-I can’t teach her even if I go to your house…”
“That’s true.” Chu Lan acted as if thinking for a while, and when she saw the loss in Song Yang’s face, she said, “By the way, there is me. Mr. Song, you can teach me the lessons, and when I go back to my cousin, I’ll just relay it to her.”
“You want me to teach you?” Song Yang hesitated. He liked Chu Xiang and usually only paid attention to one lady, namely her. He has little contact with other girls. Lectures on such matters needed frequent meetings, so it was inevitable that he would feel awkward about it.
Seeing this, Chu Lan immediately reasoned out, “If my cousin can still study while recovering from her injury, she will definitely catch up with her grades. If she knows that someone cares about her so much, she will definitely be happy. Besides, in fact, I also want to take the college entrance examination, hoping that in the future I can go to the provincial capital and make a contribution to the country.”
When Song Yang heard that Chu Xiang would be delighted, his will was shaken. Hearing that Chu Lan had such lofty ambitions, so eager to help, so concerned about Chu Xiang, and so eager to learn, his will was shaken even more. After a moment of hesitation, he nodded. “Okay, then I’ll go back and sort out the review materials. I’ll first pick the general questions Classmate Chu Xiang will likely not understand. Y-You can ask me any questions you don’t understand, too. Then we…”
“Let’s just talk about the matter behind the hill ahead, so as to avoid any gossip if ever someone sees us. It’s troublesome. Let’s go. I’ll show you the way. I often go over there to dig wild vegetables, and no one else passes by there.” Chu Lan’s kindness dispelled the last trace of hesitation in Song Yang’s heart.
Relying on her being Chu Xiang’s sister, Chu Lan successfully made Song Yang let go of his guard and trust her as his own. There they started their first and most natural contact. She enthusiastically gave Song Yang a boiled egg, saying that she would give him an egg every day as tuition fees from Chu Xiang and her.
Song Yang refused, but his impression of Chu Lan became more forthright and generous. He felt that Chu Xiang was lucky to have such a sister.
1 Mr. Song – the original title she used was Educated Youth Song/ I don’t know if there’s an exact translation for that, but I’ll just use Mr.
