Retired Villainess Transmigrates into a Cannon Fodder - Chapter 513
The Lucky Star Control Corporation in the 70s (11)
“Yin Xu!” Yang Yuelan kept dragging Yin Xu’s clothes to tell him not to talk, but it was useless. In the end, she stood frozen and let him finish speaking.
Grandma Chu was a little surprised. It was true that a lot of girls liked Yin Xu before. Although Yang Yuelan had some intention of talking about marriage, she also said that Yin Xu would make the final decision. Their two families indeed had no agreement. But if there was no marriage to speak of, they would have to pay. If they weren’t to give anything, they couldn’t just leave it be. How could the Chu family be shameless?
Compared to giving money, of course it was more suitable to marry Chu Xiang off. Grandma Chu said with a cheeky smile, “Alright, you should think about it carefully. I really like this young man, Yin Xu. Chu Xiang is sensible and educated, and her scars will fade away in time. I’ll go back for now. Let’s discuss this matter more before we decide.”
Yin Xu was about to speak, but Yang Yuelan hurriedly stopped him and glared at him, and sent Grandma Chu away unhappily.
When Grandma Chu returned home, Chu Lan immediately gauged her stance through several polite conversations. After learning that Grandma Chu really wanted to marry Chu Xiang off, she turned around and smiled at ease. Yin Xu was even more miserable than her in their previous life. He didn’t live a down-to-earth life. He got a cart and traded goods. He did earn a fortune. Unfortunately, he ran into a landslide and went missing.
In her previous life, she gloated about it. Yin Xu didn’t like her and refused to marry her. She moved to the county to live a good life, but as a result, she didn’t enjoy life even for a few days. This life was even more unique. Yin Xu broke his leg before he even made money. He probably couldn’t even drive a cart now, so he could only be a farmer till old age in the village. Therefore, she indirectly saved Yin Xu’s life. It was better to live than die. Yin Xu should thank her.
Chu Lan happily went to feed the rabbit, and was satisfied with everything’s development after her rebirth. When she finished eating, she took the piece of paper that Song Yang gave her and went to find Chu Xiang. She started pretentiously, “Chu Xiang, what do you think this is? These are test questions that Song Yang wrote. He gave me a long lecture today. I figured it all out. Take a look, and tell me which you don’t understand, and I’ll tutor you.”
If Chu Xiang was the original owner, she must have been uncomfortable hearing this, but she felt nothing. She just glanced at the questions on the paper and said, “Do you still need tutoring on such simple questions? You are studying too slowly. You won’t be able to get into college at this level.”
Chu Lan’s face drastically changed. “Then how did you get such a low score on the test? Who are you fooling?”
“I was just burnt out. Who hasn’t ever gotten sick? I’ll go to school in a few days, and I’ll definitely be admitted to university. Chu Lan, you don’t have to worry about me. I know the extent of my knowledge.” Chu Xiang lay down, covered herself with the quilt, and looked at her, “Do you need anything else? I’m going to sleep. I’m so sleepy.”
“How are you going to attend school with such a face?” Chu Lan stared at Chu Xiang’s face.
Chu Xiang wondered: “There’s no rule saying that you are not allowed to go to college if you are injured. Can’t I just put a gauze on? My scar won’t be scary if I cover it.”
Chu Lan pursed her lips. In her previous life, Chu Xiang studied brilliantly, and she performed better than Song Yang in school. She thought that Chu Xiang would hide and dare not see people due to her disfigurement, that she would just cry and lose her self-confidence. As a result, Chu Xiang didn’t care about her appearance at all. With the zero possibility of her tying the knot with the Yin family, she might actually be admitted to the university in the provincial capital.
If Chu Xiang were to be admitted, the university would subsidize her. How could the family let her marry? Li Yuezhen would most likely strongly oppose the idea. What about her? If she were to fail the exam, her grandmother would definitely force her to marry into the Yin family for the sake of face.
Chu Lan felt a sense of crisis for the first time after her rebirth, and her anxiety became more and more serious. She turned around and walked out the door while holding the paper in her hand. She had to think carefully about how to ensure that she followed Song Yang.
It was getting dark at this time, and Chu Lan chose this hour to review. She originally intended to end it with an excuse of the dark later on. Everyone had already gone back to their rooms to rest, so Chu Xiang went down quietly and gathered a pile of melon seed peels at the door. With one click of a lighter, the door curtain caught fire.
She lay back on the bed and closed her eyes to sleep. Everyone in the Chu family wanted to sacrifice her, and then settle the matter peacefully. Dream on!
