Chapter 7: She Seems Very Timid

Translator: Exodus Tales Editor: Exodus Tales

“Yiling will trouble you for a while then,” Jian Yuncheng said to Qin Chuan. To which Qin Chuan replied, “Don’t worry.”

“Then let’s start today. You’ll have to work quite hard this week.”

“That is fine.”

Working hard wasn’t a problem. If he did private tutoring every day, this meant that he could get a generous pay daily.

And Jian Yuncheng had promised him that he would pay the tuition fees at the end of every day.

This would be able to solve the problems that he had with paying the medical expenses of his mother’s hospitalization.

If he were to be completely honest, Jian Yiling taking a break from school was timely assistance for Qin Chuan.

Afterward, Qin Chuan went with Jian Yiling to her study room.

Jian Yiling’s study room was more like a little girl. The Jian family only had one daughter, so of course, they had raised her like a little princess. The study room was delicate and filled with the color pink.

Jian Yiling certainly did not like this pink theme. It didn’t fit her inner temperament at all.

However, Jian Yiling didn’t have time to modify the layout and style of her room. She had more important things to do.

As soon as Qin Chuan entered Jian Yiling’s study room, he felt the vibe of a young immature girl.

It seemed like she was indeed the little princess of the Jian family. But according to the words he had heard from the forum, they had called her a devil.

Qin Chuan did not have any interest in this little girl. It didn’t matter to him whether she was a devil or a princess, she was just a task that he needed to complete.

Qin Chuan took out the test paper Jian Yiling did for her last monthly exam.

Jian Yiling only just started at high school. The results of her first monthly exam were incredibly poor.

Out of Chinese, Mathematics, English, Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Geography, Politics, and History, she had failed six units and passed the remaining three with low grades.

Her academic performance could be described as ‘tragic’.

Qin Chuan asked Jian Yiling to re-correct the wrong questions on the test paper.

“I’ll correct them myself first. If there are any mistakes, you can point them out for me,” Jian Yiling said as she tried to avoid as much contact with Qin Chuan as possible.

Jian Yiling was still not used to communicating with people so she spoke slower than normal people.

When Qin Chuan saw Jian Yiling insisting to do it that way, he did not force her to do it some other way. He sat down on the sofa next to her and waited for Jian Yiling to finish the questions.

Jian Yiling took advantage of Qin Chuan not paying attention to place the test paper underneath something. She took out her phone and started typing.

If Qin Chuan were to walk over right now, he would see that all the words that Jian Yiling was typing were English.

After a while, Qin Chuan came over to check how Jian Yiling was progressing with correcting the mistakes.

When Qin Chuan came over, Jian Yiling hid her phone and acted seemingly focused on the problem.

Qin Chuan glanced over the question that Jian Yiling was answering.

He found out that although Jian Yiling had only corrected one question, she did it right.

There were no problems with her problem-solving procedure either.

The progress was a bit slow, so Qin Chuan decided to explain the questions whilst Jian Yiling corrected her answers.

As Qin Chuan approached, Jian Yiling carefully swiped her phone from under the test paper onto her thigh.

Qin Chuan didn’t see Jian Yiling’s phone. He only saw her cowering.

It seemed like she was very timid?

Qin Chuan didn’t think too much into it and began to explain a question to Jian Yiling.

Qin Chuan spoke incredibly well. He explained a complicated topic into simple words making it easy to understand. When he talked about key points, Qin Chuan took a pen and paper from Jian Yiling and wrote it down so it would be convenient for her to review later.

While he was holding the pen and paper, Qin Chuan accidentally touched Jian Yiling’s hands. Jian Yiling had immediately avoided him.

Her reaction was akin to a frightened little rabbit.

At that moment, Qin Chuan felt as though he had bullied a little girl.

However, Jian Yiling only reacted that way because she was afraid to have contact with strangers. Especially if the stranger was Qin Chuan. That sort of reaction was instinctive to her.
