Chapter 17.1 – Finding Glowing Beauty in Books (书中自有颜如玉)

It was a crazy week last week at work. So I literally crashed over the week, recouping from the mental and physical exhaustion. 

Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. I did! Totally took the 2 days to recoup and am ready for the battle at work this week! Wish me luck!

Lan Ning is back today. However, I cannot guarantee that she will be back regularly this week. So bear with me while I try to find time to translate more.

In the meantime, enjoy the read today! And have a fantastic week ahead!

Chapter 17.1: Handover

Lan Ning cannot remember how she managed to finish the meal. She only remember that she was fighting the will to shove the food into Yan Ru Yu’s mouth out of impulse.

She returned home angrily. She did some stretching exercise without any success to ease the pain in her heart.

The due date for the submission of the manuscript is coming up very soon. But he actually went out to enjoy the spring with the other authors! Although he finally said that he will bring the computer and will work on the manuscript when he could, but that is nothing definite about it.

She went on QQ to share the bad news with Apple: “Teacher Xing Xin is organizing a large-scale activity..”

Apple: What is the demon up to now?

Cauliflower: He said that tomorrow he will be going to the Spring with everyone. The returning date is unknown.

Apple: …………….

Apple: I think the Chief Editor will jump tomorrow………

Cauliflower: I have blown them into fireworks…

Apple: …………

The penguin icon on QQ is blinking. Lan Ning looked at the identity. It is Dai Qing.

Dai Qing: Md, I had just posted something on social media.

Lan Ning: ………………

Dai Qing: After reading my post, they went on weibo and scold me. And… looking at the text of a thousand words, they were reluctant to give the money to the author. They think that author is free to do free write up? Is it them supporting me?

Dai Qing: In this world, there are legitimate work. As long as you are willing to do the labor, there must be appropriate remunerate. Only writing, one dare to collect the money.

Lan Ning: _ (: 3 “∠) _

Lan Ning: Seeing you so miserable, I suddenly felt much better…..

Dai Qing: ……………..

Dai Qing: < goodbye >

Lan Ning: Wait, do you know what is going on?

Dai Qing: Σ (° △ ° |||) ︴Lan Ning, you have changed. You are no longer the pure Lan Ning that I know!

Lan Ning: ….. So, what it is then?

Dai Qing: < link > This is my male idol singing version. You listen to it

Lan Ning click onto the link to listen. About thirty seconds later, she stop listening while blushing.

What kind of songs is this! Dai Qing really have changed…

She turned off the computer and picked up her pajamas to head into the shower.

After lying on the bed, she was not sleepy. The imposing and dignified melody of the song earlier were lingering in her ear. She thought of Yun Qing saying on weibo about wanting to hear Teacher Xing Xin sing the song, she could not help but thought about Yan Ru Yu’s magnetic voice……

Stop! How could she have such a crazy idea! This is terrible!

After reflection, she pat her face. She took a deep breath and slowly drifted into sleep.

That night, she seems to have some messy dream. Lan Ning woke up the next day but cannot remember what the dream was about. At work, when Chief Editor learned about Teacher Xing Xin heading to the spring, really got upset.

“How come you do not stop him?” Chief Editor suddenly bang on the table. The cup of water spilled out.

Lan Ning bite the bullet and said: “There is no way we could stop Teacher Xing Xin from delaying the manuscript.”

Chief Editor: “……………”

Apple comforted her at the side: “The authors want to drag their manuscript, we cannot stop them. This time, Teacher Xing Xin organizing the tour to the spring with a lot of other authors including those from Wang Junan magazine. They will also not be able to receive the manuscript. This is so not cool!”

Chief Editor: “………………”

She thought for a moment. Really cool.

Chief Editor’s tone ease down and said: “You immediately call him. If you can stop him, then stop him. If cannot, then before they start their route, with the remaining time, arrest those people. In short, I want to see the manuscript by the 15th.”

Lan Ning: “………………. I know.”

After Chief Editor walked away, Lan Ning with a lingering fear and stunned asked Apple: “What are the issues between Wang Junan and Chief Editor?”

She had heard of the Wang Junan name before. Also a popular magazine editor. The magazine is not part of the Guangrong Group, but have been in operation for many years. Was able to maintain a stable sale. Can be considered as《米斯特里》Mistry’s relatively strong competitors.

But according to the editor’s reaction earlier, she felt that those two seems to have other grudges against each other.

Apple turned around the room at a glance like a thief. She lowered her voice and said to Lan Ning: “Wang Junan was our Chief Editor’s classmate in University. They were also a sweet couple. Almost got married. But later don’t know what happen, now both are like enemies.”

“Oh….” Lan Ning nodded her head. She took out the phone wanting to call Yan Ru Yu.

“Puff!” Apple sitting next to her nearly sprayed the water after seeing the name on Lan Ning’s mobile screen. “What is this ‘dog egg to die’?”

Lan Ning replied calmly: “Oh. This is what I call Teacher Xing Xin.”

Apple: “……………..”

Sure enough, this really forces a good girl into becoming a crazy girl!

  1. Thank you so much dear translator fairy godmothers. What would we do without you guys? How can miracles (like getting to read translations of Chinese novels) occur without you guys? Love you all loads.
    PS teacher Xing Xin should follow your lead and post regular chapters of stories. Thank you for taking time to share your hard work.
