As soon as Jiang Li left, Feng Yu couldn’t wait to ask Chi Fang, “Chi ge, when did you know him? How come I don’t know?”

Chi Fang played with the lighter that was lost and found in his hand, his mood turned from cloudy to sunny, and said casually. “I don’t know him, why?”

“You don’t know? Do you know who he is?” Feng Yu asked, “Why are you so calm?”

“Who?” Chi Fang looked puzzled, he just did what Lei Feng would do. Do you have to know who the person you saved is?

“He is Jiang Li.” Nan Yin, who was beside him, said.

Chi Fang: “Who is Jiang Li?”

“It’s the one who made big news last time!” Feng Yu glanced towards Jiang Li’s classroom and said mysteriously in a lowered voice, “The one who likes Xu Haowen in our class, didn’t I tell you before?!”

He likes Xu Haowen? Chi Fang’s action of his hand paused and looked at Feng Yu. “What did you say?”

Feng Yu stretched out his index finger and curved it into a hook. “G, A, Y, Gay ah Chi ge! Just now, that Jiang Li, he likes guys! How did you get involved with him?”

Chi Fang frowned slightly. “I don’t know him, I just pulled him up simply when I saw him drowning yesterday.”

“So that’s how it is.” Feng Yu nodded. “No wonder he said you saved him, but there is a saying that the saving grace must be returned with one’s lifelong devotion. Looking at the nervous expression he showed earlier, don’t tell me he has changed his target to you?!”

Chi Fang: “…”

“Feng Yu, what nonsense are you talking about?!” Nan Yin heard him speaking more and more unreasonable words, frowned, and interrupted him, “Don’t talk about others behind their backs, you might as well use this time to memorize two more vocabs.”

“Nan jie, I’m just simply saying.” Feng Yu laughed, looking at the lighter in Chi Fang’s hand, and said, “But just now Jiang Li gave Chi Fang a lighter, reminded me of an allusion about lighters.”

“What allusion?” Chi Fang raised his thumb and snapped the lighter’s lid closed.

Feng Yu looked around for a moment and whispered, “My sister said there is an unspoken code in the gay circle. If a gay asks another person to borrow a light it means he wants to date him.”

“Date?”

As soon as Chi Fang asked the question, he realized what he meant. As expected, he heard him say bitchily, “Hook-up ah~”

Chi Fang:  “…”

Nan Yin:  “…”

The appearance of Jiang Li looking at him nervously with his widened black eyes and the wet touch on his palm suddenly popped up in Chi Fang’s mind. At that moment, he felt that the lighter in his hand was hot. 

“According to the development of the story line, he will definitely create a chance to encounter you next.” Feng Yu stroked his chin, talking about his experience from reading novels, “First, he will make you familiar with him by appearing in front of you, and then slowly he will work on capturing your heart and body.”

Chi Fang’s temple pounded as he heard him say this. He gritted his teeth and said, “You better keep your filthy mouth shut.”

Hook, your ass.

Jiang Li didn’t know that his act of returning the lighter had made Chi Fang have a deep impression of him. He quickly walked back to the classroom. As he just reached the door, he heard the boisterous laughter of his classmates. 

The atmosphere of senior one class 5 really wasn’t bad if Jiang Li wasn’t included. In this class Jiang Li was an anomaly.

Jiang Li didn’t go in directly but stood at the door for a moment. His eyes fell on the single desk at the corner of the classroom, that was his place.

The original host’s results were not too good, but he was also not the worst in the class. His height of 1.73 meters was not considered as tall, so logically he shouldn’t be assigned to the last position. However, he wasn’t favored by teachers and didn’t get along with others well, so he was ostracized all the time. Finally, he could only silently sit in the single desk at the corner of the room.

At this time there was someone sitting on his desk. The other party was sitting on his desk and chatting with others, shaking his legs from time to time. Some of Jiang Li’s books were scattered on the ground, but no one helped him to pick them up even though they stepped on them when they passed by.

Jiang Li learned from the original host’s memories that the person who was sitting on the desk was Chen Jialin, the person who saw the original host’s diary and read it out to the class.

When he saw Chen Jialin, Jiang Li felt a sudden tightening of his heart, some kind of extreme resistance was slowly creeping up.

That was the resistance from the original host towards Chen Jialin. Even though he had passed away, that trauma from the school violence left behind was still deeply imprinted in the bones of this body.

“Don’t be afraid, leave it to me.” Jiang Li said softly in his heart, “He won’t have a chance to hurt you again.”

His voice carried a soothing power, the fear and resistance in his heart slowly dissipated as Jiang Li raised his steps and walked into the classroom.

When he passed the first desk, Jiang Xingyu, the English class representative who was sitting in her seat, saw him and asked, “Which class are you from? Who are you looking for?”

Jiang Xingyu was a chubby girl with a relatively gentle personality. She was also one of the few students who didn’t join the crowd in making fun of Jiang Li. Jiang Li smiled at her, didn’t answer, and walked straight to the back.

The original host had very good-looking features, it was just that he had really low self-esteem and had been hiding under his hair and glasses for many years. Now he had a new hairstyle and the soul in the body was replaced, so his whole person and temperament had changed. With just a simple smile, it made Jiang Xingyu freeze. A trace of unnatural red floated up on her face and a question emerged in her heart:  When was there a boy so handsome in school?

Jiang Li walked to his table, bent down, and picked up the books on the floor, patted the dust, and then said to Chen Jialin, “You dropped my books.”

Chen Jialin was telling his table-mates about how he saw Chi Fang and Zhou Kai who was in his third year, fighting in South Slope Park yesterday and how Zhou Kai was rubbed by Chi Fang with one hand on the ground when he was suddenly interrupted by someone. He turned around and saw Jiang Li standing next to him.

Like Jiang Xingyu, Chen Jialin did not recognize Jiang Li and asked irritably, “Who are you?”

Jiang Li did not answer directly but stretched out his finger and tapped on the desk. He then said in a gentle tone, “You are sitting on my table, please come down now.”

“?!!!”

Chen Jialin came to his senses, his eyes widened, looking at Jiang Li as if he had seen a ghost, and suddenly raised his voice. “You are Jiang Li?!”

His words drew the attention of others, the crowd heard the word “Jiang Li” and looked over in unison. The originally somewhat noisy class fell into an eerie silence, everyone’s gaze was filled with disbelief.

“He’s Jiang Li?

“It can’t be, does Jiang Li look like this?”

“This is the first time I see his face clearly!”

“It’s a lie, right?

“I feel like I’ve seen an illusion!”

“Is the gloomy Jiang Li so good-looking?”

After the silence, everyone started discussing, they were in total disbelief at Jiang Li’s sudden change of appearance, thinking that it was just a joke, but they thought that no one would make a joke like that. 

After Chen Jialin was surprised, he remembered that Jiang Li had asked him to get down from the table with a commanding tone earlier, and realized that he dared to order him. His expression wasn’t too good. “Say it again, who did you call to get down?”

Chen Jialin was already much taller than Jiang Li, him sitting on the table currently showed that Jiang Li was at a disadvantage in the confrontation between the two no matter how people looked at them. However, Jiang Li’s attitude didn’t feel like he was being oppressed. His tone was still gentle as he said, “It’s almost class, please get off my table, can you?”

His words sounded like it was a question and a request, as if that sense of command earlier was only Chen Jialin’s misconception. Without waiting for Chen Jialin to think about it, his desk mate pulled him. “Come down first, the teacher is coming soon.”

At this time, the bell rang, Chen Jialin gave Jiang Li a warning glance, jumped down from the desk, and returned to his seat.

Jiang Li also returned to his own seat. The others saw that there was no more drama and also went back to their seats one after another. In the meantime, many people secretly looked back in the direction of Jiang Li, very curious towards him as if he had changed into a different person.

“Host, I thought you were going to hit him.” System said. With the host’s character, he really didn’t look like someone who would hold back.

Jiang Li took out the book that was needed for the morning reading session as he replied, “I was definitely going to hit him. It’s impossible not to do it.”

System: “…” The world has changed but Host is still so violent. No wonder he had asked him that morning if there was anything in the mall that could solve the problem of the original host’s weak body. 

The main system rewarded Jiang Li a lot of points after he completed the task in the last world. When he went out this morning, he used the points in the mall to buy an item called “Strong Body Pill”. After eating, the original host’s build did not change, but the physique was instantly improved to the best state for his age.

So, in such a state, for Jiang Li who had learned wrestling and mixed martial arts for a few years it was not something to be scared of to hit Chen Jialin. The reason he didn’t hit him earlier was because he didn’t want to make a huge fuss in the classroom.

The two lessons in the morning were language. The language teacher was also the form teacher of class 5. Like others, she also froze for a while when she saw Jiang Li, and couldn’t help but look at Jiang Li several times during class. 

Two lessons passed quickly and there was a twenty-minute break between the second and third classes.

Chen Jialin had a habit. He liked to go to the bathroom only when the class was about to start so he wouldn’t need to queue with others, and he could enter the class late. When the teacher asked, he would say that there were too many people queuing up so he was late. 

Today was no exception. He went to the toilet when the class was about to start. He whistled while he was walking, completely unaware that after he went into the toilet the door outside was closed. When he heard footsteps and looked back, the sight in front of him suddenly wavered and his whole person was knocked to the ground.

The pain of the back of his head hitting the ground made him cry out in surprise, but his voice only made a short “ah” before someone grabbed his neck with force and cut off his cry of pain.

“What are you screaming for?”

The person who grabbed his neck asked faintly, and the familiar voice made Chen Jialin’s eyes widen.

Jiang Li?!!!
