The Body Swap Game - Chapter 54
Xia Yu woke up the next morning, which was also a Tuesday. He first opened the game panel to take a look.
He now had 2300 points in the game, wherein 1440 points were earned as a bonus from his time with Xu Youxiang yesterday.
He had enough points to exchange for four 2x experience props, so he could go learn with An Siyao tonight.
He’d already finished learning “Ode to the Sun.” As such, the next song would be the cold yet gentle “A Drawn World.”
After deciding his plans for the day, Xia Yu stood up and left the room to wash up.
He got up a little late today, but it wasn’t a big deal.
He didn’t need to go to school today.
Today was the study-trip for the students of Zilang City. When first-grade students left for the trip, the school also gave time off to the second and third graders for a total of three days.
On the Friday after the three days ended, there would be a day of classes, followed by Saturday and Sunday off. This was unlike some worlds, where a vacation meant one’s Saturdays and Sundays would be deducted. Sometimes, the deducted days even out-numbered the vacation days.
Youxue, who went to a Zilang public school, also enjoyed this holiday.
The girl got to sleep in, which was a rare occurrence. When Xia Yu was washing his face, she squinted and walked into the restroom with tired eyes.
Xia Yu wet the towel and wiped her face.
“Ooh!” Youxue woke up instantly.
“Morning,” the girl said with energy.
Xia Yu adjusted her messy hair as an answer.
“Move a little, brother.” Squeezing next to Xia Yu, Youxue started brushing her teeth.
After a while, before Xia Yu finished washing his face, she asked, “Are you busy around noon?”
“I just have to work around 3, and have nothing else, why?” Xia Yu asked.
Youxue looked happy. She estimated the time and told Xia Yu, “How about if we go out around 10?”
“Where are we going?” Xia Yu didn’t mind spending time with his sister.
“We’ll meet up at the plaza first. Yan Li is going too,” Youxue said as a preamble.
“Yan Li? Your classmate who wears glasses?” Xia Yu asked.
“Not her, another person.”
“OK.” Xia Yu agreed.
“Then, it’s decided! I’ll tell Yan Li first.”
Rushing to finish brushing her teeth and washing her face, Youxue went back to her room.
Xia Yu could only open the fridge and make a bowl of instant noodles.
Two hours quickly passed. At 10 o’clock, Youxue grabbed Xia Yu to go out. They went to the plaza in front of her school.
The plaza was spacious with a beautiful and very noticeable waterfall in the middle, so many people used this spot as a meet-up location.
There were also many straight couples among them. After all, if gay couples wanted to meet up, they’d meet at home and not go out.
Youxue dragged Xia Yu to the waterfall, asked him to wait, then left, saying she was looking for Yan Li.
Xia Yu got a message after three minutes.
“I found Yan Li, but there’s an event here, so we will do that and not meet up with you yet.”
“Yan Li’s older sister is at the plaza too. You can hang out with her! Her sister is wearing a…”
Looking at the two messages, Xia Yu analyzed the situation and realized there was a trap.
He’d try something.
He moved his fingers and replied:
“I’m with Yan Li’s older sister, we can join you guys for the event.”
Youxue quickly replied again:
“The event had already started!”
“It’s okay. We will just stand there and watch.”
“No no, wait until we’re starting.”
Then, Youxue remained silent.
By now, Xia Yu was certain this outing was a plot by Youxue.
The point of the plot was to make him and Yan Li’s sister spend some alone-time?
As he was feeling doubtful, Xia Yu looked around him with the information from Youxue and quickly located his target.
It was a girl who was dressed rather shabbily, but who was surprisingly pretty.
Xia Yu was surprised after seeing her clearly.
The girl was also looking around while checking her phone. After a while, she also noticed Xia Yu.
She looked surprised as well.
The two of them looked at each other for five seconds before Xia Yu came toward the girl. “Are you Lili’s older sister?”
“Yes.” The girl was a bit embarrassed and nervous at the same time.
Anyone who saw their crush, after being rejected recently, would be a little embarrassed.
Yes, this girl was the same one who professed her love for Xia Yu after the cultural festival.
Her name was Yan Wei.
“If I’m not mistaken, we were both swindled by our younger sisters. What did your younger sister say to you?”
“She said she wanted to go out this afternoon and asked me to take her, then she brought me here and disappeared.”
Earlier, Yan Wei was a little angry at her younger sister’s actions, after seeing Xia Yu, however, her anger quickly dissipated.
“That’s what my younger sister told me too,” Xia Yu answered.
Yan Wei instantly understood the two younger sisters’ intentions. Her face reddened.
At the same time, she began to feel hopeful.
While her first confession of love failed, she’d still have a chance, right?
She’d give her younger sister an extra drumstick when she gets home.
“I don’t know where the two of them went. Let’s just find a place to sit.”
With Xia Yu’s guidance, the two of them went to a bubble tea shop and began drinking tea.
The mood felt a little stiff. Yan Wei wanted to speak a few times but always lacked courage.
Xia Yu observed her.
Yan Wei’s clothes were not trendy, they were loose-fitting and conservative, so she only looked adorable. Of course, her figure gave her more points.
Xia Yu had never looked at her carefully before. Now, he realized Yan Wei was actually a rare young beauty.
Too bad he wasn’t interested in her type.
He started a random topic. “When I was in middle school, there was a student in another class who really looked like you. Do you have a relative who looks like you?”
“That was me.” Yan Wei’s expression showed a grudge.
“… ha ha, so we were in the same middle school. I never realized.” Xia Yu picked up his bubble tea and took a sip, trying to ease the awkwardness.
“I wasn’t noticeable at all. It was typical for me to be ignored.”
Xia Yu glanced at her, doubting the use of the words “not noticeable.”
Although he didn’t voice his inner questions. He comforted Yan Wei, “In middle school, I never cared about anything outside class.”
“I know. You always looked very busy every day.”
“So we’re classmates then. You must know Ah-Mao right?”
Ah-Mao was a nickname given to a substitute teacher by Xia Yu’s middle school friends.
“The math teacher?” Yan Wei continued the conversation.
The awkwardness and silence were disrupted, and the two of them began chatting happily.
But this chat didn’t last.
A young guy came into the bubble tea shop and suddenly grabbed Yan Wei.
“Wei Wei, don’t pretend like a high school student to guys. Your baby is crying for milk!” the guy said.
“I wasn’t!” Yan Wei anxiously waved her hand.
