Let Me Go! I Need to Study! - Chapter 2 - Am I so scary?
[ Translator: Zky, Proofreaders: Maralynx ]
Sun Qian met her colleague, smiled and went to have the conversation with her, leaving Yu Miaoyin alone in the same place. Her legs were frozen and she couldn’t move forward.
“Sister Mi Lin, what movie are you going to watch?” Sun Qian asked.
“Where are the magical animals” and what about you?”
“Oh, what a coincidence, so are we!” Sun Qian asked Mi Lin in which room, row, and did not expect that they happened to be in the same row in the same screening room, and also sitting next to each other.
”It’s true, it’s such a coincidence.” Mi Lin was very happy, but she also remembered that she hadn’t introduced her friend to Sun Qian, and pulled the two people who were playing with their mobile phones next to each other, “You probably know this is Xiao Man and this is my childhood friend, Chu Fanxi.”
Chu Fanxi’s eyes were fixed on the screen of the mobile phone with two thumbs flexibly flicking around the screen. It seemed that he was playing a mobile game. Mi Lin pinched his arm “Stop playing, say hello to my schoolmates!”
“Ah!” Chu Fanxi shouted in pain, raised his head and smiled at Sun Qian, “Ahaha! Well, hello sister!’ He bowed his head and focused on his game again.
Xiao Man was also playing with her mobile phone, but it is not a mobile game. She is probably on a Weibo forum or something. When she heard Mi Lin say to greet her friend, she put down her phone and nodded politely to Sun Qian.
Mi Lin looked helplessly at the two phone addicted people, and found Yu Miaoyin still standing not far away from them and pointed at her: “Sun Qian, the one standing over there, is she your friend? What happened to her? Is she embarrassed to come here?”
Sun Qian found out that Yu Miaoyin didn’t follow her and waved at her,” Miao Miao come here quickly, it’s sister Mi Lin. ”
Half of Yu Miaoyin’s body froze, but her eyes were fixed at the person at Sister Mi Lin’s side. Seeing Mi Lin point at her, Xiao Man also glanced at her and this made her scalp tingle. She pinched her thighs and whispered softly: ‘Yu Miaoyin, you’re insufferable! You just met her at the cinema. What’s the big deal?’
The more she scolded her legs, the worse her stiffness became. Yu Miaoyin will not make the same mistake again, so she quietly sent text messages to Sun Qian for help.
Sun Qian muttered about the text message that Yu Miaoyin sent even though she was less than three meters away, she did not understand what medicine she sold in the gourd, and she had to let Mi Lin go first.
(T/N: what medicine she sold in the gourd or if it translated character by character葫芦里面卖的是什么药 means “gourd-inside-sell-is-what-medicine,” whereas the implied meaning of this proverb would be “to not be able to see what someone has planned” or “to have something up one’s sleeve”.)
“Then Sister Mi Lin should go in first, it’s going to start soon. Hurry up.”
Yu Miaoyin saw Xiao Man go into the theatre, and just like a person who had her medicine, she could now move and her legs were no longer stiff. Sun Qian came over and asked her what was going on. Yu Miaoyin was embarrassed to say that she felt guilty for seeing Xiao Man. She found a reason to stop the past from repeating, and took the ticket and went in with Sun Qian.
The movie was really good, and the magical animals in it are germinated, but the sound that comes from the big screen is actually didn’t get through to her and her mind was not in the movie at all. It is because the person next to her wasn’t a stranger, but Xiao Man. With 3D glasses that covered her face, the screening room couldn’t be seen clearly. Yu Miaoyin’s eyes could not wait to meet with Xiao Man.
Xiao Man wore wide 3D glasses and only showed a sharp curve of her jaw with her lips tightened. Yu Miaoyin leaned against the seat, the amount of the spare light that came through the glasses could not measure how long she has been afraid to approach this girl, and with determined heart, she really wanted this movie to keep on playing and never stop.
Halfway through the movie, Xiao Man took off the 3D glasses and frowned at Yu Miaoyin. Yu Miaoyin who was like a frightened bird quickly moved her eyeballs and stared at the screen intently. Luckily, she was still wearing the glasses and Xiao Man couldn’t see her eyes at all.
“What’s wrong?” Mi Lin asked on the other side of Xiao Man’s seat.
Xiao Man looked at Yu Miaoyin again, shook her head, and pinched the bridge of her nose: “It’s nothing, wearing these glasses puts pressure on my nose, it hurts.” She has bad myopia and was half-blind when she took off the thin-edged glasses, that’s why she doesn’t like watching 3D movies. So this time, if it weren’t for Mi Lin who kept begging her, she definitely wouldn’t be willing to come at all.
Yu Miaoyin perked her ears and listened carefully to the conversation between Xiao Man and Mi Lin. She was afraid that her sneaky behaviour would be exposed. But after listening, she felt more at ease. She didn’t want Xiao Man to finish talking to Mi Lin yet. “That …”
Sister … Sister Xiao Man just talked! Yu Miaoyin was so excited that she was sweating up and down and even got goosebumps.
“…” Xiao Man drank a lot of water before she came in, and now she was a little panicked. She wanted Yu Miaoyin to make a way for herself to go to the toilet. But she was so scared that she might bother Mi Lin’s friend Yu Miaoyin, Xiao Man had to hold it in and continued to wear the glasses and watch the movie.
This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. When the movie is over, you must speak to Xiao Man. Yu Miaoyin secretly planned.
At the end of the movie, Xiao Man couldn’t hold back any more. Before the headlight of the screening room turned on, she got up and rushed out without saying a word.
Yu Miaoyin, who was finally ready to talk but the word stuck in her throat as she watched Xiao Man walk away fiercely.
Yu Miaoyin was dumbfounded, Sister Xiao Man must have found that she had improper thoughts about her and hated her. Yu Miaoyin’s intestines were green now, why don’t you just sit closer? Why can’t you control these squinted eyes! That’s all right, Sister Xiao Man will never see her.
Sun Qian saw Yu Miaoyin’s sad face and persuaded: “Miao Miao, don’t be so sad, let’s go.”
“Oh.” Yu Miaoyin followed Sun Qian out of the cinema in despair.
When the two of them went out, Xiao Man had already returned from the toilet and was now standing next to Mi Lin. Yu Miaoyin thought that Sister Xiao Man had found out her improper thoughts, and kept her head down and didn’t dare to look at Xiao Man.
Yu Miaoyin and Sun Qian stood beside Mi Lin, Chu Fanxi and Xiao Man. There are already several people saying goodbye at the door of the cinema, which they also did and after Xiao Man confirmed that the two schoolgirls did not follow, she asked Mi Lin: ‘Xiao Mi, am I scary?’
(T/N: Xiao Mi is her nickname, so other person called her with that name)
“Why are you asking this?”
“Just now, that little girl beside me seemed quite afraid of me.”
“Are you talking about Yu Miaoyin? No, why I didn’t realize that?”
Chu Fanxi smiled frivolously and leaned on Xiao Man’s shoulders, “You have a stiff face all day long, as though someone owes you eight million or something, how can the freshman girls not be afraid when they see you?’’ Chu Fanxi touched his chin and chuckled at Mi Lin, “Don’t say anything yet, your college’s feng shui is really good and there’s a lot of beauties. And hasn’t Sister Ying also graduated from your college? Look at the two freshman girls just now. Tsk tsk tsk…’’
Xiao Man asked: “Who is Sister Ying?”
“Chu Chu’s most recent goddess.” Mi Lin pulled Chu Fanxi from Xiao Man. “Sister Ying is already famous, so don’t think about it.”
”Xiaomi, you have revealed my scar again!”
Chu Fanxi chased Mi Lin and made a fuss about it. Xiao Man passed a clothing store. The transparent glass reflected Xiao Man’s face, which was not very clear.
“Am I really scary?”
Xiao Man grinned at her reflection in the glass and was seen by the clerk inside, who suddenly shuddered.
Okay, maybe it’s a bit scary … Xiao Man said aggrievedly, but she was born like that, could you really blame her?
“Man, where shall we eat later?” Xiao Man was stunned as Chu Fanxi shouted when asking her.
(T/N: her name is “xiao man,” so the person is simply calling her “man”)
Xiao Man walked towards them. “Anything is fine, but make sure it’s not spicy.”
Yu Miaoyin had the opportunity, but didn’t dare to think about it. She watched a movie with a Sister who had always been in her heart. She was very happy, but because of this, she thought that the Sister had discovered her secret, she had even been dismissed and it left her completely in despair with the situation. She was so excited and also frustrated along the way that Sun Qian finally couldn’t stand it anymore.
“Hey, you will hit the street lamp pole again.”
Yu Miaoyin turned her back sadly and said quietly: “Qian Qian, what should I do …”
Sun Qian was startled. What’s wrong with her? Watching a movie could stun people to that point? “Miao Miao, is there anything that you are worried about? Can you explain now that we’re alone?”
“Sister Xiao Man must not want to see me in her life again…”
Sun Qian was puzzled. Where is this going actually? ‘’Didn’t we just watch a movie? How can it be a lifetime?”
As she said that, Yu Miaoyin’s mother called.
“Miao Miao, who are you with, are you going with your dad or with me?” Feng Jiawan asked on the phone with her face covered.
When Yu Miaoyin heard it, she knew that her dad had been discovered again, and said: “Mom, dad has just been promoted to deputy dean. This time he is definitely busier than usual. It is normal for colleagues in the hospital to celebrate dinner together. Why you have to be like this?”
“So you want to talk to your dad?”
“No, mom, can you calm down? I’m twenty already, what’s with you and him?” Yu Miaoyin persuaded Feng Jiawan.
“How can I calm down when that woman keeps calling him at home?” Feng Jiawan suddenly raised the volume of her voice. “His heart is no longer with me, I want a divorce!”
Yu Hai Zhang, who was also there, angry and shouted: “Leave, then leave! Who doesn’t leave who is a grandson?”
(T/N: Who doesn’t leave who is a grandson?” is like a saying “the last one to arrive is a pig”. And for “grandson” is derogative which traditionally in explanation, juniors should respect their seniors, so being a grandson means your status drops or something like that. This is what I could get from my friend explanation from this proverb)
Yu Miaoyin rubbed her forehead.” Mom, can we talk about this after I go back? Let’s discuss it by then…”
Before she finished the conversation, Yu Miaoyin suddenly heard a scream from the residential building on the sidewalk. She had no time to look up and something hit her head. She didn’t even feel the pain and her body fell to the ground with the head bleeding out, making her unconscious.
There are people at the side of the road with their mobile phones in their hands.
Feng Jiawan felt something wrong and shouted: “Miao Miao? Miao Miao, what’s wrong with you? Is there something wrong? Miao Miao, please talk! Yu Miaoyin!”
When Yu Miaoyin was hit, Sun Qian was right next to her and the flower pot fell from the sky, which happened to hit Yu Miaoyin’s head. The ground was full with blood and Sun Qian was frightened and stupefied at that time and fell to the ground. Shivering, she dialled 120 and explained the place and what happened. She picked Yu Miaoyin up and cried out on the phone while she was still talking.
“Auntie, Miao Miao had an accident …”
