Chapter 100 | I just want to be a salted fish quietly

Mathematics makes me happy!

Early morning.

At seven o’clock, Lin Xian got up on time.

Zhuang Tong who was beside him was still asleep with a faint smile on her lips.

The sun shone brightly on her short cyan hair, which looked extraordinarily gorgeous.

The two of them have fun until more than 12 o’clock before finally falling asleep. At this moment, despite Lin Xian’s physique, he felt a backache.

After getting dressed and taking a shower, the door to the guest room opened and Nie Qingqing came out yawning.

The girl is a little sluggish with two dark circles faintly visible under her eyes.

She obviously did not sleep well.

“Did you stay up all night?” Lin Xian raised his eyebrows and asked.

“It’s not because of you!”Nie Qingqing glared at Lin Xian angrily and walked to the bathroom.

Nie Qingqing was in fact woken up several times in the middle of the night so she slept sparsely.

Lin Xian just ignored her and went downstairs to begin his morning run.

With Zhuang Tong, his little lover, Lin Xian became more passionate about exercising.

As for the reason, everyone understands why…

As usual, after running for half an hour, Lin Xian bought breakfast at the gate of the community and took the same home.

Zhuang Tong was really tired last night and she probably won’t get up and sleep until noon. So, Lin Xian left her alone and went ahead to eat breakfast on his own.

After washing up, Nie Qingqing was not polite. She directly sat opposite Lin Xian and picked up a bun and took a bite, asking: “What are you going to do today?”

Lin Xian responded: “I am going to class after breakfast. As for the two of you, you may make do as you please!”

Hearing that, Nie Qingqing raised her eyebrows and asked: “Aren’t you afraid that Zhuang Tong will run away with the house and car?”

“Why do you think I chose Zhuang Tong as my lover?” Lin Xian smiled.


Nie Qingqing was dumbfounded. Her face is full of doubts.

“Because I’m the same person as she is.”

After drinking soy milk, Lin Xian picked up the car key, waved his hand, and said, “Eat slowly. I will be off first!”

Lin Xian admits that buying a house in Zijin Mountain is a really good decision. It is very convenient to drive to school in just ten minutes.

Back in the dormitory, Wang Zejing and the others have not gotten up yet.

Lin Xian didn’t bother them and just took out his drawing tools and went to the living room.

He began to practice sketching according to the steps in the basic teaching.

No matter what kind of painting technique you would want to learn, you must learn how to sketch first.

It’s needless to say that sketching is the foundation of all painting arts.

Before there is art, there is shape.

Any form of painting is built on shape.

Even if you want to master the Chinese ink wash painting, it is necessary to learn sketching first. Though in Chinese ink wash painting, it is not called sketching, but Manual of the Mustard Seed Garden. (T/N: Manual of the Mustard Seed Garden, sometimes known as Jieziyuan Huapu, is a printed manual of Chinese painting compiled during the early-Qing Dynasty)

If you are just starting, it is best to sketch something simple.

What Lin Xian was painting at the moment was a glass of water seated on the table.

Practicing painting and calligraphy using a hard brush is such a boring process. Fortunately, Lin Xian is not impatient.

It took more than half an hour for him to complete the sketch of a glass of water.

Looking at the sketch on the drawing paper, Lin Xian couldn’t help but pout.

He did not plan, however, to throw away the drawing paper and planned to save it.

He would come back to it after a week and compare his new sketches so that he could see clearly how he progresses.

“Brother Lin, when did you come back?”

At this time, Zhang Kai walked out of the room with a toothbrush and was slightly surprised to see Lin Xian.

“I came back a little while ago.”

Lin Xian asked as he was packing up his drawing tools, “What classes do we have today?”

After thinking for a while, Zhang Kai replied, “There is a major course in the morning and English in the afternoon. I am not so sure about the elective courses.”

“Very good! Another enjoyable math class all day!” Lin Xian said with a smile.

Hearing this, Zhang Kai was taken aback and reminded Lin Xian, “Brother Lin, there is no advanced math class today!”

“Never mind, it is hard for me to explain.”

Lin Xian glanced at him and found the book ‘New Lectures on Mathematical Analysis’ on the bed.

For today’s two major classes, he will rely on it.

After 8:30, Lin Xian walked to the teaching building with the book in his arms.

Walking into the classroom, Lin Xian saw that Ling Youyu was not there, so he just found a seat in the back row and sat down, and then opened the book.

In high school, Lin Xian was really not interested in studying, especially mathematics.

But ever since he used the 【Absolute Focus】skill to read in one seating the freshman mathematics textbook, he suddenly became interested in it.

At this time, Lin Xian read the boring ‘New Lectures on Mathematical Analysis’ in the eyes of other students.

Zhang Kai on the side glanced at the dense numbers and symbols on the book and then immediately looked away.

He could not help but let out a sigh and say: “ I really don’t know how can Brother Lin look at this…”

Lei Hongguang continued: “To be honest, I actually thought that for someone as handsome and rich as brother Lin, he should be living a life drowning in wine and money instead of practicing calligraphy and painting, and learning advanced mathematics like he is doing now.”

“Why? do you think Brother Lin’s life is not cool?” Wang Zejing chuckles.

Zhang Kai said sternly,”I got it! I heard that the rich people are actually very empty inside because money is no longer attractive to them. And their daily life is extremely boring. Do you think brother Lin is bored?”

Hearing this, Lin Xian raised his head and glanced at him and said, “No, you don’t know the happiness of the rich at all!”


For a moment, the atmosphere went silent.

Wang Zejing said in a sullen tone: “Don’t you feel uncomfortable discussing this issue early in the morning?”


When you take studying as fun, it’s easy to get addicted to it.

Lin Xian is now like this. He didn’t even notice Ling Youyu was seated beside him.

The little girl put her cheeks on her palms and listened to the class earnestly.

She glanced at Lin Xian from time to time, her eyes were full of happiness.

In her mind, there is nothing happier than this.

Time passed by and when Lin Xian raised his head, he couldn’t help but be stunned.

The huge classroom was already empty.

There were only him… and Ling Youyu beside him.

Lin Xian raised his eyebrows and said, “Class is over?”

“Mmm-mmn!” The little girl nodded vigorously.

“Then why didn’t you tell me?” Lin Xian quibble.

“I…I am…I…I am afraid…”

Ling Youyu blushed and sighed after speaking. She picked up a pen and wrote: I am afraid to disturb you.

Looking at the time on his watch, Lin Xian realized that it was almost half-past twelve.

He looked at Ling Youyu next to him and asked with a smile: “You have been with me until now?”


The little girl’s pretty face was slightly red and she looked cute with her shy appearance.

Lin Xian reached out and pinched her smooth white cheeks and said, “Are you hungry? I will treat you to a meal!”

Hearing this, Ling Youyu’s face turned even red and her heart almost jumped out of excitement.
