Chapter 4: His Tutor
Translated by Addis of Exiled Rebels Scanlations
Hua Tang, the head teacher of Senior Grade Class 4, is a chemistry teacher and a flower demon. There is a top student who has become a headache due to his failing grades in Chinese.
Hu Yu’s total score has been stable at around ninety, if they don’t count his language score, he will be able to advance by at least fifty places in the school leaderboard To this end, Hua Tang took the initiative to find a Chinese teacher, hoping that they could focus on Hu Yu, and help improve his Chinese scores before the college entrance examination.
As Senior Grade Class 3 and 1’s Chinese teacher, Lao Wang went to Fu Anli, who ranked first in the last monthly examination.
“So that’s the situation.” Lao Wang called Fu Anli to his office and explained, “The teacher hopes you can help him and try to improve his grade in next month’s exam.”
Fu Anli was speechless for a moment. Why was it Hu Yu again?
“Of course, being your teacher, I know that your workload is also very heavy, but Hu Yu’s chemistry grade is number one in the year. Teacher remembers that your chemistry score is not particularly good. So you can help each other…”
Fu Anli didn’t know which sentence from Lao Wang touched him, but he didn’t refuse the proposal. Looking at Fu Anli’s straight back when he left, Lao Wang smiled happily.
So after the last class on Monday afternoon, Hu Yu was once again surprised to se Fu Anli in the head teacher’s office. Hua Tang pushed up his gold rimmed glasses, “In the future, Fu Anli will help you improve your Chinese performance, you should spare two hours a day to study Chinese under the supervision of Fu Anli.”
Hu Yu was surprised, and then was surprised even more, before finally returning to reason, “Teacher, we are not in the same class. How can he supervise me in the evening self-study sessions?”
“Considering this problem, Mr. Wang and I have applied for an empty classroom for you.” Hua Tang said with a smile, “There is a small classroom on the top floor that you can use after eight o’clock every night. I have just given the key to Fu Anli.”
Hearing this, Hu Yu’s heart was filled with mixed feelings. He had just decided to draw a line with Fu Anli, but suddenly the guy came out of nowhere and now they have to spend two hours alone with each other every day, this will certainly shake his determination!
“Can… can I refuse?” Hu Yu stammered.
Fu Anli, standing next to him, pursed his lips and didn’t look very pleased.
Hua Tang still smiles, “What position do you think you are in that you can refuse?”
Hu Yu looked at him pleadingly, “I will learn Chinese well. There is no need to find someone to supervise me. Besides, people have their own learning speeds. How can they waste their time trying to help me?”
“It’s not a waste of time. I can learn when I supervise you,” Fu Anli said coldly.
Hu Yu gave him a quick look. What’s the matter with him? Yesterday’s feeling of standing in the corridor came again. His heart beat fast and the body was so hot. This time, there was a feeling of crispy itching at the end of his tail bone, as if…his tail was about to grow out.
The idea suddenly cooled Hu Yu. It’s terrible. He can’t control his tail.
“Did you hear me?”
Hu Yu came to his senses, “What…”
Hua Tang sighed, “Since Fu Anli has no problem, then this matter is decided, let’s start this evening.”
Hu Yu couldn’t agree to it.
Out of the office, they walked one behind the other. Because the office was so remote, there was no one nearby.
“The day before yesterday, you took off your clothes to seduce me. Now three days later, you’re eager to draw a line with me?” Fu Anli walked a step behind Hu Yu, with a cold tone and an imperceptible anger. “Did you think of this yourself? Are you the same person who tried to grab me last time?”
“What are you talking about?” Hu Yu responded after listening for a while, and was also a little angry at the moment. “Isn’t that what you wanted? Didn’t you want me to be far away from you? That it’d be better if I never talked to you again? What do you mean now?”
Fu Anli didn’t expect that the other party would speak to him in this tone. After all, he had been very submissive before. Fu Anli made a hard conjecture, “I… you fox spirits are not so single-minded about your feelings. Shouldn’t I refuse you?”
“We are not fox spirits, we’re fox demons! Who says that our feelings are not single-minded? Are you humans any better?” Anyway, Hu Yu’s mood won’t recover for a while, and the current momentum made him angrier and angrier. “We fox demons only have one real love, okay? I liked you from the beginning of high school! Isn’t three years long enough? You say I’m not single-minded, then present your evidence! Otherwise, why do you say so?”
Fu Anli froze.
Hu Yu was angry at the beginning, but now he became more and more aggrieved, “You say you don’t like me, okay, fine, I’ll stay away from you. Obviously, I’ve made up my mind not to provoke you. Why do you keep coming to provoke me instead? And also playing the victim and putting the blame on me. Did I do anything wrong? I just like you…”
Listening to Hu Yu, not knowing whether he was accusing him or confessing to him, Fu Anli felt that his heart beat was faster than ever before. He’s expression became a little odd, “You just said that fox demons only love once, is that true?”
Hu Yu’s eyes turned red, “Of course it is true. We fox demons will only fall in love with one person in our entire lives.”
“Impossible…” Fu Anli said in a low voice, as if to refute to himself, “Even if it is…”
Hu Yu was so angry that he almost cried, “Although I don’t have common sense, it can’t be wrong. My father told me this personally!”
Fu Anli is silent.
After waiting for a while, he didn’t respond. Hu Yu hung down his head dejectedly and said, “Well, it doesn’t matter if you believe it or not. Anyway, I’ve decided to give up on you.”
With that, Hu Yu turns to leave.
“Wait a minute.” Fu Anli called to him from behind, “Aren’t you… You’ll only fall in love with one person in your life? You’re just giving up?”
Hu Yu chuckled at himself, “If it’s true, I’ll die alone.”
“You… don’t like me?” Fu Anli hesitated.
Hu Yu took a deep breath, turned and said, “No, I still like you.”
Before Fu Anli could breathe a sigh of relief, he heard him say, “But just because I like you. It doesn’t mean that I can always be rejected by you without feeling hurt. I’m tired, I don’t want to run after you like this again.”
After that, Hu Yu turned around and left. This time, no one stopped him. No, it should be said that even if someone stopped him, he would not stop again.
Fu Anli stood there for a long time and did not move, as if he had become a statue.
