With a Small Fox

TN: Chuxia’s name means early summer. Her pen name, Xiamo, means late summer.
An Chuxia can’t help but laugh out loud. Her fingers type swiftly, pounding a string of characters.
Shunu Nanwei: Celebrate! Starting today, I must devote myself to literature. I’ll be online on a daily basis!
Soon, the chat box pops up with Meng Meng’s reply. “With your dedication to whom, as long as you’re willing! ~ But I decided not to surprise you! Listen! Monday, the old lady decided to enroll me in Stein College!”
The note made An Chuxia’s brow wrinkle. Meng Xiaonan has always lived with her mother. A few years back, her father went out for a walk and never came back. That was a decade ago.
Is her father back? As she guesses right, Xiaonan’s message pops.
Cinderella’s Eldest Sister: My father came back, but only for me. He refuses to take my mother since he has a mistress. That mistress is… like a small fox! Very irksome! Anyway, I’ll be in Stein the day after tomorrow after I get settled in.
Xiaonan writes down a lot of words. She doesn’t wait for An Chuxia to reply. Her QQ avatar goes dark. She shrugs, hoping things would turn out well. She feels Stein and Xiaonan are going to be incompatible. Meng Xiaonan hopes things would turn out well. Otherwise… who knows what would happen.
An Chuxia turns off the chat window and opens the browser. In the Baidu box, she types: “bookshelf”.
After entering the bookshelf net, she searches for Jiang Yuan’s pen name: Jiangzi Dashen. She didn’t think her account would be the home page’s top banner. It reads: Jiangzi Dashen recent work lifts a ban…
She scrolls down. A variety of red envelopes, gold medals, and click lists referring to Jiangzi Dashen’s work is posted. This is Jiang Yuan’s work!
It is such a pleasant surprise! Her fingers on the mouse trembles. She picks one of Jiangzi Dashen’s novels to skim. This is a cross-type of novel. But in all honesty, she thinks Jiang Yuan uses her Han status to be a big name in the famous website. However, after reading the novel, she finds the ups and downs of the plot to be fascinating. If Chuxia is to be true to herself, she fears she won’t be good enough to make money from writing.
Suspense awaits the readers at the end of the chapters Jiangzi Dashen write, making the readers look forward to the next chapter. This is probably why the novel appeals to many. She secretly stores this information in her mind.
She wanted to use her real name when she starts building her username. But thinking this is inappropriate, she uses Xiamo as her user and pen name; it is the opposite of Chuxia, after all.
That night, she spends a lot of time on bookshelf net. At the bottom of the screen, it displays 11:00. She has since created a new book called “Demon Boy, Do Not Kiss Me”. Since she is adept at writing, she constantly gets awards on her essays.
She has unexpectedly written over 10,000 characters. Since it is a requirement to write at least 10,000 characters to be verified, she sent her post for auditing.
After completing her task, she relaxes. She turns off the light in the room and lays on her bed. Her brain is filled with thoughts on her novel. Would her writing be verified tomorrow? Amitabha Buddha, Buddha bless, help this novel pass the auditing process smoothly… .
Using Violence Early in the Morning
Translated, edited, and proofread by newbienoona
The alarm goes off loudly. Unable to drown the sound by rolling in bed, she sits up and throws a pillow at it. “Die!”
Coincidentally, the door opens. Han Qilu witnesses her dewy, half-exposed shoulder… Along with her messy hair. Her pillows and dolls are all on the floor.
He grins after taking a closer look. Albeit calm, he teases her slowly. “Yo, isn’t it too early in the morning to be using violence, tyrant wolf sister?”
She completely awakens from her stupor the moment she hears ‘tyrant wolf sister’. The nickname in itself is a greater deterrent compared to the alarm clock. She finally opens her eyes and is haplessly greeted by Han Qilu’s face! Damn it, how can it be him she sees first thing in the morning?
“Starting the day early, ah… .” Han Qilu tents his eyebrow before continuing, “Servants are preparing for lunch.”
Chuxia jumps down from the bed, sorts out clothes, and sets the alarm clock back on the desk. The room quiets down immediately. She had set her alarm for nine this morning, and now, it’s almost ten o’clock! The clock has been ringing for almost an hour. So much for it serving a purpose!
She ignores Han Qilu as he stands at the entrance. She walks into the bathroom to wash her face and brush her teeth. Not bothering to comb her hair, she looks for a rubber band to secure her hair. Han Qilu anxiously stares at her reflection. He couldn’t help but come to her side and say, “You didn’t think today’s Monday?”
She walks toward the desk and flips the notebook and boots the computer before glancing at him. “Only a stupid person will think today’s Monday. If I may trouble you to get me some breakfast, stupid young master, I’ll be grateful.”
He frowns unhappily as he watches her sit in front of the computer. Is the computer more attractive than the future heir of Han Group? But it would take a miracle for An Chuxia to be addicted to an online game. Moping, he leaves and obediently fetches her breakfast.
Jiang Yuan has stayed up all night drafting her manuscript. She happens to run into Han Qilu as he takes breakfast up the stairs.
“Good morning, son. Do you know how many words this old lady wrote last night? I wrote… .” Han Qilu brushes past her, not even looking her in the eye. Her lips purse as she bursts into tears the moment she reaches the landing. She picks up the phone to call Han Liuhai. Her asshole of a son ignored her! She wants Han Liuhai to come back and teach him a lesson!
An Chuxia is surprised to see her own novel as a new recommendation on the homepage! They’ve also put a beautiful cover to match it. She remembers not having the time to put one earlier. She rushes to comment section to see it accumulate over 100 comments. One of them attracts her attention.
Bookshelf net editor-in-chief: Hello, Author Xiamo, your novel content has both comedic and character development. We would like to recommend and push this original novel on the homepage. For follow-up development and signing, please add my QQ: “XXXXXX”.
She blinks. She can’t believe what she’s seeing. She looks at the comments again. A large number of the comments think the heroine has brain damage. They actually don’t know someone like her exists.
A joke. They think she has brain damage? Her story is about how she got to live at the Hans, and living with the demon, Qilu, of course. She just uses pseudonyms in the novel.
