ATCF Ch 12 Part 1 – Someone Is Jumping off the Building! (I)

Tong Yi pushed open the door, paid no attention to Director Li’s face which was already as black as Judge Bao’s, and said leisurely, “Better give me cash. If you put the credit into my meal card, I may not be able to eat that much.”

Director Li asked flatly, “Are you short of money recently?”

Tong Yi didn’t even bat an eyelid as he replied seriously, “Yeah. Money is a little tight now.”

Director Li: …

Who the f**k believe that!!!

Director Li took a deep breath, took out his mobile phone, opened the WeChat app, and tremblingly transferred 6,830 yuan to Tong Yi’s account. Although the finance department would reimburse him later, his temples still throbbed with annoyance.

Tong Yi ‘kindly’ reminded Director Li, “Actually, you should give me cash. After all, mobile phones are forbidden on campus.”

Director Li yelled furiously, “Who are you pretending to be a good student for? Now you have gotten the money, get out here right now!”

Having been in a good mood, Tong Yi obediently left the office and did not forget to kindly close the door for the still fuming Director Li. After leaving the faculty building, Tong Yi immediately went to the school supermarket to exchange the balance for cash. Following that, he went straight to the classroom building.

As soon as Tong Yi entered the classroom, he saw the Little Moneygrubber eating the bear-shaped biscuits he gave her. Her eating manner was quite elegant.

Tong Yi walked to the desk and put a stack of bills on Jiang Li’s table, “This is the bounty.”

Jiang Li’s eyes lit up. After saying “Thank you,” she quickly took the money and started counting.

Tong Yi was speechless, “Are you suspecting me of embezzlement?”

Jiang Li gave him a light glance, “I’m still in debt with you, remember?” She then buried her head again and continued counting the money. Ten seconds later, she took a handful of bills and handed them to Tong Yi.

Tong Yi took the money, weighed it in his hand, and said in surprise, “It’s only been a few days. Did you actually eat so much?”

Jiang Li shook her head, “Didn’t you say before that I have to pay you back double?”

Tong Yi rubbed his temples, somewhat helpless. He just joked casually, but this Little Moneygrubber actually took it seriously.

“Do you have a bad memory?” Jiang Li stared innocently at Tong Yi.

Tong Yi: …

Fortunately and unfortunately, his memory was excellent, so he clearly remembered saying that to this Little Moneygrubber. Well, it seemed that Jiang Xiao Li was not just a Little Moneygrubber, but also a Moneygrubber Who Holds Grudges Well.

Tong Yi returned half of the money in his hand to Jiang Li, “I was just joking. I am not a loan shark.”

Jiang Li didn’t understand what game this guy was playing. After hesitating for a moment, she handed out a 100 yuan bill, “Rental fee for the notebook.”

“Are you so rich now?” Tong Yi was surprised.

Jiang Li nodded, “At present, I am flushing with cash. After the scholarship goes through, I will no longer lack money.”

Tong Yi: …

He suddenly found out that Jiang Xiao Li was actually not that big of a moneygrubber. She was indeed fond of making money, but this girl was not stingy at all. On the contrary, she was very generous both to herself and others.

Tong Yi casually leaned against the wall and said, “No need for rent. But since I took the effort to face Hades Li and redeem the money on your behalf, you should treat me to a meal.”

Jiang Li quickly took the money back, “What do you want to eat?”

“Your treat, so you call the shots.” Tong Yi politely played the role of an invited guest.

Jiang Li pondered seriously and made a suggestion, “How about I treat you to a hot pot after school next Friday?”


When Tong Yi and Jiang Li were chatting, they didn’t try to hide from others, nor did they deliberately lower their voice. Zhou Li, whose seat was right in front of Jiang Li’s, heard every word of their conversation. Unable to hold back the desire to gossip, he took out his mobile phone and started typing into a private group, telling others that he suspected Jiang Li and Tong Yi were dating.

Others in the group chat didn’t quite believe it. All Jiang Li did all day was sit at her desk and do question banks. At first glance, she was a total nerd and the least likely type to date at school.

Another person also chimed in, saying that although Tong Yi was a delinquent now, he was still the young master of a wealthy family and should look down on Jiang Li, who grew up in an orphanage.

But someone quickly refuted: Although Jiang Li grew up in an orphanage, she was diligent, motivated, and most importantly, very beautiful. She might be the one who looked down on Tong Yi. After all, apart from having a handsome face and a lot of money, Tong Yi was totally useless.

Some people thought it wasn’t a big deal to watch the fun, saying if it was just the looks, then those two were actually quite a good match.

The group chat was full of members gossiping enthusiastically. Jiang Ruo glanced at the screen and subconsciously turned her head to look at the last row. Jiang Li was reading a magazine in her hand while Tong Yi was sleeping on the table as usual. The two did their own things separately, but the scene surprisingly looked very harmonious.

Jiang Ruo held a mechanical pencil in her hand, absentmindedly drawing a circle on the notebook. She accidentally used too much strength and broke off the pencil lead.

Jiang Ruo sighed, opened a textbook, and began reviewing. The mock exam was coming soon, and she shouldn’t waste her focus on Jiang Li.
