Chapter 1: The Busy Patient Part 2—Brother-in-Law’s Job—translated by Raylight (proofread by Trespasserby; C/E edited by lucathia)
Jiang Ziya remembered how Yu Shu had told him to burn Xiao Xue, and his heart sank. He had indeed promised Yu Shu earlier, and had even assured Lu Yang that he would coax Xiao Xue out. However, as things stood, there was absolutely no way he could just sit around and watch Xiao Xue get burned to death!
Jiang Ziya patted Xiao Xue’s back and reassured her, “Don’t be scared. I’ll protect you. No one will be able to get to you.”
Xiao Xue abruptly raised her head, staring at Jiang Ziya in a daze.
“It’s just that I need to go to school in the daytime, so I won’t be able to take care of you then, and I can’t bring you to school either.” Jiang Ziya felt a little distressed. Though Jiang Yu was at home, it was hard to guarantee that Yu Shu wouldn’t pull a trick of some kind. For example, she could distract Jiang Yu herself, and have House Keeper sneak in and kill Xiao Xue.
Both of Xiao Xue’s eyes sparkled as she answered, “I can do that. I can go to school with Gēge.”
Huh? Jiang Ziya felt perplexed as he asked, “Then, what do we do when Sis can’t find you?”
“I can make a fake substitute and leave it at home.” Xiao Xue seemed extremely happy as she said, “With Jiang Jiang around, there won’t be any problems!”
That doesn’t sound too bad… Like hell!
