HYIMA Chapter 10.2

The title is “A Fierce Battle in the Woods.”

Lin Jiayin: [Don’t send me porn]

Lin Jiayin has never eaten pork but has seen the pig run.1It’s a proverb that means that a person hasn’t experienced something personally, but he/she has heard of things, has seen them, and therefore, has a little understanding about it. Besides, she also sold unspeakable films for a while. Lin Jiayin was panicked when she saw these words.

Tao Mo: [What kind of porn will appear in a post on the school forum]

Lin Jiayin: [Well]

Tao Mo: [Did you not understand?]

Lin Jiayin: [I did not look]

Tao Mo: [Sister Lin, let me explain to you: Fierce battle (zhàn) in the woods (lín)]2(Fierce battle) 激战 is pronounced as Jīzhàn. (Grove/ Woods) 树林 is pronounced as Shùlín. In short, the title of the forum is a play of words with the Chinese characters of Shen Zhan’s and Lin Jiayin’s names.

Seeing the word “Zhan,” Lin Jiayin’s heart seemed to constrict.

She clicked in to see.

“Today’s featured cp: genius X fool—Jiang Zhishu and Yuan Xiangqin3These are the characters of the popular 2005-2006 Taiwanese TV series called “It Started with a Kiss,” played by Joe Cheng and Ariel Lin respectively (Damn, I suddenly remembered my childhood). It’s based on the Japanese manga series “Itazura na Kiss” where a naive (and a little stupid) girl eventually became a couple with the high-IQ handsome boy. of Huaqing University?”

The post owner did not specify who is who, but the series of descriptions quickly reminded everyone of Shen Zhan, a talented teenager with an IQ of over 200, and Lin Jiayin, who ran backward in a relay race4This is referring to the previous chapters where Lin Qinxuan mentioned that he laughed so hard when Lin Jiayin was featured in the school paper. Apparently, if I’m not mistaken, this is the reason why she became famous and was labeled as “stupid” by the whole school—because she ran backward in a relay race and the scene was featured in their school paper. and made a funny mistake during the experimental class.5This is referring to the previous chapters when Lin Jiayin placed the wave detector on her head because she misunderstood the instructions of her teacher.

The post is accompanied by a picture. The picture is blurry, and the light is not bright enough. Shen Zhan is standing facing the camera, his facial features are not clear, but his figure is obvious. He is surrounded by people who are immersed in the dark. He is eating and sitting beside a girl who has her head slightly tilted. Her face is so pale that it appears like there is suddenly light in the fairly dark environment of the photo.

It was Shen Zhan who just handed her a tissue, and she mistakenly identified him as Qi Zheng.6Again, this is referring to the previous chapter when Lin Jiayin was splashed with spicy soup in her eyes and Shen Zhan handed her a tissue.

Thinking of this, Lin Jiayin frowned.

The name of the post is too suggestive that people who are just scrolling by will click it and have a look. There are already quite a lot of people who replied.

1st Floor7楼 literally means “floor.” It’s a term in Chinese online posting forums. According to Baidu, an internet post can be called a “building.” Each comment is equivalent to a “floor” (That’s why in other modern Chinese novels, people in the comment section refer to the other commentators as people “upstairs” or “downstairs”). Others can also reply to each comment.: She connected it to her head? ! Fuck me so much, If I was her teacher, I’ll make her squat on the ground8I think it’s a punishment hahaha

-Hahahaha my head is gone, my smile is also gone

-Squatting on the ground hahaha

-The teacher probably vomited blood on the spot 

2nd floor: Lin Jiayin doesn’t seem to be that intelligent?

-Mentally handicapped, I am really bothered with this kind of people

-Me too, I even think that the mentally handicapped are not worthy of living in this world…

-Fuck, I hate people like Yuan Xiangqin the most. She can only lick the dog9“Lick the dog” is an internet buzzword. It pertains to someone who “kneels and licks” other people without dignity. They know that the other person doesn’t like him/her but still lose his/her dignity in order to cater to that person. until the end and have everything; why do I have nothing?

3rd floor: Someone actually took down my male god, but… I’m a little bit okay? I think that this is not entirely impossible

4th floor: Don’t think about it. To the person upstairs, Shen Zhan definitely hates fools. Don’t ask how I knew it 🙁

5th floor: I like the Fierce Battle in the Woods10Again, Shen Zhan and Lin Jiayin’s couple name.! I approve! I approve!

The post covered more than 20 floors, and Lin Jiayin returned to the chat interface after reading it.

Tao Mo: [I clicked it and I was shocked]

Tao Mo: [This post owner often reveals cp, often reports a lot of secret couples]

Tao Mo: [I didn’t expect that you and the immortal god will be paired together]

Tao Mo: [Are you still looking at the post?]

Tao Mo: [Are you still looking at the post? Really awesome11The term she used here is 真香 which is like an expression of sarcasm after a person ignored him/her and he/she has to say the same thing again.]

Lin Jiayin pursed her lips and started typing.

Lin Jiayin: [Finished reading]

Tao Mo: [How are you feeling? Did you feel like you’re floating in the air? Or do you feel bad about the comments?]

Lin Jiayin: [How does it feel? I am still okay, but I am afraid that Shen Zhan will see this post and he won’t be happy.]

Lin Jiayin was suddenly struck with sleepiness and yawned.

She touched the screen with her fingertips.

Lin Jiayin: [Sleepy]

Tao Mo: [Don’t be sleepy, aren’t you excited!]

Lin Jiayin: [Do you know how to contact the post owner so he could delete the post?]

Tao Mo: [? ? ? Is it for your boyfriend?]

Lin Jiayin thought for a while and chatted back.

Lin Jiayin: [No matter for whom, the influence is not good]

Tao Mo: [You can contact the post owner or go directly to the delete post section to report it]

Lin Jiayin: [I will try to contact the post owner first]

Tao Mo: [Tsk, sister, you’re so infatuated… If you don’t want to say anything, I’ll continue to watch TV]

After chatting with Tao Mo, Lin Jiayin sent a private message to the poster and yawned after sending it.

She hugged the pillow and fell asleep in a daze.

She doesn’t know how long time has passed, but meowing sounds can suddenly be heard from the outside of the glass door.

Lin Jiayin opened her eyes. When Xiao Hei saw that she was awake, its paws began to scratch the glass door.

The sound it makes can make the scalp numb.

“Xiao Hei.” Lin Jiayin walked over and opened the glass door.

The chubby little black cat swished in and walked around the coffee table, appearing as if it was looking for someone.

“Looking for Shen Zhan?” Lin Jiayin squatted by the coffee table, trying to touch its shiny black hair.

Xiao Hei stretched out its paw and knocked out her hand while meowing.

“You only like him.” Lin Jiayin poked Xiao Hei in the head when the cat was not paying attention.

Xiao Hei quickly jumped to the other side of the coffee table and meowed three times this time.

As if challenging Lin Jiayin.

Lin Jiayin stood up, smiled at it, and said in a proud military tone: “I’m the only one who can like him.”

Xiao Hei gave a long meow, turned its head, and continued looking for someone.

Lin Jiayin pointed to the direction of the bedroom: “He is sleeping, don’t disturb him.”

Xiao Hei turned his head as if he understood, and crouched under Lin Jiayin’s feet. It also sat with its face in the direction of the bedroom. The sparkling eyes stared widely as if the cat was going to rush over whenever there was a movement.

Lin Jiayin smiled: “Do you especially want to rush into the bedroom right now?”

Xiao Hei nudged her.

“Pick off his quilt.”

Xiao Hei meowed.

“Tear off his clothes.”

Xiao Hei raised his head.

“Then touch his eight-pack abs!”

Xiao Hei stood up.

Seeing that its reaction was so fierce, Lin Jiayin herself was amused: “Actually, I don’t just want to touch his abdominal muscles, but I also want to—”

Suddenly, Xiao Hei meowed sharply, freed her hand, and rushed forward like an arrow.

Lin Jiayin turned her head and saw Shen Zhan standing behind her.


[T/N]: Hmm, I don’t like the commentators on the 2nd floor. No matter how high or low the IQ, we’re all equal as humans who deserve to live in this world. On the other hand, oh my goodness, this chapter took me so long to translate as there are lots of internet terms and slang. Anyway, I’m laughing at Lin Jiayin’s fantasy lol if my bf has eight-pack abs, I’d also like to touch them hehehehe
