Fangirling Chinese Novels

You’re My Glory (你是我的荣耀) – Chapter 7



I read that a reader hopes Jing Jing and Yu Tu will meet each other soon. Since Easter is around the corner, this reader will get her wish granted and Qing Qing will get two bunnies. Unfortunately none of them is edible even though I think she wishes to eat at least one of them, can you guess which one lol?

Chapter 7 (translated by peanuts and edited by hoju)

She did not know where Pei Pei had gone, as Pei Pei has not been replying to her for a while. Qiao Jing Jing practically wished she could travel through WeChat to pull her over.

Pei Pei: “Yu Tu seems to be working in Shanghai Aerospace Institution.”

Aerospace …

To her surprise, it was aerospace?

Qiao Jing Jing sat upright and hurriedly questioned closely: “But didn’t he study finance in university?”

Pei Pei: “How come you can remember so clearly?”

Pei Pei: “How would I know how he ended up in aerospace?”

Pei Pei: “Why are you asking this?”

Qiao Jing Jing put the mobile phone away, with no intention of replying her again. A few minutes later, Pei Pei suddenly sent over a screenshot of a conversation in the high school class group chat.

Ding Chao Qun: @Yu Tu @Yu Tu, last time I bought your institution’s air purifier that you recommended on your Moments (social networking function of smartphone app WeChat). All of a sudden it broke down, but I cannot get through to the maintenance department, so can you please help me to ask them?

Ding Chao Qun: Just got through on the phone but they can only come to repair it tomorrow night. This is being used in the kid’s room, so could you talk to them and have them come a little earlier. The kid coughs whenever he catches a cold.

Li Ming: Yu Tu also sells air purifiers?

Ding Chao Qun: They said it was developed for civilian use. I thought aerospace science and technology will certainly be awesome. I didn’t expect this.

Yu Tu: What is not working? @Ding Chao Qun

Ding Chao Qun: It won’t turn on.

Yu Tu: Is your home in Minhang district, this side of town?

Ding Chao Qun: Yes.

Yu Tu: I’ll go directly to your house to take a look.

Qiao Jing Jing read through the conversation very carefully, and then condemned Pei Pei for simply sending a screenshot: “Why did you send this to me?”

Pei Pei: “It was in the group chat yesterday. I just thought of it, so I let you have a look to show you that he is really in aerospace.”

Yes … surprisingly, it was aerospace

As it turned out, he did not give up his dream.

Qiao Jing Jing remembered that boy who talked with confidence and fervour in the aerospace forum. Suddenly the young Yu Tu became very clear before her eyes and gradually matched up with that Jade Rabbit Pounds Medicine in the game.

Qiao Jing Jing was suddenly very curious. What would he look like now?

If they had a chance encounter in the crowd one day, it should be very amusing. Unfortunately, she could not walk around freely, so there probably would not be any chance encounter.

Outside the window, a heavy haze pervaded to the tall buildings in the distance, such that the actual appearance of this city could not be seen. Qiao Jing Jing sat on the sofa in front of the French window and stared blankly for a while. For reasons unknown, her heart suddenly stirred and a thought struck her mind like lightning. She grabbed the phone and rather excitedly typed: “Pei Pei, let me see that air purifier advertisement that Yu Tu posted!”<

Consequently, the next night, when the usual five-member group, Jade Rabbit Pounds Medicine, School is Starting I’m so Panicked, Slime Package, Dragon King 2001 and Hand Can Pick Cotton, came together to form a team to play a casual match, Qiao Jing Jing began her performance.

Carrying out a multi-step play, she first coughed twice, then complained: “Aiya, the haze in Shanghai is really bad. Do you’ve haze on your end?”

Generally Yu Tu would only speak what was necessary, but I’m So Panicked was the most cooperative: “Coincidentally, Yu Tu and I are also in Shanghai, ah!”

The other two also mentioned their locations one after another, with one in Hangzhou and the other one in Wuhan. They also expressed that everyone shared the same fate of living with haze.

Qiao Jing Jing seized the opportunity to continue her act: “What air purifier brand do you use? My family bought a Jade Rabbit air purifier, but it broke down after a few days.”

All of a sudden, Jade Rabbit Pounds Medicine, who was running in front of her, halted for a moment.

The corner of Qiao Jing Jing’s mouth curved upward.

I’m So Panicked started to shout: “Jade Rabbit air purifier? Yu Tu, isn’t that made by your institution?”

Qiao Jing Jing gave I’m So Panicked a like for his first class ability in cooperating with her act, making her choice to say it while everyone was playing a casual match together worthwhile.

Qiao Jing Jing’s voice was filled with surprise and awe: “Is this air purifier a product of Jade Rabbit God’s company? I bought it just because I saw the name is similar to yours. I did not expect it to be such a coincidence.”

Yu Tu: “It’s a collaboration between one of our laboratories and an outsider. Try using another socket. I have a classmate who bought it too and he also said he couldn’t turn it on. I went to take a look and found out that the problem was the socket in his home.”

…… How did this classmate steal her tactic?!

Qiao Jing Jing forced herself to say: “I’ve tried using other sockets, but it still didn’t work. I’ve made a call to the maintenance department and they said I’m lined up for the day after tomorrow, but the elderly at home have been having a bad cough, aiya ~ ~ ~”

I’m So Panicked: “The after-sales service from the company you’re partnering with is lacking ah. Yu Tu, can you go and help Cotton take a look?”

A like for him was simply not enough. Qiao Jing Jing decided to find an opportunity to give him a full set of skin!

Yu Tu did not say anything.

Qiao Jing Jing’s voice was full of hope: “Jade Rabbit God also has knowledge on this?”

I’m So Panicked: “Of course! He works part-time as a troubleshooting expert.”

Qiao Jing Jing: “Then Jade Rabbit God, can you please help me to look at my air purifier?”

Yu Tu: Give me your contact details.”

So easy? Qiao Jing Jing was really surprised, but she heard Yu Tu continue to say: “I’ll ask the person in that lab to arrange to go to your home first for a look.”

… She knew it wouldn’t be so easy. It was already so difficult when she added him in QQ, so how was it possible that he’ll easily go to an online female friend’s home?

Fortunately, she still had an ultimate trick (play on the words ultimate ability).

“Thank you, but….” Qiao Jing Jing sighed, “Actually, this is the second time for repair. The feeling is that even if there’s a home visit, it’ll be useless.”

Dragon King 2001: “So unreliable. Just where is the problem? I had even been thinking of buying one.”

Slime Package: “Yu Tu, is your institution any good?”

Qiao Jing Jing sighed: “Exactly. I only bought it after seeing the advertisement say it is using aerospace technology. I did not expect ……”

While talking, Qiao Jing Jing let herself silently repent. So sorry ah, O great aerospace technology of our motherland, I’ll certainly add more HP (Hits Point) for you later!

I’m So Panicked: “The maintenance guy did not say where the problem was?”

Qiao Jing Jing: “From what I could see, he was very embarrassed, like he couldn’t find out where the problem is.”

I’m So Panicked: “Yu Tu, why don’t you go and take a look?”

Qiao Jing Jing did not speak anymore because she was afraid that by saying too much, it was as bad as not saying enough. Only after killing the opponent’s Hua Mulan, did Yu Tu speak. “Do you live with your parents?”

Qiao Jing Jing’s eyes lit up and quickly replied: “Yes ah!”

“Are they at home now?”

Qiao Jing Jing suppressed her excitement: “Yes!”

After a long silence, Yu Tu said: “If it is convenient for you, I’ll go over and take a look.”

Qiao Jing Jing nearly jumped up because she had succeeded!

She should not be an actress! She should be a screenwriter.

Qiao Jing Jing calmed down and asked a question to which she already knew the answer: “My home is in Pudong. Will it be a bit far and too much trouble for you?”

Yu Tu: “Never mind, just send me the address.”

After a match ended, everyone left the game.

Zhai Liang went to Yu Tu’s room, “Yu Tu, are you bored out of your mind, wanting to pick a time when her parents are at home to go over?”

Yu Tu took the coat and went out: “Are you bored out of your mind?”

On the other side of the city, Qiao Jing Jing put down her mobile phone and hurriedly walked out of the bedroom. She spoke to Xiao Zhu, who was standing guard in the living room. “Xiao Zhu, quickly remove the packaging of the newly purchased air purifier.”

After saying that, she rushed back to the bedroom to put on makeup. Half an hour later, she came out, grabbed Xiao Zhu, turning her so her gaze was on her face: “See if my makeup is too thick?”

An exquisite top-notch beautiful face was close at hand. Although Xiao Zhu has seen it every day, she still stared in awe now. Qiao Jing Jing let go of her, “Really too thick?”

While muttering, she went back to the bedroom.

Xiao Zhu: “???”

After fifteen minutes, Qiao Jing Jing came out again, already with a fresh and lovely new look. She was wearing a loose-fitting large sweater, revealing her slender and fair straight and long legs. With a loosely tied ponytail, she looked just like a fresh and lovely pretty girl.

“Look girly enough?”

If it was another person, Xiao Zhu will probably say that she was really just too shameless, but at this moment she could only dazedly, cheerily, and with utter conviction say, “Girly! So, Jing Jing, what actually are you doing?”

It was already so late in the day. What was the point of changing her makeup?

Pleased, Qiao Jing Jing clapped her hands and moved  towards the air purifier: “Damage the air purifier.”

Yu Tu followed the stream of people to walk out of the subway station. The night breeze blew over. He slowed down his footsteps. All of a sudden, he felt that everything was a little unbelievable. He had never expected there would be a day where he would go to meet an online friend. The wonderful thing about life is probably its unpredictability. It was just like a few years ago, he had firmly believed he would work hard and put in his best for his interest and ideals for his entire lifetime, but then in the end, he still lost to reality.

The address given by Cotton was not far from the subway station, about a ten-minute walk.

It looked like the security for this neighborhood was very strict. A girl in her twenties was already waiting at the gate. She was holding a mobile phone. From the time he appeared, she looked very excited and stared at him.

Yu Tu walked over to her, “Cotton?”

The girl immediately clenched her fist and covered her mouth in a very anime-like way. She stared at him, sizing him up in excitement, and after a long time, she stammered, “No, no, I am not Cotton, I am her assistant. She is waiting for you at home. I’ll take you there.”

It really was not Cotton’s voice. However, didn’t Cotton say that she was a newcomer in her workplace? How could she have an assistant?

Yu Tu was a little puzzled, but he still kept up with her pace.

Along the way, the girl turned her head and ‘stole glances’ at him from time to time. Once, she happened to meet Yu Tu’s gaze, and she immediately felt embarrassed. “Uh, my name is Xiao Zhu. It’s the innermost building, a bit far.”

Yu Tu nodded, “It’s okay.”

They walked for a few more minutes.

“We are almost there.” Xiao Zhu led Yu Tu, walking forward quickly. Suddenly, she stopped, looked up ahead, and shouted in surprise: “Jing Jing, why did you come down by yourself?”

Jing Jing?

Suddenly something flashed through in Yu Tu’s mind. He instantly raised her eyes and looked, and then he was stunned.

Not far away, the lights in the lobby were shining brightly. A tall and slender woman was standing there, lifting her head slightly to look at the posting on a notice board. Her side profile faced him. She wore a big hat and mask, revealing only a pair of deep bright eyes on the entire face, but still, she set off this entire scene so that is seemed like a flawless light painting photograph. When she heard the sound of speaking, her long lashes gave a flutter and she turned her head.

All of a sudden, that pair of lively, sparkling eyes looked at him, seemingly fixated for a few seconds before flashing a hint of a mischievous smiling expression.

“I was afraid someone might think I’m too much of a big shot, so I came down to meet you.”

It was Qiao Jing Jing.

They hadn’t seen each other for ten years, since the university entrance examinations. Maybe it was incorrect to say that. In fact, he could see her everywhere, in various kinds of news media, all kinds of screen sizes, even subway advertisements, bus stops; her presence was everywhere.

Looking at that woman who was smiling at him not far away, Yu Tu couldn’t help but dazedly feel that —— he probably was having a remarkable and wondrous encounter.

Qiao Jing Jing was also looking at Yu Tu. She thought of a very popular saying. How did it go?

Oh, it seemed to be ——

You’ve retained the purity and innocence of youth.

She had been running about chasing fame and fortune in the world of mortals, but this person was still the same, his eyes bright and clear.

  6. That closing sentence touched me. It showed the difference between them poignantly. One live in glitzy world while the other in scientific (nerdy?) world. He was the one who get away to her. The one who left deep mark in her soul. And might be her to him. How can I not cheer for Jing Jing to woo and win him now, a decade later?

  16. ahhh it’s so cute that we’re getting drama stills from the live action ! dilireba and yang yang are the perfect qiao jing jing and yu tu

  17. To be honest, I hate her dishonesty. I know it’s probably intended to come off as quirky and romantic, but you can you imagine if a guy promised you he had family members at home and tricked you into coming to his house at night? Under the guise of asking for help? I don’t require my female leads to be upstanding citizens, but I don’t think not being the scum of the earth is too much to ask for… Is this a one-time thing or are these sort of horrible behaviors littered throughout the novel?

    • If they were actually strangers, it might be scummy, but that’s not the case here. I also wouldn’t even remotely describe her as scum of the earth. Everything requires context – we know this is how she convinces him to meet up and their relationship can get started, so yes, it’s romantic and quirky. Based on her knowledge of him, it’s more like she’s pranking an old acquaintance. Let’s be honest and say that many “meet cutes” can be considered creepy if looking at it in a pure vacuum. If a stranger comes up and starts flirting, how creepy it is is generally directly related to how attracted we are or aren’t.

      Besides, even though double standards might be annoying, it happens to be far less risky for a man to visit an unknown woman than vice versa. He’s not feeling threatened by her, he’s worried about appropriateness. Women generally are specifically concerned about safety.
