A/N: Anyone want to submit fan art for MDDKM? Letters to your favorite character? It's not too late! Just submit it here for us to post.
I’ve probably have read these chapters more times than I care to admit. However, it's only now I've realized how early Ling Hanyu's feelings toward An Chuxia has changed. I always thought it would be Mingluo who'd be more protective of Chuxia!
Anyway, I'm rambling. If you want to talk to me and the staff about MDDKM, join us in the no-kissy channel on DISCORD (see the sidebar). While you're there, say hi to the other translators in the different rooms Merakii sponsors.

She steps out of the classroom, puzzled. "Why are you here?"
Ling Hanyu sullenly says, "Looks like you're annoyed to see us. Fine, I'm leaving. Don't stop me."
An Chuxia stares at him in confusion. Xiao Mingluo is indifferent. Neither of them stop Hanyu.
"Hey!" Hanyu angrily stares at them. "Neither of you is stopping or blocking me?"
Xiao Mingluo puts his hand on his chest and raises his chin with disdain. "You told us not to stop you. You think we'd be able to talk to her if we walked away?"
"I… ." Ling Hanyu hangs his head and walks back to them.
An Chuxia groans. "Are you looking for something?" She deliberately rephrases her statement from "Why are you here?"
Ling Hanyu shrugs. "We just heard you aced the general exam. We came over to specifically congratulate you. We were hoping you'd join us in celebration at Atlantis? Oh… not…no, handsome guy ."
"What's wrong with you?" Xiao Mingluo pushes Hanyu aside. "We came to remind you to be careful of Mo Xinwei. Hanyu said you don't want us to help you. But I wish you'd take up on our offer to help you."
He says it with such sincerity An Chuxia is touched.
“Why would you want to help me?” They are good friends with Han Qilu. From any perspective, they shouldn't extend any help to her.
Xiao Mingluo suspects Chuxia doesn't believe them. "Han ayi told us to help you. Qilu may be fickle at times, but he's actually a nice guy."
After hearing it is Jiang Yuan's concern for her safety these two boys are around, she feels relieved.
"Okay," she says with a nod.
"An Chuxia." A boy from the classroom emerges. His name is An Chen Chuan and he's the only boy who resisted the review. An Chuxia found it strange when he stayed behind after the rest of the class left. He's very animated. Although she's only been in the class for two days, she finds it odd for someone popular in class acknowledge her.
He's usually the first out of the classroom. What's with him today?
"Chen Chuan, why haven't you left?" She turns and smiles at him pleasantly. She's usually gentle to others… with Han Qilu being the exception. And these two boys. No matter what, she can't like them.
An Chen Chuan unconsciously blushes as he sees An Chuxia smile. He is so nervous, he doesn't know where to put his hands.
"I was hoping you'd finish your business with Chuxia. I have something important to discuss with her."
Xiao Mingluo pulls his senior rank on the little boy. It seems the little boy has taken a liking to Chuxia.
An Chuxia turns around and stares down Xiao Mingluo's arrogance. She looks at Chen Chuan and grins. "I'm sorry they're acting like this."CHAPTER 70 With Other Boys

"No problem." Chen Chuan's smiles indifferently. "May I talk to you in private?"
What is this? A confession? No way!
Xiao Mingluo takes a big step before An Chuxia and doesn't wait for her to speak. "Are you deaf? She said she's very busy so if you can't say it here… ."
Stunned, An Chen Chuan's mood sours. Xiao Mingluo's words lowers his self-confidence.
“Well then. An Chuxia, this is for you!” He goes behind Xiao Mingluo and personally hands An Chuxia a light blue envelope. As he turns away, the sun hits his back, pulling a long shadow on them. An Chuxia, you'll witness me ace this test for you.
Hanyu stares at An Chen Chuan's back for a while. An Chuxia remains perplexed.
"An Chuxia, come back!" Xiao Mingluo raises his voice loud enough for her to consider it shouting.
She remains stunned for a few seconds before looking at the envelope and tucking it in her uniform jacket pocket. She turns and looks at Xiao Mingluo and Ling Hanyu wearily. "Thank you for being altruistic. If I need help, I will remember to look for you."
She returns to the classroom and retrieves the stack of books on her desk.
"Hey, that's an English version of I Have a Dream. You understand it?" Xiao Mingluo is surprised to see the book. Then he rememebers she just scored full marks. The fact she reads such wonderful work makes her sexy in his eyes.
An Chuxia picks up her pace as she heads toward the other side of the corridor.
“Hey, An Chuxia! You just can't leave like that!” Ling Hanyu lengthens his stride and grabs An Chuxia by the collar. He is rather upset.
She turns in annoyance. "What can't I do? Can you be more articulate?"
Sometimes she feels these rich children are really strange!
Xiao Mingluo didn't think Ling Hanyu would suddenly flip. He runs toward them. "Let go of her immediately. Hanyu, what's gotten into you?"
Ling Hanyu can be considered the most impulsive of the three of them, and it's because he thinks way ahead than most people would.
He frowns at An Chuxia. He growls, "Aren't you Han Qilu's fiancée? What the hell are you doing? Are you having fun with other boys because you don't like him at all?"
He almost roars down the corridor. Fortunately, most of the students and faculty are gone. Otherwise, her identity as Qilu's fiancée would be exposed.
She is simultaneously elated and exasperated. Who does he think he is? Why does he think he should manage her?
She stares at Hanyu. "Let's get one thing straight. This fiancée thing is forced on us. Ayi wants me to have a good identity in this school and that's all there is to it. This identity? Neither Qilu, nor I, want everyone to know about it."
Ling Hanyu is stunned. She looks at him and a smile reappears on his face.
"I currently reside in the Han mansion because I'm destitute. YOU can't demand me to do anything. You know why? It's because it's the Han family who owes me. My mother saved his father. You've said it yourself. I don't like him. The question is, does he see it?"
