The Legitimate Daughter Doesn’t Care! - Chapter 12
Tong Yan moved around clumsily and before taking out Xu Xinduo’s brand new mobile phone. He found that Xu Xinduo had yet to set a fingerprint or face recognition lock. He could only try to type in the password to access the phone’s contents but in the end, he couldn’t unlock it at all.
After giving up on the pointless struggle, he could only stand up and pace around in the room as he wanted to see where he was. After looking around, this was probably… Xu Xinduo’s neighbourhood?
Tong Yan sat on the windowsill and took a glance at the room, scratching his head impatiently.
Why was he forced to switch again?
Xu Xinduo and Tong Yan had begun swapping their bodies ever since they were seven years old. The first time it happened, both of them were shocked.
Xu Xinduo was still the calmer one— she first confirmed her current body’s state and then tried to familiarise herself with the new environment, calmly trying to ascertain what was going on.
Tong Yan was frightened at first, but then, he accepted it matter of factly. He wandered around the village, catching fish in the streams and even going up the mountains to pick some fruits. Overall, he had enjoyed a particularly good time.
When they were younger, they were forced to switch bodies. In that sense, under uncertain circumstances, they were forced to swap bodies. Sometimes, they would be able to switch back after a few minutes. However, there were also times when they couldn’t switch back to their own bodies despite a couple of days’ passing.
They started to leave messages in their respective houses so that they could get in touch with each other.
After the two children talked over the phone, they learned about each other’s situations. Neither of them told the adults of this matter but gradually, they started to accept the bizarre deal fate had handed them.
They exchanged their contact information and spoke on a lot of things before setting up some rules for the other party. After some time, they could swap their bodies whenever they wanted.
However, there was also a limitation. They could only switch bodies four times in a day at most. Switching over and then returning counted as switching twice, so they could only switch back and forth 2 times in 24 hours.
For the past two years, both of them had been able to switch bodies at will. As long as the switches didn’t exceed the daily limit, there was no problem.
Then came the forceful swapping of bodies that suddenly caught Tong Yan off guard. He wasn’t aware that he would end up in this situation, after all.
So, he sat in silence for more than an hour without anyone coming in nor him going out. He was afraid of making any mistakes so he thought it was safer to remain where he was.
For example, Xu Xinduo had entered this place normally. If he went outside and was asked what he was doing in here, it would cause suspicion. It was easier to solve the problem by staying in his seat.
After some time, he felt as if Xu Xinduo wanted to switch back their bodies so he immediately cooperated.
Xu Xinduo returned and saw that she was actually sitting on the windowsill. She got down quickly and patted her cheeks to get rid of the irritation from before.
When she got into Tong Yan’s body, she’d found herself in a dressing room. There were more than a dozen people changing clothes around him and she almost collapsed.
It was too much for her to take and she wanted nothing more than to go back.
Wasn’t he competing overseas?
He can’t even wait for half a month?
Looking around the room, she went to pick up her paper before realising that it was blank. She could only go back to her seat and sit down. Taking a pen, she began to answer the questions.
It didn’t come across as a surprise to her that Tong Yan failed to notice the paper that was under the table. The problem was there were three sets of questions in total and a lot of time had passed since they switched. Even if there were not too many questions, she needed to speed up her work in order to finish.
She answered the simple ones quickly, keeping the time-consuming questions for later. She finished the easy parts of each set of questions in no time. Still, there wasn’t much time left as she only had eight minutes to answer each set of questions.
When the teacher came over to collect the papers, Xu Xinduo didn’t dwell on it and quickly handed in the answer sheet.
The teacher took a look at the answer sheet before bringing Xu Xinduo to a classroom.
