The Problem with Marrying Rich: Out of the Way, Ex - Chapter 1275
The rest of her classmates had returned when she returned to her room.
They were all eating.
She had two other roommates in addition to Yang Jing whose bed was next to hers. Her two roommates were Su Qi and Han Danni. However, Su Qi and Han Danni weren’t very close to her. They were both from rich families, so they didn’t share much in common. He Xiyan couldn’t find anything to add to their conversation either because they would chat about the fashion trends of luxury brands, celebrities, and the concerts they would attend. She didn’t know what to say when they talked about those things.
He Xiyan sat down in front of her desk, moved her computer aside, and started eating the food that she had ordered earlier.
The food from the cafeteria tasted average but she didn’t mind the taste as long as she could fill her stomach.
She could smell the fragrant scent of beer, braised fish, and chicken leg, and she guessed that those were what her two roommates were eating. They ate very well almost every day and all kinds of meat such as chicken, duck, and fish, as well as seafood, were often part of their meals.
She wasn’t envious of them and she decided that she would buy these ingredients to whip up a meal for herself when she had the ability to make her own money after she grew older.
A chicken leg suddenly appeared in her bowl.
She turned and saw that Yang Jing had passed it to her.
“Eat up. The chicken leg from the cafeteria is pretty good today,” Yang Jing said with a smile.
She knew that He Xiyan would always eat one dish every day and wondered how she could polish off such dry food.
He Xiyan shot her a small smile and said, “I’m fine.” She tried to give the chicken leg back to Yang Jing.
The chicken leg from the cafeteria wasn’t cheap and costed 4 dollars per piece. Yang Jing came from a middle-income household and this was considered a luxury for her.
Yang Jing gave her a pat on the shoulder and said, “Eat up. I’ve already eaten one piece earlier.”
He Xiyan didn’t know what to say.
She smiled awkwardly at her friend and thanked her.
Yang Jing had offered her quite a bit of food to eat over time and she would often offer up snacks and fruits. He Xiyan felt a little embarrassed to accept her generosity sometimes because these were considered a luxury to Yang Jing too.
Su Qi and Han Danni exchanged a look while they were eating. They put their heads together and whispered in each others’ ears. However, they spoke so softly that she didn’t hear them.
She went to the washroom to wash her bowl clean after her meal and splashed cold water on her face.
She didn’t have the habit of taking afternoon naps so she would open up her computer to work on some simple designs in the afternoon.
As a design student, she had to have a computer because many of their assignments had to be completed with a computer.
Her computer was considered cheap. She had worked over the summer holidays after her high school exams were over to earn the 2,000 dollars needed to buy herself a second-hand computer.
She didn’t mind using this computer. Her only requirement was to get a computer that was functional. She wasn’t envious of her classmates who used computers that cost tens of thousands of dollars.
She believed that one day, she would earn enough to buy herself the best computer.
She started designing a cover art of a novel. This wasn’t a difficult project and sometimes, she only needed 30 minutes to come up with a drawing.
She joined many chat groups of authors who published their works online. These chat groups had hundreds of authors in each chat group and these authors needed a cover artwork each time they released a new book. She would occasionally post an advertisement in these groups to promote herself. She only charged 10 dollars per piece.
She had taken on quite a few projects recently and one or two authors would approach her every day with a request.
