Yi Ti moved houses.
About a week ago, a lawyer found Yi Ti’s home and showed her a will, stating that an old person named Xu Xiuying had left all their inheritance to her.
Yi Ti was at a loss, almost thinking it was one of those recently famous pranks until she saw the photo of the elder. Come to think of it, she’d seen this elder once.
That was a month ago. She temporarily took shelter in the flower shop they owned during a sudden downpour.
Normally, she would shelter under the eaves of a building, but that day, she entered the flower shop. She chatted with the owner for a little while and then left. She had no idea that the elder would actually leave the shop to her. You must know, although it’s not located on a busy street, it’s not too far away from the city center. Transportation is also very convenient, so the store is probably worth a lot of money.
She was actually hesitant at that time, unsure if she should accept the store or not. If she accepted, the elder’s family would probably resent her. Getting the house is certainly something to be happy about, but even so, it wouldn’t feel right to let somebody else aside from family get it.
The lawyer later told her that the elder had no other loved ones, so Yi Ti now found herself in a predicament.
Now was different from the past. She no longer has a teacher’s license and had to take the Teacher Certification Exam. Last year, Yi Ti passed the written test, but she was flushed out in the interview. So, she could only work in a private high school as a temporary teacher. She had no job during winter and summer vacation and of course, no money. This year, she once again failed her interview. She originally wanted to continue teaching at the private high school for another year. Who knew that the school would actually say there was no vacancy? Only after speaking with a friend who also worked there did she find out that they gave her position to the school principal’s relative!
Since the job battles after graduation, Yi Ti had long learned to accept this kind of thing with a calm attitude because complaining is useless.
If Yi Ti can’t find a new teaching job before the end of summer vacation, while she wouldn’t be on the streets, she would have to get a “degree that doesn’t match the work” job. If her brother knew this, it would give him the perfect excuse to force her back home. After finally escaping from his “claws”, she didn’t want to go back so quickly.
After thinking about it, she eventually accepted the legacy of the elder. That way, she had a place to stay in the city.
Moreover, staying in the elder’s house wasn’t a bad idea because the seemingly-ordinary-to-the-extreme Yi Ti, in fact, had a huge secret.
That is, she’s secretly raising an alien.
This happened ten days ago——
In fact, Yi Ti had always felt that her parents may not be hers biologically.
Because if they were, they would not have given her such a strange name.
Thanks to this gift, she grew up being called「ET」and「alien」. But no one thought that one day, she would really meet an alien.
Location: The trash bins near the stairwell.
Characters: Yi Ti, and a self-proclaimed alien from the Sutahna Star of the M3464 Nebula.
Forget it, she didn’t want to remember it at all.
Actually, it seemed like she was scared by the alien that looked like a slime and screamed or something. Her eyes rolled back, and she fainted or something like that. Then she fell face down and banged her nose on the ground making it all bloody or something of that nature……she can’t remember anything at all!!!
In short, when she woke up, she was lying on the sofa in her home. A soft, jelly-like blue object sat on the couch opposite her, with the same blue eyes peering at her, unblinking.
She quickly got up from the sofa, examined her body a little, then let out a slight sigh of relief. She then looked warily at the unidentified creature in front of her, “Please leave my home at once, or I will call the police!” The police should be able to control……this? They’ve always helped whether it was a cat up a tree, unlocking someone’s house, or assisting the elderly home. Getting rid of an alien……is surely no problem!
While talking, Yi Ti eyed the fruit knife on the coffee table.
“Earth Female, I need your help.” Unlike the seemingly jelly-like appearance, the alien’s voice was slightly mechanical and stiff, but the tone was manly and elegant.
Yi Ti took a deep breath and replied, “I don’t think I can help you.”
Unexpectedly, the alien actually agreed with her, “Indeed, because Earth civilization’s level is too low, my planet did not formally establish diplomatic relations with your planet. Because there is no covenant between our planets, you do not have an obligation to help me. But still, I ask for your help.”
“Because you’re a good guy.”
Yi Ti thought today was really a magical day.
She met an alien.
She was scared enough to faint by an alien.
She was asked for help by an alien.
As well as…….
She was sent a good guy card by an alien.
Although she’d received many cards from small to large, only this one, Yi Ti didn’t want to receive. What is this? Did her “good guy” reputation reach the aliens?
“Earth female, since you have received that label, will you help me?”
“……Why would you think so?”
“When I landed, I saw an Earth female goddess who received a helping hand from an Earth male to get through her difficulties. She told the male “You are a good guy.” The male cried on the spot. I thought this should be your custom so that when I say it, you will help me.”
“……” No, there is no such custom! What did he see? Is it the pathetic scene of a spare tire being abandoned after giving everything to the goddess? Don’t treat that as common sense!
Moreover, if such a setting is used, then the slime is referring to himself as the goddess and casting Yi Ti as the spare tire……
Yi Ti was 囧囧 and asked the heavens for support, “How do you want me to help you?”
“When I landed on Earth, my energy was nearly exhausted, so it needs to be replenished.”
“Replenish……you don’t mean eating people, do you!?” Yi Ti felt that she might have been deceived by the other side’s cute appearance and hurriedly took two steps back.
“Please don’t worry, Sutahna Star has no hostility to Earth. My coming here is completely by accident. Besides, Earth’s human body is not in our diet because it lacks nutrition.”
“……” That’s not reassuring at all, okay? Yi Ti swallowed, then asked, “What do you need?”
“I do not know.”
Before she could finish the sentence, there was a knock on the door.
Yi Ti went to the door, looked through the peep-hole and was surprised to find that it was the building’s security guards!
She quickly opened the door and asked, “What happened?”
When the two security guards saw her, they looked relieved.
“Miss Yi, are you okay?”
“This is the case, your neighbor downstairs heard your scream and went out to take a look. When they went out, they found a small pool of blood by the stairwell. Then there were traces of someone being dragged on the ground. These traces led to your door.”
The source of the pool of blood was evident, her bloody nose when she was knocked out. As for the drag marks……although she was already scared and half-stunned, she really did feel like she had been dragged. Even if she didn’t feel it, the fact that her chest was covered in blood and dust proved it. After fully guessing everything——this guy actually dragged her chest down back to her room……no wonder she was feeling even more flat chested!
Don’t you feel ashamed of doing something like that as an alien!?
“Uh, it’s like this. I screamed because……I found a mouse in the stairwell! The blood is from my nose,” Yi Ti pointed to her nose while laughing dryly, “Ahahaha, I was so scared that I fell down.”
The security guards sucked in a sharp breath and showed sympathizing looks. It was clear from that sentence alone how much pain she was in.
“And the drag marks?”
“Those aren’t drag marks. I twisted my ankle and couldn’t stand up properly, so I climbed all the way up while dragging my feet.”
Security: “……” Is that even possible?!
T/N: I’m sorry if the word ‘elder’ is quite strange in the first part. This is because I assumed it was an old man, but when I was editing chapter 2, I realized at the end that it was actually an old woman since MC is using grandma.
