Is It Too Late to Leave the Chat Group? Book 01 Chapter 008: Mock Exams, the Bane of My Existence

Erm…! How do I deal with this? Chen Heng had never encountered such a situation before.

“It’s fine now, Elder Brother. Let’s eat!” After Sirin cried for a while, she gradually regained control of her emotions without needing Chen Heng to console her.

“Phew! Alright. Let’s eat!” Chen Heng heaved a sigh of relief.

“Sirin, you don’t know how to use chopsticks, right?” Chen Heng noticed that Sirin found chopsticks awkward to use. Then, he recalled that Sirin was not from China, so she probably did not know how to use chopsticks.

“Come, I’ll teach you. First, you hold the chopsticks like this.”

Ding dong! Ding dong! While Chen Heng taught Sirin how to use chopsticks, the doorbell rang.

“Sirin, continue eating first. I’ll go see who it is.” Chen Heng walked to the door and used the peephole to check who rang the doorbell.

“Oh! It’s Qingtong. Come in quickly!” Chen Heng opened the door and invited Mo Qingtong in.

“It smells delicious. Where did you order from this time?” Mo Qingtong asked about food the moment she entered. This gave Chen Heng three seconds of heartache.

“What do you mean ordered? I made this! I cooked dinner for Sirin today. You know Sirin, right?” Chen Heng tried asking about Sirin. The customer service had only mentioned a temporary legal identity in this world but did not explain what precisely that covered.

“Sirin? Isn’t that the young girl your parents adopted and fostered in Siberia? Did she return today? Wait, that’s not right. The more important thing is you can cook?” Mo Qingtong turned an extremely suspicious gaze on Chen Heng.

[Author Note: The effect of the legal identity was to make all suspicious matters appear reasonable. Under normal circumstances, how could someone adopt a child, then send that child to another country to be fostered?]

How excellent! She knows it even better than I do. I did not even know that Sirin is Siberian.

“Isn’t it because Sirin was returning? I trained in cooking over the past few days just for this. Want to try?”

“Alright, I’ll give it a try.” Mo Qingtong was eager to try. After all, Chen Heng said he had been practicing for a few days, so it should not be terrible. She could use this excuse to avoid eating at home today. (〃'▽'〃) Mum’s cooking is not that terrible; it just tastes strange.

Chen Heng brought Mo Qingtong to the dining table. Sirin had been sitting there waiting for him to return; she had not started eating yet.

“So, this is Sirin? How cute!” I forgot. Mo Qingtong has a weakness for cute things.

Novel Notes

Hi everyone! How are you all doing? Anyway, I'm here to ask for some help today. I recently discovered another grammar checker tool called prowritingaid and am switching over from Grammarly Premium to that cause it's been pretty buggy on my google docs. Anyway, apparently, Prowritingaid has a referral program that can help me save costs. If I can get ten people to sign up for FREE accounts and edit using it for a bit, they will give me a free one-year premium license, and if I get twenty people, that's a lifetime license. I do plan to pay for the premium (likely lifetime), but I wanna try and save costs at this moment, esp since the income coming from translating is not good at the moment, and I'm still running on savings.

So I am now asking that you help me out by signing up and using it for a bit (You will need to test out some text, otherwise the referral will not count. Just copy in maybe a long document and go through some of their edits.). Here is my referral link.

You can also request for a free 2 week trial for the premium here:

Here's a little incentive to help me out too, if you can prove that you have signed up (You can show me a screenshot on discord), I'll give you 500 Dragon Scales 🐉, which is equal to a one chapter patreon access for one month.


Join the Discord to chat about the novel or anything else and earn the server currency that can be exchanged for advanced chapters (in the future):

Check out my Youtube channel to watch me play games as well as the occasional live translation session:
Also, check out my Twitch, give us a hand and drop me a follow. We do a weekly stream playing games while discussing Chinese cultivation, culture, and novel topics. I also do live translation sessions, or games.

Do support the Patreon as that is our only source of income. Also, you get advanced chapters up to the Marital Disciple tier to read ahead of the public release. Note that any tiers above Martial Disciple will not give more advance chapters for TOOLATE, only 8 max; you just get more EIF chapters; more TOOLATE tiers to be added in the future. You get both EIF and TOOLATE advance chapters.
