This is great. I like that the relationship is developing (helps one of the girls is a lesbian flat out) as well as the subversion of the bully play. Tho I wouldn't mind more snippits of it because the valentines day short was so cute
God they're just too cute my heart hurts. I like how the compensated dating misunderstanding got resolved immediately (i didnt expect that, would have thought that would run til the end) and the reason like tongtong is a good person and that made lin xiao bravely tell her the truth.
Oh no, what happened to my happy fun times with the funny misunderstanding and blackmail kink!?
On a serious note, I'm also surprised at that the whole compensated dating and blackmail was resolved already, given the title. Though to be fair, the title is "That Time I was Blackmailed" and not "I am being Blackmailed". It's good that Lin Luxi didn't try and get more money out of Tong Tong and I can totally get why she's nervous about getting close to her, but still - ghosting (not sure if that's the right phrase) her like that was definitely mean.
By the way, does anyone know how far ahead the raws are? I never could find the original Chinese webcomic.
