Chapter 28 – Come (2)
Chu Yin understood that she needed to do well in Mathematics before the school term ended.
“–But don’t be too stressed,” Teacher Wang said, “I’ve seen your answer sheet in the last midterm exam. It’s very good. I can’t find students that are better than you in your grade so you just need to study as usual. That’s it.”
Chu Yin nodded: “I understand. Thank you, teacher!”
“What are you thankful for? Come on, you can go back.”
The other math teachers in the office looked at her with envy, “Ms. Wang, is this the child that placed first in the grade?”
Teacher Wang said proudly, “Yes. She got a perfect score in both English and Math. And also ranked first in the comprehensive exam.”
The teachers were envious: “How clever! Do you think this child can win the prize in the contest?”
Teacher Wang didn’t want to be too high-profile. She waved her hand, “We’ll talk about it after the final exam. Moreover, Class 1 and Teacher Chen’s International Class also have many students who are good at math.”
Teacher Chen was an old man. He sat in the corner of the office, shaking his head while holding a teacup in his hand, “The best math student in my class doesn’t want to participate no matter how good he is!”
After Chu Yin came out of the office, she quickly poked the system: “Is it time to release the provincial competition task next?”
She wanted to see how the rewards were after completing these kinds of tasks on this level. Would she be given permission to change two sentences? Paragraphs? It would be cool.
Xueji: “Nonono~ host must complete both the task of ranking first in the whole grade first and placing first in the math exam~”
Chu Yin: “…Okay.”
She turned back to her class, pondering over the problems she would choose to do, but she met Lu Zhen again.
How high were the chances of meeting this dog man frequently in the corridor?
She remembered that Lu Zhen didn’t like to move much in her last life. He usually stayed in the classroom.
Chu Yin glanced at Lu Zhen’s lazy appearance while holding a cup of ice coffee in his hand, as if he had come out to buy this.
After seeing her, Lu Zhen’s lips curled, “Good morning, good student.”
Chu Yin nodded: “Hello.”
A few people passed by and couldn’t help looking sideways at them.
Before when Chu Yin was still wearing a mask, the whole school couldn’t accept them talking to each other. But when Lu Zhen and Chu Yin greeted each other now, they didn’t think there was anything wrong.
Quasi-school’s flower, Champion in the English Competition, Queen of Billiards…many labels were placed on Chu Yin, making her an existence that others wanted to talk to but dared not to.
What’s more…this picturesque scene was too eye-catching.
Chu Yin didn’t want to be in the same frame as Lu Zhen. Right after greeting him, she wanted to leave.
But Lu Zhen leaned forward, blocked her, and suddenly said, “Where’s the cookie?”
Chu Yin raised her eyes.
Lu Zhen lowered his head and looked at her with a smile in his voice: “I got your gift.”
Chu Yin immediately realized that it was probably Song Zhaolin’s big mouth that revealed what’s inside the gift box.
But what does Lu Zhen mean?
Was he testing her? What did he find?
Why did the original cookies become three keys?
But no matter how keen Lu Zhen was, he could not have guessed that such things were contrary to logic or even strange.
Chu Yin took a breath, looked up and explained, “I later thought the key was more meaningful, so I changed it.”
Lu Zhen slightly raised his eyebrows and looked at her with a smile: “What’s the meaning?”
Although he knew that she was indifferent, he couldn’t help but want to hear more from her. Even if she would say the same thing as what Song Zhaolin said, he was willing to listen.
Chu Yin’s face was tight as she spoke seriously, “The meaning is the three keys to life–accept, change, and leave.”
Lu Zhen: “…?”
“If you can’t accept it, you will make a change; if you can’t change, you will choose to leave,” said Chu Yin, “Do not be greedy or paranoid. Be a simple, happy, and satisfied person .”
Lu Zhen was going to speak but was stopped by her.
Chu Yin finally said sincerely, “Come on, classmate.”
With that, the master of chicken soup turned and left.
Not greedy, not paranoid, this was indeed Chu Yin’s good wishes to Lu Zhen.
Looking at Lu Zhen now, she could recall some of his appearance in her previous life.
Although Lu Zhen was domineering in high school, he was just a normal young master. It would make sense that the cold and arrogant young master would get angry after being rejected by her.
How did it come to cooking chicken soup?
After graduating from high school, Chu Yin hadn’t seen Lu Zhen for a while. Chu Yin didn’t find out the reason why he disappeared since she spent all her last life fighting to live.
With the amount of changes she made in this current life, will the dog man turn the same?
No matter what, Chu Yin wouldn’t allow herself to become a variable in Lu Zhen’s life.
In the evening, Chu Yin came home and noticed Chu Qiuqiu’s eyes on her.
This fake sister was observing her.
After the last time she was forced to stop talking, she behaved for a while. It was obvious that until now, she hadn’t given up her suspicion.
Chu Yin was silent. If the enemy won’t move, I also won’t move. Let’s see what she’s going to do.
During dinner, Father Chu said, “Uncle Chen will visit our residence in a while. His son is the same age as you. You can get to know him.”
Chu Qiuqiu knew that the Chen family was bigger than the Chu family, and was a good marriage partner. She was very positive and nodded with interest: “Okay, I’m looking forward to it.”
Chu Yin was silent.
Father Chu glanced at her with dissatisfaction. Chu Qiuqiu felt proud when she saw his father’s look towards Chu Yin.
Chu Yin never knew how to seize the opportunity. She only had studying in her mind.
Mother Chu didn’t want a fight to break out at the dinner table, so she quickly changed to a relaxed topic: “Do my daughters have good friends in school?”
Chu Qiuqiu glanced at Chu Yin and smiled obediently: “I have been quite acquainted with senior Zheng Yu. He is a classmate of my brother.”
Chu Shi frowned.
She didn’t know that after Zheng Yu couldn’t chase Xiao Yin, he would hook up with his other sister.
Father Chu was very satisfied: “The boy of the Zheng family? Not bad, not bad! I have also seen that child. He is a talent.”
Chu Yin: “…”
The atmosphere was lukewarm as only Chu Qiuqiu and their parents spoke during dinner.
After the dinner ended, Chu Qiuqiu walked around in the living room a few times, looking at Chu Yin who was sitting on the sofa drinking water.
It happened that today their parents were at home. She wanted to try her chance and expose Chu Yin’s abnormality!
After thinking about it, Chu Qiuqiu came up with a test method. Since she suddenly danced and couldn’t speak out of the blue, then she would use the opposite method to expose her.
Chu Qiuqiu went over, sat down beside Chu Yin, and said, “Sister, what you said about the Ebbinghaus curve last time…”
Chu Yin looked at her: “What?”
Chu Qiuqiu looked at her and didn’t speak.
Chu Yin looked puzzled: “What do you want to say?”
Chu Qiuqiu was still silent.
Chu Yin: …”
Chu Qiuqiu seemed to have spent time with her, staring at her in silence.
Chu Qiuqiu looked at her silently, as if she was exhausted by her.
There was a trace of familiarity with this situation, just like the situation in the international class that day.
Chu Yin changed her mind and suddenly realized that Chu Qiuqiu was fishing her?
Chuyin poked at the system: “Let me look at the script.”
【Chu Qiuqiu wanted to test whether the abnormal events that happened to her was because of Chu Yin. She decide to use the opposite behavior to induce her, so that she could explain to their parents that Chu Yin wasn’t normal!】
After reading it, Chu Yin became more calm and relaxed.
You want me to change it? Hey, I won’t change~
Chu Qiuqiu held back for a long time, opened her mouth, and found that she could still speak: “You–“
Chu Yin held the water cup and looked at her like she was a fool.
Chu Qiuqiu bit her teeth, stood up, and suddenly began to dance in the shape of a snake!
Chu Yin almost squirted the water in her mouth.
Chu Qiuqiu went all out.
She recreated the dancing scene of a wild and dominant snake as she looked at Chu Yin: Come on! Do the same thing as you did to me!
At this moment, a voice sounded, “Qiu Qiu, what are you doing?!”
Father Chu and Mother Chu stood at the door of the living room, looking at their adopted daughter in shock.
Chu Qiuqiu abruptly stopped.
At this time, Chu Yin slowly turned around with a dignified face.
“Sister seems to have a problem here.” Chu Yin pointed to her skull, “Hurry up and take her to the hospital.”
