Rebirth to a Military Marriage: Good Morning Chief
204 The Arrogant ‘Puppy Love’
Zhou Lei's grades paled in comparison to these students.
As the saying goes, it's better to be the head of a dog than the tail of a lion. Hence, Zhou Lei opted for Ping Cheng High School. Now that he was schoolmates with Qiao Nan again, and if they belonged to the same class, he would feel stressed as he would again be 'crushed' and 'stimulated' every day by Qiao Nan's grades.
Hence, it was great that they were in the same school but not in the same class. As he knew about Qiao Nan's 'perverted' academic performance, he felt more relieved that they were not going to be classmates again.
"Uh…" Qiao Nan screened through the list to see who would be in her class. She did not know whether to laugh or cry when she saw one of the names.
"What's wrong?" Zhou Lei walked beside Qiao Nan curiously. He was also stunned when he saw the name list of the students in her class and burst into laughter. He was laughing so hard that some of the passerby, and even the students in the classroom, came out to find out what was happening. "Aye, I made the right choice by coming to Ping Cheng High School. I'll be missing the fun if I don't come today. It's damn funny."
Zhao Yu, who came up behind them with a gloomy face, heard Zhou Lei and already guessed what the matter was. Her tears welled up. She nearly threw her school bag to make a stand that she didn't want to continue with her studies anymore!
The high schools were of different standards. Similarly, there was also a difference between the classes within the same school.
Class one of Ping Cheng High School was also called the top class. As the name implied, everyone knew what that meant.
Zhao Yu's family was wealthy and willing to spend money to send her to The High School Affiliated to Renmin University of China. Thus, although Zhao Yu opted for the second choice and attended Ping Cheng High School, she would be in the best class.
Fortunately, Zhao Yu's grades were not too bad. Hence, the Zhao family managed to get Zhao Yu into class one with minimal effort.
When Zhao Yu saw Qiao Nan today, she had a premonition. Upon hearing Zhou Lei's laughter, Zhao Yu's eyes were red. She was staring like a rabbit and shivering all over with anger.
Undoubtedly, she was also in class one. Since Qiao Nan was willing to study at Ping Cheng High School, there was no reason that she would not be allocated to class one.
Zhao Yu realized that all her efforts were in vain. She had done so much to avoid Qiao Nan, but unexpectedly, not only did she not get away from Qiao Nan but also ended up in the same class as her. Facing this reality, Zhao Yu wanted to kneel down and question God what hideous things had she committed in her previous life such that she had to be tortured again by Qiao Nan for another three years.
Clearly, the semester had not begun, but Zhao Yu already predicted that she would be living a life in purgatory, a life full of suffering that she did not wish to live anymore.
"Qiao Nan, let's go quickly. When I look at Zhao Yu, why do I feel that she was full of desperation and darkness?" Zhou Lei rubbed both his arms. He could not help pitying Zhao Yu as his heart secretly 'cried' for her.
Toward Qiao Nan, both Zhao Yu and he had some similarities in their thinking.
Hence, Zhou Lei could understand exactly how crumbled Zhao Yu felt at this point in time. However, it was just too bad for Zhao Yu. Furthermore, he did not consider Zhao Yu as his friend. Therefore, he could only pray that she would not be tortured too badly by Qiao Nan.
"Qiao Nan, I'll go ahead to register and pay the tuition fees."
"Let's do it together." In the first semester, everyone would go to the administration office to pay tuition fees. Qiao Nan was also going to the same place as Zhou Lei.
Zhao Yu was left alone in peace. Qiao Nan and Zhou Lei paid their tuition fees first and then found their respective classrooms according to the signboards.
"Xiao Qiao, you're here." Qiao Nan heard Zhu Baoguo's booming voice before she could step into the classroom.
Because of Zhu Baoguo's shout, more than twenty classmates in the classroom turned their eyes to Qiao Nan at the same time. They were either full of curiosity, jealousy, or vigilance.
Besides an 'idiot' like Zhu Baoguo, which student in the top class did not have any trait of competitiveness?
The top scholar of the middle school examination in the province—Qiao Nan. Who had not heard of this name before?
In fact, some heard that the Ping Cheng TV Station had wanted to interview Qiao Nan but was turned down by Qiao Nan and the school.
In fact, this would be a good opportunity to gain publicity for the school. In normal times, the school would try their best to facilitate this. But strangely, Qiao Nan's junior high school did not do so and Ping Cheng High School acquiesced quietly.
Many had the feeling that the school seemed to have taken into consideration Qiao Nan's feelings and gave up such a great opportunity to make a big splash in the news.
The more the school valued Qiao Nan, the more the other outstanding students who entered this school felt that way.
They finally saw the legendary Qiao Nan today. How could these students not have any reaction?
When the guys saw Qiao Nan, they felt more relaxed. But when the ladies saw her, they could not help but look at her harshly.
"What are you looking at? Do you want to be beaten up?" Zhu Baoguo was very sensitive to these glances. His two eyes widened like a tiger baring its fangs, full of deterrence. "I'm warning everyone in this class. Don't provoke anyone without first finding out who that person is. Otherwise, don't blame me for being unruly with my fists. If you're really clueless, go and find out who I, Zhu Baoguo, am. In Ping Cheng, I can easily make you go home lying down simply by moving my finger!"
After Zhao Yu, Zhu Baoguo did not dare to underestimate his classmates. Although they were a bunch of kids, they were better than one another when it came to scheming. The Wang Yang in his family was the best example.
Sensing that the situation was not right, Zhu Baoguo simply threatened them outright.
Because of Zhu Baoguo, the whole classroom was silent. Most of them were sheltered and docile kids. Of course, they were frightened by Zhu Baoguo's behavior. At the same time, they formed a psychological barrier, a 'thick wall', against Qiao Nan, forbidding her from entering their territories.
Qiao Nan did not know whether to laugh or cry. It was a good thing that she only wanted to concentrate well on her studies and was not in the mood to make friends.
Otherwise, with Zhu Baoguo's stirring, she would definitely be isolated in the class. She might even be bullied.
"Xiao Qiao, sit here." Following similar arrangements as in the past, Zhu Baoguo occupied two seats for Qiao Nan and himself. Hence, he asked Qiao Nan to come over and sit down.
Qiao Nan did not decline Zhu Baoguo's 'good intention'. She sat beside Zhu Baoguo, who was a member of the opposite gender, in an unrestrained manner. This was different from the usual way the other men and women interacted with one another.
The extraordinary and close relationship between Qiao Nan and Zhu Baoguo attracted the curiosity and contempt of many people. At this time, there was already a concept called 'Puppy Love'.
"What's with the two of them?"
"Isn't she just a middle school examination scholar? This attitude is too arrogant."
"There's no need to be anxious. See how pleased they can get when the teacher comes."
When the form teacher, Liu Neng, came, there was instant silence in the classroom. Most people looked as if they were waiting to watch a good show.
