Chapter 21: Aroused Public Indignation
Translator: Henyee Translations Editor: Henyee Translations
Sheng Yang flipped through the notebook. She turned the pages very quickly, almost reading ten lines in one glance. In only a short while, she had finished reading the notebook and returned it to Ou Yeh intact. “Thank you for your kindness. There isn’t anything I don’t understand for the time being.”
Ou Ye was stunned, gaping in surprise.
The other students were also dumbfounded, at a loss for what to say.
Even Fang Duo, her firm supporter, had no explanation.
Seeing that Sheng Yang seemed to arouse public indignation, Fang Duo hurriedly said, “Ah, math is so hard. How could she understand your thick notebook? Maybe her previous school didn’t use answer sheets in their exams and she doesn’t know how to use them. Let me show her how to solve math problems and use answer sheets. Besides, compared to you, I’m closer to her level. Maybe my problem-solving strategies would be easier for her to understand!”
Whatever, beauty deserves justice.
To hurt a beauty is equivalent to wounding my heart!
I must defend Sheng Yang!
Although the students were still angry, they couldn’t do anything about it. If Sheng Yang didn’t want to learn, they couldn’t force her.
However, they all complained about this new classmate in their hearts. She seemed a poor fit for this class, and she simply had no sense of honor.
“Okay.” Ou Ye was a little bit frustrated. His enthusiasm was quenched by cold water, but fortunately, he was easygoing and soon forgot about this matter.
The test began and Chen Lan presided over it. It took Sheng Yang less than an hour to finish all the questions. After handing in her paper, she stood by the railing outside, took out the English book she hadn’t finished reading from her schoolbag, and continued to read it.
The students were disappointed at her actions, but if she didn’t want to make progress, they couldn’t help her.
Sitting at the podium with nothing to do, Chen Lan casually glanced at the exam submitted by the new student. The first question, the second question, the third question… Huh? She realized that she couldn’t stop.
No, no. Chen Lan suppressed her curiosity, but her eyes uncontrollably glanced at this exam from time to time.
After the exam, everyone was whining.
“Today’s questions were so hard; I couldn’t even finish them. I didn’t do as well this time. What should I do?”
“Oh, no! Our average score won’t beat Class One this time.”
“Maybe Class One won’t do well either?”
“How’s it possible? Han Jingyu and Sheng Yue even qualified to attend the Mathematical Olympiad! How could they not do well on this exam?”
“Forget it; we didn’t have much hope of beating them in the first place,” the student said halfway and stopped abruptly.
Then everyone looked at Sheng Yang.
Fang Duo glared crossly at the student who started this then looked at Sheng Yang. “Sheng Yang, would you like to check your answers with us?”
She tried to draw Sheng Yang into the group with an easy topic to prevent her from being isolated by their classmates.
Sheng Yang raised her head from her books, her voice indifferent. “No need.”
Every time she wrote an exam, she was very accurate in estimating her scores, so she didn’t need to bother herself with such a useless task.
The Sheng family home.
Sheng You went to pick up Sheng Yang, so only Kang Weizhen and Sheng Yuxi were at home.
Kang Weizhen knew Sheng Yang had written an exam today, so she asked Sheng Yuxi the day before to come home and tutor Yangyang.
Sheng Yuxi was sitting idly on the sofa, eating biscuits and watching TV.
Kang Weizhen stared at him. “I told you to tutor your sister in math yesterday. How did it go?”
“I didn’t.” Sheng Yuxi’s eyes didn’t leave the TV screen.
