Chapter 27: A New “God”
Translator: Henyee Translations Editor: Henyee Translations
Every student tilted their heads, confused. Aside from Ou Ye, Ms. Chen also said some students’ scores dropped. So could there still be any good news?
Even if the exam questions were difficult and even if Class One didn’t do well in the exam, it would still be difficult for them to overtake Class One, not to mention their class still had that transfer student…
Chen Lan looked around at the students, saying slowly, “This time, our class had a dark horse. I was wrong about her.”
She shook her head and sighed, looking in one direction.
Sheng Yang was reading a book, her eyes attentive.
Fang Duo pointed to herself, wondering: Could it be me?
However, she was only in ignorant bliss for less than three seconds when she heard Chen Lan say, “This student actually got full marks on the exam.”
“Puff!” Fang Duo was dumbfounded. It definitely wasn’t her. She couldn’t get a perfect score, not in this life.
“F*ck! Perfect score!”
“Who got a perfect score? Ou Ye has been ruled out.”
One student was so shocked that he couldn’t help saying the F word in front of Chen Lan.
Chen Lan smiled mysteriously. “And this time there was only one person with a perfect score in the whole grade—the dark horse in our class.”
Everyone gaped in shock as if there was a big walnut stuck in their throats, and they almost couldn’t breathe.
God Han… God Han was surpassed!
In their three years of high school, Han Jingyu had never lost first place on math exams. That was why he was called “God Han”!
Today, in this exciting moment, history was made!
A few students finally managed to recover from their shock and urged, “Ms. Chen, don’t keep us guessing. Just tell us who the dark horse is.”
Chen Lan picked up an exam paper with a big smile. “Let’s congratulate Sheng Yang! She got a perfect score, one hundred and fifty! She was number one in the entire grade this time!”
There was a dead silence, and time seemed to freeze at this moment.
The young faces that should’ve been lively were as stiff as wax figures.
Sheng Yang was about to pick up her exam paper, but since she was sitting in the middle inside, it was difficult to step out. Besides, the book on probability theory she was reading was so interesting that she didn’t want to put it down.
So she gently nudged Fang Duo, saying in a small voice, “Can you help me pick up my exam paper? Thank you.”
Although she lowered her voice, it still sounded as elegant as a harp, plucking people’s hearts.
“Huh?” Sometimes, students sitting in the middle would ask their deskmates to pick up their exam papers for them. Sometimes it was for convenience and sometimes, it was because they did so poorly on the exam that they were ashamed to pick up the exam themselves.
However, Sheng Yang got first place!
Fang Duo looked at Sheng Yang in surprise. Didn’t she want to relish in the other students’ envy and Ms. Chen’s admiration?
Sure enough, ordinary people couldn’t understand the gods.
Sheng Yang was still quickly scanning the book at an unbelievable speed. She didn’t seem to be joking at all.
Fang Duo had to stand up awkwardly and take a deep breath. Okay, she would enjoy the wonderful feeling of picking up an exam with a perfect score and getting first place today.
When Fang Duo picked up the exam, she treated it carefully as if she was holding a treasure in her hands and didn’t dare to fold any corners.
There were all red ticks on the paper, not a single cross. This was an image that had only appeared in her dreams.
Back in her seat, she carefully handed the paper to Sheng Yang, and Sheng Yang just glanced at it carelessly then casually folded it in half and put it aside.
Her exam paper without errors was of no value to her.
Watching this unfold, Fang Duo felt sorry for the exam paper, and at the same time, felt so envious that she wanted to cry. If she got a perfect score, her parents would carefully secure the exam paper like a cultural relic in a museum and would envelop it in plastic at least ten times.
The students hadn’t recovered from their shock, and more and more eyes fell on this calm and quiet girl, hot and eager.
In the past, there was only one “god” in the third grade at Yan City High School, which was God Han, but now that she had surpassed God Han, she was now the new “god”!
Their Class Seven had risen! They also had a person who could compete with Han Jinyu. Even if it was only in mathematics, they were satisfied.
“Okay, don’t get so excited!” Chen Lan’s eyes flickered, “Next, I’ll tell you the second good piece of news.”
“What? There’s a second piece of good news?”
“What is it?”
“Haha, is the news that I made huge progress and got a score over 140?”
“Yes, in your dreams.”
Chen Lan chuckled. “You finally got your wish. This time, our class’s average score in mathematics exceeded Class One by 0.2.”
“Yeah!” The students immediately cheered wildly, and cheers and laughter almost overturned the roof.
The students’ excitement was contagious, and a smile appeared at the corner of Chen Lan’s mouth. “This success is hard to come by.”
After hearing this, the students calmed down a bit. Their eyes couldn’t help turning in the same direction, and they had mixed feelings.
Had it not been for this new “god” who had raised the average score by a few points with her own power, how could they have achieved their long-cherished dream?
Alas, they had been complaining that she would drag them down on this exam. Now they just wanted to go back to that moment in time and slap themselves.
They were really stupid!
Li Mei happened to walk past Class Seven. Upon hearing the deafening noise, she rolled her eyes and said acidly, “Hmph, what’s the big deal? Isn’t it just a math exam?”
In the Class One classroom, Mr. Zheng was standing on the podium with a stack of papers when Li Mei suddenly walked in.
Mr. Zheng was stunned. “Ms. Li, this is a math class.”
“Mr. Zheng, I know. I’ll just say a few words,” Li Mei said domineeringly. With her hands folded on her chest, she stood on the podium crossly, looking extremely angry—even angrier than the math teacher.
The students whispered to each other.
Although Li Mei was called the “Destroy Nun” and barely smiled, she had never been as angry as she was today.
Their class still got first and second place and they had already done so well on the exam. What could she be dissatisfied with?
But this was normal. The last time they were almost surpassed by Class Seven in terms of average score, Li Mei scolded them crazily like a lunatic: “You should’ve exceeded Class 7’s average score by at least ten points! It’s as easy as pie! Ask yourself—did you try your best, huh? Did you bring your brains with you during the exam, huh?”
As easy as pie? Some students couldn’t help but complain secretly. Why don’t you write it yourself?
Li Mei was a Chinese teacher; her mathematics sucked. The last time Mr. Zheng talked to her about a very simple math problem, she didn’t even understand it.
“How are you studying mathematics? Aren’t you embarrassed to get such low scores? Shame on you!” Li Mei poked her own face hard, looking indignant, and her mean, high-cheekboned face looked even more unpleasing to the eye.
Mr. Zheng wanted to stop her but she had gradually become furious.
“This time, I’m going to criticize a few people whose scores dropped drastically.” Li Mei took out another piece of paper. She had never cared about her students’ self-esteem.
However, this was a math class. Even if she was the class teacher, this was beyond her authority.
Below the podium, several students suddenly became nervous.
Lou Shu looked at her deskmate, Sheng Yue, enviously. “Sheng Yue, it’s awesome that you got a full score. Li Mei’s fire definitely won’t touch you. I must’ve failed the exam. Alas, what should I do?”
“I can help you with math.” Sheng Yue smiled elegantly, with a bit of arrogance hidden in the corners of her eyes.
“Oh, Yueyue, you’re so kind!” Lou Shu secretly grabbed Shengyue’s arm, grateful and happy.
Although Yueyue and Brother Yuxi weren’t as close as they were before, they were cousins anyway, not to mention that she had good grades and could be of great help to her.
