Chapter 606: Truth or Dare- Part 1
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
The seven-school joint examination lasted two days.
Due to the order of the seats in the examination hall, the invigilators were always consistent and followed the college entrance examination model. Therefore, Qian Wenrui had the honor of invigilating Class 1 once.
After collecting the papers in the afternoon, Qian Wenrui followed Teacher Gao and the others and walked out of the school.
Teacher Gao was holding a stack of No. 1 High School’s papers.
Unlike ordinary exams, the papers of the joint examination needed to be scanned by a machine and mixed into the computer so that the teachers could go and mark the papers on the spot.
“Teacher Qian, you worked in No. 1 High School for so many years but you just changed jobs. Does the school really not feel sorry for you?”
Elder Gao walked beside Qian Wenrui and weighed the papers in his hand. He had always been a gossip. “If this was our school, even if we expelled all the teachers and students of the inferior class, we wouldn’t let an excellent teacher like you leave and decrease the entrance rate after the college entrance examination!”
Although Teacher Gao’s words were gossipy and betrayed the hint of schadenfreude hidden in his heart, he didn’t show it on his face.
As the old saying goes, one shouldn’t hit a smiling person when they extend their hand. Qian Wenrui lifted the corner of her mouth and said vaguely, “Everyone has their own aspirations.”
“That’s true. But I heard that Fu Zhi was the first to hand in her paper in Class 1 this afternoon. The head of our school’s mathematics team personally saw the math problems she solved. That accuracy and speed… Sigh, why isn’t this student in our school?”
While Teacher Gao had supervised Fu Zhi’s Chinese test today, he still didn’t understand. Based on what Qian Wenrui had said, Fu Zhi wasn’t a good girl. She wasn’t a smart girl either.
It wasn’t until the head of the school had finished talking to her in the afternoon that his opinion had changed.
He couldn’t help but blame Qian Wenrui. “If Fu Zhi had been in your class in the past, you wouldn’t have been stupid enough to kick her out of the school. Then, our school would have been famous long ago. The top scorer of this seven-school joint examination would have been a student of our school!”
Qian Wenrui: “…”
She had been attacked by Teacher Gao for no reason. Her heart was burning with anger. ‘If she wanted to go to your school, given your snobbish appearance, you would have kicked her out of your class too!’
However, she couldn’t say that, so she carried on, making her final attempt to win the other teacher’s respect. “She’s not as simple as you think. Besides, she’s very lazy and her answers are simple. She won’t be the top scorer of this joint examination, and Class 21’s results won’t be good either. Gu Yuan doesn’t have to worry about imaginary scenarios all the time!”
Teacher Gao thought about it and felt that it was true.
No. 1 High School had suffered a great loss this time, and this was a great fortune.
She admired the person in front of her, so why should she be blinded by Fu Zhi?
* * * * *
The afternoon after the exam, the school asked the students to move their desks and chairs back to their original place and stay in the class to self-study and review their studies over the past half a month.
Fu Zhi had been in Class 1 for half a month and was teaching the other students how to study. Before the self-study class, she asked Ma Mingquan for leave to go out to dinner.
When Song Fang and the rest found out about this, they didn’t even think about it. They followed her example and made a fuss about going out to celebrate with Fu Zhi.
After all, she was his student. Ma Mingquan had always been a good teacher known for his love and peaceful nature.
Anyway, the exams had already ended. Although they were worried about whether the students had done well or not, it would be useless to retake the exams and check all the answers. At most, he would just apologize to Class 1 as the class representative if they lost.
After thinking things through, Ma Mingquan told a few of the students in the class, “Alright, alright, stop retaking the exam. It’s too late now. There’s no point in overthinking. It’s a holiday. I’ll give you all the day off! You guys can go out and get together. It’s fine if you don’t get first place. It’s not the first time we don’t win anyway!”
The students in the class who were still trying to answer the questions raised their heads.
Song Fang, who had walked to the door, patted Ma Mingquan on the shoulder. He was in a particularly good mood because he had done well in the exams and had gotten everything right. The high-intensity training that Fu Zhi had given him had made him feel radiant, and he had never been more superior than he was at this moment.
“Teacher Ma, don’t be pessimistic. This time, I memorized the answers by using cards!”
Ma Mingquan scratched his head and said, looking embarrassed, “This is the seven-school joint examination. The machine will mix up the order of the examination papers. The probability of the teachers of our school grading the papers of our students is very low. If you copied the answers, the teachers of the other schools will not give you any sympathy points.”
Song Fang: “…”
“I think you don’t understand what I meant.” Song Fang and Wang Yu looked at each other seriously. He then continued. “Teacher Ma, what I meant is that not only did I fill in the answers, but the answers I wrote were exactly the same as the answers Sister Zhi wrote! How about that, Teacher Ma? I’m successful now. Are you touched?”
Ma Mingquan, who didn’t dare move at all, smiled stiffly.
His answers were exactly the same as Fu Zhi’s…
Even Wang Yu, who had packed up his school bag and was planning to go out with Fu Zhi and Fatty, said, “Teacher Ma, don’t worry. This time, not only are Song Fang and Sister Zhi’s answers exactly the same, but the answers we wrote are almost the same as Sister Zhi’s!
“I compared them just now, and I only found one big answer that was different from Sister Zhi’s. The rest are almost all the same!
“It’s perfect, Teacher Ma. This time, our class is really going to amaze everyone!
“Teacher Ma, let’s go out to have fun. If you don’t want to go, then pack up and go home!”
The students of Class 21 were talking noisily as they walked out the door.
Fu Zhi looked at Ma Mingquan, whose smile was gradually disappearing.
She felt that Ma Mingquan seemed to have misunderstood something.
She opened her mouth, wanting to explain, but was pushed by Song Fang and the others behind her. She kept walking out, so she didn’t have any time to say anything.
Ma Mingquan, who was petrified, was left standing at the door for a long time until an anxious voice came from behind him.
“Hey, Teacher Ma, where’s Fu Zhi? Call her. I need to see her.”
Only then did Ma Mingquan come back to his senses. He turned his head and saw Director Liu standing at the door of Class 21.
Ma Mingquan moved his lips. “She’s not here.”
“Not here?” Director Liu looked at Class 21 and felt anxious. “No, she just finished the exam. Where are the people in your class that I asked to retake the exam?”
“They went to eat.”
“It’s still early in the afternoon. How is it time to eat already?”
“Won’t they come for the college entrance exam in June anyway?” Ma Mingquan subconsciously retorted. Then, he sighed. “You have to understand. They went to have their last dinner.”
Director Liu was speechless.
“What do you mean?”
Ma Mingquan scratched his head and squatted on the ground in a somewhat dejected manner. He seemed to have given up on himself. “Student Fu Zhi is too good indeed! I’ve never met such a good student who’s willing to give up getting full marks and avoid all the correct answers just to get first place with the other students in the class. We’ll step back together!”
Director Liu: “???”
At that moment, Director Liu was humbled. He wasn’t sure and didn’t dare believe this. He asked, “What, what do you mean by that?”
Ma Mingquan told him that Song Fang and the others had chosen the same answers as Fu Zhi.
Since the beginning of the school year, as long as Fu Zhi had been willing to take an exam, her score in each subject had been almost a full score.
What about Song Fang and the others?
Even after more than half a month of surprise tests, their foundation was still the same. Without a solid foundation, how could they build a high-rise building?
Therefore, there was no need to think about it.
Fu Zhi had deliberately chosen the wrong answers to keep up with Class 21!
Ma Mingquan and Director Liu were good friends who had known each other for many years.
After Ma Mingquan said this, Director Liu’s eyes instantly became lifeless. He turned around and left.
Ma Mingquan was right behind him. He had heard his hurried footsteps and he shouted, “Director Liu, where are you going?”
“I’m going to kill Fu Zhi and perish with her!”

Meanwhile, after the students of Class 1 left the school, they were cheerful as wild horses without reins.
They were chattering excitedly on the way. They had known the content of today’s exam and had answered correctly.
Class 1 had never been so proud before.
At that moment, while everyone was looking forward to the exam results being released, Song Fang said, “Sister Zhi, I booked a karaoke lounge on the shopping street. Let’s take a taxi there. What do you think?”
Fu Zhi was wearing a blue school uniform and a baseball cap. Her hand was on the fence by the roadside. She lazily looked at her phone and smiled.
Song Fang and the others were stunned for a few seconds. When they came back to their senses, their faces were a little hot.
The young girl looked up and said in a pleasant voice, “Sure.”
There was a big number of students in Class 1. Song Fang opened the taxi app on his phone and quickly booked a taxi online.
Because it was not school time, there were very few cabs outside No. 1 High School.
The one he booked drove some of the students away.
In the end, only Fu Zhi, Ye Jiu, and a dozen other students were left.
“Look! It shows that the nearest taxi is still more than twenty minutes away from us.”
Song Fang felt that it was a bit of a waste of time, but there was no way he would not wait.
As he was feeling vexed, he heard the sound of wheels grinding on the ground.
From afar, they saw a silver Maserati stop outside the school gate.
“Oh my God! Oh my God!” Wang Yu’s eyes were wide open, as he thought that this luxury car was the taxi that Song Fang had booked online. “Even the children of rich families are out looking for customers?”
“Bah! Watch your mouth!” Fatty slapped him. “I’m going to give you a taste of the afterlife! Do you think you’re someone important?”
While the two of them were arguing, Song Fang frowned and silently opened his phone app.
He remembered that he had asked for an ordinary minivan, not a Maserati!
Coincidentally, the place where the Maserati was parked was right beside them.
Before Song Fang could figure it out, the passenger window was slowly rolled down.
Song Fang subconsciously looked over.
The first thing he saw was a slender, fair hand with an expensive watch.
Then, as a mellow voice spoke, someone came out of the car.
The man in the driver’s seat slightly bent down and looked at the girl outside the car. He smiled. “Where are you going?”
Fu Zhi put her phone into her pocket and lazily reported the name of her destination.
“Going karaoke with your classmates?”
After she said that, the driver’s door was pulled open.
Song Fang, who didn’t know what was going on, finally saw the man’s face clearly.
