Her Little Dimples - Chapter 14: Dressed Like This
Xu You didn’t understand his dirty words and tried to get up. But when she was doing so, he raised his knee and almost tripped her again.
She landed her hands on the ground and tried to balance herself.
Her cheeks were red from anger and she half-knelt on the concrete floor and stared at him.
The person lying on the ground was not in a hurry to get up. He slowly propped up half his body and looked at her.
The evening breeze blew across his face, and his mood suddenly became much better.
“What, you don’t seem to be very happy with the person who just saved you?” He looked up and smiled.
Xu You was still angry and kicked him subconsciously, “What kind of person are you?”
Only after kicking him did she realize…
A brief silence later.
Seeing that he didn’t say anything, she felt a little guilty. She whispered, “Does it…hurt?”
Xie Ci smiled and replied, “Yes.”
“Yeah,” Xie Ci didn’t seem to be serious at all and said lazily, “I didn’t know you liked to use school violence on your classmates.”
“That’s because you asked for it.”
Xu You looked at him with her big black eyes and finally sighed in her head. Then she continued, “It’s because you always bully me.”
Her pure tone made the word ‘bully’ sound very ambiguous.
The sky in the distance was dyed into a warm hazy yellow, and there was a bit of summer floral fragrance in the air.
Xie Ci’s mouth moved as he felt an itching feeling in his heart, “I guess you haven’t seen what real ‘bullying’ is?”
After he finished, he sighed and raised his head slightly, “Dressed like this, are you trying to seduce me?”
Xu You was taken aback for a moment, and then realized afterward, following his line of sight, she suddenly lowered her head.
Her short-sleeved neckline was already slightly big for her, and just then, it slipped a little…
On the round and white shoulders, there is a thin blue line from her underclothing.
“You, you pervert!” Xu You’s brain went blank.
She was ashamed and angry. She quickly got up to cover her shoulders and ran away.
Looking at her running back, Xie Ci smiled.
It felt sweet.
The next day was a Thursday. After the third class in the morning, the atmosphere in the classroom was abnormally dull.
Not only was it because the next class was math class, which was the homeroom teacher’s call.
But it was also because everyone had to change seats.
There were already many students in the class who couldn’t restrain their anxiety and ran to the office to secretly check their monthly exam results.
Zheng Xiaolin, who sat in front of Xu You, was one of them.
The seat in front of her was empty and everyone around was sleeping.
Only Xu You was sitting there organizing her notes while nibbling on an apple.
Ten minutes between classes soon passed and before the bell rang, the classmates who went to check their grades came back one after another.
They were like triumphant heroes, as when they entered the classroom, other students immediately clustered around them to ask questions.
“Did you see my grades?”
“What place did you get?”
“Did you see it? Did you see it?”
“How did it go? Did you check for me? How many points did I get?!”
Zheng Xiaolin went back to her seat panting. Seeing her good mood, it seemed that she probably got a good grade.
With a bright smile on her face, she was about to turn around to say something, but the homeroom teacher had already walked in.
Xu You looked up and put away the half-eaten apple.
She pushed the person sleeping beside her with a small gesture and whispered, “Wake up, the teacher’s here.”
Xu Huiru walked to the podium and looked around the classroom, holding a report card in her hand.
She cleared her throat, and then said, “Be quiet, I have something to tell you all today.”
Everyone immediately became silent.
Even the sound of a needle falling could be heard.
“The results of this month’s exam came out,” she said as she looked at the list in her hand, “I know that some of you don’t care about the results, but I’d like to compliment some students today. This month, seven of our students got in the top 100 of the grade.”
As soon as she finished, there was a loud round of applause.
There were nearly thirty classes in the grade, which included several honors classes and rocket classes.1Rocket classes were for top students who basically grind classes all day. The name comes from rocket boosting their grades even higher.
A normal class would usually have two or three students in the top 100, and the teacher for that class would already feel very proud.
Unexpectedly, Class 9, one of the most misbehaved classes, got such a good result on the first monthly exam.
The students in the class listened without paying much attention and the group in the back were even more bored.
Song Yifan spun the pen in his hand boringly and chatted to Xie Ci, “A Ci, let’s dip gym class this afternoon.”
“Let’s go play billiards, it’s been a long time.”
“No,” he replied with a flat voice.
Song Yifan put his arms around Xie Ci’s shoulders and leaned closer, “Brother Ci, don’t tell me you want to stay in class.”
Song Yifan ignored him and turned to Xu Xiaocheng, who was across the aisle, “Brother Cheng, are you going this afternoon?”
Xu Xiaocheng was playing on his phone and wanted to ignore him. He quickly replied, “Played too much with my girlfriend last night, don’t have the energy today.”
“Bro…” Song Yifan’s lips pouted and was about to continue.
Xu Huiru happened to look over and she yelled, “Song Yifan, you’re still speaking in class? Look at what your score is on this exam!”
Being called out, Song Yifan shrugged his shoulders and showed a bitter expression, “Teacher, you can’t force me to not speak, just because I got a bad grade.”
A few students started to laugh.
Xu Huiru glared at him, “One of the lowest scores in the grade and you’re still so happy.”
Song Yifan touched his nose.
The voice on the podium continued.
“Can’t you learn more from the classmate sitting in front of you? You two learn in the same place, yet you get last place, and she got first in the grade!”
Xu You, who was named, stopped writing.
There were numerous gasps in the class.
Many people turned their heads in disbelief and looked at the new classmates sitting in the back row.
Their looks were all different.
Holy shit… The new transfer student beat the top student of the grade Xu Xingchun on the first exam??
Do all the Xu students have a natural talent in learning…?
You know, the reason why Class 9 was so popular, in addition to the fact that they had a bunch of rich students, was also because the smartest student in the grade was in this class.
Xu Xingchun’s ranking has almost never been beaten before. Since middle school, he has almost always been first.
Many people have also wondered why he didn’t go to the Rocket Class and insisted on staying in Class 9.
Unexpectedly, this time, he got passed by the new student.
“I’ll read the names of these seven people now, all the others can go check for themselves after I give them to the class representative.”
The discussion in the class grew louder, and Xu Huiru motioned them to be quiet. After a pause, she continued:
“Xu You, first in the class, first in the grade. Total score 678.”
“Xu Xingchun, second in the class, second in the grade. Total score 677.”
“Chen Chunlin, third in the class, 32 in the grade. Total score 645.”
“Xiang Fei, fourth in the class, 67 in the grade. Total score 633.”
The air conditioner in the classroom was running and blowing out cold air.
Xu You felt a little sick and coughed a few times. But she continued to write her homework.
She didn’t have any expressions on her face, as if she didn’t get first place in the exam or she was used to it already.
After calculating the last question in the workbook, Xu You stopped writing.
She sniffed her nose and looked for some napkins.
She accidentally hit the table and the pen rolled from the table to the ground.
Xu You turned around and bent over to pick up the pen.
When she looked up, she met Xie Ci’s eyes.
He was chewing gum in his mouth.
Both of them were taken aback.
On the podium, Xu Huiru spoke:
“Clean everything up before you leave. After gym class, we’ll have new seats.”
