Listen to Me
The afternoon air was hot, and Lu Zhi's black hair was slightly damp.
He glanced at Ning Zhen, then withdrew his gaze lightly.
Chen Dongshu clicked his tongue, "The new classmate is very sick.
Yet Brother Zhi still bullies her.
She's so pitiful."
Before Lu Zhi said a word, Lin Zichuan hit Chen Dongshu on the head, "Stupid.
You don't have eyes.
She's clearly choking."
The group of delinquent teenagers went to the opposite restaurant to order food.
The air conditioner in the restaurant was on, and the air was cool.
Everyone knew Lu Zhi was very picky with his food, so they handed him the menu, "Brother Zhi, what do you want to eat"
Lu Zhi handed the menu to Lin Zichuan, who was next to him, and said, "I'll go out."
Outside the restaurant, he experienced another heat wave.
Lu Zhi put one hand in his trouser pocket.
His hair was scattered on his forehead.
His casual appearance was inexplicably attractive, and students passing by looked at him secretly.
Without being distracted, he went to the small supermarket next door.
In the wonton shop, Tong Jia patted Ning Zhen's back.
"Zhen Zhen, are you okay"
Ning Zhen shook her head.
She had just coughed.
Her throat was itchy, and her eyes were watery.
The corners of her eyes were slightly red, and there was a layer of sweat on her back.
Suddenly a bottle of ice water was placed on the table.
Ning Zhen subconsciously raised her head and met Lu Zhi's dark eyes.
Seeing her stunned look, Lu Zhi felt a bit indolent.
There were still tears in her eyes.
He raised the corner of his mouth.
Ning Zhen's head went blank, and she lowered her head subconsciously.
"New classmate, this is for you." He said slowly, "Repayment for helping me move books."
Ning Zhen didn't dare to refuse.
She understood his character.
Once he insisted on giving something, even if she didn't want it, he would find a way to stuff it.
She stretched out her hand and held the ice water in her hand.
The coldness spread to her palm.
Ning Zhen thanked him with her voice sounding like an ant's, "Thank you."
Lu Zhi glanced at the tips of her red ears and turned away.
Pushing open the restaurant door, the group of people winked at Lu Zhi.
A subtle look.
Without needing to be urged, Chen Dongshu actively questioned, "Brother Zhi, do you fancy that little sister"
Lu Zhi glanced at him lightly, and his thin lips lifted slightly.
"Fancy your **ing balls."
Don't even know what it looks like.
Someone laughed, and like a signal, everyone laughed.
Xiao Feng laughed until his shoulders were shaking.
"Haven't you heard of this saying Brother Zhi is the famous aloof emperor of the Third High School."
Someone understood it and said, "Brother Zhi is the most ostentatious flower.
He doesn't have to do anything and all the butterflies come flocking."
Even Yu Shanshan, his ex-girlfriend, left her pride and chased after Lu Zhi for half a month before he agreed to date her.
Too bad she harmed herself.
"Brother Zhi is as cold as a snowy mountain top.
I don't believe that he would like a girl who has only been here for a short time." Xiao Feng said.
Chen Dongshu almost grabbed Xiao Feng by the neck to shake him back and forth.
"Fuck! You were the one who talked the most convincingly just now!" He said that Lu Zhi must have taken a fancy to that little sister, but he changed his mind in a blink of an eye, causing him (Chen Dongshu) to be scolded.
Just now, when Lu Zhi walked out of the restaurant and took a bottle of ice water to the wonton shop.
Chen Dongshu had a ghostly expression on his face, and he was uncertain.
"Brother Zhi had a guilty conscience and went to apologize to others"
"Brother Zhi has such a thing as a conscience"
Xiao Feng raised his eyebrows.
" Brother Zhi must have taken a fancy to someone.
When have you seen him take the initiative"
Lin Zichuan frowned.
"It's just sending water."
The group of people who were discussing heatedly fell silent when Lu Zhi opened the door and came in.
Lu Zhi ignored them.
With a cigarette between his fingertips, no one could see his expression through the white smoke.
Before class in the afternoon, Ning Zhen went to the logistics department to pick up two sets of school uniforms and a student handbook.
The school uniform was in 2 sets, one blue and the other white, and the pants were all black.
She joined the school midway, and the only uniforms available were too big.
She opened the collar to check the size.
It was for 170, and she was only 163 in height in her second year of high school.
No wonder Song Baoyun asked her to take it back and adjust it.
Ning Zhen went to the toilet to change her clothes.
The pants were too long, so she rolled them up twice, revealing her fair ankles.
The girl in the mirror was wearing a sky blue mask.
Her bangs were draped over her forehead, her ponytail was tied behind her head, and her almond eyes were full of vigor.
The large school uniform made her look petite and thin.
Ning Zhen smiled.
Finally, feeling like she had returned to the second year of high school.
She didn't go home at noon and went to the classroom for self-study.
No one was in the classroom, and the students either returned to the dormitory or had already gone home.
Ning Zhen picked up the student handbook on the side and flipped through it.
Her eyes happened to fall on the fourth line of the eighth page.
The four big characters, "Don't fall in love early," were particularly eye-catching.
She looked a little stunned.
She had been very obedient since she was a child.
In her previous life, before she met Lu Zhi, she had never been late even once.
All the violations and rebellions of youth come from that one person.
It was the second year of high school, and classes were divided into liberal arts and sciences.
Ning Zhen chose sciences.
Third High School was famous for emphasizing science but not literature.
Classes 1 to 10 were all science classes, and classes 11 to 13 were liberal arts.
There are only 13 classes, and the science class accounts for 10/13.
Ning Zhen touched the mask on her face, feeling a little worried.
Alas, wearing it all the time is not a solution.
She has to find other ways as soon as possible.
After this semester, there will be a unified examination for the third year of high school, through which she will be assigned to classes according to her grades.
She will try her best to pass the test, so she will not be in the same class as Lu Zhi.
Two or three cicadas chirped outside the window as she memorized chemical equations on the scratch paper.
The v-shaped collar lightly stuck to her fair collarbone.
The black water-based pen was used slowly for calculating on the paper.
After three years of stagnant memory, it was a little difficult for her to regain everything.
She had never been a gifted student and could only work harder than others.
After memorizing it a few times, she finally got the hang of it.
She opened the chemistry study booklet and tried to do some questions.
"Zn...Cu, 64" She frowned, a little unsure, and reached out to flip through the chemistry book.
Suddenly she saw a person standing beside her.
"Ah...." Ning Zhen was taken aback.
Lu Zhi raised his eyebrows and flipped through the student handbook in his hand.
She didn't know when he had taken it.
He suddenly smiled.
"New classmate, you love studying so much ah~."
His 'ah' was deliberately prolonged, imitating her soft exclaim just now.
When Ning Zhen heard it, she couldn't stand the teasing, and her face turned red.
Fortunately, the mask covered it, so he couldn't see it.
"Good grades in chemistry" Lu Zhi put the student handbook back on Ning Zhen's desk, leaned against the podium, and tilted his head to look at her.
"No, not good."
He snorted inexplicably, clasping his fingers on the desk.
Amidst the chuckles, Ning Zhen was uncomfortably in her seat like a primary school student waiting to be punished.
"In chemistry class, as soon as Bald Li asks a question, you raise your hand to answer, do you hear"
Ning Zhen raised her head suddenly and bit her lip.
With half a smile in his eyes, he repeated slowly, "Did you hear me"
She summoned the courage to ask, "Why should I answer the question" She was not a primary school student, so raising her hand to answer would be embarrassing.
Or answer every question...
He didn't think that he was hateful at all.
"Because if you don't answer, he will smack me.
Classmates should help each other, right"
Ning Zhen retorted in a low voice, "Then what if I don't know the answer"
Lu Zhi almost laughed.
How could there be such a stupid new classmate
"Well...then pray for your good fortune."
He walked back to the second-to-the-last row and casually threatened, "New classmate, I have a bad temper, you should listen to me."
Ning Zhen took a deep breath and didn't look back.
She continued to do the questions while suppressing her despairing thoughts.
The only sound in the classroom was the rubbing of pen and paper, occasionally accompanied by the fan creaking.
Lu Zhi didn't sleep last night and didn't go to play with them at noon.
He had planned to make up for the lost sleep in the classroom for a while, but he didn't expect to bump into a 'new classmate who loved to learn'.
It was already very quiet, but he couldn't sleep.
Lu Zhi narrowed his eyes, and they fell on the girl in the first row.
She sat straight, like a well-behaved elementary school student, with her thin arms exposed, and her school uniform didn't fit very well, making her look a little weak.
It was still the little white skirt that looked pleasing to the eye.
Classes started at 2:30 in the afternoon.
The schedule of the Third High School was not as rigid as that of the First High School, and there were no mandatory requirements.
At 1:45, a few students came to the classroom one after another.
Ning Zhen was a little thirsty.
But she remembered her hoarse voice.
It was hard to sound like this.
She was afraid that it would change again after a few days.
Her throat was dry, but she decided to endure it.
Anyway, it was only for one afternoon, and she would go back home to drink water at night.
At around 2:10, the students arrived one after another.
Xia Xiaoshi greeted Ning Zhen.
Ning Zhen quickly nodded at her.
Her eyes were slightly bent, and a faint smile condensed in her eyes.
The class bell rang, and four to five teenagers rushed into the classroom through the front door.
There was the smell of sweat, and everyone's back was wet.
That's the price of going out and playing basketball in the hot summer.
There was the sound of chairs being dragged in the last two rows, and the chemistry teacher walked into the classroom.
He was a middle-aged man.
He wore a pair of glasses, had short stature, and was a little fat.
Because of his thinning hair, he was nicknamed 'Bald Li' by the students of Class 7.
Teacher Li said in a loud voice, "Next time I will enter the classroom earlier.
You are almost in the third year of high school, and if you don't realize this, then I can't help you!"
A girl in the back row whispered, "Even if they don't study, their family's money is enough for them to squander their whole lives."
Bald Li is coming."
"Okay, now open the book and see where I mentioned last time...
"Question 2 on page 68." A student answered.
"Well, see the second question."
Ning Zhen opened the brand new textbook.
The second question on page 68 was a difficult question with four sub-questions about new material nanoparticles.
She quickly scanned the lengthy topics and recalled the task assigned by Lu Zhi.
Her palms were sweating.
Li repeated the big question.
His tone paused for a few seconds, and then his voice rose again.
"What is the answer to the second question Who would like to answer this question"
He pushed his glasses, and his eyes slowly drifted to the last few rows.
Ning Zhen was startled.
With gritted teeth, she raised her right hand.
The whole class looked at her.
In the second to the last row, Lu Zhi laughed and cursed in a low voice, "Fuck!"
She's so cute.
Silly Ning Zhen.
