“You… .” An Chuxia takes a deep breath, suppressing her impulse to beat her.
However, Ying Taoqiu releases her chin before she can react. Anticipating the slap on her face, An Chuxia shuts her eyes tightly.
But before her eyelids call, she sees a zombiefied Ling Hanyu who's sobering up to Ying Tangqiu's surprised expression.
“Young master Ling … .” Ying Taoqiu reacts, busy bowing to him.
Still too early to think, Ling Hanyu realizes An Chuxia was about to get slapped. If she was struck, would she not fight back? How could she close her eyes like a fool? How passive! If this is the case, there is no way for her to continue in Stein and blend in.
Ling Hanyu looks down on Ying Taoqiu with impatient eyes. “You know you shouldn't mess with us unless you court death! If I see you next time, I… .”
He pauses and grabs Ying Taoqiu's hair from behind. “I’ll shave your hair into a hairstyle!"
Ling Hanyu loosens his hold on her mane. In fear of having her head shaved, she runs away hurriedly.
“Thank you,” Chuxia mumbles, nodding her head. “I hope next there won't be a next time for you to help me."
Confused, Ling Hanyu clamps the comic under his armpit. “What do you mean?"
The class bells ring. An Chuxia has given up all worries about being late since she's already tardy. Instead, she straightens her back and looks at Ling Hanyu. “Please, don't misunderstand me. This won't happen again. Just, please, if you think I need help, please don't be impulsive iand come help me. I'll eventually win them over. I just don't want to get into more trouble."
She is very understanding. To quote Leng Yu Mao, she can only be described by her goodwill. With a direct point, it means volumes.
Such as… idiot with intellectual disabilities, brain damage, idiots, knuckleheaded, stupid, and the like… .
“So what you mean is, next time I see them holding a knife to your heart, I should look away and pretend nothing is happening?" Ling Hanyu asks, grinning. "You know, jealousy is the most horrible thing a woman possesses. Once jealous, they just don't say they'll kill you. Putting feces on the corpse is very much a possibility!"
Jealousy, An Chuxia thinks. There is nothing she finds in this place to possess such a feeling.
Ling Hanyu guesses what she is thinking. He smiles and says, "Don't feel there's nothing you possess others are jealous of. You have capital! Think about it. Learn what's appropriate, and make a timely counterattack. All they know is how to bully blindly. Let's go. We're late for class."
He pats her on the shoulder and turns to a different direction. Instead of class, he goes to the political building.
Doesn't he have class? She asks, puzzled. But she didn't think too much. She runs to her class like she is possessed.
She's later than late. She is deader than dead.
Panting, she didn't know there was another surprise waiting behind the door… .CHAPTER 60 Test

The teacher is standing on the podium rehashing his lectures. Students are carefully taking notes. The classroom is so quiet the sound of a needle falling to the ground can be heard.
Of course, that's only her imagination.
Paper planes seem to be attracted to her. As soon as she walks in, a very technically folded plane grazes her cheek. Despite the late bell ringing five minutes ago, there isn’t a teacher on the podium. In fact, there isn’t a teacher to be found!
If there were any notes being jotted, it isn’t for class. It is for commissioned artwork. A brush is taken and a cartoon painting appears on paper. As for the classroom sits so quietly the sound of a needle falling to the ground can heard part? That's all nonsense.
"Hey, An Chuxia! Fasten both when you come back, understand clearly what one lacks!" Some students at the door greet her.
Okay... how can she often forget Stein College’s school spirit?
“No,” she says with a disapproving face. When she sits down, Fei Lixiya takes a hamburger and offers it to her.
“Do you want to eat?” She is elated to see An Chuxia in class.
In the past, she was the disciplinarian; the squad leader. The most common thing she said was, "Quiet! It's class time."
But now, there seems to be no need for disciplinary actions.
Just as she opens her textbook to self-study, the class teacher walks in with a stack of papers. He is not surprised to see the chaotic atmosphere. However, he is momentarily stunned to see An Chuxia earnestly studying.
To satisfy his curiosity, he walks over to An Chuxia and grabs the textbook from her hands. He is dumbfounded when he realizes there aren't any comic books falling from the pages.
“You're reading the book?” The class teacher asks her.
An Chuxia blinks. “Is that a problem?” It is an inexplicable question. He has seen her with the textbook and hadn't found any contraband. Shouldn't he have confirmed this?
“So, ah… .” The class teacher conceals his excitement. He dramatically closes his eyes and takes a deep breath. After opening his eyes, he says heavily,”Students! Stop what you're doing, including the preview… .”
The students are unnerved seeing the teacher so excited. Everyone stops, including those taking a bite out of their burgers.
"We are doing next month's general examination simulation right now!" He raises the papers at the podium. He distributes the sheets to the students on the front row to distribute the tests to the back.
While the papers are being passed, Fei Lixiya takes the time to explain to An Chuxia that the simulation tests are a tradition at Stein. Before each test, the city and its vicinity picks a class to take the examination. Although it is a simulated test, the problems are streamlined. Non-key questions are taken out.
Since the exam takes all morning, students are allowed to use the facilities twice. For every student using the toilet, two deputy class teachers accompany the student to deter cheating.
