Taoqiu squats inside one of the stalls. She's playing on her phone when a burst of noise errupts. Several girls enter the toilet.
She just wants the girls to be quiet until she accidentally hears An Chuxia's name.
"After hearing An Chuxia sister's lecture, I suddenly feel like we are not that stupid. Those are difficult problems, but her analysis? Tut, tut. Very good. Are some of the topics stacked as problems only?" A tired voice befalls Ying Taoqiu's ears.
Ying Taoqiu puts her phone back into her pocket, leaning closer to the door to listen to the dialogue.
"Yes! I am confident now. I think tomorrow's complex test can be answered." Another excited voice answers.
"And… I also think the city will be pleased when they evaluate class A since we will be number one."
"That is, of course, if you study the formula. Can you recite it back to me again?"
"What is so difficult? An Chuxia sister said the formula is simple, that even if you have brain damage, you can remember it if you give yourself a moment to think. Here, I'll repeat it back to you… ."
Their voices start sounding farther and farther until they can't be heard anymore.
She has to piece together the information she just heard. Were they talking about taking first place in the city test?
Isn't there a saying, "When pigs fly"?
Ying Taoqiu finishes her business, walks out of the toilet, and heads over to see Mo Xinwei.
“Ying Taoqiu, are you saying An Chuxia is a fool? Engaged in what ghost?” Mo Xinwei puts a hand on the chest. She and the girls behind her take out perfume from their bags and start spraying.
The once unscented toilet now suddenly smells like Chanel.
"I've just found out that it is the school's long-term goal to improve the scores of students in the first year class. It is determined by which class gets the highest average within the city. An Chuxia's result got the distinct honor for their class. I died laughing when I heard that."
This is the first time Mo Xinwei hears the news. Her brow wrinkles. "Say again about the class?"
"That's what I heard. Mainly, An Chuxia is now the class teacher. She stands on the podium and gives them lectures!"
"You didn't talk to her?" Mo Xinwei laughs disdainfully. "I have to tell this funny story to Han Qilu and see his reaction."
Mo Xinwei hurries out.
Ying Taoqiu shrugs. She thinks about the class being ranked first in the city. Then, she bursts into laughter. The absurdity is just too funny!
"Han Qilu!" Mo Xinwei heads into year two Class A. Qilu is in class with Luo and Yu.
"What?" Han Qilu asks boredly, as he fingers through the pages of the car magazine. He's disappointed she's interrupting him.
"I've heard the biggest joke of the year. An Chuxia is in the class."
Hearing An Chuxia's name, Ling Hanyu and Xiao Mingluo immediately start listening.CHAPTER 66 Countdown to the Fourth

“Say that again?” Han Qilu coldly interrupts Mo Xinwei.
Mo Xinwei's mouth continues to twitch. "This is exactly my point! Their class just took the simulation test. Their result ranks them first in the city! And all this change is because of An Chuxia!"
Xiao Mingluo listens in annoycance. Why does Mo Xinwei look down on people? He knows it's ineffective to attack her on the spot. He has to look for other opportunities.
"And An Chuxia, instead of the teacher, lectures on the podium! Who does she think she is? The Virgin Mary?" Mo Xinwei says with a look of disdain.
Ling Hanyu expels a dry cough, just enough to make Mo Xinwei feel very uncomfortable.
"Miss Mo Xinwei, you don't seem to know one thing," Ling Hanyu lifts an eyebrow. "You may not know what Han Qilu knows."
Xiao Mingluo smiles and says, "An Chuxia has become a legend. She won Stein's Simulated General Month exam with full scores. Her branch points… ."
Her face blackens. How come Ying Taoqiu didn't tell her this?
"That's impossible! I'd believe it if she'd come to school sooner, or if she was a seventh year student who had maids read to her." She obviously doubts Xiao Mingluo's statement. Subconsciously, Xinwei knows Mingluo and Hanyu stand on An Chuxia's side. She doesn't understand why.
Ling Hanyu also glances at her mouth and eyes. "You doubt all the other students in Stein are talking about her? In addition… you come to our class to talk to Han Qilu. An Chuxia's name is not allowed to be mentioned in front of him."
"But I didn't expect you to debrief the world's headlines like a military adviser." Xiao Mingluo laughs.
"Yes, Mo Xinwei, I heard that in the simulation of your whole section, you ended in the bottom four of your class. Really, congratulations to you!" Ling Hanyu gloats.
Mo Xinwei stares at him fiercely but dares not to respond.
Qilu remains stoic. They're unsure if he even heard a word.
The class bell rings. Han Qilu suddenly stands up and walks.
“Han Qilu, where are you going?” Xiao Mingluo and Ling Hanyu catch up. Mo Xinwei quickly turns out of the class and walks. She would like to ask Ying Taoqiu if she knew An Chuxia got full marks in this matter.
She kicks second year's B classroom door. The once bustling classroom instantly becomes quiet.
“Ying Taoqiu!” She strides in front of her. “Did you know An Chuxia took the first year simulation of the general exam and got a perfect score?"
Ying Taoqiu shows confusion. All morning, she was more concerned about her diarrhea and not trivial matters like this.
"She didn't make a mistake?" Chuxia got a perfect score. She was in the bottom five of the class. It's low but she tested better than Mo Xinwei.
Finding out that Taoqiu didn't know about that tidbit of information made Mo Xinwei really angry. "You're saying you didn't know despite the whole school knowing? You're not taking An Chuxia's side and deliberately humiliating me in front of Han Qilu, right?"
