Chapter 52: Teach a Lesson

In the past, in Class 8, most of the students had good family conditions. Xu Lichen and Zhang Yansheng are among the best in the class.

In the presence of Xu Lichen, Zhang Yansheng was not only equal to him, but also stronger than him. She once said fiercely to Xu Lichen: “Wang Qian is my best friend. I don’t want to ruin our relationship because of you.”

Xu Lichen compromised, so it has always been a three-person situation.

But in this life, Zhang Yansheng entered Class 2. This class is composed of all the students who are really admitted to the first-year high school based on their grades, and most of them are children from ordinary families. Zhang Yansheng guessed that her family conditions should be the top-notch in the Class 2.

In this life, she wants to steadily break all the wrong paths in her previous life, and remain in Class 2 through her own efforts. She hopes that she can fit into this class and not be too out of place.

So, when she heard the students in Class 2 talking about how many luxury cars were there to pick up the students in Class 8, she asked Xiao Zhou to park the car on the side of the road behind the subway station.

After school, she walked to the subway station like some other students. The people who really wanted to take the subway went down. When she arrived at the entrance, she bypassed the subway station and got into her car — of course, no classmates saw it, everyone had already got in the subway.

Very low-key.

But because of this low profile, Xu Lichen also misunderstood it. He thought she was a girl with an ordinary family background. For a rich second generation like him, when facing a girl with an ordinary family background, he naturally has a sense of superiority and felt very strong.

And now, seeing that the entanglement is ineffective, this kid has begun to try to seduce her with excellent economic conditions!

Zhang Yansheng almost laughed in anger.

She found that people really can’t be too low-key. If they keep a low profile, others will want to suppress you, and they will be condescending when they look at you.

In the previous life, Xu Lichen had always been responsive and gentle to Zhang Yansheng.

Zhang Yansheng gritted her teeth, but found that it was probably because of the gentleness, thoughtfulness, and diligence in her previous life that she couldn’t help but classify Xu Lichen as ‘one of her own’ in her heart.

This kid is still very young now and he still doesn’t know the complexity of things, so he just flaunts himself as being outstanding.

It’s so ridiculous.

Zhang Yansheng gritted her teeth and said, “You, follow me.”

Xu Lichen raised his eyebrows and followed Zhang Yansheng. Her legs are long and straight, and she is obviously very thin, but she doesn’t have the lightness of other girls walking. When she walks, her long legs spread out, giving people a feeling of ‘sinking’ downwards, sonorous, and powerful.

Xu Lichen likes this feeling very much.

He smiled and said, “Where are we going? If you don’t want to take my car, I can take the subway with you.”

Zhang Yansheng rolled her eyes and strode towards the subway station.

The subway station is just five minutes away from the gate of Yi High School. The two of them are tall and long-legged, with long and fast steps, they will be there in three or two minutes. Many Yi High School students can be seen going down from the subway entrance.

But Zhang Yansheng didn’t walk into the subway entrance, she continued to walk forward. Xu Lichen followed her: “Where are you going?”

When she walked to the back of the entrance of the subway station, Zhang Yansheng stopped. Xu Lichen followed and stopped as well.

Zhang Yansheng also supported her chin: “Did you see that car?”

Xu Lichen followed her gaze and praised: “That car is good, is that… Yaoying?”

Zhang Yansheng knew that Xu Lichen had knowledge about cars.

When an average high school student sees it, he can recognize that it is a Rolls-Royce car, but Xu Lichen can call out the model in one bite.

However, he didn’t know what Zhang Yansheng meant by letting him see the car.

Zhang Yansheng smiled and walked over.

It’s already cooler at the end of September. There is no need to turn on the air conditioner in the car. It’s more comfortable to bask in the sun outside.

Xiao Zhou was standing there while smoking. When he raised his eyes and saw Zhang Yansheng coming, he pinched his cigarette and said, “School is over.” He reached out and opened the door for Zhang Yansheng.

He is proficient in his movements and looks like a very professional driver at first glance.

Zhang Yansheng didn’t get in the car. She held the door and said, “I’ll just say a few words to my classmate.”

Xiao Zhou agreed and got into the car by himself.

Zhang Yansheng didn’t get in the car. She slammed the door of the car and looked up at Xu Lichen.

Xu Lichen opened his mouth as if he was able to swallow a duck egg, which was a bit silly — there was no way for Zhang Yansheng, who was reborn, to look at these very ‘social’ and ‘cool’ peers at the beginning and not see who was stupid.

“The students in Class 2 don’t pay much attention to family economic conditions and the like. I don’t think there is any need to be too eye-catching in the class, so I asked the car at home to stop here every day and wait for me. It’s not that there is no car for me to sit in.” She tilted her head slightly, looked at him and said this.

Xu Lichen felt that he really couldn’t understand this girl Zhang Yansheng. She was more complicated than he thought.

She tilted her head slightly to speak with some disdain, and a little bit of a smile, as if she had seen through all his little thoughts.

He has a feeling of being invisible.

“Xu Lichen,” Zhang Yansheng asked, “Do you think that the girls you’re chasing will like you sooner or later because you are rich and attractive?”

This really hit the nail on the head, on Xu Lichen’s mentality.

Xu Lichen opened his mouth, trying to say something, but found that he had nothing to say. Isn’t that what he really thinks? He deeply feels that he is handsome and rich. Even if a girl is reserved for a while, she will naturally not be able to be keep her reservation after a long time.

Zhang Yansheng sneered, put on her sunglasses, opened the car door, and said sarcastically: “I am also rich and beautiful. I don’t lack anything. I study better than you. What can you do to impress me? It makes me — laugh!”

She got into the car and closed the door with a ‘bang’: “Let’s go.”

Xiao Zhou heard something vaguely, and while starting the car, he asked, “Is this boy pestering you? Would you like to report it to Master Zhang?”

“No need.” Zhang Yansheng said, “I can solve it by myself.”

After a while, she said: “…He’s just a child.”

Are you not a child yourself? Xiao Zhou thought, but glanced at the young lady at the back seat in the rearview mirror. Her face with sunglasses was indeed not so childish and much more mature than her peers.

Many times, Xiao Zhou didn’t feel that she was a ‘child’, and would subconsciously treat her as a peer of his own age.

He really doesn’t feel that she’s a child.

Zhang Yansheng gave Xu Lichen a punishment. Xu Lichen didn’t care at all, and was even a little triumphant.

He went to the teaching office to receive the punishment and returned to the class. The boys all knew that Zhang Yansheng had reported him. They felt that this was the legendary ‘love each other and kill each other’. Everyone applauded, heckled, and whistled.

Someone shouted: “A hero is sad after being turned off by a beauty!”

Everyone laughed.

Xu Lichen clenched his fists: “There’s no way that a beautiful woman can bring a hero to his death!”

Everyone laughed again.

The atmosphere in Class 8 is like this.

But Wang Qian was very upset!

When she first started school, she did feel that Xu Lichen was not bad and a bit handsome. When Xu Lichen came to strike up a conversation, she still held it a little bit, wanting to be reserved and then plan to develop further with him.

Unexpectedly, before she finished being reserved, Zhang Yansheng walked past the two of them…

Since then, there has been no her in Xu Lichen’s eyes!

That kind of thing that she thought was ‘not bad’ and that it must belong to her, but didn’t get it and couldn’t have it… so it became an obsession for her.

She looked at Xu Lichen again and he was more than ‘not bad’, so she became more and more unwilling.

In the whole first year level, everyone saw Xu Lichen chasing Zhang Yansheng, but in private, Wang Qian was chasing Xu Lichen. It’s just that Zhang Yansheng didn’t respond to Xu Lichen, and Xu Lichen didn’t respond to Wang Qian either.

The more you can’t get it, the more you feel that he is better, and that no one else can match him.

But the ‘not bad’ in her heart was abandoned by Zhang Yansheng!

Not only did Zhang Yansheng look down on Xu Lichen, she even gave Xu Lichen a punishment mercilessly.

And Xu Lichen, why is he so cheap?! He is also very happy and proud! Wang Qian was about to explode with anger!

Wang Qian was determined to show Zhang Yansheng some face.

Although it has only been a month since the start of school, Wang Qian seems to have established the status of ‘female boss’ in the class. As soon as she appealed, several girls immediately responded to her.

“I didn’t like that Zhang Yansheng a long time ago! She’s like a vixen!”

“What pride does she have? Hooking up with boys all day long, in every other class, the boys in our class talk about her all day long!”

“That’s the kind of woman who is in the dark! We have to teach her a lesson!”

It sounds like everyone is like a righteous knight, but Wang Qian’s heart is clear — everyone likes Xu Lichen, or has a hidden feeling or a secret love for him. Therefore, facing Zhang Yansheng, who Xu Lichen likes but doesn’t take him seriously, everyone has a common enemy.

These are all girls with very good conditions at home. When the sky collapses, they are supported by their parents with money. They are not afraid of heaven or earth.

Everyone discussed how to teach Zhang Yansheng a lesson.

Yi High School is a strict school. Xu Lichen can be punished for chasing girls like this. These girls dare not make trouble in the school. They decided to teach Zhang Yansheng outside the school.

Discussions came and went, and the location was chosen, which is in the subway station.

Zhang Yansheng is said to have taken the subway to and from school. Going down the subway, there is a very long corridor, which is very suitable for people and the atmosphere is very good.

There is a toilet in the subway. When the time comes, they will pull Zhang Yansheng to the toilet and let her drink the toilet water!

If there is sh*t, let her eat the sh*t too!

Take a picture of her like that as well! Haha!

Let her cry and promise that she will never hook up with Xu Lichen again!

The next day was Friday and the girls were very mobile, so they waited in the corridor under the subway in advance.

A girl is responsible to be on the lookout from above.

At about the same time, the girl who was watching above ran down: “She’s here! She’s coming! Zhang Yansheng is here!”

Everyone stood up and put on a very imposing pose.

Wang Qian also lit a cigarette, took two sips, and stood in the middle of the crowd, sneering and waiting for Zhang Yansheng to appear.

Especially with the style of ‘female boss’!


Twenty minutes later, she had smoked several cigarettes already, but they hadn’t seen any sign of Zhang Yansheng.

Wang Qian’s face was livid: “Where is she?”

The girl who was on the lookout was also dumbfounded: “I’ve seen her walk towards the subway!”

The girls gave up waiting for the rabbit and went up through the escalator again. Only when they got out of the subway entrance did they see the students of Yi High School in twos and threes, but where is the shadow of Zhang Yansheng?

Wang Qian asked with a sullen face: “Did you see it clearly? Was it really her?”

“Can I be mistaken?” The girl said with resolve, “Her face, I might have been wrong!”

That’s really unlikely…

Where did Zhang Yansheng go?

Isn’t she taking the subway?

Why did she disappear in broad daylight???
