Chapter 62: Easy to Crack

In this quiet moment, a clear and loud applause suddenly sounded in the classroom.

Everyone followed the sound and saw a teacher standing at the door of the classroom with her palms overlapping, making a slap gesture, but her face was a little embarrassed.

This teacher is not the head teacher, she is just the teacher in this class. When the class was about to start, she walked into the classroom and bumped into the scene where Zhang Yansheng kicked Wang Qian to the ground.

The teacher was furious. She opened her mouth and sucked all her breath into her throat. She was about to shout to stop the riot, when she suddenly heard the girl who started it yelling, “Why can’t you study hard?”

Teacher: “…” The prepared shout failed to make a sound.

The teacher opened her mouth and listened to the girl’s every sentence, and every sentence was said from her heart!

D*mn it!

What a girl with a clear mind!

Historically, Class 8 has been a drag for Yi High School. Fortunately, the Yi High School has a countermeasure. The records of the students in Class 8 are not listed in Yi High School, but in another ordinary high school under the same education group as Yi High School.

In this way, the college entrance examination scores of these children are not regarded as from Yi High School, and it will not lower the entrance rate of the school.

This is the so-called shadow school.

But despite this operation, the school still has to be careful daily to prevent these rich second generations and second-generation officials from ruining the school spirit.

None of the teachers like Class 8. They looked down at the students in Class 8, which is too contrasting with other classes, and it is not very pleasing to the eyes.

Just now, the teacher thought it was an infighting in Class 8, but only after listening to it, she realized that it was obvious that the students in Class 8 had provoked this girl, whom she didn’t know from which class.

Although this girl has a bad temper, she didn’t miss any point in her words! It’s so cool for the teacher to hear it in her ears! She can’t help but want to applaud her!

She woke up with a slap in the face — she is a teacher! When one student beats another student, how can she applaud it?!

Fortunately, the class bell rang in time, which resolved her embarrassment. The teacher simply clapped her hands twice, raised her voice and said, “Go back to your seats! These two students, yes, you and you, come here, come to the front.”

As early as when Wang Qian put on a weak posture, Zhang Yansheng had guessed that it was a teacher who came. Three years of plastic friendship, Zhang Yansheng really knows Wang Qian too well.

Zhang Yansheng glanced at Wang Qian and walked to the front of the podium. Wang Qian was helped up and limped over.

This time, she didn’t need to pretend to be weak. Zhang Yansheng kicked her several times just now! It really hurts! Tears are coming out!

“Teacher, she hit me…” Wang Qian cried directly.

The teacher was noncommittal and first asked Zhang Yansheng: “This student, which class are you from?”

Zhang Yansheng replied calmly: “Class 2.”

Class 2 is one of the preparatory classes in this school. To be able to enter in Class 2, you must be a good student in the Top 100 within the same year level.

Class 2 versus Class 8, the teacher’s ass crooked directly to Zhang Yansheng’s side.

“Class starts now, don’t influence other classmates here, go and follow me to the dean’s office.” The teacher said to the other students again, “The rest of you, study by yourselves first. Class leader, maintain the discipline.”

How could the monitor maintain the discipline of this young master class? As soon as the teacher left, there was an uproar in the class.

“Zhang Yansheng is too arrogant!”

“But I think she is super cool!”

“What the hell was she talking about just now, I was so fucking dumbfounded! How can she just talk about learning?”

“That’s what I think as well!”

Some people even ridiculed Xu Lichen: “Will she be punished like you? That would be interesting.”

Before Xu Lichen answered, there were already girls from Wang Qian’s small group rushing to say, “She should be punished! Too arrogant! Punishment must be done!”

Students like them actually don’t care about punishment. Like Xu Lichen, he was triumphant when he got a punishment, as if he had won a medal.

But they thought that Zhang Yansheng was in Class 2, and they were most afraid of punishments, criticisms, and the like for such decent and good students like them. If Zhang Yansheng can get a punishment, they can breathe a sigh of relief.

Xu Lichen sneered.

Zhang Yansheng, a person who knows how to keep a low profile, since she dares to act so arrogantly, that means that she doesn’t put the school rules, sanctions, and the like in her eyes.

Thinking that everyone thought that Zhang Yansheng was just an ordinary good student, and only he knew Zhang Yansheng’s true face, Xu Lichen was suddenly very happy.

He raised his eyebrows and said wickedly: “That’s just right, we will be punished as a couple.”

There was another burst of laughter, mixed with the monitor’s weak “Quiet! Self-study!” sound, there were also whispers and unwilling curses from the small group of girls.

The teacher took Zhang Yansheng and Wang Qian to the dean’s office. The first sentence of reporting the situation to the dean almost made Wang Qian’s nose crooked — “As soon as I entered the class, I saw these two female students having a physical conflict.”

What does she mean by ‘having a physical conflict’?! It is clear that Zhang Yansheng beat her unilaterally, okay!!!

This teacher’s ass is going to be tilted to the Atlantic Ocean!

Wang Qian opened her mouth and retorted: “No! It was Zhang Yansheng who rushed into our class and beat people…”

The teacher’s face sank and reprimanded her: “This student, the teacher hasn’t finished speaking yet! Don’t you know that it is basic courtesy not to interrupt when others are talking?”

Wang Qian choked on being reprimanded, so she had to shut up bitterly.

The teacher then reported to the dean: “I don’t have a clear idea of the cause and effect. As soon as I walked in, I heard this female student from Class 2 questioning the female student from Class 8…”

The teacher deliberately and clearly repeated what Zhang Yansheng said.

Sure enough, in the eyes of the teacher and the dean, they saw the gaze of mutual understanding.

That was… the touch of ‘feeling connected with their hearts’.

As soon as they entered the door, the dean was taken aback when he saw Zhang Yansheng.

Because of Xu Lichen’s punishment incident before, he was very impressed with Zhang Yansheng. At that time, he heard that a rich second-generation boy in Class 8 was entangled with a female student in Class 2, so the dean became furious — you poor kids still dare to mess with my good students? You must be taught a lesson!

Afterwards, he remembered to look through Zhang Yansheng’s information and was surprised to find that this beautiful girl… also has the same household condition! How did she get into Class 2? The director verified the results of her placement test and found that although she passed with a low altitude, it was right that her result should be assigned to Class 2 or 3.

He also suspected Zhang Yansheng of cheating.

He naturally distrusts these children who spend money to come in.

For this reason, he also specifically went to Zhang Yansheng’s class teacher. The head teacher said, “I have always paid attention to this student.”

At that time, the first monthly exam hadn’t happened yet. The head teacher transferred out Zhang Yansheng’s usual morning test scores and said, “It looks okay at the moment. The placement test result she got should be the real score.”

The dean was relieved. He didn’t expect that the school would be able to collect money and bring in someone who could enter the preparatory class. It was really a steady profit without loss!

The dean just didn’t expect to see Zhang Yansheng in his office again so soon. He listened to the teacher repeat what Zhang Yansheng had said, and he was ‘in a daze’ in his heart.

This kid! How can you talk so sweetly!

She just said everything all the teachers wanted to say!

After the class teacher explained the situation and secretly hinted at her own tendency, she hurried back to the class and handed both Zhang Yansheng and Wang Qian to the dean.

But the dean’s heart has already turned to the Atlantic Ocean!

“Zhang Yansheng, right? Tell me, why did the two of you have a conflict?” The dean took the baton handed over by the teacher, and first came up to characterize the incident as ‘the two sides are in physical conflict with each other’, rather than one party unilaterally beating the other party.

Wang Qian had a bad feeling when she heard it.

In the past, no matter what she did, she could always hide behind others, and in the end, if something happened, she could always clear herself. But this time, she inexplicably felt… not very good.

“Teacher, it’s her…” She wanted to interrupt again.

The dean waved his hand and said impatiently: “One by one!”

Wang Qian had to shut her mouth again.

Zhang Yansheng briefly stated: “This classmate Wang Qian, because she didn’t like me, had cooperated with five other girls before the holiday and held me in the women’s toilet of the subway station in an attempt to teach me a lesson.”

The Ministry of Education has repeatedly stated that it is necessary to put an end to bullying on schools. This is the key work in the past two years.

When the dean heard this, his face immediately sank, he looked at Wang Qian sharply, and asked, “Student Wang, is that right?”

How could Wang Qian obediently confess her guilt, so she immediately denied it: “We didn’t, we just wanted to talk to her! As a result, she beat us up! She bullied us!” She put the blame on Zhang Yansheng with a backhand.

Zhang Yansheng let out a cry and said, “Dean, I am alone and there are six of them.”

No matter how much Wang Qian quibbled, this number of people alone was enough to explain the problem.

After Zhang Yansheng finished speaking, she turned her head and asked Wang Qian: “I am from Class 2 and you are from Class 8. Before that, I had never talked to you nor did I know you. What did you want to talk to me about with a group of people?”

“That’s right.” The dean also asked in a deep voice, “What do you want to talk to her about?”

Wang Qian was speechless.

She can’t say that it’s about Xu Lichen, right?

Isn’t that f*cking bullying someone after falling into the pit of puppy love?

“Dean.” Zhang Yansheng suddenly leaned over and picked up the pen on the director’s desk, tore up a piece of memo paper, wrote down a few names, and handed it over, “These are the names of those girls.”

She remembered that she had just said that she didn’t know Wang Qian at all before, and she explained to herself: “I found out afterwards.”

The dean took the note and glanced at it, and asked Zhang Yansheng, “Were you injured at the time?”

“No.” Zhang Yan said vaguely, “I’m strong so they can’t hurt me, it was just an attempt.”

The dean breathed a sigh of relief.

Wang Qian didn’t say anything at this time. They were bullied by Zhang Yansheng.

She was surprised that Zhang Yansheng could figure out the names of everyone in the small group.

The list proves that it was really six versus one. No matter how Zhang Yansheng bullies them, it is estimated that the director will not believe it.

Zhang Yansheng continued: “Then a few of them, under Wang Qian’s instructions, spread rumors that slandered me. In order to spread this rumor to our class, they struck up a conversation with the classmates in my class. I only learned about it when my classmates came to complain to me. The students in Class 2 usually fight against the clock. We are even brushing up questions during lunch breaks. Because of me, they were harassed and delayed their studies. I was angry for a while, so I went to confront Wang Qian.”

“I understand.” The dean stood up and said, “Okay, Zhang Yansheng, go back to your class first. Wang Qian, come with me.”

Zhang Yansheng responded, followed him out of the office, and went back to the classroom of Class 2.

It’s been 10 minutes since the class started. The dean also said hello to the teacher in the class: “I had something to discuss with this student just now.”

The teacher did not reprimand Zhang Yansheng.

The dean took Wang Qian to Class 8 and let her go back, but according to the note given by Zhang Yansheng, he called out the other five girls.

He took all these five girls to the office, held up the sticky note, and wanted to ask one of them the first question. However, he saw that one of the five names was Zou Zihan with a horizontal line underneath Zhang Yansheng’s name. The director subconsciously called Zou Zihan for the first question.

Zhang Yansheng drew a line under Zou Zihan’s name because Zou Zihan was particularly instigated. The other girls were still racking their brains thinking about how to make up nonsense and shirk responsibility. When she was called out by the director, she was so scared and told him everything: “Wang Qian told us to do it.” She twisted her fingers and said, “What I didn’t think carefully about was when she said that Zhang Yansheng must be taught a lesson.”

The other girls looked at each other.

At this time, no one can take the pot on oneself anymore. Everyone gave each other a meaningful glance and reached an agreement.

“Wang Qian didn’t let us go.”

“Xu Lichen likes Zhang Yansheng, but Wang Qian likes Xu Lichen, so she wants to teach Zhang Yansheng a lesson.”

“We just merely followed her.”

“It was all Wang Qian!”

Plastic has never been strong.

It is particularly easy to crack.
