After the students wrote down the schools of their choice and submitted the paper, the bell for school dismissal rang. It was Friday today, so school was dismissed earlier.
“Alright, those who have handed in what you wrote can go home now,” Madam Yu, their homeroom teacher who was also teaching the last period of class, told the students with Yun Jian’s paper in her hand.
Yun Jian went back to her seat and left together with Zhang Shaofeng and Zhang Jian. She had only taken two steps away from her seat when Madam Yu’s shout came from behind her.
“Yun Jian, you didn’t write down your target score. Your goal is Min City’s military school and this school has requirement for academic grades too!”
“Besides, it’s considered crossing cities to go from Longmen City to Min City. The score margin wouldn’t be low if you want to enroll all the way to Min City.”
Madam Yu had stopped Yun Jian because she did not write down her target score for the Senior High School Entrance Examination. However, the short exchange between them managed to spill quite some information.
Yun Jian turned around, already shouldering her bag, as she looked at Madam Yu and answered with a smile, “I’m not putting the score down.”
Did she just tell their homeroom teacher “I’m not putting the score down”? Wow? Did she just challenge the teacher?
The rest of the students in class could not help looking over to Yun Jian.
Usually, students were more or less deferential to the homeroom teacher, so it astonished the class when Yun Jian talked to Madam Yu in such tone.
“Why not?” Even Madam Yu herself was surprised.
“Because... there’s no way I wouldn’t be going!” The latter half of Yun Jian’s answer brimmed with unmistakable confidence.
She was confident and brazen but no one thought that she was spewing nonsense.
Yun Jian pressed her lips together slightly and turned to go to the backdoor of the classroom with her shoulder bag and a cool sense of dominance.
Perhaps it was because of her assertive boldness, Madam Yu did not say anything even as she watched her leave.
Parting with Zhang Shaofeng and Zhang Jian at the school gate, Yun Jian went back in the direction of her house.
Si Yi had not been home recently as he had returned to An Hun Group, so Yun Jian had been rather bored at home alone.
Dong Yuan’s house, a villa, was built in a residential area, which meant that there were other villas lining up around her house. It was unlike Ge Junjian’s place where his villa was isolated from others in near distance. As Yun Jian got closer to Dong Ruan’s house, she saw her mother standing and chatting to the neighbors not too far away.
The rich housewives who were chatting with Qin Yirou came from affluent background. Qin Yirou knew them by accident and all of them thought that Qin Yirou was of similar social status, so they gathered around for a chat.
Since she was invited, Qin Yirou chatted with them merrily. When she saw Yun Jian, she called out to her directly.
“Xiao Jian, you’re back?” she greeted.
“Mn, mom.” Yun Jian nodded hoisting her bag.
Her delicate and pretty face attracted the attention of the rich housewives.
“Yirou, is this your daughter? She’s gorgeous!” One of the rich housewives who stood next to Qin Yirou complimented and scanned Yun Jian.
The woman had gotten to know Qin Yirou first before introducing the latter to other women. The family name of this rich housewife’s husband was Yang—Mrs. Yang was a nice woman; it was easy getting along with her.
Qin Yirou nodded at her and replied in pride, “Yeah, Xiao Jian’s my daughter.”
Another rich housewife took some time staring at Yun Jian’s face before she spoke up, “She’s really a gorgeous girl.. Yirou, my son’s about 20 years old this year. He’s quite good looking too, a great match with your daughter!”
