After Transmigration, The Male Lead and I had a HE - Chapter 225
In the end, what Gao Jing never expected was that the situation actually developed into a scenario of both him and Su Yuanzhou moving a stool over for themselves and having a self-revision session there and then.
At this time, the students of Class 1 were divided into small groups to have discussions. However, their group arranged their tables as if they were going to play a round of mahjong.
In this regard, Gao Jing questioned Su Yuanzhou, “You were the one who wanted that extra tutoring, so why did you drag me into this for?”
Su Yuanzhou raised his eyebrows and responded, “With your second-to-last grade in the class, are you not embarrassed to not study?”
Gao Jing was shocked, becoming speechless.
He never imagined that such words would come out of Su Yuanzhou’s mouth as it sounded both strange yet oddly reasonable.
He would have believed his friend to be the studious type if it weren’t for the fact that Su Yuanzhou was dead last— both in class and in their year.
This particular period in class was originally meant for them to have a study group discussion, so Peng Jianda did not expect two lightbulbs(1) to crash the party.
(T/N: In Chinese, when you third-wheel someone, you’re called a lightbulb though it does not limit to only the 3rd person. Anyone who shows up uninvited or shouldn’t belong there can be considered a lightbulb)
And no matter how he tried to look at things, the lightbulbs were those with dense brains.
During this period, Su Yuanzhou took out a few crumpled pieces of paper, that looked like pickled vegetables, from his pocket. Su Qiuge even suspected that if he were to forget to bring toilet paper with him to the washroom, he might actually use those papers.
Su Yuanzhou squinted his eyes and glanced around before he took out the language paper and began to answer them. Not long after writing, he poked Gao Jing with his elbow and asked casually, “What is the next sentence for ‘Ba Shan Chu Shui Qi Liang Di’?”
Gao Jing replied without raising his head, “Responsibility.”(2)
(T/N: It comes from a poem and each phrase has seven syllables, so the same applies to the following sentence. The joke here is that ‘responsibility’, when read in a Chinese accent, would have 7 syllables as well to make it rhyme)
Su Yuanzhou made an ‘oh’ sound and picked up his pen to write. After a moment, he kicked the stool on which Gao Jing was sitting on, “What’re you saying?”
Peng Jianda, who was at the sides, thought that Su Yuanzhou had finally reacted. Instead, he heard Su Yuanzhou confidently say, “It’s such a long word, so what are you trying to play at, huh? Why won’t you at least spell it out for me? Do you actually think that I know how to write that?”
Gao Jing didn’t say a word. As if he was used to it, he took the language paper in silence and quickly wrote a string of discordant English letters on the horizontal line of the answer column before returning it.
This movement of his was as smooth as flowing water and it looked like similar situations had happened countless times before.
Su Yuanzhou snorted and said, “That’s much better,” Afterwards, he didn’t even bother to re-check the answer and went straight to the next question.
Peng Jianda was shocked to see this scene.
He sighed in his heart, wow, one of them asks bold questions whereas the other gives bold answers!!!
No wonder the teachers of Class 12 went bald in their early years; there was a reason all along.
If it was Peng Jianda who had to face such an outrageous answer paper, he would have sunken into despair as well.
Su Yuanzhou quickly finished answering the language test paper before he took out his biology paper and started tackling it. He seldom did his own homework before. Things that made others pull all-nighters for were merely tasks that he would copy off the morning of the class.
Hence, it was deemed as hard labor to do these papers. Halfway through the paper, he realized that he had practically finished answering the questions that he knew of. But because he didn’t know much to begin with, he became bored and raised his gaze, glancing at Su Qiuge and Xie Xinglin who sat opposite of him.
Su Qiuge seemed to be stumped on a particular question, so she asked Xie Xinglin about it in a low voice. Xie Xinglin circled something on her test paper with a pen and then leaned over to explain the question.
The distance between them was too close, but both of them were used to it.
Seeing this scene, Su Yuanzhou couldn’t help but clench his fists.
At this time, Gao Jing glanced at Su Yuanzhou’s test paper, and said to him with indifference, “You did this question wrong, right?”
Since Gao Jing said this, Su Yuanzhou immediately found an opportunity to interrupt the two of them. He leaned forward, tapped Xie Xinglin’s desk with a pen and said, “Hey, isn’t it about time you show me some of that sincerity?”
He placed the biology question paper in front of Xie Xinglin and the latter blinked. Su Qiuge felt a little helpless as she glanced at Xie Xinglin, but he did not show any signs of impatience even when he glanced at Su Yuanzhou’s test paper.
Su Qiuge was also curious to know what sort of question Su Yuanzhou asked.
Before Xie Xinglin could speak, Su Qiuge leaned forward and said, “Dude, what sort of methods cannot be used when it comes to the census of the human population? Isn’t it obvious that the answer is C, the Mark-Recapture method?”
“You can actually get this wrong? Are you kidding me?”
Nevertheless, Su Yuanzhou raised his eyebrows and asked, “Why can’t humans use the Mark-Recapture method?”
Su Qiuge, “…”
Su Qiuge rolled her eyes and she couldn’t help but say, “That method can only be used by animals.”
However, Su Yuanzhou was very eager to argue as he retorted, “Then do you imply that humans aren’t animals? Aren’t humans also mammals?”
At this time, Su Yuanzhou looked like a gangster who didn’t know what else to do, protesting with a slur of nonsensical words. Su Qiuge resisted the urge to hammer him as she showed a gentle smile and explained, “Of course people are considered animals, but the Mark-Recapture method is to put a mark on them and before letting them return to their habitat. So by that, do you mean you want to have your butt crossed with a red X, be sent back home and be captured again on a later date?”
When Su Qiuge said this, Peng Jianda couldn’t help but laugh as he gave her a thumbs up. Su Yuanzhou, who was originally embarrassed, looked at him with a bad expression, as if he was raising his eyebrows. He asked, “You? What the hell are you laughing at?”
Upon seeing this, Peng Jianda couldn’t help but say, “Actually, this question is still quite difficult— just like what classmate Su Yuanzhou said just now, people are indeed animals. Thinking about that, getting stuck at this question is very normal.”
Tang Jie, a member of another group on the sides, silently rolled his eyes but did not speak.
