Ch. 26 The king will not go to the court early
The next day, Xie Jingxian and Jiang Juan got up early, ate breakfast and went to school.
There are more than 1,000 students in the sophomore department of Jincheng High School. The examination room starts from No. 1, and there are thirty people in each examination room, making a total of 61 examination rooms.
Xie Jingxian, as the No. 1 in the grade, naturally took the No. 1 examination room. The No. 1 examination room is located in the main building, which is very eye-catching and can be seen at a glance.
And Jiang Juan, no, it should be said that because the original owner’s grades were at the bottom, Jiang Juan had to go to the last exam room. Examination room No. 61 is located in the old building.
Old building was the first one to be built, and now looks very much like it’s name. It is located in a remote place, like an odd one out.
Not long after entering the campus, Jiang Juan and Xie Jingxian met Xu Rang and Ye Pei. After a night’s rest, Xu Rang looked in great spirits, and greeted Jiang Juan in a lively manner.
Ye Pei, wearing glasses and a gentle look, greeted Xie Jingxian with a smile. Xie Jingxian nodded in response.
The original owner Jiang Juan and Xie Jingxian had feud between them and Ye Pei, as Jiang Juan’s best buddy, naturally had seen Xie Jingxian before.
Although there were occasional conflicts, the main battlefield was still in the classroom. Ye Pei and Xie Jingxian were not in the same class, so they didn’t have much grudges.
And now that Jiang Juan and Xie Jingxian have become friends, the grievances in the past had become a thing of the past.
Jiang Juan greeted Ye Pei and Xu Rang, then grabbed Xu Rang and asked, “Did you memorize the few ancient poems I wrote to you yesterday?”
Xu Rang raised his chin, looking very confident, “Brother Juan, you can ask me, if I can’t answer, I will lose.”
Jiang Juan said, “Oh?” and laughed. Here, he is ‘Jiang Juan’, and Xu Rang and Ye Pei are his friends. As a friend, Ye Pei has excellent grades and strong abilities, so he has nothing to worry about him.
But Xu Rang is the total opposite, his grades are not good, and his temper is a little grumpy. If he is not guided correctly, he will be out of tune with the rest of the society in the future, and he will definitely become the kind of “sloppy rice bag” or “ the useless rich second generation”, that are often mentioned on the Internet. Jiang Juan didn’t want such words to be used to describe his friends.
Seeing Xu Rang’s self-confidence now, Jiang Juan was in a good mood when he saw that Xu Rang’s life was getting on the right track.
Jiang Juan asked, “What’s the next sentence after you need to be proud of in life?”
Xu Rang puffed up his chest and said, “From now on, the king will not go to court early.”
Jiang Juan, Xie Jingxian, and Ye Pei: “…”
For the sake of being a friend, Jiang Juan decided to give Xu Rang another chance, saying, “There is nowhere to go after breaking through the iron shoes, the next sentence.”
Xu Rang smiled and said, “That person is in the dim light.” Actual sentence:- I went everywhere, even broke my iron shoes for the truth but still got nothing, who knew, it was just under my eyes.
“How much worry can you have?”
“Don’t have a taste in your heart.”
“Love when you wake up.”
“Suddenly the children set off!” I am not exactly sure about this one, it may be something like:- the parents are making love and suddenly the children come to interrupt them.
“Jiangzhou Sima’s green shirt is wet.” War Minister of Jiangzhou’s face does not look good. Here, Green shirt is wet can also mean ‘face does not look good.
“Prefect of Xuancheng does not know.”
With the gradual questions and answers, Jiang Juan’s face darkened little by little.
Ye Pei couldn’t no longer stand upright, as he bent down while holding his stomach and laughing, “Hahaha, Xu Rang, you are really a genius.”
Xu Rang blinked and asked Jiang Juan innocently, “Am I wrong?”
Jiang Juan smiled and said, “No, you are especially right.”
Xu Rang saw Jiang Juan’s smile and couldn’t help but take a step back and said, “Brother Juan, just talk when you want to talk, what are you doing with your fingers?”
Jiang Juan said, “I think you may be in a daze, let’s clear your mind.”
Seeing the dangerous look on Jiang Juan’s face, Xu Rang stretched out his arm and shouted, “Wait a minute!”
As soon as Jiang Juan stopped, he saw Xu Rang taking out a piece of paper from his school uniform pocket, glanced at it quickly, and the confident smile on his face disappeared.
When he looked up at Jiang Juan again, he laughed dryly, and then ran away, with Jiang Juan chasing after him, “Stop for me!”
Xu Rang pounced on Ye Pei and yelled Xiao Yeye to help.
Ye Pei was dragged around by Xu Rang, and finally had to click his watch and remind them,, “If you don’t leave now, you will be late.”
As soon as they heard him, Jiang Juan and Xu Rang stopped.
The old Building was close, so Jiang Juan and Xu Rang arrived downstairs not long after they walked.
Although Ye Pei belonged to Jiang Juan and Xu Rang’s small group, he fought and studied simultaneously. From the time he entered school, his grades were stable within the top 50 of his grade.
This is also the reason why everyone in Jincheng High School thinks of Jiang Juan and Xu Rang when they mention school bullies, but ignore Ye Pei.
With his excellent grades at the end of last semester, Ye Pei and Xie Jingxian stayed in the same exam room smoothly. He waved at Jiang Juan and Xu Rang and said with a smile, “Brothers, come on.”
Xie Jingxian just nodded at Jiang Juan and Xu Rang, then turned around and left.
Jiang Juan said, “Xie Jingxian, we’re leaving now? Don’t you want to tell me something?”
He thought that since he and Xie Jingxian were always reviewing together these days, so they are also friends of the same mind now. Especially since Xie Jingxian knew the agreement between him and his father.
The exam time was approaching, and many students came and went in front of the old Building. When they heard Jiang Juan’s words, they couldn’t help but slow down and peek over here.
Xie Jingxian turned around, looked into Jiang Juan’s eyes and said, “What’s the next sentence after you must be proud of in life?”
Jiang Juan didn’t understand why Xie Jingxian asked this, and blurted out, “The king won’t go to court earlier?”
Xie Jingxian didn’t give him time to react, and continued, “When you wake up, you are surrounded by love?”
Jiang Juan: “The children suddenly set off.”
Ye Pei, Xu Rang: “…”
The person eavesdropping next to them: “…”
Looking at Xie Jingxian’s eyes, Jiang Juan suddenly reacted, “No!” It’s all Xu Rang’s fault. He brainwashed him! He also spoke so smoothly!
Xie Jingxian didn’t say anything, just patted Jiang Juan’s shoulder.
It was more effective than words.
Jiang Juan had never been so embarrassed before, his ears were burning red, he turned and said to Xie Jingxian’s back, “I really know these two poems.”
Xie Jingxian waved his hand without looking back and entered the Main Building.
Ye Pei couldn’t help laughing, waved at Jiang Juan and left.
Jiang Juan was extremely depressed, he groped Xu Rang’s neck who wanted to run, narrowed his eyes and said, “I’ll kill you!”
Xu Rang smiled ingratiatingly at Jiang Juan, and explained, “I really recited these poems well yesterday. My mother even saw me working so hard, so she brought me a cup of warm milk, and she also shared it in her circle of friends, I will find it for you.”
Jiang Juan pressed Xu Rang’s hand holding the phone and said, “Don’t look at it, go to the exam room, you won’t be able to enter if you’re late.”
After he said this to Xu Rang, Jiang Juan turned around, took out his mobile phone, opened Xie Jingxian’s avatar, wrote down the correct answer to the two poems Xie Jingxian had just asked, and sent it to him.
After thinking about Xie Jingxian’s nature that he had discovered in the past few days, Jiang Juan added another sentence – “It was really memorized by me, not copy pasted from Baidu!”
Looking at the text messages that he had sent in the past, Jiang Juan suddenly felt a little sad.
Alas, this is the friend that he choose, of course, he can only get used to it.
What Jiang Juan didn’t know was that within a few minutes after he and Xie Jingxian parted, another thread went up in the Jincheng High School forum.
[Devil Teacher Xie] When you wake up, you have sex, and your children suddenly go on a trip!
1st Floor: Hahaha, this is what happens when top topper meets the school tyrant, their little daily life is so cute. Just now, Xie Jingxian asked Jiang Juan what was the next sentence after when he woke up was, what do you think Jiang Juan’s answer was?
2nd floor: The landlord is crazy, your title got censored.
3rd floor: Hahaha, the landlord is stupid.
4th Floor: Silly +1.
5th Floor: Hahaha, I’m neither crazy nor stupid, woo woo woo, they are so cute. I want to watch a 100 episodes of Xie And Jiang’s Daily Life!
6th floor: After the appraisal has been completed, the final verdict is that the landlord is crazy.
The thread was very lively. Soon, the one from the first floor jumped out and said again, “They are taking the sophomore exam today. Senior sisters, you should be there giving out the test papers, why are you still browsing the forum?”
Floor 36: To relax and be less nervous.
Floor 37: You are a step late, brother Xian had already asked him the question.
Floor 38: Such guts, is Brother Xian something you can call. Drag this person out and kill him!
Floor 39: Before you kill me, let me tell you what he asked.
Everyone kept asking questions, and the landlord on the 37th floor replied: “What’s the next sentence you must be proud of in life.”
55th floor: I know this question, don’t let the golden bottle face the moon, right?
Floor 56: I have a hunch that his answer will definitely be something weird.
Floor 57: He said that from now on the king will not go to court early, hahahahaha.
Seeing that, the downstairs floors laughed wildly, and of course there were some who went over board, but were quickly deleted by the landlord.
After chatting for a while, the track of the comments changed, and they began to worship the tyrant-scholar in the building Comments section, hoping that Xie Jingxian would bless them with good grades.
This scene shocked the newly enrolled juniors: “Are the seniors so superstitious?”
One of the senior sister tried to painstakingly pursued them: “I would rather believe it.”
The junior brothers and sisters expressed that they understood.
The bell rang, and the first paper which was Chinese of the second year of high school officially began. Jiang Juan’s question prediction was very accurate. He saw that two sentences of the ancient poems were asked, and even the composition topic was from his predicted ones.
After the exam, Xu Rang hugged Jiang Juan and cried, “Brother Juan, I didn’t deviate from the topic in my composition, and I wrote half of the ancient poetry dictation correctly. This time I will definitely be able to break through the fifty-point mark.”
Just, very sad.
Jiang Juan took out his mobile phone, and saw that Xie Jingxian had replied to him with a cheering on expression. He thought about it, it should not be sarcasm, and replied, “Let’s go, I’ll treat you to dinner. It’s the rice noodle shop in the back alley of the school…”
Compared to Jiang Juan and Xu Rang’s happiness, there was a group of people in the school forum who wanted to cry but had no tears.
The earlier thread was trending again at noon, but the style of painting Direction of comments in the building had changed abruptly.
Floor 178: I hate it so much, why did I enter this thread in the morning. Life is full of joy, and the king will not go to court early from now on. When you are awake, you will have sex, and when you are drunk, you will disperse. I had learned both the sentences, and I knew it so well, but in the end… I hate it so much!
Floor 179: Although you are right…but…the sister upstairs, you forgot to memorized the sentence that you must be happy in life.
Floor 180: Hahaha, why is this building so funny.
Floor 181st: Sisters who made mistakes in ancient poetry and dictation come to gather here.
After the 181st floor was built, a bunch of people lined up behind, and the scene was quite spectacular.
It is expectable how the teachers will collapse when the exam papers reach their hand.
Of course, these are all for later.
The days of the exam were intense, fulfilling, and fast. In the blink of an eye, the last exam was over.
When Jiang Juan returned to the classroom, the students in the class were rechecking the answers of the last exam. When he returned to his seat, he saw Bai Guang at the front desk peeking at him from time to time, as if hesitating to say something.
Jiang Juan lightly kicked Bai Guang’s stool and said, “Just say what you want to say.”
Bai Guang was startled, and Zhu Xu smiled beside him, “Brother Juan, today is Bai Guang’s birthday, and he wants to invite you to dinner together at night.”
Jiang Juan smiled and said, “Really, happy birthday.”
Bai Guang said thank you, and glanced at Xie Jingxian. Although he dared to ask Xie Jingxian questions these days, he was still a little embarrassed to invite Xie Jingxian to his birthday.
Jiang Juan knew that Bai Guang admired Xie Jingxian, so he smiled and said, “Leave Xie Jingxian to me.”
Bai Guang’s eyes lit up and he said, “Thank you.”
T/N:- First of all, I am extremely sorry for the long unannounced haitus. From today onwards I will start with the regular updates for TVVSH as well as DFSRA.
Secondly, I couldn’t find out whether the above mentioned ancient poem/phrases really exists or are just a work of fiction. In order to make it more understanding I flipped through a lot of Chinese to English dictionaries that were available online and tried to piece those words and their meanings together so that the translation can flow more smoothly. If any of you knows about those phrases, please let me know, so that I can do the relevant changes to the footnotes.
