After 5 o’clock in the afternoon, the teacher’s meeting ended. The school leaders and teachers left the meeting room one after another. They walked to the teaching building that was full of people at the moment.
“It is rare that I don’t have to worry about those kids for half an afternoon. It is so relaxing.”
“I don’t know how the group of people in my class are doing with the cleaning. I have to change the area later.”
The teachers were talking in groups of two or three. Zhou Fang fell toward the end of the team and a wave of apprehension surged in her heart.
The school leaders were checking the students’ hygiene and they would soon arrive on the floor where the third class was. It wasn’t known what the students would do.
Zhou Fang guessed that there might be a conflict between everyone and Pei Qingyuan, so she told the usually obedient labor committee member in advance to cooperate well with the class monitor. However, she still wasn’t sure what these children were thinking.
The teacher next to her saw her solemn expression and elbowed her, whispering, “Teacher Zhou, is that transfer student in your class?”
“Ah.” Zhou Fang’s mind returned. “Yes.”
“Is he getting along with the students in your class?” The teacher had obviously heard the gossip that was circulating on campus today. “It is really troublesome. You have to worry a lot about these kids, right?”
“That’s right.” Zhou Fang let out a long sigh. “He was elected as the class monitor yesterday…”
Before she could finish speaking, the school leader in front of her stopped. It wasn’t known what he saw, but he was silent for a moment before asking, “Is this a student in the third class of the senior year?”
Zhou Fang was shocked in her heart. She quickly took a few steps forward. She thought that what she had been worried about had really happened.
Then she saw a student crouching at the door of the men’s restroom, wiping the tiles. Another student next to him was directing him. “The second tile in the lower right corner hasn’t been wiped clean yet.”
Zhou Fang almost thought she had seen it incorrectly and instinctively rubbed her eyes.
The study committee member, Lin Zihai was obediently cleaning under the supervision of Pei Qingyuan.
The school leader looked around and nodded with satisfaction. “The students in the third class of senior year are very good. They can be so focused on cleaning so they will definitely make great progress in learning.”
Compared to the noise and shouts of the other classes, the third class was exceptionally quiet.
Everyone stayed at their posts and worked hard. Occasionally, some people talked in a low voice. Then after they finished talking, they worked harder. They had obviously exchanged experiences.
If the teachers had come closer, they might’ve heard what the students were saying.
“Lin Zihai is a traitor! He is cleaning the toilet so seriously. Who is he showing off to?”
“Is he sick? He told us not to cooperate with the class monitor, but as a result, he fell to his knees first. I am so angry. Did he deliberately play us?”
The anger of these unlucky students had nowhere to vent. They could only vent it on their rags and brooms.
The school leader looked at Pei Qingyuan, who was supervising them well, and asked, “Are you the class monitor of the third class? What is your name?”
Pei Qingyuan replied politely, “Hello, Teacher. I am Pei Qingyuan, the class monitor of the third class of the senior year.”
The school leader had heard this name before. He remembered that it was a student sent in by Pei Minghong, a well-known entrepreneur in the province. He asked in a kind tone, “It turned out to be Mr Pei. How has your life been in the 2nd High School during this time? Are you still adapting?”
Pei Qingyuan’s expression didn’t change as he replied, “The 2nd High School is very good. The students are taking care of me, especially Lin Zihai, the study committee member in our class. During this general cleaning, he took the initiative to support my work. He proposed to clean the toilet next to the corridor and shared the more tiring work for everyone.”
Hearing this, the group of teachers praised Lin Zihai, who was diligently cleaning the tiles.
Lin Zihai never expected that Pei Qingyuan would reverse things right in front of him. He was angry but he didn’t dare show it in front of everyone.
He had just wanted to resist Pei Qingyuan, who annoyed him to death. He hadn’t expected the group of teachers to come, making him unable to express his suffering and anger. He could only force himself to show an awkward yet polite smile.
Looking at the harmonious picture in front of her, Zhou Fang was almost moved.
It seemed she was being paranoid yesterday.
Zhou Fang immediately told the school leader, “Lin Zihai usually has good grades and solves problems for teachers. He has a good sense of teamwork and takes great care of the new students. Yesterday, he offered to let Pei Qingyuan, who has excellent overall qualities, to be the class leader.”
The students of the third class cleaning the glass next to them heard Teacher Zhou’s words. For some reason, their hands became more energetic and it felt like they were wiping with a momentum that was incompatible with the glass.
For the first time, Lin Zihai felt that the teacher’s praise was so difficult.
He was afraid he wouldn’t be able to hold back his expression, so he gritted his teeth, turned around and wiped the tiles hard. He created a hot labor environment with these students who were also full of heart.
Seeing this, the school leader stepped forward with satisfaction. “Then we don’t bother the students of the third class while they are doing the cleaning. Teacher Zhou has taught well and trained the students well…”
The group continued to walk toward the other classes. The praised Zhou Fang was radian. As she passed by Lin Zihai’s side, she encouraged him in a low voice, “Well done, keep it up!”
Lin Zihai’s face turned dark and he was about to vomit in his heart.
If time could be restarted, he definitely wouldn’t have played with his phone yesterday.
Which traitor was it who defected to Pei Qingyuan and snitched on him?!
If he found out then he would have nothing to do with this traitor!
Ji Tong, the little robot trapped on the soft recliner, sneezed happily.
The breeze was blowing and the grass was green. He was lazily basking in the sun with his cute plush doll in his arms while enjoying the TV content.
Ji Tong deliberately froze and enlarged Lin Zihai’s distorted expression. It simply looked too good.
He was now leisurely staying in Pei Qingyuan’s emotional zone and had officially started his host’s emotional transformation plan. He wanted to add some things to this place to see if he could fundamentally calm the host’s emotions in the future.
At this moment, Pei Qingyuan might not be talking to the system but he could vaguely feel a happy emotion.
He didn’t know what was going on in his mind, but he could inexplicably be sure that Ji Tong was currently in a good mood.
Along with him, Pei Qingyuan was also in a bright mood.
Pei Qingyuan walked through the classroom and toward the other cleaning areas that the third class was in charge of. It was in order to check the progress of their labor.
His system seemed to enjoy watching these scenes.
Thanks to Ji Tong’s instigation, Pei Qingyuan didn’t participate in today’s cleaning. He walked around to criticize others, which was quite relaxing. IT could be called a leisurely walk compared to the gray-faced students at this time.
The slender boy in the sun was handsome and dazzling. Ji Tong seized the opportunity to secretly take a few precious photos of the host. He put them in his electronic photo album collection before sending a message to Fang Hao to teach him.
[System 0587: Xiao Hao, I think it isn’t enough to be crazy. You need to outwit them properly.]
For example, the host did a great job of sowing discord today.
Fang Hao, who was in a daze in the consciousness space like him, quickly replied to the message.
[System 0499: Oh.]
[System 0499: Why aren’t you calling me Brother Hao?]
…What a naive elementary school student.
[System 0587: Xiao Hao Xiao Hao Xiao Hao Xiao Hao Xiao%&@#]
A happy day ended with a quarrel between elementary school students.
On the second day, Pei Qingyuan basically achieved peaceful coexistence with his classmates. The other students thought Lin Zihai had taken the lead in rebelling and no longer took the initiative to provoke trouble again. Lin Zihai’s love for the new student was already known by all the teachers in the school. It made him afraid to do any small tricks and he simply focused on finding that nasty traitor.
All in all, no one knew what had happened except for Pei Qingyuan and Ji Tong. They just vaguely acknowledged the new class monitor.
In the evening, Pei Qingyuan went to the basketball team for trial training according to the time agreed with Fen Chengze.
Fu Chengze had talked to everyone in advance so the members of the basketball team treated Pei Qingyuan with a friendly attitude. This friendliness under the threat of force quickly became heartfelt admiration when Pei Qingyuan shot his fifth 3 pointer.
The soles of his shoes hit the smooth sports floor with a palpitating sound. The figure that constantly dodged and jumped on the court was light and powerful. Most of the muscular men on the basketball team were dumbfounded. Only Ji Tong sighed quietly while watching.
His host was good at sports, studying and was smart. Unfortunately, he had a bad life experience. It was worthy of him being beautiful and strong.
Pei Qingyuan’s basketball level was quite good, which shocked the watching coach. He thought that this seemingly quiet student was just going through the motions. He didn’t expect that he was really a good seedling.
Coach Xu couldn’t help patting Fu Chengze’s head and praised him. “This kid has finally done something serious. I think we have a chance in this city competition.”
Fu Chengze was still dazed by Pei Qingyuan’s flowing operations. He was stunned for a while before touching his head and stupidly saying, “It is thanks to his brother…”
If Ji Tong hadn’t taken the initiative to stop him that morning, perhaps he would still be trying to find a way to vent his anger for Pei Yan.
Coach Xu listened to him telling the general reason and realized there was a story behind him. He shook his head emotionally and decided to care a bit more about this good seedling.
So after Pei Qingyuan finished the trial and walked off the basketball court, the first thing he heard was, “Xiao Pei, bring your brother over to play when he has time.”
Pei Qingyuan: “?”
He quickly made a list of snacks to bleed from Fu Chengze.
Hot pot grilled skewers, spicy crayfish and the beer and Coke he missed in his dreams all depended on Fu Chengze.
Pei Qingyuan’s growth rate was too low so Ji Tong’s human form could only last for one hour every day.
Time was precious and should be used wisely.
For 20 minutes in the morning, he would sit on the back seat of Pei Qingyuan’s bicycle to buy the savory crepes. After the two of them ate together, he would find an inconspicuous place to disappear and return to his host’s consciousness space.
For 40 minutes at night, Ji Tong decided to show up near the end of the basketball team’s training so he could admire the vigorous posture of the male high school students in a relatively relaxed atmosphere. In addition, he would work hard to empty Fu Chengze’s wallet before accompanying Pei Qingyuan home.
What a perfect plan.
On the first night when Pei Qingyuan officially joined the basketball team, Ji Tong calculated the time and made sure there were no problems with his carefully chosen appearance. Then he took a deep breath and walked toward the gymnasium.
This was the first time he had taken the initiative to get along with so many people as a child. He was quite nervous.
“Is this the basketball team?”
A clear voice was heard from the entrance of the gymnasium.
The training was almost over. Everyone’s attention was no longer so concentrated. Once they heard this special voice, they immediately turned their heads and looked over.
Beside the high gate of the gymnasium, there was a small figure wearing a cream-white short-sleeved shirt and blue uniform pants. There was a yellow hat on his head and he looked both serious and cute.
He might not be able to be the handsome man in black for the time being, but Ji Tong vowed to become the most handsome kindergarten student.
Pei Qingyuan was resting on the sidelines. His thin t-shirt was completely soaked and he raised his hand to wipe the sweat from his forehead with a towel. Then he saw the familiar figure out of the corner of his eye.
In the eyes of everyone, the little boy carrying a schoolbag looked at him seriously. The boy’s eyes lit up and he stood on tiptoe to wave to him happily.
“Brother, class is over and I am waiting for you to go home together.”
