The weather in Haishi was uncertain. After New Year’s Eve, it rained heavily for more than half a month. When the rain stopped, it was time to start school.
When Gu Miao entered the classroom, the class was already full of people.
Today was the day of registration. Everyone was to come to the school to pick up a new textbook; after handing in their homework, they could go back.
Many people were making up their homework with their heads lowered, and their hands were moving pens very quickly. It was not very cold in the crowded class, but it was still damp after the rain stopped.
The seat next to Gu Miao was empty, and his heart seemed to be empty for no reason.
He sat in his seat and silently took out his homework from his bag.
The small class was extremely noisy, and the aftertaste of Xu Shi’s holiday had not dissipated, and they all gathered together and whispered.
“Hey, I just saw that the seats of Cheng Chu and Ye Feixue were vacant, have they been transferred to the key class?”
“It should be, hey, my goddess, just left, I don’t know what to do. Can I see her again?”
“Pfft, what are you thinking, if you have spare time, you might as well think about how to work hard to meet your goddess in the key class.”
“That should be unlikely. I was playing all the time during the holidays, and my homework was forgotten before I started copying it a few days ago.”
“Me too, hey, people who can study during the holidays are really strong.” The chattering sound of discussion got into Gu Miao’s ears. For some reason, those ears seemed to have automatic recognition ability. As soon as he heard Cheng Chu’s name, they stood up automatically.
Their topic changed quickly, and they jumped to a game the next second.
Gu Miao retracted his mind and stared at the book in front of him.
“Can’t be distracted anymore, this time, he must seize the opportunity for the school entrance examination.“
No one knew how hard it was for him this winter vacation. From the first day of the new year, he would get up almost before dawn to memorize words; review and preview the content of the next semester.
The winter night in Haishi was cold and damp. The windows in the room were a bit old and could not be closed tightly. From time to time, the icy wind mixed with the rain came in and slapped him on the face again and again.
He shivered from the cold, and put the few thick clothes he had on his body, but the cold wind still crept into his bones like a ghost.
The hand holding the pen had already suffered from several frostbites, but he lowered his head and wrote indifferently.
He couldn’t be separated from her for too long.
“If you don’t take this opportunity for the entrance exam, the next one will be after January.”
He couldn’t keep her waiting so long.
The podium was slapped a few times, and the monitor yelled at everyone to go downstairs to carry books. Immediately, more than half of the boys in the class left, and the lively classroom suddenly became deserted.
Gu Miao felt a little thirsty, so he took the kettle and walked out of the classroom.
There were not many people in the corridor. After he filled a pot of hot water, he raced back to the class.
But in the next second, he stopped.
On the stairs beside him, two boys were walking downstairs, leaning on the railings.
“Hey, is Cheng Chu back?”
“Yeah, didn’t you see her just now, sitting at the back?”
“I’m busy making up my homework, this time Yu Yan is happy. He saw Cheng Chu go; after that, he didn’t look right, and ran to the second floor every day, pretending to pass by just to take a look at her.”
“Yeah, I just saw that he was so happy that he couldn’t find his way.”
Gu Miao was holding a water glass. His hands tightened, his breathing was suffocated, and a layer of frost slowly surfaced on the bottom of his eyes.
It must be her classmate in the key class. She has known that person much longer than the two of them have known each other.
The dampness in the air seemed to penetrate his heart all of a sudden, and a touch of sourness gradually surfaced. He pursed his lips, and the steps under his feet became heavier.
Yu Yan, I don’t know what kind of person he is. In short, he must be better than him. At least his studies are much better than him. Otherwise, why would he stay in the key class?
By the end of school, the sourness in his heart not only hadn’t subsided, but it seemed to be getting stronger.
Rejecting Zhou Ran’s invitation to go with him, he sat alone in the empty classroom, buried his head, and read books for a long time like he was paralyzed.
It was not until the evening haze gradually spread into the classroom that he raised his head from the book as if he had just woken up from a dream.
Turning his neck, which was already sore and numb, he turned his head to look out the window.
The campus after the rain revealed beautiful scenery, and the crimson sunset on the horizon was like a veil of dream and mist, gently shrouding the entire campus.
Behind him, the classroom door was gently knocked on twice.
“Gu Miao, haven’t you left yet?” The girl’s sweet voice swayed in the beautiful haze, making Gu Miao’s heart tighten.
He turned around a little lost.
The evening wind was not cold, but brought a bit of gentleness. The broken hair on the girl’s cheeks was gently blown, and the clear peach blossom eyes seemed to be adorned with a little starlight.
She seems to have gained some weight, and her originally thin cheeks were rounded a little, but shy revealed a little naivety.
“The teacher in our class has been chatting a lot just after school. I thought you had left, but I just wanted to come and have a look, I didn’t expect you to be there.” The girl’s rosy mouth was opening and closing, chattering about what she had seen and heard today.
Gu Miao looked at her, only to feel that the restlessness in his heart was eased, and even the hands holding the pen were loosened.
“Do you still want to study?” The girl looked at the book on his desk, frowning in distress.
“No, no.” Gu Miao hurriedly shook his head and hesitated: “I, I’m getting ready to go home.” A smile appeared on the girl’s face like a flash of spring, her beautiful peach eyes completed the crescent moon, and her voice, light and moving: “Then let’s go.”
T/N: That’s the chapter for today. My baby, Gu Miao, is so cute when he’s jealous.
