Chapter 809: Reminiscing about the Good Times (10)

Translator: Paperplane Editor: DarkGem

"I hated studying maths in school. It was difficult as hell," said Qiao Anhao, unable to help feeling regret whilst looking at the formulas she had no clue about now whatsoever. She then suddenly thought about something little that had happened in school, and she couldn't help but excitedly share it with Lu Jinnian. "Speaking of maths, I remember a magical thing that happened to me."

Lu Jinnian placed a single hand elegantly on the window sill, and turned his head to ask her, "What?"

"It was during the first half of the second year of high school. Didn't Class One and Class Three have the same teacher for maths? You should know, that teacher had a special thing. After every other month, he liked to set a test. I may not have understood everything in maths, but at least I knew most of it... All besides the parabola. It gave me a headache just looking at it.

"When it came to the test on parabola, Class Three was the first to take the test, so I told Qiao Anxia to secretly copy the answers for me in advance. Then, in the evening, I could go find Brother Jiamu and get the right ones, so the next morning during the test I could just write down the answers. In the end, guess what happened?"

As Qiao Anhao said this, she wore a hint of disbelief on her own face. "At the time, I was in P.E. and when I went back to the classroom, school had coincidentally ended. I didn't even have a chance to find Qiao Anxia for the answers when I saw a test paper in my desk drawer! Ay... The paper was full of answers... Say, who do you think would have had the foresight to put their test paper into my drawer...."

Qiao Anhao tilted her head and thought for a moment before saying, "Perhaps someone in Class Three had a crush on me? But if you have a crush, wouldn't you give a love letter? You shouldn't give a test paper... If they put it in the wrong drawer... Aiya... Anyways, no matter what, Lu Jinnian... Let me tell you, that was the only time I ever got a perfect score in maths!"

Even though Qiao Anhao cheated, she couldn't help but cheerfully bring up her perfect score.

Lu Jinnian looked at her proud little face, and couldn't help but let out a chuckle. "What a coincidence, that was the only time I ever got zero at maths."

"Eh?" Qiao Anhao was left dazed for a while, having no idea what he meant.

Lu Jinnian reached his hand out and patted her head, then explained, "That test paper... The classroom was empty, as you all were at P.E., so I put it in your drawer.."

"Ah?" With a light shriek of surprise, Qiao Anhao asked in response, "You put it there?"

"En," responded Lu Jinnian gently.

"How did you know that I needed the answers to the test?"

As they headed towards the stairs hand-in-hand, they reminisced about what had happened back then.

After a while, he replied, "I overheard what you said to Qiao Anxia."

That afternoon, before the two girls had walked into the classroom, Qiao Anhao had pulled her sister's clothes and said, "Remember to write down the answers of this afternoon's maths test."

Coincidentally, it had been Lu Jinnian's turn to wipe the blackboard, so he overheard that conversation.

At the time, he had the top grades in maths in Class Three. After every test, he was the one to collect all the tests.

So, that time, he didn't submit his own. When everyone had left the classroom for P.E., he shoved his test into her drawer.
