Chapter 18 – I’m Angry (2)
In those three years of high school, Xu Chang was a school figure. In addition to his good grades and handsome looks, he also had a killer skill: he sings well and can play the guitar.
At that time, boys and girls were young and vigorous, and it was popular to form bands on campus. The leaders of their school are also trendy and do not stop students engaging in art activities in their spare time. Besides, the band leader of their school at that time was Xu Chang, who had good quality and excellent in learning, the school had no reason to object.
Xu Chang is the singer and guitarist of the band. He will go to the music room to rehearse with his band mates during his free time.
Qin Xiangnan heard that Xu Chang sang very well, this news was from her friend Li Susu.
At that time, Li Susu was obsessed with Xu Chang as most girls were, and they secretly went to the music room to listen to them rehearsing. At first, Li Susu wanted to take Qin Xiangnan but Qin Xiangnan was naturally unwilling. After several invitations were rejected, Li Susu gave up and every time she go to watch them rehearse, she will take other sisters instead of her.
Only the two of them knew about Xu Chang tutoring her. She didn’t even tell Li Susu because Li Susu has a big mouth. If she knew about it, then the whole school would probably hunt her down.
In order to protect herself, Qin Xiangnan kept the same distance with Xu Chang in school as before.
Although Li Susu knew that Qun Xiangnan had no interest in Xu Chang, she still told her about Xu Chang from time to time, just like gossiping about celebrities.
“Qin Xiangnan, we just went to listen to Xu Chang rehearsing, God, I didn’t expect him to be so good at singing.”
Qin Xiangnan said coldly, “Is that so?”
“Qin Xiangnan, are you a woman?” Li Susu was almost upset.
“Of course I am.”
“I don’t believe that there is a girl that has no interest in Xu Chang.”
“I’m really not interested. What I am interested in is how to solve this problem.”
Li Susu knows that she doesn’t like doing the questions, she smiled evilly: “Qin Xiangnan, you have been acting strange lately. Didn’t you hate doing these questions? Why did your score suddenly improved so much recently? Is it possible that you…”
Qin Xiangnan was surprised. Would she be found out?
“Could it be… what…” Qin Xiangnan’s voice was shaking.
“Could it be that you… you are secretly cramming after school and didn’t tell me?”
Qin Xiangnan breathed a sigh of relief and gave a laugh.
“Li Susu, did you fail the exam? Don’t you want to go to college? If you can’t go to college, then you don’t deserve Xu Chang~”
Li Susu was stunned by what Qin Xiangnan said, then she buried her head on her books.
Life is like this. Everyday during her high school, her life is very boring except for some gossips that adds some joy. With the help of Xu Chang, Qin Xiangnan also did her best and achieved a leap in her achievements.
Sophomore semester soon ended and her brother Qin Xiangbei did not disappoint everyone and was admitted to Qin Xiangnan’s high school.
The two children performed so well, Qin Chaoming and Zhou Mei were also very pleased. Their gratitude to Xu Chang was very evident.
After the summer vacation of the second year of high school, the final year soon arrived.
In the new semester, in order to welcome the new students, the school organized an orientation party. With the exception of the freshmen, two performance are required for each class.
It’s very easy for Xu Chang to make a show with his band, and their whole class was wondering who will be the other one that will perform.
Their class teacher was surnamed Yu, a bald old man in his fifties. They all called him “Lao Yu”.
Lao Yu – Old Yu
Lao Yu’s brainstorming for the other party was very awkward. After all, he didn’t know anything about the performing arts. Lao Yu was also their language teacher. When they were in their class that day, Lao Yu had a hard time.
“Dear students, the director pressured me today and asked who will be the other that will perform in our class for the orientation party. Think about it, which student can come up with the same talent as Xu Chang? After all, this is a matter of showing that our class is no worse than others.”
The class was silent.
“Students, don’t hide your talents. If you don’t take the initiative, I will have to call someone out…” Lao Yu was helpless.
“That being the case, then I won’t embarrass you. I thought about it, our class has Xu Chang’s band, and it’s already very good. For the second performance, I will arrange a poem recitation, cough, this poem recitation, you will perform the song “Ode to the Motherland” .
 Ode to the Motherland is a famous patriotic song of the People’s Republic of China, written and music composed by Wang Shen during the period immediately after the founding of the People’s Republic of China (1949–1951). It is sometimes honored as “the second national anthem” of the PRC. (credits: wikipedia)
They didn’t wait for the old man to finish and they just laughed.
“Poetry recitation, I really want to laugh out loud…”
“It’s so shameful…”
“This is what Lao Yu has thought?”
The old man didn’t expect his students to be so repulsive of his idea. His face was blue, and he didn’t know what to say.
“Teacher Yu, I can dance…”
After hearing this, the students calmed down and looked at the girl.
Qin Xiangnan will always remember that moment. The girl named Zhao Cancan, as her name implied, smiled brightly like the sun…
