Lu Shen looked at him, “It’s okay.
I am not averse to eating your leftovers.”

“Why are you…” Bian Shengjian didn’t know how to react for a while, and looked at him for a few seconds before he slapped his chopsticks angrily.
 “Don’t eat it, I’ll buy you whatever else you want to eat.

“But it’s my card.” Lu Shen said.

“Scram!” Bian Shengjian pointed at him, “Get out.”

Lu Shen laughed for a while before stopping, wiped his mouth and stood up, “Okay, stop talking.
I’ll take you to class.”

The two of them were pretty quiet on their walk to class.
For starters, Bian Shengjian was preoccupied with acquainting himself with the route conditions.
Second, he really didn’t know how to communicate with Lu Shen again.
He was terrified that if he (LS) opened his lips, some strange words might come out and startled him to the ground.

Thankfully, after Shengjian approached somewhere at the rear of the teaching facility, he noticed that the No.
4 middle school’s teaching building was rather well constructed.
At the very least, it wasn’t the type of damaged building that would fall to the ground just by standing upstairs and stomping his feet.
Even though the architectural style was not as beautiful as his former school, the bougainvillea (triangle plum) dangling from the edge of each story, weaving together in a charming pattern, appeared like a flowing crimson ocean from a distance.

“Our classroom is on the fourth floor.
The middle building is for the second years, the front and back are for the first and third years respectively.” Lu Shen pointed with his finger, “The school has regulations, and it is best not to stray between classes at ordinary times.”

“I don’t have that interest.” Bian Shengjian said, turned his head and glanced, followed Lu Shen into the building in the middle, and asked casually while climbing the stairs, “By the way, the adviser of this class…   .”

“Bian Shengjian?” A sudden shout came from behind.
Bian Shengjian spun around and saw a middle-aged guy with a briefcase at the bottom of the stairs, clutching his spectacles and smiling at him.
“Am I right? Such a big handsome guy.”

Just as Bian Shengjian turned his head back, he found that Lu Shen had disappeared by his side at some point.
He had to retrace his steps down the stairs alone to stand in front of the man, “Hello, teacher.
I just transferred from another school.”

“I know, your father has told me again and again.” The man smiled and led him aside, his tone was quite soft, “Have you put away your luggage and the likes? Remember to tell me if you need anything.
I’m still pondering about your situation today.”

“Really?” Bian Shengjian twitched the corners of his mouth.

“By the way, I almost forgot to introduce myself.” He said and patted Bian Shengjian’s shoulder, “My name is Tan Dafa, and I’m the class adviser of class four.
You can also call me Cai Zong or Lao Tan just like your classmates.”

(t/n Cai Zong- Chief Financial Officer; Cai-wealth; Zong-always; Lao-old)

“Wealth…is always good.” Bian Shengjian was stunned for a few seconds after realizing the connection between the two names, and he couldn’t help but laugh.
“I wish you a great fortune every day.”

“That’s not true.
What we do as teachers is to hold an iron rice bowl,” Lao Tan also laughed a few times.
“Those kids like to scream.
Anyhow, I can’t control them.” 

(t/n Iron rice bowl-is a Chinese term used to refer to an occupation with guaranteed job security, as well as steady income and benefits)

Bian Shengjian found that he liked Lao Tan’s temperament quite a bit.
Seeing that he was much more talkative than the resolute female class adviser back at his old class .
Not to mention that Lao Tan stood here and chatted with him for a long time, but didn’t even mention his past and the things he did at his old school.
Just this attitude alone made him feel completely at ease.

“Come on, I’ll take you to class.
It starts today.” Lao Tan took him upstairs with him, and his tone suddenly became solemn as he walked.
“By the way, Shengjian, I want to explain to you the school rules of our No.
4 middle school.
You must listen carefully.”

“Okay Mr.
Tell me.” Bian Shengjian looked at him.

“First, our No.
4 middle school does not carry out evening self-study except for those in third year.” Lao Tan said slowly, almost word by word, “Second, after seven o’clock in the evening, all non-boarding students must all leave the school premises.
Those who live in the dormitory must return to the dormitory for self-study.
During this period, they aren’t allowed to leave the dormitory building.”

“Why?” Bian Shengjian frowned.
He instantly remembered the access control and alarm that Lu Shen had mentioned to him last night.

“Third,” Lao Tan didn’t answer him right away, but slowly finished reciting the remaining school rules, “It is strictly forbidden for students to approach the back mountain and the pond (lake) of the school.
You must have also seen the warning sign?”

“I saw.” Bian Shengjian nodded, “But why…”

“Alas,” Lao Tan patted him on the shoulder, “In short, these are the rules of the school.
Since you are here, you have to abide by them.
You don’t need to bother about the rest.”

“Okay.” Although Bian Shengjian wanted to say something more, Lao Tan had already brought him to the door of the classroom at some point, and many eyes immediately glanced over.

“Come on, this is our class four.” Lao Tan escorted him to the podium’s edge.
When Bian Shengjian entered the classroom, his initial thought was not at the stares aimed at him, but of the unusually small number of students present.
The back was almost empty with two rows of vacant tables and chairs.

“Are all here?” He couldn’t help but ask sideways.

“Yes, there are only 32 people in our class.” Lao Tan said and clapped his hands, “Classmates! Let’s put aside the things on our hands first, and let’s welcome the new student!”

The entire class erupted in applause.
Bian Shengjian felt a lot of eyes stuck to his face even without raising his head, as well as the bouts of tension caused by discussions under the podium.
He stood there for at least 30 seconds before turning to face Lao Tan, “I’ll now introduce myself?”

“Okay, go ahead.” Lao Tan froze for a moment then nodded.

“My name is Bian Shengjian.
I transferred from another school and nothing else.” Bian Shengjian said.

Bian Shengjian was irritated when he heard a little whistle from the audience, but as he lifted his head, he saw Lu Shen’s beaming eyes seated at the rear of the classroom.

“Shit.” He immediately looked away.

“Come on, Shengjian.
You can now step down and find a seat for yourself.” Lao Tan said kindly.

“Okay.” Bian Shengjian walked off from the podium, deliberately avoiding the group of girls who were staring at him with the most intense gaze just now, and instinctively went straight to the back as per usual habit.
He accidentally looked at Lu Shen again–

“Come and sit with me!” Lu Shen mouthed at him exaggeratedly.

Bian Shengjian glanced at him and saw that there was indeed a vacant seat next to him, but there were also many other unoccupied chairs.
He didn’t want to deal with Lu Shen up close.
He hesitated and found a seat further away from him.

Lu Shen remained staring at him with interest, and his expression upon witnessing him take a seat was not one of disappointment.
He simply grinned at him and remarked, “We met again.”

We met again.” Bian Shengjian also said while looking at him.
