Jiang Li’s unexpected reaction put the dorm teacher into an embarrassing situation. Little frictions between students were inevitable, so as long as things didn’t get too big, she usually turned a blind eye and considered the matter to be over.
After coming out of the grove, Jiang Li was about to return to the dormitory, but was stopped by Tong Yi, “There will be a PE exam in two days, followed by a mock exam one week after. The top thirty in the grade will receive scholarships bonus money.”
Jiang Li turned to the boy, “Thank you.”
Jiang Zhou’s eyes widened in anger, “You…”
“I think what you need to worry about now is whether he is willing to keep it a secret or not.” Jiang Li moved her gaze at a banyan tree not far away.
After ending the exchange with Tong Yi in a happy mood, Jiang Li took out a book of question banks and began to solve a page. For her, the top priority now was to prepare for the high school entrance examination. Her maternal uncle might refuse to recognize her, but she must enter the best high school at any cost.
Tong Yi put a baseball cap on his head and continued to sleep on the table. When he woke up, he realized that the person next to him was still doing the questions, so he couldn’t help but take a closer look.
Finished with her brief self-introduction, Jiang Li glanced at Teacher He, and then returned to her position after receiving the homeroom teacher’s permission.
It was only then that the class discovered that their new classmate’s personality seemed to be quite indifferent. She seemed to be not good at communicating with others.
Looking at the well-behaved and sensible student, Teacher He sat down with a gentle smile. “My surname is He. I’m your homeroom teacher and also teaches Chinese subject. I’ve contacted your dorm teacher just now, and she will come to take you to get your daily necessities and go through the formalities of entering the dorm.”
When Jiang Li returned with the glutinous rice cake, several students had already come to the classroom. Everyone was sitting in their respective seats, busy doing their own things.
As soon as Jiang Li entered the classroom, the boy sitting near the door heard the door open. Seeing the unfamiliar face, he put down the pen in his hand and asked in a friendly manner, “Are you perhaps entering the wrong classroom?”
“I don’t have a mobile phone,” Jiang Li confessed.
Tong Yi: …
The school rules did stipulate that students were not allowed to bring mobile phones on campus, but how many really complied these days? It turned out that his new deskmate was such a good girl, ah!
Director Li took the key handed by the boy, then turned his eyes to Jiang Li, “This kid is called Tong Yi, and you two will be classmates from now on.”
Jiang Li nodded obediently like any good student, then turned to look at the tall boy in front of her. At the same time, the description of ‘Tong Yi’ in the novel quickly appeared in her mind.
The car drove slowly and soon arrived at Minjiang International School amid the urban traffic. The school guard clearly recognized the Jiang family’s car and let them enter the campus smoothly. After getting off the car, Assistant Bai took Jiang Li to the office of Academic Affairs.
The Director of Teaching and Learning they met already had half his hair white, but he was full of energy. He looked at Jiang Li inquiringly, “Are you Mr. Jiang’s adopted daughter?”
