Tan Mengmeng stayed for two seconds as if struck by lightning, and then realized that the phone was facing her.
In other words, the words that the two people on the opposite side saw were upside down.
Ye Cheng’s eyes floated down, saying that it was too late, and Tan Mengmeng saw the waiter walking over in an apron.
For the first time, she felt that the image of Haidilao’s waiter was as brilliant as a savior.
Then regardless of the 3721, he suddenly raised his hand and shouted, “Here and here! I’m celebrating my birthday today!”
Haidilao at noon was when the crowd gathered, and the waiters scattered in all corners raised their ears and looked at the guest who took the initiative to call out his birthday.
The waiter who came to her immediately understood and said with a standard smile: “Good beauty, please wait a moment.”
Taking advantage of the distraction of the two people on the opposite side, Tan Mengmeng quickly pulled the phone back.
Her little heart fluttered, trying her best to pretend to be calm to hide her gaffe.
The two were obviously out of state, and didn’t have time to see her small movements.
“Today is your birthday? Why didn’t you tell me earlier.” Ye Cheng said in surprise.
They didn’t prepare anything and seemed a little rude.
Lu Xiao chewed on the fish skin, and said vaguely, “That’s right, girl, you’re out of your mind.”
“Haha, didn’t I just remember this, it’s the same when I live here.” Tan Mengmeng’s sweat dripped down her forehead, she pulled the corners of her mouth stiffly, and forced a smile.
A few minutes later, a large wave of waiters came with carts and signs.
Those who have spent their birthdays in Haidilao understand that battle.
“Little beauty, I wish you a happy birthday and a happy day–” the duty manager took the lead and shouted, and smiled and put the little crown on Tan Mengmeng’s head.
Then, turned around and instructed everyone: “1, 2, 3, get up!”
All the waiters were well trained and sang loudly: “Say goodbye to all troubles and hi to all joys…”
The singing was deafening and resounded through the store.
All the people in Haidilao looked over and laughed, and many of them took their mobile phones to shoot videos.
Lu Xiao and Ye Cheng lowered their heads in tacit understanding, pretending they couldn’t hear or see, hoping that no one would notice them.
Tan Mengmeng was about to cry, a group of strangers surrounded you embarrassingly, and a group of strangers watched your reaction like a monkey.
Damn, this is the real social death scene.
She never wanted to come to Haidilao again in her life.
After experiencing the five-minute birthday greetings from Haidilao employees, the three fell into a strange silence again.
Lu Xiao didn’t celebrate his birthday here either. When he came last time, he was still laughing at another table for “being birthday”.
In the end, it was Ye Cheng who raised his glass to break the embarrassment, and the only adult at the table picked up his demeanor: “Mengmeng, I wish you a happy birthday and progress in your studies.”
Lu Xiao also followed the trend and raised his glass: “Happy birthday, uh, get off the list soon.”
“Thank you, thank you.” Tan Mengmeng clinked glasses with them tremblingly, and drank the sour plum juice with tears in her eyes.
Lu Xiao ate three plates of ice cream and hot pot that day. Halfway through the afternoon stroll with them, he went to the toilet with honor.
The following weekend was perfect, and when he got home, he spent most of the day on the toilet.
I did not suffer from love, but suffered from diarrhea.
During class on Monday, Hua Wangchun announced in class that Xu Chao would be back next week.
Everyone immediately cheered, as if they were finally leaving the evil mother-in-law and returning to their mother’s arms.
Hua Wangchun shook his head helplessly: “You guys really like him, but don’t be too happy, it is the best reward for him that you can take the exam well. The exam has always been easy one year and difficult one year. It’s harder than last year, and your class doesn’t know if you can get a few straight A’s.”
If you can get all A’s in the exam, you can get extra points in the college entrance examination.
If you look at it in the attached middle school, basically there are only two or three in the whole class that are not all A’s.
And here, it would be nice to have two or three all-Aces.
Underneath he whispered: “Brother Orange will definitely be able to get all A’s.”
“Yu Kun is also a little hopeful. It would be good for me to have two A’s.”
“I feel that I can usually take about 90 points in the test, so it shouldn’t be too difficult.”
“Just our paper… how can it be compared with the proficiency test?”
Hua Wangchun continued: “This month is about to enter the sprint period, and there will be three mock exams next, so please review them well. Also, while you are focusing on the subjects of the general examination, you must not fall behind the progress of the main subjects. Feel free to give me any advice, other things are not important, just try your best to deal with the exam.”
“Okay, teacher.” Everyone replied in unison.
After class, when Hua Wangchun walked to the stairs with the book in his arms, Ye Cheng’s voice came from behind him.
“Teacher, wait.” He trotted over and stopped Hua Wangchun.
“Is something wrong?” Hua Wangchun turned to look at him.
Ye Cheng said, “I want to talk to you about the mock exam.”
Hua Wangchun put the book on the railing and motioned for him to continue.
Ye Cheng didn’t beat around the bush, and went straight to the point: “I did their exam paper in the attached middle school before, and it’s quite different from our own.”
The papers in the attached middle school are much more difficult than the exams, and even the students in the top class can hardly get high marks when they do the papers in their own school.
This kind of “devil training” not only guarantees the improvement of overall grades, but also allows students to stay calm in the examination room, because questions that are more difficult than this are commonplace for them.
He tried his best to tactfully say: “I want to suggest whether our school should adjust the difficulty of the mock exam accordingly. In fact, it doesn’t need to be too difficult, as long as it is close to the exam.”
If the difficulty of the exam is compared to three stars, then the simulated paper in the attached middle school is five stars, and the simulated paper in the thirteenth high school… at most one and a half.
Hua Wangchun nodded and said, “Xiao Ye, I am very pleased that you can make such a suggestion. However, this is not a problem that can be solved by adjusting the difficulty of the paper.”
He sighed, very helpless: “It’s not like you don’t know our level. As the difficulty of this paper goes up, those children are even less confident. To give a very simple example, I rectified the mathematics final exam paper a few years ago. Do you know how much the number one math test in the second year of high school was? Only eighty-five points.”
He drew two numbers.
“What you mentioned we discussed in the meeting. On the one hand, it is the problem of the students, and on the other hand, the assistant teachers also have problems. For example, they don’t know the level of all the students, and there is no way to change the difficulty of the questions to suit the exam. Hey, you are in the attached middle school. If you have been there, you may not understand our difficulties very well.”
Ye Cheng said seriously: “I understand, it’s not entirely the teacher’s fault. The geography teacher in our class has to teach six classes at the same time, and the teachers cannot be allocated at all.”
There are a total of four geography teachers in the whole grade, and each of them is busy all day.
Chemistry teachers have fewer teachers, only three.
Hua Wangchun didn’t expect him to be considerate, and said a little moved: “It’s the first time I’ve seen a student like you who is so sensible and considers the school.”
“Mr. Hua, in fact, you can also take some measures to strengthen the interaction between teachers and students, such as asking students to fill out questionnaires, or using a system to analyze everyone’s mistakes.” Ye Cheng said sincerely, “Our class is not that bad, No. 13 Middle School. It’s not that bad either. Take your time, these problems will be solved bit by bit.”
He could see that it was not because the students lacked confidence, but because the leaders themselves had little confidence in the school.
No student has ever said such a thing to Hua Wangchun. He tried his best to suppress his emotions and look at him.
Ye Cheng added: “Finally, regarding the mock paper for the exam, if you believe me, I can help the teacher to formulate the questions together. I know the style of the questions in the attached middle school very well, as well as the learning situation of most of the students in our class. Maybe it can help the teachers.”
Hua Wangchun was greatly shocked.
Students participating in the questions of the mock papers, let alone in the thirteenth high school, is unprecedented in the city of Jeonnam.
He thought for a moment and said, “Xiaoye, why don’t you do this? I will convene the grade group for a meeting on this matter. How about you come to listen together in the afternoon?”
Ye Cheng nodded, “You can decide, I can.”
Hua Wangchun patted him on the shoulder and said, “I would like to express my gratitude again. Thank you for thinking so much about the school and your classmates.”
He had an intuition that Ye Cheng was much more mature than his actual age.
“You are too kind.” Ye Cheng said.
In fact, he is not selfless dedication, no selfishness at all.
Why consider so much?
Because in this school, in this class, and among these classmates, there is Lu Xiao.
How could he just let it go.
In the afternoon, Hua Wangchun held a temporary grade group meeting in the conference room.
There were all the associate teachers in the meeting, and Ye Cheng moved a chair and sat next to him.
The history teacher is a middle-aged woman. She usually likes him very much. She walked over and patted him and said, “Xiao Ye, are you here to be a recorder?”
Ye Cheng smiled, without nodding or shaking his head.
Soon, people will arrive.
Hua Wangchun cleared his throat and said, “I’m sorry, I called you here temporarily because I have something to ask for your opinion.”
He glanced at the quiet Ye Cheng and said, “Let me introduce you first. This is my student, Ye Cheng.”
Ye Cheng stood up and bowed to the teachers.
The teachers all laughed.
“No introduction, we all know each other.”
“The ‘facade’ of our thirteenth middle school, what else need to be introduced.”
“Little Leaf’s mid-term exam is amazing, and the objective history questions get full marks. Do you dare to believe it?”
“My God, don’t say it, I envy you every day for being able to bring such students.”
Hua Wangchun interrupted everyone’s discussion and said, “What I want to say is that it has something to do with him. Everyone has seen Ye Cheng’s grades. The teachers of some subjects in Class 20, let’s talk about it.”
The history teacher preemptively said: “Little Leaf has a 97 in the history test, and only a few points are deducted for the big questions.”
The teacher of politics said: “Politics has a score of 95. I have already approved it very strictly, but the child’s objective questions are all correct. It can only be said that the foundation is really solid.”
Other teachers reported their scores one after another. Except for the part with subjective questions, Ye Cheng’s scores were all close to full marks.
The deduction of points for subjective questions is not because of his faulty answers, but because the school stipulates that they should not give full marks as much as possible.
The political teacher said repeatedly: “Actually, I really want to give full marks to the last few questions. He can answer every test correctly, and he remembers every word in the book. I have never seen such a good student.”
“It seems that everyone has fully affirmed his ability.” Hua Wangchun said with no expression.
“Xiaoye’s ability is definitely strong, and he should be able to get all A’s in the exam.”
Hua Wangchun said, “Ye Cheng previously attended the Affiliated High School, and you all know it. Do you know how many parallel classes were the worst in the Affiliated High School last year, and how many got all A’s?”
Someone replied: “I remember this, 80%, this data surprised me at the time.”
“Then how many A’s are in the best class in our school?” Hua Wangchun looked at him sharply.
Everyone looked at each other, began to understand what he meant, and fell silent.
Hua Wangchun continued: “Many of your teachers have done the simulation papers of the attached middle school, and you should understand where we are wrong. Usually lazily and lax, it is useless to sharpen the gun.”
His tone gradually entered a state of criticism at meetings, the tone that leaders are used to.
“There are still two months before the general exam. These mock exams are very, very important. You must all cheer up and study the questions of past general exams carefully, and don’t give me those mentally handicapped questions just to fool the score.”
He said, slamming the stack of papers on the table,
“Who was the founding emperor of the Qing Dynasty? Can this kind of question appear in the exam? Xu Zhenzhu, don’t look around, I ask you if you can?”
Hua Wangchun patted the table, and the other history teacher shuddered.
“The corpse is a vegetarian meal, perfunctory! Even I can do this kind of stupid problem! Look, this is your usual job!” Hua Wangchun said angrily.
The “temporary meeting” has officially evolved into a criticism meeting.
Ye Cheng was very numb to this familiar routine, but it was also a good entry point.
After ten minutes of talking about them strangely, Hua Wangchun finally threw the point.
“Analyze the mistakes of students, adjust the difficulty of the mock papers, and try to get closer to the exam. Can you do it?”
The voice just fell,
Many teachers looked embarrassed: “Director, the papers will be released in the next few days. It’s not that we are lazy, it’s just too late.”
“That’s right, it takes time to analyze the error-prone points. Our question bank has already been arranged.”
Hua Wangchun sneered: “I knew you couldn’t do it, so I found a helper for you. Isn’t Ye Cheng sitting here?”
Everyone was a little at a loss, not knowing what he meant.
Hua Wangchun looked at them and said, “Student Ye Cheng is very familiar with the simulation paper mechanism of key high schools, and he is very aware of the weaknesses of our students. You also recognized his ability just now, and he has the will to help the teachers make this time together. mock volume.”
As soon as he finished speaking, the entire conference room exploded.
“What? Let him come out with the test paper?”
“Crazy, how does a student give students a test? Doesn’t he have to take the test himself?”
“Little Leaf has no problem doing the question, and the test paper is out… It’s still a little bit meaningless.”
Hua Wangchun looked at Ye Cheng, he stood up knowingly and said, “Teachers, please listen to my opinion.”
The meeting room gradually quieted down, and everyone looked at him.
As a high school student, it is impossible not to be nervous to be watched by dozens of teachers.
Even the first public class of these people as teachers was terribly nervous.
However, he did not panic at all, and even kept a decent smile on his face.
“First of all, regarding the question generation. I have memorized all the exam questions in the past ten years, including those before the reform of the exam.” Ye Cheng said calmly, “And now there is a smart question bank, which is very convenient to search. ”
“Secondly, Director Hua meant that I would start the proposition group and would not formally participate in specific topics. I can make some suggestions on the comparison of the styles of the two schools for teachers’ reference.”
“Finally,” he said calmly, “to be fair, I’m willing to give up this mock exam.”
The crowd started to stir again, Hua Wangchun looked at him in amazement, but he didn’t expect that he was willing to sacrifice so much.
“My God, give up the exam?”
“That’s what you said… Xiaoye, don’t be impulsive.”
“But anyway, how can any student participate in the proposition. Hey, although I was almost persuaded by him.”
Ye Cheng’s expression was calm. In fact, he didn’t really care about performance rankings.
One more test, one less test, it doesn’t make much difference to him.
Exams are just a special form of practice.
Hua Wangchun was quiet and said, “Ye Cheng has said so, do you have any objections?”
Someone below was hesitant to speak, and he added: “Since ancient times, it has not been broken or established, and I am reluctant. If there is no innovation, it will regress. Politics teacher, am I right?”
The political teacher was named, so he nodded in agreement, wondering what you were talking about.
Hua Wangchun said: “I am a very democratic person. Let everyone vote and decide. Just raise your hand on the spot. If you support Ye Cheng’s participation, please raise your hand.”
He himself took the lead in raising his hand.
The teacher below slandered inwardly, you are a democratic vote, and you almost wrote the word threat on your face.
But since Ye Cheng had already given up the exam, they had nothing to say, and they didn’t want to offend the director.
So everyone raised their hands and passed.
Hua Wangchun stood up with satisfaction and said, “Okay, that’s the decision.”
He turned to Ye Cheng: “Look at what time period is relatively free. You can go and help. By the way, it won’t delay your study, right?”
“No, it’s better to study at night.” Ye Cheng said.
Hua Wangchun said: “Okay, then you can ask the deputy monitor to help you take a class.”
After coming out of the conference room, Hua Wangchun called him to the side alone.
“Can you really accept not taking the test? You’re not reluctant?” he asked.
Ye Cheng said firmly: “Yes, don’t worry, teacher.”
“Then can your family accept it?” Hua Wangchun was mainly worried about his father.
Ye Cheng said, “I will explain to them.”
He thought that there was no need to explain, Gao Qiulan was very at ease with him, Ye Gaoyang would not care about him at all.
Hua Wangchun finally breathed a sigh of relief and said, “That’s fine, you can communicate well with your family. I won’t let you do it in vain. I’ll give you a bonus when the exam papers are set.”
Ye Cheng wanted to refuse, but in order to reassure him, he agreed.
From the second day onwards, the vice squad leader sits on the shift for evening self-study every night.
Ye Cheng ran to the teacher’s office to help.
The teachers were suspicious of him at first.
After that, every time he said the first half of a question, he would be able to report which year and which school the mock paper was.
The teachers thought it was unbelievable that no one in the question group was as familiar as he remembered.
The history teacher also asked him curiously: “Xiao Ye, are you born to remember?”
Ye Cheng said humbly: “It will be forgotten in a few years, and it has to be deepened.”
History teacher: “…are you in Versailles?”
“No, no.” He told the truth, after all, he had graduated from high school for many years, and it was not easy to pick up these.
In the evening, Ye Cheng was looking at the question bank, and the phone that was in his hand vibrated twice.
Hua Wangchun sat next to him to work, and glanced at the missed call on the screen: “This kid is quite clingy.”
Seeing Lu Xiao’s call, Ye Cheng felt nervous in her heart, but then her mind turned again – he did a big favor to the school, and Hua Wangchun naturally wouldn’t inform Ye Gaoyang again.
“Probably wanted to ask where I’ve been,” he concealed.
Hua Wangchun said: “You two grew up in a similar environment, no wonder you have a good relationship.”
Ye Cheng turned to him: “Why do you say that?”
Hua Wangchun put down the computer and sighed: “Xiao Lu and his father don’t have a good relationship. I have taught for so many years, and the most ruthless fight between two fathers and sons I have ever seen is their home.”
Ye Cheng took a deep breath: “Fighting in front of you?”
“More than that, we almost stabbed each other with knives.” Hua Wangchun sneered, “His father is quite famous and has a good relationship with our superiors. I don’t know the specific situation, only that his father let He dropped out, he wouldn’t, and he was beaten to death.”
“Afterwards, his father never came to school again, and probably gave up on him.”
Ye Cheng frowned, if Lu Yaoshan really ignored him, how could he give up so easily.
I don’t know why the father and son are so conflicted, even if he hates Ye Gaoyang, he has never done anything.
Hua Wangchun shook his head: “Stop talking about this, why don’t you call him back. That kid cares about you very much, don’t let him worry.”
He actually didn’t pursue Lu Xiao’s self-study night and night playing with his mobile phone.
Ye Cheng got up and said, “Then… teacher, I’ll be back when I go.”
“Go, go.” Hua Wangchun waved his hand.
Ye Cheng walked to the corner a few meters away from the office and dialed Lu Xiao’s cell phone.
After beeping twice, it quickly picked up.
“Hey, where have you been?” Lu Xiao’s voice was a little out of breath.
Ye Cheng said: “In the teacher’s office, help him get some materials. How can you call, aren’t you in class?”
Lu Xiao exhaled and said, “Damn, I thought you were running at night, so I came to the playground to find you.”
Ye Cheng felt a little strange in his heart.
As if Hua Wangchun was right, Lu Xiao suddenly became very clingy.
Obviously he wasn’t like this some time ago.
I usually go out to stay after class, or sit in the back row and play with my phone.
Now, as soon as the big class breaks, or during the lunch break, I will rush to the front row to ask him questions.
He disappeared during the evening self-study, so he called immediately, and even went to the playground to find him.
Really sticky abnormally.
But Ye Cheng didn’t show his doubts, and said to him: “You go to self-study, I’ll go back to the second class.”
“I’m already going back.” Lu Xiao said speechlessly, “What are you doing in the office, Hua Wangchun is pressing you again?”
He always felt that Hua Wangchun would instruct Ye Cheng to do some tiring work.
“No, it’s just a small matter.” Ye Cheng said.
Both sides were silent for a while, and Lu Xiao said, “Then I won’t disturb you, bye.”
“Well, bye.” Ye Cheng waited for a while.
The other side didn’t hang up, he wondered, “Is there anything else?”
Lu Xiao’s voice was very low, and when it sounded in the corridor where the night flowed, there was a hint of tenderness that was not easily detected: “It’s alright, you hang up first.”
For some reason, Ye Cheng’s heart suddenly seemed to be squeezed fiercely by a hand.
He used to be like this…
When in love, every time Lu Xiao asked him to hang up the video first, he always procrastinated.
Once he deliberately waited for a long time, and the lights were still on.
He couldn’t help but ask Lu Xiao why he did this.
Lu Xiao replied that if someone had to listen to the hang-up, I would rather be me.
At that time, Ye Cheng scoffed, thinking it was childish romance.
Again, they were just friends, but Lu Xiao still chose the one who let him hang up first.
The wind of the autumn night was a little cold, and it was wrapped in the aroma of the golden osmanthus downstairs, which made him feel a little cold, but his heart felt hot.
“Okay, I’m hanging up,” he said softly, then clicked the red icon.
Ye Cheng was in a good mood and felt that Lu Xiao was doing well.
As a sweet treat, when he returned to work, he brought him a thick stack of printed materials.
He went to the back row and put the papers on the table.
Lu Xiao looked at the top “638 pages” and was a little stunned: “What is this for?”
Ye Cheng said very gently: “Before the mock exam, do all this, and ask me if you don’t know how.”
Lu Xiao said with difficulty: “‘It’s all done’, what does it mean?”
“It’s all done. In fact, these questions are quite simple. They are all objective questions, so you can practice your hand.” Ye Cheng said, “One question every two seconds, it will be finished soon.”
“Haha.” Lu Xiao laughed dryly and couldn’t believe it, “Are you kidding me?”
Ye Cheng also smiled at him: “I didn’t tease you, I just thought you were apologizing and caring about me, and wanted to give you something in return.”
Lu Xiao was completely dumbfounded.
Ye Cheng leaned down, approached him and said, “Come on, write, if you do well in this mock test, I’ll reward you.”
His hair swept across Lu Xiao’s cheeks, crisp and itchy, with the sweet aroma of bellflower.
Lu Xiao swallowed a mouthful of saliva and said in a ghostly manner, “Can I make a request?”
