Chasing Summer

Chapter 4 Part 2

Although Lin Zhexia dared to utter nonsense in front of a person who looks more like a big bro than she does, she wasn’t actually an outgoing person.

After she entered Year One Class 7, she sat down in silence in the seat with her name pasted on it. She took the initiative to say hello to her deskmate named Chen Lin, then took out a book from her bag and put it on the table to ease the awkwardness.

On the other hand, her new sociable deskmate hit her up and shared some news with her in less than three minutes, “I heard that we’re not having class today and going straight into a mock test. On top of this, we’re not just being tested on stuff we learned before, there’s also first year high school content that we haven’t learned yet.”

Lin Zhexia was surprised at her information-gathering ability, “How did you know?”

Chen Lin has some freckles on her face, she looked very cheerful and enthusiastic.


She shook the phone hidden under her textbook.

“School forum,” Chen Lin explained, “There are posts from second and third year seniors. On it, you can find literally any information.”

Lin Zhexia isn’t as keen on surfing the Internet as Chen Lin, she doesn’t even have any celebrities she follows. She usually uses her phone to search for things and watch videos, as well as chat with Chi Yao.

Lin Zhexia held a black-inked pen, got the paper, and scanned the questions from beginning to end.


This habit of hers was just like Chi Yao’s.

She actually caught this from Chi Yao since young. Although her grades weren’t as excellent as his, their writing habits are actually very similar.

After scanning the questions, she found that there were many questions on the paper that… she had done before during the summer vacation.

That question Chi Yao said he was “too lazy to even solve” also made an appearance. It was almost the exact same, only several values were changed.

“Then, I guess,” Lin Zhexia muttered silently as she wrote her name in the upper left corner, “I guess I’ll reluctantly forgive you for calling me short this morning.”

After the test, the test papers were handed in for on-the-spot marking.

Most people had just barely passed, their scores were too tragic to look at.

The total was 120, and Chen Lin scored 81 points. After getting back her test paper, she felt a bit broken, “We probably don’t need to show this to our parents, right?”

As soon as she finished speaking, Teacher Xu called out Lin Zhexia’s name.

“Lin Zhexia,” Teacher Xu pushed his glasses, and after the student whose name was called out stood up, he took several extra glances at her, “110, the only three digits in our class, very well done, keep up the good work.”

After hearing a bunch of double-digit scores, when the students heard “110”, they couldn’t help but create a fuse, “Damn, 110.”

“Someone could actually get a three-digit score on this devil of a test paper?”


“I thought that 99 would be first in class.”

Lin Zhexia didn’t expect that on the first day of school, she would be held in the limelight because of her test score.

And that’s not even the most embarrassing thing.

The most embarrassing thing was that Teacher Xu was quite satisfied with her score and asked her to make a speech.

Teacher Xu said, “Is there anything you want to say to your new classmates?”

Lin Zhexia stood on the edge of the platform, holding the test paper. Her mind was blank for a moment, and she did not know what to say.

Under the watchful eyes of her classmates, she did not know what to think. In the end, she said, “I don’t really have anything to say. If I must say something, I can only say that, you guys should be more like me.”

There was a moment of silence.

Then someone took the lead and clapped, “Sheeeesh!”

When she got off the stage, Chen Lin couldn’t help saying, “You’re awesome.”

Lin Zhexia wanted to travel back in time and strangle herself from a few minutes ago, “My brain might’ve been pinched by something just now.”

Chen Lin, “Nah, the way you spoke just now. As expected, you are undaunted by waves.”


“…” Lin Zhexia didn’t want to recall, “You can just pretend you’ve never seen me.”

Right now, she.

Really wants to.

Tap open Chi Yao’s chat.

And then type a long string of “ahhhh” into it.

But she can’t, she can’t be on her phone during class.

She and Chen Lin got to know each other by accident because of this embarrassing incident.

After class, Chen Lin wasn’t able to completely understand the questions taken up in class.

So Lin Zhexia went over it with her one more time.

Chen Lin took back her test paper and asked, “Thank you. Did you do extra lessons during your vacation? Like hiring a tutor or something?”

Lin Zhexia thought of that face of Chi Yao’s, one she couldn’t afford to hire, “I guess so…”

Chen Lin, “Then your tutor must’ve been quite serious, since you were actually taught all these questions.”


“He’s not that good,” Lin Zhexia said straight away since Chi Yao wasn’t here anyway. “He’s ugly and has a bad temper.”

Chen Lin, “Ah?”

“And also like putting on airs.”

Finally, Lin Zhexia concluded, “…In any case, he’s not that good, it’s mainly because of my talent.”

What nobody knew was that she secretly took out her phone during the period between classes.

Then tapped opened someone’s chat.

Shen earnestly sent over an emote of an inferior man kneeling down, and typed a few lines of words.

-Super invincible handsome guy Chi Yao
-You’re great
-It’s so good to have you
-You, are, my, father!!!

And the super invincible handsome guy across the screen responded with seven words.

-Blocking you if you keep being crazy.
