Chapter 18 - No Harm Without Comparison (1/2)

After the game was over, Zhuo Yiyan led everyone to a bus specially prepared for the show.

In the bus, most of the contestants were discussing what the reward would be, while some were those who’d lost the game and were unwilling to admit defeat. There were also a couple of people who had good relationships with each other chatting together. Only a few people were sitting silently.

So, the bus was actually quite noisy.

Zhuo Yiyan didn’t say anything. The contestants had stayed in the villa for the last week, so it was understandable that they’d get excited over a rare chance to go out.

“Teacher Zhuo, where are we going?” the girl who was sitting near him asked.

“I’ll tell you when we get there,” Zhuo Yiyan answered mysteriously.

“Why is it so mysterious? Won’t you give us a hint?”

Zhuo Yiyan laughed, and said, “It’s to do with the party tonight.”

“But, isn’t the party being held in the garden? Where else are we going?”

“You’ll naturally know when you get there,” Zhuo Yiyan cryptically responded.

Sheng Jiaoyang, sitting in the back, couldn’t help but chuckle.

Luo Yi, who occupied the sought after position next to Sheng Jiaoyang, asked, “Jiaojiao, you wouldn’t know where we’re going, would you?”

“You can think of it with just your big toe. We must be going to choose an evening dress.”

“Arghh, my big toe was shot!” as she said that, Luo Yi was clasping her chest, displaying an expression of being unjustly attacked.

Zhuo Yiyan raised an eyebrow, and turning his body to look at Sheng Jiaoyang at the back of the bus, teasingly said, “If I wasn’t so sure that we hadn’t told anyone about our itinerary, I would really think that you were one of the staff.”

“You mean, Jiaojiao guessed right?” Luo Yi asked, her eyes wide open in shock.

“Woah~ Choosing an evening dress? Really?” they all successively exclaimed in surprise.

“Jiaojiao really knows how to make an impact, she even gave you all a nice surprise,” Zhuo Yiyan sighed as he forced a smile.

“What can I do? I'm a straightforward person, after all,” Sheng Jiaoyang pushed her glasses higher up her nose and said calmly.

“Jiaojiao, you’re constantly changing my view of you,” Luo Yi sighed. “From the first day of training, I had the impression that you weren’t an ordinary girl. You look soft and delicate, but you’re the complete opposite. I didn’t see you utter a single complaint during our bitter training days. Moreover, how did you train your brain to be so intelligent? Today’s freaking questions almost drove me crazy, but you easily answered everything.”

“Jiaojiao, in school, you were definitely a top student, right?” Pu Mingyu asked as she leaned towards Luo Yi and Sheng Jiaoyang from her seat across the aisle.

“Right, I keep forgetting to ask! Jiaojiao, you should still be in high school, right?” Luo Yi asked curiously.

“I just graduated,” Sheng Jiaoyang replied.

“Oh, so that means you just finished the university entrance examinations. Tell us, which university you are admitted to? We might be future schoolmates!” Luo Yi inquired.

“F University.”

“As expected of a top student!” Pu Mingyu said in admiration while lamenting her own inadequacies.

“What will you choose to major in?” Zhuo Yiyan asked, his interest peaked.

Sheng Jiaoyang tilted her head, and uttered two words. “Wanna guess?”

Zhuo Yiyan was speechless.

Sheng Jiaoyang was in a good mood, and decided not to keep everyone in suspense. “I’m going to be majoring in English.”

“I think your English is very good. From the game before I can see that you’re quite familiar with foreign big-name brands. It seems that you usually spend time understanding other cultures.”

Sheng Jiaoyang smiled but said nothing. She couldn’t tell Luo Yi that it was only because she’d spent all her time shopping that she’d come to know those big-name brands.
