Chapter 1343: Punished to Copy Cla.s.sical Chinese Writings
Out of these, Muir had gotten 18 medals. It wasn’t that he wasn’t capable of getting the remaining three medals, but that due to the conflict in time, he had missed out on the compet.i.tions.
But 18 gold medals was already the current record in the Olympics. The other record holder had already retired, and it was just a matter of time before Muir broke the record.
Bai Qingqing hadn’t seen these yet. After cheering for one entire lesson, she and Zhang Xin were called to the office by the form teacher.
Someone had made a report to the form teacher and news of there being a love letter between Bai Qingqing and Zhang Xin had been pa.s.sed to his ears. Thankfully, the form teacher was in a good mood due to the Olympics results and didn’t seem to be planning on reproaching them.
“I heard that the two of you are in a relations.h.i.+p?” Seeing the form teacher’s strictness, Bai Qingqing’s heart trembled a little.
Zhang Xin threw her a glance, then took a step forward to grab the form teacher’s attention.
“I was the one who wrote the letter. It’s not her fault.”
The form teacher raised his brows and sneered. “You’re trying to be the hero saving the damsel in distress? You must have been watching too many television dramas. Taking a quote off a line that’s commonly used in the shows: you can’t even save yourself now!”
Bai Qingqing felt that things weren’t looking good. He should have just admitted his mistake, yet he decided to be headstrong. Look, he had offended the boss now.
“Teacher Li, you’re mistaken. We aren’t in a relations.h.i.+p. After he gave me the love letter, I didn’t agree to it, so the matter just ended there,” Bai Qingqing said honestly.
The form teacher’s countenance turned better, but he still didn’t believe it. Every student who had been caught wouldn’t admit to it and make it sound as if what they said was true.
Moreover, they had even admitted to the love letter. No matter what, they must still be punished. The form teacher’s expression became stern and he said mercilessly, “Go back and copy all the Cla.s.sical Chinese writing we learned this semester ten times.”
Bai Qingqing’s expression immediately fell. They were then harshly reproached by the form teacher for a while before being allowed to leave.
“Sigh.” Bai Qingqing headed back to the female dormitory, looking crestfallen.
To copy all the Cla.s.sical Chinese writings ten times! That’d be at least 10,000 words! Moreover, those words were rarely used. How long would it take her to finish all of them? She had other a.s.signments, too.
That was really annoying. She had been planning to finish her homework tonight and go out to play with Curtis tomorrow.
“Erm, don’t be upset. I’ll help copy yours.” Zhang Xin patted his chest.
Delighted, Bai Qingqing looked at Zhang Xin. But at the next instant, her eyes drooped again.
“Forget it. Copying it ten times is a lot of work as it is. I’m afraid you’ll die from overwork.”
Zhang Xin couldn’t help but smile, saying, “I can tell our housekeeper to help you with yours. I can get the chauffeur to do my share, too. Don’t worry, I won’t die from overwork.”
Bai Qingqing threw him a glance. He was really rich to have both a housekeeper and a chauffeur. She, on the other hand, was so poor that she had planned on working during the weekends to earn money.
“Alright, then. I’ll leave the a.s.signment to you.” Bai Qingqing was neither sad nor happy, only a little thankful.
Zhang Xin smiled and said, “Let me bring back a copy of your a.s.signment. I’ll get my housekeeper to follow your handwriting. I guarantee that no one will be able to tell.”
Bai Qingqing was surprised. “Your housekeeper can imitate other people’s handwriting? That’s amazing.”
“Of course. This is something that everyone who works for my family needs to learn.” Zhang Xin suddenly stopped, frowning. He realized that he had said something wrong.
Bai Qingqing asked, feeling perplexed, “Don’t you have a chauffeur to copy your work? Why does the housekeeper need to learn to imitate handwriting, too?”
Before she finished her words, Bai Qingqing let out an “oh” in realization. It must be to deal with the punishment he received from falling in love at a young age.
Didn’t w.a.n.g Cuiniu say that he had a lot of girlfriends back in middle school? That housekeeper must be the one who copied homework for Zhang Xin’s girlfriends.
