Chapter 1477: Results Deteriorated
Seeing that Parker didn’t look panicked like on the show, Bai Qingqing didn’t mention the matter and simply said, “I suddenly missed you.”
Parker grinned. “I’ve always known you like me the most.”
The next day, Bai Qingqing was brought to the podium by her form teacher and criticized in front of everyone.
Not because she had played truant, but because her results for the recent monthly examination had deteriorated severely.
There were over 3000 people in their grade. From a stable top 100, Bai Qingqing’s ranking dropped all the way to 1000+.
Once the ranking was out, all her cla.s.smates, her teachers included, were in disbelief.
Bai Qingqing was also shocked. To think she could still be ranked somewhere in the middle?
Standing on the podium to reflect on herself, Bai Qingqing cast an unbelievable gaze at the students with average results in her cla.s.s. She felt that she knew nothing, and for some subjects, she had basically guessed her way through the entire paper. So it turned out those average students were of her standard? She was stunned.
After Bai Qingqing was done with the self-reflection, the form teacher said in a pained voice, “You’ve always been an outstanding student. What happened this time? Even if you hadn’t attended cla.s.s for a month, your grades shouldn’t have dropped that much! It’s like you’ve forgotten all the knowledge you used to know!”
Bai Qingqing lowered her head and mumbled, “Suddenly couldn’t recall it.”
She hadn’t studied for five years! They say ‘pregnancy makes one stupid for three years’. She had undergone five pregnancies. Added together, she should be stupid for ten-odd years.
Who had the b.a.l.l.s to try giving birth at home for five years before going back to studying? The ignorance and blankness after returning to school would make one despair.
The form teacher sighed again and waved for her to go down. “Teacher believes you just performed below your usual standard this time. Focus on your studies and stop thinking about having fun all day long!”
Recalling yesterday’s kidnapping and the leave of absence she had taken, the form teacher finally stopped nagging Bai Qingqing and changed the topic. She said, “Next Wednesday the school will be holding the autumn sports meet. All of you may sign up for the events with the sports committee! Everyone has to partic.i.p.ate in at least three events.”
The cla.s.s instantly exploded and broke into fervent discussion.
Bai Qingqing returned to her seat. Tang Li had been looking at her in disbelief.
“I suddenly understand why the school forbids students from dating.” Tang Li said in an enlightened tone, “You’re one b.l.o.o.d.y and tragic example of why we shouldn’t do that! The consequences of falling in love early.”
Bai Qingqing glared at her and said coldly, “I won’t let you copy my homework anymore so that you can end your miserable life earlier.”
Even after sliding more than 1000 ranks, Bai Qingqing’s ranking still narrowly beat Tang Li’s. If she was a tragic example, didn’t that imply Tang Li had been living in misery all along?
Tang Li had no words to retort that.
“What events are you taking part in? Still the simplest standing long jump and shot put?” asked Tang Li.
Though Bai Qingqing’s academic results had suffered a great decline, having lived in the forest for a few years and the exercise that she inevitably did when having fun in the outdoors, Bai Qingqing’s stamina and physique had greatly improved. Besides, every time she formed a spousal relations.h.i.+p, her stamina was enhanced. Now, she didn’t have to be scared of any sports meets.
Bai Qingqing shook her head. Even though she still looked sickly, her face was filled with confidence. “Everyone’s vying to sign up for these events. It’s too difficult. I’m going to sign up for the running events.”
Tang Li instantly looked at her ample chest.
Bai Qingqing: “…”
“If you continue staring I’ll unfriend you, do you believe me?” Bai Qingqing said darkly.
Tang Li said, “I just want to say that your courage is commendable.”
Bai Qingqing snapped. “Get lost!”
Tang Li wisely got lost and signed up with the sports committee.
Bai Qingqing had returned to normal. As the sports meet approached, Grade 10 and Grade 11 students had to attend more physical training cla.s.ses.
Perhaps because of the extra exercise, Bai Qingqing’s appet.i.te had increased lately. Even the lunchboxes sent to her had been changed to larger-sized ones.
