Extraordinary Genius - Chapter 304 – Graduation
Time flies, and soon the high school final exams were over.
After the last exam, Feng Yu looked at the smiling Li Na who was walking out of the examination halls. He knew that she would do well in her exams.
“How was it? I had said that with your results, you should have no problems getting good grades.” Feng Yu said while passing her a bottle of Jianlibao.
“I had seen many similar questions before.” Li Na nodded. She was too excited, and her face was blushing.
There were many parents around waiting for their children. High school exams was a big event for them. It was even more important than the high school exams in the future. Now, if their children get into the University, they would be assigned jobs, and in the future, they would be leaders.
In that era, Studying can change one’s fate. Some poor villages even pooled the whole village resources to let one child get into the university.
“Your sister should have done well for her exams. She must be able to get into a university. I still don’t know how my brother does in his exams. Bro, want a smoke?” A man in his 20s beside them passed Feng Yu a cigarette. He thought that Li Na was Feng Yu’s sister. He did not think that the both of them were dating.
At their age, many were already dating, and even some were married. Those that were underage would have their wedding banquets first, and when they passed their legal age, they would then register their marriage. But for university students, especially in the City, it was uncommon.
“Thanks, but I don’t some. I still have something on, and we will make a move first. Good luck to your brother.”
That man saw Feng Yu left with his “sister’ in a car and it was still an imported car. He eyes grew wide. This guy’s family was so wealthy. He can never afford this type of cars. He still has to send his brother to University, and after his brother become a leader in the future, he would also get the opportunity to own a small car.
“Where are you bringing me to?”
“To the fun fair. The Ferris wheel had started operating. Didn’t you want to ride the Ferris wheel? We finally got the chance to go there. The school now must be messy. You will know tonight.”
It was not sure when it started, there was a tradition of throwing books after the high school final exams. It was as if all the students were releasing all their examination stress and saying farewell to the school. There were even howling, and Feng Yu even saw a student throwing away his pencil case after the exams.
Of course, Feng Yu had also done that in his previous life. But this life, he had no stress at all. The school was like a playground for him. He did not even attend the exams, why would he have stress?
With Li Na’s character, she would not participate in those crazy activities. That’s why it was better for Feng Yu to bring her out.
They played at the fun fair for about an hour, and the sky starts to turn dark. After dinner, Feng Yu sent Li Na back to her hostel. Tomorrow will be the day for the students to apply for the universities. Li Na’s first choice was Beijing Teaching University. That evening, the school had organized a party for the students at the nearby cultural palace. This was to celebrate the graduation of the third years.
“Eh, look at what I am wearing today. Do I look handsome?” Wen Dongjun asked while standing in front of a mirror. Because he had gotten a place in Beijing Technological University, he was an honored student, and he would be receiving an award from the school tonight.
Feng Yu glanced at him: “Yes, you are so handsome! I heard that you will even be performing at the party. Have your practice? Don’t disgrace yourself.”
When Feng Yu mentioned this, Wen Dongjun’s face changed: “Sigh… how did the teacher plan this performance? I only get to say the last line!”
“The last line is always the most important. This is the teacher taking care of you. Perform well. I will cheer for you.” Feng Yu said while trying to hold back his laughter. The last line was typically reserved for the worst performer. This teacher could tell Wen Dongjun’s capabilities!
The party started, and there were performances like singing, dancing, and many other performances. There were also plays. Some of the year 3 students participated in these performances, and some were from the junior high school students nearby. These students had to practice for this performance before their final exams.
When it was Wen Dongjun’s turn, Feng Yu almost died from laughing.
Wen Dongjun was 1.85m tall and the teacher team him up with 3 other junior high school students who were 1.4m.
This sharp contrast had a substantial impact on the audiences. When the audience saw the sour look on Wen Dongjun’s face, everyone burst out in laughter. Wen Dongjun was famous in school for his height and his skills in basketball and football. He was even exempted from the entrance exams to Beijing Technological University. All the other students envied him.
But today, he was the joke of the party. Luckily Wen Dongjun was a shameless person, and he could still carry on with his performance.
“Third Highschool had lots of outstanding students, and all of them are the future leaders. They had worked hard to go to Beijing. I am exempted from the entrance exams!”
But he did not notice that every line he said, he had to bend his knees slightly. He looks very weird.
After his performance ended, he was feeling proud. Look, my performance was excellent. I received the most laughter and applause. But he did not know that it was because of other reasons.
The other three junior high school students were wearing their school uniforms. Only Wen Dongjun was wearing formal wear. The contrast was too big. All his lines were boasting, and this was in line with his character. The teacher really understands him well!
After the party ended, some of the students were not satisfied. Someone suggested a BBQ on a small island in the north of the river tomorrow, and lots of students agreed.
Feng Yu thought for a while. This might the last time he will be with these students. He also accepted the invitation.
“Teachers, today, the both of us invited you here is to thank all of you for your guidance these few years……” Feng Yu and Li Na had reserved a table at a restaurant to thank their teachers.
“The both of you are good students, and I am proud to have taught the both of you.” The form teacher said.
He was the most qualified person to say this. He was Feng Yu and Li Na’s form teacher from year 1 to year 3. He got the chance to teach Arts stream was also because of Feng Yu.
At first, the form teacher was not happy. Getting good results in Science stream was easy. But now, he felt that Arts stream was also able to achieve outstanding results. It does not matter how other students fare in their exams. Feng Yu’s admittance into Beijing University was enough for him to brag to the coming few batches of students. He can claim that he had taught an outstanding student.
The form teacher also got a good performance appraisal because of this class.
The only regret was that after Feng Yu graduate, he would not receive expensive gifts during festivals. Every festival, Feng Yu had asked his men to send his teacher gifts. The last Lunar New Year, the form teacher had received gifts that were worth more than his one-year salary.
Of course, he had also taken good care of Feng Yu and Li Na. Now, both students were admitted to the universities in Beijing, he would not feel guilty for closing one eye and letting the both of them do whatever they wanted.
The form teacher slowly stood up and raise his glass: “Come, let us toast and wish the both of them to have a good future!
Translator notes: Finally, Feng Yu had graduated from High School after 300 chapters. Will the university also takes another 300 chapters?
