gh the window, and numerous cicadas would sing out in succession, its noise making everyone drowsy.

The teacher in front whacked an eraser on the blackboard in an attempt to rouse the students.
“Haven’t you understood the learning points?  Mark the key points, ah.
Finals is based on the equator’s positional relationship to the line connecting the earth’s core and the sun—The line lies north of the equator, indicating that the sun shines directly at 23°26’N.
Then the trajectory of the Earth’s orbital rotation is at the summer solstice… He Xiangyang!” 

A tall boy in the back row, who was still dazed from sleep, was called and jerked up.
“Here!”

This led the class to burst out laughing.

The geography teacher chided the class several times to quiet down, his face disgruntled as he said, “Did you listen to what I just taught clearly?”

“I paid close attention!” 

“Then I’ll ask you.
If the obliquity of the ecliptic increases, what will happen to the sun rays at noon in Shanghai on the summer solstice?”

“Ah?”

 

“What ah? Answer the question!”

“This..
I haven’t been to Shanghai either, ah, teacher…”

The class was filled with laughter once more.
Their laughing jolted Guo Jingyu awake.
He blinked his eyes, as if seeing from a bystander’s perspective, gradually blending in with them.
For a little period, he looked blankly, somewhat at a loss for words, unsure whether he was in a dream or not.

Guo Jingyu’s forehead was damp with sweat.
He saw the figure seated in front of him as soon as he glanced up.

It was Li Tongzhou.
His back was as ramrod straight as it had always been, his white shirt school uniform had a mild scent of detergent, and his slightly long hair was neatly parted.
He was also accompanied by the steady rustling of a pen; calm and unhurried.
He looked like he’d always been: a straight A student.

Guo Jingyu laughed, as if he’d been freed of a huge burden, and gently nudged the person in front of him twice with a pen, saying in a hushed whisper, “Li Tongzhou?” The teen in front of him halted and didn’t say anything, but he extended his hand behind him and handed him something. 

Guo Jingyu was lying motionless on his desk.
With his fingers, he poked Li Tongzhou’s palm, which the other gently gripped.

Guo Jingyu’s heartbeat gradually slowed, and the corners of his mouth lifted slightly.
He had waited for this guy for so long, and he had never had such a vivid dream like this, where he could touch him—if this was a dream, it was the most beautiful one he had ever had, and he wasn’t willing to wake up.

The geography teacher, who was still roll-calling, took the opportunity to let a few dozing off and lazy students in the back row to rise up and stand still as punishment.
He made amends for the class’s misbehavior.

The chairs in the class were organized according to height.
After a row of male students rose up, they resembled a row of towering sunflowers, except that each one was withering, smacking their lips, and appeared as though they couldn’t endure listening 

The geography teacher posed the same question again, and this time he called Li Tongzhou.

Li Tongzhou stood up and remarked, “Increases.”

When the geography teacher stared at the top student in the class, his mood brightened somewhat.
He motioned for him to sit down and then proceeded to lecture.

  

Guo Jingyu supported his chin with one hand and waited until the after-class bell rang, bringing him back to reality.

Those who had been punished to stand still suddenly sprang back to life as soon as class ended.
“Yu-ge, why didn’t Boss call you just now? You clearly slept better than I did!” He Xiangyang grumbled with a sullen face.

Guo Jingyu cocked his head to look at him.
Before he could speak, the few people next to him answered for him, “Nonsense! Yu-ge has someone to help him.
Whenever he’s called up to answer, he’d always answer correctly.
He’d surely not be called, ah.”

Guo Jingyu glanced again at Li Tongzhou, who was sitting in the front row, and smiled wordlessly.
With the help of Li Tongzhou, the number one top student in the grade, he’d just stand up and read the answer that was written on the paper in front of him. 

He Xiangyang was still grumbling, “I felt relieved to follow you to sleep because you were sleeping so soundly…”

Guo Jingyu gave him a light kick, laughed, and scolded, “Scram!”

 

 

Li Tongzhou got up and went out.
Guo Jingyu noticed him and instantly followed him.
“Going somewhere?” 

Li Tongzhou took a quick glance at him, saying, “To the Chinese teacher.
Gonna carry the assignment.”

Guo Jingyu immediately placed his hand on his shoulder and followed after him.
“That’s perfect, I’ll help you.
Let’s go together.”

Li Tongzhou was a little taken aback.
He couldn’t help observing him again when they were in the corridor.
He wanted to say something, but he was hesitant.

Guo Jingyu was staring at him as well, but his thoughts were entirely different.
His heart had fluttered slightly as he saw Li Tongzhou standing in front of him.
He had to desperately resist the dampness that was continually building in his eyes, as if a little electric charge had passed upwards, activating his tear glands. 

After a few steps, Li Tongzhou couldn’t help but mutter, “Didn’t you say you planned to hide from the Chinese teacher these two days?”

Guo Jingyu responded oddly, “Why?”

Li Tongzhou gave him an even stranger look.
“You scored 72 points on the exam last time,” he hesitated for a moment before adding, “A fail.”

Guo Jingyu, “…” 

Busted.
He had forgotten that he was a learning scum in high school.
