Xu Muyan couldn’t bear seeing Chu Bai bragging and wanted to retaliate.
But then again, she didn’t want to agree to Chu Bai’s bet.
After all, the bet wasn’t something that could be taken lightly.
“Don’t you dare to bet with me?” Chu Bai asked.
“She dares. My daughter Yan Yan agrees!” Father Xu intervened.
“It’s getting late. Yan Yan must go to sleep. Young man, you must work hard.”
“Well, goodbye Uncle Xu, Xu Muyan.”
Chu Bai then hung up.
“Dad, what did you do? Why did you say I agree?” Xu Muyan was gloomy.
“Since you didn’t answer for a long time, I answered for you.” Father Xu replied.
“If I lose, I… I’ll be someone’s girlfriend. Are you really my own father?” Xu Muyan looked at him with contempt.
“Then do you really think that you’ll lose?” Father Xu asked.
Xu Muyan began to contemplate about it and then insisted.
“I will never lose!”
In order to rank up from the bottom of the class to the middle in such a short period of time wasn’t so difficult as long as one studied hard. However, it was impossible for one to raise their rank to the top ten from the middle or bottom rank!
As one of the bookworms, that was something Xu Muyan was sure of.
“Alright then.” Father Xu smiled.
He did what he did because he had recalled using a similar move while pursuing Xu Muyan’s mother during his student days.
Father Xu had seen his younger reflection in Chu Bai.
In addition to that, Father Xu admired Chu Bai and felt that his character wasn’t half bad.
So, he agreed on behalf of Xu Muyan.
Anyway, now that his daughter told him it was unlikely for Chu Bai to win the bet unless a miracle happened. If Chu Bai could make it into the top ten, it would prove that Chu Bai was his daughter’s soul mate.
If he could put in that much effort in raising his rank to the top ten to pursue his daughter, he was worthy enough to become her boyfriend.
Father Xu seemed to be very open-minded regarding his daughter’s choice of a partner.
“You can continue watching your TV. I’m going to sleep, hmph.”
As Xu Muyan still felt a bit gloomy about what had happened, she pulled a face at her father and returned to her room.
After returning to her room, Xu Muyan tossed and turned but couldn’t sleep, so she took out her phone and found Wen Jing’s number in her contacts.
She planned to vent her frustration to Wen Jing.
After Xu Muyan dialed the number, she waited for a while, hearing it ring, until Wen Jing picked up.
“Jing Jing, I didn’t disturb your sleep, did I?” Xu Muyan asked.
“I… I’m still awake. This… Why are you calling me at this hour? What’s the matter?” Wen Jing was stammering.
“What are you doing? Why does your voice sound a little strange?”
“I’m… eating spicy sticks. Ah, it’s just too… spicy.”
“Haha, you’re eating spicy sticks this late. I really envy you.”
“I didn’t eat enough today. When I got home, I was hungry, and I only had spicy sticks here.”
“Jing Jing, I have something to tell you. It made me speechless, you know. My dad was acting strange today. He actually…” After Xu Muyan casually conversed with Wen Jing for a few minutes, she began pouring out her grievances.
“Chu Bai bet Xu Muyan that if he could get into the top ten of the class in the joint exam, she must be his girlfriend?”
Wang Haoran, who was next to Wen Jing, was taken aback hearing Xu Muyan’s scorn.
The college entrance exams would be right around the corner when the bottom ranker Protagonist makes a bet with the bookworm campus belle. He then amazes the world with his results, and the bookworm campus belle would gradually become his girlfriend.
Wang Haoran couldn’t be more familiar with this melodramatic trope.
Ignoring the fact that Chu Bai was a bottom ranker, he had the X-Ray vision ability with which he could see through things. If he managed to copy a top-scoring student in the exam room, his results wouldn’t be bad.
For Chu Bai to get into the top ten of the class was a simple matter.
Xu Muyan would lose the bet for sure!
Wang Haoran was glad that he didn’t let Wen Jing go back today and accidentally got this important piece of information from her.
As there were still a couple of days left till the joint exams, he had ample time to make preparations to foil Chu Bai’s plan.
Wasn’t Chu Bai cheating using his X-ray Vision ability?
But what if he couldn’t cheat? Could he still make it into the top ten ranks?
A while later, Wen Jing ended the call with Xu Muyan.
After Wang Haoran was done with his work, he opened his attribute panel and took a look at it.
[Villain points: 1400]
Though he purchased Master-Level Singing Spring Fist just the previous night, he had piled up so many Villain Points today.
He gained these Villain Points quite fast.
Should he proceed with purchasing Artist skills or Youth Preserving Pellets? Or should he just draw the lottery?
Wang Haoran pondered for a while, then chose to draw the lottery.
As he was still young, he wasn’t in a hurry to purchase a Youth Preserving Pellet. He wasn’t in need of good artist skills for the time being, so he chose to try out his luck!
After consuming 500 villain points, the lottery results came out.
[Sadly, the Host wasn’t able to draw any rewards. Does the Host want to consume 500 Villain Points and draw again?
“Draw again!” Wang Haoran thought for a while, then commanded the system.
[Ding! Congratulations, Host, for being lucky enough to draw the ‘God-Level Singing Skill’, worth 1500 villain points. Does the Host wish to blend with it now?]
Thankfully, his luck wasn’t that bad.
Wang Haoran felt somewhat relieved, then replied to the system. “Blend it now.”
Wang Haoran was very satisfied with this ‘God-Level Singing Skill’.
He was already handsome to begin with, but with this skill, he could step into the entertainment industry and become a top-class celebrity if he wanted to.
But what Wang Haoran considered the most wasn’t whether he could become a celebrity or not, but how to charm the heroines with this skill.
Girls are attracted to boys who can sing well.
Now, with the ‘God-Level Singing Skill’, coupled with him being the most handsome student in school and coming from a wealthy family, not many girls could resist him.
Wang Haoran couldn’t wait to reveal his singing skill before Song Zhenyu and Xu Muyan.
“Should I call them and personally sing them a song?” That idea popped up in Wang Haoran’s head, but he quickly dismissed it.
It was too late now. If he called them at this hour, it would seem like he was harassing them.
The only thing he could do was wait until he got the chance to reveal it.
The next day.
Chu Bai woke up from bed just after dawn.
He was the first student to arrive at the classroom.
There was still some time before the morning class began, so Chu Bai took his seat and immersed himself in reading.
Chu Bai would obviously destroy the joint exam, but before that, he had to pretend he was studying hard.
The morning studying time.
The students in class were studying English. Some were studying ancient poetry and others literature.
Chu Bai took the textbook into his hand and started reading the ancient poetry aloud.
As it was the morning study time, it wasn’t appropriate for him to do that.
Not long after, students seated close to Chu Bai could no longer bear it.
“Chu Bai, can you please lower your voice? Are you trying to make me go deaf?”
“Right. You’re so loud. If others who didn’t know you’re reading heard you, they’d think that there’s a dog barking here.”
“You’re reading too loud. Can you please keep your voice down? It’s affecting others.”
“Ah, my ears.”
The neighboring students began to complain to Chu Bai.
“It feels good reading it aloud. It’s none of your business!” Chu Bai shot back.
“Hmph, his grades are quite poor, but he still doesn’t admit his mistake.”
“That’s right. Bottom rankers just love making trouble everywhere.”
“Don’t look down on me. Soon after the joint exams, you’ll know who’s really a bottom ranker. You’re just a group of trash, waiting to get slapped in the face by my report card!” Chu Bai shot back again.
There was no one with top grades among those who complained, so Chu Bai didn’t bother with them any longer.
He had already made up his mind to make their faces swell by slapping them with his joint exams report card when it came out!
