After hesitating for a moment, Gu Xiao decided to take a picture of all the questions that she did not know in one stroke, and sent them over. She took more than ten photos in a row and even sent a begging emoji.

She originally thought that Chu An would take a while to reply, but in the end, he replied instantly, but it was just a mocking sentence.

"What! What do you mean I'm lousy and stupid!"

Gu Xiao was angry, but this teasing seemed to have made their relationship even closer.

Before she could finish complaining, Chu An sent her a detailed process of answering the questions. Gu Xiao immediately forgot about him mocking her and was filled with admiration for Chu An.

However, she couldn't show that she was too pleasantly surprised! With this thought in mind, Gu Xiao only sent a thank you.

After sending it, she placed the phone on her chest and let out a long breath.

Previously, her mind was only filled with revenge, but after meeting Chu An, her heart seemed to have been rescued from the quagmire of these disputes. Chu An's arrival gave her a sense of peace and warmth.

Gu Xiao had already lost him once in her previous life. She could not lose him again in this life.

Gu Xiao's heart was beating wildly.

However, why didn't Chu An, that blockhead, come to acknowledge her? It angered her to death. Gu Xiao didn't want to take the initiative either. Who asked him to secretly run off to join the army without even telling her!

She suddenly felt a little angry.

Forget it, she did not want to think about him anymore.

"Chen Li, Gu Xiao, I've solved the second question too!" An Yang shouted excitedly.

"Coincidentally, Chu An also sent his working over. An Yang, do you want to see it?"

"Yes, yes, yes. I feel that many of his ideas are very unique. I couldn't think of these ideas at all."

"Me too." Chen Li also came over.

Hence, even though night fell, the three of them studied mathematics intensely in the small room in the dormitory for the entire night. An Yang was the fastest to learn and even combined some of her way of thinking with Chu An, and taught Gu Xiao and Chen Li. The few of them seemed to have opened the door to mathematics and studied the questions for the entire night without getting tired of it.

At the same time, in another dormitory.

"What a small bed. What's with the moldy smell in this dormitory?" Meng Fei complained as soon as she entered.

"Don't talk so much. Take it or leave it." Ji Yao was already annoyed. Now that there was no camera, she didn't even want to pretend to be friendly.

"What does it have to do with you if I speak? It's none of your business." Meng Fei immediately retorted. "I've long disliked you. Why are you pretending all day long!"

"I'm pretending?" Ji Yao glared at her and approached her step by step. "You'd better think about your words seriously. Your family only has some money. In terms of influence and power, my Ji family is countless times greater than yours. You'd better know your place. Be careful or I'll bankrupt your family."

Meng Fei did not say anything else. Although she was rash, she could tell the severity of the matter. Ji Yao was right. If Ji Yao wanted to, she could indeed do it.

"Stop arguing. We haven't even done our homework." Lin Xue was speechless. They were just children. Why were they scheming like this every day?

She was becoming more and more resistant to the idea of working with Ji Yao.

She wanted the chance to study abroad, but if it went against her principles, why would be the point of getting this spot?

Even if Ji Yao could really expel her and City No. 1 High School did not want her, what about No. 2 High School and No. 3 High School? Anyway, gold would shine wherever it went.

Lin Xue was already prepared to leave this small group. Compared to Ji Yao, she preferred to stay with people like Gu Xiao.

"Alright, I don't want to argue anymore." Ji Yao waved her hand, took out her phone, and walked to the balcony to make a call.

She came back a few minutes later with a slightly crazy smile on her face.

"Meng Fei, Lin Xue, I'll post a post on the school forum. The content is that I'm Chu An's girlfriend and we have been maintaining an underground relationship. However, Chu An cheated on me and Gu Xiao is a mistress." As she spoke, she picked up her phone. There were many intimate photos of her and Chu An, and there were no traces of them being photoshopped.

"Are you crazy?" Lin Xue could not believe that Ji Yao would do such a thing. "It's his right to like whoever he likes. Ji Yao, I really don't understand you. Why are you doing this?"

"You just have to agree with me." Ji Yao ignored Lin Xue. "There will definitely be benefits for you."

Lunatic, she was simply a lunatic.

Lin Xue took two steps back and knocked over the vase she had placed on the table. The vase shattered with a crisp sound.

Lin Xue realized that although the flowers were still blooming brightly, the roots of the flowers had already turned black.
