Quick Transmigration: Beauty Manufacturing System - Chapter 3
In the hot summer, a group of people was standing on the school field.
Liu Xu was standing in line. Waiting for the teacher’s arrival, she wiped the sweat on her forehead with her hand.
At this moment, the PE teacher came over with a stopwatch. “In today’s lesson, we’re going to run eight hundred meters and do long jumps. The boys will run a kilometer first, and the girls will follow up with long jumps according to their student numbers.”
As soon as Liu Xu heard this, her heart sank. She was done for. Eight hundred meters and long jumps, these all are certainly her weaknesses.
Oh, no. To be more precise, sports are her weaknesses.
Soon after Chen Xinran noticed Liu Xu’s worried expression, she realized what she was thinking of. She comforted: “Don’t worry, you can do it. You’ll definitely pass.”
Seeing how Chen Xinran was comforting her, Liu Xu tried her best to squeeze out a smile from the corners of her mouth: “En.”
The PE teacher of Class One also took the students to the sports field. Those with good eyesight immediately spotted Qiao Jiuyue in line.
It wasn’t known who voiced it first. “You guys, look. The president, it’s the president.”
The admirer junior brothers and sisters began to exclaim cheerfully, “It’s really the president!”
“I can’t believe the president would be in the same PE class as us today.”
“The president is beautiful today.”
“What are you talking about. When has the president ever been not beautiful?”
Liu Xu watched as her fellow schoolmates exclaim in excitement. She could fully understand their feelings. The president was also her Goddess, after all.
Liu Xu’s gaze went over to Qiao Jiuyue’s side and coincidentally met her Goddess’ eyes. She slightly smiled at her. Her pearly white teeth slightly showed, as though she was still saying something.
As they were too far apart, Liu Xu couldn’t hear anything. However, from what she saw of the movement of her mouth, it seemed to be her name…
Liu Xu heavily blinked. She could never have imagined it in her head. The president really smiled at her just now. She even called her name. The president actually remembered her…
Everyone was startled by the sudden scream, and one by one, they turned to look at the girl.
“What happened?” A person asked.
“Ah!!! The president actually smiled at me just now!” The girl suddenly covered her face, completely empty of the vigor she had when she squealed just a moment ago.
“No way, the president was definitely smiling at me just now.”
“What are you saying, the president was definitely smiling at me.”
While the admirer junior brothers and sisters were arguing, Liu Xu was completely immersed in Qiao Jiuyue’s smile…
[Liu Xu’s current favorability towards the host has risen to 70.]
Qiao Jiuyue raised an eyebrow. As expected, this face identical to her own has proven to be useful.
Even so, frankly speaking, who wouldn’t like beautiful people? Ah…
“Ready, go.” As soon as the PE teacher finished speaking, Qiao Jiuyue and the female students on her side immediately started running.
After one lap, Qiao Jiuyue was on the lead. From the sides, cheers from the admirer junior brothers and sisters could be heard from time to time.
Qiao Jiuyue turned her gaze straight towards Liu Xu who was standing not far away, a faint smile plastered on the corners of her mouth.
When she was on the last lap, Qiao Jiuyue deliberately changed tracks.
[As expected, the host has a good plan.]
”Shut up.” Qiao Jiuyue told off the system in her mind.
Liu Xu saw how Qiao Jiuyue unexpectedly ran towards her side. She was aware of how she was actually standing on the last track. And now, she suddenly ran over, so it goes without saying that the president would naturally need to waste more energy and time.
Just when Liu Xu was still immersed in the thought of her Goddess, Qiao Jiuyue’s voice came over: “You’ll need to hang on for a while.”
 The “hang on” here is 加油 (jia1you2). I don’t really know the equivalent of this in English, so…
Because running for a long time wastes a great amount of energy, she said it very softly. However, Liu Xu could hear it very clearly. She could even hear Qiao Jiuyue’s soft gasps…
The wind gently swept, driving Qiao Jiuyue’s remaining fragrance to drift into Liu Xu’s nose, seeping into her body…
[Liu Xu’s current favorability towards the host has risen to 80, and the happiness value has risen to 40.]
Soon it was their class’ turn for the girls to run, and Liu Xu’s position was around the middle of the line. She tightly clenched both of her fists, with Qiao Jiuyue’s words echoing in her mind. Hang on, hang on, she needs to hang on for a while…
Right after those words were uttered, Liu Xu rushed out at lightning speed. Even Chen Xinran, who was at the side, couldn’t understand it. What did she eat today? Isn’t she usually unbelievably slow? How is she so fast? She couldn’t help but also begin to speed up her pace.
In the boys’ eyes, Liu Xu’s action was hilarious, seeing her suffocated face as she ran with all her might and the trembling of her body fats along with her steps. Not to mention every time she passed them, they would be able to hear her heavily gasping for air with extreme clarity and even feel the synthetic tracks slightly tremble…
Eventually, there was a boy who couldn’t help but laugh out first, and many more people unhesitantly began following suit, laughing at Liu Xu.
“Look at her, being like this. She’s really a laughing matter. She’s just like a pig.”
“Exactly, exactly. When she ran past just now, I even thought there was an earthquake. Hahahaha.”
“Hahaha, her body fats are shaking. It’s just like those pork weighed by butchers in the food market.”
“Say, could it be that she’s second senior brother’s little sister?”
When these boys were done, even some of the girls who were running couldn’t help but also laugh out.
More boys had even begun to call Liu Xu “second junior sister”.
The ridicules incessantly stabbed her from behind, causing Liu Xu’s face to turn red. She firmly clenched both of her fists, trying hard to suppress the anger in her heart. She ran forward at a heavy pace, wanting to get rid of all those malicious attacks.
Just that, she didn’t expect that she’d fall.
The gravel on the ground slit her tender palms, and the scorching pain made her break down in tears. It really hurts. It’s really painful…
Why? Why? Could it be that just because she was fat, she had to be ridiculed by everyone so much?
More and more began to run past her to the finish. There was a sense of pain in her heart. Nobody was willing to sympathize with her. Liu Xu could hear the ridicules behind her back get even noisier, causing her heart to despair.
“Isn’t it painful to just lie on the ground?” A familiar cold yet clear voice of a girl entered Liu Xu’s ears.
There seemed to be a barely noticeable cold fragrance brushing past in front of her. Liu Xu tilted her head to one side. At the same time, astonishment and surprise appeared on her tear-filled face.
Qiao Jiuyue looked at Liu Xu, who was on the ground in a sorry state. She was truly just like a pitiful creature.
She squatted down and helped Liu Xu get up. Her smile was quite gentle, just like a spring breeze caressing Liu Xu’s heart.
To Liu Xu, who was staring with a blank expression, she smiled and encouraged: “Don’t give up. Believe in yourself. You definitely have the ability to run to the end.”
Everyone watched as the president unexpectedly held the hand of the fattie they had always condemned and looked down upon, and ran with her. One by one, they were left speechless from the astonishment. So in the end, were they hallucinating, or was the president not awake yet?
After she heard the PE teacher click the back of the stopwatch, Liu Xu felt a burst of discouragement in her heart. It seems that her run wasn’t going to pass.
But the PE teacher’s following words surprised her. “It took three minutes and fifty-nine seconds.”
Shocked, Liu Xu tightly held Qiao Jiuyue’s hand. She obviously couldn’t believe it. She really passed!
The discomfort on her hand made Qiao Jiuyue’s brows slightly crease, but she expressed with a smile: “Congratulations.”
“Thank… Thank you, president.” Liu Xu blushed and lowered her head, not daring to look at Qiao Jiuyue.
When she lowered her head, she caught sight of her hand tightly clutching the president’s. There was even a red handprint left on her fair hand. The frightened Liu Xu promptly released her hand and apologized: “I… I’m sorry… I…”
Before she could finish her words, Qiao Jiuyue began to talk first: “It doesn’t matter. Do your best on the long jumps. I have something I need to do, so I’ll be going first.”
“Okay… President, walk… slowly…”
Just as Qiao Jiuyue turned around, the system’s voice rang in her ears: [Liu Xu’s current favorability towards the host has risen to 90, and the happiness value has risen to 50.]
The PE teacher scrutinized the stopwatch in his hand. How strange. How is it that it went so slowly?
The corners of Qiao Jiuyue’s mouth pulled to form a faint smile. “Restore the operation of time.”
[The operation of time has been restored to normal.]
Just as the PE teacher wanted to smack the stopwatch in his hand, he found that the stopwatch had gone back to normal. Strange indeed…
Chen Xinran smiled and went towards Liu Xu. She inquired: “Liu Xu, how is it that I never knew you were so familiar with the president?”
“When I was previously carrying my books, the books accidentally fell to the floor. Just then, the president passed by and helped me.” Liu Xu explained, deliberately leaving out how the book actually fell because of Xu Hui’s bullying. If she had told her, with Chen Xinran’s character, It was uncertain whether she would come up to find Xu Hui to settle the debts. She didn’t want to involve her friend because of her own matters. After all, it was better to avoid unnecessary trouble.
Chen Xinran was immediately enlightened: “Oh, so it was actually like that.”
At this moment, the PE teacher interrupted the two’s conversation. “Chen Xinran. Where is Chen Xianran? It’s your turn to jump.”
“You can do it!” Liu Xu cheered her from the side.
“En.” As soon as she turned around to where Liu Xu couldn’t see her, the smile on her face immediately vanished.
Qiao Jiuyue stood beside the classroom window, her eyes attentively observing the crowd on the sports field from beginning to end. She then unscrewed the mineral water in her hand and drank a few mouthfuls.
“Liu Xu, you’re next.” The PE teacher informed.
Both Liu Xu’s legs were positioned right in front of the white line. Not long after, both her legs bent downwards as her arms were swinging back and forth.
Just as she was getting ready to move, “Pfft–” No one knew who laughed out first, but it caused many more people to whisper, their words filled with mockery.
“Being like this, she really resembles a penguin.”
“Don’t, the penguin is too adorable. She… I still think second junior sister fits her best.”
“Heh… I have to keep my distance around her. Otherwise, wouldn’t it just be the same as waiting for her to smash a crater unto the ground?”
“Right right right. Thinking of how I’ve lived past a decade, I never would’ve expected that in just one day, today, I would experience a second earthquake.”
“I bet her jump won’t cross it, for sure.”
“Aren’t you just spouting nonsense? Just watch whether she would even be able to do the jump.” A girl uttered.
“Look, this damned fattie is still grieving. Is she not going to jump after all?” A girl continued.
“Exactly. Don’t waste time. If you don’t want to jump, just go away. You jumping and not jumping won’t make any difference anyway.”
Endless grievances bubbled up in Liu Xu’s mind. She clenched her fists and swung her arms. But she still couldn’t jump that single step.
When the PE teacher saw them going overboard with their words, he criticized them: “Why are you being so noisy? Do you dislike your scores being too high? Do you want to retake the test?”
After hearing how everyone behind her had obediently shut up, the PE teacher directly looked at the stopwatch in his hand and instructed Liu Xu: “Liu Xu, relax, believe in yourself, and jump.”
Liu Xu gritted her teeth. Qiao Jiuyue’s encouragement and her schoolmates’ ridicules kept reverberating in her ears. She used all the strength she had to make her feet jump forward. At the same time, her arms were slightly bent upwards and were swung, her entire person leaning forward as she leapt…
After she landed, she lowered her head, tears swirling in the rims of her eyes as she prepared herself to take the incoming ridicules.
But there was nothing, even after waiting for a few minutes and until the PE teacher’s voice sounded behind her, carrying a hint of disbelief. “Liu Xu is the first female student to get full marks!”
The students surrounding her began to flare up, staring straight at where Liu Xu was standing. They were attempting to think from the inside to find an issue to bring up. Maybe the teacher was mistaken.
Too bad, the spot where Liu Xu stood was indeed really the full marks line.
“What the f*ck!!!” Surprised, a boy burst into swearing.
“Holy mother, did I see wrong?”
“The heck, she-she-she-she actually jumped over it! She even got full marks!”
“Whoa, aren’t I awake? Hurry hurry hurry, hurry pinch me once.”
“This… How could she jump so far? Did she not cheat? She definitely cheated.” The person who said this was clearly confused by their annoyance, completely forgetting that this wasn’t a written test.
“Cheat your head. How could she possibly cheat? This isn’t a written test.”
Qiao Jiuyue raised her eyebrows and took the mineral water next to her, before then going outside.
Liu Xu herself was also surprised speechless. An immeasurable amount of happiness rushed inside her heart. She, she really jumped over it! How unimaginable! She even received full marks! Is she really not dreaming?!
Chen Xinran ran towards Liu Xu’s side and said with a smile: “Liu Xu, you’re too amazing! That was really the first full marks!”
Seeing how happy her best friend was, Liu Xu was naturally even happier. She expressed: “I also didn’t expect to be able to jump over it.”
“Tell me the truth, did you repeatedly practice in secret?”
“I didn’t. I don’t even know how I managed to jump over it.”
“Too bad you didn’t see it. After seeing you jump over it, the expressions on these people’s faces were quite a sight. What Li Xu did was amazing.”
Liu Xu’s face turned red because of what she had just said. At the same time, a feeling she had never felt before rose in her heart. Is this what they call joy…
Qiao Jiuyue leanly sat on the rooftop. Her hands were clasped on her chest and her eyes were closed as she listened to the two’s conversation. It was indeed extremely boring.
She looked up at the screen. Chen Xinran was observing Liu Xu’s figure, the smile on the corners of her mouth gradually disappearing, entirely replaced by a gloomy face…
“Heh, interesting.” Qiao Jiuyue muttered.
Fu the update schedule. I finish, I upload.
So if I don’t upload when I’m supposed to, something’s probably preventing me from finishing the chapter (e.g. assignments, no internet access, not enough brain cells, lack of motivation, etc.).
