MY BEAUTIFUL BRIDE, VOLUME 7 - Season 11 Episode 47
The teacher was still a little surprised. “Well, this, this…”
“It’s okay, Teacher. I’ll take responsibility if something goes wrong.”
Looking at a child calmly say something about taking responsibility, even the teacher felt a little shocked.
At such a young age, this child had truly become perfect.
The teacher nodded and quickly went on stage.
“Next, we have a child who is going to have a special performance.”
The parents were still eating pumpkin seeds and chatting off stage. When they heard the teacher say this, they did not pay much attention to her.
The teacher said, “This child’s name is Gu Shinian.”
When everyone heard the name, the atmosphere turned lively. This Gu Shinian sounded very impressive.
Caicai’s mother was already looking up in surprise. She looked at the stage and was curious about what this Gu Shinian who had triggered a quarrel earlier was like.
The teacher said, “Gu Shinian will perform photographic memory for everyone.”
As she spoke, Gu Shinian walked onto the stage.
The mothers who had just been chatting earlier saw the little boy go on stage. He lifted his head in a calm manner and looked downwards. He did not look fearful at all and looked down undaunted. His unsmiling face was clean and fair, and he looked so adorable and handsome.
Because he was still young, that perfect face of his still had a hint of adolescent adorableness. With one glance, he made everyone’s heart soften.
“Whose child is this? He’s so handsome.”
“His face really makes me want to go to him and kiss him.”
“At such a young age, he’s dressed so impeccably. He doesn’t look at all like a child.”
“With that face, he’s going to bewitch so many young girls when he grows up.”
“He’s so devilishly handsome. So devilishly handsome at such a young age.”
Caicai’s mother and the others definitely did not know that this “rotten child” called Gu Shinian was actually not as ridiculously tall, strong, and plump and malicious as they had imagined. On the contrary, he was such a dashing little boy.
He was definitely not as they had expected.
Lin Che was currently inside, looking at the stage. When she saw Gu Shinian stand on stage, she was very shocked for a moment.
She would not have been surprised if Gu Shinian had not appeared. Gu Shinian’s personality was simply like this. He did not like places with crowds, nor did he like performing.
But now, Gu Shinian had actually jumped on stage all of a sudden and was about to perform.
Lin Che was genuinely surprised.
Gu Shinian asked, “Does any uncle or auntie have a book they can give me right now?”
Immediately, one of the fathers brought a history book to him.
Gu Shinian read it and said, “Allow me to read it for ten minutes, thank you.”
He flipped the book open and started reading it.
Sensing the situation, the people off stage started talking.
“Such a young child, can he even read?”
“Such a young child can recognize words? Impossible.”
They felt that their own children were still at the stage of playing around. It would be pretty good if they could memorize some poems. How could there be anyone as amazing as this child?
A short while later, he finished reading one page and immediately returned the book to that father. He raised his head and recited in a clear and bright voice, “In BC 118…”
The people down below gasped in surprise. That father had initially been doubtful too. However, when he looked at the words on the page, not even a single punctuation mark was wrong. His expression became more and more astonished.
He looked at the child in disbelief and nodded repeatedly. “He’s a child genius. He’s amazing.”
Down below, the people started discussing it even more intensely. They wondered if it was real or fake. How peculiar.
However, Caicai’s mother and the others also felt as if they had been proven wrong. For a moment, Caicai’s mother glared in front and scoffed, saying, “I bet that was a prop. It was designed for the performance.”
The others said in confusion, “But that seemed to be Chenchen’s father. I know him.”
Caicai’s mother said, “Money talks. Hmph. He must have memorized this beforehand.”
Her eyes brightened and she took out a book of computer circuit designs which she used in learning computer science. She looked up and said, “I have a book here too. Can he memorize this one?”
Everyone looked at her.
The teacher wondered if this would be a bit too much for him to memorize. However, she heard Gu Shinian say after glancing downwards, “Okay. Sure.”
The teacher looked at him, skeptically. While doubting him, she went down to take the book that Caicai’s mother was holding.
The teacher immediately saw the complex sequences in the book. It even made her scalp tingle.
But Gu Shinian merely smiled a little. He had already read books like this one before.
He randomly flipped to a page and skimmed over it. Then, he handed it back to Caicai’s mother and said, “I’m done reading it. Listen.”
Caicai’s mother scoffed before taking the book from him and reading it.
Gu Shinian merely smiled a little before directly proceeding to recite.
He even recited those complex formulas very fluently.
Caicai’s mother was surprised at first. Thereafter, her scalp started tingling.
Was there really such a thing on earth as a child genius?
But how could this be? She really could not believe it.
However, the truth before her eyes was indeed proving her wrong. She was momentarily stunned. She looked in front and was in a bit of a trance from the shock.
Just then, on stage, Gu Shinian smiled and said, “Today, I would like to thank my mother for coming to attend my parent-teacher conference. Initially, I had never thought about performing. I decided at the last minute to perform for my mother. I hope my mother liked it.”
Gu Shinian had already unknowingly captured the hearts of many mothers off stage.
Good gracious! He was literally the child they all wanted. He was so adorable, so handsome, so smart, and such a genius.
Lin Che was extremely touched.
Did Niannian perform because of her?
Lin Che really did not expect Niannian to be so thoughtful at such a young age.
She quickly ran downstairs amidst the exclamations of admiration. She looked in Niannian’s direction and said, touched, “Niannian!”
Gu Shinian looked up. “Mother, you’re here.”
Lin Che ran over and embraced Gu Shinian in one swift motion. “Niannian, thank you. You’re so thoughtful and so smart. You did so well, but…”
Lin Che looked at him. “When did you read so many books?”
Gu Shinian was lost for words…
Lin Che found it very surprising too. This little brain of Gu Shinian’s… exactly how much had it been developed?
Gu Shinian said, “Mother, that’s enough. I can’t even breathe because you’re hugging me.”
Lin Che was truly too excited. She hugged Gu Shinian and kissed him forcefully.
The people off stage were all looking on with their faces filled with envy. They were looking at this beautiful mother and beautiful child.
It was no wonder that the child was so beautiful. Since the mother was so beautiful, the child’s genes would be no different.
Lin Che walked off the stage with Gu Shinian. Everyone off stage proceeded to applaud.
Lin Che sincerely felt that Niannian’s actions made her even happier and prouder than when she attained the award for Best Female Lead at the Golden Name Awards.
The parent-teacher conference ended in a sea of cheers.
The parents all left with their respective children.
When Lin Che left with Gu Shinian in tow, she happened to see Caicai’s mother with her child too.
Lin Che pulled Gu Shinian with her and they walked past them from the side.
As she looked at the adult and the child, the mother and the son, stand amidst these people as if they were the focal point, Caicai’s mother had a strange expression on her face.
