students below reluctantly responded, “Yes.”

Teacher sighed and shook his head, then began to call roll.
After he’d called out more than half the names, Zhou Er Pang arrived late.

“I’m sorry, Teacher!” Zhou Er Pang smiled sheepishly. 

“You still know to be sorry!” Teacher was in a bad mood because of the students’ conduct just now, so he was a little angry when he saw that Zhou Er Pang was late.

“……What’s wrong with Teacher?” Zhou Er Pang’s smile stagnated and he softly asked the student beside him after he went back to his seat.

Zhou Er Pang was the leader of the children, so without waiting for him to ask in detail, the people around him competed5 to tell him about what had happened just now.

“So that’s how it is,” Zhou Er Pang was lost in thought.

Today’s class was to comment on everyone’s Dragon Boat Festival short essay along with giving out the first place award.

When Teacher spoke about Yu Yuan’s essay, Zhou Er Pang suddenly stood up and said, “Teacher, I think that Yu Yuan isn’t only excellent in studies, but also in character.

“For example, about what happened today, even if I’d been there, I probably wouldn’t have dared to act first6,” Zhou Er Pang frankly said.
“I want to thank Yu Yuan.”

After saying that, he faced Yu Yuan and thanked him with utmost sincerity.

Yu Yuan didn’t speak or clarify anything.

After Zhou Er Pang thanked him, he just faintly nodded his head.

Zhou Er Pang was the leader of the children, so when everyone saw that he had taken a stand, and remembering what they had done, they were somewhat embarrassed, so they successively thanked Yu Yuan.

For a moment, the classroom was noisy.

Teacher was very satisfied.
He took out a bunch of dumplings and gave them to Yu Yuan under everyone’s envious gaze.

“This is the reward for first place,” Teacher said.

Yu Yuan accepted it and gave it to Yan Mu.

Yan Mu thought for a while and said to Yu Yuan, “Can I give the dumplings to everyone?”

The Yan Family’s material conditions were better now, so for the two of them, dumplings were no longer a rare thing.
But for the other children in the village, dumplings were something that they might not be able to eat for a year.

Yan Mu wasn’t a saint, it’s just that Yu Yuan still had to study at school.
If everyone could look at him in a different light, he would feel more comfortable there.

“I gave it to you, do whatever you want with it.” Yu Yuan naturally understood Yan Mu’s diligence.
He continued to look at his book after speaking.

“Yan Mu, are you really going to give them to us?” Zhou Er Pang was shocked.

“Yes,” Yan Mu nodded her head, then smiled and said, “It’s just that after eating Yu Yuan’s dumplings, you guys can’t speak ill of him anymore.”

“One who accepts favors is unlikely to act impartially7.
If you bully Yu Yuan again, watch out for the glutinous rice gluing your mouth when you go to bed at night!” Teacher smiled and joked from above.

The students were a little embarrassed.

After seeing this, Zhou Er Pang took the first dumpling calmly.
The others were silent for a while, then they all took the dumplings.

“I’m sorry, Yu Yuan,” Someone started to whisper first, then followed by a second and third.

Yan Mu glanced at Yu Yuan and saw that although he still maintained the appearance of reading a book, the hands that were holding it were slightly trembling.
She covered her mouth and secretly laughed.

Seeing Yu Yuan so generous, Teacher admired him even more.

*************

After class ended, Teacher called Yu Yuan over, along with Yan Mu.

But Teacher only spoke to Yu Yuan alone and left Yan Mu outside the door.
Yan Mu could only count the leaves out of boredom.

In the room, without waiting for Yu Yuan to speak, Teacher shot a question at him8, “Yu Yuan, do you want to leave the mountain?”

Yu Yuan frowned and was about to speak, but what Teacher said next made his entire body freeze in place.

—— “I can bring you to the capital.”
