180 Unspoken Rules?
To play “Flight of the Bumblebee”, one had to basically memorize the score, know all the notes and have quick hands.
Everyone was shocked when the song Qiao Yue picked. When this song was played, the mallets would look like they were struck until sparks flew.
“Alright, let’s start.” Jin Lu stood next to Qiao Yue with her arms crossed. She looked at Qiao Yue with no intention of stopping her.
Qiao Yue took a deep breath and struck the first note on the marimba with her mallet. The rest of the notes followed.
Although the beat sounded a little off, it was covered up by the speed of the piece.
Qiao Yue played the piece at such great speed that it sounded almost like the symphony.
Her hands left only afterimages as they flew.
Everyone watched Qiao Yue play the marimba with their mouths wide open. For a moment, they didn’t know what they were listening to.
Qiao Xin stood before her own marimba with a long face.
Although Qiao Yue’s performance wasn’t elegant, all her notes were correct. Qiao Yue’s eyes also didn’t look at the score at all when she played.
She must have the memory of a child prodigy.
On the other hand, Jin Lu showed no surprise on her face. Instead, she looked at Qiao Yue with a mysterious smile.
Qiao Xin’s face turned red as the music continued and reached its climax. How was this Qiao Yue so good that he could memorize the entire piece and know the positions of all the notes in such a short time?
The two boys who took the lead in mocking Qiao Yue were also speechless. They only glared at Qiao Yue fiercely.
What was up with Qiao Yue recently? Not only did he start studying hard, but he even dared to compete with Qiao Xin in music class.
At the end of the song, other than the few people who were close to Qiao Xin, the rest of the class applauded.
Someone even took the lead and said, “Encore. Encore.”
Qiao Yue rotated her wrists and said to Jin Lu, “Teacher, what do you think?”
Jin Lu smiled. “Both students played very well. Qiao Xin has a strong sense of musicality and Qiao Yue has great memory. It’s indeed impressive that you played so well today if you had zero foundation.”
After she finished speaking, she picked up a mallet and handed it to Qiao Yue.
Qiao Yue was a little confused but took the mallet.
Jin Lu took a step forward and grabbed Qiao Yue’s hand that was holding the mallet.
Qiao Yue frowned as she looked at Jin Lu. Subconsciously she wanted to pull back her hand.
Jin Lu still had a gentle smile on her face. She held Qiao Yue’s hand and adjusted her grip.
“However, Qiao Yue, you have to pay more attention in class next time. The way you held the mallets just now was incorrect. If you played more holding the mallets like that, you will hurt your wrist.”
Her voice was very soft, and there was a faint jasmine scent on her body.
If Qiao Yue wasn’t a girl, she might have been enamored by Jin Lu’s actions.
“How is it? Does your wrist feel better now?”
Jin Lu turned to look at Qiao Yue, her eyes shining.
Qiao Yue praised her company’s talent scouts for being increasingly capable. Even such an artiste would sign with KA’s entertainment company. But did people like this style now?
Seeing that Qiao Yue didn’t respond, Jin Lu withdrew her hand and walked back to the other students.
Xu Hao, who was standing in front of Qiao Yue, looked at her and said, “You are really lucky with the ladies. This teacher is a real stunner.”
These words made Qiao Yue feel a little uncomfortable. What was Jin Lu trying to do with this intimate gesture? Was she trying to use her to climb up the ranks? Was she trying to play by some unspoken rules?
Very soon, it was time for class to end. Qiao Yue packed her things and was about to leave when Jin Lu called out to her.
“Qiao Yue, please come with me to the office.”
Jin Lu still had that gentle look on her face. When she looked at Qiao Yue, she tilted her head slightly. She didn’t look like a teacher at all, more like a little girl who’s acting cute in front of her crush.
When they arrived at the office, Jin Lu took out a bottle of safflower seed oil from a drawer. She pulled Qiao Yue’s wrist and was about to apply some oil on her.
“Teacher Jin, if there’s something you would like to say, just say it.” Qiao Yue wasn’t used to this kind of fawning behavior. She frowned, took a step back and pulled her hand away.
“You are the real person in charge of KA, right?”
After Jin Lu said this, she wiped the smile off her face and looked at Qiao Yue.
“I didn’t expect the person in charge to be a student at an elite academy. I couldn’t believe it at first.”
Her face then turned cold as she kept the safflower seed oil in her bag and stared at Qiao Yue.
“Who told you that?”
