My name is Chen Xiaoxi. The most important thing in my life is drawing. Drawing. And… maybe just drawing. But when I was 16 the most important thing for me was him. JC, stop dreaming. I won’t marry you. His name is Jiang Chen. We live in the same building,
so we go to school together every day. Jiang Chen, let’s go to school together. No. He often invites me to study with him. We help each other, and make progress together. He’s very nice to me and has never been angry. Chen Xiaoxi! The only problem is,
he walks so fast that I can’t follow him. It seems like I was always
running after him when I was young. But I believe he’s also waiting for me secretly. Episode 1
Dear Jiang Chen Beautiful Chenxi School, let dreams fly. Welcome to Chenxi School,
a nationally prestigious school. Today you are proud of Chenxi School,
tomorrow Chenxi School will be proud of you. Jiang Chen, we are in the same class again. This is called destiny, don’t you think so? So the entry score of this school
is quite low this year. Five points lower than last year. Thanks to that five points,
or I wouldn’t be able to get in. How lucky I am! Jiang Chen. I like you. I don’t like you. Okay… I’ll figure it out. What should I do? How to make boys fall in love with you? Be pretty. Be smart. Look at my oval face, pretty enough. Be pretty. Be smart. I don’t like that novel. Girl, our tastes are different. Chen Xiaoxi. I recommend you a new one. Masterpiece. No. Hand in your test paper. Seriously, Chen Xiaoxi? Copy my answers? You always copy others’ answers,
so why were you admitted to our school? This test paper is quite easy,
so I finished it very quickly. Shame on me. Haven’t you finished it an hour ago? Come on. This is the fifth one. The listening comprehension test
was very easy this time. – Was it?
– Jiang Chen! He is so handsome! I think the test was overall very easy. The writing section was hard,
I’ve never wrote anything about it before. The title was “Pursue Your Dream”. Jiang Chen, what do you think? I didn’t write too many words, only about 1,000. I had many thoughts about this topic. “Pursue Your Dream” was the sample composition. The title of our composition was “Impartiality.” You didn’t know that? Look at your English test score.
Your writing is totally off-topic. Look at your rank in our grade. Fall back 75 places than last time. Keep up with this pace. After two more tests,
you will be the student with the lowest score. Think about Jiang Chen. You are from the same junior high. How come he can have the highest score every time? While you always have the lowest? I understand, Ms. Liu. I will learn from Jiang Chen. Thank you, madam. You and I are similar in ranks. How about we form a team? How about “Dragon and Tiger”? Jiang Chen, can you do me a favor? She is Li Wei. How can I help you? The grammar we learned today
is a little confusing for me. Can you explain it to me? – Tiger, you need to say something.
– Okay. What seems confusing to you? Who do you think is prettier, me or her? Her? She is prettier. I’m not pretty enough to team up with you. Don’t worry. That’s why you’d look like a tiger. How could we judge people by their score? Be considerate. Try to prepare breakfast for him,
showing your tender love. – Morning.
– Morning. Steamed buns for you. Please don’t prepare this for me again. Day 2, 7:00 a.m.
Fried Dough Sticks. Jiang. I read another version of the book
I recommended to you yesterday. It’s not bad. But I think it lacks some social criticisms. I’m impressed. Don’t mention it. Chen. You’re the smartest girl I’ve ever seen. Maybe Jiang Chen has already left? It’s almost eight. It’s your fifth time of this month to be late. Grade 1, Class 8, Chen Xiaoxi. Only seven days of this month have past. Day 3, 6:00 a.m. Preparing breakfast doesn’t work. Confess your love. Stand up. – Good morning, sir.
– Good morning. Find the poem where we stopped last time. I wonder why my inlaid harp has fifty strings each with its fret an interval of youth. This poem is very bitterly
but beautifully written. The poet wrote it for his late wife
as a love letter. The sage Chuangzi is day-dreaming,
bewitched by butterflies. The spring-heart of Emperor Wang
is crying in a cuckoo, Mermen weep their pearly tears
down a moon-green sea. Blue fields are breathing their jade to the sun. And a moment that ought to have lasted forever has come and gone before I knew. Miss, do you need any help? Is there a book that can teach me
how write a love letter? Write what? Write compositions. Love is a temple? What? Lu Yang! Chen Xiaoxi, do you really think
this book can help you write a love letter? You don’t understand. Wait a minute. Don’t you know that I am the most popular guy
in Chenxi School? I have received at least 30 love letters. Do you know why they all wrote love letters to me? Why? Because I’m handsome, witty, and considerate. This book is much more reliable than you. I want to kneel down in front of you
and kiss your feet. Maybe you can teach me how to write it? Lu Yang. I’m having lunch. Here. Eat more. Lu Yang. Chen Xiaoxi. My father doesn’t allow me to have
a girlfriend who ranks at the bottom. I’m writing it to a guy in another school. All right. I’ll teach you,
but you need to do me a favor to pay back. My chicken wing. You received all of these? I wrote all of these. Aren’t you the popular guy? Why did you write these? If you received a letter,
you need to reply, right? That’s why I wrote these. To comfort others. You are like distributing flyers. If you help me send all these letters,
I’ll teach you. Okay, I will. You are the boss now. Let’s start with the first sentence. The opening sentence should
attract the reader’s attention. Distinguished… Stupid. We need a very hot opening. Hot. Write like this: I love you. Isn’t it too hot? Continue. I love your eyes. I love your eyebrows. I love your reflection in my heart
that stirs a ripple. Good. Flip it. You will experience a lot in your life. I hope in your memories I stay. My love is a tidal wave. A wave that pushes me toward you. Where do you live? Next to Chen Xiaoxi’s home. Are you going back? Li Wei, is your home in this direction? I… I’m going home. See you tomorrow. I wrote a poem today. I’m not sure if it’s a good one. Do you want to hear it? My love is a tidal wave. A wave that pushes me toward you. What do you think? What about the rhyme? If you’re free enough, do more exercises to get
a high score, instead of memorizing song lyrics. Song lyrics? My world has changed because of you. Let’s drift and wander together ♫ to make our lives full of… ♫ They are song lyrics! Hello. Xiaoxi, help! Log in your QQ now! I’ll add you to a group chat. I’ll talk to you in the group chat. Thank you so much! Accept. There’s an activity for Chris Lee’s fans tomorrow. It’ll be held in the city park. Get prepared! Can’t go. Tomorrow is my grandma’s birthday. My friend will be there for me. Will you go there tomorrow? Actually… I have something to do tomorrow. Why all of you are so busy?
What do you have to do? I can help you with that. I need to write a love letter. For my friend. Easy. I’ll help you do that. Stop there! I won’t say this again. So you need to remember my words. I like you. If you dare to say no to me. I will… I will make your school life
very miserable, by all means. If anyone wants to steal you from me I will kill… Who are you? Why do you eavesdrop? I’m not. This is a small campus,
and you were talking very loudly. Girl, is this school so horrible? So you are a gang boss? Gangster? Yes. So don’t mess up with me. I can’t count on her. I’ll write it myself. Worn. I really really like you!
You’re perfect in my mind! Worn. Correct. Okay, Lin Jingxiao. You can pick the next one. Chen Xiaoxi. Okay. Chen Xiaoxi. Hurry. Hurry. Respect. Organization. Balance. Balance. B-a-l-a-n-c-e. I know this one. Are you Wu Bosong, the new student? Yes, your majesty. I asked you to be here at eight. It’s already nine. Even though you have a sport specialty,
you still have to be in class on time. Come here. Go up there. Dictation practice. Boss, I’m relying on you. Modest. Modest. Don’t look at me, boss. I don’t know this one. What are you waiting for? Write the answer. I’ve told you that vocabulary is very important.
Why is it so hard? Are you copying her answers? Your English is probably better than hers. I still need to learn from you. Stop cracking jokes. Go sit down. Why do you only know that one word? Introduce yourself to your classmates. Hi, I’m the new student, Wu Bosong. I have a swimming specialty. We’ll be good friends! Go back to your seat. Miss, where should I sit? There. Boss. Why do you call her “boss”? We have a long story. Right, boss? Excuse me? Is Jiang Chen in the classroom? No. Where does he go? Well… What? He transferred to another school. Which school? I don’t know. Transfer? Okay, it’s free activity time. I need to be the first one. Dear Jiang Chen: Listen to me carefully. A carbon atom and an oxygen molecule. Water is the dispersant. Draw this graph. Okay? They usually exist as molecules or ions. We discussed this before, remember? What is this talking about? Dismiss the class. Thank you, Miss. Jiang Chen. I… Chen Xiaoxi, have you finished all your work? …wrote it with all my heart. How dare you! All you taught me were song lyrics. I can wrote way better than you. How can you know? Help me send it. Excuse me, is Qin Qiong in your class? He wrote this to you. Here you are. Don’t! – Sending love letter to our classmate?
– Give it back! Students in grade 1 are brave! – Where is our love heading to?
– Stop! – A distant place or your heart?
– Stop! – Can you allow me to live in your heart?
– Chen Xiaoxi, let’s go. A person who secretly loves you so much. I don’t drink alcohol,
but I feel dizzy when I’m with you. – Stop him!
– Chen Xiaoxi, don’t. Let’s go. Don’t leave so quickly.
I have some comments to share. Your writing sucks. My feet can write way better. Chen Xiaoxi and Lu Yang are quarreling
with some senior students. Tell us, did you write this? Why don’t you speak? Coward. What happened? They’re reading Lu Yang’s love letter. – Reading his love letter?
– Yes, that’s right. Can you read all the words alone? Read it to me now. Right now. No. I won’t listen to you, tomboy. I can help you brush your teeth, bro. Who are you? – A real cool boy.
– Psycho. If you like love letters, you can write some.
Don’t grab other’s. Look, she is my boss. Taking her stuff means messing up with me. Understand? You are so violent! I can be more violent. Want to try? Zhang Shiliang is coming this way. Bro, excellent. What have you learned?
Fighting with senior students? This should not happen in a school. Not a fight. We just quarreled. Lu Yang, shut up. Do you think being in the first year
is far from the college entrance exam? Once you become senior students,
you won’t have any time to regret! Who were in that fight? Who were watching? All get out of the classroom. Miss, it’s all my fault. You know that? Yes, it’s all your fault. Sending love letters
and fighting with senior students. Sending love letters to a senior student.
You like older girls? Miss Liu, your students have been
behaving badly for many days. – You have to punish them, or they’ll end up in prison.
– Okay. Give me all the other letters. They’re not here with me. Chen Xiaoxi, are you an accomplice? What do you have to do with his love letters?
Did he pay you? No. Give me. Where is our love heading to? A distant place or your heart? Can you allow me to live in your heart? A person who secretly loves you so much. I don’t drink alcohol,
but I feel dizzy when I’m with you. I’m drunk in your arms, in this chilly fall. You wrote all the same?
You should go distributing flyers. Oh no. He’s going to read mine. Sir, I think letters are student’s privacy.
Isn’t is inappropriate to read out? Students who write love letters
don’t have privacy. School has its rules. Sir, I don’t think the rules
would allow you to read other’s letters. Mr. Zhang, enough, stop reading. Sir, we already learned this lesson. All right. All of you,
write a self-criticism text to me. At least 1,000 words long,
or you’re not allowed to leave. Boss, I’ve never written anything like this.
Can you help me? I think you’re really good at it. Okay. I’ll help you after finishing mine. Hero. Here you are. Thank you, bro. You stood out for me today. I didn’t. Okay. I can teach you how to write this. No, thanks. You can’t write this.
It doesn’t sound like self-criticism. Teachers’ behaviors are not consistent
with quality education principles. You can’t write that.
I’m good at this. I can help you. You were so cool. They were bullying you. Why didn’t you fight back? Listen, next time, just… …beat them. Students in Class 8 are not cowards. I think the main reason was his writing. I was practicing. Lu Yang, you said
you were very popular among girls! All right. Anyways, thank you all. Let’s go to an internet bar after school.
How about that? No. I can’t go, either. My boss is not going. Me either. I’ll shoot once I see him. Good job, Jiang Chen. Good shooter, just like me. After today, we are closer than ever. Let’s form a team? Dragon and Tiger? You were hearing my chat with Xiaoxi. Bad boy. I mean we can have a new team. Wang Dazhuang’s team is G4. Our team can be…T3. Sounds so stupid.
No wonder your writing skill sucks. Better than your shooting skill. Lu Yang, it sounds like an airport terminal. Jiang Chen, you finally remember my name! It’s not too hard for me to remember your name. One more game. Ximen Quanxiu? Present. Women Are the Best? Present. Man Means Nothing to Woman? JC Love? Is JC Love here? Yes, I’m here. Floating Feather? Here. – Where’s the banner?
– Right. How could you put it in your bag? I spent so much time making this. A scratch on Chris Lee’s face! Why don’t you protect the banner carefully? Right. Sorry, I didn’t mean it. Okay, we need to find a way to solve this. I have an idea. Can I try? What? What is she doing? Show me a photo of Chris Lee. A pretty one. Hold it. Okay. She’s good! Please vote for Chris Lee. Vote for Chris Lee. Thank you so much for that. If it was not you, I would
have been scolded by them bitterly. By the way, who were you writing that letter to? How do you know I wrote that? “For my friend” usually means “for myself”. To Jiang Chen, right? My friend says yes. Your friend is so different. How can she likes such an icy person? You don’t understand. All right. I don’t understand. Only you understand. Preparing breakfast for Jiang Chen? It’s my destiny. I can’t twist his arm. Let’s go. Why are you smiling like that? I just feel happy to go to school with you. You didn’t receive my love letter, but I think you feel my love. Jiang Chen.
