Zhan Pengcheng and Zhan Weiguang left one after the other.

       Every night before Zhan Weiyang went to bed, he heard that cold female voice telling him, “User’s score today: 50 points.”

       He thought glumly, Why did the initial score become so low? It would definitely upset Zhan Pengcheng if he found out.

       This condition lasted until Zhan Weiyang officially started school.

       He set two alarm clocks in the morning. Not long after the first one rang, he was about to fall asleep again. Before the second alarm clock rang, Auntie Luo knocked on the door outside and called him loudly, “Weiyang, get up. You’re going to be late!”

       Zhan Weiyang struggled to open his eyes.

       Auntie Luo had an imposing manner that wouldn’t relent until Zhan Weiyang got up and opened the door. She knocked on the door forcefully, making a loud banging sound, “Today is the first day of class; you can’t be late!”

       Zhan Weiyang could only reply loudly, “I’m up!”

       Auntie Luo did not continue to knock on the door but shouted at the door, “I’ll give you ten minutes. I’ll knock on the door again if you don’t come down for breakfast.”

       Zhan Weiyang said, “Right away!”

       He lifted the blanket, got out of bed, and opened the wardrobe to take out the school uniform he hadn’t worn for the entire summer vacation. He put it on slowly, then, half-squinting, opened the door and headed towards the bathroom.

       Zhan Weiyang was brushing his teeth in the bathroom, then lazily poured cold water on his face and used it to wash. However, when the cold water hit him, he became more awake. After washing and peeing, Zhan Weiyang came out of the bathroom, and the steps back to the room became faster.

       After folding the quilt first and then packing his schoolbag, it was exactly ten minutes when Zhan Weiyang went downstairs. He saw only his grandma sitting at the dining table. She was wearing a thin sweater over her short-sleeved coat, with her hands in the sleeves. The table in front of her was empty, apparently, she was waiting for Zhan Weiyang.

       Auntie Luo brought milk, eggs and steamed buns from the kitchen and placed them in front of Zhan Weiyang, urging him, “Eat quickly, don’t be late.”

       Zhan Weiyang quickly picked up the buns with chopsticks and stuffed them into his mouth.

       Grandma said, “Eat slowly, eat slowly, don’t choke.”

       Zhan Weiyang glanced back at the living room, then turned back with the bun in his mouth and asked, “Where’s Qing ge?”

       Auntie Luo habitually wiped the not-dirty dining table with a rag and said, “Qing ge doesn’t go to work until nine o’clock. He can’t get up that early.”

       Zhan Weiyang said, “Oh”.

       Grandma said, “Yangyang, study hard. In a few years, you will be able to sleep in when you go to university.”

       Zhan Weiyang didn’t know what to say, so he just nodded. By the time he finished eating the buns, Auntie Luo had already eagerly peeled off the egg shells for him. He was eating eggs and drinking milk at the same time. He was so anxious that he choked. He raised his hand to pat his chest and put down the bowl. He stood up and said, “I’m going to school.”

       Auntie Luo said, “Go quickly, go quickly.”

       Grandma waved her hand, “Be safe on the road.”

       Zhan Weiyang grabbed the schoolbag that was thrown on the chair next to him, slung the strap over one shoulder, and hurriedly walked to the door to change his shoes.

       Auntie Luo walked him to the door and stood by to watch him change his shoes. When he went out, she still said, “Hurry up, don’t be late.”

       Zhan Weiyang had no choice but to start running. He ran through a garden, slowed down and looked back. He found that Auntie Luo could no longer be seen, so he continued to slow down and walk forward.

       His mobile phone was in the trouser pocket of his school uniform. There were still forty minutes until class. He was still early and would not be late.

       After squeezing into the bus at the gate of the neighbourhood, Zhan Weiyang found several students wearing their school uniforms on the bus. The school was not far from home, and it only took more than ten minutes by bus. Sometimes, Zhan Weiyang also rode a bicycle, which took about the same amount of time as catching the bus.

       He stood in the middle corner of the bus, took out his mobile phone from his trousers pocket, and began to send a message to Chen Youyou: “When will you arrive at school?”

       When the bus arrived at the next stop, Chen Youyou didn’t reply to him. He had no choice but to stuff his cell phone into his trouser pocket and squeeze himself into the corner with the flow of people getting on the bus.

       The phone was pressed against his thigh through a thin layer of fabric. If Chen Youyou responded to a message, it would vibrate, and he would know it.

       Zhan Weiyang has been thinking about Beginner’s Love System these days. Before he went to bed last night, he was thinking that the first person he met at the entrance to the school today would be the one he was going to pursue, and he wondered what kind of person it would be. He suddenly remembered the tall and strong boy in Class 7. The boy glared at him fiercely in the corridor last time. If the first person he met were that kind of person, it would be difficult to pursue him. Or maybe if it was their class monitor, a very beautiful girl whose boyfriend was the president of the school student union, and it would be hard for him to pursue her.

       So he thought it would be great if that person were Chen Youyou. Chen Youyou was his good friend. It would be much easier to pursue him, and maybe he would get full marks soon.

       It was a pity that Chen Youyou never responded to his message.

       The closer the bus got to the school platform, the more students got on, and the entire bus was already full. Zhan Weiyang was not short, but he was still squeezed to the left and right. After finally reaching a stop in front of the school, the bus’s back door opened, and all the students who had just started the new semester flowed out.

       When he got off the bus, a girl was squeezed and almost fell down. Zhan Weiyang quickly reached out to support her. The girl blushed and thanked him.

       Zhan Weiyang shook his head, pulled the shoulder strap of his schoolbag, put his hands in his pants pockets and walked toward the school gate.

       There were people coming and going at the school gate. In addition to students, there were many parents dropping off their children. The driveway at the school gate was occupied by all kinds of cars. Traffic police rode their motorbikes to direct the traffic in front of the school, telling the parents to drive their cars away quickly.

       Zhan Weiyang stopped at the school gate and took out his mobile phone for the last time, but still didn’t see Chen Youyou’s reply.

       He looked around and saw people everywhere. All he heard in his ears were noisy conversations. The sun had come out, clinging to the last trace of summer heat. He couldn’t help but squint his eyes. He thought that maybe he shouldn’t cheat; maybe the System knew.

       So Zhan Weiyang took a deep breath, walked to the school gate, lowered his head and walked straight in without looking at anyone.

       He took five steps in total, counting silently in his mind before he bumped into someone else. He quickly raised his head and saw in front of him a tall, handsome young man, also wearing a school uniform, with the corners of his mouth pursed at a slightly serious angle.

       Zhan Weiyang heard a ‘ding’ in his head, and the female voice said to him: “The capture target has been confirmed.”

       The young man glanced at him, turned around and walked towards the school.

       Zhan Weiyang stood there and took a moment to react. He took his mobile phone out of his pocket and took a photo of the young man’s back to fix his target.

       Not long after that day, Zhan Weiyang found out that the young man’s name was Xie Ling, and he was a freshman in the school. During the opening ceremony, Xie Ling spoke on the podium on behalf of all the freshman students. He introduced his name to all the students in the school.

       Next to Zhan Weiyang stood Chen Youyou.

       Chen Youyou sounds like a girl’s name, but the person was actually a boy, about the same height as Zhan Weiyang, and very thin. During the summer vacation, his mother took me to the barbershop to get a haircut because there was chewing gum stuck in his hair, and his hair hadn’t grown out yet.

       Zhan Weiyang and Chen Youyou looked up at Xie Ling on the podium at the same time.

       After a while, Zhan Weiyang lowered his voice and called Chen Youyou, “Chen Youyou.”

       Chen Youyou turned to look at him, “Huh?”

       Zhan Weiyang hesitated for a while and then said, “Look at that Xie Ling.”

       Chen Youyou’s face was full of confusion, “Huh?”

       Zhan Weiyang couldn’t explain the so-called Beginner’s Love System to him, but he needed some help from Chen Youyou. He often needed Chen Youyou’s help, and the most important thing was that Chen Youyou lent him homework to copy. And now, as a person who had never been in love or even had feelings for him since birth, he needed Chen Youyou to teach him how to have a relationship with a boy.

       He then made up his mind and said, “I’m going to pursue him.”

       “W-what?” Chen Youyou blurted out with wide eyes; his voice was a little loud, and the homeroom teacher standing in front of them glanced at them.

       Chen Youyou usually spoke very concisely. It was not that he didn’t like to talk, but he didn’t want to talk because he stutters. His family had taken him to various hospitals and institutions for correction since he was a child. Even now, he still couldn’t help but stuttering when he was anxious, like now.
