"What a beautiful sweater, did you make it yourself?"
"My older sister made it for me. It's a new pattern called 'double pearls.'"
"Let's go home together after class, meet me downstairs."
"Would fate be kind to me?"
“You can go home if you’re sure you’ll study.”
“Teacher Zhang, since it’s self-study, can we go home to do it?”
This scene is in the beginning of the chapter when Ji-li and all the other students Xin-zha are in the auditorium on the first day of junior high school.
Thanks a lot! You really saved my life!
This is the scene when Ji-li and An Yi are going to their classes and they agree on walking home together at the end of the day. When An Yi leaves Ji-li to go to class, she stands outside her classroom door and wonders too herself if fate will be kind to her and not let anyone in her new class know about her black history so she can start off with a clean slate.
“Five students failed, and two, Bai Shan and Jiang Ji-li, got one hundred percent.”
“Wow, a hundred again.That’s great!”
This is the scene when Bai Shan asks Teacher Zhang if he could go home to self study. That was after Teacher Zhang announced that the next period was study hall and you were to study by yourself.
He just wants to talk to them about joining the propaganda group for the blackboard newspaper, because they both have beautiful handwriting.
Ha ha ha!
This is the scene when the class was instructed to take out their Precious Red Books and wish long life to Chairman Mao, but Ji-li washed her jacket and forgot to put it back in her pocket. Luckily, the girl infront of her took off the cover of her Red Book and put it on Ji-li's desk so she could at least wave the cover so she wouldn't get in trouble.
This is the scene when Teacher Li announced that Ji-li and Bai Shan both got a one hundred percent and five students failed.
This is the scene when Teacher Li reassures them that Ji-li and Bai Shan weren't in trouble but Teacher Zhang just wanted to talk to them about joining a group. She had to reassure them because everyone in the class including Ji-li and Bai Shan were scared because they thought they were in trouble but didn't know why.
