Jiang ChengLi hadn’t slept well for several days in a row. Ever since that bizarre dream, he seemed to have developed some kind of weird obsession with that omega’s pheromones.
The water that fell on his fingertips while washing suddenly condensed into ice. Jiang ChengLi realized that a layer of light green scales had appeared on the back of his hand. In the next breath, the scales dissipated like a phantom, and the back of his hand returned to a cold white complexion.
The cell phone on his bedside rang. The little white cat on the bed was staring at the glowing screen like it was an enemy. Jiang ChengLi wiped his hand and clicked on the speakerphone.
“I found a newly differentiated omega. Sixteen years old. Girl. Sampled with consent. Are you coming to the Institute, or should I send it to you?” The gentle male voice inquired.
Jiang ChengLi took off his short sleeve shirt, set it to the side and removed the school uniform from the hanger. “Send it over. School is going to be busy.”
“Hmm.” Jiang Jing hesitated again. “Did you get up this morning and lose control?”
Jiang ChengLi’s slightly drooping eyelashes intertwined, not cold. “Yeah.”
“Strange…” Jiang Jing pondered for a moment. “Forget it, I’ll send you the pheromones first, you try to see if there is a reaction.”
Jiang ChengLi said yes in a light voice and touched a small row of teeth marks on his collarbone while donning his coat. His eyes lowered slightly. He suddenly remembered the strange fragrance that broke into his arms…
Those teeth were quite sharp.
Jiang ChengLi dressed neatly and went downstairs. Today was Monday. There was a newly differentiated omega that was going to transfer from the ordinary class to the special omega class so he needed to go back and update the student file.
He had just arrived at school when he received a message from Li Chen.
[Lian ZiJin went to trouble Shi Yu again and cut people off in front of the class.]
Lian ZiJin was standing guard at the door at 7:00 am. He stopped Shi Yu none too politely, had him rounded up and taken to the broadcasting room.
The students in class 6 probably knew why he was there. They despised Shi Yu for his dirty work and they praised the vice president for his unselfishness. As soon as Shi Yu entered the broadcasting room, he was pushed by several tall alphas who stood behind Lian ZiJin.
The alpha who grabbed his stuff snickered. “What a fucking pervert. A beta smelling of peaches and crazy for omegas?”
Shi Yu turned his head slightly and his eyes fell on Lian ZiJin sitting at the announcer’s desk.
“Today is your last day at this school, do you have anything to say?” Lian ZiJin nodded to the microphone with a subdued look. He had found Mr. Xiao’s phone number and was going to make Shi Yu infamous in front of the whole school today.
Shi Yu leered and smiled. “I’ll say whatever your last words are.”
“Give me face.” Lian ZiJin started the morning announcements, cutting off the music. “Hello Nan Zhong students, I am Lian ZiJin, vice president of the sophomore student council. You have heard about the pool incident last week and it is my responsibility to let you know what happened.”
Campus announcements were broadcast in every corner and the students at school stopped in their tracks.
“Beta Shi Yu, a sophomore in class 6, violated our school’s rules to protect and respect omegas and misbehaved with a sophomore omega girl, causing her to suffer great physical and mental trauma. This matter has not had a clear answer in the past week and I know many omega students are very upset, so today-“
Lian ZiJin’s smile was a bit grim as he dialed Father Xiao’s phone number.
Soon, the call was answered.
“Hello Mr. Xiao, this is Lian ZiJin, vice president of the student council. I would like to ask, how is Xiao Li’s condition?”
Father Xiao was silent for a long time. “My daughter is fine.”
“We are relieved that Xiao Li is safe and sound, but about Shi Yu who harmed your daughter-“
“Who said Shi Yu harmed my daughter?” Father Xiao asked in a cold voice. “The one who did that to my daughter was an alpha named Huang Lin from A2, who was sent to the police station on Saturday night. Shi Yu is a brave man.”
The words were clearly transmitted through the campus microphone to every student’s ears.
“What, Shi Yu isn’t the culprit?”
“Isn’t Huang Lin the one in A2 with a foul temper in?”
Lian ZiJin was confused for almost three seconds then jerked his eyes up to Shi Yu.
The man picked up his book bag with a cold face, gave him a mocking look and pushed open the door of the broadcasting room as if nothing had happened.
“You’re the vice president of the student union, right? Just in time. Our Xiao family is going to donate a sum of money for courageous deeds to reward Shi Yu and also encourage more students. By the way, since Shi Yu is an omega, the bonus will be doubled.”
“Wait, Shi Yu is an omega? Isn’t that wrong? How can one omega have bad thoughts about another omega?”
“Fuck. Fuck. Fuck. This broadcast today was to clear Shi Yu? I thought it was a conviction!”
“No, it sounds like a conviction to me…. Lian ZiJin is not in a hurry, in order to press President Jiang, he intended to press Shi Yu to confess, right?”
“It sounds like Shi Yu is so miserable…”
The campus radio kept rustling. Shi Yu expressionlessly walked past the gazes and returned to class six. Just as he walked to his seat, the radio was turned back on –
“Shi Yu,” the male voice was warm and magnetic, making people’s ears crisp. “Please pack up your books. The student council representative will come to help you move to your new classroom. Then come to my office.”
Shi Yu frowned and looked up at the announcement on the classroom door. Why was Jiang ChengLi in the broadcasting room and so… pompous in broadcasting announcements? He looked back and realized that the girls in the classroom were mesmerized.
“Ahhhhh! It’s President Jiang!”
“So cool! So dreamy! He obviously didn’t use any techniques to talk, how come he is so sexy?!”
“Help, I also want to be named by President Jiang to go to his office…”
Shi Yu only knew that Nan Zhong’s ABO gender division was very clear. Each grade had two Alpha classes and one omega class; the curriculum and teaching objectives were also different. There would be corresponding preferential treatment, but he did not know that he would be immediately transferred to the omega class just after differentiation.
Shi Yu just finished packing his books when he heard the whispers of the girls.
Jiang ChengLi walked slowly to the door of class 6. His long legs and narrow waist made the most usual school uniform look different. He was the center of attention everywhere he stood.
He walked towards Jiang ChengLi in front of everyone’s admiring eyes.
President Jiang politely reached out and helped him carry most of the books.
Shi Yu hesitated for a moment, kept his distance and followed him quietly.
Jiang ChengLi’s facial expressions were very light and he seemed to be helping this omega out of the goodness of his heart.
But he did notice that all the girls in the room looked as if they were infatuated and head over heels in love.
After all, handsome people had their favorable impressions multiplied.
An omega in Nan Zhong was recognized as a rare student. Even the school building was a unique building. Shi Yu vaguely remembered that there were only thirty omega students in the second year of high school, and when he first went up to the third floor, he found them standing in rows at the entrance.
There was a banner. “Welcome, new student.”
The shame was the same as walking around the sports field three times with a ribbon on your back.
“Welcome, new student!” More than twenty students clapped their hands with a gong and drum and firecrackers.
One girl stepped forward to greet him. Jiang ChengLi smelled the peach-scented barrier on him and backed away slightly with a frown.
“We understand everything. Welcome, Shi Yu, to our omega class family.” The girls helped him divide up what little was left in his hands and enthusiastically led the man to the classroom.
Jiang ChengLi stood politely at the far end of the room, not surprised by their enthusiasm.
Since omegas were relatively weak students, they would instinctively have a group mentality. Not to mention the previous accident in the forum caused the group of omegas to rush forward. Now they knew it was a misunderstanding, they would think of compensation.
Jiang ChengLi helped Shi Yu put his books on his desktop and knocked on his desk before the omega class students overwhelmed him. “Come to my office later.”
Shi Yu mumbled back.
President Jiang turned to leave, and the illusion of calm in the omega class suddenly cracked open.
The new orientation team turned into gossiping paparazzi. The boy sitting in front of Shi Yu’s seat was fierce in his attacks. “The new student is so handsome! I like teardrop moles the most, geez! What is your name, classmate? Where does your family live? Do you have a boyfriend? I’m not sure if you want to be with an omega. My pheromone is creamy. I don’t know if you’ll like it…”
Someone behind him covered him. “Double omega love will cost a fine. Don’t teach the new student something bad.”
Someone next to him helped lift his feet to move him away. “Lian Jing, you are in a hurry to die! Did you not see the president personally escort him over?” Shi Yu’s the president’s person and he still dared to think this. Was there something wrong with his glandular nerve?
The boy who was forcibly carried away screamed, “Even if… you cover my mouth, ah, I’ll also shout!”
“Where’s the chicken coop? Lock him up!”
After taking care of the most troublesome person, a girl walked up to Shi Yu with a cupcake in her hand. “Come and try it. Yesterday I heard that a new student was coming, and our class specially made it. You are welcome here.”
Shi Yu frowned. “Why are you so enthusiastic about me?”
The girl said seriously, “First of all, you are Xiao Li’s savior. Second, you are the first special person in our omega class to establish contact with A1 class. The happiness of our sisters depends on you.”
Shi Yu, “…” Why is it that the words spoken are all human, but when put together he can’t understand them?
“Everyone go back to your seats.” Class teacher Wan Zhen quickly walked to the podium. “Sit down. I have something to say,”
“Did you hear the announcement this morning? The A2 student has been expelled from school and will be sentenced to prison because he is an adult.” Someone in the class whispered.
“Shi Yu has suffered a lot before, so in the future we need to use enthusiasm and love to make this new student come out of his bad past.”
Shi Yu, “…”
It’s not necessary.
“Jiang… President, I really didn’t know it was Huang Lin who did this!” In the student council office, Lian ZiJin almost begged. Because he had barged into the broadcasting room without permission, the school had suspended Lian ZiJin. “It was the Xiao family who told me not to let Shi Yu off the hook so easily! I just… Help me, Jiang ChengLi, help me talk to the director…”
“Mr. Xiao said you misled him and could sense that you had a special interest in …Shi Yu, and harbored special malice.” Jiang ChengLi said gently. “No one can help you.”
Lian ZiJin was furious, but he didn’t dare to snap at Jiang ChengLi, so he held back his tears and walked out the door.
Just after Lian ZiJin left, Shi Yu walked up to the office with the completed file form.
After knocking on the door and getting an answer, Shi Yu walked over to Jiang ChengLi.
Jiang ChengLi held his chin. He felt like a branch of a peach tree had been lifted in front of him as the aroma of fresh ripe peaches greeted him. He frowned slightly, remembering that he also smelled it that morning near the omega class.
