Chapter 75.1 Talent Protection
Yan Hao’s classmates knew about him participating in the sophomores’ practical assessment, but they didn’t pay much attention to it at first, thinking that Yan Hao was just helping a friend. However after the assessment was over and some rumors spread, Yan Hao suddenly became the focus of the class.
“Yan Hao, I heard you can make a level 6 energy block, and it’s even a master level at that?”
“That’s a master level, no second year student can make it. When did you learn how to do it?”
“I have a headache just figuring out the formula for a level 5 energy block, so how are you able to calculate the formula for a level 6 energy block?”
“That’s right, that’s right. We have to learn this for the end of semester exams. Do you have any good ideas?”
“And I heard you can make medicines, is it true?”
“Yes, how are you able to make medicines?!”
During recess, Yan Hao found himself surrounded three layers deep by his classmates, with everyone asking questions one after the other.
At first, Yan Hao was a little shy, but after he noticed that although his classmates were asking many questions, there was no other negative emotions such as disgust and disdain on their faces besides simple curiosity, he relaxed gradually.
“Actually, the formula for a level 6 energy block is not difficult.” Yan Hao whispered.
“Then teach us.” Someone said immediately.
“If….. if you guys are willing to learn.” Yan Hao said.
“Of course we’re willing to learn. Tell us quickly, I’ve noticed that you learn formulas especially very quickly.”
“Yes, He Shao is so lousy at maths yet he is able to make a level 5 master energy block. It must be because you taught him.”
“Hey, what do you mean by I’m lousy at maths?!” He Shao was angry.
“You’re the only one in our class with a maths score below 140. If you’re not lousy at maths who is?”
“…..” He Shao.
This was the first time Yan Hao was seeing He Shao unable to speak after being scolded and so couldn’t help but laugh.
“Oh yes, Yan Hao, you really know how to make medicine?” He Shao being lousy at maths didn’t hold the students attention for long, as everyone’s attention quickly returned to Yan Hao. Compared to making a level 6 energy block, the fact that a student from the Mech Building Department could make medicine was even more strange.
“En.” Yan Hao didn’t hide it, because he knew that this secret couldn’t be kept.
“You also studied how to make medicine?”
“I studied pharmacy in middle school.” If it had been a few days ago, Yan Hao would have never admitted so openly that he had switched from studying pharmacy to study mech building halfway, because it was too high-profile. However after meeting Yan Fei yesterday, he realized how humble and lowly he had once been and also realized that as long as he no longer humbly begged for those ridiculous things, even the main character Yan Fei couldn’t do anything to him.
“You majored in both Pharmacy and Mech Building in middle school? Your school allows you to study both majors at the same time?” Someone asked in surprise.
“No, I majored in Pharmacy in middle school and switched to Mech Building in university.” Yan Hao answered.
“F*ck!” Except for He Shao, the entire class, everyone, exploded with the same expletive.
They had been classmates for over a semester now and Yan Hao’s grades in class had been consistently steady, with him coming in second in every exam. Although this ranking was high, since they were all gifted students from different planets, their scores only differed by a small margin each time, so the ranking wasn’t something everyone paid much attention to. However, when the news that Yan Hao had studied Pharmacy instead of Mech Building in middle school was revealed, the result was very different.
That meant that they, these gifted students from different planets who had studied basic knowledge of Mech Building for six years more than Yan Hao still couldn’t beat him in the exams?! The student who came in first place everytime suddenly felt that his first place wasn’t so sweet anymore.
The only one who was calm was He Shao, and not only was he calm, he was even gloating a little in his heart.
Heh heh, classmates, you’re all doubting your existence, right? I also went through this stage.
“Yan Hao, can we make a deal?” Li Chun, the student in class who came first had a worried expression on his face.
Yan Hao looked at Li Chun.
“I’m the only one with grades higher than you in class….”
Yan Hao’s heart tightened: Was Li Chun going to hate him?
Because he had come to understand some things, Yan Hao had become braver than before, but this didn’t mean he wanted to return to the environment of being hated and despised by his classmates.
“Can you wait until the second year to surpass me? Otherwise we who have studied the basics of Mech Building for six years will really have no face left.” Li Chun said with a painful expression on his face.
Yan Hao froze.
“Yes, you mustn’t progress too quickly.”
“F*ck me, what does that have to do with us? Haven’t we already been surpassed?”
“You don’t understand, this is a matter of collective dignity. As long as Li Chun hasn’t fallen, then it means we haven’t studied in vain.”
“Li Chun, you’re our last hope.”
“You definitely have to hold on.”
Yan Hao was frozen for a long time, then his expression changed from surprise to confusion, then from confusion to delight then a smile overflowed from his eyes, soon spreading across his cheeks.
“Okay.” Finally, Yan Hao agreed loudly.
“D*mn, Yan Hao, you’re really asking for a beating with this serious agreement.”
“Yes, it’s as if you can surpass us at any time.”
“Scram scram scram, you guys are so hard to please. If he doesn’t agree you guys will be afraid of losing face and if he does agree you guys aren’t satisfied.” He Shao turned to Yan Hao, “Yan Hao, don’t pay attention to them. In the next exams, don’t hold back at all.”
“He Shao, what do you mean by that? Could it be that Yan Hao has been holding back in the previous exams before?”
The classroom became noisy as everyone spoke and attacked each other, however there was a smile on everyone’s face and although their words were occasionally tinged with some profanity, there wasn’t a hint of anger to be found. For Yan Hao, this was a brand new experience. It turns out….. classmates could also be like this.

Thanks for the chapter! I’m so happy for the guy, some ordinary human interaction without a manipulator behind is quite nice.
I’m CRYING. I’m so happy he gets to experience such a normal thing without being tossed around bc of the book plot.
Wait until they learn that he’s able to produce a rank 5 mimetic mecha. They won’t know where to put their faces and whether to curse him or pray to him like a deity for luck.
