some greenery and the basketball court.
There were three outdoor basketball courts, each occupied by boys playing basketball, and under the hoop and side of the courts sad little ladies.
Some were watching the guys play while some were just having conversations.

Eighth High’s school uniform was composed of a sports jacket and sports pants.
The summer edition had half-sleeves.
Girls were also allowed to wear pants so when seen from afar, the entire school campus was filled with students who had white tops and black pants.

Lin Yujing didn’t have a school uniform and even though she wore a white top and black bottom, her pleated skirt showed off her slender long legs.
With a height of 1.7 meters, she was very eye-catching.

Especially because her appearance was very outstanding.

Several boys dribbled while looking in her direction, wolf-whistling.

Lin Yujing was too lazy to care.
Li Lin turned his head for a look and muttered ‘damn’ under his breath.
Turning his head back, he whispered, “New student, your desk mate.”

Lin Yujing paused and turned her head.

Shen Juan was sitting on one of the benches, his legs spread wide open.
His arms were atop of his knees as he held a mineral spring water bottle in one hand.

It probably hadn’t been long since he arrived, his gaze still looked unfocused, carrying the drowsiness of just having awoken.

Beside him was a guy sitting on a basketball.
He was staring at Lin Yujing before turning to tell Shen Juan something.

Shen Juan raised his head and cast a glance in her direction.

After staring at each other for 1.5 seconds, Lin Yujing whipped her head back and resumed walking ahead, “Let’s go.
Is the Art and Sports Building far?”

Li Lin couldn’t help but sigh and revere her for her display of calmness.
He eagerly caught up to her and asked, “New student, do you know who your desk mate is?”

Lin Yujing honestly replied, “Shen Juan.”

“Aii, that’s not what I meant, do you know who Shen Juan is?”

“No.” Lin Yujing could see his desire to speak and took the baton, “School heartthrob?”

Li Lin nodded, “Aiii—-that’s right.”

Then shook his head, “But also not right.”

The two had already walked out of the basketball court by this moment.
Li Lin turned her head for a look and said, “The guy who was playing ball on that side is a third year.”

“Oh.” Lin Yujing nodded.

Li Lin: “He was Shen Juan’s previous classmate.”

Lin Yujing paused and raised her eyes, “previous?”

“Yup.
Supposedly, he should’ve been a third year too,” Li Lin said in a low voice.
“During his second year, Shen Juan caused an incident, nearly beating his desk mate to death.
The guy was covered in blood and a lot of classmates were witnesses to this.
At that time, his gaze and aura were said to be really terrifying.”

“Ah,” Lin Yujing recalled the appearance of the youth in a fight and asked, “Why?”

“I don’t know why.
Nobody also really knows.
Those who are friends with him don’t dare to ask him.
In any case, he didn’t attend school after that.
I always thought it was because he was expelled or he transferred to another school.
I didn’t think that he only took a year’s leave from school and now he’s in the same class as I am, and he’s even sitting right in front of me.
He even heard all of the bad things I said about him,” Li Lin’s face turned pale, “New student, do you think I can live past the Dragon Boat Festival?”

Lin Yujing earnestly corrected him, “Dragon Boat Festival is in May.
The closest holiday coming is Mid-Autumn.”

Li Lin: “…..Oh.”

On the basketball court, He Songnan stared at Lin Yujing’s figure and clicked his tongue.
“This year’s female freshmens sure are on another level.

Shen Juan ignored him and screwed open his bottle, drinking the water.
His neck stretched open, his Adam’s apple bobbing up and down.

“Did you see her gaze when she turned her head? She was like a queen, emitting an aura as if to say I was just an ant.” He Songnan said in exhilaration.
After thinking for a moment, he then added, “That’s not right.
Aren’t first years still in military training, is she a second year or a third year? If I’ve seen her before, there’s no way she wouldn’t have rung a bell.”

Shen Juan slowly screwed the cap back to the bottle and threw it diagonally opposite him.
The mineral spring water bottle drew a circle in the air and with a light whoosh, landed accurately inside the trash can.
“Second year.”

“Transfer student?”

“Yeah.”

“I was wondering why I hadn’t seen her before,” He Songnan clapped, “Your news is as quick as ever.
You’ve just come back and you already know which grade the pretty little sister is in.
Do you know which class?

“Class 10, my desk mate.”

He Songna paused in place, taking 5 minutes to digest this piece of news, “Your new desk mate?”

“Ah.” Shen Juan leaned back and looked up.

“Fuck, you must be happy about your demotion.” He Songnan watched Lin Yujing walk far away, his face filled with envy, “Your desk mate sure is something.
Those legs are stunning, Boss Shen.”

Shen Juan looked at him.

He Songnan stretched out his neck, continuing to look.
He held up his hands and gestured, “Look, that area between the skirt and her knees, do you know what it’s called— it’s called the absolute territory.”

Shen Juan calmly called him, “He Songnan.”

“Hm?” He Songnan responded without turning his head, his line of sight stuck at the absolute territory.

Shen Juan raised a foot and stomped on the basketball under his butt, kicking it forward.

The ball flew very far, causing He Songnan’s butt to land on the ground.
He let out an anguished “ow” and turned around to howl.
“Boss Juan! What the hell was that for!!!”

Shen Juan looked at him.
“That’s my desk mate.”

“I fucking know she’s your desk mate.” He Songnan rubbed his butt and got back to his feet, grimacing in pain.
“So what?”

“She’s not your desk mate.” Shen Juan said.

The author has something to say:

Boss Juan: Are you an idiot? Why are you looking at her? Is she your desk mate?

T/N: Lmao He Songnan is such a weeb.
‘Absolute Territory’ or 絶対領域 refers to the area of bare skin in the gap between overknee socks and a skirt.
There’s even a wikipedia page for this lol https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zettai_ry%C5%8Diki This below is a meme I found while googling for a picture as reference
