Laughter filled the room as everyone joked and laughed together.
In the front row, Hedy closed her eyes and, when she opened them again, she saw the information panel from the system.
“Trial mission (1) completed.”
“A new mission will be released tomorrow. Stay tuned.”
Mr. Evan appeared at the classroom door. “It’s our turn for makeup. Hurry to the dressing room and get ready for the performance!”
“Wow!” Sun exclaimed, leading the students as they rushed out.
The classroom was now empty, with only Hedy flipping through her books.
“Hedy, why don’t you go to the dressing room as well? See if you can help with anything,” Mr. Evan suggested with a smile.
He wanted Hedy to integrate into the group.
She was always so solitary.
Hedy nodded. There was nothing else for her to do anyway.
Watching Hedy’s retreating figure, Mr. Evan pursed his lips.
As he reflected on the transformation of these students in recent days, an idea slowly formed in his mind.

In the dressing room.
A professional makeup artist hired by the school was applying various cosmetics on the faces of Class 7 students.
Hedy leaned against the wall, arms crossed. There was no need for her to help in this area.
Occasionally, girls from other classes blushed as they approached the makeup artist, asking questions like, “Is my eye makeup smudged?” or “Can you touch up my makeup?” or even “Will I look prettier like this?”
Their cautious yet excited behavior had one reason: Childe King, the new trustee of Lowell High School, would be attending the party.
Childe King was the dream man desired by countless girls worldwide!
If they caught Childe King’s attention during this performance, they would instantly climb up the social ladder.
Any San Francisco corporation that stood before the King Family would have to bow down!
“If I were a girl, I’d want to marry Childe King too!” A boy from Class 7 exclaimed.
“Unlike you, I just want to marry Goddess Hedy!” the girls from Class 7 said, their voices filled with admiration.
Men couldn’t hold a candle to Goddess Hedy!
They were completely conquered by her.
On the stage, the host began to liven up the atmosphere.
