The Killer Queen with Multiple Disguises by Novia Ford novel Chapter 16

Chapter 16 She Sets the Stage on Fire

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

After an impassioned speech, the students took turns performing

according to the order determined by the draw

Regardless of the quality of their performances, everyone received a certain amount of applause

When the host announced the names Gloriaand Oliver,the applause reached its peak in the audience

The students erupted in excited cheers

Gloria, Goddess Gloria!” 

Oliver, Oliver!” 

These two people were the most popular students at Lowell High School

Even though Oliver had his engagement with Hedy called off, and Gloria had been criticized for the library incident, their status at Lowell High School remained unshakable

On stage, Gloria wore a pue evening gown as she gracefully played the piano, her neck arched elegantly like a swan

Oliver, dressed in a tailcoat, accompanied her with his violin, his focused expression making him look even more handsome

They created a harmonious scene with their instruments

As the music concluded, the applause grew even more fervent

Some bold boys shouted their love for Gloria, while others rested their chins in their hands, bored and pursing their lips

What’s wrong? Wasn’t Gloria’s performance good?” 

It’s wonderful. I’ve just heard it too many times.”

It had been three years since Gloria played the piano at every celebration

Although the pieces she played were different each time, the piano was always there, and he wasn’t exactly a loyal fan of piano music. He had indeed grown a bit tired of it

He wanted to see something new and exciting


The students from Class 7 were getting ready, but just as they were about to perform on stage, the music teacher in charge of playing the drums came over, clutching his stomach

Ouch, my stomach hurts. I can’t accompany you on the drums. You’ll have to find someone else.” 

Then he quickly ran away

The faces of the students changed

In the piece we chose, the drums are the main accompanying instrument. Without the drums, the entire style of the piece will change, right?” 

Why does it have to be this critical moment? Where can we find someone who can play the drums?” 

I’ll do it,Hedy walked over and extended her hand. Give me the metronome.” 

The drums, also known as the jazz drums, were rhythmic instruments

Since the beats of the majority of songs were regular, drummers often

didn’t need to look at sheet music. Instead, they relied on a metronome preset in their headphones

With fixedfrequency pulses, they could accurately control the rhythm of the entire piece

You can play the drums?Sun widened his eyes and handed Hedy the headphones

A little bit,Hedy replied, putting on the headphones

Playing the drums used to be her only outlet for releasing her emotions

And she unexpectedly earned the title of the greatest drummer of the centuryaccording to media rankings

On stage, the female host beamed with a smile and announced, Next up, we have the students from Class 7 of the senior year. They will be performing a song called Natural.Let’s give it up for them!” 

Applause erupted, filling the air with enthusiasm

Class 7 students took the stage, and the lights dimmed, leaving only a spotlight on Sun. 

He began singing softly

Will you hold the line 

When every one of them is giving up or giving in tell me 

In this house of mine 

Nothing ever comes without a consequence or cost tell me” 

As the introductory singing came to an end, a second spotlight

illuminated the pianist, and the deep and classical sound of the piano filled the air. The rhythm gradually intensified, and Sun’s voice grew louder

That’s the price you pay 

Leave behind your heartache and cast away 

Rather be the hunter than the prey 

And you’re standing on the edge face up 

Cause you’re a”
