Xie Jingxian wanted to say ‘l’ll do it myself’, but after Jiang Juan appeared, he swallowed back the words.
Jiang Juan stood in front of Xie Jingxian with the nameplate and the pin, and carefully pinned the nameplate on the clothes in front of his chest.
Xie Jingxian was a little taller than Jiang Juan. At this moment, when he lowered his eyes, he could see Jiang Juan’s long black eyelashes drooping down, like small brushes.
He clearly had the same appearance as before, and even his voice had not changed, but Xie Jingxian found out that he could no longer see the shadow of the past Jiang Juan on the one in front of him.
He was almost like a different person.
Can a person really change so much in such a short amount of time?
Xie Jingxian’s probing gaze fell on Jiang Juan, but he was still thinking… was he acting?
In the past, since Jiang Juan was unable to take advantage of him, so he came up with such a way, first gaining his trust, and then pushing him into hell.
Xie Jingxian had experienced such a thing before .That was when he was very young, when his mother was still alive.
A young unmarried woman with a child was inevitably surrounded by all kinds of malicious speculation and gossips. Not only were the adults full of malice, but even some children.
Children can be said to be the purest creatures in the world, but if they decide to become evil, they will be even more vicious than adults.
Because of the various rumors, Xie Jingxian had a very lonely childhood. He had no friends and could only play with himself. At that time, a child in the community where they rented a house jumped out to make friends with him.
Xie Jingxian was naturally very happy.
He just didn’t expect that the kid was only friendly to him on the surface, but he actually looked down on him in the bottom of his heart, thinking that he was a child without a father, a bastard, and that his mother did that kind of thing.
The child tricked Xie Jingxian into going to a place where no one was there, and got other children in the community to bully him together. Those children who bullied him and the adults who let them do it, would have never thought that, that day was Xie Jingxian’s birthday.
Xie Jingxian’s mother, that beautiful and gentle woman, had made cake and biscuits by herself and also gave Xie Jingxian invitation letters to give to his friends. The mother and son sincerely wanted to invite those children to their home.
Xie Jingxian’s memory of what happened that day was a bit blurred. He only remembered that it was raining that day. When he came out of the narrow alley, he was injured and only felt cold all over his body.
Those children didn’t get any benefit, and went home to complain.
It was Xie Jingxian’s most anticipated birthday, but it ended up being a joke. Later in the day, those angry parents flooded their home, blocking the door, while shouting for an explanation.
That was the first time Xie Jingxian’s mother got angry. She took a knife from the kitchen and drove out all the people who were clamoring outside the door.
Those people came angrily and walked away while swearing, perfectly interpreting the whole situation in a few words– bullying the weak and fearing the strong.
For the first time in his life, Xie Jingxian deeply realized the meaning of this idiom.
After that day, Xie Jingxian moved out of there with his mother, Xie Jingxian’s temper became colder, and he was even more afraid of the sudden closeness of others.
He began to close himself off, not making friends, and no longer expecting anything from anyone.
Xie Jingxian’s eyes fell on Jiang Juan’s face, he thought that, Jiang Juan’s methods were not very clever, even a small kid had done this kind of thing before.
He should have disdained this behavior, but looking at the bright smile on Jiang Juan’s face, he didn’t want to question him right away.
Jiang Juan, when are you going to tear off your mask?
Xie Jingxian thought silently, how long can you hold on?
When he realized what he was thinking, Xie Jingxian was a little surprised. He still had a lot of things to do, why would he waste his time on accompanying others to act a play. But he didn’t want to end such a game quickly, and even hoped that it could last longer.
As for the reason, Xie Jingxian pondered for a long time and came to the conclusion that maybe it was just because he had been alone for too long. Knowing that it was all fake, he also wanted to take part in it and experience it.
Jiang Juan didn’t know what Xie Jingxian was thinking. He said goodbye to everyone, and then raised his eyes to look at Xie Jingxian. He smiled and said, “Come on.”
Xie Jingxian said, “Okay.”
Xie Jingxian was the last one. Photographer Bai Guang was not biased. When the other students started their matches, he also took their pictures .
Unsurprisingly, in the 400-meter relay race, Class 2 won the championship. Dong Gao exclaimed excitedly, “Hahaha, we won again, our class is awesome!”
His words were drowned in the cheers of the crowd. If people from other classes listened to it, their hands would probably itch to beat this guy up.
After the relay race, it was the long run.
Jiang Juan was done warming up and stood on the track. As soon as the gun rang, he rushed out like an arrow released from the string.
If there were a bunch of people waiting to watch Xie Jingxian’s game, then the number of people watching Jiang Juan’s match were no less than Xie Jingxian’s, on the contrary it was even more lively.
Today, Xie Jingxian stayed on the ground after his competition and did not leave. The students in the audience seats could see him as soon as they lowered their heads, and Jiang Juan, who was the school bully. Since the beginning of this new semester, he suddenly approached Xie Jingxian, not for initiating any trouble but he was also quite nice to him.
This was also the first time for Jiang Juan to participate in the school activities. The students were very curious about him, and they all wanted to know whether Jiang Juan will be able to win or not.
After all, it was Jiang Juan’s first time to participate in a event. His two best friends, Xu Rang and Ye Pei, got a few cymbals A musical instrument consisting of a slightly concave round brass plate which is either struck against another one or struck with a stick to make a ringing or clashing sound. from somewhere, and the cymbals were even tied with a red silk cloth, which looked very festive.
The two stood in a conspicuous place. The moment the starting gun sounded, the cymbals violently banged against each other, and the sound of cheering one after another resounded throughout the ground.
It was also their luck, that Jiang Juan was currently busy in the match and didn’t have time, or else he would have probably kicked these two shameful things directly into the air.
Unsurprisingly, Jiang Juan took the first place. When he crossed the line, Xu Rang and Ye Pei, who had been waiting there since before, reached out to catch him.
Xu Rang laughed and said, “Brother Juan won.”
Ye Pei also laughed, “Usually you are so weak, I really can’t see how you can win the first place on your first run. Right now your physical strength is good, in the future you will not be regarded as a delicate porcelain doll.”
Jiang Juan said, “As a student of the new era, we must develop in an all-round way, in morals, intelligence, physique, beauty and career.”
Hearing this Ye Pei laughed even louder.
Ye Pei is the class leader, and it is not good for him to leave his classmates and come over here to cheer for Jiang Juan. If he kept disappearing, the students of his class would have even more objections. He said a few more words to Jiang Juan and Xu Rang, and then went back to his class.
Jiang Jun rushed to Xu Rang and said, “Don’t just stand here either, go and play by yourself. I’ll go there and rest.”
Xu Rang was like a fish in the water in this kind of environment, and he ran away after giving a sigh. Well, before he left, he didn’t forget to hand Jiang Juan a bottle of water.
Jiang Juan walked slowly along the runway, relaxing his sore muscles. He noticed that Xie Jingxian was resting in the shadow ahead, so he walked over and sat down next to Xie Jingxian.
Jiang Juan bumped Xie Jingxian with his leg. When he looked over, he raised his brows and looked like he was begging for a praise, “First place. How was it? Aren’t I good?”
Jiang Juan smiled happily, his eyes shining brightly like a star. Xie Jingxian noticed that Jiang Juan had a tiger tooth, which made him look a bit childish.
A drop of sweat slipped down from Jiang Juan’s smooth forehead, flowed over his slender eyebrows, and was about to drip into Jiang Juan’s eyes, when Xie Jingxian raised his hand and wiped it away for him.
Both of them were taken aback by this move.
Xie Jingxian was the first to react, and he pulled his hand back without much change in his expression, “You have sweated so much, go wash your face.”
Jiang Juan blinked, the sweat again rolled down from his forehead and flowed into his other eye. Chii… it was really painful.
He wiped it away casually. Xie Jingxian had already brought water over, he washed his face with the water and felt much more comfortable.
“Thank you.” Jiang Juan said sincerely.
The matches were over in the blink of an eye. The sophomore Class 2 won a lot of games. Although they didn’t win all the trophies as Dong Gao had originally thought, they also won most of the trophies.
Dong Gao was so happy that he could not close his mouth, and took Wang Tuo to the canteen to buy a bunch of snacks to reward his classmates.
Suddenly someone patted his shoulder, and when he turned his head, he saw that it was Xu Rang who was approaching him.
Bai Guang sat in his seat, admiring the results of his hard work.
When he saw Xu Rang coming towarfs him, Bai Guang nervously said, “Xu Xu, you…”
Xu Rang said, “Is that a nickname you gave to me, huh, Xu Xu? This is too ugly.”
Bai Guang hurriedly shook his head, Xu Rang also didn’t insist on it, his eyes staring at the camera in Bai Guang’s hand, “Did you take a picture of me? Let me take a look.”
Bai Guang nodded, and started looking through the photos to find Xu Rang’s.
Xu Rang stopped him immediately, “Hey, hey, slow down. I also want to look at other’s pictures.” So, Bai Guang had to slow down and accompany him to take a look at the pictures taken by the camera one by one.
After a while, Xu Rang’s laughter resounded throughout the class.
“Look at him, this expression, hahahahaha.”
“Hey, he was playing around even after he was done with his game, right?”
“Hey, this one looks so funny.”
“Hahaha, look at Wang Tuo and Dong Gao, this, their posture is so uncoordinated. Hahahaha, no, my stomach is starting to hurt.”
Bai Guang also laughed very happily next to him. The other were attracted by their movements and gathered around them.
It is not easy for players to move fast at sports events and even keep their expressions intact. Bai Guang had worked hard to capture everyone good moments , so these people looked good in most of the photos, but there will inevitably be some embarrassing ones.
He was reluctant to delete them, in his opinion they were all memories.
A sports meet brought the students in the class closer to each other, and some people even dared to hang out with Xu Rang, chatting and laughing together.
Xu Rang’s temperament was carefree, so he didn’t realize that there was anything different. Instead, he was cheerful, thinking that it did not seem so bad.
Xu Rang and the other students soon dispersed. Bai Guang, was still looking through his work, when he suddenly noticed something and immediately moved his fingers.
Bai Guang opened the previous photo and saw a girl in a white dress standing in the upper left corner of the photo. That girl was Su Rou. Although Xie Jingxian rejected her that day, she still came to watch Xie Jingxian’s competition.
It was not Su Rou who made Bai Guang feel uneasy, but the tall boy standing not far away from Su Rou. Bai Guang had seen that boy when he was training, and he seemed to have deep hostility towards Xie Jingxian.
Bai Guang flipped through several photos in succession, all of which showed the boy.
When the boy looked at Su Rou, his eyes were filled with obsession, but when his eyes turned to Xie Jingxian, they were filled with hostility, as if he would rush up to fight with Xie Jingxian at any time.
Bai Guang was very worried, and after thinking about it again and again, he pulled Xie Jingxian over to tell him about the matter in a low voice.
Xie Jingxian’s expression was still indifferent, and he said thank you to Bai Guang. There was no worry or panic on his face, as indifferent as usual.
Bai Guang could only comfort himself, thinking that, that person is in the third year of high school, he should be busy focusing on his studies, and will not have time trouble Xie Jingxian.
