Ch. 42 Gifts
After the meal, Jiang Juan and the few students who didn’t how to cook took over the cleaning work.
After everything was cleaned up, several girls boiled hot water, and everyone took their towels and went to wash. After Jiang Juan finished washing, he wrapped himself in a coat and entered the tent. He saw Wang Tuo and Xiao Yang had each got into their sleeping bags, and were already fast asleep.
They had been in the car for half a day, and then they were both mentally and physically exhausted. No matter how young their bodies were, they couldn’t stand it.
Jiang Juan took the sleeping bag and lay beside Xie Jingxian, smiled at him and said, “I’m sleeping too, good night.”
Xie Jingxian said good night and raised his hand to turn off the lights in the tent.
The surroundings fell into silence, and after an unknown period of time, Jiang Juan rolled over, as his warm breath hit Xie Jingxian’s cheek, causing a slight itch.
Xie Jingxian could see Jiang Juan’s tightly closed eyes through the faint light that penetrated from outside. Xie Jingxian thought, that since he fell asleep so quickly, it seems that he was really tired today.
Xie Jingxian looked at Jiang Juan’s sleeping face with a gentle expression on his face. He was so lively and agile when he was awake, as if he had infinite vitality, but when he fell asleep, he seemed so well-behaved.
Quite a weird quality, but it makes people feel very cute.
After watching for a while, Xie Jingxian raised his hand and tucked in the sleeping bag for Jiang Juan before gently closing his eyes. Soon there was a steady and long breathing sound from the tent.
The next day, before dawn, a sharp whistle tore through the sky, startling everyone.
Xiao Yang sat up abruptly with his head looking like a bird’s nest, as he looked around blankly, “What’s wrong, what’s wrong? Earthquake or fire?”
Wang Tuo took a look at his phone, it was five o’clock in the morning. He said, “It’s the whistle of the assembly. Yesterday, they sent a notice in the group. Today, we have to get up early for morning practice. Get up.”
Xiao Yang was dumbfounded, “Huh?” Yesterday, he was busy learning cooking with Xie Jingxian. He kept his mobile phone aside and didn’t even look at it. After washing, he fell asleep as soon as his head touched the pillow.
Xiao Yang took a look at his phone, and saw the notification, and he couldn’t help sighing “So much suffering.”
Wang Tuo had already got up and put on his clothes, then lowered his head and said, “Don’t complain, get up quickly, don’t forget that the students from Mingyang High School are trying so hard to crush us. You want to get defeated by them?”
One have to say that Wang Tuo’s collective sense of honor was very strong. Xiao Yang was the same, when he heard Wang Tuo saying this, he got up without saying a word.
Jiang Juan packed up quickly, followed Xie Jingxian out of the tent, and the cold air hit his face as soon as he went out.
Jiang Juan wrapped his clothes tightly, glanced across the lake, and saw that the lights at Mingyang High School were also on, and the students had quickly packed up and started lining.
This morning exercise was led by the teachers and is to run around Xiaohua Mountain in the morning.
In recent years, this area has developed rapidly. Street lights are installed on the way up the mountain, and there are no vehicles coming and going. It is a very suitable place for exercising.
They ran for more than an hour, and when they came back, the teachers had already prepared a hearty breakfast. Not having to prepare their own breakfast, the students were overjoyed and satisfied with what they had gotten to eat.
Just like yesterday, after breakfast, the students cleaned up the mess they made and began to prepare for the class.
With yesterday’s experience, the students of Jincheng and Mingyang High School were very serious in class. Mingyang High School didn’t want to be ashamed anymore, but Jincheng High School wanted to maintain the glory of yesterday.
Jincheng High School and Mingyang High School have excellent reputations, and they have cultivated many outstanding students over the years. In the next two days, the competition between the two schools was also very cutthroat.
The days in the mountains were intense and fulfilling. And before they even knew it, most of the five-day and four-night winter camp trip had passed.
This afternoon, when the students came to the teaching point, the teacher smiled and told them that there would be no class in the afternoon, and that the teachers had prepared gifts for them.
The gifts were hidden on Xiaohua Mountain, and students had to find it by themselves.
In the past few days, the students did not dare to relax in the slightest, and they were very tired from desperately working their minds off. Now that they heard that they can take a half-day rest, and there were also gifts, they were again full of energy.
Jiang Juan’s eyes were also full of excitement.
This winter camp was really fun. The teachers had left some marks in the safe areas of Xiaohua Mountain.
The clues were on leaves, or stones as number written on it with a marker, and students can use this numbered object to exchange gifts with the teacher. As for what will be exchanged in the end, no one knows, but it was precisely because of this that the students looked forward to it even more.
Nearly 200 students were scattered in every corner of Xiaohua Mountain.
Jiang Juan had also put on a scarf and hat, and followed Xie Jingxian to find the surprise hidden in the forest.
After nearly everything was searched, Jiang Juan and Xie Jingxian walked deeper into the forest.
The deeper they went, the fewer people there were. Jiang Juan had good eyesight, and from a distance he could see a small stone among the dead leaves, with the number 13 written on it with a red marker.
“Such good luck.” Jiang Juan laughed, walked over, picked up the stone, and then handed it to Xie Jingxian.
Seeing that Xie Jingxian was looking at the stone in his hand, Jiang Juan couldn’t help but ask him, “Hey, what kind of reward do you think they will prepare?”
Xie Jingxian shook his head slightly.
As someone who was familiar with the entire original book, Jiang Juan naturally knew what gifts the teachers had prepared, but he didn’t say anything. He just wanted to tease Xie Jingxian, “Look, we are so happy now, but what if the reward is a test paper, won’t out hard-work go to waste?”
Xie Jingxian took out a tissue, wrapped the stone with it and put it in his pocket, and said softly, “What’s bad about it.”
Jiang Juan: “…”
After thinking about it, Jiang Juan thought that Xie Jingxian was right. After all, the students gathered here are all good students, and not study scums like the original owner. These students will be very happy to get such study materials and test papers, especially the materials prepared by these famous teachers.
Jiang Juan thought that it must be the result of being with Xu Rang for a long time, that he also started thinking that students would have a headache when they see those test papers and materials.
Jiang Juan touched his nose and said to Xie Jingxian, “Let’s move on.”
Xie Jingxian nodded and continued to walk forward with Jiang Juan half a step behind him. The sun was just right above their heads at the moment, as it shone down through the branches of the trees, casting specks of light on the ground.
In winter, the leaves in the forest are all withering and falling down, which looks very desolate, but it has a completely different feel because of the bright sunshine.
Xie Jingxian stood in the shadow of a tree, under the sun, making his back figure look very lonely.
Looking at him Jiang Juan couldn’t help but take out his phone and said to Xie Jingxian who was walking in front, “Hey.”
Xie Jingxian turned his head, and Jiang Juan immediately pressed the shooting button and permanently captured this moment.
Jiang Juan and Xie Jingxian wandered around for a while, but could not find any numbered leaves or stones, but instead found a good place to bask in the sun.
Tired of walking, the two sat side by side on the layers of dead leaves, with the sun rays gently falling on them, making the scene look very warm.
Thinking of the forum broadcast that Xu Rang and Ye Pei had been talking about, Jiang Juan couldn’t help but go to the forum again. As soon as he entered, he saw the pinned post about this winter camp.
In just a few days, the building had reached a few thousand floors.
Every time there is a question-answer session, there will be a special person doing a live recording as well as making a video, and then the school will upload it to the forum. The students who stayed in the school pay attention to it every day, and the discussion rate was very high.
There were also students who went to the forum of the Mingyang high school to spy on them, and then came back to report the situation. The atmosphere of the whole building was very lively and friendly, and it was the kind where the person who saw it couldn’t help but bend his lips happily.
Jiang Juan exited the special building for the winter camp, flipped through the posts again, and saw a special building for Xie Jingxian. Of course, this building had nothing to do with him, it was dedicated to discussing Xie Jingxian’s performance in answering questions at the winter camp.
Xie Jingxian’s answering ability was very strong, especially in the session on the first day that they went, he had single-handedly beaten his opponent to the ground and directly crushed him.
There were also students in the building who were sighing, asking that everyone eats the same rice and breathes the same air, then why was there such a big difference.
Jiang Juan didn’t know what was going on with him, as he liked to watch people praise Xie Jingxian. Originally, he sighed that Xie Jingxian’s brain was really good, not at all like a mortal, but after that, he started paying attention to his photos.
Some of the pictures in the building I had mentioned this before. Here the word ‘Building’ means a post/thread and ‘Floor’ means ‘Comments’ were taken from other buildings, and some were taken from the video of the winter camp. Some people even retouched the pictures and then posted them. He had to say that these photos were really very eye-catching.
Jiang Juan picked a few pictures, screen-shot them and then sent it over to Xie Jingxian.
The phone in Xie Jingxian’s pocket vibrated, and he turned his head to glanced at Jiang Juan, then took out the phone, and saw that Jiang Juan had sent many photos, all of which were his. One of them was taken when Jiang Juan had just called him.
Seeing Xie Jingxian’s eyes falling on the last photo, Jiang Juan leaned over and smiled, “How is it, my skills are good, right?”
Xie Jingxian said, “Not bad.”
Jiang Juan rolled his eyes, and asked again, “Do you mind if I show my photography skills to the alumni?”
Xie Jingxian has a good eyesight, and he could see the content on Jiang Juan’s phone as soon as he turned his head. Obviously, he was browsing the forum.
Jiang Juan posted the photo he just took to the post he was currently browsing. He was about to refresh it to see how the brothers and sisters in the post were praising Xie Jingxian in a fancy way, when he heard footsteps behind him.
Jiang Juan originally thought that a student had come here, but when he turned his head, he saw Han Xingye and two boys walking towards where he and Xie Jingxian were.
Xie Jingxian also saw Han Xingye, and couldn’t help frowning slightly, as his originally gentle eyes instantly became cold.
T/N: This was the last chapter of the mass release for TVVSH that was promised on reaching the Goal on Ko-fi.
Similarly, I am also going to post 5 chapters of DFSRA for mass release, but it will take some more time, as it’s chapters are a little lengthier and I don’t want to divide it into parts.
