Yun Yi and Xu Haozhe spoke excellent English and they were here for the competition representing Di Yi Senior High School.
Yun Yi’s grades in English were slightly better than Xu Haozhe. Nonetheless, both of them performed well in the first round of the competition. The result was only finalized after the second round of the contest ended.
Needless to say, Yun Yi came in first for the senior high school division.
He had achieved a similar placing as Yun Jian but the only difference was that Yun Jian was the first place in the junior high division while he was the champion for the senior high division.
Xu Haozhe finished the competition rather impressively too. Compared to Yun Yi, he had gotten the tenth out of the whole senior high category but it was a great achievement nonetheless.
When the competition for both age categories ended, the students went back.
Lawson had wanted to go around and visit Yun Jian, but he was invited here as a judge by the school, so he had to return to his home country once the competition ended.
Moreover, it was only Wednesday today, not yet a weekend, and Lawson did not have it in him to ask Yun Jian to skip school and have fun with him. Therefore, he could only give up challenging Yun Jian once more.
Before he left, however, Lawson insisted and nagged Yun Jian about meeting again next time. When he really had to leave, he told Yun Jian fervently in English, “Yun Jian, make sure you let me win when we meet next time!”
Next time... who knew if there would be a next time after meeting today... Yun Jian smiled and replied with a nod anyway, “Mn.”
She added after that. “You’ll still lose to me when we meet again.”
Yun Jian sounded almost offensive but it felt like a zip of motivation to Lawson as he bid goodbye to her with a guffaw.
As for Yun Jian’s newfound friend, Ning Lanlan, she exchanged contact numbers with Yun Jian and they agreed to go out together next time. Having a good impression of the girl, Yun Jian promised with a nod, happy to be friends with her.
Shan Zihao who liked Yun Jian could only watch her leave on the bus back to Longmen Yi Junior High School, but he refused to give up just like that! It had been rare for him to set eyes on a girl, so it was impossible that he would give up before he tried to court her.
Moreover, Xiao Zhiming was his bro and the guy was close to Ning Lanlan. Since Ning Lanlan was also close to Yun Jian now, he did not have to worry about losing sight of Yun Jian as long as he kept an eye on Ning Lanlan!
A week passed by swiftly and Friday came in the blink of an eye.
Yun Jian left the school carrying her backpack. In the past, Chen Xinyi and Zhang Shaofeng would be her company and their walk from the classroom to the school gate would be filled with laughter and bickering. With both of these jokers missing, Yun Jian felt out of place and empty.
Once she recalled Chen Xinyi’s father inviting her to have a meal at their house, meaning that she would see Chen Xinyi soon, Yun Jian felt better.
Then, she walked home briskly. She was not having dinner at home today.
Returning to Dong Ruan’s villa, Yun Jian tossed her schoolbag back in her room and went downstairs. She was going to have dinner at Ge Junjian’s place today.
Since Ge Junjian and Qin Yirou’s wedding was approaching and Qin Yirou would have to move into Ge Junjian’s place after they got married, the woman had begun moving now.
They had discussed tonight as well. Qin Yirou had taken Yun Zhu, Duan Li, and Duan Ya to Ge Junjian’s house and was planning to prepare a grand meal.
It was just that when Yun Jian dropped her bag and ran out feeling a buzz of excitement, Si Yi’s voice came from behind her. “Xiao Jian, where are you going?”
