Chapter 18: The Competition
Translator: Dragon Boat Translation Editor: Dragon Boat Translation
She was suffering from chronic kidney failure and had to undergo dialysis twice a week.
Although they had medical insurance and subsidies, it was still a heavy burden for the mother and son. Especially since she had to take medicine for treatment because of her illness, she could not find a stable job and could only work part-time every day, so her income was not high.
A few years ago, when his mother found out that her illness was getting more and more serious, she had thought of committing suicide. It was Zhai Jing who made her stay in this world and allowed her to grit her teeth and persist until now.
It was just that her condition had deteriorated very quickly recently, and she didn’t know how long she could last …
Zhai Jing, who came out of the bathroom, stood at the door for a long time without moving. He and his mother had a tacit understanding not to show their wounds to each other. They would only encourage and encourage each other.
In the blink of an eye, it was Monday. Zhai Jing had just stepped into the classroom with a bruised face when he was stopped by his deskmate, Zhang Mian. “God of studies, the teacher wants you to go to the office. ”
As soon as he turned around, Zhang Mian’s voice rang out. “Oh my God, what happened to your face? Did you fight with someone? ”
“I accidentally fell.” Zhai Jing put down his bag and went to the office. Zhang Mian shouted from behind, “With that face, be careful or else the teacher might check on you.”
Zhai Jing didn’t take it seriously, but it was obvious that Zhang Mian was right. The teacher blurted out at first sight, “Did you get into a fight with someone?”
Zhai Jing stopped in his tracks. “I accidentally fell.”
The teacher had a ‘You’re kidding me’ expression on his face. “Do a fall now and let me see what kind of position you’re in to get that wound.”
Zhai Jing could only use the same excuse he used to deal with his mother to stall him. After knowing about his situation the teacher sighed. He did not say anything but only reminded him, “You still have to take your exams. The principal has high hopes for you. Don’t cause any trouble and affect your future.”
Zhai Jing knew that he was saying this for his own good, so he didn’t say anything. He only asked, “Teacher, what did you call me here for?”
The teacher smacked his head. He had almost forgotten about the important matter. He took out a registration form from the drawer and handed it to him. “This is the latest Mathematics Competition. You can go and give it a try.”
At the thought that he had to tutor Le Wan recently, he probably would not have the time to prepare for this competition. Hence, he wanted to reject the offer.
However, the teacher asked him to think about it more. “I know you don’t have the time now, but this is a competition sponsored by a private enterprise. There is prize money. I think it’s a good thing for you, so I suggest you give it a try. ”
Zhai Jing lowered his head to look at the competition’s introduction and realized that the first prize was 30000 Yuan. He immediately said, “Thank you, teacher. I will participate.” Then, he picked up a pen from the table and filled in the registration form.
The teacher shook his head and nodded at him, but didn’t say anything.
In the office upstairs, Fu Sui had also received a registration form from his class teacher.
For Fu Sui, a scholarship of tens of thousands of Yuan was nothing, but the competition was organized by the famous Dahong Corporation, so he didn’t mind showing up. If he really won the prize, his family would be proud.
At this time, neither of them knew that because of this small competition, their lives would be on a completely different path from their previous lives.
After a busy day, Le Wan had gradually gotten used to the intensity of her studies. She stretched lazily and moved her limbs, which were a little stiff from sitting for a long time. She then went to the meeting place where Zhai Jing was already waiting for her.
Le Wan put down her heavy bag and took out a stack of year one textbooks. She opened the marked places and said, “I’ve already finished my revision. Follow my progress and help me sort out the knowledge points later.”
Zhai Jing flipped from the front page and saw the summary of knowledge points she had done. He praised, “Not bad.” It was clear and concise, making it easy to see at a glance.
“Didn’t you see how I did it?” In terms of learning, Le
Wan could still pat her chest and guarantee it.
“Then why were your results so bad before?” Zhai Jing looked at her smug face and didn’t say it out loud.
He first took the book and studied it carefully for a while, understanding her study habits, then picked up the pen and started to draw the outline for the lessons.
The two of them sat across from each other at a table. The table was not very wide, and when they buried their heads in the questions, the distance between them was less than 20 centimeters.
Looking at Zhai Jing’s slightly trembling eyelashes, she was distracted for a moment and then moved her gaze down to his nose and mouth.
