Chapter 1340: Olympics

“You sound as if you’ve already had children.” Tang Li smiled and dodged before reaching to squeeze Bai Qingqing’s b.r.e.a.s.t.s.

She then realized the stark difference between them and felt even more insecure.

With an enriching learning experience, Bai Qingqing quickly got used to campus life.

In the day, she would study hard, and at night, she had Curtis by her side as she fell asleep. At lunch and dinner time, she had delicious food that she couldn’t turn down no matter how hard she tried. Time slipped by quickly without a trace, and in the blink of an eye, it was already Friday—the day students looked forward to most.

During this period, Muir had become a global sensation. For anyone who had watched the Olympics, he was definitely among the top three most popular athletes.

How popular had he become? Take Bai Qingqing’s high school, for example. Every grade, except for the seniors, had one cla.s.s canceled. During this free period, they would turn on the television and watch the live broadcast of the compet.i.tion. For that didn’t have a television in their cla.s.sroom, projectors were set up for them.

When images of the Olympics appeared on television screens, the students were amazed.

“What’s going on? Why is the school so nice to let us watch television?”

“Apparently they’re letting us watch the Olympics. This is great! I love watching the Olympics.”

The students discussed among themselves fervently, completely drowning out the sounds from the television. Only a few students with good grades quietly studied, and Bai Qingqing was one of them.

She’d fallen behind so much in her studies that she was unable to follow along in cla.s.s. She urgently needed to recap the content she’d studied previously, and this was her best chance to do it.

She took the opportunity to revise with her head down.

The form teacher hit the teacher’s desk and said sternly, “Quiet!”

The cla.s.sroom became quieter.

The form teacher was a Chinese teacher who was more than fifty years old. He was old-fas.h.i.+oned and patriotic and cared greatly about the Olympics.

Today was one of the rare times where he’d cracked a smile. He said to the cla.s.s spiritedly, “Hehe. Our country has produced a star this year. His name is Muir, and he’s already won fifteen gold medals for the country, breaking the world record for the most number of gold medals won at a single Olympics Games and setting a much higher one. He’s still going to partic.i.p.ate in a few more events, and he’ll definitely break the record for the highest overall number of gold medals.”

His words caused an uproar in the cla.s.s.

Bai Qingqing’s ears perked up. “Muir?”

Had she misheard him because she was too worried about Muir?

Bai Qingqing nudged Tang Li beside her with uncertainty. “What name did Mr. Li mention just now?”

“Muir.” Tang Li was excited as well. She grabbed Bai Qingqing’s hand and continued, “Thirteen gold medals. Our country only won thirty-odd medals last year. How could we not come in first this time?”

“M-Muir?” Bai Qingqing rubbed her nose and looked at the television doubtfully.

It had to be someone else with the same name. How could Muir partic.i.p.ate in the Olympics, and in swimming, no less? He hated water. If it was Curtis, maybe she would be more believing.

Bai Qingqing looked down and returned her gaze to her book. Then, she immediately looked up again.

The camera focused on the swimming trunks-wearing Muir’s face for several seconds before quickly capturing other people.

When Bai Qingqing looked up again, Muir’s face was no longer in the frame.

Shocked yet still uncertain, her mouth was agape as she placed a hand over her heart.

Who did she see just now? Wasn’t that Muir?

“Come on, stop looking at your books. The event’s about to start!” Tang Li s.n.a.t.c.hed her book and looked at the television screen with a hand placed under her chin.

No longer able to focus on studying, Bai Qingqing gulped and watched the event with widened eyes, afraid that she would miss any moment of it.

As the timer started counting down, the people watching the television could feel the tension in the arena. They all held their breath, and silence descended the cla.s.sroom.
