When it was about to begin, the camera closed up on the compet.i.tors once more, especially focusing on a Chinese compet.i.tor with decidedly Western features.

The pen in Bai Qingqing’s hand dropped to her table with a thud, then dropped to the floor and rolled off.

In the utterly quiet cla.s.sroom, the sound of the ballpoint pen rolling on the floor was especially obvious. And yet, it was completely ignored by its owner.

Bai Qingqing’s jaw was also, like the ballpoint pen, dropped and ignored.

Bai Qingqing had a stunned look on her face, with her eyes wide and her mind completely blank.

My G.o.d, it really is Muir!

I think this year’s Olympics are being held in America. Why did Muir go to such a faraway place?

And how did he get into the Olympics? It hasn’t even been one week yet. He must be replacing another athlete, right?

The whistle was blown, and the athletes entered the water at lightning speed. Muir was several steps slower. When he carelessly jumped into the pool, the others had already used the momentum to swim more than two meters.

Tang Li’s face fell and she sighed. “That’s it. He’s off his game. He won’t be able to catch up no matter how fast he is.”

Bai Qingqing, on the other hand, breathed a sigh of relief. “That’s great. Go slower!”

How could the athletes compete when they were of different species? It was downright unfair. Even Muir, who was the worst at swimming, would beat any human by a long shot!

Thank goodness he was several steps late this time. Otherwise, she really wouldn’t dare to watch the compet.i.tion any longer.

The form teacher, who had watched several of Muir’s events, was calm and not in the least bit worried. Instead, he was excited and waited in antic.i.p.ation.

“Ah?” Tang Li quickly glanced at Bai Qingqing, thinking that she had misheard her, before returning her gaze to the television screen.

Muir’s aura changed the moment he entered the water. As he moved his long arms, he felt the water flow right through, completely going against the laws of physics. It was like he had pressed a water pump as his body moved forward in spurts.

Bai Qingqing’s face fell. She nervously bit her fingers and kept praying in her heart. Slower, slower, slower… just win by a small margin.

However, as the camera was pulled back, Muir was seen surpa.s.sing the other athletes and instantly shaking them off, immediately das.h.i.+ng her hopes.

Bai Qingqing bit her fingers and gasped. Her legs shook as she began to pray again. Slower, slower, slower… don’t win by too much.

There was already an uproar in the cla.s.sroom. Cheers like “That’s so fast!” and “Muir’s so handsome” could be heard, causing Bai Qingqing to feel a great sense of despair.

The form teacher felt a sense of honor as he looked at the students’ faces of excitement and adoration.

In the end, to no one’s surprise, Muir was the first to reach the finish line. Excited shouts could be heard from every window and cla.s.sroom door in the building as the students cheered.

Only Bai Qingqing was still nervously holding her breath.

Then, the camera began to pull back and the other athletes came into view.

Bai Qingqing bit on three fingers and thought,

Don’t get too far, please don’t get too far…

When the camera landed on a group of athletes right in the middle of their lanes, a taut nerve in Bai Qingqing’s brain finally snapped and she screamed. “Ah!”

Her hysterical cry cut through all the hubbub in the cla.s.sroom, causing everyone to suddenly look at her.

Bai Qingqing pinched back her split facial muscles into shape and curled her body up.

What the heck. Could Muir go any faster? He might as well transform for everyone to see!

He’d definitely be suspected now, right? Would he be taken away to some research facility to be cut up and experimented on?

As the students returned their gaze to the television, Zhang Xin looked at Bai Qingqing with interest and couldn’t help but blurt out, “So adorable.”
