Chapter 3.1

With a quick blink of the eyes, the hot summer days ended. On the first day of school, Xing Yu pulled Qing Hai to read the published time-table on the board. After a while, she screamed with excitement. This is because not only both of them are in the same Year 5 class, her result have also broke record. In the face of such proud records, Xing Yu is very excited. Qing Hai is not surprised and did not show much excitement just hump and then picked up his bag heading into the classroom.

The list of students in the Year 5 classes, also includes Liu Qian Yun and the previously not in their class, Wu Heng.

At the beginning of the semester, it is always imperative to draw lots to determine seats and to select the leaders in the class. Qing Hai obtain the class monitor seat while the assistant monitor is won by Liu Xian Yun.

Soon, fall comes and the large maple trees on the campus began to show the sign of the season.

End of the semester test, posted at the entrance of the school’s academic performance rankings, Qing Hai easily won the top placement. The campus Prince, Wu Heng comes in second and Liu Xian Yun came in fourth.

Year 5 students gathered. The new instructor with a stern face that rarely smiled.

As the results are always maintain, Xing Yu due to miserable math scores, has her ranking fell a few position.

“Thirty-seven points! The subject teacher gives out of kindness!”

Xing Yu maths skills despite the practiced is beyond the realm of mortal. A basket of fifteen apples can make her into a dozen, this talent is definitely not one of ordinary people can have. Despite that had happened several times, Qing Hai still unbelievably cannot believe her.

It is said that the minimum score of the whole school year is thirty-two.

“Yes, I also beat three people Oh!” Optimist Xing Yu trying to fish for some compliment.

“Believe or not, I will now throw the papers onto the street. So that it will be picked up by the passers-by. To see if mostly will frowned, or will be pleased to say: ‘cannot blame the child. She at least choose the right guess, and is lucky. Thirty Seven points is worthy of setting up firecrackers as reward ‘… … ”

“Qing Hai, it is very disgraceful. Return me the test paper!” See the river full of papers in the breeze in the crumbling, Xing Yu hurriedly uses her hand to grab back the papers.

“Luckily you still one the feeling of losing face.”

Qing Hai decided to use lunch time daily to tutor Xing Yu using her reference book. He is trying to help her in bringing out her mathematical cells but it is not willing……..

“The Cubic approach is very simple. Like this question, X minus the two by subtraction, do you see it?”

“Well,” the reply with the sound of heart.

“Well, as I have just said, get Y equals two by three …”

“Oh, two by three, eight!”

“… … a total waste the food for such an idiot woman.” Qing Hai was trembling in anger.

“Just after a meal and now working so hard. Not afraid of indigestion?” Wu Heng suddenly intervene in laugh. This slightly ease the air that was filled with the smell of the gunpowder.

Qing Hai turned to look at him and sighed. “Did you not give up?”

Wu Heng suddenly put away a smile, earnestly said: “Qing Hai, you are the first defender of the basketball team.”

“The record is used to make motivate people,” Qing Hai began to clean up the books. “After a while, perhaps there will be more powerful rising star. You pay attention to the performance of the younger brother within the team.”

“You are my best partner. No one can pass as good as you. I really do not understand, you obviously have interest in playing basketball. Why suddenly withdraw from it?”

Qing Hai is only interested in growing taller. Xing Yu silently said in her heart on the side.

“It is not sudden. I made the decision after thinking about it for a while. The reason is very simple. And I am not interested in going back.”

The afternoon class bell sounded. Qing Hai got up and went back into his seats.

Watching Qing Hai leave, Wu Heng’s gave a helpless and upset expression. He could not help but turn to Xing Yu and asked: “Do you know the reason why?”

Xing Yu shook her head. “Although I do not understand why, but you going after Qing Hai like this is useless.”

“It seems so.” He gave a weary smile. “But I really want to know what reasons that resulted in Qing Hai choosing to join taekwondo.”
