Chapter 132 Persuasion to Join the Sports Meeting!
While thinking, Fang Qiu clicked into the post.
In the meantime.
In a rather quiet dormitory in the University of Jiangjing Chinese Medicine.
Wearing a pair of glasses, a male student dressed in a white shirt and a pair of suit pants was scanning the list at the computer.
“I didn’t expect anyone else to get a perfect score just like me.”
Staring at the list, the man frowned slightly.
His eyes fell on the second list.
It was his name, Zhao Yancheng, that was written there.
He seemed to resent the fact that his name was not put in the first place.
Zhao Yancheng murmured, his eyes falling on the first name, “Is this the man who proposed the Apprentice Plan?”
“Do you think you’re so awesome because you came up with a good proposal?”
“This time, I want all of you to know who the real genius is!”
As soon as the list of the new competition was announced, it immediately sparked a lot of discussion among all students in the university.
In addition to first-year students, a lot of sophomores, juniors, and even seniors were talking about it.
“Three freshmen of this year got full marks??”
“It is said that the exam was not easy. Three freshmen got perfect scores, and the two candidates got more than 90 points. Our juniors are not simple!”
“Haha, this is University of Jiangjing Chinese Medicine!”
“Don’t flatter them in a hurry. These scores are not important; what is important is the result of the freshmen knowledge contest. Don’t forget that our university ranked last but one last time. I’m ashamed to think of it!”
“Yeah, I hope the freshmen can turn the tide and keep the reputation of our university.”
“What reputation does our university have?”
“In my opinion, this is a good opportunity. Because of the poor performance last time, the freshmen of this year will not feel too much pressure. At worst, they have sophomores to save their face. If they do well in the knowledge contest, they will be the ones to restore the school to its former glory…”
In the dorm.
Fang Qiu clicked into the post and found the list of the Jingbei University of Chinese Medicine. Impressively, he found out that Jiang Mengjie also won first place with full marks.
Looking at the rankings, Fang Qiu couldn’t help but smile.
Now he understood why Jiang Mengjie had said that they would meet again.
“Let me congratulate her,” he thought.
He took out his cell phone and dialed Jiang Mengjie’s number.
A familiar voice came from the other end of the line.
“You deserve to be a Straight-A Student. You won first place in school again. Congratulations.”
Fang Qiu said smilingly.
“I should congratulate you, instead.”
Jiang Mengjie laughed sweetly and said, “Your school is much more competitive than mine. With so many strong opponents, you easily won first place with full marks. It’s not something an average person can do.”
“When it’s time for the knowledge contest, you have to show mercy to me!”
Fang Qiu said, “I’ll make you go home crying then.”
Jiang Mengjie snorted, “It’s uncertain who’s going home crying!”
In the girls’ dormitory of the University of Jiangjing Chinese Medicine.
“The rankings should be based on when the examination papers were submitted.”
Sitting before the desk and seeing herself, Fang Qiu, and Zhao Yancheng tie for first place, but with different rankings, Jiang Miaoyu secretly murmured. A faint smile crept over her face as her eyes fell on the name of Fang Qiu.
She browsed the list for a moment.
Then, she closed the post.
She looked down.
“The rankings of the other eight universities?”
With a movement of her hand, Jiang Miaoyu immediately clicked into it.
“Mengjie won first place as well?”
Seeing Jiang Mengjie’s name, Jiang Miaoyu was surprised. Although she knew that Jiang Mengjie was also a student of a University of Chinese Medicine, she did not expect her grades to be so good.
She felt happy for Jiang Mengjie. After all, they had a good chat. Jiang Miaoyu took out her cell phone, ready to call to congratulate her.
But as soon as she called, she was told that Jiang Mengjie was on the line.
She seemed to have guessed something.
She hesitated for a moment before dialing Fang Qiu’s number.
As it turned out, he was also on the phone.
She understood instantly.
The previous faint smile on her face turned bitter.
On the other side, Fang Qiu hung up after talking to Jiang Mengjie for a while.
He was about to turn off Sun Hao’s computer when he received a text message telling him that someone had called him.
Looking at the text message, Fang Qiu found that Jiang Miaoyu had called him.
Without thinking, Fang Qiu called back.
The phone rang.
However, nobody answered.
In the girls’ dormitory.
Jiang Miaoyu was still sitting at her desk, her computer off and her phone ringing.
Looking at the caller ID on the screen of her phone, she pursed her lips and did not move.
“Jiang Miaoyu, why don’t you answer the phone?”
Yuan Bei, who was making herself up on the other side, turned around and looked at Jiang Miaoyu curiously.
Jiang Miaoyu smiled and said, “It’s an unknown number.”
Yuan Bei nodded and continued to make herself up.
On this side.
Fang Qiu called three times in a row, but nobody answered.
Helplessly, he hung up the phone and got cleaned up, ready to go to class.
He came to the classroom.
And he caught sight of Zhu Benzheng, Sun Hao, and Zhou Xiaotian all at once.
“How was it?”
Approaching the three, Fang Qiu asked curiously, “Have you found him?”
However, the three looked at each other and shook their heads in dismay.
“It’s said that he’s on leave. He won’t be back for a few days.”
Zhu Benzheng said sadly.
“Why should he ask for leave at such a time?”
Zhou Xiaotian frowned and twitched his mouth.
“Is this God’s punishment for us?”
Sun Hao lifted up his eyes and sighed.
Nevertheless, Fang Qiu said with a laugh, “In my opinion, this is not the punishment from heaven, but a blessing from heaven for you. In other words, here’s your chance!”
Hearing that, the three looked bewildered at the same time.
“What do you mean?”
Sun Hao asked at once.
“Do I have to tell you that clearly?”
Fang Qiu shook his head slightly and added, “He is the caretaker of Yaowang Mountain. Once he left Yaowang Mountain, there would be no one to take care of it these days. Why don’t you take advantage of his absence for a few days to help him manage Yaowang Mountain?”
“What do you think he’ll think of you when he gets back if you take good care of it?”
As the three heard that, their eyes lit up.
“If he doesn’t have a good impression on you, and you go to study with him without careful consideration, why should he accept you as disciples? Does he know you?”
“As long as he has a good impression of you, you don’t have to worry about not being able to become his disciples.”
Fang Qiu stopped speaking and looked at the three.
“Yeah, why didn’t I think of that?”
Sun Hao slapped the table and gave Fang Qiu a thumbs-up.
“The youngest, I was right about you.”
Zhou Xiaotian said, giving a thumbs-up, “As expected, you’re…”
Fang Qiu immediately opened his mouth to interrupt Zhou Xiaotian. No good words were to be expected from Zhou Xiaotian.
But Zhou Xiaotian still finished his words. “You’re indeed the most scheming person in our dormitory!”
Fang Qiu was speechless.
He walked to an empty seat and sat down with his head buried in a book.
Over here, the three who had been inspired by Fang Qiu looked forward to being disciples all morning.
The class was over at noon.
After lunch, the three had no intention of taking a lunch break at all. They went straight to Yaowang Mountain and worked there.
Fang Qiu returned to the dormitory and continued reading.
In the afternoon.
The first class was PE class, and they had Sun Li, the former basketball teacher, as their teacher.
They did warm-up exercises.
After that, the teacher let the students do their own things and took Fang Qiu aside alone.
“What can I do for you, Mr. Sun?”
Fang Qiu asked with doubt as he followed Sun Li all the way to the grass at the edge of the playground.
“Fang Qiu, I didn’t expect you to run so fast.”
Sun Li opened his mouth and praised Fang Qiu.
He was a PE teacher.
So he had already learned about Fang Qiu’s running performance from Mr. Ma of the track team.
At that time, he was deeply surprised by Fang Qiu’s performance.
He hadn’t expected that there was such a great guy in his class and school!
At that very moment, he made Fang Qiu a plan.
“I’m used to running every morning.”
Fang Qiu replied with a modest smile.
“I wanted you here today because of something.”
Sun Li didn’t waste any time and came straight to the point. “Next month, there will be a provincial college sports meeting. Your performance is so good, so I hope you can represent our school in the sports meeting.”
“Did Coach Ma of the track team ask you to persuade me?”
Fang Qiu asked, frowning slightly.
Sun Li didn’t deny it. He just nodded and said, “The provincial college sports meeting is not only a matter of winning honor for the school but also an opportunity to win honor for yourself. With your record, it’s not difficult for you to win a championship in the running. Won’t it be a nice thing that all the students in the whole province will know you?”
“Besides, if you win the honor for the school, the school won’t treat you badly. Whenever you have the opportunity to participate in sports activities, the school will recommend you first. You have everything to gain and nothing to lose. You can not only win honor for the school but also win honor for yourself. Isn’t that killing two birds with one stone?”
Fang Qiu listened to Sun Li with a poker face.
He had been waiting for Sun Li to finish his words before shaking his head. “Mr. Sun, I’m sorry, I have to start preparing for the knowledge contest of traditional Chinese medicine next week, so I don’t have time to attend the sports meeting.”
He refused very flatly.
Sun Li was stunned.
He didn’t think of this.
He didn’t expect Fang Qiu to refuse so directly either.
Although he knew that the School of Chinese Medicine would soon participate in the freshmen knowledge competition, he didn’t know the list of participants. He had no idea Fang Qiu was one of the participants.
However, he had to persuade him.
“Isn’t it better?”
Sun Li laughed and continued, “You see, your achievements in traditional Chinese medicine are so good that you will surely be valued by the leaders of the School of Chinese Medicine. Once you win the honor for the school in the provincial college sports meeting, the leadership of the university will definitely favor you.”
“Besides, the fact that you are going to take part in the knowledge contest is not at all in conflict with the matter of joining the sports meeting. The sports meeting takes place right after the knowledge contest. You can do both.”
Fang Qiu shook his head again and said, “Mr. Sun, I still don’t want to join it.”
“Don’t refuse so soon!”
Sun Li said hurriedly, “It’s really good for you. As long as you get good grades in the sports meeting, the school will surely give you all the best resources. Whether you want to study Chinese Medicine or take up sports, your future is bright. Think again.”
“Let me put it this way.”
Seeing that Sun Li still didn’t give up, Fang Qiu couldn’t help but say, “Mr. Sun, If I take part in the sports meeting in my own name, will Mr. Ma still persuade me so actively?”
