Zhuang Nai Nai secretly regretted not telling him to save as much energy as possible.
Would he be embarassed if someone overtake him later? Would he feel ashamed if he ended up lying on the grass in front of everyone, too tired to move?
Her heartbeat raced.
On the first lap, Si Zheng Ting was in front of his nearest competitor by 10 metre. Zhuang Nai Nai watched on anxiously.
On the second lap, he was in front by 30 metre. Zhuang Nai Nai watched with a mix of surprise and dread.
On the third lap, he was the only one who managed to finish half of the run. Zhuang Nai Nai was stunned.
On the fourth lap, he was slowing down. Only a circle was separating him and his nearest competitor. Zhuang Nai Nai was so anxious she almost turned crazy.
When there was only 200 metre left, his competitor suddenly put a last burst effort, running towards the finishing line like crazy.
Zhuang Nai Nai’s heart jumped uncontrollably. Ignoring her reputation, she jumped up and screamed at him, “Go, Si Zheng Ting! Go, Si Zheng Ting!”
Perhaps he heard her voice, Si Zheng Ting suddenly picked up his speed.
He ran as fast as he could and crossed the finishing line, and in the process, created a new school record for the 1500m run!
The entire field turned crazy.
Be it their classmates or people from different years, they all erupted into a roaring cheer.
All the participants for the 1500m race were slouching over their stomachs, breathing heavily. Si Zheng Ting on the other hand, other than his wet hair, maintained his grace and elegance as he walked off to her.
The way he carried himself was shocking.
Zhuang Nai Nai and the rest of their classmates rushed towards him while cheering for him loudly. She looked like she wanted to kiss him.
“Si Zheng Ting! Si Zheng Ting! Si Zheng Ting!” Zhuang Nai Nai chanted while hugging his coat and all the other things he gave her earlier. Just as she was about to walk closer to him, she twisted her foot and fell sideway.
They were standing on the concrete floor next to the field, if she fell, it would be a bloody scene.
She closed her eyes tight, preparing for the impact. Someone grabbed her by the shoulder.
The sound of a body hitting the ground could be heard, but Zhuang Nai Nai did not feel any pain. In fact, the ground felt oddly soft.
She opened her eyes wide and came face to face with an ice block. She could smell his masculine scent that belonged exclusively to men.
That was the first time she ever got that close and intimate to him.
A boy ought to smell unpleasant when he was sweating, but Si Zheng Ting somehow smelled so attractive. She could not help herself from sniffing him.
She was completely shocked, unaware of how foolish she was looking at the moment. “Why did you save me?” she mumbled to him.
Don’t tell her that her relentless pursuit had touched the heavens, touched the earth and consequently, touched him?
With a cold face, he pushed her aside and got up, taking back all of his things from her before softly saying, “Lucky they didn’t break.”
