Ying Jiao raised his eyes and looked at Jing Ci steadily.
Jing Ci didn’t notice his gaze at all, and all his attention was focused on the little rose.
The little rose was completely dry, and when it was dropped to the ground so suddenly, the brittle petals fell down, and half of it was destroyed in the blink of an eye.
Jing Ci was so distressed that he couldn’t even care about the embarrassment and shame of his secret being discovered. He squatted down and wanted to pick up the flower, but he was afraid that the petals would fall off if he moved it, and did not dare to touch it.
He couldn’t help but feel regret in his heart, he frowned and muttered: “Why did it fall like this…”
Ying Jiao couldn’t bear it any longer, stood up and dragged him into his arms.
What kind of luck did he have to meet such a good person as Jing Ci.
Ying Jiao knew that the iron box contained all the exam papers when Jing Ci took first place, and that was his most important thing.
And now, he has reserved a place for himself in such precious space,
102 points in mathematics, but he was so happy, just because he has improved a little bit from the last time.
“Hua, don’t step on the flower…” Jing Ci tilted his head to look at the ground, but Ying Jiao held his face with both hands.
“I know, I won’t.” Ying Jiao kissed his forehead, his eyelids, and the corners of his lips gently, unbelievably tender: “Do you know why I bought that flower specifically?”
The feeling of joy that his heart was treasured, made Ying Jiao’s heart tremble.
Although his character is introverted and he doesn’t like to express himself, he has been working very hard to approach him and cherish him in his own way.
Jing Ci’s eyelashes trembled, and he said softly, “The meaning of flowers…”
Ying Jiao understood.
“Why do you…” Ying Jiao took a deep breath, feeling that he was about to be sweetened by him: “Why are you so likable.”
Jing Ci raised his eyes in amazement.
Ying Jiao chuckled lightly and lowered his head to kiss him.
“Open your mouth.” Ying Jiao licked Jing Ci’s lips lightly and whispered.
Jing Ci obediently parted his lips, letting the tip of Ying Jiao’s tongue stick in.
It was the first time that they had done such a long and gentle kiss. From the bedside to the door, Ying Jiao kissed him extremely lingeringly, as if to put all their love into this kiss and pass it on to Jing Ci.
When Ying Jiao finally let go of him, Jing Ci’s legs were so weak that he could barely stand. He rested his forehead on Ying Jiao’s shoulder, panting rapidly.
“Does your forehead hurt?” Ying Jiao grabbed his waist and lifted him up.
“It doesn’t hurt.”
“If it doesn’t hurt, don’t work so hard.” Ying Jiao gently stroked the back of his neck and sniffed the fragrance of the shampoo on his hair, his heart was sour and soft.
Jing Ci must have hoped that he could enter the same university as him, but he never put pressure on him.
He didn’t say anything, just took his notes seriously, picked out workbooks, and did everything possible to help him. Remembering each of his achievements, and cheering him on silently in his heart.
Still not enough, Ying Jiao thought, his efforts are still not enough.
Jing Ci’s iron box was used to fill volumes, he didn’t want him to make an exception for himself, he just wanted to give him the best.
The two held each other for a while, until each other’s breathing calmed down, and then they separated.
“You sit, I’ll clean up.” Ying Jiao squatted down and picked up the papers one by one into the box.
When he picked up the flower, he accidentally used a little more force, and the poor petals, which were already few, clicked and shattered again.
Jing Ci took a breath and immediately said, “Don’t move, I’ll come.”
He carefully took the flower from Ying Jiao’s hand and put it into the box lightly. After doing all this, he did not get up, but continued to pick up those petals on the ground.
Piece by piece, patiently and meticulously collected in the palm of his hand.
Looking at him like this, Ying Jiao didn’t know why he just wanted to laugh. His eyes fell right on Jing Ci, and the corners of his lips were raised uncontrollably. He forgot to even get up, and just squatted on the ground, smiling proudly and happily.
It wasn’t until Jing Ci went to the cupboard to find a container for the petals, that he followed and hugged him from behind.
Jing Ci was stunned for a moment, then lowered his eyes, the corners of his lips lifted slightly, and he relaxed.
The next day was the last day before the winter vacation. The students were not interested in studying, and we’re looking forward to vacation. The teachers also turned a blind eye to this, too lazy to emphasize any classroom discipline.
At noon, Ying Jiao did not go to the cafeteria with Jing Ci for dinner, but went to Vientiane city.
After communicating with a designer, and found a Burger King at random, and went back after a simple meal.
At the same time, Father Jing came out of the company, bought some strawberries and cherries at the roadside fruit store, and drove to Donghai province.
This was the first time he had come to the Provincial Experimental High School. After registering with the guard and asking for directions, he gathered up his loose hair, which had been blown by the wind, and walked towards the school.
However, the first teaching building and the second teaching building of the provincial experiment are very close, and they look almost exactly the same. The guard just pointed a finger towards the building, but they were so far apart that Father Jing could not tell which building it is.
Afraid of going in the wrong direction, and making a joke out of himself, he looked left and right, saw someone in front of him, his eyes lit up, and he hurriedly shouted, “Classmate!” and chased after him.
“May I ask, which building is for grade 2, class 7?”
Ying Jiao glanced at him and said, “Come with me, I happen to be in class 7.”
“Ah? It’s such a coincidence!” Father Jing secretly sighed at his luck, and with such a subtle show-off mentality, he said to Ying Jiao: “So you are Jing Ci’s classmate, I am Jing Ci’s father.”
Ying Jiao turned his head abruptly.
Father Jing didn’t notice the change in his eyes, so he said to himself, “How is Jing Ci in your class, does he fit in with the group? He has a dull temper and is studying every day, right?”
Ying Jiao looked at Father Jing up and down, it turned out to be this old beast. He looks like a human being, but he is not good with personal matters.
It’s a pity, no matter what, he is Jing Ci’s blood-related father, otherwise he would get rid of him.
“He’s friendly.” Ying Jiao raised his eyebrows and changed the topic without a trace: “Jing Ci is very popular, and everyone in our class likes him very much, especially me.”
As far as Jing Ci’s character is concerned, can he even be popular? Father Jing didn’t believe a word.
However, this classmate can speak quite a bit.
He followed Ying Jiao forward and asked, “What’s your name? You have a good relationship with Jing Ci?”
“Ying Jiao.” Ying Jiao glanced at Father Jing with a half-smile, and said, “Yes, we are together every day.”
Father Jing wanted to say something else, but Ying Jiao said again: “It’s just that I don’t know what’s going on with Jing Ci recently, he stopped eating meat when he goes to the cafeteria, and eats vegetables every day. Do you know the reason?”
Father Jing’s head buzzed, and his cheeks suddenly became hot.
He is a person who cares about his face. He can cut off his living expenses, but others can’t know about this.
Father Jing smiled awkwardly. Now he doesn’t want to continue talking with Ying Jiao, he just wants to hurry to class 7.
“Wait, wait for me to ask him.”
Ying Jiao snorted, they only had this connection, because of some blood relationship.
“Hey? Are we not going there?” Father Jing was guilty and didn’t dare to look at Ying Jiao, so he pretended to look at the scenery and looked around. Only at this moment did he find that they were not going in the direction of the two teaching buildings at all.
Ying Jiao had a natural look on his face: “Yes.”
Father Jing was puzzled: “But the guard told me that you are on the third floor of the teaching building.”
“It was there before, but It moved to a courtyard two days ago because they wanted to make room for the third year’s.” Ying Jiao didn’t change his face and his heart didn’t jump: “Fortunately, you met me, otherwise you would have to go the wrong way.”
Father Jing suddenly said: “So that’s the case, then thank you very much.”
Ying Jiao hooked his lips lazily: “No need.”
It is said that the siheyuan of the provincial experiment is particularly good in feng shui, so it is specially used for the third year’s. In order to prevent idlers from entering at will, an iron gate was specially installed at the main entrance.
In front of the door were two sturdy and straight big trees, like door gods, guarding the left and right sides.
It was lunch break, the whole school was silent, and there was no one on the playground.
Ying Jiao led Jing’s father to the gate of the courtyard, pointed at one of the trees and said, “It’s windy, go and wait under the tree, I’ll go in and call Jing Ci out.”
This arrangement was in line with Father Jing’s wishes.
He was especially afraid that Jing Ci would make trouble with himself in the corridor regardless of his concern, so it would be much better to meet here.
Father Jing smiled with satisfaction and walked under the tree: “I really troubled you.”
Ying Jiao entered the courtyard without stopping, and went directly to the security room.
The courtyard has only one main entrance, but the security room inside has a small door to go out.
Ying Jiao glanced back at Father Jing under the tree and raised his lips.
The biggest feature of the provincial experiment in winter is the flocks of crows.
He didn’t know why, but the crows especially like the two trees at the entrance of the courtyard, and they always like to stop there.
Therefore, both teachers and students in the provincial experiment always keep one thing in mind: they must never stand under the tree in the courtyard, otherwise they will be attacked by bird feces.
He didn’t believe that, Jing’s father could still go upstairs to look for Jing Ci with his whole body covered with bird feces.
Jing Ci didn’t take a nap, and was doing a math Olympiad problem. Normally, Ying Jiao would not disturb his study, but today is a special case.
It was too quiet in the classroom to talk at the moment. Ying Jiao grabbed Jing Ci’s wrist and pulled him out.
Father Jing may come a second time. It is better to tell him in advance than to leave him unprepared.
Jing Ci knew that there must be something wrong with Ying Jiao’s sudden action, he didn’t ask or resist, and followed him out of the classroom.
“Your dad is here.” As soon as the door closed, Ying Jiao said to Jing Ci, “I just met him outside.”
Jing Ci’s pupils shrank suddenly, and his eyes instantly turned cold: “Where is he…where?”
“He was led by me to the courtyard tree.” Ying Jiao asked softly, “He has been pestering you all this time?”
Jing Ci nodded.
Before, Jing’s father called him several times. After he hung up, he knew that he would not answer him again, so he sent WeChat instead.
Ying Jiao snorted: “He really has face.”
He shook Jing Ci’s hand and said, “It’s okay, I just told you to prepare yourself mentally, he definitely won’t be able to find you today.”
Ying Jiao paused and lowered his voice: “If you want to solve it completely, I have a solution, you…”
Before he finished speaking, Teacher Liu’s roar suddenly came from behind: “It’s noon, what are you two doing if you are not sleeping in the morning(?)?”
Teacher Liu hurried over, ignored Jing Ci, and fired at Ying Jiao: “What are you doing with Jing Ci? Is it something important that you can’t you say after class?”
“Teacher,” Jing Ci stepped forward and said softly, “My dad is here.”
Ying Jiao looked at Jing Ci in amazement, Jing Ci… When did he tell Old Liu about his family?
Teacher Liu’s next words made him suddenly swallow his words into his stomach.
Teacher Liu was silent for a while and asked Jing Ci, “What do you want to do?”
Jing Ci said without hesitation: “I don’t want to contact him anymore.”
“Then what about winter break? You won’t go back?”
In all fairness, Teacher Liu felt that if he had such a father, he would have done more than Jing Ci.
But winter vacation is not the only holiday this month. For such a long period of time, there is also New Year in the middle. Where can Jing Ci stay without going home?
“He won’t return.” Before Jing Ci could speak, Ying Jiao said, “Live at my house.”
Teacher Liu was surprised. Was the relationship between Ying Jiao and Jing Ci already so good?
Don’t go home, and with Ying Jiao…
Teacher Liu pondered for a while, and suddenly felt that this idea was quite good.
Ying Jiao has always lived alone, and Jing Ci can at least be a companion for him when he stays over. Moreover, Jing Ci has strong self-control and good learning ability, and can also tutor Ying Jiao’s homework at that time.
All his worries were gone, Teacher Liu no longer thought about it, and said to the two: “You go back to the classroom first.”
Seeing that Ying Jiao wanted to say something, Teacher Liu glared at him: “I’m here, did I say that it’s your turn to come forward? Hurry back for me!”
After speaking, he asked Jing Ci, “Where is your father now?”
Ying Jiao: “He was taken to the tree at the entrance of the courtyard.”
Teacher Liu was both angry and amused. After driving the two back, he went downstairs to the courtyard.
When he saw Father Jing, Father Jing was holding his hands, running out from under the tree in a state of embarrassment, he was covered with white bird droppings and almost collapsed.
For some reason, Teacher Liu suddenly felt a strange sense of refreshment in his heart.
It was actually a good thing for Ying Jiao to see this scum first…
“Jing Ci’s father?” Teacher Liu was stunned. After seeing this scene, he walked up and called out, “I’m Liu Shichen, I am Jing Ci’s head teacher.”
Jing’s father immediately blushed, his appearance was actually seen by Jing Ci’s head teacher…
Teacher Liu pretended not to see his face, and said, “My student informed me, and I came to see, you are…” He paused, until Father Jing’s face turned purple before continuing: “Shall I take you to the bathroom to clean up?”
In embarrassment, Father Jing wanted to find a cloth to cover his face, and nodded again and again: “Trouble teacher.”
Teacher Liu took Father Jing to the bathroom on the first floor.
The provincial experimental high school is on the first floor and the second floor, and the second years are on the third floor and the fourth floor. Among them, teachers’ toilets are set up on the first and third floors.
After all this tossing, Father Jing didn’t want to go see Jing Ci anymore. He was so sick now that he couldn’t hold back his vomit. He didn’t even want to go to work, he just wanted to take a leave from the company and go home to take a bath.
“Jing Ci’s father, did you come here for something today?” Teacher Liu asked straight to the point after leaving the bathroom.
“It’s nothing,” father Jing smiled embarrassedly: “I just came to see Jing Ci during the lunch break.”
“Jing Ci is a good boy,” Teacher Liu praised Jing Ci without hesitation: “This time he has won glory for the whole province. Our principal likes him very much, and often sighs that Jing Ci would be better if he were his child.”
He stared at Father Jing’s eyes and asked, “Aren’t you also happy as his parents?”
Father Jing looked a little unnatural. He seriously suspected that there was still bird sh*t on his body that had not been cleaned up.
“Actually, I’ve wanted to talk to you for a long time, but you’ve never participated in any parent-teacher conference.” Teacher Liu smiled and continued: “I heard that Jing Ci had a bit of a misunderstanding with his family…”
Father Jing interrupted him quickly: “No misunderstanding, no misunderstanding.”
He was guilty like a thief. Hearing what Teacher Liu said, he subconsciously felt that Jing Ci had told Teacher Liu that he had cut off his living expenses, and immediately defended himself: “Teacher, you also know that Jing Ci was born from my ex-wife.”
Teacher Liu hummed.
“This child has a twisted personality. He always thinks that I am partial to my second child, and thinks it’s useless to say anything. Hey, as a parent, how can I not give my child living expenses? It’s only because I took up a big project last month, and I was too busy, and I forgot. This is what made him misunderstood.”
“His grades have been bad in the past two years. Did I not pay him money as usual?”
“It turned out to be like this.” Teacher Liu nodded: “I understand you, but you also know that Jing Ci has now entered the national training team, and there are two rounds of selections to come. He is not only doing this for himself, but also for the provincial experiment, so it is very important to our entire Donghai Province.”
There are still two rounds left? Isn’t it not just a direct delivery? Father Jing was dizzy and couldn’t understand the situation at all, so he could only nod his head pretending to understand.
“Our school is very concerned about his mental state, and he doesn’t want to see you now…”
Teacher Liu stopped for a while, and was satisfied to see Father Jing’s red face, and then continued: “Then you should respect this, and don’t look for him again.”
“How can this be done!” This father Jing didn’t agree. He didn’t care about any competition, since, he(JC) had already got a guaranteed spot.
At this time, if he does not repair his relationship with Jing Ci, it will be more difficult later.
“Why not?” Teacher Liu looked at him with a half-smile, and said with some meaning in his words: “Don’t worry, Jing Ci has a strong ability to regulate his emotions. Before our class held a parent-teacher meeting, he was the only one in his class to have no family members show up. He can take this with ease.”
Father Jing felt as if he had been slapped hard, his face hurt so badly that he couldn’t say a word.
Teacher Liu didn’t bother to deal with Father Jing any more, and said directly: “This child can take care of himself and does not need that much discipline. He can become a talent on his own, so you can rest assured.”
Father Jing walked out of the teaching building in a state of embarrassment, feeling that he couldn’t raise his head, his mind was full of Teacher Liu’s contemptuous eyes just now.
He gritted his teeth and hated Jing Ci who made him lose face. Isn’t it just a talk? What’s the big deal! He has no shortage of sons, and he will train Miaomiao well, and he will also go to Tsinghua University and Peking University.
It’s Jing Ci, without the living expenses he gave, let’s see how long he can last!
He didn’t realize that there was a woman around the corner, who had been there ever since he talked to Teacher Liu.
It really deserves to be Father Jing’s unlucky day, this woman is his colleague. It’s the one who said last time that their child was in the first year of high school and was also studying the Olympiad.
But since the college entrance examination canceled the extra points for the Olympiad, the competition class of the provincial experiment has been suspended, and it seems that there is no plan to open it again. She waited and waited. Seeing that the winter break was coming soon, she couldn’t help it, so she took advantage of the company’s lunch break to come to the school and wanted to talk to the teacher and ask what the situation was.
Unexpectedly, she ran into Father Jing in the corridor.
She wanted to wait for him and Teacher Liu to finish talking, then go up to say hello, and grab a ride back by the way, but she never expected to hear such a big melon.
It turned out that the young boy who entered the national training team was Jing Jianguo’s son!
(T/n: This is the first time JC’s fathers full name was revealed, and this might also be the last time lol)
But f*ck how is that unbiased!
She has not been close to her colleague for a few years. But how could she know about Jing Miao and not Jing Ci?
If he was not partial, why didn’t Jing Jianguo directly say that it was his child when they were talking about Jing Ci? I’m afraid that he had a guilty conscience, right? He didn’t even know that his son had made such a dazzling achievement.
The female colleague’s anger was high, and what big project! Their group just finished a project before, and they had a lot of free time last month! And he forgot to pay the living expenses, it had to be intentional!
Is the child lying? ! How is it possible, didn’t he see the eyes of how the other teacher looked at him!
Jing Jianguo is really a beast!
The female colleague laughed, took out her mobile phone, opened the WeChat group, and started typing.
So, the lunch break is not over yet. Jing Jianguo’s partiality, not giving living expenses to his ex-wife’s son, and when other(JC) got good grades, and then spreads it throughout the company.
Not only that, because Father Jing worked for an Internet company, their circle was very small, so when there was news, the whole circle would know about it.
Coupled with the fact that Jing Ci has become very famous these days, the news spread outside the company with an unstoppable speed of light…
Jing Ci didn’t know that father Jing was about to get more unlucky. After school ended in the evening, he took his things and went home with Ying Jiao.
“You can put it as you like,” Ying Jiao turned on the light in the cloakroom, walked in with his luggage, and said to Jing Ci, “put it wherever you like.”
Jing Ci looked at the two compartments one after another, and they were all covered with clothes. He couldn’t help but sigh: “You have so many clothes.”
“Huh?” Ying Jiao stopped and looked back at him: “It’s not mine, it’s yours.”
Jing Ci was taken aback: “Mine?”
“Yeah, I bought it.” Ying Jiao looked at him and said, “The tags have been cut and the clothes were washed, so you can wear them right away. Didn’t you come to my house without suitable clothes to wear?”
When Jing Ci said yesterday that he was going to pack up, Ying Jiao wanted to stop him. Anyway, he prepared enough clothes that he didn’t need to take any extra clothes. But after thinking about it again, he let him bring something familiar, so that he doesn’t have a sense of belonging at home, so he didn’t say it.
“Why are you…” Jing Ci’s throat choked and he couldn’t continue.
How can Yin Jiao be so good…
Jing Ci’s nose was sore, he didn’t want to lose his composure in front of Ying Jiao, and desperately restrained the emotions in his heart, and found an excuse to continue: “How do you know my size?”
“I’m kidding.” Ying Jiao raised his eyebrows and said meaningfully: “My own boyfriend, I touched and hugged him, how can I not know?”
Jing Ci’s face flushed red.
But he couldn’t help thinking in his heart that he didn’t touch him, only hugged…
“Okay, clean up and do whatever you want.” Ying Jiao bowed his head and kissed him: “This is your home, isn’t it?”
Jing Ci nodded.
Ying Jiao leaned aside and watched him get busy.
Although he liked watching Jing Ci wear his clothes, it was too inconvenient to wear one size bigger all the time, not to mention—
Ying Jiao smirked.
If he took off the clothes he picked with own hands, it would have a different taste.
