Chapter 404: Mister’s childhood lover (Part 57)
There were some things where winning wasn’t winning and losing wasn’t losing.
Too much attachment will trap your thoughts and you will never escape.
Ji Chen sat down beside her and his gaze was a bit off. He wasn’t as helpless as before and rather he felt like he had let go.
“Alright, next we invite number thirty four to come up for the challenge.”
Luo Qing Chen looked down at her ticket and found it was her number.
But Ji Chen grabbed her hand and shook his head with a faint smile, “Don’t go, you aren’t his match.”
“How do you know that I’m not his match!” Luo Qing Chen said with a smile, “You don’t believe in me!”
“The question I had you do last time isn’t even at the same level as the one I gave you last time.” Ji Chen’s eyes sparkled with a look saying that he wasn’t willing to let his little assistant be bullied.
“Are you here number thirty four? Are you planning to give up?”
“Here!” Luo Qing Chen suddenly stood up, attracting everyone’s attention.
She didn’t forget to look down at Ji Chen and say in a soft voice, “If I win tonight, you have to bring me to the Crown Group’s anniversary banquet tonight.”
After saying this, she turned to move up to the stage.
She left behind her back, causing Ji Chen to reveal a look of pity.
Ke, ke, was she supposed to be his partner?
No matter how he thought of it, he felt a bit excited……
It was like during this long time, it was a feeling he hadn’t felt in a while.
It was very strange……
“Ai, this really is funny.” Li Sheng looked at her and his eyes were filled with disdain, “Don’t blame me for bullying a little girl. I’ll give you ten seconds, you can answer first.”
“Oh, alright.” She picked up the tablet pen and turned to look at the screen with a soft laugh.
The questions appeared on the screen.
Looking up, lifting her hand, and putting the pen down.
This took less than three seconds.
“There’s still seven seconds.” She turned to look at Li Sheng and gave a shrug, as her expression didn’t change at all while she said, “You’ve already lost.”
“Si——” The crowd was filled with an uproar.
A girl that seemed incredibly young actually defeated last year’s champion in less than ten seconds of going onto the stage.
People were simply shocked, as whispers began to pass through the conference hall.
Li Sheng looked at the screen in panic before turning to the host, “This doesn’t count. I was just going easy on her, I never thought that she would take advantage of this.”
“This……” The host said with some difficulty, “Perhaps this isn’t too……”
“It doesn’t matter.” Luo Qing Chen cut off the host with a faint smile before looking at Li Sheng and saying, “My master said that respecting the old is good moral character, it doesn’t matter.”
“This young miss, what is your master’s name?” An old man under the stage pushed up his glasses as he asked Luo Qing Chen.
As soon as he voice fell, she turned to face the screen as her clear eyes lit up.
Perhaps she didn’t know it, but this action from her on stage had moved Ji Chen’s heart.”
“I’ll let you be arrogant for a bit.” Li Sheng gritted his teeth as he looked at her and spoke.
Then more questions appeared on the screen.
Luo Qing Chen always wrote the answer when Li Sheng had calculated it.
Every time she did this, she allowed Li Sheng to catch her within five seconds.
As time passed, Li Sheng became more and more unfocused and Luo Qing Chen had to wait longer and longer.
When it came to the twentieth question, Luo Qing Chen looked at Li Sheng with his face covered in sweat and his messy hair and said, “Sorry, I don’t want to wait any longer.”
After saying this, she wrote the answer on her tablet right away and ended the competition.
