The Second Marriage Was Spoiled By The Boss - Chapter 11.2
Edited by Dawn
Chen Xu and Tong Tong got to the first group where they had to run with their hands on the ground.
The parent would sit cross-legged on the ground, while the child would sit on the parents’ arms, and together they move forward with their arms supporting their bodies. The first one to get there wins.
This was a sport that demanded a lot of physical strength from both parents and children. Other families were all fathers with their children, while Chen Xu and Tong Tong stood in the preparation line, looking particularly striking.
The class teacher kindly stepped forward and said to Chen Xu in a low voice, “Tong Tong’s mother, why don’t you skip this one? I’ll cross you off the list.”
Chen Xu looked at her son who had lost his fighting spirit and then shook her head to reject the class teacher’s good intentions. “It’s okay, Tong Tong and I can do it.”
The game was about to begin. Chen Xu squatted down and looked at Tong Tong. “Son, do you want to surpass those fathers with your mother?”
“Well, later when mom yells 1, you raise your left arm, and when mom yells 2, you raise your right arm. We’ll both work hard together to run faster than them.”
“Come on,” Chen Xu stretched her hand into a fist and touched it lightly with her son’s small fist. “Cheer up!”
Chen Xu’s full spirit and provocative tone infected Tong Tong. When he looked at Chen Xu, the corners of his mouth slowly curled up, and finally turned into a bright smile. “Mom, cheer up!”
The mothers, who standing on the sidelines cheering for their husbands and sons, talked in a low voice when they looked at Chen Xu and her son with sympathetic eyes.
Chen Xu sat cross-legged on the ground, allowing Tong Tong to sit in the crook of her leg and put on protective gloves for both of them.
She wasn’t sure that she could win against those man-high fathers, but she would still do her best. So what if Lu Zhenyu didn’t come? If the fathers can do it, she, the mother, can do it as well.
When the game began, Chen Xu was surprised to find that she and Tong Tong could still take the lead.
Chen Xu had long and thin legs, while Tong Tong was also a slender little bean sprout. Accounting for the lightness and dexterity of the body, the two remained in the first place.
Chen Xu inwardly rejoiced, and the more she exerted her full strength to go at full speed. ‘First, first, first, first’ she silently chanted in her heart, hoping to get the first place and sweep away the gloom in her son’s heart.
But there was a difference in physical strength between men and women after all, and those strong fathers gradually mastered the rhythm and began to catch up.
One, two, three… More and more people overtook Chen Xu, and Tong Tong shouted desperately, “Mom, come on! Come on!”
Come on, come on! Chen Xu clenched her teeth and chased desperately.
The rough ground rubbed against the skin, Chen Xu’s thighs were hot and painful, sweat streamed down her forehead and the back of her neck. Her lungs felt like a handful of steel needles had been shoved into them, causing intense pain when she breathed.
The arms kept shaking, every move taking all of her strength.
When she finally reached the finish line, Chen Xu’s vision was blurred. Her head was buzzing with all the noise. Her heart was beating so hard that it almost popped out of her chest. She was sweating like rain, and her hair was all sweaty.
It’s the last one, wasn’t it? But as if everyone was in front of her, Chen Xu smiled helplessly.
There was still a difference in physical strength between men and women after all, but it didn’t matter. She did her best. Anyway, she took her son to the finish line.
Getting to the finish line is to win.
“Come on! Come on!” What’s going on? Why are people still cheering? Chen Xu wiped the sweat from her eyes and turned her head to look behind her.
My God! Chen Xu’s eyes widened in surprise.
There were even five sets of fathers and sons in the arena behind her!
She was in tenth place! Those five male parents were left behind by her!
The race was finally over, and Chen Xu stood in the middle of the group while holding her son’s hand. Her slender figure standing out in the pile of men as all eyes focused on her and Tong Tong.
People applauded warmly, the fathers looked admiringly at Chen Xu, and the mothers waved and cheered at her one after another. They gathered around to pass water to Chen Xu and help Tong Tong wipe his sweat.
“Well done, Tong Tong’s mother! That’s amazing!” The women put their thumbs up and gathered around her affectionately like sisters.
Seeing her son’s little face glowing with excitement, Chen Xu let out a long breath of relief. She didn’t win first place, but she let her son get more cheers and applause than the first place.
It didn’t matter at all if Lu Zhenyu didn’t come. She could do just as well.
“Oh, your leg is bleeding!” A mother exclaimed.
Chen Xu looked down and it was true. She had just sat on the ground and moved, so she had a lot of bruises on her thighs and calves, some of which flowed blood.
“Gee, you shouldn’t be wearing shorts. Go see the school doctor. Apply some antiseptic. The weather is hot, you can easily get infections when your skin is broken.” The mothers suggested with concern.
“Well, I’ll go over there later.”
Chen Xu planned to wait until the next race was over before going over. There was also a fun run. She and Tong Tong were also at the top of the list.
Influenced by their parents, the children also gave Tong Tong a thumbs up when they see him. “Tong Tong, your mom is awesome!”
Tong Tong has become the most popular person among the children. He had forgotten Lu Zhenyu’s broken appointment. He was very happy to run and jump with his friends.
Lu Zhenyu didn’t come to the sports meeting at last. He didn’t show up until the end of the sports meeting.
