As soon as she returned to the classroom, Xia Xibei saw that several people had gathered around Tang Luo.
Seeing their somewhat agitated looks, Xia Xibei’s brow furrowed and she immediately stepped forward.
She only learned what had happened when she reached closer to them.
“Tang Luo, c’mon! You’re not feeling well right now?! We are up this afternoon!”
“Exactly! It’s too late for us to find someone new now. Do we have to withdraw?”
“Our class is already low on male students, and now that you’re absent, we will lose without a fight!”
Several boys gathered around Tang Luo, looking both helpless and anxious.
Tang Luo was also frustrated. How could he have known that this would happen?!
But he really was feeling ill! If he went on and played, he would feel even worse.
“I’m sorry, but I really can’t do it,” he repeated, his face slightly white. “As an apology, why don’t I buy you guys dinner?”
“This is not about a free dinner.”
The students looked at his weak little face and knew they couldn’t force him to play, so they could only be anxious.
They were a liberal arts class, with just about a dozen male students, and not everyone among these dozen boys could play basketball.
They had managed to gather five guys who could play basketball with some difficulty, training for a while. But at the last minute, Tang Luo wasn’t feeling well, so they didn’t even have a team anymore…
“What if we had Ding Xun take over?” one person suggested.
“Ding Xun?” The strongest and tallest boy among the few was speechless, asking in contempt, “He can’t even walk with the ball, what are you letting him go up there for? To give away free points?”
Who can’t make a basket while standing? But that wasn’t how basketball was played!
“How about Liu Fa?”
“He’s so nearsighted, he can’t see anything without glasses. You wanna kill him?!”
One candidate after another was vetoed, the group sighing miserably each time.
Tang Luo looked at them with an apologetic expression, his face slightly white, which made them feel even worse.
“Forget it. Anyway, even if we got up there, we’d lose. Let’s just not participate.”
A boy patted Tang Luo’s shoulder and helplessly comforted him, “Get some good rest.”
“I’m so sorry, I…”
“You guys were talking about playing basketball?” Xia Xibei suddenly asked.
The male students were startled and couldn’t help but take a step back when they saw it was Xia Xibei, blushing slightly.
Ever since Xia Xibei had revealed her glamour, the class beauty had changed, Jin Yazhen no longer the class beauty.
Xia Xibei was much prettier than Jin Yazhen, and her temperament was different too. Even though her clothes were unbelievably typical, adolescent boys couldn’t help but blush when they saw her.
They envied Tang Luo for being able to share a table with her but were too embarrassed to make a move.
It didn’t occur to them that while they were discussing the situation, Xia Xibei would show up, which made them unable to stop blushing.
Xia Xibei blinked, not having expected such a big reaction from them.
However, she didn’t think too much about it, continuing, “You can’t find a replacement?”
The student looked at each other,a sports committee member, a boy named Meng Xuelei, finally answering, “Yes, now there are four members, since we are missing one. We’re almost ready to disband.”
They knew they wouldn’t necessarily achieve anything in this competition, but they had trained hard before.
Who would have thought that one of them would not be able to participate just when the competition was about to start?
“Disband?” Xia Xibei looked at all of them and asked with a raised eyebrow, “Can I join?”
Several people froze for a moment, then stared at her.
“What did you say?!”
They had misheard, right?!
