Both Nicole and Evan were surprised to hear Maya’s words.
Quietly, the latter turned Nicole. “Maya is ranked first among her school’s public speakers?”
Nicole had a similar look of disbelief on her face. Nina had been saying that Maya could not express herself well since young. She was surprised to hear that her daughter had become the best public speaker in her school.
The woman’s heart soared in delight. “Maya’s a smart kid too.”
Just as her words left her mouth, Nina responded, “Stop bluffing. We’re in the same grade. How can I not know that you’re ranked first?”
“Hahaha! I dream of becoming the first. I’ve never told anyone about it, so how could you have known?”
