Chapter 1005 - A Simple Celebration
Shen Zhijin raised his hand and gently touched her head.
“As long as Tangtang is happy.”
The next morning, Shen Li had an exam.
The exam hall was very quiet. As the two invigilators stood in front of each other, the only sound was the rustling of a pen on the exam paper.
Ten minutes after the exam began, someone walked in from the corridor and stopped at the front door of the exam hall.
The invigilator who was standing on the podium noticed something and turned his head to look. He saw three people standing outside the door.
The person in front was dressed in a crisp suit, with straight shoulders, looking handsome with a cool look in his eyes. It was Shen Zhijin.
The two behind him had work badges, indicating that they were the invigilators.
It seemed like they were here for an inspection.
The invigilator could not help but feel a little nervous. He immediately walked out in small steps to greet them.
Her lips moved as she prepared to say hello.
Shen Zhijin shook his head, indicating that she did not need to do this, so as not to affect the students as they took the exam.
The invigilator immediately shut up before suddenly remembering that Shen Li was in this exam room.
It was no wonder that Shen Zhijin had come over personally.
She nodded and retreated.
Shen Zhijin looked into the classroom.
Shen Li sat in the row at the end of the classroom, leaning against the wall, in the second-to-last row.
She sat there lazily, her eyes slightly drooping. She propped one hand at the side as she wrote on the paper with the other hand.
Her whole body exuded a lazy energy.
When other people took exams, they were usually at their most nervous, but she was different. Every time she took an exam, she was extremely relaxed and casual. She seemed to take it even less seriously than when she washed the bottles in the laboratory.
Just then, Shen Li seemed to have finished writing on one side and flipped the paper over.
In the quiet examination room, this sound was particularly clear.
Some students could not help but look in her direction.
It had only been ten minutes since the start of the exam! She had actually finished half of the exam papers!
Although they knew that they could not be compared to the god of learning, it was still very refreshing to experience the feeling of being crushed up close in an examination room.
As Shen Li was writing, she suddenly felt someone walking in from the corridor.
She was unbothered.
Then, that person stopped beside her as if he was looking at her paper.
It was normal for the invigilator to occasionally look at the students’ papers and answer cards.
She turned her pen and continued to write down the answer to another question.
Suddenly, she felt something and stopped moving.
It was as if…
She finally looked up and saw an extremely familiar face.
Shen Zhijin was standing beside her desk, looking at her test paper.
Shen Li was speechless.
Subconsciously, she straightened her shoulders.
Although this test paper was not difficult, it was still a little tricky to be stared at by her own father while writing down the answers to the questions in the examination room.
Shen Zhijin’s lips curved into an extremely faint curve, before he continued to walk back.
He walked around the examination room a little longer before leaving.
Shen Li looked up and saw that two inspectors were accompanying him outside the examination room.
He had not mentioned that he would come to the examination room today…
With this thought in mind, Shen Li lowered her head and sped up her writing.
The two invigilators were whispering something to Shen Zhijin.
“There are a total of six examination rooms on this floor. Vice Principal Shen, would you like to go over and take a look at the remaining five?”
The first one they had looked at was naturally the one where Shen Li was.
Shen Zhijin said,”I still have some other matters to attend to later, so I won’t be going.”
The two inspectors looked at each other in surprise.
Shen Zhijin had canceled all of his scheduled work for the day. It was said that he was preparing to return to Hong Kong City with Shen Li.
Other than this matter, surely there wasn’t anything else that he needed to do, right?
But wasn’t Shen Li still taking the exam? What could he possibly have–
Suddenly, the sound of a chair being dragged across the floor came from the exam hall.
The two inspectors subconsciously looked over and saw that Shen Li had already walked to the podium and handed in her papers.
Then, she returned to her seat, packed her things briefly, and came out.
“Dad, let’s go.”
The inspectors were speechless.
Oh, excuse me.
They had forgotten that this father and daughter pair were true gods of learning, dominating the examination venue.
One of the inspectors looked at the time without batting an eyelid.
This was amazing. The examination had only started twenty-one minutes ago, yet Shen Li had already handed in her papers.
It was no wonder that Shen Zhijin had come directly this way when he came up.
If he had come a little later, he probably would not even have been able to see Shen Li’s papers.
Shen Zhijin nodded.
He gave a few instructions to the two inspectors before he left with Shen Li.
At the end of the semester, almost all of the students’ classes had been suspended. Most of the classrooms in the complex were used as exam rooms.
The exam had only just started twenty minutes ago, and the entire complex was very quiet.
Shen Li followed Shen Zhijin down the stairs. As they walked, she asked,”Dad, why did you suddenly come here today?”
Shen Zhijin said, “To pick you up.”
Of course, he had also wanted to observe her take the examination.
Actually, this was not the first time he had watched her take an examination. However, it was still different to observe from outside the examination hall as compared to the inside of the examination hall.
Shen Li deliberately asked, “Then when you looked at my paper just now, what did you think of my answer?”
Shen Zhijin smiled.
Even though she knew the answer, she still asked him.
“It was well written.”
Shen Li’s eyes curved as she smiled.
“I think so too.”
Shen Zhijin’s car was parked downstairs.
Because she was only going back for a day this time, Shen Li did not bring much.
She got into the passenger seat, fastened her seatbelt, and took out her phone to send a message to Liang Su, saying that she and Shen Zhijin would be there soon.
Gu Tingfeng was not in the Capital today, so Liang Su and Gu Siyang would be with them.
Gu Siqi and Gu Sicheng had sent several messages to her.
[ Cousin! Have you finished your exam? ]
[ Cousin! Have you set off with Fourth Uncle yet? ]
[ Cousin! Be sure to let us know when you arrive! ]
The excitement of the two brothers could be felt through the screen.
Shen Li replied to them.
[ I’ve finished with my exam. I’ll be going back with my first aunt and the others later. ]
As soon as this message was sent, the brothers made a video call.
Shen Li answered the call, and two handsome and cute little faces squeezed together immediately appeared in the camera.
“Happy Birthday, Cousin!”
“Cousin! I’ve prepared a birthday present for you!”
“And me! Mine is even cooler! You’ll definitely like it!”
Without giving Shen Li a chance to speak, the brothers chatted excitedly.
Shen Li could not help but laugh.
“Thank you, Siqi, Sicheng. I’m sure to like anything you give me, but I’m just going back to celebrate my birthday. There’s no need to go through so much trouble.”
Being able to celebrate this birthday together was already the best present for her.
“It’s no trouble at all!”
Gu Sicheng’s eyes sparkled.
“Brother and I are only giving small gifts!”
“Siqi, Sicheng, are you guys talking to Ah Li?”
Gu Tingchuan’s voice suddenly came from out of the camera frame.
The two brothers nodded in unison.
Gu Tingchuan continued.
“Ah Li is right. This time, it’s mainly for the whole family to have a meal together. The rest doesn’t matter.”
Immediately after, Gu Tingyun’s gentle and smiling voice came from the side.
“Exactly. Ah Li still has other exams coming up. She’s quite busy. This time, let’s just have a simple celebration and just be happy.”
