Chapter 1040: Forgotten Backpack

Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation  Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation

Wen Xiao inexplicably felt as if the hot July day had suddenly become colder.

What she just said…

Shen Li had suffered so much at the hands of the other party, how could she just let it go?

She had been paying the nine-figure debt to the other party, and it had still not been paid off until now.

No one could possibly let this matter pass easily, let alone this little ancestor.

“It’s no wonder you’re so concerned about this… but, he shouldn’t know that you’re you.”

Wen Xiao touched his chin.

“Moreover, isn’t the information of the SSS members of the Horse Racing Association very confidential? I remember that you mentioned previously that even you don’t have the authority to thoroughly investigate the other party’s background.”

If that were the case, even if Shen Li was fully in charge of the Horse Racing Association, she would probably still not be able to figure out the other party’s identity.

As for the other party…

“Moreover, isn’t your identity well hidden?”

Ever since her trip to Leland, she had been exceptionally cautious in this aspect.

Shen Li looked at the track. A white race car had successfully overtaken the red race car that was in front of it just as it was crossing the S-bend!

She said calmly, “I didn’t expect to find out his true identity in the first place.

“No matter what, I just have to beat him at least once.”

She said this lightly, but Wen Xiao understood that her anger had not subsided regarding that incident and that person.

This was not as simple as being cheated out of a large sum of money. Other than that, there was another important point: Shen Li was actually very proud.

She had been certain that she would win. However, in the end, she had been crushed by the other party and easily defeated.

It had not been the first time.

How could she not hold a grudge?

She just wanted to get back at him.

Wen Xiao took his cigarette case out. “Alright.”

The current her was much smarter and more cautious than she had been three years ago. If they really met again, she might actually have a chance of winning.

Of course, he still felt that the probability was relatively small.

But of course, he did not dare to say this in front of this little ancestor.

Just then, Ji Shu was the first to cross the finish line!

The electronic screen displayed his results– he had broken the record again.

Wen Xiao was chewing on his cigarette. Thinking about how Shen Li was still beside him, he did not smoke. Instead, he narrowed his eyes as he looked at the results.

Mm, it was alright.

Today, he could use fewer words.

When the last car finished the test, everyone spotted Shen Li and came over to greet her.

Everyone felt that it was a pity that Shen Li had come over today just to pick up her things and not to train.

After all, there were not many opportunities to see Shen Li on the field.

Wen Xiao raised his chin at them. “Alright, everyone can move freely for now.”

It was rare for him to be so “amiable”, so everyone forgot about everything else and cheered in succession.

“Got it, Coach!”

Wen Xiao turned around and raised his head to look at Shen Li.

“Let’s go.”

Wen Xiao had his own private residence at the LY training base. Other than that, he also had his own special office and lounge.

LY was indeed very generous when it came to money.

Especially at the level that Wen Xiao was at, other people would not even have the chance to spend this kind of money.

Shen Li followed Wen Xiao to his office.

As soon as she entered, she saw several express delivery boxes piled up in the corner of the room.

“The one at the top is yours.”

Wen Xiao raised his finger and pointed, before pulling out a chair to sit down.

The rest belonged to him, but he could not be bothered to open them, so he had just left them there.

Shen Li walked over and lifted the express delivery box at the top.

The box was quite big, but it was not very heavy.

She placed the box on the small table next to her and sat down on the sofa. She took a small pair of scissors from the side to open the box.

“I remember that after the accident at Yanhui Hill, I threw away the things that should have been thrown away at the auto repair factory, and took away the things that should have been taken away. Why are there still some things left?”

Shen Li asked as she opened the box.

It was also because of that accident that Grandma had found out that she was competing in underground racing and had been very angry.

It was the first time that the old lady, who had never been able to bear saying a harsh word to her, had been so strict with her.

She had been furious because she had been really afraid.

Back then, Ning Haizhou had gotten into an accident while he had been under the influence of alcohol. She had never thought that Shen Li would be so daring as to be involved in underground racing.

The old lady had not understood why, but she knew how dangerous it was. If Shen Li was not careful, something might happen to her.

Especially at that time, there was indeed a car accident at Yanhui Hill.

Shen Li had lowered her head and admitted her mistake. She had promised repeatedly that she would not do it again. Only then had she finally let go of her anger.

At that time, she had been really determined to quit this industry.

She had gone to Wen Xiao’s auto repair shop to pack up her things. Of course, she did not have many things to begin with anyway.

From then on, other than occasionally going there to repair cars, she had never gone back on the track again.

Until–

She had been reborn.

After dying once, she had finally realized what she should do and what she should not do.

At that time, she had thought that if her grandmother had known what she would experience later on, she would understand the decision she had made.

She had gone back onto the track again, but this time at Xiaosong Hill.

“When I was preparing to come to the Capital to attend university, I also took inventory of everything at home. I didn’t seem to be missing anything,” Shen Li said.

Therefore, when Wen Xiao had told her that she still had some things left at the auto repair shop, she was quite surprised.

She really could not remember what it was.

Wen Xiao said casually, “There are a few of the books that you read before and a small telescope. Oh, right, and your schoolbag.”

By then, Shen Li had already opened the box.

Hearing Wen Xiao’s words, she was momentarily stunned. Then, one by one, she took out the things that were inside.

First, there were a few books. Two of them were about auto repair, one was about astrophysics, and the other was a self-help book to learn German.

These books were all bought by Wen Xiao.

At that time, she had gone to the auto repair shop every day. Wen Xiao had been extremely annoyed and felt that it was troublesome. However, the little girl’s background was so pitiful that he really could not bear to do chase her away.

It was not until one day, when an employee of the garage had made a mistake while repairing his car and it had been pointed out by Shen Li, that he realized that something was wrong.

After that, he had officially chatted with Shen Li once. He had then found out that Shen Li was extraordinarily smart in this aspect. After thinking about it, he had decided to keep her around and tossed two books to her so that she could read them first.

Shen Li had finished flipping through the two books in a day.

And from then on, she had never flipped through them again.

At this point, Wen Xiao had realized that something was not right. Things were already developing in an uncontrollable direction.

Unfortunately, it was already too late.

That German self-help book had been bought by Shen Li when he had accidentally seen her looking at the Chinese and German versions of the book.

“I bought that astrophysics book for you after you lost it. But you said you didn’t need it, so you didn’t give it away and kept it with me. Anyway, it’s all packed up this time. You can take it with you.”

Shen Li paused and nodded. “Thank you, Uncle Wen.”

As she spoke, she put the book down.

There was one last thing in the alley.

A black backpack.

She was stunned.

Wen Xiao said, “This was left in the car after the accident at Yanhui Hill. At that time, all the things in the factory were tidied up and this backpack had been buried under other things in the warehouse. I only discovered it when I was tidying up some time ago.”
