Chapter 1070 - Second Brother Promised, Don’t Forget
The two of them walked out of the milk tea shop.
Shen Zhijin looked at Shen Li.
“Tangtang, what time is your flight tomorrow?”
“10 am,” Shen Li said.
There were still a few days before the official day of the race, but LY would be there tomorrow so that the team members would have enough time to rest and get used to the environment there as soon as possible.
This time, the five official drivers, including Shen Li, as well as the five substitutes, as well as Wen Xiao, Gu Siyang, Yang Tao, and several other LY higher-ups would be heading to Leland together.
LY was rich and powerful, so they directly chartered a plane to head there.
As for Shen Li’s race car, it had already been sent to Leland by a special plane this afternoon, and they were only waiting for them to arrive the next day.
Shen Zhijin nodded. He recalled the two boys who had looked at Shen Li with fervent admiration in the milk tea shop just now. After thinking for a moment, he said,”Tangtang, just relax in this competition. Don’t be nervous.”
He knew that countless people had high hopes for LY and Shen Li. Even if they did not say it, their eyes were full of expectation and desire.
They all hoped that Shen Li could lead LY to get the best result.
Even though they knew how difficult it was, since it was a competition, how could they not have dreams of winning?
He knew that Shen Li was very talented and capable in this aspect. He had also been present at the national rally. He knew that Shen Li’s standards were extremely high.
However, before everything else, she was the most important and ranked first.
In his eyes, no matter how much fame and glory there was, it was not as important as her safety and happiness.
Shen Li inserted the straw into the milk tea and took a sip. The sweet smell of peaches filled the air.
Then, she looked at Shen Zhijin.
He was worried about her, but from the beginning to the end, he had never said that she should give up on the competition.
He respected her choice, and under this premise, he did his best to protect her.
How could she not understand?
She smiled with her eyes curved.
“Thank you, Dad. I understand.”
The next morning, Shen Li got up and started packing.
She did not bring much. She only brought a few sets of clothes, shoes, and some other daily necessities.
Lastly, she put her laptop into her suitcase and locked it.
Shen Zhijin had just finished breakfast with her when his phone rang.
She glanced at it and answered it.
“Ah Li, I’m here.”
“Okay, I’ll be right down.”
As Shen Li spoke, she hung up.
Shen Zhijin got up and helped her push her suitcase.
“I’ll send you down.”
“Thank you, Dad.”
The two of them exited the elevator and walked out of the lobby. They saw that the black Bentley was already parked downstairs.
Seeing Shen Li and Shen Zhijin come out, Lu Huaiyu came out of the car.
“Teacher Shen, Ah Li.”
This time, Shen Li would be going to Leland ahead of schedule and he would be accompanying her the entire time.
Shen Zhijin declined his help politely. He put Shen Li’s suitcase into the trunk and gave her a reminder.
“Remember to stay safe after you land. Call me if anything happens.”
Shen Li obediently nodded.
“Yes, I’ll be with everyone else. You don’t have to worry.”
Lu Huaiyu smiled.
“Teacher Shen, I’ll take good care of Ah Li.”
Shen Zhijin gave him an indifferent look without saying anything. He patted Shen Li’s head again.
“I’ll be there in two days.”
Shen Li nodded.
After saying that, she got into the car with Lu Huaiyu and waved goodbye to Shen Zhijin through the window.
The car slowly drove away and headed in the direction of the CapitalAirport.
The other team members left the LY base and met up with them at the airport.
An hour later, Capital Airport.
Lu Huaiyu pushed her suitcase with one hand and held her hand with the other as they headed towards the departure hall.
A familiar voice sounded.
Shen Li looked up and saw that the LY’s team had arrived and was not far ahead of her. The person who had called her was Ji Shu.
She walked over with Lu Huaiyu and greeted them one by one.
“Sister Li, you only brought such a small suitcase?”
Lu Siyu asked in surprise.
Shen Li’s gaze swept over them and found that they were all carrying large suitcases as well as small bags.
“… There’ll only be one day of competition, and the days for training won’t exceed a week. Are you guys planning to move there?”
“Sister Li, that’s not what we said! This is our first time going to Leland, and it’s a rare opportunity. Of course, we have to have fun there!”
The others nodded in agreement.
They were all young men in their early twenties, and this time, they would be representing China in their participation in the World Championship. They were all extremely excited.
Ron put his hand on Lu Siyu’s shoulder and teased.
“Sister Li, they haven’t even reached Leland yet. However, it seems like their hearts have already been playing a few rounds over there.”
Lu Siyu flung his arm away contemptuously.
“Don’t talk like you’re different!”
Half a year had already passed since Ron’s car accident. At that time, his injuries had been quite serious, but fortunately, he had been treated in time and the surgery had been very successful.
In addition, his physical fitness was good, and he recovered well after the surgery. After some training, he could now go on the field.
In the previous few training sessions, his results had been second only to Shen Li and Ji Shu.
So he was also one of the five starting players of Ly this time.
Shen Li had originally intended to give up the position of captain, but Ron had adamantly refused. In the end, he had chosen to compromise. Shen Li remained as the captain while Ron was the vice-captain.
Yang Tao waved at them.
“Alright, it’s about time. We can go now.”
Everyone followed Yang Tao in a lively manner.
However, after a few steps, someone realized that something was wrong.
“… Second Master Lu, you are…”
LY had chartered a business jet this time, so they had to take the special passageway.
It was understandable that Lu Huaiyu had sent Shen Li here, but now… why was he coming along with Shen Li?
Lu Huaiyu raised his eyebrows slightly.
“I’m going to Leland with Ah Li.”
This was what he had promised earlier. Naturally, now that he finally had the opportunity, he would not go back on his word.
Only then did everyone understand, but–
“But, Second Master Lu, if you’re going to Leland too, why didn’t you bring anything?”
He only had Shen Li’s suitcase in his hand.
Before Lu Huaiyu could speak, Gu Siyang, who was standing at the side, laughed and said, “You don’t have to worry about Second Master Lu about this matter! He has been to Leland too many times!”
Lu Huaiyu had stayed in the Fino Laboratory in Bai City for a year. During that year, he had often gone to Leland and even had his own property there. There was no need for him to bring anything else.
Everyone choked for a moment.
Very good. Being rich sure was great.
“So this time, Sister Li has Second Master Lu to accompany her. Won’t she have a good time in Leland then?” Everyone jeered.
Wen Xiao, who was walking in front, heard this and his temples throbbed. Finally, he could not help but turn his head and say, “What are you playing at? Put your hearts away first. We’ll talk after the competition is over!”
They were still trying to encourage this little ancestor!
Shen Li tilted her head and looked at the man beside her. Her little finger gently stroked his palm. Her brows and eyes curved as she said softly,”Second Brother promised to take me to have fun before. Don’t forget.”
