Chapter 409 - Quite a Lot of People Chase After You
Lu Huaiyu had only just woken up. He was leaning against the headboard of the bed, his quilt having slipped off.
His eyes were closed, but when he heard her sweet and soft voice, he paused and slowly opened his eyes.
After a moment of silence, he smiled.
“Is that so?”
Ning Li’s grip on the phone tightened slightly.
Lu Huaiyu definitely knew what she meant.
However, calling him over for a parent-teacher meeting like this seemed…
She paused for a moment before saying,
“Yes. The form teacher said that this time, he will be talking about the college entrance exam registration process. It’s quite important.”
Geng Haifan’s exact words had been that at this parent-teacher meeting, they would be explaining the content of the college entrance examination’s registration in detail. So, make sure that all your family members, preferably the ones with the most weight in their family, come over.
But of course, she could not tell Lu Huaiyu that.
Filling in the forms for the college entrance examination was indeed a very complicated matter.
However, this did not include Ning Li.
With her results, as long as she performed as per usual, she could choose any major from any of the top universities in the country.
All she needed to do was to fill in the form according to her own wishes.
Lu Huaiyu was quiet for a while.
Ning Li subconsciously held her breath.
“Second Brother, if you’re very busy, you can still–”
“Got it,” Lu Huaiyu replied with a smile. His voice was low and languid. “It just so happens that I don’t know how to fill in the form either. I should go and listen on how to do it.”
He had been recruited by Xijing University and had not taken the college entrance exam at all.
Ning Li said softly, “Oh, thank you, Second Brother.”
Lu Huaiyu said, “I’ll be there at three tomorrow.”
Ning Li said, “Okay.”
“Senior Sister Ning Li?”
A clear and bright youth’s voice suddenly came from the side.
Ning Li looked up and saw an unfamiliar tall and thin boy standing in front of her.
When he saw Ning Li looking over, his ears turned a little red, but he seemed more excited and nervous.
Lu Huaiyu had obviously heard him too. He raised his eyebrows and asked, “Is someone is looking for you?”
Ning Li glanced at the name tag pinned to his school uniform.
He was a sophomore.
“I don’t know him,” she said.
When the boy heard her say that, he realized that he had been a bit rash to suddenly come over. He smiled and said, “Hello, Senior Sister Ning Li! I’m Zhou Cheng from First Class, sophomore year. I’ve admired you for a long time!”
Ning Li frowned slightly.
Ever since she had come to Second High, quite a number of people had confessed their feelings of admiration for her.
Most of them had given her love letters and small gifts. Only a small number of them had ever dared to confess to her in person.
However, all of them had been rejected by her.
After some time, seeing that she was still unmoved and was completely devoted to her school work, everyone had gradually calmed down.
Ning Li had not expected to bump into someone who would confess his feelings to her just when she had taken some time to make a phone call.
Most importantly, could he not see that she had not even hung up her call yet?
Ning Li’s voice was cold.
“I’m sorry, but I’m not interested in these kinds of things right now.”
As she said that, she lifted her foot to leave.
Zhou Cheng saw that she did not look very happy, he took a step forward and continued, “Senior Sister Ning Li, I’m sincere…”
Ning Li stood still, raised her eyes slightly, and glanced at him.
“Do you want me to make it clearer? I’m not interested in you.”
Zhou Cheng had probably heard a lot of rumors about her before, so he was not surprised by her rejection.
He blinked, his smile unchanged, and asked politely, “Senior Sister Ning Li, then could we discuss the possibility of you giving me a chance to pursue you?”
Ning Li said, “No.”
After saying that, she turned around and left.
“Hey… Senior Sister?”
Zhou Cheng was just about to follow her when Ning Li turned her head to stare at him quietly.
Zhou Cheng subconsciously stood still until Ning Li had moved far away, but he continued to look at her with fondness in his eyes.
Ning Li walked to another quiet path and listened to the silence on the other side of the phone. Then she asked, “Second Brother, are you still listening?”
Lu Huaiyu chuckled.
He could not have heard it more clearly.
“You seem to have quite a lot of people chasing after you in school.”
He raised his eyebrows slightly and spoke nonchalantly.
For some reason, Ning Li felt that Lu Huaiyu’s tone of voice was subtly hinting at something.
She was silent for a moment.
Did Lu Huaiyu have the nerve to talk about her?
It would be more appropriate for her to say this to him, right?
After a long while, she said, “I’m not in a puppy love relationship.”
She even had a little confidence in herself.
Lu Huaiyu acknowledged her with a “Hmm” as if he was smiling.
“I know, you’re very well behaved.”
Ning Li, “…”
She found an excuse and quickly hung up the phone.
The early spring breeze blew past her face, dispersing the heat on her face.
She put her phone away. After a long while, she walked back towards the classroom.
How would he know if she was well behaved or not?
The next day at 3 pm, the class meeting for the senior year was held.
Before it was time, groups of parents entered the campus one after another and walked towards the senior year teaching building.
With the parents having a parent-teacher meeting here, the students were finally free.
“Ning Li! Are you going to the field? Today is the last day of the sports meet!”
He Xiaochen walked over.
Ning Li shook her head and looked downstairs, but she did not see Lu Huaiyu.
Seeing her like this, He Xiaochen asked, “Is your Second Brother attending the parent-teacher meeting on your behalf today?”
Ning Li nodded.
He Xiaochen sighed dramatically.
“Sigh, what kind of peerless brother is he!”
He was so handsome, with a good figure, and most importantly, he treated Ning Li very well.
When he was with them, he didn’t put on any airs and was very considerate.
She leaned against the railing next to Ning Li, rested her chin on her hands, and let out a long sigh.
“Ning Li, what kind of woman do you think will be able to subdue your Second Brother? I stood close to him the other day and said a few words to him, and already my whole body felt like it was on the verge of collapse. Who could withstand the impact of such impact? Tsk.”
Ning Li was stunned.
He Xiaochen suddenly thought of something and patted Ning Li’s shoulder in admiration.
“Fortunately, you’re also a peerless beauty! If it were someone else, who would be able to withstand looking at such a face every day?”
Ning Li had looked like this since she was young. If she looked in the mirror more often, her immunity to handsome men should be a hundred times stronger than a lowly person like her!
Ning Li, “…”
Her phone vibrated.
She took it out and took a look. It was a message from Lu Huaiyu.
[ I’m at your school now. ]
Ning Li said, “I’ll go pick Second Brother up now.”
Today was the last day of the school sports meet. The first and second-year students were still letting off steam, which caused a lot of excitement.
In addition to the parent-teacher conference held by the senior year students, the whole school was full of people.
Before Ning Li had reached the school gate, she heard a lively voice coming from the front.
“The last time he came, it was around evening time. I didn’t expect him to look even more handsome in the day!”
“I wonder if he has a girlfriend? He shouldn’t have one at such a young age, right?”
Ning Li had an inexplicable feeling of premonition in her heart.
She looked in the direction of the voice.
The figure of an elegant and tall man came into view.
Lu Huaiyu was wearing a white shirt today. The top two buttons of his collar were open, and a black suit jacket was hanging over his arm as he walked towards them.
