Chapter 456: Return to Lincheng Together

Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation

On July 3rd, the M Province College Entrance Examination Voluntary Registration system was opened.

It was evening.

Ning Li sat on the sofa in the living room, opened the web page, and logged into the web address.

The sound of footsteps came from the stairs. It was Lu Huaiyu coming downstairs.

Ning Li turned around.

“Second Brother, you’re awake?”

Lu Huaiyu walked over with his long legs.

Ning Li looked at the time and said, “Second Brother, your afternoon naps seem to be getting shorter and shorter recently.”

Previously, Lu Huaiyu would nap for about three hours in the afternoon.

During this period of time, it had gradually become two hours.

Today, it had only been one hour and forty minutes.

Lu Huaiyu smiled in reply.

He walked behind Ning Li and glanced at her computer.

“You want to go through the voluntary application?”

Ning Li nodded.

She had already communicated with Lu Huaiyu about this matter, so he was clear about the major that she had chosen.

Lu Huaiyu said, “Only this one?”

Ning Li replied with a “Hmm”.

She had mentioned this matter to Zhu Jingyuan while they had been at the Winter Camp. Thus, after the results had come out, the dean of the Astronomy Department of the University of Xijing’s Institute of Physics had personally called her.

This matter had been settled just like that.

Lu Huaiyu smiled.

“Alright.”

Since that was what she liked, he would let her go.

After Ning Li had filled out the form and confirmed that there were no problems, she pressed submit.

Just then, the phone that she had placed next to her lit up.

She glanced at it. It was actually Gu Tinglan’s phone call.

Lu Huaiyu swept an indifferent glance over Gu Tinglan’s name.

Ning Li picked up her phone.

Thus far, they had not had much contact with each other. Yet, for some reason, he was suddenly calling today.

“Doctor Gu?”

Gu Tinglan’s gentle and smiling voice came from the phone.

“Ning Li.”

Lu Huaiyu lounged on the sofa next to her.

Ning Li asked, “Doctor Gu, is there anything you need from me?”

Gu Tinglan smiled and said, “Nothing much. I just remembered that you should have completed your voluntary application today, right?”

“Yes.”

“Congratulations.”

When the results had been announced earlier, Gu Tinglan had already sent her a congratulatory message.

Today’s message meant that the matter of the college entrance examination had finally been settled.

What she needed to do next was to wait for the notice.

“Thank you, Doctor Gu.”

Ning Li felt that he probably had something to ask her.

Sure enough, Gu Tinglan paused for a moment and said, “I was wondering if you would have the time to take me around Lincheng some time soon?”

Ning Li was surprised.

She had talked about this with Gu Tinglan before.

At that time, he had just returned from abroad and traveled to Lincheng, as if he was investigating something.

At that time, he had known that she was from Lincheng, so he had casually mentioned that he wanted to wait for her to have the time to show him around Lincheng.

Unexpectedly, he had waited until the end of the college entrance exam.

He must have specifically picked the time when she had finished filling out her voluntary application to extend this invitation.

“It’s not a problem.”

Ning Li said.

Since she had agreed earlier, there was no reason for her to go back on her word. Besides, it was not a big deal.

However, Ning Li did not quite understand one thing: Gu Tinglan seemed to have already been to Lincheng several times. In total, he would have stayed there for quite a long time.

Lincheng was a small city with a small plot of land and a backward economic development. Gu Tinglan had been there for so long that it would not be a problem for him to visit the whole of Lincheng.

So hearing him mention this again, Ning Li was a little puzzled.

However, this was Gu Tinglan’s private matter, so it did not seem like there was a need to delve into it.

Hearing this, Lu Huaiyu bent over and picked up the glass of water that she had placed beside her.

Ning Li glanced at him. She wanted to remind him that it was hers, but seeing that he had already brought it to his lips, she did not say anything.

“It just so happens that I have more time to spare recently.”

Gu Tinglan laughed.

“Then, how about tomorrow?”

“Tomorrow?”

Ning Li thought for a moment before replying.

“Sure.”

Yunzhou was not far from Lincheng, and they could drive back and forth on the same day.

Although it was a bit sudden to set it for tomorrow, it did not really matter.

Lu Huaiyu drank a mouthful of water before putting down the cup.

Gu Tinglan paused for a moment. When he spoke again, there was a hint of understanding in his voice.

“I don’t know if Second Master Lu is free. If it’s convenient, I’d like to invite him to come as well.”

Ning Li looked at Lu Huaiyu.

“Second Brother, Doctor Gu asked if you would like to go to Lincheng with me tomorrow.”

Lu Huaiyu raised his eyebrows.

“Yes.”

Gu Tinglan could hear his voice clearly.

He smiled and replied.

“Then, it’s a deal.”

After hanging up the phone, Ning Li looked at Lu Huaiyu.

“Second Brother, do you know what Doctor Gu went to investigate in Lincheng?”

She was generally not curious about other people’s private matters. However, she felt that this matter was a little strange.

If she could understand the situation, it might make it more convenient to communicate.

Lu Huaiyu was silent for a moment.

“It seems that some things about his family have been going on for many years. However, the Gu family has always kept it a secret, so I’m not very clear about the specifics.”

Most of the Gu family’s businesses were abroad, while some were in Hong Kong.

In recent years, they had shifted some of their businesses back to China and started to focus on developing their businesses here.

In comparison, while the Lu family had deep roots in the Capital, the Gu family was also a top aristocratic family.

Therefore, if the Gu family wanted to keep something a secret, very few people would be able to find out about their situation.

Moreover, Lu Huaiyu was not interested in other people’s family matters.

Ning Li nodded thoughtfully.

If that was the case, then there was nothing to ask.

In her previous life, Lu Huaiyu and Gu Tinglan had had a close personal relationship.

However, in this life, the two of them had only known each other for a short time, so it was normal that Lu Huaiyu did not know.

The next morning, Gu Siyang drove a black car and stopped outside the front door of Yunding Fenghua.
