Chapter 464 - Acceptance Letter
Ning Li sent out the contract. Half an hour later, she received a phone call from Gu Siyang.
His tone was incredulous.
“Ning Li, are you serious about changing that contract in that way?”
Ning Li had long expected his reaction. She replied with an “Mmm”.
Gu Siyang’s heart ached.
“Why don’t we… discuss it again?”
Ning Li said bluntly.
“If you don’t think it’s suitable, you can choose not to sign it as well.”
Gu Siyang, “…”
He gritted his teeth.
“I’ll sign it!”
He had finally managed to get Ning Li to agree. If all his efforts were to go down the drain at this moment, he really would not be able to accept it!
Ning Li smiled slightly.
“Happy working together, Young Master Gu.”
In the blink of an eye, Friday had arrived.
Ning Li received the admission letter from Xijing University.
The Astronomy Department from the Institute of Physics.
Included with the letter, was also an introduction manual for the Astronomy Department from the Institute of Physics.
It was a very special gift because all the pictures printed on the introduction manual had been hand-drawn.
They included the teaching building of the Astronomy Department, the Internal Observatory of Xijing University, the only domestic astronomical telescope in the country, and so on.
The strokes were exquisite, and the colors were gentle.
It was a little like a cartoon book.
It could be seen that the person who had drawn these pictures had very deep drawing skills.
It was just that on this page, he had not focused on showing off his skills. Instead, there was sincerity and joy everywhere.
The last page was a nebula map.
Ning Li flipped through it a few times and felt that she liked it very much.
In her previous life, she had not entered the Astronomy Department of Xijing University, so she had not known that their admission notice would include a small gift like this.
When Lu Huaiyu returned, he saw Ning Li curled up on the sofa, flipping through the manual with a familiar admission notice in front of her.
He walked over.
Ning Li heard the voice and turned around.
Lu Huaiyu had gone for a rare meeting at HG today.
He was about to return to the Capital, so the affairs here were basically being handed over to his subordinates to handle.
“Is this the acceptance letter?”
Lu Huaiyu came to her side and bent down to pick up the acceptance letter.
He smiled and gently tapped her forehead with his finger.
“Ah Li is really amazing.”
Back then, when he had received the admission letter from Xijing University, he had not even taken a second look at it.
Now that he saw Ning Li’s, he looked at it very carefully and seriously.
Ning Li rubbed her forehead.
The place that he had touched felt tingly.
Lu Huaiyu saw the booklet in her hand and raised his eyebrows.
“What is this? Do you like it that much?”
When he had come over earlier, he had noticed that she had been engrossed in reading it.
Ning Li handed it over.
“It’s an introduction manual for the Astronomy Department. It should be a specially made drawing book. It’s quite interesting.”
Lu Huaiyu took it and flipped through it a few times.
“Yes. When some of the major departments in Xijing send out the admission notice, they will also give a specially prepared small gift. However, this one from the astronomy department is indeed more special.”
Ning Li asked curiously, “Then, Second Brother, what did you receive at that time?”
Lu Huaiyu had studied finance at Xijing University.
Lu Huaiyu thought for a moment.
“I heard that it was a paper lantern, right? But I didn’t receive one.”
Lu Huaiyu paused.
“That year, before I entered the university, I had shorted a gaming company. Later, I found out that the Dean was a major shareholder of that company.”
Ning Li, “…”
Even so, Xijing University still allowed him to enter the university. How tolerant.
Lu Huaiyu looked at her, raised his eyebrows, and said with a low laugh, “Junior Sister, welcome.”
On Saturday, Ning Li had arranged with Lin Fengmian to return to Lincheng.
Cheng Xiyue had said that he was going to Lincheng on a business trip, so he had conveniently gone with them.
In the car, Cheng Xiyue asked, “Younger Sister Ning Li, when will you guys enter school?”
“Then, there’s still more than a month left. Have you thought about where you’d like to go to have some fun first?”
Ning Li thought for a moment and said, “I’ll be accompanying Teacher Yu to make a trip to Hong Kong City in August.”
Cheng Xiyue was stunned for a moment, before he recalled something.
Ning Li nodded.
This would be happening at the beginning of August. After she sent the admission notice for him to see yesterday, he had mentioned this matter, saying that Gu Tinglan had already sent the invitation to him.
This was something that had been agreed upon previously. Now that the time had come, there was naturally no reason to reject.
She knew that Yu Pingchuan really wanted to go, and it had also been quite a long time since she had properly accompanied him. This time, he had been invited to Hong Kong City to watch the horse races. It was a pretty good opportunity.
Cheng Xiyue subconsciously glanced at Lu Huaiyu who was sitting in the passenger seat. His posture was lazy and his expression was calm, as if he was not very bothered.
He could not help but be happy and deliberately asked, “That’s pretty good. The horse races in Hong Kong City are always held in a very grand manner. If sister Ning Li is interested, you can still bet on horses when you go there. Just treat it as a game.”
Betting on horses was legal in Hong Kong City. Every time a horse race was held, it would attract a large group of people from home and abroad to swarm over.
It was very lively.
Ning Li was not interested in this, but Yu Pingchuan liked it.
Hence, she nodded.
“It depends on the situation.”
Lu Huaiyu closed his eyes lightly, as if he was preparing to take a nap.
Cheng Xiyue secretly snorted.
He did not believe that this man could really sit still.
At noon, the three of them arrived in Lincheng.
Cheng Xiyue parked the car on the street outside the building, and they all went upstairs together.
Ning Li had brought a suitcase.
Actually, there wasn’t much left here, but because she would be going to Beijing to study soon, she packed up some of the odds and ends here again.
Cheng Xiyue simply ordered some takeaway food.
Only when they were almost done eating did Cheng Xiyue look at the time.
“Sister Ning Li, shall we set off now?”
He knew that Ning Li would be going to her grandmother’s cemetery today.
Ning Li said, “Wait first. I have a friend who is about to arrive. He’ll be going with us.”
This time, it was Cheng Xiyue’s turn to be surprised.
He was very well-acquainted with Ning Li’s background. All along, she had always relied on her grandmother.
Other relatives and the like had practically cut off all contact with them.
What kind of friend would be going to go and visit her grandmother with Ning Li?
Ning Li nodded and was just about to open her mouth when she heard a knock on the door.
She said, “That should be him.”
Saying that, she was about to go over and open the door.
Instead, Lu Huaiyu poured her a cup of warm water.
“Drink this. I’ll go and open the door.”
Following that, he strode out with his long legs and walked towards the door.
Cheng Xiyue was laughing uncontrollably on the chair.
If this had been in the past, how could Second Master Lu have behaved so condescendingly?
Now, he was really obsessed with Sister Ning Li.
Lu Huaiyu came to the door.
The door opened.
A thin and tall youth stood outside the door.
It was midsummer now, but he was wearing a loose black casual jacket, sports pants of the same color, a baseball cap on his head, and a mask.
His entire person was covered up tightly.
Even so, when he looked up, his light brown, glass-like eyes still could not hide his beauty.
There was a mole at the corner of his left eye, clean and flirtatious.
Lu Huaiyu raised his eyebrows.
“Who are you looking for?”
