She thought about it carefully for a while and could basically confirm that this was indeed the same person.
It was really strange…
Ning Li looked at the manga, feeling puzzled.
She had been curious before about the identity of the artist for such a hand-drawn booklet that could be specially made and given as a small gift to every freshman admitted to the Department of Astronomy at Xijing University.
She had considered that perhaps it had been a teacher or student of the Department of Astronomy, or perhaps it was a specially commissioned artist.
However, she had not expected that it seemed… to have some kind of subtle connection with Shen Zhijin?
This email receipt had clearly been personally set up by someone very close to him, and this artwork had also come from that person.
That’s right, Shen Zhijin was the honorary dean of the Institute of Physics at Xijing University.
Now that she thought about it, it seemed easier to understand.
Ning Li quite liked this style of this artwork. After thinking about it, she right-clicked to save it.
By then, Shen Zhijin had replied to the email.
This time, it was the revision suggestions for her thesis.
Ning Li was slightly surprised because her thesis had just been sent not long ago, yet Shen Zhijin had already finished reading it. He had even accurately pointed out a few key problems and a few mistakes.
Such efficiency was truly astonishing.
After all, he was the top physics expert in the country…
With this thought in mind, Ning Li focused her attention, opened the thesis, and began to revise it according to Shen Zhijin’s request.
By the time she was done, it was already night time.
She sent the revised version back to Shen Zhijin.
After doing all this, she rubbed her sore neck.
It was indeed rewarding to talk to an important of such a level, but at the same time, it was very taxing on one’s energy and spirit to deal with it.
Every suggestion he had made, every word he had said, had been extremely precise and efficient, without the slightest bit of exaggeration.
Even through the screen, she could still feel the invisible pressure from the other party.
She had never experienced such a feeling when she faced Xu Yin.
Her cell phone rang. She took a look and realized that it was He Xiaochen calling.
She picked up the call.
He Xiaochen’s excited voice came through the receiver.
“Ning Li! I’m in the Capital!”
Ning Li smiled.
“Is that so?”
“Yeah! My parents came with me!”
It was the end of August, and there were only a few days left until the start of school at Xijing University.
Many students had already arrived in the Capital ahead of time to familiarize themselves with the environment and do some sightseeing.
He Xiaochen was one of them.
“We’re planning to walk around the Capital for the next few days. My dad has already planned the schedule.”
He Xiaochen had always wanted to come to the Capital to have fun, but she had never had the chance before.
Now that she had been admitted to Xijing University, she naturally had to take advantage of this opportunity to have a good time.
“Ning Li, have you looked around already?”
He Xiaochen knew that Ning Li had already arrived in the Capital in early August.
“More or less.”
“Ah–” He Xiaochen felt a little regretful. “Then let’s go together when school starts?”
Ning Li was now living at Shuiyuan Shijia, and almost all of her belongings had been moved here.
It was about half an hour’s drive from Xijing, so it was still quite convenient to go back and forth.
He Xiaochen hung up the phone with satisfaction after getting her answer.
Ning Li looked at her email again and received a reply from Shen Zhijin.
The corners of her lips curled up.
The person who had set up this reply… was quite interesting.
Over the next few days, Ning Li spent most of her time on that thesis.
Shen Zhijin had made two overall revisions to her thesis. After she had submitted it for the third time, she finally received a positive reply from him.
Ning Li listened to his advice and submitted it directly to Universe.
In the end, she even sent a thank-you letter to Shen Zhijin.
In the blink of an eye, it was September and the day to report themselves to Xijing University had arrived.
In order to avoid trouble, Ning Li had rejected everyone’s offer to send her to school. Instead, she grabbed a suitcase and took a taxi to Xijing University.
Every year, the school was very lively during the start of the school year.
As soon as she reached the school gate, Ning Li saw many private cars parked outside. Countless parents were accompanying their children to school.
People were coming and going, bustling with activity.
An excited voice was heard.
Ning Li turned around and saw He Xiaochen standing not far away, waving at her.
“You’re here so early?”
Ning Li walked over.
He Xiaochen looked at her with starry eyes.
“It’s not that early. I only just arrived not too long ago!”
She had not seen this stunning face in such a long time!
“Ning Li, why do I feel that you’re getting more and more beautiful? Wow!”
Her heart felt like melting!
Ning Li smiled and looked left and right.
“Where are your parents?”
He Xiaochen pointed inside the school when she heard that and nonchalantly said, “Oh, my parents? They’ve already gone in. They said that because it’s their first time coming to Xijing University, they wanted to go in to take a good look around. They want to remember the experience.”
As she said that, she patted her backpack.
“It’s fine! My acceptance letter and ID are here. I can go report myself!”
Ning Li, “…”
It seemed that He Xiaochen often said that she was an accident of her parents, which made a lot of sense…
“Ning Li, I’ve just done some research. The Foreign Language Department and the Institute of Physics are a little far away from each other!”
As He Xiaochen said that, she handed over a map.
Ning Li took a look.
Xijing University was the top university in the country. It had a long history and a deep foundation. Its campus occupied a large area.
There were a total of four gates in the north, south, east, and west. They had set up different reporting points for different departments.
They were now at the North Gate, Ning Li’s Institute of Physics was at the East Gate, while He Xiaochen’s Foreign Languages Department was at the West Gate.
No matter which side they went to, the other was indeed quite far away.
Ning Li said, “Then let’s split up to report in.”
He Xiaochen was reluctant to part.
“Then, shall we have lunch together?”
Ning Li nodded.
The two of them walked into the school together.
Soon, a boy took the initiative to welcome them and eagerly asked, “Junior, which department are you from? Do you need any help?”
As he spoke, his gaze involuntarily fell on Ning Li’s face, unable to hide his astonishment.
Earlier, when he had looked from afar, he had thought that both these two girls were good-looking.
When he had gotten closer, he had found that they were indeed so.
One was lively and cute, while the other was elegant and clean.
The latter was especially beautiful. Her skin was delicate and clear, and her facial features were exquisite and perfect. She was tall and slender.
She really was very beautiful and eye-catching.
Ning Li said calmly, “Thank you, but there’s no need.”
As she spoke, she looked at He Xiaochen.
“I’ll see you at noon then.”
He Xiaochen nodded repeatedly.
After saying that, the two of them separated and walked in their respective directions.
The male student was left feeling a little awkward.
He scratched his head.
There were others who came over to jeer.
“Yo, are all the juniors this year so cold and aloof?”
The boy clicked his tongue.
“With her looks, she does indeed have the capital though… It looks like the school belle will be replaced.”
Staring at the view of her back, he ground his teeth.
“I wonder which department has gotten such a big advantage.”
