His gentle and deep voice echoed in the empty room, which was especially quiet.
Shen Zhijin changed his shoes at the entrance and walked into the living room.
The flowers in the white porcelain vase there were already showing faint signs of wilting.
He changed the water and put the newly bought white camellias into it.
Looking at the bouquet of flowers, he said, “Today, I was quite busy at school and went to the shop late. The florist said that the red ones were sold out and only the white ones were left. Next time, I’ll leave work early and buy you the red ones, okay?”
No one answered and it was quiet.
As he spoke, he took the peaches to the kitchen and carefully washed them before placing them on the dining table.
After tidying everything up, he took his computer out.
This time, he really did have a lot of things to do.
He had a few unread emails in his mailbox, a pile of data to process, and several documents to review and sign.
As he sat, his posture always remained straight.
It was just like him, he was always disciplined and reserved.
He stared at the screen for a long time, but he did not move.
It was rare for his efficiency to be so unbelievably low.
He sat quietly for a long time, but he did not make any progress on the work at hand.
He frowned slightly, and on his handsome and elegant face, there was a hint of confusion and helplessness.
After a long time, he closed the computer and lowered his eyelids.
The room was too cold and quiet. He could even hear his own breathing and heartbeat.
It was so clear that it seemed to prove that he was still alive.
He seemed to be at a loss and said in a low voice, “Yinyin, I seem to have missed you too much today.”
Ning Li’s university life officially began.
There were the 4 people in Room 306, three departments, and one computer department.
They were all departments with very few female students. By chance, they had all been assigned together.
The three people in the key department were also not in the same major.
Ning Li was in the Astronomy Department, Xue Langlang was in the Physics Department, and there was a female student named Yao Mingjia who studied Atmospheric Science.
The female student from the Computer Science Department was called Ding Yu. She was the top scorer in science in the College Entrance Examination who was from S Province. She had short hair and a tall figure. She wore simple black clothes and did not talk much.
She spent most of her time in the dormitory typing up codes or sleeping.
Yao Mingjia was from Beijing. Her family background was fairly well-off. She was beautiful and fastidious.
Even from the first day, her table had been filled with all kinds of bottles and jars, and the wardrobe was stuffed with a few of the most popular luxury brand bags.
Xue Langlang was from Province C, but she came from an academic background.
It was said that her parents were university physics professors, so she had followed in their footsteps to take up physics as well.
Of course, she did like physics, and she also participated in the physics competition. Unfortunately, she had not gotten into the finals.
However, she had always paid attention to these things, so she had recognized Ning Li right away.
Coincidentally, she and Tan Ruiqun had been in the same high school.
After listening to Tan Ruiqun talk about the Winter Camp, her idol had changed from Tan Ruiqun to Ning Li.
Now that they were actually assigned to the same dormitory, Xue Langlang was the happiest in the entire dorm room.
As new students, many girls in their respective dorm rooms would go out together to get to know each other better.
However, Ning Li’s dorm room was a little special.
Yao Mingjia did not like the food at the school, so she had followed her family out for a big meal.
Ding Yu was still wearing headphones and working on some code.
Xue Langlang was holding a physics book and reading it with great interest. From time to time, she would ask Ning Li a few questions.
As a result, dorm room 306 was exceptionally quiet.
Ning Li sat in her chair and sent a message to Wei Songzhe.
He had done well in the college entrance examination. With the help of the guaranteed quota that he had gotten from the Huaqing Cup, he had successfully entered the Xijing Grand Arts Academy.
The Xijing Grand Arts Academy was a part of Xijing University, but was on a separate campus.
[ Sister Li, let’s have a meal together if you have time! ]
Ning Li simply rejected him.
“I don’t have the time.”
Wei Songzhe was puzzled.
[ What? Sister Li, isn’t it just the beginning of school? Do you already not have any free time? Didn’t you say that it would be easier once you entered university? ]
[ Military training. ]
[ … Oh. ]
Wei Songzhe tactfully left it at that.
He had completely forgotten about military training.
Xue Langlang suddenly called out to her.
Ning Li turned her head to look.
Xue Langlang looked a little excited.
“I heard that Shen Zhijin returned to school for the school’s anniversary celebration! Someone even saw him at the Institute of Physics today!”
No one could fault her for being so excited.
The name Shen Zhijin was almost universally acknowledged as a god in the domestic physics world.
Xue Langlang liked physics, so she naturally worshipped someone so important.
Ning Li nodded.
Shen Zhijin had returned a while ago, and it was Xu Yin who had personally gone to pick him up.
In fact, Shen Zhijin’s comments on her thesis were still lying in her mailbox.
Xue Langlang propped up her chin on her hand.
“There’s a rumor that Shen Zhijin will give a speech at the school’s anniversary celebration. I really want to see him in person!”
Ning Li opened a book.
“You’ll be able to see him after the military training ends.”
Xue Langlang fell onto her bed in despair.
“Why is there such a thing as military training?!”
The military training at Xijing University would last for two weeks and would be carried out on campus. Military officers from the army had specially been invited to come and lead the activities.
Early in the morning, the freshmen gathered on the field.
Everyone had changed into their military training uniforms.
The academy had recruited a total of more than 100 people this year, and there were fewer than 30 girls in total.
The astronomy department especially, only had a total of three girls.
“These clothes are really uncomfortable to wear, and it’s too hot.”
Yao Mingjia frowned. As she walked, she applied a layer of sunscreen on her face again.
Ning Li and Xue Langlang were two steps behind and arrived at the entrance of the field.
They glanced around and Xue Langlang pointed in a certain direction.
“The house flag is over there!”
Ning Li walked over in that direction.
Suddenly, there was a commotion in the stands.
“She’s coming! It’s that one!”
“D*mn, is the real person really that beautiful?”
Ning Li stopped in her tracks and looked up.
