Many people came to the stands. Judging from their clothes, they were not freshmen.
Most of the boys were sitting together as they looked over.
When they noticed Ning Li raising her head, the originally restless crowd suddenly quieted down for a moment.
Then, there was a tacit sigh.
A beautiful girl would naturally attract the attention and admiration of the opposite sex easily.
However, if she was too beautiful, this attention and admiration would also have an added sense of caution and shyness.
Ning Li calmly withdrew her gaze and continued walking forward.
The boys in the stands seemed to come back to their senses. Perhaps it was because Ning Li had walked closer, but their voices were now much lower and more restrained than before.
“… She’s really beautiful… The newly-promoted campus Belle didn’t run away, did she?”
“What a stroke of luck for those guys at the Institute of Physics!”
“This junior is called Ning Li, right? It seems that she’s the top scorer in science in M Province. This is too awesome…”
“She looks a little cold and aloof. Does anyone want to ask if this junior has a boyfriend?”
“To be honest, I’ve never wanted to participate in military training so much before. Sigh! I was born at the wrong time!”
All kinds of discussions could be heard.
Many of the freshmen in the field had obviously noticed Ning Li’s arrival and everyone had looked over.
Yao Mingjia frowned slightly and turned back to take a look. She saw that Ning Li’s expression was calm and indifferent, as if she did not care about the commotion at all.
She felt more and more uncomfortable.
In high school, she had been considered as the school belle and had long been used to being surrounded by admirers.
She thought that when she came to the institute, it would be the same as before, or even more so.
After all, everyone knew that there was an imbalance in the number of genders at the institute. It was already good enough to have a girl, let alone a good-looking one.
However, she had not expected that on the first day of school, she would find out that an exceptionally beautiful freshman had come to the institute and her name was Ning Li.
These past two days, wherever she walked, she would hear someone mention this name.
Someone had secretly taken a photo of Ning Li on the day she had reported in and posted it in the school forum. The post had even topped all other posts.
Within a short period of time, there were already over five thousand comments.
All of them were talking about her.
Someone even initiated a competition to vote for the school belle. Ning Li had obtained a crushing victory with an astonishing number of votes.
Now, the title of Xijing University’s school belle had firmly landed on her head.
Therefore, although Ning Li had been keeping a low profile since the start of school, she had already become popular in the school.
The reactions of these boys could not be any more direct.
The sound of a gathering of the students came from not far away. Yao Mingjia gathered her thoughts and walked over.
The students of the entire academy had gathered. At a glance, almost all of them were tall and straight boys.
Only the small group in front of them were girls.
Ning Li walked over, and the originally noisy crowd became much quieter.
Almost all of their gazes fell on her.
The boys from the other faculties were also looking over.
Just then, exclamations of joy could be heard from the girls in the stands not far away.
Ning Li looked over in that direction.
A familiar slim and straight figure was walking behind a group of boys, looking particularly conspicuous.
It was obvious that those girls’ attention were focused on him.
Compared to the other freshmen who were restless and new, Pei Song’s expression was still cold, as if everything around him had nothing to do with him.
Suddenly, as if he sensed something, he stopped in his tracks and looked in Ning Li’s direction.
This was the first time the two of them had seen each other since the dinner to celebrate the end of the college entrance examination.
Pei Song gave her a slight nod.
Ning Li nodded as well.
Pei Song quickly withdrew his gaze and walked forward.
It seemed to be like a normal greeting.
However, both of them were the focus of attention. This small interaction had immediately attracted the attention of countless people.
Yao Mingjia’s gaze lingered on Pei Song’s back for a few seconds before she turned back to look at Ning Li.
“That seems to be the new student at the Law School this year, Pei Song. Ning Li, do you… know each other?”
There was still something she had not said.
Pei Song had been voted as the new school heartthrob this year.
Otherwise, there would not have been so many girls crowding around here to watch.
Ning Li said, “High school classmate.”
When she said this, everyone was stunned.
Xue Langlang let out a soft “Ah”.
“One of the top scorers in M Province’s College Entrance Examination for science subjects and the second-place winner in the National Physics Competition… Is it that Pei Song?”
Ning Li was already used to her odd way of remembering people, so she nodded.
Xue Langlang nodded in realization.
“Oh right, he’s also from Yunzhou Second High School, just like you!”
With that said, everyone understood.
“I remember now, it was the two of them. They won first and second place respectively, in the last national competition… Then, in the end, they both gave up the right to sign a contract. I didn’t expect Pei Song to choose to go to the Law Faculty?”
“He’s so handsome!”
“The two study gods are actually classmates, and both of them are so good-looking. Are you kidding me?”
Yao Mingjia rolled her eyes and asked with a smile, “Ning Li… Could it be that Pei Song is your boyfriend?”
As soon as she said this, everyone fell silent. They all looked over, their faces full of curiosity and eagerness to gossip.
Pei Song looked very cold and aloof, but he had taken the initiative to greet Ning Li. Whichever way they looked at it, it seemed a little…
Ning Li frowned slightly, and her voice was slightly cold.
Hearing this answer, almost everyone secretly breathed a sigh of relief.
Just then, a group of instructors in military uniforms that were neatly lined up, walked in from the entrance of the field.
These were all elites who had been transferred from the army. Even at a distance, everyone could still feel the cold and sharp aura they exuded.
All the students’ gazes could not help but be drawn over.
Each faculty had two instructors that had been assigned to lead the team.
On the side of the Institute of Physics, there were two extremely young military officers who seemed to be recent graduates of the military school.
One was slender, while the other was strong.
The slimmer one had a babyface while the strong one had a more angular face, but they both seemed to have a good temper.
That was… until they gave the first order: the standing practice posture.
The whole institute was to stand for an hour.
