Chapter 522: You Are Outstanding

Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation

She was wearing a loose military training uniform, but her slender and tall figure was still visible. Her wavy long hair had been casually tied up into a bun, and a few strands of her fringe was hanging down.

The light in the shop reflected on her face, showing off her clear and white skin.

Her nose was straight, the corners of her lips were slightly pursed, and a pointed chin.

Her pair of peach blossom eyes were especially clear and beautiful.

Shen Zhijin was completely stunned.

In an instant, countless images seemed to flow through his mind, but it also seemed to remain a blank.

It was as if he had fallen into a vacuum. All the air seemed to have been sucked away, and even his breathing seemed to have become a luxury.

Every color was difficult to distinguish, and in the end, it became a chaos of black and white that became a blurred mass.

Ning Li looked at the man who had suddenly appeared in front of her with some surprise.

He looked to be in his thirties, handsome and elegant, svelte and refined.

Furthermore, he looked somewhat familiar.

She searched her mind for a moment and finally found a name.

“… Teacher Shen?”

The young lady’s clear and melodious voice sounded. She easily shattered the thin barrier surrounding him into pieces.

The abundant oxygen rushed in and filled the empty space. For some reason, it became even more chaotic.

Shen Zhijin regained his rationality and his soul fell to the ground.

He looked at Ning Li and frowned slightly.

Seeing his reaction, Ning Li’s guess was confirmed.

The corners of her lips curled up slightly, revealing a faint smile.

“Hello, Teacher Shen, I’m Ning Li.”

Ning Li.

Of course, Shen Zhijin remembered this name.

This was the physics genius that Xu Yin was full of praise for.

He had just revised her thesis not too long ago.

Oh, that’s right. Xu Yin had mentioned that she was a freshman at the Astronomy Department of Xijing University’s Institute of Physics this year.

Shen Zhijin closed his eyes. By the time he opened them again, all the turbulence in his eyes had already calmed down.

He nodded slightly.

“Hello.”

Ning Li had long known that Shen Zhijin had returned to China. Previously, she had heard that she had seen him at the Institute of Physics before. Thus, she had also harbored some thoughts of meeting him in person one day.

After all, he was a top figure standing at the peak of the physics world.

She had thought that she would have to wait until the school’s anniversary celebration, but she had not expected to meet him today, at such an occasion.

It was quite a coincidence.

“Vice-Principal Shen, here’s your peach tea.”

The salesgirl clearly knew Shen Zhijin. She smiled warmly and handed him a cup of freshly made peach tea.

Shen Zhijin was the vice-principal of Xijing University. Although he had only spent half a year in the country so far, he was too famous. With such a handsome and elegant face, he was a legendary figure in the school and very popular.

Shen Zhijin’s gaze fell on the cup of peach tea. He did not take it, but instead looked at Ning Li.

“Here’s your tea.”

After all, Ning Li had been the first one to arrive.

His voice was clear and cold, and his tone was calm and indifferent.

Ning Li thought that this appearance was more in line with her imagination of this very important person.

She looked at the salesgirl.

“Please pack it up, thank you.”

The salesgirl was a little embarrassed. Seeing that Ning Li and Shen Zhijin were not too bothered, she quickly responded and retrieved a bag from the side to pack it up.

Ning Li took it.

By then, the second cup was ready.

The salesgirl handed it to Shen Zhijin.

Shen Zhijin raised his hand.

His hand was long and fair, and there was a watch on his left wrist.

Ning Li’s gaze casually swept over the watch, and she was suddenly stunned.

It was a silver mechanical watch.

Ning Li recognized this brand and it was not cheap.

However, Shen Zhijin’s watch seemed to be quite old.

More importantly, the hands on the dial were still.

Ning Li was slightly surprised and raised her eyes to look at him again.

Shen Zhijin… Was he actually carrying a watch that was already broken?

With his status, it would not be a problem for him to change to a more expensive watch. At the very least, he could repair it, right?

Why…

However, this was Shen Zhijin’s personal matter after all, and she should not interfere in it.

She quickly retracted her gaze and said to Shen Zhijin, “Then Teacher Shen, I’ll take my leave first.”

Shen Zhijin replied with a “Hmm”.

Ning Li turned around to leave. Just as she was about to push the door open, she was suddenly stopped.

“Wait.”

Ning Li turned around.

Shen Zhijin’s gaze landed on her hand.

“You didn’t take the straw.”

Ning Li looked down and saw that there was no straw in the bag.

The salesgirl noticed her mistake and apologized profusely.

“Ah, I’m sorry, I’m sorry!”

Ning Li shook her head and walked back to take a straw which she then put in the bag.

Shen Zhijin took the cup of peach tea, ready to leave.

The decor of this shop had a very romantic theme, and even the cup had a pink and soft look.

A person like Shen Zhijin could be seen with just one look, and it was clear that he was clean and rigid, completely different from the style of this cup.

Ning Li caught a glimpse of this scene from the corner of her eye and inexplicably thought of Shen Zhijin’s exceptionally soft and cute email reply.

The corners of her lips curved.

Shen Zhijin was standing in front, while Ning Li was behind.

He was about to leave, but he suddenly remembered something. He stopped and opened the door, allowing Ning Li to go first.

Ning Li did not expect such an important person to be so… approachable?

She thanked him.

“Thank you, Teacher Shen.”

Shen Zhijin’s expression was indifferent.

“You’re welcome.”

Ning Li smiled.

“About the thesis, I would like to thank you as well.”

Shen Zhijin had become the youngest doctoral advisor at Xijing University at the age of 21.

Countless people wanted his guidance, but the requirements for him to accept students were very high.

It was indeed a very rare opportunity that he would even personally revise and guide this thesis.

Ning Li had written a thank-you letter previously, but since they had met now, it was better to say it again as a show of sincerity.

Shen Zhijin’s calm expression finally relaxed a little.

He said, “It’s you who is outstanding.”

If Xu Yin and the others heard these words, their jaws would probably drop.

This was because Shen Zhijin rarely praised other people.

He was definitely a top-notch physics genius. People like him were often arrogant and conceited.

This was something that could not be helped, because their thinking was indeed from another dimension. Even if an ordinary person spent their entire life, it would still be difficult for them to reach it.

Shen Zhijin was famous for his academic rigor. He could even be said to be harsh.

Therefore, to be able to receive his praise was even harder than ascending to the heavens.

For Ning Li to receive such recognition from him now, based on a paper that had yet to be officially published was enough to show how much he admired Ning Li.

Ning Li naturally understood this as well.

The corners of her lips were bright, and her dimples were shallow.

“Thank you, Teacher Shen.”

Shen Zhijin’s gaze froze on her face for a moment. He lowered his chin slightly, then turned around and left.

Ning Li went in another direction.

After taking a few steps, a phone rang behind him. Shen Zhijin stopped in his tracks.

Then, he heard the young girl pick up the phone.

“Hello?”

That was indeed a completely different voice from what he remembered.

Shen Zhijin lowered his head slightly and looked at the peach tea in his hand.

The sound of footsteps gradually faded away, and so did the girl’s voice.

Shen Zhijin stood there for a long time, his palms slightly tightened.

After a long time, he raised his head, his expression exceptionally calm.

He walked forward, his tall and straight figure gradually disappearing into the darkness.

The rich peach fragrance spread in the air.

Just like what he had done countless times over the years.

His shoulders and back were straight, and everything was fine..
