Chapter 592 - No One in the Gu Family Acknowledged Him

Chapter 592: No One in the Gu Family Acknowledged Him

Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation

There was a moment of silence.

Ning Li was startled and subconsciously looked at Shen Zhijin.

Sister-in-law?

Had he actually called Liang Su ‘sister-in-law’?!

Then, that meant that he and the Gu family–

Someone quickly came to Ning Li’s mind: the fourth miss of the Gu family!

The only explanation for Shen Zhijin addressing Liang Su in that way was that he and the fourth miss of the Gu family–

That’s right, Shen Zhijin was married, but his wife had passed away many years ago.

The fourth daughter of the Gu family had indeed passed away a long time ago.

The facts did match.

Ning Li’s eyes widened slightly, and countless thoughts instantly emerged in her heart.

She had not carefully looked into Shen Zhijin’s private affairs, so she had not known who his wife was.

She had not expected it to have been the fourth daughter of the Gu family?!

However, while they had been in Hong Kong City, the Gu family had never mentioned Shen Zhijin.

Even the horse trainer at the Dutian Racecourse would always refer to that person as the fourth daughter of the Gu family.

Anyone who heard it would think that the fourth daughter of the Gu family had been unmarried, as if Shen Zhijin had never appeared in her life before.

Shen Zhijin’s expression was calm. The way he had called her “Sister-in-law’ could not have been more natural.

Ning Li could not help but allow her gaze to fall on his hand. The wedding ring glowed faintly.

This…

There was a gentle and polite smile on Liang Su’s face.

“Theard that Mr. Shen returned to the Capital some time ago. I didn’t expect to bump into you today.”

Her tone was gentle and polite, but it was also detached.

She didn’t respond to Shen Zhijin calling her “Sister-in-law.”

“It’s been a long time. We should have a good catch-up, but it’s not convenient today.”

Liang Su smiled.

Anyone could tell that she was just being polite.

Shen Zhijin had retumed to the Capital two months ago. Gu Tingfeng’s family spent most of their time in the Capital now.

If they had really wanted to meet, why would they have delayed it until now?

Shen Zhijin was silent for a moment, not seeming to be surprised by Liang Su’s attitude.

He nodded and said lightly, “I should have taken the initiative to visit, but Big Brother and Sister-in-law are busy, so I could not possibly disturb you too much. Sister-in-law, I’m sure you have some other matter to attend to first.”

This was the first time Ning Li had heard Shen Zhijin talk to anyone with such an attitude and tone of voice.

He was a young genius, and he could be said to have achieved great heights in academic and scientific research. Now, he was one of the top physicists in the domestic and international physics circles.

‘The word “pride” had always been engraved in his bones.

But now…

Ning Li could not describe what she was feeling.

In short, the way Shen Zhijin was behaving was very different from usual.

Was all this because… of the fourth daughter of the Gu family?

Liang Su frowned slightly.

For so many years, Shen Zhijin had always said this.

He knew full well that the Gu family would not let him come to their house.

No one in the Gu family acknowledged him.

Yet, he remained as stubborn as ever. Every time they met, it would be the same as before.

She gathered her emotions and waved at Ning Li. The smile on her face became much warmer.

“Ah Li, let’s go.”

Shen Zhijin turned his head and glanced at Ning Li.

He had already known that Ning Li’s boyfriend was Lu Huaiyu, but he had never heard of her actually knowing the members of the Gu family.

Moreover, it was obvious that Liang Su was very close to her.

Ning Li responded by saying to Shen Zhijin, “Then… Teacher Shen, I’ll be taking my leave first, alright?”

Shen Zhijin replied with a “hmm”.

Only then did Ning Li move forward to walk to Liang Su’s side.

Liang Su smiled and moved to hold her hand.

“It’s been a long time since we last parted in Hong Kong City. Ah Li has become so beautiful. What would you like to eat today?”

The comer of Ning Li’s lips lifted.

“Tm fine with anything. I can go with your preference.”

“That won’t do. It’s a rare opportunity to be able to treat Ning to a meal, so of course, we have to choose carefully. How about the Jiutian Family? Or Fengdu?”

“Both are fine.”

Gu Siyang finally could not resist sticking his head out of the car window, saying happily, “Since Ning Li can’t choose, then I’ll choose! Mom, I want to eat at the barbecue restaurant on Xichun Road!”

Liang Su glanced at him indifferently.

“It’s greasy.”

Gu Siyang gave Ning Lia pitiful look.

“Ning Li! That restaurant is really delicious! I haven’t eaten it in a long time! Can we go eat that?”

Ning Li hesitated for a moment before nodding.

She was not very picky about these things. Since Gu Siyang had made a request, she could not refuse.

Then, she thought of Liang Su and said, “If Mrs. Gu doesn’t like it, we can change it–”

“Why not?” Liang Su’s attitude instantly took a 180-degree turn. She looked at Ning Li and said seriously, “I’ve been saying that Ah Li seems to have lost some weight recently and that should be remedied. Let’s go to that one then.”

‘As she said that, she waved at Gu Siyang.

“Siyang, let’s go to that one.”

He knew it!

Gu Siyang stepped on the accelerator and the car drove away.

Ning Li unintentionally glanced at the rearview mirror, only to see that Shen Zhijin was still standing in the same spot.

He seemed to be looking their way without actually knowing what he was looking at. Then, he lowered his head slightly.

The people around him were coming and going. For some reason, his tall and lean figure seemed lonely and cold.

She recalled the scene just now.

She had not expected Shen Zhijin to have such a relationship with the Gu family.

The impression she had gotten was that Shen Zhijin should have treated his wife extremely well.

For so many years, he had been alone and had never married again.

He did not celebrate the Mid-Autumn Festival, yet he would go home with red camellias, a pony doll, and a rainbow lollipop on the eve of the Mid-Autumn Festival.

At first, she had not paid much attention to it, but now that she thought about it, she realized that those had been for the fourth miss of the Gu family.

It was for the person he had lost a long time ago. The one he would never forget every year.

So, why was the Gu family so resistant to him?

Liang Su was such a gentle and polite person. If even she had such an attitude towards Shen Zhijin, then the attitudes of the rest of the Gu family towards him would not even need mentioning.

Noticing that Ning Li seemed to be lost in her thoughts, Liang Su also looked over.

With this glance, she also saw the figure in the rearview mirror.

‘As the car continued to move forward, Shen Zhijin’s figure also became smaller and smaller, gradually becoming further and further away.

She sighed softly in her heart.

“Ah Li, why did you come out with him just now?” Liang Su weighed her words carefully, “You two… seem to be quite familiar with each other?”

She knew that Ning Li was from the Academy, and that Shen Zhijin was the honorary dean of the Academy. It was inevitable that the two of them would cross paths.

However, Ning Li was a freshman. Logically speaking, it was unlikely that she would come into contact with Shen Zhijin.

Ning Li came back to her senses and explained, “I am currently working on an experiment with Teacher Shen’s new research team.”

Liang Su finally came to a realization, but her emotions were a little complicated.

‘When Ning Li had come to Xijing University to study astronomy, she was already… Who would have thought that she was now partially a student of Shen Zhijin?

Obviously, Shen Zhijin must have admired her very much, which was why he had made an exception.

If there were no obstacles later, after Ning Li finished her university credits, it would very likely mean that she would be studying under Shen Zhijin for her Ph.d.

This…

If the members of her family heard this, they would probably feel discontented again.

However, Ning Li was indeed very talented in physics. If she could have Shen Zhijin to guide her, her future would be limitless.

‘The car turned right and Ning Li looked in the rearview mirror again.

Shen Zhijin finally turned around and left..
