He turned around to take a look.

Ning Li had her head lowered slightly. Yan Qiu put the peanut milkshake back with a regretful look on his face.

“Eh? Then, won’t Little Junior Sister miss out on a lot of delicious food?”

‘The comers of Ning Li’s lips curled up as she nodded.

“Yeah. But Senior Brother can eat more on my behalf.”

Shen Zhijin momentarily went into a trance.

“Jin! I really want to have a peanut milkshake! Please help me eat more!”

“Is the peanut cake especially delicious, Jin?”

“Jin, help me try this too. What’s the taste and smell? Please smell it for me!”

“Zhijin, don’t you want it?” The man next to him asked in surprise.

“Yes.”

Shen Zhijin withdrew his gaze,

“I don’t like it now.”

The group of people sat down.

Shen Zhijin was with the other important people, while Ning Li and the others sat at another table next to them.

After the meal, Shen Zhijin left with his team.

By now, the sky was completely dark.

The streetlights on the road gradually lit up as the car quietly drove down the road.

Ning Li’s gaze swept over the storage compartment, but she did not know–

Bang!

A muffled sound was suddenly heard, and the body of the car instantly shook!

Shen Zhijin immediately turned the steering wheel!

Ning Li frowned.

The car slowly stopped by the side of the road.

“What’s wrong?”

Yan Qiu and the others were sitting in the back seat, and they were all shocked by the commotion.

“The car has a flat tire.”

“The car has a flat tire.”

The two replies rang out in the car at the same time.

Shen Zhijin turned his head to look at Ning Li, before releasing his seatbelt.

Ning Li pushed the door open and got out of the car almost at the same time.

The two of them walked to the right rear of the car at the same time.

Seeing this, Yan Qiu and the others also came back to their senses and followed them out.

“Why did this happen so suddenly?”

“What should we do? Should we call a tow truck?”

Shen Zhijin said, “There’s no need. There’s a spare tire in the trunk.”

As he spoke, he opened the trunk and took out the spare tire.

Ning Li also followed him and easily took the jack and several other items.

Shen Zhijin noticed it but did not say anything.

Yan Qiu’s reaction was rather quick. When he noticed the situation, he immediately set up the warning sign.

Ning Li followed Shen Zhijin and walked over. As they suspected, the rear tire on the right side of the car had burst.

While Shen Zhijin was checking the condition of the car, Ning Li had already set up the jack.

Fu Niannian was stunned.

“Junior Sister, you… have you done this before?”

This action seemed a little too familiar to her.

Ning Li paused.

“Yes. When I was back in my hometown, I would occasionally go to the garage to play, so I learned a thing or two while I was there.”

Changing a tire was something common, so there was nothing strange about it.

‘Tang Yi gave her a thumbs-up.

“Junior Sister, you’re amazing!”

“It’s pretty simple.”

Ning Li’s tone was calm.

Yan Qiu came over as well, as though he wanted to help.

“Teacher Shen, shall I do it?”

“There’s no need.”

‘As Shen Zhijin spoke, he rolled his sleeves up and turned his head to take something.

Just as he stretched out his hand, a pair of gloves was handed over to him.

Shen Zhijin paused for a moment before taking it and putting it on.

The two of them did not communicate verbally at all, but their coordination was very good. The entire tire-changing process was very smooth.

Shen Zhijin stood up and took his gloves off.

“It’s done.”

Yan Qiu and the others were responsible for putting the damaged tire and tools back into the trunk.

Fu Niannian elbowed Yan Qiu and lowered his voice.

“Eldest Senior Brother, you have to reflect on yourself! You’ve been following the Boss for so long, yet you’re not as good as Little Junior Sister!”

There had been no need for instructions, the entire process could not have been smoother.

Yan Qiu coughed lightly.

“Little Junior Sister is too smart, don’t compare me to her!”

Not long after Ning Li had come to the laboratory, they had already realized this point.

From the initial shock, to becoming desensitized to it after that, to the comfort of following Little Junior Sister and enjoying life, their mentality had changed very smoothly.

What a joke! With their Little Junior Sister leading the way, what was the point of them staying there?

Tang Yi let out a long sigh.

“As expected, we can’t count on our Senior Brother. Luckily, we still have our Little Junior Sister.”

Otherwise, how could they stay with these two senior brothers who were scamming them!

Fu Niannian scoffed.

“Can’t a person just pursue something?”

As he spoke, he looked up and saw that Ning Li was about to get into the car, so he quickly took a few steps forward.

“Junior Sister, you’ve worked hard! Allow me to open the car door for you!”

Son of a b*tch!

An hour later, Shen Zhijin drove the car to Ning Li’s dormitory.

Ning Li got out of the car.

“Goodbye, Teacher Shen. Goodbye, Senior Brothers.”

Shen Zhijin did not drive away until she tuned around and went upstairs.

The doctoral student’s dormitory was just a short distance away from this place.

Yan Qiu turned around to take a look, but he could no longer see Ning Li’s figure.

He smacked his lips.

“What is there that Little Junior Sister doesn’t know? I saw how skilled she was just now.”

Tang Yi said, “Didn’t little junior sister say that she played in the auto-repair factory and learned a little from that?!”

Fu Niannian stroked his chin in deep thought.

“This… but Little Junior Sister is only eighteen this year. Why would a young lady be interested in repairing cars? And I remember that her father caused an accident while he was drunk–”

As he said this, he suddenly realized what he said and abruptly stopped talking.

Yan Qiu frowned, and Tang Yi opened his mouth but did not say anything.

A strange silence settled inside the car.

‘When Ning Li had just entered the lab, Yan Qiu had privately warned them to try not to mention her family and past.

They were usually very careful. However, because they had encountered an emergency today, and since Ning Li had already gotten out of the car, he had unintentionally blurted it out in his relaxed state.

Everyone did not say anything else and consciously stopped talking about the topic.

Shen Zhijin looked at the rearview mirror and frowned slightly.

Previously, he had only had a basic understanding of Ning Li’s situation. He knew that she did not come from a good background. Her father was in prison, her mother had remarried, and she had been raised by her grandmother.

However, he had not known that her father had been sentenced for causing an accident while drunk.

He recalled the earlier scene where Ning Li was by his side and helped him change the tires.

He could tell that this was definitely not the first time she had done something like this. In fact, she had also followed him to check the condition of the car.

Yan Qiu and the others might not have noticed, but…

Ning Li seemed to know a lot about cars.

Fu Niannian’s question was actually not without reason.

A young girl who had grown up in such a family environment, yet she did not have any resistance toward cars. Instead–

Had she really spent time in a place like the auto repair factory when she was very, very young…

Shen Zhijin closed his eyes.

Ning Li’s life gradually became calm again.

She attended classes normally, did experiments, and occasionally went back to Shuiyuan Shijia to paint. Her schedule was very fulfilling.

On Wednesday morning, as usual, it was time for the 601 group meeting.

Ning Li carried her backpack as she headed there.

Just as she reached the lab building of the Institute of Physics, her cell phone rang.

She glanced at it and saw that it was an unknown number.

She immediately canceled the call.

However, the caller was very insistent, and quickly called her again.

Ning Li then picked up, but she did not say anything.

A familiar voice came from the receiver.

“Ning Li?”

Ning Li’s eyes turned cold..
