Chapter 638 - She Was Here for Lu Huaiyu
Chapter 638 She Was Here for Lu Huaiyu
Shen Zhijin’s expression was calm when he heard this, but he did not deny it.
Zhang Yao teased.
“Who doesn’t know that Ning Li is now the treasure of your institute? One by one, all of you pamper her.”
Xijing University had never been lacking in geniuses.
However, it was indeed rare to see someone as outstanding as Ning Li.
Otherwise, she would not have been liked and valued by Xu Yin and Shen Zhijin consecutively.
Bi Zhitong laughed.
“That’s true! But–“
He changed the topic and shook his head regretfully.
“It’s just that the child’s family is too… Fortunately, she is sensible and capable.” When Su Yuan had come to the school to make a big fuss, the matter had become a hot topic.
Shen Zhijin had even specially ordered the school to strengthen the management of the people who entered and left the venue. It would be difficult for the school leaders not to know this.
Which teacher would not like such a student? When Bi Zhitong said this, he turned his head to look at Shen Zhijin with a hint of envy in his eyes.
“When I entered the school, I wanted to find an opportunity to ask her if she would be interested in studying as my graduate student in the future. Who knew that in the blink of an eye, Zhijin would snatch her away?”
As he said this, he was filled with regret.
Zhang Yao mercilessly struck back.
“It’d be useless even if you had asked. That child signed up for the astronomy department. It’s obvious that she’s aiming for astrophysics. You’re in solid-state physics, how could you possibly snatch her away from Zhijin?”
Bi Zhitong was speechless.
“Let me think about it, alright?”
Zhang Yao suddenly thought of something and laughed.
“Speaking of this, I do remember something. A while ago, I had a meal with a teacher from Hua University. He said that from the National Physics Competition to the college entrance examination, Hua University’s admissions office had spent a lot of effort to persuade Ning Li to apply to Hua University. In the end, however, they were still rejected. I think this child has always had her own ideas. She has been thinking about our school’s astronomy department for a long time.”
As he spoke, he teased.
“Perhaps her aim had always been Zhijin from the beginning?”
The University of Xijing’s astronomy department was ranked first in the country, and Shen Zhijin was like a gold-plated signboard.
In fact, there were indeed many students who applied for the University of Xijing’s physics department every year who had indeed come for Shen Zhijin, not to mention the astronomy department.
Hearing this, Shen Zhijin’s eyebrows moved slightly. He pondered for a long time, his handsome and clean eyebrows relaxed, and the corners of his lips pursed into a faint smile.
Bi Zhitong suddenly said, “Not necessarily. Who knows whether she came here for that kid, Lu Huaiyu?”
The air was quiet for a moment.
The smile on Shen Zhijin’s face faded a little.
Zhang Yao asked, “What do you mean?”
Bi Zhitong raised his chin.
“No, isn’t that…?”
Shen Zhijin looked in the direction he pointed.
Beneath the night sky, Lu Huaiyu and Ning Li were walking together. Ning Li was walking along the narrow steps that were slightly higher. Lu Huaiyu was beside her, holding her hand.
Suddenly, Lu Huaiyu took half a step back.
Ning Li seemed to be affected by this force and lost her balance. She let out a small cry as she fell to the side.
Lu Huaiyu stepped forward again and grabbed her slender waist. He caught her and held her tightly. He looked down at her with a smile on his lips.
“Why are you so careless?” Ning Li raised her head from his arms and stared at him with her beautiful eyes.
“Lu Huaiyu! You did that on purpose!”
Lu Huaiyu raised his eyebrows slightly.
“Is Ah Li so smart? Then, you should reward
As he said that, he bent his head and leaned in closer, smiling as he kissed her lips.
At first, she dodged a few times, but she was trapped in his embrace, unable to move.
In the end, she could only obediently raise her little face and return his kiss.
Zhang Yao said, “Whoa, then I guess she really came for Lu Huaiyu.”
Shen Zhijin’s expression returned to his usual cold and indifferent expression.
In fact, the school leaders had not had any intention of watching the young couple in love It had really been just a coincidence.
However, whether it was Ning Li or Lu Huaiyu, both very outstanding. Therefore, the teachers’ attitudes were very open-minded.
Zhang Yao laughed.
“I heard that Professor Fang from the School of Mathematics has now made this kid obedient. Not only did he come back to accompany Ning Li to make up for his Advanced Mathematics lessons, but he also hasn’t even missed his homework.”
Professor Fang had become famous for winning this one battle, and since then, he had made the Finance Department teachers cry with envy.
Shen Zhijin did not say anything.
Lu Huaiyu held and kissed Ning Li for quite a while. He only let go of her when the phone in her pocket vibrated.
It was a call from Xue Langlang.
“Ning Li, Ding Yu and I are about to arrive at the dormitory. When are you coming back?”
Ning Li said, “Soon. I’m at the school gates.”
Hearing her words, Xue Langlang felt much more relieved, and only then did she hang up.
Ning Li put away her phone.
“Second Brother, I’ll be leaving now.”
Lu Huaiyu held her hand.
“I’ll send you to the door.”
Ning Li looked at him speechlessly.
There was only less than a hundred meters left, the entrance being just across the road.
Just as she was about to speak, she saw a familiar figure from the corner of her eye.
“Teacher Shen.” She moved slightly to the side, keeping a respectable distance from Lu Huaiyu,
“Vice-principal Zhang, Dean Bi.”
Lu Huaiyu raised his eyebrows and could not help but laugh.
However, it was in front of the leaders after all.
Immediately, he also turned to the side and greeted them one by one.
Zhang Yao and Bi Zhitong had smiles on their faces, while Shen Zhijin still nodded indifferently.
After that, they soon left.
Lu Huaiyu walked Ning Li to the entrance. After watching her enter the school, he turned around.
As soon as Ning Li returned to the dormitory, Xue Langlang could not help but pounce on her.
Placing both hands on her heart, she looked excited.
“Ning Li! Principal Shen is so good to you!” Ning Li looked at her blankly. “What?”
Xue Langlang immediately recounted to her what had happened at the school entrance. After she finished, she did not forget to prod Ding Yu. “Ding Yu! You were there too. You can prove that that’s what happened, right?” Ding Yu shut the computer helplessly.
Xue Langlang had been in a state of extreme excitement ever since she had come back and she had not been able to suppress it at all.
She felt that she would have to listen to Xue Langlang repeat this paragraph endlessly for the next month.
Ning Li was also very surprised to hear this. “… Really?”
After following Shen Zhijin for some time, she could be considered to have some understanding of his character and temper. This kind of situation was quite a common occurence for him.
After all, he was a top boss in the industry.
However, with his usual habits, he really would not take the initiative to give out his email.
Ning Li thought for a moment.
“Perhaps… it’s because your parents are also in the physics field?”
“No, no, no! This time, it’s definitely for your sake!” Xue Langlang was resolute and decisive, “You don’t know, my dad has a senior brother. His title is higher than my dad’s, and he has published more papers than my dad. I met Dean Shen twice last year, but I didn’t receive such treatment! Moreover, the reason Dean Shen took the initiative to speak to us at the beginning was to ask if you had returned! He was probably worried that you wouldn’t be safe as a girl in the middle of the night, right?”
As she spoke, she sighed.
“Sigh, Dean Shen may look cold and arrogant, but he’s actually a really good person!” Ning Li did not say anything. She actually understood what Xue Langlang meant.
After a long while, she nodded.
“Teacher Shen is indeed very good.”
Xue Langlang patted her shoulder and said solemnly, “Ning Li, you must work hard with Dean Shen!”
Ning Li, “… Oh.”
