Chapter 661 - What Are You Thinking About

Chapter 661 What Are You Thinking About

Almost involuntarily, he looked back.

The door was already open and Ning Li was getting out of the bus along with everyone else. She was carrying a black backpack and her hair had been tied up in a bun, making her look even taller and more slender. Her face was clean and beautiful.

Even though he could not tell what the person in front had said, he saw her look up and smile.

Shen Zhijin could clearly hear the sound of his heart beating hard.

He called out.

“Ning Li.”

Ning Li turned her head when she heard him, with a hint of a smile still on her face.

“Teacher Shen?”

Shen Zhijin was about to speak, but the people behind him also came near to Ning Li.

She did not want to block the door, so she got out of the bus first.

Shen Zhijin walked towards the back door.

When Tang Yu saw this, he called out to him.

“Zhijin, where are you going?”

The students were to get off the bus here, but the professors still had some follow-up arrangements and had to go to the administrative building.

Shen Zhijin stopped in his tracks.

“Wait for me for a moment.”

Then, he got out of the bus too.

When Ning Li saw him get off, she felt a little strange.

Logically speaking, Shen Zhijin should not have gotten out of the bus with them, right?

Moreover, it seemed like he had wanted to say something to her just now.

Shen Zhijin stood in front of her and his gaze fell on her face.

However, when he met her clear and clean eyes, he suddenly did not know how to speak. There seemed to be endless emotions in his chest that were colliding back and forth, but he was unable to capture and control them. Ning Li saw that his expression was a little strange, so she asked again,”Teacher Shen, what’s wrong?”

Shen Zhijin’s throat tightened.

“What you just said… When is your birthday?”

Ning Li was stunned.

Shen Zhijin had gotten out of the bus just to ask her this question?

However, it looked like there was more to his reason for asking this question.

She said, “June 26th.”

Shen Zhijin had read the information on Ning Li’s background before.

The first time he had known of Ning Li had been from Xu Yin.

She was the one who had taken over the small astronomical monitoring station in Lincheng.

She was from Lincheng.

Shen Zhijin held his breath.

“You–“

Before he could finish, Ning Li’s phone vibrated.

She looked down and saw that it was an unknown number.

She decided to cancel the call.

However, the other party persisted and continued to call.

Shen Zhijin said, “You should take the call first.”

Ning Li hesitated for a moment, took two steps to the side, and picked up the call.

“Hello.”

There was dead silence on the other end of the phone.

However, Ning Li sensed something and her eyes narrowed slightly.

A moment later, Ye Ci’s voice filled with resentment was heard.

“Ning Li, you must be very happy to see me reduced to this state, right?”

During this period of time, she had sacrificed so much just to make Tao Siwen happy. Every day, she had been forced to endure the feeling of nausea and fawn over that disgusting man.

However, she had really had enough of her days of poverty!

She had wanted so badly to go back to the life she used to live and turn her life around again!

Therefore, she had tried her best to cling to this person.

She had thought that everything was going to be better, but unexpectedly, Tao Siwen’s wife had somehow found out.

What she had not expected was that Tao Siwen, who had seemed so powerful, was actually afraid of his wife. Not only did he not dare to refute her, but he had also even blamed Ye Ci for everything!

In Feiyang Mall, she had been stripped naked and slapped in public. It had been an extreme humiliation!

She did not dare to go online. Everyone was hurling abuse at her. There were also photos and videos of her that she found unbearable which had spread almost all over the Internet.

She did not even dare to go out. She was afraid of being recognized as she walked on the road, pointed at, and mocked.

After the incident, she had once tried to look for Tao Siwen, but found that she had been blocked.

Even now, his wife was still up to her tricks and had distributed countless flyers in her neighborhood.

Her name, cell phone number, and half-naked photos had been printed on them!

Now, she could only hide in her small rented house every day and live like a mouse that could not see the light of day!

She was almost going crazy!

However, both she and Tao Siwen had clearly been very careful. How had his wife found out about this so quickly? After thinking about it, she could only think of one person– Ning Li! After all, Ning Li had once seen her get into Tao Siwen’s car with her own eyes!

Ning Li spoke with an indifferent tone of voice.

“You chose this path yourself, didn’t you?”

Ye Ci’s voice was sharp.

“So, it really was you! And, the forgiveness letter from before, you thought of a way to get it as well, right? Ning Li, you deliberately let them release me, didn’t you?!”

Previously, she had only been glad that she had not been locked up. In hindsight, she now finally understood that it had not been that simple.

Ning Li had wanted her to come out and experience this painful torture! “Ning Li, why are you so vicious?! Don’t you feel uneasy when you sleep at night?!” Ning Li laughed. “Thanks to you, I sleep very well.” Ye Ci was full of anger but had nowhere to vent it. Her voice trembled.

“Ning Li, aren’t you afraid that mom will find out about this? If she finds out that you are such a person–“.

“Yes, the last time she came to the school to look for me, she should have already realized what kind of person I am.”

Ning Li’s tone was calm. The corners of her lips curled up slightly, but there was not the slightest hint of a smile at the corners of her eyes and brows.

Ye Ci’s voice came to an abrupt stop. After a long time, she finally sneered, full of ridicule and resentment.

“Ning Li, a person like you who is even capable of harming your own biological mother to such an extent shows just how ruthless you are!” Ning Li smiled and said in a calm voice, “You’re too polite. She’s your mother. Have you forgotten? I told you before that I wouldn’t compete with you in this matter. That was the way it was, is, and always was be.”

A dead silence fell upon Ye Ci’s end.

Shen Zhijin was standing nearby but could not hear what the person on the other end of the phone was saying.

However, he clearly saw the corner of Ning Li’s lips slowly curl up with a calm and extremely cold smile.

He heard her say softly, “My mother was long gone since I was six years old.”

Her light voice came with the early winter wind.

Shen Zhijin suddenly felt a chill all over his body, as if something was about to break.

He stood rooted to the ground in a daze, his eyes gradually losing focus. Ning Li did not give Ye Ci another chance to speak. Instead, she ended the call and blocked her.

Then, she turned around to look at Shen Zhijin, but she was stunned.

Shen Zhijin’s expression seemed to be…

“Teacher Shen?”

Ning Li walked over and called out to him.

Shen Zhijin came back to his senses.

For a moment, Ning Li seemed to see that something was breaking in his eyes.

But soon, he put away all his expressions and returned to his usual cold and indifferent look.

“Teacher Shen, you asked me about my birthday just now. Is there a problem?”

Shen Zhijin’s hand slowly tightened.

“No. I just thought it was a little coincidental.”

As he spoke, the corners of his lips pursed slightly,

“That’s also Tangtang’s birthday.”

Ning Li’s lips moved slightly.

So that was what it was…

“Zhijin?”

Tang Yu called out to him from the bus.

Shen Zhijin said, “You may go back now.”

After saying that, he turned around and returned to the bus.

The car started.

Shen Zhijin sat down by the window and looked outside with a calm expression on his face.

Only his knuckles were slightly pale due to the exertion.

He closed his eyes. Shen Zhijin, why are you being delusional?
