Chapter 754 - Closer to the Galaxy  

Chapter 754: Closer to the Galaxy

The whole table had gone quiet for a moment.

Shen Li took a deep breath. She felt that she had made her conclusion too early.

The naming rights of international asteroids usually belonged to the general discoverer. However, because the observation of asteroids required extremely high-end astronomical equipment, in most cases, they were discovered by the major astronomical observatories and research institutions. Very few ordinary people were able to do this.

It was really rare to get the right to name asteroids, especially in China.

Now, Shen Zhijin had actually given it to her directly, and it was only because she had gotten good results in her exams…

Noticing her surprise, Shen Zhijin said, “The naming rights have been confirmed. You can take your time to think about it. Whenever you have a favorite, it still won’t be too late to name it.”

Shen Li, “… Oh, thank you, Dad.”

Could it be that she was conflicted over the name of the asteroid? It was clearly because of the naming rights!

However, Shen Zhijin’s expression remained calm, as if he had simply brought her a piece of strawberry layer cake on his way home from work. Other than thanking him, she really could not think of anything else to say at that moment.

Shen Zhijin pursed his lips into a smile.

“Tangtang did well in the exams. She deserves a reward.”

In fact, it was not just because she had done well in the exam.

This was the first report card she had brought home after her return.

No matter how well she had done in the exam, this was precious to him.

This war without smoke had once again been ended by Shen Zhijin.

Lu Huaiyu raised his hand and rubbed his knuckles against his brow. Then, he took his phone out and sent a message.

Shen Li’s phone lit up. It was a WeChat message from Lu Huaiyu.

She looked up at him and opened it.

[ Shen Tangtang, it seems that you’re getting harder and harder to woo. ]

Without even mentioning other things, the number of gifts just from this room alone was enough for her to drown in.

How could she still notice him?

The corner of her lips curled up slightly.

[ Indeed, I haven’t thought about it yet. ]

Lu Huaiyu looked down at her reply and pondered for a moment.

[ Then, change it to a wish first. When you want it in the future, come and exchange it with me. ]

Shen Li really could not help but laugh.

[ Second Brother, do you still remember how many wishes you’ve left with me? ]

From the first time they had watched the shooting star together until now, he had given, allowed her to have, and sent many wishes.

After she had sent this message, she looked at Lu Huaiyu with some amusement, wanting to see how he would react.

Lu Huaiyu lowered his eyes slightly, probably because he had seen what she said. Then, the corner of his lips twitched slightly, as if he was smiling.

His well-defined fingers tapped a few times on the screen, and then he rested the screen before he put down his phone, all in a series of movements that were extremely smooth.

It was as if there was no need to think about this question at all because there was already a definite answer.

Shen Li lowered her head and saw a line of words.

[ Anyway, a lifetime is a long time. I can give you any amount you want. ]

After the meal, everyone finally left and Shen Li followed Shen Zhijin to Mill Lab.

Her thesis had progressed to a critical point, and she needed a large amount of measurement data.

Now, in Hong Kong City, she could only rely on the equipment at Mill Laboratory.

As an international top astrophysics laboratory, mill laboratory usually did not grant permission to outsiders for this kind of thing.

However, Shen Zhijin was one of their scientific advisers, so he naturally had this privilege.

Shen Zhijin accompanied her to the observatory to record until 10 o’clock in the evening, and then took her to the observatory.

After adjusting the telescope, he turned around and waved at her.

“Tangtang, come.”

Shen Li moved forward.

Shen Zhijin said, “What you see now is MT-36721, an asteroid that orbits between Jupiter and Mars. I discovered it a few years ago. After you name it and submit it to the International Asteroid Naming Committee for approval, it will be announced to the world and officially become the permanent name of this celestial body.”

In other words, this asteroid would forever be engraved with her mark.

Shen Li looked at it for a long time until her eyes became sore.

She took a light breath and then looked at Shen Zhijin. Her peach blossom eyes were extremely bright, almost surpassing the vast starry night.

Shen Zhijin smiled and said, “I’ve thought of some names before, but I could never decide on one. I kept feeling that it was not suitable. I think I was waiting for you.”

Shen Li went over to hug him and rested her forehead on his shoulder.

“Actually, Father, you did think of something, right?”

Shen Zhijin paused and said in a gentle voice, “I did think of calling it Tangtang.”

It had been a long time since he had owned anything in his life. During an extremely long period of time, he had fallen into an abyss. In his despair, all he could do was to look up at the starry sky.

The universe was far away, the galaxy was brilliant, and an asteroid was orbiting around it.

It was so small, but compared to his life, it was long enough.

Who in this world did not have any selfish thoughts?

He had thought many times that if it was called Tangtang, then he would be able to see it whenever he looked up.

Even if it was far away from him, it did not matter. Compared to life and death, it was the closest distance he could hope for.

He raised his hand and gently caressed her hair. How could he have expected that such a day would have come in his life?

It turned out that the distance between him and Tangtang could be closer than one could hope for.

“Shen Tangtang.”

Shen Li said softly, “Let’s call it Shen Tangtang.”

Shen Zhijin was stunned.

“Are you sure?”

After all, the name she was really using now was Shen Li.

Shen Li moved away slightly from his embrace and nodded.

She looked at him with her clear eyes and said softly, “Shen Li belongs to everyone, but Shen Tangtang belongs to Mom and Dad.”

After leaving the observatory, Shen Zhijin sent Shen Li back to the Gu family mansion.

She returned to her room, washed up, and changed into her pajamas.

It was almost 11:30 pm by the time she was done tidying up.

She casually picked up her phone and glanced at it. She realized that Ji Shu had called her half an hour ago, but she had not picked up.

It was quite late, but with Ji Shu’s schedule, this was not a problem at all.

Thus, Shen Li directly dialed back.

There was a ring, and Ji Shu quickly picked up the call.

“Sister Li?”

Ji Shu’s voice sounded especially energetic, and Shen Li could faintly hear the sound of a game.

“Are you playing a game?”

Shen Li asked.

Ji Shu hummed in acknowledgment.

“Sister Li, I heard that Yu Cheng picked on you today?”

Shen Li laughed.

“Did Gu Siyang say that?”

Other than him, there was no other possibility.

Ji Shu already knew that Gu Siyang and Shen Li were blood-related cousins.

If it were not for the intense training recently, he would have made a trip to Hong Kong City, no matter what.

That afternoon, Gu Siyang had told Ji Shu and the others everything that had happened at the Longchamp Racetrack.

LY had won a few rounds against FN, so their relationship was already not that good, to begin with. Now that they heard that Yu Cheng had actually dared to provoke Shen Li without fear of death, Ji Shu and the others almost laughed their heads off.

“Gu Siyang said that Yu Cheng’s face turned pale when you drifted over!”

Ji Shu was filled with regret,

“Why didn’t I see such a wonderful scene? Sister Li, why don’t I apply for a leave of absence to look for you?”

Shen Li poured a glass of water and asked casually, “Don’t you need to train?”

Ji Shu suddenly paused.

“Training is boring.”

Shen Li raised her eyebrows slightly.

Had these words came out of Ji Ci’s mouth?

“What’s wrong?”

Ji Shu was silent for a long time before he said somewhat irritably, “There’s a new coach on the base recently. It’s said that he was hired from Leland. Before he retired, he was a top racing driver. The best ranking he got was ninth place at an international level. But he’s very arrogant. I can’t get along with him.”

Shen Li paused slightly. She took a sip of water and put the cup down, but her fingers still did not let go.

After a while, she asked casually, “So powerful. What’s his name?”

Ji Shu said, “Doyle.”
