Chapter 763 - The Boss’s Child
Shen Li had been very busy this Spring Festival.
Since the first day of the Lunar New Year, she had been kept busy with various New Year greetings.
Since she was in Hong Kong City, many people could not meet with her, so she made quite a number of video and voice calls.
On the 17th day of the first lunar month, she finally set off on the journey back to the Capital.
After resting for a night in Tianye City, Shen Li went to the Institute’s Laboratory the next morning.
When she arrived at 601, Tang Yi was the only one in the room, staring at the computer as he revised his thesis.
His thesis was about to reach its deadline and had to be submitted before Saturday, which was why he had been revising it frantically for the past few days.
When he heard the sound of footsteps, he subconsciously looked up and was instantly shocked.
“Little Junior Sister?!”
His eyes widened in surprise and delight.
“Little Junior Sister, when did you come back?”
“Senior Brother, long time no see.”
Shen Li put down her backpack before pulling her laptop and two books out. She pulled out a chair and sat down.
“I returned to the Capital yesterday.”
“You returned to the Capital yesterday and came to the laboratory today?” A complicated look appeared in Tang Yi’s eyes. “Little Junior Sister, if you work so hard, how will others live?”
If he had even half of his junior sister’s capabilities, he would not be tortured to this extent by the thesis!
Shen Li looked at the obvious dark circles under his eyes and felt some sympathy in her heart. She comforted him.
“Senior Brother, I don’t plan on working on the experiment today.”
“Oh, oh, that’s good, that’s good!”
Tang Yi patted his chest and felt much better.
“So you just casually came over to take a look today?”
Shen Li smiled.
“Yes, I haven’t been here in a long time. I wanted to revisit the environment and familiarize myself with it again.”
As she said this, she took a book and started reading.
Tang Yi’s gaze fell on the book in her hand.
–University Physics (Part Two).
Tang Yi casually asked, “Eh? Junior Sister, the semester hasn’t officially started, yet you’re already starting to preview the subject?”
Shen Li did not even raise her head as she flipped through a page.
She had already read this book before. She was merely reviewing it today.
“I have to take the exam for this class the day after tomorrow.”
Tang Yi was stunned.
“Isn’t this one of the major classes for the second semester of your freshman year?”
Logically speaking, she would not have studied it yet. How could there be an exam?
Shen Li nodded.
“I applied for an exemption.”
Tang Yi instantly understood. If a student passed the exemption exam at the start of the semester, they would be able to directly receive credits for this course without having to attend the class.
“Little Junior Sister, is this… Are you going to finish the undergraduate course ahead of time?”
At first, Tang Yi was surprised. However, after thinking about it carefully, he felt that it was reasonable.
With Little Junior Sister’s talent and standard, there was indeed no need to waste too much time on those courses.
“Hmm.” Shen Li replied.
Tang Yi’s gaze fell on the book next to her. It was also a professional course, so he asked with a smile, “Hey, Little Junior Sister, did you apply for the exemption for two courses at the same time?”
Shen Li turned another page.
“No, it’s just that these two courses will be the first to be tested. That’s why I’m looking at these two courses first.”
Tang Yi, “…”
An ominous premonition suddenly surged up in his heart.
“The first to be tested… Then, how many courses did you apply for an exemption?”
Shen Li tilted her head slightly, one hand supporting her chin as she pondered for a moment.
Tang Yi’s expression instantly cracked, and he was completely dumbfounded.
School had only just started!
She had applied to get an exemption from fourteen courses?!
Hadn’t she only taken thirteen exams last semester?!
“Fortunately, most of them don’t need to be put into practice, so it’s less of a hassle,” Shen Li said.
Most of these courses were specialized courses from the Institute of Physics, while a few were from the Institute of Mathematics.
Her full perfect score at the end of last semester had indeed played a significant role in helping her pass the exemption exams for these courses.
Tang Yi’s lips moved, but he could not utter a single word.
He himself had been recognized as a genius since he was young. He had consecutively skipped grades and now at only twenty-one years old, he was already studying for his Ph.D. under Shen Zhijin. He was definitely someone to be envied.
However, ever since he had come to 601, his worldview had been constantly destroyed, and he often felt as if his IQ had been pushed to the ground and was being rubbed against it.
Today, this feeling was especially strong.
He felt as if his brain was bleeding from the friction.
He finally spoke with difficulty, his voice trembling slightly.
“Junior Sister, fourteen subjects. You… you’re taking them all together?!”
“Not really. It’s going to take four days,” Shen Li corrected him.
Tang Yi, “…”
What difference did that make?!
The winter break had only just ended?! Little Junior Sister had come back to take the exam just like that?!
And it was for so many classes!
Tang Yi forced himself to shift his gaze away from Shen Li’s two books, stiffly turning his neck to look at the computer screen again.
Faced with this paper that seemed to be baring its fangs and brandishing its claws, Tang Yi had felt the unprecedented impulse to smash the computer!
What did it mean to be admired by others?
The Boss’ child was clearly the best!
Just then, another voice filled with joy sounded.
“Eh? Junior Sister!”
Shen Li turned around and saw Yan Qiu and Fu Niannian walking towards her.
Fu Niannian walked over with a smile.
“It’s been more than a month since we last met. It’s been such a long holiday. Did Junior Sister have a great time?”
Shen Li greeted them and nodded when she heard this.
“I did have a great time.”
Fu Niannian chuckled and sat down in his seat. He took a sip of the coffee that he had just brought over.
“That’s what I said–”
Tang Yi reminded him expressionlessly.
“Second Senior Brother, Junior Sister applied for the exemption test for fourteen courses.”
Fu Niannian spat out a mouthful of coffee.
He frantically wiped the table while looking at Shen Li in disbelief.
Yan Qiu also tripped and nearly fell.
A strange atmosphere instantly fell upon the laboratory.
Seeing them like this, Tang Yi’s heart finally calmed down.
He leaned back.
“I think Little Junior Sister has had quite a fulfilling winter break.”
Taking the exams for fourteen classes that she had never attended before– What kind of person was this?
Fu Niannian felt his breath stop for a long time.
“… Excuse me.”
Yan Qiu let out a long sigh.
“This eldest senior brother really can’t take it anymore!”
Who could take this kind of blow, day in and day out?
Shen Li looked around, remaining silent for a moment.
“Then… why don’t I go to the library?”
Her presence here seemed to be quite stimulating to them.
“Wait a moment!”
Fu Niannian suddenly thought of something and jumped up from his chair.
“I have a data analysis that has been stuck. Little Junior Sister, would you like to help me look at it before you leave?”
Shen Li, “…”
Yan Qiu looked at him with disdain.
“Fu Niannian, are you even capable of doing it? Aren’t you always asking Little Junior Sister for help?”
Fu Niannian was not convinced.
“Little Junior Sister has already finished reading the books for fourteen classes! How long did it take?! Can’t I just ask a question?”
Yan Qiu was silent for a long while.
“F*ck, what you said does make sense.”
He took out an experimental record book from the drawer.
“Then, Little Junior Sister, please help me take a look at this experiment first!”
