Chapter 764 - Something About the Big Boss
Tang Yi could not take it anymore.
“Eldest Senior Brother, Second Senior Brother, please open your eyes and take a look. You still have a junior brother who is struggling in the sea of bitterness as he tries to change his thesis!”
Who could possibly be more anxious than him?
He immediately moved his laptop onto Shen Li’s desk.
“Little Junior Sister, saving a life is better than building a seven-level pagoda!”
Shen Li’s gaze lingered on his computer screen for a moment before she fell into deep thought.
Then, she asked in seriousness, “Senior Brother, do you want me to help you show this thesis to my dad?”
Tang Yi, “!!!”
If he dared to show this lousy first draft to his boss, was it because he felt that his Ph.D. career was too short and he wanted to prolong it on purpose?!
He choked up and took his laptop back with tears in his eyes.
“It’s just a misunderstanding… A misunderstanding… I wanted to ask, Junior Sister, would you like some water? I’ll go get some hot water for you.”
Shen Li laughed.
“Thank you, Senior Brother. There’s no need.”
Tang Yi despaired. “Oh.”
Shen Li pointed at the books.
“Let me finish reading these two books and I’ll help Senior Brother later in the afternoon.”
Tang Yi’s eyes instantly lit up. “Really?!”
Shen Li nodded.
Making changes to a thesis was quite difficult, so it was best to choose a time where she could be more focused.
Tang Yi’s eyes welled up with tears.
“Thank you, Junior Sister!”
Shen Li’s gaze lingered between Fu Niannian and Yan Qiu for a moment. Facing their expectant gazes, she hesitated for a moment.
“Senior Brother Niannian, let’s look at your data first.”
Fu Niannian clenched his fist and pumped it in the air. “Yes!”
He sauntered over with the laptop in his arms, with an incomparably bright smile.
“I just knew that Little Junior Sister loves me the most!”
Shen Li took the computer and tapped twice on the keyboard with her fingers. Then, she sniffed and looked up.
“Actually, it’s not that. It’s just that data problems are easier and faster to deal with.”
Fu Niannian’s smile instantly froze on his face.
Yan Qiu laughed so hard that his shoulders shook. He patted his shoulder sympathetically.
“Because it’s simple. Understand?”
Five minutes later, Shen Li returned the laptop to Fu Niannian.
“Senior Brother Niannian, it’s done.”
Fu Niannian accepted it dully, his ears still ringing with Shen Li’s earlier words.
He returned to his seat and once again, began to doubt life.
Yan Qiu and Tang Yi enjoyed the wonderful expression on his face for a while.
After Shen Li finished reading the experiment record book, she and Yan Qiu discussed the direction of the next experiment.
She had not been here for a period of time. Several times during the course of the experiment, she had asked Yan Qiu for help, so they had a better understanding of each other’s subject experiments. Now, their conversation went by very efficiently.
The discussion between the two of them lasted about fifteen minutes. After making adjustments to a few details, they finally solved it successfully.
Only then did Shen Li open her book and continue reading.
School was about to officially start and she had to prepare for the exam, so the progress of the experiment here had temporarily slowed down. She planned to wait until the exam was over before she shifted her focus back.
At noon, the small group went out to have some hotpot together, to officially welcome Shen Li back.
In the afternoon, Shen Li set aside an hour and a half to help Tang Yi revise his thesis.
Actually, Tang Yi’s skill level was up to par. Otherwise, he would not have been recruited by Shen Zhijin in the first place.
It was just that being a part of 601 was not that simple, especially with Shen Li who had perfectly inherited Shen Zhijin’s intelligence and talent. Naturally, the pressure on him was even greater.
After finishing the revision, Tang Yi stared blankly at the screen for quite a while before sighing.
Shen Li asked curiously, “Senior Brother, is there another problem with the thesis?”
Tang Yi shook his head as he held himself back for a while before he spoke with a heavy heart.
“I just suddenly thought of a question: Little Junior Sister, could it be that you’ll get your Ph.D. before I do?”
Shen Li, “…”
She said in seriousness, “Senior Brother, you can do it.”
Tang Yi, “Huh!”
Soon, the new semester at Xijing University officially began.
The cold and empty campus was once again bustling with activity.
At 7:50 in the morning, Shen Li went to the classroom at the Institute of Physics to take the University Physics (Lower) paper for the exemption examination.
Xijing University had gathered the most outstanding students in the country, so Shen Li was not the only one who had applied for exemption.
When she arrived at the examination hall, there were already seven or eight people sitting in the room.
Some of them looked familiar and were in the same class as her.
When they saw her, everyone fell silent for a moment.
However, when they thought about it carefully, it seemed that no one was more qualified than her to take the exam.
Shen Li went to her seat and sat down.
At eight o’clock, the exam officially began.
Shen Li took the exam paper and gave it a cursory glance. Then, she took out a pen and started to answer the questions.
The classroom was very quiet. There was only the rustling sound of the tip of the pen rubbing against the paper.
Half an hour later, Shen Li put away her pen and got up to hand in her paper.
The slight sound of the friction of the chair as it was pushed back attracted the attention of the other examinees in the classroom. Who could have handed in the paper so early?!
Everyone subconsciously glanced over.
— Oh, it was Shen Li. That was fine then.
Everyone quickly looked away and continued to answer the questions.
Shen Li placed the exam paper on the podium, picked up her backpack, and walked out.
She took out her phone and saw that she had received a message from He Xiaochen.
[ Ah Li! I’ve arrived at school! Are you in the lab? I’ll come to look for you! ]
She knew that Shen Li had come to school early and that she had pretty much stayed in the lab most of the time, so that’s what she asked her directly.
The two of them had not seen each other during the winter break. Since He Xiaochen had just arrived at school, she immediately came to look for her.
Shen Li called her back.
He Xiaochen quickly answered the call.
When Shen Li heard the voices of other girls in the background, she understood.
“You’re in the dormitory?”
“I have something to take care of this morning. It might be a while before I’m free.”
He Xiaochen was stunned.
“Huh, what’s up?”
Shen Li said,
“I have a specialized course exam at ten.”
He Xiaochen, “Is this the exam for the course that you applied for exemption previously?”
‘ “God of Learning”, is this what you meant by “Something to take care of”?’
Shen Li said, “Yeah, it will end at about ten-thirty. I’ll go over to look for you after the exam.”
He Xiaochen said, “Then, why don’t I go over to look for you? I don’t have anything to do here anyway! Send me the exam venue. I’ll look for you after you’re almost done with the exam!”
Shen Li laughed.
“There’s no need. I brought you a gift and left it at the laboratory. I’ll go back after the exam and bring it for you.”
He Xiaochen’s eyes sparkled.
“Thank you, Ah Li!”
Shen Li decided on a time with her before He Xiaochen hung up the phone.
A female voice came from the side.
“Were you just on the phone with Shen Li?”
