Chapter 778 - And Other News
Shen Li, “…”
She felt that if Shen Zhijin heard this, he might not be too happy.
“Teacher Shen seems to be quite busy lately?”
Lu Huaiyu held the bags containing the desserts in one hand while he intertwined his fingers with hers as they walked out of the door.
“Yes, Senior Brother Tang Yi’s thesis has just been submitted. In addition, Senior Brother Yan Qiu is about to graduate, and he still has two more papers to revise.”
Being able to become Shen Zhijin’s student was the dream of countless astronomy students.
Yan Qiu and the others were all outstanding among them. Otherwise, they would not have been chosen by Shen Zhijin.
However, correspondingly, they had to put in several times more effort than any others.
Just this aspect of graduation requirements alone was higher than all the other professors in the entire academy.
Recently, the amount of Tang Yi and Yan Qiu’s hair was in grave danger. Shen Li had even seen an express delivery of hair tonic at 601 two days ago.
“Shall I send you back to the school dormitory first?”
Xue Lang and Ding Yu were probably already looking forward to her return.
Just as Shen Li finished speaking, she saw a few figures walking out of the building in front of her.
The person in front of her was none other than Yu Yu, followed by her secretary and the other people that they had met while they had been waiting for the elevator earlier. They were all employees of the Yu Corporation.
Yu Yu’s expression did not look too good. Her high heels thumped on the ground as she stomped ahead.
Her secretary and the others quietly followed behind her. Sensing her anger, they did not dare to take a deep breath, for fear of being bringing her wrath upon them.
Today’s negotiation was supposed to have been a sure thing, but in the end, it had not gone well.
Zhao Xuan was young, and Shengguang Media had only just been established. Yu Yu had thought that this collaboration would be easily achieved, but Zhao Xuan had been far more difficult to deal with than she had expected.
It was as if they had already anticipated the conditions that Yu Corporation would be offering and had slowly pressed back little by little.
In the past two years, Yu Yu’s work had been going smoothly. This time, she had suffered a loss and was under constant pressure from the other party. Of course, this made her feel uncomfortable.
In the end, it had not worked out.
Finally, the secretary could not help but say softly, “President Yu, actually, Vice-President Zhao has not indicated a definite no yet. We can still continue to negotiate…”
Yu Yu stopped in her tracks and silently sneered.
It was easy to say.
However, if they were to give them more benefits, the Yu Corporation would not be happy.
Many people knew that she had come here and were expecting her to return with a beautiful contract.
Initially, she had made up her mind to take advantage of this opportunity to stabilize her position in the Yu Corporation.
If she returned just like that, she did not know how those old geezers in the company would mock her.
The more she thought about it, the more frustrated she became.
Just then, someone behind her whispered.
“Isn’t that President Lu?”
Yu Yu looked up and indeed saw the two people standing side by side, not far away.
One was tall and handsome, while the other was tall and slender.
It was Lu Huaiyu and Shen Li.
Lu Huaiyu was still carrying the bags from the dessert store. It looked like the two of them had just come out of the shop.
“President Yu, should we go over and say hello?” The secretary asked.
Yu Yu was thoughtful, tactful, and maintained a good relationship network.
Hence, even though she was in a bad mood, she quickly adjusted her expression and walked over.
“President Lu, Shen Li.”
Yu Yu and the rest quickly walked over with appropriate smiles on their faces.
“I thought you had already returned to school. I didn’t expect to bump into you here. Did President Lu… come all the way here to accompany you?”
Lu Huaiyu lazily replied.
Shen Li looked at Yu Yu. Although she had a smile on her face, she had not looked too pleasant when she had come out of the building.
It seemed like the negotiations had not gone well.
Yu Yu looked at the time.
“Since we happened to bump into each other and it’s almost time for dinner, why don’t we have a meal together?”
She controlled her expression and tone very well. She was polite but not rude. Coupled with her generous smile, very few people would reject her.
However, Lu Huaiyu did not seem to be interested.
He raised his eyebrows slightly and looked behind them.
“According to what I know, President Yu came here today to discuss a collaboration with Shengguang Media, right? Why isn’t President Yu with them now?”
Yu Yu’s expression froze.
She was well-known for being good at socializing within the business circles. However, even though she had come here today, the fact that she had not stayed to have a meal with the people at Shengguang Media made it obvious that the deal had not worked out.
Shen Li’s phone rang.
“Tangtang, are you staying at school or coming home tonight?”
“I’ll be staying at home. I bought dessert for you, but I’ll be a little late. I have to go back to the dormitory first.”
“I’m at school. Shall I pick you up later?”
Shen Li hung up the phone and looked at Yu Yu.
“Miss Yu, I’m sorry. We have to take our leave first.”
Yu Yu forced a smile.
“Okay, then let’s make an appointment to meet again next time.”
Lu Huaiyu did not seem to have much patience. He held Shen Li’s hand as he led her away.
After taking a few steps, Shen Li heard Yu Yu’s voice from behind.
She narrowed her eyes and turned around to take a look.
Yu Yu’s tone was obviously much warmer and intimate.
“… I haven’t returned yet. I’m still in the Capital. Hmm? You’re here too?”
Naturally, the only brother who could make her use this tone of voice was Yu Cheng.
Yu Yu paused for a moment and smiled.
“Then send me your location. I’ll come over to look for you. Alright, I’ll see you later.”
As she spoke, she hung up the phone. Her eyelids drooped slightly, hiding the trace of disgust in her eyes.
She had run around for so many days and spent so much energy, just for one project. However, Yu Cheng did not need to do anything. The main theme of his daily life was just to eat, drink, and have fun.
With just one phone call, not only did she have to go over, but she also had to meet his group of scoundrel friends.
However, this… was also good.
She put away her phone.
Shen Li averted her gaze.
Yu Cheng was also in the Capital.
Oh, the rally was about to start, so of course, he had to come.
Looking at the timeline, the news of FN being involved in drugs seemed to have been exposed after the rally had ended?
It should be happening quite soon.
