The Little Brat’s Sweet And Sassy

Chapter 869 - I Understand  

Chapter 869: I Understand

Lu Huaiyou laughed and pushed the luggage over.

Shen Zhijin took it and walked to a black car that was parked by the roadside. He put Shen Li’s luggage into the trunk before turning to look at Shen Li.

“Tangtang, let’s go.”

Shen Li nodded and let go of Lu Huaiyu’s hand. Then, she bid him goodbye.

“Goodbye, Second Brother.”

There was a smile on the little girl’s face. It did not seem like there was the slightest bit of reluctance to part with him.

Lu Huaiyu stretched out his hand again and grabbed her slender wrist. He whispered to her, “Remember to miss me.”

Shen Li’s peach blossom eyes curved as she smiled.

“I’ll try.”

Lu Huaiyu had already guessed that she would answer this way. However, seeing how happy she was, he did not bother to argue with her.

Shen Li turned around and got into the passenger seat. She then waved at him again.

...

Lu Huaiyu laughed.

The black car slowly drove away.

Lu Huaiyu watched them leave until the car turned a corner and was no longer visible. Only then did he look away.

Just then, his cell phone rang.

He looked down and saw that it was Gu Tinglan calling.

He picked up the call.

Gu Tinglan’s voice came through the receiver.

“I’m in Bai City now. If you can spare some time in the afternoon, let’s meet up.”

Lu Huaiyu stopped walking.

“What’s the matter?”

Actually, he could guess Gu Tinglan’s purpose for coming here even without asking.

Gu Tinglan responded with a “Hmm”, but did not explain further.

The reason was clear to both of them.

In fact, Gu Tinglan had wanted to come here earlier, but he had been delayed by certain matters that he had to deal with first. It was today that he had finally managed to free up some time.

Although Lu Huaiyu had said that he was fine, and from all aspects, it seemed like there was nothing wrong with him, Gu Tinglan was still worried.

That day, he had called Lu Huaiyu three times, but he had not answered the call. Moreover, it had taken him a really long time before he had finally replied.

Gu Tinglan had felt uneasy.

The two of them fell silent.

After a while, Lu Huaiyu said, “Got it.”

Gu Tinglan asked, “Where’s Ah Li?”

Lu Huaiyu turned around to at the empty intersection. He said lazily, “She went home with Teacher Shen.”

“Shen Zhijin has already reached Bai City?”

Gu Tinglan was a little surprised, and his voice became much lighter.

“Then, that means that Ah Li went back to Corning Street with him? Will she continue to stay there then?”

“Yes. She just left.”

Lu Huaiyu paused before saying,”Gu Tinglan, you don’t have to show your happiness so obviously.”

Gu Tinglan smiled gently.

“I couldn’t help it. I’m sorry.”

Lu Huaiyu paused for a moment.

He suddenly regretted his earlier agreement to meet him now.

However, in the blink of an eye, something came to his mind again and his handsome face relaxed.

He said unhurriedly, “Send me the location of the meeting.”

Half an hour later, Shen Zhijin and Shen Li arrived at Corning Street.

This was a very famous street in Bai City with many years of history.

Individual villas were lined up on both sides of the street, which were both beautifully renovated and very unique.

Shen Zhijin parked his car in front of one of the white villas.

He pushed open the wooden fence door to reveal a lush green lawn in the courtyard and a camellia tree that was planted to his left.

It seemed to be quite old.

At this time, the tree was already dotted with red flower buds.

When the wind blew, the luxuriant branches and leaves swayed gently.

There was also a swing under the tree, with a few leaves on it.

Shen Li stood there for a long time.

Shen Zhijin walked over with her and her luggage.

“Tangtang, why don’t you go in?”

Shen Li came back to her senses and walked forward. She took out the key from her bag and opened the door.

This was a two-story villa. It looked very clean and tidy because Shen Zhijin had people that he hired to mow the lawn and clean the house regularly.

It just seemed a little cold.

However, upon entering, Shen Li found that this place looked the same as Shen Zhijin’s home in the Capital. It had been decorated very nicely and still looked like there was a family living here.

“Tangtang, there are bedrooms on the first and second floors. You can choose whichever one you like.”

“Okay.”

Shen Li took a look around the house and found that there were all kinds of adorable small trinkets everywhere.

On the cupboard at the entrance, there was a small ceramic figure in the posture of a bow with a few words in cursive writing written on the base: Welcome Home.

On the coffee table, there were a few colorful cups in geometric shapes. Shen Li counted them and found that there were exactly seven colors.

There were two bookshelves in the study, each occupying a wall.

There was a table in the middle, and a chair placed on each side of the table.

Shen Li glanced at the bookshelf on the left. There were many physics-related books there, while the one on the right… was filled with all kinds of comic books.

However, in the corner was something extra. There was a thick German edition of Physics World.

Physics World.

It seemed to be out of place with the entire bookshelf.

Shen Li was a little surprised.

It was clear who those comic books belonged to, but this one–

“Dad, why is this book here?”

Shen Zhijin walked over and handed her a glass of water. He turned his head to take a look and said, “Oh, I believe it was placed there after being read previously.”

Placed there after being read.

Then he must have been sitting on the seat on the right side to read it, right?

As if he could read her mind, Shen Zhijin said, “This was your mother’s book.”

Shen Li was stunned.

Shen Zhijin pointed to the bookshelf on the left.

“The ones on this side too.”

Shen Li was speechless.

After a moment of reaction, she swept her gaze across the entire row of books.

“Changes in Physics”

“Quantum Mechanics”

“Stars: From Birth to Death”

Her gaze slowly turned to the right.

“Moon and Star”

“Girl’s Magic”

“The Dark Night Deacon”

She was silent for a long time before she asked,

“Then these…”

Shen Zhijin said, “Mine.”

Shen Li was dumbfounded.

Shen Li took a sip of water. Then, she pulled out the book and said, “I didn’t expect Mom to be so interested in physics–”

Her voice suddenly stopped.

On the title page, there was a beautiful hand of words.

[ I don’t understand this. Five stars for difficulty. For Jin! ]

Shen Li stayed silent.

She quietly put the book back.

Her mother had not been interested in physics, she had just been interested in her father.

Shen Zhijin was calm.

He knew that Shen Li had seen the message on the title page. He thought for a moment, pointed to the bookshelf on the right, and said calmly, “Actually, I don’t understand these either.”

Shen Li nodded.

I understand.

Gu Tinglan used to attend high school in Bai City, so he had his own apartment here.

Lu Huaiyu went upstairs where Gu Tinglan was already waiting for him.

He poured some tea for Lu Huaiyu before asking carefully,”What happened to you that day?”
