The Little Brat’s Sweet And Sassy

Chapter 878 - Children at Home  

Chapter 878: Children at Home

“It’s a pity that I couldn’t attend the ‘Embrace of a Star’ show.”

Bella was still filled with regret at the mention of this matter.

She was supposed to have gone, but something had happened that morning that had caused her to be delayed. She had no other choice except to miss it and was only to watch the live broadcast on her phone.

Even watching it on the live broadcast, the show had still been perfect, yet it could not be compared to the live broadcast.

As Bella spoke, her gaze finally landed on Lu Huaiyu, who was standing at the side. She unashamedly sized him up with a critical eye.

“So, this is your boyfriend?”

Shen Li nodded.

Lu Huaiyu took the initiative to extend his hand, smiling lightly.

“Hello, I’m Lu Huaiyu.”

Bella very lightly shook his hand.

“I know who you are.”

As she spoke, she raised her eyebrows.

“This time, Carroll’s words are somewhat believable.”

Carroll had spoken very highly of Lu Huaiyu before, but she had never taken him seriously before.

It was only now that she was meeting him in person that she felt a little more convinced.

However, of course, he still could not be compared to Shen Li.

Naturally, Lu Huaiyu understood what she meant, but he just smiled without saying anything.

Bella looked at Shen Li again.

“How long will you be staying in Bai City this time?”

“About a week or so. I’ll leave after the G&S Men’s fashion show ends.”

“So early?”

“Yeah, I took a leave of absence this time. I still have to go back to school.”

Bella’s expression became subtle.

“I remember that you attend Xijing University, right? So even though Shen Zhijin is now the vice principal, you still needed to take a leave of absence? When I think about how many classes he skipped back then, yet now, he’s so strict with you.”

Shen Li was speechless.

Without waiting for her reply, Bella waved her hand with a hint of disdain.

“Well, seeing that the reason he skipped classes was for your mother’s sake… Let’s just forget about it.”

Shen Li silently swallowed back the rest of her words.

Bella looked at her for a little while longer before saying, “Come over to visit when you have some time free later.”

Shen Li was just about to nod when she was suddenly stunned.

“Your house–”

Again, Bella gave her a noble and cool smile.

“Hmm? Did I forget to tell you? Carroll is my husband.”

Shen Li said, “… Okay, thank you, Aunt Bella.”

Bella then reluctantly said goodbye to her.

She had just taken a few steps when she turned around again and saw Lu Huaiyu and Shen Li walking out hand in hand.

Lu Huaiyu had lowered his head slightly and leaned close to Shen Li’s ear. She did not know what was being said, but Shen Li’s sparkling peach blossom eyes curved up, shining with a shimmering light.

Bella put on her sunglasses and snorted.

“… This child is obviously more like Yin Yin. That kid from the Lu family is really lucky.”

In the afternoon, Shen Li and Lu Huaiyu went to the headquarters of Fino Laboratory together.

The scale of this place was much larger than the Capital branch. The conditions and other aspects of this laboratory were among the best in the world.

Shen Zhijin met them at the entrance and personally took them inside for a tour.

Along the way, they met quite a number of people.

After walking for a while, Shen Li could not help but ask in a lowered tone, “Dad, are the headquarters… always so lively?”

Shen Zhijin’s expression was calm.

“No. It’s just that those who were supposed to be on leave today have all come over.”

Shen Li was at a loss for words.

Sure enough, every few steps that she took, she would encounter someone who would greet them enthusiastically.

Shen Zhijin smiled and said, “Don’t think too much about it. They just want to see you.”

When they heard that he was bringing his daughter over, everyone who was in Fino Laboratory headquarters had been restless for the past few days.

Firstly, Shen Zhijin had been a loner all these years. Now that he suddenly had a daughter, it was natural that everyone was curious.

Secondly, Shen Li had previously published a thesis in Universe, breaking Shen Zhijin’s record, so it was even more of a reason for them to want to see her in person…

Shen Li understood.

Those who were qualified to enter this place were definitely top-notch talents in the field of astrophysics research.

These people usually had extremely high IQs, were obsessed with scientific research and had pure temperaments.

She could feel that they were all very friendly to her.

“The atmosphere here is very nice,” she said.

Shen Zhijin responded with a “Hmm”. After a moment, he said,”If you’re interested, you can consider coming here in the future.”

Shen Li nodded.

At this moment, a happy voice sounded.

“Zhijin.”

Shen Li looked up when she heard the voice.

Shen Zhijin was the general director of Fino Laboratory. Everyone that they had encountered so far had addressed him very politely and respectfully. This was the first person who had called Shen Zhijin by his personal name.

The person who appeared was around fifty years old. He was a slightly plump man who was wearing a white lab coat and an amiable smile on his face.

When Shen Zhijin saw him, a faint smile appeared on his face.

“Professor Angus.”

Shen Li instantly understood the identity of this person.

He was the second-in-command of Fino Laboratory.

When he and Shen Zhijin had entered the headquarters of Fino Laboratory one after the other, the two of them had formed a very good relationship.

Shen Li had heard Shen Zhijin mention his name before, but this was the first time she had actually seen him.

As Angus looked at her, his smile deepened.

“This is your daughter, right?”

Shen Li called out to him,”Hello, Professor Angus.”

Angus winked at her.

“Finally, you’re here.”

Shen Li was stunned. She found what he said a little strange.

Angus continued,”I’ve read your previous paper before. It’s really well written! It was really worth my effort to send those papers all the way over!”

Shen Zhijin seemed to be a little surprised.

“You sent information to Tangtang?”

Surely this was the first time he had seen her.

Shen Li was also stunned. Then, she thought of something and turned her head to look at Lu Huaiyu.

She had borrowed a few books from him in the past.

Some of them had not been published in China yet at that time. When Lu Huaiyu had given them to her, she had been secretly puzzled.

However, it turns out…

That he had specially borrowed them from Professor Angus?

Sure enough, in the next moment, Angus smiled and said, “Actually, they were sent to Huaiyu! At that time, I was puzzled. He had read those books before, so why did he want them again? Later, it occurred to me that he must have specially requested those books for Shen Li!”

For a year, Lu Huaiyu had followed him at the headquarters of Fino Laboratory.

Angus admired him greatly. Later, when Lu Huaiyu returned to his own country, Angus had been very sorry to see him go.

Lu Huaiyu nodded and smiled faintly,”Many thanks to you.”

Shen Zhijin listened and also glanced at him.

Some documents were difficult to find in China. Lu Huaiyu must have specifically asked Angus for help.

“It was just a small matter. What’s there to thank?”

As Angus spoke, he looked at Shen Li with great emotion.

“Let’s see, I believe that you were in your third year of high school at that time?”

Shen Li nodded.

Angus laughed.

“Huaiyu even lied to me at that time, saying that the children at home liked it! Originally, I said that I would just send the Chinese version, but he had insisted upon the original version as well. If I had known earlier that it was for you, I would have chosen more and sent those to you!”

As soon as he finished speaking, there was a sudden silence.

After a long while, Shen Zhijin asked emotionlessly, “What?”
