Chapter 932 - You Can’t Always Rely on Ah Li
“Yes, that’s it,” said Wen Xiao as he turned to look at her, “However, ever since that book was lost, you don’t seem to bring it into the car anymore.”
Shen Li continued to look calm. She stepped lightly on the accelerator and the car moved forward.
“Speaking of which, this matter is also my fault. I shouldn’t have taken you to Yanhui Hill that day…” Wen Xiao suddenly paused as he said this, as if he did not want to talk about those things in the past. “Later, I said that I would buy you another book, but you didn’t want it either.”
Shen Li looked ahead and said calmly, “I didn’t take good care of it myself. It’s not Uncle Wen’s fault. And that book–”
That book could be considered an introductory book to astrophysics. She had read it so many times that she had almost memorized it.
Moreover, at that time, she had already started studying with Xu Yin and had started to take over the observatory in Lincheng.
The documents that she usually read were more specialized and profound.
The reason she had always brought that book along was because her Grandma had saved up for a long time just to buy it for her.
Of course, it was different.
Since that book was lost, there was no point in buying a new one.
Wen Xiao knew what she meant. He ran his hand over his buzz cut but did not continue talking about it.
Of course, he knew how important that book had been to her, so he had gone back to look for it carefully later. Unfortunately, he had not been able to find anything.
Shen Li changed the topic.
“Uncle Wen, today is your first day at LY. You should control your temper.”
Wen Xiao waved his hand and looked out of the window. With a look that made him seem older and deep, he said, “Don’t worry. I’ve been cultivating my body for the past ten years. I’m not the same person as before.”
Two hours later, Wen Xiao stood at LY’s training track and stared at the electronic screen that recorded the results. His arms were crossed in front of him although he did not say a word.
All the members of LY’s team, including the substitutes, stood neatly behind him.
No one could hide the excitement on their faces.
This was Wen Xiao!
He was the only legendary big shot in the country who had even won the World Championships!
Many people had become interested in car racing because of him and become professional racers.
It was not an exaggeration to say that many people idolized him.
Now, this person, who had only existed in distant legends, was standing in front of them, alive!
He had even become their head coach!
Who would not be excited?
The racers from other clubs were so envious!
However, why was he keeping silent?
Lu Siyu could not hold himself back. He nudged Ji Shu with his elbow and gave him a look.
Wen Xiao had come over this morning. After signing the contract, he had asked all the team members to gather for a test run.
However, the test run was now over, yet he was still staring at the electronic screen. What did that mean?
Ji Shu looked at the expression on his face, which was full of anticipation for Wen Xiao’s comments, and the corners of his mouth twitched.
A newborn calf was not afraid of a tiger, but an ignorant person was fearless.
If it were not for the fact that it was not appropriate for him to leave now, he would have already found an excuse to escape!
Thinking of this, he glanced over at Wen Xiao.
Fortunately, Sister Li was still there.
Otherwise, he really did not know what would happen today.
Seeing that Ji Shu could not move, Lu Siyu and the others looked at Shen Li again.
Shen Li received their message. After hesitating for a moment, she finally said, “Uncle Wen, everyone’s first test run results are out. Would you like to say a few words?”
Wen Xiao finally withdrew his gaze from the electronic screen and looked at Shen Li. Expressionlessly, he said,”If I terminate the contract now, how much is the penalty for breaching the contract?”
Everyone was flabbergasted.
Shen Li paused and pointed three fingers at him.
Wen Xiao’s vision went black and he blurted out, “F*ck.”
Shen Li said, “Uncle Wen, you said that you have cultivated your body and mind. Didn’t you say that you are no longer the person you used to be?”
Wen Xiao endured it again and again until he really could not take it anymore.
“Just consider it as me feeding the dog for ten years!”
Shen Li went silent.
Wen Xiao took his cigarette case out and walked over to the side. He sat down on the bench and bitterly lit up a cigarette.
He was worried.
He had never been so worried in his life.
Lu Siyu and the others looked over and finally felt a little uneasy.
“Sister Li, Coach Wen doesn’t seem to be in a good mood.”
Shen Li comforted them.
“It’s okay. Just let him have a cigarette to calm down first.”
Five minutes later, Wen Xiao finally stood up and stubbed out the cigarette.
For the next half an hour, Wen Xiao’s voice echoed throughout the training grounds.
“Throttle! Throttle! Does your car have no throttle or two brakes?!”
“I told you to look for the turning point! Where are you looking at?!”
“Tell me, are you having trouble differentiating between gears?”
“I already said it a few times, but you’re still not listening. Why don’t I just drive for you?”
The only one who survived was Shen Li.
She did not actually race. Instead, she only watched from the side. She watched as the expressions of all the team members went from excitement and anticipation to nervousness, then on to guilt and self-reproach, and eventually to numbness all over their faces.
They were dumbfounded. Really, they were all dumbfounded at being scolded.
Shen Li looked at Lu Siyu and the others, who were on the verge of tears, and could not help but feel some sympathy for them.
Actually, before this, she had always felt that Wen Xiao’s temper had improved a lot over the years.
However, reality had proven that it was all just an illusion.
He was already so much older, yet he still had such a violent temper.
Especially when he stood on the track, the damage of his aggressiveness multiplied.
A voice came from behind.
Shen Li turned around and saw that it was Gu Siyang.
“Brother, why are you here?”
Gu Siyang looked at the field with a complicated expression on his face.
“I… Originally, I wanted to come and listen to the training lesson… but looking at it now, I think it’s better to forget it… forget it…”
Previously, he had thought that if he could just get Wen Xiao’s guidance, the level of his own skills would definitely skyrocket.
But now, he realized that he had made a huge mistake.
He even suspected that he would be banned from entering the race track by Wen Xiao and dirtying his place, let alone improve on his skills.
Shen Li comforted him.
“It’s important to know your limits.”
Gu Siyang looked at her with a complicated expression.
“Sister, you should praise me in another way. This– I can’t take it.”
In a private psychological clinic in the Capital.
Gu Tinglan handed over the examination report in his hand.
“Overall, your condition has improved.”
Lu Huaiyu took it but did not look at it.
He knew his own condition the best.
Gu Tinglan stared at him for a few seconds before suddenly saying,”However, I still suggest that you take medicine and receive regular psychological treatment.
“You can’t always rely on Ah Li.”
