There were no more classes after that. After leaving the teaching building, Gu Jue walked Ruan An’an to the entrance of the dormitory.
—Yin Yuan was a graduate student at University C and applied for a single room in order to save up on commuting time. Ruan An’an always explained to the class that she was living with a graduate student friend, which was why she was not assigned to the class dormitory.
Moreover, she would sometimes squeeze in with Yin Yuan in her room whenever there was a lunch break in between classes.
The postgraduate dormitory was near the third east gate. Ruan An’an did not go home directly after school because she was supposed to go to Lin’s house for dinner.
It was only dinner in name, but in fact, she was going to be reprimanded.
“…What did you do after returning to China? Huh? I heard that you rarely go to the company. I only asked you to go sign a contract and now you’re not even around. What’s the use of graduating from Harvard? What’s the use of coming out of a six-year education in just three years? That game is indeed very beneficial, but still, you can’t just ignore the company for that game!”
Ruan An’an tried to argue, “I can’t even work officially if I go anyway…”
“Shut your mouth!” Lin Songbai roared, “Don’t interrupt me when you are being lectured! Can you be more sensible, child? If you interfere with your teacher in a lecture, then you must be lectured even more!”
Ruan An’an retorted unconsciously, “I haven’t been lectured by any of my teachers since I was young. They all like me.”
“…” You still chose to go head-on with me, huh?
So Ruan Anan’s lecture time was extended further from 20 minutes to another 20 minutes, and by the end of the meal, Lin Songbai was barely forced to shut up.
After dinner, Ruan An’an chatted with her grandmother for a long time, while the old man next to them was silent with a stone-cold face.
Ruan An’an looked at the wall clock and found that it was time to leave. At the same time, the old man received a call from an old friend, which improved his mood a lot.
At such elderly age, conversations were mostly reminiscent of the past, and some occasional discussion about the family and the juniors.
Ruan An’an heard Lin Songbai’s strong voice, “Ah, I have one who studied abroad in my family… not Cambridge, no, no, it’s Harvard.”
Wait, is he talking about me?
Ruan An’an perked up her ears –
“Yes, Harvard is pretty good too, yes… Oh, it’s just a junior. We haven’t seen each other for so many years, you wouldn’t know her.”
Immediately afterward, Lin Songbai, who kept claiming “what’s the use of studying” earlier, was now boasting in a casual but ostentatious tone, “Huh, she completed her six-year course at Harvard in three years. Although I didn’t expect her to finish so fast, it’s only just so-so…”
The tone he used to say the word “so-so” greatly implicated “super awesome”.
Grandma was shaking with silent laughter, while Ruan An’an was speechless.
The little old man has two faces.
At the end of the day, although it was a happy ending, she still had to take some practical actions as a punishment – just like doing written lines of “I should not be thinking about anything other than studies” when a teacher caught someone using a cell phone to write a confession to the class belle.
Therefore, before rushing to the basketball game, Ruan An’an was ordered to go to the [Fan Lin] office and shouldered the arduous task of handing in a thousand-character report to President Lin.
