Mount Li was famous for its lack of transportation. It was a completely undeveloped mountain forest. It was said that the Internet there had only been set up in the last two years.
Chi Jiao knew that Zhu Limin had misunderstood her, but she could not be bothered to explain. Instead, she just smiled and kept quiet.
“Yanyan, hurry up and get back to work.” Chi Mingwei regarded Chi Yan’s work at the S911 laboratory highly as well. After all, in the medical field of China, the S911 laboratory was one of the best. Being able to enter the S911 laboratory had brought honor to the Chi family.
Like a proud little peacock, Chi Yan stood up and glanced down at Chi Jiao with a look of arrogance and disdain. “Then, I’ll head off first. Jiaojiao, I’ll treat you to a meal when I am less busy.”
With that, Chi Yan left, her custom-made diamond heels clacking off into the distance.
“Jiaojiao, your school admission has been arranged. Daddy has arranged for you to attend the Xing Teng Academy, and you’ll be enrolled next Monday. What do you think?”
“Xing Teng Academy is the best elite academy in White City. Jiaojiao, your father spent a lot of effort and pulled a lot of strings to get you in. Look at how much he dotes on you.” Zhu Limin stared deeply at Chi Jiao.
Even if she went to Xing Teng Academy, this sparrow would never become a phoenix.
She was just playing the role of a clown.
This was Chi Jiao’s first genuine smile since she came here.
Xing Teng Academy. Quan Jue was in this school.
“Thank you, Dad.” The young lady’s bright smile was as hot as the sun.
Seeing Chi Jiao smiling so happily, Zhu Limin resisted the urge to roll her eyes at her.
She was indeed a small-minded country bumpkin, looking so happy the moment she heard that she was going to an elite school.
The youngster who had just walked into the living room instantly noticed the girl sitting on the sofa.
Her eyes were curved into crescents and her smile was as innocent as if she had never been tainted by the filth in this world.
He glanced at them indifferently for a moment before retracting his gaze. With his hands in his pockets, he walked towards the staircase.
Zhu Limin’s sharp eyes spotted the youngster. “Xiao Jue, come here.”
Quan Jue stopped in his tracks. His ink-black brows furrowed slightly as he turned to look at her.
“What’s the matter?” His deep voice was cold and distant.
Chi Jiao had already turned to look at Quan Jue the moment she heard Zhu Limin calling out his name.
Her fair hands grasping the edge of her sweater betrayed the nervous and complex emotions she was feeling at the moment.
The young man was not much different from what she remembered. In fact, he was even more dazzling than the person in her memories.
It was a cold day, but the young man only wore a thin white jacket, casual black pants, and a pair of casual shoes. He had a tall and thin physique.
His facial features were deep and his bone structure was extremely beautiful. His pair of black eyes were as bright as the stars.
The young man was so handsome that he looked like a rich painting. He looked aggressive, but the brown mole at the corner of his eye added some charm to him.
It was just that the aura around him was as cold as ice shards, rejecting anyone who dared to approach him.
In Chi Jiao’s memories from her previous life, she rarely interacted with Quan Jue. Every time they met, they would greet each other politely. At that time, she felt that this young man was too unapproachable. He was like the reincarnation of an iceberg.
Yet, such a person was willing to die for her.
Chi Mingwei’s smile dampened when he saw Quan Jue.
“Where did you go again?”
Quan Jue did not speak. It was obvious that he did not intend to answer Chi Mingwei’s question.
Chi Mingwei was also used to his adopted son’s cold attitude.
Wolves just could not be tamed.
Sighing, Chi Mingwei waved at him. “Come over and meet your younger sister.”
