Fang Tong glanced at Ding Minghui’s leaving back and wanted to chase after him, but when she looked at her parents, the anger in her heart rose, “Dad, Mom, how can you say that about him? He has worked very hard. He has worked a thousand times, ten thousand times harder than Li Boming. Compared with Li Boming, he is only lacking in family background. If he had Li Boming’s background, his current achievements must be higher than Li Boming. You guys should have considered his feelings when you say this about him?”
“If he had Li Boming’s background, I definitely would have no objection, but the question is, does he have it? What else does he have besides a bunch of empty words? You have to wait for him for three years or five years, Fang Tong, I will still say the same thing, I disagree with you being with him.” Fang Tong was angry, and Fu Fanghua was even angrier.
Fang Tong stomped her feet, “If you don’t agree, I will still be with him. Even if he is a poor man with nothing, I still love him, and I will marry him.”
Fang Tong ran out, she was going to go explain to Ding Minghui.
Fu Fanghua was trembling with anger, but her daughter had already run away, and she had nowhere to vent her anger, so her husband became the best fish in the pond, “Fang Chengzhi, have you seen your good daughter? What did she say, I am snobbish, who is my snobbery for, is it for myself?”
Fang Chengzhi patted his wife on the back, “Okay, you don’t know Tongtong’s temper, you are still so exciting, she can’t grow up with that boy, don’t worry.”
Fu Fanghua’s anger suddenly extinguished by half, and she looked at her husband suspiciously, “What do you mean by that, what do you mean can’t grow up?”
Fang Chengzhi smiled without saying a word, “Anyway, you just need to know that they won’t grow together. The dishes are all ordered, don’t waste them, let’s eat first.”
Fu Fanghua glared at her husband angrily, “Are you still in the mood to eat? You still have the mood to eat.”
“If you want me to tell you, don’t think too much. Tongtong is a smart child. She can’t figure it out now, but she will figure it out sooner or later. Just eat.”
“I can’t eat.”
Fang Chengzhi didn’t care about her and just ate by himself.
When Fang Tong caught up with Ding Minghui, he had just walked to the door and went to the counter to pay the bill. He paid more than 1,800 for a meal, which was already a third of his internship salary. It would be a lie to say that he didn’t feel sorry for himself.
Ding Minghui heard someone calling him from behind, so he stopped and saw Fang Tong, “Why did you come out?”
“I’ll go with you.”
Ding Minghui smiled, “I’m fine, you go in and talk to uncle and aunt. I’ll just go back to the company to work overtime.”
Fang Tong tugged on Ding Minghui’s sleeve to prevent him from leaving, “Minghui, don’t mind what my parents say, they just…just…they didn’t mean anything malicious. “
Ding Minghui looked gentle, “I know, uncle and aunt just care about you, worrying that you will suffer if you follow me, I understand, if it were me, I would be worried too, I didn’t take it to heart. It’s too cold outside, you didn’t even wear a coat when you come out, go in quickly, don’t catch a cold.”
“Are you really not angry?”
Ding Minghui shook his head, “Not angry, go in quickly. I’ll go first.” Saying this, he kissed Fang Tong on the forehead and turned away.
Just after turning around, the smile on his face disappeared. He was a proud person, perhaps because of his childhood living environment, his self-esteem was stronger than others.
He listened to what Fang Tong’s parents said today. They looked down on him, but one day he would prove himself and prove that Fang Tong was not wrong in choosing him.
Fang Tong returned to the box, still unhappy, then she took her coat and bag and left without saying anything to her parents, Fu Fanghua was still angry, so she ignored her and pretended she hadn’t seen her.
Shen Qinglan felt unwell when she woke up in the morning. She went to the bathroom and found that she was on her period.
When she came out of the bathroom, her phone rang, Shen Qinglan picked it up, it was Fu Hengyi who was calling, “Hello.”
“Are you up?” Fu Hengyi asked, he estimated the time to call, so he shouldn’t disturb her sleep.
“Well, it’s been a while.” She didn’t say she just woke up, she drew until four o’clock in the morning last night, and she was woken up by a stomach ache shortly after she fell asleep.
Fu Hengyi knew that she would occasionally draw at night, but she was not allowed to stay up late, because he would nag, so she just stopped telling him.
“Is it your period?” Fu Hengyi asked suddenly.
Shen Qinglan picked up the phone and took a look. Was this person a magic stick? He could pinch and count fortunes.
She didn’t speak, but Fu Hengyi could guess it, and smiled, “In the compound or at home?”
“I also put a hand warmer in the second drawer from the left of the bedside table at home, remember to plug it in later, and then I put ginger brown sugar water in the refrigerator, remember to make a drink.”
Shen Qinglan held the phone, listening to Fu Hengyi’s detailed account of the anecdote, there was a faint smile on the corner of her mouth.
“I’ve already contacted that old Chinese doctor. She will come back from other places in a week. I have made an appointment. You will ask Aunt Zhao to accompany you there.” Fu Hengyi finally said.
“No, I can go by myself, just send me the address.”
“If you don’t want Aunt Zhao to accompany you, then ask your friend to accompany you.” Fu Hengyi only thought she was embarrassed.
Seeing his persistence, Shen Qinglan had no choice but to nod.
And when that day came, Shen Qinglan wasn’t been able to see a doctor. At this time, she was already far away in a small border town in the west, only a hundred meters away from Fu Hengyi.
After finishing the call with Fu Hengyi, Shen Qinglan ate breakfast first, and then made a cup of ginger and brown sugar water. Remembering Fu Hengyi’s nagging, she went to the bedroom to get a hand warmer, charged it up, and put it on her stomach, not to mention, she felt much more comfortable, even her pale face turned rosy.
In the afternoon, Shen Qinglan went to the school, first went to the counsellor’s office, and then went to her mentor, and handed over the foreign language translation and graduation thesis to him.
This was the first time Shen Qinglan had appeared on campus since her identity was exposed. The moment she appeared, she caused a great commotion. She didn’t know who posted her photo on the forum. Everyone knew that she was back.
The mentor casually flipped through her foreign language translations. From being careless at the beginning to being surprised later, he glanced at Shen Qinglan and pointed to the manuscript in his hand, “How long did it take you to translate this article?”
Shen Qinglan thought for a while, “Half an hour.” It took a little time to type out the words one by one.
The instructor was even more surprised. Did she just translate it after reading it once?
“Your English is good?” If her English was not good, I’m afraid it would be impossible to be so fast.
“It’s not bad.” English was like a mother tongue to her, and it couldn’t be said to be good or bad.
The instructor only thought of her as being modest, he already knew the identity of the person in front of him, the daughter of the Shen family in the capital, the well-known painter Leng Qingqiu.
“My daughter likes your paintings very much. When she came back from your art exhibition last time, she knew that you were my student, so she wanted to see you all the time. I wonder if classmate Shen can meet her?” The mentor put down the manuscript and said another thing, the smile on his face was very kind.
For more than three years in college, this mentor was also her department head, and he took good care of her. She occasionally skipped his class, but he never remembered it. Although Shen Qinglan didn’t care about those rumours, she accepted it.
“I’ll treat Teacher Zhang and your daughter to dinner this weekend. Thank you for taking care of me for so many years.” Shen Qinglan said in a cold tone.
The instructor smiled, “I’ll invite you, anyway, I’m the elder.”
Shen Qinglan followed the advice, and came out of the office after making an appointment with the instructor.
When she came out of the mentor’s office, all she saw was a dark crowd, with hot eyes on every young face, all staring at her at this moment.
Although Shen Qinglan looked calm, her heart was slightly trembling, what was happening?
“What are you all doing here?” she asked.
“Senior Qinglan, can I take a photo with you and get an autograph?” A girl shyly said, still holding a mobile phone and a notebook in her hand.
“Sorry, I don’t take photos with people.” Shen Qinglan refused, and the girl’s face was obviously disappointed, “But I can sign an autograph for you.”
Before the disappointment on her face could dissipate, the girl’s face was filled with ecstasy, “Really?”
Without waiting for Shen Qinglan to nod, she hastily handed over the pen and notebook. Shen Qinglan took it, opened it, and signed it. The signature was Leng Qingqiu.
“Senior Qinglan, thank you. I am from the art department, and my favourite painter is you.” The girl looked excited, and looked at Shen Qinglan with more fiery and admiring eyes.
Seeing this, other people swarmed up, “Senior Qinglan, I want an autograph too.”
“Go away, I came first. Senior sister Qinglan, I like you.”
“How come you came first, obviously I came first, Senior Sister Qinglan, I like you too, I am your loyal fan.”
The scene became chaotic, and the voices of people were all around, Shen Qinglan was having a little bit of headache, so she slightly frowned.
She don’t know who suddenly yelled, “Stop arguing, senior sister Qinglan will be unhappy.” The scene immediately became quiet, looking at Shen Qinglan with fearful eyes.
It was finally quiet, and Shen Qinglan breathed a sigh of relief. She was used to being watched by others because of her appearance, but this was the first time that they had acted like a fan like today, and she really couldn’t stand it.
Looking around, she said softly, “You all want to take a photo with me and an autograph?”
A group of people nodded in unison, and one of them said, “Most of us are from the Academy of Fine Arts, and we all like your paintings. We know you came to school today, that’s why we want to meet you, we are all your fans.”
The others nodded, yes, that’s it.
“Group photos are not allowed, and you can’t take pictures, but I can sign autographs for you, but you can’t be messy, and don’t make too much noise, okay?” Shen Qinglan discussed, if it was her usual, she would definitely not do this kind of thing.
“Okay, we will be absolutely keep quiet.” A group of people lined up spontaneously, waiting for Shen Qinglan to sign their names one by one.
It was already an hour later when Shen Qinglan finished giving everyone autographs, then rubbing her sore wrists, Shen Qinglan hurriedly left the school before others noticed.
