Di Shanshi peered at Ye Tianxin through his glasses. Since he shared a desk with her, he was very much aware of the change that had recently taken place in Ye Tianxin.
He reasoned that Ye Tianxin mustve encountered something pretty dire to have practically grown up overnight.
“I can find out for you. However, the law states that only people who are eighteen and above have civil liability. I dont think youre eighteen yet, are you”
“Im almost eighteen. I can prepare the required information and documentation before I turn eighteen.” Furtively, Ye Tianxin pulled Di Shanshi aside to sit by a flower bed and said, “Di Shanshi, Ill be honest with you. I saw a surveyor team at the crossroad near our school. As you know, theres only me and my grandmother in our family, and Im worried about people scheming to get their hands on our house.”
Di Shanshi hadnt expected Ye Tianxin to confide in him about such private matters.
His heart fluttered with happiness. Did this mean that Ye Tianxin regarded him as a friend
As someone who had died once, Ye Tianxin knew better than anyone the importance of being prepared and nipping a growing problem in the bud.
Auntie Zhus motive couldnt have been more obvious.
Ye Tianxins rationale was that if Auntie Zhu couldnt fool her grandmother with the offer to be her caregiver in her old age, shed surely find another way to mislead and trap her grandmother.
Her grandmother was old and an easy target for scams.
Ye Tianxin wasnt the least interested in her grandmothers bit of property. However, she didnt want her grandmother to be cheated by others in her naivety.
Not to mention the fact that Grandma had lived in that place for decades and had grown emotionally attached to it.
And it was her home too. She couldnt let her home be destroyed...
Just in case her mother returned one day.
“We must never let our guard down. Di Shanshi, please find out for me. Thank you.”
To Di Shanshi, this request wasnt too big of a deal. It was something he could easily get done, so he saw no reason to refuse his help.
In fact, when he got home last night, he had shared his thoughts with his parents.
He told them that he wanted to apply for admission to Capital University.
He said that hed re-sit the entrance exams if he couldnt make it on the first attempt and that it was his dream to continue his studies at Capital University.
Actually, that wasnt why.
He wanted to sit the entrance exams for Capital University because of the girl whose smile was as sweet as maple syrup. He wanted to be there with her and bask in the glory of studying at Capital University.
He wanted to be a first-hand witness to everything she did.
“We share the same desk in class. You dont need to be so formal with me.”
One behind the other, they filed into the classroom. Noticing Ye Tianxin, Li Xiaohui announced in her gentle voice, “Tianxin, the homeroom teacher wants to see you.”
“Ill bring your school bag in for you.”
Handing her school bag to Di Shanshi, Ye Tianxin walked toward the teachers office. “Sir.”
The homeroom teacher glanced at Ye Tianxin and asked, “Where were you last night”
“I was in the classroom all last night,” Ye Tianxin replied, not knowing that Ye Youran had lied about her whereabouts. “Sir, what is it”
“The recruitment teacher at the Film Academy called for you last night...”
Ye Tianxin was stunned. They called her last night, barely two hours after she submitted her email application. They seemed super-efficient, almost too efficient to believe.
“The recruitment teacher said that they have received your email and that you should go for a preliminary interview on March 18.”
March 18. That was only three days away.
Ye Tianxin did the math in her head. Since the trains ran through the town of Jiameng, she could catch the train directly from the Jiameng station. The journey would take two days and two nights, which meant that she and her grandmother would have to catch the train that night. If they missed the train, she wouldnt be able to attend her preliminary interview.
