Extraordinary Genius - Chapter 251 – Shanghai’s stock exchange opens
Feng Yu had not seen Wen Dongjun for more than a month, and this moron had grown taller.
Damn, are you feeding on pig’s feed? You are already so tall, and you are still growing? Feng Yu was not happy with raising his head to speak to him!
Feng Yu was already 1.76 meters and had been exercising these few years. With a better diet, he wished to reach 1.8 meters. But compared to Wen Dongjun, he was way shorter. Wen Dongjun was already 1.85 meters!
Feng Yu decided to give Wen Dongjun some “counseling” to make him give up basketball.
“Dongjun, come over here. I got something to talk to you.” After lunch, Feng Yu called Wen Dongjun.
“What’s there to talk about? Come, let’s go and play basketball.”
“I have some important matters to speak to you.”
Looking at Feng Yu’s serious expression, Wen Dongjun stopped: “What? Did Li Na ditch you?”
“Damn! I want to talk to you about your future. What’s your dream?” Feng Yu asked Wen Dongjun in a teacher’s tone.
“Be an official. An Official that is higher ranked than my father.”
Fine. This moron only wants to be an official for the sake of being one.
“Think carefully, have you ever met any officials that are taller than you?” Feng Yu continued asking.
“Eh, now that you mention it, I had never seen any officials that are as tall as me. Do you think I will be the tallest official in future?” Wen Dongjun asked excitedly.
Damn. Wait until you are taller than Yao Ming before talking to me. Yao Ming is the tallest official!
“Dongjun, think carefully. If your leader is only 1.7 meters and you are 1.9 meters, your leader will have to look up at you. If you are the leader, will you be happy?”
“You are saying that I cannot be a high ranking official because of my height?” Wen Dongjun asked.
“Sighed…… you finally get what I am trying to say. So, you must control your height.” Feng Yu was happy that Wen Dongjun finally understood.
“But I can’t control my growth. Last year, I was only 2 cm taller than you.” Wen Dongjun said.
Feng Yu: “……”
“Come, I will teach you something. Do a handstand every day and use your head to support yourself. Play less basketball and soccer. Do more weight training. Put more weights on your shoulders and do squats. If you really want to play with balls, play shotput…….”
Looking at Wen Dongjun doing “headstand”, Feng Yu smiled and walked towards the basketball court. He still wants to get taller……
After a game of basketball at noon, it was time for afternoon lessons. Feng Yu was listless and was nodding off.
The History teacher was talking about modern history, and Feng Yu was bored. Soon, he fell asleep on his desk.
“Feng Yu, Feng Yu, Teacher Hu is asking you to answer a question.” The student beside Feng Yu pushed him and waked him up.
“Feng Yu, you are sleeping in my class. You think you know everything? Answer the question I asked just now.”
Damn. What was the question? Can’t you repeat the question? I don’t even know what’s the question, how can I answer you? Feng Yu stood up. He was not nervous like other students when they were caught sleeping in class. Anyway, he was used to be sent out of class by the teachers.
“You don’t know the answer? Some student thinks that their family is rich, and they don’t need to study. Then why enter Third High School? Your parents sent you to this school is for you to have a good future by entering a good university. They don’t send you to school for you to sleep in class. Sit down and pay attention.”
Teacher Hu dare not to punish Feng Yu. Almost all the teachers knew that the principal was giving Feng Yu special treatments. They also heard that during the Soviet Union Summer Camp, Feng Yu did not follow the group at all. It was fortunate that she was not Feng Yu’s form teacher.
After class, Li Na went beside Feng Yu: “Next time don’t play basketball at noon. You will not be able to focus on the afternoon lessons.”
“Why are you not wearing the dress I bought for you from Hong Kong? You don’t like it?” Feng Yu changed the topic.
“The dress is too low cut.” Li Na blushed.
Feng Yu smiled. He remembered that China now was different from Hong Kong. Most girls in the city still dressed conservatively. They don’t dare to wear low cut dresses.
“Fine. I will get someone to send some dresses over. What designs do you like? You can dress up like those celebrities on TV too.”
“I do not want any more dresses.” Li Na was happy that Feng Yu treated her well, but she was afraid that other students will gossip about her. Although all the students and teachers at the school knew that she was dating Feng Yu, her parents still do not know.
“This evening, do you want to go to the garden on the north side? I heard there is a pond full of goldfishes there.” Feng Yu asked.
Li Na rolled her eyes: “You think you can see the goldfishes at night?”
Sighed…. Electricity was still a problem. There was not a single lamp post in the garden. At night, it was so dark that you can’t even see your own fingers.
Feng Yu missed his previous life where the streets were bright at night. But it will take at least 2 to 3 years before that will happen in the cities.
It was a pity that there were no KTV now. Although there was Karaoke, the Karaoke was only music and no pictures. It was still using cassette tapes.
Li Na saw Feng Yu thinking of where to go at night, she said: “We will be taking the University entrance exams next year. We should start our preparations now and not thinking of where to play. What if we can’t enter university?”
This was a sign of her being a controlling wife in future. Feng Yu must correct her thinking. How can studying be more important than playing?
Feng Yu seriously said: “We can surely enter University and it will be Beijing’s best university. Don’t worry about it. This evening, we shall go to the riverbank. There are street lights there.”
Sun Wenhai had promised Feng Yu that they will be guaranteed a place in the University and early next year, all they need to do was to attend an interview at the university. Even if they got no guaranteed places at the university, the university would be able to lower the entry requirements by 50 to 100 marks for them. Feng Yu could easily enter the university he wanted.
The Soviet Union Summer Camp will help Feng Yu a lot for his admission into the university. With his results, he would never get the chance to go to Beijing University if not for this camp.
It was not difficult for Feng Yu to enter university. Even if he failed the interview, he could apply for a university in Hong Kong or also study overseas.
However, Feng Yu was a lazy person and does not want to be too far away from home. Hong Kong’s university was the furthest he could accept. He was not interested in studying in the US or other countries.
Since 1980, private schools were allowed to operate in China. If all else fails, Feng Yu could set up a university for himself!
Feng Yu’s pager suddenly vibrates, and “99” was displayed. This was the code between Feng Yu and Wu Zhigang. If there is news about the stock exchange, Wu Zhigang will notify him this way.
Feng Yu was overjoyed. Shanghai’s stock exchange was set up!
