Extraordinary Genius - Chapter 646
Chapter 646 – The long-awaited letter
Although it was the summer holidays, Zhou Kexin still goesto school every day. Her parents were glad to know that their daughter wasworking hard for her studies.
But Zhou Kexin’s parents did not want her to tire herselfout, despite her University entrance exams were around the corner.
“Xinxin, it’s raining today. Don’t go to school today. Youcan stay at home for revision or go out and play with your friends.” Her mothersaid.
“Mum, it’s fine. The rain is not heavy, and I can take thebus to school.” Zhou Kexin carried her school bag and an umbrella and left forschool.
Zhou Kexin went to school every day during the schoolholidays was to prepare for her exams. But there was something more important.She was waiting for a letter.
Since year 1, she will receive 2 to 3 letters. But duringyear 2, that ‘Second most handsome person on earth’ went to Hong KongUniversity as an exchange student. They had only exchanged 3 letters in total.
‘Second most handsome person on earth’ had stated that hewill be returning back to Beijing University soon in his last letter. He alsosaid that he will write to her after he returns. But where was the letter?
To receive the letter earlier, Zhou Kexin returned to schoolevery day. Of course, she told her parents and friends that she was doing herrevision in school.
“Girl, no need to ask. There are no letters for you today.”Mr. Li, the security guard at the school, said.
Zhou Kexin was disappointed. She lowered her head and walkedslowly to her classroom. Why was there no letters? Did he forget about me? Hewants to stop being my penpal? But in the last letter, we are still chattinghappily.
Zhou Kexin was alone in her classroom. It was raining today,and none of her classmates were back in school for revision. Zhou Kexin sat ather seat and took out her history textbook. She opened the book carefully.There were a few letters in between the pages.
She took out the letters and starts reading them. She hadread these letters dozens of times until the edges of the letter began to curl.
But Zhou Kexin still wants to read them even when she couldmemorize all the contents of the letters. She had read it until she was able toimitate ‘Second most handsome person on earth’ handwriting.
After reading all the letters, she folds it back carefullyand kept it in between her history textbooks. After that, she took out hergeography books and start studying.
The next day, it was still raining. But Zhou Kexin stillinsists on going back to school. She did not want to miss the letter.
When Zhou Kexin arrived at her school’s entrance, Mr. Li ranout from his security post and waved to her. “Hey, Girl! Your letter is here!”
This moment was Zhou Kexin’s happiest moment of her life.She had waited long enough for this letter.
Zhou Kexin ran to the security post. In her hurry, she evenforgets to lift up her umbrella. She did not mind the raindrops falling on her.Her uniform and hair were slightly wet from the rain. She would normally walkcarefully during rain to avoid the puddles on the ground. But now, she couldn’tcare less. Her shoes were wet when she ran towards the security post.
“Grandpa Li, give me my letter!” She ran into Old Mr. Li’ssecurity post and shouted.
“Here is a towel I gotten last month and still have not usedit before. Wipe yourself dry first. If your letter got wet, the words might besmudged.” Old Mr. Li laughed and passed a new white towel to Zhou Kexin.
Zhou Kexin heard that she might make the letter wet, and sheresist the urge to touch the letter. She took the towel and wipe away the waterdroplets on her, especially her hands.
“Here, have some hot water. You must be careful not to catcha cold.”
“Thank you. Grandpa Li, I will not drink the water. I willgo to the classroom now.” Zhou Kexin grabbed the letter on the table and keptit in her school bag. She kept it in between her books and opened up herumbrella. She walked quickly towards her class.
Old Mr. Li shook his head. It’s just a letter, and she hadbeen asking every day. Now, she got her letter, and she does not need to be soexcited. The letter will also not fly away.
Zhou Kevin ran back to her classroom and opened the doorwith her keys. There was no one in the classroom. She closed the door andreturned to her seat. She can’t wait to read the letter.
But Zhou Kexin took out a handkerchief to wipe her handsfirst before taking out the letter from her books.
On the envelope, the address was written in familiarhandwriting. The name written on the envelope was ‘Second most handsome personon earth’!
Zhou Kexin was smiling even before she read the letter. Sheopened up the envelope carefully and took out the letter.
There were only two pages. Zhou Kexin unfolds the letter andstarts reading.
I had returned from Hong Kong University. You can use thisaddress in the future. To be back at a familiar place feels so good…….
After reading the two-page letter, Zhou Kexin felt it wasnot enough. She wanted more. She picked up the envelope and look inside. It wasempty.
She read the letter two more times and took out a stake ofletter papers from her bag to write a return letter.
‘Second most handsome person on earth,’ have you become themost handsome person on earth? The last time you said that Hong Kong is abustling city. Do you feel disappointed to return back to Beijing? After yougraduate, will you go to Hong Kong to look for work?
I was second in my class for my last semester exams. Thedifference between me and the first position was only 1 mark. I knew how toanswer one of the questions, but I still got it wrong.
Do you think that I will be able to get into a university inBeijing? Our school is not some good high school. I heard that if I apply forsome unpopular courses, I get a higher chance of getting accepted. Should I doso?
Zhou Kexin finishes writing her letter, and she checked herletter twice for spelling and punctuations mistakes. It was just like she wassitting for her exams. She blew lightly on the letter to make sure the ink wasdry before she starts folding the letter carefully.
Zhou Kexin was not like Feng Yu. Feng Yu would just fold theletter twice and stuff it into the envelope. Zhou Kexin used origami methodsshe learned when she was young to fold her letter. She folded her letter intothe shape of a little man. Although she was not good at origami, she stillfeels the letter looks more beautiful this way.
She placed the paper man into an envelope she prepared a longtime ago. The address and stamp were already written on the envelope. She sealedthe envelope with glue and double check if the envelope was sealed properly beforekeeping it in between her books.
“Bye, Grandpa Li.”
“You are going back early today? Remember to drink more hotwater to prevent catching a cold. Aside from studying, your health is also veryimportant.” Old Mr. Li waved to Zhou kexin. How come she only stayed in schoolfor about an hour? She usually stays in school for at least 2 hours.
If Old Mr. Li knew that Zhou Kexin did not even look at herbooks and just spent all her time reading and writing a letter, he would surelybe speechless.
It was raining, and Zhou Kexin did not want to drop theletter into the letterbox in case it got wet. She went to a post office andpassed the letter to the staff there.
On her way back, Zhou Kexin was wondering how that ‘Secondmost handsome person on earth’ would react when he received her letter……
