Chapter 766 – When did it start?
“Kexin, there is a letter from you. It is sent from the US. You have relatives in the US?” Wang Shenjing, Kexin’s roommate, asked.
“No. Let me see.”
Zhou Kexin saw the handwriting on the envelope and immediately knew who sent her this letter.
Zhou Kexin smiled happily as she held the letter against her chest.
“Eh, Kexin, who send you this letter? Could it be your boyfriend?” Wang Shenjing could tell Zhou Kexin knew who the sender from her expression was. The sender’s name was written in English. But who would call himself as ‘Ugly’ and No. 2 behind it?! What does this mean? Number two ugly person?
“Boyfriend? It’s my pen pal.” Zhou Kexin replied and blushed.
“What? Pen pal? You have a foreign penpal? An American penpal? I heard there are black people there.” Wang Shenjing exclaimed.
“He is not a foreigner. He is Chinese and had graduated from Beijing University!” Zhou Kexin retort. To her, no Americans or anyone can be compared to “Second most handsome person on earth.”
“Beijing University’s graduate? You still have a pen pal from there? How come to this letter is sent from the US? Did he continue his studies overseas?”
Wang Shenjing was surprised. After all, most top students will go overseas to continue their studies and will choose to remain there.
Wang Shenjing’s hometown had one person like this. After migrating overseas, that person brought his parents with him. She heard that money can be made easily in other countries. She also wanted to go abroad but did not have the opportunity.
“No. He told me that he was going to the US for work. He will be back during Lunar New Year.” Zhou Kexin felt slightly disappointed. It will take too long for her letter to reach Feng Yu.
“Wow! He went to the US to make money? How are his benefits at his unit there? Do they also have holidays during Lunar New Year?” Wang Shenjing exclaimed.
“They don’t call it units there. It’s called a company.” Zhou Kexin replied.
“It’s the same. How much is he earning every month?” Wang Shenjing asked. She does not care whether if it is called Units or companies. What matter most was the income!
“How would I know? I have never asked him about this. Ok. Thanks for collecting this letter for me. I heard that Li Lin had bought a big plush toy. You should go next door to visit her.”
Wang Shenjing glanced at Zhou Kexin: “You just want me to leave. Li Lin has allergies. She will not buy any plush toys. Fine. I shall not disturb you. Chat with you later.”
Zhou Kexin smiled and carefully opened the envelope and took out the letter.
“I am now in the US, Washington state. The capital of the US. The scenery here is wonderful, but everyone here is speaking in a foreign language. The culture here is very different from China, and everything is unfamiliar…….”
Zhou Kexin frowned as she read the letter. Since you think the US is not good, then why did you still go there? As a graduate of Beijing University, you can easily get a job in China.
Even if you do not go to any state-owned enterprises, you can also go to foreign companies. There are many international companies in Shanghai. They are paying their staffs well.
Zhou Kexin had entered Shanghai University, Journalism. She had chosen this course under the encouragement of “Second most handsome person on earth” and her parents.
Zhou Kexin was looking forward to being a reporter. She hopes to be able to interview those people who had made significant contributions to the country.
But Zhou Kexin did not understand why “Second most handsome person on earth” went to work in the US. He does not want to contribute to his motherland?
Since young, Zhou Kexin had been taught to repay the motherland by making contributions like the previous generations. But these teachings were quickly replaced by “overseas is better.” Wang Shenjing was one of them. Her dream was to go to the US.
Those people who left for other countries and never return did not undergo such education when they were young? Those people who dream of migrating did not study these ideologies before?
This was all because of the current economic conditions of the Chinese. People had suffered for too long, and everything they own had to be shared. Many capable people start to think if they should carry on like this or……. Leave for a better place?
When Zhou Kexin received Feng Yu’s letter today, she made up her mind to never leave China. China was still the best. Even “Second most handsome person on earth” cannot get used to life overseas, she will also not be able to.
This letter had 3 pages, and Zhou Kexin still felt it was too short. She wished for the letter to be longer. She took out her letter paper and start to write a reply letter.
After Zhou Kexin finishes her letter, she read it twice and then amend it. She wrote everything she saw and did in the letter, at the same time, she also wrote her inner secrets, which she had never told anyone else.
She checked her letter a few more times and then took out a new sheet of paper to write it nicely. She had written a wrong character earlier and had to strike it off. She does not want to send a letter with a cancellation to him.
“Kexin, what are you writing?” Another roommate, Wang Lei, entered.
Zhou Kexin quickly covered her letter. “You are back? I am not writing anything.”
“Not writing anything? Then why are you trying to cover it? Let me see what you are hiding. This must not be a letter to your parents. It must be your boyfriend. Is he from the same high school as you? Which university is he from?” Wang Lei asked.
“No. It’s only my penpal.” Zhou Kexin replied.
“Penpal? Why are you so nervous? Since it’s a penpal, then let me take a look at what you have written.” Wang Lei extends her hand in front of Zhou Kexin.
“No way! This is our secret.” Zhou Kexin lay flat on the table, covering her letter with her body.
“It’s really only a penpal?”
“Yes. It’s only my penpal! Zhou Kexin firmly replied.
“Don’t lie to me. Even if you two started as penpals, now it’s different. Look at you. Your face is all red. You like him, right?”
Zhou Kexin could feel her face burning up. Her heart was racing. She did not know when it started, but she seems to have fallen in love with this “Second most handsome person on earth.”
When he is happy, she will also be happy. When he is upset, she will also be in a bad mood.
This…… When did this start?
