MO Zhu was relieved. “Relationships are the most unpredictable. No one’s relationship path can really be smooth sailing for the rest of their lives. However, if you do your best to maintain this relationship, even if the final outcome makes you dissatisfied, don’t be upset and depressed. Walk forward boldly forever. The person who loves you will wait for you at the end. The person who comes late will follow you silently.”

When Li You heard her mother’s words, she benefited greatly. “l understand. Pei Jingzhou is the person waiting for me at the end…” As she spoke, Li You looked up at her mother. “And Dad is the person who followed Mom silently.”

Nio Zhu nodded. “Yes.’

The mother and daughter chatted for a long time until it was late. It was time to rest.

MO Zhu stood up, and Li You followed suit. MO Zhu raised her hand and patted Li You’s arm. “After Little Pei returns to the country tomorrow, you should calm down and take the exam. After the exam, go to the embassy with your father.”

Li You agreed. “Oh, got it.”

The next day, Li You sent Pei Jingzhou to the airport. Pei Jingzhou did not let her send him in. “Study well when you get back. You’ll take the exam the day after tomorrow. I’ll come back after you’re done.”

Li You replied, “Got it.” In fact, she couldn’t bear to. She took the initiative to hug his waist. “Last night, Mom told me to follow Dad to the embassy after the exam.”

How could Pei Jingzhou not understand what she meant? “You’re used to being relaxed and comfortable. Now that you’re suddenly going to be busy, there’s a huge difference in your heart, right?”

Li You pouted. “What do you think?”

Pei Jingzhou said, “I’m working hard too.”

Li You looked up at him. “Little Pei, let’s work hard together.”

Pei Jingzhou raised his eyebrows. “Is Little Pei something you can call?”

“Am I not allowed to call you Little Pei, only my parents are allowed to call you Little Pei? I think this Little Pei is quite nice.” She shook his arm coquettishly and said, ‘You can also call me Little Li.”

Pei Jingzhou said, “Li You.”

Li You said, “Little Li.”

Pei Jingzhou said, “Li You.”

Li You pouted and snorted. “Bye-bye, Little Pei.”

Pei Jingzhou couldn’t help but laugh. He lowered his head and kissed her forehead. “I’m leaving, then.”

“Oh, wait!” Li You handed a bag of mangosteens to Pei Jingzhou. “Take this back for Auntie to eat.” Pei Jingzhou took the bag. She said, “It’s not easy to bring durians. If you can bring durians, I’ll definitely bring two more durians back for you.”

Pei Jingzhou looked at the bag of mangosteens in his hand. “Then I have to thank the durians for being too big and not convenient to bring them back. Otherwise, I wouldn’t even dare to imagine you letting me carry two durians into the airport.”

“It’s fine in Country T. If you carry two large durians and wear a hot pair of slippers and sunglasses, people will think you’re a local handsome man.” She smiled as she spoke.

As she spoke, she did not forget to scan him up and down like a scanner. “If you change into the set I just mentioned, you will be a standard local handsome man.’

Pei Jingzhou raised his hand and tapped her forehead. “I’m also a handsome local man in the capital.”

Li You pouted. “Oh, Pei Jingzhou is so narcissistic.”

Pei Jingzhou said, “l learned it from you.” He lowered his hand. “I’m about to miss my flight. I’m going in.”

“Alright, bye~”.  She waved her hand reluctantly.

Pei Jingzhou lowered his head and kissed her lips before turning to go in. After watching Pei Jingzhou enter the airport, Li You stood there for a while before taking a taxi to school.

On this day, Li You revised and prepared for the exam the day after tomorrow. At the same time, she re-established her next plan. The most important thing was to go to the embassy. She hadn’t expected the schedule to be brought forward by a day.

Li Huaisheng planned to take Li You to the embassy tomorrow. Li You did not care if the time was brought forward. She was going anyway. The next day, Li You packed early and followed her father to the embassy.

Although there was a rainy season in Country T, it did not actually rain often. However, for some reason, the recent weather has been indicating rain.

Li You had never taken the weather in Country T seriously. But Li Huaisheng had brought an umbrella with him. In the car, father and daughter chatted about the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

The work of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs was not that complicated. It was divided into two main categories. She had known this for a long time. They were handling cases and research. The corresponding departments were all in the office, in charge of welcoming and sending people. The corresponding part of the research was the Political Department, which would write the latest developments and reports of the country.

Li Huaisheng said, “In addition to the cases and research you know about, there’s also the Consul.’

Li You asked, “Which consuls?”

Li Huaisheng said, “Receiving Overseas Chinese and Consulate General.” Li You asked again, “Then what am 1 going to try to interact with next?”

“l wanted you to come into contact with the case first, but your local language is too bad. You won’t understand if the natives speak a little faster, so you’d better go to the research office to train. If you don’t know, look up the dictionary. It’s better than you translating it to someone on your phone.”

At this point, Li Huaisheng did not forget to remind Li You, “You’ve been in Country T for almost two years, but your local language is still so bad. I suggest that you achieve intermediate local language skills in the second half of this year.”

When she heard that she was going to complete the intermediate T language skills in the second half of the year, Li You frowned. It was too difficult.

It started to rain halfway through the drive. Li Huaisheng was glad.

“Fortunately, I brought an umbrella.”

Li You turned to look out the window. The rain was not heavy yet.

When the car drove into the embassy, the rain was already much heavier. Li Huaisheng got out of the car and waited for Li You to come down with an umbrella. The father and daughter walked side by side. When they arrived under the roof, Li Huaisheng was about to put away the umbrella when a woman in her thirties walked over.

The woman was here to seek consular assistance. She had just arrived overseas and had lost a large sum of money. As she could not find the direction of the consular office, she was about to ask someone when she met Li Huaisheng and Li You.

The woman recognized Li Huaisheng at a glance and quickly shouted, “Mr.

Li Huaisheng handed the umbrella to Li You. “Keep it.”

Li You took the umbrella and saw her father walk towards the anxious woman. After patiently listening to the woman’s explanation, he immediately took the woman to the Consulate.

Li You watched as her father and the person who had come to the embassy to seek consular assistance walked away. She had planned to put away her umbrella and prepare to follow. She shook the raindrops off it. In her hurry, she hadn’t noticed anyone coming in behind her, but she’d thrown it at the person who’d come in behind her, and at his face.

“Hey, you—”

Hearing the voice, Li You quickly turned around. She saw that the boy behind her had a large patch of rain on his clean clothes and his face.

Li You:

Gu Lanshi:

Li You quietly put away the umbrella and took out a bag of tissue from her bag. Without even taking it out, she handed it to the other party. “I’m sorry. I didn’t do it on purpose.”

Gu Lanshi took the packet of tissues and placed the umbrella aside. He took out a tissue to wipe the rain off his face. Seeing that the other party looked guilty and apologetic, Gu Lanshi paused. “I’m fine. You can leave.”

Li You said again, “I’m sorry.”

With that, she turned around and ran away with the umbrella. She didn’t think she’d see him again. But she saw him again soon, because he was standing right behind her father..
