Fortunate To Meet You (English Ver.) - Chapter 3
What kind of attitude his own son was like, Zhou Yuzhi naturally knew very well. From childhood until now, his son was always cold like that. Hating meaningless things. He turned around and said to Liang Zheng, “Leave him alone. Later, when Uncle Zhou comes home, we’ll go eat.”
Liang Zheng curled his lips, smiled. Zhou Xu immediately took a shower and changed clothes after returning to the room. When he came down, it happened that Zhou Yuzhi had taken Liang Zheng out to eat.
He headed to the refrigerator to get a bottle of mineral water and went out of the house. When he got to the basketball court, Qing Song and his friends had already finished the first round, they were taking a short break.
Seeing Zhou Xu coming here, Qing Song threw a basketball at him, “I thought you didn’t come.”
Zhou Xu caught the ball accurately, threw it into the basketball hoop and it went into the ring steadily. After Zhou Xu came, he scored several scores consecutively.
He and Qin Song had strong attacking chemistry. In the second half, they immediately defeated the opposing team and won a big victory. After finishing playing basketball, the losing team leaves first.
The basketball court was empty, leaving only Zhou Xu and a few members of their team. Zhou Xu sat in the stands and drank water, Qin Song also walked over to him.
He bent down to pick up a bottle of mineral water from the floor and began to open it, “Why are you going to the Forbidden City today? So no work?”
“Accompanying people.” After finishing drinking, Zhou Xu closed the bottle again and got up. He simply threw the bottle into the trash at the bottom of the stairs and walked out.
Qin Song immediately followed suit, “Really? Who is so honorable that you have to accompany him yourself?”
Qin Song was very surprised. What kind of personality is Zhou Xu, those who grew up together since childhood couldn’t possibly know? Zhou Xu who hated being bothered so much could accompany people to visit the Forbidden City?
Qin Song became even more curious and kept asking, “Who the hell? So honorable?”
Zhou Xu looked tired, answering honestly, “My mother’s friend’s daughter.”
“Wow!” Qin Song was even more shocked when he heard that this person was a woman, “A woman? You accompany a woman? Isn’t she beautiful?”
Zhou Xu entered a convenience store and said indifferently, “Not paying attention.”
After Liang Zheng finished eating with Uncle and Aunt Zhou, it was already over 10 in the evening when they arrived back home.
Liang Zheng has a cheerful and passionate personality, Zhou Yuzhi really likes her. Along the way, she kept saying that she wanted Liang Zheng to be her daughter only. Unlike her own son, the character is so cold, not at all close to him.
Liang Zheng felt ashamed, in her heart thought, at home she was constantly disliked by her own mother for being naughty.
After getting out of the car, Zhou Yuzhi pulled Liang Zheng into the house. The two of them are still talking about where to go tomorrow.
Zhou Yuzhi had time tomorrow, she intended to invite Liang Zheng to go have a good time. Just entering the house, it so happened that Zhou Xu came down from the top floor to get water. Zhou Yuzhi asked, “Have you eaten?”
Zhou Xu agreed, “I have.”
“Good. Initially wanted a pack for you. But on second thought, you also won’t eat.”
Zhou Yuzhi looked up to look at the clock on the wall, she said to Liang Zheng, “Zhengzheng has been gone all day today, must be tired. Go back to the room to rest. Tomorrow Auntie will take you out.”
Liang Zheng nodded, smiled obediently, “Thank you, Auntie. Auntie and Uncle also go to bed early.”
Zhou Yuzhi smiled, stroking Liang Zheng’s head, “Yes, go away.”
It so happened that Zhou Xu had finished fetching water and was about to return to the top floor, Liang Zheng went up with him.
The third floor belonged to Zhou Xu’s private area, it was very quiet. After arriving on the third floor, just as Zhou Xu was getting ready to enter his room, Liang Zheng called out to him, “Zhou Xu.”
Zhou Xu’s hand that was about to turn the knob stopped, turning his head towards him. Liang Zheng looked at him and smiled sweetly, she said sincerely, “Today, thank you.”
Zhou Xu stared at her, said nothing and simply replied ‘hmm’. After that open the door and enter the room. Liang Zheng was outside looking at the closed door of Zhou Xu’s room. There was a few seconds of silence before returning to her own room with light steps.
When she finished showering and changed into her pajamas, she sat down at the dressing table to dry her hair. She sat cross-legged on the bed and called her mother, told her about the place she visited today, had eaten anything and shared her good mood for the day.
The mother and daughter chatted for half an hour. Before hanging up, Liang Zheng suddenly asked, “Mama, do you know that Zhou Xu is going to study at Cambridge?”
“You know,” said Liang Mama, “I told you from the start, that Zhou Xu is no ordinary talented young man. Obviously different from you.”
“What’s wrong with me, my grades are pretty good too.” said Liang Zheng displeasedly.
Liang Mama snorted on the other side and said, “What kind of character do I really know? From a young age you just liked to play. If I hadn’t been carrying rattan since you were a child and chasing you from behind, do you want to study?”
Liang Zheng laughed at that, stretched out the blanket and got on the bed. After the mother and daughter finished teasing each other, Liang Mama couldn’t help laughing anymore, “Never mind, it’s late. You rest early, be obedient tomorrow when you go out to play, don’t bother Auntie Zhou. If the money is not enough, tell me. I told papa to send it for you. ”
“I know.” The room was so quiet, soft air blew from the air conditioner. Liang Zheng pulled up the blanket and closed his eyes saying, “Mama and daddy are also sleeping early. Good night.”
Liang Zheng stayed three days at the Zhou’s house. Aunt Zhou took him to various places in Beijing for sightseeing.
After ten days, Liang Zheng became very close to Uncle and Aunt Zhou. However, she was not very familiar with Zhou Xu. After all, Zhou Xu wasn’t home often either. Even at home, not talk to him too much.
Liang Zheng’s lectures will start on September 2. The first two days of college, Zhou Yuzhi had some business and had to leave town for a while. Papa’s Zhou Xu also had to go on a business trip.
At night, Zhou Yuzhi went up to meet Zhou Xu and said to him, “Tomorrow I will catch the plane early in the morning. The day after tomorrow Zhengzheng starts college, you take her to campus.”
Zhou Xu just finished taking a shower, his hair was still wet too. He frowned and looked at his mother, “Troublesome problem like this, can you not keep telling me?”
Zhou Yuzhi said, “Where’s so troublesome? After all, lately you also have nothing to do. What’s more, Zhengzheng’s personality is so good. A person as cold as you who can’t even answer one sentence after hearing people speak 10 sentences, you should spend more time with Zhengzheng.”
Zhou Xu carelessly wiped his hair and threw the towel on the nightstand. He took a glass, walked out and said coldly, “Noisy.”
Even though Zhou Xu had a hard time, on the day the lecture started, he still drove Liang Zheng to his campus. Liang Zheng had not been alone with Zhou Xu for quite a while. All the way to campus, it’s very quiet in the car. Liang Zheng took the initiative to invite Zhou Xu to talk, “What date do you start college?”
“Then, what date are you leaving?” asked Liang Zheng. “13th.”
“Oh——” Liang Zheng nodded and asked again, “When are you go off? When are you coming home?”
Liang Zheng, “…”
Liang Zheng realized that every time she talked to Zhou Xu, basically only she was the one who asked and the young man answered.
Besides, it was Zhou Xu who always ended the continuation of each sentence. He really couldn’t speak in this way anymore. You better just keep quiet.
Fortunately, even though the campus is far away, but not for a long time sitting in the car, Liang Zheng was already asleep.
Arriving at campus, Liang Zheng woke up. On the first day of college, the campus gets bustling again after a lonely summer vacation.
New students are starting to enter college, there are banners on both sides of the campus road that welcome new students. There are welcome points scattered throughout the campus area.
Zhou Xu drove into the campus, the black sports car was very striking. All the way inside, attracting countless people to turn their heads and start talking about it.
“Where’s your dorm?” asked Zhou Xu.
Liang Zheng had already received the dormitory room number distributed by the campus, but she did not know the exact location. Zhou Xu slowed down and stopped at the greeting point, lowering the window, “Ask ahead.”
Liang Zheng leaned her head out, asked the female student campus wearing the Student Association uniform, “Senior Brother, I want to ask. How to get to Lanyuan No.3 Building?”
The girl approached her and pointed to Liang Zheng’s left, “That way, turn right at the first intersection. After that go straight.”
Liang Zheng thanked him immediately, “Thank you, Senior Brother.”
“You are welcome.” As the girl spoke, her eyes accidentally passed Liang Zheng and saw the man sitting in the driving seat. Her eyes couldn’t help but sparkle. Until the car drove back, then he regained consciousness and returned to the welcoming point.
The car stopped at the dormitory door of the Lanyuan No. 3. Liang Zheng took off her seat belt and got out of the car. After Zhou Xu opened the front trunk of the car, she immediately put down the suitcase herself.
But the suitcase was too heavy. As soon as she got out of the trunk, Liang Zheng’s arms went limp and the suitcase almost hit her leg. As the suitcase almost slipped out of hand, Zhou Xu reached out to grab it, “What floor?”
Lanyuan is a women’s dormitory, the whole building contains girls. When Zhou Xu helped Liang Zheng carry the suitcase upstairs, Liang Zheng realized that almost all of the girls passing by were secretly glancing at Zhou Xu. Either on purpose or not purpose.
However, Zhou Xu was indeed very handsome. A kind of good looks that could be seen in one swipe of an eye, even when he was standing in the middle of a large crowd.
Liang Zheng who was standing next to Zhou Xu, covered her mouth with her hand and whispered, “Zhou Xu, many girls are looking at you.”
Hearing this, Zhou Xu looked at Liang Zheng too. Liang Zheng’s eyes narrowed and she smiled, her eyes met Zhou Xu’s eyes. In her heart suddenly ignited the gossip fire and whispered, “Zhou Xu, is there a girl that you like?”
Zhou Xu gave him a lazy gaze, turning his face away coldly.
Liang Zheng, “…”
When Liang Zheng arrived at the dormitory, the other three girls had already arrived. Zhou Xu put the suitcase in front of the door, did not go inside, “I’ll go first.”
Liang Zheng nodded, held the trunk lever and said as she looked at Zhou Xu, “Today, thank you again.”
Zhou Xu replied ‘hmm’, said nothing else and turned away. After Zhou Xu got off, Liang Zheng turned around and pulled her suitcase into the dormitory. The four girls introduced themselves to each other and started chatting.
Liang Zheng put on the sheets and started cleaning the room with the other girls. Then, go to the student office to re-apply.
After she finished re-registering, Liang Zheng called her mother and reported the situation. Just got off the phone, Aunt Zhou already called here. Liang Zheng immediately replied, “Auntie.”
Zhou Yuzhi asked from the other side, “Zhengzheng, have you arrived at the campus? Has everything in the dorm been settled?”
Liang Zheng said, “It’s here, Auntie. The dorm is also done. We’ll be out to eat soon.”
“Good, I can calm down.” Zhou Yuzhi added, “In a few days I will come home, I’ll go see how you are.”
Liang Zheng smiled sweetly, “Hmm. Thank you, Auntie.”
During the day, the four girls went off campus for lunch. For their first lunch they chatted very happily.
While eating, Xiaoyu suddenly asked, “Zhengzheng, who was driving you to the dorm? He’s so handsome, is that your boyfriend?”
Liang Zheng, who was eating, almost choked. She immediately drank water and coughed several times. Qianqian who was beside her smiled and patted her back, “Slow down a little.”
It took Liang Zheng a long time to return to normal. Widening eyes and saying with a flat face, “No, you guys don’t talk carelessly.”
This kind of thing really shouldn’t be discussed carelessly.
