Chapter 14 – Where Are You?
Su Jishi sat in front of the computer with a serious expression on her face. Her fingernails painted scarlet danced on the keyboard, knocking out a series of beautiful English sentences.
When the last punctuation mark landed on the screen, she exhaled loudly and clicked the send button. Her whole person finally relaxed.
“Ahem. Su Jishi, what are you writing?” Without her awareness, Fang Xie stood behind her, stole a peep from the screen and looked at the full screen of professional vocabulary he couldn’t understand.
He could only wait for her to explain it to him.
Su Jishi closed the computer and didn’t have the spirit to answer.
“Well?” Fang Xie crossed his arms. “As your manager, I should know every—”
Before he could finish, Su Jishi lifted her open palm and shrugged her shoulders before speaking.
“What else can I do? I wrote an email to my tutor to apply for a long vacation. I am studying to become a doctor, and still has my thesis unfinished. At such a critical moment, I must return to China and stay for a year, which we both know will never happen. I gave the school a reason to leave. “
“I see.” Fang Xie had his hand on his chin, “And what reason did you use?”
She turned her chair and looked at him seriously. “I told them the truth.”
Before this misunderstanding escalates into full-blown series of crying and praying to God for mercy, Su Jishi made her vague answer clearer.
“I told my tutor that my mother died and my sister was missing. My sister owed a large sum of money before she disappeared so I went back to China to help her deal with the debt. “
Fang Xie: “….”
Indeed she said only the truth, not a word was false.
In the first place, Su Jishi agreed to this ridiculous thing herself and later understood why Fang Xie kidnapped her — out of desperation. But the truth was, she felt a little guilty for being absent in her sister and mother’s life by investing her time in the wild and in the research community.
It pained her deeply that her mother died without her knowing, and her sister was forced to enter the entertainment circle in vain hopes of saving their mother’s life by sending her off to the most expensive hospitals.
Apart from this, she was also a little selfish—she figured that she needed a long vacation to give herself time to think about what she would do in the future.
She had planned to devote her life in the very land under her feet since she was 18 years old. It had nothing to do with national borders, races or nationalities or some kind of patriotism.
In fact, her heart was so big that she could embrace the whole planet.
Geology is one of the major disciplines of Science which includes countless branches. After graduating from college, she specialized in “environmental geology”. In the most straightforward words, she yearned to solve environmental problems in scientific approaches.
After graduation, some of her classmates went to mines, some went to the seismological bureau, some did agriculture, some did urban construction, some did environmental protection… and, like her mentor, she helped in writing numerous books and became a research scholar.
From the age of 18 to 28, a full decade had passed, but Su Jishi became more and more confused.
She didn’t know which direction she should take. Whether she should delve deeper into the research field and stay in one place or go all over the great rivers and mountains all her life.
Her inner confusion delayed the completion of her doctoral thesis, so she had to postpone it. She was too fed up in the life she chose, there was no room to relax and think.
Then, an inexplicable opportunity knocked at her door.
Taking the place of her sister? Ah! Never had she foreseen it!
The contract between “Su Jin” and the entertainment company was only over one year left. In the next year, Su Jishi will be active in the entertainment circle as her sister until the contract expires…
What else would I do after?
Perhaps, she would find the traces of her sister, tie back the little bastard who broke away from home, and let her honestly perform her duties!
Only, in this vast world, Su Jinqing left without leaving any clues, where could she find her?
T/N: What do you think happened to Su Jinqing?
On a side note, I’m going to be very busy tomorrow with school, the chapter for tomorrow will be postponed by Sunday. I’m sorry readers (:06:)
