Chapter 1668 - 1668 First Time in the Independent Continent
1668 First Time in the Independent Continent
All small overseas forces would be discussing the distribution of scientific research authority. There was no need for him to go.
If not for the Ji family’s unusual banquet this year, there was a high chance that he would not have gone to the Independent Continent to join in the fun this time.
“Other than the Ji family’s banquet, help me reject the remaining banquets.”
“Tell them I don’t have time. I’m busy.”
Jian Jin finally snapped out of her thoughts and nodded. “Okay!”
Lu Zhi picked up the phone again. His slender fingers rested on the phone. His fingers were fair and slender, as if he was thinking about something. “Do you think I should bring some specialties back from the Independent Continent this time?”
A question mark slowly appeared in Jian Jin’s mind.
At the same time, she wondered what specialties there were in the Independent Continent.
Independent Continent’s specialty? Erm… Did gunpowder count?
She immediately realized why Lu Zhi was asking this. Jian Jin’s reaction was huge. She immediately waved her hand. “Don’t. I advise you not to buy special items!”
Lu Zhi glanced at her lightly.
Jian Jin’s expression was indescribable. “Qiao is studying. It’s not convenient for her to accept it.
“I was the one who brought your gift to Qiao last time. If you buy gunpowder, you won’t be able to pass the customs.”
Lu Zhi’s eyes deepened. He didn’t say anything, but he seemed to agree with her words. “There’s nothing special this year. I’ll go a day earlier. Also, help me arrange a trip to the Pharmacy Association.”
Qiao Nian had hacked all the information about her on the Internet before she set off. Almost no one knew that she had gone to the Independent Continent.
Jian Jin naturally didn’t know that Qiao Nian had gone to the Independent Continent alone with the research team from Qing University.
As for Lu Zhi…
Every year, he would take some time to go to the Pharmacy Association for Zhong Yiliu to take a look at his legs. It was not strange for him to go to the Pharmacy Association before going to the Independent Continent.
Then, Jian Jin left.
Lu Zhi watched her leave before he focused on his phone again. He looked at the Like a few more times seriously.
He logged out of his WeChat and opened a browser to search for the ‘Top 10 Love Words That Will Move Girls’ encyclopedia. Then, he started to choose again.

More than ten hours later.
Qiao Nian arrived at the Independent Continent.
Along the way, Master Cheng handled various procedures and they passed through various checkpoints.
Qiao Nian followed behind them, keeping a low profile.
They arrived at their hotel as evening approached.
This time, Master Cheng, Nie Mi, and the others went to settle the procedures. Qiao Nian held her bag and stood calmly in a corner, waiting.
At the same time, she took a look at the hotel.
This was her first time coming to the Independent Continent.
The Independent Continent sent an invitation to the Red Alliance every year, but Qiao Nian had never come.
The main reason was that the trip would take at least a week. At that time, she was in high school and time was tight. She also had classes on weekends.
Usually, if there was no reason for her to skip class for a week, the school would criticize her and make her do a reflection speech in the Monday morning reading.
Coupled with the Qiao family’s matters, she did not want to cause trouble or be criticized by Qiao Weimin and Shen Qiongzhi, so she had never been to the Independent Continent.
This was her first time stepping onto the Independent Continent’s territory.
The hotel they were staying at tonight looked even more luxurious than the illegal zone’s.
Including the hotel’s doorman, the other staff were all well-trained people.
