2235 Slap in the Face, Scum Ji Is Leaving the Research Institute
Outside the First Research Institute.
The Ji family’s private car was quietly parked by the roadside.
Ji Ziyin got out of the car with a pale face. The chauffeur held an umbrella for her and said worriedly, “Miss, I’ll go in with you.”
“I’ll go in myself,” Ji Ziyin said softly as she looked at the door of the research institute.
Her left hand was still wrapped in gauze. Her beige windbreaker wrapped around her thin figure, making her look dispirited.
However, her aura was still there.
Ji Ziyin bit her lip and looked at the entrance of the research institute with flickering eyes. She suppressed the unwillingness and hatred in her eyes and walked in step by step.
Everyone from the research institute was present today.
Many people heard that she would come back to get her things today.
They were discussing the fact that she and Xie Xinyao had been expelled from the research institute.
Along the way, Ji Ziyin heard all kinds of sounds floating into her ears.
“Ji Ziyin is here to get her stuff. Tsk, who would have thought that she would be expelled? I thought that she was going to enter the Level 8 laboratory some time ago, but who knew that she would be expelled in the blink of an eye? This is too tragic!”
“Back then, when Qiao Nian first entered the research institute, she secretly pressured the other rookie teams not to take her in. Only the worst and most inconspicuous Team 10 resisted the pressure and let Qiao Nian join them… Not long ago, everyone in Team 10 entered the Level 8 laboratory. Now, the previously glorious Ji Ziyin was chased out of the research institute. This is called change is the only constant, the wheel of fortune turns… One can’t be too arrogant.”
“Actually, if she hadn’t targeted the ‘Newcomer King’ in the beginning, things wouldn’t have turned out like this. Her team at that time had the best members. If Qiao Nian had joined her team instead of Team 10, she would have been the one to enter the Level 8 laboratory. Why would she have to go through so much trouble to enter the Level 8 laboratory…”
“Everyone says that she’s a once-in-a-century genius in the Ji family. I don’t think she’s as good as that ‘Newcomer King’. If she’s really as talented as she says, why can’t she enter the Level 8 laboratory? The dean would also be unwilling to give up on her.”
“She’s just bragging.”
“I’ve always felt that Ji Ziyin is really not a genius compared to Qiao Nian. The difference between the two of them is too great.”
Ji Ziyin felt as if she was constantly stabbed along the way. She felt like her heart was being twisted by a knife.
She walked as if she was stepping on a fire. With every step, countless words drilled into her ears, humiliating her.
She did not want to hear it, but the discussions surged over like a tide.
To protect her remaining dignity, Ji Ziyin could only pretend not to hear them as she walked towards the Level 5 laboratory with a straight face.
Gu Hengbo was waiting for her in the office. Hearing the knock on the door, he looked up and said, “Come in.”
Ji Ziyin walked into the office with a pale and weak expression. “Teacher, I’m here to get my things.”
Actually, she did not have much to take away. She mainly wanted to take the archives of the experiment records she had done in the research institute over the years.
Gu Hengbo stood up and handed her the file he had prepared earlier.
Ji Ziyin took the file silently and looked up.
Gu Hengbo spoke before she could say anything. “I’ve fought for you.”
Ji Ziyin looked at him.
A rare trace of anger flashed across Gu Hengbo’s usually stiff face, but he quickly regained his usual distance. “The dean and the others insist on expelling you. It’s useless for me to speak up for you alone. No one else is on my side.”
Ji Ziyin’s grip on the file tightened. She lowered her head and said in a low voice, “I know. Thank you, Teacher.”
An evil fire burned in Gu Hengbo’s heart when he saw how ‘obedient’ she was.
He had finally found a good seedling and was nurturing her carefully. In the end, it was gone just like that. Who would be happy?
