Chapter 1344 Bootlicking
Qiao Nan raised her eyebrow. “I see. Alright, I won’t hold you back then?” If that was truly the case, after confirming the number of internship vacancies, Senior Xu still had to discuss with the department head in the school to confirm the details.
Xu Shengnan came back to the school to handle official matters. Of course, Qiao Nan could not waste her time. Furthermore, Qiao Nan had to attend lessons.
“What’s the hurry?” Xu Shengnan hooked her hands around Qiao Nan’s neck. “I have just received a call from the department head who will be discussing with me that something cropped up at his end. His elderly father-in-law had a fall and was hospitalized. He said he will be two hours late. Fortunately, my boss gave me half a day to resolve this issue. I’ve not been here for more than a year and I quite miss it. Let’s go. I will attend the class with you.”
Her boss had approved the leave. Wouldn’t she let herself down if she did not make full use of the time?
The moment Xu Shengnan and Qiao Nan stepped into the classroom, they became the center of attention of all the students inside.
The students in the school heard a lot that Xu Shengnan was doing well. It was not because of other reasons. They wished to become Xu Shengnan’s colleague. Gao Yan’s company was becoming increasingly famous in the capital. It gave employees a high salary, good benefits, and even became partners with major enterprises such as the Tian Corporation.
Gao Yan’s company was certainly very high-profile now.
In addition, many people were certain and could not dismiss the notion that Xu Shengnan could enter Gao Yan’s company all because of Qiao Nan. Without Qiao Nan being the middleman to introduce Xu Shengnan to Gao Yan’s company, how could Xu Shengnan be so lucky to know that Gao Yan was such a promising boss?
Now, it was even harder to get into Gao Yan’s company.
If they had Qiao Nan’s protection and care, like Senior Xu, they would be able to enhance their chances of getting into the company.
Due to this psychology, Qiao Nan was surrounded by many people nowadays. It was even more than when she was looking out for suitable juniors to take over her vice president position upon her fourth year of college studies.
As such, Qiao Nan had rejoiced more than once that she was only in the school during classes as she had to take care of the triplets. Besides attending classes, she completed the rest of her learning in her in-law’s house.
Otherwise, with so many people surrounding her, she could forget about quieting down to complete her studies.
Today, the two ‘main leads’ of the rumors were together. It was hard for others not to pay attention to them.
“Senior, is anyone sitting here?” Very quickly, a brave soul walked toward Xu Shengnan and eyed the seat beside her. “Senior Xu, you have already graduated. Why did you return to school today? Is there any matter?”
Xu Shengnan was initially stunned. She then replied, “There is no one sitting here.” After she said that, she gave a professional and gentle smile. “It’s rare for me to have some time today. Hence, I came back to take a look and also find people to reminisce.”
“Oh, I see.” That male classmate expressed disbelief. Senior Gao Yan’s company had so many projects and businesses recently. Everyone in the company was crazily clocking overtime. Of course, the more they worked overtime, the more money they earned. The effort and reward were corresponding. At this moment, why would Senior Xu have so much spare time to take a stroll in the school?
Of course, Xu Shengnan knew that no one would believe her. However, it was up to them to believe it or not. It did not bother her.
When Xu Shengnan was thinking about another reason to brush off this male junior if he were to pester her again, a shocking and stunning matter happened.
That student lifted his head, his line of sight hopping over Xu Shengnan’s head and falling on Qiao Nan. “Classmate Qiao, this is a book that is new in the library. I have read it and the content is good. I know you love to read and can lend this to you first. There is limited quantity and all of them are on loan now.”
Shoo! Having said that, that book shuffled past Xu Shengnan’s eyes and stopped only when it was pushed to Qiao Nan.
The book was certainly very new. It must have arrived in the library of Peking University from abroad no more than three days.
After encoding the serial number and opening it for borrowing, the books were loaned out in no time.
If one did not receive news beforehand or someone had not granted any convenience, it was very difficult to get hold of such a good book immediately. Therefore, this student must have some means in the school.
Xu Shengnan, who had thought that she was the target of the other party, was in a state of confusion and daze. So as to speak, she had been overconfident. That junior did not even bother about her.
There was a flash of disdain in that student’s eyes. It was as if he knew what Xu Shengnan was thinking.
At most, Senior Xu had found a better job. Would Senior Xu be able to help him get into this company and become her colleague?
Who in the school was unaware that Senior Xu had such a good job because she knew Qiao Nan and received the latter’s help? If he did not look for Qiao Nan, the main party, and looked for Senior Xu instead, wasn’t this considered putting the cart before the horse? He was not so stupid.
In the presence of a spacious and wide path, who would be willing to use the strength of a bull to go through a windy and narrow path?
Qiao Nan, who was writing furiously, quietly sighed at the sight of this book.
As expected, this was not the first time that Qiao Nan had encountered such matters. However, she felt very helpless all the time. Even if she were to talk her head off, no one believed that she did not render much help to Xu Shengnan for getting into Gao Yan’s company. She did not help much. It was Xu Shengnan’s own good fortune. Of course, unless one’s luck was comparable to Xu Shengnan, she could not help them either.
She had spoken the truth umpteen times but no one believed her. Hence, Qiao Nan felt helpless.
“Thank you, classmate. I have finished reading this book during my second year of studies. Actually, the third volume is already out. The book in my hands now is the third volume. You can check it out if you are interested. However, the second volume is badly out of stock. It should be the same for the third volume when it is out.” Qiao Nan closed the book in her hand and revealed the cover.
In fact, without the help of the Zhai family and her godfather, similar to these students, Qiao Nan could only come into contact with volume one of the book even though volume three had already been published. She would not even be aware that the second volume had been out of stock for a long time.
Sometimes, it was not enough to work hard in studies. With enough capability, at such times, Qiao Nan could advance faster than others by not just one step but ten or even twenty steps.
“Goodness! You managed to get it?”
