Chapter 405: Long Time Reunion
Lu Zhou had been hanging around Jin Ling University over the past few days.
He’d either visit his old professor friends or study the Navier–Stokes equation in his hotel room.
He had many social events to attend in China. Therefore, he didn’t have much time to work on mathematics problems.
But now, he finally had some time to continue focusing on his math problem.
Other than studying the math problem in his hotel room, Lu Zhou would go to the library at Jin Ling University and feel what it was like to be a student.
That feeling gave him a mindset to tackle problems from a different perspective; it often gave him an unexpected inspiration.
A week quickly pa.s.sed by, and it was soon January 18th.
His friends from Dorm 201 decided to gather together two days before the wedding.
The gathering spot was obviously the fish restaurant.
They ordered a pot of grilled fish and some beer.
The boys began to brag while drinking beers.
“Zhou, let me give you a toast…” Liu Rui tapped gla.s.ses with Lu Zhou and said, “I saw you on the news a few days ago, and I bragged to a chick and said we slept together before. She didn’t believe me until I showed her a photo. Congratulations on winning another national-level award, also thank you for letting me brag in front of a hot chick.”
Lu Zhou nearly choked on the beer. “… You’re welcome, next time don’t make it sound so weird.”
Lu Zhou had to admit that Liu Rui’s mentality matured after graduating from Yan University.
If it was before and Liu Rui saw Lu Zhou on the news, he would have turned off the TV.
But now, he could calmly read the news without being bothered by it.
In the beginning, Liu Rui didn’t know what Lu Zhou was researching, but now, he didn’t even know what prize Lu Zhou was receiving. The difference between the two was becoming bigger and bigger.
Of course, was Liu Riu jealous?
Of course he was!
Lu Zhou said, “Oh yeah, who is your supervisor at Yan University?”
Liu Rui said, “Academician w.a.n.g Yuping. I’m studying partial differential equations under him.”
“w.a.n.g Yuping? He’s also studying partial differential equations?”
Lu Zhou didn’t expect to know Liu Rui’s supervisor.
Liu Rui nodded and said, “That’s right, but his research is more applied than pure mathematics. You haven’t been studying number theory recently. Are you studying partial differential equations as well?”
Lu Zhou: “You could say so.”
Interested, Liu Rui asked, “Oh, what research project?”
Lu Zhou smiled. “Let’s not talk about that.”
Liu Rui waved his hand and said, “It’s fine, my mental health is strong now, just tell me.”
Lu Zhou replied, “Navier–Stokes equation.”
Liu Rui went silent for a while. He then said, “… The existence of a smooth Navier–Stokes equation solution?”
Lu Zhou nodded. “Yes.”
Liu Rui: “…”
Millennium Prize Problem…
Why is the difference between us so big?
Huang Guangming saw that Liu Rui was feeling down, and so, he quickly said, “Let’s talk about something else.”
s.h.i.+ Shang nodded. “Agreed.”
The four bros didn’t talk about academics for the rest of the night.
After all, they had different development paths in life, and so, they had nothing similar to talk about.
Huang Guangming didn’t change much. The only change he had was that he gave a douchey vibe even when he wasn’t laughing.
Liu Rui looked more tanned and well-built than before. According to him, that was from playing basketball. When he was an undergrad student, he never played basketball. However, he started playing it after he went to Yan University.
As for s.h.i.+ Shang, he changed the most among the squad. He went from a boy to a man and looked a lot more mature now.
According to Huang Guangming, s.h.i.+ Shang could “grow a beard and become a director, put on a pair of gla.s.ses and become an insurance broker”.
s.h.i.+ Shang had an eventful year.
His life after graduation didn’t go as expected. Rather, it completely deviated from his original plan.
He planned on working to save some money. After that, he wanted to open a little business, and then, to get married and buy a house. By then, w.a.n.g Jingya would have finished her master’s degree, and they could seal the deal.
However, less than a year after he graduated, something big happened.
The fetus inside of Jingya’s body completely changed s.h.i.+ Shang’s plans.
Not only that, but he wasn’t able to save up enough money to open a small business in Jinling.
But fortunately, he was able to buy a house in the city.
However, that was with his parent’s money…
“… I don’t want to say anything else, I just want to say one thing to my bro. If you have a girlfriend, make sure to take safety measures. Don’t make the same mistake I did.”
s.h.i.+ Shang lamented to his buddies.
However, Lu Zhou, Huang Guangming, and Liu Rui looked weird.
Huang Guangming was the first to speak.
s.h.i.+ Shang burped and said, “What?”
Huang Guangming: “Why do I feel like…”
Liu Rui ended it for him. “… You’re humble bragging.”
Lu Zhou quietly nodded.
s.h.i.+ Shang rubbed his nose and smiled.
“… What do you mean humble brag… I’m not Lu Zhou, does it look like I would humble brag?”
Huang Guangming: “…”
Liu Rui: “…”
Lu Zhou: ? ? ?
They finished eating dinner at 8 p.m.
There was still a lot of food left but the alcohol was gone.
The three originally planned to get s.h.i.+ Shang wasted. However, they had Liu Rui with them.
As usual, Liu Rui was the first to get wasted.
Like before, he slammed his head on the table and didn’t move.
Huang Guangming and Liu Rui came here in s.h.i.+ Shang’s car, but obviously, no one could drive in this state.
Lu Zhou had to call w.a.n.g Peng and ask him to drive s.h.i.+ Shang to the Purple Mountain Hotel.
Liu Rui and Huang Guangming had been living at the hotel for the few days prior to the wedding.
Before s.h.i.+ Shang got in the car, he patted Lu Zhou’s shoulder.
“The wedding is the day after tomorrow, thank you in advance!”
Lu Zhou smiled and said, “Don’t worry, I won’t let you down!”
s.h.i.+ Shang said, “I’m talking about the best man.”
Lu Zhou: “…?”
What else could you be talking about…
