Chapter 299 – Admitted to Peking University
When Lu Xia and Jiang Junmo arrived, they saw the mailman surrounded by everyone, making it difficult to move. Everyone was talking at once, asking if there were any admission notices left to be delivered.
Finally, in a gap between conversations, the mailman had a chance to speak, “Don’t worry, this is just the first batch of notices. Our town only has these two for now. There will be more later.”
Upon hearing this, everyone breathed a sigh of relief.
At that moment, Lu Xia and Jiang Junmo finally arrived.
They were quickly told, “Educated Youth Lu, Educated Youth Jiang, come over here! Your admission notices have arrived, and the mailman specifically brought them for you.”
The mailman also looked at them and asked, “Are you Lu Xia and Jiang Junmo?”
Both nodded, and he handed them two large envelopes.
“These are your admission notices. Congratulations on getting into university. You’re the first ones in our town to receive admission notices!”
Others envied them upon hearing this, their eyes eager to glimpse the contents of the envelopes, wishing they were theirs.
At the same time, while the other students envied, they were also curious about which university had accepted Lu Xia and Jiang Junmo.
Without keeping them in suspense, Lu Xia and Jiang Junmo opened the envelopes in front of everyone, revealing their admission notices.
Lu Xia was a bit excited. Although it wasn’t her first admission notice, for some reason, her hands were shaking.
It wasn’t until she saw the prominent words “Peking University” on the notice that she finally relaxed.
And for some reason, at that moment, she suddenly felt like crying.
She glanced at Jiang Junmo and noticed his eyes were also moist.
Seeing this, Lu Xia grinned, “I got into Peking University!”
Jiang Junmo said, “Me too!”
Just as they finished speaking, the astonishment of others erupted!
“Wow, it’s actually Peking University! Educated Youth Lu and Educated Youth Jiang got admitted to Peking University!”
“They’re really amazing! The best university in the country!”
“Yeah, I knew they could do it. They actually got in!”
Not only the students were excited, but also the villagers. Even if they knew little, they had heard of Peking University.
It was the best university in the country!
Now, hearing that two of their village’s educated youths had been admitted to Peking University, they were ecstatic, even feeling proud.
Even the mailman was a bit excited. This was an admission notice from Peking University, and he had personally delivered it!
After the excitement settled, the educated youths were more envious.
They now guessed that the admission notices were being delivered starting from the best schools. So, in the next period of time, it depended on whether they would receive theirs.
Later, the students looked carefully at Lu Xia and Jiang Junmo’s admission notices, hesitating to touch them, afraid of damaging them. After saying congratulations, everyone finally dispersed.
After Lu Xia and Jiang Junmo returned home, they still felt a bit dreamy.
They opened their admission notices again and saw their names and chosen majors. For Lu Xia, it was English. It confirmed that she had indeed been admitted.
Looking at Jiang Junmo, his face also bore a smile.
Clearly, he had been admitted to the major he wanted.
Lu Xia couldn’t resist hugging him, and though no words were exchanged, they could feel each other’s excitement.
Until… “Mom, Dad, are you having a little brother?”
Lu Xia: “…” She had forgotten there was another family member at home.
They quickly separated.
Then Lu Xia looked at Kang Kang, who was curious, “Who told you that just now?”
“Hu Zi. Hu Zi’s parents were hugging and said they’re giving Hu Zi a little brother. I want a little brother too.”
Lu Xia was speechless, and she quickly gave Jiang Junmo a look, telling him to explain to Kang Kang and forbid him from saying such things in the future.
Jiang Junmo awkwardly touched his nose, then took Kang Kang inside to educate him.
Chapter 300 – Getting Ready to Return to the City
At night, after Kang Kang had fallen asleep, Lu Xia and Jiang Junmo finally had the time to talk properly.
The experiences of the day had been overwhelming, making them feel somewhat surreal. It wasn’t until this moment that they truly realized their efforts had succeeded.
“We both got accepted!”
Jiang Junmo also felt a bit emotional. He knew that his success in the exams was largely thanks to Lu Xia. If it weren’t for her continuous dedication to studying, they wouldn’t have been able to pass in such a short time. And even if they did, their scores wouldn’t have been this good.
Right now, he felt fortunate, as if luck had been on his side since he met Lu Xia.
Thinking about this, Jiang Junmo couldn’t help but hug her. “Xia Xia, thank you!”
Lu Xia smiled in his embrace. “I should thank you too. If it weren’t for you, the academic ace, I doubt I could have gotten into Peking University.”
They both laughed after saying this, and without further words of gratitude, they simply embraced for a while. Then, Lu Xia spoke up, “What’s the plan now? Can we just leave now?”
Jiang Junmo wasn’t entirely sure, “In theory, we should be able to, but there might still be some procedures to follow. I’ll ask tomorrow.”
After discussing this, they were still quite excited and couldn’t sleep. Naturally, one thing led to another, and their marital activities ensued…
The next day, news spread in the village that the local educated youths had been accepted to Peking University.
Everyone was thrilled, and some villagers even brought their children over to visit them. Their intention was to see if their own children had the aptitude for studying and whether they might also get into university in the future.
Lu Xia and Jiang Junmo found it amusing and a bit exasperating.
They didn’t comment on whether the children were suitable for studying, but they explained how to encourage them to study and to follow their methods, which could increase the likelihood of the children being admitted to university.
The villagers were satisfied with this advice and decided to strictly follow it. After all, this advice came from university students of Peking University!
After they left, other educated youths came to visit.
This time, they came to discuss whether they should organize a celebration for them.
Lu Xia directly declined the idea. Only they had received admission notices from Peking University at the educated youth spot. There were undoubtedly others who hadn’t been accepted yet. Holding a celebration now would be like rubbing salt in their wounds.
So Lu Xia thought for a moment and suggested, “Let’s not have a celebration. We’ve already received everyone’s blessings. How about we just gather together before we leave?”
At this point, the educated youths also realized that both of them had received admission notices, which meant they could return to the city.
There was a complex mix of emotions among them, but they knew it was due to the couple’s abilities. So, after offering congratulations, they left and continued to anticipate the arrival of their own admission notices.
Later, Jiang Junmo inquired about the process of returning to the city. He learned that they just needed to bring their admission notices to the educated youth office to complete the necessary procedures, and their files would be directly sent to the university.
This reassured Lu Xia and Jiang Junmo.
After that, they began dealing with their plans to return to the city.
There was still about a month until the Chinese New Year. Lu Xia and Jiang Junmo had already informed the Jiang family about their acceptance into Peking University.
The Jiang family was delighted to hear the news, especially Grandpa Jiang, who wanted them to return home before the New Year.
After discussing it, Lu Xia and Jiang Junmo agreed to the idea.
However, it might not happen immediately.
First, they needed to process their paperwork, and second, they needed to pack their belongings. Considering their own things and Kang Kang’s, it was quite a lot. On top of that, they had to buy tickets in advance.
So, there were still quite a few tasks ahead of them. It wasn’t going to be as easy as they had thought to leave.
