About ten minutes later, another black sedan entered the parking lot in a discreet manner.
Jiang Yuning immediately knew that that was her peer. Therefore, she opened the car door in a decisive manner before stepping out of the car.
The woman who had just stepped out of her car was in fact none other than the well-known folk song singer Yi Fan, who also happened to be Jiang Yuning&x2019;s roommate in college. Yi Fan had short black hair and she was wearing a sexy black dress. Jiang Yuning remembered that Yi Fan was always wearing high heels even during their college days and it seemed as though that habit of hers had continued to this day.
&x201C;It has been such a long time since we have last seen one another!&x201D; Both of them hugged as they greeted each other.
&x201C;Little fairy, you are really popular nowadays. I would see news about you whenever I go online,&x201D; Yi Fan said as she looked at Jiang Yuning.
&x201C;Hahaha. I am nothing compared to everything that you have established in your career!&x201D; Jiang Yuning laughed as she replied in a self-deprecating manner. &x201C;Let&x2019;s stop praising each another already. Aren&x2019;t we here to see Teacher Li? Let&x2019;s go now.&x201D;
The two of them proceeded to make their way to the office of B University&x2019;s music department in a low-key and discreet manner so that no one would recognize them.
When they arrived at the office, they found out that Teacher Li was still in class. Therefore, both of them continued chatting in the office.
&x201C;Hongyu called me a couple of times to tell me about what happened&x2026;&x201D;
&x201C;You&x2026;are you trying to persuade me to be merciful and forgiving towards Hongyu?&x201D; Jiang Yuning asked as she glanced at Yi Fan. &x201C;If she did not provoke me repeatedly in the first place, I would not even be bothered with her.&x201D;
&x201C;You are overthinking this! Although it is a little mean of me to say this, but honestly, I feel that Hongyu can only blame herself for everything that has happened. After all, she was wrong,&x201D; Yi Fan replied with a smile on her face as she rested her elbows on the table. &x201C;I know you very well. You are not the type of person who will sit by and tolerate any nonsense from anyone at all.&x201D;
&x201C;So many years have already passed. How would you know that I have not changed at all?&x201D; Jiang Yuning asked as she looked at Yi Fan with a curious expression on her face.
&x201C;I can tell from the look in your eyes.&x201D;
Both of them continued chatting about all of the interesting events that happened in the past during their freshman year. A short while later, Teacher Li finally returned to the office after her class was over.
As soon as she saw Yi Fan and Jiang Yuning, Teacher Li, who was wearing a pair of glasses, sat down at her desk before she said, &x201C;It has already been so many years since I last saw the both of you. Yi Fan, you are really impressive.&x201D;
&x201C;Teacher Li, how can you be so biased? Am I not impressive then?&x201D; Jiang Yuning asked as she pursed her lips together.
This was because when Jiang Yuning dropped out of college five years ago, Teacher Li was the one who felt the most distressed for her.
&x201C;I do not want to be biased, but someone has been in Luo City for the past few years and yet, she has never returned here to visit me at all,&x201D; Teacher Li replied as she looked at Jiang Yuning.
&x201C;I was too embarrassed to face you.&x201D;
&x201C;Both of you were my favourite and most interesting students, especially you, Yuning. However, I am relieved to see you two doing so well right now. Yuning, I know that I cannot blame you because it must not have been easy for you to start working at such a young age just so you could provide for and look after your own family,&x201D; Teacher Li said as she smiled at Jiang Yuning. &x201C;I am really glad to see you doing so well right now.&x201D;
&x201C;Yes, I am really doing well now.&x201D;
&x201C;Both of you should perform during the fiftieth anniversary celebration, especially you, Yuning. Since you have already accepted the invitation and agreed to attend, then you should not care about what other people are thinking or saying about you. I believe that a person&x2019;s talent is not simply limited or defined by their academic qualifications at all.&x201D;
Jiang Yuning glanced at Yi Fan, who was giving her a look of encouragement at this time.
After that, Jiang Yuning nodded her head before she said, &x201C;Okay, I promise that I will definitely give a splendid performance on that day, Teacher Li.&x201D;
&x201C;Aunt, stop making her feel bad already. She did not want to drop out of college in the past. It was not her fault,&x201D; Yi Fan who was sitting on the sidelines suddenly spoke up for Jiang Yuning.
&x201C;In fact, there is another reason why I am here to see you today, Teacher Li. I have some difficulties that I could use your help with.&x201D; After that, Jiang Yuning took out her cell phone before she sent a copy of the piano piece that she had composed to Teacher Li. &x201C;There are certain parts in this song that I feel require some adjustment and tuning. I would like to ask for your help to make this song perfect.&x201D;
After listening to the song, Teacher Li was so amazed that she opened her eyes wide in surprise. &x201C;You composed this song?&x201D;
&x201C;Yes. Well, it&x2019;s supposed to be a gift for someone really special to me.&x201D;
&x201C;Even though so many years had already passed, you have not forgotten your roots at all. I am really proud to have you as my student. Let&x2019;s try it out and try to refine it in the piano room later.&x201D;
&x201C;Aren&x2019;t you guys too much? Are you just going to leave me behind now?&x201D; Yi Fan asked as she was very upset. &x201C;And Yuning, you are already doing so well as an actress. Are you trying to get into the music industry too?&x201D;
&x201C;No. I composed that song as a gift for someone I love,&x201D; Jiang Yuning explained further. &x201C;Moreover, I have to be obedient and listen to my agent now. She wants me to win a few awards for her next year and therefore, I will not have the time to focus on any music or singing!&x201D;
Yi Fan secretly breathed a huge sigh of relief after listening to Jiang Yuning&x2019;s explanation.
This was because she knew Jiang Yuning&x2019;s strength.
Although Jiang Yuning did not even complete her freshman year at college, she started learning music at a very young age. Therefore, Jiang Yuning&x2019;s music skills and talents were very solid and professional.
If Jiang Yuning had really wanted to march into the music industry, Yi Fan believed that she would be able to do so without any trouble at all.
Fortunately for her, it seemed as though Jiang Yuning had no such plans.
Yi Fan thought about it to herself.
This was because Yi Fan had been thinking about transforming her style to match the popular music genre nowadays. However, she had not been able to compose or come up with any new songs at all.
Yi Fan was surprised when she saw the look on her aunt&x2019;s face after she listened to Jiang Yuning&x2019;s music. Was Jiang Yuning&x2019;s music really that beautifully written?
About half an hour later, Teacher Li brought Jiang Yuning to the piano room before they played her piano piece on the piano. After that, Teacher Li gave Jiang Yuning some very helpful pointers and suggestions to improve her composition.
Jiang Yuning felt that she had made the right decision by coming to B University today. After listening to Teacher Li&x2019;s suggestions, Jiang Yuning was finally able to finalize her song. All that was left now was to fill in the lyrics to match the rhythm.
When Teacher Li finally returned the completed song manuscript to Jiang Yuning, she looked at her with a satisfied expression on her face before she said, &x201C;Yuning, I do not blame you for giving up on music at all, actually. This is because I know that you are a child who loves life and everything and everyone around you. Therefore, I am certain that you will also have the passion and love for whatever you are doing right now. Your acting skills are actually pretty good and I have also enjoyed watching your variety program. You have not changed at all.&x201D;
&x201C;Thank you for being so kind, Teacher Li.&x201D;
&x201C;Hurry up and fill in the lyrics to the song. I think that you should perform this song during B University&x2019;s fiftieth anniversary celebration. You will definitely shine and stand out on that day. I have no doubts about it. When the time comes, you should let everyone see that a degree or a certificate does not prove anything at all because true talent can never be concealed.&x201D;
Jiang Yuning nodded her head before she hugged her favourite Teacher Li.
After that, Jiang Yuning left B University first because she had some other activities on her schedule. On the other hand, Yi Fan accompanied Teacher Li for lunch.
As the both of them were enjoying lunch together, Yi Fan could not help but ask the woman sitting in front of her, &x201C;Aunt, could you please show me the music that Yuning had composed?&x201D;
&x201C;You are used to singing folk music, so her music will not interest you at all. Moreover, I cannot allow you to look at her music without her permission.&x201D; Teacher Li rejected Yi Fan&x2019;s request without thinking much about it.
Yi Fan nodded and she did not pester Teacher Li anymore.
Anyway, she had already secretly recorded the tune that Teacher Li and Jiang Yuning were playing in the piano room earlier. So, what would it matter if she did not have the music score?
Moreover, Yi Fan was certain that this song would definitely be a hit.
Didn&x2019;t Jiang Yuning said that she did not intend to publish this song or release it to the public anyway? She said that it was just a gift for someone special.
So&x2026;no one would be able to find out that she had stolen Jiang Yuning&x2019;s music.
Besides that, she was only using the piano piece that Jiang Yuning composed as a reference. Yuning&x2026;would not be so selfish, would she?
