On the second day after returning from the He family house, Jiang Chen had a long talk with his parents.
Since he was reborn, he did not deliberately keep them away from everything he did. Yang Si often cleaned his room for him. Perhaps she had been puzzled by the computer that was always on in his room, but she had never touched his desk computer. Otherwise, it was likely that some clues would have been discovered long ago.

This trust and respect made Jiang Chen feel both warm and distressed. He thought that if his parents found out and asked him, he would be able to explain to them in a logical manner why he suddenly fell in love with computers and became good at it so quickly, but he never thought despite a long time having passed they still never mentioned it.
Now he was about to sign a contract with Li Nanfeng soon, and he would be busy in the future juggling studies and his career. Moreover, their current family situation was not financially well-off, but he would not be able to give the bank card to his parents for home use without explaining things clearly.
Therefore, he decided to inform his parents of all his actions that did not involve the secret of his rebirth, including the reason why Yang Tianci’s family suddenly owed debts.
After talking about all the events that took place in the four months from mid-March to mid-July, Jiang Chen put the bank card on the coffee table and lowered his eyes slightly, those handsome features unable to hide his uneasiness and nervousness.
Jiang Zhuo and Yang Si looked at each other, they knew ll along that their son had undergone many changes, but they never thought that so many things had happened to him during this period of time, let alone that in places they couldn’t see, he had silently done so much for their family.
Yang Si’s eyes were red, she gently held Jiang Chen in her arms, and said in a low voice, “Chen Chen, thank you for your hard work.”
Jiang Chen was stunned for a moment, and the look in his eyes was a little nervous when he raised them: “Mom, don’t you think my methods of dealing with the Yang family are too…..”
“They did it to themselves!” Yang Si interrupted him, looking into his clear eyes, her nose stinging from suppressed tears: “It’s because Mom is too useless, if it wasn’t for Mom who couldn’t let go of the Yang family, you don’t need to use this method to send Yang Tainci to prison to prevent the Yang family from harassing us again, but those who specialize in debt collection are too dangerous. Chen Chen, we don’t want the money the Yang family owes us, and you musn’t have any contact with them in the future.”
Jiang Chen looked at Jiang Zhuo, Jiang Zhuo patted him on the shoulder, and said with red eyes: “Listen to your mother, we don’t want that money.” After a pause, he said: “It’s Dad who is too useless, unable to protect you and your mother well.”
Jiang Chen opened his mouth, but Jiang Zhuo laughed and interrupted him: “But I am very relieved. When you were not born, your mother and I discussed what kind of person we want you to be. We discussed it for three months and even quarreled over this, before finally agreeing.”
Jiang Zhuo looked into Jiang Chen’s eyes: “We hope that you would be sincere and upright but not pedantic, open and candid, kind and tolerant, and you have done it.” He took his wife and son into his arms with a smile, and said, “Son, Dad is proud of you.”
The subsequent conversations all revolved around the anecdotes of Jiang Chen’s childhood. Jiang Chen looked at the happy expressions on his parents’ faces as they were immersed in memories, glanced at the bank card on the table, and smiled slightly. These were his parents.
The next day.
Jiang Chen let go of all his worries, and slept in late for once. However, before it was even nine o’clock, Jiang Chen’s cell phone kept vibrating every ten minutes, non-stop from nine o’clock to half past nine, making Jiang Chen wake up with a rare bed temper.
With his head buried in the quilt, he frowned and said, “Changjiang, turn off all my communication devices.”
The room was quiet, and only the cell phone on the desk was vibrating.
The vibrating sound lasted for more than ten seconds before the room became quiet again, but Jiang Chen was completely out of sleepiness. He lifted the quilt and walked to the desk, clicked on the missed call, and dialed it back.
Li Nanfeng connected the call almost immediately, and he called out: “Ancestor! My living ancestor! If you didn’t answer the phone, I would have personally gone to your community and knocked on the doors one by one!”
Jiang Chen yawned, opened the curtains and said, “Before you didn’t set a specific time for the meeting, I thought it would be in the afternoon.”
“It was indeed afternoon…..” Li Nanfeng was silent for a moment, and said: “But there is someone who wants to see you, and that person is only free in the morning, so I sent someone to pick you up at the gate of your community early in the morning.”
Jiang Chen: “Who?”
“You’ll know as soon as you come.” Li Nanfeng said slyly: “It’s definitely someone who is beneficial to you and not harmful to you. My person is already at the gate of your community. Tell me the apartment number, and I will let them be there soon. They’ll wait downstairs, and won’t delay for a minute.”
Jiang Chen reported the apartment number, and asked: “Shi Fengyue knows which unit my house is, why didn’t you call him before and ask him?”
Li Nanfeng hissed, just imagining it was scary: “Call him? Do you know what would happen if you wake him up on the day he rests? You don’t want to know, big brother will give you a friendly reminder, if it is not absolutely necessary, never disturb his sleep.”
After Jiang Chen changed his clothes, he laughed lightly and said, “Is he very angry when he wakes up?”
“Let’s put it this way, Shi Fengyue’s current temper is like an angel compared to when he was in school. Only when he wakes up, will he switch back to that horrible temper he had in school. And this is just referring to when he gets up by himself, once he is woken up by others, then…..”
Hearing Li Nanfeng’s unfinished words and inhalation, Jiang Chen smiled: “I’m going to wash up, I’ll be down right away.”
Li Nanfeng immediately ended the topic: “Then hurry!”
The Jiang family was not far from the Li De Group, and before ten o’clock, Jiang Chen arrived at Li De’s headquarters.
Li Nanfeng’s assistant had been waiting there for a long time. After recognizing Li Nanfeng’s car, he immediately ran forward to help open the door, and said respectfully, “Mr. Jiang, please.” After seeing Jiang Chen’s appearance, he paused slightly. Although he knew that the protagonist of the emergency meeting at the headquarters yesterday was not very old, he did not expect him to be this young.
Jiang Chen nodded slightly: “Thank you.”
The assistant smiled, walked ahead and led the way. He took Jiang Chen directly to the exclusive elevator that went directly to the top floor.
In the office, a hale and hearty old man sat on the sofa. Li Nanfeng personally made a cup of tea and brought it to the old man.
The old man took a sip of tea and said with a light smile, “Not bad.”
Li Nanfeng breathed a sigh of relief, and said with a smile, “It’s good that Mr. Xiang likes it.”
After the words fell, there was a knock on the door, and the secretary walked in and said in a low voice, “Assistant Yang has brought Mr. Jiang.”
Li Nanfeng stood up and said, “Invite him in.”
Mr. Xiang put down his tea cup and turned his head to look at the door. A surprisingly young boy appeared behind Li Nanfeng’s assistant. After sweeping his eyes over the strangers in the room, he nodded politely before turning his head to look at Li Nanfeng and smiled, “CEO Li, who is this?”
Li Nanfeng walked up to Jiang Chen in three steps and said to him, “This is Mr. Xiang, an academician of the Information Technology Department of the National Academy of Sciences. He mainly studies computer vision. Mr. Xiang, this is Jiang Chen, and he is the make of He Qianyang’s robot.”
Jiang Chen looked at the old man who was exuded prestige, and politely leaned forward slightly: “Hello, Mr. Xiang.”
“Hello, Jiang Chen.” Mr. Xiang nodded, pointing to the sofa next to him: “Have a seat.”
The three sat down, and Mr. Xiang said first: “I have seen the robot you designed, and it is very good, especially in the two aspects of target recognition and machine learning. Could you talk about the way R01 processes this information? For example, image analysis or computational theory.”
Jiang Chen pondered for a moment, then slowly said: “R01 can obtain information from images and multi-dimensional data, not so much because of its image processing and analysis or big data, but because of its decision-making ability…..”
As Jiang Chen talked more, Mr. Xiang sat up straighter. Later, he was so fascinated by what he was listening to, he simply tore off a few sheets of paper from Li Nanfeng’s desk, and made calculations while recording.
After not having been able to discuss his research field with anyone for a long time, Jiang Chen was also very satisfied. He took a sip of tea and saw that Mr. Xiang carefully folded a few pieces of irregularly torn paper, and put them in his inner pocket.
Mr. Xiang: “Xiao Jiang, I heard that you are studying in Yan No. 1 High School, and you will be in the third year of high school next semester?”
Jiang Chen nodded: “Yes.”
Mr. Xiang: “Then have you thought about where to go for university? What major to study?”
“Maybe I will choose Yan University’s computer science major, I——”
“The computer science major at Yan University is indeed good, but if you plan to study artificial intelligence in the future, the mathematics major at Hua University is more suitable for you. If you think the mathematics major at Hua University is good, Grandpa will write you a letter of recommendation and let you directly be accepted to Hua University, what do you say?”
Jiang Chen was taken aback for a moment, then laughed: “Mr. Xiang, I…..”
“Who are you calling Mr. Xiang?” Mr. Xiang said with a smile: “I should be about the same age as your grandpa. You can just call me Grandpa Xiang. After our discussion this morning, we can be regarded as friends despite a difference in age. In the future, if you have any academic or research problems, you can find Grandpa Xiang.”
“Grandpa Xiang.” Jiang Chen followed the advice readily, “I didn’t know that Hua University accepted recommendation letters.”
Li Nanfeng thought in his heart: I know, the last time I saw those schools breaking through the bottom line and snatching people without them needing to even take the college entrance exam was when Shi Fengyue was fifteen years old. He had thought he would see this only once in his life, who would have thought he would be fortunate enough to see it a second time.
“Of course.” Mr. Xiang said with a smile: “The robot you designed could definitely participate in the youth science competition. Although the preliminaries and semi-finals have passed, I have the right to directly recommend it to the finals. The finals will be held in September. It will start in one week, and the results will be released in the second week of October, at that time you will be able to get the admission letter.”
Jiang Chen smiled and said: “I appreciate your kindness, but every moment of my three years of high school is very precious to me, including participating in competitions and the college entrance examination. I don’t want to miss any of it.”
“Even if you are recommended, you can still take the college entrance examination.” Mr. Xiang: “And if you participate in the math competition, you will still be recommended in the end, so it is all the same if you are recommended in advance.”
Jiang Chen said politely, “Grandpa Xiang, I haven’t decided on a major yet.”
“It’s okay.” Mr. Xiang smiled kindly: “You go to Hua University first, and if you want to change your major then, Grandpa will talk to the dean of your mathematics department.”

Seeing Jiang Chen’s conflicted expression, Li Nanfeng poured tea into Mr. Xiang’s cup, and said with a smile: “Mr. Xiang, Jiang Chen is just in his third year of high school, and he may not have thought about which school he would like to go to before, so having him immediately make a choice is a bit too fast. Why don’t you wait and let him have more time to think about it.”
Mr. Xiang pondered for a few seconds, and said to Jiang Chen, “Yan University has done well in academics in recent years, but it is not so good in terms of research. Xiao Jiang, you should think about it carefully.”
AN: Yan University, counting down ten seconds before they also reach the battlefield (just kidding)
