Due to the fact that he had his daughter at an old age, Qin Zhenbang usually doted on his daughter very much and did not have any concept of favoring boys over girls. He believed that if a girl was outstanding, she could also accomplish great things.
In fact, Mu Xue had never disappointed him since she was young. She graduated from Tsinghua University, before concealing her identity and using the name “Mu Xue” to advance her studies abroad.
She had achieved good results in environment-related majors of Oxford and Harvard. When she was only around 20 years old, she already attained the title of Honorary Professor.
Oxford and Harvard tried all sorts of methods to keep Mu Xue in the country and offered extremely tempting conditions, but Mu Xue righteously rejected them.
Seeing that the bribery had failed, the local government did not want to see such a formidable talent return to Country Hua. They even wanted to detain Mu Xue by force. In the end, she revealed her identity as Qin Zhenbang’s daughter and almost shocked everyone. Only then did she successfully return to Country Hua.
Other than that, Mu Xue had practically developed in all aspects, and she had some knowledge in various fields. When they first learned that she had returned to her country, many professors at Oxford and Harvard couldn’t help but lament that in a few years, Mu Xue would develop to a degree that even they had to look up to.
Such a high evaluation showed that they had high hopes for Mu Xue. Moreover, while in university, she had already published papers in the global science and technology magazines. She received high praises from many experts in the industries, and the result of her research, “Light Prism Tower”, was a unique leading technology of the world.
It could be said that Mu Xue had always been the subject of envy to other children since she was young. She had never been overwhelmed by the glory of being the daughter of the Head of State. She was the top scholar in both middle school and college entrance examinations. She could be said to be a genius with monstrous abilities.
With an extraordinary family background, outstanding looks, and talent, she could be said to be both talented and good-looking. Since a young age, Mu Xue had no lack of suitors, but she had no interest in such things. In her eyes, these men were not even as attractive as the laboratory equipment.
However, Shen Fei’s appearance changed her view. More accurately, it was Shen Fei’s outstanding performance in the desert.
Mu Xue was wholeheartedly focused on scientific research and her goal was to improve the environment in Country Hua. It could be said that she didn’t pay attention to the outside world. However, with the great popularity of the desert survival game, she naturally knew about it and began to watch it.
Furthermore, the desert game was closely related to reality, which made her want to investigate it further even more. It was a pity that she was not chosen at the start of the game. Now that such an opportunity was right in front of her, how could she give it up?
However, Qin Zhenbang did not agree. “Are you messing around!? Do you think this is child’s play? A desert survival game? Do you really think the desert survival game is a game? The most important part is survival! Survival, you know!”
One had to know that desert survival was extremely dangerous. Just watching the live stream was enough to make one’s heart leap in trepidation, especially when the players were fighting against those desert creatures. If Mu Xue was the one participating, Qin Zhenbang would absolutely not feel at ease.
Although Mu Xue had also practiced quite a bit of fighting and self-defense, she was still a girl no matter what. She had been pampered since she was young and never had to suffer any hardships. Under that kind of environment, she would never know if an accident would occur before the next day could arrive.
If something happened… Qin Zhenbang felt his high blood pressure rise considerably just thinking of the possible scenario. He spoke very seriously.
“Your mom and I only have one daughter in you. We won’t agree to let you go no matter what.”
It could be said that Qin Zhenbang agreed to everything Mu Xue asked for. Of course, Mu Xue wouldn’t ask for any excessive conditions either. However, he absolutely would not agree this time.
“Dad, I know you treat me the best, so let me go this time.” Mu Xue rarely acted in a childish manner, and Qin Zhenbang was usually very receptive to it. It almost worked for her every time. However, she miscalculated this time.
“No way, we won’t allow it, no matter what you say. Just stay in the laboratory. Didn’t you want to study the things that the desert reflected into the reality? I agreed to it.”
Mu Xue used to be very interested, but now that she had a chance to experience the desert personally, she could put everything else aside for the time being.
“Dad, I’ve never begged you for anything. Please let me go this time, okay?”
Mu Xue pleaded and even shot a look at her mother, Mu Wanyu. However, Mu Wanyu also shook her head despite her expression of sympathy.
“Xue’er, mom can’t help you this time. How can a girl like you go to such a dangerous place like the desert? Your father and I are really worried, so stop fooling around.”
Seeing that her parents did not agree, and Qin Zhenbang was pulling a long face, as if there was no room for negotiation. Mu Xue did not give up easily.
To put it bluntly, the reason why Qin Zhenbang did not agree and was worried was because he felt that her ability was not up to standard. If she could prove herself with her ability, Qin Zhenbang would definitely agree.
Mu Xue stayed up for several nights in a row and rushed to come up with plans after entering the desert. She wrote and edited them, filling the rubbish bin with useless drafts. She didn’t know how many times she had edited them, but she was still unsatisfied and tried her best to make them as perfect as possible.
Other than that, she also went to her uncle in the State Department to consult him on the communication plan.
For the next few days, Mu Xue went out early and returned late. When she finally got home, she locked herself in her room. There was no telling what she was doing.
When Qin Zhenbang saw that she did not mention the matter of entering the desert survival game again, he thought that she had given up. He did not know that Mu Xue was preparing for a big move.
On the other hand, Mu Wanyu was a little worried about Mu Xue’s state. “What do you think this child is busy with every day? Could something have happened?”
“I just went to bring some food for Mu Xue, but she said she didn’t want to eat. She hasn’t been eating well these past few days, and her expression doesn’t look good.”
Qin Zhenbang shook his head. “I think she probably has some new experiment on her hands, that’s why she’s like this. Let her be. If she gets busy, she’ll naturally forget about the desert survival game.”
The saying goes: “a mother knows her daughter best”. Looking at Mu Xue’s tightly shut door, Mu Wanyu felt that things were not that simple. She shook her head.
“You know our daughter’s personality. Ever since she was young, once she set her mind on something, she would do it. She’s the kind of person that no one can hold back.”
Qin Zhenbang disagreed. “Even if that’s the case, can you really bear to let her suffer in that desert survival game? If something happens to our daughter, it’ll be too late for regrets.”
That seemed to make sense. Mu Wanyu nodded. “Let Xue’er be upset for a while. It’ll pass sooner or later anyway. No matter what, I won’t allow her to go to the desert survival game..”
