Heroes of Marvel - Chapter 38
CHAPTER 38 *HIDDEN*
At three o’clock in the afternoon, the bells sounded on school closing time and Lin Rui packed up his bags and prepared to go home. They made an appointment to go to Harry’s house together tomorrow, which is a party as they haven’t been together for so many days. And Lin Rui finally found out the difference between Tom, so he came to Tom after school.
“Hey! Man, did you meet a girl recently? You are not talking with us, Are you trying to hide her” Lin Rui put his hands on Tom’s shoulders and asked with a smile.
But to Lin Rui’s surprise, Tom suddenly shrugged and shook his hand off his shoulder. “It’s all right. I just made some new friends.”
“Er… Really? It’s good to make new friends, but you won’t forget your old friend, will you? Lin Rui awkwardly put his hand down and continued.
Hearing Lin Rui’s words, Tom suddenly stopped, and Lin Rui beside him stopped, looking curiously at Tom. However, he found that Tom was staring at him.
“No, I won’t forget that you are my best friend.” Just as Lin Rui was getting worried, Tom finally answered his question.
“Ha ha! I knew it! Come on, Let’s go home together!” Haha, Lin Rui once again put his arm around Tom’s shoulder and laughed. This time, Tom didn’t shake his shoulders anymore.
But when Lin Rui and Tom came to the school gate, Tom stopped again. Following Tom’s eyes, Lin Rui saw several tall boys standing outside the school gate, They looked like they were the school basketball team.
“I made an appointment to play with them today, so I can’t go home right now.” Looking at Lin Rui, Tom said lightly.
“Well, go ahead, I’ll go home first.” Taking his hands off Tom’s shoulder, Lin Rui said with a smile.
Then Tom walked out of the school door and left with the team. Looking at Tom’s departure, Lin Rui had an unknown look in his eyes. Then Lin Rui shook his head and was about to step out of the school door and go home.
However, just as he walked to the side of the road and was ready to ride his bicycle, a black limousine suddenly stopped in front of him.
“Eh? Harry?” Looking at the unknown luxurious car, Lin Rui wonders. But the next moment he knew he was wrong.
When the door opened, a robust man of about 1.85 meters in height wearing a suit stepped out of the copilot seat of the car and came directly to Lin Rui.
“Who are you?” He wondered why he was blocked here, Lin Rui asked, looking up at the man in front of them. Although he was smaller in size than his opponent, Lin Rui was not afraid at all. He didn’t know how many methods he had already thought of to get rid of him.
“Mr. Jackson Lin?” Without answering Lin Rui, the man first asked Lin Rui’s identity.
“It’s me.” Seeing that the man was polite, Lin Rui agreed.
“Mr. Stark has invited you!” Without beating around the bush, the big man standing in front of Lin Rui said directly.
“Oh, Mr. Tony Stark? It’s really my pleasure!” Lin Rui’s face appropriately showed some surprise. In fact, just after a little thought, Lin Rui had already guessed who might have sent this person. Besides Tony, Lin Rui had no idea who he had provoked.
“Please!” The big bodyguard turned around and opened the back door for Lin Rui, saying politely.
“Well, thank you.” Without pretension, Lin Rui said thanks and got into the car. He had been waiting for this day for almost a week and he was beginning to think that Miss Pepper had not spoken to Tony.
The door closed and the bodyguard sat back in the front copilot seat. Subsequently, the two limousines sped away from Empire State High School. At the school gate, many students who had not left saw the scene just now. At this time, they were discussing who had just picked up Lin Rui to leave. But no one would have guessed that it was Mr. Stark’s invitation.
The interior decoration of the luxury car is simple, but the interior space design and seat material make Lin Rui feel comfortable. After getting into the car, Lin Rui didn’t talk to the driver and the bodyguard in front of him. Instead, he took out his cell phone and sent a message to his Dad telling him that he will be late as he is going to get some news, maybe he can take some pictures that can be on the news. And his dad’s response was quick, asking Lin Rui to arrange his own time to go home. It seems that this dad is still very confident about Lin Rui.
Putting down the phone, Lin Rui began to think about Tony’s motivation. One of the reason must be because Pepper told him about him, but he was only invited after so many days, what happened?.
Lin Rui, of course, could not guess that Tony had always regarded Lin Rui as another group of people, so he was very carefully investigated. Tony was puzzled by the results of the survey. Lin Rui was really only a high school student with an innocent background, so he invited Lin Rui to meet with him today.
Thinking silently along the way, time passed quickly. When the speed slowed down, Lin Rui was able to see the Stark Industries building just outside the window.
The decelerated car finally stopped in front of the gate of Stark Industries Building. Before Lin Rui moved, the front co-pilot’s bodyguard got off. As before, He opened the door for Lin Rui quickly and politely.
“Thank you!” Thank him again, Lin Rui’s feet are already on marble, which is obviously not cheap, in front of Stark Industries.
Looking up at the landmark New York building, Lin Rui had to admire Tony as a super genius. He also participated in the design of the building, and the top floors were completely transformed into his own private laboratory, which contained many ongoing high-tech experimental inventions.
“Please!” Just when Lin Rui wanted to see more, the other bodyguard reached out in front of him and made an inviting gesture.
“Yes.” With a promise, Lin Rui followed him into the first-floor lobby of the Stark Industries Building.
For the unfamiliar young face led by Tony’s bodyguards into the hall of the first floor of Stark Industries Building, the people around him showed appropriate doubts, but they did not pay too much attention. It’s just a high school student. It’s not worth the trouble of these high-tech talents. However, when they saw the direction that they were going, their faces gradually changed.
The bodyguard led Lin Rui to an elevator. Without waiting, the elevator had opened on its own initiative. It seems that this should be Stark’s private elevator, usually, only a few people can use it, today Lin Rui can also enjoy this treatment.
“Please!” Without entering the elevator, the bodyguard reached out at the door and said that he had no intention of going in.
“Well, thank you!” Without further questions, Lin Rui lifted his legs and walked into the elevator.
There was another soft noise, and the elevator door closed quickly. Looking at the buttons on the floor, Lin Rui found that there were over ninety floors and that he was going to the eighty-eight floor, which was not far from the top.
“It seems to be a private meeting, but why does it feel so high-profile?” Secretly thinking of the form of this meeting, Lin Rui unconsciously muttered a sentence. Maybe Tony feels that’s a very low profile.
Hu Hu Hu
Lin Rui resisted the urge to take pictures on his mobile phone and start moving as the specially designed transparent elevator rose at a high speed and looked out at the bustling scene of New York. Now that I have entered the Stark Tower, I can’t lose face in front of Tony.
“Pepper, this little fellow? He seems quite pleasant and his performance along the way is mature and steady. During a private break on the ninety-eighth floor, Tony leaned on the sofa and looked at the screen in front of him and said to Pepper, who was sitting opposite him.
“It’s rare that Tony Stark has a day where he will praise a young man!” Hearing Tony’s words, Pepper laughed and said. Tony is one of the top geniuses of the world so his arrogance is not small. Lin Rui must be quite good for him to make such an assessment.
“I didn’t rule out that he is pretending. This young man is very strange!” Tony added a quick line to Pepper’s joke.
“I don’t care what you think of him. At least you haven’t investigated his relationship with any forces. You can’t embarrass me when you meet with him later.” The screen showed that Lin Rui was approaching and Pepper stood up and said to Tony seriously.
“I know, I will try not to be a Stark.” Tony reluctantly put his hand up in assurance, it is another matter if he can do it or not.
After less than 30 seconds, the elevator climbed up to the eighty-eight-story. Following the open elevator door, Lin Rui stepped out.
“Jackson! I finally met you again! Last time I didn’t even thank you!” Lin Rui just stepped out of the elevator and Pepper came over and smiled and greeted him.
“Hello, Miss Pepper! I am very glad that you invited me!” Politely shaking hands with Miss Pepper, Lin Rui deliberately said so.
“I didn’t invite you to come over. Didn’t you say that you worship Tony last time? This time he invited you!” Hearing Lin Rui’s words, Pepper stood back a little, revealing Tony sitting behind her.
After Pepper let go, Lin Rui finally saw Tony sitting on the back sofa (although he had seen him as early as he was out of the elevator). However, Tony apparently had no intention of standing up and saying hello to him.
“Ah! Mr. Tony Stark! Nice to meet you! I am Jackson Lin, you have always been my idol!” Since Tony didn’t take the initiative, Lin Rui had to say hello to herself. Anyway, he already said before that he was Tony’s fans, which is normal.
Walking quickly to the sofa, Lin Rui reached out to Tony with his right hand, like a little fan asking for a handshake. Tony, however, has no movement. He is a cleanliness addict and generally does not touch other people casually.
“Tony!” Just as Lin Rui was a little embarrassed, Pepper shouted.
“I know! Hello, I am Tony Stark.” After being stared at by Pepper, Tony reached out reluctantly and gave Lin Rui a simple shake.
“Well, Mr. Jackson, let’s have a good chat next.” Turning back, Tony looked at the young man standing in front of him and said softly.
