“What? You’re applying to college?” When Haas heard Jerry’s words, he sat up from the sofa in shock.
He knew that Jerry was a genius, and this had been proven countless times since he was a child. However, he did not expect Jerry to be such a genius.
He finished junior high school in just a year, and now high school is also in just a year. In addition to that, he had taken some college passing tests to enter various colleges around the world.
“Isn’t that a little early?” Haas asked cautiously.
“I mean, it’s not too early. Have you seen that TV Show about Sheldon, who just spent a few years in school and then went to college?” Jerry said with a shrug.
Haas said helplessly, “But that’s a TV show. There’s no Sheldon in reality.”
“Maybe I’ll go to college and bring home a college girlfriend soon after.” Jerry joked.
“Well, I think you’ll do good there. So, I won’t be mad about it.”
In the end, Haas stopped dwelling on it. He was just a little worried that Jerry would be a little uncomfortable going to college at this age and maybe even being accepted to a college that wasn’t even in New York.
But after thinking about it carefully all these years, it seems that Jerry is taking care of him and his sister most of the time. So his worries may really be superfluous.
“When you do get accepted to a prestigious university, I’ll go to the police station and talk about it. I wanted to make the chief a bit jealous about you.” Haas lay back down again.
“What are you guys talking about?” At this time, Belle came out of the kitchen with some curiosity.
“Jerry is going to apply for college in February and has already gotten the documents and letters of recommendation from the school teachers and principal.” Haas shook his head and told Belle the news.
Belle was surprised by it, and a smile appeared on her face as well.
Just as Haas and Belle were discussing which college was better and more suitable for Jerry, the doorbell suddenly rang. Hearing the doorbell ring, both Hass and Belle froze for a moment.
It was Christmas, and no one should be visiting at this time. Haas didn’t have any relatives on his side; on Belle’s side, her family had visited two days before.
“I’ll go check it out.” Belle got up from the sofa and went to the door.
“Excuse me, who are you looking for?” Opening the door, Belle saw two strangers wearing suits.
“Hello, Ms. Belle. We are teachers from the university’s admissions office and would like to talk to you and your son, Jerry Carmen.” The woman, who was probably close to forty or so, came forward and politely introduced herself to Belle.
“The university admissions office?”
Belle had a surprised look on her face. She was discussing with Haas which college Jerry should choose, and here was a college teacher taking the initiative to come to her door for his college acceptance.
“Oh, please come in!” Although a little surprised, Belle still very politely invited the two into the house.
“Excuse me, from which college are you guys from?”
Haas, Belle, and Jerry sat in a row, while two people from the S.H.I.E.L.D. were opposite. Academy admissions office.
The two looked at each other the same way, then smiled and said back, “You may not have heard the name of our college, but our college is currently the best university in the world. Only a very small number of geniuses are admitted each year. The admission criteria is an IQ of not less than 120.”
As S.H.I.E.L.D. operatives, they have a very skilled response plan for this current situation. They did not say the name of the college first, but first said the conditions of entering the college.
Hearing that the conditions were so high, Haas and Belle looked at each other. The IQ of a normal person is about 100, a 110 IQ could be considered outstanding. IQs higher than 120 are very rare to find.
“Given Mr. Carmen’s age and various performances. We have reason to believe that he has an IQ of at least 140 or higher, so we wanted to invite him to our university.”
After the female agent finished speaking, the male agent took out three pieces of paper and then said, without waiting for them to ask, “Because our college belongs to the government’s secret college and is not open to the public. If you want to know more about it, you have to sign this NDA before we can continue.”
“If, in the end, Mr. Carmen refuses our offer, according to the agreement, the three of you can not disclose information about our university.”
Haas and Belle turned their heads together to look at Jerry.
Jerry’s eyes narrowed, and he smiled as he said to them, “I’ll sign it. I also want to know what kind of college it is. If it’s really good, I will seriously consider it.”
Haas and Belle nodded and signed the NDA with a pen, and Jerry signed it. Seeing that all three signed smoothly, They took out the S.H.I.E.L.D. Academy information to the three.
There are the main points.
One is that S.H.I.E.L.D. Academy has the best faculty. Their lecturers are world-famous professors who have the best and most advanced research equipment. It is the most desired university for every genius who dreams of becoming big.
The second is that S.H.I.E.L.D. Academy is affiliated with S.H.I.E.L.D., the most powerful organization in the world.
Three is the S.H.I.E.L.D. Academy will handle all the food and housing learning costs. He will also get pocket money each month, and he can get a job in the governmental sector when he graduates.
In addition to these three points, there are various benefits.
These two agents are good at playing psychological tricks in convincing Haas and Belle that they would be interested in signing Jerry to that college.
Of course, Jerry is certainly unaffected. Because when he knew that the two people were from S.H.I.E.L.D. Academy and S.H.I.E.L.D. Academy is where they train agents for S.H.I.E.L.D. His first reaction is that S.H.I.E.L.D. has already found his true identity.
So, throughout the conversation, he was silently using Legillimency, reading the activities of the two agents’ minds to see if there would be information about knowing that he was the Wizard.
However, he did not get the result he wanted.
