Chapter 1008 - A Family Should Be Warm
Old Master Gu had given her a private plane.
In the backyard of the mansion, Shen Li looked at the “Tangtang” that was emblazoned on the side of the plane and was silent for a moment.
Gu Tingfeng explained with a smile, “There’s a landing pad on the roof of the building on Wulin Road so it’ll be convenient for you to use it.”
Shen Li was speechless.
So that’s what he meant by “convenient”…
Old Master Gu said, “That means that you can come back here anytime you want.”
Shen Li felt something stirring in her chest. After a moment, she said softly,”Thank you, Grandpa and Grandma.”
Gu Tinglan stood by the side with one hand in his pocket.
Gu Siyang turned to look at him and lowered his voice.
“Uncle, where’s your present?”
Without waiting for Gu Tinglan to speak, he said to himself,”Sigh, forget it. In any case, given the current situation, I definitely wouldn’t be able to win anyway.”
As he spoke, he let out a long sigh filled with melancholy.
“Sigh, this family is really getting more and more difficult to live in!”
He had originally thought that his present was quite ingenious! One had to know how carefully he had selected the color of the car’s body, the rims, the material of the seats, and even the color of the interior lights!
In the end, he had instantly been reduced to dust.
Gu Tinglan nonchalantly said, “What you give is not the most important thing. The most important thing is that Ah Li likes it. Moreover, trying to win Ah Li’s attention and liking by giving her a gift… this mentality is not advisable, otherwise, it will be easy to lose balance.”
Gu Siyang secretly glanced at the sullen Gu Tingchuan and the smiling Gu Tingyun. He was deeply convinced.
“Hey… that’s true!”
It was obvious that the two of them had not known that Old Master Gu would be giving her a private jet.
Otherwise, it wouldn’t be his father’s turn to give them a private jet!
Second Uncle aside, on Third Uncle’s side, the landing pad at the top floor of the Gu Media building was bigger than the one on the building on Wuling Road…
“Besides, looking at Ah Li’s character, the thought behind the gift is more important than whether the gift is valuable or not. Look at the gifts given by Siqi and Sicheng. Doesn’t she like them too?”
This was true.
Gu Siyang gave him a thumbs up.
“Uncle, you’re truly a professional!”
Gu Tinglan smiled.
It was at that moment that Qi Yang came to invite them back for dinner.
Just as Shen Li turned around, Gu Tinglan raised his voice slightly and called out to her.
Shen Li turned around. “Uncle?”
Gu Tinglan smiled.
“Today is your birthday. Would you like to drink some wine to celebrate? I specially brought back a few bottles of wine from the Bai City winery this time.”
Compared to his brothers, the fifth master of the Gu family was much more free-spirited. He did not interfere much in the family business and kept a low profile.
Compared to the status of the fifth master of the Gu family, Doctor Gu’s reputation was more prominent.
At the same time, he was also a person who knew how to enjoy life.
Just because he liked wine, he was qualified to be a WM level one wine taster. There were less than twenty people in the world who had this qualification certificate.
The largest winery in Bai City was his.
Shen Li blinked and subconsciously looked at Shen Zhijin.
She had a dark history of drinking with Shen Zhijin. Without his approval, even if it was wine, she would…
A faint smile appeared on Shen Zhijin’s handsome and clear face. The was an indulgent look in his eyes.
“Today is your birthday. If you want to drink, you can drink, but be careful of the amount.”
Of course, Shen Li’s alcohol tolerance not very high so the last half of the sentence was basically meaningless.
However, this already represented his attitude.
Shen Li smiled at him. “Thank you, Dad.”
Then, she looked at Gu Tinglan. “Little Uncle, I can drink a little.”
Gu Tinglan smiled and nodded.
“Okay. This time, I brought back five bottles of wine from three wineries. Later, you can decide which one suits your taste the best and that winery will be your birthday present today.”
Shen Li was shocked.
Gu Siyang’s eyes suddenly widened as he looked at Gu Tinglan in disbelief.
What had he just heard?
His uncle wanted to gift her a winery?
Wait, then why had he spouted out so much nonsense earlier?!
Sensing his gaze, Gu Tinglan finally gave him a look.
Gu Siyang pointed at Shen Li and then at him, his expression slightly distorted.
“Uncle, didn’t you say that with Ah Li’s personality, giving her a thoughtful gift would be best?”
This was too sudden!
Gu Tinglan nodded.
“Yeah, but I’m not her.”
He still had to pay more attention to other things when he gave gifts.
Gu Siyang was dumbfounded.
After a long time, Gu Siyang finally snapped back to reality and could not help but mutter,”… Uncle, I thought you were a clean stream in the family, I didn’t expect you to also…”
Gu Tinglan smiled gently.
“We’re all part of the same family. What are you talking about?”
Gu Siyang was at a loss for words.
What a waste of emotion!
At the dining table, Shen Li’s eyelids twitched as she looked at the five-layer cake being carried up.
Old Madam Gu smiled and urged her,”Ah Li, come and cut the cake.”
Shen Li did not have time to think too much and started to cut the cake according to Old Madam Gu’s instructions.
After distributing the cake to everyone in turn, Shen Li already felt tired.
To be honest, she was not even this tired after a race on the track.
In the end, everyone even took a family photo together.
Old Master Gu showed the photo to Old Madam Gu.
“Ah Qing, look at this photo. Isn’t it a good photo? Ah Li is back today. Although this birthday party is a little simpler, everyone is very happy. Not bad.”
Old Madam Gu also smiled and nodded.
“That’s right. When a family is together, even if it’s just an ordinary meal, it’s still very warm. Ah Li, don’t you think so?”
Shen Li did not say anything.
Today, she finally understood the word “simple” again.
She raised her glass and drank the half glass of wine in one gulp.
