Chapter 1023 - Internal Strife in the Gu Family
The third master of the Gu family had actually come as well.
Everyone looked over in surprise.
The appearance of the second master of the Gu family was already very surprising. With the addition of the third master of the Gu family, this scene was truly extraordinary.
“What treasures does this auction have that has attracted the two masters of the Gu family to come?”
“I’m looking at the second master of the Gu family and the third master of the Gu family. Why didn’t they know the other was coming? Moreover, this atmosphere… no matter which way I look at it, it can’t be said to be harmonious…”
“There have been rumors in Hong Kong City that the masters of the Gu family are fighting in private, especially these two. They had a public quarrel at the horse race, but now it’s at the auction in the Capital…”
“Tsk, that’s the Gu family after all…”
“These masters of the Gu family have never appeared together in any auction before, right? Are they going to completely fall out with each other now? I guess there’s going to be a good show today!”
The crowd discussed this matter animatedly, and many speculations arose.
Although the people who had come today were all famous people from all walks of life, those who could be compared to the Lu family in the Capital and the Gu family in Hong Kong City were as rare as phoenix feathers and qilin horns.
Therefore, Gu Tingchuan and Gu Tingyun appearing together today undoubtedly became the focus of everyone’s attention.
Lu Huaiyu remained expressionless, and the corners of his lips curled up into a smile:
“Third Master Gu.”
Gu Tingyun looked at the two of them and smiled.
“Why aren’t you going in? The auction is about to start, right?”
Seeing his face now, Gu Tingchuan thought of the few photos that he had posted in his family group last night. The more he had looked at them, the more annoyed he had become.
Don’t think that he did not know what Gu Tingyun was up to by postponing his meeting for the next two days and coming to the Capital ahead of schedule!
Other than that meal, today’s auction was the most important thing, right?
However, it’s useless for him to come early. Ah Li was still not with him, right?
Thinking of this, Gu Tingchuan finally felt a little better. He snorted coldly, turned around, and was about to walk in.
However, at this moment, there was another commotion from behind.
Everyone looked in that direction.
A group of people came over. The person walking at the front was none other than…
“Why is this person here too?!”
The person who had just arrived was Gu Tingfeng.
Compared to Gu Tingchuan and Gu Tingyun, this Master Gu had gradually shifted his assets to the Capital in recent years. His wife, Liang Su, and his son, Gu Siyang, had also settled down in the Capital. Thus, the many aristocratic families in the capital were much more familiar with him.
Even so, his attendance at the Bo Xing auction today was still very shocking.
That was because the second master and the third master of the Gu family had already arrived before him.
“God… What’s going on? Apart from the fifth master of the Gu family, all three of the Gu family members have actually come here?”
“This situation… could it be that the Gu family is going to change?”
“But I haven’t heard about how Old Master Gu is doing…”
“The waters run deep in the rich and powerful families, especially those like the Gu family. Who knows how many secrets are hidden under the surface? How can outsiders know about it so easily?”
“That’s true. With these few people appearing together, even if you think about it with your toes, it must mean that something big is happening! As for the fifth master of the Gu family, compared to these few brothers, he’s much younger. How can he be their match?”
“The Gu family’s business has long been divided up among these few people and firmly occupied by them. Is it possible for the fifth master to still have a share? I heard that he only has a few wineries now. Oh, I think he even opened a private psychology clinic in the Capital where he can earn from the consultation fees and so on. Even if he came today, he probably wouldn’t be able to compete with them! Why would he come here to humiliate himself?”
“Tsk, if that’s the case, the fifth master of the Gu family is really pitiful…”
At a private psychologicy clinic in the Capital, Gu Tinglan was looking at the medical records in his hand when he suddenly sneezed.
He rubbed his nose and muttered, “Who’s talking about me behind my back…”
When he saw Gu Tingchuan, Gu Tingyun, and Lu Huaiyu before him, the smile on Gu Tingfeng’s face immediately froze.
What’s going on?
Why were all of them here?!
“Big Brother.” Gu Tingyun reacted the fastest and greeted him with a smile.
Gu Tingchuan frowned, feeling even more unhappy.
What did he mean by this? He had been staying in the Capital all day. One moment, he asked to go to Ah Li’s house for dinner, and the next moment, he was going to deliver gifts to Ah Li. And just like that, was he actually here today to snatch something?
This was too much.
He also called out. However, the second master of the Gu family had always been a straightforward person, so he was displeased. Even his own big brother did not give him much face, so naturally, the expression on his face did not look pleasant.
The people around them looked at each other in dismay.
Had the relationship between these few masters actually deteriorated to such an extent that they did not even bother to put on a show?
Thinking about what would happen later, Gu Tingfeng felt annoyed.
“Alright, let’s not stand here. Let’s go in first.”
Thus, one after another, the masters of the Gu family took their seats under everyone’s gazes.
The most important point was that their seats were in the same row and were next to each other.
Many people exchanged glances with each other. They would not be tearing each other apart here later, would they?
Lu Huaiyu invited them to take their seats first, but he was the last one.
Coincidentally, his seat was only one aisle away from Gu Tinglan’s.
Just as he sat down, he suddenly caught a glimpse of two familiar figures at the entrance.
His expression froze, and he slowly focused his gaze.
Fang Yunyi was leading Shen Li in this direction, and there were a few ladies and socialites beside her.
It had been a long time since Fang Yunyi had been in the Capital. Now that she had returned a month ago, many people wanted to connect with her.
So even though she was only here to participate in an auction, she still met many people who came over to greet her.
The only thing Fang Yunyi wanted to do today was to take her daughter shopping. She was too lazy to deal with these other people.
The little bit of time she had was not even enough for her to talk to Ah Li, how could she give any of it to these outsiders?
Plus, she was a cold and elegant beauty. Just by standing there, her aura seemed to spread out 2.8 meters, making her even more difficult to approach.
With just one glance, Lu Huaiyu could tell that Fang Yunyi’s patience had almost run out.
Just then, a middle-aged woman smiled and said,”Eh, Mrs. Lu, are both you and Shen Li wearing rubies today? It looks good together.”
Fang Yunyi immediately stood still.
She tilted her head slightly.
“Ah Li is wearing the same pigeon blood-red colored gems as mine. What do you think? Aren’t they beautiful?”
Lu Huaiyu closed his eyes and held his forehead.
