Chapter 1035 - Was Given to Her by Him, so She Probably Didn’t Throw It Away
A cold and deep voice sounded, and the surrounding temperature suddenly seemed to have dropped greatly.
Everyone went silent for a moment, as they remembered that it was too suicidal to mention these things in front of this person.
Ji Shu finally came back to his senses. When his gaze met Lu Huaiyu’s, the indifferent gaze caused his heart to suddenly begin thumping.
His belated desire to live finally forced him to change the topic. He straightened his back, put his fingers together, and said seriously, “Second Master Lu, I can testify that Sister Li threw all those things away!”
At that time, she had not even been able to take a second look!
Lu Huaiyu gave a faint smile.
“Is that so? So she threw them all away?”
Ji Shu nodded firmly. “That’s for sure! Sister Li was dedicated to learning at that time! Why would she put her mind to this? Sister Li, don’t you think so?”
His words were firm and decisive. As he spoke, he did not forget to give Shen Li a look. It was as if he had completely forgotten what he had said at the beginning about Shen Li jumping over the wall to skip class and coming out to compete.
Shen Li curled her fingers and restrained her impulse to make a move.
Forget it. There was still a tournament to prepare for later. If she really took care of matters now, she would have to find a substitute later. It would be too troublesome.
Just then, she felt the man’s gaze fall on her.
She turned her head and met his gaze.
Lu Huaiyu tilted his head slightly and looked at her, deep in thought.
It was different.
Back then, he had given the item to her at Yanhui Mountain.
Surely, she would not throw it away.
Moreover, if she had thrown it away, how had she managed to call him later?
Shen Li felt that the way Lu Huaiyu looked at her was a little strange, so she called out to him again.
“Second Brother? What’s wrong?”
This had happened a long time ago. Surely, he wouldn’t care so much about it, right?
He was still holding her hand. Seeing him like this, she stretched out her finger and gently scratched his palm.
Feeling a tickle from the palm of his hand, Lu Huaiyu came back to his senses and held her little hand that was causing trouble a little tighter.
The little girl was really not afraid at all.
He wiped away the expression that was in his eyes and smiled.
“It’s nothing. It’s just that this is the first time I’ve heard these things about you. I think… it’s quite interesting.”
Shen Li’s little face tensed up as she shook her head seriously.
“It’s all in the past. I don’t even remember it.”
Everyone was speechless.
Wonderful. It was one thing after another.
Wasn’t Sister Li’s desire to survive a little too strong in Second Master Lu’s hands?
Many people shot Ji Shu meaningful looks. Ji Shu looked as if he was facing great difficulties in life.
Sigh, they were all still too young.
In the past, Sister Li had gone to a bar to sit for a while. Ultimately, Second Master Lu had happened to find out about it. Without anyone saying anything, she had obediently left. After that, she had never stepped into any bar again.
What more, this issue now?
He patted the shoulders of the people around him.
Well, they just had to get used to it.
“What are you all standing here for?”
Yang Tao’s voice came with a smile.
There were so many people gathered in the conference room. Was Wen Xiao having a meeting?
As he spoke, he looked inside and spotted Wen Xiao.
But at the same time, he also saw Shen Li and– Lu Huaiyu.
His heart skipped a beat.
“Lu Er, why are you here?”
This was the LY training base, he…
Lu Huaiyu casually said, “I came with Ah Li.”
Yang Tao had actually already guessed this answer. After all, other than Shen Li, there was really no other reason that could persuade him to come to such a place again.
He nodded. “This way…”
Shen Li looked at Yang Tao again.
He seemed… surprised that Lu Huaiyu would come here?
As far as she knew, the relationship between the two of them was quite good. In fact, when she had participated in the last rally, Lu Huaiyu had been seated next to Yang Tao.
Besides, it was just a visit. There did not seem to be anything to be concerned about, right?
She tried to study Yang Tao’s face for more clues, but Yang Tao’s expression had already returned to normal.
She quickly withdrew her gaze.
Yang Tao asked tentatively, “Then, are you guys… going to the training ground now?”
Shen Li shook her head.
“Second Brother and I came here in a hurry today, so we won’t be going there for now.”
She did not plan to race today. Ji Shu and the others would have to figure everything out when they went back. At the very least, they would not continue training on the track today.
Thus, there was no need to go there.
Only then did Yang Tao notice the two of them. He knew that Lu Huaiyu did not want to continue talking about this topic, so Yang Tao quickly changed the topic.
“You guys… came after attending the Bo Xing Auction?”
Shen Li looked at him in surprise.
“How does Director Yang know?”
She remembered that Yang Tao had not been seen at the auction.
Yang Tao smiled and said, “This morning, at the Bo Xing Auction, Tree’s Shadow’s new work, ‘Fog’, was auctioned off for a sky-high price of 75 million yuan. Many people already know about this.”
Once these words were said, the people who were around, went quiet for a moment before they gasped.
“75 million yuan? For a painting?!”
Tree’s Shadow… Wasn’t that their captain… Shen Li?!
For a moment, countless pairs of eyes looked at Shen Li at the same time.
“Sister Li, you earned that much from a painting?”
“Isn’t this so awesome?”
“But the person who paid for the painting is also amazing. The painting managed to be sold at 75 million, just like that?!”
The news of the auction had been spread by the circle of influential people in the Capital, so it was normal that Yang Tao knew about it.
After all, this matter could be considered an explosive piece of news.
Meanwhile, at LY, everyone had been busy with their training and being scolded, so they really had not bothered with news like this.
Even Gu Siyang did not know about this. When he heard this, he had the same look of shock on his face as everyone else.
“F*ck! Sis, who bought your painting? Why did they spend so much money?!”
Even though he was the young master of the Gu family, he definitely could not be so rich and magnanimous!
Shen Li was speechless.
Yang Tao smiled and said, “Director Gu, the buyer is here.”
Gu Siyang was stunned.
His eyes suddenly widened, and he looked at Lu Huaiyu in disbelief.
“… Second… Second Master?!”
Lu Huaiyu raised his eyebrows and nonchalantly said, “Why, do you have any objections?”
Everyone went dead silent, and the air seemed to freeze.
He was admitting it!
No… 75 million just to buy his girlfriend’s painting?!
Feeling greatly agitated, Gu Siyang blurted out,”Were you just trying to show off your affection?”
Lu Huaiyu looked at him with a half-smile.
Shen Li’s temples throbbed.
Yang Tao explained with a smile, “Director Gu, actually, the masters of the Gu family also went to participate in the auction today, but Second Master had still managed to win in the end.”
Gu Siyang was stunned.
He had a look of shock on his face. “Second Uncle came to the Capital as well? Wait, Third Uncle came yesterday… So it was because of this matter?!”
No one answered.
Anyway, it was not the first time that they had witnessed the inhumanity of the Gu family, especially when it was related to Shen Li. After a long time, they had become numb to it.
On the other hand, Wen Xiao turned his head to look at Shen Li when he heard this and laughed with great interest.
Hey, speaking of that, wasn’t the third payment of her debt coming up?
