Chapter 1043 - You Know That This Man is Not to Be Trifled With As Well
Yi Bin was a little surprised.
The boss of Shengguang Media had always been very mysterious and had never appeared in public before. It was unlikely that Second Master would have seen him either. Why did he seem to trust and think highly of that person?
He did not know whether it was an illusion or not, but he always felt that when Second Master mentioned that person, there was a hint of familiarity in his tone.
Could it be that Second Master knew that person?
However, as Second Master’s personal assistant, he was usually in charge of all kinds of affairs, and he had never heard of Second Master having any contact with that person…
However, seeing that Lu Huaiyuhad already made up his mind, Yi Bin tactfully did not ask any more questions.
Although the industry generally favored “Fantasy God Chronicles” and thought that this movie could break the box office record, the Lu Corporation was, after all, named Lu.
“Alright, Second Master.”
Yi Bin took the contract and left. Lu Huaiyu leaned back in his chair and crossed his arms in front of him, deep in thought.
Cinema resources greatly determined the box office results of the film, so the film industry would try its best to arrange the films.
This was especially so when it came to National Day and the Spring Festival, as all parties would be even more aggressive over it.
Yu Media had invested hundreds of millions in “Fantasy God Chronicles,” which was the biggest investment they had made so far.
It was not hard to understand why they had put in so much effort for this film.
Currently, other than the Lu Corporation, many movie theaters in the country were already interested in investing their resources in Yu Media’s movie.
Under these circumstances, “Fantasy God Chronicles” was destined to explode.
The movies that were released at the same time as it would become reduced to cannon fodder.
Under such circumstances, Shengguang Media had actually not made a single move.
Of course, with Shengguang Media’s current size, it was still very difficult for them to fight head-on with Yu Media. For many people, it was only natural for them to accept the circumstances.
The president of Shengguang Media had never been one to sit around and just wait for death.
Furthermore, Shengguang Media was the company that had started the negotiations for “Fantasy God Chronicles”.
However, Shengguang Media had not accepted it.
It was hard to say whether they had not managed to get it or had not wanted to.
After a long silence, Lu Huaiyu chuckled.
“… You’re really confident in yourself…”
The phone on the table rang.
He picked it up and took a look. It was the information of all the horses participating in this year’s horse race sent by Dutian Racecourse.
He opened it and casually flipped through it.
Just then, Gu Tinglan’s call came in and he answered it.
“I’m sure you must have seen the information about the horse racing event, right?” Gu Tinglan asked. “Have you seen anything that caught your eye?”
Lu Huaiyu had not been around during the three competition days of last year’s horse racing event. Gu Tinglan felt that it was a pity, so he had taken the initiative to give him a call this time.
After all, Lu Huaiyu had always been very accurate in this area.
“I just saw it.” Lu Huaiyu pondered for a moment and thought for a few seconds. “No. 7, No. 11, No. 16, they’re all good.”
Gu Tinglan was momentarily stunned, but then he suddenly laughed.
“What a coincidence. Ah Li picked these three horses as well.”
Surprisingly, even though the two of them were not together, they still had the same vision.
In particular, the one sent to Lu Huaiyu did not have any special markings for the horses.
Out of the hundreds of horse races, he had been able to pick the exact same choices as Shen Li.
Lu Huaiyu’s lips curled up slightly, and his voice was filled with unconcealed joy.
“Is that so?”
He had always said that she had good taste.
“Last year, you came late and didn’t play much. Are you going to try this year?” Gu Tinglan asked. “Otherwise, as an SS-member, you’ll only be playing once every two to three years. It would be a waste.”
He was talking about horse betting.
Lu Huaiyu raised his eyebrows. “Why?”
Gu Tinglan had been in charge of the Dutian Racecourse Jockey Club for many years. With his character, he did not seem like the type to take the initiative to bring this up.
“It’s not me, it’s Ah Li,” Gu Tinglan said with a smile, “She seems to be in high spirits this year. Earlier, she specifically asked me if the person in charge of the racecourse could participate in horse betting. I reckon that she played well last year, and this year, it looks like she’s also interested.”
At that time, she had spent 100,000 yuan back and forth, and her winning rate had been pretty good. Unfortunately, the capital had not been high, so her earnings had been low.
This time, it was different.
Gu Tinglan wanted to make her happy, which was why he was asking Lu Huaiyu about this matter.
“Originally, I thought that you could bring her along with you this time. But now it seems that there’s no need.”
Although Shen Li was a newbie and did not have much experience, compared to Lu Huaiyu’s sharp eyes, she did not seem to be lacking.
“She wants to play?”
Lu Huaiyu had previously discussed the matter of the horse race with her, but she had not revealed this thought at the time.
The corners of his lips curled up slightly.
As the horse racing event was about to begin, the whole of Hong Kong City became lively.
At noon on July 31st, Lu Huaiyu arrived in Hong Kong City with Shen Li.
At 1 pm, Shen Li and Lu Huaiyu arrived at the Dutian Racecourse together.
The two of them went to change into their riding attire. When Shen Li came out, she saw that Lu Huaiyu was waiting for her outside.
He was dressed in a pure black riding attire. He was tall and slender, with broad shoulders and narrow waist. Just by standing there, he looked elegant and regal, which was very pleasant to look at.
Many people around looked over there with a faint hint of surprise.
Hearing the sound of footsteps, Lu Huaiyu turned back to look.
Shen Li had changed into a red riding outfit today, which made her look even taller and more slender, elegant and valiant.
The horse trainer led Qingfeng over.
Lu Huaiyu stepped forward and took Qingfeng’s reins from the other party’s hands.
Shen Li looked at them, feeling a little strange. “Second Brother, where’s your horse?”
Lu Huaiyu tilted his head and looked over with a lazy smile.
“Today, I’ll be Miss Shen’s horse trainer.”
Shen Li was stunned. Lu Huaiyu had already led Qingfeng over.
Qingfeng had an unruly temper. Other than Shen Li, no one was allowed to ride on its back.
Even the trainer was only responsible for some daily rearing. If the trainer wanted to do more, Qingfeng would often not cooperate.
However, at this moment, in front of Lu Huaiyu, Qingfeng was unusually obedient. He only stomped his hooves twice before obediently following them.
In front of them, Qingfeng could not help but tilt his head to lean against Shen Li’s shoulder, acting coquettishly.
Shen Li smiled and stroked its head.
Only then did Qingfeng swing his tail in satisfaction.
Shen Li stepped on the stirrup and flipped over to straddle it!
Her movements were extremely clean and neat.
Lu Huaiyu tilted his head slightly.
More than one person had said that Shen Li’s mounting posture was extremely similar to his.
At this moment, he felt… that it was true.
“The weather is too hot, so it’s not suitable to run too vigorously. Shall we just walk first?”
Although Lu Huaiyu was asking, his tone made it sound more like a statement.
Shen Li glanced at Qingfeng.
“Second Brother, I’m fine with it, but Qingfeng has a fierce personality and doesn’t like to walk slowly–”
Before he could finish his words, Lu Huaiyu shook the reins, and Qingfeng obediently took a step forward.
His movements were very reserved and elegant, and he looked like he was just taking a stroll.
Lu Huaiyu raised his eyebrows. “I thought you said he didn’t like it?”
Shen Li did not know what to say.
She bent over and whispered to Qingfeng.
“It seems that even you know that this man is not to be trifled with.”
Lu Huaiyu, who was just about to walk forward, stopped in his tracks. He turned around and said with a faint smile,”Miss Shen, I can hear you.”
