Chapter 1050 - He Knows That I'm Waiting For Him
Cheng Xiyue reacted for quite a while.
[ Really? That’s impossible, right? Back in Leland, you made him suffer so miserably. How could he not take that into consideration and still want to get involved with you? ]
The corners of Lu Huaiyu’s lips curled up slightly.
[ The one who used 10 million to win a nine-figure prize last year was Gambler. He should also know that the person who won the most last year was me, so he has come again this year and bet the same 10 million as last year. ]
Cheng Xiyue had heard him mention this matter previously. At that time, Lu Huaiyu had only had his suspicions, but now it seemed to be confirmed.
[ Even so, people might not be fishing for you, right? Maybe he just likes to gamble on horses? ]
The grudge between these two people was too deep. Cheng Xiyue had always felt that if he were Gambler, he would definitely go around Lu Huaiyu for the rest of his life.
It was too bad!
Lu Huaiyu’s well-defined fingers lightly tapped on the screen.
[ His repayment date is approaching soon. ]
Last year, Gambler had entered the arena with 10 million and successfully turned the tables, returning the second debt.
So this year’s 10 million was his way of provoking him.
Cheng Xiyue did not fully understand his thinking but Lu Huaiyu’s judgment on this kind of thing had never been wrong.
Since he was certain that Gambler had done this on purpose and was waiting for him to accept the challenge, then it should not be too far off.
[ Then I really don’t understand. He suffered such a huge loss at your hands previously, why is he still doing this now? ]
A casual smile flashed across the corners of Lu Huaiyu’s lips.
It was precisely because of this that Gambler had made up his mind to gain back a victory.
[ In the previous match, he must have lost very unwillingly. ]
Cheng Xiyue was speechless to the extreme and replied with a long string of question marks.
[ ??? Unwillingly? Just unwillingly? Lu Er, to be honest, if I were him, with what you did previously, I would remember you for the rest of my life! ]
He thought for a while and quickly added another sentence.
[ Forget it, let’s not talk about that. So, what do you plan to do this time? ]
Lu Huaiyu was quiet on the other end for a long time. Just when Cheng Xiyue thought that he would not reply, he finally sent a message.
[ It’s difficult to decline hospitality. ]
Cheng Xiyue stared at these four words, and his eyelids twitched fiercely.
The first day of the horse race had been grand and lively, and everything had gone smoothly.
After the races had ended, Shen Li had specially gone to look for Qingfeng and gave him a meal as a reward.
After that, she followed Old Master Gu and the others back to the Gu family home.
After dinner, she went back to her bedroom, pulled out a chair in front of her desk, and sat down. She turned on her computer.
Her fair fingers tapped on the keyboard a few times, and a hexagram icon appeared on the screen.
The L in the middle was particularly eye-catching.
She stared at it for a few seconds, but did not click it open like last time.
After all, she did not really want to hear Wen Xiao’s crazy chatter.
However, whatever she did not want would soon come.
Just as this thought flashed through her mind, the phone that she put aside began to vibrate. It was Wen Xiao calling.
After considering it for a moment, she eventually still answered the call.
“Ah Li, I heard on the news that Qingfeng won the championship, right? He won quite a lot today, didn’t he?” Wen Xiao’s voice carried a hint of ridicule.
When this little ancestor won money, her mood was usually a little better than usual.
That was why he had made this call.
Shen Li bent one leg and said calmly, “It wasn’t too bad. Qingfeng was the champion horse last year so the odds weren’t high.”
Wen Xiao snorted.
“What’s the big deal about the odds not being high? You placed a high bet, so wouldn’t you still earn more?”
Shen Li said,”It was quite a lot. It’s enough to pay one-fifth of the third payment of the debt.”
Wen Xiao was silent.
She really could not be blamed for earning less. It could only be said that she owed too much.
He thought for a moment and said straightforwardly,”Why don’t you just not pay it back? Didn’t you also say that he has never urged you to pay back the money?”
Directly reneging on the debt.
That would be so easy.
“Anyway, all your personal information has been hidden by Red Shield. As long as you don’t take the initiative to reveal it, no one will be able to trace it back to you.”
Moreover, from his point of view, Saint did not seem to have thought to investigate her in the first place.
Shen Li’s eyelashes moved slightly.
“Then wouldn’t I have returned the first two debts in vain?”
Since she had decided to return it from the start, it was better to return it all.
It would be meaningless if she decided not to pay him back halfway through.
Wen Xiao thought for a moment and lightly clicked his tongue, “That’s true.”
Actually, he felt that in the end, this little ancestor was just too proud.
When she had first gone to Leland, it was because she had too much confidence in himself that she had dared to play such a big game. In the end, there had been someone better than her. She had ended up being cheated and ultimately owed a large debt.
Later on, it had been the same with paying back the money. She had been unable to take it lying down. No matter what, she had resolved to pay back the money.
That was because only by paying back the money cleanly would she be equal to the other party.
Otherwise, she would forever be dwarfed by him.
Wen Xiao knew her too well.
“Oh right, the horse race event has started. Is he coming this time?”
Shen Li said, “No. But… soon.”
When Wen Xiao heard this, the hand that he was using to reach out for his cigarette box slowed down.
“Are you that sure?”
Shen Li acknowledged.
“He knows that I’m waiting for him.”
So, he would definitely come.
The second day of the competition was even livelier than the day before.
Flags fluttered in the air above the competition grounds. There was a sea of people in the stands, and the atmosphere was fiery. It was as if even the blazing sun of August was slightly inferior.
Today’s competition process was exactly the same as the previous day. There were still four preliminary matches, and the first two sides of each preliminary match entered the final match.
After the lesson he had learned yesterday, Yu Pingchuan decided to place all his bets with Lu Huaiyu and Shen Li today.
However, there was still a small problem: the opinions of these two people were not always the same.
The two people placed the same bets in the first match. In the second and third matches, Shen Li and Lu Huaiyu had disagreed with each other. In the end, the horses she had chosen won second and fourth place respectively.
Yu Pingchuan struggled for a long time. First, he had followed Lu Huaiyu for one match, and then he followed Shen Li for another.
One win, one loss.
Fortunately, the two of them had their eyes on the same horse in the last match, and they successfully bet on the winner. In conclusion, that meant three wins and one loss. Yu Pingchuan had gained a lot.
Time passed, and soon it was the final round again.
Yu Pingchuan looked at the two of them nervously.
“What number is this match?”
This was the final round, and the scale of this match was even larger than the previous preliminaries. If they were to lose accidentally, they might even lose all the money that they had won previously.
Shen Li and Lu Huaiyu spoke at the same time.
“Number Three wins alone.”
“Number Three wins alone.”
When Yu Pingchuan heard this, his heart was finally at ease. He said happily, “You two are of the same opinion, right? That’s good, that’s good! I’ll bet on Number Three winning alone for this match!”
He had originally been worried that the two of them would make different choices and he would end up being conflicted again.
Fortunately, they both had their eyes on number three!
Gu Tinglan listened from the side. His gaze lingered on the two of them for a moment before he jokingly said, “Aren’t the two of you a little too unanimous? Not to mention the preliminary rounds, but your choices in the finals are always the same.”
