The Little Brat’s Sweet And Sassy

Chapter 1119 - 1119 The Person You Offended the Most is Your Boyfriend?

1119 The Person You Offended the Most is Your Boyfriend?

She looked down and saw that it was an email.

When she saw the name of the sender, she hesitated for a moment, but still clicked on it.

The email was very short:

[ You beat Saint at Paradise last night?! According to the information that I’ve just found out, Saint is most likely their boss behind the scenes. You’ve ruined his place! You even did it twice! ]

Shen Li had a headache.

Lu Huaiyu casually glanced over and raised his eyebrows.

“It seems to be related to me?”

Shen Li was silent for a moment before she handed the phone over.

“Uncle Wen’s old friend, Uncle Li Yan, is also from Leland. We’ve been here twice, so he’s clear about this.”

Li Yan had been a hacker for a few years when he was young. Later on, when he grew older, he lived a life of retirement in Leland.

Usually, he would play games, help people repair their computers, drink tea when he was free, and bask in the sun. His days were very leisurely.

He and Wen Xiao had been good friends for more than ten years. Later, Wen Xiao had learned how to make tea in a thermos cup from him.

Three years ago, and this time as well, he had helped Shen Li and Wen Xiao a lot.

“I asked him to help me investigate the fake painting in Leland.”

Lu Huaiyu nodded and looked at the message. The corners of his thin lips raised.

“It’s quite rare to be able to find out this much.”

Saint had only appeared twice in Paradise, and both times, it had been because of her.

He was indeed very capable to be able to find out the relationship between Saint and Paradise.

“But… He seems to have some misunderstanding about me?” Lu Huaiyu smiled faintly.

Shen Li looked at him and said, “Isn’t it because Second Brother’s identity has been hidden too well?”

Very few people knew that Saint was the boss of Paradise, and even fewer people knew that Lu Huaiyu was Saint.

Li Yan had not returned to China in a long time, and he lived a semi-retired life here. If it was not for the fact that he wanted to help Shen Li and Wen Xiao, he would not even have gotten involved in the matters related to Paradise. So naturally, Lu Huaiyu would not have come to his mind.

She lowered her head and typed a short reply.

[ I already know. Also, there’s something I need to tell you, Uncle Li. Saint is my boyfriend. ]

There was no response from the other end for a long time. The phone only rang again when Shen Li was about to put her phone away.

[ So, to ensure your safety, Wen Xiao and I have been preventing you from coming to Leland for the past three years. Yet, in the end, the person you offended the most here was your own boyfriend?! ]

Shen Li did not know what to say.

In fact, this was not the only reason. That night, she had been very angry and had gone to race. Although she had ultimately won, she had also scared Wen Xiao.

From then on, he never allowed her to come to Leland again.

On one hand, she had offended too many people here. On the other hand, he was afraid that she would cause more trouble.

After Li Yan eventually found out about these things, it was one of the rare occasions that he had agreed with Wen Xiao.

This time, when Shen Li said that she was coming over, Wen Xiao had even called Li Yan and asked him to make further preparations.

But now, it seemed that his preparations had been in vain.

Shen Li also felt that this matter was a little awkward, but that trip to Leland had left a huge psychological shadow on Wen Xiao and the others.

At the end of the day, no one could blame her. It was just too much of a coincidence.

She struggled for a moment.

[ He wasn’t my boyfriend at that time. I only found out about this not long ago. ]

Li Yan was speechless and did not bother to reply to her.

Lu Huaiyu leaned back in his chair, his long legs crossed in a lazy posture. He could see the words on her screen from the corner of his eye.

No wonder she said no when he asked her if she had been to Leland before.

It turned out that the young girl also knew that she had caused trouble.

However…

“Am I that fierce?” He asked, raising his eyebrows.

Shen Li turned her head and said honestly, “Uncle Li said that I was blacklisted by Paradise.”

After all, Paradise was the largest underground casino in Leland. Although she lost to Saint in the last round that night, they had obviously seen through her counting of cards since the beginning.

No casino would welcome a card counter, especially after the ruckus she had caused at Paradise.

Lu Huaiyu pondered for a moment.

“So, all information about Gambler was wiped clean after that night? ”

Shen Li nodded obediently.

Li Yan had also helped her with the red shield at that time. On one hand, it had been to prevent the people from Leland from investigating her, while on the other hand, it was also to prevent her from causing trouble again.

Lu Huaiyu was silent for a few seconds before he finally laughed.

Paradise rarely tracked down their customers, but Gambler had been an exception.

He had thought about it some time in between then and now. If he had insisted on investigating at that time, there was a high chance that he would have found out about Gambler’s identity. However, after the initial failure, he understood what Gambler had meant. After some careful consideration, he had chosen to respect Gambler’s wishes.

It’s just that… if he had known it was her, he would have definitely made a different choice.

“Shen Tangtang, I’ve been going easy on you from the start. Don’t tell me you don’t know that.”

Shen Li blinked.

She had not known about it before, but after finding out his identity and thinking about the past, she realized that it seemed a little awkward.

For example, she had left Paradise safe and sound that night.

For example, he had never urged her to return the money in the past three years.

For example, she was able to step into Paradise again and successfully enter the gambling table.

At that time, all she had felt was that she had lost in a complete mess and had not cared about anything else.

However, looking back, Saint had indeed left her some leeway from the very beginning.

“Out of all the people on the blacklist, Gambler has been the only one who could enter Paradise again.”

Lu Huaiyu lowered his voice and stared into her eyes, his thin lips slightly raised.

“Although those words made you angry at the time… I really did think that Gambler was very interesting.”

Over the years, Paradise had only broken the rules for Gambler.

Lu Huaiyu had only made an exception for Shen Li.

Shen Li replied with an “Oh.” After a while, she said, “What a coincidence, I also think that Saint is very interesting.”

Lu Huaiyu laughed and ruffled her hair.

“Then I’ll get someone to check on the situation on Seventh Street, alright?”

Shen Li nodded.

Why not utilize someone powerful since he was at her disposal?

Twenty minutes later, the two of them arrived at Ronai’s private gallery.

It was an old building with a long history, full of Gothic style.

The beautiful pointed arches and the magnificent glass paintings exuded a retro artistic atmosphere.

To be able to use such a place as his own private gallery was enough to show the heritage of the Berkshire family.

Ronai was already waiting for them in the front hall.

When he saw Shen Li and Lu Huaiyu get out of the car, a smile spread across his face.

“You’ve finally arrived.”

There were about five or six other people with him, and all of them did not have an ordinary countenance about them.

Ronai smiled and explained, “These people are also members of the Bai City Fashion Association. You’ve met two of them before. The rest knew that you were in Leland, so they came here today.

As the newest and youngest member of the association, they looked upon Shen Li as if she was a child. They were especially tolerant and gentle towards her.

Shen Li and Lu Huaiyu greeted them, and the atmosphere quickly warmed up.

“You may visit from the first to the third floor for as long as you like,” Ronai said with a smile.
