Chapter 1130 - 1130 Fight
Shen Li facepalmed herself.
Back when she had attended Ronai’s art exhibition, her master had been jealous for a long time. It was worse now that he had heard the news that she had imitated Ronai’s style and produced such a painting.
Moreover, that painting had been kept in Ronai’s private gallery.
Of course, she really had not expected Ronai to actually call Mei Yanqing directly, as if he did not know what would happen.
Now, just by thinking about it, she could imagine what was going on with her master.
She thought for a moment and looked at the time. It was half past five. After some deliberation, she said, “Senior Brother, help me ask Master what he wants to eat tonight.”
Yu Pingchuan said worriedly, “I don’t think he’ll even eat dinner tonight. It’s pointless to ask.”
“I’ll go over and prepare it.”
Yu Pingchuan was stunned.
“It’s true. I haven’t seen Master in a while. I miss him.” Shen Li said.
Yu Pingchuan thought about it over and over again, feeling very conflicted.
“But Master is very angry this time,”
Who would’ve thought that she had actually studied Ronai’s paintings before?
Not only had she produced a work in his style, but she had even left it with Ronai?
Earlier, Ronai had sent him the photo directly, and he had taken a few glances at it. It was indeed a good drawing.
Anyone who saw it would be able to see that the style was somewhat similar to Ronai’s work.
How could her master not mind?
With the current situation, even if she personally came, he was afraid it would still be difficult to handle…
“Pingchuan, who are you calling?”
Just as Yu Pingchuan was hesitating, Mei Yanqing pushed open the door of the study and looked over. He frowned as he asked the question.
Yu Pingchuan’s heart skipped a beat as he denied, “No, no…”
Meeting Mei Yanqing’s scrutinizing gaze, Yu Pingchuan’s voice gradually became softer.
“It’s Ah Li.” He said carefully, “She asked me to ask you what you’d like to eat for dinner. She… She said she would come here to prepare…
Mei Yanqing’s brows furrowed even more.
“What does she want to do?”
Was this… a rejection?
Just as Yu Pingchuan was about to speak, Mei Yanqing continued.
“She just came back from a competition overseas. Has she even had a good night’s sleep before rushing over to cook?”
Yu Pingchuan did not know what to say.
Things did not seem to be developing as expected?
He said, “Actually… Ah Li said she misses you, but if you don’t want her to come today, I told her–”
Mei Yanqing’s expression relaxed for a moment before he snorted coldly.
“Then let her come! Do you think we can stop her?”
Yu Pingchuan heaved a sigh of relief and said to Shen Li, “Ah Li, you can come over later. Everything you need is available here.
Shen Li had actually heard most of their conversation so she was slightly relieved.
“Alright,” he said.
After Yu Pingchuan ended the call, he looked up to see Mei Yanqing pouring himself a cup of wolfberry chrysanthemum tea.
He walked over, feeling a little more relieved.
This tea was said to remove heat, so it seems that this matter could be said to be put to rest…
“That shameless Ronai, how dare he take my disciple’s painting and not let it go? I could just spit on him!”
Mei Yan took a sip of tea before starting to curse again.
Yu Pingchuan stayed silent.
Oh, so he was only using it to soothe his throat.
Half an hour later, Shen Li arrived at Jinse Bay.
Yu Pingchuan was waiting for her at the door.
“Where’s Master?” Shen Li looked into the room.
Yu Pingchuan paused and pointed, “… He started cursing again…”
Shen Li was nonplussed.
As she walked in, she soon heard angry curses.
… Mei Yanqing was fighting with Ronai again.
“Didn’t she just copy your style and draw a painting? What’s the big deal?
“Do you know how long she’s been studying under me?!
“Speaking of which, I have to thank you for buying my apprentice’s painting. Otherwise, I wouldn’t even know where she earned the money she used to buy me fruits!”
Shen Li stopped in her tracks.
Was it too late to leave now?
However, it really was too late, because Mei Yanqing had already spotted her.
He raised his voice again.
“Ah Li? Did you come here to have dinner with me?”
“Master…” Shen Li replied.
Mei Yanqing said into the phone, “Ah Li is calling me. I don’t have that much time to waste with you.”
After that, he ended the call.
Shen Li stayed silent.
Mei Yanqing waved at her and looked at her. Then, he frowned.
“Why did you lose weight again?”
“Did I?” Shen Li touched her face.
Mei Yanqing lifted his chin.
“What would you like to eat? There’s quite a lot of stuff in the fridge, you can go and take a look.”
Shen Li blinked.
“Master, you’re not angry?”
Mei Yan placed his hands behind his back and snorted.
“Why not? You’ve been studying painting with me for so many years, yet I didn’t know that you could draw something like that. By the way, how much did he pay to buy your painting?”
Shen Li was stunned. She felt that the change of topic was a little sudden, but she still gave an honest number.
Mei Yan scoffed coldly.
“With his net worth, isn’t it too shabby to give you this little money?”
Shen Li was silent.
Something did not seem right with the point he was making, right?
She pursed her lips and said, “Master, actually it was also a coincidence that I drew that painting at that time. Basically, after that, I did not paint in that style any longer.”
Mei Yanqing waved his hand dismissively.
“It’s not a big deal.”
Shen Li and Yu Pingchuan looked at each other.
His emotional state did not match his usual temperament.
Just as she was thinking about it, she heard Mei Yanqing say, “It’s your freedom to draw whatever you want. Do you think that your master is trying to control what you draw and what you don’t draw? ”
Shen Li shook her head.
“No, it’s just that I didn’t have the time to tell you about it before, and I was afraid you’d be angry, so–”
“I’ve seen that painting. It’s indeed very good, and it has some of Ronai’s style of painting.”
Mei Yanqing suddenly sneered.
“But no matter how good he is, he can only be envious!”
