Chapter 316 - Be Obedient
Gu Siyang spent a long time trying to ask for more information, but Yang Tao did not reveal too much. All he said was that he had a friend who was familiar with the people from Farley and had helped them.
There were not many people who had this kind of connection and ability, so their status was definitely not ordinary.
Since Yang Tao did not reveal anything further, Gu Siyang tactfully did not ask any more questions and decided to bask in his happiness instead.
That was Farley!
Previously, when he had personally gone to meet with them, he almost moved out of the Gu family. The other party had not even nodded his head.
He was truly a difficult bone to chew.
Naturally, with someone helping him this time, he was happy!
Yang Tao nonchalantly asked, “Oh yes, I heard that you went to LY with a girl today?”
“That’s right! That’s Ning Li. I mentioned her to you before. Have you forgotten?”
“I haven’t forgotten. It looks like you were not wrong about her.”
Gu Siyang’s identity was well-hidden. He usually ran in various races. Firstly, because he liked to, and secondly, so he could spot talents that he could sign to a contract.
Yang Tao’s responsibilities were different from his. He rarely interacted directly with the racing drivers, so he did not know much about these things.
The moment Ning Li was mentioned, Gu Siyang became excited.
“You really should see her for yourself! She’s definitely the most talented person I’ve ever seen in racing! There’s no one else like her!”
He recalled the scene in the afternoon, feeling extremely excited.
“Let me tell you, no matter how much it costs, I will sign this person up!”
Yang Tao seemed to be a little interested.
“Since you said so… it sounds quite interesting. I noticed that you took a photo this afternoon?”
“Yes! Not only did I take a photo, but I also took a video!”
He had not posted the video because it had involved a lot of confidential content. However, Yang Tao was one of the bosses, so it was not a problem for him to see it.
“Why don’t you take a look?”
“Sure, by the way, could you also send the video of her competing at Xiaosong Hill?”
He had not seen it before.
Seeing that he was interested in these things, Gu Siyang sent the photos and videos to him without hesitation.
The sky was getting dark. Lu Huaiyu stood in front of the French window. Outside the window, the lights were shining brightly.
He was on the phone as he stood with one hand in his pocket, while the other hand was holding his cell phone.
“Lu Huaiyu, I’ve sent the photos and videos to you. Isn’t that enough?”
Yang Tao’s voice was smiling with a hint of mockery.
Lu Huaiyu replied in a languid and lazy tone.
“Why are you thanking me? I should be the one thanking you for agreeing to this.”
Yang Tao recalled the phone call he had received from Lu Huaiyu that afternoon and could not help but click his tongue.
If only he had known that this matter would be so simple to settle, he would have gotten Gu Siyang to bring his guest over earlier.
That kid himself did not know that the photos and videos that he had casually taken, could bring so much benefit to LY.
Yang Tao thought of the news that had been spreading wildly through the social circles of the Capital these past two days and couldn’t help but laugh.
“Second Master Lu spent so much money just for a meal for a young girl. If this matter were to spread, I don’t know how many people’s jaws would drop.”
Of course, he had also heard about the LeTuie Winery and the hand-drawn picture of a young man’s back that was kept between the pages of Lu Huaiyu’s book.
After the initial shock, Yang Tao had actually accepted it pretty quickly.
There were people of all sexual orientations in this circle. It was normal, and everyone was used to it.
The only reason this matter was particularly explosive was just that this person was Lu Huaiyu.
However, in the blink of an eye, Lu Huaiyu had done this kind of thing.
Yang Tao had known Lu Huaiyu for many years, yet this was the first time he had seen him like this.
When faced with the contract that Farley had taken the initiative to send over, the rumors from before suddenly seemed so pale.
Lu Huaiyu was behaving this way. Wasn’t it already clear who he liked?
“However, Lu Huaiyu, it’s really troublesome for you to put in so much effort.”
Yang Tao couldn’t figure this matter out.
This was Lu Huaiyu, a person who was usually so cold and aloof, unapproachable, and could attract the pursuit of countless socialites.
However, he was so careful in protecting and supporting this person.
Who was it that he wanted to pursue? Who did he want to make fall in love with him? Wasn’t it easy to see?
He was using such roundabout ways. What if the young girl did not know anything?
Lu Huaiyu paused, without saying anything.
Yang Tao said, “Let me remind you. With this young girl, if you don’t catch up to her as soon as possible, there will be plenty of people who want to pursue her as well! If by that time, she is snatched by another and gets away, it will be too late for you to regret it!”
Lu Huaiyu and his thin lips curved slightly.
“I won’t let that happen.”
Ning Li returned to Shuiyuan Shijia and ordered takeout for herself.
She took a shower, changed into her nightclothes, and sat on the sofa to play with her phone.
Ever since she had left in the afternoon, she had not contacted Lu Huaiyu or called him.
He had not sent any messages or called her either.
Ning Li pursed her lips. The feeling of suffocation and pain in her chest came back.
She opened Lu Huaiyu’s dialog box, but she did not move. She merely observed.
Suddenly, Gu Siyang’s words from earlier in the day echoed in her ears.
Her heart skipped a beat– She seemed to be really angry at Lu Huaiyu.
As soon as this thought surfaced in her heart, an indescribable panic and helplessness welled up.
She was angry at Lu Huaiyu.
He was obviously so good to her.
He had lent her the guest bedroom at Yunding Fenghua, he had attended a parent-teacher conference for her, he had purposely driven to come to pick her up…
If it were anyone else who had done these things, she would have been happy and grateful.
She owed Lu Huaiyu so much, yet now she was angry with him.
It was because…
It was because…
Something was surging in the deepest part of her heart, almost bursting out of her chest and overwhelming her.
She sat quietly, without moving at all.
The floor lamp outlined her slim and slender figure.
Suddenly, her phone lit up.
It was a message from Lu Huaiyu.
[ Li, are you asleep? ]
Ning Li picked up her phone.
[ Almost. ]
Seeing her reply, Lu Huaiyu thought for a moment before deleting the sentence in the dialog box.
[ Then, rest early. Good night. ]
[ Good night, Second Brother. ]
Ning Li put down her phone.
After a long time, she murmured softly.
“Good night. Lu Huaiyu.”
