Ning Li felt that his words sounded even stranger…
However, when faced with his scrutinizing gaze, she could only try her best to explain herself.
“No, it’s just… I originally planned to accompany Teacher Yu for the New Year, but now, now…”
Lu Huaiyu handed over her phone and gently tapped her forehead with his fingers. He chuckled.
“If one didn’t know any better, one might think that I’ve kidnapped you.”
Ning Li, “…”
Lu Huaiyu took her backpack and stroked her head.
The Black Panamera had parked downstairs. Fang Qingyun was waiting in the car.
He kept an eye on the entrance of the building as he received the seventh call from Old Master Lu.
“Hey, Old Master, he hasn’t come out yet. Please wait a little longer.”
“Soon, soon. Second Master said that he’ll be down soon!”
“Don’t worry, I’ve been keeping an eye on–”
“…with what you said, can I still drive the car upstairs?”
As they were speaking, two figures came out of the main door.
The tall and straight figure on the left was his Second Master.
The person on the right…
The tall, slender figure was the girl that he had seen in the courtyard of Xijing University the other day.
Fang Qingyun immediately lowered his voice and said, “They’re here! They’re here! I’m hanging up now! I’ll be home in half an hour!”
He quickly hung up the phone and got out of the car. He greeted them warmly.
“Second Master, Miss Ning!”
Ning Li looked in the direction of the voice and saw a middle-aged man in his forties walking towards them. He greeted them with a smile on his face.
Lu Huaiyu lead her over.
“Ah Li, this is Uncle Fang.”
Ning Li greeted, “Hello, Uncle Fang.”
This was the first time Fang Qingyun had seen Ning Li up close. Seeing the young lady’s clean, elegant, and obedient appearance, a thought suddenly flashed through his mind.
It was no wonder that the Second Master was so obsessed with her…
This child was too lovable!
Fang Qingyun’s smile was boundless.
“Good, good! Quickly, get in the car! Everyone at home is waiting!”
His enthusiasm went beyond Ning Li’s imagination.
She rarely received this kind of treatment from other people, so for a moment, she was a little nervous.
Lu Huaiyu smiled and helped her open the car door.
“Uncle Fang has always been like this. You’ll get used to it. Let’s go.”
Ning Li did not bother to think about what he meant by “You’ll get used to it”, and got into the car obediently.
Lu Huaiyu sat in the back seat with her.
Fang Qingyun started the car and drove towards the Lu family mansion.
He surreptitiously glanced at the rearview mirror and could not help but smile.
“Miss Ning, I heard that you came here to participate in the winter camp?”
Of course, he knew about these things, but listening to her talk about it in person was obviously different!
Ning Li nodded.
“Uncle Fang, you can just call me Ah Li.”
Fang Qingyun was overjoyed.
“Oh, that’s good. Good!”
As he spoke, he glanced at his Second Master and chuckled.
“Ah Li, you’re the first person that the Second Master has personally brought home for the New Year!”
In the past few years, there had been countless women chasing after the Second Master. Although the Second Master had always kept a respectful distance from them, what if this young girl did not know that?
He still had to make it clear. Yes, make it clear!
He had to help raise her estimation of his Second Master to make a good impression!
“How has your trip here been so far?
“The Second Master can show you around. There are so many fun places here!”
“Your winter camp was at Capital First High School. What a coincidence! The Second Master used to be in Capital First High School, too!”
The Lu family.
Old Master Lu stood in front of the mirror and looked around.
“Chunlan, what do you think of this outfit? Isn’t it a little too dark and too serious?”
A middle-aged woman stood at the back, wearing an apron and holding a handful of coriander.
She was one of the aunts in the Lu family. She was married to Fang Qingyun, and they were both elders of the Lu family.
Zhang Chunlan looked at it seriously and nodded.
“It does appear to be a little dark and serious.”
Old Master Lu immediately turned around and returned to his room.
“I’ll change into another set then.”
Zhang Chunlan called out.
“Old Master, why don’t you change into the first set that you tried on?”
Ever since he had received a call from Lu Huaiyu in the morning, saying that he was going to bring someone home for the New Year, Old Master Lu had rummaged through his wardrobe and changed into several sets of clothes within the past few hours.
Till now, none of them seemed satisfactory.
Zhang Chunlan had been kept busy cooking as she continued to advise the old man. Thus, she was extremely tired.
“Aiya! My fish soup!”
Zhang Chunlan suddenly remembered something. She slapped her thigh and hurried back to the kitchen.
Old Master Lu thought about it a moment before changing back into his first outfit, which was a Tang suit.
He surveyed himself in the mirror and nodded reluctantly.
“Aiya, there’s not much time left. This will have to do!”
As he spoke, he looked out of the window.
“Why aren’t Qingyun and the others back yet?”
He walked to the kitchen.
“Chunlan, why don’t you give Qingyun a call? Ask him where he is now!”
Zhang Chunlan lifted the lid of the pot to check on the fish soup. After making sure that it was well cooked, she said, “Old Master, why don’t you just give him a call yourself? Or you can call the Second Master.”
Old Master Lu straightened his collar and refused.
“That won’t do. Wouldn’t that make me seem too anxious?”
Zhang Chunlan: “…”
Were his previous seven calls not obvious already?
Old Master Lu pursed his lips.
“Give him a call.”
Fang Qingyun received a call from Zhang Chunlan.
How could he not guess that this was at the prompting of Old Master Lu? Looking at Ning Li who was sitting behind him, he silently sighed.
Old Master Lu was so impatient!
Could he not learn from him?
Fang Qingyun picked up the call to preempt the questions he knew were coming.
“I’m on my way. I’ll be there in ten minutes.
“Right, right. The traffic is a little congested. After all, it’s New Year’s Eve!
“Don’t worry about me. I’ll be there in a moment! Okay, okay, I’ll hang up now!”
Fang Qingyun hung up the phone smoothly.
Ning Li was looking straight ahead.
Fang Qingyun chuckled and explained superfluously,
“That was my wife!”
Ning Li was silent. She had overheard the conversation…
“You and Auntie seem to have a good relationship.”
Fang Qingyun glanced over at Lu Huaiyu.
“That’s not just considered good. Having a wife is different. Hahahaha! Ah Li, I don’t think you know that the first rule for us Capital men, is to love our wives! In the future, if you–”
Lu Huaiyu looked up and looked at him with a half-smile.
Fang Qingyun quickly stopped talking.
He had been so excited that he had almost forgotten that the little girl was still in her senior year of high school…
Fang Qingyun coughed hard.
Ning Li’s phone rang.
It was Gu Siyang.
She was hesitant to pick it up immediately.
Lu Huaiyu turned his head to look.
Ning Li silently sighed and answered the call.
Young Master Gu’s enthusiastic and excited voice came through the phone.
“Ning Li! It’s New Year’s Eve today! Come to my house for the New Year!”
He was so excited that even Lu Huaiyu, who was beside Ning Li, could also hear his loud voice.
He raised his eyebrows.
Ning Li, “…”
She had not realized that Gu Siyang would come looking for her!
She politely declined.
“Thank you, but I’ve already promised to go to Second Brother’s house today.”
Fang Qingyun’s ears immediately perked up.
Was someone else inviting Ning Li to their house for the New Year?
