The Little Brat’s Sweet And Sassy

Chapter 326 - Joy

Chapter 326: Joy

When Lu Huaiyu had said that he would be bringing a friend home, Old Master Lu had guessed that it had to be the one that he had not managed to pick up previously.

It was also the one that he admitted that he liked.

However, Old Master Lu had not expected the person to be Ning Li!

Wasn’t this the child that he mentioned earlier that was accompanying him?

He never expected that it would be… the same person!

Lu Huaiyu remained calm and collected.

“Grandpa, let’s go in first.”

Old Master Lu finally reacted, immediately giving a little cough.

“Yes, yes, this is Ah Li’s first time here. No need to be shy!”

As he spoke, he sent Lu Huaiyu a look that seemed to say, ‘Just you wait… I’m going to teach you a lesson!’

The whole group entered the house and sat down in the living room.

Zhang Chunlan poured some tea and looked at Ning Li with an extremely loving gaze.

“This must be Miss Ning, right?”

Lu Huaiyu said, “This is Auntie Lan.”

This was the person who had called Fang Qingyun earlier.

Ning Li nodded.

“Hello, Auntie Lan. You can just call me Ah Li.”

Zhang Chunlan replied with an echo of her name.

This was the first time that Lu Huaiyu had brought someone home, and he seemed to be very protective of her. She was indeed beautiful and well-behaved!

Old Master Lu sat across from the sofa. When he spoke, his tone was much gentler than usual.

“Ah Li, I heard that it’s time for your college entrance exam this year, right? Why did you come to the Capital this time?”

He asked this question because he did not know much about Ning Li’s reason for coming to the Capital.

Ning Li nodded and explained, “I participated in the winter camp training for a school competition.”

Old Master Lu’s eyes lit up when he heard this.

“Ah Li, you’re that amazing?”

He sighed.

“So much better than our Huaiyu.”

Ning Li said, “Second Brother is also very outstanding. When I went to the Capital First High school, his photo was still posted on the Wall of Outstanding Alumni Photos.”

Hearing this, Lu Huaiyu raised his eyebrows and looked at her.

Old Master Lu waved his hand in disdain.

“That’s so many years old. It’s not even worth mentioning!”

Ning Li, “…”

Old Master Lu asked several other questions.

He knew about Ning Li’s family background, so he wanted to avoid questions about that topic. He only asked her about the arrangements for coming to the Capital, what dishes she liked to eat, and whether she was happy here.

After chatting for a while, Lu Huaiyu asked, “There are some books in the study here that I think you would like. Would you like to go and have a look?”

Ning Li’s head was dizzy from Old Master Lu’s enthusiasm. She immediately nodded.

“Okay.”

Lu Huaiyu stood up.

“Follow me.”

The two went to the study.

Old Master Lu looked at the backs of the pair that was leaving with mixed feelings. He was partly happy but also conflicted.

He suddenly thought of something and lowered his voice to speak to Fang Qingyun.

“Qingyun! Tell me, did you already know about this a long time?!”

Fang Qingyun obviously knew what he was talking about, so he coughed guiltily and awkwardly.

“This… Old Master, you don’t know… Actually, I was only a few days earlier than you…”

“That child, Ning Li, is only seventeen! How old is he? How could he lie to a child like that!? His behavior is too shameless!”

Old Master Lu was heartbroken and resentful.

Fang Qingyun was silent as he thought, ‘Old Master Lu, he is still your biological grandson…’

Aloud, he weakly reminded him, “Actually… Actually, the Second Master is only four years older than Ah Li…”

“She’s still in her senior year of high school!

Old Master Lu was even angrier.

“How many years ago did he graduate from high school?!”

Fang Qingyun went silent again.

“It’s not Second Master’s fault that he graduated at sixteen… No, that’s not what I meant. Old Master Lu, please be more open-minded… You should know more or less how much the Second Master likes that girl, right? Besides, Second Master is your biological grandson. He has always done things carefully. Can’t you trust him in this matter?”

Old Master Lu’s expression softened a little.

Fang Qingyun struck while the iron was still hot.

“Moreover, I don’t think you realize that so many other people are interested in Ah Li as well! On the way here, that Young Master of the Gu family even wanted to invite Ah Li to celebrate the New Year together.”

Old Master Lu narrowed his eyes and thought for a while.

“Gu Tingfeng’s youngest son?”

“Yes! And there was another friend as well. From what I heard, they seem to be quite familiar with each other.”

Fang Qingyun concluded, “Old Master Lu, the competition that the Second Master is facing is very intense! If we don’t hurry up, our Second Master will lose his chance!”

Old Master Lu had not expected this situation. He thought about it carefully and felt that what Fang Qingyun had said made sense.

“That’s true… Ah Li is very endearing…”

The young girl had a good appearance and temperament, and her results were outstanding. How would it be possible if no one pursued her?

Old Master Lu instantly felt a sense of crisis.

“That won’t do! That’s my granddaughter-in-law!”

He had raised these two brothers for more than 20 years, and now he was finally seeing the shadow of his granddaughter-in-law. How could he bear to let go of her?

Previously, when Lu Huaiyu had gone to pick her up, he had not succeeded, had he?

Fortunately, he had not let him down this time.

Thinking of the young girl he had just seen, Old Master Lu felt happy again.

“However, Ah Li is indeed a good child. No wonder he likes her.”

Fang Qingyun saw that his mood had improved greatly and felt relieved.

“Yeah, she even got first place in the whole of Yunzhou City!”

Old Master Lu was happy to hear that.

“I told you she was very good!”

At this point, he could not help but let out a long sigh and said faintly, “It’s that kid. I don’t know what kind of terrible luck he’s got. It’s simply too bad.”

Ning Li followed Lu Huaiyu to the study room.

The size of the study room here was even larger than the one in Yunding Fenghua.

It was decorated with antiques, and all kinds of books filled an entire wall of the bookshelf.

Lu Huaiyu smiled faintly and said, “We don’t usually have many guests here, so grandfather is quite happy today. Please don’t mind him.”

Ning Li shook her head.

“No. I think… it’s quite good.”

In her memory, there was no perfect and lively Chinese New Year’s Eve.
