He did not have Ning’s contact information, so of course, he could only go through George when he needed to find someone.
The person who answered the phone was Liang Yue.
George and Ning Li were still discussing the final content in the conference room and had not come out yet.
It was a rare occasion for Ning Li to come over, so George had specially handed his phone over to Liang Yue so that he would not be disturbed.
Seeing that Edmund was calling, Liang Yue hesitated for a moment, but still knocked on the conference room door.
George turned his head to look at him.
“What’s the matter? Is it urgent?”
Liang Yue raised his phone and looked at Ning Li.
“Miss Xu wants to meet with you. Look…”
“She hasn’t left yet?” George smiled and winked at Ning Li. He spoke teasingly, “It seems that she wants to see you more than me.”
Liang Yue said, “Miss Xu said that whenever you have time, she would like to meet you. She’s available at any time.
This sincerity could be said to be sufficient.
However, Ning Li knew very well that it was not her that Xu Yini wanted to meet, but Ning.
She shook her head.
Liang Yue immediately understood and quickly left.
George was not surprised by Ning Li’s choice.
Xu Yini was not worth her concern.
George said playfully, “It looks like she’s really anxious this time. In the past, the eldest miss of the Xu family would never have lowered herself this much, right?”
Ning Li felt that something was not right.
“Didn’t you know? Her situation recently hasn’t been too good.
George spread his hands.
“HG has canceled all of its cooperation with Huanxing Entertainment, especially Xu Yini. Because of this, she has already lost quite a few endorsements. I guess she’s taking advantage of this opportunity to work with G&S and you?”
Ning Li really had not known this.
She had been quite busy recently, and there was no reason for anyone to mention Xu Yini to her.
Now that she had heard George mention this, she realized that something was indeed wrong.
It did not seem like Xu Yini’s usual style to voluntarily humble herself and seek a partnership.
“To be precise, it’s the entire Lu Corporation.”
George blinked and suddenly moved closer.
“There have been rumors in the Capital recently. A few days ago, she offended the Second Master of the Lu Corporation. This… Did you not know this either?”
Ning Li was slightly stunned.
When George saw her reaction, his deep and beautiful sky-blue eyes curved up.
“It’s said that it’s because of the person Second Master Lu is pining for.
It was already afternoon by the time Ning Li came out of the G&S headquarters.
Compared to the hustle and bustle of the morning, it was much quieter now.
She took a taxi.
“Young lady, where would you like to go?”
The driver asked casually.
Ning Li paused.
The driver replied and started the car.
After driving for a while, Ning Li’s phone vibrated.
She took it out and took a look.
[ Sister Li, Ye Ci has contacted that number. ]
Ning Li stared at the sentence for a while before raising her eyebrows slightly.
Could it be that she finally could not stand it anymore?
[ Got it. ]
She raised her head and said, “Mister, I’m not going to Rongyue Mansion anymore. I’ll be going to Shuiyuan Shijia instead.”
In the master bedroom, the curtains were tightly drawn so the room was pitch black.
The person on the bed moved.
Lu Huaiyu slowly opened his eyes and gradually woke up in the darkness.
He sat up and the blanket slowly slid down.
He took the phone from the bedside table and glanced at it.
This time, he had only slept for two hours, which was shorter than before.
More importantly, he did not have any more dreams.
He lifted the quilt and got up, pulling the curtains open.
It was already evening, and the setting sun had warmed the tall buildings.
Perhaps after a while, he would be able to completely adjust his schedule.
He called Ning Li.
Ning Li seemed to be busy, and only picked up when he made the second call.
“Li, do you want to have dinner together tonight?”
Ning Li’s voice came from the receiver.
“Second Brother, I’m afraid it’s not convenient today. I’m packing my luggage.”
Lu Huaiyu paused, his phoenix-like eyes slightly narrowed.
“You’re going back to Yunzhou?”
“Yes. The plane ticket is at nine o’clock tomorrow morning.”
“Actually, it’s not that urgent. It’s mainly because some things need to be dealt with back home. In addition, I’ve already stayed in the Capital for quite a long time this time.”
In the beginning, Ning Li had not planned to stay in the Capital for so long. She had even rushed through a few things together.
However, now that the matters here were basically settled, it was time for her to go back.
Moreover, over at Yunzhou–
Lu Huaiyu thought for a moment.
“I’ll send you off tomorrow.”
Ning Li wanted to refuse, but when she thought about how she was indeed in a hurry this time, she agreed.
Ning Li held her phone, wanting to ask him about Xu Yini.
No, she actually wanted to ask about the “History of Time” book and the hand drawing in it.
George had not been at LaTuie Winery that day, so he did not tell her much about the specific situation. All he said was that Xu Yini had been drunk that day and offended Lu Huaiyu, which ended up leading to so much trouble.
He had not mentioned the book or the hand drawing.
On one hand, there were so many rumors circulating about this issue that he felt that it was hard to judge whether it was true or not.
On the other hand… It was because he had interacted with Lu Huaiyu during his trip to Yunzhou.
Other people did not know about Ning Li’s existence, but men understood men the best. He knew very well what Lu Huaiyu’s thoughts about Ning Li were.
This matter was quite interesting, so he had only mentioned it at the end.
Lu Huaiyu seemed to notice something.
Ning Li thought about it a moment longer, before gently shaking her head.
“Nothing. Second Brother, when will you return to Yunzhou?”
She had seen that hand drawing twice.
If he wanted to talk about it, he would naturally do so.
Moreover, it did not seem very appropriate for her to ask about this matter now.
She suppressed the thoughts in her mind.
Lu Huaiyu looked out of the window.
“When will you be sitting for the final exams?”
Ning Li thought for a moment.
“There are still eleven days more.”
Lu Huaiyu said, “I’ll come back once you have finished the exams.”
