Chapter 475 - Was Selected
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Gu Siyang was stunned.
“Are you really not going to take a look?”
Ning Li’s lips curved slightly.
“I still trust Doctor Gu to settle things. It’s not too late to discuss this after I’ve really made my choice.”
Gu Siyang listened and felt that what she had said made sense.
Anyway, it was not a big deal.
“Alright, then I’ll listen to you.”
As he spoke, he raised his chin.
“Then, shall I take you there to have a look?”
Ning Li nodded.
Zhong Haoqi had wanted to say more, but Gu Siyang did not give him a chance and left with his guests.
Only a few of them were left in the same place, and the atmosphere was now cold and awkward.
It was not until they could not see Gu Siyang and the others that they started to discuss in low voices.
“Who is this Ning Li?”
“Since Gu Tinglan invited her personally, she must be extraordinary. It seems that Gu Siyang treats her very well…”
“There is no such person in Hong Kong City. Yu Pingchuan, who was beside her, is a famous oil painter in the country. His status is not low, but that Ning Li doesn’t look like a junior in his family.”
“Anyway, no matter what her background is, she is not someone to be trifled with. She has only come to the horse farm twice, and with a single sentence, she could make Gu Siyang fire the horse trainer who has worked here for many years. Impressive.”
They had been bullied by Gu Siyang, so how could they not have any resentment in their hearts?
Even though Ning Li’s identity was unknown, they still made some guesses.
Moreover, the Gu family was the hardest to please. They had tried their best, but they had not even been able to get a good look from her. But, what about Ning Li?
Gu Siyang had even wanted to please her!
Such a huge gap made people feel unbalanced. Naturally, the words that came out of their mouths were not as pleasant to listen to.
Zhong Haoqi interrupted them impatiently,
“Isn’t it embarrassing enough? Didn’t you hear that she was personally invited by Gu Tinglan?”
These words immediately reminded those few of them who were there, and they all shut up in embarrassment.
It was fine to offend Gu Siyang, but if Gu Tinglan was also provoked, then it would really be a difficult matter to settle.
Although this person did not interfere much in the management of the Gu family’s property, his thoughts and methods were top-notch. Moreover, because he was an elder son, he was especially doted on by Old Master Gu and Old Madam Gu.
Even though he spent most of his time traveling around the world as a psychiatrist and rarely returned to Hong Kong City, whenever he returned, his status was still unshakable.
If nothing else, just the fact that he had been given the responsibility of this year’s horse race alone was enough to explain everything.
Zhong Haoqi looked in the direction where Ning Li had left.
For Gu Tinglan to think so highly of her, then… Her background should be pretty good, right?
Perhaps he could ask around and find out which family’s daughter she was.
Yan Zhen glanced at him and immediately guessed his thoughts. She could not help but sneer.
She could not be bothered to say anything more. After all, she was already full of anger today.
She said coldly and turned around to leave.
Gu Siyang led Ning Li and Yu Pingchuan to another area.
As they walked, he looked at Ning Li and observed her expression. He scratched his head in embarrassment.
“Ning Li, I’m really sorry for what happened in the past two days.”
Ning Li shook her head.
In the end, there was really no need to waste energy and emotions on something like this.
Gu Siyang heard her calm tone and saw that she did not seem to have taken it to heart. Only then did he heave a sigh of relief.
It had not been easy for him to sign her on. It was not worth it to make her unhappy because of this matter.
Yu Pingchuan snorted coldly.
Gu Siyang trembled.
He did not know Yu Pingchuan before, but now that he knew that Ning Li had a close relationship with him, the situation was naturally different.
Ning Li accompanying Yu Pingchuan to specially come to Hong Kong City to watch the horse races was already a very clear indication of the problem!
How could he offend him?!
Ning Li smiled and tried to coax him.
“Teacher Yu, don’t be angry. How is such a thing worthy of your concern?”
Yu Pingchuan was just angry.
“I brought you here this time to let you have fun. Now–“
Who knew that there would be such a scene?
Ning Li felt a warmth in her heart.
“I’m already very happy to be able to come with you.”
Yu Pingchuan could not do anything after she said that.
He paused for a moment and said, “Just go and pick something. I’ll buy it for you, no matter how expensive it is!”
Ning Li’s eyes curved as she smiled.
“I was going to take you to see the car…”
Gu Siyang muttered to himself and looked at Ning Li again.
“I didn’t expect you to like horses. Hey, Ning Li, what’s your horsemanship like?”
He had never heard Ning Li mention this before, nor had he seen her ride a horse. But now, it seemed that Ning Li knew quite a lot about this aspect?
Ning Li said, “It’s not bad.”
As she spoke, she stopped in her tracks.
Gu Siyang followed her line of sight and saw that it was a pure-blooded cyan horse.
“Do you fancy this one?”
Ning Li nodded.
Compared to Number 17, whom she had thought was pretty good yesterday, the current Number 9 caught her eye more.
“I don’t think I saw it in the previous information.”
Gu Siyang asked the horse trainer who was following him.
“What’s the price?”
The horse trainer said, “Young master, Miss Ning, this horse has a pure bloodline. The price is five million. The reason it hasn’t been selected for the profile is that this horse is very strong-tempered and hasn’t been fully tamed yet. Therefore, it is not considered as an option to be the winner of the horse race.”
Ning Li understood.
The price of this horse should have been higher than this number. It was only because it was not a popular choice for the championship that few people were interested in it. That was why such a low price had been quoted for it.
She looked at the horse trainer.
“I’d like to try riding it. Is that okay?”
The horse trainer and Gu Siyang were both stunned.
“This… I’m afraid it’s a bit dangerous. Miss Ning, you’d better….”
