Chapter 487: Miss Ning Li

Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation

As soon as the voice rang out, everyone was shocked and immediately turned back to look.

The one who had spoken was actually Old Master Gu!

He did not know when he had come over, but Old Madam Gu was also there.

Gu Siyang stood beside Old Madam Gu as he looked at Zhong Haoqi as if he was a retard, with a hint of sympathy.

Tsk.

Why did this person have to look for Ning Li?

It also just had to be the horse that his grandfather had gifted to her!

Wasn’t he just making things difficult for himself?

Zhong Haoqi was also feeling confused. He had a feeling that Old Master Gu’s words were not friendly. The arrogance from before disappeared instantly, leaving only nervousness and uneasiness in his heart.

“Old Master Gu?”

Was he… speaking up for Ning Li?

Old Master Gu’s face darkened.

After the first round of the competition had ended, he had seen that Number 9 had won first place. He remembered that this was the horse that he had given to Ning Li yesterday, and could not help but admire her for her good taste.

In the past, Yinyin had always been able to pick the best one at a glance.

Whenever she had placed a bet, nine out of ten would always win.

Old Madam Gu had also been very happy. She had wanted to get someone to invite Ning Li over. On one hand, she wanted to congratulate her, and on the other hand, she wanted to talk to her more.

However, the people below had come back and reported that Miss Ning Li had met with some trouble.

Gu Siyang had volunteered himself, intending on helping to solve the problem himself. In the end, Old Master and Old Madam Gu had insisted on coming along as well.

Since he could not persuade them otherwise, he had brought them here directly.

Who knew that they would meet with such a situation?

Zhong Haoqi sensed that something was wrong.

Old Master Gu’s expression was really–

He quickly tried to explain.

“Old Master Gu, Old Madam Gu, please don’t misunderstand. I just wanted to ask her to sell Number 9 to me. I don’t have any other intentions.”

If the Gu family thought that he was deliberately causing trouble in their territory, that would be troublesome!

“All I said was that she could raise the price as she pleases! As long as–”

Old Master Gu interrupted him and said coldly, “She likes this horse very much. Why would she agree to sell it to you?”

Zhong Haoqi was stunned.

These words… Why did these words sound so wrong?

Everyone who was around was also stunned.

Since Ning Li had bought this horse in advance, she must have liked it very much.

But Old Master Gu’s tone–

Old Madam Gu looked at Ning Li.

She was wearing a white t-shirt, jeans, and white shoes today. Her long, wavy hair was tied into a ponytail at the back of her head, revealing her slender and fair neck.

She was slender and tall, extremely clean and beautiful.

She smiled and called out, “Miss Ning Li.”

Although this address was very polite, the tone of her voice was gentle and warm.

Everyone was stunned.

Old Madam Gu… actually knew Ning Li?

Ning Li’s gaze turned slightly. When she saw Old Madam Gu, the coldness between her brows faded and the corners of her lips curled up into a faint smile.

“Old Madam Gu, what brings the two of you here?”

Old Madam Gu smiled and said, “Your horse won first place. Naturally, we had to congratulate you.”

When the soft and gentle voice fell, the entire corridor was deathly silent.

The scene seemed to freeze.

Old Madam Gu’s simple statements contained a lot of information!

Both she and Old Master Gu had to come over to congratulate Ning Li just because her horse had won first place?

The Gu family was the most prominent family in Hong Kong City, and it could be said that they were the most powerful in this city.

Based on that, wasn’t it clear about the status that Old Master Gu and Old Madam Gu had?

And now, they had specially come over just to say “Congratulations” to Ning Li?

Old Madam Gu took another look at the arena.

Photos were being taken of Qingfeng on the podium at the moment.

She looked at Ning Li again and asked as if she was coaxing a child, “Are you happy?”

Ning Li’s eyes curved in a smile.

“Yes.”

Old Madam Gu’s smile deepened.

“That’s good. When Brother Ci gave Qingfeng to you yesterday, I was worried that Qingfeng would be too hot-tempered and would refuse to compete properly. But fortunately, he listens to you.”

The dead silence continued, long and torturous.

A faint gasp came from the crowd.

Old Madam Gu’s words…

That horse had personally been given to Ning Li by Old Master Gu?!

When Zhong Haoqi realized this, his lips turned pale instantly.

After a long while, he managed to find his voice.

“Old Madam Gu… Did you… Did you just say that horse Number 9 was… was…”

His tone was trembling.

Gu Siyang’s ears perked up impatiently.

“Yesterday, Ning Li already gave it a name. It’s called Qingfeng. It’s Qingfeng.”

As he spoke, he smiled and moved closer to Old Madam Gu.

“Grandma, what do you think of this name?”

Old Madam Gu smiled and said, “Miss Ning Li personally gave it a name. Of course it’s very good.”

As she spoke, she turned her head to look at Old Master Gu.

“Brother Ci, what do you think?”

Old Master Gu’s expression softened.

“It’s very good.”

He looked at Ning Li with admiration.

“Qingfeng has a strong temper, but he’s very compatible with Miss Ning Li. Indeed, no one is more suitable to be Qingfeng’s master.”

This sentence had a hidden meaning, and everyone present could hear it.

After a long time, no one answered.

Zhong Haoqi felt that his brain was muddled, and his whole body seemed to be trapped.

He really could not understand what was going on.

Hadn’t they said that Ning Li was a guest that had been invited by Gu Tinglan?

How had she gotten involved with Old Master Gu and Old Madam Gu?

It was normal for most people to want to curry favor with the Gu family. However, that did not mean that they would even be able to meet these two people.

On the contrary, not only had Ning Li been personally gifted a horse by Old Master Gu which had eventually won the competition. Old Master Gu and his wife had even come over to congratulate her!

Yan Zhen’s expression changed several times.

Initially, she had not thought much about Ning Li, so she had spoken quite rudely about her.

Who knew–

Who was this Ning Li, how could she have such an important background?

Old Master Gu looked at Zhong Haoqi.

“It seems that you are insisting that you must have Qingfeng. It’s a pity that Qingfeng already has a master. So–”

Zhong Haoqi held his breath.

The next moment, Old Master Gu’s cold and indifferent voice was heard.

“There shouldn’t be any horses that you can buy in this horse race.”

Zhong Haoqi’s heart sank!

Old Master Gu’s words had sealed his path!

This meant that even if he fancied other horses, he would not be able to participate in the auction!

The Gu family held an absolutely dominant position in the Hong Kong City Jockey Club.

This kind of professional-level horse racing, regardless of whether it was a competition or a transaction, had to be approved by the Jockey Club.

In other words, it had to go through the hands of the Gu family.

Now that Old Master Gu had said this, not only would he be unable to bid for horses at horse races in the future, he would not even be able to purchase them through the proper channels at normal times!

The surroundings were so quiet that one could hear a pin drop.

No one had expected that Old Master Gu’s attitude would be so unyielding.

And all this had happened only because Zhong Haoqi had tried to force Ning Li to sell Number 9 to him.

In fact, he had not even done anything except for saying a few rude words.

The Gu family…

Why were they so protective of this girl Ning Li?

Old Madam Gu gently beckoned to Ning Li.

“It’s a bit noisy here. Why don’t you go over there and watch with us, okay?”
