Chapter 495 - I Really Don’t Have Any Money
Even after paying off a portion of the debt, of course, everything was still okay.
Although there was still quite a bit left, it had still benefited from being replenished.
Thinking about it this way, this trip to Hong Kong City was quite worth it.
Lu Huaiyu stroked her hair.
“Then, come with me to the auction tomorrow afternoon?”
Ning Li paused.
“I don’t have an invitation card.”
Lu Huaiyu raised his eyebrows.
“Am I not your invitation?”
The threshold for this auction at Carlsberg was indeed very high.
However, Lu Huaiyu was different.
With his family background, it would be very easy for him to bring someone along.
Ning Li was silent for a moment, but she still shook her head and said seriously, “I don’t have any money.”
Lu Huaiyu raised his eyebrows.
“Didn’t you say that you were okay to play here?”
Ning Li handed him her phone and showed him her betting records on the horse races over the past few days.
Looking at the 100,000 yuan that had been tossed back and forth, Lu Huaiyu also fell silent for once.
Ning Li said, “I really don’t have any money.”
Lu Huaiyu held his breath slightly.
He had not expected that one day, he would actually hear such a sentence from his girlfriend.
He used a bit of force to pull her back and raised his eyebrows slightly.
Ning Li knew what he was going to say and shook her head.
In her opinion, Lu Huaiyu’s money was his, and her money was hers.
She had also seen the catalog of the auction. The things she could afford were not worth buying, while she could not afford the things that were worth buying.
Lu Huaiyu narrowed his eyes slightly.
The young girl had clearly done her calculations.
Sensing the cold and dangerous aura emanating from his body, Ning Li coughed lightly and softened her voice.
“Moreover, I’ve already made an appointment to have tea with Old Madam Gu tomorrow.”
This sentence finally brought Lu Huaiyu’s mind back to reality.
“Old Madam Gu?”
There was only one Old Madam Gu in the whole of Hong Kong City.
Ning Li nodded.
“We’ve already made the appointment. It won’t be good if I don’t go.”
This time, it was Lu Huai’s turn to be surprised.
“You and Old Madam Gu…”
There was no need to say more about what kind of status the Gu family had in Hong Kong City.
He knew that Ning Li, Gu Siyang, and Gu Tinglan were all on good terms, but Old Madam Gu…
Also, from the tone of her voice, it seemed like they were very close.
If they were just casual acquaintances, it was unlikely that they would receive such care from Old Madam Gu.
Ning Li pondered for a moment and said, “Old Madam Gu and I hit it off quite well. Moreover, she helped me a lot before, so…”
“She helped you?”
Lu Huaiyu narrowed his eyes,
“What is it?”
Ning Li had come here with Yu Pingchuan and had been invited by Gu Tinglan. Logically speaking, she should be having a good time here.
What kind of thing had happened that had alarmed Old Madam Gu?
Ning Li’s eyebrows twitched.
She had only mentioned it casually, but Lu Huaiyu had immediately noticed something was not right. This man was really sharp.
Moreover, with his ability, if he wanted to investigate, what could he not find?
“Actually, it was only just that someone else had taken a fancy to the same horse as I had, at the same time. It’s not a big deal.”
Ning Li did not want to waste her breath talking about this.
On one hand, Lu Huaiyu had just arrived from the Capital. She did not want to affect his mood by mentioning this.
On the other hand, the matter had already passed. She did not think it was even worth taking it to heart.
“Second Brother, have you eaten dinner?”
Lu Huaiyu saw that she was not interested in talking about it, so he resisted the urge to continue asking about it.
“Then, what would you like to eat? I’ll make it for you. Just don’t ask for anything too complicated.”
This room was equipped with a small kitchen and a small refrigerator. Some simple meals could still be made.
The corners of Lu Huaiyu’s lips curved slightly. He held her hand and kissed the back of her soft hand.
“Teacher Yu said that Ah Li’s hands are too precious to do such things.
Ning Li felt a little helpless.
He was very clear about whether she could do it or not.
“Teacher Yu merely said it casually. Don’t take it to heart.”
Lu Huaiyu seemed to agree with her.
“Actually, I feel that what Teacher Yu said was not quite right either.”
Ning Li nodded and turned around to go to the small kitchen.
Lu Huaihe pulled her back and looked at her with a burning gaze.
Ning Li turned around, wondering about what he wanted.
Lu Huaiyu’s Adam’s apple moved slightly. He bent his head closer and said with a low smile, “What’s precious about Ah Li is more than just her hands.”
There was not a part of this little girl that was not delicate, not a part that was not soft.
She was really very precious.
Ning Li looked at him with wide eyes. Her clear and beautiful peach blossom eyes were sparkling, and the faint crimson color at the corner of her eyes had not completely faded.
She was more than just precious.
Lu Huaiyu let out a carefree laugh.
She was still inexperienced.
In the end, Lu Huaiyu had cooked the porridge himself.
By the time everything had been completely tidied up, it was already very late.
He was also staying at Bansen Hotel, and he was on the same floor as Ning Li.
After dinner, he sat with Ning Li for a long time before leaving.
The news that Lu Huaiyu had arrived in Hong Kong ahead of schedule had already spread that night.
There was a rumor that he would be attending the Carlsberg Auction.
This undoubtedly confirmed the rumor.
Countless celebrities and socialites were restless.
The last time he had come to Hong Kong City had been in last August.
After waiting for so long, he had finally come. It was no wonder that they were reacting like this.
3 pm, Carlsberg Auction House.
This was a single building with a total of three floors.
The huge round auction hall was luxurious and gorgeous. A six-meter-long crystal chandelier hung from the ceiling, giving it a complex and noble air.
The first floor was the auction hall. The stage for the auctioneer was very spacious, and the remaining red leather seats were arranged neatly. They were open seats.
The second and third floors were private rooms. They could be closed or open, according to the full-screen room owners’ preferences.
Of course, those who were qualified to sit here today were not ordinary people.
It was almost time for the show to begin, and the crowd arrived one after another.
Lu Huaiyu went straight up to the third floor from the VIP channel and took a seat in his private room.
As soon as he appeared, he immediately caused quite a commotion in the venue.
“Is that Second Master Lu?”
“It’s him! He’s really here!”
Yan Fei had been preparing information backstage. When she heard the commotion, she looked towards the door.
Zuo Ling happened to walk in. She lowered her voice, but could not hide her excitement.
“Feifei, Second Master Lu has really come to support you today!”
