The Tea Tasting Hall.

Ning Li was chatting with Old Master Gu and Old Madam Gu.

A man in his thirties and dressed in a suit and tie walked in. He lowered his head and whispered something into Old Master Gu’s ear.

Ning Li vaguely heard Lu Huaiyu’s name mentioned.

Her heart moved slightly, and just as she was about to raise her eyes, her phone suddenly vibrated.

She brought it over to take a look, and her gaze froze.

After thinking for a moment, her fingertips moved slightly, and she quietly replied with one word.

[ Follow. ]

Then, she held onto her phone.

Old Master Gu suddenly snorted.

“He’s really smart–“

There seemed to be disdain behind his words, but also a subtle admiration.

Old Madam Gu asked, “Brother Ci, what’s wrong?”

“It’s still Lu–“

Old Master Gu had just started when he saw Ning Li out of the corner of his eye and swallowed the rest of his words.

He paused and changed to a more polite way of saying it.

“It’s nothing. It’s just that I heard that today’s auction has been quite rowdy.”

Ning Li rubbed her teacup, her eyelids twitching slightly.

Old Master Gu’s way of saying it was really tactful.

Hearing him say this, Old Madam Gu made a vague guess as to what was going on and smiled gently.

“Is that so? It’s really a pity that Ah Li didn’t go then.”

Ning Li shook her head.

“It’s good to be here with you.”

Hearing this, Old Madam Gu’s smile deepened.

“Ah Li is good at knowing how to make me happy. Young people like to be lively. What’s the point of drinking tea with me here?”

The corners of Ning Li’s lips curled up.

“It’s also fine not to join in when things are lively. Moreover, your tea is really very good.”

Ever since her grandmother had passed away, she had always been alone.

It was probably because of the expression on Old Madam Gu’s face when she had mistaken her for someone else that day that she had found it hard not to feel moved. Every time she faced Old Madam Gu, she felt a little closer to her.

Old Madam Gu looked at her and silently sighed.

This child was really well-behaved.

Old Master Gu gave the man a few words of advice, and the man quickly agreed and left.

Then, he looked at Ning Li, as if he wanted to say something but hesitated.

Ning Li looked over inquisitively.

“Old Master Gu?”

This expression… why was it so subtle?

Old Master Gu pointed outside.

“It’s not so hot now. Li, do you want to go and see Qingfeng?”

Ning Li nodded.

“Sure.”

At the auction.

After what Lu Huaiyu had said, Zhong Haoqi got up and angrily left.

If it had been someone else, he would not have let it go.

However, this person was Lu Huaiyu.

Even if they were in Hong Kong City, he did not dare to do anything to Lu Huaiyu. He could only suppress his anger and resentment.

A few people hurriedly followed him out, whispering to him as they walked out.

“… Young Master Zhong, don’t take this matter to heart. After all, he is the one who spent 100 million yuan for nothing, right?”

When Zhong Haoqi heard this, his anger finally subsided a little.

He did not know how he had offended Lu Huaiyu which had resulted in him being a target of revenge.

In any case, it would be impossible for this hurdle to be easily overcome.

He took a deep breath and sneered.

“That’s true. After all, he is the Second Master of the Lu family in the Capital. He makes such a big deal just to show his temper. Of course, others can’t compare to him.”

He really wanted to see how much capital Lu Huaiyu had that would be able to withstand such an ordeal!

The auction continued.

However, the atmosphere in the venue was very different from before.

Many people’s thoughts drifted to Lu Huaiyu.

After all… spending 100 million just to buy Zhong Haoqi’s displeasure. Such a thing was not something an ordinary person could do.

While the crowd marveled at the rich and capricious Second Master of the Lu family, they secretly tried to find out what kind of enmity Zhong Haoqi had with him to cause such a disturbance today.

The air in the entire venue seemed to become restless.

However, only Lu Huaiyu, who was at the center of the storm, was the calmest.

He sat on the sofa, still elegant and noble, yet languid.

It was as if that earlier incident was not worth his attention for even a second.

After that, a few more items were auctioned off, and all of them were successfully auctioned off at a good price.

However, after Lu Huaiyu’s previous bids, the rest of the items seemed much more dull and boring.

After another half an hour, the auction finally came to an end.

Yan Fei had a smile on her face, and her eyes seemed to be filled with more vigor.

“The next lot will be the last item up for auction today: a collectible antique watch– The Mond Mille watch. This watch is inlaid with 1,001 diamonds and sapphires. The dial is surrounded by stars and the moon. If you look at it from a specific angle, you can even see the nebula ring engraved on it. Therefore, this watch also has another romantic nickname: The Night of the Milky Way.

“The starting price for this item is 30 million.”

After she finished speaking, her gaze subconsciously swept across the third floor, but she was suddenly stunned.

Even though this last item was out, Lu Huaiyu did not bother looking over at it. Instead, his head was lowered, as if he was looking at his phone.

However, very soon after, he raised his gaze slightly and looked over.

Several people had already raised their paddles one after another, and the price quickly exceeded 50 million.

Lu Huaiyu merely observed the proceedings indifferently.

When the bidding price reached 110 million, the last two people in the field were still competing.

Finally, he raised his paddle.

“120 million.”

When Lu Huaiyu finally raised his paddle, many people became excited.

This amount was only 10 million away from his last bid!

When one of the two remaining bidders saw that Lu Huaiyu had started bidding, he tactfully withdrew.

However, the remaining bidder continued to raise the bid.

“130 million.”

Lu Huaiyu immediately followed.

“140 million.”

As soon as he finished speaking, the crowd instantly became restless.

This had already broken his own record, and it had also broken the auction price record of the Carlsberg Auction House for the past year!

That big shot frowned. After hesitating for a moment, he still chose to raise the bid.

“150 million.”

Lu Huaiyu tapped his fingertips lightly, a faint smile on his face.

Only those who were familiar with him would understand. This was the expression he would have when he was about to get what he wanted.

He raised his paddle again.

“170 million.”

A gasp came from the crowd.

Even though they had known that Lu Huaiyu was determined to get this watch, they still had not thought that it would be sold for the sky-high price of 170 million!

Yan Fei’s heart was beating rapidly.

“170 million going once.”

“170 million going twice.”

“170 million going thrice.”

Thud.

“Sold.”

The moment the hammer had dropped, Lu Huaiyu stood up.

The moment he stepped out of the room, an auction house staff member immediately came forward to greet him.

“Second Master Lu, will the three items you are auctioning today be sent back to the Capital for you, or–“

Lu Huaiyu looked at the time.

“Give me the watch.”

The staff member was shocked. “Now? I’m afraid that you will have to wait a little longer. There are still some procedures to go through.”

Lu Huaiyu nodded.

Then, just as he was about to walk to the VIP room, he saw out of the corner of his eye that there were all kinds of small commemorative gifts placed in the gift cabinet next to him.

In the corner, a starry lollipop gift box had been placed.

It had probably been specially prepared for young children.

He raised his eyebrows slightly and walked over.

His slender and fair fingers tapped lightly.

“Please prepare a copy of this to be taken away..”
