Gu Siyang nodded.
“Yes, it’s true.”
The identity of an SSS member was absolutely confidential. Even the Gu family might not know who it was.
However, the relevant information about the Jockey Club was relatively open, especially since two top members had won this amount of money at the same time, which had shocked everyone even more.
They had already become an extremely hot topic of discussion in private.
“D*MN! So, it’s really true?!”
Hearing Gu Siyang’s answer, they could not hide their shock.
After all, this amount was extremely shocking.
However, Gu Siyang seemed to have thought of something interesting.
“Actually, come to think of it, although both of them won money, their methods were very different. One of them bet 10 million US dollars on the third day and won alone on the fifth. After the competition ended, the prize money was doubled. The other one–”
He snorted and showed his index finger.
“Only one bet per day for three days in a row. Every time they won, the next bet was made with all of the money and prize money again. Just like that, the initial amount of 10 million US dollars had been multiplied by 10 times.”
The small group of people gasped.
It was already very rare to win one round, let alone three?
More importantly, they had chosen to bet all of their money every single time?!
“They bet that much?”
“Their mental fortitude is really strong… Were they really not afraid of completely losing everything?”
“They probably don’t lack money. After all, that’s an SSS member!”
Gu Siyang clicked his tongue.
“Whether he’s short of money or not is one thing. Whether he can afford to play or not is another question.”
Anyway, if he had not been asked to come if he was not capable of it.
He recalled the conversation he had with Gu Tinglan and made a speculation.
“He’s probably an old gambler.”
Ning Li put down the cup and took a few steps to the side. She took a strawberry pudding as if she was not very interested in what they were saying.
A familiar voice came from the side.
Ning Li turned around. It was Yan Fei and the others.
It was the first time that Yan Fei had seen Ning Li at such a close distance.
Although the private room had been next to each other, she had not paid much attention to it until Old Madam Gu and the others had gone over.
However, there were many people around at that time, so she had not gone forward. Thus, she had only seen her side profile.
Now that she was standing close to her, that perfect and beautiful face was displayed before her eyes without any reservations.
Ning Li was usually dressed very simply and casually. Now, that she had changed into this outfit, the impact was even greater.
The smile on the corner of Yan Fei’s lips froze for a moment, but it quickly returned to normal.
“Hello, Miss Ning. I’m Yan Fei.”
Zuo Ling and Zhuo Qianqian also sized up Ning Li and greeted her with a smile.
Ning Li’s expression was polite and indifferent.
Yan Fei smiled.
“I heard that Miss Ning’s horsemanship is very good. Even Old Madam Gu praised her. If there’s an opportunity, let’s meet up.”
Ning Li raised her eyebrows slightly.
It seemed that many people already knew that Old Madam Gu had seen her riding a horse that day and mistaken her for the Fourth Miss of the Gu family.
Otherwise, this Miss Yan Fei would not have said such things on purpose.
She must be afraid that others would forget that she had relied on this point to win Old Madam Gu’s favor.
She gave a faint smile.
“The horse race event has ended. I don’t think I will be able to stay here for long. Let’s talk about it next time when we have time.”
She did not have the slightest interest in riding a horse with Yan Fei.
Yan Fei was slightly taken aback. She had probably not expected Ning Li to reject her so directly.
However, she was the youngest first-class auctioneer in the Carlsberg Auction House, after all. She was good at judging others.
She immediately smiled and nodded.
“Okay, then we’ll see when it’s convenient for Miss Ning.”
Zuo Ling was displeased when she saw her lowering herself to talk to Ning Li like this.
With Ning Li’s background, she probably did not have the right to come here and attend the same dinner party with them, even if she worked hard for her whole life.
She was really taking herself seriously just because she bore a little resemblance to the Fourth Miss of the Gu family.
She glanced at Ning Li from head to toe again and said with a smile,
“Miss Ning Li, this little black dress of yours is the latest design from the T family, right? It’s really beautiful on you. But–”
She paused for a moment, holding her elbow with one hand and her chin with the other, as if she was considering something. There was a hint of regret in the tone of her voice as she spoke.
“However, it’s a little too monotonous. It would be more suitable if it was paired with a necklace or a bracelet.”
Ning Li was wearing this little black dress without a single piece of jewelry tonight.
Zuo Ling’s words seemed to be a kind suggestion, but her eyes were overflowing with contemptuous mockery.
Could Ning Li not have even brought out a decent piece of jewelry on such an occasion?
Ning Li’s expression remained calm.
The Banquet Hall’s door was pulled open once again.
A clear and tall figure appeared just outside the door.
Almost at the same time, the entire banquet hall fell silent.
At this moment, Sheng Yan and the others were following behind him.
However, everyone’s eyes were subconsciously attracted to that one figure.
The custom-made high-definition pure black suit outlined his perfect figure, making him appear even wider and narrower, tall and straight.
All the surrounding scenery seemed to fade until he was the only one anyone could see. He was cool and noble, with a sense of abstinence and coldness.
Yet, there was a fatal attraction about him that made people fall in love with him.
Everyone was looking at him.
Some were amazed, some were adoring him, some were happy, and some were shy…
Sheng Yan was standing next to Lu Huaiyu. Seeing this scene, he sensed that the atmosphere had suddenly become warm and flirtatious, so he teased him with a smile.
“Second Master Lu, it’s rare for you to come to Hong Kong City. However, I wonder how many hearts you have stirred.”
Lu Huaiyu did not respond to him. Instead, his eyes fell upon a tall and slender figure.
Sheng Yan followed his line of sight and looked over.
“That seems to be… Miss Ning Li?”
Since she was connected to the Gu family, it was naturally different.
He smiled and said, “I’ve heard rumors that Miss Ning Li is very liked by Old Madam Gu. Now that I’ve seen her today, she’s indeed beautiful.”
The corner of Lu Huaiyu’s lips curled up.
“She is indeed the most beautiful.”
