Chapter 506: Taught His Grandson Well
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
The banquet hall had regained its liveliness, but the atmosphere was subtly different from before.
The crowd continued to mingle, but in tacit agreement, they would throw glances in a certain direction from time to time.
Lu Huaiyu and Ning Li were standing together.
Both of them were good-looking people. Now that they stood side by side, one was tall and straight, while the other was slender and tall, it was clear that they matched each other very well.
There seemed to be an invisible aura surrounding the pair. It surrounded them alone, making them easily distinguishable from the others.
It was a kind of tacit understanding and closeness that could not be expressed with words. The others could only watch from afar and could not blend in.
“There are so many socialite daughters around. Second Master Lu did not even take a fancy to any of them. I did not expect that he would choose such a person in the end…”
Someone was still feeling indignant and could not help but mutter in a low voice.
“Other than that, it’s clear that Miss Ning is really beautiful. Besides, she was able to win the Second Master Lu’s heart and the Gu family’s favor. No matter what her background is, just being able to do this is already much better than the others.”
“That makes sense. She’s really capable. There’s no need to be jealous.”
“I think this Miss Ning is pretty good. At least Second Master Lu really likes her. It’s better than some self-indulgent people.”
At this point, the group of people looked at each other and laughed in a low voice.
“Isn’t that so? Second Young Master Lu’s visit to Hong Kong city this time was to make a rare high-profile appearance at the auction. He even put the watch on Ning Li in public. Wasn’t he deliberately telling everyone that Ning Li was his woman? Since he likes her so much, there’s nothing left to say. It could only be said that Ning Li has a good life, so it’s useless to be envious. On the other hand, there are some people…”
In a corner of the banquet hall, Yan Fei was holding a wine glass in her hand, her knuckles turning white.
Of course, she could hear what those people were saying.
She had so looked forward to this event with so much joy in the beginning. How embarrassing and humiliating was it now!
Zhuo Qianqian asked worriedly, “… Feifei, are you okay?”
Yan Fei forced a smile.
Zuo Ling looked angry. “Feifei, don’t take what happened today to heart! That Ning Li is just relying on the fact that Second Master Lu likes her now to get what she wants. In the future, without a good family background, if Second Master Lu doesn’t feel the same for her anymore, what else will she be able to do?”
Yan Fei did not say anything, but her chest felt even more stifled.
This might have been true if it was someone else, but… that person was Lu Huaiyu.
The Lu family had been distinguished for generations, and he was extremely outstanding. He was truly unattainable.
Over the years, many women had chased after him, but he had always remained aloof and unmoved.
But this time… he was the one who had taken the initiative to pursue her. He wanted to hold that person in the palm of his hand.
Ning Li did not have a good background, so he had changed his usual low-key style and publicly supported Ning Li on such an occasion tonight.
He was Ning Li’s biggest backer.
Wasn’t that enough?
She looked over there again and saw Lu Huaiyu bending his head and talking into Ning Li’s ear.
She did not know what he was saying, but Ning Li pulled on his hand.
He chuckled and kissed the side of her face as if no one else was around.
All he could see was that girl.
Yan Fei put down her wine glass.
“My stomach doesn’t feel well, so I’ll go home first.”
On the other side of the banquet hall, several bigwigs were standing together.
“That was truly unexpected. This one from the Lu family doesn’t usually make a move, but the moment he does… he makes it really extraordinary,” a middle-aged man said with a smile, “Countless families have been eyeing him as a marriage prospect, but who knew he already had a girlfriend?”
Lu Huaiyu’s actions tonight would be enough to ensure that those people would give it a rest.
Gu Tingfeng looked over and muttered, “Yeah, who would have thought that Lu Huaiyu was her boyfriend…”
The person who spoke was stunned.
Why did he sound like what he said had a different meaning?
Gu Tingyun looked over with a smile on his face.
“Oh, it seems like Big Brother doesn’t know about this either? Siyang didn’t mention it?”
Gu Tingfeng frowned.
“That kid has always been unreliable!”
This was such a big piece of news, yet he had not told him about it!
He needed to be taught a lesson again!
In the distance, Gu Siyang sneezed fiercely.
He rubbed his sore and swollen nose, his eyes having glazed over.
“Who is this person who misses me that much…?”
Gu Tingyun advised gently, “Father and Mother seem to know about it. He just probably forgot to mention it, Big Brother.”
It would have been better if he had not mentioned it. Gu Tingfeng became even more depressed when he mentioned it. He raised a glass of wine.
Gu Tingchuan’s face was gloomy.
“Didn’t you say that she only took the college entrance exam this year? Lu Huaiyu said that he had chased after her for a long time. When did that happen?”
The Second Master of the Gu family was famous for his fierce temper. Now, he looked even more fierce with a cold face and sullen voice.
The big shots at his side exchanged glances.
No, why did this person’s focus seem to be different?
Gu Tingyun thought of something and looked to the side.
Yu Pingchuan was not far away, chatting with a few people.
Gu Tingyun took a few steps over and began to chat with them with a smile. Then, seemingly unintentionally, he asked, “Teacher Yu, about Ning Li and Lu Huaiyu… you must have known about this a long time ago, right?”
Hearing this, the smile on Yu Pingchuan’s face instantly faded a little.
He snorted coldly.
Seeing his reaction, Gu Tingyun was slightly stunned.
Why did it seem like… Yu Pingchuan had quite a strong opinion regarding this matter?
Just then, Gu Tingfeng’s raised voice suddenly came from behind.
“What did you say?”
Everyone looked over and saw Gu Tingfeng holding his cell phone. It was unclear who he was on the phone with, but his expression did not look too good.
Noticing these gazes, he immediately hung up.
On the other end, Gu Siyang sneezed twice.
The person beside him asked, “Siyang, what’s wrong?”
Gu Siyang scratched his head.
“Nothing. It’s just that my dad suddenly called. It’s fine, it’s fine. Don’t worry about it!”
Gu Tingfeng looked at Lu Huaiyu again.
After a long while, he sneered.
Everyone was perplexed.
Gu Tingyun asked, “Big Brother, what’s wrong?”
Gu Tingfeng’s lips moved without any sound. After a long while, he sneered.
“Nothing. I just realized that that kid from the Lu family is not very concerned with human decency.”
Everyone was even more confused.
The Second Master of the Lu family… how had he offended this person?
Old Master Gu seemed to have heard the commotion and casually asked, “What’s wrong with him now?”
Gu Tingfeng paused and said expressionlessly, “When he got together with Ning Li, Ning Li was only seventeen.”
Old Master Gu’s expression changed.
Gu Tingchuan put his wine glass down with a bang.
Gu Tingyun’s smile disappeared.
The atmosphere suddenly became tense.
The other big shots were at a loss.
The first one who spoke laughed.
“Then… If that’s the case, Second Master Lu has been in love with Miss Ning for a long time. Haha–”
Before he could finish, he was interrupted by Old Master Gu’s cold snort.
“Lu Qishan has really taught his grandson well.”
The other person consciously swallowed the rest of his laugh and coughed awkwardly.
How did this involve the old man from the Lu family…
After a while…
Gu Tingfeng said, “Heh.”
Gu Tingchuan said, “Hmph.”
Gu Tingyun said, “Oh.”
