Chapter 507 - Never Lose Out to Lu Huaiyu

Chapter 507: Never Lose Out to Lu Huaiyu

Lu Huaiyu sensed something and turned around to look.

However, because they were quite a distance away, they could not see the expressions of the Gu family members clearly.

However, he was sure that they were indeed looking at him, and they did not seem to be very friendly.

He raised his eyebrows slightly.

Seeing this, Ning Li asked curiously, “Second Brother, what’s wrong?”

Lu Huaiyu withdrew his gaze and smiled.

“Nothing, It’s just that I feel that… the Gu family does seem to like me very much.”

Ning Li recalled the incident at the horse racing area the other day and explained it to him briefly.

“… It’s probably because of that. Old Madam Gu probably misses the Fourth Miss Gu too much, and when she saw my back view while riding the horse, she mistook me for her.”

She sighed softly as she spoke.

Actually, Old Madam Gu was quite a pitiful person.

She did not want to get too involved with the Gu family for such a reason, but whenever she recalled the memory of Old Madam Gu looking at her with tears in her eyes, she could not bear it.

Anyway, she would not be staying in Hong Kong City for long, so it would be good for her to accompany Old Madam Gu while she was here.

Lu Huaiyu nodded.

Actually, he had already heard the rumors, but coming from Ning Li, it was different.

Ning Li sipped her orange juice, her eyelids drooping slightly.

There was actually something else that she had not mentioned.

She was a little envious of the Fourth Miss Gu.

Although she did not know how the Fourth Miss Gu had passed, her mother had been missing her for so many years.

Not everyone in this world was lucky enough to be doted on by her mother.

Although she had already seen a lot in life and was not easily affected by such emotions, she was still touched when she thought of Old Madam Gu and the Fourth Miss Gu.

Lu Huaiyu lowered his eyes and looked at her quietly. After a moment, he gently pinched her cheek and said with a smile, “My Ah Li is such a good person. Of course, she feels everyone’s pain.”

Ning Li’s heart moved slightly, and her thick and curly eyelashes trembled slightly.

Then, she took Lu Huaiyu’s hand.

Her soft and tender fingers slipped through his fingers and intertwined with his ten fingers.

Lu Huaiyu could not help but laugh.

“Ah Li is so smart. She learned it after being taught once.”

Ning Li’s ears were tinged red. She looked up at him, her peach blossom eyes shining brightly.

She knew that she was not a very good person, and she did not have many people who loved her.

However, she had Lu Huaiyu.

This was probably all due to her luck.

Gu Tinglan soon realized that something was wrong with his father and his brothers.

He quietly observed them for a while, before finally coming over to Gu Tingfeng’s side.

“Big Brother, what’s wrong?”

Gu Tingfeng glanced at him.

“You and Lu Huaiyu have a good relationship, right? Why didn’t you tell me about him and Ning Li before?”

Gu Tinglan was momentarily stunned, but then he laughed.

“I was a little busy before, so… Big Brother, you seem to be very concerned about Ning Li.”

As soon as he said this, Gu Tingchuan and Gu Tingyun looked over at the same time.

Gu Tingfeng frowned.

“But, she is Siyang’s friend, after all! Besides, wasn’t it you who personally invited her?

Gu Tinglan nodded. This was a legitimate reason.

Then, he looked around and hesitantly asked, “Then, why do Second Brother and Third Brother seem to be… angry too?”

Gu Tingchuan immediately raised his eyebrows and said loudly, “In what way am I angry?!”

Gu Tinglan, “…”

Gu Tingyun gave a slight smile.

“Fifth Brother, don’t talk nonsense. Regardless, it’s really inappropriate for him to chase after a seventeen-year-old girl like that.”

Gu Tinglan rubbed the space between his eyebrows.

“This… Actually, the two of them are in a special situation…”

Lu Huaiyu had not been well. Now that he had finally recovered, it was not appropriate for him to say anything more.

Moreover, from the beginning to the end, Lu Huaiyu had always been extremely disciplined.

The more he had liked Ning Li, the more care he had taken with her.

The only exception was that he could not help himself on the day before Ning Li’s eighteenth birthday, and he had revealed his feelings to her.

This matter was neither too big nor too small.

He was familiar with both Lu Huaiyu and Ning Li, so he knew them better than anyone else. When this matter had been brought up, his thoughts were naturally not the same as others.

He looked around and asked, “By the way, where’s father?”

Gu Tingfeng said, “He went upstairs.”

Looking at his expression at that time, if he had stayed any longer and looked at Lu Huaiyu any more, he would have been unable to hold himself back from cursing him.

In fact, he was probably cursing him upstairs now.

Gu Tinglan was silent for a moment.

A thought came to his mind and his expression changed. After hesitating for a while, he asked, “Big Brother, I forgot to ask. When Ning Li changed into riding clothes and rode a horse… did she really look like Fourth Sister?”

Unlike his three older brothers, he had been ten years younger than Gu Tingyin. All of his memories of her were actually very distant.

Gu Tingfeng and the others could still roughly remember the way Gu Tingyin had ridden a horse when she was Ning Li’s age. However, he only had vague memories of her.

That was why this thought had never crossed his mind before when he looked at Ning Li before.

When he mentioned this, Gu Tingfeng went quiet for quite a while before he nodded.

“The back view looks very similar.”

Gu Tinglan was slightly startled.

“… Is that so?”

After the banquet ended, everyone dispersed and left.

However, what had happened that night was simply too exciting.

Lu Huaiyu had a girlfriend, and he had given away the 170 million Monde Mille watch which he had personally placed on her.

It had been announced publicly in an ostentatious manner.

And, that girl’s name was… Ning Li.

Almost overnight, this news spread throughout the whole of Hong Kong City.

At the same time, it had also spread back to the social circle in the Capital.

The entire city was in an uproar.

It was not known how many socialites had their hearts broken overnight.

More and more people began to dig up information related to Ning Li, wanting to know what kind of woman could have captured this person’s heart.

They wanted to know exactly what she had done to cause the always aloof and noble Lu Huaiyu to be willing to subject to her.

However, other than the public content, such as information about her high school, her relationship with the Ye family, her college entrance exam results, and so on, nothing else could be found.

It was as if there was an invisible hand covering the sky above her, shielding her from all the wind and waves.

Even though she was at the center of the vortex, she remained the most calm and peaceful.

The next day, Ning Li woke up at nine o’clock in the morning.

She looked at her phone and found that a piece of news had just been released.

— The Zhong Group in Hong Kong City had suffered a huge loss in the last quarter and was under suspicion of tax evasion. The relevant departments had received the report and were already preparing to investigate.

After all, this was one of the top three financial groups in Hong Kong City. Once this news had been released, it had become a big deal.

Ning Li raised her eyebrows slightly and put down her phone. She did not seem surprised or concerned.

She ordered breakfast.

Lu Huaiyu did not come over.

She sat alone at the table and smashed a hot spring egg.

As she slowly peeled off the skin, the clock on the wall pointed to ten o’clock.

Dong.

She took a bite of the egg, which was soft and fragrant.

After eating the egg, she picked up her phone again.

This time, it was 10:03 am.

As soon as the Hong Kong stock market opened, a large number of major forces had sold off their shares from the Zhong Group, causing panic in the market.

In just three minutes, the Zhong Group shares fell by the daily limit, and the market value of the Zhong Group disappeared by one billion..
