Chapter 604: Mei Yanging

Xin Wu wanted to dissuade him a little more. Elder Mei valued the painting very much. Even if Lu Huaiyu came again, he would most likely still not sell it.

However, seeing Lu Huaiyu’s firm attitude, he thought twice about it and swallowed his words.

Forget it.

Everyone in the Capital knew that the Lu family was famous for being proud and stubborn.

Since he was so persistent, no one would be able to persuade him otherwise. It was best to let him be.

After Lu Huaiyu had finished speaking, he took his leave politely.

The black Bentley then slowly drove away.

Lu Huaiyu took his phone out and called Ning Li.

The busy tone rang for a long time before the call was picked up.

“Second Brother?”

“Ah Li, are you free this afternoon? Would you like to have lunch together?”

Ning Li paused for a moment.

“Second Brother, I’m afraid it’s not convenient for me today.”

Lu Huaiyu raised his eyebrows. “Oh?”

Ning Li looked at Yu Pingchuan, who was sitting next to her, and explained, “Teacher Yu hasn’t been feeling well recently. So, I’m currently accompanying him to register at the hospital.”

Yu Pingchuan silently tightened his grip on the sheet of paper.

He really was not feeling unwell…

Lu Huaiyu was a little surprised.

“Teacher Yu? Is it serious?”

“It shouldn’t be too serious. It’s just the old problem.”

“That’s good.”

Since she was accompanying Yu Pingchuan, Lu Huaiyu gave up on his idea.

“Grandfather has been missing you recently.”

Ning Li silently calculated the time in her mind.

It seemed that she had not been to visit the Lu family for a while.

Ever since she had joined Shen Zhijin’s research team, much of her time was spent in the laboratory.

After a short discussion with Lu Huaiyu about returning to pay a visit to the Lu family home on a day when they were free, Ning Li hung up the phone.

Following that, Ning Li received another phone call and stood up.

“Tm coming, I’m just going down to pick someone up.”

Yu Pingchuan immediately said, “I’ll go with you!”

Ning Li looked at him indifferently.

“You’ll be much more at ease if you wait in line here.”

Yu Pingchuan was nailed back to the stool by her gaze.

“0h.

Ning Li then went downstairs.

Lu Huaiyu ended the phone call and without thinking, began fiddling with his phone.

Yi Bin asked, “Second Master, where would you like to go now?”

In order to ask for that painting, Lu Huaiyu had specially set aside an entire day today.

They had not expected Elder Mei to not be around and that their trip would be in vain.

Miss Ning was not free either.

Lu Huaiyu thought for a moment before saying, “Let’s go back to the Lu family residence.”

Yi Bin nodded.

“Yes, sir.”

The Lu family residence.

Old Master Lu was sitting in the study, holding a book in his hand and carefully flipping through it.

He was reading it so carefully that Lu Huaiyu had to knock on the door twice before he came back to his senses.

“Grandpa.”

The door of the study was not locked. Old Master Lu looked up and saw Lu Huaiyu standing at the door.

He was delighted.

“Huaiyu, why did you suddenly come back today?”

Lu Huaiyu’s gaze swept across the book in his hand.

The huge G&S logo on the cover could not be more obvious.7

It was a commemorative booklet that had been specially made by G&S for the Night of Thorns. It included the full range of gowns, as well as… an exclusive interview with Ning.

Looking at the booklet that seemed out of place within the entire study, he was momentarily silent.

Old Master Lu did not notice the expression on Lu Huaiyu’s face. Looking behind him, he asked, “Where’s Ah Li?”

“She was busy today and didn’t come over,” Lu Huaiyu said.

Old Master Lu had stood up when he heard the sound of Lu Huaiyu’s voice and sat down again. He could not hide the disappointment on his face.

“Then why did you come back?”1

Lu Huaiyu,

Old Master Lu lowered his head, but then he suddenly thought of something else. He looked up again and asked curiously, “Wait, I seem to remember that you were going to Jinse Bay today. Why did you come back so early?”

Lu Huaiyu walked into the room and explained, “Elder Mei was not there.”

“Not there?”

Old Master Lu looked surprised.

“His routine has never changed for so many years, yet he was not there today?”

“Yes, Uncle Xin said that Elder Mei went for a medical check-up.”

Old Master Lu was shocked when he heard this.

He paused for a long time before muttering involuntarily, “… Is Mei Yanging dying?”

Lu Huaiyu choked and pinched his nose.

Before he could speak, Old Master Lu shook his head repeatedly to deny it.

“No way! We played chess together just three days ago, and he still had the energy to scold me for an hour without stopping… Why would he suddenly want to have a medical check-up?”

After hearing his words, Lu Huaiyu was speechless.

He paused for a moment, ignored the first part, and explained, “Elder Mei is old, after all. It’s good to have more tests.”

Old Master Lu sneered.

“Does Mei Yanging even have such an awareness? So many people in the Arts Association have begged him to go out for more walks, but he’s too lazy to bother. Now he’s actually taken the initiative to go for a medical check-up?”

No one could blame him for having a big reaction. It was just that Mei Yanqing’s actions were too unusual, which seemed quite suspicious.

Lu Huaiyu moved forward to help Old Master Lu change his tea before pouring himself a cup.

He sat down beside him, his slender fingers gently touching the teacup. The light tea fragrance spread, refreshing his mind.

He took a sip of the tea, and seeing that Old Master Lu was still puzzled, he advised, “Maybe Elder Mei suddenly changed his mind. He has always been in good health, but it’s good that he’s taking more care.”

Old Master Lu felt that what he said made sense.

However…

He hesitated for a long time before he said hesitantly, “Huaiyu, I think that Mei Yanging has changed a lot in the past few months. The few times he played chess with me during that time, I don’t know why, but he cursed me a lot.”

Lu Huaiyu paused.

“… If you regretted two moves less, would Elder Mei stop scolding you?”

“Of course not!”

Old Master Lu was depressed when he mentioned this,

“He’s the one who regrets chess now, and he’s also the one who scolds others! The thing is, when he plays chess with others, his temper is good. But with me…. those who don’t know about his bad temper would think that the Lu family had stolen his treasure!”
