Chapter 611 - Wishing Her a Carefree Life
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Ning Li was stunned for a moment.
This seemed to be… someone’s nickname?
She suddenly thought of the rainbow lollipop that Shen Zhijin had packed in a glass gift box on the eve of the Mid-Autumn Festival, and the candy that was piled up in the glove compartment of his car.
For so long, she had gotten the impression that Shen Zhijin had always been a loner.
His daily life was very regular, but it was extremely monotonous and boring.
He did not even participate in informal gatherings.
But now, he had specially asked for a TO sign for this “Candy”.
Her eyes curved ina smile.
“Okay. I’ll get Mian to sign it and bring it over.”
As she said this, she thought of something and asked, “So… Teacher Shen, have you any specific blessing in mind? You can specify this too.”
Shen Zhijin was stunned.
She did not know if it was an illusion, but for a moment, Ning Li actually saw a bit of bewilderment in Shen Zhijin’s eyes.
However, very quickly, this expression silently disappeared.
Shen Zhijin’s eyelids drooped slightly, as if he was seriously thinking about this question.
After a moment, he looked up.
“Thope she has no worries in her life.”6
Ning Li sorted out all the notes and sent them to Lin Fengmian.
Lin Fengmian quickly replied, “Okay.”
He had almost recovered from his injury recently, and the company had only arranged a small amount of work for the sake of his health and well-being.
On one hand, he had already gotten a lot of exposure. However, after going through many ups and downs, his fans were now very solid.
On the other hand, he had been preparing for a concert recently, so most of his energy had been spent on that.
Looking at the whole entertainment industry, there were only a handful of people who had ever been able to hold a concert less than a year after they made their debut.
Recently, the company had been preparing to build momentum, so he was also adjusting his state of mind.
Ning Li did not tell him about any of the bad things that had happened. All she told him was to prepare well for the concert.
The results of Mei Yanging’s biopsy came out very quickly. Fortunately, it was benign. Also, because it had been discovered early, there was a higher hope for the treatment to work.
Ning Li heaved a sigh of relief in her heart.
Mei Yanging was quite open-minded about being sick. There was only one thing: he liked to eat all kinds of delicious food. Now that he had this disease, he had lost one great pleasure.
Yu Pingchuan had accompanied him through all the hospitalization procedures.
The news of Mei Yan being hospitalized soon reached the Lu family.
Lu Huaiyu and Old Master Lu were having breakfast together at the dining table. When they heard this news, they stopped what they were doing.
Old Master Lu let out a long sigh.
“It was found in his last medical checkup. Fortunately, it was discovered early.”
Lu Huaiyu’s expression froze slightly.
“Old Master Mei’s body has always been very strong…”
“That’s right! When he scolded me a while ago, he was still full of spirit! Who would have thought…” Old Master Lu said as he shook his head. “T’ll go to the hospital to see him later.”
Lu Huaiyu nodded.
“Should I accompany you?”
Old Master Lu simply refused.
“He is most impatient with such things. He might not be happy if you go and he might even cause trouble.”
He knew Mei Yanging’s personality the best.
That person was most impatient with dealing with human relationships.
“With this illness of his, who knows how many people will be rushing to see him? I’m afraid it will annoy him to death.”
Lu Huaiyu smiled.
“The chairman of the National Arts Association, the founder of the Qing School, the oil painting pioneer who has influenced more than half of the artists in the local arts scene… Old Mei is highly respected, so it’s no wonder that everyone is being like this.”
Old Master Lu snorted coldly.
“It’s more like he has scolded more than half of the local arts scene! His mouth has offended countless people!
“You know very well that many people would be glad for Elder Mei to scold them, but they are not that lucky.”
Old Master Lu stopped mid-sentence and suddenly stopped. He looked Lu Huaiyu up and down suspiciously.
“Huaiyu, you seem to be a little off lately. Are you the grandson of me, Lu Qishan, or the grandson of Mei Yanging?”
Lu Huaiyu had always been very respectful of Mei Yanging, but he had never been like this…
Anyway, Old Master Lu was starting to doubt his life.
Lu Huaiyou leaned back and a faint helpless smile flashed across his lips.
“To tell you the truth, Elder Mei has a painting that I’ve long been interested in. I was going to ask for it and hope that Elder Mei would be willing to part with it. I didn’t expect that Elder Mei to be sick.”
Under such circumstances, it would definitely not be suitable to ask for a painting.
Old Master Lu finally understood.
“Forget it, let’s just wait until he recovers first.”
Lu Huaiyu nodded.
‘That evening, Ning Li and He Xiaochen made an appointment to eat hotpot together.
He Xiaochen held the menu in her hands, feeling very conflicted. After a long time, she only ordered a few vegetarian dishes.
Ning Li looked at her in surprise.
“Xiaochen, don’t you have a good appetite?”
He Xiaochen shook her head in grief.
“No, it’s just that I’ve been trying to lose weight recently.”
Ning Li looked at her.
“I thought that word had nothing to do with you.”
It was very cruel to make a foodie lose weight.
“Then I’ll just order for myself?”
‘As Ning Li said this, she ordered the tripe, shrimp paste, and fatty beef.
He Xiaochen’s eyes were wide open.
“Ning Li, don’t tempt me like that! I can’t take it!”
Ning Li, “Oh, and add another portion of duck intestines.”
He Xiaochen, “!!!”
She covered her mouth sadly.
“My brother will be having a concert soon, I need to lose weight quickly so that I’ll look pretty when I go!”
Ning Li, “… I thank you on Mian’s behalf.”
He Xiaochen, “Woo!”
“Forget it, I don’t want to see it! I just won’t look!” He Xiaochen said as she picked up her phone in a bid to divert her attention.
Suddenly, she exclaimed.
Ning Li looked up.
He Xiaochen excitedly handed over her phone with a look of shock on her face.
“Xu Yini has been exposed as a diva! She’s already on the trending searches!”
