Chapter 633 - High Emotional Intelligence of Ning Li
Previously in Hong Kong City, he had politely been addressed as Mr. Gu, but now, in the blink of an eye, he had become Uncle Gu?
Gu Tingfeng choked.
“… Well, look at Ning Li, she’s just so polite… Tingyun, your sister-in-law is urging me, so I’ll hang up first–”
“Why is Big Brother in such a hurry? Since I heard her already, I should at least greet her.”
Gu Tingyun spoke slowly.
“You did say that she is a polite child, right?”
Gu Tingfeng was rendered speechless. He could only say to Ning Li,”Ning Li, you… uh, Third Brother would like to say hello to you.”
Ning Li felt a little strange.
Gu Tingfeng and Gu Tingyun were on the phone with each other. Why had they dragged her into this for no reason?
However, the third master of the Gu family had specially sent her a gift in Hong Kong City before. He had even personally stepped forth to help solve the problem between her and Lin Fengmian. It was indeed time for her to greet him.
She walked over and took the phone from Gu Tingfeng.
“Mr. Gu San?”
Gu Tingfeng heard her speak and glanced over.
Did he really think that he could be called uncle just by having a conversation over the phone?
She was not even looking at him. Liang Su and Gu Siyang had been there together. That was why he had been called Uncle!
Such wishful thinking.
Gu Tingyun’s voice was gentle.
“Ning Li, how have you been lately?”
These words seemed to be a greeting between acquaintances.
Strictly speaking, she and Gu Tingyun were definitely not close. However, Gu Tingyun had helped her before, so she was not ungrateful.
Ning Li felt that he was probably asking about how she was after the previous news had subsided.
She nodded and said seriously, “Pretty good. Also, about what happened earlier… Thank you.”
Gu Tingyun smiled.
“No need to thank me, it’s nothing.”
Ning Li said, “To Mian and I, it’s a big deal.”
To Gu Tingyun, it might have just been a phone call, but to both Lin Fengmian and her, it was far more than that.
This thank you, of course, had to be said properly.
Gu Tingyun thought for a moment, then asked with a smile, “Then how would you like to thank me?”
Ning Li had actually thought about this before.
The third master of the Gu family did not lack for anything. No matter how much she thanked him, it would probably just be a small token of gratitude to him.
However, it was something that still had to be done.
As if sensing her hesitation, Gu Tingyun took the initiative to help her out with a suggestion.
“How about this, the next time I go to the Capital, why don’t you treat me to a meal?”
Ning Li was stunned. “Just… a meal?”
This was too…
“Yes, my taste is very similar to my big brother’s. Whatever you eat today, I can have the same.” Gu Tingyun was being very amiable. “I’m not picky.”
Ning Li felt that something was strange, but she could not tell what it was exactly.
However, since that was his suggestion, there was no reason for her to refuse.
“Okay. I’ll wait for you to come to the Capital then.”
Hearing this, Gu Tingyun relaxed and finally felt at ease.
“It’s settled then. Alright, you may go and have dinner with them.”
Ning Li agreed and returned the phone to Gu Tingfeng.
Gu Tingfeng had been listening at the side and was feeling displeased.
This third brother of his was truly shameless. Was it not just a small favor that he had done for Ning Li previously? How dare he make a big deal of it?
[f it had not been for the fact that he held Gu Media in his hands, would he have been able to do this?
He had only just taken the phone back, but before he could say anything, he heard Gu Tingyun say, “Big Brother, I won’t need to wait for you to return to Hong Kong City. I’ll go to the Capital to look for you instead.”
Gu Tingfeng, Why are you in such a hurry? That project will only start next month.”
Gu Tingyun sighed softly.
“Didn’t you hear it just now, Big Brother? Ning Li invited me to the Capital for a meal. I couldn’t possibly refuse a child’s kindness, could I?” Gu Tingfeng gritted his teeth. “Suit yourself then!”
He simply hung up the phone.
Looking at the phone after he had been hung up on, Gu Tingyun smiled.
Uncle Gu, did he think he was that great?
You could tell the difference just from a meal.
Ning Li was bewildered as she looked at Gu Tingfeng and saw the interesting expression on his face,
Had he not been… fine just now?
Why did he seem to be…
Gu Siyang was not bothered about his old father’s expression at all.
He had seen worse, and he was of the opinion that this was already considered good.
He went up to him to complain.
“Dad, mother just blamed me for not helping Ning Li carry her backpack. Have I not been wronged?”
Gu Tingfeng frowned and looked at him.
“Yeah, why didn’t you help Ning Li carry her backpack?”
Gu Tingfeng: “You eat so much every day, yet you can’t even use the energy that you get at critical moments!”
If he had not shouted out just now, would Third Brother have known that Ning Li had come?? Would he have been able to seize the opportunity and beg for that meal?!
What’s more, Ning Li was the one who had taken the initiative to invite him!
Gu Siyang decided to quietly withdraw.
Very good, now this was the expression he was very familiar with.
Gu Tingfeng waved at Ning Li.
“Ah Li, come over and eat. Your Auntie Su specially cooked for you today…”
Ning Li followed.
Gu Siyang stood where he was, feeling a little doubtful of life.
Why did it seem like he was a little redundant?
Although there were only four people at the dinner, the food was very sumptuous.
Ning Li silently noted it down in her heart. After all, she would have to treat the third master of the Gu family to a meal later…
Gu Siyang took his phone out and took a photo.
Tsk, it was rare for him to have a meal cooked by his mother. He had to immortalize the memory!
Hearing the sound, Liang Su looked over and suddenly said, “Ah Li, let’s take a photo together,”
Ning Li was stunned for a moment before nodding.
Liang Su was very happy.
“Come, sit closer. Siyang, help us take a photo.”
Gu Siyang readily agreed. “Okay.”
Ning Li moved closer to her.
Gu Siyang raised his phone and was about to take a photo when another face barged into the camera lens.
He paused and said to Gu Tingfeng, “Dad, you’re in the frame. Move to the side.”
His father had never liked taking photos before.
Gu Tingfeng•s face darkened.
Liang Su smiled as she looked at him.
This is Ah Li’s first time at our home. Let’s take some photos.”
Gu Tingfeng’s expression eased up a little. Gu Siyang, “… Alright, then I’ll begin shooting now.”
As he spoke, he raised his phone again.
Liang Su sat in the middle with a gentle smile on her face. Ning Li was on her right and was closer to her. She pursed her lips while Gu Tingfeng was on the other side with a rare gentle expression on his face.
After Gu Siyang finished taking the photo, he lowered his head to check it again.
The lighting was sufficient and the colors were sharp. It was a perfect composition!
He smiled smugly.
“I told you that with my talent, I should become a professional photographer. However, I still feel that there’s something missing here…”
As he spoke, he handed the photo over to the others.
“Is that so?”
Gu Tingfeng, “It’s pretty good.”
Liang Su, “It’s not lacking. Siyang took such a good photo.”
Ning Li was silent for a moment. Don’t you think it’s lacking you?”
In the end, under Gu Siyang’s strong request, the four of them finally took another photo.
Ning Li and Liang Su went upstairs.
Liang Su helped her measure the size of her finger and let her choose the color of the precious gem that she wanted.
She was very satisfied with Ning Li’s drawing and only changed a few small details.
After everything was over, Gu Siyang drove Ning Li back to school.
Ning Li had originally planned to go straight back to the dormitory, but she remembered that she had accidentally left her water tumbler in the lab, so she changed direction halfway.
The time now was nine o’clock in the evening, and many of the rooms in the institute’s laboratory building were still brightly lit.
Ning Li arrived at Room 601.
Yan Qiu and Fu Niannian were not around. Tang Yi was the only one recording the data in front of the equipment.
Just as she was about to leave, Shen Zhijin came out of his office.
Tang Yi, where’s Yan Qiu?”
Tang Yi turned around.
“Eldest Senior Brother wasn’t feeling well so he went to the school hospital just now. Why are you looking for him?”
Shen Zhijin said, “There’s a German document that needs to be translated. Forget it, I’ll do it myself.”
Tang Yi was momentarily stunned. “Don’t you still have to deal with the observatory’s total measurement data tonight? Why don’t I call Eldest Senior Brother–”
If he added on the task of another document, he would probably be delayed even more.
Shen Zhijin looked at the clock on the wall and said in a flat tone, There’s no need. You guys should go back soon. I’ll lock the door tonight.”
Ning Li put down her backpack.
“Let me help you with that document.”.
