Chapter 640 - Levelling the Playing Field

Chapter 640 Levelling the Playing Field

The next day, Gu Tingyun left for the Capital.

At noon, he arrived at Rongyue Mansion. He got into the elevator and rang the doorbell.

The sound of footsteps came from inside, before the door was opened from the inside.

It was Ning Li who had opened the door.

The heating for the floor had been turned on. Ning Li was wearing a thin beige sweater, black pencil pants, and her wavy long hair draped over her shoulders.

She was slender and tall, beautiful and elegant.

When she saw Gu Tingyun, she smiled. “Mr. Gu San.”

Gu Tingyun’s gaze lingered on the dimples at the corner of her lips for a moment.

“Ning Li.”

She greeted him and looked behind him.

Gu Tingyun smiled.

“I asked my assistant to go back first. I’m alone.”

Ning Li understood.

“Please come in.”

Gu Tingyun followed her inside.

Lu Huaiyu was in the dining room.

Gu Tingyun took a look and found that the table had already been set.

His gaze swept past both Ning Li and Lu Huaiyu, and he raised his eyebrows slightly.

Although he knew that this was Lu Huaiyu’s residence, he had mentally prepared himself on the way to the appointment today.

However, when he saw the two of them standing together, he could feel a feeling of indescribable tacit understanding from them.

“Mr. Gu San, long time no see.”

Lu Huaiyu walked over and took the initiative to extend his hand.

On his handsome face, there was a polite smile. “I haven’t had the time to thank you properly for what happened before. Today, I finally have a chance to do so.” Gu Tingyun smiled slowly and shook hands with him.

“It’s nothing. It’s a small matter, there’s nothing to mention.”

Lu Huaiyu raised his eyebrows slightly.

It had not been a small matter for Gu Tingyun to step forth to intervene.

“It’s related to Ah Li so it is a big matter,” he said.

He said this seriously.

Gu Tingyun paused for a moment and smiled faintly.

Ning Li watched from the side. She felt that the atmosphere was a little strange. She said, “Mr. Gu San, please take a seat.” Gu Tingyun casually pulled out a chair and sat down.

Then, Ning Li and Lu Huaiyu took their seats opposite him.

Actually, Ning Li and Gu Tingyun did not know each other very well, but he was gentle, refined, and very talkative.

Adding to that was the presence of Lu Huaiyu, so they had quite a good chat.

“Oh right, Ning Li, I heard that you’ve been helping my sister-in-law by designing a high-quality gown for her recently?”

Gu Tingyun’s question seemed to be unintentional.

Ning Li nodded.

Gu Tingyun smiled and said, “Sister-in-law has always had high standards. She must like you a lot to ask for this.”

The corners of Ning Li’s lips curled up.

“Aunt Su has indeed been very good to me. Moreover, that gown won’t be for free. Aunt Su has designed a colored gemstone ring as a gift for me in return.”

“Oh? Is that so…” Gu Tingyun nodded as if he was deep in thought.

Tsk, so there had actually been a reason for the gift to be given… What a mistake.

He changed the topic. “You haven’t been to Hong Kong City for a while. When you have the time later, you can take some time to visit Qingfeng.”

I can

Ning Li actually had the same idea, but she had not found the right time yet.

“I need to find some time to go back and take a look,” she said.

Gu Tingyun paused for a moment and said with a smile, “The other day, Siyang sent a photo of you and my big brother to my mother. She liked it very much.”

“Old Madam Gu?”

Ning Li was slightly taken aback, and a sense of emotion welled up in her heart.

In fact, she could vaguely guess that Old Madam Gu might have thought of the Fourth Miss Gu when she saw the photo of them together.

“Yes, after you left, my mother mentioned it many times.” Gu Tingyun’s smile was gentle. “As you know, old people like to be lively when they’re old. Naturally, I’m happy to see this.”

Ning Li actually missed Old Madam Gu a little.

When she was in Hong Kong City, Old Madam Gu and Old Master Gu had treated her extremely well. Even the last time Gu Tingyun had helped her might have been for the same reason.

Lu Huaiyu raised his eyes slightly and looked at Gu Tingyun.

Gu Tingyun seemed to be unaware of it.

Ning Li thought for a moment and said, “Then… shall we take a photo today? You can show it to Old Madam Gu and Old Master Gu later?”

Gu Tingyun pondered for a moment, then nodded with a smile.


Lu Huaiyu leaned back with a faint smile on his face.

It was said that the third master of the Gu family was thoughtful, tactful, and meticulous. He had finally seen it for himself.

He said, “Ah Li, let me take it then.” Ning Li was a little surprised, but since he was willing to help, it was quite convenient.


Lu Huaiyu raised his phone, but it was in selfie mode.

Three faces appeared on the camera.

He and Ning Li were on one side of the dining table, while Gu Tingyun was on the other side.

“I think I’m blocking you a little. Ah Li, let’s switch seats.”

As he said this, he actually pulled Ning Li to adjust their seats.

Then, he raised his hand again, and his long arm went around Ning Li’s body.

This time, all three people could finally be seen completely in the camera frame.


Because they were holding their cell phones up to take photos, Lu Huaiyu looked as if he was holding Ning Li in his arms.

It was an extremely intimate gesture.

Gu Tingyun smiled.


Lu Huaiyu finished taking the photo and handed it to Ning Li for her to check.

Ning Li felt that there was no problem, so she said, “It’s pretty good. Second Brother, you can send it to Mr. Gu San and me later.”

Lu Huaiyu agreed and tapped a few times on the screen.

Gu Tingyun looked down at the photo.

Ning Li asked, “Mr. Gu San, what do you think?”

Gu Tingyun nodded with a smile.

“It’s pretty good. But, we’ve already eaten a meal and taken a photo. You don’t need to be so polite as to call me Mr. Gu San any longer.” Ning Li was stunned for a moment.


“Call me whatever you call my big brother.” Gu Tingyun was a man of negotiation, and his tone was kind and gentle.

Ning Li thought it made sense. Gu San had helped her so much, so it was only right for her to call him Uncle.

“Third Uncle Gu.”

Gu Tingyun’s smile relaxed.

“Ah Li, you don’t have to be so polite. If you need any help in the future, just say the word.”

Lu Huaiyu’s cell phone rang. He glanced at it and picked it up. “Doctor Gu.”
