Chapter 641 Was That He Refused to Let Himself Off
The phone call was from Gu Tinglan.
Ning Li and Gu Tingyun both looked over.
Ever since the Hong Kong City horse race, Gu Tinglan had accompanied Old Master Gu and Old Madam Gu for a period of time and had been busy abroad for a while. In total, Ning Li had not seen Gu Tinglan for about three months.
Lu Huaiyu asked, “Are you back in the Capital?!”
Gu Tinglan said something. Lu Huaiyu looked over and smiled.
“I’m afraid it’s not convenient now. Ah Li and I are having dinner with Mr. Gu San.”
Gu Tinglan was a little surprised.
“My third brother?”
“Yes, we’re at Rongyue Mansion now,” Lu Huaiyu reminded. “It’s to thank Mr. Gu San for his previous help.” Gu Tinglan quickly understood what he was talking about.
Although he had been abroad recently, he had been paying attention to the situation at home.
The outside world might not know much about the situation at that time, but he was a member of the Gu family. Gu Media had made a move, and it had been due to a personal phone call from Gu Tingyun. Of course, he would know about it.
Actually, Gu Tinglan was not surprised by this.
He had already known how much his parents favored Ning Li at the horse race.
Third Brother had always been considerate and filial. He was also very good at reading their thoughts. It would not be unusual for him to take the initiative to help.
However, for this matter, had Third Brother specially made this trip to the Capital?
“I see.” Gu Tinglan smiled. “Since that’s the case, let’s make an appointment for another time.”
He felt that it would be better for him not to join in the fun at this time.
Maybe his third brother had other plans.
Lu Huaiyu said goodbye and hung up the phone.
At this moment, Gu Tinglan instructed the driver to change their destination.
“Go to Jinshui No. 1 Courtyard.”
Half an hour later, Gu Tinglan arrived.
Liang Su and Gu Siyang were not there. Gu Tingfeng was the only one at home. After Gu Tinglan entered the house, she saw Gu Tingfeng sitting in the living room, looking at his phone in a daze.
Gu Tinglan called out, and Gu Tingfeng looked up.
“Tinglan, you’re here.”
Gu Tinglan walked over and glanced at his phone screen. He asked casually, “What are you looking at, Big Brother?” Gu Tingfeng coughed. “Nothing. By the way, didn’t you say that you had something else to take care of today?”
“Yes, Lu Huaiyu happened to be busy today, so we made an appointment for another time,” Gu Tinglan said as he sat down beside him. “Both he and Ning Li are having a meal with Third Brother.”
Gu Tingfeng snorted when he heard that.
So it was today!
Third Brother had not said a word! He had just come straight here!
If Gu Tinglan had not discovered it, he would not have even said anything!
Seeing his reaction, Gu Tinglan felt a little strange.
“Big Brother, what’s wrong?” Gu Tingfeng could not help but say, “It’s all because Third Brother is too slippery! Previously, Siyang had invited Ning Li over for a meal. When Third Brother found out about it, he used all kinds of tricks to get Ning Li to treat him to a meal.”
Had it not just been a small favor? He was so proud of it! He was even taking advantage of it!
Just for the sake of one meal, he had come all the way from Hong Kong City to the Capital!
Gu Tinglan was enlightened.
So there was such a reason behind this meal…
“I was wondering why Third Brother had come to the Capital when he’s been so busy recently.” Gu Tingfeng scoffed and changed the topic. “By the way, how’s your investigation abroad been going recently?”
Gu Tinglan pondered for a moment.
“I’ve confirmed it again. He did return to the country once, and it’s highly likely that he went to Lincheng. The direction of the previous investigation was not wrong.”
Gu Tingfeng frowned.
“But… you also searched Lincheng for a long time, but you didn’t find any trace of him going there, did you…” “After all, that was almost twenty years ago. Moreover, the fire was so big that even the files of the Lincheng Public Security Bureau didn’t have many clues. But one thing is certain: the time that Fourth Sister had an accident in Lincheng was the day he returned to the country.”
Gu Tinglan’s expression was cold.
“Isn’t that too much of a coincidence?”
Gu Tingfeng closed his eyes.
Yes, it was too much of a coincidence. That was why they had their suspicions. That was why they had resumed their investigation again more than ten years after the accident had happened.
Gu Tinglan looked at him. His lips moved slightly. After a long while, she finally said, “If the fire back then really wasn’t an accident… then all these years, Shen Zhijin…”
Hearing this name, Gu Tingfeng opened his eyes. His gaze was obscure and difficult to understand.
He was silent for a long time, and his voice was dry.
“In the end, he didn’t take good care of Yinyin and Tangtang.”
Gu Tinglan pursed his lips.
“But he also…”
Gu Tingfeng suddenly interrupted him, “Do you think that it’s us who are not willing to let him go?”
“He’s the one who won’t let himself go.”
Gu Tingyun was very satisfied with this meal.
He took one last look at the group photo on his phone and stood up to leave.
Ning Li and Lu Huaiyu stood up and prepared to send him off.
Gu Tingyun smiled and said, “There’s no need to send me off. I’ll be going straight to my big brother’s place.”
Ning Li and Lu Huaiyu sent him into the elevator. After seeing that he had entered it, they returned to their room.
“I didn’t expect Third Uncle Gu to be so easy to get along with.”
Ning Li said.
She had been a little worried that she would not be able to get along with him. After all, this person’s status was obvious.
However, after the meal today, Gu Tingyun had not put on any airs to show that he was the third master of the Gu family. He had been very approachable.
Lu Huaiyu glanced at her and could not help but laugh.
“Yeah, I didn’t expect that either.” To put it nicely, the third master of the Gu family was shrewd. To say it not so good terms, he was like a smiling tiger.
He had interacted with this person a few times in the past, and he was indeed an unpredictable person.
However, the third master of the Gu family today had been very different.
In short… It had indeed been beyond his expectations.
“The Gu family likes you very much,” he said. Ning Li paused for a moment and sighed.
“It’s not me that they like, it’s the fourth Miss Gu that they like.”
It was only because she was somewhat similar to the fourth Miss Gu that they were so partial to her. It was not hard to imagine how much they doted on the fourth Miss Gu in the past.
Lu Huaiyu looked into her eyes, his thin lips slightly raised as he ruffled her hair. “Ah Li, other than the fourth young Miss Gu, there is also a reason that belongs to you alone that they are willing to treat you this way.” “Our Ah Li is so lovable. Who wouldn’t like her?”
Old Madam Gu loved her daughter dearly. Perhaps because of the similarity, she would feel tender affection for Ning Li.
However, the other masters of the Gu family were not easy to get along with.
If they could treat Ning Li this way just because they were similar, then countless girls would have used this reason to get along with the Gu family over the years.
How could it be Ning Li’s turn?
Now that even they were like this, it proved that the person they liked was indeed Ning Li.
Ning Li looked at him in a daze, and then the corners of her lips curled up slightly.
“Lu Huaiyu, thank you.”
Lu Huaiyu raised his eyebrows, then bowed his head to come nearer to her.
He said with a low smile, “Ah Li, actually, there are many ways that you can use to thank me. I have always been very patient. I don’t mind you trying them out one by one.”
