Chapter 653 Talent in Physics and Art
Mei Yan chuckled.
“There’s no need to go through so much trouble. When I get out of the hospital, I’ll have plenty of time to spar with him.”
Lu Huaiyu paused for a moment, his smile unchanged.
“Grandfather has always said that playing chess with you is what he enjoys doing the most. I think he would be very happy if he heard what your plan was.”
Just then, Ning Li walked in.
Her gaze swept over the few of them.
“Master, Second Brother, what are you talking about?”
Lu Huaiyu smiled. “I was talking about chess with Elder Mei.”
Ning Li understood and did not ask any more questions. She then said to Mei Yanqing, “Master, the Doctor said that it’d be better for you to remain under observation for a few more days.”
The hope that had just appeared on Mei Yanqing’s face was instantly extinguished.
“A few more days?”
Ning Li walked over and helped him adjust his pillow.
“Yes, so you need to persevere a little longer. I’ll come back to pick you up in a few days.”
The tone of her voice brooked no argument.
Mei Yanqing opened his mouth.
“… You really can’t persuade them otherwise?”
Ning Li replied with a “hmm”.
“You’ve already endured it for so long. What’s the difference if it’s for a few more days?”
Yu Pingchuan also echoed.
“That’s right, Master. The doctor and Ah Li are also doing this for your health, aren’t they?”
When Mei Yanqing heard what Ning Li said, he knew that he would definitely not be able to leave the hospital today.
He sat on the hospital bed without speaking.
Ning Li said, “Would you like me to stay and chat with you?”
Mei Yanqing wanted to say “Yes”, but Yu Pingchuan suddenly spoke up.
“Oh right, Ah Li, your class schedule today seems to be quite full, right?”
Mei Yanqing swallowed back his words.
Ning Li smiled.
“These are all professional classes at the Institute of Physics. The teachers are quite lenient towards me, so I just need to take a leave of absence.”
“That won’t do.”
How could Mei Yanqing bear to let her give up her class time to accompany him?
He waved his hand.
“Just go and do what you need to do!” Ning Li was skeptical.
“Didn’t you say earlier that you’re feeling very bored here?”
Mei Yanqing waved his hand.
“It’s fine! Since Ah Li has said so, then I’ll just leave in a few days’ time! You don’t have to worry about Master. Master can persevere for a little while longer!”
Hearing what he said, Ning Li felt much more at ease.
She sat in the ward for a while longer before preparing to leave.
Before she left, she carefully repeated the doctor’s advice.
“So, you must take good care of yourself for the next few days.”
Mei Yanqing nodded repeatedly. “Alright, I’ll listen to Ah Li!”
Lu Huaiyu was standing next to Ning Li.
When Mei Yanqing looked up, their eyes met.
Lu Huaiyu smiled.
“Ah Li, I also believe that Elder Mei will follow the Doctor’s advice and take good care of his body for the next few days. Don’t worry.”
Mei Yanqinq said clearly, “That’s right. It’s like what Huaiyu just said.”
Ning Li’s gaze shifted between the two of them. She did not know what they had been talking about earlier, but her master’s attitude had changed so quickly…
Lu Huaiyu did not seem to notice anything.
“Then should we go back now?”
Ning Li collected her thoughts. “Okay.”
After leaving the First Affiliated Hospital, Lu Huaiyu sent Ning Li back to school. As he watched her figure gradually disappear from his sight, he picked up his phone.
He smiled and said, “I have something to tell
Old Master Lu rarely received a call from his grandson at this time of day, so he was a little curious.
“What is it?”
Lu Huaiyu spoke slowly and methodically.
“Ah Li is Teacher Yu’s junior sister. In other words, she is Elder Mei’s last disciple.”
Old Master Lu was shocked. “What?!”
All he had known was that Ning Li and Yu Pingchuan were close, but he had never thought that they would have such a relationship!
Lu Huaiyu said gently, “Ah Li has been under Elder Mei’s tutelage since three years ago. Elder Mei has more or less watched her grow up. Today, I accompanied Ah Li to visit Elder Mei at the First Affiliated Hospital. Elder Mei treats Ah Li as if she were his junior, and they are very close.”
Old Master Lu was immediately energized.
“So, Mei Yanqing is still in the hospital?”
Lu Huaiyu looked out of the window.
“Yes. It’s just that Elder Mei feels that it’s too boring to stay there…”
Old Master Lu’s hurried footsteps could be heard over the phone.
“Chunlan, where’s my coat? I’m going to the First Affiliated Hospital!”
Lu Huaiyu paused.
“Grandpa, are you heading to the First Affiliated Hospital right now?”
Old Master Lu was full of energy.
Mei Yanqing was actually Ning Li’s master!
Would that not make him a proper in-law?
If he did not try to pull some strings now, how long would he have to wait?
“Huaiyu, I’m a little busy right now. I’ll hang up first!”
With that, Old Master Lu hung up the phone without waiting for Lu Huaiyu’s reply. He hurriedly packed his things up and rushed to the First Affiliated Hospital.
Lu Huaiyu took his phone and called Yi Bin again.
“Please send a new chess set to the First Affiliated Hospital for me.”
In the afternoon, Ning Li went to class as usual. She found that many extra people had come to attend the class. Many people had also gathered outside the classroom to catch a glimpse of her.
She quickly realized that these people had come from the Xijing Art School.
The incident at a gallery had spread completely in just a few hours.
Ning Li was Tree’s Shadow!
At the same time, she was also Mei Yanqing’s youngest closed-door disciple! The revelation of this identity had shocked countless people.
Two years ago, Tree’s Shadow had begun to rise to fame in the art world and now had countless fans. Each new work that she released would definitely fetch an increasingly higher price.
It was a pity that the outside world did not know much about this person.
Who would have guessed that it was actually Ning Li!
Other people did not mention it, but the West Capital Fine Arts Academy was the first to be unable to sit still.
Many of the students had specially come here, some of them had even asked for an autograph.
By the time Ning Li finally finished dealing with these things, it was already seven o’clock in the evening.
She had a simple meal and went to the laboratory
Just as she walked in, Tang Yi rushed over with a laptop in his arms. He pointed at a painting on the screen and asked excitedly, “Junior sister, they all said that you’re Tree’s Shadow. This painting was painted by you, wasn’t it?”
Ning Li could only nod.
Tang Yi looked at the screen again and could not help but say, “This is too awesome… We’re both humans, but why is the gap between us so
He did not know much about the fashion and entertainment industry, but he happened to be interested in painting and would occasionally go to art exhibitions. Therefore, he had been even more shocked by the fact that Ning Li was Tree’s Shadow. What’s more, she was the disciple of Mei Yanqing.
Ning Li could not help but laugh. Just as she was about to speak, a familiar sound of footsteps suddenly came from the corridor.
Shen Zhijin had just arrived at the door of the laboratory when he heard Tang Yi’s voice.
“How is it possible that there’s such a person like Little Junior Sister who is talented both in physics and in art? Little Junior Sister, you’re… amazing!”
