The Little Brat’s Sweet And Sassy

Chapter 672 - Waiting

Chapter 672 Waiting

Ning Li suddenly felt a lump in her throat.

She lowered her eyes, and her breathing seemed to go quiet for a moment.

Then, she raised her other hand and wiped away Old Madam Gu’s tears.

The hot, wet heat almost melted the scar on her heart.

Gu Tingfeng took the initiative to step forward and said, “Mother, the appraisal has been done. Let’s just wait for the results to be released tomorrow. Let’s take the Tangtang… take Ah Li home first?”

His words finally reminded everyone present.

Old Madam Gu finally came back to her senses and nodded repeatedly.

“Yes, yes, let’s go back first. Let’s go back first.”

Gu Tingfeng looked at Ning Li and said, “Ah Li, we have prepared a room at Jinshui No. 1 Courtyard for you. The car is outside. Let’s go now.”

Ning Li’s lips moved slightly. Before she could say anything, she suddenly heard Shen Zhijin speak up beside her.

His tone was flat, but his voice was clear and determined.

“She will go back with me today.”

Ning Li turned her head and looked at Shen Zhijin.

The expression on his handsome and clean face was as calm as ever. However, under that calmness, there seemed to be endless undercurrents surging.

There was a stubbornness in the tone of his voice like never before.

As far as Ning Li could remember, Shen Zhijin had always maintained a proud and aloof demeanor.

Most of the time, he did not seem to care about anything, and nothing could cause him to become too emotional.

As a result, this often made him look like someone who was indifferent.

This was especially true when he faced the Gu family. With them, he seemed to have put away all his temper and sharp edges.

However, at this time, he had finally stopped giving in and compromising, revealing the pride and sharpness buried deep in his bones.

Gu Tingfeng frowned.

“Shen Zhijin, what are you talking about?”

Shen Zhijin’s gaze was cold.

“I said, she has to go home with me today.”

There was still one more night before the results would come out tomorrow.

He had to guard her without leaving her side.

Some mistakes had been made once, and the price that had been paid was already painful enough.

He had spent half of his life trying to atone for that one mistake.

Now, he would never let it go.

Sensing his determination, Gu Tingfeng frowned even more.

No one spoke, and the atmosphere suddenly became tense.

It was as if there was an invisible string between Shen Zhijin and the Gu family.

No one was willing to let go.

Lu Huaiyu’s gaze swept across everyone who was present before he moved to Ning Li’s side.

“Ah Li.”

He called her name, his voice low and gentle, “Where would you like to go back to?”

It did not matter who won this battle between the Gu family and Shen Zhijin.

To him, only she was the most important thing

Her will was more important than anything else.

His voice finally reminded everyone present.

Old Madam Gu gently patted Ning Li’s hand and said, “Yes, yes. Let’s listen to Ah Li. Ah Li can go wherever she wants to go, okay?”

Ning Li raised her eyes and glanced at Lu Huaiyu.

Lu Huaiyu said gently, “I just spoke to Elder Mei on the phone. He said that if you want to go over, he can wait for you at any time.”

Elder Mei and the others had originally wanted to come over. However, they had worried that there would be too many people, which would unnecessarily add to the trouble and pressure on her, so they held themselves back and waited at Jinse Bay.

Ning Li was silent for a moment. “I would like to return to the Shuiyuan Shijia.”

Only a few hours had passed since the time Shen Zhijin had approached her about this matter that afternoon.

However, to her, it felt as if a lifetime had passed.

Countless images flashed back and forth in her mind, almost giving her a splitting headache.

Before the results came out, she did not know where she should go.

She was not even sure who she was.

Hearing her answer, everyone was stunned.

Lu Huaiyu said, “Okay.”

After a long while, Old Master Gu said, “Then, let’s go back to Shuiyuan Shijia first and let Ah Li have a good rest.”

He let out a sigh of relief. No matter how much the other members of the Gu family disagreed, they could not refute him.

Shen Zhijin looked at Ning Li.

He could confront the Gu family, but he could not say no to her.

At this moment, all his perseverance could not beat a single “I want to” from her.

His Adam’s apple rolled, and his voice was slightly hoarse as he spoke.

“Okay.”

The deadlock was broken. There was finally a unified answer to the question of where to stay tonight.

The group of people walked out of the entrance of the identification center.

Looking at the cars lined up in a row in the courtyard, Ning Li pursed her lips slightly.

She had come with Shen Zhijin, and Lu Huaiyu had arrived shortly after.

After that the Gu family had arrived…

These cars…

None of them seemed suitable for her to follow.

The others looked over, obviously waiting for her to make a choice.

After a moment, she suddenly turned her head and shouted to the side.

“Gu Siyang.”

Gu Siyang was startled when he was suddenly called, and he subconsciously answered, “Hey!”

“Lend me your car for a while.”

“Huh? Oh, oh! Okay, okay!”

Gu Siyang fumbled for his car keys and hurriedly handed them over.

The moment he handed the car keys to Ning Li, Gu Siyang instantly felt that all the gazes around her were focused on him.

The corners of his eyes twitched.

The pressure was too great… The death stare from his old father especially made him feel as if there was a knife at his back.

His strong desire to survive forced him to speak. “Ning Li, shall I go with you?” Ning Li looked at him indifferently.

“Please lend me the car for a day. I’ll drive myself back.”

Gu Siyang quickly said, “Hey! Okay! You can drive it for as long as you want!”

Ning Li thanked him and walked towards the supercar that was parked at the very end.

She unlocked it, got into the car, and fastened her seatbelt.

Almost at the same time, Lu Huaiyu returned to his black Bentley.

Shen Zhijin also got into his car.

Old Master Gu said, “Let’s send Ah Li back.”

After he said that, everyone from the Gu family got into their cars.

The red supercar slowly drove out. After that, the long line of luxury cars followed closely behind.

It was already evening and the sun was setting, dyeing the horizon a warm orange.

The cold wind blew.

However, Ning Li did not feel cold. Instead, she felt that she would be more awake this way.

She felt as if she had thought of so many things, and it was also as if she had thought of nothing at all.

On both sides of the road, the street lamps were lit.

Many passers-by looked over, unable to hide the shock on their faces.

In the Capital, luxury cars were not rare.

However, there were few that were of such high quality, especially since so many of them had appeared all at once.

All the cars followed closely behind the red supercar, maintaining a distance that was neither too far nor too close.

Half an hour later, Ning Li arrived at Shuiyuan Shijia.

This was probably the first time the security guard had seen such an astonishing lineup of luxury cars. He did not ask any questions but immediately let them pass.

Ning Li parked the car downstairs and got out of the car to say goodbye to each of them.

“Old Master Gu, Old Madam Gu, you’ve been on the road all day. Please go back and rest early.”

Then it was Gu Tingfeng and the others.

Finally, it was Shen Zhijin.

Ning Li stood outside the car window and looked at Shen Zhijin quietly for a moment.

“Teacher Shen, goodbye.”

Shen Zhijin replied with a “Hmm”.

Ning Li then turned around and went upstairs.

She entered the elevator alone and went back to the ninth floor. She opened the door and entered the house.

Click.

The door was locked from the inside.

She closed her eyes and leaned against the door for a while.

After some time, she finally opened her eyes and walked towards the living room.

She was about to close the curtains when she accidentally glanced downstairs. Suddenly, her gaze froze.

All the cars were still parked downstairs and waiting in silence.
