The Little Brat’s Sweet And Sassy

Chapter 726 - The True Daughter of the Gu Family... Shen Li  

Chapter 726: The True Daughter of the Gu Family… Shen Li

At the sound of the voice, everyone subconsciously turned their gazes towards the door.

Old Master Gu was dressed in a tang suit. He had white hair, yet he looked hale and hearty.

That earlier sentence had come from his mouth.

He looked out towards the banquet hall. He had an intense gaze that seemed to have some deeper meaning. Even such a calm and simple sentence from his mouth seemed to carry a heavy weight. It carried absolute dignity and strength which pressed down on everyone’s shoulders!

Everyone could not help but hold their breath, as if even the air had frozen.

His gaze lingered on Yan Fei for an extra second.

In just one second, it instantly made her heart tremble, and break out in a cold sweat with a “swoosh”!

Old Master Gu had been decisive in his ruthlessness all his life, so how could she withstand his aura?

Her face instantly turned pale.

However, she soon noticed something and was shocked.

Old Madam Gu was standing beside Old Master Gu while Gu Tingfeng and the other members of the Gu family were behind him.

All the members of the Gu family had arrived.

However, that was not the most important thing. The most important thing was…

There was a young girl standing beside Old Madam Gu!

At that moment, countless pairs of eyes in the banquet hall were all looking in this direction.

Everyone’s attention was involuntarily attracted by that particular young girl.

She wore a black embroidered qipao, with a slender waist that was barely a handful.

Her black hair had been tied up, which showed off her slender swan-like neck. The pearl clasp at the collar flickered with a faint luster.

The side of the qipao stretched all the way up to her thighs. As she walked, most of her slender jade-like legs were hidden, revealing only a hint of jade-white.

The qipao clung closely to her body, and spread out into perfect and mesmerizing lines. The rich color made her skin look even more delicate and fair, which dazzled everyone’s mind.

She wore no accessories on her whole body, except for a jade bracelet on her snow-like wrist.

She raised her eyes and looked over. Her peach-blossom eyes were clear and bright, and there seemed to be tiny stars floating in the depths of her eyes.

Everyone could not help but hold their breaths, and their minds were swayed by this stunning beauty that had suddenly entered.

It turned out that even though she was a young girl, she could still be covered in amorous feelings, as she had the perfect blend of purity and charm.

There was no need for any words. Just by standing there, she had already surpassed any scene on this earth.

Lu Huaiyu had already turned around to look when he heard Old Master Gu speak.

The moment Shen Li’s figure had appeared in front of them, his eyes had darkened instantly. They were like a bottomless sea, filled with a whirlpool of temptation and danger.

It was as if sporadic flames were falling into the bottom of his heart until even his chest was burning hot. It spread crazily around his body almost uncontrollably, and even his fingertips were burning hot.

The hidden greed and desire seemed to pierce through the barrier at this moment, clamoring both silently but loudly at the same time.

As if sensing his burning gaze that seemed to have been quenched, Shen Li raised her eyes and looked over.

Their eyes met.

Lu Huaiyu stared at her, his thin lips slowly raising into an arc.

Then, he raised his hand, as if seemingly unable to endure the heat, and his slender fingers pulled at his tie.

However, the fire at the top of his heart did not seem to want to dissipate. Instead, it burned even more fiercely.

He looked at her, the tip of his tongue pressed against the roof of his mouth, exhaled lightly, and smiled.

This was not an acknowledgment of kinship.

This was a seduction of his soul.

Tonight, the Gu family was holding a banquet, and all the celebrities had gathered there.

The females of each family were competing with each other, with their own beauty.

However, the moment Shen Li had appeared, it seemed as if she had instantly snatched away all the colors, causing everyone present to appear dull.

She was indeed the brightest star tonight.

After the silence, someone finally came back to their senses.

“That’s… Ning Li?!”

“It’s her. I saw her once at the horse races last year. I can’t possibly be wrong.”

“This… I’ve only heard of her beauty before, but I never thought she’d be so stunning…”

Many people looked at her, their faces still filled with amazement.

However, some people also noticed something more crucial.

“Wait, why is she standing next to Old Madam Gu? Is she… here with the Gu family?”

The moment these words came out, it hit them like a bolt of lightning, which caused everyone to be shocked to the spot.

That’s right!

Rather than saying that she was accompanying Old Madam Gu, it seemed more appropriate to say that the Gu family was accompanying her!

Someone said, “… Just now, what did Old Master Gu mean by that sentence?”

His voice had been so full of power. Everyone present had surely heard it clearly!

“Why do we need outsiders to welcome Tangtang home on behalf of the Gu family?”

Yes, everyone knew that the young miss of the Gu family, Tangtang, had returned.

When Old Master Gu said that, it had to have been in response to Yan Fei’s previous sentence.

What had she said at that time?

Oh yes, she had said that Miss Ning rarely came to Hong Kong City as a guest, and everyone welcomed her.

— Miss Ning.

— Tangtang returns home.

Yan Fei suddenly realized something, and her mind went blank with a bang!

She widened her eyes in disbelief as she looked at the slender figure surrounded by the members of the Gu family. She seemed to hear roaring in her ears.

Old Madam Gu gently patted Shen Li’s hand. She still had a gentle smile on her face as she said, “Brother Ci, it’s a good thing that Tangtang is back. Thus, it’s always good to have another person to welcome her back as well, isn’t it?”

As she spoke, her gaze fell on Yan Fei and Xu Yini. Her voice was gentle as she said, “Moreover, Second Miss Yan and Miss Xu are old acquaintances of Tangtang. It’s wonderful that everyone could come together to celebrate Tangtang’s return today.”

The hall was so quiet that one could even hear a pin drop.

This time, it was not only Yan Fei and Xu Yini, but everyone present was now shocked by the huge amount of information contained in these words and almost lost their rationality!

Ning Li!

It was actually Ning Li!

The person that the Gu family had made so much fuss over and had so actively welcomed Tang Tang back home was actually Ning Li! ?

In the past few days, there had been countless rumors about the beloved young miss of the Gu family.

Countless people had tried to guess her identity, and countless people had tried to find out her background, but to no avail.

Everyone had been waiting for tonight, for when the Gu family was to bring her here, to officially acknowledge her as their relative, and for the pearl to be returned to their family.

However, who would have thought that Tangtang… was Ning Li?!

Had she not been born in the city?

Was she not poor and lowly?

Had she not been covered in mud, a lowly and bitter person?

How could… How could she have become the high and mighty young miss of the Gu family in the blink of an eye?!

Just then, someone in the crowd sucked in a breath of cold air, unable to conceal their shock as they spoke.

“The bracelet on her hand… belongs to Old Madam Gu!”

Upon hearing this, many people could not help but look at Shen Li’s wrist. Because they were so shocked, they became numb instead.

Yes, that was indeed Old Madam Gu’s bracelet.

And now, it was on Shen Li’s hand.

All doubts had now been shattered. This was the symbol of her identity!

No… or rather, the Gu family that surrounded her was the proof that was the most irrefutable!

When he heard Old Madam Gu’s words, Old Master Gu seemed to agree that it made sense. He turned to look at Shen Li.

“Tangtang, what do you think?”

The corners of Shen Li’s lips curled up slightly. She smiled courteously.

“Naturally, I’m very happy when guests come to our house.”

“Second Miss Yan, Miss Xu, welcome.”
