The Little Brat’s Sweet And Sassy

Chapter 749 - Was Busy  

Chapter 749: Was Busy

Shen Li stared at his phone and spoke with difficulty.

“Second Brother…”

Lu Huaiyu had already dialed the number.

Old Master Lu seemed to be busy. After a while, he answered,”Huaiyu, what’s the matter?”

Thud…

The sound of a chess piece landing on the chessboard could clearly be heard.

Lu Huaiyu paused.

“Grandpa, it’s–”

“Hey! Mei Yanqing! You can’t have regrets when you place the chess piece! Why are you regretting your move again?” Old Master Lu’s energetic voice came from the other end of the phone.

Mei Yanqing was very impatient.

“My hand just slipped. What’s the problem?”

Old Master Lu almost wanted to flip the chessboard:

“Your hand slipped? Your hand slipped the first time. How many times has this already happened?”

Mei Yanqing’s voice was even louder than his.

“I’m eighty! My hands don’t work properly!”

This sentence was so shocking that even Shen Li could hear it clearly.

Her eyelids twitched.

Lu Huaiyu looked over with a faint smile, and she lowered her head silently.

As long as she could not hear it, she would not be embarrassed…

Old Master Lu choked, as if he had not expected Mei Yanqing to be so thick-skinned.

He asked in disbelief, “Mei Yanqing, I saw you draw for two hours straight yesterday!”

He had even been able to draw a line as thin as a strand of hair, and now he was saying that his hand was not working properly?!

Mei Yanqing scoffed.

“That’s called art! What do you know?”

Lu Huaiyu took his phone to the side, and Shen Li silently took half a step back.

She really did not really want to hear it.

Old Master Lu was furious, but he was no match for Mei Yanqing’s eloquence.

However, since that was his grandfather, Lu Huaiyu was kind enough to help him out.

“Grandfather.”

This voice finally pulled Old Master Lu back to his senses.

He grunted fiercely at Mei Yanqing.

“Wait until I’m done with Huaiyu’s call. We’re not done with this game of chess yet!”

Then, he started chatting with Lu Huaiyu.

“What’s wrong, Huaiyu?”

Lu Huaiyu smiled.

“Nothing much. I just have some good news to report to you– Ah Li’s final results just came out.”

Old Master Lu suddenly sat up straight.

“What?”

Mei Yanqing, who was sitting across from him, noticed his unusual behavior and raised his eyelids to look over.

Old Master Lu immediately coughed lightly and pretended to behave normally.

“Okay, go ahead.”

Lu Huaiyu looked at the little girl’s round hair and pinched her soft and smooth little face.

“She did very well in the exam. She got full marks in all thirteen subjects.”

Old Master Lu took a deep breath slowly and said in a deep voice, “Ah… I see… Okay, I’ve got it. I’m going back to my game now so I’ll hang up first.”

With that, he really ended the phone call. Then, he quickly got up, took his coat, and said to Mei Yanqing, “Well, Huaiyu has something for me to do. I have to go home quickly, so I’ll be leaving now!”

Mei Yanqing frowned as he looked at him.

“What’s the matter? Why are you in such a hurry?”

Old Master Lu waved his hand.

“It’s not a big deal. You don’t have to worry.”

Mei Yanqing pointed at the chessboard.

“So, you’re not playing anymore?”

Had he not said that he would settle the score after the phone call?

“Another day, another day!”

Old Master Lu did not even bat an eye as he hurriedly shouted.

“Qingyun? We’re going home!”

Fang Qingyun was a little surprised.

Didn’t Old Master Lu usually play chess with Old Master Mei for a long time? Why was he going back so early today?

However, seeing that Old Master Lu really seemed to be in a hurry, he did not question him further.

It was not until the car slowly drove away from Jinse Bay Villa that Fang Qingyun asked, “Old Master, you–”

“Hello? Ah Li? Your final results are out, right? I just heard from Huaiyu that you did very well in your exams!”

Old Master Lu had called Shen Li directly.

Fang Qingyun glanced in the rearview mirror. Old Master Lu was beaming away. Where was the anxious look on his face from before?

“What gift would Ah Li like? Hey, look, Grandpa is in the Capital now, so far away from you… Your Master? Oh, he just said that his hand was feeling a little uncomfortable, so I left. Right, right… Hey, what could possibly happen to him? You should choose your gift first–”

Fang Qingyun, “…”

Elsewhere, Mei Yanqing was sitting alone. He stared at the remnants of the game in front of him, lost in thought.

What was so urgent that Lu Qishan would leave without even finishing half a game of chess?

A few guesses flashed through his mind before he suddenly thought of something. He immediately picked his phone up from the side and called Shen Li.

The line was busy.

Mei Yanqing called Yu Pingchuan again.

“Pingchuan.”

“Master?”

“What’s going on with Ah Li today?”

Yu Pingchuan was stunned by this sentence.

“Nothing… right? What’s wrong?”

Mei Yanqing frowned.

She was with the Gu family over in Hong Kong City, so nothing should be going on. That was…

“What about with her school?”

Yu Pingchuan thought about it carefully.

“Oh right, it seems that Xijing University will be releasing their final results in the next two days. Ah Li should–”

Before he could finish his sentence, he heard Mei Yanqing curse angrily.

“Lu Qishan, that sly old thing!”

Shen Li finally ended her phone call with Old Master Lu, but Gu Siyang could not hold himself back any longer.

“Cousin, how do you feel about this car today?”

Shen Li nodded.

“It’s pretty good…”

“As long as you’re satisfied! So, let’s end this test drive for today, okay? Let’s go home!” Gu Siyang’s eyes were gleaming. “Mom said that she will personally cook today to help you celebrate!”

Liang Su’s cooking skills were very good, but it was very difficult for an average person to get her to do so.

Of course, this “average person” generally meant Gu Siyang.

Shen Li, “…”

It had only been a few minutes, yet this decision had already been made?

She hesitated and said, “I like the food cooked by First Aunt very much, but she seems to be quite busy recently, so–”

“Huh?”

Gu Siyang handed his phone over. On it was a photo that Gu Tingfeng had just sent.

“But they’re already choosing vegetables in the vegetable garden. They want me to ask you if there’s anything in particular that you want to eat.”

Gu Tingfeng’s family sometimes lived in the large family mansion, but they also had an independent villa on the outside. This small vegetable garden had been planted by them in their own yard.

Shen Li, “…”

Next came Mei Yanqing’s phone call. All she could do was hurriedly say, “Anything is fine. I’m not picky about food.”

As she said this, she picked up the phone.

“Master?”

Hearing this, Gu Siyang’s worried heart fell back into her stomach, and he hurriedly sent a message to his father.

Fortunately, both of these people were in the Capital!

“Dad! Mom! We’re going to win this round!”

Mei Yanqing’s voice sounded completely different from what he had heard on the phone with Lu Huaiyu just now. There was a hint of resentment amidst his calm tone of voice.

“Ah Li, your final results have come out. Why didn’t you tell Master?”

Shen Li held her forehead.

“I wanted to tell you…”

She had not even had the time yet!

Mei Yanqing sighed.

“Sigh, I’m already eighty. It’s normal that Ah Li can’t remember me for a moment…”

Shen Li decided to endure it.

“How’s your hand?”

Mei Yanqing suddenly paused.

Shen Li said concisely.

“I’m with Second Brother.”

Mei Yanqing was silent for a while.

“Oh, it’s pretty good.”

The call finally ended.

Gu Siyang pulled on Shen Li to leave.

“Cousin Sister, look, it’s almost noon. You haven’t been to our home on Mi Xing Road, have you? Let’s go have lunch!”

Lu Huaiyu raised his eyebrows.

Gu Siyang caught a glimpse of him out of the corner of his eye and said hesitantly, “Then… will Second Master be coming too?”

Shen Li thought about it.

“Then, let me call Dad again to see if he’s free.”

As she spoke, she dialed the number again.

After a moment, she was stunned. Why was the line busy?
