Chapter 751 - No Need to Disturb Them
Gu Siyang had stepped on the accelerator too fast and too fiercely. With a turn of the steering wheel, Shen Li’s body involuntarily fell to the side.
Lu Huaiyu’s hands were quick. He grabbed her shoulders and held her in his arms.
He gave Shen Li a questioning look but Shen Li replied with a shake of her head.
Then, she said to Shen Zhijin who was on the other end of the phone, “Dad, I’ll hang up first.”
Then, she hung up.
Lu Huaiyu’s heart relaxed a little. Then, he looked up at Gu Siyang with narrowed eyes.
Gu Siyang felt the gaze of death from the back row and his whole body immediately went numb. He hurriedly asked,”Cousin Sister, are you okay?”
Shen Li then said, “I’m fine.”
She was fastening her seatbelt.
“But why are you driving so fast all of a sudden?” Shen Li looked out of the window. This was a one-way street, and there weren’t many cars on the road. “Are you worried that uncle and the others are anxiously waiting for us?”
As she spoke, she looked at the time and saw that they were not late.
Gu Siyang said pitifully, “Huh? Oh, I just… I just thought that it would be good for us to go there as soon as possible…”
Lu Huaiyu said, “Drive slowly.”
Gu Siyang answered earnestly, “Oh.”
He glanced at Lu Huaiyu through the rearview mirror and saw that he was still holding his cell phone. He was now filled with regret.
He had been careless!
If he had known earlier, he would not have been so impatient!
Now, his uncle must have heard it!
Gu Tinglan had indeed heard it.
He summarized the few sentences and said slowly, “Are you guys going to my big brother’s house for lunch?”
Lu Huaiyu held Shen Li’s hand and glanced at Gu Siyang before he lazily answered,”Yes.”
Gu Tinglan was silent for a moment.
“Alright, I got it.”
He hung up the phone.
Lu Huaiyu put away his phone.
Seeing this, what other guess could Gu Siyang make?
Now that his Little Uncle had found out about this, he was sure to go there too!
He hesitated for a long time. Should he call his parents again?
Forget it, forget it. Anyway, if it was only his youngest uncle alone, he would not take up much space. They could just add a chair and a pair of chopsticks, right?
He ran his hand over his hair and gripped the steering wheel tightly– In any case, it was their house that he was going to today!
The Longchamp Racetrack was in the distant suburbs, which was quite far from Mi Xing Road. Even if Gu Siyang was very familiar with the road conditions in Hong Kong city, he would still need to drive forty minutes long.
Shen Li nestled one hand in the palm of Lu Huaiyu’s hand while she used the other hand to flip through her phone.
Now that the final results were out, and she could have dinner with her father and the others, she was indeed in a good mood.
Oh right, she had not told her grandparents about this yet.
The continuous calls earlier had disturbed her so much that she had not even thought about it yet.
Hence, she made a call to the Gu family mansion again.
The person who answered the call was Qi Yang. He then passed the phone to Old Madam Gu.
Old Madam Gu’s voice sounded even gentler on the phone.
“Ah Li, when are you coming back?”
“Grandma, I’m not going back this afternoon.”
“You’re not coming back?”
Old Madam Gu looked into the courtyard.
Gu Tingchuan had just arrived and was talking to Old Master Gu about something.
Shen Li nodded.
“I’m going to Mi Xing Road with my cousin now.”
Old Madam Gu immediately understood.
“Are you going to your uncle’s house for lunch?”
“That’s good. Ever since you came to Hong Kong City, you’ve been staying at the mansion. You haven’t gone to visit them yet,” Old Madam Gu said with a smile.
Shen Li said, “There’s one more thing. My results came out today. I’ll send you and Grandpa a screenshot of the results later.”
Old Madam Gu seemed to have guessed something. She pursed her lips and smiled.
Her temper was really…
After hanging up the phone, Old Madam Gu opened the image of the report card sent by Shen Li. Her fingers stroked it carefully, as she looked at it cherishingly.
Gu Siqi was the first to run in.
Old Madam Gu looked up and said, “Your cousin has gone to your eldest uncle’s house for lunch. She won’t be back for lunch.”
Gu Siqi let out an “Ah” and immediately looked disappointed. When Gu Sicheng, who had followed Yun Jingrou into the house, heard this, he could not help but ask, “Grandma, why did cousin go to First Uncle’s house for lunch today?”
She had never been to their home in Hong Kong City before!
His voice was clear and crisp, so it was also heard by Old Master Gu and Gu Tingchuan.
The father and son simultaneously went silent for a moment.
Old Master Gu stood up and walked over as Gu Tingchuan followed closely behind.
“Ah Qing, what’s going on?”
Old Madam Gu smiled and said, “Ah Li’s final results are out, and she got full marks in all thirteen subjects. Tingfeng and the others invited her over for dinner, supposedly to help Ah Li celebrate.”
Hearing the first half of the sentence, a satisfied smile appeared on Old Master Gu’s face. However, upon hearing the second half of the sentence, his smile completely faded.
“Ah Li did so well in her exams. She should have come home to celebrate. Why did she go to our eldest son’s house?”
Gu Tingchuan frowned even more.
Why had his eldest brother received the news faster than his parents’?
Old Madam Gu smiled gently.
“Didn’t she just go out with Siyang? It sounds like her results only just came out.”
Right, apparently Gu Siyang had taken her to see a car today.
Gu Tingchuan secretly sneered. He had said he was going to see a car, but he had actually been waiting for an opportunity!
Old Master Gu was still dissatisfied but did not say anything.
Gu Sicheng said in a low voice, “Then we really won’t be able to see our cousin today…”
Gu Tingchuan suddenly said, “Jingrou, I remember that Siqi and Sicheng still have a fencing class to attend. Why don’t we send them over first?”
Yun Jingrou looked at him speechlessly.
Who had a fencing class in the middle of the day?
Gu Siqi and Sicheng also looked over at the same time.
Gu Sicheng was at a loss. “Dad, isn’t our fencing class on–”
Gu Siqi immediately said, “Dad, Mom, the coach said that he doesn’t like people to be late. Shall we go then?”
As he said this, he pulled the still confused Gu Sicheng out in a hurry.
Old Master Gu raised his eyes.
“What? Not only did they change their fencing lessons from tomorrow to today, but they also changed the venue to Mi Xing Road?”
There was a moment of silence in the room.
Old Master Gu said, “Qi Yang, prepare the car. We’re going to Mi Xing Road.”
Ten minutes later, two cars drove out of the Gu family mansion.
Gu Sicheng sat in the car and counted with his hands.
“Dad, do you want to tell Third Uncle and Youngest Uncle?”
It seemed that the almost all of the family members would be gathering.
Gu Tingchuan paused and said, “Your third uncle and youngest uncle have been very busy recently, so there’s no need to bother them with such trivial matters.”
Gu Sicheng nodded obediently.
