Chapter 761 - This Year and the Year After Next
Old Master Lu raised his phone as Shen Li had instructed. Lu Huaiyu turned around to paste the Spring Festival couplets.
“Second Brother, go a little higher. Okay, okay, go a little to the left…”
Shen Li held her phone as she looked at it seriously.
Gu Siqi and Gu Sicheng exchanged looks with each other. Gu Sicheng raised the Spring Festival couplets in his hand:
“Cousin, we haven’t finished putting up the couplets yet…”
Shen Li looked up.
She gave Gu Siyang a look– ‘Go help.’
However, Gu Siyang was unwilling to do it.
The Spring Festival couplets that she had put up had been done perfectly. How could they stop halfway?
“It’s okay, Siqi, Sicheng. Let’s wait for your cousin first. We’ll continue after she finishes with the video call.”
The two brothers nodded obediently.
“Who is Ah Li video calling?”
A gentle voice came from behind.
Shen Li turned around and saw Old Master Gu and Old Madam Gu walking over.
“Grandpa, Grandma, I’m on a video call with Grandpa Lu.”
Old Master Gu’s gaze fell on her phone.
Gu Siyang deliberately added, “Grandpa, Cousin is helping them post the Spring Festival couplets!”
Post the Spring Festival couplets?
Was the Lu family so short of people that they had to call on someone who was thousands of miles away?
Old Master Gu snorted.
Now he finally knew how that old thing, Lu Qishan, had taught his grandson!
Old Madam Gu gently patted his hand and smiled.
“It’s been a while since Ah Li and Huaiyu have seen each other.”
Old Master Gu narrowed his eyes.
“Ah Li spent the New Year at the Lu family’s home last year.”
When Old Master Lu heard this, he could also hear the dissatisfaction in his words.
Thus, he quickly responded.
“Eh? In-laws? In-laws! I think this is pretty good! Look, Ah Li was at our house last year, this year she’s at your house, then next year she will be at our house again–”
Old Master Gu finally could not help but interrupt him.
“What kind of dream are you having?”
Old Master Lu coughed.
“Then… Then, the year after next would be fine too…”
Ah Li would be twenty the year after next!
Wouldn’t the engagement and marriage already have been arranged by then?
However, Old Master Gu did not understand what he meant, so he did not reply.
He was afraid that once he opened his mouth, he would not be able to stop himself from cursing him.
Shen Li coughed lightly.
“Grandpa Lu, your phone is crooked.”
Her voice finally woke Old Master Lu up from his daydream.
“Huh? Oh, okay, okay! Ah Li, what do you think?”
After a bit of struggle, it was finally pasted properly.
“Grandpa Lu, Second Brother, Happy New Year’s Eve.”
After saying this, Shen Li finally ended the video call.
Gu Sicheng hurriedly called out to her.
Shen Li went over to help supervise the two brothers. This time, it was Gu Sicheng who stepped on to the stool.
“Sicheng, be careful.”
As Shen Li spoke, she looked at Gu Siyang.
This time, Gu Siyang was cooperative. He smiled and went forward to help hold the stool.
“Tsk, nowadays, it isn’t easy to be a brother, is it?”
He had to listen to his cousin sister and help hold the stool for his cousin brother.
Old Madam Gu noticed that Old Master Gu still seemed to be brooding over what had happened earlier. She could not help but smile and give him some gentle advice.
“Brother Ci, Ah Li was only on a video call to help them put up a Spring Festival couplet. After all, they are spending the Spring Festival together in their own home. Why are you still jealous?”
Old Master Gu’s lips twitched.
“In what way am I jealous? I just feel that Lu Qishan has too much time on his hands!”
He had even approached Ah Li for help just to put up a Spring Festival couplet!
Old Madam Gu smiled but did not say anything.
Old Master Gu put his hands behind his back and pondered for a while.
“I’m going to make a call.”
Then, he walked to the living room and made a call. The other side quickly picked up.
Old Master Gu said calmly,
Ten minutes later, a call was made to Old Master Lu’s cell phone.
He was holding a window flower in one hand.
“Huaiyu, hurry up and paste this. After you finish, I want to take a picture for Ah Li to see.”
Lu Huaiyu, “…”
Old Master Lu came forward and urged him.
“Just follow the position that she posted it in last year. Don’t paste it crooked.”
Lu Huaiyu rubbed the space between his eyebrows.
After handing over the window decorations, Old Master Lu looked at his phone and muttered.
“Why is Mei Yanqing suddenly calling at this time…”
As he spoke, he pressed the reply button.
There was no sound on the other end.
Old Master Lu took the phone away and looked at it. It was a call! Why was there no sound?
He put the phone close to his ear again.
A sneer suddenly came from the other end.
Old Master Lu almost dropped his phone. “Mei Yanqing! What are you doing?”
He was so shocked!
Mei Yanqing sounded as if he was gnashing his teeth together.
“I heard that you’re already planning for Ah Li to spend the New Year at your house next year?”
Old Master Lu was instantly silenced. At the same time, he silently cursed Old Master Gu for not being compassionate. How could he expose the matter so quickly?!
“Cough, it’s nothing.” Old Master Lu cleared his throat and chuckled. “Isn’t this matter still undecided? We’re still discussing it.”
Still discussing it?
Mei Yanqing was so angry that he laughed.
“No matter how we arrange it, do you really think it will be your Lu family’s turn next year?!”
What was he thinking!
Old Master Lu felt that this possibility was indeed very small.
He pondered for a moment and finally endured the pain.
“The year after next! It can be the year after next then!”
“Not even the year after next? Do you know how old Huaiyu will be the year after next? He’ll be 24 by then! If he still can’t bring his wife– I mean, bring his girlfriend home for the New Year, where will I put my old face?!”
Lu Huayu, who had just pasted the flowers on the window, was speechless.
He then walked to the side and called Lu Yuxiao.
Lu Yuxiao would be going home for the New Year this year and would arrive in the Capital at night. In fact, he was already on his way.
As expected, he answered the call very quickly. A young, cold, and deep voice was heard.
Lu Huaiyu smiled and said, “Brother, Grandpa was scolding you just now.”
