Chapter 859 - Request
The expression on Liang Su’s face froze for a moment.
So, she did not want to apply for membership in the Bai City Fashion Association, just because it was a lifetime commitment and she found it to be very troublesome?
However, it was precisely this lifetime commitment that was the most attractive part of it!
Once successfully selected, she would always stand at the top of the ecological chain of the fashion industry, with a very high position and a very influential voice.
Countless brands competed for the position. Whoever attained it would have easy access to the best resources.
Who would not want this? Who would not be tempted?
However, in Shen Li’s eyes, all of this would just be a burden?!
After a long while, Liang Su softly muttered,”It’s a good thing that no one else heard this…”
If not, they might really be angered.
It was rare for Shen Li to see this kind of reaction from her, so she could not help but laugh.
Liang Su glared at her.
“How can you still laugh? If someone else had your talent, they wouldn’t be able to hold themselves back from applying! Only you would find it troublesome.”
“It is troublesome.
Shen Li said, “Once you’re committed to it, who knows how many things you’ll have to deal with every day.”
Liang Su finally understood what she was thinking, so she did not try to persuade her anymore.
“Actually, I’m asking on behalf of Mr. Ronai.”
Shen Li was stunned.
Liang Su said, “Yes.”
“After the show this morning, Mr. Ronai and I chatted for a while and he brought this up. He wanted to ask what your intentions were.”
Now it was clear that Shen Li had no intentions at all.
What Ronai meant was that he regarded Shen Li highly and that if she applied, he would vote in her favor.
This was already clear.
That was why Liang Su had been so positive about this matter.
Who would have thought that Shen Li would have such an attitude about it?
Shen Li took a sip of her coffee. The strong bitter fragrance spread between her lips and teeth.
She narrowed her eyes in satisfaction. Her peach blossom eyes were curved, like a lazy and satisfied cat.
“Oh, then please help me to explain it to Mr. Ronai.”
Liang Su could not help but laugh when she saw her like this, and she gently tapped her forehead.
“You’re being the bad guy by making your aunt do this.”
Shen Li smiled at her.
“Thank you, Aunt!”
Liang Su was really not angry with her. She was happy just to see that she was happy.
“By the way, do you have any plans for tomorrow?”
The women’s fashion show for G&S had been held on the first day of Fashion Week, while the menswear show had been scheduled to be held on the first day of the second week.
Shen Li would be attending that event.
This was also the reason why she would be staying here for a week.
Apart from this show, she could choose whether or not to attend the fashion shows by the other brands.
Therefore, she had quite a lot of freedom in terms of time.
Shen Li said, “I have two shows to watch tomorrow morning. Then, I plan to visit Dad’s residence in Bai City in the afternoon.”
This was also one of the most important reasons she came to Bai City this time.
Liang Su was momentarily stunned, but then, the corners of her lips curved into a gentle smile.
Liang Su accompanied Shen Li to have afternoon tea before leaving.
She was a designer of high-quality jewelry. This time, she had come to Bai City to work with several luxury brands, so her schedule was quite full.
Shen Li returned to the 36th floor of the hotel.
She wanted to go straight to her room, but when her eyes fell on the door next door, she stopped in her tracks.
At this time, Lu Huaiyu should be sleeping, right?
She thought of yesterday’s situation and pursed her lips slightly.
She raised her hand to ring the doorbell but ultimately decided not to ring it. Instead, she swiped the room card that she had and pushed the door open.
Lu Huaiyu was not in the living room.
Shen Li looked around and heard a sound coming from the bedroom.
Lu Huaiyu seemed to be on the phone.
Shen Li turned around, planning to wait in the living room first.
However, just as she had taken one step, she heard one sentence.
“There’s no need for you to come over. Ah Li is here.”
Shen Li paused slightly, then she looked towards the bedroom.
She could not hear what the person on the other end said, but Lu Huaiyu said, “Gu Tinglan, I know my body very well.”
Shen Li frowned slightly.
‘So, it was Gu Tinglan who was calling.
‘Were they talking about yesterday…’
As she was thinking about this, the bedroom door suddenly opened, and Lu Huaiyu walked out.
When he looked up and noticed Shen Li, a hint of surprise flashed across his face.
“Ah Li? When did you come?”
Shen Li said, “I just did.”
Lu Huaiyu dipped his chin slightly in a nod. Soon, he put away the hint of surprise on his face and walked toward her.
“So, Mrs. Gu has left?”
“Yes, Aunt still has some things to do.”
Lu Huaiyu wrapped his arms around her waist and held her in their arms. He smiled and said, “I thought Mrs. Gu wouldn’t return you to me today.”
Shen Li snuggled further into his arms.
“Second Brother, don’t you want to rest?”
Before Lu Huaiyu could speak, his phone rang again.
He took his phone out. Shen Li unintentionally glanced at it. It looked like Yi Bin was calling.
It was already night in China. Why was he calling at this time?
“It looks like Special Assistant Yi must have something urgent to talk to you about?”
Lu Huaiyu seemed to have thought of something and his eyes flickered as he answered the call.
Yi Bin’s respectful voice came from the receiver.
Shen Li withdrew from Lu Huaiyu’s embrace and walked to the side. She opened the small fridge to get a bottle of water.
Lu Huaiyu chatted with Yi Bin in languid voices.
“I didn’t run into him.”
Shen Li opened the door of the small fridge.
There were quite a lot of drinks inside, as well as a bottle of wine.
Lu Huaiyu paused for a moment and raised his eyebrows.
“How many years has Xia Wei worked? Now, he can’t even deal with Shengguang, who’s run by a young junior?”
Shen Li tightened her grip on the small cabinet door.
Yi Bin was also having a headache.
How could this matter be determined by age?
Wouldn’t Lu Huaiyu be the least qualified person to say this?
Back then, when he had mercilessly dealt with the seniors in the business world, they had wanted to vomit blood even more than Xia Wei now!
Of course, he did not dare to say this out loud.
“Second Master, although that Vice President of theirs is young, he is indeed very capable. Moreover, he clearly understands our situation very well. Mr. Xia talked to them for an entire day, but he couldn’t get anything good out of them. Right now, they are still in a deadlock. There is really no other way, so I would like to ask you to give me some instructions. You see–”
Lu Huaiyu said,”Don’t change a single clause in the previous contract.”
Yi Bin said,”Second Master, that’s what Mr. Xia told them. Their vice president just went outside. It seems that he also intends to ask for instructions from the person in charge.”
Lu Huaiyu hummed lightly in acknowledgment.
Just as he said this, a cell phone rang.
Lu Huaiyu paused, and slowly raised his eyes to look at Shen Li.
