Chapter 946 - What Was She Thinking
On the other end of the phone, Lu Huaiyu was silent for a moment before he laughed.
After some deliberation, Yang Tao looked at the training ground and said,”Do you remember after the match in Leland, someone had picked up a flattened Red Gold Star cigarette box at the scene? There’s something I haven’t mentioned to you– Wen Xiao’s favorite cigarette is Red Gold Star.”
When Wen Xiao had joined LY, Yang Tao had secretly observed him and found out that Wen Xiao really only smoked the Red Gold Star brand.
Whenever any other people offered him any other brand to smoke, he would either not take it or he would not light it.
Now, the entire LY team knew that he always carried a box of Red Gold Star cigarettes in his pocket at any time.
However, they did not know about the underground race in Leland, so no one had ever made the connection.
Lu Huaiyu said calmly, “Is that so?”
When Yang Tao heard that he was speaking so calmly and unhurriedly, as if he was not very surprised, he could not help but feel a little strange.
“Lu Er, aren’t you being overly calm? You seemed to be quite interested in L. Why are not bothered about it now that you have a clue?”
Not only did he have a clue, the answer was almost right in front of him.
The race in Leland had been extremely private and had never been made public. Only the drivers who had participated in the race that day and a few people in the racing circle knew about it.
That was why Yang Tao rarely mentioned it to others.
The reason why he had mentioned it to Lu Huaiyu was firstly because of their relationship, and secondly because Lu Huaiyu had also been at the peak of his previous racing level.
Even if he did not say it, Lu Huaiyu had plenty of methods and channels.
That was why he chosen to tell Lu Huaiyu about this matter at this time. He had not expected Lu Huaiyu to have such a calm reaction.
“Didn’t I say previously that I wasn’t going to investigate it anymore?” Lu Huaiyu lazily said.
Yang Tao was speechless.
He had thought that Lu Huaiyu had only given up because it was a difficult matter to investigate, but now it looked like…
“That’s an opponent that is on par with you, but you’re actually saying that you’re not going to investigate it?”
Yang Tao lightly clicked his tongue,
“But, no matter what, it’s a coincidence, and now I finally know. The only thing I didn’t expect is that even though Wen Xiao suddenly retired and completely refused to return to the track, he actually went to participate in such an underground car race many years later…”
Lu Huaiyu’s voice raised slightly as he said, “Huh?”
Yang Tao looked at Wen Xiao, who was sitting just outside the track, feeling very emotional.
“What do you think he’s thinking? He’s clearly still at his peak strength, and even in better condition than he was back then. Would he rather compete in an underground race than return to the professional league?”
Lu Huaiyu leaned back in his chair and tapped his fingers on the armrest, the corners of his thin lips slightly raised.
“Yeah, I wonder what he was thinking?”
Yang Tao saw that he did not seem to have any intention to probe further into this matter, so he did not say anything more.
After all, it had been more than two years. Moreover, Wen Xiao had already signed up with LY. In addition, there were also seedlings like Shen Li and Ji Shu in the team…
This was already something that many clubs could not hope for. There was no point in digging into the past.
“Then I’ll bring the contract to you tomorrow.”
After Yang Tao said that, he ended the call and looked toward the field again.
That pure black racing car was already like an arrow leaving the bow, drawing a perfect line on the track and rushing out at high speed!
Yang Tao was relieved. Oh, so it looked like Shen Li’s standard seemed to have improved again?
As Lu Huaiyu put down his phone, the room was silent.
He tilted his head slightly, as if he had just recalled something, but at the same time, he seemed to be deep in thought.
Back then at Dutian Racecourse in Hong Kong City, she had made it clear that she had never been to Leland.
Doyle might admit his mistake, but he would not have suspected it for no reason.
There were many people who smoked red gold stars, but there were not many who were qualified to participate in that underground race.
How could a person know so much about the climate and weather of a city that she had never been to?
He had not thought so at first, but when he thought about it carefully, there were actually clues everywhere.
It was not that he had not expected this answer before, which was why he had been so calm when he heard Yang Tao say those things today.
Those words had only confirmed a suspicion that he had in his mind.
What he cared about more was…
Why was she hiding this matter?
He thought quietly for a long time. Suddenly, he turned his gaze slightly and it landed on the cuffs of his shirt.
The pure and clear sapphire cufflinks reflected the brilliance of its price.
His slender fingers suddenly stopped moving.
After a long time, he laughed softly.
The loud roar of the engine echoed in the air above the track, as if even the wind had become clear and sharp.
That pure black race car sped past quickly!
The one following most closely behind was Ji Shu, but even so, there was still quite a distance between the two of them.
As for the one following behind, there was no need to mention it.
“Cousin looks so cool!”
The two Gu brothers clenched their small fists. Their faces were flushed with excitement, and their eyes were bright. From the looks of it, they could not wait to rush over and cheer.
Gu Siyang was actually very excited watching this. However, since the two brats were here, as the big brother, he had to put on some airs.
Thus, he let out a snort of laughter, put on a proper posture, and said casually, “It’s just a routine operation. Is there a need to make such a big fuss over nothing?”
The eyes of the Gu brothers were still glued to the black race car that was charging at the front. They were so excited that they could not speak. They only nodded vigorously, their eyes filled with admiration.
Gu Siyang waved his hand.
“You’ll get used to it after watching it much more.”
There was nothing more for him to do. How could he help it that he had such good taste?
He turned around to take a look and saw Wen Xiao sitting in the rest area, his arm resting on the back of the seat. His sitting posture was extremely relaxed, and his expression was unprecedentedly relaxed.
Gu Siyang had originally been quite afraid of him, but when he saw him in this state, he could not help but approach him with a smile.
“N… Coach Wen, you seem to be in a good mood today?”
Wen Xiao raised his eyebrows slightly when he heard this, but he did not say anything.
Not only was it good? It was extremely good!
Ever since he had come to LY and met this group of b*stards, he had not had a day of peace.
Today, he could finally relax.
There was no need to say anything, and there was no need to do anything.
As long as Shen Li entered the competition with them, the overwhelming feeling that could only be felt on the track would be more effective than anything else.
In LY, the only people who had competed with Shen Li before were strictly speaking, Ji Shu and Lu Siyu.
The rest of the group would only know today what it meant to be in a different world.
Thinking of this, Wen Xiao’s mood became even more relaxed.
Sure enough, after the test ended, apart from Ji Shu, the expressions on everyone’s faces when those two got out of their cars were all very interesting.
Ji Shu had already been abused thousands of times, while the others were all silent.
In the end, watching the competition and participating in it personally were different.
Wen Xiao stood up, glanced around in satisfaction, and snapped his fingers.
“Today’s training ends here.”
This round was enough for them to study for a long time.
After Wen Xiao finished speaking, he raised his chin at Shen Li.
The speed could be controlled well, but his old heart could not withstand the torment.
