Chapter 965 - Ruby Earrings
He had seen it on Weibo not too long ago.
To be precise, it was from Shen Li’s super words.
Just then, Fang Qingyun also saw the picture printed on the mug and said in surprise, “Eh? Old man, why does this look so much like Ah Li?”
On the mug was a cartoon figure. The little girl’s long hair was slightly curly. She was wearing a pink and white lolita dress, and a pair of beige Mary Jane shoes, and she was holding a hat with a ribbon tied into a bow in her hand. It was exquisite and beautiful.
As soon as he said this, Old Master Lu’s body froze.
He had been so focused on checking to see if the contents in the express delivery package had been stolen that he had completely forgotten that there was someone beside him!
He quickly raised a hand to cover up.
“We’re not lacking in cups at home. Why did Grandpa buy more?”
A lazy and light voice came from behind.
Old Master Lu turned around and saw Lu Huaiyu leaning against the back of the chair as he looked over. His posture was lazy, as if he was only asking a casual question.
He should… he shouldn’t have seen it, right?
Old Master Lu coughed.
“I didn’t buy this. I drew a lottery online and it was given to me.”
Lu Huaiyu’s gaze fell on the mug. He raised his eyebrows slightly and gave a faint smile.
“Is that so? I see that you seem to like this mug. Can I have a look?”
Old Master Lu’s eyes flickered.
He was too embarrassed to tell the others that he was secretly collecting the paraphernalia of his granddaughter-in-law.
“I… I just like it casually! Mainly, it didn’t cost any money…”
A sudden thought seemed to come to Lu Huaiyu’s mind.
“I heard from Uncle Fang that you’ve been receiving a lot of express deliveries recently. Are those… all of them?”
Old Master Lu glared at Fang Qingyun. Why did he always report everything to this kid?!
Fang Qingyun looked confused and innocent.
Why was the old man looking at him? I really had not expected him to do this kind of thing all day long!
One or two was fine, but how many express deliveries had he received during this period of time?
Old Master Lu saw that it would not be easy to let this matter go, so all he could say was, “That… actually, it’s not entirely true… Some are cups, and some are other things.”
There were quite a lot of them.
Lu Huaiyu did not say anything. He merely took his phone out and entered the Weibo page of [ Is Carp Married Today? ] .
His slender and well-proportioned fingers swiped twice on the screen. He quickly found the Weibo post that corresponded to the mug.
The blogger’s post was more casual. They had not used any assistance for the lucky draw. Instead, the person had chosen the top five likes from the comment section.
Lu Huaiyu saw the comment with the most likes at the top.
[ Ah Li No. 1: Who didn’t close his fairytale storybook properly and let little Princess Ah Li run out? ] [ fatty blue smiles ][ balloon ][ love ][ rainbow ] !!! ]
Lu Huaiyu was speechless.
He raised his eyes and looked at Old Master Lu.
Old Master Lu was inexplicably flustered by his gaze and clutched the mug in his hand.
“Why, why are you looking at me like that? Let me tell you, I won this mug with great difficulty in the lucky draw. Even if you wanted it, you can’t have it!”
Lu Huaiyu looked at him for a long time before finally saying,”You’d better not tell my mother.
“It’s really not easy for me to marry a wife.”
After lunch, Lu Huaiyu called Shen Li.
She seemed to be busy and it rang a few times before she finally picked up.
Before Lu Huaiyu could speak, he heard Gu Tingfeng’s voice.
“Ah Li, please try these mussels.”
Only then did Lu Huaiyu realize something.
“You’re at Jinshui No. 1 Courtyard?”
“Yes.” Shen Li thanked Gu Tingfeng before explaining to him, “I was delivering something to First Aunt today, so I ended up eating here.”
Lu Huaiyu had originally wanted to tell her that Lu Zheng and Fang Yunyi were coming back. After all, they would not have much time when they arrived in the Capital next Saturday.
However, when he heard that Shen Li was having lunch with Gu Tingfeng and his wife, he suppressed this thought.
It would be better to find a suitable time to tell her later.
“It’s nothing. I was just having lunch with my grandfather today. He said he misses you.”
Lu Huaiyu said,”You should go ahead and eat first.”
Shen Li was with Gu Tingfeng and his wife, so she did not notice that he actually had something to say. He nodded.
The two ended the phone call.
Liang Su looked over with a smile in her eyes.
“By the way, Ah Li, did you know that the last stop of Mr. Ronai’s art exhibition tour will be in the Capital?”
Shen Li nodded.
“He mentioned it to me before. It’s next Friday.”
This news had actually spread a long time ago. Many people in the Capital were extremely excited as they waited for the art exhibition to be held.
Shen Li estimated that there would be quite a number of fans coming from all over the country.
After all, it had been nearly ten years since he had last held an art exhibition in the country.
Liang Su looked a little surprised.
“Next Friday? I thought it would be next Wednesday. I might not be able to accompany you to go then.”
She had to return to Hong Kong City for her next project, so she probably would not be able to make it in time.
She had a good relationship with Mr. Ronai, so it was natural that she had to support the exhibition. Besides, Shen Li also liked his paintings very much.
However, the timing was too coincidental.
Shen Li smiled and said, “It’s okay, Aunt.”
Attending an exhibition was something that could be done by one person.
Moreover, this was a Ronai art exhibition. She had originally planned to attend it on her own anyway.
Liang Su saw that she was not very bothered, so she was relieved and stroked her hair.
“By the way, previously I saw a ruby ear stud set in CHUIN which I thought matched you very well. I wanted to buy it for you, but it has already been ordered.”
Liang Su took her phone out and showed it to her.
“Look, this is the one.”
Shen Li looked at the square ruby earrings in the photo and her eyebrows raised slightly.
Where else had she seen it before?
Oh, right, among one of the cartoons that He Xiaochen had sent her before, there had been a pair of earrings that matched this one.
At that time, someone in the comments section had mentioned that it was a replica of a high-end jewelry design.
Liang Su felt that it was a pity.
“This design really suits you. It’s such a pity…”
Shen Li’s gaze froze on it for a moment.
It had to be said that although the drawing of the earrings had been exquisite. However, for something like a gemstone, it was only when one looked at the real thing that one could experience that kind of beauty.
It was clear, clean, and resplendent.
Not to mention anything else, just this ruby itself was a rare treasure.
Not to mention its design and craftsmanship, it was also top-notch.
She really liked it.
Her peach blossom eyes curved beautifully. She smiled and said, “Since it has already been ordered, then let’s just forget it.”
