Chapter 985 - Equally Matched
Gu Tinglan poured himself a cup of tea and smiled.
“This information is top-secret to the Jockey Club. I’m afraid it’s not convenient to disclose it to Second Master.”
All relevant information about SSS members was strictly confidential, so it was natural that Gu Tinglan would refuse.
Lu Huaiyu’s thin lips twitched slightly.
“That’s a pity.”
Every year at the Hong Kong City Jockey Club, there were quite a number of people who participated in horse betting. Some people went because of the money, and some people just wanted to have fun.
It was not that there were no people who made a fortune overnight through this, but the number of those people was very few.
And those who could directly increase the principal by so many times were even fewer.
Even Gu Tinglan had secretly been amazed for a long time when he had first heard the news.
Gu Tinglan stretched out his finger.
“The person only bet on one match every day, but they bet all of their principal and interest from the first day each time. In just three days, this was the amount that they earned.”
Lu Huaiyu raised his eyebrows.
“If they had lost just one match–”
“That’s why I say that the person was amazing.”
Such courage and boldness were indeed not something that ordinary people could have.
Lu Huaiyu seemed to have thought of something and his thin lips twitched slightly.
This style… seemed a little familiar…
“However, this person isn’t the one who earned the most.”
Gu Tinglan stroked his cup.
“At that time, there was another SSS member who only bet once on the third day of the Jockey Club. However, because the entry capital was as high as ten million USD and he had bet on the match with the highest winning rate, he earned even more than the previous person.”
Lu Huaiyu’s expression remained the same.
Shen Li’s eyelashes moved slightly, and she tilted her head.
“Is that so?”
Gu Tinglan nodded.
“In that Jockey Club, only these two won the most.”
Shen Li was deep in thought.
“Then the person behind is… quite rich.”
The Jockey Club had been held for so many years, and only a few people had ever bet so much money on the first race.
Such a luxurious style reminded her of someone.
Gu Tinglan smiled and said, “One is rich while the other has luck and courage– In my opinion, both these people are on par.”
Lu Huaiyu raised his hand and poured more tea into his cup.
The waiter knocked on the door and began to serve the dishes.
The topic ended there.
“By the way, Little Uncle, are you planning to settle down in the Capital?” Shen Li asked.
Gu Tinglan smiled. “Why do you ask?”
Shen Li said, “Didn’t Siyang say that you just opened a private psychological clinic in the Capital?”
Gu Tinglan had been flying around the world before, so this should be the first one in the Capital.
Hearing this, Gu Tinglan suddenly stopped eating his sushi.
But in just a moment, he quickly adjusted himself.
“Yes, I’m opening a clinic here. But it’s not certain whether I will stay here permanently in the future yet. It’s also possible that I’ll be leaving it to my subordinates to manage on my behalf.”
Shen Li was not surprised by this answer.
Gu Tinglan was a well-known top psychiatrist both at home and abroad. It was unrealistic to ask him to oversee a clinic in the Capital.
Lu Huaiyu placed a peeled shrimp on Shen Li’s plate.
“Thank you, Second Brother.”
Shen Li thanked him and did not continue to ask any further questions.
Gu Tinglan raised his eyes and glanced at Lu Huaiyu.
Lu Huaiyu seemed to be unaware of it. He handed her some tissue paper. The expression on his handsome face was calm and focused.
It was as if he did not care about anything other than her.
Gu Tinglan’s lips moved slightly. He quickly withdrew his gaze and silently sighed.
After the meal, Gu Tinglan said, “Ah Li, I’ll send you home later. Lu Er and I have something else to do.”
Shen Li glanced at Lu Huaiyu.
If Gu Tinglan had not come, she would have gone back with Lu Huaiyu.
Lu Huaiyu looked up at her with a half-smile.
“You’re so generous?”
“Huh?” Shen Li’s gaze swept back and forth between the two of them.
The two of them had a good relationship. Wasn’t it normal for them to move together?
Lu Huaiyu seemed to have seen through her thoughts. He leaned back lazily and could not help but laugh.
Although he and Gu Tinglan got along very well, there was still a gradual process for their relationship to improve.
However, he did not know what the little girl was thinking. It seemed that she had decided from the beginning that the two of them had a good relationship.
Gu Tinglan stood up without even bothering to glance at Lu Huaiyu.
“Ah Li, let’s go.”
They headed in the direction of Skyleaf City.
When they arrived downstairs, Shen Li took the information that Gu Tinglan gave her and pushed the door open to get out.
Gu Tinglan reminded her,”All the information for the Dutian Racecourse race meeting is here. You can take a good look at it when you go back and have some time free. I’ll send you the specific progress of the later projects in a timely manner.”
“Thank you, Little Uncle.”
Shen Li waved goodbye to them, then turned around and went upstairs.
It was not until her figure completely disappeared that the car slowly drove away.
Lu Huaiyu looked at Gu Tinglan.
“Little Uncle, you’d better actually have something serious to discuss with me. Otherwise, I’ll still have time to go back and look for Ah Li.”
Gu Tinglan did not even bother to turn his head.
“You probably don’t want her to see you go to my place with me.”
Of course, he was talking about his mental health clinic.
Lu Huaiyu paused for a moment, then leaned back, his thin lips slightly raised.
“You should be very clear about my situation. This trip today was really unnecessary.”
Gu Tinglan had tried to give him a psychological intervention, after clearly knowing that he refused all drugs and psychological treatment methods.
If he did not know that Gu Tinglan always knew how to behave, and most importantly, that he was Shen Li’s youngest uncle, Lu Huaiyu definitely would not have shown such an attitude.
Gu Tinglan was clearly aware of this as well.
“You know best whether there’s a need or not.”
He turned the steering wheel and paused for a moment before saying,”I’m doing this for Ah Li’s sake.”
Lu Huaiyu was leaning back in his seat. His posture was languid and noble, but there was also a hint of arrogance in his bones.
After a long silence, he said softly,”It would be best if she doesn’t know. But if she wants to know, I won’t hide it.”
“No one has more right to know than her.”
He kept the two books in the drawer of the coffee table in the living room of the Rongyue Mansion.
If she could see–
In fact, there was an infinite possibility that she would see them.
Gu Tinglan turned his head. His lips moved, and he wanted to say something but stopped.
In the end, he did not say anything.
Naturally, since this was the choice that Lu Huaiyu had made, no one else had the right to interfere.
Shen Li returned to her room and sat down in front of her desk.
The materials that Gu Tinglan had brought over included a stack of paper materials and a USB flash drive.
She first flipped through the paper materials, which included the operating flow and financial situation of the Dutian Racecourse over the years.
Then, she turned on her computer and plugged in the USB flash drive.
The next moment, her eyes narrowed.
The top file was the information of all the SSS members of the Jockey Club.
She remembered what Gu Tinglan had mentioned before. She narrowed her eyes and opened the file.
At the top, a familiar name came into view.
