Chapter 990 - : Interesting People
As soon as the first call was connected, it was just as quickly rejected.
Yu Yu frowned and made a second call, but it was rejected again.
She hesitated for a moment before calling the third call.
This time, the other party finally picked up. The tone of his voice was extremely impatient.
“What’s the matter?”
Yu Yu choked on her words, but she still tried her best to make her voice sound calm and polite.
“Miss Xu, about what happened previously, I wonder what the situation is like on your side?”
Previously, Xu Yini had said that Lu Zheng and his wife would be coming back and she could start from there. However, even after so long, there had still been no news.
Yu Yu had not wanted to make this call, but she wanted to help Yu Cheng. There was no faster and more convenient way than to ask the Lu family for help.
Of course, she would not be the one who would be doing the begging, it would be Xu Yini.
Today, Xiang Yao had forced her to such an extent that she really had no choice but to urge Xu Yini.
Only by showing that she had indeed helped Yu Cheng would the attitude of the Yu family towards her improve. At that time, the matter of money would naturally be easier to settle.
However, Yu Yu had not expected that the moment she said this, Xu Yini’s tone of voice became even worse.
“What the situation is like? How else could it be?”
Yu Yu’s heart sank.
“Could it be that… it didn’t work out? But didn’t you say that you were going to invite Madam Lu–”
It would have been better if she had not mentioned it. However, the moment she mentioned it, Xu Yini felt extremely regretful and annoyed.
She had always thought that Fang Yunyi liked her. Who would have known that upon Fang Yunyi’s return, she would behave extremely cold and distant towards her? Instead, she had protected Shen Li in every way possible.
It had clearly been the first time they met, yet Fang Yunyi had still stood up for Shen Li without hesitation.
While she had been painstakingly picking out rubies for Fang Yunyi and preparing gifts for her, Fang Yunyi had already made a few purchases, just so that Shen Li could choose the one she liked the most.
In this regard, money was secondary. The most important thing was the sincerity of the intention.
Fang Yunyi was a wife of the Lu family, with a distinguished status. There were too many people who wanted to please her. Even Xu Yini was just one of them.
However, Shen Li was different.
From the start, the way she was treated had been different.
After all, with Fang Yunyi’s personality, if she did not like someone, she just did not like them. Even if Lu Huaiyu liked that person, if she did not approve of them, she would still never change her mind.
Fang Yunyi did indeed treat Shen Li favorably.
In comparison, Xu Yini felt that she was the butt of a joke.
After she had returned home, she had thrown a tantrum and had not gone out for a few days.
Every time she thought of this matter, her face would ache.
Now that she had finally managed to put it out of her mind, Yu Yu had called again!
Of course, Xu Yini would never tell Yu Yu the truth.
“Yu Yu, don’t tell me that you don’t know how serious Yu Cheng’s crime is? Do you know how much trouble he has caused me just by speaking up for you?”
Yu Yu’s frown deepened.
At that time, Xu Yini had been the one who had taken charge of everything. She had said that she would take this opportunity to plead with the Lu family. Why was she blaming them now?
She suppressed the anger in her heart and said, “But back then, we clearly agreed–”
“Saying it is one thing, but doing it is another,” Xu Yini forcefully interrupted her, “At the end of the day, Yu Cheng is still extremely guilty! Even if anyone wants to save him, he has to give others the chance to do so, right?”
Yu Yu’s heart completely sank to the bottom.
“So, are you saying that you’re not willing to help?”
“Yu Yu, your words are too funny. Are you saying I didn’t help?” Xu Yini was so angry that she wanted to laugh. “If this is the attitude that you have, then you don’t need to contact me anymore.”
She was already extremely annoyed, but when she heard Yu Yu Yu’s words, she exploded.
“In the future, don’t bother me with any matters about your Yu family!”
After saying that, Xu Yini hung up the phone without waiting for Yu Yu to reply.
The office went dead silent.
Yu Yu endured it for a while, her face having turned red and white.
She picked up the cup that was on the table and slammed it onto the floor!
The glass shattered into pieces in an instant.
As expected, this sound alerted the people outside, and the assistant rushed over to knock on the door.
“President Yu? President Yu? What happened?”
Yu Yu closed her eyes. She managed to compose herself with much difficulty and walked over to open the door.
She raised her finger and pointed inside.
“I accidentally broke the cup. Get someone to clean it up.”
The assistant quickly sized up her expression. He had a bad feeling, but Yu Yu had already turned around and walked back into the room. The assistant could only say, “Yes, President Yu.”
Shen Li returned home.
Shen Zhijin had gone away on a business trip a few days ago, so she was the only one left at home at the moment.
After a simple lunch, Shen Li went into her art studio again.
She stayed there for a few hours.
Only when the sun was setting and the clouds in the sky had been dyed a warm orange did she put down her brush.
She stood up and massaged her somewhat stiff neck. She walked to the side to pick up her phone.
Only at this time did she see that she had gotten a missed call from Cheng Xiyue on the phone, as well as a few unread messages that he had sent.
[ Sister Ah Li, I just called you but you didn’t pick up. I’m in the Capital. Would you like to get together tonight? ]
[ Sister Ah Li, please remember to reply when you see the message. ]
Shen Li took a look. His call had been an hour ago. It was already six o’clock.
She immediately dialed back, and the other side picked up very quickly.
“Sister Ah Li?”
Cheng Xiyue’s tone was the same as usual and seemed to carry a teasing smile.
“What have you been busy with? Did you only see this message after so long?”
Shen Li explained,”Brother Xiyue, I was painting in the art studio this afternoon, and my phone was muted, so I didn’t hear the notification.”
Cheng Xiyue understood.
“So that’s what happened. It’s fine, it’s fine, it’s still not too late at this time. Would you like to come out to eat? Oh yes, Lu Er should come along too.”
Shen Li said, “Okay.”.
Cheng Xiyue said with a smile, “Alright, then we’ll come and pick you up.”
After saying that, he hung up the phone.
“What do you think? Didn’t I say that little sister Ah Li still misses me?”
Cheng Xiyue turned the steering wheel and turned the direction to Skyleaf City. After that, he turned his head and glanced at Lu Huaiyu, who was sitting in the front passenger seat, and raised his eyebrows smugly.
Lu Huaiyu’s expression was indifferent and could not be bothered to pay attention to him.
“Oh right, did you hear? The young master of the Wu family won this number in a bet he made overseas, a few days ago.”
Cheng Xiyue stretched out three fingers.
“Although it can’t be compared to you back then, it can still be considered quite amazing.”
Lu Huaiyu was still unperturbed.
Cheng Xiyue clicked his tongue.
“But speaking of which, it seems that you have not played in a long time?”
This time, Lu Huaiyu finally opened his mouth.
“It’s meaningless,” he said indifferently.
Cheng Xiyue was astonished. “Winning money is meaningless? At that time, you were in Leland–”
Lu Huaiyu leaned back in his seat, his posture leisurely and languid.
“I mean, it’s meaningless to always win money.”
Cheng Xiyue was at a loss for words.
Right now, he was really regretting his decision to take this person out to eat.
Not knowing what he was thinking of, Lu Huaiyu’s thin lips twitched slightly, and the corners of his eyes were tinged with some interest.
“It’s people who are interesting.”
