The Little Brat’s Sweet And SassyVolume 1046

Shen Li paused in her movements.
“Is that so?”
Yu Pingchuan poured her a cup of tea,
“I have some friends around who are quite interested in horse racing as well, but I’ve never heard them mention Shi Yang before.”
This kind of circle was common in private. The news of who had recently bought a good horse and whose horse had won the championship in horse racing would spread like wildfire.
If Yu Pingchuan said that he had never heard of it, then Shi Yang had probably never mentioned it before.
“But it’s hard to say.” Yu Pingchuan thought for a while, “I have a few friends who were not interested in these things at first, but at a certain stage, they suddenly fell in love with it. One of them even opened his own equestrian club.”
Shen Li stroked her teacup. 𝒇𝐫ℯ𝑒𝒘ℯ𝑏n𝑜ѵ𝐞l.c𝗼𝗺
“Yes, he bought a white horse today.”
Yu Pingchuan was a little surprised, but on second thought, it did seem quite normal.
“Then he must really like it. Besides, he doesn’t lack the money.”
Shen Li sipped her tea but did not say anything.
Yu Pingchuan asked again, “Oh right, speaking of Shi Yang, I heard that he participated in the auction for your ‘Fog’ the other day?”
Shen Li nodded. “He raised his paddle once.”
“It seems that he really likes your painting. I heard that the few members of the Gu family were all present that day, and the bidding was very intense.”
As Yu Pingchuan spoke, he glanced at Lu Huaiyu who was beside him.
Who would have thought that the painting would end up in the hands of this kid?
Lu Huaiyu smiled.
“I still have to thank the elders of the Gu family for giving in.”
Yu Pingchuan choked for a moment and quickly shifted his gaze back to Shen Li.
“Even if he only raised his paddle once, it was already quite surprising. Previously, he said that he admired your painting, but I didn’t pay much attention to it.”
In the past few years, Tree’s Shadow had risen rapidly in the domestic art scene. Although she had not debuted that long ago, she had already gained a large number of fans.
Then, after the matter of Shen Li being Tree’s Shadow had been exposed, this name had been found to have a connection with Mei Yanqing and had become even more popular.
Yu Pingchuan had often heard such compliments while he was out so he was already immune to them.
Therefore, when he heard that Shi Yang had actually tried to bid for Shen Li’s painting, he was indeed quite surprised.
Shen Li did not care much about this matter. Seeing that Yu Pingchuan still had the collection of information on the horse race in his hands, she asked, “You’ve seen this too? Is there anything you like?”
At the mention of this, Yu Pingchuan was immediately energized.
He picked up the information and pointed it out to Shen Li.
“Look, this is the batch that will be participating in the race tomorrow. I think number five and number eight are pretty good!”
Shen Li followed his hand and looked over. She was silent for a moment.
“… What is your budget for the horse races this time?”
Yu Pingchuan chuckled.
“Two paintings. Originally, I was just going to say one, but Ah Li will be in charge of the horse racing event this time. As a senior brother, of course, I have to show my support for you, don’t you think so?”
Shen Li stayed silent.
Yu Pingchuan’s words on this matter were not worth believing.
Last year, he had originally said half a painting, but in the end, the amount of money he had bet was far more than that.
If not for his last bet with her in the end, who knew how much he would have lost?
But this time, he had said two paintings…
Shen Li silently calculated in her heart the time it would take for him to produce two paintings. She felt a rare heartache.
After deliberating for a moment, she said, “Then you’d better bet with me this year.”
It was quite hard for the old man to produce a painting.
Yu Pingchuan was stunned. Feeling surprised, he said,”Oh? Ah Li, are you going to play too?”
The whole of Dutian Racecourse belonged to her. He had not expected her to have such plans.
Lu Huaiyu glanced sideways at her.
Shen Li nodded. “It was quite interesting last year. I just want to join in the fun.”
Yu Pingchuan was very happy. “Sure! Then when the time comes– Oh, right, Huaiyu, are you coming as well?”
Lu Huaiyu’s lips curved slightly.
On August 1st, at one o’clock in the afternoon, the Hong Kong City horse racing event officially began.
The stands were packed with people, and it was bustling with activity.
The members of the Gu family arrived one after another.
Shen Li first accompanied Old Master Gu and Old Madam Gu to private room number two, before going to private room number one, which used to belong solely to Gu Tingyin.
Many people around looked over, and when they saw this scene, they were all discussing and sighing with emotion.
“The first private room is specially reserved for the fourth miss gu. It hasn’t been opened for so many years. Now that Shen Li is back, this one-of-a-kind favor is naturally given to her.”
“After all, she is the only descendant of the fourth Miss Gu, and she has been wandering outside for so many years. Won’t the Gu family pamper her even more?”
“When Shen Li came last year, someone mentioned that she looked like the fourth miss Gu. Who would have thought that they were actually mother and daughter?”
“It’s a pity that the fourth miss Gu went early…”
Shi Yang walked towards the VIP box. When he heard the discussions around him, he raised his head and looked ahead.
Shen Li had already entered the private room. There was no one in the corridor.
It was a pity.
He adjusted his gold-rimmed glasses and smiled faintly, looking gentle and refined. Then, he turned around and entered his own private room.
Shen Li had just entered private room number one. When she saw what was inside, she was slightly stunned.
This private room was obviously different from the other private rooms. It had obviously been specially decorated. There was a white pony doll on the sofa and a white telescope on the table.
She picked it up and took a look. She saw the shallow handwriting that had been engraved on the edge of the telescope– Jin.
This was… Shen Zhijin had given it specially to Gu Tingyin to watch the competition.
These things that had been placed here were still brand new, as if they had skipped the long period of time in the middle. Everything had stopped with it, forever staying at that time.
Someone knocked on the door.
Shen Li looked up.
Actually, the door of this private room was open. When she looked up, she saw Gu Tinglan standing outside the door.
Gu Tinglan walked in.
He was originally in private room number six, but for the convenience of explaining the situation of the horse farm and the horse race to Shen Li, he had specially come over.
After all, he had been in charge of Dutian Racecourse before, so he understood these things the best.
No one was more suitable than him.
He had just sat down next to Shen Li when Yu Pingchuan followed closely behind.
Seeing that Gu Tinglan was also there, Yu Pingchuan was stunned for a moment.
Gu Tinglan stood up and greeted him with a smile.
Yu Pingchuan could roughly guess why Gu Tinglan was here, but–
“Where’s Huaiyu? He’s not with you?”
As soon as he finished speaking, a deep and smiling voice came from outside the door:
“It looks like I’m late.”
Shen Li looked up. “Second Brother.”
Lu Huaiyu had actually come with her. He had been delayed because he had bumped into a few friends earlier.
After all, it was rare for him to come to Hong Kong City.
Lu Huaiyu walked in and sat down beside Shen Li.
Just then, on the huge electronic screen on the racetrack, the information of the horses participating in the first preliminary round appeared one after another.
The positions of No. 1 and No. 2 still belonged to Moon Bright and Qingfeng respectively.
However, Qingfeng was not participating in this round.
Gu Tinglan raised his chin.
“How should we bet on this round?”
As soon as he finished speaking, two voices sounded in the room at the same time.
“No. 7 wins alone.”
