Reincarnation Of The Businesswoman At School Book 2 Chapter 317
Hearing what Gu Ning had just said, Leng Shaoting was cheered up at once. He didn't mind Gu Ning taking his properties as her own at all. "Well, then I'll take the gift on behalf of grandpa."
After that, they went back to the house. Before long, the news that someone had cut out the King's Green went across the street of stone gambling. Many people were shocked as well as jealous.
When it was time for dinner, Leng Shaoting cooked for Gu Ning at the house. Gu Ning was on her period now, so Leng Shaoting persuaded her to rest a bit more. Nevertheless, even if she wasn't on her period, he would still be willing to cook for her. Leng Shaoting was a great cook; even better than Gu Ning.
During the meal, Leng Shaoting's phone rang all of a sudden. The caller was Xu Jinchen. Xu Jinchen invited them to attend an auction at 2 pm tomorrow afternoon.
Gu Ning heard that and was excited. She asked Xu Jinchen whether she would have a chance to put her objects up for the auction. In fact, Gu Ning just wanted to sell her ancient objects for fun, not for money.
"Do you have antiques as well? What is it?" Xu Jinchen asked with curiosity.
Gu Ning thought for a second before she said, "An Official Kiln Writing-brush Washer." She just wanted to attend the auction for fun, so she didn't want to put an object that was too expensive up for it.
"No problem," Xu Jinchen answered with alacrity. He knew little about antiques, thus he didn't ask further about the Official Kiln Writing-brush Washer. At the auction, there was an appraiser who was responsible to evaluate the objects anyway. Of course, the appraisers weren't always right, so occasionally there would be replicas. Some of them looked so real, and many experts failed to tell the difference from real ones. However, before the auction, potential buyers could check the object themselves and so they would be responsible for their own choice. The auction house didn't need to bear any responsibility, and its reputation wouldn't be damaged because that was the rule in this industry.
A few minutes later, Master Leng called Leng Shaoting again talking about the auction too.
Master Leng was an antique lover, so he was interested in the auction. He asked Leng Shaoting whether he was free tomorrow to keep him company. There was one of Xu Beihong's paintings at the auction, and he wanted to buy it.
Leng Shaoting directly replied that he wasn't free tomorrow, because he was going to attend the auction with Gu Ning. However, he didn't tell his grandpa the reason. Otherwise, his grandpa would definitely come to meet them.
To stop his grandpa from coming, Leng Shaoting said, "If you want the painting, I can buy it for you. It'll be crowded at the auction, so I think that it would be better if you stayed at home."
"I have to check it myself! What if it's fake? I don't want to waste money," Master Leng said.
"Well, I can give you a better calligraphy than Xu Beihong's painting, so you don't need to attend the auction," Leng Shaoting said. He was trying every method to stop Master Leng from coming.
"Do you want Xu Beihong's painting, or Zhao Mengfu's Luo Shen Fu ?" Leng Shaoting asked.
"What?" Master Leng was astonished and excited. "Are you sure that you have Luo Shen Fu ?"
"Yes," Leng Shaoting said.
With Leng Shaoting's affirmative answer, Master Leng was more than excited now. He couldn't wait to get it. "Give it to me right now!"
"I promise that I'll bring it to you later." Since Leng Shaoting mentioned Luo Shen Fu , he planned to send the gift to his grandpa today. Leng Shaoting understood his grandpa's personality well. If he didn't get the calligraphy, he wouldn't sleep at night, and Leng Shaoting didn't want his grandpa to stay up late. His grandpa was elderly after all.
"When? No, you must bring it to me as soon as possible!" Master Leng demanded.
"I'm eating now; I'll bring it to you after that."
"Great! Don't waste your time eating and bring it to me as quickly as you can!" Master Leng urged.
Leng Shaoting hung up the call and told Gu Ning he was going to leave for a while. Gu Ning heard the conversation between them and didn't mind. After the meal, Leng Shaoting went back to the Leng Family's house with the calligraphy and the King's Green in his hands.
Gu Ning then sent messages to Lu Zhan and Duan Lixin, telling them that she had already settled the office building and the new company. Lu Zhan and Duan Lixin both relaxed after reading Gu Ning's message. From now on, they would work for Fenghua Entertainment. Of course, they needed to sign contracts first.
In the Leng Family's house, Master Leng was anxiously waiting for Leng Shaoting, and told the housekeeper to check outside all the time to see whether Leng Shaoting was back home..
It was past 7 pm, so Leng Yuanqian's family and Leng Yuanzhen's family were all in the house with Master Leng. They knew that Master Leng was restless because of Leng Shaoting, so Leng Yuanqian's family was displeased. In their eyes, Leng Shaoting was an outsider, even though he was Master Leng's eldest grandson.
"Grandpa, Shaoting just visited you yesterday. Why are you so excited now?" Leng Shaoxun asked with curiosity. Not only Leng Shaoxun, but everyone else was also curious. They had never seen Master Leng being so restless with excitement just because Leng Shaoting was coming back.
"Shaoting is going to give me the Luo Shen Fu ! It's a priceless calligraphy!" Master Leng replied with happiness. He also didn't hide his appreciation towards Leng Shaoting, which made Leng Yuanqian's family feel dissatisfied. However, they had to admit that Leng Shaoting was very able to be able to get Zhao Mengfu's Luo Shen Fu . They all knew that Master Leng was an antique lover, and everyone wanted to gain his favor. Unfortunately, it was so hard to find a real one nowadays even if you had enough money.
"I don't think that it's a big deal. It's just a valueless piece of calligraphy," Leng Shaojia said with disdain. She was obviously annoyed.
"Shaojia, mind your words!" Leng Yuanqian criticized. They all knew that Master Leng was an antique lover, and her words would definitely anger Master Leng.
