Lady Gu Is Too Weak To Fend For Herself - Chapter 765
“Do you feel embarrassed after being exposed? Is that why you’re unwilling to admit it? I’ve already seen through your intentions. You don’t have to hide anymore!” Qi Zhong said.
Qiao Xi: “?” “Are you crazy? Hurry up and get yourself treated, then. Don’t delay the treatment!’
She would never let this slide. She suddenly turned around and looked coldly at Qi Zhong’s arrogant face. She said casually, “Mr. Qi, who gave you the confidence? When did I say that I’m here to take you as my master? With your standard, you can only teach apprentices like Tang Ruge who have average aptitude!”
Her words mocked the two of them. Tang Ruge’s face instantly turned ferocious as her eyes widened.
Qi Zhong gritted his teeth in hatred. It had always been others who begged him to take them in as his apprentice. Even if they wanted to give him paintings, many people would have to fight for the chance to do so. This was the first time he took the initiative to take in an apprentice but was rejected.
“Qiao Xi! Remember this. No matter how much you beg me in the future, I’ll absolutely not accept you as my apprentice!” Qi Zhong roared in exasperation.
Qiao Xi was angered to the point of laughing. Where did he get the cheek to say such things? What could she learn from taking him as her master? Would he teach her how to take credit for someone else’s paintings, or would he get someone to paint for her?
Facing such a person, Qiao Xi could not be bothered to talk to him and directly turned to leave.
Tang Ruge’s face was livid. After calming down for a moment, she comforted Qi Zhong, “Master, don’t be angry. Xi Xi cares about her reputation a lot. It’s normal that she’s unwilling to admit that she regrets it.”
“Hmph! I definitely won’t take her in as my apprentice. She shouldn’t think that she can do whatever she wants just because she has some talent. If her character is bad, how is she going to survive in the oil painting world?” Qi Zhong said unhappily.
Tang Ruge pretended to be helpless. “Everyone knows that Xi Xi has no patience. After all, she doesn’t even have a complete work. It’s really a pity.”
Everyone’s eyes were filled with disdain when they heard this. Qiao Xi relied on her talent to be so arrogant, yet she could not even produce a complete piece of work. She could not be considered a painter!
Qiao Xi knew that this group of people were jackals of the same tribe, so she could not be bothered to explain it to them. She walked around but did not find Han Ye, so she simply stopped looking. In any case, the exhibition would be held for a total of three days. Perhaps Han Ye would only appear tomorrow or the day after.
She followed Li Xing’er to Old Master Li’s lounge to greet him before returning to Gu Zheng’s lounge.
Qiao Xi had just entered when she frowned and looked pitiful as if she had been bullied. “Ah Zheng, I’m so angry! Tang Ruge and Qi Zhong bullied me. How could they bring themselves to bully such a cute girl like me?!”
Gu Zheng slowly looked up.
Qiao Xi complained pitifully, “I happened to meet them when I went to the resting lounge just now. They mocked me without distinguishing between right and wrong. Qi Zhong even said that I didn’t know what was good for me! I’m so dizzy! Am I sick from anger? My body is really too weak!”
Gu Zheng massaged his temples. “Song Shijing.”
Song Shijing looked at Qiao Xi meaningfully and walked up to her.
Gu Zheng said, “Someone’s bullying Young Madam. Go handle it.”
Song Shijing suppressed the twitch of his lips and replied, “Yes!”
Tang Ruge and Qi Zhong had bullied Young Madam. If they really angered Young Madam, the two of them would not be able to see the sun tomorrow!
After Song Shijing left, Gu Zheng pulled the weak woman into his arms and asked softly, “Have you found Han Ye?”
Qiao Xi lowered her eyes and said dejectedly, “No! I looked around but didn’t see anyone. I ran into Qi Zhong and Tang Ruge, though. I was almost angered to death!”
She leaned against Gu Zheng’s chest and closed her eyes for a while. She opened her eyes and looked at the time. “The exhibition is about to start. I want to go out and take a look.”
Gu Zheng said gently, “Go ahead.”
As soon as Qiao Xi left, Gu Zheng picked up his phone and sent a message. Soon, the other party called. “Mr. Han Ye, are you going to attend the exhibition? Mr. Lu is indeed here to ask about you.”
“What did he ask?” Gu Zheng asked.
The person who called was the person in charge of the art exhibition. His expression was indescribable. “He asked if you were present. He even asked… if you were still… alive.”
The person in charge really did not understand. Why did these people think that Han Ye was an old man? He was clearly only in his 20s and was in his prime!
Moreover, Mr. Lu was even stranger. Why did he have to ask if Han Ye was still alive? What exactly did he want to do?
Gu Zheng sneered. “Heh! He sounds like a retard for asking this!”
“Haha, you’re right, Mr. Han Ye.” The person in charge smiled awkwardly.
