Lady Gu Is Too Weak To Fend For Herself - Chapter 766
Chapter 766: They Like To Be Tortured
“Normal people won’t bicker with idiots. It’s very embarrassing.” Gu Zheng asked casually, “Do you know Qi Zhong and Tang Ruge?”
The person in charge nodded, then Gu Zheng said indifferently, “They bullied my wife. You know what to do.”
The person in charge: “…” Gu Zheng had just said that he would not bicker with idiots. However, when others bullied Miss Han Yin, he could not help but attack.
On the other hand, when Gu Yao saw Qiao Xi, he rushed over excitedly. “Xi Xi, I didn’t expect you to be an oil painter! You’re even participating in an international oil painting exhibition. You’re really too awesome!”
Li Xing’er was also trembling with excitement. “I want to tell my grandfather that I have a friend who’s a famous painter!”
The corners of Qiao Xi’s mouth twitched slightly. Did these two people have to be so excited?
At this moment, the person in charge walked over with Qiao Xi’s painting in his hand. However, it was not framed nor signed. “Miss Hanyin, where should I put this painting?”
Qiao Xi pointed at a corner. “Just leave it there!”
As soon as the person in charge left, Tang Ruge walked forward with a smile. “Xi Xi, are you here to see the art exhibition or to look for Master? Tell me the truth. I won’t laugh at you.”
Qiao Xi frowned. Was this woman crazy? Did she like being abused so much?
Tang Ruge looked at Qiao Xi with resentment. She had been defeated by Qiao Xi several times. She did not believe that Qiao Xi’s luck would be so good every time!
“Xi Xi, you’re too proud. Master Qi isn’t willing to take you in as his apprentice because he doesn’t like you. Although there was a misunderstanding at the apprenticeship banquet previously, Teacher Qi was still willing to take me in as his apprentice after I apologized. It’s because I’m humble. Since things have already come to this, stop fooling around.”
When Qiao Xi heard Tang Ruge’s words, she forcefully resisted the urge to vomit. She looked at Tang Ruge as if she was looking at a mentally inept person.
Tang Ruge looked fiercely at Qiao Xi. She did not understand how Qiao Xi could be so arrogant. She clearly could not even produce a complete work, yet she was still so arrogant!
At this moment, Qi Zhong walked over and said impatiently, “Ruge, what’s there to say to such a person? Aren’t you afraid of losing your status?!”
Tang Ruge pretended to be regretful. “Master, I think Xi Xi is really talented. If you can take her in as your apprentice, her future will definitely be limitless. She offended you previously. Please don’t take it to heart and give her another chance.”
Qi Zhong frowned. “Ruge, you’re kind-hearted and always think of others. But look at her. Is she a humble person? She’s not even willing to lower her head and admit her mistake to me. Why should I take such a person as my apprentice? I’ve already made up my mind. I won’t take her as my apprentice!”
Gu Yao: “?” The two of them echoed each other like fools! He could not stand it anymore!
“Mr. Qi, isn’t it inappropriate for you to be so overbearing to a junior? Whether Qiao Xi wants to acknowledge a master or not is up to her. No one can force her. Just because she doesn’t want to acknowledge you as her master, you’re slandering her in public. I think you’ve lost your reputation and are angry from embarrassment!” Gu Yao mocked.
Qi Zhong had been a painter for decades and was always praised no matter where he went. This was the first time he was mocked in public. His face instantly turned red as he roared in exasperation, “You… You’re going too far! As a junior, she should respect her elders. It was her honor that I was willing to take her as my apprentice. What right does a newcomer like her have to refuse?”
At this moment, the surrounding people heard the commotion and gathered over.
“This young lady actually rejected Mr. Qi Zhong? She’s too arrogant!”
“I heard that this young lady is impatient and can’t even produce a complete work. However, Mr. Qi valued her talent and wanted to keep her by his side to train her. It’s just that this young lady doesn’t know what’s good for her!”
“The person speaking up for that young lady must be the second young master of the Gu family who was chased out by the Gu family! A hedonistic son like him will be abandoned by the family sooner or later!”
“How good can a woman who’s with such a good-for-nothing be?! There’s also Li Xing’er from the Li family. Although she’s the eldest daughter of the Li family, she’s far inferior to Miss Tang. She only knows how to eat, drink, and play all day. She’s ignorant and incompetent!”
Qi Zhong’s face darkened. “Ruge, let’s go!”
With that, Qi Zhong brought Tang Ruge to an elder with gray hair.
Li Xing’er was furious, but if she scolded him on such an occasion, she would definitely be called uneducated. Her reputation did not matter, but it would affect the entire Li family.
