Lady Gu Is Too Weak To Fend For Herself - Chapter 767
Gu Yao lowered his head and suppressed the anger in his heart. “Qiao Xi, it’s my fault…”
He felt that he had implicated Qiao Xi. Otherwise, those people would not think that it was Qiao Xi’s fault.
Qiao Xi patted his shoulder and comforted him. “It’s not your fault. Let’s go.”
“Of course, we’re going to take revenge! Some people like to look for trouble. Since that’s the case, I’ll fulfill their wish!” Qiao Xi smiled slyly. “I’ve always been a person who doesn’t offend others unless they offend me. Since someone insists on acting atrociously in front of me, I’ll tell them the price for going against me!”
Originally, Qiao Xi did not want to bicker with these two people, but Tang Ruge and Qi Zhong just had to come in front of her to disgust her. Since that was the case, she could not blame them for being merciless!
On the other hand, Qi Zhong rushed to Cui Xian in a hurry. His expression softened a little. “Master, I’m late.”
Originally, Cui Xian had agreed to meet them in the front hall of the art exhibition, but they were five minutes late. Hence, Tang Ruge muttered softly, “If it weren’t for Qiao Xi arguing with us, we wouldn’t be late.”
At the mention of Qiao Xi, Qi Zhong burned with rage. “That woman is really shameless. It’s fine that she doesn’t work hard, but she’s always thinking of crooked methods! It was her honor that I was willing to take her as my apprentice, but she actually refused!”
Tang Ruge comforted him softly. “Master, don’t be angry. Your health is important. Xi Xi is unruly and unwilling to be under others. When she suffers in the future, she’ll know how good a master you are!”
Cui Xian looked up and glanced at the two of them coldly. In reality, he did not like Qi Zhong, his apprentice. Back then, he thought that Qi Zhong was talented and might succeed in the future. However, he played many tricks behind his back.
Now that he was old, he did not want to cause trouble anymore. He could only let Qi Zhong fool around.
Cui Xian walked around but did not see Han Ye or Han Yin. He wanted to say goodbye to the person in charge. The next second, he suddenly glared at the painting in the person in charge’s hand.
Cui Xian immediately rushed over with his walking cane. “Wait!”
His shout scared the person in charge so much that he almost threw the painting away. “Mr. Cui, you’re…”
Cui Xian was extremely excited, and his beard trembled. He could actually see such a perfect painting in his lifetime? He had been pursuing such a mastery his entire life, but he still could not reach this height.
This painting was very similar to Han Yin’s style, but compared to her previous paintings, this one had a more settled and special style.
Cui Xian specially looked at the back of the painting. There was no signature. This skilled painter was probably unwilling to reveal their name. Their identity must be special.
He had previously heard that Han Yin’s grandfather was also an outstanding oil painter. She had learned oil painting from her grandfather, so their styles had always been somewhat similar. Could it be that this painting was her grandfather’s work?
Cui Xian’s body trembled slightly as he asked excitedly, “Who’s the creator of this painting? Are… Are they at the scene?”
The person in charge nodded. “Yes! She even sent two works to the exhibition.”
Cui Xian’s old eyes were filled with hope. He did not expect to meet such an expert in his lifetime. Now that this painter was here at the scene, he had to seize this opportunity.
The person in charge asked hesitantly, “Mr. Cui, you… Do you want to take this artist as your apprentice?”
Hearing this, Qi Zhong and Tang Ruge were dumbfounded. Their eyes were filled with disbelief. What kind of painting could make Cui Xian so excited that he decided to take the other party as his apprentice with just one look?
Cui Xian had painted his entire life and was famous internationally. If one could catch his eye, one’s future would definitely be bright. Moreover, with a top painter like him as one’s teacher, one would be respected no matter where one went.
Tang Ruge looked at the painting with jealousy. What right did a person who did not even want to leave their name on their painting have to be Cui Xian’s apprentice?
Everyone also came forward and sized up the painting. Qi Zhong came forward to take a look as well. His body instantly trembled. This painting was indeed perfect. No wonder his master had decided to take this painter as his apprentice.
Cui Xian hurriedly called his other friends over to admire the painting. Everyone exclaimed, “Who drew this?! It’s too perfect! This charm and skill are definitely that of an expert!”
The person who was praising the painting was surnamed Fu, and he was also a famous painter. The two old men held hands tightly and trembled in excitement. “Old Fu! I’ve finally found the person I’ve been looking for!”
