Lady Gu Is Too Weak To Fend For Herself - Chapter 768
Cui Xian quickly turned around and asked the person in charge excitedly, “This artist… Do they have an apprentice? I want to take them as my master. I wonder if they’re willing?”
When Mr. Fu heard this, he hurriedly added, “Me too! Count me in. Ask them if they’re willing to take in two disciples.”
The person in charge: “???”
Was there a mistake?! It turned out that these two top figures in the oil painting world who had been discussing for a long time had no intention of taking in an apprentice but wanted to acknowledge this painter as their master?
Everyone gasped. These two national treasures were going to acknowledge someone as their master just because they saw one painting? Moreover, they did not know who the other party was.
Mr. Fu hurriedly explained, “Actually, you don’t have to be surprised. This artist’s standard is completely above mine and Old Cui’s. Our painting skills stopped improving 20 years ago. We urgently need someone to help us break through this plateau so we can create more perfect paintings. We came to the exhibition to see if we could meet such an outstanding artist. Now that we’ve finally met one, of course, we have to acknowledge the painter as our master!”
Qi Zhong’s mouth was wide open as he looked at this scene in disbelief. He then looked at the painting in fascination. It was indeed perfect. It was to the point of making one go crazy.
Although he was very jealous of this artist, he had to admit that this painting was indeed perfect. He hoped that this artist could help his master have a breakthrough.
The person in charge looked at Qi Zhong meaningfully. ‘Didn’t you just have a fight with Miss Han Yin? Why did you change your attitude so quickly?’
Seeing that the person in charge did not respond for a long time, Cui Xian was instantly anxious. “Mr. Charlie, ever since you became the person in charge of the International Oil Painting Exhibition, I’ve never refused your invitation to attend. Even when I was in poor health, I would force myself to come. On the account of our many years of friendship, can you help me get into contact with this artist? I can ask her in person. If she’s really unwilling, I won’t force her anymore.
“I’ve lived to this age. Glory, money, and fame don’t matter to me anymore. I just want to surpass my plateau and paint a perfect painting. It’ll also bring a perfect end to my life. I only have one wish. If I can’t fulfill it, I’ll regret it for the rest of my life!”
The person in charge was very touched by his words.
People like Mr. Cui and Mr. Fu were true painters. They never cared about money, fame, or fortune. They just wanted to paint perfect paintings.
They were already top figures in the oil painting world, but they were still willing to beg for a master in front of everyone. It was enough to show their sincerity.
The person in charge said awkwardly, “But… Mr. Cui, your apprentice might not agree.”
Qi Zhong instantly gasped. What did this have to do with him? Hence, he asked with a puzzled expression, “Mr. Charlie, what do you mean? Why would I object?”
The person in charge had a subtle look in his eyes. “What if you have a grudge against the artist of this painting?”
Qi Zhong slowly looked up and saw his master’s and Mr. Fu’s murderous gazes. His body instantly trembled as he said, “That’d certainly be my fault! I’m willing to lower my head and admit my mistake! I hope this painter can help my two seniors fulfill their wishes!”
At this moment, Qiao Xi was standing in a corner. She raised her head at Gu Yao. “Do you see that?”
Gu Yao was shocked and nodded obediently. Sister-in-law was too awesome! The two seniors had only taken one look at her painting and were already fighting to acknowledge her as their master.
Then, Qiao Xi brought Li Xing’er and Gu Yao forward. The person in charge looked at Qiao Xi and could not say anything. If he told the two seniors that the person they wanted to acknowledge as their master was a 20-year-old woman, would they still be able to accept it?
Was this what it meant for a student to surpass the master? Her skills were something these two seniors could never reach in their lives. Meanwhile, she was only a 20-year-old woman. This was really too shocking!
The person in charge was in a difficult position. Unexpectedly, Qi Zhong saw Qiao Xi in the next second and shouted, “Qiao Xi! Why are you here again?!
“Don’t you have any shame?! I’ve already said that I definitely won’t accept you as my apprentice. Why did you still come looking for me? You didn’t know how to appreciate my kindness back then. It’s too late to regret now!”
Tang Ruge also looked helpless. “Xi Xi, stop fooling around! Mr. Cui and Mr. Fu want to acknowledge a painter as their masters. Don’t disturb them!”
Qi Zhong continued to mock, “It’s fine that you’re impatient, but you’re also so arrogant. I want to see who in the entire oil painting world is willing to take you as their apprentice.”
