She certainly knew what the meal was like.
It was a private meeting only between them.
That afternoon Gu Ning gathered her friends to have the lunch together.
It was on An Yi.
An Yi and Hao Ran were friends already and got along very well with each other.
“An Yi, I heard your familys company has been bought, but your father is still the chairman,” Hao Ran said with care.
“Yes, but my father didnt tell me the details.
Anyway, Shenghua survived and my father remained in his position.
I dont care if my father earns less money.
I just want us to live a peaceful life,” An Yi said.
He didnt care who the owner of Shenghua was now.
He felt satisfied with his life.
Although he had no idea who the owner was, he was thankful to the person in his heart.
An Yi valued family above money, which impressed Gu Ning.
“Well, Gu Ning, can I join your group I want to learn kung fu too.” An Yi looked to Gu Ning.
He was a little shy, but full of anticipation.
“No problem!” Gu Ning didnt refuse, because she had the intention to let An Yi be the successor to An Guangyaos job so it was necessary to train him earlier.
Of course, it all depended on An Yi himself.
If he wasnt willing to do so, Gu Ning wouldnt force him.
For An Guangyaos sake, Gu Ning said yes.
Since An Yi was now a part of them, he joined their WeChat group too.
Gu Ning didnt attend the evening class, so their training time was set in the afternoon.
After lunch, they went to the woods together.
On the way, they coincidentally met those boys who had beaten An Yi the other day.
The minute they saw An Yi, Gu Ning and the others, they turned around, escaping away.
Hao Ran and the others couldnt help laughing out loud.
Those boys had learned their lesson.
“Oh, boss, my uncles sixtieth birthday is the day after tomorrow.
My cousin Yifan invited you all to come have fun,” Qin Zixun said.
Yes, it was Qin Yifan who invited them.
Qin Zixun wasnt qualified enough to invite people to attend his uncles birthday.
Actually, Qin Yifan wanted to invite them himself to show his sincerity, but he was worried it would be too abrupt, so he let Qin Zixun do it.
He couldnt only invite Gu Ning, which would be embarrassing.
Thus he invited all of them.
“I dont think thats a good idea,” Gu Ning declined.
She wasnt close with Qin Yifan after all, but to be honest, Gu Ning really wanted to attend the birthday party.
The Qin Family was the second-tier super-rich family.
There would be many celebrities and important businessmen at the birthday party.
It was the best place to build her network.
In addition, most of the guests went to the party for networking.
Although she was young, and probably no one would chat with her, her presence was meaningful.
Hao Ran and Tianping will go too.
Weve sent invitation letters to Mu Ke and An Yis family already.
And now let me and my older brother invite you three girls to come.
Just come and have fun with us,” Qin Zixun persuaded.
“Come on, boss.
Come with us! Mixi and Peihan, you both must come too,” Hao Ran added.
“Ningning, I want to go to the party.
Just come along with us!” Chu Peihan grasped Gu Nings arm.
Chu Peihan would never miss a party.
As for Yu Mixi, if Gu Ning went to the party, she would go with her.
“Alright! Then lets go together,” Gu Ning answered.
Never the less, she couldnt go with empty hands.
What kind of gift should she send
Chu Peihan pulled Gu Ning and Yu Mixi away using the excuse that they needed to go to the washroom.
“What kind of gift should we send” Chu Peihan asked.
She completely had no idea about gifts.
Most importantly, the host was an important figure so the gift had to be special, but they were merely students.
They couldnt afford expensive gifts.
Gu Ning knew that Master Qin liked jade.
Ordinary jade wasnt suitable to be used as a gift, but she wasnt willing to send him a high-level one.
And it wasnt appropriate for her to be so high-profile.
She was a student after all.
It was very tricky.
After a while, Gu Ning thought of those antiques that she had bought in City G.
Since she couldnt send expensive gifts, Shen Wansans teapot and Wu Guanzhongs painting werent the options.
She then only had the glass with deer heads from the Qianlong period.
Thus Gu Ning decided to send Master Qin the glass.
It was worth around two million yuan, which was a lot for her as a student.
“Oh, I have a suitable gift.
We can send it under all our names,” Gu Ning said.
She didnt mind sharing the gift with her friends at all.
“Please dont do that,” Yu Mixi said.
“Why not Were students.
It wont be appropriate if we send a gift that is too expensive.
Mine is the best choice.
Its not very expensive, but rare,” Gu Ning explained.
What is it” Knowing that, Chu Peihan and Yu Mixi were curious.
“Its a secret for now,” Gu Ning said.
“Please, just tell us!” Chu Peihan was impatient with curiosity.
Gu Ning wouldnt tell them no matter how much they asked.
Chu Peihan had to give up in the end.
The news that Gu Xiaoxiao had been expelled went abroad in the afternoon, but no one felt sorry for her.
Even Chen Ziyao who was Gu Xiaoxiaos best friend denied her close connection with Gu Xiaoxiao.
When others came to her and asked her whether she had been aware of Gu Xiaoxiaos scheme, she denied it.
She said that she and Gu Xiaoxiao only seemed close, but they didnt get along well.
Gu Xiaoxiao never told her anything private.
Chen Ziyao also claimed that she was disappointed at Gu Xiaoxiaos behavior.
Actually, Chen Ziyao was only disappointed that Gu Xiaoxiao had failed.
Many students knew that Chen Ziyao hated Gu Ning, so they barely believed her words.
Besides, most of the students secretly kept a distance away from Chen Ziyao.
They were worried that she would do the same thing as Gu Xiaoxiao.
Chen Ziyao knew the reason why she was alienated.
She was mad, but she blamed Gu Xiaoxiao for it.
