Reincarnation Of The Businesswoman At School Book 2 Chapter 343
Gu Ning was his boss after all.
"Boss, don't worry. You'll always have my loyalty," Chen Darong said and promised with sincerity.
Gu Ning wouldn't trust a person unconditionally, but she was willing to give them a chance to prove themselves. All companies hired strangers to work for them. Without proof of time, it was impossible to know who was loyal and who wasn't. In fact, most people were hard working and upright.
After signing the contract, Gu Ning left. Leng Shaoting had been waiting for Gu Ning for three hours, but he was as patient as usual. Gu Ning on the other hand felt guilty and apologized, "I'm so sorry to make you wait for so long."
"It's nothing. You don't need to apologize," Leng Shaoting replied.
After that, Gu Ning told Leng Shaoting what just had happened in Xiangyun Antique-store. Leng Shaoting was surprised. "Grandpa Xu and Grandpa Jiang!"
Those two masters were Leng Weihua's best friends and had known Leng Shaoting since he was a child, thus Leng Shaoting felt close to them to some extent.
"When they left, they also told me that they have an old friend who loves paintings and calligraphy and reminded me to tell them first if I get any in the future. I thought that their old friend had to be Grandpa Leng," Gu Ning said.
"Indeed! They're grandpa's best friends, and Master Xu is Xu Jinchen's grandpa," Leng Shaoting said.
"What?" Gu Ning was astonished. What a coincidence! Master Xu turned out to be Xu Jinchen's grandpa.
It was almost 3 pm, but Gu Ning and Leng Shaoting didn't feel hungry.
Master Xu and Jiang Zhongyu arrived at the Leng Family's house later. Because it was daytime, the younger generation in the Leng Family either went to work or to meet friends, and only Master Leng was home.
It wasn't convenient for an old man to hang around outside, especially in the cold winter, so Master Leng stayed at home almost every day, which was quite boring. Therefore, when he heard that his best friends were coming, Master Leng was cheered up at once. He immediately told the housekeeper to prepare two cups of tea and waited in the living room.
"Leng! I have something good to show you!" Jiang Zhongyu said even before he walked inside, he couldn't wait to tell Master Leng with obvious pride.
Hearing that, Master Leng realized that they must be here to show off. All of a sudden, Master Leng seemed displeased. "Are you bringing something good to show me, or to show off?"
Master Leng hit the point, but Jiang Zhongyu wouldn't admit it. He complained in an aggrieved tone, "How could you say that! I just came to visit you and show you something good. If I kept it to myself, you'd blame me for hiding it. What should I do?"
"Stop it. Just let me have a look." Master Leng rolled his eyes at Jiang Zhongyu, and couldn't wait to see what he brought with him. They sat on the sofa, while the bodyguards placed the antiques on the table.
When the cloth was unwrapped, Master Leng rounded his eyes in shock seeing the bronze antiques. "These-these are a bronze dagger and bronze sword!"
"Ha-ha, yes! And they are both delicately made. Common bronze antiques are hardly comparable to them," Jiang Zhongyu said proudly.
"Where did you buy them?" Master Leng asked.
"Xiangyun Antique-store," Jiang Zhongyu replied.
Master Leng was irritated and complained, "Why didn't you tell me that you were going to the antique street? And now you're showing off in front of me! How can you do that to me!"
"You did the same thing the other night when you got Zhao Mengfu's Luo Shen Fu !" Jiang Zhongyu argued. Master Leng had called him that night, so he barely slept. If Master Leng had told him the next day during the daytime, he wouldn't have been rushed.
Master Leng didn't know how to retort.
"Ha-ha," Master Xu laughed. "Leng, we won't forget you. In fact, I went to Xiangyun Antique-store alone after I heard that it had a new boss. Unexpectedly, I found some good real antiques there. Xu is a bronze lover, so I told him to have a look, but we didn't see any paintings or calligraphy yet, so we didn't call you. However, I did tell its new boss to inform us first if she gets any famous paintings or calligraphy in the future."
Hearing that, Master Leng felt more comfortable.
Master Xu added, "We were really amazed by the new boss of Xiangyun Antique-store. Although we already knew that its new boss is a young girl, I didn't expect that she is only 18-years-old! She's pretty, able, mature and adorable. I think she's exactly right for Jinchen, so I plan to get Jinchen to chase her."
"Forget it! The girl is only 18-years-old, and Jinchen is too old for her. I think Ruining and her are exactly right for each other," Jiang Zhongyu argued.
Master Leng was also astonished that the new boss of Xiangyun Antique-store was only 18-years-old. Seeing that both Master Xu and Master Jiang thought highly of the young girl and even wanted her to be their granddaughter-in-law, Master Leng was quite curious about her. Although Leng Shaoting already had a girlfriend, Leng Shaomin was still single!
However, what they didn't know was that the young girl was precisely Leng Shaoting's girlfriend. If Leng Shaoting found out their plan, he wouldn't dare to punish the three masters, but Xu Jinchen and Leng Shaomin would be in danger.
After a short argument, they dropped the topic. Master Xu was also eager to see Luo Shen Fu . "Leng, let me have a look of Zhao Mengfu's Luo Shen Fu right now!" He wouldn't allow himself to miss such a great chance to see Luo Shen Fu .
Once Master Xu mentioned Luo Shen Fu , Master Leng was proud again. He told the housekeeper to fetch it.
"Let me be honest with you. In fact, Luo Shen Fu isn't a gift from Shaoting," Master Leng said like it was a big secret.
"Then who gave it to you?" Master Xu and Master Jiang were curious.
"Shaoting's girlfriend," Master Leng replied proudly.
