“Well, were not in school now.
You dont need to call me principal.
Just call me Grandpa Cai,” said Cai Qinghua.
He didnt care whether Gu Ning was absent from school, because he was already used to it.
In addition, it was Master Lengs birthday today.
If Gu Ning didnt come, it would be wrong!
“Grandpa Cai.” Gu Ning listened to him and greeted him politely, so Cai Qinghua was satisfied.
After that, the elders went to play Elephant chess and drink tea in Master Lengs study.
Leng Yuanqian and Leng Yuanzhen would stay to entertain Tang Yunfan.
And Leng Shaoting would take care of the young.
Actually, Zhan Zhiyin was the only young guest, and Leng Shaoming would look after her.
Gu Ning and Leng Shaoxi were willing to chat with Zhan Zhiyin, but they wanted to give Leng Shaoming a chance.
Leng Shaojia hid in the bedroom the entire time because she didnt want to see Gu Ning and the others.
Even though she knew that Gu Ning had saved her grandfather and father and she had little hostility towards Gu Ning now, they used to be bitter enemies.
It was hard to get over the unpleasant experiences, and Leng Shaojia didnt know how to get along with Gu Ning peacefully.
Therefore, she could only stay away and go down later.
It was early April and it was a sunny day, so it gradually warmed up.
All the young people were enjoying the sunshine, drinking tea, and chatting with each other in the gazebo.
Leng Shaoting had never spent time having fun with his cousins before, but now he began to enjoy himself.
He started showing his emotions more and was no longer as cold.
Although he still had a cold expression, he didnt seem as aloof and sometimes even showed kindness.
All in all, he didnt scare people now.
Gu Ning, Leng Shaoxun, Leng Shaoxi and Zhan Zhiyin were playing cards.
Leng Shaoting sat next to Gu Ning and watched Gu Ning play, while Leng Shaoming sat by Zhan Zhiyin and taught her how to play every now and then because she wasnt very good at it.
Because they were playing with the cousins, Gu Ning wouldnt use her Jade Eyes.
However, she still had good luck and kept winning.
The losers needed to drink tea every time they lost, so the other three people were quickly filled with tea.
“Gu Ning, you are unbelievably lucky! Weve played about twenty rounds, but youve only lost twice!” Leng Shaoxi exclaimed.

“Right, were already full of tea now.” Leng Shaoxun complained.
Zhan Zhiyin didnt care much because she only lost four times.
“I know youre jealous of my good luck.” Gu Ning beamed with satisfaction.
“Alright, Im done!” Leng Shaoxun gave in, because he lost most of the time and he badly needed to go to the washroom.
“Fine, we can stop now,” said Gu Ning.
They had played cards for a long time, and it had gotten boring.
When it was almost 3 pm, Xu Jinchen came with Zi Beiying.
Although outsiders werent invited, Zi Beiying wasnt an outsider, so she could come.
After Zi Beiying came, the girls left their men and went to have fun, while the men continued to talk in the gazebo.
However, Leng Shaoting couldnt take his eyes from Gu Ning, and Xu Jinchen couldnt stand it any longer.
He directly walked in front of Leng Shaoting and blocked his gaze.
You havent been separated for long.
Do you have to stare at Gu Ning the entire time”
Hearing that, Leng Shaoting said nothing, nor did he get mad.
Leng Shaoxun said instead, “Shaoting is deeply in love with Gu Ning.
I never see you do the same thing to your girl.
Dont you love her as much”
He wasnt picking on Xu Jinchen, but he felt a bit confused.
Upon hearing that, Xu Jinchen explained loudly.
“How is it possible Dont talk nonsense! We were just together, so I dont think its necessary to look at her the entire time.”
He didnt want to be misunderstood that he didnt love Zi Beiying very much, since it could damage their relationship.
“Oh.” Leng Shaoxun nodded, but still put on a meaningful look, which angered Xu Jinchen.
“What Dont you believe me” asked Xu Jinchen.
“I said nothing.” Leng Shaoxun blinked innocently.
Xu Jinchen was struck dumb for a second.
Although Leng Shaoxun denied it and looked sincere, he felt it was a perfunctory reply.
Anyway, since Leng Shaoxun denied it, he couldnt say anything about that, or it would make him seem guilty.
He wasnt guilty, only slightly worried.
Zi Beiying and Leng Shaoxi had only met twice before.
They werent familiar.
Zi Beiying had never seen Zhan Zhiyin before, so Gu Ning made introductions between them.
Even though women could easily get jealous of each other, Zi Beiying and the other girls were different.
They were Gu Nings friends and they were all very kind.
Moreover, there wasnt a gap between them.
They had basically the same family background, appearance, and even build.
Only Gu Ning was more outstanding, but they admired her so they werent jealous of her.
Gu Ning was the youngest, but they subconsciously saw her as their leader and asked her about everything.
“Youre always busy.
Whenever I want to share a meal with you, I can never see you.
Youre always working, but I still need to thank you for letting me stay in your house for so long.
I wanted to buy you a meal, but I didnt think you had time.
Anyway, I moved to my own house a few days ago.
If you have time, we can have a meal together at my place to celebrate.
You must come, or Ill be mad.
I specially waited for you to have free time,” said Zi Beiying.
She was complaining about Gu Ning, but wasnt really blaming her.
She knew Gu Ning was really busy.
Most importantly, she wanted Gu Ning to join them, so she waited until Gu Ning was free.
“Sure, Ill see when I am free.
If I have time, Ill let you know in advance,” said Gu Ning.
If other people invited her to have a meal, she might not attach much importance to the invitation, but her friend moved to a new house, so she had to take it seriously.
In addition, her friend specially waited for her to be free.
