Chapter 91 Little junior sister
Moreover, when he spoke to her, his face was filled with helplessness. This girl was teasing him very mischievously, but he wasn’t angry or repulsed at all…
Bai Xiuqi was somewhat relieved.
He was relieved.
He had thought that Mu Xuan Qing, this child who made his heart break too much would have to be alone for the rest of his life. He had endured so much, and had done so much good for the country and the people over the years, but for some special reason had to close himself off and be alone all the time…
The first time he had seen him after so many years, Bai Xiuqi had been a little sad for him.
It didn’t matter if he changed back to his old self, it didn’t matter if he still painted or not, he just hoped that Mu Xuan Qing could find someone who understood him and who he could accept to keep him company and not be alone all the time…..
Moreover, this little girl was pretty and enthusiastic. When she heard Mu Xuan Qing’s words, she jumped off him and greeted him with a smile, “Hello, Mr. Bai!”
Bai Xiuqi nodded his head repeatedly. It was probably because he had liked Gu Qing Yu’s paintings, but now the more he looked at her, the more he liked her.
“You’re a good painter.” he said with a smile.
Gu Qing Yu nodded without any modesty, “Thank you.”
“Would you be interested in becoming my disciple?” Bai Xiuqi asked.
Gu Qing Yu blinked, then realised the difference between a ‘disciple’ and a ‘student’. Bai Xiuqi had many students, even just the ones he had taught when he was invited to be a visiting professor at the Imperial University of Fine Arts some years ago, and many of the people he had instructed were his students. However, Bai Xiuqi’s disciples were only two; one of them was very mysterious and no longer seemed to paint, but his earlier paintings sold for high prices in the market, and now there was no amount of money that could buy them at all.
The other one was the organizer of this competition, the president of the Chinese Art Association.
So, Mu Xuan Qing was the mysterious disciple of Bai Xiuqi?
Gu Qing Yu was a bit surprised. She hadn’t expected that Mu Xuan Qing was also a painter, and that he could paint quite well.
She smiled, looking at him, “If I accept him as my master, do I have to call you Senior Brother?”
Mu Xuan Qing’s heart moved. When Bai Xiuqi had mentioned his intention to take Gu Qing Yu as his disciple, he hadn’t thought up to this level, but….
Having such a cute little junior sister, seemed…
To not be a bad thing either.
He swallowed, but the expression on his face didn’t change, “Teacher Bai doesn’t accept students easily, but his Chinese painting is very good so if you are interested, you can consider it.”
After all, Gu Qing Yu was painting oil paintings this time, so he wasn’t sure if she had studied or was interested in Chinese painting.
Although Bai Xiuqi was also a good painter, he was most proficient in Chinese painting.
Gu Qing Yu looked at Bai Xiuqi, “Won’t Mr. Bai check to see how my Chinese painting is before speaking?”
Bai Xiuqi smiled, “As long as you’re interested, you’ll be able to paint well.”
After all, what he valued wasn’t her skills, but the feeling her paintings conveyed. Since oil painting could convey her world so well, so could Chinese painting, all she needed was a few pointers on technique and more painting.
Gu Qing Yu smiled, “Alright then, I’ll take you as my teacher!”
Bai Xiuqi smiled, liking Gu Qing Yu’s straightforwardness.
He winked at Mu Xuan Qing, “Xuan Qing, you have a little sister now, what do you plan to give your her as a welcome gift?”
