Chapter 96 Return gift

But, hadn’t little sister just accepted master as her teacher? Moreover, senior brother was such a cold person, when did she become so close to him?

Chen Gaoyu looked at Mu Xuan Qing and actually noticed that at some point a little smile had appeared in his eyes.

“….”

Chen Gaoyu was a little surprised. Having met with his senior brother several times, this was the first time he had seen him reveal his true emotions.

Little senior sister was really….

Truly extraordinary.

Bai Xiuqi just kept on smiling as he watched his three disciples fooling around in front of him, finding it very amusing. He only wished that this scene could keep on happening in front of him…

Just as he was thinking this, he saw Gu Qing Yu place two bags on the table. The moment she opened them, three people present were stunned.

Apart from painting, Bai Xiuqi’s greatest interest was raising flowers, especially all kinds of expensive flowers, among which his favourite was orchids. From time to time, people would send him orchids of good quality, and when Mu Ai’s mother brought her daughter to the house for guidance, she also given him a pot of expensive orchids worth millions of yuan.

That pot has always been one of Bai Xiuqi’s favorite flowers. He had sold a lot of his paintings for a huge sum of money, yet had spent the majority of it on flowers. However he had never seen such good looking orchids before and, it was such a rare red colour, so brilliant and eye-catching…. the yellow was also of equally excellent quality, elegant and fragrant….

Not only did Bai Xiuqi freeze, Chen Gaoyu was also somewhat speechless as well.

Probably because he had been with his master for almost twenty years, Chen Gaoyu had studied orchids and, under Bai Xiuqi’s influence, had also raised some orchids. He didn’t specifically search for varieties, but seeing such orchids of excellent quality, he couldn’t help but be pleased.

The most calm of the three was Mu Xuan Qing. Actually, he had sent many of Bai Xiuqi’s orchids to him, so he was quite aware of how rare and expensive orchids of this quality were, which was why he was surprised.

As far as he knew, Gu Qing Yu didn’t have much savings right? Gu Wen Qiang was quite generous to her, but a girl always needed to buy this or buy that, so she shouldn’t have much money left, or at least, it would be a bit of a struggle to buy two pots of orchids of this quality at once.

Besides, she had only been out for ten minutes. Would ten minutes be enough time to find two such good orchids?

Unless she had planted them herself and simply had them delivered or went to get them, that would be possible.

But as far as he knew, the Gu family didn’t grow any flowers, because that Mrs. Gu who had been imprisoned had hay fever, so there were no flowers in the Gu family’s yard at all. Gu Qing Yu did have flowers on the windowsill of her own room, but he remembered that they were just ordinary jasmine flowers.

Of course Gu Qing Yu didn’t know that the two pots of flowers she casually brought out had caused such a big shock to the three people present. She just smiled and said, “A return gift! Master, second senior brother, thank you for the meeting gift!”

Bai Xiuqi finally came back to his senses and looked at her, “Girl, where did you get this orchid from? You didn’t get it from your family, did you? That won’t do, people who can grow orchids so well definitely love flowers, if you take them away rashly, you’ll break the heart of the person who is nurturing them.”

Bai Xiuqi really deserved his good reputation. Gu Qing Yu could see how much he loved the two pots of flowers, yet for her sake, he could say such things.

Chen Gaoyu also came back to his senses then, nodding repeatedly, “Yes, little sister, if they are from your family, you can’t give it to us. We are the elders, it’s right to give you a meeting gift, but you’re still young, so there’s no need for you to give anything in return.”
