Chapter 748: Art Exhibition
Lu Jingye only came back when it was almost midnight.
Zi Yi was already asleep by the time he came into the bedroom, but when she felt a familiar bodying lying down next to her, she automatically rolled into his arms.
Lu Jingye kissed her forehead and asked softly, “Did I wake you up?”
“No.” Even though Zi Yi said that, her voice sounded sleepy and her eyes were closed shut without a sign of them opening soon.
Lu Jingye looked at her funnily and kissed her on the forehead again. At the same time, he gently patted her back. “Sleep.”
Zi Yi put her arm on his chest and asked in a soft and waxy voice, “Why are you back so late?”
“I have to listen to the summary reports of all the departments at the end of the year so that’s why I returned later than usual.”
“Ohh, you’ve worked hard.”
Zi Yi raised her head with her eyes closed, wanting to give him a kiss on the forehead, which can be considered as a reward.
Lu Jingye was amused by her appearance and after she raised her head, he automatically kissed her on the lips.
When their lips touched, Zi Yi patted him on the chest in satisfaction and said, “Ah Jing, goodnight.”
By the time Zi Yi woke up the next day, Lu Jingye had already gotten up very early.
She looked at the time. It was 7 a.m.
She washed up and went downstairs.
The Lu father and sons just so happened to walk in from the front door and Mrs. Lu said to Lu Jingye, “Yiyi is still sleeping, don’t shower in your bedroom. Just wash up in the guest room downstairs in case you disturb her.”
Lu Jingye looked up at Zi Yi who had walked to the top of the stairs.
Zi Yi sweetly called out. “Dad, Mom.”
Mrs. Lu turned and looked at her as she said with a smile, “Yiyi, why didn’t you get some more sleep?”
“I’ve already had enough sleep.”
Lu Jianlin and Lu Yunxiao went to take a shower first.
Zi Yi went downstairs and came to Lu Jingye. Looking at him wearing a sleeveless singlet, she poked his arm with her finger and asked, “Are you not cold?”
“Nope.” Lu Jingye held her hand with his wide hands and let her feel the heat coming from his palms.
He was indeed rather warm.
Zi Yi pushed him and said, “Quick, go take a shower. Mom and I will wait for you to eat breakfast.”
Lu Jingye headed upstairs, while Zi Yi and Mrs. Lu headed to the dining room.
Mrs. Lu first poured a cup of milk for Zi Yi when they sat down at the table. “It’s likely to snow today. When we go out later, you should wear a few more layers.”
“Got it, Mom.”
Mrs. Lu will also be visiting their art exhibition today with Zi Yi and after breakfast, the four of them made their way to the art gallery.
The art gallery would open its doors at 10 a.m. in the morning.
It was still 8 a.m. and by the time they arrived there, the whole of the Dou Family had already arrived.
Other than the Dou Family, Ian was also there.
The Dou Family was a large family and Ian did not panic upon seeing so many people at once. Instead, he used his gentlemanly demeanor and conquered all the women of the Dou Family.
Other than Dou Xiangling, a few other cousins of hers were all chatting with him.
When Zi Yi came in, everyone focused their attention on Lu Yunxiao’s face.
After greeting each other, Mrs. Lu smiled and introduced Lu Yunxiao to them. “This is my youngest son, Yunxiao.”
Lu Yunxiao gave them a nod.
The Dou Family had heard of Lu Yunxiao and they did not mind his cold attitude at all.
The Third Madam even said with a smile, “The two brothers really do look alike.”
Dou Yue’er who was standing next to Dou Xiangling covered her mouth and started acting like a fangirl. “Oh heavens, Brother Yunxiao is so cool and handsome!”
Dou Yurui was also staring at Lu Yunxiao and she was obviously trying to stop herself from fangirling like Dou Yue’er.
Everyone was looking at Dou Yue’er and she ended up being somewhat embarrassed and hastily covered her face.
Her actions made everyone laugh.
After they had their fill of laughter, everyone started discussing how they were going to receive the guests, soon everyone had been assigned a task.
Zi Yi was assigned to accompany Elder Dou.
Zi Yi gladly took the job and she directly went over and held Elder Dou’s arm. “Grandpa, I’ll take you around to feel the wonderful aura of the combination of art and the modern technology of our art gallery.”
Elder Dou said cheerfully, “Sure. It’s been 10 years since I visited Elder Bai’s art exhibition. Elder Bai’s art exhibition was…”
While they chatted, the both of them headed to one side.
“Elder Dou wasn’t the Chairman of the Painting and Calligraphy Association back then, but his paintings were really vivid. He had won plenty of international awards and after all these years, I still remember one of the paintings he painted at that time named ‘Sharp Edge’. Just the sight of the painting made my blood start boiling.”
“Grandpa, are you referring to this painting?”
As soon as Zi Yi said that, she snapped her finger in the air and a painting floated over. Subsequently, a nearly transparent wall moved over and stopped on their left side. The painting was then hung on a near-transparent wall and the wall turned into a scene that complemented the painting.
At the sight of this, Elder Dou revealed a shocked expression and he got excited.
“Yes, that’s the painting. Now that I see it again, it makes my blood boil even more… Did you design this type of background wall?”
Elder Dou nodded approvingly. “Not bad, not bad. It’s very creative. But can all the walls inside here move?”
“All of them can more or less move around and we’ve used load-bearing columns all around the art gallery.”
Zi Yi then explained to Elder Dou about the materials used for these walls. “We can use any kind of scenery we want and that way it can better express the artistic concept each painting is trying to show. Moreover, we also prepared a site for painters to create their work on the spot.”
Speaking of this, Zi Yi led Elder Dou over to the space.
It was a large open space and it did not seem to be anything special.
Zi Yi snapped her fingers in the air once again and the lights turned on. A semi-circular transparent wall appeared and after the wall and the floor were connected, an ancient scene appeared along with the sound of a melodious flute.
“Good, it’s good!”
Elder Dou nodded and praised. He was clearly liking this design.
Zi Yi said, “Other than this scene, we also have other scenes installed, such as oriental scenes or western scenarios.”
Subsequently, Zi Yi brought Elder Dou to check out the other places and their paintings.
At half-past nine, there were already guests who started coming in, this meant that the art gallery opened earlier than expected.
The guests were all professors from the School of Fine Arts and the Dou Family members started to receive them.
Subsequently, some other individuals with their invitations continuously came in one after another.
At 9:45 a.m.
Suddenly a large group of reporters arrived outside the art gallery.
Other than the reporters, there were also painting enthusiasts and some other bosses.
“Why are there so many people?” Dou Yurui who was standing next to Dou Xiangling asked, “Fourth Sister, have all these people been invited by you?”
“They haven’t been.” Dou Xiangling shook her head. “We didn’t invite them at all.”
The First Madam heard their conversation and slightly frowned as she looked worried. “Today is the opening day of your art gallery and it wouldn’t be good to stop them from coming inside. However, there are so many reporters here and there will definitely be some people without manners among them. What should we do if they ask some random questions?”
