Ye Mu Fan seemed a little drunk. His eyes filled with ridicule as he sneered in a low voice, "Tsk, protect? Just you alone? How are you going to protect... our family's done for... everything ended long ago... everything's gone..."
Right now, they had nothing at all, so what could they use to fight second uncle's family? How could they take back what was theirs...?
Tsk... she's so naive...
After Ye Mu Fan spoke, the table entered a silence once again.
At this moment, gasps of amazement suddenly resounded from the main table.
Immediately, all the guests turned towards the main table.
Ye Yiyi and Gu Yue Ze had taken out a calligraphy painting and were about to unroll it.
The words on the painting had a simple and unadorned vibe, but it looked like it could suck viewers into the painting and let them experience the scenery from long-ago, first-hand.
Ye Hong Wei stared at the painting for a long time and a trace of astonishment appeared in his eyes.
At the main table, a few of the elders who were passionate about calligraphy painting immediately jumped up and stood next to Ye Hong Wei. After they inspected the painting, each of them gasped in amazement.
"It's amazing! This is really the writings of Mei Jing Zhou, great master Mei!" an old man exclaimed excitedly.
At the bottom of the painting was the genuine seal of Mei Jing Zhou.
"Autumn Dusk in the Mountain?" Ye Hong Wei couldn't shift his gaze away from the calligraphy painting.
Ye Hong Wei was passionate about calligraphy and painting antiques. Calligraphy painting was at the top of his list of favorites. Currently, the person he admired most was the national treasure and painter, great master Mei Jing Zhou.
Every calligraphy painting by Mei Jing Zhou had an extraordinarily high value; there was nobody in the entire country who could surpass him.
"Grandpa, this is indeed Autumn Dusk in the Mountain," Ye Yiyi said softly.
"Grandpa, Yiyi knew you loved great master Mei's calligraphy painting and after numerous tries, she managed to obtain this painting from great master Mei." Gu Yue Ze laughed.
Not long ago, Gu Yue Ze used his status in Gu Group and his father's name to request this painting. Initially, he wanted to get great master Mei to appear at this banquet but it was a pity, great master Mei was really hard to invite and only said he would consider coming without giving him a definite answer.
At first, Gu Yue Ze and Ye Yiyi were still somewhat hopeful but great master Mei hadn't given them a reply up til now.
"It must've been hard for you, Yiyi," Ye Hong Wei looked at Ye Yiyi with an adoring gaze.
"As long as grandpa likes it, Yiyi's perfectly content," Ye Yiyi replied.
"This is the greatest surprise that grandpa received today and also my favorite birthday gift. Good children, very thoughtful of the both of you," Ye Hong Wei smiled.
At this moment, housekeeper Huang Ming Kun rushed to Ye Yiyi's side and whispered a few words into her ear.
Ye Yiyi's face was filled with surprise.
Huang Ming Kun just told her that great master Mei had come personally with a gift.
"Yue Ze... great master Mei is here!" Ye Yiyi pulled Gu Yue Ze to the side and said excitedly.
Hearing that, Gu Yue Ze was slightly taken aback and asked in disbelief, "Great master Mei really came?"
"En..." Ye Yiyi nodded. "He just reached the house and will be here soon."
At this moment, Gu Yue Ze looked at Ye Yiyi and said with a gentle smile, "I already said there wouldn't be a problem."
Ye Yiyi was filled with happiness as she looked into Gu Yue Ze's eyes with admiration. "It's all thanks to uncle's reputation!"
With that said, everyone in the hall turned their gaze to the back with a swish.
A certain elderly man around 60 years old dressed in a grey and white Tang suit strode into the hall with his assistant.
"Is it really the man himself?"
"Mei Jing Zhou... great master Mei?!"
All the artistes from Emperor Sky were completely dumbfounded.
