After a long time, Ye Hong Wei's eyes finally left the two paintings. He couldn't hold back as he exclaimed, "Mr. Mei's works are truly eye-openers, amazing... amazing!"
"This painting is called Heaven and Earth--the dragon protects the heavens, and the tiger protects the Earth. It looks like two separate paintings but actually, if you put them together, it becomes one entire art piece." Mei Jing Zhou smiled.
"Heaven and Earth... the dragon is the king of the Heavens, the tiger guards the Earth... great name!"
The group of elders started commenting.
"Mr. Ye, I'm giving these two paintings as a birthday gift to you. I hope you'll accept them," Mei Jing Zhou said.
"This... is too much..." Although Ye Hong Wei was exceptionally happy, he naturally had to refuse this expensive gift.
"Mr. Ye, you're too kind. They're just some works I did while I was bored. I'm happy as long as you like it," Mei Jing Zhou laughed.
"Grandpa, this is a token of appreciation from great master Mei. You should accept it!" Ye Yiyi said.
Hearing that, Ye Hong Wei nodded, "Alright... thank you so much for the nice gift, Mr. Mei!"
At that moment, everyone in the hall was flabbergasted--this Ye Yiyi and Gu Yue Ze seriously gave the most impressive gift tonight.
Not only did they give him the painting "Autumn Dusk in the Mountain," they even invited Mei Jing Zhou himself who then gave Ye Hong Wei another painting, "Heaven and Earth"...
Ye Hong Wei looked at Ye Yiyi with an adoring gaze--his granddaughter, Ye Yiyi, had given him too many surprises during the banquet tonight.
"Old Ye, it's a huge blessing to have such an obedient granddaughter like Yiyi."
"Haha, I really didn't expect her to invite great master Mei over to celebrate your birthday..."
"No one can deny that Yiyi and Gu Yue Ze put a lot of effort into this."
Hearing the praise from the guests at the main table, Ye Hong Wei obviously enjoyed every bit of it.
Ye Yiyi laughed gently, "We, as the younger generation, have to do our best to get whatever grandpa likes."
After Mei Jing Zhou finished toasting Ye Hong Wei, everyone wanted to step forward and talk to him, but he turned and started walking in another direction.
Not far off, Ye Wanwan watched this scene calmly. She noticed Mei Jing Zhou had turned around and his eyes met hers then he started walking towards her.
"Miss Wanwan, I trust you've been well since we last met," Mei Jing Zhou quickly reached Ye Wanwan with a smile on his face.
Seeing that Mei Jing Zhou was suddenly speaking to her, Ye Wanwan was stunned.
You've been well since we last met?
She hadn't met Mei Jing Zhou before. Furthermore, she wasn't even in the same league as him...
"Ye Wanwan knows great master Mei as well?"
"She made great master Mei go over and say hello to her... they must know each other..."
Ye Hong Wei placed his wine down and followed behind Mei Jing Zhou as he asked in surprise, "Mr. Mei, you know Wanwan?"
Hearing that, Mei Jing Zhou nodded and said, "Of course, we became friends despite the difference in age and have known each other for a long time."
"Oh?" Ye Hong Wei was even more surprised. Ye Wanwan actually knows great master Mei...
Ye Shao Ting and Liang Wan Jun had the same look on their faces; they never knew Ye Wanwan knew Mei Jing Zhou...
"Miss Wanwan, you should've told me about the party earlier--I could've prepared more," Mei Jing Zhou said.
Huh? Ye Wanwan blinked and stood rooted to the ground. She had no idea what Mei Jing Zhou was saying.
Is he really talking to me?
"Great master Mei... what's the meaning of this?" Ye Hong Wei and everyone else had the same bewildered expression.
"Eh, Mr. Ye still has no idea?" Mei Jing Zhou smiled. "I'm here tonight at Mr. Ye's birthday banquet because of my little friend Wanwan's request to congratulate Mr. Ye on your birthday."
Mei Jing Zhou's words were like thunderclaps on the ground. The entire hall went completely silent.
