Spoiled by Eight Uncles (Lily) novel Chapter 25

Cheryl knew her mother was happy, and she was happy too.

She took a deep breath and summoned up her courage to walk up to Lawrence.

”Hi, Mr. Lambert. I’m Cheryl. I like your paintings very much. You’re my idol!”

It was only then that Lawrence noticed Cheryl. He nodded and said, “Thank you, little girl!”

Although Lawrence did not like social activities, he was a kind and approachable person.

Cheryl was very happy. She thought it was because Lawrence liked her.

Just when she was about to say something, Lily, who had changed her clothes, came down the stairs. She was holding a few paintings in her hands.

Holding her hand, Gilbert introduced. “That old man is Mr. Lambert.”

Lily nodded and walked up to Lawrence. “Nice to meet you, Mr. Lamber,” she said.

Hearing that, Lawrence was stunned. He guffawed and said, “Nice to meet you too! My dear!”

Young small kids usually called him Grandpa Lawrence, but Lily called him Mr. Lambert seriously instead. He was amused.

Lawrence then raised his hand and touched Lily’s hair ribbon. “How old are you?” he asked.

Lily did not answer immediately. She took a glance at Hugh.

What’s wrong with this old man? I’m celebrating my four-year-old birthday today. Surely, I’m four years old. Why is he still asking me?

After thinking for a while, Lily still answered obediently, “Mr. Lambert, it’s my four-year-old birthday party today. I’m four years old now.”

Hearing that, Lawrence was stunned.

He suddenly felt that he was being looked down upon by a kid. He could not help grinning and nodded. “Yes! You’re right. Look how silly I’m.”

“It’s okay. Sometimes, I’m silly too!” Lily replied with a smile.

In fact, Lily wanted to say sometimes she asked silly questions too. Nonetheless, she did not know how to express her words since no one taught her. The choice of words she used was limited.

However, Lawrence found her cute and innocent and liked her even more.

Standing aside, Cheryl felt unhappy as Lily stole the limelight.

Tina could not help but sigh too. She was speechless to see Lily with her paintings.

Showing off because she’s the apple of the eye in the family? Does she think Mr. Lambert will take anyone as his student?

With a smile on his face, Hugh said, “Lambert, my old friend. Come and have tea with me on the second floor!”

Lawrence could not wait to see Lily’s paintings. He nodded and said, “Sure!”

Hearing that, Cheryl was stunned. What about her when Lawrence left?

Didn’t he want me to become his student?

Cheryl squeezed her fingers and asked anxiously, “Mr. Lambert, what about me?”

Lawrence looked at her, confused. “Good girl. I’ll see you next time.”

With that, Hugh led Lawrence to the second floor with Lily.

Tina was dumbfounded, and so was Cheryl.

Although Tina was very angry, she knew she had to endure it.

“You will shine when it’s your time. The Crawford family is rich and influential. But Mr. Lambert is not an ordinary man. They can’t possibly bribe him with money. They’re asking for humiliation themselves!”

Tina comforted Cheryl. “Cheryl, have patience and wait.”

However, they did not expect they would wait for a long time.

In the study on the second floor, Lily sat upright on the sofa and glanced at Lawrence in front of her.

“Lily, do you know that Mr. Lambert is the most well-known oil painting artist in the country? In fact, you should address him as Master Lambert.”

“Master Lambert!” Lily said obediently.

From the beginning, Lawrence liked Lily from the bottom of his heart. He asked, “Sweetheart, did you draw all these paintings?”
