Chapter 1004 - Do You Like Me a Lot?
The lights reflected off the two figures who were standing next to each other.
After Shen Li answered, she looked at the man standing in front of her and sighed again.
Lu Huaiyu’s eyebrows raised slightly.
“What’s wrong? Shen Tangtang, you can’t go back on your words.”
Shen Li walked over and pulled on his sleeve. She buried her head in his neck and whispered, “I’m not going back on my word. But… compared to the present that Second Brother gave me, mine is too ordinary.”
She had given him a tie and cufflinks. Although she had taken a long time to choose the tie, and the cufflinks had been custom-made by her, but–
Lu Huaiyu’s chest trembled as if he was laughing. Then, he stepped back and cupped her little face, making her raise her head.
He asked with a smile, “Shen Tangtang, are you nineteen or three years old? Is this something you have to compete in?”
Shen Li’s cheeks puffed up slightly.
Lu Huaiyu continued,”Besides, didn’t I already get my gift back from you just now?”
Shen Li still minded. “How can it be the same?”
“How can it be different?”
Lu Huaiyu slightly relaxed the strength in his hands and cupped the side of her face.
“Shen Tangtang, to me, nothing is better than this gift. Do you understand?”
He smiled as if he was teasing or comforting her. However, his eyes were serious and every word was sincere.
Shen Li was quiet for a while. She lowered her head slightly as her lips moved.
Lu Huaiyu did not hear her clearly, so he bent down and asked with a smile, “Hmm? What?”
Shen Li looked at the handsome face that was in front of her. She held his hand and whispered, “… that opportunity… was only ever given to you first.”
Even if he did not say it, even without this studio and this brilliant galaxy, he did not even need to ask that question.
Some things had long been thought of.
So, there would only be that one answer.
Lu Huaiyu held his breath slightly.
He maintained that posture for a while before stepping back slightly to look at her.
He fixed his gaze on her for a long time before he asked with a smile, “Shen Tangtang, do you like me a lot?”
Shen Li’s eyes met his gaze.
She had long known of his love on this day a year ago.
No, it had been earlier, much earlier.
So now, she wanted to be the one to confess.
Shen Li looked at him, as she enunciated each word clearly.
“Ning Li, Shen Li, Shen Tangtang… All of them like you a lot.”
On the day of their one-year anniversary, it was simple to say that it had been grand, ordinary, and precious.
In the end, they had taken a nap together, had dinner together, and given each other gifts.
They had enjoyed being in each other’s embrace, but under the starry sky, they had expressed all of their love.
He had asked for a promise, and she had made a confession to him.
At ten o’clock in the evening, Lu Huaiyu sent her back to Skyleaf City.
When Shen Li returned home, she saw that Shen Zhijin was sitting in the living room. There was a computer in front of him, as if he was in the middle of his work.
However, Shen Li knew that he had been waiting for her.
“Dad, it’s so late. Why aren’t you resting?”
Shen Zhijin looked up.
Shen Li took a few steps forward and saw a large pile of gift boxes on the cabinet next to her. Those were the birthday presents that Old Master Lu and the others had given her.
Shen Zhijin noticed her gaze and said, “Fang Qingyun passed them to me this afternoon.”
Shen Li nodded.
“They were given to me by Grandpa Lu and the others.”
Shen Zhijin knew that Fang Yunyi had given Shen Li a present previously, so he was not surprised to see so many today.
His gaze fell on her face.
“Did you have fun at the Lu family’s house today?”
Shen Li turned her head to look at him, her peach blossom eyes curved beautifully.
“Yes. Aunt Fang cooks very well.”
