Chapter 1012 - You Touch, It’s So Hot
The gorgeous crystal chandelier hung down, shining brightly.
The young girl sat obediently on the sofa alone, looking at him through the transparent French windows.
She did not know why, although she was surrounded by brilliant splendor, her body seemed to be covered by an invisible barrier, isolating her from all those things, and making her seem extremely lonely.
She turned to look over, as if she had been waiting for him for a very, very long time.
His heart tightened, and his footsteps quickened.
Qi Yang led the way in front and pushed the door open for him.
“Second Master Lu, please–”
Lu Huaiyu’s long legs stepped through the door.
Then, he saw Qi Yang bending slightly to his right and said respectfully, “Old Master, Second Master Lu has arrived.”
Almost at the same time, Lu Huaiyu immediately felt several pairs of eyes that seemed to be on him.
He stopped in his tracks and then realized something. He turned his head to look to his right.
Old Master Gu was sitting there, reading a book with his head lowered.
Hearing Qi Yang’s voice, he put down the Old Tang Book in his hand and looked over.
Old Master Gu had been in and out of the business world all his life. He had experienced ups and downs, and his aura was extremely strong.
When he looked over, his sharp eyes seemed to be able to pierce through a person’s skin.
Beside Old Master Gu, Gu Tingchuan was frowning, and Gu Tingyun was smiling.
Gu Tinglan was also there, but his expression was not the same as before. He only took a glance at him and quickly looked away. There were a few bottles of wine beside him.
Gu Siyang was the furthest away. He looked as if he wanted to say something, but he hesitated.
At the same time, Lu Huaiyu felt a chill coming from behind him.
He turned his head and saw Gu Tingfeng sitting on another sofa in the living room. He looked in his direction with a slightly serious expression and a scrutinizing gaze.
Next to Shen Li was Shen Zhijin.
When he heard the sound of movement, Shen Zhijin raised his eyes and looked over.
Their eyes met, but Shen Zhijin’s expression was indifferent.
In just an instant, Shen Zhijin withdrew his gaze and helped Shen Li change her tea.
During this period of waiting, he had already changed her tea twice, but Shen Li had not moved.
Lu Huaiyu’s eyes moved slightly.
The Gu family members were all here.
There was a subtle atmosphere in the air, as if every inch of the void was tense.
There was an instant, stagnant silence.
Finally, Old Master Gu said lightly, “He’s here.”
These two simple words were calm and plain. There were no fluctuations, but they carried an extremely heavy pressure as they sank down.
It was already twelve o’clock in the evening. The Gu family members, including Shen Zhijin, were obviously not here because they were too free.
They were obviously waiting for him.
Lu Huaiyu paused and met Old Master Gu’s stern and scrutinizing gaze, as if he had not noticed the dangerous aura in the air. He smiled slightly.
“Old Master Gu, I’m here to see Ah Li.”
The Gu family members were all formidable characters. An ordinary person would not be able to withstand one of them, let alone all of them.
Not to mention, there was also Old Master Gu and Shen Zhijin.
However, Lu Huaiyu stood there, looking extremely calm.
Old Master Gu narrowed his eyes and said slowly, “Yes.”
Lu Huaiyu nodded slightly, before turning around and walking over to the left.
Shen Li’s gaze had been fixed on him ever since she spotted him.
She watched him as he entered and approached her.
Step by step, Lu Huaiyu walked closer until he finally stopped in front of Shen Li.
Shen Li looked up at him, feeling that this scene was both strange and familiar.
“Lu Huaiyu, you’re here.”
Lu Huaiyu bent down. Seeing her flushed cheeks and dazed eyes, he knew that she was very drunk.
He caressed her hair and said in a low voice, “Ah Li, why are you drinking again?”
His deep voice reached her ears, which finally confirmed for her that it was him.
Her worried heart was relieved, but when she heard what he said, she felt strange.
She shook her head. “I’m not.”
Lu Huaiyu raised his eyebrows.
But when it came to people who were drunk, there was always no reason to talk about it.
Gu Tingfeng, however, sensed something fishy and suddenly asked, “How many times has Ah Li been drunk before?”
Lu Huaiyu paused.
The moment Gu Tingfeng asked this question, he felt the air freeze for a moment.
Obviously, everyone was waiting for his answer.
Except for Shen Zhijin, who already knew.
Gu Tingfeng continued to ask, “Is she like this only when she’s drunk, or is she like this all the time?”
This question was even more difficult to answer.
Gu Siyang looked at this scene and silently gave Lu Huaiyu a thumbs up in his heart.
This was the Second Master Lu, who could remain calm under such circumstances.
If it were him, he would have bid farewell to this beautiful world the moment he had entered the room and was given such death stares.
However, before Lu Huaiyu and Shen Li could reply, Shen Li suddenly spoke.
“Lu Huaiyu, I have a fever.”
These words immediately attracted everyone’s attention.
Old Master Gu furrowed his brows slightly.
“Ah Li has a fever?”
Shen Zhijin sized her up and shook his head.
“She was fine when she came. It shouldn’t be–”
He abruptly stopped talking.
This was because Shen Li had grabbed Lu Huaiyu’s hand, which was originally been placed on her head, and pressed it against her cheek.
Compared to his hand, her hand was a little smaller and seemed especially tender and soft.
“Feel it, it’s so hot.”
Perhaps it was because he had come in a hurry, Lu Huaiyu’s hand was still slightly cold, but it made her feel much more comfortable when it was pressed against her face.
So she rubbed her face against the palm of his hand again.
The scene froze.
Gu Siyang quickly looked left and right, as he tried to think about where he could run away from this dangerous place as soon as possible. He still cherished his life!
The city gate was on fire. He shouldn’t get caught in the crossfire!
Lu Huaiyu’s eyebrows jumped. He moved closer and coaxed her patiently.
“Ah Li, it’s very late. Would you like to go and rest first?”
It was really not good for her to be so drunk.
The familiar cool smell of cedar filled the air. It was the smell that lingered when she was sober every day.
Shen Li raised her head from his palm.
As she spoke, she furrowed her beautiful brows slightly.
Her body seemed to be drenched in sweat. Her clothes stuck to her body, making her feel uncomfortable.
“But I want to take a shower first.”
She gently tugged at his hand.
“I don’t have to wash my hair this time.”
As soon as she finished speaking, the vast space instantly turned deathly silent.
