Chapter 1013 - Shen Tangtang, You Have to Take Full Responsibility for Me for the Rest of Your Life
Lu Huaiyu’s entire body tensed up.
At this moment, no one spoke.
It was clearly a hot and dry day at the end of June, but Lu Huaiyu felt a chill coming over them.
His Adam’s apple moved, and then he touched Shen Li’s forehead without changing his expression.
“She shouldn’t be having a fever.”
He bent down and looked at Shen Li with his dark phoenix eyes. He said each word with certainty.
“Ah Li, you’re drunk.”
Shen Li looked at him blankly.
She didn’t have a fever?
But she felt very hot and uncomfortable.
But since he said so, it should mean that she really did not have a fever.
Lu Huaiyu continued to ask,”Shall I take you to get some rest?”
She nodded, not having the strength to think any further. She leaned into his embrace, her movements natural and smooth as if she had done it countless times before.
Still, no one spoke.
Lu Huaiyu paused and gently stroked her hair.
“Ah Li, shall I take you upstairs?”
As he spoke, he held her hand.
Shen Li obediently followed him and stood up.
Lu Huaiyu turned his head to look at Shen Zhijin.
“Teacher Shen, Ah Li’s room–”
Shen Zhijin’s gaze froze on their hands for a moment without saying a word.
Old Master Gu said, “Qi Yang, take him there.”
Qi Yang walked forward.
“Second Master Lu, this way please.”
Lu Huaiyu thanked him, then held Shen Li’s hand and walked upstairs.
Until their figures disappeared at the corner of the stairs, the large living room on the first floor was still dead silent.
Gu Siyang lay down in despair.
This world could no longer be saved!
Lu Huaiyu took Shen Li back to her room. Qi Yang waited outside the door, without going in.
Lu Huaiyu placed Shen Li on the bed, as the tip of his tongue pressed against his upper palate. He stared at her with a dangerous look in his eyes.
“Shen Tangtang, if you dare to drink behind my back again, you will suffer.”
His tone was full of warning, and his eyes were as deep as the sea.
Shen Li looked at him in a daze, unable to understand what he was saying.
But he seemed to be angry.
She reacted for a while, then raised her head and kissed his lips gently, comforting him in a low voice.
“Lu Huaiyu, please don’t be angry. I took my medicine properly today.”
Lu Huaiyu was suddenly stunned.
He furrowed his brows, and a sharp glint flashed across his eyes.
“What did you say?”
Shen Li did not continue. She raised her hand and touched the space between his brows, stubbornly wanting to caress the coldness between his brows.
Lu Huaiyu grabbed her hand and asked again, “Ah Li, what medicine did you say you took just now?”
Shen Li looked at him blankly for a moment.
“… Didn’t you know?”
Lu Huaiyu did not speak. He continued to stare at her, not letting go of any expression on her face.
Her eyes seemed to be covered in a layer of mist, and she could not seem to see clearly.
His hand was too hard, and she felt as if he had touched her wound.
So she struggled for a while, and the visible grievance in her eyes welled up.
“… It hurts.”
Lu Huaiyu’s eyes darkened slightly.
In actual fact, he was only holding her wrist. His grip was definitely not hard, but the expression on her face made her seem as if she was in real pain.
However, seeing her look like this, his heart ached so much that he could not care about anything else.
He let go of her hand and patted her head to comfort her. He said in a low voice, “It’s not good to take a shower immediately after drinking. Can you wait for a while?”
She was so drunk now. He would never let her take a shower by herself, but it was obviously not good to let others help her.
Shen Li hesitated for a moment. “Okay.”
Lu Huaiyu comforted her and then stood up.
Shen Li realized something and grabbed his hand.
“Where are you going?”
Lu Huaiyu thought of the group of people waiting downstairs and gently exhaled.
“To clean up the mess for you, little ancestor.”
Shen Li did not seem to understand his words.
Lu Huaiyu cupped her face.
“I’ll be back later, but… Shen Tangtang, if your boyfriend stays here tonight, you’ll have to take full responsibility for the rest of your life, understand?”
Lu Huaiyu finally managed to coax his little ancestor into sleeping obediently before he left.
When he walked out of the room, Qi Yang was still waiting outside the door.
“Second Master Lu.”
Qi Yang glanced inside the room with a complicated feeling.
Lu Huaiyu closed the door with a “click”.
Gu Siyang took his phone out again and looked at the time.
Very good. Lu Huaiyu had been up there for nine minutes, but he had not come down yet.
Every minute and second of these nine minutes was the most difficult moment in his twenty-odd years of life.
At the tenth minute, the sound of footsteps finally came from the stairs.
Gu Siyang’s heart skipped a beat. He hurriedly looked over and saw Lu Huaiyu walking down.
Lu Huaiyu went downstairs and first looked at Shen Zhijin.
“Teacher Shen, Ah Li is already asleep.”
Gu Siyang covered his face.
Good, very good.
After Shen Li had drunk the wine, she had called Lu Huaiyu and asked him to pick her up. For more than two hours, she had been sitting on the sofa, not moving at all.
She had not drunk any tea, had not talked to anyone, and had not wanted to go to sleep. No one had been able to persuade her.
When Lu Huaiyu arrived, he had coaxed her upstairs to rest with just a few words.
Then there were Shen Li’s words–
Under such circumstances, it would be difficult for Lu Huaiyu and Shen Zhijin to walk out of the Gu residence safely tonight!
Shen Zhijin did not say anything.
Lu Huaiyu paused.
Even though he knew that the effect was minimal, he really had no other choice.
He said,”Ah Li seems to be very drunk this time.”
Shen Zhijin said lightly,”Didn’t she still recognize you? How can you consider that as being very drunk?”
Lu Huaiyu was silent.
A suffocating silence fell upon the scene again.
Old Master Gu suddenly said,”Ah Li is indeed tired today. It’s always good to rest first.”
He looked at Lu Huaiyu. His sharp and wise gaze seemed to be pressing down on him.
“But, Lu Huaiyu, don’t you have anything to say?”
Lu Huaiyu was silent for a moment, then he smiled.
“Before that, I have something to ask you. Tonight, was it Ah Li who wanted to drink?”
When he said this, his gaze was already on the red wine on the table not far away.
There were five bottles in total, and they were all open.
There was still a faint smell of wine in the air.
Gu Siyang subconsciously looked at Gu Tinglan. Gu Tinglan’s expression remained normal, as if this question had nothing to do with him.
Lu Huaiyu continued,”If I’m not mistaken, these five bottles of wine should all have come from Fifth Master Gu’s winery?”
He rarely addressed Gu Tinglan this way.
Gu Tinglan’s eyelids twitched.
If it was anyone else, they might not have been able to recognize it, but Lu Huaiyu also had a wine collection, so he was too familiar with these things. He could tell at a glance.
He finally said, “What Ah Li drank was indeed the wine I brought.”
Lu Huaiyu’s gaze slowly swept across the five bottles of wine.
Gu Tinglan did not say anything.
This was the answer.
Lu Huaiyu smiled.
Alright, tonight, they would agree to dig a hole for him to jump into.
Old Master Gu stared at him and asked in a deep voice,”How many times has Ah Li gotten drunk since the last day you were together when she was still seventeen?”
Before Lu Huaiyu could speak, Shen Zhijin, who was behind them, suddenly spoke. His voice was frighteningly calm.
