Chapter 1015 - Was Really Rare
Shen Li lowered her head slightly.
“… I’m alert now.”
She simply could not be more alert.
She even began to miss the time when she had completely blacked out after drinking. That way, at least she would have some courage to face the world after she sobered up.
And not like now–
Why had she not controlled her hand and not called Lu Huaiyu?
No, she should not have drunk any wine from the start!
Just because of a winery, she had actually said such a thing!
She did not even know how to save this situation!
Shen Zhijin nodded.
“Well, that’s good. Come down and have something to eat first.”
Shen Li agreed and put the blue box back into the room, before following Shen Zhijin downstairs.
The surroundings were quiet and deserted.
Shen Li followed Shen Zhijin to the dining room. Shen Zhijin then asked, “What would you like to eat?”
Shen Li sat down at the table. “Anything… anything is fine. Dad, I’m not very hungry.”
Shen Zhijin asked the kitchen to serve some lotus seed and lily porridge.
He sat down opposite Shen Li.
“Do you feel uncomfortable?”
Shen Li wanted to shake her head, but when the words reached her mouth, she changed her mind.
“… I still have a headache.”
Shen Zhijin furrowed his brows slightly. “Don’t drink so much in the future.”
Shen Li immediately nodded obediently.
As the maid brought the porridge over, the fragrance spread. Only then did Shen Li feel that she was indeed a little hungry.
It was just that… When people felt guilty, no matter what they ate, they could not taste anything.
As she ate the porridge one mouthful at a time, she began to mull over what explanation she would give if Shen Zhijin asked her anything.
However, even after waiting and waiting, Shen Zhijin did not speak again.
He sat there, his handsome and clear face remaining calm.
Shen Li almost felt as if nothing had happened last night.
However, the scene in her mind, as well as the phone call to Lu Huaiyu, continued to remind her that all of this was indeed the truth.
Just then, a cautious voice came from the side.
Shen Li turned her head.
Gu Siyang first greeted Shen Zhijin, then quickly looked at Shen Li, his gaze carefully sweeping across her face.
He coughed lightly.
“That… Sister, did you sleep well last night?”
Shen Li paused. “I did. But Cousin, didn’t you… sleep very well?”
The dark circles under his eyes were almost like a national treasure.
Gu Siyang’s face was filled with tears.
“It’s all because my dad and the others went home so late last night. I stayed up extremely late–”
As Shen Zhijin put down the cup of water, he made a sound that was neither light nor heavy.
Gu Siyang was instantly silenced.
Shen Li frowned.
“First Uncle and the others… What happened?”
Gu Siyang waved his hands repeatedly. “It’s nothing… nothing! I mean, I really didn’t sleep well last night–”
How could he have slept well?!
After Shen Li had gone upstairs to sleep, the lights on the first floor of the Gu residence had stayed lit up for another hour!
After that, only Old Master Gu went back to rest, but the remaining few were not done yet.
It was not until two o’clock in the morning that the situation finally ended.
After witnessing the brutal scene of Second Master Lu being surrounded by all his men, Gu Siyang had not slept well the whole night, and his young mind had been greatly traumatized.
It was too scary…
The men of the Gu family were too scary!
But that was not all.
This was the first time he had truly experienced Shen Zhijin!
Recalling the scene at that time, Gu Siyang could not help but shudder.
In the past, he used to see Shen Zhijin as someone who was refined and pure, subconsciously thinking that he had a gentle and indifferent temperament.
That was until last night when he had finally understood.
Too simple, he was still too simple-minded!
If this man was as simple and harmless as he looked on the surface, how could he have taken away the only pearl in the Gu Family?
But how could he dare to say these words to Shen Li in front of Shen Zhijin?
Seeing his evasive expression, Shen Li guessed something and pursed her lips.
The situation seemed to be… worse than she had expected…
She asked, “Have First Uncle and the others already gone home?”
Gu Siyang coughed.
“Yes, they have. My parents have gone home. In addition, Second Uncle’s family and Third Uncle have also left.”
“Where’s Little Uncle?” Shen Li asked.
Gu Siyang’s eyebrows jumped.
“Ahem, he… Little Uncle is still at home.”
Shen Li looked left and right. “I don’t think I’ve seen him?”
Of course not. If he guessed correctly, he was still lying on the bed right now, wasn’t he?
Old Master Gu had only said one sentence at the time.
“Your wine is indeed not bad.”
Gu Tinglan had drunk all the wine he had brought back until not a single drop was left.
Although his alcohol tolerance was good, he still could not stand drinking like this. When he had gone back, he had vomited until it was almost dawn before he had finally fallen asleep.
However, under such circumstances, Gu Siyang naturally did not dare to tell the truth.
“He probably has something to do. Didn’t he open a clinic recently? He’s quite busy.”
Gu Tinglan was the boss. He could be busy if he wanted to be busy, but no one could rush him if he did not want to be busy.
This was especially true when he returned to the Gu family home.
Under such circumstances, it was obvious that he “needed” to be busy.
Shen Li nodded sensibly.
At the moment, there was only one person left to ask.
Her lips moved. Just as she was about to muster up the courage to ask, she remembered that Shen Zhijin was sitting just opposite her and swallowed back her words.
In the end, she could only choose to save the situation.
Gu Siyang’s eyebrows twitched.
“Grandpa… is in the study.”
Of course, there was another person who was also there.
He had thought that the matter had passed, but unexpectedly, Old Master Gu called Lu Huaiyu into the study early this morning.
It had been a long time since, and he did not know what was going on over there…
Shen Li looked at him, instinctively guessing that something was up.
Subconsciously, she looked in the direction of the study room.
Shen Zhijin suddenly said,”Go if you want to.”
Shen Li was shocked, and her heart beat quickly, almost jumping out of her chest.
Her hands tightened slightly.
“If Grandpa is in the study, I shouldn’t disturb him…”
Just then, Old Master Gu’s voice could be heard.
“Is Ah Li looking for me?”
Shen Li turned around and saw Old Master Gu walking out of the study.
And who else could the tall figure that was two steps behind him be but Lu Huaiyu?
Just as Shen Li was filled with shock, Lu Huaiyu seemed to have sensed something and looked up.
Meeting the young girl’s flustered and nervous eyes, Lu Huaiyu chuckled.
It was rare for the little ancestor to know the feeling of guilt.
