Chapter 1017 - I Had a Dream
Shen Li was stunned.
“Medication? What medication?”
Lu Huaiyu looked at her with his pitch-black eyes.
“Have you forgotten? At that time, you said that you had taken the medication properly today and told me not to get angry.”
Shen Li’s heart skipped a beat.
She did not remember.
She really did not remember.
However, if she had not said this, Lu Huaiyu would never have asked this question now.
Their surroundings were so quiet that Shen Li could clearly hear the sound of her own heart beating.
The sun was very bright, but she felt that her fingers had gone cold.
In the last period of her previous life, she had been staying with Lu Huaiyu.
He had asked a doctor to come over.
She had had external injuries, both old and new, which had been hidden under her hospital gown.
However, what was more serious was the internal organ failure caused by the long-term overdose of various drugs.
At that time, there had been no turning back.
She had not been able to eat normally, and she had not been able to swallow the drugs.
So she had only been able to drink liquid food. In the end, she had to be given nutrient injections, including the kind of drugs that could only be injected.
But at that time, she had been very resistant to these things. No matter how much she refused to use the drugs, Lu Huaiyu hugged her and coaxed her over and over again.
Changing the dressings, bathing, administering her medication… all of these had been done by him personally.
So last night, she would have said something like that.
But she did not know that she had actually mentioned the medication!
These words obviously couldn’t be explained by “Drunk talking nonsense.”.
Shen Li lowered her eyes, but her gaze was a little out of focus.
But, what was she going to say?
She stayed silent while Lu Huaiyu waited patiently.
Every second seemed to lengthen infinitely.
After an unknown amount of time, she finally spoke.
“Lu Huaiyu, I had a dream.
“I dreamed that I was sick, and then you tried to feed me medicine, but I refused to take it, so you got angry.”
Lu Huaiyu was slightly startled, but he then burst into laughter.
“Why would I get angry with you for such a reason?”
Shen Li did not dare to look into his eyes, so she reached out to hug him and leaned into his embrace.
Her forehead was pressed against his chest, and her voice was a little muffled, sounding a little aggrieved.
“Well, you seem to be angry with me.”
Lu Huaiyu had originally planned to settle this matter with her, but she was now so obedient and soft in his embrace while complaining in a low voice that he was angry at her. She was so delicate that his heart instantly softened.
She gently rubbed against his chest, and her soft hair gently brushed against his chin, tickling him slightly, just like a cat.
His chest shook a little as he chuckled softly.
“Shen Tangtang, are you being unreasonable?”
He had yet to find the culprit to collect his debt, but she had already made a false accusation, saying that he had scolded her while she had been in a dream.
Shen Li buried herself in his arms without saying a word.
Lu Huaiyu had no way of dealing with her. In the end, he lowered his head and compromised, coaxing her nicely.
“Okay, then can I apologize to you? I shouldn’t have scolded you in your dream.”
This accusation had come out of nowhere, yet he still had to apologize.
After all, this was the little ancestor that he had spent so much effort to bring back.
“Then did I do anything else in my dream that made you angry, hmm?”
Shen Li shook her head. “No.”
Lu Huaiyu raised his eyebrows slightly. “Really?”
Shen Li nodded. “Really.”
Lu Huaiyu smiled faintly.
“Alright, then let’s talk about the second thing: When did I ever wash your hair?”
Shen Li’s body stiffened.
She had actually forgotten about this!
Actually, this question was not about washing her hair, because there had been another sentence in front of it.
It seemed that she had said that she wanted to take a shower first.
This sentence was the main point!
She did not move. Lu Huaiyu dug her out of his embrace and cupped her soft face.
Shen Li’s small face quickly turned red.
How, how should she put this…
He had done these things in her previous life, but that had been her previous life!
What was the situation then, and what was the situation now?
When she was confused, she would tacitly assume that these things were all done by him, but–
How should she explain it now that she was awake?
“It seems like you still remember?”
The tips of Lu Huaiyu’s brows raised slightly, and the corners of his lips curled into a casual smile as he spoke slowly.
“Shen Tangtang, thanks to you, Old Master Gu and the others already know how far my relationship with my girlfriend has progressed. Of course, I only found out about this last night.”
Shen Li was shocked.
Had anyone else been there when she said that?!
She frantically recalled the scene in her mind.
She seemed to have been in the living room when she told Lu Huaiyu–
In the living room…
In the living room!
Shen Li’s mind momentarily went blank.
She did not have many remaining memories, only those few scenes.
When she recalled that she had made a call from Hong Kong City all the way to Lu Huaiyu who had been in the Capital in the middle of the night and said that sentence to him, she had not known how to face Lu Huaiyu anymore. All she could think of was how to explain it to him.
Thus, she had ignored the other circumstances.
So… everyone had been there at that time?!
Shen Li grabbed the corner of his shirt, but her fingers felt numb.
Lu Huaiyu looked at her calmly. He wanted to hear how the little girl would explain herself this time.
With a simple sentence, he had completely challenged her.
Shen Li did not dare to think about what had happened last night, and she did not dare to ask Lu Huaiyu what he had talked about with Old Master Gu.
After a long while, she finally found an excuse.
“… I… didn’t I tell you just now that I had a dream? You… at that time, you…”
Even though she did not finish her sentence, Lu Huaiyu was smart enough to guess what she meant.
He lowered his head to look at her. Her cheeks were burning hot, and her ears were red. The scorching temperature seemed to spread from between his fingers all the way to the bottom of his heart.
He stared at her for a few seconds before he asked with a smile, “Shen Tangtang, what kind of dream did you have?”
Asking her to take the medicine, but her refusing to take it. Him being angry with her… How could he bear to do that?
She had been sick, and he had been helping her…
“Then can I ask, Shen Tangtang, what kind of illness did you have in your dream?” He cupped her face. “A fever?”
She had been complaining that she had a fever the night before.
When he said this, Shen Li vaguely remembered this matter.
She nodded, averted her gaze, and softly said, “Hmm”.
Lu Huaiyu said with a low laugh, “You’re so delicate when you have a fever. Who spoiled you, Shen Tangtang?”
Shen Li’s eyelashes trembled slightly as she met his gaze.
The bright and mottled light reflected in his eyes, making his brows and eyes appear even more clear and bright, noble and pure.
There was a smile lurking on the corners of his mouth, showing his obvious favoritism and indulgence.
He was still as arrogant and untainted. His body exuded the cool smell of cedar, and his voice was low and gentle.
It was not like that time when he had been thin and dejected, and the smell of smoke clinging to him could not be dispersed. His voice had been hoarse as he stubbornly called out to her.
What was so good about that?
What was so good about Lu Huaiyu in that condition?
He could not know.
He did not want to know.
The corners of her lips curled up. She held his hand and interlocked her fingers with his.
Just like that, it was very good.
