Chapter 1018: I Take Full Responsibility for You

Lu Huaiyu raised his eyebrows.

This little girl would really… be the death of him.

Once these words were said, how was he going to settle this score?

Time and time again, every time she caused any trouble, she would act coquettishly and shamelessly, clearing herself of everything.

Yet he really could not do anything to her.

Wasn’t he used to her temperament by now?

Other than pampering her, what else could he do?

He held her hand tightly.

“Then shall we go down and wait for Teacher Shen?”

Shen Li nodded and followed him down the mountain.

After walking for some distance, she thought of another matter– How on earth had Shen Zhijin agreed to bring Lu Huaiyu to Seven Treasures Mountain today?

Especially after all the trouble she had caused last night.

Lu Huaiyu noticed her gaze and turned to look at her.

“What’s wrong?”

Shen Li hesitated for a moment before asking,”Second Brother, my dad brought you here today…”

Lu Huaiyu smiled faintly.

“Didn’t you say that you didn’t want to know just now? Why are you asking about it again?”

Shen Li pursed her lips slightly.

Gu Tinglan had been punished just because she had tasted a few bottles of wine, and Lu Huaiyu–

His situation was very likely worse than Gu Tinglan’s.

However, Lu Huaiyu being allowed to come to Seven Treasures Mountain today proved that not only Shen Zhijin, but even the Gu family had relented.

Throughout the entire night, she did not know what he was exactly…

She hesitated for a moment.

“Second Brother, are you… okay?”

It was rare for Lu Huaiyu to see her behaving so carefully, so thoughts of teasing her played in his mind.

“What if I say that I’m not feeling very good?”

Shen Li frowned slightly.

“What’s wrong?”

Surely he was not… injured or anything like that, right?

But she really could not imagine what had happened last night.

However, judging from Gu Siyang’s reaction, it should be…

Without saying anything, Lu Huaiyu merely looked at her quietly.

Shen Li paused for a moment and asked tentatively, “Then… should I take full responsibility for you?”

Lu Huaiyu’s eyes were filled with smiles.

Well, at least she knew that she could not go back on her word.

He asked again, “Then what if I say that I’m fine?”

The young girl lowered her head and thought for a while. Then, she raised her head. Her eyes were clear and her ears were slightly red.

“Then… you’ll take full responsibility for me?”

Lu Huaiyu stared at her. His thin lips slowly curved into a perfect arc as he leaned forward slightly.

The distance between the two instantly shortened, and they could hear each other’s breathing clearly.

“Shen Tangtang, now that you know that you’ve caused trouble, do you have a guilty conscience?”

Shen Li met his deep gaze but did not say anything. However, this one glance was enough to compel him to go through fire and water for her.

He laughed.

He had been willing to do it, and it was something he could not ask for.

How could he blame her for anything?

He kissed the space between her eyebrows.

“You don’t know just how much Teacher Shen and the others care about you.”

Everything was just for this.

Shen Li blinked.

Lu Huaiyu lowered his gaze and looked into her eyes.

“However, what you said just now still has to be counted, understand?”

Shen Li and Lu Huaiyu went down the mountain first and waited in the car for half an hour before Shen Zhijin came back.

Then, the group returned to the Gu residence.

By the time they arrived at the Gu residence, it was noon.

Old Mrs. Gu invited Lu Huaiyu to join them for lunch.

Apart from that, Gu Siyang was also there.

Oh, and Gu Tinglan.

He had rested for the whole morning before finally waking up.

It was just that he was clearly not in a good state. He did not say much at the dining table, and he did not eat much.

He had drunk five bottles of wine altogether. The effects had been too strong.

Old Master Gu did not bother much about him. Only Old Madam Gu instructed the servants to prepare an extra portion of sobering soup for him.

“Ah Li is returning to the Capital this afternoon?”

Old Master Gu asked.

Shen Li nodded.

“I still have to take an exam tomorrow.”

If it were not for the fact that she was in a hurry, she would not have wanted to go back and forth like this.

Her original plan had been to come back for a day and wait for the July holiday before coming back to stay longer.

Of course, reality proved that no matter how short the time was, she still had not been able to avoid getting into trouble.

However, Old Master Gu and the others doted on her. Seeing that she had been so drunk the night before, they did not have the heart to say anything more. They had only told her to go back and have a good rest, not to be nervous about the exam, and so on.

Gu Siyang was beside him as he looked at Lu Huaiyu, then at Gu Tinglan, and finally at Shen Li, secretly sighing in his heart.

Look, what was the point of class or status?

The only one who had gotten drunk had not faced any consequences.

Then, he looked at the remaining two…

No, he would have to be on really good terms with his cousin in the future!

This was the real trump card!

As for those two– Unfamiliar! Really not familiar!

“Will Doctor Gu return to the Capital this afternoon?”

Lu Huaiyu suddenly asked.

Gu Tinglan raised his eyes to look at him, his heart secretly alert.

“I haven’t decided yet. Why do you ask?”

Lu Huaiyu smiled slightly.

“It’s nothing, it was just a casual question. If Doctor Gu returns to the Capital this afternoon, we can go together.”

Gu Tinglan instinctively rejected the suggestion.

“Thank you, but I suddenly remembered that I still have some unfinished business here. I don’t think I can go with Second Master.”

Lu Huaiyu understood.

“In that case, it’s a pity.”

Gu Tinglan’s heart relaxed.

To be honest, he had known Lu Huaiyu for quite a long time, but this was the first time he felt this… sense of danger from him.

He had not been there the whole of last night. After drinking the wine, his consciousness had quickly blurred, so he had gone to sleep. He had not woken up until it was close to noon today.

So… he did not really know what was going on with Lu Huaiyu.

But judging from Gu Siyang’s reaction, it should be… not much better.

His intuition told him that he should stay as far away from Lu Huaiyu as possible.

However, just as this thought flashed through his mind, Lu Huaiyu changed the tone of his voice and said with a faint smile, “However, I’m quite interested in those bottles of wine. I wonder if it’d be convenient for Doctor Gu to gift me a few bottles for my collection.”

Why had he mentioned those bottles of wine again?

Gu Tinglan’s heart tightened. Seeing that Old Master Gu and Shen Zhijin did not express their opinions, he said, “It’s just an ordinary wine produced by the winery. Second Master Lu has a lot of wine. These shouldn’t be of interest to you.”

“How can that be?”

Lu Huaiyu said slowly,

“I think this wine is very rare. Besides… I’ve come all the way here for these few bottles of wine. Wouldn’t it be a pity if I didn’t treasure them properly?”

Gu Tinglan’s eyes twitched.
