Chapter 1062 - Ancestor, Have You Gone Mad?
He had never said the word “No” to any of her requests, let alone while she was snuggling in his arms like this, with her small face raised and acting coquettishly.
Lu Huaiyu’s Adam’s apple rolled. He lowered his head and tilted his head, kissing her soft lips. He gave her his reply with a low smile.
“Since Miss Shen has said so, of course, you can.”
As he spoke, he nibbled her lips and tried to pry open her lips and teeth with the tip of his tongue.
However, the young girl suddenly moved backward to avoid his kiss, even though he wanted to go deeper into it.
Her rosy red lips curved into a smile. There was a hint of slyness and innocence in her bright black eyes.
“Since Second Brother has agreed, then we have an agreement.”
Leaning in close to him, she took the initiative to kiss him, easily arousing his restlessness.
However, she then retreated again. That sweet and soft feeling made him feel even more restless.
He let out a low “Mm” and tightened his grip around her waist. He held her soft and slender waist, not allowing her to escape. He bent his head closer and looked for her lips again, wanting to plunder and absorb more.
However, very quickly, a small hand came over and covered his mouth.
Her entire body was soft, and even the palm of her hand was the same. It had a rich and light sweet fragrance that was almost intoxicating and captivating.
She stood on her tiptoes and blinked. Her full and moist lips were separated from by her hand, as if she wanted to kiss him, but she did not touch him.
She was so close yet so far away.
Lu Huaiyu’s eyes darkened as he felt the agitation in his body grow stronger.
The corners of her lips curled up into a mischievous smile, and her voice was extremely soft as she spoke.
“There’s someone here.”
But there was no one here.
Right now, all he could see was her.
If she had continued to behave obediently, he would be able to restrain himself rationally, but the moment she took the initiative, all of his self-control easily collapsed.
Tonight especially, she seemed to be particularly seductive.
He wanted to hug her, kiss her and touch her.
He was about to continue, but she turned her face away and looked back at the brightly lit banquet hall.
“We’ve been out for quite a while. If it’s too long, Grandpa will probably look for us. Shall we go back?”
That strange and subtle feeling surged up again.
Lu Huaiyu lowered his eyes slightly and looked at the young girl in his arms. He saw her smooth and full forehead, her elegant nose bridge, and her raven-feather-like eyelashes fluttering slightly.
However, this was only for an instant. Before he had time to think carefully, Shen Li had already grabbed his hand and shook it gently.
She did not need to do anything. Just this sound was enough for him to lower his head willingly.
His fingertips curled slightly, and the tip of his tongue pressed against his upper palate. Finally, he suppressed the restlessness and desire in his heart. He went along with her thoughts and answered with a low smile,”Okay.”
Then, he finally let go of the arm that was around her waist. Instead, he held her hand and walked back.
After they returned to the banquet hall, very soon, someone came forward to chat with them.
Seeing the smile on her lips and the ease with which she dealt with it, Lu Huaiyu quickly put aside what had just happened and did not think about it anymore.
Throughout the entire banquet, he constantly remained by her side.
Some of the toasts that she declined politely were really hard to refuse, so he helped her to block them. He took care not to let her touch a single drop of wine.
The young girl herself seemed to know that she could not touch wine, so she kept raising her glass of fruit juice.
Of course, there were many people who came to Lu Huaiyu for a toast. However, when they saw that he was still drinking from the glass and his eyes were still clear and relaxed. He did not appear to be drunk at all, so they realized that the credibility of the rumors that he did not get drunk easily was indeed very high. Later on, everyone gave up, afraid that they would be the first ones to pass out before he even got drunk.
It was not until ten o’clock in the evening that Shen Li finally accompanied Old Master Gu and Old Madam Gu back.
Lu Huaiyu sent them to the entrance of the hotel.
Shen Li was about to get into the car when she suddenly remembered something. She turned around and walked back a few steps, coming to stand in front of Lu Huaiyu.
The night wind ruffled her hair, and a few strands of her hair covered her eyes and brows. Under the thick night sky, her eyes and brows looked even more beautiful.
She moved closer, and the tip of her perky nose twitched slightly, as if she was trying to smell the alcohol on his body.
Then, her eyes and brows curved, and she smiled at him.
“Second Brother, thank you for tonight. I’m very happy.”
The way she looked reminded Lu Huaiyu of a furry little animal and his heart skipped a beat. However, considering that the members of the Gu family were not far away, he restrained his impulse and only raised his hand to caress her hair.
“Remember to let me know when you get home.”
Shen Li nodded, then turned around and walked quickly into the car.
The black car slowly drove away.
Lu Huaiyu did not turn back to the hotel until it had completely disappeared in the darkness.
The Gu residence.
Shen Li returned to the bedroom and sent a message to Lu Huaiyu. She then casually put her phone on the table and went to the bathroom to remove her makeup.
The light makeup she had worn today, coupled with her exquisite facial features, made her skin clear and white. There was not much difference between before and after she had applied the makeup.
The young girl’s beautiful face was reflected in the mirror.
Shen Li propped her hands on the sink and looked at herself in the mirror.
Compared to three years ago, she had matured a little.
At that time, she had been sixteen years old. There was a sharpness hidden between her brows, but she had also been young and immature.
Yes, she had been young and immature.
Otherwise, she would not have suffered such a huge loss to Saint.
Oh, perhaps it should be said that it was Lu Huaiyu.
Thinking of this, the girl in the mirror slowly smiled.
However, the meaning of this smile was unclear.
Then, she changed out of her dress and went into the bathroom.
Shen Li took a bath for an hour.
The mist rose in the bathroom as she lay in the bathtub with her eyes closed, her vision feeling a little blurry.
Countless images flashed past her mind.
From three years ago, and now.
There were also all kinds of voices echoing in her ears.
It was not until the water temperature gradually became slightly colder that she finally opened her eyes and stood up.
She changed into her pajamas and dried her hair. Then, she lazily went to the table and picked up her phone.
After tidying up, it was already past twelve o’clock.
Lu Huaiyu had replied earlier.
She stared at the dialog box for a few seconds and quickly exited.
Then, she pulled out a chair and sat down as she opened her laptop.
A hexagram pattern quickly appeared on the screen.
She leaned back lazily against the chair and called Wen Xiao.
The phone rang for a long time until the call was about to automatically end before it was finally picked up.
Wen Xiao’s hoarse voice was filled with despair.
“What time is it already? Why are you calling? Old people need to sleep early and wake up early to recuperate, okay? My old bones–”
Shen Li said calmly, “I’m going to Leland next month. In addition to the competition, I’m also going to Paradise. Please help me arrange it.”
Hearing this, Wen Xiao immediately sat up in shock.
Any remnants of his sleepiness completely disappeared in an instant. Because of his shock, the tone of his voice became a little distorted.
“Little ancestor, is it because I haven’t woken up, or because you drank too much at the reception tonight, or is it simply because… you are crazy?!”
