Chapter 1116 - 1116 Saint Will Always Be Loyal to You, and So Will Lu Huaiyu
1116 Saint Will Always Be Loyal to You, and So Will Lu Huaiyu
Shen Li paused and leaned on his shoulder, her eyelashes trembling.
She was here not for Saint, but for him.
If it was not for the fact that Saint was Lu Huaiyu, she would never have stepped into Paradise again.
She did not want Saint, but Lu Huaiyu.
If it were anyone else, she would not have done this.
Lu Huaiyu knew that she was tacitly agreeing, and the smile on his lips deepened. He hugged her even tighter and lowered his head to kiss the space between her eyebrows.
“Do you like Second Brother that much?”
She had always had a distant personality and she had never bothered to look at people or things that she did not care about, let alone get angry.
It could be seen that the young girl was really holding back the fire in her heart.
However, if she had not cared, she would not have done this.
Shen Li finally realized something and bit him even harder, grinding her sharp teeth against him.
“If you knew this earlier, why did you say that on purpose?”
If he had not said that he was afraid, how could she have softened her heart so quickly?
He had clearly already determined her thoughts, yet he still had to say that!
Lu Huaiyu wrapped his arms around her waist and lowered his eyes slightly. He paused for a moment before smiling.
“I didn’t know it that long ago, I only just figured it out.”
At the moment he saw her gamble with The Night of the Milky Way and the moment he had known she was Gambler, it was not that he had not panicked.
Indeed, he had never been so afraid before.
He was afraid that she would be angry and even more afraid that he could not make up for the grievances she had suffered.
Lu Huaiyu raised his eyes and looked at the mirror on the sink.
The mirror reflected the two of them leaning against each other. The redness at the tip of her ears had not faded, and her hair was a little disheveled.
He had behaved really ridiculously tonight. There had been a few times in between that she had felt embarrassed and shy, and she had called for him to stop.
He had not done as he was told.
In the end, only when her eyes were filled with tears had his rationality finally returned and let her go.
She had been indulging him.
Just because of what he said.
At this moment, he finally understood what was on her mind.
If she turned around now, she would see the turmoil in his eyes in the mirror.
However, his actions remained gentle as he held her hand.
She retreated reflexively.
“No, I’m not going!”
He could not help but chuckle and interlace his fingers with hers.
Originally, he had been reluctant to do so.
Although he was indeed… but, she was really exhausted.
Holding her by the hips, he carried her up like a child, one hand gently stroking her back.
“Are you sleepy? Do you want to sleep?”
Shen Li lay in his arms and nodded. Her voice was still a little muffled.
She was too lazy to even lift a finger now.
Lu Huaiyu carried her back to the bed, and the warm yellow light of the bedside lamp shone down.
Her fair and clear skin seemed to be coated with a layer of glaze. Her peach blossom-shaped eyes were dark and clear, and her eyelashes cast a faint shadow on her eyelids. Her red lips were full and moist, and the corners of her eyes were still slightly red, pure, and attractive.
She was like an oil painting that had been drawn with thick paint and heavy colors. All he would have to do was reach out and he would be able to blend into the intertwining colors, bringing a touch of brightness to his black-and-white life.
She was really tired. As soon as she laid down on the bed, her sleepiness rushed out from the depths of her body and surrounded her.
He bent down and held her hand.
He said, “I’m also Lu Huaiyu.”
Shen Li could barely keep her eyes open. When she heard his words, she turned her head and mumbled, “… I know… ”
She finally closed her eyes and fell into a deep sleep.
Whenever he was around, she was always at ease and could sleep well.
In her last remaining consciousness, she felt that the familiar cold cedar fragrance seemed to have become stronger.
She felt as if she had heard something, but it was already a blur by the time she tried to distinguish it.
In the end, she fell into a dark and sweet night.
In the quiet room, Lu Huaiyu sat quietly for a long time, watching her sleeping face.
His cool lips fell upon her fingertips, treating her like something very precious and pious.
He had always been outside of the rules, always on the edge of danger.
That was until he met her, and she had become his only faith.
Saint will always be loyal to you.
His deep voice echoed in the quiet night.
“Lu Huaiyu too.”
Shen Li had a deep sleep. When she woke up the next morning, it was already past eight in the morning.
She sat on the bed in a daze for a while before slowly getting out of bed.
Pulling on her slippers, she then went to the bathroom to wash up. Inadvertently, she looked up and saw herself in the mirror, causing some images from the night before to appear in her mind.
Her face immediately turned red at a speed visible to the naked eye.
After that, she brushed her teeth and washed her face as fast as she could.
However, just as she came out of the bathroom, she heard the door open.
She turned around subconsciously and saw Lu Huaiyu walking in with a lunchbox.
At this moment, the sky was bright, and everything could be seen clearly.
Today, he had changed into a white shirt, which was rare for him. The neckline had been left unbuttoned, revealing his straight collarbones. The muscles under the shirt were tough and clearly defined. The black suit pants outlined the man’s perfect figure.
He looked as cool and noble as ever.
Lu Huaiyu also seemed a little surprised.
Shen Li’s eyes met his for a moment, then she quickly looked away and nodded.
Lu Huaiyu walked over and put down the lunchbox.
“I thought you were going to sleep in today, so I thought I’d send breakfast over first and wait for you to wake up before eating.”
Shen Li was indeed a little hungry, so she pulled out a chair and sat down, but she still did not look at him.
“Second Brother, have you eaten?”
“No, I haven’t.”
Lu Huaiyu took out the breakfast items from the lunchbox one by one before sitting down beside her.
It looked like they would be eating together.
Of course, Shen Li was in no position to refuse.
Lu Huaiyu passed the spoon over and she said, “Thank you, Second Brother.”
Lu Huaiyu sized her up and after a while, he smiled.
“Shen Tangtang, why is your face so red?”
Shen Li said calmly, “I don’t think so. Maybe it’s because I just washed my face with hot water.”
“Oh, I see.”
Lu Huaiyu’s lips curved slightly, and he finally withdrew his gaze. Then, he said, “You should eat more. Aren’t you exhausted from yesterday?”
Shen Li choked, “Lu Huaiyu!”
“What?” Lu Huaiyu’s expression remained the same, although his brows were slightly raised. First, it was the car race, then the gambling. Aren’t you tired? ”
In the end, Shen Li chose to give up the battle and lowered her head to eat.
Lu Huaiyu did not tease her anymore and accompanied her as she finished her breakfast.
Just as the two of them were almost done eating, the doorbell rang.
Gu Siyang’s voice came from outside the door.
“Sister? Are you up?”
Lu Huaiyu stood up.
“I’ll open the door.”
Gu Siyang saw Lu Huaiyu appear from behind the door and was shocked.
“I’m having breakfast with Ah Li,” said Lu Huaiyu.
Gu Siyang quickly looked inside and saw that Shen Li was sitting at the table with a bowl, chopsticks, and a food box in front of her. He was relieved.
But soon, his eyes focused on the food box.
“F*ck! It’s hard to make a reservation at this restaurant! Sister! Is there any more to eat?”
Shen Li shook her head, “No.”
As she spoke, she got up to put the utensils back into the lunchbox.
She accidentally dropped the spoon with a ‘bang’.
Gu Siyang quickly asked, “Eh? Sis, is your hand okay?”
Shen Li shook her head.
Gu Siyang was worried.
“Are you tired from yesterday’s race?”
