Chapter 1125 - 1125 She Said She Lost It
1125 She Said She Lost It
He Xiaochen was shocked. She never thought that she would hear the words “please” from the mouth of the high-ranking head of the Lu Corporation in her lifetime!
Was he begging her?
She immediately agreed without thinking.
“Of course, no problem! But I’m not out of the airport yet. I’ll send it to my dear Ah Li when I’m done!”
Lu Huaiyu’s voice carried a smile.
“You’re welcome!” He Xiaochen quickly replied. It’s a good picture for everyone to enjoy!”
After she finished speaking, she suddenly remembered that the person on the other end of the phone was the person involved in the “good picture”.
Her voice suddenly became softer and she said with difficulty, “That… I, I didn’t mean it that way…”
Lu Huaiyu did not seem to mind. He smiled faintly and said, “Yes, I understand.”
Shen Li, who had wanted to accept the photos regardless, was speechless.
Seeing that things were starting to develop in a strange direction, Shen Li felt that it was time to hang up the phone. Otherwise, she did not know what kind of shocking things He Xiaochen would say.
Hence, she took her phone back and said, “Xiaochen, you should go back first. There’s no rush.”
“Oh, oh! Alright!”
He Xiaochen chuckled.
“Don’t worry, I’ve already gotten into a taxi!”
When she heard Shen Li’s voice coming closer, she lowered her voice and repented softly, “Ah Li, I really didn’t know that your second brother recognized me. Otherwise, I wouldn’t have shouted like that! I’ll be more careful next time!”
However, before Shen Li could answer, a low voice with a hint of laughter came from the other end of the phone, “Don’t pay any mind to that. Speaking the truth is a very valuable quality.”
He Xiaochen was dumbfounded.
Shen Li did not know what to say.
There was a moment of dead silence.
Shen Li was silent. Just as she was about to save the situation, she heard He Xiaochen exclaim, “Woo!” She quickly ended the call.
The love line she created was indeed the sweetest!
He Xiaochen happily held her face for a while, then quickly picked up the DSLR in her hand and started to check the photos.
She wanted to choose the best! These could be used for their wedding in the future!
On the other hand, Shen Li did not know that He Xiaochen’s thoughts had already flown out of the galaxy. She slowly put away her phone. The car was extremely quiet, and the atmosphere was subtle.
After a moment, Shen Li asked, “Special Assistant Yi, how much longer until we arrive?”
“About 40 minutes.”
Yi Bin immediately said.
Shen Li replied with an “Oh” and said,
“Alright, thank you.”
Why was it taking so long?
She leaned back in her chair, feeling as if every minute and second was being stretched out.
She simply turned her head and looked out the window.
After a few seconds, Lu Huaiyu said, “Yi Bin, please lower the temperature of the air conditioner a little.”
“Alright, Second Master.”
Shen Li finally turned her head and looked at him, speechless.
Lu Huaiyu looked at the young girl’s red ears and a faint smile flashed in his eyes.
“I’m afraid you’ll become too hot.”
The young girl gritted her teeth and turned her head back in resignation.
This time, even the fair skin behind her ears had turned red.
After a long, uncomfortable 40 minutes, the black Bentley finally arrived at Skyleaf City.
Lu Huaiyu took her luggage and accompanied her upstairs.
“Teacher Shen is coming back tomorrow?”
Lu Huaiyu asked.
Shen Li finally calmed down and nodded.
It was Monday the next day, and she would be resuming her classes.
The two of them entered the house and Lu Huaiyu looked around.
Shen Li and Shen Zhijin had not been home the whole week, so the place seemed a little deserted.
He walked over and opened the refrigerator. As expected, there were no ingredients inside.
“What do you want to eat tonight? Are you going out or are you staying at home?”
Shen Li curled up on the sofa, grabbed the pony pillow and hugged it.
“At home, I guess.”
She did not really want to go out since she had only just returned.
Lu Huaiyu turned around and saw that she was indeed a little tired. After thinking for a moment, he said, “Then what would you like to eat? I’ll go buy it.”
Shen Li shook her head, “Forget it, I’ll just order takeaway.”
It was not just her. Lu Huaiyu was probably quite tired after this international flight.
Especially since it had interrupted his sleep…
Lu Huaiyu nodded.
“Alright,” he said.
He took out a bottle of water from the refrigerator and handed it to her. He then ordered takeaway and seemed to be preparing to have dinner with her.
Shen Li rested for a while but then she spotted the luggage from the corner of her eye. She got up and pushed the luggage to the bedroom with the intention of unpacking her things.
Lu Huaiyu took a call in the living room before going to her bedroom.
Shen Li had already placed her laptop and other items on the table. She then kept the rest of her clothes in her cabinet.
Lu Huaiyu leaned lazily against the door frame. When he saw her open the cabinet door, his eyes suddenly narrowed.
A familiar black backpack was lying quietly in the cabinet.
He was stunned for a moment before he laughed.
“You’re still keeping this?”
Shen Li turned around and asked in surprise, “Huh? What?”
Lu Huaiyu lifted his chin slightly.
Shen Li followed his line of sight and came to a realization.
Thinking that he was trying to say that the backpack was too old, she explained, “I lost this bag a few years ago. You know that Uncle Wen closed down the car repair shop in Lincheng not long ago, right? He found it when he was cleaning up the warehouse. He then asked someone to send it over and then gave it back to me.
Lu Huaiyu’s smile faded.
Shen Li had not turned around, so she did not see his expression. Only looked at the backpack and said, “Although I don’t need it now, it’s been a part of my memories for quite a while, so I kept it.”
Lu Huaiyu slowly straightened his body.
She said she had lost it.
Then… Did that mean she had never seen the things inside?
