Chapter 1127 - 1127 Looking at Each Other
1127 Looking at Each Other
He stood against the light, and the orange-red afterglow of the setting sun shrouded his body, but for some reason, his phoenix-like eyes were particularly dark and cold.
Shen Li was stunned.
“What’s wrong… Second Brother?”
She rarely saw such an expression on Lu Huaiyu’s face. For a moment, she felt that he could see all the way inside her.
However, it was only for a moment. Hearing her voice, Lu Huaiyu’s eyelashes fluttered slightly, and the sharpness in his eyes quietly disappeared.
He said, “I just suddenly recalled some things from the past.”
His voice was low and unhurried as usual.
As he said that, he walked over.
Shen Li was surprised, “What’s the matter, Second Brother? Why are you so lost in thought?”
Lu Huaiyu had already walked to her side. Hearing her words, he paused for a moment and seemed to laugh as he met her bright black peach blossom-shaped eyes.
He said, “I was thinking about the first time you called me.”
Shen Li was stunned.
He tilted his head slightly.
“I remember that you came home late that day, so Su Yuan deliberately made things difficult for you, right?”
Shen Li nodded and responded.
“Why did you think of calling me?”
He continued to ask.
Shen Li blinked.
“Because Second Brother is Second Brother.”
The Ye family dared to find trouble with her, but they would never dare to offend Lu Huaiyu in the slightest.
She raised her head and smiled.
“Couldn’t I just hug your thighs and make use of you?”
Her eyes curved.
Lu Huaiyu stared into her eyes for a few seconds before chuckling.
“Sure, why not? I’m here just for you to hug.”
Shen Li nodded her head in satisfaction and asked, “It’s been so long since. Why did Second Brother suddenly think of this?”
That’s right, it had been so long. How could he not have noticed it at all?
After the accident at Yanhui Mountain, she had not dialed that number for a whole year.
It was not until he finally saw her back that night, until he chased her all the way to the Ye family, officially met her, and supported her that she made that call when she was in trouble.
She had not even known that he had been in a car accident. When they were at the headquarters of the Fino laboratory in Bai City, she had asked him worriedly if the scar on his back was from the car accident.
If she had seen that name card, if she had known that he was the one she had saved, why would she have asked those questions?
She did not know anything.
However, his first impression had been the strongest, which was why he had intentionally or unintentionally ignored the obviously wrong things.
It was only now that he suddenly came to his senses.
She had not gotten the business card, so how had she managed to call him?
That included how she had found out that he did not like onions and what kind of coffee he drank.
Those were things that he had never mentioned to her, yet she knew everything.
And, from the very beginning, she had placed complete trust in him.
… If she had not known that he was the person at Yanhui Mountain, then how could anyone in this world give all their trust and dependence to someone they had just met?
Especially since she had grown up in such a family, it was obvious that she would not easily hand over these things.
Shen Li did not mind his silence.
That was because she had only asked that question casually and did not really want him to say anything.
She held his hand.
“Second Brother, let’s go eat. Hmm? ”
She suddenly paused and looked down at their hands, feeling a little surprised.
“Why is Second Brother’s hand so cold?”
Lu Huaiyu returned to his senses and looked at her again.
Her head was slightly lowered, and a few strands of hair had fallen to her cheeks. Her tone was light and natural, and she was staring at his hand seriously.
He suddenly called out to her.
Shen Li raised her head, “What?”
His Adam’s apple rolled.
It was such a simple sentence, but it was so difficult to say it at this moment.
At this moment, the phone in his pocket suddenly rang.
Shen Li saw that he did not move and asked, “Second Brother, don’t you want to see who sent the message?”
Lu Huaiyu pulled himself together and took out his phone.
The message was from Gu Tinglan.
[ Don’t forget the consultation at 3 p.m. tomorrow. ]
It was like a cold wind had suddenly blown into a stuffy and closed space.
He suddenly became clear-headed.
Gu Tinglan must have known that he had returned to the country and had specially sent him this message to ask him to go over for a routine psychological counseling tomorrow afternoon.
Initially, he had rejected these requests. However, after several negotiations with Gu Tinglan, both of them had taken a step back.
Gu Tinglan stopped trying to persuade him to take the medicine and he went to the clinic regularly for psychological counseling.
In fact, his overall condition was constantly improving. It was only because he had accompanied Shen Li to Leland this time that his work and rest had been reversed, so Gu Tinglan had decided to remind him again.
He shifted his gaze and looked at Shen Li again.
If he continued to ask more questions, it would mean that everything that had happened in the past would have to be unraveled again.
In that case, it was highly possible that she knew about him…
“It’s Gu Tinglan.”
He quickly replied with an [ Okay ], then closed the screen and put his phone away.
“He asked me out to dinner tomorrow.”
They had a good relationship, so Shen Li did not doubt him. She nodded, “Oh.”
He held her hand tightly and said in his usual low and gentle voice, “Let’s go, the food will get cold if we’re late.”
With that, he led her to the living room.
In the bedroom, the cabinet door had already been closed, as if nothing had happened.
Shen Li felt that Lu Huaiyu was different from usual tonight.
However, she could not put her finger on what it was exactly.
At the dining table, she ate her porridge as she sized up the man sitting opposite her from time to time.
Lu Huaiyu quickly caught this small action.
He looked over and raised his eyebrows slightly.
“Why aren’t you eating properly? Why do you keep peeking at me?”
“I’m not peeking.”
Shen Li coughed.
“I’m just thinking, did Second Brother have something to ask me just now?”
Lu Huaiyu put down his chopsticks and pondered for a moment.
He had actually restrained himself enough, but she clearly knew him more than he had expected.
Just as he was thinking about what to say, Shen Li’s phone suddenly lit up, and a message popped up on the screen.
She clicked on it and found that the messages were all from He Xiaochen.
Well, she had sent her the photos she had taken earlier.
[ Ah Li! These are the ten best-looking pictures that I’ve selected! Take a look and see if you like it. In addition, there are hundreds of original pictures. I’ll send them to you online! ]
Shen Li was speechless.
The photos came through too suddenly and immediately flooded the screen.
From the moment she and Lu Huaiyu appeared to the moment they left, it was a short distance, yet He Xiaochen had managed to capture a coherent story.
In all the photos, Lu Huaiyu was holding her hand tightly and protecting her very carefully.
The last picture was of the two of them standing at the exit.
He was pushing the suitcase with one hand and holding her hand with the other. There was a crowd behind him and there was constant traffic in front of him.
His head was lowered slightly while she was looking up, as if she was saying something.
They were clearly looking at each other.
The surrounding scenery was blurry, with only their appearances being the clearest.
She picked up her phone.
“Xiaochen just sent me the photos.”
Lu Huaiyu stared at the last photo on the screen, staying silent for a few seconds. Then, he smiled and said, “Yes, this is what I wanted.”
