Chapter 1135 - 1135 I Am Here
1135 I Am Here
Even though she was trying her best to restrain herself, Lu Huaiyu was still keenly aware of the tension in her words.
She rarely did this.
Lu Huaiyu paused and said, “Alright.”
Shen Li knew that he would keep his promise.
However, as long as she did not see him, she would not be able to relax completely.
She took a light breath.
After they finished speaking, they should have ended the call.
However, neither made a move to do so. Shen Li waited for a while, but Lu Huaiyu still did not hang up.
The two of them quieted down, leaving only a tacit and subtle silence.
Some words did not need to be said to be understood.
Gu Tinglan noticed that Lu Huaiyu had not spoken for a long time and was about to ask for his phone back. However, he took a closer look and realized that the two of them were still on the phone.
Lu Huaiyu held onto the phone, showing no intention of ending the call.
Gu Tinglan frowned slightly.
Shen Li’s call had come so suddenly and it was a strange call.
Both of these people–
His assistant’s voice came from outside the door.
“Doctor Gu, there’s something here that I need you to take a look at.”
Gu Tinglan glanced at Lu Huaiyu again.
“I’ll just go over there first.”
Lu Huaiyu nodded.
After Gu Tinglan finished speaking, he walked out of the room.
Shen Li’s heart skipped a beat when she heard that.
“Uncle, where are you going?”
Lu Huaiyu looked at Gu Tinglan’s back and said, “He went to look at something that his assistant brought.”
Then, he paused for a moment and added, “He’s just next door.”
So, that meant that he had not left the clinic?
Shen Li felt a little relieved.
If it had been at any other time, Shen Li would have realized that Lu Huaiyu’s words were too direct, but at this moment, she was so tense that she completely ignored this point.
Lu Huaiyu lowered his eyes slightly, his long eyelashes covering the turmoil in his eyes.
The two of them quieted down again, but even just listening to his breathing made Shen Li feel at ease.
After Gu Tinglan signed the form, he turned around to take another look.
The door was half-closed, and Lu Huaiyu’s tall and handsome figure could be seen from where he was.
Lu Huaiyu was still holding his phone.
Gu Tinglan’s brows furrowed again.
Lu Huaiyu did not seem to be saying much either. What was going on with this phone call?
Just as he was about to go back in and ask about it again, Lu Huaiyu came out before he could do so.
He was stunned.
“Lu Er, Ah Li…”
Lu Huaiyu said.
Gu Tinglan was shocked.
It had not even been 20 minutes since he had called her back, so why was she here already?
Before Lu Huaiyu could say anything, the glass door of the clinic was pushed open.
Seeming to have sensed something, he looked up.
Gu Tinglan also seemed to realize something and turned around.
A tall and slender figure walked in. It was Shen Li.
Shen Li had indeed arrived very quickly.
On the way here, countless images had continued to replay in her mind. Even though she had been on the phone with Lu Huaiyu, she really had not dared to consider any of those possibilities.
Her forehead was covered with a thin layer of sweat because she had come in a hurry.
Even as she pushed open the door to the clinic, her heart was still beating violently, almost jumping out of her chest.
She had not had time to care about anything else, and the first thing she did was to search for Lu Huaiyu.
The moment their eyes met, her soul finally fell back to earth.
He stood there, cold and noble as usual, his phoenix-like eyes dark.
He was fine.
He was fine.
Shen Li suddenly felt her body relax, as if she had lost most of her strength. All the suppressed worries, nervousness, and fear suddenly surged up from the depths of her heart, almost overwhelming her.
Her fingers trembled, and she realized that her hands were cold.
She heard his voice. He was calling her.
She composed herself and walked in, stopping just a step away from him.
In the next moment, a warm and dry hand wrapped around her hand.
The cold touch made Lu Huaiyu’s brows furrow.
The weather was scorching today, especially since she had come in such a hurry. Her forehead was covered in sweat, but her hands were as cold as ice.
He clenched his hand even tighter and pulled her closer. In a low voice, he asked, “Why are you in such a hurry? Didn’t I tell you that I’d be waiting for you here?”
The indescribable feeling of suffocation finally dissipated the moment she touched him.
She raised her eyes slightly, and her suffocating chest was finally filled with oxygen, allowing her to breathe.
She didn’t say anything, but for some reason, that one look from her suddenly made Lu Huaiyu’s heart ache.
He leaned over slightly and looked into her eyes.
“Am I not here?”
She finally nodded.
Yes, he was here.
Nothing had happened yet.
Gu Tinglan watched from the side and could not help but ask, “Ah Li, was there an urgent matter that you were looking for Second Master Lu?”
Shen Li came back to her senses, hesitated for a moment, and nodded.
Anyone who had seen her coming over in this state would think the same way.
Especially Lu Huaiyu.
Gu Tinglan’s brows furrowed slightly. He swept her gaze across the two of them and asked, “Ah Li, how did you get here so fast? ”
Shen Li paused, “When I called Uncle, I wasn’t far from here, so…”
Gu Tinglan understood that part. However, he could not explain how Shen Li had seemed to know that Lu Huaiyu was here when she had called.
He thought for a moment before saying, “Then… why don’t you two go inside and have a chat?”
Gu Tinglan had always been good at observing people’s expressions and trying to figure out what was on their minds. His way of doing things often felt like a spring breeze, very comforting.
That was why he had taken the initiative to say this.
Shen Li replied, “That would be good.”
Gu Tinglan looked at her assistant.
“Please get Ah Li a glass of water.”
“Okay, Doctor Gu.”
Shen Li followed Lu Huaiyu and walked a few steps inside. When she heard the voice, she turned back and said, “Uncle, could you wait for me here for a while?”
Gu Tinglan was momentarily stunned, but he quickly agreed. “Alright,” he said.
She and Lu Huaiyu were both here, so he probably would not go out.
Shen Li was relieved.
Lu Huaiyu’s gaze swept over her, his eyes turning slightly dark.
After that, the two of them entered the room.
The door closed.
Lu Huaiyu turned around and looked down at her, his voice low and patient.
“Didn’t you go to the National Planetarium with Teacher Xu today? Why did you suddenly come over?”
Shen Li’s heart skipped a beat. She did not dare to look into his eyes.
Unlike Gu Tinglan, who could easily find a reason for it, Lu Huaiyu clearly knew her schedule for the day.
On the phone the day before, she had said herself that she might have to stay there the whole day and would not have much time.
But now, she had suddenly run over here.
How could he not ask this?
But how was she supposed to reply?
The room was so quiet that one could hear a pin drop. The air seemed to have stopped flowing.
For a moment, Shen Li felt as if she had been completely seen through.
She pursed her lips and suddenly hugged him. She pressed her forehead against his chest and said softly, “I just had a nightmare.”
