Chapter 1138 - 1138 Hiding From Each Other
1138 Hiding From Each Other
The assistant could not help but mumble, “That’s so scary… He should have come to our place for a consultation. Why was he so scared?”
Gu Tinglan pondered for a moment, then looked at Shen Li and Lu Huaiyu.
“We probably won’t be able to have dinner together tonight.”
This was his patient, and the accident had happened near his clinic. Although he didn’t know the specific cause of the accident, according to the original plan, he should have appeared at his clinic around this time.
No matter what, it seemed like he could not avoid being involved in this matter.
It was foreseeable that he would have to deal with the hospital and the police in the following period of time.
It would probably be quite troublesome.
His gaze swept across Shen Li’s face. Seeing that she seemed to be in a daze, he thought that she must be recalling the unpleasant memories of her childhood, so he lowered his voice, “Ah Li, I’m sorry.”
Shen Li came back to her senses and shook her head.
“It’s nothing. After all, no one wants this kind of accident to happen. ”
Gu Tinglan then looked at Lu Huaiyu.
His cold face was calm, and there was a deep look in his eyes. No one could tell what he was feeling.
The scene at Linchuan Road was bloody and messy, so Lu Huaiyu could not possibly go there.
“Lu Er, you should take Ah Li back first,” he said.
Lu Huaiyu raised his eyes slightly and looked over.
The two of them looked at each other.
Of course, Lu Huaiyu understood what Gu Tinglan meant. After a brief exchange of looks, he held Shen Li’s hand and stood up.
The accident had still happened, but fortunately, the situation was not as serious as in her previous life. Lu Huaiyu and Gu Tinglan were fine.
Shen Li stood up as well.
When they walked out of the clinic, Lu Huaiyu saw that Shen Li’s car was parked just outside.
He turned to Shen Li and said, “You came here just like that. What did Teacher Xu say?”
Observation opportunities at the national planetarium were very rare, but she had still come here without any hesitation.
Shen Li said, “I already told Teacher Xu that I would go another day.”
Of course, this matter was not as simple and easy as she had made it out to be.
Lu Huaiyu paused, but he still nodded.
“Well, that’s good.”
“Second Brother, where are we going now?” Shen Li asked.
Lu Huaiyu stared into her eyes for a few seconds.
“Why don’t you suggest a place?”
Shen Li hesitated for a moment and said, “Why don’t we go back to Rongyue Mansion? Is Second Brother not resting today?”
Lu Huaiyu seemed to smile.
“That’s fine. If you’re going too, can you make me a cup of coffee?”
Shen Li remembered that she had indeed made him coffee a few times in the afternoon.
“Sure,” she nodded.
In the kitchen, Shen Li pushed forward the coffee that she had just brewed.
“Second Brother, try it.”
A bitter yet mellow fragrance filled the air.
Lu Huaiyu picked his cup up and took a sip.
The fragrance seemed to fill his chest.
“How is it?”
Shen Li placed both her hands on the table and leaned forward slightly, her eyes were filled with curiosity.
Lu Huaiyu put down his cup, and the corners of his lips raised slightly.
Shen Li’s lips curved into a beautiful smile.
Lu Huaiyu then handed it to her.
“You haven’t tried it yet, right?”
Shen Li took a step back and wrinkled her nose.
“Yirgacheffe coffee beans are a little sour. I don’t like the taste. You can drink it all by yourself.”
Lu Huaiyu raised his eyebrows.
“Then why did you choose this?”
There were more than 20 types of coffee beans in the collection.
“Second Brother, isn’t this what you like?”
Shen Li said as she turned around to wash the coffee machine.
Lu Huaiyu paused.
He liked to drink coffee. Other than his favorite black coffee, there were also some other flavors that he liked.
She had made him coffee more than once, but he had never mentioned that he liked Yirgacheffe.
He took another sip, then put the cup down.
A deep voice came from behind.
She responded by turning back to look at him.
Lu Huaiyu lifted his chin.
“Actually, the acidity of this cup seems to be a little too much.”
Shen Li was surprised.
“But these coffee beans were just bought not too long ago, and the roasting and grinding time was normal. Let me try it.”
She reached out for the cup of coffee as she spoke.
However, before she could touch the cup, a warm and strong hand grabbed her first, the strong force causing her body to lean forward uncontrollably.
Lu Huaiyu cupped her chin with his other hand, and his cool lips covered hers.
She was caught off guard and subconsciously called out to him.
As soon as she opened her mouth, he took the opportunity to rush forward and swallowed the rest of her words.
She was easily wrapped up in his arms, her oxygen taken away, and all the tones in her voice were blurred and broken in his kiss.
Her delicate face immediately turned red. She did not want him to have his way. The tip of her tongue moved, and she tried hard to drive him out.
He retreated a little, but just when she thought she was about to succeed, he took all of her sweetness and attacked again.
She really was no match for him and quickly lost, only letting out a weak and soft voice.
After a long time, he finally let go of her, his fingers gently rubbing her wet eyelashes, and smiled.
“Yes, it tastes a lot better now that I’ve neutralized it.”
Shen Li glared at him angrily, but her eyes were moist and did not have any deterrent force.
Just then, Lu Huaiyu’s phone rang.
He picked it up and saw that it was Gu Tinglan.
“Hello,” he said.
He answered the call saying, “Lu Er, are you with Ah Li now? ”
Lu Huaiyu glanced at her.
“Yes, I am. She’s with me. ”
Shen Li had a vague feeling that Gu Tinglan’s call was related to Dou Yi.
She asked, “How’s Uncle doing?”
Gu Tinglan heard her voice and knew what she was worried about. Consoling her, he said, “There’s no need to worry. Other than Dou Yi, who was seriously injured, one of the other two passers-by was seriously injured while the other was slightly injured. In addition to that, he hadn’t planned on going to the clinic today. Instead, he had deliberately gone to crash into people.”
Shen Li pursed her lips.
Gu Tinglan continued, “He used to have serious bipolar disorder and depression. Recently, he has had some trouble with his company’s cash flow and his wife wants to divorce him. This afternoon… the two of them had a fight… and in… a moment of impulse, he…
Shen Li was not bothered about these things.
Whatever crime the person had committed, she just wanted them to admit to it. She was not interested in knowing any of the criminal’s reasons or difficulties.
“I know. As long as Uncle is fine, it’s fine,” Shen Li said.
Gu Tinglan did not seem to want to say too much about this. The main reason he had called was to put Shen Li’s mind at ease.
Hearing her say this, he felt much more at ease.
Shen Li said, “Second Brother, I’m going to wash my hands.”
With that, she turned around and left.
Hearing that Shen Li seemed to have gone some distance away, Gu Tinglan hesitated for a moment before asking, “By the way, how did you explain to her that you were in my clinic?”
Lu Huaiyu suddenly paused.
She had not even asked.
