Chapter 1167 - 1167 That's Not Important
1167 That’s Not Important
Shen Li was stunned.
With just this one sentence, she already understood Lu Huaiyu’s attitude.
He already knew, so he did not mind her hiding it from him.
Shen Li pursed her lips.
Lu Huaiyu’s attack on Yu Media was obviously because of her.
But even now, he still did not know why she had done this.
She was about to say something when her phone suddenly rang.
When she saw the caller ID, she was momentarily stunned before she answered the call.
Lu Huaiyu looked over.
Gu Tingfeng’s voice seemed to carry a smile and he sounded as gentle as ever.
“Is the celebration party over?”
Shen Li was dumbfounded.
Her third uncle had found out the news very quickly.
The Gu family did not know about this either, but it was obvious that everyone would know after tonight.
“Yes, I just came out of the hotel and I’m on my way home.”
“Is Lu Huaiyu with you?”
Shen Li and Lu Huaiyu looked at each other.
There were too many people at the banquet, and many of the guests were very important in the business world.
It was perfectly normal for Gu Tingfeng to know about this.
“You didn’t drink, right?”
Shen Li was at a loss for words.
She held her forehead helplessly.
“Don’t worry, I didn’t drink.”
Lu Huaiyu’s lips curled up.
It was obvious what the third master of the Gu family was asking about. It was obvious that someone’s dark history of drinking was too scary and had left a serious psychological shadow in everyone’s heart.
Shen Li was very embarrassed, but after thinking about it, she found that she had no reason to refute it so all she could do was bear with it.
Gu Tingfeng was relieved.
“By the way, did Yu Yu offend you in the past?”
Shen Li paused.
Gu Tingfeng had obviously called to ask this question.
Even he could tell.
After a few seconds of silence, she said, “That’s right. Yu Cheng and Yu Yu… did something to me before, so I did hold a grudge against them.”
Lu Huaiyu crossed his long legs, as his well-defined fingers tapped gently on his knees.
Gu Tingfeng understood.
Shen Li was waiting for him to continue asking her more questions, but he suddenly changed the topic and said, “You must be tired today. You should go home and have a good rest tonight, okay?”
“Oh, okay…” Shen Li replied.
“Your Art Gallery in Hong Kong City is almost done. Would you like to come back and take a look?”
“Yes, thank you, Third Uncle,” Shen Li nodded.
She hung up the phone and looked at Lu Huaiyu.
He should have heard everything that had been said just now.
As expected, Lu Huaiyu called out to her.
“Huh?” Shen Li’s heart tightened.
If he asked, if–
“Previously, Yu Cheng and Yu Yu… ”
Shen Li gripped her phone tightly.
Lu Huaiyu momentarily paused to think before saying, “Have they made you unhappy for a long time?”
Shen Li was stunned. She had not expected him to ask about this.
After a moment of silence, she replied, “Yes.”
Lu Huaiyu nodded.
Shen Li waited for him to continue asking, but he did not say anything else.
The car fell into silence again.
After a while, Shen Li’s lips moved, but just as she was about to speak, the car slowly stopped.
Yi Bin said, “Second Master, Miss Shen, we’re here.”
Only then did Shen Li realize that she had already reached her home.
She placed her hand on the door handle of the car and said, “Second Brother, I’ll go upstairs first then, okay?”
“Alright,” he said.
She pushed the door open and got out of the car, walking towards the building.
Lu Huaiyu leaned back in his chair, quietly watching the view of her back.
In fact, she was wearing a mermaid-style dress today, and her long black hair hung down. She looked completely different from the time they first met, but when he looked at her, she still fit exactly in his memory.
That was true.
After all, it had always been her.
In the next moment, she suddenly turned around and walked back.
She took off the coat and handed it over.
“I forgot to return this to you.”
Lu Huaiyu smiled and took it.
“Actually, it doesn’t matter if you return it or not.”
Everything of his was already hers, let alone a piece of clothing.
Shen Li looked at him through the window, but she did not leave immediately.
After a moment, she asked in a low voice, “Second Brother, aren’t you curious about what Yu Cheng and Yu Yu did?”
She was the one who brought this up first.
“That’s not important,” Lu Huaiyu said.
Shen Li was stunned.
Lu Huaiyu’s thin lips parted slightly.
“The important thing is that they made you unhappy.”
That was enough.
His tone was very calm, but there was a bit of biting coldness in the calmness.
He had no other reason to target the Yu family. She was the only reason.
Shen Li returned home and saw Shen Zhijin waiting for her in the living room.
Shen Li nodded.
She had already told Shen Zhijin about the party before she left in the afternoon.
He was waiting for her to come back.
Shen Zhijin looked at her carefully to make sure that she had not drunk any alcohol and that she was fine. Only then did he feel relieved.
“I prepared some milk for you. It’s in the kitchen. Have a drink before you go to bed.”
“Thank you, Dad.”
Shen Li went back to the bedroom to change out of her dress, took a shower, and then went to the kitchen to get some milk.
She pulled out a chair and sat down in front of the table. She held the cup and looked at the glass candy jar on the table in a daze.
There were more candies inside than before, and they were piled together in a colorful way, almost overwhelming the few sheets of paper inside and the stacked balloons.
She sat there for a long time as countless images flashed through her mind.
It was not until the milk in the cup had gone a little cold that she finally finished the rest and went to bed.
Haicheng, the Yu family’s old residence.
One of the bedrooms on the third floor was still lit.
A woman was sitting on the bed with her legs bent, with her hair a little disheveled.
She hugged her leg with one hand and held her phone with the other. The faint light from the screen shone on her face, making it look pale.
It was Yu Yu.
Ever since the day that Yu Ming and his wife had fought with her and Old Master Yu had found out that she had deliberately ordered someone to cause Yu Cheng to become addicted to drugs, she had been locked up in here.
Three meals were promptly delivered every day, but she was not allowed to go out.
The Yu family had announced to the public that she was sick and needed to stay in bed to recuperate, so for 24 hours a day she was not allowed to step out of this room.
The door was locked, and there were special bodyguards standing guard outside.
They allowed her to continue living in her own bedroom and had not even confiscated her phone, allowing her to communicate with the outside world normally.
Other than the Yu family, everyone else thought that she was really sick.
They were not worried that Yu Yu would spread the news that she was under house arrest because even Yu Yu knew that she could not escape.
She sat there stiffly, scrolling through her phone mechanically.
Suddenly, the most searched term on the list caught her attention.
#Shengguang Media’s President, Shen Li #
She suddenly stopped moving and stared at the words.
The president of Shengguang Media… The president of Shengguang Media… was Shen Li?
Her hands trembled slightly as she clicked on the entry.
On the topic square, the first post was related to this.
