Chapter 205 - Completely Awake
Somehow, Ning Li could sense the questioning tone in Lu Huaiyu’s words.
She spoke somewhat nervously, “I-I remember that you told me to wait for you at the sitting area…”
Lu Huaiyu let out a very faint “oh”.
‘That means she has forgotten everything that happened after… She’s forgotten how she leaned over and refused to let go of my shirt, or how timid and dependent she had been when she had asked him to bring her home. How she had almost cried because she couldn’t change out of her pajamas and had to be led to her zipper… Her memory of last night has been wiped clean? Hmm, how interesting…’
Ning Li was clueless as to how she had ended up in the guest bedroom of Yunding Fenghua when all she could remember was waiting for Lu Huaiyu next to the banquet hall.
She regretted it a little.
Ning Li had only drank one glass of champagne, so why was the after-effect so strong?
Lu Huaiyu did not say anything. Ning Li felt that Lu Huaiyu’s gaze seemed a little different from before, but she could not pinpoint what it was.
She pinched a corner of her pajamas, swept a glance at Lu Huaiyu, and asked tentatively, “Second Brother, I-I didn’t do anything overboard last night, did I?”
Lu Huaiyu looked at her for a while before he spoke with a smile, “No.”
Only then did Ning Li feel more settled. “Then…these pajamas…”
Actually, she could vaguely recall that she changed into them herself.
That was because the dress she had worn yesterday was strewn across the floor of the guest bedroom.
If “someone” had helped her, they would not have left it like that, right?
“You were drunk last night and didn’t want to go back to the Ye family home, so I brought you back here.”
Lu Huaiyu said lightly, then took a step back and sized her up.
“This set looks like it fits you.”
His words confirmed that she had changed herself.
Ning Li followed his line of sight and took a look at herself.
The baby blue pajamas even had a pair of rabbit ears.
It matched her pair of pink carrot slippers.
After some thought, she asked, “Second Brother, whose pajamas am I wearing?”
Lu Huaiyu lived alone, so why would he have such things?
His expression was calm as he said, “There was a buy one get one free sale at the mall. The cleaning lady bought it.”
‘Buy one…free one?’
Ning Li felt a little incredulous.
The cleaning lady Lu Huaiyu hired actually went to the mall to buy such things during sales?
“I didn’t want it initially, but after thinking about it, I kept it. Then you won’t have to wear mine next time and tell me that I can’t wear it after.”
Lu Huaiyu raised his eyebrows and added, “I only have a few sets of pajamas, so at this rate, it’ll probably be all yours. Then, what am I to wear?”
Ning Li’s face heated up.
She knew that Lu Huaiyu was only teasing her, but she still felt embarrassed.
For the moment, she did not notice that he had said “next time”.
She looked at Lu Huaiyu strangely. “Second Brother, you don’t seem to have slept well?”
Lu Huaiyu only let out a faint “mm”.
He had stayed outside her room almost all night, so he had not gotten much sleep.
Lu Huaiyu had heard her stirring in bed and noticed that she was about to wake up, so he had placed another cup of warm water on her bedside table.
He had not expected her to really wake up.
She had woken up completely.
“There are some clothes on the sofa in the living room. You can put those on first.”
Lu Huaiyu had brought Ning Li back last night, so besides her phone, all her things were still at the Jinsheng Hotel.
Thinking that Ning Li probably would not have any clothes to change into today, he had gotten someone to bring some over.
Ning Li casually glanced over at the sofa.
When she saw the cluster of shopping bags, she fell silent.
‘This is just…some clothes?’
She also caught a glimpse of a few familiar brands, all of which she had seen in HG previously.
“Second Brother, isn’t this a bit too much?”
Ning Li felt embarrassed.
Lu Huaiyu had already started walking towards the kitchen.
“I got someone to select some daily wear suitable for your age. It didn’t cost much.”
HG’s executives also could not have imagined that Second Master Lu would call them to ask for women’s clothes at 8:00 am on a Sunday.
Thus, HG mall, which always opened at ten, had opened two hours earlier that day.
If not for his special instructions that these clothes should be suitable for students, they would have thought that Second Master Lu was keeping a secret girlfriend.
Of course, they were all smart enough to know who this girl was since Lu Huaiyu had closed the entire floor to take the girl shopping previously.
However, they had still managed to inadvertently step on the boss’ toes this time.
Since Ning Li had chosen a dress from G&S the last time she was there, they had packed several new arrivals of G&S this time. However, they were all turned away by Second Master Lu.
Luckily, the rest of their picks were accepted.
The HG executives were confused, but they did not dare to ask more questions and only took the G&S bags that had been rejected and quickly left.
Ning Li walked over.
They were all autumn and winter wear suitable for 18 or 19-year-old girls, including sweaters and down coats, and even a wool beret.
‘How am I supposed to take these home?’
Lu Huaiyu seemed to have seen through her thoughts.
“You can take it back to your rented place or just leave it here.”
This villa was not small, so it was not a problem to put a few sets of her clothes here.
Ning Li had originally wanted to ask him to return all these, but when she heard this, she silently swallowed the words that had been on the tip of her tongue.
“What do you want to eat for breakfast?” Lu Huaiyu suddenly asked.
Ning Li turned around and saw him standing in front of the refrigerator.
She hurriedly walked over. “Second Brother, let me do it. Why don’t you rest for a bit?”
This time, Lu Huaiyu did not insist and smiled.
“Okay, then this will offset last night’s meal.”
He was talking about the party.
Ning Li paused in her movements.
That was not just a meal. Lu Huaiyu had used his contacts and spent a lot more than just money for the party.
