Chapter 206: Why Did You Drink?

Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation

Ning Li looked towards Lu Huaiyu, but she saw that he had already walked towards the sofa and sat down on the single couch.

He leaned back with his head slightly raised and his eyes closed. His posture was laid back and relaxed as usual.

Even though his eyes were a bit weary, it still did not take away his nobility and elegance.

Ning Li moved around gingerly.

Su Yuan only learned the next morning that Ning Li did not come home the night before.

“Did she go to Second Master Lu’s house again?” Ye Ci mentioned at the dining table.

When Su Yuan heard this, she was shocked and quickly looked at Ye Ming.

His face was expressionless.

However, this was obviously not something that would make him happy.

After what had happened last night, Lu Huaiyu’s name was just a reminder of the humiliation and embarrassment the Ye family had suffered at the celebration banquet.

Su Yuan frowned, wanting to say something, but she did not know where to start.

Lu Huaiyu had been so ruthless this time. Everyone could see that he was backing Ning Li up.

Thus, Ning Li spending the night at his house did not seem out of ordinary.

Ye Ci bit on her chopsticks.

“Yesterday, Brother Xiyue’s car arrived at our gate, but for some reason, Sister Ning Li didn’t come down.”

Once she said this, the atmosphere at the dining table became even more precarious.

It was fine if Ning Li had not intended on coming back from the start, but what did that mean?

Was Ning Li doing this deliberately?

Was Ning Li trying to say that the Ye family could not accommodate her?

Su Yuan’s head felt like it would explode.

Ye Ming was furious because of yesterday’s incident, which had implicated Su Yuan as well. Thus, she had to speak and act carefully.

Ye Ci hesitated and said, “I can give Sister Ning Li another call…”

Ye Ming put down his chopsticks.

“I have some things to settle at the office, so I’ll be leaving first.”

After saying that, he got up and left.

Su Yuan’s face turned pale.

Actually, Ye Ming had been relatively idle lately.

He had been busy with the Qinghe Bridge project some time back, but the dust had finally settled recently.

The reason the banquet had been so grand was to celebrate Ye Ci’s achievement as well as compensate her for all the times he had not been there for her.

Ye Ming had also said that he would be at home this weekend.

Now, he had left the house, obviously using work as an excuse.

Ye Ci frowned slightly.

“Mom, it’s okay. Dad’s just in a bad mood.”

Su Yuan sighed. “It’s Mom’s fault… Ning Li’s attitude…”

She regretted taking in Ning Li back then.

Ning Li was underaged, so after her grandmother died, her guardianship had automatically fallen to Su Yuan.

At the time, Su Yuan had thought that it would be a very simple matter because she only had to accommodate Ning Li for a year.

This way, she would have fulfilled her obligation as a mother and would not be bad-mouthed by others.

Who knew that Ning Li would be so difficult to manage?

This time, Ning Li had thrown the entire Ye family’s reputation down the drain. How could the Ye family still keep their heads up high after that?

However, it was too late for regrets.

They could not just throw Ning Li out at this time, right?

If word got out, the Ye family would really lose their whole reputation.

Su Yuan no longer had the appetite to eat.

She looked at Aunt Zhao. “I’ll go up to rest. When Ning Li comes back, please tell her to come and see me.”

“Yes, Madam.”

After that, Su Yuan went upstairs by herself.

She had been furious yesterday and had not slept well the whole night, so she looked very haggard.

Ye Ci looked at her phone, feeling a little hesitant.

Yunding Fenghua.

Worried that Lu Huaiyu had not slept well and would not have an appetite, Ning Li made a very light breakfast.

“Second Brother, breakfast is ready.”

Ning Li set the table and served him a bowl of yam porridge.

Lu Huaiyu had just woken up when the doorbell rang.

Ning Li was a little surprised.

Lu Huaiyu lived here by himself, and it was rare for anyone to come over, not to mention this early in the morning.

He looked at his phone and said, “That should be our takeout.”

Lu Huaiyu then went over to open the door.

After a while, he came back carrying a takeout bag.

Ning Li was puzzled.

“Second Brother, did you…order breakfast?”

“No.”

Lu Huaiyu put the container on the dining table.

“Hangover soup.”

Ning Li was speechless.

Lu Huaiyu glanced at her and laughed.

“Originally, I thought that you’d really need it, but I guess it’s fine if you don’t drink it now.”

It was pointless anyway.

Ning Li silently hung her head.

‘What on earth did I do yesterday?! So much so that Lu Huaiyu ordered hangover soup for me?’

Ning Li ate a spoonful of porridge and said in a small voice, “Second Brother, I promise that I won’t simply drink again.”

Lu Huaiyu saw that she was good at admitting her mistake and nodded. “It’s good that you know your mistakes. Just don’t repeat them.”

After some thought, he added, “You’re not allowed to drink when I’m not around. If you really want a drink, give me a call.”

He rarely spoke to her in such a tone, with such irrefutable resolution.

Ning Li nodded her head. “Okay.”

She was afraid that Lu Huaiyu would misunderstand, so she defended herself, “Second Brother, I don’t really like to drink anyway…”

Lu Huaiyu casually asked, “Then, why did you drink yesterday?”

Ning Li was a little stunned.

‘Why did I drink yesterday?’

Previously, Ning Li had not thought about this, but now that Lu Huaiyu had suddenly asked her this, it came to her.

She had only drunk that glass of champagne because she was in a bad mood.

However, she should have been happy yesterday since Lu Huaiyu was clearly standing up for her and taking care of everything.

Not receiving an answer, Lu Huaiyu looked up. “Hmm?”

Ning Li met his gaze, and her heart suddenly skipped a beat.

She subconsciously averted her gaze not knowing if she was feeling guilty or something else.

“It’s… It’s because…”

“Ding dong!” The doorbell rang again.

Ning Li immediately got up as she said, “I’ll go open the door.”

Lu Huaiyu frowned slightly.

Since the hangover soup had already been delivered, who could it be at this hour?

However, Ning Li had already run over to the door and opened it.

“Who-” Her voice stopped abruptly.

A beautiful and delicate face appeared on the other side of the door.

It was Xu Yini.
