Chapter 241: Stay
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Considering that there were other people nearby, Mei Li did not ask Xu Yini what had happened.
Mei Li still had to deal with this mess.
There were so many people here. If someone leaked this, it would certainly have a negative impact on Xu Yini.
Mei Li patted Xu Yini’s arm, went out and made a round of phone calls, then talked to the two artists and staff in the room.
Everyone understood what it meant implicitly and explicitly.
The newcomer’s show was lined up first, so she left the dressing room soon after.
Mei Li then chatted with the middle-aged female singer for a while.
About half an hour later, Xu Yini’s makeup was finally done.
“I’m going to the bathroom.” Xu Yini said as she stood up.
Mei Li walked over at once.
“Yini, this dress is too cumbersome. Let me accompany you.”
As she spoke, she had already held up the hem of Xu Yini’s skirt.
The assistant next to her also hurriedly followed.
The three of them left the dressing room.
Once the door closed, the singer’s makeup artist breathed a sigh of relief and gently patted her chest.
“I really couldn’t tell that Xu Yini was such a difficult person…”
They were all present and had a clear understanding of what had happened earlier.
In the whole incident, the previous makeup artist had not actually been at fault.
The makeup artist had only asked for Xu Yini’s opinion, yet she had been scolded in public and kicked out.
It was just too humiliating.
Anyone would feel bad for the makeup artist.
The female singer had a good relationship with her, so she laughed.
“Well, she has a good backing, so naturally, ordinary people can’t compare to her.”
Xu Yini was a popular star and came from a prestigious family. There were not many celebrities in the circle that could beat her.
The makeup artist just had bad luck.
“Yeah, I guess it’s normal for a Young Miss to have a little temper.”
The makeup artist shrugged her shoulders and closed the makeup box.
“She was obviously fine before. I don’t know why she suddenly felt such a rage”
After coming out of the bathroom, Mei Li took Xu Yini to a small lounge.
“Yini, why did you suddenly get so angry just now?”
Mei Li frowned.
“There were so many people in the dressing room. If someone had taken a video or recorded the audio, what would happen to you?”
Xu Yini ruffled her hair, completely unbothered.
“Well, they would need the guts to share it.”
Mei Li wanted to say something but stopped.
Everyone was afraid of Xu Yini, so perhaps they would not dare to do anything.
Even if they did, Xu Yini would be able to respond quickly. However, even so, this was still a bad situation.
“I’ll keep an eye on this matter, but you should pay attention to your actions. Don’t let other people get a chance to blackmail you. You’ll be going on stage soon, so you have to adjust your attitude as soon as possible.”
Xu Yini’s solo performance would be performed before midnight as the finale.
Originally, she would not qualify to perform the grand finale due to her seniorit. However, as long as she was agreeable to it, it would not be a problem.
Xu Yini began to look at her phone again and felt a lingering frustration. “Fine.”
She really wanted to ask Lu Huaiyu where he was at the moment, but she knew that Lu Huaiyu would not reply.
When Mei Li saw Xu Yini like this, she guessed that it was probably related to Second Master Lu.
A third-party observer could see that this had been Xu Yini’s unrequited love since the beginning. If Lu Huaiyu was even the slightest bit interested in her, he would not be treating her like this.
However, Mei Li did not dare persuade Xu Yini on this matter because it was not her place.
It was already after 9:00 pm after dinner.
Lu Huaiyu got up, picked up his jacket, seemingly ready to leave.
Ning Li froze.
“Second Brother, where are you going?”
Lu Huaiyu looked calm. “To the hospital. There are some things I haven’t asked yet.”
Ning Li had originally thought that he would be going to a hotel and had not expected him to go to the hospital.
“Wouldn’t it be the same if you go tomorrow? Are you not planning to sleep tonight? What about other hotels…”
Lu Huaiyu smiled. “I’m not used to staying outside. It’s just one night, so it’s nothing.”
Ning Li remembered that his sleep pattern was indeed very bad.
‘Was he planning to stay up all night at the hospital?’
“You should go to bed early.”
Lu Huaiyu said as he was about to open the door and leave.
Ning Li hesitated for a moment and blurted out. “Second Brother, why don’t you stay here tonight?”
Lu Huaiyu paused in his footsteps.
Ning Li wanted him to get some rest.
Seeing that Lu Huaiyu did not say anything, she thought he did not want to stay, so she said, “I’ve stayed at your house twice before. Although this place can’t be compared to Yunding Fenghua, the quilts and sheets are all clean. I purposely sunned them yesterday.”
She then pointed to a room next to her. “That room isn’t occupied. If you don’t mind, perhaps you can stay there for one night?”
This house was not large, but there were three compact bedrooms.
Ning Li and her grandmother had their own rooms, and there was a guest bedroom that had always been empty.
After a while, Lu Huaiyu nodded gently.
The spare room really was empty. Ning Li carried the sheets and quilt and made the bed.
Fortunately, Ning Li hired someone to clean the house regularly while she was away. Otherwise, she would be too embarrassed to offer Lu Huaiyu a place to stay.
Lu Huaiyu walked over with a relaxed smile. “It’s fine.”
Ning Li looked around again.
“There’s no heating in this house, so it gets quite cold at night.”
Luckily it was only for one night, so it should pass quickly.
“Second Brother, you should rest early. I’ll go back to my room.”
Lu Huaiyu nodded.
Ning Li turned around and went back to her room.
Lu Huaiyu took a look around.
The quilt, sheets, and everything were all Ning Li’s.
As he got closer, he could still smell the freshness of sunlight on the quilt.
It was late at night.
Moonlight spilled in from the window.
Actually, Lu Huaiyu was not sleepy and sat against the headboard with slightly closed eyes.
Suddenly, he heard the sound of a turning doorknob from next door.
The rooms were not soundproof, so he figured that it was Ning Li coming out of her room.
Her footsteps were very light as she seemed to be afraid of disturbing him.
Lu Huaiyu could even imagine her careful actions.
His lips curved upwards as he silently laughed.
Then, he heard the door on the left opening.
Lu Huaiyu was stunned.
‘Wasn’t that the bathroom?’
Before he could react, the sound of water from the showerhead came from inside.
Ning Li had spent quite a long time at Second Garage during the day, so she was sweaty and her clothes were dirty.
She had only gone to take a shower when she thought that Lu Huaiyu had fallen asleep.
Although her movements were very light, everything seemed to be amplified in the silent darkness of the night.
Lu Huaiyu could hear every movement clearly because he was only a wall away.
He leaned against the headboard without moving.
After a long time, he raised his hand to rub his brows. His Adam’s apple rolled up and down and he exhaled gently to calm himself.
