Chapter 311 - Is Quite Well-Behaved
Lu Huaiyu’s voice was low and soft. Due to his fever, it was also a little hoarse.
Ning Li felt a subtle tingling feeling in her heart.
A body for a body…
Was he referring to a photo of them together?
Ning Li wanted to refuse, but she remembered that she did not seem to have any pictures of the two of them in her phone.
Seeing that she had not moved, Lu Huaiyu raised his eyebrows slightly.
“Should I take it?”
As he spoke, he had already turned on his camera.
“Look at the camera.” He said as he raised his chin.
His tone was as unhurried as ever, as if this was an ordinary small matter.
That was true.
It was just a group photo.
Hearing this, Ning Li raised her eyes and looked at the camera.
In the picture, the two of them were standing very close to each other.
Her cheeks were a little hot, so she subconsciously moved away slightly.
However, just as she moved, she felt something touch her waist.
It was Lu Huaiyu’s arm.
He was standing beside her, his left arm propped up around her waist.
The distance between them had already been very close. Now, as she moved, her unbelievably slim and soft waist fit snugly into the curve of Lu Huaiyu’s arm.
Her body seemed to be even closer to him, and in an instant, her entire body was enveloped by the cool scent of cedar from his body.
Through her clothes, she could feel the smooth and flexible lines of his arms, as well as the hidden strength of his muscles.
As if she had been scalded, she immediately moved forward and distanced herself from his arm slightly.
She quickly glanced at him through the camera screen again. He seemed to be focusing and did not pay much attention to this small interlude.
Ning Li was slightly relieved.
“Your head seems to be a little off.” Lu Huaiyu said.
Ning Li was a little confused. She looked at the screen again. Before she could see clearly, Lu Huaiyu suddenly raised his hand and gently tilted her head to the side.
Ning Li felt that the cool fragrance seemed to have become more intense.
Ning Li was stunned. She had not been ready yet…
Before she could speak, Lu Huaiyu checked and laughed:
“The one just now was out of focus.”
He wanted to take another one.
This time, he let go of her hand.
Ning Li felt unsure about where to put her hands and feet.
She and Lu Huaiyu were too close to each other.
They were so close that if she moved even a little, she would inevitably touch his body.
“Look straight ahead.” Lu Huai reminded her.
She blinked and looked at the camera again.
Lu Huai pressed the camera button again.
This time, it seemed to have gone very smoothly. Lu Huai opened it, looked at it, and nodded.
“Let’s keep this one.”
Ning Li then remembered that he had taken the picture with his phone.
However, wasn’t this photo for her?
“Second Brother, I think that you should use my phone…”
Lu Huaiyu did not seem to think that this was a problem.
“I’ll send it to you later.”
That was fine.
Ning li nodded, without hesitating any further.
As Lu Huaiyu spoke, he walked to the silver fridge next to him.
“What would you like to drink?” he asked, as he opened the fridge door.
Without the inexplicable pressure from before, Ning Li felt much more relaxed.
She said, “Water will do.”
Lu Huaiyu took out a bottle of water, unscrewed the lid, and handed it over.
Ning Li accepted it.
“Please, take a seat.”
As Lu Huaiyu spoke, he walked towards the living room.
Ning Li followed him, and her eyes suddenly focused.
His living room was very spacious. It even seemed a little empty, because it had been a long time since he had stayed here.
Therefore, the book on the coffee table in the living room was particularly eye-catching.
Ning Li took two steps forward and saw the cover more clearly.
The History of Time.
She recognized it.
This was the book that had been placed on the desk in the large study room at Yunding Fenghua.
When she took a closer look at the book, she also saw a hand-drawn picture next to it.
It had been simply drawn, but it was not difficult to see that it seemed to be the back of a person.
She was stunned.
Just as she was about to go closer and take a look again, Lu Huaiyu also noticed the book on the coffee table.
He frowned slightly.
Yesterday had been a troublesome day. After he had received Ning Li’s call, he had placed the drawing and the book here. He had ended up with a fever in the morning and forgot about it.
He walked over and quietly placed the drawing back into the book.
Ning Li was stunned.
The picture actually was of a person’s back.
Lu Huaiyu had brought this book over from Yunzhou to the Capital.
Was it actually just a means to carry that drawing here?
What kind of person was worthy of him doing this for?
Lu Huaiyu put the book away and opened the photo album in his phone.
The latest photo was the one of him and Ning Li.
He glanced at it and sent it to Ning Li.
“I sent the photo to you.” He said casually.
Ning Li came back to her senses and took her phone out of her trouser pocket.
Lu Huaiyu sent her the photo.
In the photo, Lu Huaiyu was standing behind her with his chin slightly raised. His face was clear, cold, and noble. His thin lips were slightly curved, and there was an extremely casual smile on his face.
It was very similar to the photo of him when he was 16 years old, but it was sharper and more restrained. He appeared to be even more otherworldly and unapproachable.
As she looked at the camera, she that her eyes were slightly widened, which made her appear to be a little… confused.
“…Second Brother, don’t I look a little dazed like this?”
She argued softly.
Hearing this, Lu Huaiyu looked at his phone. Then, he raised his eyebrows slightly and chuckled.
“Really? You look quite obedient.”
There was also a magnified photo on his phone screen.
In the photo, he was next to her. His hand was pressed to the side of her head. In his deep eyes, there was a look of unconcealed indulgence.
Her head was slightly tilted, and there was a hint of surprise and astonishment on her beautiful and pure little face.
However, she looked so obedient… So obedient, that she was almost leaning on his shoulder. Her eyes were full of trust and obedience.
At a glance, it looked like she was completely nestled in his arms.
It was an extremely intimate gesture.
Hearing Lu Huaiyu’s words, Ning Li pouted.
Lu Huaiyu was four years older than her. In addition, she was still in her third year of high school, which made people feel as if she was much younger than him.
That was emphasized even more in that photo.
In it, she really appeared to look like a child. They did not even look like they were in the same age group at all.
However, she could not ask him to take another photo. In the end, it was just a photo. She was not planning on showing it to other people anyway.
It… would just stay in here.
Ning Li took another look at the photo, before finally turning off her phone.
Out of the corner of her eye, she could not help but look at the book. When she thought of the hand-drawn picture, she pursed her lips.
In her previous life, Lu Huai had always been single. He had never had any scandals, and he had never had an intimate relationship with anyone that exceeded the boundaries of friendship.
Everyone thought that he did not care about such things at all.
It turned out that it was not because he did not care.
He already had someone that he cared about.
She drank a mouthful of water, and the cold liquid flowed down her throat.
The coldness seemed to eat away at her entire body.
She shook her head, finally sobering up a little, and suppressed the inexplicable bitterness in her heart.
She needed to forget about Lu Huaiyu and this matter.
What right did she have to be unhappy about it?
