Chapter 5: She Looks Better Like This

Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation  Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation

The atmosphere froze at that instant.

Ye Ming’s complexion changed from pale to showing signs of anger. His eyes twitched vigorously.

Last month, a piece of antique, the Paul Newman’s Rolex Daytona, was sold at the Carlsberg auction for a sky-high price of RMB 130 million.

It was a mysterious buyer, and it remained a mystery to this day.

Ye Ming never thought that the mysterious man was actually Lu Huaiyu!

Most importantly, he actually could throw his watch away just like that!?

On the contrary, Ye Ming’s porcelain that was carved with light blue flowers with a moon on it could not even be compared to his watch!

How was he going to compensate Lu Huaiyu!?

Finally, Ye Cheng realized that he was in big trouble. Therefore, he hid behind Su Yuan and cried for help with a pale face.

“Mommy…”

How could he imagine that a watch could cost a fortune!?

Ye Ming took a deep breath.

“Second Master Lu, indeed, it’s my son’s fault for this incident. I’m so sorry… Ye Cheng!”

He shouted!

Ye Cheng trembled, and his eyes were exuding fear.

Although Su Yuan loved her son, she knew that this matter would not be settled that easily.

That multi-million dollar watch could cost them their entire villa! Not to mention they even insulted Lu Huaiyu.

Thus, Su Yuan gritted her teeth as she pushed Ye Cheng forward.

“Apologize to Second Master Lu, quickly!”

Ye Cheng’s arrogant behavior was nowhere to be found. He stood there helplessly and mumbled, “I’m…I’m sorry…”

“Say sorry to the person you should apologize to,” Lu Huaiyu lifted his chin and spoke softly.

Ning Li’s eyes moved for a little.

Ye Cheng was stunned, and although he was unwilling to do so, he dared not oppose Lu Huaiyu. Hence, with a red face, he apologized to Ning Li in a soft tone, “…I’m sorry. I shouldn’t… I shouldn’t have thrown a dart at you…”

Upon hearing Lu Huaiyu’s words, what else did Ye Ming not understand?

He already knew Ye Cheng was resistant to Ning Li’s arrival. Nonetheless, he never imagined that his son would do such terrible things.

Lu Huaiyu was even involved in this incident!

Ning Li squinted her eyes.

That apology. Ning Li had never heard it in her previous life.

In her past life, Ye Cheng had used the same way against her. The dart scratched her face the first day she went back to the Ye family after she was discharged from the hospital.

That was why she had fully prepared herself for it before entering the house.

However, she never thought that Lu Huaiyu would lend her a helping hand.

Ning Li scowled a little.

She owed him one, again.

Lu Huaiyu raised his brows upon seeing her expression as he knew the young lady was still angry.

“Louder.”

His tone was hoarse and sluggish, but it gave off a feeling that made people dare not disobey him.

Therefore, Ye Cheng could only speak louder, “I’m sorry!”

Yet, Ning Li did not bother about him as she walked toward the watch and picked it up.

Luckily, the dial was still intact, but there was a shallow nick on the watchband.

Ning Li took the watch, strode toward Lu Huaiyu, and stood still in front of him.

She was 1.68 meters tall and considered tall amongst girls, yet Ning Li was just as tall as his shoulders when she stood in front of Lu Huaiyu.

Ning Li lifted her head and handed him the watch. Then, she said, “Thank you.”

Lu Huaiyu looked at the young lady in front of him from top to toe.

Her silky-smooth skin was as delicate as porcelain, and her eyes were stunning too. When Ning Li looked at him, a thin layer of mist seemed to exist deep in her clear and clean pupils that were shining brightly.

Her eyes and brows were ravishing, and the ends were radiating an apathetic aura, revealing the courage that was deep within her bones.

A thought swept across Lu Huaiyu’s mind.

‘She must be gorgeous when she smiles.’

Lu Huaiyu lifted his lips and smiled at her gently.

“I helped you so much, but you’re only saying thanks?”

Ning Li was silent for a moment.

When did this man become so particular?

Lu Huaiyu was not like that when he helped her back then.

“What do you mean, Second Master Lu?”

Lu Huaiyu took the watch from her and spoke, “I think this is not a bad thank-you gift.”

Ning Li lowered her head as she followed his gaze to her wrist.

A black hairband.

The price for one hairband was just RMB 3.

Cheng Xiyue looked on from above, and he could not help but scoff in his heart.

What a cheeky man!

There were plenty of ways to stop the dart thrown by Ye Cheng, yet he chose to block it with his most expensive watch.

Lu Huaiyu even asked for a thank-you gift from the lady after that.

He was generous and even dared to ask for the hairband.

Ning Li pondered for a moment before taking off her hairband from her wrist and passing it to him.

“I know this isn’t enough. I owe you one for today’s incident.”

Lu Huaiyu scowled strangely, then smiled.

“Alright then.”

Lu Huaiyu was always frigid, noble, and mighty. As though the ice had melted when he smiled, he looked more graceful and handsome.

Ning Li was blank for a second even though this was not the first time she was seeing his face.

With such charming looks, no wonder countless socialites from the capital had a crush on him.

However, the people around them felt bizarre when they looked at them interacting.

At the same time, the wise Ye Ming was unable to react at that moment.

His heart was filled with questions and confusion as he looked at Ning Li and Lu Huaiyu.

Yet, there was still one more thing left unresolved.

After hesitating for a while, Ye Ming finally decided to bite the bullet and uttered, “…Second Master Lu, your watch…”

If it were just an ordinary item, he would simply pay for it, but that watch cost RMB 130 million!

Lu Huaiyu got his hands on the lady’s hairband, and it still carried some of her warmth.

The peaceful and warm sensation cheered him up a lot.

He then responded to Ye Ming lazily.

Ye Ming felt awkward as there were a few more words stuck in his throat, but he could not spit those words out no matter how he tried.

At last, Cheng Xiyue came to smooth things over after he had seen enough.

Cheng Xiyue walked down the stairs and took a glance at his watch.

“Second Master Lu, I see that there’s only a scratch on your watch strap, and besides, that porcelain was Uncle Ye’s beloved possession for many years. For my sake, why don’t both of you come to a compromise? Does that sound good enough?”

Lu Huaiyu nodded after he gazed at Cheng Xiyue.

Finally, Ye Ming could breathe a sigh of relief.

It would still be affordable to Ye Ming if he were to compensate for the watch strap only.

“I’m sorry to have caused you so much trouble. I’ll have someone to transfer the money into your bank account tomorrow—”

“There’s no need for that. Transfer the money to him, that’s it.”

Lu Huaiyu interrupted Ye Ming.

The ‘him’ would naturally mean Cheng Xiyue.

Cheng Xiyue was utterly shocked when Lu Huaiyu mentioned him all of a sudden.

Lu Huaiyu spoke succinctly, “Your driver fees.”

Cheng Xiyue, “…”

Why did it feel bizarre?

Nonetheless, Lu Huaiyu was unwilling to stay there any longer, so he turned around and left.

“Let’s get going.”

Cheng Xiyue smiled and waved farewell to them.

The drama was finally over.

Cheng Xiyue drove away and they left the Ye family’s residence.

After he drove for a certain distance, Cheng Xiyue could not help but take a glance at him.

Lu Huaiyu was leaning against the seat with one of his hands supporting his body.

He was holding that black hairband with his other hand.

Lu Huaiyu’s fingers were slender and did not seem to fit with that small hairband.

Cheng Xiyue asked him while raising his eyebrows, “You like it so much?”

However, Lu Huaiyu did not answer him. His eyes were half-closed, and there seemed to be waves in his eyes.

After some time, Lu Huaiyu said while laughing, “She looks better without tying up her hair.”
