In the quiet and dim room, the young girl’s voice was soft and sweet.
Lu Huaiyu fixed his gaze upon her. Seeing the dimples beside her lips, he smiled carelessly.
He did not know if he would get drunk if he kissed her.
Fortunately, the light was dim, so she could not see the greed in his eyes that was difficult to hide.
Seeing that he had not moved, Ning Li reminded him again.
“Second Brother, you can make your wish now.”
Lu Huaiyu came back to his senses and straightened his body slightly. He raised his hand and tugged at his collar.
He said, “I’ll give it to you.”
Ning Li was stunned. “What?”
“I said, I’ll give it to you.”
Lu Huaiyu smiled.
“You can make this wish.”
Ning Li’s eyes widened slightly.
“But… this is Second Brother’s birthday.”
Of course, this birthday wish had to be made by him.
Lu Huaiyu walked around the kitchen island, pulled over the stool next to her, and sat beside her.
His legs were very long. One of his legs was propped on the stool, while the other leg was slightly bent. His elbow was pressed on the table, and he turned his head to look at her.
There was only an arm’s length between the two of them.
However, he still seemed to feel that it was a little far, so he raised his hand and pulled her stool over to him.
Ning Li’s feet were placed on the foot of the stool. Without checking for a moment, she was brought over.
The distance between them was now even closer. His long legs easily crossed over to her side, almost wrapping her in his arms.
Then, he propped her up with one hand and said lazily, “I don’t have any wishes to make.”
Usually, whatever he wanted, he had always taken it for himself.
For this, he would never hesitate to rack his brains and devise all sorts of plans.
However, Ning Li was different.
“Don’t kids have a lot of things that they want and wish For?”
Lu Huaiyu raised his eyebrows slightly.
“I’ll give it to you. You can have whatever you want.”
The distance between them was very close. Ning Li could even feel the vigorous heat coming from the man’s body.
When he spoke, his breath, voice, and appearance were all within reach.
Ning Li moved back slightly.
“I don’t want much either. Besides, didn’t Second Brother give me one before?”
She was talking about the day when they had seen the shooting star.
Lu Huaiyu narrowed his eyes and chuckled.
“I think so. What was that wish? I think you haven’t told me yet.”
Ning Li held her breath and tightened her fingers slightly. She averted her gaze and did not look at him again.
Lu Huaiyu laughed and finally could not help but pinch her face.
“Ah Li, what wish is so mysterious that you’re hiding it from me so tightly?”
Ning Li did not say anything.
Lu Huaiyu knew that she did not want to say anything, so he did not ask any further. He raised his chin.
“Since you covered it so tightly, I’ll give you another one. Do you want it?”
Ning Li took a look. The candle on the cake was already half-burned.
As she spoke, she pressed her palms together and closed her eyes.
Lu Huaiyu was sizing her up from the side.
He did not know what wish she had made, but she seemed to be very serious.
After a moment, Ning Li opened her eyes.
Lu Huaiyu leaned over and blew out the candle.
The light was even dimmer.
She could even feel his shoulders gently pressing against hers. The scorching heat on his body was also clearly discernible.
However, he quickly retreated.
Ning Li turned around.
“I’ll turn on the lights.”
As soon as she said that, her phone that was beside her suddenly lit up.
She casually took it to take a look. It was a Weibo link that had been sent by He Xiaochen.
[ Ahhhhhhh Ning Li… Quickly, look at my brother’s latest stage performance! It’s so cool! ]
She did not need to ask her to know which brother she was referring to.
She moved her finger and was about to click on it.
Lu Huaiyu asked casually, “Is that your deskmate?”
Ning Li stopped her hand and intentionally covered that line of words.
“Yes, she’s been chasing a new idol crush recently.”
Lu Huaiyu nodded.
Ning Li was about to quit and look at it later, but He Xiaochen sent another string of photos in a row.
The chatbox on her phone was quickly flooded, so fast that it was almost blinding.
Lu Huaiyu glanced over.
It seemed normal for girls to chat with each other.
So, he only responded with “Hmm”.
“It seems that your deskmate likes him a lot.”
Ning Li cleared her throat and pressed her phone down. She decided to leave the chat first.
However, as she moved her fingers, He Xiaochen’s excited voice came from the phone.
“Ahhhhh! Ning Li, look! Look! My brother is so handsome and I love him!”
Passionate and wild.
Ning Li froze.
He Xiaochen had actually sent a voice message!
She had even accidentally clicked on it!
By the time she reacted, with the intention of cutting it off, it was too late.
In the spacious, dark and quiet room, only He Xiaochen’s voice lingered.
Ning Li, “…”
Lu Huaiyu finally looked over.
Even though there was only a floor lamp in the distance, and the light was very dim, Ning Li could clearly see Lu Huaiyu’s expression.
He reached out his hand.
Ning Li subconsciously hid her phone behind her back.
The moment she did this, she regretted it.
Why did he make her feel so guilty?
It was obvious that He Xiaochen was chasing after her own idol. She had not done anything!
However, it was already too late.
In Lu Huaiyu’s eyes, this action had a different meaning.
He raised his eyebrows, leaned over, and wrapped his arm around her side.
However, he did not take her phone. He merely leaned against the side of her stool, looking as if he was holding her in his arms.
Lu Huaiyu leaned close to her ear and asked in a low and languid voice,
“Do you like this young brother?”
The suffocating pressure came again.
When he spoke, his breath landed on her neck, feeling slightly hot.
It was very similar to the scene in her distant memory where he had laid beside her and whispered.
Ning Li lowered her head slightly.
Out of the blue, she said softly, “I like…
