Chapter 419 - Grow Up Quickly, Baby
As soon as she finished speaking, the whole room fell silent.
The scene seemed to freeze, even the wind and light were still.
Ning Li’s eyelids drooped slightly, and her thick and long eyelashes fluttered slightly.
Her voice had been so soft, but it had been clear enough.
It seemed like a long time had passed, but it also seemed to have passed just a moment ago.
Lu Huaiyu tilted his head slightly, and his hot breath fell on her delicate earlobe and slender neck.
Through his open shirt collar, Ning Li could see his delicate and straight collarbone.
His Adam’s apple bobbed, and he suddenly laughed.
“Ah Li, I’m a little regretful.”
Ning Li was stunned, and she subconsciously turned her head to look at him.
Lu Huaiyu’s gaze fell on her lips, and his eyes were very intense. He lowered his voice, and his voice was low and husky.
“I shouldn’t have given you that wish just now.”
Now, he had something that he wanted.
That want was now out of control, almost breaking through his rationality.
Ning Li opened her eyes. Her peach blossom eyes were sparkling, moist, and bright.
Even though Lu Huaiyu had not said what that wish was, she seemed to… know.
In the face of his burning and extremely aggressive gaze, her earlier impudence instantly dissipated.
She paused for a moment before saying, “Second Brother, you haven’t eaten your cake yet.”
As she spoke, she turned slightly and brought the small cake over.
“How big of a piece do you want?”
Lu Huaiyu stepped back slightly.
“Both are fine.”
As he spoke, he took the strawberry that had been placed in the middle of the small cake and casually brought it to Ning Li’s lips.
Ning Li tilted her head.
“Second Brother, this strawberry is for you.”
The birthday boy was the most important, so of course, he should be first in line.
Lu Huaiyu smiled.
“Help me test if it’s sweet or not.”
Ning Li hesitated for a moment, then she opened her lips slightly and took a bite.
The sweet juice exploded between her lips and teeth.
She nodded, her voice unclear.
“Yes, it’s quite sweet–”
Before she could finish her sentence, Lu Huaiyu suddenly approached her. His warm and powerful palm grabbed the back of her head, not allowing her to move anymore. Then, he tilted his head and bent his head, moving closer to her
Ning Li’s voice suddenly stopped, and her beautiful and clean peach blossom eyes widened.
Lu Huaiyu bit the strawberry.
The tip of his nose lightly brushed against her, and his hot breath intersected with hers. His thin lips were no more than a hair’s breadth away from hers.
Ning Li was completely stunned, and her mind went blank.
In the next moment, Lu Huaiyu stepped back a little, as if he was savoring the taste of the half strawberry he had just eaten.
The cream on the strawberry had smudged onto the corner of his lips.
He stared straight at her, the tip of his tongue hooked slightly, and the sweet cream was sucked into his lips and teeth.
Even though the night was dim, Ning Li could still see his handsome and noble appearance beneath the dim yellow light.
He had always appeared to be cold and ascetic, and completely untouchable.
However, at the moment, he had a smile on his face. His thin lips curled up, and the ambiguity almost broke through the night.
Ning Li’s gaze was subconsciously attracted to him. With just a glance, her heart started beating rapidly.
She wanted to look away, but for some reason, she could not move.
After a while, Lu Huaiyu slowly smiled.
“It is quite sweet.”
Ning Li was stunned, and her face instantly became hot!
The palm of Lu Huaiyu’s hand that was supporting the back of her head moved slightly forward and landed on the side of her face.
The temperature of his palm was exceptionally hot. Wherever it brushed past, it seemed to bring about a string of sparks.
In the end, his slender and well-proportioned fingers gently pinched her face.
He said, “In the future, I’ll let you eat all the strawberry tips, then I’ll eat the rest, okay?”
Ning Li’s face was already red. She could only continue staring at him like that, without any reaction.
That gaze was very similar to the night that she had stayed in his master bedroom when she had been drunk on a snowy night.
Lu Huaiyu was extremely agitated.
He lowered his head and let out a breath. After a long while, he raised his head again.
He looked into her eyes, his desire and greed almost impossible to hide.
He said in a slightly hoarse voice, “Please grow up quickly…
