Chapter 434 - Buying for Your Girlfriend
Ning Li turned her head and looked at the things that Lu Huaiyu had brought.
Toothpaste, towels, bath towels…
These were the things that he had really asked her to pick out earlier.
The tips of her ears were a little hot. She nodded and then said into the phone, “I’m at a friend’s house.”
Lu Huaiyu raised his eyebrows slightly.
He did not say anything else. He merely took the things to the bathroom and helped her organize them.
The sound of the door opening and closing could clearly be heard in the quiet room.
Lin Fengmian sat up straight and pursed his red lips slightly.
“I’ve never heard Sister mention it before.”
Ning Li raised her hand and rubbed her little finger against her brow.
“Teacher Yu knows him too.”
This meant that the person could be trusted.
Thus, Lin Fengmian quieted down.
A man’s voice suddenly came from the side.
“Fengmian, the director said to standby.”
Lin Fengmian frowned slightly. He covered her phone and said, “Got it. I’ll be there later.”
The man said, “Okay. Then, hurry up. We don’t have much time. We still have to continue recording later.”
Ning Li said,
“Mian, go ahead and do your work first.”
Although Lin Fengmian was very popular now, he had only just debuted not too long ago. It was better to try his best to cooperate with such work-related content.
The entertainment industry was a huge field of fame and fortune. If he was not popular, he would be trampled on. If he was popular, he would be envied.
Right now, his every word and action was being watched by countless people. Any detail could be magnified infinitely.
It was better to be careful with his words and actions.
After all, it had not been easy for him to seize this opportunity to become popular in his life.
Lin Fengmian said, “But on sister’s side…”
Ning Li lowered her voice slightly.
Lin Fengmian was silent for a moment before he finally gave in obediently.
“I’ve got it. Then, I’ll go over to work first. If Sister has any problems, just call me anytime.”
Ning Li laughed.
She then hung up the phone.
Turning her head slightly, she saw Lu Huaiyu leaning against the door frame lazily.
The corners of his lips curled into an extremely faint smile.
“What would you like to eat tonight?”
Ning Li thought for a moment.
Lu Huaiyu and asked, “The one on the top floor of HG?”
Thinking about how she had not eaten there for a long time, she really missed the taste of that place.
Since she had moved out of the Ye family’s house today, she deserved to have a small celebration.
Lu Huaiyu smiled.
The two of them arrived at HG at 7 o’clock in the evening.
When the elevator reached the top floor, Lu Huaiyu raised his hand to block the elevator door, allowing Ning Li to go out first.
Ning Li took a step forward first.
Lu Huaiyu was about to catch up when his gaze suddenly froze.
Then, his long legs moved forward to walk to Ning Li’s side.
“Second Brother, I remember that the store is–”
As Ning Li was speaking, she felt an additional piece of clothing on her shoulder.
Lu Huaiyu had taken off his suit jacket and draped it over her. It still carried the heat of his body temperature and the clear scent of cedar.
She was stunned for a moment and turned to look at him.
“Second Brother, what’s wrong?”
Lu Huaiyu said, “Let’s not eat at that place today.”
Ning Li was stunned.
Before she could finish her sentence, a throbbing pain came from her lower abdomen!
Ning Li frowned before she suddenly realized something: her period had arrived!
Her period had never been very accurate, and she had been so busy with the Ye family’s matters recently that she had forgotten about it.
But now, it had come at this time!
Thinking of this, she finally understood why Lu Huaiyu had suddenly placed his coat on her, and also why he had said that they would not be eating the Japanese food today.
Her face instantly turned red!
Out of the many thoughts she had ever had, she had never thought that she would be in such a situation in front of Lu Huaiyu!
“Second… Second brother…”
She was so full of embarrassment that she barely dared to raise her head to look at Lu Huaiyu.
Lu Huaiyu asked in a low voice, “You go to the restroom first. I… I’ll go buy it for you?”
Ning Li’s face was almost burning up.
However, now that she was in this situation, there was really no other way around it.
HG’s supermarket was on the first basement level, and they were now on the top floor. If they wanted to buy things, it would be quite a long journey, and it would be quite troublesome.
She could not go there at all.
In the end, she could only nod, her reply coming out as small as a mosquito.
Ning Li went to the bathroom on the top floor.
The weather in May was already a little hot, so she had only worn a thin white hoodie and blue jeans when she had gone out tonight.
There was indeed a small bloodstain on her pants now.
Ning Li closed her eyes in despair.
What could be more embarrassing than this?!
She was sure that she had not had it when she had left the house. It must have happened on the way here…
The only thing worth rejoicing about the situation was that Lu Huaiyu had discovered it quickly and it had not been seen by more people.
However, this was enough to make Ning Li want to die ten thousand times deaths.
With a red face, she obediently stayed in the restroom, waiting for Lu Huaiyu.
On the first basement level of HG, there was a large supermarket chain.
Although it was a working day, it was currently lunchtime. The white-collar workers in several commercial offices near HG had all left work one after another.
So it was still very lively inside HG.
A young man stood in front of the shelves in the feminine products section, looking at the rows of colorful packaging in silence.
He was only wearing a black shirt and black trousers. His figure was tall and perfect, and his face was cold and ascetic.
Just by standing there, he seemed to have an aura of his own.
In this commercial area… he was extremely out of place.
Many people around were secretly staring at him.
Lu Huaiyu looked at the small words above, his thin lips slightly pursed, as he continued to be silent.
Soft cotton top… Pure cotton skin…
240… 270 … 420…
Why are there so many kinds?
Which one did she use?
“Hey, young man, are you buying that for your girlfriend?”
Next to him was an auntie who could not bear to just stand by and watch any longer. So, she had taken the initiative to come forward.
Lu Huaiyu nodded, his throat feeling a little dry.
