Pei Song’s eyelids drooped when he heard this name.
He should have known.
It was impossible to hide your feelings for someone, even if the feelings were not declared out loud.
The early summer night breeze blew.
He was silent for a long time.
The sound of footsteps came from behind.
He turned around to take a look and saw that the man was walking towards him.
In the busy city of neon, that man was noble and aloof. Any place that he passed by, he would totally own the scenery.
Many people around him were looking at him, yet his gaze was only in this direction.
Pei Song asked, “Do you like him very much?”
The corners of Ning Li’s lips curled into a small dimple.
I like him very much.
By the time Lu Huaiyu arrived in front of Ning Li, Pei Song had already turned around and left.
He looked over there, raised his eyebrows, and then bent down slightly to look at Ning Li:
“Did you have a good time?”
Ning Li nodded.
Lu Huaiyu looked at her beautiful eyes and chuckled:
“Then, come home with me now?”
Ning Li’s heart skipped a beat, and she nodded obediently.
Ning Li followed Lu Huaiyu back to Yunding Fenghua. It was already close to eleven o’clock.
After the college entrance examination, she had rushed out for the dinner. Now that she was back, she felt tired as soon as she entered the door.
Lu Huaiyu saw that there was a hint of sleepiness on her small face.
“You didn’t drink?”
Ning Li shook her head.
“Didn’t Second Brother say that I’m only allowed to drink after my birthday?”
The corner of Lu Huaiyu’s lips curled up slightly.
This little girl was really obedient.
“Go wash up and have a good sleep.”
Ning Li replied in the affirmative and went back to her room.
Lu Huaiyu stared at her door for a while before going upstairs.
After Ning Li had washed up, she realized that Lin Fengmian had sent her a message an hour ago.
Firstly, it was to congratulate her on the successful conclusion of her college entrance exam. Secondly, it was to ask her when it would be convenient for him to go back to Yunzhou.
She had been at the hotel at that time and had not had time to look at her phone. It was only now that she saw it.
Ning Li thought for a while and replied to him.
The college entrance exam was over. She had free time on her side, so it was mostly up to him.
However, Lin Fengmian did not reply. He was probably busy.
Ning Li turned off her phone and snuggled into the pillow. Soon, she fell into a deep sleep.
The next day, Ning Li did not wake up until ten in the morning.
Lu Huaiyu had already prepared breakfast in the kitchen.
Just as she sat down to eat, she received a call from Yu Pingchuan.
After the call, Lu Huaiyu happened to come down.
Ning Li looked at him, “I might have to go back to Lincheng today.”
Now that the college entrance examination was over, she wanted to go home to take a look.
Lu Huaiyu instantly guessed what she meant.
“Do you want me to accompany you?”
Ning Li shook her head.
“Teacher Yu will also be going back to recuperate for a period of time. I might only return after some time.”
Lu Huaiyu paused.
“Will you need to stay there for a long time?”
“No, probably around ten days.”
Lu Huaiyu looked at her for a while before he laughed.
Ning Li did indeed have a lot of things to do when she returned to Lincheng.
She packed her luggage and left in the afternoon.
Lu Huaiyu did not question her any further.
If she wanted to say something, she would naturally have said it herself.
Previously, in order to accompany her during the exam, he had postponed all his work. Thus, he had accumulated a lot of work that needed to be dealt with now.
In particular, Ning Li’s college entrance exam had already ended. After that, he would have to return to the Capital. There were also many related matters that needed to be coordinated.
Two weeks passed quickly.
In the blink of an eye, it was June 24th and Ning Li finally returned to Yunzhou.
That night, or to be more precise, June 25th, in the early morning, was the time that the results of the college entrance examination would be released.
The night was dark.
In the master bedroom on the second floor.
Ning Li was sitting on the sofa reading while Lu Huaiyu was debugging the binoculars on the balcony.
The room was very quiet.
Suddenly, Ning Li’s cell phone rang.
She picked it up to take a look, then turned on the computer placed next to her. She then logged into the website, and entered her examinee number.
Lu Huaiyu seemed to have sensed something and turned around to look at her.
“The results are out?”
Ning Li typed on the keyboard, and the webpage finished loading.
Looking at the scores on it, she nodded.
Lu Huaiyu walked over, bent over slightly, and looked at the computer.
Candidate’s name: Ning Li.
Total score: 746.
Provincial ranking: 1.
Lu Huaiyu stared at her results for quite a while before tilting his head and letting out a low chuckle. His voice was low and languid.
After the college entrance examination results were released, the news that Ning Li had gotten first place in the province with a total score of 746 quickly spread among all the major groups in Yunzhou Second High school.
Ning Li’s phone was almost flooded with calls.
She was almost completely overwhelmed by all kinds of congratulatory messages.
Geng Haifan contacted her early in the morning to inform her that he wanted to invite her back to school to do some related interviews and publicity.
All the school leaders and teachers of Yunzhou Second High School were extremely excited.
Yunzhou Second High School was a famous school with a hundred years of history, and their results had always been very good.
However, they had not produced a provincial champion in ten years.
Now that Ning Li had taken the provincial champion title with a high score of 746, they were naturally extremely excited.
Ning Li simply packed up her things and carried her backpack to school.
Cheng Xiyue called Lu Huaiyu.
“Brother Lu, Sister Ning Li has already taken the title of champion in the provincial exam. She should at least celebrate properly, right?”
The corners of Lu Huaiyu’s lips held a smile.
Cheng Xiyue said lazily.
“Tomorrow is her birthday. We have to hold a good celebration! Previously, you’ve never allowed her to drink. I think you can’t stop her this time, right? I think that bottle that you previously asked me if you could keep in the wine cooler will do. I still have it here. Do you want me to send it to you?”
Lu Huaiyu laughed.
“That wine is too strong. She can’t drink it.”
“Huh?” Cheng Xiyue was stunned for a moment. However, he then could not help but laugh. “So, you didn’t drink it after all? That wine is brewed using a specialized secret technique. Although it’s superior in taste, the degree of alcohol isn’t even as strong as beer! How can this be called strong?”
Lu Huaiyu slowly sat up straighter.
“What did you say?”
Cheng Xiyue said, “That’s right. That wine is something that most people wouldn’t get drunk from drinking. That’s why I said that it’s just right to give it to little sister Ning Li to try and drink! Why, is there any problem?”
Lu Huaiyu’s gaze was deep, and there seemed to be surging waves in his eyes.
After a long time, his scarlet thin lips slowly curved up.
“So that wine…”
“You can’t get drunk.”
Ning Li had been busy at the school for a whole day. By the time she returned to Yunding Fenghua, it was already night.
She pressed the password, pushed the door open, and entered. The villa was quiet.
She walked in and saw Lu Huaiyu leaning against the sofa in the living room.
He had only turned on the floor lamp and his head was slightly lowered. No one could guess what he was thinking.
The atmosphere seemed to be a little strange.
Ning Li called out.
Lu Huaiyu raised his head.
Ning Li felt that his gaze seemed to be different from usual, and it seemed to be particularly profound.
Ning Li was a little confused. She hesitated and said, “I… I’ll go back to my room first, okay?”
With that, she walked to the guest bedroom.
Lu Huaiyu got up and slowly walked over.
Ning Li had just pushed the door open and entered when she heard Lu Huaiyu coming over. She turned around and asked, “Second Brother, what’s wrong?”
Lu Huaiyu did not say anything and closed the door behind him.
The door was locked from the inside.
