Chapter 447 - You’ve Been Plotting Against Your Brother for a Long Time
The man’s voice was deep and hoarse, with a hint of a smile in it. It was lazy and seductive.
Ning Li was in his embrace. Leaning against his flat and sturdy chest, she could clearly feel the warmth of his body and his heartbeat.
She was so embarrassed by his words that her face turned red.
She wanted to say something, but he did not give her a chance. He swallowed the rest of her words into his mouth, leaving only a few vague syllables.
He kissed her and asked with a smile, “… What do you say? Will you teach your brother?”
Ning Li was burning up.
The Lu Huaiyu she knew was proud and noble, cold and ascetic. He was like a flower on a high mountain that could not be touched.
Her deepest impressions of him were like the snow on the peak of the mountain and the moon in the human world that seemed to be forever untouchable and unreachable.
She never thought that there would be a day when the snow on the peak of the mountain would flow down and the moon on Earth would suddenly fall towards her.
She whimpered softly, embarrassed and soft.
“Lu Huaiyu, please don’t bully me…”
Hearing this, Lu Huaiyu laughed and finally let her go.
He tilted his head as if he was thinking about something. After a moment, he leaned close to her ear as if he was trying to negotiate with her.
“Then… are you here to bully me?”
Ning Li put her hand on his chest and stared at him with her beautiful eyes.
This man’s thoughts were so obvious!
Lu Huaiyu let out a soft “ah” as if he was regretting her rejection.
Then, he bent down slightly and asked with a slow smile, “Then, can I beg you?”
Ning Li finally could not bear it anymore and covered his mouth.
Lu Huaiyu finally could not help but laugh. His deep eyes curved and his chest shook.
He took her hand and kissed her fingers gently. He said softly, “How could I bear to do it?”
His thin lips still carried a scorching warmth. Gently and fondly, he pressed his lips against her hand and looked straight into her eyes. He sighed.
“It’s too late, baby.”
She had no idea how important she was to him.
Lu Huaiyu was finally willing to let her go. Ning Li finally heaved a sigh of relief and picked her phone up to continue replying to the messages.
Seeing this, Lu Huaiyu raised his eyebrows.
“You really don’t need any help?”
Ning Li puffed up her cheeks.
“I really don’t need any help.”
Gu Siyang was obviously still out having fun. After she replied, he replied almost instantly.
“Ning Li, why did it take you so long to reply? I thought you were asleep!”
Ning Li felt guilty for a moment.
How was she going to explain what happened during that long gap, she…
After thinking for a long time, she could only find an excuse that she was busy.
Fortunately, Gu Siyang was a careless person, so he was not bothered about such things. He had only asked casually, so it would be easy for her to deal with.
Lu Huaiyu did not leave. He merely sat to the side with one hand propped up, looking at her as if he was very patient.
Ning Li replied to a few messages. However, seeing him like this, she could not help but ask, “Second Brother, aren’t you going back to sleep?”
Lu Huaiyu paused and smiled.
“I want to see my girlfriend. It’s more important than sleeping.”
He had thought about this for so long.
Now that he had finally gotten it, it was like a beautiful dream.
He wanted to confirm that everything was real.
Hot air seemed to surge up within Ning Li and it took her a long time before she could even spit out a word.
Lu Huaiyu saw that she was extremely obedient, and his throat tightened slightly.
However, he really could not bear to tease her anymore, so he changed the topic.
“Who was on the phone just now?”
Ning Li took a look and opened her mouth somewhat strangely.
Her relationship with Cheng Xiyue was not bad, but their daily interactions were not particularly frequent, especially during this period of time.
She swiped down and discovered that Cheng Xiyue had also just sent a message over.
[ Younger sister Ning Li, I forgot to ask you, do you want to drink after your birthday? I have a recommendation here. I brought it for Brother Lu previously, and he thought it was pretty good too. ]
Below was a picture.
Seeing the familiar wine bottle on it, Ning Li instantly froze.
Of course she recognized it. This was the bottle she had drunk from which she had pretended to be drunk at Rongyue Residence previously!
So this wine had been gifted by Cheng Xiyue?
Lu Huaiyu and the tip of his brow raised slightly.
“Oh? It’s already so late, why is he looking for you?”
Ning Li instantly felt guilty.
“Nothing, he’s just recommending wine for me. Moreover… it just so happens to be the one that I drank previously.”
Lu Huaiyu thought of something and took out his phone.
He had muted it, so there had not been any notification.
But actually, Cheng Xiyue had also called him and sent him a message.
[ Brother Lu! Sister Ning Li drank from that bottle of wine, didn’t she? ]
[ Why did you say that the wine was strong? ]
[ Why aren’t you replying? ]
[ Brother Lu! It’s almost midnight! Where are you? ]
The last message was just sent.
[ Brother Lu… be a person. ]
Cheng Xiyue was extremely smart. After the call with Lu Huaiyu in the afternoon, he had felt that something was wrong.
He recalled that Lu Huaiyu had called him at that time and said that he wanted to put that bottle of wine in the wine safe…
Cheng Xiyue had thought of a certain possibility, which put his entire person in a bad mood. He immediately called Lu Huaiyu.
Lu Huaiyu had not picked up, so he called Ning Li. In the end, Ning Li had not picked up either.
How could he not panic?
Lu Huaiyu raised his eyes to look at Ning Li, the corners of his lips curving slightly.
“Hmm, that wine is not bad.”
Ning Li was stunned. “Second Brother, did you drink it?”
Lu Huaiyu propped himself up with one hand, the corners of his lips holding a smile as he looked at her, enunciating each word clearly.
“Cheng Xiyue said that the alcohol content of that bottle is very low, so you can’t get drunk. So, I think it’s good.”
Ning Li’s eyes widened slightly, and her mind instantly went blank!
Lu Huaiyu came closer and asked with a smile, “Ah Li, do you think that wine is good?”
Ning Li’s ears were almost completely red.
Finally, she knew why Lu Huaiyu was behaving like this tonight.
Lu Huaiyu seemed to be extremely patient, waiting for her answer.
Ning Li’s lips moved.
“I… don’t know…”
Lu Huaiyu raised an eyebrow. “Hmm?”
Ning Li paused for a long time before she finally said softly, “I didn’t drink it.”
Lu Huaiyu was stunned.
Ning Li raised her eyes and looked at Lu Huaiyu. Her gaze was shy but straightforward.
“I didn’t drink that bottle of wine. I poured out all the half-empty ones.”
The room was silent.
After a long time, Lu Huaiyu smiled.
He came to Ning Li and looked at her from the same level. He chuckled softly.
“So, you have been plotting against your brother for a long time..”
