Gu Tinglan snapped back to his senses and clicked off the photo.
“It’s a little different from the previous investigation. We’ll have to re-check.”
Gu Siyang nodded. He knew that this was not an easy matter.
“Uncle, don’t be too anxious. After all, it was many years ago. If we really want to investigate everything thoroughly, it will take more effort.”
Gu Tinglan closed the computer and pinched the bridge of his nose.
However, even if he knew that, whether he could do it or not was another matter.
“You go back, I’ll be quiet now.”
Gu Siyang quickly agreed and got up to leave.
Gu Tinglan was the only one left in the room.
He slowly opened his eyes and looked out of the window.
In the evening, after having dinner in the hotel restaurant, Ning Li returned to her room.
She had already discussed with Gu Tinglan beforehand that they would be done in two days. Thus, she had packed light and had not brought too many things.
She went to take a shower and changed into her pajamas.
Just then, the doorbell rang.
She was drying her hair with a towel as she went to open the door.
Lu Huaiyu was about to open his mouth when he saw her, freezing instantly.
She was wearing a loose blue and white cotton nightgown that was just above her knees.
Perhaps it was because she had just taken a shower, but her porcelain-white face was flushed and her hair was still wet. As she opened the door and spoke, a drop of water fell unsteadily onto her shoulder, leaving a small dark stain.
Seeing that he wasn’t moving, Ning Li asked again, “Second Brother, is there something you need me for?”
Lu Huaiyu frowned slightly.
“Why did you come out without drying your hair?”
As he spoke, he pushed her back into the room.
Ning Li shook her head and said, “I don’t really like to use a hairdryer.”
Lu Huaiyu took the towel from her hand.
“I’ll help you dry your hair.”
Ning Li obediently sat down on the sofa.
Drying her hair with a towel was a tedious job, and she had to do it for a long time every time.
Her nightdress was at a knee-length, but when she sat down, the hem of her dress automatically drew upwards, revealing a small section of her unbelievably slender and fair thigh.
It was so white that it dazzled the eyes.
Lu Huaiyu only took a glance before he quietly averted his gaze. Then, he sat down beside her and gently helped her wipe her hair bit by bit.
He paused for a moment.
“I’m here to ask you if you’d like to go home tomorrow.”
What he was referring to was Ning Li’s home in Lincheng.
It had been a long time since she had gone home.
Now that the college entrance exam was over and everything was settled, he thought to ask her this.
Ning Li was about to speak when her phone suddenly rang.
She turned around to answer the call.
Lu Huaiyu glanced at the remarks on the screen.
Ning Li had already clicked to connect the call.
Lu Huaiyu raised his eyebrows slightly.
He had heard that name before.
The boy’s clear voice came from the receiver.
Ning Li looked at the time.
“Aren’t you busy today?”
Lin Fengmian said, “Fortunately, my work here is almost finished. I should be able to return to Lincheng soon.”
He paused and lowered his voice.
“Sister, I want to go back and visit Grandma. Could you accompany me?”
Ning Li’s eyelids drooped slightly.
When Grandma had passed away, she had not informed Lin Fengmian.
Even after he had returned to the country, he had never had the chance to come back.
This was also torture for Lin Fengmian.
Her voice slowed down.
Lin Fengmian asked, “Can it be next Saturday? The company gave me a three-day holiday.”
Ning Li was stunned.
“Three days? That long?”
It was not that she really thought that three days off was a long time. However, compared to the current Lin Fengmian, it was indeed very rare.
Now that he was popular and had just released his new album, logically speaking, this was the time to be busy.
Having three days off was really very extravagant.
Lin Fengmian pursed his lips and smiled.
“Yeah, the new album has been selling well. Now that I’ve almost finished recording a few more programs, the company gave me three days of vacation as a reward.”
This was a vacation that he had worked hard to get for several days in a row.
In the middle of it, he had not even touched the bed for five days in a row, only catching up on some sleep on the plane and in the car.
But of course, he would not tell her this.
Ning Li paused for a moment.
In fact, she could probably guess that this so-called reward had been earned by him.
However, he had always been like this since he was young. He would only report the good news but would never complain in front of her.
She sighed softly in her heart.
Lin Fengmian smiled.
“See you then, Sister.”
Ning Li hung up the phone.
Lu Huaiyu was still helping her dry her hair and had no intention of asking any questions.
Ning Li turned her head to look at him.
“Second Brother, I won’t be going home this time.”
Lu Huaiyu raised his eyebrows slightly. He had already guessed her decision.
Ning Li thought for a moment and said frankly, “I’ll come back next Saturday.”
Lu Huaiyu nodded.
“You’ll be with a friend?”
Ning Li nodded.
She thought of something and said, “By then, the admission letter for Xijing University should have arrived.”
Lu Huaiyu kissed her on the forehead and asked in a low voice, “Do you want me to accompany you?”
Ning Li shook her head.
After pausing for a while, she said softly, “I want to show the admission letter to Grandma, and…
“And my dad.”
Her voice was very soft.
Lu Huaiyu paused.
This was the first time that Ning Li had taken the initiative to mention Ning Haizhou in front of him.
After the incident, Ning Haizhou had been sent to Lincheng First Prison to serve his sentence.
Of course, Ning Li’s mention of this meant that she wanted to visit him in prison.
Lu Huaiyu looked at her.
She lowered her head slightly, her expression was very calm, but her thick and curly eyelashes trembled slightly.
Lu Huaiyu picked her up by the waist and held her in his arms.
Ning Li did not notice and subconsciously hugged his neck.
Lu Huaiyu leaned over with a smile on his lips. His voice was gentle and deep.
“Family members should go together, right?”
