Ning Li looked at him.
Lu Huaiyu had always been a meticulous person. How could he be so careless as to drop something?
She walked over and hugged his lean waist.
The warmth from his body was like the temperature of a freshly ironed shirt.
He wrapped one arm around her shoulder while he held her hand with the other.
It was clearly midsummer, but her hand was exceptionally cold.
He warmed it for a while before he smiled and said, “Let’s go.”
By the time the group had returned, it was already evening.
Ning Li thought of something.
“Mian, where are you sleeping tonight?”
Lin Fengmian was stunned.
“I’ll just go home, Sister.”
Ning Li frowned slightly.
His family’s house had not been occupied for a few years, so it would be really inconvenient to go there now.
Moreover, it was not convenient for him to use his identity card to stay in a hotel now.
As if he had seen through her thoughts, Lin Fengmian’s eyes curved.
“Actually, I can stay anywhere.”
He was not that picky.
During the two years he had been a trainee abroad, he had stayed in the dormitory provided by the company.
In the first year, he had always stayed in the basement.
Later, seeing that his performance in all aspects was not bad, the company had upgraded his treatment and moved him from the basement to the first floor.
No matter how humid and crowded, or how dilapidated the environment had been, he had still been able to sleep.
Thus, sleeping in his own home would not be a problem.
Cheng Xiyue glanced at them a few times and smiled as he said, “Then, what’s the trouble? Why don’t we all go to Xishe? The security there is also a little stronger.”
Xishe Hotel belonged to the Cheng family, so it was naturally much more convenient.
Ning Li thought for a while and felt that this suggestion was indeed the most appropriate, so she said, “Then, let’s listen to Brother Xiyue. Ah Mian, what do you think?”
Lin Fengmian nodded and obediently agreed.
“We’ll listen to Sister then.”
He was always unconditionally obedient and sensible with Ning Li.
The matter was settled just like that.
Lin Fengmian lowered his head to look at his phone for a while, before closing his eyes to rest.
When they arrived at the hotel, Cheng Xiyue drove the car directly to the underground garage while the rest of them took the elevator up.
On the way here, he had already instructed the hotel staff here to reserve four rooms on the top floor.
Looking at the gradually rising number, Ning Li suddenly thought of something.
“I heard that Dr. Gu left Lincheng two days ago?”
Cheng Xiyue responded.
“The horse race event is about to begin. He will probably return to Hong Kong City soon, right?”
Gu Tinglan was not interested in the Gu family’s business and he would usually travel all year round. However, the horse race event was considered a grand event at the Gu family’s home stadium, so he would still go back to attend it.
Ning Li nodded.
The elevator door opened.
Lin Fengmian looked at his room card, which was in a different direction from Ning Li’s room.
Lin Fengmian suddenly opened his mouth to say, “I want to eat your noodles.”
As soon as he said this, a brief silence fell in the corridor.
Lu Huaiyu raised his eyebrows and looked at Lin Fengmian.
Lin Fengmian seemed to have not seen it and just stood quietly behind Ning Li.
He paused for a moment and then lowered his voice.
“I haven’t eaten today.”
His eyebrows and eyes were exquisite, especially his eyes. His light brown pupils were clear and clean. When he lowered his eyes slightly, he looked a little fragile.
He had such a delicate and quiet appearance, which easily triggered people’s desire to protect him.
After a moment, Ning Li nodded.
All the rooms on the top floor were suites, and each one had its own small kitchen. Cooking noodles was a relatively simple matter.
“Sister Ning Li personally wants to cook?”
Cheng Xi Yue had originally been about to leave, but when he heard this, he had come over again.
“Sister Ning Li, can I join in?”
Lu Huaiyu gave him a blank stare.
Cheng Xiyue pretended not to see.
What kind of joke was this?
Previously, Sister Ning Li had cooked corn and pork rib soup and given it all to Lu Huaiyu to eat.
This time, he had only asked for a bowl of noodles. What was wrong with that?!
Ning Li did not hesitate much and agreed.
She looked at Lu Huaiyu.
“What about Second Brother?”
Lu Huaiyu smiled. “I’m not hungry. What does Ah Li want to eat? I’ll cook it for you.”
Lin Fengmian’s brows furrowed slightly.
Cheng Xiyue was instantly in awe of Lu Huaiyu.
When had this man’s status become so high?!
Ning Li shook her head.
“Since it’s all boiled noodles anyway, let us all eat this too.”
Lu Huaiyu said, “Hmm”.
All of them entered Ning Li’s room just like that.
Half an hour later, the four of them sat on both sides of the dining table.
In front of Lin Fengmian and Cheng Xiyue were Ning Li’s boiled noodles.
In front of Ning Li and Lu Huaiyu were Lu Huaiyu’s boiled noodles.
Originally, Ning Li had planned to cook for all four of them together because she had thought it would too troublesome to cook it separately. However, Lu Huaiyu had said that the small pot in the hotel would not be big enough, so they would have to split the cooking duties.
Lin Fengmian swept a glance before silently starting to eat.
Cheng Xiyue took the first bite and gave a thumbs up.
“Sister Ning Li, your cooking skills are really good!”
If a simple bowl of noodles could be cooked so deliciously, then the rest…
Thinking of that corn and pork rib soup, Young Master Cheng’s heart instantly became even more resentful.
Lu Huaiyu handed a pair of chopsticks to Ning Li and placed a small spoon next to her bowl of noodles.
“It’s still a little hot.”
Ning Li had lived in Yunding Fenghua for quite a while and was already used to Lu Huaiyu doing this. However, she was unaware of how intimate it looked to others.
All she thought was that Lu Huaiyu was behaving like a gentleman. However, she did not know that this master did not have such patience towards anyone else to be able to serve them to such an extent.
Cheng Xiyue felt very moved as he watched from the other side.
Ning Li looked at Lin Fengmian and asked, “Ah Mian, have you made any plans for tomorrow?”
Lin Fengmian actually still had a few relatives in Lincheng, but after his father passed away, he had not had much contact with those people.
Then when he had gone abroad later, he had cut off contact with almost everyone.
Ning Li had planned to visit the prison tomorrow, but it would not be suitable for Lin Fengmian to go there.
Lin Fengmian naturally understood, so she said, “I have no plans. Sister, go do what you need to do first. I’ll just wait here.”
Ning Li thought that since it was rare for him to take a vacation, it might be good for him to get a good rest.
So, she said, “Okay.”
After finishing the meal, Lin Fengmian consciously got up.
“I’ll go and wash the dishes.”
As he said that, he moved to collect Ning Li’s bowl and chopsticks.
Lu Huaiyu leaned against the chair and glanced indifferently at Cheng Xiyue.
Cheng Xiyue understood and immediately said, “Let me do it, let me do it!”
As he spoke, he quickly rushed in front of Lin Fengmian to collect Lu Huaiyu and Ning Li’s bowls and chopsticks.
What a sucker!
Young Master Cheng lamented.
How had he ended up helping others wash their own dishes in his own hotel?
Ning Li asked Lin Fengmian some more questions, some about his life as a trainee abroad, and some about his current work arrangements.
Lin Fengmian answered all of them, but he did not mention the hard parts, only the good ones.
Ning Li knew his personality so she did not probe further.
Lin Fengmian was not someone who liked to take out his pain and suffering for others to see, or to gain sympathy and pity.
Time slowly passed.
Lu Huaiyu glanced at his watch.
“Ah Li, you should sleep early today.”
Cheng Xiyue had already left a long time ago.
Lu Huaiyu stood up, preparing to leave.
Lin Fengmian also stood up.
“Then, I’ll take my leave too. Sister, rest well.”
Ning Li nodded.
The two of them went out one after another.
The door closed.
Lin Fengmian looked at Lu Huaiyu’s back and his voice turned cold.
