The entire second floor fell into silence.
Everyone looked at this scene in shock, almost thinking that their eyes were playing tricks on them.
However, the two of them seemed to be completely oblivious to the reactions of the people around them.
Lu Huaiyu held her slender ankle with one hand and one of her high heels with the other. His movements were extremely gentle as he took it off.
Then, he saw that the skin on the back of her heel had indeed been rubbed raw and was turning red.
He frowned slightly.
“Why didn’t you say anything before?”
Without looking, he could tell that the other side must be injured as well.
Ning Li looked down at him, but did not say anything.
Lu Huaiyu stood up.
Her bare foot was hanging in the air, and she could not stand steadily.
Lu Huaiyu held her slender and soft waist as he looked down at her, his voice slightly cold.
At the thought that her feet had been hurt, yet she had continued to be on her feet for so long without saying anything until now, he felt both distressed and angry.
His voice carried a hint of questioning.
Ning Li felt even more aggrieved by his words, and her peach blossom eyes looked at him.
Seeing the look in her eyes, all the anger in Lu Huaiyu’s heart dissipated in an instant.
He really could not be angry with her.
He lifted her up by her waist, placed her on a high stool next to him, and bent over again.
This time, he helped her take off the high heel from her other foot.
The man’s side profile was sharp and cold, but his movements were extremely gentle.
‘When the warm palm touched her, she felt a tingle and subconsciously struggled.
Applying some force with his hand, Lu Huaiyu brushed his slightly calloused fingertips across her smooth and unbelievably soft skin.
His movements paused.
However, this pause was only for a moment. Soon, he took off her shoe as well.
‘As Ning Li sat on a high stool, the arch of her foot was extremely beautiful, and her pale feet seemed to glow.
Lu Huaiyu’s gaze swept over her.
Then, he moved forward, as if to hug her.
Ning Li moved backward.
Lu Huaiyu narrowed his eyes dangerously.
Ning Li complained righteously, “You still won’t let me smell it.”
Lu Huaiyu was momentarily stunned before he burst out into laughter.
He had seen it all today.
He had not even settled the score with her, yet she was already acting as if she had been wronged.
However, now that she was behaving like this, what else could he do?
“Tl let you smell it.”
Lu Huaiyu compromised and coaxed her nicely.
“Iwas wrong. When we get home, you can smell it as much as you want, okay?”
Their surroundings were so quiet that even a pin drop could be heard.
In just a few short minutes, the shock that they had just experienced was too great!
Surely, Ning was drunk. Not only was she acting crazy in front of Second Master Lu, but more importantly, he was also indulging her!
Also, going home?
What did this mean?!
Ning Li was only satisfied after seeing that he had admitted his mistake with such a good attitude.
Her small head nodded and her voice was soft as she spoke.
Only after the little ancestor had given her permission did Lu Huaiyu finally move forward to carry her.
Ning Li obediently wrapped her arms around his neck and buried her small face in the crook of his neck.
Her soft hair tickled him a little.
However, in the next moment, his entire body froze.
Ning Li was snuggled in the crook of his neck. Her soft lips pressed against his skin as she lightly inhaled.
She was actually… sniffing him.
Lu Huaiyu’s throat went dry, and his entire body felt restless.
In the eyes of the people around him, Ning Li was merely nestling in his arms obediently.
Only he knew what kind of intimacy and heat was hidden in this intimate secrecy.
Smelling the familiar smell of cedar, Ning Li finally felt at ease. She rubbed herself against Lu Huaiyu to settle in a more comfortable position.
Lu Huaiyu gritted his teeth, almost going crazy from her torture.
He tightened his arms and held her even tighter.
As he spoke, he moved to head downstairs with her in his arms.
George was by his side. He had watched as Lu Huaiyu had gone from being condescending to admitting his mistake before carefully serving her. It was simply amazing.
If it had not been for the fact that there were so many people watching, he would have applauded Ning Li.
It was really a case of one thing conquering another!
At first, he had thought that Ning Li would not be able to escape punishment for keeping such a big secret from Lu Huaiyu.
In the end, with just one sentence, the situation had easily been turned around.
In less than five minutes, Lu Huaiyu had raised the flag and surrendered, admitting defeat willingly.
He winked at Ning Li, full of admiration.
Unfortunately, Ning Li’s attention was not on him at all. Even if she had seen him, she would have pretended not to see him.
Seeing that the two were about to leave, someone finally came back to his senses and shouted out anxiously, “Second Master Lu! Ning’s shoes–”
Lu Huaiyu did not even turn to look back.
“We don’t want them anymore.”
‘That person was stunned for a moment.
“But, without shoes, won’t it be inconvenient for Ning to walk…”
Lu Huaiyu stopped in his tracks and turned his body slightly.
As he did so, the cuffs of Ning Li’s shirt sleeves that were around his neck slipped down.
On her slender and fair wrist, a watch that was as bright as thousands of stars was revealed.
Lu Huaiyu’s thin lips curled into an extremely faint arc.
“It’s not convenient for her to walk, so I’ll just carry her.
“After all, your own girlfriend is someone you should pamper more.”
After saying that, he carried Ning Li downstairs, leaving everyone dumbfounded and unable to recover from their shock for a long time.
It was not until the two figures had gradually disappeared into the distance that someone realized and asked in disbelief, “Just now… What did Second Master Lu say?!”
Someone suddenly added, “The watch that Ning was wearing just now seemed to be… the Night of the Milky Way.”
It was rumored that Second Master Lu had bid an astronomical price of 170 million for the Night of the Milky Way in Hong Kong some time ago and had gifted it to his girlfriend.
This matter had spread like wildfire within the social circles of the Capital.
Many people had tried to dig up information about his girlfriend, but they had been unable to find out much, and even fewer had seen her.
Most of the people present today were not from the social circles of the Capital, so not many knew about this matter.
It was only now that everyone had finally connected this rumor to Ning Li’s face.
However, why had Lu Huaiyu and Ning Li always acted as if they were not familiar with each other? He had even asked George to introduce–
“George, is Ning really…” someone asked carefully.
“Tunderstand the feelings of a young couple.”
Lu Huaiyu carried Ning Li in his arms as he walked out the door.
Yi Bin was already waiting outside the door with his car.
Seeing Lu Huaiyu and Ning Li come out with their arms around each other, Yi Bin was momentarily stunned and immediately opened the back door.
Lu Huaiyu placed Ning Li in the car and entered after her.
He tugged at his tie.
“Head back to Rongyue Mansion.”
