“Lu Huaiyu’s girlfriend is Ning Li?”
Kony was stunned as he watched the two leave hand in hand.
Moreover, he had never seen such a gentle and loving expression on Lu Huaiyu’s face before.
He could not help but look at Jiang Ran.
He was a man, so he knew very well what the look in Lu Huaiyu’s eyes meant as he looked at Ning Li.
If even Jiang Ran had not been successful, it was likely no one else would have a chance either…
Jiang Ran did not say anything. Finally, she looked over there, pursed her lips, and turned to leave.
Ning Li had just gotten into the car when she heard a voice that was carrying a smile come from the driver’s seat at the front.
“Sister Ning Li.”
Ning Li raised her eyes and looked over.
She had previously told Yan Qiu that she had something to do, and it had indeed been true. Cheng Xiyue had come to the Capital on a business trip.
He arrived in the afternoon and said that he wanted to have a meal with her and Lu Huaiyu, no matter what.
Ning Li had felt that it would not be a problem, so she immediately agreed.
Only later had she found out that Cheng Xiyue had not talked to Lu Huaiyu about having dinner together at all earlier.
He had only “informed” Lu Huaiyu after obtaining a definite answer from Ning Li.
Cheng Xiyue turned his head to look at her and asked with a beaming smile, “We haven’t seen each other for a long time. Did younger sister Ning Li miss me?”
Just as the words fell, Cheng Xiyue felt a chilly gaze fall upon him.
Lu Huaiyu followed Ning Li into the car and sat beside her, a smile on his face that was not quite a smile.
“Not to mention Ah Li, | miss Young Master Cheng a lot.”
Cheng Xiyue felt a chill run up his spine.
His powerful desire to live forced him to immediately cough and quit while he was ahead.
“Cough, I’ve been doing quite well recently. I won’t trouble Second Master Lu to think about it.”
Lu Huaiyu snickered.
A nice dinner for two people suddenly had the addition of an unknown object. Who could be happy with that?
It would surely be strange if he were to look at Cheng Xiyue with a happy face.
He said lazily, “Alright, just drive.”
Cheng Xiyue, “??2”
He knew that he had come to the Capital yet he was still treated like an errand boy!
However, he knew that he was in the wrong, so he could only do as he was told. He started the car and slowly drove away.
Lu Huaiyu looked at Ning Li.
“Have you been very tired these two days?”
Ning Li shook her head. “Not bad, I gained quite a lot of knowledge.”
It had been a few days since Lu Huaiyu had seen her, so he could not help but caress her hair as said with a deep chuckle, “Just now, Senior Brother Yan Qiu said
that I should let you rest well.”
Ning Li was silent for a moment before saying, “Second Brother, actually, you don’t have to address Senior Brother Yan Qiu like this…
After all, Lu Huaiyu was not considered as Shen Zhijin’s student, so calling Yan Qiu like this was really too polite.
Lu Huaiyu raised his eyebrows.
“Naturally, your Senior Brother is my Senior Brother.”
When Cheng Xiyue heard this, he could not help but interject.
“Hey, hey? Sister Ning Li calls me Senior Brother Xiyue. Lu Er, then you–”
Lu Huaiyu raised his eyelids slightly and gave a faint smile.
“…Never mind, forget I said it!”
Half an hour later, the three of them arrived at a hotpot restaurant on the top floor of the HG building in the center of the Capital.
The boss personally led the three of them to the private room inside.
Ning Li ordered a four-palace grid and she left the ordering of the dishes to Cheng Xiyue.
It was rare for Lu Huaiyu to treat him to a meal, so Cheng Xiyue ordered a large without the slightest bit of shame.
The waiter quickly served the soup bases.
Curls of smoke rose from the soup. Lu Huaiyu glanced sideways at Ning Li, only to see that her small face was also slightly flushed from the heat.
Her eyes were crystal bright and sparkling.
His heart moved slightly, and he asked in a low voice, “Ah Li, would you like to have a drink?”
Ning Li’s ears heated up slightly. “… 1 don’t want to drink.”
What this man was thinking was as clear as day.
Lu Huaiyu lightly let out an “ah”, regret showing on his face as he answered with a smile.
“Alright, fruit juice it is then.”
As Cheng Xiyue sat opposite them, his gaze swept over the two of them. He silently sighed and picked his phone up.
Lu Huaiyu’s phone lit up.
He took a look and saw that it was a message from Cheng Xiyue.
[ Lu Er, just be yourself please. ]
Lu Huaiyu swiped the message away with a calm expression.
Cheng Xiyue, “!!!”
He put his phone down and resolved to turn his grief and anger into strength. Then, he began to give his full energy to his food.
The meal lasted for a full hour.
Lu Huaiyu glanced at his watch and said, “I’m going to the restroom. Wait here for me to come back first.”
Ning Li nodded.
After Lu Huaiyu finished speaking, he got up and left.
Cheng Xiyue was in charge of finishing up and suddenly said, “Sister Ning Li, your sleeve is dirty.”
Ning Li raised her arm, only realizing then that there was a nail-sized oil stain on her sleeve.
“I’ll just go and wash it.”
Saying that, she got up as well and left the room to walk in the direction of the restroom.
However, just as she had taken a few steps, she heard a trembling female voice.
“Lu Huaiyu, don’t you know that I like you so much?”
Ning Li stopped in her tracks.
She was standing at the corner of the shop, so her figure was hidden and no one noticed her.
The voice belonged to Jiang Ran.
Lu Huaiyu did not speak.
Jiang Ran was already sobbing.
“From Capital First High School, to Xijing University, to Fino Laboratory… For so many years, wherever you went, I worked hard to follow you… No matter how
much effort it took, no matter how hard it had been… I have fantasized countless times, wondering when you would turn around to look at me? You’re so smart, Lu
Huaiyu. Being so smart, how could you not know that I had feelings for you? How could you not feel it at all?!”
A moment later, Lu Huaiyu’s calm and unhurried voice was heard.
“Are you done? Even if you’re not done, there’s no need to say anything more. There are still ten minutes left until the closing time of the dessert shop on the third
floor. You’ve already delayed me by three minutes. If you delay me any further, I won’t have time to buy the coconut milk crisp candy for Ah Li.”
Jiang Ran’s sobs stopped abruptly.
She stared blankly at the man opposite her, with tears silently flowing down her face.
Countless images flashed through her mind.
This was the face she had hidden in her heart. She could not be more familiar with it, but at this moment, it was so unfamiliar.
So, what exactly was the worth of the love that she had held on to for so many years?
Was her love worth even less than that piece of coconut milk crisp candy?!
Her heart was filled with jealousy and unwillingness, and it exploded in an instant.
“Lu Huaiyu! I have liked you for so many years, and I have done so much for you. What about her? She enjoys everything you’ve given her with a clear conscience!
Your fame, your status, your care, your love! But what has she given you? Will you come to your senses?! She–”
“She doesn’t need to do anything.”
Lu Huaiyu interrupted her.
He seemed to laugh.
“Do you know how long I waited for her to give me this opportunity?”.
