Lu Huaiyu pinched her face and asked with a low smile, “Where are you going to sleep tonight?”
Ning Li blushed and got up from his arms.
She had only come here to kiss him and had no intention of taking over his bed.
She sat on her knees. Her soft long hair was hanging down a little messily, and the corners of her eyes were red. She looked very docile and slightly coquettish, as if she was easily bullied.
She said, “Go back to sleep.”
Lu Huaiyu propped himself up and leaned against the headboard of the bed, with a half-smile on his face.
“You come over when you want to eat candy, and then run away after you eat it? Could such a good thing truly happen?”
ing Li thought for a moment, before leaning over to kiss him on the cheek.
Lu Huaiyu looked at her with slightly raised eyebrows.
ing Li moved to the other side and kissed him.
“Is that alright?” She asked.
Lu Huaiyu stared into her eyes for a long time before he suddenly burst out into laughter.
ationality and restraint had collapsed for her countless times, but they had also been rebuilt for her countless times.
(0 matter how much she had to go through, no matter how much she tossed and turned, she could not fall asleep.
n the end, she could not bear to.
He took her hand and kissed it.
“What a good plan. I’ll owe you this time.”
There will be plenty of time for you to pay it back.
There were no classes schedule for the next morning, so Ning Li stayed on at Rongyue Mansion.
After breakfast, she sat on the sofa with her computer and continued to summarize the contents of the seminar.
Lu Huaiyu walked behind her and glanced at the screen.
“Was this task assigned by Teacher Shen?”
“Yes, Teacher Shen needs it before the group meeting on Wednesday. Senior Brother Yan Qiu is afraid that he won’t make it in time, so he asked me to help.”
Ning Li’s fingers quickly tapped on the keyboard as she casually answered.
Lu Huaiyu raised his eyebrows.
Yan Qiu was currently Shen Zhijin’s doctorate student as well as his assistant. Such matters were usually left to him.
Logically speaking, with Yan Qiu’s personality and ability, he would not ask for help.
Moreover, it was such an important seminar.
Since he had done so, he must have sought out Shen Zhijin’s opinion.
“It seems that Teacher Shen greatly values you,” Lu Huaiyu said with a smile. “His standards are very high. He really treats you as his own student.”
ing Li nodded.
Following Shen Zhijin to do research was an opportunity that many people were unable to get even if they wanted to.
This thought had crossed her mind.
Lu Huaiyu saw that she was focused and serious, so he did not want to continue to disturb her.
“I’m going out for a while. I’ll be back in a while.”
ing Li did not even raise her head as she replied, “Okay.”
She was really busy.
Lu Huaiyu’s lips curled up slightly. Then he bent down, pinched her chin, and kissed her lips for a long time before he went out.
An hour later, Lu Huaiyu returned with a lot of things in his hands.
He placed the big bag on the dining table before bringing the small bag over.
ing Li turned her head to look.
Lu Huaiyu said, “It’s coconut milk crisp candy. I’ve packed it in this bag. Let’s eat lunch first.”
As he spoke, he opened her backpack and placed the bag of candy inside.
ing Li closed her computer and walked over to have lunch with him.
ing Li had classes to attend in the afternoon, so after she finished eating, she planned to take a taxi back.
“There’s no need. Let Cheng Xiyue send you there.”
As Lu Huaiyu spoke, he looked at his watch,
“He should be arriving soon.”
Just as he finished speaking, his phone vibrated.
As expected, it was a message from Cheng Xiyue.
Ning Li asked curiously, “Does Second Brother have an appointment with Brother Xiyue this afternoon?”
Lu Huaiyu nodded.
“We’re going to discuss a project.”
Ning Li did not ask much. She returned to her room and stared at herself in the mirror for quite a while before changing into a thin, high-necked sweater.
Lu Huaiyu helped her carry her bag as the two of them went downstairs together.
Getting into the car, Ning Li saw a fruit basket placed on the front passenger seat.
She asked curiously, “Who is Brother Xiyue going to visit? If it’s not convenient, I can take a taxi back to school by myself.”
Cheng Xiyue let out a long sigh.
“It’s fine. I’ve already gone.”
He glanced at the passenger seat,
“This thing didn’t get sent out.”
ing Li, “…”
Having followed Ning Li into the car, Lu Huaiyu chuckled lightly when he heard that.
“I told you long ago that there’s no need to join in on the fun. Elder Mei has always been most annoyed by these kinds of things. I told you it would be a thankless experience, yet you didn’t listen.”
ing Li’s brows twitched slightly.
Cheng Xiyue smoothed out his hair.
“How could I have known that the old man’s temper would now be even greater than before?! You don’t even know, I was carrying a fruit basket and had only just stepped into the ward with one foot when Elder Mei
raised his head and saw me. He immediately shouted at me to get out.”
Lu Huaiyu understood.
“Oh, so you didn’t even enter the door?”
Cheng Xiyue, “… Can you not expect more from me? Teacher Yu came over later and asked me to place the fruit basket outside so I went in again.”
However, very quickly, he was shouted at to go out again.
After a whole morning of back and forth, he had gone the same way he had come back.
Lu Huaiyu said, “Elder Mei has stomach cancer. He just had surgery two days ago. You bringing these over at this time, it’s not wrong to be scolded.”
Cheng Xiyue sighed.
“How could I not understand this logic? Just a thought… you don’t even know the way Elder Mei looked at the fruit basket at that time. Tsk.”
He shook his head with lingering fear in his heart.
The Cheng family’s old patriarch had a friendship with Elder Mei and knew that Elder Mei was impatient with these things. During this period of time, other than making two phone calls, he had not cared much.
This time, he had taken the opportunity to go to the Capital on a business trip and had come to visit.
Of course, the outcome was as expected. In fact, it was even worse than expected.
Lu Huaiyu comforted him.
“Anyway, you’re not the first person to be chased out, so don’t take it to heart.”
Cheng Xiyue, “… You’re right.”
He shrugged his shoulders.
“I heard that when Elder Mei’s disciples had gone over, even they had been told off. Even Elder Yu wasn’t spared. He was Elder Mei’s youngest disciple. In the past, Elder Mei doted on him a lot, but in the end, even he is
treated like this. What more can people like us say?”
Ning Li lowered her head to look at her phone.
Lu Huaiyu turned his head to look at her and suddenly asked, “Ah Li, didn’t you go to visit Elder Mei?”.
