The Little Brat’s Sweet And Sassy

Chapter 691 - Candy for Him

Chapter 691 Candy for Him

Shen Li, “…”

She quickly glanced at Shen Zhijin and noticed that his eyes had darkened.

Fortunately, there were quite a lot of people around them, so they did not say anything about Lu Huaiyu’s uninvited move.

Zhang Yao was very happy.

“Hey, Huaiyu, you can try all the things I told you just now! They taste amazing!”

Lu Huaiyou nodded with a smile.

“Okay.”

As he spoke, his gaze fell on Shen Li. He lowered his head slightly and asked softly, “Ah Li, which one do you want to eat?”

Shen Li instantly felt that many people around her were looking over at them.

Lu Huaiyu had previously publicly declared his feelings for her during the school’s anniversary. After that, he had always accompanied Shen Li to class. All the teachers and students at Xijing University were clear about their relationship.

Today, he had even accompanied Shen Zhijin and Shen Li to the staff canteen for a meal…

Didn’t that prove that he had already been acknowledged by Shen Zhijin?

On one hand, Shen Zhijin had a proud and aloof temperament, and his standards were extremely high. On the other hand, Lu Huaiyu was also impeccable in all aspects.

Only he could have been able to so smoothly be regarded well by Shen Zhijin, right?

Zhang Yao watched from the side with a loving expression. He smiled and said to Shen Zhijin, “Zhijin, Huaiyu used to be such a difficult boy to tame. I didn’t expect him to be so considerate when it comes to dating!”

The teachers of Xijing University had not been able to do anything to him. Even in the entire Capital, the Second Master of the Lu family was famous for his undisciplined temperament and arrogance.

When he said this, he had not lowered his voice, so everyone around him heard him.

When they heard him, they all laughed and echoed him.

“That’s right. I heard that this semester, Huaiyu has been accompanying Professor Fang in Advanced Mathematics, and he even handed in his homework.”

“This is the time just after the class again today, right?”

Regardless of whether it was Lu Huaiyu or Shen Li, both of them were extremely outstanding, and the teachers also appreciated them.

Not to mention, Shen Li was actually Shen Zhijin’s biological daughter.

Now that they saw her and Lu Huaiyu together, everyone was happy to see them together.

Moreover, Shen Zhijin had brought them here. Didn’t that mean that his attitude was agreeable?

Thus, everyone was happy and chatting happily. No one paid any attention to Shen Zhijin’s expression.

“Hey, I was sitting next to him on the day of the school anniversary. When Ah Li gave the speech as the student representative, I had specially explained to him that this was the student representative of this year and that she was exceptionally outstanding. Only later did I find that the two of them were already in a relationship! This kid deliberately didn’t say anything at that time. He was just waiting for people to praise Ah Li!”

A teacher said with a sigh.

Hearing this, Shen Zhijin finally turned around and quietly glanced at Lu Huaiyu.

Lu Huaiyu immediately sensed that something was wrong. They met Shen Zhijin’s gaze and immediately said with a smile.

“Ah Li’s speech that day was really good.”

Then, he quietly changed the topic.

“Ah Li, do you want to eat braised pork ribs? Teacher Shen, what about you?”

Shen Li handed over her meal card and blinked her peach blossom eyes.

“My dad and I like it very much. Please make it two servings. Thank you, Second Brother.”

Lu Huaiyu’s smile deepened. “Sure.”

Everyone took their seats one after another, finally getting past this issue.

Shen Li sat next to Shen Zhijin while Lu Huaiyu sat opposite her, and Professor Yang from the Institute sat opposite Shen Zhijin.

Professor Yang had already read Shen Li’s opening report.

He had done some research on related subjects before, so he chatted with Shen Li quite a bit.

Shen Li was greatly inspired.

Lu Huaiyu sat there, listening as he placed the prawns that he had peeled into her bowl.

He was an extremely beautiful man. As he did this kind of action, his every move carried a noble air in his bones, and it was natural and smooth. It was clear that he was already used to it.

Shen Li said, “Thank you, Second Brother.”

Shen Zhijin looked over and helped her pick out the onions and ginger. Then, he handed her a piece of tissue paper.

Shen Li said again, “Thank you, Dad.”

Professor Yang looked at this scene and vaguely felt that he was a little redundant.

To be honest, the atmosphere at the dining table was not quite the same as what he had thought at the beginning…

Suddenly, Lu Huaiyu’s phone vibrated.

He took off his disposable gloves and took the phone out to have a look. He raised his eyebrows slightly, crossed out the message, and put down his phone.

Shen Li glanced at him but did not pay much attention to it.

Soon, another message came.

He glanced at it and crossed it out again.

Then, another message came.

Shen Li finally could not help but ask, “Second Brother, who is it?”

Lu Huaiyu lifted his eyelids slightly. His gaze lingered on Shen Zhijin for a moment before he smiled and said, “The second master of the Gu family.”

“Second Uncle?”

Only then did Shen Li remember that Shen Zhijin was still sitting next to her when she had said this out loud.

She paused for a moment.

“Is Second Uncle looking for you for an urgent matter?”

She remembered that Lu Huaiyu and Gu Tingchuan had never had much contact with each other previously. Why did they seem to be so closely connected now?

Oh, she could not really say that either.

It was Gu Tingchuan who was looking for Lu Huaiyu. Apparently, Lu Huaiyu had not replied yet. What… was going on?

Lu Huaiyu smiled.

“It’s not an urgent matter. The second master of the Gu family is looking for me to discuss a project. However, it’s not convenient for me to reply now. I plan to call him directly later.”

Shen Li nodded in understanding.

It made sense. To be able to connect the two of them, it should be a pretty big project. It was indeed not very appropriate to send a message during dinner.

She did not ask any more questions and started chatting with Professor Yang again.

Lu Huaiyu lowered his eyes to look at their phones, raising their eyebrows slightly.

After the meal was finally over, Shen Li had to return to the Institute’s Laboratory to prepare for tomorrow’s experiment.

Shen Zhijin and Professor Yang walked together.

After leaving the cafeteria, Shen Li said goodbye to Lu Huaiyu.

“Second Brother, you can go back first. I’ll be going to the laboratory.”

Lu Huaiyu smiled.

“I can stay awhile longer.”

He had accompanied her to the institute before, so there was no reason for him not to send her off now.

Hearing what he said, Shen Li let him accompany her.

The small group of people walked towards the institute together. Professor Yang and Shen Zhijin were in the front, talking as they walked. Shen Li and Lu Huaiyu followed behind them.

At this time, the campus was very lively. They met many students on the way. Seeing this scene, they cast a lot of gossipy and excited gazes.

When they returned to the downstairs area of the institute, Professor Yang smiled and said, “The weather is cold. The time for the school street lamps to light up has been brought forward.”

The moment he said this, the surroundings went quiet.

Shen Zhijin stared at a street lamp downstairs and responded with an emotionless “Mmm.”

The atmosphere quickly became subtle and tense.

Professor Yang had a blank look on his face.

What’s wrong?

Had he not been fine just now?

This… Why did it suddenly seem like something was not right?

Shen Li followed Shen Zhijin’s line of sight and was silent for a moment.

Lu Huaiyu coughed lightly.

“Teacher Shen, Teacher Yang, I’ll be taking my leave first.”

Shen Zhijin responded indifferently and walked upstairs.

Shen Li moved closer to Lu Huaiyu and stuffed something into his hand.

“Goodbye, Second Brother.”

After saying that, she turned around and followed them.

Lu Huaiyu waited for them to enter before lowering his head to look.

A milk candy with the same temperature as her fingertips was lying quietly in his hand.
