Chapter 699 - Send Ah Li Back?
The elevator door opened again. He then stepped back slightly and lifted her hood.
She looked up, with watery eyes. Her fair little face was flushed red and moving, with a hint of embarrassment.
Just as she was about to say something, someone came in from outside the elevator.
He smiled and held her hand, not giving her a chance to complain.
“Let’s go home.”
This low and pleasant voice attracted the attention of the other people again.
She endured it, having no choice but to swallow the words in her throat and obediently follow him out.
Even when the two of them had gotten into the car, the tips of her ears were still burning.
The corners of Lu Huaiyu’s lips curved into a smile before he said to Yi Bin, “Let’s go back to Skyleaf City.”
It was close to Christmas, so both sides of the street had already been decorated. There was a strong festive atmosphere everywhere.
Shen Li looked out of the window and saw the bright lights on the street. She thought of last year’s Christmas.
At that time, she had never thought that when they went to see a movie together a year later, it would be such an intimate gesture.
Lu Huaiyu turned his head to look at her.
“Is it nice?”
His beautiful face was reflected in the car window, and the smile on his lips was faintly discernible.
She did not turn her head back, but her eyes looked at the reflection. When she saw that he had a smile on his face, the hand hidden beneath the down jacket reached out a little and silently hooked his finger.
The tip of his brows raised slightly, and he obediently allowed her delicate fingers to entangle with his.
On the surface, it looked as if their sleeves were pressed together, but in reality, beneath the sleeves, their fingers were already intertwined.
Even though the palms of their hands were already sweaty, they were intertwined in an ambiguous, moist, and hot manner.
She was still looking out of the window. It was unknown which lamp on the street she was looking at,
Forty minutes later, the black Bentley arrived at Skyleaf City.
“Second Brother, I’ll be going home first.”
As she spoke, she moved to pull her hand out, but he did not her let go.
He said, “Let me send you to your doorstep.”
Shen Li glanced at him.
Although they were at the entrance of the residential area, it was in fact, not very far to walk home from here.
Lu Huaiyu raised his chin.
She was stunned and turned her head to look.the night sky, white snowflakes were flying in the air.
There was a thin layer of snow on the ground. It was clear that it had been snowing for a while.
She sat back down obediently.
The car continued to drive inside the area, and finally, it slowly stopped at the second building.
Lu Huaiyu pushed the door open and got out.
Shen Li was about to follow him out when she heard a familiar voice coming from the front.
Lu Huaiyu turned his head and saw Zhang Yao walking over.
“I knew you looked familiar. So, it really is you.”
After seeing Lu Huaiyu’s face clearly, Zhang Yao smiled and his gaze fell on the car.
“Were you sending Ah Li home?”
Shen Li paused as she heard Lu Huaiyu respond with a smile.
Shen Li got out of the car and greeted Zhang Yao.
Zhang Yao chuckled.
He thought to himself. It was normal for young people to go out for a meal and a date when they were in a relationship.
It was snowing today, and Lu Huaiyu was personally sending the girl to her doorstep. Not bad, not bad.
“Okay, then I’ll go upstairs first.”
As Zhang Yao said this, he smiled and walked into the entrance lobby.
Shen Li looked at Lu Huaiyu.
“Second Brother, so I’ll be leaving now, okay?”
Lu Huaiyu paused.
“I don’t think I’ve seen what your new house looks like.”
Shen Li momentarily froze before she asked uncertainly, “… So, does Second Brother want to go up and take a look?”
Lu Huaiyu’s thin lips twitched slightly.
“Since Ah Li has taken the initiative to invite me, I’ll go up and have a look.”
Shen Li, “…”
Lu Huaiyu ruffled her hair and smiled.
“Teacher Shen asked me to bring all the things that you left at Rongyue Residence over. However, you never went over to pack them up. So, I helped you pack them up and brought them over.”
When he said that, Shen Li remembered that there had indeed been such a thing.
It had not been her intention. It was just that she had not had much time recently and had gotten so busy that she had forgotten about it.
In fact, it was mostly clothes and shoes over there, as well as some miscellaneous daily items.
It did not make much of a difference if she kept them over there or here at Skyleaf City.
However, since he had sent them over–
“Thank you, Second Brother.”
Lu Huaiyu opened the trunk of the car and took out a cardboard box.
Shen Li took Lu Huaiyu upstairs.
She pushed the door open and entered before taking out a pair of slippers for him at the entrance.
Lu Huaiyu followed her inside, looking around as they walked.
It was a little different from what he had expected, but it was also somewhat similar.
The difference was that he had thought that since Shen Zhijin had lived alone for many years, the house should be simple and empty.
But in fact, this was not the case.
With the paintings hanging on the wall and the camellias that had been placed on the table, the house did not look like a place that belonged to someone who was living alone.
Suddenly, his eyes focused.
A transparent glass cabinet came into view, and he could see all kinds of small gifts inside.
Shen Li followed his line of sight.
“Those are the gifts that Dad bought for me over the years.”
Lu Huaiyu had already guessed it.
He walked over and scanned the cabinet carefully.
Shen Li came to his side.
He looked at her for a while before turning his head to look at her. He gently pinched her cheek and said with a smile,”I’ve said it before. Ah Li is so good that she’s a very lovable person.”
Shen Li did not say anything, but her eyes seemed to smile.
Lu Huaiyu lifted his chin slightly as they looked at the cardboard box on the ground.
“Should this be placed in your room?”
Shen Li nodded and walked over to open the bedroom door.
Lu Huaiyu helped her carry the box in and looked around the room.
The pony doll by the bed, the star chandelier overhead, her clothes on the chair, and her computer on the table…
Her presence was everywhere.
He recalled the first time he had gone to her room in Lincheng. It had been small and cramped, and when they had sat facing each other, his knees almost rubbed against hers.
This place here was completely different.
He leaned against the door, with his long legs slightly relaxed.
Shen Li had already begun to take the things out of the box.
He had actually left her clothes and shoes at Rongyue Mansion. All the things he had brought this time were almost all small things.
As she pulled something out, she suddenly stopped.
Lu Huaiyu had actually brought her glass candy jar.
Sensing her movement, Lu Huaiyu looked over as well. His gaze fell on the glass candy jar, and the corners of his lips curled into a meaningful smile.
The candy jar was transparent, so he could clearly see what was inside.
Some candy, a small cake balloon that had been put away, two movie tickets, and folded paper.
Her intentions were so clear.
Shen Li did not raise her head, but she could feel his gaze on her and her face became slightly warm.
She stood up and placed the things on the table.
Lu Huaiyu asked with a smile, “I remember that you brought it from Yunzhou to the Capital. I thought that it was probably very important to you, so I brought it over to you.”
Shen Li lowered her head slightly. Her fair cheeks had turned slightly rose-colored.
She nodded. Her voice was very soft, like a long string of sugar. The air was also filled with a sweet smell.
“It’s very important.”
