Chapter 706 - Lu Huaiyu VS Shen Zhijin  

Chapter 706: Lu Huaiyu VS Shen Zhijin

Shen Li and Lu Huaiyu headed towards Skyleaf City together.

They did not need to go far, and the black Bentley soon arrived downstairs.

Shen Li opened the car door and was about to get out with her gift when she said,”Second Brother, wait for me, I’ll be down soon.”

The tips of Lu Huaiyu’s brows raised slightly.

“Since it’s for me, I think it’s better if I go up and get it personally. What do you think?”

Shen Li glanced at him and knew that he had already made up his mind. She nodded.

“Okay.”

As she spoke, she took a step back and Lu Huaiyu followed her out of the car.

The two of them walked towards the lobby.

“Ah Li, are you cold?”

Lu Huaiyu asked in a low voice.

Shen Li shook her head. “I’m not cold.”

Although the temperature was very low today, they had been sitting in the car the whole time. How could she be cold?

Lu Huaiyu bent his head and leaned in closer, his voice carrying a lazy smile as he spoke.

“But I’m cold, what should I do?”

Shen Li, “…”

It was only a short distance…

She stretched her hand out to hold his warm fingers.

“Liar.”

She whispered.

The temperature of his palm was clearly higher than hers.

The corners of Lu Huaiyu’s lips curved slightly as he pretended that he had not heard her words. He held her hand even tighter and whispered in her ear, “Thank you, Ah Li.”

Shen Li pretended to ignore him and pulled his hand to walk towards the elevator.

The two of them entered the elevator and Lu Huaiyu pressed the button for the ninth floor.

A moment later.

Ding–

The elevator door opened.

When Shen Li came to the front door, she pulled her hand away.

Lu Huaiyu was forced to reluctantly let go of her hand and let her input the password.

The palm of his hand suddenly felt empty, as if even a certain part of his heart was empty.

His slender fingers curled up slightly before he followed Shen Li into the room.

The gift had been placed in the bedroom. Shen Li walked in and took out… a painting.

Lu Huaiyu’s gaze focused slightly.

The painting was not big. The size was about 25cm × 25cm.

However, the main thing was that it was a painting that had been produced by her own hands.

Shen Li handed the painting over.

“Second Brother.”

Lu Huaiyu took it and looked at the painting, his eyes darkening.

It was an oil painting, and the theme was Christmas Eve.

Outside the window, the night air looked dense, and the crescent moon hung high in the sky. The streets were decorated with lanterns and colored lights, giving off a strong festive atmosphere.

The Christmas tree in front of the store was decorated with all kinds of small gifts and colored lights, shining brilliantly.

An intricate and gorgeous Christmas wreath could be seen hanging on the main door, and one could even see the faint glow on the small golden bells.

Even through the thin layer of the drawing paper, one could still feel the excitement and joy.

However, this was not the most important thing.

Lu Huaiyu’s gaze fell upon the transparent glass window.

It was extremely light and thin, but on it, there was a side profile.

The appearance of the face could not be clearly seen, but the black hair that hung down, the smooth lines from the brow to the bridge of the nose, the sharp and smooth jawline…

It was him.

Lu Huaiyu stared at the painting for a long time before he asked in a low voice, “Ah Li, is this… a painting of me?”

Shen Li answered softly, “Yes.”.

Lu Huaiyu’s Adam’s apple rolled. “This was from last year’s Christmas.”

It was not a question, but a confirmation.

That was because he had also seen a faint, rich color in the corner. It was the small cake balloon that he had given her that day.

Shen Li looked at him and blinked.

Everything that she had thought had been put into this painting.

That day at the movie, she had not actually paid attention to it.

All she had thought about was the person in the painting.

Lu Huaiyu was silent for a long time before he finally smiled.

“Ah Li, come here.”

He said.

Shen Li heard him and moved forward.

He held her hand and gently kissed her delicate and precious fingers.

His voice was deep and slightly hoarse.

“Why are you so obedient, hmm?”

Shen Li allowed him to kiss her, and a subtle tickle spread from her hand.

Sensing that his eyes were getting darker, she finally said,”Second Brother, we should go. If we stay here any longer, we’ll be late.”

It was difficult to make a reservation at a restaurant on Christmas Eve, even though this was not generally a problem for Lu Huaiyu.

However, her intuition told her that it would be really dangerous if she continued to stay here.

Just like last time–

Lu Huaiyu understood what she meant and could not help but laugh.

“Okay.”

Shen Zhijin went upstairs and entered the password to open the door.

Then, he spotted a pair of men’s shoes at the entrance that should not have been there.

He paused and looked up.

There was no one in the living room, and there was no one in the kitchen and dining room.

On his handsome and cold face, his expression remained calm.

Just then, Shen Li and Lu Huaiyu happened to walk out of the bedroom.

Due to the angle, the two of them did not notice Shen Zhijin standing at the door.

Lu Huaiyu was holding a painting in one hand as he held Shen Li’s hand in the other.

After she closed the door, he lowered his head and approached her, speaking in a slight flirtatious tone,”Ah Li, are you that scared? The last time that I came, didn’t you return–”

He suddenly stopped talking.

That was because he felt a substantial gaze that seemed to fall on his shoulder.

At the same time, Shen Li also sensed something and turned her head to look in the same direction.

When she saw Shen Zhijin, she paused for a while before calling out dryly, “Dad.”

The corners of Lu Huaiyu’s eyes twitched.

Then, he quietly straightened up and looked back at the man.

Shen Zhijin was standing at the door with a black suitcase next to him. It looked travel-worn, and it should be…

He had just… just returned.

The space seemed to freeze, and the surroundings had gone silent.

Lu Huaiyu greeted him with a smile.

“Teacher Shen.”

Shen Zhijin did not say anything.

Shen Li coughed lightly. “Dad, didn’t you say that your flight would be tomorrow?”

“It’s Christmas Eve today, so I wanted to come back and spend it with you.”

In order to end his trip ahead of schedule, he had been working overtime over the past two days.

As he spoke, he finally looked at Lu Huaiyu.

After exchanging glances for a moment, Lu Huaiyu said sincerely, “Teacher Shen, I came here to pick Ah Li up for dinner. I also came up to pick up the Christmas present that Ah Li gave me.”

“Okay.”

Shen Zhijin’s gaze swept past the painting in his hand, the tone of his voice remaining calm.

“Then, what about last time?”
