Chapter 740 - The Little Girl Needs to be Taught a Lesson
Lu Huaiyu met her gaze and raised his eyebrows slightly.
Shen Li observed his expression and confirmed that he was only asking this question casually. Feeling slightly relieved, she retracted her gaze.
She agreed casually.
It was one thing to plan, but whether it could be carried out was another.
Gu Siqi came forward and asked excitedly, “Second Brother, I heard that you have very good horsemanship as well. I heard that you even won first place in an international equestrian competition before?”
Lu Huaiyu tilted his head slightly and said with a smile, “That was a long time ago.”
At that time, he had been in Bai City, and the international equestrian competition for that year had also happened to be held there.
Originally, he had not been interested in this kind of thing. However, at that time, he had just won a champion horse and had coincidentally made a bet with someone, so he decided to participate in the competition. In the end, he had won first place.
After that, the International Equestrian Association had invited him to participate in the competition, but he had refused.
Because of this, there was very little information on the Internet. All anyone could find was a short video of him participating in the final of the equestrian competition in Bai City.
As for anything more, there was none available.
The equestrian competition had been held abroad, and several years had already passed. Many people in the country did not know much about it. At most, all they knew was that the second master of the Lu family in the Capital liked to raise horses.
The reason the twin Gu brothers knew about it was because they had been studying in Bai City. Also, coming from the Gu family in Hong Kong City, they knew a lot about horse racing.
Shen Li said, “Second Brother, you should go ahead and test ride the horse. I’ll take the two of them for a walk.”
Gu Sicheng hurriedly said, “Let’s watch Second Brother first!”
No one had ever broken Lu Huaiyu’s record in the equestrian finals in Bai City. The brothers were a little excited to see him on the field with their own eyes.
Boys were always prone to develop admiration for the strong.
Lu Huaiyu responded with a smile. Only then did he release Shen Li’s reins. He tilted his head slightly and said in a low voice, “Then, just wait here obediently for me to come back.”
Shen Li met his gaze.
The horse racing area was extremely vast and had been divided into several areas.
Some people were having equestrian lessons, while others were having small-scale horse races.
However, when Lu Huaiyu appeared, everyone’s eyes were involuntarily drawn to him.
Shen Li observed him from afar.
It was clearly his first time riding that horse, but his movements were still standard and smooth without any obstructions from the beginning to the end.
Lu Huaiyu’s equestrian skills had already reached such a level.
Gu Siqi and Gu Sicheng were both extremely excited as they watched him.
Gu Siqi sighed.
“Cousin, Second Brother is indeed worthy of taking the first place in the international equestrian competition! If only I were half as good as him!”
Shen Li raised her chin.
“Isn’t this a good opportunity to learn from him?”
Gu Siqi let out an “Ah” sound.
“Just watching him like this, I reckon that there’s a limit to what I can learn…”
Shen Li said, “How can that be? You just need to put in more effort.”
One could naturally follow and learn just by observing more.
Lu Huaiyu was very satisfied with the white horse, so he quickly settled on it. At the same time, he officially gave it a name– Star-Tread.
That day, Star-Tread was moved from Zone Z into a private stall, where it was to be screened.
By the time everything was done, it was already 4:30 pm.
Gu Siqi and Gu Sicheng left early and went to the rest area for a drink. Shen Li and Lu Huaiyu then came out of the VIP center together.
Shen Li looked at the time.
“Second Brother, shouldn’t you be going home to rest?”
Lu Huaiyu would usually take a nap around this time in the afternoon.
She was not sure if he had been delayed from it.
As if he had seen through her thoughts, Lu Huai smiled casually as he walked.
“There’s no need.”
Recently, his sleeping time in the afternoon had been reduced to one hour. A slight change in time would not have much of an impact.
Hearing his words, Shen Li was relieved.
“But now that you mention it, I seem to feel a little sleepy.”
Lu Huaiyu said.
Shen Li asked,”Then let’s go back first–”
Lu Huaiyu interrupted her.
Shen Li turned her head. Seeing that he was standing still, she stopped as well. “Hmm?”
At this moment, they were in the corridor. On the right was a row of rooms, while on the left was a clear window.
The afternoon sun shone in from the window, bright and warm.
It was quiet, only the two of them were there.
He slowly took off his gloves and stepped forward. His knees pressed against her legs, easily trapping her in this narrow space.
Because he was against the light, his face was hidden in the faint shadows, so she could not see it clearly.
However, she could still feel his silent, greedy gaze landing on her face.
“Actually, I came here today because there’s another thing that I have to do.”
He smiled deeply. In the next moment, he cupped her chin and lowered his head to kiss her.
He had come to get what he wanted.
This kiss had been a long time coming. It was filled with longing after a long separation. Of course, it also carried a little bit of revenge for the teasing she had intentionally done last night. It was passionate and forceful.
Shen Li was caught off guard, her soft lips already conquered by him.
Her eyes widened slightly. She was about to step back when she realized that her back was already pressed against the cold, hard wall.
She felt a slight pain. Only then did she remember that the wall behind her was specially decorated. The whole wall was uneven so there was no way for her to press herself flat against it.
His other arm stretched out and wrapped around her slender waist. As he kissed her, he said gently, “Are you in pain? Then, come closer.”
She could not move back, so she could only move into his embrace.
However, they were already so close to each other!
His tone was especially gentle, but as he kissed her, there was an inescapable feeling of eagerness and dominance.
Since yesterday, he had waited for an opportunity to finally teach her a lesson. So, how could he let it go so easily?
She was surrounded by these two conflicting feelings, and her heart beat violently.
Finally, she raised her hand, hooked it around his neck, and tentatively pushed the tip of her tongue toward him.
He quickly noticed this small action.
He tightened his palm, burying her deeper into his arms to ask for more.
She had gone almost completely limp in his arms, and a soft gasp came out from the corner of her lips.
“… Lu… Lu Huaiyu…”
She gently tugged on his clothes and raised her flag in surrender.
His chest trembled, and he smiled deeply. Finally, he showed mercy and kissed her face gently.
“Do you know your mistake?”
Shen Li rested her forehead on his shoulder and gave a low “Mm”.
“Do you dare to do it again next time?”
She was quiet for a while before obediently nodding.
There was a moment of silence.
Lu Huaiyu raised his eyebrows and pulled her out of his arms. He stared into her eyes and said lazily, “Say it again?”
This little girl really deserved to be taught a lesson.
As Shen Li met his gaze, her mind was filled with the scene of him as he rode the horse in the horse racing area today.
This was real, true and so close at hand.
There was also the sentence that he had said with a smile in English– “The scenery in Leland is nice. It’s a good place to relax.”
She leaned over to quickly kiss him on the lips.
Even if she could no longer step into Leland, she still thought that Leland was a good place.
Because he had been there.
