Chapter 758 - She Will Never be Able to Compete Again!
He was asking about the time she had just mentioned.
As they spoke, he was extremely close to her. His cool and soft lips brushed over her lips, one after another, as he gently and patiently kissed her.
It was clearly just a simple touch. He had kissed her so many times in ways that were more passionate and forceful than this, but this moment of intimacy had also stretched the ambiguous sexual tension to the extreme.
Shen Li moved back slightly, with slightly red eyes.
After a moment, she raised her hand to cover her lips and moved closer to the corner of his lips.
The soft back of her hand and the cool lips separated as soon as they touched.
Lu Huaiyu gave her an intense look, as his thin lips twitched slightly.
“So, you knew at that time?”
Shen Li froze.
Lu Huaiyu cupped her face and gently stroked her lips with his fingers. He coaxed her in a low voice.
“So… you knew that I liked you so long ago?”
Shen Li did not say anything. Her watery and sparkling peach blossom eyes merely looked back at him.
Lu Huaiyu laughed.
“Then, why did you make me chase you for so long?”
This accusation was really unreasonable.
Shen Li raised her small face and retorted, “In what way was it so long?”
If it had really been that long, she would not have chosen to be with him on that particular day.
Lu Huaiyu seemed to have thought of this as well. He smiled and said, “Ah, that’s true. After all, Ah Li gave me candy to eat.”
Shen Li’s face was extremely hot. She struggled to get out of his arms.
“Put me down. I want to eat.”
Lu Huaiyu wrapped his arms around her waist and took her spoon with one hand.
“Which one do you want to eat?”
This was the posture of wanting to hug someone as they fed them.
Shen Li glared at him. It was a pity that her face was red and her peach-shaped eyes were flickering. It was not a deterrent in any way.
Lu Huaiyu smiled.
“You eat, I’ll eat candy.”
In the end, Shen Li began to eat the meal as she was held in Lu Huaiyu’s arms.
At first, Shen Li continued to try and struggle, but she realized that it was useless. In the end, she simply gave up.
At first, she thought that this man was getting more and more impudent. However, on second thought, she realized that they probably would not be seeing each other for half a month. After thinking about it for a while, she finally decided to forget about it.
Lu Huaiyu finally poured a glass of that bottle of plum sake.
The clear fragrance of the liquor spread between his lips and teeth.
He called out, and Shen Li turned around.
He lowered his head and kissed her. He nibbled her lips and swept the tip of his tongue over them lightly.
Shen Li’s waist went limp, as she subconsciously tried to push him away, but he had already retreated.
Then, she heard him say with a smile, “That day should have been like this, right?”
Shen Li began to regret mentioning this matter to him.
The meal lasted for nearly two hours.
In the end, Shen Li was still blushing as she was led out of the restaurant by Lu Huaiyu.
Lu Huaiyu lowered his head to look at her. Seeing that she was unwilling to speak or look at him, he bent his head closer and said with a soft laugh, “Miss Shen, did I not serve this meal well?”
Shen Li raised her eyes and gave him an accusing look.
Lu Huaiyu admitted his mistake and corrected himself.
“Then, I’ll try my best to improve next time and try to ensure that Miss Shen is satisfied.”
Shen Li realized then that she really could not win against Lu Huaiyu.
Lu Huaiyu finally sent her back to the Gu family’s mansion before returning to the hotel.
After entering the room, he unbuttoned his shirt collar and went to the balcony.
The evening breeze brushed over his face and dispersed the smell of alcohol.
At night, the lights in the bustling city of Hong Kong were bright and resplendent.
He gave Cheng Xiyue a call.
Cheng Xiyue quickly picked up.
Lu Huaiyu could vaguely hear the sounds of billiards on his end. It sounded like he was in the middle of a game.
He tugged at his collar and asked,”Cheng Xiyue, the first time I attended a parent-teacher meeting for Ah Li, she followed me back to Yunding Fenghua. Later on, she came back again, right?”
Cheng Xiyue did not react for a long time.
How long ago was this?
He thought about it again and again. Only then did he vaguely remember something.
“I think so. She said that she went back to see you, but you had fallen asleep… Wait, how did you know about this matter?”
Cheng Xiyue suddenly became alert, and his voice also tensed up.
Lu Huaiyu went quiet for some time.
“She unintentionally mentioned it to me today.”
Only then did Cheng Xiyue heave a sigh of relief.
“Oh, oh, so it was like this…”
Then, there should not be any problems…
“It was a small matter, so I didn’t mention it to you.”
Lu Huaiyu replied, “Hmm”. Then, he chatted about a few more things with Cheng Xiyue before hanging up.
He looked out of the window and stood silently for quite a while.
Yes, on the way back that afternoon, they had encountered a car accident.
That was why he did not remember what had happened during that short period of time.
However, he seemed to have been in a much better condition than before. It was probably because she had been there.
Lu Huaiyu gently exhaled.
LY training base.
After Ji Shu and the others had finished their training, the rest area was bustling with noise.
“Hey, what happened today? Did Doyle not come?”
“I heard that he was asked to go to the manager’s office. Rumor has it that the boss personally called to discuss the way practice was run in the past and the way he would be practicing in the future. At the moment, the manager is probably still talking to Doyle, right?”
“He definitely isn’t willing, but it won’t matter even if he isn’t willing. How can he overrule the boss? If he were to leave, he would have to pay a lot of compensation!”
“Serves him right. Who’s able to stand his arrogance? Ji Shu was right before. We’ve been training well, so why should he listen to his nonsense?”
Ji Shu sneered.
“He’s a coach that was hired by LY, not an ancestor. He’s spoiled.”
Ron patted Ji Shu’s shoulder.
“Forget it. Let’s not talk about him. Your training results improved again today. Not bad! How did you train?”
Ji Shu was already a prodigy. Before this, he had almost firmly occupied the number one spot within the team. However, due to his recent conflict with Doyle, he had not been training properly.
In the end, he had exploded today and broke the previous record.
“How did I train? I did the opposite of what Doyle said!” Ji Shu laughed wildly.
The group of people laughed.
“Ji Shu, you’re too despicable!”
Just then, a figure appeared in the corridor not far away.
It was a foreign man who looked to be around twenty-seven or twenty-eight years old. He was quite handsome, but at the moment, his face was gloomy and his eyes were somewhat dark, which made every feel very uncomfortable.
Noticing him, Ji Shu and the others all quieted down.
The atmosphere was stagnant.
Doyle walked over.
He had just quarreled with the manager. So, when he came out and heard the conversation between Ji Shu and the others, of course, his mood had not improved.
He stood in front of Ji Shu and the others as he swept his extremely cold gaze over them.
Originally, he had insisted on continuing with his own training plan, but LY’s upper management’s unyielding attitude had made him very unhappy.
Having these kinds of non-professional people forcefully interfering in matters they were not well-versed in caused him to be extremely annoyed!
A wave of anger pressed down on his chest. Having nowhere to vent his anger caused his expression and tone to be extremely unpleasant.
He picked up a list in his hand.
“Starting from tomorrow, we’ll be adjusting the training plan. All team members must be present, including the substitutes.”
As he spoke, he tapped on the piece of paper.
“Especially this Shen Li. She has the highest absenteeism rate on the entire team during training. If I don’t see her tomorrow, she will never be able to compete in any of LY’s official matches!”
