Chapter 769 - Do You Want to Try It?
This was the answer that Yu Yu wanted to hear, but for some reason, Shen Li’s words made her feel a little uncomfortable.
She did not know if it was because the expression on Shen Li’s beautiful face was too casual and lazy, or whether the tone of her voice was too indifferent.
In short, she gave off the feeling that she really was not interested and could not be bothered with the matter.
Yu Yu pursed her lips and suppressed the waves in her heart. She smiled and said, “I remember that there’s a western restaurant on the 21st floor that serves very good steak. There’s also a Haicheng private restaurant that serves very authentic dishes. Miss Shen, perhaps you might like to try the food there.”
Before Shen Li could say anything, the man standing beside her spoke up.
“Thank you for your kind intentions, President Yu. However, Ah Li isn’t very interested in steak, and Haicheng cuisine isn’t her favorite, so it’s better to forget it.”
Subconsciously, Yu Yu looked at him, and a rare look of surprise appeared on her face. She had obviously not expected Lu Huaiyu to actually… reject her so directly.
Lu Huaiyu smiled faintly.
“I know quite well what Ah Li likes to eat and what she doesn’t like to eat, so I won’t need to trouble President Yu to give me any pointers.”
Yu Yu’s lips instantly paled.
She had almost forgotten that this was the Capital. By saying all this in front of Lu Huaiyu, had she not appeared to be showing off in front of someone who already knew better than her?
The elevator reached the 21st floor.
The small group of people immediately made way for Lu Huaiyu to leave with Shen Li.
“Take care, Second Master. Take care, Miss Shen.”
The people from the Lu Corporation hurriedly said.
Yu Yu looked at the two of them as they left and frowned.
However, this look only flashed across her face and her expression quickly returned to normal so no one saw it.
The elevator door closed and it continued to move upwards.
Shen Li and Lu Huaiyu arrived at the restaurant.
Lu Huaiyu was obviously a frequent customer here. As soon as they arrived, someone immediately welcomed them and led them to the private room inside.
The entire place was quiet and elegant.
The two of them sat down and Lu Huaiyu handed the menu to her.
She lowered her eyes slightly as the decorative light above her emitted a faint light that reflected on her face. Her thick and curly eyelashes cast two faint shadows beneath her eyelids. A strand of her hair fell down and scattered around her cheeks, making her skin look even more delicate and porcelain white. Her skin was clear and seemed to be so translucent that even light could be seen through it.
“Ah Li, I remember previously that you liked the movie “Hibiscus”?” Lu Huaiyu casually asked.
Shen Li nodded slightly and flipped through the menu listing that day’s specialties.
“That movie is pretty good.”
It was good to watch and also made money. How could she not like it?
Lu Huaiyu smiled and said, “Then you just said… you were not interested?”
“I wasn’t interested in what she was saying,” Shen Li said honestly.
Lu Huaiyu leaned back in his chair and asked with raised eyebrows, “Then, what is it that you are most interested in?”
Shen Li finally raised her eyes. Her dark and watery peach blossom eyes were suffused with a faint light.
She hooked her finger.
“Then Second Brother, come closer and I’ll tell you.”
Lu Huaiyu laughed and moved closer as he was told. He tilted his head slightly.
Shen Li leaned forward and whispered into his ear.
Her voice was extremely soft. It was so soft that Lu Huaiyu felt that even the sound of his heart beating seemed clearer than before, almost overpowering it.
The sound seemed to be burning hot, with a temperature that could almost burn blood and soul, burning all the way to the bottom of his heart.
He paused for a while, before slowly smiling as his gaze met her eyes. His voice was low and slightly hoarse.
“Hmm? What did you just say? I didn’t hear it clearly.”
Shen Li looked at him, gazing deeply into his eyes.
In the next moment, she kissed his lips, which immediately parted at the first touch.
She tilted her head slightly as she gave an innocent smile.
“Did you hear me clearly this time?”
Lu Huaiyu’s Adam’s apple rolled.
This little girl was truly…
The sound of knocking on the door interrupted the intimate atmosphere in the room. The waiter had come to serve tea.
The fragrant scent of Oolong tea wafted throughout the room.
Shen Li immediately retreated obediently and sat down in her seat, pretending as if nothing had happened. Her slender white fingers gently tapped on the menu.
“Hello, we’d like this, and this…”
After she had happily placed her order, she handed the menu over.
“Second Brother, is there anything else that you want to eat?”
Lu Huaiyu was completely entranced by her. How could he have the mood to eat?
“There’s no need. Just these will be fine.”
The waiter confirmed the dishes they ordered and left.
Shen Li held the cup and sipped her tea while Lu Huaiyu just looked at her.
“Second Brother, did we order too little? Will you have enough to eat?”
Shen Li asked.
Lu Huaiyu’s deep eyes stared at her. His gaze lingered on her moist lips for a moment before he slowly said, “There’s not enough to eat, but I’ll eat something else later. It’s the same.”
Shen Li silently put down the cup, silently planning to wait for the waiter to come over and make sure to add two more dishes.
Shen Li then realized that it was useless to order two more dishes.
Lu Huaiyu continued to eat as much as she did but never more.
Moreover, he ate quickly. He would eat first before helping to serve her the dishes.
It seemed that he had made up his mind to make up for the weight that she had lost during this period of time.
This caused the meal to end rather quickly.
By the time the two of them came out of the restaurant, it was only seven o’clock.
After getting into the car, Lu Huaiyu said, “Let’s go back to Xijing University.”
However, after Yi Bin had driven a short distance, Lu Huai suddenly changed his mind. “Wait, let’s go back to Rongyue Mansion first.”
Shen Li looked at him in surprise.
Lu Huaiyu said in a low voice, “I suddenly remembered that I forgot to bring the gift I got for you. I remember that you don’t have any classes tonight, right?”
Shen Li nodded. She had originally thought that she would get the gift on another day. However, since they were not very far from Rongyue Mansion and they could just make a quick detour, she agreed.
“Okay, Second Master.”
Yi Bin turned the steering wheel and headed towards Rongyue Mansion.
Twenty minutes later, the car arrived at the Rongyue Mansion.
When Lu Huaiyu got out of the car, Shen Li paused to think for a moment before deciding to follow him.
After all, this gift was for her. It did not seem appropriate for her to just wait in the car.
The two went upstairs together.
When they arrived at the door, Lu Huaiyu entered the password to open the door and entered first.
Shen Li followed behind him.
Lu Huaiyu suddenly stood still. Then, he turned around and covered her hand which was still holding onto the door handle, enclosing her hand with warmth.
Shen Li’s heart skipped a beat. His hand was so hot.
The door closed.
He was extremely close, so the feeling of oppression was extremely strong.
Finally, Shen Li vaguely felt something and looked up at him. “Second Brother? Didn’t you want to bring me a gift?”
Lu Huaiyu switched on the lights.
He lowered his head slightly. His eyes seemed to be burning with fire as they swept across her face.
“I heard you.”
He spoke in a low voice.
“People say that you must maintain an exploratory heart towards the things that interest you.”
He held her hand. His voice was slightly husky, seeming to carry a fatal temptation and bewitchment.
In the quiet room, his voice was exceptionally clear as it fell upon her heart.
“Ah Li, do you want to try it?”
