Chapter 797 - Lu Huaiyu, Aren’t You Going to Carry Me Back to Bed?
Lu Huaiyu’s gaze froze instantly.
The voice of the little girl in front of him had been very soft, but he could hear it clearly.
She had said, “You’ve finally shaved your beard. It hurt a little when you pricked me earlier.”.
Lu Huaiyu’s deep phoenix eyes narrowed slightly. His gaze fixed on her face as he kept on recalling her words.
They had known each other for a long time, but he had never done such a thing before.
The second master of the Lu family had been born into a good family. He seemed to be languorous and indolent, but deep down inside, he was arrogant and difficult to discipline.
He was very particular about his clothes, food, accommodation, and clothing.
When he appeared in front of everyone, he would always be clean and tidy. In addition, he had a beautiful face, which made him seem even more like a beautiful unattainable flower on a high mountain. He always carried himself with a noble air.
However, the subtext of what she had said just now was that he had not shaved for a long time and had even rubbed his face against her face.
Why would he do such a thing?
Why would he treat her in such a manner?
Lu Huaiyu looked at the wine glass again. The alcohol content of the wine was not strong, but she did not have a very good tolerance for alcohol.
He pinched her soft cheeks.
“Are you drunk?”
Shen Li did not pay attention to his words. Instead, she raised her hand to pinch his face. She then stretched her arms out and wrapped them around his slender waist, as if she was trying to measure him.
She nodded in satisfaction.
“This is just right. You were too skinny before.”
She was half-lying in his arms. As she spoke, the warm breath and the sweet smell of peach wine wafted out, as if the air had been dyed with the same flirtatious color that stained her cheeks and lips.
Lu Huaiyu placed one hand on the back of the sofa while the other gently held her waist, allowing her to behave coquettishly in his arms.
He looked down at her. Seeing her serious expression, he decided to tease her.
He smile with interest and asked, “Oh? Was I too thin before?”
Shen Li nodded. “Yes.”
Originally, the two of them had been sitting side by side, facing each other. Now, that she had come nearer, with one hand propped on one of his long legs, the upper part of her body was almost touching his.
Hearing him ask this question, she tilted her head slightly and spotted the raisin muffins and fruit juice that he had just brought over and placed on the small table beside her.
She emphasized very seriously, “You should eat more.”
Lu Huaiyu raised his eyebrows and looked in the direction of her line of sight.
This was what she liked to eat. He had originally brought it for her, but now, she was giving it to him.
“Ah Li, aren’t you going to eat it?”
Hearing this, Shen Li seemed to be a little lost in thought. She stared at the plate of raisin muffins for a while, then shook her head and said softly, “I can’t eat it.”
Lu Huaiyu looked at her.
Earlier, when he came to ask, she had said that she still wanted to eat. Why was it that she did not want to eat anymore, now that she was drunk?
“Why can’t you eat it? These are all for Ah Li.” His voice was low and gentle.
Shen Li turned her head to look at him, as if she was a little puzzled by his words.
It had been a long time since she could eat normally. How could she eat these?
She said, “That’s right, I can’t eat them.”
Lu Huaiyu was familiar with her behavior when she was very drunk. So, when he heard the little girl’s stubborn tone, he did not try to persuade her any further. He merely smiled and responded good-naturedly.
“Alright, I’ll listen to Ah Li then.”
Whenever she was drunk, she would always reveal a rarely seen cuteness, so he was especially indulgent.
When Shen Li heard what he said, her attention finally shifted away from the plate of raisin muffins.
She suddenly thought of something and moved closer to him again. She gently held his shoulder with one hand and leaned in close to his firm and flat chest.
Her soft hair brushed gently against his chin, lightly tickling him.
His Adam’s apple moved a little as he decided to pick her up. However, before he could move, the tip of Shen Li’s perky nose twitched slightly.
“You didn’t smoke either.”
She muttered softly. When she looked up again, her peach blossom eyes were bright and her dimples were shallow. Her mood seemed to be better than before.
As their eyes met and he saw the way she was smiling, that subtle and indescribable feeling surged up again.
She seemed to mind that he smoked.
It was not that he was not allowed to smoke, but… when she realized that he had not smoked and did not smell like smoke, she seemed to be happier.
It was usually not obvious, but when she was drunk, she would reveal this kind of emotion.
Previously after the Thorn Night show, she had drunk a glass of red wine at the celebration party. When she had ridden in his car with him, she had done the same thing and smelled his body.
It was normal for young girls to not like the smell of cigarettes. In fact, Lu Huaiyu himself did not like it either.
He did not actually have a smoking addiction.
When he first met her, she had still been a minor, so he had paid more attention to this aspect.
There had only been one time when he had not seen her in a long time. It was because he had really wanted to see her that he had smoked one.
Eventually, when he had gone to look for her later, she had smelled it on him.
Hence, after that, he had not touched it again.
It had only been that one time, so the smell should have long faded away. Had the little girl had remembered it even after all this time?
He smoothed her long hair and coaxed her gently.
“Yes, I didn’t smoke.”
She rolled her eyes, turned around, and snuggled in his arms.
She rested her head on his chest after having found a comfortable angle for herself.
“Lu Huaiyu, I’m very happy today.”
His arm was around her waist. She lowered her head slightly and played with his fingers.
When Lu Huaiyu lowered his head, all he could see was only her smooth and full forehead, the bridge of her nose, and her slightly quivering eyelashes.
Although he could not see her current expression, it was not difficult to tell from the tone of her voice that she was indeed very happy at the moment.
It was rare for her to reveal her emotions like this, let alone talk about it so frankly.
Lu Huaiyu gently placed his chin on top of her hair and laughed softly.
“Yes, I know.”
It was simply too obvious.
Just then, a familiar sound of footsteps could be heard.
After Shen Zhijin had finished his conversation with some of the other guests, he came back and saw Shen Li and Lu Huaiyu sitting together.
However, that was not the main point. The main point was that at this moment, Shen Li was almost completely nestled in Lu Huaiyu’s arms.
His footsteps paused slightly, and he calmly turned his gaze to Lu Huaiyu.
For a brief moment, the both of them merely stared at each other. After a pause, Lu Huaiyu finally said, “Teacher Shen, Ah Li has just been drinking.”
That was his explanation.
Shen Zhijin’s gaze fell on the empty wine glass.
Shen Li lowered her head slightly, as if she had not noticed his arrival at all. It could only be vaguely seen that her cheeks were a little red, probably from having been drinking.
Lu Huaiyu lowered his head and gently patted her hand.
“Ah Li, it’s time to go home.”
Shen Li still felt a little hot, and her brain was also a little fuzzy.
Hearing this, she nodded subconsciously and said, “Okay.”
While supporting her, Lu Huaiyu backed away slightly help to her get up.
Sensing his movements, Shen Li was momentarily stunned and turned back to look at him.
Her cheeks were still slightly red, and her eyes were somewhat vacant, as if she was a little surprised and at a loss.
The next moment, she asked, “Lu Huaiyu, aren’t you going to carry me back to bed?”
