Chapter 799 - Little Ancestor
Whatever else Lu Huaiyu had wanted to say got stuck in his throat. Almost subconsciously, he turned to look at Shen Li.
At the same time, Shen Li also looked over at him.
Then, she frowned slightly, as if she was stumped by this question.
They had drunk a few times…
Both she and him…
She looked at Lu Huaiyu and then at Shen Zhijin, countless images flying through her mind.
She tried to see them clearly, but she found it difficult.
Shen Zhijin was still waiting for her answer.
Shen Li grabbed his arm, looking a little aggrieved,
Such a simple word instantly broke the suffocating atmosphere.
Shen Zhijin pressed the back of his hand against her forehead. It was a little hot, but it had probably not been caused by illness, but by drinking.
He had wanted to question her, but seeing that she was in pain, he found that he could not care about anything else now.
“Then let’s go home.”
He held her wrist as he spoke in a gentle voice.
Shen Li nodded.
Lu Huaiyu’s anxious heart felt slightly relieved.
He really did not know what kind of words Shen Li would potentially say in her current state tonight, and how much more trouble she would cause him.
Just then, Lin Fengmian also came back.
He was about to greet them when he found that the atmosphere here had become a little strange.
Shen Li was standing in the middle, very close to Shen Zhijin. Her cheeks were a little flushed, probably because she was drunk.
After he had left, he had thought about it and been a little concerned about her condition, so he had very quickly come back.
Initially, when he had seen that Lu Huaiyu and Shen Zhijin were with her, he had heaved a sigh of relief. He thought that with the two of them taking care of Shen Li, nothing would go wrong.
However, now that he was before them, he realized that things seemed to be a little… different from when he had left?
No one was saying anything. Everyone’s expressions looked the same, but the atmosphere…
Something was not right.
Something was very wrong.
Lin Fengmian spoke.
“Teacher Shen, Sister drank some wine just now. Is she alright?”
Shen Zhijin paused for a moment before saying,”She’s fine.”
Lin Fengmian hesitated a little.
Her appearance… she did not look fine, but even if anything was wrong, they were behaving as if everything was normal.
“Ah Li has a headache so I’ll take her home first.”
Shen Zhijin said.
He had driven here today and not taken any alcohol.
Lin Fengmian felt a little unwilling, but considering that Shen Li was drunk, and it was indeed very late, it was better for her to go home early to rest.
Nodding in agreement, he said, “I’ll see you out.”
Shen Zhijin nodded and began to lead Shen Li out.
He had only taken two steps when he suddenly thought of something and looked back.
Both his expression and the tone of his voice were very calm.
“Aren’t you going to send us off?”
Lu Huaiyu cleared his throat and followed them on his long legs.
Lin Fengmian watched from the side and frowned slightly.
Based on his previous observations, it had seemed that Shen Zhijin had never seemed willing to let Lu Huaiyu go back with them, right?
Now, he had actually taken the initiative to ask?
Moreover, Lu Huaiyu’s expression was also very subtle.
Lin Fengmian accompanied them to the door as he silently pondered this.
What exactly had happened during that short period of time?
However, he could feel that now was not a good time to ask these questions, so he quickly collected his thoughts.
Shen Zhijin and the other two came to the parking lot.
He let Shen Li sit in the front passenger seat before helping her fasten her seatbelt. Then, he went around the front of the car and went to the driver’s seat.
Lu Huaiyu tactfully got into the back seat.
The car slowly drove away.
The night was dark and the night wind was blowing gently.
The night in early March was still a little cold, but it was very warm and quiet in the car.
Shen Li sat in the passenger seat, feeling sleepy. Soon, she closed her eyes and fell asleep.
Therefore, the already quiet car was even quieter.
Half an hour later, they arrived at Tianye City. Only then did Shen Zhijin wake Shen Li up.
“Tangtang, wake up. We’re home.”
Shen Li opened her eyes. Perhaps it was because of the wine she had drunk, she was still very sleepy.
Hearing Shen Zhijin’s words, she forced herself to rely on her remaining willpower to hold her eyelids open and let out an extremely soft “Oh.”
Even so, she still did not move and continued to sit in her own seat, either because she was in a daze or due to something else.
Seeing her like this, Shen Zhijin frowned slightly and called her again.
Lu Huaiyu had already pushed open the door and gotten out of the car. He went to the passenger seat and opened the door.
Seeing that the little girl was sitting obediently in her seat, with her eyes seemingly unfocused and confused, Lu Huaiyu raised his head and said, “Teacher Shen, Ah Li is prone to behaving like this when she is drunk. Don’t worry.”
Shen Zhijin was silent for a moment.
Only after Lu Huaiyu had said those words did he finally realized how easily his words could be misinterpreted.
Thus, he went silent for a moment.
After a suffocating silence, Shen Zhijin spoke slowly, in a calm tone of voice.
“It looks like you’re quite familiar with this situation.”
“Tangtang has a headache and can’t remember clearly. But since you didn’t drink, you should still remember clearly, right?”
Shen Zhijin looked at him.
“What is it? Why do you need to take such a long time to count?”
Lu Huaiyu really felt that everything was not going well tonight.
He sighed lightly and met Shen Zhijin’s gaze.
“Teacher Shen, Ah Li was drunk twice before, and this is the third time. I tried to advise her about this before, but she probably drank again today because she was so happy.”
Shen Zhijin did not say anything more. He got out of the car and went to the front passenger seat again.
Lu Huaiyu consciously turned to the side.
Shen Zhijin called out to her again. At the same time, he held her hand and led her out of the car.
Fortunately, although she was a little confused, she could still walk on her own.
After getting out of the car, she came to stand beside Shen Zhijin. When she spotted Lu Huaiyu out of the corner of her eye, she smiled again. In an affectionate tone of voice, and with a hint of soft coquettishness, she said, “Lu Huaiyu.”
Lu Huaiyu also smiled.
