Chapter 841 - She Was More Important Than Anything Else
According to their original arrangements, Shen Li was to be coming alone, so they had booked just one room.
Unexpectedly, Lu Huaiyu had also come along.
Edmund’s thought process was actually very simple. Since Lu Huaiyu was here to accompany Shen Li, and they were a couple, he felt that was only normal for them to stay together.
After all, anyone with eyes could see that these two people had a good relationship, so it was only natural for them to have this kind of arrangement.
Shen Li remained silent.
She looked at Edmund blankly.
Shen Zhijin would be coming over later. Was he trying to get her to be sent away with this kind of arrangement?
Edmund did not understand Shen Li’s gaze, so he directed an enquiring look at Lu Huaiyu.
Lu Huaiyu seemed to be a little surprised as well. After a moment of reaction, he could not help but laugh.
When he looked at Shen Li, he saw that she was staring at Edmund with a very tense face.
Edmund noticed both of their reactions and finally realized something.
Why did they seem… unwilling?
Smiling, Lu Huaiyu said,”There’s no need. We have two separate rooms.”
Since this was his answer, Edmund could only nod in response.
A few minutes later, Edmund personally accompanied the two of them upstairs.
The two rooms were adjacent to each other and were both on the 36th floor.
Shen Li would be in 3601, Lu Huaiyu would be in 3602.
Considering that they had been on an eight-hour international flight, they had to be very tired at the moment. Since they had to be jet lagged, Edmund did not want to bother them too much.
Lu Huaiyu cupped Shen Li’s face.
“You should take a shower and have a good rest.”
Shen Li nodded and said, “Second Brother too.”
She had at least managed to get some sleep on the plane, but it seemed as if Lu Huaiyu had not slept much.
When they were in their home country, he had to have a nap every afternoon. Today, he had found it difficult to fall asleep, but the circumstances had not allowed him to worry about these things.
However, he did not know if it would affect him later on…
“Hmm,” replied Lu Huaiyu and turned to leave.
His room was just next door, so it was just a few steps away.
Lu Huaiyu was about to swipe his card to open the door when he suddenly noticed that Edmund was looking at him.
With a slight start, he quickly turned around.
“Mr. Edmund, is there anything else?”
Edmund looked like he wanted to say something but was holding himself back. After a slight hesitation, he said, “It’s nothing. I’m just a little surprised that the two of you don’t want to stay in the same room.”
He was from Bai City and thought that since the two of them were in love, it would be a natural thing for them to stay together.
Lu Huaiyu raised his brows slightly.
“Mr. Edmund, in what way do you see that I don’t want to?”
Edmund was stunned.
He knew it!
Anyone could tell how much Lu Huaiyu liked her.
Lu Huaiyu gave a faint smile.
“But I care for her.
“Everything about her is more important than me.”
This included his thoughts, what he thought about, as well as himself.
Edmund quickly left, and Lu Huaiyu entered his room.
After locking the door, he casually placed his suitcase at the entrance and came to stand before the window.
The afternoon sun shone through the floor-to-ceiling window. Standing here, he could look down over most of Bai City.
He raised his hand and tugged at the collar of his shirt.
According to his biological clock, he should have already been asleep a few hours ago.
However, he had still been on the plane at that time, and being unable to fall asleep in such an environment, he had endured until now.
Countless fragments of images flashed in his mind, which gave him a faint headache again.
His fingers moved his fingers gently, as if the warmth of her soft cheeks still lingered there.
This made the air that seemed to be stuck between his chest and abdomen calm down a little.
He stood there for a while, then he turned around and went to the bathroom.
Shen Li woke up after only having one hour of sleep.
Since she had slept on the plane and had not slept much more this time, she simply got up and took her computer out of her suitcase.
She went to the table, pulled out a chair, sat down, and turned on her computer.
There was an email in her mailbox. It was from Shen Zhijin and concerned her thesis.
In fact, the completion of her thesis was so good that even someone as strict and serious as Shen Zhijin had only picked out a few minor issues.
Following his advice, she made the final revisions to the thesis before sending it back.
The email was immediately accepted and checked by Shen Zhijin.
Then, Shen Li’s phone rang and she saw that it was Shen Zhijin who was calling.
Shen Li answered the call.
“Tangtang, why are you still awake at this hour? Don’t you want to adjust your jet lag?”
Shen Zhijin asked.
He had already known the arrival time of Shen Li’s flight in Bai City. However, he had thought that she would be very busy, so he had not called her. He had wanted to wait until she had gotten some rest first.
“It’s okay. I slept on the plane for a while and rested a while after. I saw your email when I woke up so I decided to make the revisions to my thesis.”
Only then did Shen Zhijin feel slightly relieved.
“How’s Bai City?”
Shen Li smiled.
“It feels pretty good. But I might not have time to go to your place today, so I’ll have to wait a little first.”
Shen Zhijin knew that her showcase with G&S was about to start soon, so naturally, he would not rush her.
“That’s fine. Tangtang should settle her own matters first.”
Shen Li chatted with Shen Zhijin for a while. After confirming that he would be coming the day after tomorrow, she ended the call.
She clicked open her schedule, with the intention of freeing up some time for the day after tomorrow.
Soon, Shen Zhijin sent her a message saying that her thesis could be submitted.
Shen Li replied, “Okay.”.
Then, she tapped on the keyboard a few times and submitted her second thesis to the Universe.
A notification alert rang out from her phone, so she turned off her computer and saw that she had received a message from George.
He was asking her if she was awake yet. The rehearsal for the G&S showcase was about to start. He wanted to see if she wanted to go over to the venue to view it and see if there were any adjustments that needed to be made.
Shen Li thought for a moment and decided to go.
George was very happy and quickly replied, “Okay, I’ll come and pick you up!”
Shen Li sent a message to Lu Huaiyu to let him know that she would be going to watch the rehearsal, then she quickly packed up her things and left the room.
However, she did not go down immediately. Instead, she knocked on the door of Lu Huaiyu’s room that was next door.
No one answered.
