Chapter 852 - I Take My Sister
He tilted his head slightly.
“Gu Tinglan was looking for me?”
Shen Li was looking at the menu, so she did not raise her head. She simply replied, “Yes.”
Lu Huaiyu walked to the side table and picked up his phone. He found that he had indeed received three missed calls from Gu Tinglan and a few unread messages.
[ Lu Er, how are you doing? ]
[ You should have gotten off the plane by now, right? Please reply. ]
[ Lu Huaiyu? ]
Under normal circumstances, if he did not answer his first call, Gu Tinglan would at most call him just one more time. He would not call him a third time.
This was obviously because of his condition.
Lu Huaiyu’s hands slowly tightened. He half turned around and looked at Shen Li.
She was flipping through the menu as the warm orange light fell upon her face and body, casting an aura around her. Even the fine hair on her cheeks could be seen. She looked obedient and peaceful.
Lu Huaiyu’s thin lips moved slightly, but he did not say anything.
When had she come here? And how had she come to lie next to him? He really did not have any memory of it.
As if sensing his gaze, Shen Li looked up, her peach-blossom-shaped eyes dark and clear.
“Second Brother? What’s wrong?”
Lu Huaiyu paused for a moment, then shook his head with a faint smile.
“Nothing. I’m just going to take a shower.”
He had taken a shower before he had gone to bed, but after his restless sleep, he had started to sweat again.
Shen Li replied, then looked down at the menu again. She picked up the phone and prepared to make her order.
Lu Huaiyu replied to Gu Tinglan’s message before putting the phone aside and entering the bathroom.
The sound of water could then be heard.
After Shen Li had finished making her order, she hung up the phone and looked in the direction of the bathroom.
What… had he wanted to say to her just now?
She lowered her head again and looked at the phone, pursing her lips slightly.
She was almost certain that Lu Huaiyu truly had not remembered the incident that had happened when she had entered his room.
When she thought about it carefully, he probably did not remember kissing the back of her hand that time at Yunding Fenghua either.
Therefore, he did not show any unusual behavior since then. It was only when this matter had been mentioned in Hong Kong City that he had that kind of reaction.
Was Gu Tinglan’s phone call related to this?
Surely he… knew about Lu Huaiyu’s situation, right?
If she went to ask Gu Tinglan, he probably would tell her the truth.
Lu Huaiyu had not spoken just now.
Thinking of this, Shen Li put down her phone.
Half an hour later, the hotel delivered food, and the two of them had dinner together.
After eating, Shen Li curled up on the sofa and played with her phone as Lu Huaiyu turned on his computer to deal with the work that he had accumulated during the day.
He was very efficient and quickly turned off his computer before coming to Shen Li’s side.
“What are you looking at?”
Shen Li shook her phone.
“I’m just browsing.”
Lu Huaiyu raised his eyebrows.
“It looks like your rehearsal went very well.”
This time, her showcase was garnering the attention of a large number of people.
If it were anyone else, they probably would not be able to fall asleep that night. However, Shen Li looked really relaxed and did not seem to be nervous at all.
Shen Li lay her head on his lap and raised her phone again.
“It was not bad.”
Her tone of voice was also very casual. It did not sound as if she had been preparing for the Bai City Fashion Week’s opening showcase at all.
Lu Huaiyu raised his eyebrows.
“In the past, when I asked you how you did in your exams, you also said the same thing.”
This phrase, “Not bad”, could not be judged with common sense.
Shen Li’s finger tapped on the screen and nodded.
“Is that so? Oh, right, I met Mr. Ronai at the show today.”
“The artist you like very much?”
“Yes. He seems to like my designs.”
The corner of Lu Huaiyu’s lips curved slightly.
“Then has he seen your paintings?”
Shen Li paused her movements. Within a short time, her head had been blown off by another player in the game she was playing.
She glanced at the screen.
“I don’t think so. Why would Second Brother ask that?”
Lu Huaiyu scooped her up and wrapped his arms around her. Then, he took his phone out and logged into the same game.
Shen Li simply let him be.
Lu Huayu asked, “Who hit you just now? This ZFBSCG?”
Lu Huaiyu replied.
Very quickly, he raised his gun and aimed–
The opponent’s head had instantly been blown up by him.
Just then, a person on the screen who had been watching from the sidelines spoke first.
[ This head was originally mine! Who took my sister out? ]
Shen Li was silent.
Lu Huaiyu raised his brows slightly.
Shen Li immediately explained, “This is Ding Yu.”
‘Ah, it’s her roommate.’
He switched on the microphone, and a low and languid voice rang out.
“I did. Do you have any objections?”
Ding Yu, who was opposite him, was instantly shocked.
At the same time, another voice rang out.
This voice was familiar.
Lu Huaiyu stared at the ID and slowly said, “Zhou Fei? Is this your alternate account?”
The other side immediately fell silent.
Lu Huaiyu paused for a moment and said, “What does this ID mean?”
Zhou Fei immediately said, “Nothing much! It’s just an alternate account to practice–”
“Zhou Fei is not a noob.”
Ding Yu spoke frankly as she gave the answer.
Lu Huaiyu fell silent for a moment.
Shen Li was silent as well.
After a long while, Lu Huaiyu said in a lazy voice, “Oh, I see.”
Zhou Fei hurriedly said, “I suddenly remembered that I have something else that I need to do. I’ll just take my leave first!”
After saying that, he quickly disappeared.
Seeing Lu Huaiyu and Shen Li’s arrival, Ding Yu allowed the two of them to form a team.
“Senior Lu, your sister, you lead!”
Then, she quickly disappeared.
Shen Li was speechless.
She had only been playing a game…
Lu Huaiyu did not seem bothered about this matter and returned to the topic from before.
“It’s nothing. I just feel that the person who likes your designs should also like your paintings.”
