Chapter 937 - Last Year’s Wish Was Returned to Her Brother
“Goodbye, Grandpa Lu.”
Shen Li pressed the button to lower the window and waved goodbye to Old Master Lu.
The car slowly drove away.
“I thought I would be staying here for a long time today,” Shen Li said.
After all, she had not been here in a while. Looking at Old Master Lu’s personality, he would have definitely tried to keep her here longer.
But she had not expected–
“It takes a lot of energy to play chess,” Lu Huaiyu said.
Shen Li nodded.
“That’s true. Grandpa Lu’s health is more important.”
The car drove forward and soon entered a familiar road.
Shen Li looked outside and asked, “Second Brother, which movie theater are we going to?”
Lu Huaiyu smiled.
“You’ll know when we get there. Are you sleepy?”
Shen Li’s habit was to take a lunch break at noon. However, after lunch today, she had played chess with Old Master Lu.
She nodded honestly. “A little.”
Lu Huaiyu looked at her and asked in a low voice, “Would you like to sleep for a while?”
Shen Li nodded and leaned back, tilting her head and closing her eyes.
The afternoon sun in April was bright and warm, and the cold, cedar scent from his body lingered at the tip of her nose.
Shen Li had only intended on closing her eyes and resting for a while, but gradually, she felt sleepy and fell into a deep sleep.
The car turned a corner, and as a result of inertia, her body fell to the side.
A hand firmly held onto her shoulder.
Lu Huaiyu raised his hand and silently took her into his arms. As if he was afraid of waking her up, he moved very gently.
Then, he held her head and placed it against his shoulder, holding her with one hand to prevent her from falling forward.
Fang Qingyun looked at the rearview mirror and saw Lu Huaiyu lowering his eyelids slightly as he looked intently at the young girl in his arms.
His movements were careful and meticulous. He was extremely gentle and considerate.
If any others saw this scene, they would be shocked. The second master of the Lu family, who had always been aloof and difficult to tame, actually had such a side to him.
It was really– He was so protective of what he hand in his arms.
In his heart, he gave a big sigh but he also could not help but laugh.
“Ah Li, Ah Li? Wake up, we’re here.”
Lu Huaiyu gently pinched her face.
Shen Li slowly opened her eyes. Her peach blossom eyes still carried a hint of confusion and tiredness from having just woken up.
She turned her head to look out of the car window and suddenly paused.
A few seconds later, she gradually woke up.
“… Rongyue Mansion? To watch a movie?”
Why did it seem like… something was not right?
The next moment, she heard Lu Huaiyu’s voice.
“Let’s watch it at home.”
Shen Li slowly turned her head.
Lu Huaiyu stroked her hair.
Five minutes later, Shen Li and Lu Huaiyu entered the door together.
She slowly changed her shoes.
Watching a movie… so they had come back here to watch?
Then why had he made it sound so formal?
Lu Huaiyu came over to hold her hand.
Shen Li then remembered something and grabbed her satchel.
“Oh right, Second Brother’s birthday present.”
As she spoke, she took out a simple and exquisite gift box from her bag.
Lu Huaiyu’s gaze fell on it and he raised his eyebrows slightly.
“Where’s my birthday cake?”
Shen Li blinked.
“I thought Grandpa Lu and the others would prepare it…”
After all, it was the Lu family’s birthday celebration.
“Besides, didn’t Aunt Chun Lan say that Second Brother doesn’t like these things?”
Lu Huaiyu stared at her for a while, then he gave her a half-smile.
“From you, it’s different. Also– I had it all last year, but now that I’ve become a boyfriend, won’t I have it anymore?”
Shen Li said, “… Then shall I make one now?”
Lu Huaiyu’s place was always well stocked with ingredients as well as baking tools, so it would not take much effort to make a small cake.
Lu Huaiyu pulled her over to his side and looked down at her. He could not help but smile and kiss her between her eyebrows, coaxing her in a low voice, “Why are you so obedient?”
Just because he said he wanted it, she was willing to give it to him.
Shen Li blinked her eyes lightly. Her thick and curly eyelashes fluttered. First, it seemed like a fluttering butterfly that eventually flew into her heart.
Lu Huaiyu held her hand and led her inside.
“There’s no rush. You can do it later.”
The two of them came to the video and music room.
Shen Li chose a classic foreign film.
The sunshade curtains were slowly drawn. The entire room was dark, leaving only the flickering light of the screen in front of them.
Lu Huaiyu came over to her side and sat down.
The gentle and melodious music sounded.
It was as if the entire world had been blocked out, leaving only the two of them in a quiet and peaceful atmosphere.
Time passed slowly.
At a certain moment, Shen Li looked sideways at the man sitting next to her.
In the darkness, the fluorescent light fell on his face. It was bright and dark, but it still could not hide the perfectly smooth lines of his side profile.
As if sensing her gaze, he also looked over and asked with a smile,”Why aren’t you watching the movie?”
Shen Li came closer and poked his face, whispering.
“You look better than the movie.”
Lu Huaiyu’s pitch-black eyes narrowed slightly.
“Are you really not going to watch?”
Shen Li sensed the danger and immediately retreated sensibly.
“I want to watch.”
Lu Huaiyu grabbed her waist and pulled her into his arms.
Her back immediately pressed against his firm and flat chest. The scorching heat almost passed through the thin cloth and onto her body.
At the same time, he wrapped his arms around her incredibly slender waist.
“Alright, let’s see.”
Shen Li tried to break free, but she was quickly pushed back into his arms.
After struggling back and forth twice, she finally became obedient and nestled in his arms.
However, his body was so hot that she could even feel his strong heartbeat.
His presence was also too strong. That invisible aura forcefully overtook every inch of space around her.
So, for the entire second half of the movie, she barely noticed what was playing.
Only his breathing, his heartbeat, and his scent seemed to fill the air.
It was not until the end of the movie played that Lu Huaiyu moved closer to her ear and asked, “Was it good?”
Shen Li nodded.
Lu Huaiyu chuckled.
Shen Li instantly felt that he could see through all her thoughts.
She pointed in front of her.
“Second Brother, you haven’t seen the gift yet.”
Lu Huaiyu took the remote control and the curtains automatically opened.
It was already evening. The horizon was covered with large patches of red and orange clouds, and even the windows seemed to be covered with a layer of warm light.
He picked up the gift box from the coffee table.
A pair of sapphire cufflinks lay quietly in the box.
She suddenly tugged at his sleeve gently.
He looked up.
At this moment, her back was against the light, and a faint crimson color washed over her face. It was even more breathtaking than the scenery outside the window.
The next moment, she put a hand on his shoulder, leaned in, and kissed the corner of his lips.
There seemed to be a glimmer in her eyes that made even the tip of one’s heart sway slightly.
The sweet and husky voice fell between his lips.
“I want to return last year’s wish to my brother.”
