Chapter 99 - Drink Milk and Grow Taller

Chapter 99: Drink Milk and Grow Taller

Ning Li knew she would eventually have to face this! To her surprise, she realized Lu Huaiyu was a calculative person.

She was afraid to trouble him, hence the excuse. She did not expect him to use it against her and put her in such an awkward situation.

The living room was deathly silent.

Finally, Ning Li gave up and said, “I’m sorry.”

Lu Huaiyu raised a brow. “Hmm?”

“I shouldn’t have lied to you,” she said in a muffled voice. She knew that out of everything that happened today, Lu Huaiyu was extremely displeased with the fact that she had lied to him.

“I won’t do it again.”

“Promise?”

“Promise.”

Ning Li put her hand out and tried to make a vow, but she realized that her sleeve was too long. It swallowed her hand whole, so all she could push out was a tiny knuckle.

Exasperated, she rolled her sleeve up and revealed two tiny but fair fingers. “I swear.”

Lu Huaiyu tilted his head as he watched her struggle with her oversized pajamas. Finding it amusing, he chuckled out loud. “If it’s that troublesome for you to make a promise, just forget it.”

Ning Li was already embarrassed, and his words put her in an even more awkward position. “Hey, it’s not my fault. It’s your oversized pajamas.”

Lu Huaiyu propped his head on his palm and smiled wider. He simply nodded lazily to brush her off. “Yeah, it’s my fault.”

Ning Li’s face flushed.

She was sitting on his couch, wrapped in his throw and wearing his pajamas, but she claimed that it was his fault because the pajamas were too big. Even she herself realized that she was being unreasonable.

“You don’t need to swear on it.”

Lu Huaiyu laughed at her for quite a while before he ultimately showed her mercy and spared her, mostly because he enjoyed her bashful expression.

“You said it.” Ning Li did not swear on it as her heart raced and she unconsciously looked at him.

The two of them locked eyes.

His eyes remained curved because of the amusement. The way he looked at her felt intense. His eyes were as deep as whirlpools with the deadliest seduction. Even though it was obviously dangerous, one would fall unconsciously and uncontrollably closer and deeper.

She looked away nervously while her tiny hand under the blanket was placed on her chest.

Time felt extremely slow.

The topic of their conversation varied from heaven to earth.

Lu Huaiyu was a perfect conversation partner. He had knowledge in every single aspect, and as long as he willed it, he could start any conversation fluently. His rich voice was pleasant to the ears, and it carried a casual but notable presence. His voice somehow sounded calming in the quiet night.

Eventually, Ning Li fell asleep without realizing it. She had a good sleep without any dreams.

The sky outside slowly turned bright.

Lu Huaiyu sat opposite her. She leaned on the couch and buried herself in the throw, her dark hair seeming rather messy. Half her face was hidden behind the throw. Her eyes were closed, and her curly eyelashes resembled two beautiful fans fanning out.

She seemed quiet and obedient.

He stared at her for a long time with his gaze appearing inconceivably warm and caring.

“She’s really a little girl who’s afraid of the dark.”

It was the fragrance of cooked rice that woke Ning Li up.

She opened her blurry eyes, and the first thing she saw was an empty seat in front of her. She rubbed her eyes.

“Are you up already?” Lu Huaiyu’s voice came from behind.

Ning Li turned around.

The first floor of the mansion had an open-concept kitchen. The man was standing behind the kitchen island in fresh clothes.

“Go wash up and then come down for breakfast.”

Ning Li had a glance at the table and saw a spread on it. The fragrance that she smelled was from the rice on top of the table.

“Second Brother, do you know how to cook?” She thought that she knew the man well, but his culinary prowess surprised her.

“A little.”

Lu Huaiyu came from a perfect background, but he was not a good-for-nothing playboy. He knew all the basic skills that a normal person should have though he did not have the chance to show them off.

“Oh.” Ning Li then went off to wash her face.

A while later, she came back in her school uniform. “Second Brother, your clothes—”

“Sit.” Lu Huaiyu did not care about the clothes. “Have a taste.”

Ning Li sat down and had a good look at the dishes. There were sandwiches, fresh salads, and century egg porridge.

The man barely had meals at his own house, so the ingredients available to him in his refrigerator were limited.

Ning Li took a bite of the sandwich and the taste made her widen her eyes in shock. “It’s so delicious!”

She was not merely being courteous; it was a true compliment of his cooking.

Lu Huaiyu sat down opposite her and poured her a glass of milk. “Have more if you like it.”

Ning Li stared at the glass of milk. She actually disliked the taste of the white beverage.

“Second Brother, can I not…?”

Lu Huaisu said succinctly, “Drinking milk will make you grow taller.”

The girl was left speechless. She thought she heard it wrongly. She was 168 cm tall and was by no means short.

“I think my height isn’t that bad,” Ning Li responded softly.

Lu Huaiyu smiled. “You said the pajamas were too big last night.”

Utter shock with a hint of embarrassment overtook her. She had to force the words out of her throat. “That’s because they were yours…”

It was reasonable that she could not fit in his pajamas.

Lu Huaiyu profoundly nodded. “You’re right.”

He should start to buy clothes in her size and keep them in the house.

Speaking of clothes, Ning Li asked, “Oh, right, I’ll take your pajamas back to clean and return them to you later.”

She had been giving him trouble for almost a day and a night. She could also return the book together with the pajamas later.

Lu Huaiyu’s house was actually equipped with a washing machine and a dryer. He even had a cleaner who came every week to clean the place.

Nonetheless, he nodded. “Okay.”
