His One Love - Chapter 30
Shen Yi stood in the same place and lowered his eyes. It was as if he didn’t hear anything and his expression didn’t change. He silently poured a cup of hot water for Lu Wanwan and handed it to her, he pursed his lips and said: “Drink some water and then go to your room to rest, I will call you later.”
Just as Lu Wanwan was about to speak, Lu Zhouzhi, one step ahead of her, coldly snorted, “What do you mean rest ? Sister, tonight I have booked a club in advance for you, there are a lot of young handsome guys there ready for the taking, don’t you like to see them the most? I’ll take you there!”
After finishing these words, he even asked Shen Yi, in a demeaning manner, “Brother-in-law, you don’t mind, right?”
Shen Yi raised his eyes, looked towards Lu Wanwan and he smiled slightly at her. His voice was slightly cool as he said: “What, you want to go there ?”
Meeting his deep gaze made Lu Wanwan shiver from the bottom of her heart. Her back stiffened slightly as her lips turned white and her face, who already looked sickly, turned to an abnormal shade of red.
Her weak and vulnerable look made her appear quite pitiful.
Lu Zhouzhi had never seen his sister look so vulnerable, so he immediately thought it was because Shen Yi was scaring her, and he said angrily, “You usually bully my sister, don’t you? Shen Yi, I’m telling you, I’ve tolerated you long enough.”
“I knew you weren’t a good thing. What’s wrong with my sister looking at young, handsome men? Besides, it’s not like my sister has never seen one before.”
Lu Wanwan was breathing heavily, her brain was spinning and her body had little strength left. Her cheeks were burning red with anger at Lu Zhouzhi’s senseless words.
Shen Yi’s gaze was cold, he didn’t pay attention to Lu Zhouzhi, but slowly and properly asked Lu Wanwan: “Do you really want to go see handsome guys?”
Lu Wanwan opened her mouth, her throat felt like it was in fire, it was both hoarse and painful, but then her feet went soft and she almost fell to the ground.
Shen Yi picked her up by the waist. Hugging her, he probed her forehead with his palm, “You have a fever.”
Lu Wanwan, who fell into his arms, just felt that the hand he placed on her waist was exerting too much force.
As she raised her eyes to meet his gaze, she couldn’t help but flinch a little.
Shen Yi’s expression right this instant couldn’t be described as friendly at all, his lips were slightly crooked and his eyes had turned frosty.
He touched the woman’s cheek and asked lightly, “Wanwan hasn’t answered my question yet.”
Lu Wanwan, whose voice was quivering, whispered the words, “No, I don’t want to go.”
Shen Yi smiled lightly: ” My well-behaved Wanwan.”
When Lu Wanwan heard those familiar words, her heart became even more flustered. She felt helpless, like a poor little thing that was under his control, utterly unable to escape from his firm grip.
Lu Wanwan’s head felt foggy and her chest stuffy, and she even had trouble keeping her eyes open. She just felt like sleeping. She already figured out the reason why she was feverish. That was because it snowed yesterday and she couldn’t restrain herself and thus she ended up playing in the yard in the neighborhood for the whole afternoon.
Last night, her head already felt a little heavy, and today her fever totally flared up.
Lu Wanwan’s body was limp all-over and she was leaning against Shen Yi’s chest as if her bones had turned soft. Smelling his familiar fragrance, she actually had a vague feeling of security.
Maybe it was because she was sick, but Lu Wanwan didn’t act as overbearing as she usually did in front of Shen Yi, she obediently let the man help her take her shoes as well as her coat off, and her whole person huddled in the blankets, which she wrapped around herself tightly.
Shen Yi saw that she had wrapped herself like a dumpling and couldn’t help but laugh. He raised his hand to gently pull down the blanket a bit, but she wouldn’t comply no matter what, and she curled her lips and muttered something unclear.
The woman’s face, who was originally white, turned red because of the stuffiness, her snow-white neck was covered by her loose hair cascading down, her tone was childish as she ordered the man in a very natural manner: “Shen Yi, turn off the lights. It hurts my eyes.”
After saying these words, Lu Wanwan, feeling dizzy, fell asleep again.
Shen Yi listened to her words, turned off the lamp, and then stood quietly at the edge of the bed and watched her for a while. The faint moonlight illuminated her delicate face. He liked every part of her facial features.
After a long time, Shen Yi pulled open the door of the room and walked out.
Lu Wanwan’s father had been waiting for him in the living room for a long time, his heart feeling very apprehensive all along. He owned a few small companies, and could earn quite a lot of money, and if it was before, he indeed wouldn’t acknowledge this son-in-law, how precious was is daughter ! She was very wronged when she married him.
But just a month ago, Lu Wanwan’s father had the opportunity to attend a big banquet and watched with his own eyes as the Shen family, the most powerful family in the capital, announced in a low profile that Shen Yi was the second son of the Shen family, which had been lost before.
The son-in-law he once despised had become a tree he could never hope to climb on. Lu Wanwan’s father was in a complicated mood when he recalled his attitude towards Shen Yi over the past two years. He felt he had been somewhat harsh, and now he began to worry whether his son-in-law would hold a grudge against him.
