Chapter 1055: I Seem to Know Him
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
This speculation was so shocking that her first reaction was to reject it.
Lu Huaiyu and Saint–
How was this possible?!
Her mind was thrust into momentary confusion, as if countless images were flashing before her eyes, but were difficult to capture.
Saint had cheated her in Leland, and she had not paid off her debt in full yet.
Saint knew that she had thrown down the gauntlet with 10 million and had accepted the challenge in the end.
Saint had only participated in one round of betting, and with the result of winning all the positions, he was once again one step ahead of her.
The only impression she had of Saint was nothing but arrogance.
All of this seemed to have nothing to do with this elegant and noble man in front of her.
Lu Huaiyu and the sky-high price he had paid to buy the “Night of the Milky Way” watch for her.
Lu Huaiyu had collected several of her paintings.
Lu Huaiyu would coax her and let her have her way. For so long, he was not even willing to say anything harsh.
He had been by her side from the age of seventeen until now.
This man had given her all the little gentleness and patience he had.
How… could it be?!
As she was thinking, she suddenly felt a warm and powerful force coming from above her head.
Lu Huaiyu gently caressed her hair and asked with a soft smile, “Why are you looking at me like that?”
The young girl’s reaction was indeed a little strange.
Shen Li came back to her senses and focused her gaze.
She suppressed the surging emotions in her heart and looked away.
“Nothing, I was just thinking about how… Second Brother was capable of guessing even the third place. He is indeed… very impressive.”
Lu Huaiyu sensed Shen Zhijin’s gaze and withdrew his hand. He smiled and said,”It was just a lucky guess.”
His tone was always lazy and casual, as if he did not take this bet very seriously.
Gu Siyang was speechless.
“… Second Master Lu, can you not say such words in front of us next time?”
Did he still think that their injuries were not serious enough? Did he think that their hearts were not feeling enough pain yet?
How could a lucky guess be so accurate? How could a person who had spent so much time meticulously studying the statistics and information yet had still lost everything continue to survive?
Shen Li’s fingers curled as she looked at him again.
“Then Second Brother should have earned a lot this time, right? Didn’t Second Brother win all the previous rounds?”
Her clear, jet-black peach blossom eyes seemed to be filled with curiosity.
Lu Huaiyu laughed and handed his phone over.
“It’s just pocket money. I’ll buy you some candy later.”
Shen Li moved closer to him, and the contents of his phone page came into view.
Those were the transaction records of his participation in the horse race this time. Every transaction was clear.
Every transaction was a profit. Ultimately, it was indeed an astonishing figure.
However, because SS-rank members had a ceiling on the amount of a single transaction, it was still quite lacking compared to Saint.
She looked at it and suddenly said, “It’s indeed a pity that Second Brother didn’t advance to SSS-level.”
Lu Huaiyu’s brows raised slightly.
“Does it look like I earned too little?”
Shen Li shook her head and looked away from the phone screen.
Of course, she would not be able to tell anything from looking at this. After all, she herself had two accounts of her own.
As for Lu Huaiyu…
Gu Tinglan tilted his head and looked over.
“The last match has ended. We should go back. There’s still a banquet tonight–”
Saying this, he paused and looked at Shen Li.
After a moment of silence, he enunciated each word clearly,”Tonight, your drinks will be prepared separately.”
Right now, the person who was most afraid of Shen Li drinking was not Shen Li, but him.
Of course, Lu Huaiyu was probably feeling the same as him.
Shen Li was still thinking about Saint, but when she heard Gu Tinglan’s words, she finally calmed down and nodded consciously.
Gu Tinglan still did not dare to relax completely.
In any case, he had to keep an eye on her tonight.
Shen Zhijin was the first to stand up.
“Tangtang, let’s go.”

Shen Li responded and came to Shen Zhijin’s side.
After taking a few steps, she could not help but turn back to look.
Lu Huaiyu was one step behind her, and Gu Siyang was following by his side, still eager to learn from him.
Although the horse races had ended, Gu Siyang felt that he should really learn more from Second Master Lu.
The people around them were noisy, but Lu Huaiyu and his body seemed to be shrouded in an invisible aura, which seemed to make this hot day appear slightly cooler.
He tilted his head slightly, and his black hair fell over his forehead. The lines between his eyebrows and the bridge of his nose were perfect, and his jawline was clean and neat.
The breeze stirred his black shirt, and the two buttons at the collar were unbuttoned, revealing his straight collarbones slightly.
He looked extremely cold, noble, and abstinent.
Shen Li withdrew her gaze.
Lu Huaiyu seemed to sense something so he looked up and saw that the young girl was following Shen Zhijin. She nodded as Shen Zhijin talked to her.
The tips of his brows raised slightly. He had a vague feeling that the young girl seemed to be…
Just as he was thinking, his phone vibrated.
He took it out and discovered that Cheng Xiyue had sent him some news.
He clearly already knew the situation here.
[ Lu Er, you’re still the greatest. Really, if I were Gambler, I would remember you for two lifetimes. ]
Lu Huaiyu only swept his eyes over the message. Very quickly, he held his breath and put away his phone.
There was still some time before the evening reception, so Shen Li went back to the Gu family home first.
She went into her bedroom and locked the door. Then, she pulled out a chair and sat down in front of the table.
She maintained this position for a long time.
She felt as if she had been thinking a lot, but also seemed to have thought of nothing. Her mind was in chaos. When she wanted to carefully sort her thoughts out, her brain seemed to be empty.
That was until Wen Xiao’s call broke the silence in the room.
Shen Li answered it.
Wen Xiao had called mainly to congratulate her, but when he heard the way she replied, he somehow felt that something was not right.
“What’s wrong? With this tone of voice, did you lose the bet?”
That should not be it. She had always been very good in this aspect.
Hadn’t she guessed correctly the previous times?
Shen Li lowered her eyes.
“No? Then you are–” Wen Xiao paused and suddenly realized something.
Tsk, he had almost forgotten someone.
He paused and asked tentatively, “Was Saint here?”
Shen Li’s answer still did not reveal her emotions.
However, her reaction was enough to let Wen Xiao understand one thing.
“… Did you lose again?”
You… lost… again.
Those four words had come clearly through the receiver.
Shen Li did not say anything.
Wen Xiao regretted it the moment he said those words. This question was too hurtful.
This little ancestor was already angry enough after losing, and now, she had even lost a second time. He really did not know what the situation was like now.
“That… Ah Li, I didn’t mean that…”
“I bet on a winning streak, but he bet on the position.”
Shen Li explained calmly.
Just those few words were enough to explain everything.
Wen Xiao reacted for a while and held his breath.
Saint was deliberately suppressing her with his win!
What could be more infuriating than you thinking that you were going to win, but in the end, you were completely crushed and had completely lost?!
But Wen Xiao soon realized that something was wrong.
In this situation, her reaction… did not seem right.
“Ah Li, actually, winning or losing isn’t that important. You’re just a little lacking in his tone–”
Shen Li suddenly spoke and interrupted him.
“I think I know him.”
