Inside Ninth Mansion…
After the group arrived, because it was Duan Linbai’s gathering, he was naturally in charge of heating up the atmosphere. But since Xu Jiamu was here today, he didn’t know how to arrange the seats, so she sat beside him.
They naturally clinked glasses and drank.
“Do you want some?” Tang Jingci tilted her head and asked Xu Jiamu.
“I’m not very good at drinking.” Xu Jiamu seemed to be in a dilemma, but everyone was drinking a little, so she could only pick up her wine glass and pour in fruit wine with very low alcohol content.
After everyone clinked glasses, Xu Jiamu only took a small sip. Three to four minutes later, she warmed up to everyone, and her face was flushed red from the wine.
“Are you alright?” Duan Linbai asked softly, not expecting her to drink so much.
Because there was music in the private room, if they wanted to talk, they could only get close.
Xu Jiamu’s face seemed to be dyed with blood. She was bright and beautiful, and even her breath was hot and scorching. It blew warmly on his face.
“I’m fine. This is how I drink…”
Duan Linbai nodded. His gaze landed on her red lips. When the heat came, he coughed twice and looked away.
What’s wrong with this wine today? Why is my face heating up?
He had only taken a few sips, but his face was already red, and he was about to die.
As the host of the gathering, Duan Linbai naturally couldn’t escape the fate of drinking alcohol with everyone. His alcohol tolerance was average, so he didn’t drink much, but he was already a little drunk.
After he drank too much, it was easy for him to talk too much and go crazy. The few of them thought about it and called his assistant over to send him home while Duan Linbai went to the restroom.
The assistant coaxed and deceived him before helping him out.
Seeing him leave, Xu Jiamu hesitated for a moment before saying, “I should go too. I still have something to do at school tomorrow, so I can’t stay long.”
“Then, I’ll get someone to send you,” Fu Chen said.
“No need. I rode my scooter here.” Xu Jiamu immediately declined. After bidding farewell to everyone, she took her coat and left the private room.
At this moment, the effects of the alcohol had long passed, and her expression was normal. She looked no different from ordinary people. When she walked out of the bar, the cold air hit her face, and her entire body shivered. She was extremely sober.
When she walked to the place where she parked her electric scooter, she was dumbfounded.
This idiot Duan Linbai was actually sitting on her scooter and shaking his legs. The assistant beside him wished he could cover his face and pretend not to know him.
“Miss Xu, I’m sorry. Our little boss drank too much. He…” The assistant coughed twice.
“I’ll persuade him to come down immediately.” The assistant braced himself. “Little Boss, come down. We should go back.
“It’s so cold outside. Don’t freeze.
“Besides, Miss Xu is here. She wants to ride her scooter back.”
“Get lost. I want to wait for her. Not only did this blasted woman ignore me, but she even threatened me. I’m staying here and not leaving.”
The assistant was speechless.
At this point, Duan Linbai seemed to get into a fight with the electric scooter and wanted to drive it back.
Seeing him like this, Xu Jiamu felt a little helpless. “You want to take my scooter?”
“Sit. It’s windy…” Duan Linbai gestured with his hands. “It’s f*cking exciting.”
Xu Jiamu was speechless.?This person is an idiot.
“Can you sit properly and guarantee not to fall?”
“Then, I’ll send you home.”
Duan Linbai refused to get off of the scooter no matter what. His assistant had time to waste with him, but Xu Jiamu didn’t.
He seemed to think for a moment and silently retreated to the back.
“Can you really sit properly?” Xu Jiamu was still a little worried. What if he suddenly went crazy and fell down halfway?
With his personality, he might cling to me.
“Yes,” a certain someone said very certainly.
His appearance reminded Xu Jiamu of a primary school student who had promised his teacher to complete his homework. He looked very obedient, and she couldn’t help laughing out loud. “Then get off and sit properly.”
Duan Linbai stared at the corners of her lips and felt his heart pounding.
I drank too much today…
Why do I feel like I’m about to have a heart attack?
Xu Jiamu got onto the scooter first, and Duan Linbai slowly sat at the back. His limbs were long, so he inevitably felt a little constrained.
The assistant was dumbfounded.?It’s such a cold day, yet you refuse to sit in a car and insist on sitting behind on a small electric scooter to catch the cold wind? What’s wrong with you?
After all, the scooter wasn’t big, and it belonged to a woman. Although it was freezing cold and everyone was wearing a lot of clothes, it was inevitable that they would rub against each other. He stared at the back of the woman in front.
