Xingze… What a wonderful-sounding name!
Qin Zhou's words were brought to her mind; very few people seemed to be experienced enough to call him by his first name. He permitted her to do so, though. Did that mean that he considered her as a friend?
Thinking of this, she suppressed her glee by pursing her lips.
Western cuisines were prepared in a similar fashion, yet steak was the most sought-after specialty in Secret·Love for its unique flavor and delectableness.
He decided on some snacks and a medium rare filet mignon with peppercorn sauce. Yun Shishi, conversely, was at a loss!
Flipping through the menu, her eyes were filled with a variety of dishes, including mouth-watering steaks and pastas, as well as visually appetizing snacks, fine desserts, and ice creams. Everything was truly bedazzling to the eye.
She had never ordered western food on her own before. Thus, without anyone guiding her, she did not know what to choose at all. This looked good, and so did the other. She was in a dilemma!
Her stomach was already growling from hunger. To satisfy her greed, she wanted to select a portion of everything, yet she was worried that she could not finish them all, and the food would go to waste. Her eyes then desperately flew toward him for help.
He appeared not to notice her imploring gaze, however. Right now, his attention was occupied with wiping the utensils using a napkin he had retrieved.
Feeling defeated, she dropped her head and agonizingly pouted her lips. She skimmed through the menu again before lifting her gaze and beaming. "I'll have the same as him!"
She might not know exactly what his order was, but with his palate, it should be delicious! She did trust his preferences.
The waiter bobbed his head in understanding and respectfully asked for clarification. "May I know if you want your filet mignon to have peppercorn sauce and be medium rare?"
She affirmed her order with a dip of her head. The waiter then stored the menus away and took his leave with a smile.
Her lips curled up in satisfaction. She turned around to watch the man wipe his utensils with a napkin a second time. For some reason, her eyes were riveted to his fair and slender fingers.
His hands were so beautiful they looked better than woman's.
His hands' joints were distinct and his fingers were thin and long. A dazzling ring decorated his pinky.
Though the beautiful hands' owner was holding a fork and a knife now, they were still a beautiful sight to behold.
She suddenly recalled Qin Zhou mentioning that this man was extremely squeamish about cleanliness. Puckering her lips, she copied his action and seriously wiped clean her utensils with a napkin, too.
"Oh, it's Xingze!"
A saccharine voice rang out and interrupted the ongoing comfortable silence.
She lifted her gaze, looking perplexed. A woman in a glamorous black dress and expensive makeup stood at the side of the booth.
Besides the woman stood another who was dressed just as beautifully, and sophisticated, as her.
The two, who paired off for a meal, walked past their booth and unexpectedly saw Gu Xingze!
He rarely visited a restaurant like this for a meal, so the woman was very surprised. Still, as stunned as the woman was… She then cast her sight onto Yun Shishi and was somewhat in doubt. Who was this gal sitting across him?
Dressed innocently like a student, she appeared prim and proper. However, unlike a young mistress from a rich family, she seemed to be just an ordinary citizen. Was she a newbie actress?
The woman could not help being startled. She seldom saw him with a girl like this.
