The others could only sigh in regret at Li Chengze's intimidation!
Since the Li family was considered to be rather influential, they held a bit of deference for this man! Naturally, they had to drop out of the competition to maintain a good rapport with him.
Returning his attention on to Yun Shishi, he realized that she had not budged even a bit. He proceeded to serve her a glass of red wine as he requested with a pleasant smile, "Why aren't you drinking when you come to a bar?"
Gazing at the wine-filled glass, she swung her head back and forth in reluctance. "I really can't drink!"
Putting aside this glass of wine, even a sip of alcohol was no good for her!
Her alcohol tolerance was extraordinarily low; she was taught the hard way of this before.
Back during Huanyu's annual gala, she unwillingly gulped a few mouthfuls of red wine and was subsequently knocked out.
Putting on an act of disappointment, he sighed. "Shishi, aren't you going to give me face?"
She asserted her stance and politely declined his offer.
The man was regrettably unaware of her low alcohol tolerance; conversely, he thought that she was purposefully not showing him respect in front of so many others.
Everyone broke into laughter. "This is the first time I've seen Chengze being rejected by a woman. She clearly doesn't want to give you face!"
Enraged by their provocation, he grabbed a hold of her shoulder and forcefully dragged her into his embrace to prevent her from resisting. He shoved the rim of the glass of wine to her lips and demanded, "Drink, or else you'll be putting me in a tight spot!"
"I really can't drink!" Once again, she insisted on her stance.
This man was clearly trying to force her to drink!
Absolute disgust was displayed on her face. Vigorously struggling out of his grasp, this caused the glass to fall to the ground and shatter.
In an instant, the entire venue descended into silence.
Everyone exchanged glances in consternation.
Bearing witness to her violent response, he flew into a rage out of sheer embarrassment. "Do you need to give such a big reaction?!"
Getting a little displeased at him, she tightly pursed her lips; she was rather unwilling to pay attention to him now.
Her defiance further agitated him.
When he spied her brows coming into a distressing knit and her face displaying the telltale sign of detest, he became a little annoyed.
This woman was clearly not interested in him!
He fleetingly touched her, yet she readily avoided him like the plague; it was as if his touch were poison to her!
Why could other men touch her? Why did she not resist violently when Gu Xingze put his hand around her shoulders? Why was he not allowed to have a drink with her?!
Everyone burst into another round of laughter at this sight.
With Gu Xingze's absence, their words grew unscrupulous.
"So Gu Xingze has his eye on this woman?"
"As Gu Xingze's female partner, she's off limits. Chengze, it's always first come, first served. Plus, she doesn't seem to welcome your affection."
Yun Shishi sheepishly studied their licentious and sinful faces, and her heart slightly shuddered with revulsion.
When the superstar was around, they treated her with modesty.
When he was away for a while, they started speaking discourteously; was this their true faces?
Her expression hardened and she tried to explain herself. "Xingze and I are just friends!"
"You're called Yun Shishi, right?"
Li Chengze clutched her arm with a menacing and hideous look. "How much to bed you for a night? I like my price to be stated clearly. It's just money; I can give you the amount you want. State your price!"
She was taken aback at his bold and outrageous request. With her eyes widening, she looked at him in disbelief.
