She could not help but drink another mouthful of the liquor. As she licked her mouth with the tip of her tongue, she came to understand why so many people loved cocktails. They tasted good!
Although the alcohol content was low, her cheeks still flushed from the few mouthfuls she drank.
Li Chengze was really stunned by her beauty.
What he did not know was that someone was watching his every move like a hawk.
Observing the man's proceeding in his peripheral view, Gu Xingze's eyes darkened further. He held his wine glass lazily and sipped along its rim as he became engrossed in his thoughts.
Before long, it was one in the morning.
Influenced by the alcohol in their systems, these rich boys in the booth tried to make small talks with the superstar.
Amid the loud music and smoggy air, he was assailed by their pretentious smiles and phony courtesies.
Who would not want to get into the good books of the Gu family?
There might be no such chance in the future. Since this well-known figure was sitting right before them, who would not be tempted to establish good rapport with him?
They were fearful at first but managed to pluck up their courage after drinking the night away.
The star, who was sitting expressionlessly on the couch, perceived their sycophantic displays to be rather sickening and hideous.
His eyes had lost their tinge of jest by then. He closed his orbs, which now glinted darkly, as he smiled mockingly.
He was not trying to be standoffish here. It was just that he saw no point in befriending these rich young masters and mistresses.
These boys did not know how to appreciate their resources and status. They had no interest in learning lifesaving skills. Instead, they got into all kinds of vices and splurged on every type of materialistic gain using their families' wealth.
If these folks were to step into showbiz, they would be taken as baits or be manipulated as pawns.
A wrong move would spell doom for them. Their fortune, no matter how copious it was, could be emptied overnight.
He lifted his wrist, drank the Hennessy at one go, and stood up to leave. Walking up to a corner where the little thing was curled up, he pulled her up by the arm and rapped his knuckles on her head lightly. "Let's go!"
Yun Shishi opened her sleepy eyes and, upon seeing him, revealed a naïve smile. She had drunk a little alcohol and then found a corner to lay down earlier.
Her crystal laughter chimed in his ears. He knitted his brows as he almost lost himself in it.
In her drunken state and with her guard down, her pure aura was gone. Now, she appeared alluring and captivating.
She stood up unsteadily. Her legs wobbled just then, and she tumbled headfirst into his arms.
"Urgh…" She groaned as she rubbed her nose where she hurt herself!
Is she drunk?
The man glared sharply at Li Chengze from the corner of his eye. The latter jumped at the former's hostile look. It was simply terrifying!
"Master Gu, I didn't make her drunk! She just had a mouthful of that low-alcohol cocktail. It seems she has poor alcohol tolerance!" he hastily explained.
Gu Xingze could not be bothered to argue with him.
Ye Minglan promptly stood up and asked with discontent, "Master Gu, are you leaving now?"
