The moment she asked that question, several drunks started flapping their jaws and wagging their tongues. "Master Gu, you're already leaving? We're still not done yet!"
"That's right! Let's do karaoke later, okay? We'd love to hear you sing!"
One of them reached out and caught hold of his shoulder. His giggles hinted to something suggestive. "Master Gu, are you planning to go home for some pleasurable time?!"
His eyes laid on the woman in his arms; in that instant, the meaning of his words was delivered clearly.
Discreetly, Ye Minglan was angered by his joke!
This thing that doesn't know its place dares to tease Gu Xingze?!
In his intoxication, the man's action became bolder. He amiably patted the superstar on his shoulder and continued with his teasing. "This woman doesn't deserve so much of your effort, Master Gu! If you want, I can send some others your way – I'm sure you'll like them more!"
The superstar tilted his head with wrinkled brows and gave the hand on his shoulder an ill-disguised look of disgust. The apathetic eyes of his seemed to indicate that he was staring at something filthy.
The young man sobered up a little at his repulsed gaze. Hastily retracting his hand, he tucked his head under his chin in fright.
The birthday girl was seething, but fortunately, she managed to sustain the lovely smile on her face. "Master Gu, thank you for coming today!"
He replied without sparing her a glance and proceeded to pull Yun Shishi more securely into his arms.
It was only when the two were gone from sight that her expression crumbled. She twirled around to eye all of them and sniggered with rage. "A bunch of disgraceful pr*cks!"
"What's wrong, Minglan? Who made you angry again?"
"Precisely! How did we humiliate you this time?!"
She smirked. "You people think too highly of yourselves! You all dared spout those words yet still wished to befriend Master Gu with your lousy abilities? Between him and you all, what are the positions? Don't you guys know to be more respectful to him?! Shame on you!"
These people were immensely displeased by her censure.
"What do you mean by that?! Isn't he just an entertainer?"
"I bet you don't know this! Gu Xingze is the youngest son of the Gu family's previous head. He he! As a bastard, his position in the family is naturally inferior to his older brother's! In any case, Minglan, your words are too harsh."
"Exactly. Don't be so vicious with your words! Today is your birthday. We came to celebrate it with you, but your fierceness just made some of us unhappy!"
Her smile became increasingly chilly. "What of that? You people are truly pr*cks. Where did your qualifications to tease Master Gu stem from? I'm totally humiliated by you all!"
Li Chengze, whose mood had also soured by her humiliating words, scoffed. "Should you treat us this way simply because of one Gu Xingze? I can't stand the sight of him; he's too arrogant. The head of the Gu family is still Gu Jinglian at the end of the day, and he doesn't even pull a long face like this younger brother of his! What position of authority does he have to put on airs – to give us the attitude of someone standing high above the masses?"
Ye Minglan glared at him and snapped, "Li Chengze, what about you?! I sent you signals with my eyes earlier, but you just didn't know how to show restraint! I warned you, time and again, not to lay a finger on Master Gu's woman, yet you totally ignored my words! She's just a woman – a commoner, yet just think of how you acted earlier. If I didn't know better, I'd say you've never had a woman before!"
