His implication was that Du Jiayan had boasted to them first and he had merely 'accidentally' ordered a bottle of wine that cost three million.
His succinct words hit the man's sore spot.
The shoulders of Yun Shishi, who was tickled by Mu Yazhe's malicious words, bobbed from trying not to laugh.
Unable to put down his face, the man stubbornly retorted, "Can't afford to pay? Do you think I'm like you? Since I said so, is there a reason why I can't afford to pay?"
"Since you said so, can you please tell your girlfriend not to be so petty?" he countered.
Xiao Xue chortled.
Huang Lili was about to fly into a rage as she lost her face.
With hidden anger, Du Jiayan pressed down on her shoulder and motioned for her to rein in her emotions.
Even though unwilling to do so, she could only suppress her anger. "Forget it! Anyway, three million is peanuts to Jiayan!"
She intended to keep the façade to make herself look good!
Some of the females present looked enviously at her for getting such a rich boyfriend.
Jiang Li, however, regretted attending this class reunion.
What class gathering is this? Clearly, it's for Huang Lili to show off finding herself a good man!
The crowd began to 'chat' with one another. Huang Lili beamed with satisfaction while Du Jiayan occasionally joined the talk.
Naturally, they wanted to recoup the face that they had lost earlier.
The two sang to each other's tune, making a public display of their affection.
Gradually, the topic turned to them, and questions, such as how they got to know each other, when their wedding would be, did he treat her well, and so on, were asked to them.
Sitting in her seat, Yun Shishi drank her wine as she halfheartedly listened to them. There was no doubt that it was her former classmate's personal show.
It was said that she had met Du Jiayan at a pub.
After graduating from college, she met him at a pub by chance, and then both fell in love at first sight.
They got engaged after dating for half a year, and now, she was doing well working at his father's company.
To Huang Lili, women needed not gather great accomplishments; a pretty face was enough to possess everything.
While everyone expressed their envy, she shyly nestled in his embrace with a pout.
Her expression was saying: 'Envious of me? I've found a good man, right?!'
The crowd was also very supportive of her as they sang her praises. "Oh, my! How fortunate Lili is to have such a handsome and rich boyfriend!"
"They're really compatible together. A handsome guy and a beauty – how matching."
She shyly pouted. "Nah, don't flatter me too much!"
Xiao Xue and Jiang Li had goosebumps all over.
Yun Shishi, however, was nonchalant. She simply sampled the desserts as if it had nothing to do with her.
She had not spoken once throughout this conversation. Merely being a listener, she eventually felt that this so-called gathering was getting a tad boring.
Every now and then, her gaze would fall on Gao Nan.
Seeing that her friend and the man were chatting animatedly, for a moment, she was a little hesitant.
Perhaps due to Mu Yazhe's presence today, the man did not make any overt remarks to her.
She yawned. Jiang Li moved closer to her and indignantly complained, "How boring! This woman is so pretentious! Even I want to leave already."
She was feeling downright inferior.
