Chapter 20: Are you her boyfriend? (4)
“I don’t know if I can have the honor of inviting this beautiful lady for a drink?”
A young man handed Gu Yuanyuan a glass of wine.
Gu Yuanyuan just wanted to act innocent, pretending that she could not understand the meaning of the other person’s words. “I’m sorry uncle, but I can’t drink.”
The corner of the young man’s mouth twitched as he stared at the girl in front of him. She had bright eyes and white teeth. Compared to the other women he had seen, they were far more ordinary and vulgar. His anger disappeared, and he became more focused. “I was too abrupt, I …”
Gu Yuanyuan suddenly saw a familiar figure – one similar to Erbao’s. He quickly caught up and directly bumped into the “Uncle”.
It really was Erbao!
Gu Yuanyuan stopped in surprise. Why would Erbao be here?
Wearing a black suit, Gu Yizhou stood out in the crowd. In front of him stood a man and a woman, just in time for Gu Yuanyuan to walk over and start listening to what the man said. “If you don’t drink, then you aren’t giving me face, so Dr. Gu will despise me.”
Gu Yizhou frowned. The woman beside the man looked at him pleadingly.
As a doctor, you needed to maintain the most sober mind; thus, Gu Yizhou never touched things like alcohol.
A moment later, Gu Yizhou lowered his eyes and accepted the glass of wine, but did not drink it.
“Drink.” The man urged as the woman whispered, “Yizhou…”
Gu Yizhou flicked his eyes at her and lifted the cup to drink.
In the next moment, a white and slender hand reached over and took his cup. “I’ll drink it for him.”
Gu Yuanyuan sipped a little, which caused tears to almost start flowing from her eyes. Fortunately, she held them back and poured the cup, saying that there was not a drop left. Standing in front of Gu Yizhou, she looked at the man directly and smiled. “Sir, may I also offer you a toast?”
When the man saw the sudden appearance of Gu Yuanyuan, he was stunned for a moment. Then he passed by with a flash of amazement in his eyes. Looking at Gu Yuanyuan, his eyes became fiery, and he nodded his head without thinking. “Of course.”
Gu Yizhou’s face was expressionless. At the moment that Gu Yuanyuan arrived, it was too late to think about how she could have appeared here. He had seen her ears quickly redden, and he concluded that she couldn’t handle alcohol well.
Just when he was about to speak, Gu Yuanyuan suddenly turned around and winked at him playfully. Gu Yizhou paused and stopped talking.
“Sir, you must drink it.” Gu Yuanyuan said this with a smile, grabbed an empty glass, and poured every bottle of wine beside it into the glass.
Soon, a colorful glass of wine was ready. The smile on the man’s face disappeared, and he knew that the woman was deliberately punishing him.
Who didn’t know that different kinds of wine couldn’t be mixed together?
Gu Yuanyuan handed the wine over to him and mocked the man’s earlier words. “Did you just say yes? Or do you dislike the wine I offered?”
“…” The man sneered and turned to leave with a green face. The woman looked at Gu Yizhou with a sad gaze and immediately followed behind the man.
Shortly after, Gu Yuanyuan fainted. Gu Yizhou took hold of her cup and touched her forehead; it was very hot.
He held Gu Yuanyuan up and quickly poured her a glass of lemon juice. Gu Yuanyuan drank it all, and the sweet and sour lemon juice washed away some of the wine.
She shook her head and said to Gu Yizhou, “Er… Dr. Gu, why are you here? Do you know the girl from just now?”
She saw that it was because of the woman that Gu Yizhou agreed to drink.
Gu Yizhou answered her questions one by one. “I’m in charge of Old Master Shu’s illness, so the Shu family sent me an invitation.
“That… that was my girlfriend from college.” Gu Yizhou didn’t hide it either. Seeing that Gu Yuanyuan’s eyes were a bit hazy, he helped her to find a small sofa to sit down on, knowing that she was not feeling very well.
Gu Yuanyuan was really upset, but she didn’t think she was drunk. Which mother felt indifferent to seeing her child being forced to drink in public?
If it weren’t for the fact that this was Mr. Shu’s birthday party, and she didn’t want to make trouble for Shu Ran, she would have poured the glass of wine over that man.
He dared to bully her son in front of her, so he should be prepared to take a beating.
“Girlfriend?” Gu Yuanyuan’s mind turned quickly, and combined with the situation just now, she came to a conclusion. “Did she abandon you because you were too poor, and she instead eloped with a tycoon?”
Gu Yizhou: “…”
