Chapter 387: Since You’re Not Drunk Yet, Let’s Continue to Drink
Zi Yi looked at him with a ridiculous expression. “Why would I be jealous? I understand my Ah Jing’s personality the best.”
She even playfully winked at Lu Jingye.
He silently lifted the glass and drank the red wine. He felt stifled, as he felt that all he had spoken about earlier was in vain.
After drinking, he seemed to have thought of something and asked, “Miss Zi, who made that robot of yours that is capable of invisibility?”
Ian was surprised. “To think you’re able to make such a cutting-edge robot!”
He then looked towards Lu Jingye. “I thought it was Lu’s Company who made it.”
Lu Jingye lifted his eyelids and said in a tone that seemed to be showing off, “Yiyi is very awesome.”
Zi Yi’s eyes turned into crescent moons.
Lu Jingye lifted his hand and stroked her head.
His stomach felt a little full. Could it be that this was the so-called getting fed with dog food? [1. In China, dog food is slang. It’s when a couple does a public display of affection and those who are single would be fed with dog food. Can be used in context together with a third person hanging out with a couple and they are known as lightbulb.]
“Since Miss Zi’s robot is so advanced, why didn’t you make it similar to human beings? In that case, you’ll be able to bring along your robot anywhere as and when you like?”
“I still lack some materials.’
Zi Yi’s robots each had some obvious mechanical features. It was not because she was unable to make them resemble a human, but she was not satisfied with the synthetic skin that existed here. She was waiting for her energy company to create the type of skin she wanted and then she would simply install it onto all her robots.
Zi Yi’s answer caused Ian to misunderstand. He looked up to Lu Jingye and said, “Lu, you’re in the wrong then. The Lu Group has a robot R&D company, so why didn’t you provide Miss Zi with the materials she lacked?”
Lu Jingye glanced at him and did not feel like answering at all. He simply filled up his glass for him and raised it. “Since you’re not drunk yet, let’s continue drinking.”
Sure enough, this person was still as irritating as six years ago.
This time around, Ian stopped talking and they started to drink at a faster frequency. Soon, they finished all the alcohol on the table and Ian left to get a few more bottles.
When they had drunk until 11 p.m, Lu Jingye finally put down his glass.
Ian, who was slightly woozy, asked delightfully, “Lu, are you drunk?”
Lu Jingye looked at Zi Yi whose cheeks were red and her eyes appeared particularly bright. After thinking about it for a moment, he nodded. “Sort of.”
Why does he feel like hitting someone?
In fact, Zi Yi was excited from all the drinking, and the moment she heard what Lu Jingye said, she poked his cheeks with her finger unhappily. “You’re not drunk at all and I haven’t had enough.”
Lu Jingye reached for her finger and lightly grabbed it. “Excessive drinking harms the body.”
Zi Yi was unwilling to stop. “But I don’t want to lose.”
Lu Jingye calmly said, “It doesn’t matter. When the time comes during the cooperation, I’ll get them to take a lower share of profits, and that’ll make up for the alcohol.”
Is it a good idea for you two to discuss this in front of the person involved?
Just then, Lu Jingye even kindly asked, “Can you walk on your own?”
“Lu, are you joking with me?” Ian felt that Lu Jingye was looking down on him.
Lu Jingye nodded and pulled Zi Yi up before they headed for their rooms.
Ian suddenly felt stifled deep down.
He stared at the remaining two bottles of red wine on the table and without a second thought, he reached to grab them and continued drinking.
After Zi Yi and Lu Jingye returned to the guest room, Lu Jingye got Zi Yi to take a shower first.
Zi Yi directly grabbed onto his clothes and leaned her head on his chest as she said, “I’ve had too much, my legs are a little soft.”
Lu Jingye grabbed her waist and led her into the bathroom and had her lean against the basin. He then pulled up his sleeves and said, “Stand here, I’ll prepare the bathtub for you.”
Zi Yi decided to take off her shoes and tiptoed as she sat on the basin and watched him busy around.
Lu Jingye took everything he did seriously. He was also handsome and had a tall figure. His appearance of squatting there with his sleeves pulled up as he sceubbed the bathtub, made her unable to shift her gaze away from him.
Lu Jingye only filled up the bathtub after he had carefully scrubbed it all over. While the water was filling up the tub, he walked over and said to her, “Take off your clothes only after the tub is filled up. Don’t catch a cold.”
Zi Yi snaked her hands around her waist and leaned her head against his stomach as she said, “Got it. I’ll finish washing up quickly so that you can wash up too.”
Lu Jingye raised his hand to touch her head and responded with a hum.
Zi Yi released him after that and Lu Jingye left the bathroom.
Zi Yi originally intended to wear her pajamas after she finished bathing, only to realize that there was the scent of alcohol left on them. There was also the scent of oil and smoke from when they were in the kitchen.
She was a little disgusted by the smell and so, she wrapped herself with a large bath towel and opened the door.
Lu Jingye was currently standing by the window as he made a phone call. He gave off a slightly sharp aura, but he immediately restrained his aura and turned around the moment he heard the sounds of the door opening.
However, after he took a glance at the scene before him, he said to the other party on the phone, “That’ll be all.”
Immediately after, he disconnected the call.
His eyes darkened as he looked at Zi Yi. His slightly hoarse voice sounded. “Why didn’t you wear pajamas?”
The bath towel Zi Yi wrapped herself in had a metre’s width, but she was rather tall and it could only cover the important parts. Yet, it appeared extremely provocative which caused Lu Jingye’s heart to quicken.
Lu Jingye’s Adam apple bobbed up and down several times and his hands that were by his side clenched tightly and he controlled himself not to walk over.
Zi Yi was worried about the bath towel dropping and did not notice his reaction. “I originally wanted to wear them, but they are full of the scent of red wine and smoke.”
Lu Jingye pressed the tips of his fingers tightly together and quickly scanned around the room. He saw the set of pajamas prepared for him and walked over to pass them to her. “Wear mine.”
“Then what will you wear?”
“Ian should have several clothes here, I’ll go and get another set from him.”
Zi Yi nodded and took the pajamas as she returned to the bathroom.
Lu Jingye finally breathed a sigh of relief as soon as the door closed. God knows how attractive the young lady was and how much restraint he had used in order to stay away from her.
Lu Jingye turned and left the room and took out his phone to give Ian a call. Yet, he heard the ringtone coming from the living room.
He hung up the call and walked to the living room, only to discover that Ian had more or less finished all the remaining red wine.
Ian was currently holding onto his phone and looking up while he muttered, “What happened? Did my phone ring earlier?”
Lu Jingye was silent for two seconds before he walked to his side and said affirmatively, “Ian, you’re drunk.”
Ian did not turn his head over despite hearing the voice as he continued to mutter, “Why did I hear Lu’s voice? Could it be that he’s not gentle enough and got kicked out by Zi?”
Lu Jingye: “…”
“Do you have extra pajamas in your room?”
“Yes,” Ian muttered to himself. “Pajamas are a necessity and there would definitely be at least five sets of pajamas in my bedroom before I can sleep peacefully.”
Lu Jingye: “…” So he had such a strange habit.
“Go and grab one set for me.”
Ian finally noticed that someone was talking to him and turned his head over ever so slowly. He only managed to realize it was Lu Jingye after he had stared at him for several seconds. He then raised the glass in his hand and said, “Lu, cheers!”
