"Oh," responded Ji Yi as she pretended to look drunk and stumbled forward two steps. She sluggishly turned around and headed in the direction the waitress pointed to.
As she brushed past the waitress, she pretended to not be able to stand up steadily as she purposefully leaned over to the waitress a little.
With fast reflexes, she saw the waitress support her up before she boldly leaned over onto her body.
"Miss, are you okay?"
Ji Yi heard the waitress's concerned tone, but she didn't say a word and pretended to be suffering while still groggily conscious as she leaned on her shoulder.
"Miss.. Miss?" asked the waitress again.
She asked a few times, but seeing as Ji Yi had no reaction, she looked over at the head of tonight's dinner party, Lin Zhengyi, "Mr. Lin, miss looks like she's drank a lot, should I take her to the lounge area...?"
Lin Zhengyi who had seen everything and heard the waitress's words, immediately got up. He walked over to the waitress, reached over and dragged Ji Yi over to his side. "You don't have to interfere. I'll take her to the lounge."
To pretend that she was drunk, Ji Yi didn't avoid Lin Zhengyi's arms around her waist. She suppressed the repulsive feeling inside and tried hard to put on a hazy expression. She mumbled to herself, "So dizzy..."
When Lin Zhengyi heard her voice, he immediately pulled her out of the room. As they walked, he said flirtatiously, "You won't be dizzy in a moment. I guarantee you'll feel good."
His words roused a room full of people to giggle.
At their sneering glares, Ji Yi almost vomited all the wine from her stomach. She tried hard to stabilize herself and forced herself not to expose her true state, so she let Lin Zhengyi carry her. The waitress followed behind one step at a time as they left the room.
Down the vintage, elegant corridors of Yue Yuan, the waitress walked about five minutes then pushed the double doors open, "Mr. Lin, may I ask - should I get her a drink to sober her up?"
"That's okay," replied Lin Zhengyi. He hurriedly brought Ji Yi into the room. "Shut the door."
"Yes, Mr. Lin," replied the waitress. She immediately closed the door.
As the lounge doors closed shut, Lin Zhengyi impatiently held Ji Yi in his embrace. While he lowered his head to bite at her exposed neck, he reached his hand out and let it trace her waist and up her back.
Ji Yi's heart panicked for a second before she instinctively struggled out of Lin Zhengyi's embrace. She retreated a few steps and put some distance between them.
The woman was already a drunken mess, so how could she suddenly have the strength to pull away now?
Lin Zhengyi was stunned for a moment before he looked up at Ji Yi.
With just the two of them in the room, Ji Yi put away her drunken facade and calmly answered Lin Zhengyi's bewildered look. "Mr. Lin, I'm terribly sorry that I had to use such a method to trick you into speaking to me one-on-one."
"I'm here to personally apologize to you. I hope you can accept my apology, and I hope you can reconsider investing in 'Three Thousand Lunatics'..."
Lin Zhengyi realized he'd been tricked by this women, so he didn't even let her finish and said, "Alright, I can forgive you, but a verbal apology means nothing. If you want apologize, you have to take action."
