After staring blankly at the luxurious necklaces on the table for a while, Qin Zhi’ai, puzzled, turned to Gu Yusheng, who was standing next to her.
There are so many expensive necklaces. He must have asked the workers to prepare them before I arrived I just came back from France and haven’t annoyed him. Why did he ask me to come here tonight? Did he only want me to select a necklace in such a formal way?
Qin Zhi’ai frowned gently and thought of how Gu Yusheng had asked her, “How come you’re not wearing the necklace I gave you?”
Is he dissatisfied because I don’t wear that necklace? Does he think that I dislike it, so he’s asking me to select another one?
Qin Zhi’ai racked her brains for a long time. Finally, she thought that explanation was the most plausible one.
It’s nearly midnight. There are hundreds of necklaces on the long table. Will I go over them one by one with the company of all the people here? Moreover, even if I select my favorite, I still don’t have the right to wear it.
Pressing her lips together, Qin Zhi’ai spoke to Gu Yusheng in a calm voice, “The necklace you gave me is very beautiful, but it doesn’t match the clothes I casually wore today”
“Ten!” Gu Yusheng interrupted Qin Zhi’ai suddenly. He took a cigarette out of his pocket. Before he lit the cigarette, he explained what he had said to Qin Zhi’ai, “Select ten necklaces that match your clothes!”
Why is he asking me to select more necklaces after I explained?
Pausing for a few seconds, Qin Zhi’ai continued saying what she had wanted to say before being interrupted by him, “I don’t usually wear this type of clothing”
“Twenty necklaces!” Gu Yusheng raised his eyes and glanced at Qin Zhi’ai. In that time, he only spoke two words. Then, with a cigarette between his lips, he blew white smoke out of his lips.
“If I change into other clothes”
As Qin Zhi’ai started to speak, Gu Yusheng said, “Fifty necklaces!”
Gu Yusheng took the cigarette out of his lips in a rage. “One hundred necklaces! If you speak one more word, I will add one hundred necklaces!”
Qin Zhi’ai swallowed her unsaid words.
Seeing Qin Zhi’ai stop speaking, Gu Yusheng stopped, too. Standing beside her leisurely, he smoked slowly.
In the same position for a long time, Qin Zhi’ai didn’t start to select necklaces on the long table.
Not seeing her reaction, the man who had just helped couldn’t help reminding her, “Miss, may I help you select the necklaces?”
Without responding to him, Qin Zhi’ai wished to speak to Gu Yusheng, but stopped on a second thought. She was afraid that he would force her to select two hundreds necklaces after hearing her words. Therefore, she closed her mouth and only stared at him.
Feeling that she was looking at him, but Gu Yusheng pretended that she wasn’t there. After a while, he squinted at her and asked, “Why don’t you start selecting?”
Later, he put out the cigarette between his fingers, and threw the butt into the trash can casually. Then he walked over to her. “Okay, if you can’t select now, you can select in a moment. Anyway, tonight, I have time to spend with you!”
As he said this, he put his arm around Qin Zhi’ai’s shoulder and said, “Let’s go do something more meaningful first!”
