After exiting the door of the villa, Bai Luoluo saw a few security guards standing by the door of the villa, surrounded by high iron nets. If he tried to escape, it will be difficult to get out.
Bai Nianjin’s car stopped by the entrance. He and Bai Luoluo got in the car together and he asked Bai Luoluo where he wanted to go.
Bai Luoluo said anything.
Bai Nianjin said: “Why don’t we go have dinner first?”
Bai Luoluo said, “Alright.”
Bai Nianjin drove a black sports car. Bai Luoluo has never seen this brand of car, but looking at its configuration, he knew he couldn’t afford it. The current Bai Nianjin was in a completely different world. Even if he wanted to have a meal, he would need to have four bodyguards around him.
Bai Luoluo learned from the memory that Bai Nianjin’s father died two years ago, seemingly by accident and Bai Nianjin became the youngest Patriarch of the Bai family. These memories were very vague in Bai Luoluo’s mind so he didn’t think much.
Bai Nianjin drove for 20 minutes and parked next to a private garden.
At this time, it was spring, and the garden was full of flowers in full bloom. Bai Luoluo didn’t know anything about gardening, but he could feel the novelty of this garden.
Xiaoqiao Shiting seemed to be taking pictures with a camera casually.
When Bai Nianjin drove in, the gatekeeper at the door appeared to have known him. He only glanced at him, then respectfully greeted Mr. Bai and opened the door for him.
Bai Nianjin’s expression was vague; he only showed expressions in front of Bai Luoluo.
This car was good, Bai Nianjin took Bai Luoluo into the dining area. While walking to the restaurant with Bai Luoluo, he mentioned that this garden was built by a friend of his. In all the four seasons, the beautiful garden is filled with blooming flowers. Even in the cold winter, it remained vibrant.
Bai Luoluo followed Bai Nianjin, listening obediently.
Their dining area was a glass house next to the garden. Bai Luoluo smelled a fruity scent when he walked in. The scent was very light, but tasted as strong as spring in the mountains in March; sweet and icy.
“He made it by himself.” Bai Nianjin handed the menu to Bai Luoluo and said, “Teacher, take a look at what you want to eat.”
Bai Luoluo took the menu and looked at it.
When Bai Luoluo chose, Bai Nianjin looked at Bai Luoluo with his hand on his chin. His eyes were full of obsession, as if he hadn’t seen the person in front of him for a lifetime.
Bai Luoluo was a little terrified. “Nianjin, I’ve decided.”
Bai Nianjin nodded and rang the bell casually.
The waiter came quickly, took the menu, smiled and asked Mr. Bai what wine he wanted to drink.
Bai Nianjin said, “Didn’t your boss say that he just made some fruit wine? That’ll be it.”
The waiter said okay.
Bai Nianjin turned around and said to Bai Luoluo: “The wine made by the boss here is very special. After the remaining snow wine from last year is gone, I will bring you here again this winter.”
Bai Luoluo didn’t reply. He was actually thinking about how to talk to Bai Nianjin. He had suddenly gone into the future and saw this Bai Nianjin. Although his memory is still there, Bai Luoluo was a little uncomfortable.
After ordering the dishes for a while, a tall man in a white cooking uniform walked into the glass house. “Bai Nianjin, I heard others say you brought a friend here?”
Bai Nianjin replied vaguely.
“Yes.” The man glanced at Bai Luoluo and then cried in surprise, “Fuck, Bai Nianjin…”
Before he could say anything, he was forced back by Bai Nianjin’s gaze, and then Bai Nianjin said, “Li Shenquan, I’m here to eat, not to listen to your talk.”
The man named Li Shenquan muttered something.
Although his voice was not loud, Bai Luoluo still heard him.
Bai Luoluo told the system aggrievedly: “I’m just an innocent middle-aged man.”
The system said: “Yes, I will testify for you.”
Bai Nianjin said coldly: “Don’t you know that people who talk a lot die faster?”
Li Shenquan also has good intuition. He glanced at Bai Luoluo’s unhappy and melancholy face, and then looked at Bai Nianjin’s unkind expression. He guessed something. He and Bai Nianjin met six years ago and were already good friends. This friend of his was excellent in all aspects, but he didn’t know why he never looked for a partner. It was not until last year that he suddenly heard of someone being with Bai Nianjin. But Li Shenquan had never seen Bai Nianjin’s rumoured partner. He thought that Bai Nianjin had a strong desire for exclusivity, so he was unwilling to let his partner come out to meet others. Now, it seems that the relationship between the two does not seem to be as harmonious as he thought.
It was spring now. Bai Luoluo wore less, so the ring on his feet was exposed as soon as he sat down. Li Shenquan saw it and then linked it to Bai Luoluo’s melancholic expression, and almost guessed the truth behind the relationship between Bai Nianjin and Bai Luoluo. He never expected that his friend would actually have to force others…
Li Shenquan said, “Okay, I’ll go cook.” After that, he quickly ran off.
Seeing that Bai Luoluo’s expression seemed wrong, Bai Nianjin explained softly: “Teacher, he always speaks his mind, don’t take it to heart.”
Bai Luoluo said: “It’s okay.”
The atmosphere between the two is no longer as harmonious as when they were young.
The dishes came quickly, and both the ingredients and the presentation were very particular. Bai Luoluo first tasted the grilled cod, the signature dish, and thought it was really good.
Soon the fruit wine Bai Nianjin ordered was brought over. The fruit wine was a faint red, served in a transparent glass with a few pink petals sprinkled on it. The rich aroma of wine spread from afar, Bai Luoluo comforted himself that he had only the strength to escape when he was full, so he took a sip from the wine glass.
Good wine. Bai Luoluo praised in his heart, the flavor is mellow with a lingering aftertaste. Although it was a fruit wine, the sweetness of the fruit has not overwhelmed the taste of the wine at all, so it doesn’t make the wine feel cheap. On the contrary, his mouth was full of fragrance, and the taste even seemed to permeate his nose through his esophagus, filling his entire body with the aroma of this wine.
Bai Luoluo said, “Is this wine too strong for you?”
Bai Nianjin said: “Not strong.” He added some ice cubes to his wine and asked Bai Luoluo if he wanted it.
Bai Luoluo didn’t like to drink it with ice, so he shook his head.
Soon, other dishes were served. Bai Luoluo ate happily and occasionally asked Bai Nianjin about its ingredients.
The system said quietly: “If Bai Nianjin invites you to have a few more meals, you might even forget my name.”
Bai Luoluo was silent for three seconds and asked guiltily: “Ah, what is your name?”
System: “…” You’ve lost a good friend.
Bai Luoluo said, “So what is your name?”
The system said: “I refuse to tell you my job number.”
Bai Luoluo: “…” Are you afraid of being reported?
When the two of them ate, the atmosphere was a little more harmonious, but the chef Li Shenquan, who had slipped away before, ran back again, still curious. Bai Luoluo felt that he could see it from his face: I want to know gossip, five words.
Bai Nianjin coldly watched Li Shenquan shamelessly take a stool and sit between him and Bai Luoluo. He asked shyly if the meat was delicious and how the food tasted.
Li Shenquan also reached out to Bai Luoluo and said, “Hello, my name is Li Shenquan, I am a friend of Bai Nianjin, can I ask…”
Bai Nianjin interrupted him mercilessly: “No.”
Li Shenquan: “…”
Bai Luoluo swallowed the fish in his mouth and said vaguely: “Hello, my name is Li Hansheng.”
Li Shenquan said: “Oh, your surname is Li, we’re family!”
Bai Nianjin: “…” He knew it.
Li Shenquan said: “When did you and Nian Jin meet?”
Bai Luoluo glanced at his eyebrows and thought for a while before saying: “It’s been a long time.”
Bai Nianjin said, “Li Shenquan, enough.”
Li Shenquan knows that it’s not a good thing to make Bai Nianjin irritated, but he really couldn’t help it. Bai Nianjin, a benchmark of abstinence in their circle that is said to be used only once every three months, actually found a lover. It looks like this melon was forcibly twisted off. But whether it’s sweet or not, it’s a melon…
Li Shenquan said: “Oh, it must be hard for you, Bai Nianjin.”
Bai Luoluo: “…” His current image is indeed in line with Li Shenquan’s imagination. His face is delicate, his temperament is elegant, and his expression is melancholic. The wrists exposed from the sleeves were extremely slender, as well as his ankles. The ring was simply a poor example of being forced.
Bai Nianjin sneered after hearing these words: “Are you looking for death?”
Bai Luoluo thought he almost wanted to flip the table.
Sensing Bai Nianjin’s anger, Li Shenquan hurriedly said, “You eat, I won’t speak anymore, eat!”
Bai Luoluo: “…” Oh, so sad.
