“Oh shit, Xinya is really shrewd. Answer it, answer it, answer…” said Han Mofeng, who could not stand how wishy-washy Gu Junling was.
“Answer, answer, answer…” Ling Qingxuan chimed in.
Gu Junling was drinking some red wine when he heard Wen Xinya point the arrow at him. He instantly stopped and choked on his wine.
Gu Junling coughed violently and turned beet red.
Zhou Tianyu handed him a glass of warm water and patted his back to help him ease up.
Gu Junling was extremely touched.
Zhou Tianyu kicked him and rebuked. “Don’t feign dead. Hurry and answer the question.”
Gu Junling’s heart shattered into bits and he glared at Wen Xinya. “Change the question, ask me another question. You guys are clearly asking the obvious.”
Wen Xinya guffawed loudly and said, “You must consider carefully. You only get one chance. If you don’t treasure it, it won’t come by again.”
Xu Tongxuan laughed and exclaimed, “Dear, you only get one chance!”
Han Mofeng kicked Gu Junling and said, “Seriously, don’t make me look down on you.”
Ling Qingxuan poured a glass of white wine and shoved it into Gu Junling’s hand. “Brother, have some white wine to give yourself courage.”
Gu Junling downed the entire glass at one go and burped before glancing at Zhou Tianyu. He said, “Can I say that I fancy Tianyu?”
Zhou Tianyu kicked him again and chided. “Goddamn it, stop using me as a shield. Drink up, drink up…”
Gu Junling’s face turned as red as a tomato and he grimaced. Although he was trying his best to laugh, he could not hide his embarrassment. A sudden awkwardness filled the air in the room.
Wen Xinya suddenly felt guilty and started blaming herself.
The few of them looked at each other in dismay while Zhou Tianyu stared on in puzzlement. Gu Junling then guffawed and said, “We’ve been childhood friends for so long. Who else am I supposed to use as a shield, if not you? How could you embarrass me like that? What a lousy friend!”
Although he tried to play it off as a joke, everyone was ill at ease.
Zhou Tianyu’s heart sank and she suddenly felt a little upset.
Gu Junling picked up the three glasses of wine and downed them all, one after another. Although it was just a simple action of drinking, it seemed he was drowning his sorrows.
Han Mofeng patted his shoulder and comforted him.
Ling Qingxuan had no idea what to say at all.
Wen Xinya and Xu Tongxuan looked at each other, feeling extremely helpless.
It was time for Gu Junling to ask the question. A little tipsy, he raised his voice and guffawed brazenly. He asked, “Ling Qingxuan, are you still a virgin or not?”
Exasperated, Ling Qingxuan kicked him for asking such a crude question. “Goddamn it, I’ll drink, will that do?”
Gu Junling snatched the wine bottle from his hand and said, “No, you must answer. You’re not allowed to lie either…”
Ling Qingxuan glowered at him and retorted. “Fine. You’re really something, eh? I lost my virginity on the day I turned eighteen, alright?”
Xu Tongxuan and Zhou Tianyu burst into laughter.
Wen Xinya stared at Gu Junling, suddenly feeling a sense of melancholy.
Xu Tongxuan was then made to spill the beans about her first love and her first kiss. Xu Tongxuan then kicked Ling Qingxuan, causing him to jump and run around the house. Finally, it was Xu Tongxuan’s turn to ask, and she asked Ling Qingxuan which sex position he was in when he lost his virginity.
Everyone was beyond astonished and Han Mofeng slipped and fell onto the ground, causing Zhou Tianyu to spurt her red wine out and splatter it all over Gu Junling’s face.
Ling Qingxuan turned red with embarrassment and began stammering.
Xu Tongxuan then pointed at Ling Qingxuan and laughed out loud before calling bluff on Ling Qingxuan’s claim about losing his virginity on the day of his eighteenth birthday. She even suggested that he do a pole dance as a forfeit.
The poor Ling Qingxuan had to drink a glass of red wine as a forfeit and he was even stripped down to his underwear by Han Mofeng and Gu Junling, after which he was forced to do a pole dance.
Everyone guffawed incessantly.
After a burst of long laughter, Wen Xinya discovered that Gu Junling had left his seat. She scanned her surroundings, only to see that he was hiding in the balcony and taking a smoke. The fumes of smoke were surrounding him and he looked extremely lonely.
“Tianyu is going to kick you again when she sees you smoking,” Wen Xinya said while walking towards him slowly. The overwhelming stench of the smoke made her throat feel ticklish and uncomfortable.
Gu Junling took a deep puff of his half-smoked cigarette and looked down at the cigarette bud in his hands. He then snubbed it with his finger, seemingly unbothered by the heat.
Wen Xinya said slowly, “You and Tianyu are both adults. There are some things you should and should not say. You have to make things clear somehow. Tianyu may seem bubbly and outgoing on the surface, but she’s the most meticulous one out of us all. She doesn’t understand how you feel about her because it’s already become a habit.”
In her previous lifetime, Zhou Tianyu became an outstanding foreign affairs minister, though Wen Xinya had no idea what happened to her and Gu Junling in the end. However, she knew that it would be impossible between her and Gu Junling once she became a foreign affairs minister.
Firstly, the Gu Family was involved in the mafia, and if Zhou Tianyu were to become a politician, she would definitely eradicate all illegal organizations and wouldn’t let anyone attack her using her background.
Moreover, the Gu Family were merchants and would have nothing to do with Zhou Tianyu if she were a politician. Regardless of how much they doted on Zhou Tianyu, the Zhou Family definitely wouldn’t allow her to marry a family of merchants.
Now that Zhou Tianyu had yet to mention any plans of becoming a politician, Wen Xinya decided that she should take the chance and make Gu Junling reveal his feelings towards Zhou Tianyu during the Truth or Dare game. Regardless of the outcome, they would at least know each other better.
Gu Junling’s thick lips curled into a smile and he said, “I was initially too worried about her being young and ignorant about love. Now that she’s grown up, I’m worried that I might scare her by confessing to her. She’s always treated me like a close friend. Hence, I lost the courage to confess, though I feel like I must make things clear even if it means that we can’t be friends anymore. You’re right, we’re adults and we ought to handle things properly.”
Wen Xinya suddenly recalled how she tried to avoid Si Yiyan and refused to open up to him despite enjoying the love and affection he showered her. She wondered if Si Yiyan felt the same about her as Gu Junling did about Zhou Tianyu.
However, she was much more vicious compared to Zhou Tianyu who had no idea that Gu Junling carried a torch for her.
