Chapter 289: You Must Give Your Boyfriend Some Space
Everyone had seen what had just happened on the big screen. Lu Jiahao was the boss of ET, so naturally, he was sat at the VIP area. He stared at her intently and finally realized that the lady was indeed Mrs. Huo?!
The man with her was clad in a black suit. The area was too dim so he could not make out his character, but he could tell that he did look rather handsome, like a celebrity… Before he came to Jingdu, he had done some investigation on what kind of person Mrs. Huo was. Everyone had said that she was a playgirl and did not have a good relationship with Mr. Huo, and so, Lu Jiahao was confident that this handsome man had to be one of her boyfriends!
Was God not relying on Mrs. Huo’s protection? Mrs. Huo herself had not much influence, so did that mean that she was also relying on Mr. Huo’s power? If he blackmailed her now…
Lu Jiahao stood in the first row, looking at Ning Meng. He was about to say something, but the staff came over to ask him to be seated and not disturb other people’s line of sight. Lu Jiahao chuckled and raised his fingers at Ning Meng as he sniggered, “Mrs. Huo, you will soon find out the difference between veterans and newbies!”
He then pointed at Huo Beichen. “Also… I think there’s a necessity to have a chat with Mrs. Huo after the match.”
He only sat down after he had said all these things. The auditorium finally fell silent and there was an introduction for the players on the stage.
PUBG was a game where one hundred players would land onto a deserted island at the same time and gather guns and ammunition among other things as preparation. One could accumulate points by killing other players. If you could survive until the end, you would also gather points from there. There were five rounds in total, and the final score would determine the rankings. Even if one could not stay alive until the end, one could rely on killing other players to garner points and raise their ranks.
The introduction of the players took some time and Ning Meng became bored as that was going on. On top of that, she had just been kissed in public, so she felt that the people around her kept side-staring at her. She would rather lower her head and play with her phone to distract herself from her embarrassment. Coincidentally, someone sent a text to the “Happy Idiots” group.
Zhen Shanmei: [?? What do you mean? @Qi Shan]
Qi Shan: [?]
Zhen Shanmei: [Why did you tell the person who introduced you to this blind date that you were very satisfied?]
Qi Shan: [Why did you also say that you were very satisfied?]
Both sent their texts at the same time.
Qi Shan: [You’re a woman. If I did not say that I was satisfied, you would lose your reputation. I thought you would do otherwise.]
Zhen Shanmei: [I was embarrassed to say that you were not worth it. I thought that you would reject me.]
Qi Shan: [What do we do now?]
Zhen Shanmei: [What do we do?]
Seeing them stuck in their anxiousness, Ning Meng decided to jump in to help.
Ning Meng: [Why don’t both of you give it a try? You’re both single anyway.]
A straight-laced man and a straight-laced woman. How matching!
After she had sent the text out, both sides remained silent.
After two minutes.
Qi Shan: [Why don’t we give it a go?]
Zhen Shanmei: […We have to try it. My dad has told the person who introduced us that if we both are serious, he wants you to come and have dinner with us.]
Ning Meng smiled when she saw this. Glancing over at the guy who was sat next to her, she then sent a text to the group.
Ning Meng: [Shanmei, now that you have a boyfriend, remember to give him space and take up your responsibility.]
Zhen Shanmei: [?]
Qi Shan: [Missus, you’ve finally said something sensible.]
Ning Meng: [Give him space to earn money and coax you. Put him in charge of all the housework. You must take up your responsibility to eat, wear nice clothes, and buy, buy, buy.]
After she had sent this, she put her phone down as the competition had started.
