Love at First Kiss: Surrendering to my Devil Husband - Chapter 58
The waiter quickly brought the red wine over, and poured the three of them a little wine in each of their glasses, before retreating to the side to wait on them.
Qiao Qing took a small sip. She pursed her lips, and said in seriousness, “It’s really a wine on sale. It’s not sweet at all.”
“Cough, cough.” Lei Lie choked on the wine in his throat, and kept coughing.
“Sorry, Lei Lie. I didn’t mean anything by that,” Qiao Qing quickly explained herself.
“I was just shocked by your latter sentence. How can you use sweetness to judge the quality of red wine, hahaha.” Lei Lie burst into laughter.
Qiao Qing was so embarrassed that her face turned red.
“Don’t laugh at her,” Lan Qianyu chided.
“That’s right. Children like me from poor families have only drunk Great Wall dry red wine that costs about 100 to 200 yuan, we have never drunk red wine that costs more than a thousand yuan.” Qiao Qing rolled her eyes at Lei Lie.
“A child from a poor family but still willing to spend so much money to treat her friends to a meal, you’re a true friend,” Lei Lie quipped.
“Of course, Qianyu is my best friend. As long as it can make her happy, I’m willing to spend my entire fortune.” Qiao Qing thumped her chest loftily.
Lan Qianyu was very moved. “Silly girl, today you almost went bankrupt. If you really spent your entire month of living expenses, what will you eat next month?”
“I’ll eat whatever you eat. Anyway, you will definitely take care of me.” Qiao Qing chuckled. “I’m smart right? On the surface, it seems like I’m treating you, but in actuality, I’m freeloading meals from you.”
“We’re best friends, as long as I have a mouth of food, I’ll never let you go hungry.” Lan Qianyu smiled at her.
Lei Lie lamented sincerely, “Your friendship is really enviable.”
“Don’t be jealous, don’t you also have an enviable friendship with us?” Lan Qianyu winked at him.
“I’m dizzy from you bewitching me.” Lei Lie pretended to look infatuated.
“Haha.” Qiao Qing laughed loudly.
“Let us toast to friendship.”
Lan Qianyu raised her wine glass, and the three of them drank a toast, throwing all their unhappiness to the back of their minds.
Just then, the waiter served the steaks and the trio chatted while eating.
After a while, Qiao Qing went to the bathroom. The waiter served the other side dishes. Among them, there was a dish of French escargots. The moment Lan Qianyu smelled it, her face immediately changed. Covering her mouth, Lan Qianyu retched. Lei Lie asked in concern, “Qianyu, what’s wrong with you?”
“Toilet.” Lan Qianyu’s face looked terrible.
“There’s someone in the bathroom, I’ll take you upstairs.” Lei Lie immediately helped Lan Qianyu to the toilet upstairs. Lan Qianyu rushed in and closed the door. She then vomited non-stop.
Lei Lie stood outside and waited anxiously. The manager rushed over and said in a low voice, “I’m sorry, Young Master, I didn’t expect such an accident to happen.”
“What went wrong? Is there a problem with those dishes? Why did my friend vomit as soon as she smelled it?” Lei Lie irritably snapped in a low voice.
“Young Master, we wouldn’t dare to be inattentive towards your friends. All that food just arrived by air this morning. They’re absolutely fresh. Could it be that your friend is allergic to escargots?” the manager asked warily.
“Nonsense!” Lei Lie was about to say something, when his phone suddenly rang. As soon as he saw the caller ID, his brows furrowed. He glared at the manager coldly, “Was it you who told my dad that I’m here?”
“This…” The manager timidly lowered his head and murmured softly, “President Lei has been looking for you everywhere.”
“Busybody.” Lei Lie glared at him in annoyance, and hurried to the side to answer his phone.
Lan Qianyu vomited for a long time before she finally stopped. Her face was as pale as paper, and her stomach was churning like the sea and making her feel unwell. She had no strength in her entire body. She pressed the toilet flush and wanted to stand up, but her legs weakened and she fell towards the ground again. All of a sudden, a hand supported her from behind.
