The warmth from his chest was radiated to Tong Yi’s forehead through his thin shirt, her nose filled with his clean and pleasant masculine scent.
Tong Yi quickly backed away from his chest, her heart raging in chaos, yet she tried to fake calm by tucking away the hair by her ear.
Being so close to him, she could neither act too ecstatic, nor could she show any signs of panic. Otherwise, it wouldn’t feel like she was really chasing after him.
She had to be calm and collected!!
Lu Zhanbei’s gaze landed on Tong Yi’s red ears. A smile slowly broke through the ice in his deep eyes. This little thing had the brains to cook up schemes but no guts to execute them.
Tong Yi swallowed her saliva. Her throat felt tight. She looked at Lu Zhanbei as if nothing had happened and said, “You must exercise a lot, right? Your chest muscles are pretty impressive.”
Chen Mu was rendered speechless at this scene. He was impressed. Between the both of them, one was calmer than the other. Since they were both so calm after what had happened, he, who was just a witness, should too be calm and collected.
Chen Mu looked ahead and gripped the steering wheel firmly. He swore to drive steadily.
Lu Zhanbei stared at Tong Yi for two seconds before looking at Chen Mu. “Book a room for her at the hotel.”
Chen Mu said, “Alright, Master Bei.”
Tong Yi subconsciously disagreed. “I want to stay with you.” After saying that, she saw Lu Zhanbei’s turn to look at her. His gaze was deep and dangerous, and the pressure that radiated from him was so intense that she couldn’t bear it.
Tong Yi’s eyes dropped slightly, no longer insisting. It wasn’t worth it to forcefully fling herself on him. “Thank you.”
For the rest of the morning, Chen Mu brought them around the more famous places in Lan City.
Lu Zhanbei seemed to be very busy and would pick up calls from time to time.
Tong Yi couldn’t help but feel that he was on a routine business trip the entire journey when in reality, he was supposed to be showing her some fun. The entire time, she felt like she was accompanying her boss around for site inspections.
However, Tong Yi was still feeling awkward about the topic of the emergency contraceptive pills earlier. Every time she thought of it, her face would flush red, so she didn’t attempt to seduce or flirt with Lu Zhanbei for the rest of the morning.
When it was almost time for lunch, Lu Zhanbei said to her, “I have a social gathering to attend over lunch. Shall I send you back to the hotel?”
“Can I go with you?”
Lu Zhanbei asked, “Are you sure?”
‘Why does this tone of his sound so familiar?’ Tong Yi thought in her heart. It was the same tone that he had used when he asked her if she really wanted to know what Chen Mu meant earlier.
Was he setting her up again?
On second thought, they were just going to have a meal. What trap could there be?
In the real world, she lived alone so she had pretty good culinary skills from all the daily practice. To get to his heart, first, she had to understand what Lu Zhanbei liked to eat. Once she has won over his heart, she would make him willingly get engaged to her.
Following that line of thought, Tong Yi nodded.
“Alright then.” Lu Zhanbei agreed as he crossed one leg over the other.
Tong Yi was speechless. He had agreed so readily? Why did she feel uneasy? It seemed like she had to find a chance to ask Chen Mu.
About half an hour later, the black Cayenne stopped before a high-end Western restaurant.
The three of them entered the restaurant together. It was decorated in a typical Italian style. The style was easy on the eye, and the environment was clean and quiet. It seemed like a pretty good place.
A friendly and polite waiter came up to them and asked if they had a reservation. Chen Mu stated a room number. Just as the waiter was about to lead the way for the three of them, Chen Mu politely declined, saying that they knew the way. Smiling, the waiter nodded and left.
The three of them went upstairs. As they walked toward the private room, Tong Yi said, “I want to go to the washroom.” Then, she looked at Chen Mu and said, “I’m not familiar with this place. Assistant Chen, can you lead the way for me?”
Chen Mu was Lu Zhanbei’s personal assistant.
Hence, he looked at Lu Zhanbei to seek approval. After Lu Zhanbei nodded slightly, he led Tong Yi to the washroom. After walking through a long corridor, Chen Mu stopped at a corner. “Miss Tong, the washroom is just inside.”
Tong Yi didn’t go in. Instead, she turned back to check the corridor and saw that Lu Zhanbei had already entered the private room. She turned and asked Chen Mu, “Who’s Lu Zhanbei having lunch with today?”
