Season 2

Episode 198

(Her Eyes Resemble Hers (8)

The lights in the room were all switched on, so it was extremely bright there. Gu Yusheng happened to sit under the brightest light, which made his light skin even lighter, as flawless as porcelain.

That day, he had worn a black shirt and let his suit jacket randomly hang over the back of the chair. With two buttons on his chest undone, he looked relaxed and quite casual.

On his right hand side sat Lu Bancheng, who was saying something to him and smiling every now and then.

He looked mild and peaceful, head tilted to one side, listening but not talking. Occasionally when Lu Bancheng shook his head and laughed exaggeratedly, he would glimpse at him to show his detest deliberately, then Lu Bancheng would immediately stop laughing and continue talking.

“Here comes my honey!” Wu Hao, who had been sitting relatively close to the door, had seen first that someone was opening the door, so he had turned his head to look to the door. When he saw it was Xu Wennuan, he immediately put his cup on the table and stood up, saying, “You’re here, my love! Come and sit…”

Although Wu Hao was talking to Xu Wennuan, Qin Zhi’ai also brought herself back from her thoughts. They, led by Xu Wennuan, walked to the two empty seats next to Wu Hao and sat down.

Wu Hao first spread a placemat for Xu Wennuan, then handed her a cup of warm water. “Drink some water, the dishes will be served very soon.”

Even though many years had passed, Wu Hao was still as considerate to Xu Wennuan as when they met.

In that instant, Qin Zhi’ai felt like she was having a hallucination of traveling back to the old days when she had been dragged out by Xu Wennuan to meet with Wu Hao and had met Gu Yusheng at a party.

Thinking this, Qin Zhi’ai couldn’t help raising her head in the middle of moving the placemat and taking a glance at Gu Yusheng, who was sitting diagonally across the table.

Gu Yusheng was greeting Xu Wennuan, but when he moved his gaze back, he saw Qin Zhi’ai looking at him. He wrinkled his eyebrows and then landed his eyes on Qin Zhi’ai’s face again.

Being stared at by him, Qin Zhi’ai felt like she couldn’t even breath for a second. Then Gu Yusheng looked away without any emotion and to Lu Bancheng, who had been talking to him, responded in a flat tone, “What did you say?”

Before Qin Zhi’ai and Xu Wennuan had arrived, the dishes had already been ordered.

Therefore, the waiters started carrying the dishes onto the table a minute after they arrived.

There were many people in the room, the majority of whom were high school classmates of Gu Yusheng and Wu Hao.

Qin Zhi’ai had met one or two of them when she had hung out with Xu Wennuan and Wu Hao in high school, but she wasn’t familiar with them and barely even knew their names.

Lu Bancheng hadn’t gone to the same high school as them, for he had been sent abroad after graduating from middle school. This was the first time he had met Xu Wennuan.

After the wine had been served and he had offered a toast to the others, he raised his glass to Xu Wennuan, but said to Wu Hao, “Haozi, shouldn’t you make an introduction?”

Wu Hao embraced Xu Wennuan with one arm, and responded with pride, “My love, Xu Wennuan.” Then he tilted his head toward Xu Wennuan and said to her in a very gentle voice, “I’ve mentioned him to you. This is Lu Bancheng, the young master of the Lu Family, who has given up his family business, but chosen to invest in the TV series and movies with his money.”

Xu Wennuan smiled slightly after hearing the introduction, then stood up in a very proper manner, clinked glasses with Lu Bancheng, and drank the whole cup of wine.

After Xu Wennuan sat down, Lu Bancheng set his sights on Qin Zhi’ai and asked, “Then… what about this lady?”
