Lu Jingye held her hands and said as they walked, “This private restaurant is very famous. It only receives a few customers each day, but the food here is delicious.”
While walking, Zi Yi checked out the interior and asked, “Why don’t I see other customers?”
Lu Jingye suddenly looked at her. “I am acquainted with the owner. Having heard I had made a reservation, he pushed back the reservations of other customers.”
The dining area was not exactly spacious. It could at most hold two or three tables and the furniture inside appeared aged. However, those that were familiar with antiques could identify in a glance that all the furniture were real antiques.
The two of them sat down on a square-shaped table.
Zi Yi’s eyes lingered on Lu Jingye for a moment before shifting down to his suit. She then shifted and directly sat down on the bench he sat on.
Lu Jingye glanced at the bench and said disapprovingly. “You might fall.”
Zi Yi’s lips curled up. “Aren’t you here with me?”
Lu Jingye suddenly turned silent and an inexplicable feeling surged in his heart.
He discovered that he liked it whenever she said things that implied her complete trust in him.
Zi Yi lifted her hands and pulled the lapels of his suit. “You’re still dressed so formally on a date with me. It’s really uncomfortable to look at.”
Lu Jingye looked down at her fingers that started to move around. He held onto her fingers, pried them off his clothes, but did not release them and said seriously, “I’ll pay attention next time.”
Having her hands wrapped in the palms of his hands, Zi Yi could feel the warmth transmitted and she looked at him with a smile.
Just then, footsteps came from outside.
Very soon, the owner appeared at the door with a tray of food in his hands.
Zi Yi took advantage while Lu Jingye looked towards the door and leaned over to give him a kiss on his lips.
The bald-headed owner who took a step inside had subconsciously retreated.
Lu Jingye’s deeper-than-normal voice sounded. “Serve the dishes.”
Only then, did the bald-headed owner come in and serve the food.
When that happened, Zi Yi had already sat back in her original seat.
She greeted the bald-headed owner’s sneaky peek with a calm expression.
The owner hastily looked away and introduced the dishes before he left immediately.
“Hehe…” Zi Yi could not hold it in and laughed as she picked up the chopsticks. “The gaze the boss looked at me with earlier seemed as if he was looking at a monster.”
She then quirked her eyebrow and asked, “You’ve never brought a woman out to eat alone in the past?”
Lu Jingye filled her bowl with some dishes, and she ate them with relish. “Yummy.”
She reciprocated the favor. “You should eat too.”
The bald-headed owner standing outside was shocked.
When the woman beside him saw him staring blankly, she nudged him. “What’s wrong?”
The man glanced at her and he revealed a complicated expression. “Ershao has taken a fancy to a woman.”
“He’s a man. If he doesn’t like women, is he supposed to like men?”
The bald-headed man’s expression darkened. He hastily glanced at the door, suppressed his voice, and said, “What nonsense are you spouting? I’m only expressing my surprise. Ershao Lu, who doesn’t seem to be interested in women, has unexpectedly fancied a young lady… How dare you even say that he likes men…”
Lu Jingye was considered their godchild and they had seen him rejecting his admirers one after another. It was only because of this that he had such a reaction.
The woman shrugged her shoulders, thinking that she hadn’t said anything wrong. “It’s your words that are ambiguous alright.”
The bald-headed man fell silent.
The woman could not stand it anymore. “Isn’t it great that he has a woman he likes? What are you standing here and looking at them for?”
“You don’t understand.” The bald-headed man stroked his head and lowered his voice further. “I’m worried Old man Lu might not like the woman Ershao fancies.”
The woman suddenly stopped talking.
