Chapter 85.1

Seeing the girl laughing and about to jump on him, Wen Chi’s face paled in fright, and he reflexively dodged left and right, trying not to let the girl touch him.

Unexpectedly, the girl found it was fun and played a game of chase with him.

In the end, Wen Chi was forced to have no choice but to stand up directly from the chair.

As soon as he stood up, he saw that Hua Zi Zang, who was two seats away from him, got up and was about to go outside, saying, “I’m not feeling well, you guys take your time, I’ll leave now.”

The others were taken aback when they heard this and quickly shouted: “Wait a minute, Young Master Hua.”

As if Hua Zi Zang didn’t hear their shouts, he walked out of the private room without looking back.

Seeing this, Wen Chi hurriedly informed Yue Zhicheng who was sitting on the other side of him and chased after Hua Zi Zang.

Hua Zi Zang couldn’t stand it anymore and didn’t want to stay in this place, so he walked very fast, so fast that Wen Chi could barely catch up with him.
He was obviously an ordinary person who didn’t know martial arts, but he was so fast that Wen Chi almost couldn’t catch up.

Luckily, Wen Chi yelled at him a few times.

When Hua Zi Zang heard him shout, he slowed down and then slowly stopped.

He did not turn around, nor did he even turn his head to look at Wen Chi.
Instead, he stared straight down the hall and said politely and detachedly, “What do you want, Young Master Wen?”

“Hua, Young Master Hua, I do have something to say to you.” Wen Chi was out of breath after chasing him and he supported the wall to take several breaths before he managed to calm himself down, “What happened last time was my fault.
I didn’t know what’s in that wooden box… Young Master Hua, I don’t expect your forgiveness, I just want a chance to redeem myself.
If you ever need my help in the future, I will definitely help you.”

Wen Chi was afraid that Hua Zi Zang would be upset and interrupt him, so he finished these words almost in one breath.

In the end, his face was red from lack of oxygen.

Hua Zi Zang heard the panting sound in his ear and suddenly understood why Wen Chi, who had always wanted to avoid the limelight, suddenly invited them to dinner with a big fanfare for his birthday, so he wanted to say these words to him.

After a moment of silence, Hua Zi Zang finally turned to look at Wen Chi.

He saw that Wen Chi’s black hair was somewhat disheveled and his cheeks were flushed, a small bead of sweat was seeping from his forehead and his chest was still heaving, looking a little embarrassed.

But his eyes were particularly bright, like the shining stars in the night sky, staring at Hua Zi Zang. 

The guilt, expectation and other emotions on Wen Chi’s face didn’t seem to be fake, instead they were so sincere that Hua Zi Zang couldn’t look at them directly.

Hua Zizang closed his eyes, leaned back a little and then sighed: “Those who don’t know are innocent, I don’t blame you.”

Wen Chi was extremely happy, but he still suppressed his excitement and solemnly apologized to Hua Zi Zang.

“I haven’t taken that matter to heart for a long time and you should forget about those unpleasant things.” After Hua Zi Zang said, he seemed not to want to continue discussing this matter, so he quickly changed the subject, “I suddenly remembered I still have some things to do, I want to go back to the Zhou Mansion.”

No matter how dull Wen Chi was, he guessed that this was just Hua Zi Zang’s excuse, but when he thought of the chaotic atmosphere in the private room, he lost his desire to go back.

So he said, “I’ll go back with you.”

Unexpectedly, after hearing this, Hua Zi Zang’s handsome face suddenly changed.
After hesitating for a while, he reminded him tactfully: “They all thought that today is your birthday.
As the birthday boy, it may not be appropriate for you to leave early.”

Wen Chi caught the embarrassment in Hua Zi Zang’s eyes and suddenly realized that Hua Zi Zang was Shi Ye’s cousin after all.
Even if his identity is different now, to be alone with Hua Zi Zang, it would be inappropriate after all.

“You’re right.” Wen Chi smiled and hurriedly said, “Then you go first, I’ll go back and talk to them.”

Hua Zi Zang seemed relieved, nodded, turned and left.

Wen Chi didn’t plan to stay any longer, anyway.
Yue Zhicheng and Liu Wen were frequent visitors to this kind of place, with him watching from the side, maybe they will still feel uncomfortable, so it’s better to leave the place for them to play freely.

Having made his plans, Wen Chi stood outside for a while before returning to the private room pretending to be nonchalant.

He thought that those people would be happily playing after he and Hua Zi Zang left, but he didn’t expect that in addition to the smell of powder in the room, he would be greeted by a room full of people staring at him as if he was a chicken,

Wen Chi was taken aback by the silent atmosphere, thinking he had gone to the wrong private room.

He hurriedly exited and tilted his head to look – Spring Garden, that’s right.

There were also familiar faces in the private room.

Wen Chi touched his face puzzled: “What’s wrong with you? Is there something dirty on my face?”

“There’s no dirt, Brother Wen is so handsome, how could there be dirt on his face?” The person who spoke was Yue Zhicheng, he suddenly laughed and then walked over to Wen Chi and very self-consciously tried to put his hand over Wen Chi’s shoulder.

Wen Chi saw what Yue Zhicheng was up to and subconsciously leaned away and calmly dodged Yue Zhicheng’s outstretched arm.
He asked with a smile: “Then why are you looking at me like this?”

Yue Zhicheng’s empty arm was stiff in mid-air, he was a little embarrassed and annoyed but seeing the bright and cheerful smile on Wen Chi’s face, he couldn’t get himself to be angry.

As the saying goes, don’t reach out to hit a smiling face1(A metaphor for not getting angry at a pleasant person), let alone a face with such a beautiful smile.

Although Yue Zhicheng was a little angry, he didn’t want to spoil everyone’s mood, so he quickly calmed down.
He put his arm down, looked at Wen Chi meaningfully and said: “Today is Brother Wen’s birthday, but unfortunately everyone found out at the last moment and did not have time to prepare anything ……”

When Wen Chi saw Yue Zhicheng’s greasy expression, it was as if he had smothered a mouthful of oil and his whole body felt sick.

At the same time, he also had a bad feeling in his heart.

“It’s okay, it’s okay, it’s not easy for everyone to go out and I don’t want anything, as long as everyone eats happily, I will be satisfied.” Wen Chi said politely.

“Hai, how can that be? This is not a cheap meal, we can’t let Brother Wen treat us for nothing.” Yue Zhicheng said.

“I can still afford the cost of a meal, so don’t feel burdened.” Wen Chi said, wanting to run away, “How about this, you continue to eat, I’ll go downstairs and pay the bill first.
After you finish eating, put it on the bill and I will replenish the money when you return.”

Yue Zhicheng was a smart man, he immediately recognized the implication in Wen Chi’s words, his eyebrows twisted into a knot: “You want to leave?”

Wen Chi “…”

Wen Chi saw that Yue Zhicheng put it out so directly, all the words he had brewed up suddenly got stuck.
He showed an embarrassed look and was about to squeeze out some words, but he was interrupted by Liu Wen who came from the other side.

“That can’t be done.
Brother Wen hasn’t received the birthday gift from us, how can he leave first?” Liu Wen went straight to the door, blocking Wen Chi’s retreat and said with a slight dissatisfaction,  “This is the birthday gift we have carefully prepared.”

Hearing this, the bad feeling in Wen Chi’s heart became more and more intense.
He didn’t hide the rejection in his expression as he politely said, “I’m a bit unwell and would like to go back first.”

Liu Wen frowned and teased, Liu Wen raised his eyebrows and teased, “Just now it was Brother Hua who was unwell, now it’s Brother Wen’s turn to be unwell?”

Wen Chi: “…”

Yue Zhicheng also persuaded him: “Yes, brother Wen, even if you want to leave, look at our gift before you leave.”

Wen Chi thought for a while and came up with a solution: “How about you guys take that congratulatory gift back with you and give it to me later?”

Liu Wen chuckled.

Yue Zhicheng held back for a long time, but he couldn’t hold back his laughter either.

Seeing that Yue Zhicheng and Liu Wen were both laughing, the others joined in.

Only Wen Chi looked at them in a daze, not understanding what they were laughing at.

Liu Wen finished laughing quickly and didn’t want to play tricks with Wen Chi anymore.
He winked at Wen Chi and said with a smile, “I never thought Brother Wen would be so greedy that he wanted to take back the top card here and I don’t know if that person will be happy about it.
…… Jia Peng, call the person in.
