I’m A Baller - Chapter 25

Wang Yan was slapped in his arm again out of nowhere, producing a crisp sound.
“Why are you hitting me?”
“What are you thinking about? Must be something bad!”
“Pfft! As if you can read my mind!”
“I can tell what you’re thinking about!!”
“Tell me then!”
“I don’t want to! I know what you’re thinking about anyway!”
“Tell me! If you’re right, I’ll admit it.”
“Screw off! Annoying prick!”
Liu Li was getting annoyed by his teasing. Who wouldn’t be able to guess the dirty thoughts that Wang Yan was having? But she wouldn’t be able to say that out loud.
At the end of her wits, Lin Weiwei called, “Liu Li, where are you guys? I’ve parked my car…”
“Let’s meet at the main entrance of the Intime Department store! We’re done!”
“What the heck! Are you two wizards?”
As they gathered, Lin Weiwei cursed once again.
Liu Li whispered, “I’m not, but the little puppy is!”
“This is my first time seeing someone who shops like this. He took a look around the shops and if there weren’t any clothing that caught his eye, he would just leave the shop. He wouldn’t even take the time to try on clothes unless he had some interest in buying. Every shirt that he had tried on, he bought. He took a total of 15 minutes to shop at eight different stores.”
“Wow!” Lin Weiwei was appalled. “I’ve never seen someone so straightforward!”
Liu Li nodded her head repeatedly in agreement. “I know, right?! What’s the fun of shopping for clothes like that?”
Lin Weiwei took a glance at her hat and the sunglasses perched on them. She scoffed, “Please! You guys are already wearing couple hats. Who are you kidding?”
Liu Li lowered her cap in guilt. “The sun is really bright… It’s all your fault! Why didn’t you bring an umbrella out? You know that I never accept presents from guys!”
“Yes, yes, yes. It’s because those guys aren’t your little puppies, isn’t it?”
“Screw you! He’s just a junior! A junior, do you understand?”
“Alright. Since he’s just a junior, you better not panic when the other girls are bullying him. Let me tell you, they’re all waiting to see him in person!”
They were bickering the entire way.
Wang Yan wasn’t bored at all. The two ladies walked side by side, their slim bodies and long legs a feast for the eyes.
Returning to the car, Wang Yan took the backseat and started unboxing his items.
He kept the receipts and the items themselves while throwing everything else away. He swiftly packed everything into his duffel bag.
The cheap clothing that he had worn previously was thrown right in the trash. He was now wearing Hermès, carrying a Louis Vuitton bag, and a pair of Armani sunglasses was resting right on his nose. He looked clean and refreshed. He had officially turned into a fashionista.
The only exception that he wouldn’t throw away was the Patek Philippe box. Including another two pairs of shoes, his bag was almost filled to the brim. It was obvious that he hadn’t wasted this trip.
On the way back to the dorm, the two ladies were still chatting. Wang Yan didn’t interrupt and sat there quietly, deeply engrossed in his thoughts.
It was nothing serious, just about the system.
He could reach level 6 in the system by Monday, but it would be difficult to make it to level 7.
If everything was successful, his watermelon store would generate a revenue of one to two million dollars. That would be a measly amount.
The experience points that he needed to increase from level 6 to level 7 would at least be three to four million.
‘That’s fine. No matter what it is, I’ve reached a certain level. I shall peacefully indulge in whatever I want from now on.
‘Each day, I’ll earn up to fifty-six thousand dollars. If that’s considered a lot, my savings for a month would be nothing compared to what those affluent second-generation kids spend in a day.
‘But to say that that’s so little would be brazen. How many people’s annual salaries are around fifty-six thousand dollars?
‘I’ll just spend on whatever I need and enjoy myself. At the same time, I’ll continue to study and train to enrich myself. I shall live as I wish, without any burdens.
‘Eh, not too sure when I’ll be able to use that free gift I got while purchasing my underwear.
‘The wait is making me anxious.’
While he was lost in his thoughts, they had reached the campus of the Capital Dance Academy. Wang Yan took the opportunity to help her with her luggage so he could take a look around the campus.
His first thought was that the campus was really small. There were only a few buildings within the two acres of land. Nonetheless, based on the housing rates in Wudaokou, the students’ dorms could cost up to a million per person.
The second thought was… why were there so many students there during their holidays?
Liu Li wasn’t kidding when she said that the students of the Capital Dance Academy didn’t have any summer or winter breaks. Many of the students were strengthening their foundations or rehearsing for performances. Some were even in their dance costumes as they walked past them. Wang Yan couldn’t help but stare in awe.
It would be unreasonable if they still weren’t good enough…
He waited for quite some time outside their dorm before the two ladies finally made their way down. Lin Weiwei wore the same clothes while Liu Li had changed.
She was wearing a chiffon blouse that wasn’t too revealing. It only showed her shoulders and collarbone.
Her long gauze skirt covered her entire leg and hips, but she looked like a goddess.
She was still wearing flats, a white canvas shoe with a floral pattern that revealed her ankle.
She wasn’t wearing the baseball hat. She was holding onto an umbrella, and her sunglasses were placed at the top of her head.
Upon seeing Wang Yan, she stuck her tongue out and explained, “It’s too hot. It isn’t really comfortable to wear a hat.”
Wang Yan was magnanimous; he wouldn’t interpret too much like other young guys. Upon hearing her explanation, he just smiled.
“Wear it when you need it. If it’s of no use then just cast it aside. I bought it for you so that you can have more convenience. You don’t have to force yourself to use it.”
Liu Li nodded her head with great force and a sweet smile broke across her face.
Lin Weiwei, who was standing to the side, was disgusted by the affection they showed each other. She turned around and left. “Let’s go, let’s go. If you two want to communicate, do it in bed. We’re all waiting for that, don’t you know?”
When a capital lady was mad, she was no different from the ladies in the northeast region. It was best never to anger them!
They hopped into the car, and she immediately drove towards… North, east, south, west. It should have been towards the north.
The capital was known for its heavy traffic and traffic jams. They had stopped multiple times along the way. When they finally found a parking space, Wang Yan was famished.
He lifted his left hand to take a look at the time. Attention—the emphasis was on him checking the time on his watch and not his phone!
Wang Yan finally knew how it felt to check the time using a watch… It was the feeling of hunger.
It was now 1:30 p.m. in the capital. He had woken up at 6 a.m. and only eaten a bowl of beef noodles in Gujiao. If it wasn’t for the mandatory posture that he had to keep in check, he would have been lying on the ground, tired as a dog.
Lin Weiwei noticed Wang Yan’s actions and gave him a thumbs up. “Handsome!”
‘Handsome, your face!
‘I will call you my older sister. Can you at least provide me with two buns to sate my hunger?’
Just as he was complaining internally, his stomach was roaring like thunder.
Liu Li was desperately trying to hold in her laughter as she pushed Wang Yan from the back, whispering, “You must be starving. I should have bought you a croissant at the bakery in the Intime department store…”
“Don’t worry about it. I’ll make sure to eat until Weiwei goes bankrupt today!”
The name of the restaurant was something fresh, and it was a place to eat seafood. In the lobby, there was an entire row of fish tanks and aquarium chillers that contained all kinds of live seafood.
Walking inside and pushing open the door to the private room, there were three ladies and a gentleman present. They immediately started to wave excitedly at Weiwei and Liu Li when they saw the two of them.
“Birthday girl, you’re finally here! I’m so hungry that I developed new double eyelids from weight loss…”
“Little Liu Li, come over here and give me a hug!”
“Weiwei, happy birthday.”
“Wait a minute! Let’s catch up later—who is this young man? Introduce him to us!”
Lin Weiwei smirked and stood together with the rest. She opened her arms and directed them to Liu Li.
“Here you go, little Liu Li. Take the stage and begin your performance!”
