I’m A Baller - Chapter 30
Translator: Nyoi-Bo Studio Editor: Nyoi-Bo Studio
The official location for the birthday party was at a karaoke place under Garden Bridge called Wen Sha.
Lin Weiwei booked the place for the group before Wang Yan had the opportunity to do so.
All the food cost around 3,000 dollars even after a discount. Luckily, the booking fee was waived, and they could play from seven to midnight. On the whole, it was still quite costly, but to Lin Weiwei, it was nothing much.
Wang Yan, Liu Li, Reyi Nawu, and Lu Yuanyuan, who sat in Lin Weiwei’s car, arrived first. Wang Xue and her boyfriend went to get the cake, and even more friends would be coming.
Since there were only a few people, Liu Li dragged Wang Yan with her to give their presents to the birthday girl first.
Taking the two light pink lipsticks, Lin Weiwei rolled her eyes at Liu Li.
“Weiwei…” Liu Li acted cutely and was swinging Lin Weiwei’s arm around. “You will look good with these, definitely! Trust me!”
“Okay, I’ll put it on tomorrow!”
Lin Weiwei was too dizzy from all the shaking and admitted defeat.
Regarding Wang Yan’s present that was close to 3,000 dollars, Lin Weiwei felt another wave of headache.
“Are the two of you out to torture me? Forcing me to become more like a young lady? Okay. Aren’t we watching the flag-raising ceremony tomorrow? I’ll become a true young lady then. If we don’t get 100 photos, none of you will get to leave the Capital!”
“What does that have to do with me?”
Wang Yan felt wronged.
“San Wang said you would definitely like it… To me, I prefer your current perfume. It’s really elegant and suits you well.”
After Wang Yan betrayed his partner, he went over to Lin Weiwei and took a few sniffs, acting like he was praising her scent.
Lin Weiwei stared at him with her eyes wide open for five seconds before gritting her teeth and clenching her fist.
“I have not put on any perfume after bathing. That’s the smell of Head & Shoulders shampoo!”
The three girls beside her burst out laughing. Liu Li was also laughing so much that she became weaker and was lying on Wang Yan’s body.
Wang Yan had the incubator working and could still nod without changing his facial expression.
“That means you’re a natural beauty who doesn’t require perfume to smell attractive. How about you return the perfume and I’ll buy you two boxes of Head & Shoulders shampoo?”
Liu Li and the rest were about to get up but fell right back down after hearing that.
“Oh my gosh, I think I’m losing oxygen from all the laughing…”
Lin Weiwei left in a fit and Reyi Nawu came to ask instantly, “Where are you headed?”
“I’ll leave the perfume in the car first and come back to beat him up so that I don’t have to worry that he’ll want the present back!”
Liu Li kept laughing and touching Wang Yan’s chest. Her original intention was to pound on it, but she was weak from all the laughing.
“Look at how agitated Weiwei is right now because of you… Haha!”
Wang Yan conveniently placed his hand on Liu Li’s ant-sized waist, mumbling, “You were the one who picked out the perfume. If I had decided, I would have given her Chanel No. 5 and there would have been no problems at all.”
A man’s head and a lady’s waist were places that should not have been touched unless both were in a relationship.
Liu Li was laughing so much her legs were giving out, so Wang Yan held her waist.
“I’m afraid that you’ll fall.”
“I’m fine. Release your hand!”
“Shh… Don’t let the two of them hear it.”
Liu Li had just remembered that there were two other people in the room and felt a sudden surge of energy. She snuck out from under Wang Yan’s arm and sat on a sofa in a corner of the room.
Lu Yuan Yuan and Reyi Nawu kept adding salt to the wound as they walked over to Liu Li, murmuring something that Wang Yan couldn’t hear.
Wang Yan couldn’t do anything to salvage the situation. The consequence of saying the wrong thing was that he wouldn’t be able to hook up with her. He would remain forever alone and quiet.
Luckily, Lin Weiwei returned quickly. Wang Xue and Han Luzhou carried the cake to the karaoke place as well, while the waiter brought snacks and beer before they could start partying.
At approximately 7:40, Lin Weiwei’s friends started strolling in one at a time. Some of them were classmates while others were relatives.
Wang Yan finally found the opportunity to walk towards Liu Li again and initiated a conversation. “Hey, are you from the same class as the rest of them?”
Liu Li was cooperative and explained in a serious tone, “No, Weiwei does international dance and Yuan Yuan does modern dance. Wang Xue, Han Luzhou, and I do classical dance, but we’re all in different classes. Nawu is in folk dance.”
“Then how did you guys get to know each other?”
“It’s quite complicated, but I would say it’s fate!”
“Just like us?”
“What’s fated with you?!”
Liu Li stared for two seconds but ended up laughing.
“Not only are you thick-skinned, but your ability to grasp opportunities is also quite good as well. You’ve dated before!”
“Here’s my phone. You can check!”
Wang Yan arrogantly unlocked his phone and passed it to her.
“If you find a photo of any other girl apart from you in my album, you can scold me all you want!”
“Why would I scold you? Punk!”
Liu Li couldn’t hold in her laughter again and locked the phone before handing it back to Wang Yan.
“I won’t check. I’m not that possessive!”
Wang Yan placed the phone in between them and grabbed two bottles of beer.
“Come on, let’s give a toast to our small yet significant meeting!”
Liu Li’s face blushed and didn’t reply, but she took a sip from the bottle.
Wang Yan laid against the sofa and placed both legs on the small table without talking.
His action was a little unglamorous, but it kept Liu Li at the edge of the sofa. His body language was clear—you can go out from the other side, but no one can come in from my side.
Liu Li took a glance at Wang Yan’s Hermes sports shoe and blinked her eyes. Without talking or moving, she took another sip of the beer.
It was quite unsightly for a girl to drink directly from a beer bottle.
However, Liu Li’s actions looked elegant and natural. There was a rhythm to it, and when she raised her head, her neck was long and straight, just like that of a swan.
Wang Yan looked at her and whenever she took a sip, Wang Yan would do the same.
Both of them just stayed in their little corner, looking at the people in the main area drinking and partying.
There were seven to eight new people and all of them were surrounding Lin Weiwei. They were passing her gifts, saying their wishes, or just greeting her.
After all the greetings, it was officially time to drink, and the two of them in the corner were catching eyes.
“Hey? Isn’t that Liu Li? Who’s the guy beside her? He looks new!”
“F*ck! That guy remembered Liu Li? No? Then who brought him? He went for the prettiest one right away?”
“Wow, this is the first time I’ve seen a new guy at one of Weiwei’s parties. What is going on?”
There were quite a few people from the Capital who liked to make jokes and liven up the party.
As for ill intentions, it was still hard to tell.
“The two of you, come and drink!”
Lin Weiwei waved and ushered them to come over. She casually introduced him, “Wang Yan, Liu Li’s friend.”
Okay, one sentence was all it took for the rest of the guys to lose hope.
She had brought him there herself. What opinions would they have?
There were five new guys and four new girls, with one of them on the goddess level, two handsome guys, and a young master.
He didn’t know if they were all students at Capital Dance.
Lin Weiwei didn’t introduce them to Wang Yan, which meant they probably wouldn’t be getting too close.
After three rounds of toasts to the birthday girl, it was free time. Those that wanted to sing could go and sing, whereas those who wanted to drink more could do so as well.
Wang Yan was about to back away so that he could flirt with Liu Li again, but he was stopped by Yuanyuan.
“You aren’t allowed to leave! The poker game hasn’t ended. Come on, let’s continue!”
Wang Yan turned back to find Lu Yuanyuan, Reyi Nawu, and Wang Xue staring at him. The two girls that had just entered also wanted to try, while the b*stard, Han Luzhou, was obviously watching the fun as he waited patiently for the scene to unfold…
Oh no, had he fallen into a trap?
Wang Yan tried to negotiate, “Can you give me Liu Li instead?”
“She’s with us.”
Wang Xue hugged Liu Li tightly as if to seek revenge for her.
“If you’re unable to fulfill our requests tonight, Liu Li will return to her dormitory!”
Wang Yan’s eyes lit up. “What if I satisfy your requirements?”
Lu Yuanyuan slammed her hands on the table. “I’ll decide! Tonight, I’ll lock the both of you in a room. The rest will be decided by you!”
What the heck!
Such great news?!
