I’m A Baller - Chapter 31
Translator: Nyoi-Bo Studio Editor: Nyoi-Bo Studio
Nobody wanted to poke fun at Wang Yan. At least, that was how it seemed.
There were only a few games to be played at the karaoke place. In the end, they finally decided on Truth or Drink.
Everyone took turns to ask a question, and the person asking the question could choose anyone to answer it. If the chosen person didn’t want to answer, they would have to drink, and if they had answered the truth, the person who asked the question would have to drink.
If the question was tough and the answer was truthful, everyone else would have to drink.
Wang Yan Had only been to karaoke twice, so he didn’t know of such a game. However, from the looks on their faces, he knew that they were up to no good.
‘Tsk! What am I afraid of? I have the cash.
‘Bring it on!’
In the end, the people who joined the game were Lu Yuanyuan, Liu Li, Wang Xue, Reyi Nawu, Fu Yushi, and Wang Yan.
‘Have I realized something?
‘Damn it, all of the five girls were Liu Li’s friends. This is a classic setup!’
Things were getting interesting.
Wang could feel his excitement bubbling from within. Even his eyes lit up.
Lu Yuanyuan started the ball rolling. It was no surprise that he would pick Wang Yan.
“How much money do you have in your Wechat wallet? There have to be at least three correct digits for you to pass this round.”
This was only the first question and Wang Yan was already stunned.
What did she mean?
Those who had not played such games before may not have understood. The first few questions of games like this were used to verify if the person was truthful and also observe their answering habits.
The verification questions would differ from person to person, but masters of the game would be able to observe others’ behavior through the game, especially towards the end when they were slightly drunk.
Lu Yuanyuan’s intention was simple, yet not so simple.
It was easy to verify his Wechat balance. He would just have to unlock his phone.
At the same time, she wanted to use this chance to probe Wang Yan’s consumption habits and see if he was wasteful and spent money in an extravagant way.
Wang Yan may not have understood initially but he quickly realized. “It’s difficult to memorize down to the tens and ones.”
Normal people wouldn’t be able to accurately remember the exact amount in their Wechat wallet.
Wang Yan, however, had the system. Therefore, he would be able to view all his assets in a glance. Nonetheless, it would sound too fake if he were to accurately report his exact amount.
A tycoon who was able to remember his account balance down to the dollar?
Even normal girls wouldn’t be able to accomplish that!
However, that was no problem. He just had to reveal the ten thousand, thousand, and hundreds places. Was that not ok?
He immediately operated the system to transfer fifty-one thousand dollars into his Wechat wallet.
His total assets were twenty thousand in cash, 7,000 in his bank, 9,726 earned from breathing, and 51,404.78 in his WeChat wallet.
“Around 51,400 dollars.”
After replying, he opened his Wechat and handed his phone over to Lu Yuanyuan.
Lu Yuanyuan stared at Wang Yan’s phone in astonishment and drank the alcohol in one shot.
The rest were in greater shock, as there was barely anyone who had that much money in their Wechat wallet.
WeChat wallet had a maximum usage limit of one hundred thousand per year. There were service charges when transferring money, and there weren’t many chances to use the WeChat wallet for payment. It wasn’t convenient to have that much money in there.
The next person was Liu Li. She asked Wang Yan curiously, “Why do you have so much money in your Wechat wallet?”
Wang Yan smiled but didn’t answer. He took a shot instead.
Liu Li didn’t have any time to react. She was still in a daze when An Lu gasped in admiration, “Wow… that’s so manly!”
Reyi Nawu rubbed her arms as if she was freezing and groaned in envy. “I’ve been watching you guys being lovey-dovey all day…”
Liu Li finally understood. Wang Yan didn’t want Liu Li to drink the alcohol, thus he purposely hadn’t answered the question. She was embarrassed and elated at the same time. Staring at the little boy in front of her, she was grinning with smiling eyes.
The next person was Wang Xue. She asked in annoyance, “I’ll ask for Liu Li again. Why do you have so much money saved?”
Wang Yan shrugged. “It doesn’t matter where I save my allowance, does it? Isn’t it all the same?”
It was the truth.
The salary that he had acquired through breathing, was around a hundred thousand dollars at that point. To Wang Yan, that money was just his allowance. It didn’t matter where he saved it.
Compared to the rewards accumulated from his watermelon card, it was nothing.
However, to everyone else, it was unreasonable.
That was why people would say that unintentional show-offs were killer.
Wang Xue drank grimly while the other ladies clicked their tongues in astonishment.
“Wow! You’re so damn rich! Do you still have friends…?”
“I am really curious right now. How much money do you have in your Alipay account? What’s your credit limit for Huabei Ant Credit Pay?”
“Re Re, take your chance to ask!”
Reyi Nawu rubbed her palms together.
She asked calmly, “Did you visit the Capital just to buy a watch?”
Wang Yan was stunned and shook his head. “No.”
“Then what’s your other reason?”
“Drink up first, it’s my turn.”
Reyi Nawu drank her share unhappily and exchanged glances discreetly with the person after Wang Yan, Fu Yushi.
Wang Yan grinned and chose Liu Li. “Do you like me? Even just a little bit.”
Liu Li’s face was flushed red. She bit her lips and shook her head. “No.”
As she was shaking her head, she let out a chuckle and drank. Her eyes were shining brightly with slight embarrassment.
It meant that she had lied.
The girls surrounding them rubbed their arms in disgust.
Wang Yan and Liu Li were killing all the single people with their lovey-dovey interactions. They drank happily without giving a care about the others’ opinions.
It was finally Fu Yushi’s turn. She was as pretty as a goddess, and her style was fashionable but her presence was barely noticed.
She was too quiet and low-profile. When everyone else was heating up the atmosphere, it was almost impossible to find her.
It was the first time Wang Yan heard her voice since the start.
She asked the question that Reyi Nawu hadn’t had the chance to ask.
“What’s your other reason for coming to the Capital?”
“I want to experience top-notch nightclubs.”
Wang Yan had no intention to hide, as he already told Liu Li before.
It was Lu Yuanyuan’s turn again, and she was as straightforward as Lin Weiwei.
“You want to visit clubs to hit on girls?”
‘What a headache…’
Wang Yan sighed and nodded his head. “Yes.”
When it was Liu Li’s turn, she didn’t ask Wang Yan. It was obvious that she was letting him off the hook.
It was Wang Xue’s turn. She asked him, “Are you a virgin?”
He nodded and replied, “Yes!”
Everyone laughed loudly and looked towards Wang Yan with a glint in their eyes while Wang Xue happily took her shot.
It was Reyi Nawu’s turn. She smirked and asked unexpectedly, “You want to find a pretty lady at the club?”
‘What the hell!’
Wang Yan clenched his teeth while the girls were unable to control their laughter. They were staring at him expectantly.
He had nothing to lose. “I wanted to.”
“Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh!”
“Hahahaha! You’re so funny…”
Laughter, screams, and sounds of slamming on tables rang out. The atmosphere was reaching a new high to the point that it attracted the attention of Lin Weiwei and the rest.
A guy that was obviously making advances on Lin Weiwei glanced at Wang Yan and asked, “Who’s that dude? He’s really popular, huh?”
His tone was condescending and also a little jealous.
Another good-looking guy continued, “He looks pretty average?”
Lin Weiwei was actually a little fed up inside. ‘We’re only willing to spend time with him and not you guys. Shouldn’t you guys reflect on yourselves?
‘When we first met, we were really welcoming towards you guys as well, but how did it become like this?
‘Who’s to be blamed?’
Of course, with Lin Weiwei’s emotional intelligence, she would never say that out loud. She smiled and raised her cup, swiftly avoiding the questions.
“Come on, drink up! Thank you for coming over to celebrate my birthday. Let’s enjoy ourselves tonight!”
It was finally Wang Yan’s turn again. He stared at Liu Li intently. “Do you still like me now?”
Liu Li was taken aback but admitted, “Yep.”
People around them lost it immediately.
“Oh my gosh! I can’t take it anymore!”
“What are you guys doing?! There’s no end to this, is there?!”
“Little Liu Li, please wake up! Are you heading to the club to lose…? Pfft! Hahahaha!”
Even though they were teasing Wang Yan, they really admired Wang Yan’s honesty.
It was obvious that the game had been chosen to target Wang Yan, but he wasn’t angry nor was he trying to avoid the questions. He answered every question diligently and that really improved their impressions of him.
When playing truth or dare, everyone was wary of those who always avoided the questions. They could kill the atmosphere within two rounds.
In comparison, everyone was thrilled at that moment.
Fu Yushi continued Nawu’s line of questioning and asked, “Why do you want to find girls at the club?”
Being cautious didn’t mean avoiding the questions but thinking before speaking.
Wang Yan didn’t think for a very long while, but he had already rehearsed his answer once in his head.
Hence, his answer sounded extremely mature.
“I’m not purposely heading to the nightclubs to look for girls. I’ve never been to a nightclub before, thus I have a fantasy including the Capital’s nightclubs. I thought that there would be pretty girls everywhere and I might be lucky enough to have a romantic encounter with a lady.
“If I really met someone suitable, I wouldn’t mind if something happened between us. I’m even a little excited.
“But, I’m not definitely heading to the nightclubs just to find a girl. It all depends on fate.”
Wang Yan was clear in his explanations.
As girls, not all of them would understand Wang Yan’s reasoning.
But guys would understand. Most of them would have some fantasy of having a romantic encounter. It was pretty normal.
It was Lu Yuanyuan’s turn again. It was the third round.
Lu Yuanyuan was truly direct. She didn’t even bother giving Wang Yan a break before throwing him off with another question.
“Are you really that desperate?”
