I’m A Baller - Chapter 34

Reyi Nawu definitely looked good. Fu Yushi, Lin Weiwei, and Reyi Nawu were all in courtships, but An Lu was the only one trying to pick guys up. Lu Yuanyuan, on the other hand, was taking the world as an illusion and singing without carelessly.
She was trying to curry favor by showing respect for Wang Yan, meaning not only was Wang Yan unable to get mad at her, but Liu Li could also not stand to blame her. Liu Li pinched her waist and that was counted as all the punishment she deserved.
Everyone politely took another drink, and when Guo Zihao wanted to suggest playing a game again, his eyes caught sight of the reflection of light that was coming from Wang Yan’s watch.
“Brother, your watch looks nice. Where did you buy it from?”
“It’s a fake that I bought for fun.”
Although Wang Yan was wearing Hermes clothes, the room was dimly lit and it wasn’t the basic style of Hermes. Without the obvious logo visible, Guo Zihao couldn’t tell.
Guo Zihao didn’t realize that Wang tycoon didn’t want anything to do with him. He only took him for someone that came from a rural town. Considering their differences, he was interested in striking up a conversation.
“Wow! No matter if it’s real or fake, knowing how to choose a watch means you’ve got good taste!
“Let me tell you, all the people from the Capital like these items. In the past, it was flowers, birds, and walnuts. That was followed by gold and pearls. However, it became outdated among the younger generations. The younger generation should know more about watches instead!”
The youth opposite them added on to the conversation, “Yes, Zihao’s Rolex Submariner Hulk Green watch has become a priceless piece now.”
He was good at putting up a front!
Guo Zihao was feeling superior and mighty as he raised his hand to take the watch off of his left wrist. With a generous look, he passed it to Wang Yan. “Brother, look at it all you want! Do whatever you want with it. If it’s harmed, I won’t blame you!”
Reyi Nawu and Liu Li looked at each other, both feeling that the sentence was oddly familiar.
Had Wang Wang said the exact same words in the afternoon during lunch?
In comparison to Wang Yan, Guo Zihao’s attitude made people feel uncomfortable.
However, neither of them made any unwanted comments. As people who didn’t know much about watches, they didn’t understand what owning a Rolex watch meant. Nonetheless, looking at Guo Zihao’s attitude, it might have been even more expensive than Wang Wang’s Patek Philippe.
Wang Yan was another newbie and didn’t know much about watches. It was only after he decided to buy the watch that he went on to search the top ten brands of watches.
There were so many brands and styles, there was no way he could have finished looking at everything. Hence, he set the price range that he would check to be from 200,000 dollars to 750,000 dollars.
Hence, he had no recollection of any watch that had a dial plate that was green in color.
Oh, could it be some million-dollar watch from a store?
Of course, Wang Yan wasn’t a poor person. Every breath he took was a few dollars, and even if he was to buy a million-dollar watch every month, it would mean nothing to him. He would just be fooling around.
Nevertheless, even though he didn’t care much, in such a messy situation, a person in their right mind would not want to be bothered by this matter.
“No, it isn’t suitable for me to do that.”
Wang Yan rejected immediately and even leaned back a little.
Looking at how Wang Yan didn’t dare to touch it, the youth opposite him burst out laughing and took the watch before starting to play with it.
“Brother, even if this watch is sold as a secondhand, it would cost 80,000 dollars, right? Wow, it’s really pretty!”
Guo Zihao wore a huge smile that showed his arrogance.
“Of course! On my birthday two years ago, I pestered my father to find the Rolex shop that was selling it so that he could get it for me. At that time, he spent 66,000 dollars and complained it was too expensive. Now, in the official shop, it costs 80,000 dollars to buy it. Furthermore, the waiting period would be at least two years!”
“Wow…” An Lu cooperated and gave him a shocked face.
On the other hand, Wang Yan looked in the direction of Liu Li and Reyi Nawu.
Had they heard it correctly?
It was only 66,000 dollars?
Was it in euros?
It was hard to say…
The three newbies suppressed their queries and kept quiet to see how things would unfold.
Guo Zihao saw the looks that they gave him and thought that he had stunned the once calm kids. His mood became better, and he even initiated a toast to Nawu.
“Come on, Nawu, Liu Li, and Xiao Wang, let’s have a toast!”
Nawu took a sip, as she was being polite. Meanwhile, Liu Li took Wang Yan’s elbow to hint that she didn’t want to drink.
Wang Yan had to stand up for San Wang, of course, so he gave a slight smile and said, “Zihao, I’m fine with drinking, but one glass of yours to the three people that you’re toasting to wouldn’t be very appropriate, would it?”
The youth that was standing around passed the watch back to Guo Zihao. After he heard what Wang Yan said, he added, “Brother, do you think you’re some big shot?”
He used a joking tone, but this kind of person was the worst, since he wasn’t afraid of creating a scene or having others watch.
Guo Zihao’s expression changed to offended, but Wang Yan remained cool and didn’t want anything to do with him. He calmly looked at Guo Zihao for his decision.
“Brother Guo, what do you say? Are you going to toast us one by one, or should we let you have your space back?”
Reyi Nawu and Liu Li were close together, hugging each other as if they were Siamese twins. The “we” that Wang Yan mentioned referred to the three of them.
Guo Zihao gritted his teeth. “Okay! It was my bad. Here, let me give all of you a toast one by one!”
Hey, that would be easy to handle!
The first glass, Wang Yan drank.
The second glass, Liu Li followed closely.
The third glass, Nawu didn’t give Guo Zihao any time to rest at all.
The glass was a square mouth one, so three glasses were around the same amount as a bottle or even more. Drinking consecutively without taking a break was quite harsh on him.
Reyi Nawu saw that Guo Zihao’s throat was feeling a little uncomfortable and her eyes lit up. She had an idea. She took a bottle of beer and filled his glass again. “Come on, brother Guo, let me return the toast!”
After speaking, she raised her head and gulped down the glass of beer.
Guo Zihao was left with no other options but to force himself to finish the glass of beer.
Looking at how uncomfortable Guo Zihao was, Wang Yan randomly thought of what happened ten days ago at Liu Weilong’s graduation party. Wang Yan was also forced to drink by his friends to the point that he puked. The world worked interestingly.
Of course, he wasn’t going to pity Guo Zihao. He was going to go all the way in getting him drunk.
Liu Li stood up to pour beer into Guo Zihao’s glass and was about to open her mouth when she was stopped by the youth.
“Wow, junior, you people aren’t very nice by taking turns to make him drink his beer in a shot? How about this—it’ll be me and brother Guo, the two of us, against the three of you. Is that fair?”
Reyi Nawu was so angry that she was gritting her teeth and staring at him. “Li Yao, Guo Zihao was the one who sought us out to drink. To put it nicely, we’re showing him respect, but honestly, we’re showing respect to Weiwei. Who are you to stand up for him? You’re just looking for a scolding!”
What the heck was that explosive temper…
Wang Yan was impressed and saw Nawu in a different light. She was really helpful at a crucial time.
Some words weren’t suitable for Wang Yan to say, so the message could only be delivered by Weiwei’s friends.
Li Yao was speechless from her words, and his face showed an unreadable expression. It wasn’t right for him to fall out with a girl, especially when she was the girl Guo Zihao was courting, Reyi Nawu. If he scolded her, he would offend two people at once, and only a fool would do that.
After much thought, he changed his target to Wang Yan.
“Come on! Brother, I feel like I’m bullying the girls when I drink with them. You, Brother Guo and I, the three of us, will drink together instead. Don’t back out if you’re a man!”
Expectedly, Wang Yan was still called out when he stayed quiet…
Wang Yan shook his head and sighed, suppressing the urge to ask him, “Who are you to order me around?”
It was Lin Weiwei’s birthday that day. Anyone could cause a ruckus except him.
It was because he had been brought to the party by Liu Li, who he had met that day. Hence, no matter what happened, he couldn’t be the one to aggravate the situation.
Wang Yan possessed the trait of knowing gratitude and having loyalty.
Deciding that he wouldn’t cause a ruckus in Lin Weiwei’s party and also not let Liu Li be bullied by anyone, he could only play along with Li Yao.
“Okay, I’ll take the first shot.”
Raising his head, he finished another glass of beer. Liu Li felt sorry for him but also proud at the same time, as if to say, “look, my man knows how to deal with the situation so well!”
The traits that a woman looked for in a man differed for each person. The reason why Liu Li liked and admired Wang Yan was because of his generosity and humor.
He was rich but didn’t flaunt his wealth. He had the capability but remained low-key. Those were the traits that she was looking for.
People like Guo Zihao, who was showing off the bit of money he had, just seemed dumb to her.
People like Li Yao were even lower, since he chose sides and decided to butter up Guo Zihao.
After the comparison, Liu Li’s impression of Wang Yan became even better. She grabbed on to his arm and wouldn’t let go no matter what.
