I’m A Baller - Chapter 69
By the time Wang Yan returned to his room, the three girls had toured the entire place twice.By the time Wang Yan returned to his room, the three girls had toured the entire place twice.
In fact, Lin Weiwei had seen quite a few presidential suites. After all, her family was quite well-off, so there was bound to be some extravagance when their relatives and friends got married.
However, she was still shocked by how big Wang Yan’s room was. The cost of booking the room over a period of 15 days for just one person alone was already one-third of the cost of her car. Spending so generously could simply render a rich man friendless.
Not to mention Fu Yushi and Reyi Nawu, who were dizzy from their first visit to a hotel room.
Occupying 200 square meters, it was merely a one-bedroom suite. The bedroom was very big, but it did not occupy more than 50 square meters. Then, where was the rest of the area?
There was an ultra-big bathroom made of marble, a huge living room, a closet, a mini bar, an office space…
Fu Yushi took in the view quite well, but Reyi Nawu was a little dumbfounded.
It was not an exaggeration to say that it was only today that Reyi Nawu truly saw, for the first time, how rich people lived.
Just having a lunch, without deliberately flaunting their wealth, showing off or wasting money, they could easily and nonchalantly spend 10,000.
Under the premise that Lu Yuanyuan was definitely willing to stay, a suite was booked amidst total silence. For a short stay of 15 days, the room alone cost 120,000.
Even the shock she felt from the previous occasion when Wang Yan bought a watch that cost 500,000 was not as big as the shock she felt today, when she saw a 200-square-meter hotel suite with her own eyes.
After all, buying a watch could be paid with the money given by family, and a Patek Philippe watch was also very valuable. Intuitively, it felt more like a reasonable expenditure that came with an accompanying investment.
What was spent today was the actual expenditure of day-to-day life.
Eating and living manifested things that were more intuitive and easier to compare with one’s own situation.
Reyi Nawu’s family was also quite well-off. She and Lu Yuanyuan rented a small house outside. The annual rent was 50,000, and each of them had to pay 25,000 for the rent.
Her family was afraid that she would go astray, so other than the rental cost, the monthly allowance they gave her for daily expenses was as high as 3,000. They would also give her additional money to buy costlier things like mobile phones. It could be said that she was not lacking in in material things.
However, it was also important to see who they were comparing themselves with.
Today, after seeing Wang Yan’s way of spending money, she had totally conceded.
It so happened that at this moment, Lin Weiwei muttered something under her breath, “Exactly how much pocket money does this boy’s family give him…”
Fu Yushi replied her and said, “Without 500,000 a month, he can’t afford to spend so much.”
For young people, food and accommodation were definitely not the major areas where most of their money were spent on.
Reyi Nawu suddenly burst out laughing, “Which of those women who often go to nightclubs could withstand a dog’s three-in-a-row combo?”
Lin Weiwei and Fu Yushi were laughing so hard as they asked curiously, “Which three-in-a-row?”
Fu Yushi’s eyes widened as she asked, “What the hell is the last one?”
Reyi Nawu rolled her eyes at Fu Yushi proudly and said, “At least 300,000 if pregnant, no cap!”
Fu Yushi and Lin Weiwei were stunned for a moment before they suddenly lay on the carpet in laughter.
As soon as Wang Yan entered the door, he saw this scene.
Bewildered, he asked, “Eh? Sister Weiwei, Sister Shi Shi, the two of you have drunk a little too much, haven’t you?”
This time, even Reyi Nawu could not help but laugh.
The three girls laughed for a while. Reyi Nawu was the first to get up and walk to the wine cabinet.
“Doggy, we are allowed to drink the wine you have, right?”
“You’re asking for a beating,” Wang Yan retorted in a displeased manner. Waving his hand dismissively, he said, “Whatever.”
After taking a closer look at the wine, Reyi Nawu stuck out her tongue, turned around and wanted to leave.
“Forget it, forget it, they are all so expensive…”
“How expensive can it be?”
Wang Yan walked over curiously and sized them up one by one, laughing silently.
Due to the angle they were in, Lin Weiwei and Reyi Nawu did not see it. Only Fu Yushi saw it.
After tasting it carefully, she quickly figured out that the smile on his face signified the price of the wine. To Wang Yan, it was not expensive at all.
Fu Yushi could not help but walk over to the wine cabinet. And very quickly, she found the most expensive bottle of wine. These were the words written on its label, Egon Muller-Scharzhof Scharzhofberger Riesling Beerenauslese.
Fu Yushi only recognized two words. One was “Riesling”, which was transliterated as “Riesling”, a kind of expensive variety of German grape.
The other was “Beerenauslese”, which probably meant “individually selected”.
Of course, the price on the outside of the wine box made its worth very clear, 23,888 yuan.
Actually, Fu Yushi just needed to take down the wine box and she would discover that there was only an empty wine bottle in it. The hotel would never put real wine of such quality in their special suites. On the other hand, the bottle of 1996 Lafite below was the real wine and was only sold at 7,888.
But this did not stop Fu Yushi from being surprised.
A small part of it was because of Wang Yan’s financial power. It was as if opening a bottle of wine that cost 30,000 was something so casual and was not worth mentioning at all.
But most of it was because she was surprised at how well-bred Wang Yan was and how well he carried himself.
Although he did not think much of the price of the wine, he did not say things like “it’s not expensive” or “drink it if you want” like how a nouveau riche would. He was very composed and considerate, simply not like an 18-year-old at all.
All of a sudden, a feeling of self-pity arose in her heart and she felt about how unfair God could be. It came acutely and inexplicably.
In fact, if she wanted to look into this in detail, all she would reveal was the envy and unfairness that she felt as she carried thoughts like “Why is Liu Li always so lucky” and “Why do I always end up meeting those second-rate nouveau riches?”
But she did not dare to think deeply about it and hurriedly dispelled the thought.
Everyone had humane sentiments unique to them. It was normal to have any thoughts in an instant, but she couldn’t think about it, couldn’t think about it all the time, and couldn’t let herself fall into it.
She gave herself such a warning.
Reyi Nawu and Fu Yushi went over to look at the wine, but just one look and their eyes lost the sparkle. In the end, it was still Lin Weiwei who stepped forth to make a decision. She chose a German-made Riesling sweet white wine.
They did not know which winery it was from, but anyway, it only cost 998, which was very affordable.
The four of them sat on the carpet beside the coffee table as they drank. There was wine but no vegetables, and they were feeling a little bored. Coincidentally, Dave knocked on the door and came in to deliver the cards, so they asked him to get them a deck of cards as well.
There was a total of four temporary cards without name. But when Wang Yan handed them the cards, the four ladies were still unwilling to accept.
It was not until Wang Yan smiled and told them that they did not need to spend a single cent at all, and that the validity period of the cards was only 15 days, that they accepted it happily.
“I have a place to swim. How comfortable!”
Reyi Nawu was the first to receive the card and she was extremely happy.
Lin Weiwei did not spend much time at school during the holidays. In fact, she did not need it, so she glanced at Wang Yan with a spurious smile and said, “Oh? You’re giving us cards for the swimming pool? You are playing with many thoughts in your mind, Wang Wang… ”
Wang Yan rolled his eyes and directly retorted, “What do you have that is worth putting to heart? If we have to watch someone parade in a swimsuit, then there’s only Nawu worth seeing…”
He had really carried things too far in trying to offend her this time. While Nawu and Fu Yushi were laughing away, Lin Weiwei shrieked loudly, pounced on Wang Yan and started hammering him.
Wang Yan sprawled out on the carpet and grunted, “Oh my, so comfortable! Yes, yes, right there… left side, left side, two more pats on the left!”
So naughty, what are you trying to do?
Lin Weiwei was completely helpless. There was no way she could expect to win him in a fight or quarrel. After being angry for a while, even she herself found it amusing that she would feel so angry.
“When Liu Li is here, you appear composed and considerate. When she is not here, you are like a shameless dog, you’re just so annoying!”
Though that said, such a Wang Yan, on the contrary, made everyone feel more relaxed.
They were in the 18th or 19th century where everyone loved to be boisterous and have fun. Like a slippery old con pretending to be all prim and proper while sipping wine during a conversation? Such a person no longer existed.
Having fun to the extent of losing their rationality, and drinking to the extent of losing their minds, these were things that defined youth.
When Dave brought the poker cards in, Lin Weiwei rolled her eyes and suggested, “Come, let’s play something that brings us more luck!”
Yo, Miss! You have quite a vengeful mind, don’t you?
