The Shade bar.
Lin Xiao Jiu uncomfortably pulled at the rag on his body. This kind of clothing would reveal a bit of his butt, a bit of his chest, and it was unknown who designed it, but the degree of evil was just right.
"Sister Bai, can I … "Can you change into a new set of clothes? These clothes are way too small."
Lin Xiao Jiu placed the hair on his shoulders in front of him, wanting to cover up a large portion of his snow—white skin, but a woman called Sister Bai put it back.
"What do you know? This is what you wear when working in a place like this, otherwise, do you think that someone would care about you if you dressed up like an old woman?"
"Alright, stop but, do you think money is so easy to earn? That's how that girl earned her money, since you've decided to come, then don't be shy about it, I don't like the Sister Bai, go quickly, I have left you a good job."
With that, the Sister Bai dragged Lin Xiao Jiu to the entrance of a big private room on the second floor and proudly winked at her: "Inside, there are all these rich young masters. You just have to go in and serve them and drink with them.
Without waiting for Lin Xiao Jiu's response, he pushed open the private box's door and pushed her in.
The noisy private room instantly quietened down, and everyone in the private room raised their heads to stare at her. Lin Xiao Jiu uneasily stood at the door, and casually swept a glance at the people in the private room.
"What are you standing there for? Come here and drink." Xu Zizi sized Lin Xiao Jiu up and waved her over, signalling her to come closer.
Lin Xiao Jiu lowered the pigment, covered up all of his emotions, and walked over to Xu Zizi's side and sat down.
But why him?
How could this be … Was it him?
Lin Xiao Jiu received the goblet that Xu Zizi gave his. As he raised his head, he coincidentally saw the gaze that Huo Yan Ting was looking at his from over, and his hand that was holding the goblet tightened. His heart also started beating erratically as he anxiously shifted his gaze away, just that he did not dare to look at the man that sat opposite to his.
The moment he saw Lin Xiao Jiu, Huo Yan Ting thought that he had seen wrongly, but seeing her eyes that seemed to be trying to dodge him in every possible way, he laughed coldly in his heart.
"When were you interested in this kind of stuff?" Huo Yan Ting taunted with the corners of his mouth raised, his gaze sweeping across Lin Xiao Jiu's body. Seeing the short cloth like clothes on her body, his eyes swept across and around, but he quickly calmed down.
Xu Zizi laughed faintly, intentionally holding Lin Xiao Jiu in his arms and joking with him, "So what if he's this kind of trash, this kind of trash is pure, I like pure things. Little sister, don't you think so?"
After saying that, she placed the cup on Lin Xiao Jiu's lips, indicating her to drink it. Lin Xiao Jiu had no choice but to close his eyes and drink the wine in the cup, and when he opened his eyes again, he discovered that the man in front of her had a colder gaze than before.
She bowed her head and smiled wryly to herself.
"You like drinking so much?"
Lin Xiao Jiu, who was in the arms of another person, had a disdainful smile on his face as he pointed to the big and small bottles on the table and said: "Come, drink up all the wine here. I'll pay five times the original price to buy this wine, and then buy ten more boxes of wine. If you can't finish all of them …"
Huo Yan Ting paused, looked at the bright red liquid in the cup, laughed coldly and continued: "If you can't finish it, I'll tell Sister Bai, you aren't suitable to work in this kind of place."
Seeing Lin Xiao Jiu's face instantly turn pale white, Huo Yan Ting felt a wave of happiness in his heart. He found a comfortable position and leaned against the sofa: "You know, with our relationship with the Sister Bai, you shouldn't even think about getting a single cent from her!"
Looking at the bottles piled up on the table, big and small, Lin Xiao Jiu's lips were trembling.
With so much alcohol, if she really finished drinking, then she would have to go to the hospital tomorrow.
But when she thought about what Huo Yan Ting had said, she felt even more helpless. Meng Meng was going to start school in a few days, but he still hadn't collected enough tuition fees.
Huo Yan Ting maintained his original sitting posture, and calmly looked at her. His sharp eyes did not have the slightest bit of warmth.
Xu Zizi's beautiful eyes swept over the two of them, and he actually felt that they were rather interesting. He couldn't help but burst into laughter, clapping his hands and saying, "Right, drink it all. If you can't, don't even think about getting a single cent tonight!"
Anyway, it was just a game, they played it, and he watched.
Lin Xiao Jiu almost couldn't speak, she swallowed hard, raised her hand to wipe his ice—cold face, and said with difficulty: "I don't know how to drink."
"You don't know how to drink?"
Huo Yan Ting acted as if he had heard the funniest joke. He stood up and slowly walked to Lin Xiao Jiu's side with his hands in his pockets. "You really f * cking think we're idiots."
The distance between the two was too close. Lin Xiao Jiu could feel his warm breath on her face, and he subconsciously retreated a step.
Seeing that, Huo Yan Ting's eyes became red, as though a fire was ignited in his heart, and he instantly lost all reason. He slowly raised his hand, and poured the wine on Lin Xiao Jiu's head.
It's been five years and his personality hasn't changed at all.
He knew he would pretend to be pitiful. As long as he had money, no matter what kind of man it was, he would stick it on. Under the cover of his pure and kind appearance, he hid a despicable heart!
Bright red liquid flowed down from his head, mixed with it and slowly dripped onto Lin Xiao Jiu's thin clothes. Lin Xiao Jiu let out a soft cry, and quickly stood up to dodge it.
"I really don't know how to …"
Lin Xiao Jiu was furious beyond belief. He had wanted to explain, but when he met Huo Yan Ting's cold eyes, he swallowed his words back.
She knew that it was useless for her to explain. He still hated her for what had happened all those years ago.
"You don't have to explain anything to me." Huo Yan Ting casually threw away the cup in his hand and returned to the sofa, he leaned lazily on the sofa and poured himself another cup of wine, gently shaking the liquid in the cup, and said seemingly casually, "Whether you drink it or not has nothing to do with me, but you must believe that I will do what I say."
He wouldn't get a penny, and he'd lose his job.
Lin Xiao Jiu wanted nothing more than to spill all the wine in his hands onto Huo Yan Ting's face. Who knew how much she wanted to turn around and leave right now, but she could not, because the school fees were not enough, causing Meng Meng to be unable to register. Meng Meng was already at the age to enrol into the school, she could not be wronged by Meng Meng just because of his own incompetence.
