Both rest their suspicions but are puzzled as they listen to An Chuxia. Raising a hand, she asks, “Did we say we weren’t taking you in?”
“When we get in, you cannot run all over the place like a curious country girl. Otherwise, you’re going to make us lose face. Understand?” The one girl takes the make-up and applies it on like an old woman. Really, she thinks she’s a country girl? An Chuxia represses her unhappiness in her heart and nods in agreement.
Her heart is silently filled with tears. Han Qilu, you better be there, ah! Otherwise, she’ll be deemed a country girl till the end.
There is a five to six- meter walkway to get to the Atlantis entrance. On the lower right is a blue sign with the Han Group’s four characters. Seriously! Isn’t there any other establishment other than Han, Ling, and Xiao? This is too much! Doesn’t the Han group own enough real estate? What else are they involved in? Really!
However, this is quite good. It is Uncle Han’s bar. If Han Qilu isn’t around, she can look for the manager and request that person to contact their big laoda. If Uncle Han knows she can’t make it back, he’ll certainly send a car to have her picked up.
At the door stands a bouncer who takes the two girls’ VIP pass cards. He looks up and stares at An Chuxia. “Miss, please show me your pass.”
The Atlantis pass card is annually given to users in businesses of any enterprise spending more than 10 million on the Han Group. With this card, ordinary people can enjoy pleasure designated to the rich. For example, the Atlantis bar is considered high-end entertainment and recreation.
The two girls introduce her by lowering their heads and presenting her up front. The girl with the make-up smiles. “Gege, the three of us come here often to play. Today, she forgot to bring her card and going back to the suburbs will be very troublesome. It takes more than an hour.”
The bouncer is momentarily surprised when the whiny girl secretly hands him a check. He grins. “Okay! I recognize you. Why didn’t you come yesterday? Go in. Next time, remember to bring your pass.”
The girl bows and says thank you. She takes An Chuxia in. As they enter, the girl says haughtily, “You see, didn’t we get you in? Let alone, Atlantis. We can take you anywhere, right, Ou Ya?”
The girl named Ou Ya shoots An Chuxia a look. “Follow us. Don’t get lost.”
An Chuxia nods good-naturedly, and follows them closely. Going through the door, it feels like multiple eyes land on her and her two companions. They face a huge bar. She doesn’t know where to face. Why isn’t there just one bar?
Why are there ten bars? Moreover, there are sofas and tables everywhere. The whole bar is like a city. No wonder it is called Atlantis!
However, this makes locating Han Qilu a bit difficult. Following the two girls, the arrive at a free bar. A handsome bartender immediately puts his hands down and smiles, asking, “Lovely ladies, what can I make for you?”
His flattery makes An Chuxia sick in her stomach. How can a person be such a dog and say beautiful lady to all the girls? She forgot flattery was necessary for her to enter Atlantis… now comparable to the dog-legged bartender!
“We’ll take three of today’s recently launched cocktails.” The girl sits down on the swiveling bar stool. An Chuxia sits down as the bartender and Ou Ya merrily chat. An Chuxia scans the room in search of Qilu. The charming bartender puts a cocktail in front of each of them.
Ou Ya brings
the glass to her bright red lips gently, sipping the drink with class. Her eyes open brilliantly. “Tasty! There is a trace of lemon but it isn’t as sour. When you swallow, it goes down smoothly with the sweetness.” These wealthy children, their wine-tasting and luxurious toys truly sets them apart.
After Ou Ya’s description, An Chuxia is somewhat excited. She picks up the stem glass. But unlike Ou Ya, who took a small drink, she drinks all the wine in the goblet. The bartender and Ou Ya’s eyes stare in disbelief. An Chuxia blinks, puzzled. “I didn’t think the lemon had a sour taste either. Yeah, after swallowing, it’s really sweet.”
“Miss, the alcohol level in this liquor is high. Your alcohol capacity is really… really good.” He hasn’t seen such a customer who dares to drink the newly launched cocktail like water. Knowing the potential alcohol content is high, this lady shouldn’t dare drink more than three or four.
She tips the drink and raises her head. All gone! Ou Ya cradles her forehead, staving off a headache. She didn’t know this country girl knows nothing. Okay, if she gets drunk later on, she’ll pretend she doesn’t know her. Truly, she doesn’t know her.
Compared to Ou Ya, the other girl completely missed what’s happening around her. With her head down, she microblogs. She raises her head suddenly and whispers, “Young master Qilu!”
An Chuxia suddenly looks down the direction the other girl is looking. She sees Han Qilu sitting quietly in the corner, drinking. The only reason she didn’t see him was because a group of people blocked her vision. Now that they’ve left, she immediately sees him.
“How do you know young master Qilu?” Ou Ya smiles contemptuously. “Hey, country girl, while you’re inebriated, stay here.”
An Chuxia doesn’t quiet down. She jumps from the high chair. She cups her mouth like a trumpet and says, “Han Qilu! I’m here!!!”
Almost simultaneously, everyone’s eyes lock on her. Unexpectedly, the girls with her weren’t afraid of death, hoping Han Qilu engages them to smooth things over… blatantly. Does clarification court death?
“You’re an idiot, ah!” Ou Ya and the other girl hurry and clamp over her mouth despite being late. Han Qilu’s blurred and lazy vision sweeps disgruntedly toward her. Seeing the two girls hold down An Chuxia in an effort to silence her, he wakes up immediately from his alcoholic stupor.
“Well, no! Qilu… Not!” She must speak, but her mouth is tightly covered by the two women.
So she stops speaking. She looks up to see Han Qilu. This time, he stands up and walks toward them… .
