After Transmigration, The Male Lead and I had a HE - Chapter 124
After Han Ming left, the lively atmosphere in the private room vanished by half and even the girls that were chatting and laughing quieted down a lot.
Su Qiuge continued to nonchalantly play on her phone. After a while, she heard the person next to her say, “Why is Qin Dongming going towards Xie Xinglin?”
Su Qiuge was surprised and realized that the atmosphere in the private box was becoming more and more solemn.
Su Qiuge put down the toothpick in her hand and slowly raised her head. And sure enough, she saw a man with a cigar in his mouth leading some people and walking towards Xie Xinglin.
Qin Dongming gestured to the person behind him and that person handed over a glass of wine. Qin Dongming spitted out the cigar butt and said to Xie Xinglin while holding the glass in one hand, “Brother Xing, we haven’t met in so long, have a drink?
Xie Xinglin, who was leaning against the seat, was currently playing on his phone. When he heard what was said, he casually raised his head and glanced at him, and then directly declined.
Qin Dongming was angered into laughter by Xie Xinglin’s indifferent attitude, but he had already expected it long ago. He beamed as he poured the glass directly in front of his face. The amber wine spilled onto the floor and some splashed onto Xie Xinglin’s clothes.
Qin Dongming smiled and said, “Oh wait, look at my memory, I just remembered that you are already no longer the precious young master of the Xie Family, instead you——”
He shook his head, the corner of his mouth faintly raised, “Are now just a pitiful man that begs everyone to introduce you to a job.
Xie Xinglin lowered his eyes and swept his gaze over the corners of his clothes that were splashed with wine, the eyelashes that resembled crow feathers hid the emotions in the bottom of his eyes.
After a while, he raised his eyes and indifferently said, “You came over just to talk nonsense?”
When Qin Dongming saw his actions of admitting in disguise, Qin Dongming didn’t feel very pleasant in the bottom of his heart. When he first arrived, he had heard those women discussing Xie Xinglin. During their childhood, Xie Xinglin was the focus of their generation, but the Xie family unexpectedly declined in wealth and status.
However, despite the changes, he actually still carried the halo that he had in the past in the eyes of these people, which made Qin Dongming somewhat unhappy.
At this moment, no one in the private room dared to speak. Everyone held their breath with rapt attention and no one wanted to step forward to be the peacemaker. The atmosphere became especially stifling for a while.
In response, Qin Dongming became even more aggravating. He turned around and said to the brothers behind him, “I’m afraid you didn’t know, Xie Xinglin’s family is in a very difficult situation right now. Last time, he even begged at my door. Who would have thought that the once arrogant little young master of the Xie family would now become so poor and in need of money? But……”
Qin Dongming fished out a wallet from his pocket and took out a thick stack of hundred yuan bills. He waved the money and then threw it in Xie Xinglin’s direction. The red bills flew in the air, dazzling and extravagant, before it fell to the ground and was soaked by the wine.
Qin Dongming smiled ostentatiously, “But considering that we once had a little friendship as kids, this brother will give you this. If you are short of money, just tell me. I have plenty, no need to be polite with me.”
Xie Xinglin’s gaze swept across the scattered bills on the ground, his fists clenched little by little. When he expressionlessly raised his eyes, the whole person appeared a little terrifying.
Qin Dongming hadn’t noticed it at all, “Quickly pick it up, otherwise Han Ming will be here later and see this, and that won’t be good. The gifts I gave him aren’t even worth as much as what I’m giving you. You tell me, aren’t I treating you well?”
When Xie Xinglin heard the words “Han Ming,” his originally clenched fist slowly loosened. The five slender fingers hung next to his body and his chest faintly heaved. The blue veins on his arms were nearly bursting out, as if he was suppressing his emotions.
When Qin Dongming saw this, he laughed, feeling very proud of himself. He was just about to open his mouth and say a few more sarcastic remarks, when someone behind him said, “please move.”
The sound was so close that it surprised him. He staggered a few steps back and bumped into the person behind him. He then unconsciously turned his head and saw the person’s arm moved. Immediately afterwards, a cup of ice cold water splashed directly onto his face.
The water was poured onto his whole body, splashing him and chilling him. In addition, his meticulously styled hairdo was destroyed and the whole person looked like a drowned rat, comical and ridiculous. The water droplets slid down his face, and for a moment, he was utterly dumbfounded.
Su Qiuge held the cup and appeared incredibly distressed, “Oh my gosh, what’s the matter with you? You bumped into me and caused all the water that I worked so hard to get to be gone.”
A few ice cubes from the water fell into his low-cut neckline, freezing him and causing his teeth to chatter. He couldn’t help but insert his hands into his clothes in an attempt to grab it out, but the ice cubes were like loaches as they slipped out. There were several people in the private room that couldn’t help laughing out loud. He also realized how embarrassing he must’ve looked. He was so angry that he threw a slap towards Su Qiuge.
“Are you looking to die?!”
But before he could do anything, his wrist was suddenly grabbed by Xie Xinglin. Qin Dongming raised his eyes and met Xie Xinglin’s gaze, only to realize that the person who originally had not spoken, had eyes that seemed to be dipped in ice at this moment, freezingly cold. He firmly held his wrist, as if, if he dared to take a step closer, he would twist his hand off.
At this exact moment, Han Ming opened the door of the private room and said goodbye to the people outside.
As soon as he came in, he noticed that the atmosphere was not quite right. Furthermore, he saw Su Quige take a few steps back with red eyes and a small wrinkled face, as if she was about to cry in the next second. Then, she pointed her finger at Qin Dongming and said in a pitiful and miserable tone that he’s never heard of before, “Big Brother Han Ming, he’s like this, I’m so scared.”
Han Ming: ??
Don’t be like this, it makes me more scared.
