Chapter 314: Piercing Through Huo Yingcheng’s Heart
“What do you want to eat?”
With her gaze still upon Huo Yingcheng, next to her He Niancheng edged close to her ear and asked this.
There was an unintentional seductive quality to his raspy and deep voice.
As the hot air entered her ears, she felt an itchy sensation on the tip of her heart.
She subconsciously squirmed. “Anything will do.”
This ambiguous action made Gu Qingmo and Huo Yingcheng feel their heart congest.
Huo Yingcheng picked up the menu, and after rolling his eyes, started to order the food.
Gu Qingmo, too, turned his head and quietly looked at the menu.
He Niancheng reached out to pick up the menu from the waiter by the side, then placed it before Gu Qingjiu. “Just order whatever you wish to eat.”
Honestly speaking, the way He Niancheng was behaving made Gu Qingjiu feel overwhelmed with honor.
In the past, she was used to a cold and aloof Chief Instructor, and now the warmth that he was occasionally exuding felt surreal.
Although his tone and the way he spoke didn’t much change, Gu Qingjiu was still able to detect certain subtle differences especially after they both started dating each other.
Before they had started dating, it was impossible for the Chief Instructor to even get close to her.
Much less behave in such an ambiguous manner.
Although her eyes were staring at the menu, she could clearly feel He Niancheng’s breath falling upon her.
They were way too near.
Although her eyes were on the menu, Gu Qingjiu’s heart was a jumbled up mess.
She had no idea what the hell was written on the menu.
She didn’t know that the Chief Instructor could behave in such a fatal manner.
He pointed at a meat dish with his fair and slim finger. “This is not bad. Don’t you like spicy food? Mm?”
That “mm” was said in a deep tone and brought about an itchy sensation to one’s heart, making one’s bones feel numb.
Gu Qingjiu felt kind of embarrassed. After all, there were two waiters, and also her older brother and Commander Huo around.
No matter how thick-skinned she was, she couldn’t behave so ambiguously.
But clearly, He Niancheng didn’t at all care about what those people think.
With her thoughts all jumbled up, Gu Qingjiu nodded at He Niancheng’s suggestion. “Then let’s order this.”
She had no idea what exactly it was that He Niancheng ordered.
She only wished for this embarrassing scene to end.
Huo Yingcheng and Gu Qingmo couldn’t bear to look anymore.
They unanimously tossed the menu onto the table. “I’m done ordering!”
Next, they ordered the dishes in a ferocious manner, as though they were carrying out a massacre.
Huo Yingcheng ordered whatever was most expensive, whilst Gu Qingmo was more toned down. However, it was evident that the scene they witnessed earlier affected him quite greatly.
He ordered a bottle of the most expensive wine.
‘Damn it. If you want to display affection in public, you need to pay the price for it!’
He had originally planned on being polite and just ordering a few dishes, but now he couldn’t hold it back anymore.
Looking at this, Gu Qingjiu immediately understood…
That the person footing the bill was the Chief Instructor.
However, he nearly didn’t even look at the other two in the eye properly. It was like all he could see was Gu Qingjiu. “What else do you like? One dish wouldn’t be enough.”
Huo Yingcheng was speechless.
Was the food he ordered not food?
He didn’t order that much to finish by himself.
The extremely embarrassed Gu Qingjiu cast a glance at her older brother who wore a look of disdain. She then lowered her head and said, “Enough, Chief Instructor. Commander Huo has ordered so much already. It’d be a waste if we can’t finish later.”
“That’s his business.”
That one sentence pierced right through Huo Yingcheng’s heart.
