Chapter 385: Lu Jingye Feels That Zi Yi Looks Nicer in Pajamas Than in a Cheongsam
A few seconds later, Dou Xiangling woke up.
The moment she regained consciousness, she suddenly opened her eyes and was about to get up.
“Meng He, you… Yiyi?”
“Don’t be nervous.”
Zi Yi hastily pressed her down.
With such a big movement upon regaining consciousness, Dou Xiangling felt dizzy and nauseous.
Zi Yi said to Shadow, “Go and get a cup of water.”
There was water available in the room and Shadow soon returned with a cup of water.
Zi Yi took the cup and fed Dou Xiangling before she said, “Cousin, you were drugged and you shouldn’t move so quickly after waking up. Otherwise, you would feel dizzy and nauseous.”
Dou Xiangling drank some water and laid down. However, at the thought of how she was brought away by Meng He and how he also had intentions to do something awful towards her, she felt disturbed. She held Zi Yi’s hands and said with great difficulty, “Yiyi, did he…”
Dou Xiangling wanted to ask if Meng He had done anything to her, but she could not bear to ask it aloud. She was so anxious that she was about to start crying.
Even though she did not feel uncomfortable physically, she felt uncomfortable mentally. As a young lady from a scholarly family, the people she was acquainted with since childhood were polite and gentle. How could she have suffered such injustice?
Zi Yi held her hand and said, “Cousin, nothing happened. Just as you were brought into a room, Shadow had arrived.”
Dou Xiangling finally felt more at ease after obtaining a positive answer and her head was not as dizzy as before.
Zi Yi added, “Shadow has beaten Meng He up severely and he is still at Count Alistair’s house. The Count has promised that he would give us a satisfactory explanation tomorrow.”
She then explained what happened following that.
Dou Xiangling quietly listened to her explanation and she could not help but sigh at the end. “Sure enough, bad people do receive retribution. Ansel and Meng He wanted to plot against the both of us while Ansel was concurrently plotting against Meng He. Yet, in the end, he had been plotted against by the person he had chosen.”
It was clear that Ansel was working together with Allen and wanted to pave the way for him to win first place.
However, no matter how he plotted here and there, he never would have imagined that Allen would be plotting against him with a killer.
“Fortunately all of them have been caught.”
Dou Xiangling was a soft-hearted person in many aspects, but solely on this matter alone, she could not feel the slightest soft-heartedness for any of them.
“But… Yiyi you mentioned that the woman behind Meng He had escaped. Did you manage to capture her in the end?”
“I didn’t pay much attention to her.”
If the Count was incapable of even capturing a woman, it would only prove that the Count’s men were too lacking.
The two of them chatted for a while more and when Dou Xiangling felt that her dizziness and nauseous feeling had more or less disappeared, she sat up from the bed.
Zi Yi then asked, “Why don’t we go out and have some red wine? We can sleep better after having some alcohol in our system and in that case, your thoughts won’t wander off too.”
Dou Xiangling looked at Zi Yi’s expectant gaze and the corner of her lips finally revealed a smile as she said, “I’ve only eaten so little tonight. Compared to drinking red wine, I’m more interested in having something to eat.”
Before Dou Xiangling said anything about eating, Zi Yi did not find herself feeling hungry. The moment she said that, she also felt that she seemed to be quite hungry.
“Then let’s go and ask Ian if he has anything here to eat.”
Dou Xiangling got down from the bed and her shawl fell off at the same time, making her feel slightly cold.
Zi Yi took a look around the room and discovered that there were female pajamas prepared. Moreover, it was the kind with long sleeves and long trousers. She walked over and picked it up for Dou Xiangling to take a look. “Cousin, change into these pajamas.”
Dou Xiangling found it embarra.s.sing. “There will be outsiders around and it’s kind of disrespectful.”
Zi Yi thought about it for a moment and said, “We can both change into pajamas then. We’ll both be wearing it and you won’t find it embarra.s.sing.”
Dou Xiangling did not know whether to laugh or cry at her logical reasoning.
“This isn’t good, the host would find us disrespectful.”
“It’s better than being cold. Moreover, this type of politeness is for strangers. Ah Jing is family.”
“There’s also Ian.”
“Ian is Ah Jing’s friend. We’ll just treat him as family and that will do.”
Zi Yi headed out of the room as she said that and she planned to change into her pajamas, before she continued persuading Dou Xiangling.
In fact, the pajamas Ian got his helpers to prepare could be used as home clothing and it would not make other people feel that their attire was disrespectful.
Zi Yi soon changed into the pajamas and returned to Dou Xiangling’s room. When she saw that the pajamas on the bed still laid motionlessly there, she deliberately twirled around in front of her. “See, this type of pajamas aren’t the type that would make us feel embarra.s.sed to wear them out. Most importantly, we finally don’t have to keep our bras on if we wear this!”
Looking at Zi Yi’s serious appearance, Dou Xiangling finally could not restrain herself and laughed out loud.
How could she not know that Zi Yi did it intentionally? As she was moved by her actions, she did not try to argue back and forth as she changed into the pajamas.
By the time they came to the living room, the two men who were chatting as they drank had heard the sound of footsteps and they looked over simultaneously.
Ian was a little surprised.
Lu Jingye simply placed the wine gla.s.s to the side and looked at Zi Yi.
When Zi Yi and Dou Xiangling made their way over, Zi Yi asked Lu Jingye, “Ah Jing, do I look good in this?”
“Yes.” Lu Jingye added, “You look better than when you’re wearing a cheongsam.”
Ian who had looked away and was just about to take a sip of the red wine had nearly choked.
He looked up and stared at Lu Jingye with a burning gaze. He was honestly impressed by his skills of lying through his teeth.
However, Ian still gentlemanly said to Dou Xiangling, who was clearly a little more restrained, “The two ladies are very beautiful and you look good in anything. Moreover, I specially got the helpers to prepare such pajamas which could also be worn as home clothes.”
Zi Yi was very satisfied with Ian’s words.
Dou Xiangling covered her lips with her hand and smiled.
Ian looked at Dou Xiangling and could not help but sigh. As expected of a young lady from a scholarly family. Even if she was wearing pajamas, she still appeared like an educated young lady.
On the other hand, Ian felt that Zi Yi would look good even if she wore a rag. Moreover, she was the girl Lu Jingye fancied and so, he shall not comment on her any further.
Ian poured a cup of red wine for them and said, “Miss Dou, Miss Zi, have a taste of the wine from my winery. I guarantee that you’ll be satisfied with it.”
Zi Yi lifted the gla.s.s and took a sip.
It was indeed good. She nodded her head and put down the gla.s.s before she asked, “Is there anything here to eat?”
“Yes, there is. What would the two ladies like to eat?” Ian suggested, “I just happen to have some good feed flown in today. Why don’t I get the chef to prepare some steaks for you?”
Steak with red wine was indeed a good combination.
Zi Yi and Dou Xiangling did not have any objections.
Ian made a phone call to the chef. The other party seemed to have said something and after Ian hung up the call, he said with a distressed expression, “The chef here has gone home today. Do you think any of you would be able to prepare the steak?”
The four of them looked at each other for a moment before their gazes landed on Ian.
He raised his hand and said, “I can only cook noodles.”
Dou Xiangling thought about it and said, “I’ll do it.”
“Cousin, do you know how to cook steak?”
“It shouldn’t be difficult.”
Zi Yi was silent for a moment. In this case, she could only get Shadow to do the job. She then pressed down on Dou Xianglings shoulders to stop her from getting up and said, “I’ll go.”
“Yiyi, you know how to cook?”
Zi Yi unabashedly responded with a yes.
