Chapter 72 – Meeting an Acquaintance in a Restaurant
"Yunxi, look there’s a couple over there proposing!" Ye Fan said excitedly.
Bai Yunxi glanced back and said, "Well, yeah. A marriage proposal."
"It’s too old-fashioned to propose with roses!" Ye Fan said with disdain.
Bai Yunxi: "…" The other party is not as innovative as you, holding a bunch of candied haws on the way, and actually eating half of them.
"Hey! I can’t believe it’s so easy to say yes, this woman is so easy to cheat!" Ye Fan couldn’t help but pout.
After the woman agreed to the man’s request, the two people happily embraced and kissed together.
Blessed applause rang out in the restaurant.
Ye Fan frowned sullenly, his face stinky. "This man is so tacky, yet he succeeded so easily." He is so handsome, why is it so difficult to chase after his wife? Obviously, he and Bai Yunxi are a match made in heaven.
Bai Yunxi ate the foie gras calmly, and said, "Radish and green vegetables, each has its own preferences, some people like tacky ones."
Ye Fan opened his eyes wide and looked at Bai Yunxi, "What about you, do you like tacky ones, too?"
Bai Yunxi looked at Ye Fan’s clear eyes and nodded, "Yes! I also like tacky ones."
Ye Fan flickered his eyes and said, "It looks like I’m going in the wrong direction. I should be a little tackier in the future."
Bai Yunxi: "……" A little tackiness is right, he doesn’t want to get so much attention!
Ye Fan leaned down, lowered his voice, and said to Bai Yunxi, "The woman at the next table next door has taken a fancy to me and kept staring at me. Promise me quickly! Otherwise, I will be abducted by others."
Bai Yunxi laughed coldly, "You think too much, people just look at you and think you eat in a comical way."
"You don’t know, the way that woman looked at me was very unusual," Ye Fan vowed.
Bai Yunxi secretly said: I can see it. "That’s the usual dislike."
Ye Fan said inexplicably: "Dislike? Why does she dislike me?"
Bai Yunxi shrugged and said, "Because you are disgusting at first glance!"
Ye Fan: "…"
The two waiters stood aside and whispered, "That customer over there ordered dozens of dishes, what a local tyrant!"
"Are you sure he’s a local tyrant? When he asked for a drink just now, he ordered Coke and Sprite. That’s fine. But he even asked me if we had Wahaha Milk. Looking at the price on the menu, did he miss two 0’s? In this case, when it’s time to pay, he should be shocked!"
"Don’t worry, this guy can’t afford it, but the one opposite him is a rich guy, wearing a limited edition Vacheron Constantin model that costs several million!"
"Could it be A-grade? If he is really rich, why don’t they get a box?"
"It shouldn’t be A-grade, the gloss of the high imitation is not that good."
"Ye Ling, what are you looking at?" Bai Qinghe couldn’t help asking when he saw Ye Ling’s expression was different.
"Nothing!" Ye Ling never expected to see Ye Fan in this place in the capital. Ye Fan’s upstart behavior made her feel extremely humiliated. Ye Ling subconsciously wanted to distance herself from Ye Fan.
Ye Ling is Ye Fan’s cousin and has been excellent in both academics and character since childhood.
Ye Fan and Ye Ling stand together in contrast, just like the contrast between a dog and a peacock.
Bai Qinghe turned his head and saw Ye Fan. Ye Fan was so conspicuous that more than half of the people in the restaurant noticed him.
When Bai Qinghe turned his head, Ye Fan was rolling a large bowl of pasta and sweeping it away.
Ye Fan opened his mouth and stuffed the pasta into his mouth. Ye Fan’s cheeks were bulging, like a hamster!
"This guy has such a good appetite!" Bai Qinghe couldn’t help saying.
Bai Qinghe is also considered to be part of the Bai family, but they are just distant relatives, and his relationship with the Bai family is not too close.
"Forget it, don’t look at it, it’s just a nouveau riche, nothing to see!" Ye Ling said.
"Huh?" Bai Qinghe let out a small gasp in surprise, and Ye Ling asked a little puzzled, "What’s wrong?"
"It’s nothing, it’s just that the person next to this upstart is a bit like my noble cousin, but my cousin is withdrawn and arrogant, so it’s impossible to appear in such a place." Bai Yunxi was holding a glass of wine, half covering his face, Bai Qinghe didn’t see too much of it.
"The cousin you are talking about is the Third Young Master Bai?" Ye Ling couldn’t help but ask.
Bai Qinghe nodded, yes, although they were both surnamed Bai, a branch line like him couldn’t compare to a direct line like Bai Yunxi.
Ye Ling’s thoughts went up and down for a while, Bai Yunxi seemed to have been to Cangcheng some time ago, but unfortunately, she missed it.
Ye Ling happened to hear her parents say that this cousin, a mud that couldn’t support the wall, actually tried to hit Bai Yunxi’s idea, and while Ye Ling thought Ye Fan was ridiculous, she was also a little worried that Bai Yunxi would be angry with the Ye family.
Fortunately, Bai Yunxi soon left Cangcheng, and her cousin was also expelled from the house. Ye Ling was not very clear about what happened later.
Ye Fan turned his head left and right, and a pair of men and women dressed in expensive clothes looked in the direction of Ye Fan and Bai Yunxi.
The two men stared at the two for a while and walked straight over. "Yunxi, you guys are here too!" Zhu Xueying said.
Bai Yunxi frowned, meeting his big brother and sister-in-law in a dinner place somehow gave Bai Yunxi a feeling of being caught red-handed.
Zhu Xueying nodded at Ye Fan and said, "Young Master Ye, long time no see."
Ye Fan nodded and said, "Long time no see, you guys came here for dinner too?"
Zhu Xueying nodded and said, "Yes!"
"Ah! You came so late, I’m afraid there are no seats left, do you want to come and share our table?" Ye Fan asked.
Bai Yunxi couldn’t help frowning, and was about to speak, but Bai Yunjin had already answered, "Okay! I was worried about what I was going to do when I came so late and there were no seats left!"
Bai Yunxi rolled his eyes and secretly said: His eldest brother has a special box here, how could he be worried about not having a seat?
"Young Master Ye, where are you doing these days?" Bai Yunjin asked.
"Me? Just messing around! Yunxi doesn’t let me go out to do business recently, and insists on eating soft rice! Actually, I don’t like to eat soft rice either, but Yunxi insists on me eating it!" Ye Fan said with sadness.
Bai Yunjin glanced at Bai Yunxi, Bai Yunxi raised his hand, and called the waiter again, "Two more bottles of red wine."
Bai Yunxi rolled his eyes, he was out of his mind to follow Ye Fan out to eat on Valentine’s Day.
"What is this?" Zhu Xueying asked, looking at the candied haws on the side.
"Oh, it’s a gift I prepared for Yunxi, but he only knows how to ignore me in meetings, so he gave me half of it to eat," Ye Fan said with grievances.
Bai Yunxi held the champagne and smothered it in one gulp! Ye Fan, this idiot!
Zhu Xueying looked at Bai Yunxi and said, "Yunxi, today is Valentine’s Day, a rare occasion, you should not always be so hardworking."
Bai Yunxi: "…"
"How is that possible?" Bai Qinghe couldn’t help widening his eyes.
Ye Ling asked in confusion, "What’s the matter?"
"The eldest master of the Bai family, Bai Yunjin and his wife!" With Bai Yunjin’s status, shouldn’t he be sitting in a quiet box, leisurely choosing wine and food? How could he go to such a small place to share a table with others? Bai Yunjin and Zhu Xueying came to share a table with others, then he saw it right, the one next to the nouveau riche is Bai Yunxi!
A bit of strangeness flashed in Bai Qinghe’s heart. Bai Yunxi and Bai Yunjin both had a very high vision, and being able to get these two to treat others differently, it could be seen that the origin of this upstart was not simple.
"Young Master Ye has a really good appetite," Bai Yunjin said with a smile.
"It’s okay, it’s mainly the food here, and the portion is not big," Ye Fan shook his head and said.
Bai Qinghe couldn’t sit still, got up, and walked in the direction of Ye Fan and the others.
"Eldest Young Master Bai and Third Young Master Bai, I didn’t expect to meet you here," Bai Qinghe greeted a little excitedly.
A bit of depression flashed in Bai Yunxi’s heart. He had already tried his best to reduce his sense of presence, but unfortunately, he was still discovered by others. It was all the fault of his elder brother and sister-in-law, who didn’t sit in the private room, but had to come over to share a table with him.
"Qinghe, it’s you! I heard you’ve been doing well lately," Bai Yunjin praised casually.
Bai Qinghe couldn’t help being a little flattered, "Eldest Young Master, you flatter me. And who is this?"
"This is Ye Fan, my brother’s good friend," Bai Yunjin said sincerely.
"It turned out to be a friend of Third Young Master Bai, no wonder he looks like a talent," Bai Qinghe couldn’t help but look at Ye Fan more.
Bai Yunxi sneered in his heart, Ye Fan’s appearance was okay, but his eating appearance was too ugly, it was also a stretch for Bai Qinghe to say such words.
Bai Yunxi looked at Ye Ling curiously and thought to himself: The one Ye Fan just said who had a crush on him should be this woman.
Noticing Bai Yunxi’s gaze, Ye Ling was a little nervous, but also a little overjoyed, so she didn’t dare to respond.
"Cousin Ye Fan, I didn’t expect you to come to Beijing too," Ye Ling said.
Bai Yunxi couldn’t help but be amazed, so they were cousins after all? Ye Fan, this idiot, just a cousin, this guy actually thinks that the other party has a crush on him.
Ye Fan is a little face-blind, and in his opinion, women look all the same. He didn’t recognize Ye Ling for a while, but now that Ye Ling greeted him, he immediately remembered who this woman was!
"It’s my cousin!"
Ye Fan searched the original owner’s memory and found that the original owner admired this cousin, but Ye Ling looked at the original owner like she was looking at a gray mouse that couldn’t get on the stage.
Bai Yunxi looked at Ye Fan, and a little doubt flashed in his eyes, Ye Fan, this guy, even his cousin can’t recognize it, it’s really…
Before being expelled from the Ye family, Ye Fan was a mediocre, lukewarm person.
After being expelled from the Ye family, Ye Fan, however, quickly emerged, simply like a different person, perhaps really a different person.
Bai Qinghe glanced at Ye Ling in surprise, he did not expect that his girlfriend Ye Ling would have a kinship with Third Young Master Bai’s good friend.
The restaurant supervisor came out in a hurry, "Master Bai, why are you sitting here? The box has been prepared for you."
Before coming to the restaurant, Bai Yunjin called first, so the restaurant quickly made preparations, but after a while, he still waited left and right for Mr. Bai to come, and the restaurant supervisor was a little anxious.
The restaurant supervisor checked and found that Mr. Bai and Mrs. Bai had already come, and they were crowded at a small table with two other people. It didn’t matter. The restaurant supervisor found that not only Mr. Bai had come, but even the one who never came, Third Young Master Bai, is also here, and it seems that Third Young Master Bai has been here for a long time.
