“I’m surprised that you chose me, brother-in-law.” Huo Siqian got up slowly and wiped his hands off with a wet toilette in a gentlemanly manner.
Qin Chu looked at him with a complicated expression on his face… Then, the two of them played rock, paper, scissors.
To everyone’s surprise, Huo Siqian’s rock lost to Qin Chu’s paper.
It wasn’t psychological warfare; rather, it was plain luck…
“Unfortunately, I won…” Qin Chu seemed to have expected this, and he asked, “Truth or dare?”
“Truth.” Huo Siqian was a careful person, so he would never choose dare if he had another option – the truth was only a question, but you never knew what your opponent might ask you to do in a dare, so he chose truth without thinking.
“Same question, out of all the women here… who do you like the most?” Qin Chu stared into Huo Siqian’s eyes and asked.
Huo Siqian licked his tongue and smiled profoundly… His brother-in-law was sure interesting; it was obvious that he asked this question on purpose.
Huo Mian froze and her hair stood up a little… For some reason, she began to feel uneasy and had a feeling that Qin Chu’s question had something to do with her.
Mo Xue’er, who was drinking red wine, froze for a second before going back to slowly sipping on her wine. Yet, her heart was nervous and all over the place.
Su Yu glanced at Qin Chu and then at Huo Siqian; he knew why Qin Chu asked a question like this.
After three seconds of silence, Huo Siqian pointed at the person sitting across from him. “Without a doubt, Xue’er.”
Mo Xue’er put down her wine glass and smiled sweetly, while Huo Mian let out a sigh of relief…
Huo Siqian didn’t tell them the truth, but Qin Chu didn’t expose his lie. Truth be told, Qin Chu didn’t ask that question so he could expose Huo Siqian; rather, he wanted to exert some pressure on the latter.
Qin Chu wanted Huo Siqian to know that he knew how Huo Mian’s ‘brother’ felt about her.
Qin Chu stared at Huo Siqian for a while before finally saying, “It’s your turn to choose.”
“I choose Young Master Su,” Huo Siqian said without hesitation, and Su Yu slowly stood up…
He didn’t like being named by Huo Siqian because… It felt pre-planned. Everyone here was manipulative and chose their opponents closely, just to ask them questions that would make them uncomfortable.
After a round of rock, paper, scissors, out of pure luck, Su Yu’s paper lost to Huo Siqian’s scissors.
“Truth or dare?”
“Truth.” Su Yu was a careful man and chose truth for the same reasons that Huo Siqian did.
“Whose photo is on your screensaver?” Huo Siqian knew the answer to this question from long ago, but he asked it anyways in front of everybody.
As soon as he asked the question, everyone’s gaze fell on Su Yu…
Ni Yang, Mo Xue’er, and Yingzi, who knew nothing about Su Yu’s screensaver, had no idea who was on it. Qin Chu, Huo Mian, Gao Ran, Zhu Lingling, Wei Liao, Xiaowei, and even Song Yishi knew how Su Yu felt towards Huo Mian, so they could make an educated guess.
Huo Mian had no idea that her photo was on Su Yu’s screensaver, but after she heard Huo Siqian’s question, she began to panic, since she had a faint idea of what was going on…
Qin Chu looked down on Huo Siqian; just now, he purposely asked Huo Siqian a question he didn’t like to answer, and the latter ended up throwing Su Yu a hot potato, taking out his fury on him.
After three seconds of silence, Su Yu opened his mouth.
Everyone in the room held their breaths as they awaited Su Yu’s answer…
