Translator: Nyoi-Bo Studio Editor: Nyoi-Bo Studio
After several rounds, Su Qianci had lost a lot. Qin Shuhua could no longer watch that, said she was tired, and returned to her own room, asking Tang Mengying to teach Su Qianci.
Tang Mengying took Qin Shuhua's place and started to instruct Su Qianci, which Su Qianci did not feel good about. And indeed, under Tang Mengying's guidance, Su Qianci had lost all the money that Qin Shuhua had won.

Having lost so much money, Su Qianci had figured out the basic rules. However, after they started another round, she still felt a bit confused.
When Su Qianci was hesitating how to play, she suddenly heard a deep voice behind her say, "You've won."
Su Qianci was dazed, looking down at her tiles, but she did not understand how she had won. At this time, a hand reached for her tiles from behind. When the hand approached her, Su Qianci suddenly felt a wave of male hormones as temperature around her rose. She could feel his breath next to her hair…
