Chapter 184: He Didn’t Use to Be Like This
Yan Shaoqing, sitting beside her, frowned a little.
Gong Zeli put his glass down and said coldly, “I’m going to the washroom.”
He then strode out of the private room quickly.
Yan Shaoqing looked at Shen Rou, then at Mo Yesi and Qiao Mianmian. His brows were even more furrowed now.
If Qiao Mianmian had just been speculating before this, she could confirm her guesses by now.
Shen Rou was being deliberate.
Qiao Mianmian understood Shen Rou’s hostility now.
She… liked Mo Yesi?
Besides this reason, she could think of no other.
But Mo Yesi didn’t seem to know about this?
Qiao Mianmian intuitively glanced at the rest of them but realized that Mo Yesi was looking at her.
He smiled warmly and held her hand. “Are you hungry yet? What would you like?”
Before Qiao Mianmian could respond, he got the waiter to hand them the menu.
“Order a few dishes that you like.” Mo Yesi stuffed the menu into her hands. “Third Yan is paying for tonight. Don’t go easy on him, you can pick the expensive dishes.”
Yan Shaoqing was speechless.
He really forgot about his buddies once he was married.
What an ingrate.
Qiao Mianmian was speechless.
Mo Yesi saw how stunned she looked and gave her a pat on the head before saying sweetly, “Order my share too.”
Qiao Mianmian glanced at Shen Rou, who had practically gone pale. She quietly said, “Hasn’t Shen Rou ordered some for you? I-I don’t even know what you like.”
She felt like Mo Yesi was being deliberate too.
He hadn’t even said a thing since Shen Rou’s string of sentences.
And now he was making her order his food.
Was he trying to give Shen Rou a slap to the face?
Mo Yesi smiled. “Whatever you order, I’ll take it. I like whatever you pick for me.”
With that, Shen Rou’s expression fell even more.
This was not all.
Mo Yesi then looked up at Shen Rou and said casually, “People change. I don’t like eating chopped chili pepper fish anymore.”
Qiao Mianmian was speechless.
Was he trying to anger Shen Rou to death?
This was too embarrassing for her.
Weren’t they childhood friends, did he have to do this?
“Oh, r-really? I thought… you still liked it.” Shen Rou’s fingernails dug into her palm as her smile stiffened.
It was extremely evident that Mo Yesi was protecting Qiao Mianmian.
At this point, Shen Rou felt aggrieved and upset.
She knew Mo Yesi well.
He had never been the sort to care about others’ feelings, much less protect them.
He was a cold person and tended not to be overly intimate even with close friends.
She had known him for over 20 years and was rather “special” compared to all other women in his life.
But this special treatment was nothing compared to what this girl had.
He didn’t like to be in contact with women and would even have an adverse physiological response.
But Qiao Mianmian could touch him.
And he actually defended Qiao Mianmian so openly, when it was never in his character to do so.
He’d embarrassed her for this girl he’d barely known for a while.
He never used to be like this.
Why did he change entirely after he got married?
