Chapter 62 – Do You Still Like Her?
Xi Duan’s voice was very, very low. Pei Ruo Wei could only feel a vague chill running down her back. She answered honestly, “The company held a celebration banquet, and Young Master Duan got drunk.”
Pei Ruo Wei quickly reported the name of the restaurant and ended the call.
Knowing that there was someone to pick them up, Zhai Jun arranged for the others to leave first. After a while, everyone in the private room was gone, leaving only Pei Ruo Wei and Duan Shu Tong.
The young man was laying on the table, frowning slightly, his face full of unhappiness.
Just as she was thinking about it, she heard footsteps behind her, and she turned around.

A tall man strode inside. Although he was only wearing a low-key casual outfit, he was more imposing than those in suits and leather shoes. The warm lights of the restaurant shone on his expressionless face, giving off a faint feeling of indifference and arrogance.
But the moment he saw the young man, his eyes softened.
Pei Ruo Wei: …Why does something feel strange here?
She was as quiet as a cowardly chicken. She watched as Xi Duan picked up Duan Shu Tong’s mobile phone, put it in his own pocket, and stretched out his hands to help Duan Shu Tong stand up. Then he glanced at her.
Pei Ruo Wei quickly picked up her bag and hurried to follow.
She didn’t expect Xi Duan to drive here himself. Standing outside the restaurant, she silently watched as the imposing man gently helped Duan Shu Tong into the passenger seat and thoughtfully fasten the seatbelt for him.
Then he turned his head indifferently towards her, “Get in the car.”
Pei Ruo Wei: …
Without any hesitation, he got into the car.
The fragrance in the car made people sober a little bit. Pei Ruo Wei shrank behind the passenger seat and tried to pretend that she was nothing but the empty air.
When Duan Shu Tong opened his eyes, he dazedly found himself in a car. He subconsciously turned to look at the driver’s seat. He blinked in stupor for a moment and then he started to laugh. He seemed a little foolish.
“How come you came?”
Xi Duan: “To pick…”
“I know!” The young man interrupted him. He bounced in the seat from excitement, jabbing at his forehead with his index finger. “You came to pick up Miss Pei.”
Xi Duan: “…”
Pei Ruo Wei: “…” Injustice, too injustice.

Before Xi Duan had time to refute, the drunken young man asked again with a doubtful voice, “Where is Miss Pei? Why don’t I see her?” He asked as he looked around.
Xi Duan frowned slightly and tapped his fingers against the steering wheel subconsciously.
He was still thinking about Pei Ruo Wei when he was drunk? Did he really give up on her?
Pei Ruo Wei raised her hand weakly, “Young Master Duan, I’m behind you.”
Duan Shu Tong: “…Oh. Oh no. We have to change seats!”
According to his logic, Pei Ruo Wei should be in the passenger seat, and he should be in the back seat. Annoyed by the mistake, the young man stretched out his hand to open the car door.
“Duan Shu Tong!” Xi Duan said suddenly. His voice was deep and strong, with a hint of warning.
The young man seemed to be frightened. He quickly retracted his hand, and looked at Xi Duan with a lost expression.
Xi Duan took a deep breath and calmed down, “Be good. Stay seated.”
A strange atmosphere took over the car while it drove into the villa area and stopped in front of Duan Shu Tong’s villa.
Pei Ruo Wei said her thanks and got out of the car conscientiously.
The young man in the passenger seat, who was in a drowsy state, suddenly opened his eyes. Before Xi Duan could stop him, he unbuckled his seat belt and walked towards the courtyard door in a daze.
Pei Ruo Wei: “…Young Master Duan, where are you going?”
Duan Shu Tong’s face was an image of innocence, “Going home.”
Pei Ruo Wei: “…”
There was a wealth of information in this sentence. Pei Ruo Wei had to slow down to think about it. So this villa was actually owned by Young Master Duan, but he rented it out to her at a low price in the name of a friend?

Before she could fully think things through, Xi Duan got out of the car, came over, and took the young man by the wrist, “Wrong way, your home is over there.”
Duan Shu Tong looked like he had been wronged. “Oh.”
But he felt that he was right. This was his home, was it not?
Xi Duan simply left the car and led Duan Shu Tong to his home.
Pei Ruo Wei stood there and looked at the two figures hugging each other under the street lamp. For a moment, she felt as if she had discovered something extraordinary.
After returning home, Liu Zhi Fei and Cen Ning came over to express their concerns. Xi Duan asked Liu Zhi Fei to drive the car back, and then helped the young man upstairs.
It wasn’t easy getting the young man into bed.
Duan Shu Tong blushed, “Thirsty.”
Xi Duan poured a glass of water, inserted a straw and bent it towards the young man. He stared at Duan Shu Tong with a searching look, “Do you still like her?”
Xi Duan bent down. His eyes darkened.
“Pei Ruo Wei.”
