Chapter 2297: Are You Drunk?
The living room had the radio on all afternoon because they were listening to the news. The volume was only reduced slightly because Jiang Yao, the pregnant woman, wanted to nap.
It was probably because the birthday girl was in an excellent mood that Jiang Yao’s nap was exceptionally long. It was as if she had opened her eyes in the blink of an eye after two hours. When she awoke, the aroma of the kitchen filled her room.
Jiang Yao was about to dash to the kitchen to see what they had done when Lu Xingzhi dragged her back and forced her to put on slippers before letting her feet touch the ground.
“The birthday gifts that Big Brother and the others sent you have arrived. There is still no dinner yet. It is fine for you to stay here. I will bring the things in for you. You can open them one by one,” Lu Xingzhi said as he turned around and left. The others had sent their gifts with Gu Haoyu, so they all arrived together. Lu Xingzhi did not want to disturb Jiang Yao’s lunch, so he kept them in the living room.
‘Why are there so many?” Jiang Yao thought there were only four. She did not expect Lu Xingzhi to bring a bunch of them in. Some boxes were taller than others.
“Chu Sheng, Sister-in-law, and the others have also sent a gift for you. There’s also a gift from Du Chen.” The items were not heavy, so Lu Xingzhi placed them beside Jiang Yao. Then he took a pair of scissors from his pocket and handed them to Jiang Yao. However, he pulled them back at the last minute.
‘What are you doing? I can open my gifts.” Before Jiang Yao could finish her sentence, Lu Xingzhi had already cut the box at the top. However, he only cut it open and did not open it to see what was inside.
‘Mom said pregnant women are not allowed to use sharp things, and kitchen knives and scissors are the worst,” Lu Xingzhi said thoughtfully. Jiang Yao knew that her hometown did have that custom, so she did not argue with Lu Xingzhi.
The gifts she received from those in Jindo City were very strange. Chen Xuyao even gave her two bottles of red wine. That guy probably had no experience giving a present to a girl, so he thought that wine was appropriate.
Lu Xingzhi said that Chen Xuyao could not get a wife because he was stupid. He was injured, and Jiang Yao was pregnant, so why would he give them two bottles of wine? Did he want them to fight?
There were many small items in the bedroom after the gifts were opened. Bracelets, bags, perfume, lipstick, and exquisite craftsmanship were on display.
Master Cheng suggested drinking some wine during dinner because he was happy. Lu Xingzhi’s response was even faster than Cheng Jinyan’s.
He opened the two bottles of wine that Chen Xuyao had sent over. Master
Cheng was full of compliments the moment he took the first sip. That made Jiang crave for some.
Jiang Yao could not stop Lu Xingzhi. Master Cheng was beyond happy when he left with the bottle.
Master Cheng and Cheng Jinnian were clearly inebriated when the Cheng family left. Their steps were light, and Madam Chengs cheeks were flushed from the alcohol.
When Mrs. Jiang sent them out at the door, Lu Xingzhi took Jiang Yao’s as he walked behind her. However, he was tall, and he leaned on Jiang Yao with a drunken look on his face. He called out to her as if he had something to say.
“Are you drunk? I’ll make you some tea to help with the alcohol,” Jiang Yao said.
“I told you not to drink so much. Too much red wine is not good for your body..”
