After he said that, he did not let Yisheng have a chance to reject his offer before he went off. When he came back, he was carrying several bottles of different kinds of foreign alcohol, as well as drink mixing tools. He sat next to Yisheng again and placed down the several large bottles in his hands. He had a teasing look in his eyes as he looked at Yisheng, “I’m the bartender of this Sentimental Bar. Why do you look like you’re full of disdain for me? Today, this big brother is in a good mood. I’ll make you a drink called ‘Home Run’.
“Woah, Ah Yu, do you want to hit a home run?” His close friends suddenly made a ruckus, there was an endless amount of ambiguity in their eyes. Yisheng frowned, vaguely remembering that ‘Home Run’ has another meaning.
First base was holding hands, second base was kissing, third base was hugging, and home run was the last step.
Yisheng looked at him, unsure of what he was doing.
She saw this handsome and trendy man pour in Bourbon whisky, white rum, and brandy, and a series of strong spirits. Then, he added two spoonfuls of lemon juice and played with the cocktail shaker in his hands, throwing, spinning, and doing all kinds of difficult movements. Yisheng and Lin Ruohan were stunned as they watched. His other friends also cheered him on, and when he poured the alcohol out, the double-tone alcohol was even more amazing.
Yisheng had never seen such flashy moves or such a beautiful cocktail and she could not help but say, “Amazing.”
The bartender, Ah Yu smiled confidently, as if he had expected that no woman would be able to resist his charm. That yellow-haired boy winked at him, and when he picked up the two glasses of alcohol, he slipped two tiny pills in and passed the drinks to Yisheng and Lin Ruohan, “Here, take a sip, it’s very delicious.”
At that moment, they were very curious about this cocktail. Lin Ruohan did not hesitate and gulped down the drink, finishing it. It burnt so much that she kept tearing up. This was the strongest alcohol that she had ever drunk. Yisheng first drank a large mouthful of the alcohol. When that burning sensation entered her throat, she almost spits it out. She would only drink during festivities, and what she drank was normally just wine. Before this, she had once drunk a bit of white wine, but even that did not burn as much as this alcohol, the alcohol percentage is too high. She did not want to drink anymore, but she saw that the few men were all looking at her. She was a little embarrassed and she picked up the cup to drink a few more sips. She was almost done drinking it when Song Anchen walked over with a cake in his hands. When he saw several ruffian-like men on the seat, and his face turned cold.
He Jin followed over, and when he saw the men that he did not know, he could not help asking, “Who are you?”
“Brother, he’s the bartender of this shop. He’s excellent,” Lin Ruohan had just finished drinking strong alcohol, and her face was already burning red. However, the admiration in her eyes truly made Song Anchen feel a little uneasy. He did not know why this bartender was here, but he simply had a strong sense of self-preservation. He instantly asked them to leave, “I’m sorry, we’re celebrating my younger sister’s birthday, and outsiders aren’t welcome.”
The yellow-haired boy was a little unhappy, “Aiya, I thought that these two younger sisters came here alone.”
The bartender, Ah Yu stood up and told the yellow-haired boy, “Pack up your things and let’s go.” After that, he winked at Yisheng, “You’re going to finish the cocktail I gave you, right?”
Song Anchen looked at the yellow-haired boy cleaning up the cocktail-making tools. These were all very strong foreign alcohol, what would happen if they drank it? Song Anchen told Yisheng gently, “It looks like it tastes very good, I want to try the cocktail too.”
“You can drink it,” Yisheng really did not want to drink it and instantly handed it to him. Song Anchen drank it in a few mouthfuls, leaving behind a burning sensation in his throat. There was a strong alcohol taste left behind. A cocktail normally had a very low alcohol percentage, because the bartender would add in fruit juice to dilute it. However, this cocktail was so strong that Song Anchen, who had always felt that his alcohol tolerance was alright felt himself get a headache immediately.
The bartender Ah Yu shrugged and told Yisheng, “With a boyfriend like this, he’s suitable for getting a home run with.” His words obviously had a double meaning.
Yisheng paused and did not speak.
When the crowd left, there were only four people left sitting, and it was obviously much quieter. Song Anchen lighted the candles, and the three of them sang a birthday song for Lin Ruohan before they started to eat cake. He Jin was in a good mood and ordered nearly a box of beers, wanting to drink alcohol with Song Anchen. Lin Ruohan was interested again and she said that she wanted to drink as well. At that moment, Yisheng’s chest was very stuffy and her face was red, her head felt very swollen. It was obvious that the alcohol was getting to her head and she was drunk. She could only sit out of their drinking competition.
Yisheng sat at the side and closed her eyes for a moment, feeling that her whole body was getting warmer and warmer. It felt like she needed to go to the toilet but she had no desire to. She squinted her eyes slightly and saw that the box of beer on the table was empty. Lin Ruohan and He Jin were dancing happily on the dance floor excitedly.
Song Anchen was slightly turned to the side, his white skin already dyed light pink, causing him to look more vivid and beautiful. He had a hand on his stomach, and he was breathing was a little fast. For some reason, Yisheng suddenly had the urge to get close to him. She wanted to tightly hug him and stick to him. The more she thought that way, the faster her breathing. Her whole head was full of impure things.
She stood up suddenly, and her head hurt like crazy so she fell back on the sofa. The noise awakened Song Anchen and he opened his eyes slightly to look at Yisheng, pinching his forehead, “Are you alright?”
“I feel horrible,” She did not know how to describe how she felt, she could only say that she was feeling horrible.
Song Anchen slightly narrowed his sleepy eyes and looked at his watch. It was almost nine. He stood up and walked towards the dance floor. He said something to He Jin, then he came back and helped up Yisheng, who was very weak, “Let’s go back first.”
“What about them?”
“I asked He Jin to send my sister home.”
“Oh,” Yisheng obediently leaned on his shoulder, sniffing the light shower gel fragrance from his body. She had the impulse to hit the home run with him. She was started by her sudden dirty thoughts and was woken up slightly. At that time, she happened to walk past the bar counter and saw the ruffian-like Ah Yu, she could not help putting her hand at Song Anchen’s waist.
She had seen so many men, but none of them had been better than Song Anchen. Song Anchen had a clean and refreshing look, he had white skin, delicate features. He had an otherworldly feel, she liked this kind of boy, she really, really liked him.
She fell on him.
Song Anchen was also drunk, he leaned forward and staggered a few times. He lowered his head and looked at Yisheng, who was a little out of it, and smiled bitterly. She even dared to drink such strong alcohol. On the way back, they took a cab and Yisheng felt hotter and hotter. She felt so hot that she could not stand it. She even had a feeling in her abdomen that she could not describe. She leaned on Song Anchen, she could not help but stretch her hand to touch his cool neck, trying to cool down a bit by touching him.
Song Anchen trembled lightly and adjusted Yisheng, “Don’t touch random places,” But he was not calm at all.
They had reached their estate with much difficulty and Song Anchen held onto her as he struggled to climb up the stairs. His originally confused mind was woken up instantly. When they finally reached Yisheng’s house, he asked, “Where’s the key?”
“In my pocket,” she continued to lean on his shoulder and pointed at her trouser pocket.
Song Anchen went to take out the key, which made Yisheng’s whole body tremble. This sort of inadvertent touch seemed to make her want to erupt. Song Anchen did not notice Yisheng’s changes and brought her into the house. Because she was practically unconscious, Song Anchen was unable to switch on the light. Thankfully, he was familiar with her house and he sent her directly to her room and threw her on the bed.
He was a little tired and so he fell on her bed and rested as well. As soon as he closed his eyes, his drunkenness seemed to come back, and his head seemed to feel heavy again. In the dark, a pair of small hands touched his hands, they were not very dexterous but caused him to feel on fire.
What followed it was his subtle change.
The results were of course a home run.
