As soon as the door opened, Han Qianqian, who was still a bit wary, was instantly a bit dumbfounded.
There was no darkness, no instruments of torture, not even soldiers on guard, just a huge round table filled with a wide variety of delicious food.
After Han Qianqian froze, he couldn’t help but let out a bitter laugh: “What? Coming for a punishment and then coming for a toast?”
“Oh, you’re here.” When he heard Han Qianqian’s voice, a figure was at the moment with his back to the doorway seemingly fiddling with something at the table, and as he turned around, underneath his gentle, jade-like appearance was a humble and polite man, holding a transparent container in his hand, with half a bottle of red and orange liquid in it, which was crystal clear and quite beautiful at a glance.
“Knowing that you are coming over, I have specially prepared some for you for quite some time, it is called Piao Xiang Hong, I have treasured it for decades.” The City Master smiled slightly, then, picking up the transparent container, he slowly walked over.
“Don’t worry, this wine is extremely warm and shallow in nature, it’s by no means the kind of strong wine you get at midday.” Having said that, he gently sat down, took two gla*ses and slowly filled them.
“Sit.” He remembered something and stretched out his hand to invite.
Han Qianqian smiled, and looking back around, he was basically certain that this City Lord was indeed the only one in this large room before him, and absolutely no one else.
If he dared to go alone, why wouldn’t he dare?
Sitting slightly, Han Qianqian looked at him gently, wondering what tricks he was trying to pull.
“Taste it.” Handing the poured gla*s of wine to Han Qianqian, the city lord then smiled and drank first.
Han Qianqian didn’t say much, so he picked up the gla*s and drank it all, then, with a faint smile, “As the saying goes, courtesy comes first, so the city lord’s courtesy has come first, so it’s time to come.”
“Does your Excellency think that Zhu will harm you?” The City Lord smiled faintly, and then, refilled Han Qianqian’s wine: “By the way, my name is Zhu Yanshuo.”
“Would that still be good for me?” Han Qianqian also smiled faintly.
Zhu Yanshuo shook his head in a somewhat remorseful manner, “It’s normal for you to think this way, but I know that you are to blame for what happened today.
“The fall of the Demon Cloud Ghost City is a good thing for the people, but for those who have followed me in the fight for the world, there is less place for them to make their mark. Therefore, today I have set up a thin game as a token of my gratitude.” As he said this, Zhu Yanshuo raised his wine cup and made amends.
Han Qianqian let out a cold laugh, “Did I hear you correctly? Does City Master Zhu mean to make amends to me?”
“Naturally, it’s not bad, so I will drink first.” Zhu Yanshuo finished, tilting his head and drinking the wine in his cup.
After he put down the cup, he sighed and then, after clapping his hands, a servant girl slowly walked in with a wooden box.
Han Qianqian reached out to block the door of the wooden box and shook his head: “It is enough for the city lord to apologise to me personally, so please take the things back.” With these words, Han Qianqian picked up the wine cup and drank it down in one go.
“Good, since your Excellency is gracious, then I don’t need to say more, I am toasting you.” With those words, Zhu Yanshuo served another gla*s of wine, looking quite happy because of Han Qianqian’s forgiveness.
“Right, eat the dishes, eat the dishes, these dishes are all made by me personally to show my apology.” Zhu Yanshuo enthusiastically gave Han Qianqian a few chopsticks of food, and then refilled it for him.
“The City Master still has this kind of effort?” Han Qianqian was a little surprised.
“I still love to toss and turn,” Zhu Yanshuo said with a soft smile.
Han Qianqian nodded and ate the chopsticks, but at that moment, there was a knock on the door of the room. With a soft answer from Zhu Yanshuo, the door was pushed open and a beautiful figure in light green gauze appeared at the door.
However, what surprised Han Qianqian more than this stunning figure and appearance was another dimension, and he shouted out sharply, “Xia Wei?”
