Chapter 162: Wasabi
Xu Jia wasfortunate to have won the right to ask the first question. She looked around,and eventually settled her eyes on Gu Yu: “I have a question to ask the Director.”
Gu Yu tooka napkin and wiped his mouth. He calmly replied: “Ask away.”
Hesitatingslightly, Xu Jia felt a little embarrassed, but she went ahead and asked anyway:"Boss, who do you think is the best employee of the group?"
Everyonesnorted — what kind of question is that? He can\'t answer it!
Gu Yu:“You are all very good because each of you have your own strength.”
Since hisanswer was too impartial, everyone felt extremely dissatisfied. They wanted himto name someone. Feeling helpless under the pressure of the group Gu Yu finallyoffered up a name: “It would be Yuan Zhicheng.”
YuanZhicheng had his face buried in his food. He was eating a salmon sushi when he suddenlyheard his name and looked up.
Everyonethought Gu Yu would name Zhang Siyi, but unexpectedly the Boss said Yuan Zhicheng.
Gu Yu explained:“Even though Yuan Zhicheng is a low-key person, he is very serious andworks extremely diligently. His drawings are excellent."
Even thoughYuan Zhicheng was the best illustrator in the company, his presence was low. Listening,people were moved by Gu Yu\'s explanation because it proved to everyone, whetherthey were loud or quiet, that their work and effort was acknowledged by theBoss.
Everyone raiseda glass and coaxed: “Here, here. A toast! The Director likes you the most!"
YuanZhicheng raised his glass and said: “Boss, Thank you.”
Aftereveryone finished the toast, Gu Yu casually picked someone and asked aquestion, keeping the game going. Not long afterwards, Gu Yu was questionedagain!
Even thougheveryone knew the origin of Ji Feiyu proposition, the group continued to directtheir questions at Gu Yu. Who cares which person likes whom! They want to heargossip!
This timeBi Lele asked the question. She smiled and asked: “Boss, why did youchoose Zhang Siyi for your partner in the company\'s couple matching game?"
Zhang Siyi:“…” He suspected this! Knowing about her \'rotten\' nature, this typeof question would definitely be asked!" (=_=)
However,since Gu Yu wanted to ignore the rules, the truth-telling aspect of the game issimply a game of \'willing to take the bait\'. Since statements are consideredtruth, liars don\'t need to accept a punishment even when they lie.
Gu Yuglanced at Zhang Siyi and smiled a little: "Because I like him a lot."
Zhang Siyi: “!!!" – What about "lie"? Why the fuck aren’t you playing by your rules! (╯#°Д°)╯
After abrief silence, the crowd burst into laughter. Picking up their chopsticks, theytapped on their bowls noisily. It was probably the first time the Director madea joke with them! This game was interesting!
Afteranswering, Gu Yu chose Tao Fei as a target for his next question: "Brother, youhave been working with Zhang Siyi for two months on a project. What do youthink of Zhang Siyi?"
This is thefirst time in public that Gu Yu has called Tao Fei brother. Tao Fei grinned andlooked straight at Zhang Siyi: “I also like him a lot.”
Zhang Siyi:“!!!” Fuck! You are ganging up on me!
Thecooperation between Gu Yu and Tao Fei was too clever. Gu Yu first gave anambiguous answer causing people to wonder if he had special feelings for Zhang Siyi,but then he asked Tao Fei a question and characterized they\'re \'like\' as infriends and comrades. His answer made it clear to everyone that they were just joking.
Anyway, aslong as everyone is having a good time, no one cares whether there is any truthto the statement or not.
"It\'s myturn to ask a question, yes?" Tao Fei directed his site to Zhang Siyi and grinned:"Zhang Siyi, who do you like more, me or my brother?"
Zhang Siyi:"……" What the fuck are you doing!
Everyoneburst into laughter. Some people were laughing so hard that they fell to thetatami mats and rolled on the ground.
As the questionscontinued to revolve around him in some fashion, Zhang Siyi felt indignant. SinceGu Yu told him to lie, he will: "I don\'t like either of you!"
Tao Fei wassurprised: “Hey, you’ve fouled!”
Zhang Siyi stubbornlyquestioned: “How did I foul?”
Tao Fei:“I gave you a multiple-choice question so your answer has to be eithermyself or Gu Yu, but what answer did you just give? Replying without using thecorrect format is punishable!"
Since partof the game revolved around actions when someone didn\'t want to admit a fact, inthe excitement, everyone was swayed by Tao Fei\'s logic and started to chant: "Puh-nish!Puh-nish!"
Framed bythe crowd, Zhang Siyi couldn’t get away from the spotlight. Throwing everythingto the wind he exclaimed: "Fine!"
He raisedhis glass to drink but was held back by Tao Fei: "Wait, who said the punishmentwas drinking?”
Zhang Siyi:“Doesn\'t the person who chose Dare drink directly?"
Looking athim, Tao Fei raised his eyebrows. He took his chopsticks from his small dish andpicked up a huge piece of wasabi then placed it on top of a piece of sushi: "Ihave heard of that lazy way of playing, but I play it differently."
Zhang Siyiwas shocked at what was placed before him. Does Tao Fei want him to eat it? He doesn\'ttolerant spicy foods well. Normally, he can\'t even stand the tiniest piece ofwasabi, let alone a huge chunk like what was placed before him. If he ate it,he would definitely die!
Tao Feismiled at his \'masterpiece\' and offered an alternative: “I\'ll give you twochoices. Either eat this piece of sushi or," he glanced at Gu Yu, "you give brother a kiss."
Everyoneexcitedly banged the table and chanted in unison: “Kiss him! Kiss him!Kiss him!"
Tao Fei narrowedhis eyes at Gu Yu, as if to say, brother, I can only help you here.
Comparingthe two choices, the difficulty of eating such a large piece of wasabi wasobvious, However, kissing Gu Yu in front of everyone…… Zhang Siyi was beyondshy. He quietly looked a Gu Yu. To his surprised, Gu Yu was watching him withanticipation.
Given thisrare opportunity to show affection in front of everyone in the guise of thegame, Zhang Siyi had to admit he was a little excited…… Maybe, Gu Yu wants ittoo?
Temporarilyforgetting the shackles that society has placed on him, Zhang Siyi unconsciouslyalready had turned his head and leaned over…. He placed a kiss on Gu Yu\'s face.
All thefemale colleagues held their face and screamed. Even the male colleagues hootedand whooped. While everyone was being boisterous and loud, the atmospherereached a high tide!
Bright red,Zhang Siyi retracted his head. He wiped his mouth in a hurry and drank a glassof wine to hide.
Contrary toZhang Siyi actions, Gu Yu sat still with a calm face. Having been kissed byanother man, he didn\'t appear embarrassed at all and in fact, he looked atZhang Siyi in the eye and smiled slightly at him.
This littleexpression once again sparked the screams of a couple of rottencoworkers……. God, what to do! They want to see the Director and Zhang Siyi together!
Among them,there is one person who can\'t find any reason to feel happy: Lu Qiao.
Even thoughit is supposed to be a game, his views were collapsing. Is it true that he isthe only one who thinks that the relationship between Zhang Siyi and Gu Yu isnot normal? And Tao Fei, why did he suggest such a proposition? How can he makethat type of joke? What are they all excited about?
Lu Qiaofelt as if he was slowly being separated from the group. He was unable toconnect with his colleagues and integrate with them and as a result, he wasn\'table to find his place.
He was likea spectator only able to watch people revel in happiness, but not participatein it.
“Now it\'s my turn, right?” Zhang Siyi looked to Ji Feiyu and said: “Chicken brother, I want to ask you a question.” Since Ji Feiyu was the main character of the game, this brother looked forward to \'The-Question\' for so long. Wanting to divert people attention away from Gu Yu and himself, Zhang Siyi decided it would be a good time to address Ji Feiyu and lend him a helping hand
