'You we***! Just wait and see!' Louise thought.
Soon, the main course and desserts came, and Xue Lin and Yan Su did not look anywhere before they dug in the food. Qi Ying looked graceful like a princess when she was eating. She didn't eat much. She was very picky about food.
And Mu Lan, on the other hand, was puzzled. No matter whichever food item she tasted, she felt like she was in heaven.
For appetizers, they had Sweet and Mild Meatballs, Savory French Toast, Prawn Satay, Onion Soup with Wonton and French 75 Jello Shots. As for the main course dishes, they had Beef and Vegetable Ragout, Poulet de Provencal, Patti's Mussels a la Mariniere, Beef Bourguignon and Chicken Cordon Bleu II. And finally, for desserts, they had Soufflé au Chocolat Valrhona, La Crème Brûlée, Soufflé a la Pistache and finally the most expensive Red Wine, Screaming Eagle Cabernet 1992.
Only the Red Wine would cost five hundred thousand dollars. Regarding other dishes, which were prepared by the top chef of France, the cost couldn't be counted on fingers. She definitely needed a calculator. On top of that, she had spent lots of money to hire the top-notch chef.
A simple friendly lunch invitation had turned out to be a royal festival.
When the Red Wine Screaming Eagle Cabernet 1992 was served on the table, Louise's thirst for water completely drained off. She suddenly felt that her soul had left her body.
If it was Louise Fontaine and Mu Feng's romantic dinner, or their engagement party or wedding or honeymoon, Louise had no problems spending her lifetime money. However, she was spending money on her love rival and her friends.
It was so painful! So painful!
After dinner, no one had the strength to enjoy the view, neither Mu Lan nor her friends. They laid down on the sofa. Mu Lan stroked her belly. Yan Su felt sleepy so she took a nap. Xue Lin burped a few times. Only Qi Ying elegantly sat on the sofa and looked outside.
Mu Lan and Xue Lin went to the second floor and sat on the chairs.
Xue Lin glanced at her cunning friend and asked, "Since when did you start deceiving her?"
Mu Lan laughed and replied, "It isn't like that. Louise called brother Feng and asked him to meet her with me. Remember Anne's birthday party?"
Xue Lin nodded. Mu Lan continued, "That time Louise was also present. Brother Feng wanted to clear the misunderstanding but Xiao Ying was with you to visit Yan Su in the hospital. Brother Feng didn't want to disturb his girlfriend's friendly time, so I came to his rescue."
Xue Lin said, "So you are the culprit from the beginning. I should have guessed earlier."
Mu Lan giggled and said, "It was fun though."
Xue Lin also smiled as she recalled Louise's pale face. She rose her wine glass and said, "Yes, it was fun."
They clinked their wine glasses and sipped the wine.
Xue Lin sighed and said, "It's delicious."
Mu Lan nodded and replied, "It is. We should thank Yan Su for that." She thought for a while and then said, "I was thinking of something important."
Xue Lin was gazing at the beautiful city of Paris. In the cool breeze, the sunlight was giving her comfort. She turned her eyes to Mu Lan and asked, "What is it?"
Mu Lan replied, "Today, when Xiao Ying came to cook for me, she said that four years ago when she was with brother Feng, someone tried to break them apart."
Xue Lin's eyes narrowed. She asked, "Really?"
Mu Lan nodded and continued, "Not only that, the person tried to harm her many times and the shocking part is brother Feng had no clue about it."
