Though exhausted, Lily agreed to go out with Li Shanshan to celebrate the last day of her singlehood. Her friend had a point. Marriage is quite a big deal. Li Shanshan then happily called a few people to meet at Highlights - one of Hong Kong's most upscale club.
Lily made a quick call to inform Zhuo Jingren about their night out. She also made sure to send him the address of the club that they were at.
"Asking for permission already? Hmmm… You aren't even officially married to him yet and you are already so submissive?" Lily looked up and Fernando's beautiful face came into view. The latter was leaning over and peeking at her screen.
"Please respect my privacy, thank you," she said, rolling her eyes at Fernando. Then, she spotted a tall girl beside her friend. "And she is?"
"My date for tonight," Fernando answered nonchalantly before making himself comfortable on the couch in their VIP booth. "Lily… this is Lily," he introduced his date before bursting into laughter. His antics only earned a raised eyebrow from Lily.
"Hi, I am Lila, pleased to meet you," the girl decided to introduce herself, holding out her hand.
"Pleased to meet you. Call me Lily." Lily shook Lila's hand.
Fernando had always fancied beautiful black women and Lila was no exception. She was tall and slim, and she had piercing almond eyes. Lily guessed that this girl might be a model.
"Now that everyone is here… I would like to announce a very big news!" Li Shanshan exclaimed. In addition to Fernando and Lila, Yang Mi and the two directors that Lily had brought from London, Mr. Beau and Miss O'Kelly were also invited.
"Our Lily… is getting married!" Li Shanshan squealed before she raised her glass of champagne to initiate a toast. Loud gasps could be heard before everyone followed Li Shanshan's lead and raised their glass of champagne. "To a happy marriage!"
Everyone immediately gave their congratulations to Lily. "So who is the lucky guy?" Fernando asked with a smile but the glint in his eyes revealed that he was far from being happy.
"Let's just call him Escort Zhuo," Li Shanshan butted in before downing another glass of champagne.
"Zhuo?" Fernando raised an eyebrow as he watched the glistening champagne in his hand. "As in Zhuo Capital?"
"Yes," Lily answered nonchalantly, making a nod at Yang Mi and her directors who were gesturing to her that they would be going to the dance floor. "Long story."
"Does he treat you well?" Fernando asked.
"So far...yes," she answered truthfully before sipping her own champagne. "He actually went looking for me after I disappeared seven years ago and he never gave up searching for me until he found me."
Fernando experienced complicated emotions after hearing what Lily said. "Do you want to dance?" Lily nodded and took his hand before walking out of their booth.
As they were making their way to the dance floor, Lily let her eyes roam around, appreciating the beauty of the club's interiors. Highlights was known for its sophistication. It was the people's choice for clubbing and holding celebrations. As they walked past a hall of mirrors, Lily turned to look at her reflection briefly and nodded in satisfaction.
Lily was currently wearing a short, fitted Louis Vuitton crepe dress in cream. It was V neck with a low-cut back. She paired it with a beige Christian Louboutin's strass platform shoes which made her feet look as if they were wrapped in diamonds. Her hair was in a French twist, with a few loose strands of hair fell that along the sides of her face, framing her face. Lily also opted for a dramatic eye shadow, intensifying her already beautiful golden eyes and a nude lipstick. The alcohol that Lily drunk also caused her cheeks to turned a little scarlet, making her even more attractive.
While Lily was looking classy and sexy, Fernando was also looking hot with his pink oxford and white chinos. He paired his outfit with white sneakers. While Fernando does not give off a strong aura that would stop you in your tracks, people still couldn't help but to eye the beautiful man who was leading a beautiful woman towards the dance floor.
When they arrived at the dance floor, Lily was immediately captivated by seductive lantern lighting that reminded her of the northern lights. There was an array of blues, gold, pinks and green, making the smoky dance floor more vibrant.
The walls of the club were made of inverted bottles filled with neon colored liquid. The light on the walls illuminated these bottles adding to the sophistication of the club.
"Ready?" Fernando asked, as a new tune played. The people on the dance floor were now changing their pace to match the current sexy tune that was playing in the background. This was not the first time that Fernando and Lily had danced together and so the two were already familiar with each other's moves.
Lily gave Fernando a smirk before kicking her right leg forward and landing on pointed toes. Lily then pivoted towards Fernando with grace and accuracy.
Fernando skillfully caught her in his arms before he asked, "Are you really sure about this marriage?" Then he used one hand to spin her around before reeling her back into his arms.
