5 An Unforgettable Matchmaking Experience

Translator: Nyoi-Bo Studio Editor: Nyoi-Bo Studio

At 11:55 a.m., Ning Shi arrived at the matchmaking location five minutes earlier.

Yanyu Private Kitchen is a high-end restaurant. The per capita consumption was more than 300 yuan.

The dishes were arranged delicately, and the taste was not bad, but the portion was too small.

Ning Shi himself did not want to come to this kind of restaurant. Not only was it expensive, but he also did not have enough to eat.

The decoration style of the restaurant was mainly black and red. The lights were very dim, giving people a hazy atmosphere.

There were all kinds of nude art statues in the restaurant, as well as small details about making wet tissues into condoms, which showed the interest of little girls.

Early in the morning, his mother sent the contact number of the woman and the seat that she had reserved for the meal.

No. 18, "Almost Lover". 

Even Ning Shi was embarrassed to say the name of this booth.

"Table No. 18, we have a reservation."

"Okay, sir, please follow me!"

The waiter led the way in front. The restaurant occupied a large area, and after half a minute of meandering, they arrived at Table No. 18.

The woman had already arrived and was sitting in her seat, looking around.

She had a round face and big eyes. Under the dim light, her skin was still emitting a white jade-like luster. From the shape of her face, she looked like a princess doll from a fairy tale. She was very cute.

She was wearing a red low-cut dress and the cleavage on her chest was unfathomable. It could only be described with two words.

Big breasts.

Ning Shi was a little embarrassed. The woman was dressed very formally. It was obvious that she was very serious about this blind date. In contrast, he was resisting his mother's arrangement and was dressed a little too casually.

Walking to the table, Ning Shi generously stretched out his hand. "Hello, I'm Ning Shi. Nice to meet you!"

The girl blushed immediately. She shyly stretched out her small white hand and said in a low voice.

"Ning Shi, long... long time no see."

Ning Shi was stunned for a moment. He looked at the girl's face carefully and found that she indeed looked like his old classmate. He asked tentatively.

"You are... Hao Meng?"

The girl nodded and said, "Yes."

Her voice was very soft. If Ning Shi's physique hadn't greatly improved, he might not have been able to hear her clearly.

She was his junior high school classmate!

Hao Meng was his classmate in the third year of junior high school. She was a child prodigy. She had entered junior high school earlier at the age of 10 and had jumped to the third year at the age of 11.

Due to her young age, Hao Meng's personality was rather timid. Ning Shi had always admired such a genius, so the two of them could be considered good friends.

"Sit down. I heard from my classmate that you entered the youth class of Central University at the age of 13, and you went abroad to study for your Ph.D. at the age of 16. It's been more than ten years since we last met. How have you been recently?"

Hao Meng sat down obediently, took a sip of lemon juice and said, "I have just returned to China recently and am a teacher at Central University. I live in Central City."

Ning Shi was still very happy to see his old classmate.

"Impressive. A straight-A student is really something. Central University is the best university in Yunmeng Kingdom. In the future, when I have children, I can depend on you to educate them! By the way, you are only 24 this year, right? Why are you going on a blind date at such a young age?"

Hao Meng's face turned red again, and this time, it was so red that it reached her ears.

"After I returned to China, I wanted to contact you. I knew that your uncle was very close to my father, so I asked him about you. Who knew that they would misunderstand..."

"So they arranged for us to go on a blind date?"

Hao Meng nodded.

Ning Shi was a little speechless at the sensitivity of the elders, but he was still secretly happy in his heart.

Not only was the beauty sitting opposite him pleasing to the eye, but her personality was also good and they got along very well.

"Mengmeng, you've changed so much. You're so beautiful and dazzling."

Hearing Ning Shi's praise, Hao Meng's big eyes narrowed into a line and she smiled happily.

"It's good that you like it. It's my first time wearing this kind of dress and I was worried that it wouldn't look good."

"Haha, you don't know yourself very well. Add me on WeChat first."

After adding WeChat, Ning Shi picked up the tablet on the table and began to order dishes.

He ordered a plate of pan-fried cumin lamb chop with potato balls and a plate of black truffle crispy tofu, then handed the tablet to Hao Meng.

"I ordered two dishes. See what you want to eat. It's rare to meet an old classmate, so don't stand on ceremony. It's my treat today."

Hao Meng looked at Ning Shi in amusement and said, "This shop has a branch in Central City. I've eaten it before. The dishes are exquisite, but not enough. Let's just eat some."

After saying that, she added another dish and a serving of soup.

While the two were chatting, a loud noise suddenly came from the next table.


A man suddenly stood up and smashed the railing of the booth. Like an arrow released from a bow, he ran toward the window.

His speed was so fast that it was like an afterimage. The people and things that were in his way were all knocked down by him.

As he approached the window, the man's expression brightened. He leaped up and wanted to break out of the window.

However, it was as if there was a wall of qi in front of him. He rebounded out of thin air. 

Knowing that there was no hope of escaping, a ferocious look flashed across his face. He grabbed a woman that he had knocked down and shouted loudly.

"I have a hostage. Open the cage and let me out, or I will kill this woman!"

Ning Shi was stunned. How could this man have such speed that was not of an ordinary person?

And the wall of qi that was created out of thin air.

What the hell? Was he involved in a supernatural incident?

Hao Meng, who had been sitting opposite him, suddenly sat beside Ning Shi. Ning Shi thought that she was afraid, so he didn't mind it. 

The restaurant was in chaos and everyone ran to the door. The door was open, but there seemed to be an invisible wall in the air and no one could get out.

The man who had sneaked away didn't dare to move after taking the hostage.

He had a panicked look on his face and beads of sweat kept dripping down the sides, as if he was afraid of something.

"I'll count to three. If you don't open the cage, this woman's life will be in danger! You will be punished too!"




The man hardened his heart. Just as he was about to crush the hostage's throat, he suddenly felt that his arm was soft and he could not exert any strength.

He raised his hand with great effort and touched his forehead. A hole appeared between his eyebrows.

"The qi manipulator, it's true.. to its...name!"

After saying that, he fell to the ground. A pool of red blood flowed out from his forehead, scaring the hostage who screamed crazily.

After the man who tried to escape had died, a middle-aged man appeared out of thin air. There were five deep scars on his left cheek and coupled with his long and narrow eyes, he looked intimidating.

He stood in the air and said coldly, "Suspect No. C11 is dead. Clean up the scene."

As soon as he said that, a few people in black uniforms came in from the restaurant entrance.

One of them was holding a crystal-like ball. He raised the ball and muttered.

Immediately, the crystal ball emitted a purple light. Anyone who was illuminated by the light fainted.

Ning Shi was holding his phone. After being illuminated by the light, he didn't feel anything at all. When he saw the unconscious Hao Meng beside him, he immediately understood.

It was not a good thing to act alone at this time.

Therefore, he collapsed on the chair and fell into an artificial coma.

A faint sound came into his ears.

"Everyone's memories have been erased. The restaurant is slightly damaged, and it will take five hours to repair it."

"Forget it. Let the restaurant handle it on its own. Move the injured people to the hospital and leave the rest of the people on the spot. When they wake up, they will figure it out on their own."

"Got it!"

There was another rustling sound.

After about five minutes, the restaurant was completely quiet. All the uninvited guests left.

Ning Shi still didn't dare to move. It wasn't until a few customers woke up that Ning Shi opened his eyes and sat up.

One after another, everyone in the restaurant woke up.

Hao Meng also woke up. She sat across from him and didn't say a word.

"Mengmeng, are you okay?"

Ning Shi asked naturally. He suddenly remembered that according to what those people said, Hao Meng should have lost her memory during this period of time.

Would it be awkward and abrupt for him to ask her?

Hao Meng tidied up her dress and said naturally, "It's okay, Brother Shitou. Shall we continue eating here or go to another restaurant?"

Hearing Hao Meng's words, Ning Shi instantly understood that Hao Meng didn't lose her memory. He was about to ask again when Hao Meng blinked her big eyes.

Ning Shi understood and stopped asking.

The customers who woke up in the restaurant wouldn't let the matter off. 

"What's wrong with me? I can't remember anything. I was at home and was about to come to Yanyu Private Kitchen for dinner. How did I teleport into the restaurant?"

"My head feels dizzy. I seem to have forgotten something."

"You feel the same too? We didn't eat in the restaurant and suffer from collective food poisoning, did we?"

"What's going on in the restaurant? There are a few booths that are a mess. Was there a fight?"

Faced with the collective doubts of the customers, the restaurant owner had no choice but to think of something to appease the public's anger.

He immediately chose to call the police, then, he said, "I don't remember anything, just like everyone else. I can guarantee with my life that the ingredients in this restaurant are absolutely not poisonous. The police will be here later to verify it on the spot."

"To show my apology, the meal is on us for those who are willing to continue eating here!"

The restaurant owner had been through a lot. He knew that no matter what the truth was, he had to first remove the suspicion of food poisoning and then stabilize the feelings of the diners. These two things had a great impact on the reputation of the restaurant.

As expected, the customers stopped blaming the restaurant after he said that.

Everyone gathered in twos and threes to discuss what had happened today.

When he heard that the meal was free, Ning Shi didn't stand on ceremony and ordered 10 dishes in one go.

After experiencing the incident with his avatar in the game, Ning Shi had become quite open-minded. He didn't have much of a reaction when he encountered the supernatural incident just now. He should eat and drink as much as he can. 

Hao Meng was the same. She seemed very calm and steady. 

The two of them chatted as they ate. The atmosphere was extremely relaxed.

"This is the first time I've eaten my fill in this restaurant." Ning Shi touched his bulging belly. "Let's go and find a cafe to sit down?"

Ning Shi wanted to ask Hao Meng about the situation. Hao Meng was aware of his intentions. She smiled and said, "I still have something to do in the afternoon. Let's eat together another day and keep in touch."

After saying that, she took out her phone and opened WeChat. There was an unsent message.

"Just now, the Investigation Department arrested the awakened criminals. We are still under surveillance, so we have to be careful with our words and actions. I have an urgent matter in Central City. I have to take a plane back in the afternoon. Recently, Donglin City is not peaceful. Be careful. If there is anything, contact me directly. I will protect you."

After Ning Shi finished reading, Hao Meng put away her phone and deleted the unsent message.

"Brother Shitou, I'm glad to see you again!"

Hao Meng reached out her white and tender hand. Ning Shi understood and shook her hand.

Her hand was soft and soft, and it felt great. Ning Shi felt it for a while.

Hao Meng blushed again. She shyly looked at Ning Shi and said in a low voice.

"The driver is here to pick me up. I'll come back to Donglin City to look for you after I'm done with work."

With that, she wrapped herself in a coat, covered her chest and back, and walked out of the restaurant.

Ning Shi followed her and watched Hao Meng get into a Mercedes Benz.

It was really an unforgettable matchmaking experience.
