When they met again this time, she found it hard to take her eyes off of him. She even threw her restraint as a girl to the wind and invited him to dance.
When Tang Wulin had appeared at the entrance with Gu Yue, she spotted him immediately. He looked so handsome today! He seemed to fulfill all her heart’s desires.
Nothing could be more natural than liking a person of the opposite gender. Actually, Lin Yuhan herself did not understand much about those sort of things. She just enjoyed being close to Tang Wulin.
She was confident enough in her own looks, and she did not think that she was any less pretty than Gu Yue. Furthermore, she shared the same profession with Tang Wulin. She still had a chance.
The next song was noticeably more energetic than the one before, as arranged by Sima Lanxiao. He needed to enliven the mood of the banquet. A vibrant atmosphere was helpful for the exchange program.
Gu Yue pulled Tang Wulin onto the dance floor. Tang Wulin barely had time to react when Gu Yue stopped in her tracks.
She turned around suddenly and glared angrily at Tang Wulin.
“Gu Yue, I…”
The electrifying music started to play right at that moment. Gu Yue pulled on Tang Wulin’s arm and placed his right hand on her waist. At the same time, she raised her left hand. She held Tang Wulin’s left hand and raised it high above her head.
Shortly after, Gu Yue’s entire body, under the guidance of her raised left hand, started to swivel quickly.
As she swayed, her one-piece dress seemed to glitter with a silver glow like a gemstone.
Her hemline started to rise. Tang Wulin had wanted to warn her, but he noticed that Gu Yue had worn shorts underneath her dress. Nobody knew when she had put them on.
The Gu Yue in this moment was no longer calm nor cold. Instead, she was filled with a wildness that was hard to pin down.
Tang Wulin felt like something inside him was being prodded. His heart fluttered slightly, and his blood ran hot.
Gu Yue also attracted the attention of everyone around them. Soon after, she unexpectedly stepped on Tang Wulin’s thigh with her left foot. She took advantage of the situation by using the momentum to leap up and landed on Tang Wulin’s shoulders. Her movements were gracefully extended. It was a beautiful scene. She tiptoed on Tang Wulin’s shoulder and started swaying again.
With this, everyone’s eyes were centered on her.
Holding firmly onto Tang Wulin’s shoulders, she stood on her hands. Gu Yue now seemed to have transformed into a serpentine beauty. She slid down in a spiral around Tang Wulin’s body, and her waist fell into his grasp once again. She pulled backward and Tang Wulin was naturally leaned forward. Gu Yue bent backward as far as she could. She supported herself against the floor with her hands and threw her long legs upward around Tang Wulin’s neck.
Tang Wulin’s arms were still on her waist. Gu Yue’s every movement was impeccably synchronized with the music.
“Throw me.” Gu Yue’s voice sounded in Tang Wulin’s ear.
Using his upper body strength, Tang Wulin pushed back and supported her slender body. He was immensely powerful. As he swung upward, Gu Yue’s figure swiveled and shot into the air.
The banquet hall was at least thirty meters high, but when Gu Yue was thrown upward by Tang Wulin, she almost touched the ceiling. She continued gyrating in midair as her upper body stretched out in various movements. She dropped downward slightly while swaying, appearing like a silver lotus in full bloom.
On the floor, everyone else had stopped dancing for quite some time. Their gaze was fixated on Gu Yue and Tang Wulin.
As she dropped down from above, Tang Wulin raised his right hand and caught her gently by the waist before placing her back on the ground.
Gu Yue pulled on his hand and broke into a waltz around him. Tang Wulin did not move much, his every move was made under Gu Yue’s guidance, but they seemed to be in sync.
Tang Wulin’s gaze never left Gu Yue’s eyes, but the expression in his own eyes changed shifted continuously. From the initial shock, it turned to surprise, then to enthusiasm, and finally to ecstasy.
Her poise was truly a sight to behold.
Gu Yue had an amazing body. Her legs were especially slender, and her waist was slim. Although she did not possess the bosomy beauty of a mature woman, she was filled with the vigor of youth.
Even while doing such a quick paced dance she still displayed grace and nobility. She was like a fairy beside him, always at his side and dancing enthusiastically for no one else.
When the final note of the music sounded, Gu Yue swiveled and leaned on Tang Wulin’s chest. She raised her head slowly. The hatred and hidden bitterness in her eyes had disappeared. There was only a faint smile on her beautiful face. As she leaned on his chest, she stretched out her hands and placed them lightly on his cheeks.
Their eyes locked. Tang Wulin’s gaze was scorching hot, but there was only warmth left in hers.
Tang Wulin pulled on her lightly. Gu Yue turned in a circle and stood up straight. She extended her arms and led Tang Wulin as they bowed to the audience.
The crowd in the banquet hall burst into applause immediately. In an instant, whistles and claps had brought the atmosphere in the banquet hall to a climax for a moment.
With everyone cheering for them, Gu Yue faced Tang Wulin and adjusted his bowtie and shirt for him. She spoke to him in a volume which only the two of them could hear, “Even if you want to learn how to dance, it’s enough for me to teach you. If you ever dance with another girl again, I’ll…”
“What’ll you do?” Tang Wulin hugged her waist.
Gu Yue raised her head. She did not evade his gaze in the slightest as she said with a smile, “I’ll break her legs.”
Gu Yue pulled on Tang Wulin as they parted the crowd to exit the dance floor. Like a proud peahen, she had pulled him back to where he once was.
“Wow. Sister Yue, you’re so amazing.” Xu Xiaoyan’s pretty face had flushed red out of excitement. She hugged Gu Yue forcefully. “Teach me how to dance! Can you teach me how to dance after this as well?”
Gu Yue nodded with a smile.
Yuanen Yehui’s expression was a little peculiar as she looked at Tang Wulin. “Gu Yue did the right thing. Some people just can’t be indulged.”
“That’s right. Whatever bad habit you let them indulge in, they’ll certainly pick it up,” Xie Xie chimed in from the side immediately.
Tang Wulin raised his eyebrows. “Xie Xie, don’t you think that dancing is a beautiful thing? If a man has graceful dance moves, he’ll attract the attention of the ladies more easily.”
Xie Xie was stunned. He looked at Yuanen Yehui beside him. He remembered clearly that when they were watching Tang Wulin and Gu Yue dance so nimbly, Yuanen Yehui had never taken her eyes off them even for a second. There was even a hint of envy in her eyes.
“What do you mean? Did you want to teach me? You don’t seem so well-versed yourself.”
Tang Wulin said, “For something like this, practice makes perfect. How can you know the result if you haven’t even given it a try? Besides, you’re an Agility System Battle Soul Master! I’m sure you’ll master it in no time. Come, I’ll teach you.”
“Don’t you find it weird that two guys are dancing together?” Xie Xie was slightly hesitant, but he still came to Tang Wulin’s side. If he learned how to dance, would that add points to Yuanen Yehui’s impression of him?
Tang Wulin hugged his shoulder and pulled Xie Xie toward the dance floor.
Xu Xiaoyan looked at Gu Yue with puzzlement and said, “What’s the captain up to? Don’t tell me that he’s really hooked on dancing?”
Gu Yue said drily, “No, I think it’s because of what I said to him just now. I’ll break the legs of anyone he dances with.”
“Uhh…” Xu Xiaoyan was initially stunned, then, she broke into laughter, “The captain is pure evil. He’s too sly. Poor Xie Xie.”
Yuanen Yehui also laughed hysterically. Somewhat helplessly, she shook her head.
In the end, Tang Wulin did not successfully dance with Xie Xie, the reason being that the primary selections of the day were just about to start.
On the Douluo Continent’s side, Elder Cai was among the five persons of noble character and high prestige.
Impressively, Tang Wulin was chosen as a candidate for the best-dressed gentleman, the most handsome gentleman, and the best dancing couple categories in the next selection. He was nominated for three categories in one go.
Of course, his dance moves were not worth mentioning, but he was Gu Yue’s dance partner!
What surprised Tang Wulin a little was that Wu Zhangkong, who had been standing in a corner and had never stepped onto the dance floor, was also nominated for the best-dressed gentleman and most handsome gentleman categories.
He had never thought that he would have the chance to compete against Teacher Wu.
