Xiulan estimated him to be 180 centimeters tall and he wore a liberation suit, which made him even more tall and upright. The outline of his face was clear, especially his eyebrows and eyes, which looked more heroic than the other man with a square face. His main facial features were very good-looking. It was very manly, which was different from the celebrity stars that some young girls fantasized in the 21st century.
She still preferred this kind of mature and manly man, so she couldn’t help but gaze at him for a while.
But it seemed that the handsome man felt her gaze, so he also looked in her direction.
She was a little embarrassed and turned her head away.
She stared at some other man so eagerly that she could have probably frightened him. After all, this era was still very conservative, where the relationship between men and women was relatively pure.
The handsome man also retracted his gaze, found an empty table, and sat down with the man that had a square face.
The name of the man with a square face was Lu Qingguo, and the man that Xiulan thought was handsome was Jiang Cheng.
After sitting down, Qingguo said, “Cheng, I’ll treat you today, you should eat more, so don’t be polite to me!”
Cheng hurriedly waved his hand as his refusal. “No! Qingguo, I should treat you today instead!”
Qingguo had a stern face and was a little unhappy. “How can this work? You came all the way to Anxian County, so I am the host and I invite you to this meal! How can there be any reason for you to be the host here?”
Cheng also said solemnly, “Qingguo, don’t be polite to me. I ran all the way here to bother you with something. If you don’t let me buy you this first meal, I will be embarrassed to ask you for help in the future!
“So, I’ll treat you this time! You can invite me for a meal next time, what do you think?
“If you don’t agree, then I won’t ask you for help anymore!”
Qingguo was helpless and could no longer refute. “All right, you can pay for today, but only this time. I must invite you next time and treat you to a meal.”
Cheng nodded in agreement. “Okay, next time, it’ll be your treat!”
The waiter walked up to these two men and asked, “Comrades, what do you want to eat?”
It was probably because he saw that Qingguo and Cheng were dressed a little better than Xiulan, so his attitude towards them was obviously much more polite.
Xiulan snorted softly in her heart, heh! Isn’t he a snob?
Cheng asked, “Do you have any meat here?”
Since he was there to treat his friend, he wanted to get Qingguo some delicious food.
If they could eat meat, then they had to eat meat.
The waiter shook his head. “I’m sorry. Whether it’s pork, beef, or mutton, they are all sold out already!”
“Then what else do you have here?” Cheng, just like Xiulan, asked with some disappointment.
“We have rice, then some flour-based and vegetables dishes.”
“That’s all? Nothing else?”
“Comrade, I’m sorry, our restaurant has limited ingredients. We haven’t gotten any good ingredients in the past two days and the supply is not enough for the restaurant, so these are the only dishes we can offer.”
Qingguo from the side hurriedly said, “Cheng, there is shortage of foodstuff everywhere and even restaurants often lack ingredients. Let’s just eat whatever they have, it’s fine as long as we can fill our stomachs, don’t be too particular about it!”
Cheng thought he could invite his fried to eat some delicious food, but they only had these things here, so he just ordered some dishes from this restaurant.
He ordered two bowls of noodles and he deliberately asked the waiter to add more serving into the bowls, because two grown men ate a little more. In addition, he ordered a bowl of stewed vermicelli with cabbage, a plate of stir-fried shredded potatoes, and a bowl of cabbage and egg drop soup.
