Chapter 1260: Reconciliation of the Century 1
"So, care to explain the rules to us, Lingling?" Huo Mian rarely saw Zhu Lingling so happy and was determined to go with the flow.
"Let me tell you guys the wager first. Whoever loses will have to put a thousand yuan on the table, and winner takes all, yeah?"
"You're obviously trying to dupe us out of money, girl…" Huo Mian laughed.
"Yup, that's exactly what I'm doing… so, do you have the guts to play?"
Huo Mian and Jiang Xiaowei knew Zhu Lingling pretty well, so they agreed to her wager before the latter even explained the rules…
"Miss Zhu Lingling, you're so beautiful and kind, can you please tell us the rules of the game now?" Gao Ran asked anxiously.
"The rules of the game are simple, we're telling jokes," Zhu Lingling finally revealed her conspiracy.
"Jokes? How's that an IQ-testing game?" Gao Ran was flabbergasted.
"We each tell a joke. If everyone laughs, that person wins. However, if one person doesn't laugh, whoever told the joke will have to put 1000 yuan in the middle of the table. The winner will take all the money, haha." Zhu Lingling was extremely proud of herself…
"Look at you, you're acting like you're going to win for sure…" Jiang Xiaowei laughed as she looked at Zhu Lingling.
"So, allow me to make a toast to everyone before each of you go on to tell the funniest joke you've ever heard!"
Then, Zhu Lingling picked up the bottle of wine and filled everyone's glasses.
Jiang Xiaowei was pregnant, so Zhu Lingling poured her a glass of water instead…
After they emptied their glass, Gao Ran volunteered himself. "Let me go first, everyone at the bureau would fall onto the floor laughing after listening to my jokes. They literally can't control themselves."
"Was that your joke?" Mr. Qin, sitting beside him, suddenly asked.
"Screw you, I haven't started yet, okay?" Gao Ran glared back at Qin Chu, sending Huo Mian and Jiang Xiaowei into nonstop laughter…
"Hurry up, don't waste our time." Zhu Lingling punched Gao Ran's waist with her fist.
Then, Gao Ran began telling his joke as if he were acting out a play, "A Buddhist monk was meditating when he suddenly saw a scoundrel, who pinned his long blade against the monk's neck.
Scoundrel: 'Stupid old man, give me all your money and I'll let you live.'
Buddhist Monk: 'Money is just a worldly possession, I'm not born with it, and I can't bring it with me when I die. Take them all, take them all.'
Then, the monk gave all his money to the scoundrel…
Scoundrel: 'This is your life savings, are you really willing?'
Buddhist Monk: "Buddhist practitioners all believe in karma. Something must've happened to us in our previous life for you to rob me in this life.'
Touched, the scoundrel asked, 'Master, I have sinned, can I still be saved?'
Buddhist Monk: 'Yes.'
Buddhist Monk: 'Put down your blade and devote yourself to Buddhism.'
Then, the scoundrel placed his blade on the ground and began repenting.
Then, the monk walked up to the scoundrel, picked up his blade off the ground, and pinned it to the scoundrel's neck. 'Give me back my money, you little b*tchass retard. Who the hell do you think you are?'"
After Gao Ran's lively story-telling, Huo Mian and Jiang Xiaowei burst out in laughter…
Qin Chu and Wei Liao acted more reserved and smiled shyly.
Zhu Lingling, on the other hand, didn't even show a hint of a smile…
"Hey, can't you save me some face?" Gao Ran complained, while Zhu Lingling stuck out her hand, "Stop with the nonsense, take out your wallet."
Gao Ran thought his joke was pretty funny; when he told it at the bureau, everyone laughed.
How did Zhu Lingling, a woman normally with an incredibly low laughing point, contain herself from laughing?
Helpless, Gao Ran had no choice to admit defeat and take out his wallet. Then, he placed 1,000 yuan in the basket in the middle of the table.
"Who's next?" Zhu Lingling asked, relishing in the situation.
Upon seeing her arrogant expression, Huo Mian muttered to Jiang Xiaowei, "I think Zhu Lingling is going to use all her might to dupe us today."
"I'll go." Seeing that no one else wanted to go, Wei Liao stood up.
Jiang Xiaowei tilted her head to look at her husband; she was curious as to just how good her husband's joke was going to be.
