If it had been anyone else, they would have chosen to escape right at this moment, out of fear that the youth would suddenly change his mind and kill them.
However, Ling Yu wasn’t normal.
This residence and its surroundings were quite peaceful, no matter what, she had to buy it as a gift for the crown prince. If she could gain the favour of the crown prince, she might even be able to become his consort…
Thinking of this, Ling Yu took a calming breath, then turned to the middle-aged man: “Your residence is too expensive! Although the environment isn’t too bad, it’s not worth 8 million. I’ll give you 800 thousand. Are you going to sell or not?”
“Miss, surely you’re joking? 800 thousand? Is this a robbery?” The middle-aged man laughed in ridicule, “I’ve already said it, that price is too low, absolutely not!”
Hearing so, Ling Yu raised her chin haughtily as she said: “Think carefully. This is a gift that this lady is going to give to the crown prince. This is an opportunity to get into the crown prince’s graces, and you’re going to waste it just like that? I’m not saying that you’re stupid, but that’s a completely stupid move! You should know, there are so many people out there trying to curry favour with the crown prince. If it wasn’t for me, Ling Yu, do you think you would have gotten such a chance? At least I’m not asking you to give me 8 million for this chance, I’m already being especially generous. Furthermore, I’m not taking this for free, aren’t I giving you 800 thousand?”
From Ling Yu’s view, the crown prince was someone so high up that most people wouldn’t even have the chance to curry favour with him. By sending such an opportunity to his door, he should actually take out a few million gold to thank her. Since a great chance like this wasn’t something that just anyone could get.
The middle-aged man didn’t know whether to laugh or cry. His ancestral home was getting stolen away, and he still had to thank her? He had never heard of such absurd logic in his life.
“Miss Ling, my wife has contracted a serious disease, and only the Ghost Doctor can cure her. However, the Ghost Doctor is asking for 8 million. I wouldn’t be selling my ancestral home if I didn’t have a choice. Please don’t make things difficult for us, I really don’t have any other choice.”
The Ghost Doctor?
Hearing the man’s words, Gu Ruoyun’s heart shook slightly, but she did not say anything more.
“You, you’re really beyond stupid,” Ling Yu sneered, “Your wife is just a single lowly life, how could she compare to letting the crown prince obtain a comfortable residence? If you manage to connect with the crown prince, your prospects will be bright. Even the number one beauty in the world will throw herself into your arms. I reckon your wife wouldn’t be so selfish as to ruin your future, otherwise what’s the use in keeping a woman like that?”
The expression on the middle-aged man’s face turned uglier and uglier: “Miss Ling, I’m not refusing to give His Highness this residence. As long as you bring out 8 million gold, this residence shall belong to you!”
Just as Ling Yu was about to speak further, Gu Ruoyun’s voice cut in.
“Could you sell this residence to me? I’m willing to give you 8 million gold for it!”
The middle-aged man’s heart lifted in joy, and he turned towards Gu Ruoyun.
This time, he carefully observed the young girl before him.
Her pretty face still looked somewhat soft and immature. Her body was not fully grown, making her look a little thin, as if she were undernourished. Only, that young girl carried a slight smile, and her eyes were bright, lively and full of spirit. Perhaps she wasn’t stunning at first glance, but she was very comfortable on the eyes.
“Little lady, you’re looking to buy this place?”
“Indeed,” Gu Ruoyun smiled, “As for the money, you can go to Hundred Herb Hall and look for Elder Yu, he’ll give it to you. He’ll also be the one to complete the transfer, only…”
