“Speaking of which, isn’t it time for you to leave?” The corner of Gu Ruoyun’s brow lifted slightly as she looked at Zuo Shangchen with the imitation of a smile on her face, “Or do you need me to send you to the door?”
Zuo Shangchen’s expression was a little aggrieved as he said: “Little fellow, I helped you out at the very least. Is this how you treat people who helped you?”
“Then what do you want?”
“Um,” Zuo Shangchen stroked his chin with his fingers, body indolent as he lounged on his chaise. He tossed another coquettish look at Gu Ruoyun, and then he sent her an extremely bewitching smile. “I don’t want much… Since I helped you just now, how about a hug?”
Gu Ruoyun smiled; her pretty face was full of humour.
Following that, she paused for a moment before saying: “Shopkeeper Zhao, go and hug him.”
In an instant, Zuo Shangchen’s face turned black. Didn’t this girl know that he had mysophobia? Normally, he absolutely wouldn’t let anyone near his body, even the female servants by his side. Of course, that was excluding that fellow Gu Shengxiao. He had just been teasing her with those words; who knew that she would take it so seriously, even ordering some old man to hug him…
Seeing Shopkeeper Zhao approaching him, Zuo Shangchen was so disgusted that goosebumps almost rose over his whole entire body. Especially that smile on that wrinkled old face: it was the same brand of evil as a big bad wolf’s look toward a little white bunny.
Swoosh swoosh swoosh!
At this moment, the many beautiful female servants drew their swords all at once and pointed them towards Shopkeeper Zhao. Their eyes were as cold as their blades, like it would only take a second to kill a person who didn’t know their place…
Shopkeeper Zhao hesitated and turned back to look at Gu Ruoyun, while the smile on Gu Ruoyun’s face grew even more pronounced.
“Fourth Prince, wasn’t it you who wanted a hug? I’m giving it to you, so what’s with the attitude?”
Zuo Shangchen flipped open his fan and smiled: “Little fellow, take it that I’ve lost to you this time. However, I didn’t think that you would be connected to the Dongfang family. As far as I know, this Hundred Herb Hall seemed to belong to Dongfang Shaoze, and not long ago, Dongfang Shaoze seemed to have given Hundred Herb Hall to someone else. Now I see that that someone was you!”
He didn’t miss that Hundred Herb Hall’s shopkeeper had obeyed Gu Ruoyun’s order.
It looks like the rumours weren’t true. Gu Ruoyun had not joined Hundred Herb Hall out of some sheer luck and pity from Shopkeeper Zhao, but this Hundred Herb Hall belonged to her!
Thinking up to here, Zuo Shangchen narrowed his eyes and smiled: “You hold so many secrets on your body; I really want to explore them…”
“Then you’re destined to be disappointed,” Gu Ruoyun sneered, “Shopkeeper Zhao, send our guest out.”
Hearing Gu Ruoyun’s order to send out the guest, Zuo Shangchen revealed a languid smile: “Xiao Yun’er, one day, I’ll dig all your secrets out.”
Following that, he turned to the female servants by his side and said: “Let’s go.”
“Yes, My Lord.”
The female servants, while still holding their swords, gripped their fists in greeting before picking up the sedan and turning towards the door.
In the instant they turned, the indolent smile disappeared from Zuo Shangchen’s lips and he shut his eyes slowly, sinking into deep thought.
His destiny laid in the east? Was the person who would change his fate really in the east? However, his teacher was such an upright and prestigious person: why would he lie?
As his thoughts came to this point, Zuo Shangchen’s face carried a bitter smile…
“The person who can change my fate and the absolute genius that Teacher observed are both in the east. Only, Azure Dragon Country is so huge, I don’t know how I’m going to find the person I need…”
