Chapter 498: Receive with Guilt
The crowd gasped. How bold must she be to have the guts to say this Is it worth it for a Jizo coral
The answer was affirmative because the two parties werent simply fighting over a Jizo coral.
They were fighting over… reputation!
The matter had been blown up, so whoever backed away at this point would be admitting defeat.
Jiang Yuzhi and Xiahou Tingan represented their family clans behind them.
No matter if it were the Jiang family or the Xiahou family, they were all reputable aristocratic families here.
It would be too humiliating if they lost to this unknown nobody at Hundred Herbs Building.
Xiahou Tingan couldnt control his expression anymore as he looked at Duan Ziyu and sneered.
“Are you purposely going against my Xiahou family”
Chu Liuyue lightly chuckled and said, “Why do you say this, Second Young Master Xiahou After all, I liked this Jizo coral first, yet you increased the price and bid for it.
Why did it suddenly become us purposely going against you because we increased the bid amount”
Xiahou Tingan could not retort and was embarrassed. Even if I can continue to increase the price, I will definitely be lectured when I go home.
Besides, with the other party like this, they are obviously going to fight to the end.
If I let this snowball, the incident will just become bigger!
“Tingan, why arent you talking” Jiang Yuzhi knitted her intricately drawn brows.
“You must help me buy it! Are you just going to watch on as Im bullied by them”
Xiahou Tingan became increasingly frustrated. Who is the one being bullied now She just stood there and casually said a few sentences without doing anything, but Im the one being humiliated! Even if we really buy it, shell only be scolded for being willful when she goes back, but what about me Im not the only young master in the Xiahou family! They will most likely make a mountain out of a molehill for this!
“Tingan, Tingan” yelled Jiang Yuzhi in frustration.
Xiahou Tingan took a deep breath in before suppressing his anger.
He tidied his shirt, coughed, and looked at Duan Ziyu.
“Youre from the Black Guard It looks like youre a military officer.
From what I know, the salary of Black Guards military officers isnt high enough for you to be tossing money on the streets.
Im afraid your money is illegal, right”
There were unclean people everywhere, even amongst the Black Guard.
This military officer is so arrogant, and he throws money even more freely than young masters.
Itll be a wonder if theres nothing wrong with him!
Duan Ziyu straightened his back and stood like a standard gun.
“Im the Black Guards third military officer, Duan Ziyu.
I have been in the military for 11 years and killed 1,589 enemies.
I can use my life to guarantee you that Ive never done anything against my conscience or taken illegal money!”
His voice was cold and hard, and every single word was as if lightning zapped the ground.
“What you said previously, Second Young Master Xiahou, isnt just an insult to me, but an insult to the millions of Black Guards that protect the royal family.
Please take back your words!”
The crowd was taken aback before they were solemn and respectful. With this kind of military accolades, its more than enough for him to be promoted to another rank.
As guards that protected the Tianling Dynastys borders, they poured their hearts and souls into their duty, and they battled without caring about their lives.
Yet, they received an aristocratic childs insult in the end.
This was humiliating!
Xiahou Tingan was also taken aback by Duan Ziyus aura.
After all, he had been living a delicate life in Xi Ling City and was totally different from Duan Ziyu, who frequented the thin line between life and death.
The moment Duan Ziyu spoke up, he immediately felt guilty.
Even though the surrounding people didnt say much, they scolded him with their eyes.
“I-I just casually asked you about it.
If your money is legitimate, why dont you dare to say it” retorted Xiahou Tingan with thick skin.
Duan Ziyu sneered, “Second Young Master Xiahou, do we need to report to you how the Mu Residence gets our money”
Mu Residence Which Mu Residence Xiahou Tingan was dazed for a while before reacting. There is only one Mu Residence in the entire Xi Ling City—Black Guard Lieutenant, Mu Qinghes residence!
“Y-you work for Mu Qing—Lieutenant Mu” Xiahou Tingans voice was shaky.
The room became especially quiet.
Duan Ziyu said carefully, “If you dont believe me, Second Young Master Xiahou, you can follow me back to take a look.”
Xiahou Tingan immediately said, “No need!”
At Mu Qinghes residence, it was indeed all Black Guards.
I was still wondering why he looked so familiar! Mu Qinghe did bring him around before!
But Duan Ziyu was still an accompaniment after all, so Xiahou Tingan didnt even notice him.
This was why he didnt recognize him after so long.
Looking at Chu Liuyue and Qiang Wanzhou standing beside him, he asked uneasily, “Then—”
Chu is Mu Residences VIP,” said Duan Ziyu first.
Xiahou Tingan was stumped and couldnt say anything for a long time. I-I offended Mu Qinghe!
Jiang Yuzhi was also frightened when she heardMu Residence, and she panicked in her heart. Mu Qinghe is not one to be trifled with… This woman is actually related to Mu Qinghe If I knew this earlier, I wouldnt have fought with them!
“Second Young Master Xiahou, may I know if you want to continue bidding” asked Duan Ziyu.
Xiahou Tingans chest felt suffocated. Not to mention that I have no money now, its impossible for me to go against Mu Qinghe even if I did.
Wouldnt that be digging my own grave
Chu is Mu Residences VIP, then Ill let Ms.
Chu have this Jizo coral as a gift for Lieutenant Mu—”
“Second Young Master Xiahou, you dont have to be so polite.” Chu Liuyue suddenly spoke and looked at Xiahou Tingan and Jiang Yuzhi with a smiling face.
“Since you want it, well fight for it fairly.
Im just a woman with an ordinary background.
Lieutenant Mu is very generous, but Ill be receiving it with much guilt.
Im already embarrassed to have to trouble Lieutenant Mu for my room and board, so it wont be good if I use his authority and need you two to let me have it.
So, you really dont have to give in to me!”
This sentence made Xiahou Tingan so embarrassed that he wanted to dig a hole and jump into it himself. I just wanted to find an out for myself, but why is this woman so persistent
He kept silent for a while before clenching his teeth and said, “No need! At the end of the day, this Jizo coral is just a small toy! Ms.
Chu, if you want it, just take it! How can we fight for what you like”
Jiang Yuzhi anxiously said, “Tingan—”
“We still have something on, so well leave first.” Xiahou Tingan spoke really quickly, and he turned around to leave once he was done.
Jiang Yuzhi looked at Xiahou Tingan—who rapidly left—with a whole stomach filled with anger. Its fine that he didnt buy my items, yet he still left me alone and left!
She turned around to look at Chu Liuyue and angrily said, “Its all your fault!”
Chu Liuyue wasnt angry nor furious as she laughed and spoke with a sincere expression.
“Fourth Missy Jiang, you should thank me!”
Jiang Yuzhi was dazed.
“Thank you for what”
Chu Liuyue sighed and said pitifully, “Even though my background isnt as good as yours, I know the logic.
Men who refuse to spend on women arent reliable! Second Young Master Xiahous family is so outstanding, so why did he refuse to spend such a small amount of money on you Actually, I wouldve given myself an out and let you have the item if he continued increasing the price.
Its a pity…”
Jiang Yuzhi was enraged.
Her expression changed, and she left in a hurry.
Chu Liuyue retracted her gaze, and she lightly knocked on the crystal cupboard.
“I want this cupboard, that cupboard, and that wall over there.
I want everything inside.”
There was dead silence in the room.
Qiang Wanzhou couldnt help but ask, “Didnt you say that youre receiving that persons money with guilt”
Chu Liuyue chuckled and patted her own chest.
“Yes, but since Im already filled with guilt, lets make it more intense!”
