The shop assistant was stunned.
From the tone of this man, he was even more of an existence that wasn’t to be underestimated!
He secretly sized up Gu Zitang’s clothes. He was wearing a high-grade silk robe and even the jade he had on looked expensive!
It was over, it was over. They could not afford to offend either side!
Gu Nuo’er had initially wanted to pull her brother away.
However, at this moment, she suddenly saw two elegant figures through the open door behind the shop assistant.
They were two girls who didn’t seem to be that old either. They were holding a piece of fabric and sizing it up.
Gu Nuo’er recognized them with one look.
Weren’t these two girls the bad people who had thrown the meow meow into the water the other day by the lake in the palace?!
The child held a grudge against them, and she was immediately unhappy.
Her little hand tugged at her brother’s sleeve. “Second Brother, let’s go. I don’t like these two people!”
When Gu Zitang heard that, he immediately looked inside and could only vaguely see two figures inside.
He raised his eyebrows, crossed his arms, and wore a cold cold smile, seeming very much like a profligate.
His sister didn’t like them? That made things a lot easier.
Gu Zitang carried Gu Nuo’er in his arms and consoled her in a gentle voice, “Baby Nuo, just watch and see how your brother torments the people you hate.”
He looked at the shop assistant and asked, “How much did the two of them pay to clear out the shop? I’ll pay double.”
The shop assistant was taken by surprise. “This… Master, there’s no need for that. I’ll go in and mediate things. Is that alright?”
Gu Zitang was unyielding. His rich family background made him very confident.
“You don’t have to mediate things. I can’t be bothered to reason with them. If they want to compete with me, let’s talk with money. Go in and tell them now.
An important customer has come. Chase the two of them out. Get them to scram. If you can’t do it, after the time for one incense to burn has passed, I’ll get my guards to go in and clear the place.
The shop assistant was shocked. He said with a bitter expression, “Sir, please don’t make things difficult for me. I’m just a shop assistant. How would I dare to chase them away?
They are the daughters of the Minister of Justice and the Minister of Rites respectively. They usually come to book the entire place and don’t let anyone in. Only after they’ve left can others enter the shop.”
The shop assistant had thought that after he had reported the family background of the two girls, the young master before them would feel scared.
Unexpectedly, Gu Zitang sneered. “I’ve seen the ministers from the Ministry of Justice and Ministry of Rites. They look very humble and gentle.
Why didn’t I know that there were two such unreasonable girls in their families? They aren’t even as sensible as my three-year-old sister?”
With that, the shop assistant was completely stunned.
The ministers from the Ministry of Rites and the Minister of Justice were both second-grade1 officials!
Why did this distinguished young master sound as if he was referring to his family’s servants when addressing them?!
Gu Zitang insisted and the shop assistant wasn’t able to dissuade him.
Left with no choice, he could only turn around and enter the shop to convey Gu Zitang’s words to the two young misses.
“What?!” The girl dressed in a yellow dress was instantly displeased. “Who is he to challenge me?”
Back at home, she was also a pampered girl, well-treated by everyone,
Therefore, she said even more arrogantly, “Alright, didn’t he offer to pay a price that is two times higher? I’ll add another fold to it. If he’s that capable, get him to continue to add more to the pot.”
In the end, she even spat.
“I really don’t know where this ignorant country bumpkin came from. How can he have more money than me?”
Everyone knew that her father, the Minister of Justice, doted on her the most and never restricted her allowance.
The person outside had finally encountered a tough nut to crack today!
The shop assistant could only continue to run out to pass the message.
After a while, he returned with cold sweat. “Young Miss, the young master outside has increased the price by four times.”
