MINE ALONE - Season 8 Episode 37
The assistant’s eyes were filled with disdain as he hurriedly replied to Tang Ruge. It was indeed as Eldest Miss had expected. Qiao Xi was just a country bumpkin. Even if she became Mrs. Gu, it could not change the country bumpkin traits in her.
In the beginning, Qiao Xi was still adamant about rejecting the invitation. However, when she heard that the seats were reserved in Qingyuan Pavilion, she directly got into the car. She definitely knew that only people with status could enter Qingyuan Pavilion. She did not have the qualifications at all.
If it were not for the young miss inviting Qiao Xi, Qiao Xi would probably never be able to enter a place like Qingyuan Pavilion in her life. Now that she had the chance to enter and look around, she would definitely not refuse.
Song Shiyu stood where he was and watched Qiao Xi get into the Tang family’s car. After hesitating for a moment, he called Gu Zheng. “President, the Tang family is bringing Young Madam to Qingyuan Pavilion. I heard that Tang Ruge want to apologize, but I don’t think it’s that simple. Do you need me to send someone to follow them?”
Gu Zheng’s tone was indifferent. “There’s no need. She can handle it herself.”
Song Shiyu: “…” That was right! With Young Madam’s character and methods, those who bullied her would definitely not have a good ending.
“If you’re really worried…” Gu Zheng hesitated for a moment. “You can follow her as well. You can help her when she needs it.”
Song Shiyu knew that the president was still worried. As the caring assistant, he had to follow the young madam.
Qingyuan Pavilion was a high-end restaurant. Ten years ago, it suddenly rose in Li City and instantly became a gathering place for people of high society. Everyone came here to show their status.
This restaurant was hidden, but as long as one passed through the narrow alley, one would be able to see the antique courtyard. It gave one the feeling of returning to ancient times. Moreover, the dishes here were very rich. There was a dish with crab meatballs. It was made with high-quality crabs and many other precious ingredients. Only five servings were sold a day.
Qingyuan Pavilion only received eight tables of guests every day, so people might have to reserve their seats for half a month in advance. This meant that Tang Ruge had planned this out beforehand.
At this moment, Tang Ruge and Tang Lingyun were sitting on their seats in gorgeous clothes, waiting for Qiao Xi to arrive.
Tang Lingyun was indignant. “Sister! Why did you invite her here?! Is a country bumpkin worthy of eating in such a place?”
Tang Ruge’s expression was indifferent as she said gently, “Lingyun, we were able to come to Qingyuan Pavilion because Master gave his spot to us. This is such a precious opportunity. As the saying goes, it’s better to make friends than enemies. We can take this opportunity to invite Xi Xi over. I don’t think she’s ever been to Qingyuan Pavilion before. Maybe she won’t target us anymore after this.”
Tang Lingyun snorted. What right did that country bumpkin have to compare herself to her sister? She was simply overestimating herself!
She shouted, “Alright, let’s let Qiao Xi come! You’ve already become Mr. Qi Zhong’s last disciple. I want to see what qualifications she has to compare herself to you!”
At this moment, footsteps came from the door. The two of them thought that it was Qiao Xi, but they did not expect it to be a waiter.
The waiter had heard their conversation from outside the door. They were actually talking bad about the eldest miss behind her back, so he entered and reminded them, “I’m sorry, ladies. Your voices are too loud and will affect the other customers.”
Tang Lingyun was embarrassed. This was her first time coming to such a place. She did not expect there to be so many rules. She could not even speak loudly.
As soon as the waiter was done speaking, Qiao Xi had already walked to the door. The waiter looked at her and left without saying anything.
As soon as Tang Ruge saw Qiao Xi, she immediately smiled warmly. “Xi Xi, you’re here! There was a misunderstanding between us previously. It’s all my fault. You’ve already received the Eternal Winter Snow painting, right? Do you like it?”
Qiao Xi said indifferently, “I threw it in the warehouse. It’s nothing much.”
“What? You left such a precious painting in the warehouse?” Tang Lingyun had long forgotten about the reminder she got and shouted, “You’re truly a country bumpkin who don’t know anything about paintings! How embarrassing!”
“Miss Tang lost a bet and had to give that painting to me. Why do you care where I put it? I’m even willing to burn it,” Qiao Xi retorted indifferently.
Tang Ruge bit her lip tightly. Qiao Xi was really sharp-tongued. The Eternal Winter Snow painting was her father’s favorite painting. It had always been hung in the study and had to be carefully wiped every day. However, Qiao Xi actually threw that painting into the warehouse where it would collect dust. Yet Qiao Xi actually felt proud about it?
