Chapter 10: Five Hundred Silvers (3)
Ye Yu smiled and said, “But, I’m willing. I don’t care what those old stubborn people have to say.”
The little black puppy was stunned.
However, Ye Yu looked somewhere else and said, “Speaking of which, the 500 silvers I have been saving up this month were gone in a flash. It’s quite regretful, so I think I should commemorate this. Why don’t I call you ‘500 silvers?’”
“Rejection denied. That’s it.” Ye Yu happily responded, “But, as a puppy, how can you just whimper like that? Shouldn’t you say woof, woof? Be good, bark for me.”
500 silvers lied on its stomach in humiliation and its tail drooped, ignoring Ye Yu.
The customers who heard of ‘Immortal Ye’ today waited a good long hour within the An Xiang Teahouse before seeing Lady Ye carrying a little black puppy in late.
“Whoa, Lady Ye, why are you only here now?”
The waiter who has been urged by the customers repeatedly saw Ye Yu from a distance and hurriedly went to welcome her in.
Ye Yu waved her hands and said, “Something came up, so I got delayed.”
“There are customers who have been waiting anxiously for you.”
“Waiting can help with their state of mind. How good is that? I won’t take their tuition fee this time.” Ye Yu carried 500 silvers in calmly.
The waiter’s lips twitched and wanted to say that thankfully, the customers who waited for a few hours hadn’t heard this, otherwise, those who weren’t in a great state of mind might faint at this awkward explanation.
Despite thinking this in his heart, the waiter hurried over.
In the teahouse, Ye Yu walked to her usual table and placed the little black puppy in her arms by the paper and ink-stone, before sitting down.
Everyone moved closer to take a look, asking, “Greater master Ye, what is this spiritual beast?”
“Listen to your own question. The fact that great master Ye brought it in must mean that it’s a spiritual beast!”
“Eh…why do I think it looks more and more like a puppy?”
“Well, you must’ve mistaken it for something else. I think it must be a spiritual beast related to dogs at least.”
The people by Ye Yu’s side enthusiastically argued and she didn’t care, instead she stroked the little black puppy who was glancing at the people with its pitch-black eyes.
“What? Do you feel as if you’re lucky to be able to be with me?”
500 silvers looked at her in disdain.
Ye Yu didn’t care either, shooting a look at the waiter before preparing for the first person.
However, this morning’s fortune-telling wasn’t successful. Before the first person was done, a group of people wearing military uniforms and carrying weapons entered the teahouse.
The waiter immediately welcomed them and asked, “What brought you guys over?”
“According to devil city’s general, Xuan Bin, we are here to arrest an assassin from the palace. This teahouse contains people of all sorts, so we can’t overlook this place. You must let us check everyone!”
How would the waiter dare to offend them? He hurriedly nodded and the other customers in the teahouse were angry, but didn’t announce it.
The devil world was unlike the immortal world as the devil palace was in charge of the entire border. If they actually angered these people, they wouldn’t get off easy either.
Not long later, the group had searched the entire teahouse and then they returned behind the leader.
Ye Yu observed the other party’s expression, but clearly found nothing.
Then, she heard the person announcing to the waiter, “If you see someone who injured their left leg, you have to report it. Do you understand?”
“Yes, yes, yes…” The waiter hurriedly answered.
The group then left, but this made Ye Yu think of something.
If she remembered correctly, didn’t 500 silvers fractured his left hind leg?
But she dismissed this thought immediately and laughed at herself.
There have been too many strange things happening that she even started to let her imagination run wild.
While Ye Yu laughed at herself, she didn’t notice that 500 silvers who was curiously watching her doing her job was glancing coldly at the departing military troops.
