Chapter 345: To Miss (2)
He muttered, “Can I really go in?”
This was the place where rich scholars and talents would come. He was a poor scholar, will he be discovered and driven out if he enter?
Gong Yimo said indifferently, “What I told you to memorize last night, as long as you successfully memorized it, it will be fine. You don’t have to worry about other things.” After she finished speaking, she threw a pouch containing silver at him. “This is the down payment.”
Looking at the silver in his hand, Scholar Li Huai walked into the restaurant. As soon as he entered, a receptionist immediately directed him to the room that was already reserved… Gong Yimo watched the scene from the entrance with an unreadable expression on her face.
Gong Yimo became cautious again, she didn’t think much of it but she felt that it was important for her to do this. It would’ve been extremely awkward if she met Gong Che by accident, even if he might not be able to recognize her…
Gong Yimo touched her face and became a little more confident.
The poor scholar Li Huai was led to an extremely luxurious private room. He was curious and was about to look around when he remembered Gong Yimo’s words; he restrained himself.
In a short while, a young man entered the private room. When the young man saw Li Huai, he frowned and sized him up.
“Nice to meet you, my surname is Xu, I am Xu Yuan. May I ask you for your distinguished name?”
Li Huai was at a loss and wasn’t really sure what to do, so he quickly got up and greeted him.
“I am Li Huai. Nice to meet you gentleman Xu.”
Gong Yimo was sitting downstairs at the main hall. She couldn’t help but be surprised when she saw the person was Xu Yuan. Her eyes followed Xu Yuan all the way upstairs, she didn’t expect him to follow after the crown prince.
She looked at herself and felt that there was no way Xu Yuan would be able to see through her disguise. It was better for her to meet him in person, but after thinking about it, she changed her mind again. Forget it, let’s wait a little while longer.
Xu Yuan was very disappointed when he saw Li Huai. Of course, there were people who are even more disappointed than him, that person is Gong Che who was in the next room.
He had been sizing and probing Li Huai ever since he entered the private room, but he couldn’t see a shadow of Mo’er in him.
At first, he thought that Mo’er had first sent someone out to test the water. But who would’ve known that although Li Huai appeared timid, he turned out to be a literary talent with his organized and clear answers when questioned.
Gong Che was disappointed, he got up to leave.
He passed by the main hall when he left, he didn’t look up because he was in a depressed mood. But at this moment, a string of violent cough could be heard. He subconsciously turned around and found that person’s rear view to be similar to Mo’er.
He stared at that person and even walked a few steps towards the man.
In the next second, the coughing man suddenly slapped the table and started yelling.
“Waiter! Come here! Did you give this grandpa wine or horse urine?!”
The man’s vulgar and rough voice disappointed Gong Che once again! He stopped walking toward the man, and left the restaurant without ever looking back.
At this time, the waiter was full of grievances as he walked forward, “Customer… this is our restaurant’s best wine.”
When Gong Yimo saw Gong Che leave, her tense shoulders finally relaxed as she let out a sigh of relief. God knew how nervous she was when she heard Gong Che’s footsteps approaching her!
She patted her chest quickly with her hand, trying to calm herself down. Then, she stuffed a small piece of silver towards the waiter.
“Sorry, I was joking earlier. I’m sorry!”
As she apologized, she stuffed another piece of silver towards the waiter. Even though the waiter was somewhat confused, he left contently with the money, leaving Gong Yimo speechless at the table.
Gong Che, he really came!
