Su Manor’s Young Lady?

It was the Su Manor’s Young Lady!

Ye Xiang was treating people to tea and she packed up ten boxes of Tianxiangjin1Heavenly Scent Well Tea, this is really too…..unmodest!

Ten boxes of Tianxiangjin is ten thousand gold. On this busy day, all the customers in the teahouse today only drank away a thousand gold.

Everyone looks at one another.

Ye Xiang was stunned for a while, but started smiling and turned his head to everyone. “Now do you feel even in your hearts? I won seven thousand gold from you guys, but I still lost four thousand gold. Compared to you, I am the biggest loser today.

Everyone started coughing.

Chen Shu wondered, “Didn’t Su Manor’s Young Lady go to the border with General Su? Only Madam Su was brought back to the Imperial City. How could she pack ten boxes of Tianxiangjin from the Yipin Xiang Teahouse?” After saying so, he looked at the Shopkeeper, “Have you gotten it wrong?”

The Shopkeeper shook his head. “Your servant definitely had not mistaken. It is the Su Manor’s Young Lady. Your servant has spent most of his life in Yipin Xiang Teahouse. In addition to reading the account book, this skill of mines for recognizing people is my only prided talent. The Su Manor’s Young Lady seems to have just entered the Imperial City from outside, only drank three teas, listened to some storytelling for a while, and after hearing Shi-zi’s invitation, she packed up ten boxes of Tianxiangjin and took it away.”

Qi Shu was surprised. “So, we were still drinking tea in the teahouse at that time? Why didn’t we see her?”

“She was downstairs, and you Gong-zi2Formally addressing for Young Man all have been in the grandeur room.” The shopkeeper said.

“Then why didn’t you tell us? What were you plotting? Do you think this money was easy to earn?”

The Shopkeeper looked at Ye Xiang and lowered his head. “Your servant thinks that it has been a troublesome autumn. The Su Manor’s Young Lady also has a special status, it is better to not make a big deal in case it gets to the palace…”

Chen Shu’s anger retreated and look at Ye Xiang.

Ye Xiang reached out and touched the head of the lion and smiled at the group. “It really is true that only women and villains are difficult to raise, really shouldn’t mess with them. Now you know why I don’t dare to marry her? If you don’t want to marry a tigress like her and be controlled, in the future if you see her be sure to stay far away.”

Everyone thought of the Tianxiangjin, which is worth ten thousand gold, being taken away by her so easily, they nodded with the same feeling.

Chen Shu asked, “Is there still stocks of Tianxiangjin in the teahouse?”

The Shopkeeper shook his head. “Lady Su asked for all the Tianxiangjin in the teahouse, a total of ten boxes of new tea, all given to her. This year, Tianxiangjin only has 11 boxes. Gong-zi together you’ve all drank away one box, so now there is none. If you wish to drink Tianxiangjin, will have to wait for next year.”

Shen Qi quickly blinked, “Why were you being so honestly? Just say that there is only one box in the teahouse and give it to her would be sufficient.”

The Shopkeeper sighed, “Lady Su said to the young assistant, she wants all the Tianxiangjin, if the teahouse is not honest and did not give them all to her, if she finds out that there is Tianxiangjin that comes out from the teahouse, she would set fire and burn the teahouse, making this century-old brand disappear into nothingness. The Commander General Su Manor right now is very famed, and Lady Su hadn’t even arrived at the Imperial City and already has the Emperor and Empress Dowager thinking of her, not to say just burning down the teahouse, even if she wants to burn the whole street. I am afraid that no one can say no.”

“That makes sense!” Qi Shu nodded.

Shen Qi inhaled, “Heaven! This Lady Su’s heart is cruel!”

Chen Shu turned to Ye Xiang, “Comparable with you.”

Ye Xiang reached out and patted the lion, turning to Chen Shu, “Bite him.”

The lion’s hair suddenly puffed out and it jumped after Chen Shu.

Chen Shu quickly pulled out his sword, and jumped 3 yard high up to the roof of the teahouse. Angrily asked Ye Xiang, “Have you gone mad? Telling it to bite me?”

The lion also jumped up wanting to climb onto the roof.

Chen Shu held his sword and pointing below, “If it dares to come up, I will kill it and make your training it for nothing you believe it or not?”

Ye Xiang heard his words and slowly looked up, taking a careless glance at Chen Shu. “Come back.”

The lion sucked back it’s puffed-up hair and returned to Ye Xiang’s side.

Ye Xiang pet its head again and said to Chen Shu, ” I was just pulling a small joke.”

“This is joking? You actually wanted my life right? If I jumped a little slower, I would enter his bloody mouth.” Chen Shu put away his sword and jumped off the roof.”

“I slept for three months and wake up to see you all one by one like you’ve become disabled. Don’t even know how to hunt anymore, so I’m just helping you recover. If still so wasted, there’s no more playing around later.” After Ye Xiang finished and said to the Shopkeeper, “Tomorrow I will take four thousand gold from my manor, for the rest ask from them, each person a thousand gold.”

“Yes.” The Shopkeeper nodded.

Ye Xiang turned and left the teahouse, the lion following behind him.

“Hey, where are you going?” Shen Qi shouted.

“Going back to the manor for dinner, I’m starving to death.” Ye Xiang said.

“Let’s eat outside,” Shen Qi said. “You been asleep for three months and finally woke up. Today we have to have to drink some.”

“I’m fine with drinking, but who is treating? You?” Ye Xiang said without turning back.

Shen Qi stunned, “I lost a thousand gold to you, I am tight handed3broke.”

“I lost four thousand gold, my hands are tighter,” Ye Xiang continued to move forward.

“Who asked you to open invitation for a day of tea?” Shen Qi rolled his eyes.

“Under a blissful moment,” Ye Shoudao.

Shen Qi was completely speechless and turned to look at the others.

The others shrugged together, a thousand dollars was not a small amount. In the near days, it looks everyone would be tight handed.

Ye Xiang was far ahead, one man and one lion disappeared into the street.

Qi Shu turned back and wondering at Chen Shu. “Why did he suddenly get angry with you?”

Hearing that, Chen Shu became angry. “I just said that the Su Manor’s Young Lady was comparable with him and he got angry and let the lion bite me.”

Qi Shu was momentarily stunned and then suddenly laughed. “He seems to not want anything to do with the Su Manor’s Young Lady.”

“I guess the Su Manor’s Young lady is ugly.” Chen Shu said angrily.

Qi Shu shook his head. “I’ve asked and heard that the Su Manor’s Young Lady is a natural beauty and inherits the beauty of Madam Su.”

“Since she inherited Madam Su’s beauty, so she probably also inherited General Su’s bad temper.” Chen Shu said, “If not ugly, then is a fearsome warrior.”

Qi Shu hearing so believed more of the latter and nodded. “Should be it. So even though Ye Xiang heard that the Emperor intended to have him marry Lady Su, he tries avoiding it with all he can, even though the Su Manor’s is so reputated now it doesn’t work on him.”

Chen Shu sneer, “If talking about reputation, the Su Manor now is no more so than the Rong-an Manor in the past? Even if the Rong-an Manor is now fallen, it is not necessary to kiss up to the Su Manor, and marry the Su Manor’s Young Lady.”

“That’s true.” Qi Shu nodded. “Ye Xiang doesn’t need to kiss up to General Su, so not marrying is ok.”

“Let it go to Xu Yun Chu.” Shen Qi clicked his tongue.

“The Empress Dowager has been so troublesome these years, the Emperor has long already become impatient. The Xu family already has two queens, but still not satisfied, they also want to taint the military power, really is dreaming. The Emperor is weak, but not stupid. Xu Yun Chu wants to marry Lady Su? Unless the kingdom changed its surname.” Chen Shu said in disdain.

“Hey, you want to die, you dare to say these things.” Qi Shu covered Chen Shu’s mouth.

Chen Shu reached out and pushed him away. “Since there is no wine to drink, let’s each go back to their own manor.”

Shen Qi nodded. “Ye Xiang has returned to his manor. What are we doing here? Go, let’s all return to our manor.”

Everyone nodded and leaving from the entrance of the teahouse, returning to their own manor.
