As the goddess in the minds of countless people in Banta City and the surrounding cities, because of her outstanding appearance and aura, there were many people who turned on the street and she attracted people’s gazes.
When Xu Yi was window shopping with her, there would be countless looks of admiration and jealousy. There were even more looks of shock when looking at Still and there were even a few people who revealed looks of greed.
But no matter how shocked those people were from seeing Still, they would have scruples and restrained themselves because of Xu Yi beside her.
But this man that they met now, his eyes revealed an incomparably strong look of greed that he simply didn’t hide at all. When Xu Yi saw it, he immediately couldn’t help tightly knitting his brows.
When he turned to look at Still, he found that she had a strange reaction, so Xu Yi asked, “Is he an acquaintance?”
Still was only stunned for a bit before she revealed a deep look of disgust and gave a slight nod, “Un, he is Vincent.”
“Vincent?” Hearing this name, the first thing Xu Yi thought of was the Armani Chamber of Commerce’s chairman Vincent. After thinking for a bit, he finally remembered that Akali had mentioned this name before. It was the male student that Still had liked back when she attended the Lampuri Royal Academy.
Thinking of this, Xu Yi turned and seriously looked over this Vincent.
Putting aside the look in his eyes that made Xu Yi very unhappy, based on just his outer appearance, this Vincent seemed like a very outstanding fellow. Not only was he tall and strong, his face was very good, with close to perfect proportions. Coordinating with the luxuriously made clothes that he was wearing, if he was placed on earth, he could be considered a “tall, right, and handsome man”.
This kind of man was indeed like the white horse prince that many little girls dreamed of, it was no wonder Still liked him at first.
After looking over Vincent, Xu Yi’s eyes fell onto the girl beside Vincent.
This girl wasn’t as shocking as Still, but she was still quite good looking with a weak aura to her. When she was placed by Vincent’s side, it created a sharp contrast.
Seeing Vincent holding the girl by the waist, Xu Yi asked Still in a somewhat strange voice, “Who is this girl? It seems like she’s quite close to him.”
“She is the one I mentioned before, Vincent’s fiancee.” Still replied in a small voice. She took another look at Vincent before turning while holding Xu Yi’s hand, preparing to leave.
Who would have thought that when they prepared to leave, Vincent would suddenly cross the street and run in front of Still, blocking the two of them.
“Hey, beautiful Still, when did you arrive in Anvilmar City? Why didn’t you contact me beforehand? I could have properly entertained you.” Vincent revealed a graceful smile, as he said to Still with a loud laugh.
“What would I contact you for?” Still looked at Vincent. Although her eyes were filled with disgust, she didn’t want to argue with him in public, so her expression was considered quite calm, “Grandfather and I, as well as some friends had some business in Anvilmar City, so we didn’t plan on bothering anyone.”
“How is it a bother?” Vincent shouted in an exaggerated voice, “We were the best of friends back in school and as long as you come to Anvilmar City, how could I not entertain you? Since Great Magician Camilla is also here, then that is even better. Please tell his excellency Great Magician that I am sending my invitation right now and I hope that you and his excellency Great Magician will come to be our guests tonight, we will treat you with the highest honour.”
“Want to entertain us?” Still looked at him finding it a bit funny, “I think you should ask the opinion of your fiancee first.”
“You mean Michelle? Relax, how could Michelle not agree, don’t you think so dear Michelle?” Vincent turned to the girl who looked rather hopeless as she followed him.
The girl called Michelle looked up at Still and a depressed look appeared on her face before she lowered her head again. She replied in a soft voice, “Un…..I…..I don’t mind.”
Xu Yi and Still looked at each other, instantly noticing that Michelle had a rather weak personality. It was no wonder that even though Vincent had a fiancee, he dared to treat Still like that.
“Look, I told you Michelle would definitely agree. She is very hospitable, isn’t that right, Michelle?” Vincent asked Michelle again.
Michelle still had her head down as she softly gave an “un” sound.
Xu Yi knit his brows seeing this, thinking that if Michelle was to get married to Vincent, that wouldn’t be a good marriage.
Of course, he didn’t care.
Hearing Michelle’s response, Vincent proudly looked at Still, “See, Michelle doesn’t care. Still, you should come by tonight with Great Magician Camilla, I will head back now and have the servants prepare.”
“Hey, even if your fiancee agrees, it doesn’t mean that I agree. Then again, even if I agree, you have to ask if he agrees or not.” Still pointed at Xu Yi.
“Him?” Vincent seemed like he only noticed Xu Yi and revealed a look of surprise as he looked over at him. His eyes passed over Xu Yi and Still holding hands and he narrowed his eyes as he revealed a look of hostility. He said with a cold snort, “Who is this fellow?”
“Be more polite!” Still reprimanded him, “He is Xu Yi and he’s my boyfriend. If you want to invite me over, if he doesn’t agree, I definitely won’t go.”
“Xu Yi?” Vincent looked over Xu Yi and shook his head, “I’ve never heard this name before, you’re not a noble from Anvilmar City, right? Could it be that you are a noble from that small Banta City?”
“You really are ignorant. Don’t you know that Xu Yi is……”
Still wanted to give a brief introduction to who Xu Yi was, but Xu Yi stopped her.
Xu Yi looked at Vincent and asked, “Mister Vincent, I’ve heard Akali mention you before. If I didn’t remember wrong, you should be from the Jole Family, right?”
Vincent was stunned, “Akali mentioned me to you? That’s right, I’m from the Jole Family, what about it?”
“Since you’re from the Jole Family, that’s much more simple. I don’t think you need to invite Still and me to be your guest. If nothing unexpected happens, we should be coming in two days.” Xu Yi said with a smile.
“You’re coming?” Vincent looked at Xu Yi in surprise before giving a cold laugh, “You think that you’re an honoured guest like young miss Still and Great Magician Camilla? Our Jole Family wouldn’t care about a little fellow like you,”
Vincent turned to Still after saying this and revealed a pained look as he said, “Still, if it is because I hurt you last time, so you found this fellow to be your boyfriend to make me angry, I really am sorry. Actually, after you left last time, my heart has been filled with regret and I even went three days without eating and drinking. Do you know? I’ve always been thinking about you during this time. When I saw you again today, my heart almost exploded from happiness, I……”
“Wait!” Still reached out her hand to stop Vincent from continuing with his speech that made her break out in goosebumps. She looked at him with a look of disbelief, “I say, Vincent, Michelle is here and she is your fiancee! You’re actually saying all of this to me in front of her? You don’t care about her feelings at all?”
“Fiancee?” Vincent turned to look at Michelle and he said with a bitter smile, “Still, you should know that the so-called fiancee was an arrangement between families. You can ask Michell if you don’t believe me, neither of us are willing to accept this. I only like you in my heart. If you give me a chance, I can even talk to the family and have them cancel this engagement! I will marry no one else but you!”
Still looked at Vincent in a daze for a while, she simply couldn’t believe that there was someone with such thick skin in this world!
Turning to look at Michelle on the side, she saw that she was looking down without saying a word, as if silently agreeing with what Vincent said.
After a long while, Still let out a long sigh and shook her head. Without another word, she pulled Xu Yi away.
Vincent behind them kept calling out to Still, but she moved even faster and quickly disappeared around the corner with Xu Yi.
When they couldn’t hear Vincent’s shouting anymore, Xu Yi finally couldn’t hold back his laughter.
“What are you laughing at?” Still snappily looked at Xu Yi.
“Because it’s just too…..too funny.” Xu Yi looked at Still’s angry face and he couldn’t help smiling, “It really has opened my worldview today. There’s actually such a shameless person, I’m really dying from laughter.”
“Humph! Although I already knew that he was shameless from the matter last time, I never thought that he would be even more shameless than I thought. It really angers me to death!” Still angrily said.
“What are you angry about?” Xu Yi said with a smile, “It’s like you said last time, you should be happy. For such a shameless fellow, the sooner you can see his true colours, that is a good thing. To be honest, I really don’t understand, what did you like about him before? Don’t you think that this kind of person is laughable?”
Still’s face turned a bit red as she angrily said, “I was very weak before. I was still a young girl back in school and I only liked him because he was handsome, he also had quite the demeanor before. Actually I never had contact with him that much, so of course I didn’t know that he was this shameless.”
“Then I’m even more confused. Still, you are such a beautiful girl, for that fellow to not endlessly chase you back in school, it really is a bit unbelievable.” Xu Yi said.
“I was focused on studying when I was in school and had as little contact with male students as much as possible, so he didn’t have a chance at all. To be honest, thinking about it now, when I said that I liked him, I only felt like he was the white horse prince of my dreams, I didn’t really like him that much.” Still explained.
“This should be the fantasies that every young girl has, right?” Xu Yi teased.
“What? It was my unreal fantasy, you have an opinion about it?” Still glared at Xu Yi.
“No, no, no, how could I have an opinion? I should be very blessed, that you abandoned this fantasy after meeting me. Otherwise with how I’m not handsome, you wouldn’t have liked me.”
Still suddenly grabbed Xu Yi’s face and said with an honest expression, “You’re not allowed to say that you’re not handsome. Xu Yi, you have to remember that since I like you, you are the most handsome. Perhaps in the eyes of many girls, Vincent is very handsome, but now I can see that he is very weak and he doesn’t even have ten thousandth of your charm.”
Seeing the honest look on Still’s face, Xu Yi felt a bit emotional. He kissed Still’s hand and said in a soft voice, “Thank you for your praise. Being able to receive your love, I feel very blessed.”
Still revealed a bright as a flower smile before taking Xu Yi’s hand and heading in the direction of the Lampuri Royal Academy.
