Li Yundong ran out together with Zhou Qin. They happened to see Zi Yuan leaving through the opposite door. Li Yundong smiled and said, "Ha. What a coincidence. Are you going out 'somewhere' too?"
Zhou Qin was struggling to hold back her laughter. When she heard Li Yundong's words, she couldn't help but chuckle again.
Li Yundong turned his head and glared at Zhou Qin, pretending to be angry. "Be serious. We are going to leave the palace."
Zhou Qin chuckled and said, “And where is it you want to go? Out here or somewhere?"
Li Yundong also couldn't help laughing. "I'll go where I want to go."
As soon as they stopped at the door, Su Chan ran out shouting for someone. She threw herself at Li Yundong's back and wrapped herself around him like an octopus, grabbing and biting. "You are disgusting! How dare you play tricks on me!"
Li Yundong turned his head to Su Chan and laughed. "Ha, are you done with your 'somewhere'?"
Su Chan made a face at Li Yundong. "You're so annoying, you stinky man!"
The three onlookers laughed. Zi Yuan looked at them in confusion and asked questioningly, "What are you saying? What somewhere? Is anybody going anywhere?"
Both Su Chan and Zhou Qin pointed to Li Yundong at the same time. "He wants to go 'somewhere'!"
Li Yundong quickly waved his hand and said with a smile, "No, no, I'm not going to go 'somewhere'. We should go together."
Zhou Qin and Su Chan spat at the same time and scolded him with a smile, "You loathsome man!"
Li Yundong laughed and waved his hand: "Good Lord, I get to take three wonderful beauties out together today!"
Su Chan bit Li Yundong's ear and giggled. "Who's going with you? You're so shameless!"
Zhou Qin also smiled. "You can go out by yourself. I would never go 'somewhere' with a man."
At this time, Zi Yuan seemed to have understood something. She looked at Li Yundong helplessly, then shook her head and sighed. "Alas, you are our leader. How can you be so playful? You're like a child. "
Li Yundong flashed a cheeky smile at Zi Yuan. "Exalted Buddha, I will go out with these two beautiful ladies. Why don’t you come with us?"
Seeing Li Yundong's funny face, Zi Yuan couldn't help laughing. "I'm going to our store. Where are you all going?"
Li Yundong was overjoyed and said with a smile, "Perfect. We are also going to the store! Let's go together."
The three of them chatted and laughed as they left. In the room, Cao Yi, Zhuang Yating and Liu Yuehong stood at the door and looked at their backs. Cao Yi put her hands together and said, "Ever since the leader came to our Fox Zen School, our lives have been filled with laughter. I wish that every day could be like this. It is really our great blessing."
Liu Yuehong also nodded and sighed. "That's right. When I heard the laughter of the younger generation, I also felt my heart lighten. It would be even better if Zhangsun Hong were still here."
Zhuang Yating went quiet at this. She looked at the departing figures of Li Yundong and the others and said softly, "Let's go. We also need to intensify our cultivation."
Li Yundong, Su Chan, Zi Yuan, and Zhou Qin arrived at Pedestrian Street and went straight to the store. Before they entered, they saw several men holding a design drawing and pointing at the shop.
Li Yundong asked curiously, "Who are they?"
Zhou Qin smiled. "Oh, they must be the decorators I contacted."
Li Yundong's surprised only grew. "Decorators? They are holding some design drawing, right?"
"Of course," Zhou Qin said.
Li Yundong was both surprised and pleased. "What kind of decoration company could be so great that can whip up design drawings so fast? Are these the Ultraman of the decoration industry?"
Zhou Qin looked at Zi Yuan and said admiringly, "This is a design made by Zi Yuan after working overtime. If you want to thank someone, thank her."
Li Yundong was shocked. He turned his head and looked at Zi Yuan in awe. "Is there anything you can't do in this world?"
Zi Yuan said indifferently, "It's no big deal. "
Li Yundong smiled and said, "If your words were heard by other interior designers, I'm afraid they would be depressed to death. Let's go and have a look at the work of the impeccable Zi Yuan."
They walked to the door of the store, where a man in a jacket saw Zhou Qin. He came up and greeted her warmly, saying, "Miss Zhou, we meet again."
Zhou Qin walked up to him with a smile. "Mr. Han, are you going to lead the team personally? You're so responsible."
Li Yundong saw that Mr. Han was a middle-aged man of about forty years old. He had a little beard on his face and his appearance was nothing special, but his eyes were bright and clear. As Li Yundong looked at him, he also glanced back at Li Yundong quickly. Obviously, he was an experienced businessman with very acute senses.
Mr. Han glanced at Li Yundong. He saw that Li Yundong had a gentle smile on his face but also looked dignified. He was shocked and thought to himself, "Where did he come from? I have seen countless people, but never have I seen such an extraordinary young man!"
Mr. Han's gaze followed Li Yundong and landed on Zi Yuan. With just one glance, his mind exploded. He felt as if the woman standing in front of him was a fairy who had descended to the mortal world. Zi Yuan was so beautiful that Mr. Han couldn't even bring himself to take a second look at her.
Mr. Han quickly moved his eyes away from Zi Yuan and looked at Su Chan. After this glance, he could feel that his heart was pounding. He could not move his eyes anymore. He yelled in his heart: "How can there be such charming and beautiful women in this world?"
Li Yundong could see Mr.Han staring at Su Chan in a daze, as if his wits were failing him. The two young people behind Mr. Han were looking directly at Su Chan and it almost seemed like they wanted to swallow her right up.
Li Yundong felt secretly displeased. He coughed and let Han Yongchang come back to his senses. Han Yongchang then laughed awkwardly, feeling embarrassed, and said in a strong Beijing accent, "Oh, I'm sorry for getting so distracted."
Han Yongchang took the initiative to shake hands with Li Yundong. "May I have your name?"
Li Yundong smiled and reached out his hand to hold Han Yongchang's. "My name is Li Yundong."
Han Yongchang said with a warm smile, "Ah, it's my pleasure to meet you." But in his heart, he thought to himself, "Li Yundong? I haven't heard of this name or of his family in Tiannan. Is he from another city?"
Li Yundong was famous in the Cultivation World now, but in the secular world, his name held no special meaning.
Li Yundong was well aware of this, and he did not care about Han Yongchang's hypocrisy at all. He just smiled and said, "Mr.Han, on behalf of all the staff of Disanxian, I would like to thank you."
Hearing this, Han Yongchang asked curiously, "Disanxian? Isn't that a dish made with potato, green pepper and eggplant? Mr. Li, is this place going to be a restaurant?"
Li Yundong laughed and said, "No, 'Disanxian' means three immortals."
Han Yongchang firmly believed that Li Yundong was a playboy with a great background. He had already made up his mind to flatter him, so he joked, "Disanxian? What a good name! Look at the three beauties around you. No doubt they are three fairies who have descended to earth, hm?"
When Li Yundong heard this, he was delighted. He looked at Su Chan, Zi Yuan, and Zhou Qin. The three of them were different in appearance, but they were all uniquely gorgeous. It was a coincidence for them to have selected the name "Disanxian", which meant three fairies.
Li Yundong nodded and said with a smile, "Yes, I hadn't been expecting the Disanxian to actually have such an interesting meaning."
When Su Chan heard someone praising her, saying she was as beautiful as a fairy, she was so happy that she gripped Li Yundong's arm and acted like a fangirl. Zi Yuan was smiling faintly, but Zhou Qin thought in her heart, "Zi Yuan is a real fairy. Although Su Chan is a fox spirit, she can become immortal in the future with the help of Li Yundong. But what about me? When can I become a real immortal?"
Li Yundong saw the sadness flashing through Zhou Qin's eyes. He kept his thoughts in his heart, not saying a word.
Han Yongchang still wanted to flatter Li Yundong, so he said to Zhou Qin with a smile, "Miss Zhou, was this design made by Mr. Li? It's amazing. I have been working in this industry for so many years, and I have never before seen such a simple yet elegant design."
Zhou Qin came back to herself and said with a smile, "Mr. Han, I'm afraid you're mistaken."
Li Yundong also laughed and said, "Mr.Han, that design was done by Zi Yuan."
As Li Yundong spoke, he pulled Zi Yuan over to his side. Zi Yuan gave Han Yongchang a slight nod but did not say anything.
Though Han Yongchang had flattered the wrong person, he was not embarrassed. He quickly reacted and said, "Oh, so it was made by Miss Zi Yuan! How amazing. If you become a designer, I'm afraid we'll all be out of a job."
His flattery made Li Yundong and the others laugh, and even Zi Yuan smiled slightly.
"Don't hurry to flatter us," Li Yundong said with a smile. "Let's talk about the price first. I won't give you more money no matter how much you flatter me. I am a real poor man."
Han Yongchang also smiled. "Mr. Li, even the beauties around you are not on the level of ordinary people. I don't believe you are a poor man. Aren't you mocking me in a roundabout way by saying something like that?"
Li Yundong asked curiously, "Why would you say that I'm mocking you?"
Han Yongchang laughed. "Think about it. If there were an ordinary person, could any of the fairies around you be with him instead? Only an extraordinary person like you could keep these three beauties company and take control of the 'Disanxian'!" As he said this, he gave Li Yundong a thumbs up.
Li Yundong said jovially, "You flatter me. Be careful with your words. If my head gets too big, I'll take my business elsewhere."
Li Yongdong's words showed his acquiescence to the decoration cooperation with Han Yongchang, who was overjoyed. "People like you must have brilliant careers and long lives. You will a cut above the rest no matter what era you're in. "
Li Yundong smiled. "Come on, don't flatter me. I'm really a poor man. Anyway, I'll name a price. Whether you accept it or not, I will not force you. It's useless to try and butter me up. If I really had so much money, would I be opening such a small store?"
Han Yongchang laughed and said sincerely, "Mr. Li, you are really a reliable person. I see that you have a great attitude and I believe that you will certainly make a difference in the future. As the saying goes, one shouldn't bully a poor young man! I'm not a money-hungry man. Today, I promise you, no matter how much money you offer, I will take the job! "
Li Yundong was pleased to hear that. "Well, in that case, I will make friends with you! However, you can't cheat me with your work."
Hearing that, Li Yundong and Han Yongchang both laughed.
Seeing these two people chatting happily, Zhou Qin smiled and said to Han Yongchang, "Mr. Han, let's talk inside and see how the design will play out."
Li Yundong smiled at Zhou Qin. "Please take Zi Yuan and Mr. Han inside to take a look. I need to exchange some words with Su Chan."
When the others entered the store, Li Yundong gently stroked Su Chan's hair and said "The man just said, 'one shouldn't bully a poor young man.' It made me think of the days when we wandered homeless through the streets. Since I met you, I really have not given you a comfortable life. There were always all kinds of things happening to make you worry about me. Sometimes I can't help but wonder: if our store does not make money, what should we do? If I don't have enough money, how can I keep a fairy like you on the ground?"
Su Chan held Li Yundong's arm lovingly and looked at him with her soft eyes. "Li, I'm already very satisfied! We came together when we were at our poorest. I'm sure that we'll get even better in the future! Even if we're still poor, we can beg for food, and I won't care about it. I believe that you will be a great and mighty hero who won't have to worry about money one day. But... at that time, will you still remember me, a little fox spirit?"
Hearing this, Li Yundong sighed forlornly in his heart. He suddenly remembered his conversation with the little fox at the rent house and could not help saying, "As long as you don't leave me, I won't abandon you. Heaven and earth can testify to that on my behalf!"
"Why did you say that? It's kind of weird!" Although Su Chan was angry on the surface, she felt a sweetness in her heart. She held Li Yundong's hand tightly, as if she never wanted to let go. The two of them clung to each other as if they were going to merge into a single person.
They stood on the street and looked at each other. For a moment, they seemed to be lost in their own world, as if there was no one but them for miles around.
While they were looking at each other deeply, an extremely harsh voice suddenly cut through their reverie. "You two haven't broken up yet?"
When Li Yundong heard this, he immediately became angry. "Excuse me!? Who are you? How dare you curse at me and Su Chan!"
He turned his head and saw a fat middle-aged woman standing not far away and watching them. When Li Yundong saw this woman, he immediately laughed out of anger.
This woman was the landlady who had driven them out of the rental house and into the streets before!
