Feng Na had no choice but to force a smile when she saw that she could not avoid him. "So, Han Lin, why are you here?"
Han Lin replied with a smile, "I'm here for an interview! Why are you here?"
Feng Na pointed at Li Yundong. "I'm here to attend my classmate's..."
Before she could finish her sentence, Han Lin interrupted her, "I asked you to have an interview with me, but you refused. It turns out that your classmate is more important than me!"
After that, Han Lin raised his chin as if he had only just noticed Li Yundong, and shouted at him arrogantly, "Hey, who are you?"
Li Yundong frowned inwardly. He was about to speak when Han Lin interrupted him, saying impatiently, "Whatever, you needn't say. I won't remember even if you tell me."
After that, he turned his head and said to Feng Na, "Hey, I'll buy you dinner tomorrow night. You have to come!"
Feng Na's eyebrows furrowed and she was about to say something when she saw Han Lin turn around and leave before she could get a word in. He shouted back at her as he walked away, "That's settled then. See you tomorrow night!"
Feng Na was so angry that she muttered in a low voice, "I never accepted your offer! I don't want to eat with a narcissist like you!"
Li Yundong smiled and said, "Who is he? Your boyfriend?
Feng Na rolled her eyes at Li Yundong and said, "Bah, are you trying to make me angry? If he were my boyfriend, I'd jump off a bridge. He is the son of the chief operator of our TV station and has a mighty fine opinion of himself. He always thinks that he is superior and talks in a condescending way. Ugh, he is worthless!"
Since the incident with He Shao, Li Yundong had developed some immunity to the rich second-generation kids and the officiallings. He smiled and did not say anything.
Feng Na landed a punch on Li Yundong's shoulder, then glared at him and said angrily, "Hey, I'll ask you again. Are you still looking to hire staff for your store?"
Li Yundong smiled and was about to speak, but Feng Na added forcefully, "Don't say no!"
Li Yundong smiled bitterly. "You know, you really should get together with Han Lin. You two make a perfect match. Why won't you let people talk?"
Cheng Cheng, who was next to him, giggled and added, "Nana, you're so lucky that you don't know. Didn't you see the hostess glare at you when the chief operator's son was talking to you just now? Seems like she really hates you!"
Feng Na pinched her angrily. "That's enough! If you like him, you can go after him yourself! I'm fed up with this guy, yet you're still making fun of me! Why don't you go with the boss of your company, huh?"
The two started bickering noisily. After the TV station's car had driven away, another Audi A6 with the city government's license plate started honking loudly behind the crowd. The people who were watching the scene automatically stepped aside to make way for this car.
Cheng Cheng looked at the slow-moving car and asked curiously, "That's strange. Aren't vehicles prohibited on the pedestrian street?"
Ruan Hongling sneered and said, "Look at the license plate! This car belongs to someone from the municipal government. This license plate shows that it is the mayor's car!"
Su Chan was a little confused. She blinked and asked dumbly, "The municipal government's car? The mayor's car? What is he doing here!?"
While they were talking, the car stopped. As soon as Zhao Yougen saw the car, he immediately walked over to it with a smile, opened the door and shouted, "Mayor Zeng, we are deeply honored by your presence."
A middle-aged, big-bellied man in Western clothing and leather shoes got out of the car. He took Zhao Yougen's hand and said with a smile, "President Zhao is in a leisurely and carefree mood today. Tell me, why do you want to open such a teahouse?"
Zhao Yougen laughed and said, "It's just for fun! Let's go inside, Mayor Zeng!"
As he spoke, Han Lin stood in front of him, nodding and bowing with a smirk. This arrogant and rude young man was acting as humble as a grandson. He said loudly, "Mayor Zeng, President Zhao, look here!"
The young hostess with him was also very clever. She immediately shoved the microphone in the mayor's face and began asking a lot of irrelevant questions.
Mayor Zeng seemed enthusiastic, holding Zhao Yougen's hand and mumbling into the microphone, answering the string of irrelevant questions fired at him.
Su Chan looked curiously at Mayor Zeng. She felt like she knew the definition of every word that the mayor was saying, yet she couldn't understand what he meant when he used the words together.
Su Chan turned to Li Yundong and asked in confusion, "Yundong, what the heck is this person talking about?"
Li Yunyang smiled and said, "Nothing. It's normal that you wouldn't understand. Officials like him are not used to speaking human language."
Ruan Hongling, who was standing to one side, laughed and patted Li Yundong on the shoulder cheerily. "That's right. You're finally speaking human language."
At this time, the surrounding little foxes and Li Yundong's classmates all began laughing.
Li Yundong glared at Ruan Hongling angrily and said, "We should be uniting as one right now. Are you stupid? Why cause internal strife at a time like this!"
While they were quarreling, Zhao Yougen and the others surrounded Mayor Zeng and walked into the store. After a while, when the mayor's car had left, another car rolled up, from which a fat, middle-aged man got out.
President Zhao came out, surprised. "Yo, Director Fang," he called, "nice to meet you! We are greatly honored by your presence. Please come in!"
Then, the cars behind followed one after another. For a time, this pedestrian street, which had few people on weekdays, was congested with heavy traffic.
The onlookers around were all stunned. At this time, even a fool could have seen that the newcomers were all officials coming to support the new teahouse's owner.
"What is this store?"
"I don't know, but I guess the boss of it is very powerful. Otherwise, how could he have so many officials dropping by?"
"That's right! Since this guy has invited so many officials, he must not be an ordinary person, so why is he running such a small teahouse here?"
"Hey, who knows how a rich person thinks?"
"Hey, do you know who these officials are?"
"No idea. Who cares? All anyone cares about is their position. What does it matter who they are?"
While the crowd was discussing this, another eye-catching BMW X6 suddenly pulled up.
When Cheng Cheng saw the silver-gray BMW X6 driving over slowly, her eyes lit up. She stuttered, "That's an SUV, my favorite!"
Feng Na rolled her eyes at Cheng Cheng, "Of course. As long as it has four wheels, it is your favorite!"
Cheng Cheng couldn't help but roll her eyes at Feng Na and say, "Can't I think about it if I can't afford it?" Then she sighed and said, "Ah, I wonder if I'll ever get a car like that..."
Feng Na laughed. "It's easily done. Just find a rich man to look after you!"
Cheng Cheng suddenly turned her head, and there was a flash of adoration in her eyes. She looked at Li Yundong in a daze and said, "Boss Li, please take me as your lover!"
Li Yundong knew that Cheng Cheng was joking with him. He coughed dryly and pointed at Su Chan, Zi Yuan, Zhou Qin and the many other foxes from the Fox Zen School behind him, saying solemnly, "Please queue up and wait for your number to be called!"
Immediately, Feng Na and Cheng Cheng burst out laughing. Zhou Qin's face turned slightly red as she silently looked at Li Yundong with hidden bitterness. Zi Yuan also glanced at Li Yundong unnaturally, seeming unhappy about his joke.
Cheng Cheng patted Li Yundong's shoulder, gave him a thumbs-up, and said, "D*mn killjoys! Do you have to think about who you want to sleep with every night?"
Having said this, she burst out laughing again.
Her words were a little too direct. Li Yundong glanced at Su Chan awkwardly, gave a hollow laugh, and did not answer her.
Su Chan felt that the opening ceremony was supposed to be a happy event, but it had been interrupted by Zhao Yougen. Now, hearing Cheng Cheng's words, Su Chan felt even more frustrated. She couldn't help pouting and whispered, "Yundong, let's go back."
Li Yundong nodded. "Alright. Let's go in, everyone!"
As he spoke, other students suddenly pointed to the BMW and exclaimed, "Look! That's Wang Li! She often appears on TV!"
The students all recognized her and exclaimed in surprise, "It sure is! She is so beautiful in person!"
"Oh my God, this teahouse invited a TV star? Isn't that wild?"
"Is this an opening ceremony or some kind of grand show?"
"Idiot, is there any difference between the two?"
Li Yundong saw an enchantingly dressed woman getting out of the car. The woman waved at the crowd around her, who all seemed to recognize her, and greeted them enthusiastically.
Since the people recognized Wang Li, they had suddenly gotten excited. Su Chan asked curiously, "Yundong, who is she? She seems very famous."
Li Yundong smiled and said, "Wang Li is a TV star. Recently, she acted in quite a popular movie. Don't you often watch soap operas? Why don't you recognize her?"
Su Chan puffed out her cheeks and said, "A person can be pretty different in reality compared to how they are on a screen! They are basically two people! How could I recognize her?"
Li Yundong suddenly laughed. "Yes, you speak the truth!"
Su Chan didn't understand what he meant. She asked foolishly, "What? What did I say? What's the truth?"
Li Yundong laughed. He touched Su Chan's hair and said, "Nevermind. It doesn't matter. Let's go in so we don't have to see these nasty people anymore."
He was about to turn around and go in, but the crowd around him started buzzing once again. The guests who had entered the teahouse previously all came out together, surrounding Mayor Zeng. Then, some of the beauties in Qipao carried out the plaque, pulled the red rope tied with safflower, and another beauty carried out a plate with a pair of scissors on it. Obviously, the intention was for Mayor Zeng and Zhao Yougen to cut the ribbons together.
Zhao Yougen was standing side by side with Mayor Zeng. He glanced at Li Yundong proudly, his eyes full of provocation and disdain. After greeting Mayor Zeng, he went straight over to Li Yundong, tore off his disguise, and said proudly, "Hum, boy, look carefully. This is what a real man can do! What's the use of being handsome? Power is the standard by which a man should be measured!"
Having said his piece, he left directly.
Zhao Yougen's words made all the people around Li Yundong angry. Li Yundong narrowed his eyes into a line and maintained a neutral expression. No one could tell whether he was happy or angry.
Ruan Hongling sneered and whispered to Zi Yuan, "I'll turn those scissors into flintsticks!"
Zi Yuan was shocked. She quickly stopped Ruan Hongling and muttered hurriedly in a low voice, "Are you crazy? In front of so many people? How do you know that there are no people from other sects in this crowd? Not to mention, the mayor is here! It doesn't matter if you offend him, but do you know how many powerful people are behind him?"
Ruan Hongling snorted and stamped one of her feet resentfully. "Do you want to just watch this b*stard show off in front of us then?"
While she had been talking, Zhao Yougen and Mayor Zeng had finished cutting the ribbons. Suddenly, eight beauties began to toss flowers from upstairs, making the scene reminiscent of a wedding ceremony.
Zhao Yougen and Mayor Zeng removed the red cloth from the plaque again. When everyone looked closely, they saw four big, glittering words: "Tea Shop of Zhao".
Cheng Cheng asked softly, "Who is Zhao?"
Li Yundong laughed. "Don't you know? It's Zhao of The Orphan of Zhao."
After that, everyone laughed and secretly admired the fact that Li Yundong could still make jokes in such a situation. That kind of attitude was not easily found amongst ordinary people.
At this moment, the beauties in the opposite building start working together to hang the plaque on the second floor, stringing it with red silk. The guests clustered around Zhao Yougen, and Mayor Zeng entered the teahouse.
As soon as they disappeared inside, the crowd lost their enthusiasm. They unconsciously looked at Li Yundong and others, and one of them saw that there were many beautiful women around Li Yundong, so he shouted, "Hey, what is the plaque you are holding? Show it!"
As soon as the man spoke, the other members of the crowd followed suit. "Yes, don't keep it from us!"
Li Yundong frowned. He looked coldly at the noisy teahouse on the opposite side of the street. Feng Na and the others beside him were also feeling frustrated.
However, Su Chan took Li Yundong's hand and whispered, "Yundong, it's all right. I believe that our Disanxian will last longer and be more popular than that stupid Tea Shop of Zhao!"
Zi Yuan also smiled and said, "Good point! Li Yundong, although his teahouse is very busy now, is arrogant and will definitely have an accident in the future! I'm sure it won't be long before he and his business are in trouble!"
Li Yundong smiled and said, "You don't have to comfort me. I'm fine. I invited you here today, but I haven't been treating you well. I'll punish myself with three glasses of wine when we have dinner later!"
Everyone said sympathetically, "Don't say that. Li Yundong, you're too polite!"
Li Yundong laughed brightly. "Ah, well, don't wait around. Let's all go in."
The crowd burst out laughing and went inside. Zhou Qin, who was at the door, glanced at her watch anxiously. She took out her cell phone from her pocket. Just as she was about to open it, she suddenly saw a Lincoln Limousine driving over from a distance.
When Zhou Qin saw the license plate of the car, she immediately turned to Li Yundong and yelled, "Master, come and see this!"
