Lady Gu Is Too Weak To Fend For Herself - Chapter 689
Chapter 689: Never Heard Of Tang Ruge
When the shop owner saw that the Luo family had arrived, his eyes were filled with shock. Previously, he thought that Pei Lingquan was just casually saying it. He did not believe that Pei Lingquan could actually invite the Luo family.
The Luo family of Xuan Island had been living in seclusion for many years. Pei Lingquan must not only know the Luo family but have a good relationship with them. Otherwise, why would they rush over from Xuan Island?
“The Luo family was invited by Mr. Pei?”
“Of course. Among the people present, only Mr. Pei and Miss Tang have the ability. Didn’t Miss Tang say before that the Tang and Luo families are on good terms? Of course, it’s because of the two of them.”
Tang Ruge’s bookish face was filled with joy. Her voice trembled slightly. “Is the Luo family really here?”
“Sister, the Luo family must be here for you! They’ve been living in seclusion on Xuan Island for so many years, but this is the first time they’ve appeared in such a high-profile manner. Only you can make them take you so seriously!”
Tang Lingyun was extremely excited, then she glared at Qiao Xi arrogantly. “You’re still not admitting defeat at a time like this? The Luo family, the top family out of the four great porcelain families, is here, yet you’re still hoping to win?
“I only asked you to leave just now because I wanted to save you some dignity. Now that Mr. Pei and the Luo family are here, you’ll lose very badly and your dignity will be crushed!”
Tang Ruge did not stop Tang Lingyun from mocking Qiao Xi. Instead, she leaned forward and asked, “Does anyone know who it is from the Luo family?”
“That expert from the Luo family won’t appear so easily. He probably just casually sent a disciple to represent him!”
“That’s right! The Luo family’s direct descendants naturally wouldn’t appear so easily.”
As soon as they finished talking, the car door slowly opened. A tall and cold-looking young man got out of the car. The bodyguards around him lowered their heads and bowed respectfully.
The entire venue was silent. Everyone could not help but gasp. They never expected that the person who came to be the young master of the Luo family!
Pei Lingquan was so excited that his palms were trembling. He staggered a few steps forward. “Young Master… Young Master… Luo Qing?”
Ordinary people might not know who Luo Qing was, but the shop owner and Tang Ruge naturally knew him. Luo Qing was the legendary person who could create hollowed-out jade rings. They never expected the young master of the Luo family to come in person.
Tang Ruge, who had always been calm and composed, could not help but blush as her body trembled slightly. Luo Qing’s appearance could be said to be showing the Tang family respect. This time, she won beautifully.
However, who invited Luo Qing? Was it Mr. Pei? How did Luo Qing rush over so quickly?
“Miss Tang, you’re really awesome! You actually managed to invite Young Master Luo!”
Hearing everyone’s praise, Tang Ruge controlled the excitement in her heart and forced herself to calm down. She absolutely could not be rude in front of Luo Qing. Then, she revealed a standard smile and walked forward. She said respectfully, “Young Master Luo, thank you—”
Before she could finish, Luo Qing glanced at her coldly. A chill ran down her spine as he asked coldly, “Who are you?”
These three words were like a thunderclap that struck everyone’s hearts. It was as if the words had slapped Tang Ruge hard, causing the smile on her face to stiffen.
The shop was eerily quiet and filled with an awkward atmosphere. Everyone was confused. Weren’t the Tang and Luo families on good terms? Why doesn’t Young Master Luo know Miss Tang? Could it be that Young Master Luo wasn’t here for Miss Tang?
Tang Ruge was, after all, a daughter of a noble family. She immediately calmed down and still had a faint smile on her face. She said generously, “Young Master Luo, you might not have seen me before. I’m the daughter of the Tang family, Tang Ruge. I even went to the Luo family to visit with my father before, but unfortunately, I didn’t get to meet you then.”
Tang Ruge was indeed from a noble family. Her words were very eloquent. She explained that the two families were on good terms, but it was just a coincidence that she had never met Luo Qing. Not only did she save herself from trouble, but she also did not embarrass Luo Qing.
Tang Ruge felt inexplicably uneasy. Perhaps it was just because she was a little nervous seeing the young master of the Luo family for the first time. As long as he could win this bet for her, everything would be fine. So what if he did not know her?
“Tang Ruge?” Luo Qing repeated her name, then said calmly, “I’ve never heard of you.”
Never heard of her? She was the daughter of the Tang family! No matter what, the Tang family was one of the four major families in the porcelain field. How could he not know her?
At this moment, the smile on Tang Ruge’s face could no longer be maintained. She bit her lip and looked aggrieved.
