Lady Gu Is Too Weak To Fend For Herself - Chapter 690
Chapter 690: Lost Her Reputation
At this moment, Pei Lingquan said obsequiously, “Young Master Luo, do you still remember me?”
Luo Qing glanced at him with his deep eyes. After thinking for a moment, he replied indifferently, “Yes.”
Yes! It was enough that Young Master Luo knew that the two of them had met each other before. Pei Lingquan was so excited that his face turned red. “Young Master Luo, I’m Pei Lingquan! When you came out a few years ago, you gave me a few pointers. I can be considered a student of yours!”
Luo Qing nodded expressionlessly.
Pei Lingquan suppressed the ecstasy in his heart and pointed at Tang Ruge. “Ruge is my student. Please don’t take offense.”
Only then did everyone know that Luo Qing was here for Pei Lingquan. After all, he was his disciple. Luo Qing had to show him some respect.
Tang Lingyun pointed at Qiao Xi and shouted, “Did you hear that?! Young Master Luo is here for Mr. Pei!”
Everyone looked at Qiao Xi and Gu Yao, only to see Qiao Xi raise her eyebrows. “Are you so sure that Mr. Luo is here for him?”
Seeing that she was unwilling to admit defeat, Tang Lingyun immediately retorted, “Could it be that he’s here for you, then?! Don’t be shameless! Since you agreed to the bet, you have to admit defeat. Now that Young Master Luo is here, why aren’t you admitting defeat? Are you trying to go back on your word?”
Luo Qing, who had been silent for a long time, suddenly curled his lips and looked at Qiao Xi. “Admit defeat? You mean she lost?”
Tang Ruge, who was already determined to win, could not help but tremble when she heard Luo Qing’s words. She suddenly had a bad feeling. Why did Luo Qing ask this?
Could it be that Luo Qing was doing this for…
Impossible! She had never seen this woman in the capital. She was definitely not from the capital. Apart from her, who else could invite the Luo family? How could this nouveau riche who reeked of money invite Luo Qing?!
Tang Ruge took a deep breath and suppressed the uneasiness in her heart. Unexpectedly, Luo Qing said indifferently, “She won.”
She won? Who was he talking about?
Tang Lingyun also sensed that the atmosphere was not good, but she could not accept it. She asked in disbelief, “Young Master Luo, who did you say won? My sister? You came for my sister, so naturally, my sister won. There’s no doubt about that.”
“Whoever I help will be the winner, right?” Luo Qing asked expressionlessly. He frowned slightly and was already a little impatient.
Tang Lingyun hurriedly said, “Of course. You’re the top porcelain master in the world. Only you can create hollowed-out jade rings. If you help my sister, she’ll win this bet!”
A trace of a smile flashed past Luo Qing’s calm eyes, making his cold face look a little warmer. “Looks like I’m the key to deciding the outcome.”
Tang Ruge clenched her fists, her palms sweating. She was so nervous that her entire body was trembling.
The next second—
“I don’t think I’ve ever said that I’m here to help Miss Tang. You think too much.” Luo Qing’s eyes were filled with smiles, but his smile was one of mockery.
Tang Ruge widened her eyes abruptly. Her face instantly turned pale, and her mind buzzed.
She was thinking too much? Did that mean that Luo Qing was not here to help her?
Tang Ruge seemed to have understood something and subconsciously looked at Qiao Xi. His eyes were filled with resentment and viciousness. Her mask of a noble daughter instantly shattered, revealing her true appearance.
Then, Luo Qing slowly walked to Qiao Xi’s side. In the silence, he called out gently, “Sixth Sister.”
Qiao Xi raised her eyes and looked at Luo Qing gently. Her brothers usually called her Little Six, but now, he was deliberately calling her Sixth Sister for the sake of letting everyone know that she was Luo Qing’s younger sister.
Luo Qing raised his hand and helped her smooth the hair on her forehead. Their intimate actions shocked everyone present. Then, he smiled and said, “You didn’t even tell me, your second brother, that you were bullied.”
At this moment, everyone finally understood that Luo Qing was here for her, not Pei Lingquan or Tang Ruge.
Tang Ruge’s body went soft as she looked at this scene in disbelief. She had actually lost to a nouveau riche? She had rushed to Li City from the capital for the sake of this porcelain vase. Now, she had lost all her dignity and even failed to get the vase.
“She’s actually Young Master Luo’s younger sister?”
“In that case, she’s also from the Luo family? I didn’t expect her to have this identity. No wonder she agreed to this bet. It turns out that she already knew she would definitely win!”
“This young miss is a member of the Luo family, but she keeps a low profile. Even when she was mocked, she didn’t reveal her identity. Pei Lingquan and Tang Ruge said that they were on good terms with the Luo family, but it turns out they don’t even know the daughter of the family!”
