“You….” Yu Ru pointed at Jin Lan with a finger trembling in anger. She was so angry it could cause harm to her heart and might cause her to cough out blood. How could there be such a shameless man in this world, she thought.
Bo Li was latching onto Jin Lan clothes, trying to climb up, but was kicked away and began to fake death on the ground.
Jiao Yue and Chu Yun were off to the side smiling, anticipating what the reaction of this Princess Wen Ya would be after learning this gentlemen’s true identity.
“What is it?” Jin Lan raised her eyebrow and looked Yu Ru. Then, she swept her eyes over to see Yue Zhuang and another graceful lady entered the shop and commented, “Princess Wen Ya, if you are a real lady you should follow and learn it from the woman over there. Such purity and elegance all matched with a beauty. Like a horse matching its saddle, please do not hope for the impossible.”
Yu Ru followed Jin Lan’s gaze to check, before quickly turning back in anger, just to see a ridiculing smile on JIn Lan’s face. Opening her eyes wide, Yu Ru exclaimed “IT IS YOU…..!! HUA JIN LAN!”
Jin Lan ignored her and went up and leaned on the counter, and with an impish smile called out, “Hey! Lady!”
Yue Zhuang immediately recognized her, and a faint pinkish colour appeared on her face. He lowered her head and whispered to the lady beside him before saying, “Master Hua, this is my older sister, Yue Fu Yao.”
After listening to Yue Zhuang’s whisper, Yue Fu looked up at Jin Lan. It seems that Yue Fu already knew all about Jin Lan’s deeds and work, however from her eyes there wasn’t any hint of disdain or despise. On the contrary, Yue Fu was very humble as she nodded her head at Jin Lan.
Yue Fu was shocked as well, she initially thought that the girl, from the rumours that shook Glory City, would be domineering and arrogant. Yet the person standing before her, wearing a blue male outfit, his eyes delicate and clear, and every movement, even though a little unruly, displayed a tint of elegance within. With his outward appearance of being magnanimous, Jin Lan trusted her judgement in evaluating his character, realizing that truly, one must not believe rumours so blindly.
Yu Ru, unable to withhold her fury, raised her hand and dash towards Jin Lan and scolded, “You shameless woman!!!”
Bo Li, who was lying on the floor, suddenly jumped up and dashed in front of her. It turned its neck and made a sharp, shrewd shriek. The sound was intense and ear- piercing, causing Yu Ru to be so frightened that she pulled herself back, her face in a panicked state.
Jin Lan rewarded Bo Li with a smile, allowing it to climb on her shoulder, secretly thinking, even raising a beast is better than raising a younger sister.
Yue Fu set her eyes on the now celebrating Bo Li, her eyes slowly showing a hint of amazement and asked, “I dare ask Master Hua, is this the Tailless Spirit Beast?”
“Tailless Spirit Beast?” Jin Lan turned her head while playing with Bo Li, “What is that?”
