He pointed at Qin Yiyi and wanted to laugh out loud to express his schadenfreude.
But in the end…
Fang Jianwei glared at her hatefully and opened his mouth angrily.
“You’re still in the mood to laugh. Hurry up and think of a way to cover this up.”
Qin Yiyi raised her eyebrows and spoke in a surprised voice, “Why should I cover it up?”
She didn’t do anything shameful. Besides, it was Qin Jiatong who should be covered up, okay?
Fang Jianwei felt that he was simply eating salt and worrying about nothing!
Look at this girl! She was still smiling.
This was her own matter!
She wasn’t even worried about a smelly girl. Why was he helping her by worrying about it for her?
If he were to meddle in her affairs in the future or if he worred about her again…
H-he would be a puppy!
Glaring at Qin Yiyi, Fang Jianwei turned around and left.
But after taking a few steps…
He took a deep breath, raised his hand and patted Qin Yiyi a few times.
“Rumors kill people. People’s words are terrible. People can turn gold into poop. Just laugh.”
“Sooner or later, you will cry!”
With that, he turned around and left in large strides.
Behind him, Qin Yiyi’s eyes curved and she called out in amusement.
“Uncle, take care. Come over for dinner when you have time.”
Fang Jianwei didn’t even turn his head back. After walking far away, he thought about it again and again. In the end, he made a few calls.
Fang ‘puppy’ Jianwei: Woof Woof, Woof!
After returning to his room, Qin Yiyi didn’t take this matter to heart.
She directly threw it to the back of his mind.
She should eat, drink and relax.
In fact, she didn’t even have the intention of telling Grandma Fang, Grandpa Fang, and the others about this matter.
It wasn’t until three days later that Qin Yiyi was stopped at the entrance of the community downstairs by a person dressed in a Daoist robe who looked like a celestial being from afar.
“Benefactor, please wait.”
Qin Yiyi tilted her head and looked at the other party, her eyes curved.
“I don’t know what’s going on. If you need alms, I don’t have any money.”
The other party looked at Qin Yiyi carefully and suddenly said, “Miss, do you know that you have committed a crime against someone? Now you have been invaded by evil spirits, and you have the shadow of death over you.”
“My fate is in my hands, not the heavens.”
Qin Yiyi lightly nodded at the other party twice, turned around and left.
The priest behind her seemed to want to catch up to her and say something, but Qin Yiyi directly turned into a corridor at the side.
Not far from where Qin Yiyi lived.
A car stopped by the roadside.
Qin Jiatong watched as the priest walked over and opened the car door, her small face dark.
“What’s wrong with you? Didn’t I tell you to nail this matter to death? Why did you let her leave with just a few words?”
The Taoist priest looked at Qin Jiatong with a hint of hesitation in his eyes. In the end, he made up his mind.
“Almsgiver Qin, I’ll return your previous deposit to you. I won’t be able to help you with this matter…”
Qin Jiatong sneered and looked at the other party, “Since you’ve taken my money, you have to do things for me. Otherwise, I’ll go and tell those people that you’re swindling people and it’s all a scam. Let’s see how you’ll be able to stay in places like Shanghai in the future! Even if you stayed, you wouldn’t be able to earn money. Everyone will be cursing at you!”
The Taoist priest, who had the demeanor of a celestial being, “…”
Qin Jiatong scared the other party for a while and then lowered her voice.
“How about this? As long as you help me do this well, I’ll give you twice as much money later, how about that?”
“This isn’t a matter of money…”
The Taoist priest shook his head and looked at Qin Jiatong, who still wanted to refuse.
However, Qin Jiatong directly sneered. “You can make a decision now. Choose to take the money or not have any money to earn in the future!”
The priest was speechless.
In the end, he could only continue to cooperate with her under Qin Jiatong’s threat.
Until the car drove away.
The priest, who was standing in the same spot, shook his head and sighed lightly without much sincerity.
It could be seen that this was God’s will.
On the way here, he was still thinking about how to help this Miss Qin make up for it.
After all, he was the one who changed his mind…
When he saw Qin Jiatong again, the Daoist priest especially gave her a second look.
The disaster on her face gave him an idea in an instant, but unfortunately, this benefactor Qin didn’t seem to take him seriously at all…
She even threatened him.
Since that was the case..
He shrugged and turned around to leave as well!
It was fated!
On this day, Qin Yiyi skipped school to join Old Gu and the others in a charity event.
It was a kind of donation.
Old Gu and the others all donated some things.
With their position, the things they took out on this occasion wouldn’t be too high, but it couldn’t be too low either.
So almost as soon as it was taken out, it was greatly exaggerated by the host.
And the event venue also had other charity shows and other forms of simultaneous events.
But all the money that they received was donated.
Old Master Gu didn’t let Qin Yiyi donate anything. How much money could a little girl have?
Besides, even if she really had money, she still had to keep it.
In the future, there would be many places where the little girl would need money.
Second Young Master Gu, who was drinking tea and being invisible the entire time, snorted twice.
His grandfather had really underestimated this girl.
With this girl’s ability, would she be short of money?!
Qin Yiyi: I am very, very short!
Old Master Gu wanted to help Qin Yiyi donate something. No matter how unwilling Qin Yiyi was to spend money, it wouldn’t be good for him to ask his elders to help him out.
Moreover, a few reporters not far away would glance at her from time to time.
She guessed in her heart that they should be here specifically for her!
After thinking for a moment, she handed a jade pendant that she carried with her to a staff member at the side.
“Send this jade to the charity sale.”
“Okay, please wait a moment.”
The jade pendant that Qin Yiyi took out was carved by herself.
It didn’t look good, and the color of the jade wasn’t good either.
Moreover, the carving was extremely crude. One look and it was obvious that it wasn’t the work of a master.
She didn’t care about these things.
The things that were taken out would be left to fate. It didn’t matter how much they sold for.
Well, most importantly, the money it made was not hers anyway. She did not care!
Qin Yiyi really did not care. She said that it was bought from a little girl and the price was around 10,000 yuan.
Old Master Gu was still muttering, “I think that jade of yours is something you played with yourself. It’s fine if you can sell it at this price. Next time, tell Grandpa what you want. I’ll get Gu’er to send it to you.”
Gu Yulin’s soul flew into the sky.
When he heard his grandfather mention his name, he let out a cry of surprise. His face was filled with confusion.
“Grandpa, you’re looking for me?”
Old Master Gu raised his hand and patted him. “Scram to the side.” This rascal was too useless. He couldn’t even coax a little girl!
If this rascal was a little more capable, she might have really become a member of the Gu family!
What a shame!
Gu Yulin, who was despised by his grandfather, didn’t take it seriously. He even smiled foolishly and poured a cup of tea for Old Gu and Qin Yiyi.
Then, he turned around and seemed to be immersed in his own thoughts again.
Qin Yiyi glanced at him and suddenly raised her eyebrows. She then frowned and looked at him carefully.
She turned around and smiled sweetly at Old Master Gu.
“I’m afraid I have to congratulate Grandpa Gu.”
“What’s there to congratulate?”
He was already so old, so nothing good would happen to him.
Right now, what he wanted the most was for everything to be peaceful and for the people around him to be safe and healthy…
“Grandpa Gu will know in a while.”
Right now, Gu’Er’s Red Luan Star had just started to move and was about to manifest.
If she were to suddenly reveal it…
It might even ruin her plans.
It was just that she didn’t know which girl had moved this silly husky’s heart.
Perhaps she could find an opportunity to ask Gu’er?
Yes, if he didn’t say it, she would torture him to extract a confession!
The last event was a gathering.
Although it was called a gathering, in fact, no one could eat anything. It was just to create a disguised networking spot for everyone.
It was just to let some people make friends.
“Grandpa Gu, you can’t eat dessert anymore.”
Qin Yiyi reached out and took the small cake in Grandpa Gu’s hand, stuffing it into her mouth.
He took a deep breath and glared at Qin Yiyi. “I just want to eat a few mouthfuls…”
“That won’t do.”
Qin Yiyi’s voice was serious. “Your blood sugar has been rising recently. You have to strictly control the intake of high sugar items like desserts.”
At this moment, there was a burst of noise outside the banquet hall.
At first, no one noticed.
But the noise outside continued to grow louder and louder…
Qin Yiyi and Grandpa Gu were sitting a little closer to the inside.
Logically speaking, they shouldn’t be able to hear anything.
But who asked Qin Yiyi to have sensitive hearing?
Although she did hear some words, her eyes didn’t even move.
“Grandpa Gu, eat this.”
“Good, good. Grandpa finally has someone who’s filial to him. He doesn’t seem like some idiot who foolishly eats by himself.”
“I don’t even know if my grandpa is eating well or not.”
The idiot Yulin was very speechless.
“Grandpa, I asked you just now. It was you who told me to go as far away as possible.”
He only stayed away from him after hearing his old man’s words.
How could he be blamed again?!
It was simply… favoritism!
Old Master Gu rolled his eyes at him and was about to say something when Gu Yulin suddenly cursed.
Old Master Gu was so angry that he almost fell on his back. He raised his hand and smacked his head.
“Little bastard, who were you scolding just now? Hmm, tell me again.”
“Grandpa, it hurts, it hurts, it hurts.”
Gu Yulin rubbed his head a few times before looking up at the entrance of the banquet hall not far away.
“Grandpa, I was talking about over there. Look, it’s actually a priest.”
He muttered as he looked, “Could it be that this righteous donation was so attractive that even the priest was attracted here?”
“I just don’t know if there will be a monk here later…”
Old Master Gu raised his hand and patted him again. “What’s with that mouth of yours? Stop talking and eat more!”
Gu Yu Lin replied with an ‘oh’ and really lowered his head to continue eating.
He had only eaten two mouthfuls, but in the end, he was slapped again by his own old man.
Gu Yulin, whose forehead was about to be slapped swollen,”…”
“Grandpa, what’s wrong with you again?”
“What do you mean, what’s the matter? Can’t you learn from others and pay attention to the things happening outside?”
Look, look, look.
Which one of the people present was like this stinky brat, lowering his head and eating?
If there really was something going on, what could an old man like him count on?!
The more he looked at it, the more he despised him!
Qin Yiyi glanced at them and knew in her heart.
That priest was here to look for her!
Or rather, he was here to look for trouble with her!
She lowered her eyes without batting an eyelid, drank a mouthful of fruit juice, and took the opportunity to eat a piece of cake.
It was quite delicious.
She had to find out which chef made it and see if she could buy some to eat.
Moreover, there were two types of cakes here that didn’t seem sweet at all.
They were glutinous.
It was just nice to let Grandpa and Grandma have a taste..
Just as she was thinking, a girl’s delicate voice sounded, “Priest, why are you standing in front of my sister and not leaving? By the way, priest, this is my sister, the eldest daughter of our Qin family.”
The voice was very familiar.
It was full of white lotus wind.
She did not need to raise her head to know who this person was without even thinking.
As for the Taoist priest she was talking about…
Qin Yiyi curled her lips into a smile and didn’t take it seriously.
“This female benefactor, can you raise your head to give this poor Taoist a view?”
Qin Yiyi ignored him and continued to eat her own food.
There were so many girls, wives, and mistresses, who knew who he was talking about?
She was just a little girl, and she was a coward!
Qin Jiatong: If you were a coward, then there would be no one in the world who would be brave!
“Sister, the Taoist priest is talking to you.”
Qin Jiatong’s heart was filled with pride. Look, so what if she stood by Old Master Gu’s side?
Wouldn’t her reputation be ruined by her own scheme?
After today, the entire upper class would probably not put Qin Yiyi in their eyes, right?
She had specially investigated the Gu family.
Old Master Gu actually believed in feng shui…
Qin Yiyi finished the last piece of cake and took a napkin to wipe her mouth.
Only then did she look indifferently at the two people in front of her.
“Are you talking to me?”
She glanced at Qin Jiatong and ignored her. Her gaze fell on the tall figure of the Daoist priest.
“What does the Daoist priest want to say to me?”
“So it’s actually the female benefactor. We meet again.”
The other party was very surprised as he saluted with his hands folded in front of his chest. Then, with a sonorous and righteous voice, he spoke, “This humble Daoist, Daoist San Mu, greets this female benefactor.”
It was actually Daoist San Mu!
Instantly, someone in the crowd began to discuss in a low voice.
Even Old Master Gu couldn’t help but glance at the Daoist in front of him, who looked like a Daoist who walked on the path of immortality!
This was a famous Daoist master!
Many people couldn’t invite him even if they wanted to.
Now, he suddenly appeared and stood in front of the eldest daughter of the Qin family?
He felt the change of aura in the crowd.
The one who was the happiest and proudest was naturally Qin Jiatong.
As long as everyone believed in this San Mu, her plan would succeed.
In the future…
Qin Yiyi ignored what those people were thinking. She tilted her head and looked at the other party, shaking her head.
“Sorry, I’ve never heard of him.”
San Mu did not mind. He put his palms together and saluted.
“This penniless priest has a sentence that I know I shouldn’t say, but…”
“Since you know you shouldn’t say it, then don’t say it.”
The one who spoke was Gu Yu Lin.
He didn’t know this Daoist in front of him, just like Qin Yiyi.
But this person seemed to be targeting Yi Yi. Bullying Yi Yi meant he was definitely bullying him!
It wouldn’t be too much to beat him to death!
He snorted coldly, “Then you’re an adult. You actually don’t know what to say or what not to say. Looking at your age, you even have a beard. Why don’t you even know whether you should say it or not? You’re really going back to your old self. Aiya..” Gu Yulin’s voice was full of teasing. “Is it really as the saying goes, you’re already so old that you’re living in a dog’s stomach?!”
