Chapter 459 – Crown Prince Arrives
Charlie shook his head and said, "No, acting might not deceive those people. It might even draw away those who are determined to join my side. The gains might not justify the losses. What we need to do right now is to be united, and be low-key as well. Just like how Little Hai handles his strength. No matter who needs any help, we must help." The group nodded.
Charlie turned to look at the sky and said, "Alright, let's head out, those who ought to come should have arrived."
Just as Charlie set out, footsteps were suddenly heard. The footsteps were urgent, but they weren't heavy.
Charlie's complexion couldn't help but sink, he already told the servant to not allow anyone disturb them. Moreover, the servants outside were his trusted aides. He was very familiar with the footsteps of those people, Charlie knew that the one who came was surely not one of his people
Seeing Charlie's expression, Zhao Hai knew that there was something wrong. He immediately stood up and took out his Magic Staff. When the group saw Zhao Hai's action as well as Charlie's complexion, they understood and also got ready to move.
Then, a voice came from outside, "Third Brother, Third Brother, you in? The guests have arrived, why did you suddenly disappear? Come out quickly."
Hearing this sound, Charlie forced a smile and said to the group, "Well, no need to be anxious. It's just my Ninth sister."
When Charlie said this, John couldn't help but ask, "Ninth sister? Is your highness talking about Princess Lizzy?" Charlie nodded, then he smiled bitterly as he answered his sister, "Come in, sister."
As soon as they heard Charlie, Zhao Hai and the others relaxed. Then the doors was swung open as the hem princess' skirt appeared.
After he saw the princess, Zhao Hai's first idea was that her posture was very good. This Princess Lizzy's figure was fantastic, she was about 1.7m in height, but her poise can only be described as fiery. Zhao Hai can confidently say that Princess Lizzy has the best figure of a woman that he's ever seen.
At the sight of Lizzy's face, Zhao Hai couldn't help but blink. She had big eyes, a thin and exquisite nose. Not too think, but still very sexy lips. She had wheat colored skin, smooth as though it has been oiled. Light brown and shallow eyebrows decorated her green eyes.
However, Zhao Hai staring wasn't because of these, it was because this Princess Lizzy looked a bit like a person Zhao Hai wasn't familiar with, but can still recognize.
Keeley Hazell, a British model an actress. A woman who was both sexy and elegant, one of the world's most recognizable women. Even Angelina wasn't able to enter the top 100 sexiest women in the world, goes to show how gorgeous Keeley was.
Charlie's younger sister was actually called Lizzy, Ji Li, Lizzy, good. Although there was some difference in the name, her appearance wasn't any different. This surprised him.
Zhao Hai more and more thought about how Ark Continent is related to Earth. Otherwise, how did the same beautiful women on Earth appear here?
Lizzy didn't expect the room to have these much people, she stared. Zhao Hai and the others immediately bowed and said, "We've seen Princess Lizzy."
Lizzy recovered, she immediately exhibited her princess-ly manners as she bends down slightly and then said, "At ease."
Then the group stood straight. Charlie looked at Lizzy and said, "Younger Sister, why didn't you wait for me in the hall? What made you come here?"
Lizzy looked at Zhao Hai and the others' eyes and then pretended to have a desolate expression as she said, "The guests have already arrived, but you still haven't shown yourself. So I came to take a look."
Charlie nodded and then said, "Alright, we’ll be heading out. Little Hai, let's go out and see." Charlie calling Zhao Hai didn't evoke any envy. First, Zhao Hai's had overwhelming strength among those present. If they had Zhao Hai's strength, then Charlie would appeal to them as well but unfortunately they did not. Second, Zhao Hai had a lot of good things on hand. Some of these goods might be useless to Charlie, but for those middle to low ranked nobles, they were a once-in-lifetime road to huge profit. They need something from Zhao Hai, so how could they be offended by this kind of thing. It can be said that in Charlie's inner circle, aside from the Third Prince, Zhao Hai held the highest status.
Hearing Charlie specially addressing Zhao Hai, Lizzy couldn't help but look at him. Zhao Hai's name wasn't new to Lizzy, she has also heard about what happened back at Purcell Duchy. She also knew about Megan's engagement. It can be said that she and Megan were called the Twin Flowers of the Imperial Capital. Now, one of the flowers has gotten herself a man.
Also, Lizzy was clear, whether it be Charlie or Megan, those two had eyes as tall as their status, ordinary people simply wouldn't enter their sights. But for this ordinary looking, average guy to receive the appreciation of the two meant that he wasn't a simple person.
Lizzy didn't stare at Zhao Hai for too long. She was a Princess, she has seen a lot of magnificent scenes. To her, she only held curiosity towards Zhao Hai. 
Charlie led the group to leave the room. At this time, Laura and the others were already waiting for them outside. Charlie took this chance to introduce Lizzy to Laura and others. Then Lizzy went to join Megan as Laura offered a gift.
Charlie didn't manage them as he led Zhao Hai and the others to walk towards the front courtyard. They proceeded forward until they reached a very big hall. This was mainly used as a place to receive various guests, but with a few changes here and there, it has been transformed into a grand hall.
As soon as Charlie and the others arrived outside the door, a servant in front immediately announced his arrival, "Prince Charlie has arrived!" Along with the echo of the voice, Charlie entered the hall.
Inside the hall were more than a hundred guests, fortunately this hall was big enough. If not, this hall might not have survived to this day.
The servants decorated the hall with water fountains that looked like a butterfly exhibition. In the middle of the hall were long rows of tables containing a variety of foods. There were also clean plates and utensils present, those who wanted to eat can just easily go and pick out something to eat.
There were also chairs on the sides of the hall for those who were too tired of standing. In the innermost area of the hall, an orchestra was continually playing gentle music.
When the people inside the hall saw Charlie came in, they immediately gave him a bow. Charlie also returned to courtesy as he greeted everyone inside. Zhao Hai wasn't far away from him, he had the Space record each name and appearance of the people inside.
At this time, Laura and the others were dragged along by Lizzy towards the other ladies. The other women were talking with each other about, clothes, jewelry, as well as some gossip. Laura used to talk to people, so she was quite familiar with this scenario and naturally knew how to approach it.
Meg was also quite experienced. She grew up in the Buda Clan since childhood. In the past, the Clan also held frequent banquets. Therefore, Meg also knew how to deal with these women. There was nothing to say about Megan, she lived her whole life along these types of ladies, how could she not possibly know how to interact with them?
Zhao Hai paid attention to Charlie's banquet. Charlie invited the noblemen but it seems like he didn't do the same for the other princes. The only person from the Royal Clan aside from Charlie was Lizzy. From this point, one could see that Charlie's relationship with his brothers aren't that great.
At this time, the sound of a servant can be heard from the front door, "His Highness Crown Prince, Young Master Terry Robert, and Young Master Jason Crook has arrived."
When these three names were called out, the room seem to come into a halt. Almost everyone here knew that the relationship between the Crown Prince and the Third Prince wasn't very good. Because of the succession battle, it was impossible for Charlie to invite the Crown Prince in this banquet. This made things very strange.
But what made it even more strange was the fact that Terry and Jason also came along with the Crown Prince. Terry was the Robert Family's successor. The Robert Family wasn't less than the Calci Family in terms of status. This was something everybody knew.
Jason Crook wasn't a simple character either. The Crook Family was very famous in the continent, although they aren't on the same status as the Calci and Robert Families, they still had a huge influence inside Rosen Empire.
For these two people to suddenly appear along with the Crown Prince to Charlie's banquet, what did this mean? Does this mean that the Robert Family and the Crook Family has thrown their lot with the Crown Prince? The servant's announcement of their arrival was still ringing on the minds of those present.
Zhao Hai slowly headed at Charlie's side. Charlie was staring blankly right now. Zhao Hai arrived at Charlie's side and whispered, "Your Highness."
Charlie recovered, he turned to Zhao Hai and saw him nodding towards the door. Charlie immediately understood Zhao Hai, he gave Zhao Hai a grateful nod as he restored his calm state and walked towards the hall's entrance with a face full of smiles.
Zhao Hai didn't follow Charlie and just stood there. It took a short while before Charlie arrived at the front door to see three people walking in. In the front of the trio was a 40-year old middle aged man. He looked very much like Charlie, but he had a small beard that was handled very neatly. This made him look very imposing. One couldn't help but admire how this man carried himself.
Behind him was Terry. There was another person beside him, he was very handsome and wore a decent Noble's clothing. His figure wan't very tall but he carried himself with prestige. Although he couldn't steal spotlight away from the Crown Prince, people still took notice of him.( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) Zhao Hai, you know what to do Okay, author, I see you. Not for long Ah, Team Rocket
Chapter 460 – Foul-mouthed Jason
When Charlie was near the three newcomers, he laughed then gave a salute, "Big Brother, welcome. I didn't expect brother to come to this one's small banquet, so I didn't bother sending an invite. But for Big Brother to actually come here, it's a great honor."
The Crown Prince looked at Charlie and faintly smiled, "I also heard that Younger Brother has held a banquet, so I decided to stop by. On the way, I met Terry and Jason, so I decided to take them with me as well. I hope I didn't trouble Third Brother for bringing additional guests."
Charlie smiled and said, "No problem, Brother visiting has given me quite an honor. So how can Big Brother possibly bring me trouble? Big Brother, Terry, Jason, come in, don't be polite."
Terry and Jason gave Charlie a small salute before heading towards the hall. The other people inside also gave a salute to the Crown Prince, naturally, Zhao Hai wasn't an exception.
But Zhao Hai was surprised when the Crown Prince headed towards him after their eyes met. The Crown Prince smiled faintly and said, "Mister Zhao Hai?"
Zhao Hai smiled and said, "I didn't think that the Crown Prince would know of my name. This is really surprising."
The Crown Prince laughed and said, "Mister is too modest. There isn't anyone in the continent who doesn't know how fierce mister is. May I ask Mister to pay a visit to my mansion?"
Zhao Hai smiled, "If I have time, then I will certainly come visit."
The Crown Prince smiled and said, "Then I'll be waiting for mister. By the way, I heard that mister has a lot of businesses in hand, is there a chance for the two of us to cooperate?"
Zhao Hai faintly smiled at the question, "I certainly have some businesses on hand, but for cooperation? This is something I cannot say. Currently, I'm in a partnership with the Third Highness. Moreover, we've already signed a long-term contract regarding our cooperation. If His Highness the Crown Prince wants to cooperate, then I'm afraid you will need to discuss it with the Third Highness."
The Crown Prince placed a small play on his words. The reason he asked Zhao Hai about the possibility of cooperation was to assess whether there was a chance for Zhao Hai to change sides.
But Zhao Hai's reply was very clear, he was now on Charlie's side, it was impossible for the other camps to recruit him at this point. The conversation between the two was clearly heard by the people present in the hall. All of them were smart people, it was impossible for them to not understand the exchange. When the Crown Prince heard Zhao Hai's response, his expression couldn't help but drop, but he still forced a smile and said, "That is regrettable." Then he turned around and left.
As soon as he heard the Crown Prince's regretful voice, Charlie's face changed, it was now quite red. Naturally, Zhao Hai's answer gave him this much happiness.
Zhao Hai also knew that he had already lost the opportunity to get closer with the Crown Prince. However, he didn't find it regrettable. One couldn't always be half-hearted, or else they won't be getting good results.
At this time, Terry and Jason arrived at Zhao Hai's location. Terry then smiled to Zhao Hai, "Little Hai, I didn't expect you to come. If I knew, I would have arrived earlier."
When Zhao Hai heard how he was called, he couldn't help but stare. The age gap between the two of them aren't so large to merit such calling. Terry was obviously doing this to make their relationship closer.
However, Zhao Hai didn't relax because of this, he became even more vigilant instead. From what he heard from Megan, Terry was a sinister person. Moreover, he also knew that Terry was his love rival. For Terry to be warmer to him meant that he was already planning about how to deal with Zhao Hai.
Although he was thinking about this, he didn't show it on his face. Zhao Hai just smiled and said, "Big Brother Terry is too polite. Brother should know about my relationship with His Highness Third Prince. So how can I not attend such occasion?"
Terry wants to bring their relationship closer, while Zhao Hai attempted to back away politely. He also addresses Terry that way in order to throw the other party into confusion. Zhao Hai didn't lower his guard against Terry.
When Terry heard Zhao Hai, he looked delighted as he smiled and said, "I knew that you have a very good relationship with the Third Prince. But since God's Grace Day is approaching, I expected you to be helping inside Dark Soldier Fort, so I didn't think that you would come."
Zhao Hai replied with a smile, "Megan told me to come, so how could I not? Hehe, Megan is also quite close with the Ninth Princess."
Then Zhao Hai turned his head to Jason and said, "Is this Young Master Jason from the Crook Family? Zhao Hai gives his greetings. I've heard about the young master's name, I didn't think that I would be meeting you today."
Jason looked at Zhao Hai and smiled faintly, "I've also heard about mister Zhao Hai's name, but I cannot help but be disappointed by what I have seen today."
Zhao Hai stared, he didn't think that Jason would be this impolite. One must know that in a Noble gathering, one would do his/her best to stay modest. It doesn't matter if the two of you were life and death enemies, if you meet in a gathering such as this, you better show your full smile and act like how a noble should. But Jason was different, this was far from Zhao Hai's expectations.
Zhao Hai couldn't help but look at Terry. At this moment, Terry's face expressed a wronged expression. This made Zhao Hai curious, since Terry and Jason came together. Aren't they supposed to be in a group? Why did it seem like Terry wasn't expecting Jason to utter such words? Didn't they plan this encounter ahead of time?
Thoughts churned inside his brain, but Zhao Hai's face didn't show any of it. He just smiled at Jason and said, "I'm really apologetic for disappointing Young Master Jason."
Jason slyly looked at Zhao Hai's smiling face, he didn't seem to be fazed. This gave Jason an incentive to push things further. He commended Zhao Hai to keep his grace and honor after such words. While he looked impressed, Jason's mouth opened, "You're really unworthy of Miss Megan. Miss Megan is one of the Twin Flowers of the Imperial Capital. It seems quite a waste for her to be marrying a very ordinary looking person."
After Terry heard this, he turned to Jason and said, "Jason, you should hold back on your words."
Zhao Hai actually laughed and said, "Young Master Jason is right. I also think that marrying Megan is such a loss. But alas, I actually wanted to be more attractive, but my father didn't make me handsome. This is such a disaster, hai."
Jason and Terry stared at Zhao Hai before they both laughed, Jason patted Zhao Hai's shoulder and said, "Brother, I must say, I like the way you speak. Hahaha. Good, you're someone worth befriending."
Seeing that Jason didn't seem to be faking, Zhao Hai couldn't help but laugh as well, "You really have low standards for making friends. Are you looking for a not so handsome guy? I must say, you've found the right one."
The three of them laughed. Jason grasped Zhao Hai's shoulder and said, "I didn't think that you would actually read my thoughts, you're quite good."
Zhao Hai smiled, "Even if I guessed it right, I think there's no reason for you to hold my shoulder this hard. I'm a mage, I might suffer injuries."
The conversation between the two made it seem like they were long time friends. It also seemed like Terry was pushed aside. It made Terry look a bit ridiculous. But he still smiled, but it was a stiff smile.
A person like Terry has always been heavily favored since he was a child. He was already quite used to being in the spotlight, no matter where he was. Even if he stood along with the Crown Prince, he didn't allow himself to be overshadowed. Because he was a successor to a millenium-old family, his status wasn't any lower than a Prince.
Zhao Hai and Jason chatting away made him feel like an outsider. He felt like the two of them had already forgotten about him, this made him feel unwell.
At this time, a servant passed to their side. On the tray that the servant was holding were two glasses of wine. Jason immediately took the two glasses and gave Zhao Hai one of them. Then he raised his glass to Zhao Hai and said, "I really thought that this would be a very boring party. But I didn't expect to meet an interesting person such as you. Come, come, let's drink, after this, we will become friends."
Zhao Hai didn't expect Jason to actually be so refreshing, whether his gesture was true or not, Zhao Hai still returned Jason's toast and said, "Right, let's drink this glass, from today on, we're both friends, cheers!"
Jason raised his glass and bumped it with Zhao Hai's, "Good, cheers!" Then without any courtesy, the both of them downed the wine in one go.
This scene was very visible to the other guests. When they saw the two, they couldn't help but stare. There were a lot present that knew about Jason. He wasn't very popular within the circles of nobility because of his frank attitude. He never gave anybody face, because of this, there weren't a lot of nobles who wanted to mingle with him.
But with Jason's status, average people wouldn't dare to not give him any face. Therefore, in common banquets and parties, the hosts would still deliver an invitation to the Crook Family. However, even if Jason came, there were only a few people who came to talk to him. People were afraid to be embarrassed by Jason's words.
Just as Jason was about to speak to Zhao Hai, the people nearby couldn't help but watch in anticipation. They wanted to see Zhao Hai's embarrassed expression. However, they didn't expect Zhao Hai to actually carry on with ridiculing himself. This move of embarrassing himself was out of their expectations.
Those who weren't nearby and didn't hear them speak still kept an eye out. This was because they also wanted to see how Jason manages to embarrass Zhao Hai. Even if they couldn't hear anything, they knew from Terry's expression that Jason didn't say anything nice.
However, what happened next made them confused. They didn't hear what Zhao Hai said to make the three people laugh and even make Jason look amused at Zhao Hai. This was too unexpected. They were very curious to the point that they were on the verge of approaching the two just to ask what Zhao Hai said. But unfortunately, there was no way for them to do so.
Chapter 461 – What Does He Plan To Do?
Laura and the others were also paying attention to Zhao Hai. When Megan saw Jason come in along with the Crown Prince, she immediately told Laura and the others about him. Because of this, Laura was looking at Zhao Hai's direction, they were afraid that Jason would embarrass Zhao Hai.
However, what happened next was not what they expected. When they saw Zhao Hai and Jason speaking cheerfully, Laura and Megan couldn't help but look at each other before faintly smiling. They didn't say anything, but they knew that the other party was fully confident in Zhao Hai.
At this time, Lizzy arrived by Megan and said, "Megan, did you know what Zhao Hai said? Why did that bastard Jason chat with him? You already know how he doesn't give anyone face."
Megan looked at Lizzy and couldn't help but smile. Jason was truly an odd person, someone who didn't care about other people's face. This seemed to annoy Lizzy, which led to her calling Jason a bastard.
Megan shook her head and said, "I also don't know. However, from what I've learned about Jason, he surely didn't utter any words of praise. On the other hand, I'm quite sure that Big Brother Hai didn't care. Haha."
Lizzy looked at Megan, confused, then she said, "Care? In such situation, why wouldn't he care about being embarrassed? Isn't he courageous and upright?"
Megan smiled and said, "What's strange about that? Will refraining from being courageous and upright make the emperor mad? As a person, Jason isn't bad, he just says things that nobody wants to hear. Think about it, what he always says is the most glaring flaw of a person. At this point, there are very few people who would like to listen to the truth. But unfortunately for them, Brother Hai wants to mingle with people who were quite frank. I think that because of this, Jason got along very well with Brother Hai."
Lizzy looked strangely at Megan, then she went forward and whispered, "Megan, are you really happy with Zhao Hai? I couldn't see anything special about him. Although he isn't ugly, he isn't handsome either, he's very ordinary. There are a lot better guys in the world. You're also sharing your man along with other women, are you really fine?"
Megan smiled and said, "What are you asking that? Brother Hai is very exceptional, outsiders simply cannot understand it. Let's stop talking about this, let's go eat something, I'm quite hungry."
Charlie was similarly paying attention to Zhao Hai. He really cared about Zhao Hai so it was natural for him to give him more attention. Charlie also knew about Jason, so he was worried about Zhao Hai's reaction.
Aside from Charlie, the Crown Prince was keeping an eye as well. Actually, he was telling the truth before, he really met Jason along the way. Terry and him were together, and when they saw Jason, they decided to take him along as well.
The Crown Prince wanted Charlie to misunderstand Jason. If Charlie starts offending the Crook Family for this matter, the Crown Prince would move in and help the family. Then he could place it as the Crooks owing him a favor.
But now it seems that his plans were destroyed by Zhao Hai. The Crown Prince was clear that Jason's mouth wasn't something that a normal person can take. He didn't think that Zhao Hai would only say a few words to deal with Jason. This completely destroyed his plan.
Thinking about this, the Crown Prince's eyes couldn't help but show a cold light. He was now somewhat envious of Charlie. Why would such an outstanding person arrive at Charlie's hands. If Zhao Hai becomes the Crown Prince's subordinate, then he would surely have 90% chance of inheriting the throne.
But it seems that Zhao Hai cannot be his subordinate anymore. So the only way forward was to exterminate him. He must be eliminated. If Zhao Hai survives, then the threat that he could present would be too great.
Seeing Zhao Hai and Jason's expressions, Charlie couldn't help but be surprised. Jason was difficult to get along with. But Zhao Hai actually did it, this was something very unexpected.
Zhao Hai and Jason chatted and drank together, they were enjoying themselves too much that they completely disregarded Terry. However, Terry still stuck with Zhao Hai, he was like honey sticking on skin.
Zhao Hai couldn't understand what Terry was trying to do, but he knew that the more Terry does this, the more he showed that he had something in his heart. Zhao Hai was now even more certain that Terry wanted to deal with him, probably in this banquet.
Zhao Hai couldn't help but frown while thinking about this. He really wants to know how Terry plans to deal with him. After all, this is Charlie's mansion, if he wanted to do something to Zhao Hai, it would be very difficult.
However, Zhao Hai was disappointed, the banquet was already halfway, but there wasn't any movement. At this moment, there were men and women on the middle of the hall, dancing.
Zhao Hai couldn't dance, so he just stayed at the sides with a glass of wine in his hand. Jason sat beside him, as well as Terry.
Looking at the dancing men and women, Jason couldn't help but look disdainfully as he said to Zhao Hai, "Little Hai, I heard that you have three fiancees. Moreover, people said that they are quite the beauties. Is Megan, one of the two Imperial Flowers, the most attractive one?"
Zhao Hai looked at Jason. To be honest, Zhao Hai really enjoyed chatting with the guy. Jason didn't act like a noble, he was more like Zhao Hai's friends back on earth; those types who always give you bad influence. This made Zhao Hai feel interested in him.
Upon hearing Jason's question, Zhao Hai smiled and said, "What? You're jealous? I tell you, don't rely on your height, nor your face too much. When it comes to female interaction, you are very far from me."
Jason scowled at Zhao Hai, "You're too proud. I don't believe that with my character and appearance, I would be worse than you."
Zhao Hai smiled and said, "What's the matter? Now that you can't beat me with quality, you battle me in quantity? In that case, you have me beat. However, other nobles already know about you. And since were talking about character, look at that guy over there. If he heard you just now, he would be laughing so hard that his golden teeth would fall off." Then he pointed to an old noble on the other side of the hall.
In the Ark Continent, having gold teeth was starting to get popular. The man that Zhao Hai pointed to was intently watching the noble women dancing on the hall with an open mouth. Saliva was flowing out, enough amount for 100 people to watch in their entire lives. He looked very dreadful.
Jason was drinking when Zhao Hai pointed towards the old noble. When he saw the old man, he couldn't help but spew out the liquid in his mouth. He choked again and again while Zhao Hai laughed at the side.
Terry looked at Jason and Zhao Hai's scene and couldn't help but feel disdain. At the same time, he couldn't understand what Megan found in Zhao Hai. To Terry, there was nothing good about this man.
After quite some time, Jason recovered, he looked at Zhao Hai and said, "This fellow, he was just quite an ordinary man before, how can he be…"
Zhao Hai looked at him and said, "Secretly perverted, right?"
When he heard what Zhao Hai said, Jason's eyes went bright as he said, "Right, right, secretly perverted, hahaha, you really know your stuff. I guess you're quite knowledgeable about yourself."
Zhao Hai scowled and said, "Get lost, and take your smelly mouth along with you, I can't bear hearing anything from it anymore. Right, while waiting for God's Grace Day, do you have any plans? Will you join the daily banquets in the capital? What do you plan to do? How about going to the sea with me while enjoying the view."
Jason didn't think that Zhao Hai would have such a proposal. He stared, at the same time, he felt strange. He only knew Zhao Hai for a bit less than two hours, but it felt like he knew him for dozens of years. Jason has never met anyone this rude to him. This made him really surprised.
But he immediately replied, "Good, then I'll go with you to the sea. I'll take this chance to see how you do your business so that I can overthrow you in the future."
Zhao Hai frowned at him and said, "Go on, if you have the ability then I'd be happy. Alright, when it's time to go, I'll have someone inform you. At that time, you must not decline."
Jason actually knit his brows and he said, "That may be hard to say, you know my status, I'm not as free as you."
Zhao Hai smiled and said, "Alright, but if you have time, do tell me, I'll take you out. If you don't have any, then forget it. I want to find someone to play with, you're quite fortunate that I haven't found one yet."
Jason also knew Zhao Hai's situation, he just smiled bitterly and didn’t say anything. At this moment, Zhao Hai noticed the Crown Prince and Charlie heading towards the backyard, probably to discuss something.
Zhao Hai wrinkled his brows, but he didn't say anything. Instead, he ordered Cai'er in his mind to pay attention to their situation.
Zhao Hai also paid attention to Laura and the others, who were still with Lizzy. They were all beautiful women, so they were very noticeable inside the hall. Many men passed by, asking them to dance, only to be disappointed when they got refused.
After a while, a servant came by their side and spoke a few words to Lizzy. Lizzy stood up and said a few words to Laura and the others before leaving.
Zhao Hai wasn't interested in Lizzy, he already had three fiance's, he was already satisfied. He also thought that Lizzy's status wasn't something that he could handle.
At this moment, Zhao Hai was really hating himself for not knowing how to dance. Otherwise, he would have invited Laura and the others. Unfortunately, the past Adam wasn't very good at dancing. Because of this, nobody asked him to dance during parties. And adding on to the fact that he didn't like to practice dancing, this made dancing even more foreign to him.
There was nothing else to say about Zhao Hai. Back on Earth, he was just a nerd. At the same time, there was almost nobody who practiced traditional dance. If he went up to people while jumping around, he would certainly get strange looks.
Zhao Hai couldn't help but regretfully sigh. He thought that he was a bit unfair to Laura and the others. Girls generally want to attend the dances in a banquet. They liked showing off their graceful side. But it was a pity that Zhao Hai didn't know how to dance, so they can only sit on the sides.
Jason noticed Zhao Hai's appearance. He smiled faintly and said, "What's the matter? You want to dance with your fiance's? Then why don't you go over and invite them?"
Zhao Hai looked at him with and blank look, "You don't need to mind my business. If I don’t want to dance, then I won't dance. I quit dancing a long time ago."
Jason looked at Zhao Hai with a shocked face, "You won't dance? Or is it that you can't dance? Isn't that the most basic lesson that is taught to all nobles? Why can't you do it?"
Zhao Hai snorted and said, "The one who my family asked to teach me was an old man. I like pretty girls at that time, and wasn't interested in the old man. Because of that, I had the old man chased away. From then on, nobody dared to teach me how to dance."
When Jason heard Zhao Hai's response, he couldn't help but laugh and said, "Brother, you're very good. I didn't think of that, it's a great idea. Chasing the teacher away, I'll try that next time."
Zhao Hai rolled his eyes and shifted his attention towards the men and women who were dancing in the middle. This Jason really brings you bad influence.
At this time, a servant arrived at Zhao Hai's side and said, "Mister, His Highness is waiting in the backyard. He has sent for you."
Zhao Hai nodded and said to Jason, "I'll have to go." Then he turned to Terry and said, "Brother Terry, I'll be leaving for a moment."
Terry smiled and said, "Go, go, we will wait for you here." Maybe it was just in Zhao Hai's mind, but Terry actually sounded overly enthusiastic. This confused Zhao Hai, at the same time, he also raised his guards up.
Zhao Hai walked towards the backyard along with the servant. The servant took two turns and three more before they arrived at a small room. After Zhao Hai sat down, the servant poured him a cup of tea before saying, "Please wait here, mister. His Majesty will first escort the Crown Prince away before he will come here."
Zhao Hai stared, he looked at the servant and said, "The Crown Prince is leaving?"
The servant nodded and said, "He is, since his Highness the Crown Prince is leaving, His Highness the Third Prince is going to escort him. I'll have to ask mister to wait a bit."
Zhao Hai deeply looked at the servant's eyes. After serving him tea, the servant immediately withdrew from the room. The reason why Zhao Hai stared at the servant was because the servant was lying. Cai'er just told him that Charlie was still chatting with the Crown Prince. This meant that the Crown Prince was still not leaving.
Why did he lie? What does he want to do? Zhao Hai was full of questions in his heart. If it wasn't for the servant being familiar with Charlie's mansion, Zhao Hai would've thought that the man was the Crown Prince's subordinate. But seeing how the servant led him as well as his familiarity with serving the mansion's tea, Zhao Hai was even more confused.
At this time, Cai'er suddenly told Zhao Hai that the servant didn't walk away. Instead, he just hid in the corner of the courtyard, making sure that nobody would notice him.
Zhao Hai now understood why the servant didn't close the door. This was in order to see his situation. Zhao Hai was now even more skeptical about the identity of the servant. What was he planning to do?
