On this day, Sima You Yue was talking to Sima Liu Xuan in the room when there was a knock on the door, announcing that the City Lord was here.
“He really came.” Mu Si was slightly surprised, “Master, how do you know he will come to you?”
“He will change the name of this city to Tangerine City, which shows his love for tangerines has reached the highest point. Not to mention, the steward brought so many top grade tangerines back so suddenly, he would definitely ask for the source.” Sima You Yue said, “For a person who is crazy over tangerines, seeing that I can take out so many tangerines out so readily, he will definitely come to our door.”
“Master, you did it on purpose?” Mu Si asked.
“I didn’t do it deliberately, but I guessed it when I sold the thousand jin of tangerines.” Sima You Yue smiled, “I also want to see how he is like, one who shows his unrestrained love for something so casually.”
Being able to suppress the entire city, this was definitely not a simple person!
“You better head over then, no matter what, this person is the City Lord, don’t let people wait for long.” Huang Ying Ying urged her.
Sima You Yue went downstairs and there were no guests in the lobby at this time. A man dressed in magnificent robes was sitting on an extremely luxurious chair.
There wasn’t such a chair before, obviously the man brought it himself.
Hearing the movement on the stairs, the man turned his head, and seeing the enchanting face, Sima You Yue was stunned momentarily.
Beauty that can cause the downfall of dynasties!
Although she was accustomed to Wu Lingyu’s superbly handsome face, she couldn’t help but sigh in her heart when she saw Lang Zhong’s face and charismatic gaze.
“I didn’t expect that the person who sold such delicious tangerines would be a young lady! I still thought that it would be a wrinkly old lady!” Lang Zhong said, his voice languid and deep.
“I didn’t expect that the casual and easy-going Tangerine City Lord would actually be a charismatic gentleman which leaves one in awe.” Sima You Yue walked down the stairs and came before Lang Zhong shortly. “May I know why City Lord Lang came to look for this Young Lady? Is there anything?”
Lang Zhong was nestled in the chair and saw Sima You Yue’s clear gaze. Except for a short moment of being stunned on her first glance, her gaze was resolutely clear when she looked at him after.
Few women can still look at him, which makes him feel very comfortable.
“Were you the one who sold those tangerines?” He asked.
“Yes. I heard that City Lord Lang likes tangerines, and I just happened to have some on hand so I sold some. Speaking of which, City Lord Lang has paid quite a good price. You Yue thanks you.” The moment Sima You Yue thought of the three thousand top grades crystals she earned so easily, she became very happy in her heart and the smile on her face also brightened along with it.
Lang Zhong looked at her bright smile and was in a slight daze.
She was… also so beautiful!
He has seen his fair share of beautiful women, but she was the first to make him feel comfortable.
“City Lord Lang, you just came to see what the person selling tangerines looks like?” Sima You Yue asked.
“No, I’m here to buy tangerines.” Lang Zhong said, “However, that was the previous purpose.”
“Then what’s the purpose now?” Sima You Yue asked.
“The purpose now…” Lang Zhong smiled at her, “Now, I want you to be my woman?”
Sima You Yue was stunned, his guards were stunned, even the people in the room upstairs were stunned.
Let her be his woman? Doesn’t their Master dislike women?
He also said that all women were all fake, and just looking at them makes his eyes hurt.
But, why did you say such words to this woman who only just met and barely had a few glances?
Sima You Yue was speechless and reminded: “City Lord Lang, are you kidding? This is the first time we met.”
“The number of times we have met is not important, the important thing is our fate.” Lang Zhong got up from the chair, came to her, leaned over slightly and said, “We are destined, even if we met for the first time, it seems that we have met a thousand times.”
The corners of Sima You Yue’s mouth twitched and she couldn’t help but say, “City Lord Lang means that it’s love at first sight?”
“Is it love at first sight? I’m not sure about it. What I can be sure of is that I feel for you. So, I want you to be my woman!” Lang Zhong said domineeringly.
“Uh…” Sima You Yue rolled her eyes in her heart, really a domineering and self-willed person.
If it was an ordinary person, this love would definitely blossom happily if she was confessed to by a person like him who is handsome and capable.
But, she is not in this range of ordinary.
“I’m sorry, I already have a sweetheart.” She smiled and refused him straightaway.
Lang Zhong did not expect that she would reject him and he immediately asked, “Is he more handsome than me?”
“In my eyes, he is the most handsome.” Sima You Yue said.
“So he’s ugly?”
“No, he looks good. It’s just that I don’t judge a person by looks.” Sima You Yue said, “So, it’s not that you are not as good-looking as him that I refused your advances.”
“Why is that?”
“I said, I have someone I like in my heart.” Sima You Yue said, “I like him, no matter how good others are, I will not change my mind.”
“But won’t people change? You can like him, so that means that you can like me too,” Lang Zhong countered.
Sima You Yue looked at him seriously and wondered if this person’s EQ was too low? People like him who think like this should not know what true love was.
“If you truly like someone, you won’t change your mind just because you met another outstanding person. If that happens, then it’s not true love.” Sima You Yue said.
“True love? What is that?”
“That is an involuntary feeling, just like how you like to eat tangerines, you will feel happy when you think of it. However, I don’t think you will understand now.” Sima You Yue said.
“Because you haven’t felt this way before.” Sima You Yue said, “When you meet someone you really like, you will understand.”
“Someone you really like?” Lang Zhong’s eyes were very puzzled. Has he ever really liked someone in his heart?
“City Lord Lang, if you want to buy tangerines, we can discuss it. If it’s other things, please go back.”
The shopkeeper sucked in a cold breath when he heard her talking to Lang Zhong like this.
Those people who talked to him this way before seemed to have never appeared in the city ever again.
However, Lang Zhong was not angry this time. He put away his doubts and said, “How many do you have?”
“How much do you want?”
“If you have ten thousand, I can add another piece to the price.”
“Alright! It’s a deal!”
Sima You Yue waved her hand, and a hundred baskets of tangerines appeared in the vast hall.
“I only have so much, even if you want to ask for more, that’s all I have,” She said.
“Here’s the payment!” Lang Zhong handed her a crystal card before he put the tangerines away, turned and left with his entourage.
But as he left the inn, he looked back at Sima You Yue who had turned and went upstairs, not knowing what was on his mind.
