Chapter 523: Important Guest

It turns out that this person is Hundred Herbs Building’s General Manager, Yue Ling. Hasn’t it been very hard to see him all along? Rumors have it that even when some powerful people in Xi Ling City want to see him, they have to send him an invitation one month in advance. Also, they might not necessarily see him.

Logically speaking, a mere herb store’s general manager shouldn’t be able to compare to them, and he definitely couldn’t be arrogant in front of them.

But… Yue Ling was different. This was because he was in charge of Hundred Herbs Building!

That which was rare was dear. Whatever other places didn’t have, he had. So naturally, he had an advantage over the rest.

In Xi Ling City, nobody wanted to offend Hundred Herbs Building. This was because nobody dared to guarantee that they wouldn’t need to buy herbs from Hundred Herbs Building for the rest of their lives.

Everyone who knew this wouldn’t dig a hole for themselves.

The few women obviously couldn’t offend Yue Ling, so they hesitated for a while before apologizing obediently. “S-sorry.”

Yue Ling nodded and smiled slightly. “I believe you ladies won’t make such a mistake again in the future.”

The few women heaved a sigh of relief at the same time.

But without waiting for them to speak, Yue Ling told the pageboy beside them, “Why are you still in a daze? Send these ladies out quickly.”

A chill ran down the pageboy’s spine as he hurriedly said, “Yes! Yes!”

As he spoke, he had already rapidly turned around the crystal cabinet and walked to the few of them before pointing toward the door. “Ladies, please—”

“T-this… General Manager Yue, what does this mean?” asked one of the women in confusion. “We haven’t bought our things yet!”

Yue Ling’s smile did not change. “I know.”

He was clearly chasing them out.

The pageboy immediately hurried them. “Ladies, please—”

Even though these few women were enraged, they didn’t dare to cause a scene at Hundred Herbs Building. Hence, they could only leave angrily.

“Let’s go!”

At the door, one of the women finally couldn’t take it as she turned around and glanced at them. Suppressing her anger, she said, “I didn’t expect Hundred Herbs Building to treat their customers like this! Even if you invite us over next time, we won’t come!”

Yue Ling smiled and said, “Ladies, you don’t have to worry about this. From today onward, our Hundred Herbs Building will not do your business.”

Everyone was shocked when he said this.

The few women that had walked out of the store all stopped and looked at Yue Ling in shock.

The woman who had been speaking was also taken aback. “General Manager Yue, w-what does this mean?”

“It means what it means. The few of you have publicly humiliated our Hundred Herbs Building’s black gold card VIP, so we naturally have to show you our stance. Every time you come by here from now on, please use another route.” Yue Ling’s tone was very gentle, but his words were cruel and heartless. “Oh, right. The same goes for your family members.”

The entire first floor was so silent that a needle could be heard if it dropped.

Yue Ling is indeed harsh! He actually stopped doing business with their entire families! These women will definitely be severely punished when they go back! Even though they had said bad things about Chu Liuyue, this is too overboard… Though some people thought this way, nobody was stupid enough to put in a good word for them.

What a joke. Who will be so brainless as to offend Yue Ling for someone unrelated?

The few women obviously noticed that something was amiss as they respectively started begging out of anxiety. Two of them even cried.

But Yue Ling was too lazy to bother with them, so he directly turned around.

A few pageboys went up together and chased the women out.

The women paced outside the door for quite some time and attracted some attention. But they couldn’t say the reason themselves, so they could only walk away miserably.

Yue Ling’s gaze scanned across the crowd on the first floor as he smiled slightly. “Everyone, sorry for the disturbance. We’ll compensate you with a small gift later on. Please forgive us.”

The crowd hurriedly agreed happily.

Yue Ling had already done this, so they definitely had to give him face.

After assuring the crowd, Yue Ling went upstairs. He walked up to the third floor alone.

A middle-aged man walked toward him. “General Manager, why did you suddenly come today?”

This person was Hundred Herbs Building’s Assistant General Manager, Cui Fangyi.

Yue Ling walked into the room that belonged to him on the third floor, and the middle-aged man followed him in.

After closing the door, Yue Ling suddenly heaved a sigh of relief, and he looked scared. “Luckily, I didn’t go too late…”

Cui Fangyi was at a loss. “What did you say?”

Yue Ling shook his head, walked over to sit down, and said, “You should know what happened downstairs. If such matters happen again, you should handle them like this.”

Cui Fangyi furrowed his thick brows. “Are you saying… If anyone insults our black gold card VIPs next time, we won’t do their business? But you didn’t make this rule before. Do you really plan to do this? Those few people did speak in an overboard manner, but… they don’t deserve this!”

Yue Ling looked up at him. “Why do you think I rushed over today?”

Cui Fangyi was dazed as he suddenly widened his eyes in shock. “Did you specifically come for Chu—”

Yue Ling nodded.

“I only received this piece of news today.” He pointed upstairs. “From now on, this Ms. Chu is our Hundred Herbs Building’s very, very, very important guest!”

Cui Fangyi gasped. What status does this Chu Liuyue exactly have?

“I should’ve received this piece of news a few days ago, but I only received it now because of some delays on the way here.” Yue Ling smiled bitterly as he shook his head and sighed. “I didn’t expect that just because it was a few days late, Ms. Chu had already come to our Hundred Herbs Building. But that’s good too. Now that she’s a black gold card VIP, we can use it as a reason.”

Though Cui Fangyi was still stunned, he immediately agreed. “Yes!”
