Chapter 608: Madam

“Mind my words? Didn’t Hundred Herbs Building spread this news?” Jiang Yuzhi didn’t detect that Yue Ling’s expression was amiss at all. She instead thought that she had got it right, so she continued, “I remember that she brought Duan Ziyu along with her when she first came to Hundred Herbs Building. He is Mu Qinghe’s confidant. Didn’t you also give Duan Ziyu face, which is why you refused to sell me the Jizo coral?”

After that, the news of Mu Qinghe being Chu Liuyue’s backer gradually surfaced. Afterward, someone started spreading that she had an extraordinary relationship with Jian Fengchi.

Chu Liuyue only came to Xi Ling for less than a month, and she was already related to the two of them. She was pretty capable.

Yue Ling coldly said, “Fourth Missy Jiang, if I don’t remember wrongly, Ms. Chu clearly bid a higher price than you that day. That was why she eventually took away that piece of Jizo coral.”

Jiang Yuzhi’s face immediately turned ugly, but she still forcefully said, “Anyway, I came here today to tell you that Chu Liuyue and Mu Qinghe aren’t related at all! She doesn’t have any backers here in Xi Ling City! She’s just a lowly woman that came from outside Heaven’s Canopy!”

Hearing the first half of the sentence, Yue Ling heaved a sigh of relief. But when he heard the latter half, all his hair stood on end.

He stepped forward, stared at Jiang Yuzhi closely, and sternly said, “Fourth Missy Jiang, please take back what you just said!”

Jiang Yuzhi chuckled nonchalantly. “Why? General Manager Yue, do you still not believe me? Why don’t we invite Lieutenant Mu over so that we can personally ask him?”

It’s fine if she wants to die, but she shouldn’t drag me down! Yue Ling secretly scolded Jiang Yuzhi for not having brains. “We’ve long known that Ms. Chu has no relations with Lieutenant Mu, but she’s our Hundred Herbs Building’s VIP now. Therefore, we won’t let her be insulted like this! Fourth Missy Jiang, if you can accept the consequences of offending our Hundred Herbs Building, you can continue talking!”

Jiang Yuzhi was dazed for a while before reacting to what he said. He’s saying that… He long knew that Chu Liuyue had no backer, but he was this protective of her because she had spent quite a bit of money here?

“You…” Seeing Yue Ling’s cold expression, she couldn’t help but shudder in fear. I just stated some facts. Why did Yue Ling react so greatly? It even seems like he wants to beat me up!

Even though she was spoiled rotten and was normally arrogant, compared to someone like Yue Ling, she was still too tender and couldn’t put up a front before him.

“I… I just came to tell you… S-she’s not that amazing… Why must you guys treat her so nicely?!” Jiang Yuzhi felt infuriated and confused. In terms of identity and status, mine are so much better than Chu Liuyue! So what if Chu Liuyue really had Mu Qinghe as her backing? Mu Qinghe is still my brother’s subordinate! But now, Yue Ling is taking the risk to offend me because of a Chu Liuyue? What’s wrong with him?

Yue Ling was about to go crazy. I didn’t check the calendar before I came out today, and I actually met with such a dumb person! Yes, Chu Liuyue doesn’t have much backing in Xi Ling, but she has a backer miles away! And the key is that the distinguished backer is currently upstairs! Master must’ve already seen and heard everything here!

Thinking of this, Yue Ling even wanted to kill Jiang Yuzhi. He took a deep breath in and boomed, “Fourth Missy Jiang, you don’t have to teach me how to run Hundred Herbs Building. Servants, send Fourth Missy Jiang out!”

Jiang Yuzhi pointed at herself in disbelief. “You want to chase me away?”

Yue Ling’s lips curved up without much smiling intent. “You can say whatever you want outside. But in my Hundred Herbs Building’s territory, nobody is allowed to insult my black gold card VIPs. Fourth Missy Jiang, sorry for offending you.”

As he spoke, he coldly looked at the pageboy and guard at the side. “Why are you still standing around?”

With his command, the crowd rushed over in unison. General Manager is very scary today! He’s even scarier than when he taught those women with loose mouths a lesson that day!

The crowd was petrified as they hurriedly carried Jiang Yuzhi out.

Jiang Yuzhi was so angry that her lungs almost exploded. “Yue Ling, how dare you treat me like this?! My brother definitely won’t let you off!”

Yue Ling walked to the entrance and looked down at Jiang Yuzhi from above as he slightly smiled. “Fourth Missy Jiang, our rules have always been like this. Even if Eldest Young Master Jiang comes, it’s the same. Besides… Eldest Young Master Jiang has been very low-key recently. If he finds out about today’s incident, I don’t know who will be in trouble.”

Jiang Yuzhi’s heart sank, and she suddenly panicked. Yes, I actually forgot that Brother had previously warned me against causing trouble. He still doesn’t know that I’ve secretly run out. If this news travels to him, he definitely won’t let me off!

Thinking of this, she started to become scared.

Yue Ling continued, “Oh, right. Fourth Missy Jiang, you don’t need to come here anymore. Our Hundred Herbs Building won’t do your business from now on. Giving Eldest Young Master Jiang face, we won’t implicate your family members. However, I do hope that you will be more careful with your words and actions in the future, Fourth Missy Jiang. If not, you won’t even know when you’ve dug a hole for yourself.”

He then turned around to enter the building, leaving Jiang Yuzhi dazed on the spot. What did he mean just now…? How dare he treat me like this?!

Due to anger, Jiang Yuzhi’s face became slightly contorted. She immediately wanted to rush in, but Yue Ling’s previous words kept reverberating in her mind.

She felt conflicted on the spot for quite some time. Only when the surrounding people started pointing at her did she finally run away in humiliation.

Yue Ling returned to the third floor and saw Rong Xiu sitting in the room quietly.

The latter looked calm, and nobody could see his expression.

Yue Ling was about to speak up when he suddenly heard Rong Xiu say, “It seems like she has been having quite a bit of fun in Xi Ling lately.”

A chill suddenly ran down Yue Ling’s spine. “…Master… Actually, all of these are rumors… You also know that people start to talk nonsense when they gather… Ms. Liuyue is actually—”

Rong Xiu looked up and glanced at him calmly. “Remember—other than in front of her, you must call her ‘Madam’ in the future.”
