“What’s wrong?” Xia Xibei asked in bewilderment.
“I saw someone I despise,” Tang Luo answered, not bothering to conceal the disgust on his face.
“Someone you despise?”
Xia Xibei turned around and saw a girl sitting by the window of the bookstore.
The girl was probably about their age and looked like a high school student. She had a pretty face, and was wearing a rose-red dress, exquisite makeup and long fake lashes completing the look.
There was a book placed in front of her, and beside that was a cup of coffee.
Her chin was cupped with her left hand and she was stirring the coffee with her right hand, her gaze pinned on the book.
She appeared completely focused, giving off an artsy vibe.
This was a beautiful view that drew many visitors into the bookstore.
However, the girl did not seem to be bothered by this at all. She was still enjoying her book, looking at it leisurely.
“You have a feud with her?” Xia Xibei asked.
“We are sworn enemies!” Tang Luo informed her through gritted teeth.
Xia Xibei raised her brows in surprise. She never would have thought of Tang Luo as a person with his own stories.
Before she could speak, she caught sight of another familiar figure.
Xia Qinghan walked towards the girl with a smile on her face, the girl standing up before she got near the table.
People in the surroundings couldn’t help but admire the two gorgeous girls embracing each other.
At this point, Xia Xibei couldn’t help but roll her eyes.
Anyone who hung out with Xia Qinghan couldn’t be a good person.
“Well? Are we still going inside?” Xia Xibei asked.
“No,” Tang Luo shook his head, “I never fight wars that I have no confidence in winning.”
With his current ability, his chances of winning were slim if he confronted the family.
All that awaited him would be humiliation.
Also, pure bickering was rather pointless.
“Alright then, we’ll go to another bookstore.”
Xia Xibei understood how Tang Luo felt, so she voiced her agreement immediately.
Moments later, however, it seemed like Tang Luo couldn’t quite hold it in anymore.
“Give me a moment.”
Then he fumbled to take out his phone. With his back leaning against the wall, he hung his head low and started typing.
A few minutes later, he stood up and stuffed his phone back into his pocket, a faint smile on his face.
“Alright, let’s go.”
Xia Xibei watched his actions with some puzzlement but did not question him.
Very soon however, she realized what Tang Luo had been doing.
A group of girls passed them by, chattering unhappily.
“That bookstore is just disgusting! Do they really think we can’t tell the price?”
“You’re right! If I didn’t look closer, they would have taken a few yuan more from me!”
“Yours was just a few yuan, I heard someone beside me say that they gave twenty yuan more!”
“The amount doesn’t matter. That was simply wrong and disgusting! I won’t visit the shop anymore!”
“They even had the guts to say that it was the computer’s problem! Haha! Who the hell would believe that?!”
Those weren’t big sums of money as far as the girls were concerned, but paying even a single cent above what they should have would be enough to infuriate them! That was fraud, wasn’t it?!
A realization hit Xia Xibei as she listened to their conversation.
It was Tang Luo who did this, wasn’t it?
Although all he did was create a little disturbance, it would be enough of a headache for them.
“The shop belongs to that girl?” Xia Xibei asked.
Tang Luo had no intention of hiding it from her, “Yes, it is hers.”
With her brows raised, Xia Xibei patted him on the shoulder, “Pretty great. If you have anger within, it must always be vented!”
They never took the initiative to cause trouble. However, if someone purposely stepped on their toes, they had to teach them a lesson.
Tang Luo cast her a look at her with profound eyes, beaming.
“Yes, anger must be vented!”
