After the old man served them tea, he offered them two trays of dessert and a pile of fruits that looked like the Snow Goddess Fruit, except smaller.
Ah Luo grabbed a handful in excitement. “Divine Peas. They’re the best!”
Gu Bailu’s lips twitched. Is there anything that isn’t delicious to you?
She took a few of them, too. The taste wasn’t bad. Soft and sticky, they were like candy, but with more flavor.
After she had them, she felt abnormally high.
Were there stimulants in them?
“Do you know how much this costs?” Gu Wanqin glared at them, as if she was about to take the peas out of their mouths.
Gu Bailu glanced at her. “You didn’t order them?”
“Why would I? Every pea costs three thousand bucks!”
Gu Wanqin raised her voice, her feigned gentleness gone.
She had indeed brought a lot of money, but she couldn’t afford such extravagance. Besides, why would she waste her money on them?
Three thousand bucks for each pea?
Gu Bailu looked at the black plate, only to discover that it said “3000 for one Divine Pea, and 500,000 for a plate.”
Gu Bailu was lost for words.
Boss, are you serious? You gave us something we didn’t order?
“Grandpa, we didn’t order this. Why did you bring this over?”
Although it was Gu Wanqin’s money, she couldn’t be taken advantage of like that.
“It’s free.” The old man smiled and continued with his business.
Gu Bailu saw him add a certain powder to the tea. There was no telling what it was.
Was it some sort of dodgy drug?
Why was he offering them the food for free?
“Don’t worry. I’ve been doing business for fifty years. I only earn money; I don’t kill anyone.” The old man knew exactly what Gu Bailu was thinking.
Hehe. I know that you don’t kill anyone, but you’re a fraud!
“Why did you offer them to us for free?”
“Because that guy over there already paid for you.” The old man jerked his chin at a man in black in a corner.
The man was completely in black and wore an intimidating mask.
Gu Bailu was certain that she didn’t know him, since she sensed nothing familiar about him.
Then why had he bought her something?
“Who is he?” asked Gu Bailu curiously.
The old man shook his head. “Don’t ask for his name. Those who know his name are all gone.”
Gu Bailu walked over, but before she reached him, the man already flashed ten meters away.
“What the heck? A good samaritan?”
Gu Bailu returned to her table. Ah Luo was enjoying the Divine Peas.
Gu Wanqin stared at the man in black until he disappeared.
She clenched her fists tightly. Why was Gu Bailu so lucky? She was hopeless, but somebody had bought her Divine Peas.
Divine Peas could help the growth of spiritual power.
The loser didn’t have any spiritual power. It was simply a waste.
Gu Bailu didn’t care that much. Since it was paid for, she decided to enjoy it.
They truly tasted delicious.
Gu Wanqin saw Ah Luo secretly hide a lot of the peas and was rather angry, but she didn’t want to talk about it.
Just as Gu Bailu smiled, somebody cried out miserably not far away. She hurried to stand up. Then, the expression on her face changed greatly.
