Gu Yanqiu looked at Ye Lu then pondered.
To be honest, Gu Yanqiu was quite satisfied with Ye Lu personally, and he could see Ye Lu’s potential, however, he was not sure in his heart, because the Zhang family was very powerful and financially strong, even with Elder Su and Elder Shen supporting Ye Lu, Gu Yanqiu did not feel that Ye Lu could stand up to the Zhang family.
What’s more, the Zhang family had produced a demonic son, and now they were involved with mysterious cultivators, which made it even worse.
In fact, this marriage proposal meeting was prepared for the Zhang family, the reason why so many people had come was to let everyone see the strength and style of the Zhang family, but no one expected such a result, not only did they not see the style, but they also got a dusty face.
However, Gu Yanqiu also understood that this Ye Lu, who was in front of him, was just as bad to mess with, and no matter how one looked at Ye Lu, he did not look like a person who was pleasant to the eyes.
“Yanqiu, what are you hesitating for, all of this is still caused by you, you disobedient and unfilial thing.”
Seeing Gu Yanqiu’s hesitant look, Gu Mingyue then said as he banged his cane on the ground.
He was already completely disappointed with this son of his.
Gu Yanqiu thought about the fact that soon those debt collectors would be arriving, and now the attitude of the Zhang family was also unclear, so he could not lose his wife and give up his army, so he gritted his teeth and said.
“Good, in that case, I will betroth my daughter to Duke Ye Lu.”
As a result, just as he finished his words, Ye Lu stood up and spat out a mouthful of spittle and said.
Everyone was thinking, “Didn’t Ye Lu make all this fuss just to get Gushiki? What exactly does this “bah!” mean?
As a result, Ye Luo “bah!” After he finished, he pointed at Gu Yanqiu and said.
“Thanks to you being a father, what do you take your own daughter for? A piece of merchandise? A thing that can make money? Are you still a man?”
Seeing Ye Lu actually say such words, Gu Yanqiu’s mouth opened wide in surprise.
Ye Lu then went on to say.
“Gu Shiqi is free, she can fall in love with whoever she wants, she can marry whoever she wants, you have no right to make any decision for him.”
“I’m not here to marry Gushiki either, I’m here to give her freedom and let her get rid of this boneless father of yours.”
After saying that, Ye Lu turned his words to look at Gu Yanqiu’s eyes and said.
“Gu Yanqiu, can you really sleep well at night when you act out such a drama, sacrificing your daughter to pay the debt you owe, sacrificing the Gu family’s family fortune to pay it, and not taking any responsibility for it yourself?”
Being said by Ye Lu, Gu Yanqiu was speechless.
However, Ye Luo followed and said.
“Don’t worry, the debt you owe, I will borrow money from Su Lao to help you pay it off, however, I have one condition, that is, please stay away from all the affairs of the Gu Family and have Grandpa Gu rearrange them, as for the matter of the Gu Family being gutted into an empty shell and the debt the Gu Family owes, you don’t have to worry about it, I have my own way.”
“In addition, don’t worry, these money that I helped you to cover your debts, I won’t let you pay it back, I will help you to pay back Su Lao, I am doing this because I don’t want Gu Shiqi to be without a father.”
After saying that, Ye Lu stopped paying attention to Gu Yanqiu, instead, he gave a salute to Gu Mingyue and said.
“Hello Grandpa Gu, my little one was a bit too wild just now, I made you laugh, can you release Gu Shiqi now?”
Hearing Ye Luo’s words, Gu Mingyue then smiled and said.
“Of course, go and call Shiqi over.”
Then, he turned to look at Gu Yanqiu and said.
“Yanqiu, there is nothing more for you to do here, also, the Gu family will be managed by Lao San in the future, I originally thought that you were just a bit of a philanderer, I didn’t think you would be so bad, you go ahead, I will arrange for someone to do the handover with, the company’s legal entity is still me anyway.”
Hearing Gu Mingyue’s words, Gu Yanqiu then stood up with a gloomy expression and left the villa.
Ye Luo then turned his head to look at Su Lao and said.
“Elder Su, I’ll just have to trouble you with the billion or so gambling debt that Gu Yanqiu owes, I’ll pay you back when I earn some money.”
Su Lao then smiled and said.
“It’s all trivial, all this money is like floating clouds to me, however, what Little Friend Ye promised me, to help me raise my cultivation level by a cut, don’t forget it, Little Friend!”
He had also encountered a bottleneck in his cultivation and was unable to make any progress no matter how hard he tried, so he had chosen to enter the world to do business.
When he heard that Ye Lu had a way to improve his cultivation, he hated to give all his possessions to Ye Lu.
After he finished speaking, Elder Su looked at Gu Shiqi who was running over from the distance, then looked at Elder Shen and said with a smile.
“Old Shen, our mission is also completed, so don’t add to the mess here, let’s go.”
Old Shen also smiled, and followed the two men then led the people away together.
Seeing how Old Su and Old Shen treated Ye Luo, Gu Mingyue felt more and more how Ye Luo looked.
“Ye Luo, you’re really here!”
Gu Shiqi shouted from afar, followed by running over, and only when she got close did she see that her grandfather and third uncle were also there, she immediately stood there blushing and somewhat at a loss.
Ye Lu smiled and said.
“Don’t worry, it’s all settled, no one will force you to tie the knot again, you are free now.”
Hearing Ye Lu say that she was free, Gu Shiqi immediately smiled happily, but then she thought about how her father had not promised herself to Ye Lu. According to her logic, Ye Lu should have stood out from the others who were asking for his hand in marriage, but now it seemed that the ending was not quite the same as she had thought.
I don’t know why, but Gu Shiqi was inexplicably a bit lost in her heart.
Gu Mingyue then looked at Gu Shiqi and said with a smile.
“Shiqi, don’t thank your classmate Ye Lu, if it wasn’t for him, your father would definitely not have been able to pass this hurdle, he would have owed more than a billion dollars in debt all of a sudden!”
Once she heard that Ye Lu was in debt for more than a billion dollars, Gu Shiqi was shocked.
However, followed by Gu Shiqi then smiled and said.
“A billion or so is nothing, I’m sure Ye Lu will be able to earn it, hehehe!”
As she said that she also gave a thumbs up to Ye Lu.
Ye Lu smiled helplessly, to be honest, he currently had no idea about earning a billion or so, then he looked at Third Uncle and said.
“That, Third Uncle, why don’t you take a look at the current deficit of the family first and see if I can be of any help?”
Third Uncle smiled and said.
“Well, there’s no rush on that, I need to check the accounts before I can do that, you’ve been busy all morning too, it’s better to go out with Shiqi, I guess being with us makes you youngsters restrained.”
To be honest, it was Third Uncle who was the most understanding, in front of Gu Mingyue and Third Uncle, Ye Lu did feel very awkward, mainly because he had not experienced such an occasion before either, he simply did not know what to say, hearing Third Uncle’s words, he turned his head to look at Gu Shiqi as if he had been pardoned.
Gu Shiqi and Third Uncle made a face and then said with a smile.
“Then we’re leaving, Third Uncle, Grandpa, you guys get busy.”
After saying that, she pulled Ye Lu towards the outside of the villa.
“Gu Shiqi, I owe more than a billion dollars, you’re actually not anxious at all, and you can still laugh.”
Ye Luo said as he walked and looked at a happy looking Gushiki.
Unexpectedly Ye Lu really came to save herself and also solved the crisis of her family, Gu Shiqi was really happy at this moment, she looked at Ye Lu and said with a smile.
“You are so powerful, what’s so scary, don’t you know how to divine, calculate the numbers of the next double-colour ball, then put a thousand bets on the five million jackpot and it will be solved.”
Hearing Gu Shiqi’s words, Ye Lu almost spurted out a mouthful of blood wildly as he said with a black line.
“First of all, I don’t have the ability to divine now, even if I did, I guess I can’t calculate such a thing, at least I haven’t heard of anyone who has calculated the numbers, besides, the maximum number of bets for the double-colour ball is only one hundred, okay?”
When Ye Lu finished, Gu Shiqi spat out her tongue and said.
“Oh, hehehe! I really don’t know, but don’t worry, this girl has another trick, that is ‘gambling on stones’, we will try it out in a while, you will know.”
At this time, the two people had already walked to the entrance of the villa, the doorman who had taken a bunch of money from Ye Lu was taken aback when he saw the intimate appearance of Gu Shiqi and Ye Lu.
“Shit! No way, this kid really succeeded in his marriage proposal!”
So, he immediately stood upright then gave a salute and said.
“Good day, auntie!”
Hearing this salutation, Ye Lu almost didn’t fall to the ground.
And at this moment, the Zhang family was in a state of chaos.
“How is the young master’s injury?”
“The young master is not well, he has been still vomiting blood, however, the bodyguard seems to be worse, he is already unconscious, only Daoist Master Hsueh-Chen seems to be in no serious condition.”
“How did this happen?”
Zhang Hao Yu, the Zhang family’s family head and Zhang Yang’s father, couldn’t figure out what was going on, the battle was over by then and he didn’t see anything wrong with Zhang Tian, who was still sitting there drinking some tea, only with an extremely depressed expression.
“Could it be a case of anxious fire? Pissed off.”
Zhang Haoyu muttered darkly, however, he felt that this wasn’t right either, it was impossible for all three of them to be so angry that they vomited blood, it must still be that Ye Lu who was up to no good.
So, he went over to Daoist Master Daochen and asked anxiously.
For his part, Daochen thought for a moment and said.
“Yes, the other party must have done something, but, it was me who didn’t even notice, the other party is indeed a master, moreover, I can be sure that the other party should be an evil cultivator, I don’t know what kind of evil gongfu he practiced, it’s harmful to people.”
Zhang Haoyu was not concerned about the evil cultivator, he was concerned about his own son, so he once again turned to the dust and asked.
“Daoist Master Daochen, then how is my son’s condition, will he be in danger?”
Daochen shook his head and said.
“Don’t worry, it won’t be dangerous, I still have a few pills, later you can give them to Zhang Tian and that bodyguard, it won’t be a big problem, although the other party caused the damage from inside, but since it is a chronic attack damage, so the damage is rather not very big, especially since the young master’s body has been tempered by the ‘Immortal Pill’ It won’t be that easy to die.”
Hearing Daoist Master Dust’s words, Zhang Haoyu was then relieved.
However, in his heart, he already hated Ye Luo madly, if it wasn’t for Ye Luo, everyone would have seen their Zhang family’s scenery today, and their Zhang family would definitely have shown a big face, but it turned out to be a punch in the face, which made him a bit heartbroken.
“Let’s wait for Tian’er to wake up and see what happens next?”
Zhang Haoyu said with a sigh.
And at this moment, Ye Lu wanted to explain to the security guard at the entrance of the villa that he was actually not the aunt, however, seeing that Gushiki was smiling and didn’t say anything, he stopped at the edge of his mouth, Gushiki didn’t say anything, wouldn’t he lose face if he explained blindly to Gushiki.
Followed by, the two people left the villa door.
“Boy! Really people can’t be seen, I didn’t expect this little loser to really succeed.”
The doorman security guard said with an incredulous look on his face.
Gu Shiqi, on the other hand, pulled Ye Lu and said as she beckoned for a taxi.
“Ye Lu, you have to treat me first, I haven’t slept and eaten well for the past few days, by the way, do you know about ‘gambling stones’?”
Ye Lu shook his head, not to mention understanding, he had never even heard of it.
Seeing Ye Luo shake his head, Gu Shiqi’s brow furrowed, because this was the simpler way she could think of to get a lot of money, of course, only if Ye Luo was proficient in this.
Still, she said patiently.
“It’s a term in the jewellery world, simply put, it means that some stones are cut from the raw stone before they are finally shaped, like jadeite bracelets and the like, and some jade stones too, but before they are cut, these raw stones look just like ordinary stones, and people don’t know what they are like inside.”
“And the process of buying such raw stones is called ‘gambling on stones’, to put it bluntly, it’s a bet on whether a stone will be good or bad after it’s opened, do you understand?”
Hearing Gu Shiqi’s words, Ye Lu nodded, to be honest this “gambling on stones” sounded very simple and straightforward, however, although he had the ability to identify, he did not have the ability to see through, so he had to try it out.
So, Ye Lu picked up a stone from the roadside and read the introduction.
It turned out that although the profile was very detailed, stating the weight, volume, composition and so on of the stone, it did not say what the inside of the stone was like.
Instead, Gu Shiqi continued.
“In the world of gambling stones, there is a popular saying called ‘one cut is poor, one cut is rich, one cut is draped in sackcloth’, meaning that it is possible to make a profit with one cut and the colour inside the stone is good, or it is possible to make a loss with one cut and the colour is not good, but there are indeed people who bet right and make tens of millions of dollars on a piece of hand, several The first time I heard that there were hundreds of millions of dollars in it, Ye Luo was very happy.
When he heard that there were several hundred million, Ye Lu originally wanted to throw the stone in his hand aside, but ended up carrying it again, when the taxi arrived.
Ye Luo got into the car carrying the stone and asked as he studied it.
“Gushiki, your family is so rich, you must have a car and a driver, why do you still take a taxi?”
Gu Shiqi said with a smile.
“I don’t want to do my family’s car, there’s no privacy at all where I’m going.”
Hearing Gushiki’s words, Ye Lu smiled, and then opened the “auxiliary functions”.
Unexpectedly, he really found it.
“All-round perspective photography and video recording.”
Ye Luo instantly locked on to this ability, which was one of the special abilities of the glasses to take photos and videos, that is, to take photos or record videos in a mode similar to an X-ray slice.
Ye Lu held up the stone in his hand, then selected the location of the slice and clicked on the “Take Picture” button.
Sure enough, a clear picture of the stone’s section appeared in front of him, with all details clearly visible.
“Hey, hey, hey, hey!”
Seeing this scene, Ye Luo “hehehehe!” laughed.
Gu Shiqi, on the other hand, looked at him with some confusion.
“Ye Lu, what’s wrong with you, why are you laughing at a broken stone, is it a treasure?”
Gu Shiqi asked in confusion.
Ye Lu shook his head and said.
“This stone is not a treasure, however, I suddenly know how to ‘gamble on stones’, we will definitely find a good treasure later, however, I don’t know what kind of stone is worth, your tell me when the time comes.”
Gu Shiqi said with a smile.
“This is no problem, I am absolutely rich in theoretical knowledge.”
At this time, the driver of that taxi suddenly spoke up.
“Are you two little dolls actually going to gamble on stones? I advise you guys not to stick to this aspect of things after all, do you know why I drive a taxi anymore, it’s because I went bankrupt gambling on stones.”
Hearing his words, Gu Shiqi was curious and made small talk with him.
As a result, this driver said that he turned out to be a millionaire too, but it was because he was obsessed with gambling on stones, buying stones everywhere without sparing any blood, and eventually his money was all built up and even his wife left him.
“I’ll tell you what, those stones, more than ninety percent are nothing of value, the rest and ninety percent will lose money, it’s not easy to get some okay it, and not good to sell real estate, in short, ‘ten gambling nine losses’ best not to stick to this area of things. ”
In fact, this reasoning Ye Lu slightly thought about it will understand, how can there be treasures everywhere, however, he is now but extremely confident, so he smiled and said.
“Master driver, thank you for your reminder, however, don’t worry, I am already 100% sure.”
Hearing Ye Luo’s words, the driver shook his head helplessly, in his opinion, it was really hard to persuade a damn ghost with good words, so he let them go, anyway, it was not his own money that was lost.
After getting off the bus, Ye Lu threw the stone into the rubbish bin, while Gu Shiqi ran over curiously and asked.
“Ye Luo, you said you were 100% sure of your success in gambling on the stones, is that true?”
Ye Luo smiled and nodded his head.
Gu Shiqi then asked at the root of the matter.
“Because what ah, what’s your secret, tell me quickly?”
Of course Ye Luo couldn’t say, and with that, the two laughed and joked and went to the restaurant to order something to eat.
In the east city, in a shop called “Shi Lai Run”, the owner was sitting in the shop, dumbfounded.
“Business is getting worse and worse these days.”
He sighed helplessly, he had been running a gambling business for a long time, initially, there were still many people who liked to gamble on stones, many people came to play with curiosity, but after opening more, people understood that the chance of opening a good stone was actually very low, so many people stopped playing.
Although the shop had many other businesses, he could not help but feel a bit depressed when he saw the pile of stones left behind that no one was interested in anymore.
Just at this time, two young men who looked like a couple walked into the shop.
“Boss, we’ve come to gamble on the stones, the stones are there, right?”
The pretty girl shouted just as she entered the room.
