Soon, the lady approached him from the washroom and told him that there was no one in there. Luo Zheng was obviously surprised. He took a look at the baby in his backpack and saw his big, bright eyes looking straight back at him.
“Where did your mother go? Did she get into any trouble?”
The baby ignored him and looked away.
Luo Zheng was not expecting the baby to understand. After circling the place helplessly for a while, he decided to return to the restaurant, in case she was already waiting for him at the table. He thus returned to the restaurant, hoping to see her there. However, he noticed that the atmosphere was different as soon as he stepped into the restaurant.
All the guests were no longer talking loudly. Instead, they kneeled on the ground with their heads down, all facing the same direction. Intuitively, Luo Zheng looked towards the same direction and was immediately shocked. Surprisingly, there was a lady in white in the restaurant, accompanied by four servants. They were walking upstairs.
Judging from the back of the lady in white, she seemed like the young princess. He could not believe that someone as noble as the princess would visit the restaurant. It finally explained the shocked expression on everyone’s face.
The lady in white turned around and saw Luo Zheng, who was now standing by the door. More accurately speaking, it was the Silver Wolf that had caught her attention. From the look in her watery eyes, she seemed interested.
She was looking at Luo Zheng sternly to examine him. The unnecessary attention from a princess made his skin creep. For a moment, he did not know what to do or where to go. The lady’s face was still covered under a thin veil, so there was no way he could study her expression. Her floral scent had filled the entire hall, so all of them were also intoxicated.
She then turned around and murmured something to her closest servant. The servant gave her a firm nod before landing in front of Luo Zheng right away and requested, “Is this Silver Wolf for sale?”
Luo Zheng was still caught in disbelief. “Ah?” He was obviously confused.
The servant continued, “You are a visiting businessman from the outside world, aren’t you? The princess is interested in the Silver Wolf; so, you can make a deal with the princess right now. How much is your offer?”
Luo Zheng answered, “About the Silver Wolf, it is actually not mine. It belongs to my friend.”
“Where is your friend?”
“She asked me to take care of the baby and the wolf while she was away, and she has yet to return.”
“Is she going to sell the Silver Wolf or not?”
With a nod, Luo Zheng sounded determined as he replied, “Yes! However, the price that she offered was rather high.”
“How many devil coins? It cannot be 10,000, can it?” The servant was displeased.
Sweat rolled down his forehead as he continued to converse, “It is not 10,000. She asked for 100,000 devil coins. I think that you should discuss it further when my friend returns.”
The price obviously came as a surprise to everyone in the restaurant. They all looked at him in disbelief.
The servant frowned as soon as she heard the offer. “The price…”
“100,000 it is, then. I am taking the offer!” The young princess interrupted with a firm confirmation.
Certainly, everyone in the hall went wild! Luo Zheng’s jaw dropped in utter surprise. Troubled, he did not know whether to go ahead with the business or not. “The master of this creature is not here.”
“Since you are well informed about the price, you can sell it now and give her the money later. Are you really asking for the princess to wait for you here?” The servant was irritated. “You should know that hardly anyone can afford this price. Once the chance passes, it is gone for good.”
The servant was right. He should not make the princess wait. Determined, Luo Zheng took the deal on Gu Xijiu’s behalf. Everyone was delighted at the deal, except for the Silver Wolf. It went into a panic.
