Di Fuyi slowly surveyed him with an inquisitive look, "If you do not have enough silver, you could mortgage the jade at your waist to pay for the food."
The young man turned completely pale. The jade at his waist was the most valuable possession he owned. It was a family possession that had been handed down for many generations, and it was worth a thousand pieces of gold. He did not expect the child to have such a sharp eye that he was able to recognize the true value of the jade.
Once again, the young man smiled forcefully, "Little man, are you trying to make fun of me? You will not be able to finish so many dishes. The food will only go to waste…"
Di Fuyi answered with an adorable smile, "The food will not be wasted as the dishes are not only for the both of us. The dishes are for our ride that is now waiting outside."
The man did not know what to say. His handsome face started to flush with anger, "How can your pet finish all this good food? You are obviously making it difficult for me. If I was not treating you today, would you order the same dishes for it?"
With his face propped on his hands, Di Fuyi looked at him, "My ride is different from the usual rides and so what it eats must also be different from what others eat. Not only does it like good food, but it also fancies wine. I have not even ordered our drinks yet…" He then instructed the waiter, "I would like to have 20 pounds of high-quality Shaoxing wine and another 30 pounds of highly graded bamboo wine. The young man will pay for it."
The young man's face was livid with anger. The bill would cost more than 1,000 silvers after the cost of the wine had been taken into consideration with the food.
Scornfully, the young man sneered, "It is so rare for a ride to drink wine. You seem like you are trying to provoke me on purpose. How can I fall for your trick? I repeat, would you order the same dishes if you were to pay for the food yourself?"
Di Fuyi answered calmly, "These are all considered ordinary food and drinks. It seems a little ungenerous to it for having to endure the food. It usually has better food and drinks. I can only tolerate with a hash of food for it, now that we are traveling. I also do not have the heart to order too much as it is your treat."
He then raised his hand and threw a bag of money onto the table. Some gold ingots and big round pearls rolled out of the bag. He continued to tell the waiter, "I would like to double the amount of the food that I have just ordered. Will this be enough to pay for all of it?"
The waiter was completely delighted and replied in a beaming countenance, "Enough! Enough! It will do!" Every gold ingot was worth two hundred silvers. The pearls were the Southern Pearls, with each pearl carrying the value of a hundred gold. The value of the items altogether would cost more than two thousand silvers. The young man could not argue any further and left with a dejected expression.
Gu Xijiu could not hold back her amus.e.m.e.nt, "Your idea was brilliant. I think no one would dare to treat us dinner anymore." The little man was very generous for using his money to tear others down. He had even managed to keep her away from unwanted encounters.
Di Fuyi swirled the teacup in his hand, "How could he possibly treat someone like you for dinner?"
He only wanted to have a quiet meal with Gu Xijiu without any interruption from other outsiders.
Suddenly, they heard a knocking sound coming from above them, and a clear voice could be heard coming from upstairs, "The little man is right. How could a man like him treat Miss Gu for dinner?"
Gu Xijiu was stunned. She raised her head and was immediately surprised, "The eighth… Mr. Che!"
Standing high above was a young man wearing a white robe. He had an exquisite appearance and possessed a refine and admirable charisma in his behavior. He was the eighth prince of the Feixing Kingdom, Rong Che.
Gu Xijiu had wanted to address him as the eighth prince, but she changed her mind when she saw that he was not wearing his royal costume. He seemed like he was traveling incognito.
Rong Che smiled at Gu Xijiu, "Xijiu, long time no see! Do I have the pleasure to invite you to join us for dinner?"
