Chapter 29 – Chat with the oiran about life

“Damn it!”

“A country bumpkin like him dares to mock us!”

“Nouveau riche, get out of the capital city!”

“Fairy Qing Xuan, this person is extremely wicked, be careful!”

In the first-floor lobby, because of Li Ziye’s words, the atmosphere once again became heated. The young masters of the prestigious families couldn’t wait to get up and kill this nouveau riche from Yuzhou City.


Li Ziye replied with an extremely arrogant and disdainful smile, then turned around and walked upstairs.

In the first-floor lobby, everyone gritted their teeth in anger, but they didn’t want to lose their grace in front of Fairy Qing Xuan, so they refrained from taking action.

On the second floor, Li Ziye walked over, directly lifted the bead curtain, and entered the private room.

Their gazes met, and Yu Qingxuan looked at the young man in front of her. A hint of nervousness rose in her usually calm heart.

She had been searching for the owner of the pipa score for a long time, and she didn’t expect to find him here.

“Ten Sided Ambush” is a pipa score, not a qin score. Only the owner of the score would know this because she had modified it to be played on the guqin. So, even those who understood music theory for many years couldn’t tell.

Inside the private room, the atmosphere was very quiet. Yu Qingxuan’s gaze revealed her nervousness.

However, Li Ziye wasn’t very interested in the woman in front of him.

He came here to find Second Brother.

If it weren’t for this woman calling him out in front of so many people, he wouldn’t have come up.

“Hey, little girl, what do you want from this young master?”

Li Ziye didn’t want to have too much entanglement with the woman in front of him. With a smirk on his face, he revealed the qualities of a playboy and asked.

Yu Qingxuan was taken aback but quickly regained her composure. She bowed gracefully and said, “I apologize for inviting Young Master Li up here. Please forgive me.”

“No need to apologize.”

Li Ziye said arrogantly, “What’s the matter? Speak.”

Yu Qingxuan, despite feeling uncomfortable with the young man’s attitude, maintained a calm demeanor and said softly, “Young Master Li, may I ask how you knew that the piece I played earlier was a pipa score and not a qin score?”

“Just a guess.”

Li Ziye grinned.

Could he say that he had memorized the score of “Ten Sided Ambush”?

Of course not!

He had already stood out so much that some mentally unstable people had started to suspect that he was the one who invented those peculiar things in the Li Family. If it was confirmed that this score also came from him, he would truly be speechless.

It would be best not to reveal his identity as the legitimate son.

He understood the saying that the taller the tree, the stronger the wind.

“Young Master, Qing Xuan didn’t mean any harm. She just wanted to find the owner of this pipa score and personally express her gratitude,” Yu Qingxuan said earnestly.

“Then you’ve got the wrong person. This young master doesn’t understand music theory at all.”

Li Ziye smirked, “But this young master understands life very well. Little girl, the night is long and sleepless. Do you want to chat about life together?”

Yu Qingxuan frowned and looked at the young man in front of her, trying to see something from his face.

However, she was disappointed.

Li Ziye’s face revealed nothing but a smirk.

“Young Master Li.”

Yu Qingxuan gently clenched her hands, suppressing her discomfort, and said, “Please behave yourself. Qing Xuan is not the kind of person you imagine.”

“What a pity!”

Li Ziye looked up and down at the woman in front of him and couldn’t help but admit that she was quite attractive.

Feeling invaded by his gaze, Yu Qingxuan became even more uncomfortable. She said, “Young Master Li, it’s getting late. It’s better for you to leave.”

“Go back? No way.”

Li Ziye immediately shook his head and said with a strange smile, “It hasn’t even been fifteen minutes yet. It’s too soon. I can’t leave so quickly. It would be embarrassing.”

Whether it was fast or not, the main issue was that there were too many people on the first floor, and if he went out like this, those guys would definitely attack him.

He had to let Little Red Riding Hood block the angry crowd for him.

Seeing the rascal-like appearance of Li Ziye, Yu Qingxuan’s impression of him worsened. She suppressed her anger and said, “If Young Master Li doesn’t leave, then Qing Xuan will.”


Li Ziye saw her reaction, put down his teacup, and shouted.

Yu Qingxuan trembled, looking at the person in front of her with anger and disbelief in her almond-shaped eyes.

How could this person be so shameless?

“Sit down and let’s talk.”

Li Ziye grinned, “Otherwise, I’ll keep shouting.”

Yu Qingxuan’s body trembled, and after a long time, she reluctantly suppressed her anger, put down the guqin, and sat down.

Li Ziye smiled and didn’t say anything. He drank his tea and passed the time.

He planned to wait until the people downstairs became impatient and left before going out.

He just didn’t know if he still had a chance to see Second Brother.

Tonight’s plan had been somewhat disrupted. He didn’t expect to be disturbed by this woman.

Li Ziye remained silent, and the atmosphere became quiet again. Yu Qingxuan sat there, her expression changing several times.She couldn’t imagine that the Third Young Master of the Li Family would be such a shameless person.

If that’s the case, then the qin score in front of her must not have been written by the person in front of her. She believed that the person who could write such a stunning qin score must not be an ordinary person.

As time passed, no one in the private room spoke, and the atmosphere became more and more awkward.

On the table, Li Ziye had finished drinking the pot of tea, but not much time had passed. There were still many people on the first floor.

Unexpectedly, it was already very late outside, but the young masters and ladies on the first floor were still waiting in the lobby with red eyes and gritted teeth.

They were waiting for the Li Family’s young master to come out, and then they would skin him alive and tear him apart!

On the second floor, Li Ziye clearly felt the resentment from the first floor, so he naturally couldn’t go out. Seeing that the tea on the table was finished, he looked at the woman in front of him and grinned, “Is there any more tea?”


Yu Qingxuan gritted her silver teeth and replied.

“Little girl.”

Li Ziye opened his mouth, about to say something else, but he felt the killing intent in the woman’s eyes in front of him, so he immediately changed his address and said, “Miss Yu, right? Look, you called me up here and made me the target of everyone’s criticism. You should take some responsibility, shouldn’t you?”

“What does Young Master Li want?”

Yu Qingxuan could hardly suppress her anger and said.


Li Ziye thought for a moment and said, “Do you have any Potent Medicine?”


Yu Qingxuan gritted her teeth and replied.

“What about the Ten Thousand Years Cold Iron?”

Li Ziye continued to ask.


Yu Qingxuan angrily replied.

“Why don’t you have anything?”

Li Ziye said disappointedly.

Upon hearing this, Yu Qingxuan’s chest heaved up and down, her silver teeth clenched tightly, and the last trace of her sanity was about to disappear.

“Alright, give me ten thousand Potent Medicines, and I’ll forgive you!”

Li Ziye said casually.


Finally, unable to bear it any longer, Yu Qingxuan slapped the table and stood up, her body trembling violently, and said, “You, you!”

Li Ziye was startled and said, “Why are you so angry? If you don’t agree, you can negotiate. Isn’t doing business about making outrageous demands and bargaining? Why get so angry?”

Yu Qingxuan closed her eyes, took a few deep breaths, and said, “Young Master Li, goodbye, we may never meet again!”

After speaking, Yu Qingxuan picked up the guqin beside her and turned to leave through the door behind the box.

“Fairy, don’t go, hey! Hey, have some manners.”

Li Ziye shouted twice, then shook his head helplessly.

Forget it, let her go.

“What’s that? Fairy Qingxuan’s carriage! Fairy Qingxuan has left!”

At this moment, someone in the lobby on the first floor saw Yu Qingxuan’s carriage leaving from the front of the Shihua Garden and exclaimed.

“Fairy Qingxuan!”

Suddenly, in the lobby on the first floor, everyone chased after her, their expressions full of disappointment.

“Old Bai! Let’s go!”

Seizing the rare opportunity, Li Ziye immediately went downstairs and grabbed Bai Wangyu, and they mixed into the chaos and left the Shihua Garden.

“Li Ziye!”

In the chaos, someone saw the two of them and angrily shouted, “Don’t let him escape, everyone, catch him!”

As soon as the words fell, everyone noticed the two of them and crazily chased after them, with foul language ringing in their ears.

Li Ziye was not one to suffer losses, so while running, he turned around and cursed at the group of people.

Then, the large group of people chasing after them became even more crazy, like they had taken chicken blood, desperately chasing after them.

The Xiangshui River, which had already quieted down, suddenly became extremely lively.

As the night grew darker, Li Ziye dragged Bai Wangyu through one street after another. Behind them, fewer and fewer people were able to keep up.

“A bunch of country bumpkins, trying to catch up with me, don’t they know their own strength?”

After passing through two more streets, Li Ziye saw that no one was following behind, so he couldn’t help but stop and bend over, gasping for breath.

So tired!

“Brother Li.”

Beside him, Bai Wangyu also took a deep breath, with lingering fear in his heart, and said, “We shouldn’t go to such places in the future.”

“It was an accident.”

Li Ziye touched his nose and said awkwardly, “I didn’t expect that the music score I casually wrote back then would end up in Yu Qingxuan’s hands.”Li Qingzhi nodded, not dwelling on the topic, and changed the subject, “You’re looking for me because you want to ask about the Yin family, right?”


Upon hearing this, Li Ziye became serious and said, “Second Brother, is everything going smoothly with Yin Kuang?”

“The person has been arranged into the Yin family.”

Li Qingzhi calmly said, “However, the thing you want is in the Yin family’s treasure house. With his current status and ability, it’s hard to get it.”

“If we could also enter the Yin family, we could cooperate from within and outside, and the possibility of success would be much greater.” Li Ziye said in a deep voice.

Li Qingzhi thought for a moment and said, “To enter the Yin family, there is a way.”

“Second Brother has a way?” Li Ziye asked in surprise.

“In a few days, it will be the sixtieth birthday of the old master of the Yin family. At that time, Yu Qingxuan will go to perform.”

Li Qingzhi calmly said, “If you want to enter the Yin family, you can ask Yu Qingxuan for help.”

“Cough, cough!”

Upon hearing this, Li Ziye was suddenly choked by his own saliva and started coughing violently.

Why didn’t you say it earlier!

He had already offended Yu Qingxuan thoroughly last night. Let alone asking for help, Yu Qingxuan probably doesn’t even want to see him now!
