“Mom, can you save my face in front of my friend?” Chen Ling complained.
Hearing this, the innkeeper was even angrier and said, “Look at you. You don’t look like a person. Do you want me to do you a favor?”
“Mom, if you say that again, I’m leaving,” Chen Ling said, gnashing her teeth.
“Well, you’d better go. If you go, don’t come back. I’ll see how you live outside,” the innkeeper said angrily. Since Chen Ling became an adult, she had made friends with a group of bad friends and dressed herself up as a neither human nor ghost. Every time she saw Chen Ling, the innkeeper was very angry. Especially when she brought her friends to the store, the innkeeper was even more unpleasant.
“Auntie, I’m not a bad person,” the boy said to the lady boss with a look of grievance on his face.
The lady boss looked at the boy.She didn’t know he was a bad guy or not, but his image didn’t look like that of a human.
“You can’t be a good person, but you have to make an iron circle around your nose. Are you going to be the Bull Demon King?” The lady boss said coldly.
Samuel, who was standing by the side, burst out laughing. The boy’s dressing was indeed different from ordinary people, and his nose ring made people feel dazzled. The description of the lady boss was really appropriate.
Hearing Samuel’s laughter, the boy’s eyes suddenly showed dissatisfaction. But in the shop, he did not dare to be presumptuous. Instead, Chen Ling felt that her friend was being laughed at. She walked to Samuel angrily.
Chen Ling slapped the table and said angrily, “What are you laughing at? It has nothing to do with you. You’d better behave yourself.”
Samuel raised his head and said with a smile, “Little Ling’er, I haven’t seen you for so many years, and you are so fierce to me. Aren’t you afraid that I won’t come next time?”
When Chen Ling saw Samuel clearly, she was stunned.
When she was on holiday, she used to help the customers with drinks. Samuel often came to the cafe, so they became familiar with each other. In recent years, Samuel had never been to the cafe, but Chen Ling had never forgotten him.
“Brother Samuel?” Chen Ling looked at Samuel in shock.
Samuel smiled helplessly and said, “You still don’t know what to say?”
Chen Ling didn’t care and said, “It makes sense. I can’t change it, and I don’t want to change it.”
As Chen Ling spoke, she directly sat beside Samuel. The two of them seemed to be very close. Only at this time would the lady boss look at Chen Ling with a softer gaze.
“Brother Samuel, where have you been all these years? Why didn’t you come to see me?” Chen Ling asked curiously.
“I have gone somewhere else and is now settling down in another place. It is very difficult for me to return to Swallow City. Didn’t I come to visit you this time around?” Samuel said with a smile.
At this time, the man released a strong hostility against Samuel. Even with his back to him, Samuel could feel the heat in his eyes.
He didn’t know if this guy was a bad guy, but from the dagger in his pocket, Samuel knew that he was not a good person.
How could a normal person carry a dagger with him?
“Another place? It would be difficult to see you again in the future.” Chen Ling wrinkled her nose. Her feelings for Samuel were not feelings between men and women, but more like brother and sister. When she was young, she hoped that Samuel would come to the shop every day. Over time, it became the motivation for Chen Ling to come to the shop to help. This was because Samuel would bring her some toys every time.
Of course, Chen Ling had grown up now. Although she did not need a toy, it was not easy to let go of a relationship that had lasted for so many years.
“If you want to play with me, I’ll send someone to pick you up,” Samuel said.
Chen Ling had heard the shopkeeper mention Samuel had come to the store for the first time. Hence, she subconsciously thought that he was a poor man’s child. Did he even have a subordinate now?
“Brother Samuel, you are very rich now?” Chen Ling raised her eyebrows and asked.
“Yes, I’m now a billionaire. There’s only a little distance between me and him.” Samuel stretched out his hand. A thin crack appeared between his thumb and index finger.
“Humph.” Chen Ling showed a look of disbelief and said, “If you can become the richest man, I will be the princess of the royal family. Do you believe it?”
“If you don’t dress like this, you will be a princess. However, these strange colors make you look unlike a princess,” Samuel said.
Chen Ling was very satisfied with her style, but Samuel’s words directly made her doubt herself.
“Brother Samuel, am I not good-looking?” Chen Ling asked doubtfully.
