Chapter 101: Joking
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
Xue Sheng was stunned. Why is it Lu Chao again? That name must be really common.
He did not think much of it. After all, how could the person that Elder Gao had his eyes on be working in a small provision store? Then again, this Lu Chao seemed to be around 25 or 26 years old. His age did match.
After Xiang Huai shouted, Lu Chao realized what his boss meant. They had a customer and wanted Lu Chao to chase him away.
During this period of time that they’d been in their provision store, there was naturally a reason why they did not sell a single item. Firstly, the location was remote and there were indeed few people nearby. Secondly, Lu Chao was always on hand to chase them away.
After all, no one was allowed in this provision store.
Lu Chao casually stuffed the bun into his mouth, stood up, walked to the door, and mumbled, “If you’re a little too dumb to notice, our store is temporarily closed for business.”
After saying that, he lifted the curtain for Xue Sheng and planned to return to the breakfast table after he’d left.
Today’s soup dumplings were especially delicious but he’d get to them late. He wondered if Boss and the young lady would not leave any for him.
Hearing this, Xue Sheng: “…”
How can a business like this exist? Is it because they didn’t open this store to make a profit? No wonder they opened a provision store here at such a young age. They’re looking to retire and don’t have any motivation to work hard at all.
He himself had made it to where he was today through his own effort. He despised lazy people the most, so he did not have a good impression of Lu Chao.
But… he wouldn’t happen to be Xixi’s boyfriend, right?
Because then, no matter how much he disliked him, he had to try to accept the relationship.
Well, at least this child had a smile on his face—he looked rather friendly. Meanwhile, the man in black with his back facing him and with his straight sitting posture looked like he was “the most superior” sort. One look and one could tell that he was not to be trifled with. He gave off a gloomy feeling. When the two of them were compared, this child seemed much easier to get along with.
Moreover, at least he knew how to stand up to welcome guests. He was much more hardworking than that man in black!
After comforting himself thus, Xue Sheng found Lu Chao to be more pleasing to the eye. He coughed and said, “I’m not here to buy anything.”
Lu Chao was surprised. Just as he was about to speak, he saw Xue Xi slowly turning around. When she saw Xue Sheng, she was stunned. “…Dad?”
That single word made Xiang Huai’s body tighten.
He slowly turned around… and saw an elegant middle-aged man standing there, smiling kindly at Lu Chao?
He raised his eyebrows.
Xue Xi had already stood up and walked over. “Why are you here?”
Xue Sheng retracted his gaze and smiled. “You forgot your vocabulary book in the car.”
Xue Xi suddenly understood. “Oh.”
She took the book and looked at Xue Sheng.
Xue Sheng smiled and said, “Aren’t you going to introduce me?”
Xue Xi then realized that Lu Chao was right beside her. She introduced him first. “This is Canine Teeth.”
By the time she finished speaking, Xiang Huai had already rushed to her side. He took the initiative to extend his hand and said to Xue Sheng, “h.e.l.lo, Uncle. I’m Xiang Huai.”
Xue Sheng nodded coldly at him, then turned to look at Lu Chao and said, “Young lad, do your best.”
The baffled Lu Chao: “?”
After speaking, Xue Sheng turned to look at Xiang Huai. When he saw his face clearly, he was a little surprised. This person was really good-looking, but it was a pity that he seemed a little too cold and unfeeling, and he didn’t look like he spoke much.
Xixi had taken the initiative to introduce Lu Chao and even called him Canine Teeth. She looked very sweet, so Lu Chao must be her boyfriend.
Xue Sheng frowned.
He did not originally come from a wealthy family, so he did not care too much about the man’s family background. As long as he could improve himself, it would be fine. If Xixi had chosen Lu Chao, then he would pull Lu Chao along, he’d decided. Otherwise, his daughter would be the one suffering in the future.
At this thought, Xue Sheng looked at Lu Chao. “Let’s add each other on WeChat.”
Lu Chao, who had already felt a chill on his neck: “?”

He hurriedly pushed Xiang Huai. “I don’t have WeChat. Please add my boss!”
Sob, Sister Xi, you’re harming me!
Xiang Huai was filled with jealousy as he looked at Xue Xi. “Little kid, where is my gift?”
Xue Xi paused. “I forgot about you.”
All of a sudden, Xiang Huai felt a sense of disappointment. A strong sense of powerlessness surged in his heart, and he felt as though he was in an ice cellar.
He had been dating this kid for two months, and after she had received a scholarship, she actually bought gifts for Lu Chao and did not buy any for her boyfriend?
Little children are really a piece of thousand-year-old ice. They can’t be made warm no matter how hard one tries.
Just as he was thinking this, the girl’s lips curled up and she suddenly said, “I was just teasing you.”
She then took out another gift box from her bag. “This is for you.”
Xiang Huai was stunned as he stared at Xue Xi.
Looking at the gift box in her hand, he felt as though a spring breeze had arrived. All the coldness instantly vanished.
And what made him even happier than receiving a gift was that the little kid actually joked with him.
The corners of his lips curled up into a bright smile, as though he wanted to light up the slightly dark provision store.
After Xue Xi left, Xiang Huai opened the gift box first. Inside was a black fountain pen. He picked it up and circled it before smiling. “This fountain pen is really nice.”
Immediately, Lu Chao saw Xiang Huai looking at his gift. He opened it in fear and muttered in his heart, Don’t be better than Boss’s gift. Don’t be better than Boss’s…
Then, he saw an exquisite phone casing.
This phone casing was from a big brand and had probably cost nearly a thousand yuan. It was even more expensive than his fountain pen.
He was doomed. He was going to die!
