After the Rebirth of the Unbeatable Queen - Chapter 59
After they were done with that matter, the three of them exited the royal property office. Once they had left, the staff finally started to calm down. “Oh my god! That was a Black Crystal Card! What a highly distinguished nobleman! No wonder! No wonder! I’m so glad I didn’t offend him. I must really thank Prince Chen for this! I must!”
All of this had happened with Darkguard watching from the side. Darkguard was best at concealing his presence, and his cultivation level was not any lower than Tealwood’s.
He returned to Prince Chen Manor and reported all that happened to Dongfang Haochen. “Young Master, that’s all.”
“Good. You are dismissed.” After hearing Darkguard’s report, Dongfang Haochen was even more excited about becoming neighbors with Qingcheng.
After walking out of the property office, Yan Xuan couldn’t help but blurt out, “When did the people working for the royal family become so friendly? That was so strange. And that staff’s attitude was too good to be true. That manor is so huge, but it only cost 5,000 gold coins? I simply can’t believe it…” Yan Xuan voiced his doubts.
Tealwood didn’t care about money, or rather, he wasn’t familiar with the concept of it. But after buying things over the past two days, he started to have a rough idea of how much things cost, and he thought that this price was strangely low, too.
But Qingcheng looked at them and said, “It doesn’t matter whether it’s weird or not, since there’s nothing wrong with the house, and there was nothing wrong with the process. As long as this house is ours, it’s fine. Since someone out there is willing to help us save money, we should be happy about it.” Of course, she knew that something was amiss, but was she scared? Ho ho, no matter if it were a human or a demon behind this, that person would eventually surface.
The two of them thought about it and agreed. It wasn’t a bad thing since someone helped them save so much money. They didn’t think about it anymore after that.
The three of them continued walking along the main street.
Qingcheng noticed that it was around lunchtime now, so they had the opportunity to try the delicious food along Liuxiang Street. She said, “Let’s go to Liuxiang Street to get something to eat first, and then we’ll find someone to clean up that manor. Little Xuan, go and find some construction workers to redo that place. I’ll give you some blueprints, and the workers can fix the place up accordingly.” She was going to renovate it in the style she liked. She faced too many restrictions in her previous life, so in this life, she was going to live the way she wanted. She was going to do whatever she wanted, as long as she was happy.
“Sure, Master! Don’t worry! I’ll go look for people today, and I’ll get reliable workers,” Yan Xuan replied happily.
“Good. Let’s go to Liuxiang Street. What’s good to eat around there?” The three of them walked and chatted at the same time, and they finally reached Liuxiang Street.
Liuxiang Street got its name from being Wei City’s very first Liuxiang District, a fancy name for a red-light district. Every single brothel in Wei City was along this street, but because of competition and some fights between the bosses of these brothels, some of them couldn’t stay open for business and eventually closed down.
Some of them turned into gambling dens, while others turned into theatres that targeted the scholarly and noble classes. A few of them also became restaurants.
In any case, this street started getting crowded from afternoon onwards, and it remained crowded even past midnight.
After listening to Yan Xuan’s introduction, it confirmed some of the ideas that Qingcheng had.
The three of them were now seated in a restaurant that was pretty crowded. A man dressed like a waiter from those times came walking over to them and smiled. “Welcome, welcome! What would you gentlemen like to have? We are a famous restaurant along this street, and every item we sell is delicious! Would you like to try some of our signature dishes?”
Qingcheng saw that the waiter was friendly, and the ambiance of the place was not bad, so it improved her impression of the restaurant immediately. She asked, “Signature dishes? Sure, we’ll have them all. If you’ve got good drinks, we’ll have them too. But… I don’t want any alcohol. Just some normal drinks will do.”
