After eating and drinking, Tong Lele patted his tummy and burped.
Mo Lisi also had a satisfied look on his face.
He had always seen all sorts of snacks on culinary shows and wanted to try them out.
Unfortunately, Mo Qijue was very strict about his diet, and he had never let him eat food from outside the castle.
“Our two little guests, it’s a total of 30,800 yuan. Since you’re both so cute, I’ll give you a discount, you just need to pay 30,000 yuan.” The boss walked over and informed Tong Lele and Mo Lisi.
Mo Lisi glanced at Tong Lele.
Tong Lele glanced back at Mo Lisi.
Both of them sat there without moving.
Staring at each other.
“Mo Lisi, pay up,” said Tong Lele and gestured at Mo Lisi with his chin.
Mo Lisi raised his eyebrow and asked, “Didn’t you say you were going to treat me to golden fishballs?”
“Yeah, I did. I said I was going to treat you, but I never said I was going to be the one paying. I treated you to fishballs, shouldn’t you pay since I invited you?” Tong Lele leaned back and folded his arms behind his head, raising an eyebrow at Mo Lisi.
“So, who will be the one paying?” The boss looked at the two children pushing the responsibility on each other, and cold sweat dripped down his face.
They weren’t thinking of eating without paying, right?
Mo Lisi turned his face to the side and whispered in Tong Lele’s ear, “I’m not used to bringing money when I go out… and it’s not time for Grandpa Feng to fetch me yet.”
“You say that like you leave the castle often.” Tong Lele rolled his eyes at Mo Lisi.
“That’s right, you know I don’t have money, and yet you’re still asking me to pay the bill,” said Mo Lisi helplessly.
Tong Lele saw the boss, who was sweating profusely, the moment he looked up, and he said unhappily, “Uncle, what’s with your expression? You think we’re going to eat without paying?”
“No… the thought never crossed my mind…” said the boss, waving his hand.
Those who studied in the Mo City International Primary School had to pay up to 680,000 yuan in school fees for each semester, so a bit of money was nothing to these children.
“We didn’t bring any money, we won’t be paying,” said Mo Lisi, indifferent.
“… you’re being so honest?” The boss smiled bitterly. “I’ll have to report this to the school then!”
“Wait!” Tong Lele said quickly when he saw the boss pick up the phone.
“You have money to pay the bill?” The boss stopped in his tracks.
“No.” Tong Lele shook his head.
“Then why did you stop me?” The boss angrily picked up his cell phone.
“Boss, I suspect that you’re running an illegal business!” Tong Lele said breezily when the boss started to dial.
“A… a black shop?” The boss was shocked by Tong Lele’s words.
“We are consumers, and we have to ask for money from our parents. We only ordered a few fishballs and some bubble tea, and yet you want to charge us 30,000 yuan… that’s so expensive! The food stalls elsewhere charge at most 100 yuan per portion, but your prices are exorbitant… that’s so shady! How would a child have so much money on them?”
Tong Lele continued with his calculations, “It’s not easy for our parents to send us to this aristocratic school, and you still want to scam us! You’re too sinister!”
“Yeah, so sinister!” Mo Lisi agreed.
“We’re running a business here, and we use golden flour… naturally, we’d sell our fishballs at a higher price!” Being a boss was not easy.
‘Are elementary school kids becoming smarter?’
‘Why do they know everything?’
And his rent was expensive too! 100,000 yuan per month in rental fees… how could he charge any less?
“And, you two little brats, you didn’t bring money and expect to eat without paying, and yet you still dare to accuse me of running an illegal business! If you don’t have money, then don’t come and eat fishballs here!”
They had even finished eating all the fish balls he had made today!
Eating everything before revealing that they weren’t going to pay?!
Tong Lele placed his hands on his hips and said loftily, “Why are you so agitated? We’re just speculating.”
“Are you guys trying to pass as rich kids? If you don’t have money, why would you be studying at this upper-class school? Coming here to study and eat, you guys were trying to trick me all along!” The boss also stood with arms akimbo, glaring at Tong Lele.
