Chapter 400: Bet
There were a few people arguing in the medicine store. There were even passersby who came to join in the fun.
“Although this last wife is still alive and can’t be compared to a dead person, this Master Xie spent money on the betrothal gift to marry her back then. It can be seen that when he had just married her, he must have been extremely sincere.”
“How can a betrothal with money be compared to a childhood friend? Master Xie was robbed of his village when he was only ten. He had been getting along with Ms. Peng for a few years!”
“It’s good to be from a humble family. I know a person who was a bandit from that place. He told me that when Ms. Lin was still around, Master Xie had a smile on his face all day long. His smile was even brighter than the wildflowers on the mountain!”
“If you dare, let’s make a bet! When we meet Master Xie, let him choose who he loves the most!”
“Let’s make a bet!”
Very soon, they had made a scene.
They even went to the gambling den directly to get someone to testify and place a bet on this matter.
It was lively and interesting, and it actually attracted quite a number of people to follow the trend. When the various large gambling dens saw that, they also followed the public’s request and set up a bet.
The gambling den was betting on the relationship between Master Xie and the three madams when they were newlyweds. Which one was the most important?!
The three ladies’ stories were written down so that the gamblers could understand it clearly.
As for how this bet would end…
For the sake of fairness, they had to judge it from several aspects.
Someone was preparing to rehearse a play for the three ladies. When Master Xie returned, they would enter the Xie Residence to perform. By then, they would have to see which one Master Xie would choose first. Naturally, they would place more importance on the one he chose first.
In addition, they were also going to invite Master Xie to a restaurant to drink and get him drunk. They wanted to invite Master Xie to reveal his true feelings. From that…
They would definitely be able to come up with a result after giving it some thoughts!
Within a short period of time, many people had already made arrangements.
Meanwhile, Xie Qiao did not know that her father had become a popular figure in the city despite him being out of the city.
At that moment, she secretly changed into Mo Chusheng’s clothes and makeup and went to the Fortune Pavilion.
Shopkeeper Chang had been waiting for her for a long time. When he saw her, he quickly said, “Boss, someone invited you to look at their feng shui yesterday. He asked me to ask you if you would accept the work.”
“Why not?” Xie Qiao asked.
She had told the shopkeeper earlier that she would accept this kind of work if she could.
She wanted to earn more money to buy medicine.
“But this person said that his family also invited other feng shui masters. There should be several of them, so…” Shopkeeper Chang was embarrassed.
People like masters were very dignified.
If they invited a master and then invited another one, the master would be upset.
Xie Qiao did not care about that, “No problem. If the person comes again, accept it. Have you decided when?”
“If you’re free, I’ll send the carriage to pick you up in the morning the day after tomorrow,” the shopkeeper said quickly.
The day after tomorrow?
School will start the day after tomorrow.
However, it was fine. She would take a leave of absence.
Earning money was more important.
In the afternoon, there were indeed servants who came over and gave a hundred taels of gold as the deposit. They were wealthy.
Xie Qiao had her spirit lifted even more now. She went to the backyard and fed more dried worms to Da Xiong. If there was a need, she would still ask Da Xiong for help.
It was too tiring for her to go alone.
On the other hand, the old lady really went back to her own house.
When Xie Mangshan and his wife came back from work, they were both angry and furious when they saw that their mother was half-dead.
“You’ve only stayed there for one night and this happened to you?! Xie Pinggang actually dared to treat an elder like you so harshly. I don’t think he can be an official anymore! I’ll find someone to reason with!”
This dynasty ruled the world with filial piety. He did not believe that Xie Pinggang would not behave himself if he used his mother’s matter to threaten him!
The old lady was angry and a little aggrieved, “I fell outside by myself! It’s no use looking for him!”
