Lin Chuchu was embarrassed. “He said he wants to take me on a date tonight…”
“Isn’t this good news? Since he’s wealthy, you should thank your lucky stars that he invited you out on a date, so how is that a request?” Wu Min smiled. “If everything goes well, you might even get yourself a boyfriend. I don’t see anything bad about it.”
Lin Chuchu was a little unhappy, but did not say anything further.
On the other hand, Lin Cheng’s face looked dark and he hung his head low.
He ran an eatery near the university, so how could he not know what these students were thinking? There was no such thing as a free meal in this society; he was afraid that the person who asked his daughter out on a date had dirty thoughts in mind.
“Uncle Lin, I have already made a call. This is nothing but a small matter, and somebody will come and resolve it soon.” At the moment, Tang Yin happened to return to the eatery.
“Really?” Lin Cheng looked delighted.
“Based on your capabilities? Hah!” Wu Min sneered. “You are no use to us now that Chuchu has already found someone to settle this matter. We do not need your help at all! Why don’t you take a look in the mirror before you start tooting your own horn?”
Tang Yin was stunned, but he did not rebut her. However, his disgust for her went up a notch.
Lin Chuchu stood up and returned to her cold self as well. “Tang Yin, go out and sweep the floors. And don’t you tell anybody about this, otherwise we’ll deduct half of your month’s salary!”
When Tang Yin heard this, he was so pissed that he laughed indignantly. However, he decided not to stoop to her level and turned to walk outside.
Since they were able to resolve the issue, Lin Chuchu looked chirpier compared to her depressed, crying self just now.
Tang Yin knew that this was her nature. It was hard for a person to change their character unless they suffered some losses. Hence, the incident today had somewhat taught her a lesson.
After he was done cleaning outside, Tang Yin sat in front of the eatery’s entrance.
Business was quite slow in the eatery after lunch hour, so Tang Yin started cleaning up the area after having his lunch.
At that moment, a guy walked in from afar. He was as fat as a pig; the buttons on his short-sleeved shirt were about to burst due to his huge belly. With a huge gold chain around his neck, as well as a pair of dark circles under his eyes, it was obvious that he had partied all night.
“Where is Lin Chuchu? Come out now…”
Tang Yin stood up and just as he was about to say something, the guy looked at Tang Yin and his mouth curled into a disdainful smile. “Oh my… If it isn’t the almighty guy who cleared out the entire Orchid Restaurant?”
Tang Yin took a closer look at him. What a coincidence to bump into a familiar face here!
This person was with Zhang Qiang yesterday night when they were chased out from the Orchid Restaurant. Never did Tang Yin expect him to turn up here at all.
“It seems that you have degraded to working as a staff in a small eatery. Where on earth is your arrogance from yesterday?”
Tang Yin smirked as he stood up, but just when he was about to say something, Lin Chuchu ran out from the eatery and shouted delightedly, “Liang, why are you here at the moment?”
Liang Zicheng looked at Lin Chuchu in a lecherous way. Then, he withdrew his gaze and said in a carefree manner, “I was afraid that I’d disrupt your business later at night, so I came earlier to see you. Is this person working as a staff in your eatery?”
“Oh, you mean him?” Lin Chuchu squinted at Tang Yin. “He is only a poor loser, so forget about him. Let’s go in and have a chat then.”
“What do you mean forget about him?” Liang Zicheng snickered as he strutted into the cafe while saying, “There is already a big shot here, I don’t see why you had to look for me. Don’t you know that this brat here was acting all high and mighty in the Orchid Restaurant yesterday night? Did you know that he actually chased me out of the restaurant? Why didn’t you ask him for help since he is such a powerful person?”
Lin Chuchu was stunned, looking slightly embarrassed as she did not expect Tang Yin to be that powerful. He actually had the authority to chase Liang out of the Orchid Restaurant? Liang’s family is well-known for being wealthy businessmen in Wuhan and Tang Yin actually had the guts to go against him?
Is Tang Yin really that capable?
“Oh… I remember now. Tang Yin said that he had picked up a rich person’s wallet. Then, that guy actually gave him a VIP card and a few ten thousand as a reward. Otherwise, do you think that he would have that kind of capabilities?” said Liang Zicheng in a meaningful manner.
Lin Chuchu’s expression changed as she muttered to herself, “So, that was what happened. And here I thought that he was somewhat capable.”
“Liang, take a seat then. You don’t need to stoop down to his level.” Wu Min smiled as she walked up to him and poured him a cup of tea.
Lin Chuchu smirked as she turned her head. “That’s right, Liang, don’t bother about him. He is merely a stupid staff, so how capable could he be? By the way, I need to ask you for a favor to resolve this matter today, otherwise it would be really difficult for me to handle it myself.”
“That’s right, we still need your help!” Wu Min chimed in as she smiled.
“Yes, yes…” Lin Chuchu’s smile was like a blooming flower as she tugged at Liang Zicheng’s arm.
Liang Zicheng smiled as he turned his head to look at Tang Yin with interest. “Chuchu, it’s not that I don’t want to help you, but I just feel uncomfortable looking at your staff here…”
Lin Chuchu was stunned, but she immediately regained her composure, put on a cold face and stood up. Then, she looked at Tang Yin and said, “Tang Yin, from today onward, you are no longer a service staff at our cafe. You can go wherever you want to go now, and stop being an eyesore here.”
Though Tang Yin was taken aback, a slight smile started forming at the corner of his mouth.
He didn’t want to work here anymore anyway. Unexpectedly, however, she was the one who requested him to leave first. As long as he could leave, this was considered good news to him.
“About the paycheck…” Tang Yin started to enquire further because they still owed him half a month’s worth of salary after all.
“Aren’t you embarrassed to still ask for your salary? If you had reported the incident earlier today, we wouldn’t be in this mess now!” Wu Min rolled her eyes at him and sneered.
Lin Chuchu looked at him coldly. “That’s right. Besides, since you can chase Liang out of the Orchid Restaurant, I guess you wouldn’t care about a meager salary like this, right? Get lost quickly! You make me sick!”
Tang Yin raised his eyebrows as he looked at her coldly.
Lin Cheng quickly approached them and dragged Tang Yin out of the place. “Tang Yin, you should go back first. I’ll think of a way to give you your salary; I’d never let you work for free. In regards to today’s incident, I’ll remember your kindness for helping me out today.”
Tang Yin was initially pissed. However, his anger died down a lot in that instant as he knew that Lin Cheng was thrown into a difficult situation. Since Lin Cheng had put it this way, there was nothing Tang Yin could do about it. He could only nod his head slightly and said, “Uncle Lin, you should be careful. If anything happens, you can give me a call…”
“Okay!” Lin Cheng bowed down and nodded his head vigorously.
Tang Yin sighed as he knew that his words had fallen on deaf ears. However, he couldn’t blame Lin Cheng because he was a useless, good-for-nothing loser in other people’s eyes after all.
The world functioned in a way where people judged others through colored lenses.
If one did not have the money or capabilities, they deserved to be cast aside.
Tang Yin took off his apron as he turned around and walked out of the eatery. On the other hand, Liang Zicheng’s laughter could be heard from inside. “And here I thought that you were a powerful person. Why didn’t you clear out the place today then? Hmph, I’ll post this on WeChat to let everybody know that you are merely a stupid cafe worker. I’ll also tell your ex-girlfriend…”
