Chapter 4: Gutang Bookstore (2)
Since he wanted to inquire about something, Tang Tianyuan thought he should at least make a purchase.
So without looking at the paper, he swiped the first half of the page and said, "Let's get a copy of each of these."
With such a refreshing customer, the shop assistant cheerfully went to look for the books.
The weird girl went to the corner to clean her hands.
And she was now standing in front of the counter, eating a small plate of peanuts.
Her way of eating was not proper either: she was throwing the peanuts into the air and catching them with her mouth.
He was unsure how long she had practiced this stunt, but every throw was accurate.

Tang Tianyuan was dumbfounded.
Regardless of whether the girl's brain was working or not, this skill was definitely exceptional.
Another assistant brought a cup of herbal tea, and Tang Tian thanked him and said, "I want to ask you about someone."
"Gongzi, please speak."
"Do you know where Miao Miao Sheng is"
"This..." The assistant was a little embarrassed.
Tang Tianyuan very politely took out a piece of silver for him.
The shop attendant didn't accept the money, but looked at the girl at the counter, "Sister Lingyin, this gongzi wants to find Miao Miaosheng, do...do you know where Miao Miaosheng is right now"
The girl called Lingyin wiped her mouth with a handkerchief, drank a big mouthful of sour plum soup, and asked Tang Tianyuan, "Why are you looking for Miao Miaosheng" If you can read this, it means this chapter was stolen from puretl .com
I'm here to seek revenge...
Tang Tianyuan swallowed the truth back into his stomach, and said hypocritically, "I admire him very much, we are friends in spirit, who have never met.
Since I just so happened to travel to his homeland, I wanted to see him, and fulfill my wish." He really wanted to vomit.
"Oh, there are a lot of people who admire him.
I will definitely pass your words to him, so there is no need to meet him."
Tang Tianyuan took out a piece of gold.
Lingyin swallowed her saliva, but finally shook her head, "Just say I hadn’t seen the money.
Safe trip out, I will not see you out."
Since she was in such a hurry to kick him out, Tang Tianyuan was unconvinced, "I haven't got my books yet."
As he was talking, the shop assistant had already found all the books he wanted, and held them on the counter to name them one by one, "A picture album ; a copy of ; one copy of ..."
"Don't, don't read anymore..." Tang Tianyuan's righteous arrogance soon shriveled up.
He tried to stop him in a low voice in embarrassment.
Lingyin covered her lips and let out a chuckle, "sex fiend."
Tang Tianyuan felt even more embarrassed, his face turned hot.
He could no longer explain himself.
Who would have thought that at least half of the new books in this bookstore were pornography What kind of bookstore was this...
The guy packed the books and handed them to him.
Tang Tianyuan put down the money, but didn't pick up the books, "You guys keep it."
Lingyin laughed again, "A lecher with a heart but no guts."
"You...!" Tang Tianyuan frowned and snorted, "Your words and deeds are vulgar in mannar, this is unjust for a woman."
Lingyin smiled, "That’s the way I am.
What, are you going to bite me"
Tang Tianyuan was not good at quarreling, let alone dealing with such shameless people.
He didn't plan to argue with her, so he said goodbye and left.
As soon as he went out, he turned back and took away books on the counter.
He was already labeled a "sex fiend", but he shouldn’t allow another label of a "lecher with a heart but no guts" on himself.
Carrying a heavy pile of books, he stood in the shade of the ginkgo tree and looked back.
This bookstore seemed to use its only bit of elegance on the plaque, but the inside was a devil’s party; they really were one and the same with Miao Miao Sheng.
In the bookstore, Lingyin started eating her peanuts again.
The attendant asked strangely, "Sister Lingyin, don't you like that person just now" translat ed by pure tl.

Lingyin stopped, frowned, and shook her head.
She touched her chin and said, "To be honest, I felt uncomfortable when I saw him.
It felt as if it was bad luck to encounter him."
Another attendant leaned in and said, "But he's pretty handsome."
Lingyin pointed to her eyes, "It's not like you don't know, my eyes can't see far.
Any more past a meter are double images for me, what does it have to do with me if he was handsome or not."
The guy nodded and continued, "Sister Lingyin, what do you plan to write about now"
Lingyin looked at her right hand wrapped into a bear's paw, "I don't know, we’ll talk after my hand is healed...
Actually, I have a plan."
"What's the plan"
"You won't understand even if I explain it.
Don’t worry, when I make a fortune, I will share a part of the profits with you guys."
In the end, Tang Tianyuan returned to the inn with a pile of messy books.
It was there he saw the chief of the inner court, Sheng-gonggong, waiting for him.
Sheng gonggong was the eunuch from Qianqing Palace.
Tang Tianyuan couldn't understand why he appeared here.
He thought he had mistaken him for someone else, but Sheng-gonggong greeted him first.
Tang Tianyuan quietly placed the book in his hand behind him.
He chatted with Sheng gonggong uncomfortably for a while, and Eunuch Sheng explained the purpose of his visit.
Tang Tianyuan read the imperial decree carefully, and finally understood what his father meant by the so-called "practice and experience" that day.
He had realized that he was being kicked into the pit by his father and the emperor…
