Chapter 19: Unruly Eldest Daughter
Translator: / KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Lucas
Agarwood Restaurant, the best restaurant in Fresh Breeze Town.
Situated at the intersection between the Li, Chen, and Fang family marketplaces, it did not belong to any of the three families of Fresh Breeze Town.
Allegedly, it had a considerable background. It was established by a large merchant group from outside Fresh Breeze Town.
There were many people walking in and out of Agarwood Restaurant to have breakfast.
Anyone who could afford to eat in Agarwood Restaurant was someone who came from a well-off family; either someone rich or a noble.
When the couple walked into Agarwood Restaurant, they attracted the attention of the people who were walking in and out of the restaurant. Most of them were gazes of envy and admiration.
The gazes of envy fell upon the young girl, whereas the gazes of admiration were upon the youth.
"Are the two of you dining?"
The attendant standing at the door greeted them in a respectful voice with his head lowered.
"Yes, a booth on the second floor. Do you have any beside the windows left?
The youth nodded and said familiarly.
"Yes, this way please."
When the attendant heard what the youth said, he knew that they weren't first timers. He hurriedly took them to the second floor, which was much quieter than the first floor.
Of course, the price for eating in the second floor was double.
"Our luck isn't bad."
Seeing the last table beside the window, Duan Ling Tian's slightly knit his eyebrows.
As Duan Ling Tian brought the young girl over to the window's side, some of the people on the second floor had their gazes fixed upon Ke Er, attracted by her charm and good looks.
Three youths that were sitting beside another window not far away had gazes of greed when they looked at Ke Er.
"Ke Er, sit."
Duan Ling Tian took the violet short sword from Ke Er and placed it on the table, then, like a gentleman, he casually pulled out a chair for Ke Er to sit on.
"Thank you, Young Master."
The young girl's delicate and immature face blushed as she sat down.
Just when Duan Ling Tian was about to sit opposite of Ke Er, a sound of wind passed by his ears as a figure flashed by and then sat on his seat before him.
Duan Ling Tian frowned when he saw that immature young girl sitting on his seat.
The green-clothed young girl was around sixteen years old. Her appearance could not be considered to be exceedingly beautiful, but her slightly innocent face contained a hint of charm. Combined with her innocent temperament, they formed a conflicting combination.
A servant girl of ordinary appearance followed behind her and came to stand behind her.
"Miss Chen, I'm sorry, this young master has already taken this seat. Could you please choose a different seat?"
Said the attendant that brought Duan Ling Tian and Ke Er over. His face had a humble smile, meaning that he obviously recognized the green-clothed young girl.
"This miss has taken a liking to this seat. As a regular customer of Agarwood Restaurant, don't I even get this little special treatment?"
The green-clothed young girl raised her proud head, glancing at the attendant condescendingly.
"This miss doesn't like having strangers around when I'm eating."
She said indifferently as she gazed at Ke Er, who was sitting opposite of her. There was jealousy in her eyes.
"Young master, why don't you...."
The other attendant that was following the green-clothed young girl looked towards Duan Ling Tian, wanting him to change seats.
But when he noticed that Duan Ling Tian was paying no attention to him, he could only laugh bitterly and shut his mouth.
"Young master, why don't we change our seats?"
At this moment, Ke Er looked towards Duan Ling Tian.
She had noticed that this Miss Chen was of a respectable family with high status.
Although her appearance and disposition were inferior to Ke Er's, the aura she unintentionally emitted pressured Ke Er until she could not breathe properly.
Even though she had been following Duan Ling Tian for a long time, she had a sense of inferiority deep inside her heart due to her inferior birth.
Duan Ling Tian noticed Ke Er's gaze and instantly understood what she was thinking.
He understood that if he wanted Ke Er to let go of the sense of inferiority in her heart, he had to make a good example.
He needed to at least let Ke Er know that in this world, dignity and honor were things you had to fight for on your own.
"Ke Er, can you tell me why we should change our seats?"
Duan Ling Tian asked in a gentle voice while affectionately looking at Ke Er.
"Young master, I...."
Ke Er didn't know what to say.
"Ke Er, you have to remember that ever since the day you followed me home, you stopped being the Ke Er that you used to be. I hope that I can see a confident you, a you that has gained new life, and not the old you. Do you understand?"
Guided Duan Ling Tian patiently and gently.
"Young Master, I was wrong."
Ke Er's eyes were slightly red as she lowered her head.
"Hey! Did the two of you hear me? This miss doesn't like strangers around when she eats, so hurry up and F**K off!"
After hearing Duan Ling Tian and Ke Er chat, the greed-clothed young girl turned angry from embarrassment and shouted this.
"Miss Chen, right?"
Duan Ling Tian suddenly looked towards the green-clothed young girl.
"I'll give you the time of three breaths to f**k off from my seat, or else.... you will face the consequences!"
Duan Ling Tian's eyes flashed with a cold light. His voice was suppressed until it sounded grim and low.
The green-clothed young girl's face changed.
Just when she was about to start scolding.
She felt a cold aura emanate from the youth and descend upon her, suppressing her until she could hardly breathe; it even caused her face to turn pale.
"Two more breaths left!"
The low and grim voice sounded again.
This time, the icy cold aura suppressed her even more!
The green-clothed young girl's consciousness nearly collapsed, but being the Chen family's Patriarch's daughter, her pride as the Chen family's eldest daughter allowed her to clench her teeth and persevere.
"One more breath left!"
The low and grim voice sounded a third time like muffled thunder.
Accompanying the voice this time was not only the icy cold aura but also a trace of a bloodthirsty aura.
The green-clothed young girl's face was ghastly pale. When she got to the point where she could not hold on any longer, she stood up in panic.
While helplessly watching Duan Ling Tian sit down, the frightening aura that suppressed her slowly disappeared.
"Who are you?"
The green-clothed young girl asked unwillingly after taking a deep breath.
She could not understand how a youth that looked younger than her had such a frightening aura.
Earlier, she felt as if he was an Asura that had climbed out from the depths of hell; his entire body was emitting an icy cold and bloodthirsty aura.
She didn't doubt that if she had continued to sit, a terribly frightening consequence would befall her.
"Bring me two of your specialty dim sums. Hmmm, also bring me two bowls of soya-bean milk."
Duan Ling Tian slowly said. He acted as if he hadn't heard the green-clothed young girl and instead looked at the dumbstruck attendants
One of the attendants responded respectfully and left.
In his opinion, someone who dared to go against the Chen family's eldest daughter, Chen Mei Er, was no ordinary person.
"Hey! I'm talking to you. Didn't you hear me?"
Chen Mei Er was on the brink of going berserk.
Ever since she could remember, she was the beloved daughter of her parents and was doted upon constantly. This was the first time someone had actually ignored her.
"Ke Er, the dim sum here is good; you should try some. If you like it, I'll bring you here every morning."
Duan Ling Tian looked at the young girl opposite to him, his eyes filled tenderness as he smiled lightly.
"Young Master, coming here to eat occasionally is enough. I remember hearing that the dim sum here is extremely expensive."
The young girl sensibly shook her head.
"It's alright. Even though I'm not extremely rich, it's more than enough to satisfy my Ke Er's taste buds."
Duan Ling Tian's unconcealed words caused the young girl to lower her head out of embarrassment. Her tender and lovely cheeks blushed.
"Young Master, my Miss is speaking to you."
The servant girl beside Chen Mei Er timidly said to Duan Ling Tian as she looked at Ke Er in admiration.
"Following this sort of Miss must be really hard on you."
Duan Ling Tian glanced at the servant girl before faintly smiling.
"No...It's not...Miss....Miss is very good to me."
The servant girl's face turned ghastly white from fear as she hurriedly said this.
"Did I ask you to speak?"
Chen Mei Er gave the servant girl a stare.
At this moment, there was a trace of envy in her heart. Even she didn't think that there would be a day where she would be envious of the servant girl beside her.
Not for any other reason but because the hateful guy who ignored her actually spoke nicely to her servant girl.
"Miss Mei Er!"
"Miss Mei Er, it's really you!"
The three youths sitting at the nearby table recognized Chen Mei Er, so they were walking over and enthusiastically greeting her.
Their tones were filled with admiration.
Chen Mei Er's expression eased up and she looked proudly towards Duan Ling Tian.
It was as if she was trying to tell Duan Ling Tian: I, Chen Mei Er, am richly endowed by nature and there are many people who acknowledge me.
But when she noticed that Duan Ling Tian still had not even glanced at her, her expression instantly turned gloomy.
"Miss Mei Er, what's wrong?"
One of the youths who was older than Chen Mei Er asked when he noticed her change.
"Yeah, Miss Mei Er, do you need us to help you with anything?"
The other two youths who were the same age as Chen Mei Er hurriedly asked as well.
"This seat was mine, but he forced me to move and snatched my seat."
Chen Mei Er glanced at Duan Ling Tian. A trace of injustice emerged from her clear eyes as she exaggerated.
"What? He dared to snatch Miss Mei Er's seat?"
"Kid, you really are tremendously brave!"
When the three youths heard her, they shouted and instantly became furious at Duan Ling Tian.
"Miss, why do you slander others?"
Ke Er asked. After hearing what Chen Mei Er had said, her immature face turned slightly red.
Ke Er's exquisite eyes that were slightly red caused the three youths who were filled with righteous indignations to be struck dumb.
Had they ever see such a beautiful girl before?
At this moment, they even forgot what they were doing....
"Is she nice to look at?"
Chen Mei Er said, with a stern voice as her face turned dark.
"Yes, no, no!"
The three youths were startled and came back to their senses.
Only now did they remember that the Chen family's eldest daughter was famous for being jealous.
Allegedly, a long time ago, a servant of the Chen family praised a servant girl to be more beautiful than her, and as a result both, the servant and servant girl both disappeared into thin air.
They looked towards Duan Ling Tian and furiously said,
"Kid, if you know what's good for you, hurry up and f**k off. Didn't you even try to find out if Miss Chen is someone you can offend?"
"If you don't f**k off, don't blame the three of us for not going easy on you!"
