Chapter 61: Do You Have a Tendency for Masochism? Are You Cheap?
On the second day, Lin Beifan and the Little Princess arrived at the inn early.
To Lin Beifan’s surprise, Prince Hamu and his companions smiled happily when they saw him, without any signs of anger.
“Prince Hamu and everyone, how did you enjoy yesterday? Are you satisfied?” Lin Beifan asked with a smile.
“Thanks to Mr. Lin, we had good food and drink yesterday and had a great time! We are very grateful to Mr. Lin for his hospitality, really thank you very much!” Prince Hamu’s smile was as warm as the spring breeze.
“Yes, thank you Mr. Lin for your care yesterday!”
“I feel like I’m back home! To put it in the idiom of Great Wu: guests feel at home! Haha!”
“Thank you so much, Mr. Lin!”
The Little Princess following behind Lin Beifan was puzzled.
Lin Beifan treated you like this, and you still say he is good?
Do you have a tendency for masochism?
Lin Beifan’s smile grew even brighter. “As long as you’re satisfied, that’s all that matters! Since everyone is happy with my arrangements, shall we follow yesterday’s itinerary again? We’ll have breakfast and lunch at Liangji Breakfast Shop, go to Luoxia Restaurant for dinner, have someone play the suona and perform the shenwu dance, and then invite some plump and old flower girls…”
“No, no, no… it’s not necessary, Mr. Lin is too polite!” The envoys shook their heads.
“Sir Lin, it’s like this!” Prince Hamu said solemnly, “We are deeply grateful for your care yesterday, so we unanimously decided to host Sir Lin from today on!”
Lin Beifan was confused: “Ah? How is this possible? You are all distinguished guests who came from afar. It should be me who hosts you, which is in accordance with the rules of etiquette, isn’t it?”
“Lord Lin, please don’t be so polite!” Prince Hamu’s expression turned serious: “If you don’t give us this opportunity, it means you don’t give me face, and we won’t be friends in the future!”
The prince’s face must be saved!
Lin Beifan was stunned: “Since it’s like this, then I will accept it humbly!”
“That’s right! Haha!” Prince Hamu and his companions laughed heartily.
The Little Princess was even more puzzled!
Lin Beifan treated you like this, and you invite him back?
Are you cheap?
With this baffled question, the Little Princess followed them.
This time, it was Prince Hamu and his companions who led the way.
They took Lin Beifan to a luxurious teahouse and laughed, “Baiju House, a famous teahouse far and wide. I’ve heard of it even when I was in Darro. The tea is not only fragrant, but the breakfast inside is also excellent!”
The Little Princess couldn’t help but interrupt, “The breakfast inside is really good, I often come here to eat! Especially love the osmanthus cake, crystal shrimp dumplings, steamed pork dumplings and barbecue pork buns inside!”
She was drooling while speaking.
They walked into the Baiju House while chatting and laughing.
After they sat down, Prince Hamu handed the menu to Lin Beifan.
“Mr. Lin, please!”
Lin Beifan politely replied,” You are the guests, and it is your invitation, so please go ahead!”
“Mr. Lin, don’t be polite to me!” the prince chuckled.
“Since the prince insists, I won’t hold back anymore. Bring me two servings of everything on the menu!” Lin Beifan said.
Prince Hamu’s lips twitched, “You really aren’t holding back!”
“Waiter, did you hear? Bring two servings of everything on the menu!” the prince ordered.
“Yes, honored guests!” the waiter replied.
Then, they listened to the storyteller’s story, drank fragrant tea, and ate delicious breakfast.
After finishing breakfast, they started another day of sightseeing.
This time, they went in another direction, and it was even more lively.
Prince Hamu smiled as he walked, “Mr. Lin, if you see anything you like, don’t hesitate to say so. Don’t be polite to me!”
Lin Beifan was flattered,” Prince Hamu, how can I do that? You have already paid for our meal earlier, which made me feel guilty. If you pay again, it will really make me feel bad. It’s not appropriate!”
Prince Hamu pretended to be displeased, “If you consider me a friend, don’t refuse my kindness!”
Lin Beifan reluctantly nodded, “Well, alright!”
Soon, Lin Beifan spotted a inkstone that he liked.
“Shopkeeper, how much is this inkstone?” he asked.
“It’s not expensive, only 500 taels of silver!” the shopkeeper replied.
“It’s really not expensive. Your Highness, please pay for it!” Lin Beifan said.
Prince Hamu: “……”
After a while, Lin Beifan saw a pair of precious hairpins that he liked.
“Shopkeeper, how much are these hairpins?” he asked.
“Sir has a good eye! These are made of pure gold and are beautifully decorated with two small agate stones. They are very exquisite! These hairpins are unique in the entire capital. If you want them, I’ll only charge you 800 taels!” the shopkeeper explained.
“Not bad, Your Highness, please pay for it!” Lin Beifan said.
Prince Hamu: “……”
In this way, in less than half a day, Lin Beifan had acquired many valuable items, while Prince Hamu had lost thousands of taels.
