“Guessing game?” Ugly Gambler muttered in doubt. He then laughed and said, “That’s what kids play. Just one round will be boring. How about doing three rounds? You will be asking one question, I will ask the other, and this beautiful lady will ask the final question.”
Ugly Gambler did not want to give Xiang Shaoyun the full initiative. He might be confident with himself, but he loved having the initiative as well. Initiative would always give one the advantage. That was one of the most important things to take note of for a gambler.
Xiang Shaoyun’s expression changed slightly as he asked, “Are you afraid, Lord Gambler? Let’s end it with a single round. What’s the point of making it too complicated?”
“No. As a professional gambler, I pursue the fun of gambling. Where’s the fun if we end it so quickly? We’ll be doing three rounds,” said Ugly Gambler. “Kid, we are betting with our lives at stake. This is no joke. Don’t bother negotiating.”
Xiang Shaoyun couldn’t say anything to that. He could only nod in agreement.
“That’s more like it. You’ll go first,” said Ugly Gambler with a smug smile.
“What will your question be, young brother?” asked Liu Yezi as she winked mischievously.
Her eyes were practically spewing fire as she gazed at Xiang Shaoyun with pa.s.sion, completely disregarding Tuoba Wan’er. This was her very first time meeting a young man with such looks and temperament, and she longed intensely to make him hers.
Xiang Shaoyun glanced at Liu Yezi and smirked, “Let’s guess the color of your undergarment. What about that?”
Liu Yezi blushed slightly and said with a seductive tone, “You’re a naughty boy.”
The people around them were filled with admiration for Xiang Shaoyun’s courage. He was actually teasing the deputy hall master. However, that would be an excellent question if they were to get a glimpse at Liu Yezi’s undergarment from it.
Ugly Gambler asked, “Are you sure? The two of you aren’t in an affair, right?”
“Hehe, Lord Gambler, I’m more interested in having an affair with you instead,” said Liu Yezi with a bright smile.
“If you really want it, I’ll grant your wish tonight,” offered Ugly Gambler with a perverted smile. He was definitely no gentleman.
“I dare not,” Liu Yezi hurriedly said. Inwardly, she cursed, Even if I do it with a beggar, I won’t want to have anything to do with an ugly b.a.s.t.a.r.d like you.
“What do you think, Lord Gambler?” asked Xiang Shaoyun as his face turned serious.
A complicated look flashed past Ugly Gambler’s face as he stared at Xiang Shaoyun. He gave it some thought and then asked, “You sure you’re not having an affair with her? Why would you ask that question otherwise?”
“Hehe, if that’s what you think, Lord Gambler, we can change the question,” said Xiang Shaoyun with a shrug.
Ugly Gambler hesitated for a bit before answering, “Since you are the one in charge of this round, we’ll go with your question.”
“Sure. Since I came up with the question, you may go first,” said Xiang Shaoyun.
“That’s not fair. We will be bickering endlessly if you decide to give the same answer as me. Why don’t we both write our answers down and have Lady Liu be the judge,” said Ugly Gambler.
“Sure,” Xiang Shaoyun agreed confidently.
Liu Yezi then had someone bring some writing tools over and hand them over to Xiang Shaoyun and Ugly Gambler. Xiang Shaoyun wrote his answer down in a carefree manner, while Ugly Gambler kept looking at Liu Yezi. He was looking at her so much she started s.h.i.+vering before he finally wrote his answer.
“If you’re done, hand it over. We’ll let everyone witness this,” said Liu Yezi.
Xiang Shaoyun’s paper had “green” written on it, while Ugly Gambler’s paper had “red” written on it. The two had obviously given wrong answers. At this time, the people around them tensed up. They all focused on Liu Yezi, as though they would wish for nothing more than to rip her clothes off and see what undergarment she had in there.
Liu Yezi might have the reputation of being a l.u.s.tful person, but even she would blush when so many men were staring at her. She couldn’t help looking at Xiang Shaoyun and asked openly, “Young brother, did you peep on me while I was showering yesterday? How would you know the color otherwise?” She was basically saying that Xiang Shaoyun got the answer right.
Xiang Shaoyun felt a sharp pain in his waist. He laughed dryly and said, “Of course not. That was a lucky guess.”
Ugly Gambler said, “Take off your clothes, or I won’t believe this.”
“So be it. You think I would be scared?” said Liu Yezi boldly as she pulled her clothes down.
However, she only revealed her shoulder, showing her tender and fair skin and half the peak on her chest. The men around her started bleeding from their noses at what they saw. The weather is so hot. That was the thought in their minds. As she pulled her clothes down, her green undergarment was revealed.
“You two were really sleeping with each other!” Ugly Gambler concluded.
“Young brother, why don’t we sleep together tonight?” offered Liu Yezi with a seductive tone after pulling her clothes back up.
The same sharp pain a.s.saulted Xiang Shaoyun’s waist again.
He smiled helplessly and s.h.i.+fted the topic, “I win this round. Lord Gambler, you may start the next round.”
Ugly Gambler did not bicker about it. He said, “Fine. You win this round. For the second round, I propose we have a game of dominoes. I will let you witness the prowess of the saint of gamblers.”
Just as Ugly Gambler was about to display his skill in excitement, Xiang Shaoyun shamelessly said, “I surrender.”
Ugly Gambler and all the surrounding people were completely dumbstruck.
Brother, you’re betting with your life! How can you surrender so easily? It’s not like the one with the better gambling skill is guaranteed to win in a game of dominoes. Luck plays a role as well.
Ugly Gambler might be a gambling addict, but what he enjoyed most was the process. Xiang Shaoyun’s sudden surrender drove him mad. However, there was nothing he could do as it wasn’t like surrendering was prohibited.
“Kid, be very careful. One more loss and your life is mine,” warned Ugly Gambler sternly.
Xiang Shaoyun shrugged and said, “Of course I’ll be careful. I was never good at dominoes. We might as well not waste any time. Lady Liu, please proceed with the third round.”
Just as Liu Yezi was about to speak, Ugly Gambler interrupted, “Hold on. The two of you are in an affair. She can’t be the one providing the third question. Make someone else do it.”
“If that’s what you think, why don’t we have a game of count and check? That is a very common game, and I believe you would be confident in yourself as well,” proposed Xiang Shaoyun after he gave it some thought.
A smile formed on Ugly Gambler’s face as he said, “Your first question involved guessing, and you’re trying to do the same now? I’m not stupid. Let’s do a dice throw instead.”
