Under the attention of the public, the Princess Villa in the southern suburbs had finally opened.
Princess Villa was a consumer place that integrated food, accommodation, leisure and entertainment. The price was relatively high. Even so, customers were still rushing to it. As soon as it opened, the entire villa was overcrowded.
In the blink of an eye, the dining hall was crowded with guests. A few tables were temporarily added, but the supply still could not meet the demand. Soon, the expensive private rooms and VIP buildings were also full.
On the first day of opening, Princess Villa launched a discount event. Every guest would be given a small glass of aromatic millet wine for free. Customers who had a black crystal VIP card would also get an extra 20% discount.
The discount was secondary. When the small glass of wine was served and drank, almost all customers showed a pleasant expression. This aromatic millet wine was fragrant and mellow which tasted far better than fruit wine and rice wine. It also had a strong aftertaste. It was indeed worthy of its name as the best fine wine. The waiting for the past few days was really worth it!
After the customers tasted the good wine, they scrambled to start ordering the wine. Unfortunately, non-Princess Retail Store VIP customers could only buy a glass at most. People who were still looking forward to tasting the wine were jealous when they saw those VIP customers who ordered more than one bottle. They were determined to get the VIP card of the Princess Retail Store. In fact, many white crystal VIP customers felt that 1 bottle was really not satisfying enough. They were also full of envy and hatred for those higher VIPs.
The person in charge of Princess Villa was Lilu, the manager of the capital’s Princess Retail Store. Faced with the crowds of customers, this beautiful succubus was busy managing the shop assistants. Her sweaty face showed a charming smile.
Lilu’s projection appeared on a table in a certain room of the VIP building. There were 3 men in the room who were all young in appearance. The man who controlled the projection magic was a man with black hair and black eyes. There was a hint of sinister between his eyebrows.
The man with blonde hair and purple eyes said, “Dear Sir Charles. Mishan, I was away from the capital for quite a while. When did you change your taste? I clearly remember that you like… the young girls right? Although Lilu is beautiful, she is a mature woman. Why are you suddenly interested in her?”
“You remember correctly, my friend, Diak. Lucifer” Charles grinned, “My real goal is Lilu’s youngest sister, Marlene. I know you like this kind of mature woman. You were crazy about the Devil’s Snare Flower. As a gift to welcome you back to the capital, this woman is yours.”
“Really?” Diak’s eyes lit up as he stared greedily at Lilu’s towering chest in the projection. He was hesitant again, “Lilu is the owner of Princess Retail Store and Princess Villa after all. Her Majesty Empress is behind these properties.”
Charles smiled hideously, “I know, it’s impossible to get her directly, but Her Majesty Empress is now at the time to win people’s hearts. Lilu is just a businesswoman. If she commits a heavy crime, the empress will not protect her, so as not to lose her reputation. By then she will be just a female prisoner whom you can play with however you want.”
“Commits a heavy crime?” Diak frowned, “No matter what you plan, it’s better to be cautious.”
“Diak, did you lose your guts to play with women after being captured by the Dark Moon when you were defeated last time? If you dare not go for this woman, I will!” Another man with short red hair said contemptuously. This man was handsome and well-dressed, but he was overdressed and arrogant.
Diak. Lucifer used to serve as an envoy when the Blue Lava Estate and Red Spirit Estate launched an estate battle against the Dark Moon. In fact, he was monitoring the army. As a result, Blue Lava Army was annihilated by the undead in the Town Yankou. Diak was captured, and he surrendered to the Dark Moon. When Shea defeated Obsidian, he was able to return to the capital.
“Lawson. Boll!” This ridicule made Diak stand up abruptly. Both of them had never got along with each other, so the situation immediately got tense.
“Okay, don’t fight.” Charles stood up to make peace. “We are good friends, why bother to hurt peace for a woman like this?”
Diak, Lordan, Charles, plus Lawson of the Boll Family were known as the 4 great geniuses of the capital’s youth. There were only 3 of the “4 Young Masters of the Capital” after Lordan died because of the ambush of “Aguile”.
“Do you think I’m really interested in the kind of Lilu?” Lawson shook his head, “I happened to see a woman the night before. She is so beautiful that I can’t describe it in words. Even Isabella back then was a bit inferior. It’s a pity that she disappeared so soon. In the past 2 days, I tried my best to find her, but to no avail. No matter what means I use, I must get this woman!”
“Oh? There is such stunning beauty in the capital?” Charles asked with interest, “What kind of woman is it?”
“Hmph! It’s not the type of little girl you like anyway.”
Charles stopped questioning and glanced at Diak, “Diak, I know that Obsidian died under the Sword of Fallen Angel, and your royal family was scared by the artifact. But don’t forget, when Prince Obsidian was in power for 300 years, he wanted to crush the elder families all the time, but what happened in the end? He still had to give face to the elder families! No matter how excellent and talented Empress Shea is, she ascended the throne in less than a month. Do you think she will lose sight of big matters because of small matters? Let me tell you that the more you are in this situation, the more you have to do something to stabilize the overall situation. After a few years when the empress foundation is stable, even if we converge and make concessions, it will not hurt the foundation. Diak, you can watch the good show with peace of mind! “
When Diak heard this, he didn’t say anything.
In the dining hall of Princess Villa, a person suddenly yelled, “What kind of dish is this? There is a dead mouse!”
Seeing a dead mouse in the man’s hand, many people suddenly became disgusted. At the same time, a person from another table began to slam the table and shout.
Lilu walked over calmly, looked at the minotaur holding the dead mouse, and asked, “Who instructed you to cause trouble?”
Her voice was not loud, but it overwhelmed the noisy audience.
The minotaur was about to yell, but he suddenly saw a strange fluctuation flickering in Lilu’s eyes. The eyes of the minotaur and the few accomplices beside him suddenly became dull.
“We are instructed by Sir Cody of the Night Chamber of Commerce.” Several guys said in unison.
Cody was a small manager of the Night Chamber of Commerce who was a member of the Mishan Family. Everyone understood when he said this. A few strong waiters took these troublemakers out of the shop, and the other table did not dare to make noise. Without waiting for the waiters, they left the hall rapidly. It benefited some waiting guests who immediately filled up the empty seats.
“Is this the show you are talking about?” In the VIP building room, Diak frowned and looked at Charles.
Charles stared at Lilu’s project with interest, “I didn’t expect this succubus to be so capable. She actually has the talent to charm a crowd? Her strength is at least Demon King level. However, the more she is such a woman, the more interesting to play with, isn’t it, Diak?”
Diak nodded when he saw his proud look, “The good show is not over yet, I’ll wait and see.”
After the troublemakers were cleared out. The hall was lively again. Soon afterward, there was a noise at the entrance. A group of soldiers armed with weapons broke in. It was the capital’s garrison guards that were responsible for the capital’s security work. They were led by Captain Basroya. Leif.
Lilu raised her brows slightly, and she greeted him with a smile, “It turns out to be Sir Basroya, welcome!”
Basroya gave Lilu a cold look, “Are you the person in charge of Princess Villa?”
“Yes, sir. Sir also visited the head office of the Princess Retail Store a few days ago…”
Basroya interrupted Lilu’s attempt to bond with him, “Give me a glass of aromatic millet wine first.”
Lilu immediately ordered someone to deliver a small glass, but Basroya did not drink it. Instead, he handed it to a person behind him. Someone recognized that person as Damond from the Mishan Family’s wine merchant. Damond took a sip and nodded immediately, “Yes. It is this kind of wine; it is brewed with the stolen recipe of our Mishan Family.”
Lilu’s complexion changed as Basroya said coldly, “A few months ago, Mishan Family’s secret wine recipe was stolen. The wine cellar of the eastern suburbs exploded last night. I now have good reason to suspect that you are related to these 2 major cases. Take this woman away!”
Lilu has calmed down, “These 2 matters have nothing to do with me. Now there is no evidence and just a word from this person. How can you take me away?”
Many guests in the wine building also booed and supported Lilu, but Basroya’s expression remained unchanged, “If someone proves that you are suspicious, you must return to the garrison guard department to assist in the investigation. This is the responsibility of the garrison guard team! Once it is found that it has nothing to do with you, you can return safely. If you resist or run away now, at least you will be charged with resisting arrest!”
Lilu took a deep look at Damond, “I will go with you, but if I am proven to be innocent, I must investigate this person and the forces behind the false accusation!”
Basroya did not answer as he waved, “Take her away!”
When the garrison guard team took Lilu away, the hall suddenly burst into discussions. Many people felt that Damond made a false accusation. This was the first time this kind of aromatic millet wine was seen in the Demon Realm. The quality of wine was far better than the fruit wine and rice wine. If the Mishan Family really had such a fine wine recipe, they would have made a lot of money long ago.
“Is it really okay to do this?” Diak in the VIP room asked after thinking for a while.
“Last night, the wine cellar of the eastern suburb was really set on fire and exploded. The Mishan Family suffered heavy losses. Lilu’s suspicion is indeed very big. With a little means, the charges can almost be decided. Now is the critical moment of negotiation with the Dark Shadow Empire’s envoys. Angley, the patriarch of the Mishan Family, is an important member of the negotiation team. Her Majesty Empress will not affect the big picture for a mere Lilu. In case the empress wants to protect Lilu, I will just sacrifice a Damond at most. However, in that case, you have to wait for the next chance to get Lilu.”
As he was talking, someone in the dining hall suddenly slammed the table and stood up, “How can this glass of wine be enough! What lousy rules are these! I have money. Give me a big bottle right away!”
This sentence immediately resonated with many people. Of course, the waiters could not make the decision to fulfill their requirements. Under the instigation of some ill-intentioned people, the calls to loosen up the purchase restrictions became louder and louder. Some people began to make trouble with the “drunkness”. The waiters who tried to stop them were knocked to the ground.
Due to the lack of Lilu to preside over the overall situation, the scene became more chaotic. Throwing tables, fighting, seizing wine… Later it was advanced to smashing, grabbing, and burning. It was completely out of control.
The few people in the VIP room watched happily. Zall immediately stood up, “Okay! It’s time for action!”
TL: 🤔Weird, such an important day, how could only Lilu be there? Is this a bait?
