Chapter 2068: Superficial World
Yun Shishi was silent.
This world was indeed a superficial place.
If it was just an ordinary person being bullied by the boss in such a manner, not that many people would stand up for that individual.
She had lost her faith in this superficial world.
In the end, Gong Jie got the net from the boss as he wished. The man sat on the small stool and began to fish.
The boss could feel his heart bleeding as he watched at the side. He secretly prayed for the man’s net to break.
Unfortunately, the latter’s technique was exceptionally special. He fished almost eighteen fishes without the net breaking once.
The more the boss watched, the more alarmed he became.
Alas, the guy fished to the point that his hand began to feel cramp, yet the fishing net remained intact.
What in the world?! thought the stall owner gloomily to himself. He was sure he had handed a bad fishing net to the young chap earlier. Was he God?
He had heard of Jiang Ziya fishing with a straight fishing hook, yet this lad could also fish a pond of fishes with a broken net?
Truly, the longer a person lived, the more one saw.
In the end, Gong Jie grew bored of it and finally threw the fishing net into the pond. He then carried the bucket of fishes to the sealing machine.
Yun Shishi counted. There were twenty fish in total.
They did not have such a big fish tank at home.
They were all still newly hatched fish. When they grew up…
She was afraid to imagine what it would look like with twenty huge goldfish squeezed together…
It had to be frightening.
She even had goosebumps.
“Don’t like them?”
The woman nodded her head. “I don’t really like goldfish.”
The man looked at the goldfish in fret.
Hearing this, the boss’s eyes glinted. Just when he thought that the man would return the fish to the pond, he saw him walking over, instead. The handsome man passed the bag of fish to a little girl who had been watching him for a long while.
“These are for you.”
“For… For me?! Really?” The girl’s eyes sparkled as she asked in disbelief.
“Yep. My sis doesn’t like them.”
With that, he held his sister’s hand and casually helped her carry the two plushies before leaving.
Seeing that the bigshot was finally leaving, the boss celebrated while feeling brokenhearted over his losses.
This lad came along one time, and an entire day’s business was all for nothing.
On the road, Yun Shishi was still pondering over it.
“It’s so strange.”
Gong Jie lowered his head. With his brows furrowed, he asked, “Hm?”
She finally raised her doubt. “Xiao Jie, weren’t you a bit too good at that game? Normally, such fishing nets would break from just fishing one. The best player I’ve seen had their net broken after three to four fishes.”
That was what was strange to her, huh.
His lips curled into a smile as he replied casually, “That net wouldn’t break.”
“Why are you so certain?”
Seeing how resolute he looked, she was more puzzled.
“It’s because that’s the boss’s fishing net,” he responded.
The boss purposely handed him a net with a fine tear, and he noticed it at first glance, so he secretly switched the net from the boss’s waist while the other was not looking with the broken net. The boss’s net was used to keep the fishes when closing the booth. The other did not notice it even to the end.
Playing such cheap tricks on him? He would not mind being shadier than that fellow.
The woman’s mouth went agape in shock. “The boss’s fishing net? He was that kind?”
“Perhaps he gave me the wrong one.”
He would certainly not tell her that he switched the nets secretly. It was too disgraceful and would ruin her image of him.
“Still, aren’t you a bit too good? Especially with that balloon-shooting game, did you undergo specialized training for it before?”
“That’s my first time playing it.”
“You have such exceptional gaming talent!”
The woman was rendered speechless.
