Lan Waihu took a short breath and shook her head. "No." She knew that Yan Chen would find her. However, she was too hurt and did not want to see him for a short period.
Lan Yue smiled. "Are you confident that Yan Chen will meet you that soon?"
Lan Waihu looked up at the sky. "So what?" She was confident that Yan Chen liked her and would not let her go so easily. She could only blame his family for being unfriendly and snobbish.
Lan Yue played with his fingers. "Poor kid. I bet that he will not come to see you within these ten days. His parents are always placed first in his heart. His mother will certainly stop him from finding you at the Tianju Association. He is a filial son, so he will certainly listen to his mother. He will only look for you once his parents are less angry. He knows that you like him a lot regardless of how badly he treats you. You will certainly forgive him as soon as he sweet talks you into getting back into a relationship with him. He will then bring you back to his home. When that time comes, you have to face his mother all over again. Well, of course, if you do not want his mother to treat you like how she did in the past, you can reveal your identity to gain an advantage in the relationship."
What he said was quite hurtful. Lan Waihu paused for a while before answering, "No, he will come and see me right away!"
Lan Yue shook his head. "You don't understand men. Do you dare bet with me?"
"Bet? What kind of bet are we talking about?"
"I bet that he will not come looking for you within these ten days. If I lose the bet and he does come and find you, then our engagement will automatically be canceled. I will still give you the unique dowry of the Blue Fox family when you get married to him. However, if you lose the bet, you have to announce your engagement with me in the Tianju Association and break up with him." Lan Yue looked into Lan Waihu's eyes. "Do you dare to make this bet with me?"
Lan Waihu thought for a long while and finally nodded her head. "I do!"
The journey from Yanzi town to the Tianju Association was only three days. Therefore, if he did not come and find her within the ten days, it meant that she was not significant in his heart. So, why should she insist on maintaining the relationship?
However, she was very confident that Yan Chen would come and find her within that period. When that time comes, she would reveal to Yan Chen about the fact that she was being bullied and he would believe her.
The bet was set. Lan Waihu could not wait any longer. She jumped up and said, "Let's head back to the Tianju Association!" She wanted to make sure that she was there when Yan Chen arrived at the association.
After all, Little Fox was a very simple-minded person. Her emotions were portrayed on her face. Hence, Lan Yue knew her thoughts very well. Though he did not feel happy, he still decided to smile. "Alright, let me take you home. However, you have to promise that you would keep my identity a secret. You have to swear not to tell anyone about it. Besides that, you should not reveal your identity at the moment. Let's treat it as a test to see whether Yan Chen is sincere to you even without your noble identity."
Lan Waihu promised him. However, she was confused. "How do you benefit from this bet?"
He was supposed to meet her so that he could cancel the engagement with her. However, he would lose a set of dowry if she won the bet. On the other hand, he would have to give up his entire life if he lost the bet. Either way, it did not benefit him.
Lan Yue smiled, "There is a way that I can benefit from this bet. However, we would have to finalize our relationship regardless of the results. We would either stay together forever or never see each other again."
Lan Waihu remained silent.
She was not worried that she would lose because she was very confident that Yan Chen would find her soon enough.
It would be the best ending if she could cancel the engagement with Lan Yue through a bet.
Gu Xijiu, who had been watching all the scenes, could not help but sigh.
