Xiao Yun was also a little shocked when he heard Zhang Lexuan’s answer. He knew Zhang Lexuan’s family was very rich, but he did not expect his family to own a supermarket.
Zhang Lexuan nodded and said, “Mmhmm, my family owns that kind of supermarket chain. The scale is not bad. I’ll wait until next week to bring back some food for you.”
The moment Chubs heard that there was something to eat, he instantly forgot the bitterness of Xiao Yun and Zhang Lexuan not being able to play with him this week.
He jumped up and down, clapping and cheering.
“How about it, Brother Xiao? Are you planning to go on Saturday?” asked Zhang Lexuan, calling Xiao Yun the way Chubs did. Zhang Lexuan had felt a little awkward calling Xiao Yun that initially, but he was slowly getting used to it.
Xiao Yun nodded and agreed. Zhang Lexuan was going anyway, so he could save on the bus fare. Since he didn’t have enough money, he should save as much as he could.
“Where shall I pick you up tomorrow?” asked Zhang Lexuan.

Xiao Yun thought for a moment. “Wait for me at the bus stop near the kindergarten. What time will you leave tomorrow morning?”
“I can leave at any time. It’s up to you,” said Zhang Lexuan indifferently.
Xiao Yun thought for a moment. Since Xiao He would usually go to work around 7:30 am, and it would take about twenty minutes to walk from home to school, he had already decided on the time. “Then let’s meet at 8:00 am. I’ll wait for you at the bus stop.”
“Okay.” Zhang Lexuan agreed.
“Big Brother Xiao Yun, where are you going tomorrow? Can you bring Xi Xi with you?” asked Lin Xi, who had been silent all this time.
Xiao Yun turned around and patted Lin Xi’s head. “Big Brother Xiao Yun has something to do tomorrow. When I come back, I’ll home some candy for you. Will Xi Xi wait for Big Brother Xiao Yun at home obediently?”
Lin Xi blinked her big eyes and nodded. “Okay, then Big Brother Xiao Yun, don’t forget to buy Xi Xi some candy.”
“Got it.” He pinched Lin Xi’s nose as he spoke.
“Brother Xiao, you can’t be biased. I want some too,” said Chubs as he moved closer to Xiao Yun.
Zhang Lexuan: “Chubs, you should eat less. Otherwise, you will turn into your nickname.”
“Hey, how dare you say that about me?” Chubs ran towards Zhang Lexuan and they got into a minor fight, as usual.
Early the next morning, Zhang Lexuan was already waiting at the bus stop.
Xiao Yun saw him and quickly walked over. He opened the door and got in. “Sorry to have kept you waiting.”
“Don’t worry about it. I hadn’t been waiting that long. We can go now,” said Zhang Lexuan, first to Xiao Yun, then to the driver.
“Where are you going?” asked Zhang Lexuan.
To be honest, Xiao Yun didn’t know when and where the person who won the lottery in his previous life bought the lottery ticket, so he could only try his luck.
“Just a random lottery station,” said Xiao Yun.
“What are you going there for?” asked Zhang Lexuan in surprised confusion.
“I’m going to buy lottery tickets,” said Xiao Yun casually.
Zhang Lexuan nodded. “Go to the lottery station.”
“Okay,” said the driver respectfully, which turned out to be Zhang Lexuan’s bodyguard too.
It took twenty minutes to reach a lottery station in the town.
The two got out of the car and Xiao Yun asked, “Aren’t you in a hurry to go to your supermarket?”
Zhang Lexuan looked at the time and said, “Not yet. Is it okay to follow you?”
“Sure. Let’s go,” said Xiao Yun as he looked at the surrounding environment.
“Hey, isn’t this Liu Yidao?” A voice of mockery came.
Xiao Yun heard a familiar nickname, so he quickly followed the voice.
As expected, this was the person he was looking for. Xiao Yun did not expect his luck to be so good today to be able to meet the main character so easily.
Liu Yidao’s original name was Liu Xilai, but because he had fought with someone a few years ago and got a cut on his arm that left a scar, he earned his nickname.
Liu Yidao was seen swaggering over from afar before entering a small store. Not long after, a pack of cigarettes appeared in his hand.
He opened the pack of cigarettes and lit one for himself before walking forward.
In his previous life, after Liu Yidao won the lottery, not only did he buy a house, but he also bought a car. He took beautiful women for rides all day long, which made others extremely envious.
At that time, a car was a luxury item for people, so Liu Yidao, who owned a car, was the center of attention.
At this time, Liu Yidao was swearing and Xiao Yun could hear him very clearly from afar.
Xiao Yun was not sure whether Liu Yidao was buying lottery tickets today. But whether he was or not, Xiao Yun had made up his mind to follow him, so he quietly watched Liu Yidao walk to his next destination and followed him.
However, what surprised Xiao Yun was that he had made the right bet today. Although Liu Yidao didn’t go to the lottery station he had won at in Xiao Yun’s previous life, he went to another lottery station not far away.
Xiao Yun hurriedly suppressed his excitement and led Zhang Lexuan as they followed closely.
The lottery station was not big, only about twenty square meters. There were a few old lottery customers in the room who were discussing the winning trend of the lottery.
The moment Liu Xilai entered, he attracted the attention of the entire room.
The owner of the lottery station was a bald man. When he saw Liu Yidao enter, he could not help but tease him, “Aiyo, isn’t this Liu Yidao? He hasn’t been coming to our lottery station recently. Where did he go to make a fortune?”
Liu Yidao spat and said, “Make a fortune my a**. I wanted to win some money in that newly opened mahjong shop today but that boss was too evil. The machine must have been tampered with and caused me to lose a lot. I’m never going there again.”
After nagging, Liu Yidao said to the boss, “As before, I’m placing a bet.”
“Why don’t you buy five bets this time?” asked the boss while munching on melon seeds.
Liu Yidao snatched the melon seeds from the boss and started munching on them too. “I want to place one bet today. Do you have a problem with that?”
“I don’t dare, do I?” asked the boss without moving. He just looked at Liu Yidao with a smile.
“Why are you looking at me? Go,” said Liu Yidao angrily.
The boss reached out his hand and made a gesture to count the money.
Liu Yidao: “F*ck, I don’t have much money. Put it on my tab first.”
The boss’s face fell as he pointed at the notice at the door that read, “This is a small business, no credit.”
“Come on, Boss. I’m a regular customer here. Why don’t you believe me?” Liu Yidao tried to negotiate his way through as he popped another melon seed into his mouth. After eating it, he spat it on the ground.
“Who buys lottery tickets on credit? When you win, will it be yours or mine?” The boss was not convinced and retorted.
Xiao Yun could not help but sigh inwardly when he heard this. “This boss will regret it in the future. After all, if he just let Liu Yidao put it on his tab, he might get some share of the prize when heLiu Yidao wins the lottery.”
