The next morning before dawn, the two brothers living on the third floor opened their doors at the same time. Gu Yang was carrying a very stuffed school bag and quietly followed Gu Ye down the stairs and into the garage.
When Gu Yang was about to open the door, Gu Ye grabbed his collar and pulled him back. “Let me draw a talisman first.”
“Okay.” Gu Yang obediently stood aside, watching Gu Ye draw something invisible in the air with worshipping eyes.
The waiting driver : “…”
As soon as they got in the car, Gu Ye said, “Don’t move out until six o’clock, not even a minute early. I’m going to be rich today.”
The driver was speechless. No wonder the boss always wanted to beat up this son of his, He too would feel the same if this was his son. Last night, the third young master came to him and asked him to send the young master to a place. He thought that there was an urgent matter, but the third young master was actually planning on scamming people with feudal superstition. The third young master was going to take the college entrance examination soon. Doesn’t he know how important that is?
Two minutes later, the driver started the car and asked, “Third Young Master, Fourth Young Master, where do you want to go?”
Gu Ye gestured with his fingers and calculated. “Drive east and stop under the first overpass.”
Gu Yang excitedly opened the zipper of his bag and said to Gu Ye, “Brother, look! I’ve perfectly prepared for the trip!”
Gu Ye leaned over to take a look and was amused. “You got a new Taoist robe?”
“I ordered a new one last night. This is it.”
Gu Ye didn’t know whether to laugh or cry, so he just praised his brother. “You’re so smart.”
“Hehe.” Gu Yang put on the newly purchased Taoist robe and took out a pair of sunglasses from his backpack before putting them on. “Brother, how about I pretend to be blind? Don’t we need to examine the customer’s bones later or something?”
Gu Ye refused. “No, only scammers would do such things. We don’t need to do that.”
The driver’s expression was stiff, worried that these two brothers would be beaten when they returned home later.
After driving east for half an hour, they finally saw an overpass. The driver watched as the two brothers got out of the car before asking anxiously, “Third Young Master, Fourth Young Master, how about we just go back now?”
Gu Ye calmly waved his hand and said, “No, we’re fine here.”

It was just after dawn, and in addition to some cars, there weren’t even pedestrians on the street at this hour. Setting up their stall, Gu Yang wondered, “Brother, will someone really come for fortune telling? Isn’t this place a bit too obscure?”
Gu Ye looked at the luxury car around two hundred meters away from them and smiled. “Didn’t one just arrive? Just at the right time, too.”
Gu Yang looked back suspiciously and believed that the person wouldn’t necessarily stop by.
In the blink of an eye, the car was already approaching them and sped past them. Gu Yang wanted to say to his brother that he had made a mistake, but unexpectedly, the car suddenly slowed down after more than ten meters before gradually stopping at the side of the road and slowly reversing.
Gu Yang’s eyes widened and he gaped in his shock. His brother was truly an immortal!
He YunYi was the boss of a leather shoes processing company. His business has always been good with an annual income of several million yuan. Early this year, he received a large order, but just when his career was about to take off, a fire broke out at his warehouse a few days ago, burning all the goods. If he couldn’t deliver the goods according to the agreement, he wouldn’t be able to pay for the breach of contract even if he sold his whole factory. He YunYi was desperate and had no choice but to visit the bosses of several factories to ask for their help with the supplies. He had been doing this for a week but still hasn’t found a manufacturer who would agree to help him. Filled with despair on his way back, he saw the two teenagers under the overpass.
When He YunYi got out of the car and saw what the two were holding, he instantly felt as if he had swallowed bitter medicine but couldn’t express how bitter it was. Still, he couldn’t help but smile. “You are still setting up a stall in this weather. You’re very dedicated.”
Gu Ye smiled, “What we’re waiting for is a person who has fate with us. How about it, brother? Care to have your fortune told?”
He YunYi smiled bitterly. “Even if the divination works, I still have to work hard.” He took out 300 yuan and gave it to Gu Ye, who was obviously the older one of the two. “Both of you are well-dressed, so you should have a good family. Do you have some troubles at home? This 300 yuan should be enough for you guys to eat for two days. Go to your relatives or friends for help. Don’t neglect your future while you’re still young.”
Gu Ye narrowed his eyes. “You need this more than we do.”
He YunYi was stunned. Gu Ye looked at him with a smile. With his eyes that were darker than normal, it made He YunYi feel as if he was looking right into his mind. He couldn’t help but feel a tremor running through his heart. He was clearly well-dressed and driving a luxury car, but how could this young man know he’s short of money? Did he really meet an expert? He YunYi’s expression turned serious before asking, “Little Brother, how much is it for one divination?”
Gu Ye looked at the man and said, “Seeing that you’re now down on your luck, I’ll charge 3,000 yuan. You will get rich half a year later, so at that time, you can pay me 30,000 yuan.”
He YunYi’s expression was still calm, but he couldn’t stop himself from asking, “How did you know that I’m down on my luck?”
Gu Ye answered with, “I didn’t.”
Gritting his teeth, He YunYi emptied out his wallet and the amount was exactly 3,000 yuan.
Gu Ye took the money and put it in his pocket before saying, “Looking at your face, the color of your Yin Tang isn’t bright. Your good luck has and will only last for three years. Hold out your palm for me.”
He YunYi was shocked. His luck was really good starting quite some time ago, and if he counted the days, it was exactly three years!
Gu Ye took a look at his palm and said, “Your house has had a fire before.”
He YunYi was once again shocked. This is too accurate!
Gu Ye chuckled. “Shareholders share fortune with each other, which sometimes, is a blessing in disguise. If you believe me, then go east-ward, and you will surely be able to reverse your situation. If this divination is correct, please pay me the rest of the money three months later. I will set up a stall again here during summer vacation.”
Nodding with his jaw clenched, He YunYi said, “Thank you, Master, for your advice!”
At the end of his rope and with nothing else to lose, He YunYi got into the car and drove east. All the way east!
Gu Yang patted Gu Ye’s pocket, and his eyes behind the sunglasses were bright. “Brother! Can fortune-telling bring this much money?”
Gu Ye patted his head with a smile. “Silly boy. We naturally charge the rich more.”
“Didn’t you say that he’s poorer than us?”
“But he will have a lot of money in the future. Lots of it.”
After making a small fortune, the two brothers found a place to eat breakfast. As soon as they swallowed the last bite of their meal, they were dragged into the car by Mrs. Gu and to her newly bought beauty salon.
“Check the Feng Shui for Mom. Change this place to a treasure bowl so that I will make money every day.”
Gu Ye was speechless as he looked at the store. “Mom, the Feng Shui here is already very good. Why do you want to change it?”
Mrs. Gu said with disgust, “That bitch Hu Yu owned this place before and asked for someone to check the Feng Shui. It makes me sick looking at it, so I want to redecorate the place.”
Gu Ye smiled with consternation. “Okay, I’ll set up a wealth gathering array for you. Move this shelf to the wall and put a fish tank here. You need running water, and layer the bottom of the tank with fine sand and some water plants. Sand can gather and store energy and water can carry the energy. This way, customers will continue to increase.”
The shop manager following Mrs. Gu was shocked. She didn’t expect that the Feng Shui master the new owner had invited was so young and apparently her own son, at that. After receiving a hint from Mrs. Gu’s gaze, she quickly noted it down and didn’t dare to neglect even a word.
Gu Ye also pointed to a partition in the southeast direction. “The southeast symbolizes a wide spread of wealth, There’s a problem here. Change that flimsy screen to something much more sturdy.”
Mrs. Gu solemnly said, “I’ll put a wall here directly.”
Gu Ye once again at a loss for words. “As long as you’re happy.”
Mrs. Gu was pleased. “Take a look and tell me what else needs to be changed. We’ll go to the next store after this.”
“Mom, how many stores did you buy?” Gu Yang was surprised.
“Ten or so.” Mrs. Gu said haughtily with her chin raised, “Hu Yu sold them at a low price, so I bought them to piss her off. I have the money, anyway.”
“Isn’t it Dad’s money?” Gu Yang said with doubt.
“No!” Mrs. Gu slapped Gu Yang’s back, displeased. “This old lady is rich!”
Gu Ye felt exasperated. This silly child, why are you telling the truth? Are you asking for a beating?
Following his young mother running around all day long, Gu Ye arranged the Feng Shui of all the stores she had just bought, and by the time he finished, it was already dark. Looking at the time, Mrs. Gu directly booked a private room at a hotel for dinner and called Gu DeCheng. “I will eat dinner outside with our two sons. You can eat by yourself.”
Gu Ye and Gu Yang were having a good time eating a sumptuous dinner. For Mr. Gu, after spending the day outside working hard, he returned home and found that his wife was not there and so were his two youngest sons. Sighing heavily and looking at the dishes served by the maid, he took a sip of the soup and felt that it was tasteless.
Without intelligence, how could she become the lady of the Gu household? She has to act unreasonably once in a while to remind Gu DeCheng that this family couldn’t function without her. Mrs. Gu, who didn’t want to go home early, kept adding vegetables into Gu Ye’s bowl. “Eat more or your brother will be taller than you at this rate. You won’t grow up if you don’t have enough nutrition.”
Holding the bowl, Gu Ye said with an unperturbed tone, “I feel like my younger brother had eaten my share of nutrition when I was a child…”
“Nonsense!” Mrs. Gu blushed and shoved a shrimp into Gu Ye’s mouth. “You were born prematurely. Your mother also faced complications when giving birth to you, so you almost died. You were born less healthy than your brother. I’ve worked very hard to raise you healthily.”
“I know.” Gu Ye smiled. “I’m just teasing you.”
Mrs. Gu : “…”
Eat more so that you can shut your mouth, little brat!
When school started, Gu Ye arrived early and inexplicably felt that his surroundings were a bit quiet. Looking at Zhao PengYu’s seat almost unconsciously, he found that the boy who usually came early hadn’t arrived yet.
At this time, Xia Xiang came in hurriedly and said, “Gu Ye, Zhao PengYu seems to be very ill.”
Thinking of the boy’s supposed disaster, Gu Ye started a divination and his expression instantly changed. “Not good! That guy is dying!”
At this time, Zhao PengYu’s life was hanging by a thread.
