Chapter 19 – Xiao Yumei’s Red String of Marriage
Since the ore price was six hundred and sixty thousand, the price was rather nice.
Hearing someone asked for the stone to be cut, a bunch of jewelers surrounded them. Yet, when they saw Ye Zichen’s rock, they all lost interest.
“Which idiot bought this rock?”
“Yeah, it would be a wonder if this crappy piece of rock gives out jade.”
All of the comments were for one side. Everyone felt that this rock would not give out jade. Elder Liu also smiled coldly.
If this rock could give out jade, then it would be fine if he ate the crappy piece of rock that Director Bai cut just now.
“Director Xiao, how do you want to cut it?”
The stonecutter took the rock down, while Xiao Yumei got Ye Zichen to come over with a smile.
Ye Zichen’s eyes flashed with a gold light. After a brief moment, he picked up the chalk, but was unsure of how to draw the line.
“What are you drawing for, just cut it down the middle to show that it’s a loss.”
“Ol’ Three,” Ye Zichen suddenly called Su Yiyun over. “If the surface is so close to the jade that it can’t be cut, what should be done?”
“Why are you cursing me?”
“I said rub!” Su Yiyun rolled his eyes and make the gesture of rubbing the stone.
Only then did Ye Zichen understand. He turned around and shouted at the stonecutter.
The entire crowd instantly sneered.
Does this sort of rock need rubbing? Does he really think that the rock is pure jade?
“He must have gone mad wishing for money.”
Elder Liu also them mocked off to the side.
The customer is always right, since he was asked to rub the rock, the stonecutter naturally had to follow their instructions.
The stonecutter took out the sandpaper board and furiously rubbed on the ore.
White powder fell from the rock.
“Green, it’s green…”
When the people with sharp eyes saw the green, the stonecutter also was amazed.
A bucket of water splashed down, causing the jade-green to become even more clear.
Everyone on the scene went wild, such a bad-looking rock actually gave out jade, and it was an imperial jade.
Elder Liu’s face looked like he ate fly crap…
This was a blatant smack to his face.
“Sir, would you like us to continue?”
Ye Zichen smiled. The stonecutter immediately rubbed even harder.
This sort of imperial jade could only have been found by chance, they don’t see much of this sort of gemstone even though they cut stones every day, so they worked even harder.
“He won, he won a lot!”
Everybody exclaimed continuously. Xiao Yumei also covered her mouth on the side and opened her eyes wide.
“He actually won.”
When another bucket of water was splashed down, the shade of green on the ore was already extremely sharp.
Ye Zichen revealed a confident smile, he knew very clearly whether this rock’s green was just a layer or if it was completely green.
“Little bro, don’t rub anymore, what if you lose! How about selling it to me for ten million?”
“Bastard, you want to buy Imperial Jade with ten million, do you think you’re buying leftovers! I’ll pay twenty million…”
The price continuously rose. Xiao Yumei bit her lips and looked towards Ye Zichen.
“Zichen, can you sell this ore to me?”
“Mei-jie, you really know how to crack a joke, you bought this rock, this rock is yours.”
Ye Zichen shrugged, then smiled towards Xiao Yumei.
Xiao Yumei looked at the carefree Ye Zichen in shock. All of a sudden, she didn’t know what to say.
This imperial jade could make so many pieces of jewelry, it was worth at least billions.
Hearing Ye Zichen and Xiao Yumei’s conversation, the surrounding jewelers all stopped calling their price.
Xiao Yumei was kind of famous in the circle, everyone in the industry felt a bit jealous of her for betting on such a great gemstone, but what they felt more of was congratulations.
Ye Zichen walked over to Elder Liu. At this moment, Elder Liu’s expression was already terrible to the max.
Jade had appeared, and it was a complete imperial jade.
“Elder Liu, what do you think?”
“This old man did make a mistake,” Elder Liu snorted, while clenching his teeth. However, Ye Zichen twitched his mouth and said, “If you aren’t good at it, then stop conning people. Expert? What a joke.”
Despite having a lot of retorts, Elder Liu was unable to say any of them. He could only leave his annoyance buried in his heart.
Ye Zichen smiled as he saw Elder Liu’s annoyance. At this moment, Su Yiyun also came over.
“Ye-zi, what’s going on? Did it really give out jade?”
“What do you think? If it doesn’t, then would I tell Mei-jie to buy it?”
“But that imperial jade is worth at least eighty or ninety million. Since you know that it would definitely give out jade, why didn’t you buy it? It’s not like you can’t afford it.”
Su Yiyun said curiously. This was no small amount, even he would be moved by this.
“Alright, let me give you an example. If you desperately need this jade to keep your business afloat, and I gift it to you after buying it with my own money. Would you take it?”
“No, it’s too valuable.”
“Then if it was with your money?”
“That would seem to be better.”
Su Yiyun thought about it, then very quickly understood.
“You were intentionally helping Director Xiao.”
“You aren’t that dumb.”
“But, Ye-zi, you really are generous, giving out a gemstone worth billions just like that,” Su Yiyun raised a thumb towards Ye Zichen.
“Just giving her a helping hand, do you understand? Mei-jie’s company is in trouble, since I can help, then why not?”
Ye Zichen rolled his eyes at Su Yiyun. What they didn’t know was that Xiao Yumei had heard everything.
Xiao Yumei has always showed an image of a strong independent woman in front of other people, but no one understood just how fragile her inner self was.
When she heard that Ye Zichen thought so much for her, her heart instantly had a different feeling.
Received Marriage String x1.
Another marriage string?
Ye Zichen momentarily blanked. He didn’t do anything, why did another marriage string appear?
He clicked open his Treasure Chest on his phone, then saw two marriage strings.
One of them belonged to Su Yan and him!
The other one…
Possessor: Ye Zichen, Possessed: Xiao Yumei
Affability level: 100
Ye Zichen was very confused, how did he get a marriage string with Xiao Yumei, and the affability level was so high as well.
It was actually 100.
Su Yan and his was only 40.
Ye Zichen sneaked a peak towards Xiao Yumei and found that she was looking straight at him.
The gentleness in her eyes was about to melt him.
Ye Zichen quickly turned around.
Xiao Yumei had a daughter, that clearly means that she is married.
Then what was this marriage string?
The third person?
At that moment, Xiao Yumei walked towards Ye Zichen.
Due to the existence of the marriage string, Ye Zichen clearly understood that Xiao Yumei held some feelings for him, causing him to feel weird even when he was onlyspeaking.
“This ore is truly too important for older sister, you truly helped older sister a lot.”
“It is my honor to help Mei-jie.”
Xiao Yumei felt more and more moved, while the gentleness in her eyes became clearer.
Even Su Yiyun, who was on the side, felt the strangeness in the atmosphere. He immediately revealed a meaningful smile.
“Zichen, you saved Tiantian and helped older sister out so much. Older sister doesn’t know how to repay you. How about this, come to older sister’s home so that she came make you a meal personally?”
All of a sudden, Xiao Yumei’s eyes sparkled with anticipation.
