I Can See Probability - Chapter 26

“Uncle Lu gave me this new wine. It’s good, fragrant, sweet, and smooth. I guess only the Lafite wine from Bordeaux Lafite Estate has this kind of taste because Lafite’s taste is pure and special. That’s because of its unique geographical location and micro-climate, which created this world-famous wine.”
“In this glass of wine, I also tasted the strong sunshine sweetness. I think it must be a good year to have been produced. Well, it’s a little sour, so this PH value should be about 3.9. The alcohol content is about 13%.”
“But the taste is still young, but the taste is very good, so, more in line with the year, it should only be 2003.”
“In 2003, in Bordeaux, France, was a golden year for winemaking. Therefore, the wines produced that year were all very collectible. Now, each bottle is about 20,000 yuan.”
“Uncle Lu, I wonder if my guess is right?” Chen Jing said with a smile. His tone was calm and soothing.
After Lu Jingtong heard this, he paused for a few seconds. Then, he couldn’t help but clap his hands.
“You’re indeed amazing,” he praised.
“Wow, was it right again?” Lu Yanyan was so surprised that she almost jumped up.
Today, she was especially happy and lively. This was very different from the seriousness she had shown in school in the past.
“Was it right again?” Jiang Wenxuan had a black question mark on his face. He couldn’t understand how this country bumpkin, Chen Jing, knew about alcohol?
Chen Jing sat up straight. His expression was neither servile nor overbearing.
Originally, he did not need to act like this. However, there were actually two reasons why he did not hide it.
The first reason was that he wanted to strike down the insufferably arrogant Jiang Wenxuan again.
The second reason was that he always felt that there were some doubts behind Lu Jingtong’s polite praise.
That was why he showed this move.
He had a sense of propriety about the ‘abilities’ he displayed. He said what he should say and didn’t say anything that he shouldn’t.
Therefore, it wasn’t particularly unbelievable.
There were indeed some people in this world who had a very keen sense of taste.
There was also a specialized profession, which was a wine taster that Lu Jingtong had mentioned before.
In front of a professional wine taster, he was completely capable of doing this.
However, for such an ability to be placed on an 18-year-old high school student, this was naturally a little surprising.
“Yanyan, does this classmate of yours come from a wine business?”
Foreign red wine was considered a high-end industry in the mainland. The profits were extremely high.
So, it was only now that Lu Jingtong truly began to be interested in Chen Jing.
His previous politeness was only superficial.
Now that Chen Jing had displayed his special ability, Lu Jingtong felt that he had the right to let him reacquaint himself with him.
“His family is…” Lu Yanyan knew that Chen Jing’s family owned a restaurant, but she also knew that her father was arrogant, so if she were to be honest, she might not give her father a very good impression. So, she thought of changing the words to beautify it.
A hotel owner?
But before she could say it, Chen Jing had already answered directly, “My family is very ordinary. It’s just a restaurant. It’s an ordinary Chinese restaurant.”
“My grandfather liked to drink a lot back then, so there was a lot of wine at home. And under his influence, I only knew a little about wine. The guess just now was actually just a coincidence. If you had changed to some other alcohol, I might not have been able to taste it.”
“I see.” When Lu Jingtong heard that his family actually owned a restaurant, the interest that he had initially developed immediately faded away.
“Dad.” Lu Yanyan looked at the slight change in expression on Lu Jingtong’s face and couldn’t help but look a little resentful. She knew that after her father found out the truth, he would… look down on Chen Jing a little.
Lu Jingtong was still polite. He smiled and patted Lu Yanyan’s head. “Not bad. You guys have fun. Don’t stand on ceremony when it comes to food and drinks. I still have friends over there who want to greet me, so I’ll go over first.”
He then turned to Jiang Wenxuan and said, “Wenxuan, you’re not considered a guest anymore. On your classmates’ side, it’s all thanks to you helping Yanyan a little more and greeting her a little more.”
“Sure, Uncle Lu. Why are you being so polite with me?” Jiang Wenxuan patted his chest with a smile.
Jiang Wenxuan’s family also owned a large company. He and Lu Yanyan could be considered to be of equal status.
But Chen Jing, whose family only owned a restaurant, was not on the same level at all.
After Lu Jingtong said that, he left.
Chen Jing didn’t care whether Lu Jingtong looked down on him or not. Seeing him leave, he continued eating.
“Chen Jing, I didn’t expect you to be so versatile. In the past three years of high school, I feel like I’ve never really known you.”
After her father left, Lu Yanyan immediately changed the topic to ease the atmosphere.
In this aspect, she appeared much more mature than many girls her age.
Chen Jing shrugged and did not express anything.
Jiang Wenxuan chuckled and suddenly said, “Speaking of which, having this ability is indeed not bad. If he doesn’t get into a good university in the future, he can become a bartender.”
“…” Lu Yanyan could not help but roll her eyes at him.
Jiang Wenxuan quickly turned his head and pretended not to see.
But Chen Jing laughed and then stood up. He said, “There’s nothing wrong with being a bartender. Alright, the food is almost all eaten. Lu Yanyan, I wish you a happy birthday and everlasting youth. I won’t be going to the karaoke later. I still have something to do at home. I have to leave first.”
“Chen Jing…” Lu Yanyan wanted to say something but stopped herself.
“Oh, right. I almost forgot about your birthday present.”
Chen Jing scratched his head and took out a small pink gift box from his body apologetically. He stuffed it into her hand. “It’s cheap. Don’t mind it.”
With that said, he smiled and waved his hand. He walked through the lively hotel lobby alone and walked out.
Lu Yanyan watched him leave until he was completely gone. She bit her lips tightly.
Looking at the small pink gift box in her hand, she hesitated for a moment. Then, she carefully opened it.
She saw a red coral hair clip inside.
“Hehe, it’s really cheap. This Chen Jing is too stingy. This coral hair clip looks like it’s at most ten yuan,” Jiang Wenxuan commented from the side.
“It’s none of your business. I like it.” Lu Yanyan glared at him before carefully putting away the coral hair clip. She held it in her hand.
Jiang Wenxuan’s IQ was not low, but in terms of EQ, he had probably always been negative.

At this moment, he also acted like he was presenting a treasure. He took out a gift box and said, “Yanyan, I have a gift for you as well. I picked it out after a long time. Take a look.”
He thought that once this gift was revealed, Chen Jing’s cheap hairpin would not even need to look at it.
However, before he could open the gift box, Lu Yanyan had already lost interest. She turned around and left. “You can just leave it on the table over there.”
Jiang Wenxuan’s enthusiasm was only directed at her back.
