Mr. President Dotes On His Wife Crazily - Chapter 31
An Yao’s cheeks turned extremely red.
As the atmosphere in the classroom intensified, Teacher Liu suddenly appeared at the door and yelled,
“An Yao, have you ignored my order? Didn’t I ask you to go to my office after school hours?”
At the sound of that, An Yao couldn’t help being frightened.
Pursing her lips, she looked at Lan Xiao with grievance before leaving in dismay with Teacher Liu.
Lan Xiao had a clear idea of what An Yao would suffer, and how it could be more despairing than death itself.
Anyway, she deserved it.
As she recalled the time when An Yao would prompt her to do those stupid things, Lan Xiao got so angry that she wanted to pick her up and give her a beat.
That woman was really annoying. Lan Xiao swore to herself that she would teach An Yao a lesson when she had a chance.
Deep in thought, Lan Xiao walked out of the classroom with the schoolbag on her back.
Outside, she saw people coming and going with their own schoolbags and books in their hands. As she watched the boys and girls around 17 or 18 years old messing around on the campus, she suddenly felt a little unreal.
Feeling the sunlight touching her skin, she looked up at the orange sunset in the west with a gentle smile.
It was so good to have a second life.
When Lan Xiao reached the school gate, a girl with yellow dyed hair in revealing clothes rushed towards her all of a sudden.
“Are you Lan Xiao? Something bad happened! Xingbo was taken away by a group of men in black…”
Lan Xiao was stunned. “Xingbo?”
Lan Xingbo was her biological brother. He was just a year younger than her and was also a student in the Ling City High School, only he was a sophomore.
For some reason, Lan Xingbo chose to live in the campus dormitory after a big quarrel with Lan Shanhua two years ago.
He hadn’t come home for a whole year. Furthermore, every time Lan Xiao tried to approach him, he mocked her and drove her away as if he didn’t want to see her at all.
Gradually, she wasn’t able to find him anymore, and neither was Lan Shanhua.
Although they went to the same high school, she seldom met him.
But now, her brother, whom she hadn’t seen for a long time, was actually taken away by some men in black?
Lan Xiao couldn’t help but look suspiciously at the rebellious girl in a revealing outfit in front of her.
“Why did those men in black take him?”
The girl lowered her head, and her lustrous, soft hair fell over her face. Remarkably thin, she wasn’t very tall either.
“Xingbo… He borrowed money from some loan shark, but he lost everything in gambling on a stone…”
“Gambling on a stone?” Lan Xiao raised her eyebrows and murmured in confusion.
The system rolled its eyes. It was a disaster to have to follow a woman who had no clue about gambling on stones.
“Miss Lan, I’ve told you that your ancestor had relied on a stone to build up a family fortune. ‘Gambling on stones’, as the name suggests, is when people use stones to gamble. Of course, these stones are not ordinary ones. These are raw jadeites, also known as ‘the king of all jade’. When jadeite is first excavated, it is covered by a layer of weathered carapace. It’s impossible to know the quality of the jadeite before it is cut. ”
“When a raw jade is dug out, it is covered by a layer of rock carapace. Since there’s no modern instrument that can detect what’s inside the rock carapace, we need to judge the quality of what’s inside by its surface. This process of judging the quality of the jade is called ‘gambling on stones’. The reason why it’s considered a gamble is that not even the most experienced specialists can be completely sure about what they see. ”
