Mr. President Dotes On His Wife Crazily - Chapter 39
There were a few people standing in front of the stalls, carefully observing stones with magnifying glasses in their hands. Some equipment, such as a stone cutting machine and a grinding wheel, were placed not far away.
“This is a tricky matter. A stone can be extremely expensive. I paid one million for a stone that was in good shape. Everyone said that jadeite inside must be of good quality. But after it was cut open, it turned out that the inside was just white.
So sister, if you really can’t pay the money back, just leave me here. A brave man can bleed but never shed tears. Death is not a big deal. Once I close my eyes, I will feel nothing. If I’m lucky, maybe I will be reincarnated and come back to life eighteen years later. I’m not afraid of death, so leave me here. Don’t worry about me,” Lan Xingbo said earnestly as he tugged at Lan Xiao’s sleeve, wanting her to leave as soon as possible.
“Lan Xingbo, you have a father. He gave you all the blood and bones that are in your body. All your flesh and skin is given by your parents. You have no right to decide your own life. Besides, you are no longer a child. You are 17 years old this year. Can you be more sensible and stop making trouble? If I really can’t save you, then we can tell Dad about this. Even if he has to spend all the money that he has, he will never let you die.
Did you ever think about the people who care about you when you went to gamble? You were not born from a stone. You are not a homeless child. So, stop saying all these childish and ridiculous things. Dad and I will always be your family. You’ll never be able to get rid of us.
So from now on, shut up!” Lan Xiao said patiently, trying her best to suppress her anger.
Feeling upset, Lan Xingbo couldn’t refute his sister’s words, especially that he hadn’t been born from a stone. He didn’t dare to say anything.
Even Han Yun gulped and glanced at Lan Xiao with fear.
She felt so guilty that she didn’t dare to do anything to bring attention to herself. Her intuition told her that she’d better not provoke Lan Xiao at this time.
Lan Xiao’s aura was strong and her words were also very sharp, which was completely different from how the precious daughter of the head of Lan family was supposed to be, according to the rumors. Were the rumors nothing but lies?
With a curious look on her face, Lan Xiao stopped at a stall and stared at the stones.
This stall was relatively remote, so there were barely any customers here.
Seeing that all the stalls around him had gradually closed several deals, the stall owner couldn’t help but feel a little anxious. He looked around, wishing that he could go to one of the other stalls and bring a few customers over here.
However, like every industry, this one had a few unwritten rules. A stall owner couldn’t invite customers, nor could he compete for business.
Everything depended on the customer’s will. In short, the customer was God.
When Lan Xiao approached, the stall owner looked at her up and down. He happened to recognize the brand of the dress she was wearing. His daughter had recently asked him for money to buy a dress from the same brand.
A dress from this brand cost tens of thousands. The stall owner’s eyes lit up, and he rushed over to Lan Xiao.
“Young lady, take a good look at them. These are all new stones that just arrived last night. They are all good Lao Keng jadeites… There’s a high possibility that they contain good jadeite within them. You can’t miss them.”
“Sir, what is a Lao Keng jadeite?” Lan Xiao asked in a low voice, looking up at the stall owner in confusion.
The owner was a shrewd and chubby man who looked to be more than 40 years old. His eyes flashed with an unreadable glint, and he asked with a smile,
“Is this your first time coming here?”
Lan Xiao nodded noncommittally. Lan Xingbo looked up at the sky in despair. He was ready for a heroic sacrifice.
