Lu Mian paused with her lips pursed. The burger in her hand no longer smelled good.
She dropped a small portion of the leftover burger on her plate. She held a napkin between her fingers, stood up and smiled that dandy smile of hers. “Okay!”
Her cell phone vibrated as she was stepping out of the living room. She had received an expected email.
An invitation from the Su family?
Should I go…
While she stopped to consider, Fu Man had already caught up to her from behind. She felt guilty by Lu Mian’s sudden departure. She suppressed her frustration and asked cautiously, “Mianmian, where are you going now?”
“Good. I am taking Xinnuan to the mall to buy her gown; we can buy yours if you come too.”
She eyed Lu Mian’s old and somewhat short jeans, and admitted that she had failed as a mother.
Without waiting for Lu Mian to reply, Lu Xinnuan came running out too. “Mom, Sister, I finished eating. Let’s go now!”
At the central shopping street of Wu City.
The three women, two in front and one behind, entered a middle-end shopping mall.
Fu Man and Lu Xinnuan had their mother-daughter unique shopping habits. Lu Mian wasn’t used to it so she did not intend to participate and simply followed them slowly and leisurely. She wasn’t accompanying them; she just suddenly remembered that she wanted to buy something.
In front of the jewelry counter on the first floor, she stopped. A hair accessory had caught her attention.
A simple willow-leaf hair clip, with three blue diamonds in the center, surrounded by fine and exquisite crushed diamonds.
There was a price tag underneath the hair clip, 3 followed by 5 zeros.
The lady at the counter smiled professionally. “Miss, please…”
She didn’t know when Lu Xinnuan and Fu Man had backtracked to her. They didn’t let her finish talking. After saying ‘sorry’ several times, all three of them retreated from the counter for more than 10 meters.
Fu Man sounded helpless as she pulled Lu Mian with her.
“Mianmian, we came to buy clothes today. Let’s not look at anything else.”
Lu Xinnuan lowered her gaze. “Mom, I don’t have to buy any clothes if Sister likes it. You can buy her more things.”
“Actually, I…” Lu Mian had her hands on a card in her pocket, and she was about to take it out. However, what Fu Man said next changed her mind.
“Absolutely not! You have to go to the Su family tomorrow. We don’t have to buy for your sister, but you definitely need to.”
Lu Mian was so shocked that she took a huge step back.
She shoved the card back into her pocket. With a frivolous smile on her face, she said jokingly, “I’m not buying, just taking a look.”
With that, she turned and walked back to the counter. She waved at them with her back facing them. “You guys go ahead. You don’t have to buy me anything.”
Her back looked aloof and distant.
All Fu Man did was stare at her back. She said nothing and walked away with heavy steps with Lu Xinnuan.
Once they were far away, Lu Mian regained her composure. She looked directly at the lady at the counter and blinked. “Please wrap this up for me.”
Stunned, the lady replied unprofessionally, “What?”
She was instantly mesmerized by Lu Mian’s pure and beautiful smile as she nodded, blushing. “Sure, Miss. Just a moment. This hair clip is perfect for you…”
“I’m not wearing it. It’s a gift.” She smiled. “Please wrap it more delicately.”
A matte black card was handed out and the lady at the counter accepted with two shaking hands.
She really didn’t understand why a beautiful girl with a high-end black card would appear in that scene just now.
She had seen many kinds of customers working as a salesperson behind the counter.
Customers who were rich had spent at their store with ease and generosity whereas those with an average spending would usually wear an uncertain look in their eyes. As for those two women earlier, they definitely didn’t have the means to step into their store.
This beautiful girl before her naturally had more spending power than those in the first category.
She guessed that when those two women had headed upstairs to the general store to do their shopping, they never expected this girl to spend 300,000 just like that.
However, she also saw that this girl was clearly going to show them her black card…
