Male Wife - Chapter 64
“The winner for today….perhaps would be boss He.”
“Naturally! Does he look like an ordinary person? He is the godson of the Mu family, how can we be so brazen and think of winning? And as for Wu Shannan he’s an outsider, if he has the ability, how can he turned to be a joke?”
“Also I’m afraid boss He won’t allow others to steal the limelight1.”
“What do we have to do with limelight? It’s already good enough for you and me to show our faces.”
“Yes, just by showing our face! We are already fighting for our future!”
As the people around whispered with each other, He Yunaqi who was listening was getting excited, looking around the audience he also saw Qi Wenhai, he gave him a ridicule and mocking look with its thumb pointing down.
The meaning was very obvious:
‘Today’s event is destined to be mine. How could you even think of to fight this Lao Zi2. Now is the time for you to quit, kneel down and call this one father. The person who lose should not make their face big3.
Qi Wenhai stood up: “This —”
Xie Tingyue quickly grabbed his arm and reminded him: “Calm down.”
“This, time, definitely, must, going to, win, over, him, OK?”
Qi Wenhai gritted his teeth, expressing how angry he was.
Xie Tingyue smiled and encourages him: “As long as you don’t lose your temper, you can definitely win.”
With a sneer, Qi Wenhai sat back clenching his fist.
All influential families in the capital were busy on planning and computing, however the result were not coming out quickly as they wanted.
As time went by the people in the hall became quieter and quieter.
The two distinguish guest did not buy anything! They didn’t even glance to take a look!
Up to now, there were so many things on the stage such as jewelry, pearls, precious stones, perfumes, head ornaments and even spices, as well as many unusual but wonderful objects.
Many women should like them and wanted to own one of them, but why don’t they catch the distinguished golden eyes? They don’t even spare any time to check!
Could it because they have eaten and seen it before that they already lose interest—a noble will always be a noble, it would not be surprising to had seen many things.
But as a merchant they also had precise vision and unique taste. If they don’t even have this what’s the point of doing business?
Then there could only be one reason—
Those treasured and rare objects, it’s not that they don’t like it, it was just not interesting enough to point of wanting to spend money.
The hall was getting lifeless and dull just like the weather outside, businessmen were beginning to feel lose their faces and feel ashamed.
Those distinguished guest were waiting for a good item, if they can’t sell anything, don’t even ask for their faces!
The distinguished guests still did not response to the item on stage.
The big guys in the business field wiped their sweats, they were all looking forward to the next item—really they can’t be embarrassed again!
The new items on stage were jade ruyi4, glaze nail clipper, and gem bonsai.
The jade ruyi4 was made from warm jade, with a smooth shape, which was very suitable for the eyes, the three set of glaze nail clipper5 was elegant and small, as for the gem bonsai they are rare and delicate that every once in a while different shade of colors would reflect.
Qi Wenhai who was mad earlier, suddenly lit up his eyes and stared straight Ji furen who was behind the screen: “It seems that this time my shopkeeper is wise.”
His items came earlier than He Yuanqi.
The items he had are good but not that special.
After seeing the items, the crowd had a foreboding and knew that result would be the same as before but they couldn’t wait help but look forward to the exception.
A short sighed suddenly came from behind the screen: “This is a bit interesting.”
It was Ji furen.
The crowd was surprised.
She was now interested!
At the same time the look at Qi Wenhai’s eyes were complicated—
Why, what did he do?
However, Xie Tingyue only took one look and already understood it.
Qi Wenhai was quite thoughtful person, and was focus on the needs of his customers.
What he was eyeing was Ji furen. Ji furen was old and her passion for gemstone, and jewelry was not as high as of that a young woman.
Knowing what the other party likes, was there anything she can’t refused?
The answer: Yes.
The jade ruyi has always a fixed function—for itchiness. Rich people used jade while ordinary people used bamboo and wood, as long as the ‘ruyi’ function was achieved.
The jade ruyi Qi Wenhai took out was different from the others, despite the cold weather outside, it would not get cold rather it would be warmer and never uncomfortable to touched.
And elderly people feared cold, there limbs were not as good as they were young, most of them wanted this.
Limelight1– star of the event
Lao Zi2– I use to call to call themselves arrogantly
The person who lose should not make their face big3– the person who lose should not be arrogant
jade ruyi4- object served as a ceremonial scepter in Chinese Buddhism or a talisman symbolizing power and fortune.
glaze nail clipper5– actually the raw use the words glaze file, but I used nail clipper instead to make it more specific
