Chapter 971 - Do You Like It?
Xu Yini clearly remembered that when she had gone to order the ruby earrings from Chuin’s, the ones she liked the most had already been picked out.
Moreover, those three designs had already been ordered by the same customer.
What else had the store manager said at that time?
It was meant to be a gift for someone else. However, she had simply bought them all because she did not know which one the other person would like.
In order to save her own face, even Xu Yini herself had commented that the customer must be very concerned about and greatly valued the person that they were gifting it to, which was why they were willing to put in so much effort.
Who would have known–
That customer was Fang Yunyi?
And the person she was going to give it to…
Stiffly, Xu Yini turned her head to look at Shen Li.
It was her…
That person was Shen Li!
More importantly, Fang Yunyi’s short sentence had contained a lot of information.
Not only had she ordered the three earrings from CHUIN, but she had also bought other earrings!
To be considered comparable to CHUIN’s earrings, it was obvious that they had to be high-end jewelry of the same level or were even more expensive!
All these had been… bought for Shen Li to choose?!
At this moment, Xu Yini felt her mind go blank. Her fingers were cold, and her chest seemed to be blocked by something. Even breathing had become difficult.
Shen Li was also stunned when she heard Fang Yunyi’s words.
Earrings from CHUIN?
Among the main luxury jewelry that they made, rubies were the most famous.
The earrings that Fang Yunyi mentioned should be the ruby ones from there.
She suddenly remembered Liang Su mentioning that she had wanted to buy them for her, but they had already been ordered.
So… it was Fang Yunyi who had ordered them?
But those earrings were all priced at seven figures. It was not a small number.
Moreover, this was only the first time they had met.
Shen Li said, “Thank you, Aunt Fang, but those are too expensive–”
The first thing she started to say was a refusal.
“Ah Li, do you not like the things from the CHUIN?” Fang Yunyi suddenly asked.
Shen Li was stunned.
Fang Yunyi looked at her expression and thought that she had guessed correctly. She tried to reassure her.
“It’s okay, it’s okay. If you don’t like their things, then let’s change them. The things from Fei and Shang Li will arrive tomorrow. Do you like their things?”
Fortunately, she was prepared!
Shen Li was perplexed.
It seemed that she had been misunderstood…
“Aunt Fang, I don’t dislike them, it’s just that–”
Subconsciously, Shen Li looked at Lu Huaiyu.
When Lu Huaiyu received her pleading gaze, he finally spoke.
“Mom, we still have to look around the exhibition today. Let’s just do this tomorrow.”
When Fang Yunyi heard that they still had to wait until tomorrow, she felt a pang of pity. However, it just so happened that the other companies would also be sending the gifts over tomorrow, so she could offer Shen Li more options to choose from.
When she thought about it, it did not seem like a bad idea.
She then nodded and turned to ask for Shen Li’s opinion.
“Ah Li, what do you think?”
Shen Li did not know what to say.
How had this situation become like this… what was the difference between going today or tomorrow?
However, facing Fang Yunyi’s burning gaze, she could only nod.
“Whatever is convenient for Aunt Fang is fine. I’m fine with anything.”
Fang Yunyi saw her nodding her head as she obediently said yes. The urge to get her hands on her surged up again.
However, she immediately came to her senses in the next second.
This was only the first time!
She had to be dignified! Generous! Graceful! Measured!
Fang Yunyi barely managed to pull herself back to her senses. She moved her gaze away from the soft and tender face of the young girl in front of her with great difficulty. From the corner of her eyes, she suddenly noticed Xu Yini beside her. Only then did she remember that this person was still around.
She raised her eyebrows.
“Yini, did you just say that you prepared a gift for me?”
This was the first time Fang Yunyi had called out her name since meeting again.
After she had helped defend Shen Li, she had immediately invited Shen Li to pick some earrings.
It did not sound any different from before, but Xu Yini understood that it was different.
Under such circumstances, how was she going to say it?
How could she say that she had prepared a pair of ruby earrings from CHUIN for her?
Fang Yunyi had ordered three designs just to let Shen Li pick one that she liked!
The obvious point was that Fang Yunyi had not picked the pair that she had ordered.
In other words, that pair had not caught Fang Yunyi’s eye at all.
How could she possibly give it to her??
She forced a smile on her face and said, “Yes, I went to the shop to handmade a piece of pottery a while ago. I wanted to give it to you, but I’m not sure if you would like it.”
Shen Li’s gaze froze on her face for a moment.
At this moment, the expression on Xu Yini’s face was definitely not good.
Earlier, she had clearly said that she had ordered the red gems from CHUIN–
She had not finished her sentence, but it was not hard to guess what it was.
It seemed that the last time she had gone to the CHUIN store, she had specifically bought a gift for Fang Yunyi. Moreover, it was probably also a ruby.
However, now, she was refusing to mention it no matter what. Instead, she said that she had prepared a piece of pottery.
Of course, Fang Yunyi had also heard Xu Yini’s unfinished sentence.
She liked rubies, and many people knew it.
She could see through Xu Yini’s thoughts.
However, since Xu Yini did not mention it anymore, it would save her the trouble of referencing it.
Thinking of this, Fang Yunyi smiled. Her red lips curled up, looking extremely beautiful.
She said, “Doing handicrafts takes a lot of time and energy. Next time when you have the time, you should visit more art exhibitions. It’s pretty good.”
Xu Yini’s lips turned white.
This was no longer a matter of whether she would like the gift or not. Fang Yunyi had no intention of accepting her gift!
The reason that handmade gifts were precious was because the creator would have poured a lot of time and energy into them. But now, Fang Yunyi had implied that since she had the time, she might as well do something else.
This was a clear statement!
Xu Yini felt embarrassed and humiliated.
Hearing such words were already quite uncomfortable to hear, not to mention that they had been said in front of Shen Li.
She lowered her head slightly and clenched her fingers.
She did not understand. She really did not understand.
Fang Yunyi had only met Shen Li for the first time today, so how could she be so biased towards her?
She felt as if the air had frozen and all the oxygen had been sucked out. It was extremely uncomfortable.
At this moment, Hao Yun, who had gone to the exhibition hall before, walked back.
She first called Xu Yini, but then she was shocked when she saw Fang Yunyi.
Fang Yunyi had already returned to the Capital?
Beside her were Lu Huaiyu and Shen Li, and the expression on her daughter’s face did not look good.
Hao Yun had a vague feeling that something was wrong, but she immediately smiled and walked forward.
“Yunyi, why didn’t you tell me you were back?”
Fang Yunyi smiled politely, but there was a sense of distance between her beautiful and elegant eyebrows.
“I only just came back. I’m too busy.”
Yes, she had time to come to the art exhibition, but she did not have the time to tell her.
Hao Yun keenly sensed that the other party was treating her with a distant attitude. Her chest tightened, and she vaguely guessed why Xu Yini was reacting this way.
“I see. If there’s a chance in the future, we should get together.”
No matter which way she heard it, it sounded a little dry.
Without waiting for Fang Yunyi to answer, Hao Yun looked at Xu Yini again and said,
“Yini, I met Mr. Ronai just now. I mentioned you to him and he still remembers you. He said that he would come over later.”
