Chapter 428 - Amazing
“A few days, maybe.” Lu Xingzhi took Jiang Yao’s hand and put it right on his thigh.
Seeing Jiang Yao’s smile, he added, “I plan to bring you around for some sightseeing since we didn’t get to do it before. There’s a charity event in the afternoon; and another much more interesting event at night, let’s check it out together.”
Jiang Yao did not catch Lu Xingzhi’s drift. On the other hand, Chen Xuyao heard the conversation and laughed out loud in excitement.
“Brother Lu, I received the invitation to the charity event too. I didn’t plan on attending but since both you and Jiang Yao are going, I’m joining too.” He gave Zhou Weiqi a push, “You?”
“Of course, why not?” Zhou Weiqi continued, “Although I’m looking forward to the event at night more.”
He looked at Lu Xingzhi through the rearview mirror and said, “Brother Lu is the man here. I don’t know where he gets his information from.”
“What’s the thing at night?” Jiang Yao was curious.
“The Purple Orchid Garden recently received a batch of new rough stones, from the tiny country of LY. Apparently, the previous batch mined from the same mountain had plenty of good quality stones. Someone spent fifty thousand on a fist-size rough stone; it had emerald in it and was sold to a jewelry merchant for five hundred thousand!” said Zhou Weiqi.
“That’s amazing!” Jiang Yao’s jaws almost dropped in awe. “Fifty thousand to five hundred thousand, that’s some serious luck right there!”
“You think it’s amazing?” Lu Xingzhi rubbed Jiang Yao’s head. He loved her childlike demeanor and her hair, which was as soft as silk.
“Of course!” Jiang Yao nodded.
Lu Xingzhi laughed faintly, although his expression was apathetic as usual. He did not agree with Jiang Yao’s praise.
“Jiang Yao, what about getting seven hundred thousand from a mere three thousand?” Chen Xuyao turned and looked at Jiang Yao. “Brother Lu did just that! We have nothing but respect for him!”
Zhou Weiqi parked the car while the rest were busy talking.
After exiting the car, Jiang Yao asked Chen Xuyao, wanting to know the story behind that amazing feat.
“Brother Lu is very low profile, but he is extremely capable. A chance encounter with stone gambling, had him learning the ins and outs after finding it exciting and interesting. I’m telling you that he is the pro here. In his junior year of university, he bought an unassuming, or some would say ugly, rock for three thousand. After purchasing, he was not in a hurry to open it. Only when Brother Liang was in urgent need of cash did he sell it for seven hundred thousand and give all that money to Brother Liang to start his business.” Chen Xuyao still had the chills talking about the feat from years ago.
Lu Xingzhi’s house at Kin City was a nice villa, renovated and designed exquisitely with complete sets of furniture. It was very clean. It seemed like someone was here earlier and had tidied it up.
