TMMTMQ – Chapter 25
The party was held at the Imperial Star Hotel, they arrived there after 40 minutes drive. There were a lot of luxury cars parked outside the hotel, and Gong Qingyao recognized some of the brand. This was also due to Lu Qianqian's frequent whispers in her ears.
Ai Xiaoyun saw Gong Qingyao looking at these cars, thinking that Gong Qingyao liked them, she said, "When you become popular in the future, you can buy these cars."
Gong Qingyao retracted her gaze, "Let's go."
Ai Xiaoyun took Gong Qingyao to the banquet hall of the hotel. The party had already begun, and many people came. Everyone was wearing formal dresses, except for Gong Qingyao. Ai Xiaoyun looked around and found his boss Gao Guangpeng, "Go, over there."
Gong Qingyao followed Ai Xiaoyun to meet Gao Guangpeng, "Gao Guangpeng, Qingyao is here."
Gao Guangpeng turned around to see Gong Qingyao. She dressed very casually, her face seemed a little unhappy. Ai Xiaoyun quickly explained to the side, "Qingyao has only returned to the Capital. I took her directly, so there was no time to unpack her luggage."
Gao Guangpeng said nothing, facing Ai Xiaoyun, he waved his hand.
Ai Xiaoyun whispered to Gong Qingyao, "The staff will be in another room, if you need something, call me, I'm right next door."
Gong Qingyao retracted her gaze on Gao Guangpeng and nodded slightly towards Ai Xiaoyun.
"Then Mr. Gao, I'll go next door first." Ai Xiaoyun finished speaking and left.
Gao Guangpeng looked back at Gong Qingyao, and after muttering she needed to keep up, he walked forward on his own. For some reason, Gao Guangpeng felt that when Gong Qingyao looked at himself just now, his whole body was exposed to this person.
When the two walked forward, someone said hello, "Oh, isn't this Mr. Gao?"
Gao Guangpeng replied, "Mr. Qiu."
Generally speaking, almost all the men present brought a woman, but most women walked side by side with the man, or half a step behind the man, but Gong Qingyao was half a meter away behind Gao Guangpeng. In addition, Gong Qingyao was dressed in casual clothes. It was really eye-catching in this kind of place where there were fancy dresses everywhere. However, even Gong Qingyao in casual clothes had very special temperaments. So for a time, their two people attracted many onlookers.
"This is?" Mr. Qiu asked.
Gao Guangpeng didn't want to say more, just said, "Our company’s artist."
Most of the people who came to the party were successful people. Observation of words and behavior is a basic skill. Upon seeing this, Mr. Qiu didn't ask any more questions, and he left for a little chat.
Gao Guangpeng took Gong Qingyao around the banquet hall two times. Mr. Qiu, who was called by Gao Guangpeng before, couldn’t hold back after seeing Gao Guangpeng several times. He said, "Mr. Gao, you are walking in circles."
Gao Guangpeng smiled awkwardly, and took Gong Qingyao to the small private room upstairs. Gong Qingyao took a look, and the room number was 203.
Unlike below, when he entered the room, Gao Guangpeng’s tone obviously injected with more enthusiasm, "Mr. Wu, this is the popular artist of our Liren, Gong Qingyao."
Gong Qingyao took a step forward and thought how could Gao Guangpeng say it so embarrassingly.
Wu Jianzhou sat in the middle of the room, "It turns out that Mr. Gao is here, please take a seat."
Gao Guangpeng took Gong Qingyao and sat down on the right side of Wu Jianzhou. In addition to this person, there were two other people in the room. Gao Guangpeng looked at Gong Qingyao and said, "Qingyao, this is President Wu, the vice president of Qingying Company."
Gong Qingyao looked at Wu Jianzhou, this person had slender and long eyes, the tip of his nose was pointed which showed that this person is selfish and shrewd. Looking at his mouth, big and thin, showed that this person values self-interest and what he said couldn’t be trusted.
Gao Guangpeng saw Gong Qingyao didn’t introduce herself for a long time, so he whispered, "Gong Qingyao?"
Wu Jianzhou didn’t care either. One of the other two people said, "Qingyao looks more beautiful than the photos on the Internet."
Wu Jianzhou introduced, "This is the director of our company who is in charge of film and television. And the other is Director Ming, who is in charge of the advertisement."
Ordinary people would show a more or less enthusiastic expression when they hear this. However, Gong Qingyao continued to sit there blankly, and Gao Guangpeng on the side said, "It turns out that it’s Director Xiang and Director Ming, hello."
Director Xiang walked directly to Gong Qingyao and sat down, "I think Qingyao is suitable for a fairy drama." Then he put his hand on Gong Qingyao. Gong Qingyao saw that the salty pig's hand was about to be placed on her leg, but then it stopped ten centimeters away from Gong Qingyao, and couldn't come down further.
Gao Guangpeng on the side turned a blind eye and continued to joke with Wu Jianzhou.
After a while, Director Xiang was still trying to put his hand on Gong Qingyao’s leg, only to see Gong Qingyao waved her hand slightly, and he was thrown to the wall behind him with a bang, and then fell down with a to the ground.
The room fell silent all at once.
Gao Guangpeng's smile froze on his face, Wu Jianzhou's expression also changed slightly, only Gong Qingyao silently withdrew her hand, pretended that nothing happened.
Director Ming raised his head and looked at Gong Qingyao, with a hint of playfulness in his eyes, "Do you want to be the heroine?"
Gong Qingyao replied straightforwardly, "No."
Director Ming and everyone: ...
How do you want to talk about this? Tell me.
Wu Jianzhou laughed twice, and then asked, "What does Qingyao like to do?"
"Metaphysics." Gong Qingyao said.
Everyone present was taken aback again.
Director Xiang who was thrown to the ground by Gong Qingyao got up and said, "Then can you count me?" It was too evil just now. Before he touched Gong Qingyao, he felt that there was a strong force pushing him out.
"You?" Gong Qingyao seemed to be a little interested, "Let's talk about it from the twelfth palaces. First of all, the pattern of the life palace is unclear, indicating that your life had ups and downs, sometimes it went smoothly but sometimes it had twists and turns. The palace of wealth is protruding. So, although you have a certain income, you can't save money. Your brother's palace is short, it means that you brothers are not harmonious. The defect in the husband and wife palace means that your husband and wife are not in harmony with each other. And there are some defects in the children's palace, it means that you have two children, but one of them died before they were born."
Hearing this, Director Xiang immediately pulled off his originally smiling face. No one in the company knew about such a private matter. He looked at Gong Qingyao.
Then he heard Gong Qingyao continued to say, "Next is the travelling palace. You are not a native of the capital. You came here when you were about twenty-five years old. The hired help palace is slanted. On the surface, you have a good relationship with your subordinates, but those who sincerely support you are rare. It’s not all together in the career palace. That is to say, your career luck is average, and probably the top of your career is now."
Director Xiang’s face darkened, what did she mean? She said that his career has come to its peak? No possible rise in the future?
Gong Qingyao didn't look at the director's face, and then said, "The property palace is not wide, so your family condition is pretty average. As for the fortune palace..." Gong Qingyao glanced at the director, "The parents' palace is dim and dull. It shows that your parents have passed away."
Director Xiang: ???
What about fortune palace? Why didn’t you continue?
Seeing the look of Director Xiang, Wu Jianzhou knew that Gong Qingyao was right. Wu Jianzhou signaled for Director Ming on the side, and Director Ming immediately understood, "Then you look at me?"
Gong Qingyao looked. She didn't even see the director’s face, "Well, let's go on to say that in addition to the twelfth house, we can also count from the five senses."
Everyone: I always felt that the person in front of me seemed to be doing metaphysical science.
"Take him as an example. The ears are close to the eyebrows, indicating that this person is very intelligent, but one is high and one is low they mean that he is often tired in this life. The eyebrows are sparse and messy which shows other people often don’t like you. The eyes show that you are easily misunderstood things and this lead to wrong actions. The mouth is unexpectedly upright, indicating that your relationship is good. As for the nose, in general they mean that the fortune is average." These people had already seen clearly when she entered the door.
Director Ming was also taken aback, then he looked at Wu Jianzhou, did not speak, but did not refute, that was to say, Gong Qingyao was right again.
Wu Jianzhou put away his smile and said, "I want to trouble Miss Gong to look at me casually."
Gong Qingyao had already seen his face, so she directly said, "In addition to the five senses and the twelve palaces, through three parts of one’s face I can also calculate the life fortune of a person." Gong Qingyao said, "Take Mr. Wu for example."
Wu Jianzhou: ...
What is meant by him as an example? Did everyone an example for this little girl?
"The upper part is full, which shows that the juvenile fortune is good, the middle part and the lower part are much shorter than the upper face, that is to say, the middle-aged and late years have a normal fortune, and the three part of the face are unevenly distributed, which shows that Mr. Wu's life also has ups and downs."
"Miss Gong's statement is too general." Wu Jianzhou said, "Isn't this suitable for most people?"
"Okay, let's be more specific." Gong Qingyao said, "You were plagued by disasters before the age of five, and you only got better at the age of five. You are the only child in the family and you were doing well in your studies. At the age of twelve, you have made a major breakthrough in your studies."
Wu Jianzhou laughed. That year, he got the second prize of Mathematical Olympiad. It was a great success at the time.
"However, when you were fifteen years old, your studies began to decline. When you were eighteen years old, you had the first relationship in your life, and you had three children with her, but none of them were born."
Wu Jianzhou's smile immediately froze. His first girlfriend had abortions in a small clinic three times. The last abortion prevented her from becoming pregnant for life, so Wu Jianzhou broke up with her.
"At the age of 20, your relationship life is even more chaotic, and your career luck is also very poor. Until the age of 25, you meet a noble person, and your career has been smooth sailing ever since." Gong Qingyao said, "But five years later, That is to say, when you were thirty years old, you encountered the first obstacle in your career. It took two years to pass through. It was a woman who helped you."
Wu Jianzhou's face was a little ugly, and there was not many people that knew these private lives of his. He didn't expect Gong Qingyao to say it all in one sitting. The most important thing was that she was right, "What else do you see?"
"I also saw that Mr. Wu had a bloody disaster in the next few days." Gong Qingyao continued.
Gao Guangpeng's face turned dark and he was about to scold Gong Qingyao. No matter who heard about this bloody disaster, they would not be in a good mood. Wu Jianzhou was the same, so obviously he didn't intend to believe this.
The atmosphere fell into an awkward silence. At this moment, there was a knock on the door, and Director Xiang immediately got up to open the door, "It turned out to be President Wei."
"Director Xiang." The person called President Wei walked in.
A pair of peach blossom eyes and thin lips, at first glance, he was a person who was sentimental but his eyes was actually yin yang eyes, meaning he was very ruthless in doing things. Before Gong Qingyao has finished looking at him, she found that behind Mr. Wei there was another person who Gong Qingyao knew, Yu Chuxue.
It turns out that this President Wei was the gold master behind Yu Chuxue. Gong Qingyao sighed inwardly. Obviously, this person was not a good person to rely on.
Mr. Wei walked into the room, and Yu Chuxue, who followed behind, also walked in.
Seeing Gao Guangpeng, Yu Chuxue immediately said, "Mr. Gao is also here." Anyone could hear it, there seemed to be a little arrogance in Yu Chuxue's tone.
"Chuxue is here." Gao Guangpeng looked a little awkward. Yu Chuxue was originally his artist, but at this moment she was brought over by the boss of another company. His expression was unnatural and strange.
Wu Jianzhou immediately got up, "Mr. Wei, please sit here." This Wei Mingyi was different from Gao Guangpeng. Wei Mingyi was the vice president of Wang Group's entertainment company, while Liren was only a small company.
Wei Mingyi was not polite, and took a seat directly in the middle of the room. Yu Chuxue proceeded to sat on his right. Wu Jianzhou sat down on Wei Mingyi's left. Seeing these three people were seated, the rest followed suit. Of course, this does not include Gong Qingyao, Gong Qingyao had never even got up when Wei Mingyi came in.
After everyone chatted, Gong Qingyao glanced at Yu Chuxue, and then a gleam of light flashed in her eyes.
A quarter of an hour later, Gao Guangpeng stood up suddenly, "Then Mr. Wei and Mr. Wu please go on with your conversation, I have something to do in the company, so I will go back first."
Wu Jianzhou heard this and said without raising his head, "Mr. Gao walks slowly. I won’t guide you away." His tone was very cold.
"Then, Mr. Wei and Mr. Wu have fun." Gao Guangpeng and Gong Qingyao walked to the door, Gong Qingyao looked back at Yu Chuxue, "You won’t go?"
Yu Chuxue showed a hint of pride, "You can't stay doesn't mean that I can't stay either."
Hearing these words, Gong Qingyao turned around and left. After the two of them left, Wei Mingyi also got up to leave.
Wu Jianzhou got up and sent Wei Mingyi to the door before returning to his seat. Soon there were only Wu Jianzhou, Director Xiang, Director Ming and Yu Chuxue in the whole room. Wu Jianzhou immediately put away his serious expression just now, revealing a wretched expression, he beckoned to Yu Chuxue, "Chuxue, right?"
"Yes." Yu Chuxue sat down next to Wu Jianzhou, "Mr. Wu can always call me Xiaoxue."
"Xiaoxue." Wu Jianzhou touched Yu Chuxue thigh, "Director Ning has a play recently. I think the female third role in it are suitable for you."
A hint of surprise flashed in Yu Chuxue's eyes, but she said, "Why is it a female third? Second."
Wu Jianzhou laughed, and reached under Yu Chuxue's skirt with his right hand, "It depends on how you perform today."
"Oh, Mr. Wu, you can really joke." Yu Chuxue knew Mr. Wu. Wei Mingyi made it clear what Wu Jianzhou was going to do when he brought her here. As long as she stayed with Wu Jianzhou for one night, both sides would benefit.
When Yu Chuxue thought about this, most of the clothes on her body were already taken by Wu Jianzhou, "Mr. Wu, what are you doing in such a hurry?"
"Aren't you called Xiaoxue, let me see if your skin is the same as snow." Wu Jianzhou stripped Yu Chuxue's clothes clean.
Halfway through, Wu Jianzhou possessed and pressed Yu Chuxue's body, and after a while, there were bursts of gasping and crying from the room.
Meanwhile, Gao Guangpeng and Gong Qingyao took the elevator to the underground parking lot. Gao Guangpeng said to Gong Qingyao, "I will take you back."
"No need." Gong Qingyao refused and walked towards the exit.
Gao Guangpeng looked at Gong Qingyao's figure, hesitated several times, and finally sat in the car silently, and then started the car after a while.
After walking for some distance, Gong Qingyao stopped her steps, and her cold voice echoed in the parking lot, "Come out."
A young man walked out behind her. Even at night, his handsome face was very eye-catching, "I didn’t think it was really you." The first time he saw Gong Qingyao, her makeup was really scary that night, so he did not expect her to be this good-looking once she removed that makeup.
Gong Qingyao turned back, "You need something?"
"Thank you for the last time." The young man was Qin Ze.
Generally speaking, after seeing Qin Ze, women would take the initiative to rush over. Gong Qingyao was not an ordinary woman, so she said coldly, "No problem." Then she turned and left without any hesitation.
Qin Ze stretched out his right hand and touched the tip of his nose. It was the first time he met a woman who didn't pay any attention to him.
After Gong Qingyao left, Qin Ze also turned and walked back. A young man walked out from behind the pillar and winked at Qin Ze, "This woman can ignore the charm of our second young master, but then again, who is she? Huh?"
Qin Ze did not answer, but said, "Check, who is in room 203 on the second floor today."
"I'm not your private detective."
"I believe you can, Xiao Yuyu!" Qin Ze shouted.
The person called Xiaoyuyu was immediately irritable, "Okay, you Qin Ze, believe it or not, I will beat you sooner or later."
Back home, Gong Qingyao had a good night's sleep, woke up the next day, and continued to refine the thousand years old cold iron. It's just a pity that the capital lacked spiritual energy, otherwise the speed of cultivation would be faster.
After completing the practice, Gong Qingyao went out to buy some ingredients and came back to make a meal by herself. After eating, she was about to go out, but she received a call from Ai Xiaoyun, "Qingyao, are you up yet? I have something to ask you. "
"I’m up." Gong Qingyao looked at the time, nine o'clock in the morning. She would never sleep until nine o'clock.
"Then wait for me, I will come to your house right away." Ai Xiaoyun said.
Gong Qingyao put down her bag, sat back on the sofa, then turned on her mobile phone, found the hottest TV now and started watching. Lu Qianqian said that if she didn’t know how to act, she could watch TV shows and imitate how the actors were acting.
After watching a TV series, Ai Xiaoyun came. As soon as she entered the door, Ai Xiaoyun said very happily, "Dangdangdang, guess what I brought?"
"What?" Gong Qingyao looked calm.
Ai Xiaoyun sat aside, "I feel that even if I tell you that you win the movie queen title, you will not be happy."
Gong Qingyao retorted, "No, I will be happy." Her expression was quite serious, winning meant she had fulfilled the long-cherished wish of the original owner.
Ai Xiaoyun didn't believe it at all. She took out three documents, "There are three advertisements here. Mr. Gao called up early in the morning, saying that he wanted you to choose whatever you want."
Gong Qingyao took the documents.
Ai Xiaoyun asked curiously, "Did Mr. Gao very happy yesterday?" Three advertisements, what a luxury this were.
Gong Qingyao thought that these announcements were probably Gao Guangpeng's apologies. After all, Gao Guangpeng took her to Room 203, and was premeditated. As for why it changed in the end, she had to ask Gao Guangpeng himself.
Of these three ads, one was for toothpaste, one was for headphones, and the other was for sanitary napkins. Gong Qingyao removed the sanitary napkin advertisement without even thinking about it.
Ai Xiaoyun saw Gong Qingyao put down the sanitary napkin advertisement, and immediately said, "Don't underestimate this sanitary napkin advertisement. The last endorsert was Sun Panqiao!" Sun Panqiao's popularity and Jiang Xiaonan from their company were almost the same. She could also be regarded as a well-known artist.
Gong Qingyao picked up the headphone advertisement and said, "Choose this." Ai Xiaoyun couldn't help holding his forehead."
Luer headphones were really good before, but their sales had worsened in recent years. The annual advertisements were also very long, what if they went bankrupt one of these days?" If so, it would be their company's advantages, but Ai Xiaoyun didn't say that. "Toothpaste is better than this."
"It won’t," Gong Qingyao said.
Ai Xiaoyun did not react for a while, "What won't?"
Gong Qingyao said, "Just choose this."
Ai Xiaoyun reacted after a while, Gong Qingyao was so sure that Luer Company would not go bankrupt. Ai Xiaoyun looked at Gong Qingyao, "You can also figure something like this out?"
"Yeah." Gong Qingyao said.
"Okay!" Ai Xiaoyun immediately changed her tone, "Then let's choose this."
After the two agreed on the advertisement, Ai Xiaoyun glanced around Gong Qingyao's house, and found something different when she entered the house just now. She took a closer look, she found that the house was bright and tidy, "The house has changed a lot."
"I like it." Ai Xiaoyun said, "This way it looks more like home."
Ai Xiaoyun took the other two advertisement documents and stuffed them into her bag. The two advertisements would be discussed with the company later to see if they can be reserved for her other artists. Ai Xiaoyun picked up her phone and glanced at it, "It’s not too early, so why don’t we go out together to have lunch?"
Ai Xiaoyun was about to put her mobile phone in her bag, but the mobile phone rang, "Why is
Yu Chuxue calling me now." Ai Xiaoyun connected the phone and listened to the call.
There was a very weak voice over there, "Xiaoyun, come and save me. At 203 of the Imperial Star Hotel, I'm going to die."
"What?" Ai Xiaoyun was a little confused.
"Come and save me." After speaking, there was a loud door knock coming from the phone, and then Yu Chuxue shouted in fear, "No, no, I beg you."
Ai Xiaoyun knew something was wrong and she was concerned, "Qingyao, I'm afraid I cannot go to lunch with you. I have to go to the Imperial Star Hotel."
Gong Qingyao put down the document, "No, I will come with you."
If Yu Chuxue called in normal situation, Gong Qingyao would definitely not care. But when Yu Chuxue came yesterday, Gong Qingyao’s heavenly eyes opened. She saw what happened in Room 203 later, so Gong Qingyao asked if Yu Chuxue would also left before she went out. If Yu Chuxue chose not to leave, there was nothing she could say.
But now that Ai Xiaoyun was going, Gong Qingyao had to accompany her. After all, in room 203 where Yu Chuxue was now, there were more than three men.
Ai Xiaoyun nodded. With Gong Qingyao coming together, she wouldn't be so flustered, "I don't know what happened, Chuxue's voice was a bit weak just now." Also, when Yu Chuxue called, her voice was full of fear.
After Ai Xiaoyun thought again, "Yu Chuxue also went to the Imperial Star Hotel yesterday?"
"Well, when Mr. Gao and I left room 203, she insisted on staying." Gong Qingyao said.
Speaking of which, Ai Xiaoyun couldn't understand what happened. She drove to the maximum speed and they soon reached Imperial Star Hotel.
At this time, the banquet hall of the Imperial Star Hotel was not as lively as yesterday, on the contrary, it was very deserted, with tables and chairs scattered on the side. When the two went upstairs, Ai Xiaoyun took a deep breath and knocked on the door.
It took a long time for someone to come over and open a gap in the door. He said impatiently, "What do you want?"
Through the gap, they could hear some slight calls for help.
Seeing the other party's disheveled clothes, Ai Xiaoyun plucked up the courage and said, "My Chuxue has a schedule in the afternoon, so I'm here to pick her up."
The man slammed the door shut, and Ai Xiaoyun was taken aback.
The locked door blocked all the sounds inside. Ai Xiaoyun squeezed her hands, "What can we do?" After thinking about it, Ai Xiaoyun knocked on the door again.
The person who opened the door was very impatient, "Why, do you want to come in too? That's OK, I will fulfill you." Then he pulled Ai Xiaoyun into the room.
Ai Xiaoyun yelled in shock, "What are you going to do? Let go!"
Gong Qingyao stepped forward and twisted the man's hand. They heard a crack, which seemed to be the sound of a broken bone.
Then they heard a cry, "Ahhh, my hand is broken."
Gong Qingyao released her hand, and the man slipped to the ground like a puddle.
Ai Xiaoyun quickly stood behind Gong Qingyao in fright, "Close the door." A cold voice sounded from Gong Qingyao.
"Oh, okay." Ai Xiaoyun quickly closed the door.
In addition to the three men yesterday, there was another person in the room, which meant there were four men in total. At this moment, they were all naked, and the lonely Yu Chuxue was lying on the bed. There were bruises all over her body and she looked quite tragic.
Gong Qingyao pulled down the curtain and threw it on Yu Chuxue.
"It's you again?" Wu Jianzhou licked his lower lip, "You came here by yourself, then we..."
Without waiting for him to talk nonsense, Gong Qingyao stepped forward, and in the blink of an eye, the three men fell to the ground. .
Ai Xiaoyun hurried over to help Yu Chuxue up, "Can you still walk?"
Yu Chuxue's legs kept shaking, she sobbed and shook her head.
Ai Xiaoyun took out her cell phone, "I'll call the police first."
Yu Chuxue grabbed Ai Xiaoyun's cell phone, "Don't call the police."
Ai Xiaoyun was a little helpless, "Okay, let's go to the hospital first."
Ai Xiaoyun helped Yu Chuxue to the car. Gong Qingyao didn't plan to follow them to the hospital. Yu Chuxue looked like this. It was impossible to recover for at least ten days to a half month. The most important thing was that the road Yu Chuxue had walked was her own choice. So, she had to bear its consequences.
Gong Qingyao didn't go to the hospital with Ai Xiaoyun. After coming out of the Imperial Star Hotel, Gong Qingyao randomly found a restaurant on the side of the road and ordered a bowl of noodles. Just after eating, Ai Xiaoyun's phone call came over, "I took her for an examination just now, and the doctor said that she suffered some serious injuries and needs to stay in bed for a while."
Ai Xiaoyun stopped there and then said, "I don’t understand why she did this. Now that she is injured, will she be able to receive a good movie as the heroine? I have always hoped that my artists can be diligent and work hard. Strength will always have a place in showbiz, don't take these crooked roads." Ai Xiaoyun said for a long time, "After talking so much, I forgot to ask you, have you eaten?"
"Just finished eating." Gong Qingyao said.
"Oh well, I will invite you to dinner another day." Ai Xiaoyun said with a hint of apology. She was going to invite Gong Qingyao to dinner, but was delayed by Yu Chuxue's affairs.
Gong Qingyao knew that Ai Xiaoyun at the moment just needed a person to talk to, "Okay."
"For the advertisement, I will contact you after I have contacted the company." Ai Xiaoyun had said so much to Gong Qingyao, and she felt much better. She fancied the job of an artists’ agent before she came to the show business. She always believed that she could reach the top with her own strength, but today, her artists had done such a thing, which made her feel a little bit uncomfortable."
"Then I’ll go first."
"Yeah." Gong Qingyao hung up the phone.
There was half a piece of black sandalwood left last time. She could make another small wooden sign for body protection. Gong Qingyao planned to sell it at a jade shop today. After all, these body protectors would definitely be used for fortune-telling in the future. Better quality jade could also be used as a low-level magic weapon.
Gong Qingyao reached out and stopped a taxi, saying that she wanted to go to the nearest jade shop.
When the driver heard that Gong Qingyao was going to a jade shop, he said, "I suggest you go directly to Jade Plaza. There are not only finished products, but also a lot of rough stones."
Hearing rough jade stone, Gong Qingyao's eyes lit up. "Okay, let's go to Jade Plaza." She thought it was the same as her previous life, where she needed to dig the rough stone by herself, but she didn't expect people to sell it directly now.
The driver thought Gong Qingyao had come from other city, so he introduced very enthusiastically, "This plaza is very big, and most of the jade products are sold readymade. However, rough stones are cheaper than these readymade products. You can buy them and process them yourself. There is a processing factory in front of the plaza. When my relative’s child got married, he bought jade there, and then processed it. It was much cheaper than in the shop."
It happened to be a red light when the driver stopped the car and said, "The one who sells rough stone is on the last few rows of the plaza, the largest is Jinyu shop, which has several floors, but you need to be a member or accompanied by a member to get in. In addition to this shop, there are several good ones. It is said that the highest rate of jade production is Bailan shop, and ah, this Bailan shop does not require membership, anyone can enter. So although the Jinyu shop is the largest, the Bailan shop is where everyone visits the most. "
Gong Qingyao understood.
Soon after arriving at Jade Plaza, Gong Qingyao paid the money and said, "Don’t drive to the east today."
The driver was stunned, what did this mean? But before he could ask, Gong Qingyao figure was gone.
Gong Qingyao went straight to the shop selling rough stones behind. She couldn't enter the Jinyu shop at the moment, so she planned to go to the Bailan shop first.
Sure enough, there were a lot of people in the Bailan shop, and the staffs here were obviously not enough, so after Gong Qingyao entered the door, no one came to help her, so Gong Qingyao strolled around by herself.
The Bailan shop has two floors. The stones on the first floor were basically left on the ground at random, and the prices were not exactly the same, but they were basically sold at a certain price range. The stone prices on the second floor were much more expensive. Most of them were sold by the catty, and more than half of the stones there were placed in special cabinets. Gong Qingyao only started to choose stones after visiting both floors.
There were carts placed in each corner of the upper and lower floors of the store. They were specially designed for customers to put the selected rough stones. Gong Qingyao pushed one. Although a small part of the rough stones on the second floor were sold at a global price, they were quite expensive. The cheapest one was sold at 10,000 yuan.
Gong Qingyao chose two stones with global price, plus one weighed by the catty. The three add up to almost 150,000. After the selection, Gong Qingyao went downstairs to choose more stones.
Gong Qingyao has an outstanding temperament. When she came in, she attracted a lot of people's attention. This people saw her choosing stones like buying vegetables. She didn't even look at the stone carefully. She picked them up and put them in the cart. Many customers stopped their hand and looked at her.
Zheng Deyi saw this scene when he returned after sending customer out, and immediately walked up, "Hello miss, I am Zheng Deyi the staff here, and let me push this cart for you."
Gong Qingyao handed the cart to him and continued to choose stone, after a long time, she said, "I’m done." The cart at this moment was already full of stones.
Zheng Deyi was a little unsure whether Gong Qingyao would really bought it or was playing around, "Should we settle the payment now?
"Hmm." Gong Qingyao replied.
Zheng Deyi pushed the cart down to the cashier, and several cashier ladies made calculations. After a while, he heard the cashier said, "These rough stones add up to 256,700 yuan."
Although the Bailan shop has many rough stones, they were quite expensive. Very few people buy so many stones at once. Zheng Deyi asked again, "Do you want them all?"
"Yeah." Gong Qingyao handed her card to the lady. The cashier quickly swiped the card and heard the machine process the payment and printed the receipt, Zheng Deyi knew that the order was completed.
The cashier lady said very politely, "Here is your card and please be reminded that once the rough stone is sold, we do not accept returns or exchange."
Zheng Deyi glanced at Gong Qingyao and saw that the other party did not regret it. Although the transaction volume of this business was not much, if every business was as fast as this, it would be different. "We can help you open these stones for free."
Speaking of the machine that opened the stone, generally speaking, if people bought a rough stone, they could pay a few hundred yuan to ask a master to help open it, but Gong Qingyao's approach today was really unusual, Zheng Deyi forfeited the stone opening cost for Gong Qingyao.
Gong Qingyao glanced at the machine, "Can I cut it by myself?"
Zheng Deyi was taken aback, and then said, "Sure." Zheng Deyi took Gong Qingyao to the machine. There were two machines to opened stones there, and Zheng Deyi motioned for one of the master to get up first, Gong Qingyao didn't immediately sit down on that empty chair, but went behind the other master who was cutting a stone first. She watched carefully how the person finished cutting a stone.
Only then did Zheng Deyi realized that Gong Qingyao never used this machine before. Just as he was about to say something, he saw Gong Qingyao walking to the seat and sat down. She then took a small stone from the cart.
Zheng Deyi on the side said, "I suggest you choose a cheap stone to try." This small stone was worth several thousand yuan.
Gong Qingyao, didn't plan to open the cheapest stone now. After all, the stone was extraordinary. This stone she held currently was the worst of all she bought. She picked this because she had to try the machine first and familiarized herself.
Zheng Deyi saw that Gong Qingyao had her own thoughts, so he didn't say much. Originally he planned to let the master to guide her, but found that Gong Qingyao's first cut had already gone down. It showed more stone inside after cutting.
It seemed that this stone only has jade on the outside of the stone, which was a loss, Zheng Deyi thought.
Gong Qingyao made two more cut, all of which opened more stones.
The master on the side couldn't help saying, "This rough stone is estimated to be jade only on the top layer."
Gong Qingyao didn't say a word, dropped the fourth cut, and green appeared in cross section. The three cut just now were just Gong Qingyao's first try. After she mastered the use of the machine, Gong Qingyao naturally knew where to cut next.
The master on the side was stunned, "There is jade in it?" Even Zheng Deyi was a little sluggish.
The guests who had been watching from a distance, heard the cutting master’s words, and immediately gathered around. Some even started to discuss.
"This little girl is amazing, there really is jade in it."
"I saw this stone at first. I would have bought it if I knew."
"You don't have that fortune."
Gong Qingyao didn't care about the surrounding situation and concentrated on opening the stone in front of her, and in a while, it was finished.
As the rough stone opened, Zheng Deyi was a little surprised. Jade was divided into two type, hard and soft. The most representative of the hard type was jadeite. Jadeite was divided into four levels of ABCD, where A was the best and D was the worst. .
A-grade jade was divided into several more grades, and this stone just opened worth at least tens of thousands yuan. Unexpectedly, this little girl was a connoisseur. Just after Zheng Deyi thought about this, he found that Gong Qingyao had started to open another jade, the stone of which seemed better than before.
Zheng Deyi was not surprised, but shocked, this, this stone could produce such a good jade?
"My God, what is the value of this jade?"
"It is estimated to be more than one hundred thousand."
"Wow, this little girl is amazing."
"Don't say it, see her opening the third one."
Everyone held their breaths. The third stone was a bit irregular, so Gong Qingyao cut off a small piece with the machine.
Someone next to her immediately said, "If I was her I would have let the master cut directly, but that would have cost me so much."
"Yes, this jade is better than the previous two materials."
The master on the side did not speak. To be honest, if she asked him to cut just now, he probably would cut off a big piece.
Gong Qingyao tried to make cut three times, but the machine still didn't work. As it won't work, if it went on like this, a lot of jade would be wasted. Gong Qingyao stood up and said to Zheng Deyi, "These help me wrap the jade."
The corner of Zheng Deyi's mouth twitched. He could clearly see that this girl was a little disgusted with these machines. Zheng Deyi quickly arranged for the staff to wrap the stones, "Can you sell these three jade?"
"You want to buy?" Gong Qingyao asked.
In fact, Zheng Deyi had a lot of jade in his hand, and there were also a lot of rough stones, but he wanted to buy jade now, just to made friends with Gong Qingyao, "Well, I will calculate according to the market price, what do you think?"

Heavens I'm so thankful this stone cutting did not last 5+ chapters. Thank you for the chapters!ReplyDelete
(TL i tried MTL-ing this story because it was too good but I only lasted 2 chapters before my brain turned to mush. I appreciate your sacrifice💜)
it really bothers me that qingyao didn't try harder to convince chuxue to leave. actually she didn't even bother convincing her at all, she just said 'aren't you leaving too?' as if that would help???? she doesn't even go to the usual length of saying 'don't do [this]' or 'stay away from [that]' like.... idk it just leaves such a bad taste in my mouth :/ especially when afterwards she mentioned that chuxue had to live with the consequences of the choices she made, which is just a horrendous mentality to have in regards to a r*pe victim like hello?????? even xiaoyun afterwards for some reason just felt disappointed that chuxue went down this road instead of working hard like girl she's in the hospital what about showing some sympathy???????ReplyDelete
i feel like i can sense clearly that the author looked at this and thought chuxue deserved it, that's why xiaoyun reacted the way she did and why qingyao didn't try harder to save her from her situation. and i'm just :/ sad :/ face slapping is fine and all but i'm never going to think anyone deserves to r*ped
GQY doesn’t seem to be the type to force anyone to do anything, even in their best interest. She asked if she was going to leave (and I think everyone knew what the implications of that were), and got an arrogant response in return, then left it at that. There’s only so much you can do to help an adult that is determined on self destructive choices. IMO it seemed that Chuxue actually did consent originally. It says “ Wei Mingyi made it clear what Wu Jianzhou was going to do when he brought her here. As long as she stayed with Wu Jianzhou for one night, both sides would benefit.” But I think it ended up being more than anticipated, and she regretted it and then at that point it stopped being consensual. I would ignore the part about her crying and bruises being proof of anything, because quite frankly in CN 90% of all consensual regular s*x scenes sound horrifically painful for the woman - their waist is hurt, bruises everywhere, they were crying, and can’t move the next day. I dunno what is going on in China, but s*x does not sound fun. I don’t think anyone *deserves* r*pe, and I don’t think that’s what the author was saying. I think the point was that there were consequences to a situation she walked into with eyes wide open - she didn’t even want to call the police later, probably partially because she was still expecting those benefits.. So in her case, she was attempting to take shortcuts in her career by trading her body, and the fact that it went horribly was *not her fault* but still not exactly unexpected. No one gloated or shoved her situation in her face; they rescued her, offered to call the police, took her to the hospital, then respected her decision. Maybe they could be sympathetic, but she’s not nice to them, they aren’t her friends, and I don’t think she even wants their sympathy.Delete
To be honest I think both comments are true.Delete
A. Maybe she should've tried harder to convince her or at least warn her it's gonna be 4 ppl. But this author has a tendency to write cold hearted characters. I'm not surprised she didn't try that hard. I think she should've at least told her that it was gonna be a gang b.
B. I think the second comment is valid. YC is an adult and she did consent to spending the night with 1 guy I'm pretty sure. But also she did get raped because she didn't consent to 3 others I'm pretty sure. I won't say she didn't want to go to the police bc she consented. It's just that she probably values her success or fears retribution. She's already dipped into this water, and since she got raped for it the perhaps she wants to get the most out of it. I highly doubt the author wrote her with that much depth, but that's the consideration I would have for her imo. In that case, you could say the other characters are being judgy but they also accepted it was her decision to not go to the police. I won't say it equivalents to her consenting to what happened btw.
So yea I think the mc is honestly kinda cold-hearted but it's probably bc they aren't friends. But tbh they aren't enemies either at this point so it was a bit too cold hearted for the mc not to warn YC with at least another sentence ....
It is* equivalent* to YC* (corrections *)Delete
to the comment complaining about GQY's action let me remind you that YC didn't like GQY do you think she will believe her even GQY had tried?Delete
Dude imagine getting precog about that. Homie dats scary. She saw that in HD in her mind.ReplyDelete
