Chapter 135: Comparison
"The gift earlier was to honor Uncle as a person of the younger generation. Today is Nuannuan's big day, and it's worth celebrating. Naturally, a special gift had to be prepared.
"This gentleman was right, these three jade plates were the treasures of the Hall of Mingyu under the Gu Family - the Auspicious Luck Set. I initially fancied it, so I kept it for myself. Today is coincidentally Nuannuan's grabd banquet, and I felt that this Auspicious Luck Set would suit her very well, so I brought it here."
In reality, the gift that he gave Zhong Kuijun when he first came in was originally intended for Zhong Nuannuan, and this gift had been specially prepared by his father to help him hook up with Zhong Qianqian.
However, his enemy was too strong, and in order to not lose face in front of beautiful women, he was forced to use this gift to increase his social status in front of the guests.
Nevertheless, he believed that Zhong Nuannuan would definitely be on his side in the future after receiving this gift.
Although Aiden was richer than him, he would definitely never be so generous toward Zhong Nuannuan.
"Nuannuan, quickly thank Brother Mingzhe."
"Thank you Brother Mingzhe."
Jiang Shuwan's eyes almost shone with a green light as she stared at the precious gift. How could she watch Zhong Nuannuan handle such a precious item alone? She was just about to reach out for the gift when Zhong Nuannuan quickly stuffed the brocade box into Chi Yang's arms.
"Brother Chi Yang, I really like this Auspicious Luck Set, would you please help me make some beautiful chains so that we can hang one on each of our necks and wear them as a jade pendant couple set?"
"Sure." Chi Yang agreed without hesitation.
He did not really like these small gadgets, but since Nuannuan wanted it, he did not have any problems wearing it for fun.
When Jiang Shuwan saw this, her face became red with anger.
"Miss Nuannuan, congratulations on your grievances being washed away, here is a small gift from me."
Aiden pulled out a brocade box from his suit pocket right after this.
However, his brocade box was obviously much smaller than Gu Mingzhe's brocade box.
The guests could not help but sigh to themselves, but they did not dare to show it.
"Thank you." Zhong Nuannuan thanked him. "Can I open it and have a look?"
Zhong Qianqian was obviously displeased when she heard this, but Aiden smiled and said, "Of course."
Knowing that this crap stick's gifts would not be too bad, Zhong Nuannuan did not stop to think, and immediately opened it in front of everyone.
A pure green natural jadite bead chain lay in the brocade box.Read more chapters at L istnovel.com
"Oh my God!"
The guest that recognized the Auspicious Luck Set earlier immediately exclaimed, and his face changed color.
"What is it?"
"Could it be that this small chain of beads is more valuable than the Auspicious Luck Set?"
"Impossible! Not mentioning the fact that the Auspicious Luck Set is the treasure of the Hall of Mingyu, it's also much bigger than this small chain of beads."
"Is the value of top-grade jade measured by its size?"
The guests engaged in lively discussion, while the guest who had a lot of knowledge of jade maintained a shocked appearance. After a long while, he asked with a trembling voice, "May I ask Mr Aiden, is this the chain of beads that was worn by Queen Lofis of Egypt, then auctioned in Gang District some time ago for the astronomical value of 106 million?"
As soon as the guest asked his question, the crowd of guests exclaimed.
For such a small chain of beads!
On the side, Jiang Shuwan and Zhong Qianqian's eyeballs almost popped out of their heads, and they gazed toward Zhong Qianqian with extreme envy.
This man could throw away millions of dollars for a woman's sister… just how much did this man value this woman?
As he stood to one side, Gu Mingzhe's expression also became extremely abbysmal.
