Inside the auction hall.
Ye Qing Xin takes the auction sign and hugs Jing Bo Yuan’s arm to get inside.
There’s a quite lot of people that have sit down on the hall. Because this time, the main theme is elegant jewelry and jade jewelry. So most people that come are rich and wealthy middle-aged woman. It’s also mixed of western and eastern people.
Ye Qing Xin looks around, most of them also wear formal clothes so it’s no wonder before Jing Bo Yuan reminded her to wear more formal clothes.
The time they are about to sit down……
“Chief Jing, what a great coincidence. You also bring your young lover to join buy the jewelry?” A big-belly forty years old man come over, beside him there’s a young beautiful woman. She seems to be just twenty years old, she should be around Ye Qing Xin’s age.
Jing Bo Yuan looks stern and shakes his hand. “Chief Zhu.”
Chief Zhu looks at Ye Qing Xin’s face and his voice is somewhat shady: “Chief Jing, your young lover is really beautiful.”
This time the woman beside him starts to hug his arm.
Chief Zhu strokes that woman’s face and smiles to Jing Bo Yuan: “This is Shan Shan, I just knew her two days ago. Although she cannot be compared to yours, but she will do.”
Shan Shan pouts and snorts unhappily. It makes Chief Zhu laughs loudly and says: “My Shan Shan is beautiful.”
Jing Bo Yuan smiles for a while and hugs Ye Qing Xin’s shoulder. He introduces seriously: “This is my fiancee.”
Chief Zhu’s smile turns stiff, he starts to be polite: “I’m really sorry. I have bad eyes, Mrs Jing please forgive me.”
Ye Qing Xin shows her light smile and says: “Chief Zhu, you are too polite.”
Then they go on their ways.
Ye Qing Xin sits down with Jing Bo Yuan and asks: “Who is he?”
Jing Bo Yuan says: “Zhu Zi Gang, he works in property. I used to have cooperation with him several time.”
She remembers his words before “This is my fiancee”, she bits her lips: “You before… why did you say that I am your fiancee, I haven’t agreed to marry you……”
Jing Bo Yuan looks at her calmly and says: “Really?”
Ye Qing Xin suddenly realized there’s a danger….
She nods and doesn’t willing to admit her defeat: “You, You….. You haven’t proposed to me……”
Jing Bo Yuan doesn’t say anything and just watches her.
Ye Qing Xin just turns her head around to other side. She avoids his gaze.
The crowd starts to gather.
“Xin Xin.” A familiar voice calls her.
Ye Qing Xin turns her head and looks at Gu Qiao.
“Ms Gu.” Ye Qing Xin greets her politely.
Gu Qiao smiles and says: “Why are you be so estranged? Can’t you call me Qiao Qiao?”
Ye Qing Xin remembers the time she asked the nurse to buy her a brown sugar. She is a considerate young woman. So she calls her: “Qiao Qiao Jie (Sister Qiao Qiao).” Gu Qiao is five or six years older than her. She should call her sister.
Gu Qiao smiles.
She then shifts her gaze to Jing Bo Yuan.
Jing Bo Yuan is wearing a formal clothes. His hair is arranged neatly. His shoulder is broad. It can give a sense of security, it let people want…… to lean on it.”
Ye Qing Xin already turns her head and talking to Jing Bo Yuan. Jing Bo Yuan listens seriously at her.
Jing Bo Yuan looks calm but he can act intimately to Ye Qing Xin.
Gu Qiao watches Jing Bo Yuan’s side face and her heart beats so quick.
She is captivated by his look.
This handsome man is charming. It’s too easy for him to steal someone’s heart.
Thoroughly open and clear.
Jing Bo Yuan turns his head and looks at her.
Gu Qiao starts to panic.
Jing Bo Yuan’s eyes are cold and somehow showing warning like he could know her deepest secret.
She tries to avoid it and wants to speak up. But that man just turns his head to the front. Just like it’s just her illusion.
She bits her lips and clutches her number tightly.
The auction starts.
The first product is a couple blue diamond earring, the base price eight hundred thousand RMB.
After several products, finally it’s Ye Qing Xin’s pink diamond necklace. The base price of her necklace is one million three hundred thousand RMB.
Ye Qing Xin is startled, it’s the amount that she said to Jing Bo Yuan. She just said it carelessly, she didn’t expect…..
She looks at Jing Bo Yuan. She is somehow touched by this.
Jing Bo Yuan notices her gaze and clutches her hand.
People start to bid for it.
For the auction, people should add a hundred thousand per bid.
“One hundred sixty thousand, is there any higher than this?”
Then someone puts up their number.
The auctioneer: “One million seven hundred thousand, is there anyone want bid higher than this?”
No one rises up the number again.
The auctioneer looks around: “One million seven hundred thousand, once……” then after short moment: “One million seven hundred thousand, twice….”
Then suddenly a woman raises her number: “Two million!”
Ye Qing Xin looks over, it’s Shan Shan.
Then a man starts to rise his number again. He is a middle-aged man: “Two million five hundred thousand.”
Shan Shan doesn’t want to be defeated: “Three million!”
The middle-aged man: “Three million five hundred thousand.”
“Four million five hundred thousand.”
Shan Shan: “Five million.”
Ye Qing Xin’s eyes turn bright. She clutches Jing Bo Yuan’s arm tightly. It makes his suitcase a bit wrinkly.
Jing Bo Yuan watches at her expression and doesn’t respond.
Suddenly he looks like he is thinking about something, so he says to her at a normal voice. Everyone around them can her him: “This necklace is quite unique, do you like it? If you like it, I can help you to buy it.”
“Eh?” Ye Qing Xin is confused.
Isn’t this necklace is the one that she wants to sell? How can someone buy a thing that she wants to sell?
She glares at Jing Bo Yuan. Jing Bo Yuan raises his head to pinch her cheek lightly. He keeps on saying things that she doesn’t understand. “Why are you looking at me? I think this necklace is very suitable for a girl. It will look good on you.” He asks her again, “do you like it?”
Ye Qing Xin shakes her head firmly: “I don’t want it.”
Jing Bo Yuan says: “it’s too pity. It’s quite good.”
Ye Qing Xin watches him for several seconds, then very quickly her attention is attracted by the other.
The atmosphere around turns very solemn and quiet.
Shan Shan: “eleven million.”
The middle-aged man once again raises his number: “Eleven million five hundred thousand.”
Shan Shan bits her lips and glares at that man. She raises her number: “Fifteen million.”
Chief Zhu’s face turns sour but he doesn’t say anything.
The middle-aged man: “Fifteen million five hundred thousand.”
Shan Shan: “Twenty million.”
Chief Zhu’s face changes and glares at her. He yells at her: “Shan Shan!”
Shan Shan lowers down her head and shows her delicate and charming face.
Chief Zhu is unhappy but he doesn’t say anything else.
Although he has a young lover for enjoyment, he is generous but he couldn’t just spend money like water.”
Twenty million necklace is his limit.
He hopes that middle-aged man will bid again so he doesn’t need to buy it.
That middle-aged man doesn’t bid again.
The auctioneer: “Twenty million, once…..” no one raises their number.
“Twenty million one hundred thousand.” Gu Qiao speaks up.
There’s a great commotion in the auction hall.
Though the necklace is beautiful and delicate. Though the pink diamond has 10 carat. It’s exquisite workmanship but it shouldn’t be in twenty million range of price.
Shan Shan is unhappy and glares at Gu Qiao. She really likes that necklace. She turns her head at Chief Zhu and faces his sour face and sharp eyes. She says flirtatiously and smiles brightly: “This necklace looks not that expensive. The buyer should be a stupid one. Gan Die (Godfather), let’s look around. If I like anything else, you should buy it for me okay?”
Chief Zhu’s fatty hand strokes her exposed thigh.
The price has reached thirty million.
The middle-man says: “Thirty million one hundred thousand.”
Gu Qiao raises her number: “Thirty million five hundred thousand.”
Her gaze looks like it is fixed on the necklace. But actually she is looking at that man.
The thing that he says is good, she wants it.
At all cost!
The middle-aged man: “Thirty million six hundred thousand.”
Gu Qiao: “Forty million.”
The middle-aged man: “Forty million one hundred thousand.”
Gu Qiao bits her lips and just raises her bid to fifty million.
All the people are looking at her, is this woman crazy?
The middle-man says slowly: “Fifty million one hundred thousand.”
Gu Qiao looks at that middle-aged man. She doesn’t know whether it is her illusion or not. But she feels that the man is purposely forcing her to bid higher.
She purses her lips and bids again: “Fifty million five hundred thousand.”
The middle-aged man bids again even higher: “Fifty million six hundred thousand.”
Gu Qiao: “……….”
Ye Qing Xin is very satisfied with the auction process.
Fifty million six hundred Yuan……. she never dreams about it…..
She turns around to look at Gu Qiao, she notices that her face is sour. She wants to remind Gu Qiao to stop but she feels pain on her hand.
“Why are you pinching me?” Ye Qing Xin rubs he hand and glares at Jing Bo Yuan.
Jing Bo Yuan takes her hand and rubs it. He says calmly and coldly: “Don’t talk during the action. You should just watch it silently.”
Ye Qing Xin understands him.
He doesn’t want her to intervene. He wants her to allow Gu Qiao to bid against that man.
Ye Qing Xin couldn’t help but to criticize him silently. This man is too cold.
No matter what they know Gu Qiao, moreover she heard previously from Mrs Hong that Gu Qiao is Sheng family’s goddaughter. Jing family is close to Sheng family too. She should know Jing Bo Yuan for a long time.
How can he just watch her to be at great loss.
He is too cold.
She thinks about it and smiles.
Being cold to others and just being gentle and warm toward her. It’s quite good.
This also his charm as thirty years old mature man. He is experienced and knows clearly how to treat those who are close and not too him. He knows how should he act and how to maintain distance.
He is not like young ones that want to be protector of women. Ones that think to act gentlemen.
She imagines a scene: Gu Qiao suffers a loss. Jing Bo Yuan is her side and advises her gently. Then it let Gu Qiao to feel the need to give her heart to him. Jing Bo Yuan strokes her head and doesn’t refuse.
Ye Qing Xin couldn’t help but to shiver.
She watches Jing Bo Yuan’s stern face. She really loves his current expression.
Ye Qing Xin’s attention shifts from the auction to Jing Bo Yuan. She looks at his face. Her big eyes are shinning.
Jing Bo Yuan notices her sudden enthusiastic gaze at him. “What is it?”
Ye Qing Xin smiles and suddenly moves close to his ear. “Bo Yuan, I feel like…. I even like you more.”
He doesn’t change his expression, but his hold on her hand is tighten.
Ye Qing Xin also grips his hand even tighter.
This time, the necklace has reached seventy million. Gu Qiao’s face is really sour. She has a want to retreat but the time she remembers that Jing Bo Yuan complimented this necklace, in her heart she is unwilling to let it go.
The middle-aged man keeps on being calm as ever: “Eighty million four thousand.”
All people are watching them. They are waiting for the result who will be the idiot that gets the necklace.
The auctioneer: “Is there anymore higher bid?” All people are silent: “Eighty million four thousand once……. Eighty million four thousand twice…… Eight million four thousand one last time.” The auctioneer looks around: “Do–”
“Eight million five hundred thousand.” Gu Qiao bids again.
One last time, Gu Qiao says to herself. If that man raises up again, she will just give it up.”
“Eighty million five hundred thousand, any other bid?”
Jing Bo Yuan looks at the middle-aged man’s direction.
The middle-aged man doesn’t bid again.
Finally Ye Qing Xin’s necklace is sold at the most high price: Eighty million five hundred thousand.
It’s just at this moment Ye Qing Xin isn’t be that excited as before. She just feels that in this life there’s nothing more worthy than being loved by this man.
The time the auction employee comes over to pass the “Letter of confirmation”, Gu Qiao signs her name on it and feels distressed.
Jing Bo Yuan also buys a set of emerald jewelry: necklace and earrings.
For this, Ye Qing Xin complains.
“Why are you spending that much money to buy that? It’s too oldish. Not really good.” She thinks that he will give it to her.
Jing Bo Yuan signs the “letter of confirmation” and just says carelessly: “Not for you, don’t worry.”
Ye Qing Xin: “…..”
