Reincarnation Of The Businesswoman At School - Chapter 2570 - Trouble-maker
Chapter 2570: Trouble-maker
Gu Ning was very polite to this kind senior. “Thank you so much for your care. My family is involved in the jewelry business, so I have done stone gambling many times before with the elders of my family. I have some experience and good luck. I don’t know whether I will win or not, but I shouldn’t lose too much money. And it’s actually a task assigned to me by my family, so I came to buy a lot of raw jade materials.”
“Oh!” The senior was less worried after hearing Gu Ning’s explanation. He said nothing further about that, but wished Gu Ning good luck in the end. “Then I’ll congratulate you on cutting out jade beforehand!”
“Thank you so much! I hope so.” Gu Ning thanked him.
After that, Gu Ning and Baili Zongxue continued to shop.
The raw jade material market was a long street, with big shops and small stalls, but raw jade materials with jade inside were mostly in big shops. Because there were more raw jade materials in big shops, it was more likely to cut out jade.
There were only a few raw jade materials containing jade at the small stalls.
In the raw jade material market, there were over a hundred stores. After walking along the street for an hour, Gu Ning and Baili Zongxue finished visiting twenty stores and they had delivered raw jade materials back to their car three times.
Once the raw jade materials were moved back to their car, Gu Ning put them away in her telepathic eye space. She couldn’t do that publicly, so she had to move them back to their car first.
Although many people watched Gu Ning move the raw jade materials back to their car, no one had the intention of stealing them. After all, they were just raw jade materials, not jade, and no one believed that there was jade in them.
Moreover, it was a public place with surveillance cameras all around. If they dared to steal those raw jade materials, they would be punished according to the law.
After moving raw jade materials three times, Gu Ning had collected about forty of them in different sizes. Most of them were small, with there being only a few big ones. However, they were worth at least over a hundred million yuan.
Baili Zongxue also had about a dozen, but not all of them contained jade. Gu Ning didn’t plan to let Baili Zongxue know too much. Therefore, among the dozen raw jade materials she chose for Baili Zongxue, two thirds of them contained jade, while there was nothing in the rest.
The jade was mainly at the middle or middle-high level. There wasn’t jade at the top level, but they were still worth a lot of money.
Gu Ning didn’t really want to give high-level and top-level jade to Baili Zongxue, but she would give Baili Zongxue a piece of top-level jade later.
When it was about 11 am, Gu Ning received Qi Tianlin’s call. Qi Tianlin asked her whether she was still in City Rui. If she was, they could share a meal, since he would leave that afternoon as well.
Gu Ning said she was still here, but there was something she needed to deal with so she couldn’t dine with him.
If so, Qi Tianlin didn’t insist since he understood that Gu Ning would have gone to the stone-gambling street.
After all, she was extremely skilled at stone-gambling, and City Rui was the place which produced raw jade materials. If Gu Ning didn’t go to gamble stones, it would be strange.
Because no one recognized Gu Ning in City Rui, she smoothly finished shopping for raw jade materials.
Unfortunately, it wasn’t smooth from the beginning to the end.
When Gu Ning and Baili Zongxue finished visiting half of the stores and moving the raw jade materials back to their car for the fifth time, they walked into a large store, which was opened by one of the three major jade miners.
At this time, it was nearly 12 am, so the market was already crowded. Especially in the large stores, there were a lot more people.
As soon as Gu Ning walked in, a man recognized her and came up to say hi to her.
“Hi, Miss Gu, welcome to City Rui! Are you going to make a fortune again this time?” This man’s voice was very loud, so many people heard him. Obviously, he did it on purpose.
Gu Ning had met this man before, but this man was just an onlooker back then, so Gu Ning didn’t know who he was.
The man saw her cut out several pieces of jade in City Teng last time, so he remembered her. He said that so loudly simply because he wanted to stop Gu Ning from making money.
Why did he do that? There was no grudge between them, so the man was merely jealous of her.
It was true that the man was jealous. Gu Ning was so young, but she had extremely good luck and made a fortune after cutting out pieces of jade. He, however, failed to cut a single piece after buying so many raw jade materials.
Upon hearing that, other people turned to look at Gu Ning with doubts.
They understood the man’s meaning. He just implied that Gu Ning was very skilled at stone-gambling and that she made a fortune after cutting out jade. However, was it true? It was just a young girl. Could she really do that?
After being picked on by him, Gu Ning wasn’t mad, but she felt uncomfortable, so she replied in a flat tone. “Well, I’m flattered, but I do hope that I will have good luck and make a fortune today.”
“Miss Gu, it should be very easy for you. Last time in City Teng, you cut out three pieces of jade from five raw jade materials. We were all jealous of you.” The man continued and mocked.
Hearing that, the onlookers were amazed and looked at Gu Ning in surprise.
“What? She can cut three pieces of jade from five raw jade materials? Is that true?”
“I believe so.”
“Right. Let alone three, if I can get one, I’ll be satisfied.”
“Who can cut out three pieces of jade from five raw jade materials?”
Right at this time, a surprised male voice sounded from the outside. The next moment, he walked over. It was a young man in his early thirties.
“Oh, Mr. Kang, hi! I’m the general manager of Liv Jewelry, Zhao Rong. It’s a great honor to see you here.” The man who picked on Gu Ning immediately went to greet the young man.
Mr. Kang was the owner of this store, and the heir of the Kang family, which was one of the three major raw jade miners, Kang Shaojie.
“Hi, Manager Zhao, nice to see you too.” Kang Shaojie replied, but he didn’t have much interest. He only exchanged greetings because he was polite. After all, Zhao Rong greeted him first, and he would seem rude if he said nothing.
The Kang family had manners.
“Did you just say that someone can cut out three pieces of jade from five raw jade materials?” Kang Shaojie asked. Although he didn’t see Zhao Rong earlier, he heard his voice.
