“Who’s Master Bian? Why do you all know that name?”
“Seriously? You don’t know who Master Bian is? He’s the master who took part in building Imperial College’s essence-gathering formation!”
Mr Mo’s face lit up when he saw Master Bian. “Master Bian! It’s nice to see you here in Elegant Ink Gallery again!”
Formations were related to antiques, which was why Master Bian was a frequent customer here.
Crossing his hands behind his back, Master Bian nodded at Mr Mo with a stern look on his face.
He then turned to the Whistling Vase on the table. Before he said anything, his servant provided him with a pair of fine white gloves.
The impassive expression still on his face, Master Bian put on the gloves before he picked up the vase. He then examined it inch by inch with a magnifying glass.
All eyes were on Master Bian.
Master Bian had helped build Imperial College’s essence-gathering formation and was well-known on the continent. He was a famous figure in both the formation and antiques circles!
His words were deemed authoritative.
“What do you think?” Mr Mo clenched his fists and looked at Master Bian nervously.
Master Bian focused mainly on the signature on the base. Finally, he turned his sharp gaze on Feng Wu. “The signature belongs to Master Yu Wei and this isn’t fake.”
Everyone looked at Feng Wu strangely after that initial exclamation.
Especially Ye Yafei, who smirked at Feng Wu. “Feng Wu, even Master Bian has confirmed that this Whistling Vase is authentic and that this is Master Yu Wei’s real signature. What else do you have to say?”
Mr Mo put on a most aggrieved look. “Miss Feng Wu, are you still going to insist that this vase is fake?”
Master Bian stared at Feng Wu with animosity.
The wise-looking old man in the crowd looked even more intrigued.
However, Feng Wu didn’t seem bothered at all. There was something utterly confident about her when she smiled. “Yes, it’s a fake.”
By then, the others were staring at Feng Wu in disbelief.
She denied it stubbornly even when Master Bian had drawn his conclusion. There was something wrong with this girl’s character.
Ye Yafei burst into laughter. “I’ve never met anyone as shameless as you. Feng Wu, how can you be so disgusting? It won’t turn into a fake just because you say so!”
Mr Mo also smirked. “Miss Feng, if you don’t have that much money on you today, it won’t be a problem. Everyone here are witnesses. I can go to the Feng clan to claim it.”
Even Master Bian was sneering at Feng Wu. He sighed and shook his head. “I knew the one-time genius girl had fallen, but how could you have turned into this shameless person? What a pity…”
That was a very harsh thing to say!
As an elderly master, he had made such a comment about Feng Wu, a teenage girl… one couldn’t help but wonder what grudge he could have against Feng Wu.
What he said inferred that it was Feng Wu’s fault and made her a target.
And many agreed with Master Bian.
They pitied the one-time genius girl for the loss of her abilities. However, now that she had turned into this impudent girl, that pity turned into abhorrence right away.
