Chapter 423 Husband, He Said You’re Small!
Li Wangcai’s expression changed. He had already given his name, but the woman in front of him still did not give him face at all.
He stepped forward and stood right between Lin Momo and the staff member. He said angrily, “Do you know who I am?”
Qin Haodong glanced at the self-righteous guy. He reached out and stopped the Divine Mercenaries that were ready to step forward to beat the guys. Qin Haodong then stood next to Lin Momo and said, “We don’t know who you are. However, in Huaxia. those called Wangcai are usually dogs. There is an old saying in Huaxia, that a good dog doesn’t get in the way.”
As soon as he said those words, the onlookers burst out laughing.
Li Wangcai glanced at the Divine Mercenaries standing next to Qin Haodong, and immediately gave up the plan of violence. However, he had lost his face in public. His old face swelled like a pig’s liver. He shouted in a threatening manner while being cowardly at heart, “Brat, do you want to die?”
He already regretted it. If he had known that would happen, he would have taken some of his bodyguards with him that day.
Qin Haodong still looked calm as he said, “I don’t want to die. We just want to buy that stone. Please get out of the way.”
Li Wangcai shouted, “No. My woman has her eye on that stone. You can’t buy it.”
Qin Haodong frowned, “Shouldn’t it be first come first served? That stone was chosen by my daughter first, so it should be sold to us first.”
The little fellow said, “Yes! Yes! That’s the stone Tang Tang chose. You can’t give it to anyone else.”
People around them also began to talk, “That’s right. It is clear that the stone was chosen by the little girl first…”
“Why rob a gambling stone? There are plenty of stones here for you to choose another one.”
The staff member also came forward and said, “Sir, that stone was indeed chosen by this little girl first. There are so many stones in the exhibition, you can choose another one.”
At that moment, the flirtatious woman hugged Li Wangcai’s arm and rubbed her silicone chest back and forth against it. “Dear husband, I want that stone. I like big ones!”
Qin Haodong said, “Beauty, you cannot be satisfied in some aspects. Just choosing a big stone won’t be able solve the problem. Besides, we bought this stone first!”
What he said was very obscure, but there were still many people who understood the meaning of it. They couldn’t help but laugh.
The flirtatious woman was stupefied for a moment. Then, she hugged Li Wangcai’s arm and shouted, “Hubby, did you hear? He said you’re small!”
The onlookers burst into laughter when they saw that the stupid woman had revealed it in front of everyone.
Li Wangcai’s face was flushed. He was unable to vent his anger, as he turned his head and looked at the staff member next to him. “This stone must be sold to me!”
The staff member said awkwardly, “Sir, I really can’t…”
Li Wangcai said angrily, “Why not? Aren’t you selling this stone? I can pay more, I have money!”
He took out his bank card and shouted, “Isn’t this stone priced at 500,000? I will give you 1 million!”
The staff looked embarrassed. From the bottom of his heart, he naturally wanted to sell it for more money. The higher the price of the stone, the more commission he got. However, the exhibition also had its own rules. Qin Haodong wanted that stone first after all.
Qin Haodong secretly laughed in his heart; a stone with nothing was going to make the guy lose 500,000. The guy even directly doubled the price. Since he wanted to be the head, Qin Haodong had to give him a hand.
He said with a look of discontent, “Are you comparing to see who has more money? My daughter wants this stone, so I will give you one and half million.”
Li Wangcai shouted, “Two million…”
“Two and half million…”
The two men began to fight as they shouted a price in turn. Each time, the amount of price increased was the original price of the stone. Soon, the price reached five million. The amount was in US dollars; therefore the five million USD was more than 30 million yuan, which was ten times more than the original price.
“Those two are crazy. They are spending so much money on such a stone.”
“What do you know? All the rich people want face.”
“Rich people are really stubborn. At such a high price, I think whoever buys it will pay for it…”
With the continuous rise in price, coupled with hearing the discussions around them, Li Wangcai slowly calmed down.
After goofing around in Burma for so many years, he had a bit of understanding about raw jade gemstones to an extent. That stone was not worth the price at all. Furthermore, as an entrepreneur, he was very smart when doing business. He was far from being as stupid as he looked.
He secretly decided that as long as Qin Haodong increased the price once again, he would immediately quit and cheat the young man.
Although Qin Haodong seemed to be very casual, in actual fact, he had been watching Li Wangcai’s expression with Spirit. Since he had seen through his thoughts, he couldn’t help but smile and say, “Since you must buy this stone, I quit!”
Li Wangcai almost vomited blood. He didn’t expect that right when he was about to trick Qin Haodong, he would directly quit.
A stone with a price tag of 500,000 was all of a sudden being sold for five million. Probably due to happiness having arrived so suddenly, the staff member was stunned on the side, and still had not recovered his senses.
Qin Haodong patted him on the shoulder and said, “Brother, quickly collect the money!”
“Oh!” The staff member then regained his senses. He hurriedly took the card in Li Wangcai’s hand and swiped it on the credit card machine. Only a drop sound was heard as the five million were collected.
Li Wangcai looked gloomily at Qin Haodong and said, “You tricked me!”
Qin Haodong said innocently, “How can you say that? You shouted the price yourself. You can’t blame anyone else.”
Seeing that she finally got the stone, the flirtatious woman once again hugged Li Wangcai’s arm, rubbing it. With excitement on her face, she said, “Honey, don’t be angry. There must be a large piece of jade inside the stone I chose. You might even get a treasure after examining it”
Up to that point, Li Wangcai had no other choice. If he could find a piece of jade, he could finally make himself feel better. He snorted and said to the staff member, “Find someone to open it for me as soon as possible.”
“Okay. Just a moment please!”
The staff member had just made a lot of money and was so excited that they called two stone-cutters in an instant.
At such a large raw gemstone exhibition, the Jade Gang had prepared hundreds of stone-cutters to cut the stones for those gamblers at any time.
The two stone cutting masters carried the large stone in a forklift, and then begun to cut it.
The people around him did not disperse. On the contrary, they were full of interest, as he was surrounded by three layers inside and three layers outside of people. They wanted to see what Li Wangcai could get.
Qin Haodong was not in a hurry to leave. He held the little fellow and watched on the side. He knew there was nothing in the stone. What he wanted to see was Li Wangcai’s expression, as he had spent five million US dollars to buy a pile of broken stones. It would be a wonderful sight to see.
The stone cutting master said to Li Wangcai, “Sir, do you want to draw a line on the stone?”
Li Wangcai took the chalk, drew a random line on the stone and said, “Just follow this line. Later when jade is found, I will greatly reward you.”
The two stone-cutters agreed and immediately began to get busy. Their salary there was not high, so their main source of income was tips from those rich guests.
The stone machine made a deafening sound. White fog burst out from the saw blade as the stone cutting had officially begun.
Everyone watched attentively. Li Wangcai was even more nervous. Five million US dollars was more than 30 million yuan. Although he had money, that was definitely not a small number. He had just spent it in a fit of anger. At the moment, he was looking forward to finding a big piece of jade.
As the saw blade went deeper and deeper, only a click was heard when the stone was divided into two. Two gray and white sections were revealed in front of everyone’s eyes.
“Oh my God! Gone, completely gone. The five million have gone down the drain.”
There was a moment of restlessness in the crowd. However, the money spent was from Li Wangcai, so people didn’t react much to it. Some who did only gloated.
The fat meat on Li Wangcai’s face shook. He glared at the woman and then shouted again, “Cut it again. Continue to cut it for me!”
He was a regular visitor to the raw gemstone exhibition, and was also very good at betting on stones. Sometimes there would be a small piece of high quality jade hidden in a corner. As long he could cut it out, he could immediately earn back the five million bet.
The two stone cutting masters nodded. They found a new entry point and started the cutting machine again.
There was another hissing sound as the two boulders turned into four. However, they were still gray and white, without a trace of green.
Seeing that result, people were completely disappointed.
“Gone, it’s completely gone. It’s been cut down to this point, he must be completely defeated.”
“Five million. It’s five million. What an idiot to buy such a rotten stone!”
“Really brainless. He actually chose the big stone to bet. Now, he has lost a lot of money…”
Seeing pieces of gray and white raw gemstone, Li Wangcai’s face was as ugly as the dead. A stone-cutter asked carefully, “Sir, do you still want to cut it?”
“Cut. Of course continue to cut it. You must cut out the jade for me…”
Li Wangcai gritted his teeth and said.
The stone-cutter was speechless. In his heart, he thought that he could have cut out jade with any random stone, should he still stay there waiting to serve a brainless guy like him?
However, since the guest requested it, they had to satisfy him. So, they started the cutting machine again.
In fact, there was no need to cut up that stone anymore. People with sharp eyes could see at a glance that there would be no green inside. However, Li Wangcai was unwilling to believe it. Not to mention losing five million US dollars, he also could not lose his face.
It was just from that, some experienced people had completely lost interest as they shook their heads and left.
As the stone cutting resounded again, the stones that were divided into four pieces were cut again from 4 to 8, from 8 to 16, from 16 to 32…
In the end, the big stone turned into small pieces. Li Wangcai’s face darkened as he was finally speechless. The flirtatious woman had also been frozen on the spot as she stood on the side.
“It’s fun. It’s so fun!”
The little fellow looked at it on the side with a lot of pleasure. It was as if she saw the most interesting thing. She clapped her two small hands and shouted happily.
Qin Haodong took two steps forward while holding the little fellow in his arms and said to Li Wangcai and the woman, “Don’t learn everything from others in the future. My daughter wanted the bigger one, so you chose the big one. Are you stupefied now?”
“It’s all your fault. If you hadn’t chosen that stone, who would we have chosen it?” At that point, the woman seemed to have found words to vent as she growled like a vixen, “What do you think the raw gemstone is? “You had to pick a big one. That stone there is big, why did you guys not pick that one?”
As she spoke, she raised her hand and pointed to the river next to her. Qin Haodong looked in the direction her finger pointed towards and saw a big stone weighing 30 or 40 tons in the center of the river. It set off a thick water mist from the impact of the water.
When he saw the stone clearly, his expression suddenly changed!
