Chapter 620 Yi Chenzi
Nalan Wushuang’s face suddenly clouded. He had sounded her out politely before, but now his question and offer seemed a bit insulting.
She refused in a cold voice, “I don’t want your car and I don’t want to see you again. Please, leave now.”
The C-list star was relieved to hear Nalan Wushuang’s words. She didn’t care who she was and wouldn’t treat her like an enemy as long as she rejected Bao’s offer.
She said to Bao Mingyu in a cutesy voice, “It’s almost time. The auction is about to start. Let’s go inside.”
However, Bao Mingyu was agitated and the fake smile on his face also disappeared. He said with heavy irony, “I really don’t know what you are thinking. Have you realized that you’re wasting your gift and resources? Why on earth would you want to stay with a poor little boy? You are not even allowed to attend this auction with him.
“Be my girlfriend and I can take you to the auction. It’s a snap to me and I’ll buy you whatever you want.”
He believed that they were standing here stupidly because they hadn’t received the invitation card and couldn’t attend the auction.
Nalan Wushuang was immediately enraged by his words. She didn’t care what he had said about her, but how dare he insult Qin Haodong? This was her bottom line and she couldn’t allow this to happen.
“Get out of here! You idiot!”
Nalan Wushuang broke out and threw the business card on Bao Mingyu’s face.
“How dare you…”
Bao Mingyu had never expected that Nalan Wushuang would humiliate him in public. This was a public place so he could do nothing else other than shoot an angry glance at them and leave with his lover.
“What the hell is this!”
Obviously, Nalan Wushuang was still angry and her chest heaved with rage.
“Calm down.” Qin Haodong smiled and said, “He’s the boss of an entertainment company. Don’t you want to be a big star?”
Nalan Wushuang replied, “If you have an entertainment company, I’ll willing to work for you as a star.”
Qin Haodong said, “Forget it. I have no interest.”
As they were talking and joking, Tian Ye run out of the revenue in a hurry. He was stunned at the sight of Qin Haodong and Nalan Wushuang. Then he came forward and asked politely, “Excuse me, are you Mr. Qin?”
Qin Haodong nodded and said, “Yes.”
Tian Ye was a little surprised. He didn’t expect that the distinguished guest of the Li family was such a young man. However, as the man in charge of the auction company, he was sophisticated and didn’t show any emotions. He said respectfully, “I’m sorry, Mr. Qin, I’m late.”
Qin Haodong said, “Never mind. Let’s go.”
“Please follow me.”
Tian Ye led the way and took them into the auction house.
The auction company, owned by the Li family, was the top one in Hong Kong. It was spacious and had luxurious decorations.
They entered and found that the hall was full of guests and everyone was waiting for the auction to get started.
Bao Mingyu took the movie star into the auction house and she was surprised at its area and decorations. “Young Master Bao, this auction house is so big.”
“Of course it is. This is the most famous one in Hong Kong.” Bao Mingyu said with pride, “Besides, there’s a membership system and ordinary people are not allowed to come in. Do you still remember the two people standing at the door? They’re just nobodies and can only peek from outside.”
The movie star said flatteringly, “You must be a member here.”
“Of course, I’m a Gold member here and have to buy at least 100 million worth of items in the auction.” Bao Mingyu pointed to a row of seats in the front of the venue and boasted, “These are special seats for gold members and ordinary people can only sit in the back.”
The star pleaded, “Can I sit here with you?”
Bao Mingyu said, “Of course. Gold members can bring a person to attend the auction with them.”
“Great! Thank you for allowing me to enjoy the special seat with you!” She sat down and noticed several extremely luxurious seats in front of them. She was curious and asked, “Mr. Bao, what are those seats for?”
Bao Mingyu explained, “Those are extraordinary. They are supreme VIP seats and are prepared for esteemed guests in Hong Kong, such as the Governor, Master Mei Zhanlong, and his disciples. They’re all billionaires and must have spent ten million yuan here.”
His eyes sparkled with envy and he said, “I will definitely be there one day.”
He was looking forward to the future but his face was frozen when he saw Qin Haodong and Nalan Wushuang come in together.
“How did they come in?”
He wondered but then was relieved. He believed that Qin Haodong and Nalan Wushuang must have sneaked in.
“All the seats have been arranged and they can only stand somewhere and be a laughing stock!”
But they walked past him and Tian Ye directly steered them into the front and asked them to sit down in a VIP seat.
The leather sofa for two looked luxurious and Bao was sure that it must be more comfortable than his seat.
His eyes popped at this sight. What the hell was going on? Even he was not qualified to have a VIP seat! How could these two ordinary people that hadn’t even received an invitation card sit there?
The most embarrassing part was that he had been mocking them and told his girlfriend that they could just peek from outside. But now they were sitting in his dream seat. It was too awkward.
Tian Ye arranged a seat for them and then bid farewell to Qin Haodong. He had to deal with the auction-related affairs.
At this time, Bao Mingyu’s girlfriend also noticed Qin Haodong and Nalan Wushuang. She asked, “Darling, didn’t you say that only esteemed people can sit on the supreme VIP seat? Why are they sitting there?”
“Well…” Bao Mingyu thought for a moment and said, “I get it. They must be relatives or friends of Tian Ye and he brought them here in secret. There’s no other vacant seat, so he let them have the VIP sofa.”
He was irritated at this thought, “How dare he! He’s getting out of control! I’m a friend of Li Donghai, the young master of the Li family and I have to tell him this the next time we meet.”
While they were talking, a middle-aged man in his 50s came in, which caused a stir in the venue.
He was wearing a green robe with a Tai Chi Yin-Yang fish design on the chest. His hair was coiled on top of his head with a hairpin, just like that of the ancient people in Huaxia. It seemed that he was filming costume dramas. If there was a horsetail whisk in his hand, he would be more like a Taoist.
He would definitely be mocked by onlookers if he was walking on the street. But things were different here. Many people stood up and greeted him with adoration in their eyes.
“It’s Master Yi Chenzi! He came to today’s auction…”
“He’s so handsome. He’s definitely a great master…”
“Nice to meet you, Master Yi Chenzi. When can you tell me my fortune…?”
No wonder everyone here was so excited. This was Yi Chenzi, the first disciple of Mei Zhanlong, who was called the best practitioner in Hong Kong.
Yi Chenzi behaved just like a great master. Although he was being touted and praised, he still looked calm and there was an enigmatic smile on his face.
Compared to Master Zha, he rarely came out to participate in activities. But he was still popular in Hong Kong and his status and position were even higher now.
Qin Haodong glanced at Yi Chenzi and asked a waiter standing next to him, “Who is he?”
The waiter explained, “Sir, this is Master Yi Chenzi, the first disciple of Master Mei Zhanlong. He’s very powerful and skilled.”
The waiter was curious and wondered who this young man was. He was sitting in the VIP seat but hadn’t heard about the famous Master Yi. How could that happen?
This was the first disciple of Mei Zhanlong and he must be Master Zha’s fellow apprentice. Did he come here for revenge?
Qin Haodong didn’t care about the so-called Master Yi Chenzi, but he didn’t want anyone to prevent him from getting the snake’s head in this auction.
Tian Ye immediately came over and greeted him at the sight of Yi Chenzi. He politely invited him to a VIP seat next to Qin Haodong.
Qin Haodong heaved a sigh of relief. This man hadn’t come here looking for trouble and it seemed that he didn’t know that Master Zha had been killed by him. But the top priority was today’s auction and he didn’t care about anything else now.
Yi Chenzi glanced at Qin Haodong and was also surprised. Only esteemed guests could sit there. He had met all the upper-class people in Hong Kong, but he had never seen this young man.
Who was he? Why was the organizer of this auction treating him so seriously?
Qin Haodong directly ignored him. The “Master” meant nothing to him and what he cared most now was the snake’s head that would be auctioned later.
Soon, the auction began. A tall female auctioneer, who looked like a world-famous model, walked onstage.
She was a white woman and was obviously a westerner. But she was wearing a Huaxia cheongsam, which made her beautiful figure even more perfect. There was a sweet smile on her delicate face, making her look affable and lovable.
The most eye-catching thing was the white gloves, which indicated that she must be a golden auctioneer of the venue.
“Good evening, my friends. Welcome to today’s auction. I’m the auctioneer, Danielle.”
Although she was a westerner, she could speak fluent Huaxia Language. One couldn’t even realize that she was a foreigner if they listened to her speech with eyes shut.
