In the following two days, XunMi barely left Xun family’s raw materials den, continuously putting the knowledge embedded in her brain into practice. With addition to the powerful cheating weapon BaoBao, she could now bet ten times and win ten out of ten times.
Alone, she also could appraise and distinguish the high-quality materials. However, her abilities to discover the exact level of quality and color wasn’t that great.
Tomorrow was the gemstone betting conference. In preparation, XunMi dragged her exhausted body back home. She definitely needed to rest tonight, get some sleep so that she would be focused tomorrow.
“Qearl is back! Let me see if you’ve lost weight.” As soon as Father Xun saw XunMi, he grabbed onto her and inspected her condition.
When she came back two days ago, he was almost shocked to death by her news. He couldn’t believe that the previously amicable Le family would have such an agenda!
It made sense now why such a big scandal was erupting at this time. Did they really think there was no one guarding Xun family?
Look how outstanding his daughter was. As soon as she came back from abroad, she had captured Boss Mo. What was Le ChenXi in comparison, what was the entire Le family in comparison? ╭(╯^╰)╮
Father Xun was completely the ‘Only my daughter can dump you, you can’t dump my daughter’ type. This time, Le ChenXi had really enraged him.
“Father, you’re really exaggerating. It was just two days, how could I have lost weight?” XunMi laughingly said while supporting her father to sit back time.
Her father really liked to worry, but he was still adorable.
“For tomorrow’s gemstone betting, just do your best. Xun family can still afford to lose so don’t feel pressured.” It didn’t matter if they fell to being a second-tier family as long as Xun family members were all doing well.
“Father, believe in me. I didn’t spend all these years learning for nothing. I plan on giving the victory prize to you and mom as your 25th anniversary gift. Right, mom said she’s rushing back to watch my competition.” When XunMi returned from abroad, her mom was vacationing with Le ChenXi’s mother. Just two days into the trip, the news of the collapsed alliance between the families spread. This caused the two mothers to feel a bit awkward around each other, and make excuses to split up.
“Yup, your mom’s arriving tomorrow morning.” Tenderness spread across Father Xun’s entire face when talking about Mother Xun.
XunMi secretly smiled. When her mother was back, she probably won’t be able to see this side of her father anymore. At that time, he’ll be too busy being ordered around by her mother. At home, her mother was a complete queen while her father would melt into a chatterbox in her presence.
“Father, go and rest. You still have to go pick up mother tomorrow morning.” XunMi pushed Father Xun to the staircase, herself turning to the study room to inspect the equipment for tomorrow.
The gemstone betting competition was being held at the largest gemstone betting center, where the grand hall was going to be split into four regions: raw materials, semi-raw materials, rock splitting, and appraisal and auctioning.
In the center of the room, there will be a 1 meter by 1 meter stage, used for the competitions.
The next morning, XunMi had brought the representative Xun family group early to prepare. Not only were they gemstone betting today but they were also auctioning.
In the field of precious stones, the majority of buyers were mainly adding to their collection. No matter whether it was raw material or the already revealed final goods inside, the gemstone betting convention would be the best opportunity for them.
Today, the whole crowd of those in the gemstone field converged. To be here, everyone either needed to have money, or a reputation in the business. Everyone wanted to attend the gemstone betting convention that took place once every three years.
Perhaps those with money might truly be able to pick up a treasure for cheap. Even if they won’t be able to get anything, there were still these high class VIP people attending. It would be worth it to just be able to meet a few of them.
XunMi found the area set up for Xun family and organized the raw materials before handing the reigns over to her father’s secretary.
She then headed towards the third floor, where someone was already waiting for her.
“Han ge, morning. Have you had breakfast yet?” XunMi knocked before entering, only then discovering that Mo WenHan was not alone.
In the room, there was also Guan Xiao, members of Xie family, Lu family. With the addition of her, the largest families in the precious stones field were all present.
“I already ate. I prepared some of your favorites, come eat.” Mo WenHan waved XunMi over as a smile emerged on his face.
Even though his face still appeared stiff, it clearly relaxed and became gentler. XunMi didn’t argue, naturally taking a seat by Mo WenHan’s side.
“Uncle Lu, Mr. Xie, Le family head.” She made it obvious the difference in her relationship to each family.
“Xiao Xun, why are you alone? Where’s your father?” Uncle Lu asked smiling, while sending pointed glares towards Le ZhengTian.
“Father went to pick up my mother, so I came here first.” XunMi picked up a soup dumpling while answering. She took the milk that Han ge offered and took a sip.
“Han ge, are you being picky again? Milk is good for health!” She clearly noticed that there was more milk in her cup than the other glasses of milk.
“No,” He only drank a little less than one cup. Mo WenHan told a white lie without even batting an eye. XunMi gave him a suspicious look before finishing the glass of milk.
Meanwhile, the rest of the people at the table all have various expressions on their faces, especially Le ZhengTian.
XunMi had always intimately called him Uncle Le but now she was slapping his face in Boss Mo’s presence.
“Miss Xun, I haven’t had the chance to thank you. If there’s anything you need in the future, Xie family will gladly be at your assistance.” Xie Yan seized the opportunity to interrupt. Being able to create a relationship with Miss Xun now would also mean networking with Boss Mo.
If not gaining an opportunity to work with Boss Mo, it would at least mean that they wouldn’t be treated as a enemy in the future. Moreover, they really were thankful for XunMi’s help this time. If XunMi hadn’t requested for Boss Mo’s help, his daughter wouldn’t have been let out. After the gemstone betting convention, he’ll definitely finish Le family and An ZiYi off.
XunMi waved her hand, “Mr. Xie, you’re being too polite. Afterall, Miss Xie was framed by someone. Coincidentally, I knew of this matter so I didn’t go out of my way to help. You don’t need to keep this in mind.”
When Xie Yan heard her words, he didn’t continue with his flattery, only smiling and nodding his head.
In his heart, his admiration towards Miss Xun grew. The younger generation of his family really couldn’t compare to her. Le ZhengTian really was growing muddleheaded with age. How could he let such a good daughter-in-law escape? Even replacing her with that trash?
Ignoring the stiff atmosphere between the other people in the room, XunMi happily ate. By the time everyone had left, she had also finally finished eating.
“Madam, Xie family head wanted me to pass on a message. Le ZhengTian had promised him that if An ZiYi doesn’t become the champion of the gemstone betting convention. he’ll hand her over to Xie family and let them handle her punishment.” Guan Xiao communicated Xie Yan’s parting message.
XunMi stood up and stretched. Mo WenHan helped her smooth out her slightly wrinkly clothes.
“Oh. It’s about time for the event to begin. Where’s An ZiYi? I’m waiting in anticipation.”
