Lady Gu Is Too Weak To Fend For Herself - Chapter 686
Chapter 686: Porcelain Vase With Hollowed Out Jade Rings
Qiao Xi felt that Gu Yao was really too cute. How could that vicious mistress Huang Lilan have such a righteous son?
She smiled at Gu Yao. “Don’t worry. Gu Zheng doesn’t know that person, but I do!”
At this moment, outside the door.
Song Shijing stood beside Gu Zheng and looked at the gloomy man. He felt uneasy. He suddenly missed Song Shiyu. If he were here, the atmosphere would not be so awkward.
Gu Zheng frowned. He had never interacted with porcelain masters all these years. What if he could not help Qiao Xi?
At the door of the porcelain shop, Song Shiyu looked surprised. “Huh? President, what are you doing here?”
Gu Zheng was already unhappy. Hearing Song Shiyu’s words, he immediately mocked, “With your IQ, don’t say that you’re my assistant. Of course, I’m here for the porcelain vase!”
After entering, Qiao Xi had a surprised expression. “Gu Zheng, what are you doing here?”
The moment he saw Qiao Xi’s smiling face, the frustration in Gu Zheng’s heart instantly vanished. His face was filled with a gentle smile. “I came to see you. Why aren’t you home after shopping for so long?”
Song Shiyu: “???” ‘I’m really speechless! The president is two-faced!’
Now that the bet had been set, even if someone came, it would not change anything. Tang Ruge sized up the man in front of her, and her heart suddenly thumped violently.
Tang Lingyun did not notice her sister’s emotions and still looked disdainful. “Miss, if you know a porcelain master, ask them to quickly come over. I want to see which one of us can find the most skilled porcelain master!”
Gu Zheng walked to her side and asked softly, “Are you going to lose?”
Qiao Xi frowned. Could it be that she was so useless in his heart? No matter what, she was an international designer. Moreover, even if she did not know the top porcelain master in the world, she still had a few brothers. What was there to be afraid of?
However, Qiao Xi wanted to know Gu Zheng’s answer. She raised her eyebrows and asked, “What if I lose?”
Then, she saw the man smile evilly before replying in a lazy, “What else can we do? We’ll go back on our word! The Tang family is just a family in decline, right? What can they do if we don’t give the necklace to them? We didn’t sign an agreement anyway.”
The Tang family said that Qiao Xi was a cultured person, but they wanted Qiao Xi to use Heart of Rose as a bet. They were clearly people who wanted to fish for fame. There was no use in reasoning with such people.
Qiao Xi: “…” Go back on their word? Was Gu Zheng so shameless? However, she found it very interesting!
At this moment, the shop owner chuckled and said, “Everyone, let me tell you about Grandpa’s rules. Grandpa misses his great-granddaughter. Since he wants to give her something, he has to give her the best porcelain piece. Hence, he hopes to invite the top craftsman in the world to make a porcelain vase with hollowed-out jade rings.”
The moment that was said, the shop fell silent.
“A porcelain vase with hollowed-out jade rings? Hasn’t the art of this been lost?”
“That’s right. This method of creating this is very complicated. As the name suggests, jade and porcelain need to be fused together. Porcelain needs to be heated, while jade can’t withstand high temperatures, so the two can only be carved separately. However, in the end, they have to be fused together with a unique technique.”
Just the sound of this method was daunting. Unless it was the top porcelain master in the world, who could create such a complicated piece?
Rumor had it that a few had indeed made this kind of porcelain before, but only three had succeeded in the past few hundred years. In recent years, only the Luo family had succeeded. However, the Luo family had already retreated to Xuan Island and they never talked about the past. Who could invite the Luo family?
Now that the shop owner had made this request, everyone was put in a difficult position.
Gu Yao was uneasy. What if Qiao Xi could not invite a master who knew how to make hollow jade rings? She would lose. But there was also a possibility that the Tang family could not invite such a powerful figure.
Just as everyone was silent, Tang Ruge smiled and walked forward. “Senior, you know about the porcelain with hollowed-out jade rings. Could it be that you know the Luo family?”
The shop owner smiled and said, “Does that mean you can find a suitable porcelain master, Miss Tang?”
Tang Ruge smiled in embarrassment. “The Tang and Luo families are both porcelain families. My father is on good terms with the Tang family. When I was young, I’d go to the Luo family to see that porcelain and jade vase.”
Gu Yao stomped his feet anxiously. “Qiao Xi! It’s over! I think she knows that porcelain master!”
Qiao Xi’s expression was indifferent. “What’s the rush? The master hasn’t been invited yet, right?”
“You’re really calm! If you lose, will you really give her Heart of Rose? It’s all my fault. If I hadn’t argued with them, you wouldn’t have made a bet with them.”
