Lady Gu Is Too Weak To Fend For Herself - Chapter 688
Chapter 688: The Legendary Luo Family Has Really Appeared!
Qiao Xi nodded, and Pei Lingquan grunted coldly. “Are you worthy to compare yourself to my student? Ruge was able to create porcelain pieces by herself when she was as young as five years old. With her ability, she’ll definitely have some accomplishments in the future. Even if she can’t create a porcelain vase with hollowed-out jade rings, she still has me, her teacher. Who do you think you are?! Hand over the necklace immediately!”
Tang Lingyun pointed at Qiao Xi and said loudly, “Mr. Pei, look. It’s the necklace she’s wearing!”
Pei Lingquan naturally knew something about jewelry as well. He could tell at a glance that Qiao Xi’s necklace was expensive, and his eyes were filled with greed. Hence, he shouted loudly, “So many eyes are watching! Don’t even think about reneging on your debt!”
Gu Yao had a look of disdain. These two were both famous porcelain masters in the industry. They said that they disdained money and valued culture over everything else. After seeing Qiao Xi’s necklace, though, they forgot about their scholarly character.
Tang Ruge was pretentious, while Pei Lingquan was just fishing for fame. Such hypocrites were really detestable.
Pei Lingquan rubbed the jade ring in his hand as he stared fixedly at Qiao Xi’s necklace. “You’re the daughter of a rich family. Why aren’t you keeping your word? Since you never planned on giving up the necklace, why did you agree to the bet then?”
Qiao Xi looked at everyone and asked casually, “Miss Tang, you haven’t brought out the porcelain vase with hollowed-out jade rings either. How are you so sure that I’ve lost?”
Before everyone could react, Pei Lingquan laughed out loud. “Hahaha! I’m already here. It’s only a matter of time before I create that piece. With me around, how can Ruge lose?”
Tang Lingyun said proudly, “I know you don’t want to admit defeat so easily. If you have the ability, go and invite that person from the Luo family. It’s fine even if you manage to invite the porcelain family from the capital. If you lose, you lose. Why are you still being stubborn?!
“Let me tell you, that big family in the capital has never interacted with the outside world. Meanwhile, the Luo family has been living in seclusion since a few years ago. Outsiders are not allowed to enter Xuan Island either. Only people of my sister’s and Mr. Pei’s status can contact the Luo family, while you… don’t have the ability at all!”
Everyone understood when they heard this. Qiao Xi had no chance of winning from the beginning, yet she even bet on an expensive necklace.
Gu Yao rushed in front of Gu Zheng anxiously. “Brother, why are you standing here like a block of wood? Your wife is being bullied! Are you still her husband?! Qiao Xi is about to lose. Heart of Rose is the relic left behind by Qiao Xi’s mother. How can we give it to them?!”
Gu Zheng glanced at Gu Yao, his eyes still calm. He did not have many memories of this younger brother of his. In the past, every time he woke up, he would only recall that Gu Yao was Huang Lilan’s son. Hence, he did not think Gu Yao had a good character. Now that he looked at him, Gu Yao seemed quite similar to him.
Gu Yao was still talking non-stop. Gu Zheng said indifferently, “Shut up.”
Gu Yao: “…” ‘Shut up? I’m worried about your wife! No wonder Qiao Xi keeps saying that you’re a bastard. You’re really a bastard!’
“Stop stalling for time. Quickly bring it over!” Tang Lingyun had already lost her patience and directly rushed in front of Qiao Xi, wanting to pull the necklace on her neck.
At this moment, there was a commotion outside.
“Look! Who’s that?”
Everyone looked in the direction of the voice and saw a few luxury cars worth millions of dollars parked at the door. A group of bodyguards in light clothes stood in two rows and opened up a path.
“Luo?” Someone with sharp eyes immediately noticed that the word ‘Luo’ was embroidered on the bodyguards’ clothes. Just this word was enough for everyone to understand the newcomer’s identity. The Luo family of Xuan Island?
The legendary Luo family was really here?
The corners of Qiao Xi’s mouth curled up. The bodyguards of various large families all wore suits as well. They looked very cool, but it was just to create an impact. They were naturally not very powerful. On the other hand, the Luo family’s bodyguards were truly skilled. They wore light clothes so that they would not be restrained when they attacked. It would be easier to take down the opponent that way.
Everyone knew that the Luo family of Xuan Island was a reclusive family, and they also knew that they were a porcelain family. However, perhaps no one knew that the Luo family was best at hidden weapons and had trained many assassins.
“The Luo family! It’s actually the Luo family!” Tang Lingyun was so excited that she almost jumped up.
Pei Lingquan was stunned for a long time. He did not expect the Luo family to really appear, and it was such a big scene. He hurriedly craned his neck to see who it was.
