Chapter 288: Capricious Antique Shop
This antique shop had been in business for nearly 50 years, but it was often closed.
Its opening time was purely dependent on the mood of the boss, who was very capricious.
This was already Xie Luan’s fifth time visiting the shop. For the previous four times, the establishment had been closed.
With her poor health and fainting incident before, the entire family didn’t allow her to go outside by herself.
However, each time Xie Luan went to stop by, she only brought along Bai Changle with her. She told him not to disclose their trip to anyone.
During this period of time, Gu Yan had massaged her head several times already. Xie Luan felt that her body was feeling much better after those sessions. One could tell the improvement from her complexion alone.
Hence, the Bai family didn’t feel reluctant to let her out this time.
Bai Changle was not far behind Xie Luan. He closed his eyes while blocking the sunlight with one hand. He tried to look at the sign.
“Water Cloud Enclosure. This name is quite antique.” Bai Changle’s brows relaxed, and he continued, “Thank God, it’s open today. Mom, why do you have to visit this antique shop? Every time you do, you’re so mysterious.”
“I have some business to settle.” Xie Luan couldn’t explain too much to Bai Changle for now. Ever since she saw the jade pendant on Gu Yan’s neck, she had been thinking about checking the shop.
She had the exact same jade pendant before, and she bought it from this antique shop.
Although her jade pendant was long gone, the one on Gu Yan’s neck looked eerily similar to hers. In order to confirm there weren’t multiple copies, Xie Luan wanted to visit the shop and confirm it with the owner.
But then again, Xie Luan wasn’t certain either. After all, almost twenty years had passed already. Even the owner might not remember it.
Perhaps the antique shop had change hands already.
The chances were slim, but Xie Luan still obstinately wanted an answer.
There seemed to be some kind of force urging her to do it.
Xie Luan suddenly felt nervous. She didn’t know why.
She took a deep breath and walked forward, pushing the door open.
The red wooden door inscribed with strange creatures slowly opened and made a creaking sound.
The sunlight poured in. If one looked carefully, there were dust particles flying within the beam of light.
Bai Changle followed Xie Luan closely and coughed. “There’s so much dust. It hasn’t been cleaned for a long time, has it?”
“Indeed.” A man’s voice suddenly sounded. His tone was very warm and pleasant to hear.
He appeared to have a smile on his face. “You guys are very lucky. I haven’t opened for a year.”
Bai Changle: …
Xie Luan looked at the white-haired young man wearing traditional Chinese clothes from the Tang Dynasty. She felt taken aback.
Meanwhile, Bai Changle was speechless. He only opened once a year. Was he not scared of bankruptcy?
Bai Changle said, “We’re unlucky. We went here five times. If we knew you only opened once a year, we shouldn’t have visited five times.”
The man wearing traditional clothes only smiled slightly and looked at Xie Luan. “Mrs. Xie, long time no see.”
“It really is you, Boss Liu!” Xie Luan was even more confused. “It has been twenty years, why do you still… look as though you are in your thirties?”
“Maybe I’m good at maintaining my appearance.” The corners of Boss Liu’s mouth curved up a bit, and he walked up to the chair, saying, “Please have a seat, you two, I’ll make some tea.”
Bai Changle was puzzled. He found out that his mother seemed to be acquainted with this Boss Liu.
This white-haired Boss Liu looked like an ancient man. His manners and expression didn’t seem to belong to that of a modern person.
Did this man hypnotize himself to become an ancient man because he dealt with an antique business?
