I, The Female Protagonist With Superpower, Am Super Fierce - Chapter 289
Chapter 289: Deranged Old Man
Although Xie Luan was curious about why Boss Liu didn’t age at all even after 20 years, she cared more about the jade pendant.
Since Boss Liu himself was still in charge of the shop, it was more convenient for her to ask about the jade pendant.
Xie Luan said, “Boss Liu, there’s no need for tea. I came here to ask you something!”
“Mhm, enlighten me.”
“Twenty years ago, I bought a jade pendant from your shop. It has the shape of a water drop, sharp at the top and round at the bottom. It’s twice as big as a nail and gray in color. Do you recall something like it?” Xie Luan looked anxiously at Boss Liu.
Boss Liu nodded. “I do remember.”
“That… jade pendant.” Xie Luan paused. She was both excited and hesitant. “I’ve long lost that jade pendant, but I saw it somewhere else once again. I’m not sure…”
“Although that jade pendant looks very simple and ordinary…” Boss Liu let out a hint of a smile and paused.
Bai Changle felt very annoyed to watch this deranged old man being mysterious and making his mom desperate.
“Hey, Boss, but what? Tell us. Stop acting mysterious! You’re like a deranged old man! If you want us to buy another antique, just say so!”
Boss Liu looked at Bai Changle and shook his head. “You’re too impetuous. One day, you will suffer a huge loss due to it.”
“Hey, believe it or not, I’ll beat you…”
“Changle!” Xie Luan suddenly said. She yelled too suddenly and ended up coughing.
Bai Changle glared at Boss Liu and patted Xie Luan’s back. He asked nervously, “Mom, are you alright? Are you uncomfortable?”
Boss Liu looked at Xie Luan. He could feel a warm and familiar chi on her…
He grinned and got up to say, “Please return another time. I’m going to close the shop.”
“Boss Liu, you still haven’t told me about the jade pendant!” Xie Luan asked desperately.
Bai Changle was holding in his temper. He didn’t want his mother to be riled up, so he didn’t say anything. However, his eyes glared at Boss Liu sharply.
The corners of Boss Liu’s lips slightly curved up. “When the fake is real, the real is fake. When nothing is something, something is nothing.”
“What do you mean?”
“I can’t reveal the secrets of heaven, but Mrs. Xie, I can see that the good fortune on your face is much greater than before.”
After saying the words, Boss Liu sent the two out and closed the door in front of them.
Although she found the person, she didn’t get any results. Xie Luan frowned.
She looked down.
‘What is real and what is fake?’
She remembered that there was such a phrase from the ‘Dreams of the Red Mansion’.
Perhaps this had something to do with the jade pendant…
Bai Changle’s temper resembled that of a monkey’s. Seeing his mother looking unhappy, he immediately said, “Mom, don’t think too much about what that deranged old man said. What secrets of the heavens? When they can’t make up any more stories, they say this!”
“Never mind, let’s go back.”
For some reason, she felt that she wouldn’t be able to get anything out of Boss Liu since he didn’t want to talk anymore.
However, that phrase from ‘Dreams of the Red Mansion’ was a key hint.
