Chapter 728 Enemy or Friend
Things in Harbor City could be regarded as over.
However, another new round of turmoil occurred in Yuncheng.
On the first day Song Yunxuan returned to Yuncheng, she heard a ridiculous matter from Fanxing Magazine.
Xiao Hong said to Song Yunxuan, “Someone wants to buy Fanxing.”
Hearing these words, Song Yunxuan could not help but laugh, “Acquiring Fanxing?”
Did this man have a problem with his brain?
Song Yunxuan was doing well in Yuncheng. Why would she sell Fanxing to others? That person was considering something impossible.
Song Yunxuan didn’t care about this. She thought of it as a rookie who had just arrived in Yuncheng indulged in the wildest fantasy.
However, what happened afterward proved that she missed a lot in her thinking.
After Shao Tianze returned to Yuncheng, his mood became worse every day.
The Shao Family also began to go straight downhill. Funds were needed in many places, but the money was not available.
And they had given Shao Xue a dowry of 50 million yuan, which drove the Shao Family to desperation.
Under such circumstances, Gu Changle still complained that she could not bid for a diamond as big as a dove egg from South Aflica.
Shao Tianze avoided seeing her.
Unexpectedly, on the third day after Gu Changle did not bid for the diamond, the Shao Family received a package.
Gu Changle did not like online shopping, always feeling it degrading.
Therefore, after they got the package, she ordered the servant to throw the package away without thinking about who sent it.
She did not expect that she received a call before throwing away the package.
Gu Changle even felt the voice familiar.
The one said to her, “I’m a newcomer and would like to make friends with you and Mr. Shao, so I have prepared a gift and asked some to give it to you. Miss Gu, have you received it?”
As she listened to the man’s words, Gu Changle frowned and asked him, “Who are you?”
“I have said that. I am a newcomer to Yuncheng.” The man’s voice was smiling, and it didn’t sound hostile.
However, Gu Changle could not help but think a lot because too much had happened in Harbor City recently. Maybe someone wanted to do something to the Shao Family when it was unstable now.
Gu Changle pursed her lips and asked him, “Tell me who you are.”
“Miss Gu, why not open and see the gift I gave you than before keeping doubting my identity and asking who I am? See the gift and you will understand.”
Listening to the strange man’s words, Gu Changle frowned and turned her sight to the package in the servant’s hand.
She reached out to the servant, “Give it to me.”
The servant handed her the delicate small square box with ribbons.
Gu Changle had been Gu Changge’s sister for many years and had seen all kinds of good things.
After seeing this exquisite jewelry box, she had no interest in it.
However, when she opened the jewelry box, she couldn’t help but widen her eyes.
Inside the jewelry box, there was a delicate dark blue velvet at the bottom.
On the velvet, there was a beautiful diamond ring lying quietly.
The diamond on the ring was the one that Gu Changle did not bid in the Franch auction house, which was from South Aflica and as big as a pigeon egg.
As she looked at the ring in the jewelry box, her eyes gleamed.
She also felt a little excited in her heart.
The man on the other end of the phone seemed to predict Gu Changle’s reaction at this moment. He smiled softly and asked Gu Changle, “I accidentally got this ring. Do you like it, Miss Gu?”
Of course, Gu Changle liked this ring. She liked it not normally but crazily.
However, she did not know whether this man was the one bidding against her at the auction.
That person seemed to understand the doubt in her heart. He explained with a smile, “I got this from a friend. Although I spent a little more money, I think it matches you very well. So I bought it. I hope you like it, Miss Gu.”
When Gu Changle looked at the ring in the jewelry box, not only her eyes were shining, but her hands could not help shaking.
That was awesome. The ring she could not get from the bidding ended up in her hands.
And the surprise was that the ring was a gift from someone and she did not spend a penny.
Gu Changle could not hide her excitement. She was filled with joy as she looked at this diamond ring.
The person on the other end of the phone knew that Gu Changle had already got dizzy because of this ring. He said with a smile, “Miss Gu, this ring represents my sincerity. If you like it, please ask Mr. Shao for me that if I have the honor to pay you a visit tomorrow.”
“When will you come?”
Gu Changle asked him.
This rich man gave Gu Changle such an expensive gift before they met. Therefore, this man was not an ordinary person.
Shao Tianze was angry with Gu Changle because she refused Luo Chen’s cooperation. Now, there was a person with the intention of cooperation. Naturally, Gu Changle should let Shao Tianze meet him.
It would avoid Shao Tianze keeping blaming and being mad at her in the future because she had rejected Luo Chen.
Gu Changle asked such a question.
And the man said, “May I have the honor of having dinner with you?”
Gu Changle did not mind whether it was lunch or dinner. As long as he came at the agreed time, it would be fine.
She said, “What’s your name? I’ll talk to Tianze about this.”
“My name is Yuan Xi. Miss Gu.”
After hearing the name, Gu Changle really did not know who he was.
After thinking for a while, Gu Changle still could not remember this name. She said, “Is this your regular phone number?”
“Yes. If there is anything, please call this number and tell me, Miss Gu.”
“Well. Please arrive at the agreed time. If there are any changes, I will call you to let you know.”
Hearing Gu Changle’s words, Yuan Xi politely said, “Thank you, Miss Gu.”
Gu Changle thought that person was humbly seeking cooperation with them, but when she saw the big diamond from South Aflica in the box, she couldn’t help but say, “Mr. Yuan, I like the gift you gave me very much.”
“I’m glad that you like it, Miss Gu.”
Then, they said some polite words before hanging up the phone.
As soon as Gu Changle hung up the phone, she happily took the beautiful ring out of the jewelry box. She put on the ring and looked at it carefully with an unconcealed smile on her face.
Shao Tianze had already had a drink when he returned home in the afternoon.
After all, the Shao Family’s current development trend was very poor.
He was under great pressure. With no one helping him, he could only relieve his sorrows by drinking.
However, he never thought that when he arrived home from a drink, he would see Gu Changle holding the expensive ring and looking it closely. She had complained many times that she did not get it.
Shao Tianze even suspected that he had hallucinations.
However, the smile on Gu Changle’s face was real.
Shao Tianze rubbed his eyes and saw clearly that the ring was on Gu Changle’s finger. He quickly walked to Gu Changle and removed the ring from her finger.
Gu Changle was immersed in admiring the ring, so she did not even notice that Shao Tianze was there.
After Shao Tianze snatched the ring from her finger, Gu Changle said anxiously, “Tianze, give the ring back to me.”
Hearing Gu Changle’s words, Shao Tianze got furious instantly.
Now the Shao Family was short of funds and in an extremely difficult situation, but Gu Changle was still obsessed with jewelry, completely ignoring the Shao Family’s situation.
Shao Tianze knew that Gu Changle was keen to keep up with the Joneses. He also knew that she once spent several times more than the original price to get her beloved jewelry.
Such a thing was nothing in the past.
How could she do this kind of a thing now?
This really made Shao Tianze exasperated.
“Are you crazy?” Shao Tianze asked her angrily. He put the ring in front of Gu Changle’s eyes, “Do you know what the Shao Family is being through? You even bought jewelry at such a difficult time. Such expensive jewelry!”
Gu Changle heard Shao Tianze said that she bought this ring. She explained anxiously, “No, Tianze. I didn’t buy it.”
Hearing her explanation, Shao Tianze frowned even more, “Where did you get it?”
Gu Changle said, “I was about to tell you. A man called me today. He asked me to unpack a package and said it was a greeting gift to me. I didn’t know what was inside, so I followed what he said and opened the package. Beyond my expectation, this ring was in the package.”
As Gu Changle was saying, she felt that it was a windfall.
However, Shao Tianze became silent. He stared at the ring in his hand.
This ring was sold at a Franch auction house for a high price of 40 million.
At that time, Gu Changle missed the ring. She kept mentioning Shao Xue’s dowry to Shao Tianze.
She had been very aggrieved for not getting the ring.
Gu Changle talked his ear off.
However, now this ring was a gift for her from a man.
Shao Tianze wondered who gave the ring to her liking.
Was this person a friend or an enemy?
If he was an enemy, this gift catering to Gu Changle’s pleasure would make his loss outweigh the gain. Moreover, he could not get any benefits from the Shao Family.
If he was a friend, why would he make friends with them?
Shao Tianze knitted his brows and could not think of the reason.
Seeing that Shao Tianze furrowed his eyebrows and thought about these things, Gu Changle said, “This person is called Yuan Xi. He said that he would come to visit you tomorrow night. I have agreed with it on behalf of you.”
Hearing Gu Changle’s words, Shao Tianze fell silent.
