Al was super busy last week with interviews and
playing monster hunter world like a drug addict. Sorry about the lack of release 😦
Once Gu Xue Xue made the two hundred thousand bid.
Gu Qi Qi came to a stop.
A smear of satisfaction and understanding appeared in her big black grape eyes.
The speculating upper-class women covered their mouth in astonishment——this is crazy! Two hundred thousand for a catty worth of donkey hide gelatin? And it’s just for five year aged ? That price is much more suitable for a fifty year aged instead!
Everyone was shaking their heads to Gu Xue Xue and her aggressive redneck style of bidding.
It must be a terrible luck for the family to raise such kind of daughter.
However, Gu Xue Xue didn’t think so.
At this moment, her blood was all flared up. Blood veins could be seen seeping through her eyes. She stared fixedly at Gu Qi Qi, like a gambler possessed by the devil.
Once she saw that Gu Qi Qi seemingly frowned with hesitation, and that she no longer arrogantly tabbed against sale counter with her bank card. Gu Xue Xue was practically about to go wild in joy.
See, that bookworm simply didn’t have the money!
She should be terrified by now?
As expected, Gu Qi Qi faintly sighed and declared with a pouting face:
“You can have it.”
The flame of arrogance within Gu Xue Xue surged in a flash!
Without waiting for the pharmacist to finish the transaction, she grabbed the brocade case into her embrace.
“If you are poor, don’t come out and make an exhibition of yourself!”
Gu Qi Qi merely gave an indifferent smile, and she declined to comment.
On the contrary, the store manager reminded Gu Xue Xue: “Miss Xue Xue, you still haven’t paid yet……”
Gu Xue Xue impatiently waved him away her hand: “You are worrying that I would owe you? How unsightly!”
She took out the total of one hundred and eighty thousand worth of cash from the purse, then impolitely tossed to the counter with a “Peng——” while still savoring her joyous victory.
“Sorry for the inconvenience Miss Xue Xue, you’re twenty thousand short……”
After the money counting machine processed the payment, the store manager awkwardly spoke out.
The look on Gu Xue Xue’s face turned rigid.
She promptly found herself in an awkward situation.
She became overly excited a moment ago, and she had forgotten that she only had exactly two hundred thousand cash at the start. Since she already spent twenty-two thousand in earlier, she only had less than one hundred and eighty thousand cash remaining.
When the crowd started to shamefully point her out, she practically wished to hide herself by crawling into a crack.
Luckily, Zhu Fen whispered into her ear as a reminder: “Xue Xue, don’t you still have your credit card?”
The pupil in Gu Xue Xue shined brightly.
So she took out her credit card to pay the bill.
As the result……
“Sorry for the inconvenience again Miss Xue Xue, was your card locked by the bank? Your card won’t swipe!” The store manager returned the credit card back to her.
Gu Qi Qi recognized that credit card, it was an auxiliary card belonging to Gu Qiu Shan.
He didn’t keep it for himself, but unexpectedly gave it to Gu Xue Xue.
Unfortunately, now that Gu Qiu Shan had been detained in the police station.
With the encroaching lawsuit, his credit card along with his assets would have been frozen!
Gu Xue Xue, what are you going to use to squander money with?
At this moment, Gu Xue Xue was anxiously hopping about in, yet she wouldn’t dare to display the turmoil emotion on her face, fearing that she would be ridiculed further by Gu Qi Qi.
With cold sweat on her palm, she pinched the saving card at the bottom layer of her purse.
This saving card was intended for her four year university allowance, which was prepared beforehand by Gu Mei Feng from her secret stash of money.
There was little more than one hundred thousand in saving.
If she used this card now……she would most certainly be in trouble afterward.
Yet if she didn’t use this, she would be ridiculed by Gu Qi Qi on the spot!
Thinking like a gambler, she only hesitated momentarily before fiercely took out that saving card.
This time around, the card transaction was completed successfully.
Having her wish fulfilled, Gu Xue Xue bought the case of donkey hide gelatin for two hundred thousand.
With a smug on her face, she boasted to Gu Qi QI: “You still dare to compete with me? Why don’t you take a proper appraisal of yourself in the mirror!”1
Gu Qi Qi remained speechless.
She noiselessly communicated with the little turtle in her mind: “You mentioned earlier, that the quickest method to obtain lust point is by collecting intensive emotion, Am I right?”
The little turtle was watching attentively to the five year aged donkey hide gelatin in resentment, so he was completely caught off guard by her question. He hurriedly replied: “Yes, that’s right. The more intense the emotion the merrier. Master, are you planning to distribute donkey hide gelatin to save people in exchange for their emotion of gratitude?”
Gu Qi Qi dully laughed: “Saving people? No such plan for that.”
Since intensive emotion was acceptable, would negative kind of emotion be acceptable as well?
In comparison with saving people, she would rather be watching people, who are beyond redemption such as Gu Xue Xue, to bear the emotion of despair!
The little turtle became dumbfounded.
Why is his dear master giving such…… a sinister looking smile?
He definitely misinterpreted that.
1. [TL Note: Funny thing about this particular dialogue. If someone were to translate it literally or MTL (還敢和我比？你也不撒泡尿照照鏡子！) ,it would be something like “You still dare to compete with me? Why don’t you scatter urine in the mirror!”. While this is technically correct/ funnier, Al opted for the … appropriate context/ interpretation version… xD ]↩
