My Wife is My Life! - Chapter 289
Ji Qingqing’s whole body slumped against Lu Lixing as they walked two rounds around the room. When they finished, she sat down right away and began to massage the muscles on her thigh and ankles.
“I’m so tired.”
“Take a short break and we’ll go back afterwards.”
Ji Qinqgging looked at him. “But I don’t want to move at all.”
Ji Qingqing resentfully muttered in her heart, He made me suffer for so long earlier, why can’t I enjoy this benefit from him?
Lu Lixing chuckled. “I sweated so much. You don’t mind it?”
Ji Qingqing waved her hand dismissively. “I don’t mind it. I sweated too. We can stink together.”
Lu Lixing relented to Ji Qinqqing’s shameless behavior. He turned his body and squatted down before her. “Get on.”
Ji Qingqing’s eyes curved happily. She grinned and climbed onto his back.
She didn’t know whether it was her imagination, but today, Lu Lixing’s shoulders and back felt broader than usual. When she leaned on him it felt more comfortable too.
It was so comfortable that she felt like falling asleep.
“Do you still want to go to the gym?”
“Of course!” It’s so comfortable, why would she not go?
——“Mission complete. Life point +10. Current life points are worth 18 hours.”
Lu Lixing carried Ji Qinqqing all the way back to their hotel room. Along the way, they met with a number of people and attracted some stares, but the two of them didn’t care.
When they got back to their room, Lu Lixing hauled Ji Qinqqing into the bathroom. At that moment, a ringing sound was heard from the phone on the sofa.
Earlier when they went to the gym, they forgot their phones in the hotel room.
Lu Lixing walked over. He took the phone and glanced at it. There were 58 WeChat messages and 12 missed calls. All of them were from Chen Shuyi.
Lu Lixing directly called back.
“What is it?”
Over at his end, Chen Shuyi was on the verge of being driven up the wall. “Where did you go?! I called you so many times and left so many messages! When I went to your room, you weren’t there either. It wasn’t until I asked the program crew that I found out you went to the gym…”
“Don’t beat around the bush.”
Chen Shuyi stopped in his tracks and calmed himself down a little. He lowered his voice and replied, “The situation is like this, you know when Zhenzhen and I married, I had just landed into bankruptcy and had nothing. Even my wedding ring was a 200,000 RMB diamond ring. Two days ago I took notice of an auction. There’s a blue diamond that Zhenzhen has always wanted. I want to buy it and give it to her, but the auction only invites specific guests. I heard that you received an invitation so I would like you to bid on it for me.”
“Wait first.” Lu Lixing returned to his room and opened his personal email on the computer. In his inbox, there indeed was an invitation sent a month ago.
The invitation wrote the auction venue clearly, and it even included a live-stream link for guests that couldn’t attend personally.
“Yes, there is such an auction.” Lu Lixing glanced at the auction’s starting time and asked, “It starts at 8 pm tonight.”
Chen Shuyi sounded really anxious. “Bro, it’s already 8:30. Quickly help me check if the third last blue diamond in the world is still there.”
Lu Lixing clicked on the link on the invitation and he was redirected to a website. Five seconds later, a high-resolution live-stream appeared before him.
Currently, they are auctioning a famous painting that was rumored to have been destroyed in a fire. But in the auction, the painting turned out to be undamaged.
The bidders were relentless and eventually, the famous painting was sold at a high price of 28 million RMB.
“How is it? Is the auction over?”
Funnily enough, right after Chen Shuyi asked, the live-stream displayed the next auction item which was the blue diamond he wanted. The large blue diamond was embedded in the ring and the hues were deep and dark. It quietly nestled on the display platform and no one could shift their eyes away from it.
The bidders bidded one after another and it was apparent that the item was very popular.
“Not yet. The blue diamond ring’s starting bid is 5 million RMB. What’s the price range you’re expecting?”
“Don’t bother about the price. Just help me buy it.”
There was a button that allowed the guests to bid. Each time Lu Lixing bidded, he would add on an increment of 2 million RMB. When the price reached 23 million RMB, there was only one other bidder left. Before the auction hammer fell, they yelled out a 24 million RMB bid.
“They bidded 24 million RMB. Do you still want to continue?”
Chen Shuyi fell silent for a moment. Then, he gritted his teeth and answered, “Continue bidding!”
Eventually, the blue diamond was sold to Chen Shuyi for 26 million.
“26 million RMB, congratulations.”
Chen Shuyi was close to having a heart attack. He forced out a smile. “Thanks.”
After hanging up, Lu Lixing was preparing to close his computer, but then an auction item caught his eye.
It was an interlinking ring that interlinked a white diamond and a bright blue diamond together. Under the display light, it dazzled gorgeously.
