The stone in Nian Yue’s hand was sparkling and translucent. It was white and flawless. One look and one could tell that it was a high-quality piece!

All the service staff in Gan Kun Hall had undergone professional and systematic training, so they had only just gotten to know the Energy Stone in Nian Yue’s hand.

However, the stone in her hand looked too good. The waiter had only seen a rough picture of it on television and was not sure about what Nian Yue was holding.

“Is there a problem?” Nian Yue’s brows were tightly furrowed and there was an indescribable coldness in her eyes.


“No.” The waiter immediately shook his head, his face extremely respectful. “Please wait a moment, I’ll report this to the manager.”

The waiter rushed to the second floor. Nian Yue sat down and took a sip of water.

She casually sized up the layout of Gan Kun Hall. The hall was ancient and fragrant. Even though the treasures placed outside weren’t unique, they were still scarce.

This was also an important reason why she had come to the Gan Kun Hall.

The value of Energy Stones was too high. If Jiang City’s Gan Kun Hall could not estimate the price, then it would be out of question for other antique stores to do so.

Nian Yue made a rough estimate of the value of the antiques in Gan Kun Hall.

At that moment, a man in his thirties walked out of the room. He was dressed in a black suit and looked meticulous.

This person was the person in charge of Gan Kun Hall, Zhang Zhi. At the same time, he was also the general manager in charge of Jiang City.

“Hello, I’m the person-in-charge of the Gan Kun Hall. Zhang Zhi, how should I address you?” Zhang Zhi walked over and introduced himself first.

Although Nian Yue looked like she was only 17 or 18 years old, her aura was not something that ordinary people possessed.

She might be the daughter of some rich family, so he naturally did not dare to offend her.

“Nian Yue.”

“Miss Nian, I heard from the waiter that you have a piece of jade in your hand that you would like to sell,” Zhang Zhi asked with a smile.

“Yes.” Nian Yue nodded, but her sharp eyes swept across the surroundings.

She had a cold personality and did not like crowded places.

Especially when there were many irrelevant people around.

At the thought of this, Nian Yue frowned slightly. “Manager Zhang, I prefer not to talk here.”

Only then did Zhang Zhi come to his senses. He had heard from the waiter that someone had brought top-grade jade to the shop. Seeing that it was a young lady, he reckoned that she would be more concerned about her safety.

He probably never would have thought that Nian Yue wanted to talk elsewhere because she hated crowds.

“Miss Nian, please.”

Zhang Zhi hurriedly made an inviting gesture and went up to the office on the second floor with Nian Yue.

Manager Zhang opened the door and brought Nian Yue into the room. “Miss Nian, is it convenient for you now?”

“Of course.” Nian Yue nodded slightly and took out the Energy Stone that was the size of an egg.

When Manager Zhang saw the stone in Nian Yue’s hand, his eyes widened in disbelief. “Did you really bring this back?”

“Why? Is there a problem?” Nian Yue raised her eyebrows.

This stone was similar to the ones outside. At most, it was of a better quality. Without its energy, it was just an ordinary jade stone.

“No, that’s not what I meant.” Manager Zhang shook his head hurriedly. He stared at the Energy Stone in Nian Yue’s hands and said in a trembling voice, “I wonder if Miss Nian can let me take a closer look at this stone so that I can give you an estimate.”

It had been a long time since he had seen such a beautiful stone.

His instincts told him that if he missed this stone, he would regret it for the rest of his life!

Nian Yue passed the stone in her hand to him. Manager Zhang took the stone with trembling hands. The moment he took the stone, he could not believe that he would encounter such a good piece of jade!

“Where’s the flashlight…”

Manager Zhang had thought over how he would negotiate with the young lady before coming down. He had only expected her stone to be slightly better than others.

However, when he held the stone in his hand and saw through the flashlight that the stone was clean without any impurities, he realized that the stone was far more valuable than he had imagined!

“Manager Zhang, do you want to make a bid?” Nian Yue reminded him.

This was just a useless Energy Stone. If it wasn’t for the fact that it could be sold for money, it would only be a lousy stone to her.

But obviously, Manager Zhang did not think so.

The young lady in front of him was able to take out such high-quality jade with such an astronomical price, while staying composed. Manager Zhang did not dare to underestimate her.

“Miss Nian, it’s like this…”

Manager Zhang wiped the sweat off his forehead and tried his best to look calm. “I can’t make the decision on this stone of yours. I need to get someone from the head store to appraise it and then bid for it…”

“How long will it take?” Nian Yue raised her eyebrows.

“It’ll take at least three days…” Manager Zhang was afraid that she would be unwilling to leave the jade here because of the time issue, so he hurriedly explained to her,” I can’t confirm the value of the jade in your hand for the time being. I don’t have any appraisal equipment here, so I can’t estimate the price for it at the moment. Why don’t you put the jade here first and I’ll call you three days later for you to come over? ”

“You don’t have to worry about accidents happening if you leave the jade here. The Gan Kun Hall will sign a contract with you and give you a preliminary estimate of five million dollars. What do you think?” Manager Zhang’s voice became softer and softer as he spoke.

The girl had a cold expression on her face. She didn’t even bat an eyelid when she heard him say five million.

At first, when he saw that Nian Yue was a teenage girl, he felt relieved.

Now that he saw how calm Nian Yue was from start to finish, he felt more uncertain.

“10 million.” Nian Yue opened her thin lips and spat out a few words.

Although she did not study much about jade, she had a photographic memory.

When she was resting in the hall just now, there was a collector’s item that was made of the same material as the jade stone in her hand. The price tag was 20 million.

She wanted this piece of jade to be valued at ten million dollars, which was already the minimum price.

“But…” Manager Zhang looked a little troubled. He didn’t expect her to ask for so much.

“If Manager Zhang has any doubts, I will take my leave first.” Nian Yue stood up and pretended to leave.

She had never been a patient person. The only reason she had waited until now was because of Gan Kun Hall’s reputation. She couldn’t be bothered to go anywhere else.

“Wait a minute…” Manager Zhang chased after her hurriedly.” I’m sorry, Miss Nian. This amount of money is too big for me to decide…”

Manager Zhang looked like he was in a difficult position, but he didn’t want to give up. In the end, he gritted his teeth and said, “I’ll pay the remaining five million myself. The minimum price is ten million dollars…”
