Transmigrated into the Cannon Fodder’s Daughter - Chapter 37.2
Li Xiao followed Lu Haisheng and Cang Ming to a house. All the furnishing in the room looked exquisite and refined and would take immense skill to craft. The quality of multiple pieces wasn’t inferior to the coffin board she had bought from the Red Corpse.
Li Xiao couldn’t hide the giddiness in her eyes. She set the coffin board to the side, sat down, and said, “Is this table and chair for sale?”
“No.” Cang Ming was flabbergasted.
‘What a pity.’ No matter, she wouldn’t force anyone to sell their belongings if they were emotionally attached.
After Li Xiao sat down, a tea set floated down from a redwood shelf and gently landed on the tabletop. A stream of water appeared out of thin air and trickled into the purple pot. It was as though there was an invisible person making tea for everyone.
Sun Rui’s mouth hung open, dumbfounded. An egg could have easily fit into his open mouth. He finally understood the true meaning behind Li Xiao’s words.
This liar genuinely wasn’t human.
Steam rose from the tea in spirals, and Li Xiao took a sip. Li Xiao knew nothing about the tea, but it didn’t matter how good the tea leaves were. She wouldn’t drink it if it weren’t fruit tea.
Li Xiao turned to Sun Rui and said, “I think he’s a demon, so the technique he sold to you is for demons.” To her surprise, neither Cang Ming nor Lu Haisheng had any demon aura. She didn’t know what method they were using to mask it.
She momentarily paused, before continuing, “If one were to practice demon cultivation, you would have to change some of the techniques. After all, humans and demons are two different creatures, and their cultivation methods must be different.”
Yun Miao Mountain had quite a few supernatural beings, and Li Xiao had seen quite a few of them. She wasn’t someone who would confront a demon without reason. At most, she’d only get rid of the ones that ate people. But because she hadn’t communicated with the supernatural being all that much, the difference between a demon and human cultivation wasn’t entirely clear to her.
“So that’s how it is,” Su Rui and Lu Haisheng said in unison. They turned to look at each other.
The corner of Sun Rui’s mouth twitched. “You didn’t know either?” The anger in his heart dissipated after Li Xiao’s explanation. In the end, it turned out that Lu Haisheng hadn’t sold him a fake.
“It was the first time I sold it to a human. I thought we all cultivated in the same way,” Lu Haisheng said innocently.
Sun Rui stayed quiet. So, in the end, all he could do was admit that it was his bad luck?
“Although you did it unintentionally, you almost harmed my disciple,” Li Xiao said calmly.
“It’s my fault,” Lu Haisheng apologized.
Li Xiao wasn’t the kind of person to cry over spilled milk. “If you’re going to apologize, show some sincerity.”
Her eyes fell on the teacup, which was of spectacular quality. She could use it to make high-quality devices. Damn, everything in this house was high-quality! Li Xiao was so jealous! It was a pity that Li Xiao only had money and nothing else.
Cang Ming, who had been silent after entering the house, spoke up. “This guy is my underling. As an apology, pick anything you want to buy—”
Li Xiao’s ear pricked up. Wow! Was he going to help her buy something?
“I can haggle for you.”
The corner of Li Xiao’s mouth twitched. What a peculiar way to make amends. Good, she’d remember him!
Cang Ming and Lu Haisheng owned a house in the ghost market, so they should know which vendors had good items. She was going to go on a shopping spree today!
Li Xiao stood. “Let’s go then.”
Quan Yisen sat in front of his computer in the dark of the night, reviewing some of the information he had asked his subordinate to collect about Li Xiao today.
He knew that Li Xiao had thrown away the lilies he’d sent to her. He was angry at first, but when he found out why she had done so, his heart hurt.
Li Xiao’s stepmother and stepsister both loved lilies. The flower that Li Xiao’s birth mother used to plant was torn up and replaced with lilies. No wonder Li Xiao hated lilies. The flowers were innocent, and only the mother-daughter pair were to blame.
He shouldn’t have sent the flowers without investigating the truth. Quan Yisen silently wrote down all the wrongdoings of Zhan Jiayin and her daughter in his little notebook.
However, what he didn’t understand was why Li Xiao never wore the necklace he gave her. He had spread the word that he was looking for her. Hadn’t she heard about it?
After a while, a confident smile appeared on his face.
Quan Yisen’s angel must have cherished the memories between the two of them so much that she kept the necklace hidden to avoid becoming a talking point for others. She was so proud that she refused to trade the necklace for a favor for the Quan family. What she didn’t know was that he didn’t want the necklace—he wanted her.
His eyes softened as if he could see the radiant young woman standing before him. He recalled the times they met over and over again. The treasured memories shimmered, and Quan Yisen’s eyes became tender.
Suddenly, his assistant came over, holding a booklet in his hand.
“Boss, this is the auction roster for Fide. It was just sent over.”
Every quarter, before the auction, the Fide Auction House would send a copy of all the items to the big tycoons. After all, these big tycoons were their potential clients. One could always buy more, and the Quan family would often attend this auction.
Quan Yisen lazily flipped through the roster. Upon reaching a certain page, he froze.
In the photo, there was a phoenix spreading its wings in an attempt to fly. The image was so eye-catching that with just a glance, he could recognize it.
T-This was his necklace! Quan Yisen gave Li Xiao the necklace himself! How did it end up in the auction booklet?
