Reincarnation Of The Businesswoman At School Book 2 Chapter 340
"Hi, I brought some real antiques to sell," Gu Ning said. She didn't mention what had just happened at all, but she was very satisfied with the way Chen Darong had handled it.
The minute that Gu Ning finished her sentence, two surprised voices sounded at the same time. One was from Chen Darong, while the other was from outside of the door.
Gu Ning and Chen Darong looked towards the voice. It was an old man who was around 70-years-old, followed by two bodyguards. Seeing the newcomer, Chen Darong immediately went forward to welcome him with great respect. "Master Xu, it's so nice to meet you. You're always so energetic!"
"Stop flattering me. I just came to see whether there are any good objects for collecting. Miss, you just said that you have some real antiques. Would you mind showing them to me?" Master Xu quickly walked to Gu Ning and urged.
Master Xu had a great relationship with the previous boss of Xiangyun Antique-store, so Chen Darong was also very familiar with him. Master Xu was known as an antique addict around this street.
Gu Ning smiled gently and said, "Sure, please follow me, Master Xu."
Gu Ning then guided Master Xu to the lounge. They sat down in the lounge. Gu Ning opened her suitcase, and bared the antiques in their sight.
There were five pieces of bronze in all, including a bronze dagger, a bronze spear and so forth. Other than the bronze, there were also five other ancient objects, like the pastel plate, a pair of pastel dragon and phoenix bowls, a Chongzhen blue and white pen holder, and so on.
Both Chen Darong and Master Xu were shocked when they saw the 10 ancient objects.
"Boss, are these all real?" Chen Darong asked, and couldn't believe his eyes. It was too unbelievable to be true.
Although the 10 ancient objects weren't the most expensive ones among all the antiques that Gu Ning had till now, they were like a fortune in Chen Darong's eyes. Any single one of them was worth at least millions of yuan.
Master Xu didn't trust Gu Ning as much as Chen Darong did, because he had just met Gu Ning, so he decided to do an appraisal.
"Come on, give the identification tools to me right now!" Master Xu urged Chen Darong.
Chen Darong went to bring the identification tools from the counter at once. Master Xu was then absorbed in appraising the ancient objects. Chen Darong joined him too. The most exciting moments for antique lovers were when they appraised ancient objects, even if the ancient objects weren't theirs.
"It's real!" Master Xu was thrilled after the identification of the first ancient object.
Afterwards, Master Xu and Chen Darong appraised the other ancient objects one by one. During the time, they were getting increasingly excited.
When they finished appraising everything, Master Xu pointed at several ancient objects and asked Gu Ning, "Miss, what are their prices?" Although it was hard to get real antiques, people had different taste concerning collection, so Master Xu would only buy what he liked.
"How much do you think they're worth?" Gu Ning asked Master Xu. There were no exact prices for antiques, only approximate ones.
"From my experience, each of them is worth about three million yuan. Would you mind selling them to me at the price of three million yuan each?" Master Xu asked. He gave Gu Ning a reasonable price.
"You can just pay me eight million yuan in all," Gu Ning said. She had bought those antiques at the price of thousands of yuan each, so she didn't care much about its price.
Hearing that, Master Xu was quite surprised. "Really? Do you think that it's a profitable deal?"
Although she had to be very rich if she had bought Xiangyun Antique-store, she was a businesswoman after all. And the most important thing for a businesswoman was to make profits.
"Of course it is. And I also want to make friends with you. Please don't mind the fact that I'm very young," Gu Ning said. She understood that Master Xu was from a powerful family, and it wouldn't do her any harm to make friends with him.
"Ha-ha, ha-ha! Great. I like your personality!" Master Xu laughed and agreed. Although Gu Ning was merely a young girl, she was mature and stable, which left a good impression on Master Xu. He appreciated her ability and was also curious about her.
"Well, I personally like porcelain, but one of my old friends likes bronze. Let me call him now, and tell him to have a look here." Master Xu just made friends with Gu Ning, and he couldn't wait to help Gu Ning attract more clients.
"Thank you so much!" Gu Ning said.
"My pleasure," Master Xu replied. And he called his old friend at once. However, before Master Xu could say a word when the phone was answered, another old man said in the phone without delay, "Hey, are you back in the capital?"
"I just arrived, and I'm at the antique street now. Don't you like bronze? There are several pieces of bronze in Xiangyun Antique-store. Come on and have a look!" Master Xu said.
"What?" Another old man was obviously excited. "I'm coming right now! Wait for me."
Master Xu's old friend was coming. As the boss, Gu Ning of course couldn't leave right away. Thus she sent a message to Leng Shaoting and told him to wait for a while longer.
Gu Ning was busy with her business, so Leng Shaoting didn't mind waiting for her.
Around 40 minutes later, Master Xu's old friend arrived. He called Master Xu loudly before he even walked inside, "Xu!"
"Come here!" Master Xu replied, and an old man who was around 70-years-old immediately came over.
If Leng Shaoting had been here, he would have recognized this old man, because the old man was exactly Jiang Zhongyu who had been the head of the National Antiques Association. However, Gu Ning failed to recognize Jiang Zhongyu. Jiang Zhongyu was also followed by two bodyguards.
Most of the people in the antique industry knew Jiang Zhongyu, so they were all surprised to see Jiang Zhongyu walking into Xiangyun Antique-store. And the moment that Jiang Zhongyu entered Xiangyun Antique-store, many people followed him.
