Villain Subdues the Toxic Villainess At the Start - Chapter 20
The girls were chattering non-stop. The more they talked, the more baffled they became. However, they all thought that Lu Yu was deliberately angering Bai Qingzhi.
After all, Lu Yu’s attitude towards Qin Sisi and Bai Qingzhi was like the sun and the moon.
Will Lu Yu suddenly fall in love with Qin Sisi?
No one would believe that.
Lu Yu was unaware of their thoughts as he derived pleasure from the girl firmly grasping his arm. His height measures 175cm, while Qin Sisi, who is currently wearing high-heeled sandals, stands at approximately 168cm. As a result, their heights are nearly identical.
Since her earlier encounter with Bai Qingzhi, she has developed a state of anxiety. She displayed proactive behavior by firmly grasping Lu Yu’s arm. Given Lu Yu’s lack of resistance, her grip grew stronger.
“What are you nervous about?” Lu Yu found it funny.
How could such a beautiful woman become so worried about her own gains and losses because of him? It was a very good feeling.
“I…I’m not!” Qin Sisi was stunned for a moment before she realized something. She quickly loosened her grip a little.
“Let’s go in and buy something.” Lu Yu came to a halt and directed his gaze toward the adjacent jewelry store. He timely diverted the conversation. Qin Sisi did not give it much thought and instinctively complied with him.
The things in shops like this on the business street weren’t very expensive. The inexpensive ones were priced at a few yuan, whereas the pricier options ranged only in the few hundred yuan range. There were limited quantities of items priced at several thousand yuan as well.
Which made Lu Yu not feel any pressure to shop here.
The two walked into the jewelry store arm in arm. Initially, Qin Sisi displayed signs of distraction arising from Bai Qingzhi’s presence. Nevertheless, regardless of a girl’s frigidity, she could not refrain from succumbing to the captivating assortment of fine jewelry. Shortly thereafter, she directed her focus toward the jewelry store.
“This one looks good. That one looks good too.” Qin Sisi looked at this one and touched that one. Soon, her attention was focused on a bracelet. “This bracelet is so beautiful!” Qin Sisi let out a heartfelt exclamation.
“Wow, this bracelet is so beautiful!”
“I’ve never seen such a beautiful bracelet. It’s too beautiful.”
“Qingzhi, come and take a look.”
Whether it was intentional or not, the girls came into the same jewelry shop that Lu Yu and Qin Sisi went into.
Along the way, Bai Qingzhi only felt empty in her heart! It was an indescribable feeling. Although she had always thought that her feelings for Lu Yu were just those of a brother and a sister,
But when she saw Lu Yu and Qin Sisi shopping hand in hand, she felt very uncomfortable. She was already used to Lu Yu circling around her. It was natural for him to treat her well.
When the target of this affection changed to Qin Sisi, an inexplicable resentment arose in her heart.
Hearing her close friend’s words, Bai Qingzhi looked over.
In the center of the establishment, situated prominently on the counter, there resided a glass bracelet of exquisite craftsmanship.
While the bracelet’s translucency was lacking, it exhibited an abundance of assorted chromatic impurities. Nevertheless, bathed in the radiance of the lights, it exuded a vibrant luminosity.
“It is indeed very beautiful.” With just a glance, Bai Qingzhi was attracted to the bracelet.
“Haha, beautiful ladies, you have good taste!” The middle-aged male boss walked out at the right time. “This bracelet is the treasure of our shop. You can’t see such a magical bracelet in other jewelry stores…”
“How much is this bracelet? I’ll take it.” A voice suddenly rang out that made everyone involuntarily freeze. It was none other than Lu Yu and Qin Sisi, who were strolling over.
Seeing Lu Yu, the boss smiled awkwardly. “Uh, this… I’m sorry, little brother! This bracelet is for display. It’s not for sale.”
“Not for sale?” Lu Yu’s lips curled up. “There’s nothing in this world that can’t be bought with money.”
“Boss, name a price!”
The boss’s expression was bitter. “This… is really not for sale. It wasn’t easy for me to get this bracelet.”
“Although your bracelet is made of glass materials, the reason why it can emit so many colors is because there are too many impurities in it.”
Lu Yu said, “Plus, the translucency of this bracelet isn’t very good, so it’s at most 300,000. How about this? I’ll give you 400,000.”
“400…400,000?” The boss was shocked, then came back to his senses. “Little brother, you have good taste, but…”
“500,000!” Lu Yu said calmly, “If it wasn’t for my girlfriend, I wouldn’t be a sucker.”
Upon hearing Lu Yu’s proposed price, the middle-aged employer couldn’t help but audibly express surprise.
Indeed, he had expended a sum of 10,000 yuan to procure this item from an elderly gentleman residing in a rural area. The market value amounted to a mere 200,000 yuan. Regardless of his speculation, it would not surpass 300,000 yuan.
Now, Lu Yu wanted to directly buy it from him for 500,000 yuan? This young man was really generous!
When the customers in the shop heard the discussion, they all looked over. After all, most of the jewelry in this shop is fake. Tens or hundreds were normal. It was rare to see thousands or tens of thousands.
500,000 yuan for a bracelet? It was already beyond their understanding. That was 1.5 apartments in a fourth-tier city.
Bai Qingzhi’s best friends also stared at Lu Yu with stars in their eyes.
“Wow, as expected of Young Master Lu. He’s so generous!”
“He’s going to buy it just because his girlfriend likes it.”
“Qingzhi, look how good Young Master Lu is to you.”
“That’s right, Qingzhi!”
It was obvious that they thought Lu Yu bought this bracelet for Bai Qingzhi. Not to mention them, even Bai Qingzhi herself thought so. After all, Lu Yu was like this in the past. He was willing to do anything for her.
At this moment, the jewelry shop owner seemed to have thought it through and gone all out! He gritted his teeth and said, “Alright, since little brother has a discerning eye, then I’ll reluctantly part with it.”
Lu Yu smiled and handed over his bank card. “Swipe my card!”
