Supernatural Rebirth Genius Girl Diviner - 67
Huo Wenhua turned to look at Yang Zimei.
He saw that she was still not anxious or panicked being looked at by everyone’s speculative gazes. She didn’t want to clarify or explain anything. She just stood there indifferently, as if everything had nothing to do with her.
He looked at her expression and didn’t explain that Yang Zimei was a Little Master. Even if he said it, no one would believe it. In fact, he might bring her trouble, so he didn’t say anything.
Yang Dejie was too lazy to take another look at her when he heard that Yang Zimei was just the daughter of that good-for-nothing Yang Qing. He thought like his son that she was some tender thing whom Huo Wenhua fancied.
Yang Zimei didn’t want to look at someone whom she hated so she turned towards Song Xuan.
Song Xuan was admiring a piece of hook cloud jade pendant from Warring States period. It was white jade and engraved with the Warring States period insignia. It was very delicate. Judging from Song Xuan’s appearance, he seemed to be very fond of it.
However, Yang Zimei didn’t notice any antique aura from this hook cloud jade pendant and sensed only a faint jade aura.
This was obviously a modern fake piece marked with the Warring States period’s insignia.
“Mr. Song, you like this?” Yang Zimei asked.
Song Xuan nodded. “This hook cloud jade pendant is the masterpiece of the famous jade craftsman Duo Lin from the Warring States period. I already have a few of his works in my hand. I really like it and want to complete a set.”
“Mr. Song, what if it’s fake?” Yang Zimei reminded.
Song Xuan was slightly startled. Then he gently smiled. “All the exhibits that can enter the auction are genuine and identified by authorized appraisers. No one will dare to fake one.”
“What if even the appraisers can’t detect it?”
Song Xuan was speechless. Indeed, there was no one in this world with eyes who could accurately identify the authenticity of everything. It wasn’t like there wasn’t counterfeiting technology that made items seem real.
But he was very familiar with Duo Lin’s work. This pendant gave him the same feeling. How could it be a fake?
But subconsciously, he believed in Yang Zimei. He believed that she had a perverted pair of eyes that could identity antiques. He had thought that she was special when she was five years old with that twisting circlet.
The auction was about to start. The people who came for the auction took seats along to their numbers.
Huo Wenhua’s seat was in the middle with the best line of sight. On his right sat Yang Dejie, his son, and his followers. To his left sat Huo Wenhua’s secretary and Murong Yunqing.
Song Xuan and Yang Zimei sat in the second row and coincidentally behind them.
The auction started. The first item was Han Dynasty’s Hetian ornaments. It started at $150,000. Murong Yunqing bought it for $500,000. He planned to give it to his grandmother for her birthday.
The second was Yang Zimei’s Northern Song Dynasty’s twin fish plate. The starting price was $200,000.
Huo Wenhua seemed to really like this twin fish plate. He called out $500,000 in one swoop, which startled everyone. They followed along in bidding. Finally, Huo Wenhua won it with $850,000.
Yang Zimei smiled until her eyes curved. She had spent $15 on it. She definitely earned that back.
Perhaps he listened to Yang Zimei because Song Xuan eventually did not bid on that hook cloud jade pendant. Of course, another reason was because the Municipal Committee Secretary started the bidding.
Therefore, Yang Dejie only spent $200,000 to take home the Warring States period’s hook cloud jade pendant. However, it was a fake!
