I Invite You To Drink!

At first, Gu Xijiu had a coat on her shoulders. However, she was feeling too hot, so she took it off and threw it into her storage space. She took out the jade teapot and turned it around on her hand. She sneered. Was he trying to send her a message by giving this teapot to her? Did he want her to know that she was now at the same level as his regular counterparts?
Well, the last time he treated her as a passerby; this time, he finally gave her a gift as respect to her status. She was finally comparable to the people around her! Should she be happy?
Di Fuyi, thank you for your comfort! Gu Xijiu threw the jade teapot into the air, but when it fell, there was an outstretched hand that caught it. Gu Xijiu looked to the side and noticed that the person beside her was wearing a white robe. It was Long Siye.
“You don’t want it?” Long Siye asked her.
Gu Xijiu grabbed the jade teapot over and laughed. “Why not? This is probably worth a lot of money! I am having a financial crisis now, so it is not a bad idea to sell it for money.”
She turned and saw a pawn shop not far away on the street and walked toward the shop. “Let’s sell this and use the money to buy a drink!”
Long Siye remained silent, but he followed her. The pawn shop did not operate on Chinese New Year eve. Fortunately, the shopkeeper was inside the shop. Gu Xijiu forcibly opened the door and put the jade teapot on the counter. “Boss, how much is this jade teapot? I want to sell it!”
The shopkeeper was initially upset by her actions, but when he saw the jade teapot, his eyes brightened up! He turned the jade teapot round and round to examine it and then finally offered a price. “1,000 ingots!”
Gu Xijiu did not negotiate. “Okay! Deal!” The shopkeeper rushed to issue her a receipt and passed 1,000 ingots of paper notes to Gu Xijiu. Gu Xijiu picked up the paper notes and generously patted Long Siye’s shoulder. “Let’s go! I will buy you drink!”
Long Siye took out the jade teapot he got and put it on the counter together with Gu Xijiu’s teapot. “I also want to sell mine!”
The shopkeeper looked at the jade teapot that Long Siye placed on the table. It seemed the same as the one Gu Xijiu sold and the material also looked almost the identical. The shopkeeper pondered a bit before answering, “This one is also worth 1,000 ingots.”
Long Siye smiled and also accepted a few paper notes worth 1,000 ingots from the shopkeeper. The two left the shop side by side.
The shopkeeper was excited. The teapot that Gu Xijiu had sold away was made by a very rare crystal jade. The unique ability of this jade was that it could transform ordinary wine poured into it to become high quality wine. The wine would help in soothing and blood circulation. If someone were in a bad mood, he or she could be quickly calmed down with a glass of wine from this pot. This kind of jade was worth a lot even if it was a fingernail in size; not to mention that it was now the size of a full teapot!
The shopkeeper had been traveling around in his early days and had the privilege of knowing this jade so he could recognize it. Although Long Siye’s teapot looked the same as Gu Xijiu’s, it was indeed a normal jade teapot. Although it was also worth a lot of money, it was nothing compared with Gu Xijiu’s teapot.
The shopkeeper did not want to alert the two of them as he was afraid that Gu Xijiu would change her mind. After the two people left, he turned the jade teapot over and over again and looked at it for a long while. He was happy and smiled to himself.
He was rich now! This teapot was worth at least a million dollars! There was high demand for it and very little supply. He was worried that Gu Xijiu would regret when she was sober, so he planned to abandon his pawn shop and run away with the teapot.
