Everyone’s shock turned into the “Oh of course” expression when they realized that Su Yu was the one who placed that last bid.
This young master’s biggest hobby in life was to burn money.
“Young Master Su was the one who made the bid, no wonder… I was just wondering who was so generous.”
“Yeah, perhaps Young Master wants to gift the jewelry to a close lady friend. She’s so lucky, haha.”
“Maybe it’s Zhao Qingya, isn’t she one of his favorites these days?”
“I wouldn’t be so sure, I thought he has been ignoring her and found someone new.”
Some of the socialites discussed amongst themselves…
The MC was excited, “President Su of Imperial Star Entertainment just placed a bid of 50 million yuan, any other takers?”
The entire room fell silent…
“50 million once…”
“50 million twice…”
“50 million… three times… sold! Congratulations, President Su of Imperial Star Entertainment.”
The entire ballroom erupted into applause after the MC finished his sentence…
Qin Chu didn’t say anything, but the corners of his lips curled up into a smile. This set of jewelry was worth 5 million but was sold for 50 million. Not a bad day’s work.
“You are f*cking burning money… It’s only worth 5 million, you’re really brown-nosing GK… Oh, no, you’re sucking up to Huo Mian.” Even Wei Liao felt bad for Su Yu’s wallet.
“President Su, please come up to take your jewelry set.” The MC smiled.
Su Yu stood up, adjusted the collar of his suit and walked up to the center of the stage.
Two hostesses carefully took the jewelry off Huo Mian – earrings, necklace, and bracelet.
They then put them on a tray and handed the tray to Huo Mian.
Huo Mian placed the tray in Su Yu’s hands. “Congratulations.”
Su Yu took the jewelry in his hands silently. Then, he looked around and said, “Since I bought this set of jewelry at such a high price, can I make a small request?”
“Of course, President Su,” the MC immediately replied.
“I’d like a photo with Ms. Huo.”
Everyone in the ballroom was flabbergasted by what he just said…
Was Su Yu actually asking the model who showcased the jewelry for a photo? Wow, he was still as perverted as ever.
Huo Mian was a little surprised; she never thought that Su Yu would make such a request.
Embarrassed, she looked at Qin Chu…
Qin Chu, on the other hand, didn’t seem to oppose it. After all, they were in public.
“That… is not a problem, here, Ms. Huo, stand here.” The MC wasn’t aware of Huo Mian and Qin Chu’s relationship.
Therefore, he agreed to Su Yu’s request on behalf of Huo Mian.
Just then, Qin Chu slowly walked up to the stage, “President Su spent so much money, this is such a nice gesture to me and to GK. As a thank you, I would also like to take a photo with him.”
Then, he walked up and stood between Su Yu and Huo Mian…
“OHHHH SH***********T! Qin Chu is awful.” Wei Liao watched as he burst into laughter.
Su Yu’s expression was grim as hell, but he had no choice but to take this incredibly weird photo with the two of them…
This was also the only time in this lifetime that the three of them would ever be in the same frame… (TL Note: Don’t know why, but I felt pretty sad reading this)
Huo Mian knew that Qin Chu wasn’t going to let Su Yu get so close to her.
She almost burst into laughter when she saw Qin Chu walk up and stand between her and Su Yu, but she successfully suppressed her urge.
After the MC took a photo of the three of them, he handed it to Su Yu, “President Su, here’s your photo.”
Su Yu took the photo with an icy expression on his face; he didn’t say anything…
The sale of the last jewelry set marked the end of the charity dinner. Qin Chu held onto Huo Mian’s hand as they walked out together.
“What do you want to eat?”
“Um… let me think, I want hotpot. I’m craving spicy food all of a sudden.” Huo Mian smiled.
“Okay.” Qin Chu nodded his head gently, and the pair headed towards the entrance.
Su Yu was standing by the entrance; he seemed to be waiting for someone…
Upon seeing Huo Mian approach, Su Yu walked up to her. “Here, this is for you.”
Huo Mian looked at the set of jewelry Su Yu was holding in shock…
“President Su, you should save something this expensive for yourself. If my wife likes it, I can ask my department to design another one, just for her.” Qin Chu smiled.
“This is mine, I can give it to whoever I want. Huo Mian, take it.” Su Yu forcibly stuffed the jewelry box into Huo Mian’s hands.
