“President Huo, are you kidding me?” Huo Mian didn’t know how to respond to the koala stuffed toy, no more than half a meter tall, in her arms.
The dignified president of the Huo Corporation’s birthday present was only a stuffed toy that was worth no more than 50 Yuan? What a joke.
“Don’t you like koalas? I originally thought that I should give you a real koala.”
“Please, koalas are the national animal of Australia,” Huo Mian emphasized.
“I know, it isn’t hard to get a friend of mine to bring one over, but… the hard part is to find that koala a tree to hang in because it likes to eat tree leaves. Even though it’s easy to get a koala across the border, it’s very difficult to get the tree, so… I gave you a fake one to play around with.”
Huo Siqian spoke casually without a care, but Huo Mian was nearly driven mad by his words…
How could he even think of getting a koala for her? Had he gone mad? (TL Note: Well, Su Yu got himself a happy seaworld)
She loved koalas, but…
Wait, not even Qin Chu knew that she liked koalas, so how did Huo Siqian find out?
“How did you know that I liked koalas?” alarmed, Huo Mian asked Huo Siqian.
“I don’t believe you.”
“Then that’s your problem, okay kiddo… go back to your birthday with your toy, don’t let your man wait too long, or else he will come out and stare at me with those frigid eyes of his. I really hate his icy expression.” U.pdated b.y boxnovel.com
After Huo Siqian spoke, he walked down the hall with his hand wrapped around the hot girl…
Huo Mian hugged onto the grey koala bear, and after quite a bit of indecisiveness, she finally pushed the door and went back in.
“Huh? Why is there a koala bear in your hand? How cute.” Zhu Lingling took it immediately after she saw it.
Then she hugged it in her arms…
Huo Mian sat down beside Qin Chu, and after a few seconds of silence, she slowly said, “Huo Siqian gave it to me, he said it was a birthday present.”
“Damn… he’s pretty cheap. How could the prestigious president of the Huo Corporation give you such a cheap gift?”
Even Gao Ran felt unfair for Huo Mian…
“Never mind, I don’t have any ties with him anyways, it’s not like I would accept an expensive gift from him. It’s better that he gave me a toy.” Huo Mian however, was quite nonchalant.
Qin Chu looked at Gao Ran and then he slowly said, “Can you check if it’s bugged?”
The other three all froze upon hearing what Qin Chu said…
“Seriously…?” Huo Mian grew a bit scared.
Just then, she really didn’t think too much about the present, but Qin Chu’s question made her feel nervous.
She now had a strange relationship with the Huo Family, and there was no guarantee what Huo Siqian would and wouldn’t do.
Gao Ran then took the stuffed toy from Zhu Lingling’s hand, and inspected it all over, based on his professional experience.
Yet of course… there was something firm inside the bear’s stomach.
“I found it, there really is something,” Gao Ran reached in as he spoke.
“Huo Siqian you asshole, how dare you try to do this to me?” Huo Mian bit down on her teeth, her expression turning grim.
Qin Chu didn’t say anything, as he only looked at Gao Ran’s movements.
After much effort, Gao Ran took out the thing inside the bear’s stomach, finding a square brocade box.
It was dark red and looked quite high-end…
“That doesn’t look like a bug,” Zhu Lingling slowly said as she looked on from the side.
Huo Mian didn’t say anything, but she watched with great anticipation. What was really hidden in that box?
Regardless, Huo Siqian was truly great at scheming. He had to surprise them all with this gift.
If Qin Chu didn’t warn them, no one would even think that there may be something else hidden inside.
“Huh? It seems to be a bracelet…” Gao Ran opened the box and took out a transparent white jade bracelet from inside.
Even those that didn’t understand jade would praise how beautiful this was…
“It looks super expensive.” Zhu Lingling also touched it, and it’s cold surface felt very nice on the skin.
Qin Chu stood up and took the jade bracelet from Gao Ran’s hand. After glancing at it, he slowly said, “This collected item was bought last week at the Jiali Auction House for 8.8 million. It was the bracelet of a high-ranking concubine in the Ming Dynasty, and it’s said to be a treasured piece gifted by the Wanli Emperor.”
