784 A Bronze Tripod Covered in Yin
To her astonishment, Du Laifeng had enough money to purchase goods, and even found a source to buy them from.
Wasnt he afraid that those hoodlums would cause him trouble again She was unwilling to see Du Laifeng run the shop well again.
Without delay, Du Laifengs step-mother, Li Fengxia, called the leader of the hoodlums she had hired to do things for her.
“Niu Ge, Du Laifeng just got a new batch of goods in his shop.
When are you free Can you help me damage his shop” Li Fengxia asked.
“Really” Niu Ge was surprised.
As long as you can pay us as usual, well go there right now.”
“Sure, Ill transfer the money to you once its done,” Li Fengxia said with a smile.
Li Fengxia paid those hoodlums three thousand yuan a time.
They werent members of any gangs after all, so the pay wasnt high.
Three thousand yuan was enough for the five of them to enjoy a night of drinking and girls, so they were willing to take this job.
When Gu Ning arrived at the antique street, she went to the ladies room first, and took out a suitcase.
After that, she walked towards the shop.
She didnt use her Jade Eyes to scan the antiques placed on the stands by the roadside this time, but even so, she still sensed a real antique.
She sensed it, not saw it.
However, it wasnt a good thing, because a normal real antique could only be found with her Jade Eyes, and she could only sense Yin.
Gu Ning looked to the direction of the Yin at once, and used her Jade Eyes at the same time.
There was a bronze tripod on the ground in front of a middle-aged man.
Seeing it, Gu Ning subconsciously thought that it could have come from the ancient grave she had visited last time.
Although the ancient grave was in the capital, grave-diggers sold antiques that they had found everywhere.
In addition, it wasnt common to find a bronze covered in Yin, so Gu Ning had that thought.
It was also possible that the bronze came out from another ancient grave.
Another middle-aged man and an old man were checking the bronze tripod.
It seemed they were very interested in it.
The seller, on the other hand, didnt seem well, and it was obvious that his health was affected by this bronze tripod.
Gu Ning walked forward and stopped by their side, but didnt say anything yet.
They also noticed Gu Ning, but it was common to be surrounded by others on this street.
“Master, what do you think” the middle-aged man asked the old man.
“I think its a good decoration,” the old man said.
Although the old man said that, he was sure that this bronze tripod was highly likely to be a real one.
The reason he didnt say it aloud was that the stand owner might regret if he found out that it was a real antique.
“Its thirty thousand yuan, right Do you want cash or transfer” the middle-aged man asked the seller.
“Transfer please,” the stand owner said.
It wasnt safe to carry so much cash.
“No problem,” the middle-aged man said, then asked the stand owner for his bank account.
Within two minutes, the seller received the money, and the middle-aged man along with the old man walked away with the bronze, followed by Gu Ning.
After following them for around 10 meters, Gu Ning opened her mouth.
“Please wait a second.”
The middle-aged man and the old man stopped, then turned to look at Gu Ning.
“Young girl, may I help” the old man asked.
They werent surprised at seeing Gu Ning, because they recognized that she was the girl who stood by their side just then.
Gu Ning smiled.
“Hi, Im so sorry to stop you, but are you an antique expert”
It was a question, but Gu Ning already knew the answer.
“Ha-ha, youre right.
I work in the antique appraisal industry,” the old man replied.
“Well, I have several objects with me.
Would you mind having a look” Gu Ning asked politely.
Hearing that, the old mans eyes lit up.
As an antique expert, he loved antique appraisal the most.
“Oh, you have several objects which need appraisal Sure, Im willing to help since Im free now,” the old man said.
“Thank you so much! Please follow me,” Gu Ning said.
“Great,” the old man said.
After that, Gu Ning guided them to Du Laifengs shop.
It wasnt far, and they soon arrived.
The shop had just opened a small door, and it wasnt ready to serve customers yet, so Gu Ning directly walked inside.
In the shop, goods were all piled up in the hall, and Du Laifeng along with another man were placing them one by one.
Seeing Gu Ning coming inside, Du Laifeng stood up at once.
“Hi, boss, were just placing these goods, and then its almost done!”
The man standing by Du Laifengs side greeted Gu Ning as well.
“Nice to meet you, boss!”
He was excited to see Gu Ning.
This man was nearly 40 years old, and he had worked in Duji Antiques for many years, but Duji Antiques could barely stay afloat a while ago, so he quit his job.
Du Laifeng now called him to come back, and he agreed since he hadnt found another job yet.
Du Laifeng also told him about their new bosss influence, so he wasnt afraid that this shop would be closed one day in the future.
When the middle-aged man and the old man heard them call Gu Ning their boss, they were both astonished.
To their surprise, Gu Ning was the boss of an antique store.
Although those goods were all well-made handicrafts, none of them was a real antique.
“You can keep on placing them, I need to discuss something with these two gentlemen,” Gu Ning said.
“Sure,” Du Laifeng said.
Gu Ning then guided the middle-aged man and the old man to the office.
When they arrived at the office, Gu Ning put the suitcase aside, and poured two cups of tea for them.
“Young girl, Im surprised that youre the boss of an antique store.
Its very rare to see,” the old man said.
“There are very few young people who are interested in antiques.”
Gu Ning smiled and said, “I am interested in them, but I dont know much about them.”
“You can learn as long as youre interested in them.
Youre so young after all, and you have enough time,” the old man said.
“Oh, where are those objects you want me to have a look at”
“We dont need to rush,” Gu Ning said.
“May I ask you a question before we check them”
“Please,” the old man said.
