Ji Yi looked down, over at the object in the housekeeper's palm, and her eyes suddenly flew wide open.
It was a piece of nephrite jade so clear it looked like water; it was glossy and bright in quality, releasing a faint energy around it.
The jade must've been casually carried for many years. It was smooth and round, and it was thick and solid to the touch.
The jade was shaped like a crescent moon, and it was intricately carved into a lucky dragon. It was just as the housekeeper said - it really did look like an expensive piece of jade. The only flaw it had was a small chip in the corner, shaped like a crescent moon.
Ji Yi figured that perhaps the owner of the jade dropped it accidentally, causing it to chip when it hit the ground. Moreover, the shape of the missing piece looked a little familiar.
Seeing as Ji Yi stared at the jade in her hand without much of a response, the housekeeper prompted her with "Miss?"
Ji Yi snapped back to her senses and shot a few glances at the jade again before looking up at the housekeeper to politely reply, "It's not mine, but it's probably my friend's. I'll call him now to ask."
"Alright, Miss." The housekeeper looked like she was afraid to break the jade as she carefully set the jade down on the coffee table in front of Ji Yi. The housekeeper then turned around and walked back into the bathroom.
Ji Yi found her phone, took a photo of the jade, and sent it to "He Yuguang." "Yuguang Ge, is this yours? It was in the hotel bathroom."
After the photo was sent, Ji Yi glanced over at the time. "He Yuguang" should already be on the plane now, so she didn't wait for a reply and threw her phone back onto the sofa. Then she carefully took a closer look at the jade on the table. The more she examined it, the more familiar the chipped part of the jade looked. She reached her hand out to pick it up. The instant her fingers touched the jade, she immediately felt a sense of familiarity. Ji Yi's entire body shook as her face turned slightly pale.
Even though she didn't really know much about jade, this piece seemed incredibly familiar... It felt so familiar, it was like...
Ji Yi's heart jumped into her throat as she held her breath and stared at the jade in her hand for a moment. Then she got up and limped over to the bed and sat down. She reached over to her own bag, unzipped it, and pulled out her purse. As she opened the inner pocket, she pulled out a tiny red pouch.
She opened the pouch and pulled out a small hook-shaped piece of nephrite jade.
Under the sunlight, the large and small pieces of jade released the same glossy shine, looking like they were the same piece of jade.
Ji Yi hesitated for a moment before she took the small piece of jade from the pouch to try to piece it together with the larger piece the housekeeper found in the bathroom.
Although the chipped end of the jade was rubbed smooth, the outline of the crack still managed to join with the smaller piece impeccably.
Ji Yi stared at the conjoined pieces like her pressure points had been hit. She didn't move an inch.
After the housekeeper finished cleaning the bathroom, she said a few words to Ji Yi before she stepped out. Seeing as Ji Yi was sitting frozen on the bed without any reaction, the housekeeper drew closer. Just as she reached Ji Yi, she saw the two pieces of jade in her hand and suddenly cried out, "I thought this piece of jade was missing a piece. I never imagined that it was broken off."
With that, the housekeeper looked down and got a little closer to the jade. "This can be repaired. Miss, if you find a good jade specialist to fix it, you wouldn't be able to see the crack unless you looked closely."
