The shop assistant hurriedly said, "Ladies, it's like this. How about you take a look at other pieces? The ones you just picked out happen to have been reserved by someone half an hour ago."
Ji Yi and Tang Huahua looked like they heard something unbelievable then they looked at one another with bewilderment in their eyes.
Porcelain wasn't cheap and the seven to eight pieces of the ten they were interested in came up toseveral tens of thousands of RMB, yet they all happened to be reserved?! Wasn't that too much of a coincidence?
At that thought, Tang Huahua added, "Excuse me, who reserved it?"
The shop assistant turned around and walked around the store, pointing at the old wooden chair in the distance. "That lady with the face mask reserved them."
Ji Yi was the first to look over there. Even though the shop assistant pointed the person out, she was wearing a face mask and hat, so she couldn't see her face. However, with just a glance at her body, Ji Yi could recognize that it was Qian Ge, who she hadn't seen for two months.
Even though Ji Yi didn't personally know what Qian Ge was doing, when she found out it was Qian Ge who reserved them all, she knew what happened. Ji Yi was certain that Qian Ge must've seen them come in and paid attention to every piece they liked then stole them all right in front of them!
Of course, buying porcelain was just an act. What she really wanted to do was give her more trouble!
The light in her eyes instantly turned colder. She didn't say anything but shot Tang Huahua a look.
Tang Huahua immediately understood what she meant and smiled at the shop assistant right away. "Sorry to be a bother. We'll look at others."
"Alright ladies, if there's anything you need, please call me at any time." The shop assistant smiled and bowed then respectfully retreated.
After the shop assistant had walked quite a distance away, Ji Yi walked right up to Qian Ge, who was sitting on the chair while playing on her phone.
Before Ji Yi reached her, Qian Ge could sense someone drawing closer. She raised her face and looked over at Ji Yi and Tang Huahua.
Ji Yi wore a face mask just like Qian Ge, but Qian Ge recognized Ji Yi at a glance too. Because of the face mask, Ji Yi couldn't see the expression on Qian Ge's face, but she could sense that her lips were smiling in delight. It wasn't until she walked over to her that Qian Ge put her phone away and sluggishly leaned back in her chair then whispered, "I stole all the ones you picked out to gift to Director Yilu. Don't you feel especially sad and crushed?"
"That's about right!" chuckled Qian Ge. She didn't bother waiting for Ji Yi to open her mouth when she softly added, "I'm telling you, I did it on purpose! From the moment you stepped into the shop, I spotted you and followed you in. I asked the shop assistant to reserve all the ones you picked out. You wanna get Director Yilu a gift? I won't allow you to get your way!"
After she said this, Qian Ge ignored Ji Yi and turned her head to look over at her assistant behind her. "Say, we picked so many porcelain pieces out. Which one should we give to Director Yilu?"
Qian Ge tilted her head as she said this and repeated what she heard while eavesdropping on Ji Yi. "How about this azure vase?"
