Meanwhile, Xia Xibei remained calm and composed, showing no sign of euphoria despite just having earned 300 million yuan.
First, she returned 100 million yuan to Qiao Yanjue.
Qiao Yanjue had lent her 40 million yuan earlier, and the remaining amount was the commission that she had to give him.
If others knew how generous she was, they would come fawning over her!
Xia Xibei only had 10 million yuan to begin with, and there was no way she could afford the ore.
However, she decided to place her bet once she confirmed that the ore contained treasure, borrowing the other 40 million yuan from Qiao Yanjue.
It was just a casual request. She was prepared to find other ways if he wouldn’t lend her the money.
Anyways, she had also seen valuable gems in other ores, apart from the giant jade.
She could make a handsome sum if she bought the rest.
However, she would run out of time if she had done that. If Li Weiyun did purchase the ore, she would have prospered overnight, wouldn’t she?
Besides, it would have roused Li Weiyun’s suspicion if she managed to strike the jackpot many times in a row.
Therefore, she had no choice but to borrow money from someone else.
She chose to ask Qiao Yanjue after browsing through the long list of contacts on her phone.
In fact, she only wanted to give it a whirl. If Qiao Yanjue was reluctant to lend her the money, she would eventually come up with some other way.
Unexpectedly, Qiao Yanjue did not even ask any questions when she asked him for the money. Instead, he transferred the money to her in a heartbeat.
His decisive speed gave Xia Xibei mixed feelings.
She didn’t know that Qiao Yanjue had so much trust in her!
Qiao Yanjue had arrived at the capital when Xia Xibei called him.
When he chatted with his father over the phone last night, he was told that his mother had nearly gotten into a car crash.
Although she was alright now, he was so frightened that he came back at the first moment.
Upon his return, his mother told him that she was rescued by a beautiful young lady.
Otherwise, she would have been lying in a hospital bed by then.
After they moved on from the subject, his mother even tried to sound him out on the girl that he had a crush on.
However, he avoided all her questions.
His mother got so furious that she kept calling her son a stubborn donkey.
As the two of them argued, Xia Xibei called. Qiao Yanjue took off right after she told him that she was at the gem-gambling ground, leaving his mother stomping her feet in anger.
However, he was truly glad to see his mother so energetic around him, which meant that she was fine indeed.
“Who else did you borrow money from?” Qiao Yanjue was staring at the sum of money on his phone, dumbstruck by the string of zeros.
It wasn’t because he hadn’t dealt with such an enormous sum of money in the past.
However, the return rate totally astonished him! He lent 40 million yuan, and received 100 million in return in less than half a day!
It turned out that gem-gambling was much more thrilling than normal gambling.
A single cut on the stone could signify an astounding turn of fate. It was by no means simpler than any other industry.
It was a pity that the Qiaos weren’t involved in the jewelry industry.
“No one else. You were the first one I asked, and it was enough,” Xia Xibei said, shaking her head.
“You asked me first?” Qiao Yanjue was pleased, his heart fluttered and he felt butterflies in his stomach.
“Yeah, you’re the richest person I know,” Xia Xibei said with a smile.
“You’re not poor either. You’re a real baller now!” Qiao Yanjue ruffled her hair. “But how did you get into this though?”
She was truly bold and adventurous, to go all in!
“Because I wanna get rich.” Xia Xibei’s smile was unfaltering as she reached into her pocket, where her bank card lay. “It feels great to be rich.”
Most importantly, it would make Li Weiyun hopping mad!
