Hello Mr. King Chapter 136
The shock brought by the Ball of Blue Blood raised Percys and MonRoes status to a greater height. That was why their launch conference for their new product was followed by a lot of people in the upper society. A lot of guests attended it.
As the spokesperson, Yun Xiangxiang met a lot of New Yorks elite along with Austin. They were an equal mix of men and women.
Austin prepared a raffle when the new products launch conference was reaching its climax.
The prizes were all MonRoes accessories. The biggest prize was a blue diamond that weighed 2.2 carats. Its value was around two hundred thousand yuan.
That sum of money wasnt really big for them. However, a diamond that wasnt cut or embedded and could be whatever they wanted really excited them.
The guests that had invitation letters all could take part in the raffle. Percy stood by Yun Xiangxiangs side, "Yun, you can also go up and try."
The uniform scratchcard was shuffled by the vice president of the jewelry association who was invited. They were spread across the long table. The prize drawer picked it at random. Soon, some people got a pair of black pearl earrings, platinum pendant, crystal necklace
Yun Xiangxiang held a glass of champagne in her hand. However, she basically didnt touch her glass of champagne even though there were a lot of people constantly talking to her for so long. She could always distract them with smart conversation skills.
"Yes, Yun. Youre our goddess of luck. Try it quickly," Austin encouraged her too.
Austin and Percy were the main attraction to start with. A lot of the guests gazes were on them. Yun Xiangxiang couldnt reject them now that she got so many peoples attention. She put her wine glass down and slowly walked to the prize drawing area while lifting the hem of her gown.
"My birthday is on the second of February. I heard that the biggest prize, which is the blue diamond, is also 2.2 carats. Ill pick the twenty second piece then," Yun Xiangxiang said to the prize drawer smilingly.
The prize drawer immediately counted to the twenty second piece from the start and gave it to Yun Xiangxiang.
Yun Xiangxiang scratched it open by herself. The card read "The Star of Peace." She had an inexplicable bad premonition. Just as she was about to take the card away and said that she didnt get the prize, the lady by her side who was also drawing a prize gasped audibly.
"Oh, heavens! The Star of Peace!"
The house became silent with just that sentence.
Austin, Percy, and the other persons in charge immediately dashed forward. The reporters that were invited to the launch ceremony also surrounded them.
"Is it true that MonRoe is giving "The Star of Peace" Away as a prize?"
"Mr. Austin, why did someone draw "The Star of Peace"?"
"Mr. Austin, are you guys really planning to give The Star of Peace to this Oriental angel?"
The string of questions cleared Austin from his state of confusion. Yun Xiangxiang had already been escorted by Percy to one side. Ai Li who was always following her blocked the reporters outside.
"Mr. Percy, what is the Star of Peace?"
Actually, Yun Xiangxiang had already hazarded a guess. A jewelry that could be called "The Star of XX" must be the worlds top jewelry. It must also be one of a kind.
Percys experience told him that their company was backstabbed. However, he didnt lie to Yun Xiangxiang, "The Star of Peace is a piece of emerald green diamond that weighs a hundred and eighty-eight carats.
It was MonRoes collections highlights as well as MonRoes signature.
No other green diamond that had such an auspicious number and dazzling color existed in this world.
It was a priceless treasure.
"Your company has traitors," Yun Xiangxiang was very sure about it. There might probably be more than one.
It would require a ludicrous amount of human and financial resource to be able to alter the prize cards that were already settled.
Someone actually got The Star of Peace in front of so many peoples eyes. The guests today might not be top billionaires, but they werent people who were desperate for money. If they could get The Star of Peace, they wouldnt even give it for money even if MonRoe offered an exorbitant amount.
There was so much media too. This news must have spread by now. It wouldnt take until tomorrow before everyone knew.
If MonRoe gave The Star of Peace away now, tomorrow MonRoe would be a joke. It would be a huge blow to the company.
If they didnt give it away, MonRoes reputation would plummet.
The competition in business was this cruel. There would be people who cant stand to see MonRoe being this successful.
Austin was still bombarded by the media. If he gave it away now, the whole MonRoe would be disappointed in him. The top executives might even terminate his position because of this. Perhaps this was a conspiracy where everyone would get what they needed through colluding with outside forces.
If he didnt give it away, all the customers would be disappointed in him and this brand.
"Ai Li, make a path for me," Yun Xiangxiang said to Ai Li.
Ai Li might be a woman, but she still opened a path through sheer force. Yun Xiangxiang walked to Austins side.
"Im elated about drawing The Star of Peace," Yun Xiangxiang took over the mic. She turned her head aside and asked Austin, "Mr. Austin, may I ask whether The Star of Peace belongs to me or not?"
Yun Xiangxiang asked something that everyone wanted to know. Their eyes fell upon Austin.
Austins face turned gray. He nodded feebly, "The Star of Peacebelongs to you."
Yun Xiangxiang smiled more, "Since its mine, then I have the right to do anything to it. The Star of Peace means peace. It is my wish that peace is what it brings forth too."
Everyone quieted down. They had an inkling about what this Oriental angel was trying to say, but they couldnt believe it.
That was The Star of Peace! The jewelry that was one of a kind that nobody could resist!
Countless jewelry thieves lost their lives for it!
She didnt steal nor rob it. She got it fair and square. However, she
Yun Xiangxiang gave the prize card to Austin in front of their shocked gazes, "And now I will return it unconditionally to Mr. Austin."
Even Austin was stunned and he didnt know how to react, let alone everyone else.
There was someone in this world who gave The Star of Peace away so calmly!
This matter was unrelated to Yun Xiangxiang in the first place. Austin couldnt blame her even if she took The Star of Peace away. The responsibility lay fully upon him and the company.
However, this was too great of a cost. Until now, he didnt know who had this ability to pull this conspiracy off.
"Mr. Austin, us from China have a habit of giving good friends gifts during the New Year," Yun Xiangxiang still smiled calmly. "Even though your New Year has come and gone, the New Year that I want to celebrate is Chinas. So please accept my New Years gift."
Austin finally recovered from the shock. Tears welled up in his eyes as he looked at this beautiful lady.
She not only had the most gorgeous face; she also had the most precious soul.
"Im ashamed yet grateful to you, my goddess of luck," Austin took it with his trembling hands.
The Star of Peace couldnt be given away to Yun Xiangxiang, but he would try to compensate Yun Xiangxiangs loss from other aspects.
Yun Xiangxiang completely saved MonRoe with a single move.
He believed that if somebody else got The Star of Peace today, they wouldnt be as generous as Yun Xiangxiang to give it back with such a good reason too.
