Zhou Zimo touched his nose and said, “True. That person surely knows the origin of this pen if he gave it to Aunty Zixi. Chen, are you betting on his feelings for Aunty Zixi? I’m really starting to think this isn’t working. We’d be doing all these for nothing if he doesn’t show up.”
Mu Yuchen’s eyes darkened suddenly as he sipped some tea and took a deep breath before leaning back against the chair. “On Lingtian’s birthday, there was a cake before Lingtian’s grave. We saw a man but only got his back because he avoided us on purpose, and he knew Aunty liked lilies. Ah Mo asked the guard there and found out that someone would send a bouquet of lilies over on the 15th of every month.
“At first, I thought it was Sis Lan, so I called the flower shop and found out that it was a 10-year order from a woman. I only found out it wasn’t her after I asked her about it. I think it should be someone close to Lingtian and Aunty, and there’s only one person that fits the role,” Mu Yuchen explained calmly.
“That’s Lingtian and Lingshi’s father! Do you mean that man still has feelings for Aunty Zixi?” Zhou Zimo asked.
“It’s just a guess, but I hope I’ll get lucky.”
Mu Yuchen looked down. The man just now offered $5.2 million after Gu Lingsha placed a bid of $5 million. Gu Lingsha then offered $5.5 million and the whole venue went silent.
“$5.5 million! Great! This lady over here has placed a bid of $5.5 million. Is there anyone with a higher price? $5.5 million, once!”
“$5.5 million, twice!”
“$6 million.” As the auctioneer was about to slam his hammer, another offer was made. Zhou Zimo and Ah Mo both noticed the bidder who had not made any offer just now.
“$6.5 million!” Gu Lingsha’s voice was heard loud and clear moments later.
“$7 million!” The man continued with another offer, and Zhou Zimo squinted as he glanced at Mu Yuchen.
Mu Yuchen turned to Ah Bao and said, “Find out about that person, and investigate Gu Lingsha’s purpose of bidding for the pen.”
“Then, we…” Zhou Zimo chuckled, “Gu Lingsha really helped us out big time. I never expected her to be so desperate for this pen. It seems like she does care about Lingtian.”
“How do you know that it’s not for Doris? Lingtian preserved this pen very well and rarely showed it to anyone. I’m not sure if Gu Lingsha has seen it before. It’s way too early to make any conclusions now, so let’s wait and see.” Mu Yuchen was being oddly cautious.
Despite just being a pen, its price had skyrocketed 4 times higher than its starting price! How impressive!
“$8.5 million!” Gu Lingsha’s sounded a little angry, proving just how desperate she was to get it.
The man hidden inside his room was about to continue bidding, but a bodyguard suddenly went up to him and handed him a phone. “Bro Yong, it’s Boss!”
Ah Yong quickly picked it up. “Boss?”
“Give up right now and leave through the back exit. Hurry. I’ve arranged for a car to pick you up.” A man’s deep voice came through the phone, and the call was hung up before Ah Yong could reply.
Ah Yong glanced at the pen before punching the table frustratedly and leaving the room. “Let’s go!”
His two bodyguards quickly followed him.
Mu Yuchen and Zhou Zimo waited for a while and noticed that the man from earlier did not increase his bid anymore, so the auctioneer raised his hammer.
“Hmm, that man doesn’t seem to be placing any more bids. That’s odd. He was pretty loud when he bid $8 million, but he’s running away now? What should we do? Increase the bid?” Zhou Zimo asked.
“There’s no need. It’s fine to let her get it. I want to know what she’s going to do with it too. Ah Bao, that man might have left already. Make sure to find him and don’t lose him.”
“Yes, Master!” Ah Bao quickly left the room after giving a brief reply.
In the end, Gu Lingsha won the bid with $8.5 million dollars.
There were still a lot of rare collector items after that, but Gu Lingsha never placed any bids again.
It was 10.30 p.m. when the auction ended.
Mu Yuchen and Zhou Zimo arrived outside the hotel through the VIP route while Li Si had already arranged for a car to fetch them.
“Master, are we heading back to City Z straight?”
Mu Yuchen frowned. “Is there no news from Ah Bao yet?”
“I just received news. The car went straight towards the outskirts area. Ah Bao also noticed another group in pursuit apart from us. Worried he might get noticed, he let the other group go in front. Ah Bao kind of heard that someone called Bro Yong is involved.”
Mu Yuchen’s phone started ringing as Li Si finished his sentence. It was from Ah Bao.
“It’s me,” Mu Yuchen replied.
“I’m sorry, Master. I lost them. The other group probably noticed us too, so I told our group to disperse. We found out…” Ah Bao sounded apologetic.
“It’s fine. Let’s talk about the specifics back at the hotel.” Mu Yuchen hung up on the call while his eyes darkened.
“We’re not going back to City Z?” Zhou Zimo asked.
“We might as well sort things out since we’re here already. Let’s return to the hotel for now.”
“Alright, back to the hotel.”
At the same time, in Hospital T in City Z, Xi Xiaye had just finished feeding her son. The nurse came and took the baby away after he fell asleep. Moments later, Mu Tangchuan came in with Zhuang Shurong accompanying her for the night.
“Have something to eat. You’ll tend to get hungry at night. Your father just returned from an event, and he brought you some snacks and porridge from the hotel. Here, have some,” Zhuang Shurong said as she grabbed the things from Mu Tangchuan.
