Chapter 79 – Who Says This Is Fake?
Edited by Effe
Mu Hanqi and Fang Linzhi looked at each other. Their expressions looked a little unpleasant.
Luo-shen’s paintings were indeed something not within their reach. Not to mention, it was a painting that was never meant for sale.
Xing Luo’s gift may really be a counterfeit ………..
They gained a number of faces from this gift earlier, now they would lose those faces because of this gift too…
“This Xing Luo actually gave Old Man Mu a counterfeit painting! Isn’t this deliberately trying to embarrass Old Man Mu?”
“Do you really think Luo-shen’s paintings are that easy to get? Since she can’t get the genuine painting, she had to stoop to get the counterfeit painting!”
“She can still gift other people’s paintings! Just like Yan Yiren, gifting a painting from a local painter!”
“Didn’t she just want to show off!”
Xing Luo’s eyebrows twitched slightly as she continued to maintain a calm and graceful posture. However, she thought to herself, ‘Why did the painting that she personally painted suddenly become a counterfeit?’
It doesn’t matter, anyway, she had sufficient evidence……
Listening to everyone’s discussion, Yan Yiren smiled proudly and said, “Luo Luo, it’s okay. I know that you are kind. You know grandpa likes Luo-shen’s paintings, so you wanted to make grandpa happy. That’s why you bought a counterfeit painting. Grandpa will definitely understand your kind feelings, but no matter what, it is still not nice to use a counterfeit painting as a gift. Don’t do this again next time, alright?”
Pei Qingzhan frowned and walked to Yan Yiren’s side and used his eyes to secretly hint at her to stop talking.
When Yan Yiren saw his eyes, the fire of anger and jealousy in her heart suddenly rushed up!
She had noticed earlier that ever since Xing Luo came, Pei Qingzhan’s gaze had almost never left that vixen! Now, in order to protect Xing Luo, Pei Qingzhan even wanted her to shut up?
She definitely would not!
She absolutely wanted Xing Luo to lose all her face until grandma too had no face to stand in front of everyone!
Yan Yiren pretended to not understand anything, maintaining a gentle smile and said, “Okay, okay. Let’s end this matter here. Even if this is a counterfeit, it must have come from the hand of a great master.
Luo Luo also just wanted to give a surprise to grandpa and wanted to please grandpa. I believe everyone will understand Luo Luo’s kind feelings. Someone! Come and keep this painting away first!”
[TN: She’s actually calling for a family servant]
Hearing that, Mu Hanqi and Fang Linzhi’s expression became worse.
Pei Qingzhan also frowned and there was a slight accusation against Yan Yiren in his eyes.
Just as the servant came to take the painting away, an old and steady voice rang out from within the crowd.
The servant stepped aside.
An old man walked to the front of the painting.
“Who said this is a counterfeit?”
“Old Master Huang, you…..what do you mean?” Mu Hanqi asked, puzzled.
This old gentleman, Huang Zhizhi, was one of the most well-known Master Appraisal in the country. Mu Hanqi likes to collect antiques, calligraphy and paintings, so he often went to art exhibitions and antique exhibitions. As a result, he got to know a lot of great masters.
Several great masters were also present in today’s banquet.
“Huang Zhizhi is a Master Appraisal. For him to suddenly stand up and speak, what does this mean?”
“Could it be that the painting is the real deal? Impossible! Mr Huang must have seen wrongly!”
“Even if he is a Master Appraisal, there will be a time when he makes a mistake as well! We’re talking about Luo-shen’s painting! How could it possibly appear here!”
Xing Luo narrowed her eyes and looked at Huang Zhizhi. She didn’t expect that this elder would be one step faster than her.
If the evidence that he pointed out was not strong enough, she would supplement them…..
Huang Zhizhi said firmly, “I could use my dignity to guarantee that this painting is authentic!”
“I agree with what Old Huang just said! This painting is the real deal that came from Luo-shen’s hand!”
An old man standing on the side agreed. This Li Jinshan was a master at the same level as Huang Zhizhi.
“What?! Even Li Jinshan also said the same thing!”
“Can the two old gentlemen show us the evidence?”
