Despite that, Zhang Tiejun had still followed the mass into the auction hall without shame.
Someone like him was surely not here to bid for any properties or shops. He was only here to watch the event, as his target for the day was purely Mayor Gu.
What happened afterward, however, was unexpected.
Yun Jian was already seated at the auction hall’s VIP seats with Mayor Gu. It was due to his company that she was qualified to sit there.
Zhang Zhifan was flabbergasted from the delightful turn of events. Seated on the VIP seat and forcing himself to calm down despite his high strung nerves, his roaring emotions could not be described with plain words.
When the guests took their places, the auction officially began.
The host of the auction was a sultry woman. With swaying hips, she stood in the center of the stage showcasing a pair of bare, fair, and long legs.
“My honorable guests, hello! I’m the host of today’s auction, please call me Sis Li! Without further ado, we’re going straight to the auction. The bidding this time follows our usual protocol. Bids for all the property on auction can be offered after the auction begins. The auctioned land shall go to the highest bidder!”
Miss Li swayed her hips left and right as she spoke with a melodious voice and soothing words, giving a good show to some of the men in the hall.
Fortunately, Miss Li was not here to flaunt her assets. After a few perfunctory lines, the auction officially started.
What was being offered in the beginning were shops that were cheaper with locations far from the best.
Yun Jian was not interested in them. While Mayor Gu was observing her from time to time, occasionally striking a conversation, “Girl, what school do you go to?”
Yun Jian replied to him with a tight-lipped smile. “Longmen Yi Junior High School.”
“Oh?” Mayor Gu made a strange noise with his reply and chuckled before telling her, “We’re pretty fated! My grandson is studying at Longmen Yi Junior High School too. Not sure if you’ve heard of that rascal.”
Engrossed by the topic, Mayor Gu did not care if Yun Jian was interested or not. He began to introduce his grandson to her with a tone that was tinged with pride yet was also frustratingly helpless. “That rascal’s Gu Hao. If you meet him at Yi High, don’t go soft on him. Help me teach him a lesson!”
Mayor Gu was obviously trying to pave the way to a good relationship with Yun Jian.
For a household name like him to extend his goodwill to Yun Jian, Zhang Zhifan who sat beside her was stunned again after hearing what Mayor Gu said.
Yun Jian was that capable!?
The corners of Yun Jian’s lips curled up into a small smile. She did not verbally reply to Mayor Gu.
She was quite bewildered by the man. He had mentioned that if she met his grandson, she should be hard on him and teach him a lesson. It was strange to have a grandfather like Mayor Gu.
With a careless glance toward the auction stage, Yun Jian pursed her lips before uttering, “Finally.”
The land that she was going to purchase was finally being auctioned.
Mayor Gu was stunned. “What?”
Yun Jian’s reply baffled him for some time. She leaned back against her seat leisurely and gazed at Miss Li who was talking eloquently on the stage. Without looking at Mayor Gu, she said, “This shop, I want it.”
Mayor Gu followed Yun Jian’s gaze to see that Miss Li elaborating on the details of this land. It was a prime location with a high price tag. Ordinary people would not be able to afford the land.
In spite of it, Yun Jian sounded like she was going to bid for the land...
Miss Li’s excited and melodious voice then announced, “Dongchun Port’s Shop Lot No.1 is for sale, bidding starts at two million!”
