Chapter 5 Betting

Qin Luo was caught off guard and was taken aback. On the other hand, the man was quite calm, with a familiar appearance.

As soon as he looked up, Qin Luo saw an old man rushing towards her from the second floor at a speed that was completely incompatible with his age and image.

The old man is about sixty years old, with a small head and a big belly, but very slender limbs. He is wearing a pale yellow exercise suit. From a distance, he looks like a big human-shaped pear running.

“Little girl, did you just say that this is a bronze ware from the Western Han Dynasty?”

After the old man rushed over, he took a magnifying glass and looked at the bronze clock carefully. After a while, he raised his head to look at Qin Luo and asked sternly.

Unexpectedly, not only looking up close, it looks like a pear, but also the kind of tumbler that I played when I was young. I really want to reach out and push him!

Qin Luo turned on the mode of frantic complaints in his heart, but still maintained the faint smile on his face, as well as respect for an old man, “Yes, old man.”

“You fart!”

The old man slapped the magnifying glass on the table with a snap, his face was full of anger, a pair of tiger eyes seemed to burst into flames, and he glared at Qin Luo and cursed.

“Look at your young girl, but she has a lot of ability to open her eyes and tell lies! You dare to pretend to be a bronze with such a piece of broken copper and iron? It was in the Western Han Dynasty, you didn’t wake up. What about dreaming?”

Qin Luo didn’t expect this old man’s temper to be so violent, but she could see that this old man was a person who really liked antiques, but his eyesight was a bit poor.

“Old sir, my bronze ware is prepared to be sold to Jin Mingxuan. Before the master of Jin Mingxuan has made an appraisal, you just concluded that it is a fake. Isn’t that good?”

At this time, the old man looked at Qin Luo in front of him, a very beautiful little girl, especially her eyes were clear and bright, very energetic.

Even though he was scolded like that just now, the little girl didn’t see the slightest anger, her mouth still had that faint smile, and her eyes still had the respect he deserved for an old man.

“Little girl, you are a fake originally, even if Mr. Fu came to appraise him, it would be fake!”

Although the old man’s tone was better than before, he still insisted that the bronze clock was fake.

Qin Luo was too lazy to argue with the old man, the fact of this situation was the best explanation.

“Sir, you insist that I am a fake, and I also insist on making a shot. In this case, how about we come to make a bet?”

“Bet?” The old man was stunned for a moment and then nodded: “Okay, since the little girl has brought it up, the old man will accompany you! If this is the genuine product, I will take over at a premium of 10%, but if it is Imitation, the little girl will leave this thing to me to deal with.”

“Okay, it’s a deal!” Qin Luo agreed.

Because the old man’s voice was loud and loud, when he was swearing, Jin Mingxuan’s door was already surrounded by a lot of passers-by. Now when he heard Qin Luo say this, he immediately exploded.

“This little girl is so courageous, she dared to bet with Mr. Li!”

“This kid is either confident that what he shot must be genuine or has a brain problem…”

Old Li?

Qin Luo looked at the old man sitting there drinking tea in surprise, wondering if this old man is the old man she thought?

“Old Fu is here!”

There was a loud shout outside the door, and the onlookers voluntarily gave up a way.

Then, an old man in his sixties walked in from the door, with his gray hair neatly combed behind his head, with kind eyebrows, and wearing a dragon-print Tang suit.

The old man known as Lao Fu smiled and looked at Qin Luo, “You bet against Lao Li?”

“Yeah.” Qin Luo nodded.

“Little girl, it’s not easy! You are the first to provoke Lao Li!” Fu Lao laughed suddenly, then put on white gloves and studied the bronze bell under the spotlight.

As if a century had passed, Fu Lao Cai put down the bronze bell with a smile, looked at Qin Luo, and then at Li Lao.

Mr. Li anxiously urged: “Old Fu, don’t tarnish my appetite, just say it quickly.”

Old Fu smiled and announced the results of the appraisal: “This is indeed a bronze bell from the Western Han Dynasty, but it is too corroded and there is a crack at the bottom, so I can only give an estimate of 160W.”

“What?” The noise outside the door overwhelmed Old Li’s voice.

The street vendor in the crowd wanted to rush in and snatch the bronze bell from Old Fu’s hands. At this time, his intestines were all regretful.

A Western Han bronze ware worth 160W, he blindly regarded it as broken copper!

Lao Li also regretted, he still didn’t believe it.

“Is this really the bronze bell of the Western Han Dynasty?”

When Lao Fu heard this, he immediately stared, “What? You don’t even believe my appraisal result?”

“No, no!” Old Li hurriedly waved his hand, “Isn’t I too excited?”

After the crowd dispersed, Mr. Li took out a check and handed it to Qin Luo. He smiled awkwardly: “Little girl, I was blind-eyed just now, but my old man is willing to bet and lose. You take this check.”

Qin Luo glanced at the number on it and pushed the check back.
