Xiang Huai finally appeared at the entrance. Before he could even speak, the rest had rushed over. “Are you here to deliver the painting?”
Xiang Huai nodded. The rest took the painting and hurried to the art exhibition area.
Xiang Huai did not mind and merely looked at Xue Xi. Seeing that the little kid had no intention of coming over and had even opened another door to walk away, he could only approach her himself and ask softly, “Have you eaten?”
Xue Xi nodded. “Yes.”
She then heard a few people arguing.
Xue Xi was slightly taken aback. When she walked over, she happened to hear Xu Fang mocking her. “Come, come, come. Let’s see how this replica can stand up to judgment. Ha ha, from what I know, there are only five truly famous replicas in existence. Other than the one that was damaged yesterday, the rest of the four are with other families! Those people will either not be able to deliver it in time or they will not lend it to others. Therefore, this replica must be fake! Ha, it’s up now. Hurry and take a look…”
The rest of her words got stuck in her throat.
The scene suddenly fell silent.
Xue Xi squeezed through the crowd and looked inside. Two people had already slowly opened the painting. Instantly, a grand and majestic aura swept across the area, shocking everyone.
Even Xu Fang could not utter a single word.
Everyone stared at the painting, and, after a moment, someone sighed. “…This is too similar. The aura of the real painting is just like this.”
The rest nodded.
Only Fu Chun, who was standing by the side, revealed a look of shock.
He squeezed into the crowd and looked carefully with his spectacles.
As their time was almost up, he reluctantly said, “Hurry, hang it up.”
A few people carefully hung up the painting, and someone whispered, “Be careful. Although I know that this is an imitation, why do I feel that this is an antique?! The real one is only so-so, right?”
Not far away, Xu Fang shouted in shock, “How can this be? How can there be such a close replica in this world?”
Only Fu Chun’s lips twitched as he silently swallowed his words.
How was this an imitation? It was clear that General Xiang had brought the real one! Ever since this piece was placed in the capital’s museum, it had never been borrowed again. Back then, its auction price had been as high as hundreds of millions!
General Xiang is using the entire country to spoil his girlfriend!
Unfortunately, the pampered little girl had a calm expression, as though she did not notice General Xiang’s good intentions at all. Such a high and mighty person like him could actually experience such a humble moment.
Fu Chun had to admit that he was gloating.
He suppressed his smile and looked at Xu Fang. He shouted, “Who allowed outsiders to enter? Security, control her! She’s already damaged one of the country’s cultural relics yesterday. If she came here today, I suspect that she has more ill intentions. Call the police!”
Soon after Xu Fang had been detained, the police arrived. Fu Chun explained the situation, saying that Xu Fang was suspected of intending to damage more of the country’s cultural relics and asking that she be taken away.
At this moment, the art exhibition was just about to open. All the wealthy ladies had arranged to attend. As they had witnessed everything, Xu Fang’s reputation was now totally ruined.
After the exhibition was successfully held, the members of Bin City’s Art a.s.sociation returned to the backstage and had a meeting in the office.
Fu Chun said, “Xu Fang has been arrested and the position of president is now vacant. You guys can choose a new president to replace her!”
Almost as soon as he said this, someone raised his hand. “I’m nominating Teacher Ye Li!”
Everyone present nominated Ye Li. Ye Li hurriedly waved her hands. “I haven’t officially joined the a.s.sociation yet. No.”
Fu Chun smiled. “Don’t mind the details during special times. Well then, I’ll leave Bin City’s Art a.s.sociation to you!”

That night, when the art exhibition was over, the staff carefully took down the painting, put it in the box, and respectfully pa.s.sed it to Xiang Huai.
Ye Li inquired, “Xiao Xiang, where did you get this painting from?”
Xiang Huai paused and replied, “I borrowed it from a friend.”
Ye Li hurriedly reminded him, “…Then you must be careful. This painting is too similar to the real one. It must be expensive. Hurry and send it back. Don’t spoil it.”
Xiang Huai nodded. “Okay.”
In the provision store.
When Xiang Huai returned, Jing Fei had already prepared dinner. There was piping hot food that was both fragrant and pleasing to the eyes. When Xiang Huai threw the painting to him, Jing Fei was so frightened that he hurriedly caught it. “Boss, be gentle. This painting is worth billions!”
Xiang Huai washed his hands and sat down to eat. Jing Fei rested his chin on his hand after sitting opposite him. “Boss, how far have you and Sister Xi progressed?”
Xiang Huai shot him a cold glance. “Haven’t you been too free recently?”
Jing Fei immediately covered his chest. “Boss, don’t look at me like that. That look is too fierce. I’m so scared.”
After saying that, he moved closer and asked with a smile, “Did you guys kiss?”
“…” How is he scared?
Undeterred, Jing Fei continued, “Very rarely, I take it. What about hugs? Do you have one every day?”
“Not that either? At the very least, you guys must be saying I love you every day, right?”
Jing Fei was confused. “? Not even that much? But that b.a.s.t.a.r.d Lu Chao said that you are a love expert. Boss, your progress is too slow!”
Xiang Huai: “…”
