Fakes within the antique industry were next to nothing. Since everyone worked in the same industry, even if they were fooled, they would just let it beLosing money in this line of work only meant that the person wasn’t good enough. Others can’t be blamed.But hiding a radioactive substance to harm others was the equivalent of alienating yourself within the industry.Darren’s eyes twitched. A forced smile appeared on his face, as pristine as a white gem.“Master Naiswell, this must be a mistake! I was the one that brought this here. I even appraised it myself since it has such a good texture. If there was anything wrong with it, I definitely wouldn’t sell it to you…”“Cut the nonsense!”Avel immediately cut Darren off.“We’re all adults here. Let’s just cut to the chase. Since you’re trying to prove that you have no ill-intent, then that’s fine. Swallow this thing whole, then. Not only will I believe you, but I’ll also grovel and apologize to you! I’ll even let Flynn’s Antiques
The mention of the name confused Harvey.Faye Goddard was quite famous in Hong Kong; throughout the entire Chinese social circle, in fact.She was said to have taken extreme measures. During her time in university, she met a wealthy man in his eighties with just a first-class plane ticket.She was then married into a wealthy family before she even graduated. Her eighty year-old husband passed away when she graduated, and as a result, a huge portion of his assets all landed right into her hands.In Hong Kong’s upper social circle, Faye had the nickname of Black Widow.Her tricks or motives notwithstanding, she had the looks of a goddess. She was living quite a successful life in Hong Kong, Las Vegas, and South Light, and her face constantly showed up in magazines as well.Nobody expected for her to have relations with Flynn’s Antiques.Harvey frowned when he saw Avel’s face changing.Faye had some reputation of appraising antiques, and her nickname was quite frightening. The Nai
Faye sent Avel a playful smile.“Right, I’ll cut to the chase. You’ve heard of the Four Masters of Hong Kong, haven’t you?”“If you haven’t, then you must’ve heard of the top four families in Hong Kong, no?”Faye now wore a prideful expression.“The top four families are intertwined with each other. The Four Masters ofHong Kong are tied together like brothers!”“You must’ve heard of this phrase before.”The watching crowd’s expression changed slightly at the phrase.Hong Kong isn’t that far behind compared to Buckwood. It was an international metropolis on the same level as Wolsing and Mordu.In Hong Kong, the top four families stood at their peak.Rumors said that even though the families had disputes, they would band together if any of them were to be at war.One top-rated family may not be so terrifying.But if all four top families from Hong Kong were to band together, even the top ten families in Country H would have to fear them.For a place that’s close to Hong Kong
“According to your words, Princess Goddard, you’re saying that I can’t bring myself justice after you tried to assassinate Prince York and my family?”Avel’s face was ice cold.If it were only him that day, he might’ve just given in.But the legendary Prince York himself was right behind him. Why would Avel recoil in fear?!No matter how powerful the Four Masters of Hong Kong were, this was South Light. This was Buckwood, not Hong Kong!Darren stepped forward with a smile.“Master Naiswell. The more we debate, the more the truth comes out!”“Everyone here is experienced in this line of work. You should understand that misjudging an item is quite normal!”“The way I see it, I misjudged the item, and so did you!”“According to the rules, you should be taking responsibility.”Darren crossed his arms. With Faye’s support, he was unscrupulous and arrogant.Avel snarled, “You really think I wouldn’t dare lay a finger on you because you’re supported by the Four Masters of Hong Kong
Harvey was calm. “I’m just a small fry, no need to know who I am.”Darren sized up Harvey, then secretly took a picture of Harvey with his phone. Naturally, he was looking for someone to get some information on Harvey.Soon, Darren’s phone rang. He took a few glances at the phone before handing it to Faye.Faye revealed a meaningful smile after looking at the contents. “So, you’re the consultant for the government of Buckwood.”“I heard that the investment and business engagement forum you organized ended up failing. What, are you with Avel now? You’re doing pretty well, making money from the government and the gangsters!”“Right, you’re also the Zimmer family’s live-in son-in-law. So you’re making money there as well!”Faye’s gaze on Harvey was filled with disdain.A woman like her would usually admire wealthy sons and masters.Thus, she wouldn’t bat an eye towards men who climb ranks relying on women and sheer luck.Yet, the live-in son-in-law with a small status that she ha
Darren froze once more at Harvey’s words, then burst out laughing.“What? So your way of beating us with reason was to buy the entire shop?”“Are you venting, or just simply giving us money?”Before, Faye anticipated Harvey’s next move. She couldn’t help but laugh, and then turned to Harvey with a derisive glare. ‘Venting by buying things? Is this a joke?’‘There are so many things in Flynn’s Antiques, but not a single one of them is truly authentic.’‘Even if Harvey could pick out a few of the authentic items with his brilliant eyes, it wouldn’t mean much for the shop anyways.’‘Besides, picking out actual antiques would be free advertisement for the shop.’‘If Harvey picked out fakes, then that’s his problem.’‘But he seems so young. Does he even have skills to appraise antiques?’Faye wouldn’t believe it. So-called antique appraisers needed years of experience. An ordinary person couldn’t distinguish between high and low imitations, let alone authentic and fake antiques.
Nobody had ever seen a person buy antiques like this man.Wouldn’t people normally buy antiques only after slowly studying and appraising them?Normally speaking, antique purchasers were usually extremely careful.If they messed up, the losses would be unimaginable.People who buy antiques like Harvey were either rich tycoons, or complete idiots.Faye watched the scene with a disdainful grin. A smile full of disdain leaked out of Faye’s face when she saw the sight.Harvey had already bought a hundred million dollars worth of items. Safe to say, Flynn’s Antiques earned a hefty gain that day.If they advertised the shop properly, Flynn’s Antiques could even make a name for itself!Harvey wasn’t here to tear down the shop at all! Rather, he was here to give them benefits!Soon, Harvey’s shopping finally came to a halt.At this moment, he had about fifty raw stones with him.“Cut every single one of them open.”With a wave of Harvey’s hand, the master faceters started to work s
Harvey York stood indifferently in the field. However, it terrified and frightened the experts from the world of antiques and treasure appraisal that were present.How could ordinary people do this?Some of the appraisers, who regarded themselves as quite capable, felt humiliated in front of Harvey.Moreover, everyone was extremely excited.Only Faye Goddard and Darren Flynn’s complexions were horrible as if they had screwed themselves.They did not expect that Harvey would be able to do to such an extent!Sweeping away so many treasures in their turf.Although they collected enough money, it was certainly a mere drop in the bucket compared to Harvey’s profit.Harvey slightly raised his hand, gesturing the crowd to be quiet. He then said with a low voice, “Everyone, I’ll tell you one thing. I have selected all those antiques that would show green among the thousands of Flynn’s Antiques.“The rest is either waste or its worth doesn’t match the original cost.“Whether or not to
