Both of them had to pay the price!
At Jerry’s words. Haylan, Maxwell, and Frode’s faces darkened
Was Jerry going to punish both sides?
Jerry’s gaze was cold as he said. “According to the rules of our raw stone market, no one can fight here Violators must be punished
“Regardless of whether you are a high-ranking official or a grassroots martial artist, you will be treated equally
Then, Jerry glanced at Haylan and the others and said in a deep voice, “However, on account that you’re all first-time offenders, I’ll punish each of you to pay 2 thousand dollars as compensation!
“Also, you two have to gamble on stones once to resolve your grudges.”
Jerry didn’t know Maxwell, but he knew Simon.
Simon was a famous young master in Lightdom City. Like Leo and Fiona from the Richards family, they were all well-known second-generation heirs. Moreover, Simon was backed by the aristocratic family in Lightdom City, the Zabel family.
Simon was standing on Haylan’s side and even talked to Haylan so respectfully. Clearly. Haylan had an extraordinary background
Therefore, Jerry did not dare to make Haylan and Frode pay too much. Jerry only fined them 2 thousand dollars and let them gamble on stones once. Not only could it increase the reputation and popularity of the raw stone market, but Jerry could also see what kind of abilities Itaylan had.
This was a method of killing three birds with one stone. Jerry would not offend either side, but he could protect his own interests and authority.
“Gambling on stones?” Haylan was stunned.
To put it bluntly, it’s a stone gambling competition to see who can find the one containing the emerald from a pile of raw stones! The one who obtains the gem of bener quality will win.” Simon explained
“Mr. Griffith, you want me to gamble on stones with an inexperienced layman? You must be joking, right?
Frode looked displeased and even glanced coldly at Haylan.
Frode was a treasure appraisal master in the gem industry and was highly respected. Each of his salaries was usually at least hundreds of thousands of dollars. Competing with a layman like Haylan would lower Frode’s value.
“To be precise, Haylan is not worthy of competing with Mr. Harrod Maxwell said disdainfully.
“Why?” Jerry frowned.
Maxwell pointed at the raw stone in the auction hall and mocked, “Mr. Harrod concluded that this raw stone can produce top-grade gem, but Haylan said that the gem in it is very ordinary and unqualified.
“Mr. Griffith, do you think a layman like him is worthy of competing with Mr. Harrod?”
Hearing this, Simon was speechless.
Simon wanted to retort, but the words wouldn’t come.
Because Simon also understood that raw stone before and felt that it was really very valuable. At the very least, it had a top-grade gem inside.
If it was lucky enough, it might be a natural emerald, which would be even more expensive.
However, Haylan said that the stone was very ordinary. In that case, Simon didn’t even know how to speak for Haylan at all.
This raw stone was a stone that they had been hyping up for a long time. Their goal was to use that stone to make their raw
stone market famous.
As long as the raw stone could produce top-grade gem, the raw stone market would definitely become famous in the gem industry and attract many customers.
If it was really as Haylan said, and the raw stone only had an ordinary emerald pendant inside, it would bring a negative influence to the raw stone market.
“Haylan, you should know your limits. A layman and country bumpkin like you is not even worthy of carrying Mr. Harrod’s shoes. Apologize quickly and get lost!” Jerry said coldly.
*If he thinks that the raw stone can produce a top-grade gem, he is indeed not qualified to compete with me,” Haylan said
“What did you say? I’m not qualified to compete with you? The veins on Frode’s forehead bulged, and his eyes were as cold
“Blind old man, go home and rest well. Don’t come out and embarrass yourself” Haylan said calmly
“You dare to look down on me?”
It was the first time for Frode to be looked down upon like this. Frode flew into a rage on the spot and said in a deep voice, “Alright, I agree to gamble on stones with you, but I want to add a bet.
“If you lose, you have to kneel down and call me Grandpa and lick my toes”
“What if you lose? Haylan asked calmly.
“It’s impossible for me to lose,” Frode said confidently
“No one will always be the winner. There will always be times when they lose You’re no exception,” said Haylan
“If I lose, what do you want?” Frode said angrily
“It’s very simple. If you lose, krieel down and call me Grandpa”
Haylan’s expression was calm. He raised a finger and said, “However, I don’t need you to lick my toes. You only need to give me two million dollars.
“If I lose, I’ll do as you say!”
“Alright, no problem!” Frode agreed immediately.
“Alright, since both of you have agreed. let’s go and prepare,” Jerry said.
“The stalls on this floor won’t do. There were no good stones. It’s not a good place for stone gambling,” said Haylan.
“Arrogant! You? How can you tell what’s good and what’s bad? Maxwell mocked.
“You are ignorant, prejudiced, and arrogant. You don’t even think before you speak. Are you sure you are from the Rivers family? Maxwell, you’ve really humiliated your father’s reputation Haylan glanced at Maxwell.
“What did you say?” Maxwell’s eyes turned cold.
“Look Something green appears!
Just as Maxwell was about to find trouble with Haylan, a scream suddenly came from the auction hall.
The crowd surged with excitement. Everyone wanted to see what kind of top-grade gem could be produced from that stone.
At this moment, the host lowered a huge projection screen and projected the emerald pendant that was cut on the screen, showing it to everyone
Then, the host said in disappointment, “It’s a gem, but unfortunately, it’s not a top-grade gem. It’s just a relatively ordinary piece of gem
As soon as these words were spoken, everyone fell silent.
Maxwell and Frode, who originally wanted to mock Haylan, instantly had extremely gloomy expressions.
