Thanks to Ye Xuan’s memory, he remembered the addresses of several famous private pawnshops in S City where he was located, and with the help of navigation, he arrived at his destination relatively smoothly.
When the attendant at the door saw Ye Xuan came in with a big bag, he thought that this strange looking guest would probably be a big customer.
He smiled, greeted him and asked, “Sir, is there anything I can help you with? Are you here to buy or sell?”
“Sell”, Ye Xuan put the travel bag in his hand on the table and said, “I will exchange everything in this bag for money.”
In the bag were some things that were not very important to Ye Xuan, such as necklaces, bracelets, rings, earrings, watches and bags.
These things that money could buy were the first things he left behind after the world ended.
Compared with how he treated them as waste at that time, it was a good thing he was able to exchange them for money now.
As for the few valuables his mother left him, as well as the antiques that his father used to collect while he was alive, they were all locked in the cabinet in his basement when he left in his previous life, and they were lying safe in his space in this life.
For these things, Ye Xuan would never sell them unless it was absolutely necessary.
There were many people who brought one or two things to sell, but this was the first time the attendant had seen someone who brought a whole bag.
He opened the travel bag and took a quick glance at the contents.
Knowing that this was really big business, he quickly said: “Please have a seat and I’ll call the boss right away.”
Ye Xuan nodded indifferently.
It didn’t make much difference to him whether the big boss or a small manager came to attend him.
All that mattered was whether he could exchange these things for money.
Soon, the owner of the pawnshop heard about the huge pile of things that Ye Xuan had brought for sale.
He quickly asked the attendant to attend him, while taking a few of his subordinates to tally the prices of these things.
Most of the items that Ye Xuan brought had clear cut prices.
The prices of the few older items present were not too difficult to estimate.
The boss, after a rough inspection of everything, handed over the evaluation to his subordinates and came to find Ye Xuan himself.
He was really curious as to why this young man suddenly thought of selling so many things.
He didn’t look like he was sick or in trouble.
Looking at the items he had brought, some of them looked like they were recently purchased and others were old jewelry that had been worn for a long time.
They did not look like stolen goods.
The boss was really a little confused.
He sat opposite Ye Xuan with a teacup, and asked tentatively, “I see that you have brought a lot of things this time? How come you are suddenly selling so many things? Tell me, maybe I can be of help to you.
What issues are you dealing with?”
“Lack of money.”
Boss: Did you really think you could lie to me just like that? Did it look like you were short of money when you didn’t even bother to look at their price estimate? People who were really short of money tended to account for every dollar!
He looked at Ye Xuan and was about to probe more when he met Ye Xuan’s black and somewhat scary eyes.
He involuntarily closed his mouth.
From his appearance, although Ye Xuan did not look as good as certain famous celebrities, he was still enough to be called a handsome guy.
His appearance was kind of gentle and not aggressive.
He usually made people feel close when his face was expressionless.
If he smiled a little, it would simply show that he was a gentle and good person.
But as far as Ye Xuan himself was concerned, he was not a gentle person or even a good person.
Before the end of the world, he was a relatively indifferent and alienated person.
When the apocalypse came, he encountered a lot of things, especially after many betrayals, and the indifference in his bones was completely revealed.
Although he couldn’t do the kind of things that intentionally harmed others for his own sake, he also couldn’t put himself in danger for others.
It is said that the eyes were the windows to the soul.
After he was reborn, although his appearance was that of ten years ago, his soul was still the soul of ten years from the future, so his eyes looked a bit weird.
Even when he washed his face every morning, he found it a little strange to look at those eyes that didn’t match his immature appearance.
It was a very normal thing for the boss to feel that something was wrong when he looked at him.
Seeing his reaction, Ye Xuan lowered his eyes, put on the glasses he just wiped, and said nothing.
It was less than a month before the end of the world.
In order not to make others feel uncomfortable, Ye Xuan wore a pair of gold-rimmed flat-frame glasses for decoration.
He felt too lazy to put in more effort to blend in.
One-tenth of the people who had seen him in a month would be considered too many to meet again during the end times.
He didn’t really want to waste his time for other people’s sake.
Soon the pawnbrokers finished counting the value of the things that Ye Xuan brought.
It was about three or four million.
Although it was a lot lower than the original price, it was basically enough for Ye Xuan.
There was only one thing the boss was a little unsure about, and asked Ye Xuan, “Is this black diamond ring also part of the things you are selling?”
Ye Xuan glanced at the ring.
He remembered that it was an anonymous gift he received for Christmas a certain year.
He never found the person who gave him the gift.
He only saw a letter addressed to him in the box.
This time, as he collected a lot of his own things to sell, he ended up including it.
Ye Xuan’s intuition was pricked.
He frowned slightly and asked, “Is there any problem with this ring?”
“No, just looking at this beautiful ring, I thought it was a pity to sell it.
If you still want to, should I give you an estimate?”
It was a bit weird for a shrewd pawnshop owner to say this, but Ye Xuan, whose thinking mode had not yet switched to the peaceful era, read no meaning into it.
He had seen a lot of strange businessmen in the last days. This pawnshop owner was not the weirdest one.
Ye Xuan took the ring that was quite in line with his aesthetic, put it on his little finger and said, “Forget it, I won’t be selling it anymore.
You can transfer the account of other things to me.”
“Wait a minute, it will be done soon.”
Soon the pawnshop completed all the formalities, and Ye Xuan also received a text message on his mobile phone.
The transaction ended happily.
The boss, who was also delighted with the transaction process, sent Ye Xuan out of the door attentively.
He saw Ye Xuan put a suitcase on the passenger’s seat with sharp eyes, and asked deliberately, “Guest, do you still have more things to sell? Although I can say that I’ve bought a lot of jewelry today, I can still also buy some treasures.”
Ye Xuan followed his line of sight and explained, “No, I’m going to Australia.
This is a travelling suitcase.”
“Oh, safe travels.”
After watching Ye Xuan leave, the boss returned to his office, dug out a phone number from his mobile phone and dialed it.
Soon, a rather young male voice came from the opposite side: “Boss Wang, is there anything?”
“I just wanted to ask, is the black diamond ring you bought from my side still with you? I just had a guest here who came here with a similar ring and said he was going to sell it.
I was a little worried.
It hasn’t been stolen by anyone, has it?”
“Someone wanted to sell it?” The voice over the phone was a little puzzled, and asked, “How old is he and what does he look like?”
“He’s in his twenties, tall, and should be 1.85 meters tall.
He drives an off-road vehicle and wears flat glasses.
He looks like a good-natured person with a good face.”
The person at other side of the phone was silent for a while and said, “It should be from me, you don’t have to worry about this matter.
What about the ring?”
“He took it back and said he wouldn’t sell it anymore.”
“How many items did he bring?”
“There were a lot of them.
He seems to have brought everything that he didn’t need at home.”
Is there anything else?”
“Since it’s your friend, I’m relieved.
I’ll just say that the little brother looks extraordinary, so he can’t be a bad person anyway.
It’s just that there’s one more thing I don’t know if I should say or not.
It’s reasonable to say that he’s our client.
Client details should be kept private, but your family and our big boss have known each other for so many years.”
The man over the phone interrupted him impatiently, “Speak.”
Boss Wang said with a smile: “Then I’ll say it, don’t let him blame me if he finds out.
You also know in my line of business, I deal with a lot of clients everyday and it’s easy to notice some things.
That guest brought a lot of things and he sold a lot of them.
He said that he was short of money, and had to go to Australia.
You understand what happens in Australia right? As he is your friend, I had to let you know this.
Wouldn’t it be nice to have someone to take care of him? If he asks, don’t say it’s me.
You know that we have to keep secrets in our business, if not…”
The person on the other side of the phone once again interrupted his tirade and said, “Australia… I won’t say anything, thank you.”
“Why are you being polite to me, then do this first?”
A few hours later, Ye Xuan had already arrived in Australia by plane, and found a hotel to check in.
There was a casino on the first floor and a hotel upstairs, which was quite convenient and fast.
He exchanged most of the money in his card for colorful chips at the front desk, and entered the field with a transparent box full of chips.
Gambling was quite new to Ye Xuan.
He had never been to a casino before the world ended.
After the end of the world, everyone’s mental strength had improved more or less because of the existence of abilities.
It became a very easy thing, and he glanced at it occasionally when he passed by, not interested in the end.
Ye Xuan walked around the casino and once again realized the huge gap between human spiritual power before and after the end of the world.
Although he used to have a high level of ability, and his mental power had been relatively enhanced, he couldn’t be so much stronger than the current ordinary people, right?
To put it bluntly, except for games that relied solely on luck, he really didn’t seem to have any games that he couldn’t make money from.
Ye Xuan thought for a while and walked to a Sic Bo table that was being prepared, ready to bet in the next round.
“Senior Ye, long time no see.”
Ye Xuan heard someone talking beside him and turned his head to look.
Who was this person???
Ye Xuan: I’ll remember this boss Wang!!
