The picture was an exquisite looking glass box. It seemed like Sheng Man had received a very precious gift. However, netizens were completely dumbfounded by the contents of the box.
There was only a single small round lychee in the box.
“What kind of lychee was it? Why does it need to be put in a special gift box?” One of the netizens asked and immediately got the answer.
“Could it be said that this was the legendary King of Fruits lychee?”
(T/N: You can read about “King of Fruits lychee” Here.)
Sheng Man’s high-profile nature still remained the same. She let everyone on the internet know that she had bought the King of Fruits lychee by uploading this picture.
There were more and more comments below the post. Ye Zhi put down her mobile phone as she didn’t care about what the netizens were talking about.
At that moment, the butler walked in from the hallway, and he was followed by a man holding a gift box: “Young lady, master has brought you a new gift.”
As the lid opened, a breeze of cold air flowed out of the box. Within the box was a red fruit with green lines running along it. It was a bundle of green lychees neatly placed in the box.
In order to ensure the taste of green lychees, they had to be stored at low temperature when transported.
“The taste of green lychees is unique and most of the harvest is bought by the Gu family every year.” The butler said, “Madam, the Master wished for you to have them, so please eat them as soon as possible.”
A single green lychee was worth hundreds of thousands, but now there were dozens of them placed in front of her eyes.
Ye Zhi roughly estimated the value. They were worth at least tens of millions. If she ate all of these lychees, she was afraid that she would burn her mouth.
In the past few years, the Gu family had developed the habit of eating green lychees, so green lychees were sent often to Gu Ren.
They were so expensive. Wouldn’t it be better to wait for Gu Ren to come back and eat them together?
After Gu Ren finished his work for the day, he returned home and was immediately greeted by Ye Zhi. She looked up at Gu Ren and said.
“This is too expensive.”
Gu Ren pursed his lips as he said, “Why does it matter if it is expensive, if you like it?”
Ye Zhi knew that she had to spend Gu Ren’s money, so that he would not suffer any misfortune. Gu Ren hadn’t been in any accidents recently.
Ye Zhi thought: “OK, but I don’t want to eat them alone.”
After Ye Zhi finished talking, she turned around and walked over to the table. She picked up a green lychee and walked back to Gu Ren’s side. While removing the shell of the fruit, she said, “We will eat them together.”
Gu Ren looked at Ye Zhi’s action quietly and didn’t speak.
After Ye Zhi peeled off the shell, she subconsciously handed some of the fruit to Gu Ren: “Try it.”
Gu Ren stretched out his hand slowly. His fingers gently touched the lychee and the fingertips of Ye Zhi’s hand.
When Gu Ren was about to pick up the lychee, Ye Zhi suddenly said, “Wait, you can’t eat it!”
At the same time, Ye Zhi’s grabbed the lychee with her other hand suddenly, while holding Gu Ren’s unretracted hand.
Gu Ren noticed that Ye Zhi’s hand seemed extremely cold after touching it.
He slowly raised his eyes and looked at the Ye Zhi.
Ye Zhi didn’t notice that she was holding Gu Ren’s hand. She explained: “I suddenly had the thought that if you ate this king of lychee, won’t you have an accident, right?”
Ye Zhi really didn’t dare to take the risk because something bad had happened before to Gu Ren.
It turned out that was her reason, which caused Gu Ren to laugh involuntarily.
