The First Interstellar Energy Gambler - Chapter 110.1
Chapter 110: Chickened Out
Hearing that, the woman with delicate makeup immediately changed expression, and hurriedly leaned to the man’s ear and began to whisper back and forth with him in a low voice. As they spoke, the two seemed to have a dispute.
The woman seemed to want to persuade the man to give up the jadeite, but the man was unwilling.
“Hmph, I’m not in your rock gambling circle. Do you think I have to agree to it simply because you want to fight? Don’t be funny! I like these two pieces of jadeite, so I’m going to buy them!” The man sneered and firmly rejected Lin Luo’s request for a gambling battle.
He looked at the stall owner, stretched out the light brain on his wrist, and said coldly, “Hurry up and finish the transaction.”
The stall owner’s forehead had broken out in a cold sweat, and he was hesitant on whether to complete the transaction or not.
The man frowned and said something to the stall owner in a low voice, and the stall owner hurriedly completed the transaction with the man. Lin Luo and Xing Mo became increasingly upset.
However, at this time the organizers of the Gambling Stone Rally arrived, as they had immediately sent someone over after receiving Xing Mo’s complaint.
The people who came were two staff members, one tall and one short. After seeing the situation on the scene, the shorter staff member walked to Xing Mo and asked, “Would you be Mr. Xing? Did you submit the complaint just now? We’re the market inspectors and will be responsible for investigating this matter.”
“That was me.” Xing Mo was a little surprised that they could recognize him at a glance, but didn’t think of it too much. He only thought that they had read his personal information, so he directly started talking and briefly narrated the matter.
The two staff members recorded his remarks before they walked up to the man and woman and asked them whether Xing Mo’s remarks just now were true.
“Hmph, it’s not at all like what they said. We’re just trading normally, and anyways the transaction has now been completed. These two pieces of jadeite already belonged to me!” After the man finished speaking, he shot a malicious smile at Lin Luo.
“If the transaction is not compliant with the rules of the rally then it can be canceled, even if the transaction has already been completed.” The tall staff member lightly and unexpectedly replied.
“What’s not in compliance?! Don’t talk nonsense if you don’t have any evidence!” The man choked on his words and roared with his eyes wide open, “Do you know who I am?! I’m the boss of Galaxy Energy!”
Xing Mo saw that the two staff’s expressions changed a little after hearing the words Galaxy Energy, but it wasn’t to expressions of fear or awe, but… disgust?
“No matter which company you’re the boss of, the rules are the rules.” The tall man was too lazy to deal with him and turned to look at the pale-faced stall owner. “Stall owner of booth 0256, do you have anything to add to this matter? ”
“I, I…” The stall owner’s eyes flickered, and he didn’t dare to look at him, obviously out of a guilty conscience.
“Please hand over your recorder, otherwise we’ll call for regional monitoring.” The tall man pointed to an inconspicuous decoration hanging on the wall of a nearby building. No one would have thought that it was a miniature surveillance device.
In order to promote the development of the Fifth Star Territory, the security of the Gambling Stone Rally was the top priority. In addition to deploying sufficient manpower to patrol around the clock, there were also multiple monitoring devices deployed to prevent any accidents such as this. It may have seemed like a trivial matter, but the impact it could cause couldn’t be ignored.
Especially since guest who submitted the complaint this time was Xing Mo, the famous national hero who had recently been popular on StarNet. He and his lover Lin Luo were both on the special invitation list of the organizers, so their complaints immediately attracted attention. The staff directly retrieved the surveillance records closest to the location of the incident. They were lucky there was a high-definition surveillance device on the left wall of the booth, which had recorded the entire event. It was obvious that Xing Mo’s complaint wasn’t groundless.
The Gambling Stone Rally was only a small-scale gambling event. The organizer hoped that after its reputation was established, it would go on to become a gambling market and public auction in the future that would attract more customers and jadeite merchants. They believed that would be the best way for them to make money and further their development. If this incident had been allowed to destroy the reputation of their Gambling Stone Rally, the consequences would definitely have been very bad.
It would have been wrong to look at Xing Mo and Lin Luo as simply young people as their influence was extraordinary. Didn’t these people see the amazing number of fans of Lin Luo’s social media platform had? Not to mention that the eldest son of the Yin family was even friends and partners with them both! So no matter which aspect they considered, they absolutely couldn’t just ignore this matter.
Before the two market supervisors came over, they had received instructions from their superiors that they must handle the matter fairly. From their observations after arriving at the scene, the situation of this incident was already obvious. It was the stall owner and his two customers who broke the rules of the Gambling Stone Rally. As the saying went, each family had their own family rules, just as each profession had their own professional etiquette. Gambling on rocks wasn’t a vegetable market. If a person was interested in a piece, they could just grab it directly, but you absolutely couldn’t just swoop in and snatch a piece that someone was still looking over.
 家有家规，_有_法 – Jiā Yǒu Jiā Guī, _ Yǒu _ Fǎ – lit. ‘A family has its rules, (as a) __ has it’s law’, phrase commonly used but with various things in the blanks and sometimes with the clauses reversed, common nouns used are nation or military
