The First Interstellar Energy Gambler - Chapter 114.1
Chapter 114: Glass Jade
As the white fog layer was ground away bit by bit, the green jade hidden inside also slowly revealed.
“It’s green! It’s green!” Lu Chun shouted again excitedly.
Lu WenShan stopped his movements, flushed the window with their water gun, and carefully observed the jade. The performance of this piece of elephant skin wool was indeed very good. He had started at the pine flowers and had already been certain that he would be able to grind out the jade. It’s just that with such a big piece of jadeite there was no way that it was all jade. He needed to judge the direction and depth of the jade before he could start to cut it, otherwise it would be too easy to make mistakes when cutting with the knife.
But Lu Chun didn’t understand these principles at all. He just watched Lu WenShan stop, and suddenly became impatient, and kept urging, “Uncle! Why did you stop? Keep on working on it, hm? Be sure to get ahead of that kid and finish your jade first!”
Hearing this, the expression on Lu WenShan’s face became indescribable, and he was too lazy to explain to his nephew. He only frowned and solemnly said, “Wait a minute!”
Lu Chun didn’t dare fight with his uncle, so he could only shut up temporarily.
【Hey, who is this assistant next to Teacher Lu? It feels like they aren’t helping at all, and like they’re just getting in the way.】
Lu Wenshan was a professional rank stone gambler, so it was natural to call him Teacher Lu.
【Ha ha ha, what you said is right. Don’t talk if you don’t know whats going on. Why bother annoyingly twittering like that? You’ll just affect the mood of Teacher Lu!】
【Ha ha ha, compared with Teacher Lu, our little Luo Luo’s side is much more harmonious. It’s nice to see that the husband and wife aren’t tired of working together!】
【Upstairs is so right!】
The viewers who were watching clearly saw and heard the dialogue between them, and couldn’t help but complain about Lu Chun. Fortunately, Lu Chun couldn’t see the live broadcast barrage at this time, otherwise he might have been angry enough to spew blood.
Lin Luo was still slowly grinding away at his the stone. While everyone was expecting him to continue to grind it, a ride of stone suddenly appeared in the window that he was grinding out.
The occurrence of a fault indicated that the direction of the jade had been cut off, which was a very bad trend. It could be said this was a big potential danger for Lin Luo’s jadeite. Unless the small piece of boxwood jade that Lin Luo ground out just now was able to grow very deep, then this small half of jadeite would be useless.
【What! What happened to the smooth jade layer?】
【It’s over. The exposed part of the boxwood green just now was just a little bit. It seems that the jade inside was only a little cover.】
【But it’s okay, isn’t there still half a piece of jadeite next to it? Maybe it can still win…】
Compared with the live audience, the audience watching the livestream on StarNet was able to see the situation in the window more clearly, and they immediately began to discuss the sudden ridge when they saw it.
However, Lin Luo was much calmer. He replaced the grinding wheel with the chrome knife, directly aimed at the location of the ridge, and slowly cut down.
The cutting sound of “zizizi” seemed endless. When Lin Luo finished the cut, Xing Mo immediately poured water on the exposed surface.
Seeing that there was only a layer of stone on the cut surface after being washed, everyone showed a disappointed look.
Compared to Lin Luo’s defeat, Lu WenShan’s side was grinding higher and higher in value. Every time he lowered his grinding wheel he was able to grind out jade. Soon he had ground out two palm-sized windows. In them the crystal structure seemed to be very good. It looked like the jade would be at least ice type, and they would have to cut it to see more then that. Otherwise, it was too difficult to judge the transparency of the jade while the jade was still wrapped in matrix stone.
However, judging from the performance of old pit elephant skin jadeite, it was no surprise that this jadeite was able to bet up.
Lu Chun heard the commotion from Lin Luo’s side and immediately showed a mocking smile on his face.
“Uncle, is that kid’s stone broken?” He couldn’t help but asked in a low voice.
Lu WenShan was startled when he heard the words and subconsciously looked in the direction of the staff of the Stone Gambling Association, only to see that the miniature camera on the supervisor’s light brain was firmly pointed in their direction.
He was nearly ready to have a heart attack from the idiotic remarks of his nephew. Had he forgotten that the people from the Stone Gambling Association were broadcasting live in holographic mode for the entirety of StarNet to see?
Under the holographic mode, those audience members were watching their every move right next to them. Let alone speaking in a low voice, even the subtle expressions on their faces would all be seen by them. Lu Chun’s actions were simply… social suicide…
“Really, I thought it would be a good piece of jadeite! What a waste of my efforts. If I had known then I wouldn’t have bet with him. How boring!”
“You shut up!” Lu WenShan whispered scoldingly as blue veins jumped on his forehead.
【Fu̲c̲k̲? Does Lu Chun have some sort of brain problem? You don’t have to gloat so obviously, right?】
【I know! I know! I’m live at the scene! I heard that this was the guy who insisted on challenging Lin Luo! He’s just waiting for Lin Luo to lose so he can take his gambling stone! Although Lin Luo’s gambling stone seems to have collapsed… but I still feel unwilling to see him lose to this guy!】
