The First Interstellar Energy Gambler - Chapter 115.2
After Lu WenShan finished cutting out his apple green glass jade everyone thought that Lin Luo had lost, resulting in a general loss of interest in continuing to watch the match, but now that it looked like there would be a turnaround peoples’ spirits were reinvigorated. After half of the jade had unveiled a boxwood leaf green jade, the other half was ground down to reveal red. This kind of situation was really rare, and the crowds were extremely curious about what kind of jade would be taken from this part of the thunder stone.
“Hmph, it’s just grinding out a little red, what’s so great about it?! Can it be compared with our glass jade?!” Lu Chun couldn’t help muttering when he heard the movement from Lin Luo.
“You shut up! Don’t you know we’re on a live broadcast?!” Lu WenShan really convinced his nephew, and he is so hated.
In fact, Lu WenShan had a very good impression of Lin Luo. He had a calm personality and was good at analysis. Even in an unfavorable situation such as this, he was still able to maintain his composure. It could be seen that he had a strong enough mentality that he was sure to make some good achievements over time.
He additionally thought that his failure this time might also be a good thing for him. After all, failure was the mother of success. Only after experiencing setbacks would he be able to make better progress. Lin Luo’s path had been too smooth before. Lu WenShan had heard that Lin Luo had just entered the advanced rank, which was already very good for a newcomer who had only just entered the profession, but ultimately it was still a bit worse when compared to the veterans in the professional rank.
At that point in time, Lu WenShan would never have thought that he might lose even after he had solved an apple green glass jade.
There was only a little bit of red that had been ground out, and the window had to be enlarged to see what the situation inside was. Lin Luo went ahead and took a short break before he picked up the grinding wheel again and continued to grind away at the stone.
This time when the grinding wheel stopped again and Xing Mo washed the window surface, Han XinYu, who was standing closest to Lin Luo and the stone, took a sharp breath.
【This red looks very saturated!】
【And the type looks pretty good too, right?】
【I feel it should be ice type or above!】
【Wait a minute, does the edge seems to be a bit yellow?】
【Have you been blinded by it? What yellow?】
【It should be that the fog layer wasn’t entirely ground away, right? The previous yellow fog layer was very thick…】
Because there was too little yellow, it was impossible to judge whether the fog layer had simply not been ground off or if the yellow inside had really leaked. It seems as if the stone would have to continue to be ground down.
Lin Luo’s grinding wheel began to rotate again, and everyone’s eyes stared at Lin Luo’s movements unblinkingly.
When the ground out window was rinsed clean once more, everyone showed a sense of awe. They really hadn’t seen it wrong before; there was no longer any way to mistake that it was yellow! And it was a very rich golden chrysanthemum yellow!
【Double color! It’s a two color jade!】
【Oh my God! Camellia ribbon patterned! It’s camellia ribbon patterned! Judging from the window surface currently sanded out, as long as the jade is sufficient in volume, maybe Lin Luo still has the hope of turning defeat into victory!】
【Hey, although I really don’t want to pour your cold water, but there’s a glass type on the other side… unless Lin Luo’s is also a glass type, he’ll have a hard time winning…】
【Then just keep watching! No one knows what will happen until the very end!】
The uncertainty of gambling stones was its charm.
Lin Luo ground it down five or six times before he had finally ground open the window surface of the jadeite. The opened part was about the size of a washbasin. The crimson and gold chrysanthemum were perfectly blended together and looked very beautiful.
The combined effect of these two rare colors didn’t simply add the sum of their value, but instead multiplied the value several times. As long as the size was large enough and the type wasn’t too bad, Lin Luo might really have had the possibility of turning defeat into victory.
Lin Luo took a deep breath, replaced the grinding wheel with the chrome knife, pressed it against the edge of the window, and began to cut slowly.
As the chrome knife in Lin Luo’s hand cut down bit by bit, people’s hearts seemed to be drawn along with his movements. Whether there was any hope of turning defeat into victory depended on Lin Luo’s cut!
Cui XueLi was originally as excited as Lu Chun, but after seeing Lin Luo rubbing out the two color jade, she felt a palpitation in her heart for no reason. She suddenly didn’t care to look at the jade on Lu Chun’s side anymore and instead stared in Lin Luo’s direction and her eyes were filled with dread. As she stared, her mouth was constantly moving as if silently chanting a mantra.
But no matter where you are, there are always many bored and talented people. The radius of the holographic camera was five meters, so Cui XueLi, who was standing in the front row, was also within the live broadcast range. Of course, a beautiful girl like her attracted the sight of many viewers. Once they saw her performance, a few people began to discuss what she was muttering, and then someone who was good at lip reading began to interpret for them.
【If I’m not mistaken, what she’s muttering under her breath is… collapse, collapse, collapse, only be skin deep jade…】
