Ling Baifei knew that Li Xiaonian was a man of his word, so he immediately contacted his cousin Luo Wen to tell her about Li Xiaonian’s house purchase conditions.
Luo Wen was anxious to sell the villa. She thought Li Xiaonian was a rich friend of Ling Baifei, so she immediately agreed to meet with Li Xiaonian to discuss the issue in detail.
The other side.
Li Xiaonian logged in to the game and left a message to Gu Tong, saying that he had no time to log in to the game today. Then he immediately exited the game, told his sister to stay at home, and then hurried out.
When he went to the gate of the community,
At a glance, he saw Hong Xide, the enemy who killed his parents in his previous life. He fought back the killing intent in his heart, pretended not to know him, and left indifferently.
However, Hong Xide greeted him with a kind smile, “Little brother, hello, I am a new security guard of this community. Do you live in this community? It’s a pleasure to meet you.”
Li Xiaonian’s body tensed, and he simply said, “OK.” Then he ignored Hong Xide and walked away.
Hong Xide’s eyes narrowed slightly, and he stared at Li Xiaonian’s back suspiciously, thinking to himself: “Judging from his defensive walking posture and his wary attitude to strangers, he must have practiced martial arts.”
Li Xiaonian had no idea that due to tension, his body instinctively put on a defensive posture, which was noticed by Hong Xide.
As soon as Li Xiaonian walked out of the gate of the community, his body trembled slightly. He could sense that Hong Xide was watching him. This was a gut feeling, an instinctive response to danger.
“Shit, why am I suddenly on his radar? No, I’m moving out of this community today anyway.”
Li Xiaonian’s heart sank but he could only continue to walk as if nothing had happened.
Star Moon Bay Cafe.
This was the place where Ling Baifei’s cousin asked Li Xiaonian to meet.
The cafe was upscale. Li Xiaonian took a look at his clothes, which was cheap casual sportswear, but it was already his best outfit.
In order to successfully buy the villa, however, he could only bite the bullet and enter the cafe.
“Sir, welcome, do you have an appointment?” The waitress’ attitude was very nice.
“Hey, Li Xiaonian, this way, Room 101, Block B on the second floor.” Ling Baifei stood on the second floor and waved to Li Xiaonian.
The waitress smiled and made a ‘please’ gesture.
Entering the room, at a glance, Li Xiaonian saw a pretty girl with a tall nose and short black hair wearing light make-up. Wearing khaki trousers and a white T-shirt, she looked very sunny.
Li Xiaonian looked Luo Wen over, so did Luo Wen at him. When she saw Li Xiaonian’s appearance and outfit, she immediately frowned.
Judging from the way Li Xiaonian was dressed and his temperament, he absolutely couldn’t afford a villa.
Out of politeness, Luo Wen still nodded, “You are Li Xiaonian, right? Please sit down.”
“Thank you, Cousin.” Li Xiaonian followed Ling Baifei to call her “Cousin.”
Luo Wen gave him a fake smirk. “Did you come alone?”
After getting this answer, Luo Wen continued to ask, “Since you want to buy my villa, your family must be very rich, right? What kind of business do you do?”
Li Xiaonian looked at Ling Baifei awkwardly as if asking him: Didn’t you tell her about my family’s condition?
Ling Baifei could only say, “Cousin, Li Xiaonian is my classmate. His family is not rich, but from what I knew of him, if he says he can buy it, he definitely can. I’ll vouch for him.”
Ling Baifei knew that if his cousin knew Li Xiaonian’s family condition in advance, she wouldn’t have even given Li Xiaonian a chance to meet her. Out of trust in Li Xiaonian, he could only hide it in advance.
Luo Wen sneered. She could tell that Li Xiaonian’s family condition was as ordinary as his clothes.
Ling Baifei hurriedly continued, “Xiaonian said he would pay you 600,000 yuan in advance, and the remaining down payment and mortgage would be paid off within two months at the latest. If he cannot pay off the money, you have the right to unconditionally take back the villa. And this can be guaranteed with a contract. Besides, you won’t have any loss. It is nothing more than getting your money back a little later.”
Luo Wen didn’t bother to play polite. She stared at Li Xiaonian, saying, “The villa is worth 16 million. This is not a small amount of money. Why should I believe that you can pay off the money in two months? Plus hundreds of thousands of yuan in transaction taxes, the cost will only be even more. Besides, your family is not rich. Why do you have to buy a luxury villa? Or is your aim not the villa at all, but to use the villa to gain the trust of others to commit fraud or other illegal acts?”
“Sister, you’re too much.” Ling Baifei glared at Luo Wen, his eyes full of warnings.
Luo Wen shrugged nonchalantly and still stared at Li Xiaonian, waiting for his answer.
Li Xiaonian knew that if he couldn’t convince Luo Wen, he wouldn’t be able to get the villa.
After pondering for a long while, Li Xiaonian poured himself a cup of coffee, took a sip, and said, “Cousin, I can understand your concern. But if I tell you I want to buy the villa because I have faith in myself, will you believe it?”
Glancing at Li Xiaonian’s confident face, Luo Wen curled her lips. “Do you think I will?”
“Okay, I know, just because of a few words of mine, Xiaobai may believe me, but you’ll definitely not.” Just in case, Li Xiaonian said in advance, “Cousin, if I can prove my ability, you can’t go back on the deal.”
His words aroused Luo Wen’s interest. “Okay, keep going.”
Li Xiaonian licked his lips. “If I’m not wrong, the coffee I drank just now was the famous Santa Ynez, produced in Brazil. Obviously, Star Moon Bay Cafe won’t provide such precious coffee, so it must have been brought by you.”
Luo Wen was slightly surprised and looked at Ling Baifei.
Ling Baifei hurriedly waved his hand. “I didn’t tell him anything about you, and all coffee is bitter to me. I certainly don’t know the name of the coffee.”
Luo Wen nodded. “You guessed right, but what are you trying to express?”
“What I’m trying to express is that I am very capable. Although I seem ordinary, I am knowledgeable, and I can definitely earn the money for a villa by virtue of my own ability. To be honest, yesterday was the first day I played “Star Wind”, but I made 8,000 gold coins in a single day. You might think that’s too little money, but it’s a good start, isn’t it? As long as you give me enough time, let alone tens of millions yuan, I believe I can earn billions or even tens of billions.”
“…” Ling Baifei gaped in shock, utterly speechless.
However, Luo Wen just sneered. “Just because you figured out the variety of this coffee doesn’t mean you can work miracles. Don’t you think you are ridiculous? If it’s so easy to make money, this country must have already been full of billionaires.”
Li Xiaonian didn’t mind her taunt and continued, “Of course I know you won’t believe me so easily, or will even treat me as a lunatic, but I’m not only good at tasting coffee, but also good at something else. I’m a good judge of character. Although you were born in a rich family, if I’m not mistaken, you should be a police officer.” With that, Li Xiaonian flattered her without a trace. “Although you were born with a silver spoon, you still devote yourself to such a noble and dangerous job. It can be seen that you’re a chivalrous woman with justice in your heart.
Luo Wen’s eyes narrowed slightly. “My identity is easy to find. You can find it by searching the Internet. What you said doesn’t count.”
Li Xiaonian nodded. “You look like a sunny girl, but I can be sure that you’ve never been in a relationship.”
Hardly had he said so when Ling Baifei coughed hurriedly, winking at him anxiously. No, no, you’re wrong.Read latest Chapters at wuxiamobile.com Only
Li Xiaonian ignored Ling Baifei’s eyes. “Cousin, am I right?”
Although Luo Wen was surprised, she didn’t reveal her emotion but just looked at Ling Baifei. “Ask Xiaobai whether you’re right.”
Ling Baifei explained helplessly, “She has got a boyfriend, and she even took her boyfriend home to meet her parents two months ago.”
Li Xiaonian shook his head and said with certainty. “Impossible, I’m never wrong. She’s definitely never been in love, not even once.”
