Soon, President Pei and Jacob, each in their own cars, returned to the Calligraphy and Painting a*sociation back and forth.
At this time, Phoebe had been waiting here for a long time.
As soon as Chairman Pei returned, the secretary brought him and Jacob to the meeting room and said to the waiting Phoebe, “Miss Zhan, these two are our Chairman Pei of the Calligraphy and Painting a*sociation, as well as Vice Chairman Wilson!”
After saying that, she then introduced the two men, “President Pei, Vice President Wilson, this is the French-Chinese I spoke of on the phone, Feier Zhan, Miss Zhan.”
Phoebe did not use her real identity to be on the safe side.
But for her, she had completely legal and real identities in several countries, and this French-Chinese, Zhan Feier’s identity was just one of her many identities.
Phoebe gave Jacob one more look and was finally relieved in her heart that as long as she got in touch with him, she would definitely have a chance to inquire about his son-in-law Charlie wade.
So, she stood up very politely and said with a smile, “Two presidents, I have heard a lot about you and finally met you both.”
President Pei did not expect that the overseas Chinese was a beautiful young girl, and after a slight dismay, he hurriedly smiled and said, “Miss Zhan is really very polite, I heard that an overseas Chinese wanted to donate calligraphy and paintings, but I did not expect it to be for a young lady, was Miss Zhan from Aurous Hill before?”
Phoebe smiled faintly and shook her head, “Our family’s ancestors were from Aurous Hill, and although several generations have settled overseas recently, the old people in the family still have very deep feelings for Aurous Hill, it’s just that the old people are too old to come over too easily, so they entrusted me to do my bit for the painting and calligraphy community in Aurous Hill.”
As she said this, she greeted Rukky Shan at her side, “Shan Shan, quickly bring over the calligraphy and paintings prepared by the old man.”
Rukky shan hurriedly stepped forward and brought over a wooden box made of golden silk nan wood, which was opened on the conference table, and inside were eight scrolls of paintings.
These eight scrolls were bought by Flynn’s family from a collector in America last night and then sent to Aurous Hill overnight.
In order to match the background of the story made up by Phoebe, so that they could take the opportunity to hook up with Jacob.
However, both President Pei and Jacob did not know that Phoebe had put up such a big show in order to find an opportunity to get close to the son-in-law of Jacob’s family, Charlie wade.
Afterwards, Phoebe made an inviting gesture to President Pei and Jacob and said respectfully, “Two Presidents, these eight pieces of characters are the eight pieces of Roy Pic’s works that the old man at home asked me to bring back, so please take a look at them.”
President Pei was naturally very excited and hastily took out a pair of white gloves from his pocket, went forward and carefully picked up one of the characters and gently spread it out on the table, while looking at it, he praised, “These are indeed Roy Pic’s authentic works, and judging from the handwriting, they were left behind during Roy Pic’s golden age at its peak, very well preserved and very precious!”
Phoebe nodded and said with a smile, “These eight pieces of Roy Pic’s work are a series of eight essays written by Roy Pic, praising the four seasons and the four directions of Aurous Hill, and all eight pieces are perfectly preserved, which is very rare indeed!”
President Pei said with excitement, “These eight characters are called the Eight Sighs of Aurous Hill! They are of great significance to the history of Aurous Hill and its customs and people! When I first came across calligraphy, I had heard of these eight characters, but I had only heard that they had gone overseas, but I never thought that I would be lucky enough to see them in Aurous Hill today!”
With that, he said to Jacob, “Jacob, come and take a look! This is arguably the most famous of our local calligraphers in Aurous Hill, and these eight pieces of calligraphy are also the most representative of our cultural history in Aurous Hill! Look at the strength of the strokes, and the subtleties are rounded and full of rhythm, simply marvellous!”
Jacob could not understand any calligraphy, he only knew that it looked quite neat, but it was still too early to say that he could understand the essence of it.
