But the rich people invited to the party, the ex husband’s friends, are there just to show off their wealth not to give sincere blessing to the two people who decided to separate themselves. They don’t care about Xiao Qing’s feelings.
Later, at the divorce party an auction was organized. They are selling everything that the couple had. The ex grooms presents to Xiao Qing are sold really well, but only thing that comes from Xiao Qing’s side it’s the brooch that her mother gave her on the wedding day and no one wants it. It’s not significant for the rich snobs from that party. Hearing Xiao Tong and Xiao Qing talking, Jia Wei buys that brooch from double the staring price.
