It was a large-scale shopping mall that had just opened, and its door was decorated with many banners and posters celebrating its opening.
On one of the posters, several prominent words were written –”Purchase over 100 yuan for a chance at the prize draw!”
At the prize draw corner by the door, numerous prizes were displayed.
There were all kinds of home appliances, but the most attractive prize among them all was a brand-new car.
In this day and age, when new stores open, they would use various methods and models to attract customers.
Since this mall was very large and new, there were already a lot of customers. Coupled with the attraction by such prizes, more and more people gathered.
The Grand Prize was this car, and many people had come for it.
But, how could it be so easy to draw a car that was worth more than 200,000 yuan?
Many gifts placed around the car were given away, but the car remained there, and its presence continued to attract more customers.
Within the big transparent prize draw box, there were numerous white balls.
Opening these white balls would reveal the result of the draw.
Whenever someone was drawing the prize, many people would stare at the person while holding their breaths, as if they were the one drawing the lot.
And when the prize drawn was announced, everyone would become even more nervous. They were expecting a big prize to be drawn, yet they were also afraid that a big prize would be taken away by others.
Wave after wave of people came with hope, only to leave in disappointment.
“What are you going to buy?” Song Jiaren asked.
“I’m just buying something to enter the prize draw,” Xia Xibei explained casually, continuing to walk forward.
“Prize draw?” Song Jiaren became even more puzzled. Why had Xia Xibei suddenly become interested in the prize draw?
However, she didn’t ask too many questions, following Xia Xibei into the mall instead.
Indeed, there were lots of things in this mall, covering a whole range of categories.
Song Jiaren was pushing a cart while following behind Xia Xibei, watching her throw one item after another into the cart.
“I also have these things at home, I will bring them to you next time,” Song Jiaren said.
“It’s alright, I need to use them anyway,” Xia Xibei replied casually. Soon, she gathered everything she wanted and headed to the checkout.
There were many people queuing at the checkout counters, waiting for nearly half an hour before it was their turn.
The items that Xia Xibei bought amounted to over 100 yuan, and with her receipt, she could participate in the prize draw.
Song Jiaren followed Xia Xibe to the prize draw corner.
The prize-drawing process was a little slow, so by the time it was Xia Xibei’s turn, another half an hour had already passed.
Among the people queuing before them, the biggest prize that had been drawn was a TV.
Although it was not the car, it was also a huge surprise.
Watching the staff move the TV out, everyone was envious.
Xia Xibei did not care about others; business. After handing her receipt to the staff, she directly put her hand into the prize draw box.
Everyone could see that she fiddled around in the box for a while before taking a ball out.
“Open it up! There must be a big prize in it!” Song Jiaren leaned over excitedly.
In her entire life, she had never won a single prize before, even if it was the most common one, such as “one more bottle.”
Therefore, she was very envious of lucky people.
Xia Xibei smiled, “How do you know that there is a big prize in it?”
“You are definitely able to win the jackpot!”
Song Jiaren appeared extremely confident.
Xia Xibei laughed, “Then let’s win the big prize.”
After she finished speaking, she used a little bit of force to open the white ball.
Within it was a folded piece of paper.
She unfolded the paper.
After reading the words written on top, Song Jiaren was dumbstruck for a moment, then her pupils shrank and she suddenly gasped.
She exclaimed, her voice cracking because she was too excited, “Grand Prize – Car?!”
