Lady Gu Is Too Weak To Fend For Herself - Chapter 575
Chapter 575 This Set Of Jewelry Is Supposed To Be Yours!
There was no need for Xu Anran to say anything before someone stood up for her. No one would think that she was targeting Qiao Xi.
As soon as she finished speaking, Wen Xi took out her bag and showed it to everyone. The few women also cooperated with the search, but they still could not find the ring.
“How is that possible? We don’t have it on us, nor do the shop assistants. Where could the ring be?”
“The ring wouldn’t have disappeared for no reason. Did it fall in a corner somewhere?”
“That’s not right. We’ve all gone through a body search, but there’s still someone who hasn’t done it yet!”
The gazes of everyone fell on Qiao Xi and Gu Zheng. The atmosphere instantly became awkward.
Xu Anran was silent for a moment and pretended to be angry. “How dare you?! Is this gentleman someone you can offend?”
She said respectfully, “Let me introduce you. This gentleman is President Gu Zheng of Gu Corporation and my sister’s husband. They have high net worths, so why would they steal my ring? Don’t spout nonsense here!”
Everyone was stunned for a few seconds, then they looked at Qiao Xi and Gu Zheng in shock.
Gu Zheng? Mrs. Gu?
This was the legendary god-like man, Gu Zheng? What was even more shocking was that Qiao Xi was actually his wife?
If that was the case, then it was indeed impossible for them to steal Xu Anran’s bracelet. Gu Zheng’s wealth was enough to rival that of a country. Not to mention a ring worth ten million, even if it was 100 million or one billion, he would not take a liking to it.
Just as everyone was about to apologize, Wen Xi suddenly snorted. “So what if she’s Mrs. Gu? Everyone knows that she was a country bumpkin before she married President Gu. No one educated her when she was young, so she developed a naughty and mischievous character. She may not steal for money but just because it has become a habit. Even if she’s Mrs. Gu now, she won’t be able to change her bad habits so soon!”
Gu Zheng frowned.
“Are you tired of living?!”
Qiao Xi was not angry but whispered to Gu Zheng, “Something’s wrong! Xu Anran knows that I’m Mrs. Gu. How could I have stolen her things? Why would she frame me in public? Isn’t she afraid that the truth will be exposed?”
Gu Zheng explained softly, “This doesn’t concern money. It’s because this ring was given to her by the old madam of the Yin family, who’s also Xia Yunlou’s mother and your grandmother.”
Qiao Xi remained silent and felt an indescribable feeling. When Xia Yunlou and Xu Zhi were mentioned, she did not feel close to them at all. However, when the old madam of the Yin family was mentioned, she inexplicably felt close to her. Perhaps this was the power of blood relations.
Gu Zheng said, “When the old madam of the Yin family and Mr. Xia got married, the entire Luo City was shaken. After the two of them divorced, the Yin family became very concerned about their two daughters.
“However, Xia Yunlou has always been relatively close to the Xia family and even got along very well with her father’s mistress. It made Old Madam Yin very sad, so she liked Madam Xia Yunqiu more.
“But in the end, Xia Yunlou is still the Old Madam’s biological daughter. Of course, she still dotes on her. Although she doesn’t interact with Xia Yunlou, she still ordered people to find you as soon as possible.”
Gu Zheng smirked. “Then why do you think the old madam, the daughter of the Yin family, gave such a valuable item to Xu Anran, her adopted granddaughter, and not you, her biological granddaughter?”
Qiao Xi’s heart trembled as a trace of doubt gradually arose in her heart.
Gu Zheng’s voice was hoarse. “Because… this set of jewelry is supposed to be yours. “Old Madam Yin doted on her daughter, Xia Yunqiu, the most. You grew up with her since you were young, so how could the child she raise be bad? Moreover, you’re related to Old Madam Yin by blood. Most importantly, Old Madam Yin has never liked Xu Anran. Even if she would give her a birthday gift to save some face, she wouldn’t give Xu Anran something expensive.
“Xu Anran laid her hands on this set of jewelry and is even accusing you of stealing. How interesting!”
At the same time, Xu Anran was still shocked. “Xi Xi won’t steal anything! You’re not allowed to suspect her!”
Qiao Xi was instantly speechless.
Everyone present had gotten their bodies searched except for her and Gu Zheng. Of course, no one dared to say that Gu Zheng stole anything, so she was the only one left.
If she insisted on not letting everyone search her body, the seeds of doubt would be planted in everyone’s hearts. Xu Anran insisted on protecting her, but it was like a bucket of dirty water was poured onto her.
