Lady Gu Is Too Weak To Fend For Herself - Chapter 577
Chapter 577 She Actually Came To Li City!
“Not only is this emerald ring expensive, but it’s also a birthday gift from Old Madam Yin to Anran. How could she have the heart to steal such a thing? It’s a gift to the eldest daughter of the Xu family. Is she worthy of possessing it?”
Everyone mocked loudly. The shop assistants also came over curiously.
Xu Anran’s lips trembled. “Xi Xi, why did you… do such a thing? Forget it, I won’t tell Mom and Dad, nor will I let everyone know.
“I can give you other things, but this is Grandma’s birthday gift to me. It means a lot to me. If you like it, I can get Grandma to give you one. However… don’t do such things anymore.
“You’re the daughter of the Xu family. Your words and actions represent the Xu family.”
Xu Anran’s eyes were filled with disappointment as she sighed helplessly. “Everyone, I’m sorry to have made you anxious. Please forget about this.”
Qiao Xi was angered to the point of laughing. On the surface, Xu Anran was trying to clear her name, but it had unknowingly confirmed her crime. She even told everyone not to spread the news. In reality, it was a display of her fake generosity. “Miss Xu, you’re so kind.”
“Old Madam Yin is a decisive person. If she finds out that her birthday gift to her granddaughter was stolen, she’ll definitely investigate it thoroughly.”
“Tsk tsk, that’s the Yin family! They’re a wealthy family, after all.”
Xu Anran lowered her eyes and smiled proudly.
So what if Qiao Xi married Gu Zheng? Her reputation would be ruined anyway. Perhaps after today, Gu Zheng would hate her and abandon her.
How could the Xu family tolerate a woman who lost Gu Zheng and had a ruined reputation?
Xu Anran comforted her gently. “Xi Xi, don’t worry. I’ve already told them not to spread the news. When I see Grandma, I’ll get her to give you a similar gift, alright?”
Gu Zheng’s phone vibrated.
The man smirked. It seemed that she had arrived.
At this moment, Wen Xi and Xu Anran were echoing each other’s words. One was criticizing loudly, while the other was pretending to be tolerant.
“Cousin, why are you so polite to her?! She clearly knows that this is Old Madam Yin’s birthday gift to you, yet she still stole it in public. She’s just jealous of you and wanted to see you frantic after you lost the ring!
“Qiao Xi, you’re just an adopted daughter. You have to know your identity. What right do you have to snatch things from the eldest daughter of the Xu family? It’s already your honor that you’re allowed to stay in the Xu family. Don’t be ungrateful!”
Xu Anran said gently, “Xi’er, don’t fool around. Xi Xi grew up in the countryside. There are many things that no one taught her. It’s expected that she doesn’t know the rules. She’ll understand in the future.
“Xi Xi, you have to be polite when you see Grandma. She’s a very good person and is very friendly to the younger generation. If you want to meet her, I can bring you over. As long as you ask for a gift, she definitely won’t refuse.”
The corners of Xu Anran’s mouth curled up proudly. At this moment, Qiao Xi should be very aggrieved. She clearly did not steal anything, yet she still had to be criticized by everyone. Qiao Xi wanted to meet her grandmother, yet she had to be introduced by Xu Anran. Qiao Xi was such a failure as a ‘true daughter’!
“Eldest Miss Xu!”
Suddenly, a cold and dignified female voice came from the door.
At some point in time, Song Shiyu had run to the door and pushed it open. More than ten bodyguards rushed in and stood in two rows in an orderly manner. They opened up a wide path.
An elegant old madam in gorgeous clothes walked in with a cane in her hand. The pressure she exuded made everyone present tremble.
The old madam’s sharp gaze landed on Xu Anran as she slammed her walking cane on the floor.
Xu Anran’s body trembled as her face turned pale.
She… She was actually in Li City?
They originally thought that Old Madam Yin didn’t actually mean it when she said that she was coming. They never expected that she would really come. Her relationship with the Xu family was clearly not good, so why did she still come? Could it be… Could it be because of Qiao Xi?
“Xu Anran, you don’t even dare to say anything when you see me?”
The entire venue was silent. Xu Anran’s body was stiff, and she felt that her heart was about to stop.
Everyone asked in confusion, “Who is it? Why is Anran so afraid?”
Wen Xi looked at the old madam in front of her and found her a little familiar, but she could not remember where she had seen her before.
