Lady Gu Is Too Weak To Fend For Herself - Chapter 581
Chapter 581 Who Is The Real Thief?
Xu Anran was in a daze as she lowered her eyes. If she did not push the blame on Qiao Xi, then she would be the unlucky one. She would implicate the entire Xu family and make her parents sad.
She bit her lip and said aggrievedly, “You only gave me a birthday gift but not Xi Xi. She got jealous of me, so—”
“I gave you a birthday gift?”
Old Madam Yin retorted with eyes filled with mockery, “Are you so sure that the birthday gift is for you?”
Xu Anran widened her eyes.
“When I sent someone over, I said that this set of jewelry is for Eldest Miss Xu!”
Old Madam Yin’s voice suddenly became sharp. “Xu Anran, don’t you know who the eldest daughter of the Xu family is? Who gave you the confidence to think that you’re the eldest daughter of the Xu family?!”
Xu Anran’s body trembled!
The entire venue was in an uproar.
What did Old Madam Yin mean? Xu Anran was not the eldest daughter of the Xu family. Could it be Qiao Xi?
Under everyone’s puzzled gazes, Old Madam Yin slowly walked in front of Xu Anran and sneered.
“I’ve lived for so many years. Don’t use your little tricks on me. Don’t think that I won’t do anything to you just because Xia Yunlou and Xu Zhi are protecting you?!”
“Grandma!” Xu Anran shouted in horror, her eyes filled with pleading. Then, she lowered her voice. “Please save me some dignity in front of so many people.”
“Dignity? If you really cared about your dignity, you wouldn’t have framed Xi Xi. Why didn’t you think about whether Xi Xi would still have any dignity left if you managed to successfully frame her for stealing something?!”
Xu Anran said softly, “Grandma, we shouldn’t air our dirty laundry in public. It’s better not to let outsiders know about this. You can ignore me, but what about the Xu family? What about the Yin family?”
Old Madam Yin never thought that Xu Anran was incompetent just because she was swapped at birth. What she disliked most about Xu Anran was that she pretended to be something she was not even when she knew the truth. In Old Madam Yin’s eyes, that was the greatest manifestation of her incompetence.
“Xu Anran, you know very well who the birthday gift is for. Xi Xi won’t be jealous of you at all because with your identity, you’re not worthy!”
Xu Anran’s face was ferocious, and her sharp nails pierced through her palms.
Old Madam Yin stared at Xu Anran with a sharp gaze and said word by word, “I did send someone to deliver this set of jewelry to the Xu family, but I said it was for Xi Xi. You used the jewelry to frame Xi Xi for stealing and even said that she’s jealous of you. Xu Anran, why don’t you tell me who the real thief is?”
These words were like a thunderclap that exploded in everyone’s hearts. At the same time, it completely destroyed Xu Anran’s pure and kind image.
Everyone was extremely shocked as they digested Old Madam Yin’s words in a daze.
The Yin family was a noble family with a strict upbringing. Moreover, Old Madam Yin had no reason to lie. This set of jewelry was for whoever she said it was for.
On the other hand, Xu Anran was wearing someone else’s jewelry to show off. She even used the jewelry to wrongly accuse the owner?
Old Madam Yin sneered. “Xu Anran, you should know that our two families have not been in contact for so many years. I’ve never given you a birthday gift. The jewelry set I sent over this time is for Xi Xi. You clearly knew that, yet you still took the jewelry for yourself. You didn’t tell Xi Xi about this at all.
“If you knew your place, I wouldn’t make things difficult for you. However, you’re bullying Xi Xi with your fake identity. Although I’ve been in Shengdu, I know about everything you’ve done.”
Xu Anran’s body stiffened as she trembled uncontrollably.
Suddenly, someone asked in confusion, “Old Madam Yin said that this set of jewelry is for Eldest Miss Xu, and she also said that it’s for Qiao Xi. Does this mean that Eldest Miss Xu is Qiao Xi? But shouldn’t Eldest Miss Xu be Xu Anran?”
“Now that you mention it, I think it’s strange as well. Why did the Xu family suddenly adopt a 20-year-old daughter? Logically speaking, even if they wanted to adopt a child, they would’ve adopted a kid. Qiao Xi already has a family of her own, so why did the Xu family adopt her? Moreover, Old Madam Yin and the two young masters of the Yin family seem to be even closer to Qiao Xi than the legitimate daughter, Xu Anran. Why is that?”
“Could it be that… Qiao Xi is the biological daughter of the Xu couple?”
Hearing the last guess, Xu Anran’s face turned pale as if she would faint in the next second.
She was the real daughter of the Xu family! Qiao Xi was just an adopted daughter!
