Lady Gu Is Too Weak To Fend For Herself - Chapter 659
Chapter 659: The Family In The Northern Region
The netizens were all indignant. Even if Xia Yunlou was in the wrong, she had admitted her mistake and even publicly apologized. However, Qiao Xi clearly knew that she was in the wrong, yet she hid and did not say anything. Did she think that she could pocket that inheritance without returning it?
What was even more infuriating was that Xia Yunqiu had given up her life for Qiao Xi’s sake. However, Qiao Xi actually disregarded the wish of her adoptive mother, and her mind was filled with money. She was simply too much!
Gu Zheng naturally saw this news as well. His eyes were filled with anger, and his voice was cold. “Where’s Young Madam?”
Song Shijing said, “I think she’s sorting out Madam Xia Yunqiu’s inheritance.”
Gu Zheng’s gaze darkened. “Why is she sorting those things? Could it be that she really wants to return them to the Xu family? This stupid woman is crazy!”
Song Shijing: “??” Stupid woman? The president called Young Madam a stupid woman? The crazy wife-loving man who used to dote on her said that she was stupid? Even he knew that Young Madam had her reasons for doing things. Even if she returned the items, it would definitely deal the Xu family a heavy blow. Didn’t the president know that?
Then, Gu Zheng slowly said, “Your president…”
He paused for a moment and changed the topic. “How did she handle all these things in the past? Did she solve all her problems alone? Did she never ask me for help?”
Song Shijing looked at him in confusion. He remembered their private conversation. Song Shiyu said—
‘Don’t you think the president has been acting strange recently?
‘Yesterday, the president actually said that Young Madam was weak. Has his brain been damaged?’
Song Shijing smiled meaningfully. “President, don’t worry!”
Xu Anran was an A-list celebrity, so she was very popular. Moreover, the news of two babies being mistakenly swapped at birth had spread wide. The netizens were very concerned about this matter. To them, it was understandable that the biological daughter was unwilling to go home. After all, she and the Xu family did not have any feelings for each other, but Xia Yunqiu had raised Qiao Xi. The two should have a bond with each other. For the sake of pocketing that priceless inheritance, the daughter was unwilling to fulfill her adoptive mother’s last wish. This was a problem with her character.
Xu Anran looked at the comments online with a proud expression. She originally thought that Qiao Xi was very powerful, but now, she must be so afraid and that was why she did not dare to say anything. It had already been so long, yet she hadn’t given a response.
As Qiao Xi had not responded, Xia Yunlou was getting more confident. She believed that she would definitely be able to make Qiao Xi hand over the inheritance obediently this time.
After a week had passed, Qiao Xi still did not respond. She had already counted the things her mother left behind. These things were indeed expensive. Even if all the Xu family’s assets were added together, they would not be able to compare to them.
Although the Xia family was a noble family, it did not make sense for a daughter to take away so much gold, silver, and jewelry. Moreover, with so many valuable things taken away, the Xia family would definitely have suffered a serious loss. However, there was no news of the Xia family losing their assets in recent years.
Could it be that these things belonged to the Yin family?
It shouldn’t be because Old Madam Yin always carried a priceless blood jade with her. It was the Yin family’s heirloom, but her mother’s inheritance had two pieces of blood jade of better quality. Other than the jade pieces, there were also all kinds of antiques and paintings.
Qiao Xi found someone to appraise it. The goods her mother had left behind were all real. Moreover, any one of these things was worth millions. It was even to the extent that some of them were too expensive and difficult to estimate.
Where did all these things come from?
They were not from the Xia family nor the Yin family. No matter how successful her mother’s business was, it was impossible for her to accumulate such a shocking amount of wealth in a short period of time. Moreover, these antiques, paintings, jewelry, and gold were difficult to buy even if one had money. They required absolute power and status.
Her mother was only 26 years old when she died. She did have a business mind and managed to earn a lot of money, but it was impossible for her to own such wealth alone.
Her phone suddenly rang. Qin An called. “Little Six, I got someone to look at those things. Do you know where Aunt Yunqiu’s inheritance came from?”
Qiao Xi replied, “I don’t.”
Qin An’s voice was serious. “The treasures in the inheritance are all priceless. Any one of them is enough to make people envious. One of them…”
He paused as if he wanted to digest this news as well. “30 years ago, my father met that family in the northern region. Although he had only seen it once, he still has a deep impression of that treasure.”
The family in the northern region…
