Translator: Henyee Translations Editor: Henyee Translations
The next day, a guest came to Longwan Residential. Yin Jinglin rushed over from Shengdu and specially brought over an imperial green jade bracelet. He brought it to Qiao Xi and explained, “This is a jade bracelet worn by the direct descendants of the Yin family. My father and your mother both have it. My father’s jade bracelet was passed down to my third brother. Of course, Aunt’s jade bracelet is for you.”
Yin Jinglin’s third brother was Yin Jingting, Yin Yunyi’s son. He was also the third young master of the Yin family. The aunt he was talking about was Xia Yunqiu.
If this had belonged to her mother, Qiao Xi naturally had no reason to refuse. She carefully sized up the jade bracelet. There was a special pattern engraved on it.
Among the three Yin siblings, only her uncle, Yin Yunyi, and her mother had bracelets. It seemed that Xia Yunlou did not. The other bracelet was in Yin Jingting’s hands, which meant that the Yin family had chosen her and Yin Jingting as candidates to be the heir.
Then, Yin Jinglin handed her a transfer of assets. It was already stamped with Yin Yunyi’s seal. “Cousin, the Yin family has been developing in Shengdu since ancient times and is deeply rooted there. Grandma hopes that you can return to Shengdu to manage things, but she won’t force you. Since you’ve already settled down in Li City, the Yin family’s branch in Li City will be handed to you to manage. Third Brother is in charge of Shengdu. You and Third Brother are both the heirs of the Yin family. You’ll naturally be able to have whatever he has.
“These things were originally supposed to be handed to Aunt. Unfortunately, she’s no longer alive. You should inherit them. Also, if the Xia family comes looking for you, ignore them. They definitely won’t have good intentions.”
Yin Jinglin thought of the Xia family and could not suppress the anger in his heart. “Old Master Xia is heartless. Back then, he abandoned Grandma and got married to a mistress. Now, he still has the cheek to ask us to call him ‘Grandpa’ and even goes around saying that my father is unfilial. He has never done his duty as a father. Why should my father be filial to him?
“Ever since Grandma brought my father back to the Yin family and my father changed his surname to Yin, we have already cut off all contact with the Xia family. We look down on scum like Old Master Xia who goes back on his word. He even has the cheek to interfere in Third Brother’s marriage, saying that he’s our grandfather. He says that Third Brother is his grandson, so he should be the one deciding on his marriage! Pfft! How shameless!”
Hearing Yin Jinglin’s complaints, she knew how much the Yin family hated the Xia family. Qiao Xi could not help but nod. She had seen the Xia family before. Xia Mengyan was an example. To be able to raise a daughter like her, the Xia family was probably not a good family.
The old master of the Xia family, Xia Cheng, had cut off all ties with his first wife for so many years. Now, he was interfering in Yin Jingting’s marriage. He had probably taken a liking to Yin Jingting’s position as the Yin family’s heir and wanted to get closer to this grandson of his.
At this point, Yin Jinglin was even angrier. He took a few deep breaths before calming down. “But my third brother isn’t someone who can be manipulated by the Xia family!”
The Yin family was a century-old family with many connections. They naturally had their reasons for choosing Yin Jingting as the next head of the family. This cousin of theirs was definitely not a pushover.
“Xi Xi, when can you come back to Shengdu with me? I really want to bring you to meet my friends and tell them that I have a younger sister! Otherwise, they’ll always mock our Yin family for not having girls!”
After Yin Jinglin left, Qiao Xi received a call. The president of Liuli, Lu Zhi, was looking for her to discuss the fashion design plan. Qiao Xi brought the design drafts and asked him to meet her at a Western restaurant.
Lu Zhi and Qiao Xi had known each other for seven years. Lu Zhi was the mysterious president of Liuli. He had always been the chief designer of Liuli Corporation, so Qiao Xi did not understand why Lu Zhi suddenly returned to the country.
Qiao Xi had just arrived at the Western restaurant and sat down when Lu Zhi teased, “It’s rare to get you to treat me to a meal, yet you’re treating me to a meal in a restaurant under Gu Corporation. You’re really making full use of your family’s benefits.”
“When I meet a man, I have to do it where my husband can see us. Otherwise, he’ll be jealous,” Qiao Xi replied with a smile. She quickly signed the contract. Lu Zhi suddenly saw the jade bracelet on her wrist, and his eyes flashed.
Qiao Xi pointed at the jade bracelet. “You know about this bracelet?”
“Back then, the Yin family made a total of three imperial jade bracelets with the family’s emblem. Moreover, only the direct descendants of the Yin family are qualified to wear these bracelets. Almost all noble families know about this. So, what’s your relationship with the Yin family?” Lu Zhi raised his eyebrows and asked.
Qiao Xi and Lu Zhi had known each other for seven years. The two of them were considered good friends, so there was no need to hide it from him. Hence, she said frankly, “My mother is from the Yin family.”
