Chapter 101: A Trap Set by an Amateur
Translator: Nyoi-Bo Studio Editor: Nyoi-Bo Studio
Why couldnt her mother understand that they were getting a great bargain.
It was only 1,000 yuan.
That amount wouldnt be enough to buy only the custom-made gift box from Ling Jing, not to mention the dress.
Yun Xi was stupid.
She didnt know what it meant in Jingdu to get a gown designed by Ling Jing.
She was so easy to push around and could be taken care of with 1,000 yuan, so who wouldnt be happy
“Okay, Ill give you the money.” Liang Xiuqin took out 1,500 yuan and gave it to Yun Xi with disdain on her face.
Yao Ying was dismayed on seeing Yun Xi willing to compromise for such a meager amount of money.
This little girl probably didnt know that all the women in Jingdu dreamed about getting their hands on one of Ling Jings designs, and she had given it to that idiot Yun Ziling.
What a pushover, no wonder she was always being so relentlessly bullied by that mother and daughter!
Yun Ziling couldnt wait to go upstairs to change her clothes.
She appeared impatient and as if she was afraid that Yun Xi would change her mind and snatch it back.
Caution flashed through her greedy eyes.
Yun Xi snickered derisively to herself, and followed her aunt into the kitchen to prepare lunch.
“How could you be so stupid That gown cost hundreds of thousands, yet you just gave it to Yun Ziling.
That was someones gift to you.
How dare she snatch it from you”
How could she not know what type of person Liang Xiuqin was.
In her eyes, Yun Ziling was her only daughter, and her other two daughters were even more negligible than servants.
“Second Aunt, believe me, if something truly was mine, something I really cared about, I wouldnt relent.
When I do relent, of course I expect double in compensation.”
Yao Ying stared at her quizzically, but from the calm and impassive expression on her face, she didnt appear to be joking.
“What are you going to do”
Only then did Yao Ying start to take this little girl seriously.
Although she usually appeared placid, as soon as shed come back, a lot of trouble had arisen at home.
Liang Xiuqin was constantly scheming and had tried every lame gimmick to use her as a scapegoat, but shed failed to gain any advantage over her.
“Second Aunt, dont worry, there is going to be a good show to watch tonight.”
Yun Xi smiled and started busying herself helping the maid prepare lunch.
Seeing that she didnt want to say more, Yao Ying didnt ask any more questions.
She would be more than happy to see Liang Xiuqin suffer shame and embarrassment.
After lunch, Liang Xiuqin took Liang Xinyi and Yun Ziling out to do their hair and makeup.
They racked their brains on how to get as glamorous as possible to attend the evening charity dinner.
The old man rested upstairs, and Yao Ying returned to her own villa outside their villa complex.
Yun Xi had nothing to do and was reading in her room to prepare for the next weeks school test.
The maid knocked on her door and asked her to go downstairs to answer the phone.
After picking up the phone, she hadnt even had the chance to speak when the person on the other end started talking.
Hows the gown Have you tried it on”
After hearing his voice, Yun Xi froze for a moment, then snapped back to reality.
“Uh…Young Marshal Mu, it was you”
She hadnt expected that he had been the one whod sent her the gown.
“If it wasnt me, who did you think it was from Chen Yichen”
“No, its just that I cant accept such an exorbitant gift from Young Marshal Mu without deserving it.”
“You deserve it.
Just dont cheat on me!”
“…” The abrupt change in topic rendered her at a loss for words.
“Does Young Marshal Mu have some matter to discuss with me”
“I wanted to tell you that your mother bribed a staff member from the auction tonight and asked him to steal the Longyun Jade Seal from the auction.”
“Huh” Yun Xi froze for a moment, then reacted quickly.
“How do you know”
“All the staff members working at the auction are my people.
Your mother bribed him, and he reported this to me as soon as possible.”
“It seems that my mother doesnt have the skills to set a trap, so I cant compliment her even if I wanted to.”
Shed already had a few guesses on how her mother had planned on scheming against her, but she didnt expect her to be such an amateur.
“Indeed it was to scheme against you, so what are you going to do about it”
