Chapter 326: Acting High Maintenance
Yun Yuanfeng had a morning meeting and left for work early right after breakfast.
As soon as hed left, her second uncle and second aunt came over.
As soon as Yao Ying came in, she wished Yun Xi a happy birthday in front of Liang Xiuqin and handed her a gift.
“Thank you, second aunt!” Yun Xi took the gift bag from her second aunt.
The name of a snow boot brand printed on the bag was a very famous brand.
Yun Xi vaguely remembered hearing that in this era, snow boots were something that were getting popular to wear during the autumn and the winter.
They were good protection against the cold, and, most important, they were extremely expensive.
Many celebrities were wearing them, and they had become a luxury item among the upper class.
Because of their popularity, it was difficult to buy them in China.
In the era before she had died, this make of boots had flooded the market.
In this era, a pair of these boots cost more than 3,000 yuan, and they usually needed to be specially ordered because they were never available.
She definitely hadnt expected her second aunt to give her a pair!
When Yun Ziling saw the logo on the gift bag, she was immediately green-eyed with jealousy.
Seeing Yun Xi taking out the boots from their box, boots that she had dreamed of wearing, Yun Ziling clenched her hands and gritted her teeth with envy.
Those were exactly the boots she had been dying to buy for a long time now.
Even if her mother had been willing to spend 3,000 yuan, she would have to wait until next year!
And then it would be warm next year, so who would wear these boots
But her second aunt had not only bought them, but shed also given them to that country bumpkin Yun Xi!
No matter how good the boots were, theyll never look good on her.
“Second aunt, I never saw you give me any gifts on my birthday.
Arent you being too biased”
Yao Ying glanced at Yun Ziling and chuckled lightly, “I like to be biased! The weather is so cold, so Yun Xi should dress up warmly to go to school today.”
“Okay, I will.
Thank you, second aunt! I had wanted a pair of warm boots.”
Yun Xi didnt look at Yun Zilings expression, as she sat on the sofa to put on her new boots.
“Sister, Muyang Town is much colder than Jingdu.
You could withstand the cold when you lived in the countryside.
Now youve gotten much more high maintenance ever since you returned to Jingdu.”
“No one in the countryside treated me nicely, so why would I act high maintenance in front of them.”
Yun Xi raised her head, then stood up, and stomped the comfortable, warm boots on her feet.
“The size is just right, thank you, second aunt!”
“Thats good!” Yao Ying smiled with satisfaction.
“People rely on clothes like horses rely on saddles.
I knew these boots would look good on you.”
Yun Ziling snorted with envy.
“Sister, you are used to being in the countryside, so how can you adapt to wearing such good shoes”
Yao Ying glanced at Liang Xiuqin, who had come out of the kitchen.
“Why shouldnt she wear them Yun Xi is the eldest daughter of the Yun family, so she should enjoy good things Yun Ziling, if you are so envious of her, ask your mother to buy some for you.
Why complain about it here”
“Isnt it just a pair of shoes Whats so great about them Do you really think I cant afford them”
As soon as Liang Xiuqin came out, she heard Yao Ying criticize her daughter, so she fired back.
Yao Ying looked at her with an expression that showed she doubted if she could afford it.
“Look at how envious your daughter is.
Since she likes them so much, you should buy them for her!”
Shed also bought it from someone abroad because she couldnt order it in China!
Liang Xiuqin didnt know how expensive the shoes were and didnt know how to order them.
In front of Yao Ying, she was just bluffing because of her pride.
“Ziling, Mom will take you to buy some tomorrow! Stuck-up b*tch!”
Her mother said it as if the task were a piece of cake, but Yun Ziling was unhappy.
Moreover, the snow was heavy today, and she didnt know how cold it was outside!
From the bottom of her heart, she didnt want to see such precious shoes worn on the feet of Yun Xi, a country bumpkin.
It was snowing, and she was also cold!
Why could she wear such good things when she had just returned from the countryside, while she had to suffer from the cold
“Mom! You cant buy these shoes at all in China, okay They are scheduled to be released next year.
A single pair costs more than 3,000 yuan.
Did you think they were cheap”
After Yun Ziling called her bluff like this, Liang Xiuqin was stunned, as if she hadnt expected a pair of shoes to be so expensive!
She also hadnt expected that Yao Ying was willing to buy such an expensive thing for this wretched girl, and her face immediately turned ugly!
“Mom, since my sister and I only have one size difference in shoe size anyway, I can wear them with thick socks, so make her give the shoes to me.
Its snowing so heavily today that my feet are going to freeze.
Sister is used to the rough life in the countryside, so shes more resistant to the cold.
She can bear it even if she wears normal shoes.”
