There was a sudden silence in the tea room.
Although Jenny didn’t know Master Guan well and spent a few hours with him briefly, he didn’t develop much fondness or affection for him.
But it wasn’t good news after all, and it was not a moment of sadness.
“Second Uncle Guan, please also feel sorry for me.”
Guan Ji Ming smiled.
“The company has a long history of developing new products and services for its customers, and it’s also a great place to start.
Just back then, Wanlet because of the child’s matter, has been in a trance, even later adopted snow faye, still did not let go of this heart disease, resulting in but thirty-something years old and ended up depressed.
The old man has been nagging at the matter, all these years busy with all kinds of home affairs, plus don’t know the child’s death, also didn’t care to find, now near the end, in the end, don’t want to leave his own regret, this is the thought to find the person back.
In fact, it’s not that important whether the child is real or not, in the end, as long as the old man thinks she’s real, it’s real, and everything else is in vain.”
After Guan Ji Ming finished speaking, the three of them fell silent again.
Jenny didn’t even know what to say for a moment.
Only now did she finally understand what Biden Lu meant when he said before that it might not be a good thing for that child to come back.
I’m afraid that no one in this family would want her back except the old man!
After all, seeing as the old man’s health was failing and his will was not made, one more child or grandchild was one more competition, even if the other was just a weak woman with no power or attachments.
The rich and powerful, sometimes in some ways, when it is really cold to the bone.
Jenny didn’t say anything else for a while, and Biden Lu saw that he had already gotten an answer, so there was nothing more to ask.
The two men got up and took their leave of Guan Ji Ming.
Guan Jiming got up to see them off, and when he reached the door, he looked at Jenny, somewhat wanting to stop talking.
Jenny knew what he wanted to say, and said quietly: “Don’t worry, as long as she doesn’t provoke me, I won’t say anything, just as if I didn’t know this person, the past enmity and grudges, as far as I’m concerned, has been in the past, the law should be ambushed, the things I have to take back have also been taken back, in the final analysis, she is calculating, in the end also did not get any benefit, I’m not so stubborn as to still stalking.It’s futile to chase after them.”
Guan Ji Ming heard her say that and let go.
“In that case, I’ll thank you here first.”
Jenny Jing nodded slightly and turned to leave with Biden Lu.
Back at Maple Bridge Cottage, it’s still early.
Neither of them had anything to eat at Guan’s, but when Aunt Liu saw them return, she specially cooked the little dumplings that Jenny especially loved and served them to them.
Jenny Jing and Biden Lu sat at the dining table, Jenny Jing eating a small dumpling while thinking about things.
Biden Lu looked at her and asked, “If you’re really uncomfortable, I’ll just bring you to the door to take out her old secrets, so there’s no need to eat here.”
Jenny was stunned and reacted, busy explaining, “Oh, no, I wasn’t thinking about her.”
Biden Lu raised his eyebrows.
“So what are you thinking about?”
Jenny Jing hesitated for a moment before saying, “I was thinking, I had always heard that Master Guan was very good to Guan Xuefei, but seeing it today doesn’t seem to be as good as the legends, do you think it’s because Clara is back, so even Guan Xuefei’s adopted daughter is not treated well?”
Deep’s face was a little darker.
“Thinking about this here for a while?”
Jenny nodded seriously.
“Heh!It’s none of your business whether she’s treated well or not.Why do you need to worry so much about her?”
Jenny didn’t know where he was suddenly getting his fire from and skimmed his lips in displeasure.
“People at least like you for so many years, or your ex-girlfriend, or maybe it’s your first love, and now that you’re in this situation, you don’t even care about it, that’s what I call heartless and cold-hearted, and you’re still talking about me.”
Biden Lu stalled.
Jenny wasn’t one to look up old scores, but every once in a while, he would always be unable to resist bringing out Guan Xuefei to ridicule him.
He put down his spoon, looked at Jenny and said seriously: “I repeat, I have never admitted that she is my girlfriend, it was just a joke from my parents when I was young and misunderstandings from the outside world.Her, understand?”
Jenny raised his eyebrows and smiled teasingly.
“Why are you so nervous?I’m just joking around and explaining a whole bunch of serious things.”
Biden Lu: “…….”
Jenny saw him darken his face, afraid that he would take it seriously, and even smiled to round things off.
“Ugh don’t be so sensitive, who doesn’t have an ex-girlfriend ex-boyfriend these days, I was in a relationship before I met you, it’s fine, I don’t mind.”
However, the words trailed off, only to darken the man’s face even more.
Just then, Aunt Liu came in with a smile and said, “Sir, Madam, Miss Hua is here.”
Jenny was stunned, a little surprised.
Looking at the time, it was ten o’clock at midnight.
Ever since she returned to Kyoto after giving birth, Nina has been living in a very modest house, and usually doesn’t go out so late at night except for parties.
Why is she here at this hour?
With a question, Jenny got up and went outside.
As soon as he reached the living room, he saw Nina Hua holding the baby, followed by his wife Zhao, the wife of the moon, walking in with a big bag of stuff.
“Distant.”She shouted and walked over, concerned, “What’s wrong?What’s going on here?”
Nina Hua smiled, “It’s fine, I’m coming over so late, I’m not disturbing you, right?”
Biden Lu walked out from behind Jenny Jing, his face flat, looked at her and said to Jenny Jing, “You guys talk, I’ll go back to the study first.”
Jenny knew that he wanted to leave the two good girlfriends alone, so he nodded his head and agreed.
After Biden Lu went upstairs, Jenny Jing Fang welcomed Nina Hua to sit down on the sofa, looked at the sleeping child in her arms and said, “It’s so late, it’s so cold outside, why did you carry him out?”
In the waning months of Kyoto, there was a thick layer of snow outside that was never meant to be borne by a small child.
Nina Hua sighed and said helplessly, “I can’t help it, I’m going to come over here sooner or later anyway, so it’s better for me to run over there myself rather than having Little Zhao send it over tomorrow morning, I’ll feel more at ease.”
Jenny was a little confused.
Nina Hua looked at her and said seriously, “Jenny, do me a favor, will you?”
Jenny nodded without even thinking about it, “It’s all right if you say, as long as I can do it.”
“Take care of Lele for me, I need to go back to Visterdem.”
Jenny Jing and Nina Hua had carefully analyzed the future before, and Nina Hua had naturally listened in.
Therefore, it was also known that he had to go back on this trip to Visterdem.
Only, she can go back, but the baby can’t run with her.
For one thing, because the child has only just recovered from a serious illness, and the month is too young to carry in case of any further physical discomfort.
Secondly, there is also the fear that after all, Hua Jingze has not yet loosened his lips to admit to letting the child in, and that an argument or friction will then occur and the child will suffer.
After listening to Nina Hua’s concerns, Jenny Jing was deeply impressed with her thoughts.
She nodded and said, “Yao Yao, don’t worry, I’ll take good care of Le Le, and in the meantime, don’t worry about going back to settle your affairs, I promise that when you return, not a hair of the child will be missing.”
Nina Hua smiled gratefully.
“I certainly believe that.”
She paused for a moment and finally gave the child a reluctant glance before handing him over to Dao, “It’s getting late, I have to go back, in the meantime, let Xiao Zhao stay here and help you take care of it together, she has been taking care of the child and knows Happy’s temperament and has experience.”
Jenny nodded in agreement and told Aunt Liu to take Zhao and the child down to settle down, which was followed by getting up to send her out.
“What time is the flight tomorrow?”
“Do you want me to give you a ride?”
Nina Hua hesitated and sighed.
“Let’s hope it goes well this time back, I’m actually tired after a year of cold war, but I’m not going to compromise on my kids, not asking my dad to forgive me, just hoping he’ll let go and let me go the rest of the way on my own.”
Jenny listened to her and also felt an unexpected heaviness in her heart.
But still, she gave her an encouraging hug.
“It’ll go well, I’m sure of it.”
After sending Nina Hua off, Jenny Jing returned to the room and specifically went to Aunt Liu’s side to check on her.
Aunt Liu had already brought Zhao and the child to the guest room and was making all the arrangements for them to stay.
The good news is that Ann comes over often, so there are plenty of things in the house that the kids can use.
Plus, the necessities Nina Hua had asked Xiao Zhao to bring them all over, so it didn’t seem rushed.
When everything was arranged, Jenny looked at the little gnome.
The little gnome sleeps well and shows no signs of wanting to wake up even now.
A little blob, lying in the cot, just like a cute little angel.
She couldn’t help but warm her heart and tucked him in, which was why she handed over, “Little Zhao, please watch it alone tonight, and tomorrow I’ll find another maid with experience in bringing up children to help you, so you can also take turns taking care of it.”
Little Zhao even smiled, “It’s okay, I’ve been taking care of Lele for such a long time, I’m used to it, it’s okay even if it’s just me.”
Jenny smiled and didn’t answer any more.
After making all the arrangements, she went upstairs to look for Biden Lu.
Biden Lu was in his study at this moment, and when he saw her come in, that’s when he asked, “Have the arrangements been made?”
Jenny Jing thought about it and said, “There are still two days until New Year’s Eve, I guess Yao Yao won’t be able to come back until after New Year’s Eve, around this time is more free, I want to take An An over to live with me, it’s also just right to be a companion with Le Le.”
Biden Lu had no comment on this proposal.
“Well, you just arrange it.”
The next day, Jenny went to the old house.
An An saw Kyung.
Jenny, naturally, was overjoyed.
Eyes lit up when they learned that there was a little brother waiting for them at home.
“Oh mommy, did you and daddy finally give me a baby brother?Wouldn’t that make me a sister from now on?”
Jenny Jing couldn’t help but laugh, scraping her little nose and saying angrily, “Don’t talk nonsense, that’s your Aunt Yao Yao’s child, but Mommy and Aunt Yao Yao are good friends, so it’s also your brother.”
It dawned on Ann.
“Mommy, when are you going to give me a real brother, then?”
Beside her, the old lady and the old man couldn’t help but watch as the old lady smiled, “If you just stop clamoring every day to go live with Mommy, Mommy and Daddy will be able to give you a brother soon.”
Ann pouted in displeasure at the news.
“It’s been a long time since I’ve lived with Mummy, isn’t that long enough?If that’s the case, then I don’t want it.”
She said, a little sulkily, turning her little face to the side and huffing.
Jenny Jing thought this child was adorable and smiled, “There are more than twenty days of winter holidays, this entire winter break, you can stay with mommy, oh, are you happy?”
Ann’s eyes lit up for a moment, then, suspiciously, she looked at her again.
“Really?You’re not lying to me?”
Facing the child’s suspicious eyes, Jenny suddenly stalled.
This child, with a rocky background, grew up without a mother, although Biden Lu loves her enough and is patient enough, but in the end, he is too busy, and usually accompanies her the most, just the old lady and the old man.
So, deep down, she was actually extremely insecure, I guess.
She sighed softly and squatted down, taking the child into her arms and whispering, “Really, when you’re feeling better, you’ll be with Mommy every day from now on, never to be apart again, okay?”
Ani was suddenly happy.
“Well, I knew mommy was the best.”
Next to her, the old lady looked at the scene and suddenly wet her eyes.
I have to say, Jenny is really good.
She used to think that Jenny would have a hard time accepting the child.
But now it seemed that she really did treat Ann as if she was already there, without any personal interest.
Thinking thus, the old lady said, “Jenny, come with me for a moment.”
I said, getting up and going upstairs.
Jenny got up and followed, though he was a little confused.
The old lady kept taking her to her room.
In the Lu family’s old house, one of the old maids who served the old lady was surnamed He, and everyone usually called her Mama He, who had followed the old lady since she was young and was very trusted by her.
At this time, she was just cleaning up the room for the old lady.
Seeing them come in, they even stopped their operations and smiled, “Old lady, madam, you are here.”
The old lady nodded and did not avoid her, directly ordering, “You go and help me bring that ancient sandalwood box in the drawer.”
He’s mother said, “Eh”, busy going over.
The old lady took Jenny’s hand and sat down on the chair, only then did she say, “Jenny, you and Shen met early and didn’t have a wedding, so I didn’t have time to send you anything, but in my heart, I like you as a granddaughter-in-law, with you here, I can trust you with confidence, no matter if it’s Shen or An’an.”
Jenny frowned as he heard the wrong stubble.
By this time, Mama He had come over with the box.
“Old lady, found it.”
She handed the box to the old lady with a smile, and Jenny took a look at it, only to see that it was a dark brown ancient sandalwood box with intricate and delicate patterns carved on it, and at a glance it was of the highest quality.
The old lady opened the box, but saw that it was covered with dark red velvet satin, and on the satin lay an antique sapphire necklace.
Jenny’s eyelids jumped and his face changed slightly.
For no other reason than that the necklace looks very familiar, it actually looks like….
The old lady took the necklace out and said with emotion, “This was obtained by your grandfather by accident from an antique dealer a long time ago, when I was still young, when we had just met, and he gave it to me as our engagement gift.
Jenny, you are a good child, grandmother has nothing else to give you, so I will give this necklace to you, hoping that you and Ah Shen, like us, can also be harmonious and peaceful for the rest of your life.”
In the meantime, Jenny Jing’s face wasn’t happy, and he was even slightly out of breath.
The old lady noticed her look, was surprised, and shouted, “Jenny.”
Jenny came back to his senses.
She was in a trance for a moment before smiling somewhat reluctantly, “Grandma, what did you just say?”
In the meantime, the old lady doesn’t even bother.
She didn’t continue what she had just said, but was concerned, “Are you okay?Is it somewhere uncomfortable?”
Jenny shook his head.
She pursed her lips and hesitated slightly for a moment before saying, “I’m fine, but at first glance I saw this necklace and remembered something.”
The old lady was very surprised.
“Oh?No wonder you’ve seen it before?”
It was reasonably impossible, after all, the necklace, which had been carefully treasured by her since the old man himself had given it to her decades ago, could not have been seen by an outsider.
However, Jenny nodded.
She reached up, from around her neck, and untied the necklace she’d been wearing.
“Grandma, look at this.”
The necklace was similar in shape to the one the old lady had taken out, except that the sapphire on it had been replaced with a ruby.
The old lady was all shocked.
Not only her, but also Mama He, who was watching, was stunned.
“What’s, what’s going on…”
This necklace is a treasure handed down from the previous dynasty, this is the only one, how could there be another one exactly like it?
Jenny Jing didn’t know the history of the necklace, but looking at the two of them’s reactions, he also knew that something was just not right about this matter.
The old lady reacted half-heartedly, her face paling, and asked, “Where did you get this necklace?”
Jenny Jing didn’t hide anything, so he now told her about his mother’s death and the legacy she had left to her.
The old lady was confused even after hearing that.
She frowned, half-heartedly, and held out her hand, “Can you give me a closer look at this necklace of yours?”
After receiving the necklace, the old lady looked at it carefully and her face came down with a relaxed expression.
“This necklace is a fake, although the workmanship is also exquisite and looks ancient and heavy, but if you look closely, you’ll see that there are many parts that are new, it would never be something left over from the previous dynasty for so long, rather it looks like it was imitated in recent years.”
Jenny was greatly appalled.
By all accounts, this item, which was left to her by her mother, as she had seen her mother wear it when she was a child, and she had purposely kept it for herself before she died, should not have been a copy by any means.
However, the old lady was repeatedly certain, and Jenny couldn’t find another better explanation at the moment, so she could only stop.
After she came out of the old lady’s room, Jenny took An’an back home with Biden Lu.
Ann had been delighted to learn that there was a little brother in the house, and was making a fuss to play with him.
Jenny handed over to Aunt Liu and Xiao Zhao to watch over them and not play too late, then went upstairs.
Back in the bedroom, after her shower, she took the two necklaces out and placed them side by side, sitting on the bed in contemplation.
Biden Lu came back at an unknown time, and when he saw her sitting there with her hand on her chin and a puzzled expression on her face, he raised his eyebrows slightly.
“What are you looking at?”
He walked over and sat down across from her.
Jenny Jing pushed the two jewellery boxes in front of him and said, “Look at these two necklaces.”
Biden Lu’s eyebrows rose, a little surprised.
The ruby one that Jenny always wore on his body, of course he had seen it.
Knowing it was a relic her mother had left her, it came as no surprise.
But the one next to it, because it was the old lady’s, the old lady has been treasured well, rarely take it out, and Biden Lu a man also does not pay much attention to these, so instead not much seen.
At this point, looking at the two necklaces laid out together, I thought, “Did Grandma give you this one?”
“Grandmother said that it was something left by the former royal family, when grandfather accidentally got it and gave it to her as an engagement gift, and she just passed this necklace on to me, but I didn’t realize I already had one beforehand, the one my mother left me, but Grandmother said it was a copy.”
She said, picking up the ruby one.
Biden Lu picked it up and took a closer look at it.
Before, he didn’t relate much to the jewellery these women used, so he didn’t pay attention to it.
At this time, a closer look revealed that the necklace was very new in colour, not to mention that it was from a previous dynasty, and even if Mo Caiwei had worn it for decades, it wasn’t very trustworthy.
In the meantime, he couldn’t help but frown.
Jenny sighed in annoyance.
“I don’t think my mum would lie to me, and I never really understood the significance of the reason she left me this necklace, do you think this necklace, could there really be a connection to Grandma’s one?”
Biden Lu looked at her.
The gaze, obscure and uncertain, seemed thoughtful.
Jenny was a little confused by what he was looking at, and didn’t know what he meant.
For a moment, Biden Lu put the necklace down before saying, “I remember that this item was being held by the old lady of the Jing family at first, so she might not know anything about the inside story.”
Jenny was stunned, then his face darkened.
“Forget it, she wouldn’t tell me even if she knew.”
Biden Lu was nonplussed by her words.
He was silent, helping her put both necklaces away, and said quietly, “In that case, there’s no need to think about it so much, it’s nothing more than a necklace left or right, and it won’t affect anything, so let’s just consider it a coincidence.”
Jenny thought about it and felt that it was, so he let him clean up as well.
After settling down, she went back downstairs to check on Ann and Happy, and settled the two little ones back to their respective rooms to sleep.
