Jenny will bring the soup over, is Liu Aunt specially boiled tonic soup, because this period of time Jenny’s body has not been very comfortable, always feel cold, and Biden Lu is too busy, so specially boiled some soup for them to mend.
Jenny had already drunk it, so she sat there with Biden Lu as she watched him drink the soup and said, “Master Guan is like this, the Guan family should be in chaos over there!”
At the mention of this, Biden Lu sneered.
“It’s more than a mess, it’s just a mess.”
“There are many children in the Guan family, and Uncle Er and Uncle Guan were not born of one mother, plus the side branches are standing in a forest, so naturally there is no shortage of fights between the two brothers, and fortunately the old man had a scare this time, so I’m sure that for the sake of the family’s safety and security, he will also arrange things behind him earlier, so as not to make too much of a fuss.”
Biden Lu nodded, “I hope so.”
He gave a slight pause, as if thinking of something, and looked at Jenny.
Jenny raised an eyebrow.
Biden Lu seemed to find it a bit funny and laughed lightly before saying, “The Gu family also sent someone over today, do you know who they sent?”
Jenny was stunned.
“I don’t think Gu’s youngest doesn’t have much of an aversion to Clara, the two seem to be getting along quite well, and this marriage, if there are no surprises, is probably a foregone conclusion.”
Jenny was speechless for a while, not really knowing what to say.
“Youngest Gu… does he know about Clara’s past?”
Biden Lu nodded, “I know, but according to him, who didn’t go over there?So he doesn’t care, he’s just ready to look into the future with Clara, but there’s something about finding true love.”
Jenny was thunderstruck by the phrase “true love”, and didn’t know what to say at the moment.
“It’s fine for the young master of the Gu family to marry a second marriage, but the point is that this second marriage partner still has such a bad reputation, and the Gu family is willing to do so?”
Biden Lu smirked.
“He’s not the only son of the Gu family, not to mention that the Gu family is offering 15% of the Guan shares as a dowry, not to mention the Gu family, if you look at Kyoto, any man would be impressed.”
Jenny gave him a look.
“Oh?So you’re tempted too?”
Biden Lu paused.
Look up at her seriously.
Then, suddenly spreading a smile and taking her hand, “I’m only smitten with you.”
I knew this man was a prude!
She gave him a blank look and withdrew her hand, “Okay, to be serious, according to you, this marriage between the Guan family and the Gu family, is the union set?Master Guan is actually willing to take 15% of the shares out as a dowry, doesn’t the rest of the Guan family have a problem with that?”
Biden Lu thought about it, shaking his head, “People are what they got back, this 15% share, in the end, is actually the shares of the year Guan JiWan, Guan JiWan is gone, this share, naturally should be given to her children, but unfortunately, the old man Guan has always thought that this is the real granddaughter, in fact, it is a fake.
He’s still alive now, and the shares are still in his own hands, but I just don’t know who the shares will fall into when he’s gone, and then I’m just afraid it’ll be a fight all over again, in short, the Guan family is a quagmire, and the Gu family will not necessarily be a good thing to get into this time like this.”
Jenny also nodded in agreement.
They talked for a while longer, until late at night, when they went back to their rooms to rest.
And on the other side, the shutters.
The old man had just been pulled back from the brink of life and death, and the family was relieved.
After the doctor’s meticulous examination, it has been confirmed that the old man’s life is not in danger for the time being, which is why everyone is relieved.
After tossing and turning for most of the night, everyone was tired, and after seeing the old man, they all went back to rest.
The doctor naturally needed to stay behind to continue caring for the old man, except that in addition to the doctor, at the old man’s behest, Clara was also left behind.
“Maya, come and sit down with Grandpa.”
Master Guan was lying on the bed and beckoned to Clara, who was busy going over.
“Grandpa, how are you?Anywhere else uncomfortable?”
Kwan waved his hand.
“I’m fine, an old bone, no matter how much it heals, it’s just that, but it’s just dragging on for time, I know all about it.”
Clara’s eyes reddened as she heard this.
“Grandpa, don’t say that, you’re a good man, you’ll live a long life.”
Master Guan was directly amused by her words.
Although the doctors had told him that he was out of danger, Master Guan’s body was still very weak, and even his voice, when he spoke, had a few hints of weakness and strain.
He reached out, touched Clara’s head, and said softly, “It doesn’t matter if Grandpa lives a hundred years, the most important thing is you, Clara, do you have any plans for your future?”
Clara’s eyes showed a dazed look at the words.
“I…I just need to stay with Grandpa.”
Master Guan laughed, “What’s the point of accompanying me?Not to mention how long I’ll last in this sick body, but you’ll have to have your own life when I’m gone.”
Clara’s tears were about to come down again when she heard that.
Master Guan was busy stopping from saying this anymore, but he sighed in his heart.
The boy, who was so kind-hearted, had no idea how much he had suffered before to become as sensitive as he was today.
He sighed and changed the subject.
“Clara, how do you feel about the young master of the Gu family who came over tonight?”
Clara was stunned.
He looked at him with wide, watery eyes, as if he didn’t quite understand what he meant.
The old man narrowed his eyes and smiled lovingly: “The Gu family is the top gentry family in Kyoto, just like our Guan family, it also has a history of more than a hundred years, when his old man was still alive, he was good friends with your grandfather, plus that youngest child of the Gu family has a good personality, sunshine, honest, unlike those boys outside who have so many playful intestines, if you are with him in theTogether, you’ll definitely be well taken care of and Grandpa is more at ease, don’t you think?”
Clara instantly blushed, lowering her head so shyly that she almost hated to bury her head in the ground.
“I, I don’t know.”
Master Guan laughed.
“Don’t be shy, isn’t it normal for a man to marry a woman when she’s older?”
Clara barely smiled.
“Grandpa, I don’t want to get married just yet.”
Master Kwan froze and frowned.
“What’s wrong?Did Maya not like him?Or is there another favorite?”
Clara waved her hand in succession, “No no, I, I…”
She bit her lip, looking like she was having trouble talking, her eyes were so red, and her whole body looked so pitiful and aggrieved that one couldn’t help but want to protect it at first glance.
Master Guan couldn’t stand it any longer at first glance, and asked incessantly, “Are you still worried about something?”
“Grandpa, I was married once and so many things have happened before, I’m afraid…”
Master Guan’s face sank.
“That’s all in the past, what’s in the past is in the past, you don’t need to take it to heart, that youngest child Gu is a seeker and doesn’t care about that, so you don’t need to worry about that at all.”
Clara bit her lip and shook her head heavily.
“No, it’s all my fault, if I hadn’t been discerning, if I had been able to find out about Dad and Grandma sooner, there wouldn’t have been anything that happened back there, even though I’m back in the Kwan family now, I know in my heart that my past is a black spot that can’t be erased, no matter who it is.
I’ve already disgraced my grandfather, now why do I need to scandalize another person?It would be fine if Young Master Gu cared, but it’s not like he doesn’t care, he’s so nice, so I can’t hurt him and have people poke him later and say he’s married to a murderer’s daughter, I can’t do that!”
King cried out, covering his face and losing his voice.
Master Guan was so angry that he tensed his face, and the air pressure in the entire room dropped.
Half a dozen times before he raged, “Nonsense!What murderer’s daughter?You’re just their adopted daughter!Your own mother is the daughter of the Ji family and has nothing to do with their Jing family!What does the evil that they Jing family did have to do with you?”
Probably overly emotional, Master Guan coughed heavily in the middle of his sentence.
Clara was busy reassuring him, passing out water and patting his back, and it took a while for the old man to slow down.
Clara looked at him worriedly, “Grandpa, are you okay?I’m sorry, it’s all my fault, I shouldn’t have said that to you…”
Kwan waved his hand, his voice feeble.
“I’m fine, good boy, don’t worry, I’ll take care of this matter for you, those voices outside are just some vulgar words, don’t take it to heart, I know, you have a problem with the Lu family daughter-in-law, and because of this, I want you to marry the youngest Gu, with the Gu family as a backing, even if grandfather is gone in the future, the Lu family daughter-in-law wouldn’t dare to bully you.
Also, the 15% of the shares that your mother left behind, I transferred all of them to your name, you must remember that no matter what Gu’s youngest child tells you, you can never transfer the shares to him, this is the basis of your security, you must learn to protect yourself and never trust others.”
He said, and coughed heavily twice, and Clara had burst into tears.
“Maya, I’m sorry for your mother, but if I hadn’t insisted that she be separated from that man back then, you wouldn’t have been stolen from her, let alone go into exile and suffer for so many years.
Your mother died depressed because of me, and I just want you to live to make up for what I owe to your mother, and to you.”
Clara grasped his hand and sobbed.
And then, outside the door.
Guan Jili listened to the conversation in the room, his face gloomy.
With a heavy snort, he turned away.
The Guan family’s old house was formed from three townhouses, with the oldest Guan living in one, and the eldest and second oldest Guan living in one each.
Once outside, I saw that not far away, Xu Hui was holding Guan Jiming’s arm, heading to the
Come this way.
Seeing him exhale and come out, Xu Hui greeted him with a smile, “Big brother, it’s so late, you haven’t gone back to your room to rest!”
Guan Ji Li snorted sarcastically, “I’m not the only one who didn’t sleep, am I?I see that my second brother and second sibling are also in good spirits, it’s two o’clock in the middle of the night, and they’re still walking outside, so they’re not afraid of spreading the cold.”
Guan Ji Ming’s face was calm, and he smiled lightly, “We were worried about Dad, so we wanted to wait until later to sleep.”
Guan Jili scoffed twice, “Come on, what do you guys have in mind, I still don’t know?It’s just that we’re afraid Dad might die suddenly and not get a will or a smaller share of the family fortune, and who’s here under some grandiose pretense that we don’t know who yet?”
Guan Jiming’s face sank.
“Brother, if that’s what you have in mind, I can’t help it, but you can’t be mean, and just because you fancy Dad’s legacy doesn’t mean everyone is like you.”
Guan Ji Li gritted his teeth in anger, “Enough!Are you a gentleman?You’re a gentleman who would find a little btch to confuse Dad’s mind?If you were a gentleman, you’d let that little btch cheat Dad out of 15% of his stock?I’m telling you, these shares belong to the Guan family, and they’re owned by the Guan family, so don’t try to take them all.Otherwise, I won’t let you get away with it even if the fish die!”
Guan Ji Ming frowned.
“Brother, those shares are from Dad to Maya, and they have nothing to do with us.”
“Ha!”Guan Jili seemed to have heard some big joke, “Clara?With her?Who the hell is she?Pa’s giving her to her now because he’s listening to you and thinks she’s Wanda’s child, and if he finds out that she’s not at all who these shares will end up in?”
Guan Jiming’s face suddenly sank all over.
“Brother, don’t be ridiculous!”
“Am I talking nonsense, or are you guys guilty?!I’ve known about this for a long time. I was just trying to keep it a secret for Dad’s sake. You’re out of your mind!I’ll tell you, no one will stop you from doing what you want to do, but I won’t back down one step on the stock, so if you don’t believe me, we’ll see who wins in the end!”
He said, and exhaled.
In the meantime, Xu Hui worriedly took Guan Ji Ming’s arm and said softly, “Ji Ming, will big brother really tell Dad about Clara’s identity like this?”
Guan Ji Ming shook his head.
“No, Dad’s will hasn’t been published yet, and it won’t do him any good to have an accident at this time, and even if he wants to tear up, he’ll wait until Dad actually announces the contents of his will.”
Xu Hui sighed.
“We’re actually doing this to try and keep Dad going a little longer, haven’t you noticed?Ever since that Clara came back, Dad’s health has been much better, and his whole body is much more energetic, and the reason for this sudden attack is completely unexpected.”
Guan Ji Ming nodded.
“Yeah, the Guan family is relying on Dad to hold it together right now, if he leaves, the Guan family is bound to scatter like a plate of sand here and there, and then, no matter who they meet the Guan family won’t be able to defeat them, so I’m afraid they’ll really have to be removed from the four big families.”
Xu Hui was also worried at the news.
Guan Ji Ming patted her hand and reassured her, “The good news is that Dad is fine now, we don’t have to worry too much, so let’s keep watch for a while longer, and if the situation is still stable, go back to rest.”
Xu Hui nodded.
The next day, Master Guan suddenly released the news that he was going to hold an early birthday banquet for himself.
Master Guan is seventy-six years old this year, and although it’s not a whole life, at this age, being able to host a birthday banquet every year is considered a walk of joy.
Besides, he was now seriously ill, so if a birthday banquet could be held at this time and also achieve the effect of rushing the happiness, naturally no one in the Guan family would have a problem with it.
By the time Jenny received the news, it was already the next afternoon.
Looking at the invitation presented in front of her, she was actually a little surprised.
After all, Master Guan didn’t look like someone who would believe Okiyoshi’s words.
Besides, he was the one who initiated this incident, but anyone who has been sick knows that when they are not feeling well, they actually just want to be quiet, and not many people really like to have fun.
But the invitations have been sent out, and for whatever reason, naturally, you have to go to the appointment.
The birthday banquet was to be held on a weekend evening at the Guan family’s old house.
It was said to be a birthday banquet, but there weren’t many people invited, but it was people from the four great families, plus some other counted gentry in Kyoto.
On this day, Jenny arrived very early, and since it was the weekend, Ann didn’t have to go to school, so she also brought Ann with her.
Biden Lu had something to do with his company and would arrive later.
Instead, it was Master Lu and Old Mrs. Sham who arrived right behind her.
After all, it is decades of friends, although the old man Lu because of his own health is also not good, rarely go out, usually if there is anything, but also mostly send Biden Lu over.
But today was the birthday banquet after all, so it was better to attend it myself.
The Guan family’s old mansion was very lively, with countless people coming and going to give gifts and congratulations.
Jenny Jing first took An’an to congratulate Master Guan on his birthday before going into the back dining room to wait for both Master Lu and the old lady.
However, instead of waiting for the old man and old lady, they waited for Guan Yuewan and Ji Yunshu first.
After what had happened before, Guan Yue Wan and Ji Yun Shu had obtained the consent of both families to hold an engagement ceremony.
Now it’s only until the end of the year, when the wedding is expected to be official.
Jenny was happy for them, so he pulled them in for a short chat.
Ji Yunshu smiled, “When I came in, I saw Second Brother and Uncle Lu, there were a lot of people outside, they were tangled up, it’ll probably take a while for them to come in.”
Jenny nodded, she knew that according to the identity of Biden Lu and Master Lu, suddenly attending such an occasion, there were naturally many people coming up to climb the friendship.
Although the land family was not above being in the company of these people, business was a matter of losing face in the field.
Therefore, I’m afraid that the busiest tonight was not only Old Master Guan, but also the other heads of the four great families.
Jenny Jing looked at Guan Yue Wan and smiled, “When are you planning to get married?”
Guan Yue Wan said softly, “The end of the year, right now the research institute is too busy to take the time for now, we’ve already agreed to have a wedding at the end of the year as soon as this research project in hand is over.”
Jenny Jing smiled, “Then I’ll congratulate you guys in advance.”
Guan Yue Wan revealed a shy and sweet smile.
Ji Yunshu looked in the direction of the entrance and suddenly leaned forward a bit and whispered, “I heard that the old man is not only holding the birthday banquet early this time, but I’m afraid there’s also a desire to make a name for Clara.”
Jenny was stunned.
“A proper name?What do you mean?”
Ji Yunshu explained: “When Guan Jiwan’s child was lost, it caused a sensation in Kyoto, Guan Jiwan tried many ways to find the child, but in the end, it was all to no avail, and as time went by, it was left unsettled.
But that said, there were still many people who knew about the child, and Clara was back this time, ostensibly the Miss of the Guan family, but in reality, very few people outside knew about it, and there was no status at home.
Master Guan probably felt that his days were numbered, so he wanted to take this opportunity to announce her identity to the public, so that in the future, everyone in Kyoto would know that she was Guan Jiwan’s daughter, and if the people of the Guan family would bully or treat her badly in the future, they would inevitably be poked in the back.
Therefore, even if not for her sake, for the sake of her own reputation, face will be better for her.”
Jenny Jing was slightly stunned at the words.
She thought about it carefully and realized that it was really like what Ji Yunshu had said, but if he hadn’t brought it up, I’m afraid she wouldn’t have thought of this layer.
She frowned at the thought, her eyes flashing with worry.
If he finds out that Clara is not his granddaughter at all, but just an impostor, what will he think?
Next to him, a struggle also flashed under Guan Yue Wan’s eyes.
She looked at Jenny, her gaze somewhat complicated.
“Jenny, you… know that Clara is not the Guan family’s true granddaughter, don’t you?”
Jenny was stunned, returning to her senses, and quickly looked around to make sure no one could hear her speak before nodding.
“I know better than anyone what kind of background Clara comes from, but this matter involves the internal matters of the Guan family, we are outsiders after all, we can’t talk too much, besides even if we tell the truth, it’s unknown whether it’s good or bad for the old man, so it’s best not to say anything.”
Guan Yue Wan nodded.
She dropped her eyes slightly, her gaze falling on Jenny’s neck.
But she was wearing a beautifully crafted diamond chain around her neck, not the same necklace she wore before.
Guan Yue Wan’s face turned pale.
“Jenny, where’s your necklace?”
Jenny was startled and looked down at her neck.
“The necklace?What necklace?This one?Didn’t you always wear it properly?”
She said, and mentioned the collarbone chain around her neck.
But Guan Yue Wan was anxious.
“Not this one, I mean the one you were wearing before, the rustic-looking ruby necklace.”
Jenny reacted, “Oh, that one ah, I put it at home, not today…”
She abruptly paused.
Shocked, he looked at Guan Yue Wan.
Guan Yuewan seemed to have realized something, and her face changed, a flicker of a guilty conscience flashing across her eyes.
Jenny’s face sank suddenly.
Ji Yunshu hadn’t noticed the jewellery on Jenny’s body before, so none of them understood what they were saying.
Sensing that the atmosphere was a bit delicate, each looked at the two men and asked curiously, “What are you guys talking about?What’s going on?”
Guan Yue Wan barely smiled, “No, nothing.”
Jenny Jing, however, looked at her seriously, not a smile on his face, and his cold eyes were also filled with questions and coldness.
“Yue Wan, how did you know that the necklace I was wearing around my neck earlier was a ruby pendant?”
